Description

by grtv

The United States and Russia have achieved many milestones when it comes to relieving tensions between the two superpowers after the Cold War, but it seems that lately those strains have been on the rise.

Russia has been more than vocal over its opposition of the US missile defense shield in Eastern Europe, and now Russia plans on implementing a visa ban on American officials to counter the US banning Russian officials for alleged human rights violations.

David Swanson, campaigner for Roots Action, joins us with more on the matter.

پروندهٔ دو امام تازی

پروندهٔ دو امام تازی. حسن و حسین

براینکه درک و داوری درستی از دژُنام گویان و دژُآگاهان، دغلکاران و دلقکان، دعانویسان و دروغ پردازان دین، یعنی پیروان پژوین و پشماگند تاریک بین و تازیک اندیش داشته باشیم. باید با سویج یا سُنبه و سُوندی سُنباننده به سودن و سُفتن در ترازوی تاریخ، بمثابهٔ ساینتیفیک هیستوری البته با مدد و متد سافیس تیکیت و فیلوسوفیک آنرا مورد کنُش و کنکاش قرار دهیم تا در غرقاب غبار غسل و غساله های غداره بند توضیح المسائل نویس ها و دعانویس های دیوان تفتیش عقاید شرطه های شرعی ـ عربی، غرق نشویم.

وقتی که ترکان قشری قزلباش به سرکردکی شاه اسماعیل صفوی یک شبه با دروغ و دغلکاری و با داخل کردن یا وارد کردن کاروانی از آخوند و انگل، اهریمن و اجنه، رجاله و روضه خوان، راهزن و رمه بان، رند و رمال، جاهل و جمل سوار، جادوگر و جنبل باف از جبل عامل لبنان تا عراق از شام تا یمن و بحرین، توانست یکبار دیگر همچون سلف خود سعدوقاص، مردم ایران را با زور و ذوالفقار قاریان قبح و قمه کشان قزلباس، مجبور و محکوم به پذیرش و گردن نهادن قلادهٔ غلامی قصابان جدیدی از تبار وحشیان تبهکار تازی، بنام شیعه اثناعشری ـ عربی را بجای تسنن ترکی ـ تازی وادار سازد. تا بدین وسیله شبهٔ شوم بساط سیطره تحجر و تعزیه گری، زنجیر زنی و قمه زنی، سینه زنی و سیه روزی،آشوبگری و آشوراسالاری،شیخ شنیع و شام غریبانی را به همراه کارخانهٔ مسخ و مهدیه گری را با جهولت و جلادی، تمام وکمال در سراسر آسمان ایران زمین بگستراند 

ـ برعکس ادعای آستان بوس ها و اختابوس های رجزخوان و رجاله های رذالت پیشهٔ روضه خوان و رجم گر آثناعشری ـ عربی حاکم بر ایران، بیائید دمی ، کمی هم به افادهٔ افاضات یا آراجیف ابتذال گونه، پژوین و پلشت ابا عبدالله یعنی امام الحسین علیه العرب تازی را از زبان ضریس بن عبدالملک بشنوید که می گوید: از ابا عبدالله امام الحسین علیه السلام بشنیدم که فریش و فرمایش می کرد که " ما همه از تبار قمه کشان قریشیم و پیروان عرب تازی و دُشمنان قسم خورده عجم هستیم، واضع و واعظ است که هر عرب تازی بهتر و بهین تر و بالاتر و برتر از هر عجم می باشد و هر عجم فرومایه تر و فرودست تر از هر عرب تازی می باشد. باز همو مرتکب فضیلت فخارانه می شود و در ادامه می فرماید که باید ایرانیان را به مدینه آورد و زنانشان را برای زفاف و ذکاة فروخت و مردانشان را به بردگی و بندگی عرب ها مجبور کرد" (1 ) نقل و قول این مطالب: سقیته البحار و مدینه الاحکام و آثار. تالیف حاج شیخ عباس قمی در کتاب شیعه گری نوشته مسعود انصاری صفحه 54

"حتی اسناد تاریخی تصدیق شده و تائید شده بسیاری گواه بر این مدعای مستند و موثق می باشد که برای ترور و تصرف طبرستان در زمان خلافت خاسر و خبیث، خناس و خدعه عثمان عرب، جنگ سختی به سرداری و سر جلادی سعیدبن عاص در آن منطقه درگرفت که در نتیجهٔ شهامت و رشادت مردم ناکام ماند، از جمله سرکردگان و سرگردن زنان این ساطور بدست عرب، حسن و حسین، فرزندان علی ابی طالب، قمه کش و قاتل قوم و قبیله بنی قریظه بودند "

(2) برای صحت و صحیح بودن صرافانه این ادعای گوینده مراجعه شود به تاریخ طبری جلد پنجم، صفحه 2116 ، فتوح البلدان صفحه 183 ، مختصرالبلدان صفحه 152

البته در بسیاری از کتب تاریخی عرب و اروپائی به وفور و  وثوق آمده است که از بدو تجاوز و تصرف ایران توسط تازیان تبهکار، همیشه تبعیض نژادی به همراه تعرض و  تعقیب، تهدید و تعزیر، یکی از شگردهای شقی و شیادانه، شیطان صفتانه و شعبده بازانهٔ شمشیرکشان شرعی بوده است که چه بطور مستقیم و چه غیر مستقیم توسط ستون پنجمی بنام شیاطین الفقها یا فقیه الشیاطین تازی تبار علیه ایرانیان اعمال می شد.

تا جائیکه تازیان مسلمان بری تحقیر و تمسخر، توهین و تکفیر ایرانیان، می گفتند که سه چیز در اسلام تازیان وجود دارد که نماز یعنی این نماد نوکری و نوچه گری به دُژگاه یا درگاه سوسمارزادگان سمی - صحرائی  قمه کشان قریشی را باطل می کند: یکی سگ و دومی اُلاغ و سومی ایرانی میباشد.

