A group of Americans, who observed the Syrian presidential election first hand, reported at the United Nations on what they witnessed.~ As a group, they described the election in Syria as successful, free and transparent.~ They also called for an end to foreign support for anti-Damascus mercenary terrorist.

June 19, 2014 at 11am:
the Syrian Mission to the United Nations convened a press conference featuring people from the US who observed the recent elections.

Five minutes into the opening comments of Syrian Ambassador Bashar Al-Jaafari, the UN webcast cut off. The thousands of journalists, political analysts, and others who view UN webcasts each day from all over the world were denied the ability to watch the press conference, and hear what was said.

This is not the first time this has happened when Bashar Jaafari is speaking. This occurred on June 7th earlier this year, and on numerous occasions throughout…

ISIS Fiasco: It’s Really an Attack on Iran

For Once, Not a CIA Plot?

There’s something that doesn’t ring-true about the coverage of crisis in Iraq. Maybe it’s the way the media reiterates the same, tedious storyline over and over again with only the slightest changes in the narrative. For example, I was reading an article in the Financial Times by Council on Foreign Relations president, Richard Haass, where he says that Maliki’s military forces in Mosul “melted away”.

Interestingly, the Haass op-ed was followed by a piece by David Gardener who used almost the very same language. He said the “army melts away.” So, I decided to thumb through the news a bit and see how many other journalists were stung by the “melted away” bug. And, as it happens, there were quite a few, including Politico, NBC News, News Sentinel, Global Post, the National Interest, ABC News etc.

Now, the only way an unusual expression like…

Bashar al-Jaafari rejects the nomination of an Israeli at the UN Special Commitee on Decolonization

Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari, stressed Syria’s strong rejection of nominating an Israeli person for vice-chair of the Special Political and Decolonization Committee by the Group of Western European and Other States.

In a statement during the Committee’s meeting, al-Jaafari said that Israeli is unqualified to hold a senior position in a committee that basically rejects the Israeli occupation of the Arab territories and condemns its arbitrary practices against the Arab population under the Israeli occupation.

Al-Jaafari pointed out that the vote’s outcome proved that Israel was “unqualified” to hold the post, thanking the countries which voted against this nomination.

The Israeli candidate received 74 votes out of 193 as 34 delegation were absent and 83 delegations expressed their rejection of this nomination through handing white papers or papers written on them “Palestine” making the result of the vote in favor of the Israeli candidate equal…

Pushkov: US too late to acknowledge extremist groups in Syria are terrorists

20140618-214408_h551011Moscow, (SANA) Chairman of the Russian Duma Committee on International Affairs, Alexei Pushkov, blamed the United States of America for spreading terrorism in the Middle East, stressing that the recent events in Iraq are evidence of the US policy’s absolute failure in the Middle East.

At a press conference held in Moscow, Pushkov pointed out that the Russian officials have warned their western partners during the past three years of the risks of these extremist organizations in Syria on peace and security in the region and the world at large.

He added that the US acknowledged lately that the extremist organizations in Syria are terrorists, but it was too late that these organizations formed their structure and gained strength, so the US has to shoulder full responsibility for its Middle East policy.

“After almost 6 years since US President Barack Obama took office, the results of the US policy have remained catastrophic, and the promises that Obama made in Cairo during his first visit to the Middle East have not been fulfilled,” Pushkov added.

In an interview with SANA correspondent in Moscow, Pushkov pointed out that what is happening in Syria is similar to what is happening in Ukraine as the two countries were the victim of great pressures by the US which is trying to impose its policy in changing regimes.

Pushkov added that the difference in the two countries is that the US managed to achieve its goal in Ukraine in spite of the rejection of the sweeping majority of the Ukrainian population which oppose the current regime.

Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal has called for the international community’s urgent intervention in Syria to end the suffering of the rising number of Syrians who are either internally displaced or have taken refuge outside the border.

