Clinton Injured, US Navy Seal Killed In Secret US Mission To Iran

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers




A new Foreign Military Intelligence (GRU) report circulating in the Kremlin today is saying that United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton [photo 2nd left] was injured, and a top US Navy Seal Commander killed when their C-12 Huron military passenger and transport aircraft crash landed nearly 3 weeks ago in the Iranian city of Ahvaznear the Iraqi border.

Iranian intelligence agents quoted in this GRU report confirm that the C-12 Huron aircraft is still in their possession in Ahvaz, but will only admit that the plane was “forced to land because of technical problems.”

The US Navy Seal member reported killed in this bizarre incident, this report says, was indentified as Commander Job W. Price [photo 3rd left] who as a leader of this highly specialized American Special Forces unit protects high-ranking diplomats traveling in Middle Eastern and Asian combat zones.

Curiously, US media reports on Commander Price’s death say it being investigated as a possible suicide as he died from what the American Defense Department describes as “a non-combat related injury.”

Equally as curious, US media reports state that Secretary Clinton will return to work next week after her having suffered what they describe as a “nasty bout with stomach flu” and a “concussion” which have kept her missing from public view the past three weeks.
This GRU report, however, states that US military flight logs recorded by Russian air and space forces confirm that Commander Price, and other members of US Navy Seal Team 4, left their base in Urozgan Province, Afghanistan on a flight to US Naval Support Activity Bahrain where they met up with Secretary Clinton and all of them transferred to the C-12 Huron that began a flight path to Baghdad, Iraq.

Within minutes of leaving Bahrain airspace, this report says, the C-12 Huron carrying Secretary Clinton and her US Navy Seal protectors, “without notice,” deviated from their assigned flight path heading, instead, directly towards Iran’s Ahwaz International Airport where, coincidentally, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had previously landed on an “unscheduled” visit.

Important to note, GRU analysts say in this report, was that when the C-12 Huron entered into Iranian airspace neither American nor Iran air force units responded clearly indicating that this secret mission was sanctioned.

Upon the C-12 Huron landing at Ahwaz, however, this report says it encountered “extreme turbulence” causing it to leave the runway where its main landing gear then collapsed causing it to crash.

Within seconds of the C-12 Huron crashing, this report continues, Iranian emergency and security personal responded freeing the victims, including Secretary Clinton who was reportedly unconscious and “bleeding profusely.”

After emergency aid was given, GRU agents stationed in Iran state that another US military flight was dispatched from Bahrain to Ahwaz which evacuated all of those wounded and killed in the crash including Secretary Clinton.

Strangely to note, this report says, is that in the aftermath of this crash, Iran’s main oil company announced today that they were buying the Ahwaz airport with the intention of moving it because, they say, oil was discovered beneath it.

To what the Americans mission to Iran was about this report doesn’t speculate upon, other than to note that with the Gulf State Monarchies rapidly approaching a union of their oil rich nations to counter Iranian power, and with President Obama signing a new law this past week to strengthen American borders against threats from Iran, and with the highly-publicized “Velayat 91” Iranian military exercises now taking place across a wide area from the Strait of Hormuz, a new and catastrophic war in this region is much closer to being a reality than many realize.

To if Secretary Clinton’s mission was meant to forestall such a war it is not in our knowing, other than to note, that with the United States continued backing of some of the cruelest dictatorships in the world, our entire planet is but one spark away from a fire that could very well consume us all.

Good and bad terrorists in Syria


Terrorism is terrorism and it cannot be defined otherwise unless the interests of one party tilt the scale in disfavor of another and the dichotomization of the terrorists in Syria into good and bad by the West casts doubt on its claim on democracy.

In a somber political tone, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov lashed out as “absolutely unacceptable” the West’s support for the terrorists in Syria in his exclusive interview with Russia Today.

Lavrov said the West has divided the terrorists into “bad” and “acceptable,” throwing its support behind the latter.

“It's absolutely unacceptable, and if we follow this logic it might lead us to a very dangerous situation not only in the Middle East but in other parts of the world, if our partners in the West would begin to qualify terrorists as bad terrorists and acceptable terrorists,” the Russian foreign minister said.

The dichotomization of such a grave issue by the West is almost nothing new. The delisting of MKO, a long-considered terrorists group, by Washington is in line with this process of redefining well-established concepts and terms by the West.

Paradoxically, the MKO has been supported by Washington even when it was on the terrorist list. They even received their training at the hands of the Bush administration.

In an enlightening article, Seymour Hersh revealed that US Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) trained members of the Iranian Mujahideen-e-Khalq (MKO) at a secretive site in Nevada from 2005 to at least 2007. According to Hersh, MKO members “were trained in intercepting communications, cryptography, weaponry and small unit tactics at the Nevada site up until President Obama took office.”

In a separate interview, a retired four-star general said that he had been privately briefed in 2005 about the training of MKO members in Nevada by an American involved in the program. He said that they got “the standard training in commo, crypto [cryptography], small-unit tactics, and weaponry-that went on for six months. They were kept in little pods.” He also was told, he said, that the men doing the training were from JSOC, which, by 2005, had become a major instrument in the Bush Administration’s global war on terror.

To the dismay and disappointment of many, US State Department decided in September to remove the MKO from the terror lists.

US State Department said its decision to delist the group was made because the group has notcommitted any terrorist acts for a decade and brashly whitewashed the fact that the group has been to all intents and purposes instrumental in carrying out nuclear assassinations in the last few years in Iran. Although the group has never officially assumed responsibility for the assassinations (which is quite natural), there is solid evidence suggesting that it has been complicit in these terrorist acts.
The terrorist group made unrelenting efforts for years to be removed from the terror list and enlisted a number of Republican and Democratic officials to lobby on its behalf. Instead of paying lobbying fees to them, “it offered honoraria ranging from $10,000-$50,000 per speech to excoriate the US government for its allegedly shabby treatment of the MEK.

Among those who joined the group's gravy train are former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell, Rudy Giuliani, Alan Dershowitz, and former FBI director Louis Freeh. Many of them profess to have little interest in the money they have collected” (Richard Silverstein, The Guardian September 22, 2012).

MKO has long been engaging in a series of sabotage and terrorist activities against the Islamic Republic in league with Israeli intelligence agencies.

In January 2012, Benny Gantz, the Israeli Defense Forces chief of staff, told a parliamentary committee: "For Iran, 2012 is a critical year in combining the continuation of its nuclearisation, internal changes in the Iranian leadership, continuing and growing pressure from the international community and things which take place in an unnatural manner."


Just 24 hours after Israeli military chief warned of unnatural events for Iran, Iranian nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was assassinated in broad daylight. It soon transpired that it had been a joint Mossad-MKO operation.
The MKO has reportedly assassinated over 12,000 Iranian citizens, seven American citizens, and tens of thousands of Iraqi nationals.

Anyhow, the dichotomization of ‘terrorists’ into good and bad is far uglier than any form of apartheid.

A comparatively similar story is being repeated in Syria. Washington has branded the Qatar-funded Al-Nusra Front as a terrorist organization. But why? They are fighting against the government of Bashar al-Assad together with other militants in Syria who are chiefly composed of foreign mercenaries. The former are considered terrorists simply because they to a large extent fly in the face of Washington’s policies in Syria. So, it is Washington or the US-led West which decides who is a terrorist and who is not.

