Israel’s Threats, Challenges, and Opportunities

Vision 2020:

Israel’s Threats, Challenges, and Opportunities

The following is  a report of a lecture held at Adelaide University (on 13 Nov 2019).  The speakers were Boaz Ganor and Ehud Yaari.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The two speakers are experts in their fields and knowledgeable on the Geo-politics of the Middle East. What follows are my impressions and a paraphrase of some important themes.  As I did not take notes, my  bad for any  misrepresentation.  I will contact the speakers and make them aware in case they wish to add any clarification or corrections.

The Palestinian problem

Ehud Yarri  placed his phone on the table and it immediately began to ping. The phone was being updated with news on the rocket attacks. This is what is currently happening in Israel:

 

 

A rather dramatic introduction to a lecture discussing threats.  Solutions to the Palestinian problem were discussed.  The "one state"  or "one man, one vote" option was rejected as it is inevitable that demographics would eventually create a minority Jewish nation. So  there is no chance of completely integrating Jew and Arab via the ballot box and democratic voting.  The two state solution was also rejected. Gaza is a "state-let" and is obviously geographically separated from the West Bank.  How can this entity function as an independent sovereign nation with a military? It is not politically viable, moreover, Ehud Yarri points out that corruption, patronage and dysfunction bedevils the Palestinian  modus operandi.   Ehud Yarri proposed walking away but offering help and a "strong embrace".  It is obvious that a "strong embrace" can be interpreted in many ways. A python has a strong embrace. However, I am sure that Ehud Yarri  meant it in a sympathetic fashion. His desire for real engagement and sustainable peace was (in my view) genuine.  The problem is (as he admits) that when Sharon walked away from Gaza by dismantling  all of the Israeli settlements in  2005 it ultimately  led to the current Hamas government in Gaza.  It did not lead to any detente or improved conditions for Palestinians. They are basically left stewing in their own juice in a dysfunctional enclave, supported by US subsidies.  In my opinion completely disengaging is not a solution either.  Ehud Yarri's reference to the occasional need to "mow the grass" was presumably in the context of the recent operations that resulted in retaliatory rocket attacks.   When I mow the grass at home it does not fire rockets back at me!   Suffice to say that any "solution" that perpetuates continuing low level conflict is in my view no solution.  Nobody wins.

 

It seems then that the Israelis are weary of trying to find a Palestinian solution.  The Palestinians are like a festering sore that will not heal.  The opinion seems to be shared by the other Arab nations in the region. Ehud Yarri succinctly stated that the Arabs do not announce policy changes "in front of the microphone".  It is obvious that there has been a shift in attitude towards Israel among many Arab nations. Yet, the Palestinian problem remains, not only in Israel but also in neighboring Jordan.  While the Arab countries are becoming more friendly non-Arab states like Turkey and Iran are becoming more hostile.

 

However, I for one cannot blame the Palestinians.  They have taken a leaf out of the Jewish play-book and played their "victim" status to perfection.  The Palestinians are victims.  They are the victims of their own venal leadership, victims of Geo-political strategy and victims of Zionism.  Inconvenient they might be, but they will not voluntarily disappear into that long dark night.   In many ways their defiant obstinacy matches that of the ancient Hebrews,  who God called a stubborn and stiff-necked generation.

The Israeli Election

Ehud Yarri stated that after two elections at stalemate and with a third looming his "wet dream" was that a unity government could be formed with a rotating Prime Minister Ship.  Nentanyahu could possibly take the first "turn" and delay his judicial woe by launching an appeal that could take as long as four years to reach any conclusion.

The Trump Peace

According to Ehud Yarri the Trump peace initiative would not achieve anything. Kushner  et al had been made aware of the intransigence and hopeless condition of the Palestinians.  Although Trump had gifted Israel the embassy and the Golan, those were mere gestures. His withdrawal from Syria and "back-down"  to Iran are considered disappointing and dangerous.

