US proposes to let Iran operate fortified nuclear site – reports *(IS THIS THE BEST DEAL THAT MUSLIM OBAMA COULD GET?)*

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 4.16.43 PM

Washington is considering letting Iran operate hundreds of centrifuges at a formerly secret bunker, in exchange for limiting research at other sites, US officials taking part in the nuclear talks in Geneva told AP.

Instead of uranium, any centrifuges permitted at the Fordo facility would work on isotopes used in medicine, science or industry, the officials said. In return, Iran would scale back the number of centrifuges it currently operates at the Natanz facility, and accept inspections and other restrictions.

According to AP, the total number of centrifuges currently operating at Natanz is 10,000. If the leaked proposal is accepted, the combined number of centrifuges at both sites would be under 6,500. The formerly secret site at Fordo, which Iran revealed in 2009, is controversial because it is dug into a mountainside and fortified against air attacks.

Officials, who spoke to AP on condition of anonymity, said the goal since the beginning of the talks was to have the Fordo facility converted “so it’s not being used to enrich uranium.”

All of the proposed options are designed to keep Iran at least a year away from producing a nuclear weapon for the 10-year duration of the agreement, the officials said.

Meanwhile, the White House has said that the US expects “tangible commitments” from Iran, but refused to confirm the agreement would be in writing.

Led by US Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, the negotiators are trying to reach a preliminary agreement before the end of March. Deadline for the final agreement is June 30.

Tehran disclosed the existence of the Fordo Fuel Enrichment Plant, unfinished at the time, to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in September 2009. Iran said the purpose of the facility was the production of uranium enriched up to five percent of U-235, the isotope capable of sustaining a fission reaction. According to the Iranian disclosure, the facility was being built to operate approximately 3,000 centrifuges in 16 cascades. It is dug into the mountainside near the Shia holy city of Qom, 78 miles (125 km) southwest of Tehran.

The extensive facility at Natanz, whose existence was revealed in 2002, is in the Isfahan province, 204 miles (328 km) southeast of Tehran. It is reportedly eight meters (approx. 26 feet) underground and extends over 100,000 square meters, with a capacity of 19,000 centrifuges.

We will continue 20 percent enrichment at Fordo and Natanz to meet our needs,” Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Director Fereydoun Abbasi told the Tehran Times in January 2013, a year after one of the Natanz scientists was killed in a car bombing that Iran blamed on Israel.

The US, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany – known as the “P5+1” – are trying to reach an agreement with Iran to restrict the country’s nuclear program in return for lifting the economic blockade imposed by the UN.

The Obama administration has come under criticism by the Republican-led Congress over the Iran talks. Earlier this month, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu was invited to address Congress without White House approval, and blasted the talks in his speech. Days later, 47 Republican senators sent a letter informing Iran that any deal would be invalid without their approval. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has likewise come under criticism by political opponents who do not trust the US to honor any agreement.

Islam’s Kamikaze Pilots & The Lying Media: A Match Made In Allah’s Hell. What’s To Be Done? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 3.47.09 PM

FOLKS, truthfully, is there a person who can honestly state that he (or she) never met a colleague, neighbor, friend or relative who hasn’t been depressed, especially at a difficult point in their life? But like everything else, some depressions are chronic, while others are fleeting. We get that. 

REGARDLESS, most have a hard time believing that a lock-step media would latch onto this mental health issue as if it is their life-rafts – all in order to avoid a more horrifying truth – which also entails disobeying their leftist masters. Heaven forfend. Cowards.

AGREED, severely depressed people commit suicide (more often than most) and have been known to kill others alongside themselves, including their families. But when was the last time that a so-called depressed individual took down an ENTIRE plane to that end? Never happened. Had this been the case, rest assured, it would have made headlines.

YES, even if certain “sick notes” can “prove” that Andreas Lubitz, the German co-pilot, had bouts of depression, so what? This proves absolutely nothing, other than that he was part of a large pool of people who had depressive thoughts. 

MOVING right along….

