The UK column has produced another excellent show (video embedded at the end of this blog). I recommend watching the complete episode. Of particular interest was the section commencing at 12:00 which the program summarizes as follows:
Times of Israel: anti-semitism and Brexit shatter Corbyn’s dreams of revolution Who are the Times of Israel journalists…? Meet Alice Ritchie and Robin Millard Both also write for Lebanese media… Boris’ government to make it illegal for public bodies to engage with BDS movement…? Michael Gove pays special thanks to Britain’s Jews – which Jews is he thanking…? Michael Gove: it’s common sense to be a Zionist Who really runs the UK…?
“This executive order, like the stalled congressional legislation it is based on, appears designed less to combat anti-Semitism than to have a chilling effect on free speech and to crack down on campus critics of Israel.” – @JeremyBenAmihttps://t.co/KfZB6TOAjx
The UK column mentioned Eric Pickles who when I lived in the UK was a Bradford councilor but is now the Rt Hon Lord Pickles. He was previously the Chairman of the Conservative Party from 2009 to 2010 and is currently the chairman of Conservative Friends of Israel. He is the United Kingdom Special Envoy for post-Holocaust issues, being appointed in 2015. Pickles is now President of Holocaust Memorial Day. The tweet that the UK column refers to is below:
At the moment it is not possible to be both. Israel is still estranged from God and unrepentant. Moreover, they are have become the riders of the beast. They control the beast. For the moment you cannot be friends with Israel and a friend of God. ” No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon”(Matt 6:24). The great Harlot serves mammon (money) and the kings of the earth serve the Harlot. They all commit fornication with her. The only conclusion that we can draw is that they are front running the situation – they anticipate dissent and are getting laws in place. This is a bit like throwing the first punch. What that means is that the Anglo-Zionists are about to start a war and Israel is about to give the Palestinians the “deal of the century” (LOL).
John Bolton has found two Iranian tankers in his mustache and has set light to them, declaring; “That’ll learn em!” He said he loves the smell of burning Iranian tankers in the morning.
Well, it looks like John “never-saw-a-war-I-didn’t-like” Bolton was correct after all. The Iranians were lying (The horror) and they offloaded the tanker in Syria.
The Iranian oil tanker Adrian Darya 1 is now located just of off the Syrian port of Tartus after it spent days with its signal transponder shut off in order to evade tracking, Reuters reports, citing new satellite imagery provided by a US space technology company. The Iranians are selling oil to the TERRORISTS:
“Right now it’s parked right outside of Syria,” Sigal P Mandelker, a US Treasury official (and dual-Israeli-citizen-who-is-in-charge-of-sanctions) , was quoted in Al Jazeera as saying. “So it’s yet another game of deception that we see them engaged in that we think the world needs to open its eyes to.”
Deception! Well Jacob, er I mean Sigal…how dare they deceive. We all know who has the title of decepticon (LOL).
The United States forcing closer ties between Iran and China
United States policy towards Iran is forcing China and Russia to share strategic and economic goals.Tehran was never as isolated as Pyongyang, given it has powerful sympathizers like China and Russia willing to play ball as a counterweight to Washington demands and pressure. And Iran is an important hub for the BRI so China and Russia have extra incentive to ensure the current Iranian government survives.
The United States has proposed a meeting between President Donald Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on the fringes of the upcoming U.N. General Assembly in New York, according to a U.S. government source.
Washington's proposal has been conveyed to Tehran through countries such as France, which has been eager to mediate in the ongoing U.S.-Iran standoff over an Iran nuclear deal reached in 2015. Iran had not responded to the proposal as of Wednesday, the source said.
The US does not want to walk back sanctions and Iran does not trust any “deal” that the US proposes. Who can blame them? They have walked out a number of deals recently and the only thing they respect is strength. On Wednesday – the very day the administration is said to have reached out to Tehran offering talks on the sidelines of the UN meeting – the US imposed fresh sanctions on any and all oil shipping networks with ties to Iran’s IRGC or its proxies.
This further included the State Department offering up $15 million for anyone with information on illicit Iranian and Hezbollah oil deals or shipping. The US is now also literally bribing ship captains.
"There will be more sanctions coming," US special envoy for Iran Brian Hook told reporters at the State Department. "We can't make it any more clear that we are committed to this campaign of maximum pressure."