تازیان مسلمان و فرهنگ کتاب سوزانی

تازیان مسلمان و فرهنگ کتاب سوزانی
سخنی سگالنده و سُنبانده در حاشیهٔ سوزاندن اسناد تاریخی دوران پهلوی.
در واقع آنچه را که امروز ولایت واپسگرا و ویرانگر فقیه بطور وُستاخانه و وحشیانه در سرزمین آریائیان، تحت عنوان تاریخ سوزانی یا کتاب سوزانی مرتکب می شود، در اصل و اساس خویش، چیزی بجز تکرار همان تازش و ترور یا توهین و تخریب تازیان صدر اسلامی در راستای فروپاشی و فراموش سازی فرهنگ فروزنندهٔ پارسیان نمی باشد.
اهداف شرارت گونه و شقاوت گونهٔ این شیاطین و شرطه های شرعی اسلامی این است که با تقلب و تخلف تاریخی به همراه تکنیک و تکنولوژی تنفر و آتش تنور علیه تجدد ایرانی، تتمه یا، ته مانده، و تفالهٔ تعفن بار در حال تباهی و تلاشی تمدن یا تحجر تهبکارانهٔ تازیان را تبرئه و تبرک نمایند چراکه یکی از صفات ددمنشان و دیوسارانهٔ تازیان دخمه و دالان یا دهلیز غار حرائی بجز غارتگری و غنیمت گیری، ویرانگری و وحشی گری به همراه تحقیر و تعقیب ایرانیان، کتاب سوزانی بوده است تا سطح فرازمندانهٔ فرهنگ پارسیان را به سطح نازل و نحس و نعش نجس رطیل زادگان، راهزنان، رمامالان، رجم گران رذل، کاهش دهند. تا جائیکه ابوریحان بیرونی در " آثارالباقیه " نوشته است: وقتی که قتیبهَ بن مسلم به خوارزم مشرف شد و در دروازه آن شهر با شمشیر بگشود، هرکس که توانایی خواندن و خط نوشتن داشت یا می توانست از تاریخ و تمدن و تجدد نیاکان خود اطلاع و آگاهی داشته باشد، آن مردم را به همراه کتاب هایشان یا از دم تیغ گذرانید یا در آتش تنور بسوزانید تا مردم باقی مانده، مردمی باشند بی سواد تا آنها بتوانند به آسانی یا با زور و ذوالفقار یا قهر و قمهٔ قریشی آنها را به پذیرش عبودیت و بندگی برای اعراب اُم القرائی ـ قرآنی، وادار سازند

بحثی بصیرنده و بسیجنده ، پژوهنده و پیام رساننده پیرامون تقارُب و تجاوز جنسی یا بر حسب حکمت وقیح وُستاخانهٔ عمله های عُمال و حمال ابلیسان ائمه اطهار و ائمه انصار فرقه والایت وادی الاجنهٔ حاکم بر سرزمین کهن مزده یسنیٰ، زروانی ـ زرتشتی آریائیان، جزیه و جریمه یا جماع جائرانه و جبارانه، جانورانه و جنایتکارانهٔ جنت جُهول و جنون شرطه های شریر و شرعی اسلام تازی ـ تعزیری عرب عربستانی به دو نوجوان به اصطلاع ایرانی، که گویا عمیقاَ یا علیلاً تحت تأثیر تأدیب و تربیت تبلیغاتی تازی الاتباران، در مغزشوئی خانه های مشتی ملا و مفتی مفتخور و مزدور ، مکار و موعظه گر، مفلوک و مُخلا، مستهجن و متعفن مساجد و مسخ خانه ها، قرار گرفته بودند و مشتاقانه یا متملقانه برای تقرُب و تقدیس، تمکین و تعظیم، طواف و تطهیر یعنی برای اثبات حقارت و عبودیت عفریت گونه و ادای نوکری و نوچه گری در مقابل منارهٔ نعش و مکعب نحس تاریک و تازیک بطور خمیده و خماننده، به نماز و نیاز در جهت رسیدن به قضای حاجت حج عمره به محضر محترم تربت آن حضرت تازی التعالیٰ، شرف یاب شده بودند، شرمگینانه و شرم سارانه در معرض تعرض یا تجاوز شق الشهوت تازیان مسلمان قرار می گیرند که مایهٔ بسی آفرین و فریش گفتن است برای ایرانی نمایان تازی التباری که بدون هیچ گونه شرافت و شرم ملی، با بلاغت و بلاهت بلند پروازانه از ین همه بزل و بخشش جنسی عرب های تازی به خود می بالند یا می مالند. زیرا در مکتب مطیع و میمون وار مذلت شده و ملوث شدهٔ مدیحه گویان مدینهٔ ملایان ولایت فقیه، دخالت و دخول، تزریق و تزکیه جنسی بادیه نشینان تازی ، بار مدنی ـ مسلمانی یا ذخیره ذکاوت و توشه ذکات اُم القرائی ـ قریشی آنان را در امور دنیوی و اُخروی فروزش و فزونی می بخشد.
باتوجه به تأسف و تعفن بار بودن این تراژدی و توحش تحقیر گونه تعزیر جنسی یا تأدیب و تربیت اسلامی، گوینده کوشش می کند با بهره مندی بهین گونه از براهین و برآوردهای براق و برُنده تاریخی مورخان و محققان، معدثان و مفسران بومی و غیر بومی، ترازبندی هرچند مختصر و مرخمی را از تازش و تجاوز مُستجاب و مُستدام یا مداوم تازیان در طی این هزارو چهارصد ساله چیره و چپاول ننگین و چرکین این چماقداران و چوپانان چابنده و چاچُول بازانه را چه به صورت تسنن تازی ـ ترکی و چه به صورت تشیع علوی ـ عربی را به عرض شنوندگان،و خوانندگان یا بیندگان برسانم. امید است که ایفاء گر نقشی آگاه کننده و آشورنده، آژیرنده و آتش آفروزنده را در جهت رنسانس و رستاخیز یا فراشکرد فرازستان فرهنگ دوباره آریائی ـ ایرانی داشته باشد.
1 ـ رسول زادگان یا بهتر گفته باشم رطیل زادگان تازی از بدو سیطره سبُعانه و سفاکانه خود بر ایران، کسانی را که دین این ددمنشان و دغلکاران یا دُزدان دوزخی را نمی پذیرفتند یا از پرداخت و پردازش جزیه و جریمه به این قمه کشان و قصاص گران قریشی ـ قشری، سرباز می زنند بدون قلمداد کردن ذّمه یا امان دادن بی رحمانه و با بربریت تمام بخاطر دست یازیدن به زر و زن شان با اهرم زور و ذوالفقار قتل عام می کردند.
2 ـ از همان ابتدای تسلط تهبکارانه تازیان، زبان و خط پهلوی را متروک و ممنوع شمردند تا جائی که به سبیل و سمومی سوسمارانه و سفاکانه با نیش و نیشتر عقرب گونه به نکوهس کردن آداب و عادات و سنن کهن ایرانی ـ آریائی، می پرداختند.
3 ـ یکی از صفات ددمنشان و دیوسارانهٔ تازیان دخمه و دالان یا دهلیز غار حرائی بجز غارتگری و غنیمت گیری، ویرانگری و وحشی گری به همراه تحقیر و تعقیب ایرانیان، کتاب سوزانی بوده است تا سطح فرازمندانهٔ فرهنگ پارسیان را به سطح نازل و نحس و نعش نجس رطیل زادگان، راهزنان، رمملان، رجم گران رذل، کاهش دهند. تا جائیکه ابوریحان بیرونی در " آثارالباقیه " نوشته است: وقتی که قتیبهَ بن مسلم به خوارزم مشرف شد و در دروازه آن شهر با شمشیر بگشود، هرکس که توانایی خواندن و خط نوشتن داشت یا می توانست از تاریخ و تمدن و تجدد نیاکان خود اطلاع و آگاهی داشته باشد، آن مردم را به همراه کتاب هایشان یا از دم تیغ گذرانید یا در آتش تنور بسوزانید تا مردم باقی مانده، مردمی باشند بی سواد تا آنها بتوانند به آسانی یا با زور و ذوالفقار یا قهر و قمهٔ قریشی آنها را به پذیرش عبودیت و بندگی برای اعراب اُم القرائی ـ قرآنی، وادار سازند.
4 ـ برعکس ادعای آستان بوس ها و اختابوس های رجزخوان و رجاله های رذالت پیشهٔ روضه خوان و رجم گر آثناعشری ـ عربی حاکم بر ایران، بیائید دمی ، کمی هم به افادهٔ افاضات یا آراجیف ابتذال گونه، پژوین و پلشت ابا عبدالله یعنی امام الحسین علیه العرب تازی را از زبان ضریس بن عبدالملک بشنوید که می گوید: از ابا عبدالله امام احسین علیه السلام بشنیدم که فریش و فرمایش می کرد که " ما همه از تبار قمه کشان قریشیم و پیروان عرب تازی و دُشمنان قسم خورده عجم هستیم، واضع و واعظ است که هر عرب تازی بهتر و بهین تر و بالاتر و برتر از هر عجم می باشد و هر عجم فرومایه تر و فرودست تر از هر عرب تازی می باشد. باز همو مرتکب فضیلت فخارانه می شود و در ادامه می فرماید که باید ایرانیان را به مدینه آورد و زنانشان را برای زفاف و ذکاة فروخت و مردانشان را به بردگی و بندگی عرب ها مجبور کرد" (1 ) نقل و قول این مطالب: سقیته البحار و مدینه الاحکام و آثار. تالیف حاج شیخ عباس قمی در کتاب شیعه گری نوشته مسعود انصاری صفحه 54 .

