Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.  Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad.  C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

Western human rights organizations: Amnesty International and the US. State Department...

Suzanne Nossel, Executive Director of Amnesty International USA, was drawn directly from the US State Department - again, utterly contradicting Amnesty's claims of being "independent" of governments and corporate interests. Nossel continued promoting US foreign policy, but simply behind a podium with a new logo, Amnesty International's logo, attached to it. Amnesty International's website specifically mentions Nossel's role behind US State Department-backed UN resolutions regarding Iran, Syria, Libya, and Cote d'Ivoire.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain would step up its support for the armed groups in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million). The money is used for bomb attacks in Syria.

EU wins Nobel Peace Prize for promoting 'democracy'...

NATO.bombs.Nasser.university3.jpgsirte.destroyed1.jpgAFP - Oslo, October 12, 2012

The Nobel Peace Prize was on Friday awarded to the European Union, an institution currently wracked by crisis but is credited with bringing more than a half century of peace to a continent ripped apart by World War II.

"The union and its forerunners have for over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe," Nobel Committee president Thorbjoern Jagland said in Oslo.

"Over a seventy-year period, Germany and France had fought three wars. Today war between Germany and France is unthinkable. This shows how, through well-aimed efforts and by building up mutual confidence, historical enemies can become close partners," he said, explaining this year's prize decision. Institutions that have won

The award is however a surprise at a time when European solidarity is facing its most daunting challenge in decades amid deep rifts between a south drowning in debt and a wealthier north, led by Germany, only reluctantly coming to the rescue.

European Union President Herman Van Rompuy said on Friday that the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize was a tribute to more than six decades of EU countries acting to "overcome war and divisions."

The prize recognised "the unique effort by ever more European states to overcome war and divisions and to jointly shape a continent of peace and prosperity," Van Rompuy said on Twitter after the award was announced in Oslo.

Whether or not that begrudging assistance will keep the European project afloat remains to be seen, but the deep crisis has broadened the gulf already felt between citizens in the different member states and a Brussels long seen as too distant and bureaucratic. EU Parliament head 'touched, honoured'

But the creation of the organisation is credited with helping to bring peace and stability to the war-torn continent by bringing together arch-enemies France and Germany and herding them down the same path.

Despite recurring difficulties, the EU has become the biggest common market in the world, allowing free circulation of goods, people, services and capital.

Over the years, the pioneering project has swelled to encompass 27 countries which not long ago sat on either side of the Iron Curtain.

They came to the table with vastly different economic, social and cultural situations, but following intense integration efforts, a full 17 of them now share a common currency. Full list of Nobel Peace Prize winners

This year's prize will also cause shockwaves in host country Norway, which itself has rejected joining the union twice, in 1972 and 1994, and where three quarters of the inhabitants today say they are opposed to membership, according to recent polls.

Syria fights for national sovereignty

nasser-photo.jpg

Speech by President Nasser of the United Arab Republic, September 15, 1956

In these decisive days in the history of mankind, these days in which truth struggles to have itself recognized in international chaos where powers of evil domination and imperialism have prevailed, Egypt stands firmly to preserve her sovereignty. Your country stands solidly and staunchly to preserve her dignity against imperialistic schemes of a number of nations who have uncovered their desires for domination and supremacy.

In these days and in such circumstances Egypt has resolved to show the world that when small nations decide to preserve their sovereignty, they will do that all right and that when these small nations are fully determined to defend their rights and maintain their dignity, they will undoubtedly succeed in achieving their ends. . . .

I am speaking in the name of every Egyptian Arab and in the name of all free countries and of all those who believe in liberty and are ready to defend it. I am speaking in the name of principles proclaimed by these countries in the Atlantic Charter. But they are now violating these principles and it has become our lot to shoulder the responsibility of reaffirming and establishing them anew. . . .

We have tried by all possible means to cooperate with those countries which claim to assist smaller nations and which promised to collaborate with us but they demanded their fees in advance. This we refused so they started to fight with us. They said they will pay toward building the High Dam and then they withdrew their offer and cast doubts on the Egyptian economy. Are we to declaim [disclaim?] our sovereign right? Egypt insists her sovereignty must remain intact and refuses to give up any part of that sovereignty for the sake of money.

Egypt nationalized the Egyptian Suez Canal company. When Egypt granted the concession to de Lesseps it was stated in the concession between the Egyptian Government and the Egyptian company that the company of the Suez Canal is an Egyptian company subject to Egyptian authority. Egypt nationalized this Egyptian company and declared freedom of navigation will be preserved.

But the imperialists became angry. Britain and France said Egypt grabbed the Suez Canal as if it were part of France or Britain. The British Foreign Secretary forgot that only two years ago he signed an agreement stating the Suez Canal is an integral part of Egypt.

