The SAS being in Libya is almost certainly true though

"The crack squad of elite soldiers are dressed in Arab clothes and carrying the same AK47s and Kalashnikovs that the rebels have used in the conflict." An AK47 IS a Kalashnikov Daily Mail... And I'm sure this section is just for jokes: "It has also been suggested that the tunnels could surface in the sea, from where the Gaddafi family could use a submarine to travel around the Africa.

The tunnels are believed to be so long that they could com up directly at Sirte or Sabha. Alternatively they may surface in the desert, from where Gaddai could travel incognito by jeep, jet, helicopter or even camel to a region where he has support."

But what colour is Qadhafi's submarine Oh Daily Mail? And do you realise that Sirte is 300 miles away from Tripoli? This must be some tunnel system he has built. And of course you can't cover the Arab world without bringing up camel travel.
And I'm loving all the qualifications, read that again. "It has also BEEN SUGGESTED (by who???) that the tunnels COULD surface in the sea, from where the Gaddafi family COULD use a submarine to travel around the Africa.

The tunnels ARE BELIEVED
(by who???) to be so long that THEY COULD com[e] up directly at Sirte or Sabha. Alternatively THEY MAY surface in the desert, from where Gaddai COULD travel incognito by jeep, jet, helicopter or even camel to a region where he has support." When you see journalism like this you know they're just making it up.

Who dunnit?

Zionists don't care that it had nothing to do with Gaza. As far as they're concerned some Arabs attacked their terrorist bases and conveniently they have a load of defenseless Arabs camped next door in Gaza so they'll just bomb and murder them to satisfy their lust for blood and carnage. God's blessings to a job well done anyway, whoever it was. Keep bombing those pipelines.

Death Toll Passes 600 From Raid in South Sudan

But don't worry the South Sudan regime is allied with Israel so their crimes are rarely mentioned.

The Zionist account of events on the Mavi Mamara:

 "Unarmed IDF soldiers attempted to stop the ship and during the takeover encountered armed protestors, which left our Navy Commandoes severely bruised and gravely wounded in some cases." Heh Zionist terrorist are such natural murderers that they managed to kill nine people whilst unarmed according to this guy. Oh and after describing the pathetic Turkish demand for an apology from Israel (as if that lets the killers off) he says "As the world became accustomed to seeing Israel apologizing..." except that Israel didn't apologise to Turkey...

Eritrea releases 2 Israeli pilots held on arms charges

I love how so many news articles in the Zionist media start with "Cleared for publication:". The military censor is everywhere.

Zionists: Your days are numbered

Man look at the last paragraph of this NYT article “My happiness is indescribable,” he told the Jazeera Live Egypt television channel in a telephone interview. “I did something that millions of Arabs want to do, to bring down the Israeli flag. This is a chance to put more fear in the hearts of the Zionists.”

"Israelis facing similar onslaught to London blitz"

Remember how Zionists go ballistic at the slightest hint of a comparison between Zionist crimes and Nazism, yet their media comes out with the most absurd comparisons of Palestinians to Nazis at least once a week. 1 Israeli gets killed in the last 2 and a half years by a Palestinian rocket attack and it's a "similar onslaught to London blitz" where 40,000 people were killed in 8 months.

Bit by bit Zionism will be defeated

Die terrorist

Legendary anti-terror sniper killed

Some things never change

See in this post-apocalyptic edition of the Guardian website front-page they still find place for 'Big Brother Live Blog'.

Karl Marx was right

This is pretty mad a mainstream economist in the Wall Street Journal says that we're screwed, structural adjustment doesn't work and the only way out is to effectively abolish the monetary system, oh and that Karl Marx was right capitalism has an inherent flaw which makes it self-destructive.

Why Should I Pay for You to go to University

At a time when soaring tuition fees and graduate debt lead both school leavers and financial advisors questioning whether or not a degree is worth the cost, when the UK's economy faces rising competion from highly-skilled workers in China and India - the so-called Global Skills Race - perhaps the real question we should be asking is not whether the taxpayer should fund higher education, but can we afford not to.
This article really gets to the heart of why the way the tutition fees debate is almost always framed in the British media (i.e. education is nice but can we afford it?) is completely wrong. Having an uneducated population costs a society much more in the long run, otherwise why doesn't the government save billions of pounds by closing all state schools? Or is the flaw in that plan obvious? But government policy is not made in the 'national interest' (I don't believe such a thing really exists, the CEO of a FTSE 100 company does not have the same interests as the woman who cleans his office), but rather in the interests of those forces best positioned to influence the state, and those forces nowadays (increasing banks, financial institutionals, multinational corporations and arms/military companies) do not have the same interests as the general population. Just look at the financial crisis the Western world has been in for years now. You're telling me the people responsible for causing and refusing to resolve this crisis have the interests of the general population of their societies at heart?

The speech of Hasan Nasrallah to the Women's Branch of the Islamic Resistance Support Association on August 17 2011

Ladies and dear sisters! Peace be upon you and God's mercy and blessings.

I thank you all for your presence on this occasion on the holy Month of Ramadan in which the Women's Branch in the Islamic Resistance Support Association in Lebanon gathers us. I extend my regards to all the presence in the six different places: in Beirut in Sayyeda Khadeja Charity, Baalbeck, Saida, Tyr, Nabatiyeh and Tiri. We ask God Almighty to make it a blessed year and hundred returns with blessings for all.

The Resistance gathers us in this occasion - whether those who believe in it or those who support it. Thus I will go straight into the core of my speech without the need for preludes especially that I want to take few moments from this meeting to comment on what was published today concerning the so called indictment in a way that goes with the occasion and within the time limit though there is much to be said on the text and content of what was published today.

As far as the Resistance is concerned there are several related topics:

First, the magnitude of sacrifices;
Second, the magnitude of achievements;
Third, the magnitude of targeting this Resistance which made many sacrifices and achievements;
Fourth, the magnitude of expectations, hopes and bargains on this Resistance.

