Brad Johnson update on Greece and Turkey

Greece has actually stated it intends to go to war with Turkey over Turkish moves to take oil from Greek waters. There are a few revelations in this briefing with retired CIA Chief of Station, Brad Johnson.

(This was edited and posted very late last night, hence “Bard” instead of Brad.)

A grotesque yet unreported act of war by muslim invaders to Greece

This is blatant and ancient war making. very similar to the salting of the Earth, common in ancient wars.

One needs to read the article in full to understand that this act is more than cutting down a few trees. This is an act of war no different than bombing factories that a national economy depends on. And one where it takes three to four generations to rebuild. And that some of these trees are hundreds and hundreds of years old.

Thank you Oz-Rita for this article. There is no way to pretend this is an individual act anymore. This is the muslim world waging war on Europe for the purpose of conquest.

An attack on Greek heritage, migrants chop thousands of olive trees on Lesvos

It has been a wild few days on the Greek island of Lesvos. The past few days has seen two gangs of Afghani immigrants battle each other and African immigrants ridicule and cough on police in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, as reported by Greek City Times.

 

However, if these incidences were not enough, 5,000 olives trees were cut from their roots by illegal immigrants from the infamous Moria migrant camp, to the north of Lesvos’ capital city of Mytilene.

 

Olive trees take approximately 65-80 years to reach stable yields, meaning that the destroyed trees are a major blow to the local economy. Olive exports amount to about US$700 million every year to the Greek economy.

Interesting. That’s straight from the al-Qaeda playbook:

Chopping down trees was also mentioned in muslim scripture. The Meccans chopped down palm trees during the siege in Medina, if I’m not mistaken. It was considered an act of war in Arabian culture, with good reason.

Apart from the historic and theological connotations, it’s of course an act of agroterrorism. The whole refugee push is of course economic warfare as well. Apart from the cost of housing these people, it killed off tourism in Greece. Who wants to go to Lesbos now?

Btw, Erdogan supports the BM. I vaguely recall the BM endorsed attacking trees in the past, but I’m not sure.

ISIS surely has:

Erdogan supplying his ‘refugees’ with tear gas grenades

Thanks to Tanya T. who breaks a lot of huge news from Bulgarian media. Which I have to say over the years is one of the last honest and daring media outlets left that I am aware of.

Hezbollah missile strikes IDF vehicle near Israeli base on Israel-Lebanon border

Al-Manar, a Hezbollah-affiliated TV channel, has released footage of a missile strike on an Israeli military vehicle near IDF’s Avivim military base on the Israel-Lebanon border. The video shows two Kornet anti-tank missiles fired from different positions and narrowly miss the vehicle which then led to massive artillery fire in retaliation. IDF reported no casualties in the incident. Tension has run high on the border since a drone attack on a Hezbollah stronghold in Beirut last week which could be conducted by IDF.

Our reader Yucki tells us that the missile used, a Kornet, is an expensive and effective, laser guided missile with a range of of 5.5 Km (About 3 miles)

 

 

Something is going on in the Gulf …

The following tweet is from the state propaganda organ, one which Trudeau’s brother worked for or still works for, Press TV:

CNN: Suspected attack on tankers in the Gulf of Oman

Where all of this is taking place

The two tankers were targeted Thursday morning in the Gulf of Oman, the same waterway where four commercial ships were attacked last month.

 

The attacks have ratcheted up existing tensions in the region, where Iran has long been at loggerheads with Saudi Arabia and the UAE — most recently over the civil war in Yemen.

(The Yemeni war is a war of manifest destiny by Iran, using their proxy, the Houthis as they would, Hizb’allah in the regions near Israel and abroad.)

Now The Express, which expressly says it was torpedoes:

The US Navy’s Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet assisted after receiving two distress calls.

Responding to the incident, the Prime Minister’s spokesman said Britain is seeking to establish the facts of what happened while the UK Maritime Trade Operations, which is part of the Royal Navy, urged “extreme caution”.

Front Altair, owned by Frontline, was carrying 75,000 tonnes of petroleum product naphtha and was headed to Taiwan.

Click over to the Express article, it’s the most informative so far.

Some updates on the exchanges between Israel and Hamas

Fighting persists into Sunday after weekend of heavy cross-border fire; rocket also reported to hit apartment building in Sderot; Israel hits sites in Gaza

 

A man was killed when a rocket slammed into his home in southern Israel early Sunday morning, as Gazan terrorists pummeled Israeli towns with projectiles and Israel responded with hundreds of airstrikes over the weekend.

More updates as they come in will be posted here till tomorrow.

 

 

Update on the War in Gaza

From Gates of Vienna:

Our Israeli correspondent MC sends the latest news from Sderot:

Although you may be reading in the news about a ‘peace deal’, the reality on the ground is different.

The past three days have seen sporadic shelling and bombing (outgoing), with continued kite and balloon attacks.

 

Tonight we are hearing artillery and gunfire with aircraft etc.

The area has all the signs of a military campaign in the making. We passed a field full of tanks coming in from Ashkelon today. Given that it is Shabbat, this is serious. Normally things stop at sunset on Friday, but not tonight. Expect some move soon.

 

It appears that Hamas’ control may not have be as complete as they would have us believe, and that a faction in Gaza is trying to provoke instability.

For those who are interested, here’s the story from Arutz Sheva on the “peace deal”:
