Byzantine at heart, the Rising Ottoman is planning to…
Certain news create nostalgia for the times in which governments censored almost everything. Back then, one was spared the insulting attempts to manipulate public opinion by sheer lies told by governments. Yesterday, June 22, 2012, an American-made Phantom F-4 jet in service of the Turkish army was downed by Syrian air defense systems. Subsequently, the plane crashed into the Mediterranean Sea. Today, Saturday, the Turkish and Syrian navies are still searching for the two pilots in a friendly show of cooperation. Until this point, all the events were admitted by all sides. In a formal statement, Turkey President Abdullah Gul said that the fighter jet had crossed the border into Syria, and then he added that the Turkish government could not ignore the fact that Syria had shot down a Turkish aircraft; implying possible Turkish answers to the event. He didn’t mention Syria’s right of self-defense. Almost every word was expected; but then, Mr. Gul added a very odd statement.
Phantom F-4 in Turkish Service
“It is routine for jet fighters to sometimes fly in and out over borders… when you consider their speed over the sea,” Mr. Gul said. I must agree with him that fighter jets fly fast; the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom involved in this event can reach a top speed of over Mach 2.2. Yet, it has an advanced navigation system, and is capable of incredibly complex maneuvers, like landing with astonishing exactitude. This aircraft seldom misses a landing strip, regardless its narrowness. A landing strip is geometrically identical to a border; there is no reason why such a fighter would have troubles finding it. Moreover, as a fighter, it can make high-speed maneuvers in order to intercept—or escape from—an enemy aircraft. Sometimes, this is done with a precision of inches, as it had been shown on endless documentaries analyzing such events. Yet, this state-of-the-art fighter made yesterday a very clumsy incursion into Syria’s Latakia Governorate, as the map below shows. It made a loop that began and ended tragically in the Mediterranean Sea; flying miles over Syrian territory. With all the sympathy to Mr. Gul, his description of the event as an error is unacceptable. Another point of interest I want to mention before attempting to analyze Mr. Gul’s goals, is that Turkey uses upgraded Phantoms. They were improved in 1995 by Israel’s IAI and are known as F-4E 2020 Terminator; they are used massively in the suppression of the Kurd uprising in Eastern Turkey.
Turkish Phantom Trajectory | According to Syrian News Agency
A Turkish fighter entered Syrian airspace uninvited and was shot down by an almost automatic air defense system. Syria owns one of the most sophisticated such systems in the Middle East; it regularly upgrades it with Russian equipment. All its neighbors know that; thus such a deep incursion by a single fighter without previous notice can only be defined as a wild provocation. Mr. Gul and the Turkish Army wanted a downed aircraft. Technically, now they have an excuse to reciprocate. Overall, this is a slight variation on a classical false flag attack; call it “clumsy flag attack” if you want.
The Rising Ottoman is Byzantine at its heart; the most obvious reason for its sacrificing a fighter is almost for sure not the main one. After almost 18 months of civil war, Syria is at the verge of being sliced by NATO supported forces. It is difficult to look at what is happening nowadays between Turkey and Syria and not to recognize that Turkey is returning to its historical role as a colonial power. It is openly supporting a rebel Syrian group. It supports the establishment of security zones for Syrian refugees inside Syrian territory. Until now, it claimed this should be done as part of an international force under UN mandate; however, it has also declared that it may have to act on its own if the Syrian uprising threatens its national security. Turkey is part of NATO, the North Atlantic Alliance, which attacked and practically destroyed Libya last year (see Media Manipulation, Libya and Western Lies). Turkey spearheading NATO attacks on Syria in an attempt to provoke the last to react and then justify a subsequent brutal reaction by NATO is a credible scenario. Yet, this is unlikely to be Gul’s goal. Turkey is not interested in an occupied Syria being controlled from Brussels. Why should Turkey share its colonial cake?
“Elementary, Dr. Watson!”
