Khamenei Tells the World How to Destroy Israel

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

The difference between Hitler and Khamenei is 80 years.

The Ayatollah of Iran has published a 416-page book entitled “Palestine” and whose book cover features the world “Palestine” on a map of the country he wishes used to be Israel.

Nothing is coincidental in the Iranian regime. The publication of the new book, bound to a best-seller in Iran, is part of a propaganda campaign to brainwash Iranians into thinking that the agreement with the P5+1 powers does not have anything to do with the regime’s ultimate dream of wiping out Israel.

Khamenei explains that is absolutely logical that Israel should not exist for three major reasons:

Israel is an ally of the “Great Satan” known as the United States of America;

Israel is a “hostile infidel” because it supposedly has waged war against Muslims’ and

Israel “occupies” Islam’s third holiest city, Jerusalem.

The New York Post reported that the back cover of the book credits Khamenei as “the flag bearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem.”

Israel is not the only country that should be erased, according to the book, which repeats the radical Islamic vision of a Caliphate Empire on all Muslim lands.

That means India also must be wiped off the map. Parts of Russia must be under Muslim rule. Several European countries should not exist as such, and China can kiss good-bye to nearly one-third of its land mass. Ditto for parts of the Philippines and Thailand.

Khamenei’s strategy for taking over Israel and all of the other “Muslim” counties is to create conditions that will convince everyone to leave for a abate life elsewhere.

That means Congress can relax and give its stamp of approval to ObamaDeal because Khamenei does not need a nuclear weapon to wipe out Israel.

Just lift sanctions and give him tens of billions of dollars to fund Hezbollah and Hamas, and perhaps the Boycott Movement.

The strategy actually is a statement of current events. The United Nations, and especially the European Union and the Obama administration, invent every opportunity to condemn Israel for promoting the presence of Jews in a Palestinian Authority country whose principle of “no-Jews allowed” violates the charter of the United Nations.

According to the New York Post’s report and translation from the Farsi-language book, Khamenei wrote:

We have intervened in anti-Israel matters, and it brought victory in the 33-day war by Hezbollah against Israel in 2006 and in the 22-day war between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip.

And once Iran has a nuclear weapon, if not next year then in 10 or 15 years, any Israeli pre-emptive action could be met by a nuclear attack. One way or the other, Khamenei wants the means to destroy Israel and much of the rest of the world.

His book once again exposes that Iran is no less a threat to Europe than to Israel, but Europe is so overrun by Muslims that its leaders don’t have the strength to see the future.

Instead, they focus on Israel, promoting the “two-state” solution while Khamenei writes in his book that there must be a “one-state solution of a single state of a Muslim Palestine.

Like Iran, it would allow Jews to remain, without a right to vote and only if they prove they have “genuine roots.” that means the a large majority of the Israelis, like myself, would have to get on the next plane and “go back” to the United States, Europe, Morocco, Yemen and the former Soviet bloc, among dozens of other countries.

US Worried China Will ID American Spies After Massive Cyber Hack

Saturday, July 25th, 2015

The headaches are not yet over from that massive cyber attack on the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

Washington is now worried that China can use the stolen information to identify the American spies that have been working there secretly throughout the past decade – or longer.

American officials maintain that the CIA and other intelligence agency records were kept separate, and thus were protected from the breach. Nevertheless, through a process of elimination and combining other data, they said Friday hackers can use “big data analytics” to track the identities, according to a report Saturday in The New York Times.

Although the Obama administrative has continued to be reluctant to name the Chinese government as being responsible for the hack, sources who spoke with the newspaper had no such problems.

Millions of records were stolen in the cyber heist over an 18-month period, and may were records of those who had Top Secret clearances. It’s not yet clear what the Chinese would – or could – do with all that data.

Chinese Companies Invest in Israel

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

A myriad Chinese firms are continuing their quest to invest in Israel, with major companies on the prowl to purchase anything for sale. As soon as a promising Israeli company appears on the block, well-heeled Chinese firms look it over. Several have already been snapped up.

