Speech of Muammar Al Gaddafi at the United Nations:
Ask 41 U.S. senators to stand strong and support diplomacy over war
As I write this, the U.S. Senate is just eight votes shy of a veto-proof bill that could send the U.S. to war over Iran.
This AIPAC-backed bill would torpedo ongoing diplomatic efforts and open the way to military action and further draconian sanctions. The results could be disastrous for everyone.
The good news is that outrage is growing, and 21 senators have come out against pro-war bill S.1881. But there is a chance it could reach a veto-proof majority. Unless we act now, the 20 senators who have not signed yet could succumb to the march to war. Can you sign this petition to tell them to stand strong ?

This legislation is being pushed by Israel lobby groups who want a pretext for Israel to take military action against Iran. Remarkably, it would pre-commit the United States to military involvement should Israel attack.
If we get at least 15,000 to sign this petition, we’ll take out ads in a major political news outlet to show that American Jews and our allies oppose the bill, and support diplomacy over war.

An interim deal brokered by the U.N. Security Council has already begun implementation, with Iran taking steps to roll back its nuclear program in exchange for limited sanctions relief.
But S.1881 (the "Nuclear Weapon-Free Iran Act of 2013") has the support of 59 of 60 co-sponsors needed for it to pass.

War on Iran
March 7, 2012 - AIPAC pushing for war with Iran? http://rt.com/usa/aipac-war-iran-israel-917/

The British Times published an article in January 2012 that said Saudi Arabia and Qatar joined in a covert deal to fund weapons acquisitions by the Syrian opposition to topple the regime of Bashar Assad. A secret accord between the governments of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the Syrian opposition was reached after the Arab League of Nations foreign ministers Cairo meeting in January 2012. A representative of the Syria opposition told the British newspaper that Saudi Arabia offered any assistance. He added Turkey also took an active part in supporting the opposition by delivering arms across the Syria-Turkey border.
Mehmet Ali Ediboglu, a deputy from the province of Hatay, said to a United Arab Emirates outlet the National there were great quantities of Turkey-made fire arms in Syria. Ediboglu was part of the Turkish Republican People's Party team coming to Syria in September 2011. The Syrian officials showed the delegation truckloads of weapons unloaded in deserted buffer zone between Syrian and Turkish checkpoints. According to the Turkish deputy’s interview the weapons were delivered by the Muslim Brothers.
Pro-Israeli Debka internet-outlet close to the Israeli Intelligence Mossad reported as far back as August 2011 that NATO delivered shoulder-fired air defense systems, anti-tank weapons, grenade launchers and heavy machine guns to the opposition forces across the territory of Turkey. “Syrian rebels have been receiving training inside Turkey” Debka reported. NATO and the USA organized a campaign to recruit thousands of Muslim volunteers from different countries to boost the might of Syrian “rebels”. The Turkish army provided them with training and safe passage across the Turkey-Syrian border.
Syria now views Saudi Arabia as its number one enemy and accuses it of trying to destroy the country by arming jihadists and other rebels fighting to oust President Bashar al-Assad.
January 27, 2012 - Gulf States to arm Syrian opposition?
In 2012 Qatar bought 200 “Leopard 2″ battle tanks and the German government responded positively to the Saudis request to buy up to 270 of the Leopard 2 tanks. In a new request, the sheikhs petitioned the German government for its approval of the purchase of a few hundred “Boxer” armed transport vehicles.

'IDF intelligence chief: Israel’s next war will see heavy casualties'
In farewell meeting at the Knesset, Gen. Amos Yadlin says next conflict will hit Israel far harder than recent wars in Lebanon and Gaza – and hints for first the time at Israeli involvement in a 2007 strike on a nuclear plant in Syria...
In a final meeting at the Knesset, outgoing Military Intelligence chief Amos Yadlin warned on Tuesday that Israel’s next war would be fought on several fronts – causing far heavier damage and casualties than other recent conflicts. A new war would be far deadlier than Israel’s last two, relatively short, conficts in Lebanon in 2006 and Gaza in 2008-9. Syria, particularly, posed a greated military obstacle to Israel than at any time in the past three decades, Yadlin said, having amassed advanced Russian-built antiaircraft missiles that seriously limited the operational freedom of the Israel Air Force. Yadlin also hinted at Israel’s involvement in attacking a Syrian nuclear facility in September 2007. That strike has been widely attributed to Israel, but the government has never officially taken responsibility for the operation. The veteran soldier, who turns 60 next year, told the committee that during his position as MI chief he had contended with two enemy nuclear programs – apparently a reference to Iran and Syria. Yadlin also warned of a growing threat from the Iranian nuclear program, saying Iran now had enough highly enriched uranium to build a bomb.