The trajectory of the abovementioned fighter is of enormous interest, since it pinpointed Turkey’s main interest. It flew just south of Hatay. In 1938, Hatay—a small territory on the Mediterranean coast—became independent from the French mandate of Syria as the Republic of Hatay. Following a referendum in 1939, Hatay decided to join Turkey, forming the singular panhandle shape that can be seen on the maps of Turkey. Syria still doesn’t recognize that event as legitimate. In the last year, this area had regained strategic importance after the break-up of the Turkish-Israeli alliance due to the Freedom Flotilla Affair. This break-up is shaping the exploitation of the newly discovered gas reservoirs in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. In Greece’s Fadeaway: Iran and Israel Battle over Cyprus, I analyzed the new regional alliances fighting over the large reservoirs of gas (and more, see Gas, Oil … Uranium) in the eastern side of the Mediterranean Sea. In November 2011, Cyprus announced it would explore its undersea natural gas wells in cooperation with Israel; this was the trigger for Netanyahu’s visit to the island in February 2012. The agreements announced between the countries—including military ones—indicate that Israel has shifted its main ally in the area from Turkey to Cyprus. Turkey has announced that it would not allow underwater drills in Cypriot waters, clearly citing military preventative actions. The Turkish intervention is the result of Cyprus being divided between the Republic of Cyprus in the south and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. Thus, two clear bands had been created around the gas field issue: Turkey-Lebanon-Northern Cyprus-Iran, and Israel-Cyprus. Later on, in April, Greece joined the Israeli led alliance; this is important since Greece is a major worldwide player in oil transport. The USA—technically Turkey’s ally in NATO—has conducted the “Noble Dina” military drill with Israel and Greece in the gas fields area. Led by the U.S. Sixth Fleet, Noble Dina involves simulations of combat against submarines, air battles and protection of offshore natural gas platforms. What will NATO do if a war erupts between these two alliances? Both alliances have announced that the gas fields are casus belli. In June 2012, Israel announced the beginning of a feasibility study regarding artificial islands that would facilitate its control over the fields. Considering this, the Turkish provocation acquires an additional dimension that clearly transcend NATO.
Lebanon and Northern Cyprus are Turkey’s actual access points to the gas fields. Turkey would like to expand its access to the Mediterranean Sea, as well as to facilitate its communications and transport with Lebanon, which in the next years may become a regional power replacing the troubled Syria. The provocation of the fighter remains a provocation under this scenario, but its goals slightly shifts. Slicing Syria in order to annex the Latakia Governorate to Turkey—as it was done with Hatay in the past—will open a land corridor between Turkey and Lebanon as well as increase Turkey’s access to the gas fields. Byzantine at heart, the Rising Ottoman is planning to renew its historical empire.
As another fascist Franco takes the stage in the world conflict
of greed versus social justice I write this report from Venezuela
as a member of diverse research delegation of seven women from the USA who are visiting Venezuela to listen to the Venezuelan people about their lives in the new Bolivarian Republic.
We are here to see and experience the lush and busy capital of Caracas and satellite cities. We represent faculty and students from Northeastern Illinois University Justice Studies program and board and staff members of the Alternative Education Research Institute which provides research and programs focused on those formerly incarcerated re-entering communities in the USA.
Our primary research interests are the social and economic reforms of the Bolivarian Republic underthe leadership of Hugo Chavez with a specific interest in how these innovations impact the lives of indigenous first nation peoples, African-Venezuelans and women.
My first informal but intense political discussions have been with a middle-class 26 year old African-Venezuelan male track professional, an upper class 24 year old woman whose family owns a clothing store and our guide, a middle class professional in tourism who also has a law degree. We are staying at a hotel in Barlovento, Venezuela, a town whose colonial history centers on the cocoa and banana plantations of slavery and colonialism. This is where the African-Venezuelan festival annually celebrates liberation combined with African and Colonial religions honoring San Juan.
