Iraqi volunteer forces, Hashid Shaabi, found Israeli-made weapons in a position of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorists in Anbar province on Thursday.

According to Al-Mayadeen television, the Iraqi volunteer forces found Israeli-made weapons in an ISIL position in al-Karmah city in Anbar province.

The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.

Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.

Comment: The Iraqis know what's really going on, and their politicians regularly tell the truth about the origins of ISIS. Good luck hearing ANY of it on CNN, NBC, FOX, whatever. See also:

Putin pushes to increase domestic food production quickly

Russian President Vladimir Putin has tasked the new Agriculture Minister Aleksandr Tkachyov with strengthening the sector and solving import substitution goal quickly. Western food imports have been banned following the US and EU anti-Russia sanctions.

The president has instructed new Agriculture Minister Tkachyov and his predecessor Nikolai Fyodorov, who has become a presidential aide, to work closely with the regions to develop the sector, focusing on import substitution.

"We need to fill our market with the products of our own domestic producers, and it should be done quickly in order to ease pressure on the food market, decrease prices, and so on," Putin said.

New Agriculture Minister Tkachyov has been the governor of Krasnodar Russia's key wheat-producing region since 2000. He took over from Fyodorov, who has been at the helm of the Agriculture Ministry since 2012.

Comment: More than just easing pressure on the food market and decreasing prices, this push by Putin to increase domestic food production could be seen as a strategic move to increase Russia's self-reliance in preparation for when the global economy tanks and those dependent on foreign food imports will starve. This kind of forward thinking could just save Russia from experiencing a total collapse after the US dollar implodes, and takes most of the developed world with it.

Ukrainian Armed Forces' officers use open communication lines to make contacts with the officers of self-defence forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, in the course of which they ask to open fire at the highly controversial Azov 'volunteer' battalions, Eduard Basurin, the spokesman for the DPR Defence Ministry said.

They accompany their requests by references to the battalion's total uncontrollability.

Comment: Interesting twist to events in Ukraine.

Holocaust vs. Paedophilia - in UK one matters more than the other

Allison Pearson wrote in The Telegraph two days ago, "As Oskar Groening, the so-called Accountant of Auschwitz, goes on trial at the age of 93 for his complicity in war crimes, the 86-year-old Labour peer Greville Janner is excused prosecution for 22 alleged sexual offences against nine boys in his Leicestershire constituency, from the 1960s to the 1980s, because he is suffering from 'severe dementia'."

Pearson is spot on. While Groening is merely a Goy and a German, Lord Janner is a Jew and not just an ordinary Jew, but a quite prominent one. From 1978 to 1984 Lord Janner was the chairman of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, an institution that claims to "represent British Jews." Lord Janner is also dominant in the field of holocaust education. He is clearly concerned with Jewish suffering but apparently dismissive of the shoah he is accused of inflicting on minor boys at the same time he represented British Jews.

Apparently there has been long and ongoing massive whitewash operation for Lord Janner, allowing him to conceal his alleged egregious sex crimes. The BBC revealed recently that as early as "1989 a detective sergeant was told not to arrest Mr Janner or search his home."

Unlike German elder Oskar Groening who stands trial for being an 'instrument in a mass murder,' whatever that means; Lord Greville Janner is not going to be arrested or charged. Lord Janner is free and he has not wasted his freedom. Apparently the elder Lord who suffers 'severe dementia,' has been active in transferring and concealing his wealth, presumably in case a few of his alleged victims decide they deserve compensation for the shoah he inflicted on them.

Comment: The elite protect their own. This scandal extends world-wide, but prosecuting all but the lowest ranking offenders is nigh on impossible.

Turkey has condemned the statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin calling the 1915 events in the Ottoman Empire genocide, the foreign ministry said on Friday.

"Despite our warnings and appeals, Russian President Vladimir Putin evaluated the events of 1915 as genocide," the statement says. "We do not accept it and condemn it. Such political statements that are a direct violation of law can have no legal effect."

Turkey's Foreign Ministry noted that "Russia should better know what genocide is like and what legal aspects it has."

"We know that once in ten years the [State] Duma [lower house of Russia's parliament] has a habit of making political statements which support Armenia's one-sided interests," it said. "Duma did not break this tradition and on April 24, 2015 issued a respective statement. We condemn it, too."

Comment: Good to hear Putin call the Armenian Genocide for what it is.

Deputies of the people's council of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) have unanimously adopted martial law Friday.

Military law is temporarily introduced on the territory of the republic or in separate areas in case of aggression against LPR or direct threat of aggression. "Aggression against LPR is defined as using military forces by a foreign country, or a group of countries, against the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of LPR or in any way incompatible with the UN Charter," the law stipulates.

Martial law can be introduced or cancelled by a decree issued by an LPR head.

