Sleep with Saudi Dogs, Wake Up with Wahhabi Terrorists

Early Dividends of the US Fake President’s Love Affair with Sheikh Salman, et al.

Terrorists have killed 12, and wounded dozens in Tehran attacks. The Islamic State (ISIL) has claimed responsibility.

Let’s hope Trump-Pence are removed from office soon, and the Saudi royal family are neutralized, before they can organize the next waves of Wahhabi terrorists to strike the homeland. And it’s only a matter of time before they would attempt to fulfill their satanic obligation…

[Prepared by an affiliated team of political scientists.]

  • Reports Saudi Arabia 01 – 23 are available from FIRE-EARTH PULSARS.

Background:

Iran’s revolutionary guard lashed out at Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, hours after 12 people were killed and 42 others were wounded in devastating attacks on two potent symbols in Tehran, the capital: Iran’s Parliament and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.”

In a statement, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps faulted both Saudi Arabia and the United States government: “The public opinion of the world, especially Iran, recognizes this terrorist attack — which took place a week after a joint meeting of the U.S. president and the head of one of the region’s backward governments, which constantly supports fundamentalist terrorists — as very significant,” clearly referring to Saudi Arabia. The statement also acknowledged the Islamic State’s claim of responsibility.”

Shortly after Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia, police in Bahrain, a tiny country ruled by Saudi-backed minority Sunni thugs, and  a member of the Gulf alliance, raided a prominent Shiite cleric’s hometown, arresting nearly 300 people in an assault that killed five protesters. “The tiny island-state hosting the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet and heavily supported by neighboring Saudi Arabia long has accused Iran of arming Shiite militants and seeking to foment unrest.”

“Tensions have also risen in Saudi Arabia’s oil-rich Eastern Province between [majority] Shiite activists and security forces there.”

“Hard-line royal elements who favor tougher action against Shiite protests may regard President Trump’s (comments) in Riyadh as permission to escalate,” Simon Henderson of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy wrote after the Bahrain raid. It “could have dangerous consequences for both Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.”

The ridiculous Qatar episode followed soon after.

The Qatar crisis: A ‘win-win’ for the United States?

“The underlying Saudi and Emirati grievances with Qatar have been lingering for a while, but the real catalyst of this week’s crisis is the new US administration,” wrote Chris Davidson, who teaches politics at Durham University in England.

“Notably, in the wake of the Arab spring, which witnessed the brief resurgence of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups, both Saudi Arabia and the UAE had identified such forces as potential existential threats to their own regimes, not only because the Brotherhood enjoyed much support amongst their own conservative populations, but also because it offered the region an alternative Islamic governance model that dispensed with the need for hereditary monarchies.”

“The Saudi and UAE-organized coup d’état in Egypt in 2013 was supposed to have put the Brotherhood and Qatar back in their places,” he wrote.

“Pundits have put forward a number of reasons as to why the escalation has happened right now.

“Many, for example, have pointed to a strengthening relationship between Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE, and their common goal of cutting off Qatari assistance to Hamas. Certainly, Qatar’s hosting of a Hamas conference last month did not go down well, and perhaps helps explain why — according to the leaked emails of the UAE’s ambassador to the U.S. — a recent high profile anti-Qatar symposium was staged by a major Washington-based, pro-Israel think tank.”

“Even if the Donald Trump team has clearly been trying to fleece Saudi Arabia out of its remaining assets by getting the kingdom to buy up weapons it can ill-afford, and even getting it to invest in U.S. physical infrastructure at a time when it really needs to be investing in its own infrastructure, there has nonetheless been a strong feeling in Riyadh that the new White House is a going to be a much firmer ally than the previous U.S. presidency.”

Iraqi PM Demands Withdrawal of Turkish Battalion Near Mosul

Posted by feww on December 5, 2015

Turkey protecting terrorists partners in Mosul?

Iraqi Prime Minister has condemned a Turkish military incursion into its northern territory, demanding their immediate withdrawal.

