Analysis: London Attacks, The Epicenter of Terrorism Detected
By Sajjad Shaukat
At least five people were killed and approximately 40 were injured, including policemen in simultaneous terror attacks in London on Wednesday (March 22, 2017).
According to the BBC, “The attacker, whose identity police believe they know, stabbed the unarmed officer before being shot dead. After the car crashed into the railings of the Houses of Parliament, a man armed with a knife continued the attack and tried to enter the building. Eyewitnesses said police fired three or four gunshots as the knifeman lunged towards a second officer. Forty other people were injured after a car struck pedestrians on nearby Westminster Bridge, before it crashed. Acting Deputy Commissioner and head of counter terrorism at the Metropolitan Police, Mark Rowley, said the attacker was inspired by international terrorism. Earlier, Mr, Rowley said a major investigation was under way into the marauding terrorist attack…Parliament went into lockdown…Westminster underground station was shut.”
British Prime Minister Theresa May stated that the UK terror threat level would remain at severe-its second highest-meaning an attack is highly likely…the location of this attack was no accident. The terrorist chose to strike at the heart of our capital city where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech.”
Still, conflicting reports are coming out about the London attacks in relation to number of casualties and other related developments. Mark Rowley, Britain’s most senior counter-terrorism officer told reporters. “We’ve declared this as a terrorist incident and the counter-terrorism command are carrying out a full-scale investigation into the events today…he would not comment on the identity of the attacker, but said police were working on the assumption that the attack was “Islamist-related terrorism”.
CNN reported on March 23, and March 24, 2017 that Police investigating the deadliest London terror attack in 12 years have arrested eight people in raids around Britain, as an ISIS-affiliated news agency claimed that the extremist group was behind the outrage. Prime Minister May revealed on Thursday that the perpetrator was British born-Khalid Masood, a 52-years old man—the attacker was once linked to violent extremism. He was thought to have been inspired by Islamist ideology.
So far, much has been written and said by writers and analysts of print and electronic media about the coordinated terror attacks of London. The opinion of Christians, Jews and Muslims is divided, while elaborating the London tragedy in accordance with their own peculiar religious background. Prejudice is ruining so high against one another that by reading the name, some people of the opposite side ignore his views.
In this regard, scholars of international affairs agree that “foreign affairs are too foreign” to the citizens of a country. Renowned scholar Prof. Hoslti opines that “issues and situations” have “influence on public opinion” which in turn “influences the objectives and actions.”
In fact, fault cannot be laid on the general masses, a majority of whom does not have much time to go in-depth. Hence, they are swayed by emotions, stereotypes and prejudices created by the political leaders who keep on manipulating any crisis for their own self-interests with the sole aim of getting their sympathies to increase their vote bank. There are equal strong pressures from religious and nationalist forces in wake of fake global war on terror which is dividing the world on religious lines.
However, we cannot blame Israel and its secret agency Mossad for the London terror attacks without some solid reasons. In this regard, first of all, it is notable that regarding a case in the court, a judge always wants solid evidence to give his verdict. While a lawyer or advocate always defends the case of his client at every cost. Sometimes, reality of the event exists, but there is no solid evidence which could be produced in the court. It gives benefit of doubt to the accused who is set free by the concerned court. Even, in some cases, a judge is so impressed by the arguments of a lawyer that he ignores the circumstantial evidence. Quite contrarily, in international politics, we need in-depth analysis to know the real entity, as in relation to the London carnage.
Hence terror attacks in London cannot be seen in isolation. There is an interrelationship of the terrorism-related attacks in the US, Europe, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen etc., and elsewhere in the world—irresponsible statements and executive orders of the US President Donald Trump, various developments in the world which are part of the double game of the US and Israel who are in connivance with American Islamic State group (Also known as Daesh, ISIS, ISIL) to seek revenge against Russia and the Muslims.
Some developments have frustrated the Israelis and Zionist Jews.
