“Western Leaders Are Encouraging Terrorist Blood Bath in Syria” says Henningsen

December 3, 2012

Pat3_color21st Century Wire’s analyst Patrick Henningsen talks with RT News about the West and their Gulf state proxies’ backing of terrorist groups in Syria in order to accelerate regime change in Syria and to further destabilize the Middle East region. Washington and Britain are actively supporting al Qaeda and other FSA-related foreign fighters in Syria, a policy which is an international war crime and is costing thousands of innocent lives, and billions of dollars to western taxpayers and to the people in Syria.

So, How Many Syrian Terrorists Come from Libya?

November 14, 2012

The U.S. supported opposition which overthrew Libya’s Gadaffi was largely comprised of Al Qaeda terrorists

According to a 2007 report by West Point’s Combating Terrorism Center’s center, the Libyan city of Benghazi was one of Al Qaeda’s main headquarters – and bases for sending Al Qaeda fighters into Iraq – prior to the overthrow of Gaddafi:

Al Qaeda is now largely in control of Libya.  Indeed, Al Qaeda flags were flown over the Benghazi courthouse once Gaddafi was toppled.

(Incidentally, Gaddafi was on the verge of invading Benghazi in 2011, 4 years after the West Point report cited Benghazi as a hotbed of Al Qaeda terrorists. Gaddafi claimed – rightly it turns out – that Benghazi was an Al Qaeda stronghold and a main source of the Libyan rebellion.  But NATO planes stopped him, and protected Benghazi.)

CNN, the Telegraph,  the Washington Times, and many other mainstream sources confirm that Al Qaeda terrorists from Libya have since flooded into Syria to fight the Assad regime.

Mainstream sources also confirm that the Syrian opposition is largely comprised of Al Qaeda terrorists.  See thisthisthisthisthisthisthisthisthis and this.

The U.S. has been arming the Syrian opposition since 2006. The post-Gaddafi Libyan government is also itself a top funder and arms supplier of the Syrian opposition.

TENSION: 3 Syrian Tanks Enter Demilitarized Zone in Golan Heights

November 3, 2012

IDF files complaint with UN forces after Syrian tanks enter buffer zone to take part in battles with rebels; army also raises alert level in area

By Yoav Zitun

Three Syrian tanks entered the demilitarized buffer zone in the central Golan Heights on Saturday, leading the IDF to raise its alert level in the area.

The Israeli army has also lodged a complaint with UN forces enforcing the ceasefire in the Golan Heights.

The Syrian tanks entered the village of Bir-Ajam, located just a few kilometers from an IDF outpost, and took part in battles against Syrian rebels.

Over the past 24 hours a number of mortar shells fired as part of the Syrian infighting landed in the demilitarized zone. One of them may have been the cause of a fire that erupted Saturday at Mount Hosek, located near the Israel-Syria border.

Also on Saturday, Syrian rebels launched a dawn assault on a strategic airbase in the north of the country, trying to disrupt strikes by warplanes and helicopters that pound rebel-held towns and give the regime of President Bashar Assad a major edge in the civil war.

The assault, reported by activists, comes a day before the start of a key international conference in Qatar at which the United States and its allies aim to reorganize the opposition’s political leadership and unite their ranks. The leadership-in-exile has been widely seen as ineffective and out of touch with rebel fighters on the ground.

Rebel forces attacked the Taftanaz airbase early Saturday morning in fighting with government forces that continued into the afternoon, the anti-regime activist Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Joining Syrian rebels in the attack were fighters from Jabhat al-Nusra, an al-Qaeda-inspired Islamic militant group made up of foreign jihadis, according to the Observatory. Al-Nusra fighters, who are considered among the most experienced and disciplined among the opposition forces, have led attacks on other airbases in the north in past months.

The Taftanaz base mainly houses military helicopters, near the main highway between the capital Damascus and the northern city of Aleppo, where rebels and the military have been battling for control for months.

Online activist videos claim to show the battle, with rebels firing rockets and mortars, and smoke rising over buildings and an airstrip area. An activist speaking in the video identifies it as an attack by rebels and Jabhat al-Nusra on the base.

The videos appear genuine and are consistent with other Associated Press reporting in the area.

