• Twenty-six Things About the Islamic State (ISIS-ISIL-Daesh) That the U.S. Government Does Not Want You to Know About

    [This article was originally published by Global Research in November 2014.]

    Introductory Note

    In 2014 President Obama launched a “counterterrorism campaign” allegedly directed against the Islamic State (ISIS-Daesh). The operation consisted in providing a justification for the extensive bombing of Iraq and Syria, largely targeting residential areas and civilians.

    In turn, ISIS-Daesh was covertly supported and funded by the U.S. and its allies including Israel.

    Israel was directly involved in President Obama’s “counterterrorism” bombing raids directed against Syria, while also supporting Al Qaeda and ISIS mercenaries out of the Golan Heights.

    —Michel Chossudovsky, January 14, 2024


    Going after ” Islamic terrorists”, carrying out a worldwide pre-emptive war to “Protect the American Homeland” are used to justify a military agenda.

    The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is a creation of US intelligence. Washington’s “Counter-terrorism Agenda” in Iraq and Syria consists in Supporting the Terrorists.

    The incursion of the Islamic State (IS) brigades into Iraq starting in June 2014 was part of a carefully planned military-intelligence operation supported covertly by the US, NATO and Israel.

    The counter-terrorism mandate is a fiction. America is the Number One “State Sponsor of Terrorism.”

    The Islamic State is protected by the US and its allies. If they had wanted to eliminate the Islamic State brigades, they could have “carpet” bombed their convoys of Toyota pickup trucks when they crossed the desert from Syria into Iraq in June.

    The Syro-Arabian Desert is open territory (see map below). With state of the art jet fighter aircraft (F15, F22 Raptor, CF-18) it would have been — from a military standpoint — a rapid and expedient surgical operation.


    It could not have been undertaken without the unbending support of the Western media which has upheld Obama’s initiative as a counter-terrorism operation.

    Twenty Six Things

    A. The Historical Origins of Al Qaeda

    1. The US has supported Al Qaeda and its affiliated organizations for almost half a century since the heyday of the Soviet-Afghan war.

    2. CIA training camps were set up in Pakistan. In the ten year period from 1982 to 1992, some 35,000 jihadists from 43 Islamic countries were recruited by the CIA to fight in the Afghan jihad.

    “Advertisements, paid for from CIA funds, were placed in newspapers and newsletters around the world offering inducements and motivations to join the Jihad.”

    3. Since the Reagan Administration, Washington has supported the Islamic terror network.

    Ronald Reagan called the terrorists “freedom fighters”. The US supplied weapons to the Islamic brigades. It was all for “a good cause”: fighting the Soviet Union and regime change, leading to the demise of a secular government in Afghanistan.

    4. Jihadist textbooks were published by the University of Nebraska. “The United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings.”

    5. Osama bin Laden, America’s bogyman and founder of Al Qaeda was recruited by the CIA in 1979 at the very outset of the US sponsored jihadist war against Afghanistan. He was 22 years old and was trained in a CIA sponsored guerrilla training camp.

    Al Qaeda was not behind the 9/11 Attacks. September 11, 2001 provided a justification for waging a war against Afghanistan on the grounds that Afghanistan was a state sponsor of terrorism, supportive of Al Qaeda. The 9/11 attacks were instrumental in the formulation of the “Global War on Terrorism”.

    B. The Islamic State (ISIL)

    6. The Islamic State (ISIL) was originally an Al Qaeda affiliated entity created by US intelligence with the support of Britain’s MI6, Israel’s Mossad, Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Saudi Arabia’s General Intelligence Presidency (GIP), Ri’āsat Al-Istikhbārāt Al-’Āmah ( رئاسة الاستخبارات العامة‎).

    7. The ISIL brigades were involved in the US-NATO supported insurgency in Syria directed against the government of Bashar al Assad.

    8. NATO and the Turkish High Command were responsible for the recruitment of ISIL and Al Nusrah mercenaries from the outset of the Syrian insurgency in March 2011. According to Israeli intelligence sources, this initiative consisted in:

    “a campaign to enlist thousands of Muslim volunteers in Middle East countries and the Muslim world to fight alongside the Syrian rebels. The Turkish army would house these volunteers, train them and secure their passage into Syria. (DEBKAfile, NATO to give rebels anti-tank weapons, August 14, 2011.)

    9. There are Western Special Forces and Western intelligence operatives within the ranks of the ISIL. British Special Forces and MI6 have been involved in training jihadist rebels in Syria.

    10. Western military specialists on contract to the Pentagon have trained the terrorists in the use of chemical weapons.

    “The United States and some European allies are using defense contractors to train Syrian rebels on how to secure chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria, a senior U.S. official and several senior diplomats told CNN Sunday. (CNN Report, December 9, 2012)

    11. The ISIL’s practice of beheadings is part of the US-sponsored terrorist training programs implemented in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

    12. Recruited by America’s ally, a large number of ISIL mercenaries are convicted criminals released from Saudi prisons on condition they join the ISIL. Saudi death row inmates were recruited to join the terror brigades.

    13. Israel has supported the ISIL and Al Nusrah brigades out of the Golan Heights.

    Jihadist fighters have met Israeli IDF officers as well as Prime Minister Netanyahu. The IDF top brass tacitly acknowledges that “global jihad elements inside Syria” [ISIL and Al Nusrah] are supported by Israel. (See image below)

    “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Moshe Ya’alon next to a wounded mercenary, Israeli military field hospital at the occupied Golan Heights’ border with Syria, 18 February 2014″


    C. Syria and Iraq

    14. The ISIL are the foot soldiers of the Western military alliance. Their unspoken mandate is to wreck havoc and destruction in Syria and Iraq, acting on behalf of their US sponsors.

    15. US Senator John McCain has met up with jihadist terrorist leaders in Syria.

    16. The Islamic State (IS) militia, which is currently the alleged target of a US-NATO bombing campaign under a “counter-terrorism” mandate, continues to be supported covertly by the US. Washington and its allies continue to provide military aid to the Islamic State.

    17. US and allied bombings are not targeting the ISIL, they are bombing the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria including factories and oil refineries.

    18. The IS caliphate project is part of a longstanding US foreign policy agenda to carve up Iraq and Syria into separate territories: a Sunni Islamist Caliphate, an Arab Shia Republic, a Republic of Kurdistan.

    D. The Global War on Terrorism (GWOT)

    19. “The Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT) is presented as a “Clash of Civilizations”, a war between competing values and religions, when in reality it is an outright war of conquest, guided by strategic and economic objectives.

    20. U.S.-sponsored Al Qaeda terror brigades (covertly supported by Western intelligence) have been deployed in Mali, Niger, Nigeria, the Central African Republic, Somalia and Yemen.

    These various affiliated Al Qaeda entities in the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa and Asia are CIA sponsored “intelligence assets”. They are used by Washington to wreck havoc, create internal conflicts and destabilize sovereign countries.

    21. Boko Haram in Nigeria, Al Shabab in Somalia, the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) (supported by NATO in 2011), Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), Jemaah Islamiah (JI) in Indonesia, among other Al Qaeda affiliated groups are supported covertly by Western intelligence.

    22. The US is also supporting Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist organizations in the Xinjiang Uighur autonomous region of China. The underlying objective is to trigger political instability in Western China.

    Chinese jihadists are reported to have received “terrorist training” from the Islamic State “in order to conduct attacks in China”. The declared objective of these Chinese-based jihadist entities (which serves the interests of the US) is to establish a Islamic caliphate extending into Western China. (Michel Chossudovsky, America’s War on Terrorism, Global Research, Montreal, 2005, Chapter 2).

    E. Homegrown Terrorists

    23. The Terrorists R Us: While the US is the unspoken architect of the Islamic State, Obama’s holy mandate is to protect America against ISIL attacks.

    24. The homegrown terrorist threat is a fabrication. It is promoted by Western governments and the media with a view to repealing civil liberties and installing a police state. The terror attacks by alleged jihadists and terror warnings are invariably staged events. They are used to create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.

    In turn, the arrests, trials and sentences of “Islamic terrorists” sustain the legitimacy of America’s Homeland Security State and law enforcement apparatus, which has become increasingly militarized.

    The ultimate objective is to instill in the minds of millions of Americans that the enemy is real and the U.S. Administration will protect the lives of its citizens.

    25. The “counter-terrorism” campaign against the Islamic State has contributed to the demonization of Muslims, who in the eyes of Western public opinion are increasingly associated with the jihadists.

