Retired Iranian general killed during fight with Sunni militants in Aleppo

Special to WorldTribune.com

Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty

Iranian state media reports say a retired Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) general has been killed while battling against Islamic militants in northern Syria.

Aleppo, Syria.
Aleppo, Syria.

The Fars news agency, which is closely affiliated with the IRGC, reported on Aug. 31 that Gen. Ahmad Gholami was killed on Aug. 30 while fighting against Sunni militants in Aleppo.

The report did not specify whether Gholami was killed by Islamic State militants or U.S.-backed Sunni rebels who are fighting against forces of Iranian-backed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

The report described Gholami as a “volunteer” who was serving in Syria as a “military adviser” to Syrian government forces.

Tehran denies that any of its professional soldiers are active in Syria, insisting its commanders and generals there act purely as volunteer military advisers.

Iranian media has previously reported that “hundreds” of “military advisers” and “volunteers” from Iran have been killed in Syria in recent years.

Re: Israeli bulldozers raid refugee camp in Gaza

Israeli bulldozers raided Al-Bureij refugee camp and levelled land in the central Gaza Strip district of Deir Al-Balah this morning.

Witnesses told Ma’an that four Israeli bulldozers crossed into the Gaza Strip from Israel and raided the eastern side of the camp as Israeli drones flew overhead.

Witnesses added that Israeli soldiers randomly opened fire, though no injuries were reported.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an they were looking into reports of the incident.

The Israeli army regularly open fires on Palestinian fisherman and farmers along the border areas, despite a ceasefire agreement that ended the 2014 war.

The UN documented 45 Israeli military incursions in to the Gaza Strip by Israeli forces this year up to 22 August.

Re: Why the Chakrabarti report is being attacked

Earlier in August, Shami Chakrabarti and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn were accused by anti-Palestinian campaigners of causing a “whitewash for peerages” scandal.

The charge came from the Board of Deputies of British Jews, which is an organization that campaigns along reactionary “Israel, right or wrong” lines.

Corbyn had at the end of April tasked Chakrabarti, a well-respected civil liberties campaigner and lawyer, with leading an inquiry into allegations of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party. She delivered her report at the end of June, and it was initially well received, despite some ridiculous nonsense at the launch event cooked by buy the hostile media.

At the end of August, Chakrabarti was nominated by Corbyn for a peerage so that she could enter the House of Lords. The Labour leader, who says as prime minister he would replace the Lords with an elected chamber, nominated no one else.

The allegations of anti-Semitism that have dogged Labour since February were, in fact, almost entirely fabricated or exaggerated. The campaign was begun, led and encouraged by the right-wing of the Labour Party working in concert with pro-Israel propaganda groups within the party. The campaign was cynically concocted as a way of attacking and smearing Corbyn and other Palestine solidarity activists within Labour, and of pushing back against the left-wing upsurge that brought Corbyn to power.

The Chakrabarti Inquiry was an attempt to defuse the entirely manufacture “crisis” within the party over “anti-Semitism.” By and large, it worked. And the reason it worked is that the  Chakrabarti report is a serious and sober piece of work which had one overriding principle: dealing with the facts and addressing the evidence – as you would expect from a lawyer of good repute.

Even some of the mostly strongly anti-Palestinian groups, such as the Jewish Labour Movement, and the Board of Deputies, at first grudgingly welcomed the report and its recommendations. They knew it was bullet proof in factual terms, so they would look ridiculous calling it a “whitewash” (although that didn’t stop some of the more extreme Zionist fanatics predicting as much even before publication).

But now the Board has changed its tune, accusing the Chakrabarti report of being a “whitewash” (even though they had earlier welcomed “aspects” of it) in exchange for elevating Chakrabarti to the House of Lords. But there is no evidence to support such claims.

There are some pretty obvious reason why the Labour right and the anti-Palestinian propaganda organizations want to abort the Chakrabarti report.

While there may be some valid debate to be had about the wisdom of nominating Chakrabarti for a peerage, it’s clear that most of the accusations against her in this regard are simply an attempt to abort the significant changes the report will bring to the way the Labour Party deals with allegations of anti-Semitism – and allegations of wrongdoing of any sort.

The current rules of the Labour Party mean that should anyone make a serious allegation against a member, such as anti-Semitism, party staff acting under the direction of the general secretary Iain McNicol (who seems to be vehemently anti-Corbyn) can essentially take unilateral action to temporarily suspend party members so accused while the allegations are looked into as part of a proper investigation by the party’s disciplinary body.

