  1. Taliban Is Winning The War In Afghanistan

    Highest rate of deaths and injuries since war began * Richard Norton-Taylor * The Guardian, Tuesday 16 December 2008 The number of deaths and serious injuries among British troops in Afghanistan are running at the highest rate than at any time since the conflict began seven years ago. In the last 10 days alone at least 20 marine commandos have been evacuated by air to Britain, according to defence officials. Military sources admit that attacks on British soldiers, from roadside bombs and conventional weapons, are at an extremely high level. In the first 11 months of the year, 59 soldiers were categorised by the Ministry of Defence as wounded seriously or very seriously in Afghanistan. The 20 recent cases take the total to 79, compared to 63 in 2007, 31 in 2006 and just two in 2005. The figures emerged as Gordon Brown confirmed to MPs that the number of British troops deployed in Afghanistan would be increased by 300 in March to total 8,300. The extra 300 men will come from the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers which has been on standby for deployment. The government will be under pressure from the US to deploy even more - perhaps an extra battlegroup of 1,500 soldiers - during the run-up to the Afghan presidential campaign next autumn. Brown said yesterday that other countries needed to play their part in the Nato-led operations. "The burden is not always shared equally," he said. Defence officials could not say how the 20 marines evacuated from Afghanistan over the past 10 days were wounded. Officials admitted, however, that a number of them had received bad injuries at the hands of the Taliban. Some sources say the figure of 20 is too small. However, even the figure admitted by defence officials means that more soldiers have been seriously injured this year than in 2007 which was itself a record. Defence officials explain the increase partly by saying that more British troops have been deployed to Afghanistan. But they admit British forces are coming under heavier fire from a resilient Taliban. Eleven British soldiers have been killed in southern Afghanistan since the beginning of last month; nine of them were marines. Three soldiers were killed in one week in November. They were killed by a suicide bomber, a roadside bomb and rocket-propelled grenades. Forty British troops have been killed in southern Afghanistan this year out of a total of 132 since the conflict started in 2001. The government yesterday doubled the maximum compensation for armed forces personnel seriously injured in service from £285,000 to £570,000 under plans first announced in July. The increases are retrospective and are expected to result in £10m paid to 2,700 troops. All injured personnel who have received an award under the existing armed forces compensation scheme will receive an increase of between 10% and 100% of their original payment. For the most seriously injured, the payments are in addition to a tax-free, index-linked monthly payment for the rest of their life after leaving the armed forces. A 19-year-old seriously injured soldier could receive more than £1m over the course of his life under the new system. Letters were being sent to the 140 most seriously injured yesterday with details of their increased compensation payments and the MoD said they would get their additional money within a few days.
  2. Bush Dodges A Shoe

    Shoe-hurling Iraqi becomes a folk hero By Timothy Williams and Abeer Mohammed Published: December 16, 2008 BAGHDAD: Calling someone the "son of a shoe" is one of the worst insults in Iraq. But the lowly shoe and the Iraqi who threw both of his at President George W. Bush, with widely admired aim, were embraced around the Arab world on Monday as symbols of rage at a still unpopular war. In Saudi Arabia, a newspaper reported that a man had offered $10 million to buy just one of what has almost certainly become the world's most famous pair of black dress shoes. A daughter of Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi, the Libyan leader, reportedly awarded the shoe thrower, Muntader al-Zaidi, a 29-year-old journalist, a medal of courage. In the Baghdad neighborhood of Sadr City, people calling for an immediate American withdrawal removed their footwear and placed the shoes and sandals at the end of long poles, waving them high in the air. And in the southern Iraqi city of Najaf, people threw their shoes at a passing American convoy. In street-corner conversations, on television and in Internet chat rooms, the subject of shoes was inescapable throughout much of the Middle East on Monday, as was the defiant act that inspired the interest: a huge and spontaneous eruption of anger at Bush on Sunday in his final visit here. "Although that action was not expressed in a civilized manner, it showed the Iraqi feelings, which is to object to the American occupation," said Qutaiba Rajaa, a 58-year-old physician in Samarra, a Sunni stronghold north of Baghdad. But many more expressed undiluted pleasure. "I swear by God that all Iraqis with their different nationalities are glad about this act," said Yaareb Yousif Matti, a 45-year-old teacher from Mosul, in northern Iraq. Zaidi, who remained in custody on Monday, provided a rare moment of unity in a region often at odds with itself. Glee, even if thinly veiled, could be discerned in much of the reporting, especially in places where anti-American sentiment runs deepest. In Syria, Zaidi's picture was shown all day on state television, with Syrians calling in to share their admiration for his gesture and his bravery. In central Damascus, a huge banner hung over a street, reading, "Oh, heroic journalist, thank you so much for what you have done." In Lebanon, reactions varied by political affiliation, but curiosity about the episode was universal. An American visitor to a school in Beirut's southern suburb, where the Shiite militant group Hezbollah is popular, was besieged with questions from teachers and students alike, who wanted to know what Americans thought about the insult. "It's the talk of the city," said Ibrahim Mousawi, a Beirut journalist and political analyst affiliated with Hezbollah. "Everyone is proud of this man, and they're saying he did it in our name." The instantly mythic moment took place Sunday night at a news conference by Bush and Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in Baghdad's Green Zone, a session meant partly to trumpet recent security gains in Iraq. As Bush was speaking, Zaidi rose abruptly from about 12 feet away, reared his right arm and fired a shoe at the president's head while shouting in Arabic: "This is a gift from the Iraqis; this is the farewell kiss, you dog!" Bush deftly ducked and the shoe narrowly missed him. A few seconds later, the journalist tossed his other shoe, again with great force, this time shouting, "This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq!" Again, the shoe sailed over the president's head. Zaidi was subdued by a fellow journalist and then beaten by members of the prime minister's security detail, who hauled him out of the room in his white socks. Zaidi's cries could be heard from a nearby room as the news conference continued. Zaidi, who has not been formally charged, faces up to seven years in prison for committing an act of aggression against a visiting head of state. It was unclear whether his popularity would prompt Maliki's regime to lighten his punishment. Source: International Herald Tribune
  3. Bush Dodges A Shoe

