EU regime funds deceptive propaganda to fool you  

The sole credible reason for the EU's bureaucracy overburden, the European Commission, to exist was its avoidance of war. That went out of the window with Yugoslavia, Libya and NATO when bilderberg overruled any shred of decency in the muck pile.

“Pro-Democracy Terrorism”: The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is a Propaganda Front funded by the EU
The NYT admits fraudulent Syrian human rights group is UK-based “one-man band” funded by EU and one other “European country.”

In reality, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has long ago been exposed as an absurd propaganda front operated by Rami Abdul Rahman out of his house in England’s countryside. According to a December 2011 Reuters article titled, “Coventry – an unlikely home to prominent Syria activist,” Abdul Rahman admits he is a member of the so-called “Syrian opposition” and seeks the ouster of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad:
After three short spells in prison in Syria for pro-democracy activism, Abdulrahman came to Britain in 2000 fearing a longer, fourth jail term.
“I came to Britain the day Hafez al-Assad died, and I’ll return when Bashar al-Assad goes,” Abdulrahman said, referring to Bashar’s father and predecessor Hafez, also an autocrat.

One could not fathom a more unreliable, compromised, biased source of information, yet for the past two years, his “Observatory” has served as the sole source of information for the endless torrent of propaganda emanating from the Western media. Perhaps worst of all, is that the United Nations uses this compromised, absurdly overt source of propaganda as the basis for its various reports – at least, that is what the New York Times now claims in their recent article, “A Very Busy Man Behind the Syrian Civil War’s Casualty Count.”
The NYT piece admits:
Military analysts in Washington follow its body counts of Syrian and rebel soldiers to gauge the course of the war. The United Nations and human rights organizations scour its descriptions of civilian killings for evidence in possible war crimes trials. Major news organizations, including this one, cite its casualty figures.
Yet, despite its central role in the savage civil war, the grandly named Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is virtually a one-man band. Its founder, Rami Abdul Rahman, 42, who fled Syria 13 years ago, operates out of a semidetached red-brick house on an ordinary residential street in this drab industrial city [Coventry, England].
The New York Times also for the first time reveals that Abdul Rahman’s operation is indeed funded by the European Union and a “European country” he refuses to identify:
Money from two dress shops covers his minimal needs for reporting on the conflict, along with small subsidies from the European Union and one European country that he declines to identify.
[Photo: “Rami Abdelrahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (Reuters)
Abdelrahman leaves the Foreign and Commonwealth Office after meeting Britain’s Foreign Secretary, William Hague, in central London November 21, 2011.]
Abdelrahman is not the “head” of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, he is the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, run out of his UK-based house as a one-man operation.
And while Abdul Rahman refuses to identify that “European country,” it is beyond doubt that it is the United Kingdom itself – as Abdul Rahman has direct access to the Foreign Secretary William Hague, who he has been documented meeting in person on multiple occasions at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London. The NYT in fact reveals that it was the British government that first relocated Abdul Rahman to Coventry, England after he fled Syria over a decade ago because of his anti-government activities:
When two associates were arrested in 2000, he fled the country, paying a human trafficker to smuggle him into England. The government resettled him in Coventry, where he decided he liked the slow pace.
Abdul Rahman is not a “human rights activist.” He is a paid propagandist. He is no different than the troupe of unsavory, willful liars and traitors provided refuge in Washington and London during the Iraq war and the West’s more recent debauchery in Libya, for the sole purpose of supplying Western governments with a constant din of propaganda and intentionally falsified intelligence reports designed specifically to justify the West’s hegemonic designs.
Abdul Rahman’s contemporaries include the notorious Iraqi defector Rafid al-Janabi, codename “Curveball,” who now gloats publicly that he invented accusations of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, the West’s casus belli for a 10 year war that ultimately cost over a million lives, including thousands of Western troops, and has left Iraq still to this day in shambles. There’s also the lesser known Dr. Sliman Bouchuiguir of Libya, who formed the foundation of the pro-West human rights racket in Benghazi and now openly brags in retrospect that tales of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi’s atrocities against the Libyan people were likewise invented to give NATO its sought-after impetus to intervene militarily.
Unlike in Iraq and Libya, the West has failed categorically to sell military intervention in Syria, and even its covert war has begun to unravel as the public becomes increasingly aware that the so-called “pro-democracy rebels” the West has been arming for years are in fact sectarian extremists fighting under the banner of Al Qaeda. The charade that is the “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights” is also unraveling. It is unlikely that the New York Times’ limited hangout will convince readers that Rami Abdul Rahman is anything other than another “Curveball” helping the corporate-financier elite of Wall Street and London sell another unnecessary war to the public.

