1. Iran, Hezbollah Reportedly Backing Al-Qaeda Attacks Against US Interests in the Middle East
Iran and Hezbollah have been supervising and funding fighters linked to Al-Qaeda to target US interests in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan, independent Lebanese online newspaper Naharnet reported on Sunday citing a breaking report from pan-Arab daily Asharq Al-Awsat.
Sources told Asharq Al-Awsat that Iran is playing a central role in running the affairs of Al-Qaeda, and even, surprisingly, Jabhat al-Nusra, after it has taken in a number of leading fighters in order to plan terrorist attacks against these US interests.
The sources confirmed that the fighters have been moving between Iranian cities, including Tehran, Meshad and Zahdan. Meanwhile, Iran’s Lebanese proxy Hezbollah has been taking care of planning and providing them with financing.
2. Phased US-Iran nuclear deal taking shape
GENEVA (AP) — The United States and Iran are working on a two-phase deal that clamps down on Tehran’s nuclear program for at least a decade before providing it leeway over the remainder of the agreement to slowly ramp up activities that could be used to make weapons.
Officials from some of the six-power talks with Iran said details still needed to be agreed on, with U.S. and Iranian negotiators meeting Monday for the third straight day ahead of an end-of-March deadline for a framework agreement. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry joined the negotiations after arriving Sunday.
3. Iran Press: Obama desperate for a nuclear deal
How are the ongoing nuclear negotiations between the U.S. and Iran playing out in the Iranian press? Well, the U.S. is being portrayed as desperate.
In an article by Press TV, an Iranian propaganda organ, the headline reads, “Obama ‘under pressure’ to reach nuclear agreement with Iran: Analyst.”
US President Barack Obama is “under pressure” to reach an agreement with Iran over Tehran’s nuclear energy program, an American foreign policy analyst says.
“It’s quite obvious to everyone that Mr. Obama would like to have a deal with Iran,” said James George Jatras, a former US diplomat and adviser to the Senate Republican leadership.
4. Nuclear-Themed Domino Show in Iran Culminates with Missile Destroying Israeli Flag
Thank you Richard, Yucki, M., and all of you who sent in materials.
Iran and al Qaeda working together once again show that Sunni and Shiite will work together to attack the Kuffer.
I cannot think of one actual reason why the Iranians would hold such ill will toward the Israelis and the Jewish People. It’s all so phoney. As far as I know the two countries don’t have anything to do with each other. It’s all sheer nonsense. “Death to Israel!”. Why? What did they ever do to Iran? Their beloved Palestinian brothers? Give me a break. Persians have no love whatsoever for “Bedouins”, especially the lowly Palestinian Arabs, who are all Sunnis, who all hate Shiites – which is what the Iranians are. Entire fields of grade-A, premium manure.
Everything is “narratives” these days, never truth. Somebody invents a narrative, ten-thousand yes-men stand at attention and swear it’s true, and, shazam, you have what passes for the truth in the twenty-first century…
The Iranians are warmongering like crazy and they are being very bad international citizens. The Iranian People should be deeply ashamed at the disgraceful behavior of their own government as well as their own inability to flush them out of power…
1. It fits the apocalyptic nature of Islam. That humans can bring about the end of the world and cause the end of days. Which they view as a good thing. A big part of that prophesy has to do with the hadith on killing Jews.
2. The idea of an area in the general area of islamic control which is an autonomous region not under the sharia and not peopled by muslims is anathema.
“It’s all sheer nonsense. “Death to Israel!”. Why? What did they ever do to Iran? “
What have fags done to Iran? What have women having affairs doe to Iran? There’s no need for the Israelis to have done anything to Iran for the Iranians to see them as mortal enemies. Simply being Jewish will do as a reason. Come on, read your koran!
French carrier joins fight as US reviews anti-IS effort (yahoo, Feb 23, 2015)
“A French aircraft carrier launched operations against the Islamic State jihadist group Monday as the new Pentagon chief summoned top generals and diplomats to Kuwait to review the war effort.
US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter vowed the jihadists would suffer a “lasting defeat” as he convened the meeting of more than two dozen senior military officers, ambassadors and intelligence officials at the sprawling US Army base of Camp Arifjan in Kuwait.
Afterwards, the new Pentagon chief indicated he supported the current strategy and did not call for a major overhaul.
“I think we have the ingredients of the strategy,” Carter told reporters, adding that it was “a combined political and military effort”.
A defence official confirmed Carter did not favour a radical overhaul of the war strategy, even though some US allies and Washington lawmakers have demanded a more aggressive stance in Syria….”

The Palestine Liberation Organization and the Palestinian Authority were the catalysts for a series of terrorist attacks in the early 2000s in Israel that killed or wounded several Americans, a US jury found Monday at a high-stakes civil trial.

U.S. staged mock mall attacks to test readiness after Kenya siege, official says (CNN, Feb 23, 2015)
“After a siege at a Kenyan mall two years ago, the FBI started staging mock attacks in U.S. shopping centers during off hours to test their readiness, an official said.
More than 60 people died when Al-Shabaab militants raided an upscale mall in Nairobi and held shoppers hostage for four days.
The terror group released a video Saturday calling for similar attacks in malls in the United States, Canada and the UK.
Although Homeland Security and the FBI say they are not aware of a specific, credible plot against U.S. malls, they’ve worked to improve security in light of the attack in Kenya.
Last year, the FBI teamed up with various malls nationwide to increase preparedness, a law enforcement official told CNN. It tested the readiness of SWAT teams by staging fake attacks at malls when they were closed, the official said.
Since then, the FBI has had a program that works with malls to improve security, the official said….”
Why Swedish police with machine guns are guarding Jewish schools
371 attacks on French soldiers
Since January 15 the French army’s “Opération Sentinelle” has protected 722 Jewish schools and synagogues, some 24/7 even when the establishments were empty.
The operation came to be regarded as too dangerous for the soldiers who were regularly targets of attacks. Over time the men were worn out.

Analysts Warn that Acquiescing to Iran’s Mideast Ambitions is a Strategic Error
People with brains and knowledge know this, which is why the supporters of the left can’t learn that this action is guaranteed to create a war that will make WWII look small.
By David Rothkopf, the CEO and Editor of the FP Group:
Obama’s Pivot to Iran
Forget the Asia rebalancing. The president’s big legacy is likely to be seen as empowering Tehran.
His legacy is going to be the massive death toll of the war he is helping to create.
This is – like coming from Lebanon – and they should know-
Eyeless on Tehran
Iran’s aim is Arab fragmentation, but America won’t see it
Some see it but most are too blind to see it.
No one in a position to do anything is allowed to say anything.

I read this article when it was published on Feb. 6, figured it too extreme to consider. Now I’m afraid that the writer just be on to something. And it isn’t good.
So read it and tell me it’s all nonsense.
Why Netanyahu will go to America
Its not nonsense, it is a very clear analysis of the situation, the only thing that wasn’t spelled out is the tie in with the Shiite end time prophecies and that was hinted at.
I’m trying to put this in a box on a high shelf in my mind. Hope it collects dust.

Here’s what’s at stake:
I don’t understand why obama wants a nuclear deal with Iran! Am I missing something? Iran has no reason to honour such a deal, it’s just folley……..
He’s a traitor.