    26. Anybody who dares to question the validity of the “Global War on Terrorism” is branded a terrorist and subjected to the anti-terrorist laws.

    The ultimate objective of the “Global War on Terrorism” is to subdue the citizens, totally depoliticize social life in America, prevent people from thinking and conceptualizing, from analyzing facts and challenging the legitimacy of the inquisitorial social order which rules America.

    The Obama Administration has imposed a diabolical consensus with the support of its allies, not to mention the complicit role of the United Nations Security Council. The Western media has embraced the consensus; it has described the Islamic State as an independent entity, an outside enemy which threatens the Western World.

    The Big Lie has become the Truth.

    Say no to the Big Lie. Spread the message.

    The truth is ultimately a powerful weapon.

  • War on Gaza: Survivors recount harrowing Israeli field executions
    A youth from the Abu Hamad family next to the shrouded bodies of his father and two brothers in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip on 9 November 2023 (AFP)
    In Gaza City, Israeli soldiers shoot Palestinians at point blank range, killing them in front of their families
    For three days, Moemen Raed al-Khaldi lay wounded and motionless between the corpses of his killed family members, pretending to be dead to protect himself from being shot by Israeli soldiers.

    On 21 December, Israeli soldiers broke into the house where the Khaldi family had taken refuge in northern Gaza and, in mere minutes, they shot everyone present.

    The soldiers left the house thinking they had killed them all, only Moemen remained alive, bleeding for days before the neighbours found him and took him to hospital.

    From his hospital bed in al-Shifa Medical Complex in Gaza City, he recounted to Middle East Eye what happened on 21 December.

    Khaldi and his family had gone to the home of their relatives in the Sheikh Radwan neighbourhood in the north of Gaza City after being forced to evacuate their own house.

    'I pretended to be dead'

    On that fateful day, after the sun had set, the family had finished prayers and were lying together on the floor, covered in blankets, when Israeli soldiers suddenly blew up the front door and stormed the house.

    "Everyone in the vicinity was immediately wounded, including two women; my grandmother and another pregnant woman," Khaldi said.

    Addressing the family in Hebrew, the Israeli army instructed everyone to evacuate the house. However, as no one spoke Hebrew, the family members didn't understand the orders.

    "The soldiers did not speak Arabic. No one spoke Hebrew and we did not understand what they were saying. So, my grandfather tried to translate. He only said a few words: 'Listen to what the soldiers are telling you and go out'," Khaldi said.

    "The soldiers turned around and thought that it was my father who had spoken. They shot him with a bullet, and he was immediately killed."

    The soldiers then shot everyone else in the room, including Khaldi.

    "My grandfather was then martyred, followed by my uncle, then another two men who had also taken refuge with us, then one of the owners of the house. After that, my grandmother and the pregnant woman were martyred."

    After he was shot, sustaining wounds to his legs, Khaldi lay motionless on the floor, feigning death to prevent further gunfire from the soldiers.

    "I was protecting myself by staying in a place between my uncle’s back and the wall. I was protecting my head in this position. I stayed like this for three days pretending not to be alive. During that time, the army came in and out of the house, destroying the place, but I pretended to be [dead]," he recalled.

    "Three days later, people transferred me along with my martyred family members to the hospital."

    'They shot mum, then dad'

    On 27 October, the Israeli army launched a ground invasion into the urban areas, streets, and densely populated neighbourhoods of the Gaza Strip.

    Days ahead of the invasion, the Israeli military started ordering the residents of Gaza City and the rest of the northern Gaza Strip to evacuate their homes and relocate to the areas in the southern Gaza Valley.

    The military said it considers the Palestinians who did not comply with the evacuation orders as "terrorists", and its forces have since been using deadly force against the people who have chosen to stay.

    'No sooner had she said that, they shot her, then they shot dad'

    - Faisal al-Khaldi, six

    On 22 December, in the same neighbourhood where Khaldi’s family was executed, his six-year-old relative, Faisal Ahmed al-Khaldi, survived a similar incident after Israeli soldiers shot his parents dead in front of him at his uncle's house.

    "We were at home and the tank was [stationed] by the building's door. One night, they broke down the gate and stormed in. The door to my uncle Mohammed’s [apartment] was locked, they broke it and entered. They shot everyone in the guest room," Faisal told MEE.

    "We were sleeping, I heard their [noise], so I asked my mum: What is this sound? She told me: These are Israelis. No sooner had she said that, they shot her, then they shot dad."

    Israeli soldiers then ordered the rest of Faisal's family members to gather in one room, leaving the children to watch them from the corridor.

    Faisal was hit by shrapnel from the bullets that killed his parents, but shock kept him from feeling the wound at the time.

    "We hid in the bedroom of my cousin Layan. We then headed to the door, I could not walk, I kept on falling, so my uncle, Mohammed, carried me. When he did, the soldiers ordered him and Layan's grandfather to take off their clothes," he recounted.

    "They ordered them to sit down, and we all went to sit in the corridor."

    After the soldiers left the house, the family went to take refuge in a school, and was only then that Faisal felt a pain in his abdomen.

    "They took off my clothes and found out that I was wounded and took me to the hospital," he said.

    Executed before his disabled children

    A week later, just a few kilometres away, Israeli soldiers executed 65-year-old Kamel Mohammed Nofal, a retired United Nations Relief and Works Agency employee, in front of his wife and disabled adult children while "he was trying to explain to them that his children could not understand the instructions," his relative, Jamal Naim, told MEE.

    "Israeli forces arrived at the building where Kamel and his family lived and ordered everyone to evacuate the building. They all went down and gathered on the street in front of the building" he said.

    "There were 24 residents, including Kamel, his 63-year-old wife Fatima Jamil Timraz, and their four children, their spouses and their children. At least nine children were among them, the youngest was four months old."

    According to Naim, three of Nofal’s children were deaf and mute, and the fourth was visually impaired.

    "Israeli soldiers were giving the group instructions about where to go and what to do, but Kamel’s children could not understand as they were not able to properly hear, see, or communicate with the forces, so the soldiers proceeded to detain them," he said.

    "Kamel spoke in Hebrew, telling the soldiers that his sons Hussam, 40, Ahmed, 36, and Mahmoud, 32, and his daughter Wafaa, 31, were disabled. They immediately shot him. He was killed in front of his children and everyone else."

    Naim reported that Israeli soldiers subsequently detained Nofal's children and the rest of his family members. Their current whereabouts remain unknown.

    'They executed everyone'

    When the Israeli military reached al-Rimal neighbourhood in the centre of Gaza City, it targeted several commercial and residential buildings. The residents, however, were not allowed to evacuate.

    Journalist Ahmed Dawoud, 38, was still in his home near the Palestine crossroads when an Israeli tank targeted his neighbour’s apartment and he was forced to flee.

    "I left my home after the nearby apartment was burnt. We left the building along with around 30 people, including the daughter of my journalist friend. We were trying to flee, but upon arriving at the crossroads, two girls were killed," he recounted.

    'The body of my friend's daughter remained on the street for five days'

    - Ahmed Dawoud, 38

    "One of [the girls] was eight years old, she was my journalist friend’s daughter, and the other was 15 years old. They executed them before our eyes. If we did not take shelter, we would have also been among the martyrs."

    When the soldiers opened fire on the residents, some retreated to the building, and others decided to walk on to a safer place.

    "The body of my friend’s daughter remained on the street. We entered a random house, and for four or five days, we were just watching [out the window], trying to retrieve the body. We were encircled by Israeli soldiers who were executing everyone in the area," he said.

    "Five days later, we went down and retrieved the body under the [Israeli] quadcopters"

    When he fled the building, some of his neighbours remained in their apartment. When Israeli soldiers entered the building and found them, he said, they executed the entire family, before setting the house on fire.

    "They executed them all, the entire group... They executed everyone in the area, they did not leave anyone."