THE core issue revolves around the so-called elephant in the room…the monkey on the back…the 800 pound gorilla too. Resultant, this investigative journalist is duty bond to set the (media) record straight:

IN this regard, let’s revert back to a previous commentary, one which this site exposed as the “legacy” of ISLAM’s Kamikazi pilots! But one may rightfully inquire: what does this have to do with the German co-pilot’s take down? Patience, dear readers…

BUT few can argue – aside from the willfully blind and the ideologically malignant – that certain ISLAMIC explosions have more “bang for the buck”, so to speak. In fact, the downing of passenger aircraft has always been their main goal, and they have been working non-stop for a repeat 9/11/01….a “spectacular” attack!

NEUROTMESIS: Cutting the Nerves & Isolating the Head

نيوروتمسيس: قطع الأعصاب وفصل الرأس

In 1999, a Muslim Kamikaze Jihad pilot named Gamil el-Batouty killed 217 people when he commandeered EgyptAir Flight 990 which crashed off the coast of New England. El-Batouty was heard saying several times during the plane’s descent, “I rely on Allah” in Arabic. A 2002 report from the Guardian didn’t point out the possibility that el-Batouty’s religion may have played a role, only that he was seeking revenge for being reprimanded for sexual misconduct.

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 3.48.40 PM

Like Iriyanto, el-Batouty had also been an Air Force pilot for his country. A 2012 article that was published in the Atlantic included the following excerpt:

Experts informed viewers of Egyptian television that it was impossible for el Batouty to have taken his own life because he was a good Muslim and suicide is haram (forbidden) in Islam.

For the record, all 19 hijackers on 9/11 considered themselves “good” Muslims who were committing suicide while killing infidels. As we have learned, the fundamentalist tactic known as Muruna even permits the killing of other Muslims in the process if it serves a greater “good”.

Here is a video which shows a timeline for Flight 990:

What the Evidence Shows

When it comes to modern day Islamic terrorism on western airlines, it can be argued that the modern era began in 1985 with the hijacking of TWA Flight 847. This airline wasn’t commandeered to commit suicide and mass murder; such a tactic hadn’t been implemented yet. Though terrorists took control of the plane, they simply forced the pilot to land in Beirut before making their demands.

While the hijackers did murder a U.S. service member named Robert Stethem before dumping his body off the plane, they didn’t yet have aspirations to be martyred in such operations. There were also survivors.

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 3.53.45 PM

It can therefore be logically concluded that when it comes to modern day Kamikaze jihad, it’s ironic that individuals like Seiji Katagiri can be excluded. He should not be included in the post 1985 era. As for candidates that qualify as modern day Muslim Jihad Kamikazes…

Until more information can be gleaned – which SHOULD be readily available – about Santos Fernandes, it can be assumed that his name does not lend itself to Kamikaze Jihad. Since Fernandes falls within the window of modern day Kamikaze Jihad, his incident shall be considered an outlier. It’s worth noting that since 1994, the only incident of possible pilot suicide / mass murder that doesn’t appear to have a Muslim connection involves Fernandes. He is not on this list primarily because his name indicates he was not a Muslim. However, little is publicly known about him and an Islamic motive cannot officially be ruled out.

BACK to last week’s German jihad….

(Facebook photo, February 2013)

AS discomfiting as it is to western hearts and minds, let’s face some horrifying truths:

WHEN mass shootings occur in the west, it is hardly the case that jihadists proclaim they are direct acts of ISLAMIC jihad on their behalf. While joyful at infidel deaths, even they have to admit that said tragedies are unrelated to ISLAMIC jihad, insistent that the west’s “decadence” is the culprit. No matter, they always feign that they are completely immune from mass murder and related mayhem! We know better….

BE that as it may, Andreas Lubitz was a convert to Islam, as such, we must also recognize that many “newbies” become radicalized to the point that even those born into Islam are, by comparison, considered tame. Yup. Have mercy.