In this context, since September 2015, unexpected developments such as Russian successful airstrikes on the ISIS targets in the northern Syria and Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, its coalition with Iran, Iraq, the Syrian army-the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Lebanon-based Hezbollah in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, retreat of the CIA-supported rebels and mercenaries after their failure to topple the Assad government, proving links of Al-Qaeda’s Al-Nusra Front and ISIS with America and Israel, Putin’s clear-cut statement, indicating the Zionist regime in the US and Israel for their “phony war on ISIS” surprised the Israel-led America and some European countries who wanted to oust the Assad regime. Russian-led Syrian forces retook several cities which were in occupation of ISIS militant and rebel groups in Syria and Iraq, who started fleeing. Meanwhile, the CIA-Plan B for partition of Syria also failed. Russia also exposed smuggling of oil supply by the ISI-controlled areas to Europe and silence of their governments in this connection.
Taking note of failure in its sinister designs, the agents of Mossad who were in collaboration with the CIA sympathizers and ISIL militants arranged terror attacks in Paris, Brussels, Orlando, San Bernardino, Nice, and Munich, and now in London. These were false flag operations and were part of the secret strategy and double dame of America and especially of Israel who are in connivance with each other in order to obtain the covert aims of their countries against Russia and the Muslims. Mossad might be alone involved in these terror assaults and those of London by using the ISIS terrorists who used the home-grown terrorists of these countries.
After the false flag terror assaults and the shooting at San Bernardino, California etc., Israel achieved its aims. Like the drastic aftermath of 9/11 tragedy, rulers and politicians of the US-led western countries, particularly of Europe, including their media have started misguiding their general public by creating chauvinism against the Muslims. They started propagating the so-called threat of Islamophobia. In one way or the other, Muslims are being persecuted in the US and other Western countries, especially in Europe which has been put on high alert, as these subversive acts were being taken as attacks on the whole continent.
Meanwhile, Trump continued move against Muslims. In this connection, toughening immigration checks for the French and Germans in the US, questioning NATO obligations—had stated that under his leadership “America would not necessarily come to the aid of NATO ally under attack, he would first consider how much they have contributed to the alliance”, hinted at an exit from the World Trade Organization, Donald Trump said on July 24, 2016, “We have problems in Germany and we have problems in France…they have totally been compromised by deadly Islamist attacks in Nice and last year in Paris…you know why? It’s their own fault…because they allowed people to come into their countries.”
Nevertheless, owing to the irresponsible approach of Western leaders, far right-wing parties and “Stop Islam” movement in the West, especially in Europe are becoming popular by largely attracting their people. Amid a migrant crisis, sluggish economic growth and growing disillusionment with the European Union, right-wing parties in a growing number of European countries have made electoral gains. The right-wing parties range across a wide policy spectrum, from populist and nationalist to far-right neofascist.
Besides revival of the fake global war on terror, Israeli-led America also got the support of its Western allies (NATO) against Russia in relation to Syrian civil war, and as part of the double game and secret strategy, American jet fighters and those of its Western coalition started targeting the ISIS terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
But, some other developments such as criticism of the controversial Turkish-EU refugee deal by a number of human rights groups, especially Amnesty International, success of first Muslim Pakistan’s origin Sadiq Khan as mayor of London by defeating the Conservative rival Zac Goldsmith-a wealthy Jew who was supported by the former British Prime Minister David Cameron, Britain’s decision to leave the European Union (EU), after the referendum (Brexit) on June 24, 2016, despite President Obama’s instance on London to keep aligned with the EU, prospects of Scotland and some other countries for separation from the EU, and the divide between the elite class which run multinational companies with the direct or indirect control of the Jews and the general masses who are suffering from multiple problems in wake of differences on the refugee crisis, Syrian war, Greece’s weak economy, violent protests against the labour laws in France etc.—the chances of European Union’s disintegration which will give a greater blow to the US-Europe alliance against Russia, a rift between the NATO countries, as noted in the recent past by the “Stop NATO protests” in Europe were quite opposite to the Israeli secret interests.
Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s rebuke of European nations, accusing them of dictatorship and cruelty for keeping their frontiers closed to the refugees, fleeing the Syrian conflict created a rift between the West and Turkey, the close ally of NATO. On February 10, 2016, President Erdogan lashed out at the US over its support for Syria’s main Kurdish group, saying, “The failure to recognize the Democratic Union Party (PYD) as a terrorist group is creating a “sea of blood”. He explained, “The PYD, on which the US relies to battle so-called Islamic State in Syria, is an offshoot of the banned Kurdistan Workers’ Party.”
As regards the failed rebellion-attempt of July 15, 2016, Turkey’s president Erdogan and top officials of his government have held the US and CIA for the failed coup to topple his regime by backing and replacing Erdogan with the CIA’s “designated figurehead”, cleric Fethullah Gülen, currently living in Pennsylvania in the US.
By neglecting American pressure, President Erdogan who has taken steps in the end of June 2017 to improve relations with Russia to strengthen its hand in fighting against militants and joined Russian coalition against ISIS, stated that the attack at the Istanbul airport should serve as a turning point in the global battle against terrorism. Reports suggest that Ankara is also considering a military agreement with Moscow.
These developments have also frustrated Tel Aviv. Besides, a prolonged war of history in Afghanistan by the US-led NATO countries, continued ambush attacks on their military installations and personnel by the freedom fighters (Taliban) have demoralized, particularly American military personnel who think that they have been sent abroad—Afghanistan, Syria and elsewhere in the world to maintain the supremacy of Israel, instead of protecting American national interests or their citizens. The cost of the endless war in Afghanistan is rapidly increasing, adding to the plight of ordinary citizens of the US and its Western allies. In order to divert the attention of Americans and its Western public, Mossad-CIA are acting upon the secret strategy of the US and Israel.
In the meantime, the long-awaited 28 secret pages from the Congressional Joint Inquiry into the 9/11 Commission report were released on July 15, 2016, indicating that the alleged hijackers may have been in contact and supported by individuals connected to the Saudi Arabian government. On May 1, 2016, in connection with the Congressional investigation, CIA Director Brennan said that documents which could link Saudi Arabia to 9/11 terrorists should be kept classified, as like CIA and Mossad, Saudi Arabia has also been funding the ISIL (The Sunni group) against the Syrian government and Yemen. Taking cognizance of success of Russian-led forces in Syria and Iraq, including President Trump’s statement against Saudi Arabia, in the recent past, foreigner minister of Saudi Arabia visited Iraq.
Even, CIA-Mossad scheme to promote sectarian violence in the Islamic World on larger scale, after creating a rift between Saudi Arabia and Iran could not succeed, as after the recent bombings in Saudi Arabia, Saudi people have started thinking about the double game of America and Israel.
It is mentionable that the US-led West, especially Europe has already started a new Cold War with Russia. The US has decided to station permanently additional troops in Eastern Europe as part of NATO move to defend the continent against the presumed threat of Moscow. In response, Moscow also responded that it would send 30,000 Russian troops along its western and southern borders. Especially, Tel Aviv wants to intensify this new Cold War so as to avoid the two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute, as some European countries have been emphasizing on Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to stop the expansion of West Bank settlements and restart a negotiation process for the two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian issue in wake of the EU rule to boycott goods produced in Israeli settlements on the West Bank.
Besides other Western countries, on January 15, 2016, France who is staunch supporter of the two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian issue conducted a summit in Paris which was attended by 70 nations. In a statement, delegates at the summit also restated their commitment to the two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and emphasized on them to restart negotiations. Palestinians welcomed the conference, but Israel called it “rigged”. The conference came at a time of rising tension in the region, and there were fears President-elect Trump’s plans to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem could stoke it further.
In his speech to open the meeting, French President Francois Hollande said the international community had to be reminded of its obligations to build peace…the much-needed reconciliation between Israel and its neighbours can go forward”.
Notably, Obama’s anti-Muslim policies were clearly exposed. Therefore before the end of his tenure, President Obama wanted to rectify his blunders. In this context, on December 23, 2016, the US abstained and allowed a UN Security Council resolution, condemning Israeli settlement construction in the occupied territories of the Palestinians to be adopted, defying extraordinary pressure from the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s government which was in alliance with President-elect Donald Trump.
