Iran seizes two Tankers

Seizures Unacceptable

Iran crisis: British oil tanker seized in Strait of Hormuz as UK shipping warned to avoid area in Gulf
Mr Hunt said he was attending a Cobra meeting to determine the UK’s response and what could be done to secure their release, adding that the seizures were “unacceptable”.

 

 

Crucially, all of this comes just as UK officials have announced authorities in Gibraltar will detain the tanker ‘Grace 1’ - first seized early this month by UK Royal Marines - for another 30 days.

Father of a lie

Lies and more lies

Below are some links to must read articles that delve deeper into the Iranian tanker incident. Often the truth is only found in the alternative media although sometimes the comments under the articles can be abrasive and often rude or down right racist some of the comments carry useful insights.....here is one such comment:

Summary

  1. A torpedo becomes a mine, and is now possibly a flying object
  2. The USA, who everyone knows is wanting to start a war, releases a blurred and grainy video of a boat (could be any boat) next to a ship (could be any ship). Where is the evidence that this is the ship that was attacked? Where's the smoke or charring?
  3. Several dozen people on board the boat. Are these the sailors being rescued by the Iranians, and if so, isn't removing a mine in front of witness rather stupid?
  4. Why place a mine above the waterline where it can be easily seen, instead of BELOW the waterline?
  5. When & where do you place the mine? When the ship is out at sea (and can be seen) or when it's at port (in UAE and Saudi)? Either way, how can you place a mine and not be seen? Surely carrying a mine around a busy port would invite some questions?
  6. In any crime there has to be Motive, Means and Opportunity. Whilst Iran may technically have the means, being one of the most spied on countries on earth limits opportunity. As to motive, how idiotic would it be to do something like this knowing that the USA, Israel and Saudi are itching for an excuse to start a fight? Rather like Syrians 'gassing' the terrorists right after the Syrian army has made significant gains, and inviting USA freedom missiles to rain down on their heads.
  7. Houthi (supposed) proxies have been quick to claim retaliatory attacks on Saudi pipelines and airports. If this is indeed them, why the silence in this case?

So in summary, this is another idiotic WMD false flag event.

Partisanship?

This blog is not partisan to either Israel, Iran  or the USA.  We stand against hypocrisy and lies.  Iran is a Shia Muslim community and it is under sharia law. It is an imperfect society and has many flaws. It reserves the right to self-defense and should not have war thrust upon it. Iran inherited the legacy of ancient Persia and on the whole treats its Jews and Christian communities with respect.  Israel is a Zionist state that has returned in unbelief, it has demonstrated itself to be belligerent and aggressive and religious Talmudists are intolerant. America is a world Empire controlling the reserve currency Petro dollar ("In God we Trust") it has become morally corrupt, controlled by special interests and promotes the welfare warfare industry of the deep state. Within this paradigm Christian-Zionists form the "mouth piece"  for special interests and shamefully align themselves with the king of this world.

How do these people think?

The above image (large version) shows the weakness in the narrative. Most people will believe what they are told because "the lady on the TV news said it was true".  It is obvious that the general public is treated with contempt and the powers that be don't even try very hard anymore to construct a plausible narrative. It has become blatant and in your face.

Karl Rove (George W. Bush's senior advisor and chief political strategist. On February 8, 2005, Rove was appointed deputy chief of staff in charge of policy) is a good example of how these people think:

 

The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based
community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions
emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." I nodded and
murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism.
He cut me off. "That's not the way the world really works anymore.
" He continued "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create
our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously,
as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you
can study too, and that's how things will sort out.
We're history's actors … and you, all of you, will be
left to just study what we do." [1]

All politicians operate within an Orwellian nimbus
where words don't mean what they normally mean,
but Rovism posits that there is no objective,
verifiable reality at all. Reality is what you say it is, ...[2]

Reality is what you say it is...

No it is not.  You will face the reality of Judgement Day and will realize that truth and justice are absolute and they are What God says it is.  In the meantime this blog will will employ truth and satire to expose the lies. Israel will have no peace until they return to God. They cannot "create their own reality".  All war mongers will be punished whether they be Jew or Gentile as will all who make and worship a lie.

Peace in our Time?