The incursion of “around one armed battalion [up to 300 troops] with [dozens] of tanks and cannons” into the Nineveh Province was a violation of Iraq’s sovereignty, said Mr Abadi in a statement released on December 5.

Turkish officials claim the troops were deployed on Friday (December 4) as part of a “routine exercise” to train Iraqi troops near the city of Mosul, which was captured by Daesh terrorists 16 months ago.

Iraq’s Foreign Ministry has described the troops movement into the northern Iraqi province as an “incursion,” rejecting the Turkish claim and asserting that the military operation was not coordinated with the federal government in Baghdad, said reports.

“The Turkish sources maintained that Turkey already had troops in Iraq’s autonomous Kurdistan region, and the United States and other countries involved in fighting IS there were aware it was moving some troops to the Mosul area,” said a report.

“U.S. officials in Washington said they were aware of Turkey’s move, but it was not coordinated with the anti-IS coalition operating in northern Iraq.”

Turkey stands accused of buying stolen oil from Daesh terrorists [aka, Islamic State, ISIL.] The large scale illegal oil trade is helping the terrorist to rake in about 3 million dollars per day.

Daesh kidnapped 49 staff from the Turkish consulate in Mosul after seizing control of the city in June 2014; however, they released everyone unharmed three months later, AFP reported.

ISIS Funded by 40 Countries, Including G20 Members —Putin

Posted by feww on November 18, 2015

Sent by a reader

US-led air campaign spared Islamic States’ most lucrative source of income for 14 months

Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced that the Islamic State terrorists are being financed from 40 countries, including a number of G20 countries. Putin has reportedly shared “intelligence” with other G20 members, but he has not publicly revealed the list of the nations that sponsor terrorism.

Additionally,  the terrorists have raked in about $50 million per month from “the illegal trade in oil and petroleum products.”

“I provided examples based on our data on the financing of different Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL, locally daesh) units by private individuals. This money, as we have established, comes from 40 countries and, there are some of the G20 members among them,” Putin told reporters.

In addition to the need to cut off the flow of funds to ISIS, Putin has also stressed the need to stop the lucrative oil trade by IS.

“I’ve shown our colleagues photos taken from space and from aircraft which clearly demonstrate the scale of the illegal trade in oil and petroleum products,” he said.

“The motorcade of refueling vehicles stretched for dozens of kilometers, so that from a height of 4,000 to 5,000 meters they stretch beyond the horizon.”

The Islamic State earns about $50 million a month in illegal crude oil sales from occupied oilfields in Iraq and Syria (an estimated 30,000 barrels per day in Syria and 20,000 in Iraq), “part of a well-run industry that U.S. diplomacy and airstrikes have so far failed to shut down, according to Iraqi intelligence and U.S. officials,” said a report.

“Oil sales—the extremists’ largest single source of continual income—are a key reason they have been able to maintain their rule over their self-declared ‘caliphate’ stretching across large parts of Syria and Iraq. With the funds to rebuild infrastructure and provide the largesse that shore up its fighters’ loyalty, it has been able to withstand ground fighting against its opponents and more than a year of bombardment in the U.S.-led air campaign.”

Why have the U.S. military & Co. spared the Islamic States’ most important source of income?

Wondering when the taxpayers would start asking the same question, the US warplanes reportedly targeted the oil trucks on Monday (Nov. 16, 2015), for the first time since the Syria air campaign began about 14 months ago.

“United States warplanes for the first time attacked hundreds of trucks on Monday that the extremist group has been using to smuggle the crude oil it has been producing in Syria, American officials said,” according to a report.

“According to an initial assessment, 116 trucks were destroyed in the attack, which took place near Deir al-Zour, an area in eastern Syria that is controlled by the Islamic State.”

19 Women Executed in Mosul, Iraq for Resisting ISIL ‘Sexual Jihad’

Posted by feww on October 7, 2015

Iraq Government Failing to Protect Citizens Against ISIL Terrorism

The Islamic State has executed 19 women in the Iraqi city of Mosul for their refusal to participate in the practice of sexual jihad, a spokesperson for the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) has told Iraqi News.

