A whistleblower has revealed extraordinary information on the U.S. government’s support for international terrorist networks and organised crime. The government has denied the allegations yet gone to extraordinary lengths to silence her. Her critics have derided her as a fabulist and fabricator. But now comes word that some of her most serious allegations were confirmed by a major European newspaper only to be squashed at the request of the U.S. government.

The audacity of the so-called Arab League.. run by dictators, for dictators.
As the Arab League “discusses” Syria sanctions and the finance ministers meet in Cairo after Syria failed to sign a protocol allowing rights monitors into the country, one could only wonder about the facts on the ground.
No, I am not pro-Assad or his Alawite mercenaries.
However, whenever the United States suddenly cares about the ill-treatment of Arabs somewhere in the Arab world, take notice: U.S. interests are the only interests that will be served; not the Arabs’ regardless of where they may be. Whatever protects the largest state of terrorism in the world, Israel, this is where the current U.S. policy and interests lie.
Back to the Arab League.
There’s a move to convince the international community to move forward and impose sanctions coupled with a military intervention in Syria. The first step to make this happen and easily accepted by the world, is to sell the idea that the Arabs themselves imposed sanctions against Syria, which failed and therefore, the Arab League sought help from the United Nations (the cover name for U.S. intervention). Thus, a military action against Syria will ensure – so the U.S. and Israel think – that the following is within their ultimate goals:
- Bombing Syria and sending it the stone-age as was done with Iraq.
- Eliminating Syria’s support to Hizbollah – the only freedom-fighting group that humiliated Israel at least twice!
- Bomb Iran – once in Syrian air-space, the despicable Arab dictators support to this U.S. intervention will provide bases and launching points to accomplish this act.
Interestingly, the United Nations says more than 3,500 people have been killed since the start of the uprising in March. Maybe so. But what about the Palestinians who are killed daily and openly in Palestinian territories? Over 6,000 Palestinians have been killed by the terrorist state of Israel since 2000, while a little over 1,000 Israelis have been killed in the same period. Did the U.N. ever cry foul or expressed concern?
- Where was the Arab League when Israel invaded Lebanon in 1982?
- Where was the Arab League when Israel attempted to invade south Lebanon again in 2006?
- Where was the Arab League when Israel launched its terror offensive against Gaza?
- Where IS the Arab League when on a daily basis Palestinians are evicted from their homes, their homes are confiscated, their women and children jailed indefinitely and so on?
- Where was the Arab League when the Israeli terrorists committed another Massacre on the Marmara?
- Where was the Arab League when Israel imposed the illegal blockade and thus creating an Auschwitz-like “open camp” against Palestinians in Gaza?
- Where is the Arab League NOW as Israel blatantly steals Lebanese water along the Mediterranean and steal natural gas resources from the Lebanese?
The facts are disturbing. Especially when the enemies of Humanity, the terrorist state of Israel claims openly that Assad’s fall is good for Israel!
No one knows what will replace the brutal Assad regime: A Jihadist junta, a drawn out civil war or, or even the eventual rise of a freedom loving society. But it is certain that breaking the Syria-Iran axis will benefit Israel and the world also stands to gain through any weakening of the ambitious Iranian war machine.
Iranian war machine? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! We see what Israel is doing to those it occupies: with tanks, F-16’s and Apache helicopters! All courtesy of over $4 billion of annual U.S. aid to support terrorism and Israel!

My love and admiration for Egypt grows daily!
Egyptians are the real Arab heroes. They toppled the biggest CIA agent and dictator and forced him behind bars… just like a monkey, adding to the humiliation this degenerate and his family will receive in this life. Where are “his” partners now to save him?
And on the day of judgment he will be asked again to bring forth those partners he so believed in, and see if they could save him from eternal Hell and damnation.
And now our heroes are back in action: they want to topple the Israeli’s terrorist so-called embassy!
Egyptians must continue applying the pressure and demand the eviction of these heathens from the pure and holy Arab lands. If only other Arab countries and men/women were as courageous. Maybe the Egyptians have already ignited the fuse for the rest!
The Israeli terrorists have no place in the Middle East. Their embassies should be immediately closed and all their people evicted from Arab lands. It’s outrageous for Arabs to accept these heathens on their lands while the NaZionists continue annexing and build the so-called settlements – they’re actually building terrorist camps!
Then there’s the pro-terrorist-Israeli-media! Have you noticed their “headlines?” “Muslims storm Israeli Embassy..” and such garbage. Speaking of “spinning the facts/ truth and history” – something Israelis are excellent and experienced in!
Get out of my land: my Arab and Holy Land!