    Shoe-thrower's brother: He wanted to humiliate 'tyrant' Bush From Jomana Karadsheh CNN BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- The brother of the journalist now famous for hurling his shoes at President Bush said his sibling's actions were "spontaneous" and represented millions of Iraqis who want to "humiliate the tyrant." Dhirgham al-Zaidi, who sometimes worked as his brother's cameraman, described the reporter's hatred for the "material American occupation". Supporters of Muntadhar al-Zaidi say that his feelings were influenced by watching the agony suffered by everyday Iraqis. Most of the reporter's stories focused on Iraqi widows, orphans, and children, said the brother. Sometimes the 29-year-old journalist would cry, his brother said, adding that he would be so moved by the tales he reported of poor families that he asked his colleagues to give money to them. On most nights, he returned to his home in central Baghdad after reporting from Sadr City, one of the country's most violent slums and the epicenter of several of the war's battles. Muntadhar al-Zaidi's reporting for Egypt-based independent television Al-Baghdadia was "against the occupation," his brother said. The journalist would occasionally sign off his stories "from occupied Baghdad." Shouting as he was dragged to the floor, the reporter called his shoe-throwing -- a traditional insult in Arab culture -- a "farewell kiss" to a "dog" who launched the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The al-Zaidi family plans to retain Egyptian lawyers to defend Muntadhar al-Zaidi. The reporter's brother said the family has not been contacted by the Iraqi government. Dhirgham al-Zaidi said he is "proud" of his brother whose act, while rash, was a statement of behalf of "millions" of other Iraqis. Dhirgham said the shoe throwing was "Iraq's reaction" to the war and years of U.S. sanctions against Iraq before the conflict began. The reporter was not motivated for personal reasons, or because he has "anything against the American people," he said. Dhirgham al-Zaidi says his brother started working for in 2005 as one of its founding staff members. Al-Baghdadia is devoting round-the-clock coverage to the incident and calling for the immediate release of the reporter whose co-workers describe him as usually "calm and polite." In a statement read on the air, Al-Baghdadia said al-Zaidi should be freed "in accordance with democracy and freedom of expression Iraqis were promised by the new era and American authorities." The channel also ran the reporter's image with what it said were messages of support from viewers in a crawl at the bottom of the screen and called on Arabs, Muslims and Iraqis to support "your brother."
  4. Bush Dodges A Shoe

    Saddam Hussain is an Iraqi patriot who was brave enough to defy and resist the brutal US imperialism until the end of his life. On the contrary, there are a few Iraqi hypocrites and traitors who become the US whores by cooperating and conspiring with the US regime to occupy Iraq illegally and terrorize innocent Iraqi people. Shame on the US rabid dogs.
  5. Bush Dodges A Shoe

    Thank you very much. Nice to see you too for you are my good brother.
  6. Bush Dodges A Shoe

    The Iraqi TV reporter Muntazer al-Zaidi is a brave Iraqi patriot who truly loves Iraq more than his own life by hurling his shoes at George W. Bush, an action hailed in the Arab world as an ideal parting gift to an unpopular US president to humiliate Bush and the US regime that have illegally attacked, invaded and occupied Iraq and terrorized, tortured, raped and murdered the countless innocent Iraqi people. Zaidi jumped up during a joint a news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on Sunday, and shouted: "It is the farewell kiss, you dog," and threw two shoes at the US leader. "Muntazer detested America. He detested the US soldiers, he detested Bush," said one on condition of anonymity. Soles of shoes are considered the ultimate insult in Arab culture. Only US rabid dogs such as Nouri al-Maliki kiss and lick GW Bush's feet while 99% of Iraqi people hate the US regime and the US puppet Iraqi regime very much. And now al-Zaidi is being tortured by Nouri al-Maliki's Nazi regime for humiliating the US regime and the US puppet Iraqi regime. We Muslims are very proud of Muntazer al-Zaidi for his brave action against the US war criminals and the Iraqi traitors. He is a Muslim hero. Saddam Hussein's former lawyer Khalil al-Dulaimi said he was forming a team to defend Zaidi and that around 200 lawyers, including Americans, had offered their services for free.

