"Britain’s Secret Service Bureau; foundation, changes, sabotage activities" (PressTV-Iran)

There is too much of this stuff to post everything, but Iran, as we have noted many times, is obsessed with conspiracies involving England. And how could I resist the graphic that goes with the story?
MI6, also referred to as the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), is responsible for providing the British government with foreign intelligence.

Its activities include a variety of secret political exploit triumphs, including the overthrow of Iran’s first democratically-elected government of late Mohammed Mossadeq in 1953 (in collaboration with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency).

Britain’s spying apparatus MI6 has also been training, supporting and funding anti-Iran terrorist group-lets such as Jundallah headed by executed Abdolmalek Rigi, the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), the Kingdom Assembly, and PJAK, all of them have their offices based in London, according to documents even revealed by the British media outlets.

Meanwhile, the assassination of some of Iran’s prominent nuclear scientists can be traced back to London. Two years before the start of the intelligence operations to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program, John Sawers, the head of MI6, talked about the ineffectiveness of U.S.-led sanctions imposed on Iran. A few weeks later, Iranian nuclear scientists including Majid Shahriari were assassinated. Moreover, some elements behind the 2009 sedition in Iran have turned up in Britain.

MI6’s other operations include the joint overthrowing of Patrice Lumumba in the Congo, during the year 1961, and the commencement of an internal disagreement between Lebanese paramilitary groups in the second half of the 1980s, that successfully distracted them from further captive takings of Westerners in the area.

British fiends!

"Israel secretly targeting US war veterans" (PressTV-Iran)

Gordon Duff's latest conspiracy, and it has everything: Nancy Pelosi, Janet Napolitano, and that mother of all shadowy puppet-master groups: the Brentwood Homeowners Association! This is too long and rambling to adequately excerpt, but here are a few nibbles. The feast itself requires you to actually give PressTV some web traffic. I won't be offended if you are disinclined to do so.
This week, American war veterans in Los Angeles await a court decision that would return the Veterans National Home to them. The land had been stolen from them by gangsters and politicians, two groups most Americans now know are one and the same. However, they fear the judge is under pressure from powerful anti-veteran groups now clearly identified as Israeli-based. [...]

A powerful organization, organized crime figures, AIPAC, the ADL and JDL, aided by Senator’s Feinstein and Boxer and Representatives Waxman and Pelosi, have declared war on America’s homeless veterans. [...]

Every one of these developers are Israeli citizens. All have long-time ties to the Meyer Lansky “Murder Incorporated” gang that was the real “Mafia.” They are alive and well today, many safely settled in Israel, others still in America. This same organization, the one at war with America’s veterans, the “Old Guard” and “Veterans Today,” put Bush (43) in office, made billions when the World Trade Center was demolished on 9/11, made trillions during the bailouts and market crash and, of course, started the Iraq and Afghan wars and are manipulating the slaughter in Syria and Egypt.

"US, Israel engineer crimes in Muslim countries: Iran official" (PressTV-iran)

Another float in the endless parade:
Chief of Staff of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the United States and Israel are running a think tank which programs criminal acts in Muslim countries including Egypt and Syria.

“Leaders of the US and Zionist regime [of Israel] are fanning the flames of conflicts in Egypt and Syria, and do not let people and governments in these countries decide their own fate,” Mohammad Mohammadi Golpayegani said on Sunday.

He condemned the recent crimes in Syria and Egypt, saying they are incompatible with Islamic teachings.

“Plans for all crimes in Syria and Egypt are made by the US and Zionist leaders and submitted to their mercenaries. The instruments of these crimes are ignorant and spiteful commanders and rulers in certain Muslim countries,” the official stated. [...]

"Who dares threaten united Islamic world?" (PressTV-Iran)

Who wants to "bully" the "Islamic world"? The Zionist entity, of course. This is a nice example of Iranian paranoia:
As the Middle East seems engulfed in a never-ending cycle of violence, with further reports of bloodshed coming from Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and Bahrain, Iran continues to warn against Israel's plot to fragment and divide the region to better assert its own hegemonic power and claim victory over its nemesis, Islam.