Most people know that the mainstream media, many groups like CFR, Chatham Hse, CoR, CoM, CoB, etc and (Soros funded) ICC serves bilderberg interests but that various charities can be compared to the Abdul Rahman SOHR propaganda outlet may be news to some. The afflicted chrities include the Red Cross that helped ship weapons from France to illegal insurgents in Libya, happily sets up "refugee camps" near conflict zones where terrorists are trained and intelligence and special services make their bases. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, seemingly for (individual and company) profit orgs happily conceal, downplay and lie when information conflicts with the message desired by bilderberg. Soros' name appears again in the funding envelope. This was blatant in Libya and is now obvious in Syria. The UN has its strings pulled by Soros' CFR and the CoR.

The Hijacking of Human Rights By Chris Hedges
The appointment of Suzanne Nossel, a former State Department official and longtime government apparatchik, as executive director of PEN American Center is part of a campaign to turn U.S. human rights organizations into propagandists for pre-emptive war and apologists for empire. Nossel’s appointment led me to resign from PEN as well as withdraw from speaking at the PEN World Voices Festival in May. But Nossel is only symptomatic of the widespread hijacking of human rights organizations to demonize those—especially Muslims—branded by the state as the enemy, in order to cloak pre-emptive war and empire with a fictional virtue and to effectively divert attention from our own mounting human rights abuses, including torture, warrantless wiretapping and monitoring, the denial of due process and extrajudicial assassinations.
Nossel, who was deputy assistant secretary of state for international organization affairs under Hillary Clinton in a State Department that was little more than a subsidiary of the Pentagon, is part of the new wave of “humanitarian interventionists,” such as Samantha Power, Michael Ignatieff and Susan Rice, who naively see in the U.S. military a vehicle to create a better world.

pro-Assad cleric Mohammad al-Bouti
"The evidence against Assad goes as far as suggesting that he staged a massacre for political gain. On March 21 international news agencies reported that a “large explosion killed at least 42 people inside a central Damascus mosque.” The regime said that the blast, which killed pro-Assad cleric Mohammad al-Bouti, was the work of a suicide bomber.

But this week a video of that attack surfaced showing small explosion in front of Bouti (who died in the aftermath), which has Syrian journalists such as Hassan Hassan wondering:

How were the 40-plus people killed? The bomb could not have killed the other people, as even the people sitting less than a meter away from him were hardly affected. Why, then, has the regime insisted it was a suicide bombing that killed the cleric? … Activists have alleged that many of those who died were shot at a point-blank range.

The evidence is piling up in the form of civilians corpses. Notwithstanding heinous acts committed by extremist rebels, it’s becoming harder to give Assad the benefit of the doubt."

The US is not pro democracy
U.S. Steps up War on Syria: CIA is the Anchor of a Coordinated Secret Operation
While pretending to be cautious about its intervention in Syria, the Obama administration has conducted a massive clandestine operation over the past two years to pump guns, heavy military equipment and money to fuel the civil war that is destroying Syria.
The CIA is the anchor of this highly coordinated secret operation.
Under the CIA’s supervision, more than 160 military cargo flights have delivered weapons to anti-government armed units in Syria. (The New York Times, March 25)
One of the ridiculous fictions about the war against Syria is that the Obama administration publicly claims “caution” in arming the rebels, in contrast to Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which have openly acknowledged their role in fueling the civil war by sending arms and money to the enemies of the Assad government.
Saudi Arabia and Qatar are both absolute and hereditary monarchies whose existence is completely dependent on their role as clients of the United States. So too is the royal family in Jordan, which allows its territory to be a transfer pivot for the massive arms shipments into Syria.
Qatar, with its citizen population of only 250,000 people, does not derive its fighting posture toward Syria from a robust military capability. That is a joke. Rather, Qatar is the location of the Pentagon’s Central Command Forward Headquarters and its Combined Air Operation Center. Qatar is also home to Al Jazeera, which promotes the cause of the armed rebellion against the Assad government.
Qatar is not directing anything except that which the Pentagon approves.
The equally hideous Saudi royal family remains on the throne only because of its close ties to the Pentagon and CIA.
The Saudi monarchy is protected by U.S. imperialism because it is part of an undeclared but real U.S. sphere of influence, and it is the largest producer of oil in the world. The U.S. attitude toward the Saudi monarchy was put succinctly by Ronald Reagan in 1981, when he said that the U.S. government “will not permit” a revolution in Saudi Arabia such as the 1979 Iranian revolution, which removed the U.S. client regime of the Shah. Reagan’s message was clear: The Pentagon and CIA’s military forces would be used decisively to destroy any democratic movement against the rule of the Saudi royal family.

