It’s Not Just The Israelis Who Murder Kids And Steal Their Land

The ‘good effects’ of bombing a village market in Afghanistan
For very many years, the Americans and Europeans have been committing atrocities which could be described as ‘Nazi-style’, or ‘Israeli-style’.
From The Guardian 16 December 2008:
“The first bomb hit a large group of children who had run on ahead of the main procession.
“It killed most of them instantly.
“A few minutes later, the plane returned and dropped another bomb, right in the centre of the group.
“This time the victims were almost all women…
“I was still holding my grandson’s hand but the rest of him was gone…”
(‘I was still holding my grandson’s hand – the rest was gone’)

This happened in an area called Kamala in Afghanistan.
In Afghanistan, around 750 civilians have died in Nato and US air strikes this year.
The number of innocent people killed this way has almost doubled from last year, and tripled from the year before that.
The British started it.
Ninety-three years of bombing the Arabs
In 1911, the Italians bombed Libyan civilians from the air.
In 1912 the French began bombing Moroccan civilians from the air.
In 1913 the Spanish began bombing Moroccan villagers from the air.
They later used poison gas.
In 1915 the British began the aerial bombardment of Pathan villages on India’s North-West Frontier.
In 1919 the British bombed Afghan civilians from the air.
The British aerial bombardment of Dacca killed 600.
Over 90 years of terrorist activity by western countries.
Killing kids.

The world’s first air bombardment took place on 1 November 1911, when an Italian pilot named Giulio Gavotti dropped four hand grenades on Turkish troops camped in Libya.
(Axis of Evel Knievel: November 1)
Italy stole Libya from the Turkish Ottoman Empire in order to make it a colony.
For twenty years, the Libyans fought the Italians, in the hope of gaining their freedom.
In 1912, French pilots dropped bombs in Morocco.
In 1913, Serbs in French-built planes bombed Turkish forces during the First Balkan War.

In 2005, in Iraq, US Marines reportedly massacred two dozen civilians in the town of Haditha.
Among the dead were six children under the age of fourteen as well as an elderly man shot to death in his wheelchair.
Nine-year-old Eman Waleed, who lived in the first house attacked by the US, described the events to Time magazine:
First, they went into my father’s room, where he was reading the Koran and we heard shots. . . .
I couldn’t see (the Marines’) faces very well—only their guns sticking into the doorway.
I watched them shoot my grandfather, first in the chest and then in the head. Then they killed my granny.. . .
We were lying there, bleeding, and it hurt so much.

U.S. Shifted Pakistan Terror Leaders To Afghanistan

November 23, 2009

PDRTJS_settings_312520_post_11382 = { “id” : “312520”, “unique_id” : “wp-post-11382”, “title” : “U.S.+Shifted+Pakistan+Terror+Leaders+To+Afghanistan”, “item_id” : “_post_11382”, “permalink” : “http%3A%2F%2Fpakalert.wordpress.com%2F2009%2F11%2F22%2Fu-s-shifted-pakistan-terror-leaders-to-afghanistan%2F” }

LAHORE: General (retd) Mirza Aslam Beg has alleged that the US has shifted Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) chief Hakimullah Mehsud and the other Taliban leadership to Afghanistan.
In an interview, Aslam Beg said when the Pakistan Army started the operation in South Waziristan, a helicopter flew from the Bagram Airbase in Afghanistan and shifted Hakimullah Mehsud and other militants to Afghanistan.
He said Hakimullah Mehsud and other militant commanders were present in Afghanistan. He alleged that the US was backing the militants fighting against the Pakistan Army in South Waziristan Agency.
He said that the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) of India wanted to detach the tribal areas from Pakistan but it did not succeed in its designs. About the current wave of terrorism in the country, especially in Peshawar, he said these incidents could be a reaction to the Waziristan operation but possibilities of the US and other foreign actors’ involvement could not be ruled out.
Responding to a question about the operation Rah-e-Nijat, he said the people were talking about the difficulties in the operation and the possibility that the Army could be trapped in the area but due to an effective strategy, the military succeeded in clearing the area of the militants within a month and the remaining task would be completed soon.
About the US efforts in Afghanistan, he said the US could neither succeed in Afghanistan nor could get a safe exit from the Afghan soil until it corrected its attitude with the Pakistan Army. Aslam Beg said only the Pakistan Army and the Taliban could give a safe exit to the US from Afghanistan. About the military action in Balochistan, he said there was no need for a military operation in the province.
TTP leaders evacuated by mysterious airlifts – Akhtar Jamal
Islamabad—Mysterious airlifting of some Taliban elements from areas of Pakistan-Afghanistan border linking Waziristan have been reported by several sources and fears are growing that anti-Pakistan TTP terrorists are also being rescued by their “foreign allies” from across the border.
The unexplained movements of “un-marked” helicopters and aircraft have been reported since last few days along Pak-Afghan border and one source claimed that they were being transported to the Eastern Afghanistan.
Some experts believe that secret allies of friendly-Talibans took the action in order to secure the militants from an assault in South Waziristan by Pakistani Armed Forces while others believe the secret evacuation was part of a larger deal between some Western States and “good Taliban.”
The airlifting and evacuation of TTP leaders from South Waziristan coincided with a report by foreign news media or a similar mysterious evacuation of “militants” from South Afghanistan to North Afghanistan.
An Iranian news site on October 18 reported that “British Army has been relocating Taliban insurgents from southern Afghanistan to the north by providing transportation means.” Quoting diplomats who spoke on condition of anonymity, the Iranian site claimed that insurgents are being airlifted from the southern province of Helmand to the north amid increasing violence in the northern parts of the country.
The PressTV.com also claimed that “the aircraft used for the transfer have been identified as British Chinook helicopters.”
The report suggested that the secret operation was being launched under the supervision of Afghan Interior Minister Mohammad Hanif Atmar, who “was still operating under the British guidance.”
Last week Afghanistan’s Pajhwok news agency reported that “US ambassador scotched speculation that his country was helping terrorists in the north, saying America had nothing to do with the air-dropping of armed men from helicopters in Samangan, Baghlan and Kunduz provinces.” At an October 11 news conference in Kabul, President Hamid Karzai had himself claimed that “some unidentified helicopters dropped armed men in the northern provinces at night.”
According to Pajhowk news report President Karzai revealed “the government had been receiving evidence of the air-dropping of gunmen from mysterious helicopters in the provinces over the last five months.”
A comprehensive investigation is underway to determine which country the helicopters belong to; why armed men are being infiltrated into the region; and whether increasing insecurity in the north is linked to it.