While politicians, experts and analysts continue to look at the Middle East through political lenses, speaking of territorial hegemony and a race for control over natural resources, Iran remains clear-headed in its assessment - while Western powers are looking indeed to control the Middle East's incommensurable wealth, it is Islam that Israel seeks to destroy under its boots.

More dangerous in Israel's eyes than any political faction could ever be, Islam's very power, its ability to unite and rally under one flag foreign nations, communities and creeds, is what truly poses a threat to the Israeli regime.

Should the Islamic world ever set aside its differences and stand united under one leadership; strong with several billions of men and women, Islam would pose a challenge far too great to any entity or alliance of entities that threaten it.

Who then could prevent Palestinians from reclaiming the lands of their forefathers? Who would then dare oppose the calls for justice of a nation whose power and numbers far outweigh any others? Just as Muslims are the world's over-repressed and -oppressed, stigmatized and branded “terrorists” for daring express their faith, unity would bring salvation for a broken and divided people.

A lost island amid the Islamic world, Israel is sowing discord far and wide across the region for its survival depends on it.

One has only to look at the war raging against political Islam in the Arab world to understand what really is at stake.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, the last bastion of the independent Islamic world, the only nation that to this day continues to defy the United States of America and its master puppet the the Israeli regime has been branded “the axis of evil.” [...]
The incoherence ray is working nicely.
Ali Larijani, an Iranian philosopher, politician and the current chairman of the Parliament of Iran, warned earlier this month against such a ploy on the part of Israel. He stressed, “Muslims should not allow the occupying regime [of Israel] and other enemies of Islam to create discord and rifts in the Muslim world to serve their own interests.” [...]

Racked by internal conflicts, no countries in the Middle East can claim to oppose the Zionist hegemony, save Iran, the last bulwark against imperialism.
At the end of the article, a short bio of the author, Catherine Shakdam, includes the information that she has written for The Guardian.

"Britain’s Royal Family; Christian or Jewish?" (Mehr News-Iran)

We learn: "Princess Diana the bride of Queen Elizabeth was also born to a Jewish mother and was thus considered a Jew." By whom? By Iran, of course:
It still remains a question for many people in the UK as how a “flight attendant” could marry Queen’s grandson; a fact that although hushed and ignored by British mainstream media, did not manage to skip some media’s attention.

The truth is that the Royal Family’s new bride is a Jew. Although in the wedding ceremony it was pretended that Kate Middleton is Christian but this lady’s family roots show that she is considered a Sephardic Jew from her mother’s side. Moreover the timing of the wedding and the way it was held which was based on Jewish culture verify the evidences.

Kate’s mother was surnamed Goldsmith before marrying Kate’s father. According to Jewish laws if a mother is a Jew, her children will be Jews, too. Therefore Kate Middleton is a Sephardic Jew and her children will be Jews based on the Jewish law.

This gains more significance once we realize that she is stepping in to the Buckingham Palace as the wife of a man who will be not only the king of England but also the Supreme Governor of the Church of England. Sources close to this 30 year-old bride have said that Kate Middleton and her parents would not regularly attend the church service, therefore Church of England decided to baptize and Christianize the new member unofficially and secretly so that her marriage to Prince William could be confirmed.

Nevertheless even being baptized by the bishop of the church cannot prevent Prince William’s son, the next king and the senior governor of the Church of England, from being a Jew as Kate and William’s child will inevitably remain a Jew.

The Jewishness of the members of the Royal family does not end up in just one case, there are others in the British Royal Family who were and are Jews. Princess Diana the bride of Queen Elizabeth was also born to a Jewish mother and was thus considered a Jew. Therefore her sons William and Harry are also Jews. [...]

