Germany and the UNO against Syria

The neo-conservatives and liberal hawks who have been preparing the war against Syria since 2001 have been relying on several states from the UNO and the Gulf Co-operation Council. While we know about the role played by General David Petraeus in launching and pursuing the war until today, two personalities – Jeffrey Feltman (number 2 at the UNO) and Volker Perthes (Director of the main German think tank) – ...Read full article...

Saudi Airstrikes on Yemen Deliberately Target Civilians

On January 27, London’s Guardian cited a UN panel investigating its terror-bombing found “widespread and systematic” attacks on civilians and civilian-related targets – horrendous war crimes by any standard. The Guardian said evidence uncovered raises disturbing questions about Britain supplying Riyadh with heavy weapons. US and UK military personnel select targets to be struck – including hospitals, schools, refugee camps, food storage areas, mosques, markets where Yemenis shop, and ...Read full article...

Towards the collapse of Saudi Arabia

While the Saud family enjoys the last few moments of its dictatorship, the decapitation of the leader of the opposition, Nimr al-Nimr, deprives half of the Saudi population of all hope. For Thierry Meyssan, the fall of the kingdom has become inevitable. It will probably be accompanied by a long period of extreme violence. In one year, the new king of Saudi Arabia, Salman, 25th son of the founder ...Read full article...

Gulf States Support Saudi Regional Terrorism

Is Riyadh trying to resurrect oil prices by provoking wars? On Saturday, Gulf Cooperation Council states met in extraordinary Riyadh session, discussing Saudi/Iranian relations. Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and the UAE support the kingdom’s anti-Iranian agenda. Oman alone urges resolving differences diplomatically, maintaining its longstanding tradition of cooperation with Tehran, saying it poses no threat to other regional states. Following the session, Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir said “(w)e are looking ...Read full article...

Israel and Saudi Arabia create coalition in case ISIS fails

The secret projects of Israel and Saudi Arabia The response by Tel-Aviv and Riyadh to the US-Iran negotiations can be found in the extension of Saudi financing of the war against Gaza in 2008 – the alliance between a colonial state and an obscurantist monarchy. While the Near East is preparing for a ten-year change in the rules of the game, Thierry Meyssan reveals here the contents of the secret negotiations between Tel-Aviv and Riyadh. ...Read full article...

Saudi Indifference to Human Lives and Welfare

Saudi Arabia is perhaps the world’s most ruthless regime, second only to America and Israel’s partnership, together a true axis of pure evil. Riyadh persecutes its own population ruthlessly, tolerating no dissent, sentencing victims to death for the crime of truth-telling, partnering with US regional wars, supplying weapons, funding and banned chemical agents to terrorists in Iraq and Syria. For six months, it’s been terror bombing Yemen, using banned ...Read full article...

The Greek lesson to the Arabs and Europeans

Greece is again a laboratory. It was so this year after its government failed the Greek people and negotiated a third bailout to rescue European banks. Now, Greece is again the victim of European and, in general, Western abhorrent foreign policies. The country is the largest recipient of immigrants that arrive daily to its islands. The out-of-control inflow of African and Middle Eastern refugees provides two very different and ...Read full article...

Arabs turn their backs on War Refugees

Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel are not only arming and training terrorists to destroy the Middle East, but also banning Syrian, Palestinian and Libyan refugees from crossing their borders.

WikiLeaks Releases Secret Saudi Documents

The more we learn about the secret workings of despotic regimes and faux democracies like America, Britain and Israel among others, the better we understand how they extrajudicially serve powerful monied interests at the expense of popular ones. On Friday, WikiLeaks began releasing around half a million Saudi documents – including Foreign Ministry communiques and top secret intelligence and interior ministry reports. An initial 70,000 documents were released with ...Read full article...

Russia Calls for International Resolution of Yemen War

Millions of Yemenis desperately need aid not forthcoming or arriving in woefully inadequate amounts. Obama’s war on Yemen using Saudi and other regional rogue states as convenient proxies continues after nearly eight weeks. Riaydh’s 3-day May 17 – 19 sham peace conference was thinly veiled PR subterfuge. Terror-bombing and offshore shelling slowed. It didn’t stop. On Wednesday, it resumed full-force. Civilian neighbors and infrastructure as well as other nonmilitary ...Read full article...

Saudi Terror-Bombing Massacres Dozens of Yemeni Schoolchildren

Saudi warplanes target US intelligence-designated sites. Civilian men, women and children are considered fair game. They suffer most in all wars. Deliberately targeting them is longstanding US policy – a shocking war crime by any standard. Tuesday was the latest example. Reports indicate Saudi warplanes struck a populated Ma’rib area. A local source said dozens of defenseless schoolchildren were massacred in cold blood. The exact number of dead and ...Read full article...

FBI accused of whitewashing Saudi involvement in 9/11 attacks. “Red-Herring”, Propaganda Ploy

The alleged Saudi involvement in supporting Osama bin Laden, not to mention the classified 28 pages of the 9/11 joint Congressional inquiry pertaining to the insidious role of Saudi Arabia in supporting the hijackers is  part of a propaganda ploy.  When the report of Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 was released in December 2002, it was met with considerable skepticism. That skepticism grew for a period of time but then was reduced to ...Read full article...

The Islamic State “Big Lie”

Under the auspices of the United Nations Security Council,  with president Obama chairing the Council session, the United States has called upon the international community to adopt strong measures, at national and international levels, to curtail the recruitment of Islamic State fighters.
