A grim and unpredictable future could befall the Middle East if Hamas is destroyed, a top Pentagon official said, warning that another rampaging extremist group akin to the Islamic State terrorists could rise up in its place.
Israel steps up operation in Gaza LIVE UPDATES
While Lt. General Michael Flynn criticized Hamas for exhausting finite resources of the Gaza Strip to build a network of tunnels for the purpose of fighting Israel, he nevertheless said that destroying the group would only lead to a widening of the regional conflict and probably an extremist group fighting in its stead.
“If Hamas were destroyed and gone, we would probably end up with something much worse. The region would end up with something much worse,” Reuters quoted the outgoing head of the Defense Intelligence Agency as saying on Saturday at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado.
The Lt. General then envisioned an Iraq/Syria scenario, where large swathes of northern territories have fallen under control of the Islamist fighters of the Islamic Caliphate: “A worse threat that would come into the sort of ecosystem there… something like ISIS.”
With over 1,000 Palestinians now dead since Israel commenced the ground phase of its 20-day-old operation, a tentative 24-hour ceasefire ended on Sunday with hostilities renewing.
The pause in fighting was intended to open up a humanitarian corridor for food and medical care, but as Israel offered to extend the ceasefire it also warned that it would retaliate if Hamas continued to fire rockets from the Gaza territory.
For its part, Hamas refused to accept the ceasefire deal “without Israeli tanks withdrawing from the Gaza Strip and without residents being able to return to their homes and ambulances carrying bodies and being able to freely move around in Gaza,” their spokesman said.
To many in the world the conflict between Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory looks to be never-ending. And they are worried that the same is now true for the Middle East at large. Flynn’s views were voiced in the midst of a broader assessment of conflicts in the region, which is now crumbling under the weight of terrorism.
Although few people would prefer another Islamic State-style faction taking over Hamas’ place, Flynn made clear that peace between the two warring sides would not happen “in my lifetime.”

The National Assembly of Ecuador has effectively banned bitcoin and decentralized digital currencies while establishing guidelines for the creation of a new, state-run currency.
With 91 votes in favor of the amendments to the country’s existing monetary and financial laws, the National Assembly approved a bill that now goes to President Rafael Correa for signature.
The law gives the government permission to make payments in ‘electronic money’, but decentralized digital currencies like bitcoin will now be prohibited.
The proposed electronic money is to be backed by the assets of the Banco Central del Ecuador, the nation’s central bank. The National Assembly will oversee the new currency while the central bank will develop and integrate it into the broader financial system. The electronic money will operate in tandem with the US dollar, Ecuador’s official currency, although it is not certain what exchange rate will be established.
Following the final tally, the National Assembly issued a statement declaring that the new electronic money would offer benefits to both the underbanked and the broader economy, saying:
“Electronic money will stimulate the economy, it will be possible to attract more Ecuadorian citizens, especially those who do not have checking or savings accounts and credit cards alone. The electronic currency will be backed by the assets of the Central Bank of Ecuador.”
Community voices concern prior to vote
Prior to the debate on amendments that instituted the decentralized digital currency prohibition, members of the local bitcoin community sought to shape the final outcome.

Someone recently asked me, “If my neighbor next door shoots my neighbor across the street, does that give my neighbor across the street the right to come shoot me?”
If someone’s corrupt government does something horrible, are all of its citizens, right down to the infants, to be held responsible? Votes seem to matter very little in the modern world. How would you feel if another country invaded and tried to kill you and everyone you know — all because of what your horrible government does?
You aren’t in charge of those rockets. You aren’t in charge of those decisions.
Back when Occupy protesters rallied, they chanted, “The whole world is watching. The whole world is watching.”
When Palestinians rally, they chant “Where is the world?”
This question is seemingly rhetorical.
The mainstream media knows the answer.

