The visit of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu caused a boycott by more than 50 House Democrats and protests from the Jewish community. While speaking at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in D.C., Netanyhahu was faced with protests from a few dozen rabbis who oppose the state of Israel, as well as protesters with CodePink rallying outside the Cannon House Office Building. The CodePink protesters entered the House buildings and confronted members of Congress for their support of Netanyahu’s plan to halt nuclear talks between the US and Iran. Netanyahu also spoke to Congress directly asking those in attendance to abandon the talks with Iran, calling it a “very bad deal”.

Short Description: Journalist Maurice Herman, aka 108Morris108, has fallen into a coma in Cambodia. Together, we can find his family, and raise funds for hospital expenses
[Potent News editor’s note: I estimate that I probably posted at least 100 or 200 of Morris’ videos on PotentNews.com over the years. His work is crucial. Few people have done what Morris has done. He has raised awareness about the true nature of the plight of the people in Libya, Syria, Ukraine, and elsewhere. Indeed, my family in Syria would probably be in a much more nightmarish situation right now if it wasn’t for people like Morris relentlessly and accurately exposing the western invasion of that region. He calls out the Zionists. In addition, he interviews stellar individuals such as Joaquin Flores, Neil Sanders, Sheikh Imran Hosein, and Michael Hoffman. He is only one man but he already accomplished more than most can dream of accomplishing in this Idiocracy-like world that we live in. He is clearly dedicated, has accumulated momentum and has formed alliances with many enlightening and strong people. Losing him would be a tragedy. Please help him!]

Turkey has now officially proven that Israel and the United States are not the only nations that can brazenly violate the sovereignty of other countries, Syria in particular, without fear of reprisal due to NATO support and a blatant culture of aggression.
The Turkish invasion of Syrian soil on February 22 under the guise of protecting and securing the tomb of Sulayman Shah is case in point.
The tomb is largely recognized as a Turkish exclave since the early 1920s when, in 1921, it was agreed in the Treaty of Ankara that the Turks would be allowed to raise the Turkish flag over the tomb and place a small number of Turkish guards around the mausoleum given that Sulayman Shah bears such significance to Turkish history. The tomb is located about 23 miles from Turkey itself and thus is located inside Syrian territory.
According to mainstream Western press like CNN, the Turks were forced to evacuate the tomb and its contents due to the escalating violence in the area. CNN also reports that the evacuation was led and conducted with the 40 guards stationed around the tomb.
However, the reality is that the tomb evacuation was actually a relatively large military operation involving about 600 Turkish soldiers, 100 tanks, and APCs.
The Turkish military apparently entered Syria via Kobane (Ayn al-Arab).
Yet, while ISIS presence in towns and cities surrounding the tomb was cited as the reason for the evacuation, it should be noted that ISIS, so close to the tomb, never fired one shot at the Turkish military as it conducted its operations. Since, if Western press reports are to be believed, ISIS is the absolute worst strategist when it comes to avoiding unnecessary conflict with nations not necessarily engaged in combat against it, the fact that ISIS forces would allow the Turkish forces to enter its “territory” without so much as even the threat of violence is questionable to say the least.
What is much more believable, however, is that the Turkish forces acted in coordination with ISIS forces so as to justify an essential invasion of Syria and establish a foothold there as the Israelis direct ISIS forces and bomb Syrian territory from the Southwest and Jordan facilitates terrorism from the South. Of course, the U.S., NATO, and its proxy forces in the eastern portions of Syria simultaneously push toward the same center of the country at the same time.
This is not the first time the tomb of Sulayman Shah has been used to justify Turkish military engagement inside Syrian territory.

After two rockets from the Syrian side of the border allegedly landed in the Israeli occupied territory of the Golan Heights on Tuesday, Israel has launched an immediate “response” of artillery fire into Syria.
The “exchange” comes only a week after an illegal Israeli military air assault inside Syria that resulted in the deaths of top Iranian and Hezbollah commanders who were in the country for the purposes of advising anti-ISIS forces as well as investigating the coordination taking place between ISIS, al-Qaeda, and Israel.
Israeli military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said Tuesday’s fire “appeared to be intentional.” He declined to comment on whether the fire may have been connected to last week’s airstrike.
A message on Lerner’s Twitter account said that Israel “responded with artillery towards the positions that launched the attack.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel views the rockets “very seriously” and that it will retaliate to attacks.
“Those that play with fire will get fire,” Netanyahu said at a memorial for International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
The military said sirens sounded in communities in the Golan Heights earlier Tuesday. It said that it had evacuated and closed a popular ski resort following the strike. No injuries were reported.
Likewise, a video posted by AFP seems to suggest that Israel also downed a Syrian fighter jet over the Golan Heights, but that the fighters had ejected to safety. The Israelis claim that the plane had ventured across the ceasefire line and into Israeli territory.
This is by no means the first time that Israel has attacked Syria in support of the Western-backed terrorists or even the first time that it has done so in coordination with them.