The Arab Spring

The other speaker, Boaz Ganor is well connected in the counter-terrorism and intelligence worlds. He has been to the White House and met political scientist and diplomat Condoleezza Rice who was the Secretary of State under George Bush. Boaz Ganor started his discourse with a reference to the title of the talk "Vision" stating that even the prophets would have difficulty with a "vision" of Israel's future.   This reminded me of Proverbs 29v.8: -

"Where there is no vision, the people perish: 
but he that keepeth the law, happy is he".

The nation does not keep the law like Abraham did (Gen 26:5). Their forefather Abraham kept the whole Law before it was even given!  (LOL)  If only they knew what that meant (John 8:39). 

 

The discussion moved onto the subject of the "Arab Spring" the result of youthful uprisings encouraged by the internet and the desire to have democratic "freedoms" like the West.  However, Boaz Ganor said that the Israeli's did not call it the "Arab Spring" but rather the "Arab Winter" because  under the Muslim Brotherhood countries like Egypt became Islamic theocracies.  President Barack Obama had signaled the change to the Muslim world in a speech called "A New Beginning"  on 4 June 2009, from the Major Reception Hall at Cairo University in Egypt.  Members of the Muslim Brotherhood "sat in the front row".   As soon as "democratic" elections were held the people voted the Brotherhood into power who proceeded to write a constitution for an Islamic theocracy based on Sharia law.  As we know, the brotherhood government  was overthrow and replaced by the military el-Sisi by a coup d'état in 2012.

 

At this point I questioned why, if the West believes in democracy, they ignored the will of the Egyptian people to elect an Islamic government.  Moreover, I stated that the uprisings were not spontaneous as the neoconservatives had stated that seven countries would face regime change over a five year period.  I pointed out that a hidden hand was at work in the recent Turkish coup (aligning Turkey towards Russia) and in the Saudi coup that brought MBS to power.  For good measure I asked if any WMD had been found yet in Iraq (LOL).   Of course, this drew an exchange of looks between the two speakers and provoked some dissembling but no real answers.  

The question of Iran and Russia

Boaz Ganor (and Ehud Yarri) emphasized that Russia was not a super power and had a small economy.  They stressed that Israeli military action in Syria was coordinated with Russia, that Putin has a flat in Jerusalem and that Netanyahu spends a lot of time phoning and joking with Putin and flying up and back to Sochi. Russia may not be a superpower but Putin is smart and he is a player and with a million Russian Jews living in Israel he has influence. 

Hezbollah operates as Iran's  proxy in Lebanon and they fired approximately 3,000 rockets at Israel over a 40 day period in 2006.  Both speakers stressed that Iran now possesses GPS guided missiles that are very accurate as the Saudi oil field attack (which they blame on Iran) has demonstrated.  Iran now has the capability to fire an overwhelming 3,000 rockets a day.   From Israel's viewpoint the situation looks grim especially with the Iranian nuclear build up and what they consider a psychopathic leadership intent on destroying the nation.

Of course, from an Iranian perspective the situation looks entirely different as they see Israel as a colonial western outpost (aberration) and because historically Iran experienced a coup  of their democratically elected government when they nationalized their oil resources they no longer trust the West. They do not  want a bar of western Neo-classical economics, Anglo-Zionist capitalism or "democracy" (who can blame them?).  The Persians (Iranians) are an ancient civilization, they are an industrious, clever people, who are hospitable and have for centuries entertained a Jewish religious community.

The question of war

Both speakers gauge that war is inevitable.  For them it is a question of determining the correct moment when a point of "no return" in the development of a nuclear arsenal is achieved by Iran.  However, the build up of conventional Iranian weaponry is also threatening.

Final public question/remark

My last question/remark evoked a response from  Ehud that still remains with me and makes me sad.  What I said to both speakers was that they neglected the "bigger picture" that the world was in transition from a uni-polar to a multi-polar system. Dollar hegemony was coming to an end as was US power and  Neo-classical economics and Anglo-Zionist capitalism was "shaking on its foundations".  Was Israel  facing an existential crisis, and would the US help?   Both speakers looked perturbed, Boaz Ganor denied that the coming crisis was existential but Ehud Yarri said..... In the end no one will help us. We are all alone.