The Pentagon says "the leadership of Iran at the highest level" ordered a spate of disruptive attacks over the past two weeks including attacks on an Aramco Saudi oil pipeline and pumping facilities, the recent sabotage of four tankers near the Strait of Hormuz, as well as a May 19 lone rocket attack on the US embassy in Baghdad's protected Green Zone. [1]

The president himself seemed to all but admit this in passing remarks to reporters as he left the White House for a trip to Japan: “We want to have protection in the Middle East. We’re going to be sending a relatively small number of troops, mostly protective,” Trump said. “Some very talented people are going to the Middle East right now. And we’ll see what happens,” he added.[2]

Iran the warmonger nation

Iran has moved its country too close to US bases

Peace in our Time?

Speaking at his address at the celebration of Israel’s 71st anniversary held at the Israeli embassy in Washington, DC Pompeo states " Peace Plan to be Unveiled This Summer, “No Guarantee of Brighter Future for Palestinian"People” (LOL)

An offer he can't refuse

Make him an offer he can't refuse

 

I encourage blog readers to read the article regarding  “Five prophecies fulfilled in 2018” and “Five prophecies to be fulfilled in 2019”.[3] Of particular interest is numbers (1) and (3) with expected fulfillment this year (1); Increased and Prophesied Torah Awakening Among Non-Jews (3); Focus on and Return to the Third Temple.  Number 1 and 3 belong together – the Torah worshiping non-Jews are the Christian-Zionists.  If the third temple ever gets built or sacrifice recommences expect Christian-Zionists to be the biggest supporters. 

If that happens we have come full circle; The M.E. has been balkanized by the American beast thus (in their eyes) fulfilling the promise to Abraham for the Jews to hold sway from the river of Egypt to the Euphrates – under control of Jerusalem ( the harlot city) as per the Yinnon plan. Soon the image of the beast (temple) will be -built and the Christian-Zionist will be the spokesman, mouth piece, propagandist or false prophet (if you want to use the apocalyptic term).  False Christians and false Jews joining together to defy God and “make a name” for themselves; I wonder how that will end?

 

“And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone
for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be
cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered
together against it” (Zech 12.3).

Time for a laugh

I thought I would end  this post on a laugh. The next link will take you to a classic piece of Saudi Propaganda made with CGI (as it is probably the only way they will win a war).  The movie has been produced in English probably to allow other countries to marvel at Saudi prowess (at least in the digital sphere).  It starts with a Saudi ship delivering "Humanitarian Aid" (LOL) being attacked by Iranian patrol boats. Then all hell breaks loose and the Saudi's end up winning the "war" with the Iranian people cheering their "liberation".    I must say the Saudi's are good at irony and comedy (or do they really believe this?).

Trump saves the world

Apparently war has been averted.  The Pentagon announced  on Tuesday that US defense posturing and military build-up in the Persian Gulf has thwarted potential attacks on Americans. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said Iran was forced to “put on hold” plans to harm American troops and their allies in the region:

“I think our steps were very prudent and we’ve put
on hold the potential for attacks on Americans and
that is what is extremely important,” Shanahan told
reporters at the Pentagon, though without giving specifics.   
He added that Iran was ultimately forced to "recalculate"
its aggression". [1]

This adds to a number of other recent impressive US victories such as Syria and Venezuela (one wonders why these countries resist democracy,  liberty  and freedom when they could have the opportunity to become free like Iraq and Libya).

 It looks like every single western country on Pompeo's warmongering tour  saw through the fake sabotage of tankers for the false flag lame effort that it was, forcing the US and (((allies)))  to reconsider their plans to start a war against Iran or at least change their methodology.

The USA et al did everything to try and provoke Iran.

Abusive and threatening posturing, placing an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers in their backyard....constantly accusing them ("credible intelligence") of preparing to attack. Iran responded by, doing........... Nothing.  Well I guess all we can do is declare victory over their aggression.

The internet is a nuisance because even when you control the main stream media and arrest journalists like Assange the truth still leaks out.  Expect a further global clamp down on internet freedoms. I hope someone suggests the Donald for a Nobel peace prize but it is probably best to wait until after the "Deal of the Century".

In any case, the warmongers have been humiliated but not deterred. This merely postpones the inevitable - new methods must be sought.

War and Rumors of war

Why Iran and North Korea are best buddies

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”.

Oil Sanctions

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?

Anti-semitic NYT cartoon?

NYT Cartoon Bibbi and Trump

 

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?).

Blessing the Jews

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).
