Syria Has Used Chemical Weapons, Israel Says


November 2, 2010

‘IDF intelligence chief: Israel’s next war will see heavy casualties’

In farewell meeting at the Knesset, Gen. Amos Yadlin says next conflict will hit Israel far harder than recent wars in Lebanon and Gaza – and hints for first the time at Israeli involvement in a 2007 strike on a nuclear plant in Syria.

In a final meeting at the Knesset, outgoing Military Intelligence chief Amos Yadlin warned on Tuesday that Israel’s next war would be fought on several fronts – causing far heavier damage and casualties than other recent conflicts. A new war would be far deadlier than Israel’s last two, relatively short, conflicts in Lebanon in 2006 and Gaza in 2008-9. Syria, particularly, posed a greated military obstacle to Israel than at any time in the past three decades, Yadlin said, having amassed advanced Russian-built antiaircraft missiles that seriously limited the operational freedom of the Israel Air Force. Yadlin also hinted at Israel’s involvement in attacking a Syrian nuclear facility in September 2007. That strike has been widely attributed to Israel, but the government has never officially taken responsibility for the operation. The veteran soldier, who turns 60 next year, told the committee that during his position as MI chief he had contended with two enemy nuclear programs – apparently a reference to Iran and Syria. Yadlin also warned of a growing threat from the Iranian nuclear program, saying Iran now had enough highly enriched uranium to build a bomb.

President al-Assad: Israeli Aggression Reveals Israel’s Role in Destabilizing Syria

February 3, 2013

President Bashar al-Assad said that the Israeli aggression on a scientific research center in Jamraya in Damascus countryside reveals Israel’s role, in collaboration with the hostile foreign powers and their tools in Syria, to destabilize and weaken Syria so as to force it to give up its national and Pan-Arab stances and principles .

Receiving Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, Saeed Jalili on Sunday, President al-Assad stressed that Syria is capable of confronting current challenges and repelling any aggression targeting the Syrian people and their historic and cultural role, thanks to the awareness of the Syrians, the might of the Syrian army and Syria’s adherence to the path of resistance.

Jalili expressed trust in the wisdom of the Syrian leadership in dealing with the aggression that targets Syria’s pioneering role, stressing Iran’s full support to the Syrian people in confronting the Zionist entity and its keenness on continuing coordination with Syria for confronting external conspiracies and schemes that aim to destabilize the region.

Jalili conveyed Iran’s appreciation for the political solution plan for solving the crisis announced by President al-Assad and the Syrian government’s steps to implement it, reiterating Tehran’s readiness to offer all help needed for making the national dialogue a success as it is the only way out of the crisis.

The two sides also discussed the outstanding cooperation relations between Syria and Iran and the two leaderships’ mutual keenness on further enhancing them in all fields.

The meeting discussed the situation in the region in general and Syria in particular, especially in the aftermath of the blatant Israeli aggression on Jamraya scientific center in Damascus Countryside.

In a relevant context, Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Walid al-Moallem held a meeting with Jalili, in which al-Moallem stressed that the Israeli aggression on Syria proves its direct complicity with the armed terrorist groups to destroy the infrastructure and sabotage development centers in Syria.

He added that the consistency of roles between Israel and these terrorist groups stresses Israel’s hostility and violation of the rules of the international law.

In turn, Jalili condemned the Israeli raid on Syria, considering it as a proof on Israel’s aggressive nature and its being a threat to the security and stability in the region.

Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad, Assistant Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Ahmad Arnous, Director of Asia Department at the Ministry , the Iranian Ambassador in Damascus and the delegation accompanying Jalili attended the meeting.

Latest News: War on Syria and internet censorship


On the skynetblogs of the Belgian association Werkgroep Morkhoven, there were hundreds of webpages  about the war on Syria, NATO, the violation of human rights and tortures in Belgian prisons and psychiatric institutions, the political corruption in Belgium and the European Community, the cover up of the Zandvoort childporn case (with 90.000 victims) and about many other topics.

Sometimes these skynetblogs were at the top of Google search results as was the case for the search keywords ‘Latest News Syria’ on Google (300.000.000 results).