The impending catastrophe is no reason for  schadenfreude or a case of you reap what you sow.  It is an unnecessary tragedy that haunts me and fills me with sadness.  It is the time of Jacobs trouble  caused by his deception and attempt at self-deliverance.  You cannot rule with God until you realize that God rules.  You cannot struggle with man and at the same time wrestle God.  You will be forced to make supplications with strong tears and crying. Until Jacob repents and overcomes his old nature he will have no peace or security.

Your real friends are not the Christian-Zionists who encourage your bad behavior and act as your cheer leaders.  They are false prophets.  Your real friends are those who tell you to your face that you are wrong and need to repent.  Turn back to God and accept his messiah.  The messiah is not God. Neither is he another bar Kochba.  He is Jesus the son of God and he invites you to join him in becoming sons and daughters.  This time he comes not as a "suffering servant" but as King of Kings bearing divine authority. Make sure you are not among his enemies. 

I have informed both speakers and will post any response, clarifications or corrections

Mediterranean Gas Fields Far Larger than Previously Estimated
November 6. The British-Greek gas producing consortium Energean Oil and Gas PLC is a firm that focuses on the Mediterranean; it has been drilling test wells in the Israeli offshore acreages known as the Karish North and Tanin fields and has discovered “significantly” larger than expected natural gas reserves. The find increases the Israeli reserves by 25 BCM (billion cubic meters) of gas plus 34 million barrels of light oil or condensate following exploratory drilling 700 meters north of the original Karish North penetrations that were conducted from mid-March to April at a cost of $25mm. These are imposing results given that the initial discoveries date back only to 1999 with the Noa gas field off the shores of Ashkelon. The explorers then added the more significant findings a decade later with Tamar and Leviathan.  Prior to those dates the country was assumed by most not to have such natural resources. Electricity in Israel was produced with coal-fired furnaces. The discovery converted Israel into an energy supplier both at home and abroad and has become a source of great wealth to the country. Not only does it supply $26 billion worth of natural gas to Jordan and Egypt, it also is in the final planning stages of a 2,000 km natural gas pipeline to supply gas to Europe.  United with Israel

Direct Election of a Prime Minister is Mandated by PM Netanyahu  Jerusalem, Saturday November 9. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave the Interior Minister MK Aryeh Deri the go-ahead to advance a direct election between him and Blue and White leader MK Benny Gantz as reported by Israel’s Channel 12 on Friday. The implication of this, due to the complex nature of Israeli parliamentary politics, is not well understood by this editor at the present time.  Jerusalem Post

Israeli Rabbis Unite to call all Jews to Return: “It’s Time”  In a rare display of unity, a large group of some of the most prominent rabbis of the present generation issued a joint appeal declaring that “there are no longer any valid excuses: Jews must act on the Torah commandment to move to Israel.” Their plea was issued as an initiative based on the Torah portion in which Hashem said to Avram, “Go forth from your native land and from your father’s house to the land that I will show you. Genesis 12:1 A joint declaration in Hebrew went forth saying, in part, “We are sending out a holy proclamation to those who dwell outside of Israel, to wake up and hurry, and to investigate every possible way that is in your ability to come to live in Israel. You must educate your children about the great spiritual level of those who do so and to help them in every way you can to come and dwell in the Holy Land ... The one who chooses Zion and Israel will surely merit to see miracles and wonders, and may our eyes see the return of God to Zion.” Some additional reasons to immigrate to Israel were also stated: “...it is a mitzvah (a divine blessing) to move here ... the redemption is awaiting the return of the last of the exiles ... there is a sharp rise in anti -Semitism which should be recognized as a serious threat to the Jews outside of Israel ... if you can’t perform it, you have to figure out how to enable your children to perform this requirement.” From news reports

