Remembering Rev. Brockmann: A friend of Palestine

H.E. Father Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, M.M.

Rev. Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann, former Nicaraguan foreign minister and president of the United Nations General Assembly died on June 8, 2017. He was also a leading voice of conscience on Middle East peace. He is mourned by supporters of nine million Palestinian victims of the Western colonial project in Palestine.

Within hours of the first airstrikes against Gaza, Father Miguel condemned Israel’s actions as wanton aggression by a very powerful state against a territory that it illegally occupies. He insisted it was time for the General Assembly to take firm action if the United Nations does not want to be rightly accused of complicity by omission. In following days, the UN Security Council – which under the UN Charter is supposed to take primary responsibility for peace and security issues – discussed and debated and consistently failed to respond to the growing Gaza crisis, mostly because the veto-wielding United States was active in blocking action. Then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, in the midst of the slaughter of Gazan civilians, famously remarked, “We don’t need a cease-fire yet,” wrote Richard Falk, while paying tributes to Rev. Miguel on June 14, 2017.

The small Latin American nation of six million, has long been victim of American imperialism including the notorious Contra guerrilla insurgency that had been funded, equipped and trained by United States.

In order to fund its regime change in Nicaragua without the blessing of the Congress, Reagan administration created the Iran-Contra scandal. According to Barbara Honegger, a member of the 1980 Reagan-Bush campaign team and Reagan White House policy analyst, stated that the Reagan-Bush campaign negotiated with Iranian authorities to delay the release of American embassy staffers in Tehran until after the presidential election, and that military spare-parts sales to Iran pre-paid by the deposed King Reza Shah was part of that bargain. In order to discredit the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the shipment was publicized to be made by Israel. In June 1984, Robert McFarlane claimed that he got the money from Saudi ‘royals’ to fund the Contra rebels.

Barbara Honegger, author of book October Surprise deny the official 9/11 story. “Behind the Smoke Curtain: Or Everything You Think You Probably Know about the Pentagon Attack on 9/11 is Wrong,” she says (video below).

On January 11, 1987, Bernard Gwertzman reported at the Jew York Times: “In May 28-31, 2010, Robert McFarlane and his party of ten made a secret trip to Iran using falsified Irish passports – carrying a Bible with a handwritten verse from President Reagan for Iranian leaders, and a key-shaped cake to symbolize the anticipated ”opening” to Iran.” However, the mission failed when then president Ayatullah Ali Khamenei ordered the party to be deported immediately.

Nicaraguan socialist government build-up an alliance with Cuba, Venezuela, and the Islamic Republic to counter American imperialism. Iran-Nicaragua relations reached the peak under Ahmadinejad presidency. Ahmadinejad along with Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez visited Nicaragua in January 2012 to attend Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega inauguration. Speaking at the ceremony Ortega attacked the US occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, condemned the killing of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and supported Iran’s right to pursue its civilian nuclear program. He also urged the Zionist regime to destroy its nuclear weapons to foster peace in the region.

President Daniel Ortega visited Iran in June 2007 and met president Ahmadinejad and country’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei.

Ahmadinejad provided over US$550 million aid to Nicaragua to build a hospital, a university, a power plant and an agricultural research center.

Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega severed diplomatic ties with the Zionist entity in 2010, in protest over Israeli commandos storming Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara vessel carrying aid workers – killing nine Turkish citizens aboard. In late March 2017, the serial liar Netanyahu claimed that Israel-Nicaragua agreed to re-establish diplomatic relations immediately which have not materialized as yet.

Iranian foreign minister Dr. Mohammad Javad Zarif  visited Managua last year.

Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega government hosted the UN International Conference on Occupied Palestine in Managua on February 4, 2017.

Nicaraguan is a Christian-majority (90%) nation with only 1,500 Muslim community.

WSJ: Israel funds ISIS in Syria

On June 18, 2017, one of top Israeli hasbara (propaganda) outlets, Wall Street Journal, admitted the fact that Israel had been funding the ISIS terrorists in Syria for years.

Rory Jones reported that “Israel has been regularly supplying Syrian rebels near its border with cash as well as food, fuel and medical supplies for years. a secret engagement in the enemy country’s civil war aimed in carving out a buffer zone populated by friendly forces. Israel army is in regular communication with rebel groups and its assistance include undisclosed payment to its commanders that helps pay salaries to the fighters and buy ammunition and weapons.”

