The US ambassador to Lebanon, Dorothy Shea, thinks she’s smarter than Hassan Nasrallah.

Yet, evidence shows that since Trump appointed her as ambassador to Lebanon back in February 2020, every dastardly trap she has placed before Mr. Nasrallah and his Hezbollah resistance group has failed. Proof of this failure is that Hezbollah keeps growing stronger and stronger, untouched by all external or internal forces hellbent on destroying the Lebanese resistance group. Failed simply because Dorothy is not as smart as she thinks she is. Most certainly, she is not as intelligent as the nifty leader of Hezbollah.

Having spent some three years working as Deputy Principal Officer at the US Consulate General in Jerusalem immediately prior to her post in Beirut, Dorothy no doubt continues to have a direct hotline to the Israeli Prime Minister’s office, if not to his direct cell phone; and no doubt, every morning, her first official word from Beirut is ‘shalom’.

Dorothy does not behave like a diplomat. Instead, she behaves like an eye-patched leader of a sketchy militia: laying aside all diplomatic decorum and behaviorism and charging forth into every single aspect of Lebanese social, economic and political life, with the blatant intent of widening existing societal fissures in Lebanon, as well as adding new ones: aiming for a sectarian war that would cause the wholesale mass murder of innocents. One could say that she behaves as the Jews do in DC. A Puss in Boots, but utterly charmless and physically unattractive. Puss in Boots with mouth bigger than boots. So much so that last year, a Lebanese judge banned Lebanese media from interviewing Dorothy for her atrocious and blatant attempts at creating sectarian warfare in Lebanon. Needless to say, Dorothy the ‘ambassador’ gave the proverbial middle finger to this native judge while hiding behind the skirts of her diplomatic immunity. She continues to pollute Lebanese media and its political landscape with daily feces propelled out of all her orifices. Yes, she literally defecates on Lebanon every day, while feigning love and affection for the Lebanese people. Because the Lebanese resistance group, Hezbollah, defeated Israel twice already on the battlefield, Dorothy’s instruction since taking the ambassadorship has been to starve the Lebanese population as punishment for these victories. Tel Aviv must love her for her Zionist activism and zeal. The Mossad must be sending her monthly boxes of Cuban cigars.

And I’ll remind American taxpayers here that their hard-earned taxes are being spent on starving populations in the middle east, when bombing them to smithereens is not feasible. Starving millions of people who have done absolutely no harm to the American people. I’ll remind taxpayers that they are paying Dorothy’s wages while she is spreading anti-Americanism with her bolshie, toxic behaviorism overseas. I’ll remind them that since 2005, no less than \$30 billion have been spent on destroying the Lebanon as a means of demoting Hezbollah – all for the benefit of Israel and Israel alone. And although Lebanon’s society is currently teetering on total collapse due to Dorothy’s malicious and malignant schemes, yet Hezbollah itself appears untouched by this exuberant, negative expenditure. And I will add here that Lebanon has suffered from corrupt governments for some thirty years, yet all this while, the Lebanese collective enjoyed a decent lifestyle and were never in need. They became needy when Dorothy came to town.

Perhaps when she lived in Israel, Dorothy got everything she wanted. But in Lebanon, what Dorothy wants, Dorothy doesn’t get. Hassan has insured this. Time and time again, he has outsmarted all her plans to create civil war in Lebanon. All straight and curve-balls that Dorothy has daily thrown at Hassan have missed and landed either way off mark, or, unfortunately, on innocent, civilian bystanders.

Let us be clear here that the traditional role of an ambassador is to work the trade and Intel files, as well as to assist expats in a variety of bureaucratic and legal matters. It is never the job of a diplomat to act politically or to make inciteful, political statements concerning the host nation. Never! It is abnormal behavior for a diplomat to be an in-your-face politico whose name and incendiary words are headlines in local media on a daily basis. Yet, Dorothy Shea swans about the Lebanon like a privileged colonialist: doing exactly that and doing it with shameless gusto.

She is proud that she has turbo-charged the destruction of Lebanon. But she is very angry that the Hezbollah remains untouched. Livid that Hassan remains leagues ahead of her diabolical plans. How dare Hassan challenge her, the mighty Queen Sheba herself?! She Who Must Be Obeyed, must be obeyed or else!

Yet, she is not obeyed by Hassan. Currently, the genocidal-minded Dorothy is reeling from the latest punch in the teeth that Hassan metaphorically gave her last week, when he defied US sanctions on Lebanon and announced that Iranian fuel ships are now headed to fuel-starved Lebanon: a miserable and existential shortage that Dorothy herself had engineered for the Lebanese people through her incessant, corrupt interference in absolutely all internal Lebanese affairs bar none. (She has even interfered in local, district elections, personally rejecting and approving candidates!). Her destructive meddling is compounded by the Caesar Act sanctions that her chowderhead boss, Trump, had imposed on the Lebanon at the behest of Tel Aviv. Because Israelis dare not kill Lebanese people with their missiles for fear of an equal Hezbollah retaliation, starving the Lebanese people en mass was to be their path to mass murder of said Lebanese; and thus Dorothy has been assigned the task of insuring that all trade and energy doors were closed to the Lebanese, and all paths to a much-needed new government blocked and blocked some more, ad infinitum. Dorothy has forbidden the Lebanon from trading with any country in the world, and simultaneously forbidden friendly nations from delivering any aid to Lebanon’s starving population. She has appeared more than happy this past year and a half to just watch the very fabric of Lebanon disintegrate under her ‘ambassadorship’ – doing absolutely nothing to help the long-suffering, collective Lebanese people whatsoever. Au contraire, the more Lebanon’s system broke down, the more the people suffered, and the more Dorothy jumped with joy and stirred the sectarian embers further.

It appears that not only are Hezbollah and the Lebanese population as a whole a target for destruction by Dorothy, but so is the Lebanese government itself. She does not even want a government for the Lebanon to exist. She wants for Lebanon what Israel wants: wiping Lebanon and its flag right off the map and turning it into many-flagged, sectarian enclaves and warring Bantustans instead. Simply, everyone and everything Lebanese is her target for destruction.

Of course, Dorothy gets much help from powerful Lebanese persons and political entities who are opposed to Hezbollah. Fortunately for the Lebanon, these people do not represent the majority of the Lebanese. Known Lebanese members of Dorothy’s team are handsomely paid in mega dollars to destroy their own country, just so that they can boost their Swiss bank accounts and augment their seats of power by getting rid of the most popular party in the Lebanon: the Hezbollah. These unsavory, treasonous Lebanese are ideologically aligned with fascism and predatory globalism, and they are also known for being supporters of the Israeli enemy and its religio-colonialist project in the Levant. Their names and professional titles are known all over the Lebanon, and they are as follows:

  • Riyad Salame is a Maronite Christian who heads the Lebanese Central Bank (Banque Du Liban). He is the very man who colluded with Dorothy to collapse the local Lebanese currency in order to initiate the ‘starvation plan’ of his own people. He is also behind the financial pyramid scheme that suddenly, and by his design, collapsed a year ago. He is also behind the ‘Capital Control’ system that has been imposed on all bank account holders since the collapse of the Lebanese Lira. This system limits monthly withdrawals of all account holders, be they rich or poor, to a pitiful \$400 per month: thus consigning both rich and poor to the same poverty pot. This system is currently holding hostage all of the people’s earnings and life-savings. Salame continues to shamelessly collude with the haters of Lebanon, while hiding some twenty billion dollars that suddenly went missing out of the country a year and a half ago. He claims no knowledge of where this vast amount went. He has not been held accountable by Lebanese law, nor has he lost his highest banking office in the nation, all because he has Dorothy’s full political protection.
  • Sa mir Gaegae, is a Maronite Christian who is a convicted war criminal who colluded with Israel during its 18 years of occupation of Lebanon back in the ’80’s and 90’s, causing thus the torture, the disappearance, and the mass murder of tens of thousands of Lebanese civilians. And Ironically, it was Hezbollah’s hands, after the eviction of Israeli forces from Lebanon, who worked for his clemency, thus sparing him an execution. The ingrate Gaegae is now also best friends with both Saudi Arabia and Israel: tasked by them too to destroy Hezbollah, even at the cost of destroying Lebanon itself.
  • Patriarch Bechara Boutros al-Rah, who holds the highest seat in the Lebanese Maronite church, is also known for regularly inciting sectarianism during his speeches and sermons. He became infamous for breaking a Lebanese law that forbids the cooperation or promotion of the Israeli enemy when he illegally visited Israel several years ago with the excuse of “I want to pray in Jerusalem.” No doubt he dined at Jewish Masonic Lodges there too. He adamantly refuses to separate ‘church from state’. He is a regular visitor to the US embassy in Beirut and all his political statements read like memos issued by Tel Aviv. He supports normalization with Israel that continues to occupy the Lebanese Shebaa Farms. For a religious Christian leader, he appears to devote his time to spreading the message of the Synagogue of Satan instead of the message of Jesus.
  • NGO’s. The Lebanese population is some 4.6 million natives currently residing in Lebanon, yet Lebanon has over an astounding 10.000 NGO groups, with 92% of them being funded by foreign governments and other dubious Western and oil-Arab institutions. These shady NGOs are tasked with ‘inflaming’ the masses and creating a Color Revolution in the Lebanon. They have proved that they can successfully gather the protesting masses with matching banners and baseball hats, but they have failed to achieve their anarchic objective after several attempts. They are well-paid agents of chaos who swarm the Lebanon like biblical locust: receiving all their instruction from Dorothy’s office at the American embassy in Beirut; and eating all that great, green leaf we call ‘dollars’ right off Dorothy’s hand.

One can clearly discern that the American embassy in Beirut is more of a war theater against the Lebanese themselves, than it is a peaceful salon of diplomacy and trade activity.

Dorothy also enjoys the occasional support from other powerful Lebanese who may not share her ideology, but assist her when called upon because they are beholden to the US via their investment projects in the US, and also via their children and grandchildren who reside and study in the US. Yes, just like mafias threaten people with harm done to their businesses and families, so does Dorothy threaten her second tier of helpers, thus they always oblige. Saad Hariri (a Sunni leader), Walid Jumblatt (a Druze leader), and Nabih Berri (a Shia leader) are examples of second-tier helpers of the US embassy in Beirut.

Here I would add that although Dorothy’s Lebanese inner circle leaders are all Christian Maronites, between them, they actually represent the minority of Maronites in Lebanon. The majority of Maronites belong to the Maronite President Aoun’s party, who are allies and supporters of Hezbollah. And it appears that the Maronites who are anti Hezbollah are fundamentally Islamophobic, all due to an aftertaste that the brutal, Sunni Ottoman Empire left in their mouths back in 1922, when the Ottoman Empire collapsed and its soldiers finally exited Lebanon after some 500 years of miserable colonization.

Aside from creating the total collapse of the Lebanon, financially, socially and politically, it is germane here to give a summary of what the enemies of Hezbollah and Lebanon itself hoped to achieve with their treachery and sedition:

1- IMF enslavement of Lebanon’s financial life.

2- Disarming Hezbollah and the dismantlement of the Lebanese army, to be replaced with UN or NATO troops that answer to Tel Aviv and DC.

3- Destroying the current governmental system and the insertion of a new, federalized political theater where only enemies of the Hezbollah are in positions of power.

4- Naturalization into Lebanese citizenship of captive Sunni-Syrian refugees who are forbidden by the West to return to Syria, thus changing the voting demographic of Lebanon to favor Saudi-sponsored blocks (means Israeli-centric). This plan even has the temerity to favor Syrian naturalization over Palestinian one, even though Palestinian refugees have been stuck in Lebanon since 1948.

5- Allow Israel to annex gas field ‘Block 9’ that sits in the southern Lebanese maritime waters and is considered to be the richest field in the Lebanon waters.

6- Allow Israel to annex the Lebanese Litani River that’s some 23.6 miles from the Israeli border.