Three Hundred Nuclear Warheads? ... and Smaller than New Jersey  One would think that any hostile power would be concerned that Israel could possess up to 300 nuclear warheads –and to have those weapons arranged in a “nuclear triad,” meaning deliverable by three entirely separa te means. But Iran, for one, seems oblivious to that fact in light of its continued bellicosity, threats, and vilification of the Jewish state. Originally Israel would have relied upon air-dropped nuclear bombs and Jericho ballistic missiles. The threat of their use became palpable during the 1973 Yom Kippur war when PM Golda Meir directed eight F-4 Phantom jets to stand by armed with nuclear bombs to drop on Cairo and Damascus should the Arabs make additional gains in the war. Today she worries about Iran and Syria’s acquisition of such weapons and the possibility of a surprise first-strike upon Israeli cities. But today Israel has added a third dimension to its defensive battle doctrines – i.e., nuclear submarines – the deadliest means of nuclear retaliation; they can remain hidden deep under the sea and may be almost undetectable. This capability should give immense pause to any rational enemy (Iran is not one of those!) that a retaliatory strike is inevitable from these stealthy killers no matter how much damage is done to Israel’s physical facilities by a sneak attack. In order to prevent such a sneak attack Israel has continued aggressively to pound the nuclear technology missions in Iraq, Syria and Iran with intensive air raids, sabotage, and assassination campaigns. But the second-strike capability of the lethal and survivable weapons – nuclear submarines – should be what worries their enemies more than anything else. The author of the cited article submits the following vulgar assessment of the awesome possibilities: “Because there’s little chance of finding all of these subs before they fire, they serve as one hell of a disincentive to even think about a first strike.”  The National Interest

New Israeli Shekel “Strongest Currency in the World?”   “The shekel has strengthened against the dollar by 6.6 percent since the beginning of the year ,” as reported by Calcalist, a watchdog financial organization quoted by World Israel News. By contrast the euro and the US dollar are stable in world markets showing a clear breakout of the shekel. The US dollar has just lost over half a cent against the shekel, however, and is now set at 3.499 shekels per dollar value. These changes are directly due to the marked increase in the inherent value of the shekel which is climbing sharply. It is now the strongest currency in the world. Observers say that the shekel is over-performing beyond its actual value because of the “excessive” amount of investment in Israel, activity which always motivates confidence in the currency of such a country. Israel’s chief economist, Mr. Zabezhinsky, says Israeli economic growth has been at about three percent per year, and if it stays in that range it would be hard to see how the shekel could change direction.

An Arab Analyzes Israel’s Scientific Progress With their eyes on the future state of Israel, the Jewish leadership determined early that education and science should be the foundation of any national enterprise and therefore established the Technion Israel Institute of Technology in 1912. Concurrently Israeli universities and research centers have led the world in their respective disciplines. In the military realm, Israel has produced numerous robotic devices and vehicles that enable espionage and attacks on enemies that risk no human lives of its soldiers. Its Iron Dome anti -missile system can even intercept mortar shells. In the field of medicine it has developed surgical robots to perform complex operations without performing a wider laparotomy. The tiny nation has produced many innovations which are utilized by all nations in general. Quoted in Algemeiner, Rami Dabbas, an Arabic civil engineer by profession, wrote: “It’s not that we Arabs have no scientists. In fact, we have millions, but they primarily work for the preservation of racist and tyrannical regimes. Clinging to the provincial theories and ideologies of the past is anathema to progress and advancement. The situation has become so dire that while Israelis are conquering some of mankind’s most urgent medical crises, those who call themselves Arab “scientists” are debating the benefits of camel urine. And then they wonder why we are so underdeveloped.” That mindset is also father to the statistic that Nobel Prize winners of Arab descent are less than ten while Israelis number in the hundreds. Mr. Dabbas decried the backwardness of his Arab colleagues, saying that “almost no public funds were spent on scientific research; instead, they were poured into military and religious institutions to ensure the people remained brainwashed and submissive. This led to the creation of tyrannical dynasties, some of which we se e collapsing today in bloody civil wars. But even in the “best” of cases, like Saudi Arabia, the people remain shackled to backwards populist ideologies and religious doctrines that keep their nation by and large lagging behind the rest of the world.” He concluded: “As a Middle East Arab, I consider Israel the only truly democratic and scientific state in the region, and I want to express my deep admiration for the Jewish state’s incredible achievements.” Israel Today, Nov. 2019