Egypt declared she was ready to negotiate. But as soon as negotiations began threats and intimidations started. . . .

Eden stated in the House of Commons there shall be no discrimination between states using the canal. We on our part reaffirm that and declare there is no discrimination between canal users. He also said Egypt shall not be allowed to succeed because that would spell success for Arab nationalism and would be against their policy, which aims at the protection of Israel.

Today they are speaking of a new association whose main objective would be to rob Egypt of the canal and deprive her of rightful canal dues. Suggestions made by Eden in the House of Commons which have been backed by France and the United States are a clear violation of the 1888 convention, since it is impossible to have two bodies organizing navigation in the canal. . . .

By stating that by succeeding, Abdel Nasser would weaken Britain : s stand against Arab nationalism, Eden is in fact admitting his real objective is not Abdel Nasser as such but rather to defeat Arab nationalism and crush its cause. Eden speaks and finds his own answer. A month ago he let out the cry that be was after Abdel Nasser. Today the Egyptian people are fully conscious of their sovereign rights and Arab nationalism is fully awakened to its new destiny....

Those who attack Egypt will never leave Egypt alive. We shall fight a regular war, a total war, a guerrilla war. Those who attack Egypt will soon realize they brought disaster upon themselves. He who attacks Egypt attacks tile whole Arab world. They say in their papers the -whole thing will be over in forty-eight hours. They do not know how strong we really are.

We believe in international law. But we will never submit. We shall show the world bow a small country can stand in the face of great powers threatening with armed might. Egypt might be a small power but she is great inasmuch as she has faith in her power and convictions. I feel quite certain every Egyptian shares the same convictions as I do and believes in everything I am stressing now.

We shall defend our freedom and independence to the last drop of our blood. This is the stanch feeling of every Egyptian. The whole Arab nation will stand by us in our common fight against aggression and domination. Free peoples, too, people who are really free will stand by us and support us against the forces of tyranny….

War against Syria: Germany is weapons suplier to Turkey

Enver Paşa with a German officer.jpg

After US and UK, Germany is the largest weapons supplier to Turkey

NATO members have both sold and donated a wide range of weapons to Turkey, including more than 500 combat aircraft, 500 combat helicopters, 5,000 tanks, and thousands of artillery pieces, mortars, machine guns and assault rifles. The United States has been Turkey's main supplier, providing about 80% of Turkey's arsenal. Over the past decade (up to 1995), the US Congress has appropriated $5.3 billion in military aid (grants and loans to purchase weapons) for Turkey, making Turkey the third largest recipient of US military aid (after Israel and Egypt).

Turkey has recently invited bids for the supply of four early warning aircraft (AWACS) (mid-1998). The contract is worth around $1 billion. The aircraft would enable Turkey not only to command and control its own airspace but also that of the surrounding region. Likely suppliers are Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grunman, and Israel Aircraft Industries.

After US and UK, Germany is the largest weapons supplier to Turkey. Germany is currently trying to sell Turkey 1,000 Leopard II main battlefield tanks.

1914 - The Ottoman Empire Enters WWI on the side of the Central Powers

The Ottoman Empire joined the Central Powers to form the Triple Alliance with the signing of the August 1914 Turco-German Alliance. Turkey formally entered World War I on 28 October 1914 with the bombing of Russian Black Sea ports. The Triple Entente, or Allied Powers, declared war on the Ottoman Empire on November 4.

Two major factors led to Ottoman involvement on the side of the Central Powers: German pressure and the opportunism of Turkish minister of war Enver Pasha. Other motives for joining the Central Powers were the German victories early in the War and Turkey's friction with the Triple Entente. Germany's aim was clear: to keep Turkey from joining the enemy (and by gaining Ottoman support, encourage Romania and Bulgaria to enter the Alliance). The German military mission of 1913 to Turkey under Liman von Sanders organized the Turkish army and navy under German leadership and brought forth the Turco-German Alliance. The secret treaty (only five people in Turkey were aware of it, one being Enver Pasha) was signed 2 August 1914.

Stavridis visit Turkey for regional discussions

ANKARA: Navy Adm. James G. Stavridis, who holds the two highest strategic positions in NATO, discussed the “events transpiring in the Levant” during a two-day visit to Turkey this week, according to his official website.

The visit, which took place on Oct. 1 and 2, became public through an announcement by the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) on its website on Oct. 2. Stavridis spent the first day of his visit in İzmir. On Oct. 2, he held separate meetings with Turkish Chief of General Staff Gen. Necdet Özel and Defense Minister İsmet Yılmaz.

The Allied Air Command in İzmir came under scrutiny during the discussions. The command in İzmir was most recently on the public agenda during the debates over NATO’s early warning system in Kürecik, Malatya, which is a part of NATO’s missile defense shield. The Kürecik radar system was installed to observe Iranian skies for any missile threat.