Seven days ago,  after publication on the blog ‘Brussel, Brussels, Bruxelles’ of some critical articles on NATO which is headquartered in Brussels,  the skynetblogs were suddenly inaccessible.

A short message that was previously formatted, mentioned that the administrator of the blog had ‘presumably closed his account and removed the 20 skynetblogs’.

When Skynet learned that this story was incorrect and completely ridiculous, it  changed its short message: ‘ Your blogs are encrypted’.

It proved that the blogs were still existing as was the case before with the skynetblog ‘Doofpot Justitie‘ (Cover up operation of Justice). This blog was also encrypted some times ago after a strange campaign of a female lawyer which, as her famous father, is active in Belgian politics.

The woman, a member of the Socialist Party which is responsible for the cover up of the Zandvoort childporn case, demanded that the skynet blogs of  the Werkgroep Morkhoven would be removed from the list of search results of a small internet search engine.

Some years before, another member of the socialist party which has good contacts with a senator who was State Secretary and minister of  Security,  demanded the same. The man who has been reported 30 times in police reports because of sexual offenses against little boys, is responsible for the long media campaign against Morkhoven-member Marcel Vervloesem who revealed the Zandvoort childporn case.   He is also responsible for the fact that the extraordinary media attention for this case,  including three Japanese newspapers, disappeared and the Zandvoort case has been covered.

It is clear that the encryption of the skynetblogs is a cover-up operation because of the Werkgroep Morkhoven is not a right-wing or anti-socialist association.

Undoubtedly the critical articles of Werkgroep Morkhoven about the involvement of  the Belgian government, the European Union and NATO in the war propaganda and political manipulations in the war on Syria, are also responsible for the the encryption and the removal from the list with search results of Google. The removal of Google is not coming as a surprise. It is a common secret that the U.S.-Defense Department’s best-known geek announced past year that she was leaving the Pentagon for a job at Google.

Skynet is a part of the Belgacom Group, the largest Belgian telecommunication company which is  for 53% Belgian State owned. The Belgacom Group  is working closely with the Israeli telecommunication industry and has very good contacts with the Israeli government.

Only 1 (dead) webpage of the skynetblogs hasn’t been removed of  Google. Coincidentally this link refers to the website of the  Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) which was constantly inaccessible and which link is hardly findable on Google under de keywords ‘latest news Syria’.

Latest News War on Syria: Princess de Croÿ blog censored


December 27th, 2012

Some days ago, Google said that the webpages the skynetblogs of the Belgian action group Werkgroep Morkhoven, were no longer to consult because of the webpages didn’t exist anymore.

This information was incorrect.

Some days later, Skynet showed the next short message: ‘the administrators were presumably closing their account and deleting all their blogs’.

But neither the princess nor myself have done that.

On December 25, 2012, Princess de Croÿ wrote to the customer service of Skynet:


I am director of Skynet blogs Werkgroep Morkhoven and Princess of Croy Foundation. It appears that these blogs (Issakaba, Middle East News, Divers, Werkgroep Morkhoven, Blogoloog, Fondation Princesse de Croy) are disabled, which obviously has not been done by me or by Jan Boeykens who created them. Your services are therefore a serious safety issue. Providers retain all the contents of sites to protect customers from such problems. I would be so grateful if these sites come back online.


Jacqueline de Croÿ

The next day, Skynet showed the next short message: ‘Your blogs were put in quarantine. They are encrypted’.

That proved that they were still existing.

In the past, some criminals which, together with the Belgian authorities, tried to cover up the Zandvoort child pornography case (with almost 90.000 victims), filed a complaint with the Skynet’s customer service.  The service decided to encrypt two blogs of Werkgroep Morkhoven, including ‘Doofpot Justitie’ (Cover-up operation Justice). We could still see the webpages of the blogs but could no longer publish on it.  After some days, the web pages of these blogs were no longer to find on Google.

We wrote now four times to the customer service of Skynet but the service didn’t reply. We only received a confirmation of our complaints.