The killing of innocent civilians in Eastern Ukraine resulting from the conduct of major bombing and shelling operations by US supported Kiev regime is not newsworthy. According to official sources, Four hundred and seventy-eight civilians, including seven children were killed and 1392 were wounded in Eastern Ukraine since the outset of the Kiev government’s military crackdown. (See RT, July 1o, 2014)
The casualty figures were released on the 10th of July 2014 by Ukraine’s Ministry of Health.
“The amount on civilian casualties is, unfortunately, greater than the military ones,” Vasily Lazoryshynets, deputy health minister, …
“In the area of the operation in eastern Ukraine, 478 civilians have died, including 30 women and seven children,”he said.
According to Lazoryshynets , a further 1,392 people were injured in the fighting, with 104 women and 14 children among them.
“Two hundred and seventy-nine currently remain in hospital,” he added. (Ibid)
There has been virtually no Western media coverage concerning this human tragedy. The deaths of innocent children resulting from Kiev’s “counter-terrorism operation” have been casually categorized as “collateral damage”.
In early June, according to figures of Ukraine’s National Security Council “200 soldiers and law enforcement officers had been killed and over 600 injured during the so-called “anti-terrorist operation.” (Ibid). The Ministry of Defense reported the same figure of 200 deaths pertaining to soldiers on July 11.
Is the official count of civilian casualties reliable? On June 11, following the release of the figures on casualties by the Ministry of Health, Ukraine’s General Prosecutor Vitali Yarema confirmed that the government was to establish a data bank of persons killed and insured:
“Every death, every physical injury, every body of an unidentified individual found will be entered into the unified register of pre-trial investigations, and each case will be investigated as much as possible,” (quoted by AP, July 11, 2014)
The above figures on civilian casualties are consistent with a ‘leaked” Ministry of Internal Affairs report (July 15, 2014): 496 civilians killed and 762 wounded (updated with data of casualties collected in the period extending from 9-15 July). (see below)
According to this “leaked” MIA document, the death toll of soldiers in the Ukraine Armed Forces would have increased from 200 in early July (reported on July 10th by the Ministry of Health) to 1600 in mid-July (MIA, leaked report, see table below, dated July 15). These rounded up figures suggest that the Kiev government’s figures on soldiers “killed in action” are rough estimates.
The table below which includes the figures of civilian and military casualties included those wounded reported by the Ministry of Internal Affairs (sent to Global Research by a source in Ukraine) are as follows:
- Killed in Action: 1600
- Wounded in Action: 4723
The Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) and its Anti-Terrorism Organization (ATO) oversees the military operation in Lugansk and Donetsk in liaison with the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
The information was officially released on July 15, 2014 bearing the signature of the Arsen Avakov (Minister of Internal Affairs) and V. Gritsak (Head of ATO [Anti-Terrorism Organization]
The authenticity, reliability and source of this leaked report remains to be fully assessed. These figures have not been made public and they are not the object of media commentary. They are, however, compatible with a report published by the Central News Agency Novorossia, Novorus.info (Russian) based on figures of the rebel Donbass forces which point to major military losses by the Kiev regime.
The MIA figures pertain to soldiers “Killed in Action”. They do not address the number of soldiers taken prisoner and/or the number of soldiers who have deserted the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
In contrast, the Novorossia figures do not provide a breakdown of “killed, wounded, prisoners”. According to Central News Agency Novorossia, Novorus.info (Russian):
Total losses in Donbass inflicted to Kiev “punitive operatives” [in Russian каратели] 2 May – 11 July 2014 is 4994 soldiers [ in Russian persons, человек] [killed, wounded, prisoners]
What the MIA leaked report as well as the Novorossia figures convey is the conduct of a large scale military operation by Ukrainian Forces resulting in significant casualties incurred by Kiev government forces. None of this has been reported by the corporate media.
The leaked MIA report suggests heavy losses of military equipment by Kiev forces including a large number of tanks and armored vehicles which have either been captured or destroyed.
The rebels (according to MIA figures) have downed seven aircraft. This information was “leaked” 2 days before the MH17 crash. The reliability of these figures emanating from government sources remained to be determined.
The data from rebel sources cited Novorus.info also indicate sizable losses of military hardware including tanks and armored cars.
TOTAL UKRAINIAN LOSSES [MIA leaked document]
- Killed in Action: 1600
- Wounded in Action: 4723
- Tanks: 35
- Armoured Battle Vehicles: 96
- Artillery: 38
- Aircraft: 7
- Helicopters: 2
- Automobiles: 104
While the reliability of these figures emanating from the government remains to be determined, they nonetheless point to the failure of the Kiev led anti-terrorism operation confirming earlier reports to the effect that government forces have been repealed in Donetsk and Lugansk.

