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.
Contrary to popular belief, Rojava is not a state for the Kurdish people, but a French fantasy of the interwar period. The aim was to create a rump state with Kurds equivalent to Greater Israel, which was being considered with Jews. This colonial objective was reactivated by Presidents Sarkozy, Hollande and Macron including the ethnic cleansing of the region intended to host it.
The YPG (People’s Protection Units) portray themselves as a Syrian political organization linked to the Turkish PKK. However, the majority of its leaders are not Syrian, but Turkish, suggesting that the YPG are, in fact, the Syrian branch of the PKK.
During the Cold War, the PKK was a revolutionary party, with ties to the Soviet Union. It spearheaded an armed struggle against the Turkish dictatorship for the recognition of Kurdish culture. However, the PKK started to fall apart after its (...)
As at 6 October 2019, Kurdish mercenaries in "Rojava" were guarding, on behalf of the United States, seven detention camps for captured Daesh combatants, plus eight different camps for their wives and children.
According to YPG sources, the camps contained 14,800 jihadi fighters and several hundred thousand civilians related to them.
Today, we can reveal that the Syrian secret services had asked foreign countries concerned to take back their jihadi nationals made prisoners by the Syrian (...)
The ultimate goal of Operation Peace Spring, launched on October 9, 2019 in the face of multi-dimensional terror threats emanating from Syria against our national security, is to ensure the security of our borders, to neutralize terrorists in the region and to save the Syrian people from the oppression of terrorists.
In spite of this, some countries and circles voiced a number of allegations and comments, which were also reflected in various international media outlets.
The Operation is (...)
Today, President Donald J. Trump spoke with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey by telephone. Turkey will soon be moving forward with its long-planned operation into Northern Syria. The United States Armed Forces will not support or be involved in the operation, and United States forces, having defeated the ISIS territorial “Caliphate,” will no longer be in the immediate area.
The United States Government has pressed France, Germany, and other European nations, from which many captured (...)
On September 3, Russia marks the Day of Solidarity in the Fight Against Terrorism. People around the country commemorate the victims of terrorist attacks, including law enforcement officers who died during counterterrorist operations and on duty.
This commemorative date was established following the tragic events that occurred in September 2004, when 334 people, mostly children, died in a terrorist attack on a school in Beslan.
It is important to remember that terrorism is an (...)

We commend Paraguay for designating Hizballah, al-Qa’ida, ISIS, and Hamas as terrorist organizations. This important step will help cut off the ability of these groups to plot terrorist attacks and to raise money around the world, including in the Western Hemisphere.
The world is increasingly recognizing Hizballah for what it is – not a defender of Lebanon as it purports to be, but a terrorist organization dedicated to advancing Iran’s malicious agenda. Like (...)
G20 OSAKA LEADERS’ STATEMENT ON PREVENTING EXPLOITATION OF THE INTERNET FOR TERRORISM AND VIOLENT EXTREMISM CONDUCIVE TO TERRORISM (VECT)
As leaders, one of our greatest responsibilties is to ensure the security of our citizens. It is the state’s role, first and foremost, to prevent and combat terrorism. Here in Osaka, we reaffirm our commitment to act to protect our people from terrorist and VECT exploitation of the internet. We issue this statement to raise the bar of expectation for (...)
Sri Lankan police have arrested a Wahhabi preacher, Mohamed Aliyar, director of the Islamic Guidance Center in Kattankudy, a Muslim-dominated Eastern city.
He would be related to Zahran Hashim, the leader of the operation led by Daesh at Easter, which claimed the lives of nearly 270 people and injured more than 500.
The Islamic Guidance Center, which was attended by the local Daesh leader, is funded by donations from Mohamed Aliyar’s Islamic classmates in Riyadh.
The Hezbollah-based (...)
The United States continues its attempts to exert sanctions pressure on Russia in a belief that it is possible to gain something from the Russian side in this way. Meanwhile, Washington merely presents itself in an unfavourable light by introducing arbitrary sanctions against the National Guard’s Terek special rapid response unit and a number of Russian individuals.
