US Reacts To Ankara's Idlib Operation: Restores Supplies To Al-Qaeda-Affiliated Groups, Suspends All Non-Immigrant Visa Services In Turkey

FILE IMAGE: Jaish al-Izza member

The US has resumed its support to few Free Syrian Army (FSA) groups in Idlib governorate after 2 months of pausing it, the Syrian opposition news website Enab Baladi reported on October 8.

According to the report, the US Military Operation Center in Turkey, named by Turks “MOM”, resumed its support for Jaish al-Nasser in Idlib. Jaish al-Nasser is considered one of the main allies of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda).

However, the US didn’t resume its support for Jaysh al-Izza, another ally of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in Idlib governorate.

The report claimed that the US paused its support to the FSA groups that refused to take part in the Astana talks and to the FSA groups that supported the HTS attack in the northern Hama countryside.

However, these claims are untrue as Jaish al-Nasser was the key HTS ally in its attack on the northern Hama countryside back in March not only Jaysh al-Izza.

Some Syrian opposition sources even claimed that both Jaysh al-Nasr and Jaysh al-Izza secretly supported the recent HTS attacks in the northern Hama countryside on September 19 and August 7.

The US decision to resume its support to some pro-HTS FSA groups in Idlib governorate could be linked to the millitary operation of the Turkish Army and the FSA in the governorate.

In a related development, the US embassy in Turkey announced in an official statement that the US suspended all non-immigrant visa services at all U.S. diplomatic facilities in Turkey. The US embassy claimed that an unspecified “recent events” have forced the US government “to reassess the commitment of the Government of Turkey to the security of U.S. Mission facilities and personnel”.

US Reacts To Ankara's Idlib Operation: Restores Supplies To Al-Qaeda-Affiliated Groups, Suspends All Non-Immigrant Visa Services In Turkey

The US decision is likely another step in response to the upcoming Turkish military operation in Idlib governorate. The US decision can be considered as another evidence that the battle against HTS does not contribute to the US strategic goals in Syria.

Another clear evidence that US supports terrorists.

Mountains

lool. put down the vodka. The US has clearly commited genocide on ISIS fighters families and civilians in their controlled areas forget about ISIS itself

Alex

put you crack down , us is clearly providing training to troops that rotate in and out of HTS and iSIS, clearly american made weapons are landing in isis and HTS hands, they kill some isis in order not to loose face completly and actually US is undeniably the biggest terrorist of them all.

Daniel Castro

Bot the biggest, second after ISrael…

Mountains

I can’t believe that in 2017 people who believe nonsense exist. The solely reason they entered syria was to fight ISIS otherwise they had no interest.

Just watch and see the bombardment they did to ISIS held areas and see if that is what you call support. They want to eliminate them period

Alex

bla bla bla, they enterd Syria to remove Assad, first they have used proxies, after the proxies have failed they have decided to intervene themselves. now they are removing one proxy and strengthening another, they still train fighters that have close contacts with Nusra and Nusra is Al qaida and the ignored multiple calls by russia to separate the fsa and nusra.

Kennethllindsy

There are far too many competing interests to narrow it down that far.
FSA groups will fight amongst each other. And so will Jihadi groups.
Right now HTS is dominant in Idlib after defeating Ahrar AL Sham.
So other militias will ally themselves with HTS to survive.

Tudor Miron

Kenny troll, save this BS for state department talking heads :) “Far too many to narrow down” between those that chop heads and those that eat hearts on the camera? Anyone that helps destroying Suryan state are good for your masters.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

The largest factions are no longer with HTS and only a handful will ally with them, they are done as most FSA will disarm. HTS is being wiped out in the Beit Jinn area, soon they will be no longer there. Most of these factions are not willing to align with a terrorist faction as they are fast becoming one that is destroyed and targeted by the Russians and SAA.

Kennethllindsy

We will see what happens.
Turks thought that HTS would agree to Astana Plan and Turk occupation; but looks like HTS has other ideas.

HTS is well armed and a sizeable force including many Chechens (as shown on recent clips).

Turks probably only have stomach for a 10 Mile deep security zone, especially once they start suffering casualties.

HTS knows Turks are risk averse, so it won’t easily give up.

ruca

Bullshit. This is about the Oded Yinon Plan and you know it.

Tudor Miron

I can’t actually believe in such stupidity that you show in your posts. If you imagine that someone buys your BS than it shows that you hope that other people are even more stupid but that’s just not possible.

Garga

Tudor, perhaps there’s a quota he and other hasbarats need to meet in order to earn their paycheck.
That’s why they don’t care if someone answers them politely, curses them or exposes them.

With permission from Kyle Reese:
That Hasbarat is out here. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel shame, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until he pleases his master.

Tudor Miron

Very well said but I would not agree with only one thing – fear is what they constantly feel. Even their greed is a product of their (often unconcsious) fear.

Garga

Right!
Thank you. I’ll edit it with something more fitting.
Changed fear with humiliation.

santiago

Nonsense does exist, you are a perfect example of what nonsense is, and you could also be defined as an imbecile.

