8 in 10 Americans Believe Muslims Face More Intolerance Than Any Other Group

Eight in ten Americans believe Muslims face more discrimination than any other group in the United States, according to a poll by the Pew Research Center.
82 percent of respondents said Muslims face discrimination, while 80 percent of those surveyed said blacks faced some discrimination, Daily Sabah reported.

Pew released the figures Monday after US President Donald Trump tweeted a video that attacked Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar from Minnesota.

The video was of a speech delivered by Omar in which she discussed how Muslim Americans came to be seen as second-class citizens after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.>>>

Dispute Among US Officials Over Trump Administration Iran Arms Control Report

A new Trump administration report on international compliance with arms control accords provoked a dispute with US intelligence agencies and some State Department officials concerned that the document politicizes and slants assessments about Iran, five sources with knowledge of the matter said, Reuters reports.

US President Donald Trump is intensifying a drive to contain Iran’s power in the Middle East, which has raised fears that his administration wants to topple the Tehran government or lay the groundwork to justify military action.

The administration says it is trying to halt Iranian “malign behavior” in its support for Islamist militants in the region and denies seeking the overthrow of the Islamic republic’s government.

The clash among US officials emerged on Tuesday>>>

The State Department spokeswoman said that the US position that Russia is in violation of the INF Treaty “is clear.”

North Korea wants Pompeo removed from nuclear talks

Foreign ministry describes the US secretary of state as 'reckless' and says it wants him replaced by another official.

North Korea wants United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo replaced with someone "more careful and mature" in talks over its banned nuclear programme, a senior official told state media, hours after the country announced a missile test.

Describing Pompeo as "reckless" the foreign ministry said a summit in Vietnam earlier this year showed that talks could go wrong "whenever Pompeo pokes his nose in".

The April meeting in Hanoi between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump collapsed after the US president reportedlygave Kim a document demanding that North Korea transfer its nuclear arsenal and weapons fuel to the US.

The model proposed was one that Pompeo and US National Security Adviser John Bolton had supported.

CIA Chief Used Duck Photos to Trick Trump Into Anti-Russia Move

President Trump makes plenty of hostile moves toward Russia of his own accord. This is compounded, however, when members of his cabinet, like CIA Director Gina Haspel start conniving to mislead Trump into taking even more hostile moves.

When the alleged Novichok poisoning happened in Salisbury in March of 2018, President Trump was not inclined to go along with recommendations within his cabinet to take a “strong option” to move against Russia.

Haspel was somehow “tasked” with convincing Trump to accept this move, and in doing so she showed Trump fake photographs of dead ducks, claiming that the ducks were poisoned in the “sloppy” Russian action.

Behind the Obama administration’s shady plan to spy on the Trump campaign

In Senate testimony last week, Attorney General William Barr used the word “spying” to refer to the Obama administration, um, spying on the Trump campaign. Of course, fainting spells ensued, with the media-Democrat complex in meltdown. Former FBI Director Jim Comey tut-tutted that he was confused by Barr’s comments, since the FBI’s “surveillance” had been authorized by a court.

(Needless to say, the former director neglected to mention that the court was not informed that the bureau’s “evidence” for the warrants was unverified hearsay paid for by the Clinton campaign.)

The pearl-clutching was predictable. Less than a year ago, we learned the Obama administration had used a confidential informant — a spy — to approach at least three Trump campaign officials in the months leading up to the 2016 election, straining to find proof that the campaign was complicit in the Kremlin’s hacking of Democratic emails.

Melania Trump Responds To Vogue Snub

The office of First Lady Melania Trump responded on Friday after Anna Wintour implied during an interview that the current first lady will not appear on the cover of Vogue despite featuring past first ladies.

“To be on the cover of Vogue doesn’t define Mrs. Trump, she’s been there, done that long before she was first lady,” Stephanie Grisham, spokeswoman for Trump, said in a statement first obtained by Fox News.

“We always had a tradition at Vogue to photograph the first ladies when they first came in to office — some extraordinary, wonderful women, and it was an honor to photograph them,” Wintour said during an interview CNN before praising former First Lady Michelle Obama for “inspiring so many women” and doing “wonders for fashion.” Vogue featured Obama three separate times when she served as first lady.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How petty.

