RT – Israeli-made air-to-air missile may have downed MH17 – report
There are four air-to-air missiles that fit the description established by the experts, namely: French Magis-2, Israeli Shafrir, American AIM-9 and Israeli Python – all short-range.
The first three have been struck off the list for various reasons, including type of warhead or guidance system specifications. The Python deserved a closer look.
The Python is equipped with a matrix-imaging IR seeker. It enables a relatively moderate power warhead to effectively engage big aircrafts. The warhead is armed with a set of ready strike elements. Even more importantly, some open military sources suggest that in early 2000s a number of Sukhoi Su-25 assault fighter jets we refurbished to use fourth and fifth generation Python missiles, which look very similar to the Su-25’s standard air-to-air R-60 missile.

This is another plane, I think. It’s the fighter.
Commander: There, part of engine.
Other: Yes, I think.
Cmdr: Yes, it’s the Sukhoi…
Cmdr: They say the Sukhoi (Fighter) brought down the civilian plane and ours brought down the fighter.

Should we be wishing Andrea Merkel happy birthday? Now would be the time to revisit a certain rumor, from…
Last Trumpet Newsletter (August 2007) – The Rising of the New European Reich!
Angela Merkel was born in the D.D.R., the Communist portion of Germany in 1954. Her biography says she was born on July 17, 1954, and that she is the daughter of a Lutheran minister from an East German-controlled church. Recently, however, Soviet KJB archive files reveal an entirely different story. Stasi GDR files indicate that she was born on April 20th, 1954, and details of her birth were included in the records of the German Dr. Karl Klauberg, who was one of the Nazi “death doctors” convicted by Soviet courts and imprisoned. When he later was recognized as a brilliant scientist, he was released after seven years and was recognized as the father of artificial insemination. The Soviets were even more intrigued when they discovered Dr. Klauberg had preserved frozen samples of the sperm of Adolf Hitler. The forces of darkness in high places decided to try to produce a child from Hitler’s sperm, obviously for occult and illuministic purposes. Dr. Klauberg then brought the youngest sister of Eva Braun (Hitler’s wife), whose name was Gretl, to Eastern Germany, and the result of the experiment produced not a biological son of Hitler, but rather a daughter. Amazingly, Adolf Hitler was born on April 20th, 1889, and Angela Merkel was born on April 20th, 1954…

WCVB (Boston) – Christopher Cramer found dead in Saudi Arabia
The body of Christopher Cramer, of Milford, New Hampshire, was found beneath the third-floor balcony of the Sahara Makarim Hotel in Tabuk on Jan. 15. He was working for Merrimack-based Kollsman Inc. to help the Saudis with thermal optical devices, part of the country’s missile systems.
Family and friends said just before he died, the 50-year-old Cramer sent a text message to his roommate in Milford saying he thought something bad was going to happen and asking him to contact the State Department.

Haaretz – Netanyahu lost his Iran bet, but his next gamble may be disastrous
Netanyahu’s spokespeople said he plans to “kill himself” pursuing the last remaining option for scuttling the deal – preventing its ratification by the U.S. House of Representatives – by persuading Democratic congressmen to defect to the Republican camp and vote against their president. The destruction and devastation he avoided inflicting on the nuclear facilities scattered throughout Iran, he now wants to wreck on what’s left of U.S.-Israel relations. Here we again see his compulsive gambler syndrome: After losing his pants, he’s now putting his underwear on the roulette wheel in a move that experts on American politics say hasn’t much of a chance.