TO wit, let’s cut to the chase:

According to Michael Mannheimer, a writer for German PI-News, Germany now has its own 9/11, thanks to the convert to Islam, Andreas Lubitz.

Translation from German:

All evidence indicates that the copilot of Airbus machine in his six-months break during his training as a pilot in Germanwings, converted to Islam and subsequently either by the order of “radical”, ie. devout Muslims , or received the order from the book of terror, the Quran, on his own accord decided to carry out this mass murder. As a radical mosque in Bremen is in the center of the investigation, in which the convert was staying often, it can be assumed that he – as Mohammed Atta, in the attack against New York – received his instructions directly from the immediate vicinity of the mosque.

Converts are the most important weapon of Islam. Because their resume do not suggests that they often are particularly violent Muslims. Thus Germany now has its own 9/11, but in a reduced form. And so it is clear that Islam is a terrorist organization that are in accordance with §129a of the Criminal Code to prohibit it and to investigate its followers. But nothing will happen. One can bet that the apologists (media, politics, “Islamic Scholars”) will agree to assign this an act of a “mentally unstable” man, and you can bet that now, once again the mantra of how supposedly peaceful Islam is will continue. And worse still, the attacks by the left against those who have always warned against Islam, will be angrier and merciless.

For now the German Islam supporters like never before have their backs against the wall.

Michael Mannheimer, 26.3.2015

The Daily Mail today writes:

Police investigating the Germanwings crash said tonight they had made a ‘significant discovery’ at the home of pilot Andreas Lubitz, who deliberately ploughed the Airbus A320 into the French Alps.

Officers refused to reveal details of the potential breakthrough but said it was not a suicide note.

BOTTOM LINE:

THE question becomes: despite the braying of ISLAMISTS and leftists, will western nations allow Muslim pilots (whether converts or not) to fly for their carriers, be it a major airline or a smaller outfit?

MORE specifically, this western imperative would absolutely involve the dreaded bugaboo, “profiling”. Oh dear…imagine that, a pilot’s religious background should be a consideration for hiring! In other words, while such a safety measure should be as important as any other pre-flight (mechanical) precaution, countless leftists in positions of power would prefer to sacrifice as many westerners as it takes, rather than to dare to question another’s “religious” convictions. Oh, really now?

A lot of profiling restrictions are stupid, but in this case religion is the motivation. Banning profiling of perpetrators by their motives is a sure way of crippling investigations…..

The Justice Department will significantly expand its definition of racial profiling to prohibit federal agents from considering religion, national origin, gender and sexual orientation in their investigations, a government official said Wednesday.

The Bush administration banned profiling in 2003, but with two caveats: It did not apply to national security cases, and it covered only race, not religion, ancestry or other factors.

Since taking office, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has been under pressure from Democrats in Congress to eliminate those provisions.

It is not clear whether Mr. Holder also intends to make the rules apply to national security investigations, which would further respond to complaints from Muslim groups.

“Adding religion and national origin is huge,” said Linda Sarsour, advocacy director for the National Network for Arab American Communities. “But if they don’t close the national security loophole, then it’s really irrelevant.”

The Justice Department has been reviewing the rules for several years and has not publicly signaled how it might change them. Mr. Holder disclosed his plans in a meeting on Wednesday with Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York, according to an official briefed on the meeting who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the conversation was private.

Bloomberg, as bad as he was, might have objected, but Bill de Blasio is on the same page as Holder when it comes to empowering terrorists.

THUS, in the same manner in which a deep background check is requisite due diligence for certain positions, isn’t the fact that pilots are responsible for so many lives a more than qualifying factor? If not, why not? 

AND as to finding this intel out, as to what’s what in said applicant’s background – particularly those whose names miss the (ISLAMIC) mark, similar to the recent convert’s act of jihad – well, there are many qualified agencies whose jobs are to perform this and that background check. But just in case certain outfits need some assistance, just give this site a shout out and high level investigators will be in touch. Promise.

BUT as always, expect the leftist captured media to deny, deny and deny the absolute connection between the German pilot’s devotion to Islam and Kamikaze Jihad.