For the record. I think Melania is the hottest first lady this nation has ever had.

Pompeo is “Setting the Stage for a War with Iran”

Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested that the Trump administration would not rule out going to war with Iran even though there is no explicit authorization from Congress to do so. Pompeo said this in the context of being asked whether the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) could be used to attack Iran on the basis that Iran supported the 9/11 attacks and is connected to Al Qaeda, which carried out the 9/11 attack.

CIA tricked Trump using photos of sick kids & dead ducks so he would expel Russian diplomats – NYT

The current CIA director reportedly played on Donald Trump’s emotions to persuade him to expel dozens of Russian diplomats, using pictures of dead ducks and sick children that she claimed had been exposed to Novichok.
The New York Times reports that the president was reluctant to throw out any Russian officials in the aftermath of the Salisbury poisonings in Britain last year, until Gina Haspel, who was CIA deputy director at the time, showed him pictures of children “sickened by the Novichok” and “a photograph of ducks that British officials said were inadvertently killed by the sloppy work of the Russian operatives.”

The revelation marks the first public mention of the existence of such material which the New York Times reports had been provided by British intelligence.

Turkey eyes Donald Trump protection from any sanctions for Russian defence purchase

Turkey expects President Donald Trump to use a waiver to protect it if the US Congress decides to sanction Ankara over a planned purchase of a Russian missile defence system, a Turkish presidential spokesman said on Tuesday.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said last week that Washington had told Ankara it could face retribution for buying the S-400s under a sanctions law known as Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CATSAA).

What Trump And His Religious Supporters Can Learn From Cyrus The Great

Many of Trumps’ supporters who delve into their Bible from time to time have managed to see the likeness of Cyrus the Great in President Trump.

Cyrus was the founder of the world’s first major empire and “is mentioned 23 times by name and alluded to several times more” in the Bible. And a few of his titles include, “shepherd”, “anointed” and “smoothing the way,” which meant Jews’ trouble free return from captivity. However, Trump’s religious supporters refer to Cyrus as a ‘pagan’ king, only used by God for his purposes as Trump is today. Freeing the Jews was only one of King Cyrus’s great deeds. A byproduct of his vision for a new world
***
Trump is looked upon as the liberator. But who is Trump liberating? King Cyrus freed the Jews from slavery in Babylon that’s why he was hailed as the liberator. He was equally welcomed by other nations who were being oppressed by their rulers. But where are the enslaved people now?>>>

Ankara Deeply Concerned over US Arms Shipments to Syrian Kurds

A prominent Turkish political analyst underlined Ankara's concerns about Washington's continued arms shipments to the Kurdish militia, warning of the US plans against Syria's territorial integrity by setting the stage for Kurdish
independence.

The Arabic-language service of Sputnik quoted Turki Mahmoud Othman as saying on Tuesday that the US has supplied the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) with a large amount of weapons and military equipment.

Othman claimed that the US intends to protect and support the SDF with the help of the European forces as it promises Turkey to create a demilitarized zone in Northern Syria to buy time, and warned that the demilitarized zone is likely a trap for Turkey by Washington.

Omar Blames Trump For Death Threats, Suggests Supporters Responsible For Hate Crimes

Rep. Ilhan Omar accused President Trump of fomenting anger and increasing death threats against her by posting a video of her own words diminishing the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

The President tweeted a video of the Minnesota Democrat’s controversial comments noting that 9/11 involved “some people [who] did something,” mixed with clips from the actual terrorist attacks.

Trump added the caption “We will never forget!”

Omar cited the video clip as a reason for an unverified increase in death threats against her and her family.

“Since the President’s tweet Friday evening, I have experienced an increase in direct threats on my life — many directly referencing or replying to the President’s video,” she claimed without evidence.

Trump says Israelis should be immune from International Criminal Court prosecution

The Trump administration again named Israelis along with Americans as deserving immunity from International Criminal Court prosecution.

In a statement Friday, President Donald Trump declared victory after the ICC rejected a request to investigate U.S. personnel for actions in Afghanistan.

“Since the creation of the ICC, the United States has consistently declined to join the court because of its broad, unaccountable prosecutorial powers; the threat it poses to American national sovereignty; and other deficiencies that render it illegitimate,” the White House said in a statement it attributed to Trump. “Any attempt to target American, Israeli, or allied personnel for prosecution will be met with a swift and vigorous response.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Once again, the U.S. declares itself to be an outlaw nation with nothing but contempt for humanity and the rule of law.