Palestinian medics carry a man injured in Gaza City’s Shijaiyah neighborhood that came under fire as Israel widened its ground offensive against Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip on Sunday, July 20, 2014. Tens of people were killed in Shijaiyah and many more bodies were believed buried under the rubble of homes, health officials said. They are the latest casualties in a nearly two-week conflict that has killed some 380 Palestinians and seven Israelis. (AP Photo/Hatem Moussa)
Gaza City (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) – At least 100 Palestinians and 13 Israeli soldiers were killed on Sunday with Hamas claiming it had captured another, as Israel ramped up a major military offensive in Gaza.
The Palestinian president, meanwhile, called for an immediate meeting of the UN Security Council as regional leaders met in Doha for urgent talks on a ceasefire.
As the Palestinian death toll soared to 438 in the bloodiest single day in Gaza in five years, a spokesman for the enclave’s emergency services said more than a third of the victims were women and children.
The Israeli army said 13 soldiers had been killed inside Gaza on the third day of a major ground operation.
“Over the course of the day, 13 soldiers from the IDF’s Golani Brigade were killed in combat in the Gaza Strip,” a statement said.
Their deaths raised to 18 the number of soldiers killed since the ground operation began late on Thursday. It was the largest number of soldiers killed in combat since the 2006 Lebanon war.
Late Sunday, the armed wing of Hamas claimed it had kidnapped an Israeli soldier, prompting celebrations in the streets of Gaza City and West Bank cities.
“The Israeli soldier Shaul Aaron is in the hands of the Qassam Brigades,” a spokesman using the nom-de-guerre Abu Obeida said in a televised address.
A spokeswoman for the Israeli military said they were aware of the claim and were investigating.
More than half of Sunday’s Palestinian victims were killed in a blistering hours-long Israeli assault on Shejaiya, near Gaza City, which began before dawn and has so far claimed 62 Palestinian lives, with another 250 wounded.
With ambulances unable to reach the area, the International Committee of the Red Cross arranged a brief ceasefire that allowed paramedics to evacuate some of the dead and wounded before hostilities resumed.
Inside Shejaiya, there were hellish scenes of carnage and chaos as a convoy of ambulances moved in, an AFP correspondent said.
Entire buildings were collapsed on themselves or strewn into the streets, while others were ablaze, sending pillars of dark smoke skywards.

Sorry to be so grotesque, but there aren’t a lot of other ways to say it.
The Associated Press article floating around the mainstream media in source after source (surely before it gets buried forever) is simply titled, “Rebel Leader Gives Bizarre Account of Plane Crash”.
How bizarre, exactly?
A top pro-Russia rebel commander in eastern Ukraine has given a bizarre version of events surrounding the Malaysian jetliner crash — suggesting many of the victims may have died days before the plane took off.
The pro-rebel website Russkaya Vesna on Friday quoted Igor Girkin as saying he was told by people at the crash site that “a significant number of the bodies weren’t fresh,” adding that he was told they were drained of blood and reeked of decomposition. [emphasis added]
Of course, the commander will be immediately discredited by western-backed establishment media sources simply because of which side of this conflict he politically stands on.
Not the point, however.
Bodies drained of blood and reeking of decomposition at a fresh crash site?
Who would even think to make something like that up in the first place?
This story is only bizarre until you consider the fact that this situation might be staged.
That explanation might help explain what’s going on in this video below, supposedly taken of the crash site moments after the plane went down, where a man scatters a handful of what look like brand new, unscathed passports from the Netherlands on the ground.
Again…are they wagging the dog to get us in to wider war?
Sure, President Obama seemed all properly concerned today when he mentioned at a press conference that an American was indeed killed on board MH17 and basically advanced the narrative that “Russia did it”.
He wasn’t all that concerned yesterday — right after the crash happened — when the media thought perhaps 23 Americans had been killed, however…at least not enough to cancel his burger photo op.