7- Through educational and cultural projects, unleashing insidious social-engineering programs such as ‘woke’, opioid and porn addiction, religious irreverence, cultural Marxism, and what I like to call the ‘gender bandito’ culture. In other words, social-engineering programs that shred the very fabric of traditional Lebanese life and culture. And sanity.

8- The looting and destruction of Lebanon’s museums and ancient artifacts so as to wipe out the ancient identity of the Lebanon.

9- Bantustaning and turning rural landscapes into militarized zones, and turning cities and towns into police states overseen by Israel-friendly UN or NATO forces.

10- Normalization with Israel through forced trade with Tel Aviv – the only entity Lebanon would be allowed to trade with.

And last but not least:

11- Empty Lebanon of its Christian population who are mainly concentrated in the Mount Lebanon area, but also scattered wide in villages and towns all over the Lebanon.

This is a project that analysts say has been handed to the current Lebanese Maronite Patriarch, Bechara Boutros al-Rahi. His consistent sectarian incitement is intended to promote a religious civil war that will find the majority of Lebanese Christians fleeing the Lebanon as political refugees to mainly Canada and France, where they already have immigration programs that are specifically preferential and lucrative to Lebanese Christian applicants. Yes, France and Canada are partners with the US in the destruction of Lebanon. In fact, all other Western nations and some Arab ones too are also conspirators and abettors in this diabolical, mass-murderous plan.

The Patriarch’s other vital mission is to turn Maronite Aounist voters against President Aoun’s party – driving them to the arms of Saudi-sponsored Samir Gaegae, who is a Maronite himself too and an infamous friend of Israel – not forgetting here his close friendship with Dorothy the Destroyer.

Because Lebanon is the only Christian-Arab country, and Christian Lebanese are fundamental to Lebanese history, heritage and identity, removing them from the Lebanon facilitates the Jewish plan of turning Lebanon into a zombie without a national, rooted identity, all in preparation for future Judeofication of the Lebanon, as per the Yinon Plan.

Of course, Dorothy here is a mere soldier for Tel Aviv. But still, all responsibility of Lebanon’s current destruction lays at her feet for her absolute devotion and willingness to participate and manage this grand and evil project for the Lebanon. She is responsible for the current starvation and the misery of millions of Lebanese, Christian and Muslim alike, because she is the most powerful mover and shaker in the Lebanon: moving and shaking it towards its mass grave.

Even though this ‘starvation plan’ has been well conceived and executed with the help of internal traitors, yet Hezbollah and its Lebanese allies continue to stand like firm walls in its path. Hassan and his patriotism continue to outsmart Dorothy. In fact, so much so that now Hezbollah has unexpectedly taken up the new mantle of ‘economic resistance’, as opposed to only a military one. Only two weeks go, Dorothy’s breathless destruction literally forced the Hezbollah to actively enter the economic war against the Lebanon, after a year and a half of passivity. They are economically-resisting now by defying the Caesar’s Act and all other members of Dorothy’s inner circle. This defiance comes in the shape of organizing Iranian fuel ships to arrive to Lebanon as aid for the utterly desperate people of the Lebanon.

The first Iranian fuel ship is due to imminently arrive to Lebanese shores. Many more Iranian ships are slated thereafter, carrying much needed life-saving medicine and food to the needy Lebanese.

Hassan has botched all nefarious plans and checkmated Dorothy with this move. He has promised that any harm done to these Iranian aid ships will result in instant, open warfare against Israel. The man always means what he says. And he always delivers on his word. The Israelis know this only too well. They will be red-faced and watching through their north-pointing binoculars, a long stream of Iranian ships docking a mere hop away from Haifa port. This was never part of their plan. Their plan was to starve the Lebanon en mass so as to bring it to its knees and take from it what they want; as well as to get rid of Iran-friendly Hezbollah. Instead, they’re ending up with a stronger Hezbollah bringing in Iranian aid ships that will feed the Lebanese people and provide them with desperately needed medicine and fuel. Iranian ships that will be seen by most Lebanese as ‘savior ships’, while Hezbollah will be crowned as ‘savior of Lebanon’ for resisting and breaking the illegal, US economic siege on the Lebanon.

Begs the question here, therefore: will the Mossad continue to send Dorothy her boxes of Cuban cigars?

    UPDATE ON THE FIRST IRANIAN FUEL SHIP:

    I’m hearing from reliable sources that the first Iranian fuel ship had actually already arrived and docked in Zahrani waters (south Lebanon) two days ago. It waited there for 48 hours and today, it will unload some 17 million liters of mazot in a storage depot in Zahrani, after which it will make its way north to the Lebanese city of Tripoli where it will deposit another 19 million liters of mazot there. Distribution of all this Iranian mazot will begin on Monday.

    The 48 hour wait apparently was due to insuring that all assigned distribution centers were legally and logistically ready to receive.

    They’ve kept all this docking activity quiet. The humble resistance does not need whistles and bells when doing the right thing.

    Because it was rich Shias who paid for this first load, and because it greatly helps the local Lira currency to make a huge purchase in Lebanese Liras and not dollars at this most desperate of times, the mazot will be priced at 8.000LL per liter. Before the financial crisis opened wide a good year ago, it was priced at 3.000LL. The current black market price is 350.000LL per liter. Therefore, this pricing of 8.000LL is extremely fair – it somewhat resuscitates the Lebanese Lira, as well as kick the black marketeers and hoarders right smack in the gonads.

    The shia group of buyers of this cargo are not in it for the money, nor are they in the business of fuel trading – nor do they intend to be in this business. They are doing it for their countryfolk. And putting a (low) price tag on the liter stops the Iranophobes in Lebanon from shrieking like triggered banshees that they don’t want ANY ‘Iranian gifts’ anywhere near them. Well, it’s not a ‘gift’ if it’s been paid for. This cargo, because it’s been actually purchased by Lebanese is therefore no longer ‘Iranian’, but legal Lebanese cargo owned and brought in by (Shia) Leb patriots.

    The cargo’s total of 36 million liters of mazot are destined to be distributed to only hospitals, water reservoirs and bakeries – for obvious reasons. The next ship will carry medicines, medical equipment and parts, and food stuff. The third will bring in petrol that will be distributed to gas stations all over the Lebanon, for the use of the masses. Then more and more ships will come bringing in more mazot, more petrol for cars, more meds and foods etc and so on and so forth.

    It looks like within 2-4 weeks, Lebanon will be relieved of its desperation.

    Just you hang in there, buddies! The bad-bad-bad nightmare is almost over in Lebanon. And what will remain for the Lebanese at that point would be figuring out how to get out of the remaining political nightmare that has made their economic siege by the Axis of Evil possible.

    Wow, so the first Iranian ship is already here and it arrived without jewish molestation, without fanfare and without stupid photo ops. Hats off for the Shia group who made all this possible. Hats off for their love and devotion to their nation and to their resistance. Hats off for their humility and for not being celebrity freaks like most politicians these days are.

    Your sources are most likely correct, Taxi.

    Yesterday, Sayed Hassan Nasrallah has announced that Hezbollah has already made an agreement with the “Iranian brothers” for the shipping of a third gasoline tanker.

    Nasrallah also welcomed the visit by an official Lebanese government delegation to Syria, Jordan and Egypt, made in to activate import agreements for the supply of electricity and gas.

    Hezbollah’s secretary general welcomed “the Egyptian gas project, Jordanian electricity and everything that can help Lebanon,” noting that what matters to the [Hezbollah] party “is our people and their suffering, independent of political gains.”

    @Fiendly Neighbourhood Terrorist

    {Why does Beirut not simply expel her?}

    Several other posters ask the same sort of question.
    Please guys: we are (UNZ posters/readers) all pretty knowledgeable on how the world actually works. SorosaGangsters of the West recognize no rules, no sovereign rights, no proper diplomatic behaviour/decorum.

    So, the Answer: Lebanon is too small and too weak to stand up to US or any other large country of the West who act like rogues (UK, France, etc, etc).
    Large and powerful countries like Russia and China can play tit-for-tat with US in expelling diplomats. And have. But a country like Lebanon has no choice but to suffer the humiliation and indignity of these “ambassadors” who think and act as Imperial Gauleiters.

    Lebanon has been wrecked by Western gangsters: Israel, US, France, UK…..
    She is in no position to expel anyone.
    What a tragedy: Beirut was aptly called the Paris of Middle East.

    Hi Robin. I apologise for not replying. It wasn’t out of bad manners, but I got really annoyed having my comments on the Beirut harbour likely-bombing by Israel being cut with “More” tags every time, while the propagandists spreading disinformation about Hezbollah were allowed to post pages of bandwidth-heavy tweets. I am not likely to participates in such threads ever again.

    Your question is very important. Nuclear fusion research remains experimental, and its developments are not publicised, since they are industrial edge and strictly protected, both for industrial and military reasons.

    But a new player has entered the field, China. While it started commissioning its fusion reactors only a few years ago, it is now already ahead in tokamak technology.

    Despite being late in joining the race, it has already commissioned its “Artificial Sun” HL-2M tokamak in Dec 2020, which is supposed to be equivalent and collaborate with ITER, a French-based, Western-led fusion installation that has been years in the making, but won’t be delivered until 2025, if ever.
    https://phys.org/news/2020-12-china-nuclear-powered-artificial-sun.html

    Similarly, and only a few months later in May 2021, China undisputedly took the lead by setting a new record. Its Anhui province HT-7U tokamak achieved the global best-ever performance of holding plasma at a temperature of 120 million degrees Celsius, for a duration of 101 seconds, as well as the even hotter temperature of 160 million degrees Celsius for another 20 seconds.
    https://sputniknews.com/asia/202105281083022763-chinese-artificial-sun-experimental-fusion-reactor-sets-world-record-for-superheated-plasma-time/

    Officially, Chinese scientists are saying that it will take them a few other decades to achieve industrial operation of fusion reactors to provide electrical energy to the grid.
    But judging by the mind-boggling technological progress they made during just the past two decades, in space exploration, quantum physics, and other edge technologies where they now surpass the West, this timeline might be overstated. I believe that the coming decade will see significant breakthrough in nuclear fusion, the Holy Graal of the power industry.

    Another perhaps even more important technology where the Chinese are leading is Hydrogen fuel cells. It is real, it is happening, faster than fusion, and it will soon revolutionise the transport industry, with liquefied hydrogen progressively replacing current fossil fuels to power trucks and cars.

    https://energyiceberg.com/china-hydrogen-policy-provincial-summary/#:~:text=Strategies%20of%20Six%20Leading%20Areas%201%20Shandong%3A%20Highest-Level,Scheme.%20…%206%20Tianjin%E2%80%94A%20Small%20Step%20Forward.%20

    Far from the West’s empty promises and disingenuous climate policies, a real Green energy transition to a more sustainable world is happening under our eyes, thanks to China’s unmatched policy clout. China has the will, the means, the decision-makers, the scientists, and is already leading and delivering sustainable energy technologies.

    Smart people, who don’t let themselves fooled by Isreal-inspired easy predatory geopolitical mantra and obsession with natural resources control, have understood the revolution already happening under our eyes. This year, French oil&gas company Total, on of the world’s top 10 majors, has gone through a transformation to invest and cover all fields of sustainable energy technologies, calling itself TotalEnergies instead to reflect its new mission.

    IMHO, it is even possible that China’s leading push ahead in the critical field of transportation industry was one of the main reasons behind the advent of a pandemic that will, in effect, split the world in two, and buy time to the badly-lagging behind US-Israeli complex. Time will soon tell.

    While we are so lucky to have Taxi reporting directly about the Empire’s last tricks in Lebanon, it does not bode well for the Anglo-Zionists that they are left to deploy their subversion “art” and reveal their fracture-deepening schemes in a country which, although symbolically and culturally very important to the Arab world, remains an easy target to prey upon.

