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.
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 (...)
The Syrian Arab Army is preparing its attack plans to liberate the northwest of the country, that is to say the Idleb region where the defeated jihadists have taken refuge.
According to the leadership, most fighters would be ready to surrender, only 10,000 men would be ready to fight to the death.
However, according to the Syrian press, a Uyghur colony would have transformed the city of al-Zanbaki (just on the Turkish border) into an entrenched camp. We do not know much about what is (...)
In 2016, al-Qaeda established an Islamic Emirate that included the port of Mukalla, Yemen and 200 km of its neighbours’ coasts .
From Mukalla, which was established on the territory of a historical ancient Emirates, al-Qaeda controlled the exit of the Gulf of Aden. This allowed it to hold ships to ransom, collecting 2 million dollars worth of taxes per day.
Despite opposition from the people living there, Al Qaeda imposed its lifestyle by terror (just see the photo).
Finally, the (...)
Fresh evidence has been handed over to the judicial investigation that is being conducted in Paris, into LaFarge’s activities. The new evidence is that in Syria, Daesh had made requests to purchase cement and was ready to buy LaFarge’s factory so that it could continue to produce cement for itself.
We must not forget that the cement that LaFarge produced during the war against Syria, could only be used in the area occupied by the Jihadists and NATO and not the area controlled by the Syrian (...)
The Syrian Arab Army, supported by the Russian Air Force, is making progress in liberating Southern Syria from Daesh and Al Qaeda. This action follows through with para 5 of the Memorandum on De-escalation Zones `.
According to the United Nations, almost a third of the region’s population probably fled the fighting and gathered at Syria’s border with Jordan and Israel. Both borders are closed but humanitarian aid is allowed to pass.
The US and Israeli armed forces are making us think (...)
The US authorities gave prior notice to the “Opposition’s Armed Forces” in South Syria that it would not intervene during the attack of the Syrian Arab Army. This decision has stunned its allies. Yet there is no rational basis for their stupor: President Trump’s decision is simply following through with his anti-terrorist policy which he articulated a little more than a year ago, in his speech at Riyad .
The Syrian Forces, 40 000 men strong, emboldened by the support of the Russian Air (...)
I have the honour to refer to the letter dated 31 May 2018 addressed to me by the President of the Security Council for the month of May in an effort to continue constructive and collaborative dialogue with Myanmar in finding a durable solution to the humanitarian situation in Rakhine State. I have brought the matter to the attention of the leadership of the Government of Myanmar, as requested.
I am now taking the liberty of writing the present letter to update you on recent developments (...)
Several leaders of the Army of Islam (the jihadist group that was once set up in Eastern Ghouta), believe that the head of their organization, Mohammed Alloush, has fled after stealing 47 million dollars from the organization.
Mohammed Alloush (face on in the photo with Staffan de Mistura) is Zahran Alloush’s cousin. Zahran founded the jihadist group and died in December 2015. The head of the Alloush family was their grandfather, a Wahhabite preacher who had sought refuge in Saudi Arabia (...)
The Russian army has discovered an underground chemical laboratory set up in Douma in the area that the jihadists who had occupied the city, have now abandoned.
17 April 2018: Alexander Rodionov, an expert on chemical weapons, declared on Rossiya TV, that basic ingredients for chemical weapons such as thiodiglycol and diethanolamine, had been discovered in the lab. Importantly, such chemicals are used to manufacture mustard (...)
Thursday, 12 April 2018, morning: Eastern Ghouta has been completely liberated of jihadists.
The final liberation of the whole of Eastern Ghouta includes the city of Duma. This was under the control of jihadists of Yesh al-Islam (the Islamic Army) and was where the so-called White Helmets operate - a group that purports to defend civilians and which is funded by the UK.
In total, 165 000 persons – civilians and armed jihadists - have been evacuated, pursuant to agreements concluded by the (...)
Take a good look at this photo and observe closely the two men on the far left, one carrying the kalachnikov and the other with the headgear.
