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.
We, the Leaders of the G20, strongly condemn all terrorist attacks worldwide and stand united and firm in the fight against terrorism and its financing. These atrocious acts have strengthened our resolve to cooperate to enhance our security and protect our citizens. Terrorism is a global scourge that must be fought and terrorist safe havens eliminated in every part of the world.
We reaffirm that all measures on countering terrorism need to be implemented in accordance with the UN Charter (...)
On 30 June 2017 from the air base of Rayak, the Lebanese army carried out a “crackdown” operation in the Syrian refugee camps at al-Nour and Qariya (East Arsal). 5 kamikazes were exploded in an effort to make the army retreat. The jihadists have killed a young girl and injured seven soldiers. 350 people have been arrested.
This is the first operation of this type since war first broke out in Syria and the failure of a similar operation led by Al-Qaeda in August 2014 to take some soldiers (...)
The Military Chief of the Iraqi army has announced the forthcoming liberation of Mosul. The media, tightly muzzled by strict military censorship, emphasizes the captured ruins of the Al-Nouri Mosque where the Caliph, Abou Bakr al-Baghdadi, had announced his victory. This led Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi to the conclusion that essentially, Daesh was no more.
In actual fact, Daesh is a tool created by the former US National Director of Intelligence, John Negroponte, from armed groups (...)
The United Emirates has instituted a fine of 135, 000 euros and 15 years jail time for any message of sympathy expressed for Qatar which supports the Muslim Brotherhood.
This decision applies to any words expressed (even by telephone), and also to anyone wearing Barça’s football shirt, given just who its sponsor is.
The Global Islamic League which was established by Saudi Arabia at the request of the United Kingdom in 1962 to finance both the Muslim Brotherhood and the Order of Naqshbandi, has welcomed Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the Emirates publishing a list of terrorists.
On this list is Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, who is the star preacher of the Muslim Brotherhood. The League announced that he had been excluded from its Board of Directors.
Thierry Meyssan believes that in 2016, the League’s (...)
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Arab Republic of Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and the Kingdom of Bahrain are unified in their ongoing commitment to combatting terrorism, drying up the sources of its funding, countering extremist ideology and the tools of its dissemination and promotion, and to working together to defeat terrorism and protect all societies from its impact.
The continuous and ongoing violations of the Authorities in Doha of Qatar’s commitments and obligations, enshrined (...)
The way in which the Syrian Arab Army (which is the Syrian Republic’s army, and sometimes referred to as “AAS”) and the Syrian Defense forces (which consists of the Kurds supported by Washington, also referred to as “FDS”) have deployed their forces to liberate Raqqa from Daesh shows that their efforts are clearly coordinated.
Technically speaking, it would be very dangerous if the air forces of both the Coalition and the Syrian Arab Republic bomb Raqqa at the same time without coordinating (...)
On Wednesday 7 June 2017, the jihadists made a two-pronged attack, making an assault on the Iranian Parliament as well as the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini (situated outside the capital in the cemetery of the martyrs). A third team appears to have been neutralized before its acidic nature could spill into action in another place, symbolic of Teheran.
Two assailants blew themselves up at parliament while another two committed the same act at the mausoleum.
This operation is unprecedented and (...)
Asharq Al-Awsat, the Pan-Arab daily edited in London, has revealed that the leaders of Al-Qaeda and Daesh are currently negotiating in Iraq for their coming together as one entity.
According to the daily, the merger would be effected through the creation of a third organization to which the fighters of the existing organizations would gradually be transferred.
Asharq Al-Awsat is owned by the son of King Salman of Saudi Arabia.
A radical shake up of alliances is taking place across the (...)
The British police has revealed the names of the three persons that carried out the London terrorist attack on 3 June 2017. They were Youssef Zaghba, Khuram Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane (see photo).
Youssef Zaghba was a dual citizen of Italy and Morocco. He had been placed under surveillance in Italy ever since he was arrested at Marconi airport, Bologna, taking a one-way flight to Istanbul . Upon being arrested, he had declared to the police officers: “I am leaving to become a (...)
While President Trump seems to have sorted out his problems of interior authority - more or less - the conflict has now moved on to concern NATO. Washington is currently speaking against the manipulation of terrorism, while London has no intention of giving up such a useful tool for the extension of its influence. The Bilderberg Group, initially organised as a sounding board for the Alliance, has just been the stage for a difficult debate between the partisans and the adversaries of imperialism in the Middle East.
Last night, our country fell victim to a brutal terrorist attack once again. As a result I have just chaired a meeting of the government’s emergency committee and I want to update you with the latest information about the attack.
Shortly before 10:10 yesterday evening, the Metropolitan Police received reports that a white van had struck pedestrians on London Bridge. It continued to drive from London Bridge to Borough Market, where 3 terrorists left the van and attacked innocent and unarmed (...)
The Badr Brigades have entered Syria.
This Iraqi Shiite Militia consists of between 30,000 and 50,000 men. It is trained by the Iranian Guards of the Revolution.
Its slogan is: “The security of Iraq will not be possible if Syria’s security is preserved”.
The Iranian President could recall its troops deployed in Syria.
A total reorganization of alliances is under way in the Middle (...)
On Monday 5 June 2017, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the Arab Emirates announced that they were cutting diplomatic ties with Qatar with immediate effect, while the Joint Arab Force engaged in Yemen has excluded Qatar from its ranks.
Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the Arab Emirates have prohibited all land, sea and air contact with Qatar which renders the air hub at Doha, for the most part, unworkable.
Qatari diplomats have 48 hours to leave these four countries.
Here we have the most (...)
According to the Wall Street Journal, for at least seven months, France and Belgium have been contracting out to third parties the murders of some of their nationals who have joined Daesh.
The daily claims that Paris and Brussels have provided Bagdad with a list of “priority” targets. The Fate meted out to those on this list is as follows: they will either be arrested by the Iraqi army, in which case, they will be sentenced to death and executed or they will be killed during combat. (...)
We would like to draw attention to reports, which are received regularly, of “unidentified” aircraft that have been seen providing support to local ISIS militants in various parts of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (IRA).
In particular, this month, according to Jowzjan Province authorities, unmarked aircraft were spotted air-dropping consignments of weapons and other supplies to ISIS groups in at least three northern provinces of Afghanistan (Jowzjan, Faryab and Sar-e Pol).
Thierry Meyssan observes the actions that President Trump is taking to convince his allies and partners to drop the jihadists that they support, arm, and supervise. Contrary to the picture painted by the international Press and its political adversaries, for the last four months, the White House has been pursuing an anti-imperialist policy which is beginning to bear fruit: the process of the cessation of Saudi support for the Muslim Brotherhood, the end of the coordination of the jihadists by NATO, and the process of the cessation of Western financing of the Muslim Brotherhood.
1. We, the Leaders of the G7, stand united in expressing our deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims of the brutal terrorist act in Manchester in the United Kingdom. We condemn in the strongest possible terms terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
2. Countering terrorism and violent extremism, acts of which have struck G7 Members, as well as all regions of the world, regardless of country, nationality or belief, remains a major priority for the G7. We stand (...)
According to Scotland Yard, the attack on the crowd leaving the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena, 22 May, has been perpetrated by Salman Abedi. A bankcard has been conveniently found in the pocket of the mutilated corpse of the ‘terrorist’.
This attack is generally interpreted as proof that the United Kingdom is not implicated in international terrorism and that, on the contrary, it is a victim of it.
Salman Abedi was born in the UK of a family of Libyan immigrants. He has (...)
Thank you very much, Secretary General Stoltenberg. Chancellor Merkel, thank you very much. Other heads of state and government, I am honored to be here with members of an alliance that has promoted safety and peace across the world.
Prime Minister May, all of the nations here today grieve with you and stand with you. I would like to ask that we now observe a moment of silence for the victims and families of the savage attack which took place in Manchester. (A moment of silence is (...)

Contrary to what Western Press agencies are reporting and President Obama’s delivery in Egypt eight years ago, President Donald Trump did not deliver a speech on Islam during his trip to Saudi Arabia.
Recalling that his voyage which began in Saudi Arabia, the land of Islam’s holy places and would continue to Jerusalem, Bethlehem and the Vatican. He has called for the practice of tolerance and respect between the three religions of Abraham.
Focusing his discussion on the fight against (...)
In a letter addressed to 12,000 officers of the Indian Air Force’s Army, the Air Force’s Chief Marshal, Birender Singh Dhanoa, asked them to get ready for new operations for which very little notice would be given.
General Dhanoa made explicit reference to a terrorist threat to Jammu and Kashmir.
We have recently indicated that numerous members of Daesh are leaving Syria for Kashmir via Pakistan.
There have only been two occasions in the past where Superior Indian officers have addressed a (...)
I want to thank King Salman for his extraordinary words, and the magnificent Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for hosting today’s summit. I am honored to be received by such gracious hosts. I have always heard about the splendor of your country and the kindness of your citizens, but words do not do justice to the grandeur of this remarkable place and the incredible hospitality you have shown us from the moment we arrived.
You also hosted me in the treasured home of King Abdulaziz, the founder of the (...)
Telesur: Thank you for receiving us, Mr President.
Bashar al-Assad: I welcome your team and Channel Telesur to Syria.
Telesur: Let me get straight to the most recent event. Russia warns that the terrorists could be preparing alleged chemical attacks. What precaution is Syria taking to avoid this?
Bashar al-Assad: First, terrorists, for [many] years, on more than one occasion and in more than one region throughout Syria had deployed chemical substances. This is why we had asked the (...)
France has just become the victim of a new terrorist attack, three days before the first round of her Presidential election. For Thierry Meyssan, Paris needs to stop talking rubbish and realise the importance of what this means. International terrorism, in which France herself participates, is commanded and used – even against her – by certain of her NATO allies.
On 13 April 2017, the European Court of Human Rights ruled on the Beslan hostage-taking which took place in 2004. It condemned the Russian Federation .
The Court had to rule on several different grievances from associations of the victims’ families.
The Court held that Russia violated article 2 (safeguarding human rights) of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) for the following reasons:
Russia could have prevented the hostage-taking as it had been given three hours’ prior (...)
Why Is Trump Fighting ISIS In Syria?
The Trump Foreign policy team has been all over the map on what to do next in Syria — topple the regime, intensify aid to rebels, respond to any new attacks on innocent civilians. But when pressed, there is one idea everyone on the team seems to agree on: “The defeat of ISIS,” as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson put it.
Well, let me add to their confusion by asking just one question: Why?
Why should our goal right now be to defeat the Islamic State in (...)
