Sitting inside the Matrix and drawing the threads together from the various stories and tweets to give us an overview.
The easiest way to do this is to first catalogue the narrative that they want us to believe and then push-back. What is my motivation? After 9/11 I do not believe anything they tell me. In their philosophy the end justifies the means. They lock people up (Assange) and murder people (Epstein). Then they call you a conspiracy theorists for doubting them. They may even call you unpatriotic or a terror supporter. They are very good at projecting. So, this is not about being “contrary” it is not about being anti-Anglo-Zionist or pro-Iranian. At this point in time if they told me it was dark outside I would go outside and physically check. My attitude is now beyond skeptical. They no longer get the benefit of the doubt.
3. The Iranians are incompetent and missed killing anyone on US bases with their rockets
4. They are so stupid that all their rockets did was kill their own citizens in a Ukrainian aircraft
5. Iranians are rioting because they hate their lying incompetent government
Debunking the Narrative
The first three points of this narrative are easily debunked in the following video:
The last three points are more difficult to debunk but a certain amount of clarity is starting to emerge. I have said all along that I do not believe in coincidences. The fact that the Ukraine is involved and that a similar (antiquated) missile system was used, set alarm bells ringing. Then I came across this perceptive comment reproduced in full (from the comments section on the MOA also linked above):
I guess I get to re-post what I wrote here three days ago, as it may be closest to the truth.
WHO PRESSED THE BUTTON?
Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it’s enemy action.
– Auric Goldfinger
I find the evidence on social media quite convincing. It seems that two Tor M1 missiles were fired at the Ukrainian plane.
People have asked why the cameraman was filming the empty sky at 6 AM? Maybe he saw the first missile hit and started filming the second missile 30 seconds later. The cameraman may be a night guard. There is some kind of guard house at the street corner from where the video is filmed. It is also seen on the video.
The question to ask is “who pressed the button?” Unless it was pure incompetence there are two other options.
US electronic warfare created fake radar targets for Iranians to shoot at.
Americans had hacked into the Tor system. Maybe they took over the control link between the Tor TLAR and the command unit and were able to issue false fire commands. Or maybe they inserted some Stuxnet type malware into the system. If so, this implant may have been waiting for years to be activated.
Americans have lately been bragging about the malware that they have implanted in Russian strategic systems and the cyber attacks they are planning against Russia. There is every reason to believe they are engaged in a similar war against Iran.
Does Ukraine have Tor M1 systems? I am sure they gave all the necessary information to Americans.
Why did Iran back down?
Iran does not want war with the USA. When it retaliated against the USA it forewarned Iraq so that no human casualties ensued. Iran only targeted infrastructure (US bases). When they shot down a US drone they limited their action to military infra structure (also no casualties). They are fully aware that the USA (or Israel) is capable of initiating a full scale nuclear assault against them. They do not want war but they had to respond otherwise their government would have looked weak and collapsed. So, they fired missiles at empty bases. Then they went into high alert expecting a retaliation.
What happened next?
If the above speculation is true (manipulating the Tor missile system) then why would Iran accept responsibility? Well, at first they demanded an investigation and attempted to be transparent hoping that the truth would be revealed. Then Iran backed-down and took full responsibility. Why? Probably because they faced an overwhelming nuclear threat. I believe the threat was so pressing that they were forced to tow the line. The fact is that Iran did shoot the aircraft down…..but I believe they had outside help (the US/Israel interfered with their systems). If the true extent of Anglo-Zionist perfidy and lying is revealed then the Empire would collapse. The charade only works as long as Joe public believes the narrative. Joe public still believes 9/11 and the Epstein suicide. They think they can get away with anything now. They have perfected the art. What you must remember is that war is not just fought on the battlefield but also for your heart and mind. They need you to believe that they are the good guys fighting evil. What do you expect? You think that they will admit that they are a bunch of blood thirsty, power hungry, greedy megalomaniacs who want to control the world? Not likely. Where does this leave Iran? They are not a perfect country either but they are seeking to protect themselves. That is their right.