"I was protecting myself by staying in a place between my uncle’s back and the wall. I was protecting my head in this position. I stayed like this for three days pretending not to be alive. During that time, the army came in and out of the house, destroying the place, but I pretended to be [dead]," he recalled. "Three days later, people transferred me along with my martyred family members to the hospital." 'They shot mum, then dad' On 27 October, the Israeli army launched a ground invasion into the urban areas, streets, and densely populated neighbourhoods of the Gaza Strip. Days ahead of the invasion, the Israeli military started ordering the residents of Gaza City and the rest of the northern Gaza Strip to evacuate their homes and relocate to the areas in the southern Gaza Valley. The military said it considers the Palestinians who did not comply with the evacuation orders as "terrorists", and its forces have since been using deadly force against the people who have chosen to stay. 'No sooner had she said that, they shot her, then they shot dad' - Faisal al-Khaldi, six On 22 December, in the same neighbourhood where Khaldi’s family was executed, his six-year-old relative, Faisal Ahmed al-Khaldi, survived a similar incident after Israeli soldiers shot his parents dead in front of him at his uncle's house. "We were at home and the tank was [stationed] by the building's door. One night, they broke down the gate and stormed in. The door to my uncle Mohammed’s [apartment] was locked, they broke it and entered. They shot everyone in the guest room," Faisal told MEE. "We were sleeping, I heard their [noise], so I asked my mum: What is this sound? She told me: These are Israelis. No sooner had she said that, they shot her, then they shot dad." Israeli soldiers then ordered the rest of Faisal's family members to gather in one room, leaving the children to watch them from the corridor. Faisal was hit by shrapnel from the bullets that killed his parents, but shock kept him from feeling the wound at the time. "We hid in the bedroom of my cousin Layan. We then headed to the door, I could not walk, I kept on falling, so my uncle, Mohammed, carried me. When he did, the soldiers ordered him and Layan's grandfather to take off their clothes," he recounted. "They ordered them to sit down, and we all went to sit in the corridor." After the soldiers left the house, the family went to take refuge in a school, and was only then that Faisal felt a pain in his abdomen. "They took off my clothes and found out that I was wounded and took me to the hospital," he said. Executed before his disabled children A week later, just a few kilometres away, Israeli soldiers executed 65-year-old Kamel Mohammed Nofal, a retired United Nations Relief and Works Agency employee, in front of his wife and disabled adult children while "he was trying to explain to them that his children could not understand the instructions," his relative, Jamal Naim, told MEE. War on Gaza: The Palestinian family 'executed' in their home by Israeli forces Read More » "Israeli forces arrived at the building where Kamel and his family lived and ordered everyone to evacuate the building. They all went down and gathered on the street in front of the building" he said. "There were 24 residents, including Kamel, his 63-year-old wife Fatima Jamil Timraz, and their four children, their spouses and their children. At least nine children were among them, the youngest was four months old." According to Naim, three of Nofal’s children were deaf and mute, and the fourth was visually impaired. "Israeli soldiers were giving the group instructions about where to go and what to do, but Kamel’s children could not understand as they were not able to properly hear, see, or communicate with the forces, so the soldiers proceeded to detain them," he said. "Kamel spoke in Hebrew, telling the soldiers that his sons Hussam, 40, Ahmed, 36, and Mahmoud, 32, and his daughter Wafaa, 31, were disabled. They immediately shot him. He was killed in front of his children and everyone else." Naim reported that Israeli soldiers subsequently detained Nofal's children and the rest of his family members. Their current whereabouts remain unknown. 'They executed everyone' When the Israeli military reached al-Rimal neighbourhood in the centre of Gaza City, it targeted several commercial and residential buildings. The residents, however, were not allowed to evacuate. Journalist Ahmed Dawoud, 38, was still in his home near the Palestine crossroads when an Israeli tank targeted his neighbour’s apartment and he was forced to flee. "I left my home after the nearby apartment was burnt. We left the building along with around 30 people, including the daughter of my journalist friend. We were trying to flee, but upon arriving at the crossroads, two girls were killed," he recounted. 'The body of my friend's daughter remained on the street for five days' - Ahmed Dawoud, 38 "One of [the girls] was eight years old, she was my journalist friend’s daughter, and the other was 15 years old. They executed them before our eyes. If we did not take shelter, we would have also been among the martyrs." When the soldiers opened fire on the residents, some retreated to the building, and others decided to walk on to a safer place. "The body of my friend’s daughter remained on the street. We entered a random house, and for four or five days, we were just watching [out the window], trying to retrieve the body. We were encircled by Israeli soldiers who were executing everyone in the area," he said. "Five days later, we went down and retrieved the body under the [Israeli] quadcopters" When he fled the building, some of his neighbours remained in their apartment. When Israeli soldiers entered the building and found them, he said, they executed the entire family, before setting the house on fire. "They executed them all, the entire group... They executed everyone in the area, they did not leave anyone." - Mohammed Qreiqe in Gaza contributed to this report https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/war-gaza-survivors-recount-harrowing-israeli-field-executions

  • OIC and Arab League must back South Africa's ICJ case on Israel
    People wave Palestinian and Jordanian flags as they march during a demonstration near the US embassy in Amman in solidarity with the people of Gaza on 15 December 2023 (Khalil Mazraawi/AFP)
    The OIC and the Arab League have an opportunity to join a historic process that could redefine how international law works and uphold justice
    The ongoing war in Gaza has opened a window for Muslim-majority nations to lead by example in upholding the rule of law and justice. This moment presents a chance to respond to their citizens' calls for action and to pursue legal avenues in response to alleged war crimes in Gaza.

    Beyond material progress and architectural marvels that rival ancient wonders, a truly progressive state is marked by its commitment to accountability and justice - a domain where some established democracies have faltered.

    After enduring a harrowing 85 days of bombardment resulting in nearly 22,000 killed, including more than 8,000 children and 6,000 women, 1.9 million displaced and the collapse of the health infrastructure, South Africa, a signatory of the Genocide Convention has finally called upon the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to examine the crisis.

    This long-awaited step reflects a crucial recognition of the international community's role in conflict resolution and human rights protection.

    Members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Arab League stand at a pivotal crossroads, where the decision to support South Africa's legal action against Israel at the ICJ could mark a significant step towards upholding international law and justice.

    A pivotal crossroads

    The Arab League and OIC should urgently make it clear that as organisations they unequivocally support South Africa’s application to the ICJ in the same way as the OIC supported Gambia’s case against Myanmar’s alleged genocide of the Rohingya Muslims.

    South Africa's meticulous and legally grounded application to the ICJ presents a profound opportunity for these influential states to endorse a process that seeks to clarify and address serious allegations in a legally constituted forum, free from political interference.

    The Arab League and OIC should urgently make it clear that as organisations, they unequivocally support South Africa’s application to the ICJ

    South Africa's application to the ICJ is not a mere accusation; it is a comprehensive, 84-page document publicly available on the ICJ’s website, grounded in detailed factual and legal analysis.

    This move by South Africa is not, as Israel claims, a form of cooperation with any terrorist organisation or an act of defamation or antisemitism; it is a fulfilment of obligations under the Genocide Convention.

    It is an unimpeachable act of responsibility to the international community and the principles of justice and human rights.

    And it could prevent further loss of life through the ICJ issuing urgent provisional measures to Israel.

    Accusing Israel of genocide is a serious claim, one that the ICJ is uniquely qualified to assess without political bias. It is crucial to understand that holding a state accountable in international law, as sought by South Africa, is not an act of defamation but a pursuit of justice.

    Israel’s claim that such legal actions are akin to "blood libel" is a purposeful and dangerous misrepresentation. No state, including Israel, is above international law.



    The British court's decision in 2009 to issue an arrest warrant for an Israeli politician on allegations of war crimes during Operation Cast Lead in Gaza is a testament to the necessity of legal scrutiny over political immunity.

    Israeli politicians' recent statements, some with potentially genocidal implications, should also be subject to judicial examination. This is not about targeting a nation or a people but ensuring that actions and words are held against the rigour of international law.

    Beyond rhetoric

    The issue of Hamas and its accountability under international law should also be addressed in a legal setting. Collective punishment of the Palestinian people is not an acceptable response to the actions of a particular group. Both parties should be subject to legal scrutiny when there is evidence of violating international law.


    War on Gaza: South Africa launches International Court of Justice case accusing Israel of genocide

    Read More »
    For the OIC and the Arab League states, supporting South Africa’s initiative at the ICJ is a chance to contribute to a process that upholds justice, due process, and international law. It is an opportunity to move beyond rhetoric and towards a structured legal examination of serious allegations.

    No doubt leaders of the OIC and Arab League states condemn Israel’s alleged actions in their hearts. It is better still that they speak out against alleged violations that we see on our screens daily and even better still that they take action and join South Africa at the ICJ in the first step to break Israel’s gifted impunity and hold it accountable for alleged international law violations.

