International conference on Syria in Geneva on June 30 on certain terms

MOSCOW. June 15 (Interfax) – Russia could take part in an international conference on Syria in Geneva on June 30 on certain terms, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

It could, if the conference brings together the right participants and if it centers on ways to facilitate political dialogue instead of predetermining Syria’s future political set-up, he said at a press conference in Moscow on Friday.

“If these two conditions are observed we will attend the conference by all means. But our interests must be observed, because they are not egoistic interests, but a committed position,” Lavrov said.

US Fighting On  Same Side As Three Terrorist In Syria

U.S.Fights Side-By-Side With Three Terrorist Groups InSyria

Al Qaeda is supporting the Syrian opposition.

So is the Muslim Brotherhood.

And Hamas.

This is curious, given that the U.S. is supporting the Syrian opposition (and see this), considering military options for ousting the Syrian government, American allies Britain and Qatar allegedly already have foreign troops inside Syria, and the U.S. has been planning regime change in Syria for over 50 years.

I thought Al Qaeda, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood were America’s mortal enemies. Why are we backing terrorists?

If Hezbollah joins the opposition, it will be a clean sweep.

Actually, according to their covenant, Hamas is one of the wings of Moslem Brotherhood in Palestine. Just as CAIR, ISNA, MSA, etc. are wings of the U.S. Brotherhood. Hizbollah is not too popular among Syrians right now, but you can fund America’s terrorist “allies” online no problem.

LOL: Saudi Arabia to Lead UN Counter Terrorism Initiative

If the UN were to form an anti-terrorism group dedicated to attacking the menace on a global scale, who do you think would be asked to lead it? A nation with a proven track record of anti-terror initiatives? A nation that esteems human rights and freedomsabove all else? Unfortunately, in the case of the UN Centre for Counter Terrorism (UNCCT), the answer is emphatically neither.

The UNCCT was formed in September 2010 with the purpose of executing the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, adopted by the General Assembly in 2006. In a move more befitting Alice in Wonderland than the United Nations, Saudi Arabia was named chair of the organization.

The Resolution that created the UNCCT highlighted four key “pillars” in the fight against terrorism. The first of these pillars, “tackling the conditions conducive to the spread of terrorism,” was undermined almost immediately upon the organization’s establishment. Three months after the UNCCT’s formation, WikiLeaks exposed a trove of diplomatic cables in which Secretary of State Hilary Clinton wrote “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qa’ida, the Taliban, LeT, and other terrorist groups, including Hamas.” Clinton’s US embassy cables also revealed Saudi resistance to prioritizing the issue in terms of its own domestic policy.

These revelations are perhaps not so surprising in light of the Saudi kingdom’s lukewarm response to terrorism funding and recruitment within its borders. Remember when, in the months following the 9/11 attacks, Saudi Arabia denied the fact that 15 out of the 19 hijackers were Saudi citizens, before eventually confirming the undeniable truth in 2002? Even worse, this past February two former US senators involved in the 9/11 inquiries suggested in separate affidavits that the Saudi government may have played a direct role in the attacks themselves.

It’s an ironic twist that the UN appointed Saudi Arabia, a country historically labeled by groups like the CATO Institute as a state sponsor of terrorism, to chair the flagship effort to end such practices. The UN’s actions speak to a certain cluelessness it exhibits as a governing body: the organization bows to diplomatic and political courtesies while ignoring what’s happening on the ground.

The designation is also farcical in another sense. Saudi Arabia’s human rights record blatantly contradicts the UNCCT’s fourth pillar, “ensuring respect for human rights against the backdrop of the fight against terrorism,” as evidenced by the nation’s treatment of its own citizens. Amnesty International’s 2012 Report details the state’s numerous abuses: public demonstration is forbidden, females face harshly oppressive discrimination in both the law and society, citizens are subject to torture and confinement for excessive periods of time without due process of law, etc. And the Amnesty International report is not even comprehensive. For example: it fails to mention LGBT rights or the fact that homosexuality in the Saudi kingdom is a capital offense.

Moreover, Saudi Arabia’s state-sponsored curriculum continues to foster a learning environment of intolerance and discrimination. As detailed in the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom’s recently published report, the Saudi Kingdom’s academic curriculum for grades 1-12 contains textbooks that disparage Christianity and Judaism and tutors on the subject of jihad and war against nonbelievers. In 2010, a special investigation by the BBC’s Panorama discovered that part-time schools “teaching the official Saudi national curriculum” in the United Kingdom were imparting messages of anti-Semitism and homophobia to young Muslim students, as well as illustrating how to punish thieves by cutting off the criminal’s hand or foot.

