None Of The Seven Foiled UK Terror Plots Was Directed From Syria.  Has Cameron misled MP’s?

None Of The Seven Foiled UK Terror Plots Was Directed From Syria. Has Cameron misled MP’s?

None of the seven terror plots foiled in the UK over the past year was directed from Syria, senior MPs have been told by security and intelligence sources.

Despite David Cameron’s claim that the plots were ‘linked to’ or ‘inspired by’ ISIL, MPs have ascertained there is no evidence that any of them were actually coordinated by the Islamists’ command and control centre in Raqqa.

The admission is a serious challenge to the case for RAF bombing in Syria as it counters the hints from some Tory – and Labour – MPs that ISIL in Syria had to be targeted with airstrikes because it poses a ‘direct’ threat to the UK.

HuffPost UK has been told that in the run up to the Syria vote in the Commons, senior Shadow Cabinet ministers and senior MPs in other parties asked detailed questions about the nature of the threat posed by ISIL.

When pressed, senior intelligence officials representing the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) said that the seven foiled British terror plots over the past 12 months were either ‘lone wolf’ types, from individuals radicalised or ‘inspired by’ Islamist propaganda, or ‘linked’ to ISIL in other ways.

MP were further briefed that there was some suggestion that the Paris attacks may have been directed from Syria, although the intelligence was far from firm.

But there was no evidence of any of the potential UK attacks being directed in a similar way, even though the nature of the threat could change at some point in the future.

Some MPs were persuaded to vote for bombing in Syria after being briefed confidentially by the PM’s National Security Adviser Sir Mark Lyall Grant and other officials.

Rothschild, Cheney & Murdoch links with Syrian Oil

Rothschild, Cheney & Murdoch links with Syrian Oil

A fantastic article by Craig Murray

The Times on Saturday carried an article on ISIS’ oil interests, Syria and Turkey. Nowhere does it inform its readers that the owner of the newspaper, Rupert Murdoch, has a vested interest in this subject through his role and shares in Genie Energy, an Israeli company granted oil rights in Syria by the Israeli government. Dick Cheney and Lord Rothschild are also shareholders.

No, they really are. This is not a conspiracy theory. It is a conspiracy.

That Israel should grant oil rights within Syria is of course a striking example of contempt for international law, but then that is the basis on which Israel normally operates. Of course Genie’s share value will be substantially boosted by the installation of a neo-con puppet regime in Damascus which can be bought to underwrite the oil concession granted by Israel. Contempt for international law has been the single most important defining characteristic of neo-conservatism, and the need to uphold international law the recurring theme of this blog. I never thought the UK government would make the withdrawal of its support for the concept of international law explicit, as Cameron has done by removing the obligation to comply with international law from the Ministerial Code. That is truly, truly disgraceful.

But to return to Murdoch’s oil interests in Syria, it seems to me a fundamental flaw that when Fox News, Sky News, the Times, the Sun and Murdoch’s numerous other media outlets bang the drum for Western military action in Syria, there is no requirement for the consumer of this propaganda to be told that the outlet is pushing a policy in line with the financial interests of its owner. Even for those actively seeking information, there is no register of the interests of media proprietors.

Blair welcomes Syria airstrikes – No surprise there then !

Blair welcomes Syria airstrikes – No surprise there then !

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has praised the British government’s decision to extend airstrikes against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) from Iraq into Syria, calling it an “important” decision to confront threats “within our home.”

Speaking to an audience at the Library of Congress in Washington, Blair insisted that defeating the terror group on the ground is only the first step in tackling extremism, claiming the ideology itself must be eradicated.

On Wednesday evening British MPs voted overwhelmingly in favor of launching airstrikes against IS targets in Syria.

Mere hours after the vote, RAF Tornado jets carried out bombing raids on oilfields in the east of the country.

However, Blair cautioned that airstrikes are “only a necessary beginning.”

