14 Signs Which Show That The World Economy Is Getting Weaker


From Weak to Increasingly Weaker Until it Finally Collapses
There is No Solution for the Dying World Economy

There is Too Much Greed, and Even Worse,
Evil Intentions For it To Recover

World Economy

The United States is not the only one with massive economic problems right now.  The truth is that just about wherever you look around the globe things are getting even worse.  China is experiencing a substantial economic slowdown, and Japan has resorted to yet another round of money printing in an effort to keep the Japanese economy moving.  Unemployment in Europe continues to get even worse, and the riots this week in Spain and in Greece have been absolutely frightening at times.  In the United States there are a whole host of signs that another recession is approaching, and the number of American CEOs that say that they plan to eliminate jobs in the coming months is rapidly rising.

The world economy is more interconnected today than ever before, and that means that we are all in this together.  Just remember what happened back in 2008 and 2009.  The economic pain that started on Wall Street was felt in every corner of the planet.  So, anyone that believes that the United States (or any other major nation for that matter) is going to escape the next wave of the economic crisis is simply not being realistic.

Why do you think central banks all over the world are in “panic mode” right now?  They are firing all of their ammunition and printing money like there is no tomorrow in an attempt to keep the system together.  Unfortunately, it is not going to work.

If the powers that be had an “easy button” that would quickly fix everything, they would have pressed it by now.  But despite all of their efforts things continue to unravel.  If you want to get an idea of where we are headed,  just look at what is already happening in Europe.   Unemployment has risen above 24 percent in Greece and above 25 percent in Spain.

Those two nations are on the “bleeding edge” of the next wave of economic problems.  Unemployment is rising almost everywhere else in Europe as well, and things are eventually going to get really bad in Asia and in North America too.

So hold on to your seat belts — it is going to be a bumpy ride.

The following are 14 signs from around the globe that the world economy is getting weaker….

  1. Things in China do not look good right now.  The Shanghai Composite index fell to its lowest point in over 3 years earlier this week.  Will the S&P 500 soon follow suit?
  2. The Bank of Japan has resorted to yet another round of money printing in a desperate attempt to try to bolster the faltering Japanese economy….
    1. In Asia, the Bank of Japan has long been manufacturing money out of thin air. It has just announced an eighth round of money printing to prop up the ailing Japanese economy. The Bank of Japan is to purchase 10 trillion yen of bonds to add further liquidity into the financial system. Now it has 80 trillion yen of bonds in its portfolio, equivalent to 20 per cent of Japan’s gross domestic product.
  3. In Spain, violent demonstrations over the state of the Spanish economy just outside the national Parliament building in Madrid on Tuesday evening made headlines all over the globe.  You can view video of police brutally beating young Spanish protesters during those demonstrations right here.
  4. As unemployment hovers around the 25 percent mark, foraging through garbage bins for food has become so rampant in Spain that one city has actually started putting locks on supermarket garbage bins “as a public health precaution“.
  5. Despite all of the money printing that the ECB has been doing, the yield on 10 year Spanish bonds has risen back up to about 6 percent again.
  6. The economic protests in Greece are getting completely and totally out of control.  Just check out this description of the “Day of Rage” that took place in Greece earlier this week….
    1. Police fired stun grenades and tear gas at protesters yesterday as tens of thousands poured into the streets of Athens as part of a nationwide strike to challenge a new round of austerity measures that are expected to cut wages, pensions and healthcare once again.
    2. Dozens of youths, some masking their faces with helmets and T-shirts, hurled Molotov cocktails and rocks at police who fired back in an effort to scatter the angry crowds around the parliament building. More than 50,000 people are believed to have participated in the mass walk-out in Athens alone.
  7. The unemployment rate in France has risen for 16 months in a row and is now the highest that it has been in over a decade.
  8. As I wrote about recently, the number of unemployed workers in Italy has increased by more than 37 percent over the past year.
  9. New orders for durable goods in the United States fell by a whopping 13.2 percent in August.  That was the largest decline that we have seen since the middle of the last recession (January 2009).
  10. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. GDP only grew at a 1.3 percent annual rate during the second quarter of 2012 as opposed to the 1.7 percent annual rate previously reported.
  11. The U.S. Postal Service is about to experience its second financial default in just the past two months….
    1. The U.S. Postal Service will default this week on a $5.6 billion congressionally mandated obligation to pre-fund retiree health benefits, marking the second time in two months the cash-strapped agency has done this.
  12. It looks like General Motors is on a path that will lead to bankruptcy (again).
  13. According to a recent survey conducted by State Street Global Advisors, 71 percent of “investors in a survey of 300 around the world, including the largest pension funds, asset managers and private banks, fear an imminent Lehman-like event.”
  14. According to a recent survey of American CEOs by Business Roundtable, the number of CEOs that plan to eliminate jobs has risen significantly from earlier this year….