While millions of Iranians turned out for the funeral of Solemani, Iran’s call to de-escalate comes as waves of anti-government protesters have taken to the streets to demand that Iran’s leaders, including Ayatollah Khamenei, stepdown over their initially concealing the truth about the airline downing. (At least that is what this article is saying.).
How can you believe any of this when the protests start at “Universities” (don’t they always?) and the British Ambassador is taking pictures (for his scrapbook?). Looks like another “color-revolution”. I do not believe for one moment that this is spontaneous. See below for tweets:
To the leaders of Iran – DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS. Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching. Turn your internet back on and let reporters roam free! Stop the killing of your great Iranian people!
Once again I place some comments (unedited) from the Hedge. These are really good and could be articles in their own right.
Blowback From The Soleimani Assassination Increases As Iraq Reveals How Trump Tried To Steal Its Oil
The blowback from Trump’s assassination of Major General Qassem Soleimani and PMU leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis is increasing. A scandal is developing as one consequence of Trump’s evil deed after Iraq’s Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi revealed the gangster methods U.S. President Trump used in his attempts to steal Iraq’s oil. Below we follow today’s development.
The mourning for the assassinated Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani unfortunately caused even more suffering:
A stampede broke out Tuesday at a funeral for a top Iranian general killed in a U.S. airstrike, and at least 56 people were killed and more than 200 were injured as thousands thronged the procession, Iranian news reports said.
The stampede took place in Kerman, the hometown of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani, as the procession began, said the semi-official Fars and ISNA news agencies, citing Pirhossein Koulivand, head of Iran’s emergency medical services.
Helicopter video had earlier shown that the street of Kerman were densely crowded with mourners. The actual funeral has now been postponed.
General Soleimani remains the most popular Iranian public figure among those tested, with eight in ten viewing him favorably. Second is Foreign Minister Zarif, viewed favorably by two thirds. …
Also this from Professor Abukhalil:
This is the most stunning aspect of the rise of Iranian nationalism due to Trump’s decision to kill Suleimani. This would have been most unimaginable for many decades. The law of unintended consequences. https://t.co/nuxrZ1WzMi
In addition to his well known military/strategic prowess & achievements, it was also scenes such as this from 2017 – when Soleimani consoled the daughter of a slain comrade at his funeral – that made him so widely respected and revered in Iran. pic.twitter.com/Pnkk8iHiUB
This video from 2017 shows Soleimani consoling the daughter of a slain comrade at his funeral. Such scenes explain why Soleimani was so beloved.
The U.S. has denied Iran’s Foreign Minister Jahvad Zarif a visa for a long planned visit to the UN in New York. Zarif responded by saying that he can talk to the U.S. people from Tehran. Today he proved that by giving a CNNinterview:
Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif called US President Donald Trump’s decision to order the drone strike that killed the country’s top military commander an act of “state terrorism” in an interview with CNN Tuesday. … “This is an act of aggression against Iran and amounts to an armed attack against Iran, and we will respond. But we will respond proportionally not disproportionally,” he said. “We will respond lawfully, we are not lawless people like President Trump.” … The interview came as Iran’s parliament voted unanimously for a motion declaring all US forces as “terrorists” on Tuesday, according to Iran’s state-news agency IRNA. The vote took place during the country’s parliamentary session Tuesday, IRNA reported. After the plan was approved, delegates chanted, “Death to America.”
According to a report on Tuesday by the semi-official Tasnim news agency, Iran has worked up 13 sets of plans for revenge for Soleimani’s killing. The report quoted Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, as saying that even the weakest among them would be a “historic nightmare” for the U.S. He declined to elaborate,
“If the U.S. troops do not leave our region voluntarily and upright, we will do something to carry their bodies horizontally out,” Shamkhani said.
