We have been hearing loud assertions of Russian benevolence towards the Arab world for some time, usually emanating from certain dogmatic quarters of anti-Zionist, anti-imperialist circles on the web.
These analysts see themselves as top class mind readers, tapping into the brain of Vladimir Putin and interpreting his every geopolitical move in a positive manner, no matter how ugly or duplicitous it may appear to be on the surface.
Putin is playing a master class chess match against the New World Order, these partisan analysts say, ignoring or downplaying anything that doesn’t conform to their Russophilic talking points.
Putin is a super secret anti-Zionist who will ‘checkmate’ Israel any day now, these dogmatists theorize with confidence, without providing a tangible piece of evidence that this is true.
Putin is a Pragmatist, Not an Anti-Zionist
Russia under Putin’s leadership has pursued a delicate balance between ideological support as well as economic and military cooperation with Israel on the one hand, and cashing in on lucrative oil, gas, nuclear energy and military contracts with several Arab/Muslim states on the other.
Spellbound Putin supporters point to the ex-KGB strongman’s whimpered public statements in support of a “Palestinian state” as evidence that he’s an anti-Zionist. These lackluster analysts knowingly fail to point out that such rhetoric from the Kremlin is completely offset by Putin’s much more forthright and unequivocal proclamations in support of Israel in its current configuration.
During a meeting with a delegation of Israeli and Russian Jewish religious leaders in July 2014, Putin said he identifies with and supports the “struggle of Israel” against the native Arabs whose land and resources have been consistently usurped by European and Russian Jews who mass migrated to Palestine and then took much of it over through violence and terrorism in 1948. One rabbi at the meeting ‘blessed’ Putin’s leadership in Russia, saying it was the ‘will of god.’ Putin told the rabbis that he is a “true friend of Israel” and of its extremist prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
Putin has described Israel as part of the “Russian world” because 15 percent of its population is of Russian origin. Despite living in Israel, many of these Russian-Israelis vote in Russian elections, and a good number of them cast their ballot for Putin. At a 2011 dialogue conference featuring organizations representing the major religious and ethnic groups in Russia, Putin stated that Israel is “a special state to us” because it is “practically a Russian-speaking country.” Russian-speaking Israelis form the base of the ultra-Zionist Yisrael Beiteinu political party, headed by Israel’s former foreign affairs minister Avigdor Lieberman who recently called for “disloyal” Arab citizens of Israel to be “beheaded.”
During a 2013 joint press conference, Putin and Netanyahu both affirmed that ties between Russia and Israel are getting ‘stronger and stronger.’ Putin said that “our relationship with Israel is both friendly and mutually beneficial.” He stressed that Russia and Israel cooperate in a “wide variety of areas,” including political, cultural, economic and military. He proudly noted that under his watch the Russian city of Gelendzhik was twinned with the Israeli city of Netanya.
Russia has fuelled Israel’s war economy, purchasing more than $550 million of Israeli drones since Putin became president. In 2010, Russia and Israel signed a five-year military contract that boosted “military ties between the two nations to help them fight common threats, such as terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.” Increased cooperation and information sharing between Russian and Israeli intelligence services was one result of the agreement.

Alex Jones has recently filmed a debate between himself and former Grand Wizard of the KKK David Duke, and while Jones claims to use the logic of the “globalists” against themselves, he inadvertently reveals his own ties with the Patriot and white supremacist movements, which have been a key component in the Zionist manipulation of conspiracy culture in the US.
Theodor Herzl, the founder of Zionism, employing the ultimate chutzpah, pronounced a plan to exploit the stereotype of the wealthy Jew in order to create anti-Semitism to generate support for the cause of Zionism. According to Herzl, “The anti-Semites shall be our best friends.”
Throughout the century, maintaining the impression of an enduring threat of “anti-Semitism” has been essential to the Zionists’ quest of recruiting the backing of the nations of the world in support for the genocidal and racist state of Israel. Ultimately, the Zionists have been cultivating a culture of anti-Semitism around the world, and especially in American conspiracy culture.
As demonstrated by Yoav Shamir, in True Stories: Defamation, a 2010 documentary aired by Channel 4, the Anti-Defamation League, originally founded by the Masonic and Sabbatean B’nai B’rith, tends to exaggerate or even fabricate the threat of anti-Semitism. In 2005, Norman G. Finkelstein explained in Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History, that the specter of a “new anti-Semitism” has been invented by supporters of Israel to brand any serious criticisms of Israel’s human rights abuses as anti-Semitism.
