MOSSAD and CIA at the "Helm" in Lebanon Today.
.هوى «الفارس» شامخاً
السيدة العذراء حضنت ابنها البار :
. لماذا تنتحبون الابطال لا يموتون هم احياء عند ربّهم
الوزير السابق ايلي حبيقة ليس لبنانياً لضم جريمة إغتياله الى المحكمة الدولية؟
مجرمون....هم عناصر أمنية إرهابية تتعاون منذ سنوات إنطلاقا من واشنطن على غرار جيفري فيلتمان
اذاعة واشنطن من معراب
24 كانون الثاني 2002
خرج من السجن مليارديراً كبيراً. وليس غير الميلياردير يبني قصراً من حجم قصر معراب... "صحتان على قلبه". فالرجل قطف ثمار تجاراته وعدّل عن مصادرة بيوت الناس ليحوّلها مساكن له ولأزلامه وصمّم على الاستقرار في قرية معراب. "فيا نيّالها ونيّال شعبها"!!
سمير جعجع .. ما هي مطاليبه المسيحية والوطنية؟
لا مطاليب له. فهو يكرّر الآتي" "مشروع 14 آذار يكفينا".
ما هو مشروع 14 آذار؟
الاجابة الصحيحة عند المعلم جيفري فيلتمان. فرجل معراب يذيع التعليق السياسي لا المعلومة. وأحياناً يتنبّأ بالاغتيالات والتفجيرات على سبيل التنبؤ فقط. اذن إذاعة واشنطن من معراب مهمتها التحريض والشرذمة وبث ثقافة "الصليب المشقوف".
من تعليقات سمير جعجع اليومية:
"الجنرال عون يفتقر الى ملكة الحوار ... الحوار انتقل اليه من نبيه بري ... لعمري، تلك مجازفة وطنية كبرى".
" الجنرال عون غوغائي وعشوائي".
" الجنرال عون ناطق شاطر بإسم سوريا في لبنان ... ويا نيّال سوريا ...
" الجنرال عون مطاليبه شروط تعجيزية تعرقل انتخاب رئيس الجمهورية".
" الجنرال عون شعاره: أنا الرئيس أو لا أحد".
وبعد هذا المسلسل الطويل من الشتائم وبعد مسلسلات 23 و24 كانون الثاني 2007، ومسلسلات تشرين الثاني 2006 على أثر اغتيال بيار الجميل، يطالب جعجع بجلسة حوار مع العماد ميشال عون. وإذ لا يرّد عليه العماد عون، يقفز جعجع الى شاشة ال "ال.بي.سي: من على درج بكركي ليقول:" شفتو يا ناس.. عون ما بدّو يحاور ولا بدّو حل".
تحوّلت القرية اللبنانية الوادعة والهادئة "معراب" مطاراً للسواح الأميركيين وأجدادهم الأوروبيين والمعجبين بهم من المحيط الى الخليج مما جعل رجل معراب يظن أنه "مركز الثقل" شرقاً وغرباً لا مجرّد ثغرة أميركية في الكيان اللبناني. ومن هذه البخاريات والضبابيات المنفلشة في الرأس والبصيرة، عاد سمير جعجع الى خطابه القديم "الأمر لي". بكركي تساهلت معه وتبنّت بعض شعاراته، لكن الرابية وبنشعي أعادتاه الى حجمه الطبيعي .. فجنّ جنونه وأخذ عنه "شقلة" ناطور حاجز البربارة انطوان زهرا وعضو بلدية بيروت جو سركيس الذي رقّاه السنيورة الى رتبة وزير.
توصيفات جعجع للجنرال عون خرجت على المألوف وتجاوزت كل أصول اللياقة والأدب. ومن هو جعجع حتى يتطاول يومياً على أكبر زعيم مسيحي في الشرق الأوسط؟
جعجع لا يمثل حتى "القوات اللبنانية" لأن قسماً عريضاً من القوات، عناصر وقياديين، لم يعترفوا برئاسة القوات، ولم يلتحقوا بها. فهو أول رئيس للقوات لم ينتخب انتخاباً بل جاء بإنقلاب دمويّ راح ضحيته مئات الشباب، وبعد ذلك بدأ ما يسمّى ب"مسلسل الجثث العائمة" في بيروت الشرقية اذ كان جعجع يبطش بكل من تُشتم منه رائحة عدم الولاء لحركته الانقلابية. وعندما ناخ له الواقع القواتي، بدأت السفن البحرية بإفراغ حمولاتها من النفايات الكيميائية والسامة على الشواطئ الواقعة تحت السيطرة القواتية لنقلها الى "شننعير" وسواها من المناطق الجبلية.