Conclusion

Israel is great!   We should all move there.  They are also very clever. Nothing to do with 2 billion US taxpayers subsidies and stolen technology and trading high tech intellectual property with Russia/China. They have also got lots of nukes. And they will fry everyone (Samson option) so don't even think it!  And they have a strong currency (courtesy of the Rothschild's).  And they now have (disputed/stolen) oil.

And none of the above is propaganda (LOL). Truth be told they are calling the Jews home because of antisemitism and because they need recruits for what is coming.  After all this bravado they are actually pooping their pants.

We wish no ill on the nation.  God wants repentance.  Mend your ways and return to him.  Accept  Yahshuah (Hebrew: יהשוה‎) as your savior and Messiah the one you crucified under the sign KING OF THE JEWS.

Turkey slaughtering civilians

The Turks are slaughtering civilians.  They are also holding US nuclear weapons hostage.  We have evidence from ABC news:

 

Oops we made a mistake.....we retract.....

 

What next?   Are the Turks training squirrels to bomb the Kurds?

 

 

Holding nuclear weapons hostage

Well, that is what the following article says:

Erdogan Holding 50 US Tactical Nukes 'Hostage' As Trump Authorizes Sanctions

https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/erdogan-holding-50-us-tactical-nukes-hostage-trump-authorizes-sanctions

 

Zero Hedge is usually pretty good but we give it a rating of only three out of ten "Turkish Delights"  for this effort as the tactical Nukes are on a US base.  Moreover, they have probably already been removed:

The moral of the story

The moral of the story is that you are being constantly fed lies and propaganda.   The "deep state" is panicking because all their black sites will be removed by the Turks and their strategy is being exposed.   Watch the following video:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Read the following:

President Trump Is Right on Syria
Let’s Hope He Follows Through this Time
Boyd D. Cathey • October 14, 2019
http://www.unz.com/article/president-trump-is-right-on-syria/

 Domestic and Foreign policy are connected

The political establishment in the US (especially the left) does not want Trump to withdraw from Syria.   Trump is walking a fine line that is why he issued the following threat (after giving Turkey the go ahead). Trump To Authorize Sanctions Against Turkish Officials, Reintroduce Steel Tariffs, Halt $100BN Trade Deal:

Trump is getting FISA documents released on October 18. The United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC, also called the FISA Court) is a U.S. federal court established and authorized under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA) to oversee requests for surveillance warrants against foreign spies inside the United States by federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies. Such requests are made most often by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Congress created FISA and its court as a result of the recommendations by the U.S. Senate's Church Committee.

The long and the short of it is that a lot of dirt is going to come out.  The "deep state" is panicking hence the fightback with impeachment. Note that the democrat fightback is led by the Jew Adam Schiff.    Trump represents the Anglo-Zionists.....Jews fighting Jews to rule over us....it would be amusing if it were not so serious.  The only Jew I want ruling me is Jesus Christ.    What will come out is all the weapons running to Syria, the black ops, the Ukrainian coup, the corruption, Hilary and "Uranium one", Bengahzi etc etc etc the spying, the corruption of the FBI and CIA and the complicity of the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE WINNER Obama (who started the Syrian war).    No wonder the democrats are pooping their pants.  I find the X22 report interesting and often pick up pieces of information but remember it is very partisan to Trump.  It is therefore Anglo-Zionist propaganda (be careful):

Russian "deal of the century"?