In conclusion even if the Royal Family, particularly Kate and William introduce themselves as staunch Christians, since the bride of the family, Princess Diana the wife of Prince Charles , was Jewish, her two sons Harry and William are Jews. On the other hand William’s marriage as the inheritor of the crown to a Jewish girl will leave the future of Britain to the hands of the couple’s Jewish children.

It's a Songun day

Greetings from Palestinian President:
[...] The Palestinian president, in his message, said that he deemed it happiness to extend his sincere and warmest congratulations to Kim Jong Un and, through him, to the government and friendly people of the DPRK on behalf of the State of Palestine, its people and on his own behalf, on the anniversary of the liberation of Korea, hoping that the day would come as early as possible when the progress, prosperity and stability desired by the people of the DPRK are realized.

He reaffirmed that his state would continue to make efforts to develop the good friendly relations between the two countries amid common concern and in the interests of the two peoples. He added that they value the steadfast support extended by Kim Jong Un to the Palestinian people always standing by their side in their struggle to retake freedom and the right to self-determination and create an independent state with east Kuds as its capital, which will be an oasis of security, peace and co-existence. [...]
Co-existence? With whom, I wonder.

"US government targeting Egypt for destabilization, eventual destruction?" (PressTV-Iran)

Did you know that "Israel took over the US via the 9/11 coup d’├ętat"? There's more craziness where that came from, courtesy of Kevin Barrett:
Is the US government targeting Egypt for destabilization - and eventual destruction?

The recent appointment of death squad organizer Robert Ford as US Ambassador to Egypt suggests as much.[...]

The destruction of Iraq through death squads and false-flag terror was so successful that Ford was sent to Syria to do the same thing. In 2011, Ford was made Ambassador to Syria - and suddenly a wave of violence created the same kind of civil war that still rages in Iraq.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has belatedly realized that the violence in his country was created by false-flag terrorists. What happened was this: Ford’s death squads, consisting of well-trained professional killers, would station themselves on rooftops during US-incited anti-Assad demonstrations. At a designated moment, the snipers would begin firing. Some of the snipers would create the appearance that they were Syrian army soldiers firing at the demonstrators. Others, on a different rooftop, would create the impression that they were demonstrators firing at the soldiers.

Soon, the pro- and anti-Assad forces really were firing at each other.

Will Ford organize the same kind of mischief in Egypt?

Based on his record in Iraq and Syria, here is what we should expect: Ford and his team of US death squad organizers and false-flag terror experts (possibly including some of the people who blew up the World Trade Center) will create shootings and bombings blamed on “radical Islamists.” They will then encourage the Egyptian junta to arrest, torture, and murder even more peaceful protestors than it already has. Since the Egyptian military junta is basically an American militia, created and maintained by billions of dollars of US support, the puppet dictator el-Sisi will have to follow American orders... and plunge his country into civil war.

Does the US really want to destroy Egypt, as it has destroyed Iraq and Syria?

Apparently, yes. It is worth noting that the US covertly engineered the overthrow of democratically-elected President Morsi in part because Morsi had spoken out forcefully against Ethiopia’s plan to dam the Nile, steal most of Egypt’s water supply, and condemn much of Egypt's population to slow death.

Bottom line: The US, through its Ethiopian puppet, is planning a genocide that will kill tens of millions of Egyptians. And if any Egyptian leader tries to stop it, as Morsi planned to, he will be eliminated.

Why does the US feel the need to destroy Middle Eastern countries? Ironically, it isn’t even about US interests. It’s about Israel’s “Oded Yinon plan” to annihilate Israel’s neighbors and seize all the land between the Nile and the Euphrates for Greater Israel. That is why, as Gen. Wesley Clark revealed, Israel took over the US via the 9/11 coup d’├ętat - with a plan to destroy “seven countries in five years” in service to Netanyahu’s “Clean Break” document, itself an update of the Oded Yinon plan to destroy the Middle East for Israel.

There is only one way to resist this impending genocide. All Middle Eastern people, regardless of religion or nationality, must unite and resist the Zionist-sponsored destruction of their lands.

