According to newly released research by the independent Russian public opinion center Levada, 16 percent of Russians have serious fears that the Syrian war could turn into World War III. Forty-one percent also have such fears, but described them as moderate, 27 percent said they estimate the probability to be low, and only 11 percent say it won’t happen.
In October 2016, the combined share of those who feared that the standoff between Russia and the West over Syria could develop into a global military conflict was about 48 percent.
The number of those who said they were following the news on Syria increased from about 74 percent in August 2017 to 86 percent today, with 31 percent saying that they paid close attention to the news. The share of Russians who expressed interest in the conflict was higher only in late 2015, soon after the start of Russia’s counter-terrorism operation in Syria. Back then, 89 percent of Russians said they were following the news on the conflict more or less frequently.
Levada expert Stepan Goncharov said that the increasing fear of global war was a result of the higher intensity of combat in Syria, more frequent news reports on the subject, and also the general instability in international relations. The head of the research department of the Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute, Aleksey Malashenko, also played down the grim expectations of over half of all Russians. He told RBC news agency that the rise in the alarmist mood among the public could be explained by regular fluctuations and TV coverage of Middle East news.
In late April, the state-run public opinion research center VTSIOM reported that public support for Russia’s military operation in Syria increased from 34 to 39 percent in about three months, despite the fact that almost half of the respondents see the situation in Syria as noticeably deteriorating.
The poll also showed that 88 percent of Russians were interested in the current situation in Syria, with 39 percent saying they did their best to receive regular news updates on the situation.
Regarding the Russian Air Force’s counter-terrorism operation in Syria, 39 percent said that they supported it – up from 34 percent in mid-February. A total of 17 percent said they would prefer more active policies, which also represents an increase from 14 percent a month ago. Those who think that Russia should withdraw from Syria dropped from 11 to 9 percent over the same period.
This is confirmed by The Protocols of the Elders of Zion which is a Sabbatean document. The author scorns ideas of equality and liberty:
“Far back in ancient times we were the first to cry among the masses of the people the words “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,” words many times repeated since these days by stupid poll-parrots…(26) In all corners of the earth the words “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,” brought to our ranks, thanks to our blind agents,[i.e. dupes] whole legions who bore our banners with enthusiasm. And all the time these words were canker-worms at work boring into the well-being of the goyim, putting an end everywhere to peace, quiet, solidarity and destroying all the foundations of the goy States.
28. The abstraction of freedom has enabled us to persuade the mob in all countries that their government is nothing but the steward of the people who are the owners of the country, and that the steward may be replaced like a worn-out glove. 29. It is this possibility of replacing the representatives of the people which has placed at our disposal, and, as it were, given us the power of appointment.” (Protocol 1, emphasis mine)
Our political life is essentially an illusion. As early as 1823, Hoene Wronski wrote: “Secret societies are detached into groups distinct and apparently opposed, professing respectively and in turn the most contrary opinions of the day, so as to direct, apart and with confidence, all parties, political, religious, economic, and literary. They, in order to receive common direction, are again united to an unknown centre…an Unknown Supreme Committee who governs the world.” (Light-bearers of Darkness, p.2)
The lesson is not to avoid political activity, but to be very selective. The world is in the thrall of a satanic cult. The correct paradigm is humanity versus this cult, its agents and dupes. Unfortunately, these are often people society considers a “success.”

Childhood obesity is a complex epidemic, with lots of factors playing a role in the problem at the general and individual levels. Nevertheless, many weight problems can be boiled down to two driving forces: inactivity and poor eating choices.
When fingers started pointing to soft drinks maker Coca-Cola for playing a role in the problem, they decided to use science to fight back. Of course, it would be really difficult for any study, no matter how well-funded, to conclude that this sugar-laden product is healthy in any way and does not lead to weight gain, so they decided to take a far more underhanded approach.
Instead, they funded studies that place the blame for childhood obesity squarely on inactivity, ignoring the role that products like their own clearly play in this epidemic. A paper that was recently published by the Journal of Public Health Policy sheds some light on this dishonest approach.
Researchers looked at studies carried out as part of the International Study of Childhood Obesity, Lifestyle, and the Environment (ISCOLE), which was funded using a grant from Coca-Cola of $6.4 million – a small price to pay to protect their future profits.
Not surprisingly, the ISCOLE study concluded that physical inactivity is a key predictor of childhood obesity, seemingly clearing soda consumption as a culprit. In 24 of these studies, a conflict of interest disclosure says that the study was funded by the Coca-Cola Company, but goes on to declare: “The study sponsor has no role in study design, data collection, analysis, conclusions or publications. The only sponsor requirement was that the study be global in nature.”
Emails tell the real story
Unfortunately, that appears to be an outright lie as evidence uncovered by food industry watchdog U.S. Right to Know using a Freedom of Information Act request shows. They discovered that Coca-Cola did indeed influence the design of the studies, with emails showing that the researchers and Coca-Cola reps went back and forth discussing the design of the study. The firm’s Chief Science and Health Officer Rhona Applebaum, for example, advised ISCOLE Co-Principal Investigator Peter Katzmarzyk on which countries should be included in the study. The presentation of the results was also discussed between the parties.
It’s an upsetting finding to say the least, and it leads one to wonder just how often this sort of deception takes place with companies around the world protecting their interest. Declaring who funded the study apparently isn’t enough if firms are getting away with influencing how it is set up and presented without disclosing that influence to the public. Moreover, it skews our body of knowledge and dilutes legitimate scientific research with erroneous findings.
