Cult of the Kadeisha (for Goyim)

Ha'aretz: Cult suspected of prostituting women 'to save Israel'

Judea and Samaria District Police arrested eight people yesterday who are suspected of leading a cult that forced women into prostitution and took sexual advantage of them when they were under the influence of drugs and alcohol.  

The suspects allegedly told the women they had to have sex with non-Jewish men “to save the Jewish people and expedite the redemption.”

Jerusalem online: David Dvash is the cult leader arrested in Kiryat Arba

The investigation further suggests that the cult members believed that Israel's redemption will come by means of what they refer to as "sparks" – sexual relations with non-Jews...

"A young woman who was hurt addressed me, a woman that wasn’t prepared to speak with anyone before", Lehava activist Anat Goferstein said. "We spoke for a long time, she told me of a cult which draws women and forces prostitution on them, mostly with non-Jews, foreigners, immigrants. All was done under a cover pertaining to Jewish law, under strong religious belief and self-annulment of the woman so that her personality was completely erased. He would stand over and take pictures, and they found a religious explanation for that as well".

Israel National News: Cult Arrested for Sexually Abusing Women to 'Bring Messiah'

The Lehava anti-assimilation group led Judea and Samaria branch police in exposing an extremist Messianic cult that brain-washed Jewish women into taking drugs and having sex with Arab men in order to "bring the redemption."...

Lehava leaders Bentzi and Anat Gopshtain on Sunday revealed they exposed the cult and passed evidence to the police, after receiving complaints several months ago against a Kiryat Arba resident manipulating women from around Israel, encouraging them to have sexual relations with Arabs...

"We in the Lehava organization don't turn a blind eye, even in the case of a Jew pretending to be religious," said Gopshtain on Sunday. "We didn't hesitate to act for the sanctification of the nation of Israel."

"This is a shocking incident and we didn't rest or stay silent until the leader of the cult was arrested," added the Lehava director. "A phenomenon like this must be gotten rid of."

Headlines of note for September 2014 [updated Sept. 22]...

We begin with some dated headlines, revisiting previous Septembers. This month in recent history has been rife with terror attacks not just for the USA, but for Russia.

Some suggest western backing for these attacks, in the form of logistic, material and "moral" support and protection of Chechen rebels...

Blowing Up Russia: Terrorism From Within -Written and directed by Yuri Felshtinsky and Alexander Litvinenko.

We know what happened to Litvinenko in London in November of 2006. What is less known however is the connection that Litvinenko had with MI6...

Independent (Nov. 29, 2013): Murdered spy Alexander Litvinenko gave MI6 secret briefings about key ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin

Guardian (Dec. 14, 2012): Alexander Litvinenko accusation puts MI6 in an unflattering light

Litvinenko's widow, Marina, articulated her belief that MI6 failed to protect him. Her counsel, Ben Emmerson, said: "Mr Litvinenko had been for a number of years a regular and paid agent and employee of MI6 with a dedicated handler whose pseudonym was Martin."

Or of his conversion to Islam and support of Chechen separatists...

Wayne Madsen Report: December 4, 2006 -- New wrinkle in Litvinenko murder

The following dispatch came from the Chechenpress.org, a Chechen news web site, on November 24 [2006]:

The communication from London the day before at night arrived to us of the poisoning and passing away of Aleksandr Litvinenko. A. Litvinenko it was poisoned on 1 November. Doctors struggled for the life of A. Litvinenko, however, it was impossible to save him. Meanwhile, a while back Litvinenko accepted Islam and all Moslem rites were carried out before his death. A specially invited mullah read over the dying Litvinenko the 'Sura Yasin' [key passage from the Koran]. Aleksandr Litvinenko will be buried in a Moslem cemetery, with the observance of all proper rituals. Nearing death, and understanding that his killers are Putin and his criminal clique, Aleksandr Litvinenko requested to transmit to the Mujahadeen of Chechnya and Caucasus that they understand him as their brother in the weapon [emphasis added] and he requested to the Most High Allah for themselves the future of martyr (insha Allah)."