The fact that the vast majority of these investigations will find that there is no case to answer, and will ultimately quietly drop the allegations is cold comfort to Labour Party members who have had the right to vote in the leadership election taken away, or had their names smeared all over the right-wing press as “anti-Semites” – in hostile leaks that can far too often only have come from party HQ itself.

This poisonous process is how much of the “anti-Semitism crisis” was fuelled.

When the Chakrabarti report’s recommendations are implemented, there should be an end to all this. The report castigated the leakers (without naming party HQ or its main inquisitor, the Compliance Unit by name) and put in strong procedural changes which means that party staff will no longer be able to act unilaterally, and will have the power of interim suspension taken away. A properly-qualified legal panel will have to be put in place which will decide on cases where interim suspension will have to be used.

The party press unit will be required to follow up with a standard “no comment” line to media (hostile and otherwise) which will simply say that all complaints will be properly followed-up on, and that they don’t comment on individual cases.

This is the reason for the politicised attacks on Chakrabarti now. The report’s conclusions are so self-evidently just that they cannot be challenged on factual terms. But they would but a massive spanner in the works for prospect of resurrecting the anti-Semitism witch hnt.

Re: Two weeks until the Women’s Boat to Gaza sets sail

The Women’s Boat to Gaza (WBG) is due to set sail on September 14, 2016 to reach the shores of Gaza by early October. It will be sailed entirely by an all-women crew and will carry aboard noteworthy participants from around the world such as Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead MacGuire (Northern Ireland), Marama Davidson, Green Party MP (New Zealand), Naomi Wallace, screenwriter and playwright (USA), Gerd von der Lippe, professional athlete and academic (Norway), and Çiğdem Topçuoğlu, professional athlete and coach (Turkey), who sailed on the Mavi Marmara in 2010 and whose husband was among the 10 activist who were killed on that voyage by Israeli forces.

The women’s boat to Gaza is an initiative of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition (FFC) established in 2010 as an international solidarity movement working to end the illegal Israeli siege on Gaza. It is the FFC’s fourth mission and was launched on March 8, 2016 on International Women’s Day to highlight the role women play in the resistance movement and the survival of the Palestinian people as a whole.

The WBG participants intend to raise awareness about the ongoing struggle that women in Gaza, in the West Bank, inside the Green Line and in the diaspora, have waged and continue to wage against the Occupation.

The Freedom Flotilla Coalition has been challenging the Israeli naval blockade of Gaza in several different ways for 6 years and the WBG has made the following statement about its ethos:

“While our focus is on opposing the blockade against the Palestinian people of Gaza, we see this in the larger context of supporting the right to freedom of movement for all Palestinians. The Occupation daily violates the rights of Palestinians to move freely around their country and to leave and return to their country, as guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We also support other broad-based demands for Palestinian rights based on International Law, including:

  • Ending the Israeli Occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Apartheid Wall;
  • Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and
  • Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in United Nations General Assembly Resolution 194of 11 December 1948.”

The Gaza Strip has been under siege for a decade, with a strict Israeli-Egyptian blockade controlling the entry and exit of people and goods.

In 2014 suffered the third and bloodiest military offensive by Israel in eight years and has not since been able to recover due to the blockade.

The siege of Gaza amounts to collective punishment and is illegal under the Fourth Geneva Convention. Israel has been consistently violating international and humanitarian law, and the International Criminal Court is currently conducting a preliminary investigation into possible war crimes committed in Palestine.

Gaza has frequently reported to be heading for an environmental and humanitarian catastrophe. The UN has predicted that it will become uninhabitable by 2020.

Gaza’s 1.8 million inhabitants, most of whom are refugees, struggle to access even their most basic forms of human rights, such as food, water, electricity, medicine, shelter and sanitation. Inhabitants’ every aspect of life is affected by the siege, and the people of Gaza are in an urgent need of action from the international community to end a blockade that is slowly killing them.

Campaigns participating in the WBG include Ship to Gaza-Sweden, Ship to Gaza-Norway, Canadian Boat to Gaza, Freedom Flotilla-Italy, Palestine Solidarity Alliance-South Africa, Rumbo a Gaza-Spain, International Committee to Break the Siege of Gaza, US Boat to Gaza, Kia Ora Gaza – New Zealand/Aotearoa, and Free Gaza Australia.

The Russians AND the Democrats Are Trying to Steal The Upcoming Election

CSS-Offical-New-Logo2

Democrats stealing elections.

Democrats stealing elections.