Defense Minister: Syria is going ahead in its war against Terrorism
May 8, 2013
Deputy Commander-in-Cheif of the Army and armed forces, Minister of Defense Fahd Jasem al-Freij on Wednesday paid a field visit to one of the air bases, accompanied by a number of the General Command officers, where he met the military brave pilots.
"It became crystal clear to anyone that targeting Syria was because of its basic role in the resistance axis and in confronting the US-Zionist project in the region," al-Freij said, adding that the Israeli latest aggression proves the volume of involvement in the events in Syria as a desperate attempt to raise the moral of the armed terrorist groups who receive heavy strikes by the Syrian army.
He affirmed that Syria is going ahead in its war against terrorism and its supporters, adding "the armed forces are in full readiness to deter all forms of aggression.
Defense Minister appreciated the brave, high moral spirits the Syrian soldiers and pilots are enjoying.
Aldous Huxley: War shatters precarious crust of civilization, precipitates vast numbers of human beings into abyss of misery and frenzied diabolism
At the San Francisco Conference the only problems discussed were problems of power. The basic problem of mankind – the problem of getting enough to eat – was relegated to an obscure international committee on agriculture. And yet it is surely obvious that if genuine international agreement is ever to be reached and preserved, it must be an agreement with regard to problems which, first, are of vital interests to the masses of humanity and which, second, are capable of solution without resort to war or the threat of war.
The problems of power are primarily the concern of the ruling few, and the nature of power is essentially expansive, so that there is not the least prospect of power problems being solved when one expanding system collides with another expanding system, except by means of organized, scientific violence or war. But war on the modern scale shatters the thin, precarious crust of civilization and precipitates vast numbers of human beings into an abyss of misery and slow death, of moral apathy or positive and frenzied diabolism. If politicians were sincere in their loudly expressed desire for peace, they would do all they could to by-pass the absolutely insoluble problems of power by concentrating all their attention, during international conferences and diplomatic discussion, on the one great problem which every member of the human race is concerned to solve — the one great problem which not only does not require military violence for its solution, but which, for the world at large, is wholly insoluble so long as the old games of militarism and power politics continue to be played. The first item on the agenda of every meeting between the representatives of the various nations should be: How are all men women and children to get enough to eat?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his friend President Barack Obama.
On November 15, 2010, U.S. President Barack Obama praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for urging his cabinet to accept a U.S. proposal to extend a freeze on West Bank settlement building for 90 days. Under the plan, Washington would block UN resolutions critical of Israel, and supply Israel with fighter jets worth $3 billion. The US government also promised Israel that after the 90-day moratorium, they would not seek an extension, and settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (all of which is illegal under international law) could continue unabated. At the beginning of the month of February 2011, more than 100 nations voted for a U.N. resolution that would have condemned illegal Israeli settlements and halted any new construction. The United States vetoed it.
On February 19, 2011, Israel said it was 'deeply grateful to the United States' after it vetoed a United Nations resolution put forward by the Palestinian leadership condemning Israeli settlement activity. On Oct 27, 2011, Israeli jetfighters engaged in aerial bombing of the Palestinian city of Khan Yunes in the Gaza Strip.Israel plans now to build unspecified thousands of new settler units in the strip of land known as E1 around Al Quds...
Israel's Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman who, for tactical political reasons, recently announced that he withdrawned temporarily, proposes since 2001, to establish four townships in the occupied West Bank, hermetically sealed, which would be grouped the Palestinians.
More recently he has improved his plan.
He sees it as a solution for the Palestinian citizens of Israel, who are more than one million, to move the vast majority of the group in tightly closed, self-administered areas.
Thus would arise a State ethnically homogeneous from the Mediterranean Sea until the Jordan, sheltering in its midst Palestinian “Bantustans”.
Lieberman, besides his ministerial duties, is the leader of Israel Beteinou (Israel Our Home), a political party openly racist and Arabophobia.
Germany last year ordered a small fleet of Israeli Heron spy drones designed to provide real-time images above a battlefield. That has brought German jet pilots to coastal Ein Shemer air base for accelerated retraining on the unmanned propeller planes, already daubed with their flag and Iron Cross emblem. “It’s for the need of the ground troops, for our own protection, like convoy protection,” said a Luftwaffe (airforce) major, who formerly flew a Tornado fighter-bomber on Afghan reconnaissance missions and could not be named due to military secrecy.
Israel is a pioneer of combat drones, having deployed them in Lebanon in the Palestinian territories. Heron’s manufacturer, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), says it is also used by Canadian, French and Australian forces in Afghanistan. On December 12, 2012, Germany has expelled four employees of the Syrian embassy in Berlin in a diplomatic move to put pressure on the regime of President Bashar Assad. German MPs of the lower house of parliament voted 461-86 on Friday, December 14, 2012, to approve the deployment of two Patriot missile batteries and 400 troops in Turkey along the Syrian border, Reuters reported.
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu recently expressed Turkey’s desire for a leading role in a Greater Middle East, while also claiming that Turkey’s borders are NATO’s borders.
On October, 26th 2011, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed the media during a news conference after a meeting at the Chancellery in Berlin, Germany. Rasmussen said the alliance wanted to confirm a decision to end its operations in Libya by Oct. 31. Rasmussen: 'The U.N.’s resolution adopted earlier in the day reflects that we have fully accomplished our mandate to protect the civilian population of Libya'.