5 ـ" قتل عام بربرگونهٔ برمکیان ایرانی بدست هارون خلیفه تازیان مسلمان، نمونه دیگری است از توحش تهبکارانهٔ تاریخی تسلط این دیو صفتان و تیغ بدستان، یعنی این ختنه شدگان تناسلی ـ تفکری تازیان مسلمان علیه آریائیان که می تواند برای آن دسته از ایرانیانی که دارای مغز و معرفت مختار و مساعد ملی ـ میهنی هستند، نقش براز و برانگیزنده ای را علیه این عبودیت کنونی برای عربیت حاکم بر ایران را ایفاء کند. زیرا بنا به تائید و تصدیق یا تطبیق تعقل تاریخی " در زمانی به مدت هفتاد و دو ساعت بدستور هارون خلیفه خناس و خبیث مسلمانان تازی هزارو دویست نفر مرد و زن، کودک و کهن سال از جمله کلیه افراد خاندان وحتی خویشاوندان دور و نزدیک برمکی با وضع فجیع و فژاگنی کشته شدند و بدنبال آن بر حسب رسم رطیل خواران و قمه کشان قریشی، تمام کسانی را که نیز مامور این قتل عام عرب گونه شده بودند پس از انجام ماموریت خلیفه وقت اسلام، به قتل می رسند. و فردای آن شبی که جعفر برمکی کشته شد، هارون عباسه خواهر خویش یعنی همسر جعفر را زنده، زنده در تابوت گذاشت و دستور دفن او را داد تا گویا دستش طبق آئین ابلیسانه و آدمکشانهٔ قرآن اُم القرائی به خون خواهر خلیفه مسلمین آلوده و آغشته نشده باشد.
ولی دو فرزند خردسال عباسه و جعفر را در تنور آتش انداخت، همچنان سر بریدهٔ جعفر را به امر هارون بر بالای پُل وسطای دجله آویختند و بدنش را به سبک قمه کشان قریشی از بالا به پایین دو پاره کردند و هر پاره از آن را به یکی از از دو پُل علیاء و سفلای دجله به دار آویختند. قطعات قطاع شدهٔ جعفر به مدت دو سال برای عبرت عجم در آنجا به حالت آویزان باقی ماند" (3)
نقل و قول: زمخشری در ربیع الابرار، صفحه 147
6 ـ مورخ و محقق معروف و مشهور ایران ابن اسفندیار در کتاب "تاریخ طبری" در بارهٔ شُهره شرارت و شقاوت شمشیر زن اسلام، یزیدبن مهلب نوشته است: وقتی که یزیدبن مهلب از پایداری و پایمردی مردم گرگان به خدشه و خشم آمد، سوگند به آلله تازیان یاد کرد که چون در آن شهر بگشاید، آسیاب بخون مردم گرگان بگرداند و از آن آسیاب مقداری گندم که کفاف یک وعده تناول در حد تحجر و تنفر او باشد. لذا چون گرگان را به اسارت بگرفت، فرمان داد تا آنقدر از مردم آنجا بکشند تا خون در جویی جاری شود. امّا هرچه از خون گشته شدگان در جویی می ریختند، بخاطر خاصیت لخته و دلمه شدن خون، آسیاب به حرکت در نمی آمد. در نهایت با مشورت اصحاب و انصار این جلاد تازی، اندکی آب در جویی ریختند تا خون لخته نشود و بتواند با جریانش آسیاب را به حرکت در آورد تا گندم آرد شود و نان پخته گردد.
وقتی که نان پخته از خون مردم را ارتزاق و ارتشاف می کرد دستور داد تا زنان و دختران مردم را نیز در حضور مبارک مسلمانی اش بین قمه کشان و قصاص گران عسگری ـ عربی برای تجاوز و تداخل جنسی تقسیم کنند. عمق فاجعهٔ و فژاگن فرهنگی اینجاست که بعدها قبر همین قمه کش قریشی پس از گشته شدنش بسان امام زادگان سبزه کفن یا سبر قبا ها ی قسی ـ قریشی، برای تقرُب و تقدیس یا رسیدن به قضای حاجات به زیارتگاه ایرانیان بدل می شود.
7 ـ در واپسین واگویه فرجام شناسانه، البته با مدد و متد اسکاتا لوجیک منطقی یعنی به پشتوانهٔ پیشنه تاریخی و به پرتو پیمایش در پراتیک و تجربه، می توان اینچینین ادعا و استدلال کرد، تازمانیکه پوران و پورمندان،پهلوانان و پارتیزانان، فرهیختگان و فرزانگان ایرانی ـ آریائی، پارسایانه پوشنه و پوشش این پاشیدگی و پوسیدگی، پراگندگی و پریشان حالی فرهنگ تخدیر و تحقیر، گدائی و گمراهی، کرخت و گژهی، کلب و گور پرستی، گوسفندی و گردن خم کنی،نزر و نیاز، نماز و نوکری به دُژگاه یا دفن گاه های کعبه و کربلا، نهاوند و نجف را به همراه طواف طوطی وار طوایف طُلاب، عمامه و عراب را با رجعت به رنسانس و رستاخیزی رهاننده یعنی با بازگشت یا فراشکردی فرازمندانه به فرهنگ دیرینهٔ آریائی ـ آهورائی، این عاملان اصلی رذالت و رخوت ملی ـ میهنی را به کرانه و کناره زباله زمان، پرتاب نکنند یا بقول ولتر: مذهب خود را به بسان پول رایج کشورشان تحویل نگیرند تا ابدالدهر در چنبره وابستگی و واماندگی، اسارت و ایستائی با اتیکت عفریت عبودیت در زیر سلطهٔ سفاکانه و تسلط تهبکارنهٔ این ختنه شدگان خبیث تناسل و تفکر، تازی الاتبار باقی خواهند ماند.