Let us not forget that the notorious al Qaeda which is sowing seeds of blind extremism and religious sectarianism in the world was founded and financially supported in the seventies by Washington and CIA in an apparent bid to fight the Soviets. Robin Cook laments the creation of al Qaeda and says, “Bin Laden was, though, a product of a monumental miscalculation by western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. Al-Qaida, literally "the database", was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians. Inexplicably, and with disastrous consequences, it never appears to have occurred to Washington that once Russia was out of the way, Bin Laden's organization would turn its attention to the west.”

This CIA-created Frankenstein's monster has not changed for the better but has grown up monstrously.

Truly known to be one of the most misinterpreted and misused words, terrorism is defined and refined by the West according to the context where it proves deleterious or beneficial to those who define the term.

Hunger Games "Experiment" Said Behind Connecticut Massacre (CIA, DARPA)



An new report prepared by the Federal Security Services (FSB) circulating in the Kremlin today on the horrific Connecticut Massacre is suggesting that these deaths may have been associated with the production of a video game based on the popular book Hunger Games which is about a post-apocalyptic United States where the killing of children is glorified as entertainment for the privileged elite classes.

According to this report, and as we had previously reported on in our report Connecticut Massacre Blamed On Son Of Top CIA Analyst, Nancy Champion Lanza[photo 2nd left], believed to be one of the Central Intelligence Agencies (CIA) top psychological analysts working on Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) video game production, is said by Russian intelligence analysts to have been a “close working partner” with Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins who washer neighbor in the affluent Connecticut village of Newton where they both resided.

Though being described in the US mainstream propaganda media as a mysterious “doomsday prepper” and “gun enthusiast” who, without a job, lived in a $1.6 million mansion, this report continues, Nancy Champion Lanza demonstrates all of the characteristics and lifestyle the CIA creates for those of its top agent-analysts who work in the netherworld between American intelligence agencies, their nations corporations and their countries schools whose students have long been subjected to mass experimentation.

Unbeknownst to the vast majority of the American people is the CIA’s long history of unethical experimentation on children, and other citizens, without their knowledge, a fact known since 1977 when through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request over 16,000 pages of mind control documents were found as part of that intelligence agencies financial history.

And it hasn’t stopped since, for example, between1988-2008 the number of overseas experiments on children for drugs paid for by US intelligence agencies, intended for American consumption, increased by 2,000%, to approximately 6,500 trials. These trials are often conducted in areas with large numbers of poor and illiterate people who grant their consent by signing an “X” or making a thumb print on a form. In May 2004, also, a young American man named Dan Markingson committed suicide in one such controversial study conducted by the University of Minnesota Department of Psychiatry of atypical antipsychotics.

Even worse, this report continues, was the CIA accelerating its funding of violent video game development after the results of a ground-breaking 2001 study titled Effects Of Violent Video Games On Aggressive Behavior, Aggressive Cognition, Aggressive Affect, Physiological Arousal, And Prosocial Behavior: A Meta-Analytic Review of the Scientific Literature conducted by Iowa State University researchers Craig A. Anderson and Brad J. Bushman revealed that:

“Research on exposure to television and movie violence suggests that playing violent video games will increase aggressive behavior. A metaanalytic review of the video-game research literature reveals that violent video games increase aggressive behavior in children and young adults. Experimental and non-experimental studies with males and females in laboratory and field settings support this conclusion. Analyses also reveal that exposure to violent video games increases physiological arousal and aggression-related thoughts and feelings. Playing violent video games also decreases prosocial behavior.”

In the new CIA financed Hunger Games video game being developed, FSB analysts speculate in this report, Nancy Champion Lanza could very well have had DARPA authorization to pay schools, such as Sandy Hook Elementary, to conduct experiments on young children such as DARPA’s “hackerspaces” project involving high school students, but which Mitch Altman, a co-founder of Noisebridge, noted to the New York Times, “Having these [DARPA] programs in schools is fantastic, but the military calling the shots in American education? I don’t see that as a positive move.”

Important to note, and as we noted in our previous report on this massacre, the FSB received an extensive file on CIA and DARPA video game projects from Iranian intelligence officials after the August, 2011 arrest of CIA agent Amir Mirza Hekmati.

In a video confession to Iranian intelligence officials, Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, a former US Marine of Iranian descent, confessed to a career in American intelligence that included a stint at a video game company in New York that he said was “a cover for the CIA.”

According to an English translation of the report published by The Tehran Times, an Iranian state-run newspaper, about one-third of the way through the report, Hekmati said he had worked for DARPA, after he left the Marine Corps in 2005.

Then, Hekmati said in Persian: “After DARPA I was recruited by Kuma Games Company, a computer games company which received money from CIA to design and make special films and computer games to change the public opinion’s mindset in the Middle East and distribute them among Middle East residents free of charge. The goal of Kuma Games was to convince the people of the world and Iraq that what the U.S. does in Iraq and other countries is good and acceptable.”

Hekmati further added: “The head of Kuma called me and said, ‘I have received your resume from DARPA, and we have a program in which you can help us.’ ” Kuma, Hekmati explained, “was also a cover for the CIA. and only the chief of company knows that you’re working with the agency.”

Most ominous to note in this report is its conclusions, that as many in America are using this massacre to outlaw guns, the “real” threat facing these peoples are the generations of children being given powerful psychotropic drugs, so they’ll be quiet in class, that when combined with the violence their parents and society surround them with through violent video games, television and movies, is making monsters of them all.

Connecticut Massacre Blamed On Son Of Top CIA Analyst

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers









A grim Federal Security Services (FSB) security memorandum circulating in the Kremlin today is reporting that the man, Adam Lanza [photo 2nd left], believed responsible for the horrific massacre of 20 children and 6 adults yesterday was the son of one of the Central Intelligence Agencies (CIA) top psychological analysts who was assigned to a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) project which developed the sub-hunting simulator video game Dangerous Waters.

According to FSB analysts in this memorandum, Adam Lanza attacked the Sandy Hook primary education school in the Connecticut County of Fairfield, known as the“hedge fund ghetto” due to its being one of the wealthiest counties in the United States, where he killed school officials and an entire class of children Russian intelligence experts believe were a part of a DARPA “experiment” being oversaw by his mother Nancy Champion Lanza.

The total death count from this massacre is 28 as it, also, includes both Adam Lanza and his mother.

Though initial US news reports claimed Nancy Champion Lanza was a teacher at the Sandy Hook school, this report states this information is not true, and which has been confirmed by local school authorities, including Lillian Bittman, who served on the local school board until 2011, who stated, “No one has heard of her, teachers don’t know her.”

Russian intelligence files on Nancy Champion Lanza, however, say she lived the majority of her life in and around what is known as the Merrimack Valley Region of Massachusetts and New Hampshire and that the weapons used in this massacre, said to be owned by her, are standard CIA issue. US news reports are further stating that her brother, James Champion, a retired Kingston, New Hampshire police officer, is currently being questioned by the FBI.

In early 2009, this report continues, Nancy Champion Lanza relocated to Connecticut as the DARPA projects she was assigned to have their headquarters at the USNaval Submarine Base New London in Groton.