UNLESS western civilization promptly comes to grips with the growing phenomenon of Muslim Kamikaze Jihad – as should have sunk in, especially after 9/11/01, less than 14 years ago – we must expect an increase in the number of Muslim commercial airline pilots. Guaranteed. Extrapolating further, as that number increases, we can also expect a concomitant increase in the number of Muslim Kamikaze Jihad attacks. A + B…1 + 1…

SIMPLE as that. Deadly.

Fears of a new global crash as debts and dollar’s value rise

As Greece puts the finishing touches to its latest round of cuts, some economists are increasingly alarmed about the signals from the world economy

BY HEATHER STEWART

Greek ministers are spending this weekend, almost five grinding years since Athens was first bailed out, wrangling over the details of the spending cuts and economic reforms they have drawn up to appease their creditors.

As the recriminations fly between Europe’s capitals, campaigners are warning that the global community has failed to learn the lessons of the Greek debt crisis – or even of Argentina’s default in 2001, the consequences of which are still being contested furiously in courts on both sides of the Atlantic.

As Janet Yellen’s Federal Reserve prepares to raise interest rates, boosting the value of the dollar, while the plunging price of crude puts intense pressure on the finances of oil-exporting countries, there are growing fears of a new debt crisis in the making.

Ann Pettifor of Prime Economics, who foreshadowed the credit crunch in her 2003 book The Coming First World Debt Crisis, says: “We’re going to have another financial crisis. Brazil’s already in great trouble with the strength of the dollar; I dread to think what’s happening in South Africa; then there’s Malaysia. We’re back to where we were, and that for me is really frightening.”

Since the aftershocks of the global financial crisis of 2008 died away, the world’s policymakers have spent countless hours rewriting the banking rulebook and rethinking monetary policy. But next to nothing has been done about the question of what to do about countries that can’t repay their debts, or how to stop them getting into trouble in the first place.

Brazil’s already in great trouble with the strength of the dollar; I dread to think what’s happening in South Africa

Ann Pettifor

Developing countries are using the UN to demand a change in the way sovereign defaults are dealt with. Led by Bolivian ambassador to the UN Sacha Sergio Llorenti, they are calling for a bankruptcy process akin to the Chapter 11 procedure for companies to be applied to governments.

Unctad, the UN’s Geneva-based trade and investment arm, has been working for several years to draw up a “roadmap” for sovereign debt resolution. It recommends a series of principles, including a moratorium on repayments while a solution is negotiated; the imposition of currency controls to prevent capital fleeing the troubled country; and continued lending by the IMF to prevent the kind of existential financial threat that roils world markets and causes severe economic hardship.

If a new set of rules could be established, Unctad believes, “they should help prevent financial meltdown in countries facing difficulties servicing their external obligations, which often results in a loss of market confidence, currency collapse and drastic interest rates hikes, inflicting serious damage on public and private balance sheets and leading to large losses in output and employment and a sharp increase in poverty”.

It calls for a once-and-for-all write-off, instead of the piecemeal Greek-style approach involving harsh terms and conditions that knock the economy off course and can ultimately make the debt even harder to repay. The threat of a genuine default of this kind could also help to constrain reckless lending by the private sector in the first place.

However, when these proposals were put to the UN general assembly last September, a number of developed countries, including the UK and the US, voted against it, claiming the UN was the wrong forum to discuss the proposal, which is anathema to powerful financial institutions.

Pettifor shares some of the UK and US’s scepticism. “The problem for me is that the UN has no leverage here,” she says. “It can make these moralistic pronouncements but ultimately it’s the IMF and the governments that make the decisions.”

Nevertheless, Llorenti has been touring the world’s capitals making the case for change, and hopes to bring the issue back for fresh discussions next month.

And while the debate rages, developing countries have been taking advantage of rock-bottom interest rates and the cheap money created by quantitative easing to stack up billions in new debt.