As for the first topic, it goes without saying that there hasn't been in history a resistance which hasn't offered sacrifices. When a people decide to restore their occupied land, sovereignty and dignity through efforts and resisting, they have to make sacrifices. The sacrifices of the Resistance in Lebanon were great, huge and very valuable. When I talk about sacrifices, I talk about all the Resistance factions in Lebanon. I do not mean Hizbullah only but rather all the factions and forces which had their share in this Resistance since the very beginning. I also mean the offerings of the Lebanese Army, the Lebanese Security Forces as well as the valuable sacrifices made by the Lebanese people especially women, children and the armless people.

When we talk about sacrifices, we mean tens of thousands of martyrs, tens of thousands of wounded, thousands of Lebanese young men and women who were detained in prisons and detention centers, tens of thousands of residential units which were demolished during the years of occupation and war, what have afflicted people's wealth and fields and what have afflicted the national economy. Our aim from talking about sacrifices is always reminding ourselves that the achievements we made were not for free.

Rather they were the result of these great sacrifices. That makes us more interested in the achievement, in preserving the victory so as not to lose it because its price was this dear and precious blood. Thus also we know the worth of those who offered sacrifices. Even more, we must appreciate those who offered sacrifices in our Lebanese society and in all societies, and give a special status to the families of martyrs, wounded, freed prisoners and prisoners who are still in detention, the people who remained steadfast and offered support and the people who assumed the repercussions of the Resistance. We must respect these sacrifices and the people who offered them.

So as far as the first topic is concerned and as for the Resistance in Lebanon and in any resistance whether in Palestine, Iraq or any place, we are before great sacrifices which we must respect and appreciate. These sacrifices as well make us assume national and moral responsibilities.

Secondly, we will handle the magnitude of the achievements. Since the beginning, this Resistance with all its factions, efforts, very existence and pillars - I reiterate I mean the Resistance, army and people - could make great achievements and victories on the domestic as well as on the national level: liberating the Lebanese territories unconditionally and the withdrawal of the enemy with humiliation and defeat on May 25, 2000 with the exception of some Lebanese territories namely Shebaa Farms, Kfar Shuba Hills and the Lebanese part of Al Ghajar. However the greater and more important part of the territories was restored to the nation.

The prisoners were freed with the exception of some case which must be followed because there is argument between us and the Israelis. We say they are alive; they say they died. There is an argument over their bodies. However, this file remains open. Anyway, at least those who are alive and whose cases are undisputed were freed. Our waters were liberated from the greed of the Israelis in Al Wazani waters. Now if Lebanon is not benefiting from its waters, this is a Lebanese problem which has nothing to do with the struggle with the Israeli enemy. Among the achievements are the victory and the steadfastness which took place during July War and the repercussions on the Israeli entity itself and on the Arab-Israeli conflict in general.

Consequently, the regional dimension of the Resistance achievements on Palestine and the Arab cause in general are among the achievements of the Resistance. In this perspective comes the threefold equation for protecting the country, deterring the Israeli enemy from staging aggressions against Lebanon prior and following July War up till now and despite the greed of the Zionists in our land, water and wealth which has extended lately to reach our oil wealth which we are all aware of and which needs to be protected.

Not only the oil wealth which is in the economic region which is so called disputed need to be protected but also the oil wealth in the economic region which is said to be undisputed needs that. So should excavating and drilling companies come to work even in the Lebanese economic region in the sea which Israel acknowledges is an economic region for Lebanon, these companies and facilities need protection. How are we to offer them protection? Is it through the International Security Council, or through international resolutions or through our own power?

These achievements mounted to make Lebanon - which was always on the margin and outside the equation - forcefully present in the regional equation. It is impossible anymore that any solution and settlement take place in the region at the expense of Lebanon or without taking the interests of Lebanon into consideration as it always used to take place.

The third point is the magnitude of target. Here I would like to say: My sisters! You must know that the Israelis from the very first days along with the Americans and all their accomplices in the project have done all what they are able to do. In the future, they will do all what they can do as well. They have no legal or moral or humanistic or lawful source of deterrence that prevents them from attacking the Resistance whose only sin and crime are that it fought to restore the land, restore the sovereignty and dignity, free the prisoners and preserve the national energy and demand rights.

This is the sin of the Resistance and that is why it is always targeted. That's because it's an element of strength, an element of dignity and an element which enables Lebanon and other countries to stand erect and preserve their rights or demand their usurped rights. This took place in Lebanon, in Palestine and everywhere. Under the title of targets comes killing the cadres and leaders of the Resistance. Martyr Sayyed Abbas Mussawi and Martyr Sheikh Ragheb Harb among a great number of our cadres and leaders were assassinated during all the past years. Other targets are arrests, imprisonments, detentions, drying the financing sources, psychological and moral wars - meaning the incessant threats to Lebanon, the infrastructure, the Lebanese people and the Lebanese Army, the Resistance - and military wars.

This Resistance in Lebanon led at least three military wars: July 1993, April 1996 and July 2006. The aim of the military war is to crush the Resistance and put an end to it. All these wars were frustrated. All attempts of political isolation on the domestic, national and international levels failed. Even killing the leaders and cadres had counter effects. That made the Resistance more determined and furnished it with a great moral thrust, a sense of being oppressed and a greater belief that this path can't be abandoned after offering this great number of martyrs. We also mention what used to take place since the very first day and is still taking place up till now - namely distorting the image and reputation of the Resistance and misleading the public opinion on the Resistance, its targets, background and authenticity.

However what is taking place lately - that's what I want to assert most in my speech - is worse than distorting an image. That's because they failed in their attempt to distort our image. I tell you that they failed as all polls in Lebanon, in the Arab world and in the Islamic world show today that this Resistance still enjoys very great respect in Lebanon and the region. However what is taking place now is worse than the attempt to distort the image which failed and for which millions of dollars were spent. They even acknowledge that hundreds of millions of dollars were spent.

