Killing of Journalist Maya Naser in Damascus Possibly Tied to the Investigation into Turkey War Crimes

"During the last days leading up to the assassination of Maya Naser on the wounding of the Al-Alan and PRESS TV station chief in Damascus, Hussein Mortada, Maya was investigating a case which had the potential to lead to the impeachment of the Erdogan-led government of Turkey and indictments for serious war crimes and human rights violations.

Earlier this month the Workers' Party Turkey filed criminal charges for the Turkish government's support of the Free Syrian Army and related terrorist groups. Only days before his assassination, Maya Naser entered into an ad hoc investigative alliance into the alleged war crimes and human rights violations of the Turkish govenrment with leading members of the Workers' Party Turkey..."

Iranian news agency duped by Onion story on Obama poll

Quote:

Iran's leading news agency published a mock poll that claimed rural whites in the U.S. favored Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over president Barack Obama.

The mock poll was originally published on a popular U.S.  media site, The Onion.

The FARS news agencywhich touts itself as Iran's leading independent news agency while others note its ties to governmentpublished much of the made-up poll that first appeared in the U.S. parody website.

The Onion site quoted a fictitious Gallup Poll that noted "77 percent of rural Caucasian voters...would much  rather go  to a baseball game or have a beer with Ahmadinejad...than spend time with Obama."

FARS  led its story with that statement and even quoted someone from the Onion piece, West Virginia resident Swiderski, saying of Ahmadinejad, "I like him better."

You have to admit that's pretty funny... have a great weekend.

Like all good satire the really funny stuff is close to the truth.  The Ahmadinejad part is ridiculous but tickets to a MLB game or hang with Obama would hardly be a difficult choice for any tea party supporter.

But [url=http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/chief+pranked+Montreal+Justiciers+ma... got Ban Ki-moon[/url]:

Quote:

This week, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon joined the ranks of those pranked by a Quebec radio station, his office confirmed Thursday.

Montreal comedy duo Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel called Ban on Wednesday afternoon and pretended to be Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

[...]

Known as Les Justiciers Masqués (the Masked Avengers), the two are notorious for prank calls to celebrities and heads of state. The duo said in a news release that the world's top diplomat was rushed out of an important meeting to speak to them. Quebec City radio station CKOI played excerpts of the prank Thursday, and was planning on broadcasting the entire call Friday.

During the call, Ban appears to become suspicious when fake Harper complains he was too busy combing his hair with Krazy Glue to attend this week's ministerial meeting of the U.N. General Assembly — a clear dig at the Canadian prime minister's immaculate hairdo.

"Excuse me, am I speaking with Prime Minister Harper right now?" Ban is quoted as saying

Fake Harper begins the call in French by explaining why he sent his "lap dog," Foreign Minister John Baird to New York in his place.

NDPP

Looks like any friend of Bibi's get's put through to a busy Ban right away... A Ban calling Stephen version could have been interesting as well.  Love to see more of this kind of thing with serious people going for some real political paydirt instead of a 'prank'. Just imagine the possibilities in this case. The mind boggles...

I love it. Crazy glue triggered him but not calling Baird a lapdog.I guess in those circles pissing on the help is de rigueur.

'An occupier and aggressive regime like the Zionist regime which possesses nuclear weapons and threatens to launch military attacks is more dangerous [than] Iran which has no nuclear weapons and stresses the necessity of nuclear disarmament.

If America and the other Western authorities truly seek to avert threats against the region and the world, they must mount pressure on the dangerous regime of Israel through cutting ties with the regime and imposing sanctions on it until all its weapons of mass destruction are destroyed,' Vahidi added..."

It is, whenever mouthpieces for the state swallow and regurgitate information whole.  North American media outlets have quite a past and present of being fooled by turning state press releases into headline news, especially in the area of foreign policy.  As I understand it now with the embassy debacle having occurred in Benghazi, they're practiced enough at contortionism these days, they've hardly skipped a beat in re-defining the liberation movement from just yesterday it seems, into today's murdering Jihadists.  Well, it's either they've been fooled, or they're a conscious part of the overall industry seeking to turn everyone else into fools.  The point is, there's more than enough fools to go around.  That's what the various states and information bureaus are counting on.  It's curious that when people bring forward the mainstream's flavour of the day, in this case the Fars Agency story, it's almost as if they've stumbled upon some previously buried nugget of truth that needs to be rushed back and presented to the Fars News Agency support group, either as a light-hearted gotcha moment, or out of an earnest desire to say 'look, these people are liars and fools, why take them seriously?'  Which leads directly to the next intrusive thought, that both of us are wasting our time...with mine being in the response.

