Sharon and a Nobel prize for nonsense By Alan Hart

14 January 2014 — Alan Hart

Until recently I thought Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu had no rivals in the business of talking propaganda nonsense (Israel’s Jews in danger of annihilation etcetera, etcetera, etcetera).

Syria Countdown: an Update from Damascus By Franklin Lamb

3 September 2013 — Greanville Post

Aftermath of Israeli strike. Naturally no one in the American establishment criticizes Israel for general banditry in its foreign policy

Aftermath of Israeli strike. Naturally no one in the American establishment criticizes Israel for warmongering and general banditry in its foreign policy. In a powder keg of a region, Israel is the permanently lit fuse.

Washington’s ill-considered criminal attack will aid and abet these largely Gulf financed militia and provide justification, in their minds for literally hundreds of often competing jihadist groups to spread carnage across Syria.

Syria: U.S threats intended to cover the losses of Bandar bin Sultan By Wassim Raad

26 August 2013 — Voltaire Network

The new case of chemical weapons caused by the coalition of Western powers, Israel, retrograde Gulf monarchies, and executed by takfirist movements has fizzled because of the vigilance of the Syrian-Russian-Iranian alliance. Russian satellites are very active over Syria and the information gathered by the Syrian military command shows that the “chemical film” aims to serve as a pretext for aggression against Syria, to compensate for losses suffered by terrorist gangs sent from Jordan.