Pentagon Approves $500Mln to Train Taiwanese F-16 Fighter Pilots

The US Department of State has approved a half a billion dollar possible sale of F-16 pilot training, spare parts and supply equipment to the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States (TECRO), the Defence Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) said in a press release.

"The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to TECRO in the United States for the continuation of a pilot training program and maintenance/logistics support for F-16 aircraft currently at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona for an estimated cost of $500 million," the release said on Monday.

The French Civil Security agency was quick to respond to Trump's suggestion, saying that dropping water from the air onto the building could collapse the entire structure.

Trump Dances to Israel's Tune

So newly reelected Israeli monster-in-chief Benjamin Netanyahu has boasted, with a grin, that America’s President Donald J. Trump followed through on his proposal to declare the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) a terrorist group. Bibi was smiling because the timing of the move, one day before the Israeli election, strongly suggests it was done to assist him against what had become a very strong opposition challenge. That Trump likely colluded with Netanyahu to blatantly interfere in the election has apparently bothered no one in Israel or in the tame American media.

US agrees not to seek death penalty for Assange

The United States has agreed not to seek the death penalty against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in covert negotiations with the UK and Ecuador to get him evicted from the South American country’s embassy in London, US media reported.

The process of moving Assange out of the Ecuadorian Embassy started a year ago, in March 2018, when the Ecuadorians made their first request to Britain, ABC News reported Monday.

Ecuador made its request in a letter on March 7 of last year, asking for written assurances that the UK would not extradite Assange to a country where he could face the death penalty, the report said, citing US and Ecuadorian officials.

Ecuador's direct outreach to the US came six months later, through the country’s ambassador to Germany, Manuel Mejia Dalmau, according to the report.

TEHRAN (FNA) Time to Ditch US Dollar

The United States government has been using the dollar as a convenient weapon of choice to preserve its global economic and geopolitical position for many decades.

This has been evident through illegal sanctions for Iran, Russia and Venezuela, as well as members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

For instance, in the last week, and in a response to a potential passage of the bipartisan No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act, known as NOPEC, in Congress that would enable the US Justice Department to sue OPEC for coordinating production, Saudi Arabia threatened to sell its oil in currencies other than the dollar. It said the plan had been discussed with OPEC members and that Riyadh had communicated the threat to senior US energy officials. Then later, Riyadh denied the report that it was threatening to sell its oil in currencies other than the dollar for passing NOPEC.

The implications of this new development are immense>>>

'Clearly a joke': White House explains away Trump's 'I love WikiLeaks' comments

The recent arrest of WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange has put the White House in the awkward position of having to explain away US President Donald Trump's previous praise for the whistleblowing website.

Wallace began playing the video before cutting it off.

"Now, that was the only five seconds we felt comfortable showing," Wallace told White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. "It goes on in a much worse way of her seeming, no question about it, to minimize 9/11 and then horrible images from 9/11."

"Why is the president comfortable putting out horrible images like that?" Wallace asked. "Does he worry at all about inciting violence against Muslims in general or Ilhan Omar in specific?"

Who doesn’t want faster, bigger (or smaller), more efficient? Take wireless mobile telecommunications. Our current broadband cellular network platform, 4G (or fourth generation), allows us to transmit data faster than 3G and everything that preceded. We can access information faster now than ever before in history. What more could we want? Oh, yes, transmission speeds powerful enough to accommodate the (rather horrifying) so-called Internet of Things. Which brings us to 5G.

Why Isn’t The Democratic Party Leadership Coming To Ilhan Omar’s Defense?

The leadership of the Democratic Party is not coming to the defense of Rep. Omar because Ilhan Omar is a liberal. And let me tell you, the leadership of the Democratic Party has kept liberals twisting in the wind since forever.
***
The Republicans are attempting to tag the Democratic Party as the party of Muslims and to imply that it makes the party unpatriotic and anti-Semitic. The prominence of Ilhan Omar and her searing leftwing critiques of the miserable status quo are seen by Trump and Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell as an opportunity to Mondalize the Democrats.
***
If the Democratic leadership were smart, they’d come out vocally in Omar’s defense and do a photo op with her at one of her events for the working class or for the 9/11 firest responders. She cares about those people, she is from poverty and displacement. She is authentic. The Democratic leadership is tied to corporations and big banks and big money. If they run on that, as they did in 2016, Trump will have them for lunch.

