Israel clandestine operations against Iran Nuclear Programme

1. Israel's intelligence service, the Mossad, has intensified its war against Iran's nuclear programme and, by some accounts, its Kidron hit teams are reportedly targeting Iranian nuclear scientists for assassination as well as sabotaging the Islamic Republic's global network for procuring vital material.

2. In the 1980s and '90s, it was the systematic killing of key figures in Saddam's weapons programmes--at least three high-level scientists--and the bombing of Europian companies supplying components for the Iraqi dictator's secret programme to manufacture nuclear bombs. The cores for two French-built reactors bound for Iraq were blown up in a warehouse outside Toulon, France, on 5 April 1979 in Operation.

3."With cooperation from the United States, Israeli covert operations have focused both on eliminating key assets involved in the nuclear programme and the sabotaging of the Iranian nuclear supply chain," said Reva Bhalla, director of analysis with Strategic Forecasting (Stratfor), a Texas-based private intelligence company with close links to the US security establishment.

4. Israel has reportedly set up dummy companies to infiltrate Iran's extensive procurement network that seeks to circumvent United Nations sanctions.

5. The Israelis and Americans have both carried out industrial sabotage against Iran.

6. Iran has been sold components with flaws that are difficult to spot, while technical documents have been subtly doctored to make them useless. US sources reported one incident in which sabotaged electrical equipment purchased in Europe exploded at the uranium enrichment centre at Natanz in April 2006, destroying 50 centrifuges, machinery essential to the enrichment process.

7. "Industrial sabotage is a way to stop the programme, without military action, with out fingerprints on the operation, and really, it's ideal, if it works," Mark Fitzgerald, former US deputy assistant secretary of state for non-proliferation and now with the International Institute for Strategic Studies 8.Stratfor's Bhalla concurs that Iranian nuclear scientists are key targets of the Israeli operations and have been the target of intimidation campaigns to prevent Iran acquiring nuclear weapons. There was "strong intelligence", she said, that one of Iran's leading nuclear physicists, Ardeshir Hassanpour, was killed by the Mossad in January 2007.*from < covert war: the Mossad is said to wage a clandestine...-a0203482099>.

9. Another modus operandi of the Mossad is
making their spies pose as high-profile bloggers and journalists who then go on intelligence gathering missions and report back to home base using publicly visible television broadcasts. ( ).

10. In Nov.2008,
the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Commander (IRGC), Major General Mohammad-Ali Jafari, said that the IRGC security and intelligence divisions identified a network that was spying on the country's military organizations.

The network was tasked with gathering information for Israel about Iran's nuclear facilities and the IRGC, as well as Iranian military and political figures

Ali Ashtari, who was arrested by security forces, admitted that Mossad had instructed him to sell bugged Internet cables and satellite phones to target Iranian officials in an attempt to monitor their communications.


Your Dollars Monopoly Money & Gold

Here's an interesting article I'd like to share with you, written by Bill Fleckenstein (Oct 2009), some of which I edited for the sake of brevity.
At the end of the day, Gold is still the stable currency and this precious metal as currency of exchange has been consistently mentioned in the Islamic teaching through the centuries.

1. "I was recently thinking about what has transpired in this country in the past decade: first the equity bubble, then the real estate/credit bubble and the steady debasement of the dollar (where a trickle of trouble threatens to turn into a flood).

2. I have been struck by how few people seem to understand how all these events are related -- in that, at the root, they each have the irresponsible printing of money as the cause.

3. Each problem led to the next, and one year ago the financial system was bailed out at the risk of the country ultimately enduring a funding crisis.

4. One fact that strikes me is how few people seem to have been able to protect themselves from the first two (even though they were so obvious) and how so few will be able to save themselves from this third, huge problem.

5. In my own little world, I wrote until I was blue in the face about the risks inherent to each of those bubbles -- and others did, too -- but still only a small subset of folks avoided calamity.

6. Similarly, I have droned on forever about the weakness in the dollar and the necessity for folks to protect themselves via precious metals or some other idea.

7. Let's face it. Dollars -- the things we call money -- are simply pieces of green paper. They are just a state of mind. They have no intrinsic value and are just wampum. Thus, they're not worth anything. Furthermore, all paper currencies historically have lost all of their value.

8. On the other hand, gold -- which has been in an eight-year bull market but still receives far more derision than praise -- has been money for literally thousands of years.

9. In fact, the green paper has lost 97% of its value compared with gold since President Richard Nixon closed "the gold window" in 1971. (He ended the promise that dollars could be exchanged for gold.) Yet people seem to be more terrified of owning gold than dollars.