‘Millions in Harlem March’ Aims to Stop US, NATO War-making in Libya

August 4, 2011

By Saeed Shabazz
FINAL CALL
August 4, 2011

NEW YORK (FinalCall.com) – Activists representing a broad coalition of anti-war organizations, the Nation of Islam, the political left, Islamic organizations and a plethora of grassroots community organizations recently stood together on the stage of the Assembly Hall at the Riverside Church, proclaiming that “all roads lead to Harlem” for the Aug. 13 “Millions in Harlem March” to stop the bombing of Libya.

There is a huge gap between Western Media reports in Libya and what is actually going on there.

“Where are we going to be on Aug. 13?” asked Sara Flounders, co-director of the International Action Center, the main sponsors of the Riverside Church event. “In Harlem!” the standing room only crowd shouted back.

“President Barack Obama never believed that his actions against Libya could galvanize the movement that will be in the streets of Harlem on Aug. 13”, said Abdul Akbar Muhammad, the international representative of the Nation of Islam, in response to a question from The Final Call. Marching alongside of the Nation of Islam the second Saturday in August will be members of the “White Left and other progressives, Pan Africanists, Black grassroots organizations and national Islamic organizations,” he added.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan will be the keynote speaker at the Harlem march. “Min. Farrakhan will deliver a dynamic speech from 110th Street to 125th Street,” said Mr. Muhammad. The march will start at 110th Street.

The United Nations Security Council March 17 passed resolution 1973 by a vote of 10 in favor with five abstentions, authorizing the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to begin a “no-fly zone” over Libyan air space, alleging President Muammar Gadhafi was targeting civilians in the North African nation.

Some Libyans had begun anti-Gadhafi demonstrations in February in the city of Benghazi, which turned into armed rebellion. The UN offered no proof Libya’s leader was killing unarmed civilians, though he vowed to fight those who had taken up arms against the government.

INNOCENT? There is still no evidence that Gaddafi had "gunned down innocent protestors" back in Feb 2011.

The U.S. and France March 18 started bombing so-called military targets, but the damage done by a “peace effort,” according to some observers, was more costly than what the Libyan leader had been accused of. Then came attacks on personal compounds that killed Libyan officials as well as a son of Col. Gadhafi and his grandchildren. NATO bombs hit the home of Libya’s leader at least twice as Western nations declared he had to go, pushing a policy of regime change.

Cynthia McKinney, a six-term former congresswoman from Georgia, was the keynote speaker for the Riverside Church rally. She told The Final Call she agreed with Mr. Muhammad’s assessment. “This will galvanize public opinion, as people see this as being important to them. Obama certainly stumbled this time,” referring to the president’s continued support for the NATO bombing of Libya. According to news outlets, the Obama administration is sending $10 million a day to NATO for the bombing of Libya.

Ms. McKinney had been on an 11-city tour telling packed audiences about her experiences in Tripoli in the early days of the NATO/UN aggression.

“There is definitely a buzz in the streets around Aug. 13,” said Larry Holmes of the Newark-based Bail Out the People Not the Banks movement. “Expect people to be in the streets of Harlem in numbers,” he said.

Information about the street mobilization for the march may be found at www.millionmarchinharlem.com. There are organizing teams in all five New York boroughs that have saturated neighborhoods with green posters announcing the march.

“The people are very excited about the march, and Min. Louis Farrakhan as the keynote speaker is great. We are going to fill up Malcolm X Boulevard,” said one volunteer.

During a June 15 press conference at a hotel across the street from the United Nations, Min. Farrakhan told the media the “United Nations, U.S.-sponsored, NATO-led bombing of the North African country of Libya” was the work of “a coalition of demons,” governments who have joined together to assassinate Col. Gadhafi.

But even some who voted for the initial resolutions and allowed the resolutions to pass have expressed reservation, if not outright regret. The African Union, in particular, has been calling for and working for a negotiated settlement only to be disregarded by Western nations intent on putting a new Libyan government in place.

The South African ambassador to the UN, Baso Sangqu, told the 15-member Security Council July 28 that his country’s delegation “echoes the African Union demand for an immediate pause in the fighting and in the NATO bombing.”

“We have noted the calls that ‘Gaddafi must go.’ We maintain that such statements do not bring us closer to a political solution,” the South African ambassador said. South Africa is occupying a rotating seat on the Security Council and supported the initial resolutions.

