Mossad Urges Netanyahu to Bomb Alleged Iranian Sub Base

According to George Webb, Israel has discovered a secret Iranian Submarine base. After the chemical weapons fiasco the sheer gall of this announcement is impressive.  Never mind the fact that Webb is a member of the Mossad .  Nevertheless, he calmly states that Israel will strike within 24 to 48 hours.

Webb began making videos shortly after Trump was elected, leveling dramatic accusations at Hillary and Huma Abedin concerning their relations with the ISI, the Inter-Service Intelligence, the premier intelligence service of Pakistan.  However, these accusations would only be dramatic to people who hadn’t read the book Deception: Pakistan, the United States, and the Secret Trade in Nuclear Weapons.  Pakistan has been engaging in ‘unauthorized proliferation activities’, and the United States has been covering it up.  For years.  Foreign trade in nuclear technology was Pakistan’s foreign policy.  But it’s worse than that.

For three decades, consecutive US administrations, Republican and Democrat, as well as the governments in Britain and other European countries, had allowed Pakistan to acquire highly restricted nuclear technology.  In a disastrous epoch, key state assets were then misdirected and countermanded in order to disguise how Pakistan had sold it on.  Intelligence gathering in the US was blunted while federal agencies, including the Departments of State and Defense, were corralled into backing the White House agenda and forced to sidestep Congress and break federal laws.  Officials who tried to stop the charade were rough-housed, smeared or purged, inflicting terrible damage on America and Europe’s ability to see sharply.  The US Congress played along too, by folding beneath White House pressure during a period in which political debate that dared level hard questions was portrayed as unpatriotic or even seditious.

This illicit trade was common knowledge before the US made the decision to go to war in Iraq.  Nevertheless, here is George Webb spelling out our doom.  If there are any military strategists out there who want to toss around possible strategies for Iran, now would be the time.  The Iranians surely know they are going to be attacked, but if they defend themselves or retaliate, they play into their enemies’ hands.

Here’s Netanyahu’s statement, which doesn’t mention the sub base:

Undoing Partitions in the Middle East

Here in the United States we call it divide-and-rule.  In the Middle East they call it partitioning. The Council for Interreligious dialogue is working in Iraq to eradicate finatical discourse in the name of religion.  You could say they are working to rebuild the cooperation that has been torn down by the global bullies.  And it’s working.  Below is the text of an April 25  article on La Croix International:

The local Mandean community will host the next meeting of the Iraqi Council for Interreligious Dialogue on April 26. These meetings between Shiite and Sunni Muslims, Christians, Yazidis and Mandeans are a genuine achievement in a country where inter-communal mistrust is the general rule.

Forty people joined the last meeting of the Iraqi Council for Interreligious Dialogue hosted by the Chaldean Patriarchate of Baghdad on March 1. They included Sunni and Shiite Muslims, Yazidis, Orthodox and Catholic Christians as well as Mandeans and even an audacious few of no religion.

“Together before God to eradicate fanatical discourse in the name of religion” provided the day’s theme of discussion.

Although it is now rare for members of different ethnic and religious communities to meet together, the discussions were “very frank and very free,” several participants reported.

With his usual frankness, Chaldean Patriarch Louis Raphael Sako of Babylon, who hosted the meeting, raised several challenging questions.

“On Judgment Day, will God ask us whether we are Shiite or Sunni Muslim, Catholic or Orthodox Christians, Mandeans or Yazidis? The question God is likely to ask us will rather be ‘What did you do for your brother? What did you offer your people?’” he said.

The next meeting of the Council, which is scheduled  for  April 26, will be hosted by the Mandean (or Sabean) community.

The Sunni community will host the May meeting, which will fall during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and participants will break their fast together.

Then it will be the turn of the Yazidis to host a meeting, a highly symbolic occasion for this multi-millennial religion, which was undoubtedly the most persecuted by ISIS.

“Five years ago, it was far from certain that people would accept to be seated at the same table,” said Sayyed Jawad Al-Khoei, who founded the Council with Dominican Father Amir Jaje.

“Progressively, confidence began to develop and we have even become friends,” he said. “Now many people want to join us.”

A Shiite, Jawad Al-Khoei, who is secretary-general of an institute for training in Islamic sciences at Najaf, particularly recalled a significant meeting in which ten women from various communities were invited to share a meal.

“One of them cried. She told us ‘I am here with you seated at the same table but my child has been rejected by his classmates who called him a kafir (unbeliever),” he said.

In Jawad Al-Khoei’s view, the creation of the Interreligious Council has had a direct impact on the Iraqi crisis.