Iceland Warns Israel Against Military Attack on Iran

"Iceland's Foreign Minister Ossir Skarphyinsson has warned Israel against carrying out a military attack on Iran's nuclear facilities. 'Don't bomb Iran. Don't start another war in the Middle East,' Skarphyinsson said in an address to the 67th session of the UN General Assembly on Saturday.

Unlike Iran, Israel is a non-signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and continues to defy international calls to join the treaty."

Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran  -  by Vijay Prashad

http://www.counterpunch.org/2012/09/28/bomb-bomb-bomb-iran/

"...If Israel was serious about the principle of a nuclear free Middle East, it would immediately sign onto the most important proposal made in this UN General Assembly session thus far: when Egypt's president Mohammed Morsi called for the creation of a Nuclear Weapons Free Zone in the region by the end of 2012.

The problem is that Morsi's proposal will be blocked by two powers: the US and Israel. A Nuclear Weapons Free Zone would mean that the US would not be able to bring its nuclear weapons to its bases in the Middle East and nor can it use depleted uranium in the weapons that its ships carry into the Gulf.

'The only solution is to get rid of nuclear weapons,' Morsi said, 'and all weapons of mass destruction.' Morsi's sensible suggestion is buried beneath the shoddy coverage in the US media that concentrates on Ahmadinejad's antics and on Bibi's baseless threats..."

 

An Interview With Norman Finkelstein

http://www.counterpunch.org/2012/09/28/an-interview-with-norman-finkelst...

Q: What does Israel have to gain from an attack on Iran?

NF;

"There are so many dimensions to that. Israel obviously wants to be the big bully on the block and so wants to knock out anyone who is challenging its regional hegemony. Just like the US wants to be the big bully in the middle east and so there is a confluence of interest between the US and Israel in keeping Iran in place.

At this point there is a disagreement about whether to use force. Well you never know with the Israelis. If there was an Oscar for best theatrical performance by a country, Israel would win every year. It's a country based on theater. It's a lunatic state - completely insane. There is no other country in the world where all they talk about is war. That's all they talk about. It's just who should we attack today. Should we incinerate Lebanon? Should we attack Syria? Should we attack Iran? Mentally, it's a completely off the map country..."

First Nations Leader Forges Ahead With Trip to Iran  -  by Laura Stone

"Despite economic sanctions, a plummeting currency and suspended diplomatic ties with Canada, consultant and former First Nations Chief Terrance Nelson vows to continue his trip to Iran next week to 'touch base' with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's regime about resource and land development for aboriginals. He intends to arrive in Iran on October 11 and stay for about a week, claiming to have set up five days of official meetings.

'The point of going to Iran is basically touching base with them and making sure they understand that we the indigenous people are in the same boat, we are under economic sanctions. Have been for over a 100 years,' said Nelson.

When asked about Nelson's trip, a spokesman for foreign affairs minister John Baird repeated the official line, saying the Iranian regime ' is now attempting to exploit Canadian aboriginal leaders and feign concern in yet another PR stunt to distract from its own abhorrent record..."

Foreign Policy: The Entebbe Option - How the U.S. military thinks Israel might strike Iran

One thing is clear: the U.S. military, according to my sources, currently has no interest in a preventive strike. "The idea that we'll attack with Israel is remote, so you can take that off your list of options," former Centcom commander Joe Hoar told me. Nor will the United States join an Israeli attack once it starts, the senior U.S. planner said. "We know there are senior Iranians egging for a fight with us, particularly in their Navy," a retired Centcom officer added. "And we'll give them one if they want one, but we're not going to go piling in simply because the Israelis want us to."

That puts the military shoulder to shoulder with the president. Obama and the military may have clashed on other issues, like the Afghan surge, but when it comes to Iran, they are speaking with one voice: They don't want Iran to get a nuclear weapon, they don't want Israel to start a war over it, and they don't believe an Israeli attack should automatically trigger U.S. intervention. But, if they are to avoid becoming part of Israel's plans, they first need to know what those plans are.

"...Remember that Canada sends 2.5 million barrels of oil a day to the United States and has done so for years.

Canada has not paid the indigenous people for the oil.

Iran claims 'dozens' of its drones reached Israel

Quote:

A senior Iranian military official claimed Tuesday that Iranian-made surveillance drones have made dozens of apparently undetected flights into Israeli airspace from Lebanon in recent years to probe air defenses and collect reconnaissance data. An Israeli official rejected the account.

The Iranian official declined to give further details on the purported missions or the capabilities of the drones, including whether they were similar to the unmanned aircraft launched last week by Lebanon's Hezbollah and downed by Israeli warplanes. It also was impossible to independently verify the claims from the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media.