If there’s one thing that should be clear after this chaotic summer of Persian Gulf and Mediterranean ‘tanker wars’ – and repeat US sanctions, threats and military build-up of forces – it’s that Iran is simply not bowing amid the pressure. So the talks are for public consumption – “We want peace…..we are doing everything possible to have talks….the Iranians are refusing the way of peace….” Of, course the Iranians do not even play the game, in fact they have recently released the crew of the Stena.
Iran to free seven crew members of seized British-flagged tanker
British PM cleared his diary amid Brexit chaos to meet Benjamin Netanyahu The guardian says the following;
"That Johnson cleared his diary in the middle of domestic political chaos is a mark of Netanyahu’s influence in Downing Street".
Netanyahu wants the UK to spurn a French plan to offer a $15bn (£12bn) credit line to help Iran sell oil.
In a separate development, US officials said on Thursday that Jason Greenblatt, Trump’s special envoy for the Middle East, planned to resign once the long-delayed US peace plan for Israel and Palestine is released.
When your masters call you drop everything to do their bidding. After all Britain is a friend of Israel but that does not mean that it is a friend of God. Brexit Is All About Making Israel Greater – http://www.unz.com/gatzmon/brexit-is-all-about-making-israel-greater/ And the “peace” deal is not about Making Israel Greater but about Greater Israel the plan to balkanize the Middle East and extend influence in accordance with the Yinon plan and Iran is in the way. It looks like Jason Greenblatt is abandoning ship because he knows that the Kushner “peace plan” will not be accepted by the Palestinians. I expect that he knows that Bibbi will win his reelection (apparently he only lost because Arab-Israeli citizens cheated with their voting[sic]) and that war with Iran will follow and any subsequent “Palestinian peace” will not need his negotiating skills because results will be achieved at the end of a gun barrel.
One hundred and fifteen attacks against British ships
Meanwhile, the UK has been agitating for war in the gulf like a good lapdog . Navy ships have been “attacked” by Iran 115 times in the gulf! It is bad enough that Navy Ships are leaking and that three sailors nearly drowned. Apparently, Navy ships endure “flooding” at least once a week. Perhaps all Iran has to do is wait and the ships will sink by themselves (LOL). All this and more is discussed on the UK column at 37:28 —
37:28 – Iran: IAEA compliance – joint comprehensive plan of action unveiled Strait of Hormuz: HMS Montrose – 115 confrontations so far…? Are these armed boats, overflights with enemy aircraft or a few fishing boats…? Plymouth Live: floods on Royal Navy ships are a weekly problem Royal Navy opportunity: £78K per year on spin and nu-speak Royal Navy: never mind the leaks, join the gay parade
The “bankers” will not be best pleased, Trump and his backers are not pleased. One headline prefaces with “Trump to unleash Hell on Europe” (which is of course exaggerated). Iran now has a means to circumvent sanctions. Is this a case of Mahershalalhashbaz (LOL)…… SWIFT is booty, speedy is prey (Isa 8.3). The EU is still trying to broker peace. What is wrong with them? Did they not get the war memo? Perhaps they don’t want another 2 million Middle East refugees. Spoilsports. It all helps diversity.
Fill your Gas tank
Seems like Saudi Arabia will not be able to continue supply when war starts.
Even with their alternative pipeline there will not be enough to go around.
The American libertarian Tom Luongo a former Research Chemist operates a blog that has an interesting article on the nexus between North Korea and Iran. He demonstrates convincingly that they split up the job of acquiring a nuclear capability with North Korea making the bombs and Iran perfecting the delivery mechanism. That way they can avoid any agreement because they each have deniability –keeping the “letter” of the law while ignoring the Spirit. It seems that North Korea and Iran have been forced down this route because they cannot conduct détente with the likes of Trump’s Neo-conservative appointments – Pompeo and Bolton who have no interest in peace (only regime change and surrender). Links posted below…note that the article contains an internal link to Pompeo and his Evangelical –Zionist leanings and his belief that some sort of confrontation must be provoked in order to catalyze the “rapture”.
Wednesday, May 1, 2019 – the avowed deadline of the US “cutoff” of Iranian oil shipments to the last five un-sanctioned customers of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Those nations affected by the embargo are China and India as well as US treaty allies Japan, South Korea and Turkey according to World Israel News (WIN), April 24th, 2019.