The director of DHS has announced an aggressive campaign to stop Russian hackers from interfering with American elections. Yet Democrats voting multiple times and proven fraud with the electronic voting machines is of no concern to the director of DHS. Hillary Clinton’s criminality continues to walk on water.

The Facts Regarding Democratic Inspired Voter Fraud

Some 6.9 million Americans are registered to vote in two or more states, according to a report obtained by Watchdog.org. Our nation’s voter rolls are a mess,” says Catherine Engelbrecht, president of the election-watch group True The Vote.

A new Stanford study indicated which only use electronic voting machines give Hillary a 9% advance over Sanders in the Democratic Primary.

The Stanford study demonstrated that pre-election polls accurately predicted election results when a paper ballot was used. However, when unaccountable electronic voting machines were used, with no confirming paper trial, Clinton exceeded expectations by 9%.  When one runs the odds on this being due to random chance, the odds are nearly incalculable.

What adds fuel to this fire is that the two major manufacturers of the voting machines,  Dominion Voting and H.I.G. Capital, are large Clinton campaign supporters. I remember reading something about the fact that it is illegal to engage in such a flagrant conflict of interest.

The criminality oozing out Clinton, never stops. Here is a 3 minute, concise, summation of Clinton got away with voter fraud against Bernie Sanders and how she will do it to Donald Trump.

 

Breitbart is reporting that “Donald Trump’s claim that the 2016 presidential election could be rigged is all too true, and there’s a growing recognition from many different segments of the political spectrum that the winner could be decided by a small group of hackers, perhaps working for a foreign power.”

CNN, Mother Jones, ABC News,and Politico are all acknowledging the fact that Trump is indeed correct and that the elections are hackable.

Surprisingly, the election hacking is increasingly being done by Russian hackers who are hostile to Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. It is difficult to not root for the Russian hackers because the Democrats are so very corrupt. However, I have to remind myself that we should honor the rule of law.  Yet, I find it despicable the DHS is very concerned about Russian hacking, but not concerned at all by the trail of voter fraud activities related to the Democrats.

Conclusion

Our elections are not be trusted and that is tragic because when the masses wake up to what is happening to them, they will forsake the legal process in order bring about the needed and desired changes. That is when things will get very ugly

Old Jew claims he “pissed on Nazis.” In fake shower rooms, maybe: ZioWatch, August 31, 2016

At least nine more Turkish military tanks have entered northern Syria a day after Ankara began its first major US-backed incursion of its southern neighbor in what it called an anti-Daesh operation.  

With the new deployment, there are now some 20 Turkish tanks inside Syria, Reuters quoted an unnamed Turkish official as saying on Thursday.

“We need construction machinery to open up roads … and we may need more in the days ahead. We also have armored personnel carriers that could be used on the Syrian side. We may put them into service as needed,” the official said.

The so-called Operation Euphrates Shield, which kicked off on Wednesday morning, involves the Turkish air force and special ground forces.

Ankara says the offensive is aimed at ridding the border area of Daesh militants and Kurdish forces.

The Turkish military is supporting a ground offensive by hundreds of pro-Ankara militants in Syria, who managed to enter the Syrian border town of Jarablus in a lightening advance after meeting little resistance from Daesh terrorists there.

The offensive was launched in coordination with the US-led military coalition purportedly fighting Daesh since 2014.

Amid the Philippines president’s ‘War on Drugs’, he says he’s prepared to discuss any issues with US leader Barack Obama when they meet next week. However, Rodrigo Duterte has warned that Obama must listen to him first, before bringing up human rights.

When asked if he would be willing to discuss human rights with Obama when they meet in Laos next week, Duterte said it “depends to what degree.”

He added that his US counterpart must first fully understand the issues the Philippines is facing.

“They must understand the problem first before we talk about human rights. I would insist, listen to me: this is what the problem is, then we can talk,” he told reporters, as quoted by Reuters.

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls poured more oil onto the ongoing controversy over Islamic clothing in public places, when he appeared to suggest that head-to-toe coverings worn by Muslim women contravened the French spirit.

Valls, who is considered to be on the right wing of the ruling Socialist party, invoked the image of country’s national symbol, Marianne, which was adopted during the French Revolution to represent freedom and enlightenment – and the rejection of traditional values.

“Marianne has bare breasts because she feeds the people, she does not wear a headscarf because she is free!” Valls told a group of supporters during a public speech. “That’s the Republic!”

