Three years ago, in late October 2011, the world witnessed the final defeat of the Libyan Jamahiriya – the name by which the Libyan state was known until overthrown in 2011, meaning literally the ‘state of the masses’ – in the face of a massive onslaught from N ATO, its regional allies and local collaborators.
It took seven months for the world’s most powerful military alliance – with a combined military spending of just under $1 trillion per year – to fully destroy the Jamahiriya (a state with a population the size of Wales) and it took a joint British-French-Qatari special forces operation to finally win control of the capital. In total, 10,000 strike sorties were rained down on Libya, tens of thousands killed and injured, and the country left a battleground for hundreds of warring factions, armed to the teeth with weapons either looted from state armouries or provided directly by NATO and its allies. Britain, France and the US had led a war which had effectively transformed a peaceful, prosperous African country into a textbook example of a ‘failed state’.

Yet again, “Israel” and the Zionist-controlled media are blood-libeling Iran in the press with misleading and inflammatory headlines such as “Iran leader’s call to ‘annihilate’ Israel sparks fury as nuclear deadline looms.” “Israel’s” game is all-too-obvious at this point. Genocidal, terroristic, racist, and illegitimate as the Zionist regime is, its survival strategy consists of painting itself to be the “only democracy in the Middle East,” while portraying everyone else as “hostile Islamic nations” that want to “massacre all the jews.” Of course, Iran is also portrayed in the media as a “nuclear threat”, even though the top 16 Western intelligence agencies have all stated unequivocally that Iran is not seeking nuclear weapons. In fact, Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei has issued a legally binding fatwa (a religious decree) against nuclear weapons, citing that they are “un-Islamic.” Meanwhile, the hypocritical, usurping Zionist entity “Israel” is known to be sitting on it’s own enormous cache of illegal, unregistered nukes.

Given that Gilad Atzmon and Shlomo Sand are both former Jews who have provided criticism of Jewish identity politics, it may be illuminating to understand why the organized, kosherized, Palestinian “solidarity community” embraces Sand while rejecting and disavowing Atzmon.
Atzmon’s initial reaction to his own “disavowal” was characteristically humorous, with him stating that he has only ever operated as an individual, and cannot be kicked out of any groups because he never belonged to any to begin with. Continue reading Why Do They Hate Atzmon And Love Sand?
(EDITOR’S NOTE: While Mouqawamah Music has no affinity whatsoever for the Bolsheviks, whom were overwhelming Jewish and guided by, to say the very least, “false ideological considerations” as pointed out by Russian President Vladimir V. Putin — much to the ire of International Jewry — we decided to share this piece because it demonstrates that the false flag is something of an omnipresence in geopolitical happenings, even going back nearly 100 years. The intelligence services of the usurping Zionist entity and The West, particularly those which belong to the American, British and French regimes, are notorious for staging events, provoking conflicts and facilitating terrorism for the sake of achieving geo-strategic gains. The Jewish-controlled mainstream media and all of its sycophants, notably those of the “liberal” and “antiwar” variety, have long attempted to smear and discredit those who would explore the history and validity of the false flag, but insha’ALLAH khair, with yet another proof surfacing of intelligence services using the aforesaid tactic, this disgracefully wrong discourse will enter into yet another phase of erosion on its road to total liquidation. ~ Jonathan Azaziah) Continue reading Zinoviev letter was dirty trick by MI6

RT, one of my favorite news sources, has fallen for a fake story put out by the Pentagon to support the fantasy story that a SEAL team killed Osama bin Laden, who died a second time in Abbottabad, Pakistan, a decade after his first death from illness and disease. http://rt.com/usa/202895-navy-seal-shot-binladen/
This fake story together with the fake movie and the fake book by an alleged SEAL team member is the way the fake story of bin Laden’s murder is perpetrated. Bin Laden’s alleged demise at the hands of a SEAL team was a propaganda orchestration, the purpose of which was to give Obama a hero’s laurels and deep six Democratic talk of challenging his nomination for a second term.
Osama bin Laden died in December 2001 of renal failure and other health problems, having denied in his last recorded video any responsibility for 9/11, instead directing Americans to look inside their own government. The FBI itself has stated that there is no evidence that Osama bin Laden is responsible for 9/11. Bin Laden’s obituary appeared in numerous foreign and Arabic press, and also on Fox News. No one can survive renal failure for a decade, and no dialysis machine was found in the alleged Abbottabad compound of bin Laden, who allegedly was murdered by SEALs a decade after his obituary notices.

Iran Trip: September – October 2014
Marcel Proust said: “The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” During the past two decades, I visited Iran on numerous occasions staying 10-14 days at a time. This time around, I stayed for 2 months and heeding Proust, I carried with me a fresh pair of eyes. I discarded both my Western lenses as well as my Iranian lenses and observed with objective eyes. It was a formidable journey that left me breathless.
Part I – Women of the Islamic Republic of Iran
It is hard to know where to start a travel log and how to describe a newfound world in a few pages. However, given the obsession with the status of women, it is perhaps appropriate to start with the women in Iran as I perceived them.
Western media with help from feminists and Iranians living outside of Iran portray Iranian women as being “oppressed” — foremost because women in Iran have to abide by an Islamic dress code – hijab. Yes, hijab is mandatory and women choose to either wear either a chador or to wear a scarf. But what is crucial to understand is the role chador played in pre 1979 versus the post Revolution era.

After a popular uprising forced Burkina Faso’s longtime dictator Blaise Compaoré from power after a 27-year long reign supported by the United States and France, President Barack Obama had to move fast. The White House wanted to ensure that loyalists of Compaoré’s assassinated predecessor, Marxist icon Thomas Sankara, a man his mother, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) / Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) maven Ann Dunham Soetoro, may have helped to topple in 1987, did not return to power in the landlocked West African nation. Continue reading Obama’s preventive coup in Burkina Faso
Hundreds of thousands of people in Burkina Faso have forced the longtime imperialist-backed leader, President Blaise Compaore, to resign amid mass demonstrations and rebellions in several cities across the West African country. Compaore took power in a French-supported coup on Oct. 15, 1987 against revolutionary Pan-Africanist and socialist leader Capt. Thomas Sankara.