Stavridis heads both the U.S. European Command (USEUCOM) and is the Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR). The SACEUR is responsible to NATO’s highest military authority, the Military Committee, for the conduct of all NATO military operations.

NATO chief’s term extended one year

The NATO military alliance is extending the term in office of its current chief, allowing him to remain in office until the end of July 2014, the Associated Press reported.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, a former Danish prime minister, took office in 2009. Since then, he has overseen operations in Afghanistan and the air campaign over Libya. He will leave office shortly before the conclusion of NATO’s combat operations in Afghanistan, at the end of 2014.

“I am honored by the trust and support the allied governments have shown me,” Fogh Rasmussen said in a brief appearance yesterday.

Ambassadors from the 28 NATO countries made the decision to extend his term yesterday.

NATO chiefs are traditionally appointed for a four-year term with the possibility of a year’s extension.

There have been cases in which a NATO chief’s term has been extended for a few months beyond that, but in recent times secretaries-general have not been given full second terms.

Turkish People Rally Against War With Syria

Turkish People Rally Against War With Syria As West Backs It

October 4, 2012

Turkish parliament authorizes cross-border military operations in Syria

====

“Why would you hide this from the people? Will it be your children that go to war? People are not going to know why they have sent their children to war.”

[A] real anti-war storm has been initiated by Turkish and foreign activists on social networks both inside and outside of Turkey. The hashtag #savasahayir (no to war) has quickly spread beyond Turkish borders into global social networking.

====

Turkey’s parliament has authorized cross-border military operations into Syria ‘when necessary.’ The move follows a cross-border mortar-shelling into Turkey which Damascus has apologized for.

Parliament voted 320-129 in favor of the bill, though the government was quick to eliminate the perception they country preparing for a unilateral military assault.

“The bill is not for war…It has deterrent qualities,” Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Besir Atalay told reporters after the vote on Thursday.

He stressed that Turkey’s priority was to act in conjunction with “international institutions” on Syria. Atalay further said the Syrian government “has admitted what it did and apologized.” The deputy premier added that Syria had given its assurances “such an incident would not be repeated.”

The Turkish army has been shelling Syrian military positions since Wednesday in retaliation for shelling conducted from Syrian territory that killed five civilians.

The government-initiated debates in the Turkish parliament took place behind closed doors. The cabinet of Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan claimed the Syrian military had launched an act of aggression against Turkey.

MP Muharrem Ince from the opposition Republican People’s Party said the motion was dangerous as it had no clearly defined limits.

“You can wage a world war with [this motion],” Hürriyet Daily News cites him as saying.

Ince also lambasted the fact that the session took place behind closed doors.

“Why would you hide this from the people? Will it be your children that go to war? People are not going to know why they have sent their children to war,” he said.

On Wednesday at least three mortar bombs fired from Syria killed five civilians and wounded at least eight in the Turkish town of Akcakale. It was the second such mortar attack on the Turkish town since last Friday. Foreign Minister Davutoglu warned he would take action if there were a repeat in the wake of the shelling.

After a heated debate an urgent parliamentary session has opted to apply the new law.

Originally the bill targeted militants of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) fighting for an independent Kurdish state for the last three decades. The Kurds have bases in northern Iraq, de facto, not controlled by the government in Baghdad. The Turkish military has conducted a number of air and ground assaults on Kurdish positions in Iraq…

The debates around the move have sparked sharp negative reactions among the Turkish population. While a small group of anti-war protesters rallied outside the Turkish parliament in Ankara, a real anti-war storm has been initiated by Turkish and foreign activists on social networks both inside and outside of Turkey. The hashtag #savasahayir (no to war) has quickly spread beyond Turkish borders into global social networking.

Syria before UN: 'New Colonial Policies Under Pretext of Humanitarian Intervention'

Al-Moallem.jpg

Al-Moallem: Well-Known Countries Pursue New Colonial Policies Under Pretext of Humanitarian Intervention

Oct 01, 2012
 
NEW YORK, (SANA) - Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem
on Monday delivered a speech before the United Nations General
Assembly.

Following the full text of al-Moallem's speech

Mr. Vuk Jeremic President of the 67th session of the General Assembly,
Excellences, Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like to congratulate you and your friendly country, the
Republic of Serbia, on your election as President of the General
Assembly at its current session, and to wish you success in conducting
our work in a way that brings back to the President of the General
Assembly its important and neutral role in fulfilling his duties away
from any political, national or international agendas that violate the
rules of international law and contradict efforts to achieve security
and stability in the world. We also wish success to the Secretary
General of the United Nations in carrying out his duties in enhancing
the purposes and principles enshrined in the Charter of the United
Nations.

Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen, Our contemporary world faces many
events that are affecting its states, and continue to cast their
shadow on the international scene. Many countries are facing
political, economic and financial crises which exceed the capacity of
States to cope with their consequences individually. While the peoples
of the world wait to see effective and coordinated international
efforts to overcome those crises, the reality indicates, instead, the
escalation of hegemony and domination on the fortunes of nations and
peoples in a way that contradicts the principles and purposes
enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations and the norms of
international law. Instead of seeking to contribute to the settlement
of regional and international disputes by peaceful means, some
well-known countries continue to pursue new colonial policies based on
political hypocrisy in dealing with those crises, under the pretext of
humanitarian intervention these countries interfere in domestic
affairs of states, and impose unilateral economic sanctions that lack
moral and legal basis, and under the pretext of concepts such as
"Responsibility to Protect", drums of war are beaten, and sedition and
unrest are spreading and damaging the structure of national societies.
Perhaps, worse of all, is to see permanent members of the Security
Council, who launched wars under the pretext of combating terrorism,
now support terrorism in my country without any regard to the United
Nations resolutions that established the regulations and mechanisms
for concerted international efforts to fight this scourge away from
political polarization and double standards.

Mr. President,

For more than one year now, my country has been facing organized
terrorism, that affected our citizens, our human and scientific
resources, national establishments, and also much of Syria's historic
and archeological landmarks through terrorist bombings, assassinations
and massacres, looting and sabotage activities that horrified citizens
in many parts of Syria. The latest example of this terrorist bombing
took place recently in Damascus on 26 / 9 / 2012. A terrorist group
with the name of "Jabhat al-Nosrah", one of the al-Qaeda arms, took
the responsibility of this attack. It is no surprise that the Security
Council failed to condemn this and other terrorist bombings, because
some of its members are supporting such acts. This terrorism which is
externally supported is accompanied by unprecedented media provocation
based on igniting religious extremism sponsored by well-known states
in the region to facilitate the flow of arms, money and fighters
through the borders of some neighboring countries. Those states either
turn a blind eye to the activities of terrorist groups crossing their
borders, or provide active material and logistical support from their
territory for armed terrorist groups. These facts make me question
whether this international consensus by our states on combating
terrorism was serious, or it was just merely ink on paper? In what
context can we classify the explicit request of the United States from
the armed terrorist groups not to surrender their arms as a response
to amnesty decrees and decisions issued by the Syrian leadership? We
also wonder to what extent the statements of Qatar, Saudi Arabia,
Turkey, the United States, and France that clearly induce and support
terrorism in Syria with money, weapons and foreign fighters, are in
line with the international responsibilities of these countries in
combating terrorism. One of the ironies that we face is represented by
encouraging the extremists in countries within and outside our region
to go to the borders of Syria, and enter country, to carry out
terrorist acts under the name of "jihad" in collaboration with
terrorists from the inside, and this is a fact confirmed by reports of
both international and Arab observers. Until today, and as a result of
this terrorism, Syria has lost thousands of martyrs from the military
and civilians as a price of its quest to defend the integrity of the
Syrian state and its citizens in the face of this global terrorist
campaign.

Mr. President, The Syrian government has the initiative to call for
dialogue at the beginning of the events that took place, without that
call finding any positive response from most opposition parties. Also,
My Government responded positively throughout the crisis for each
sincere initiative that aims to help finding a peaceful solution based
on national dialogue among Syrians, and rejects external manipulation,
and emphasizes preserving the blood of the Syrians and the unity of
Syria and its future. Based on this principled position, and despite
the conviction of the Syrian leadership that there are no sincere
intentions from some regional and international parties that push for
the escalation of the Syrian crisis and fueling its fie and prolonging
it through thwarting all attempts for dialogue, and insisting on
creating a state of instability to ensure the need for foreign
interference, despite all that, Syria cooperated with the Arab
Observers Mission, and the subsequent international initiatives linked
to the work of the UN Special Envoy Kofi Annan. Syria, out of
principle, received the United Nations Supervision Mission in Syria
(UNSMIS), and provided it with all the facilities that enabled it to
deploy in an unprecedented record time. The Syrian leadership, also,
announced its full commitment to the implementation of the Six Point
Plan presented by Mr. Annan, and started the practical implementation
of its provisions. It, also, welcomed the Geneva Communiqué that
stressed the need for the implementation of these provisions, but the
behavior of the armed groups that sought to exploit the Syrian
government's commitment to the plan and the Geneva Communiqué to
achieve gains on the ground and expand the area of their presence, in
addition to the statements issued by some Western and Arab countries,
all this clarified who are the actors and states working to thwart all
these Initiatives.