Last month the Chinese government’s Bright Food Group officially signed an agreement with Israel’s Apax Partners to purchase a 56 percent stake in Tnuva Food Industries.

Mivtach-Shamir Food Industries Ltd., which owns 21 percent in the company, is still in talks to decide whether to sell to Bright Food. The kibbutz movement, which owns a 23 percent stake in Tnuva, has decided to stay out of the deal. Any side that pulls out before completion is required to pay NIS 140 million in compensation to the other party.

The dairy giant’s center of operations is to remain in Israel, according to the agreement, including its management, production and development, Globes reported. While a representative of Bright Food will serve as chairman of the Board of Directors, most of the board, as well as the CEO, management and most of the board itself is to remain Israeli as well.

“It is our intention to continue to keep Tnuva as an Israeli company,” Bright Food said in a statement, “and continue cooperating with all relevant local bodies including employees, farmers, and cattle farmers to faithfully serve the Israeli consumer.”  The deal is expected to reach completion within weeks.

Meanwhile, there are seven contenders for a major Israeli insurance company – and three of them are Chinese.

The sale of the controlling interest in the IDB Development insurance unit of Clal Insurance Enterprises Holdings Ltd. is set for mid-July. The sale requires submission of non-binding bids, which are to follow the signing of a confidentiality agreement. All seven contenders have already completed the latter requirement, which means the sale appears to be galloping along.

The firms from China include:

  • Chinese-European private equity fund XIO – which recently acquired the Israeli Lumenis Ltd. Firm;
  • Chinese insurance giant China Life; and
  • Chinese group JT Capital, headed by Li Haifeng, who has now combined forces with an unnamed Chinese insurance company.

A binding agreement was also signed yesterday (June 21) in the sale of the controlling interest in The Phoenix Holdings Ltd., owned by the Delek Group, Ltd.

That NIS 1.8 billion deal included a nine percent discount on the original value, agreed upon with Chinese investment company Fosun International Ltd.

No Ramadan Fasting Allowed for Muslims in Xinjiang, China

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

Residents of the majority- Muslim province of Xinjiang in China are not being allowed to celebrate their religious holiday this year.

The Chinese government posted statements banning the traditional month-long daily fasts on the websites of schools, government agencies and local party organizations.

“No teacher may participate in religious activities, instill religious thoughts in students, or coerce students into religious activities,” read a statement on the website of the No. 3 Grade School in Ruoqiang County in Xinjiang, according to the Virtual Jerusalem website.

“Students shall not participate in religious activities; they shall not study scripts or read poems at script and choir classes; they shall not wear any religious emblems; and no parent or others can force students to have religious beliefs or partake in religious activities,” another post on the website read.

Restaurants have been ordered to stay open in the province, including those owned and operated by Muslims, according to the Saudi Arabian Arab News website. Shops have been threatened with closure if they do not continue selling cigarettes and alcohol throughout the month of Ramadan.

According to the post, the ban is intended to “protect students’ well-being” and “prevent the use of schools and government offices from promoting religion.” But the ban may be adding fuel to a fire that is already beginning to blaze in the province against the Han ethnic majority in China, the largest such group in the country.

Dilxat Raxit, the Sweden-based leader of the Uighur people, however, warned in a statement last Friday, “The faith of the Uighurs has been highly politicized and the increase in controls could cause sharp resistance.” The second-largest ethnic group in China is comprised of the Uighurs, who largely identify with Islam. All told, there are some 56 recognized ethnic groups in the country.

“China’s goal in prohibiting religious fasting is to forcibly move Uighurs away from their Muslim culture during Ramadan,” said Raxit, a spokesperson for the exiled World Uighur Congress. “Policies that prohibit religious fasting are a provocation and will only lead to instability and conflict.”

The ruling party, which officially is atheist, is “encouraging” its members to avoid daytime fasting – a direct slap at the Islamic practice during Ramadan.