    The ICJ operates independently, free from external pressures. Any objections to South Africa’s application should be presented through legal submissions to the court. Attempts to influence the court outside of its legal processes undermine the very principles of justice and impartiality that the court stands for.

    The OIC and the Arab League have the opportunity to be part of a historic process that could redefine the application of international law in conflict resolution and uphold the principles of justice and accountability on the global stage.

  • How to save money on medicine purchases
    Medicine is an essential part of our daily lives, and we often don't realize how much money we spend on it until we see the receipts. With increasing healthcare costs, saving money on medicine purchases has become a crucial concern for many of us. But, with a few simple tips and tricks, it is possible to reduce the burden on our wallets without compromising on our health. Here are some ways you can save money on medicine purchases.

    1. Compare Prices: Just like any other product, the cost of medicines can vary from one pharmacy to another. Instead of always buying from the same store, take the time to compare prices from different pharmacies, both online and offline. You can also use price comparison websites to find the best deals. Don't forget to check for any ongoing promotions or discounts before making your purchase.

    2. Buy Generic Medicines: Generic medicines contain the same active ingredients as brand-name medicines but are usually much cheaper. They are also regulated and approved by the FDA, making them a safe and affordable alternative to brand-name medicines. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if there is a generic version of your prescribed medicine available.

    3. Take Advantage of Prescription Savings Programs: Many pharmacies offer prescription savings programs, where you can receive discounts on your medicines. These programs may require a membership or a small fee, but they can save you a significant amount of money in the long run.

    4. Look for Coupons and Discounts: Keep an eye out for coupons and discounts offered by pharmacies or drug manufacturers. You can find these in newspapers, flyers, or on their websites. You can also sign up for loyalty programs and newsletters to receive notifications about upcoming sales and discounts.

    5. Ask for Samples: If you are starting a new medication, ask your doctor for samples. This can save you money as well as help you determine if the medication works for you before making a larger purchase. If samples are not available, ask your doctor for a smaller dosage to start with, so that you can minimize the cost if the medication doesn't suit you.

    6. Check Your Insurance Coverage: If you have health insurance, check if your prescribed medicines are covered under your plan. Some insurance plans may offer discounts or reimbursements for certain medications or pharmacies. You can also ask your doctor to prescribe generic medicines instead of brand-name ones, as they are more likely to be covered by insurance.

    7. Consider Online Pharmacies: Online pharmacies often offer lower prices compared to physical stores. However, make sure to do your research and only buy from reputable and licensed online pharmacies to ensure the quality and safety of your medication.

    8. Avoid Impulse Buys: Don't be tempted to stock up on medicines you don't need, just because they are on sale. Stick to your prescribed medications and only buy what you need. This can save you money and prevent you from wasting any unused medication.

    9. Use Over-the-Counter Medicines: Certain common ailments can be treated with over-the-counter medicines rather than prescribed ones. Consult with your doctor before making any changes to your medication but consider using over-the-counter medicines when possible to save money.

    10. Take Care of Your Health: Prevention is always better and cheaper than cure. Take care of your health by eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, and practicing good hygiene. This can reduce your chances of falling ill and needing costly medications.

    In conclusion, with a little research and planning, it is possible to save money on medicine purchases without compromising your health. Always consult with your doctor before making any changes to your medication, and be on the lookout for discounts and promotions. Implement these tips, and you will see a noticeable difference in your medical expenses. Remember, a healthier and wealthier you is the ultimate goal!

  • Meta censors pro-Palestinian views on a global scale, report claims
    Rights group says Facebook and Instagram routinely engage in ‘six key patterns of undue censorship’ of content supporting Palestine

    Protesters unfurl the Palestinian flag in front of a sign with the Meta name, symbol and address.
    Meta has engaged in a “systemic and global” censorship of pro-Palestinian content since the outbreak of the Israel-Gaza war on 7 October, according to a new report from Human Rights Watch (HRW).

    In a scathing 51-page report, the organization documented and reviewed more than a thousand reported instances of Meta removing content and suspending or permanently banning accounts on Facebook and Instagram. The company exhibited “six key patterns of undue censorship” of content in support of Palestine and Palestinians, including the taking down of posts, stories and comments; disabling accounts; restricting users’ ability to interact with others’ posts; and “shadow banning”, where the visibility and reach of a person’s material is significantly reduced, according to HRW.

    Examples it cites include content originating from more than 60 countries, mostly in English, and all in “peaceful support of Palestine, expressed in diverse ways”. Even HRW’s own posts seeking examples of online censorship were flagged as spam, the report said.

    “Censorship of content related to Palestine on Instagram and Facebook is systemic and global [and] Meta’s inconsistent enforcement of its own policies led to the erroneous removal of content about Palestine,” the group said in the report, citing “erroneous implementation, overreliance on automated tools to moderate content, and undue government influence over content removals” as the roots of the problem.

    In a statement to the Guardian, Meta acknowledged it makes errors that are “frustrating” for people, but said that “the implication that we deliberately and systemically suppress a particular voice is false. Claiming that 1,000 examples, out of the enormous amount of content posted about the conflict, are proof of ‘systemic censorship’ may make for a good headline, but that doesn’t make the claim any less misleading.

    Meta said it was the only company in the world to have publicly released human rights due diligence on issues related to Israel and Palestine .

    “This report ignores the realities of enforcing our policies globally during a fast-moving, highly polarized and intense conflict, which has led to an increase in content being reported to us. Our policies are designed to give everyone a voice while at the same time keeping our platforms safe,” the company’s statement reads.

    It is the second time this month that Meta has been challenged over accusations that it routinely silences pro-Palestinian content and voices.

    Last week Elizabeth Warren, Democratic senator for Massachusetts, wrote to Meta’s co-founder and chief executive officer, Mark Zuckerberg, demanding information following hundreds of reports from Instagram users dating back to October that their content was demoted or removed, and their accounts subjected to shadow banning.

    On Tuesday, Meta’s oversight board said the company had been wrong to remove two videos of the conflict in particular from Instagram and Facebook. The board said the videos were valuable for “informing the world about human suffering on both sides”. One showed the aftermath of an airstrike near al-Shifa hospital in Gaza via Instagram, the other a woman being taken hostage during the 7 October attack via Facebook. The clips were reinstated.

    Users of Meta’s products have documented what they say is technological bias in favor of pro-Israel content and against pro-Palestinian posts. Instagram’s translation software replaced “Palestinian” followed by the Arabic phrase “Praise be to Allah” to “Palestinian terrorists” in English. WhatsApp’s AI, when asked to generate images of Palestinian boys and girls, created cartoon children with guns, whereas its images Israeli children did not include firearms.

  • Why Does the Govt Want Us Dead?
    Alternative Health and HealingJuly 28, 2020

    Article by Jason Christoff

    Although this is a very sharp and harsh question to headline any article, it is a question that has to be asked. Why are most (if not all) of our trusted institutions colluding to kill or injure us? Why? For the average person who lives inside our very cozy media and government illusion, it’s often a question that their minds won’t even allow them to ponder. The average person’s fear of reality ends up being a maximum-security psychic prison in most cases. This same fear inhibits the average person from processing what’s obviously happening in our world today. The fear I allude to, which inhibits many people from coming into full contact with their very harsh and painful reality, has to do with a massive Grand Canyon sized contradiction gap between what the general public was taught (by conventional media and within government schools) and what’s literally happening right in front of our very eyes.

    Most people today are mentally paralyzed from reacting to their own destruction. Many just can’t muster a logical reaction to the culling/injuring of their loved ones and the destruction of their entire culture….simply because they were taught for decades that “the government would never do that! That’s just a conspiracy theory!“. Here’s what should be a very obvious NEWSFLASH, the governments around the world are in fact doing that. On top of that, much worse is coming from these governments if “we the people” don’t start thinking, acting and talking like fully functional mature adults very soon. May I remind everyone that democide, which is a word that means “death by government“, has tallied well over 250 million kills in the last 100 years alone. Governments do indeed kill their own citizens and there are concrete reasons for those state sanctioned murders. I’ll explain the primary reason why governments kill their own citizens, a little further down in this article. You won’t like the answer but I’m going to tell you anyway, so maybe at some point the public could possibly muster a logical and rational reaction to their state sponsored (propaganda driven) euthanasia.


