Zionist fascist attack on Gaza’s March of Return: UN should declare USA and Israel criminal states!

 Criminal politics of USA-Israeli fascist twins

Of course, no one needs any crash course to comprehend the nexus between fascist nations like USA and Israel that kill Muslims in Palestine on instruction from US President-now a criminal minded Trump. Nor the world requires any explanation about evolution of Israel into an ultra criminal state with US backing.

Israel is a spoilt boy of ruling American strategists and they once childhood have been used to drink the Palestinian blood and also claim “existential” threat. USA provides terror goods and technology, encourages Israel to commit all crimes against Palestinians humanity as it uses its veto on UNSC to shield the Zionist criminal regime from any punishment for their joint crimes.

And hence USA has proliferated WMD to Tel Aviv illegally and misuses even veto on UNSC to shield the Zionist criminals – now cold blooded Netanyahu.

The rising Zionist criminal acts due to the increased tensions in the conflicting territory of the West Bank have now assumed monstrous proportions. Tensions in the West Bank have spurred violent acts and protests.  The incident in which Zionist forces part of the Israeli military shot a Palestinian man after he had stabbed an Israeli citizen in the West Bank.

In relation to the protests that have arisen, Palestinians have been protesting in the Gaza Strip against Israel. The Great Return March consists of Palestinians protesting against Israel for their refusal of letting refugees return to their homes. This protest march stretches further from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank and Jerusalem. The UK the cause of birth of Israel inside Palestine emphasizes the broad scope of this protest and the step forward it means for Palestine against Israel.

Latest Zionist terror attack on Palestinians took place on weekend. Hamas had planned the Great Return March on March 31 as a show of both force and desperation in the context of a Trump’s Jerusalem gimmick, crisis in Palestinian leadership and the alarming economic and humanitarian conditions in the Gaza Strip, as per a recent UN report.

Clashes erupted as tens of thousands of Gazans protested near the border on Friday, with Israeli forces using tear gas and live fire to force back smaller numbers of demonstrators who approached within a few hundred metres of the heavily fortified border fence.

In addition to the 16 Palestinians killed, more than 1,400 were wounded, 758 of them by live fire, with the remainder hurt by rubber bullets and tear gas inhalation, according to the Gazan health ministry.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas declared Saturday a day of national mourning and in a speech said he held Israel fully responsible for the deaths. Thousands attended funerals for 14 of those killed – two were buried on Friday – with mourners holding Palestinian flags and some chanting “revenge” and firing into the air.

Palestinians are angry and Israel waited to attack when they protest against Zionist oppression. A few firebombs were thrown, a few roadside bombs were laid down, tires were burned and there were a few attempts to cut the fence and cross into Israel.  Was every one of the 15 killed involved in such alleged acts, which, even if they were carried out, did not immediately endanger the lives of the soldiers or other Israelis? Was every one of the roughly 700 wounded by live ammunition involved in these alleged acts? By the time we see detailed testimony and pictures documenting how some of those killed and wounded had been shot in the back, and the festive, civilian atmosphere that prevailed among the marchers before the killings, it will already be yesterday’s news.

That is how Israel marked April 01.

Hamas confirmed in a statement that five of the 16 people killed by Israel on the Gaza border were members of its armed wing.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas declared Saturday a national day of mourning, and a general strike was called across the occupied West Bank. Clashes were also reported in the West Bank city of Hebron between Palestinian protesters and Israeli soldiers.

In New York, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for an “independent and transparent investigation into these incidents”. “This tragedy underlines the urgency of revitalizing the peace process aiming at creating the conditions for a return to meaningful negotiations for a peaceful solution that will allow Palestinians and Israelis to live side by side peacefully and in security,” Guterres’ office said in a statement.

In Brussels, the European Union’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini also called for “an independent and transparent investigation” into Israeli security forces’ use of live ammunition.

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the UK’s opposition Labour Party, condemned Israel and said in a tweet that the “killing and wounding by Israeli forces of civilians demonstrating for Palestinian rights in Gaza is appalling”.

 

US-Israeli expansionism

Upon imposing on Palestine the criminal Jews collected from Europe, USA and UK have equipped Israel with all kinds of terror equipment including WMD. All crimes being perpetrated by Israel in Palestine are obviously on instruction from White House and as such for each crime agonist humanity in Palestine America must take responsibility.

USA-Israel terror twins are busy scheming against Palestine, Arab world, Iran and Turkey. They want to remove the remaining Palestine and make Palestine a part of Zionist Israel.

USA and Israel exploit not only the people but also the UN for its weaknesses and continue to kill Palestinians.

Naturally, USA and Israel employ expansionism as their key policy to terrorize Palestinians who are been forced to face collective punishment without committing any crimes – for reclaiming their lands forcefully confiscated by USA-Israel fascist  duo- on their own lands occupied by Israeli military. Crimes are being committed by Zionist immoral father- the USA.

And therefore terrorist Israel continues to intermittently attack the Palestinians. Apparently, now Israeli military kills Palestinians for fun and derive a lot of sadistic pleasure as revenge for their false claims of European oppression of Jews.

Tightly pursuing “kill Palestine” policy and anticipating trouble, Israeli troops opened fire before the Gaza border protests had even begun. Omar Samour, a 31-year-old farmer, was picking parsley in his field near Khan Yunis early on Friday the March 30 morning when he was killed. Another farmer was injured by shrapnel. Israel’s military later confirmed its tanks had fired at “suspicious figures” on the border and reiterated its right to kill Palestinians who are under their control.

During the protest, many Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces. Qatar reports on the wounded and dead Palestinians during the protest. The Israeli army has released snipers at the protest in response to the Palestinians’ demand for the return of refugees. The wounded and killed Palestinians during the protest have increased animosity in the relationship between the two countries.

As Palestinians observed a day of mourning next day on Saturday, both sides warned of possible escalation in the weeks ahead.

Will this violent yet long-predicted rekindling of the Israel-Palestine conflict trigger a wider crisis drawing in Lebanon, Syria and Iran?

The demonstrations occurred at a crisis in relations between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the European Union and international human rights organizations have called for an independent investigation into violent clashes at the Gaza fence March 30, where as many as 30,000 Gaza residents demonstrated against the Israeli blockade. Fifteen Palestinians were killed and as many as 1,000 injured by the Israeli military. On March 31, the USA swiftly blocked a draft UN Security Council statement calling for an investigation.

UN should not let USA and Israel misuse the UN veto to shield the crimes committed against the humanity.

USA and Israel are keen to expand the Zionist territories in Palestine with expansive proliferation of Zionist settlements considered illegal by the international community global humanity and international law.

 

Zionist fake talks, weak UN

Proliferation of Zionist illegal settlements in Palestine continues unabated even as USA talks about proliferation of nuclear materials by the “terrorists”

The Zionist terrorization of Palestine public is encouraged by Washington. Now the USA under roguish Trump threatens with shifting of embassy to Jerusalem in May, effectively recognising the city as Israel’s sovereign capital while ignoring Palestine’s claims. In short, a spring season of looming flashpoints is now begun.

Israel controls and regulates the so-called peace talks. When it wants Israel suddenly asks the Palestinian leaders to attend a peace talk only to be cut short or abandoned at will. Israel’s rightwing leaders- in fact almost every Zionist leader is right wing criminal- unwilling or unable to contemplate a two-state solution, compound myopic intransigence with a disproportionate use of force.

The absence of a credible peace process underlies the latest confrontation, as happened in 2000 when the second intifada began, and again in 2014. Once again, Hamas and its supporters in Gaza, blockaded by Israel and Egypt and at odds with their Fatah rivals in the West Bank, are using mass civilian protest to end their isolation.

Speaking upon Gaza, the Palestinian president Abbas relayed his disagreement with the US ambassador to Israel regarding his support for illegal Israeli settlers in the West Bank. France relays their thoughts on Israel building settlements on Palestine’s land (Gaza) and the US ambassador to Israel supporting these actions.

Abbas’ direct and indirect threats against Hamas not only dealt a blow to the fragile Palestinian reconciliation effort, but also risked a dangerous escalation.  Last year, Abbas had cut support for electricity to Gaza to pressure Hamas leaders, increasing the hardship of Gaza residents.  The Palestinian budget submitted by Abbas excluded Gaza, unless Hamas leaders accepted his reconciliation proposals. Abbas said March 19, “In my capacity as the president of the Palestinian people, and having born all that I can bear for the sake of unity of the homeland, which was rejected by Hamas and its illegal authority, I have decided to take national, legal and financial actions to preserve our national project. I am confident that the people of Gaza will always support the national project and the higher national interest.”

US misguided Zionist fascism

UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov warned the UN Security Council March 26 that “‘illegal settlement expansion and related activities continue further threatening the viability of the two-state solution and eroding the prospects for peace,’ and that ‘violence and incitement continue to fuel hatred, division, distrust and fear, and continuing terror attacks on Israelis as well as the recent assassination attempt on the Palestinian Prime Minister exemplify the growing risk of destabilization and the empowerment of radicals and extremists.’”

