Meanwhile, in a "revolt"ting development, unexpected consequence of the so called "Arab Spring," and ahead of the UN vote to recognize the Palistineans as a "state,"

By Tom Perry CAIRO, Nov 20 (Reuters) -

Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal looked like a man at home in Cairo this week as he used the Egyptian capital to declare terms for a ceasefire with Israel, his confidence reflecting the historic changes shaping an Arab world more supportive of his cause.

In Cairo for talks on the Gaza crisis, the bearded Hamas leader in exile has been warmly received in a country where officials viewed his movement with suspicion bordering on outright hostility when Hosni Mubarak was in power.

In stark contrast to those days, a smiling Meshaal was photographed on Monday meeting President Mohamed Mursi, the head of a new Egyptian administration shaped by the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas' spiritual mentor. Mursi, unlike Mubarak, is taking a personal interest in truce talks Egypt is overseeing.

Behind the scenes, Hamas leaders are finding a very different attitude from the Egyptian mediators.

In Mubarak's days, the Palestinians often complained that Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman, who died earlier this year, would try to impose Israel's terms on them. "The Egyptian brothers in the intelligence service have always helped in truce matters, this time they are being more helpful because President Mursi is in charge," said a source close to Hamas. "The former regime used to pressure us more than they did Israel," the source said.

The changes buoying Hamas have started to become clear in the tone from other Arab states too - a delegation of eight Arab ministers arrived in Gaza on Tuesday in the latest visit to express solidarity with the Palestinians.

The shift marks a challenge to the policies of Western governments including the United States. They shun Hamas as a terrorist group, dealing instead with the Palestinian Authority, from which Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007.

It also shows that public opinion is starting to have an impact on the foreign policies of Arab states long run by autocrats who have paid scant attention to the views of populations broadly supportive of the Palestinians.


 "Hamas has always been arguing that it is part of the future of the region and the Palestinian Authority was part of the past," said Ghassan Khatib, who worked as the authority's spokesman until September. "This concept seems to have been consolidated more with this war," Khatib, now a teacher of Arab studies at Birzeit University in the West Bank, told Reuters.

While Meshaal's public profile has been the ascent, President Mahmoud Abbas, head of the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority, has been trying to stay relevant. Accused of complicity in the last major Israeli offensive in Gaza, Abbas has appeared more in tune with the Arab mood this time around, calling for protests and offering diplomatic support by calling for Tuesday's Arab League visit to the Hamas-run territory.

Qatar, a tiny but influential Gulf emirate allied to the United States, is leading the way in forging a new Arab approach towards Gaza and Hamas. Its head of state visited Gaza last month, pledging $400 million in aid. There were flashes of the new mood at the weekend during an Arab League meeting called to debate the Gaza crisis.

Arab ministers long criticised for inaction said this time there must be concrete steps.

Following the example set by Egypt's prime minister, who visited Gaza last Friday, eight Arab ministers accompanied by the Arab League secretary general then drew up plans for their trip.

Analysts question what Arab states, particularly Egypt, can offer beyond diplomatic, financial and moral support. Israel remains militarily far superior to neighbouring nations that remember a string of ruinous wars with Israel.


Yet the Gaza visit underlines changes in the Middle East since in 2008/09 - the last time Hamas fought a war of this length with Israel.

Back then, Hamas' list of regional friends was much shorter and mostly limited to Syria, Iran and the Lebanese guerrilla and political movement Hezbollah. Hamas has since cut ties with Damascus because of the crisis unleashed by the Syrian government's efforts to crush a revolt against President Bashar al-Assad.

The group's exiled leadership have moved out of the Syrian capital. They now spend their time between Cairo and Doha, the Qatari capital, though neither has been named as a formal headquarters in exile. Both Sunni states are positioning themselves to exert influence over Hamas, even as the group preserves its ties with Shi'ite Iran.

