October 31, 2012 – While the hurricane Sandy caused destruction currently blows most other news off of the global media’s front pages, the destruction of the Libyan town of Sirte has gone largely unreported by the same media. A reader however pointed out to me that a photo of the NATO-destroyed hometown of Muammar Gaddafi shows surprising similarities with a photo of destroyed homes and businesses in the Rockaway section of the Queens borough of New York City which was hit by Sandy.
Sirte, a coastal town of around 100,000 residents, once was considered to be the center of urban development in Libya but became the target of NATO and its “revolutionary Libyan rebels” soon after the so-called fall of Tripoli in August 2011, not in the least because of its imperturbable loyalty to Muammar Gaddafi and the Jamahiriya government. After weeks of siege and horrifying war crimes committed by NATO and the rebels in the Orwellian version of “protecting civilians”, Sirte’s inhabitants turned into homeless refugees and the city was named the modern day Stalingrad.

Only recently scientists found out that 97% of the human DNA actually isn’t “junk” but has a higher purpose. Empty space was found to be filled with the invisible torsion wave energy at different degrees of concentration. The “junk” DNA turned out to play critical roles in the behaviour of cells, organs and other tissues, which discovery soon will lead to more revolutionary breakthroughs and which will make mankind more aware of their coherence with and influence on others beings and the Whole.

Is this Abushagur calling the media about Moussa Ibrahim’s arrest?
October 23, 2012 – “In the Theatre of the Absurd, anything is possible”, former executive member of the Tripoli based World Mathaba, Gerald A. Perreira, wrote in one of his already historic articles last year. “However, this latest scenario in Libya has taken absurdity to a whole new dimension”, he added.
In his May 2011 article, Perreira referred to the bunch of armed, al-Qaeda affiliated tribesmen who were called “pro-democracy fighters” by mainstream media outlets and who were openly armed and trained by the American and European governments in order to overthrow Libya’s revolutionary Jamahiriya government and to assassinate its symbolic leader Muammar Gaddafi. Little did Perreira know about the new stage of drama the Theatre would bring in 2012…
Almost eighteen months later now, Libya once again took centre stage in the Theatre and once again took absurdity to new extremes when on Saturday the world press as blindly as massively jumped on a Twitter message by the Deputy Prime Minister of the NATO-installed Libyan regime Mustafa Abushagur, which in Arabic language said:
Criminal Moussa Ibrahim was arrested and he is now on his way to Tripoli. Continue reading
The daughter of the late Syrian Defense Minister Daoud Rajha at her father’s funeral (Reuters)
October 12, 2012 – On Friday Dutch cameraman Roel Rekko was announced the winner of the Stan Storimans Prize 2012, a prize for cameramen of news programs. Rekko received the award for a documentary he made in Damascus during the funeral of Syrian Defense Minister Daoud Rajha who was killed by a terrorist suicide bomb on July 18.
Despite its length of less than two minutes, the jury considered the report to be “very layered” and therefore worth the prize named after Dutch cameraman Stan Storimans who died in an airstrike on the Georgian city of Gori during the 2008 South Ossetia War. Continue reading
October 3, 2012 – “It is all orchestrated by the U.S. and Turkey”, he says. “They are behind this chaos. World War III already started, people just don’t recognize it. It’s no longer soldiers of one country fighting soldiers of an other country you know.”
“Indeed”, I say, pleasantly surprised. This middle-aged Turkish man next to me on the train in a West-European country isn’t supposed to have an opinion like that. “Nowadays’ wars are fought by foreign mercenaries and supported by many youth and many ignorant that have been brought into the streets to act in fake, corporate-fascist financed ‘revolutions’. Those people have been duped into believing in the sincerity of those fake revolutions by the Zionist and imperialist powers, don’t you think so too?”
The Turkish man, I forgot his exact name but it sounded like Ishafin, nodds at me. “And now that bitch gave them another 45 million dollars!”
I giggle a bit about the word bitch, I know exactly who he means. “Hitlery, Killery“, I say conspiratorial. Continue reading
August 28, 2012 – Like Reuters a few weeks ago, Amnesty International claims to be hacked on Monday when an article with headline “Amnesty calls on UN to stop the US, Qatar and Turkey funding and arming Syria rebels” condemning the foreign-backed armed insurgents who seek to overthrow the Syrian government appeared on its blog livewire.amnesty.org.
An other article that appeared during the alleged hack contains the testimony of a Bahraini activist who states he “escaped the most oppressive regime in the world”.
The articles have been removed from the blog now, but one of them is still available at breakingnews.sy. Continue reading

August 1, 2012 – “Syria is known as the safest country in the Middle East, possibly because, as the State Department’s Web site says, ‘the Syrian government conducts intense physical and electronic surveillance of both Syrian citizens and foreign visitors’. It’s a secular country where women earn as much as men and the Muslim veil is forbidden in universities, a place without bombings, unrest, or kidnappings.* Syria. The name itself sounded sinister, like syringe, or hiss. Syria is a dictatorship, which is the default mode throughout the region.”**
Makes sense? It does in Miss Joan Juliet Buck‘s world – and she isn’t bipolar, as far as I know. Continue reading