A report on March 16 by UN warned specifically that the Gaza Strip continues to present the greatest risk of escalation alongside an acute humanitarian crisis with the potential for a complete breakdown in service delivery. The report also stresses the need for a changed political reality on the ground, including the resumption by the Palestinian Authority of its full responsibilities for the people, governance and infrastructure of Gaza.

USA always played hide and seek attitude toward Palestine and other Arab nations while promoting Israeli interests.  Trump broke open the real US mindset in favor promoting Zionist criminal regime as the leader of West Asia.

Israeli and international media paid a great deal of attention to an insult that the typically reserved Abbas hurled at David Friedman, the US ambassador to Israel.  The statement reflects the PLO movement’s official position, but they also stressed that they were neither contacted by the US regime for dialogue nor invited to attend the donor conference held at the White House mid-March. On the contrary, Hamas criticized the conference, which it described as a US attempt to absolve Israel of Gaza’s humanitarian and economic problems caused by the Israeli blockade imposed on Gaza since 2007.

The speech revealed a vindictive leader who apparently has no problem punishing the entire Gaza Strip for the March 13 attempted assassination of Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah and General Intelligence Service chief Majid Faraj. Six people were slightly injured when one of two roadside bombs hit Hamdallah’s convoy as it entered Gaza.”

Apparently, the Israeli military establishment was feeling “nervous” in advance of the “Great Return March” protest as well as an unusual threat by the Israeli Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) warning the owners of 20 Gaza bus companies that “you and your families will be held personally responsible” if their buses brought protesters to the border.

This is the usual terrorist threat.

Zionist operations on the Gaza strip have created more tensions to rise between Israel, Palestine, and the USA.

 

Nakba day protests

While Israel celebrates its foundation day, Palestinians also mark Nakba day on 15 May. The six weeks of protests by Palestinians leading up to the 70th anniversary of Nakba day on 15 May, literally the “catastrophe”, as Arabs see it, followed Israel’s declaration of independence on 14 May, 1948.

The six-week protest is scheduled to culminate on 15 May, the day Palestinians commemorate what they call the Nakba (Catastrophe), when hundreds of thousands fled or were driven out of their homes in 1948 when the state of Israel was created.

Israel has long ruled out any right of return, fearing an influx of Arabs that would wipe out its Jewish majority. It argues that refugees should resettle in a future state the Palestinians seek in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza. Peace talks to that end have been frozen since 2014.

Abbas’s spokesman, Nabil Abu Rdainah, said: “The message of the Palestinian people is clear. The Palestinian land will always belong to its legitimate owners and the occupation will be removed.”

Israeli military spokesman Brigadier-General Ronen Manelis said Hamas was using the protests as a guise to launch attacks against Israel and ignite the area. He said violence would likely continue along the border until 15 May. “We won’t let this turn into a ping-pong zone where they perpetrate a terrorist act and we respond with pinpoint action. If this continues we will not have no choice but to respond inside the Gaza Strip,” Manelis told reporters in a phone briefing.

The Israeli security establishment wants to destroy Hamas and Fatah one after another and estimates that Hamas now has some 30,000 troops serving in its various security forces, including the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades and the Nuhba units, trained to operate in Hamas’ network of tunnels. These forces can’t really threaten Israel, but they can interfere with day-to-day life in the country. Hamas has few options left.

Israel wants Hamas, a Palestinian faction and ruling dispensation , to cease its military build-up, including the construction of tunnels and the firing of rockets towards Israel, while Israel’s closure regime must fundamentally change to allow for the recovery and development of the Strip through movement and access of people and goods. It is no coincidence that the military wing of Hamas decided that this week it would hold its largest military drill ever.

Almost all of Gaza’s residents have seen or at least heard these maneuvers, involving all of the Hamas armed forced as well as the militants of various other Palestinian factions. Rockets were fired into the Mediterranean and mortars and guns were fired in the air. Though the gunfire came from light arms, it was so intense that it set off Israel’s Dome missile defense system.

 

UN head calls for investigation

UN chief Antonio Guterres called for an “independent and transparent investigation” into the 16 deaths on Friday and European Union diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini followed suit, calling in a statement for a probe into Israel’s use of live ammunition. “While Israel has the right to protect its borders, the use of force must be proportionate at all times,” she said.

US Senator Bernie Sanders issued a statement condemning the deaths and declaring that Palestinians should be free to protest without fear in a series of tweets.

Many neutral Americans condemned  the Zionist crime. The killing of Palestinian demonstrators by Israeli forces in Gaza is tragic. It is the right of all people to protest for a better future without a violent response.

Meanwhile, the situation in Gaza remains a humanitarian disaster. The US must play a more positive role in ending the Gaza blockade and helping Palestinians and Israelis build a future that works for all,” he added.

The protesters were demanding hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees who fled or were expelled during the war surrounding Israel’s creation in 1948 be allowed to return. “Have you heard any noteworthy objections to the massacre by Israel that happened yesterday in Gaza from those who criticize the Afrin operation?” Erdogan said on Saturday.

Still, Netanyahu on Saturday praised his troops for “guarding the country’s borders” after the shooting deaths. “Well done to our soldiers,” he wrote in a statement. “Israel acts vigorously and with determination to protect its sovereignty and the security of its citizens.”

 

USA blocks UNSC statement on Israeli terror attack

 

USA always come to the rescue of its illegal child Israel and misuses its veto to shield  the Zionist criminal regime from any punitive measures by the UN or  IAEA or ICJ and iCC.

UN chief Guterres has called for an investigation into the use of live ammunition against Palestinians at a protest on Friday

The Security Council held a closed meeting on Friday night to discuss the clashes along the Gaza-Israel border, despite a request from the US and Israel to postpone deliberations for Saturday amid Passover holiday eve, the Times of Israel reported.

As speculated the USA has once again blocked a draft UN Security Council statement urging restraint and calling for an investigation of clashes on the Gaza-Israel border that left 16 dead, diplomats said. Kuwait, which represents Arab countries on the council, presented the proposed statement, which called for an “independent and transparent investigation” of the violence.

The proposed statement also called “for respect for international human rights law and international humanitarian law, including protection of civilians. The draft council statement also expressed “grave concern at the situation at the border”.  And it reaffirmed “the right to peaceful protest” and expressed the council’s “sorrow at the loss of innocent Palestinian lives”.

The draft statement was circulated to the council on Friday. On Saturday, the USA, the illegal father of Israel, raised objections and said it did not support its adoption

Palestine Gaza’s Hamas rulers condemned the US for thwarting the move at the Security Council and accused Washington of being “fully biased” in favour of Israel and encouraging Israel to commit more violence and terrorism against Palestinian civilians.

Council members “called upon all sides to exercise restraint and prevent a further escalation,” the draft said. The proposed statement stressed the need to promote peace between Israel and the Palestinians based on a two-state solution.

 

Israel the greatest terror

Strains are already apparent over Israel’s erection of a Gaza-style iron wall- fence on its northern border and over disputed offshore oil and gas fields.

If the Zionist violence in Gaza continues and spreads, Hezbollah hardliners can be expected to try to intervene. Iran’s leadership has repeatedly warned, in turn, that unlike the last Lebanon war in 2006, it will directly assist Hezbollah in any fight.

In fact, for all crimes it has been committing against humanity, Israel should be eradicated.

Seeking to show its military prowess to third world for new customers for its terror goods, Israel is busy in fueling crises in entire Mideast. And Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s hawkish prime minister, has made plain, to Russia’s Vladimir Putin among others, those current efforts by Iran to create a permanent military presence in Syria and Lebanon cross an Israeli red line. Netanyahu recently underscored his stance by launching air raids on Syrian bases used by Iran and shooting down an Iranian drone.

Thanks to US-Israeli efforts to weaken UN, it has become redundant. Previous checks and balances are missing. It is no use looking to the UN Security Council. When it met in “emergency” session to discuss Gaza, it could not even agree a joint statement. Saudi Arabia, which once pursued its own peace plan, is firmly (though tacitly) in the pro-Israel, anti-Iran camp. Likewise Egypt, where Sisi does not seek or talk about justice for Palestinians continues to block the Palestinians from leaving Gaza Strip even for medical reasons. . .

Urging the Americans to step in as honest broker is a waste of breath, too. On this subject, Donald Trump has shown himself to be as ignorant as he is mad partisan.

On 12 May, Trump is expected to repudiate the Iran nuclear deal – potentially toppling the whole Middle East house of cards.

Israeli forces have conducted an air raid in Gaza, a territory in which Israel and Palestinian militants have been fighting.

Upon murdering both Palestinians and fragile peace talks, Israel now takes the terror course to silence the Palestinians with US help.

Israel has been working near the Gaza border with their new technology. This stresses the Israeli military and their operations that are in conflict with those living in Gaza. Israel wants to minimize the terror and violence acts that are possible through the tunnel that they have bombed. Kenya emphasizes Israel’s priority on their safety.

The Israeli government has rejected calls from the European Union and United Nations for an investigation into the weekend’s violence along Gaza’s border with Israel.  The deadly standoff killed 15 Palestinians and injured over 1,000. The clash came during a mass demonstration with thousands of Palestinians gathering along the border for what was supposed to be a peaceful protest against Israel’s decade-old blockade of the territory.