 "The regional calculus has changed," said Shadi Hamid, director of research at the Brookings Doha Center. "This isn't 2008 all over again. Some people say these are symbolic moves, but I think the symbolic and rhetorical go a long way."

 "Under Mubarak, you had mediators who were deemed as sympathetic to one side. Now Egypt has more leverage with Hamas. When Mohamed Mursi says: 'This is what we should be doing,' he is going to be listened to more than Mubarak was," he said.

Smiling and joking, Meshaal reflected his group's growing confidence during a 90-minute encounter with Egyptian journalists on Monday. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanayhu had badly misread the new regional picture, he said. "He wanted to test Egypt, and the Egyptian response was loud and clear.

 He wanted to test the Arab spring, and found the extent of solidarity of the Arab Spring nations with Gaza and its people," he said. Meshaal, installed as the leader of Hamas in 2004 after Israel assassinated the group's wheelchair-bound leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin in Gaza, survived a 1997 Israeli attempt to kill him by injecting him with poison in broad daylight in a street in Amman, the Jordanian capital.

Annonymous defends Gaza's internet access...

During truce talks brokered by Egypt in Gaza, Israel assisinates top Hamas military wing leader thereby killing truce talks and escalating another round of violence not talks...
The Palestinian group Hamas has confirmed that an Israeli air strike has killed the head of its military wing. Ahmed Al-Jaabari, died along with a passenger after their car was hit by a missile on Wednesday while travelling in Gaza city.

He becomes the most senior official of the Islamist faction to be killed since an Israeli invasion of Gaza four years ago.

 Following the assassination immediate calls for revenge were broadcast over Hamas Radio, and the two sides could be on the brink of a new war.

The attack comes despite signs that Egypt had managed to broker a truce following a five day surge of violence which saw 100 missiles fired by Palestinian militants to which Israel responded.

Israel's Shin Bet domestic intelligence service said it had carried out the attack due to what it called Jaabari's "decade-long terrorist activity" It said it hoped to "severely impair the command and control of the Hamas leadership."

Israel tests out both its Pillar of Defence and Egypt's response, killing dozens of civilians, including children with their "pin point" action.

The Cedars of lebanon Dalida Phoenicia

Brief History of Lebanon Phoenicia, as an ancient civilization in Canaan which covered most of the western, coastal part of the Fertile Crescent. Several major Phoenician cities were built on the coastline of the Mediterranean. The coastal plain of Lebanon is the historic home of a string of coastal trading cities of Semitic culture, which the Greeks termed Phoenicia, whose maritime culture flourished there for more than 5000 years. Ancient ruins in Byblos, Beirut, Sidon, Sarafand, and Tyre.

 Show a civilized nation, with urban centres and sophisticated arts. Present-day Lebanon was a cosmopolitan centre for many nations and cultures. During the Middle Ages, Lebanon was heavily involved in the Crusades. Lebanon was in the main path of the First Crusade's advance on Jerusalem.

 Later, Frankish nobles occupied present day Lebanon as part of the south eastern Crusader States. The southern half of present day Lebanon formed the northern march of the Kingdom of Jerusalem; the northern half was the heartland of the County of Tripoli. The Ottoman Turks formed an empire starting from the 14th century which came to encompass the Balkans, Middle East and North Africa. During the conflict between the Mamluks and the Ottomans, the amirs of Lebanon linked their fate to that of Ghazali, The Baashaa of Damascus. He won the confidence of the Ottomans by fighting on their side at Marj Dabaq and, apparently pleased with the behaviour of the Lebanese amirs, introduced them to Salim the first, when he entered Damascus. Salim the first, moved by the eloquence of the Lebanese ruler Amir Fakhr ad Din (1516--44), decided to grant the Lebanese amirs a semiautonomous status. The Ottomans, through two great Druze feudal families, the Maans and the Shihabs, ruled Lebanon until the middle of the nineteenth century.

The Affair

Attkisson reports that Petraeus hasn't been the only high ranking official to leave his post since the Benghazi assault.