What is taking place now is an attempt to strike and smash up the humanistic and social textile in Lebanon and set the atmosphere and background of factional and sectarian wars and sporadic civil wars. The final goal of such deeds is dragging the Resistance into ordeals and internal wars, and thus hitting the Resistance and toppling the authenticity of the Resistance. This is what is taking place now. I will give examples on that because we are all concerned in confronting what I do not want to call distorting the image of the Resistance. I would rather call it attacking the Resistance through striking the humanistic, social, sectarian textile in Lebanon. Are we able to confront that? Yes. As we could confront all the previous targets and conspiracies, frustrate them and overcome them, we can frustrate this target. I will talk more on this point in a while.

We may confront and frustrate this great event through being aware and responsible as I will clarify in a while. What do I mean by smashing up the social, political and humanistic textile in Lebanon?

Let's not hide behind our fingers. We all know that Lebanon is the country of sects. It is ruled with a sectarian composition. This is a fact. In as much as the relations between sects and their peoples and leaderships are good, strong, humanistic, moral and kind, the country will be ruled with cooperation, development and enhancement and will overcome all risks and challenges. On the other hand, in as much as the relations between and among sects especially are tense, convulsive and disputed and ruled with the logic of enmity and loath, nothing in this country may move forward properly or be reformed.

On the contrary, the leaderships who are responsible of sabotaging relations between sects in Lebanon are putting Lebanon on the path of annihilation, execution and being lost and smashed. This is the status quo in Lebanon. In countries other than Lebanon, things might not be as such. However in Lebanon whether we liked it or not the composition is as such. Everything in Lebanon takes a sectarian dimension instantly. Up till today, if anyone buys a piece of land to build a school on, his act will take a sectarian dimension. A trivial security incident takes a sectarian dimension.

They are working now on sabotaging the relations between the Lebanese sects and taking them to the farthest level of grudge and loathe, mistrust and enmity. Consequently, there remains no place for meeting, dialogue, cooperation and understanding to address local problems and to confront regional challenges thus to blow up the country as what took place in the past and put an end to it. So the target is Lebanon as a whole. However the target in particular is the Resistance which is embraced by the majority of the Lebanese.

If we are to interpret this idea without hiding behind our finger as I like to be transparent and clear we say: How do some internal and external sides act today? They act as if the essential Resistance currently belongs to the Shiite sect in Lebanon. As regarding the geographic fact, the Resistance exists on the border and it has direct contact with the Israelis. However, the majority in Lebanon embrace the Resistance apart from its belonging to a definite sect because they view the Resistance as a national cause, national responsibility and a national stance.

What are they doing? They want to focus on the relations between Christians and Sunnis and the extent to which they can sabotage them as well as the relations between the Christians and Druze and the relations among the Christians. They are working on all these levels. However the focus at this stage has to do with sabotaging all what has to do with the relations between Shiites and Sunnis, Shiites and Christians and Shiites and Druze. They are working on this. Well this has nothing to do with distorting the image but rather with sabotaging relations at a broader level. This is what they are working at through politics, the media, fabrications and accusations. I will not give evidences from a year, two, three, four or five ago. They are evidences which rather took place two or three weeks ago. At most they took place two or three months ago. Though they might be trivial evidences, they show the methodology and the mentality through which they act.

However, I would like to begin with giving evidences by what took place today to give it priority. It has to do with the indictment. Indeed at previous times we talked lengthily to the effect that the STL is moving in this perspective. It focused on one supposition. It refused to work on any other suppositions despite the existence of indications and conditional evidences through which Israel might be accused or investigating Israel would be valid. Still they are moving on that track and through the past period of time they accused four honorable Resistance men. Today either the complete text or the greater part of what is called the indictment of these Resistance men was published.

Some time ago, I was holding a discussion with the brethrens. I told them that if they were smart they won't publish the indictment or its content. They would rather defer that to the tribunal in abstentia and remain manipulating before us for two, three, four or five month. Only God knows until when. However may God make luck at our side and they publish the indictment. That's because when the indictment is published, that'll be something good. People would read and see this indictment and this great operation which they are working on internationally - and allow me to say on the Arab and local level.

What is its magnitude? What is it based on? How much objective, practical and factual is it? Anyway, I advise all those interested as well as the people to read the whole text though it consists of 45 pages because the issue is essential and a turning point. Here I assert to you that the group I will talk about today started since the first day and will hold a campaign in the coming few days in which they would praise the objectivity and practicality of what the indictment was based on saying they are firm, strong and decisive evidences and this is what indictment itself does not say.

I assert that the overwhelming majority of those who will say that did not in fact read the indictment. They will not bother themselves to read 45 pages. However some will write on their behalf and publish under their names. This is what takes place in Lebanon. Indeed in Lebanon when you see 20 to 30 positions issued at a time that does not mean that everyone of them sat down and wrote; rather it was written and published on their names. You know how such things move in Lebanon. Consider what I will say now a primarily comment on my behalf on what was published today. Here I will say the following:

First, what was published stresses the validity of what we have said during the past months and the past two years to the effect that this investigation is neither transparent nor scientific nor professional. This investigation has been leaked through Der Spiegel and Israeli, Arab and foreign newspapers. The Canadian CBC TV also published this indictment.

Frankly speaking, I call on all the Lebanese and non Lebanese to go back to Der Spiegel and the Canadian CBC TV and what was published in the past and compare it with this text. Let them see the faces of congruency and similarity in many places. Now they tried to hide some phone numbers and other details to say that the indictment is not wholly leaked. However this is it.