The Trump administration renewed its vow early last week that these countries will no longer be able to purchase Iranian crude oil or other oil stocks while avoiding US sanctions as the US administration turns the screws tighter on the Iranians.The move is designed to place added pressure on Iran to halt its progress toward a nuclear weapon even at the expense of US allies.
It is said that the first portion of the sanctions program by the US has reduced Iranian exports of oil from over 2.5 million barrels per day to about one million barrels per day – a severe drop in revenues for Iran, which is palpably feeling the economically depressing force. The increased pressure would virtually halt all Iran’s income from world trade if it can be enforced.
The move is extremely hurtful to Iran which exports almost nothing other than oil. The interim period of allowing curtailed exports had been allowed so that Iran’s customers could arrange alternative sources for their feed stocks of oil. It is said to be a real hardship for some of these nations because the Iranian crude oil is admittedly the most easily refinable and some of the cheapest crude oil on the market. Of these nations, we have read that, even over its objection to the sanctions, President Recip Tayyip Erdogan’s Turkey has quietly made strides in developing other sources.
But China has just warned the US not to make any “wrong moves” in the affair. Indeed, a Chinese spokesman for the foreign ministry stated last week that “Beijing opposes the Trump administration’s ‘unilateral sanctions and so-called long-arm jurisdiction’ over Iran” according to a report in WIN.
Consequences Stated –Will there be consequences for the world if the US enforces the sanctions?
The Iranians have boldly stated that if the US does not relent it may close the Straits of Hormuz to all shipping.Why is that important? Well, to understand why it is, one needs be familiar with the geography of the Persian Gulf and surrounding lands. Following is a satellite image of the critical waterway. It is just 21 miles (33km) wide at its narrowest point but the designated shipping lane is only two miles wide in either direction. The remaining space is presumably too shallow for safe navigation, thus its name, “The Strait….”
The Persian Gulf is the body of water on the left; the Gulf of Oman (Arabian Sea) is to the right. The Strait is the critical outlet of the Persian Gulf to the open waters of the world’s oceans and is the “bottleneck” through which about 30% of the world’s crude oil is shipped.
A blockage of this critical waterway would wreak havoc on the world oil markets and cause prices to escalate sharply and perhaps out of control. (Sourced from the splinters news letter).
The Coup in Venezuela
The “big picture” is that Pompeo and Bolton are keen to install an American puppet in Venezuela in order to secure alternative oil sources while they bear down on Iran and cause untold misery for other countries –especially China and Russia (who will not play ball on this).
But why is the USA behaving this way?
The NYT posted a cartoon of Trump being led by Bibbi (Benjamin Netanyahu) that has been widely condemned as anti-Semitic. It is a fact that global anti-Semitism is on the rise and that is to be condemned but what are the reasons behind the rise in ill-feeling? Could it be that US Middle East policy is being led by the Neo-Conservatives (predominately Jews) and by Christian-Zionists? They want to Balkanize the Middle East (and have been successful doing so) creating a flood of refugees into Europe (a death blow to Christianity). The last remaining obstacle is Iran (ancient Persia) who refuses to give up their weapons or watch their country destroyed (who can blame them?). Of course we know of Iran’s state sponsored terrorism (Hezbollah etc) and their antagonism towards a Jewish state but they are afraid of Zionist (with US support) expansionism. In the big picture view Zionism and American “exceptionalism” is as dangerous (even more so) than any Russia interference (Gog invasion?).
….the Middle East is a mess because of the Neo-conservatives (a Jewish movement)
God will bless those who bless the Jews and curse those who curse them. If you want to bless the Jews try preaching the Gospel to them without fear or favour…..and remember;
“Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning
the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers” (Rom 11.28).
They must turn return to God and accept his messiah. Jacob cannot do this in his own strength –or he will find himself wrestling God. Any land they conquer and any peace deal they conclude will not endure. The curtain is being drawn to one side and people are beginning to see the machinations of Jacob the deceiver. There will be a back-lash:
“And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast,
these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate
and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire” (Rev 17.16).
Only when Jacob has overcome his old nature will he be renamed as Israel (God is ruler/prince).
