Im Solde des PNAC, für faschistische Kriege: Hillary Clinton ist in Ankara um Terroristen mit Waffen auszustatten
Die Amerikaner brauchen mehr Tode, wobei die Türkei eine mehr wie dubiose Rolle spielt, welche sogar die Türkei langfristig gefährdet.
Hinter all diesen Kriegs Aufrufen seit dem Kosovo Krieg, stehen unverändert die Robert Kagan Gestalten des PNAC.
Seine Ehefrau Victoria Nuland , ist sogar Beraterin von Hillary Clinton, so das man diese oft dämlichen Lügen und Ausführungen von Hillary Clinton besser verstehen kann. Die Einfältigikeit dieser Leute wäre normal peinlich, aber ist hoch verbrecherisch und 100 mal schlimmer als was die Nazis inzenierten. Die Methoden sind immer gleich: Erst werden solche Resolutionen ausgetüfelt und unterschrieben, denn Krieg ist das Geschäft der US Politik. Jeder Präsident, braucht seine Kriege.

U.S. DELEGATION HEADS TO TURKEY TO DISCUSS SYRIA
A delegation from the U.S. State Department will be arriving in Istanbul on Wednesday to begin a first round of talks with the Turkish government geared towards coordinating increased help for the Syrian opposition.
U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton said on Aug. 11 that Washington and Turkey were looking at all measures to help the insurgents, including a no-fly zone. Clinton had told reporters after talks with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu that their countries needed to get into detailed operational planning on how to assist the rebels and bring a halt to the violence. Asked if discussions included options such as imposing a no-fly zone over territory that Syrian rebels claim to control, Clinton indicated that was a possible option.
The ‚operational mechanism‘ on Syria which came into being during Clinton’s visit earlier this month is part of the Obama administration’s efforts to promote a transition to democracy in Syria through interactions with countries of the same mindset and increased interactions with the Syrian opposition. During this first meeting, the U.S. delegation, led by Elizabeth Jones will broach the issue of increasing operational planning with the Turks and possibly establishing a no-fly zone. The meeting will be held at the Turkish Foreign Ministry in the capital Ankara on Wednesday and will be closed to the press.
State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland mentioned tomorrow’s meeting on Tuesday, by stating, „Remember what the secretary committed to when she was in Istanbul, which was an interagency conversation, U.S. and Turkey sitting down together to share the operational picture, to talk about the effectiveness of what we’re doing now, and about what more we can do,“ State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Tuesday. „This is a bilateral conversation across the interagency. Our position on this one hasn’t changed. We are providing nonlethal assistance to the Syrian opposition… but also, increasingly, training for those future leaders of the NGO sector, some of the types of groups that the secretary met with when she was in Istanbul,“ Nuland said.

During Vegas Rager
Prince Harry put the crown jewels on display in Vegas this weekend … getting BARE ASS NAKED during a game of strip billiards with a room full of friends in his VIP suite.
It all went down Friday night during a raging party in a high rollers hotel suite.
We’re told Harry, along with a large entourage, went down to the hotel bar and met a bunch of hot chicks … and invited them up to his VIP suite.
Once in the room, things got WILD … with the group playing a game of strip pool that quickly escalated into full-on royal nudity.
Some of the partiers snapped photos of the madness. In one photo, a fully nude Harry cups his genitals while a seemingly topless woman stands behind him.
In another photo, a naked Harry is bear-hugging a woman who appears to be completely naked as well.
No word on who the women are … or if they got Harry’s phone number.
A rep for the Royal Family tells us, „We have no comment to make on the photos at this time.“

Sun’s decision to publish Prince Harry pictures ‚risky‘
Ein Deutscher Richter fällt ein bemerkenswertes Urteil: Wegen Körper Verletzung verbot er Beschneidungen. Erst wenn das Kind volljährig ist, soll es selbst entscheiden, ob eine Beschneidung gewünscht wird.
Menschenrechte für Kinder, unbekannt, bei gewissen Religionen!
Der Mann mit dem großen schwarzen Hut und dem langen weißen Bart ist nicht für Kompromisse nach Berlin gekommen. Wie könnte er auch. Yona Metzger ist seit 2003 Oberrabbiner der Juden in Israel und als eines von zwei Oberhäuptern des jüdischen Glaubens eine weltweit anerkannte Instanz. Religionsführer tun sich schwer mit Kompromissen, wenn es um Fragen des Glaubens geht. Und die Beschneidung von Jungen ist eine elementare Frage seines Glaubens.
Körperliche Unversehrtheit versus freie Religionsausübung
Zuletzt haben die Abgeordneten des Bundestags mit großer Mehrheit entschieden, dass es eine gesetzliche Regelung geben soll, die Beschneidungen grundsätzlich möglich macht. Im Bundesjustizministerium wird derzeit an einem Entwurf gearbeitet. Noch ist offen, wann das Gesetz im Bundestag behandelt werden kann.