Gen. Carter Ham is in the process of stepping down as commander of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM). He was in charge of U.S. military operations in Libya and the surrounding region on that night. The Pentagon has called the move a matter of routine succession.

The Navy has replaced Charles Gaouette, the Rear Admiral who commanded the USS Stennis aircraft carrier Strike Group in the Middle East due to recent allegations of "inappropriate leadership judgement," which were not otherwise described.

Paula Broadwell, meanwhile, has made no public comment on the affair since the news broke, or on her comments in Colorado regarding Benghazi.

CIA Director, General David Petreaus resigns, claiming an extra maratial affair?

Now that Elizabeth Warren has won a seat in the senate by defeting Scott Brown, it is unlikely that Obama will select Sen John Kerry for head of the State Dept, replacing Hillary, because there would be the risk that Scott Brown would run and win that seat, thereby making the senate 50-50 Dem and Republican.

Now the Obama admin will try to rehabilitate our Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice.

BTW, who in the world believes the Petreaus resignation is not about the Bengazi Affair
General betrayal: the CIA, the murder of Ambassador Stevens and the return of Iran-Contra

If you believe ex-General David Petraeus, freshly sacked ex-Director of the CIA, quietly resigned because he was caught with his pants down once too often, then you have fallen for the biggest cover-up in US politics since the Iran-Contra scandal back in the 1980s.

Once again we have the same old mix of shunting illegal arms shipments around the world to suit US policies and objectives. Once again, playing both ends against the middle. Once again, convoluted CIA plotting and scheming that was bound to end badly. And yet again, blatant lying to the American people and the Congress to conceal a scandal of multiplying and increasingly dangerous dimensions.

Petraeus resigned precipitately on the eve of testifying to Congress on the circumstances of the bloody assassination of J. Christopher Stevens, US ambassador to Libya, on the 9/11 anniversary this year. Stevens was allegedly attacked by a so-called crowd of maddened jihadists at the embassy’s offshoot consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.

This is a contrived smokescreen concocted to conceal the fact that Obama not only knew the truth about the events in Benghazi, he personally refused to order military re-enforcements despite multiple requests from US officials both on the ground and in Washington
On September 27, 2012, three days after the attack, mainstream media broadcast a report that full-scale military assistance to the embattled consulate had been denied. We also know that commanders of US forces in Tripoli, who could have easily intervened, received orders from the highest levels in the Pentagon to stand down.

There is no great mystery there. The United States goes to great lengths to obscure the presence and strength of US military forces on the ground in Libya.

The ambassador was taken out –‘erased’ in common secret service parlance – because he was the lynchpin of an extraordinary conspiracy to shuttle high-powered arms looted from former Libyan government stockpiles, through the rag tag band of US-backed rebels who overthrew the Gadaffi regime, thence onwards –via Turkey – to America’s stooge freedom fighters struggling to sabotage the Assad regime in Syria.

Benghazi was the nerve center of the entire scheme, and Stevens the controlling spider in the web. Patently, he was hugely and deliberately exposed to danger. The consulate was protected by locally-hired militia belonging to the ‘February 17 Martyrs Brigade’ on the specious bureaucratic grounds it was not an embassy, and so did not qualify for the usual Marine protection.

The ambassador was spending an unusually large amount of time in a region of Libya known to be volatile – yet he didn’t qualify for armed protection

Protection never came.

Yes, given a nut and bolt or two, this is Iran-Contra all over again. Out of the way Benghazi was the operations center of the CIA-managed plan to shunt Libyan arms (ground-to-air missiles, high powered rocket grenades, artillery shells) to the main Turkish Aegean port of Iskenderun.

From there, convoys under the direct control of the Turkish High Command escorted the weapons to the Syrian border. One documented shipment accounted to 400 tons of crated weapons.