"While military law is in force, rights and freedoms of civilians may be limited, along with activities of enterprises, institutions, organizations, rights of officials, to an extent deemed necessary for ensuring the country's defense capabilities and security," Lugansk Inform Center cited the law.

Comment: Must be expecting a new offensive from Kiev.

How NATO kills Africans in the Club Med

You all remember that NATO/AFRICOM coalition of the willing, "led" by King Sarko the First, then President of France, with US President Barack Obama "leading from behind" and a former Secretary of State, now presidential candidate with a campaign chest of $2.5 billion, coining a gloating "We came, we saw, he died".

Well, this fabulous collection of humanitarian imperialists is still on the loose, now killing — by proxy — across the waters of the Mediterranean, aka Club Med, aka Mare Nostrum, after they destroyed a viable state — Libya, a secular Arab republic — under the pretext of preventing a "genocide".

Boko Haram renamed 'Islamic State in West Africa'

Image
Boko Haram has reportedly taken a new name "Islamic State in West Africa" and published new pictures of its members.

Earlier, the group announced its loyalty with the notorious terrorist group "The Islamic State" (ISIL), responsible for violence and atrocities in Syria and Iraq.

ISIL supported the decision of Boko Haram and urged its members to extend their activities to West Africa.

Boko Haram has carried out numerous terrorist attacks on religious and political organizations as well as civilians. The group has killed more than 5,000 people since 2009.

Comment: Boko Haram will serve America the Islamic State well.

What is the truth about central bank gold holdings?

Image
There is little or no transparency in the way central banks report national gold reserves to the IMF.


Comment: If gold is such the "barbarous relic", why is there so much secrecy regarding its ownership and distribution among the world's countries and central banks?


China has 1,054.1 tonnes of gold in its official reserves. Yeah right! The USA has 8,133.5 tonnes in its reserves - the world's largest. But forgive me if I treat this figure, and those reported by some other central banks, with about as much skepticism as I treat the official Chinese figure. Much is made of the fact that China has not updated its official reserve figure since 2009 - but then the US has not updated its figure for nearly 40 years. Something similar applies to many other central banks which report identical gold volumes year in, year out.

Comment: It may be that the world's financial elite (and central banks) are well aware of the coming world financial reset and the important role that gold will play. This might explain secretive redistribution of the world's gold reserves.

Terrorism conveniently strikes Macedonia just as Russian 'Balkan Stream' project gains traction

© AFP 2015/ ROBERT ATANASOVSKI
At the exact same time that Greece has received a guarantee for billions of cubic meters' worth of Russian gas, Macedonia is being rocked by the threat of a renewed Albanian insurgency designed to offset Moscow's pipeline plans.

Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller announced that Russia will guarantee 47 billion cubic meters of gas a year to Greece via the Turkish Stream, which would then go onwards to supply the European market. While it's not yet specified exactly which path the pipeline will take from Greece to the EU, it's more than likely that it'll go through Macedonia en route to the former South Stream's envisioned Serbian hub, and thenceforth through Hungary, Austria, and beyond, just like Russia originally anticipated last year. There's one major obstacle to that strategy, however, and it's that the US is attempting to transform its failed Color Revolution in Macedonia into an Unconventional War to neutralize this geostrategic route, utilizing the specter of an Albanian terrorist campaign modeled off the Syrian template to achieve its destructive goals.

From Color Revolution to Unconventional War

In the years since the War on Yugoslavia, the US has perfected and patterned a novel method of regime change that proceeds according to pre-established escalation checkpoints. Washington first issues either a direct or implicit/covert ultimatum to the targeted government, the rejection of which serves as the 'dog whistle' for activating the dormant Color Revolution social infrastructure present in the country. Should that plan come to fail, then some of the associated destabilizing actors are transitioned into launching an Unconventional War. The final step, should that fail and a Great Power doesn't diplomatically intervene (as Russia did with Syria in September 2013), is to repeat the Libyan Scenario of a conventional intervention that leaves no doubt as to the success of its regime change odds.

Adapting this template for the Macedonian application, it can be seen how the country has thus far successfully repelled the Color Revolution attempt by Zoran Zaev, which in turn led to concrete Russian investment in the country's pipeline infrastructure that set the stage for the Putin-Tsipras agreement earlier this month. Now that the Balkan Stream pipeline plans are rapidly gaining traction, the US realized that it needs to act quickly to in order to sabotage them, hence the sudden reemergence of Albanian terrorism in Macedonia. While this problem was previously so serious as to push the country near civil war in 2001, it's generally subsided since then, with only a handful of extremists unhappy with the generous Ochrid Agreements that guaranteed the Albanian minority vast political and social rights. Nonetheless, that hasn't stopped the country of Albania, the US' regional Lead From Behind proxy, from threatening regional destabilization in order to create Greater Albania.

Comment: It should be obvious by now that many of the so-called democracy hating terrorists are nothing but foot soldiers of the Western Empire, conveniently popping up in places where their creators need them.