I am so sorry for you. Go visit your victim friends, and continue spewing stupidity, you have my permission.

Kennethllindsy

That’s one of the problems with the Iraq/Syria Theater in that there are about 183 different tribes & clans all having different interests & shifting loyalties.

It’s not a new problem, as it has existed for hundreds & probably thousands of years.

And it does somehat explain how the Seljuks & only 400 horsemen from Turkmenistan & Alp Arslan descendants were able to destroy the Arab Empire and rule the Arabs for the past 900 years.

Kira Binkley

You think you’re smart, too. I don’t.

Kennethllindsy

You are entitled to your own opinions.

santiago

I feel more entitled when I give facts rather than senseless opinions based on ignorance and incongruent mind shit.

Gary Sellars

lool. put down the pig. Its squealing is annoying your neighbours in the next valley over….

The US commits genocide all over the planet. Its what militaristic expansionist fascist nations do.

santiago

I didn’t know that helping them breed and giving them money and weapons was committing genocide?

Your perverted mind is astounding. You, like your perverted cronies want to twist everything around inlcudding simple definitions and concepts.

No sir, Genocide does not mean to help.

Kennethllindsy

Unconfirmed stories from Syria State friendly source are not evidence – just rumour mongering. So it isn’t clear evidence of anything.

But, a close reading of Trump’s actions in directing the US end the CIA program does show that it was to be wound down & not abruptly ended although funding to some groups was terminated.

*The US had been reducing aid to rebels for some time over the past years and Turkey, Qatar, Saudio Arabia etc. had been increading their aid.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

Where do you get your information as they never stopped funding them , you can do a smoke a mirrors show with someone else but not me.

There has been a steady increase quite contrary to the claims, the amount of smuggling going on through NGOs is ludicrous , it’s stepped up so much I am ashamed to have donated anything so they can continue their criminal behavior and murderous ways.

Kennethllindsy

There were groups that publicly groused about no longer receiving funding.
But we should look at the big picture, which is that the US CIA involvement has dropped off on recent years while Turk, Qatar, Saudi etc have increased funding.
The Syria/Iraq theater is sandwiched between Turks, Arabs & Persians all competing for power and influence.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

Explain to everyone here how the US sent 500 million dollars of weapons through Iraqi ISIS territory and flew that equipment to Erbil by Globemasters. Apparently the CIA has never got the memo in this region and have had contractors supplying all this on top of that to these so called “moderate headchoppers” and never stopped.

The only one vying for any power in the region is the US and these countries are trying to stabilize a now volatile region inflamed by the same said groups backed by NATO intelligence. The US stepped up everything since the the debacle of the Green Zone stop trying to feed disinformation.

The big picture is this the US should GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE REGION BEFORE THEY CAUSE A CALAMITY THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ESCAPE FROM!!!!

Kennethllindsy

US DOD spends about $2 billion per day.
That $500 million wasted on training only 4 fighters a few years ago isn’t material.
As US is allied with the Sunni Gulf States, it will not be leaving the region any time soon.
Especially with Iran making threats.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

Those 4 fighters came equipped with terrorist cells and everything weapons and equipment, the US is unfortunately the problem not the solution. The story got convoluted by two interpretations, what was said if the US thinks the IRGC is such a terrorist why isn’t US bases 2000 km away as that is their current range. Sounds like the US is antagonizing again just as they were with the Japanese back in the late 1930’s by slapping on punitive embargoes, time for the rest of the world stop trading with the US. This way the US may have time to grow up and stop acting like an insolent little child who is afraid of losing his toys.

Brother Ma

Haha i remember that! Woe to americans who could have beneffitted from hospitals and schools with that kind of money!

It still worries me why the Americans have not riotted and had second Civil war yet but i suppose the quality of education, constant blaring of bullshit media and constant struggle to survive on serf’s wages has kicked the stuffing out of regular nice American.

I am so glad i am not an American and had my eyes opened.

America the free and the brave. Horseshit!
It should read America, the land of the duped and enslaved!

America is only a beacon of hope to those blameless poor people that come from shitholes .

Anybody born and raised in a real country both laughs at and cries for ,the nice American average people.

Vitex

You’d love to believe what you say. The USA and Israel are the major instigators of this conflict, and you just don’t like it.

santiago

Something that is very well documented, better than in any other conflict in the past, which is strange due to the apparent complexity and converging interests form many groups and nations.

We have testimonies by Obama, supporting ISIL and many groups that are not HTS, we have many other officials as well from both Israel and US, we have complete investigations of oil movement, selling and the money payments as well as how weapons enter even on what aircrafts and on what airports those weapons are loaded and unloaded at, we have policy papers, etc….

There is probably less evidence and documentation regarding the culpability of the Empire of Japan of pearl harbours attack.

Bob

However, under the US’ own Patriot Act, for US citizens aiding and abetting, let alone transiting and supplying heavy weaponry, to known and listed terrorist organizations, particularly Al Qeada affiliates, it’s a federal criminal offense with extremely serious penalties …oh, except the CIA has raft of exemptions from such US Federal laws.

Kira Binkley

It’s a John McCain thing.