  • Saudi Arabia Wants to Convert Sweden to Islam
    Aje Carlbom is an Associate Professor of Social Anthropology, University of Malmö By Aje Carlbom | dagenssamhalle.se Since the 1970s, Saudi Arabia has actively spread its interpretation of Islam, Wahhabism or Salafism, worldwide. It is the most literal version of Islam and affects many young Muslims, who regard society as a place to Islamize, writes social anthropologist Aje Carlbom.Sweden's Foreign Minister Margot Wallström was criticized by Saudi Arabia for their involvement in its internal affairs. For the Saudis themselves however, there is no problem to interfere in other countries' political and social affairs.Since the 1970s, Saudi Arabia has been actively proselytizing, on a global level, for their particular interpretation of Islam: Wahhabism or Salafism, as its become known as in later years. It is the most literalist version of Islamic interpretations (Sunni) and has influenced the thinking of many young Muslims in recent years.The Saudi mission is organized by the Muslim World League (MWL), one of the largest NGOs with 30 offices on five continents. The main task of the MWL is to sponsor the spread of Islam in the world. The latest Swedish Quran translation, "Koranens budskap" (the message of the Quran), was partly financed with the help of Saudi capital.An important part of the mission has been to finance the construction of mosques. The great mosque in Malmö, Islamic Center, was funded by Saudi Arabia and Libya when it was built in the early 1980s. A relationship that changed a few years before the "Arab Spring" when the World Islamic Call Society bought the mosque. It is a Libyan, competing organization, which was established by the country's then dictator Muammar al Gaddafi.The organization World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) is included in the MWL, who has spread its Islamic propaganda in different languages ??long before the Internet became a platform for it. Well known among those who study the spread of Islam, is the series of brochures that has been published by WAMY in recent decades.The series tackles different subject areas in which the reader is persuaded to turn to Islam to find the meaning of life. MWL / WAMY has offices in London, whose aim is to "introduce Islam" in the UK and contribute to, as they say today, "dialogue" with the surrounding society. Another objective is to "correct the false image" of Islam, that is perceive to dominate how Westerners view Islam.The Saudi mission has been very successful among many young Muslims in Sweden and other European countries. A common hypothesis is that young people are suffering from an identity crisis that makes them uncertain about who they really are. They find it hard to identify with the family's cultural and religious values ??and do not feel really at home in the Swedish liberal way of life.For an increasing number of young people, the solution to the difficulties is to search for Islamist groups and networks where they find religious and social community. In recent years, many young people has perceived Salafism more attractive than the Muslim Brotherhood and Hizb out-Tahrir extreme teachings.In Sweden, the term "violent radicalization" has had a major impact. The Islamist part of the term refers to the Salafists who develop in a militant direction and turn into jihadists. As a political movement Salafism is divided into groups that advocate violence and those who are opposed to it.Violent young people is of course an integration problem for the democratic society. But even non-militant Salafism is a problem for young Muslims prospects to participate in society. These live in a "mental ghetto," which avoids contact with people who do not share their group's outlook. Separation from the majority society is a positive value for young people in the movement.The young people who are drawn into the ideological world of salafism is on the search for "true" Islam. Young people feel that the Saudi interpretation provides an unambiguous teaching with clear instructions from god on how one should behave as a Muslim.Salafists are developing a categorical approach to their environment where many normal activities become taboo. A contributing factor to the success of salafism is that Saudi Arabia (and Yemen) offered free religious education. After the examination, students have traveled around the world with the message of how Islam should actually be interpreted. Salafists have a relatively high status among Muslims in general, thanks to the uncompromising religion they practice.Young people who are active in Salafist groups consider the community as a place to Islamize. Swedish United Dawa Center (SUDC) does missionary work, both on the streets and on the Internet. They invite prospective followers to spread Islam by learning a special "sales techniques" which is to "control the conversation and avoid difficult situations."The packaging of the message often goes on to highlight the benefits of Islam over other doctrines. An important issue is the role of women in society. Salafists and Islamists know it's hard to convince skeptical Westerners, and therefore chooses to emphasize the rights of women who strictly follow the Salafists moral codes.Women have the "right" to be supported by their men, as long as they live up to the primary duty to take care of children and the household. SUDC addressed their mission to sports clubs, the Swedish Migration Board, schools, politicians, the police and the public at large.It is not just Saudi, or Salafist, organizations who do missionary work for Islam in today's world. The Islamic term for missionary work is dawa which literally means to be "called" to Islam. There is no reaction to discrimination but is part of the offensive strategy that Islamists uses to spread Islamic ideas and make people sympathetic to the religion. All Islamists perceive dawa / missionary work one of the religious duties. For Islamists, Islam is a universal message that should benefit everyone.They believe that most problems facing humanity would be solved if everyone converts to Islam. It is expressed bluntly in the scripture that understanding Islam (partly funded by the then Swedish Immigration Board) where the Islamists say that the two most important tasks is "the duty to protect and serve the Muslim community in the immigration countries" and "the duty to bring Islam on the non-muslim society ".To do so, the goal is to build a public structure of Islamic activities and gain interpretation precedence over the question of what Islam is. An important part of this work is to spread a positive value loaded image of the religion. A variety of academics, journalists, Islamists, politicians and activists are involved in this ideological activity. Many, without knowing it.Globalisation has meant that Islamism has become part of the political reality of the secular nation-state. International and national organizations compete to gain influence by spreading their ideas among both non-Muslims and Muslims.Surprisingly, this is an area that is largely devoid of journalistic coverage. It is high time to change it if we want to understand the social and political processes going on in Salafist and other Islamist-inspired Swedish adolescents.AJE Carlbom is an Associate Professor of Social Anthropology and teaches Religious Affairs at Malmö University.Source: dagenssamhalle.se (translated by Red Ice)Editor's Note: Dear Aje, there are a LOT of areas within these and related questions that are devoid of journalistic coverage. How you can perceive this to be a surprise ... is in itself a surprise, considering the crippling politically correct environment in Sweden, where all questions related to immigration and the negative consequences it has, is pushed to the margins of public discourse.