Harvard University’s undergraduate council voted on Sunday to give $2,050 to the Palestine Solidarity Committee to add to their IAW a physical “Wall of Resistance,” sponsored by 14 students groups, including Harvard College Democrats, Palestinian speakers and a student panel, reported the school’s newspaper, The Harvard Crimson.

The anti-Israel speakers included Princeton University professor and political activist Cornel West and Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill, who was fired by CNN in November as a contributor for calling for “a Free Palestine From the River to the Sea.”

“This openly anti-Zionist event frequently crossed the line into outright antisemitism, including conflations of Zionism with ‘white supremacy,’ and enthusiastic chants to free Palestine ‘from the river to the sea,’ which is commonly understood as a call for the destruction of Israel as a Jewish state,” CAMERA campus coordinator Zac Schildcrout told JNS. “These radical ideas that demonize Jews are bigoted and should be passionately countered by the Harvard community.”

Zionist terror pits Christians vs. Muslims

MSM propagandists, including phoney alt-right outlets run by Zionists, want to confound patriots by hyping the ‘Muslim immigrant’ or ‘Islamic invasion’ threat. What they don’t want you to know about Islam is that Muslims are the world’s biggest potential allies of Christianity. Hindus and Buddhists have no use for Jesus; Jews and atheists detest Jesus, but Muslims love and revere Jesus. Given half a chance, real Muslims, the ones who pray five times a day and attend the local mosque would step forward to defend Christian holy places against pussy rioters and other vandals.

Isaac Abravanel (1437-1508), Netanyahu's family hero and role model, was the first modern Zionist. Abravanel preached a pragmatic plan to create a Jewish state in the Holy Land while taking revenge on Christians and Muslims by tricking them into fighting each other in an apocalyptic war that would destroy both religions and leave Zionist Jews masters of the world. A little over five centuries later, Abravanel's plan' hyped by Bibi's father Benzion Netanyahu' is nearing fruition.

A key Zionist weapon is Satanism.>>>

Cheney’s One-Percent Doctrine Lives On

***
After 9/11, something had changed in Cheney’s thought process. Perhaps it was the prospect of having been personally targeted by those 19 al Qaeda members on that fateful day. Or, perhaps the uncertainty of what might come next was simply too overpowering for Cheney to ever return to the measured, realistic approach to foreign policy that he once held.

On that day, the formulations of Cheney’s infamous “one-percent doctrine” came about. The one-percent doctrine went like this: If there was even a one-percent chance that a terrorist or other American enemy could pull off another 9/11 — or worse — the United States had to commit 100 percent of its time, capabilities, and efforts to thwarting that one-percent threat, no matter the cost. According to this view, despite the existence of a massive, entrenched defense and intelligence bureaucracy, the United States missed the warning signs of 9/11. Cheney worried about what else America’s elite institutions could be missing. The one-percent doctrine was Cheney’s best solution for ensuring another devastating attack did not surprise the United States.

Why Trump Is A Rothschild Tool

In 1987 Donald Trump purchased 93% of Resorts International, a CIA front founded by Crown Agents Allen Dulles and David Rockefeller as the Mary Carter Paint Company in the 1950’s. A year later Trump bought the Atlantic City, NJ Taj Mahal Casino from Resorts International, then began buying up other properties on the Atlantic City boardwalk.

Soon Trump was tapped out and couldn’t make his debt payments.

Enter Wilbur Ross, billionaire bond trader portrayed by the Illuminati financial media as an “independent investor”. In fact, in 1992 Ross was heading Rothschild Inc.’s bankruptcy advising team, which represented bondholders who were threatening to foreclose on Donald’s house of cards.

How Rothschild Inc. Saved Donald Trump

On October 30, 1978, The Spotlight newspaper reported that the principle investors of Resorts International were Meyer Lansky, Tibor Rosenbaum, William Mellon Hitchcock, David Rockefeller, and one Baron Edmond de Rothschild.

