The Liberation of Palmyra.

Civilisation triumphs over the forces of nihilism, chaos and destruction.

The US Air force stood, watched and did nothing in May 2015 as the city of Palmyra fell to  ISIS.

Ten months later and Russia has emerged as the defender of civilisation in Syria and nothing makes this clearer than the liberation of Palmyra.

While the US was perfectly happy to stand back and watch Syria being looted and pillaged by the forces of chaos and mayhem, Russia sent her soldiers  to fight and die in the fight against them and they have succeeded.

It was an extremely difficult and costly operation and only a week ago ISIS appeared to have the upper hand in the fighting around Palmyra the short video below shows a Russian journalist embedded with the Syrian Army under a hail of fire, pinned down and trapped as ISIS fighters rain accurate fire down on the Syrians from an elevated position. The trapped soldiers had to wait for nightfall to be able to move.

The Battle of Palmyra: The Syrian assault on ISIS inside the city

While ISIS clearly made a tactical decision to withdraw from Palmyra and Tadmur this week, the group are still present in the area, still well armed and still capable of mounting successful small-scale attacks.

The Western “Response.”

Reporting on the liberation of Palmyra, the BBC World Service were reduced to offering the pitiful “many blame the Syrian Government for allowing the city to fall.”

It is worth remembering that fewer than two years ago the Western elite and their pet media were trying to present the Russian President, with a straight face, as the new Hitler.

This now laughable idea was actually a very popular meme throughout 2014 being voiced by Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton, the British Prime Minister and the next in line to the British throne, among many others.

The hollow men and woman of the Western media supported these fallacious pronouncements as they do everything, with mindless enthusiasm and transparent sophistry.

The southern outpost of the Mighty Wurlitzer took to the task with shameless relish.

Hillary Clinton’s comparison of Vladimir Putin and Adolf Hitler checks out – Fact Check – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

So these latest developments are another self-inflicted moment of acute humiliation for the self appointed masters of the universe.

In this light the muted, sulking and whining response to the Russian operation in Syria and the Palmyra triumph make perfect sense.

The past two years have been among other things one long festival of humiliation for the Neoconservative Western elite, much of it at the hands of the Russian President. This must be a difficult moment for them.

In the Daily Beast they were still droning and whining about moderate rebels, in an unintentionally comedic piece written in the parallel universe of the Western propagandist where al Qaeda are moderate democrats!

Putin and Assad Score a Major Victory Against ISIS, After Hitting Syrian Rebels for Months – The Daily Beast

To describe the al Nusra Front are a terror group is a simple statement of fact. This is their legal status as designated by the UN along with their parent organisation al Qaeda.

al Nusra front deserve the designation having conducted terror attacks that target civilians in both Syria and Lebanon where the “plucky moderates” sent a suicide bomber to commit murder in a Tripoli cafe in late 2014.

Nusra Front claims Lebanon suicide attack – Al Jazeera English

They have massacred numerous groups from whom they differ including Shia, Christian and Druze. They have desecrated Christian churches, they have conducted chemical weapons attacks against both military and civilian targets. The only meaningful ideological difference they have with ISIS is that they believe in building an Islamic State in Syria after the war ISIS have tried and failed to do so during the war.

Any “journalist” who attempts to portray the Syrian opposition other than ISIS as being moderate is either a brazen liar and fraudster or simply a tool who deserves to the same contempt they have for their audience.

Al Nusra are the pivot group of the entire Syrian insurgency, throughout the war they have been allied with militant factions across the board and were the core and spearhead of the Army of Conquest coalition that swept through north-western Syria in 2015 seizing the province of Idlib.  Jabhat al Nusra have maintained alliances with the supposed moderates of the Free Syrian Army throughout the entire war.

The Road Ahead.

The Syrian Army are in the process of de-mining Palmyra, removing the hundreds of bombs and booby traps placed by the guerrillas, other units have fanned out in several directions and although clashes continue in the Palmyra area it is expected that the Syrian Army and their allies will soon  begin to move further north-east as they follow the M7 highway towards Der ez Zour.