In a speech that was not widely covered by the media, Ambassador Sangqu said, “South Africa remains concerned about the implementation of resolutions 1970 and 1973. Taking sides in an internal conflict situation to institute regime change in Libya sets a dangerous precedent that will surely damage the credibility of the Security Council.”

“Clearly action focused on a military solution has not had its intended purpose, instead it has worked to destabilize the country even further,” he added.

Gabon and Nigeria also initially voted yes on resolutions 1970 and 1973, but the African Union has strongly condemned the bombing of any African nation.

The UN Secretary General’s special envoy to Libya announced July 26 through a press office that the “two sides remain far apart on reaching agreement on a political solution.” The two sides are the Gadhafi government and the rebel Transnational Council, which the U.S., France, Italy, Britain have recognized as the legitimate government of Libya.

The two sides, however, “have reaffirmed their desire to continue to engage with the UN in the search for a solution,” said special envoy Abdel-Elah Al-Khatib, a member of Jordan’s parliament. Libyan Prime Minister Baghdadi Al-Mahmoud reiterated his government’s previous positions against the NATO air strikes and against the removal of Libya’s president.

“There comes a time when people have no alternative but resistance,” Viola Plummer, co-founder of the December 12th Movement one of the sponsoring organizations for the Harlem march, said July 30.

“This march will revitalize the Pan African movement. It will broaden our people’s world view and demonstrate the need for Africans to unite in our own political and economic interests internationally,” she added.

“We must expose the UN Security Council machinations, Western imperialism; the attack on Black people in the U.S. and all collaborations at every turn,” Ms. Plummer said.

March organizers say the Harlem event has garnered worldwide attention. One dignitary supporting the march is Father Miguel d’Escoto Brockman, a former Nicaraguan foreign minister and the 63rd president of the UN General Assembly.

During his speech at the press conference announcing the march, Father Brockman said the event was important in light of how the media “systemically deceived” the American people.

Meanwhile the killing of a major rebel commander by compatriots raised questions about how the group could stay together and raised again reports that elements of Al-Qaeda were heavily involved in the rebel effort. (See related story on page 12.)

The Chinese news service Xinhuanet reported July 31 NATO’s claim of bombing three satellite dishes in Tripoli to “stop” what was labeled “terror broadcasts” by President Gadhafi. However, there are Twitter messages, also July 31, that say Libya television is still on the air.

Just before the Aug. 1 start of Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting and prayer, NATO bombs struck Tripoli, and officials in Brussels would not rule other more strikes—though they were worried about a possible backlash in the Muslim world about strikes during the sacred month. “Tripoli shook with the sound of several explosions as NATO warplanes roared overhead doing what they have been doing since March, striking at what are supposedly Al Qathafi strategic infrastructure, particularly in the Libyan capital, Tripoli,” the Tripoli Post reported. “In normal times, much of the economy in Muslim countries world-wide shuts down as everyone enters a 30-day period of all-day fasting, prayer and the strict avoidance of conflict. But for Libyans this year it is an altogether different proposition. Libyans worry about sanctions and NATO strikes during this month.”

“There is an ongoing armed internal conflict as the rebels from the eastern part of the country battle on in order to reach their aim, of toppling or forcing Libyan leader Muammar Al Qathafi to step down from his high chair. They are involved in a battle that is barely making progress at the best of times, and with NATO forces, attempting to bomb Al Qathafi out of office,” the English language publication said.

“The NATO alliance thought it could finish it off before the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, in time for a new government to take shape. They failed and this month could become a perilous black hole threatening to undermine their whole campaign,” the Tripoli Post observed Aug. 1. “Muslims are not allowed to fight amongst themselves during Ramadan; they are also not allowed to attack another nation. However, they will fight back if they are attacked first, they are allowed to do that.”

Norway Hate Attacks Make Anti-Islam Taboo Cause as Labor Surges

August 4, 2011

Aug 3, 2011

Anders Behring Breivik’s efforts to galvanize anti-Islam sentiment in Norway after last month’s hate killings have given the ruling party he sought to destroy its biggest tailwind in more than a decade.