Using recently released World Bank data, the Jubilee Debt Campaign calculates that in 2013 alone – the latest period for which figures are available – borrowing by developing countries was up 40% to $17.3bn.

Brazil’s economy is likely to be seriously tested as the greenback rises; Turkey, Malaysia and Chile have large dollar-denominated debts and sliding currencies; and a string of African countries face sharp rises in debt repayments. Ghana and Zambia have already had to turn to the IMF to ask for help. It’s as if, as Pettifor warns, “absolutely nothing has changed since the crisis”.

The Head Of Sharia Law in Saudi Ordered All Christian Churches Demolished!

Screen Shot 2015-03-27 at 6.29.57 PM

Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, the dictator of the country’s sharia law, has ordered the Saudi government to demolish all of the Christian churches.

According to the report:

Saudi Arabia’s top Muslim cleric called on Tuesday for the destruction of all churches in the Arabian Peninsula after legislators in the Gulf state of Kuwait moved to pass laws banning the construction of religious sites associated with Christianity.

Speaking to a delegation in Kuwait, Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, who serves as the grand mufti of Saudi Arabia, said the destruction of churches was absolutely necessary as it is required by Islamic law.

Screen Shot 2015-03-27 at 6.33.32 PM

Abdullah, is considered the highest official of religious law in the Sunni Muslim kingdom. He also serves as the head of the Supreme

Council of Ulema (Islamic scholars) and of the Standing Committee for Scientific Research.

Last month, Osama Al-Munawer, a Kuwaiti member of parliament, announced plans to submit a law calling for the removal of all churches in the country, according to the Arabian Businesses news site. Al-Munawer later clarified that the law would only apply to new churches, old churches would be tolerated.

This is how they tolerate us…destroying our churches and killing our missionaries. Obama, did you hear that?

Canada: Three Muslims charged with sexual assault of 14-year-old girl *(THESE MUSLIM SAVAGES ARE EVERYWHERE, SITTING NEXT TO YOUR CHILDREN ON A BUS, IN STORES, YOU NAME IT. WAKE UP AMERICA!)*

I have predicted that these Muslim “grooming gangs” would not be limited to Britain, and now here is one in Canada. Not a day goes by in the UK, where islamization is much further along, that these monstrous news stories emerge of sexploitation of non-Muslims by Islamic supremacists. The Brits have 20 years on us, but Obama is working hard to catch up. Expect a lot more of these cases to start popping up in North America — for example, the conviction in Tenneseee a few years ago of three Muslim men:

A Tennessee federal jury split its verdict Friday against nine people accused of operating a sex trafficking ring across three states run mostly by Somali refugee gang members, convicting three men and acquitting six. (FOX)

They won’t be acquitting them for long. Juries in the US have no idea what they are dealing with. The sharia is an ideology that asserts that Muslims are superior to non-Muslims. They think that non-Muslim teenage girls are worthless and can be abused without a second thought. That is the sharia.

“Three men charged with sexual assault of 14-year-old Calgary girl,” by Melissa Ramsay, Global News, March 23, 2015 (thanks to Creeping):

CALGARY – Police have charged three men with the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl last year.

Investigators say the assaults occurred while the victim was spending time with the suspects at a southwest home on May 14th, 2014.

It’s alleged the 14-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by each of the men at separate times.

The allegations were brought forward to police in August of 2014, at which point officers launched an investigation to determine who the offenders were.

Police have charged 22-year-old Abas Ahmed Ibrahim (also known as Maxboy or Moe), 21-year-old Omar Kromah (also known as Nef) and 24-year-old Zakariya Mohamed Abdow (also known as Slickthug or Slimthug) with sexual assault, sexual interference with a child under 16 and invitation to sexual touching.

Investigators are asking anyone who has information about this case to call police.

Anyone who has had sexual contact with the three men is urged to contact a doctor and seek testing for sexually transmitted infections.