Der ez Zour is 200kms away through a desert of sparse villages. If ISIS choose to mount guerrilla raids on the advancing forces it may take them months to advance across the desert.

On the other hand if the group withdraw the Syrian Army could be fighting to break the siege of Der ez Zour within weeks. If recent history is any guide it will be many months.

Palmyra victory has Syrian Army set to break ISIS siege on Deir Ezzor

If the Syrian Army manage to cross the desert and link up with the forces besieged in Der ez Zour, the current episode of the Caliphate project will be over. The forces in Syria will be reduced to operating in small isolated pockets of territory.

Amidst the deafening silence, the obfuscation and barefaced lies, Robert Fisk of the Independent stood out as one Western journalist willing to state the truth about Palmyra and the West.

Why is David Cameron so silent on the recapture of Palmyra from the clutches of Isis?

“So in the end, it was the Syrian army and its Hezbollah chums from Lebanon and the Iranians and the Russians who drove the Isis murderers out of Palmyra, and who may – heavens preserve us from such a success – even storm the Isis Syrian ‘capital’ of Raqqa. I have written many times that the Syrian army will decide the future of Syria. If they grab back Raqqa – and Deir el-Zour, where the Nusrah front destroyed the church of the Armenian genocide and threw the bones of the long-dead 1915 Christian victims into the streets – I promise you we will be silent again.”

The Real War Against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

Terrorist Massacre in Iraq.

On March 26th the ceremony following a children’s soccer match was attacked by a seventeen year old ISIS suicide bomber named Saifullah al Ansar. The attack left 41 people dead and scores wounded.

The videos below depicts the attack on al Asirya village near the town of Iskandariya,* located around 50kms south of the Iraqi capital.

These videos do not show any of the carnage caused by the attack, merely people’s reaction to what has happened, as well as showing the moment of the blast.

There is a stark contrast between the unmistakable terror and horror as people respond to this event compared to the Brussels aftermath despite the fact that the people of Iraq are far more accustomed to acts of extreme violence having experienced four major wars over recent decades along with an ultra-violent insurgency now in its thirteenth year.

Iraq: At least 29 killed in suicide bomb attack at football match

 ISIS Suicide Bomber in Iraq Kills Dozens at Soccer Game ,Most of the crowd were young people

As ISIS begin to collapse as a conventional army able to stand and fight, the tactics change from fighting battles to low terrorist attacks such as the one at Iskandariya.

The only purpose is to show that they can still cause heavy casualties and suffering despite being defeated on the battlefield.

These attacks are impotent acts of rage and bitterness that show that ISIS is in the early stages of battlefield collapse in both Syria and Iraq.

The suicide truck bombs so central to their success have now become overwhelmingly ineffective. The bombers rarely reach their targets as the Iraqi and Syrian military have become competent in destroying the vehicles with rockets and heavy weapons as they travel towards them.

Every week numerous failed suicide car and truck bomb attacks are filmed and posted on the Internet, the Youtube channel Stahlgewitter Syrien specialises in videos of these successfully foiled attacks. These are two recent examples.

Russia did not leave Syria.

The story Russia put out that it was pulling out f Syria has turned out to have been something of an exaggeration. Around a quarter of the around 100 Russian Aircraft stationed at the peak remain in Syria and in addition Russian Special Forces are in action on the ground.

A member of the Russian Special Forces and possibly more, recently died in the fighting against ISIS near the central Syrian city of Palmyra. The group claimed to have killed five Russian soldiers and this may well be true. It is certain that at least one Russian died as the group were able to photograph the body and loot the soldier’s impressive array of equipment which they video recorded.

The Liberation of Palmyra.

The Islamic State group seized Palmyra in May 2015 and the Syrian Army have been conducting an operation to free the city from the clutches of the puppet psychopaths of ISIS for several months now with mixed results.