The Australian relays their perspective on Palestine’s struggle for freedom and what it means for the future between Israel and Palestine and their relationship in an international scope. Australia was one of the first countries to recognize Israel in 1947, but their resolution to the people of Palestine is long overdue. Australia wants Israel to resolve their tensions with the Palestinians.

Palestinian youths gathered along the Gaza-Israel border on Saturday, though the area remained mostly quiet, a day after deadly violence broke out in one of the biggest Palestinian demonstrations there in years.

In the southern Gaza Strip, residents said Israeli troops fired warning shots towards a crowd of youths, some of whom burnt tyres. Health officials said 13 people were wounded and an Israeli military spokesman said he was checking the details.

Hundreds also gathered on Saturday in Northern Gaza to pay their respects to at least 16 Palestinians killed and hundreds wounded during Friday’s violence.

Images posted online showed hundreds of mourners carrying caskets of some of the slain Palestinians through the streets of Gaza City as relatives were pictured weeping and crying for their loved ones.  After burying 19-year-old Abdul Fattah Abdul Nabi, his family gathered in a tent to receive mourners, watching and rewatching a video of the moment they say Israeli soldiers shot him in the back of the head, the Washington Post reported.

Israeli security forces killed at least 16 Palestinians and injured more than 1,400 people who had mobilized as part of Friday’s annual Land Day protests, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health. The ministry also noted that at least 773 Palestinians were wounded with live ammunition.  Dr Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesperson for the ministry, said that “most of the dead were aged between 17 and 35”. He also told the Guardian that the remainder of the wounded, some of whom were in a critical condition, had been “shot with live ammunition”.

The Israeli army was unable to confirm how many live rounds were fired by its snipers after claiming to know where “every bullet landed in Gaza”.

Mark Regev, Israel’s ambassador to the UK, defended Israel’s response on Saturday, saying it was proportionate and blaming Hamas, which controls Gaza, for Friday’s violence. “We can’t allow our border to be porous, we can’t allow the Hamas activists to tear down our fence and enter Israel.”

Tens of thousands of Palestinians had gathered on Friday along the fenced 65km frontier, where tents were raised for a planned six-week protest pressing for a right of return for refugees and their descendants to what is now Israel. The Israeli military estimate was 30,000.

Families brought their children to the encampments just a few hundred metres from the Israeli security barrier with the Hamas-run enclave. Football pitches were marked out in the sand and scout bands played. But as Friday wore on, Israeli soldiers on the other side kept watch from dirt mound embankments and shot at the protesters as violence broke out.

The Palestinian ambassador to the UN, Riyad Mansour, described Friday’s violence as a “heinous massacre”. He said that Palestinians expected the UN Security Council to “defuse this volatile situation” and to “shoulder its responsibility”. A senior UN official also told the Security Council that the situation in Gaza “might deteriorate in the coming days” and called for civilians to not be targeted.

 

Angry Turkey calls Netanyahu a mad fellow

People of Palestine are under Zionist existential threat. Hospitals in Gaza Strip face emergency situation without enough medicine and infrastructure to deal with the constant inflow of wounded Palestinians.

Turkey pretests against the Zionist fascism against the people of Palestine. Zionist criminal Netanyahu faces serious carnal charges and is likely to be out of job but he wants use the terror opportunity to impress the Zionist President to  save him

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who leads the only Islamist government in the world, on Sunday lashed out at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an escalating war of words between the two over the killing of 16 Palestinians in Gaza.

Erdogan called Netanyahu a “terrorist” after the Israeli Prime Minister said he would not be “lectured to on morality” from a country that “has been bombing civilians indiscriminately.” “Hey Netanyahu! You are an occupier. And it is as an occupier that are you are on those lands. At the same time, you are a terrorist,” Erdogan said in a televised speech in Adana, southern Turkey. “What you do to the oppressed Palestinians will be part of history and we will never forget it,” he said, adding: “The Israeli people are uncomfortable with what you’re doing.

The spat began on Saturday when Erdogan condemned Israel over its “inhumane attack” in Gaza after a major demonstration there led to clashes that saw Israeli forces kill 16 Palestinians.

The violence broke out on Friday after tens of thousands of people in the Gaza Strip marched near the Israeli border. More than 1,400 people were wounded, 758 of them by live fire, with the remainder hurt by rubber bullets and tear gas inhalation, the Gazan health ministry said. “I strongly condemn the Israeli government over its inhumane attack,” Erdogan said during a speech in Istanbul.

Israeli ultra fanatic Benjamin Netanyahu hit back:  The fanatic joked that his the most “moral army” in the world will not be lectured to on morality from someone who for years has been bombing civilians indiscriminately”.

Those comments prompted Erdogan’s latest response.

Turkey had been a close ally of Israel for years until it comprehended the Zionist agenda against Islam, Palestine, Mideast and Iran.

 

Observation

Palestinians have not yet reorganized the basic truth that Israeli Jews are nuts and mad and they can misbehave the most unpredictably by pouncing upon Muslims as the jungle beasts do.

Jews are the worst kind of insane criminals in the world and they do anything and go to nay limit because they are mad jungle bosses. Americans who gave birth to Israel cannot be any better. .

It is most unfortunate that the USA continues to be the chief problem for world peace. Its veto should be sacked.  The USA blocked a draft UN Security Council statement urging restraint and calling for an investigation of clashes on the Gaza-Israel border that left 16 dead, diplomats said.

The Israel and Palestine controversy has been going on for quite a while and their tensions are only increasing due to the many territorial and settlement issues. Many countries are relaying their own thoughts on how their tensions are affecting the international committee in terms of support and resolution. The increasing tensions range from protests to violent acts that are harming citizens in both nations.

Israel and Palestine currently disagree on many issues, ranging from Zionist terror attacks to legislation to settlements. Recent actions are contributing to the tension between the two countries and this tension has compelled international media outlets to relay their own perspectives.

The initiative behind the march defies the Israeli policy of disconnecting Gaza from the rest of the Palestinians. However, Gazans are not wretched and passive charity cases but a politically aware public

Repressing the fight for national rights and equality is not an exact science. Even after 70 years of experience, one cannot know whether killing unarmed protesters who did not endanger a single Israeli soldier will deter and thin the numbers of demonstrators in the coming weeks – or exactly the opposite.

But even 70 or 50 years of experience in repression is not enough for the army and the politicians to abandon their view of the Palestinians as marionettes of Hamas, just like they were seen as puppets of Fatah and the Palestine Liberation Organization in the past. Tens of thousands of unarmed people (even if some of them do belong to various Palestinian security forces) do not participate in a mass march, despite Israeli warnings, simply because they obey Hamas and its sophisticated tricks. If the Israeli military and the political leadership prefer to present it in this light to their home arena, for their own reasons, it demonstrates contempt for the Israeli public. If they really believe this, it is a chronic lack of understanding of the situation, which is characteristic of unelected rulers and regimes.

Gaza crisis is very important to Israel and USA for dictating terms to Arab world and Iran at the same time. How Gaza clashes could ignite flashpoints all over the Middle East

The Zionist army allows itself to violate international law and shoot at unarmed civilians, and even kill them, because Israeli society accepts this as an a priori act of defense, without investigating the details. And despite a few feeble condemnations, even governments around the world do not represent an obstacle to deter Israel. The March of Return – whether it continues or not – declares to Israel and the international community that the residents of the Gaza Strip are not wretched and passive charity cases, but a politically aware public.

The Israeli decision to use lethal means to repress a popular civil action is a political and not military-logistical choice. Despite the authenticity of the march’s message for return, the Israeli government and army are not afraid that the fulfillment of the right of return is now on the agenda. This is not the reason they gave soldiers orders to shoot to kill – the means that in the short and medium term is the surest to repress the protest.

It can be assumed that the Israel military forces and its spokespeople know how to provoke Palestinians and respond to any development: If the March of Return protests come to an end, it will be attributed to the iron fist used on the first day. If the demonstrations continue, they will explain that the fist was too weak.

The initiative behind the march shakes the stability of the central pillar of Israeli policy and its plans to prevent the Palestinian national project by severing the Gaza Strip from the rest of Palestinian society in the West Bank and Israel. This separation, gradually carried out over 27 years, not only directly caused the terrible economic and environmental deterioration, but also aided the creation of two Palestinian governments – which has also served Israeli intentions quite well. The march is a social and political initiative that is trying to bypass the two-government obstacle.

Even 70 or 50 years of experience in repression is not enough for the army and the politicians to abandon their view of the Palestinians were seen as puppets of Fatah and the Palestine Liberation Organization in the past. If the Israeli military and the political leadership prefer to present it in this light to their home arena, for their own reasons, it demonstrates contempt for the Israeli public. If they really believe this, it is a chronic lack of understanding of the situation, which is characteristic of unelected fanatic rulers and regimes. Israeli rulers are criminals.