Christof Lehmann (nsnbc) : Who made the decision that Flight MH17 should fly right above a combat zone when the flight used a more southerly route before? Why did the Ukrainian air traffic controller designate an altitude to flight MH17 that was lower than usual? Why did the Ukrainian authorities close the airspace up to 32,000 ft while the route was declared safe by the ICAO? What are the procedures, who took which decisions, when, and why? Was Flight MH17 lured into a deathtrap?
Was Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur lured into a well-prepared death trap?
Eyewitnesses reported that at least one missile hit the plane that disintegrated in flight, strewing wreckage and bodies over an at least 1,000 x 1,000 meter wide crash site. (mid-section only, the size of the debris field is several square kilometers).
If the 19-year-old Boeing 777-200 with a reportedly flawless maintenance record was struck by a missile, the event will have left unmistakable forensic evidence.
Radar records can be used to determine the flight-path of the missile or the missiles, say experts. The Flight Data Recorder and Cockpit Voice Recorder will tell us more.
Click on the images to enlarge.
The red flags pointing to a missile are:
- The good maintenance record, in-flight disintegration;
- The relatively small parts of wreckage;
- The relatively intact bodies of the 298 passenger and crew, strewn over more than several square kilometers;
- No emergency call; What ever happened, happened very fast, came without a warning and had an immediate, catastrophic effect;
- The plane flew right above the area in Ukraine that has seen the most intense fighting in recent days.
“The likelihood that forensic evidence will be found, that supports the hypothesis that a missile brought down MH17 is above 80 percent” said a professional Danish pilot to us on condition of anonymity.
“The likelihood that it can be determined where the missile was launched from is 75 percent or above”, he said, adding that “none of my colleagues doubts that there was a missile. The question is who fired it, and who is going to get to play the role of the fall guy”.
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Eurocontrol and Unanswered Questions.
Several media reported that Ukrainian authorities had closed the airspace up to 32,000 ft. Malaysia Airlines states that MH17 filed a flight plan, requesting to fly at 35,000ft throughout Ukrainian Airspace which is close to the optimum altitude. Malaysia Airlines continues:
However, an aircraft’s altitude in flight is determined by air traffic control on the ground. Upon entering Ukrainian airspace, MH17 was instructed by Ukrainian air traffic control to fly at 33,000ft. … In April, the International Civil Aviation Organization identified an area over the Crimean peninsula as risky. At no point did MH17 fly into, or request to fly into, this area. At all times, MH17 was in airspace approved by the ICAO.
To sum this up. Malaysia Airlines was sure that it was flying through airspace that was approved by the ICAO.
When MH17 entered Ukrainian airspace its pilots were reportedly ordered to go to 33,000ft instead of 35,000ft, as requested in the flight plan, which still would be 1,000 ft above the 32,000 ft to which the Ukrainian authorities reportedly had closed the airspace. 1,000 ft; Not much.
This poses a number of procedural questions. Since Eurocontrol operates under ICAO rules we called the ICAO in Switzerland.
Call one got us to a receptionist and on to an expert who supposedly could answer questions. What we got was an answering machine and a promise to be called back. Call two got us nowhere, because nobody picked up the phone; not even a receptionist. Call three got us through to the same receptionist again who now tried to refer to a press release.
Not good enough. A press spokesman? No, not good enough either! An expert? Yes, and please one who can answer procedural questions pertaining MH17! You’ve got it, what was your phone number again? I’ll make sure someone calls you back.
The kind receptionist got our number, but we still didn’t get the call which we are waiting for and that, even though our questions are really very simple and should not be difficult to answer for the ICAO experts.