  7. Why Jesus Is Not God!but A Prophet Of God!

    The fact is you are corrupting some things into a lie. The fact is the Bible is corrupted into a lie by the keepers and writers of the Bible according to Jeremiah 8:8: "`How can you say, "We [the Jews] are wise, for we have the law of the LORD," when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?' (From the NIV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)" The Revised Standard Version makes it even clearer: "How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a lie. (From the RSV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)" In either translation, we clearly see that the Jews had so much corrupted the Bible with their man-made cultural laws, that they had turned the Bible into a lie! Therefore, we know that the entire Bible is corrupted and unreliable and is mostly filled with man-made laws and corruption! Jesus was a link in a long chain of prophets and messengers sent by Allah (God) to various societies and nations whenever they needed guidance or deviated from the teachings of Allah (God). Jesus was especially prepared by Allah (God) to be sent to the Jews who had deviated from the teachings of Moses and other Messengers. As he was miraculously supported by Allah (God) in conception, birth and childhood, he was also supported by numerous miracles to prove that he was a messenger from Allah (God). However, the majority of the Jews rejected his ministry. The Qur'an tells us about Jesus' mission in the following verses which are a continuation of the verses quoted earlier in which the glad tiding was brought to Mary: And He will teach him the Book, the wisdom, the Torah, the Gospel and make him a Messenger to the children of israel saying, “I have come to you with a sign from your Lord. I will create for you out of clay as the likeness of a bird; then I will breathe into It, and it will be a bird, by the power of God. I will also heal the blind and the leper and bring to life the dead, by the power of God. I will inform you too of the things you eat, and what you treasure up in your houses. Surely in that is a sign for you if you are believers. Likewise I will confirm the truth of the Torah that is before me, and to make lawful to you certain things that before were forbidden unto you. I have come to you with a sign from your Lord; so fear God, and obey me. Surely God is my Lord and your Lord; so serve Him. This is a straight path". (The Holy Quran 3:45-51) In another verse of the Qur’an, Jesus confirmed the validity of the Torah which was revealed to Moses and he also brought the glad tidings of the coming of a final messenger after him. This is clearly indicated in the following verse: And when Jesus son of Mary said. 'children of israel. I am indeed the Messenger to you, confirming the Torah that is before me, and giving good tidings of a Messenger who shall come after me, whose name shall be the praised one (note that this is translation of Ahmad which is Prophet Muhammad’s name). (The Holy Quran 61:6) The teaching of Jesus was not completed by Jesus based on the following Biblical verses: In John 16:12, Jesus said "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now".' and in John 14:26, Jesus said "But the Comforter, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all " Careful study of the New Testament shows that this same prophet is referred to by Jesus in John 14:16,17: And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Counselor, to be with you for ever, even the Spirit of truth. Later in John specific description of this Spirit of Truth and his role is given as we read in John 16:13,14.: When the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify Me... The terms of the prophecy do not warrant the conclusion usually attributed to this prophecy, namely that it refers to the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost explanation is excluded by a previous verse in John which reads: Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantages that I go away, for if I do not go away, the counselor will not come to you. It is clear from the Bible that the Holy Ghost used to visit men before and during the life-time of Jesus. John was filled with the Holy Ghost before he was born and Jesus himself received the Holy Ghost in the shape of a dove. The characteristics of this counselor, as can be derived from the prophecy, are the following: 1. He will not come until Jesus leaves. 2. He will stay forever, with the believers. 3. He will glorify Jesus. 4. He will speak what he hears from God. These characteristics are applicable only to Prophet Muhammad, as the following brief remarks show: 1. Prophet Muhammad was the only messenger that came after Jesus. There was a period of six centuries between them. Jesus' mission was limited to the "lost sheep of the children of israel”, but Muhammad's was a universal message. This explains the second characteristic. 2. Only Prophet Muhammad's message was intended by God to be a universal and everlasting message. This agrees with the statement that the counselor will stay forever with the faithful. 3. No other prophet glorified Jesus as much as Prophet Muhammad did. The Jews called him an impostor and accused his mother of immorality. They tried to crucify him. Prophet Muhammad considered Jesus as great Prophet and the “Word of God". The Qur'an attributed to him miracles that are not mentioned in the Bible. Mary is considered the most chaste woman and the best of all women in paradise. Thus did Muhammad really glorify Jesus. 4. The fourth characteristic also applies neatly to Prophet Muhammad. The Qur’an was revealed to Prophet Muhammad through the angel Gabriel. When the angel finished reciting the Qur’an, Prophet Muhammad used to convey verbatim to his companions what he heard from the angel without adding, changing or forgetting anything. The Qur'an also describes Prophet Muhammad saying “He does not speak out of his own fancy. He utters what is revealed to him." (53:4,5). If we compare this with, "He will not speak on his own authority", we see the striking similarity between the characteristics of the counselor and those of Prophet Muhammad. These and other prophecies in the old and new testaments predict in unequivocal terms the advent of Prophet Muhammad who is rejected by the Jews and Christians on the basis of misunderstanding and bias rather than on the basis of careful study of the Bible, the Qur'an and modern findings in the field of comparative religion. On the contrary, according to Matthew 10:34 , Jesus said "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword." The fact is Allah (God) had sent so many prophets to their tribes etc to guide them back to the true path of Allah (God). According to the Bible and the Quran, God had sent Jesus to the israelites only to guide them back to the true path of Allah. On the contrary, Allah (God) sends the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) to all mankind to guide them back to the true path of Allah (God). is the Seal of the Prophets and the true universal Messenger of Allâh to the whole mankind (Qur’an 33: 40). Allah (S.W.T.), the All-Mighty, makes this very clear: "We have not sent you (O Muhammad) but as a universal (Messenger) to men giving them glad tidings and warning them (against sin) but most men understand not." (Qurân 34: 28) Therefore, the Prophet Muhammad came to save the world. Jesus was not divine at all when he denied and reject the divinity by saying “By myself I can do nothing...” (John 5:30) and “...the Father is greater than I.” (John 14:28) etc. The Jews had corrupted the Bible into a lie (Jeremiah 8:8) and deviated from the teaching of Moses so Allah (God) sent Jesus to guide them back to the true path of Allah (God) but the pig-headed Jews rejected him and they even conspired with the Romans to murder him in vain because Allah had saved him. We know that the corrupt, immoral and rebellious Jews had murdered some Jewish prophets before the coming of Jesus. Jesus never said that he was God. On the contrary, it is the corrupt Christian priests who claim falsely that Jesus is God and worship him as fake God like the pagans had done in the past in vain. "But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." This verse, Matthew 15:9, is further supported by these words of the Quran: "And (remember) when Allah will say (on the Day of Resurrection): "O Jesus, son of Mary! Did you say unto men: "Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allah?" He will say: "Glory be to You! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, You would surely have known it. You know what is in my inner-self though I do not know what is in Yours, truly, You, only You, are the All-Knower o fall that is hidden and unseen. Never did I say to them aught except what You (Allah) did command me to say: ‘Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.’ And I was a witness over them while I dwelt amongst them, but when You took me up, You were a Witness to all things. (This is a great admonition and warning to the Christians of the whole world)." (The Holy Quran, Al-Ma’idah 5:116-117) Many people use certain verses of the Bible as proof that Jesus is God. However, all of these verses, when understood in context, prove the opposite! For example, in Matthew 9:2, Jesus said to a certain man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.” Because of this, some say that Jesus must be God since only God can forgive sins. However, if you are willing to read just a few verses further, you will find that the people “...praised God, who had given such authority to men.” (Matthew 9:8). This shows that the people knew, and Matthew agrees, that Jesus is not the only man to receive such authority from God. Jesus himself emphasized that he does not speak on his own authority (John 14:10) and he does nothing on his own authority, but he speaks only what the Father has taught him (John 8:28). What Jesus did here was as follows. Jesus announced to the man the knowledge Jesus received from God that God had forgiven the man. Notice that Jesus did not say, “I forgive your sins,” but rather, “your sins are forgiven,” implying, as this would to his Jewish listeners, that God had forgiven the man. Jesus, then, did not have the power to forgive sins, and in that very episode he called himself “the Son of Man” (Matthew 9:6). Therefore, Jesus is not God and Jesus is not divine at all because he is the Son of Man and Jesus is a servant of God. Note: I will refute the rest of Dunamis' post soon!
  8. Why Jesus Is Not God!but A Prophet Of God!

