Iran & Turkey aid Iraq in taking back land from Kurds

Kurds on social media expressed their displeasure with the US, feeling abandoned, as Iraqi troops aided by Iran & Turkey lowered Kurdish flags in the city of Kirkuk, replacing them with the Iraqi flag. Kurds are dependent on large oilfields near the city, to secure an independent state. Iraq’s central government has been weakened previously by the Kurdish illegal oil trade, which some say contributed to the rise of ISIS.

“We #Kurds will never forget your treason 🖕#USA gov #Kirkukِ #TwitterKurds”

“”You were great fighting ISIS. Now, bye”, as they watched Iraq and Iran lowering Kurdish flags in Kirkuk.”

“Kurds fight IS after Iraq abandons Kirkuk.. .then iraq sides with Shia militia to take Kirkuk from Kurds”

“Iran and Turkey both colluding with Iraq in crushing Kurds. Whatever other disagreements, they always come together to oppress minorities.”

“Israel pls do not let kurds die silently like holocaust by Iranian backed militia in Iraq, we are your true friend under serious threat”

“Biggest mistake Kurds made was intervening and helping Iraq defeat ISIS. We should have sat back and watched Iraq burn to the ground.”

U.S. coalition preparing false flag chemical attack in Syria?

The White House issued a stern warning to Syrian President Bashar Assad on Monday night as it claimed “potential” evidence that Syria was preparing for another chemical weapons attack.

In an ominous statement issued with no supporting evidence or further explanation, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the U.S. had “identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children.”

He said the activities were similar to preparations taken before an April 2017 attack that killed dozens of men, women and children, and warned that if “Mr. Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price.”

The White House offered no details on what prompted the warning and spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said she had no additional information Monday night. chicagotribune.com

Islamic State flag is legal in Sweden, prosecutor rules

Prosecutor Gisela Sjövall announced last week that she would not prosecute a 23-year-old man who had posted the black ISIS flag on his Facebook page in June.

Police in Laholm, a town on Sweden’s west coast, had launched a criminal investigation into the man, who comes originally from Syria, on suspicion of committing “hate speech”.

“Put simply, one can say that he is expressing contempt for “all others”, and not against a specific ethnic group,” Sjövall told Sweden’s SVT broadcaster.

She said that while the swastika had now come to symbolise a hatred for Jews, the same could not yet be said of the IS flag.

“Up until now, we haven’t come to that point,” she told the local Hallandsposten newspaper. “That could change in ten years.”

According to Sweden’s hate speech laws, for an image or statement to represent “incitement to hatred”, it needs to threaten or disparage a group of persons in connection to race, colour, national or ethnic origin, religious belief or sexual orientation.

“If there had been anything in the text [posted alongside the flag] with more specific formulations about certain groups, for example homosexuals, the ruling could have been different,” Sjövall continued. “For me, there are no doubts about the decision not to prosecute.”

When the man was questioned in June, he told police he did not in fact support Islamic State.

“He claims that this is not an IS flag, but instead a symbol which has is used within Islam, and which has been used for many hundreds of years before it was misappropriated by IS,” his lawyer Björn Nilsson told the local Hallandsposten newspaper.

The black “Banner of the Eagle” is one of the flags flown by the prophet Mohammad in Islamic tradition. thelocal.se

Terror attacks in France blowback or false flag: Analyst

A prominent political commentator says the French government is funding and arming the ISIL and other terrorist groups across the Mideast region.

Soraya Sepahpour Ulrich, an independent researcher and writer focusing on US foreign policy, said in an interview with Press TV that the French government has a long history of supporting the militant groups currently causing havoc in the troubled region.

“France is arming the terrorists who were killing the people in Iraq and Syria,” she said.

Ulrich also strongly criticized the Western countries and their allies for supporting ISIL and other terrorist groups that are operating against the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. presstv.ir

Israelis wave black flags in protest against African refugees

Israelis hoisted an ISIS-inspired black and white flag in an anti-African march in Tel Aviv today, to protest a recent court ruling that rendered illegal a desert detention facility where African asylum seekers are being held without charge. The ISIS-style flags waved have the Hebrew word “bagatz,” meaning “High Court,” across the banners. Some of the marchers are holding them in tandem with Israeli flags, but others hold the handmade ISIS-style drapes alone.

Simone Wilson, the Jewish Journal‘s foreign correspondent in Israel, is covering the protest now in south Tel Aviv in an African refugee neighborhood where Israeli youngsters have taken over the streets and attempted to break into African-owned businesses. She is live-tweeting the protest and captured the backers of the ISIS aesthetic: a soldier in uniform, settler leader Baruch Marzel, and Mai Golan, the anti-African darling of Israel’s right-wing who soared to fame two summers ago when she declared in a similar march, “I am a proud racist,” and shortly after took a position in the city government.