Important to note is that the FSB received an extensive file on CIA and DARPA video game projects from Iranian intelligence officials after the August, 2011 arrest of CIA agent Amir Mirza Hekmati.

In a video confession to Iranian intelligence officials, Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, a former US Marine of Iranian descent, confessed to a career in American intelligence that included a stint at a video game company in New York that he said was “a cover for the CIA.”

According to an English translation of the report published by The Tehran Times, an Iranian state-run newspaper, about one-third of the way through the report, Hekmati said he had worked for DARPA, after he left the Marine Corps in 2005.

Then, Hekmati said in Persian: “After DARPA I was recruited by Kuma Games Company, a computer games company which received money from CIA to design and make special films and computer games to change the public opinion’s mindset in the Middle East and distribute them among Middle East residents free of charge. The goal of Kuma Games was to convince the people of the world and Iraq that what the U.S. does in Iraq and other countries is good and acceptable.”

Hekmati further added: “The head of Kuma called me and said, ‘I have received your resume from DARPA, and we have a program in which you can help us.’ ”Kuma, Hekmati explained, “was also a cover for the CIA. and only the chief of company knows that you’re working with the agency.”

The FSB notes in this report that Russia, too, has experienced the grim aftereffects of violent Western video games naming the November 2012 workplace rampage that left 6 dead in Moscow and prompted authorities to begin the process of outright banning them in the Motherland as numerous research studies have linked them to violence and mass killings.

Perhaps most shocking in this report are FSB analysts stating that this latest massacre “could very well have been” a “retaliation” after the failed mass shooting in Portland, Oregon earlier in the week, and as we reported on in our report titled “US Military Sniper Stops Portland Mall Massacre”.

As we have detailed in many previous reports, the ongoing war between those factions loyal to President Obama, opposed to those aligned with the US Military and intelligence agencies, is taking an ever growing toll upon the American public and with this latest massacre shows no signs of abating.

Sadly, but always the case, the American people will be the last to know the truth of these matters as the popular US dissident website Infowars.com is already reporting that the news of this latest massacre is already being“changed and censored” to protect those who are really to blame.

New Palestinian group vows 3rd intifada




A Palestinian throws stones at Israeli soldiers during clashes in the West Bank city of al-Khalil, December 13, 2012.

Sun Dec 16, 2012 8:19AM GMT

Palestinian youths in the West Bank city of al-Khalil have reportedly formed a group with the aim of bringing about a third intifada in the occupied territories.

According to a video recently posted on the Internet, the National Union Battalions group said it will fight to recover “all of Palestine.”

Members of Palestinian groups like Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) are the founders of the group.

“This is the beginning of a third Palestinian intifada, which is erupting from the heart of al-Khalil and will spread to all of Palestine,” the group said.

It also warned the Tel Aviv regime to stop arresting Palestinians in the West Bank, or face the consequences.

“If Israel kills Palestinian people, [Palestinians] will kill in return and will strike Israel with an iron fist,” said the representatives of the group in the four-minute video.

They also stated that the group would not give up “one inch of Palestine, from the sea to the river.”

The group also called for the removal of all Israeli barriers in the West Bank, the release of all Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails, a complete Israeli withdrawal from Palestinian land, the cessation of Israeli offensive against the citizens of al-Khalil, the opening of crossings to the Gaza Strip and the transfer of Palestinian tax revenues, which has been blocked by Israel since the UN vote on upgrading the status of Palestine.

The group supported the UN recognition of Palestine as a non-member observer state, which is seen as a long-sought victory for the Palestinians, but an embarrassing diplomatic defeat for the Israeli regime and the United States.

Le chef de l’opposition syrienne, au secours d’al-Qaïda, en Syrie !, par Louis Denghien

Le chef de l’opposition syrienne, au secours d’al-Qaïda, en Syrie !, par Louis Denghien

IRIB- À Marrakech, rien de nouveau :

les mêmes qui soutenaient hier le Conseil national syrien, le déclarant «seul représentant légitime du peuple syrien«, viennent d’accorder le même label à la «Coalition nationale syrienne», nouvelle façade de l’opposition radicale à direction islamiste, et créée voici un mois et quelque sous les auspices et les dollars de l’émir du Qatar. Les mêmes, ce sont évidemment les soi-disant «Amis de la Syrie«, c’est-à-dire la coalition des États-Unis et de leurs alliés et clients européens et arabes, au premier rang desquels la France dont le chef de la diplomatie, Laurent Fabius, a exhorté les pays regroupés, à Marrakech, à reconnaître «individuellement» cette opposition, sous licence du Qatar et de l’OTAN.

Al-Khatib, au secours d’al-Nosra

C’est donc à nouveau, dans une large mesure, un de ces non-événements dont les Occidentaux alimentent régulièrement la chronique de l’actualité syrienne. La Coalition demeure un rassemblement d’exilés dans les mains de puissances étrangères et dominé par les Frères musulmans, rien de très attractif pour le peuple syrien qu’ils prétendent représenter. Mais cette «reconnaissance» étrangère permet aux robots ignares et sans mémoire de nos médias – en l’occurrence, ce matin, le deux potiches de BFMTV – de ressortir sans rire leur antienne un rien usée «Bachar al-Assad est de plus en plus isolé». On sait bien que la méthode Coué tient lieu d’analyse et les slogans d’informations à nombre de nos journalistes, mais on ne peut s’empêcher d’avoir encore un peu honte pour eux (on est trop sensibles, peut-être….)

En tous cas, et nos journalistes ont apparemment oublié de le souligner, cette déclaration de conformité de l’opposition radicale aux normes américaines et qatari coïncide avec une intervention lourde de sens du chef de la Coalition de Doha, cheikh Ahmed Moaz al-Khatib, Frère musulman, dans le civil, qui a, carrément, critiqué l’administration américaine, pour avoir placé le Front al-Nosra, groupe djihadiste dominant, dans le Nord de la Syrie, sur leur liste des organisations terroristes.

Oui, le chef de cette coalition de stipendiés de l’Étranger – l’Arabie saoudite a annoncé, à Marrakech, une aide de… 100 millions de dollars à cette opposition dite syrienne -, que viennent d’adouber les Occidentaux, trouve que ce n’est pas bien de la part des Américains de désigner comme «terroriste» un groupe qui se revendique, ouvertement, d’al-Qaïda, et qui a commis, Washington le reconnaît, des dizaines d’attentats à la voiture piégée ayant fait des centaines de morts et blessés civils et militaires. De nouveaux attentats ont, d’ailleurs, frappé Damas, hier, faisant, au moins, 11 morts et des dizaines de blessés.

C’est à des «détails», comme celui-ci qu’on mesure la modération du chef de la Coalition de Doha, (reçu, avec componction, par François Hollande), qui estime que les égorgeurs et terroristes fondamentalistes d’al-Nosra sont un partenaire respectable, dans la lutte contre le gouvernement syrien. Et sa crédibilité : la Coalition avait claironné, voici peu, qu’elle allait donner à la rébellion un nouveau commandement militaire, chapeautant tous les groupes armés, à l’exception, précisément, des djihadistes d’al-Nosra ! Alors, quand est-ce que M. Al-Khatib a menti ?