وماذا عن هزائمه في الجبل وشرقي صيدا والقتل الجماعي والتهجير الجماعي كنتيجة لتلك الهزائم؟
وماذا عن تحالفه مع سوريا ضد الجنرال عون عام 1990 مع ما استتبع ذلك من ضرب للمؤسسة العسكرية الشرعية وعودة الوصاية السورية الى بيروت الشرقية؟
سمير جعجع قاد أكبر موكب سيارات شهدته سوريا للتعزية بباسل الأسد بينما امتنع عن تعزية الوزير الماروني سليمان فرنجية بوفاة جدّه الرئيس.
لماذا وجّه جعجع آليته الميليشيوية المساّحة ضد الموارنة بشكل خاص فكانت حروبه مع القوى المارونية لا تهدأ ولا تستكين؟
لقد حوّل جعجع "القوات اللبنانية" عن مسارها الأصيل. جعلها "حركة فاشية" هي الأولى من نوعها في الطائفة المارونية ورسم لها "صليباً مشقوفاً" للدلالة على دمويتها وعنصريتها. قامت هذه الحركة بإخضاع الساحة المسيحية كلها تحت سيطرتها الميلشيوية، والغاء كل من يقاوم مشروعها، ومصادرة القرار المسيحي كاملاً حتى ان بكركي تحوّلت مقاماً دائماً للمثل الشخصي لسمير جعجع قبل أن تتحرّر المنطقة الشرقية من كابوس جعجع. بعد ذلك كله، يقول أنصار جعجع "أن المسيحيين اللبنانيين عديمو الوفاء لأنهم تنكّروا للقوات".
وها ان جعجع يعود مجدداً ليلعب الدور نفسه على الساحة المسيحية ودائماً تحت القبّعة الأميركية: الدور التفتيتي والمخرّب. فحيث تكن واشنطن يكن جعجع ولو في دمشق وطهران اللتين تحتلان اليوم واجهة خطابه الشتائمي.
ألم يكن شعار جعجع:" أعرف عدوك... سوريا عدوك"؟ .. فجأة رآه الناس في دمشق. فجأة رآه الناس في خندق الجيش السوري يحارب الجيش اللبناني ... سمير جعجع "بيّاع مواقف" لا أكثر ولا أقل. وكم كلّفت تجاراته المسيحيين في لبنان!! ... فلا يتعجبن أحد ان رأى سمير جعجع ثانية في دمشق.
24 كانون الثاني 2002
Hazmieh - 9.40AM
ولم ينسَ أحد كيف تصرف المسؤولون مع عملية أغتيال الوزير السابق ايلي حبيقة; شهيدنا البطل، عميد الشهداء وعريس بسكنتا, الرئيس الشهيد إيلي حبيقة; أمام منزله في الحازمية في 24 كانون الثاني 2002 وكأن شيئاً لم يحصل. وهذا ما يدفع رفاق حبيقة الى طرح السؤال، لماذا لم تلقَ قضية الإغتيال هذه إهتماماً من الحكومات المتعاقبة منذ حصول الجريمة وحتى اليوم؟
متوهمون هؤلاء الجبناء والمجرمون والقتلة ....
متوهمون لأنهم يعتقدون بأن الدماء الطاهرة التي يسفكونها إنتقاماً وحقداً أو تآمراً على لبنان ستخرس الأصوات وتهمش الوطن وتجعله ألعوبة شرق أوسطية جديدة تغرق في دوامة العنف والإرهاب واللإنسانية ....
متوهمون هؤلاء عندما يقفون أمام الله ويطلبون المغفرة منه بأن جرائمهم لها مغفرة عند الإله العادل والغفور في آن واحد ....
لا والله وألف والله لن يغفر الله لمثل هؤلاء القتلة لأنهم يقتلون وطناً ويجوعون ويهجرون شعباً بأكمله ....
[ إلياس (إيلي) جوزيف حبيقة (22 سبتمبر 1956 - 24 يناير 2002)]
كنت رمزاً للوطنية والعطاء ....
واليوم باستشهادك أصبحت أرزة شامخة على قمم جبال لبنان .....
أصبحت منارة لبنانية تضيئ الكرامة والعزة في سماء لبنان الوطن ....
أصبحت أنشودة حب وعطاء وأباء ومحبة لوطن أرادوه قاتلوك المجرمون أن يتحول إلى بؤرة فساد حافظوا عليها لفترات طويلة لكنها قسماً وألف قسم بأنها لن تدوم لهم لأنها ما دامت لكثيرين غيرهم من قتلة وسفلة ومجرمين ....
قسماً بكل دماء الشهداء وبكل دماء الأحرار والشرفاء وبكل قطرة دم تسيل في عروقنا بأننا لن نترك لبنان يصبح بؤرة الفساد والإرهاب التي يريدونها ويخططون لها ....
لن نكيل الشتائم ولكن، تحديداً، ونتهم، إننا نقول فقط لكل هؤلاء، بأن الله لن يغفر لمجرم وقاتل عن سابق إصرار وقصد وتخطيط .....
فمن كان من هؤلاء متوهماً بأنه يخدم الله فإنه لا يخدم إلا زبانية الشياطين والملعونين في هذه الأرض ....
