  • While America struggles with crises in health care, hunger, and homelessness, Congress has found the time to entertain over four dozen bills and resolutions that cater to a wealthy, heavily-armed state: Israel.

    On January 3rd, 2019, freshly-elected United States Senators and Representatives took the oath of office before beginning their work of legislating for their country. One phrase of the oath includes the promise to “defend the Constitution.” How odd, then, that the first order of business for the new Senate was not a call to end the government shutdown, boost the economy, or improve health care. The Senate’s first bill of the year focused on the interests of a foreign country, advancing policy that is costly to US taxpayers – and unconstitutional. Our Senators chose to prioritize the State of Israel.

    S.1, the “Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act of 2019,” proposes legislation that would authorize $38 billion in aid to Israel over the next ten years, and protect the Israeli government from the boycott. Three additional bills supporting Israeli interests came up that first day, all in the House, and a total of at least eleven in Congress’ first month. In under a year, 47 of our 535 legislators (9%) have penned well over fifty pieces of favorable legislation about Israel. At that same time, two bills addressing Palestinian needs have been proposed in the House; the Senate has heard none.

    For the sake of comparison, consider Saudi Arabia, another close ally of the United States – so close that our governments maintained friendly relations despite the fact that nearly all of the 9/11 attackers were Saudi nationals. In 2019, our Congress introduced about sixty bills and resolutions about Saudi Arabia, the vast majority of which criticized its government’s policies. For example, a number of bills expressed disapproval of arms sales to Saudi Arabia; others rebuked the kingdom for its human rights abuses, violence against journalists, and failure to uphold freedom of the press; still others called for the US to exit the Saudi-led coalition waging war in Yemen. Israel, on the other hand, was the subject of dozens of supportive, even complementary pieces of legislation – although Israel, like Saudi Arabia, is guilty of human rights abuses, has committed hundreds of violations against Palestinian journalists, and is violently engaging with its neighbors. While the Saudi kingdom finances its own actions, Israel is accomplishing its brutality with the help of $10 million per day in US military aid.

  • -via Laith Marouf

    The invasion of Syria by Neo-Ottoman-Turkey has created huge fractures within the Empire. Germany asked NATO if Turkey can be kicked out. Italy summoned the Turkish ambassador. France, Greece and the Netherlands have condemned it. The EU asked the UNSC to condemn it, only to be shut down by the US. Apartheid Israel condemned it and said they will be sending "aid" to the Kurdish Contras. Saudi Occupied Arabia and its holdings, UAE, Jordan, Bahrain and Egypt, condemned it and called for an Arab League summit on Saturday. And the Imperial Senate drafted a by-partisan law to severely sanction Turkey if they don't withdraw.

    On the other hand, Ikhwani Qatar blessed it. Erdogan threatened to open the borders for 2.5 million Syrian refugees to go to Europe if he is sanctioned by it, and to let all ISIS prisoners in northern Syria loose. The UK refused to condemn Turkey and said its coordinating with the US. Trump when asked about where the ISIS prisoners would go if they escape, he said to Europe who refused to take them when they were under the US hold before the withdrawal. And not to forget, India asked for restraint by Turkey and safeguarding the unity of Syrian territory.

    It should be noted, what could be called the axes of resistance, all condemned the invasion. Syria itself accused Erdogan of committing the highest form of war-crime under international law; a war of aggression unauthorized under Chapter-7 of UNSC. Iraq, Lebanon, the Yemeni resistance and Iran, all condemned it forcefully.

    As for Russia, it also was part of why the UNSC did not condemn Turkey, it had signaled that it would veto any motion using that language; probably in an effort to compete over Turkish favor, with Trump who had authorized the invasion. Russia stated that it will be organizing a meeting between the Turkish and Syrian governments. Russia also asked the Syrian government to meet with the Kurdish Contras, but the Syrian government angrily responded that it has no interest at this time to meet with traitors that work for the US.

  • Never underestimate the power of blowback. Right now, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MBS), the de facto ruler of the House of Saud, is staring at it, an ominous abyss opened by the Houthis in Yemen.