In a moment I will come to the mysterious business of the Turkish military jet supposedly shot down by Syrian anti-aircraft fire earlier this year, which bears a direct connection to the Benghazi business.
According to various reports (Wall Street Journal, Daily Telegraph, repeated in numerous European media organs), Libyan rebels were paid to steal arms from ex-government dumps. Weapons that did get into the hands of the rebels were re-purchased, using secret CIA slush funds – the ‘black money’ – which is never disclosed to Congress.

We learn that here is a strikingly similar parallel to the Iran-Contra arms-go-round mastermind, the Naval Marine Corps Lt.-Col Oliver North. In that infamous affair of mid-1980s, the US covertly paid the fundamentalist regime of Ayatollah Khomeini – then at war with the current US ally of convenience Iraq – for shipments of weapons, delivered to the Right-wing Contra terrorists engaged in a struggle against the popular Nicaraguan government.

Petreaus was expected to testify at a congressional hearing, next week, looking into the killing of our Ambassador to Lybia, Stevens, in the attack on the US Consulate in Bengazi. Reportedly, now that Petreaus has resigned, he will not testify. UPDATE: Petraeus has testified.

FBI agents on the case expected that Petraeus would be asked to resign immediately rather than risk the possibility that he could be blackmailed to give intelligence secrets to foreign intelligence agencies or criminals.

In addition, his pursuit of the woman could have distracted him as the CIA was giving Congress reports on the attack on the Benghazi consulate on Sept. 11. The CIA ‘s reporting to Congress included a claim that protests over a YouTube video played a role in the attacks, thus allowing Obama to initially discount the possibility that the U.S. had suffered another terrorist attack just before the election.

In contrast, based on real time video and reports, the State Department was reporting that the attack that led to the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, was terrorist-related.

The State Department reported that there were no protests at the consulate.

Still, the White House, with concurrence by the FBI and Justice Department, held off on asking for Petraeus’ resignation until after the election.

His resignation occurred three days after the election, avoiding the possibility that Obama’s ill-fated appointment of Petraeus could become an issue in the election.

FBI agents on the case were aware that such a decision had been made to hold off on forcing him out until after the election and were outraged. “The decision was made to delay the resignation apparently to avoid potential embarrassment to the president before the election,” an FBI source says. “To leave him in such a sensitive position where he was vulnerable to potential blackmail for months compromised our security and is inexcusable.”

Michael Kortan, the FBI’s assistant director for public affairs, said he had no comment.

FBI agents were pursuing what they thought was a potential cybercrime, or a breach of classified information.

Instead, the trail led to what officials said were sexually explicit emails between two lovers, from an account Mr. Petraeus used a pseudonym to establish, and to the destruction of Mr. Petraeus's painstakingly crafted image as a storied Army general.

Mr. Petraeus admitted to an affair in a letter to CIA employees announcing his resignation.
In the aftermath of the investigation, some lawmakers are aiming criticism at the FBI and the Obama administration, including Attorney General Eric Holder, who knew about the email link to Mr. Petraeus as far back as late summer. A House Republican leader also learned of the matter in October. Some argue that Mr. Petraeus shouldn't have resigned; others said that the FBI should have formally notified Congress earlier.

The top Senate Democrat on intelligence issues said Sunday she would investigate the FBI's handling of the inquiry, and why the matter wasn't shared earlier with Congress

The other 'other woman.'

As questions swirl about the extramarital affair that led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus, the retired general and his biographer, Paula Broadwell, have been quiet about details of their relationship. However, information has emerged about the woman who received the emails from Broadwell that led to the FBI’s discovery of Petraeus’ indiscretion.

A senior U.S. military official identified the second woman as Jill Kelley, 37, who lives in Tampa, Fla., and serves as an unpaid social liaison to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, where the military’s Central Command and Special Operations Command are located.

In a statement Sunday, Kelley and her husband, Scott, said: “We and our family have been friends with Gen. Petraeus and his family for over five years. We respect his and his family’s privacy and want the same for us and our three children.”

Using terrorist tactics, petraeus and mistress avoided a 'paper trail' by not actually sending emails.

