Global war on "terrorism"
In 1980s, the United States and Israel created the concept of "international terrorism" to discredit the national liberation movements, accusing them of being tentacles of the Soviet beast. After the September 11 attacks, responsibility for quashing terrorism was taken away from the police and shifted to the military domain. For the Anglo-American ruling class, the "war against terrorism" had been envisaged as a means of affirming its control over trade routes (free maritime and air circulation), but it served the Bush administration and the Zionist movement to cloak their mistimed colonial adventures (Palestine, Afghanistan, Irak).
The same concept is used by the West to justify the setting up of an Orwellian surveillance society and by the Shangai Cooperation Organisation (Russia, China) to stymie the intrusion of the nomadic populations of Central Asia and to stabilise them by force.
According to Reuters, the CIA has frozen all aid to Syrian “rebels” even though they risk being attacked by the “jihadists” .
Up until now, Nato members were drawing a distinction between “rebels” and “jihadists”. Occasionally, they would dichotomize “moderates” and “extremists”. But in actual fact, the “moderate rebels” have never been less violent that the “extremist jihadists”. Thus in a video, a tool of propaganda, you see the Commander of a “moderate” organization, the Free Syrian Army devouring (...)
Since the beginning of the negotiations in Astana, Turkey has been trying to save the jihadists in Syria. And so we witness the dissolution of the groups composed of foreign mercenaries [and their incorporation] into a new structure, Hayat Tahrir al-Cham (the Assembly for the Liberation of the Levant).
While controlled by Al-Qaeda, this new group differs from its predecessors in that the person in command is a Syrian: Abou Jaber Hashem Al-Cheikh (see photo). In 2005, this war-chief appears (...)
On Sunday 19 February, Daesh [released] a video, declaring its intention to exterminate all Christians in Egypt.
On 11 December 2016, an attack on the Copt cathedral, Saint-Marc, had caused the death of 28 believers. The alleged kamikaze pilot, Abu Abdallah al-Masri (see photo), appeared in Daesh’s video.
Going forward, the Copts will form the most important Christian community in the Middle (...)
The CIA’s new director, Mike Pompeo, has arrived in Turkey. He was welcomed at Esenboga airport (Ankara) by representatives from the US embassy.
He has met his Turkish counterpart, Hakan Fidan, and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Turkey had hoped to secure from the US the end of its support for the Syrian Kurds, even perhaps some help to fight them, as well as the extradition of Fehtullah Gülen. [For its part] the United States was hoping to define the parameters for fighting both Daesh and (...)
Following the meeting at Astana during which Turkey’s position became closer to the positions taken by Russia and Iran, and the meeting at Moscow during which pro-Turkish opposition engaged in discussions with the republican opposition, an internal war is unfolding among armed groups.
In this context, Al-Qaeda has reorganized its forces and announced that Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (the Assembly for the Liberation of the Levant) has been established.
This new denomination is an umbrella (...)

On 30 September 2016, The New York Times published extracts of an audio recording of a conversation between the Secretary of State, John Kerry and members of the Syrian “opposition” . The conversation took place on 22 September 2016, at the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. We hear him berating the US Congress for refusing to send men to bring down the Syrian Arab Republic and advising the opposition to find another military power to take over from the US and to bring it to power.
On instructions from my Government, I wish to transmit the following information:
The armed terrorist groups that some refer to as “moderate” proved unwilling to bid farewell to the old year without carrying out one more horrific crime. On 24 December 2016, the terrorist Nusrah Front and its criminal gangs positioned in the Wadi Barada and Fijah areas of Rif Dimashq blew up the principal water main connecting the Fijah spring to Damascus. Not content with that action, the terrorists (...)
The Jihadists, who since 24 December 2016 have been polluting the sources of Barada — the river which provides the water supply for the inhabitants (now totalling more than 7 million) of Damascus and the region, - and that have exploded its canalization, have published a declaration laying down their conditions.
Currently, 5.6 million civilians have been completely cut off from running water for more than two weeks. The authorities have managed to harness lorries with tanks to supply the (...)