طوبى لصانعي السلام .... طوبى للمساكين بالروح .... طوبى للودعاء .... طوبى لأنقياء القلب ....للرحماء ....للجياع والعطاش للبر....للحزانى ....
وما قيل يوماً طوبى للقتلة والمجرمين ....
والواقع إن من قتل نفساً كأنه قتل الناس أجمعين ....
وأولى الوصايا لا تقتل .... وها هو دم أخيك يناديك في الأرض ....
إن شعب لبنان قد عزم أمره وتوكل ولن تبق المزرعة مزرعة ولن ترتفع راية الزنادقة بعد الآن ....
فدماء الشهداء تغسل الأرض وترويها وتنبت من طهارتها الحرية للأوطان ....
فطوبى لهذا الوطن وطوبى لهؤلاء الشهداء الذين علمونا كيف يكون العطاء .... كيف نحافظ على وجودنا ....
كيف نعانق هذه الأرض ونعطيها بكل حب وعزم وسخاء....
طوبى للشهيد البطل ، مجداً للبنان ، مجداً لكل مواطن عرف ويعرف ثمن الدماء وثمن تلك الضحايا الجسام ....
وأهلك أيها الشهيد الغالي علينا هم أهلنا وعزاؤهم عزاؤنا أيضاً ....
فنم قرير العين فقد أديت قسطك للعلي فاسترح ولبنان كل لبنان يقدم لك التحية فأنت فخر الوطن ....
والمجرمون ليس لهم سوى مزابل التاريخ التي تنتظرهم .....
تعازينا القلبية للعائلة الكريمة ولكل وطني شريف في هذا العالم .....
With tears in their eyes and flowers in their hands people paid tribute to their national hero. Sad at the loss, which can not be compensated yet pride was all over their faces,sacrificed their son of the soil. His was a death for a noble cause of dying for one's own country. Such men are not born everyday, they belong to the rare class of humanity, who are an example in themselves, and they are the ones who set precedents. And they themselves are unprecedented....HEROES.
The CIA/MOSSAD, [emphasis is made here on the "SS" in MOSSAD] alliance of equal evils, has been blamed for all the assassinations in Lebanon starting with the assassination of Lebanese Hero, MP and ex-Minister Mr. Elie Hobeika, January 24th 2002 at 9.40 AM in Hazmieh, and ending ( so far ) in the assassination of Army General Francois el -Hajj who was assassinated yesterday morning in Baabda, a suburb of Beirut, and the heart of the Lebanese Military and Presidential compounds, which begs the question of the incredible lack of professionalism within the military command structure?, and active complicity of some of the same.....? including but not limited to the skunk Michel Suleiman, a CIA asset.....
The true story of what has gone on in Lebanon, since APRIL of 1996, until January 24th 2002..., until today, is dynamic and full of "calculated intrigue"....!....? In this business, I’ve known, heard and read a lot of things. But when I had to pick my jaw up off the floor during the reading of certain portions in Elie’s notes—well, let me just say that Truth certainly is stranger, and far more interesting, than the many fictions we’ve been led to believe are .... "fact". And yet The Truth does fit together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle... for sure. My own research, which meshes with and expands upon Truth which has been presented by some others in the security business, and elsewhere, and that is good; Truth is Truth is Truth, and should all mesh... and it WILL. The perceptive reader penetrates "between the lines" thoughtfully, there is glimpsed a recurring "untold" commendable spiritual message in Elie’s notes—of "Have the courage to speak The Truth" and "God helps those who help themselves"— in Conclusion, I link every major global conflict and political assassination to the hands of the ...x.... Order. The Jews, as with many other groups, nations, have been the unwitting pawns in this xxxx Agenda for centuries... More later, and I promise you ALL, I will have the last word... in time.