In an effort to cover a trail of messages between him and his mistress, former CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus reportedly used a tactic favored by terrorists and teenagers -- communicating via draft e-mail.

Petraeus and Paula Broadwell, the co-author of Petraeus' biography and the woman he was having an affair with, set up private Gmail accounts in order to communicate, the Associated Press reported today. In addition to creating the e-mails under false identities, Petraeus and Broadwell decided to exchange some messages using the draft function, as an added precaution.

Instead of actually e-mailing each other, they would compose and draft messages but not send them. The other person would then log into the same account and read the drafts. This made those messages harder to trace, and the tactic has been used in the past by terrorists and teenagers, an unnamed law enforcement official told the AP.

Apparently, this trick has been around a while. PBS Frontline mentioned it in a 2005 special on terrorist tricks and counter-measures.
Of the dozen people McClatchy asked in Benghazi and Tripoli, only an unarmed 31-year-old security guard who was stationed at the main gate of the consulate on Sept. 11 had heard about a possible second U.S. compound in Benghazi. And he said he didn't know the CIA had been based there.

"All I heard about was a secret building," the guard said, adding that he didn't know where it was. The guard asked not to be further identified, fearing reprisals from extremists for working with Americans.

During an Oct. 26 question-and-answer session at the University of Denver, Paula Broadwell, who's been named as the woman whose affair with CIA Director David Petraeus led to his resignation Friday, told the audience that two Libyan militiamen were being held at the CIA annex and suggested that the attackers were targeting the annex, rather than the consulate.

"Now, I don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually, um, had taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner, and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back. So that's still being vetted," she said
But most here don't believe that. The guard, who stayed around the consulate for the duration of the assault, said he thought that the subsequent attack on the CIA compound happened because the attackers had followed the Americans who were fleeing the consulate to the CIA annex.

"They came to kill Americans," he said.

The assault at the consulate began somewhere between 9:25 and 9:40 p.m. The CIA annex came under fire twice in subsequent hours, according to a timeline released by the CIA. The first attack consisted of what the agency called "sporadic small arms fire and RPG rounds," a reference to rocket-propelled grenades. That assault lasted about 90 minutes, from 11:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.
MY OBSERVATION? Now that the Bengazi Affair, where our Ambassador to Lybia Chris Stevens,  was killed in an attack, is linked to a sensational sex scandal, the MSM is covering it BIG TIME! Please recall that for two months the MSM ignored the attack in Bengazi, and raised no questions ahead of the elections.


LINGERING QUESTIONS: Why was General Carter Hamm relieved from duty in the middle of the Benghazi Incident? Why was Rear Admiral, Charles M. Gauette, head of the John C Stennis carrier group, the Commander of Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 3 recalled?

MY RECOMMENDATION: Create a rule, that applies to all military officers above the grade of Major, and ALL Intellegence agency personell, that they must IMMEDIATELY report ALL their email accounts, including private, secret, etc, to their immediate supervor. And, yes, that includes the NSA.

That's all, folks!

"Syrian Rebels" Slaughter Unarmed People.

The Washington Post actually said these executed men were government soldiers. Not a full uniform between the lot of them, and a subsequent video made by these terrorists even says they are not soldiers! The lies of the West revealed once again. Lies kill. Speak up now for Syria, lest there be no one left when the people in the West behind this turn on you.

 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for an overhaul of Syria's political opposition, pulling U.S. support for the main exile-led group in favor of those fighting President Bashar al-Assad's forces on the front lines. Mrs. Clinton's announcement Wednesday marked a shift of U.S. policy and reflected months of growing American frustration with the Syrian National Council, the Paris-based body initially charged by the West to galvanize opposition to Mr. Assad.