The Chechen press release reference to "the weapon" may have been hinting at a project to build a radioactive "dirty bomb" by Litvinenko. London's Observer surmised as much in a December 3 report: "Among the theories that remain open is that the poisonings were an accident that happened while Litvinenko tried to assemble a dirty bomb for Chechen rebels. Those who know him believe he was crazy enough to attempt such a thing and, in the past week, some have implicated him in the smuggling of nuclear materials from Russia."

Given his contacts with MI-6 and his support of Chechen rebels, and "crazy enough" to have possibly attempted the development of a dirty bomb, the question is raised as to what Litvinenko may have known about the Beslan school massacre of ten years ago this month...

WMR: October 31, 2007 -- NSA "Went Dark" on Caucasus Region Hours Before Beslan Attack

According to sources at the National Security Agency (NSA), hours before a group of Chechen separatists took 1200 children and adults hostage at a school in Beslan, in the Russian republic of North Ossetia-Alania, NSA intercepts of INMARSAT (International Maritime Satellite) and cell phone traffic in the region “went dark.” Analysts at NSA and the Medina Regional SIGINT Operations Center (MRSOC) in San Antonio, Texas had been monitoring cell phone and INMARSAT phone traffic in Beslan but all communications intercepts of traffic suddenly ceased...

...Russia linked some of the hostage takers to Islamist exiles in London, where the now much-adored former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko was assisting Russian-Israeli mobster/tycoon Boris Berezovsky to help Chechen and other anti-Russian forces to help topple the Putin government in Moscow. Litvinenko later died from polonium poisoning, an act blamed on Putin but appears to have been a Russian-Israeli mafia hit designed to eliminate an uncomfortable witness to dubious and illegal activities by the Russian-Israeli mafia based in London, Tel Aviv, and New York...

The fact that the NSA’s sophisticated surveillance platforms “went dark,” in an unprecedented manner, on unencrypted South Ossetia and Caucasus regional communications shortly before the Beslan incident indicates that high-level parties knew of the attack in advance and did not want NSA intercepts to yield the identities of the terrorist planners and leaders.

WMRBeheading videos, SITE, and journalist "freedom fighters"

For the second time in a little over two weeks, a video of the beheading by a British-accented Islamic State jihadist of a U.S. journalist captured in Syria was distributed by the same organization. The most recent video images of orange jump suit-clad U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff being beheaded were released by the Search for International Terrorist Entities or "SITE," which also initially discovered and released the video beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley of GlobalPost.com.

As with the Foley video, U.S. intelligence initially refrained from validating the authenticity of the Sotloff video until it completed an examination of the Sotloff video. Obviously, the CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies are well-versed on SITE's Israeli pedigree. As previously revealed by WMR, SITE is a Washington, DC-based research institute with links to Israeli right-wing Likud elements and Mossad. SITE is operated by Israeli intelligence asset Rita Katz and was also the source for a number of dubious videos of Osama Bin Laden, including one that only showed the Al Qaeda's lips moving but the rest of his body inanimate. In 2008, SITE released a video purportedly of Al Qaeda's number two, Ayman al Zawahiri. A number of experts determined the video was a fake...

WMRISIL/ISIS: Another contrivance brought to you by Mossad, MI6, and the CIA - Part II

There is every indication that ISIL has significant links to Israel. Although there are claims to the contrary, ISIL absorbed most of the ranks of the Al Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra (Al Nusra Front) Islamist insurgent group in Syria. Al Nusra Front has coordinated its seizure of Syrian army positions along the Golan Heights border with the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). Rather than hit back at Al Nusra positions on the Syrian side of the Golan frontier, the Israelis attacked Syrian army positions, giving a boost to the Syrian campaigns of Al Nusra in particular and ISIL in general. There are reports that the Israeli military has been given the coordinates of Syrian army and Hezbollah forces, as well as "Committees for the Defense of the Homeland" militia forces of Alawites, Shi'as, Christians, and Druze, by Al-Nusra/ISIL to launch missile and drone attacks from the Israeli side of the border...

And Turkey...

Al Monitor (translation from Turkish Radikal): Notes from Erdogan-Obama meeting revealed

“The President [Barack Obama] demanded Turkey truly join in the struggle against the Islamic State in an effective manner. But [Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan resisted, saying the Islamic State can carry out sabotage in Turkey and that there are 40 Turkish citizens held hostage in their [IS] hands.