Israel’s High Court decided in late September that Holot, an “open residential facility” where Africans incarcerated are granted afternoon leave from the prison but must return under lock and key at night, is illegal. The Africans jailed there have committed no crime, but their lack of status as protected persons have left them vulnerable to an interpretation of an Israeli law aimed at jailing those who cross the Jewish state’s borders in order to commit violent crimes. African seeking asylum are protected under International conventions barring imprisonment, which the court acknowledged last month. Yet the demonstrating Israelis are furious over the verdict, which will let Africans out of Holot in the next three months. They represent a nationalist sect of Israeli society that does not want any African non-Jews present in the country. For such activists as Marzel, the court’s decision to release the asylum seekers back to Tel Aviv is “more dangerous to Israel than ISIS.” mondoweiss.net

Media buries bombshell Turkey false flag attack

Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government was caught planning a false flag attack on ISIL rebels in Syria according to audio recordings released today on YouTube.   Erdogan warned Syria that any attacks on the shrine to an 11th century religious figure revered by Turks would cause a military response by Turkey.   The shrine is located just inside Syria on the border with Turkey.  There are no reports that any party in Syria has attacked the shrine. (Syrian False Flag, Mar 24)

A false flag operation could mobilized much needed support for Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP), which is facing major challenges in March 30 local elections. Since December 17, audio tapes of secret wiretaps exposed criminal behavior by Erdogan and his cronies.  The PM’s response has been varied but a clue to the desperation came when Erdogan said that he would be vindicated of all charges when his party received an endorsement from the people in the elections, now just days away.

Today’s Zaman reported:

In the voice recording [Turkey’s] Foreign Minister “, National Intelligence Organization (MİT) Undersecretary “, Foreign Ministry Undersecretary ” and Deputy Chief of General Staff Gen. are heard discussing possible intervention into Syria and possible reactions from the world.

“An operation against ISIL has international legitimacy. We will define it as al Qaeda. There are no issues on the al Qaeda framework. When it comes to the Suleyman Shah tomb, it’s about the protection of national soil,” a voice presented as that of foreign ministry undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioglu says.  Turkey says Syria security leak ‘villainous’ as YouTube blocked, Today’s Zaman, Mar 27

The audio tape of a secret wiretap was broadcast by X on YouTube.. After Twitter served as the medium for most leaked audio tapes, the PM banned the service.  He may now follow through on threats to ban YouTube after today’s release.

On April 24, I suggested the likelihood of a false flag:

The Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan (left), is a desperate man. He faces a test of his government in the March 30 local elections in Turkey. If his party candidates (AK Party) fail to maintain their current standings, the PM will face a loss of his tyrannical power. If the AK Party results for mayoral and other local offices drop significantly, Erdogan could soon face prosecution for massive corruption.  Syrian False Flag – Turkey’s PM is Desperate, OpEdNews, Mar 24  

Erdogan is cornered. His AK Party needs to outperform expectations in the local elections or he will lose support and the ability to manhandle the Turkish courts and police to avoid investigation and prosecution. If the AKP dips below the 2009 local election results or worse, those offended and harmed by the Erdogan onslaught of character assassination and crushing use of raw power will rally and demand investigation and prosecution.

What does a national leader do when his false flag operation is revealed in audio recordings?

Erdogan may well need to resort to the tried and true method of preserving power — election fraud. Absent a successful theft of the election, it may be time for Erdogan to seek exile in Sudan, a suggestion offered by the main opposition CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu.

Jimmy Pop Early life and education:

Pop was born in Trappe, Pennsylvania, and is of Jewish, German, and Native American descent. He was raised Lutheran but ceased practicing just when his parents approved doing so. He mentions that he is of Jewish ethnicity but does not actually consider himself Jewish:

I have the blood in me, but I’m not considered part of the tribe. When my family came over here, on my father’s side they were all rabbis. They changed their name from Hershell to Hershey and one of their younger grandchildren or whatever became the Hershey Bar guy. I never got any money out of it… I have American Indian in me and lots of German, which works really well with the Jew. It’s just a big mixed bag. Somewhere along the line, my parents were raised Lutheran and as soon as I didn’t have to go anymore, I wasn’t into it. So I wasn’t raised Jewish, but being in the music business, of course, I have Jewish managers. So I’m always up for the holidays.