Answers to these questions would especially be helpful “before” asking Eurocontrol and the Ukrainian Ministry of Infrastructure additional questions. Here they are, as simple as the get.
- Which ICAO protocols does Eurocontrol normally follow to assure that it does not designate airspace to planes, that either has been closed by the Ukrainian government or that is dangerously near such closed airspace?
- Which obligations would the Ukrainian authorities have if they closed an airspace below 32,000 ft? Who exactly would have to communicate what, to whom?
Since Eurocontrol and the Ukrainian air traffic controllers, reportedly, designated a flight level only 1,000 ft above reportedly closed airspace; and since MH17 landed in a field, with all of the 298 souls on board killed, possibly due to a missile, I thought that these would be reasonable questions. Questions which should be easy to answer for the ICAO “experts”. Answers to these simple questions would have been helpful before asking Eurocontrol and before asking the Ukrainian government.
The Ukrainian Ministry for Infrastructure, Closed Airspace, Changed Flight Levels, Changed Routes. 298 Dead and A Couple of Unanswered Questions.
Screen capture, courtesy of RT
We called the Ukrainian Ministry for Infrastructure to ask if they could get us through to someone who could answer some of our questions for our readers or direct us to someone who could.
The first call got us through to a receptionist who registered our phone number, called someone on another line and then tried to connect us to someone who possibly could help.
The call was dropped. We called again, no answer. Third time, no answer. The result was the same the other times so we will try again on Monday; maybe we would be more successful if we called from another phone number? The questions we wanted to ask the Ministry were also very simple.
- Which procedures do Ukrainian authorities follow to assure that Eurocontrol and other authorities are appropriately informed about the closure of airspace.
- Whether there was someone at the Ministry who could help us identify the authority and provide contact details at that authority that was responsible for changing the routes of flights through Ukrainian airspace.
- In particular, we would like to know who exactly was responsible for changing the route of MH17 from a path just North of Crimea in the days between July 7 and July 15, to a more northerly route on July 16, and to an even more northerly route, precisely across the airspace, that allegedly had been closed to an altitude lower than 32,000 ft. An area that has seen the most heavy fighting in Ukraine in the days before the tragic crash.
- We would also like to know whether it is correct that the airspace was closed below 32,000 ft, if yes who closed it and why; Who then, would have reported this closure to Eurocontrol, via which channels?
- What are the regulations that guide communications between the Ministry of Infrastructure, the Ministry of the Interior which is in command of the National Guard and the ADS forces in Ukraine, and the Ministry of Defense, with regard to the safety of airspace?
We will be calling the Ministry of Infrastructure again on Monday. By then, they have probably received our e-mail. We included the screen captures of the flighaware software that documents the changed flightpath, so it should be easy to grasp what it’s all about?
We will also call the ICAO again on Monday, because it would be good to know exactly which ICAO procedures Eurocontrol uses or would be supposed to use in a situation as the one that led to the crash of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17. We will of course also call the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Defense, Eurocontrol, Amsterdam Airport, and others who can help us and our readers answer the question whether MH17 was lured into a trap or not.
The truth is usually very simple. It’s first when someone tries to cover it up, that things become complicated. The families of the 298 victims have the right to be told the truth. It’s as simple as that.