“For Europe, there is a huge calculation to be made. This security threat is at our door. It is actually within our home,” he said.

“We have a paramount interest in defeating it, which is why last night’s vote in the British House of Commons was so important.

“Europe has to create, within its nation states, the armed force capability to allow us not just to play our part, but to lead.”

Blair, who led the UK into the invasion of Iraq in 2003, said extremist ideology must be tackled in order to defeat IS. He claimed key aspects of IS ideology stretch “deep into parts of Muslim society.”

“A belief in innate hostility between Islam and the West is not the preserve of the few.

“Of course a large majority of Muslims completely reject Daesh (IS)-like jihadism and the terrorism which comes with it.

“However, in many Muslim countries large numbers also believe that the CIA or Jews were behind 9/11. Clerics who proclaim that non-believers and apostates must be killed or call for jihad against Jews have Twitter followings running into millions … The ideology has deep roots. We have to reach right the way down and uproot it.”

Danger is imminent, we need to bomb Syria – UK defense secretary

Danger is imminent, we need to bomb Syria – UK defense secretary

Ahead of the vote on expanding the UK’s air operation against Islamic State to Syria, the British defense secretary said terror attacks similar to Paris and Brussels could ‘easily happen’ in London. He called for preventive airstrikes on terrorists in Syria.

In an exclusive interview with the Telegraph, Britain’s Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said: “The threat to the UK is extremely high. An attack is highly likely so we have to respond.”

“What happened in Paris and Brussels could easily happen in London,” Fallon said, adding that it could as well be Manchester or Glasgow.

The defense secretary urged against pulling punches against Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL) terrorists.

“These aren’t people you can negotiate with. You can only deal with them by force,” he said.

The Royal Air Force (RAF) is already “making a difference in Iraq,” Fallon said, adding “we need to hit ISIL harder and deal with this death cult once and for all.”

The defense secretary’s interview comes a day after “Don’t Bomb Syria” mass protests in London, where thousands of protesters took to the streets to make their voices heard in a rally organized by the Stop the War coalition.

ISIL Oil is Going to Turkey

ISIL Oil is Going to Turkey

In the wake of downing of the Russian Su-24 bomber jet by Turkish Air Force president  Putin claimed that Ankara appears to be an accomplice of terrorists, as it is purchasing oil in regions of Syria captured by extremists, and he is on solid ground in saying so, the German newspaper Bild reported.

Turkey has turned into a major consumer of oil from the so-called Islamic State extremist group, the author of the article continued. Turkish businessmen sign deals on oil purchases with jihadists, allowing them to get revenues of $10 million weekly.

The Kremlin long time ago obtained information that oil from ISIL-seized territories in Syria is being transferred to Turkey. And the fact that Russian Aerospace Forces started to conduct more attacks against ISIL infrastructure couldn’t be overlooked by Ankara.

According to Bild, Turkish policies regarding jihadists are not quite transparent: although Ankara provided Americans with opportunities to use the country’s airbase for launching attacks against ISIL positions, Erdogan allows terrorists sneaking into Syria to go through Turkey without hindrance.

MURDERED BY ISIS

MURDERED BY ISIS

The Daily Mails headline for Sunday 15 November 2015 .

Screen Shot 2015-11-15 at 00.15.46

Let us take a look at who are the people who helped create and arm ISIS.

We posted an article on 12th October this year from Sputnik News showing how the US congress armed the Islamic State (ISIL) extremists by providing weapons to the “moderate” opposition, former CIA counter terrorism officer and Senate Foreign Relations Committee senior investigator John Kiriakou told Sputnik.

http://loucollins.uk/2015/10/12/us-is-arming-isis-through-moderate-opposition-former-cia-officer/

A few days after that article was posted we found this article questioning where ISIS had got so many Toyota trucks.

http://loucollins.uk/2015/10/15/isis-toyota-trucks-were-supplied-by-us-state-department/

And article entitled “What the West has given Syrian Rebels” from The Independent back in August 2013 detailing Britains donations to the  Syrian Rebels, it shows items such as six 4×4 SUVs, hmm could we have put a little piece in the puzzle of who is aiding ISIS,

Seeing headlines such as MURDERED BY ISIS in The Mail and nothing about who is helping them raises many questions.