Vitex

He won’t be missed.

Kennethllindsy

Not only CIA is exempt; but also SOCOM is under direct Presidential control.

Brother Ma

Bob, are you joking or are you serious? Is it really true that cia has exemptions actually written into statute of Patriot Act?

Bob

It goes back far further – the ‘CIA Act of 1949/ Public law 110’ was enacted so that the CIA could act outside constraints of US Federal Law. In accordance they are not restricted by US Federal Laws in how they use their Federal funds, nor do they have to disclose the agencies size, personnel, functions or salaries as would any other Federal funded bureaucracy. In practice, this means they operate essentially without the restrictions of US Federal Laws – and they use Federal allocated monies to finance it all without comparable accountability.

Brother Ma

Thanks Bob.

javier

what a bunch of propaganda shit-they have loaded up the kurds with billions in weapons in the last year, and yes they are terrorists

Kennethllindsy

The YPG aren’t terrorists, nor is the SDF.

US & EU called Pkk terrorists at Turk request; but Pkk should be more accurately called “Insurgents” today, not terrorists.

YPG has an office in Moscow; nor has Russia designated Pkk as terrorists either – since Russia has supported Pkk for 30 years.

Robert Duran

This guy actually believes the shit he is spewing out..

santiago

PKK is considered a terrorist organisation by many and it is getting there for the rest.

Any reactionary communist organisation is a terrorist organisation in my book, which is the one that matters.

Robert Duran

Are you just stupid or insane?

Michelle Ricoy

What unconfirmed stories? You mean the ones i and anyone can confirm due to the plethora of evidence? WE HAVE THE AIRCRAFT NUMBERS!!! We also have us officials and documents completely exposing their support for terrorist organisations.

christianblood

U$A is a satanic, pro-jihadist, imperialist entity which should be exposed and defeated every where.

Tudor Miron

I just wander how american people like their government funding and arming the very same Al Queda that killed thousands of them.

John

We don’t. Most have no clue though. The MSM in particular supports it by staying silent on the issue.

Tudor Miron

Do you see that mountain guy reply above? I wonder is he ignorant or simply a snakehead?

Lupus

An ignorant snakehead

Gary Sellars

He’s just an inbred hillbilly.

John

I read it Tudor. I have exchanged with Mountains before. My perspective on things differs greatly from theirs. The events are going to keep the record straight. The US and Occidentals are getting creamed of late. My guess is opinions like his will just mark points of insanity as the ship was going down. So, I pay him no mind anymore, along with a bunch of others. Anybody consistently removed from daily reality, I don’t give much thought. A good week to you Tudor.

Tudor Miron

Thanks John and I wish you have a nice week/month/year as well.

Vitex

And a simple head-count will tell you some interesting facts about the ethnicity of those who control the MSM

John

They are slaves to the 10-K, in my opinion. It’s fake beyond reasoning with them. They would sell the family into prostitution for ratings and sales. A good week to you Vitex.

Great work, Erdogan! You sucked Trump right in to making the worst move possible for America. President Assad is to be the leader of Syria, now and in the coming months, years possibly, until Syria is stable once more. Arming Assad’s “loyal opposition” will delay the stabilization of Syria and cause more chaos and confusion. World leaders know who is to blame.

Probably on the dead bodies of poor Iranian. Do you have a conscious? Is money everything? No ethics at all? You call yourself a media?
At least call yourself what you are: An Iranian Russian Shiite Assad propaganda cheap talks.
I dont care about US, but Qaeda was defended by Hezbollah in my country several times among them Nahr El-Bared 2007 and Arsal 2013-2017, you can lie to stupid Western but not too me.

Why are you so stupid?

Part 1 Goyim United September 20, 2017 / Gilad Atzmon Not exactly Soros’s wet dream. http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/2017/9/20/goyim-united
Goyim United will never be defeated by racist supremacist Jews. racist supremacist Jews are losing, the days of their racist supremacist Jewish global slave empire are numbered. This is why racist supremacist Jews.want to ban free speech. Poor whites don’t oppress poor blacks. Poor blacks don’t oppress poor whites, if they were the oppressors they would not be rich.
When Goyims can get together and talk in a free speech environment, they can figure things out very well and understand that only by uniting against their common oppressor can they be free and by reading the Jewish press, especially the ones based in Israel in order to get a full understanding of what they routinely plan in respect to the Stupid Goyim. Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself. Nothing beats the confession.
It is where I get almost all my info. You’ll usually see them admitting things
that would never make it into the American or Western media, and if you’re not up on the Zionist, Jewish, racist, supremacist, empire, their rantings of hatred and racism against all Goyim and bragging of their murdering millions and millions of Goyim and their total control of countries like the USA, Britain France, German etc. in their global empire it can be quite
enlightening, indeed.
But they do differ from Jews, who are America’s wealthiest religious group.” http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/10/11/how-income-varies-among-u-s-religious-groups/ September 20, 2017 / Gilad Atzmon This unexpected moment happened when Black Lives Matter activists were invited on stage at a pro-Trump rally (via NowThis Politics) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KHEwLaxULc https://www.facebook.com/NowThisNews/videos/1709220972442719/