    Lebanon has a small population, and its income largely depends on remittances from abroad. A bit like Greece, it is therefore disproportionately vulnerable to the global financial industry. And was disproportionately impacted by the Covid19 pandemic.

    The US-Israel duo torturing Lebanon is like a has-been Mafia boss torturing a 4-year old child; it means that the Empire has run out of enemies it can overpower. The apartheid state of Israel will be gone in 10 years, probably even earlier.

    Israel was the Number 1 force behind the bloody regime change and destruction of Libya; its activities have just caused Algeria to break up any diplomatic relationships with its Zionist-compliant neighbour Morocco; and Tel-Aviv is stirring up a big discord among the African community by trying to impose itself as an “observer” into the African Union Organisation.

    Hi Alfred. I really, humbly, don’t pretend to have the answers to your questions. But the gloom prospect of our planet descending into inferno for lack of resources is far from certain.

    I have zero links to China, professional or otherwise. Every time I accidentally come across articles about their recent technological breakthroughs, I am stunned that the strategic significance of the progress they make is not highlighted in the West.

    There are two major areas of energy consumption in our modern world: transportation and power, with the former being much larger in size. The reliance on Hydrogen fuel cells, a technology different and more convenient than electrical vehicles, will help transition from oil and resolve all transportation issues in a sustainable fashion. But the development of the Hydrogen-fuel can only be delivered by China, whose nascent BRI grid offers the framework for supporting Hydrogen-fuel production and distribution plants.

    Regarding power, gas is cleaner than oil and is not at peak extraction yet. There are massive reserves of it, which just happen not to be under ZOG control: Russia, Iran, Qatar… It will continue supporting the generation of electrical power for 3 to 4 decades, until nuclear plants, hopefully fusion-based, take over.

    Why do you think they are reducing travel, commuting and shutting down economies?

    Because “they” want to stop the current evolution of the energy market, since they know they can’t control it anymore.

    The “green” transition, which the West has been emptily gloating and bragging about for two decades, is now happening against its will and knowledge, because China has reached the required technological edge.

    Like the proverbial pigeon on the chess board, who cannot play the game and decides to mess up the pieces and crap on it instead, and using Covid19 as a pretext, the West chose to revert on globalisation, so as to split the world in two again, in Cold War-style, and recreate an artificial monopoly on a captive market where it will try to buy time and catch up with China’s amazing achievements. But it won’t.

    China has what the West lacks: long-term vision, political commitment to collective well-being, and a strong, inspirational patriotism spread throughout its population.

    We are witnessing an exciting era, that will retrospectively be looked at as a new civilizational dawn, and a major Renaissance for humankind. And it will happen fast.

    Hezbollah is not the first player in the area to make the accusation of the US setting up a ratline via helicopter flights to Afghanistan for ISIS: Russia and Iran, which borders Afghanistan, have been for some time.

    As Hadi Nasrallah noted, Syra and Iraq have said more or less the same, with Syrian state media SANA saying in 2017 reporting that “US helicopters transported between 40 and 75 ISIS militants from Hasakah, North Syria to an ‘unknown area.’”

    Salam Sister,

    Well said, the “More” tag is insult to the truth tellers. Another, biggest insult to the Shia is that I am not allowed to write the TRUTH about Islam. Mostly, my post used to go in the dust bin and some which were allowed, they almost had the “More” tag. And, the rest is swept under the carpet that these are trying time, and “we” Muslims should band together and be united. This is the BS the Shai hear all the times, in all ages, while the body of the Prophet was still warn, when the forces of Shaytan hijacked Islam. When good time come, the persecution and murders of Shia became common practice. We are not allowed to tell our side of history which gets silenced under the banner of “Sectarianism” or it is “History and Politics” and doesn’t matter in these days and ages. The Biggest BS.

    On the demise of the Prophet (saws) all his Sunnah was burned by the first three Caliph, under the pretense that we need only “Book of Allah”, meaning the Quran is sufficient for Muslims. The third Caliph complied the Quran in old Arabic, not the Classical Quranic Arabic and chapters were not complied in the chronological order. Even the verses within the chapters are not in chronological order, or moved to different chapters. Then he burned rest of the other copies of Quran collected by others. The Quran was put in Classical Quranic Arabic, eighty years later after the demise of the Prophet.

    From 5th Caliph onward, meaning the Empire of Omayyad, literally factories were created to recreate the Sunnah. After the demise of the Prophet, almost two hundreds years later these created Sunnah was complied by six authors under, “Six Authenticated Books”. Each Book (author) had voluminous books.

    In echo and support to this very important article by Taxi, here is the plan laid out by the Anglo-Zionists for Lebanon, described by Palestinian analyst Rasim Obeidat.

    Sayed Nasrallah read the reality and the equations well. He practices a policy of restraint, but is fully aware of the nature and size of the economic blockade project which is being managed against Lebanon, with the participation of foreign countries and internal forces, a project aimed at the Resistance, primarily Hezbollah and its nurturing environment.

    The project was detailed by Pompeo to France’s Emmanuel Macron in its five stages: first a political vacuum led by Saad Hariri. Second, economic and monetary collapses, managed by Riad Salameh, director of the Central Bank of Lebanon. Third, a security chaos leading to a mini-civil war, orchestrated by Geagea and al-Gemayel, that will trigger an external intervention. Fourth, the foreign intervention puts Lebanon under international mandate, and drags Hezbollah to participate in the civil war…

    Fifth, Israel then attacks Hezbollah militarily with direct American and French support and direct coverage from the failed regimes of the West’s Arab client states.

    Sayed Nasrallah is well aware of this plan, as he said in the speech of the 10th of Ashura that the headquarters of the U.S. Embassy are not used to carry out diplomatic work, but are part of the economic and media war to incite civil war in Lebanon.

    Hi Mike. Yes, Hydrogen fuel cells are already a very big deal. They are now out of the labs and already in commercial development. It won’t be a few years until we see in the streets trucks and cars running on Hydrogen.

    The bigger challenge is not the cells, but actually producing and distributing the hydrogen so it becomes widely available for re-fuelling, as would be petrol in petrol stations.

    Building Hydrogen-fuel production and distribution networks is incomparably more difficult to achieve than, for instance, providing charging points for the alternative non-polluting electric cars technology.

    It is a challenge that I think only China can raise to. First because it really is ahead in fuel cell technology. Second because building its BRI land routes would be the natural framework for creating a hydrogen production and distribution network running alongside. Third because it requires an immense level of long-term planning and investment, that only a superior nation can deliver, something that is beyond comprehension for the Wall Street speculation junkies.

The indigenous Christians – Armenians, Assyrians, Pontic Greeks – near 100% of the peoples there, were wiped out. Now Asia Minor is close to 99% Muslim.

    To be fair, most Muslims* mean no harm. But a small, dedicated minority of Islamists will rile up the crowds and with no countervailing force to check them, they will eventually ethnically cleanse the “others”.

    Does that mean the proposed expenditure of billions for nation-wide electric vehicle charging stations will be another Afghanistan-like \$\$\$ boondoggle?

    Hi S2C. I guess you are talking about the US. Yes, it is fair using the word “boondoggle” if the pretence is that a significant fraction of the country’s vehicles (>15%) could go electric.

    That would for starters require to considerably increase the electrical grid’s instantaneous production and transport capacity, from which the vehicles’ charging power has to be drawn. Where would the clean electricity come from? The USA has not invested in any such infrastructure, not even in nuclear power plants, which are arguably clean but take typically a minimum of 10 years to build and commission. The collapse of the Texas grid this winter showed that parts of the US grid are not even resilient enough to face traditional energy consumption.

    Second, it is impossible to reduce an electrical vehicle (EV) charging time below a certain duration, due to inherent limitations of the chemical process. This constraint utimately makes EV’s unsuitable for commercial transportation, which is one main reason behind China’s R&D effort in hydrogen fuel cells.

    Thirdly, once hydrogen fuel cells vehicles become commercial, they will naturally replace EV’s. Filling in a car tank with hydrogen is as fast as filling it with petrol, and that will make EV’s considerably less attractive.

    Even given its strategic reliance on Hydrogen fuel cells development, China is leader in EV’s at the moment. Far from Tesla’s expensive luxury cars which change nothing to the overall “carbon footprint” issue, Chinese manufacturers have developed cheap and unpretentious small EV’s, which have at least the benefit of immediately improving urban pollution levels. Their usage may survive in city condition, where short journeys are not penalised by long charging time.

    But you can see the mentality in Ilham Omar.

    An ingrate radical Muslim who was given shelter in (Christian) US…

    To be fair, most Muslims* mean no harm. But a small, dedicated minority of Islamists will rile up the crowds and with no countervailing force to check them, they will eventually ethnically cleanse the “others”.

    I think you’re seriously misreading the situation…

    Most people, Muslims included, tend to be fairly conformist, and in modern times the source of ultimate authority has increasingly become the electronic media, now including social media, which function as near Gods. People generally do or act as the Media tells them is proper, though there are sometimes rival Media, and also small groups that follow fringe Media.

    A few generations ago, the Media told people to be “good, patriotic Americans” and I have no doubt that Omar and her cohort would have been extremely likely to follow those directives. But these days, the Media tells them to denounce traditional white Gentile America, and being good and obedient conformists, that’s exactly what they do.

    Consider that Omar is an immigrant Muslim, and she and her circle can’t be very happy about America’s extreme pro-Israel policy. The main reason anyone’s heard of her is that she once made a mild joke on Twitter about the strength of the Israel Lobby. But Divine Vengeance immediately smote her with a lightning bolt, and she learned never, ever to do that sort of thing again.

    Similarly, she and her immigrant Muslim friends also can’t be very happy about all the LGBTQXYZ lunacy, but they’re too cowardly to dare say anything. So they confine their denunciations to “correct” targets like the deadly white Christian menace to American society. And I really doubt their being Muslim has anything to do with it, except making them useful public “tokens.” I’m sure Stalin had lots of pet Muslims who were willing to revile the Trotskyites in the name of Islam.

    It’s perfectly fair to denounce them as cowardly conformists, but I think pretty much all the politicians fall into that category, and the exceptions usually soon become ex-politicians.

    Dear Fran,

    Be very discreet and don’t forward the links to the anti semites.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theories_of_Pashtun_origin

    There is a tradition among the Pashtuns of being descended from the exiled lost tribes of Israel.[31] This tradition was referenced in 19th-century Western scholarship and was also incorporated in the “Lost Tribes” literature popular at the time (notably George Moore’s The Lost Tribes of 1861). Recently (2000s), interest in the topic has been revived by Jerusalem anthropologist Shalva Weil, who was quoted in the popular press to the effect that “Taliban may be descended from Jews”.[32]

    The traditions surrounding the Pashtuns being remote descendants of the “Lost Tribes of Israel” is to be distinguished from the historical presence of the Jewish community in eastern Afghanistan which flourished from about the 7th century to the early 20th century, but has essentially disappeared due to its emigration to Israel since the 1950s.

    Mughal-era historiography
    Main article: Nimat Allah al-Harawi
    According to the Encyclopaedia of Islam, the theory of Pashtun descent from Israelites is traced to Maghzan-e-Afghani, a history compiled for Khan-e-Jehan Lodhi in the reign of Mughal Emperor Jehangir in the 16th century.

    In his universal history Mirat-ul-Alam – The Mirror of the World – Bukhtawar Khan describes the journeys of the Pashtuns from the Holy Land to Ghor, Ghazni, and Kabul. Similarly, Rahmat bin Shah Alam, in his Khulasat-ul-Ansab and Fareed-ud-Din Ahmad in Risala-i-Ansab-i-Afghana provide the history of the Afghans and deal with their genealogies.