    Dunamis' post above will be answered soon.
  9. Why Jesus Is Not God!but A Prophet Of God!

    The authors of the first three Gospels believed that Jesus was 'the son of God' in the sense of a righteous person. Many others too, are similarly called sons of God (see Matthew 23:1-9). The 'peace makers' are also called the sons of God by the Bible because they are the righteous men. The Bible calls Jesus the SON OF MAN (eg. Matt. 8:20). In the book of Acts (2:22), he is described as “a man approved of God”. While he is called Son of God nearly 68 times, not once was he called GOD THE SON. The difference between the Two expressions is like the difference between the Prophet Jesus of history and the CHRIST created in the image of the Church. Therefore, God has no sons at all. God assured the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) and the whole world that what was mentioned above is the truth about Jesus although the Christians might not believe it. Jesus is not the son of God. He was, obviously enough, the son of Mary. The verses continue: That is Jesus, son of Mary, in word of truth, concerning which they are doubting. It is not for God to take a son unto Him. Glory be to Him! When He decrees a thing. He but says to it "Be". and it is. (The Holy Quran 19:34-5) After this strong statement about the nature of Jesus, God directed Muhammad to call the Christians to a fair deal: to worship the one God: Surely God is my Lord, and your Lord, so serve Him. This is the straight path. (The Holy Quran 19:38). The rejection of the idea of God having a son is reported later in the same chapter with even stronger words: And they say, 'The All-merciful has taken unto Himself a son.' You have indeed advanced something hideous. The heavens are well nigh rent of it and the earth split asunder, and the mountains well nigh fall down crashing for that they have attributed to the All-merciful a son; and it behooves not the All-merciful to take a son. None is there in the heavens and earth but he comes to the All-merciful as a servant. (The Holy Quran 19:88-93) The Qur’an recognizes the fact that Jesus had no human father but this does not make him the son of God or God Himself. By this criterion Adam would have been more entitled to be the son of God because he had neither a father nor a mother. So the Qur'an draws attention to the miraculous creation of both in the following verse: Truly the likeness of Jesus, in God's sight, is as Adam's likeness; He created him of dust. then said He unto him, "Be", and he was. (The Holy Quran 3:59) Adam, who had neither a father nor a mother, was not the son of God and neither was Jesus who had no father. The fact is God has no sons so Jesus is not the Son of God: Translations of the Qur'an, Chapter 112: AL-IKHLAS (SINCERITY) Say: He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him. 'Isa (Jesus) is a messenger(servant) of Allah (God) just like the other messengers of Allah such as: * Adam * Idris (Enoch) * Nuh (Noah) * Hud * Saleh * Ibrahim (Abraham) * Isma'il (Ishmael) * Ishaq (Isaac) * Lut (Lot) * Ya'qub (Jacob) * Yousef (Joseph) * Shu'aib * Ayyub (Job) * Musa (Moses) * Harun (Aaron) * Dhu'l-kifl (Ezekiel) * Dawud (David) * Sulaiman (Solomon) * Ilias (Elias) * Al-Yasa (Elisha) * Yunus (Jonah) * Zakariyya (Zechariah) * Yahya (John) * Muhammad Islam teaches that God has sent prophets to humanity, in different times and places, to communicate His message. Since the beginning of time, God has sent His guidance through these chosen people. They were human beings who taught the people around them about faith in One Almighty God, and how to walk on the path of righteousness. Some prophets also revealed God's Word through books of revelation. All prophets gave guidance and instruction to their people about how to properly worship God and live their lives. Since God is One, His message has been one and the same throughout time. In essence, all prophets taught the message of Islam - to find peace in your life through submission to the One Almighty Creator; to believe in God and to follow His guidance. Jesus referred to himself as a prophet (Lk. 13:33-34). Others also called him a prophet. (Lk. 7:16, 24:19, Jn. 6:14, Heb. 3:1). Referred to as a servant of God (Acts 3:13, 4:27, 30, Matt. 12:18). And Allah sent Isa (Jesus) to lost sheep of the house of israel only: Matthew 15:24 I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of israel. The Qur'an also affirms Jesus's prophethood: And when Jesus son of Mary said: O Children of israel! Lo! I am the messenger of Allah unto you, confirming that which was (revealed) before me in the Torah (The Holy Quran, As-Saff 61:6) "He [Jesus] said: 'I am indeed a servant of God. He has given me revelation and made me a prophet; He has made me blessed wheresoever I be; and He has enjoined on me prayer and charity as long as I live. He has made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable. So peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)!' Such was Jesus the son of Mary. It is a statement of truth, about which they (vainly) dispute. It is not befitting to (the majesty of) God that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! When He determines a matter, He only says to it, 'Be,' and it is" (The Holy Quran 19:30-35).

US forces kill eight in helicopter raid on Syria[using large font size is not allowed] * Ian Black, Middle East editor and Ewen MacAskill in Washington * The Guardian, * Monday October 27 2008 * Article history Damascus reacts with fury to what it says was a helicopter and special forces strike on its territory Link to this video American helicopters flying from Iraq landed inside Syria yesterday and dropped special forces who killed eight people, the Damascus government said last night, as Washington admitted it had targeted "foreign fighters." Syria warned that it held the US "wholly responsible for this act of aggression and all its repercussions". It described the dead as Syrian civilians, five of them members of the same family. Syrian state television reported that the attack was against a farm near Abu Kamal, five miles from the Iraqi border. Doctors in nearby al-Sukkariya said another seven people were taken to hospital with bullet wounds. The incident threatened to unleash a new wave of anti-American feeling in Syria and across the Middle East at a time when President Bashar al-Assad, already being courted by Europe, is looking forward to improved relations with Washington after the November 4 presidential election. News of the attack led bulletins across the Arab world last night - suggesting it will have wide resonance. Syria summoned the US charge d'affaires in Damascus to explain the incident. It also called on the Iraqi government to prevent its airspace being used in this way in future. Eyewitness accounts said eight US soldiers landed in two helicopters and that the dead were building workers. A senior Syrian source quoted by the official Sana news agency, said four helicopters violated Syrian airspace and described the target as a "civilian building under construction".