The CEOs’ decline in confidence comes alongside a worsening employment outlook. Thirty-four percent of the 138 CEOs surveyed said in this quarter’s survey that they expected their companies to cut jobs in the next six months, compared to just 20 percent in the second quarter. Likewise, only 29 percent say they expect employment to grow in the next half year, down from 36 percent last quarter.

But the mainstream media in the United States would like us to believe that everything is getting better.  The mainstream media would like us to believe that QE3 is going to stimulate lots of new hiring all over America, and they are greatly celebrating the fact that the S&P 500 hit a five year high on Thursday.

Protest in Spain

Well, those on Wall Street should celebrate this monetary “sugar high” while they still can.  Of course QE3 was going to cause stock prices to rise in the short-term, but the reality of the matter is that QE3 is not going to do a thing to stop the financial markets from crashing when the time comes for them to crash.

Economies tend to flourish in a stable, predictable environment.  When you start recklessly printing money, it may help your economic numbers in the short-term, but it disrupts the stability of the system.

And once you have created a tremendous amount of instability, it is really, really hard to convince people that you can create stability once again.

When it comes to economics, confidence is one of the most important ingredients.  If people lose confidence in the system, it almost does not matter what else you do.

As I wrote about the other day, quantitative easing worked for the Weimar Republic for a little while, but in the end it resulted in total disaster.

It will also end in total disaster for us.

All over the globe financial authorities are playing all sorts of games in an attempt to keep the system functioning smoothly.  But these games are going to steadily undermine confidence in the system, and that is going to prove to be absolutely deadly.

Take advantage of this period of relative stability while you still can, because when it is gone it is not coming back.

A US General Says The Muslim Brotherhood Has Infiltrated The U.S. Government


Well, of Course, Obama is a “Brother” from the Muslim “Hood”

Obama is a Foreign Traitor Bent on Destroy America and Israel

U.S. Army Lieutenant General (Ret.) William Jerry Boykin
claims that individuals with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood
hold security clearances in both the Pentagon and the Department of Defense.

.

General Boykin

.

Boykin says Republicans should have listened to Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn), who was correct to be concerned over possible Muslim Brotherhood ties of Huma Abedin, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff. Boykin says politicians on both sides of the aisle are scared to pursue the truth on this, for fear of being branded “intolerant,” and the result of their inaction is continued infiltration by the radical Islamic organization.

He claims that people with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood hold important positions “in every major federal agency.”

Boykin was one of the original members of the Army’s Delta Force, served in clandestine operations for the CIA, and was formerly a Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence.

Breaking Down The ‘Innocence of Muslims’ False Flag Operation


Another US False Flag Operation on 9/11 to Elicit a Response

What’s Behind the Video Name Change?

Who Really Was Behind the Video?

.

Innocense of Muslims

Click to Watch the Full-Length Movie

To tell the truth I could not pass but a few minutes of this extremely ridiculous movie. Immediately I thought that its obvious intention is to deeply insult and enrage the always barbaric and murderous Muslim mobs of the world. Even though it is a fact that Islam is a religion of war, bigotry, pedophilia and all kinds of human-right abuses; and despite the fact that false prophet Mohammed was himself a lying murderous pedophile, who communicated with debukim (demons), none of that is an excuse to produce a movie so filthy and empty of the many hard realities concerning Mohammed and Islam in a cinematographically normal way.

Because of the above I immediately became convinced that the ‘Innocense of the Muslim’ video is a False Flag Operation of the government of the United States created with the intention of raising the bestial Islamic mobs of the world, thus creating a worldwide version of the Arab Spring 2.0. Now a popular Youtuber with the same impression offers his opinion on the anti-Muslim false flag video that supposedly lead to the mass rape and murder of a US Ambassador and caused widespread rioting throughout the world.

All evidence points to the fact that the release of this movie was absolutely a false flag designed to cause chaos and further divide the populace.

