Citizens in Mosul cheer tonight, as the Iraqi city of Ramadi fell to ISIS.
Shia militias are about to enter the city to fight alongside Sunni tribesmen.
Where exactly is this fabled 60 country “anti-ISIS coalition” that Cameron and Kerry are always spouting off about?
…and why exactly do “accidental” bombings of Iraqi forces by the Americans keep occurring?
It’s becoming clearer by the minute that while Syrians and Iraqis fight for their lives, the coalition (which doesn’t include Syria or Iran) are actively aiding and abetting this despicable wholesale slaughter of two sovereign nations. All in order to partition the Middle East into numerous tiny little fiefdoms in the name of Wahhabism and the Greater Israel project.
On so-called “Jerusalem Day” today – an annual event held to celebrate the occupying of the city – extremist Israeli settlers marched through the streets chanting slogans such as: ‘Death to Arabs’ and ‘Mohammed is Dead’. They also distributed flyers calling for the destruction of the Al-Aqsa Mosque – Islam’s 3rd holiest site. A Jordanian TV crew were attacked and chased through the streets by these colonialist terrorists.
Update – a female correspondent for RT Arabic was assaulted by Israeli police. From RT;
Dalia Nammari and the cameraman Muhammad Aishu were filming the march of settlers, which they had been accredited to, when the police interfered with their work and took away the camera. The crew continued to report from the scene using a smart phone and going on air live via Skype, when the police attacked them again.
Last year, Israeli forces raided a building in Ramallah where the offices of several media outlets, including RT’s Arabic channel, were located. The troops broke down the doors of the offices, destroyed some of the equipment and confiscated records.
During last year’s siege of Gaza, Israeli forces killed a total of 18 journalists.
Two weekends ago, as the annual AIPAC conference took place, Orthodox Jews in New York, Washington and Jerusalem protested against the Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s presence in the US. Prior to his “controversial” speech to Congress (in which he would claim that a nuclear deal with Iran would pose an existential threat to his country) Netanyahu declared that he would go to Washington as he went to Paris: to speak for all Jews.
The audacity of such a statement was all the more astonishing when taking into consideration the fact that President Hollande had specifically asked the Israeli PM not to attend the march in Paris.
There’s not much to say about Bibi’s speech itself – I think anyone familiar with the man can guess what he had to say – but the resulting protests did give the world this amusing slogan:
Which – whether deliberately or not – was a delightful play upon one of Likud’s current election campaign ads…