“We know that Barzani offered to evacuate these people but was turned down by the Turkish side. It is still not clear who was behind the Reyhanli bombings of May 2013. It is understood that the Erdogan regime is using these two issues as pretexts to avoid taking action.

“Even before there was the issue of hostages, Islamic militants, mainly [the] Islamic State, for years freely shuttled back and forth over the Iraq-Syria and Turkey borders. This is not because the border supervision is difficult but because of the persistence of the Erdogan administration to topple Assad, who had been hurting the Muslim Brotherhood, which has empowered Turkey in the Middle East. To that end, Islamic fighters, including the Islamic State, were allowed to use Turkey as a logistics base for years.

“As part of this policy, Erdogan armed Islamic militants in a move coordinated by the MIT [Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization]. Weapons and explosives found on captured Islamic militants were marked MKE, Turkey’s state-owned industrial corporation. Turkish security forces several times stopped MIT trucks carrying weapons to Syria but the prosecutors, police and gendarmerie that stopped the trucks were reassigned and even put on trial on charges of spying. Although the government said these trucks were carrying humanitarian assistance, the trials are still held secretly.

“In addition to weapons assistance, Islamic casualties are immediately sent to Turkey where they get official care. After rest and recuperation these fighters return to the battlefield.

“The President [Obama] told Erdogan that it is crucial for this support to cease immediately and definitively."

Editors note: On the subject of Israel, we would guess that in the past week we have had more than a few visitors browsing from this country, drawn particularly to our Cult of the Kadeisha post. What is odd however is that our traffic source stats shows not a single hit from Israel, in spite of the popularity of the article (relative to our usual traffic). Meanwhile, Turkey is exploding - where English speakers are far and few in between relative to, say, Israel where English is a second language. Turkey at present is giving us far more hits than even our native U.S. Here is how it breaks down:

Turkey 183
United States 67
France 54
Egypt 19
India 13
Germany 12
Algeria 8
United Kingdom 7

Netherlands 4

This leads us to speculate; does Israel cover its internet browsing tracks, falsely ascribing hits to Turkey instead?

Global Post (James Foley archive): Inside Gaddafi's Libya

Wayne Madsen ReportGlobal Post, the employer of freelancer James Foley, fails to pass smell test

The media operation has not been around long. It was initiated on January 12, 2009, a week before the inauguration of Barack Obama as president, by two Boston businessmen, Charles Sennott and Philip Balboni. The new website claimed it was going to “redefine international news for the digital age.” Originally charging an annual subscription of $199 a year, Global Post cut its annual rate to $30 a year, which has been WMR’s unchanged annual subscription rate since 2005. However, Global Post’s subscribers’ base only stood at around 400. Yet, Global Post could boast of 65 worldwide correspondents, albeit, many of whom, like Foley, were freelancers. But how does an on-line media with subscribers only in the hundreds manage to finance reporters in war zones like Syria and Libya while maintaining a worldwide network of correspondents?

Global Post, with its lackluster business revenues, was able to cut syndication agreements with the Public Broadcasting System (sometimes mockingly referred to as the “Pentagon Broadcasting System”), the Sumner Redstone-owned CBS, and the Mort Zuckerman-owned New York Daily News. Oddly, just two years after its start-up, Global Post had garnered Peabody, Polk, and Edward R. Murrow awards for its “On Location” video coverage. Clearly, someone wanted to increase Global Post’s street credentials through an “award washing” campaign....

Owned by Global News Enterprises, LLC and headquartered on Boston’s affluent waterfront, Global Post’s board of directors and management includes those who have had only a glancing encounter with actual journalism: former cable television executives, a former chairman of C-SPAN, a former member of the board of The Boston Globe, a former publisher of The Boston Globe, an assistant to the CEO of the Hearst Corporation, a public relations flack for PBS, and a board member of the Boston public television station WGBH.

But even more suspicious is the presence on the staff of Global Post of two former editors for The Cambodia Daily, a CIA-connected publication officially owned by Cambodian orphanage “aficionado” Bernard Krisher; a former senior correspondent for the CIA- and Soros-linked Radio Free Europe in Prague; a graduate of the CIA-linked Sasin Business Institute in Bangkok; a former Boston Globe Jerusalem bureau chief, a former editor for the CIA-connected Tico Times of Costa Rica, and a former editor for the hard-neocon publication The Atlantic. Global Post’s team of international correspondents are steeped in neocon credentials, from The Daily Beast and Kyiv Post to The New Republic and The Daily Telegraph...