The Betrayal of Israel By Hidden Islamist Barack Hussein Obama Is Undeniable And Evident


History not only repeats itself to boredom,
but also to tragic, repeated, and totally unnecessary consequences

In recovery and pop psychology circles there is a widely popularized definition of insanity which goes:  “Insanity is repeating over and over the same action while expecting a different result.”  What an undebatable truism!

Israel has run down many times the same treaded path upon which we are at this moment with respect to the genocidal bellicosity of an enemy (currently Iran) the emboldened Muslim Arab mob of the Middle East, and the hope and trust that many in Israel — chief among them the last several governments — have deposited on a deceitful “friend” (currently America).  Yes, yestercentury our hope was on the help of Egypt, and nowadays we do the same with the United States of America.  Make no mistake, the result shalll surely be the same; and if we expect something different is because we are entirely delusional, and therefore insane.

Isaiah 31:1
Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help and rely on horses; and to those who trust in chariots because they are many, and in horsemen because they are very strong, but they do not look for the The Holy One of Israel, neither seek HaShem!

.

Isaiah 36:6
Behold, you trust in the staff of this broken reed — on Egypt — on which if a man leans it will go into his palm and pierce it!  So is Pharaoh King of Egypt to all that trust in him.

.

Isaiah 36:9
How then will you turn away the face of one Officer of the least of my Master’s Servants, and put your trust upon Egypt for chariots and for horsemen??!!

.

2 King 15-17
15  And when the servant of the Man of G-d (Prophet Elisha) was risen early, and went forth, behold, an army surrounded the city with horses and chariots.   And his servant said unto him: “Oy, my lord!  What shall we do?”  16  And he answered, “Do not fear because those who are with us are many more than those that are with them.”  17  And Elishah prayed and said:  “Hashem, open now his eyes so that he can see.”  And HaShem opened the eyes of the servant and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire were all around Elishah.

Anti-Semite US president Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) may very well have told American Jewish leaders who came to him pleading for his help in the rescue of the trapped Jews of Europe in the early 1940s something similar to what was uttered by president Barack Obama last March at the AIPAC conference in Washington: “There should not be a shred of doubt by now: when the chips are down, I have Israel’s back.” Like his Democratic Party predecessor, Obama has deceivingly expressed comforting words to American Jewish leaders, but has refrained from taking decisive action that would substantiate his words. An example of which is the last round of sanctions against Iran that were brought to the President’s desk in December 2011 by Senators Menendez (D) and Kirk (R), and endorsed in the Senate 100-0, that Obama sought to change the language of and diminish its intent.

Republican U.S. Congressman Hamilton Fish (R-NY) accused FDR in the 1940s, as news of death camps was unfolding, of “spiritual anesthesia” for not taking a stand to save the European Jews. According to Fish FDR’s silence may have been the deciding factor in Hitler’s execution of the “Final Solution.”  Fish argued that had “FDR made a definitive announcement out of the White House, it might well have stopped the megalomaniac Hitler or at least brought home the truth to the German and Polish people, most of whom probably knew little of Hitler’s extermination policy.”

Obama is a Muslim enemy of IsraelIn a similar vein, had Obama made a definitive statement that declared America’s “red lines” on Iran’s nuclear weapons development, and the consequences for Tehran of crossing such lines, the present situation, which threatens the lives of six million Jews in Israel and elsewhere, would not have arisen.  Instead, Obama dispatched the chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff General Martin Dempsey to express opposition to a unilateral Israeli military action against Iran.  Dempsey shamelessly said in London, “I don’t want to be complicit if they (Israel) choose to do it.”  Evidently he and his nefarious boss in Washington prefer to be complicit in the genocide of more than 6,000,000 Jews in Israel, thus equating themselves to the Nazis of Germany.

According to the September 3, 2012 Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot,

The Obama administration, informed Iran via two European nations, that it would not back an Israeli strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities, as long as Tehran refrains from attacking American interests in the Persian Gulf.”

Obama is a Muslim traitorIn late March of this year, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton told Fox News that the Obama administration leaked a story which revealed that Israel had been granted access to airfields in Azerbaijan located along Iran’s northern border.  Bolton was responding to a Foreign Policy magazine article, and stated on Fox “I think this leak today is part of the administration’s campaign against an Israeli attack on Iran.”  He went on to say that a strike from Azerbaijan “would be much easier for the Israelis than a strike launched from their own country — jets could stay over their target longer and worry less about refueling.”  Bolton added, that “tipping the Israelis’ hand by revealing very sensitive, very important information could frustrate such a plan.”