شهيدنا البطل، عميد الشهداء وعريس بسكنتا, الرئيس الشهيد إيلي حبيقة ، اليوم ودعناك ، بكيناك، ، لنلقي عليك النظرة الاخيرة في زمن الميلاد، شهيدنا الغالي ، من حيث أنت ندعوك ونرجوك متابعة المسيرة للوصول للهدف المنشود ، "لبنان الحبيب" هذا الذي به حلمت وعنه دافعت ولأجله إستشهدت وقدمت جسدك قرابيناً على مذبح وطنك الحبيب، كم كانت صعبة لحظات الفراق، لحظات الوداع الأخير قبل ان تغادر الى حيث يذهب الرجال الرجال، الى الجنة، جنة الشرفاء، جنة الأبطال والابرار،فما بالنا نقول لك ، أنت في السماء ، في مقر الشرفاء ونحن هنا باقون ومستمرون على العهد والوعد، سنشتاق اليك، سنفتقدك، سنتعرف عليك اكثر واكثر، بطولاتك ستحاكي اجيال الغد لتكون قدوة لكل شريف على ارض هذا الوطن، فعسانا ان نساهم بتحقيق ما كنت تهدف اليه ، نعدك ولن نتراجع
التاريخ الرسمي لبداية الأزمة في لبنان هو الإغتيالات التي أنطلقت بقتل الرئيس الشهيد إيلي حبيقة في 24/01/2002:
رحم الله إيلي حبيقة: حبيقة كان مبدعا في حياته وسيظل حاضرا في غيابه, في وجهها الأول، والتمديد للرئيس لحود في وجهها الثاني، ولمدة ثلاث سنوات بدءاً من 23/11/.2004 وكانت هذه هي بداية الصراع المعلن الدولي - الإقليمي. وكان 14 شباط 2005 مع اغتيال رفيق الحريري ورفاقه هو تاريخ بداية المد الدولي وحلفائه في لبنان، والانحسار الإقليمي وحلفائه في لبنان. وسُجلت موجة الاغتيالات والتفجيرات عن صواب أو خطأ على الجانب الإقليمي في محاولة مزعومة منه لتعديل ميزان القوى. وجاءت حرب تموز لتحقق عكس الغاية المنشودة منها وتعطي دفعاً قوياً لقوى الممانعة محلياً وإقليمياً. واستمر الصراع على السطح بين طرفي النزاع عبر تسجيل النقاط مرة لهذا الفريق وأخرى لذاك دون القدرة على الحسم لأي منهما، فيما كانت تحدث تحولات في الطبقات السفلى من الصراع الإقليمي - الدولي. وكان من مظاهره ظهور حدود، في الآونة الأخيرة، رسمتها القوى الدولية لنفسها ولا تريد أن تتخطاها في التأييد المعلن للفريق الحاكم في لبنان.
As for the CIA's book on Hobeika, written by an illiterate by the name of "COBRA", as a "precursor" and a deliberate "Primer" for the horrendous assassination of Mr. Elie Hobeika, I would say the following:
LIARS in USA's BUSHLAND and Cheney's Crime heaven.
People looking at the rating I've given this book will quickly label me as a fanatic Lebanese Christian. Be that as it may, I for one have made researching an author's background a habit of mine before I read any book. That way, I get to piece together a certain picture in my head concerning the content of a book, since the author's character greatly affects his writings. In the case of Robert hatem, aka "cobra", that wasn't necessary. I've been unfortunate enough to have made the acquaintance of cobra on many an occasion prior to his infamous book publishing. I feel it is my duty to give you, the potential buyer of this "book", a brief historical background on the author. Cobra is an illiterate man, who was picked off of the streets by the deceased elie hobeika, trained to become both a fighter and a doorman to elie hobeika who was appointed head of the Lebanese Forces' intelligence service in 1980. From the first day Robert hatem was recruited by elie hobeika, he was on the payroll..... Not only that, but elie hobeika entrusted cobra with the task of protecting his family, and cobra was even allowed to sleep in the hobeika household! one day, cobra was given a mission by CIA...; to kidnap a thief by the name of roger tamraz. Roger tamraz is by far, hands down, the Webster's dictionary definition of human filth. Robert Baer mentions tamraz in his book "see no evil". You can always refer back to that. back to cobra. after his release, tamraz made a deal with cobra. as it were, cobra wasn't too happy with the fat paycheck and the security his master was protecting him, so tamraz persuaded cobra to write a book that would scandalize and besmirch elie hobeika's name. But robert hatem did a lot worse than that; he mentioned the names of many decent ladies of high stature in the Lebanese society, saying that elie hobeika had had numerous affairs with them. Countless families were torn apart by this monstrosity. But it doesn't stop there; tamraz wasn't the only one who financed the book, amine gemayel, former president of the Lebanese republic(by virtue of his brother, the late president bachir gemayel) was the arch-enemy of elie hobeika. the latter's popularity and power was growing, and amine gemayel, a thief and a scoundrel if Lebanon had ever known one, wanted to put an end to his rival's popularity. To sum it all up, this book is a biased, completely untruthful, and low attempt at documenting the biography of elie hobeika and his involvement in the Lebanese war. it is a story of the maronite Christians' struggle to displace any potential rivals to power....
Arithmetics of Disdain,
It is noteworthy that the State Department's list of global terrorist incidents for 2002 worldwide failed to list the car bombing attack on Hobeika and his party.... But Listed a small Hand Grenade thrown at a U.S. franchise in the middle of the night when the place was closed, empty and no one was hurt? The White House wanted to ensure the terror attack on Mr. Elie Hobeika, and his party of three young men with families, was censored from the report. The reason was simple: this attack ultimately had Washington's and Israel's fingerprints all over it....Given the actual climate of political cacophonies, deceit, deception and intrigue in Lebanon of today, Lebanon of the LIARS of NEOCONVILLE, it has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Mr. Elie Hobeika was a visionary Leader and a Hero.Lebanon will probably never know a Leader of this caliber.My dear friend ELIE, you have been reborn on January 24th 2002.Heroes are reborn the day of their Martyrdom .ELIE, you are more alive today, than many living political corpses,walking and talking in Beirut Lebanon every day, until resurrection.At a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act"- G. Orwell A U.S. intelligence source revealed to me, that in the world of intelligence "carve out" subcontracts such confusion is often the case with "plausible deniability" being a foremost concern in ALL covert operations, especially in Elie Hobeika's case on January 24th 2002, & Hariri's Feb. 14th 2005... Notwithstanding Jacques CHIRAC's gesticulations and false sorrow for the loss of his "friend" Rafic HARIRI, he has been regularly organizing official meetings in Paris for Asef Shawkat with his services to secure SYRIA for and with Assef Shawkat,....