  11. The US Regime Attacks Syria

    US embassy shut as Syrians protest over deadly raid by Roueida Mabardi Roueida Mabardi – Thu Oct 30, 8:55 am ET DAMASCUS (AFP) – The US embassy in Syria shut its doors on Thursday as thousands marched through Damascus to protest at a deadly American raid on a village near the Iraqi border that Syria branded a barbaric act. Security was boosted around the area housing the US embassy, which decided to close because of the potential threat of violence, although demonstrators stayed away from the mission. "Colonialists, listen, the people of Syria will never be brought to their knees," cried youths as they massed in the city centre, waving Syrian flags and pictures of President Bashar al-Assad. Demonstrators, including civil servants and students, waved Syrian flags and banners reading "No to American terrorism" and "American democracy -- the killing of civilians at Abu Kamal," the area targeted in Sunday's US raid. "I want to denounce this act of American terrrorism. We are going to liberate Palestine, and Syria will liberate its occupied land," said a Palestinian woman named Shaimaa. The protest wound down after several hours with no reports of violence, with security tight in the Abu Rumaneh area where the US embassy as well as the Saudi and Iraqi missions are located. The US embassy announced on its website it had closed Thursday because of a possible demonstration and warned American citizens to stay away from the area. It said the decision was made "due to past demonstrations which resulted in violence and significant damage to US facilities and other embassies," adding that the American school would also be temporarily shut. In September 2006, a failed attack on the US embassy left four attackers and one Syrian security agent dead. Damascus says eight civilians, including children, were killed in a helicopter assault on Sunday launched by US troops from Iraq on a Syrian village, which has provoked condemnation from a number of foreign governments.

  12. The US Regime Attacks Syria

    US helicopter raid on Syria: the reaction "Cold-blooded murder and war crime" is how Tishrin, the Syrian government newspaper, describes the death of eight civilians in a US helicopter attack on a Syrian farm. The paper says four children, three men and a woman were killed in the raid and the US "must bear full responsibility for this aggression". It calls on the Iraqi government to investigate why its territory was used as base from which the US attacked Syria. The Saroujan blog, written by Sasa, a 29-year-old Damascus accountant, says the strike was "a comprehensive attack, not a mistake". He says it is the first one since the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Damascus was considering its response to the attack, Reem Haddad of the Syrian information ministry told al-Jazeera. "No doubt there will be a reaction [from Syria] of some kind," Haddad said, telling the station's website that the attack was a "flagrant violation" of the new security arrangement between Iraq and the US. Akram Hameed, a man in his 40s who said he was injured in the attack while fishing in the Euphrates river, told Syrian television he saw four helicopters coming from the border area. "The firing lasted about 15 minutes and when I tried to leave the area on my motorcycle, I was hit by a bullet in the right arm about 20 metres away," he said. According to al-Jazeera, Syrian television showed what it said was the injured wife of the building's guard in hospital with a tube in her nose. She said two helicopters landed and two remained in the air during the attack. Reuters television footage showed the farm, a truck riddled with bullet holes and blood stains on the ground. "Four helicopters came from different directions and hovered. Two of them landed and soldiers got out and started shooting," Osama Malla Hameed, the owner of a nearby farm, told the agency. The Syrian press attache in London, Jihad Makdissi, told the BBC the attack was "an outrageous crime and an act of aggression". "If [the US has] any proof of any insurgency, instead of applying the law of the jungle and penetrating, unprovoked, a sovereign country, they should come to the Syrians first and share this information," he said. Makdissi said the US government had "proved to be irrational and they have no respect for international law or human rights". He warned Syria would "respond accordingly in the proper way".

  13. Wiseguy says "GOODBYE"

    Assalamualaikum sisters and brothers in Islam and hi non-Muslims, I have been writing so many posts on this Islamic Forum for about a year and now it is the right time for me to say "GOODBYE' to everyone for I am leaving this forum for good. Dorothy Thompson: There is nothing to fear except the persistent refusal to find out the truth, the persistent refusal to analyze the causes of happenings. Edward R. Murrow: Most truths are so naked that people feel sorry for them and cover them up, at least a little bit. George Orwell: In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. Noam Chomsky: It is the responsibility of intellectuals to speak the truth and expose lies. Goodbye everyone.
  14. Columbus: The Iron-fisted Tyrant

    My posts above refute the baseless nonsensical allegations made by Christopher Columbus's lovers such as the so-called greatergood and RobS. The conclusion is Christopher Columbus was a mass murderer. Columbus Day is a celebration of violence. My post ends here.
  15. Columbus: The Iron-fisted Tyrant