Personally, I think the international community should attack Saudi based on the accusations he spews against Syria. Youtube is littered with torture of women, Ethiopians, maids, garbage collectors, animals etc by Saudis. You name it, Saudi tortures it. Its enough the international community should be sick to death over. But you dont hear any condemnation from the international community as Saudi has that almighty petro dollar to buy silence from these communities. Its easy to turn…

At once I became War, and my fearful Name everywhere became the sign of Majesty.

I appeared as the sublime instrument of Providential blood-letting and, in my wonderful unawareness as the Elect of Fate, I espoused through the centuries every human feeling capable of speeding Fate on.

Anger, Love, Enthusiasm, Greed, Fanaticism and Insanity I served in so perfect a fashion that the history books have been afraid to tell the whole story.

During six thousand years I have made myself drunk, at all points of the globe, on massacre and throat-slitting.

Sheikh Qassem added that who thinks that he can attain his goals through supporting ISIL crimes is misled, condemning the silence of some of the Arab countries in the face of the massacres which have been committed by ISIL terrorists.

Why There Won’t Be Military Cooperation Between Iran and the US on Iraq

Originally posted on Libya 360°:

By Amal Saad

Watching mainstream media get into a tizzy about the prospect of “groundbreaking military cooperation” between Iran and the US, is quite pathetic. Aside from US official statements, the basis of this misplaced enthusiasm is the much trumpeted Rouhani press conference where he declared that “If we see that the United States takes action against terrorist groups in Iraq, then one can think about it [cooperation]”. What is omitted in most news reports is the specific context in which the Iranian President made this statement.

According to the Telegraph’s translation, Rouhani was asked if Iran was prepared to cooperate with America in Iraq. He replied that

All countries need to embark on joint effort regarding terrorism. At the moment, it’s the government of Iraq and the people of Iraq that are fighting terrorism. We have not seen the US do anything for now. Any time the…

ISIS in Iraq and Syria: Shame on Obama while Hezbollah Helps the Mosaic

By Murad Makhmudov and Lee Jay Walker ~ Modern Tokyo Times ~

President Obama and other leaders in France, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the United Kingdom, should all be held accountable for the re-destabilization of Iraq alongside the destabilization of Libya and Syria. Indeed, the shock waves can be felt in Egypt, Lebanon, Mali, Tunisia, and much further afield. Therefore, leading Gulf and Western powers alongside Turkey have unleashed forces that behead, slaughter minorities, do daily terrorist attacks, destroy cultural monuments and a host of other barbaric realities.

The former leader of America, George Bush junior, began the destabilization of Iraq based on false and untruthful statements. After years of finally appearing to stabilize the situation – despite terrorism being a reality in Iraq – then Obama left the doors wide open while supporting mayhem and chaos in Libya and Syria. This folly is now leading to a major…

‘White phosphorus’ reports: Ukraine military ‘dropped incendiary bombs’ on Slavyansk

photo_verybig_6064Residents of Slavyansk and its suburbs were awoken overnight on Thursday by what they say were incendiary bombs that were dropped on their city by Kiev’s military. Witnesses and local media reports suggested that the bombs might be phosphorous.

Much of the village of Semyonovka, located in the Slavyansk suburbs, was set ablaze. Local residents told RT that the ground didn’t stop burning for some time.

“We all saw what happened here yesterday. They used rocket launchers as well as incendiary bombs against us. The ground was on fire. How can the ground burn by itself. It burned for about forty minutes,”resident Roman Litvinov told RT over the phone.

“Starting from 2 a.m. everyone I’ve met has a sore throat and is coughing all the time. I think this is because of the burning. I think we’ll feel the true consequences later. There are still a lot of people here, a lot of children we haven’t managed to get out yet,” resident Tatyana told RT.

The use of incendiary bombs – designed to start fires using materials such as napalm, white phosphorus or other dangerous chemicals – is strictly prohibited by the UN.

 

Kiev authorities have denied reports that such weapons were used against civilians. The National Guard also refuted reports that phosphorous ammunition was used, its press service stated.