Support for Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg’s Labor Party, targeted by Breivik in the July 22 bombing and shootings that left 77 dead, soared to more than 40 percent, two polls showed this week. If a vote were held today, that would be the best result since the 1985 election. Approval of Stoltenberg’s handling of the crisis is at more than 90 percent, polls show.

“It’s the first time in Norway that the popularity rating of an elected politician is higher than that of the King,” said Frank Aarebrot, a politics professor at the University of Bergen, in a phone interview. Since the attacks, Labor’s policies mean it enjoys “the strongest legitimacy. My guess is that the effect will last a couple of years.”

Breivik’s 1,500-page manifesto, published a few hours before his killing spree, railed against the “Islamization” of Norway and Europe, a trend he said he would try to halt through his terror acts. Yet the anti-immigration Progress Party that Breivik had sought to champion now faces a backlash as a key campaigning point is stigmatized ahead of local elections on Sept. 12. That’s left the group, Parliament’s second-biggest, with an identity crisis.

‘Low Profile’

“They will try to keep a low profile on immigration, immigrants, threats from the Muslims,” Anders Todal Jenssen, a political science professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, said by phone. Without the attacks “they would have focused on immigration as a very important issue,” he said.

Backing for Labor, which was re-elected in 2009 on pledges to improve welfare without raising taxes, surged 11 percentage points in the month through July 30 to 41.7 percent, the highest result since September 1998, according to a Synovate poll. A TNS Gallup poll for TV2 showed a 9.2 point rise in support for Labor to 40.5 percent, a 12-year high. The opposition Conservatives slipped almost five points to 23.7 percent in the Synovate poll, while the Progress Party, of which Breivik was a member from 1999 to 2004, dropped three points to 16.5 percent.

Since the killings, more Norwegians say they now embrace multiculturalism, according to an Aug. 1 InFact AS poll published by Verdens Gang. Twenty-six percent of those questioned said they were more positive toward a multi-ethnic Norway than before the attacks. Nine percent were more negative and 49 percent said they hadn’t changed their opinion.

‘Lost Its Legitimacy’

“The anti-Islam argument has lost its legitimacy,” said Johannes Bergh, a political scientist at the Institute for Social Research in Oslo, in a phone interview. “You can’t make the type of arguments that the Progress Party has been making in terms of Islam being a danger to society or a threat to Norwegian culture. You just can’t say that anymore.”

The prime minister’s party is now poised to win next month’s local elections. Polls before July 22 had shown it was set to lose.

Stoltenberg isn’t the first leader to see his approval ratings rise following attacks against his citizens. Support for former U.S. President George W. Bush jumped to 90 percent after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, according to Gallup. Backing later fell below 30 percent at the end of his second term.

Stoltenberg has won admiration from voters for avoiding traps that risk polarizing the debate in Norway. He has even urged lawmakers and media not to vilify anti-immigration policies.

‘Witch Hunt’

“We should not start a witch hunt against those opinions that we don’t agree with,” he told reporters on Aug. 1.

Bush, by contrast, in 2001 pledged to hunt down those responsible for the September attacks, and said he wanted Osama bin Laden “dead or alive.”

Siv Jensen, who as the leader of Norway’s Progress Party has warned of “sneak-Islamization,” said Breivik’s attacks shouldn’t silence the immigration debate.

“In the time that lies ahead, we need even more freedom of expression,” Jensen said in an Aug. 1 interview. “It is important to me that we all can combine freedom of expression with dignity and I think we will manage that, even if it is a new terrain for us.”

Still, the party may need to modify its tone in the debate, Jensen told reporters this week.

Immigration

“We’ve all changed our behavior and we won’t be the same as before,” Jensen said.

Before Breivik’s attacks, the Progress Party had risen in popularity as voters, like their Nordic peers in Sweden, Denmark and Finland, reacted to a rising intake of immigrants.

Norway received the second-highest number of new asylum- seekers per inhabitant after Sweden last year, according to a survey of 44 industrialized nations by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Non-western immigrants and their children last year accounted for 9.4 percent of Norway’s population. In Germany, non-western immigrants made up 6 percent, data from the national statistics offices of each country show.

Voters upset with this trend should be free to say so, Stoltenberg told reporters on July 27.

“We have to be very clear to distinguish between extreme views, which are completely legal and legitimate,” he said. “What is not legitimate is to try to implement those extreme views by using violence.”