In a statement, Netanyahu’s office accused the Obama administration of “colluding” with the UN and said it looked forward to working with Trump, as well as Israel-friendly members of Congress, “to negate the harmful effects of this absurd resolution.” Netanyahu called the resolution “shameful” and said Israel would not abide by its terms and continue the construction of the settlements.
In this connection, in a series of tweets, posted on December 28, 2016, Donald Trump harshly criticized the Obama’s policies on the settlement issue and reiterated his support for Israel. He questioned the effectiveness of the UNO, saying, “it’s just a club for people to have a good time.”
Trump who has vowed to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and has nominated an ambassador in David Friedman who is supportive of settlers by pledging that the Palestinians would no longer have a platform at the UN when he becomes president on January 20 this year, said, “We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. They used to have a great friend in the U.S…the beginning of the end was the horrible Iran deal, and now this (U.N.)! Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!”
On the same day, US Secretary of State John Kerry also disclosed reality and issued a desperate final warning to Tel Aviv by pointing out, “The settlement building policies being carried out by Israel’s government on occupied land and applauded by Donald Trump were destroying hopes for peace between Israelis and Palestinians…is jeopardizing Middle East peace. He explained, “The two-state solution is now in serious jeopardy…if the choice is one state, Israel can either be Jewish or democratic, it cannot be both…the most extreme elements” of Israel’s Right-wing were shaping the country’s future and strangling the prospect of a two-state solution.”
In remarks in Hebrew, Netanyahu stated that Kerry’s speech was “a big disappointment,” and “obsessive.”
Meanwhile, on the leftist side of the Jewish community leaders applauded the Kerry’s speech— New Israel Fund echoes fears that Israel will not survive as one state, while right-wing Jewish organizations and leaders condemned the speech and two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.
French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault hailed the courageous speech by John Kerry on December 29, last year, by remarking that it outlined principles for solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Particularly, Israel and Zionist lobbies which were clandestinely assisting America’s anti-Muslim, pro-Israeli Trump, the Republican presidential nominee wanted to see him as the president of the United States. Trump who is well-known for his anti-Muslim rhetoric not only exploited the terror assaults of Paris and Brussels, but also the shooting at the gay night club in Orlando, Florida which killed at least 50 persons.
This false flag operation was exposed when on June 28, 2016, The New York Times wrote, “The mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., on June 12 included a curious phrase: false flag…the victims in the shooting? They were “crisis actors” hired to promote the story as a pretext to impose tighter gun restrictions, the theory goes…the term false flag relates to naval warfare when a ship would fly a flag that would conceal its true identity as a way to lure an enemy closer. Today, it is commonly a shorthand for an act of deception…conspiracy theorists have applied the label to high-profile attacks, including the shootings by a husband and wife last year in San Bernardino, Calif, that killed 14…the phrase has even been used to doubt the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.”
In an interview with Brazilian TV on June 14, 2016, the ex-wife of the Orlando shooter Omar Mateen Sitora Yusufiy disclosed that American FBI pressurized her to keep quiet about his homosexuality. Since the attack, Mateen has been dubbed an Islamic terrorist by the politicians, senior officials and commentators in the US, following reports he had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group, as they wanted to downplay the personal and self-hating nature of the assault which was also admitted by President Obama.
When he took oath as the American president, it was expected that being the president of the superpower, Trump would soften his attitude and would behave with responsibility. But, no such a change has emerged in his political character, as he seems determined to follow the Indo-Israeli extremist agenda against the Muslims and the Islamic World.
In this respect, through the executive order, President Trump on January 27, 2017 blocked visas being issued to anyone from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. Trump also announced strict conditions for the citizens from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon. In his first interview with the ABC News, President Trump elaborated, “We’re going to have extreme vetting in all cases. And I mean extreme. And we’re not letting people in if we think there’s even a little chance of some problem.”
Although a federal judge temporary suspended the executive order on February 4, this year restoring travel for refugees and the people from seven Muslim countries, yet American President Trump who lashed out at the judge James Robart in a Twitter post and wrote “The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!”