    Two of the most famous historical works on the subject are Tarikh-i-Afghana – History of the Afghans – by Nimat Allah al-Harawi, which was translated by Bernard Dorn in 1829, and Tarikh-i-Hafiz Rahmatkhani, by Muhammad Zadeek which he wrote in 1770. “Tawarikh-e-Hafiz Rehmat khani”was later translated and provided with footnotes by Khan Roshan khan. These books deal with the early history of the Pashtuns, their origin and wanderings in general. They particularly discuss the Yusefzai (literally “sons of Joseph”) and their occupation of Kabul, Bajoor, Swat, Peshawar and some of Charsadda (District of Peshawar).

    In his Travels into Bokhara, which he published in 1835, Sir Alexander Burnes wrote: “The Afghans call themselves Bani Israel, or the children of Israel, but consider the term Yahoodi, or Jew, to be one of reproach. They say that

    The Taliban are Jewish LOL.

    […Beirut was known as the Paris of the Middle East. And Lebanon was the most civilized nation in the Middle East.
    After 70 years, why can’t the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon settle down as the Palestinians and descendants have settled down in other countries?]

    You the criminal zionists, why didn’t you settle down in Britain, Russia, Netherlands, Ukraine and other places where you ruled through your superiors, the grand thieves, Rothschild and Sassoon family? Didn’t’ you have enough profit from your ‘opium trade’? “diamond trade’, “oil trade”, “art trade” to survive? You were in these countries for centuries using their resources.
    Why should Palestinians whose land has been stolen by you and people like you should settle down in other countries when you have occupied their land. Why don’t you get lost? You have enough ‘jewish states’ around the world, in US, Canada,Europe, Eastern Europe, to live in and let Palestine be liberated. If you don’t, then they will get their land back soon, and that time is not far away.

    Your criminal tribe is waging wars for the past few centuries destroying communities and countries like in WWI during Ottoman empire which is repeated today. Herzl bribed Abdulhamid to let him buy a piece of land in Palestine where he refused, because he was not corrupt like your superiors, instead, the tribe topple him using the British empire controled by Roschield family through propaganda, chaos and wars to steal Palestine. Today, the criminal tribe is doing the same to expand and construct FAKE states using their pawns and terrorists like the terrorist kurd to create FAkE allies. This plan must be destroyed at any cost.

    Lebanon has been targeted because of zionist expansionist policy to steal the LITANY River for their survival at other people’s cost, but Lebanon is resisting until their enemy is dead for good to bring peace on earth.

    Other countries like Iran is targeted by the same criminal tribe for over forty years, many assassinations, terrorism, Jewish mafia trademark, sanctions against innocent people to starve to give up so they can steal their lands and resources constructing FAKE states through partition to make the country smaller because Iran’s size has been targeted by the criminal Tribe. Example, Sudan was the biggest country in Africa with oil in the south, then the Israel/US targeted Sudan where member of the criminal Tribe staged propaganda, manufacturing fake ‘minorities’ to create chaos and war to break up the country to create ‘south sudan’ as FAKE ally, where is good only for FAKE Israeli businessmen.

    They want to do the same in Iran where the Zionist in occupied Palestine have recently said in PUBLIC that wanting to partition Iran to create FAKE small entities as ‘state’ like their own, easier to rule and steal their resources. This is zionist policy according to Oded Yinon where everyone should be aware of and help to destroy the plan. Lebanon and Iran are obstacles to zionist expansionist policy, thus they have been targeted.

    To make Lebanon as beautiful as ‘pairs’ then the criminal tribe must be destroyed because the ‘beautiful Paris’ itself is a dying city as a result of Tribe and its members activities, like fake philosopher Bernard Henri Levy, BHL, a warmonger, terrorist who is involved in every single Partition on behalf of Israel including Sudan, Libya, Iraq, Syria, Iran and now in Afghanistan.
    People of the world are waking up. Today, even the slow learning Iranians know who is the criminal BHL and good for them because in order to destroy your enemy you must know them and be informed about their intention.

    Look at Iraq, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Lebanon, Palestine, these countries have been affected by the zionist expansionist policy.

    Lebanon is not the only city that the tribe and its extension have starved to form Millions of people have been killed by the zionist expansionist policy and many beautiful countries have been reduced to ashes and many cities more beautiful than Paris have brought down because of Oded Yinon

    people should be united against this policy and destroy those who are forcing Oded Yinon to bring peace on earth.

    Even though my article applauds the wily Hezbollah for circumventing the jewy Empire’s conspiracies and big boots, I would just like to remind readers that the Lebanese people themselves remain extremely vulnerable to Empire’s evil intentions. The enemy of Lebanon still holds several injurious cards it can inflict on the helpless Lebanese collective. These cards are political and connected to the upcoming local elections, as well as to the presidential elections that will take place in about a year’s time.

    When the Beirut Port explosion happened, the pro-Hezb government of Hassan Diab resigned, and Lebanon has not had a government since, all thanks to Dorothy instructing her ‘people’ in government not to allow for this to occur. And she did the same with all positive and feasible, financial ‘rescue’ proposals put forth by patriotic politicians in the interim. She’s been sinking everything political that would get the Lebanon out of its financial crisis, as well as its political one. And as this circus continues, and it will, the country falls further and further into institutional and social fragmentation. This makes the ‘security’ situation extremely volatile and dangerous. Dorothy still hopes for a sectarian war through this ‘political disintegration’ route. It’s the only one left, and its where the Hezb has the least power – having only two appointed ministers. Sure, the Hezb has many ministerial allies and they altogether form a tough little ring, but their task on hand is humongous, and the malevolence of the enemy remains engorged and insatiable.

    Dorothy is also still working against the pro-Hezb, Maronite President Aoun, with the policy of crippling his positive programs for the Lebanon in his last year of office: using saudi/emirati/US sponsored medias in Lebanon to paint him and his Aounist party as absolute failures, so as to drive traditional Aounist voters away from President Aoun’s party and towards Hezb enemy Samir Gaegae, who has already publicly announced his presidential ambitions. Mindful here too that the Lebanese Deep state, which is blindly pro US, is supporting Gaegae.

    Here, I would bring your attention to the numerous times that so-called Deep States around the world ‘fixed’ their elections through bribes of politicians and institutions, through the ‘purchase’ of individual and voter blocks, as well as other illegal and anti-democratic methods. In the case of Lebanon’s next presidential elections, and with the collapse of the local currency already a reality, the ‘purchasing’ of votes for the next Lebanese election will be the cheapest the world has ever known. Before the financial crisis, the dollar gave you 1.500 Lebanese Liras, and now, the dollar is worth 19.100 Lebanese Liras. Buying each vote for a hundred bucks would put almost two million Liras in the pockets of the very needy voter. Get my drift? See how cheap-cheap it would be to ‘fix’ Lebanon’s next election?

    The Lebanon battle still rages, despite the Iranian ships. These ships will provide relief, for sure, but the Lebanon needs a political ‘ship’ to rescue it as well. A political ship that Dorothy is determined to sink out at sea.

    The big danger for Lebanon now is for a serious security incident to occur (a false flag/a-la Rafiq Hariri assassination) that would spin the country into the direction of a civil war. Sectarian-flavored setups have already been attempted this summer, with the Khaldeh massacre and the Shwayah incident. Fortunately, these manufactured, emotive events were quickly dampened by both the Lebanese army and the Hezb. The ongoing political paralysis in Lebanon enables, and can easily trigger, more of these worrisome incidents. The Lebanese army, the Lebanese Internal Security apparatus, the Hezbollah and the Christian Aounist party are all feverishly working to counter this. They have a long year ahead of them that will be full of challenging security traps to overcome; and many political, tightrope acrobatics to perform as well. Dorothy would like for a sectarian war to break out in this period, so as to busy the Hezb internally, while the Axis of Evil combined executes its death warrant on the nation of Lebanon, knowing very well that such a thing would drag the middle east into a regional war: a war between the Hezb and israel that would instantly widen into a war between the Axis of Evil and the Axis of Resistance nations. Considering that Hezbollah’s sophisticated weapons pointing at tel aviv continue, unstoppable, to increase in number and in hi-tech advancement, the logic of the israeli enemy here is: war is inevitable – strike today because tomorrow we are weaker.

    No, America and israel are not finished with the Lebanon just because the Iranian ships are coming to Lebanon’s aid. No, it ain’t over yet by any means.

    Last time I was at the America embassy in Beirut (renewing my passport) was back in May of 2021. I can tell you that even though the place is nice and big, it was practically empty of American citizens, yet, full of security people – and I mean FULL of security people. Two unpleasant and concerning sights there troubled me. The first one was seeing three flags flying together at the embassy’s compound: the US flag, next to the Lebanese flag, next to the fucking rainbow flag! This indeed informed me that I was on ‘woke’ land, with ‘woke’ projects designed for Lebanon. The second concern was that when I first arrived at the embassy road, I took a wrong turn and ended up at the new ’embassy extension’ that’s currently being built. Man, it is huge-huge-huge and brought to mind Iraq’s Green Zone. Plus, I was greeted at the gates of this new extension by some seriously beefy, Lebanese armed guards: tattooed, pierced, long-haired and bandana-wearing. They looked like a cross between Hell’s Angel bikers and some dodgy militia out in some boondocks. They looked angry and defensive in posture that I was suddenly at the dusty gate, but soon as they heard my accent, they relaxed their AK-47s and redirected me to the correct turn with the smallest of smiles. This told me that the US has no fucking plan whatsoever to leave the Lebanon alone. In fact, it looked like they intend to stay there forever. Driving back home, I tried to figure out why the embassy would need this giant building extension when the current space is really more than sufficient to serve US expats in the Lebanon. Billions of dollars are being spent on this new extension – billions! It is massive-massive and dominates the whole hill it sits upon. ‘Poor Lebanon’, I thought to myself, ‘how the fuck are they ever going to get rid of this expanding menace’? The Lebanese have already evicted US troops out of the Lebanon back during the Reagan days – a violent expulsion back in 1983 that caused the death of some 307 marines.

    I guess the US is asking for another mass funeral. The Hezbollah is not the only resistance group in the Lebanon. There are plenty of those around (approx 2 dozen+), and they are all armed and on the same page.

    One thing is for sure: a most dangerous and hectic year is ahead for the Lebanon. Anything can happen. ANYTHING. Including a miscalculation by tel aviv that will find it in smoking ruin.

    This is a certainty, should the Axis of Evil push the Lebanon into a sectarian war. Push too many resistance buttons.

    Of course, Lebanon too will be in ruins. The only difference is that once the war dust has settled, Lebanese refugees will return to rebuilt their country, as they have always done in the past, while the jewish-colonialist refugees will not be returning to a newly liberated Palestine for at least the next hundred years.

    In the end, Medusa’s head will be buried in a jewish cemetery, and with it, the satanic Yinon Plan.

    But at what cost? Well, this, dear reader, is the price of true freedom.

    3000 words like the above and very few actual facts. I am not saying that Shea is a good ambassador, but you could have given more specific examples for those of us who are not familiar with Lebanon.

    What facts you need! Both Iran and Lebanon are under embargo. They both are not allowed to trade. Supposedly, Iran economy is tanked due to sanctions imposed against her. Iran is short of money. But we see Iran is supplying needed fuel and food to Lebanon, even being under embargo and sanctions. Where does Iran get all this money? Think Cryptocurrencies.

    Shaytan, meaning The Tribe took over Islam while the body of the Prophet (saws) was still warm and not buried yet. Islam was infested with The Tribe as Muslims. The second Caliph Omar main adviser was a Jew converted to Islam. He made sure Omar to allow the Jews to come back to Palestine, which were kicked out by the Byzantine Empire. The Christian King in the early days of Islam, gave protection to Muslims (mostly his families – Banu Hashim), and the first thing Muslims did was to put a knife in the back of Christians. Then, they saved The Tribe from Spanish Inquisition.