In 2014, ISIL [Islamic State, IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL, and locally known as daesh] officially admitted to running a slave market for Yazidi women and children in their English language magazine Dabiq, said reports.

About 500 people have been violently killed in Iraq in the last week alone, most of them in summary executions carried out by ISIL terrorists.

More than 12,500 people have been killed and up to twice as many wounded in Iraq so far this year, according to reports.

Saudi-led Coalition Using Same Cluster Munition in Yemen as ISIS Fired in Syria

Posted by feww on May 31, 2015

Saudi Arabia first used cluster bombs on Houthis in 2009: HRW

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has released new evidence contending the Saudi-led coalition has been dropping  internationally-banned cluster bombs on Yemenis population.

Four civilians, including a young boy, were wounded on April 29 in Baqim, a village near the Saudi border, when unexploded submunitions detonated after local residents picked them up. HRW identified the weapon as a type of ground-fired cluster munition containing “ZP-39” submunitions, which has a distinctive red ribbon.

  • The cluster munition dropped by Saudi-led coalition aircraft  near al-Amar was the CBU-105 Sensor Fuzed Weapon.
  • In addition, photographs and information from local residents indicate that Saudi-led coalition aircraft dropped a third type of cluster munition, bombs containing BLU-97 submunitions, in at least two attacks in Saada governorate on May 23.

“Human Rights Watch … has documented that Islamic State forces (also known as ISIS) fired the same weapon, whose submunition was marked ‘ZP-39,’ in northern Syria in September 2014,” said the report.

The HRW report is posted online, here.

Terrorists Fed by Saudi Royals’ Hatred for Shia Muslims

Meantime, the Saudi division of the Islamic State terrorists group has called on all jihadist to cleanse the Arabian Peninsula of Shia Muslims in an audio recording, said a US-based ISIS monitoring group, SITE.

A representative of Najd Province, a division of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/DAESH) has called on Sunni Saudi youths to join the group, fend off the “Shia threat” and “purify the land” of the “disbelievers and apostates,” said the report.

The terrorist group has reportedly claimed responsibility for the May-22 suicide bombing of a Shi’ite mosque in the town of al-Qadeeh, Qatif province, which killed at least 21 people and wounded more than 50 other worshipers.

The local ISIS terrorists have also claimed responsibility for bombing another Shi’ite mosque in the Saudi port city of Dammam on Friday, May 29, 2015.

A suicide bomber, reportedly disguised as a woman, blew himself up in the parking lot of the mosque during Friday prayers, killing at least four people.

Iraq Minorities Face ‘Eradication’ —Report

Posted by feww on February 27, 2015

Iraqi minorities face existential threat

Islamic State terrorists (ISIS) are trying to eradicate minority groups from large parts of Iraq, warns Minority Rights Group International in a report.

The report details war crimes perpetrated by ISIS against Iraq’s Christian, Kaka’i, Shabak, Turkmen and Yazidi populations, including summary executions, abductions, rape and other abuses.

Iraqi minorities face an existential threat, according to the Institute of International Law and Human Rights (IILHR), one of the groups that helped with the report.

“While military action against ISIS dominates the headlines, to date there has been no serious effort to bring the perpetrators of crimes against minorities to justice,” says  Director of IILHR. “Minorities were first caught by wholesale discrimination and violence well before the arrival of ISIS. Now they face a new threat to their existence from ISIS attacks.”