"Month of Solidarity with Cuban People Observed in DPRK"

A whole month's worth--that's a lot of solidarity!
A meeting and film show took place at the Taedonggang Diplomatic Club here on Tuesday on the month of solidarity with the Cuban people.[...]

Speaking at the meeting, So Ho Won said that the first gunfire made by the Cuban revolutionaries and patriots in Moncada under the leadership of Fidel Castro Ruz marked a historic occasion in encouraging the Cuban people in the struggle for freedom and liberation.

The Cuban people have won victory by following the road of socialism despite the U.S. political and military pressure and moves for stifling Cuba economically and its subversive activities and sabotage, he noted.

The Korean people will as ever stand in the same trench with the fraternal Cuban people in the just struggle to beat back the U.S. imperialists' moves for aggression and intervention and defend socialism, he added.

The Cuban ambassador said that the international solidarity activities are of great significance now that the imperialists are becoming all the more pronounced in their counterrevolutionary offensive. [...]
Somewhere Stalin is smiling.

PA "pushes back" against Talmudic Hasbara meme that 69-year-old Khazar Settler was killed with axe: It was a resistance implement

Or words to that effect. They did say "A terrorist is someone who forcefully occupies the other's land, expels him and comes to live in his place . . . not the Palestinian political prisoner, the freedom fighter." "Political prisoner"? "Freedom fighter"? Isn't a "political prisoner" someone who did not do anything violent at all? My favorite Mondoweiss sentence of the day:
In a war of words, barbs, and tit for tats it's touche for Palestine doubling down with an injection of truth today.

"200 Turkish Soldiers Dressed as Al Nusra Front Militias Enter Aleppo" (Mehr News-Iran)

According to this "a lot of information is available." Good thing it's well-sourced:
News sources say 150 to 200 Turkish officers and soldiers entered Aleppo while dressed as Al Nusra Front terrorists and they are reportedly planning to target Syrian Kurds.

Alahd News Network reported that a lot of information is available indicating that Turkish forces disguised as Al Nusra Front terrorists entered Aleppo later last night.

Alahd News Network quoted local sources as saying that Turkish forces settled in Bani Zeid region of Sheikh Maqsood and Al-Ashrafiya-two of the main Kurdish districts of Syria.

According to the obtained data, 150 to 200 Turkish officers and soldiers, crossed the Azaz-Kilis border and entered the Syrian territory with their military vehicles and equipment.

Local sources announced that the entering of the Turkish forces in the Bani Zeid region- if confirmed- proves that Al Nusra front and Jaish al Hurr forces have been uniting and collaborating to attack Syrian Kurish districts.

PressTV presents Lyndon Larouche

The man is a Khomeinist's dream:
American political activist Lyndon LaRouche has warned that the continuation of Israeli behavior towards Syria, including the recent air strikes against the Arab country, could end in a US-Russia thermonuclear war . . .

LaRouche, an eight times presidential candidate, said in 2004 that “ the ongoing drive to induce President George W. Bush to launch a war against Iraq, is a 1996 Israeli government policy that is being foisted on the President by a nest of Israeli agents inside the U.S. government.”
Update: The Forward just ran an article from "the founder and current president of the National Iranian American Council" entitled "Why Iranian Leader Hassan Rowhani May Not Be Ahmadinejad II" with the subtitle "The Bogeyman Is Gone — Listen to New Voice in Tehran." I wonder if the folks at the Forward know or care that the "new voice" at PressTV is apparently Lyndon Larouche?

Open Zion on "subtext" of prisoner release: "Your lives—down to and including your very bodies—are under our control."

Here's the paragraph containing that sentence:
When Israel releases Palestinian prisoners, the subtext is entirely of a piece with the subtext of the whole occupation infrastructure: We control your lives. We decide who may go where, and when. We build walls, we issue permits, we arrest, we release. Your lives—down to and including your very bodies—are under our control.
The use of the word "subtext" here means that the author was taught to think like this in college.
