Syrian militants carry their weapons as they walk along a street in the town of Morek in Hama province, April 9, 2014.

The US and Saudi Arabia have provided Syria's Western and Arab-backed militants with American antitank missiles as part of an ongoing campaign to provide the militants with heavy weaponry, according to a new report.


The delivery of the TOW anti-tank guided missiles began in March and is part of a pilot program that could lead to larger flows of sophisticated weaponry, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing people briefed on the effort.

Some of the TOWs provided to militants are equipped with a complex, fingerprint-keyed security device that controls who can fire it, said Mustafa Alani, a senior security analyst at the Geneva-based [Persian] Gulf Research Center who has ties with Saudi security officials.

A newly-created militant group called Harakat Hazm said it had received about a dozen BGM-71 TOWs and was being trained on how to operate them. Earlier in April, Israel's Debkafile website reported that two Syrian militant groups have been supplied with anti-tank missiles.

Pro-paedophile group to be banned, Dutch supreme court says

Marthijn Uitenboogaard of "Vereniging Martijn," a Dutch association that advocates the legalization of sexual relationships between adults and children.
The pro-paedophilia organisation Martijn should be banned, the Dutch supreme court ruled on Friday, marking the end of a legal battle which began in 2011.

The court's decision is in line with recommendations made by the advocate general in March. He said the organisation should be banned because the protection of children should weigh more heavily than freedom of expression.

The Martijn Foundation campaigns for the legalisation of sexual contact between adults and children and has been the subject of a convoluted legal battle for years.

Hypocrisy: French president Hollande relieved that 4 French journalists kidnapped in Syria by terrorists supported and armed by Hollande are freed

Four French journalists kidnapped by al-Qaeda-linked militants in Syria have been released, President Francois Hollande says.


The French President made the announcement on Saturday, saying he had "learned with great relief this morning of the liberation of the four French journalists."

Edouard Elias, Didier Francois, Nicolas Henin and Pierre Torres had been held captive in Syria since 2013.

The four were reportedly found blindfolded with their hands bound in Sanliurfa Province on the border with Syria.The four French journalists were found by Turkish soldiers.

Francois, a correspondent for Europe 1 radio, and Elias, a photographer, were kidnapped in early June near the northern town of Aleppo. Henin, a journalist for Le Point magazine, and Torres, reporter for Arte television channel, were abducted later in June near Raqqa, about 160 km east of Aleppo.

Earlier reports said the four had been abducted by militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

The foreign-backed militants operating in Syria have kidnapped several journalists since the beginning of the violence in the country in March 2011.

Comment: The French President has no shame as he and his foreign minister Laurent Fabius are welcoming home the French journalists after these journalists have indured 10 months in captivity by the thugs and terrorists that the very same French government leaders are supporting and arming.

The terrorists that the West supports are good enough to not kill the journalists that come from Western countries and only to kill the journalists that come from countries who are against supporting terrorists in Syria.The Western journalists are just kidnapped and released routinely upon receival of more weapons and funding.

Senator Harry Reid: Using federal violence to feather his nest

This piece of *#$@ belongs in jail

It's very simple.

Harry Reid, Senator from Nevada, is using federal violence to take people's land in his state so he can package it to re-sell it to the Chinese.

That's what the Bundy Ranch deal is all about.

Amazing isn't it?

And this thieving, lying sack of shit has the gall to threaten the Bundy family with retaliation for not being willing to hand their property over to him.

Who is really behind Jews being told to register in Ukrainian province?

Jews Ukraine Donetsk

Part of the notice as distributed on Twitter.
A report by the Israel's Ynet News, that has been widely circulated, claims that leaflets are being handed out in the eastern Ukrainian province of Donetsk, demanding Jews register, pay a $50 registration fee, and provide a list of property they own or face revocation of citizenship, deportation, and asset seizure.

Ynet has reported that that these documents carried the signature of Denis Pushilin, chairman of Donetsk's interim pro-Russian government. Pushilin, as reported in The Times of Israel, has denied any connection to the leaflet's content, labeling them as a forgery and provocation designed to discredit the protest movement.

The region has defied the central Ukrainian government and has been declared by pro-Russian activists as a "people's republic" disregarding an ultimatum from Kiev to surrender. Donetsk is a Ukraine province of about 4.3 million people and holds close to 10 percent of Ukraine's population. Roughly 17,000 Jews live in this province and it is home to much of the country's heavy industry. This makes it one of the most important prizes in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian activists have captured a number of government buildings over the past week.