This country is incredibly lush and green and busy and once people learn a bit about who we are the discussion turns immediately to crime and the youth and the Venezuelan government’s new mission aimed at combating Venezuela’s problem with citizen insecurity and crime – considered a critical issue by the majority of Venezuelans who often cite crime as one of their primary concerns in polls. According to Minister of Justice and Internal Affairs, Tareck El-Aissami, the new mission is centered on a policy of prevention, the creation of new values, addressing social exclusion and rehabilitation. According to the young athlete I with whom I talked who summarized the problem as a policy of the Chavez government dividing people against each other he expressed a belief that racism has increased with the rhetoric of inclusion and exclusion. He said that many of his black friends and family have been killed directly because of the hyperbolic attention to race and class divisions. Echoing the young man’s point of view our guide is also critical of the government for supposedly ignoring the issue of crime in Venezuela and being too “soft” on violent crime. He also cited the majority of crimes committed by youth and pointed out on our trip out of Caracas to Barlevento the youth acting out on motor cycles and cars on the road in a traffic jam caused by an accident as they forced traffic to move so their funeral procession could turn around on the highway. However, the government maintains, and I agree, that the opposition and those expressing this opinion have a “reactionary” stance to the issue as they are seduced by capitalism and accept the models of punishment of the poor to protect the rich and “wanna be” rich.
The focus of the new government “Venezuela Full of Life” mission is restorative and preventative according to officials in an effort to reduce the risks of young people who unfortunately end up resorting to street crime. The mission is one more effort in a series of measures and political strategies implementing tactics in a nation wide campaign. Yet while the official sources say that the Bolivarian police are founded on a new model of policing with recruits working directly with communities and receiving classes on human rights have decreased the crime rate by 57% my young informant says the police are completely corrupt and easily bribed and these statistics are lies fabricated by the government. He said that the only believable press is the opposition press.
While pointing out the new rows of government housing for the poor our guide discusses the laws passed last Friday, by Chavez. A series of 11 far-reaching laws relating to communal government, tourism and housing the pros and cons of which are a major topic of our discussions. Our guide approves of the social equality programs and socialist efforts ending inequalities but changing the name and colors of the country was over the top for him. One of the new laws, entitled “Law for Community Management of Functions, Services and other Powers,” opens the door for organized communities to have greater responsibility in the running of local life and access to more direct funding from the government. In our visit to a Women’s Center in Higuerote, Venezuela today we are sure to hear more about these programs from the perspectives of working class and poor women.
Of serious concern for social justice advocates in Latin America today is the unconstitutional ousting of President Fernando Lugo from office. The right wing lower house of the Paraguayan Congress moved fast to impeach Lugo on Thursday in a coup. The right wing majority used clashes last week in Curuguatay in which 11 farmers and six police officers were killed as an excuse to legally blame him of mishandling the conflict. The Senate opened his trial on Friday and quickly reached a guilty verdict, ousting Lugo. Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa announced that his government would not recognize another Franco as president“, referring to Frederico Franco, a name remembered historically for the fascist dictator of Spain. The government of Ecuador will not recognize any president of Paraguay other than Fernando Lugo,” said Correa, adding “true democracy is based on legality and legitimacy.” Vice-president Elias Jaua described the attempt by the Chamber of Deputies of Paraguay to topple President Fernando Lugo as a new attack sourcing from the bourgeoisie and the United States. During a ceremony to deliver resources to the state of Miranda, Jaua denounced the sectors trying to weaken the South American revolutionary process.
“The battle of the Paraguayan people is that of the Venezuelans, and we are committed to thwart this new attempt by the oligarchies and imperialism as we did in Venezuela in 2002, and also when they tried to topple Evo Morales (Bolivia) and Rafael Correa (Ecuador),” he said. In Jaua’s opinion, it is all about the struggle of the peoples and governments so that the will of the peoples of the region is respected and about “letting imperialism know that our Latin America is no longer their backyard,” he said.
“Here we have a people and a government ready to defend the sovereignty and independence of all the countries in the region,” stressed Jaua.
The celebrations we attend this weekend start today and are dedicated to Saint John the Baptist. They are a mix of Carnival, Christianity, Paganism for three days during the summer solstice to pay homage to the Saint and to celebrate this holiday and tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation for more than three centuries of festivals for the Afro-Venezuelan communities from Barlovento and Yaracuy.