Steve Pieczenik (citing NYTimes): Proper Rules Regarding Hostage Rescue and Hostage Survival...

In the NYTimes article entitled, “Before Killing James Foley,  ISIS Demanded Ransom From U.S.”,  (posted earlier) written by Rukmini Callimachi, the following  most revealing paragraph appears about James Foley’s death wish:

“Across the ocean at his home in Cambridge, Mass, the chief executive of GlobalPost Mr. Balboni, reached for his Blackberry and had a TERRIBLE SENSE OF FOREBODING [my emphasis]: The email informing him of Mr Foley’s abduction was almost an exact replay of the horrors his staff had endured a year earlier when Foley was kidnapped with three others by Col. Muammar El Qaddafi’s forces in Libya.”

 Let’s review what happened in Libya:

 “We had joked that we needed to take away his (Foley’s) passport, Mr Balboni said Wednesday. “I don’t want to say it was deja vu but in a way it was…in one way I knew what was coming.” Not only did James Foley put himself purposefully in harms way but he also compromised Mr Balboni and the integrity of his journal and it’s financial viability.  Mr Balboni and countless other individuals spent millions of dollars and thousands of hours to rescue James Foley from Libya.  In return for their collective “good-will” Foley returned to the mundane job of being an editor for the journal (desk job) in Cambridge Mass...

Just like a physician, the state dept and military must be able to triage whom they can afford to save and who they must let go.  Needless to say, not every hostage deserves to be saved.  Unless that hostage is sponsored by a large organization that can afford to pay ransom then asking the USG to send in Intelligence Officers and Special Forces to save a potential hostage would bankrupt us and endanger the lives of others.

If for reasons unknown, James Foley worked for some organization other than the stated one, the triage applies doubly for any overseas operatives who have been taught how to avoid these types of precarious situations...

Attempts to divide and channel the rage with the race-card have not been entirely successful - perhaps in part because the case is egregious enough to generate outrage across racial and ideological lines - but thanks in large part to an over-equipped if not DHS-hijacked Ferguson police. The issue du jour has become the militarization of police, whence the "us" is more generalized and not entirely race-ID'd, while the "them" is not some isolated hapless cracker (e.g. the role played by George Zimmerman) serving to divide the populus into contentious and convenient factions. It is "the people" vs. "the pigs". Though to zero in on the police state apparatus does not entirely get to the crux of the crisis, which is the oligarchical looting of America, but it is a step in the right direction.

The War Against Evolution

There has been much hand-wringing in academia of the "threat" to the scientific consensus of evolutionary theory posed by creationism or "intelligent design". Need we be so concerned with the beliefs of the creationist? Evolution would continue whether or not the creatures it brought about believe in it.

The real threat to evolution - as it has hitherto operated in bringing ourselves into existence - comes not  from those who attribute its works to the design of a deity, but from those who would assume the role of the designer, wielding unnatural powers with which to alter the invisible hand of natural selection. As such the war against evolution is waged by the war machine itself, whereby the course of evolution is stunted by, shall we say, smashing its hand ...

Berkeley Daily PlanetAmerica’s Legacy of Mutagenic War

Thanks to the US military’s embrace of Mutagenic Weapons — technologies that can poison cell tissue and ransack the human DNA far into the future — babies and children have become the latest form of "collateral damage." Today, in Vietnam and in Iraq (and in Kosovo and Afghanistan), children are being born with deadly cancers, grotesque tumors, twisted or missing limbs, freakishly enlarged heads, and a range of horrific mutations... 

Or more deliberately steering its hand through the selection of warrior phenotypes...

Secrecy NewsJASONs Ponder Military Role in Gene Research

For military purposes, it will be up to the Department of Defense “to determine which phenotypes… have special relevance to military performance and medical cost containment” and then presumably to select for those.  “These phenotypes might pertain to short- and long-term medical readiness, physical and medical performance, and response to drugs, vaccines, and various environmental exposures…. More specifically, one might wish to know about phenotypic responses to battlefield stress, including post-traumatic stress disorder, the ability to tolerate conditions of sleep deprivation, dehydration, or prolonged exposure to heat, cold, or high altitude, or the susceptibility to traumatic bone fracture, prolonged bleeding, or slow wound healing.”