  • Islamic State burned a woman alive for not engaging in an ‘extreme’ sex act, U.N. official says
    By Ishaan Tharoor May 22 at 1:35 PM "The Washington Post" Amid all the Islamic State's atrocities — its massacres of civilians, its beheading of hostages, its pillaging of antiquities — the systematic violence the jihadists have carried out against countless enslaved women and girls never fails to shock. For months now, we've heard appalling testimony from women who escaped the Islamic State's clutches, many of whom endured rape and other hideous acts of violence.Zainab Bangura, the U.N.'s special representative on sexual violence in conflict, recently conducted a tour of refugee camps in the shadow of the conflicts in Syria and Iraq, war-ravaged countries where the Islamic State commands swaths of territory. She heard a host of horror stories from victims and their families and recounted them in an interview earlier this week with the Middle East Eye, an independent regional news site. [The misguided debate over the Islam of the Islamic State.]"They are institutionalizing sexual violence," Bangura said of the Islamic State. "The brutalization of women and girls is central to their ideology."Bangura detailed the processes by which "pretty virgins" captured by the jihadists were bought and sold at auctions. Here's a chilling excerpt:After attacking a village, [the Islamic State] splits women from men and executes boys and men aged 14 and over. The women and mothers are separated; girls are stripped naked, tested for virginity and examined for breast size and prettiness. The youngest, and those considered the prettiest virgins fetch higher prices and are sent to Raqqa, the IS stronghold.There is a hierarchy: sheikhs get first choice, then emirs, then fighters. They often take three or four girls each and keep them for a month or so, until they grow tired of a girl, when she goes back to market. At slave auctions, buyers haggle fiercely, driving down prices by disparaging girls as flat-chested or unattractive.We heard about one girl who was traded 22 times, and another, who had escaped, told us that the sheikh who had captured her wrote his name on the back of her hand to show that she was his "property."Estimates vary, but there are believed to be somewhere between 3,000 and 5,000 women enslaved by the Islamic State. Many are Yazidis, a persecuted minority sect that the extremist Islamic State considers to be apostate "devil-worshippers," in part because of the Yazidis' ancient connection to the region's pre-Islamic past. The jihadists' treatment of Yazidi women, in particular, has been marked out by its contempt and savagery.Here's Bangura again:They commit rape, sexual slavery, forced prostitution and other acts of extreme brutality. We heard one case of a 20-year-old girl who was burned alive because she refused to perform an extreme sex act. We learned of many other sadistic sexual acts. We struggled to understand the mentality of people who commit such crimes.Hundreds of Yazidi women and girls have escaped their captors, either by running away, or being ransomed and rescued by their families. Bangura has urged international assistance in providing proper medical and "psychosocial" support to the escaped women, who have experienced terrible trauma. "It was painful for me. The countries I have worked on include Bosnia, Congo, South Sudan, Somalia and Central African Republic," says Bangura, a former former minister of Sierra Leone who is no stranger to conflicts. "I never saw anything like this. I cannot understand such inhumanity. I was sick, I couldn’t understand."In a separate interview with the Toronto Star, Bangura warned that neither U.N. agencies nor regional authorities are currently able to provide the sort of extensive care many of the escaped captives may need. She said the resilience and ability of these women to build back their lives would help "strip victory away" from the militants."This is precisely what [the Islamic State] does not want," says Bangura. "It can be a kind of vengeance, helping these women recover and giving them a path to thrive."
  • Iran’s Faux Dissident: The Curious Case of Akbar Ganji
    By Hamid Yazdanpanah, 22 May 2015 "http://www.iranian-americans.com" Akbar Ganji is on a mission, not as the voice of Iranian dissidents, but as an apologist for the regime in Tehran Iran’s dissidents are in a bind. As the international community focuses on the nuclear issue, the plight of Iran’s dissidents goes uncovered, as they face increased censorship and incarceration. Despite this atmosphere of repression and isolation in Iran, one supposed “dissident” seems to have no trouble getting press, and for all the wrong reasons.Akbar Ganji,  belongs to category of Iranian “dissident”,who do not oppose the regime in Iran in its entirety, but instead favor a specific faction in this regime. Under the guise “dissidents” and “Iran experts” Ganji and his ilk act as de facto spokesman for certain elements within the ruling regime, whose interests align with theirs.Far from using their platform to discuss the lack of political freedom in Iran, or to call for support of dissidents, Ganji acts as a connoisseur on the regime for the West and an apologist for Iran’s nuclear program.Ganji is often referred to as a “dissident”, yet little attention is paid to his past involvement with the brutal theocracy in Iran, nor is his current stance scrutinized. Far from being a champion of democracy, Ganji, like many so-called “reformists” in Iran are not opposed to the regime’s nuclear ambitions or its hegemonic policies in the region.It comes as no surprise that Ganji has cooperated with individuals like Trita Parsi of NIAC, including coordinating their activities to call for an end to the State Departments Democracy Fund on iran. Ironically, these individuals clearly stand to gain by promoting a certain agenda and faction within the regime. This type of service is profitable for these so called “dissidents”. This includes working closely with business interests like the Koch brothers, who have made millions doing illicit business with Iran. In 2010, the Koch brothers awarded Ganji with a $500,000 award via their Cato Institute.Incidentally Ganji is very careful never to mention his past activities or his involvement in the regime’s dirty work.Ganji’s own past includes stints as a commander in the Revolutionary Guards in the 1980’s, during the peak of Iran’s international terrorist activities and domestic repression. Ganji also held a position in the Iranian embassy in Turkey in the 1980’s, an era in which the Embassy served as the base for many illegal operations including the kidnapping and assassination of dissidents.All of this information is swept under the rug, and instead we are left with the impression that Ganji is some type of liberal reformist. However, all one has to do is read between the lines to understand Ganji’s true intentions.Ganji recently penned an article entitled “Why Tehran Fears the Iraqization of Iran on Nuclear Inspections”, in which he states the reasons why the Iranian regime is afraid of allowing UN inspectors free reign inside of Iran. What is remarkable about Ganji’s piece is not the banal solutions he gives, but his sudden reinvention as a spokesman for Iran’s nuclear demands. Taking a page from the playbook of Javad Zarif, Ganji claims that Iran’s refusal to comply with nuclear inspections, “… is not clearly understood in the West…”Ganji uses a tactic that is tried and true for the regime and its apologists. Blame it on American imperialism. Ganji brings up the case of the Iraq invasion of 2003, and claims that Iran is leery