part 2 American Society isn’ t a Zoo and White People Aren’t Monkeys
http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/2017/8/24/american-society-isnt-a-zoo-and-white-people-arent-monkeys
Make sure they read Peter Beinart’s Forward article, in the American Jewish forward which Goyims are not supposed to be allowed to read. The One Thing Jews Should Be Doing To Combat White Supremacy.
http://forward.com/opinion/380664/the-one-thing-jews-should-be-doing-to-combat-white-supremacy/
Beinart, a light Zionist ‘intellectual’ has kindly revealed how American Jews reacted when they heard the “neo-Nazis” chant, “Jews will not replace us.” Some were fearful, but, Beinart asserts, many others were somehow amused by it. “Replace you? Where, behind the counter at Wendy’s? We’re successful, industrious, upper-middle class. You’re the dregs of society. Replace you? Don’t kid yourselves. When it comes to America’s class hierarchy, we replaced you and your kind long ago.”
In the most supremacist and stereotypical manner, Beinart counsels his fellow Jews to fool the goyim.
Soon the Goyim will be banned from reading the Jewish and Israeli press on the internet etc. by Google, Face books etc the racist supremacist master Jewish chosen Jewish race, because evil needs secrecy and darkness to survive and dies in the light of day and truth.comment image

a patriot, how silly

R3mba

fuck you jihad scum..

Kennethllindsy

Joumana is not a jihadi supporter, neither sunni or shia.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

Talk about another terrorist supporter you defend the US ,which by the definition based on it’s current and past actions denote it as one.

Kira Binkley

Also well said.

Kennethllindsy

There are degrees of terrorism. ISIS is an example of the most extreme version.
And US never should have supported AL Zinki.

Ronald

The US should never have supported any of these Wahhabi jihadists , going all the way back to founding Al Qaeda . The fact that it did and continues to do so , is not only an unethical act of war against Syria , but against mankind .

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

There is no such thing as varying degrees of terrorism since the word is explanatory and to say anything to the contrary just shows your lack and due consideration of the word.

Nouri al Zenki was supported by the Pentagon ,Nusra/HTS/ISIS are Al Qaeda and supported by the CIA and are the exact same child beheaders and murderers as Zenki, , these are all groups supported by the US. What point you tried to make is a major fail as there is no difference between these groups, they still kill and terrorize no such thing as less or more in this case.

FlorianGeyer

You keep making a narrative for its ‘Shia OR Sunni’ .
The MAJORITY of President Assads soldiers are SUNNI who fight for Syria alongside all other Muslim sects , together with Christians and others.

Many Americans seem to be stuck in this Sunni versus Shia rut that is possibly due to the appalling propaganda and lack of knowledge in the US about world affairs.

It may appear be Black and White in the USA for you but in the rest of the world there are many colours and when they are mixed there is a melange of ideologies,beliefs and prejudices.

Kira Binkley

Well said.

Kennethllindsy

Not actually. The SAA is very weak and the majority of fighting now is being done by Militias, Russians and Shia Palestinians, Shia Afghans & Shia Iranians.
The SAA has a severe manpower shortage and has tested to conscrpting teenagers & grandfathers.
Russian Military has said only 20,000 native SAA are capable of fighting.
It’s been a long war.

RichardD

You’re a ziotroll disinfo peddler.

You are mistaken.

FlorianGeyer

It certainly has been a long war and I suspect the USA will be having a rather bad year in 2018 as her support of world terrorism becomes too obvious to ignore.
Possibly a nuclear strike on the US mainland as well as a bonus for US treachery .

See? Writing gibberish and claiming nonsense is not unique at all. We can do it too.

Claims that Hezbollah’s inviting Lebanese army to political talks instead of storming the Nahr AlBared refugee camp in (Cool Spring) is equal to defending AQ. Nasrallah said Lebanon mustn’t be engaged and stuck with AQ on behalf of the US and do it’s dirty work.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

Talk about #Spreading Lies and #FakeNews!!??!! #FakeSJW #AlertFakePartisan
Why do you go on with you rantings thinking your bias and one sided opinion is the correct version. There are others who have another version which seems to backed by fact and can be subjected to scrutiny where your version can be dissected and disseminate.

The reason why these groups wanted Daesh out of Arsal was obvious and had more to with trying to prevent unnecessary casualties , it was safer to send them to a region where their ideology can only infect those like them. This way they can cause no more harm to others who don’t want to be filled with their taint.

Why don’t you look at those who are trying to make a difference unlike you who do your fake empathy,you go name calling and yet you offer no proof.This hatred you have towards the ones you named seems rooted in a lack of understanding and yet you have a strong bias of siding with the west despite your denial of it.

Joumana Gebara

name calling? you proved nothing, I put proof, from Hezbollah itself, you just blabla.

The US cut back services because of Turk harassment of US consular staff, US citizens & EU citizens.
Nothing to do with Syria.

Turk is becoming a Rogue Nation.

