Syrian Ambassador quotes Orwell: ‘In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act’

Another Security Council meeting today…and as before, the last speaker, once again, was Syrian Ambassador Bashar Jaafari. Syria is not a Security Council member, but under the guidelines in place, whenever a country becomes the subject of a Security Council debate, its representative is recognized to speak.  In his remarks, Jaafari quoted the famous line from George Orwell about truth-telling during times of universal deceit–and Jaafari’s speech was rather admirable, containing quite a few revolutionary acts in its own right.

Russian Forces on Combat Alert; Israeli Officials Call for US to Attack Syria

The website South Front is doing an excellent job keeping track of explosive developments in Syria. Below are links to articles they have posted today as Western hysteria continues to mount over the latest alleged chemical attack. One of the most irritatingly provocative, though totally unsurprising, developments in the fluid situation is that at least two Israeli officials have now issued public calls for the US to attack Syria:

Cynthia McKinney Calls a Shofar a Shofar

[Ed. note – For the past few days, word has been circulating around that the same photographer who filmed the truck bombing in Nice on July 14, also happens to have been on hand at the attack in Munich on July 22. The issue has been posted on Twitter by Cynthia McKinney and has also been discussed at Reddit, Veterans Today, and elsewhere. ]

By Ariadna Theokopoulos

Cynthia McKinney calls a shofar a shofar and links Israel –she does not just “appear” to make the link, as the Hill cautiously indicates — to recent terror attacks in France and Germany.

Only if one believes in astronomical odds coincidences can one arrive at a different conclusion. No wonder they gerrymandered her district to arrange for her ouster from Congress…

Helter Skelter in a Summer Swelter

By Doug Hagmann | July 8, 2016

At 5:18 ET this morning, I received a call to my private number as a result of an email I sent to a Dallas, Texas police officer who I first met during my visit to that city earlier this year. Given the volatility and ongoing nature of the events taking place, the call came earlier that I anticipated but was met with welcome relief.

The Dallas Parallel with Maidan Sniper Shootings: Is Ukrainian Chaos Coming to America?

Our friend Ariadna refers to it as the “Maidanizing of America.” She may be right. Most of us recall the sniper shootings that occurred in Ukraine’s Maidan Square in February of 2014–there does seem to be a certain similarity between what happened then and that which took place Thursday night in Dallas. And in the video above James Corbett also draws a link with the sniper attacks that occurred in Daraa in 2011 at the outset of the Syrian conflict.

Dallas Sniper Attack: Story Morphing

Alleged Dallas shooter Micah Johnson

[Ed. note – The alleged sniper in the Dallas terror attack has been conveniently killed by a robot. Well, at least they didn’t bury him at sea, “according to Islamic tradition.” As Scott Creighton puts it, the story is presently “morphing.” Seems like false flag attacks have a habit of doing that. ]

Multiple Snipers Becoming One Dead ‘Lone Gunman’….Carpenter (Patsy?) Micah Johnson

By Scott Creighton

Gone like hobos in Dallas, like Dancing Israelis in New York, like the three tall white guys in San Bernadino, like the extra shooters in Orlando…

What’s really frightening is that after all the witnesses saying there were at least two shooter positions located high above downtown Dallas and the fact that they have 3 more suspects in custody, reportedly arrested in possession of rifles, they are now starting to seed the public with the idea that Johnson acted … alone.

Israeli Firm Ran Security at Brussels Airport on Day of Bombing

[ Ed. note – this comes under the heading of “old news,” but certainly it’s something worth keeping in mind. The Israeli security firm ICTS was providing security for Brussells Airport earlier this year, on March 22, the day the airport was bombed. ICTS, coincidentally, also handled security duties at Boston’s Logan airport on September 11, 2001, as well as for London’s transit system on July 7, 2005, and as the writer of the article below comments, “That’s quite a record.” ]

By Sott

The aviation and general security services firm ICTS handles security operations at Brussels airport, the scene of a bomb attack yesterday morning.

ICTS was established in 1982 by former members of Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security agency and El Al airline security agents, and has a major presence around the world in airport security including operations in the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Japan and Russia. ICTS uses the security system employed in Israel, whereby passengers are profiled to assess the degree to which they pose a potential threat on the basis of a number of indicators, including age, name, origin and behavior during questioning.