Over a couple of days, all the webpages of our blogs will be disappeared from the lists of the internet search engines.

Because of here’s a criminal intent and the freedom of expression is severely violated, we are going to contact our lawyer now.

It may be that Belgian justice which covered up the Zandvoort child porncase by false accusations and hiding documents, will ignore our complaint.  But we prefer a growing international attention for this case, instead of remaining silent.

December 30th 2012: the customer service of Skynet didn’t reply and it keeps the blogs encrypted. A few thousand webpages published during the past 8 years, has been disappeared of Google which certainly was the intention.  It is really shocking that this kind of censorship is possible. It proves that the Internet is completely controlled by the government which doesn’t accept criticism or opposition groups.  Let this be a warning to other independent associations and activists.

Facebook is a friend of NATO

‘I always fancied about working in a huge office where I will have my own cabin and office desk with my initials put on it along with my qualification, and I guess anyone would want to work in a modern office glamorously furnished with beautiful range of modern desksand chairs, corners, beautiful lamps gracefully hung around the room to light it up with not much not less but the perfect amount of light.’

iMesh is a media and file sharing client that’s available in 9 languages. It uses a proprietary, centralized, P2P network (IM2Net) operating on ports 80, 443and 1863.  iMesh is owned by American company iMesh, Inc. and maintains a development center in Israel. It is the 3rd most popular music subscription service in the US.
iMesh operates the first “RIAA-approved” P2P service, allowing users residing in United States and Canada to download music content of choice for a monthly fee in the form of either a Premium subscription or a “ToGo” subscription. This subscription based approach is advocated by theories such as the Open Music Model. A third option is also available for users (residing in either country) to permanently purchase tracks for 0.99 USD each, without a subscription.
In addition to the paid content, iMesh allows all users (regardless of origin country) access to “non-copyrighted” music and video files. A legalized ringtone download service provided by Thumbplay is also available, allowing users to purchase ringtones for their cellphones.
On September 18, 2003 the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) sued iMesh for encouraging copyright infringement

Music labels file suit against iMesh file-sharing network
Eighteen music labels sued the Israeli file-sharing network iMesh.com Inc. for copyright infringement at the U.S. District Court in Manhattan on Friday, as part of their broader campaign against file-sharing companies.
Eighteen music labels sued the Israeli file-sharing network iMesh.com Inc. for copyright infringement at the U.S. District Court in Manhattan on Friday, as part of their broader campaign against file-sharing companies.
In in interview with Haaretz, iMesh.com Inc. CEO Elan Oren confirmed the lawsuit was filed against the company.
“I arrived in Washington DC to lecture Senate members on payment-collection models for the file-sharing community, and several hours later I received the charge sheet,” Oren said.
“We are the last company the record companies are suing and I was sure they had skipped over us,” Oren said.
The company – Internet Meshing – was established in 1999 by David Habusha and Uri Nadav, both graduates of Mamram, the Israel Defense Forces’ central computing facility. The two left the company in 2000 when they ran into difficulties raising funds, and Oren took over and introduced a new advertising-based economic model.
The company is registered in the state of Delaware, for tax purposes, and employs five people, all in Israel. When asked whether the company was profitable, Oren said, “We make a living.”
Since its establishment in 1999, some 60 million users have downloaded the company’s software, but only a few million are regular users. Only last week, the software was downloaded at least 500,000 times.
Tel Aviv-based iMesh is the third-largest file-sharing network behind Morpheus and the much larger KaZaa service. These networks allow millions of users around the world to trade software, music and video over the Internet.
The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan, charges the company with serving as a medium for the illegal distribution of copyrighted material.
According to the lawsuit, “Without widespread infringement of the most popular copyrighted sound recordings, [iMesh] would disappear.”
The legal actions come after iMesh said in late August it planned to sell copyrighted music from independent artists, films and games, alongside file-swapping. Oren had told Reuters the company had no intention of abandoning file-sharing .
However, last April, a federal judge in Los Angeles ruled that the suits brought against Grokster, Morpheus and KaZaa, companies offering similar services to iMesh, were untenable. Judge Steven Wilson ruled that the suits were based on the assumption that the companies are aware and in control of every moment in the transfer of files, which he says is not true.
Judge Wilson also ruled that contrary to Napster, where the company operated a main control center, the technology used by the other firms does not make use of a control center.
“At some point I thought they [the labels] had understood that there is no difference between us, Grokster and Morpheus, and since their case was decided, they would see that it was pointless to sue. I was wrong,” Oren said.
File-sharing network iMesh, once a Napster-style service that was sued for allowing illegal song-swapping, said it plans on Tuesday to launch a new pay service.
The launch of iMesh marks the latest step by so-called peer-to-peer services following a Supreme Court decision in June that found online file-sharing services can be held liable for the copyright violations of their users.
Peer-to-peer networks allow users to connect directly instead of having their computers link through a centralized machine.
Once one of the most popular of post-Napster song-swapping networks, iMesh, formed in 1999, was sued by the record labels in 2003 for copyright infringement and settled for $4.1 million.
The privately held company hired former Sony Music President Robert Summer as executive chairman to handle negotiations with the music industry.