It’s not Palestinian nationalism that is dying as being the view expressed by many fanatics in Israel, who attribute it to the political failures of Palestinian President Abbas. What is dying is the traditional organization that represented it until now – the PLO – and Hamas is failing in its attempts to become the alternative that is acceptable for everyone. Israel plays with fire  as it uses even  Hamas to its own advantages.

Palestinian society, which is sick and tired of its leadership and the political split as decided by USA-Israel fascist duo, is teeming with initiatives. People are feeling around for something new that will break down both the physical and psychological barriers that divide the various parts, while basing it on the components of national Palestinian identity acceptable to all.

The March of Return– whether Israel continues with its fatal repression of Palestinians, or not – is   a step in the right direction. As with many initiatives for mass action, it is hard to know how the March of Return came about. Some of those behind the initiative are members of the relatively young generation who are furious over their groups’ descent into infighting. A few of them gained experience as activists against the internal Palestinian split in 2011 and discovered that their work to end it was not enough to develop momentum. The political groups – Hamas, Fatah and the smaller organizations – adopted the initiative. This is not a trick but political awareness.

World urgently requires an Islamic Army to protect the world from imperialist attacks and defend Muslims and their nations from enemy attacks.  Turkey alone is capable of taking up  that  difficult challenge and provide stable  leadership to Islamic world and world at large. Saudi Arabia and Iran, among the Muslim nations, are still under US-Israeli control.

UN should declare criminally fanatic nations like USA and Israel criminal states!

North Korea for
 conditional denuclearization!

 – Dr. Abdul Ruff Colachal

______

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un made a surprise visit to China recently for 4 days and expressed his views on the nuclear issue, ahead of the planned summits with Moon and US President Donald Trump. The North’s ruler met with Chinese President Xi Jinping during their first summit. His trip to Beijing was seen aimed at securing more bargaining chips ahead of his meeting with Trump, which will take place by May.

The summit came amid frayed Beijing-Pyongyang relations in the wake of China’s participation in the international drive to impose intensifying sanctions on the North over its nuclear weapons programs.

The North’s leader expressed his commitment to giving up nuclear weapons during his meeting with Xi, adding that its denuclearization hinges on Seoul and Washington taking “progressive and synchronous measures

According to Chinese media reports, Kim Jong-un, in a manner to appease  USA, has  offered to give up his nuclear weapons during a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing if Seoul and Washington take “phased” steps for normalization,  peace and stability.   “We voluntarily offered dialogue to the South and the USA, and have since taken appropriate steps to ease tension on the peninsula,” Kim was quoted as saying during the summit by China Central Television (CCTV).

The remarks came after Xi expressed words of encouragement for the ongoing peace gestures from Pyongyang. Starting this year, North Korea has suspended its missile and nuclear tests, delivering its strong determination for building peace on the peninsula by offering to hold talks with Presidents Moon Jae-in and Donald Trump. Xi said China is fully supportive of the ongoing thaw in inter-Korean relations. The Chinese leader also pledged to join hands with Kim to build lasting peace on the peninsula.

The USA is keens to showcase its super power military supremacy to any nation that disobeys it by carrying out its campaign for “maximum pressure” to make the North abandon its nuclear arsenal and bring it to the negotiation table. Washington has also vowed to keep up its pressure campaign until the repressive regime takes sincere steps toward denuclearization 

Apparently, US President Trump agreed to meet with Kim after South Korean envoys who met with the North’s leader in early March relayed Kim’s expression of his commitment to denuclearization. A summit between USA and North Korea has been fixed for May

As South Korea and North Korea continue to threaten each other, USA is also playing subversive role in the Korean peninsula. USA provides security cover to South Korea while North Korea faces American imperialist threat on permanent basis.

Fearing a possible surprise terror attack from USA or NATO, North Korea has been busy strengthening its security by spending huge resources on military preparedness.

The North Korea has conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test in September last year. It also launched three intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) last year, which analysts say are capable of reaching the US mainland. This angered Trump and he called the NK leader a “little man” a personal insult the president of North Korea. Kim and Trump exchanged personal insults and bellicose rhetoric, raising fears about war on the divided peninsula.

North Korea’s advancement of its nuclear and missile programs heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula last year. Pyongyang has been slapped with tough sanctions over its provocations.

This is the first time Kim has taken an overseas trip since taking power in 2011. His Beijing visit and the summit were conducted under tight security. Kim returned to Pyongyang the same day after a four-day visit to China.  “Once the USA and South Korea take phased and simultaneous measures in response to our peace efforts, the issue of denuclearization of the peninsula can be resolved,” the young strongman said.

Both China and North Korea have not revealed the details of the dialogue between Kim and Xi. The presidential office said Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi will visit Seoul, to share information on the summit. For the meeting with Xi, Kim was accompanied by his wife, Ri Sol-ju, and a group of high-ranking officials. They included Choe Ryong-hae, vice chairman of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea, and the regime’s national intelligence head, Kim Yong-chol. Both sides will likely share details on their roles for resolving the issue of North Korea’s denuclearization.

It was Kim’s first meeting with a foreign head of state, and also his first overseas diplomatic mission, since he took power in 2011. The biggest concern is that China may reconsider sanctions it has imposed on the North, and this could possibly lead to the revival of Cold War rivalry ahead of Kim’s summit with US President Donald Trump slated for May.

Xinhua reported Xi as stating that China shares the goal of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula through dialogue.


NK reports on summit

The Korea Central News Agency (KCNA), the regime’s propaganda mouthpiece, also reported on the Beijing-Pyongyang summit.  For four days from Sunday, Kim paid an informal visit to China upon Xi’s invitation.

Kim took a train to Beijing. On Monday, a green train with yellow stripes, which looked similar to the one his father, Kim Jong-il, used to take before passing away, was seen pulling into a station in Beijing. The train is known to have carried Kim and the special delegation to the Chinese capital.  After arriving in Beijing, Kim and Ri transferred to a sedan. A convoy of vehicles carrying the North Korean delegation was escorted by 21 motorcycles before reaching the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse, according to the KCNA.  They then made their way to the summit venue, the Great Hall of the People, located on the western edge of Tiananmen Square where Xi welcomed Kim.

Chinese media reported Kim went to Zhongguancun, known as the “Silicon Valley of China”. The KCNA also said Kim and Xi will meet again in Pyongyang shortly.

It was Kim’s first meeting with a foreign head of state, and also his first overseas diplomatic mission, since he took power in 2011. The summit took place before the meetings arranged between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April, and between Kim and Trump in May.

While Cheong Wa Dae remained quiet about the visit Monday and Tuesday, it said Wednesday the presidential office “received prior notification (from China) with regards to Kim’s visit.” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the Chinese government had briefed the Trump administration about the visit Tuesday, according to the Washington Post.  “We forecast that Kim’s statements and the dialogue between North Korea and China will exert a positive influence on North Korea’s summits with the South and the U.S.,” a senior official at Cheong Wa Dae told reporters.

According to the news agency, Xi pledged China will continue to play a constructive role in the issue and work with all parties including North Korea.
“It appears North Korea attained an opportunity to seek China’s support _ this will give Pyongyang more weight in its summit with Washington,” Lee Tai-hwan, chief of Sejong Institute’s Center of China Studies said.  “This is also in line with the wishes of China, which holds leverage over North Korea. It may have considered a Pyongyang-Washington summit without a prior meeting with Beijing as inappropriate.”

Pyongyang’s denuclearization will be in the hands of Washington, another analyst said. “The keys Washington holds to resolving North Korea’s nuclear issue accounts for 80 percent, while those of China account for 20 percent,” Kim Dong-yub, professor at Kyungnam University said. China’s stance on North Korea is emerging as a crucial factor in reviving diplomacy over the North’s nuclear weapons program following the summit between Kim Jong-un and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing.

The Korean denuclearization talks 

 

China’s stance on North Korea is emerging as a crucial factor in reviving diplomacy over the North’s nuclear weapons program following the summit between Kim Jong-un and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing. Xi pledged China will continue to play a constructive role in the issue and work with all parties including North Korea. China holds leverage over North Korea. It may have considered a Pyongyang-Washington summit without a prior meeting with Beijing as inappropriate. Kim also reportedly spoke about the regime’s willingness to denuclearize.

The keys Washington holds to resolving North Korea’s nuclear issue accounts for 80 percent, while those of China account for 20 percent. This is because sanctions and military threats that Pyongyang faces will only be resolved through Washington’s lifting of the measures and normalizing relations with Pyongyang

China has become a player in the game. It may hold greater hidden keys than what it appears to have.”  “This is because sanctions and military threats that Pyongyang faces will only be resolved through Washington’s lifting of the measures and normalizing relations with Pyongyang

 

It was Kim’s first meeting with a foreign head of state, and also his first overseas diplomatic mission, since he took power in 2011. Kim said he made his first overseas visit to China to honor the friendship between the two nations. “I believe my first meeting with General Secretary Xi Jinping will yield abundant fruits of the North Korea-China friendship and facilitate peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula,” Xinhua cited Kim.Kim’s visit has taken place to take the traditional North Korea-China friendship with long historical roots to a new, higher level according to the demands of a new era.

The summit took place before the meetings arranged between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April, and between Kim and Trump in May.