The “Liberal Left” Promotes the CIA’s Covert War on Syria
The “liberal left” has reacted to the publication of detailed reports on the CIA’s role in backing Islamist forces in the US proxy war in Syria by intensifying their support for the war. Forces like the International Socialist Organization (ISO) in the United States and the New Anti-capitalist Party (NPA) in France are functioning as conscious propagandists for a neo-colonial CIA operation.
The ISO’s April 9 article by Yusef Khalil, “Why the Left must support Syria’s Revolution”—which cites Gayath Naïssé, one of the NPA’s main writers on Syria—begins by slandering opponents of the CIA war in Syria as supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Khalil begins, “’Airlift to Rebels in Syria Expands with CIA’s Help,’ screamed a New York Times headline in late March. ‘Foreign intervention!,’ screamed back supporters of the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.” He continues, “Some on the US and international left continue to cling to the idea that the regime presiding over this violence and repression is progressive—and that the uprising against it was engineered by Western governments.”
Khalil’s statement, which mocks the idea that Western imperialism is behind the Syrian war, stands in blatant contradiction to the widely-acknowledged fact that the CIA and its regional allies are arming the opposition to destabilize Syria and topple Assad. The implication that all opposition to the US war comes from “supporters of the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad” is a slander and a political lie. It is aimed at blocking a struggle to mobilize the working class in struggle against both the Assad regime and, above all, the intervention in Syria of the most ruthless sections of American imperialism.
By ruling out such a struggle, Khalil is supporting a bloody CIA operation and, behind it, the Middle East policy of US imperialism, whose war in Syria has had devastating consequences for the Syrian people.
Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, and Turkey helped purchase and transport a “cataract of weaponry” coordinated by the CIA into Syria, in the words of one US official cited in the Times ’ March article, which is friendly to the Syrian opposition. The paper “conservatively” estimates the quantity of munitions sent to Syria at 3,500 tons. In the ensuing fighting, some 70,000 Syrians have died, and nearly 5 million have been forced to flee their homes.
US foreign policy experts have stated that Washington’s shock troops are the Al Qaeda-linked Al Nusra Front, which still receives support apparently unhindered by the CIA—even though Washington declared Al Nusra a terrorist organization last December. (See also: Washington’s proxy in Syria: Al Qaeda )
The ISO statement makes clear that it supports the anti-Assad militias’ decision to take weapons from the CIA. Khalil writes, “The vital question facing the Syrian opposition is how to get aid from sources that can provide what the revolution needs, which is weapons, while maintaining independent Syrian decision-making. This is a tough question to answer, but not impossible.”
Khalil’s claim that one can maintain “independent Syrian decision-making” while taking arms from the CIA is an absurd fiction, concocted to disguise the fact that the ISO is supporting a war coordinated and organized by Washington.

Re: The “Liberal Left” Promotes the CIA’s Covert War on Syria
The political revolution is not so much about kalashnikovs and passionate rhetoric. A democratic revolution should be seen as a new stage of humanity's development, primarily a new way of thinking and innovation in a system of social relations and governance. If it fails to do that then it is merely yet another ‘palace coup’ bringing grist to someone else's mill. Replacing leaders doesn't alters the system allowing arbitrariness. And the political systems and forms of government based on the principle of "the one is the winner, the rest are the losers" are unjust from the start and will never be able to bring freedom, peace and stable equilibrium to a society.

A multipolar political system as a real Democratic Revolution. The President isn't present more.