It is now being reported that the Syrian Military and their allies have liberated Palmyra and the adjacent town Tadmur. If so this will be an immense symbolic victory and makes it completely impossible for Neoconservatives (and their media) to claim that Syria and Russia are not fighting ISIS as they have been trying to pretend until recently.

The magnificence of the Palmyra ruins and the depravity and destruction ISIS have wrought upon the city combine to end all doubt as to the identity of the real enemy of civilisation in the middle east and it is not the government of Syria.

One sure sign that the US had completely given up on the dream of regime change in Syria was the fact that CNN sent a reporter weeks ago to report on the Battle for Palmyra from the point of view of the Syrian Army.

Heavy Russian and US Airstrikes Blast Mosul and Raqqa.

On March 19th Russia launched an intense overnight bombardment of the town of Raqqa.  All of the casualty numbers are estimates but it was reported that 60 people died in the strikes and that thirteen civilians were among the dead. The casualty numbers are often distorted due to the fact that most militant factions will cover up their own casualties and accentuate civilian casualties instead for obvious reasons.

A day later the US launched a tremendous bombardment of Mosul, the ISIS capital. Limited media reports stated that at least 25 civilians and an unknown number of ISIS fighters died in the attacks.

Scores of Civilians Killed in US-Led Air Strikes on Mosul

Neither the Russian or US attacks received high media attention as the violent deaths of middle eastern civilians are not deemed newsworthy in the West unless required for specific propaganda purposes.

Listening to the Republican candidates debate whether or not Raqqa should be struck with nuclear weapons it is impossible to avoid the conclusion that many Westerners have completely lost their conception of humanity after more than a decade of permanent war.

It is laughable the way that the US political class still pretends that the effort against ISIS is ineffectual as the group are on the brink of military collapse but to say so would reduce the rationale for the desired Western invasion of Syria.

For Cruz to muse about “glowing radioactive sand” shows he is a depraved and unprincipled opportunist and it is breathtaking to imagine a culture where an individual prances around with his chest out about what a devout Christian he is while musing about using nuclear weapons against civilians, a satanic idea on every level.

Human beings of any quality, human beings who deserve the appellation do not engage in these behaviours, let alone true Christians.

If people cannot see the clear difference between the Brussels event and the real victims of violence depicted on this page they should have another look, it is pretty obvious.

The Plight of Refik Tekin and the Turkey’s Descent into Tyranny.

The footage of civilians coming under fire in Cizre, Turkey was photographed by a man named Refik Tekin, a cameraman and photographer  for the national Turkish television network IMC news. Refik Tekin survived the gunshot wound to the leg he received in the incident that left at least two dead and ten wounded and is recovering in Mardin State Hospital.

Police Judge, Rule on Journalist Refik Tekin

“the order submitted by Şırnak Provincial Security Directorate has instructed to keep Tekin under surveillance during his stay at the hospital and to take him into custody and have his testimony after being released from the hospital.”

“Both the documents prepared by Chief Prosecutor M. Sait Köseoğlu and Şırnak Provincial Security Department use the expression “separatist terrorist organization member” concerning journalist Refik Tekin.”

So having shot and wounded him after opening fire on a non-violent group of people the Turkish authorities are seeking to claim that they were attacking the PKK and therefore Refik Tekin must be a member. It is transparent nonsense but sadly typical of Turkey under late era Erdogan who shows clear signs of delusion.

Rafik Tehin had previously earned the ire of the Turkish ruling party having photographed ISIL/Daesh fighters openly crossing the Turkey/Syria border unimpeded by Turkish officials.

Journalists, Academics and Lawyers targeted by Erdogan regime.

The decision to portray Refik Tekin as a member of the PKK is mirrored by the widespread attempt to intimidate any who would criticise the futile South Eastern operation against the PKK, or mention issues of political corruption. Saying anything that contradicts the official fiction of the Turkish state is enough to warrant dismissal or arrest.

At the most moderate level journalists are sacked for speaking on the subject of Government corruption, a mention of the term shoebox is sufficient to qualify, and any criticism of the Government, even delivered second hand, are grounds for immediate dismissal.