Kim’s surprise visit to China raised both hopes and concerns among North Korea watchers. Their biggest concern is that China may reconsider sanctions it has imposed on the North, and this could possibly lead to the revival of Cold War rivalry ahead of Kim’s summit with US President Donald Trump slated for May.

Kim noted “China has become a player in the game. It may hold greater hidden keys than what it appears to have.””Kim Jong-un invited Xi to visit Pyongyang at the latter’s convenience, with Xi accepting the invitation,” the state-run media said.

 

Meanwhile, South Korea and North Korea are holding high-level talks now to discuss details about preparations for an inter-Korean summit slated for late April. “We will closely consult with the North to make the summit a success,” Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, the South’s chief delegate, told reporters before leaving for the meeting place Panmunjom. The minister said that the South is anticipating that the date for the summit could be set during the talks.

The meeting comes as South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un plan to hold a summit in April at Panmunjom after more than a year of tensions sparked by the North’s nuclear and missile programs.

The upcoming inter-Korean summit will likely serve as a critical venue for discussions to resolve the North’s nuclear issue. The North considers a reconciliatory efforts with South would lead to eventual cordial relations between the two Koreans, extended a rare olive branch to Seoul in January, as Kim expressed his willingness to send athletes to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics held in the South last month.

Pyongyang’s denuclearization will be in the hands of Washington, an analyst said. “The keys Washington holds to resolving North Korea’s nuclear issue accounts for 80 percent, while those of China account for 20 percent,” Kim Dong-yub, professor at Kyungnam University said. “This is because sanctions and military threats that Pyongyang faces will only be resolved through Washington’s lifting of the measures and normalizing relations with Pyongyang,” he said.

This echoes earlier remarks made by Kim in a meeting with South Korean envoys in Pyongyang.

Kim’s statements and the dialogue between North Korea and China will exert a positive influence on North Korea’s summits with the South and the USA.

USA permits its ally Israel to possess WMD but opposes Iran and North Korea to have the same nuclear facility. Americans and allies should not have proliferated nuclear material to Israel to make also a fascist nation. .

 Instead of bullying Iran and North Korea, USA would do better in f it  sincere strives for total denuclearization of the entire world. But for this USA must also dismantle its own dangerous WMD.

China shares the goal of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula through dialogue but it should also be ready dismantle its WND.

President Putin and Russian foreign policy goals

 President Putin and Russian foreign policy goals

-Dr. Abdul Ruff Colachal

With his outstanding electoral win as President for the fourth term in modern Russia in a highly dramatic manner unheard in democratic poll history, President Putin would now feel in total control of the country’s system and opposition.

At the very outset it needs to be stressed that Putn does not believe in western ideas of democracy of ruling a nation for maximum of two terms and stand down thereafter from entertaining further political ambitions.

Unless the previous Presidency polls in Russia, the election this time around was fairly predictable as people longed to see Putin making Russian presidency stronger. Unlike the self-boast claims of highly inflammable and erratic US President Donald Trump about “USA first” – as if USA had never pursed that policy before him and advanced interests of the world, Putin never made such foolish statements but  strictly pursued “Russia first” policy vehemently. One achievement is the recovering the Crimea region from Ukraine by ignoring all objections of USA and allies. Now Russia dictates terms to USA in Syria.

Putin could claim that he is fulfilling the demands of the people wanting     a strong presidency that only he can provide. Like in Saudi Arabia the rulers just  do not entrain  extreme  experiments to make a sea change in the system for the  anti-royal  fringes to remove the  kingdom and establish their own dictatorship with US-Israeli backing in the name of so-called democracy, Russia also is keen  their system is not dismantled as per the designs of anti-Islamic forces. Moreover, the West suspects President Putin might revert Russia back to Soviet era system that would upset entire agenda of the West that after having succeeded in a big way, into eventual jeopardy. They keep calculating the post-Putin Russia but Putin still remains in full control.

A lively debate is on in the West and elsewhere about Putin’s’ new foreign policy if any. Obviously, President Putin would choose his course very carefully and he is quite capable of that.

Russia, like any other big nation, has its own fancies about its place in the world but the world turned out to be more unpredictable and complicated than many Russians thought.

True, Russian economy received a jolt in the form of economic terrorism from USA and EU known as “sanctions” on account of Crimea annexation.

Apparently, Russian leadership did not expect the West to introduce strong sanctions after Crimea and to stick with them for years though Russian action is final. However, China compensated the Kremlin for the huge economic loss in Western investments and trade deficits.

President Putin may have expected Hillary Clinton to win the US elections and become a tough anti-Russian president but the election of Donald Trump gave some hope so improvement in bilateral ties. Russia expected fanatic Donald Trump to become a soft Russia-friendly president. Russia did not expect the EU to sudden collapse under the weight of its own in internal contradictions at the wake of Brexit.

Arguably Trump has an unshakeable belief that he is uniquely positioned to defuse a dangerous standoff with Moscow by courting Putin.

Trump congratulated Putin on his election victory, and spoke in an upbeat manner about talks he hoped to hold with him soon, billing their meeting rather like a Reagan-Gorbachev summit from the 1980s. This is the latest example of his unusual deference to Putin, following the 2016 election in which US intelligence agencies assessed the Russians intervened on his behalf. But the White House says that Russia assaulted American democracy, used a nerve agent in an attack on the soil of its closest ally, Britain, and just held an election that cannot be judged free and fair. Yet the President did not bring up any of those issues during a telephone chat with Putin, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.

An innocent looking Barack Obama did it in 2012 by greeting Putin, as he tried to keep his Russia “reset” strategy alive. But any interactions between Trump and Putin are closely watched given the special counsel investigation into Russian election meddling.

Putin meanwhile is one of the groups of autocrats and global strongmen that Trump seems to admire — an odd quirk in an American President who often appears tougher on allies than US foes, except that he promotes aggressively the Zionist expansionist agenda in Palestine against the UN demand to promote Palestine and International Law condemning all Zionist crimes against humanity. . .

Russia expects Ukraine to collapse under the weight of its unreformed economy, corruption and unruly political passions because US support for East European nation with communist background is not genuine.

Putin expects the settlement in Syria, where Russian military plays important role to help Assad stay alive and kicking while Syrians keep dying  for him, to be a lot easier now.

Russian foreign policy predictions have occasioned a lively foreign policy debate in Moscow as well – on the meaning of Donald Trump, on the fate of the European Union, on what to expect from China, from Near Abroad, on what next in Syria and Donbas.

There has been a constant demand from liberals – both foreign policy thinkers and economic technocrats – to improve the relations with the West for purposefully advancing its national interest, starting possibly from stabilizing the situation in Donbas. They fail to recognize the fact the USA opposes any better ties with Russia and China. The processes of dismantling of mighty Soviet Union and Socialist system in the entire east Europe, braking down of Berlin Wall, etc were enacted by Michael Gorbachev  in order to improve relationship with USA and Europe but alas only USA won the Cold war and Eastern Europe and made Russia feel for the loss of great nation status.

Yet, former finance minister Alexei Kudrin succinctly argues, “if we want our economy to grow, and grow smartly, we need to improve the relations with the West.” The West remains the best source for modernisation. The need for technocratic modernisation – the need to master the world of artificial intelligence, blockchains and other 21st century wonders – seems to be understood also by President Putin, at least intellectually, if not passionately.

 

Stabilization in Donbas, according to this camp, is the best place to start. Progress there would help to restart the relations with the European Union, and that might be of help at a time when the relations with the US are deadlocked because Russia has become a domestic issue in the US.

 

However, most of Russians see though the American-Israeli straggles to belittle Russia and simply oppose and even hate USA ad Western civilization. Then this dovetails with a foreign policy argument that holds that Russian foreign policy is overstretched and would benefit from ending a few conflicts.

 

The other camp in Moscow, thus, remains skeptical. They fear the West will view ‘concessions’ from Russia as a sign of weakness; or that rapprochement with the West would make Russia’s non-Western allies – from Iran to China – fear Russian ‘betrayal’.

 

Iran has already experienced such treatment in its relations with Russia in the 1990s and early 2000s, when Moscow used Tehran as a mere bargaining chip in its relationship with the USA. The same way USA used Pakistan a tool to improve relations with China after its success in misusing Islamabad to gain access to petrodollars n Arab world.

.

However, the sceptical camp is being advised by the West to agree on one crucial point: foreign policy indeed needs to change. Saudi Arabia is also following their footsteps without having any idea about the long term outcomes

 

Anti-Russia rhetoric and tactics continue to work in the west. They also work in the Middle East, where Russia now effectively owns the conflict in Syria and, to stay on top of the diplomatic process, it needs effective relations with all regional powers. They do not work in the West, because there, Donald Trump is now the disruptor-in-chief; and an unpredictable one at that. But USA is keen to see that the primitively anti-Western rhetoric and tactics that centre on disruption do not work anymore in Moscow. This requires predictable behavior. Surprise invasions have done their job, done it well in Moscow’s eyes – but their time seems to be far from over.