NATO’s war on Syria: U.S., Israel, Germany, Turkey


Germany last year ordered a small fleet of Israeli Heron spy drones designed to provide real-time images above a battlefield. That has brought German jet pilots to coastal Ein Shemer air base for accelerated retraining on the unmanned propeller planes, already daubed with their flag and Iron Cross emblem. “It’s for the need of the ground troops, for our own protection, like convoy protection,” said a Luftwaffe (airforce) major, who formerly flew a Tornado fighter-bomber on Afghan reconnaissance missions and could not be named due to military secrecy.
Israel is a pioneer of combat drones, having deployed them in Lebanon in the Palestinian territories. Heron’s manufacturer, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), says it is also used by Canadian, French and Australian forces in Afghanistan. On December 12, 2012, Germany has expelled four employees of the Syrian embassy in Berlin in a diplomatic move to put pressure on the regime of President Bashar Assad. German MPs of the lower house of parliament voted 461-86 on Friday, December 14, 2012, to approve the deployment of two Patriot missile batteries and 400 troops in Turkey along the Syrian border, Reuters reported.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu recently expressed Turkey’s desire for a leading role in a Greater Middle East, while also claiming that Turkey’s borders are NATO’s borders.

NATO’s war on Syria: U.S., Israel, Germany, Turkey


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his friend President Barack Obama.

On November 15, 2010, U.S. President Barack Obama praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for urging his cabinet to accept a U.S. proposal to extend a freeze on West Bank settlement building for 90 days. Under the plan, Washington would block UN resolutions critical of Israel, and supply Israel with fighter jets worth $3 billion. The US government also promised Israel that after the 90-day moratorium, they would not seek an extension, and settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (all of which is illegal under international law) could continue unabated. At the beginning of the month of February 2011, more than 100 nations voted for a U.N. resolution that would have condemned illegal Israeli settlements and halted any new construction. The United States vetoed it.
On February 19, 2011, Israel said it was ‘deeply grateful to the United States’ after it vetoed a United Nations resolution put forward by the Palestinian leadership condemning Israeli settlement activity. On  Oct 27, 2011, Israeli jetfighters engaged in aerial bombing of the Palestinian city of Khan Yunes in the Gaza Strip.Israel plans now to build unspecified thousands of new settler units in the strip of land known as E1 around Al Quds…

Israel’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman who, for tactical political reasons, recently announced that he withdrawned temporarily, proposes since 2001, to establish four townships in the occupied West Bank, hermetically sealed, which would be grouped the Palestinians.
More recently he has improved his plan.
He sees it as a solution for the Palestinian citizens of Israel, who are more than one million, to move the vast majority of the group in tightly closed, self-administered areas.
Thus would arise a State ethnically homogeneous from the Mediterranean Sea until the Jordan, sheltering in its midst Palestinian “Bantustans”.
Lieberman, besides his ministerial duties, is the leader of Israel Beteinou (Israel Our Home), a political party openly racist and Arabophobia.