“Both offensive and defensive military operations may be impacted by the applications of personal genomics technologies through enhancement of the health, readiness, and performance of military personnel.  It may be beneficial to know the genetic identities of an adversary and, conversely, to prevent an adversary from accessing the genetic identities of U.S. military personnel.”

This remains akin to the pastoral "guiding" of natural selection as found in agricultural hybridization or animal husbandry. With the onset of transgenic technology, however, the hand is unnaturally forced at the molecular level, whence genes are inserted into species' genomes that otherwise, through the normal mechanisms of genetic recombination, would never occur, whether through vertical gene transfer, i.e. sexual reproduction, or through horizontal gene transfer, which recent findings suggest not only occurs with great regularity, but is crucial to the symbiotic health of the "microbiome" ...

Given the glacial rate of evolution on planet Earth by natural processes, the artificial factors being introduced by human kind will induce alterations of species and ecosystems that are unprecedentedly rapid and unpredictable, leading to an outcomes that may perhaps be innocuous, with the trans-genes swallowed by the resilience of nature, or potentially disastrous, applying a mono-culture eraser to the genetic diversity of the biosphere. Given the unpredictability inherent in complex systems, such as is life on Earth, the precautionary principle is in order. Unfortunately, GMOs have been introduced with little in the way of precautionary study, thus rendering entire populations effectively as guinea-pigs in a vast, uncontrolled experiment...

After unloading the artillery battalion (presumably from the 1st Artillery Brigade Mazury), fully stocked Polish soldiers followed their progress on railway Separate station for loading on the platform.

I do not know whether that is the most "unpleasant surprise for the militia", which said Poroshenko, but with an open entry into the civil war in Ukraine, the regular armed forces of a foreign country (and, incidentally, a member of NATO), the military-political situation changed radically . [Google translation]

The day following Poland's military arrival in Odessa, Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 crashes near the Donetsk (Ukraine)/Russian border. Initial Flight Aware tracking suggests that the MH 17 flight path of July 17 was diverted first by Warsaw air traffic control, sending it on a trajectory towards the war zone, followed by another diversion (according to Russian Defense Ministry on July 21) in its approach to Donetsk, where Donetsk forces have had recent success in shooting down Kiev's military transport flights.

Corriere della Sera: How Malaysian Plane was Shot Down

“We shot down a Kiev plane, our superiors told us. We thought we were looking for baled-out Ukrainian pilots but instead we found dead civilians”...

This is not necessarily a confession, however...

The Oplot unit has been at the site ever since. They were the first to be tasked with identifying the bodies and then kept watch over the wreckage of the Malaysian jet before guarding the mortuary wagons. Yet the militiamen showed no sense of guilt, contradicting their commander who supplied the official version. “Obviously, it wasn’t us that shot the jet down. We haven’t got missiles that reach that high. This crime was committed by the bandits who take orders from the Kiev government. One of their fighters could easily have shot down the Malaysian Airlines plane”, they point out.

Indeed the message coming from the militias is not unified. According to Alexander Khodakovsky, commander of the Vostok Battalion...

Reuters: Ukraine rebel commander acknowledges fighters had BUK missile

"I knew that a BUK came from Luhansk. At the time I was told that a BUK from Luhansk was coming under the flag of the LNR," he said, referring to the Luhansk People’s Republic, the main rebel group operating in Luhansk, one of two rebel provinces along with Donetsk, the province where the crash took place.

"That BUK I know about. I heard about it. I think they sent it back. Because I found out about it at exactly the moment that I found out that this tragedy had taken place. They probably sent it back in order to remove proof of its presence," Khodakovsky told Reuters on Tuesday....

Khodakovsky is a former head of the "Alpha" anti-terrorism unit of the security service in Donetsk, and one of the few major rebel commanders in Donetsk who actually hails from Ukraine rather than Russia.

There has been friction in the past between him and rebel leaders from outside the region, such as Igor Strelkov, the Muscovite who has declared himself commander of all rebel forces in Donetsk province.