“It became a necessity when ISIS forced people to come together,” he said during a visit to France for a Senate conference on “Citizenship and Justice in the Middle East” and another at the Catholic Institute of Paris on “Dialogue between Shiites and Christians.”

“We did not have any major ambitions except to break down the barriers between us or to agree to share a meal together when many regard this as impure,” he said.

“Once we are able to identify the main problems, we will contact the NGOs to work with them,” he said.

In an effort to build confidence, the Council meets behind closed doors and declines aid from government or from political parties.

In another oddity in a country where honors are often sought, the group has no president, treasurer or secretary.

How do the highest Iraqi Shiite authorities look on the initiative?

“As soon as you do something in Iraq, you are criticized,” said Jawad Al-Khoei.

“There are certainly many conservatives who disapprove,” said the young cleric. “However, the general atmosphere is positive and we could not have begun without protection from the most significant ayatollahs.”

Ignoring the opponents of interreligious dialogue, the Council seeks to rely on the “silent majority” of the Iraqi community.

“If, at worst, jihadists represent 2 to 3 percent of the population, those who are opposed to violence represent a far greater number,” Jawad Al-Khoei said.

“Most Muslims have no problem with Christians or Yazidis but they simply do not know them,” he said.

“We need to show them that dialogue is possible and that religious leaders guide them in this direction,” Jawad Al-Khoei said.

During the last meeting, several possible actions were discussed, including requesting the Iraqi Parliament to ban extremist religious discourse, to review school programs and to end each celebration with a prayer “for all the Iraqi people and not just for one ethnic group.”

 

Syria’s Kurds are in a Fine Mess

In order for the US and its corporations to control the resources of the Middle East and the routes needed to get them to market, they partition the people.  The Kurds have been used as a partitioning tool in that region because their statelessness has made them vulnerable to anyone powerful enough to promise them their own state. Israel has been making use of them since the 1960s. (Partitioning means the process of causing strife between different religions and ethnicities.)   This could explain Putin’s willingness to let Turkey attack the Kurds in Afrin, however I think there is a darker reason. The US plans to have the Saudis rebuild much of northeastern Syria.

Though the US initially allied itself with the Kurds in northeastern Syria, opposition from Turkey has led Washington to focus more on working with Arabs in the area, particularly those allied with or formerly part of Saudi-allied Wahhabi groups, in order to create a Saudi-controlled enclave that could be used to destabilize government-controlled areas of Syria for years to come.  The area is set to become much like the Idlib province, which is also essentially an enclave for Wahhabi terrorists.

The US plan to create a Wahhabi enclave in northeast Syria was directly referenced in a Defense Intelligence Agency report from 2012.

The plan to partition Iraq was drafted by Vice President Dick Cheney and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz.  It was to be divided into sectarian statelets of Muslim Sunnis, Muslim Shi’as and ethnic Kurds.  The destruction and partitioning of Iraq was to eliminate the possibility of an anti-American government because the capital would be in Amman, Jordan, and Iran and Syria would be isolated from each other.

The Iraqi Kurds have benefitted from the West’s policies more than other group. They get a share of oil and gas profits produced in the region.  As of 2015 their share was in excess of $10 million every month.  During the Bush and Obama administrations it was mostly corporate actors that took steps toward creating an independent state within Iraq, controlled by the US-allied Kurds.  As of 2017 the area of Syria controlled by the US-backed Kurds and connected to the Kurdish state in Iraq made a larger independent Kurdistan more feasible.

Trump has been more open about the partition of Iraq than other presidents, probably because of the presence of people like Rex Tillerson in his administration.  In 2011 ExxonMobil brokered an oil deal with the Kurdistan region that bypassed Iraq’s central government.  Other corporations, including Chevron and Gazprom, followed Exxon’s lead.  By 2014 more than 80 foreign corporations had struck deals with Kurdistan.   Surprisingly Turkey buys significant amounts of gas and oil from the Iraqi Kurds.  Turkey’s ruling party has even said that they have a right to self-autonomy.

The State Department’s recent willingness to openly consider the partitioning of Iraq is probably also due to Ali Khedery, a former Pentagon official who served in the US coalition authority in Iraq and a former ExxonMobil executive.  Khedery is founder of Dragoman Ventures, a firm connected to the Committee to Destroy ISIS.  The Committee’s executive director is Sam Patten, who has connections to members of Trump’s campaign and transition teams, as well as to Iraqi oligarchs suspected of having ties to US intelligence and insurgent elements in Iraq.

Syria’s Kurdistan exports its oil to Iraq’s Kurdistan where it is refined and sold to Turkey. It’s likely that the same foreign companies that work with the Kurds in Iraq are developing the oil trade of Syria. That would probably include Gazprom.