In his book, ‘Obama’s Betrayal of Israel’, author Michael Ledeen provides evidence that President Obama is uninterested in Israel’s security and that he constantly sends messages to the world to that effect.  Ledeen writes that Obama personally attended a ceremony awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Israel basher Mary Robinson.  She is the former Irish PM and the UN official who presided over the infamous anti-Israel Durban Conference in 2001.

Obama’s claim that American support for Israel is “unbreakable” is either naïve or disingenuous.  Clearly, one cannot claim to be dedicated to Israel’s security and at the same time advocate a Palestinian State.  Hamas declares its intentions to eradicate the Jewish state openly and regularly, while in Ramallah, Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas seeks a unity government with Hamas, and rejects direct negotiations with Israel.  But there is more

  1. Earlier this year Obama authorized $192 million to go the Palestinian Authority.
  2. He lifted the ban on financial aid to the Palestinian Authority imposed by the U.S. Congress, claiming that it was “important to the security interests of the United States”!
  3. Similarly, Obama continues to support the Muslim Brotherhood regime in Cairo with $1.2 billion in U.S. taxpayer money.
  4. At the same time, Obama is refusing to meet Netanyahu later this month, following his humiliating treatment of Netanyahu on a previous visit to the Obama White House.

Israelis, according to Ledeen, get the picture, and in a recent poll, only 4% of Israelis said that they thought B. Hussein Obama’s policies were supportive of Israel.  In other words, 96% considered Obama unfriendly towards Israel.  Actually, we believe he is an Islamic enemy of Israel.

There are two ways to implement the destruction of Israel is:

  1. to enable Iran to acquire nuclear weapons and
  2. tie Israel’s hands by preventing it from striking Iran preemptively while there is still time.

Well, Obama has blocked Israel from destroying Iran’s nuclear facilities, and he is shameless and tirelessly doing all he can to make sure Iran gets the time it needs to produce a nuclear bomb.  The useless 5+1 talks with Iran certainly bought time for Iran, and the U.S. sanctions imposed against Iran have had some impact on the Iranian economy, but didn’t halt Iran’s race towards a nuclear weapon.

Obama is as well aware of these facts just as FDR knew of the gas chambers in Auschwitz.  Another way of undermining Israel is by fostering a terror-prone “Palestinian” State, and that is what Obama has done.

In a recent interview on Israel’s Arutz Sheva, former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Zalman Shoval said that Israeli and U.S. interests diverged when it came to Iran. “We need to get used to the fact that, as usual, we are alone.”  A diplomat, Shoval was careful not to point a finger at Obama but the implications of Obama’s policies are clear. Shoval did however compare the current situation with the days before the Six Day War, when Israel received no support from the Johnson Administration, and was told point-blank by President Johnson that if Israel took the initiative and attacked Egypt, it would have to suffer the consequences, despite the fact that Egypt had committed an act of war by closing off the Straits of Tiran.

The difference today, as compared to 1967, is that Israel’s enemy – Iran – might use a nuclear weapon that could incinerate a sizeable portion of Israel.

According to Shoval, the U.S. knows that it must prevent Iran from going nuclear – not to save Israel, of course, but to save its strategic position in the world, and in the Middle East in particular. Eventually, Shoval said, the U.S. might act, but by the time they do it may be too late. The U.S., he added, wants to put off the confrontation with Iran for a year or two, but every delay gives the Iran another advantage. Obama, as Shoval sees it, is much more interested in being reelected than dealing with the Iranian threat. And, should he be reelected, his domestic concerns, i.e. the economy, will trump national security issues such as Iran.

The Iranian-based Press TV reported on September 11, 2012 that “The U.S. rebuffed Israel over Iran ‘red lines’.”  Prime Minister Netanyahu had called for the U.S. to declare “red lines” over Tehran’s nuclear program on Sunday (9/9/12), warning that in the absence of such a statement Iranian officials would not take seriously Washington’s implied threat of military action. “The sooner we establish one, the greater the chances that there won’t be a need for other types of action,” he told Canada’s CBC News. Asked on Sunday (9/9/12) whether the administration would set out red lines or deadlines, Hillary Clinton, the U.S. Secretary of State replied on Bloomberg Radio that “We are not setting deadlines.”

