Einmal wieder in Sorge

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Eine weitere Erinnerung an das syrische Giftgasprogramm:

A Syrian defector, who was formerly involved in Syria’s chemical weapons program, charged that the Assad regime has mulled using chemical weapons against opposition forces and predicted that the regime would not hesitate to do so as a last resort. Major General Adnan Sillu, who defected to the opposition three months ago, also contends that the regime considered transferring the deadly weapons to Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Lebanese terrorist group which has assisted the regime’s efforts to repress the Syrian opposition. (…)

The German magazine Der Spiegel also reported on Monday that the Syrian Army conducted chemical weapons tests in August at a site near the embattled city of Aleppo. Eyewitnesses claimed that the exercise—which involved firing empty chemical weapons shells from tanks and warplanes—was observed by a delegation of Iranian military officers who were thought to be members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The commander of the Revolutionary Guards admitted earlier this week that Tehran has deployed members of the elite Quds Force unit to help Syria Assad regime to crush the opposition. Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said that defending Syria dictatorship is a “point of pride” for Iran.

Türkische Piloten in Syrien exekutiert?

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Sollte es sich bei diesen Dokumenten nicht um irgendwelche Fälschungen handeln, dann dürfte es in diesen Stunden in Ankara im Außenministerium doch ziemlich hektisch hergehen. Und nicht nur dort, denn, wie gesagt, sollte es sich  um authentische Beweise handeln, dann müsste, sollte die Türkei es denn wollen, eigentlich der Nato-Bündnisfall eintreten…, den die Türkei ja schon ausrufen wollte, als das Flugzeug im Juni abgeschossen wurde, dann aber auf Druck der USA nicht tat…

As political tensions mount between neighboring Syria and Turkey, newly-leaked Syrian intelligence documents obtained by Al Arabiya disclose shocking claims shedding light on the dreadful fate of two Turkish Air Force pilots. 

Contrary to what was publically claimed, the documents reveal that the pilots survived the crash, but were later executed by the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad!

Und auch Rußland soll angeblich direkt involviert gewesen sein:

A subsequently leaked file, also sent from the presidential palace and addressed to all heads of units of the Syrian foreign intelligence, reads: “Based on information and guidance from the Russian leadership comes a need to eliminate the two Turkish pilots detained by the Special Operations Unit in a natural way and their bodies need to be returned to the crash site in international waters.”

Die Quellen von Farsnews

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Farsnews meldet:

According to the results of a Gallup poll released Monday, the overwhelming majority of rural white Americans said they would rather vote for Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than US President Barack Obama.

“I like him better,” said West Virginia resident Dale Swiderski, who, along with 77 percent of rural Caucasian voters, confirmed he would much rather go to a baseball game or have a drink with Ahmadinejad than spend time with Obama.

“He takes national defense seriously, and he’d never let some gay protesters tell him how to run his country like Obama does.”

Tja, die angebliche Umfrage stammt nur aus einer Meldung von The Onion, einem amerikanischen Satireblatt.

.... hat mit dem Mohammad Film nichts zu tun

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Der neue libysche Präsident erklärt NBC, was schon vorher eigentlich jeder hätte wissen können. Die angeblich wegen “verletzter religiöser” Gefühle, oder was auch immer, so empörte und gewalttätig werdende arabische Strasse in Benghazi war ein lange im Voraus geplanter Coup:

Reaction should have been, if it was genuine, six months earlier. So it was postponed until the 11th of September,” he said. “They chose this date, 11th of September to carry a certain message.”

Magarief said there were no protesters at the site before the attack, which he noted came in two assaults, first with rocket-propelled grenades on the consulate, then with mortars at a safe house.

Magarief told Curry that based on the accuracy of the assault, he believes the attackers must have had training and experience using the weapons.

“It’s a pre-planned act of terrorism,” he said, adding that the anti-Islam film had “nothing to do with this attack.”

Islamismus, in wenigen Absätzen erklärt

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Sabah Salih erklärt in wenigen Worten, aber dafür um so treffender, was Islamismus ist und wie im die sog. westliche Welt nicht begegnen sollte:

Islamism, by its own self-definitions, is an effort to put the human mind in chains. Its simplistic and totalitarian slogan, “Islam is the answer,” makes prohibition on thinking mandatory for all; whatever it doesn’t go with this severely limited mindset, it attacks in the name of Allah, turning silencing dissent by whatever means into a religious duty. The West only recently has been experiencing the rage of Islamism, but Islamism has been in this game for a long, long time in Muslim-majority countries.

One day it’s liquor stores the Islamists attack. Another day they go after women who refuse to allow their bodies to be imprisoned in clothes alien to them. But most of the time their targets include products of human creativity and thought: a newspaper article, a book, a lecture, a poem, a painting, a play, a movie, a photograph, to name just a few.

The Islamist goal is to crush all opposition through fear, intimidation, blackmail, violence, and legal action, but its ultimate goal is much more drastic: a complete overhaul of society and the fashioning of a new national mindset. That’s why Islamists are so eager to put the educational and legal systems, along with the media and public spaces, under their sole control. Such mindset would be anchored in a series of simplistic and rigid absolutes that would have no room for things that help society move forward: debate, argument, and freedom of inquiry. (…)

To put non-Islamist Muslims further on the defensive and to portray themselves as the only legitimate voice of Islam, the Islamists never miss an opportunity to be seen attacking Western targets; their message is, If you’re not with us, then you’re with our enemies. And when Western governments offer unconditional apologizes, wittingly or unwitting, these governments leave non-Islamist Muslims with no option but to sheepishly follow the Islamist line; they don’t even have the option to be silent. One day Obama’s and Clinton’s words will come back to haunt them.

Iran: Öleinnahmen und der islamistisch-militärisch-industrielle Komplex

von Wahied Wahdat-Hagh

Der Iran hat enorme Wirtschaftsprobleme, die die totalitären Machthaber nicht lösen können und wollen. Sie haben im islamistischen Roulettespiel auf eine Farbe und auf eine Zahl gesetzt: Öleinnahmen für Waffen und Atomprogramm.

Akbar Türkan, der Ex-Staatssekretär des iranischen Ölministeriums, stellte kürzlich fest, dass seit 2005, in der Regierungszeit des Präsidenten Ahmadinejad die iranischen Öleinnahmen rund 531 Milliarden Dollar betragen haben. Gegenwärtig bestünden 80 Prozent der iranischen Staatseinnahmen aus dem Öl- und Gasgeschäft.

Eine Klarstellung der Hamas

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Für alle künftigen Mavi Marmara Warriors, BDS-Aktivisten und jene, denen Gaza ein neues Warschauer Ghetto ist, eine  Klarstellung der Hamas, die deutlicher nicht ausfallen könnte:

Hamas official Mahmoud Zahhar told Ma’an News Agency on Friday that seven years after the Israeli disengagement, “Gaza is free of occupation, and contiguity with the outside world is easier as visitors from all over the world visited the coastal enclave.”
The Hamas official boasted that economic conditions in Gaza are much better than in the West Bank; “people in Gaza receive full salaries.”