Hakan Berberler

really!! it is simply because, Turkey has agreed with Russia on idlib operation. very simple and clear

Kennethllindsy

NYT article yesterday 10-7-17 in great detail about Turk detaining doZena of US citizens as hostages to force return of Gulen.
Unanimous vote in US Congress to sanction Turk for violence when Erdogan visited in May and told his security team to assault women & old men protesting his visit.
Etc.

RichardD

So what do you think about Israel killing and torturing US citizens? I guess that you don’t have a problem with that. But Israel is Jew and Turkey is Moslem. So as long as Jews do it you say nothing.

Kennethllindsy

Which events are you reffering to?
The US spy ship that was sank by Israel, or some other events?
I am opposed to all human rights violations, including those by US & Israel.

RichardD

So now Mr. know it all is playing dumb. Let me guess, you’re a big Jew pedophile rape cult supporter aren’t you? Lie and deny, did you learn that from the Talmud cult manual?

Kennethllindsy

Now You are being silly.
I was merely asking what events he was talking about.

RichardD

What do you think should be done about Jew crime and evil? Pedophile raping 1,000 Jew cult children a week and 100+ UN and other international law resolutions against them.

dutchnational

Hi, hi.

Pedophilism is part of the Q’uran, something clerics instruct muslims to follow both in its entirety and literally.

Turky last year only dumping the parliamentory law proposal to endorse rape of minors as long as the perpetrator married the victim, of whatever age, afterwards. Only dumped after Erdogan got afraid of international reactions. Laws similar exist in several muslim countries or have just been abolished.

RichardD

More evasion. You didn’t answer the question ziotroll.

dutchnational

I do not respond to racism and antisemitism. Never. I find it despicable.

RichardD

It has nothing to do with despicable you liar. You’re afraid of the cold, hard, undeniable facts about Jew crime and evil and don’t want them exposed. That’s the only reason that you won’t debate them.

Kira Binkley

Get your head/heart out of the toilet, man. You are sick,to stick to this type of inflammatory speech.

dutchnational

Cannot stand the truth?

It is a matter of record, contrary to the antisemitic remarks above, to which you donot protest.

Another antisemitic racist found?

Kira Binkley

Good bye, slimeball. Or maybe douchebag is more appropriate.

Believe everything the “vile entanglement of Leftism and Global Deep State” tell you, don’t you? American-Stupid.

RichardD

You’re the antisemite supporting your evil baby raping cult.

Jaime Galarza

Will you call me antisemitic for asking you to reply to RichardD’s points?

dutchnational

No, why?

I will just not participate in this ranting.

Rakean Jaya

“Pedophilism is part of the Q’uran” ,oh please you’re seem expert in Quran now, show us which part/surah in Q’uran about pedophilism? Or are you losing your argument again, then going crazy as usual, typical zio troll following their hasbara SOP.

Tommy Jensen

Talmud says the Quran urge moslems to be pedo´s. You can see it in the Talmud yourself.

Rakean Jaya

I don’t know about Talmud, but if so, how very wrong Talmud is.

dutchnational

Mohammed marrying an 8yo girl, graciously waiting with s*x for some time?

In all Western nations, that is legally considered pedophilic. In many muslim countries too.

Rakean Jaya

You didn’t answer my previous question, which part in Qur’an said about pedophilism? and then now, just spouting other nonsense, poor you, are you Geert Wilder in disguise?

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

WTF is racist and antisemitic about ZIOTROLL, this will become a new word sounds kitschy.
Besides the word zio refers to ideology the other is slang for one who baits or trawls. Seems the one being a bigot is you.

dutchnational

He mentioned jews specifically in Nazi propaganda, that is antisemitic. End of story.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

Haven’t you ever heard of the National Zionist Movement it was all about starting a country which is known today as Israel. Why is that antisemitic +150,000 Jews served in the Nazi Army those are just facts.

RichardD

Really? The Jews are the ones raping 1,000 cult children a week, not the Moslems.

matt

you never reacted on condemning female circumcision by muslims, why not??

RichardD

Because they outlawed it, and it was a problem in only a small number of Muslim nations to start with. It’s an African problem, not a Muslim problem.

matt

Not true, it still happens in much bigger number then the jewish one that you keep on pointing out. and not only in african countries

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_genital_mutilation

RichardD

The article says that it’s not a religious issue, that it’s an African issue.

matt

no it does not, yemen iraqi kurdistan and indonesia are not africa. even if it does, it is a far bigger problem then what you keep on repeating!!!!

RichardD

Really?

“UNICEF estimated in 2016 that 200 million women living today in 30 countries—27 African countries”

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_genital_mutilation

matt

in case you don’t trust wikipedia:

What don’t you understand about:

“UNICEF estimated in 2016 that 200 million women living today in 30 countries—27 African countries”

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_genital_mutilation

matt

it is a crime and a cult, with far more victims you FUCKING HYPOCRITE

RichardD

Your lies and false accusations don’t make me a hypocrite. You’re just trying to divert attention away from the Jew baby raping cult. That embraces and pedophile rapes 1,000 cult children a week. While parading around as God’s chosen people.

matt

look more carefully to the flag….

RichardD

Evasion from a ziotroll. About what I expected.