Es ist ein juristisch kompliziertes Unterfangen, steht doch das Grundrecht des Kindes auf körperliche Unversehrtheit dem Recht der Eltern auf freie Ausübung ihrer Religion gegenüber.
Rabbi Metzger kann darauf wenig Rücksicht nehmen. Als religiöser Richter, der er in Israel ist, kann er jüdischen Eltern nur empfehlen, sich an das jüdische Recht zu halten. Und das ist zunächst mal eindeutig, wie Metzger referiert: Ein Junge muss acht Tage nach der Geburt von einem ausgewiesenen Beschneider auf natürliche Weise beschnitten werden.
Das umfasst auch das Verbot einer lokalen oder totalen Betäubung des Neugeborenen. Lediglich „ein Tropfen süßer Wein“ sei erlaubt, um das Kind zu beruhigen. Manche Beschneider nutzen auch Puder oder Spray um den Schmerz zu lindern. Mehr aber sei eben nicht zulässig. Der Beschneider dürfe dabei zwar Arzt sein, aber ein Arzt, der kein Beschneider sei, sei für die Prozedur nicht zugelassen.

IPPNW-Presseinformation vom 8.5.2012
Weißer Phosphor im Verdacht, Geburtsschäden zu verursachen
Neue Studie zu Geburtsschäden in Gaza
4. Mai 2012 im International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health veröffentlicht wurde. Ein Team von palästinensischen und italienischen Wissenschaftlern hatte die Studie am Al Shifa Krankenhaus durchgeführt, in dem 28% aller Babies des Gazastreifens geboren werden.
Bei der Geburtsmeldung gaben 27% der Eltern von Neugeborenen mit Fehlbildungen an, weißem Phosphor ausgesetzt gewesen zu sein. Dagegen hatten nur 1,7 % der Eltern mit gesunden Neugeborenen Kontakt mit dieser Munition. Es ist der erste derartige Bericht im Gazagebiet. Von Mai bis September 2011 wurden 4.027 Kinder geboren. Die Eltern beantworteten Fragen zu klinischen, demographischen und familiären Zusammenhängen sowie zu Umwelteinflüssen. Die Ärzte registrierten in den fünf Monaten 55 angeborene Fehlbildungen, 94 späte Fehlgeburten und 30 Totgeburten. Die Fehlbildungen betreffen hauptsächlich das zentrale Nervensystem und die Nieren; ferner waren multiple Anomalien und Spaltbildungen häufig.
„Wir fordern eine Ächtung des Einsatzes von Weißem Phosphor und appellieren erneut an die Bundesregierung, sich für ein Verbot dieser Waffen einzusetzen“, erklärt der IPPNW-Vorsitzende Matthias Jochheim. Der Einsatz von Brandwaffen gegen Zivilpersonen ist entsprechend dem Verbot von unterschiedslosen Angriffen in den Zusatzprotokollen von 1977 zu den Genfer Abkommen von 1949 verboten, nicht jedoch ihr Einsatz im Allgemeinen. Israel und die USA haben das Zusatzprotokoll bisher nicht ratifiziert. Im Goldstone-Bericht vom 15. September 2009 wurde der Einsatz von Phosphormunition gegen Zivilisten durch israelische Streitkräfte im Gazakrieg 2008/2009 kritisiert.
Umstritten ist, ob Phosphorbomben wegen ihrer Giftigkeit auch als chemische Waffe anzusehen sind, deren Einsatz gegen die Chemiewaffenkonvention verstoßen würde. Andere Kritiker sehen zudem einen Verstoß nach Artikel 35 des ersten Zusatzprotokolls zu den Genfer Abkommen. Danach ist es verboten, Waffen, Geschosse und Material sowie Methoden der Kriegführung zu verwenden, die geeignet sind, überflüssige Verletzungen oder unnötige Leiden zu verursachen. Aus Sicht der IPPNW sind die medizinischen Folgen des Einsatzes von Weißen Phosphor so inhuman, dass die Ärzteorganisation sich für ein generelles Einsatzverbot ausspricht.

Bibi’s Secret War Plan
by RICHARD SILVERSTEIN on AUGUST 15, 2012 · 109 COMMENTS
UPDATE: Here’s the link for my portion of the BBC Newshour segment in which I was interviewed about the Israeli government document.
Israelis are posting a claim that the document I published is identical to a post published by Fresh, an Israeli gossip/news portal, a few days ago. It is not. My original IDF source leaked the post to a Fresh member and me at the same time. That person published a small portion of the original memo at Fresh, embellishing it with much material that was meant to disguise what it was and where it came from. I can’t ascribe motives to whoever published it at Fresh, but much of it fantasy and isn’t in the original document. This story is now a screaming headline in the Israeli media and at no point has anyone in the Israeli government maintained that this document is anything other than what I claim it to be. They know it is authentic. Anyone else who claims otherwise does so at the risk of their own credibility (if they have any).