    The Dönme (Tribe) infiltrated Turkey as Muslims. Kamâl Atatürk started the destruction of Islam, like the Tribe did to Christianity. His mantle was passed to Shah of Iran. Muslims countries, including Afghanistan forgot their hijab and were wearing miniskirts, trying to out do each other. Who protected Islam in those trying times? It was none other than KSA. Before Shia accuse KSA hating Imam Ali (as), they should look at the flag of KSA. It has the sword on it called, Zulfiqar which was given to Imam Ali by the Prophet. Then the mantle was passed to Sayyid Khomeini who was installed by USA.

    Christians and Muslims had enough, so they decided to be in cahoots to destroy The Tribe. This is the very first time the Christians and Muslims are cooperating with each other, rather than being mortal enemies of each other on the bidding of The Tribe.

    Muslims are causing murder and mayhem not Jews and they are anything but conformist.

    But why would any American political analyst care so much about hypothetical “murder and mayhem” allegedly caused by Muslims in foreign lands that do not affect Americans?

    Conversely, why would such analysts not care about major and multi-faceted attacks onto their own people, such as the dustification of 3000 innocent Americans at the WTC, in their own country, during peace time, by a foreign power, Israel?

    9/11 was an unprecedented crime against humanity, the third time in History, after Hiroshima and Nagasaki, where nuclear weapons where used for large-scale human extermination.

    Israel masterminded, planned and executed the WTC nuclear demolition, with thousands of Americans deliberately trapped inside.

    The 9/11 nuclear Holocaust was conducted deliberately to cause maximum civilian casualty: on the morning of 9/11, at 06:47, over 2 hours before the attacks*, the operatives working for Larry Silverstein purposely disabled the master alarm system in WTC7 by setting it to “maintenance” mode, in order to ensure that no alarm would be carried over to the North and South Tower when an embedded demolition system would be triggered 3 hours later.

    By doing so, they ensured that the Towers would not be evacuated and that a maximum number of occupants would die a gruesome death.

    *This is a fact, and it is mentioned in the official 9/11 NIST report.

    https://www.ae911truth.org/news/479-security-alerts-disabled-fire-alarms-and-unused-elevators-suspicious-events-at-the-world-trade-center-before-9-11

    The 9/11 nuclear attack was carried out by Israel, and made to maximise the number of American civilian victims.

    The hapless American institutions were double-crossed, mystified by the Israeli stage-managing of the false flag, and led to make erroneous decisions, which then were leveraged by the Israelis to trigger the nuclear demolition of two sky-scrapers full of people. Now why would any American analyst not care about such crime, Taubman?

    Earlier, Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah had announced that a ship loaded with fuel would depart from Iran for Lebanon, and confirmed that two more ships would follow.

    Nasrallah said at the time that the Iranian ship would “from the first moment it sails be considered by Hezbollah as Lebanese territory”, meaning that any sea attack on the oil tanker will be considered an act of war against Lebanon.

    When the Beirut Port explosion happened, the pro-Hezb government of Hassan Diab resigned

    Thanks for your most important and insightful articles, Taxi. I believe that you are pointing the UR readers’ attention to the most likely point of hot conflict currently being planned by the Israeli-NATO imperialist coalition.

    To add to your point, the Beirut “explosion” most likely was not an accident, but an attack and the first stage in the aggression process currently being managed by Ambassador Shea.

    Others have said so, Thierry Meyssan with his mention of “a new type of weapon“, and even President Trump in his first un-vetted speech right after the 5 Aug 2020 tragedy.

    The Beirut main “explosion” manifested as a coherent shockwave, i.e. as a pressure blast with a single time origin and a single geographical origin. There is not a chance in millions that thousands of ammonium nitrate kegs, scattered over a large warehouse, would have detonated in such a perfectly choreographed fashion, both chronologically and positionally.

    The explosion could not have been accidental, and must have been caused by “a weapon of some sort“, to paraphrase Donald Trump.

    This weapon was probably a new type of fusion nuclear weapons, that have been developed since 2006 under Israeli control. They came about after a random research breakthrough was made in plasma physics, that unexpectedly achieved fusion-level temperatures. This breakthrough opened the way to undetectable fusion nuclear weapons, ones that leave (almost) no signature radioactive fallout.

    The Beirut “explosion” most probably was an Israeli terror attack, about which President Macron had been briefed in advance and for which he promptly played the Zi0-NATO postman.

    Thanks, Iris. Nasrallah said in one of his recent speeches that the US via its embassy in Beirut has been “actively working to destroy Lebanon through sectarian war since 2005.” This is the year Rafiq Hariri was assassinate and Nasrallah was alluding to it as the opening act of the US’s dark theatrics for Lebanon. The size of that explosion was shockingly large and powerful: 1,000 kilograms of TNT was akin to a mini ‘shock and awe’ op inflicted. The psychological shockwaves of the bomb that killed Hariri still reverberate in Lebanon’s body politic today. In this context of the year 2005, one could say that all US-israel conspiracies against Lebanon for the past 16 years have failed. That’s a pretty good record in favor of the Lebanon and its protector, Hezbollah. Let’s just hope this trend continues to the finish line.

    At first meeting, Biden pledges to Bennett that Iran will ‘never’ get nukes. Which we all know it is BS as Iran is not developing nukes. Bennett came empty handed and in the end Bennett thanked Biden. Biden’s response is never to be forgotten.

    So, Mr. President, today you and I — and you’ve been so generous with your time in these difficult days — you and I are going to write yet another chapter in the beautiful story of the friendship between our two nations, the United States of America, and the Jewish and democratic state of Israel. Both of us who seek to do good and need to be strong, both of us who are a lighthouse in a very, very stormy world. Thank you, Mr. President, I look forward to working with you now and for many years forward. Thank you.

    Biden: Well, thank you. And you give me credit, much of which should go to Barack Obama for making sure that we committed to the qualitative edge you would have relative to your friends in the region. So he’s the one who deserves the credit.

    The psychological shockwaves of the bomb that killed Hariri still reverberate in Lebanon’s body politic today.

    This was indeed one of the vilest acts ever, profoundly targeting the very fabric of the Lebanese nation.

    The Hariri assassination was investigated and much light provided by political analyst Omran Adham, in his 2014 book “American hypocrisy” ( النفاق الأميركي).

    https://www.neelwafurat.com/itempage.aspx?id=lbb231328-210151&search=books

    Adham got a lot of insider information from very well-informed sources, such as former intelligence operative John Perkins (Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (2004)).

    Rafiq Hariri was killed by a small-scale missile launched from the sea, most likely from an Israeli frigate or submarine, toward his motorcade. The missile’s head was coated in enriched uranium for higher destructive capability. This type of missile was owned only by the United States, Germany and Israel.

    The official in charge of Hariri motorcade’s security knew very well the “zero hour.” He thus refrained from accompanying Hariri while he was preparing to move from the House of Representatives to his home in Qureitam, but ordered the convoy to use the fatal sea route on the way back.

    Perkins said that U.S. and Israeli satellites filmed the assassination, as well as an Israeli helicopter that was in the air along the Lebanese coast and was monitoring the operation.

    Hariri’s car was equipped with advanced technical monitoring devices that no country , except the United States and Israel, could disable. This hacking mission was assigned to the Israeli ship, which was stationed at the limits of Lebanese territorial waters, supported from the air by an American AWACS aircraft and an Israeli helicopter. (P. 81)

    The book reported that then-President Bush, on advice of his father Bush Sr, refused to authorise the assassination., but that Israel wanted Hariri dead because he stood in the way of its economic and political plans alike, and that he was a strong Arab figure with an influential presence at the regional and international levels.

    In particular, after the discovery of the offshore Leviathan gas field, an Israeli security committee warned that Hariri could forcefully influence the process of demarcating sea borders between Cyprus and Lebanon, hence putting Israel in face of a “fait accompli” with regard to its share of offshore oil and gas.

    The Israelis considered several options for the assassination, and Ariel Sharon made the decision to murder Hariri in Beirut, as it would kill two birds with one stone and implicate Israel’s arch-enemy the Hezbollah.

    Sharon then sent Condoleezza Rice as his ambassador, who “convinced” the White House to let the Israelis execute their assassination plan.

    The US administration later rejected the investigation of Hariri’s assassination by a Lebanese commission of inquiry. In order to fabricate the charges against Hezbollah, and to cover up Germany’s probable involvement in the supply of the murder weapon, German investigator Detlev Mehlis was chosen to chair an international commission of inquiry approved by UN Secretary-General. It tried for over a decade to implicate Hezbollah and avoided all this time to look to the real culprits.

    I don’t think the same. I believe these countries are nothing but colonies where their oil wealth has been taken to fund the zionist/imperialist wars against the enemy of the day, Muslims.

    What UAE with a population under 1M can do to anyone? The war in Yemen is American war not Saudis. Yemen war is part of the package for geopolitical gain. If they want to stop the war, US will stop sending arms and receiving billions of dollars for it. The west lives on WMD. This is part of their livelihood.

    The zionists and US have these countries under control to fund their terrorist activities and provide foot soldiers for their wars. These countries are victims themselves, because they don’t have many options at this moment.
    Look what is happening to Tunisia. They are after Tunisia offering to improve its economy if Tunisia bend over and normalize relations with Israel. Do you know what had happened to Sudan? They forced Sudan, where at one time was the biggest African country, to bend over recognizing Israel, in return promising billions of dollars to improve its economy where have not delivered yet and Sudan cannot do much.

    This is the end result of Arab leaders who think they cannot be united against the evil empire. Sudan resisted first, but the zionist were extremely active spreading lies and constructing fake ‘minorities’ based on ethnic and religious divide, pushing civil war where destroyed the country and end up in partitioned Sudan. The jewish neocons carried the same policy in Iraq, Libya and Syria and now wants to repeat in Iran where will take it into their GRAVES.

    Disregarding what is moral or honourable, wouldn’t the people of Lebanon be much better off if people like Nasrallah would be friends with Israel, the US and so on? You might not like this fact, but it is almost undeniable.

    And if your “morality” benefits no one and makes everyone worse off, then what really is your “morality”?

    My sister is frequently wrong about small factual things, like everyone is, but gets very upset if you don’t validate her. My “honour” might tell me to refuse to do so, but Christmas is so much better for everyone if I relent. I, therefore, choose to relent because my sense of pride is worth less than having a genial Christmas to me.

    I made a provocative observation, but, if you drop all of your story, morality and other preconceptions, you can see that it is an astonishing one and probably very useful if you want the living standards of people to increase.

    Being friends with Iran, like Venezuela, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen and even Libya may be the best correlate for a drop in living standards of your country last decade. Interestingly, this is not true for actually being Iran.

    You can make up any explanation for this you want, but I would first just reflect on this fact and see how you feel. It is better than simply trying to absorb this into your preconstructed ideology, especially since that ideology blinded you to this remarkable fact.

    Thank you for your insightful, well researched and well written article. You have pretty much revealed the purpose and the goals of the resistance nations against the imperialists illegal activities in the ME. Obviously, Iran is playing a major role in the Resistance efforts be it political, negotiations and ultimately military power, whichever the case may be and as needed. This group of nations have been expanding their activities and now they have become a force to reckon with in the region. The Resistance nations will definitely expand further as the other subservient nations in the region do realize that their interests must not be tied to west and their Lackeys. They do support one another very well and assist one another as requested without infringing on each nation’s sovereignty.

    Nope, I didn’t say the Sunnis are Jews. The article is about the Elephant in the room, The Greater Israel.

    What is Sunni and what is Shia? A Sunni is a Muslim who believes in the Sunnah of the Prophet (saws). Guess what all Muslims are Sunni. A Shia is a follower, in the Quran it says, Abraham was a Shia of Noah. Again, all Muslims are followers. The most dominant and violent group was of Imam Hassan Al-Ash’ari (874 AD–936 AD). After, they violently slaughtered all other groups, Imam Al-Ash’ari named his group Sunni and called themselves as Fundamentalist (Traditionalist). He then closed all education door on Islam, and from thereon the Muslims went downhill. This violent tendency till today still exist in Sunni, in the form of Wahhabism, Taliban 1.0, Caliph Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi and so forth.