Observing that a "new Middle East is about to be born," Turkish foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu recently stated before the Turkish parliament that "we will be the owner, pioneer and the servant of this new Middle East."
In reality, the Turkish government wants, as was the case under the Ottoman empire, to dominate Syria and the Middle East regio and it hopes to realize its dream with the support of NATO.
For several years, he CIA, the American State Department and the Pentagon are involved, working with NATO’s Turkey and the kleptocrats in Saudi Arabia to overthrow the Syrian government.
C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey and weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition, antitank weapons and explosives for terrorist attacks are being smuggled by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries from Turkey to Syria.

NATO preparing to give Turkey Patriot missiles
ANKARA: Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Wednesday that NATO is preparing to give Turkey Patriot missiles for deployment along the Turkish-Syrian border, local newspaper Today’s Zaman reported on its website.
Davutoglu made the remarks in Brussels following earlier statements by some other Turkish officials that Turkey is in talks with the United States and NATO over the deployment of Patriot missiles along its border with Syria.
Turkey and the United States are considering deploying missiles in the southern Turkish province of Kilis, according to the report.
In the past, Turkey requested the deployment of Patriot missile defense systems on its territory twice in the context of wars in Iraq, respectively in the early 1990s and the 2000s.
President Obama, was the 2009 winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples".
As a reminder: In 2003 Turkey was being bitterly criticized in the US for 'failing to allow us combat troops to use Turkey as a launching pad to open a second front in northern Iraq'.

'US envoy reveals secret assistance offer to Turkey in PKK fight'
The US ambassador to Turkey has revealed that Washington secretly offered Ankara to have an “anti-bin Laden” type of joint operation against a number of military leaders of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK)...
On Tuesday, Francis Ricciardone revealed to Turkish journalists that the US had offered Turkey its military technology to hunt down the PKK leaders.
However, the Turkish government turned down the offer, saying it would continue battling with the PKK “on the basis of its laws and experiences.”
The PKK has been fighting for an autonomous Kurdish region inside Turkey since the 1980s.
Ankara has carried out several military operations against the PKK in Iraq’s Kurdistan region.
Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan also confirmed on October 16 that he had rejected the offer on a rather technical basis.
Erdogan recalled the US operation near the Pakistani capital Islamabad in May 2011 that led to the death of Osama bin Laden.
“Bin Laden was caught in a house,” said the Turkish premier, adding, “But the struggle here is in mountainous geography.”
This is reportedly the second disclosed secret offer of assistance by the US.

'Turkish policeman, eight PKK members killed in clashes'
At least nine people, including one policeman, have been killed in clashes between police and the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militants in Turkey’s southeastern province of Sirnak...
Heavy fighting erupted after PKK members attacked the building of Sirnak provincial government, a police department and a police checkpoint with automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades on Sunday.
Law enforcement agents have cordoned off the area and launched manhunt operations to arrest PKK members involved in the incident.
Meanwhile, Turkish troops backed by jets, launched an offensive against the Kurdish rebels in Sirnak.
Clashes between Turkish troops and PKK fighters have intensified in recent months.
Six Turkish soldiers and three PKK members were killed in overnight clashes along a highway in the remote province of Hakkari bordering Iraq and Iran.
PKK has been fighting for an autonomous Kurdish region inside Turkey since the 1980s. The conflict has left tens of thousands of people dead.
ISTANBUL, Oct. 9 2012 (Xinhua) - Turkey and Syria move closer than ever to the verge of war after Syria's latest mortar shelling killed five Turkish civilians.
The Turkey Parliament has authorized a war mandate last week, enabling further cross-border military action against Syria.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan talked about the war twice within a week, saying that Turkey was not far away from war and called on his people to be prepared.
Turkey and Syria have been exchanging cross-border artillery fire for almost a week. In this sense, Turkey has already started fighting.
U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said last Saturday that conflict between Turkey and Syria may escalate and spread to neighboring countries.
However, many Turkish analysts worry that it would be great mistake for Turkey to get involved in a war with Syria, which could bring serious consequences to this country.
"If Turkey starts war with Syria, it would be detrimental for both countries. Turkey's social stability, economic development and democratization process would all be badly affected," Aykan Erdemir, a Turkish MP from the opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), told Xinhua.

U.S. tactical nuclear weapons in Turkey
Turkey is one of five European nations that continue to house U.S. tactical nuclear weapons allocated for NATO.
Some months ago, Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists and 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.
On October 4, 2012, Adm. George Stavridis, the commander of US European Command (USEUCOM) and NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), met with Chief of General Staff Gen. Necdet Ozel in Ankara. The meeting took place at General Staff headquarters but was only announced to the public in a statement released by the General Staff some days later. The talks were closed to the press and the statement did not elaborate on what Stavridis and Ozel discussed. It proved once again that the Turkish government is not only arming Syrian terrorists but organizes with its NATO allies (with Israel in the background) also a real war against Syria.