Welcome to The Beard World Order: In this episode of the BWO, we shine a light on the murky world of secret societies and clandestine gatherings of the world’s elite. We focus our discussion on the Bilderberg Group: what it is, who attends, how it’s structured, how it’s evolved, and why it’s significant.
Having been forced out of the shadows in the last decade, has the Bilderberg Group waned in influence? Has technology rendered it unnecessary? Why all the secrecy, and what can we the people do to resist these institutions? What would secret societies look like in a free (stateless) society?
Lastly, why aren’t we as creeped out as we once were (and rightfully should be) by hooded politicians in the dark woods performing mock human sacrifices? Does Conan O’Brien really worship Molech, or is the Bohemian Grove just a harmless sleepaway camp for elitist scumbags?

While the world is focused on the questions surrounding the Malaysian flight that crashed in Ukraine on July 17 and the aftermath that will result from it, another campaign of genocide in a long list of campaigns of genocide is taking place in Gaza.
After days of both air and sea-based military strikes against Palestinians living Gaza, Israeli tanks have crossed the border and are now pushing even deeper into the tiny sliver of land.
According to Israeli military statements, Israel has called up 48,000 reserve troops as well as 18,000 additional soldiers which were called upon on Thursday, July 17.
So far, the death toll in Palestine has reached around 260. There has been only fatality on the Israeli side, a soldier who was killed in the northern part of Gaza.
Approximately one third of Palestinian casualties are women and children.
All of this occurs, of course, in the face of immense apathy on the part of the Western public or even unfortunately amidst fanatical, albeit misguided, support.
Yet even the activist communities who would have been focused on drawing attention to the slaughter taking place in Gaza have now been drawn off target as they follow the details of a downed plane in Ukraine, an apparent false flag designed to attract world attention and drum up support for a NATO confrontation with Russia.
Clearly, the world oligarchy is not letting a good crisis go to waste.
With this in mind, it is important to remember the reported words of Benjamin Netanyahu, the now Prime Minister of Israel who stated, in 1989 as the then-Deputy Foreign Minister, that “Israel should have exploited the repression of the demonstrations in China [Tiananamen Square], when world attention focused on that country, to carry out mass expulsions among the Arabs of the territories.”
Netanyahu’s statement is, of course, very similar to the sentiment expressed by former Obama Chief of Staff, Chicago Mayor, and former civilian volunteer for the Israeli Defense Forces, Rahm Emmanuel when he stated that “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that, it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
Thus, it is important to remember that, whenever mainstream press outlets begin coverage of a subject that takes on a life of its own – 24 hour a day coverage and constant updates – that, while it may very well be a legitimate issue, it may just as likely be a sleight of hand.
 The Netanyahu quote is provided by Al-Jazeera. However, the original source, according to Al-Jazeera is the Israeli journal Hotam, November 24, 1989.

Russia and American tensions continue to escalate as Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down Thursday in eastern Ukraine along Russia’s border. Without a full investigation, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain and others in the United States government have reached the conclusion Russia was responsible for the deadly attack. Vladimir Putin and Russia deny any involvement, as the mainstream media and the world at large look to assign blame in this horrific situation.