    Government is also just a word. Government doesn’t exist in real time. Let me explain. If you can’t have tea or make an appointment with something, it doesn’t exist. Go ahead, go into a government building and tell them you would like to make an appointment with government. Tell a government staffer that you would like to talk directly to government. The staffers in the government building will offer you a meeting with a person whose name isn’t “government”. It’s like going to church and wanted to talk to God, you only get a representative of God, an intermediary, a go-between. The point here is that we’re being euthanized and crippled by evil people hiding behind an illusionary facade purposely named government, because in our bizzarro world……humans appear perfectly OK with being killed by something that doesn’t exist, compared to being killed by a regular person. If a regular person murders even one citizen, the public seems to collectively understand that a crime has been committed. If an organization called government (run by real people) murders millions of other people, many humans seem OK with all of it, as most appear generally unable to mount a logical response to state sanctioned murder. These blind spots in the human psyche make most humans sitting ducks when the state initiates one of its historical butchering rampages. Just such a butchering rampage started in March 2020 and of course it’s still ongoing.


    History and Origins of Agenda 2030/The Great Reset/New World Order Cabal
    Unfortunately, all your friends who work for the government are IN FACT getting paid to destroy themselves, destroy their communities, destroy their culture, destroy their own kids and destroy their countries. I explain clearly why all government staffers are the most dangerous people on the planet inside this new article. Democides are never executed by the people at the top, who hide behind the fabricated government facade and name plate. It’s the government staffers who have carried out the democides throughout all of recorded history. Today is no different. If a government staffer will inject poison into themselves to keep getting a paycheck, they’ll certainly inject poison into you, in order to keep getting that same paycheck. There’s no psychology degree required to make this connection in logic. For a government staffer to keep getting paid, the destruction of the public and the government corruption must continue. Government school produces graduates who are unable to care for themselves independently, in the most important ways….so blind obedience to evil (or anyone else handing out the orders) is already baked in the cake.

    All government staffers are indeed executing the evil orders that they’re given from on high. In the end what’s happening on our streets is enough to make Satan himself giggle with envy. Government workers are being financially compensated to destroy themselves and their own countries because they believe “the government would never do that.” These government workers can’t react because they’re completely dependent on the state stealing money from the general public and handing it over to them (known as piracy and sharing the booty of the heist)…..in order that the government staffers execute their evil orders.


    The Deagel Report Predicts Massive Depopulation By 2025
    We also have the general public getting destroyed, who stand there paralyzed, watching their own voluntary slow paced soft kill genocide unfold……..because they also can’t reconcile reality with their conditioned programming that “the government would never do that.” As the government staffers are paid to kill and injure their neighbors, those government staffers are always thinking “the government would never do that.” As the general public are getting euthanized by the government staffers, the average citizen is also thinking “the government would never do that.” The government staffers are killing and injuring. The public are being murdered and injured yet both parties can’t believe it’s happening, so it’s like a mass hypnosis show gone wild. In all reality, it is a mass hypnosis show gone wild. The entire COVID agenda is based on mass hypnosis.

    Trying to explain this to a mind controlled and hypnotized population is like trying to staple water to a tree. You can try but failure is usually guaranteed to occur somewhere along the way. As the brainwashed North Americans are culling each other for rent, food and entertainment credits (AKA money) you simply hear them yelling from inside the cull zones, “TRUMP!”, “BIDEN!”, “BLACK FRIDAY!” “INCLUSION!”, “GENDER!”, “WE NEED MORE GOVERNMENT TO FIX GOVERNMENT!”, “CNN!”, ‘TUCKER CARLSON!”, “WHO WON THE SPORTS BALL GAME!”, CANADA’S THE FREEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!”, “SAFE AND EFFECTIVE!!” etc., etc. You could strangle these people with a cordless phone, really you could. The democide has never been so easy.


    In fact, this democide is actually democide 2.0, as I’ve pointed out numerous times in past articles. In democide 2.0, the people are psychologically manipulated to destroy themselves, poison themselves, euthanize themselves, poison their own children, censor anyone telling the truth, insult anyone telling the truth, celebrate the people paid to murder them, adore the institutions paid to murder them, plus wait patiently in line for their dose of poison. No one was born this stupid of course, the people organizing this cull made sure to make the public this stupid, in order to lubricate the cull. Yes, all this was planned long in advance. Tricking people to kill, euthanize and democide themselves (before the enemy even presents itself inside our borders) is called 5th Generation Warfare. What’s even more shocking is that the higher your grades in government school, the more likely you were to parrot the lies of known liars and fall for the COVID scam that started in March 2020….. according to Dr. Mattias Desmet.


    As for the Grand Canyon sized gap between what the public was taught by media/government and what’s really happening on the ground today (which freezes the public in their collective shoes) let’s just look at one example. We were all taught through government schooling and lamestream media that each country was separate and that each country was run by separate interests, unique to the people inside each different country. What happened from 2020 forward proved, without any shadow of a doubt, that not only was this widely held belief FALSE but each supposed separate government was heavily invested in similar policies that aimed to destroy its citizenry on every level imaginable.

    Lock downs were used worldwide to destroy the public financially, as the big corporations were permitted to stay open as 25% of all small businesses were wiped off the map. More for the ruling 1%, less for you…..leading to none for you if you don’t wake up. Lock downs were used to destroy the public emotionally, as suicide rates are now the highest in recorded history. Bottle shops, narcotic outlets in Canada (where they now sell cocaine, heroin and fentanyl to the public legally in BC), junk food corner stores and fast-food restaurants were deemed essential during a health crisis, in order to destroy the public physically……and of course the exercise outlets, massage therapists and any health improvement hub were shut down. All for your health and safety of course. All the cocaine, death jabs and bankrupt fitness clubs make you much safer and much healthier. Everyone knows that. The public were destroyed spiritually through church closures and vicious attacks on church leaders. It’s all so obvious…yet you actually need to have at least one living brain cell left on duty, which at this point many don’t possess unfortunately.


    Fauci’s Hospital Covid Protocols are Killing THOUSANDS
    And it’s not like anyone tried to warn us for decades in advance, right? We’ve had an absolute Macy’s Day parade of whistleblowers, trying to warn the comfort coma collective that something wasn’t right and that trouble was brewing. We had Yuri Besmenov who tried to warn us 50 years ago. We had Jordan Maxwell. We had Dr. John Coleman. We had G Edward Griffin. We had Dr. Richard Day and Dr. Lawrence Dunegan. We had Bill Cooper. We had Eustace Mullins. We had Ronald Bernard. We’ve had Alan Watt. We’ve even had Jesus talking about the banksters long ago but today the church leaders are getting paid (though corrupt channels like the Faith Based Initiative in the US) to tell their followers to remove their brains and take their shots of poison. How many wake-up calls does humanity really need to start connecting the dots here, especially when the dots are the size of the moon and the sun. God at this point is doing a 24 hour a day face palm, especially when people are waiting patiently inline to inject poison into themselves, thinking that the poison will make them healthier and thinking that poisoning themselves will make their bodies work better. Poison can’t make you healthy. Poison doesn’t work like that. Remember the bible’s warning about Pharmakia? Remember? Remember the phrase, “the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince people he didn’t exist“?


    The Fall of the Cabal ~ Original 10 Part Series and the Sequel
    So again the big question………why are they trying to injure and/or kill me? The answer to this question is simple and it won’t take too long to explain. It’s about theft. You’re dealing with a multi-generational crime syndicate who has set this entire hypno-brainwashing death centric stage production up, in order to steal your assets. All your assets. Their plan is also simple. If you die and you have a will, your assets go to your kids or other beneficiaries. If your kids or beneficiaries are killed and they don’t have anyone to bequeath those assets to, those assets go to the state. The state is this ancient multi-generation crime syndicate. Below is a chart regarding all the different ways they’re using to either kill you right now or the ways they will use to try and kill you in the future. Each square represents a power play (by this death cult), which will end with you getting denied what you need to live, if you happen to refuse the genocide injection of the day. Death or death? What’s your choice? Door #1 (death) or door #2 (death)? Are you ready to stop drinking wine, eating junk food and watching a screen yet? Do you think you’re ready to react yet? This cult will also do everything they can to bankrupt your country, in order to place your country into receivership to the banking cartel. At the point, the banking cartel (them again, dressed as bankers) get to repossess all your assets in a nationwide bankruptcy trustee agreement. If they kill everyone in your family line, they get all your stuff. If they purposely bankrupt the country, they also get all your stuff. It may be time to start paying closer attention to the con men on TV in $3000 suits.