The propensity of governments to create secrets out of the obvious is one of the more tedious aspects of international relations. But this secret is not obvious, and it is not trivial. Though it is true, and I hold the KEY.
Fabrications, LIES , False Flag operations, CIA and MOSSAD.It has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt,that ALL stories which came out immediately after the Assassination of Mr.Elie Hobeika, Fares Sweidan,Dimitri Ajram, and Waleed El-Zein, were completely &utterly FALSE. It was a pure fabrication by the KILLERS;AND the CIA'S Foreign Denial and Deception Committee (FDDC),to cover their tracks. Standard operating procedure...101I mean by that, the stories relating to Elie trying to find IMAD Moughnieh, the alleged attempted contacts with CIA, MOSSAD, etc. , the missing Iranian diplomats, the 9 most wanted by CIA, whose names have been circulated then,on purpose by CIA, to 7 ministers in the Lebanese Government, etc. [names which CIA has completely forgotten now,one of them has proven since to be a CIA asset himself...] ALL these were a tortuous web of lies to cover the tracks of the Murderers of CIA, MOSSAD, and their Syro-Lebanese tools.Special ongoing Investigation.Oct. , 2007- On September 15, 2001, just four days after the 9-11 attacks,CIA Director George Tenet provided President [sic] Bush with a Top Secret"Worldwide Attack Matrix"-a virtual license to kill targets deemed to be a threat to the United States in some 80 countries around the world. The Tenet plan, which was subsequently approved by Bush, essentially reversed the executive orders of four previous U.S. administrations that expressly prohibited political assassinations. Mr. Elie Hobeika will be the first target of the US administration, to pave the way for its Iraq Invasion .It planned to directly control the "Energy Basin" and ALL the OIL Transportation routes,from Pipelines to the Maritime avenues and choke points in the Gulf areas, and from central Asia to Mauritania and beyond.But most of all, Mr. Elie Hobeika will be made to pay dearly with his life,for daring to change his politics and views, after experiencing first hand,THE BRUTALITY OF THE ISRAELIS AND THE AMERICANS ,and their CULTURE OF VIOLENCE , Intrigue, murder & very bad Politics.The BUSH+CHENEY Energy MATRIX, coming to a place near you SOON.The awakening is near. It will be like a hurricane passing with untold fury.Mark my Words: .....
THE assassination of yet another Lebanese MP — the seventh anti-Syrian figure to be murdered since the slaying of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in February 2005 — has brought Lebanon to the brink of a catastrophe. It threatens to be even more devastating than the 1975-90 civil war. The country’s survival as an independent unified state is now at stake. The divide between anti-Syrian and pro-Syrian blocs is now unbridgeable.
As to fears of fresh civil war, it is already a reality. With ministers and pro-government MPs being assassinated, the government even more besieged than the one in Iraq, surviving MPs in hiding, who can talk of political normality? Lebanon is at war with itself. How long before that translates into general armed conflict is anyone’s guess. It would be naive to imagine that Ghanem’s killing will be the last. The anti-Syrian majority in Parliament is now razor-thin. Those behind this and the other killings are obviously determined to bring down the government of Prime Minister Fouad Siniora by the physical elimination of its parliamentary majority.
There can be no doubt that more assassinations are planned and will be attempted. If that happens and the Lebanese government falls as a result and is replaced by a pro-Syrian government, it will trigger a wave of retaliatory violence — against Hezbollah, against the Shiite community and against pro-Syrian figures. Open warfare waits in the wings.
Syrian protestations that it had nothing to do with Antoine Ghanem’s murder and the others may be true. It is quite possible that the killings are wholly internal, the work of pro-Syrian elements inside Lebanon who want power back. There are certainly some who do not want a new president elected to replace Emile Lahoud. It is even possible that Israelis were behind the killings, intent on destabilization and making Syria appear the villain — possible but unlikely; they have much to lose if a Hezbollah-dominated, pro-Syrian government were installed in Beirut.
The problem is that very few believe Syria’s innocence. They ask the question “who benefits?” and, in the case of each assassination, come up with the same answer: Damascus and its clients in Lebanon. That belief robs Syria of having an acceptable role in Lebanon for a long time to come. The majority of Lebanese want their sovereignty to be absolute; with no interference from anyone — be they Syrian, Israeli, Iranian, American or whatever. That dream, however, is being car-bombed to oblivion....