FlorianGeyer

Its always the same Richard. Its in the Zio troll manual.

RichardD

Yes, in the chapter on damage control.

matt

richard Desperate has been oraly raped by jews….

FlorianGeyer

Israel attacked an AMERICAN naval ship, the USS Liberty, and machine gunned AMERICAN sailors in the water. This air and sea attack went on for some hours and was NOT an accident Kenneth. As you well know.

Boris Kazlov

Please enumerate violations by US and Israel you are opposed to, that is if it fits on this page.

Tommy Jensen

US citizens were born, raised and educated to die for Israel. Every US citizen agree to that.

RichardD

Not me or the majority of voters in 85% of the counties and land in the US who voted against the criminally insane Israel first psychopaths.

FlorianGeyer

There is little point in quoting the discredited NYT here Kenneth.

Boris Kazlov

How heart-wrenching !. Women and old men, why not children? They were interfering in an official visit, typical disgusting CIA troll distorting facts.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

This happens when you break the law of other countries, you are a guest their and are forewarned about this behavior before traveling. There are no exceptions by saying “But I am an American” please don’t insult other Americans on this continent by your rude behaviors it reflects badly on us gringos and gauchos comprendre.

FlorianGeyer

Turkey is just waking up to the fact that the US Elite are a crock of shit who would sell their kids into prostitution for power and money.

Boris Kazlov

And what could be defined as a rogue nation? Maybe that one engaged in regime change, spurning international law, genocide, attack on weaker countries, those descriptions befit Yankistan more than any other country in the world.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

Guess the Rogue nation didn’t like being forced to comply with international laws regarding embassies and got pissy about it again.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

What no more free dental plan!

CIA in Turkey dont like Turkey´s plastic bags over their heads and to be asked to pess off.

I’ve noticed the CIA and Mossad trolls have flooded this site recently, this is a good indicator of the influence and effectiveness of SouthFront in spreading the truth and exposing the lies of the terrorist Satanic Jew World Order led by (((the United Snakes)))

FlorianGeyer

I have been thinking that myself BL.

Tudor Miron

Kenny is one of latest :)

FlorianGeyer

Most shills have little conviction or real knowledge. They just read from a playbook that uses Intimidation, ridicule, foul language and twisted facts to attack their targets.

They often lack any real understanding of the language they use and the narratives they put forward.

It is easier for us Tudor, as we state facts and not wilful fantasy.
All Truth needs to prevail are honest men and women with the courage to speak it. It can take time to overcome the propaganda of powerful forces but TRUTH supported by FACTS on the ground always wins.

hahahahah, facts, heheheheh

HATOstani troll pagers must eb running hot these days…

“Alert – all available hands! The truth is being discussed on SF (again), action is required.”

Boris Kazlov

It is not led by Yankistan, that country is the military muscle of Tel Aviv, the financial and MSM dominator.

BL

It’s actually centered in the US, ISIS-RA-HELL is just their backup option in case the Goyim rise up and decide to Shoah them again. But ultimately they did have a goal of creating Greater ISIS-RA-HELL and have it become the main superpower of the world after the US ponzi scheme economy falls apart but their delusional dreams were burried in Syria.

matt

hahahahah

Attrition47

Don’t be a dickhead, there’s nothing Jewish about zionism.

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

dutchnational equates being called a ziotroll as being racist and antisemitic

BL

I have an open mind and I’m willing to debate with you regarding this issue. In fact I am a follower of the True Torah Jews organization who works tirelessly to expose Zionism as completely different from Judaism. However what I have never heard from them or people like you is an explanation on the Talmud. Judging by what is clearly written in the Talmud regarding the non-Jews how exactly is Zionism so different from Judaism? Judaism teaches that non-Jews are like animals that can be robbed, exploited, or killed, so how’s that so different from what Zionists are doing?

John

They have been here a while. They don’t know the events as they are unfolding and spew nonsense regarding the histories that they put forth. Plus, ever notice that thousands read the articles here and very few comment? :P It would be much better if the energy and resources were spent actually making the world a better place, instead of putting fuel on the fires. On the flip side, it is a sign that changes have begun. Laters BL.

Robert Duran

I have noticed that too..My advice to everyone is to just block them

FlorianGeyer

The established supply route for the US to supply her terrorists was from Turkey and I doubtthat route will be open now, so the alternative for the US is to airlift supplies into the Northern Kurdish canton . However those flights will limit the tonnage and be vulnerable to Turkish, Syrian and Russian air defences.

dutchnational

The US is most unwise to support islamists of any kind. At some time, they always bite the hand that fed them.

Better is to support SDF with artillery, ATG, manpads, tanks. Stuff the SDF so full with arms that they will be left alone.

RichardD

Spoken like a true Jew pedophile rape cult supporter trying to Israelistan up and running.

Alex

SDF are moslims, if you didn’t knew that,lol.
Better to stay away from other countries, that way you won’t be bitten.

Solomon Krupacek

are you alex black?

Alex

I’m not black and not alex black and not black alex, just alex

Solomon Krupacek

ok, thanks.

dutchnational

I said specifically islamists. I do not have any problems with muslims in general as long as they are sucular in public.