The Quds force, the external action arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp, received an additional budget of 200 million Euros. It will put that money to good use.
There are some 60 to 70.000 U.S. soldiers designated foreign terrorists on some 19 bases near Iran and on ships in nearby waters. That are a quite a number of fish in just a few barrels.
Their commander in chief should ask himself if it is wise to keep them there.
The leader of a number of Iraqi Popular Militia Forces will meet in the next 48 hours to plan for the eviction of U.S. forces from Iraq should they not leave voluntarily. For security reasons the meeting was moved from Baghdad to Tehran.
“Soleimani’s blood .. will turn into intercontinental missiles .. to destroy US warships and end US regional presence”
U.S. war ships will certainly have to avoid Yemen’s coast.
The removal of U.S. troops from the region was also the theme of Sunday’s speech by Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah in Lebanon. It seems clear that the Resistance Axis will work on the project in a coordinated manner.
Trump said he would ask Iraq to pay for the bases the U.S. has built should the U.S. troops be kicked out of Iraq. The U.S. already has binding legal agreements with Iraq which stipulate that the bases, and all fixed installations the U.S. has built there, are the property of Iraq.
Trump had already asked Iraqi Prime Ministers -twice- if the U.S. could get Iraq’s oil as reward for invading and destroying their country. The requests were rejected. Now we learn that Trump also uses gangster methods (ar) to get the oil of Iraq. The talk by the Iraqi Prime Minister Abdul Mahdi happened during the recent parliament session in Iraq (machine translation):
Al-Halbousi, Speaker of the Iraqi Council of Representatives, blocked the speech of Mr. Abdul Mahdi in the scheduled session to discuss the decision to remove American forces from Iraq.
At the beginning of the session, Al-Halbousi left the presidential seat and sat next to Mr. Abdul-Mahdi, after his request to cut off the live broadcast of the session, a public conversation took place between the two parties. The voice of Adel Abdul Mahdi was raised.
Mr. Abdul Mahdi spoke with an angry tone, saying:
“The Americans are the ones who destroyed the country and wreaked havoc on it. They are those who refuse to complete building the electrical system and infrastructure projects. They have bargained for the reconstruction of Iraq in exchange for giving up 50% of Iraqi oil imports, so I refused and decided to go to China and concluded an important and strategic agreement with it, and today Trump is trying to cancel this important agreement.”
The American President’s threatened the Iraqi Prime Minister to liquidate him directly with the Minister of Defense. The Marines are the third party that sniped the demonstrators and the security men:
Abdul Mahdi continued:
“After my return from China, Trump called me and asked me to cancel the agreement, so I also refused, and he threatened me with massive demonstrations that would topple me. Indeed, the demonstrations started and then Trump called, threatening to escalate in the event of non-cooperation and responding to his wishes, so that the third party (Marines snipers) would target the demonstrators and security forces and kill them from the highest structures and the US embassy in an attempt to pressure me and submit to his wishes and cancel the China agreement, so I did not respond and submitted my resignation and the Americans still insist to this day on canceling the China agreement and when the defense minister said that who kills the demonstrators is a third party, Trump called me immediately and physically threatened me and defense minister in the event of talk about the third party.”
The reliable Based Cat in Iraq seems to confirm the timeline:
Yes a 50-person delegation visited China in 2019 and then the protests started on October 1st until the Arbaeen dates, then picked up again on Oct 25th. I’m skeptical about the 3rd party but the timing itself was interesting. The flames were fanned by Gulf media and Al-Hurra. https://t.co/1dSiuH8ez5
While this talk has not yet been confirmed it does sounds highly plausible.
The chicken-hawks of Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, who have all lobbied the U.S. for war on Iran, now fearthe consequences:
Gulf Arab states, potential targets for retaliation after the U.S. assassinated Iran’s top general, are working on multiple tracks to try to keep tensions between Tehran and Washington from building into a military confrontation.