The despicable UN report that Israel did not violate international law by imposing the illegal siege of Gaza…
Or the report that Israel simply used “excessive force” in its attack on the Mavi Marmara (Flotilla) and executing at least 9 civilians in cold blodd…
Or the UN’s call for freedom of South Sudan yet remains silent on Palestinians quest for freedom and independence…
These and more – prove that the United Nations is simply a puppet in the hands of Super Powers to be manipulated at will! Those seeking freedom will only get their freedom if the Superpowers “approve” their application!!!
If a “terrorist” supporting government like Sudan is in question, we go in full force to demand and support the liberation of the South – seeking its freedom and Independence. People like Clooney and other despicable opportunists run to “inform” the world of the severity of the Southern Sudanese…
Yet as Israel continues its Apartheid practice, ethnic cleansing policies, building more illegal settlements on Palestinian lands, torturing Palestinian prisoners of all ages, Clooney and the U.N. choose silence!
And the terrorist state of Israel and its actions against Palestinians, more horrific than the Holocaust itself, are simply “regrettable” actions…or excusable or whatever terminology that spins the ugly truth into something less negative-sounding!
And when Palestinians seek a vote to support their independence from the terrorist regime of the Israeli NaZionists, we – the USA – threaten such a freedom-seeking action with Veto, halting all aid to Palestinians (of which they see none – it goes into the pockets of the puppets played by the US government – as was the case in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and many more) and publicly demanding that such a request by Palestinian is hasty, illogical and produces mistrust with the Israelis…
In other words, Palestinians must be disbanded more and reduced to tribes like the Indian “nations” that remain in the U.S.
So when will the UN ever find Israel guilty of any crime?
When pigs fly!
Or when the superpowers become real democracies seeking justice for all…
Otherwise, the oppressed will continue to fight back for their freedom. And sooner or later, the oppressed and occupied win. History has just slapped the Universe with such evidence: Libya, Tunisia and Egypt have been liberated!
Kudos to Turkey and its expulsion of the Israeli
diplomats terrorists from Turkey!
The demise of Israel is coming soon… the previews are almost over!!!

Israel ensures a continued Ass-Kissing Congress by using some of the AID the U.S. Government pays Israel ($5 billion a year – or what we, the U.S.A, declare) as a… Rebate?
And you wonder why this body of degenerate congressional individuals always veto’s any resolution condemning Israeli atrocities and war crimes against Palestinians.