So everything we used to say on leakage and Bellemare as well as the STL used to deny while saying that no one is getting acquainted with the report and the investigation came to be true. Today their claims have been decisively confirmed. The proof is this published text. See the concordance between the text and Dir Spiegel, Le Figaro, Kuwaiti Asseyassiyeh, Yediot Ahronot, Canadian CBC and others. This asserts that the investigation was not confidential by any means. Everything was written in newspapers since 2009 and 2010 and even back since 2006.

The whole text does not provide any direct evidence. The only thing the indictment is based on is solely telecommunications data. Even more, in communication, the indictment refers to coincidence. So it is not based on that this phone number is in the net that assassinated. It is with so and so. It rather says that the number coincides in place and time with the number of so and so and with another that belongs to so and so. All what it depends on is communication. That needs much interpretation and time. They are few analyses and conclusions which have no legal value. Thus we find that the text repetitively and frequently uses the term "It is possible to conclude" or "It might be concluded in a possible way" or "Since cadres in Hizbullah in the 80s did such operations, it is possible that they did such an operation". What kind of evidence is this?

Anyway, as far as telecommunication is concerned there are two types of discussion:

The first discussion: Through the past year, through official sides, international conferences, international specialists and technicians and the Israeli collaborators who were arrested in the field of communication, the magnitude of Israeli technical and security control on the telecommunication sector in Lebanon was decisively asserted besides the Israeli and others' capability to manipulate the data, fabricating phone numbers and illusionary calls and even using phone numbers that belong to definite persons without their knowledge. This has been proven technically. This alone is enough to challenge the credibility of the communication evidences which the indictment claims resorting to.

Second: Even if we gave in and abandoned all this issue saying that there is no manipulation or Israeli intervention, no one is changing the data, no one fabricated phone calls and no one constructed place coincidences, what was mentioned is not sufficient to be an evidence. It is not a proof. This is even the viewpoint of senior judges who are specialized in this domain.

In all cases, the text is between our hands. It is based on conclusion and analysis and not on direct evidences. They are rather conditional evidences with challenged credibility.
To you sisters and to all the public opinion who are listening to me I say: Today we are more confident that what is taking place is of a high level of injustice, politicization and accusation. These honorable Resistance men should not even be referred to as accused. This is slander, and they are accused by this slander.

Anyway, I will stop here to carry on in my speech. The indictment which was issued today needs more scrutiny and analysis. This is what the brethrens in Hizbullah will dedicate themselves to during the coming few days. The appropriate comments will be thus issued God willing.

Going back to my speech, what does this act mean today? This act took place and names were made public while the ministerial statement was being discussed and confidence was being given to Premier Mikati. So it took place on particular timings just as when this issue was being evoked in the past. It is clear that since 2006 - August 2006 and following the war up till today - there has been a clear effort to sabotage the national relations especially between Sunnis and Shiites. Indeed now we are not talking anymore about martyr Premier Rafiq Hariri. Now we are talking about tens of martyrs, hundreds of wounded and hundreds of harmed and the like.

Well as far as the Shiite-Sunni issue is concerned, lately they tried to broaden the circle of accusation and link operations together until reaching the assassination of the leader of the Resistance Martyr George Hawi. Instead of being an indication to accuse Israel, they added this assassination to the others in which they accuse innocent oppressed at a time we all know that the first one to benefit and the first historic revenge seeker from George Hawi is Israel due to the position of this man and his party in the Resistance.

On the level of the other sects, they work on the same track. I will give small examples as evidences. If we add these evidences, they'll be numerous but I do not want to bother you with saying much.

The first evidence is the blast of Antelias. It is a simple incident. Two young men quarreled over money. It was not even proved that one of them wanted to throw the bomb on the other. Perhaps he was threatening or frightening him - Only God knows. The bomb exploded, and both men died. Their corpses were still on the ground.

O people! I will tell you about the mentality and the methodology. The corpses were still on the ground; still March 14 media outlets and figures started saying - even before the security apparatus and the judiciary body started investigation and before anyone knew what took place - that it was proved these two men came to plant a bomb in Antelias.

What was the topic which was used? They used targeting the security of the Christian regions! As soon as the names of the men were known and it was revealed that they belong to a definite sect - meaning they are Shiites - they immediately started their fabrications. The goal is to plant a bomb to threat and target the security of the Christian region. Can anyone tell me what is the aim of this logic which was not said by one figure or two?

Lengthy statements and wordy speeches were made. TV outlets made a scoop of it. Websites wrote on this topic for days. Some even openly claimed that Hizbullah was behind the incident. They said that Hizbullah dispatched these men to plant a bomb to target the security of the Christian regions. Note that in the case of the bombing in Ain Alaq, though they knew the doer and he was arrested and tried, they still insist on accusing a definite sect - namely Shiites. They mean to tell the Christians in Lebanon: The Shiites are targeting the security of your region, the security of your men, women and children and the security of your economy and tourism.

They waged a campaign based on Antelias bomb. For three or four days they did not stop. They did not take into consideration that it's summer - the tourism season in Lebanon. People might become afraid of going to that place. In fact, it is March 14 Bloc in the first place who is harming morals and afflicting peace, security and economy in the Christian regions. See the accusing conspiring mind they act with any simple incident. Since the first day, we were sure and we knew through the security forces and through sides in the Lebanese judiciary that the issue is that of a bomb and that it is a personal incident. Still, we said let's wait the official investigation and the judicial verdict. Still nobody was ready to listen. With March 14 Bloc, there's nothing called investigation, waiting or a true search for the truth. There is always an anticipated accusation and an anticipated verdict. So it is not only an anticipated accusation but also a ready anticipated verdict. They detect anything to comment on and issue verdicts on. This is one example.