Attack, referendum plans overshadow Ukraine talks

© CBS
Diplomats meeting for emergency talks on the crisis in Ukraine issued a joint statement Thursday aimed at de-escalating the tensions and ensuring the security of all Ukrainians.

The statement -- which appears to be the biggest step toward calming the situation in days -- followed talks lasting several hours between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, his acting Ukrainian counterpart, Andriy Deshchytsia, and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.

The pact calls for all illegal armed groups to be disarmed, all illegally seized buildings to be returned to their legitimate owners and all occupied public spaces to be vacated. It promises amnesty for protesters who leave buildings and give up their weapons, apart from those convicted of capital crimes.

Congressional candidate demonstrates how to shoot down a 'government drone'

© Matt Rosedale
As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens."

Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot.

"The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I'm ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says.

Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana's at-large seat in the House.

'Culture of intimidation' seen in Nevada ranch standoff

Critics say fight isn't first instance of feds' 'overkill'

Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it's not inconsistent with the federal government's recent approach to environmental enforcement.

The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee.

That doesn't include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure permit holders to transfer their water rights as a condition of renewal, said Ryan Yates, director of congressional relations for the American Farm Bureau.

American children could be terrorists, Obama adviser warns

Monaco - Obama

President Barack Obama receives a briefing on the Washington Navy Yard shootings from Lisa Monaco, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, in the Oval Office, Sept. 16, 2013.
White House Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser Lisa Monaco has suggested that confrontational behavior in American children can turn them into terrorists.

"Parents might see sudden personality changes in their children at home - becoming confrontational," Monaco said during a speech at the Harvard Kennedy School Forum earlier this week.

"Religious leaders might notice unexpected clashes over ideological differences. Teachers might hear a student expressing an interest in traveling to a conflict zone overseas. Or friends might notice a new interest in watching or sharing violent material," she added.

"The government is rarely in position to observe these early signals, so we need to do more to help communities understand the warning signs, and then work together to intervene before an incident can occur," President Barack Obama's adviser warned.

According to Infowars.com, the US government has broadened its definition of what constitutes potential terrorism to such a degree that the term has lost all meaning and is clearly being used as a political tool to demonize adversarial political activism.

"President Obama has been laser-focused on making sure we use all the elements of our national power to protect Americans, including developing the first government-wide strategy to prevent violent extremism in the United States," Monaco said. "At the same time, we recognize that there are limits to what the federal government can do."

The counterterrorism chief also urged local communities to share some responsibility in awareness of possible terrorist threats within the United States.

On Nazis, Jews & Ukraine 'de-escalation'

Meeting

European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton (in red) smiles at the start of a quadrilateral meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry (3rd L) and Ukraine's Foreign Minister Andrii Deshchytsia (3rd R) in Geneva, as representatives of the U.S., Ukraine, Russia and the European Union about the ongoing situation in Ukraine, April 17, 2014.
There are many potentially worrying signs in the 'de-escalation' process in theory agreed by the US, Russia, EU and Ukraine this Thursday in Geneva.

For starters; the regime changers in power in Kiev did not commit themselves, explicitly, to constitutional reform (the draft language is slippery, to say the least); they did not commit, explicitly, to leaving Ukraine out of NATO; and a minor but still significant point - this was not a joint press conference by the two key players, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Arguably, the US State Department is bound to interpret 'de-escalation' as a sort of ultimatum to every anti-fascist, pro-autonomy and pro-Russia group in eastern Ukraine, as in 'disarm or else'. That's the same logic behind the nefarious March 2011 UN approval of a no-fly zone over Libya.

By negotiating directly with the Kiev regime changers in Geneva, Moscow in fact took a step back - recognizing them as a legitimate government (until then that was an absolute no-no.) Moscow also implicitly recognized groups in eastern Ukraine - be they independent-ist, pro-autonomy or pro-Russia - as the only ones to be disarmed (what about Nazi-style or neo-fascists groups in western Ukraine?)

And the key problem; there's no way to verify for sure the neutrality of OSCE peace missions, which can be easily infiltrated by Western intelligence and even facilitate the weaponizing of neo-fascist, pro-Kiev outfits.
