Fascinating report from Keiser on peer-to peer currencies and the end of central banking. Less hysterical than his previous burning bankers rants. Stacey Herbet makes the perfect anchor for Max’s autistic tantrums.
In this episode, Max Keiser and co-host, Stacy Herbert, discuss market participating rally monkeys, market regulating surrender monkeys, economic policy making suicide monkeys and Greek ministry website hacking cheeky monkeys. In the second half of the show, Max talks to David Hales about ending top down Central Bank imposed financial and economic systems with peer to peer economics.
We grow up watching James Bond films imagining how glamourous and how just ever- so-slightly dangerous life as a British Government spy might be.
The story of Reda Hassaine in the Daily Mail today seems very short on yachts, jet skis and gorgeous women, in fact it is a tale of deep betrayal both by Reza Hassaine of his Muslim brothers and by the British government who hired him but who, according to him, dropped him “like a hot stone”.
Reda Hassaine was recruited by MI5 and also worked for Scotland Yard’s Special Branch when presumably, because of his ability to speak Arabic, he was sent to spy on Abu Qatada. Despite the fact that Reda Hassaine reported regularly to MI5 writing nightly reports on Abu Qatada for two years, in actual fact Abu Qatada has never been charged with any crime in the U.K. The guilty verdict arrived at by a Jordanian court against Abu Qatada is considered unsound due to the fact that the Jordanians are known to use information gained under torture. For this reason the European Court of Human Rights ruled that Britain can not deport Abu Qatada.
Mr Hassaine wrote nightly reports for MI5 on the activities of Qatada and his followers – even stealing documents from them – in exchange for expenses of just £380 each month.
Reza Hassaine was rumbled by Abu Qatada’s body guards who he alleges beat him up and he even lost several teeth, in return for his nightly reports and years of spying MI5 told him he couldn’t even go to the hospital for fear of their operation being compromised, clearly spies are totally expendable for the British Security Services. I really wonder at Muslims or indeed anyone who agrees to spy and live in a murky world of deception but it looks like money is a strong incentive as Reza Hassaine is now going to sue MI5 for a million pounds. Was it worth it?
Muslims are the target of spies at every level with the Government’s “Prevent” strategy requesting Universities to spy on Muslim students, spies being sent into mosques, undercover police pretending to be Muslims to infiltrate peoples homes and mosques and even Muslims asked to report on each other.
I include a link here to something a sister in Islam wrote about this very issue at the time it became public so that the Islamic viewpoint on spying can be known. Spying on fellow Muslims is clearly prohibited in Islam.
