Israels intressen i Afrika

En intressant och mycket läsvärd artikel om några av de stora israeliska företagens intressen i och kopplingar till Afrika. Det är interessant att notera att det bland de länder som framförallt nämns är Angola, Sydafrika, DRC, Kongo, Sudan och Sydsudan. Författaren lyckas kanske inte helt att hålla en neutral och balanserad linje, men har inte dessto mindre viktiga poänger.

Israeli War Profiteering in Africa: Follow The Money Trail

One is familiar with the “criminal underworld” of thieves, gangs, drug lords, the Italian Mafia, and other manifestations of organised crime.

More serious is the “criminal overworld” of corrupt politicians, corrupt bankers, corrupt lawyers — in other words the world’s elites. Historically, this is not a new phenomenon. In recent years however, it has become more pervasive and blatant in which privileged members of society fleece the public, evade taxation and lobby vigorously for even greater benefits.

Andrew Huszar: Confessions of a Quantitative Easer

source: online.wsj.se

I can only say: I’m sorry, America. As a former Federal Reserve official, I was responsible for executing the centerpiece program of the Fed’s first plunge into the bond-buying experiment known as quantitative easing. The central bank continues to spin QE as a tool for helping Main Street. But I’ve come to recognize the program for what it really is: the greatest backdoor Wall Street bailout of all time.

Syrien – vem ligger bakom konflikten?

Brottstycken från konflikten i Syrien når svensk massmedia. Det är i första hand de gånger som konflikten når nya höjdpunkter. Men för att förstå nyhetsrapporteringen så är det bra att ha en övergripande koll på hur konflikten egentligen hänger ihop.

James Corbett har en bra genomgång av vem som egentligen ligger bakom konflikten i Syrien. Läs gärna mer på hans hemsida.

Who Is Really Behind the Syrian War?

Förstå Sveriges (spion-)historia

För somliga människor så infinner sig en känsla av frustration över att man inte förstår hur världen hänger ihop. För egen del så återkommer den känslan med jämna mellanrum. Det är många svarta hål i min bild av hur världen fungerar.

En person som har hjälpt mig att minska ett av de svarta kunskapshålen är Anders Jallai. Han berättar om sin forskning om de svenska underrättelsetjänsterna (ja, det finns flera) på sin blogg www.jallai.se.

Man kan tänka att det inte spelar så stor roll vad några spioner sysslar med i halvmörkret och i utkanterna (utanför kanterna) av lagens råmärken. Faktum är att det har stor betydelse för ett lands politiska utveckling. I ledningen av vårt land sitter människor som fattar beslut utifrån information som vi inte känner till. Det i sig är besvärande, men möjligen ofrånkomligt i vår otrygga värld.

Det som är avgjort problematiskt är att vi inte känner de svenska underrättelsetjänsternas egna agendor, om de nu har en sådana. Vilketdera det är så är det svårt att veta. De rapporter som lämnas till regeringen, myndigheter etc. är de skrivna utifrån ett långsiktigt mål att Sverige skall bli ett NATO-land? Inte vet jag. Möjligheten att ta reda på det är extremt begränsad.

I detta informationsmörker lyser jallai.se med sin tydliga ambition att berätta om svenska underättelsetjänsters historia.

Dangerous Crossroads: NATO Missiles in Turkey Pointing at Syria

source: globalresearch.ca
NATO has approved of stationing US-made Patriot missiles along Turkey’s border, for what it claims is “defense.” Over the past two years Syria has been fighting terrorists armed, funded, and equipped by NATO, of which Turkey is a member. Turkey has admitted its role in harboring and providing logistics for foreign fighters flooding across the border into Syria, many of whom are confirmed members of Al Qaeda. Despite this, Syria has gone through extraordinary lengths to avoid a confrontation with Turkey.

Free Syrian Army (FSA) Building Military Base for Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO)

source: globalresearch.ca

TEHRAN (FNA)- The so-called Free Syrian Army, the main armed rebel group fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s government, announced that it has set up two battalions called ‘Martyr Saddam Hussein’ in the cities of Idlib and Deir al-Zour in Syria.

In a blatant act of defiance and in a move aimed at provoking the feelings of Kurds in general and Syrian Kurds in particular, the FSA formed the two battalions.

Analysts believe that these acts, which are condemned and seen as worrisome by Kurds and all Syrians, might push the opponents to retract and backtrack on their moves against Bashar Assad’s government.

Turkey Shells Syria for Sixth Day, Says “Worst Case Scenario”

source: infowars.com

The Turkish military shelled Syria for a sixth straight day Monday after the provincial governor’s office claimed a Syrian round landed in a cotton field near the town of Altinozu in the border province of Hatay.

The CIA-backed Free Syria Army is based in Antakya, the largest city in Hatay. The FSA is armed and funded by the Gulf States of Saudi Arabia and Qatar and receives logistics from the United States. As we noted in September, there is ample evidence that a large number of FSA rebels are in fact members of al-Qaeda.

The Hatay city of Akcakale is a key supply route for the FSA and other so-called rebels.

Turkey Attempts to Trigger a NATO-led War against Syria

Turkey fires rounds into Syria after unknown attackers fire mortars into Turkish border town.

After over a year of harboring foreign terrorists and supporting their operations near and across the Turkish-Syrian border, NATO-member Turkey has claimed it has retaliated with military force against “targets” inside Syria for an alleged attack on Turkish territory that it has blamed on the Syrian government.

Despite heavily armed listed-terrorist organizations operating in large numbers on both sides of the Turkish border with Turkey’s explicit approval and logistical support, the government in Ankara appears to have excluded the possibility that these terrorist forces, not the Syrian military, were responsible for the attack which consisted of mortar rounds the armed militants are known to widely use.

Federal Court Rules In Favour Of Indefinite Detention Of US Citizens

source: infowars.com

A federal appeals court has ruled that the US government can still indefinitely detain citizens should it wish to do so, under the Obama Administration’s National Defense Authorization Act.

The ruling came in the form of an extension of an “emergency” stay of a district court judge’s order that had previously struck down the defence bill’s provisions altogether.

Last month District Judge Katherine Forrest permanently blocked the NDAA provision, saying that “First Amendment rights have already been harmed and will be harmed by the prospect of (the law) being enforced.”

However, the very next day the Obama administration moved to appeal the decision in an attempt to reinstate the indefinite detention provisions. The administration characterized the ruling by Forrest as unconstitutional.

The Anarchist’s Diet by William Green

source: lewrockwell.com

It came to me like a revelation on my morning commute: Bread is a tool of the state. It sounds crazy, I know, but it is clear, and in the weeks since then, the “staff of life,” the very symbol of food itself, has become to me a symbol of the domestication of humankind. It has also suggested one more way I can work to strengthen the individual and weaken the state.

I had recently read The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson and was eliminating grain from my diet. According to Sisson, grains are a recent addition to the human diet that we are not well adapted to and cause many health problems, including obesity and diabetes. He claims that by adjusting our diets and lifestyles to fit our biological make-up, we can regain some of the health and vitality that our primal ancestors had. I had begun to adjust my diet to consist of mostly meats, nuts, eggs, fruits, and vegetables, and I lost weight, gained muscle tone and strength, and felt better than I had in a long time (for example, my previous IBS symptoms had all but disappeared).