How do you tell a “moderate rebel” (sic) of Ghouta from one of the ordinary residents of Ghouta? All you need to do is contrast the good health and clothes of the first lot with the emaciated bodies and rags of the second lot.
The Syrian Arab Army has just discovered that Irbine, an area in the liberated Ghouta, holds stocks of foodstuffs and a (...)
On 30 March 2018, following President Macron’s meeting with a PYD delegation, the party of the Kurds in Syria, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan delivered a violent speech in which he issued a warning to France.
According to the Elysée, President Emmanuel Macron received a delegation from the DFS (Democratic Forces of Syria) . The DFS is a front behind which lies the PYD, the sister organization of the Turkish PKK.
According to the former Turkish Chief of Staff, General Ilker Basbug, the PKK (...)
On March 20, militants in the village of Ein Tarma in Eastern Ghouta, which is controlled by Faylaq al-Rahman (the al-Rahman Corps), launched rockets at the Kashkoul market in Jaramana, a suburb of Damascus with a mostly Christian and Druze population. According to the latest information, 37 people have been killed and another 35 wounded.
The Russian Centre for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides has reported that four attacks on Damascus originated from Eastern Ghouta that day. Four (...)
At noon on Tuesday, 20 March 2018, on the eve of Mother’s Day, armed terrorist gangs perpetrated a new horrific massacre against peaceful civilians in the Kashkul public market in Jaramana near the city of Damascus when they launched a deadly rocket at women and children from their positions in eastern Ghouta. That crime resulted the deaths of 44 civilians and injuries to dozens more, most of whom remain in critical condition. In addition, missiles of hate launched by the terrorists at (...)
A number of eyewitnesses have testified to Sana Agency that on 26 February 2018, two anti-Daesh Coalition’s helicopters landed at Twaimin, in the South-East of al-Shadadi. They took on board some of the Daesh officials that they were supposed to fight and transported them to the illegal US base of Sabah al-Kheir, 20 kilometres from Hassake.
Monday morning 19 March: three helicopters belonging to the US-led Coalition landed, in a location situated between the villages of Jissi and Calo, in (...)
The city of Damascus and the countryside to the East of the capital, East Ghouta, are the theatre for violent combats opposing Al-Qaïda (supported by the United Kingdom and France) and the Syrian Arab Army. The Republic is trying to deliver the population from seven years of occupation and charia. But the colonial powers do not agree.
A group of Daesh fighters was arrested on 8 February at Trinidad and Tobago while they were preparing a mega-attack during the night stretching from 13 to 14 February when the carnival was in full swing.
In Trinidad-and-Tobago there is a strong minority presence of Indian Muslims who arrived during the British colonization. Over time, Afro-Americans and Arabs have been added to the community.
This magnificent Caribbean island has equipped Daesh with several hundred combatants. It is the (...)
We, the Foreign Ministers and principals of the Global Coalition, have come together in Kuwait City united in our determination to defeat ISIS/Da’esh through a focused, sustained, multifaceted effort. We know our enemy: ISIS/Da’esh is intrinsically malevolent, celebrates cruelty, systematically violates international law and regularly commits gross abuses of human rights. Yet three and a half years into this effort, ISIS/Da’esh stands undeniably degraded – it has lost its territorial hold in (...)
The fall of the Caliphate and the scattering of the jihadists of Daesh open a new phase for recycling these troops. Perceived, according to each case, either as fanatical combatants or common psychopaths hiding behind an ideology, they are being courted by the States and multinationals who once employed them indirectly. Thierry Meyssan illustrates the setting for their second chance and issues a warning in face of the complacency shown by the Western powers concerning Daesh’s ideology – which in fact is the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The PYD stands for the Party for the Democratic Union (PYD). It is an anarchist Turkish party that was founded in Syria. It has just granted amnesty to 120 Daesh emirs and is integrating them into its armed wing, the YPG (Units to Protect the People). So revealed Vasily Nebenzia (photo), the Russian Federation’s ambassador to the UN.
Each of these 120 Isis emirs that has been granted amnesty has its own katiba (brigade). What this means is that the Kurdish PYD is not simply granting (...)
