White House (April 4) – Statement from President Donald J. Trump

Today’s chemical attack in Syria against innocent people, including women and children, is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world. These heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution. President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a “red line” against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing. The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable attack.

Wayne Madsen ReportApril 3-4, 2017 — Israel’s secret role in Wahhabist-waged war in Yemen

The recent disclosure that Israeli and United Arab Emirates pilots are jointly training in the annual Iniohos 2017 military exercise in Greece has pointed out the open secret that the Israelis and UAE maintain close military and intelligence relations. This “secret” relationship is as open as those between Israel and the Wahhabist royalist regimes of Bahrain, Kuwait, and Qatar.

One secret that is not as well known is the role that Israeli Jewish commandos of Yemeni descent who are active in their native country on behalf of the Sunni coalition that is waging a bloody genocidal war against the forces of the former president of Yemen, Ali Abdullah Saleh and his Houthi allies. The Israeli commandos, according to a top Mossad source, blend in well with the Yemeni population, owing to the Israelis’ fluency in the Yemeni dialect of Arabic and familiarity with Yemeni culture. Most of Yemen’s large Jewish population of 50,000 were transported from Yemen to Israel in Operation Magic Carpet, which lasted from 1949 to 1950. Last year, Israeli commandos covertly spirited 19 Jews out of Yemen to Israel. The clandestine operation had the cooperation of the Saudis and Emiratis, who had imposed a naval and air blockade of Yemen.

Fifty Yemeni Jews continue to live in Sana’a, the Yemeni capital, where they are protected by the Houthi-run government.

The Houthis, a tribe of Zaidi Muslims — a branch of Shi’a Islam — are backed by Iran. In the Middle East, where the familiar refrain is “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” the Sunni/Wahhabi battle lines with the Shi’as have placed the Israelis and the royalist regimes of the Arabian peninsula on the same side.

The Israeli security company, Asia Global Technology (AGT) International, which is owned by Mati Kochavi, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen, has reportedly cornered the security market in Abu Dhabi, the UAE capital and one of the seven emirates that makes up the UAE federation. The Israeli firm has a contract with Abu Dhabi to protect the critical infrastructure in the emirate. The emirate-wide surveillance system is known as Falcon Eye.

Meanwhile, Abu Dhabi plays host to Reflex Responses (R2), a foreign mercenary firm that primarily employs ex-Colombian military and paramilitary personnel, and is headquartered at the Zayed Military City. R2 was founded by Erik Prince, the former U.S. Navy SEAL who founded Blackwater USA. Prince’s sister is Betsy DeVos, the Secretary of Education in the Trump administration. AGT and R2 are believed to be partners in the security sector in the UAE and in countries like Yemen, Somaliland, Eritrea, and Djibouti where UAE forces are active in countering Iranian influence. Somaliland, a self-declared republic that was formerly British Somaliland, recently gave the UAE the rights to establish a naval base at the port of Berbera. Israeli doctors have, according to some reports, been dispatched to the Eritrean port of Assab to treat Emirati soldiers wounded in battle in Yemen…

Meanwhile, a slow moving chain of revelations has been underway, such that, had it been allowed of its own accord to reach its natural conclusion, may have well unraveled the “deep state”. This may be precisely why the deep state, “shadow government,” “cryptocracy” (however one prefers to characterize it), has through the Military-Industrial Complex resorted to the “kinetic action” it is now pursuing. It is a tortoise vs. hare dynamic. The tortoise may in the end prove victorious, but it will prove a Pyrrhic victory if the hare has already scorched the Earth…