NORWAY MASSACRE CATALYST FOR REALIGNMENT OF EUROPEAN RIGHT WING MOVEMENTS

July 29, 2011

By Patrick Henningsen

The Norway Massacre has grabbed the lion’s share headlines around the world, but not solely due to the human tragedy element of the event. A larger ripple effect is because Anders Breivik’s allegedly authored a 1,500 page idealogical “manifesto”, one which is currently being dissected by the media, political institutions, law enforcement and academics throughout Europe and contains the new seeds for an extemist Far Right movement.

What is important to note here is that the conclusions and perceptions drawn from his modus operandi will have a fundamental effect of the position of Far Right and Left Wing extremist movements in the near future.

Both genuine terrorist and false flag terror events will always redefine the genre. There exist many different definitions of “terrorism”, most have these contain premeditated, politically motivated violence or the threat of violence, targeting civilians, being perceived as a non-state actor, all in the hopes of “sending a message” to the general public or a government.

We’ve already established that the mass shooting in Norway was no mere random attack, as those student victims were specifically targeted, making it a clear case of political assassination on a mass scale not seen before in recent history. By anyone’s measure, such an event can be classed as a “game changer” in terms extremist political agendas.

In this case, it was the Young Protestant Labour Party of Norway, who only days before publicly condemned Israel’s apartheid system, opting instead to recognized a bona fide Palestine State. Politically, Norway was poised for a complete withdraw of any support for Israel, including divestment and academic boycotts . Breivik responded with a violent massacre of that party’s future generation. 

Hence, Anders Breivik has not been classified as a terrorist in the vain of an Al Qaeda or an IRA, rather he has already been labeled by the media as a Right Wing “political extremist”.

What is traditional Right Wing Extremism? The old board looked as follows: nationalism, racism, anti-immigration and xenophobia, fascism and a strong self-sufficient state. As a result, of the many-sided concept of ‘right wing’, it consists of many different factions, groups and organizations. The same can be said for the Left Wing.

So is Europe returning to the days when its cities and towns were being ravaged by a cacophony of real terror and state sponsored terror groups like NATO’s own Operation GLADIO, The Red Brigades, IRA, Red Army Faction, Action Directe, Black September, and the PLFP?

Out of that chaos came order. Are we looking at a new, reordering of the political landscape, a New Order? In Europe, as in the wider world, it certainly looks that way, and big changes are afoot.

The European Common Market and Union was introduced by European elite bureaucrats in order to attain stability and forge new alliances. Following the Cold War and the tumbling of the Berlin Wall, the EU came in with a bang and enjoyed a brief honeymoon up until the long, protracted recession which became evident in 2007. Currently, the once solid Eurozone is  fraying at the edges, as the International banks have been preying shamelessly on many of its fledgling economies, including Greece, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Poland and Iceland. The result of this economic trend is a marginalisation of the middle class and the ever-widening gap between the lower classes and the financial and bureaucratic elite.

This of course, is a recipe for fomenting the worst aspects of Right Wing extremism, as well as Left Wing- in case anyone hasn’t noticed, previously banished anarchists are currently back in fashion in Greece and Spain. Breivik’s manifesto, like it or not, will be a centre of influence, particularly for young Right Wing foot soldiers, for the sad reason that they will be inspired by his armed action and bravado. Interestingly enough, Breivik’s supposed support of Israel and Zionism will garner sympathy from previously stringent anti-Jewish Neo Nazi affiliates, and this is potentially the most massive shift on the chess board of the Far Right. Pro-Israeli Right Wing extremists and Neo Nazis.

Although at its early stages, recent events like this will have a massive impact in the near future and should be monitored. These shifts in alliances and groups will also be fueled by the mainstream media’s typically lazy and surface-oriented take on events and political score keeping. All the while, real changes brew under their radar.

Far right politics also push the belief that both superiority and inferiority is an innate reality between individuals and groups, normally rejecting the liberal tenet of social equality. Extremists often support segregation, like we have seen with Breivik’s reaction against multiculturalism. This is not surprising from the right, and although Europe enjoyed a brief respite from its ugly head over the last 20 years, the destruction of the economy and the state’s eventual inability to deliver its social benefits to the growing ranks of unemployed will certainly allow the xenophobic card its chance to return to the political table.