Alex

Well, it seems that islamist got a new meaning now http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Islamist

Solomon Krupacek

“Better is to support SDF with artillery, ATG, manpads, tanks.”

100% agree with you. But with 1 little upgrade: little red button of the bottom of each weapon. :))

These actions by the racist supremacist Jewish global slave empire are yet more proof that Erdogan and Turkey are turning against racist supremacist Jews, and their Al Qaeda, ISIS and American slave armies in Syria.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbbG02LB7g0comment image

matt

heil erdogan!!!

John Brown

Part 1
Erdogan is guilty of going along originally with the racist supremacist Jewish global slave empire, but anyone can be forgiven their sins if they repent and take actions to prove it even you, like Erdogan now helping to destroy Israeli ISIS and Al Qaeda. However in your religion with your lord Satan anyone who turns is destroyed There are good Jews that is where I get most of my best info from. I make sure to qualify my statements as applying only to racist supremacist genocidal Jews like you, as it is impossible for all Jews to be racist supremacists like you are. You try to pretend to be for humanity etc but you are clearly just a racist supremacist genocidal Jew. Why can’t you condemn right now on this board the racist DNA tests Israel has to become a citizen as wrong racist and a genocidal hate crime???? Why can’t you condemn right now on this board their sterilizing of blacks going on right now as wrong racist and a genocidal hate crime? Why can’t you condemn right now on this board their throwing black blood donations into the garbage as wrong racist and a genocidal hate crime??? . Why can’t you condemn right now on this board their slaughter of 65 million innocent Goyims in the Soviet Union as wrong racist and a genocidal hate crime and a crime against humanity? Why can’t you condemn right now on this board their enslavement and murder of tens of millions of Africans in the North American slave trade in the Americas as wrong racist and a genocidal hate crime and a crime against humanity? Because to you Goyims are inferior, lower then animals; compared to you, the master, racist, supremacist, chosen, superior, Jewish, race.

matt

what makes you think i have anything to do with judaism or zionism? i never supported or defended it, so WHY?

RichardD

You wrote the same lies to me and then started using the Jew pedophile rape cult flag as your avatar. You’re a complete head case.

PZIVJ

GO RICHARD GO
You seem to love fake news and lies :DDDDD

RichardD

You’re another lying two faced ziotroll who can’t support their disinfo with proof.

John Brown

Part 2 No Matt that is your racist supremacist genocidal Jewish slaver world view where you will never remember the victims of shoas inflicted upon the innocent Goyims by racist supremacist genocidal Jews. You will never admit Israel should pay reparations to Russia and the former Soviet Republics for Jews killing 65 million innocent Goyims there. When will you also say racist supremacist world Jewry and Israel should pay reparations to Africans and blacks for the Jewish slave trading and owning of blacks in the Americas?? Oh that is right you will never say this because you are the superior master race, so if you the master race break a fingernail you get hundreds of billions but if you the master race murders and enslaves hundreds of millions of Goyims its ok because Goyims are inferior lower then animals compared to you, the master racist supremacist Jewish race.

John Brown

Part 3 All the arguments you make are the same ones holocaust deniers make which makes you a shoa holocaust denier as well. But I must say most of them don’t completely deny Jews died / were killed by Nazis in World War 2, they just dispute how many. You completely deny that racist supremacist genocidal Jews have committed multiple shoas, holocausts against Goyims at all, making you the king of the haters! I think it is always wrong and racist to kill innocent people especially when this is d. No Matt that is your racist supremacist genocidal Jewish slaver world view where you will never remember the victims of shoas inflicted upon the innocent Goyims by racist supremacist genocidal Jews. You will never admit Israel and rasicts spuermct genocidal jews should pay reparations to Russia and the former Soviet Republics for Jews killing 65 million innocent Goyims there. When will you also say racist supremacist world Jewry and Israel should pay reparations to Africans and blacks for the Jewish slave trading and owning of blacks in the Americas?? Oh that is right you will never say this because you are the superior master race, so if you the master race break a fingernail you get hundreds of billions but if you the master race murders and enslaves hundreds of millions of Goyims its ok because Goyims are inferior lower then animals compared to you, the master racist supremacist Jewish race.

matt

you are pathetic

John Brown

It entered into an extensive trading network established by Jewish merchants outlined in this diagram.

CONFESSIONS OF A JEWISH RACIST DR HAROLD BRACKMAN
AUGUST 11, 2016 NOI RESEARCH ARTICLES 0
http://NOIRG.ORG/ARTICLES/CONFESSIONS-OF-A-JEWISH-RACIST-DR-HAROLD-BRACKMAN/
Confessions of Harold Brackman
_______________________________________
Harold Brackman is one of those “historians” who has been lead flak for the Jewish disinformation campaign so aptly described by Dr. Tony Martin in The Jewish Onslaught. Brackman practices Black history revisionism for the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
________________________________________
Brackman Secret Treatise
Harold Brackman, the embattled Wiesenthal Center hireling, was contracted to produce a “scholarship”-to-order response to The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews. He has produced a pamphlet allegedly to “refute” the now irrefutably documented fact that Jews were heavily involved in the Black slave trade. Unbeknownst to his Jewish bosses, Brackman received his Ph.D. from the University of California on the basis of a dissertation he wrote entitled, The Ebb and Flow of Conflict: The History of Black-Jewish Relations Through 1900. Brackman’s 632-page document casually presents the same material of Jewish slave dealing which he is now employed to refute. A red-faced Brackman now must face what is firmly fixed on paper in his own name. Discussing the Jewish invention of the profoundly racist Hamitic Myth, Brackman wrote:comment image

Kira Binkley

Huh?