The unit deployed in the Chechen Republic is famous for its achievements in fighting terrorist groups. Its members constantly (...)
Although there is no longer any reason for the jihadists to split themselves between Al-Qaïda and Daesh, the two organisations continue their war in the Greater Middle East. Paradoxically, it is now Al-Qaïda which runs a pseudo-State, the governorate of Idlib, and Daesh which organises attacks far from the battle-fields, in the Congo and Sri Lanka.
An Iraqi court sentenced to death the Belgian citizen Bilal Abdoul-Aziz al-Marshouhi (aka "Abou Fadhil al-Belgiqi") for his membership of the Islamic Emirate terrorist organization (Daesh is known in the West as Islamic State or by its English acronym, ISIS).
"I was born in Belgium and have Belgian nationality, despite my Moroccan origins (...) I studied engineering at the University of Antwerp. I became a jihadist after becoming friends with someone who read books that preached radical (...)
According to the Sunday Times, several consecutive British governments deliberately allowed a criminal network to embezzle 8 billion pounds sterling to finance the jihad.
The Sunday Times claims that MI5 (the British internal security service) was unaware of these activities, but does not say who protected those funding the terrorist activity.
This information confirms the investigative revelations of the French journalist Thierry Meyssan regarding the support which the United Kingdom (...)
The State Department intends to designate as a Foreign Terrorist Organization the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in its entirety, including the Qods Force.
This is a historic step to counter Iran-backed terrorism around the world.
On April 15, the IRGC will be added to the State Department’s FTO list, which includes 67 other terrorist organizations including Hizballah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Kata’ib Hizballah, and al-Ashtar Brigades.
The IRGC FTO designation highlights (...)
Terrorism is the common enemy of humanity, and the target of joint action by the international community. Terrorist forces, by means of violence, sabotage and intimidation, pose a serious threat to world peace and security by scorning human rights, slaughtering innocent people, endangering public security, and creating fear and panic in society. The infiltration and spread of extremism is a hotbed for violence and terror, constituting a direct threat to human rights. The Chinese (...)
On February 14, a terrorist attack killed 40 members of the Indian police force in Pulwama. It was claimed by Jaish-e-Mohammed, the jihadist group that attacked the Indian Parliament in 2001 and tried to assassinate the Pakistani president in 2003. In retaliation, India bombed what it considers to be the seat of the organization in Pakistan. JeM is activated whenever Indo-Pakistan relations improve. For Great game India, the Indian bombardment seems to be a false operation without victims; which seems to confirm the release by Pakistan of an Indian pilot shot.
The House of Lords has adopted an amendment to anti-terrorist legislation passed in 2000. The effect of the amendment: every part of Hezbollah without exception will be deemed a terrorist organization. This text will enter into force on 1 March 2019 at midnight.
Hezbollah is a Lebanese network that is resisting Israeli invasion. Previously it was armed by Syria but since 2005 it has been armed by Iran.
Today Hezbollah holds a third of the seats in the Lebanese Parliament and three (...)
On 14 February 2019, a suicide terror attack was conducted by a Pak based terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammad, leading to the martyrdom of 40 brave jawans of the CRPF. JeM has been active in Pakistan for the last two decades, and is led by MASOOD AZHAR with its headquarters in Bahawalpur.
This organization, which is proscribed by the UN, has been responsible of a series of terrorist attacks including on the Indian Parliament in December 2001 and the Pathankot airbase in January 2016. (...)
The Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed ben Salman, travelled to China on an official visit. The purpose: to contribute his support to China’s anti-terrorism policy.
The Crown Prince’s trip is taking place just as Turkey issues a declaration denouncing the repression that China is applying, according to Ankara, against the Uigur people, a people of Turkish language and Muslim religion. At the same time, China has just started a biometric censure in the region of Xinjiang, where the majority of the (...)