    Mecca was a money minting city. It was controlled by the Quresh Tribe, the dominant tribe was Banu Omayyad whole leader was Abu Sufyan, and then Banu Hashim (Prophet’s tribe), who leader was Abu Talib (as), the father of Imam (as) and few smaller tribes. Prophet Mohammad was the nephew of Abu Talib, who raised him from early age, and the Prophet raised Imam Ali from childhood. The Prophet upset the apple’s cart (money minting city) and the dominance of Abu Sufyan, who had become the arch enemy of the Prophet. Prophet sent all the children of Abu Talib (excluding Imam Ali) and other family members under the protection given by the Christian King.

    The Prophet spend 52+ life in Mecca, and the last three years under house arrest with his family and Imam Ali and almost they were starved to death. When Abu Talib and the only wife of the Prophet for 27 years, Bibi Khadijah died, he slipped out to Medina, leaving Imam Ali and Bibi Fatima (as) behind. By now Banu Hashim tribe didn’t exist and they lost all their properties. Medina had three strong Jewish tribes, two of them highlanders and the Prophet live at the bottom of the mountain with his small followers. And, another very rich Jewish Banu Nader tribe live in the outskrits of Medina.

    ‘I think it is obvious…’

    It’s also obvious that these countries find themselves targets of the US-Israel first and turn to Iran second, rather than the reverse. Lebanon was first invaded by Israel forty years ago, while Syria first found herself being reduced to a state of anarchy — and only then turned to Iran for assistance.

    It’s really a matter of all those who are singled out by the US-Israel finding themselves in the same boat — not of what little help Iran can offer having any pernicious effect. It’s a victims’ club.

He passed an order preventing her from making any public statement, as well as forbidding any local or foreign media outlet working in Lebanon from conducting interviews with her or they will face a \$200,000 fine.[7][8] However, the decision wasen’t implemented, and Mazeh was called to appear before the Judicial Inspection Board.

    This weapon was probably a new type of fusion nuclear weapons, that have been developed since 2006 under Israeli control.

    A fusion nuke, eh? Nope.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ammonium_nitrate_disasters
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oppau_explosion#Scale_of_the_explosion

    Two explosions, half a second apart, occurred at 7:32 am on September 21, 1921, at Silo 110 of the plant, forming a crater 90 by 125 m (300 by 410 ft) wide and 19 m (62 ft) deep.[4] In these explosions 10% of the 4,500 tonnes of fertilizer stored in the silo detonated.[4][6] The explosions were heard as two loud bangs in north-eastern France and in Munich, more than 300 km away, and are estimated to have contained an energy of 1–2 kilotonnes TNT equivalent.

    The pressure wave caused great damage in Mannheim, located just across the Rhine, ripped roofs off up to 25 km away, and destroyed windows farther away, including all the medieval stained-glass windows of Worms cathedral, 15 km (9.3 mi) to the north. In Heidelberg (30 km (19 mi) from Oppau), traffic was stopped by the mass of broken glass on the streets, a tram was derailed, and some roofs were destroyed.[clarification needed]

    Five hundred bodies were recovered within the first 48 hours,[8] with the final death toll recorded being in excess of 560 people.[4]

    Was Israel involved? I suspect so. “Fusion nuclear weapons”? NO.

    Thanks AKAHorance and RobinG. Actually, the information in my article(s) are all based on facts and not whimsy.

    Two things worth mentioning here. One: some news and statements that I am privy to are only available in Arabic. Two: with regard Dorothy’s quotes, I have heard her incitements plenty of times on Lebanese TV, and in English, but when I went to search them out in English so as to include one or two of them in the article, I literally found none of her statements on Hezbollah on English search-engines. Weird, huh? Or maybe not. But, suffice it to say that if Dorothy’s incitements to civil war did not exist in abundance, would a judge have taken umbrage with her and banned her words from Lebanese media? Surely he would have heard plenty, to the point of absolute outrage, for him to issue such a damning decree against her malevolence and interference in internal Lebanese affairs.

    I would also like to point out here that journalism is not my profession, and I have no desire to become a journalist, or to behave like one whatsoever. I know that the norm in journalism is to provide evidence, links etc, and I used to do plenty of that in the past, till it got tedious and boring for me and I decided to skip this part of article work. I actually see great benefit in not including links etc: this being that if discerning readers are concerned about a piece of information I provide, it benefits them personally and greatly to do their own research into the matter. I am a creative writer who pens the occasional article for my personal blog (platosguns.com), and I deliberately refuse to adhere to boring and strict journalistic rules. Make of this what you will, but there you honestly have it.

    I’ll add here also that for instance, when it is common knowledge in Lebanon that Riyadh Salame, head of Lebanon’s national bank, is himself behind the ‘disappeared’ billions of dollars from Lebanon, Dorothy on numerous occasions went on Lebanese TV to declare it was Hezbollah who illegally shifted this money out of the country, and thus created the economic crisis that is causing the starvation of people. She continues to peddle this lie in public – a lie that she provides zero evidence for. And just as bad, when a new judge was assigned the Beirut Port explosion file (after the first one was removed for prejudice), she went on Lebanese TV and stupidly spilled the beans when she said that she has “met with Judge Tarek Bitar and had a long and friendly conversation with him.” What business is it of Dorothy’s to arrange for such an undiplomatic meeting, except to bring him into her anti-Hezbollah fold? Dodge Town has never known such a dodgy character, wouldn’t you say?

    While there is still much ambiguity about the US promise to import gas from Egypt to Lebanon, according to informed sources, Iranian fuel ships are the only hope for the Lebanese to escape the crisis. Mashreghnews reports.

    There has been no change in the scene of people lining up in front of gas stations, and promises made by the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Finance, the Central Bank and oil companies to resolve the fuel crisis have been postponed for political reasons.

    Informed sources also report that due to technical reasons, Iraqi oil is expected to enter Lebanon with a delay, and also in the shadow of the ambiguity of the US decision to import gas from Egypt to Lebanon, the convoy of Iranian fuel ships, the first of which is coming to Lebanon in a week. The only hope of the Lebanese people is in the shadow of the suffocating US siege against Lebanon.

    Hussein al-Haj Hassan, a member of the Lebanese parliament’s Faithful Resistance faction, said one of the reasons for the fuel crisis in the country was the collapse of the political and economic situation, as well as the shaky banking and economic system.

    He also stressed that the sluggishness and negligence of officials in identifying and arresting smugglers and swindlers and not creating a serious and appropriate mechanism to prevent hoarding and smuggling has given some people the opportunity to easily use gasoline, gas and fuel oil. Smuggled and stored in their warehouses.

    The representative of the faction loyal to the resistance further stressed that Hezbollah is seeking to supply fuel to Lebanon from Iran with the aim of reducing the suffering of the people and breaking the US siege against Lebanon.

    Syria had previously supplied 375 megawatts of electricity to Lebanon, but this process had stalled due to US sanctions and the subsequent “Caesar Act”. The situation in Syria is different now because the fuel required by the power plants has been reduced as a result of the siege and thus the ability to supply electricity to Lebanon has decreased.

    “These cases show that US sanctions against Syria are also affecting Lebanon, a SIEGE
    that the US government is pursuing with its human rights claims,” ​​he said. The world has acted against these countries.

    Try to search for the story of Stanley Meyer’s engine which is patented but never came to be with the inventor being assassinated while trying to negotiate the commercial development of his novel engine which splits autonomously Hydrogen from Oxygen. That invention would have done away with the problem of Hydrogen distribution that Iris mentions.

    Truth of the matter, it is not the worthiness of the technology that will impose the kind of energy that the world should adopt but the interests of the gatekeepers who would never relinquish their stifling fist over the neck of the consumer.

    On a positive note, China has started an electric energy pilot plant based on Thorium which is much more available and far more energy intensive than Uranium with the added advantages of being much safer and cheaper to use. Thorium backed by the might of the Chinese government has a far better chance of changing the world’s energy policy than Stanley Meyer.

  159. @Commentator Mike

    This an article from Trendsresearch.com about Thorium:

    In the next few months, China will finish building a new nuclear reactor in a desert near the city of Wuwei.
    Nuclear power plants aren’t new but the technology running China’s plant is: it runs on thorium, not uranium as the world’s other nuke plants do.
    Actually, molten salt nuclear reactors using thorium as fuel aren’t news (“New age for new energy,” Trends Journal, 8 December 2014).
    Thorium as a safer, cheaper fuel for electricity generation was vetted by plants as far back as the 1950s.
    It was an obvious choice.
    Trends Journal 137 3 August 2021

    Thorium is generously scattered around the globe, four times more plentiful than uranium.
    It’s able to deliver as much as 300 times more energy for generating electricity than an equal volume of uranium while yielding less than 1 percent of uranium’s toxic waste.
    In an electricity generating reactor, as much as 99 percent of the thorium can be consumed, compared to typically 2 percent or less of the uranium.
    Thorium also isn’t fissile, which means it won’t explode when a critical mass piles up: no meltdowns, no Chernobyl—or Fukushima-style world-impacting disasters.
    But thorium technology was shelved 60 years ago in favor of uranium, which is fissile and could provide quick, cheap raw material for making nuclear bombs after generating plants had used it.
    Now the technology has been rediscovered (“Nuclear Power on the Rise,” Trends Journal, 19 September, 2018). China launched its thorium R&D program in 2011 and is preparing to flip the switch on the world‘s first commercial-scale thorium-powered nuke plant.
    In this design, the nuclear fuel—thorium—flows through the reactor in a slurry of molten salt, kept at normal atmospheric pressure. The salt acts as a coolant, eliminating the need for miles of plumbing and concrete cooling towers as tall as skyscrapers.
    If there is a break or accident, a molten salt reactor won’t blow up or melt down; when exposed to air, the salt solidifies and locks the nuclear material in place instead of letting it soak into the ground or leak into a body of water.
    When the thorium fuel is spent, most of its radioactivity abates in less than 100 years, although some will remain for 500 years—still 20 times better than the 10,000-year toxicity life of spent uranium fuel.

    Kudos for Hussein al-Haj Hassan for this gem of a truth. Though he should have added that all political parties that have joined successive Lebanese governments since the Taif Accord are responsible for the cumulative effect of corruption and political patronage that swelled the ranks of the by and large unproductive government employees to more than three hundred thousands which is approximately one third of the Lebanese labor force. Hizbollah has done a wonderful job kicking the Israeli invaders out of Lebanon, but if people do not survive by bread alone, countries do not thrive by Land liberation alone. Hizbollah has failed to kick the ass of the money changers from the temple of Lebanon’s economy starting with his closest allies all the way to his political enemies.

    The 9/11 nuclear Holocaust was conducted deliberately to cause maximum civilian casualty: on the morning of 9/11, at 06:47, over 2 hours before the attacks*, the operatives working for Larry Silverstein purposely disabled the master alarm system in WTC7 by setting it to “maintenance” mode, in order to ensure that no alarm would be carried over to the North and South Tower when an embedded demolition system would be triggered 3 hours later.

    By doing so, they ensured that the Towers would not be evacuated and that a maximum number of occupants would die a gruesome death.

    A major problem is that Neoliberal economics, which is complete poison, has a very strong following in the elites throughout the world, for obvious reasons.

    Rouhani was a member of the powerful and influential Neoliberal clique that exists in Iran.

    Part of the Iranian economic problem are the draconian US imposed sanctions…

    The other part, not so visible, and which have made the situation much worse than it would have to be, particularly under Rouhani, was the wholesale adoption of Neoliberal economics in Iran.

    Not long ago, economist Michael Hudson criticized the Neoliberal economic policies of Russia under Putin, who has been in power for a very long time, but last i checked, was unable, or, perhaps more likely, unwilling to change this.

    Iranian sources reported that the first ship carrying fuel for Lebanon has entered Syrian water. This information reported, at least, 15 hours ago. They did not give more specifics or how the fuel is going to be taken to Lebanon.