This fact had been denied by the Zionist regime and the Jewish-controlled mainstream media for years.

Rory Jones, WSJ’s reporter in Tel Aviv and Dubai desperately covers his Zionist AZZ by calling six year insurgency as civil war. In fact Israel and it agents were behind the armed campaign to bring an anti-Iran regime in Syria from day one. For example, on July 4, 2011, a conference of Syrian anti-regime groups was held in Saint-Germain in France. The meeting was attended by 200 people representing none of the Syrian groups calling for reforms in Syria – the ‘Democratic change in Syria’. The meeting was organized by La Regle du Jeu (The Rule of the Game) magazine and website which is headed by Zionist French Jew millionaire Bernard-Henri Levy. The other Zionist Jews who attended the meeting included Bernard Kouchner, former French foreign minister, Frederik Ansel, a member of Israel’s ruling Likud Party, Alex Goldfarb, former Knesset member and adviser to Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak and Andre Glucksmann, an Islamophobe French writer.

The only border Israel has with Syria is the two-third of Syrian Golan Heights the Jewish army occupied during the Israel’s 1967 aggression.

On October 12, 2012 Shimon Shiffer reported at Israeli daily Y Net that Netanyahu offered to handover Golan Heights to Bashar al-Assad in return for his promise to distance himself from Iran. The secret negotiations were held by Dennis B. Ross, Obama’s then special assistant for Middle East, Michael Herzog, a former chief of staff to Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak, and Frederic C. Hof, former US State Department official with Syrian foreign ministry officials.

On March 28, 2013, Aluf Benn reports in Assad is Israeli friend for Ha’aretz that “Damascus and Jerusalem were very close to an agreement in early 2011, which would have had Israel withdrawing from the Golan Heights in exchange for full peace and Syrian disengagement from Iran.”

However, the US-Israel trap failed as Bashar al-Assad refused to cancel his ties with Iran, Hizbullah or Palestinian resistance groups.

 On April 21, 2016, Gershom Gorenberg wrote at Jewish website, The American Prospect: “On Israeli maps the Golan is simply part of Israel, unilaterally annexed for all practical purposes nearly 35 years ago. On the rest of the world’s maps it is Israeli-occupied Syrian territory.”

The Wall Street Journal is owned by Australian-born Jew multi-billionaire Rupert Murdoch.

In December 2015, candidate Donald Trump claimed that Israel funds ISIS.

Kashmiris celebrate Pakistan win over India

On June 18, despite mourning the recent killings of a dozen of Muslim Kashmiris by Indian Occupation Force (IOF) in India’s annexed state of Jammu and Kashmir – firecrackers were bursting all over the Valley as it erupted in celebrations over the unexpected victory of Pakistan at the Oval (London) in the ICC Champions Cricket Trophy.

Thousands of people including elderly, women and children came out on the roads and streets across the Kashmir valley to join the celebrations of Pakistan’s victory over arch rival India.

Amid pro-Pakistan and pro-freedom slogans, firecrackers lit up the skies in occupied Kashmir. The ‘moderate’ Hurriyat chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq congratulated Pakistan over the winning the ICC Championship trophy.

In response an irked Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir posted .”Fireworks all around, feels like an early Eid (the end of month of Ramadan) here.”

In Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, residents accused officers of India’s Central Reserve Police Force of smashing cars and beating up people for celebrating Pakistan’s win. Many residents in India’s only majority Muslim state support Pakistan’s cricket team.

A cracker dealer in the city claimed to have sold firecrackers worth Rs 3 lakhs in a matter of some hours, “I was not the only one who opened up Sunday. The demand for firecrackers was huge and we had reserve stock as Eid is coming up,” he said.

Indian Hindu reaction to Pakistan’s victory over India was reported smashing TV sets, burning posters (watch video below) while Hindu media branding Kashmiris traitors for celebrating Pakistan’s victory. The only sensible comment I came across, was from a Hindu female journalist Angshukanta Chakraborty. She commented at Daily O India on June 19: “Why it shouldn’t matter if some Kashmiris are celebrating Pakistan’s win against India?“.