On many levels, this is a recipe for civil unrest in Europe, and many activists will unfortunately be looking for the greatest impact- or the biggest bang for their buck. Breivik succeeded here- hitting his ideological enemies in the heart.

What this space, watch the moves on the political chess board.

NORWAY GUNMAN BREIVIK COULD BE PUT IN MENTAL INSTITUTION IF FOUND INSANE SAYS EXPERT

July 28, 2011

RIA Novosti
July 28, 2011

Anders Behring Breivik, the principal suspect in the twin terror attacks in Norway last Friday, may undergo compulsory medical treatment following a medical examination, a Swedish law expert said on Wednesday.

Lawyer Bernt Birkeland said if the medical exam proves that Breivik was insane, he would be put into a mental institution for compulsory treatment, but if he was mentally stable he could be sentenced to life in prison.

INSANITY PLEA? Breivik could be institutionalised if deemed insane by court.

Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, said on Tuesday that “this whole case indicated that he [Breivik] is insane.”

Norwegian Prosecutor Christian Hatlo said on Tuesday that if charged with crimes against humanity, Breivik could face up to 30 years in prison. In line with the laws in Norway, a court’s verdict could be revised as many times as possible and therefore the prison sentence could be prolonged as well.

During a closed hearing at a Norwegian court on Monday, Breivik, 32, admitted to carrying out a bombing in Oslo that killed seven people, and a mass shooting at a Labor Party youth camp on the nearby island of Utoya.

Police have now revised the death toll from both attacks from 93 to 76.

The Norwegian Telegraph Bureau reported on Wednesday that Brevik was a member of a gun club in Oslo between 2005 and 2007 and from June 2010 until recently.

MIND CONTROL: WAS NORWAY SHOOTER AN MK-ULTRA MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE?

July 27, 2011

By Stone Pinkerton
21st Century Wire

One thing is evident when observing the photos and statements of the apprehended Norwegian gunman Anders Behring Breivik. He is devoid of any emotion or articulation when making reference to the violent acts he is currently on trial for.

This of course begs the obvious question. From a textbook point of view, Anders fits the standard modus operandi for a man who has literally been up and down Jacob’s Ladder– a psychologically programmed super-soldier, sent out to do an evil deed for maximum social impact.

Whether you believe he acted under instruction, or alone as the classic ‘lone gunman’ will depend on your own ability to weigh possibility against probability. Indeed, we can all agree that to some degree, he is soldier… of sorts. On whose behalf he is acting is still anyone’s guess.

On its face, this story has all the makings of a perfect crime. Cleaner an operation there could not have been. By definition, it is textbook terrorist attack, designed and executed to achieve a political effect. His back story was already complete to an academic standard- a 1,500 page right-wing Likud-like, Zionist manifesto, a professionally edited video production loaded on to Youtube, online profiles and a comprehensive photo portfolio, kitted out in every costume imaginable. He was also a paid-up Mason and a member of the Knights Templar in Norway. And to top it all off, he gets arrested at the end, and will live to tell his story (if he survives custody). Can it get anymore perfect than that?

The operation has been very well planned, and very well thought out, which does not support a lone gunman theory. Anders could very well be the tip of a very big iceberg.

Here’s the rub. As I pointed out in my last article, Breivik’s hollow-point rampage was no random attack. His victims on that island camp were selected for their Pro-Palestinian political affiliations- even the wounded and dying were snuffed out via a head shot, making this incident, no mere terror attack, rather, a targeted mass political assassination. If you have studied similar events in the past, and there are many, this one looks less like a rampage, and too much like a “job”, or a mission.

THE MK ULTRA GLAZE: Breivik appears to show no remorse or ability to reflect on the incident.

His statements after the fact are completely sanitized, seemingly rehearsed, scripted even, and certainly devoid of any emotion or ability to reflect empathy in connection to the mass political culling of Norway’s Young Labour members which he alleged carried out only days before. By his own admission, Anders stated, “I did what I felt I had to do…” No regrets.