To Yoav Shamir, Abe Foxman, who had been the ADL’s head since 1987, explained his power and influence as exploiting the “fine line” of anti-Semitism. Jews, he explains, “are not as powerful as Jews think we are, nor as powerful as our enemies think we are. Somewheres [sic] in between. They do believe we can make a difference in Washington, and we are not going to convince them otherwise.” Foxman asks, “How do you fight this conspiratorial view of Jews without using it?” Yoav Shamir interprets Foxman’s explanation to mean, “It’s like a poker game, in which Foxman bluffs the other side into thinking the Jews have more influence and power in Washington than they really have. The downside is, that the idea of Jews being so powerful can result in envy, even hate.”
Following upon Leo Strauss’ prescription of using Plato’s concept of “noble lies,” the Zionist neoconservatives seized on a plot to gain grassroots support in the US by aligning themselves with the Christian Right. By denouncing purported threats of “communism,” the movement serves the CIA and the Zionists’ real aim of pushing neoliberalism, the synarchist and fascist ideology of the Mont Pelerin Society, marketed to unsuspecting Americans as “Libertarianism.”
Funding for these policies, that defined the economics of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan, known as “Reaganomics,” derived primarily from Rockefeller-dominated ExxonMobil, which then funded other foundations or known CIA fronts, who in turn fund the many conservative organizations and think tanks. These incluce the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, Sarah Scaife Foundation and John M. Olin Foundation, who are also responsible for funding the Zionist American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and the right-wing and the Heritage Foundation.
The Heritage Foundation represents one of the many tentacles of the gigantic Tavistock octopus, which has extended from the University of Sussex to the US through the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), Esalen Institute, MIT, Hudson Institute, Brookings Institution, Aspen Institute, the Center of Strategic and International Studies at Georgetown, US Air Force Intelligence, and the RAND Corporation.
The Tavistock Clinic was originally formed in 1920 by the Royal Institute for International Affairs, the sister organization of the Rockefeller-founded Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), both of which were products of the original Round Table created at the bidding of Cecil Rhodes. The Tavistock Clinic, which became the Psychiatric Division of the British Army during World War II, and contributed to the CIA’s MK-Ultra program, took its name from its benefactor Herbrand Russell, Marquees of Tavistock, 11th Duke of Bedford, a title inherited by the influential Russell family, one of the most prominent aristocratic families in Britain who came to power and the peerage with the rise of the Tudor dynasty.
From Washington to the western media, everyone has been talking about reports of potential Russian ‘intervention’ in Syria. On the one hand, the proliferation of this meme is a case study in the western propaganda system, as one report is then repeated ad nauseam from thousands of sources, then built upon by subsequent reports, thereby manufacturing the irrefutable truth from the perspective of media pundits and western mouthpieces. On the other hand, the new reports also raise some interesting questions about the motives of both the US and Russia, as well as the other interested parties to the conflict in Syria.
In examining this new chapter of the ongoing war in Syria, two critical and interrelated points seem to rise above all others in importance: Why is the western media hyping this narrative of Russian intervention? And why is direct Russian involvement, limited though it may be, seen as such a threat by the US?
This mass migration plan has been in the works for a long time, but they’re kicking it up several serious notches now, flooding the US borders while continuing to swarm European countries with any immigrants they can from a variety of cultures.
What and who is behind it?
Clearly staged US/NATO/Israeli sponsored terrorism and genocide are at work in the middle east, driving desperate people to seek asylum elsewhere, as the US mandates inviting in as many as possible over its southern border. And all in concert.
As usual, they give themselves away in their own documents and bloated speeches to their own inner circle. In particular, United Nations globalist fat cat Peter Sutherland, non-executive Chairman of Goldman Sachs and former BP CEO, never mind top Bilderberger and Trilateral Commission honcho, has come right out and stated their plan as plainly and arrogantly as possible.

“Spontaneous.” “Genuine.” Defiant.” The US State Department’s marketeers have used these labels in attempts to differentiate its latest wave of global “color revolutions” from the now tired, ineffective, and familiar formulas used everywhere from the US-engineered “Arab Spring,” to the Euromaidan in Ukraine, to Bersih 4.0 in Malaysia.
The latest target is Lebanon where protests have begun in the streets of the capital, Beirut. Branded the “YouStink!” marches, the alleged provocation was dysfunctional municipal garbage collection services. However, very predictably, the protests have shifted quickly from what could have been perceived as legitimate demands to outright calls for regime change.
Color Revolutions 2.0
Just recently in Armenia, the US conducted what appeared to be a test run of its new and improved “color revolution” system of regime change. It attempted to create a movement with little if any initial political affiliation and with deeply hidden ties between protest organizers and their US State Department affiliations. Ultimately the so-called “Electric Yerevan” protests, whose alleged grievances were rising electric bills, spent so much time trying to convince Armenians and people around the world that they weren’t a US-backed mob, they never succeeded in building up sufficient momentum to move on to the next step.
The trick was to first use rising electrical costs as a pretext to stage the protests, then quickly swing them around to demand a change in government. Likely, provocations and violence were planned for later stages, as well as opportunities for America’s client opposition parties to take over and swell the ranks of street mobs with their supporters.