In an entry in Assistant Secretary of State Breckinridge Long’s dairy on October 3, 1940, he noted that President Roosevelt (FDR) supported his policy of encouraging U.S. consulates to “postpone, and postpone and postpone” the granting of visas to European Jews.  This is reminiscent of Obama’s policy of postponing action against Iran.  The results may be the same, the betrayal of Israel’s Jews … but this time around HaShem is going to pass the final Bbill to America.  Some or many Jews shall fall but the total doom of America is truly at hand.

Expert On Genocides Warns He Sees Iran On The Path To Commit One Against Israel


Unlike Hurricanes, Says the World Expert, Genocides Are Predictable.
And Iran IS Following the Pattern of Committing a Genocide!

Gregory Stanton, Founder of Genocide Watch,
says Iran has taken 6 of the 8 steps to commit Genocide.
But it’s NOT Late to Follow Canada’s Preventative Lead.

.

Genocide is neither linear nor “inexorable.” It is, rather, predictable and preventable, so long as you recognize the universal signs. And Iran, in its language and action, has taken six of the eight steps on the path to genocide, according to Dr. Gregory Stanton, the world’s foremost  expert on the matter.

Stanton, the founder and director of Genocide Watch, the world’s first organization to deal exclusively with this issue, and the author of an historic two-page paper on the nature of genocide, spoke at the Hebrew University medical school last week. He called for an international campaign to abolish the recurring crime of genocide and for the world to take action, as Canada has, to ostracize Iran and curb its genocidal intent.

Talk of genocide, Stanton said — of removing a cancer or crushing a cockroach — is never just talk. “One of the best predictors of genocide is incitement to genocide,” he said, “and I believe that is exactly what Iran is doing today.”

Genocide Watch founder and director Greg Stanton

Encouraging genocide is a crime. The UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide was signed in 1948 and fathered by Raphael Lemkin, a Jewish Polish lawyer who studied the genocide of the Armenians and invented the term in 1943 – “genos” meaning race or people and “cide” to kill. The Convention states that incitement “with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group” is illegal.

Late last week, on precisely those grounds, Canada severed its ties with Iran. John Baird, the minister of foreign affairs, announced that the Iranian regime “engages in racist anti-Semitic rhetoric and incitement to genocide.”

He gave Iranian diplomats five days to leave the country.

Stanton and Dr. Elihu Richter, a professor emeritus at the Hebrew University’s medical school and the founder of the Jerusalem Center for Genocide Prevention, both hailed the decision.

Richter called it “mighty” and said that the Canadian declaration “sets a powerful precedent for intervening to prevent genocide and genocidal terror by going at the early predictive causes and catalysts, rather than waiting for the body count.”

The two are seeking to drag Iran before the International Court of Justice in The Hague, where state actors can prosecute one another. Neither the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs nor the Prime Minister’s Office could confirm whether Israel had encouraged Canada to file charges against Iran for incitement to genocide.

The Predictable Pattern

Recognizing the early signs, spotlighting them and prosecuting those encouraging the killings are some of the ways to prevent a genocide. Ignoring them, dismissing them as diabolical rhetoric or as a tactic meant to advance a different goal, is to enable the perpetrators, Stanton said.

Often, genocide goes unrecognized. In the opening slide of Stanton’s lecture three perplexed diplomats, clutching attaché cases that label them as representing the EU, the US and the UN, look around at a patch of desert, Darfur, that is stained with the bodies of the dead.  “Well…” says one; “Genocide, genocide…” says another; “Difficult question…” says the third.

Over the years Stanton realized that all genocides follow eight stages. They are, in this order: classification, symbolization, dehumanization, organization, polarization, preparation, extermination and denial.  He said:

Iran has classified and symbolized Israel through exclusionary ideology and hate speech; dehumanized it – “overcoming the normal human revulsion against murder” — by portraying the potential victims as a “cancer” in need of eradication; organized fanatical militias (the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps); polarized the society by repressing dissent and arresting moderates;  prepared for the killing by denying a past genocide and by constructing weapons of mass destruction; and, through global terrorism, even begun the seventh of his eight stages: extermination.