 

Russian Iranian cooperation

Putin is cooperating with Iran in Syria to preserve the Assad regime. Russia is also taking advantage of Iran's distress and makes hefty profits from Iran's oil. The oil is smuggled from Iran to south Russia, and than it is sold by Russia as Russian oil at market prices. Russia pays for this oil with Russian goods, doubling down on the profit. On the other side Putin is using Israeli air attacks in Syria as a way to keep Iran at bay.

Russian Israeli cooperation

Russia and Israel coordinate the strikes of the Israeli air-force on Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria. There is even a direct line of communication between the Russian Hmeymim airbase in Syria and the Israeli Air Force Command Center in Tel Aviv. The purpose of this line of communication is for the Israelis to update the Russians on their strikes so the Russians will make sure no one of their aircraft be caught in the line of fire and ensure the safety of the Russian pilots. So actually the Russians are giving the Israelis a free pass to attack Iranians and Hezbollah targets in Syria without any interference from their side.

Pro-Iran Gunmen 'Shooting Protesters'

The following article offers commentary on the protests in Iraq. Paid snipers killing both the security forces and the protesters.  The article suggests that Iran is behind the killings, however, we classify it as FAKE NEWS.  The article in question is by Patrick Cockburn (October 7, 2019) and called;  Death Toll in Iraq Soars as Pro-Iran Gunmen 'Shooting Protesters'  http://www.unz.com/pcockburn/death-toll-in-iraq-soars-as-pro-iran-gunmen-shooting-protesters/

Mission Accomplished

Before we look at the article perhaps a bit of "back grounding" and a gentle reminder why we have the mess in the first place.  Just two weeks ago I completed reading the "Green Zone".   You have probably heard of the movie with Jason Bourne and the hunt for the WMD.   The movie is of course fictional but the story-line was conceived from a screenplay written by Brian Helgeland, based on a 2006 non-fiction book Imperial Life in the Emerald City by journalist Rajiv Chandrasekaran. The book documented life within the Green Zone in Baghdad during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Drawing on interviews and first hand experience the book demonstrates the absurdity, incompetence, cronyism and downright criminality involved by the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority. One critic calls it, "a tragic tale of naivety,hubris, waste and wilful ignorance".

Following 9/11, Dick Cheney was instrumental in providing a primary justification for a renewed war against Iraq. Cheney helped shape Bush's approach to the "War on Terror".  Cheney is the poster boy for neoconservative hubris. A member of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) he was also formerly the CEO of Halliburton.

Christian Bale recently portrayed  him in an autobiographical movie.  At the awards he "Thanked SATAN" for giving him inspiration for portraying Cheney.  The criminality, arrogance and stupidity of these people is rightly represented by the likes of Cheney.

 

This is what "freedom" looks like

The neoconservatives still refuse to admit to any mistakes.    In the famous words of Shrub "Mission Accomplished"

 

However, all the "gloating" aside on how easy it was to destroy and kill people with superior technology it will suffice to look at these slides and remind ourselves what a "liberated" Iraq looks like.

Baghdad Before After
https://www.slideshare.net/Peety/baghdad-before-after

This should make the warmongers hang their heads in shame.

 

 

Debunking the Story

After all that has happened we would say that the Iraqi people had the right to protest - especially the disenfranchised youth.  But who is killing both the protesters and the police?  The article (and the MSM) would have us believe that it is IRAN. Here are the facts:

  1. The current unrest in Iraq began a week ago after a prominent general was removed from his post
  2. US gave a travel warning for Iraq one week before the protests
  3. Iraqi Government supportive of Iran
  4. Location of protests near area where Iranians make cross border pilgrimage for up coming holy days

 

Perhaps the best articles for debunking the scenario are:

Who’s been Trying to Destabilize Iraq?
https://journal-neo.org/2019/10/07/who-s-been-trying-to-destabilize-iraq/

 

What does ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei say?