Quand Le Monde ne veut pas qu’on «criminalise trop al-Nosra !

D’ailleurs al-Khatib n’est pas le seul à vouloir sauver la mise à al-Nosra. Le Monde a tendu le micro, le 12 décembre, à un spécialiste suédois, Aron Lund, qui tout en étant bien obligé de reconnaître que cette organisation est bien « djihadiste salafiste » et que son but est, au-delà de la Syrie, de «lutter contre l’Occident et les gouvernements chiites« , estime qu’al-Nosra n’est perçu «par la plupart» des Syriens, non comme un groupe de terroristes, mais justes comme des rebelles «peut-être extrémistes», mais qui ont le mérite, donc, de combattre le gouvernement.

 Et Lund d’ajouter que de «nombreux Syriens opposés au régime» sont «agacés par cette décision américaine qui criminalise une partie de l’opposition« . Oui, vous avez bien lu, selon ce fou, on ne doit pas criminaliser al-Nosra, qui, pourtant, s’en est très bien chargé tout seul ! Il est vrai, c’est incontestable, que le djihadisme est devenu, ces derniers mois, «une partie de l’opposition» syrienne, et même une partie essentielle.

On se demande quel est le panel de Syriens sélectionné par Lund pour arriver à des affirmations aussi délirantes. Quant au Monde, il est dans son rôle d’artisan sournois de la destruction de la Syrie, en laissant accroire que les al-Nosra, suprêmement intolérants, massacreurs, décapiteurs et poseurs de bombes sont peut-être utiles et légitimes dans la lutte sacrée – et de plus en plus irrationnelle d’ailleurs – de l’Occident libéral contre Bachar al-Assad. Après tout, c’est le même journal qui, en 1975, avait salué l’entrée des Khmers rouges, à Pnom Penh : les années et les tendances idéologiques passent, l’irresponsabilité demeure.

Au fond, si cette évolution diplomatique et médiatique est révoltante, elle n’est pas étonnante : au terme de 21 mois de crise, la «révolution syrienne» est devenue une vaste offensive terroriste islamiste contre un pays souverain, ses infrastructures et sa population, offensive soutenue à bout de bras par ceux-là même qui ont déjà détruit l’Irak, la Serbie ou la Libye, et aimeraient bien continuer avec l’Iran.

Un Al-Khatib ne peut, en effet, se permettre de «snober» les barbus à bandeau noir d’al-Nosra, parce qu’ils sont, désormais, la force la mieux organisée, en tout cas, la plus agressive, sur le terrain. Sauf que les djihadistes se moquent bien de sauver les vagues apparences démocratiques et pluralistes dont s’entoure la «Coalition nationale syrienne«. Al-Khatib et les siens pratiquent la fuite en avant militaire, parce que c’est leur seule perspective.

On pourrait, d’ailleurs, en dire autant de leurs protecteurs occidentaux, qui se préparent des lendemains difficiles avec le monstre islamo-terroriste qu’ils n’ont cessé d’engraisser et de conforter, en Syrie.

On sait que la diplomatie est une affaire de cynisme et d’égoïsme (national ou de bloc), mais là cynisme et égoïsme sont suicidaires, à terme, du point de vue de Washington, Londres ou Paris. Après tout, c’est leur problème, et ça va le demeurer un bout de temps.

Moscow surprised by US recognition of Syrian opposition - Lavrov



Members of Free Syrian Army fighters holding their weapons and opposition flags are pictured at Sermada near Idlib. (Reuters)

Russia’s Foreign Minister said the US decision to recognize the Syrian opposition ignores an international pledge to begin a dialogue on Syria’s political future.

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who has played a central role in Russia’s efforts to bring Syria’s rebel opposition and pro-government officials to the negotiating table, said Moscow is “surprised to learn that Washington has recognized the national coalition of Syrian revolutionary forces as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people.”

Lavrov admitted that he was also taken aback by the US decision.

"I was also somewhat surprised to learn that the US, as represented by its President, recognized the national coalition as the only legitimate representative of the Syrian people,” Lavrov said at a press conference following negotiations with Slovak Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak on Wednesday.

US President Barack Obama said the newly created Syrian Opposition Council "is now inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough" to be considered eligible for American support.

"Obviously, with that recognition comes responsibilities," the US leader said in an interview with ABC News.

Moscow would like to see more internal debate from the Syrian people as to what sort of political representation they want.

Washington’s recognition “contradicts the agreements stipulated by the Geneva communiqué, which presume the starting of a common Syrian dialogue," Lavrov noted.

In the course of the protracted Syrian conflict, which represents a grave challenge to the government of President Bashar Assad, Moscow has held talks with both sides in an effort to not only create the conditions for peace, but to avoid any sort of outside military interference, as was the case in Libya.

Lavrov argued that Washington is voicing its support for insurrection by hedging its bet on the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces.'

"Since the coalition has been recognized as the only legitimate representative, the US has apparently decided to stake solely on the armed victory of this very national coalition," the Russian minister concluded.

Military voyeurism or invasion of Syria?





As part of the sinister plan for Syria at work, French military agents have recently held face-to-face meetings with the foreign-backed militants inside the country in a bid to “assess the situation on the ground.

A report carried by French paper Le Figaro on Friday indicates that “Their main task was to know who controls the battlegrounds around Damascus.”

It seems that a West-orchestrated plan to invade the country is under way and that they are teaming up and gearing up for united military action against the country.

The report adds that the meetings were held last month with the full knowledge of the French government and that the French government wants to know the “operational capacity of each group” and their “political colors.”

To make matters worse, NATO has agreed to deploy Patriot missiles on the Syria-Turkey border under the pretense of defending Turkey as Britain has warned Syria of ‘serious consequences’ if the regime used chemical weapons. All the pieces of the puzzle are being meticulously put together by the ‘foes of Syria’ to lend a cloak of legitimacy to an imminent invasion of the country: that Syria mulls using chemical weapons against its own people and the militants, that the war may spill over into Turkey and that Turkey should be able to defend herself against any potential attacks.

While in Brussels for a NATO foreign ministers' meeting, William Hague, British foreign secretary, said that Britain had delivered a stark message to President Bashar al-Assad, echoing the words of the Obama administration on Monday. 

"We are worried about chemical weapons," said Mr. Hague. "We have become more concerned about them in recent days for the same reasons the US has. We have already sent our own, clear, private message directly to the Syrians about the serious consequences that would follow from the use of those weapons."

Syria has blasted NATO’S decision to deploy Patriot missiles as “psychological warfare,” saying the new deployment would not deter it from seeking victory over the militants it views as terrorists.

Despite some Western countries claiming that NATO’s decision to deploy the missiles shows a low appetite on their part for military intervention, it is to be seen as a strong naked message that the West is indeed gearing up for military intervention.

Syria said the NATO deployment shall not make Assad change course, calling the talk of chemical weapons part of a conspiracy to justify future intervention.

“The Turkish step and NATO’s support for it are provocative moves that constitute psychological warfare,” Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said in an interview with Lebanon’s Al-Manar TV. “But if they think this will affect our determination and work for a decisive victory in this fight against terrorism, they are very wrong.”