Several pieces of information are coming to light on the attack that took place on 1 January 2017, in an Istanbul nightclub. Meanwhile the Turkish government has imposed a blanket ban on the local press, prohibiting them from covering this story without first obtaining permission.
The attack resulted in 39 dead and 69 injured.
The target was the nightclub Reina, the hotspot for the Christian Orthodox bourgeoisie in Europe (that is, on the European side of the Bosphorus).
Contrary to (...)
A year ago Italy had arrested several Kosovans with ties to Daesh. [And now] Italy has sounded the alert. Lavdrim Muhaxheri would be returning to Europe with several of his men including Ridvan Haqifi.
Muhaxheri is a young Kosavarian, 27 years old who worked for Nato in Kosovo, then for a “private military campaign”, a Nato sub-contract, in Afghanistan and Iraq. Imam Zekerija Qazimi would have recruited him at Kosovo and then he would have joined the Islamic Emirates in Iraq when this (...)
Statement on establishing the ceasefire regime in the Syrian Arab Republic
With a view to fostering the necessary conditions for establishing a direct political dialogue among all conflicting parties in the Syrian Arab Republic, as well as reducing violence, preventing casualties among civilians and providing unhindered humanitarian access, the Russian Federation, guided by the provisions of Security Council resolution 2254 (2015), proposes to establish a ceasefire regime (...)
Voltaire Network — a cease-fire agreement has been concluded in Syria. So announced the Russian president, Vladamir Putin, in the presence of his Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Defense . Russia and Turkey are its guarantors. The Islamic Republic of Iran participated in drawing up the agreement but is [now] staying quietly in the background.
Three documents have been signed by the Arab Syrian Republic and seven rebel groups representing more than 60,000 jihadists:
1. Faylaq al-Sham (...)
Vladimir Putin: Colleagues,
The news has just come in that this morning, a few hours ago, an event that we not just long since hoped for but also worked hard for has taken place. Three documents have been signed. The first is an agreement between the Syrian government and the armed opposition on a ceasefire on the Syrian Arab Republic’s territory. The second document agrees a series of measures to monitor the ceasefire. The third document is a statement of readiness to start peace talks on (...)
On 19 December 2016, the jihadists of Ahrar al-Sham (Islamic Movement of the free people of Sham) — the leading group of “moderates” (read as: “moderately anti-imperialist”) — rejected merging with Fateh al-Sham (Front for the Conquest of Sham) during a meeting of their Council.
This Council convened just before East Aleppo was liberated which represents a major defeat for Ahrar al-Sham.
Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, formally known as Al-Nusra, is the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda.
In the photo above, the (...)
During a press conference on 27 December 2016, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan declared, that going forward, his country had to deal with three terrorist organizations all at the same time: Daesh, the PKK (Kurds) and the FETÖ (Fethullah Gülen).
« The [Westerners] accuse us of supporting Daesh. But now they are the ones that are supporting terrorist groups such as Daesh and the YPG [Kurds]. It is abundantly clear. We have evidence in the form of photos and videos to confirm this», he specified. (...)
For Manlio Dinucci, the Western media’s coverage of the Berlin attack, as well as the wars in Libya and Syria, does not overly concern itself with established facts. What is happening is what the novelist George Orwell called “The Ministry of Truth”. Current affairs are broken up into small sequences, disconnected from each other so that they cannot be understood. This enables our governments to conceal their crimes.
The liberation of East Aleppo marks the end of the attempt to overthrow the Syrian Arab Republic. It was only possible because of the abandon of Qatar and the partial change of position of Turkey. However, part of Syria is still occupied by jihadists in the service of NATO. The next military victories and the end of the war therefore depend on the secret negotiations which have just begun between the members of the Atlantic Alliance.
On 19 December, the Russian Ambassador to Ankara, Andreї Karlov, was assassinated when opening an exhibition focusing on how Russians see Turkey.
The man who fired at the ambassador (see photo), a policeman, had time to cry out « Allah Akbar ! » and « Vengeance for Aleppo ! » before being gunned down by other policemen and bodyguards.