Canadian born Arthur Topham has a background in Political Science and Education. Since 1999 he has been the Writer, Journalist, Publisher & Editor of RadicalPress.com. Due to the fact that the website has been sabotaged on a number of occasions over the years the information on it only goes back to June of 2006. Arthur will talk about the pressures of Jewish lobbyists in Canada to remove his site, specifically B’nai Brith Canada. Its materials posted sparked two attacks from the lobbyists, the first occurring in 2007 when he was charged with a sec. 13(1) “hate crime” under the legislation contained in Canada’s Human Rights Code. The second attack occurred in 2012 when he was charged under the Canadian Criminal Code, sec. 319(2) “Hate Propaganda” legislation with “willfully promoting hatred against an identifiable group, people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin.” He’ll talk about these charges, his arrest and the upcoming trial before the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Arthur discusses the history of such “hate propaganda” laws in Canada and how they came about. He’ll also talk about the former sec. 13 legislation which was used by the lobby groups for decades to stifle criticism of Israel and discussion concerning anything related to Zionism both on and off the internet. In the second hour, we’ll speak more about forced Zionist agendas in Europe, replacement level migration in the west, anti-Europhobia and why people, wherever they are on the political spectrum, should be concerned that freedom of speech and freedom of the press is threatened in Canada.

Previously an outspoken critic of Iranian government, was interviewed by Australian media in 2001, loved Western society…
As predicted, the suspect amid the “Sydney Siege,” has long been on the radar of Australian law enforcement, as well as a frequent visitor to Australia’s court system.
Before that, however, he came to Australia as a political refugee, an opponent of what he called the “Iranian regime,” and was even interviewed by Australia’s ABC network in 2001 as part of an ongoing anti-Iranian propaganda campaign.
It has been revealed that long-time agitator, alias “Man Haron Monis,” also known as “Manteghi Boroujerdi,” was the suspect amid the so-called “Sydney Siege” hostage crisis. Monis/Boroujerdi claims to be a Shia’a religious leader and is often seen in press photos dressed as one.
Despite this, he was at the center of a hostage crisis requesting the flag of the “Islamic State” terrorist organization be delivered to him while claiming association with other ISIS “brothers.”
Neither Islamic nor a state, ISIS is led by US, Israeli, and Saudi-backed Wahabi terrorists, promoting a perversion of Sunni Islam – the bane to both genuine Sunnis and Shia’a worldwide and against which both the nations of Syria and Iran are fighting.
Monis/Boroujerdi rose to infamy amid two notable incidents – one being his involvement in the stabbing death and burning of his ex-wife – the other being his controversial campaign of sending hate-letters to the families of dead Australian soldiers killed during the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan. The latter was used extensively to stir up division across the pro and anti-war political divide.

Press TV correspondent Serena Shim has been killed, perhaps murdered, near the Turkish-Syrian boarder. Shim had for many months been documenting Turkey’s ignominious role in the ongoing destabilization of Syria. Many Zionist-backed Islamist zealots have been funnelling into Syria via Turkey, often armed with Israeli weapons, with the goal of overthrowing one of the few governments in the world which refuses to accept Zionist colonization of the Middle East. Shim was illuminating this inconvenient truth to the world and loss her life in the process.
As with slain Press TV correspondent Maya Nasser, Shim was exposing the non-Syrian ethnicity of much of the anti-government fighters, thus falsifying the Western propaganda claim that an indigenous grass-roots uprising is taking place in the country.
While the Zionist controlled media in the West has been championing the destruction of Syria, Press TV has been almost alone in producing reportage which is critical of the actions of the NATO-backed armed gangs which are undermining peace and stability in the region.
Shim had in the hours leading up to her death been falsely accused of engaging in espionage by members of the Turkish establishment who were no doubt eager to suppress the news she was disseminating. Press TV reported
“Serena was killed in a reported car accident when she was returning from a report scene in the city of Suruch in Turkey’s Urfa province. She was going back to her hotel in Urfa when their car collided with a heavy vehicle. Urfa province is near the Syrian border. Serena Shim covered reports for Press TV in Lebanon, Iraq, and Ukraine. On Friday, she told Press TV that the Turkish intelligence agency has threatened and accused her of spying and she fears to be arrested.”
As someone who was her colleague I would like to express my condolences to her loved ones. Serena was potentially saving lives in Syria by revealing the machinations of Israeli-sponsord death squads on the Turkish side of the Syrian-Turkish boarder. R.I.P Serena Shim.