The Syrian Kurds have been in a precarious position at least since 2012.  But considering who their business partners are, there are no guarantees for the Kurds in Iraq either.

Koch-Adelson Alliance Captured the White House

The Koch brothers now have an interest in foreign policy, specifically in the Middle East, in the form of a collaboration with Sheldon Adelson.  They were motivated to form this alliance in 2012 in response to the reelection of Barack Obama and they played a large part in the 2016 election.  They have probably been influential in recent decisions in the Middle East as well. 

Previous to 2012 the Koch network had focused on domestic matters with an emphasis on shrinking the federal government, deregulation, and tax ‘reform’.  Adelson’s interests on the other hand have been Israel, expanding defense spending, and promoting a hawkish foreign policy.  However they have always shared other political and ideological aims such as weakening unions, killing estate taxes, and mobilizing veterans to vote.  And they were both determined to win the White House in 2016.  If the Libertarians who voted for Trump because of his anti-war rhetoric are wondering what went wrong, this alliance might be the answer. 

The Kochs may not have supported Trump’s presidential campaign but his election didn’t slow them down.  As of November 2017 the Koch brothers had close ties with 44 Trump officials.  The officials are listed in this article along with their position in the administration and their ties to the Kochs.  According to an article published in The Hill in April of this year, Democratic senators have demanded an explanation from Trump of his ties to the Kochs.  The senators are concerned about a report sent to a group of Koch donors, the Seminar network, that took credit for a dozen new policies passed by the Trump administration, including the GOP tax bill and the repeal of the Obama-era Clean Power Plan. 

The Koch turn to foreign policy, which coincides with Israel’s foreign policy, is bearing fruit in Israel.  In 2017 the Kochs made their first investment in Israel through a newly formed high-tech fund.

Koch Disruptive Technologies (KDT), a subsidiary of the brothers’ Koch Industries, led a group of investors putting an initial $75 million into the Israeli startup Insightec.  Elbit Imaging a company that is traded on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and holds 31% of Insightec, made the announcement on Thursday.   

Haifa-based Insightec was not only the first Koch investment in Israel but the first investment of any kind for KDT, which was only formed last month. 

In addition Koch Fertilizer Inc. hopes to benefit from the deposits of phosphates, a key ingredient in the production of nitrogen fertilizer.  This deposit contains nearly a tenth of the world’s total deposits of phosphates.  Koch Fertilizer already controls more than 70 percent of the world’s phosphate supply, but demand is outstripping supply so the company is eager for access to Anbar Province

 

Is Freemasonry Behind the Attack on Assad?

My theory about Friday’s bombing of Syria is that Freemasonry was running the show. Some articles I’ve read assume, as I do, that it had something to do with Freemasonry because of the date, April 13, which fell on a Friday this year—Friday the 13th. It was a Friday the 13th in 1307 when the Knights Templar were rounded up to be tortured and burned at the stake. And the Knights Templar are associated with Freemasons. But the articles don’t deal with alliances between individual Freemasons. It’s those alliances that might explain what we’re seeing.

I’ve deleted the main part of this article.  I wrote it because of the war posturing in Syria.  I did say it was a theory but I’ve decided to delete it in the chance that any part of it is wrong, and for the sake of many freemasons who had nothing to do with the rush to war.

This is a War in the Making

See this link for the latest statements warning Trump against striking Syria.  First is Democracy Now’s report of a statement from Bernie Sanders:

On Wednesday, Sanders tweeted, “President Trump has no legal authority for broadening the war in Syria. It is Congress, not the president, who determines whether our country goes to war, and Congress must not abdicate that responsibility.”

Democracy Now also reports that Russia’s U.N. Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya directly addressed his U.S. counterpart, Nikki Haley at the United Nations Security Council.

Vasily Nebenzya: “You are very good at threatening. And the threats you are proffering, that you are now stating vis-à-vis Syria, should make us seriously worried—all of us—because we could find ourselves on the threshold of some very sad and serious events. I would once again ask you, once again beseech you, to refrain from the plans that you’re currently developing for Syria.”

And finally there is this warning reported by Press TV.  Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has said that the threat of using force against a UN member state is a gross violation of the UN charter.

“We call upon… members of the international community to seriously consider the possible consequences of such accusations, threats and especially action (against Syria),” she added.

This escalation must be stopped in any way possible.  When will you people stop being confused about Donald Trump?  Will you at least consider that he may be the Clinton’s Plan-B, and controlled by the same people?

 

Is April 17, 2018 Important to the War Hawks?