“They are extracting guarantees from parents, promising that their children won’t fast on Ramadan,” Raxit said in an interview with Radio Free Asia.

In December 2014, China prohibited the wearing of burkas – Islamic full-body, veiled robes – in public in Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang province, referred to by some as East Turkestan. Some eight million Turkish-speaking Uighur Muslims populate the northwestern Xinjiang region, which has been autonomous since 1955, but remains subject to security restrictions by Chinese authorities.

Last month violence in a Xinjiang open air vegetable market left 43 people dead. A year ago 13 radical Islamic terrorists were killed in a clash with police. Attacks at train stations in Urumqi and in southwestern China were also blamed on Muslim extremists.

The most populous nation in the world, China is also the third largest country in size geographically. Its role as a leader in world politics as one of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council is also bringing China to global prominence as well.

Up to this point, China has maintained a relatively low profile on the world stage with regard to the issue of terrorism driven by radical Islam. But its obvious return to the traditional Communist government intolerance for any religious practice, however – particularly timed to coincide with Ramadan — indicates a likely change in that attitude.

What remains to be seen is how local Muslims will respond to the whip, and whether – and how – fellow Muslims around the world will protest on their behalf.

Israel Has 80 Nuclear Warheads, Says Swiss Research Unit

Monday, June 15th, 2015

Israel has 80 nuclear warheads, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said Monday in a report that estimated the world’s number of warheads fell from 22,600 to 15,850 since 2010.

Most of the drop is due to a reduction in stockpiles in Russia and the United States, it reported. However, the Institute also pointed to “extensive and expensive long-term modernization programs” in both countries.

SIPRI researcher Shannon Kile said in a statement:

Despite renewed international interest in prioritizing nuclear disarmament, the modernization programs under way in the nuclear weapon-possessing states suggests that none of them will give up their nuclear arsenals in the foreseeable future.

The 1968 Nuclear Non- Proliferation Treaty recognizes three other countries as legally armed with nuclear warheads — China with 260, France with 300 Britain with 215.

Israel, whose policy of “ambiguity” does not admit or deny the presence of nuclear warheads, formerly was estimated by other sources to have at least 200 nuclear warheads.

SIPRI estimates that India has 90-100 warheads and that Pakistan has 100-120 warheads.

North Korea, where the Institute said it was difficult to access “technical progress,” was estimated to have 6-8 warheads.
It added that its estimates are not as reliable for Russia and China as they are for the United States.

China, Russia Unite in Joint Mediterranean Naval Drill

Friday, May 1st, 2015

For the first time ever, China and Russia will conduct a naval exercise together in the Mediterranean Sea. It is intended to become an annual exchange plan, said a spokesperson for the Chinese military.

In a news briefing on Thursday (April 30), Speaking for the Ministry of National Defense (MND) of the People’s Republic of China, spokesperson Sr. Col. Geng Yansheng confirmed “the navies of the two countries are going to conduct a joint exercise code-named “Joint Sea 2015-I” in the waters of the Mediterranean in mid-May.”

“Nine surface ships from the Chinese and Russian navies will take part in the joint exercise,” he said. “China will send three ships of 19th Chinese naval escort task force to take part in the joint exercise. The three ships… have just completed their escort mission in the Gulf of Aden and waters off the Somali coast.”

The exercise is designed to hone the skills of naval personnel in “protection of navigation safety in the far seas,” he said.

It is also intended to “strengthen the pragmatic cooperation between China and Russia and to improve the capabilities of the two navies to deal with maritime threats. What needs to be stressed is that the joint exercise is not targeting any third party and not related to the regional situation,” he underlined.

Russia has continued to arm both Iran and Syria. Both in turn arm Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorists in the north, who have ties to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorists within and south of Israel. Despite Israel’s warming diplomatic relationship with China, this exercise may also signal a new direction for the People’s Republic — a concern the spokesperson clearly attempted to allay.