In Armenia, America’s next generation of color revolutions failed.
In Beirut, however, it seems that the protests have made it at least to the point where the alleged pretext – piles of garbage – have now been replaced with demands for regime change.
Despite the 2005 so-called “Cedar Revolution” being exposed as entirely US-engineered, paving the way for the expulsion of Syrian troops from Lebanon and an Israeli attack on the country the following year, many even in the alternative press have been taken in by what should be an obvious, albeit more carefully concealed, follow-up to 2005’s events.

This short documentary examines the support that the US and Israel are providing to the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), which use to call itself Al-Qaeda in Iraq and more recently calls itself the Islamic State, and its self-declared “caliphate.”
Audiences are presented with past analyses from the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG), by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya and Michel Chossudovsky, that connects the dots between the two crises in Iraq and Syria and the long war of the US that is ultimately aimed at controlling Eurasia.
The division of Iraq and the Middle East is part of a longstanding push into Eurasia by the US, Israel, and their allies that has consistently involved a set of pretexts and lies. Sectarian hatred between Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims and between Kurds and Arabs is now falsely being presented as the basis for the conflicts in Iraq and Syria.
The US military cannot go into any country that it desires for regime change. This is why Washington has applied other techniques for regime change. In 2006, with the failure of the US to break the Resistance Bloc or Axis of Resistance in the Middle East, the US began its “redirection” policy and opted to use insurgencies, sectarianism, colour revolutions, and intensified covert operations.
One of the people that set the stage for the division of Iraq is Joseph Biden, the current vice-president of the United States. When Biden was a US senator in the US Congress, he presented the Biden Plan to divide Iraq into three sectarian entities in 2008. In part, the Biden Plan created one of the blueprints for the political face of the current crisis in Iraq.
The US also wants the federal government in Iraq to be replaced, because it refused to help the US and its allies in the war against Syria, its alliance with Iran, Iraq’s growing trade and purchases of military hardware from the Russian Federation, and Iraqi oil sales to China. Because of Washington’s desires for regime change in Baghdad and its plans to divide Iraq, the US government has been delaying aid to the Iraqi government. Russia and Belarus, on the other hand, have stepped in to militarily help Baghdad, alongside Iran and Syria.
While the US is covertly supporting the division of Iraq, Israel is overtly been supporting this as outlined by the Yinon Plan. After the ISIL’s 2014 offensive inside Iraq began, Iraqi officials reported that the Israelis were present in Iraqi Kurdistan and also involved in assisting the ISIL fighters inside Iraq’s borders. Tel Aviv has even openly told Washington to let the different groups in Iraq kill one another, just like Iran and Iraq were doing during the Iraq-Iran War. While Israel refuses to allow or recognize Palestinian independence, Israeli officials have called for the international community to recognize the dismemberment of Iraq by recognizing Iraqi Kurdistan as a separate republic. This is because Israel plans on using the Kurdish people as pawns and Iraqi Kurdistan as a regional outpost.
The Kurdistan Regional Government has used the ISIL’s 2014 offensive as an opportunity to takeover the multi-ethnic and oil-rich Iraqi city of Kirkuk and to announce that it plans to declare independence from Iraq. In part, petro-politics and control over energy is tied to the Kurdistan Regional Government’s plans of secession and its armed takeover of Kirkuk, which it has claimed as its historic capital. The Turkish government has already been making illegal energy deals with the leaders of the Kurdistan Regional Government for Iraqi oil. Reports are also surfacing that Israel will buy Iraqi oil from the Kurdistan Regional Government via Turkey.
With the takeover of Kirkuk, Iraqi oil will be sent to the Turkish port of Ceyhan, which is the Eastern Mediterranean export terminal for the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Pipeline. This not only gives Israel access to Iraqi oil, but also endangers Eurasian energy integration and the
Banyias-Kirkuk Pipeline running from Iraq to Syria.
The Iraqi and Syrian people must stand united in the face of the project to divide their ancient societies and countries.

The following text stems from my response to a pro-Putin commenter here on Non-Aligned Media. I’ve addressed the Putin/Russia issue many times before, having written a number of articles dedicated to my criticisms of Putin. The commenter advanced many familiar, go-to arguments for why Putin is someone to be viewed favourably and I address them below.
The commenter wrote:
he [Putin] threw out those who had already grabbed and privatised the 1) banks 2) insurance companies 3) media. By which they had gained control over the country, ready to exploit it further… the usual strategy. This they had achieved under drunkard Yeltsin. Putin returned the bank to the state, and told the Jews who put him in power to fuck off, one of them being Khodorkovsky who is the favourite candidate of the Americans for presidency in Russia. I am really not sure if your analysis is correct. What are your sources with regard to Putin? What do you think his ultimate goal is, then? From what I understand, the terrorists in Chechenya were Muslims… what if there were terrorist acts staged by Israel and CIA etc? Aren’t they the ones who are mainly after the natural resources in Russia? Who would have a reason to destabilize Russia? I mean he is ex-KGB, maybe he has some info that we don’t have?