Khodakovsky said his unit had never possessed BUKs, but they may have been used by rebels from other units.

"The fact is, this is a theatre of military activity occupied by our, let’s say, partners in the rebel movement, with which our cooperation is somewhat conditional," he said.

"What resources our partners have, we cannot be entirely certain. Was there (a BUK)? Wasn’t there? If there was proof that there was, then there can be no question."...

The U.S. intelligence officials, who included experts on Russia’s military and its relationship with separatists in Ukraine, said they do not know the identities or even the nationalities — whether Russian or possibly defectors from Ukraine’s military — of those who launched the missile from an SA-11 surface-to-air battery.  

Nor have U.S. spy agencies reached any conclusions on the motive for the attack, except to say that the reaction among separatists recorded on social media indicates they believed they were targeting a Ukrainian military transport plane.

Strategic-Culture (Wayne Madsen): MH-17 - Beware of the «Chameleon»

The 10-day NATO exercise code named «BREEZE 2014» has ended in Black Sea. The exercise, which included the use of electronic warfare and electronic intelligence aircraft such as the Boeing EA-18G Growler and the Boeing E3 Sentry Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS), coincided with the shootdown of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 in eastern Ukraine, some 40 miles from the Russian border. NATO ships and aircraft had the Donetsk and Luhansk regions under total radar and electronic surveillance...

 The U.S. Army has revealed that the 10-day exercise involved «commercial traffic monitoring». Because of the sophistication of the electronic warfare and intelligence used during SEA BREEZE, it can be assumed that commercial traffic monitoring included monitoring the track of MH-17.

Past NATO-Ukraine exercises in Crimea were called «SEA BREEZE». This year's annual SEA BREEZE exercise with Ukraine, approved by the rump Ukrainian Parliament, is clouded in mystery with the Pentagon saying it was only «in the planning stage and we can't announce dates yet». However, 200 U.S. Army personnel normally assigned to bases in Germany were in Ukraine during the time of the MH-17 fly-over. They were participating in NATO exercise RAPID TRIDENT II. Ukraine's Ministry of Defense led the exercise.

BREEZE included the AEGIS-class guided missile cruiser USS Vela Gulf.  AEGIS cruisers' AN/SPY 1 radar has the ability to track all aircraft over a large region. For example, the AEGIS test center in Moorestown, New Jersey, was able to see the Boeing 747 TWA Flight 800 when it disappeared from radar screens in 1996 near East Moriches Bay, Long Island. According to Lockheed Martin personnel who operated the AEGIS test center in New Jersey, the Navy ordered the SPY 1 radar turned off for «maintenance» shortly before the downing of TWA 800...

Old Bandar not out of the loop...

Wayne Madsen Report: "Bandar Bush" is back calling the shots on ISIL advance through Iraq

Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the godfather behind the creation of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), now called the "Islamic State" or "Islamic Caliphate," has returned to an influential position advising King Abdullah after being sacked as Saudi intelligence chief last April. Bandar's new title is "adviser to the King and his special envoy." Bandar had never actually left the Saudi inner circle. After being dismissed as intelligence chief in April, he retained his position as secretary general of the Saudi National Security Council, a position similar to that held by Susan Rice as the White House National Security Adviser and director of the National Security Council.

Bandar's restoration to favor within the House of Saud came as King Abdullah appointed the recently-fired deputy defense minister, Prince Khaled bin Bandar bin Abdul Aziz, as the new chief of Saudi intelligence. It took only two days for Khaled from being fired as deputy defense minister, a job he held for only 45 days, to being named as Saudi intelligence chief. The shuffle came about to ensure that key Saudi defense and intelligence officials are on the same page when it comes to reasserting control over ISIL as it continues to advance toward Baghdad.

However, the House of Saud has been a major bank roller of ISIL since the beginning of their roles in Syria's civil war. The Al Nusra Front (Jabhat al-Nusra), on the other hand, has been mainly funded by Qatar. However, the Al Nusra Front, far from being a rival to ISIL, has pledged its support for the group as its forces spread across northern and western Iraq.

The actual aim of Saudi Arabia is to destabilize Iraq and Syria, hoping that the Nouri al-Maliki and Bashar al Assad governments, respectively, will be overthrown and replaced with radical Sunni regimes beholden to the Saudis.