He added, "In the event that [foreign powers] actually considered an aggression, they should consider the consequences. I believe the cost will be high.... They need to understand that they are putting the entire region and its environs to danger, if they tried to commit such a folly."

That Assad will use chemical weapons against his own population or even the militants is a threadbare claim and a feeble excuse concocted by the West to embark on their initial militaristic voyeurism and eventual military expedition. In fact, it is very much reminiscent of Washington’s claim that Iraq was in possession of Weapons of Mass destruction before it launched a military invasion of the country and brought about a human loss of inconceivable degree. Sadly some realities are soon forgotten. An opinion conducted by Opinion Research Business (ORB) on August 12-19, 2007, indicated a human loss of 1,033,000 in Iraq War. Although the range varies between 946,000 to 1,120,000 deaths, the sheer idea of such colossally disastrous human loss is beyond imagination. According to ORB, “48% died from a gunshot wound, 20% from the impact of a car bomb, 9% from aerial bombardment, 6% as a result of an accident and 6% from another blast/ordnance.”

Russia’s new ambassador to NATO, Alexander Grushko, has de plano perceived some pernicious amount of threat in the move and said, “This is not a threat to us, but this is an indication that NATO is moving towards engagement and that's it. We see a danger of further involvement of NATO into the situation in Syria as a result of provocation or some border incidents.”

It is cruel but highly likely that West may provide the militants with chemical weapons so they may use them against the Syrians and shift the blame on the Syrian government so that they can carry on with their long-thought-out plan of invading the country. This idea is further consolidated when we focus on the attention recently accorded to this issue by the US and some Western countries. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama have for their parts vowed to take action if Syria uses chemical weapons in the country. NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen warned on Tuesday that any use of chemical weapons by Syria against gunmen would prompt an immediate military response.

The sad truth is that they have already formed their coalition against Syria with even Israel being part of this coalition. According to Hebrew-language Maariv newspaper, Tel Aviv is preparing for such a scenario amid increasing speculation that the US military will intervene in Syria “within days” if chemical weapons are used.

The ‘chemical weapons’ scenario seems to be the best cue for Washington and their Western allies in order to gorge the international community on a tacit consent to another military adventurism in the Middle East.

NATO intervention in Syria imminent



Patriot missile batteries (file photo)

On December 7, Voice of Russia (VoR) headlined: "Iraq 2.0, another false-flag invasion rated XXX," saying:
"The US and NATO are set to invade Syria, something many of us have been warning about for a while now. It has been obvious that they have been looking for a pretext and that pretext has already been injected into the public debate."

VoR cited fabricated claims about threatening chemical weapons. Media scoundrels hype them. Sarin nerve gas was mentioned. Reports claimed Assad readied it in bombs. No evidence whatever was cited.

They're ready to go but haven't been loaded on planes, said an unnamed US official. Pentagon spokesman George Little said "any consideration of the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime would be unacceptable."

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said:

"I think there is no question that we remain very concerned, very concerned that as the opposition advances, in particular on Damascus, that the regime might very well consider the use of chemical weapons. The intelligence that we have causes serious concerns that this is being considered."

"The president of the United States has made very clear there will be consequences, there will be consequences if the Assad regime makes a terrible mistake by using these chemical weapons on their own people."

On December 7, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Miqdad was unequivocal, saying:

"Syria stresses again, for the 10th, the 100th time, that if we had such weapons, they would not be used against our people. We would not commit suicide."

The alleged Syrian chemical weapons threat replicates bogus allegations about Saddam's nonexistent WMDs. It's similar to falsified claims about Gaddafi, the Taliban, and numerous other invented US enemies.

Big Lies launch wars. In "The Art of War," Sun Tzu said "All war is based on deception." It's true now like in ancient times. Instant global communications, super-weapons, and scoundrel media complicity make today's threat especially ominous.

Washington's rage for war threatens humanity. Peace doesn't have a chance. Media scoundrels hype false threats. Repeated ad nauseam, people believe them.

No matter how many previous times they were fooled, they buy the Big Lie again. It happens every time. They're being set up again now.

Administration, congressional, and Pentagon officials are preparing the public for more war. Falsified headlines hype nonexistent threats. Humanity hangs in the balance. Where this ends, who knows.

In early December, UN officials said they're recalling all non-essential Syrian staff. Growing conflict dangers were cited. Perhaps advance word of imminent NATO intervention was gotten.

On December 6, CNN cited a Pentagon spokesman Little saying Washington updated its military options for potentially striking Syria. "We are prepared for a full range of contingencies," said Little.

He added that US forces have all the firepower needed in the region for full-scale war if ordered. A previous article said Washington positioned considerable military strength off Syria's coast.

It includes 10,000 combat troops, 70 fighter-bombers, 17 or more warships (including the USS Eisenhower and Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group), heavy armaments, offensive Patriot missiles, Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System readiness, and Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) capability.

It suggests US-led NATO intervention could happen any time. More than ever it looks imminent.

On December 7, Syria Deeply headlined "EXCLUSIVE: US Trains Rebel Brigades to Secure Chemical Weapons," saying:

Washington and NATO allies "hired contractors" to train opposition Syrian mercenaries. Four unnamed diplomats, including a US official, said exercises are ongoing in Turkey and Jordan.

At issue is whether Washington plans a false flag chemical attack as pretext for full-scale US-led NATO intervention. Syria Deeply stopped short of suggesting it.

Obama and Clinton said using them crosses a "red line." Washington would respond.

On December 7, Hillary Clinton urged all parties involved to make a "concerted push" to resolve the Syrian conflict. Perhaps imminent intervention was hinted.

France's Le Figero said French military advisers met with opposition fighters inside Syria. So have US and UK elements. At issue is assessing operational capabilities of different groups and choosing which ones get weapons.

On December 4, NATO foreign ministers met in Brussels. They expressed solidarity with Turkey. They agreed to deter any potential threat Ankara faces. There's none, but they suggested otherwise.

On December 6, Germany's Suddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) headlined:

"Nato-Fuhrung erwagt militarische Intervention in Syrien (NATO leadership is considering military intervention in Syria)."

Multiple sources told SZ that NATO Secretary-General Fogh Rasmussen said the alliance can't "stick its head in the sand." NATO is prepared to intervene in Syria if ordered.

Earlier Rasmussen said NATO had no intention of doing so. He lied. Perhaps it's been planned all along.

SZ said Rasmussen is supported by Washington, Britain and Turkey. The Pentagon will suggest ways to implement a no-fly zone.

Rasmussen asked what would NATO do if Syria uses chemical weapons? What if Iran blocks the Strait of Hormuz? Germany, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Poland discount a chemical weapons threat.

Russia told NATO members to take inflammatory threats with a grain of salt. Previous ones proved false. This time isn't different.

SZ said NATO foreign ministers failed to reach common ground. It's unlikely to matter. Washington, Britain, Turkey, Rasmussen, and apparently France favor intervention. No combination of other countries can stop them.

On December 7, Mossad-connected DEBKAfile headlined "Paris: NATO-Arab Syria intervention imminent," saying:

"Sources close to the French Defense Ministry" said intervention "is due to begin shortly with the participation of the US, France, Britain, Turkey, Jordan and other anti-Assad Arab nations."