In the past few days, I received an Israeli briefing document outlining Israel’s war plans against Iran. The document was passed to me by a high-level Israeli source who received it from an IDF officer. My source, in fact, wrote to me that normally he would not leak this sort of document, but:
“These are not normal times. I’m afraid Bibi and Barak are dead serious.”
The reason they leaked it is to expose the arguments and plans advanced by the Bibi-Barak two-headed warrior. Neither the IDF leaker, my source, nor virtually any senior military or intelligence officer wants this war. While whoever wrote this briefing paper had use of IDF and intelligence data, I don’t believe the IDF wrote it. It feels more likely it came from the shop of national security advisor Yaakov Amidror, a former general, settler true-believer and Bibi confidant. It could also have been produced by Defense Minister Barak, another pro-war booster.
I’ve translated the document from Hebrew with the help of Dena Shunra.
Before laying out the document, I wanted to place it in context. If you’ve been reading this blog you’ll know that after Bibi’s IDF service he became the marketing director for a furniture company. Recent revelations have suggested that he may have also served in some capacity either formally or informally in the Mossad during that period.
This document is a more sophisticated version of selling bedroom sets and three-piece sectionals. The only difference is that this marketing effort could lead to the death of thousands.
This is Bibi’s sales pitch for war. Its purpose is to be used in meetings with members of the Shminiya , the eight-member security cabinet which currently finds a 4-3 majority opposed to an Iran strike. Bibi uses this sales pitch to persuade the recalcitrant ministers of the cool, clean, refreshing taste of war. My source informs me that it has also been shared in confidence with selected journalists who are in the trusted inner media circle (who, oh who, might they be?).
This is Shock and Awe, Israel-style. It is Bibi’s effort to persuade high-level Israeli officials that Israel can prosecute a pure technology war that involves relatively few human beings (Israeli, that is) who may be put in harm’s way, and will certainly cost few lives of IDF personnel.
Bibi’s sleight of hand here involves no mention whatsoever of an Iranian counter-attack against Israel. The presumption must be that the bells and whistles of all those marvelous new weapons systems will decapitate Iran’s war-making ability and render it paralyzed. The likelihood of this actually happening is nearly nil.
There will be those who will dispute the authenticity of this document. I’m convinced it is what my source claims, based on his prior track record and the level of specificity offered in the document. It references cities by name and the facilities they contain. It names new weapons systems including one Israel supposedly hasn’t even shared with the U.S.
No, it’s real. Or I should say that while it’s real, it is the product of the Israeli dream factory which manufactures threats and then creates fabulist military strategies to address them. The dream factory always breaks the hearts of the families of those whose members fall victim to it. It never produces the result it promises, nor will it do so here.
Remember Bush-era Shock and Awe? Remember those promises of precision-guided cruise missiles raining death upon Saddam Hussein’s Iraq? Remember Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” ceremony on the deck of the USS Lincoln, only six or seven years premature? Remember the promises of decisive victory? Remember 4,000 U.S. dead, not to mention hundreds of thousands of Iraqis?
Now, think of what an Israeli war against Iran could turn into. Think about how this sanitized version of 21st century war could turn into a protracted, bloody conflict closer to the nine-year Iran-Iraq War:
The Israeli attack will open with a coordinated strike, including an unprecedented cyber-attack which will totally paralyze the Iranian regime and its ability to know what is happening within its borders. The internet, telephones, radio and television, communications satellites, and fiber optic cables leading to and from critical installations—including underground missile bases at Khorramabad and Isfahan—will be taken out of action. The electrical grid throughout Iran will be paralyzed and transformer stations will absorb severe damage from carbon fiber munitions which are finer than a human hair, causing electrical short circuits whose repair requires their complete removal. This would be a Sisyphean task in light of cluster munitions which would be dropped, some time-delayed and some remote-activated through the use of a satellite signal.
A barrage of tens of ballistic missiles would be launched from Israel toward Iran. 300km ballistic missiles would be launched from Israeli submarines in the vicinity of the Persian Gulf. The missiles would not be armed with unconventional warheads [WMD], but rather with high-explosive ordnance equipped with reinforced tips designed specially to penetrate hardened targets.
The missiles will strike their targets—some exploding above ground like those striking the nuclear reactor at Arak–which is intended to produce plutonium and tritium—and the nearby heavy water production facility; the nuclear fuel production facilities at Isfahan and facilities for enriching uranium-hexaflouride. Others would explode under-ground, as at the Fordo facility.