Genocide

Places, like this church in Rwanda, could have been safe havens for the Tutsi people who sought shelter in them, but in the weeks leading up to the genocide, the international so-called “peacekeepers” were purposefully withdrawn, and 800,000 innocent people were massacred

In the past century alone there have been 55 genocides, leaving 70 million people dead, Stanton said. The Armenians, the Jews and the Tutsi of Rwanda were the rare examples of one group’s campaign to destroy another group in its entirety, he said; more often, the case is that one group seeks to partially eradicate another– perhaps the educated classes or those living in a certain geographic region. For instance, in 1971, Pakistani forces killed somewhere between 300,000 and three million Bangladeshis. They did not seek to annihilate all Hindus in what was then known as East Pakistan, but the crime, Stanton said, must be considered a genocide.

The Call to Service

Stanton, a small-town Illinois native and the son of a Presbyterian pastor, realized he had to devote his life to the prevention of genocide in 1981, while sitting in the office of a Yale psychiatrist.

A graduate of the Harvard Divinity School with a PhD in cultural anthropology from the University of Chicago, he was in his second year at Yale Law School, recently back from a year in Cambodia, where he had worked for the Church World Service, bringing relief to the victims of the Khmer Rouge. He and his wife had adopted a daughter there and he should have been happy, he said, but instead he had slipped into a deep depression. His wife insisted he see a psychiatrist, who asked what was bothering him. He told of the mass graves and the survivor testimonies and the little corpse in the tattered Mickey Mouse t-shirt.

The doctor told him that if he weren’t depressed there would be something wrong with him. The doctor added that he, like many others who have studied depression, feel it is a form of repressed anger. “Then he looked at me and said: ‘What are you angry about?’” Stanton recalled.

Stanton’s response: the fact that the Khmer Rouge had organized and perpetrated the killing of 1.7 million Cambodians and still remained in power.

From that moment on the prevention of genocide became his life’s work. He founded the Cambodia Genocide Project and spent decades pushing for the indictment of those responsible. He helped establish the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and was awarded the American Foreign Service Association’s W. Averell Harriman Award for “intellectual courage and creative accomplishment.”

Nonetheless, in the late nineties, he was fired from the State Department. His supervisor, frustrated with his efforts to document what he called “the appalling cowardice” of the US State Department in April 1994 — when it voted to withdraw all UNAMIR peacekeepers in Rwanda in the face of a mounting genocide — wrote the type of evaluation that he knew would eventually terminate his career. “Greg apparently does not understand that the State Department is a hierarchical organization,” he quoted, with obvious pleasure, during the lecture.

Before leaving the State Department, he wrote the two-page paper that is at the heart of his presentation and work.

Since then, Stanton, a descendant of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Henry Brewster Stanton – a founder of the woman’s liberation movement and an abolitionist – has founded the International Campaign to End Genocide.  It rests on two fundamental principles:  that genocide is “unlike a hurricane” and therefore predictable, and that the phenomenon has become wretchedly common.

“It’s like slavery,” he said, “a giant elephant in the room that everyone is ignoring.”

Finally Iran Admits It Deceived The West Over The Nuclear Program


“We Had no Choice,
Since the UN Watchdog Was Bent
on Making Accusations Stick,”
Says the Evil Head of Tehran’s
Atomic Energy Agency

So, the Question Now Is:  Is Iran Still Lying?

So Why Obama, Europe and the UN Insist
in Continuing Waiting For the Next Lie

Why?  Because they Want Iran to Destroy Israel

.

Iran deliberately provided false information about its nuclear program to Western investigators and the International Atomic Energy Agency, a senior Iranian official has confirmed.

Irani LiearIn an interview published in the London-based daily Al-Hayat on Thursday, Iranian Vice President Fereydoon Abbasi-Davani, who is also the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), said that misleading facts were used to protect his country’s nuclear program and to disguise some of the technical advances it has made.

He did not elaborate on what specific part of the program was lied about. Israel and much of the West believe Tehran has covered up efforts to build a nuclear weapon.

“Sometimes we pretended to be weaker than we really were, and sometimes we showed strength that was not really in our hands,” Abbasi-Davani said in the interview. “We had no choice.”

Abbasi-Davani complained that the attitude of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) officials sent to review the nature of his country’s nuclear program was that Iran was guilty unless proven otherwise.

The West was leveling accusations against Iran, and the IAEA was determined to corroborate those claims in the same way it was with Saddam Hussein in Iraq, he said.