Syria has welcomed the appointment of Mr. Lakhdar Brahimi as the
Special Representative of the Secretary-General to succeed Mr. Annan,
and stressed its willingness to fully cooperate with him on the
principles agreed upon by the international community, particularly
the Six-Point Plan. I would like to tell you that the success of any
international effort requires, in addition to the commitment of the
Syrian government, committing these states supporting armed groups in
my country, particularly Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Libya and
others, to stop arming, funding, training and harboring armed
terrorist groups, and instead to encourage dialogue and renounce
violence.

Mr. President, For more than one year now, Syria has been saying that
what my country is witnessing is a two-sided problem: the first side
is linked to the need for political, economic and social reforms
demanded by the public; the second is the exploitation of those needs
and demands for objectives that are completely different from the
demands of the Syrian people and their interests, and make these
peaceful demands as a ladder for armed groups working to sow sedition
and undermine security in my country. I referred to this in my speech
from this podium last year. I come back today to tell you that the
state in Syria made serious and important reform steps that culminated
in a new constitution that embraces political pluralism, and was
adopted by referendum; consequently parliamentary elections, which
were open to multiple political parties, took place and, Now I tell
you that Syria is continuing to work with the patriotic components in
the opposition to build a new and pluralistic Syria that responds to
the aspirations of its people, and is determined at the same time to
carry her duties in protecting her people from jihadist and takfiri
terrorism, through which armed terrorist groups are working to spread
chaos and create sedition among Syrians and threaten their peaceful
coexistence.

Mr. President,

We heard calls from this podium, and on other platforms, some calls
from those who are ignorant of the facts or maybe ignoring them, or
also from those who are shareholders in exacerbating them, that
invites the President of the Syrian Arab Republic to step down. This
is a blatant interference in the domestic affairs of Syria, and the
unity of its people and its sovereignty.

The Syrian people is the only part authorized to choose its own future
and the shape of its own state that accommodates all groups and
spectrum of the Syrian people, including those who were deceived and
chose the wrong way. The Syrian people is the one to choose its
leadership through the ballot box which represents the most important
way of democracy and expression. If some countries that interfere in
the internal affairs of Syria are proud of their democracy and freedom
of decision of their people, the, it is better for those people to
choose its leadership through elections whose form is defined by the
new constitution and relevant laws, and then the ballot box will have
the final say.

I say to those countries enough illusions, and I invite the national
opposition to work together to stop the shedding of Syrian blood, and
to sit at the dialogue table and participate in the making of the
present and the future of Syria. We don’t bet on any party or factor
apart from the Syrian people which is determined, in all its
components, to reject all forms of foreign interference in its
domestic affairs, and to defeat the advocates of the project of
sectarianism, extremism and terrorism, because the bond is very strong
in my country between state policies and the aspirations of the
people.

Mr. President, Despite all that I said about what my country is
experiencing, we still believe in political solution as an essential
way to exit out of the crisis, and I call from this platform for:

First: all parties and political groups, inside and outside Syria, to
a constructive dialogue under the umbrella of the homeland, and the
doors of Syria, as is her heart, are open to anyone who wants
construction and dialogue. To achieve this, I call all countries
represented in the General Assembly to exert pressure to end violence
in my country through ending of arming, financing, harboring and
training of terrorist groups.

Second: the results of this national dialogue, after agreement by all
parties, will be the map and the future way of the country in
establishing a more pluralistic and democratic Syria.

Mr. President, These events in Syria have led to growing humanitarian
needs in several key sectors in areas affected by the terrorism of
Takfiri groups, which led to the worsening of the living conditions of
the Syrian citizens there. While my government is working hard to meet
the basic needs of citizens who have been forced by the violence of
the armed groups to flee their homes, some have sought to fabricate a
refugee crisis through inciting armed groups to intimidate Syrian
civilians in border areas and forcing them to flee to neighboring
countries. There, they are either accommodated in military training
camps, or in what resembles places of detention, amid arid of rugged
regions, and exploited their plight to get aid spent mostly on goals
that have no relevance to humanitarian objectives. I appeal from this
podium to those Syrian citizens to return to their towns and villages
where the state will guarantee their safe return and their precious
lives away from inhuman conditions they suffer in these camps.

At this point let me ask a legitimate question about the credibility
of those who claim to care for providing humanitarian assistance as a
response to the needs of the Syrians, and the consistency of those
claims with the policy of tightening economic sanctions that badly
affect the living conditions of the Syrian citizens. How can imposing
sanctions on the banking, health and transport sectors be consistent
with caring for the best interest of the Syrians? I also wonder if the
legitimate public demands of our citizens, to which the Syrian
leadership responded transparently and sincerely, can justify their
use as an excuse to continue providing all forms of military,
financial and media support to those killing innocent people in Syria,
including journalists, doctors, university professors and even
religious dignitaries? Or is this the practical interpretation of the
concept of "creative chaos" which only serve the expansionist
interests of Israel?