    This past weekend, Yemeni Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier Yahya al-Sari clinically described how Ansarallah, also known as the Houthi rebel movement, aided by what Yemenis describe as “popular committees,” captured three Saudi brigades of 2,400 – ragged – soldiers, plus Yemeni and Sudanese mercenaries as well as several hundred battle vehicles. At least 500 Saudi soldiers were killed, Ansarallah said. (A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition denied the claim). This was part of the significantly named Operation Nasrallah in Najran province, Saudi Arabia. The Houthis, who did learn a lot, tactically and strategically, from Hezbollah, duly praised mujahideen and ‘popular committees’ involved in Operation Nasrallah.

    Col. Pat Lang, in his blog, offers a particularly useful observation on the captured Saudi vehicles. Some belonged to the Saudi National Guard (SANG): “I suppose these troops were from the modernized SANG that the US has worked hard to train and equip for fifty years or more. The easy surrender of these Bedouins is very bad news for the Saudi monarchy.” Najran, the site of the successful raid, is a Shi’ite majority province. But unlike the Eastern province, concentrating the bulk of the Saudi oil industry, where the Shi’ites are Twelvers – believers in twelve divinely ordained leaders, awaiting the reappearance of the last of those twelve imams as the promised Mahdi – in Najran the majority are Ismailis. Until recently, they had been relatively accommodating to the rabidly anti-Shi’ite House of Saud.

    Not anymore. As I reported before, increasingly daring Houthi operations inside Saudi Arabia can only be successful with solid, on-the-ground intelligence. As for the captured, ragged Saudi soldiers, Mohamed Al-Bukhaiti, who is part of Ansarallah’s political wing, confirms they are mostly takfiris – true believers who think they see among their fellow Muslims legions of apostates, deserving of the death penalty – and jihadis. In Beirut, I spent a long time in detailed conversations with Hassan Ali Al-Emad, scholar, politician and the son of an influential Yemeni shaykh dominating 12 tribes. Originally a Zaydi himself, Al-Emad with the help of other Yemeni sources confirmed that the main actors are in fact the Houthi movement – and not only the Houthi tribe, which is only one tribe among many Zaydi tribes in north Yemen. The capital Sana’a was taken over by the Houthi movement, and not only the Houthi tribe.

    This is essential to understand the fact that most of north Yemen have by now adhered to the Houthi movement – which also happens to double as the government of north Yemen. It’s not far-fetched to project that the Houthi movement may end up uniting the overwhelming majority of Yemen against the House of Saud.

  • and the UK with their Brexit...........all a 'dog and pony show' because the military-industrial complex never sleeps and the kleptomaniacs will be thieving even more so now. Look at Syria, they have practically cleaned house but they have to battle for their real 'assets' now which counts for their country's survival.

    “The three leaders who have led the anti-Iran line in recent years were each absorbed in his own domestic crisis this week,” Haaretz wrote on Thursday.

    The Israeli paper pointed to the recently intensified impeachment inquiry surrounding US President Donald Trump and pre-indictment hearings threatening the tenure of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the past week as signs that the two leaders were mired in crisis. Haaretz also highlighted that the “mysterious” death of the long-time personal bodyguard of Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud earlier this week had “embarrassed” Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Riyadh faces renewed global criticism on the anniversary of the brutal murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

    Numbering other setbacks for Riyadh in the past week, Haaretz highlighted a major Yemeni operation in the country’s northern region of Najran against Saudi-led troops. The operation led to the death of about 200 Saudi-led forces and the capture of another 2,000 troops.

    Iran's 'relaxed week'

    The article went on to describe Iran’s latest international developments in comparison, claiming that the country had experienced a “relaxed week” despite “pressure of the US sanctions and the country’s economic distress.” It wrote that “Iranian President Hassan Rohani received an enthusiastic welcome at the United Nations General Assembly in New York” last week, adding that Trump has been “wooing” the Iranian president in order to get a chance to meet with him.

  • We have recently been witnessing events of considerable importance in the Middle East, almost on a daily basis. The tensions between Washington and Tehran are fueled above all by the Trump administration’s need to placate most of the US deep state, wedded to neoconservatives, who march in lockstep with Trump’s financiers from Wahhabi Saudi Arabia and Israel.

