Falcon Eye: The Israeli-installed mass civil surveillance system of Abu Dhabi

by Rori Donaghy, The Middle East Eye

Details about a covert security relationship between Israel and the United Arab Emirates have emerged, revealing a high-level partnership that has seen an Israeli-owned company become responsible for protecting the critical infrastructure of Abu Dhabi.

Emirati authorities, according to well-placed MEE sources who work closely with the companies involved, have contracted an Israeli-owned security firm to secure oil and gas installations in the UAE as well as to set up a globally unique civil surveillance network in Abu Dhabi that means “every person is monitored from the moment they leave their doorstep to the moment they return to it,” according to the source.

Review of Gilad Atzmon and the Orient House Ensemble’s “The Whistle Blower”

by Trevor LaBonte, The Ugly Truth

Musician/author Gilad Atzmon and The Orient House Ensemble have returned with their eighth album to date, a delightful offering entitled “The Whistle Blower.”

ATZMON’S BACKGROUND:

Atzmon is a former Israeli, former Jew, who underwent a spiritual awakening as a result of hearing the great bebop masters. He was taught his whole life as an Israeli Jew that Jewish artists and thinkers are superior to all else, but he knew he had been lied to, by virtue of the fact that Charlie Parker and many other great jazz artists were black and not Jewish.

Atzmon cut all ties with the Jewish state over twenty years ago, expatriated to London and completed a Master’s degree in Philosophy there. His solidarity to the Palestinian cause is evidenced by his choice to name his band after the Palestine Liberation Organizations former headquarters in Jerusalem, called, “Orient House.”

His criticisms of his own former Jewish ideological collective are brutally honest and hard-hitting. Let it suffice to say that his mission to liberate the discourse has led him far, far from the world of “political correctness,” yet he somehow balances all this with a successful career in jazz.

From Classic to Post-Resistance: On Hizbullah’s Transformation

by Amal Saad, Al-Akhbar English

Hezbollah’s intervention in Syria has been criticized by many in the Arab world as a sign that “they have abandoned resistance to fight fellow Muslims.” Their recent qualitative operation in Sheba’a against an Israeli military convoy, however, serves as a reminder that the movement has not shifted its focus away from Israel and is able to fight on several fronts simultaneously.

Hezbollah’s continued prioritization of its resistance activity, while entangled in multiple military theaters across the region, indicates that it has transcended its original, singular mission of resisting Israel. Confronting Israel is now one role among several others Hezbollah has assumed in the post-uprising regional political order, which has ushered in the rise of Takfirism. Outgrowing its resistance role, Hezbollah now assumes responsibility for guarding Lebanon’s borders, facilitating homeland security and counter-terrorism, as well as counter-insurgency operations in Syria and Iraq.