    How Christians wiped out native Americans in the name of Christianity: The population of North America prior to the first sustained European contact in 1492 CE is a matter of active debate. Various estimates of the pre-contact Native population of the continental U.S. and Canada range from 1.8 to over 12 million. 4 Over the next four centuries, their numbers were reduced to about 237,000 as Natives were almost wiped out. Author Carmen Bernand estimates that the Native population of what is now Mexico was reduced from 30 million to only 3 million over four decades. 13 Peter Montague estimates that Europeans once ruled over 100 million Natives throughout the Americas. European extermination of Natives started with Christopher Columbus' arrival in San Salvador in 1492. Native population dropped dramatically over the next few decades. Some were directly murdered by Europeans. Others died indirectly as a result of contact with introduced diseases for which they had no resistance -- mainly smallpox, influenza, and measles. Later European Christian invaders systematically murdered additional Aboriginal people, from the Canadian Arctic to South America. They used warfare, death marches, forced relocation to barren lands, destruction of their main food supply -- the Buffalo -- and poisoning. Some Europeans actually shot at Indians for target practice. 14 Oppression continued into the 20th century, through actions by governments and religious organizations which systematically destroyed Native culture and religious heritage. One present-day byproduct of this oppression is suicide. Today, Canadian Natives have the highest suicide rate of any identifiable population group in the world. Native North Americans are not far behind. The genocide against American Natives was one of the most massive, and longest lasting genocidal campaigns in human history. It started, like all genocides, with the oppressor treating the victims as sub-humans. It continued until almost all Natives were wiped of the face of the earth, along with much of their language, culture and religion. Christopher Columbus: "Christopher Columbus has been a genuine American hero since at least 1792 when the Society of St. Tammany in New York City first held a dinner to honor the man and his deeds." Columbus Day has been celebrated as a national holiday since 1934 in honor of this dedicated and courageous explorer. Unfortunately, his character had a dark side. Columbus described the Arawaks -- the Native people in the West Indies -- as timid, artless, free, and generous. He rewarded them with death and slavery. For his second voyage to the Americas: "Columbus took the title 'Admiral of the Ocean Sea' and proceeded to unleash a reign of terror unlike anything seen before or since. When he was finished, eight million Arawaks -- virtually the entire native population of Hispaniola -- had been exterminated by torture, murder, forced labor, starvation, disease and despair." 1 A Spanish missionary, Bartolome de las Casas, described eye-witness accounts of mass murder, torture and rape. 2 Author Barry Lopez, summarizing Las Casas' report wrote: "One day, in front of Las Casas, the Spanish dismembered, beheaded, or raped 3000 people. 'Such inhumanities and barbarisms were committed in my sight,' he says, 'as no age can parallel....' The Spanish cut off the legs of children who ran from them. They poured people full of boiling soap. They made bets as to who, with one sweep of his sword, could cut a person in half. They loosed dogs that 'devoured an Indian like a hog, at first sight, in less than a moment.' They used nursing infants for dog food." 3 The Spaniards eventually went on to conquer Mexico and the southern U.S. Source: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetreligioustolerance(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/genocide5.htm"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetreligioustolerance(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/genocide5.htm[/url]
  16. Columbus: The Iron-fisted Tyrant

    Christopher Columbus had many similarities with criminals like Hilter, Stalin, Mussolini, GW Bush, Genghiz Khan, Attila, Sharon, Olmert etc: First voyage Columbus also explored the northeast coast of Cuba (landed on October 28) and the northern coast of Hispaniola, by December 5. Here, the Santa Maria ran aground on Christmas morning 1492 and had to be abandoned. He was received by the native cacique Guacanagari, who gave him permission to leave some of his men behind. Columbus left 39 men and founded the settlement of La Navidad in what is now present-day Haiti.[18] Before returning to Spain, Columbus also kidnapped some ten to twenty-five natives and took them back with him. Only seven or eight of the native Indians arrived in Spain alive, but they made quite an impression on Seville.[15] Second voyage During his second voyage, Columbus and his men instituted a policy in Hispaniola which has been referred to by numerous historians as genocide. The native Taino people of the island were systematically enslaved and murdered. Hundreds were rounded up and shipped to Europe to be sold; many died en route. For the rest of the population, Columbus demanded that all Taino under his control should bring the Spaniards gold. Those that didn't were to have their hands cut off. Since there was, in fact, little gold to be had, the Taino fled, and the Spaniards hunted them down and killed them. The Taino tried to mount a resistance, but the Spanish weaponry was superior, and European diseases ravaged their population. In despair, the Taino engaged in mass suicide, even killing their own children to save them from the Spaniards. Within two years, half of what may have been 250,000 Taino were dead. The remainder were taken as slaves and set to work on plantations, where the mortality rate was very high. By 1550, 60 years after Columbus landed, only a few hundred Taino were left on their island. In another hundred years, perhaps only a handful remained.[22][23][24][25] Source: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_en.wikipedia(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wiki/Christopher_Columbus"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_en.wikipedia(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wiki/Christopher_Columbus[/url]
  17. The fact is RobS, greatergood , pakham aka p-2 etc are among the disinformationalists working inside this forum. greatergood (greater evil) is lucky because I am not allowed to respond to greatergood's posts.
  18. RobS the Zionist, It seems to me that you are a desperate Zionist who are trying to slander me in vain. The fact is my posts are always supported by evidence, facts, logic etc. On the contrary, you RobS and your nonsensical posts do not show us any concrete evidence but wild baseless allegations Here are some examples that expose your failure to show us any concrete evidence to support your wild baseless allegations etc: You said "Why do I have to prove anything to you? It is obvious I know more about the situation in Pakistan than you do."

You also say "And you want me to prove I know Pakistanis? You are completely ridiculous. My word should be sufficient". It seems to me that you are insulting your own mind because your words do not prove anything but your wild nonsensical baseless allegations. And you RobS are a Zionist joker for saying : I've been told by people who used to visit there from Pakistan. And I have heard (from my Pakistani sources)....... I do read the Pakistani news and I do know Pakistanis, both in the US and in Pakistan.....bla.....bla......bla.....bla....bla.....bla... .. The fact is that you have failed to verify your wild nonsensical baseless allegations above indicating that you RobS are the shameless born liar. There are so many other wild nonsensical baseless allegations on other threads that you had written to insult your own moronic Zionist brain. You are so pathetic.

  21. al-Qaeda = al-CIAda

    Yet More Proof "Al Qaeda" = CIA How much more evidence is needed? Pakistan is about to extradite some known terrorists to Iran, several members of an 'Al Qaeda' group which the US has supported and funded. If they get sent to Iran their trial may blow the insane "war on terror" farce out of the water. Expect some event which will be blamed on the Pakistanis and it's bombs away to keep the lies from being exposed. Pakistan May Turn Over U.S. 'Spies' to Iran "In another sign of growing tensions with the United States, Pakistan is threatening to turn over to Iran six members of a tribal militant group Iran claims are "spies" for the CIA. The group, Jundullah, operates in Baluchistan on both sides of the border between Iran and Pakistan and has carried out a number of violent attacks on Iranian army facilities and officers inside the country. The CIA has denied any direct ties with the group, but U.S. officials tell ABC News U.S. intelligence officers frequently meet and advise Jundullah leaders, and current and former intelligence officers are working to prevent the men from being sent to Iran." Prison Planet tells us: "As the London Telegraph reported last year, "The CIA is giving arms-length support, supplying money and weapons, to an Iranian militant group, Jundullah, which has conducted raids into Iran from bases in Pakistan." Jundullah is a Sunni Al-Qaeda offshoot terrorist group formerly headed by the alleged mastermind of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, reported the Asia Times in 2004."
  22. al-Qaeda = al-CIAda