    The group doing this has done this before and you can read more about this group in this article and many more articles on my website. That is why you’re born into a world where some people are billionaires, and your family has nothing. This cycle is a repeating cycle. Grow the humans on the human honey farms, let those indoctrinated and brainwashed humans produce the honey (money and assets), steal that honey, murder the bees (us, the humans… as to get rid of any witlessness) and start the human bee farming operation all over again with a brand new crop of humans who are mind controlled and brainwashed into accepting this massive spider web of lies, deception, piracy and open satanism.

    The solution is simple. Humans are the only farmed animals on this planet who can jump the fence and remove their farmers by force. This is the solution.

    Why Does the Govt Want Us Dead? Alternative Health and HealingJuly 28, 2020 Article by Jason Christoff Although this is a very sharp and harsh question to headline any article, it is a question that has to be asked. Why are most (if not all) of our trusted institutions colluding to kill or injure us? Why? For the average person who lives inside our very cozy media and government illusion, it’s often a question that their minds won’t even allow them to ponder. The average person’s fear of reality ends up being a maximum-security psychic prison in most cases.

  • U.S. and Russia ‘can’t stop’ Turkey’s new Syria incursion

    PROGRAMMING NOTE: We’ll be off for Thanksgiving this Thursday and Friday but back to our normal schedule on Monday, Nov. 28.

    Turkey is threatening to kill more U.S.-allied Kurdish fighters in Syria — and the United States and Russia might not try very hard to stop it.

    Turkish President RECEP TAYYIP ERDOÄžAN vowed to soon launch a ground attack on U.S.-backed Kurdish forces in northern Syria, claiming they were responsible for a deadly terrorist attack last week.

    “We have been bearing down on terrorists for a few days with our planes, cannons and guns,” ErdoÄŸan said Tuesday, alluding to Turkey’s recent lethal aerial bombardments in Syria. “God willing, we will root out all of them as soon as possible, together with our tanks, our soldiers.”

    It’s unclear if it was Kurdish separatists who killed six people in the heart of Istanbul on Nov. 13. The Kurds deny the allegation, after all. But experts say it has presented ErdoÄŸan with a pretext to delve deeper into northern Syria, a push he’s long wanted to do.

    “Turkey is quite serious about the current Syria offensive,” the Middle East Institute’s and St. Lawrence University’s HOWARD EISSENSTAT told NatSec Daily. “This fits with both long-standing Turkish assumptions about its security interests and ErdoÄŸan’s need to look strong in advance of elections scheduled for June. Under the current circumstances, Russia or the U.S. might be able to impose limits on Turkish actions, but they can’t stop them entirely.”

    Both have reasons to be worried about Turkey launching a ground attack.

    Russia backs Syrian President BASHAR AL-ASSAD while Turkey supports rebels seeking to topple him. “We understand and respect Turkey’s concerns about ensuring its own security,” Kremlin spokesperson DMITRY PESKOV told reporters. “At the same time, we call on all parties to refrain from steps that could lead to the destabilization of the overall situation.”

    About 900 U.S. troops, meanwhile, are in Syria to keep ISIS at bay alongside Syrian Democratic Forces and fear heavy fighting could disrupt their plans.

    Turkey has a legitimate right to defend itself and its citizens, National Security Council spokesperson JOHN KIRBY told NatSec Daily during a Tuesday news conference, but added cross-border operations “might force a reaction by some of our SDF partners that would limit and constrain their ability to fight against ISIS…and we want to be able to keep the pressure on ISIS.”

    “We continue to urge for deescalation on all sides and in our conversations,” Pentagon deputy press secretary SABRINA SINGH later told reporters.

    But those statements don’t fully reflect the state of play, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy’s SONER CAGAPTAY told NatSec Daily, because “Ankara has just about aligned all-stars for an incursion.”

    The U.S. may not resist too strongly since it wants Turkey, a NATO ally, to accept Sweden and Finland’s accession to the alliance. Cagaptay said a Monday State Department statement that barely lambasted Turkey over the violence in Syria was evidence of Washington’s light approach. “I can’t recall any statement that nicely worded about Turkey’s incursion into Syria in a long time,” he said.

    And Russia is providing millions for Turkey’s economy and energy sector, propping up ErdoÄŸan ahead of next year’s vote. In exchange, experts say ErdoÄŸan may finally accept Assad as Syria’s legitimate ruler, effectively bringing an end to what remains of the war in Syria.

    If that’s the case, it seems the U.S. and Russia may stand aside as Turkey kills more Kurds — and American allies — in Syria.

    The Inbox

    U.S. LEADERS IN ASIA: Vice President KAMALA HARRIS warned of U.S. intervention if China takes aim at the Philippines, our own PHELIM KINE reports.

    In a visit to the Philippines, Harris pushed back against Beijing’s expansive territorial claims in the region, pledging $7.5 million for the Philippine Coast Guard. On Monday, Harris also warned of a U.S. response if there is “an armed attack” on Filipino ships or aircraft in the South China Sea, invoking a treaty between the allies.

    Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson ZHAO LIJIAN clapped back on Tuesday, warning that U.S.-Philippines cooperation “should not target or hurt other countries’ interests.”

    Meanwhile, Defense Secretary LLOYD AUSTIN met with his Chinese counterpart in Cambodia on Tuesday, discussing strained bilateral relations and regional and global security issues, the Associated Press’ HENG SINITH reports.

    The two met on the sidelines of a regional meeting, marking the second time in six months Austin and Gen. WEI FENGHE met face-to-face. It comes just over a week after President JOE BIDEN met with Chinese leader XI JINPING in Indonesia, a gathering widely seen as an effort to ease tensions between the two world powers.

    On the issue of Taiwan, Austin assured Wei of Biden’s commitment to the “one China” policy, but called on China to refrain from taking destabilizing actions toward the island nation, Pentagon spokesperson Brig. Gen. PAT RYDER said.

    EUROPE’S NEW MIGRANT INFLUX: Europe is struggling even more to properly welcome thousands of people seeking asylum from war and famine.

    Specifically, the EU plus Norway and Switzerland recorded about 564,000 applications in August this year — an increase of 62 percent from the same period last year, according to the European Union Agency for Asylum.

    That increase doesn’t include the millions of Ukrainian refugees moving westward since Russia’s invasion on Feb. 24. “Tents and sleeping bags have become a common sight along the canal in central Brussels, as well as in underpasses and railway stations, as some asylum seekers are forced to wait months for shelter after lodging applications,” per The Financial Times’ SAM FLEMING and GUY CHAZAN, underscoring just how overwhelmed the reception system is right now.

    NAVY BLAMES IRAN FOR DRONE ATTACK: The U.S. Navy confirmed Iran’s involvement in a Nov. 15 drone attack on a commercial tanker, identifying the drone as a Shahed-136 — the same type Iran has supplied to Russia for use in Ukraine.

    The attack fits “a historical pattern of Iran’s increasing use of a lethal capability directly or through its proxies across the Middle East,” reads a statement by U.S. Naval Forces Central Command.

    “The Iranian attack on a commercial tanker transiting international waters was deliberate, flagrant and dangerous, endangering the lives of the ship’s crew and destabilizing maritime security in the Middle East,” said Vice Adm. BRAD COOPER, the command’s chief.

    U.S. officials had already said they suspected Iran was behind the strike.

    ARCTIC POWER: Russian President VLADIMIR PUTIN touted Moscow’s growing footprint in the Arctic at a Tuesday flag-raising ceremony that commemorated two new nuclear-powered icebreakers that will allow the country to have year-round access to western parts of the Arctic, Reuters reports.

    The icebreakers “are part of our large-scale, systematic work to re-equip and replenish the domestic icebreaker fleet, to strengthen Russia’s status as a great Arctic power,” Putin said.

    The Arctic has become more significant due to climate change as melting ice has prompted countries like Russia, the U.S. and China to try to increase their influence in the region, which could also affect trade and shipping lane access.

    Keystrokes

    KISS IT GOODBYE, FOR NOW: The idea of creating a new platform where the government and the private sector can rapidly share data on cyber threats has hit a Fort Meade-sized speed bump: the National Security Agency, our friends over at Morning Cybersecurity (for Pros!) report.

    Until recently, the joint collaborative environment looked like a solid bet to make it into the final version of this year’s National Defense Authorization Act, featuring in both the House and Senate markups of the must-pass defense bill.

    But the NSA began voicing objections to the JCE in the last few weeks, tilting the scales against the provision on the Hill, two Hill staffers granted anonymity to speak freely about the proposal told MC.