Your thinking on this issue is indicative of a broader disconnect in the skewed outlook of many people who myopically divide the entire world into a conflict between Jews and Gentiles. Within this narrow line of reasoning, the Jew vs. Gentile dichotomy takes precedence over all other ethnic or geopolitical disputes. So in this case you prioritize Russian ‘interests’, dismissing Chechnya’s perspective whole sale, mainly because you feel Putin “stood up to the Jews” in whatever limited capacity that he did. So murdering 100,000 Chechens in a “dirty war” based on a lie is no biggie, because Putin quarrelled with a few rich Jews during his ascent to power. Doesn’t make much sense to me.
And it really gets convoluted when these supposedly pro-Muslim human rights, anti-Neocon, anti-Zionists start pontificating like neocon Zionists when it comes to Chechnya, spouting whole cloth Russian propaganda about “irrational jihadism” as the sole cause of the conflict between Russia and Chechnya, when obviously it’s a territorial dispute spurred by centuries of Russian occupation. We shouldn’t forget that even though Russia has humbled itself in recent years, it is still somewhat of an imperial power that seeks hegemony in its part of the world.
These same “anti-Zionists” would not be so keen to defend Russia and all of its geopolitical intrigues if it openly identified as Communist, even though Russia was markedly more hostile to Israel and friendlier to the Arab world during the communist years than it is today. But Putin has cleverly crafted a veneer of pro-Christian cultural conservatism which has wooed a good many conservative Christians in the West (proving that such people care more about his religious/cultural proclivities than his actions). Moreover, Putin’s luke-warm support of Syria and Iran (for venal economic reasons) has won over a good number of opportunistic Arabs/Muslims who prioritize Middle Eastern Arab/Muslim causes above that of the Chechens. However, none of Putin’s domestic policies or foreign policies in other areas exonerates him from culpability in murdering thousands of Chechens for the sake of maintaining Russian hegemony in the Caucasus.
German media have reported that police have raided the house of 86-year-old Ursula Haverbeck, a German lady who has publicly doubted the Holocaust story.
A report in Mindener Tageblatt says:
“The public prosecution department of the city of Bielefeld has been investigating a case of “incitement to hatred“ (Volksverhetzung) against … Ursula Haverbeck. Now, a new lawsuit was added: prosecutors of Niedersachsen’s State Office of Criminal Investigations have searched the houses of Vlotho resident Haverbeck with the support of authorities of the city of Herford. The houses of three further accused were also searched on that day.”
Haverbeck has been constantly pursued by German authorities for her nonconformist opinions about the Holocaust. In Germany, a self-professed ‘democracy,’ individuals do not have the right to question establishment myths about the Second World War. The public is forced to accept the self-serving interpretations of the winners of World War II under penalty of fines and imprisonment.
The government of Germany should be boycotted and condemned until the present Stasi-like police state is disbanded.

Considering the years of propaganda surrounding Iran and its nuclear program, it was clear to any informed observer that the recent US-Iran nuclear deal was nothing more than theatre. After all, the US/NATO imperialist machine has made its desire to wage war on the Persian nation explicit for some time. The only question is just how long this theatre will last before that goal is finally realized.
While the Western press and corporate media outlets have taken to presenting the Iran nuclear deal as either a tragic capitulation to the deadly warmongering Iranians or a brilliant lunge for peace with the deadly warmongering Iranians, the premise of their presentations are exactly the same – that Iran is dangerous, wants war, and is doing whatever it can to acquire a nuclear weapon.
This is, of course, despite the fact that there is no evidence that Iran is attempting to gain a nuclear weapon or has any aggressive intent in the region. In fact, the US and Israeli intelligence organizations have both determined that Iran does not have a nuclear weapon nor is it attempting to acquire one. Indeed, it has been admitted by military industrial complex firm, The RAND Corporation, that Iran’s military capabilities were largely defensive, not offensive. Even further, not only was Iran well within its rights to do everything it was doing in regards to nuclear energy and technology, the agreement signed with the West was an extraordinary act of conciliation and cooperation. Indeed, Iran bent over backwards to appease the West in its imperialists aims.
That being said, I have argued from the very beginning of the US-Iran nuclear talks that the diplomacy taking place was nothing more than theatre to be used later in the rush to war as evidence that the US did “everything in its power” to avoid confrontation. While the future is impossible to predict, one might reasonably believe that the US will soon sabotage the nuclear deal whose final touches and signatures are due at the end of June 2015.