During the latest news briefing, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki veered away from answering an AP journalist’s question about the reported use of white phosphorus bombs by Kiev’s army. But when cornered, she let it slip that she was quite clueless as to the situation on the ground – saying she thought the reference was to the Russians using the bombs.

When asked about the report for the second time, Psaki replied: “By whom? By Russians?”

The journalist replied: “No, by the Ukrainians,” specifying that there is video and photographic evidence of the attack.

Psaki replied by saying, “No, I didn’t see those reports.”

Slavyansk, an industrial city in southeastern Ukraine with a population of over 100,000 people, has been a focal point of the government’s crackdown against the region. The city’s residential area has been under regular artillery fire for weeks.

“It does appear that there is at least a case to be argued that something similar, if not itself white phosphorous, was used overnight. I’ve seen the video, I’ve looked at it closely…[there are] whole signs, whole marks of white phosphorous use. For example, a very bright light burning and multiple burns coming down from the sky. It’s an airburst weapon that has been used, such as a mortar or a manned aircraft,”Charles Shoebridge, a former army officer, Scotland Yard detective, and counter-terrorism intelligence officer who has recently returned from Ukraine, told RT.

“White phosphorous cannot be put out with the use of water” and it will “burn through one’s body to the bone,” Shoebridge added. “If there is going to be large amounts used it can also be a poison – large amounts can be set to contaminate water supply.”

According to the video, “it’s very likely that white phosphorus” was used, Shoebridge added. “It’s very difficult to fabricate the video we saw combined with the evidence on the ground.”

Moscow demanded an immediate investigation into the reported use of incendiary bombs in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday.

“We are concerned to hear reports that the Ukrainian military forces use incendiary bombs and some other indiscriminate weapons,” he said. “These reports should be probed into immediately.”

On Thursday, Russia introduced a draft resolution to the UN Security Council that condemns attacks on residential quarters and civilian facilities in southeastern Ukraine, said Vitaly Churkin, Russian envoy to the UN.

He also voiced concern over reports of the use of prohibited ammunition, including incendiary bombs, during the military crackdown.

The draft resolution calls for an immediate end to all violence and for a lasting ceasefire.

“The draft resolution will aim to stop the violence and support the political efforts the OSCE has been undertaking in vain so far. We urge the UN Secretary-General to support them,” Churkin said, adding that its adoption would demonstrate the UNSC’s support for the crisis settlement efforts.

US, NATO not after solution in Ukraine: Analyst

Press TV has interviewed Rick Rozoff from Stop NATO Network, Chicago, to get his views on NATO activities with regards to the current situation in Ukraine.

What follows is an approximate transcription of that interview:

Press TV: First of all, how should Russia respond to NATO’s provocative war game maneuvers?

Rozoff: Russia should have diplomatically and otherwise put a stop to NATO expansion at least a decade ago. That is, in 2004 the US-controlled military bloc absorbed seven new nations at one time; all of them in Eastern Europe, including the three former Soviet Baltic republics: Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. And immediately afterwards, on US instigation, regular air patrols were started by NATO out of Lithuania, which have been occurring for over a decade now. A comparable air base has been upgraded by the US and…

A conspiracy is underway to exclude Syria from UN consultations and circumvent the veto of Russia and China

Rumors in the Glass Palace (UN) speak of “hysteria at the peak” among the delegates of Saudi and Qatar who along with the U.S., France and Turkey, would like to pass a resolution at the General Assembly to ban Syrian representative from UN and UNSC meetings, bypassing the veto of Russia and China.

The British have immediately pointed out that it is impossible to suspend the membership of a country from UN, therefore they will point to an agenda to “ban” the Permanent Representative of Syria, Dr. Bashar al Jaafari (also known as “the lion of diplomacy”) to participate at all the U.N. meetings related to Syria and making sure that this prohibition should also be extended to the U.N.