 

Such was the state of the debate when, in the afternoon of March 4, a former GRU employee and British double agent Sergei Skripal was found unconscious on the bench in Salisbury, poisoned with the nerve agent Novichok, the only known earlier producer of which was USSR/Russia. But now any country could produce and sell. Israel is known for such mischievous endeavors and USA diplomatically supports all secret Zionist operations.

 

UK quickly blames on Russia and personally on Putin as their usual strategy. This crime remains puzzling. Murders of exchanged spies – as Skripal was – have not been part of Moscow’s behavior so far. Was the only aim to kill a traitor? In that case, most other means would have been simpler than nerve agent.

 

UK might have expected a poor show by Puitn in the presidency poll.  The domestic political incentives are likely. Could it have been indeed ordered by President Putin – with full knowledge of international implications? Or was it the job of some powerful Russian agencies without Putin’s knowledge, or maybe sanctioned only in very broad terms? In that case, will the Kremlin manage to distance itself from them, and do so with the level of publicity that would satisfy the West?

 

Such questions are raised in the West. No one knows for sure who does what.

 

Of course the issue is just starting point for Putin to just ignore and move on further with prudent foreign policy goals to remobilize entire anti-West and anti-West world to fight colonialism capitalism, imperialism, fascism and US brand Zionism.

The inconsistency in the Trump regime’s approach to Russia adds to uncertainty about how the West will respond to Putin’s growing willingness to exercise power beyond his borders.

Western policy toward Russia is not going to change dramatically for years. .

By shuffling the team members, Trump looks for opportunities to advance the unilateral America to impose its military prowess on the world stage.

Russian voters are right: President Putin alone can do that and assure peace prosperity for entire world. .

Russia warns USA against destabilization of Syria

Russia warns USA against destabilization of Syria

Russia has called on the United States to unconditionally abandon its plans for a strike against Syrian government forces and Damascus, Sergei Ryabkov stated, answering the journalist’s question. “We’ve warned and warned the US that these plans must be unconditionally refused. Any such unlawful use of force, similar to what happened almost a year ago at the Shairat air base, would be an act of aggression against a sovereign state, as defined by the relevant article of the UN Charter,” he said.

Sergei Ryabkov believes that if the situation in Syria and, in particular, Eastern Ghouta changes for the better, opponents to a peaceful resolution to the conflict could incite the international community by sabotaging this process, possibly by using chemical weapons. “The situation in Eastern Ghouta has changed radically for the better,” Sergei Ryabkov told reporters on Tuesday. He drew attention to the fact that tens of thousands of people had already left the danger zone. “All this, of course, infuriates, in the truest sense of the word, the opponents of the government in Damascus; they are looking for new pretexts for attacks on us and on Syria,” Ryabkov said. “In this situation, of course, any provocations are possible, and we need to be prepared. Provocations could include staging the use of chemical weapons by government troops,” Ryabkov said. The staged ‘chemical attacks’ will continue in Syria as Syrian troops advance, he added.

Earlier, US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley said that the US was prepared to act on the use of chemical weapons in Syria. According to him, the United States struck at the Shairat airbase, after a chemical attack in Syria’s Khan Sheikhoun on April 4, 2017, as the UN Security Council “was unable to take action.”

London still refuses to cooperate with Moscow in the investigation of the poisoning of the former Russian double-agent Sergei Skripal, which Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov has described as a massive provocation. “The British, acting with explicit malicious intent, have delivered some accusations. Once again, without backing them in any way with material evidence, with any kind of basis, rejecting cooperation, and, most outrageously, successively depriving us of consular access to Russian citizen Julia Skripal, who, as we understand, is in a critical state,” Ryabkov told reporters. “All this is nothing more than a large-scale, multi-layer provocation, which is being conducted via a whole series of unlawful methods,” the deputy head of the Russian Foreign Ministry added.

Moscow once again declares that neither Russia nor the USSR had a program for the development and production of chemical weapons under the conventional name “Novichok,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov stressed.

Moscow has called on the OPCW to provide Russia with all information regarding its reasoning for responding positively to London’s request for the Skripal’s case, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters.

The OPCW experts arrived in the UK, where they would meet with the leadership of the military, scientific and technical laboratory in Porton Down and with the representatives of Scotland Yard to discuss the transfer process for testing the samples of the substance with which Skripal and his daughter were poisoned.

Earlier, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said that it was “highly likely” that Russia was responsible for the Salisbury incident and later announced a package of anti-Russia measures, including the expulsion of Russian diplomats from the country, and the suspension of bilateral contacts between London and Moscow.

The Russian Foreign Ministry denied all the allegations and requested the UK Foreign Office to allow a joint investigation into the case.

On March 17 Russia announced retaliatory measures against the United Kingdom, declaring 23 employees of the UK Embassy personae non gratae.

Reports of an upcoming escalation with the US are also circulating on social media.

US-led coalition is planning for an all in attack against the SAA very soon, the attack will be very large and aimed at capturing the border with Iraq and even possible positions near Homs-Damascus highway… almost full invasion like Iraq 2003

In late 2017, troops from the Syrian Army and other allied ground forces liberated parts of the eastern province of Deir ez-Zor, effectively reestablishing a land route stretching from Iran to Syria and Lebanon, where the formidable Hezbollah political party and militia is based.  A Syrian analyst reported that a large-scale US military operation is set to be launched against the Syrian Army near the Syria-Iraq border “very soon.”  “The US is planning a large attack against the Syrian Army very soon to capture Syria’s border with Iraq, especially near al-Tanf and perhaps even parts further inland,” the analyst told Sputnik, citing informed military sources stationed near the al-Tanf US military base.

This military operation would strengthen the US’ position in Syria and, depending on the scale of the attack, could result in US-backed forces seizing more oil fields in eastern and central Syria. US-backed militants already control around 70-80 percent of Syria’s proven oil reserves.

Perhaps more importantly, this escalation could sever the strategic Iran-Iraq-Syria-Lebanon land route, which will not only diminish Iran’s ability to funnel funds and armaments to Hezbollah, but will also adversely affect Syria’s ability to trade with Iraq and Iran, and could complicate Syria’s post-war reconstruction plans.

Backed by the Russian Air Force (RuAF), the Syrian Army has made significant progress against hardline Islamist militants across the country, and is currently in the process of ousting militants from Damascus.

A military escalation by the US would undermine Syria’s sovereignty, and threaten the progress the Syrian Army has made in stabilizing many parts of the country.

The new phase of multilateral terror attacks and destabilization of Iraq marks the 15th anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq. As the country has been plagued by violence and instability for years, it’s not surprising that most Syrians are dreading the prospect of further US military involvement in Syria.

 

Provocations by US-trained militants groups using chemical weapons will serve as a pretext for the United States to attack Syria, and Moscow has seen corresponding preparatory moves, including the formation of naval strike groups, the Russian General Staff has said.  “We note the evidence of preparation for possible attacks. Strike groups of naval carriers with cruise missiles are being formed in the Eastern part of the Mediterranean, in the Persian Gulf and in the Red Sea,” chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff Col. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy said. He stressed that it is unclear, who the US wants to support in this case, Jabhat al-Nusra* terrorists or their allies terrorizing Eastern Ghouta.

According to Rudskoy, militants of the al-Nusra Front from Eastern Ghouta have recently intensified the shelling of Damascus; the army is now conducting operations to eliminate the terrorists. “Jabhat al-Nusra militants along with the White Helmets are preparing a staged chemical attack in the Alghabit and Kalbb Lusa communities situated 25 km (15 miles) to the North-West of Idlib. There are 20 chlorine containers in their possession,” said the Russian General Staff.

The General assured that such an incident would be widely broadcasted in foreign media. “In the area of the city of At-Tanf, American instructors have prepared several groups of militants to carry out provocations in the south of Syria,” said Rudskoy.

According to Rudskoy, the toxic agents have been delivered to southern Syria under the guise of a humanitarian aid convoy.  Rudskoy noted that the provocations were also aimed at creating a pretext for US strikes against Syrian government.

Earlier, US Envoy to UN Nikky Haley threatened with Washington’s strike against Damascus in case the chemical weapons use in Syria.

The situation in Eastern Ghouta has been complicated over the past weeks, as terrorists continue to shell the area. On February 24, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2401 that urged all conflicting sides to immediately stop all hostilities and adhere to a humanitarian pause across Syria in order to ensure the safe delivery of humanitarian aid, as well as medical evacuation of those injured.

Russia also proposed an initiative of organizing a five-hour daily humanitarian pause to ensure humanitarian supplies and evacuations from the area.

Jabhat al-Nusra (also known as al-Nusra Front) is a terrorist group banned in Russia.

Meanwhile, Maria Zakharova, Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, calls the whole shenanigans out of Britain concerning the alleged spy-poisoning affair for what it is – a “grandiose provocation”. On a recent Russian TV debate show, 60 Minutes, the feisty and articulate Zakharova not only summed up the farce of the latest British propaganda stunt. She put it in the context of several other similar provocations, from allegations against Russia over Ukrainian aggression to the Olympics doping scandal. They are indeed all “grandiose provocations” that are hardly worth deliberating on. So baseless and fatuous are these claims leveled by Washington and London in particular. But the disturbing thing is this. These unhinged provocations keep mounting and multiplying to the point where they are becoming dangerous triggers for a war.

