A senior Iraqi parliamentarian warns that the US embassy in Baghdad is involved in “suspicious activities,” saying agents of the Israeli spy agency Mossad and the Daesh terrorist group have been spotted regularly visiting the diplomatic mission.

“The US embassy in Baghdad has turned into a center for Israel’s Mossad and ISIS (Daesh) terrorists,” Hassan Salem was quoted as saying by the Iraqi Arabic-language al-Sumariya news website.

Salem said the US embassy is interfering in Iraq’s internal affairs by spying, spreading rumors and hatching plots.

“The US embassy’s violation of laws and forgetting its responsibilities based on the international laws mean that the center could not be called an embassy and therefore, its closure is legally necessary,” the Iraqi lawmaker said.

US giving Daesh head protection

Salem had earlier suggested that US forces in Ain al-Assad military base were protecting Daesh ringleader Ibrahim al-Samarrai, aka Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in the western desert of Iraq’s Anbar province.

“Al-Baghdadi is using the Anbar desert as a safe haven, while the US forces provide him with all means of support from their station at the Ain al-Assad military base in Anbar province,” Salem said in February.

The Iraqi MP argued then that America’s support for al-Baghdadi “stems from Washington’s fear of a draft bill on expelling foreign troops from Iraq, which the parliament intends to vote on during the new legislative term.”

Also in February, former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki for the first time divulged explosive secrets about how the United States supported Daesh and intentionally allowed the Takfiri terror outfit to gain power in Iraq so that Washington could creep back into the Arab country.

He said the administration of former US President Barack Obama had played a key role in the creation of Daesh by allowing the terrorist group to overrun Iraqi territories.

In March, an Iraqi security expert also revealed that the American embassy in Iraq was carrying out suspicious measures, describing the mission as a US-Israeli operations room that sought to destabilize the region.

Abbas al-Ardawi was quoted by the Arabic-language al-Ma’alomeh news website as saying that US administration was exerting pressures on Baghdad and killing time to prolong its deployment in Iraq.

He said the relocation of terrorists from the town of Baqouz in Eastern Syria to the US bases in Iraq was aimed to stir security tensions in the country and find a pretext for continued deployment of American forces.

Al-Ardawi said Iraqi lawmakers certainly wanted all US forces to be expelled from the country as soon as possible given the fact that the Iraqi army.

Another senior Iraqi expert had in January warned of Washington’s attempts to increase its influence in Iraq, saying Israeli spies and Daesh terrorists were present at across US bases in Iraq.

Hafez Al-e Basharah told al-Ma’aloumeh news website that the US was attempting to boost its presence in Iraq and the American forces had been stationed in the southern parts of Baghdad.

He went on to say that the US forces did not allow any Iraqis to enter their bases in the country in an attempt to conceal the realities from the public opinion.

Israeli intelligence agents were also operating from the bases, where Takfiri terrorists also received shelter and training, he added.

At least six civilians were killed and eight others were wounded in a rocket attack at the northern Syrian city of Aleppo and its surroundings.

The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), said that the attack, which took place in the afternoon of July 14, targeted the district of Halab al-Jadidah in the western part of Aleppo’s city centre and the town of Minyan west of the city.

Few hours earlier, a rocket launched from Greater Idlib hit the Municipal Palace in the city centre of Aleppo. The attack caused material damage and injured a little girl.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) responded to these attacks by shelling militants’ positions in the towns of Kafr Naha, Khan Al-Asal and Kafr Hamrah west and northwest of Aleppo. Syrian warplanes also conducted a series of airstrikes on the town of al-Bawabiya in the southwestern countryside of Aleppo.

No group has claimed responsibility for these attacks, yet. However, several units of the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) are known to be stationed north and west of Aleppo. This suggests that the group may have been involved in the deadly attack.

BREAKING: Israeli forces have shot 10 year old, Abdul-Rahman Shtiewi, in the head. He is from and was shot in Kafr Qaddoum, during the Friday demonstrations against the illegal settlement blocking the road which connects the village to Nablus.