From a defense lawyer’s standpoint, one could definitely have some traction with an insanity plea. Any lawyer who couldn’t convince a jury that Breivik is anything less than an original nutter would have to be mentally handicapped himself. Exactly what kind of a “defense lawyer” marches out of a police station and into the arms of the waiting press only to announce that, ”Ladies and gentlemen, my client is GUILTY” ? You see, on every level, there is something very pre-fabricated about every aspect of this tragic incident. It appears so far that this gunman will be tried in court as a political actor, and not a pedestrian criminal.

A number of photos have already been released of Breivik in custody, depicting him in an almost trance-like state. He appears to be under the influence of something- hypnosis, medication, we don’t know exactly. For any students of the CIA’s once classified, illegal human research MK ULTRA program, this is where you would raise your hand and start asking questions.

The purpose of MK ULTRA was to develop trauma-based psychological triggers which could be imbedded in a subject’s mind and then activated by a handler in order for that subject to carry out certain rehearsed tasks. Among these tasked included political assassinations. By this token, the Norway Massacre and its post game show certainly fits nicely in such a scenario. Still, Breivik is  giving a flawless performance.

Breivik’s profile, and Hollywood extra photos were already on the news desks of editors within minutes of his apprehension, and if that’s not strange enough, allegedly, also, the arresting police already knew his name. This point was brought up by Channel 4 anchorman Jon Snow, who raised this oddity in a tweet, “What we don’t know is how the police knew the terrorist’s name before they arrested him”.

Other uncertainties will fester, and these are mostly fundamental forensic issues we face in a digital age. There is no evidence that Anders Breivik is author Andrew Berwick, or that he had anything to do with writing the so-called digital PDF “Manifesto” which, mind you, despite all of its twisted content, it is written in flawless English (not in Norwegian), which indicates an academic or professional English editor. Additionally, the “Marxist Hunter” badge visible in his now famous Amphibious Combat action shot has been Photoshopped into the picture by persons unknown. As we have pointed out, we still don’t know where all of these photos came from and how they were delivered to the media.

The red flags are already beginning to pop-up, as investigative police in Norway are still as yet, unable to establish any real link between Breivik and far right wing groups like the English football hooligan group, like the English Defense League, many of whom have already infiltrated by British intelligence. This development should throw a little more light on a pre-packaged trial by media which was underway from the early hours of this event happening this past weekend. Read the full report by Kurt Nimmo at Infowars here.

We run into these exact same problems when assuming that ‘jihadist messages’ and videos uploaded to websites, and grainy digital videos- are all authentic and are made by genuine, salt-of-the-earth, angry card-carrying Al Qaeda. Recent history has proven that in most cased, they were forged, faked and fabricated by Intel Center, AlSahib and other CIA/Pentagon run ‘media arms’.

A lot of the Guardian reading, consensus reality mob out there are probably thinking right now that the conspiracy theorists are going mental over this incident, and probably ”reading way too much into it”. I can only answer back saying, of course its provoking conspiracy theories- take a look at this story, look at this m.o. and look at this truck load of planted media collateral, photos and manifesto. This is a 21st century psy-op if there ever was one.

What’s potentially worse than this, is that we may have a Nordic, Aryan-looking Conan the Barbarian-type cult anti-hero on our hands here. Many a young foot soldier of the far right will be dazzled by Breivik’s spectacle. This is very real, and its ramifications will be unveiled later. That is perhaps the most frightening aspect of all this, in our brave new digital world.

Clearly, Anders Behring Breivik is now the front-runner to succeed the now defunct terror avatar, the man who put the “T” in terror, Osama bin Laden… with a twist.

Watch the political fall-out and the Norwegian, EU policy stances- particularly those concerning Israel, Libya, and security measures which take effect in the next few months, as these will give observers an indication of both qui bono, as well as what were the direct effects caused by Anders Breivik’s mind-bending massacre and running legal saga.

God help us, it seems we are entering another new video drome.

How much was the mind of Anders Behring Breivik conditioned and warped by Zionist propaganda as peddled with the assistance of Christian fundamentalism by much of the Western mainstream media and many web sites?

In his summary of what the monster had stated behind closed doors in court, Judge Heger said he had argued that he wanted to create “the greatest loss possible to Norway’s governing Labour Party”, which he accused of failing the country on immigration and opening the door to the “Muslim colonization” of Norway and all of Europe.

AGENT OF INFLUENCE: How much of Breivik's manifesto will influence public opinion and impact society?

