Kerry Says Saudi Arabia to Support US Attack on Syria

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

Saudi Arabia has agreed to support an American-led attack on Syria, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stated on Sunday in Paris, where he met with Arab League Secretary General Nabil Elarab and nine Arab foreign ministers.

He said “a number of [Arab] countries” are ready to sign a joint declaration blaming Syrian President Bassar al-Assad for the use of chemical weapons.

Qatari Foreign Minister Khalid al-Attiyah said that “foreign intervention is already present by several parties,” referring to Russia, Iran and Hezbollah. “We call on all other countries to intervene to protect the Syrian people,” he added.

Israeli Requests for Gas Mask Kits Rise over Syria Fears

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

Requests by Israeli citizens for gas mask kits have risen fourfold in recent days as concern over events in Syria has increased.

Citizens have been visiting post offices throughout the country to pick up their Atomic Biological Chemical protective kits, or ABC kits, over fears of the threat of a chemical weapon attack from Syria or Iran.

Approximately 60 percent of Israelis currently possess gas masks, but  a budget allocation of $362 million is necessary for 2014 in order to equip the remaining citizens, according to reports.

Hundreds of Syrians were killed last week in eastern Damascus suburbs by an alleged chemical weapons attack by the government army.

Obama Rejects Syrian Offer for Inspection, Calling to ‘Too Late’

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

The Obama administration has rejected Syria’ belated offer for the United Nations to inspect the site of a chemical weapons attack last week, saying the evidence already has disappeared, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The quick rejection of the Syrian offer, officially made only hours earlier, are a clear indication that President Barack Obama is ready to act against the Assad regime and perhaps regain its standing as a world leader if it can put a stop to the genocide in Syria.

“If the Syrian government had nothing to hide and wanted to prove to the world that it had not used chemical weapons in this incident, it would have ceased its attacks on the area and granted immediate access to the U.N. five days ago,” the Journal quoted a senior Obama administration official as saying.

The same anonymous official said earlier in the day that there is “little doubt” that Assad’s regime, and not rebels, were behind the chemical attack, apparently nerve gas, which killed anywhere between 300 to more than 1,000 men, women and children.

Nevertheless, U.N. officials plan to inspect the scene of the attack on Monday.

George Galloway Reveals: Israel Behind Chemical Attack (Video)

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

George Galloway, the British pro-Hamas and pro-anything that can destroy civilization, has revealed to the world that Israel supplied Al Qaeda with chemical weapons to use against Syrians in the civil war against the Assad regime.

His accusations came the same week that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of being behind the military coup in Egypt that ousted Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi.

It is nice to know that Israel has so much power. It can engineer the end of a regime in Egypt. It can turn Al Qaeda into a close ally and manipulate it to attack Assad’s loyalists.

Since Israel obviously runs the world, it is clear that Netanyahu is behind the entire peace process show, is manipulating the Boycott Israel movement and is bankrolling the next mayor of New York City, no matter who he will be.

Galloway could be laughed at as a jerk, which he is. No mainstream leader listens to him.

But “mainstream” is becoming an endangered species in Europe, where the growing anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic population will believe anything and everything if Israel comes out stinking. That is why Galloway last year won a surprise victory in a special election to win a seat in the British Parliament, representing a district that has large number of Muslims.

In his speech on Friday, which was posted on a video by the Iranian government’s Press TV, Galloway commented on the chemical attack in Syria.”

He declared, “If there’s been any use of nerve gas it’s the rebels that used it. If there has been a use of chemical weapons it was Al-Qaeda that used the chemical weapons – who gave al-Qaeda the chemical weapons? Here’s my theory, Israel gave them the chemical weapons.”

Well, at least he said it was only a theory. Erdogan went one better, or one worse, by saying he had evidence that Israel was behind the ouster of Morsi. And when the United States rejected his charges, Erdogan followed up on Saturday that he was “saddened” that the White House chose to respond. His comments were directed at Israel and not the Obama administration, he told a crowd in his home town.

“What is it to the White House that it should respond? It should not have mentioned it; it should not had reacted like this. As two members of NATO, that one ally shows this kind of approach to the other is not appropriate.”

Galloway does not need evidence, false or not. All he needs is an audience, and his is growing.

US Has ‘Little Doubt’ that Assad’s Regime Used Chemical Weapons

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

The Obama administration said Sunday there is “very little doubt” that the regime of Syrian President Bassar al-Assad used chemical weapons in an attack on civilians last week, killing hundreds of people.

A government source, who insisted on anonymity,  said that American intelligence officers reported to the White House on “the reported number of victims, reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured, and witness accounts.”

The official Syria media announced Sunday afternoon that authorities will allow United Nations officials to inspect the area of the chemical attack, but if details are ironed out, evidence of the attack likely will have disappeared by the time the officials arrive.

Syrian Opposition Claims Gulf States Sent 400 Tons of Weapons

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

Gulf states supporting Syria rebels in the civil war against Syrian President Bassar al-Assad have sent them 400 tons of arms, opposition sources told Reuters Sunday.

Most of the shipments contained ammunition for anti-=-aircraft machine guns and shoulder-fired weapons. The ammunition and arms cross into northern Syria form Turkey.

The movement of weapons for rebels reportedly has increased sharply since last week’s reports of the large-scale use of chemical weapons in Syria, where both Assad and rebels accuse each other of using chemical warfare.

Netanyahu Worried about ‘Tragedy and Crime’ in Syria

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the Cabinet Sunday morning that Syria falls into the same category as Iran when it comes to Israel’s having to strike first in order to defend itself against a threat that could destroy the country.

Referring to the use of chemical weapons across the northern border, the Prime Minister said, “What happened in Syria is both a terrible tragedy and an awful crime. Our hearts go out to the women, children and babies, the civilians who were so brutally attacked by weapons of mass destruction.

“From this we draw three conclusions: One, this situation must not be allowed to continue.

“Two, the most dangerous regimes in the world must not be allowed to possess the most dangerous weapons in the world. And three, we expect that this will stop, of course, but we must always remember our sages’ ancient principle: “If we are not for ourselves, who will be for us?”

He explained that “our finger must always be on the pulse” and that “ours is a responsible finger and if necessary, it will also be on the trigger.”