Abdul-Rahman was reportedly shot after leaving his home and according to Quds News was not participating in the demonstration. He is in critical condition and is currently in Rafidya hospital in Nablus.

I was in Kafr Qaddoum in 2017 and briefly met Abdul-Rahman. The soldiers then, as they did today, fired live ammunition as well as rubber bullets completely randomly and directly at demonstrators.

I myself was shot at my one of these soldiers, the bullet missing my shoulder by inches. They routinely occupy homes and use them as a means of sniping out protestors. Many friends of mine have been injured lightly and severely at these protests. The soldiers are cowardly and insane.

This has to stop, how many more children like Abdul-Rahman have to die or sustain similar injuries???

Trump completely lacked an exit strategy when he pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal and made the decision out of pure animosity towards his predecessor, the ex-UK ambassador to the US said, according to a new embarrassing leak.

Desperate to save the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), then-UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson flew to the US in May 2018 to persuade President Donald Trump to abide by the accord. Despite intense negotiations at the White House with Trump’s closest aides that lasted for 26 hours, Johnson returned empty-handed, simply because Trump wanted to spite Barack Obama for negotiating the agreement, the UK’s former ambassador to the US, Sir Kim Darroch, told 10 Downing Street, according to a leaked diplomatic cable published by the Mail on Sunday.

The Administration is set upon an act of diplomatic vandalism, seemingly for ideological and personality reasons – it was Obama’s deal.

The cable sent out on May 8 last year also claimed that the White House had lacked any strategy on how to handle the withdrawal and suggested that there were strong disagreements among Trump’s closest advisers.

They can’t articulate any ‘day-after’ strategy; and contacts with State Department this morning suggest no sort of plan for reaching out to partners and allies, whether in Europe or the region.

In another cable sent out the same day, Sir Darroch blamed Trump for following the line of National Security Advisor John Bolton, who promulgated withdrawal from the deal and the re-imposition of sanctions.

ALSO ON RT.COM British ambassador to the US Darroch quits over leaked Trump secret memos rowThe British tabloid went on to release the second batch of Sir Darroch’s wires despite the warning by the Metropolitan Police not to publish the government leaks. The initial publication of cables last week caused a diplomatic scandal between Washington and the UK. It resulted in Sir Darroch’s resignation on Wednesday, after Trump unleashed a salvo of attacks against the diplomat, who described his administration as “dysfunctional” and “inept.” The Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command is now investigating the source of the leak.

“The BBC is institutionally pro-Zionist and institutionally spineless” says former BBC senior editor.

by Gilad Atzmom

The BBC’s Panorama channel ‘investigation’ into Labour’s ‘anti-Semitism’ was so blatantly one sided its broadcast as ‘news’ demanded an explanation. In an attempt to grasp why the British national broadcaster fails to fulfil its core mission to report the news in as unbiased a manner as possible,  I interviewed a former senior editor for the BBC. The editor, a 35 year veteran of the BBC, reveals the culture that has steered the BBC into its present position as a Zionist mouthpiece.

In acting as a whistle blower, the former editor risks severe consequences.  In Britain leading journalists have been locked behind bars and put under threat of extradition for reporting information whose truthfulness has not even been challenged.

Is Labour Anti-Semitic? - BBC Panorama - YouTube
\n","url":"https://youtu.be/F7eEQMyzLeo","width":854,"height":480,"providerName":"YouTube","thumbnailUrl":"https://i.ytimg.com/vi/F7eEQMyzLeo/hqdefault.jpg","resolvedBy":"youtube"}” data-block-type=”32″>

Q: What about political impartiality, supposedly a core BBC value?

A: Unfortunately, there are many examples of  such pro- Israel hype, some blatant and others who slant the news by use of emphasis and/or  omission. For instance, there was Sarah Montague’s interview with Israel’s defence minister, Moshe Ya’alon, in March 2015, Head of Statistics’ Anthony Reuben’s reflection on fatalities in Gaza   (http://tinyurl.com/ycc9p8d4), and the utilization of  Gil Hoffman, an Israeli army reservist and chief political correspondent for the Jerusalem Post to write for the BBC News website (http://tinyurl.com/yanppk93) to mention but a few.