Thanks to the Mossad, Israel’s “Institute for Intelligence and Special Tasks”, the Hamas was allowed to reinforce its presence in the occupied territories. Meanwhile, Arafat’s Fatah Movement for National Liberation as well as the Palestinian Left were subjected to the most brutal form of repression and intimidation
Let us not forget that it was Israel, which in fact created Hamas. According to Zeev Sternell, historian at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, “Israel thought that it was a smart ploy to push the Islamists against the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO)”.
Ahmed Yassin, the spiritual leader of the Islamist movement in Palestine, returning from Cairo in the seventies, established an Islamic charity association. Prime Minister Golda Meir, saw this as a an opportunity to counterbalance the rise of Arafat’s Fatah movement. .According to the Israeli weekly Koteret Rashit (October 1987), “The Islamic associations as well as the university had been supported and encouraged by the Israeli military authority” in charge of the (civilian) administration of the West Bank and Gaza. “They [the Islamic associations and the university] were authorized to receive money payments from abroad.”
The Islamists set up orphanages and health clinics, as well as a network of schools, workshops which created employment for women as well as system of financial aid to the poor. And in 1978, they created an “Islamic University” in Gaza. “The military authority was convinced that these activities would weaken both the PLO and the leftist organizations in Gaza.” At the end of 1992, there were six hundred mosques in Gaza. Thanks to Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad (Israel’s Institute for Intelligence and Special Tasks) , the Islamists were allowed to reinforce their presence in the occupied territories. Meanwhile, the members of Fatah (Movement for the National Liberation of Palestine) and the Palestinian Left were subjected to the most brutal form of repression.
In 1984, Ahmed Yassin was arrested and condemned to twelve years in prison, after the discovery of a hidden arms cache. But one year later, he was set free and resumed his activities. And when the Intifada (‘uprising’) began, in October 1987, which took the Islamists by surprise, Sheik Yassin responded by creating the Hamas (The Islamic Resistance Movement): “God is our beginning, the prophet our model, the Koran our constitution”, proclaims article 7 of the charter of the organization.
Ahmed Yassin was in prison when, the Oslo accords (Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government) were signed in September 1993. The Hamas had rejected Oslo outright. But at that time, 70% of Palestinians had condemned the attacks on Israeli civilians. Yassin did everything in his power to undermine the Oslo accords. Even prior to Prime Minister Rabin’s death, he had the support of the Israeli government. The latter was very reluctant to implement the peace agreement.
The Hamas then launched a carefully timed campaign of attacks against civilians, one day before the meeting between Palestinian and Israeli negotiators, regarding the formal recognition of Israel by the National Palestinian Council. These events were largely instrumental in the formation of a Right wing Israeli government following the May 1996 elections.
Quite unexpectedly, Prime Minister Netanyahu ordered Sheik Ahmed Yassin to be released from prison (“on humanitarian grounds”) where he was serving a life sentence. Meanwhile, Netanyahu, together with President Bill Clinton, was putting pressure on Arafat to control the Hamas. In fact, Netanyahu knew that he could rely, once more, on the Islamists to sabotage the Oslo accords. Worse still: after having expelled Yassin to Jordan, Prime Minister Netanyahu allowed him to return to Gaza, where he was welcomed triumphantly as a hero in October 1997.
Arafat was helpless in the face of these events. Moreover, because he had supported Saddam Hussein during the1991 Gulf war, (while the Hamas had cautiously abstained from taking sides), the Gulf states decided to cut off their financing of the Palestinian Authority. Meanwhile, between February and April 1998, Sheik Ahmad Yassin was able to raise several hundred million dollars, from those same countries. The the budget of The Hamas was said to be greater than that of the Palestinian Authority. These new sources of funding enabled the Islamists to effectively pursue their various charitable activities. It is estimated that one Palestinian out of three is the recipient of financial aid from the Hamas. And in this regard, Israel has done nothing to curb the inflow of money into the occupied territories.
The Hamas had built its strength through its various acts of sabotage of the peace process, in a way which was compatible with the interests of the Israeli government. In turn, the latter sought in a number of ways, to prevent the application of the Oslo accords. In other words, Hamas was fulfilling the functions for which it was originally created: to prevent the creation of a Palestinian State. And in this regard, Hamas and Ariel Sharon, see eye to eye; they are exactly on the same wave length.

Did Israel collude with ISIS terrorists to create the pretext for the bombardment of Gaza, which has killed almost 200 people, most of them innocent civilians?

Obtained via FOIA by a listener to ClandesTime, this is a list of all the films and TV shows that the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) have participated in the production of, or at least all the ones they saw fit to admit to being involved in. It was quite a lengthy FOIA struggle that led to the release of this document, so credit to the listener for that, and the released document is quite heavily redacted.
Nonetheless, it shows a comfortable, continuous relationship between CAF and Hollywood, and with TV producers in the US and elsewhere – the BBC turns up a number of times. Indeed, documentaries/reality TV make up a significant proportion of the entries in the list. The entertainment movies are interesting because they include the most recent Superman film (Man of Steel) and White House Down, one of a pair of movies from 2013 depicting an assault on the White House in Washington DC. The most amusing entry on the list is The Colony – an apocalyptic climate change cannibalism thriller that I have not seen but which sounds completely dreadful.

We are taught all our lives that our modern political systems are “by and for the people.” In order to justify taking us to war, then, our misleaders have to convince us that war is not a racket, as General Smedley Butler revealed, and is not for the benefit of the industrialists who sell the munitions or the politicians in their back pocket or the financiers that own them both, but in the interest of the average man or woman. In other words, they lie through their teeth.
Find out more about the lies that led us to Libya in 2011, and the cover up of what is taking place there today in this week’s edition of The Eyeopener report.