France deployed the aircraft carrier Charles De Gaulle in the Mediterranean. Combat marines are on board. Britain has at least five warships nearby. They've joined Washington's battle group.

In November, British and French forces "performed landing-and-capture exercises against fortified locations on the coast and mountains of Albania as practice for potential operations against similar terrain in Syria, where the Alawite Mountains loom over the coastal towns of Latakia and Tartus."

"French sources told Le Point magazine that the NATO mission for Syria, including the UK and the US, would be modeled on the Western intervention in Libya in 2011."

"It would combine an aerial blitz with ground action by special forces for destroying Assad’s chemical weapons stocks, his air force and his air defense systems."

Apparently winds of war reached gale force. Expect full-scale intervention any time. It could come before or right after Christmas and New Year's.

A previous article called today perhaps the most perilous time in world history. Daily events should scare everyone.

Possible regional or global war looms. Disastrous consequences could follow. Obama may head humanity into the abyss. Perhaps there's no way to stop him.

It's vital for anti-war activists to challenge what's too potentially catastrophic to tolerate. The risks are far too great to stay sidelined.

مخطط استبدال "اسرائيل" بإيران: بداياته وغاياته ومصيره؟


حسين ملاح

منذ اللحظة الاولى لانتصار الثورة الاسلامية في ايران عام 1979، عكفت دوائر الغرب بجناحيه الاميركي والاوروبي مستعينة بدول عربية وخليجية بشكل خاص على وضع مخططات لاستهداف النهج الايراني الجديد ، خاصة مع رفع الثورة الاسلامية بقيادة الامام الخميني (قده) شعار دعم حركات المقاومة في لبنان وفلسطين لاستعادة الحقوق العربية والاسلامية ، وهو ما أربك المشاريع الاميركية المعدة للمنطقة خاصة مع توقيع اتفاقية كامب ديفيد واخراج مصر السادات من معادلة الصراع مع العدو الصهيوني ، ومنذ تلك اللحظة بدأت الغرف السوداء بإعداد العدة لضرب الثورة معتمدين على وسائل شتى من الحرب العسكرية والاستخباراتية وصولاً الى التحريض القومي والمذهبي …

بداية مخطط ضرب ايران تحت ستار "منع تصدير الثورة الاسلامية"!!!!

لم تكد تمضي اشهر بل ايام قليلة على انتصار الثورة الاسلامية (عام 1979) حتى بدأت موجة اغتيالات استهدفت شخصيات بارزة في الثورة (الشهيد بهشتي ، الشهيد مطهري وغيرهم) وذلك عبر سلسلة عمليات هدفت الى زرع الفوضى في البلاد مستعينة بعناصر داخلية جُندت من قبل اجهزة مخابرات أجنبية.
ولم تكد تنتهي الثورة من اجتياز حاجز الاغتيالات والفوضى حتى أعلن صدام حسين الحرب على ايران في ظل دعم غربي ومالي وفرته دول خليجية متخفية تحت عباءة "حماية العالم العربي" من بوابته الشرقية، ورغم الخسائر الكبيرة في الارواح والاموال استطاعت الجمهورية الاسلامية افشال تلك الحرب ، فلجأت واشنطن وحلفاؤها الى المعارك السياسية لعزل طهران ، بعد مد القيادة الايرانية جسور تواصل مع حركات المقاومة الفلسطينية واللبنانية.
وتمثلت هذه المعارك بمحاولة اختزال القضية الفلسطينية والاحتلال الاسرائيلي لأراضٍ عربية عبر توقيع اتفاقيات "سلام" (اوسلو، وادي عربة) ، وترافق ذلك مع لجوء الكيان الصهيوني الى الزج بترسانته العسكرية للقضاء على المقاومة في فلسطين وتصعيد الاغتيالات بحق قادة المقاومة واجتياح المدن الفلسطينية ، كذلك عمد العدو الى شن حربين على لبنان صيف (1993) وربيع (1996) .
وبعد الفشل في تحقيق اهدافهم عمد الصهاينة الى الانسحاب من جنوب لبنان (2000) وبعده قطاع غزة وهو ما دفع "اسرائيل" وامريكا ومعهم حلف ما يسمى "الاعتدال العربي" الى التصويب على ايران بصفتها رأس "محور الممانعة" ، فبدأ التبشير بخطورة ما أسموه "الهلال الشيعي" وانتشر في الفضائيات والصحف المدعومة من قبل دول خليجية العزف على الوتر المذهبي في محاولة لتأليب الرأي العام العربي والاسلامي ضد ايران بهدف عزلها على الساحة الاسلامية والعربية وابعادها عن قضايا العرب الاساسية وفي مقدمتها احتلال فلسطين.
غزو العراق ومرحلة جديدة من التحريض المذهبي
أمام نجاح ايران في استيعاب الحملات ضدها وصمود المقاومتين الفلسطينية واللبنانية بدعم وغطاء سوري بوجه الاحتلال الصهيوني ، سعت الادارة الاميركية الى التدخل عسكرياً في المنطقة متذرعة بالحرب على "الارهاب" بعد احداث ايلول / سبمتبر فإحتلت افغانستان والعراق. وبعد فشلها في هذين البلدين انطلقت حملة تحريض مذهبية ضد ايران ساعدت فيها اطراف عربية واقليمية عملت على تغذية الشعور المذهبي خاصة في العراق الذي دخل بدوامة عنف حصدت مئات الالالف من الابرياء.
ورغم ذلك استطاع العراقيون تحقيق نجاح جزئي في منع انتشار الفتنة في بلدهم ودفعوا الاميركيين الى الخروج منه وهو ما وصف بضربة قوية لمحور "الاعتدال العربي" (لخوفه من غياب الخاضنة الاميركية) ، وبدلاً من الانفتاح على ايران وانشاء تعاون معها رفع محور "الاعتدال العربي" من سقف تمويله لحملات التحريض ضد ايران وبدأوا بتصويرها على انها عدو العالم العربي الجديد.


انقلاب الموازين …..ايران بدل "اسرائيل" عدوا للعرب!!

حملة التحريض ضد ايران وصلت الى مستوى غير مسبوق في السنتين الاخيرتين خاصة مع سقوط ابرز حلفاء واشنطن في المنطقة حسني مبارك في مصر وزين العابدين بن علي في تونس ، وشعر معه الغرب ودول "الاعتدال" العربي بانهم اصيبوا بضربة قوية ، فوجدوا في الازمة السورية التي اندلعت لاحقاً فرصة للنيل من ايران لقربها من سورية ولما تمثل هذه الاخيرة من اهمية بالنسبة الى دعم المقاومة في لبنان وفلسطين. 
هنا وجدت امريكا وحلفاؤها العرب في الازمة السورية فرصة ذهبية لتسعير الفتنة والتحريض ضد ايران وايقاع الشرخ في صفوف حركات المقاومة ، وتحميل ايران مسؤولية نزيف الدم السوري عبر القول ان الحرب في سورية هي بين اقلية علوية تحتكر السلطة ضد اغلبية سنية ، فسُخرت وسائل الاعلام على اختلاف انواعها لتحقيق هذا الهدف وزُج بالفتاوى الدينية واستقدم الاف المقاتلين من شتى البلدان الى سورية تحت عناوين "الجهاد" ، وسط هذا كله بدأت محاولات للايحاء بان "اسرائيل" هي كيان طبيعي يمكن التعايش معه وان ايران هي دخيلة على المنطقة وتسعى الى بسط نفوذها.
اما القيادة الايرانية فكانت اول من رحب بالثورات في تونس ومصر ووصفتها بالصحوة الاسلامية ونادت بضرورة الاصلاح في سورية واعتماد الانتخابات والخيار الشعبي للوصول الى عملية تحول ديمقراطي في هذا البلد داعية الى ابعاد عناصر التدخل الاجنبي وحصر الحل بالسوريين لتسوية خلافاتهم ، ورغم ذلك اصرت اطراف سورية بتحريض اميركي على رفض اية حلول رافعين شعار اسقاط النظام ولو بالقوة المسلحة.