Mr. President, What is happening in my country must not make us lose
our basic compass which is Palestine and the Golan Heights, therefore
the Syrian Arab Republic confirms its adherence to her natural right
to restore the full occupied Syrian Golan up to the line of June 6th,
1967, and its refusal of all the measures taken by Israel, the
occupying power, to change the natural, geographical and demographic
aspects in clear violation of the relevant resolutions of the Security
Council, particularly its resolution No 497 of 1981. Syrian renews its
support for the legitimacy of recognition by international community
of a free and independent Palestinian State on the Palestinian
territories occupied in 1967.

The failure of efforts to achieve just and comprehensive peace in the
Middle East on the basis of international terms of reference adopted
by the international community as a basis for peace between
Palestinians and Israelis is due, as everyone knows, to the unilateral
positions and actions of Israel, particularly Israel's insistence on
continuing its settlement policy and evasion of requirements of peace.

Mr. President, My country renews the call for the international
community to work to free the Middle East of all weapons of mass
destruction, and we remind in this context of the initiative presented
by Syria during its membership of the Security Council by the end of
2003, and the call upon the Council to adopt it. Syria stresses that
evacuating the region of all weapons of mass destruction is
unachievable without forcing Israel, the only nuclear power in the
region, to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and to put its
nuclear facilities under the inspection of the International Atomic
Energy Agency (IAEA). At the same time we emphasize on what is
stipulated in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty of the light of all
States to acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

Mr. President, The insistence of the United States and countries of
the European Union and others to adopt unilateral economic measures
contradicts the regulations of international law and the principles of
free trade, and raises questions about the legality and morality of
such practices. Based on this, we call for the lifting of the embargo
imposed on Cuba by the United States for decades. We also renew our
call for the lifting and stopping of all unilateral coercive measures
imposed on the peoples of other countries, such as Venezuela, Belarus,
Iran, Syria and the DPRK.

Mr. President, Our aspiration to achieve a positive reform of the
international organization stems from our desire to find a world based
on justice, security and prosperity for all the peoples of the world,
away from the colonial tendencies of some countries that seek to
exploit the United Nations to achieve their own interests at the
expense of other countries. We are all hope that the United Nations
can take the people of the world to a better future that fulfills
their aspirations in life, coexistence, development and food
sufficiency away from all forms of tension, confrontation and wars,
pursuant to what is established by the United Nations Charter
principles and purposes seeking to preserve the sovereignty of States
and equality among them in rights and duties.

Thank you, Mr. President.

TEHRAN, (SANA) – Advisor of the Iranian Islamic Revolution's Supreme Leader for International Affairs, Ali Akbar Velayati, said that the western countries waged a war against Syria to compensate for their losses in the regions of North Africa and the Middle East.

In a speech on the occasion of starting the new academic year at the Iranian National Defense University, Velayati stressed that Syria's victory over the armed terrorists groups, USA, and western and Arab countries is inevitable.

He added that some countries which wanted to downfall the Syrian government are now adopting Iran's calls for holding dialogue between the Syrian government and opposition.

He highlighted that the stances of some regional countries, which were arming and funding the Syrian opposition, have changed in the last period.

Velayati expressed regret over the stances of some Arab countries which know nothing about democracy and falsely pretend they are keen on the Syrians and their right to vote.

He said that the confrontation line between the East and West is in the Middle East and in Syria, adding that the presence of US and Russian military fleets in the Mediterranean Sea proves that a new cold war began, with the Middle East in its core.

The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

2) British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain would step up its support for the armed groups in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million). The money is used for bomb attacks in Syria.

8) The Lebanese army intelligence has seized a large quantity of wea Lutfallah II container pons hidden inside cars aboard an Italian ship at Tripoli port, north of Lebanon, Lebanese security sources told Al-Manar TV.

9) This comes just days after the Lebanese Army Marines confiscated Lutfallah II arms shipment off the Lebanese port of Batoun while it was carrying 300,000 pounds of weapons within three containers. Reports said the cargo ship, which was flying the flag of Sierra-Leone, had left Libya and was bound to Syria.

12) US, Qatar and Saudi Arabia are arming AL-QAEDA Terrorists to commit Terrorism in Syria.

13) Over 30,000 various weapons have been channelled to Syria since unrest flared up there in April last year, Amin Khteit says. The overall amount of explosives makes up 300 tons. The deliveries were made by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. They depend on the United States, which is making every effort to overpower Syria.