Earlier today Russia’s President Vladimir Putin arrived in Damascus for talks with the Syria’s President Assad. Could there also be a meeting between Putin and Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah? Putin will next go to Turkey to inaugurate the gas pipeline between Russia and Turkey.
Tell Me Who Your Friends Are…
And if Mike Pompeo, allegedly a top US “diplomat”, is in your administration–that pretty much sums up who you are. Make no mistake, currently, the United States has zero diplomats of scale and skill required to handle a clusterfuck which US foreign policy is, but Mike Pompeo is something special–a devout Ruprutist, an Israeli-firster and, in general, is an Exhibit A of a collection of different delusions and disorders preventing such ilk from having any relation with the reality. He is also a BSer of a note when trying to state that:
Evidently this is not quite “true”. I, of course, am not talking about the “the buck stops with me” guy in the White House who simultaneously declared war on Iran (and now on Iraq); in the end he is ultimately responsible for being unfit to run this country (but who is?) and making disastrous decisions. If to believe WaPo (I know, I know) it was US Secretary of the State who for months was pushing for assassination of Soleimani (the article at WaPo is behind the paywall), including feverish, several times a day, sessions with DJT precisely on this issue. Well, he, certainly, succeeded. Now he, together with Trump, are both personally responsible for what follows because Iran will respond. Some moves are already in progress, with Chief of the Iranian General Staff already having consultations with Shoigu (in Russian). Obviously, officially those consultations are defined as aimed “to not allow further escalation”, which in military lingo means a review of options. Meanwhile, Pompeo makes rounds trying to convince everyone that assassination of a very senior government official of the sovereign nation was “necessary“. As I say, yet again, he lied, some Americans already died.
Evidently Pentagon knew what kind of **** Trump was getting United States into and what that meant for US bases in the Middle East. Larry C Johnson was straight to the point:
Too bad (for Pentagon) that Trump went for the most insane option. But, I guess, against the background of a precipitous intellectual decline of US political elites and dual loyalties (primarily to Israel and Saudi money) being a normal fact of US body politic expecting sound geopolitical decisions based on expertise is not a possibility anymore. And so, here we are. I may gather enough will and strength to review some military options but, frankly, it is a fool’s errand since pretty much everyone is going to be writing about it. One such piece, well intended, but wrongly justified has already been written by former Marine helicopter pilot in which this was stated:
An admiral in the UK states that an invasion of Iran would require millions of American troops, akin to the occupation of Germany after World War II. But he’s off the mark: things have come a long way since 1945. In World War II, when we wanted to cripple a German ball bearing plant at Schweinfurt, we had to send 291 B-17 bombers, 77 of which never came home. This scale was due to the inaccuracy of the dumb bombs being used. Today, we have GPS and laser-guided bombs that can reliably land within a few meters of their targets. The accuracy of every weapon system, from tanks to planes to artillery, has jumped by many orders of magnitude, thus requiring fewer personnel and delivery systems to achieve the same destructive results. Iraq was defeated with about 225,000 coalition troops in 2003. Millions of soldiers would not be required to invade Iran.
You know by now my attitude to all those historical parallels, especially when drawn inaccurately. The author, obviously, forgot that Iran, unlike Iraq in 2003, does have modern EW systems, including ones capable of jamming GPS signal and Iran’s army herself has enough of those very same laser-guided munitions which, considering Iran’s nightmarish terrain, will make any armor warfare a living hell for any invader. Same goes for infantry. So, I wouldn’t dismiss assessments by Royal Navy’s Admiral when he states that the United States will need a number of troops around million or so if the United States wants to “occupy” Iran. And here is a conundrum for the US–once the real escalation starts, the US will NEED to win the war for which it doesn’t have resources. Both Trump and Pompeo bear direct responsibility for putting the United States into this strategic trap which, as Phil Giraldi termed it is:
Difficult to disagree. In the end, Trump chose his cabinet and as the saying goes, tell me who your friends are….