of repeating the same mistakes. Putting aside the disaster which was the Iraq war, one has to wonder how Ganji can make the argument that refusing to cooperate with inspections is a coherent strategy to prevent a repeat of such a war?Ganji has made outlandish claim in the area of human rights as well. Last year, in an interview with Al-Monitor Ganji had the audacity to claim that human rights in Iran were improving. This comes in the face of numerous reports, including by the UN that the human rights situation in Iran has in fact worsened.In 2013, Ganji wrote an extensive piece for Foreign Affairs on Ali Khamenei, in which he discusses among other things, Khamenei’s love of Western Novels. No mention is made of Khamenei’s role in the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran, which sent thousands to the gallows with no due process. Of course any such discussion may raise the question as to what Ganji was doing at the time. He also fails to mention the fact that Khamenei was not initially lined up as Khomeini’s successor. Ayatollah Hussein-Ali Montazeri, who was Khomeini’s chosen successor fell out favor based on his criticism of the 1988 massacre, forcing Khomeini to seek an individual who had the stomach for political violence.Instead of talking about the reality political life under a “Supreme Leader” like Khamenei, Ganji presents a myriad of quotes from Khamenei in various contexts to supposedly “uncover” his mindset for the Western audience. But to what end?  After spending considerable time formulating a portrait of Khamenei that can be easily consumed, Ganji gets to the crux of his argument.“The administration would also be well advised to take a comprehensive approach to the region and embed discussions of the Iranian nuclear program in a broader framework of regional security, bringing Washington’s allies on board and minimizing those allies’ desire to play the spoiler.”The United States must accept the regime’s legitimacy, even if it has none with its own people. Secondly, it should expand the negotiations to include broader talks on regional security, and bring “allies” on board.In other words, the United States should not only accept Iran’s nuclear program, but it should take steps to bring neighboring countries inline with accepting Iran’s hegemony in the region. In other words, trust Iran on its nuclear program while acquiescing on the regimes regional expansion, and lift sanctions while you’re at it.Ganji is masterful at taking Khamenei’s strategic goals and dressing them up as the inevitable steps necessary for compromise and peace.Ganji also fails to mention the fact that Khamenei controls an empire that is worth nearly 100 billion, utilizing the state to seize and expand his financial holdings. This reality, which has turned Iran into a fascist state in which the revolutionary guard act both as a paramilitary group and an economic mafia, cannot be blamed conveniently on the West. As a result it is not worth mentioning.In point of fact, Ganji’s entire article is centered on the assumption that Iran is a country under threat and as a result, freedom can be sacrificed in the face of a “foreign threat”. These justifications are repeated everyday in the judiciary of the Islamic Republic as dissidents are charged with aiding foreign powers, or endangering national security. Yet Ganji has no problems in reiterating them, and in fact justifying them.Instead of being a voice for dissidents, we see Ganji’s endgame quite clearly.  It is not unlike that of Trita Parsi and the regimes lobby in the West. The first step is to cast Iran as a mysterious and misunderstood actor, which has been the victim of poor policy decisions by the West. Then explain how the West can vindicate itself by removing sanctions and recognizing the Ayatollahs a necessary partner in the region. Throw in a few fancy words about democracy and patience and dialogue and you are sure to leave the Western reader feeling great about your policy solution. Just don’t mention the reality for real dissidents in Iran, that might raise questions that Akbar Ganji can’t answer.Hamid Yazdan Panah is an attorney focused on asylum and immigration in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is also a human rights activist focused on the Middle East and Iran.
  • Macedonia: Playing Solitaire with Marked Cards
    By Pyotr ISKENDEROV | 22.05.2015 | 00:00 "Strategic Culture Foundation" As the events in Macedonia unfold, the situation starts to look more like an orange revolution orchestrated from outside. Those who stay behind it use the experience of former Yugoslavia, the post-Soviet space, North Africa and the Middle East. At the start protests are incited to put forward economic demands. Non-government organizations join in, the public opinion is influenced by world media, especially in the European Union member states. The organizers use pro-EU and Euro-Atlantic sentiments of protesters for their own ends (they are told that the being pro-EU and pro-NATO means fighting for democracy). Round tables and talks are organized with the presence of the United States and the European Union. The European Council has already expressed «its grave concern regarding the deteriorating situation in the country, in particular in the area of rule of law, fundamental rights and freedom of media, which are core democratic values at the heart of the EU and its enlargement policy. In the interest of the citizens, democracy, rule of law and political stability, the Council urges political leaders to rapidly address those concerns».The Albanian factor greatly influences the events. It may lead to involvement of other forces and even neighboring states. Albanian radicals started the «orange revolution style» protests in Kumanovo and other places. Once started it will not end up with the resignation of the government headed by Nikola Gruevski. The interests of Albanian radicals and Zoran Zaev, the political leader of the Social Democratic Union of Macedonia (SDSM), coincide temporarily and only at tactical level, there are no strategic common goals. Normally Macedonian Albanians have one of their parties in a ruling coalition, either the Democratic Union for Integration led by Ali Ahmeti or the Democratic Party of Albanians headed by Menduh Thaçi (the both leaders closely tied to Kosovo radicals). One of the parties remains in opposition to maintain the system of checks and balances. Albanians can always take part in the movement to make the government resign, if need be. Their goals do not include economic progress of the country or foreign policy objectives but rather the defending the interests of Albanian diaspora. The protests by Albanian activists had been preceded by the statement made by Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, «Albania and Kosovo may unite in a classic manner, if the European Union (EU) does not open the road to Kosovo’s European integration,» he said in a television debate on Klan TV in Kosovo, which was also attended by Kosovo Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Hashim Thaci. According to Mr. Rama the unification of Kosovo and Albania had two alternatives and both were up to the EU.