“During the time of slavery, in Venezuela, for three days in June, Venezuela’s slaves where allowed off. Three days during the San Juan Festival to do whatever they pleased. Three days to celebrate, to plan revolts, to flirt and make love: the sensuality of the dance, the power of the drums and the song, the emotion- for three days. “So” they said “we had better make the most of it, because it will soon be over.” The spirit has not been lost.” (Michael Fox)

Very Interesting Must watch!
On the 18th and 19th of June 2012 Iran and the P5+1 met in Moscow to discuss Iran’s nuclear program yet again. The participants sat down to talk 4 times in those two days, but the results could be summed up in one sentence. The talks will continue in Istanbul on the 3rd of July, and it’ll be the nuclear experts doing the talking. The talks hit a brick wall when Iran was asked to halt its nuclear activities in view if the resolutions passed against the Islamic Republic by the UN Security Council. Iran responded by saying it would only participate in negotiations that are based on the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty, not UN resolutions.
The NPT gives all its member states, one of which is Iran, the right to peaceful nuclear technology, and the right to enrich uranium to 20 percent. In the talks Iran once again, called on the P5+1 to recognize Iran’s right to peaceful nuclear technology. Both sides stuck to their guns unwaveringly, and the only thing that saved the proceedings from being labeled a total failure was them agreeing to further talks in Istanbul. In the end Catherin Ashton and Saeed Jalili met the press, to report the results. Ashton said the P5+1 had asked Iran to suspend uranium enrichment to 20 %, close down it’s fordo nuclear plant, and ship the uranium it had already enriched to 20 % out of the country. She said the group would accept these steps as trust-building measures.

It is revealed by American magazine Wired in May 2012, that the American Army teaches its officers to “Use ‘Hiroshima’ tactics for a ‘total war’ on Islam”. The course teaches officers there is no such thing as moderate Islam and that they should consider Islam their enemy. It advocated taking war to civilian populations using similar tactics as used in Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well possible nuclear attacks on the holy cities of Mecca and Medina and the wiping out civilian populations. The teaching material also suggests that there is no such thing as the moderate Islam and concludes “It is therefore time for the United States to make our true intentions clear. This barbaric ideology will no longer be tolerated. Islam must change or we will facilitate its self-destruction.”
The Pentagon has confirmed the course material obtained by the magazine is authentic. The report says the officer who delivered the lectures, still maintains his position at the Norfolk, Virginia College, pending an investigation. It is not clear that how much of the similar material has been taught in the US Army. What is alarming according to BBC is that all those commanders, captains and colonels must have sat through the course and not felt anything unusual. It brings into question the validity of claims that killing at least 16 Afghan civilians by a US soldier was an isolated incident. This week’s Islam and Life asks: Should the world be worried about the emerging “total war ideology” against Islam?
Demand from Croatia to admit WWII crimes before joining European Union
For a second I was so puzzled that I opened timeanddate.com just to make sure that today was June 22, 2012. Yet, the interview I had just read in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz seemed taken from the 1950s. Yesterday, former Under Secretary of State Stuart E. Eizenstat—who served in the Clinton Administration—told the newspaper that the EU must encourage Croatia and Serbia to take responsibility for their roles in the Holocaust before granting them EU membership. His name is little known, but Mr. Eizenstat negotiated agreements with Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France, and other European countries with regard to restitution of property, compensation for slavery, recovery of looted art and bank accounts, and payment of insurance policies for Holocaust victims. He was also the American ambassador to the EU between 1993 and 1996. In other words, we are speaking with a formal expert on the issue; moreover, Haaretz is known in Israel as the Voice of the Shin Beth. In other words, the interview was a thinly disguised exposition of the official American-Israeli policy. Expectedly, the Israeli newspaper—for reasons to be explained—emphasized Croatia. The encounter took place during the President’s Conference in Jerusalem; despite the Croatian President being also present, Haaretz found an excuse to avoid an interview with the current expiatory goat of Israel. Even the Israeli journalist was aware of the atrocity he and the distinguished American gentleman had committed.