However, the executive order which he stated was part of an extreme vetting plan to keep out “radical Islamic terrorists—also established a religious test for refugees from Muslim nations, especially from Syria. Trump also ordered that Christians and others from minority religions be granted priority over Muslims.
President Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim order faced severe criticism inside America and around the world, particularly Europe in wake of protest-rallies.
President Donald Trump’s extremist policies against the Muslims could also be judged his statement when he confused the terror attack in Pakistan’s town of Sehwan with Sweden. In Sehwan, at least 88 people were martyred and 343 were injured on February 16, this year when a suicide bomber attacked the crowed Sufi Shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar.
But, addressing a crowed rally in Melbourne, Florida on Saturday night (February 18, 2017), the puzzled President Trump stated “We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night [February 17 in the US] in Sweden…who would believe this?”
Echoing his anti-Muslim approach—the earlier statements like a ban on Muslims, entering the United States and a visa-ban on the seven Islamic countries, Trump elaborated by arguing that European countries were facing terrorists under the disguise of refugees. He stated, “Sweden…they took in large numbers. They’re having problems like the never thought possible. You look what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris.”
Here, connections of the Israeli secret agency Mossad are also noteworthy. In March 2015, Iraqi Special Forces pointed out that they had arrested several ISIL’s foreign military advisors, including American, Israeli and Arab nationals and four foreign passports in an operation in Mosul. Last year, a senior aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin also stated that Mossad is training ISIL terrorists, operating in Iraq and Syria. Meanwhile, arrest of Israeli Col. Shahak in Iraq, his admission, proving links of Al-Qaeda and ISIS with America and Mossad and medical treatment of the ISIS warriors in the Israeli hospitals might also be cited as instance. Mossad links with the ISIS terrorists can also be judged from the fact that this terrorist outfit conducted several suicide assaults and bomb blasts in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan. But, it did not target Israel.
Notably, on December 28, last year, Ankara and Moscow have reportedly agreed on a draft nationwide ceasefire in Syria, and unspecified “terrorist organizations” would be excluded from the deal. In past agreements, “terrorist organizations” have included ISIS and the Al-Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra.
Earlier, Russia, Iran and Turkey met in Moscow to work toward a political accord to end Syria’s nearly six-year war, leaving the United States on the sidelines.
American President Obama’s contradictory approach which has resulted into failure of America’s external policy in the Middle East has been meeting the same fate in South Asia. Like Syria, Pakistan is also main arena of the new Cold War. Particularly, fast growing economic power of China coupled with her rising strategic relationship with Russia, the Third World and especially Pakistan—after signing of agreement, China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has irked the eyes of Americans, Indians and Israelis. Owing to jealousy, America desires to make India a major power to counterbalance China in Asia.
During his first visit to New Delhi, on November 6, 2010, President Obama announced the measures, America would take regarding removal of Indian space and defense companies from a restricted “entities list”, and supported Indian demand for a permanent seat in the UN Security Council including membership of four key global nuclear nonproliferation regimes.
Earlier, on November 2, 2010, the US agreed to sell India the most expensive—the new F-35 fighter jets including US F-16 and F-18 fighters, C-17 and C-130 aircraft, radar systems, Harpoon weapons etc. Besides, New Delhi is also getting arms and weapons from Israel. America also pressurized International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Nuclear Suppliers Group to grant a waiver to New Delhi for obtaining civil nuclear trade on larger scale.
Washington had signed a pact of nuclear civil technology with New Delhi in 2008. During American President Barack Obama’s visit to India, on January 25, 2016, the US and India announced a breakthrough on the pact which would allow American companies to supply New Delhi with civilian nuclear technology.
Beijing is apprehensive about the emerging threat, as during the last visit of Obama to New Delhi, the intent of President Obama and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was quite clear, while mentioning about free sea lanes and air passages in the South China Sea.