Oh Dear…..better shut down the internet. You see it works both ways. It can spread lies but it can also spread the truth. This is the age of the citizen-journalist. So all your presstitutes and paid shills are done for. You can lock Assange up but are you going to lock us all up? (probably). We do not need a degree in journalism or history to discover the truth. People are waking up to your warmongering. You might be able to fool all the people some of the time but not all the people all of the time. Your time has come:
Well George…..you deserve this for your bad delivery (not because you killed thousands, ruined countries and let them get away with 9/11).
I have placed this at the top of the articles. If it is true it is absolutely disgusting. You will have to make up your own mind but it has the ring of truth. I thought it was suspicious that General Qassem Soleimani flew into Baghdad airport. Apparently he was there by invitation and expected to return to Iran with a message – instead he returned in a coffin. If the invitation was at the behest of Saudi Arabia (as the article suggests) they already have form with initiating cowardly attacks (JamalKhashoggi ).
By all counts it is acknowledged that Iranian “sleeper cells” are in the West. How long before they unleash mayhem everywhere? Iran will activate them soon. Come to think of it this is probably exactly what the Anglo-Zionists want. It will justify the Anglo-Zionists lashing out even harder at Iran and it will also allow them to introduce more measures to “protect us” (patriot act version 2.0 ??) . I bet they already have the legislation ready. People will be that scared and are that stupid that they will gladly accept it. GENIUS. Turn the West into a surveillance prison and a speech and whist-blower free zone. Criticize the government and go to the gulag.
Question: Why is Iran expanding in the region? Could it perhaps have something to do with the fact that in the the 50’s the legitimate Iranian gov was deposed by the Anglo-Zionisits and replaced by the Shah? Is that because the Iranians wanted to nationalize their oil industry? Are they “pushing back” now because they don’t like America “taking the oil” like they have admitted doing in Syria. Didn’t the US support Saddam in an eight year war against Iran and then the Anglo-Zionists turned against Saddam? Please tell me who is expanding in the Middle East? Could it be that the USA and Israel (& Saudi Arabia) are expanding and Iran is countering their aggression? Is it wrong for Iran to dislike Imperialism and Zionism? Why does the USA support the murdering regime of Saudi Arabia? And please tell me how this all began with the biggest lie of all (9/11). No wonder Iran wants a nuclear weapon. By the way, how did giving up nuclear ambitions work out for Gaddafi…..does anyone know? And can anyone tell me if they have found WMD in Iraq?
Well, at least the world is a safer place, right? I mean, this will finally put an end to Iran’s nuclear ambition. First you walk out of the nuclear agreement then you kill some of the top people. It is called the ART OF THE DEAL. Of course this will lead to peace…..what are you….stoopid?
BREAKING: Iranian state TV reports Iran will no longer abide by any limits of its 2015 nuclear deal. https://t.co/4lsVoTrMAY – @AP
Craig Murray says,”The ruling Establishment has learnt a profound lesson from the debacle over Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction. The lesson they have learnt is not that it is wrong to attack and destroy an entire country on the basis of lies. They have not learnt that lesson despite the fact the western powers are now busily attacking the Iraqi Shia majority government they themselves installed, for the crime of being a Shia majority government…..No, the lesson they have learnt is never to admit they lied, never to admit they were wrong”.