Croatia’s President Ivo Josipovic issued in February 2012 an apology for his country’s role in the crimes committed against the Jews during the Second World War. Of course, the Republic of Croatia became independent only in 1991, many years after the WWII ended; this was not an obstacle for Israel and the USA, which greedily accepted the apology. Mr. Eizenstat told Haaretz “it is time for Croatia to commence a restitution program and the formation of an independent commission of international scholars to examine the country’s wartime past.” Israel claims that 30,000 of Croatia’s Jews died during the Holocaust, which is 80% of the country’s Jewish population at the time. “Now is the time for the European Union to exact the maximum amount of leverage,” said the distinguished American, and then added “once they’re in, the leverage is lost.” Croatia is expected to become a full member of the EU in 2013, thus the USA and Israel have no time to lose if they expect to profit from the event.
The other accused party was Serbia, which expects to become a full member of the EU in 2014. Israel claims that 14,500 Jews died in Serbia during the Holocaust. Any other mention of Serbia was banned in the published interview. That wasn’t casual. Israel is a quiet ally of Serbia; it even militarily helped Serbia even when the latter was committing genocides in the 1990s. The silent pact goes back to WWII, when Jewish groups helped Serbia and attacked Croatia. In recent times this pact received another dimension. Israel doesn’t recognize Kosovo, which declared independence from Serbia. On July 22, 2010, the International Court of Justice ruled against Serbia on its claim that Kosovo’s secession was illegal. ICJ President Hisashi Owada said that international law “contains no applicable prohibition of Kosovo’s declaration of independence. Accordingly, [the court] concludes that the declaration of independence on 17 February 2008 did not violate general international law.” In exchange for Israel’s support, Serbia is not too friendly towards Palestine.
I apologize to the Honorable Mr. Eizenstat, but his strategy, succinctly summarized by him as “once they’re in, the leverage is lost,” is nothing but an extortion attempt. Extortion is a crime which occurs when money, property, or services are obtained from somebody through coercion. The extortionist refrain from doing harm is called protection, or “Vitamin P” in Israel. The difference between extortion and robbery is that extortion involves a written or verbal threat whereas robbery can occur without any verbal or written threat. Mr. Eizenstat, your implied threat to deny Croatia membership in the EU was a crime.
But, the victims deserve compensation!
Mr. Eizenstat and your Israeli allies, you are right. Victims of violence deserve compensation. They deserve to see their violators in jail. They deserve to enjoy the rule of law. But that applies also to the victims of the USA and Israel. You cannot punish criminals associated to a regime you loath, but spare criminals associated to regimes you like. Otherwise you violate the principle of equality among people. Can you follow this complex logic, Honorable Mr. Eizenstat?
In American Led Apocalypse I analyzed the intrinsic violence of the USA. That article included a downloadable excel file named American Military Operations, which contains a partial list of military operations performed by the United States of America since its foundation. It doesn’t include the violent massacres on Native Americans committed by the illegitimate British colonies that became the USA. It doesn’t include an unknown number of classified operations that were never acknowledged by this violent government. It doesn’t include the violence of this government towards its citizens. It doesn’t include operations performed around the world by subservient governments (like Israel and the CAZAB countries) in the name of the noble American Empire. Yet, the list includes over 500 operations! Today, I just want to mention two of them, the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in which the USA assassinated children, women and elders without distinction. Within the first four months of the bombings, the radiation killed 90,000–166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000–80,000 in Nagasaki. Half of the deaths occurred on the first day. How does this compare to the abovementioned Croatian and Serbian events? Mr. Eizenstat, did you ever considered imposing sanctions on the USA until it properly compensates the victims? Not only did your country not compensate them, but it continued performing savage medical studies on the survivors. Documentaries on the topic—many produced by your country—are chilling, and easily compare to the Nazi Dr. Mengele (see Israel’s Eugenics Program: Dr. Mengele Blues).