French troops in Algeria

Between 1954, when the Algerian uprising against French colonial rule broke out, and 1962, when Algeria became an independent republic, some two million French soldiers crossed the Mediterranean to fight against the FLN's (National Liberation Front) guerrillas in an operation that marked a generation. Most of these soldiers were conscripts. In Paris, the developing war in Algeria led to the fall of six prime ministers, the collapse of the IVth republic, the return of General de Gaulle to power at the head of the Vth republic -- a vehicle of his own creation -- and near civil war following an attempted right-wing coup in Algiers.

During the war, atrocities were committed on both sides, and after it, with the general amnesty declared at Evian as part of its negotiated settlement, many of these were officially forgotten. France turned to interior self-modernization, while Algeria began a process of nation-building under the tutelage of the victorious FLN.

More recently, however, there has been a move to disinter the past in the wake of recent, well-publicized revelations in France concerning the extent of human-rights violations, specifically the torture and murder of those suspected of being members or sympathizers of the FLN, by the French army in Algeria and by the authorities in France itself. In recent months both the French president, Jacques Chirac, and the prime minister, Lionel Jospin, have referred to these reports, mostly stressing the need to consider them in their historical context and talking of the need for "national healing" to take place. "Let history do its work," said Chirac, interviewed recently on the television channel TF1. Former generals have also appeared on television admitting that they used torture to interrogate suspects during the Algerian War.

With the official records of the period remaining largely closed, however, and with those committing them never having been held accountable either for their orders or for their acts, other voices have been a lot less diplomatic than have those of the political establishment.

French troops in Syria

In 1920, an independent Arab kingdom of Syria was established under king Faysal of the Hashemite family. His rule ended after few months, following the clash between Syrian forces and regular French forces at the battle of Maysalun. French troops occupied Syria later that year after the league of Nations put Syrian under the French mandate. With the fall of France in 1940, Syria came under the control of the Vichy Government until the British and Free French occupied the country in July 1941. Continuing pressure from Syrian nationalist groups forced the French to evacuate their troops in April 1946, leaving the country in the hands of a republican government that had been formed during the mandate.

Alexey Plotnikov, an expert.Security Committee.Russian Duma, .jpgRussian Security Official: Syrian Government Controls Situation, Opposition's Operations Prove They Are Mercenaries 

 

Sep 29, 2012

MOSCOW, (SANA) – Alexey Plotnikov, an expert at the Security Committee of the Russian Duma, considered on Saturday that the Syrian Government is in control of the situation while the operations perpetrated by the opposition's gangs against Syrian civilians prove to the local and international community that these gangs are mercenaries and are not seeking to defend the Syrian people.

In an interview with Russia Today channel, Plotnikov said the opposition are spending the money that they receive through fighting and carrying out what they are ordered to do.

He added that changing the current situation in Syria requires the opposition to seriously engage into dialogue and negotiations if they really care for the destiny of the Syrian people as using force will lead to no way.

The Russian official stressed Russia's continued support to Syria to prevent it from getting to where other Arab states have reached.

Russia Calls to Unite Efforts to End Violence in Syria

Lavrov Calls on International Community to Unite Efforts to End Violence in Syria and Launch Negotiations

Sep 29, 2012

NEW YORK, (SANA) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held the countries, that reject the implementation of Geneva agreement on Syria, responsible for pushing Syria even deeper into internecine strife and continue militarizing the crisis as they only call the Syrian government to stop violence and encourage the opposition to continue the acts of violence.

Speaking at the 67th session of the UN General Assembly on Friday, Lavrov said "The international community should unify efforts to coerce all sides of the Syrian crisis to end violence immediately, launch dialogue and reach a middle-ground solution on the reforms that satisfy all spectrums of the Syrian people."

"Russia resolutely condemns all kinds of violence, from wherever source it comes from, and is convinced that there is still an opportunity to undertake collective actions," Lavrov added, asserting that extremist organizations including al-Qaeda have become more active in Syria and carried out terrorist acts against the inhabitants and the public infrastructure.

He underscored that practical steps to overcome the crisis need to begin through halting violence, releasing of prisoners and hostages and supplying of additional humanitarian aid, as this will create conditions to start an inter-Syrian dialogue.

He expressed Russia's support to the efforts of the UN envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi, asserting that his country will exert all efforts to make his mission a success.

Lavrov said that Russia supports the peoples' right to determine their own future and move to the most effective ways of state governance, stressing the importance that these changes take place away from violence and foreign interference.

Lavrov stressed the importance that the unfolding situation in the Middle East won't push the Palestinian cause to the peripheries, calling for a just and comprehensive settlement that leads to establishing a viable Palestinian state.

''States have to protect themselves from provocations and abusing religious feelings, but terrorist acts are unjustifiable, and so are attacks on diplomats and the UN staff,'' Lavrov added.