John Brown

Part 2
“There is no denying that the Babylonian Talmud was the first source to read a Negrophobic content into the episode by stressing Canaan’s fraternal connection with Cush.”
The Jewish scholars, he said, advanced two explanations for Ham and his children being turned black. According to Brackman,
“The more important version of the myth, however, ingeniously ties in the origins of blackness – and of other, real and imagined Negroid traits – with Noah’s Curse itself. According to it, Ham is told by his outraged father that, because you have abused me in the darkness of the night, your children shall be born black and ugly; because you have twisted your head to cause me embarrassment, they shall have kinky hair and red eyes; because your lips jested at my exposure, theirs shall swell; and because you neglected my nakedness, they shall go naked with their shamefully elongated male members exposed for all to see…”
When Brackman’s astounding admission was published in The Jewish Onslaught: Despatches from the Wellesley Battlefront, by Wellesley professor Tony Martin, Brackman recoiled and actually pulled his “refutation” pamphlet off the market. Then, in the only known instance of a White Jew bowing to a Black Jew in a matter of Jewish Talmudic history, Brackman denied his initial testimony (“There is no denying…”), and found a Black Jew to claim it is all false.

John Brown

Part 3 Even Jews are embarrassed by the Brackman harangue which found its way into every Barnes & Noble even as they refuse to sell The Secret Relationship. Lenni Brenner, author of Jews in America Today, titled his review in the Amsterdam News, “Harold Brackman believes in recycling garbage,” and opened with this: “There are some books so bad that I have to apologize for reviewing them. [Brackman’s “book”] is one of them.”
Brackman is the front man for the Jewish position of denial in the battle against the most controversial book in America, The Secret Relationship Between Black and Jews.
_______________________________________
Read CAREFULLY the incredible confessions of Dr. Harold Brackman as he reveals the role his people played in the destruction of Black civilization:
Brackman, Harold David, The Ebb and Flow of Conflict: A History of Black-Jewish Relations Through 1900 (Los Angeles: University of California, 1977)
Jews and Black slavery:
p. 6 “For the American Jews, too, the twentieth-century encounter with Blacks grew out of long past roots which, however, remain very alive with contemporary implications. The Jews who struck land in the Netherlands in 1654 found black slaves to greet them. But their introduction to the peculiar institution long preceded the greetings. They had owned slaves –black slaves — in Brazil, and their ancestors had lived for a thousand years in the Iberian countries where slavery had been a thriving concern during the middle ages and where Africans from South of the Sahara were not the unknown quantity they were in Northern Europe. Moreover, they were heirs of a distinctive Jewish law of slavery that continued to develop in its own right and shape underlying attitudes up through the Karo-Isserles Code of the sixteenth century and also a distinctive Jewish lore of race relations with its own special mix of unflattering allusions to the color and character of dark-skinned Africans. The dramatic fault lines of change that run through the subsequent three hundred years make problematical the continuing hold of age-old traditions on immigrant Jewish attitudes….”

John Brown

Part 4 Jews and Medievel Slavery
p. 45 “Despite its relatively short duration, however, the medieval era of Jewish slave-trading prominence left a deep and enduring imprint on the rabbinic slave law. In order to accommodate the activities of the Jewish slave merchants, the geonim of the early medieval period and the rabbis of the middle ages properly nullified the talmudic provisions requiring the purchaser of a heathen slave to symbolically incorporate him within the Jewish fold and not to resell him to a Gentile. Since these key provisions formed cornerstones of the earlier Jewish slave law, the whole structure of protections built into it over the course of the preceding two millenia was grievously undermined.”
pp. 47-48 “Yet just because Old World Jewish slaveholders, especially in the Iberian countries, continued to own significant numbers of household slaves but few industrial or agricultural workers, this radical departure from the talmudic slave legislation — which, of course, had been primarily designed to reduce the dangers inherent in domestic servitude — was slow to win general acceptance. The thirteenth century, however, commenced a process of gradual acceptance that culminated three centuries later in its adoption as authoritative by the Karo-Isserles Codes.”
Slavery Permitted in Jewish Law
p. 46 “Two legal fictions were evolved which legitimated slave trading without openly repudiating precedent. The first of these actually seized on a provision of the talmudic slave law itself. For in ruling out forced circumcision, the Sages had declared that, under certain circumstances, a master could purchase a heathen bondsman, retain him for up to a year in hopes of gaining his consent to the operation, but then resell him outside the Jewish fold if such consent