وفي هذا الاطار يرى الكاتب والمحلل السياسي مخائيل عوض ان محاولات ضرب ايران وتشويه صورتها (خاصة مع اندلاع الاحداث السورية) اتت بعد سلسلة الانتصارات التي حققها المقاومون في لبنان وفلسطين والذين وضعوا حداً لتفوق الكيان الصهيوني وهو ما لم يحتمله داعمو هذا الكيان على رأسهم الادارة الاميركية ، التي جندت حلفاءها من العرب والمنطقة وسعت جاهدة لعزل طهران ومحاصرتها وفي تفكيرهم ان ضرب الرأس ويتداعى بعدها الجسد.
كيفية التصدي لمخطط استهداف ايران؟
وبحسب عوض فإن مشروع استهداف ايران سيظل قائما طالما بقيت القضية الفلسطينية حية مؤكدا ان افضل وسيلة لمنع اصحاب مشاريع الفتنة في بلاد الغرب والعرب هو الاستمرار في احياء هذه القضية ومواصلة نهج المقاومة في لبنان وفلسطين والعمل على شد الاهتمام العربي والاسلامي اليها (فلسطين) وجعلها بوصلة الصراع لتمييز العدو من الصديق، ولعل صواريخ المقاومة الفلسطينية الاخيرة التي وصلت للمرة الاولى الى تل ابيب تُثبت بالدليل القاطع ان الجمهورية الاسلامية هي خير داعم للقضية الفلسطينية وليس من رفع شعار "السلام" كخيار لاسترجاع الحقوق المسلوبة...

قيادة عسكرية جديدة للمجموعات المسلحة في سورية


مسلحون في سورياأُعلن في تركيا عن انشاءِ قيادةٍ عسكرية جديدة للمجموعات المسلحة في سوريا برعاية دولية.

واوضح مصدر قريب من هذا المجلس ان التشكيلَ الجديدَ لا يضمُ جبهةَ النصرة القريبةَ من تنظيم القاعدة، وتم استبعادُ العميد مصطفى الشيخ والعقيد رياض الاسعد. وحضر عمليةَ تشكيلِ المجلس مسؤولون امنيون من الولايات المتحدة وبريطانيا وفرنسا والخليج والاردن.

وقال الامين العام للائتلاف المعارض مصطفى الصباغ على هامش مشاركته في حوار المنامة حول الامن الاقليمي "لقد تم تشكيل المجلس العسكري الاعلى وفقا لاتفاقية الدوحة، ويضم قادة الكتائب التي تقاتل النظام وخصوصا الجيش الحر، وسيتم الاعلان عنه قبل مدة قصيرة من مؤتمر اصدقاء سوريا في مراكش" في 12 من الشهر الحالي. وقال الصباغ أن المجلس"لا يضم جبهة النصرة فالتنظيمات المتطرفة اقلية".
ورأى ان "تشكيل المجلس انجاز كبير يوحد العمل العسكري" مشيراً الى ان "الدعم المادي الذي نتلقاه سيمر الى المجلس حصريا".
وفي تركيا قالت مصادر بالمعارضة بحسب رويترز ان القيادة الجديدة للمعارضة المسلحة التي تم تشكيلها اختارت العميد سليم إدريس رئيسا لها.

آلاف من انصار المعارضة البحرينية يخرجون في مسيرة بالقرب من المنامة
خرج آلاف من انصار المعارضة في البحرين في قرية المقشع التي تبعد حوالي كيلومترين عن العاصمة المنامة، يوم 7 ديسمبر/كانون الأول في مسيرة سمحت السلطات البحرينية  بتنظيمها. وطالب المعارضون بتنحي رئيس الوزراء ا الذي يحتفظ بهذا المنصب منذ استقلال البحرين في 1974.
وأكد الشيخ علي سلمان، الأمين العام لجمعية الوفاق على أن التظاهر والتجمع السلمي "حق إنساني ومنظم في المواثيق والمعاهدات الدولية.. حقنا في التجمع والتظاهر السلمي لا نقاش فيه، ولا تنازل عنه.. في العاصمة وغيرها، مع مراعاتنا واحترامنا لحقوق ومصالح الآخرين".
واشار سلمان إلى أن السعي يتركز على "تمكين الشعب البحريني بكل مكوناته من انتخاب سلطته التشريعية والرقابية وانتخاب سلطته التنفيذية وأن يكون النظام بكل أجهزته التنفيذية والتشريعية والقضائية والأمنية والإعلامية والاقتصادية في خدمة الشعب وليس جلاداً وقاهراً له.. نريد أن يكون منصب رئيس الوزراء خادم لهذا الشعب".
وطالب سلمان بـ"الحوار الجاد والتفاوض من أجل إنتاج حل سياسي ديمقراطي يحترم حقوق الجميع وينقذ البحرين" نافيا السعي إلى إقامة دولة دينية أو طائفية عبر القول إن المعارضة البحرينية "تتطلع إلى دولة ديمقراطية حديثة تضمن حقوق ومصالح الجميع".

مشاركة واسعة فلسطينية وعربية في مهرجان انطلاقة حركة "حماس" بغزة
توافدت حشود فلسطينية هائلة صباح يوم 8 ديسمبر/كانون الأول إلى ساحة الكتيبة وسط مدينة غزة، للمشاركة في مهرجان إحياء الذكرى الـ25 لانطلاقة حركة "حماس".
ومن المرتقب ان يلقي خالد مشعل، رئيس المكتب السياسي لحماس الكلمة الرئيسة في المهرجان.
كما تشارك في المهرجان وفود عربية وإسلامية قدمت من العديد من البلدان لأول مرة. وقال مدير عام المعابر في غزة إن ثلاثة آلاف شخص وصلوا إلى غزة في الأيام الماضية، من مصر وماليزيا وقطر والأردن ولبنان والسعودية والجزائر والبحرين، وبريطانيا، للتضامن والمشاركة في مهرجان انطلاقة حماس، التي اعلنت رسمياً أن 2500 شخصية جاءت من أرجاء العالم للمشاركة في مهرجان الانطلاقة.
وكان لافتاً منصة المهرجان، التي وضع عليها مجسم كبير لصاروخ M75  الذي أعلنت كتائب القسام أنها أطلقته على تل أبيب خلال المواجهة الأخيرة، فيما كانت خلفية المهرجان عبارة عن مجسم حمل اسم حماس، وبدا كبوابة عكا، في إشارة رمزية كما يقول أحد منفذي المنصة بأن صواريخ القسام قد تطال عكا في المواجهة المقبلة.
وقال المتحدث باسم حماس، سامي أبو زهري ان كلمة مشعل ستحدد الخطوط العريضة لأولويات حماس في المستقبل ولاسيما تنفيذ المصالحة مع فتح التي أعلنت رسمياً أنها ستشارك في الحفل.
وقال مصدر في حماس، إنه سيكون هناك عدة مفاجآت خلال المهرجان، من بينها إلقاء كلمة لأحد كبار المسؤولين عن كتائب القسام، فيما تحدثت أنباء أن المفاجأة الأساسية ستكون إعلان تجديد ولاية مشعل في رئاسة المكتب السياسي لحماس، بعد أن كان أعلن في الأشهر الماضية عدم رغبته الترشح لتجديد ولايته في هذا الموقع.