Brutish authoritarianism is being exercised against opponents of the policies of the Turkish Government and corruption whistleblowers. Sibel Edmonds has pointed out that these policies in Turkey are not unique to the current Government and also that Western Intelligence has several hand picked replacements waiting in the wings.

These details do not change the fact that the conduct of the AKP Government has severely damaged Turkey domestically and internationally and the level of tyranny is completely unacceptable in any era.

Ergogan is a demagogue waving the flag of Islam for convenience. Erdogan is an organised crime figure first and foremost and no more a Muslim than the Skull and Bones member with (alleged) large interests in the international drug trade George H.W Bush was a Christian.

Where will it end?

The Civil War has been cynically restarted in Turkey due to anxieties about Kurdish gains in Iraq and Syria, the relationship with Russia has been completely trashed for the same broad reason, out of frustration at the failures of the Syria regime change effort, one almost forgotten fact at this point is that Turkey and Russia were close enough that Turkey agreed to allow Russia to build and operate Turkey’s first nuclear reactor.

Yesterday Turkey complained that a Russian SU34 fighter jet had entered Turkish airspace. Today video has emerged that is claimed to depict the Turkish military firing artillery from Turkey against Syrian Russian troops in Latakia, where the Turkish backed insurgents are facing complete defeat. It seems absurd that the Turkish military would fight a war with Russia in order to somehow save the failing Syrian regime change operation, but stranger things have happened.

Black Friday Massacre: What Really Happened in Paris?

The aftermath of the Bataclan Concert Hall massacrewas clearly a crudely staged scene.
The aftermath of the Bataclan Concert Hall massacrewas clearly a crudely staged scene.

Updated March 25th, 2016.

A Brief Apology.

In the several months since this piece was written it has become clear that the hypothesis presented here-of a false flag terror attack- is incorrect. In fact the Paris events were merely a larger and more complex psyop, just as fake as the Boston bombings, the Woolwich incident and the San Bernardino attack that followed weeks later.

Since the year 2012 almost all of the supposed terror attacks in Western nations are confirmed and proven hoax events. This is the new model.

Gladio was the cold war synthetic terror/ strategy of tension, Gladio B as coined by Sibel Edmonds was similar to the original but with Muslims replacing communists as the enemy.

Gladio C is very similar to Gladio B but instead of false flag terror attacks such as 911, Bali and London 7/7 the events are entirely staged. These are drills enacted filmed and sold to the public as authentic terror attacks.

Whether or not it is tactically intelligent to make the hoax argument when people are likely to be more receptive to a false flag narrative is a completely separate issue. The false flag attack narrative is no longer the truth and those who cling to the false flag narrative and pretend that these events are real, are not telling the truth.

I tried to tell the truth here but came up short for which I apologise.

November 18th, 2015.

Like a Nightmare.

The West sits under a dark cloud of grief, fear , angst and rage in the wake of the series of terror attacks that left at least 129 dead in Paris on Friday the 13th of November.

The French authorities have stated that they intend to extend the twelve day State of Emergency for a further three months and they have bombed the IS capital in Syria Raqqa each of the past two days in an attempt to present the public with a fait a compli about who was responsible for these outrages before they have even determined the facts let alone the perpetrators.

It was completely right that people questioned whether these attacks had even happened given the recent history of manufactured events that have taken place in Ottawa, BostonSydney and in France itself earlier this year and I retain an open mind but this event does not seem to have been a faux incident and I have not seen any good evidence to that effect.

A Perfect Storm of Fear and Division.

These attacks combined with the mass influx of Middle Eastern refugees in recent months create a dangerous confluence in Europe and one of the many stories that has been swept aside in the wake of the Paris atrocity was a large fire in the Calais “jungle” refugee camp on the night of the attacks.

Another lost story was the unexplained train derailment in Strasbourg, France on November 14th that left ten dead and dozens injured.