They lied about 9/11
They lied about WMD
They lied about Syrian chemical weapons
They lied about ISIS
They lied about the Epstein “suicide”
They lied about the White Helmets
They lied about the LeMessurier “suicide”
They lied about the Skripal poisoning
They lied about Julian Assange
They are now lying about Iran
Instead of reading his own book, The Art of the Deal, I highly recommend that Trump reads the following:
1. Do Not Criticize, Condemn or Complain
2. Be Generous With Praise
3. Remember Their Name
4. Be Genuinely Interested In Other People
5. Know The Value Of Charm
6. Be Quick To Acknowledge Your Own Mistakes
7. Don’t Attempt To “Win” An Argument
8. Begin On Common Ground
9. Have Others Believe Your Conclusion Is Their Own
10. Make People Feel Important
The Taboo Against Truth, Holocausts and the Historians by Ralph Raico . Summary of Unz review article: It was the Communists who introduced into modern Europe the awful fact and terrifying threat of the killing of civilians on a vast scale, implying the extermination of whole categories of persons.The facts regarding the Ukrainian terror famine of the early 1930s and the Stalinist gulag were also known in broad outline in European right-wing circles. In their minds, as in those of right-wingers generally, the Bolshevik acts were transformed, irrationally, into Jewish acts, a transformation helped along by the existence of a high proportion of Jews among the early Bolshevik leaders. He [the historian Ernst Nolte] was accused of “historicizing” and “relativizing” the Holocaust and chided for questioning its “uniqueness.” In 1920, after a visit to Russia, Bertrand Russell wrote to Lady Ottoline Morell: Bolshevism is a closed tyrannical bureaucracy, with a spy system more elaborate and terrible than the Tsar’s, and an aristocracy as insolent and unfeeling, composed of Americanised Jews. Bertrand Russell, The Autobiography of Bertrand Russell, II, 1914–1944 (Boston: Uttle, Brown, 1968), p. 172. The killing of the European Jews was an outgrowth of the fierce hatred of “Judeobolshevism” that allegedly permeated all of German and European “bourgeois” society after 1917.
It is quite clear that the Zionists have hi-jacked the UK election – even the chief rabbi has let loose on Corbyn and his so called “anti-antisemitism”. The “five eyes” are also lined up against Corbyn. What is Corbyn’s main crime? He wants to regulate the banks. He wants Glass-Stegall. He wants a national investment bank/strategy. He was to keep the NHS as a public good and re-nationalize some of the utilities and railroads. In other words he is Old Labour.
Leave the EU but still part of EU defense
The “ships of Tarshish” will not be independent. Even if the UK leaves it will still be part of EU defense and procurement. It is all a sham. Recommend to watch the full episode of the UK column:
Is this what God wants? Really? Christian-Zionists are nothing but false prophets justifying bad behavior. At the last count 32 Palestinians were killed (mainly women and children) in the recent trouble and homes turned to rubble and no Israeli deaths. That is because the Palestinian rockets are not guided – they fire them indiscriminately. However, the media no longer reports Palestinian deaths. They do not count. All they have are stones and kites. Judgement Day is coming. Tick Tock.
The truth is that one way or another we will never know exactly what (or who) lies behind this. It is perhaps coincidence that John Bolton was recently sacked, coincidence that Aramco requires higher oil prices for the upcoming IPO, coincidence that Bibi is struggling in his upcoming election, coincidence that the US and Israel are signing a mutual defense pact and coincidence that a nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the world’s #1 defense & national security think tank posted a tweet four days ago that warned about this very instillation being attacked. Could this be how the NeoCons save a flailing Netanyahu and establish a next election win for Trump?
However, Pompeo says that Iran is behind it and as Trump has sacked the warmonger Bolton they must be speaking the truth. They obviously do not want war. And Pompeo who lies and cheats and steals (his words not mine) is now telling the truth:
Are ye not entertained?
Frankly, at this point it doesn’t really matter “who did it”. Both Israel and the USA have demonstrated that they are determined for war. And Saudi Arabia has been decimating Yemen and perpetrating war crimes. So, if the Houthis have manged to strike at the Saudi’s (who don’t get their hands dirty but use mercenaries) good on them. Hit them where it hurts (in the pocket)….perhaps it will make the Saudi royals rethink when they have less to spend on Call Girls, drugs and yachts while exporting extreme Wahhabism all over the world. As one comment said;
Greatest strength, greatest weakness. All the Saudi Royalty had to do with its vast wealth is figure out a way to spread it around. Instead, in their malice and delusion, they wanted to become an imperial power. With less success than Italy. It could have become the Denmark of its neighborhood. Competent, modern, instead it painted bull's eyes on its back by exporting religious bigotry. Saudi Arabia, the last home of Idi Amin.