Similarly, by pursuing the double standards of America in its worst form, Trump also intends to favour India, while opposing the nuclear weapons of Pakistan. Because, being the only nuclear country in the Islamic World, Pakistan annoys the US, Israel and some Western countries. However, like Obama, Trump has brushed aside the ground realities that Indian Prime Minister Modi led by the ruling fundamentalist party BJP has been implementing anti-Muslim and anti-Pakistan agenda, while encouraging Hindutva (Hindu nationalism)..
As part of the double game, based in Afghanistan, operatives of American CIA, Indian RAW and Israeli Mossad which have well-established their secret network there, and are well-penetrated in the terrorist outfits like ISIS, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and their affiliated Taliban groups are using their terrorists to destabilize Tibetan regions of China, Iranian Sistan-Baluchistan and Pakistan by arranging the subversive activities. In this context, the CPEC is their special target. Recent acts of terrorism in Pakistan’s Balochistan and Afghanistan are part of the same scheme.
Taking note of the US-India alliance, in the trilateral meeting which held in Moscow on December 27, last year, Russia, China and Pakistan agreed on efforts to remove Afghan individuals from the UN sanctions lists as part of efforts to foster peaceful dialogue between Kabul and the Taliban movement in Afghanistan. The Russian inclusion in the CPEC project was another important agenda of the meeting. Russian close ally, Iran may also join the project.
And in September 2016, a contingent of Russian ground forces arrived in Pakistan and conducted the first ever joint Pak-Russian exercise at a time when tensions between Pakistan and India was running high following an attack on the Uri military camp in Indian-held Kashmir, which was managed by Indian RAW to distort Pakistan’s image and to divert attention from the new Intifada of Kashmiris. Nevertheless, Pak-Russia exercise was being seen as a demonstration of closer defense ties between Islamabad and Moscow after they signed a military cooperation pact in 2014.
Undoubtedly, Donald Trump used each terror assault in fueling anti-Muslim racialism in America and to get the sympathies of a majority of the ordinary Americans who did not have much time to go into depth-analysis and have been instigated by his emotional speeches, statements and false hopes.
Experience of the recent acts of terrorism show that general masses start pointing fingers at the ISIS, without going into depth to know the role of some state actors like America and Israel who are behind this outfit and as to what the covert aims, these countries want to achieve through their double game. General masses also forgot that as part of the double game, if President Bush (The Senior) and George W. Bush franchised Al-Qaeda on global level, President Obama’s dual policy franchised both Al-Qaeda and ISIS to obtain the unfinished agenda of the Zionist Jews and for a greater Israel at the cost of the Muslim countries and the patriot Americans. By following Israeli-led US flawed policies, consciously or unconsciously, European politicians are also providing Mossad with golden chance to exploit the ant-Muslim phenomena of Europe and to use ISI militants and their home-grown terrorists to conduct terror attacks in the continent.
It is worth-mentioning that when Iraq-based ISIS which itself broke away from Al-Qaeda, proclaimed a worldwide caliphate by its leader Abu Baker al-Baghdadi, on 29 June 2014, ISIS’s criminal actions had widely been criticized in the world, with many Islamic communities judging the group to be unrepresentative of Islam. One of ISIS’s goals has been to establish a radical Sunni Islamic state in Iraq and Syria Jordan, Palestine etc. (Levant region). It has been used by the CIA and Mossad for distorting the image of Islam and for inciting the feelings of Western Christians and Kurds against Muslims. Besides some Islamic countries, a majority of the religious extremists (Muslims) from the western world joined the ISIS. In this context, oblivion on the part of America and Europe about ISIS recruits from their countries is questionable.
After taking note of the grievances of the international community, Russian President Vladimir Putin is rapidly restoring the balance of power in the world. Moscow which also has China’s support is in better position than the US and its western (NATO) allies who are also entangled in a prolonged war in Afghanistan and the Middle East; while America’s endless war against terrorism continues. Besides its Western partners, this new Cold War will further enhance American expenditures by deepening the US momentary problems, while it is already becoming difficult for Washington to maintain its military bases abroad. According to a recent report, America is near military collapse.