I'll give another example on the Christian level before moving to the Druze level. I move to the conflict in the town of Lassa. I saw faces from March 14 dignitaries who talked on the problem of Lassa as if they were talking about the Resurrection Church in Al Qods. I then praised God. What took place in Lassa - a small village in Jbeil? There is a dispute over real estate between the town's residences and the Maronite church. They shed light on this dispute and made a big story about it. They worked on it for a week or two what complicates and does not solve the story. They accused Hizbullah in particular. Then they broadened the scope of accusation and accused the Shiites in Bin Jbeil of occupying the land of the Christians. This is the language which was used.

I swear by God Almighty that I didn't understand the story before they made their attack. I didn't know that there is a problem in Lassa. I asked the brothers to explain the problem in Lassa around which all this fuzz was made. Then it came to be that the problem is 70 or 80 years old. So it existed before I and perhaps my father was born. It existed before all those who belong to Hizbullah, Amal Movement or the Supreme Islamic Shiite Council were born. The issue has to do with real estate. It is an old rusty issue. It was addressed legally and judicially. A committee from the residences and the patriarchy was formed to address the issue. All of a sudden and at a political moment, the issue of Lassa was evoked to tell the Christians in Lebanon that you are targeted and see what you can do. What is the whole story? The whole story is Lassa.

On the Druze level, the story is funnier and you know I like to say things as they are. Few days ago, one of the brethrens in the Social Progressive Party called me saying that there is a definite state in the Mount. There is a state of fear, panic and anxiety among people. People want arms. They want to get armed. Well what is the story? They said that there is a hill near Aley which overlooks the region. It is a strategic hill and Hezbollah is erecting sand barricades there. Then March 14 Bloc websites were activated and some newspapers wrote headlines saying that cannons and rocket platforms were installed with the aim of addressing Mr. Walid Jumblat and the Socialist Progressive Party with a definite message. So they evoked a bad atmosphere. I started laughing when he told me so.

I asked him: Where? He said in Aley! Who went to erect the barricades in Aley? Well there is no problem. Aren't we the people who search for the truth? Let a man from Hizbullah and another from the Progressive 
Socialist Party go there and spot the sand which was said to be barricades and ask who brought them there so that we understand the story. Then it was revealed that the story has to do with the mayor. In fact, he is affiliated to the Progressive Socialist Party or a supporter or a friend of the party. As a municipality along with some people, they placed the barricades there. 

That had to do with a definite thing that has to do with the municipality and those people in particular. The issue had no security or military characteristic. It has nothing to do with Hizbullah or Shiites by whatever means. Still they fabricated on it for four or five days, security messages or political messages to the effect of targeting alliances and practicing pressure.

Well who benefits from that? Even if we talked about the peace, security and stability of people, who is benefiting from that? Who is making people feel worried? Isn't it this media and these anticipated verdicts?

Even on the economic level, is Aley or Dahiyeh a tourism region? Who is being hurt even on the economic or tourism level? However when that team work, they do not see tourism or economy or people's stability or fears. Well let the people be at peace for a couple of days. But no, that is impossible. They give the true incident magnified untrue dimensions and they also depict the untrue incident as true and try to build endless analyses on it. If I am to give you more evidences that will take much time. However I liked to say that much to say that this methodology and mentality are the very mentality and methodology we saw on February 14, 2005.

The body of Rafiq Hariri was still on the ground to be taken to the hospital when the accusation was made and the verdict was issued: Syria, the joint Lebanese-Syrian security system, the four officials, the security apparatuses... They were unjust to people. They hurled them in jail from the very first hour. They did not wait for the investigation, justice and courts.

I also want to make you laugh a little more. I told them that it seems we have to make a tour over the houses in Dahiyeh for example to make sure there are safety valves so that no gas bottle explodes again.

Now we became responsible even if a gas bottle explodes in Dahiyeh. For four or five days we remained explaining and stressing that it was a gas bottle. They said that so and so was martyred. Then they say the so and so cadre was killed. At times they say the son of the so and so cadre was killed. The Israeli media also adds to their stories. Well is it possible that a leader, a cadre or the son of a cadre in Hizbullah may be martyred and we hide that? Where do we hide our martyrs? Still they insist on their fabrications stubbornly.

Now, I am not joking. There is a team in Lebanon who is linked to a great project which failed in everything. Now you ask me: Is it possible that they do that? They do even more. During July War they provided the Israelis with advice. They made demands on the Israelis and put conditions for the ceasefire which are to the interest of Israel. Allow me along all the jokes we said to say this phrase and relieve myself: The gloomy, dark, miserable, desperate faces which we saw on August 14, 2006 do even more than that.

Well we have this mentality. On the contrary, this is our country. The people are our people. All the sects are our people whether Shiites, Sunnis, Druze or Christians in all regions. We are a people who want to live together. We want to carry on together. We want to solve our problems together. If we did not cooperate, unite, harmonize and agree, how are we to build our country and address our crises? We will confront even this? How? That is possible through being aware and through conformation. I call on the Lebanese not to accept all what is said in the media. I am not saying reject it. I am rather saying confirm and assert, ask and search for the truth. Be aware of the existing target on the national level. Premeditate, do not get excited, and do not issue anticipated verdicts. Through such a way it will be possible to overcome this stage.

I am personally optimistic because in fact, if we can today pass these ordeals that would be due to the presence of truthful faithful national leaderships from among all the various Lebanese sects. They form the guarantee against smashing this national textile and the guarantee against the sabotage of Lebanon and heading with it towards ordeal and partition.

Besides the existence of truthful and aware political, religious, cultural, media and social elites also who partake in the battle of awareness and confronting the conspiracy of sabotage, there is another guarantee - namely the awareness of the Resistance. The Resistance is aware that it is targeted as the Lebanese people are targeted. Because it is primarily targeted, the Resistance is aware in dealing with all these issues. Thus you find that we are not dragged into many political contests. We do not comment on many of the accusations. If we are only to answer back to the lies of these newspapers, magazines and TV outlets, we need some 200 to 300 brothers and sisters to work day and night and still they will not manage to keep pace with them. We do not want to be dragged because we know who is targeted. So through awareness, we may address the issue of being targeted.