He added that slapping sanctions is, according to the UN Charter, the prerogative of the UN an such decisions are taken unanimously. H. Zain/ M. Ismael/Mazen

AMMAN, (SANA) - The salafist movement in Jordan on Friday announced that it has sent terrorists to Syria to participate in 'Jihad' against the Syrian army.

A source at the movement, who preferred not to be named, told the UPI that four of the salafist jihadist movement in al-Zarqa city, northeastern Jordan, already headed to Syria.

The source noted that the salafists, who are between 25 and 30, arrived on Thursday evening in Daraa in northern Syria.

Mohammad al-Shalabi, nicknamed Abi Sayyaf, who is a leader at the salafist jihadist movement in Jordan, announced last Sunday that he sent four of his followers to Syria for 'Jihad'.

He noted that some of the salafists go to Syria regularly, while others go personally.

Map of Belgium.jpg

Some weeks ago the Belgian Senator Nele Lijnen said that she intends to launch a discussion at the Belgian Senate regarding the fact that the terrorists in Syria possess weapons made in Belgium.  

But Belgium is not only responsible for sending weapons for terrorist bomb attacks in Syria.

The Belgian State Security knows that Belgian jihadists are going to Syria for organizing these bomb attacks.

On August 3th, the Belgian State Security "could not confirm" that Belgian jihadists are fighting in Syria while the newspapers 'Het Belang van Limburg' and 'Gazet van Antwerpen' argued the opposite: "The State Security confirmed the presence of Belgian jihadists in Syria".

The Flemish newspapers relied on a report by Reuters, dated July 31, citing statements from "several rebel commanders in the north-west Syria," according to which "Muslims in Great Britain, Belgium and the United States had joined the Free Syrian Army (SLA)". On July 13th, Reuters pointed out a flood "of thousands of assault rifles Belgian FN FAL was in the hands of the rebels".

In its annual reports, the Belgian State Security explains how and why she follows people attracted by fighting abroad: there was attention for Iraq, then, from 2010, to the movement towards Pakistan-Afghanistan border area; Finally, most recently, to new locations: "If the Afghan-Pakistan area, more than Iraq, was still popular in 2010 with the majority of volunteers for jihad", the Belgian State Security wrote in his latest report, "some of them began to plot their way to Yemen, Somalia and the Caucasus". And Syria now? Obviously. 'Where they are beaten, those who return and who actually participated in the fighting have gained knowledge on how to handle weapons, strategy and tactics of war,' noted the Belgian State Security...

GENEVA, (SANA) - Russia, China and Cuba voted on Friday against a United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) decision to extend the mandate of the , International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, while India, Uganda and Philippines abstained.

Syria's Representative at UNHRC, Faisal al-Hamwi described the decision as shameful, politicized and selective, and ''highly tolerant with al-Qaeda terrorists.''

In his statement on September 17 before the UNHRC in Geneva, al-Hamwi said that the International Commission of Inquiry report lacks accuracy and objectivity and disregards facts, especially the role of international and regional parties in stoking the crisis in Syria through media instigation, funding and training terrorists and al-Qaeda members to send them to Syria.

China Stresses Efforts to Reach Just, Peaceful Solution to Crisis in Syria 

 

Sep 27, 2012

NEW YORK, (SANA) - China urged on Wednesday the international community to continue exerting efforts for finding a solution to the crisis in Syria and to remain on the right track in this regard, warning against the repercussions of the crisis on the whole region.

The Chinese news agency XINHUA quoted Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi as saying in his speech at the Security Council's meeting on the situation in the Middle East that China as a permanent member of the Council faithfully fulfilled its obligations and acted as a positive force in the efforts to resolve the crisis in Syria in a just, peaceful and appropriate way.

He called for supporting the UN envoy to Syria Lakhaar Brahimi's efforts to play a neutral role and seriously implementing the Council's relevant resolutions, the six-point plan of former UN envoy Kofi Annan and Geneva agreement.

The Chinese Foreign Minister pointed out that the international community should stay on the right track through finding a political solution to the crisis.

"We urge all the Syrian sides to implement the Security Council's resolutions, Annan's plan and Geneva agreement and to stop violence, protect the civilians and prepare the circumstances for a Syrian-led political transition," Yang said.

He expressed his country's concern over not finding a solution to the current crisis in Syria so far, asserting that the concerns are not only over the future and destiny of Syria and its people but over realizing peace and stability in the entire Middle East.

Sep 27, 2012

PRAGUE, (SANA) – Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg stressed that the armed terrorist groups receive large amounts of money and supply from countries such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

The Czech News Agency quoted Schwarzenberg in an exclusive interview with The Cable as saying that his country doesn’t think that the western countries should arm these groups.

He said that things seemed to be more difficult in Syria because ”on the opposition side, there are many different groups, with different aims, financed by different countries."