There could not have been a more effective way of inflicting at a single stroke a great loss than gunning down many members of the Norwegian Labour Party’s youth wing, the Workers Youth League (AUF), which was assembled on Utoya Island.

Two days before the massacre there, and as Gilad Atzmon has researched and noted, the AUF’s leader, Eskil Pedersen, gave an interview to Dagbladet, Norway’s second largest tabloid newspaper.

In it he said: “The AUF has long been a supporter of an international boycott of Israel but the decision of the last Congress demands that Norway impose a unilateral economic embargo on the country… I acknowledge this is a drastic measure but I think it gives a clear indication that, quite simply, we are tired of Israel’s behaviour.” (My own view is that behind closed doors all Western governments, including the one in Washington D.C. in the person of President Obama, are tired of Israel’s behaviour).

There are two things we know for sure.

One is that Breivik is fanatically anti Islam and pro Zionism.

The other is that Zionism’s propaganda machine has been set to work at full speed, day and night, eight days and nights a week, to demonize, discredit and destroy all who are calling and campaigning for Israel to be boycotted.

From the obscenity of the Nazi holocaust to the present, Zionism’s success in selling its propaganda lies as truth is the reason why the search for peace based on an acceptable amount of justice for the Palestinians has been, and remains, a mission impossible.

I describe the Israel-Palestine conflict as the cancer at the heart of international affairs which threatens to consume us all. It’s bad enough that Zionist propaganda has prevented a cure for it, but if now that same propaganda is inspiring Europeans in Europe to slaughter their own, the future is very, very frightening.

I don’t know the answer to my headline question but I think investigators in Norway, prosecutors and psychiatrists, must dig deep enough to find it.

FATHER OF NORWAY GUNMAN HELD UP IN FRANCE, PROTECTED BY ARMED LEGION

Following the Norway Massacre this past weekend, the background story on gunman Anders Breivik is slowly being pieced together.

It has been reported that his father, Jens Breivik is currently being protected by police and gendarmerie, including French Foreign Legion guards around his luxurious villa in the village of Cournanel, in the Aude region near the Pyrenees in south-west France.

Speculation has been rife regarding the family of Anders Breivik. According to recent French reports, the father turned up in France, officially in 1995. Neighbors in his village of 600 inhabitants “never saw him and didn’t know he existed”. Some reports say he is married and lives with a wife or female companion, others say he lives alone.

To date, were details were given on what the father did, or does as a profession or occupation. He was simply described as “retired”.

In a broadcast discussion Sunday by the Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang, Jens Breivik was said to be “in a state of the shock”. 

According to the interview, the retired Norwegian ex-pat had not seen his son since years and only discovered his involvement in Friday’s massacre while reading newspapers on internet.

According to the discussion, he had no relations with his son since 1995, and said that his son went to the USA when the family broke up in Norway during the 1980’s. Following last week’s tragic event the father vowed never to return to Norway.

It is reported that Jens Breivik was an economist for the Norwegian embassy in London. He had already been married and had three children when he met Anders’s natural mother, Ms Wenche Behring, a nurse living in the city with her own daughter from a previous relationship. Within a year of Anders’s birth, in February 1979, the couple had split. Jens Breivik remained in London and Anders’s mother then moved back to Oslo with Anders and his elder half-sister.

Anders’s natural mother later married a Norwegian army major and settled in Oslo. Jens went on to married a fellow embassy worker, Tove Overmo, later moving to Paris.

More details about his family background can be found in the recent Guardian report here.

According to the father, Anders was “a very ordinary boy”, and that when he lived with his son “he was always secretive”.

Breivik also stated that his wish was that his son “should have committed suicide”.

Local government official in Carcassonne, Antoine Leroy, indicated to AFP reporters that the policemen have been located there since Sunday, as a preventive measure. 

“There should be no indication to think that there is the least threat against the father, this is preventative measure only.  There were rumors of a search of his villa, but this is not true”, declared the french prosecutor. 

If military officers belonging to the Foreign Legion were seen Sunday in front of the villa, but this was because the one of them was working as translator, indicated prosecutor Leroy yesterday. 

French police foresee a long-term presence to oversee the approaches to the house of the father, set away in this quiet town of 600 inhabitants.