    The NSA’s “biggest concern” about the legislation is that it “would overly constrain” the NSA and CISA’s ongoing threat-sharing efforts, ROB JOYCE, the director of NSA’s cybersecurity directorate, told MC.

    The Complex

    ON THE WAY: The Army is on track to award the multibillion-dollar contract for the UH-60 Black Hawk replacement by the end of the year, our friends over at Morning Defense (for Pros!) report.

    Competing for the deal are Bell, with its V-280 Valor tiltrotor, and a Sikorsky-Bell team, with the SB-1 Defiant coaxial helicopter for the Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft, Army acquisition chief DOUG BUSH told reporters Monday. Bell estimates the program is worth more than $100 billion because of foreign military sales opportunities.

    Black Hawks won’t be phased out of the Army overnight. The service intends to buy them through fiscal 2028 and does not anticipate the replacement to come online until 2035.

    On the Hill

    NOT WINGING IT: Republicans have an answer for anyone asking about the effect the party’s populist wing might have on foreign policy: Sorry, what?

    Lawmakers at the Halifax International Security Forum told our own ANDREW DESIDERIO that “Congress is likely to allocate well more than the $38 billion the Biden administration requested for Ukraine’s military and economic needs as part of a year-end governing funding bill. And that extra infusion is set to advance with the help of senior Republicans, even as influential conservative groups urge a pause.”

    That means Republicans predict enough Democrats and Republicans will support the package, drowning out loud voices on the right who don’t want to give Kyiv another penny.

    “If we were on the other side of this, they’d be pounding the table saying, ‘Send more money to Ukraine,’” Sen. JIM RISCH (R-Idaho), the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in an interview.

    Lawmakers from both parties believe the package will get through Congress before newly elected representatives and senators arrive in Washington.

    SEND ARMED DRONES TO UKRAINE: Sixteen senators are urging the Biden administration to give Ukraine armed drones to better repel Russia’s invasion, our own LEE HUDSON reports.

    The Biden administration has been hesitant to send the drone to Ukraine due to fears that sensitive technologies aboard the aircraft may end up in Russian hands. An electro-optical/infrared ball on the Gray Eagle provides real-time intelligence, targeting and tracking. The administration was also concerned that the drone and the instruments it carries would pose too many training and logistics challenges for the Ukrainian military.

    But the bipartisan group of lawmakers, led by Sens. JONI ERNST (R-Iowa) and JOE MANCHIN (D-W.V.), say the benefits of helping Ukraine take out Russian positions outweigh the risks.

    “The MQ-1C could erode Russia’s long-range fires advantage. Most importantly, armed UAS could find and attack Russian warships in the Black Sea, breaking its coercive blockade and alleviate dual pressures on the Ukrainian economy and global food prices,” they wrote in the letter.

    The Wall Street Journal first reported on the letter.

    Broadsides

    FIRST IN NATSEC DAILY — CAMPAIGN AGAINST CHIPS IN 889: Loyal NatSec Daily readers will remember our report that two senators want to ban the federal government from acquiring products or services from Chinese chipmakers. Simply put, they want to update Section 889 in the federal code to include three Chinese firms and Chinese-made semiconductors.

    Well, the backlash to that bill by Sens. CHUCK SCHUMER (D-N.Y.) and JOHN CORNYN (R-Texas) has begun.

    “Left unaddressed, adding the covered semiconductors to part B of section 889 would harm federal agencies’ ability to procure the essential goods and services they need to promote our nation’s well-being, while putting added financial pressure on businesses that are operating in an inflationary economy,” reads a draft letter obtained by NatSec Daily. It’s signed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Aerospace Industries Association, among other groups.

    The groups are fine with the section’s Part A, which deals with the procurement of items, even though “it presents federal contractors with costly and complex compliance burdens.” Their main gripe is with Part B because it bans interactions with a contractor that “uses” a banned technology. That makes compliance much harder, they argue. “A company with both federal and nonfederal customers would be barred from selling to the government because it ‘uses’ a coffee service that ‘uses’ the covered semiconductors,” the letter reads.

    Some lawmakers in both parties told NatSec Daily they don’t fully support the Schumer-Cornyn bill because of Point B.

    The draft note, dated Nov. 22, is addressed to Sens. JACK REED (D-R.I.) and JIM INHOFE (R-Okla.), the top members of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

    Still, much of the non-government national security community is behind the chip ban out of fear China can manipulate the semiconductors for its own purposes. Some of the three companies up for a ban allegedly have ties to China’s military.

    An AIA spokesperson said of the reason for sending the letter: “We have serious concerns about the cumulative effect of well-intentioned, but burdensome regulations that could drive small businesses out of the industrial base.”

    U.S. and Russia ‘can’t stop’ Turkey’s new Syria incursion By ALEXANDER WARD, MATT BERG and LAWRENCE UKENYE 11/22/2022 03:59 PM EST Syrian Kurds attend a funeral of people killed in Turkish airstrikes.

Turkey is threatening to kill more U.S.-allied Kurdish fighters in Syria — and the United States and Russia might not try very hard to stop it. Turkish President RECEP TAYYIP ERDOÄžAN vowed to soon launch a ground attack on U.S.-backed Kurdish forces in northern Syria, claiming they were responsible for a deadly terrorist attack last week. “We have been bearing down on terrorists for a few days with our planes, cannons and guns,” ErdoÄŸan said Tuesday, alluding to Turkey’s recent lethal aerial bombardments in Syria. “God willing, we will root out all of them as soon as possible, together with our tanks, our soldiers.” It’s unclear if it was Kurdish separatists who killed six people in the heart of Istanbul on Nov. 13. The Kurds deny the allegation, after all. But experts say it has presented ErdoÄŸan with a pretext to delve deeper into northern Syria, a push he’s long wanted to do. “Turkey is quite serious about the current Syria offensive,” the Middle East Institute’s and St. Lawrence University’s HOWARD EISSENSTAT told NatSec Daily. “This fits with both long-standing Turkish assumptions about its security interests and ErdoÄŸan’s need to look strong in advance of elections scheduled for June.

  • Lifestyle and home remedies
    These self-care habits can help you manage dermatitis and feel better:

    Moisturize your skin. Routinely applying a moisturizer can help your skin.
    Use anti-inflammation and anti-itch products. Hydrocortisone cream might temporarily relieve your symptoms. Oral antihistamines, such as diphenhydramine, may help reduce itching. These types of products are available without a prescription.
    Apply a cool wet cloth. This helps soothe your skin.
    Take a comfortably warm bath. Sprinkle your bathwater with baking soda or a finely ground oatmeal that's made for the bathtub (colloidal oatmeal). Soak for 5 to 10 minutes, pat dry and apply unscented moisturizer while your skin is still damp. A lotion of 12% ammonium lactate or 10% alpha-hydroxy acid helps with flaky, dry skin.
    Use medicated shampoos. For dandruff, use OTC shampoos containing selenium sulfide, zinc pyrithione, coal tar or ketoconazole.
    Take a dilute bleach bath. This may help people with severe atopic dermatitis by decreasing the bacteria on the skin. For a dilute bleach bath, add 1/2 cup (about 118 milliliters) of household bleach, not concentrated bleach, to a 40-gallon (about 151-liter) bathtub filled with warm water. Measures are for a U.S. standard-sized tub filled to the overflow drainage holes. Soak for 5 to 10 minutes and rinse off before patting dry. Do this 2 to 3 times a week.

    Many people have had success using a dilute vinegar bath rather than a bleach bath. Add 1 cup (about 236 milliliters) of vinegar to a bathtub filled with warm water.

    Avoid rubbing and scratching. Cover the itchy area with a dressing if you can't keep from scratching it. Trim your nails and wear gloves at night.
    Choose mild laundry detergent. Because your clothes, sheets and towels touch your skin, choose mild, unscented laundry products.
    Avoid known irritants or allergens. Try to identify and remove allergens and other factors in your environment that irritate your skin. Avoid rough and scratchy clothing.
    Manage your stress. Emotional stressors can cause some types of dermatitis to flare. Consider trying stress management techniques such as relaxation or biofeedback.
    Alternative medicine
    Many alternative therapies, including those listed below, have helped some people manage their dermatitis. But evidence for their effectiveness is mixed. And sometimes herbal and traditional remedies cause irritation or an allergic reaction.