Iran Begins Large-Scale War Games To Defend Nuclear Sites

November 23, 2009
Iran has begun five days of large-scale war games to simulate attacks on its nuclear sites, officials said, warning it will retaliate if provoked.
The head of Iran’s air defence said the aim of the exercises was to thwart aerial reconnaissance and air attacks.
Another official warned Tehran would retaliate with a missile strike on Tel Aviv, if it was attacked by Israel.
Iran is under intense pressure over its nuclear programme, which critics say is intended to produce nuclear weapons.

The US and Israel have not ruled out the prospect of a military attack to prevent Iran developing nuclear bombs. Tehran insists its programme is peaceful.
IRAN’S NUCLEAR SITES

Iran insists that all its nuclear facilities are for energy, not military purposes
Bushehr: Nuclear power plant
Isfahan: Uranium conversion plant
Natanz: Uranium enrichment plant, 4,592 working centrifuges, with 3,716 more installed
Second enrichment plant: Existence revealed to IAEA in Sept 2009. Separate reports say it is near Qom, and not yet operational
Arak: Heavy water plant
Annihilation warning
The head of Iran’s air defence, Brig Gen Ahmad Mighani, told state media the aim of the war games, which will cover an area of 600,000 sq km (230,000 sq miles), was “to display Iran’s combat readiness and military potentials.
“Due to the threats against our nuclear facilities it is our duty to defend our nation’s vital facilities,” he said.
Meanwhile, Mojhtaba Zolnoor, an aide to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, warned Iran would respond to any Israeli attack.
“If the enemy attacks Iran, our missiles will strike Tel Aviv,” he was quoted as saying by the official Irna news agency.
The commander of the elite Revolutionary Guards’ air force wing said Iran’s air defence forces would “annihilate” Israeli warplanes if they attacked.
“Their [Israeli] F-15 and F-16 fighters will be trapped by our air defence forces and will be annihilated,” Amir Ali Hajizadeh told Iran’s Fars news agency.
“Even if their planes escape and land at the bases from which they took off, their bases will be struck by our destructive surface-to-surface missiles.”
Deal in doubt
The exercises come as the UN Security Council’s permanent members – Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States – plus Germany, urge Tehran to reconsider its rejection of a proposal that would see some of its nuclear material being enriched outside Iran and returned as fuel rods.
The deal – brokered by the UN’s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency – envisages Iran sending about 70% of its low-enriched uranium to Russia and France, where it would be processed into fuel rods for a research reactor in Tehran.
Such a process would prevent Iran enriching uranium to the degree necessary to make a bomb, the UN says.
But Iran has rejected a key part of the deal, seeking further guarantees.
The UN Security Council has called on Iran to stop uranium enrichment and has approved three rounds of sanctions – covering trade in nuclear material, as well as financial and travel restrictions.

Israel may attack Iran after December

November 23, 2009
Israel is making preparations to carry out military attacks in Iran after December, a French magazine reported overnight Wednesday.

According to the report in Le Canard Enchainé quoted by Israel Radio, Jerusalem has already ordered high-quality combat rations from a French food manufacturer for soldiers serving in elite units and has also asked reservists of these units staying abroad to return to Israel.
The magazine further reported that in a recent visit to France, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi told his French counterpart Jean-Louis Georgelin that Israel was not planning to bomb Iran, but might send elite troops to conduct activities on the ground there.
These, according to the magazine, could involve the sabotage of nuclear facilities as well as assassinations of top Iranian nuclear scientists.
Israel has recently toned down rhetoric against Iran so as not to hinder US diplomatic efforts for Iranian transparency regarding its nuclear program, but neither Jerusalem nor Washington have so far made any unequivocal statements to the effect that the military option against Iran was no longer being considered.
Israel has maintained that it has the military capability to tackle Iran on its own if sanctions against the Islamic Republic prove ineffective.
Israel accuses Iran of seeking to acquire nuclear weapons. Teheran maintains that its nuclear program is peaceful.
The Jerusalem Post could not confirm Le Canard Enchainé’s report.

Wald is another apparent Jewish Zionist in attendance at a Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) warmonger event as WINEP is a spin-off of the pro-Israel lobby (AIPAC) which has been pushing for war with Iran for Israel for years no matter how many Americans have to die/get horribly maimed as a result of such (hence the Mearsheimer/Walt ‘The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy’ book is validated yet again!):