Forget what you've heard about objectivity. Not even cameras are objective. To nearly everything you analyze (and report on) you bring notions based on - but not limited to - your class, gender, skin color, ethnicity, native language, upbringing, education, religion, culture, playground experiences, political orientation, the influences of people you trust and things about the way our brains work that nobody even knows yet. Like sponges, we absorb stereotypes and clichés about other people's attitudes and behavior which skews our perceptions in ways we don't even realize. So don't fool yourself into believing in objectivity. The best you can achieve is fairness, and that's a tough path to stick to as well.
And then we'd have a talk about the textbook description of objectivity, which is that "every story has two sides," a pernicious dualistic myth that profoundly undermines what is supposed to be a search for truth....
The even greater danger with these dark clouds forming over Lebanon is for the region. With Syria’s links to Iran, Iran’s links to Hezbollah, rising tension over Iran’s alleged nuclear ambitions, there is a chain explosion waiting to happen. An Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, an American attack on Iran, a Syrian attack on Israel, more Lebanese assassinations: One could trigger another. The temperature is fast rising on the Middle East’s northern rim — and it is near flash point.
Dear Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee,
http://judiciary.senate.gov/ , thanks for your
great work defending the USA Constitution, with
"EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW" ,Separation
between Churches and State and Free Speech,
and my questions are:1) since most likely the Senate
will approve Michael Mukasey as the new A.G.of
the United States, and since as you know,he is an
orthodox Israeli-American and with dual citizenship,
American and Israeli,
http://phillyfreedom.blogspot.com/ , NYT Sept.
18.07 "Washington outsider with many sides"
for info on Mukasey as Judge of the WTC-
Insurance 9/11 case , will he respect other
religions exactly thesame as his?2) since he is an
ordained rabbi within his orthodox community,will his partners get treatment better or different in any way
from the one you or I or anybody else would get from
him in the United States of America?
3) what happens to all the Security Contracts
and Military deals he and his son Marc are
doing with the Companies and Interests of
Giuliani Partners and other associates ?
4) what happens with all the deals they
worked on in his son's law firm,
Bracewell&Giuliani?since Bracewell&Giuliani has
offices in the South Asia, like in Kazakhstan,a big
oil supplier ruled by an extreme undemocratic leader,
Nazarbayev, will the Mukasey's and Giuliani's
get special deals? with no supervision? political
donations? will the actual law firm of Mukasey
get special deals too? will anybody ask ? or will
they just say yes :blindly?
5) Michael Mukasey
and his son Marc are strong AIPAC supporters ,
but will anyone in the Senate ask anything about their relationship to these political-military-religious-financial
and foreign groups? we know that no one
will,but is that right? isn't special treatment?
6) Chairman,this powerful military-religious-
financial group , of which Michael Mukasey is
a leader, will have unprecedented influence in
the Justice Dpt. ,White House and Congress,
not to mention over the average taxpayer,
and since many members of the orthodox
community to which he belongs are diamond,
gold,jewelry,insurance ,real estate and tobacco
dealers and wholesalers while claiming Tax
Exemption due to religious condition,will his
appointment stop all the Investigations of the
IRS and Justice Dpt.as well as Commerce,etc.?
and back taxes?
do average Americans have a guarantee of
when we start getting prosecuted for asking
questions,what recourse do we have ? any ?
and since orthodox Mukasey will most likely
install many members of his organized religious
group into office,will we be forced to request
help from the same community like his with
the special privilege?7) Judge Mukasey was in
charge of the 9/11/01 Trial case between the
leaseholders of the WTC,SIlverstein-Goldman-
Pacific-etc., and the 23 Insurance Companies these
new leaseholders called just days before 9/11 to
open dozens of policies over everything in
the Towers, services,leases,businesses,contracts,
profits,hardware,you name it,their premiums
were millions of dollars a week, didn't make
any business sense,unless they knew what was
going to happen a few days later ,and
everybody in N.Y. and around the world
was waiting for answers from the Trial ,
and then Judge Mukasey put a lid on the
Trial and no news came out, NOTHING !!!!
and everybody asked why ?, if it is a patriotic
case,why no news at all ?why the secrecy ?