(His twitter page is worth a visit. Here is an article that takes a detailed look at Iran’s military capabilities: https://viableopposition.blogspot.com/2019/06/irans-military-strength-2019-edition.html  )

Precedent for false flags

Lest we forget, we already have a precedent with the Ukrainian (CIA) coup.   The protestors were fired on from nearby roofs by "unknown" snipers.  The Ukraine snipers fired at both police and protesters. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-17/another-false-flag-terror-admission-snipers-ukraine-%E2%80%9Cprotests%E2%80%9D

Same play book?

 

Conclusion

The Unz review is usually pretty good but this story looks like propaganda.  This article seeks to blame Iran and the Iraqi Government.  This is "blow-back" because the US actually allowed Iraqis to vote. The majority Shiite population voted for an Iraqi government sympathetic to Iran.  Oh dear, if only they had left Saddam in power, at least he suppressed the Shiites.  Well I suppose you can't fix neocon stupid. Seems like even Satan has his limitations.  The internet has been taken out in this area, so we have no way to confirm anything but it appears the current government of Iraq is under siege.  With Turkey kicking the USA out of Northern Syria it seems that Iraq has similar ideas (removing the US).  Is the current government opposing US perpetual occupation?  Perhaps that is why we are seeing protests and another regime change is on the cards.

Interview with the Crown Prince

O'Donnell interviewed MBS for 60 minutes (see below for a brief clip):

 

 

 

 

Oil prices would likely soar to "unimaginable" highs that we "haven't seen in our lifetimes" as global supplies are disrupted.

"If the world does not take a strong and firm action to deter Iran, we will see further escalations that will threaten world interests. Oil supplies will be disrupted and oil prices will jump to unimaginably high numbers that we haven't seen in our lifetimes."

Finally, touching on the issue of a ceasefire in Yemen, MbS said Saudi Arabia is working diligently toward peace. He added that he considers the Houthi-backed ceasefire a "positive step."

Not long after, O'Donnell wrapped up the interview with a final question: "What lessons have you learned? And have you made mistakes?

"Of course I've made mistakes," MbS insisted.

"Even prophets make mistakes, so how come we,
as humans, expect not to make mistakes?"

Well I don't know any prophets who saw people into pieces....mind you Manasseh had the prophet Isaiah sawed in half. Perhaps it is a middle east tradition handed down by despots? (p.s. MBS is opening his country up to tourism. Book now and get your visa's to avoid the rush. Public executions are must see. No infidels allowed in Mecca or Medina. And no alcohol. And cover up. Have fun!!)

1001 Arabian Nights

Every night we will tell you a new fairy tale. This time it is not Sinbad or Ali-Baba and the forty thieves (though it might involve Ali-Bibi and the forty thieves).  Suffice to say that this tale is also meant to put you to sleep.

Surveying the  Damage

Every good fairy tale book comes with nice pictures.....here follow the images:

Alternative facts

Now have a look at this website that I discovered. It claims that the Saudis have confirmed that missiles were fired from the Iraq-Kuwait border region and that one of the cruise missile engines found having been manufactured by NATO member Czech Republic military rocket producer.   Look at the images....

It seems like they are not even trying very hard?? 

CNN's exclusive full interview with Iran foreign minister

CNN's Nick Paton Walsh interviews Iranian Foreign Affairs Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in the wake of the Saudi Arabia oil facility attacks that knocked out almost half the country's oil capacity and caused President Trump to order new sanctions on Iran.   This half hour interview is worth watching and is remarkably balanced even though it comes from fake news CNN.   https://edition.cnn.com/videos/world/2019/09/19/iran-foreign-minister-mohammad-zarif-saudi-oil-attacks-full-interview-nick-paton-walsh-intv-vpx.cnn

 

And then there is this-

What follows next is mostly cut and paste from various comments.  Many of these comments are "anonymous" from various websites but they contribute greatly to the intelligence analysis.  Here goes then:

Meet the new hawk, much like the old

O’Brien’s Iran war talk came at a September conference in Israel – including genocide proponent Ayelet Shaked – hosted by the think tank the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism.