    The aggressive policy towards Tehran, consisting of provocations and false-flags, has recently resulted in the type of public-relations disaster for the US military-industrial that I have anticipated for years would happen. The attack by Yemen’s Houthis struck two major oil installations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, exposing the shortcomings of the very expensive American Patriot air-defense systems. This attack shocked policy-makers around the world by demonstrating how low-cost, asymmetric means of warfare can be effective beyond all expectations, able to inflict billions of dollars worth of damage with an outlay of just a few thousand dollars. The real extent of damage caused by the Houthi attack remains unknown, with Aramco struggling to provide official information.

    More than 50% of the oil production was interrupted by the attack, with unconfirmed reports suggesting Riyadh may need to import considerable quantities of oil from Iraq. As if this scenario were not enough to complicate Saudi survival plans, Israel and the neoconservatives are pushing for an armed response against Tehran that would see Saudi Arabia bearing most of the cost. The Al Saud family, aware of Iranian military capabilities, seems to have softened their belligerent tone against Iran. In this already volatile Middle Eastern situation that risks uncontrollable conflagration, the risks for the Saudis are quite clear, and perhaps also all too well known to them. The Saudi kingdom exists in a precarious condition, held up by the welfare it extends to the population. If a war were to result in death, destruction, and impoverishment, then how long could the House of Saud last before being overthrown in an Arab Spring-type insurrection guided by Washington? Saudi Arabia’s importance, it must be realized, lies not so much on who governs it but on its ability to control OPEC and impose the sale of oil in US dollars, thereby ensuring Washington’s centrality to the global economy thanks to the concept of the global reserve currency.

    Beijing’s recent decision to grant a credit line of between 280 and 400 billion US dollars to the Islamic Republic of Iran is part of a broad-spectrum strategy that looks to the distant and not just immediate future. Certainly, Iran will benefit from this economic aid that will compensate for the lack of earnings from the sale of oil due to US secondary sanctions. Beijing intends to enter the Iranian gas and oil market, helping Iranian state-owned companies to develop fields, plants, logistics, ports, and energy hubs, thereby ensuring a future supply of oil and gas for a country experiencing strong economic and demographic growth. If we expand on the reasoning behind China’s intentions and relate it to Middle Eastern and US interests, an interesting picture emerges, one that needs to be carefully evaluated.

This attack shocked policy-makers around the world by demonstrating how low-cost, asymmetric means of warfare can be effective beyond all expectations, able to inflict billions of dollars worth of damage with an outlay of just a few thousand dollars. The real extent of damage caused by the Houthi attack remains unknown, with Aramco struggling to provide official information. More than 50% of the oil production was interrupted by the attack, with unconfirmed reports suggesting Riyadh may need to import considerable quantities of oil from Iraq. As if this scenario were not enough to complicate Saudi survival plans, Israel and the neoconservatives are pushing for an armed response against Tehran that would see Saudi Arabia bearing most of the cost. The Al Saud family, aware of Iranian military capabilities, seems to have softened their belligerent tone against Iran. In this already volatile Middle Eastern situation that risks uncontrollable conflagration, the risks for the Saudis are quite clear, and perhaps also all too well known to them. The Saudi kingdom exists in a precarious condition, held up by the welfare it extends to the population. If a war were to result in death, destruction, and impoverishment, then how long could the House of Saud last before being overthrown in an Arab Spring-type insurrection guided by Washington? Saudi Arabia’s importance, it must be realized, lies not so much on who governs it but on its ability to control OPEC and impose the sale of oil in US dollars, thereby ensuring Washington’s centrality to the global economy thanks to the concept of the global reserve currency. Beijing’s recent decision to grant a credit line of between 280 and 400 billion US dollars to the Islamic Republic of Iran is part of a broad-spectrum strategy that looks to the distant and not just immediate future. Certainly, Iran will benefit from this economic aid that will compensate for the lack of earnings from the sale of oil due to US secondary sanctions. Beijing intends to enter the Iranian gas and oil market, helping Iranian state-owned companies to develop fields, plants, logistics, ports, and energy hubs, thereby ensuring a future supply of oil and gas for a country experiencing strong economic and demographic growth. If we expand on the reasoning behind China’s intentions and relate it to Middle Eastern and US interests, an interesting picture emerges, one that needs to be carefully evaluated. https://iranian.com/2019/10/04/iran-is-chinas-secret-weapon-for-killing-off-the-us-dollars-global-reserve-status/?fbclid=IwAR3DsZ4aYY1QWfok_D9FZX2nuACIL5g3bzckZSWj__Au26xqck49AcpHVZg

  • Declassified British government documents obtained by The Grayzone show that prominent regime-change activists who work in academia and market themselves as leftists have been quietly teaching training sessions for the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense.