why Judge Mukesay didn't want anybody in
America to know everything about Silverstein
and his dozens of policies? , then we also found
out that then N.Y.State A.G. Eliot Spitzer
wrote a Friend of the Court brief supporting
Silverstein,the AG siding with one of the
parties!, and the Judge and Spitzer started to
push the Insurance Companies to settle for 2
events,a total of 7 billion dollars to Silverstein
and his partners, many of the Insurance
Companies refused because they knew
something was not right and eventually they
settled on 4.6 billion dollars for Silverstein ,
but we still never got any details in any
newspaper ,radio or TV,NOTHING ! I WOULD
LIKE TO ASK JUDGE MUKASEY WHY ? ,
but we do know that no one will ask him
anything in D.C., he and his Orthodox
Congregation partners rule,after all they all
go to Israel together and share Religious
Ceremonies with Kissinger, Chertoff,
Bloomberg ,Silverstein,etc., and yet we hear
S. Schumer and other neocons saying to the
media that they want to learn more from
the man !8) Chairman,this new A.G. will have
unprecedented influence over President Bush
and VP Cheney,since he is the only one that
can prosecute the 2,is it wise to have a
member of a foreign religious-political group
having so much power over the President and
the Vice-President of the United States of
America ? safe ? smart? patriotic?We know that MR..Mukasey was selected by
Joshua Bolten and approved by Senator
Schumer and others,so since "they" run
Washington,it's a done deal ,hearing Senator
Schumer telling the Media how wonderful
Mukasey is and that his nomination cuts
down on pressure on the White House, do
they extorted a deal from the President:
Our orthodox candidate and we stop asking
for White House U.S. Attorney papers and
information?is that why Bush looks so depressed?
is that how Schumer,Bolton, Emanuel,Specter,
Lieberman and Bloomberg are going to run
because clearly with Mukasey as A.G.,they
run this country lock,stock and barrel,it's
that how our Constitutional Rights end ?
Extortion of the President of the United
hearing Schumer and Specter, it's clear that it
was all about getting the Christians out of the
Justice Dpt. and installing the neocon orthodox
in, is that how they do it ?A partner of Mukasey
as adviser to Giuliani , the neocon Pedhoretz,
has repeatedly pushed with Pr.Bush to bomb Iran,
to attack, and since Sen. Lieberman and Sen. Kyl
are pushing to brand Iran's Military a terrorist
Organization, is this the beginning of a concerted
effort to push for war? it's important to remember
all this , because in 2002 and 2003 all these
neocons with Sen.Schumer,S.Coleman,
were pushing for war every day on the media
and yet now they are attacking anyone that
mentions it, they are warning elected officials
like R.Moran that to mention these facts is
anti-this and anti-that and "watch it ", they
are bullying any one that mentions what happen
before the USA went to Iraq,and worst: they
insist now on their media that only Bush-
Cheney-Rice-Rumsfeld are responsible , that
no one else pushed for this war:
THEY ARE RE-WRITING HISTORY!!! and
it looks like its not the first time, it sounds
like they always pull the same trick: they push
for war,financed with their Hedge Funds and
then with the media they erase any links to
themselves, this is criminal; to push for war
and then to hide and blamethe Christians
only,that's evil and SHOWS LOTS OF
WEAKNESS ON THE PART OF THE USA,
THIS IS A DISASTER FOR THIS GREAT
COUNTRY! to confirm an organized
religious-political-military from a foreign sect
and laws to Attorney General is
un-Constitutional,illegal, un-American and
goes against the core of the USA values,
thousands died to defend the USA
Constitution from foreign religions, how can
the Senate now approve a religious leader ?
will they even ask this question? will they
commit High Treason ?when you look at these
incompetent and criminal decisions against the
Rule of Law and the Declaration of Independence,
how can Taxpayers petition the Government
for any rights?Thanks for your great work defending
America from foreign and domestic enemies,
in my humble opinion, this situation
looks to me like occupation and foreign control,
and to you ?America knows that George Washington,
Lincoln and all the Founding Fathers would be proud of
your defense of the USA Constitution against
High Treason and High Crimes,
NO COMMENT ....... "For Now..."
Saakashvili Ordered me to Get Rid of Patarkatsishvili’ – Okruashvili
Ex-Defense Minister Irakli Okruashvili has made yet another startling allegation against his former ally, President Saakashvili. The president, he said, had personally ordered him to liquidate Badri Patarkatsishvili, a business tycoon.
Speaking live on Imedi TV’s talk show On the Air late on September 25, Okruashvili said: “Saakashvili told me that we should get rid of him [Patarkatsishvili], in the same way as happened to Rafik Hariri, the former Lebanese prime minister, who was killed in a car bomb attack.”
“In July 2005,” Okruashvili said, “Saakashvili asked me: what did I think about getting rid of one person… - Badri Patarkatsishvili? And then he [Saakashvili] outlined a very detailed plan on how to get rid of him.”
Okruashvili continued: “It was absolutely clear to me that it was a trap for me as well, because they would have gotten rid of me as well after getting rid of Patarkatsishvili.”
He said in response he told Saakashvili that he needed time to think about it.
“Meanwhile, I met with one person who at that time was working with the Americans and told him about the president’s proposal,” Okruashvili said. “I did it in the hope that the information would have been passed on to the Americans… It was Zaza Gogava [now Chief-of-Staff of the Georgian armed forces] However it did not work. Because after a month Saakashvili again repeated his demand about getting rid of Patarkatsishvili.”