Crimea Ready to Deploy Nuclear Weapons Systems on Russian President’s Order

Screen Shot 2015-03-27 at 11.11.12 AM

Crimean head Sergei Aksenov said that Crimea will welcome the deployment of nuclear weapons in the republic if Russian President Vladimir Putin deems it necessary.

SIMFEROPOL (Sputnik) Crimea will welcome the deployment of nuclear weapons in the republic if Russian President Vladimir Putin deems it necessary, Crimean head Sergei Aksenov told Sputnik.

“If there is such an order from the supreme commander, we would support it,” Aksenov said.

On Wednesday, the chair of Russian State Duma Defense Committee, Vladimir Komoyedov, said that needed, Russia was ready to place nuclear weapons in Crimea.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed on Wednesday speculations by US billionaire Donald Trump and the Western media of “nuclear rhetoric” in Putin’s remarks in a documentary on Crimea’s reunification with Russia that was aired last week. The media claimed that Putin had said in the documentary that Russia was ready to put its nuclear forces on alert to protect Crimea and the Crimeans against potential aggression.

Kremlin Dismisses Claims of ‘Nuclear Rhetoric’ in Putin’s Crimea Remarks

Crimea rejoined Russia in March 2014, after 96 percent of the peninsula’s population voted in favor of a reunification deal.

In a speech following the referendum, Russian President Putin pointed out that it was held in full compliance with democratic procedure and international rule of law.

The West has refused to recognize the results of the vote, labeling Crimea’s secession an “annexation,” and have introduced several rounds of economic sanctions against Moscow.

Reported concessions could kill Iran deal in Washington

Screen Shot 2015-03-27 at 10.56.14 AM

BY CHARLES HOSKINSON

Negotiations with Iran over limiting its nuclear program appeared close to agreement Thursday, but the reported outlines of a possible deal contained concessions by international negotiators expected to make it politically unpalatable in Washington.

The Associated Press reported that the United States is considering letting Iran run several hundred centrifuges used to enrich uranium at Fordow, a heavily fortified underground site near the Shiite holy city of Qom that Iran kept secret from international inspectors until it disclosed the facility in 2009. In exchange, Iran would reduce the number of centrifuges it operates elsewhere and would use those at Fordow to enrich elements other than uranium.

The United States and its partners in the P5+1 group — Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China — had wanted the facility shut down.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. and its negotiating partners at the talks which resumed Friday in Lausanne, Switzerland, are scaling back demands that Iran come clean on its past nuclear research, which included attempts to develop a nuclear weapon, to overcome Tehran’s refusal to do so.

Both moves could make any deal unable to achieve its main goal of preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, according to experts, who say those and other concessions, particularly any walkback of demands that Iran come clean on past weapons work, will make verification impossible.

“It is going to require a very intrusive verification system, and it’s unclear whether that can be accomplished,” David Albright, president of the Institute for Science and International Security, who has been advising the Obama administration on the issue, told a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee Tuesday.

Any concession that weakens the ability to verify that Iran’s nuclear program is solely peaceful would make an agreement dead on arrival in Congress, which is already likely to vote to force Obama to submit the deal to lawmakers for approval.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, tweeted out a link to the AP report with the comment “Not a good deal.”

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is set to vote April 14 on legislation that would require congressional approval of a deal and tie the relief from U.S. sanctions demanded by Iran to that process. Supporters expect it to pass soon after by a majority large enough to overcome Obama’s expected veto.

“If today’s news report from Lausanne is true, we are not inching closer to Iran’s negotiating position, but leaping toward it with both feet,” said Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, the panel’s ranking Democrat. “My fear is that we are no longer guided by the principle that ‘no deal is better than a bad deal,’ but instead we are negotiating ‘any deal for a deal’s sake.'”

In the House, 367 lawmakers — 77 more than a veto-proof majority — signed a March 20 letter to Obama saying that their willingness to lift U.S. sanctions depends on them being convinced that an agreement prevents Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

“Members of Congress have made it clear that Iran’s past bomb work must be disclosed if a deal is to have any credibility.” said House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce, R-Calif.