Michael Collins Piper, in his book The New Jerusalem: Zionist Power in America has done an excellent job of describing the relationship between Donald Trump and Resorts International. The following excerpt sums up the relationship:

“In 1987, upon the death of longtime CIA front man James Crosby, the nominal head of Resorts International, up-and-coming young New York real estate tycoon Donald Trump stepped into the picture and bought Crosby’s interest in the gambling empire.”

Ever since Mr. MAGA made it to the White House, I have been awed by the level of sheer stupidity and, frankly, the immorality of this administration. Obama was almost as incompetent and evil, but Trump truly brought about a qualitative change in what we could loosely refer to as the “average White House IQ.” The best thing I can honestly say about Trump is that stupid can be good. Alas, it can also be extremely dangerous, and that is what is happening now. Just check out these recent headlines:

‘I know nothing about Wikileaks. It’s not my thing,’ says Trump following Assange’s arrest

US President Donald Trump, who said he loved WikiLeaks during his election campaign, tried to distance himself from the arrest of Julian Assange, which was carried out by Britain on the request of the US.

Speaking to journalists in the Oval Office on Thursday, hours after the arrest of Assange in London, Trump said:

"I know nothing about WikiLeaks. It’s not my thing."

Trump was far less reluctant to speak about the transparency site in 2016, when it played a major role in the US presidential election after it published a number of documents leaked from the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Then-candidate Trump called the work of the site “amazing” and said he “loved” what it was being doing.

Trump to host screening of pro-life film ‘Gosnell’ at White House

In his latest gesture of solidarity with the pro-life movement, President Donald Trump will host a screening of Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer at the White House on Friday.

Gosnell tells the true story of Philadelphia abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s arrest, trial, and conviction for the first-degree murder of three born-alive babies and the involuntary manslaughter of patient Karnamaya Mongar. It’s based “very heavily on actual court transcripts,” “dozens of hours of interviews” with Gosnell himself, and the case’s grand jury report.

The film highlights the shocking details of the original trial, such as Gosnell cutting the spinal cords of hundreds of newborns; witnesses describing infants who survived initial abortion attempts as “swimming” in toilets “to get out”; the feet of aborted babies stored in a freezer; and the mainstream media’s initial avoidance of the story.

Presidential Candidate Cory Booker Loves Himself Some AIPAC And Israel

How do you take a typical progressive and turn him or her into a fascist? One possible way is to send the poor bastard off on an all expenses paid trip to Israel where a meticulously crafted and sophisticated brainwashing program will make one believe almost anything regarding the noble and God-chosen Israelis versus the satanic Arab terrorists. Add into that the fact that being pro-Israel is a plus in many career fields and it is easy to understand why a monster like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gets favorable press and commentary in the United States even as he is reviled in most of the rest of the world.

The liberal to fascist metamorphosis is most evident among Democratic Party politicians, who have been successfully targeted by the Israel Lobby and its deep pocketed supporters for many years. It is all part of a massive public relations campaign, which some might instead refer to as disinformation, planned and executed by the Israeli foreign ministry and its diaspora supporters to advance Israeli interests in spite of the fact that the government of Netanyahu has implemented and executed fundamentally anti-democratic programs while at the same time committing war crimes and violating a whole series of United Nations resolutions.

Former FBI Counsel: Top Officials Discussed Wearing Wire, 25th Amendment to OUST TRUMP

James Baker, the former top lawyer for the FBI, testified that officials had a “list” of options in dealing with President Trump following then-FBI Director James Comey’s firing. The list reportedly included wearing a wire or invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

The revelation was made during the second day of testimony by Baker regarding the Russia probe in October. House Republicans released a transcript of the shocking statements on Tuesday.

On the first day of Baker’s testimony, a day which one lawmaker described as “explosive,” he insisted that outgoing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s reported idea to record the President and use the evidence to push Trump out of office was quite serious.

According to the New York Times, memos written by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe show that Rosenstein offered to wear a wire during meetings with Trump.

Trump again overrules top brass

President Donald Trump has declared on more than one occasion that he’s smarter than America’s military leaders.

And with his unprecedented decision Monday to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a foreign terrorist group, he’s setting up another test of that thesis.