Her comments also suggested a U.S. attempt to forge greater influence over Syria's opposition, which Turkey and the Gulf states, such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia, have most strongly affected. The new initiative is led by Robert Ford, the former U.S. ambassador to Damascus. "This cannot be an opposition represented by people who have many good attributes but have in many instances not been inside Syria for 20, 30 or 40 years," Mrs. Clinton said at a news conference during a visit to Zagreb, Croatia. "There has to be a representation of those who are on the front lines fighting and dying today to obtain their freedom."

U.S. officials said they have increasingly realized that the SNC has become largely irrelevant to the conflict, which is being driven by heavily armed rebel militias. Most of the arms coming to these groups are supplied by the Gulf states and are flowing through Turkey, according to U.S. and Arab officials.

Mrs. Clinton said the State Department had in recent weeks provided to international partners a list of names and organizations that should play a central role in the making of a new organizational structure for the Syrian opposition movement. She said the Obama administration has focused on weeding out groups with Islamist extremist agendas or ties to terrorist groups, such as al Qaeda. "We also need an opposition that will be on record strongly resisting the efforts by extremists to hijack the Syrian revolution," Mrs. Clinton said. "There are disturbing reports of extremists going into Syria and attempting to take over what has been a legitimate revolution against an oppressive regime for their own purposes."

Mrs. Clinton's comments come ahead of a conference Qatar is hosting next week for opposition groups and representatives from the U.S., European Union and key Mideast states. They also come days before a U.S. presidential election in which the issue of U.S. involvement in Syria has become a major issue. ...

 The Turkish city of Antakya, which sits just 12 miles from the border with Syria, is often abuzz with rumors of foreign Sunni fighters who have stopped there on their way to being smuggled into Syria. One self-described “mujahedeen,” meeting for coffee in the café of a four-star hotel in the center of town, had a Tunisian passport and spoke Arabic with a Maghreb accent. He painted his decision to fight in Syria as the next step in a line of armed struggles, including the conflicts in Chechnya and Libya, in which his religious beliefs had led him to take part. “God led me to this,”
 he said. ...

Perhaps one of the most important questions that President Obama should be required to answer is, “What was Ambassador Stevens doing in Benghazi when our 'consulate' was attacked?” And a follow-up question: “Was Ambassador Stevens helping to arm militant anti-American jihadists, including Syrian and Libyan al-Qaeda elements?”

Investigative reporter/bestselling author/radio talk-show host Aaron Klein has reported (see here and here) that according to his Middle East sources, that is precisely what Ambassador Stevens was doing.

This reporter interviewed Aaron Klein, Jerusalem bureau chief for WorldNetDaily, in Appleton, Wisconsin, on October 22 (see video below) , where he appeared at a joint speaking engagement with New Zealand author/researcher Trevor Loudon, author of Barack Obama and the Enemies Within.

Klein emphatically took issue with the numerous media reports that referred to the U.S. compound that was attacked on September 11 as a “U.S. consulate,” and he explained why that distinction is important. “It was not a consulate,” Aaron Klein told The New American. “According to Middle East security officials I talked to, this was a major meeting point — I would say the central meeting point — for the American diplomats, including Christopher Stevens, the U.S. Ambassador who was killed, to meet with officials of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, about supplying the opposition in Syria and Libya.

Well, who is the opposition? In Libya, the opposition openly included jihadists, included al-Qaeda elements. In Syria, right now, the al-Qaeda elements are leading the opposition.... According to the different sources I spoke to, what we have here is a U.S. policy of arming rebels, knowing or not knowing — but I can’t understand how they would not know — that many of these rebels are jihadists.”


BEIJING, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- "We've made it clear that the SNC can no longer be viewed as the visible leader of the opposition," U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said during a visit to Croatia on Wednesday, demanding a reshuffle of Syria's opposition leadership.

The proposed major shakeup, sidelining the Istanbul-based opposition Syrian National Council (SNC) that the U.S. has previously fully supported, shows the West's tactics on Syria are in disarray and it is now scrambling to find other proxies.

The U.S., which didn't bother to seek truth on the ground and hastily bolstered the SNC, has just found the proxy disappointing and withdrawn its support. It's like slapping its own face.