The Arab Spring Reaches Israel
The 40-year lull at Golan Heights is unraveling
So the Arab spring rebels finally reached the Syrian-Israeli "border" and the first stray Al Qaeda bullets begin rattling the nerves of those stationed across the Golan Heights – and across the Atlantic. It was natural that most of the 20,000 regular troops stationed at the Golan Heights were relocated as fighting intensified near Damascus. In fact, had Bashar’s inner core been a tad smarter, the withdrawal would have been sounded much earlier, making way for Jabhat al-Nusra – the local Al Qaeda affiliate – and impressing upon Israelis, and their American friends, the real danger of playing Afghanistan Part-3 in Syria, using the Saudi jihadi card to unseat leaders unpopular in Washington.
It is interesting that this development was followed by the announced merger between Iraqi and Syrian Al Qaeda outfits, and reports that Jabhat al-Nusra’s imposition of Shari’a law in parts of Aleppo and Racca has led to serious differences within the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA), the face of the opposition that Americans and Turks wish to portray to the world. In reality, though, the FSA’s influence has waned considerably in comparison to Jabhat al-Nusra over the last year. And since theirs is an expansionist agenda, not confined to Syria’s borders, it is finally dawning on some players that Baath’s brutes weren’t nearly as bad as the petrodollar mullahs that Wahabi monarchies have funneled into the country in the wake of the Arab Spring.
The 40-year lull at the Golan Heights, achieved after painstaking deliberations between the Americans, Soviets, Israelis and Bashar’s father Hafez following the 1973 Yom Kippur war, has started to unravel. UNDOF, the United Nations observer force on the Golan Heights is disintegrating – some members have withdrawn their contingents, others are entertaining similar thoughts – and the Israeli military is fortifying the border.
“We’re seeing terror organisations gaining footholds increasingly in the territory,” Israeli military chief Lt Gen Benny Gantz said last week, the first admission that Tel Aviv’s concerns are shifting. Till now it was happy helping tighten the noose around Damascus, but a fresh fear is now emerging. “For now they are fighting Assad. Guess what? We are next in line,” Gen Gantz added.
Yet there seems little appreciation of these dangers where it matters. John Kerry’s whirlwind tours to the region invariably reinforce the Saudi-Qatari-Turkish position of strengthening the rebels, providing them with training, arms, and Syria’s seat at the Arab League. Sure, there’s the occasional chatter about ensuring arms smuggled into Syria don’t fall into the Jabhat’s hands, yet there is never any mention of who might be arming these radicals so successfully, or what mechanism could possibly ensure supplies don’t end in their warehouses.

That would be the Israeli occupied Syrian Golan. The terrorists mentioned are the AQ affiliated, now franchised al Nusra front funded by Saudi. Syria, formerly the gateway to Iran for the NWO imperialists and Israel, now the gateway to Israel for bilderberg regimes and Saudi backed terrorists.

Integrity's Demise; The Israeli March To Shiflut
Interesting satire
[...] On that Moral-Historical catalog, Israel place is as the epitome and breeder of Shiflut – namely, national life saturated with phenomenally flexible and, at the same time, utterly replaceable ethical spine. At its less threatening mode the Israeli public field (from Left to Right through the Center) is a sizzling incubator of nation-wide varied modes of opportunism; at its worst, the Israeli spirit is national victimhood gone berserk -- on the global arena.
In parallel, The Israeli relations with the truth are like those of a businesslike pimp to his prize prostitute: he sings her praise, makes the most of her as long as it is profitable and guards her so that no one else will have his way with her without pay. But whenever the cost of truth weighs more than pimping it, then, without hesitation, the designated Israeli leader throws truth to the gutter while wailing how much it did cost him to keep with it at all.

The Jews were guilty SAMI?
Intro -
Polish nationalists defend historian who blamed Jews for Holocaust
JTA Jewish Telegraphic Agency
(JTA) — Leaders of a Polish nationalist movement said a historian’s claims that Jews helped perpetrate the Holocaust were “factual” and “necessary.”
The historian who made the claims, Krzysztof Jasiewicz, was “far from politically correct but his statements are supported by historical facts,” Robert Winnicki, president of the All-Polish Youth, said in a statement published Tuesday on the website of the ultranationalist organization, which has a few thousand registered members.
Artur Zawisza, a former lawmaker in the Polish parliament, is quoted as telling the news site NaTemat.pl that Jasiewicz “said too much common sense that has long been present in the literature.” He said the historian’s claims were a “necessary part of open debate.”
Jasiewicz, a professor at the Polish Academy of Sciences, made the claim in an interview that appeared this month in a Focus Historia edition focusing on the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.
“This nonsense about Jews being killed mostly by Poles was manufactured to conceal a big Jewish secret: That the scale of the German crime was made possible by the Jews themselves, who participated in the murder of their own people,” Jasiewicz wrote. He added that “dialogue with the Jews was pointless.”
Following indignant reactions by the Simon Wiesenthal Center and other groups, the board of the Polish Academy of Science said it would consider taking disciplinary steps against Jasiewicz. Winnicki called the protestations “by fringe groups outrageous and unacceptable.”