The ambassador —a close friend of Vladimir Putin— was driven to hospital but it was not long before his injuries got the better of (...)
Voltaire Network— Jihadists at East Aleppo have been authorized to choose between heading towards Idleb (Al-Qaïda) or Rakka (Daesh), or being taken as prisoners. They were taken to [their preferred destination] by bus under the protection of Syria and Russia and in the presence of UN representatives.
Some of them tried to flee by mingling among the civilian population. When 120,000 inhabitants were being registered, the Intelligence Services managed to identify them and to arrest more than (...)
On Sunday 11 December 2016, Cairo’s Saint-Peter and Saint Paul Church was bombed leaving 23 people dead and [another] fifty seriously injured.
Egypt has decreed three days of national mourning.
Under the presidency of the Muslim Brother Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood was at complete liberty to ransack a number of churches and the palaces of bishops. They even went as far as to [participate] in several lynchings. But after they were toppled, President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi undertook (...)
Once again, Daesh has seized Palmyra following a surprise attack in the period 9 - 12 December 2016.
The “High Representative” of the “Syrian Opposition”, Riad Hijab, has denounced the forces of the Syrian “regime” who pounce on “unarmed civilians” at Aleppo but “jump ship like rats when confronted by the jihadists of the Islamic State at Palmyra.” The reality is a very different story.
In a synchronized [manoeuvre], 5,000 jihadists arrived at Rakka and Mosul to catch in a vice, the thousands of (...)
Thank you so much! (Applause.) Thank you. Thank you so much, everybody. Thank you. Everybody, please have a seat. Have a seat. Well, thank you so much.
Good afternoon, everybody. I was just told that was going to be the last "Hail to the Chief" on the road, and it got me kind of sentimental. I want to first and foremost say thanks to all of you. Just before I came here, I was able to visit with some of the men and women from MacDill Air Force Base, Central Command, our Special (...)
On 15 November 2016, the House of Representatives adopted, in the most discretionary manner, the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act of 2016 (H.R.5732).
The law takes its name from the code name of the person presenting himself as the “photographer of the Syrian Arab Army” who took shots of the thousands of citizens that would have died under torture.
The text which has been presented with bi-partisan support by twelve parliamentarians, is the initiative of Elliot Engel, the traditional (...)
The Supreme Military Council of the Army of Conquest has put a bloody end to the demonstrations of 17 and 18 November 2016 in East Aleppo.
The Syrian inhabitants were protesting against the decision by the Supreme Military Council to forbid them to leave the city. The Coucil answered them with live ammunition. According to the spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defence, Igor Konachenkov, during the first demonstration - «17 people, including two adolescents of 13 and 15 years old, were (...)
While the forces of the «Global Coalition against the Islamic State» are attacking Mosul, more than 14,000 inhabitants have fled the city in the direction of Rakka and Idleb in Syria.
This is the first time that we have seen a displacement of the population in the direction of zones controlled by the jihadists.
Daesh is an Iraqi product. During the planning of the interdiction of the «Silk Road», the CIA had decided to add, to the 50,000 jihadists of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, (...)
The Supreme Military Council of the Army of Conquest which controls East Aleppo has published the following fatwa -
Declaration to the patient citizens of Aleppo
Praise be to Allah, who, by his support, has glorified his worshippers, and who, by his power, has humiliated the enemies of Islam. Peace be to our Master and Final Prophet Mahomet, and to his family and to his companions, until the day of the last judgement.
The High Command of the Army of Conquest is fully aware of the (...)
1. The Small Group of the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL (Da’esh) met today in Berlin at the invitation of Ambassador Sabine Sparwasser of the Federal Republic of Germany and U.S. Special Presidential Envoy Brett McGurk to review the progress of our collective effort to liberate Mosul and to build momentum towards the isolation and liberation of Raqqa. These are essential milestones in our campaign to put Da’esh on a path to lasting defeat. We also used this opportunity to focus more (...)