«The first alternative is unification within the EU but if the Union continues closing its doors to Kosovo’s integration, the two counties may be forced to unite in a classic manner», the Prime Minister remarked. The Pristina’s Foreign Ministry has already launched «a note of protest» to Skopje over crackdown on terrorist groups in Kumanovo. Ben Blushi, an Albania MP, visited the place to say that «Macedonia has a serious problem with democracy. I’m sorry to say but it’s not a democratic country».The Albanian news agency AND wrote on its home page that Zoran Zaev is facing a hard choice. Ali Ahmeti keeps silent. The Albanian factor and economic difficulties to hinder European integration are not the only problems faced by Macedonia. There is another reason widely discussed in Turkey. Turkish Habertürk writes that the events in Macedonia are part of a big game played to hinder the implementation of Turkish Stream. According to the newspaper, Macedonia has become important to the US as it could become the only way for Russia’s proposed Turkish Stream pipeline to reach Central Europe. The US wants to organize an orange revolution in Macedonia to prevent Turkish Stream going through its territory.Yeni Şafak agrees with this opinion. It writes that Turkish Stream creates new opportunities for Turkey. If implemented, the project will turn the country into the key element of regional energy system. That’s one of the things the United States wants to prevent along with the rise of Russia. It puts into doubt the loyalty of Ankara, its traditional partner. [1] Richard Morningstar, the Founding Director of the Atlantic Council's New Global Energy Center and former US ambassador to Azerbaijan told noted Turkey and Azerbaijan have strong relations, and Turkey would not allow the Turkish Stream pipeline project to compete with TANAP. «I'll be surprised if Turkey, implementing the Turkish Stream, will reduce the chances of the TANAP project,» Mr. Morningstar said. So he doubts the viability of the project. The signal is clear. His goal is to make Turkey abandon plans for energy cooperation with Russia. A coup in Macedonia (to be a transit country according to Turkish Stream plans), or even total destabilization of the situation there, would be timely if Turkey were adamant protecting its national interests.The United States and its allies in Brussels are accustomed to play with marked cards, it would be logical to expect the further exacerbation of the situation on the way of Turkish Stream. The destabilization plans may include Serbia, especially in the southern municipalities of municipalities of Presevo, Medvejda, and Bujanovac. The conspiracy will be carried out under the good old slogans calling for «democracy».
  • Moscow ready to supply weapons to Iraq to help fight ISIS
    Reuters / Stringer By RT Moscow and Baghdad have been expanding military cooperation, President Vladimir Putin said, and Russia is ready to supply weapons to Iraq to aid the fight against Islamic State militants’ advance in the region, said Russia’s FM Sergey Lavrov.“We will make all efforts to meet [Iraq’s] possible requests, to ensure it has the defense capability and the ability to drive out of its territories Islamic State [formerly ISIS, or ISIL] and other terrorists," Lavrov told reporters, speaking ahead of talks in Moscow between Putin and Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi on Thursday."We have very close and tight military-technical cooperation [with Iraq]," he said.“Unlike some other countries, we are ready to supply weapons to Iraq without preconditions, based on the fact that Iraq, Syria and Egypt are on the forefront of the struggle against terrorism.” raq has been Russia's longtime partner and over the past two years bilateral trade turnover has grown 10-fold, Putin said at the meeting with Iraq's PM on Thursday."Iraq has been our longtime and reliable partner in the region. Despite all the hardships in the world economy and difficulties in the region, our relations have been developing successfully," Putin said.Putin said that Russia has been implementing major projects in Iraq and Russian investments there are estimated at billions of dollars. He added that Moscow will continue civilian, military and technical cooperation with Iraq.Islamic State advancesIn a major setback, Iraqi forces have retreated from a compound they used as a command center in Ramadi, losing control of Anbar’s provincial capital to Islamic State militants. Local security officials said that the militants carried out mass killings of Iraqi security forces and civilians, AP reported Monday. The two days of fighting in Ramadi this weekend had displaced around 8,000 people according to the International Organization for Migration.In another development, IS has taken over a strategic crossing between Syria and Iraq, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group reported on Thursday.Syrian security forces withdrew from the al-Tanf border after the IS advance. In response, Iraqi forces also withdrew from their side of the border, known as al-Waleed. The crossing is located in Syria’s Homs province, where IS militants captured Syria’s historic city of Palmyra, a UNESCO landmark, on Wednesday after gaining full control of the city. The group already controls wide areas in Syria's north and east. This was the first time the jihadists have taken a large population center directly from Syrian pro-government forces.Despite the IS advance in Iraq and Syria, the Pentagon has until recently continued to insist that the US-led air campaign is working.“We believe across Iraq and Syria that Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the militant group] is losing and remains on the defensive,” said Marine Brig. Gen. Thomas D. Weidley, chief of staff for Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve on Friday.The US began its bombing campaign in Iraq in August 2014 and in Syria the following month. Syrian President Bashar Assad repeatedly pointed out that the bombardments are an illegal intervention unauthorized by a UN Security Council resolution, and so violate the sovereignty of Syria. He also said that the Syrian army has been conducting ground operations as well as airstrikes against terrorists which are larger than that those launched by the alliance. In a separate development, the Pentagon said Thursday that the US will deliver 2,000 AT-4 anti-tank rockets to Iraq as soon as next week. This is double the number announced on Wednesday and is intended to help the beleaguered Iraqi army combat suicide car bombings used by Islamic State.The IS carried out about 30 suicide car bombings in taking the Iraqi city of Ramadi last weekend. Spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said that the anti-tank rockets would help the Iraqi army stop approaching suicide bombers, driving vehicles packed with explosives, from a distance. Relying on small arms fire to accomplish the same task requires killing the driver or taking out the engine.
  • Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: If You Wanted to Join Islamic State Jihad…
    By Peter B Collins | May 21, 2015 Peter B. Collins Presents Peter van Buren Our guest maxed out on the scary stories of the Islamic State using social media to recruit Americans to fight in Syria, so he decided to check out the action, knowing the risk of a visit from Big Brother. In this often-humorous exchange, Peter van Buren found some travel tips, direct flights to Syria and inspirational screeds, but no application form or screening process. We use this to open a deeper conversation about FBI frame-ups of Americans accused of trying to join IS, and the insertion of these largely unproven cases into the media fear machinery and Washington’s highly limited debate about the surveillance state. And van Buren has some choice words for his former boss, regarding Hillary Clinton’s email imbroglio.* Peter van Buren spent 20 years working at the State Department and was forced into retirement after publication of his book We Meant Well, which described his misadventures managing reconstruction in Iraq.