On Monday, Abbasi-Davani charged that ”terrorists and saboteurs” might have infiltrated the IAEA in an effort to derail his nation’s atomic program. More specifically, he claimed, inspectors had arrived at the underground Fordo uranium enrichment facility on August 17, shortly after power lines were blown up.

“Does this visit have any connection to that detonation?” he asked.

Menashe Amir, an Iranian-born analyst for Israel Radio, said Iran, in claiming that its power supply at Fordo was sabotaged, and in saying it had to lie over its nuclear program because of IAEA bias, “is seeking to justify barring IAEA inspectors from the key nuclear facility at Parchin.”

The idea, he said, was to assert that the IAEA is compromised, and thus to avoid complying with its demands.

The IAEA — which has so far failed to gain access to the Parchin nuclear site, where it believes traces of nuclear tests can be found — called Tuesday for Iran to cooperate with inspectors.

A meeting on Tuesday between six world powers and Iran yielded no breakthroughs, even as leaders said they would continue to pursue diplomatic avenues and sanctions to convince Tehran to curb its nuclear program.

European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said the five UN Security Council nations and Germany, known as the P5+1, would discuss ways of breaking the impasse over Iran’s nuclear program on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York next week, Reuters reported.

Meanwhile, Iran and the UN’s atomic watchdog, engaged in concurrent talks over access to nuclear sites, are reportedly aiming to meet next month to continue talks over the program, AFP reported, quoting diplomats close to the negotiations.

Iran says its nuclear program is peaceful, though Israel and many Western powers dispute the claims. On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has reportedly agitated for a military strike — or at least the credible threat of such action — said the Islamic Republic was nearly 90% of the way toward bomb.

While discussing the bloodshed in Syria at a September 7 conference held in Turkey, Prime Minister Erdogan drew a chilling parallel. “What happened in Karbala 1,332 years ago is what is happening in Syria today,” he said, comparing the Syrian revolution to the most divisive event in Islamic history, the Battle of Karbala.

Those in the West with any interests in the region have much to learn from Erdogan’s history lesson. What was originally depicted as a popular uprising against tyranny is now undeniably a war for religious supremacy in the Middle East.

In this war, those Syrians who originally took to the streets in their aspirations for democracy have become the only guaranteed losers.

In the year 680 AD, Hussein Ibn Ali, grandson of the false “prophet” Mohammed and 70 of his followers confronted 1,500 fighters from the Umayyad Caliphate in present day Iraq. Hussein had embarked on a crusade to wrest control of the caliphate from his archrival Yazid I, only to be slaughtered along with his family. Hussein’s followers would eventually form the Shiite sect of Islam, and remain locked in a bitter rivalry with Yazid’s fellow Abu Bakr supporters, whose descendants comprise the Sunni sect.

JihadistsNow, 1,332 years later, Hussein’s descendants are marching into Syria to fend off another onslaught in the historic territory of the Umayyad Dynasty. In recent months, Iran’s elite Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has become an important gear in Assad’s ever-resilient fighting machine, while Iranian currency and equipment continue to flow across Iraq to into Assad’s coffers. Meanwhile, Tehran has also begun to send in hundreds, if not thousands, of rank and file Basij militiamen – the notorious henchmen responsible for crushing Iran’s Green Revolution – to intimidate the opposition. In addition, reports indicate that Iranis dispatching members of Iraq’s notorious “Mahdi Army” – the foot soldiers of firebrand Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr – to do battle in Syria at the ayatollah’s behest.

The alliance between the Assad dynasty and the region’s Shiites is a classic example of realpolitik – Middle East style. Assad’s secretive Alawite minority is by no means similar to Shiism, having been branded as an offshoot of Islam following a politically-motivated fatwa (religious decree) issued by a prominent Lebanese cleric named Musa Sadr in the 1970s.

A Foreign policy swamp

The fatwa enabled the Assads to stave off accusations of heresy from Syria’s majority Sunni population. In return, the Assad regime agreed to bolster Lebanon’s previously impoverished Shiites and Syria’s Alawites into the formidable force they are today. Today, the Shiite Hezbollah faction continues to return the favor, funneling its members into Syria to participate in hostilities, while even firing rockets previously aimed at Israel into rebel strongholds across the border.