    The same sources also reported that some suspicious activities like joint US-Israel naval exercise is taking place.

    After the visit of Israel PM with Biden, the news media reported that the first joint US-Israeli naval exercise was held in the Red Sea.

    The sudden maneuver of the United States and Israel in the Red Sea has several main reasons, the most important of which goes back to the beginning of the process of importing fuel from the Islamic Republic of Iran to Lebanon. Ever since Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah announced that the first Iranian ship had sailed to Lebanon, a wave of Zionist concern about this shipment has been evident in the media.

    A basic security system, such as fire detection and associated sound alarms/public address, is designed to automatically protect a floor, a building, a factory, a mall, or any such pre-defined physical zone.

    These basic systems can be overridden by a master safety system, generally intended to tacle a danger more rare and more serious, which has priority to take immediate control of their operation, and to activate their alarms.

    For instance, a chemical complex made of several plants will be fitted with a safety override that will activate each individual plant evacuation unit in case of gas leak, a danger considered greater and more immediate to humans .

    Nowadays in the West, most public venues are fitted with a safety override for the occurrence of terrorist attack, controlled from the security office. You just don’t know it.

    The people who built the WTC nuclear demolition system were professional engineers, not rabid-drolling Zionist psychopaths a la Larry Silverstein.

    When they build the demolition control centre under WTC7, they linked its activation (by wiring) to the fire evacuation systems in the North and South Tower, and made it a master override system.

    In this fashion, the activation of the demolition scheme would infallibly evacuate, hence protect the people inside the Twin Towers. This is always how safety systems are made error-proof: by relying on engineering controls, notwithstanding human operational errors.

    Except that this safety logic does not work anymore when a system is put in maintenance mode, which purpose is precisely to disable the alarms while technicians are testing or repairing.

    So I repeat, and hopefully this time, this very simple and obvious little technical narrative will be easy enough to be understood, perhaps even by the Zionist profound imbeciles such as Taubman and Lousy Kacker:

    – At 06:47 on the morning of 9/11, “somebody” deliberately disabled the override Master security system in WTC7, that controlled the local evacuation systems in the North and South Tower.

    – By doing so, this “somebody” ensured that when the nuclear demolition system was activated, no alarm would go off in the Twin Towers so that people remain inside and a maximum number of them got sacrificed.

    Saudi Arabia: MBS’s comments on extremism and Islamic laws cause stir

    https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/saudi-arabia-mohammed-bin-salman-extremism-religion-hadith-interview-criticism

    Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s lengthy interview on state television earlier this week has already drawn headlines, around his rhetoric against “religious extremists” and the interpretation of religious texts.

    During the 90-minute interview on Tuesday with state-owned Rotana TV, the de-facto Saudi ruler said he sought “good and special” relations with arch-rivals Iran, after reported secret talks were held this month.

    Hadith comments criticised

    The crown prince also used the interview to touch on issues relating to Islamic jurisprudence.

    “Our constitution is the Quran, has been, still is, and will continue to be so for ever,” he stated.

    He went on to say that punishment as it pertained to Sharia (Islamic law) could only be enforced with clear stipulation from the Quran or “explicit stipulation” from the Sunnah (customs and practice) as informed by the sayings of the prophet.

    With regards to the latter, he drew a distinction between different types of hadith, based on the strength of veracity.

    MBS said that the government would implement Quranic regulations and teachings based on Mutawatir hadith (sayings of the prophet reported by a significant number of narrators), while needing to look into the reliability of Ahad hadiths (sayings reported by a single source). He described the latter as “not as compelling” as the former.

    The interpretation drew criticism online.

    Translation: In his speech, bin Salman opened the door to whoever wants to attack or question Al Bukhari and Al Muslim and the rest of those who narrated hadiths. This opens another door to reactions to jurisprudence rulings that were built on those hadiths. The paranoia is so much, to the extent that he thinks he is capable of revolutionising the religion of God

    Like I said before, MBS is a gentleman. He not only destroyed Wahhabism, but put a big hole in the Six Authenticated Books of Sunni Hadiths. Basically, he validated that the Shia are correct all along.

    As I said, on my first day on this forum, that the Muslims are United and the Ummah is becoming one.

    Israel, chew on that!

    Hard to tell, are you trying to shift the goalpost, or just doubling down on nothing? You said,

    “… at 06:47, …operatives…disabled the master alarm system in WTC7 by setting it to “maintenance” mode, in order to ensure that no alarm would be carried over to the North and South Tower when an embedded demolition system would be triggered 3 hours later.”

    “3 hours later.” At 9:47, more than an hour since first hit, they were already in full evacuation mode, minutes before final collapse (12 min. & 41 min. respectively). At that point, what difference would it have made if an alarm told them bldg.7 was in peril? (Bldg.7 that didn’t collapse until after 5pm.)

    I’m sure some people see alot of wrds and assume you’ve said something important. This was suspenseful, but what a letdown. If you want to hate on Silverstein, and Jews in general, then find a defensible way to do it. And stop pretending to be a science expert.

    I’ve posted a great deal of proof on my own in the recent article in UR titled ‘9/11 was a Straussian Coup’ that emphatically demonstrates a nuclear event.

    Also, exponential levels of Strontium, Barium and other elements.

    All of the above are SIGNATURE CHARACTERISTICS of a nuclear event.

    The ONLY times such thing occurred in human history [at these elevated levels] were in the aftermath of events like:

    1) Chernobyl
    2) Fallujah Iraq (saturated with DU munitions)
    3) Bikini Atoll nuclear testing (occurred to the nearby islanders that were not evacuated).
    4) Hiroshima, Nagasaki.

    Salam Taxi,

    You are not addressing the TWO BIG Elephants in the room. Everybody is skirting the issue, and they are afraid to call spade a spade. They don’t tell the TRUTH, being afraid that they will warn Israel, including you TAXI, too. I will like you to address the following TWO BIG Elephants:

    Elephant One: Israel is blackmailing USA that if they are pushed, they will denote the Nukes in Middle East. This blackmail started in 1967, during the six days war. Israel deliberately destroyed USS Liberty, the killed lots of USA citizens. President Johnson sent planes to destroy Israel, but they were called back due to blackmail. President Kennedy and Robert Kennedy (1967) were both murdered and we know why. Especially to stop Robert Kennedy to became the President in 1968. USA don’t want Israel to have peace and they are constantly keeping Israel confused with help of KSA and Iran. Israel has now become sooo fanatic, that nobody in Israel wants peace anymore. With the new technology being discussed by IRIS, the threats of Israel’s Nukes will be neutralize.

    Elephant Two: USA has tremendous influence on KSA. See my post #187 addressed to you but you didn’t reply. With the encouragement of USA, Islam is being United and the Ummah is becoming One. All those lies for 1500 years feed by Banu Omayyad who were in bed with the Jews of Median is being challenged by none other than KSA, who consider Banu Omayyad the darling of Wahhabism. KSA has basically thrown the Omayyad under the bus. Being a religious issue it is touchy subject and especially how to counter 1500 years of FAKE HISTORY OF ISLAM. Extreme caution is required, but it will happen.

    USA had filled so much hot air in Netanyahu that he didn’t want peace. Israel and its’ politician are very confused and have become extremely fanatic. They know what is going around and what is happening around them, but they are helpless. On a brighter note, the coalition government of Israel passed the state budget yesterday on the first reading, which means Netanyahu is history and most probably going to prison. Even if the coalition wants peace, USA will not allow and keep them confused.

    So, please sister TAXI, address these two issues without worrying that you might warm Israel. USA is paying for the sins of Evil sins of UK and France.

    It was EVIL BRITISH EMPIRE that created Isreal. After WWII, the same Empire pulled two fast ones on USA. Israel got UK and France to capture Suez Canal, so to choke off Egypt’s economy and destroy Jamal Abdul Nasser. It was USA President Eisenhower who made them retreat when he gave ultimatum to UK, if they won’t retreat he will destroy the Financial Center of London. The second one was the overthrow of the government of Iran, the Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegha and installing Shah to destroy Islam. Competition started in all Muslim countries regarding their women who will have the shortest mini skirt. With Sayyid Khomeini the hijab was back.

    From the horse’s mouth how Bennett is reminding Biden of Israel’s Nukes.

    Biden reportedly reaffirms pact not to push Israel on its alleged nukes

    Agreement backed by every president since Nixon binds US to not pressure Jerusalem on joining non-proliferation treaty in exchange for Israeli promise not to use bombs. US President Joe Biden signed a letter reaffirming the US commitment to decades-old strategic understandings with Israel over its alleged nuclear arsenal, according to a Wednesday report.

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/biden-reportedly-reaffirms-pact-not-to-push-israel-on-alleged-nukes/

    They say if you keep on repeating lies, it eventually becomes truth. Taxi, do you believe if you keep on repeating truth, that it will eventually become lie? Or, would it reinforce the truth by repeating it? One only hears the Hasbara BS that Israel has nukes in all their embassies all over the world, thus defecting from real issue of the Israel’s nukes. No one has to balls to talk about Israel’s nukes and that it should be under UN supervision. Only John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy did, and we know what happen to both of them. God bless them!

    Hasn’t Israel divided the Muslims’ World with FAKE News that Iran is developing Nukes. Aren’t the Sunni scared and falling over each other to became Israel’s friend. Isn’t KSA and Iran are at odds, especially now that Shia Crescent has been created from Iran to Syria. Forget Iran and KSA, aren’t the six nations of GCC are at odds with each other. Aren’t Sunni evil and Shia good! So, how can be possible that the Muslims are becoming One and the Ummah is being United.

    Those will intricate knowledge of Islam and at the same time intricate knowledge of their surroundings know what is going on, unless they are into sectarianism. Israel is no fool, but Israel has painted herself into corner and has become very fanatic. There is no turning back for Israel, as the path they have chosen will keep on continuing.

    The Jews hijacked Islam. The Christian King who gave protection in the early days of Islam to most of the Clan of Prophet (saws), put a knife in the back of Christainity by spreading Islam with SWORD. Since, that day on, the Christians and Muslims have been on each other’s throat. How many times, Jews have penetrated both Christianity and Islam to destroy them within. Please give credit to both Christianity and Muslims. Give proper credit to Arabs and Iranian that they are no fool.

    Anyone, who is trying to put a wedge between Christianity and Islam is doing the work of The Tribe. And, there are Jews who are sick of what The Tribe has done throughout the history of mankind, and what they still are doing.

    At least, it is clear now that you are a profound retard who “understood” everything the wrong way round.

    The reason why “some people” understand technical discussions even if it’s not their area of expertise is because they are intelligent, while you can’t because you a congenital imbecile.

    Who cares about the alarm going off in WTC7? As a matter of fact it actually did go off and is recorded on video.
    Who said anything or cared about WTC7 collapsing upon people, since it was empty?
    What has WTC7 to do with the civilian victims, since WTC7 was deserted as soon as the false flag attack started, apart from a few individual accessing briefly?

    Read again, imbecile, and try to understand since it is so dead simple even a sheep would have by now :

    – The WTC nuclear demolition scheme had its control room inside and underneath WTC7, a government-controlled building.

    – The 3 nuclear heads were all permanently stored under WTC7, for obvious safety, security and maintenance reason.

    – When the order to activate the nuclear demolition scheme came, it triggered a number of engineering actions: the warheads were released, their control systems were enabled, their rail track transportation system was powered up, the protective shutters blocking their delivery tunnels lifted up, and more importantly a control signal should have been sent instantaneously from WTC7 to the North and South Tower, to trigger each of their respective evacuation alarm systems and evacuate them, since they were the ones about to be demolished. Not WTC7, moron.

    – When the activation order is given, the nuclear head has still to be released, loaded onto its rail carriage, moved throughout its underground delivery tunnel at slow pace to minimise vibrations and shocks, reach underneath its respective Tower, be lowered even deeper into a borehole, until positioned in an explosion chamber at -75 metres under bedrock level, armed and finally detonated after a timed delay, so the operator can himself get away from the command centre as a precaution.