Same script as 9/11 : Syrian passport is found on the body of a suicide bomber at the Stade de France

Same script as 9/11 : Syrian passport is found on the body of a suicide bomber at the Stade de France

A Syrian passport has been retrieved from one of the suicide bombers who blew himself up outside the Stade de France stadium in Paris last night, according to two French police officers.

The second of the suicide bombers is believed to have been as young as 15 years old.

Meanwhile, witnesses reported hearing at least two of the terrorists at the Bataclan Theatre speaking perfect French.

A Syrian passport has been found on the body of one of the suicide bombers who blew himself up outside the Stade de France stadium in Paris last night

Two suicide blasts and a bomb exploded outside the stadium last night, killing six people, as part of a series of coordinated attacks across the capital which left at least 127 dead

Two of the eight terrorists have now been identified: the man with the Syrian passport and a second who is believed by police to have been French.

According to French daily El Figaro, investigators have recordings of two of the terrorists at the Bataclan communicating in French.

However it has not yet been confirmed whether the Syrian passport was authentic, or was one of the many forged passports flooding into Europe with the refugee crisis.

All died during the attack, with seven killing themselves in suicide blasts and the last being shot by police.

Four of the attackers died at the Bataclan Theatre, three died at the Stade de France football stadium and the last on the Voltaire Boulevard.

A witness present at the Bataclan Theatre told Reuters that none of the other attackers were over 25, and all had brown hair.

CIA and Saudis to give Syrian ‘rebels’ weapons capable of downing commercial airliners

CIA and Saudis to give Syrian ‘rebels’ weapons capable of downing commercial airliners

Wednesday brought a veritable smorgasbord of “new” information about the Russian passenger jet which fell out of the sky above the Sinai Peninsula last weekend.

First there was an audio recording from ISIS’ Egyptian affiliate reiterating that they did indeed “down” the plane. Next, the ISIS home office in Raqqa (or Langley or Hollywood) released a video of five guys sitting in the front yard congratulating their Egyptian “brothers” on the accomplishment.

Then the UK grounded air traffic from Sharm el-Sheikh noting that the plane “may well” have had an “explosive device” on board.

Finally, US media lit up with reports that according to American “intelligence” sources, ISIS was probably responsible for the crash.

Over the course of the investigation, one question that’s continually come up is whether militants could have shot the plane down. Generally speaking, the contention that ISIS (or at least IS Sinai) has the technology and/or the expertise to shoot down a passenger jet flying at 31,000 feet has been discredited by “experts” and infrared satellite imagery.

But that’s nothing the CIA can’t fix.

US sends special forces into Syria to act as human shields for terrorist groups

US sends special forces into Syria to act as human shields for terrorist groups

Editor’s note: who said that it’s ok for the United States military to send troops into a sovereign nation and support terrorist groups who want to destroy the government? Is this not a war crime and a crime against humanity?

Obama’s decision to send Special Forces into Syria is being widely viewed as a US military escalation in the country.

The troop dispatch also signals that the US trying to forestall Russian successes in wiping out Washington’s regime-change assets in Syria.

In short, the US Special Forces are being used as “human shields” to curb Russian air strikes against anti-government mercenaries, many of whom are instrumental in Washington’s regime-change objective in Syria.

First of all, we need to view a host of developments, including the hastily convened “peace talks” in Vienna, as a response by the US and its allies to the game-changing military intervention by Russia. That intervention, beginning on September 30, has not only dealt massive blows to militants, it has completely changed the balance of forces to give the Assad government the upper hand in the war against foreign-backed extremists. That, in turn, has sent the US-led powers trying to topple Damascus into disarray.