The demonstrations of joy and happiness at Pakistan victory happened in England, South Africa, the Caribbean islands, which hardly raised an eyebrow. In fact, East London, Birmingham, Manchester – places with substantial Pakistani immigrant population, as well as South Asians in general, green was the colour of choice for the night.‪But the concerns were poured in because celebrations took place in Kashmir. Valley erupted in joy, read a number of news reports. In Srinagar, Pakistani flags were waved, while crackers were burst. In Tral, victory marches were carried out. In Shopian, Kulgam, Sopore, Baramulla, displays of joy were reported. Some Kashmiris were evidently cheering on the Pakistan victory. Cricket nationalism is a rallying point in South Asia, but when it comes to India and Pakistan, it’s war. Sentiments notwithstanding, this classification of a beautiful game of cricket, postcolonised thoroughly from its imperial origins, into war, actually robs of the many moments of wonderful fuzziness it offers when it’s played and then replayed in our minds, sports pages, cricket columns and now, in the churning sea of social media jokes,” she said.

Kashmiri youths celebrate India losing wickets in Champions Trophy final

Hillary Clinton: I’m ‘Wonder Woman’ too!

Last Tuesday night, the organized Jewry’s most favorite American politician Hillary Clinton in a video message to the Women in Film’s Crystal + Lucy Awards compared herself to Hollywood comic Wonder Woman character (watch video below).

Hillary Clinton also praised Elizabeth Bank who was her greatest supporter from the entertainment industry during her 2016 presidential campaign.

Ironically, Hillary was not talking about Hollywood’s recent Israeli propaganda movie Wonder Woman dishing Israeli soldier-model-actress Gal Gadot who participated in 2006 Israeli war on Hizbullah. Hillary was in fact talking about the Jewish created comic character which became the UN ambassador for the so-called gender equality last year.

Based on her role as First Lady and Secretary of State, I think she deserves that title for doing beyond her power to serve Israel and the organized Jewry’s interests particularly in Libya and Syria and to some extent in Ukraine.

Hillary’s other less appreciated achievements include, 1) creating a massive pay to play slush fund, 2) bleachbit’ing 30,000 government emails, 3) and convincing half of America that Russia and not Israel hacked the US elections.

Rocker Ted Nugent, who was chased by ADL last year for claiming that Jews are behind the Gun Control Lobby to disarm US citizens – called Hillary Clinton as a Devil Bitch in a Facebook post that came moments after sharing a campaign video for Republican Donald Trump in which the performer was featured.

Al-Quds Day rally in London

Thousands of Londoners belonging to various religious and ethnic backgrounds joined the Al-Quds protest rally on Sunday despite pro-Israel Jewish and Christians groups’ petition to London Mayor Sadiq Khan to ban the protest rally (watch video blow).

The rally began from Zionist-controlled BBC and ended at the US embassy.

Several protesters carried flags of Lebanese Islamic Resistance Hizbullah and Gaza-ruling Islamic resistance Hamas. Participants shouted Free Palestine, Zionist Saudi Arabia and wipe Israel off the map slogans.

MP Jeremy Corbyn addressed the 2012 Al-Quds Day rally (listen below). However, now as leader of Labour part, he did not attend the rally in order not to irk the country’s organized Jewry.

Al-Quds Day rally has become largest annual protest in London since the 1980s.

The Al-Quds demonstration has been commemorated in London since Imam Khomeini ordered it, and it has been done so every year. This has become part and parcel of the program of the year. Even the Police sometimes contact us before the day and tell us that the Al-Quds day is approaching, so it is part of their calendar now. The significance of Al-Quds day goes far beyond that. Al-Quds demonstration is the one that is objected by the Zionists in Britain and Israel,” says Massoud Shajareh, chairman of UK’s Islamic Human Rights Commission.

Every year, Zionists try to stop this demonstration to take place. One of the reasons that they offer is that the event is the only anti-Israel Muslim rally. But in fact, it’s against the atrocities of Israeli Zionist Jews and it is joined by Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, and people of no faith, and people of all different backgrounds, who are against the atrocities and war crimes committed on the daily basis everyday, every year for the last 70 years in illegal occupied land of Palestinians. It is in support of the resistance of the Palestinians and therefore it has become targeted every year. This year we have seen similar targeting taking place ahead of the planed rally on Sunday,” he added.

As usual, the Jewish-controlled press have floated several Fake News such as some speaker blamed Jews for the recent Grenfell Tower fire.