There was also the  arrest of a French national at Gatwick Airport in London on November 14th where it is alleged a firearm was placed in a bin by the man who was arrested after people noticed him behaving “suspiciously”

Yesterday a friendly football match between the Netherlands and Germany was abandoned and the Hanover stadium was evacuated after a suspicious package was found  and there are rumours that a truck bomb disguised as an ambulance was also found.

Today at least two people died in police raids in the Paris suburb of St. Denis, the usual suspects being framed and liquidated it would seem.

The level of fear in Paris was made clear when hundreds of people panicked and stampeded in the Place de Republique where a crowd had gathered to commemorate the dead and persons unknown set off fireworks that were mistaken for gunfire.

Moment crowd bursts into panic run caused by false alarm at Paris attacks memorial

Brief Overview.

The investigation into these events is only at it’s beginning yet a number of startling anomalies have emerged and it has become clear that the version of events presented by the French Government and the controlled media is incorrect in fundamental ways.

The most obvious thing that people are too stunned to assimilate is that at least one and possibly two of the terror cells responsible for the massacre escaped and yet the French Government pretended that all the attackers had been killed until an abandoned Seat Leon containing a number of assault rifles and full and expended magazines was found in the early hours of November 15th.

The initial Wikipedia entry on the attack clarifies that the Paris Prosecutor and the corporate media initially claimed that all the attackers had died on the night.

November 2015 Paris attacks – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 “Eight attackers were killed and authorities are searching for any accomplices that remain at large.”

“Paris Public Prosecutor François Molins confirmed that the eight known attackers were killed, though authorities continued to search for possible accomplice.”

This version was accessed and saved on November 15th, since then the entry has been altered in an apparent attempt to hide the discrepancy as it now reads.

“Paris Public Prosecutor François Molins confirmed that seven known attackers were killed, though authorities continued to search for the restaurant shooters.”

This appears to be a blatant attempt to paper the cracks in the narrative.

Two cars have now been found abandoned in Paris that are believed connected to the attacks.

A Seat Leon was found in the Paris suburb of Montriul in the early hours of Sunday the 15th with several AK47s inside, it also contained five full and eleven empty magazines. (Source)

On November 17th another vehicle apparently connected with the attacks was found in the Eighteenth Arrondissement. The black Renault Clio was rented by a man named Salah Abdeslam.

Renault Clio rented by massacre fugitive Salah Abdeslam is found abandoned in Paris | Daily Mail Online

It has now emerged that French police stopped the vehicle containing this fellow no fewer than three times as the man was driven from Paris back to Belgium where he has inexplicably disappeared after it was widely reported he had been arrested.

A major operation is currently under way in the Moleenbeek district of Brussels with Belgian broadcaster RTL suggesting the 26-year-old was captured alive by Belgian special forces during a raid.He was reportedly seen at a window of an address with his arms up in the air, before police used tear gas to neutralise him.”

and:

“It seems that one individual has been arrested by special forces in that particular part of Belgium using tear gas – throwing it through a roof window, and then seemingly according to reports there, pulling one individual out of an apartment.” Sky News.

Belgian police later stated that no arrests had been made.

These major anomalies in the investigation combined with the passport left on the ground near to the site of one of the attacks is another classic sign that  someone is engaged in framing a group of patsies for these horrific crimes.

A  picture is beginning to emerge of what appears to be a “twin track” highly sophisticated false flag terror attack where a group of patsies are used to mask the crimes of professional killers who are shielded  by corrupt local authorities across several European nations.

Operation Gladio the History of Synthetic and Managed terror in Europe

We know that these operations are in the tradition of the synthetic terror that saw Western intelligence in combination with a dark elite utilise and infiltrate political extremes of left and right during the Cold War in order to promote a “Strategy of Tension” that would see a frightened public turn to the security state for protection.

The Gladio operatives conducted atrocities such as the Bologna bombing and the Brabant killings along with dozens of lesser atrocities, Gladio B is the updated jihadi version of Operation Gladio.

IS/ISIL/ISIS/Daesh are a Western proxy, they are a false flag group, every attack they conduct is therefore a false flag to a lesser or greater extent and this is expressed eloquently here.