    Dietary supplements, such as vitamin D and probiotics, for atopic dermatitis
    Rice bran broth (applied to the skin), for atopic dermatitis
    5% tea tree oil shampoo, for dandruff
    Aloe, for seborrheic dermatitis
    Chinese herbal therapy
    If you're considering dietary supplements or other alternative therapies, talk with your doctor about their pros and cons.

    Preparing for your appointment
    You may first bring your concerns to the attention of your family doctor. Or you may see a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions (dermatologist).

    Here's some information to help you get ready for your appointment and know what to expect from your doctor.

    What you can do
    Before your appointment, list your answers to the following questions:

    What are your symptoms, and when did they start?
    Does anything seem to trigger your symptoms?
    What medications are you taking, including those you take by mouth as well as creams or ointments that you apply to your skin?
    Do you have a family history of allergies or asthma?
    What treatments have you tried so far? Has anything helped?
    What to expect from your doctor
    Your doctor is likely to ask you a number of questions. Being ready to answer them may reserve time to go over any points you want to talk about in depth. Depending on what type of dermatitis you have, your doctor may ask:

    Do your symptoms come and go, or are they fairly constant?
    How often do you shower or bathe?
    What products do you use on your skin, including soaps, lotions and cosmetics?
    What household cleaning products do you use?
    Are you exposed to any possible irritants from your job or hobbies?
    Have you been under any unusual stress or depressed lately?
    How much do your symptoms affect your quality of life, including your ability to sleep?

    These self-care habits can help you manage dermatitis and feel
    Lifestyle and home remedies These self-care habits can help you manage dermatitis and feel better: Moisturize your skin. Routinely applying a moisturizer can help your skin. Use anti-inflammation and anti-itch products. Hydrocortisone cream might temporarily relieve your symptoms. Oral antihistamines, such as diphenhydramine, may help reduce itching. These types of products are available without a prescription. Apply a cool wet cloth. This helps soothe your skin. Take a comfortably warm bath. Sprinkle your bathwater with baking soda or a finely ground oatmeal that's made for the bathtub (colloidal oatmeal). Soak for 5 to 10 minutes, pat dry and apply unscented moisturizer while your skin is still damp. A lotion of 12% ammonium lactate or 10% alpha-hydroxy acid helps with flaky, dry skin. Use medicated shampoos. For dandruff, use OTC shampoos containing selenium sulfide, zinc pyrithione, coal tar or ketoconazole. Take a dilute bleach bath. This may help people with severe atopic dermatitis by decreasing the bacteria on the skin. For a dilute bleach bath, add 1/2 cup (about 118 milliliters) of household bleach, not concentrated bleach, to a 40-gallon (about 151-liter) bathtub filled with warm water. Measures are for a U.S. standard-sized tub filled to the overflow drainage holes. Soak for 5 to 10 minutes and rinse off before patting dry. Do this 2 to 3 times a week. Many people have had success using a dilute vinegar bath rather than a bleach bath. Add 1 cup (about 236 milliliters) of vinegar to a bathtub filled with warm water. Avoid rubbing and scratching. Cover the itchy area with a dressing if you can't keep from scratching it. Trim your nails and wear gloves at night. Choose mild laundry detergent. Because your clothes, sheets and towels touch your skin, choose mild, unscented laundry products. Avoid known irritants or allergens. Try to identify and remove allergens and other factors in your environment that irritate your skin. Avoid rough and scratchy clothing. Manage your stress. Emotional stressors can cause some types of dermatitis to flare. Consider trying stress management techniques such as relaxation or biofeedback. Alternative medicine Many alternative therapies, including those listed below, have helped some people manage their dermatitis. But evidence for their effectiveness is mixed. And sometimes herbal and traditional remedies cause irritation or an allergic reaction. Dietary supplements, such as vitamin D and probiotics, for atopic dermatitis Rice bran broth (applied to the skin), for atopic dermatitis 5% tea tree oil shampoo, for dandruff Aloe, for seborrheic dermatitis Chinese herbal therapy If you're considering dietary supplements or other alternative therapies, talk with your doctor about their pros and cons. Preparing for your appointment You may first bring your concerns to the attention of your family doctor. Or you may see a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions (dermatologist). Here's some information to help you get ready for your appointment and know what to expect from your doctor. What you can do Before your appointment, list your answers to the following questions: What are your symptoms, and when did they start? Does anything seem to trigger your symptoms? What medications are you taking, including those you take by mouth as well as creams or ointments that you apply to your skin? Do you have a family history of allergies or asthma? What treatments have you tried so far? Has anything helped? What to expect from your doctor Your doctor is likely to ask you a number of questions.

  • Not surprised the Nazis are at it again with their nonsense. They create a gruesome game showing guards in Nazi uniforms and people going to concentration camps. Tons of dead corps are viewed and these are the same people that say they are the victims. They say everyone else is evil other than they, claim Adolf Hitler was a hero trying to put an end to perversion such a communism and the repugnant adult industry which they blamed the Jews in general for which is nonsense. They promote a denial of concentration camps and that the Holocaust never happened????♂️
    They are so righteous according to them, yet they have been caught impersonating different racial groups in order to cause war and arguments between people of the same ethnicity to quarrel.
    For example, they have tried on many occasions to get Right leaning Jews to fight against left leaning Jews in Israel to cause tensions via fake social media accounts showing lefty Jews of being proud Jews because of people such as Jeffrey Epstein and making it seem as if lefty Jews support criminals such as Epstein and many others.
    They accuse Jewish people of morphing to White people in Social Media and everywhere else and they feel entitled to do the same. Very few Jewish people care about Nazis or the KKK today. Nazis are the ones reliving something that most of them weren't even part of, and many religious people feel it was condemnation from God because most of us were living in rebellion to God's commands. I don't know of any Jewish person that hates White people. Not saying they do not exist, I'm just saying someone that hates someone else because of his race is not a person that lives the Torah and is rebelling against God himself.

  • A new, more effective and better way to detect Cooties through an eye exam has been invented in Israel and will replace the highly ineffective Nasal Assault. Hopefully American Cooties Businesses don't take this and start trying to test healthy people everyday or week for Cooties considering people as myself cannot participate in the deception of agreeing to be sick when we aren't sick. God has put a mechanism in us to detect when we are sick, and boy do we know that we are sick when we really are. It's called Symptoms.

  • U.S. And Russia ‘Can’t Stop’ Turkey’s New Syria Incursion

    Turkey is threatening to kill more U.S.-allied Kurdish fighters in Syria — and the United States and Russia might not try very hard to stop it.

    Turkish President Erdgodan vowed to soon launch a ground attack on U.S.-backed Kurdish forces in northern Syria, claiming they were responsible for a deadly terrorist attack last week.

    It’s unclear if it was Kurdish separatists who killed six people in the heart of Istanbul on Nov. 13. The Kurds deny the allegation, after all. But experts say it has presented ErdoÄŸan with a pretext to delve deeper into northern Syria, a push he’s long wanted to do.

    “Turkey is quite serious about the current Syria offensive,” the Middle East Institute’s and St. Lawrence University’s HOWARD EISSENSTAT told NatSec Daily. “This fits with both long-standing Turkish assumptions about its security interests and ErdoÄŸan’s need to look strong in advance of elections scheduled for June. Under the current circumstances, Russia or the U.S. might be able to impose limits on Turkish actions, but they can’t stop them entirely.”

    Both Russia and America have reasons to be worried about Turkey launching a ground attack.

    Russia backs Syrian President BASHAR AL-ASSAD while Turkey supports rebels seeking to topple him. “We understand and respect Turkey’s concerns about ensuring its own security,” Kremlin spokesperson DMITRY PESKOV told reporters. “At the same time, we call on all parties to refrain from steps that could lead to the destabilization of the overall situation.”

    The U.S. may not resist too strongly since it wants Turkey, a NATO ally, to accept Sweden and Finland’s accession to the alliance. Cagaptay said a Monday State Department statement that barely lambasted Turkey over the violence in Syria was evidence of Washington’s light approach. “I can’t recall any statement that nicely worded about Turkey’s incursion into Syria in a long time,” he said.

    And Russia is providing millions for Turkey’s economy and energy sector, propping up ErdoÄŸan ahead of next year’s vote. In exchange, experts say ErdoÄŸan may finally accept Assad as Syria’s legitimate ruler, effectively bringing an end to what remains of the war in Syria.

    If that’s the case, it seems the U.S. and Russia may stand aside as Turkey kills more Kurds — and American allies — in Syria.