In order to divert the attention towards Moscow, Israel was behind election-victory of Donald Trump, while American President Obama had ordered the CIA to review evidence that Russia was behind a series of cyber-attacks that compromised Hillary Clinton’s campaign and may have helped Donald Trump win the presidency. But, Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied the false allegations and demanded evidence in this regard.
As regards terrorism, Machiavelli advises the rulers to have a lion-like image outwardly, and act upon the traits of goat inwardly. He also suggests them foreign adventures and the use of terror to obtain their goals. In his sense, a good ruler should be a good opportunist and hypocrite. While echoing Machiavelli, Morgenthau points out that sometimes, rulers act upon immoral activities like deceit, fraud, falsehood and even murder to fulfill their selfish aims.
Indicating double game, Morgenthau, and Palmer and Perkins opine, “Just as power became the instrument of ambitious nationalism and state’s leaders, it has now become the tool of ideologies. The true nature of the policy is concealed by ideological justifications and rationalization.”
Regrettably, Israel, India and America are implementing the old theories in the modern era of renunciation of war and peaceful settlement of disputes, while social media has converted the world into a global village.
It of particular attention that n February 15, 2017, during a news conference, US President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu projected a message of unity. Indicating contradictory approach, Trump suggested that he was open to alternatives to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict—the US could back a single state as a long-term solution for the region potentially upends decades of international diplomatic efforts aimed at creating an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel.
Trump also asked Netanyahu to “hold back for a little bit” on expanding settlements in Palestinian territory, while the White House works on efforts to revive the Middle East peace process. Netanyahu also refused to commit to a two-state solution. Trump said, “My administration has already imposed new sanctions on Iran. And I will do more to prevent Iran from ever developing—and I mean ever—a nuclear weapon.”
Moreover, quite contrary to his previous statement and setting aside the ground realities, acceleration of the ambush and terror attacks on the installations of the puppet government of Kabul and those of the NATO by the Taliban who are fighting against the occupying forces for liberation of their country, while ignoring the longest war in US history and the most unpopular one too–further increasing American cost of war, including fake global war on terror, President Trump wants to dispatch more troops in Afghanistan. In this regard, in February, this year, while all eyes were on Jeff Sessions’s confirmation as attorney general on the floor of the Senate, Gen. John Nicholson, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, appeared before the Senate Armed Services Committee to ask for a few thousand more U.S. troops. His boss, Gen. Joseph Votel, head of U.S. Central Command, echoed Nicholson’s request, telling senators that a new “strategy” for Afghanistan had to “involve additional forces.”
During and after the presidential election campaign, taking note of the US new President Donald Trump’s religious bigotry, racialism and extremist statements such as calling a “ban on Muslims entering the United States”, “Islam hate us”, opposition to the Muslim refugees, especially from Syria etc., some writers, researches and bloggers, including American politicians have called him a “crazy person”, while some called him a “mad man.”
In fact, American President Donald Trump is neither a “crazy person” nor a “mad man”, as he is acting upon the extremist agenda of Israel and India (Under Prime Minister Modi) without bothering for its dangerous consequences which could envelop the entire world, including the US herself.
It seems that through the skilful diplomacy of the Russian President Putin, very soon Russian-led coalition will liberate Syria and Iraq from the hold of the US-Israeli-led some Western powers. Therefore, in the pretext of targeting ISI terrorists, in depression, Israeli has also started airstrikes in Syria.
Following the conspiracy of Mossad, the rigid and racist policies of Donald Trump are causing more recruitment in the ISIS outfit, inspiring the extremist Muslims for more terror attacks. This Mossad-Trump cabal could also result into civil war in the US. Israel, who will never accept the two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian issue, will prefer to seek the final revenge by bringing about a major war between the Muslim and the Christian worlds or to cause a major war between Russia and the US, which will convert the entire world into holocaust.
Nonetheless, like the previous terror assaults (As already mentioned), the epicenter of terror attack in London can, undoubtedly be detected in Israel whose secret agency Mossad is in collusion with Indian RAW, some American CIA operatives and terrorist outfits like ISIS.