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s state of union address on March 1 revealed that, if push comes to shove, the USA and its NATO allies cannot realistically contemplate war. Russia’s new suite of hypersonic weapons disclosed by Putin gives Russia an invulnerable edge over would-be enemies.

Not just Russia, but the rest of the world too, can be relieved that Russian weaponry has reached such a high-level of development to evade American so-called missile defense systems. President Putin was very careful in his speech to emphasize that his country was not seeking to start a war, or threaten anyone. The Russian arsenal is strictly defensive. But, in an extreme situation, the force that Russia can unleash against a would-be enemy will be invulnerable and superior.

It was critically important that Putin unveiled the new Russian weapon systems at this juncture. It was needed in order to dispel any delusion among American leaders and their allies of prosecuting a preemptive war against Russia, which seems to be their reprehensible inclination. It should be clear even to intellectually challenged Western politicians that Russia’s new generation of weapons will inflict devastating consequences. So don’t even think about it.

 

It is clear that Moscow is not trying to intimidate anyone, despite what the Western propagandize about “Russian aggression” and “Soviet revanchism”. Following his landslide election victory at the weekend, Putin reiterated Moscow’s desire to pursue constructive partnerships with other foreign states.

However, what Russia is up against are some deeply delusional powers who are so filled with arrogance and hubris, and an irrational Russophobia, that it is imperative to have the decisive military power in order to keep these powers in check. Washington and its uppity imperialist sidekick in London are particularly dangerously deluded. The provocations emanating from those two seem to have no end.

Without providing any evidence, the British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson is a case study in arrogant ignorance. He accuses Russian leader Vladimir Putin of personally ordering the alleged poison-assassination of a disgraced former Russian spy living in Salisbury. He has the audacity to call Russia’s reasonable demands for demonstration of evidence and due legal process as “absurd” and a “haystack of lies”. Truly, dealing with such numbskulls must be so tiring.

Simultaneously, the Trump regime unveils new sanctions against Russia’s state security services claiming that Russia is carrying out “malicious cyberattacks” on US infrastructure. Again, no evidence is provided. The US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin simply referred to Britain’s outlandish claims of a poison-assassination plot as “evidence”.

In recent days, British and American media have reported their state security services warning of Russian cyberattacks on vital national infrastructure, including electricity grids, nuclear power stations, water delivery systems and aviation networks.

They are so arrogant; they don’t even sense the obligation to provide evidence. Their incorrigibly propagandized brains are programmed to not question, but to follow the script of irrational Russophobia and Islamophobia.  Islamophobia bring all anti-Islamic forces together under the USA-Isreali leadership.

American and British politicians, aided and abetted by shameless media propaganda, have entered into a twilight zone of unreality with regard to Russia. The non-stop provocative slander against Russia is a sign of political psychosis in Washington and London. Unfortunately, other European states have shown susceptibility to the sickness, as can be seen this week with EU foreign ministers supporting Boris Johnson’s accusations against Moscow. It is London that must answer for its absurd, evidence-free allegations. It’s not Moscow that needs to abide by international law and norms. It’s London.

Unwilling to quit Syria and Mideast, the USA is reportedly continuing its military buildup in Syria. Local online news portal the Euphrates Post has published video evidence showing what appear to be two US Coalition Blackhawk helicopters consolidating the US presence in an oil-rich area in Deir ez-Zor province. According to the resource, a new US Coalition base is being built in the area east of the city of Mejadin, near al-Omar, Syria’s largest oil field. There has been an obvious trend for the Pentagon to create new facilities in and around Syria’s largest oil and gas fields. the US has no plans to leave Syria any time soon, and that their intervention has nothing to do with establishing order or fighting against terrorism.

Over the space of several years, the USA has deployed 25 military facilities in Syria, and are continuing to build new ones. In general, they try to act in such a way as to establish control of oil-rich areas and energy resources. At the same time, they don’t believe they should be accountable to anyone.  According to Zhilin, the US’s role in Syria today is to subvert and destabilize the situation, via, for example, the creation of a new terrorist army to fight the Syrian military, or to stage a provocation in Eastern Ghouta using chlorine to allow US air power to strike against the Syrian army directly.

 

The USA and its coalition allies began a campaign of airstrikes against Daesh* in 2014, following it up by the deployment of US forces into Syrian-Kurdish areas as the terrorists’ so-called caliphate began to shrink. Damascus has criticized the US intervention, repeatedly pointing out that it was never invited into the country by the internationally recognized government of President Bashar Assad.

The reality being that should the deluded ones in Washington and London push their arrogance too far, they are no match for Russia’s ability to defend itself with superior military force. Russia has no need for bluff or bluster, unlike the Americans and British who are compensating for their own inadequacy and incompetence.

USA cannot win a war on its own it wins wars with NATO empowerment. . The Americans and Israelis rarely won a war in their history. They are only good for attacking weaker, defenseless countries.

Russia, on the other hand, is a bear that only a fool would push. And it was good the Russian bear bared its claws recently. Just to remind the arrogant deluded fools.

US led NATO fascist war with backing from every anti-Islamic nation on earth Israel, a few Arab nations, others, committed genocides of Muslims in millions. Recently, more than 44,000 people left Damascus’ suburbs of Eastern Ghouta through the humanitarian corridors. Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi said: “Today one can say that the situation in Eastern Ghouta has radically changed. Right now you are witnessing a humanitarian operation of a unique scale. Now 26,610 civilians left Eastern Ghouta through the humanitarian corridor, while the entire number of people, who’ve left Eastern Ghouta, has reached 44,639,” Rudskoi said. Rudskoy said that three UN humanitarian convoys had made it to Eastern Ghouta over the past week. The people in need have received 445 tons of food, essentials and medicines.

According to the latest reports, the Syrian troops have already liberated more than half of the area, which jihadists have controlled control since 2012. It is known that 10,000 to 12,000 militants are to be somewhere in the area.

Many countries kill Syrians as more and more anti-Islamic nations also join the party, drinking the blood of Syrians as they relish Islamic blood of Muslims starting form Afghanistan where the USA launched fascist-imperialist war under the pretext of Sept-11 hoax, engineered in USA by anti-Islamic forces with backing from Israel and Saudi Arabia- now the strategic partners against Islam and Palestine.

Worse, the USA is a country that has violated countless international laws to destroy the lives of millions of people by waging illegal wars around the planet.

Russia warns USA against Syria strikes!

Russia warns USA against Syria strikes!

Russia has called on the United States to unconditionally abandon its plans for a strike against Syrian government forces and Damascus, Sergei Ryabkov stated, answering the journalist’s question. “We’ve warned and warned the US that these plans must be unconditionally refused. Any such unlawful use of force, similar to what happened almost a year ago at the Shairat air base, would be an act of aggression against a sovereign state, as defined by the relevant article of the UN Charter,” he said.

Sergei Ryabkov believes that if the situation in Syria and, in particular, Eastern Ghouta changes for the better, opponents to a peaceful resolution to the conflict could incite the international community by sabotaging this process, possibly by using chemical weapons. “The situation in Eastern Ghouta has changed radically for the better,” Sergei Ryabkov told reporters on Tuesday. He drew attention to the fact that tens of thousands of people had already left the danger zone. “All this, of course, infuriates, in the truest sense of the word, the opponents of the government in Damascus; they are looking for new pretexts for attacks on us and on Syria,” Ryabkov said. “In this situation, of course, any provocations are possible, and we need to be prepared. Provocations could include staging the use of chemical weapons by government troops,” Ryabkov said. The staged ‘chemical attacks’ will continue in Syria as Syrian troops advance, he added.

Earlier, US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley said that the US was prepared to act on the use of chemical weapons in Syria. According to him, the United States struck at the Shairat airbase, after a chemical attack in Syria’s Khan Sheikhoun on April 4, 2017, as the UN Security Council “was unable to take action.”

London still refuses to cooperate with Moscow in the investigation of the poisoning of the former Russian double-agent Sergei Skripal, which Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov has described as a massive provocation. “The British, acting with explicit malicious intent, have delivered some accusations. Once again, without backing them in any way with material evidence, with any kind of basis, rejecting cooperation, and, most outrageously, successively depriving us of consular access to Russian citizen Julia Skripal, who, as we understand, is in a critical state,” Ryabkov told reporters. “All this is nothing more than a large-scale, multi-layer provocation, which is being conducted via a whole series of unlawful methods,” the deputy head of the Russian Foreign Ministry added.

Moscow once again declares that neither Russia nor the USSR had a program for the development and production of chemical weapons under the conventional name “Novichok,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov stressed.

Moscow has called on the OPCW to provide Russia with all information regarding its reasoning for responding positively to London’s request for the Skripal’s case, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters.

The OPCW experts arrived in the UK, where they would meet with the leadership of the military, scientific and technical laboratory in Porton Down and with the representatives of Scotland Yard to discuss the transfer process for testing the samples of the substance with which Skripal and his daughter were poisoned.