While insiders or initiates understand that all these attacks historically have been acts of synthetic terror facilitated and  conducted by black ops cut outs run by Western intelligence agencies and the rogue networks that infiltrate these agencies but outsiders do not understand this so it is incumbent upon us to  attempt to unmask the specific deceptions that have taken place in Paris.

Merely stating that all major world changing terror attacks have been false flags will not convince the credulous without supporting evidence related to these specific events.

The Official Story of the Paris attacks.

Paris Attacks: watch Paris prosecutor full press conference on ongoing investigation

Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins’s press briefing on the Paris terrorist attacks | What The Folly?!

A preliminary version of events has been provided by a French prosecutor Francois Molins who delivered a brief summary of the facts at a press conference on November 14th.

There is no consistent version of what has taken place with varying accounts persistent as to how many people attacked the Bataclan Concert, how many attacks at the Stade de France were suicide attacks and other basic elements of the event.

Given that the Paris prosecutor has made the only substantive statement regarding what has happened from the French Government, his words must stand as the Official account of these events at this time although it is so lacking in detail that media accounts of what has taken place are also reuired in order to construct a coherent timeline of events.

The version of events that Francois Molins related  has proven to be incorrect about fundamental aspects of the event, the most obvious example of this is that the Paris prosecutor claimed that all the attackers had died.

It has since emerged that at least one and possibly two cells involved in these attacks escaped alive and it is now admitted that at least two attackers escaped.

We are told that Salah Abdeslam is one of these men, the other has not been identified.

The French Government has dealt with this situation, the wholesale collapse of the narrative they propagated about the attackers all being dead by issuing anonymous clarifications through friendly media outlets.

This tactic enables them to continue to shape the narrative without the risk of going on the record and revealing their deception and/or incompetence as the Paris prosecutor did in the only official outline of the attacks.

Summary of events.

The best understanding of the event is that there were three teams at least involved in the attacks.

In order to piece together what has happened the operations of each of the attack teams and the various narratives surrounding each will be considered one at a time.

The magical Syrian passport found at the scene of a bomb attack at the Stde de france on November 13th, 2015.
The magical Syrian passport found at the scene of a bomb attack at the Stade de france on November 13th, 2015.

Attack Team 1. Stade de France.

One team attacked the Stade de France in a a largely symbolic series of implausibly ineffective suicide attacks. the attacks at the Stade de France are claimed to have killed only one person beyond the attackers yet this attack was of immense symbolic importance to the overall event and to the subsequent psyop to cash in on it.

This attack team showed extraordinary, inexplicable incompetence, they allowed massive crowds to walk in to the stadium together then conducted three explosions that in total killed only one person other than themselves in an area where 80,000 had walked earlier and would soon return.

The story of the Stade de France attacks is currently undergoing significant revision. There is a dispute as to whether there were two or three suicide attacks or two suicide attacks and one planted bomb with different “official sources” offering differing accounts.

It appears that in total three people died in the three bombings near the Stadium.

The first attack according to the Paris prosecutor, took place at 9.20pm near Gate D, one civilian or security person died along with the bomber.

Mr. Molins stated the bombs were made from the hydrogen peroxide based explosive mixture known as T.A.T.P and the bombers all had hand held buttons to trigger the devices.

Planted Passports.

This attack appeared to provide one of the first strong leads as to the truth behind these attacks after the passports of a Syrian and an Egyptian appeared to have been planted at the scene.

The passport or passports that have been found we are told, on the bodies of the attackers are a straightforward signal that someone is being framed.

Clear as a bell.

“The single most intriguing fact is that the passport was there at all,” one French official source said. “It was not actually on the terrorist’s body, or what remained of it. It was lying nearby, as if meant to be found.” The holder of the passport was named as Ahmed Almuhamed, aged 25. A man of this name entered the European Union on a Syrian passport with 69 other refugees after their boat sank off the Greek island of Leros on 3 October.”

