MASTER PIECE »» Pepe Escobar :: Netanyahu’s UN speech: Sounds like a sociopath?

MASTER PIECE »» Pepe Escobar :: Netanyahu’s UN speech: Sounds like a sociopath? | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Iranian missiles will hit New York in “three to four years”. A nuclear Iran is like “50 North Koreas”.

This could be the sound of a deranged, dangerous sociopath, or this could be the sound of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu addressing the UN General Assembly. 

Compare for yourself. Last week we had Iranian President Hassan Rouhani calling for the world to surf a WAVE (as in World Against Violence and Extremism). 

This week we had Bibi saying that was a “cynical” and “totally hypocritical honey trap”.   

In the world according to Netanyahu, “Ahmadinejad was a wolf in wolf’s clothing. Rouhani is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.” Rouhani tried to present himself as “pious”, but he’s always been involved with “the terror state of Iran”. He’s like “a serial killer going to court dressed in clerical attire and giving testimony to his nature as an ‘ethical’ and ‘religious’ man.”   

Quociente Cultural 's insight:

Pepe on FB " My latest on RT on Bibi at the UN. RT softened the original title, which was Bibi The Sociopath. It goes way beyond the speech, detailing what is the real "existential threat" to Israel. "

Pepe Escobar :: “Rebeldes” sírios: entre a Al-Qaeda e Washington

Pepe Escobar :: “Rebeldes” sírios: entre a Al-Qaeda e Washington | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Se ainda faltasse alguma prova extra para destroçar o mito de uma luta “revolucionária” para alguma futura Síria “democrática”, as manchetes da semana acabaram com qualquer dúvida remanescente.

Onze, treze ou catorze brigadas “rebeldes” (o número varia conforme a fonte) já fizeram descarrilar o tal Conselho Nacional Sírio, dito “moderado” e mantido pelos EUA, e o nada livre Exército Sírio Livre. Os líderes do bando “rebelde” são os jihadistas tresloucados da Frente al-Nusra – mas o bando inclui outras podridões, como as brigadas Tawhid e Tajammu Fastaqim Kama Ummirat em Aleppo, algumas imundícies das quais eram, até recentemente, parte do Exército Sírio Livre, já em pleno colapso.

Na prática, os jihadis ordenaram que a miríade de “moderados” se submetesse, que se “unificasse num quadro claramente islamista” e que jurasse fidelidade a uma Síria futura na qual a lei da sharia seja “a fonte única da legislação”.

f we confine our choices to leaders with broad appeal in the Arab and Islamist mainstream — excluding both al-Qaida and Kurdish leaders — we get the following five, listed in order.

Hassan Abboud

1. Hassan Abboud, the general head of the Islamic movement of Ahrar Al-Sham, spearheaded the joint position of what some are calling the Islamic Alliance, but which is looser than an alliance of mainly northern-based militias. They have rejected the SNC and US backed exile groups. Al-Nusra was one of the groups that signed the alliance, along with #3 and #4 below. So far this is