    CIA has created, trained, supported and financed Al-Qaeda: Historical Background What are the historical origins of Al Qaeda? Who is Osama bin Laden? The alleged mastermind behind the 9/11 terrorists attacks, Saudi-born Osama bin Laden, was recruited during the Soviet-Afghan war, "ironically under the auspices of the CIA, to fight Soviet invaders".(Hugh Davies, "`Informers’ point the finger at bin Laden; Washington on alert for suicide bombers." The Daily Telegraph, London, 24 August 1998). In 1979 the largest covert operation in the history of the CIA was launched in Afghanistan: "With the active encouragement of the CIA and Pakistan’s ISI, who wanted to turn the Afghan Jihad into a global war waged by all Muslim states against the Soviet Union, some 35,000 Muslim radicals from 40 Islamic countries joined Afghanistan’s fight between 1982 and 1992. Tens of thousands more came to study in Pakistani madrasahs. Eventually, more than 100,000 foreign Muslim radicals were directly influenced by the Afghan jihad." (Ahmed Rashid, "The Taliban: Exporting Extremism", Foreign Affairs, November-December 1999). This project of the US intelligence apparatus was conducted with the active support of Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), which was entrusted in channelling covert military aid to the Islamic brigades and financing, in liason with the CIA, the madrassahs and Mujahideen training camps. U.S. government support to the Mujahideen was presented to world public opinion as a "necessary response" to the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in support of the pro-Communist government of Babrak Kamal. The CIA’s military-intelligence operation in Afghanistan, which consisted in creating the "Islamic brigades", was launched prior rather than in response to the entry of Soviet troops into Afghanistan. In fact, Washington’s intent was to deliberately trigger a civil war, which has lasted for more than 25 years. The CIA’s role in laying the foundations of Al Qaeda is confirmed in an 1998 interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski, who at the time was National Security Adviser to President Jimmy Carter: Brzezinski: According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahideen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, [on] 24 December 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise. Indeed, it was July 3, 1979, that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the President in which I explained to him that in my opinion, this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention. Question: Despite this risk, you were an advocate of this covert action. But perhaps you yourself desired this Soviet entry into war and looked to provoke it? Brzezinski: It isn’t quite that. We didn’t push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would. Question: When the Soviets justified their intervention by asserting that they intended to fight against a secret involvement of the United States in Afghanistan, people didn’t believe them. However, there was a basis of truth. You don’t regret anything today? Brzezinski: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam War. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire. Question: And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic fundamentalism, having given arms and advice to future terrorists? Brzezinski: What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the Cold War? ( "The CIA’s Intervention in Afghanistan, Interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser", Le Nouvel Observateur, Paris, 15-21 January 1998, published in English, Centre for Research on Globalisation, (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetglobalresearch.ca/articles/BRZ110A.html"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetglobalresearch.ca/articles/BRZ110A.html[/url], 5 October 2001, italics added.) Consistent with Brzezinski’s account, a "Militant Islamic Network" was created by the CIA. The "Islamic Jihad" (or holy war against the Soviets) became an integral part of the CIA’s intelligence ploy. It was supported by the United States and Saudi Arabia, with a significant part of the funding generated from the Golden Crescent drug trade: "In March 1985, President Reagan signed National Security Decision Directive 166 … [which] authorize[d] stepped-up covert military aid to the Mujahideen, and it made clear that the secret Afghan war had a new goal: to defeat Soviet troops in Afghanistan through covert action and encourage a Soviet withdrawal. The new covert U.S. assistance began with a dramatic increase in arms supplies — a steady rise to 65,000 tons annually by 1987 … as well as a "ceaseless stream" of CIA and Pentagon specialists who travelled to the secret headquarters of Pakistan’s ISI on the main road near Rawalpindi, Pakistan. There, the CIA specialists met with Pakistani intelligence officers to help plan operations for the Afghan rebels."(Steve Coll, The Washington Post, July 19, 1992.) The Central Intelligence Agency using Pakistan’s ISI as a go-between played a key role in training the Mujahideen. In turn, the CIA-sponsored guerrilla training was integrated with the teachings of Islam. The madrasahs were set up by Wahabi fundamentalists financed out of Saudi Arabia: "It was the government of the United States who supported Pakistani dictator General Zia-ul Haq in creating thousands of religious schools, from which the germs of the Taliban emerged."(Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA), "RAWA Statement on the Terrorist Attacks in the U.S.", Centre for Research on Globalisation (CRG), (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_globalresearch.ca/articles/RAW109A.html"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_globalresearch.ca/articles/RAW109A.html[/url] , 16 September 2001) Predominant themes were that Islam was a complete socio-political ideology, that holy Islam was being violated by the atheistic Soviet troops, and that the Islamic people of Afghanistan should reassert their independence by overthrowing the leftist Afghan regime propped up by Moscow. (Dilip Hiro, Fallout from the Afghan Jihad, Inter Press Services, 21 November 1995.)