It is no secret that Saudi Arabia holds a strong anti-democracy stance, as exemplified in March 2011 when the kingdom sent troops into Bahrain to help repress protests during a government crackdown. Freedom of expression is nearly non-existent; a draft of the nation’s own anti-terror law leaked in July 2011 would suppress free speech and could punish blasphemy with death.

The greatest irony of all is the UN’s failure to come up with a legal definition for the act of terrorism while purporting to fight it with projects like the UNCCT. While the Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism has been in the works since 2000, the UN General Assembly Sixth Committee (Legal) has reached an impasse in negotiations. The result is that the UNCCT exists without any clear international definition the word “terrorism.”

The standoff is the outcome of maneuvering by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), a 57-member voting bloc that represents itself as the “collective voice of the Muslim world.” The group refuses passage of any Sixth Committee Resolution defining terrorism unless it exempts certain kinds of conflicts, such as “armed struggle against foreign occupation.” This means that, according to the OIC, attacks on civilians would not constitute terrorism as long as they were citizens of a so-called “occupying power.” This is obviously unacceptable.

The UN must first facilitate a consensus between states on the definition of terrorism if it is to effectively combat the threat. Furthermore, it’s incumbent upon all Western democracies and especially the Obama administration to lobby for the removal of Saudi Arabia from the UNCCT. The UN needs to stop playing political games when human lives are thrown into the mix; terrorist groups will continue to survive as long as there are nations that remain lax on enforcement and bodies like the UN that reward complacency. Only an international campaign that possesses both legitimacy and resolve has the potential to eradicate — or at least suppress — terrorism.By Brooke Goldstein and Zack Kousnetz

Russia, US Nearing Proxy War in Syria


 At worst one has to wonder how much Communism is still an influence in the Russian government. At least one has to wonder if Russian expansionism in the increasing aiding of rogue nations or anti-American nations.

 At any rate the civil war in Syria is beginning more and more to look like an old fashioned Cold War between the U.S. of A. and Russia. INN has the details.


PHONING THE U.N. AT “522666”

UNICEF RIGHT, right ?!

Now it appears that no child is left behind in Gaza, where kindergarteners recently held a jihad-promoting graduation ceremony replete with camouflage make-up, fatigues, fake machine guns and a kiddie version of water-boarding. Ynet News translates from Islamic Jihad’s website which posted the photos:

“It is our obligation to educate the children to love the resistance, Palestine and Jerusalem, so they will recognize the importance of Palestine and who its enemy is,” the kindergarten’s director said.

The children were dressed up in uniforms of Jihad’s armed-wing, the al-Quds Brigades, and each of them received a toy rifle […]

One child, Hamza, said “When I grow up I’ll join Islamic Jihad and the al-Quds Brigades. I’ll fight the Zionist enemy and fire missiles at it until I die as a shahid [martyr] and join my father in heaven.

“I love the resistance and the martyrs and Palestine, and I want to blow myself up on Zionists and kill them on a bus in a suicide bombing,” he said.

Here are some of the photos, captured by the pro-Israel bloggers Challah Hu Akbar and Elder of Ziyon:Ynet translates one teacher who said:

“At every kindergarten graduation ceremony we focus on the children to represent the role of struggling and resistance in the way of Allah so they will grow up to love the resistance and serve the cause of Palestine and Holy Jihad, as well as to make them leaders and fighters to defend the holy soil of Palestine.”

In an op-ed in Ynet News, Yigal Walt criticizes so-called terrorism experts who promote the theory that it’s economic hardship or political repression that prompts youths to turn to terror and carry out “desperate acts.” He writes:

The simple and sad truth is that terrorism is an “acquired taste” and affinity for terror is a value that one must nurture and impart. Just as many families and states worldwide educate their children and people in line with the value of tolerance, for example, other people and nations prefer to encourage their sons and daughters to choose the path of murder and terror. Indeed, after long years of such “education” in kindergartens, schools, on television and in prayer houses, there is no wonder that many members of these peoples take the path of terror and turn this murderousness into a prevalent way of life.

Some of the children’s relatives are themselves members of Islamic Jihad and other armed Palestinian groups, now educating them to follow in their violent footsteps.