Q:  Does the broadcaster have the means or inclination to fix itself ?

A: In my opinion, the chances of the BBC fixing itself is about zero. Apart from what I have said above, it is a cowardly, spineless organisation. Not only does it always pursue the path of least resistance by selecting to broadcast what is least likely to upset the Zionist lobby, but it is also deadly afraid of what the Daily Mail might say about its output. Very often, and by that I mean almost on a daily basis, one would hear senior managers ask at the morning agenda-setting editorial meetings, “What would the Daily Mail say about that?” Invariably, they would choose what is least likely to be picked up and criticised by the Daily Mail. Please remember, this is a public broadcaster that is funded by taxpayers (yes, the License Fee is a tax) and is supposed to “Educate, Inform and Entertain”, not propagandise on behalf of Israel.

Q: Some of the so-called Labour ‘Whistleblowers’ were exposed by Al Jazeera as Israeli Lobby assets. Is it possible that the BBC was so bold as to interview these characters hoping that no one would notice or was it simply  a matter of a clumsy decision making? Can the BBC match the journalistic dedication of organisations such as RT or Al Jazeera?

A: There is no chance whatsoever that the BBC would do anything approximating Al Jazeera TV’s programme on Israeli infiltration of the Labour Party (http://tinyurl.com/yad6fslm). The BBC is institutionally pro-Zionist and institutionally spineless.

Q: You worked in the corporation for 35 years, did you notice a deterioration in the quality of people hired? Was there a change in employees’ attitudes and their willingness to express themselves freely and critically?

A: I worked for the BBC’s English-language outlets as an editor and senior editor for 35 years. Since the early 1990s there has been growing intolerance of criticism of editorial management decisions, even in internal forums which internal BBC propaganda claims are meant for staff to speak freely. This applies across the board on all matters. But certainly with regard to Israel and Zionism, any questioning of BBC impartiality would attract accusations of anti-Semitism and would certainly spell the end of one’s career, no matter how privately and confidentially such criticism is conveyed.

The Lobby P3: An Anti-Semitic Trope l Al Jazeera Investigations - YouTube

The US and Israel are desperate to make sure that Jeremy Corbyn does not become British Prime Minister, for one reason and that reason is that he speaks out for the people of Palestine.

Any other British politicians that also speak out in this way are not working for the British people, but working for Israel

Israel and the US have changed the meaning of ‘anti semitic’ to mean anyone who speaks out against Israel’s crimes against humanity.

With the US crying fowl, that the Russia interfered with the US elections, which saw Trump win. Now we see Pompeo is actually threatening to interfere in British elections to stop Jeremy Corbyn winning an election.

The above video shows how Israel is going all out, spreading anti semitic lies about the labour party. Israel is targeting and killing children on a daily basis, yet they call anybody that sees this as bad as anti semitic. If this is the case, then they are making being anti semitic a good thing. The holocaust in Germany pales in comparison to the one that is happening in Palestine. Sticking labels on people that do not agree with the killing of children, will not wash.

Israel interfering in British politics, to get support with their horrific crimes against humanity, supporting ISIS, the bombing of Syria and wanting war in Iran, must end.

The above video is Part 3 of the 4 part series and the links to the other parts are below. Watch and share, because this must stop. They say we should learn from what happened in the Second World War, so it does not happen again. Israel took the horrors and increased them ten fold.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – Several loud explosions were heard around the coastal city of Jableh this evening as the militants in northeastern Latakia attempted to attack the Hmeimim Airbase.

According to a military source near the Hmeimim Airbase, the militants used attack drones to bomb the military installation.

The source said the Russian air defences were immediately activated when the militant drones reached the northeastern perimeter of the Hmeimim Airbase.

No bombs were reported to have hit the Hmeimim Airbase; however, some of the militant projectiles hit the nearby areas.

Tonight’s attack by the militant forces marks the first time this month that they have targeted the Hmeimim Airbase in southwestern Latakia.