Local refugee agency also says it has no knowledge of such families existing

August 30, 2016, 4:41 am

A report of a Conservative synagogue in Louisville resettling Jewish refugees from Syria is false, say a local refugee resettlement agency and the rabbis of the Kentucky city’s two Conservative synagogues.

On Friday, JTA received an anonymous report that an unnamed Conservative synagogue in the city had welcomed three Syrian Jewish families. The report provided the names and some personal details of the families, but did not name the synagogue. Other publications have since published the report.

But the rabbis at the two Conservative synagogues and a representative of a local refugee resettlement agency refuted the report. While the city’s Jewish community of about 8,500 helped a Syrian Muslim family settle in the city, the rabbis said, their synagogues have not brought in any Jewish families.

“It’s a rumor. It’s not true,” Rabbi Robert Slosberg of Congregation Adath Jeshurun. told JTA. “There’s no Syrian refugee family that came to the Jewish community that anyone in the Jewish community that I’ve spoken to of authority knows about.”

Rabbi Michael Wolk of Keneseth Israel Congregation also told JTA the report “is not true at all.”

A two-tonne shipment of medicine, including vaccines, sent from Cuba has arrived in Syria, which has been gripped by foreign-sponsored militancy over the past five years.

The Cuban package arrived at Damascus International Airport on Monday. It was the first batch under a banking agreement between Havana and Damascus to settle Cuba’s debts due to Syria.

Syria’s Transport Minister Ali Hamoud said on Monday that his office finished preparatory works such as customs clearance, packaging, and transportation to ensure the arrival of the shipment without delay and under the supervision of the country’s Health Ministry.

He further thanked Cuba for supporting the Syrian people, who are suffering from violence perpetrated by Takfiri terrorists.

Meanwhile, Syria’s Deputy Health Minister Huda al-Sayyed said the shipment includes 200,000 doses of vaccines, adding that more batches will be sent to the Arab country soon.

Cuban Ambassador to Damascus Rogerio Manuel Santana Rodriguez also hailed close relations between the two states and noted that they are facing a common enemy.

Since March 2011, Syria has been hit by militancy it blames on some Western states and their regional allies.

The Takfiri militants operating in the Middle Eastern state have suffered major setbacks over the past few months as the Syrian army has managed to liberate several areas.

Israel continues to ignore international calls to halt its illegal settlement activities and demolishing Palestinian homes in the West Bank, says a UN envoy.

A recent report by the Quartet on the Middle East — comprised of the UN, the US, Russia, and the European Union — called on the Israeli regime to halt its illegal settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories, saying the settlement expansion, the demolition of Palestinian homes, and the expropriation of land were “steadily eroding the viability” of a solution to their conflict.

“Its recommendations continue to be ignored, including by a surge in Israeli settlement-related announcements and continuing demolitions,” said Nickolay Mladenov, the UN coordinator for the so-called Middle East peace process, while addressing the UN Security Council on Monday.


Palestinian children climb on the rubble of their homes after Israeli bulldozers destroyed them in the southern West Bank village of Umm al-Kheir, on August 24, 2016.

He stressed that since two months ago when the report was released, Tel Aviv has actually increased its settlement activities, including the advancement of over 1,000 more units in occupied East Jerusalem al-Quds and 735 units in the West Bank.

The UN envoy also noted that Israel has carried out a land survey on the outskirts of Bethlehem aimed at establishing new settlements.


A picture taken on July 29, 2016 shows a general view of Israeli construction cranes and excavators at the building site of new housing units in the Jewish settlement of Gilo in East Jerusalem al-Quds. 

“All of these plans would essentially create new illegal settlements and I call on Israel to cease and reverse these decisions,” he stressed.

Over half a million Israelis live in more than 230 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank including East al-Quds.

All Israeli settlements are illegal under the international law. Tel Aviv has defied calls to stop the settlement expansion in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Today Dr. Duke invited Attorney Don Advo to join he and Dr. Slattery. They discussed the potential for enough Americans to wake up in enough numbers in time to keep Hillary Clinton from staggering into the White House. Substitution-level immigration, black on white crime, and insane wars have started the process, but the (((media))) has shielded people not directly effected from exposure to these disasters.

However, the Colin Kaepernik protest against the national anthem is attracting backers from all the black athletes and celebrates that the media loves to hold up as exemplars of moral virtue. It is almost guaranteed that his anti-anthem, anti-flag, anti-white protest will spread throughout the NFL and to other professional sports. The media will be unable to shields sports fans from these ridiculous acts of protest, and insignificant as this symbolism is in the grand scheme of things, it may well be what finally awakens the sleeping giant.