Professor David Stuckler of Bocconi University’s Research Centre Dodona said: “What these emails reveal is how complex conflicts of interest are and how poorly they are currently managed. There is a danger that vested interests such as Coca-Cola pollute the scientific literature with research serving a hidden agenda.”
Paying bloggers to promote Coke as healthy
It’s a longstanding strategy for the company, but they appear to have kicked their campaigns into high gear as people increasingly turn their backs on unhealthy food and make conscious choices to eat better. A few years ago, Coca-Cola was caught paying nutrition and fitness experts to publish articles in favor of Coke on more than 1,000 websites.
They appear to have had quite a few takers, with one article on Patch.com penned by a “personal trainer and sports nutritionist” telling readers in an article on Heart Health Month to “look for a refreshing beverage option such as a mini can of Coca-Cola.” How can they live with themselves?
As you can see, Coca-Cola is doing its best to convince the public that its drinks, which contain such health-destroying ingredients as high-fructose corn syrup from genetically engineered corn and phosphoric acid, are perfectly fine and have nothing to do with weight gain. It seems they don’t care if they trick well-meaning parents into giving their kids products that will harm them as long as those sales keep coming in.

With the recall of Sudan’s Ambassador from Egypt, the closure of the Eritrean Border and a recent visit by Turkey’s President in which a Turkish takeover of a strategic island port fuelled uncertainty, it is safe to say that Sudan has moved closer than ever before to direct military conflict with its neighbours. The country now finds itself preparing its strategy to deal with major geopolitical issues facing the region.
The relative calm was arguably first disturbed by the Sudanese President’s visit to Sochi on 23 November last year, where he met his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. Omar Al-Bashir’s brief encounter set off a chain of reactions adding disquiet to the already tense atmosphere between his country and Egypt, and served to worry Sudan’s neighbours across the Red Sea in Saudi Arabia.
Many commentators were astonished by Al-Bashir’s outburst in which he blamed the US for Sudan’s problems and for partitioning a once united country. His request to the Russians for protection “from the interventionist aggression of the United States” was viewed as a rather clumsy attempt to alter the dynamics of the geopolitical balance in the Nile Basin region.
Equally, the possibility of Russian naval vessels plying up and down the Red Sea also became a worry. Fortunately for the US and Egypt, Russia’s announcement that it was not in need of a military base in Sudan allowed opposing voices to heave huge sighs of relief.
However, the visit by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the decision to grant Turkey a 99-year lease on the former Ottoman port of Suakin Island — once a haven for Muslim pilgrims heading to Makkah — brought back memories of “foreign” occupation of the Nile Basin.
Even before Erdogan’s two-day visit was over, the Egyptian media launched a scathing attack on Sudan. In Emad Adeeb’s stinging opinion piece headlined “Omar Bashir’s political suicide” the writer sensed a conspiracy and summarised Egypt’s concern: “Sudan is violating the rules of history and geography and is conspiring against Egypt under the shadow of Turkish madness, Iranian conspiracy, an Ethiopian scheme to starve Egypt of water and Qatar’s financing of efforts to undermine Egypt.”
Iran and Qatar have not commented on all of this, but on the third day of Egypt’s media frenzy Khartoum and Ankara issued separate statements firmly denying that Turkey was about to set up a military base on Suakin. The late denials only help to fuel the firmly held theory surrounding Turkey’s high profile stance in the Muslim world, which claims that Erdogan is trying to re-establish the Ottoman Empire. An article published in the Huffington Post titled “Erdogan: The Sultan of an illusionary Ottoman Empire” claimed that the Turkish President is hell-bent on using Islam as a tool to “indoctrinate the public in a subliminal way to his perspective of the glorious Ottoman period.”
To add fuel to the fire, media reports — described as “fake news” by Cairo, unsurprisingly — suggested that Egypt had attempted to cut Sudan out of the Nile water agreement by calling on Ethiopia to have direct talks. Ethiopia’s decision to build the Grand Renaissance Dam on the Nile has rattled Cairo. Despite trilateral meetings and the signing of accords guaranteeing Egypt’s water share, Cairo has sought to obtain firmer pledges from Ethiopia in the form of binding written agreements.
A few days ago, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates moved troops and heavy artillery into the Eritrean base of Sawa. The move has not only troubled Sudan but Ethiopia is also reported to have deployed military reinforcements on the border triangle with Eritrea. Over the weekend, Sudan first denied that thousands of its troops were amassing on the Eritrean border, but then the Governor of Kassala in east Sudan announced a complete shutdown of the border, with neither goods nor people being allowed to enter or leave the country.
It appears that Sudan, Ethiopia and opposition groups in both countries are preparing for the worst-case scenario of an Egyptian air strike on the Renaissance Dam. Such a move would be a disaster for the region, bringing chaos and retaliatory strikes, the first of which, according to sources in Sudan, would be an attack on Egypt’s Aswan High Dam.
However, whilst the withdrawal of Sudan’s Ambassador from Egypt was a sign of Sudan’s displeasure, observers say that Khartoum is holding out for a de-escalation of tension, leaving room for the issues to be resolved through diplomatic means. The strongest illustration of that hope will be if Ambassador Abdel Mahmoud Abdel-Haleem gets on a flight to Cairo and normal diplomatic relations between the neighbouring states are restored.