Both Hamas and Hizbullah are not voted by British parliament as anti-British terrorist groups but since British government supports the Zionist entity which had declared both armed resistance groups as terrorists – the Jewish Lobby in Britain considers showing public support for Hamas or Hizbullah or displaying their flags in public are attack on Britain.

Pakistan crush India to win Cricket Championships

Inspired Pakistan crush India by 180 runs to win the Champions Trophy final 2017

Pakistan crushed world favorites India by 180 runs to clinch the ICC Championship Trophy title in a thrilling competition at London’s The Oval ground on Sunday (watch below).

Pakistani team set up a daunting 339-run target with a loss of four wickets, but Indian batting collapsed under a calculated bowling attack, with all men out for just 158 runs in the 31st over of 50 over game.

India needed 339 runs to beat Pakistan at a required run rate of more than 6.76. Pakistan had established a run rate of 6.76.

Pakistan Fakhar Zaman is the only batsman who scored an unbeaten 114 – his maiden century and the first Pakistani batsmen to score a century in ICC Championship tournament final. He is awarded the Player of the Match.

The last time Pakistani openers scored more than 100 runs prior to the fall of the first wicket in two consecutive matches was in 2003. This is only the second time the same has happened outside Asia.

Left-arm fast bowler Muhammad Amir kicked off Pakistan’s bowling attack, taking three crucial early wickets ─ those of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan.

The score is Pakistan’s second-highest against India. The last time Pakistan beat India was in 2009 – also during a Champions Trophy match.

Hasan Ali matched Amir’s three, taking the wickets of MS Dhoni, Ravichandran Ashwin and JJ Bumrah.

Pakistan team: Sarfraz Ahmed (Captain), Azhar Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Junaid Khan.

India team: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (capt), Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni (wkt), Hardik Pandya, Kedhar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jaspreet Bumrah.

South-African-born Pakistan head coach John Michael Arthur is very pleased with how Pakistan went on to defy all expectations and win the ICC Champions Trophy and wants to build on this for the ICC World Cup in 2019.

Pakistan batsman Mohammad Hafeez says his team-mates vowed to stick together despite the avalanche of criticism and they reaped the rewards in memorable fashion on Sunday.

Pakistan victory will certainly start some sort of anti-Muslim riots by the Hindutva BJP and other Hindu extremists in India as they have done in the past (here).

 

WATCH Muslims saving lives at London’s Grenfell Tower fire

On June 13 a deadly fire gutted down London’s 24-storey residential Grenfell Tower and killed 70 residents, mostly belonging to lower middle class. As the death toll climbs, so the anger. Much of it is being directed at Tory PM Theresa May for negligence and government’s plan to turn the Grenfell Tower into a luxury residential building for the wealthy class. Some people even believe (watch video below) that it’s an inside job just like the Manchester terrorist attack and the London Bridge shooting.

One investigative British site claimed that Grenfell Tower demolition was an inside job just like the Building 7 demolition on September 11, 2001 (watch video below).

The residents said that many more people would have died if it had not been Islamic month of fasting (Ramadan). “These Muslim boys helped us,” said residents (watch video below).

Muslims were among the first people on the scene as people were being evacuated and eyewitness accounts have corroborated that many sought to hand out food and clothes to the victims of the fire.

Shekeb Neda, 24, a recent mechanical engineering graduate from Kingston University carried his disabled mother Flora, 55, on his back through smoke down 24 flights of stairs right to the bottom of Grenfell Tower. His mother who suffers from a chronic muscle ­disease collapsed from the smoke which entered their home.

On Friday, thousands of Londoners took to street demanding swift action from Theresa May government.

Chants of We want justice! rang out as Londoners made their way into Kensington town hall, where they demanded answers from those responsible for ensuring the maintenance of building safety standards.

Theresa May was close to the scene, but she soon had to be rushed away under heavy police guard as protestors chanted May must go! and Shame on you!

The demonstration was in response to Mustafa Almansur, a Bangladeshi Muslim who hosts TV show ISLAM IN FOCUS.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince William visited Grenfell Tower in order to show their sympathy for the fire victims.

Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn met with the victims of the fire and demanded that the empty homes of rich people in Kensington to be seized for the Grenfell Tower residents who have been made homeless by the fire.