Mr. Netanyahu, don’t feel joyous for my criticizing the USA. You are not better. You cry about the Nazi injustices, but you pay no attention to yours. Israel creates Palestinian victims day and night; including the barbaric slaughter of children. Let me bring just one case. On December 8, 1983, an extremely dangerous Palestinian terrorist was killed by an Israeli sniper in Nablus. Yosef Harnoi, a settler from Eilon Moreh, assassinated an eight-year-old girl called Aisha Adnan Al-Bahsh. He wounded her sister as well. Aisha was in her hometown. Mr. Harnoi was a settler ignoring and violating international law. On October 2, 1985, he was convicted by the Tel Aviv district court of manslaughter and was also found guilty of causing the girl’s sister grievous bodily harm. He was sentenced to a mere ten years imprisonment and a five-month suspended sentence. The murder claim was rejected on grounds of his alleged epilepsy. He—like all male settlers—had been trained by the army, held a position in the settlements’ military protection system, and most important of all, was given gun and ammunitions by the IDF. The government and the army were content with the light punishment. Aisha couldn’t react to the sentence and her family was never indemnified for the crime. The indemnification issue is very important. Only if the political and military leaders face the reality of indemnifying their victims and see their war-profits diminish, only then will these crimes in Israel end. Israel consistently refuses to pay damages to Arab victims for its actions. However, in 1952, the young State of Israel signed the Reparations Agreement with Germany, in which Germany agreed to indemnify the WWII victims.
Time and again, the State of Israel shows discrimination between humans, despite its claims of being a democracy. Israel prides itself on its morality, on its superiority on these grounds when compared to regimes like the Nazi’s. However, it is a society that discriminates in how it delivers punishment. A Palestinian causing similar damage to a Jewish girl would have been lynched on the spot by the self-righteous mob or put in prison for life. But justice in Israel is relative. Maybe that’s why Albert Einstein was offered the presidency of the state in the 1950’s; morally, he refused. Oddly, he lived then in the USA, a country which is equally immoral. As time goes by, we tend to forget the victims; history is the story of the victorious—and often violating—army. Croatia and Serbia are now in a position to make a point here; they can accept engaging in a restoration process, conditioning it on a similar one for Israel and the USA. Justice must exist for all, don’t you agree with that, Mr. Eizenstat?
While Alice Walker has refused to have her book “The Color Purple “ republished in Hebrew for the reason that Israel is an Apartheid State applying racist policies ,the BDS -that seeks the cultural and academic boycott of Israel and to which Walker caters- seems to have won another victory. We are supposed –by now- to have grown familiar with the BDS-ie the NGOs and their ways of projecting the South African model on the Palestinian situation giving Israel the chance to become a legal state instead of a usurper state, and giving a happy ending to the Palestinian plight by marrying Palestine to Israel.
The story behind Walker’s statement and position is unclear , and whether she turned down a request from the Israeli publishing house or took the initiative herself to rekindle the matter and blow some life into her literary career and that of the BDS. In all cases the BDS people seem to be on a trip of some sort and they are not acting alone, they have states and governments behind them among the most powerful , and institutions among the strongest and businessmen among the fiercest that will assure the globalization of the Palestinian cause.
The anti Apartheid policy itself-as it was conceived for South Africa- was not such a success, it was a substitute to the real revolution that should have happened and restored fully the rights of the original people ; instead we ended up with a semi revolution where the blacks were granted rights that did not really benefit them , in addition to the fact that Mandela linked the country to the global economy which caused great mischief .This was an aborted revolution with a pseudo revolutionary called Mandela who could not wait to become a big star .
The world establishment is definitely seeking to liquidate the Palestinian cause and for this nothing seems better than the kind of NGOs linked to the world order which will gradually and surely take over and seek solutions that fits Israel and the world order . It is the Palestinian cause itself that seems to be divested and sanctioned- not to say hijacked -at the hands of BDS and similar NGOs who -under the attractive label of denouncing and exposing Israel -are confiscating the cause to sell it to the highest bid .
It is one single battle from South Africa to Palestine passing by Syria and Iraq , and it is a clear battle between colonialist oppressors and colonized , and there is only one formula : that of armed struggle. Israel needs to be removed and Palestine needs to be liberated and this is what we must hear and see and achieve , and not the kind of global circus run by misleading NGO’s who aim at consecrating the state of Israel .