Wayne Madsen Report – U.S. intelligence “outsources” cyber-snooping to Israeli-linked firm
As a result of counter-hacking by a “white hat” team of computer hackers, a Milan-based firm, Hacking Team, has been revealed as providing sophisticated hacking tools to the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and intelligence and law enforcement agencies around the world, including Australia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, India, Panama, and dozens of other countries. Colombia’s security agencies actually bought Hacking Team software with funds provided by the DEA. Leaked Hacking Team documents also point to the firm’s software being used to target the computer systems of ABI, Ltd. (Antigua and Barbuda), Barclays, ING Direct, Deutsche Bank, and ABN Amro. Hacking Team also targeted the computers of Human Rights Watch and Privacy International (PI)…
The presence of Hacking Team’s U.S. office at 1997 Annapolis Exchange Parkway, Suite 300, in Annapolis, Maryland also suggests that the National Security Agency and its U.S. Cyber Command operation, located nearby in Fort Meade, Maryland, also used the hacking firm’s products. In addition to its headquarters on Via della Moscova in Milan, Hacking Team maintains an office at UOB Plaza 1, 80 Raffles Place Level 35-25, in Singapore. In addition, there are reports that the Central Intelligence Agency was also an avid fan of Hacking Team’s cyber-snooping software.
Hacking Team is also connected to Israeli intelligence. Its corporate partner, Nice Systems, Ltd., an Israeli software services firm located at 8 Hapnina Street, Raanana, Israel, was connected to some of the Israeli “art students” rounded up by U.S. law enforcement after they were found casing U.S. government facilities and private homes and offices in the months leading up to the 9/11 attack. Nice Systems employees arrested included Tomer Ben Dor (date of birth, 8/24/1975), a former Israeli Defense Force officer, and Michael Calmanovic (date of birth, 9/06/1975), the leader of the Israeli team operating out of Irving, Texas, close to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The Irving team not only included employees of Nice Systems but also the telecommunications billing software firm AMDOCS. Calmanovic rented a mail drop at 3575 Beltline Road in Irving, just a few blocks from the 4045 Beltline Road residence of Almad Khafefa, one of the Saudi suspects in the 9/11 attack…
Why the secrecy over the classified 28 pages from the 9/11 report?
WMR has obtained a list of organizations that were investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and were on the National Security Agency’s watch list for suspicious money transfers and transactions relating to the 9/11 attacks. The 28-pages remain classified because the Central Intelligence Agency had assigned case officers and “NOCs” — non-official cover clandestine agents — to work with officials and employees of many of the organizations on the list. It is the CIA that has objected to the 28-pages being made public because of its involvement with many of the businesses and groups prior to and after 9/11.
The following banks are on the list:
Al Baraka Investments and Development Corporation
Al Barakaat Exchange LLC
Al Rajhi Banking and Investment
Al Shamal Islamic Bank
Dar al Maal al Islami
Dubai Islamic Bank
Faisal Islamic Bank
National Commerce Bank
Shamil Islamic Bank
Tadamon Islamic Bank
The list also includes the following Islamic charities:
Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation, Inc.
Benevolence International Foundation
International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO)
Muslim World League
Rabita Trust for the Rehabilitation of Stranded Pakistanis
Sanabel al Kheer, Inc.
Wafa Humanitarian Organization
World Assembly of Muslim Youth
The following Saudi officials are on the list:
Turki al Faisal al Saud (the former chief of Saudi intelligence and ambassador to the U.S. and U.K.)
Mohammed bin Faisal al Saud (chairman of the board of the King Faisal Foundation)
Sultan bin Abdul Aziz al Saud (late Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia)
The following companies are on the list:
Africa Muslims Agency
Akida Bank Private, Ltd.
Akida Investment Co., Ltd.
Global Relief Foundation
Gulf Center SRL
Heritage Education Trust (Ashburn, Virginia)
International Institute of Islamic Thought
International Islamic Relief Organization
Mar-Jac Investments, Inc.
Mar-Jac Poultry, Inc.

Nasco Nasreddin Holding AS
Reston Investments, Inc.
Saudi Bin Laden Group
Sterling Charitable Gift Fund
Sterling Management Group, Inc.
Success Foundation, Inc.
Taibah International Aid Association
Release of the 28 pages has also been stymied by certain proactive congressional members of the Israel Lobby. The reason for that may be explained by the presence on the list of suspicious elements that were involved in supplying airport concessions on 9/11. Many of the supplied concessions are located within the secure parts of airports, including Newark and Dulles International Airports, where two of the four hijacked planes had originated on 9/11. The security applied to airport concessionaires was managed by aviation security companies with links to Israel. One such company, ICTS International, managed the security of Newark and Boston Logan airports on 9/11. As one official who read the 28 pages told WMR on deep background, the embarrassing links to Israel are contained in the footnotes found within the 28 pages.