Extremists seek settling scores with pro-Syrian forces in Tripoli: Analyst



A prominent Beirut-based professor tells Press TV that the latest deadly clashes in Tripoli in north Lebanon between the pro and anti-Syrian forces show that the anti-Syrian Salafists in Lebanon are now trying to settle scores with the pro-Syrian elements.

At least five more people have been killed during the latest clashes between supporters and opponents of the Syrian government in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli. The Lebanese army units are tracking down pro- and anti-Assad gunmen and have managed to seize a quantity of machine guns, hand grenades, ammunition, and military equipment. Tripoli has been the scene of clashes between the two groups over the past months. Several people have been killed and injured in the clashes and the fighting has forced residents to leave the volatile neighborhoods.

Press TV has talked with Hilal al-Khashan, professor of the American University of Beirut from Beirut to further discuss the issue at hand. What follows is an approximate transcription if the interview.

Press TV: If we are looking at what is happening it is obvious that it is attributed to the spillover effect from Syria but how dangerous is this? How much further can it escalate based on your opinion?

Khashan: Well, the situation in northern Lebanon has always been tense, especially for the past couple of years.

Now the latest round of violence in Tripoli comes in the aftermath of the incident on border with Syria when a group of 22 Salafists were killed by the Syrian army and it appears as if the Salafi movement in northern Lebanon, especially in Tripoli, wants to settle score with the pro-Syrian regime supporters in the capital.

Now we have a new front in Tripoli and that is very alarming and the [Lebanese] army has not been able to contain the violence, so we are bracing ourselves for the worst.


Press TV: And do you think that there are other factors that are behind stirring some of the friction that exist between the pro and the anti-Syrian camps?

Khashan: Yes, I mean the friction had been there since [for] four years but it has accelerated since the beginning of the Syrian uprising and clashes [have] occurred over the past two years but now with the latest incident on the border with Syria, it appears as if the anti-regime of Syria [forces] in northern Lebanon have taken matters to a new dimension of hostilities.

المعارضة تشهر "الكارت الأحمر" في وجه مرسي: لا للحوار!



أعلنت المعارضة المصرية اليوم رسمياً رفضها المشاركة في الحوار الذي دعا إليه الرئيس محمد مرسي، عازيةً ذلك "لتجاهل" مطالبها. يأتي قرار المعارضة في الوقت الذي تواصلت فيه التظاهرات المعارضة لمرسي في ميدان التحرير في القاهرة وفي محيط القصر الرئاسي. واستجابةً لنداء المعارضة بدأ مئات المتظاهرين في التجمع في عدة نقاط ومساجد بالقاهرة للتوجه الى القصر الرئاسي، للتعبير عن رفض قرارات الرئيس في ما أطلق عليه "جمعة الكارت الأحمر".

المعارضة تؤكد مضيها قدماً في تحركاتها لتصحيح مسار الثورة

وأكدت جبهة الإنقاذ الوطني "رفض حضور الحوار الذي اقترحه رئيس الجمهورية، وذلك نظراً لافتقاره لأبجديات التفاوض الحقيقي والجاد وتجاهله لطرح المطالب الأساسية للجبهة المتمثلة بضرورة إلغاء الإعلان الدستوري بأكمله وإلغاء قرار الرئيس بالدعوة للإستفتاء على الدستور" في 15 كانون الاول/ديسمبر الحالي. هذا ورفض مرسي مساء أمس التراجع، متمسكاً بالإعلان الدستوري الذي منحه صلاحيات استثنائية وبتنظيم الاستفتاء على مشروع الدستور. وأكد مرسي أن "التظاهر السلمي حق مكفول بعيداً عن الاعتداءات المرفوضة".

في المقابل، قالت الجبهة المعارضة التي تضمّ قوى يسارية وليبرالية، إن خطاب مرسي "كان مدهشاً في انكاره" لسبب الصدامات الدامية الأربعاء في محيط القصر الرئاسي. وأكد البيان أن هذه الإشتباكات جاءت نتيجة "لتحريض واضح وصريح من قيادات جماعة الإخوان
المسلمين التي ينتمي اليها الرئيس ومن حزب الحرية والعدالة" المنبثق عنها. وأضافت الجبهة المعارضة "كما تجاهل الرئيس تماماً المطالب الواضحة التي كررتها الجبهة"، وأكد "تصميمه والجماعة التي ينتمي اليها على الدفع نحو استفتاء على دستور يعصف بحقوق وحريات المصريين ويؤسس لنظام استبدادي، دستور لا يحظى بتوافق المصريين ولم يشاركوا في صياغته".
واتهمت الجبهة مرسي بأنه "تعمد تقسيم المصريين ما بين مؤيد للشرعية هم اتباعه وانصاره، ومعارضيه الذين نعتهم بالبلطجية والخروج عن الشرعية وبذلك يؤكد الرئيس مرسي بأنه لا يتصرف كرئيس لكل المصريين بل كرئيس لفصيل سياسي واحد فقط". وأكدت المعارضة أنها مستمرة في "استخدام كل الوسائل المشروعة في الدفاع عن حقوقها وحرياتها وتصحيح مسار الثورة، من أجل بناء مصر تقوم على الحرية والعدالة الإجتماعية والكرامة الإنسانية".

القصر الرئاسي معسكرٌ محصن.. وائتلاف القوى الإسلامية يؤكد أنه يدافع عن الشرعية بالطرق السلمية

وبدا محيط القصر الرئاسي بضواحي القاهرة صباح اليوم أشبه بمعسكر محصن، حيث تمّ إغلاق كافة الطرق المؤدية إليه بالأسلاك الشائكة، تحت حراسة عدد كبير من الجنود وشرطة مكافحة الشغب وقوات الحرس الجمهوري. وفي رد على اتهامات المعارضة للإسلاميين ببدء العنف وبالهجوم على معتصمين سلميين أمام قصر الرئاسة، قال "ائتلاف القوى الإسلامية" في بيان "إن أبناء التيار الإسلامي خرجوا للدفاع عن الشرعية بطريقة حضارية سلمية، ولم يحملوا سلاحاً ولم يصوبوا رصاصاً ولم يلجأوا للعنف"، مضيفاً "أن شهداء التيار الإسلامي قد اغتالتهم اياد آثمة مأجورة حرضتها وموّلتها بعض الرموز التي لا تريد استقرار الوطن ولا تحرص على سلامته".