Paris attacks: Ahmed Almuhamed’s passport may have been planted by terrorists | Europe | News | The Independent

Logically there is only one reason to frame people for a crime they did not commit, that being to obscure the guilt of another party. The Paris prosecutor Francois Molins stated clearly that there were three suicide attacks in the stadium  area.

The media are reporting that there were two and a bomb was left at a McDonalds.

There has also been a radical shift in the story regarding the Egyptian passport.

The passport holder is now being reported to be an innocent football fan named  Waleed Abdel-Razzak severely wounded in one of the blasts at the stadium.

The passport of the Syrian found at the scene of one of these blasts remains a powerful pointer to the fact that people are being framed for these attacks and this is a classic marker of a false flag deception that was seen earlier this year in the Charlie Hebdo false flag attack when a masked gunman supposedly left his id card in a getaway car and even more infamously in the wake of the 911 attacks when a passport was supposed to have survived being inside a jet that exploded into a massive fireball only to be found in a pristine condition on a New York street by a member of the US security services.

CCTV.

One small fact that slipped out in the Paris prosecutor’s press conference was that the attackers at the Stade de France were captured on CCTV. It is highly likely that the attackers here were driven to the site by someone else, after all a suicide belt is probably not something that you would want to carry onto public transport unless it is the target.

Someone, such as a handler has driven the bombers to the scene and it is overwhelmingly likely that person or their vehicle were caught on CCTV. At this point no mention has been made about how the Stade de France attack team travelled to the Stadium. If there turns out to be a startling lack of CCTV footage of the attackers on their way to the stadium that will reinforce the justified suspicion that the story of the Stade de france attacks is a crudely constructed concoction.

Attack Team 2.

The Seat Leon Team Escaped!!!

A black Seat Leon was used in a series of shooting attacks in Paris that caused 39 deaths in a series of shootings at restaurants.

The Seat Leon Team team seem to have conducted all of the attacks other than the Bataclan Theater attack and the Stade de France attacks.

This team began with twin attacks on two restaurants Le Ca Rillon and Le Petit Cambodge (Little Cambodia) that are located only metres apart,  the attacks on these two restaurants are reported to have left at least 15 people dead.

The Seat Leon team are then reported to have moved 500 yards to Rue de Fontaine au Roi, where the oddly named La Casa Nostra restaurant was attacked leaving five dead.

The team then moved onto a venue named La Belle Equipe and murdered a further 19 people there.

This team was also possibly responsible for the futile suicide attack on Comptoir Voltaire on Boulevard Voltaire at 9.40pm, after the series of shooting attacks.

The suicide bombing, like those at the Stade de France was completely ineffective, leaving the bomber alone dead.

The Seat Leon team then seemingly drove to Montriul in Eastern Paris and abandoned the car leaving behind the three AK47 assault rifles five magazines and 11 expended magazines.

As many as two attack cells may have escaped as there are indications that at least one member of another cell escaped, after Europe’s now most wanted man Salah Abdeslam was questioned by French police near the Belgian border and released. There were two other people with Salem in the car when he was stopped.

These may well have been the same team who had earlier abandoned the Seat Leon in Montriul, Eastern Paris.

The Seat Leon find was followed on Tuesday with the discovery of a Renault Clio also alleged to have been rented by Salah Abselam. The car was dumped at the site it was found yesterday.

Theposition of the car, parked on a pedestrian crossing meant that it cannot possibly have been sitting at that place in the three or four days since the attacks.

Bataclan Concert Hall.

The Bataclan Concert Hall was the site of more than tow thirds of the fatalities in the massacre, comprising 89 of the 129 people to have died.

A small number of amateur videos depicting the attack in the Bataclan venue have now emerged.

The first ten or twelve seconds show a conventional rock show, a series of pops begin to ring out and the bass player leaves the stage very quickly while the guitarist and drummer seem confused.

It doesn’t prove anything really but it does strongly suggest that the band thought the event was real.