“Then I met with another person in Turkey, whose identity I can not reveal. He also has close links with the Americans. He's not a Georgian citizen. I told him about Saakashvili’s plan. This information, it seemed, was delivered to the Americans, because since then Saakashvili never talked with me about getting rid of Patarkatsishvili.”President Saakashvili, who is currently in New York for the UN General Assembly Session, has yet to comment on his former ally’s allegations.
Irakli Okruashvili, ex-defense minister and once President Saakashvili’s closest ally, has accused the president of engaing in “anti-state steps” and “ordering murders.”
In his first public statement since he quit the government last November, Okruashvili also finally announced the launch of his political party – Movement for United Georgia. He refused to take question after his ten-minute speech, but said he planned to give further details and “answer all questions” during a TV appearance planned for later on Tuesday.
“I will definitely speak more on these crimes, which were masterminded by the authorities,” he said. Okruashvili added: “I was ordered by Saakashvili several times to liquidate certain influential and important people, which I refused to do.” He gave no further details.
There has been considerable speculation that “a war of compromising materials” would precede Okruashvili’s political comeback and the unveiling of his new opposition party.
Okruashvili said at the news conference in his party's headquarters in downtown Tbilisi that “fascist trends” and “anti-state steps undertaken by the authorities” had convinced him and his co-thinkers to set up the new movement. He also suggested that it hadn't been easy to launch the party.
People, he said, “are terrorized” because of “repression.” “Those with dissenting opinions are deemed ‘enemies of the state’ and the government is refusing to hold a dialogue with them,” he said.
This, he said, had made it difficult to convince people to engage in public life.
Okruashvili said that the anti-corruption campaign was “unreal.” The prisons, he said, were full of petty criminals, while corruption continued to thrive among “top level officials, Saakashvili’s inner circle and his family.”
“Three years ago when I was Interior Minister,” Okruashvili said, “I arrested Temur Alasania, the president’s uncle, for extortion of USD 200,000. I, however, had to release him on the president’s insistence.”
He also accused the authorities, and personally Saakashvili, of, as he put it, “a deliberate anti-Orthodox Church campaign” and “of fighting against Georgian traditions and values.”
“Saakashvili has an inner hatred of the Georgian Orthodox Church,” Okruashvili said. “The Georgian church is the most respected institution in Georgia. [Because of this] he [Saakashvili] perceives the Church as his main competitor. While in his inner circle, I often heard him talking about splitting the Church and discrediting the clergy.”
He also said that there was “a clear attempt” by the Saakashvili administration “to re-write Georgia’s history, as if nothing Georgian existed before the Rose Revolution, and everything new is being created by Saakashvili.”
Okruashvili also made an obvious attempt to appeal to other walks of life by saying that the older generation, those over 50, had been “neglected and humiliated.”
Internally displaced persons from Abkhazia and South Ossetia, he said, “were not regarded as human beings during ex-President Shevardnadze’s regime and this trend has continued in the Saakashvili regime as well.”
He also criticized the authorities’ policies towards the secessionist regions.
“We were one step away from reclaiming one of our lost territories,” Okruashvili said, apparently referring to South Ossetia.
Several months before his resignation from the cabinet, Okruashvili said that he had planned to celebrate the 2007 New Year in Tskhinvali, the capital of breakaway South Ossetia. Commentators said that Saakashvili’s decision to move Okruashvili last November from the Defense Ministry to the Ministry of Economy was largely because of Okruashvili’s perceived hawkish stance on South Ossetia.
In his speech on September 25, Okruashvili said that “only Saakashvili’s weakness, inability and fear” had foiled plans to reclaim the secessionist region. He also said Saakashvili was too weak to take an unspecified “historic decision.”
He also criticized Tbilisi’s decision to create the provisional South Ossetia administration, led by Dimitri Sanakoev. Okruashvili said Sanakoev had no respect and authority among the population of the region. He also said that installing Sanakoev was “an imaginary attempt” to unite the country.
Okruashvili explained his decision to “quietly” quit the government without voicing his discontent was because of, as he put it, his sense of “civil responsibility.”
“Army officers, who are still my friends, asked me to do it quietly,” he said and added that by doing so he had denied the country’s enemies an opportunity to speculate on a split within the government.
Okruashvili admitted that he shared “the responsibility for some mistakes because I was also once part of this government.”
“I, however, have done nothing but good for my country when in government,” he added. “So any attempt to discredit me will fail.”
Towards the end of his speech, he implied that he might have presidential ambitions.
“Georgia will be united only if it has a president who doesn't humiliate and insult its own people,” Okruashvili said.
Throughout his speech, Okruashvili's fellow party members stood beside him. They include: lawmakers Tea Tlashadze, Ketevan Makharashvili, Koka Guntsadze, Gia Tortladze and Gia Tsagareishvili; former Deputy Defense Minister Levan Nikolaishvili and a lawyer, Eka Beselia.
Two former journalists from Rustavi 2 TV station, Nana Lezhava and Natia Lazashvili, were also there. Both quit the TV station shortly after Rustavi 2 changed hands last November following Okruashvili’s resignation.