    All this long list of actions takes about 30 minutes. How do I know? Because it was the time elapsed between the collapse of the South and North Tower.

    Working backwards, WTC1 collapsed at 10:28, WTC2 at 9:59, so the nuclear demolition order would have been given at around 9:30.

    So if the master safety system in WTC7 had not been deliberately disabled by your Silverstein scum, it would have triggered both of the slave safety systems in each respective Twin Tower at 09:30, which in turn would have set off their alarms instantaneously and evacuated the people inside.

    Those innocents in the South and North Tower would have had respectively half-an-hour and one entire hour to escape an atrocious death. Instead, they were pulverized alive.

    So do you understand now, Zionist POS? Is this explanation simple enough for the shit swimming in your cranium? Be sure you will pay for what you did to this people.

Hillary is smart to murder Seth Rich in Washington DC. But Arabs are dumb and evil. MBS, instead of eliminating Khashoggi in Washington DC, he had to send him in Turkey to be eliminate in their consulate and chopped into pieces, which is a sovereign property. And, the whole world knows about it.

    Biden reportedly reaffirms pact not to push Israel on its alleged nukes

    Why now Israel is making their Nukes front line news when they have maintained a policy of official ambiguity on the issue? WHY?

    Has the time come to repeat the threat once again?

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/biden-reportedly-reaffirms-pact-not-to-push-israel-on-alleged-nukes/

    The understandings reportedly endorsed by Biden grew out of a 1969 agreement between US president Richard Nixon and prime minister Golda Meir that Washington would not push Israel to join the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and Jerusalem would not declare, test or threaten use of its nuclear weapons.

    Although the oral agreement continued to be honored through the Reagan administration, Israel reportedly grew concerned over whether the unwritten deal would hold during the presidency of George H.W. Bush, after calls by the US leadership for the Middle East to be free of weapons of mass destruction in the wake of the 1991 Gulf War.

    Following Bill Clinton’s election as president, it was put into writing and the US signed the first such letter, agreeing to allow Israel to maintain its “strategic deterrence,” according to the Walla report.

    Similar letters were later signed by US presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, despite the latter initially sparking concern in Israel after voicing support for a nuclear weapons-free world.

    Let us see, those umpteen authors on this site have the courage to make the above USA policy a repeated issue? Poor Nixon who was disgraced from the Office.

    Iranian fuel tanker heading for Syria poses test for US sanctions

    Contents will be trucked to Lebanon to ease energy crisis, a plan that could challenge US resolve towards two foes

    An Iranian tanker carrying fuel bound for Lebanon was at anchor in the Red Sea on Friday ahead of the final leg of a voyage to Syria, which is set to pose the biggest test yet to US sanctions imposed on two arch regional foes.

    The tanker is expected in the Syrian port of Baniyas early next week, in defiance of US sanctions that prevent oil exports from Iran and imports to Syria, which have both been subject to stringent US-imposed restrictions on trade. The imminent arrival is being hailed by the Lebanese militant group turned political bloc, Hezbollah, as a sanctions-busting solution for an energy crisis that has brought Lebanon to a standstill and led to widespread blackouts.

    The last leg of the journey looms as a critical test for US resolve to continue with embargos that have taken a significant toll on Iran, which Washington hopes to cajole into returning to the nuclear deal, and Syria, which is emerging from a decade-long war that has ravaged its economy.

    Translation: In his speech, bin Salman opened the door to whoever wants to attack or question Al Bukhari and Al Muslim and the rest of those who narrated hadiths. This opens another door to reactions to jurisprudence rulings that were built on those hadiths. The paranoia is so much, to the extent that he thinks he is capable of revolutionising the religion of God

    You see the Renaissance or Revolution taking place within Islam. I am sure Israel and Mossad are well aware of it. The true history of Islam is coming out!

    Fake Sunnah, fake Hadiths, fake Sharia and the fake History are being cleaned out!

    And it was you, 13 months ago, who cited the very same Al Bukhari and Al Muslim as basis for your personal grooming…

    I am always accused of sectarianism due to lack of intricate knowledge of Islam by non-Muslims. I always try to be truthful, especially when it comes to religion. Al Bukhari and Al Muslim are not my books, they are the books of opposition. We are not allowed to quote from our books to make our case. So therefore we try to show that Al Bukhari and Al Muslim contradict the Holy Quran. Not only they contradict the Holy Quran but they contradict within themselves and to each other too. MBS has to be very careful, as he is not only trying to reverse the 1500 years of brainwashing, but he is also indirectly endorsing the Shia religion.

    There is lots going on in Arabic chat rooms and Arabic forums. One side people say how can he say something like this, surely these are propaganda being spread by the Iranians and we want to personally listen from his lips. On another side people counter, look at our Ulemas (scholars), they are slowly, slowly changing things and doing so they are endorsing the Shia religion. These Ulemas thingy is been going on for quite a few years. Therefore, my comments, Islam is being United and the Ummah is becoming One!

    Quran says it is easy to understand, and one should question, question, question the Quran … But Al Bukhari and Al Muslim say if one doesn’t understand the Hadith, then something is wrong with that person. And, one should not question the authenticity of the Hadith as they have been personally certified by Al Bukhari and Al Muslim to be true and correct.

    Mohamed.

    I warn TROLLS go to your Arabic chat room and say these lies to them to see what kind of reaction you the trolls will receive. I am sure these liars will get a kick in the ass.

    You are nothing but a troll for MBS and zionists because MBS is zionist mass murder and a servent of Jewish mafia and Israel. Saudi Arabia is the image of Israel who assassinate critics to silence them and dissolve their bodies in Acid to remove, in their small heads, the ‘evidence’, but the world already knows who are these mass murderers.

    The criminal tribes of Zionists and Al-saud are twins. We don’t need a troll comes here to paint MBS, terrorist as ‘reformist’ to fool others.

    The best to deal with these trolls is to ignore them.

    Rai Al-Yawm newspaper editor’s Abdul Bari’ Atwan expresses his contempt of America, Israel and their Arab client states:

    Until when will this catastrophe last? Lebanon is going through a true humanitarian tragedy.

    May the Almighty God bless Hassan Nasrallah, and may He bless the Iranian nation who responds to the humanitarian call and provides such succour with its oil.

    Where is the Arab oil? Where is the Arab Gas?
    All [the Gulf states] are crying crocodile tears about Lebanon, “the Pearl of the Levant“, but none of them stood in help of the Lebanese, not a single tanker came from Saudi Arabia or the Gulf countries to alleviate the suffering of the Lebanese people.

    Why? Because they are scared of America, and scared of Israel.
    But there are people who have fear, neither of America nor of Israel.

    The America and Israel we used to know in the past are long gone.
    In the past, Israel would fly its air force, win a victory and get white flags raised within six hours.
    But all this is over, because America is not a super-power anymore.

    These are not my words: Ben Wallace, a former Defence minister for Britain, America Nr1 ally, said so in an interview to The Guardian. America is not a superpower anymore.

    Remember, in 2019, Britain seized an Iranian ship headed to Syria off the coast of Gibraltar. In response, the Iranians seized three ships !! They forced Britain to release the Iranian vessel, which completed its route safely and delivered its cargo to Syria.

    And another example: America sent a Global Hawk drone over the Ormuz Strait. It was shut down by the Iranian missiles at an altitude as high as 20 km ! America swallowed the bitter defeat pill and shut up.

    And now, it is going to shut up too and swallow this new defeat [the delivery of the Iranian tankers].
    What is it gonna do? Attack? People will respond to the attack, the entire Lebanese people will, because there will be no factions here. As Hezbollah expressed it: the Iranian oil is for ALL Lebanese, no matter their political inclination, faith, or ethnicity.

    Arab states edge closer to reconciliation with Syria

    “With Syria’s military and political stabilization now a near certainty, most Arab countries that had severed relations with Damascus have, to varying degrees, reinstated their diplomatic representatives in Syria, either by sending an ambassador or a chargé d’affaires back to the Syrian capital.”

    The traditional position of Damascus as regional mediator has been sorely missed in tumultuous West Asia. Now Arab states are lining up to re-establish relations with Syria, but face a hard American veto on diplomacy.

    Envoy: Iran-Saudi talks ‘friendly’; both sides seeking progress

    Iran’s Ambassador to Iraq Iraj Masjedi says the Islamic Republic and Saudi Arabia have yet to mutually agree on the time and location of their next round of negotiations.

    “The time and venue of the fourth round of talks between Iran and Saudi Arabia have not been decided yet, and we will make a decision on that by mutual agreement,” Iraqi news outlets quoted him as saying on a TV program Tuesday.

    Masjedi reiterated that the Islamic Republic wants brotherly relations with Saudi Arabia in political, economic and cultural fields.

    Pointing to three rounds of negotiations held between Iranian and Saudi delegations in the Iraqi capital, the envoy said the negotiations are ongoing and the two sides are adamant to continue until progress is made.

    “Despite three rounds of dialog, the talks are still continuing and when we reach definite results, we will announce them,” he said.

    Eat your heart out, RobinGoyim!

    Living in Europe or USA, you don’t have the slightest idea, what revolution is taking place within Islam! Al-Suad care less for Islam, but they very much care for their THRONE. To maintain it, they have no choice, but to join mainstream and non-violent Islam. They like Israel, no longer can play Iran’s nukes card. They desperately need Iran to rejoin the Ummah! The Shia are in power these days, but they won’t let this go through their heads. The Shai have always been meek and always will remain meek!

    Afghanistan should be an eye opener for you. The Taliban 2.0 are much different than the earlier Taliban. They have already announced that besides Isreal, they will recognize all countries, including USA.

    MBS is more shrewd, than most people give him credit for! His only interest is to save his crown!

  221. Arab states edge closer to reconciliation with Syria

    Iran wants revolution in Islam. Iran wants all Muslims Countries Constitution to be based on Quran and Mutawatir Hadiths. Check out my above post #187 very carefully.

    [MORE]

    Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s lengthy interview on state television earlier this week has already drawn headlines, around his rhetoric against “religious extremists” and the interpretation of religious texts.

    During the 90-minute interview on Tuesday with state-owned Rotana TV, the de-facto Saudi ruler said he sought “good and special” relations with arch-rivals Iran, after reported secret talks were held this month.

    MBS said that the government would implement Quranic regulations and teachings based on Mutawatir hadith (sayings of the prophet reported by a significant number of narrators), while needing to look into the reliability of Ahad hadiths (sayings reported by a single source). He described the latter as “not as compelling” as the former.

    “When we commit ourselves to follow a certain school or scholar, this means we are deifying human beings,” the crown prince claimed during the televised discussion.

    “God did not put a barrier between himself and the people. He revealed the Quran and the prophet implemented it, and the space for interpretation is open permanently.”

    He said that if Wahhab had been alive now, he would be the first to object to people “committed blindly to his texts” and closing their minds to interpretation and jurisprudence.

    “We should engage in continuous interpretation of Quranic texts,” he said. “All fatwas should be based on the time, place and mindset in which they are issued.”

    https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/saudi-arabia-mohammed-bin-salman-extremism-religion-hadith-interview-criticism

    We know that a Mutawatir Hadith is from many sources and accepted by all Muslims. Most of the Mutawatir Hadiths are establishing and praising the Ahlul Bayt, meaning the Prophet (saw) his daughter Bibi Fatima (as), his first cousin Imam Ali (as) who is the husband of Bibi Fatima, and their two sons, Imam Hassan (as) and Imam Hussain (as).

    Over here in Canada, I wasn’t aware of these outrageous facts about modern day Lebanon. (Our media doesn’t exactly enlighten us about this — or much else.) Thanks for providing this information, Taxi and the Unz Review. Long-term, I suspect these corrupt activities will rebound against the perpetrators…