  23. Israel Plans Iran Strike

    French FM warns israel plans Iran strike Global Research, October 5, 2008 Press TV Kouchner evokes the possibility of an israeli strike on Iran. French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner says israel would strike Iran, under the pretext that the country is seeking nuclear bombs. israel has long alleged that a nuclear Iran would pose an existential 'threat' to Tel Aviv, accusing Tehran, a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), of seeking weapons of mass destruction. The UN nuclear watchdog said in its latest report on Iran that it could not find any 'components of a nuclear weapon' or 'related nuclear physics studies' in the country. In a Haaretz interview published on Sunday, Kouchner said a nuclear weapon would not 'give any immunity to Iran'. "israel has always said it will not wait for the bomb to be ready," he added. The outspoken French minister, who is on a two-day visit to the Middle East, said Tel Aviv would 'eat' Iran before the 'bomb' is ready. He later released a statement saying that he had been misquoted by the paper and that he had used the word 'hit' not 'eat'. Kouchner, however, confirmed that he did 'indeed evoke the possibility of israeli strikes to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon'. Kouchner's remarks are in line with French President Nicolas Sarkozy warning in early September that the pursuance of a nuclear program by Iran could lead to an israel-waged war on the country. "We could find one morning that israel has struck (Iran)," the French president said, adding that no one would question the legitimacy of such an act of aggression. Iran says its nuclear activities are directed at the civilian application of the technology, such as generating electricity for its growing population. During his late September visit to New York, the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that 'the era of nuclear bombs has ended', stressing that weapons of mass destruction have no place on Iran's defensive doctrine. israel, meanwhile, is widely believed to have acquired some 200-300 nuclear warheads. Former US president Jimmy Carter confirmed in late May that israel is the possessor of the sole nuclear arsenal in the Middle East. Iran, the Arab League and the one-hundred-eighteen Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) members, sought to put the dossier of 'israel's nuclear capabilities' on the agenda of the annual UN nuclear watchdog meeting in Vienna. In a vote on Saturday, israel - backed by the US and EU - managed to evade a link between its nuclear program to nuclear proliferation in the Middle East.
  24. Israel Plans Iran Strike

    Zionists and Zionist supporters are highly hypocritical for inventing absurd fairy tales such as the non-existent WMDs as a Zionist pretext to attack, destroy, invade and occupy Iraq and terrorize and massacre innocent Iraqi people while the israeli regime of terror has so many WMDs including the nuclear weapons. Therefore, the UN, the US regime, the UK regime, the israeli regime of terror etc are being governed, controlled and manipulated by the most disgusting hypocrites who are supported by the most disgusting Zionist supporters. The hypocrisy of the UN, the US regime, the UK regime, the israeli regime of terror etc makes the world a dangerous place to live in.
  25. Use Of 'sticky Ieds' Rising In Iraq

    israeli Snipers Killing US troops in Iraq Source: Joanna Francis and CNN 11-11-6 Anderson Cooper of CNN showed this video of snipers killing U.S. troops in Iraq on his October 18, 2006 show. CNN says it obtained the video from a "representative" of an unnamed "insurgent leader." Bear in mind that Anderson Cooper used to work for the CIA. Richard Wilson's hypothesis: israeli soldiers and/or Mossad agents are killing our soldiers in Iraq in order to enrage American troops so that the slaughter continues. Proof: At the very beginning of this video clip, you see a rifle with a video camera attached to it. This weapon is made by the Rafael company, an israeli arms manufacturer, that also makes IEDs. If you watch the video all the way through, it explains how this rifle works. CNN stated that the camera used to film these shootings was not a mounted rifle camera. But as you watch the video, you see that with each shot fired, the camera recoils. That would only happen if it were mounted on the rifle. Why is this significant? Because this kind of rifle-camera is extremely sophisticated and not available to your average Iraqi insurgent. I mean, it's not exactly an easily obtainable Saturday night special! Something this sophisticated points to Mossad. Mossad is a master at false flag operations, e.g., Oklahoma City, the attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, the bombing of the israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires, the July 7, 2005 London bombings, the 9-11 attacks in New York, the assassination of the Prime Minister in Beirut, the stoking of Muslim riots in France last year, the bombing of the Hassan al-Askari Masjid in Samarra, Iraq, etc. israelis freely move among US and UK troops in Iraq, and have access to top-level US intelligence. Until July 2003, the head of all US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan was General Tommy Franks, a Zionist israeli. (He is now on the board of directors for Bank of America.) On November 7, 2006 another Zionist israeli became a principle liaison between Mossad and US forces in Iraq: Major General Richard F. Natonski of the Marine Corps. His title is Deputy Commandant for Plans, Policies and Operations. Because of this access, the "insurgents" (i.e., Mossad agents) know exactly where US vehicles will be and who will be inside them. This allows them to target for maximum false flag effect. For example, on July 23, 2005, a detachment of 19 female US Marines was sent to Fallujah to check Iraqi women for bombs. An IED blew up their truck. Two of the young American women were killed, five were critically wounded, and four were captured. The bodies of the four captured women turned up later in a garbage dump with their throats cut. Americans were outraged. Islamic clerics insisted that only israelis could be so cold-blooded. And who was in charge of US forces in Fallujah at the time? None other than Major General Natonski, the Mossad liaison. Americans are supposed to believe that rag-tag "insurgents" use IEDs powerful enough to kill three US troops per day, on average. An American soldier even set up a blog on how "Intel" is betraying and targeting US troops. But sometimes Mossad bomb-makers accidentally blow themselves up in Iraq. According to Richard Wilson, israeli sniping and IEDs are false flag operations. He says that on March 28, 2005, Americans arrested 19 Mossad agents who fired twice on a US Marine checkpoint. The Marines beat up the Mossad agents and tore off their Star-of-David necklaces. (The US media incorrectly said the agents were Americans.) The Mossad agents said they were employees of Zapata Engineering, which helps the CIA conduct interrogations, and also manages US ammo dumps and US motor pools in Iraq. IEDs in Iraq are powerful enough to flip over a 70-ton tank. Some of the models shoot depleted-uranium projectiles, and are triggered by electronic devices surreptitiously planted on US armored vehicles. Zapata Engineering (which employs Mossad agents) makes this exact kind of trigger, and oversees some of the US motor pools. Rumsfeld says the IEDs come from Iran, but Richard says they come from Mossad, and are not "improvised" at all. The israeli company, Rafael (see above), makes IEDS, which are buried in the middle of a road. Beside the road is a device which emits a laser or radio signal. This device is manufactured by firms like Zapata Engineering, which is controlled by Zionist israelis. The IED mine, manufactured by israel, is inert until a US vehicle (secretly planted with a triggering device) rolls over it. Whenever Mossad carries out these false-flag operations they produce a videotape or a recording from an "unnamed source" that is "close to al-Qaeda." Sometimes they say "the claim was posted on an Internet website, but its authenticity could not be verified." But israelis would never kill anyone in cold blood, would they? After all, the USS Liberty massacre was "an accident!"