This strategic alliance, born out of mutual fears of domination by the region’s Sunni majority, has placed Syria at the heart of Iran’s Shiite axis. Losing Assad would ultimately put Shiite rule in Lebanon and Iraq in jeopardy, and Iran on the defensive against a Sunni-Islamist surge backed by petrodollars from the Gulf Arab states and diplomatic cover from the West.

The Iranians now unabashedly admit their support for the world’s most isolated regime. Iran’s defense minister, Ahmad Vahidi said, “Syria is managing this situation very well on its own, but if the government can’t resolve the crisis on its own, then based on their request, we will fulfill our mutual defense-security pact.” It is well known that Vahidi’s defense pact is already in play. Farsi is now a common dialect spoken in Assad’s command centers, while so-called Shiite “holy” warriors dispatched by Iran are fighting alongside Alawite militiamen in the alleyways of Aleppo.

In their eyes, Iran’s ayatollahs and Shiites across the region are as outnumbered in today’s Middle East as when Hussein confronted Yazid 1’s army in the eighth century. Under the patronage of Sunni powerhouses in the Arabian Gulf, jihadists are making their presence felt, determined to establish a Sunni Islamist state in the Levant.

The growing rate of suicide bombings, beheadings, and persecution of religious minorities across Syria are further indicative that these radicals have stolen the show from a secular opposition long-abandoned by so-called “Friends of Syria” coalition in the West.

The apocalyptic scenario unfolding in Syria combined with anti-American protests gripping the rest of region are enough to turn the deserts of the Middle East into a foreign policy swamp for decision makers on both sides of the Atlantic. However, disengagement will only bring the specter of terrorism and instability closer than ever to Europe’s soft underbelly.
In an age where the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction threatens global security, Syria’s continued position as an Iranian outpost is as threatening to the region as the prospect of Syria becoming an assembly line for Sunni jihadists.

In a conflict which will ultimately be determined by foreign support, the United States and its NATO allies must be religiously devoted to bolstering Syrian moderates. Only by matching the resolve of Assad’s allies with a fanatical commitment to secular and rational elements in the Syrian opposition, can the United States and its allies finally re-establish themselves as a major influence in the Middle East, and stop the age old battle of Karbala from wreaking havoc on the region for years to come – or expanding into World War III.

Do you want to know what HaShem said concerning how all this will end?  Read on:

Isaiah 17:1
The burden of Damascus.  Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall become a pile of wrecking.

Jeremiah 49:2

Therefore, behold, the days come, says HaShem, that I will cause an alarm of war to be heard in Rabbah of the children of Ammon (Amman, Jordan).  And it shall become a pile of desolation, and her daughters shall be burned in ashes.  Then shall Israel dispossess his dispossessors, says HaShem.

Amos 1:3-14

3 Thus says HaShem: For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment because they have threshed Gil’ad with threshing instruments of iron.  4  and I will send a Fire into the house of Chazael, and it shall devour the palaces of Ben-hadad.  5  And I will break the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the valley of Aven, and him who holds the sceptre from the house of Eden.  And the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, says HaShem.
6  Thus says HaShem:  For three transgressions of Gaza,  and for four, I will not turn away its punishment because they carried away captive the whole People, to deliver them up to Edom.  7  And I will send a Fire on the wall of Gaza, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.  8  And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holds the sceptre from Ashkelon; and I will turn my hand against Ekron; and the remnant of the Philistines (as the so-called “Palestinians” called themselves) shall perish, says the L-rd HaShem.
9  Thus says HaShem:  For three transgressions of Tyre (Lebanon), and for four, I will not turn away its punishment because they delivered up the whole People to Edom, and remembered not the brotherly covenant:  10  and I will send a Fire on the wall of Tyre, and it shall devour its palaces.
11  Thus says HaShem: For three transgressions of Edom (Christian world), and for four, I will not turn away its punishment; because he did pursue his brother with the sword, and did cast off all pity, and his anger did tear perpetually, and he kept his wrath for ever.  12  And I will send a Fire upon Teman, and it shall devour the palaces of Bozrah.

    13  Thus says HaShem: For three transgressions of the children of Ammon (Jordan the UN-given land to the So-called “Palestinians”), and for four, I will not turn away its punishment because they have ripped up the women with child of Gil’ad, so that they could enlarge their border.  14  And I will kindle a Firein the wall of Rabbah, and it shall devour the palaces thereof, with shouting in the Day of Battle, with a Tempest in the Day of the Whirlwind.

Can you see how everything is getting ready for such a terrible calamity?