Bandar, who is widely credited for arming and financing radical jihadists in the Syrian opposition rebel army against so-called "moderate" Syrian opposition forces, was forced out as Saudi intelligence chief after President Barack Obama met with King Abdullah in Riyadh on March 28. Bandar's duties as the chief Saudi interlocutor with Syria's rebels was transferred to Saudi Interior Minister Prince Mohammed bin Nayef. Those duties will now be assumed by Prince Khaled. Prince Mohammed helped steer Saudi support to the U.S.-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA), which has become a second-tier and weak player in the Syrian civil war. FSA officials, many of whom are exiled former government officials in the Assad government, are more comfortable in Istanbul hotels and restaurants than on the front lines in Syria. However, after the success of ISIL in eastern Syria and Iraq, the Saudis decided to bring back ISIL's main interlocutor, Prince Bandar, to bring the group's leadership under firmer Saudi control...

CIA director John O. Brennan, a Saudophile and former CIA station chief in Riyadh, is, according to our sources, behind the restoration of Bandar to a key position in the Saudi government. Some 1000 U.S. troops and advisers have been dispatched to Iraq not to prevent the Maliki government from falling but to assist in the transition to a post-Maliki government that will have strong pro-Saudi and Sunni representation. The U.S. military personnel are also in Iraq to protect U.S. assets in the country, including the massive U.S. embassy complex in Baghdad and U.S. oil industry interests.

There were varying unsubstantiated reports at the time of Bandar's dismissal that he had been assassinated or wounded while visiting rebel-held positions in Syria. Other reports stated that Bandar, affectionately known by the Bush family as "Bandar Bush" because of his close ties to the American political dynasty, was poisoned in an internal Saudi feud aimed at eliminating the influence of Bandar, the chief of the Sudairi clan within the House of Saud. The clan also includes Prince Turki, also a former Saudi intelligence chief, and Crown Prince Salman, the heir apparent to the throne after King Abdullah dies.

Bandar was brought back into a significant position as adviser to King Abdullah in order to carry out the Saudi and Israeli master plan for the region. The Riyadh-Jerusalem axis has agreed that Iraq as a nation must cease to exist. Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu recently publicly endorsed an independent Kurdistan in northern Iraq. The advance of ISIL forces into Iraq has convinced Turkey, long opposed to Kurdish statehood in Iraq, to support the idea or possibly face ISIL in charge of Kurdistan. The Turkish government has also started negotiations with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' party (PKK), considered a terrorist group by Turkey but now seen as a potential partner for Turkey against an ISIL takeover of Iraqi Kurdistan.

An ISIL on the move also gives Israel a powerful argument for why it must remain in charge of the West Bank. With ISIL changing its name from "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" to the more all-encompassing "Islamic State," there is a belief, backed by recent public statements by ISIL leader and self-proclaimed "caliph" Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, that ISIL's plans for an Islamic caliphate include Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, and beyond. Baghdadi has called for an Islamic revolt from the Central African Republic to Myanmar. For Netanyahu, ISIL's offensive gives him political ammunition for not only maintaining control over the West Bank but in sabotaging the new Palestinian unity government of Fatah and Hamas.

Bandar's goal is to eliminate the current governments of Syria and Iraq, thus depriving Iran of its only two allies in the region. With a radical Sunni caliphate in charge in Baghdad, ISIL will be poised to cross the Iranian border and start a rebellion among Iran's Arab minority in Khuzestan province, the center of Iran's oil industry. With ISIL gaining control of Iraq's southern oil fields as well as part of the fields bordering Iraqi Kurdistan, the takeover by a Saudi proxy of Iran's oil province would give Saudi Arabia effective control over much of the Middle East's oil reserves. The shift of political and economic clout to Riyadh would also eliminate Qatar and its Muslim Brotherhood-aligned government as a serious rival to Saudi regional hegemony...

The InterceptMeet the Muslim-American Leaders the FBI and NSA Have Been Spying On

A curious aside: interviewed for this article (as a defender of the surveillance) is one...

