Netanyahu's Speech To Congress Is Full of Fantasies, Shamefully Uses Memory of Holocaust To Prevent Peace Between America and Iran

Netanyahu's problem is the Palestinian question. His solution is to distract the world by drumming up fear about Iran's peaceful nuclear program. 

"But Iran's regime is not merely a Jewish problem, any more than the Nazi regime was merely a Jewish problem. The 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis were but a fraction of the 60 million people killed in World War II. So, too, Iran's regime poses a grave threat, not only to Israel, but also the peace of the entire world. To understand just how dangerous Iran would be with nuclear weapons, we must fully understand the nature of the regime.
. . .
I'm standing here in Washington, D.C. and the difference is so stark. America's founding document promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Iran's founding document pledges death, tyranny, and the pursuit of jihad. And as states are collapsing across the Middle East, Iran is charging into the void to do just that." - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Congress on March 3, 2015. Source: Washington Post.

Obama Responds to Netanyahu's Speech to Congress | The New York Times

People thought Netanyahu reached peak stupidity a couple of years ago at the U.N when he showed off his cartoon bomb, but this man tops himself every year. Will he drum up an excuse and attack Iran without America's blessing to ruin a deal? Maybe.

Big Brother Comes To Pakistan

An excerpt from, "Pakistan Anti-Terror Laws Force 100M Cellphone Users To Be Fingerprinted" NBC News, February 24, 2015:
New anti-terror laws will see 100 million cellphone users in Pakistan forced to submit their fingerprints to a national database or get cut off from the network. 
The measures were imposed in response to the Taliban's recent school massacre in Peshawar and will see every cell user in the country compelled to link their SIM card to their fingerprint by April 12 or face disconnection. 
"The Peshawar attackers were communicating [via cellphone] with their handlers across the border in Afghanistan," a security official told NBC News on Tuesday on condition of anonymity. "We have to take those advantages away from them."
This is a tyrannical, stupid, and wasteful overreaction by the Pakistani government to a problem that it itself created over a period of decades.

On the one side they're backing terrorists, and on the other side they're forcing citizens to give their fingerprints in order to tackle the problem posed by those very same terrorists. It is a great scam. And it looks like the leaders of Pakistan and America are reading from the same manual. They have their chips on the same poker table, going all in.

And it's not just Pakistani and American leaders who are scamming their people in the war on terror. The anti-terror industry is a growth industry across the world. Militaristic governments like those in Pakistan and Egypt know where their bread is buttered. The protection racket is the oldest racket known to man.

The more Peshawar attacks the better for the Pakistani military. The more attacks on Egyptian citizens in Libya the better for the Egyptian military. People have speculated that the Egyptian military could have saved the Egyptian hostages in Libya but let them get killed by ISIS in order to build public support and international opinion for military action in Libya.

The heads of states and the military leaders of both Pakistan and Egypt could come out tomorrow morning on television and tell their people that the war on terror is a giant fraud, that terrorism is generated as much by the covert actions of deep states and secret intelligence agencies as it is by issues like poverty or religion, but they won't.

General Sisi of Egypt has said nothing about 9/11 and other false flags that make groups like ISIS to appear larger than they really are. Instead he has criticized the religion of Islam and says there must be reformation. Calls for reformation are always good, but, at the end of the day, ISIS and other terrorist groups will never be eliminated as long as the false flag specialists commit crimes in their name and expand their fame.

As long as dictators in the Middle East and their friends in America, the West, and Israel profit from the fraudulent global security paradigm that has grown out of events like 9/11 then they'll keep their mouths shut and continue to scam their countries.

Pope denounces "intolerable brutality" in Iraq and Syria + Assyrians in Syria pray for the release of abducted fellow Christians

Christian Zionists in the West, especially in America, support the government of Israel blindly. The government of Israel supports Al-Qaeda, ISIS, and Al-Nusra on multiple battlefronts, in the international media by raising their profile through false flag attacks as well as on the battlefields of Syria. ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and Al-Nusra are massacring, executing, and kidnapping Christians in Iraq, Syria, Libya, and across the Middle East.

So you could make the argument that Christian Zionists and the government of Israel are wiping out the Christians of Syria and Iraq, who have done them no harm. And if they're not wiping them out deliberately, they're at the very least sacrificing them for geopolitical purposes, which amounts to the same thing.

What is Pope Francis saying about this? Nothing. He welcomed Netanyahu to the Vatican.

Pakistan: Taliban set their sights on police; Egypt goes to war on ISIS

ISIS's brutalities and conquests in Syria, Iraq, and Libya have received the world's attention for good reasons, but it's where they're headed next that should concern us even more. Saudi Arabia is their ultimate destination, but they also have their sights on Egypt and Pakistan. Saudi Arabia has always been a strong ally of Egypt and Pakistan, so if ISIS takes Mecca and Medina, what will the rulers of Egypt and Pakistan do?

What happens in Syria, Iraq, and Libya is not as nearly as important as what happens in Egypt and Pakistan. Egypt is half the Arab world, and Pakistan has nuclear weapons. They're both ruled by corrupt military regimes so Islamists have an easy time in the propaganda war against them. Plus, in the case of Pakistan, many lower rank soldiers sympathize with the Taliban, so anything could happen in the future. A failed state in Libya is manageable, but a failed state in Pakistan is not.

The Taliban and ISIS will grind away at the Egyptian and Pakistani states, and continue to drain their resources. Pakistan is dependent on U.S. aid, so it is fragile and vulnerable to any economic shock or shift of direction in Washington. And Egypt has to beg Gulf princes just to pay salaries to its officials so it is not strong enough to wage a war against Islamist insurgents indefinitely. Whether or not there will be disastrous consequences depends on the response of the Egyptian and Pakistani rulers. Do they have enough vision and wisdom to win this war? Most likely no.

Sisi looks like a smart ruler, and he says good things, but he is not a spiritual leader so he will prove inconsequential in the war against ISIS, which is making religious claims and has to be countered religiously.

The person with belief who is fighting for an idea always beats the person who is only fighting for a salary and is only there because he can't find a job outside of the army. ISIS proved this in Mosul and other areas of Iraq, where corrupt officers of the Iraqi army ditched the fight in the middle of the night. It was the PKK who rescued hostages on Mt. Sinjar, and it was Shiite militias who came to the aid of the capital Baghdad. The Iraqi army was not a factor.

The Taliban and ISIS also have a clear advantage over the Egyptian and Pakistani police and military in the ideological field. They are fighting for a big idea. They have a transnational and religious vision. They get recruits from all over the world. They can point to the military leaders of Egypt and Pakistan and say that they have been backed by the United States for decades and question their allegiance to Islam. Egyptian and Pakistani rulers have no response to this.


An excerpt from, "Egypt goes to war on ISIS, masses troops against Islamist Libyan stronghold at Darnah" DEBKAfile, February 28, 2015:
Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi has deployed his troops for all-out war on ISIS strongholds in Libya, the first Arab ruler to challenge the Islamists in a fellow Arab country, DEBKAfile’s military sources report. 
His intiative dramatizes the spillover of the Islamist State’s threat across the Middle East, and the fading impetus of the US-led coalition effort to reverse Islamic State gains in Iraq and Syria.