Trump chose to overrule the Pentagon after National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo advised that the top brass' warnings about risks to U.S. troops are overblown, several officials with direct knowledge of the deliberations told POLITICO.

The president’s move came despite Pentagon officials’ warnings that it could lead to retaliatory attacks against U.S. troops by Iranian-backed forces in the Middle East and threats from Iranian leaders that U.S. troops could face “consequences.”

Note that Pompeo and Bolton were the ones telling Trump to ignore the brass.

Brad Parscale About Trump in 2020: He’s ‘Building One of the Largest Political Campaign Operations in History’

Looking ahead to the 2020 campaign for the presidency, Brad Parscale, manager of the Trump 2020 campaign, said on Fox News on Tuesday night that President Donald Trump “is one of the best marketers in American history. I think he understands the people. He understands how to communicate to people.” And as he and his team prepare for the next election, “he’s going to move in a way” that projects his strengths and reacts to whatever opposing candidate he winds up facing on the Democrat side.

“Either way,” he told host Laura Ingraham of “The Ingraham Angle,” “he’s going to stay strong. He’s fighting for this country. He did this [ran for the White House] for no other reason but to save the country, and I don’t think he’s going to move away from that … It’s how we won the [2016] election and it’s going to be how he continues to win.”

'Out with system': Algeria protesters reject interim president

Thousands rally in Algiers to denounce appointment of establishment insider Abdelkader Bensalah as acting head of state.

Police in Algeria's capital have fired tear gas and water cannon at thousands of students protesting against the appointment of a new interim president who is a part of the ruling order they have been seeking to remove.

The demonstration in central Algiers on Tuesday took place as parliament officially confirmed upper house Speaker Abdelkader Bensalah as acting head of state for the next 90 days to replace Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who resigned last week under pressure from the weeks-long, youth-led protests.

Footage showed security forces moving in on the demonstrators shouting "out with the system", dousing them with pepper spray, shooting from a water cannon and using batons to break up the crowd.

Bensalah's appointment is in accordance with Algeria's constitution but the protesters who drove Bouteflika out after 20 years in office are unsatisfied with the move because he is a key ally of the former president and a seasoned establishment insider.

US trade deficit soars despite Trump tariffs

US President Donald Trump has vowed to impose import tariffs on $11 billion worth of goods from the European Union after the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled EU subsidies to Airbus caused “adverse effects” to the US.
Earlier this week, the US Trade Representative (USTR) said Washington was mulling tariffs on a wide range of European exports to the US, including large commercial aircraft and parts, as well as wine, cheese, and dairy products.

The US threat has been sharply criticized by EU officials, who said the figure of $11 billion was “greatly exaggerated.” The bloc is reportedly weighing retaliatory measures against the US over Boeing subsidies. Airbus said it saw no legal basis for Washington’s move and warned of deepening transatlantic trade tensions.

A Failed State Called Libya

New reports suggest forces loyal to Libya’s Tripoli government have recaptured the former international airport in the south of the capital from eastern forces. This is while clashes are still ongoing in the Qasr ben Ghashir area next to the airport.

This comes after an increase of fighting and violence in Libya, as rival factions contending to be the country's legitimate government drag out a prolonged conflict. Leading the military, General Khalifa Haftar has vowed on an assault on Tripoli, the country's capital city and seat of the administration backed by members of the United Nations Security Council. Western nations have called for the fighting to stop, accusing the marshal of launching an illegitimate and undemocratic coup.

Libya's problems aren't new or even surprising. They are all an extension of a catastrophic foreign policy decision made at the beginning of this decade, which is to have violently overthrown Muammaoutr Gaddafi and to have plunged the country into a crisis it has not recovered from.

How Netanyahu’s election gifts are murdering international law

With the Golan Heights now recognised as Israeli territory by the US, and Russia and Egypt helping to deliver gifts ahead of today’s general election, it looks like Israel’s dramatic swing to the right has been internationally accepted.

“There is a very important principle in international life,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said last week at the Golan signing ceremony at the White House in Washington DC. “When you start wars of aggression, you lose territory, do not come and claim it afterwards. It belongs to us.” As absurd and preposterous as it may be, he said this with no attempt to find an argument that could be reconciled with reason. This complete indifference to the international community’s opinion says a lot about Netanyahu’s position while US President Donald Trump is in office.