O’Brien talked about US “hostages” held in Tehran’s Evin prison.“Could we secure, could we send in a couple of ranger battalions and secure the neighborhood and send in one of our sabre teams and breach the prison and get our folks out? We could do that,” he stated.  O’Brien acknowledged that “there would be a tremendous cost that goes along with it, establishing an air corridor, basically going to war with Iran.”

“So, that would fall under everything we can,
and we’re not doing that at this point,” he added.
“Although that is something we potentially could do.”

So, just days before assuming his new White House post, O’Brien postulated that the US could go to war with Iran to secure the release of a small number of people. Amnesty International has reported that conditions in Evin prison are “inhumane and unsanitary” and that abuses including torture take place. The human rights organization has also recently pointed to the “horrific human rights violations” including torture committed by the United States at its Guantánamo Bay military prison.

Additionally, it has condemned breaches of international law and “callous and dehumanizing” practices at a federal super-maximum security prison in the United States. The use of solitary confinement in prisons across the country is described by Amnesty as a “shocking abuse.”

The US has consistently blocked United Nations human rights investigators from gaining access to its prisons.It is also difficult to imagine what the American response would be to a foreign power even contemplating a military invasion to free prisoners held in dire conditions by the United States.

The plight of Americans held in Iran is nevertheless serious.

But talking about war with Iran is incredibly dangerous. In addition to the potential devastation and loss of life, it would be illegal and would throw the region into deeper turmoil – perhaps surpassing the chaos unleashed in the aftermath of the Bush-Cheney war on Iraq. O’Brien’s statement in Israel goes far beyond a 5 September tweet in which he noted that the US is “closely monitoring the conditions for Americans wrongfully detained by Iran in Evin prison.”  He added that prison officials “are responsible for the detainees’ safety” and that “the world is watching.”

The Outhouse of Sod

https://carnegieendowment.org/2013/06/14/forgotten-uprising-in-eastern-saudi-arabia-pub-52093

 

100 years ago, the Brits hired a warlord then living in Kuwait to conquer the Southern part of the Semite Kingdom (aka: Hashemite Kingdom) and the Northern part of historical Yemen, and what they did then, makes what Israel is doing now to the Palestinians, look like a walk in the park. 100 years ago, there were 5,000 followers of #Wahhabi /ism, and the Brits, through their huge sponsorship of the warlord and his Wahhabi teachings created the serge we know today as "The Outhouse of Sod"

 

Conclusions

Perhaps you are completely confused by now and I don't blame you.  Part of the problem is information overload and they want you to be confused so that you will turn to the mainstream narrative.  A war is being fought for your mind. It is a propaganda war and you need to treat everything skeptically and critically.  To simplify:

 

Option 1 - it was perpetrated by Saudi or Israel, with no obvious consequences.

Option 2 - it was perpetrated by Iran or Yemen, who now possess impressive skills.

And either the Saudi radar operators were asleep, which is very likely, or the equipment is not fit for purpose, which is equally likely.

Remark 1: Saudi is a dead man walking.....the oil regions (Eastern provinces) are chock full of Shiites. Whatever happened it seems that attacks on the ground were part of the scenario (disaffected KSA Shiites). KSA has about 15-20% Shia population and is primarily concentrated in the country's Eastern province, you know where the latest oil facility was blown up.  It also looks like they also want to cover the fact that they are running out of oil and therefore sell of Aramco quickly.

Remark 2: If it was a false flag why did the Houthi's claim the attack? To take the heat of Iran and embarrass KSA? By claiming responsibility they would slow down any plans to ramp this into an Iranian war.

 

As usual nothing is clear.  However.....we do know a few things for certain. 

1. Israel wants war with Iran....therefore

2. The USA wants war with Iran