Israel is maintaining a number of natural gas reserve fields in the Mediterranean waters off its northern coast. To its south, its own navy is on constant alert to prevent Iranian-backed terrorists from smuggling weaponry and other contraband to terrorists in Gaza who hope to annihilate the Jewish State.

Other nations who may be affected by this exercise include Turkey, Lebanon, Greece, Crete and Cyprus — all with interests in the gas fields and all of which have either been launching pads or port stops for Hamas “humanitarian” terror flotillas in the past.

Lausanne Talks May Be Camouflage for Iranian Nukes in North Korea

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Iran’s dragging on the negotiations with the P5+1 on an agreement covering its nuclear program may be one of the biggest con jobs in modern history, camouflaging secret nuclear development in  North Korea, which has been providing technology and advice to Tehran.

North Korea was caught red-handed helping the construction of a nuclear facility in Syria, heavily backed by Iran, when Israel bombed the site in 2007.

The Daily Beast reported Monday that Iran since 2012 has deployed personnel at a North Korean military base near China, which along with Russia has been the biggest investor in Iran’s program to reach nuclear capability.

North Korea, which already is a nuclear threat to the world, would love to see Iran in possession of a nuclear bomb to help it threaten the West. Evil always has an insatiable appetite for more evil.

Iran is the trickiest of tricksters. It has pulled the wool over the eyes of the Obama administration and its predecessors, which is not difficult considering that their foreign policy advisers are blind to foreign cultures and assume everyone in the world thinks like and acts like Americans and that shaking hands means a deal is a deal.

The talks in Lausanne are a great stage for the Islamic Republic to act as if it is hanging on to every possibility to refuse to concede to the West, as if doing so would delay its being able to point a nuclear weapon at Israel.

But if a deal finally signed, and if that happens it won’t be much before one minute before President Barack Obama’s self-imposed deadline, it won’t take into account possible Iranian nuclear development in North Korea. The menace from the Far East has sent hundreds  of scientists and technicians to Iranian sites.

Tehran also has a healthy, or unhealthy, delegation in North Korea. The Daily Beast reported.

Larry Niksch of the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., estimates that the North’s proceeds from this trade with Iran are ‘between $1.5 billion and $2.0 billion annually…..

Iran has bought a lot with its money. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, thought to be Tehran’s chief nuclear scientist, was almost certainly in North Korea at Punggye-ri in February 2013 to witness Pyongyang’s third atomic test. Reports put Iranian technicians on hand at the site for the first two detonations as well.

The North Koreans have also sold Iran material for bomb cores, perhaps even weapons-grade uranium….

In 2011, The Trumpet wrote,” Bruce Bennett, a senior defense analyst for the Rand Corporation, an intelligence company used by the U.S. military, says, “There’ve been stories of Iranians at the nuclear tests in North Korea. So if information is really being shared then you’ve got a much more dangerous situation, because most people would argue that the North Korean nuclear program is out ahead of Iran, and we don’t want Iran having that assistance.”

So let’s say Iran signs an agreement – and remember, this in only a “framework” agreement, one of the Obama administration’s favorite terms and which always turns out to be a basis for more concessions in a supposed final agreement.

A deal would not prevent Iran from buying enriched uranium from North Korea, and the Islamic Republic will have plenty of cash to do so because a deal will be accompanied by the removal of sanctions.

If a deal is signed by midnight March 31, Iran can celebrate April Fool’s Day by opening up its sites for inspection, after all traces of nuclear weapons research are removed, and carry on  freely in North Korea to assemble a nuclear weapon.

The Daily Beast wrote very succinctly:

The  Iranians could be busy assembling the components for a bomb elsewhere. In other words, they will be one day away from a bomb—the flight time from Pyongyang to Tehran—not one year as American and other policymakers hope.

It also pointed out the obvious other probable partner in evil, namely China, which has invested millions in Iran’s nuclear infrastructure. China previously has violated U.N. Security Council resolutions by sending to Iran materials that could be used for building atomic bombs.