The U.S. currently is shifting its favor to other opposition forces. But the fresh attempt is likely to fail once again, as it hasn't addressed the root cause of the chronic crisis and suggested a political solution to the impasse.

Since the conflict broke out 20 months ago, the West has doggedly demanded the departure of President Bashar al-Assad, ignoring the varying strength of Syria's different factions.

Forces loyal to Assad have fought head-to-head with rebels and the peace process is nowhere in sight. It is estimated that more than 32,000 lives have vanished in the unrest. With the turmoil continuing, the four-day truce for Eid al-Adha initiated by Arab-U.N. peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi, which was supposed to be a starting point for restoring peace, has also disappointingly unraveled.

Past experience shows foreign intervention and the blunt call for Assad's ouster hasn't reined in the raging violence, but has precipitated the country into deeper chaos.

Washington apparently still hasn't abandoned its old interventionist mindset, which will once again lead to a dead end. The West shouldn't support one side to wipe out the other side, because it will beget severe consequences.

Even Clinton isn't sure about Syria's future, supposing the rebels can defeat the Assad camp. She said Wednesday it was no secret that many in Syria, especially minority groups, are fearful about the prospects of Assad's government being replaced by the Sunni-led opposition.

"They have no love lost for the Assad regime but they worry, rightly so, about the future," she said.

For the West, the only right approach is to genuinely support a political and diplomatic solution to the crisis. China, together with Russia and some other countries, has been unswervingly supportive of the political efforts by the international envoy Brahimi and has been urging other parties to also play a constructive role.

Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi on Wednesday elaborated on China's four-point proposal on the conflict, urging all parties in Syria to cease fire and violence and begin a political transition at an early date. The West needs to understand a political solution deserves patience and time.


BOMBSHELL! Obama Refused To Rescue Ambassador Stevens

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered additional security for the U.S. mission in Benghazi ahead of the terrorist attack but the orders were never carried out, according to "legal counsel" to Clinton who spoke to best-selling author Ed Klein. Those same sources also say former President Bill Clinton has been "urging" his wife to release official State Department documents that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya, which would almost certainly result in President Obama losing the election.

According to sources on the ground during the attack, the special operator on the roof of the CIA annex had visual contact and a laser pointing at the Libyan mortar team that was targeting the CIA annex. The operators were calling in coordinates of where the Libyan forces were firing from. .

Saudi Jihadists Sing al Qaeda Songs Amid al Qaeda Flags In Syria!

Who are the rebals in Syria? Assad says they are al Qaeda. Are they?

Published on Oct 29, 2012 by Eretz Zen

In an Eid al-Adha demonstration in Banash, Syria (Idlib province) that took place on October 27, 2012 and organized by the supporters of Jabhat an-Nusra (al-Qaeda in Syria) branch of the "Free Syrian Army" (FSA), Saudi Jihadis sing a "song" that goes like this:

"If they call me a 'terrorist', I would say: 'It is an honor for me'
Our terror is praised, with a divine calling

Our prince, the Mullah, did not forsake his religion
All the soldiers have sold their souls to Allah

Our leader bin Laden, America's instiller of fear
With the power of faith and our weapons

We destroyed America with a civilian plane
World Trade Center tomorrow, a pile of rubble

 A band of Nusayris (Alawites)
We came to slaughter all of you"

This is what the West, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey are funding in Syria. These are the type of people who are supposed to bring democracy, freedom, and modernity to Syria, the type of people who embrace Saudi Jihadis boasting about 9/11 and calling Osama bin Laden as their leader.

Are those the people that Americans share their "values" with?

On the day he was killed, US Ambassador Stevens met with his counterpart from Turkey, to complete arangements for a covert arms shipment to Jihadists inside Syria, thru a port in Turkey. These arms, 4 tons of them, arrived in the port in Turkey, where they were smuggled into Syria. .