A barrage of hundreds of cruise missiles will pound command and control systems, research and development facilities, and the residences of senior personnel in the nuclear and missile development apparatus. Intelligence gathered over years will be utilized to completely decapitate Iran’s professional and command ranks in these fields.
After the first wave of attacks, which will be timed to the second, the “Blue and White” radar satellite, whose systems enable us to perform an evaluation of the level of damage done to the various targets, will pass over Iran. Only after rapidly decrypting the satellite’s data, will the information be transferred directly to war planes making their way covertly toward Iran. These IAF planes will be armed with electronic warfare gear previously unknown to the wider public, not even revealed to our U.S. ally. This equipment will render Israeli aircraft invisible. Those Israeli war planes which participate in the attack will damage a short-list of targets which require further assault.
Among the targets approved for attack—Shihab 3 and Sejil ballistic missile silos, storage tanks for chemical components of rocket fuel, industrial facilities for producing missile control systems, centrifuge production plants and more.
While the level of specificity in this document is, in some senses, impressive, in one critical aspect it is deficient. Muhammad Sahimi points out that the current chief of the Revolutionary Guards, when he assumed his position in 2007, deliberately addressed the issue of over-centralization of command and control by dividing the nation into 31 districts. Each of these has its own independent command and control facilities and mechanisms. So Israel wouldn’t be able to knock out a single facility and paralyze the IRG. They’d need to knock out 31 separate sets of facilities–a much harder task.
There seems also to be an assumption that Iran’s leaders and nuclear specialists live nice domestic lives and that Israeli intelligence knows where they all live and can easily target them. In truth, the most senior Iranian military and scientific figures live clandestine lives and it’s hard for me to believe even the Mossad knows where they are and how to target them.
So it appears that Netanyahu believes he’s fighting Saddam circa 2003. During that war, the Iraqi Revolutionary Guards werecentralized and knocking out one C&C center could decapitate the entire military apparatus. But Iran has learned from Saddam’s mistakes. It isn’t fighting the last war as Bibi appears to be. It is preparing for the next one. While Israel may have new tricks up its sleeve that no one in the world has yet seen, if it doesn’t understand the nature of the enemy, its defenses, its structure, etc. then it can’t win.
News Alert: I’ve just been interviewed by BBC Newshour’s Julian Marshall and anticipate they will air a segment about this story at 1:30PM UK time and at 9:30AM east coast time (6:30AM west coast). I’m not sure which time it will air in Israel, but I believe it would be 3:30PM. If your NPR station airs BBC World Service you should hear it. I don’t know if it will be repeated any other times during the day. You can tell me that if you hear it.
Mit Vorsatz zerstören die Israelis, hier zum 5 mal Klein Betriebe im Gaza, was ein Kriegs Verbrechen ist. Deutschland schweigt
Gaza: Occupied Lives: I have no future
The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR)
Mamoun Ahmad Dalloul (36) lives in Tel-el-hawa with his wife and 9 children. Until recently, he owned a dairy-products factory that produced milk, cheese and yoghurt. Since December 2008, Mamoun has re-built his factory 4 times after it was repeatedly targeted and destroyed by Israel’s forces. On 04 June 2012, at around 1:00, his factory was targeted and destroyed by Israel’s forces for the 5th time.
On the evening of the most recent attack, Mamoun received a call from his brother, who lives adjacent to the factory, informing him that the factory had been destroyed by a missile from an F16: „I rushed to my factory and, when I arrived, there were firefighters and police. The neighbors were panicking and standing in the streets. I was told that a missile had hit the factory and then penetrated 6 or 7 meters into the ground. There was something like an earthquake for 5 minutes, and then the missile exploded and pulled everything into the crater. I do not know what kind of missile it was.“
After 5 attacks on his factory, Mamoun is devastated: „The first time my factory was destroyed was in December 2008 during Operation Cast Lead. The factory was very big and on the ground floor of our residential apartment. I received a call from Israel’s forces, who told me that the building would be targeted in the next 15 minutes. My family and I fled immediately. 3 missiles were fired from an F16 and the building was completely destroyed. In just a few minutes, we lost everything. We were suddenly homeless and I had lost my only source of a livelihood.“
Mamoun and his family were forced to shuffle from one household to another, looking for a place to stay: „We would stay at my parents’ house for a few days then move to my brother-in-law’s house and spend a few more at my brother’s house. My son kept asking why we had no home. Finally, as my wife is a refugee, UNRWA built us a single residential unit. I then rebuilt my factory in Sabra, which is in central Gaza City. It was very small and modest because there was barely any construction material in Gaza, as well as money constraints. 6 months later, it was destroyed by Israel’s forces. I then partnered with someone else and tried to rebuild in a different location, but it was destroyed while we were still constructing.“