We will end up with the hopes and expectation. In a couple of words I say: I assert to you, to all the Lebanese people and to all those who believe and support the Resistance in the Arab and Islamic world that these pressures, conspiracies, distortions and sabotage attempts will not harm the determination, will and belief of the Resistance in Lebanon at all. I assert to you that the Resistance will remain strong and able to protect Lebanon, the Lebanese people, the dignity of Lebanon, the sovereignty of Lebanon, the Lebanese water and oil wealth within the threefold golden equation: the army, the people and the Resistance.

I assert to you that this Resistance will remain adherent to Lebanon and all its people, national unity, civil peace, united army, strength and integrity, and all these conspiracies to sabotage Lebanon and cause sedition and civil war in Lebanon will be gone with the wind.
I assert to you that your Resistance which you support and believe in will be greater than sedition and greater than the oppression afflicting it. It will be greater than the accusations. We have a great tolerance power. This is where our power lies. Our strength is that it is not easy to provoke us.

Our strength is that we are not easily persuaded. Our strength is that our will is not easily harmed. Our strength is that our morals are linked to Heavens; thus the people of earth can not harm them. Whoever depends on God, God suffices him.

I finally say that as this Resistance has always been up to your expectations, it will remain as such. We are proud of your support; you are proud of its credibility and victories God willing.

I thank all the sisters in the Women's Branch in the Resistance Support Association in all regions on their will and efforts especially in holding this meeting. I thank you for this great attendance. I ask God Almighty to make all your days and years full of blessings, kindness and happiness. Hundred returns on you, the Resistance and Lebanon. Peace be upon you and God's mercy and blessings.

Al-Quds Day March tomorrow in London

Join IHRC’s annual Al Quds Day Demonstration on Sunday 21st August from Portland Place (assemble near BBC Radio) at 2pm to Trafalgar Square where a rally will take place in support of Palestine...

Forget the PA's games in the UN

Israel's shedding of Egyptian blood is just a great service towards dismantling the Camp David regime. Every Egyptian politician (mostly opportunists) trying to get office in Egypt now have to declare that they'll either scrap or 'review' the peace treaty with Israel due to public pressure. Zionism is doomed and Israel's days are numbered.

Cry Zionists

Once-safe Egyptian border becomes threat for Israel The Egyptian Revolution began when the gas supply to the thieving entity was cut off and the revolution will stay alive so long as the gas is still stopped. Having a safe southern border has been a key security benchmark of Zionism since the Camp David Accords. Once Egypt was taken out of the picture the terrorist state was able to launch attacks elsewhere at will e.g. the five Israeli invasions of Lebanon since 1978 (1978, 1982, 1993, 1996, 2006). The rules of the game have now been changed with the effective collapse of the Camp David regime in Sinai (and across all of Egypt.... God willing). Israel will not go down in one sudden burst, rather it shall suffer a series of defeats and failures until it is destroyed. Its annihilation is now one step closer with the Egyptian border becoming open for attacks again.

Its victims shall not be honoured until Zionism is annihilated

‎"Medics said the Palestinian, who was not identified, suffered "more than 10" gunshots to the head and upper body after soldiers east of the Al-Masdar area opened fire." No peace with Israel. No recognition of Israel. No negotiations with Israel.

The greatest sniper in the world shoots for Qadhafi

Reading this article you'd think Qadhafi only has one supporter left who just so happens to be superman "From the rooftops around the city’s Martyr’s Square, a single sniper has brought one wave of the assault along Libya’s western coast to something of a standstill."

Look at this headline, and people say Israel doesn't run the Egyptian government by proxy?

Israel approves extra 1,000 Egyptian troops in Sinai to ‘restore order’

For some fun

According to the Canadian Free Press the riots in England were caused by socialism.

Regional press condemn 'Arab silence' on Syria

The 'Regional Press' can go to Hell, the Syrian people are all alone. Look at these pathetic quoted pieces "Arabs should not be content with the positions they have taken so far against the barbarism of Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria." You think this mouthpiece of Prince Salman will ever describe the Saudi/Jordanian/Bahrani/Kuwait​i/Moroccan/UAE regime as barbaric? Of course the vast majority of the (Saudi/Qatari/Hariri owned) Arab press has been screaming about Syria non-stop.

Layla's story: jailed after reporting a sexual assault

NATO should bomb Britain and demand the overthrow of the regime for its treatment of women.

Egyptian Military Council, Israel's new lieutenants in Egypt

Egypt deploys thousands of troops and tanks in Sinai, in coordination with Israel Look at the headline. They don't even pretend the Military Council isn't sending troops into Sinai on the behalf of Israel.

Libyan regime tries to comment on British issues

"These youngsters, from black and working class communities, have legitimate demands to have better representation, better education and health services, better housing, jobs and more and equal opportunities." The rioters had political demands now? Clueless.

Ignored in almost all media

Hundreds of thousands of Yemeni people took to the streets of the capital Sana’a and the western port city of Hodeida after Taraweeh prayers to affirm the continuity of revolution approach and legitimacy as well as in honor of the martyrs’ blood.

Revisionism in the Guardian

"Fighting had begun in July 2006 when Hezbollah, the armed Islamic group that had been terrorising Israel with rocket attacks, went one step further and ambushed an Israeli patrol, killing two soldiers and kidnapping two more." Except that Hezbollah did not fire rockets at Israel until after Israel started bombing Lebanese civilians. The way this article puts it you'd think Hezbollah was firing rockets at Israel non-stop for ages AND THEN captured two Zionist terrorists. Of course the regular Israeli raids on Lebanon and kidnapping Lebanese don't count. Israeli war planes invade Lebanese airspace on a daily basis and their patrols frequently enter Lebanon, bomb Lebanese territory and kidnap Lebanese citizens (a Lebanese shepherd was kidnapped a few months ago) yet that's fine.