10. For the past month or so, as gold has traded around $1,000 an ounce, I have seen no euphoria..

11. Federal Reserve money printing in the past year -- to create its own bailout from the problems it created, and to finance other government bailouts -- is the functional equivalent of the government saying that you can take the Monopoly game out of the closet, grab all the colored pieces of paper, put three or four zeros on the end of each bill, and then go out and spend it.

12. However, the way this game has been played, some folks got multiple sets of Monopoly money, some financial institutions got thousands of them and yet a lot of individuals got no Monopoly money. But the outcome is still the same: The value of the money in circulation has to be worth less once this turbocharged Monopoly money is introduced into the system. That means inflation.

13. The likely outcome as we proceed down the road is liable to be more and more fear about what a dollar is actually worth (i.e., nothing).

14. Hedge fund manager John Paulson (speaking at the recent Grant's Interest Rate Observer conference in New York) succinctly summed up his views about how to protect himself:

"What I'm looking at is not where gold is going to be tomorrow, one week from now, one month from now, three months from now. What I'm looking at is where is gold going to be vis-à-vis the dollar one year from now, three years from now, five years from now. And I think, with a high probability at each of those points, gold will be higher than it is relative to the dollar today. That probability increases the further out you go. So when I look at what the risk is, the risk to me is far more staying in dollars than it is in gold at this point."

S.I.S., FNF, public morality and The Syariah Law


The liberalist agenda of Sisters-In-Islam (SIS), has, of late, been noted by many organisations in Malaysia.
Note a forum (in April 2005) - part of Zainah Anwar's paper (entitled "Enforcing Public morality") below- being organised by Friederich Naumann Foundation (FNF). More about FNF in the last section of this blog.

SIS was listed as SIS Forum (Malaysia) Berhad in SSM but not registered in ROS.

This paper was presented by Zainah Anwar, Executive Director of SIS
at the Public Forum organised by Liberal Forum Malaysia and Friederich Naumann Foundation, Kuala Lumpur, 27 April 2005.
(part of paper)
1."Public morality must depend on public consensus. For example, there is public consensus that sex in public constitutes immoral behaviour. Hence such behaviour is criminalised by the state as a display of public indecency.

2. If there is no public consensus, public morality laws become unenforceable. Look at Iran after 25 years of Islamic rule. Look at Afghanistan under Taliban rule. In spite of the moral policing in the streets, in the offices, in the neighbourhoods, on the university campuses, the moral laws imposed by the state have failed to bring about a more pious, moral and obedient ummah. At best, the laws can command outward conformity to moral rules; but in the end they hinder the very moral education they were designed to assist.

3. Women were forced to wear the hijab, without fully understanding or imbibing the reasons for it. The streets of Tehran today are filled with young women displaying far more hair than hijab because 25 years of compulsory hijab law have only brought about defiance, not compliance. The question this raises is: would it have been more effective to educate young people to be able to freely choose to do the morally right thing for the right reason, and not because of the fear of the coercive power of the state.

4. To this day, the record of enforcement raises doubt as to whether such a ( Syariah) law can indeed ensure that Muslims lead a life according to the teachings of their religion.

5."Can we not be a good Muslim without Big Brother watching over our shoulder with every step we take, ready to send us to jail, fine us or whip us should we transgress?"

6.What are the implications to democratic governance, to multi-racial Malaysia, if only a small group of people, the ulama, as traditionally believed, have the right to interpret the Qur'an...."

(from website of SISTERS-IN-ISLAM;

An Interview with the International Herald Tribune, 2006 with Zainah Anwar:
‘‘With the acid touch that has made her an accomplished campaigner, Zainah Anwar calls the officials in the government religious departments ‘those Taliban-minded bureaucrats.’’
( )

The Foundation follows the ideals of the protestant theologian, Friedrich Naumann. At the beginning of the last century, Naumann was a leading German liberal thinker and politician. In this regard, the Foundation is an agent of organized liberalism. It promotes this through civic education, international political dialogues, and political counselling. The Foundation has numerous offices in Europe, Africa, America and Asia.

FNF works with the American Jewish Committee in organizing events and hosting each others' researchers/operatives.

FNF has maintained good relations with ex-DPM Anwar Ibrahim despite the latter having been sacked from the government for sexual misconduct and corruption. The agenda is obvious: promote Liberal Islam through Anwar, and confuse the Muslim masses throughout Asia and Middle East. His roadshow talks through these regions are well known.

These extensive evil webs stretch out to many nations, via "workshops, forum, lectures, seminars" conducted by various foreign agencies interconnected with one another ( NED, FNF, IRI, NDI, CFR, AIPAC, AJC to name a few) and have ONE aim: anti-Islam and anti-Christ, to weaken the fundamentals and faith of the followers of both religions; and ensuring the survival and expansion of Zionist-Israel.