Previously I wrote about the occult speech that Christine Lagarde gave in 2014, and about how she provided misleading instructions for the calculation of the dates in her speech.  I was thinking about how the starting dates for World Wars I and II happen to add up to the number 7, a number highlighted by Lagarde in her speech, and I decided to calculate the date of April 17, 2018. I used 17 as the day because in occult circles the number 17 is a significant number. The result was disturbing.

According to Eisler the Greek alphabet is the basis for the calculation. The letters of the Greek alphabet are numbered from 1 to 24 and then the numbers are assigned to the letters in a given word. The numbers are then added together in a specific way. The number 17 adds up to 8 (1+7=8).

April is Απρίλιος in Greek. The letters in the word ‘April’ add up to 96. This can be reduced to 15 (9+6) and then to 6 (1+5) but it’s not necessary to reduce it.  You can use 96, 15 or 6. When you add the month, April, the day, 17, and the year 2018 it always comes out to 7. Use the number 96: (9+6+1+7+2+1+8= 34 and 3+4=7); or the number 15: (1+5+1+7+2+1+8=25 and 2+5=7); or number 6: (6+1+7+2+1+8=25 and 2+5=7).

A word of warning–it’s too easy to ascribe real meaning to these interpretations.  I have no idea if I’m calculating the numbers correctly.  Furthermore, according to some YouTubers, September 23, 2017 was supposed to bring the apocalypse but it passed like any other day. And when Condoleeza Rice likened the destruction of the Middle East to‘painful birth’ she was referring to chapter 12 of the Book of Revelation.  It’s likely she was only trying to reassure her fundamentalist base–we don’t know if she associated her administration’s policies with the Book of Revelation.  The question is, should we take Trump’s threats of immediate war more seriously?

The following is Robert Eisler’s discussion of the number 17.  I’m aware that some of his theories are controversial.   His theory that Jesus was a zealot has been refuted by Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) and I accept Ratzinger’s correction of Eisler’s theory.  However I trust Eisler’s knowledge of numerology.  I’ll also mention another possible controversy: in this chapter he talks about the similarity of Christian beliefs to pagan beliefs, but I don’t think that’s his view. In the next chapter he agrues that ancient Judaism is the source of the Christian stories, not paganism.  However I welcome corrections to the way I’m using this material.

Page 118 of Orpheus the Fisher Eisler includes a discussion of John 21:7-11:

Again, part of the secret hidden behind the number 153 of the fish is explained by S. Augustine (Tract. 123 in Joann. Ev.) on Pythagorean principles. Indeed, again according to Philo (vol. i., p. 10, Mangey), the ‘fulfilment’ of any potentiality, say 3, is 1+2+3=6; the ‘fulfilment’ of 4, the famous tetraktys, is 1+2+3+4=10, etc. Consequently the ‘fulfilment’ of 17 is 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16+17=153; now, as Augustine has well pointed out, ‘ten’ is with Philo the number of the decalogue, while ‘seven’ represents, according to Rev. 1:4, 3:1, the Holy Spirit. Thus ‘seventeen’ symbolises the ‘fulfilment’ of the ‘law’ by the superaddition of ‘grace,’ the charismatic gift of the Spirit, which descends upon man in the Christian baptism, and ‘one hundred and fifty-three’ is again the ‘fulfilment’ of this most holy and most significant number ‘seventeen.

September 2015 Heresy & the Cult of Christian Numerology & Kabbalah Practice

The Alchemy of Alex Jones

Alex Jones seems to think that because someone on the ‘left’ calls for an end to globalization he’s won the lottery. I’m not suddenly one of his followers if I think globalization is a bad idea. I said something similar before the 2016 election and I still think Bernie Sanders would make a better president than Donal Trump. It kills me how hard these pundits work to keep their followers in this left-right game. Do they really believe there are two distinct sides with good guys and bad guys or is it just part of their act?

It’s not just the political posturing. Anyone who would go on the air the way Alex Jones did and make political points at the expense of a guy like Bernie Sanders is not a nice person. Jones acted like a guy who is not capable of expressing himself like a grownup and who’s not sure he knows what he’s talking about so he blurts out thoughtless schoolyard insults instead.

Globalization, or as Jones so charmingly pronounces it—globu-lazation—is not the only issue in town. In fact, there is a whole world of being that he seems to know nothing about. For starters, there’s kindness and decency and unselfishness and just plain old good manners. And there’s playing fair—now there’s one for the Republicans. Of course that would require them to acknowledge the existence of other people.

Anyway, I suspect Trump is just following orders, not unlike Jones and his buddy—call him RC for short. And whatever the order-givers have in mind, it’s safe to say that the banksters and the oligarchs are going to make out like bandits. That is not the way Bernie would have played it. Not even close. Yes, I called for an end to globalization but Alex Jones and I are not even on the same planet.