    Among these UK military collaborators is the scholar Gilbert Achcar, a frequent contributor to Jacobin Magazine and Democracy Now who teaches international relations at the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies. Achcar has publicly identified himself as a Marxist while vehemently advocating for the overthrow of independent post-colonial governments in Libya and Syria. Achcar defended foreign intervention in Libya in 2011, insisting “no one can reasonably oppose” the so-called no-fly zone, which was used to violently overthrow the government. And in 2018 he signed an open letter calling for foreign intervention in Syria, citing the “responsibility to protect” doctrine in order to “forcibly stop” the war.

    At the same time, Achcar has repeatedly attacked the anti-imperialist left, without ever publicly disclosing his work with the British military. The regular educational sessions led by Achcar and other top academics were organized to train the Defense Cultural Specialist Unit. This wing of the British military is staffed by senior officers who wear full uniform and are embedded with other soldiers on the battlefield. The unit’s cultural specialists have played a key role in the British war on Afghanistan, and have advised the military on how to operate in other countries, including several nations that were previously colonized by Britain.
    Many of the academics involved in these training sessions also teach at the School of Oriental and African Studies, which is known for hiring and producing post-modernist scholars who are progressive but staunchly anti-communist, and often supportive of NATO-backed regime-change efforts and Islamism. Some of the other scholars involved in the British military program include prominent Yemen expert Helen Lackner, the popular pundit Lina Khatib, and the former director of the BBC’s Arabic and Turkish services.

    Like Achcar, Lackner is a regular contributor to left-wing news outlets such as Jacobin Magazine, which this July co-sponsored a socialism-themed conference that featured numerous regime-change activists from US government-funded organizations. Jacobin has continued publishing articles by Achcar even after his involvement with the British military was first exposed in July by the UK’s Morning Star newspaper and its reporter Phil Miller.

  • The interview with Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad Bin-Salman aired by the American CBS channel on Sunday was noteworthy in three respects.

    First, he spoke and behaved like Saudi Arabia’s absolute ruler. He barely mentioned his father King Salman and accepted responsibility for the murder of Jamal Kashoggi in his capacity as the country’s chief executive in charge of its three million state employees. Second, he was unusually conciliatory towards Iran and its allies, completely abandoning the hawkish escalatory tone that has characterized most if not all his previous interviews. Third, the man who launched the Yemen war and pledged to continue waging it in the name of ‘legitimacy’ insisted he was open to any effort to bring it to a peaceful end, and that he prefers a political solution to a military one.

    The most plausible explanation for this sudden outbreak of dovishness is that the Saudi Crown prince feels betrayed and deceived by his Western allies, especially the US. They left him standing alone to face a succession of Iranian or Iranian-backed attacks and failed to retaliate after key Saudi oil facilities were targeted three times in succession — including the very nerve center of its petroleum industry in Abqeiq and Khreis, slashing its output by half. Then came the stunning rout of Saudi and allied ground forces on the Najran front in Yemen, which resulted in the killing and injury of hundreds of troops and the capture of 2,000 along with vast quantities of military equipment. The CBS interview was taped a few days before the Houthi Ansarullah announced and show video footage of this devastating and humiliating setback for the Saudi military. But as he is also minister of defense, the crown prince must have known it was coming.

    He had also clearly begun trying to find go-betweens to mediate with Iran. Both the Pakistani and Iraqi prime ministers confirmed after recent visits to Riyadh that they had been asked to play such a role. Iran has also acknowledged that foreign leaders have conveyed Saudi offers of dialogue while saying Tehran will not respond until Riyadh makes such calls openly. Five years after starting the war in Yemen, Muhammad Bin-Salman has apparently come to understand that he can never win it. Not only that, but the tables have turned and the Houthis have moved from the defensive to the offensive. Their drone and missile strikes have reached deep into Saudi Arabia, and the kingdom’s air defenses, acquired from the US at the cost of tens of billions of dollars, have proven pathetically ineffective.