Key Findings

  • Since June 2014, the rapid spread of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and al Sham) forces across northern Iraq has triggered a wave of displacement, with more than 2 million people uprooted. Ethnic and religious minorities have been particularly targeted, including Christians, Kaka’i, Shabak, Turkmen and Yezidis, with thousands killed and many more injured or abducted.
  • Summary executions, forced conversion, rape, sexual enslavement, the destruction of places of worship, the abduction of children, the looting of property and other severe human rights abuses and crimes under international law have been committed repeatedly by ISIS. While minorities have long been vulnerable to attacks by extremists, this violence appears to be part of a systematic strategy to remove these communities permanently from areas where they have lived for centuries.
  • The current situation for the millions of displaced persons in Iraq, many of whom belong to minority groups, is characterized by deteriorating humanitarian conditions in camps, abandoned buildings and informal settlements. The lack of an effective response from the government, combined with limited resources from international agencies, has left many without adequate food, water, health care, shelter and other necessities, with women and children especially vulnerable.

Global Response to Violence ‘Shameful’ —Amnesty

Posted by feww on February 26, 2015

2014 a “catastrophic” year for millions of people around the world

World governments failed to protect civilians against violence perpetrated by states and armed groups, said Amnesty International, calling the global response “shameful and ineffective.”

The “human rights watchdog” called 2014 a “catastrophic” year for millions of people around the world in its 424-page annual report.

“As people suffered an escalation in barbarous attacks and repression, the international community has been found wanting,” said Amnesty secretary general.

Millions of civilians suffered horrific violence and human rights violations from Syria to Ukraine, Gaza to Nigeria, while the number of displaced people globally  exceeded 50 million last year, for the first time since the end of World War II, said the report.

It criticized the European Union’s response to the world’s worst refugee crisis in Syria. Of the more than 4 million Syrian refugees displaced by conflict only 150,000 were living in EU states as of December 2014.

“It is abhorrent to see how wealthy countries’ efforts to keep people out take precedence over their efforts to keep people alive,” said the secretary general, adding that the United Nations Security Council had “miserably failed” to protect civilians.

Armed groups committed abuses in at least 35 countries—out of 160 surveyed—in 2014, aid the report, raising particular concern about the rise of the Islamic State (formerly ISIL) terrorist group.

The Islamic State terrorists committed wide-scale war crimes, said the report, including mass summary killings and abductions that targeted minorities, and sexual abuse of women and girls.

Massive volumes of arms were delivered to Iraq, Israel, Russia, South Sudan and Syria in 2014, despite the likelihood of these weapons being used against civilians, it said.

“Violent attacks on grounds of religious and ethnic identity continued on a significant scale. The failure of governments to address rising religious and ethnic intolerance was evident. The Myanmar and Sri Lankan governments failed to address ongoing incitement to violence based on national, racial and religious hatred by Buddhist nationalist groups despite violent incidents.
The government of Myanmar also failed to allow equal access to full citizenship to Rohingyas. In Pakistan, Shi’a Muslims were killed in attacks by armed groups; Ahmadis and Christians were also targeted. Sri Lanka also saw violence against Muslims and Christians carried out by armed groups, and police failed to protect them or to investigate incidents.”

Director of Amnesty International UK said Britain “is going in the wrong direction on rights, protections and fairness.”

She asserted the importance of public safety, but said it should not be achieved at the cost of fundamental civil liberties.

“The UK talks the talk on the global stage on human rights but this year’s summary shows they need to tend to their own garden,” she said.

“Twice this year GCHQ spies have been rumbled breaking the law. We should be concerned about waking up in a surveillance state, without having a proper public debate about it first.”

Amnesty also urged the permanent members of the UN Security Council Britain, China, France, Russia and the US, also known as the Permanent Five, to discard their veto power in cases where atrocities are being committed.

The outlook for 2015 was “bleak,” the group said.

Iraq Violence: 1,468 killed, thousands wounded

According to Iraq Body Count, at least 1,468 civilians were killed in Iraq in November. The UN casualty figures for the month are 1,232 killed and 2,434 wounded. (UN Figures exclude the casualty toll in Anbar province.)

“With nearly 12,000 [15,914 according to IBC] people killed and nearly 22,000 injured since the beginning of 2014, Iraqis continue to be subjected to the unspeakable horrors of killing, maiming, reign of terror, displacement, extreme forms of intolerance and poverty,” said the UN envoy and UNAMI chief in a statement.