John Guandolo, a former FBI counterterrorism official who takes credit for developing a training program for agents on the “Muslim Brotherhood and their subversive movement in the United States,” told The Intercept that he participated in investigations of some of the individuals whose email accounts were monitored. Echoing the “red under every bed” hysteria of the McCarthy era, Guandolo believes that “hundreds” of covert members of the Muslim Brotherhood are active in the United States, that some of them have succeeded in infiltrating the Pentagon, and that CIA director John Brennan is a secret Muslim...

Such far-fetched accusations don’t bear serious scrutiny, given Guandolo’s increasingly bizarre and paranoid views since leaving the FBI. (Last year, for instance, he told a talk-radio host that CIA director John Brennan secretly converted to Islam and is a tool of Saudi intelligence.)

Guandolo's accusations as reported in the above linked World Net Daily and The Blaze may indeed be far-fetched and McCarthyite in tone, yet other related allegations that have come to light elsewhere: Wayne Madsen for instance has reported not that Brennan is a Muslim, but that...

Brennan can also be legally referred to as "Al Hadj John Brennan." While he was station chief in Riyadh, Brennan made the Islamic "hadj" or pilgrimage to Mecca. Although entry into Mecca is forbidden to non-Muslims, Brennan went as the personal guest of the King of Saudi Arabia who also has the title "Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques" of Mecca and Medina. The King can grant, in special circumstances, access to Mecca by non-Muslims, although the practice is rare.

As for his being "a tool of Saudi intelligence," see the above mirrored WMR article on Prince Bandar along with details aggregated in our own profile of Brennan. Greenwald then, in characterizing such allegations as ridiculous, is here effectively covering for Brennan; an interesting development given what has also been reported at Wayne Madsen Report (mirrored in our February 2014 headlines summary) regarding Snowden's assistance from CIA employees in leaking the NSA document trove.

Another case of Greenwald (in his July 25 Intercept article) downplaying - by not mentioning - Brennan's relationship with the Saudis; but highlighted by...

LaRouchePAC: Obama's Crony John Brennan Partnered the NSA with Saudi Torturers

By Cryptome's tally update, as of...

25 July 2014. Add 4 pages to The Intercept. Tally now *2,107 pages of The Guardian first reported 58,000 files; caveat: Janine Gibson, The Guardian NY, said on 30 January 2014 "much more than 58,000 files in first part, two more parts" (no numbers) (tally now less than ~3.5%). DoD claims 1,700,000 files (~.012% of that released). ACLU lists 525 pages released by the press. However, if as The Washington Post reported, a minimum of 250,000 pages are in the Snowden files, then less than 1% have been released.

And we would add, the names of domestic surveillance targets released by Greenwald are only five among hundreds or even thousands, consisting of "202 email addresses as belonging to “U.S. persons,” 1,782 as belonging to “non-U.S. persons,” and 5,501 as “unknown” or simply blank."

An any case, an analysis (based on what little Greenwald has given us) shows that the NSA may be falsely accused...

It was wishful thinking... @Cryptomeorg July 10: Gaza bombing would not be happening if NSA technical docs on how US aids Israel spying-armaments had been released. July war not averted. Also: ISIS war would not be happening if NSA technical docs on US Mid-East spying and armaments were released. July war not averted. Aspen joyful.

CPunks: XKeyscore rules probably are from Snowden, after all

There has been some speculation that the recent XKeyscore rule leaks
[1] do not come from Snowden — particularly, by Schneier [2]. I
believe that there is a good case that the leaks do come from Snowden,
since it is possible to pinpoint the date range when the rule sources
[3] have been last updated... [the rest is fairly technical]

Times of Israel: Residents of small Guatemalan town want Jews to leave

Indigenous residents of San Juan La Laguna, a small town of under 10,000 in the Guatemalan state of Sololá, have asked members of the Jewish community — comprising 10 ultra-Orthodox families, most of whom arrived only recently — to identify themselves in a municipal registry and leave within the next few months...

Residents have filed complaints with the municipality that the community of ultra-religious Jews have used a public body of water as a mikveh (ritual bath), practiced unhygienic rituals like kaparot (where a chicken is swung around a rabbi’s head before being slaughtered), and made disparaging comments about immodesty to tourists.  

According to the mayor, the indigenous population has also been suspicious since a Canadian couple accused of child abuse reportedly moved to San Juan La Laguna with their six children...