NED Dan Penglibatan Licik nya di negara-negara

1. NED ialah National Endowment For Democracy, iaitu organisasi muka hadapan CIA (Central Intelligence Agency)
(Beberapa informasi berikut diambil dari artikel Saudara Faisal Tehrani )

2. Penubuhan NED sejak 1980 adalah untuk “membantu usaha demokrasi di negara yang dipercayai dapat memberi manfaat kepada Amerika Syarikat,

3. NED menyalurkan dana secara terus atau melalui badan lain terutama Institut Demokratik Nasional (National Democratic Institute, NDI) dan Institut Republikan Antarabangsa (International Republican Institute, IRI), yang aktif di banyak negara termasuk Malaysia.

NED melakukan kerja batu api dengan memprovokasi aktiviti kepembangkangan. Apabila pembangkang menjadi kuat dan provokatif, pihak kerajaan akan mengambil tindakan keras terhadap pembangkang dan ini akan membolehkan kepercayaan sebahagian besar rakyat terhadap kerajaan yang telah dipilih menerusi cara demokrasi tergugat .

Media Barat akan membantu usaha ini (menjatuhkan parti yang memerintah) dengan meuar-uarkan analisis, pungutan suara rawak, dan pelbagai berita bahawa parti-parti pembangkang akan menumpaskan parti kerajaan dan apabila pembangkang gagal dalam pilihan raya tersebut, parti-parti yang didanai NED telah turun ke jalan raya untuk melakukan protes.

6. Kaedah lain menggugat keamanan negara ialah menyatukan beberapa parti pembangkang berlainan ideologi di bawah satu payung. Gabungan pembangkang ini akan didanai menerusi seorang tokoh yang dikenal pasti dengan harapan dapat menjatuhkan kerajaan yang sedia ada.

7. “Media training workshop” (untuk pemimpin/ tokoh/ parti pembangkang/ NGO/ media, kononnya untuk melatih peserta mewakili masyarakat dalam bidang komunikasi awam.

8.. NED memberi dana yang amat besar kepada persatuan dan badan-badan se sebuah negara, melalui organisasi-organisasi atau sesi latihan di bawah naungannya, untuk mencapai matlamat globalnya. Contohnya,
i. Yayasan Abdorrahman Boroumand, ABF, (Iran)
Majlis Iran Amerika Nasional (NIAC),(Iran)
iii. BERSIH (Malaysia) ;,1#Funding.)
iv. Bengkel dan workshop parti-parti politik Malaysia, di kendalikan oleh NDI.
iv. Merdeka Centre (Malaysia); Dana IRI. (

Obama and the Nobel Peace Prize propaganda

1. The threat to humanity and world peace is THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ISRAEL and NATO.

2. Not Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, China nor Russia.

3. The following information is taken from Prof. Chossudovsky's article in an online journal,

i. "We are (at) the crossroads of the most serious crisis in modern history. The US in partnership with NATO and Israel has launched a global military adventure which, in a very real sense, threatens the future of humanity.

ii. Granting the Nobel Peace Prize to Barack Obama provides legitimacy to the illegal practices of war, to the military occupation of foreign lands, to the relentless killings of civilians in the name of "democracy".

iiii. Both the Obama administration and NATO are directly threatening Russia, China and Iran. The US under Obama is developing "a First Strike Global Missile Shield System".

iv. The granting of the Nobel "peace prize" to president Barack Obama has become an integral part of the Pentagon's propaganda machine.

v. It provides a human face to the invaders, it upholds the demonization of those who oppose US military intervention.

vi. The decision to grant Obama the Nobel Peace Prize was no doubt carefully negotiated with the Norwegian Committee at the highest levels of the US government. It has far reaching implications.

vii. It unequivocally upholds the US led war as a "Just Cause". It erases the war crimes committed both by the Bush and Obama administrations.

War Propaganda: Jus ad Bellum

viii. The "Just war" theory serves to camouflage the nature of US foreign policy, while providing a human face to the invaders.

ix. In both its classical and contemporary versions, the Just war theory upholds war as a "humanitarian operation". It calls for military intervention on ethical and moral grounds against "insurgents", "terrorists", "failed" or "rogue states".

x. The Just War has been heralded by the Nobel Committee as an instrument of Peace. Obama personifies the "Just War".

xi. Taught in US military academies, a modern-day version of the "Just War" theory has been embodied into US military doctrine. The "war on terrorism" and the notion of "preemption" are predicated on the right to "self defense." They define "when it is permissible to wage war": jus ad bellum. "