Who has a better record of defending Arabs than NATO?

"Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told visiting US Congressmen on Thursday that the security of the future Palestinian state will be handed to NATO under US command, his adviser said Friday." Him and NATO can go to Hell.

Protests of thieves

I would like to offer a deal to the Zionist protesters. Give back all the homes you stole from their owners and in return you can go live in the then emptied Palestinian refugee camps for very reasonable rent rates.

67% back death for Mubarak

Is Saudi Arabia really counter-revolutionary?

This is hilarious, apparently the Saudi regime is not counter-revolutionary because it supposedly supports uprisings against regimes it opposes. If the House of Saud is revolutionary then I support counter-revolution.

The moral decay of our society is as bad at the top as the bottom

This is a good article from a conservative perspective.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

"A leaked document revealing how the NTC in Libya plans to consolidate power post-Gaddafi suggests that many aspects of Gaddafi’s regime are likely to remain. Moreover, it suggests that, far from the future of Libya being determined by the Libyan people themselves, it will instead be shaped by a bunch of Western-approved groups jockeying for power, many of whom were formerly Gaddafi’s cronies."


Iranian humour

A senior Iranian lawmaker says Iran's Majlis (parliament) is ready to send a group of human rights rapporteurs to the UK to investigate human rights violations in the country. This is how whenever some incident or election happens in the Middle East or much of the Third World the Western powers feel the need to send 'observers' to make sure everything's going how it should be. I'd love it if in the next general election the Iranian regime sends some monitors to Britain to walk around polling stations with their arms folded checking everyone knows how to put a tick in a box properly.

No one can say Nick Clegg got it wrong

Idiot West Midlands Police Chief

Watch this video from 2 minutes in. When asked if they had any intelligence on this they said "We had Twitter intelligence at lunchtime", is Twitter Intelligence an official police term now? So this is what they do all day, sit on computers looking on Twitter and Facebook pretending they're doing something useful. Oh and apparently they then "made a spontaneous plan". Doesn't the very nature of a "plan" kind of contradict spontaneousness? She means you had no plan and just made it up as you went along. Oh and she says we have the rioters on CCTV and will arrest them, admitting the police don't consider their job to prevent crime, merely to sit back and watch/allow it to happen and then arresting whoever they can later when it's 20 police officers against 1 person in their house. I assure you the vast majority of those who committed real crimes will not be touched and most of those arrested will not be the real criminals but just some unwise curious kids who went out to have a look and didn't know the right time to get out of there. The police are very brave against the weak but are too cowardly to go after real criminals. That's before I even mention the biggest criminals of all who created this mess in the first place (bankers, politicians, CEOs...)

Dammit, could have worked...

Security forces shot dead a gunman as he opened fire on the Jeddah palace of Saudi interior minister Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz early on Saturday, said a source close to the government.

Bit by bit revolutionary forces still making progress in Egypt

An Egyptian trade union federation that was used by the government to repress labour activism has been dissolved, dismantling another powerful component of Hosni Mubarak's dictatorship.

Mubarak: It wasn't me, it was this other bloke

Mubarak blames Tantawi for internet cut.

Criticising Israel does not make you a good journalist

"Or even His Highness King Abdullah, Guardian of the Three Holy Places in a place called Saudi Arabia?" THREE Holy Places??? For God's sake please sack Robert Fisk.

Tarif Khailidi

Am currently reading Tarif Khailidi's brilliant translation of the Qur'an. Look at how he renders this verse: "Oh believers, bear in patience, be steadfast in the fight, keep to your battle stations and fear God - perhaps you will prevail." (3:200)

The just recognised legitimate government of Libya

The pro-NATO ex-Qadhafi Libyans are in a right mess. "The killing of a top rebel commander, Gen. Abdul Fatah Younis, by his own men Thursday exposed divisions within a rebel movement now facing rising anger from Younis' powerful Obeidi tribe. The rebel Transitional National Council seemed paralyzed by the killing, issuing a disingenuous communique that refused to acknowledge that a dissident rebel faction had killed Younis.

On Sunday, rebel militiamen engaged in a shootout here with militiamen described as "fifth column" saboteurs loyal to Kadafi. The firefight underscored the deep fissures along tribal and political fault lines, pitting ex-Kadafi loyalists against former street protesters and tribal-based militias.

Meanwhile, the council is desperately short of cash and fuel as its poorly trained fighters struggle to make headway against the government's military.

Saudi Arabia ambassador denies funding Egypt’s Salafists and Muslim Brotherhood

The representative of the Usurpers of the Two Holy Places hath spoken.

Maspero employees continue protest

"A group of employees at the State TV and Radio building tried to take control of the studios on the second floor today morning, trying also to stop news crews on their way to the studios in an escalation of their ongoing protest. Security sealed off and secured the whole floor."

Mubarak's heirs.

On the killers of `Abdul-Fatah Yunis

The February 17 Martyrs Brigade is a group made up of hundreds of civilians who took up arms to join the rebellion. Their fighters participate in the front-line battles with Gaddafi's forces, but also act as a semi-official internal security force for the opposition. Some of its leadership comes from the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, an Islamic militant group that waged a campaign of violence against Gaddafi's regime in the 1990s.

Agoury said the brigade had an agenda against Younis because he was previously Gaddafi's interior minister and was involved in the crackdown that crushed the LIFG.
Sounds nice to me. Now take out Mahmud Jibril, Mustafa `Abdul-Jalil and the other NATO/former Qadhafi goons. The Arab world was long overdue a good assassination.

15 dead in rebel-feuding in Binghazi

Libyan War is becoming a three-sided conflict (I don't believe the group behind the assassination of Yunis are Qadhafi agents or whatever). Pretty funny how this all kicked off right after the UK recognised them as the legitimate government of Libya. I hope for chaos, it's better than the other options for now.