Moon of Alabama states that the Houthis claimed internal support from “the cooperation of honorable and free men within the Kingdom.” If true this would make the Saudi’s even more paranoid than usual. There is no love lost between MBS and some of the other royals that he ousted with a coup. On some of the drone attack videos gunfire can be heard….perhaps dissidents staged ground support? Also Moon of Alabama suggests that Iraq may have been a drone launch site (remember Israeli fighter jets recently attacked Iraq and the country has a Shiite majority).
Fox news just said 80% of Saudi production has shut down and Dept. of energy head Rick Perry says he will open up the Strategic oil reserve. Whoopee! Higher prices for all oil producers – at least the U.S. shale industry will benefit as will the float of Aramco. As long as the attacks are “manageable” it is win, win. What is not to like? Perhaps I am being too cynical.
The emerging Beast
What we are witnessing is the emergence of the Beast power in the Gulf region. It is an allegiance between the various Arab states with Israel in charge (the Harlot).
" And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast " (Rev 17:12-13).
The territory of the ten kings is that spoken of in Genesis 15:
Why Israel is quietly cosying up to Gulf monarchies
"Evidence is mounting of increasingly close ties between Israel and five of the six members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) – none of which have formal relations with the Jewish state".
“Cooperation in different ways and at different levels isn’t necessarily visible above the surface, but what is below the surface is far greater than at any other period.”
"But in spite of these recent flashes of publicity, hard evidence of Israeli ties with the Gulf states is still rare – because they remain largely covert".
"The Israelis quietly participated in joint military exercises with UAE forces, both in the US and in Greece, from 2016. Last year UAE military personnel reportedly visited an Israeli airbase to review the operations of US-made F-35 fighter jets, though this was denied by Israel. Clandestine cooperation is believed to include Israeli intelligence surveillance of Iran, and the sale of Israeli drones used in the war in Yemen".
"In addition to shared contempt for Iran, the Gulf states and Israel have been brought together by a common hostility to Islamist parties".
"The attitudes of Gulf governments have clearly changed. But the bottom line is that Israel has failed to provide the incentives required for the Saudis and their allies to come out of the closet, to allow them to reconcile geopolitical logic with popular sentiment, because it has not offered anything approaching an acceptable deal for the Palestinians. “Everyone knows about the rapprochement with Israel, but no one can talk about it publicly, and no one can advocate it because there is nothing for the Palestinians in return,” concludes an Arab analyst in Abu Dhabi. “The assumption is that if it was going to happen openly, it would have to be in return for something big, and it does not look as though that is going to happen."
By “his wife” the article means that the Jewish billionaire and extreme Zionist Sheldon Adelson who supports both Netanyahu’s and Trump, recently turned against Bibi;
"To add reputational insult to injury, Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, Bibi’s stalwart U.S. financial supporters, are reported by the Israeli press to have told authorities investigating Netanyahu’s alleged corruption that the prime minister’s wife, Sarah, is “crazy” and “decides everything.” That will not help the PM at the polls."
As one commentator remarks;
They are trying to keep people from connecting the dots. Trying to reverse perception after their exposure at apex. Its the same BS with the phony fight between Mossad Jewish Mafia-Zuckerberg and Bibi. Saw more of that today with other stuff too. Reminiscent of the old Soros is after Israel bit. Its amazing how well these simple productions can work. Too late for that now though. Next it will be Bezos vs. The Intel community...lol
Looks like they are getting ready to introduce us either to “Dear Leader” or perhaps the “antichrist” or maybe they are one and the same thing? After-all, they all seem to want total control, religious or otherwise:
Use algo’s to mind read
Use algo’s to data-mine
Use algo’s to psychologically profile and manipulate