Earlier, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said that it was “highly likely” that Russia was responsible for the Salisbury incident and later announced a package of anti-Russia measures, including the expulsion of Russian diplomats from the country, and the suspension of bilateral contacts between London and Moscow.

The Russian Foreign Ministry denied all the allegations and requested the UK Foreign Office to allow a joint investigation into the case.

On March 17 Russia announced retaliatory measures against the United Kingdom, declaring 23 employees of the UK Embassy personae non gratae.

Reports of an upcoming escalation with the US are also circulating on social media.

US-led coalition is planning for an all in attack against the SAA very soon, the attack will be very large and aimed at capturing the border with Iraq and even possible positions near Homs-Damascus highway… almost full invasion like Iraq 2003

In late 2017, troops from the Syrian Army and other allied ground forces liberated parts of the eastern province of Deir ez-Zor, effectively reestablishing a land route stretching from Iran to Syria and Lebanon, where the formidable Hezbollah political party and militia is based.  A Syrian analyst reported that a large-scale US military operation is set to be launched against the Syrian Army near the Syria-Iraq border “very soon.”  “The US is planning a large attack against the Syrian Army very soon to capture Syria’s border with Iraq, especially near al-Tanf and perhaps even parts further inland,” the analyst told Sputnik, citing informed military sources stationed near the al-Tanf US military base.

This military operation would strengthen the US’ position in Syria and, depending on the scale of the attack, could result in US-backed forces seizing more oil fields in eastern and central Syria. US-backed militants already control around 70-80 percent of Syria’s proven oil reserves.

Perhaps more importantly, this escalation could sever the strategic Iran-Iraq-Syria-Lebanon land route, which will not only diminish Iran’s ability to funnel funds and armaments to Hezbollah, but will also adversely affect Syria’s ability to trade with Iraq and Iran, and could complicate Syria’s post-war reconstruction plans.

Backed by the Russian Air Force (RuAF), the Syrian Army has made significant progress against hardline Islamist militants across the country, and is currently in the process of ousting militants from Damascus.

A military escalation by the US would undermine Syria’s sovereignty, and threaten the progress the Syrian Army has made in stabilizing many parts of the country.

The new phase of multilateral terror attacks and destabilization of Iraq marks the 15th anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq. As the country has been plagued by violence and instability for years, it’s not surprising that most Syrians are dreading the prospect of further US military involvement in Syria.

India: RSS-BJP fascist duo challenges judiciary over Babri Mosque judgment!

India:  RSS-BJP fascist duo challenges judiciary over Babri Mosque judgment!

India RSS-BJP fascist duo challenges judiciary over Babri Mosque judgment!

The poisonous RSS-BJP fascist forces continue to dictate terms to India, its media lords and voters. They say everything in India must be done according their fanatic tastes. They have already begun attacking and killing Muslims over issues that are merely fictitious. The attacks and lynching are being committed against Muslims in order to terrorize both Muslims and Hindu voters.  That makes the Hindu voters vulnerable to choose only the BJP type arrogant parties as Hindus, interestingly, become scared of powerless Muslims.

That is the victory of the RSS-BJP fanatics.  For their existence, blooming and controlling the nation the Hindutva guys should be grateful to the Congress party and Indian state. Even many Congress and communist people sport the “Sanyasi kaavi “ dress to let the Hindu voters identify them also as  Hindutva supporters. Muslims have no maturity to decode the  symbolic Hindu actions of the politics .

Thanks to the continuous support from Congress and other fanatic parties pretending to be secular, the BJP and RSS have become very strong in India.

The poisonous and racist RSS and BJP contuse to destroy the benefits of freedom India got from Britishers.

These fascist forces think that India belongs exclusively to them only and Muslims and others including the real and normal positively thinking Hindus have no right n the country and these fanatic Zionist Hindutva nuts are eager to push India into darkness once again.

The  Hindu communal duo RSS-BJP has mobilized the extremist Hindus- that were used by them to dismantle the historic Babri Mosque in 1992,  to object to the judiciary to ant genuine judgment on the ghastly destruction of national historic monument called Babri Mosque in favor of truth by being on the side of Babri Mosque and against Hindutva which considers returning the historic Babri mosque back to its owners the Muslims, would amount to insulting the Hindutva fascist forces led by RSS-BJP duo.

BJP-RSS calculates that if they could mobilize Hindu mobs against Babri mosque belonging to the minority Muslims, the Apex Court which has reserved its judgment, would change the verdict to promote Hindutva as Indian judicial ideology. The Modi regime must be busy in   arm-twisting the judges to write a pro-Hindutva judgment because, they argue, as once Hindu criminals are punished that would be extremely bad for RSS-BJP Hindutva political trade in the country.

The ultra fanatic RSS-BJP-VHP trio has been provoking the nation and judiciary with all Indian Hindutva agitations called ”Rath yatra” central to anti-Islam politics for Hindu votes.

The Modi government is exploiting the weak AIADMK government in  Tamil Nadu to push through its BJP agenda which, after flourishing  on  profitable alliance with both DMK and AIADMK in poll politics, got back to zero  sum as both the  Dravidian parties have decided not to promote Hindutva forces in the state to  poison the Tamil minds. However,  the ruling AIADMK government granted permission to the RSS-BJP “Rath yatra” to pass through gaining support for Hindutva ideology as the extra “patriotic” terror.

Tamil nadu government should have denied permission to RSS-BJP for the “Rath yatra” which is essentially anti-national, anti-constitutional and anti-secular nation. Promotion of Hindutva moorings in the state would make the ruling AIADMK stable or strong, but rather it would be weakened sooner or later.

Senior actors like Kamal Hasan and Rajinikanth who claims to be politicians in Tamil Nadu have not made any remarks about Hindutva criminalization of Indian politics and its efforts to stage a comeback in Tamil Nadu.

Obviously, these actors have no interest in the future of the state and people but only want to make political wealth out of pathetic existence of Tamils. Rajnikanth is eager to be accepted by Tamils as their god at par with fake fixer in sports, cricketer Sachin tendulkar.

The BJP is interested in Hindu vote banks in Karnataka where the next general poll is due and BJP is eager to take back the government from the Congress party. That is reason why the Modi government continues to ignore the orders of Supreme Court to institute Kaveri board to regulate Cauvery water flow from Karnataka to Tamil Nadu.

The national outfits BJP and Congress continue to maintaining their secret links and make many thinkers and critics of RSS disappear.

However r, people see through the Hindutva game plans and put the Congress on life saving medication for its arrogance and harms done to the nation and BJP is being already rejected by the people of India.

Certainly, the BJP without any genuine concern for the people would fall into the dust bin in due course.  The way the Congress party has been shifted to waste bin clearly shows the ultra fanatic BJP would also be in a worse position in due course.

Indians would reject all brands of fanaticism in due course

Very recently  the ruling BJP has shockingly lost  the bypolls in a few states where  the third front parties have won the seats, making it clear that BJP would be out for its pure gimmicks, while Congress party lost deposit amounts. India hates Congress as well as BJP. That is the Indian verdict.

The Congress and its so-called secular allies with tacit RSS links have made the RSS-BJP powerful. While RSS used to support the Congress party, giving an edge in the polls, now they directly promote the Hindutva parties like the lynching BJP.

Both Congress party and BJP advanced India’s sovereign interest that includes containing Indian Muslims, harming the genuine interest of Muslim  in jobs where they face maximum troubles from Hindu bosses  and eventually quit jobs and seek voluntary retirement but Indian regime pursue the policy further to deny even pensions to Muslims.

Leaders of Congress and other parties are annoyed now with the Modi government not for misgovernance or not fulfilling the premises offered to the people but for not allowing them also to take away parts of profits as their own due share. The Congress regime let other parties also to loot and share the profits of the Indian government but the BJP government is choosy about whom to allow taking away resources.

The Congress is being attacked by BJP government for being dependent on one dynasty. This assault has to be parried and that is why it is being showcased that Congress had a range of leaders and it is not run by only one dynasty.

The BJP exploited ht split in the erstwhile Janata Party experiment and formed the BJP by taking away big chuck of Janata party workers and leaders, offering them posts. Now the BJP offers huge money and posts to anyone seeking to enter the BJP outfit. But the Congress party did not have to do even that it  took advantage of  the then Congress freedom struggle launched by Mahatma Gondi who had rightly advised Nehru to disband the freedom moment known as Congress and launch a new party for  the independent India but Nehru and friends wanitng to rule andejnoy life  rejected the Gandhian advice and wanted to use the popularity of Gandhi and the freedom movement for the elections.

But people have turned the Congress party that has grown the worst corrupt outfit and national shame. .

The poisonously dangerous agenda of RSS-BJP that destabilizes secular democracy as the base principle of India should be dealt with as a priority issue. Of course people would deal with it but only in due course and meanwhile the judiciary should put an end to poisonous fanaticism and hate politics of Hindutva forces and save India from the anti-National forces pretending to be “patriotic”.

Today the pseudo patriotic and criminal elements of RSS-BJP targets Indians in India in the name of patriotism.

Indian judiciary needs to take note of this trend and end the national criminal fanaticism.