All Lebanese can sleep peacefully now, Lord Gaga hath spoken.

"“The Lebanese Army, not you,
will deal with our oil installations in the event they were exposed to risk,” Geagea told a news conference..."
Of course everyone remembers the Lebanese Army's legendary defence against the Israeli invasion in 2006.

Mubarak's trial coming up

Bring him in a cage like the ones he put the killers of Anwar As-Sadat for their trial.

Israel says it doesn't need Egypt's gas

This is like when the IDF said they never wanted to conquer Bint Jbeil anyway.

Report anarchists to the police

According to the police: "Anarchism is a political philosophy which considers the state undesirable, unnecessary, and harmful, and instead promotes a stateless society, or anarchy. Any information relating to anarchists should be reported to your local police." I didn't realise someone being opposed to the existence of states was a criminal/police matter? By the way police, did you know that Anarchists cannot draw straight lines since they have no rulers? That's a sure way to spot them.

Attack on Sinai police station

"Al Arish’s military commander told Egyptian state television that those responsible for the attack were connected to Mohammed Dahlan..." Come on, as if Dahlan would do it.

Pipeline to Terrorist Entity bombed again

HAHAHAHA. Actually this is the sixth time but the second bombing didn't work properly and didn't explode the pipe. God reward you, whoever you may be.

A Hamas leader says it like it is, for once

"He says the pro-Western Fayyad, an internationally respected economist, "is not a nationalist, he is a collaborator."

Libyan rebels have conceded ground since bombing began

"The regime controls around 20 per cent more territory than it did in the immediate aftermath of the uprising on 17 February." A big thank you to all those liberal humanitarian interventionists who supported bombing Libya (as well as the creepy AWL). Liberals are people who principally oppose wars that began years ago, they were overwhelmingly in support of the Iraq and Afghanstan invasions in 2003 and 2001. Tell them to oppose wars when it isn't fashionable to do so.

Fayyad seeks $300 million to ease cash crisis

The purported leaders of Palestinian revolution beg for funding from the Arab Dictators League... Stuff like this is why I cannot be optimistic about the UN resolution in September. Revolutionaries ought never to ask for money, they should never need to.

Bashar resigns?

So the Syrian regime is going to pass a law allowing political parties so long as they have "commitment to the constitution, principles of democracy and the rule of law". So surely the Ba`th Party is going to be banned then?

Zionism = Racism

Palestinians are no longer bagging groceries most days at the Rami Levi supermarket at the Gush Etzion junction, after a romance between a Palestinian bagger and a Jewish cashier spurred local rabbis to demand that Levi take action.

UN report in Mavi Mamara delayed again

The Mossad idiots are at it again

"Man killed in Iran shooting was student, not nuclear scientist... A mix-up over names apparently led to initial reports that the man slain in Tehran was a scientist involved in the country's nuclear program."

Saudi in-fighting

How amazing is this? The Arab world is in upheaval and the Saudi King and his likely successors are all in their 80s and incapacitated through illness. Bring on the internal power struggles and backstabbing. Imagine if Prince Nayif or Bandar ends up becoming King? It could happen very soon!

Mossad in New Zealand?

"Yes, there was some regrettable history of Mossad involvement in New Zealand in 2004, and they have apologised for that and we have put it beyond us." Yeah right.
"However, sources said the SAS had entered the zone to secure sensitive material belonging to the Israeli nationals now at the centre of the spying claims."
"1:14 Comment From Steven

What if the Israeli backpackers were just that, not young spies at all? How does a Government - Israel or NZ - ever successfully deny anything sinister?

If all was innocent PM Key would have simply said so. His statement that it "is not in the national interest" to discuss the matter pretty much let the cat out of the bag""

No recognition of the usurping entity

Does the Arab world have no shame? The Al-Arabiyyah tv station is pleased to bring you an 'exclusive interview' with Bibi Netanyahu...

New Egyptian Foreign Minister

Heh, the Military Council replaces the former Ambassador to Israel with the former Ambassador to Saudi Arabia... Out of all the diplomatic missions to all the countries in the world to find a Foreign Minister they had to pick those two. Not that there's a Saudi-Zionist alliance of course.

Zionists fear diminished Murdoch

You can always trust Zionists to side with the worst side on every issue.

Song of the Day

They're not your houses in the first place. Give them back to their owners.

This story makes me want to explode. How dare these thieves demand some kind of more equitable division of the homes they stole.

Jumu`ah anecdotes

In Jumu`ah last Friday at the end someone stood and said to everyone "I think the khutbah was too long it went on for over 45 minutes, it should not be more than about 20 minutes. Could those who agree with me raise your hands." and lots of people did. Then the man who gave the khutbah raised his hand as well and apologised for going on too long.

Hezbollah blamed for bombing in Turkey now

"Quoting Washington sources..." Heh. I wonder if blaming attacks in Turkey on Hezbollah might be part of this filthy Israeli-Turkish reproachment.

Zionism = Racism

"Last year we discovered that there are many gentiles arriving at the beaches, but not in search of the sun or water," said Benzi Gopstein, one of Lehava's leaders.

"Due to the multiple complaints," he explained, "we decided to promote a campaign at the start of the bathing season this year in order to prevent situations in which girls discover that the 'Yossi' they are dating is actually 'Yusuf', prevent sexual harassment and assimilation.

"The volunteers handing out the leaflets are all seculars, as the religious public only visits segregated beaches, which don't have the Arab problem. We've also started distributing a clip on Facebook and YouTube and we hope the girls will open their eyes."

Note the bolded part, yet Ynet still gives the sideheading 'Religious Baywatch'. Ynet tends to act like racism or general stupidity in Israel comes from the religious sectors which polls show simply isn't true, the racism is everywhere. For one thing Orthodox or Haredi women don't go to beaches meeting men in the first place.