  • Does George Soros Control the Obama White House?
    By Wayne MADSEN | 21.05.2015 | 10:16 "Strategic Culture Foundation" Five major banks agreed to plead guilty to criminal charges brought by the U.S. Department of Justice for manipulating the exchange rates of U.S. dollars and euros. The banks were Citicorp, J.P. Morgan Chase, Barclays, Bank of America, and the Royal Bank of Scotland. A sixth bank, UBS Group, agreed to plead guilty to manipulating interest rates after the Justice Department granted it immunity on the exchange rate criminal charges. The banks will pay an estimated $5.8 billion in fines to the United States. However, only corporations were charged criminally. Not one individual banking executive was indicted in the currency manipulation scam.The reason for no personal indictments is simple. George Soros, the man who opened up his checkbook in 2008 and 2012 for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign and is estimated to have poured millions of dollars into Obama’s coffers, made his hundreds of billions of dollars primarily from the same type of international currency manipulation that landed the five banks into trouble. Had Attorney General Loretta Lynch sought indictments against banking executives, any defense lawyer worth his or her salt would have brought up the fact that Soros, Obama’s «money bags», had evaded prosecution for the very same crimes for decades. The cries of uneven application of the law would have been shouted from defense tables at U.S. court houses around the United States.Soros’s currency manipulation scheming saw its heyday during the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s. It was during a time when Soros’s friend, Bill Clinton, occupied the White House. Although Soros’s currency exchange scams rocked stock exchanges around the Pacific Rim, there was no attempt by Clinton’s Justice Department to indict Soros, an emigré from Hungary, to justice. One of the worst-hit countries from Soros’s currency manipulation was Malaysia, which saw its ringgit plummet in value. Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamed thundered that Soros was part of an international Jewish bankers’ conspiracy to attack the Malaysian economy. Mohamed said, «We do not want to say that this is a plot by the Jews, but in reality it is a Jew who triggered the currency plunge, and coincidentally Soros is a Jew.» Mohamed was condemned for «anti-Semitic» remarks but he was not the only leader to charge Soros with the very same currency speculation that recently landed the «Big 6» banks into criminal trouble. Soros’s short-selling the Thai baht resulted in the government of Prime Minister Chavalit Yongchaiyudh calling Soros an «economic war criminal.»In 1992, Soros dumped £10 billion based on insider information that the pound would be devalued after Britain’s withdrawal from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism. Soros became known as «the Man who broke the Bank of England.» Soros’s attack on pound sterling caused the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Norman Lamont, to borrow £15 billion with an overall cost to Her Majesty’s Treasury of £3.4 billion. A few years earlier, in 1988, Soros was convicted of insider trading by the French Bourse regulatory authority. Soros had enough insider information that it enabled him to buy sizable chunks of the shares of four major French companies: Société Générale, Indo-Suez Bank, Paribas, and the Compagnie Générale d'Électricité. Soros’s conviction on insider trading was upheld by the European Court of Human Rights in 2006 and the multi-billionaire’s appeal of its earlier decision was rejected in 2011.Soros’s influence not only extends over the Justice Department’s decision not to prosecute individual bankers for currency manipulation but also Obama’s foreign policy. Soros’s Open Society Institute and Foundation, as well as his generous gift, some would say bribe, of $100 million to Human Rights Watch and his sponsorship, along with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded National Endowment for Democracy (NED), of a number of Eastern and Central European front organizations has given the global hedge fund tycoon an inordinate amount of influence over U.S. foreign policy. Soros’s fingerprints on manipulation of political parties, media organizations and web sites, «civil society» groups, and governments, sometimes accomplished in league with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, the operations of which Soros inherited from the Central Intelligence Agency, can be seen in «color revolutions» from Georgia and Ukraine to Macedonia and Serbia.Soros has supported the independence of Kosovo, the U.S. and NATO protectorate that recently launched terrorist attacks on neighboring Macedonia from its soil. Kosovo and its U.S. military base at Camp Bondsteel serve as logistics points for the allegedly banned Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), of which Kosovo Foreign Minister Hashim Thaci was once the chief, to attempt to stir up ethnic Albanians who are working with the Soros-funded opposition to overthrow the government of Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski.The United States, perhaps representing the interests of Soros and his cabal of «democracy manipulators», was quiet as Macedonia discovered U.S. passports among the dead KLA terrorists found after their foray from Kosovo into the Macedonian town of Kumanovo. The recent attempt to force a revolution in Macedonia was not without the familiar Soros «theme.» As anti-government protesters teemed through the central square of Skopje, a female employee of the Soros-financed Helsinki Committee for Human Rights in Macedonia applied a heavy amount of red lipstick on herself and then proceeded to plant a kiss on the riot shield of a policeman. The attempt to stage a Kiev-like «Maidan Revolution» in Skopje became known as the «Lipstick Revolution» as Soros-financed media transmitted the photograph of the kiss imprint to web sites and news organizations around the world. In every case where the Soros organization engages in «democracy manipulation», the Obama-appointed U.S. ambassadors are willing accomplices. This was the case in Kiev with Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt – and his boss and friend Victoria Nuland, the chief of the State Department’s Europe/Eurasia bureau -- in Skopje with Ambassador Jess Baily, and in a number of other countries, from Algeria to Zimbabwe and Mongolia to Moldova.Soros is a supporter of U.S. and European Union economic sanctions on Russia. However, Soros is also a keen manipulator of economic crises and he has taken advantage of artificial crisis brought about by Western sanctions against Russia to make money on investments designed to bypass Russian gas pipeline projects, such as the Turkish Stream project that is to bring gas from Russia to Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, and Hungary. Soros’s financial support for the «Lipstick revolutionaries» in Macedonia is a clear attempt to dislodge that country from the Turkish Stream deal. Meanwhile, Soros and his close friend and business associate, Nathaniel Rothschild, have virtually purchased the nation of Montenegro, which, along with Croatia, are being dangled as alternate source of gas from U.S. tankers distributing it from new offshore gas terminals to be built in the Adriatic Sea. Oil and gas exploration companies, in which Soros has vested interests, are drilling in pristine Montenegro and Croatian waters. With Mr. Soros, the so-called defender of freedom, liberty, and the environment, comes phony staged revolutions, inter-ethnic bloodshed and civil wars, and the specter of off-shore platforms, fossil fuel marine terminals, supertankers polluting idyllic maritime regions, from the Adriatic coast to the Gulf of Mexico and the Alaskan Arctic North to Alberta prairies.Soros’s domination of the Obama administration can be seen in Obama’s selections for not only Cabinet-level positions but, more importantly, in the secondary and tertiary levels of government where policy is produced. It is at these levels where Soros’s minions concoct foreign, economic, and defense policies that are indistinguishable from those of Soros. However, the Justice Department dared not indict individual bankers for currency manipulation. Had it done so, it would have also had to indict its true master, Mr. Soros.
  • More Russian, Chinese Companies Switching to Yuan Transactions – Bank
    By Sputnik The volume of currency exchange operations 'ruble to yuan' saw a six-fold increase in the first quarter of 2015 in comparison with the first quarter of 2014.VLADIVOSTOK (Sputnik) — A rapid increase in the number of ruble to yuan currency exchange operations and bank accounts opened in yuan signify that more and more Russian and Chinese businesses are switching into mutual payments in the Chinese currency, deputy chairman of Russia’s VTB Bank management board Mikhail Oseevskiy said Thursday.“In first quarter of 2015 the volume of currency exchange operations 'ruble to yuan' saw a six-fold increase as opposed to the first quarter of 2014. The number of companies opening accounts in yuan is increasing.”He added that currently most Chinese companies are oriented primarily at transacting in US dollars due to the significant volume of Chinese exports to the United States. However, VTB’s branch in Shanghai, according to Oseevskiy, is working actively to educate Russia’s Chinese partners on the benefits of using national currencies in mutual payments.“In some time we will see Chinese companies taking loans in rubles, I believe this will be the practice of the nearest future,” Oseevskiy said. China’s Yuan Joins Top Five Payment Currencies The main benefits of mutual payment in national currencies are an absence of currency conversion charges, direct payment and higher transparency in relations between banks.Following a deterioration of Russia's relations with the West over its alleged participation in the Ukrainian conflict, Moscow has increased its economic cooperation within BRICS, the Asia-Pacific region and Latin America.Currently, Russia is China’s ninth-largest trading partner.
  • De-Manufacturing Consent with Guillermo Jimenez- ISIS in Texas?
    By Guillermo Jimenez | May 20, 2015 Guillermo Jimenez Presents Tom Secker On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent Tom Secker joins Guillermo to discuss the shooting in Garland, Texas that occurred in early May, when two men — Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi — allegedly acting under orders from the Islamic State (ISIS) attacked the Mohammed Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest at the Curtis Culwell Center. The contest to award $10,000 to the "best drawing of the prophet Mohammed" was held by Pamela Geller's American Freedom Defense Initiative, under the auspices of "free speech," and hosted speakers such as Dutch politician and anti-Islam activist Geert Wilders.We discuss the rather flimsy claims of ISIS responsibility for the shooting; the questionable circumstances of the shooting itself and the heightened security presence at the event (including SWAT, FBI, and ATF); the FBI's foreknowledge and its surveillance of Simpson since at least 20007; and the potential for this to have been a "Gladio-style" false flag event. We also discuss the obvious comparisons to the Charlie Hebdo shooting, why Charlie Hebdo cartoonists have attempted to distance themselves from Geller's contest, and why some — even in the alternative media — have fallen into the binary-opposition trap and wrongly defend Geller's Islamophobia on free-speech grounds.Listen to the Preview Clip Here