Suicide terrorists are “greatest role models,” says EU-funded NGO for youth on PA TV

Last week, Israel transferred the bodies of 91 terrorists including numerous suicide bombers to the Palestinian Authority. A PA TV program for youth, Speak Up, glorified the 91 terrorists saying they were:

“More honored than all of us… They are the greatest role models for us.”  The TV program is co-produced by PA TV and PYALARA, an NGO for youth funded by the EU, Save the Children and other international donors.

The following is the statement on PA TV honoring the terrorists:

PA TV Host: “Unfortunately, we couldn’t part from them (i.e., the terrorists) or even embrace them, but were satisfied standing before their bodies, standing up before their sanctified message: The homeland won’t die, but we will die for it.”
Co-Host: “These [Martyrs] are more honored than all of us… They are the greatest role models for us, not only because they fought and struggled for the homeland, but also because they went beyond the sacrifice [of] strain and effort, to the stage where they actually sacrificed their lives for the homeland.”
[PA TV (Fatah), June 3, 2012]Palestinian Media Watch reported that the PA leadership participated in a national funeral treating these 91 terrorists as heroes and Islamic Martyrs. At the funeral, suicide bombers and other terrorists were presented as role models for others to “follow in their path.”

This is the second time in a few weeks that EU-funded PYALARA has chosen to glorify terrorists. In May, PYALARA, on its other PA TV program Jerusalem Scenes, honored Palestinian terrorist prisoners serving multiple life sentences for planning suicide bombings that murdered many Israelis. The TV crew visited the homes and interviewed family members of three terrorists of the “Silwan cell,” which was responsible for terror attacks in 2002, including:

– Hebrew University cafeteria, 9 killed
– Cafe Moment in Jerusalem, 11 killed
– Sheffield Club in Rishon LeZion,15 killed

The terrorists of the “Silwan cell” whose homes were visited by PA TV and PYALARA:
1. Wisam Al-Abbasi, sentenced to 26 life sentences and another 40 years
2. Muhammad Ouda, sentenced to 9 life sentences and another 40 years
3. Alaa Al-Din Al-Abbasi, sentenced to 60 years

The mother of the terrorist Wisam Al-Abbasi who is serving 26 life-sentences said on TV:
“I am proud and pride myself on having a son in prison.”

The father-in-law of terrorist Alaa Al-Abbasi who is serving 60 years told the PYALARA interviewer:

“I always remember Alaa – a person of exalted moral values.”

The following is the transcript of the PA TV’s visit to the homes of terrorist prisoners on the program Jerusalem Scenes, produced jointly by PYALARA and PA TV:

PA TV host: “More than 250 prisoners from Jerusalem are held in the occupation’s prisons, most of them on a hunger strike. It is our duty to visit the families of some of the prisoners, to hear from them and to see how they encourage their children to continue in the path of their struggle against the Israeli occupation.
The first prisoner from Silwan, Jerusalem, whom we wish to visit is Wisam Al-Abbasi, who was given 26 life sentences and another 40 years. In other words, in total he is meant to serve 2,614 years in the occupation’s prisons.”
In the home of prisoner Wisam Al-Abbasi:
Host: “Hello, how are you?”
Mother: “I’m the mother of prisoner Wisam Al-Abbasi, who was given 26 life sentences and another 40 years. I am proud and pride myself on having a son in prison.”
In the home of prisoner Muhammad Ouda:
Host: “We are visiting now the home of another prisoner from Jerusalem, Muhammad Ouda. Ouda has been imprisoned in the occupation’s prisons for more than 10 years, and was sentenced to 9 life sentences and another 40 years.”
In the home of prisoner Alaa Al-Din Al-Abbasi:
Wife: “He was sentenced to 60 years. We were told [he was one of] the four men of the Silwan cell.”
Father-in-law: “I always remember Alaa – a person of exalted moral values.”
[PA TV (Fatah), May 18, 2012]PYALARA and Speak Up []

PYALARA’s website lists the following as sponsors:


The TV host telling youth to view terrorists and suicide bombers as “role models” corresponds with PYALARA’sagenda, as its website states that creating “role models” is one of the important purposes of its TV program:

“The greatest success of [the youth program] Speak Up [Arabic- “Alli Sotak”] comes from its peer-to-peer approach, in which young people act as role models and reach out to their own peers through their active role in reporting…”

For names and description of the suicide bombers honored among the 91 terrorists see PMW’s recent bulletin.

 What is the Mission Statement of the United Nations?