“I take this opportunity to go on encouraging Iraq’s political, religious and social leaders to act decisively to rise above their differences in order to resolve the pending political, social and economic problems, and restore confidence among Iraq’s communities, more particularly its disaffected groups, as part of consolidating the democratic process,” he said.

Nearly 2,000 civilians killed or found dead in Iraq last month

At least 1,956 civilians were killed or found dead in Iraq last month, according to Iraq Body count.

The September massacre brings the total number of civilians killed in violence so far this year to at least 12,618, according to Iraq Body Count.

The UN Mission in Baghdad said at least 1,119 people have died in violence in September, AP reported.  The figure, however, does not include massacres carried out in areas controlled by the Islamic State terrorists, for example, the western Anbar province and  parts of northern Iraq.

‘Ethnic Cleansing’ and Mass Displacement

Reports from Iraq “reveal acts of inhumanity on an unimaginable scale,” said the UN Human Rights Deputy Commissioner, in August.

The terrorists that run the so-called “Islamic State,” formerly known as ISIS/ISIL, and their allied Sunni insurgents  have taken control of large parts of northern and western Iraq, committing “systematic and intentional attacks on civilians” that include targeted killings, forced conversions, slavery, sexual abuse, and the besieging of entire communities.

“Thousands of people have been killed, the majority of them civilians, and more than a million others have been forced to flee their homes,” said the report.

There is “strong evidence” that international human rights and humanitarian law is being seriously violated in areas under IS control, said the UN Human Rights Commission.

“Christian, Yazidi, Turkmen, Shabak, Kaka’i, Sabeans and Shia communities had ‘all been targeted through particularly brutal persecution’ and that IS had ‘ruthlessly carried out what may amount to ethnic and religious cleansing,’” said the report.

“Many have been killed directly; others have been besieged and deprived of food, water or medication, said the UN Deputy Human Rights Commissioner.

“Hundreds of thousands of civilians from these communities have fled to remote and desolate locations where unconfirmed reports indicate that scores of children, elderly people and people with disabilities have been dying as a result of exhaustion and deprivation.”

Sex Slaves

At least 2,250 Yazidi women and children are being held hostage by IS terrorists. Most of the female hostages have been allotted as slaves to IS fighters, said the report.

Islamic State seizes more than 100 Kurdish villages in Syria

About 70,000 Syrian Kurds, fearing genocide by the advancing Islamic State terrorists, have fled into Turkey since Friday.

The Islamic State terrorists have seized more than 100 villages near the Turkish border and advanced on the frontier town of Kobani, said Reuters.

“A Kurdish politician from Turkey who visited Kobani on Saturday said locals had told him that Islamic State fighters were beheading people as they went from village to village.”

“Rather than a war this is a genocide operation … They are going into the villages and cutting the heads of people and showing them to the villagers,” a deputy for Turkey’s pro-Kurdish HDP told Reuters.

“Kobani is facing the fiercest and most barbaric attack in its history,” the head of Syria’s Kurdish Democratic Union told AP.

At least eleven Kurdish civilians, including young boys, have been executed in the villages near Kobani, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

 ‘Acts of inhumanity on an unimaginable scale’ perpetrated in Iraq —UN

About 1,600 civilians were killed and at least 1,400 others wounded last month, according to figures provided by Iraq Body Count and UN’s mission to the country.

Between January and August 2014, at least 10,000 people have been killed and as many wounded in Iraq.

Islamic State Terrorists

However, the figures do not include hundreds of Yazidis murdered by the IS terrorists.

“Last week, the UN said it had received reports of at least 650 male inmates of Badouch Prison in Mosul being shot dead by IS militants on 10 July. Witnesses and survivors said inmates claiming to be Sunni were taken away, while Shia and members of other religious or ethnic communities were ordered into ditches and killed, BBC reported.