Rapid City, South Dakota (CNN) — Walid
Shoebat Shoe-butt had a blunt message for the roughly 300 South Dakota police officers and sheriff’s deputies who gathered to hear him warn about the dangers of Islamic radicalism.
Terrorism and Islam are inseparable, he tells them. All U.S. mosques should be under scrutiny.
“All Islamic organizations in America should be the No. 1 enemy. All of them,” he says.
It’s a message Shoebat is selling based on his own background as a Palestinian-American convert to conservative Christianity. Born in the West Bank, the son of an American mother, he says he was a Palestinian Liberation Organization terrorist in his youth who helped firebomb an Israeli bank in Bethlehem and spent time in an Israeli jail.
That billing helps him land speaking engagements like a May event in Rapid City — a forum put on by the state Office of Homeland Security, which paid Shoebat $5,000 for the appearance. He’s a darling on the church and university lecture circuit, with his speeches, books and video sales bringing in $500,000-plus in 2009, according to tax records.
“Being an ex-terrorist myself is to understand the mindset of a terrorist,” Shoebat told CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”
But CNN reporters in the United States, Israel and the Palestinian territories found no evidence that would support that biography. Neither Shoebat nor his business partner provided any proof of Shoebat’s involvement in terrorism, despite repeated requests.
Back in his hometown of Beit Sahour, outside Bethlehem, relatives say they can’t understand how Shoebat could turn so roundly on his family and his faith.
“I have never heard anything about Walid being a mujahedeen or a terrorist,” said Daood Shoebat, who says he is Walid Shoebat’s fourth cousin. “He claims this for his own personal reasons.”
CNN’s Jerusalem bureau went to great lengths trying to verify Shoebat’s story. The Tel Aviv headquarters of Bank Leumi had no record of a firebombing at its now-demolished Bethlehem branch. Israeli police had no record of the bombing, and the prison where Shoebat says he was held “for a few weeks” for inciting anti-Israel demonstrations says it has no record of him being incarcerated there either.
Shoebat says he was never charged because he was a U.S. citizen.
“I was born by an American mother,” he said. “The other conspirators in the act ended up in jail. I ended up released.”
He said his own family has vouched for his prison time. But relatives CNN spoke to described him as a “regular kid” who left home at 18, eventually becoming a computer programmer in the United States.
Shoebat, now in his 50s, says he converted to Christianity in 1993 and began spreading the word about the dangers of Islam. He has been interviewed as a terrorism expert on several television programs, including a handful of appearances on CNN and its sister network, HLN, in 2006 and 2007.
Since al Qaeda’s 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, expertise on terrorism has been in high demand. The federal Department of Homeland Security has spent nearly $40 million on counterterrorism training since 2006. The department doesn’t keep track of how much goes to speakers, nor does it advise officials on the speakers hired by states and municipalities.
Shoebat spoke at a 2010 conference in South Dakota and was so well-received that he was invited back for the May event in Rapid City, according to state officials. He warned the police and first responders gathered in the hotel conference rooms that the Lebanese Shiite Muslim militia Hezbollah had operatives working in Mexico and that drug cartels were raising money with Islamic groups. He also asserted that federal agents could have prevented the 9/11 attacks by looking for a chafed spot, called “zabibah,” that sometimes forms on the foreheads of devout Muslims.
“You need ex-terrorists who can tell you what life is like and what thinking is like of potential terrorists,” Shoebat said. “But had we looked at the zabibah only, we would have deflected a suicide action of killing 3,000 Americans.”
But Shoebat also told the group there were 17 hijackers when there were 19. And perhaps more surprising from a man who bills himself as a terror expert, Shoebat said the Transportation Security Administration could have stopped them. The TSA wasn’t created until after the 9-11 attacks.
Jim Carpenter, South Dakota’s homeland security director, said Shoebat brought “a point of view that certainly is not mainstream.”
“He brings in commentary about living and being raised as a Muslim and converting over to Christianity — gives them a different aspect of breaking the mold, so to speak,” Carpenter said. But he said Shoebat’s appearance was “a small portion” of the two-and-a-half-day conference.
“It’s not like we’re talking about setting up training and a discipline we would follow, that this is the only way and that’s the particular point of view of a Muslim or somebody of the Islamic faith. That’s not the case,” Carpenter said. “That’s his point of view.”
Carpenter said there is “no fear of threat” from Islamic terrorism in South Dakota, where the last census reports showed the state’s Muslim community made up less than one-half of 1 percent of the population. According to Rapid City’s local newspaper, about two dozen Muslims live in the city.
During Shoebat’s presentation, he criticized Muslim organizations and told audience members to be leery of Muslim doctors, engineers, students and mosques.
“Now, we aren’t saying every single mosque is potential terrorist headquarters. But if you look at certain reports by the Hudson report, 80 percent of mosques they found pamphlets and education on jihad. So they’re in the mosque, the mosque in accordance to the Muslim brotherhood is the command post and center.”
The conservative Hudson Institute said it never issued such a report and has no idea why its name was invoked.
Shoebat warned that making special accommodations for Muslim beliefs was a step toward establishing Islamic religious law. And he recounted how he wore a T-shirt that read “Profile me” on a trip to the airport and approached the screeners at the security checkpoint.
“I got tapped down, I got checked, I got all these different things,” he said. “I say it’s wonderful.”
Shoebat and business partner Keith Davies run several foundations and three websites that are all linked. Shoebat said the major group, the Forum for Middle East Understanding, includes his own Walid Shoebat Foundation.
In tax records filed by Davies, the Forum for Middle East Understanding reported 2009 earnings from speaking engagements, videos and book sales of more than $560,000. The documents are thin on specifics, and so is Shoebat.
“Basically, we are in information, and we do speaking and we do also helping Christians that are being persecuted in countries like Pakistan, and we help Christians that are suffering all throughout the Middle East,” he said. Asked how they do that, he said, “None of your business” — adding that disclosing details could endanger people he was trying to help in Islamic countries that have laws against blasphemy.
Shoebat’s name doesn’t appear on any of the paperwork. As for his own salary, he said he makes “probably what a gas station makes or a garage makes.”
“Everybody thinks I’m just raking in the dough, which is absolutely incorrect,” he said. He referred details to Davies, who offered to provide a copy of the group’s tax returns — but didn’t. When asked who served on the foundation’s board of advisers, Davies gave “Anderson Cooper 360” the name of a former pilot, who didn’t return phone calls. But he could not name the high-ranking military officers he said were on the board.
Federal officials say they don’t know exactly how much money has gone to speakers like Shoebat. But in April, the bipartisan leaders of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee raised concerns about “vitriolic diatribes” being delivered by “self-appointed counterterrorism experts” at similar seminars.
Sen. Susan Collins, the committee’s Republican chairwoman, and Connecticut Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman asked the department to account for how much federal grant money went to state and local counterterrorism programs and what standards guided those grants. The request followed reports by the liberal Political Research Associates and the Washington Monthly that raised similar questions.
The Homeland Security Department told CNN that it has standards — and if training programs don’t meet them, “corrective action will be taken.”
“We have not and will not tolerate training programs — or any DHS-supported program — that rely on racial or ethnic profiling,” the agency said in a written statement.