While Turkey has fostered economic links with China in order to solve its economic crisis, it has also publicly denounced the repression of the Uyghurs, basing its accusations on false information. Beijing sent a very cold reply. Everything is happening, now that Daesh has disappeared from Iraq and Syria, as if Ankara was once again running secret operations on behalf of the CIA, this time in Xinjiang.
The virtual currency, Bitcoin, offers you the assurance that noone will know about your transaction. That is Bitcoin’s key sales pitch.
But the Israeli company Whitestream now claims to have collected the identity of everyone involved in Bitcoin transactions with Hamas (read: with the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood).
Of course this information has already been passed on to the Israeli Security Services, which in turn have handed it over to their partners in the (...)
After having taken back from Daesh the State they had promised, straddling parts of Iraq and Syria, the United States now intend to recuperate some of their mercenaries in order to make use of them in a different manner. National Security Advisor John Bolton has designed new goals, new partners and new methods. Since this new system is secret, we know about it only insofar as parts of the plan have already been implemented. Thierry Meyssan explores this world of violence.
President Trump made the right call to withdraw from Syria. The United States withdrawal, however, must be planned carefully and performed in cooperation with the right partners to protect the interests of the United States, the international community and the Syrian people. Turkey, which has NATO’s second largest standing army, is the only country with the power and commitment to perform that task.
In 2016, Turkey became the first country to deploy ground combat troops to fight the (...)
On 13 November 2018, Western Governments launched, a campaign in the UN Council of Human Rights in support of Chinese Islamists, some of whom had been preventively interned in brain washing/mind-set adjusting camps.
2010 – 2011 saw the start of the Nato Operations aimed at putting the Muslim Brotherhood into power in all Arab States. The People’s China – just like some Western countries — facilitated the departure of its Islamists to the Middle East. China thought quite wrongly that this would (...)
On 7 November 2018, Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Sergey Lavrov, slammed the way in which the Anglo Saxons are manipulating the concept of anti-terrorism.
According to the Minister, the new concept of the “fight against oppressive extremism” aims at validating terrorist acts when they are aligned with the Anglo-Saxon strategy against governments that the West qualifies as “authoritarian”.
Mr Lavrov recalled that each state is responsible, according to its laws, for how it fights (...)
Over the past two days I have been very pleased to have my first visit to Ankara since assuming my position as U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs. During this visit I met with a number of high-level Turkish government officials, business leaders, and members of Parliament and exchanged views on issues of mutual interest and concern.
The United States values its counterterrorism cooperation with our NATO Ally Turkey. As part of my visit, I am (...)
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Thank you very much. (Applause.) That’s fantastic. Thank you. Please be seated. Thank you very much. A lot of spirit in this room. (Laughter.) A lot of spirit. For good reason.
We’re gathered together on this solemn occasion to fulfill our most reverent and sacred duty. Thirty-five years ago, 241 American service members were murdered in the terrorist attack on our Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon. It was a very sad period of time. These are great, (...)
While the new US anti-terrorist strategy doesn’t change much in terms of the fight itself, it operates a profound modification of the working rules of the Pentagon and the Secretariat of Homeland Security. It is not so much a rationalisation of what has been developed since 2001, but more a redefinition of the missions of the federal State.
Up till now, the presence of jihadists intermingled in the outpouring migrants entering the EU Union through Greece, has been anecdotal. The alert has just been set off of a more massive arrival.
Following the signature of the agreement reached between Russia and Turkey at Sotchi, the Turkish CIA (Millî İstihbarat Teşkilatı) has smuggled more than a thousand fighters belonging to al Qaeda and Daesh out of Idleb.
The Greek police has detected at least 120 jihadists among the new immigrants. (...)
As your President, I am committed to protecting the United States and its interests abroad from the threat of terrorism. The National Strategy for Counterterrorism that I approved today will help protect our great Nation, enhance our national security, and guide our continued effort to defeat terrorists and terrorist organizations that threaten the United States.
Under my leadership, the United States has accelerated efforts to defeat terrorists. Working with coalition partners, we have (...)