The Moment Terrorists Started Shooting At The Bataclan Music Theatre In Paris Filmed From Inside

There is agreement on the fact that numerous gunmen entered the hall and began massacring the crowd as they watched the Eagles of Death Metal. There are many descriptions of a massacre lasting 10 to 15 minutes beginning at around 9.40pm as people escaped and played dead while the murderers ran amok.

On the night it was widely reported that one of the attackers had been captured alive and stated that he was “From ISIL/IS?ISIS/Daesh.”

This story may have been invented as a way to inject the group into the narrative but I did find some imagery of an apparently wounded mystery man in a mask being led from the Bataclan scene by a seemingly senior police officer.

Bataclan Video depicts gunman in the building next door.

As well as the video from inside the Bataclan Hall as the shooting began a video was released that it was claimed both on YouTube and in the major media showed a confrontation between the attackers and the French police at the Bataclan Concert Hall.

The footage seems to be real from limited analysis but the building seems different from the Bataclan Theater in the photos I accessed.

Further research revealed that the gunmen logically must be inside the building at 52 Boulevarde Voltaire, next door to the Bataclan Theater which is located at number 50, to it’s left across a side-street.

The building houses a Real Estate agent as far as I can tell.

A detailed account of events at the Bataclan Concert Hall has been provided to the French Newspaper Le Monde by police involved in the incident.

The Guardian reprinted the police version of events here.

The entire account is reprinted at the end of this piece.

The police version of events provided to Le Monde and reprinted in the Western media cannot possibly be correct because it claims that the police first entered the Bataclan Theater at 10pm, makes no reference to them coming under fire outside the venue and makes no reference at all to 52 Boulevard Voltaire.

Therefore either the footage was manufactured or the police are lying about what happened at the Bataclan Concert Hall.

This is the second concrete and incontrovertible example of deception and dishonesty in relation to these attacks along with the fact that the Paris prosecutor stated plainly that all the attackers were dead when this was untrue and Francois Molins certainly knew this to be untrue.

The Seat Leon team had not been accounted for, it could not have been a one man cell conducting drive by shootings so there must have been survivors from that cell and there is no rational explanation other than Francois Molins was acting to protect a manufactured, predetermined and deceptive  narrative.

The Drill.

In the days following the Paris attacks a man named Patrick Pelloux, a former Charlie Hebdo writer and an employee of the Paris emergency medical services, SAMU  gave an interview to French Radio during which he mentioned that there had been an emergency services drill on Friday the 13th.

These screenshots contain Pelloux’s words.

Security and emergency drills are a key historical indicator of deception, both of the false flag and hoax variety and this is interesting in it’s own right if not necessarily evidence,

Doctor who treated Paris wounded and Charlie Hebdo victims calls for unity | World news | The Guardian

Patrick Pelloux is certainly a person who has suffered a series of unbelievable coincidences related to these cases and it is more than a little puzzling to discover that not only was Patrick Pelloux

“An emergency doctor who treated the wounded in both January’s Charlie Hebdo attack and Friday night’s massacre.”

but that

“At the time of Friday’s attacks, Pelloux had been promoting his new book, published the day before, in which he attempts to draw a line under the Charlie Hebdo attacks”

So Patrick Pellloux’s book had been published the previous day and at the time of the attacks he was publicising his new book AND participating in a major emergency services drill.

Given the fact that the core narrative collapsed this is secondary stuff but worthy of mention.

The Investigations.

The investigation into these attacks appears to proceed along two tracks.

Group One.

There seems to be one group within the French power structure that are devoted to hiding the truth about the attacks and they are putting their energy into framing a group of patsies that are overwhelmingly located in France.

These people are quite simply the usual suspects being framed in the most cynical and transparent manner imaginable.

Group Two.

On the other hand there also appears to be a group who are actually investigating the crimes and attempting to track the people behind these atrocities which appear to have been used Belgium, the home of NATO headquarters in Europe as an operational and planning base.

One of the key roles of group one is to prevent the second group ever getting a live suspect of any import in custody.

The goal is to present the world with a fait a compli, maintaining the fear and moving on to war with the millions of dead Iraqis and thousands of dead Americans forgotten as the ‘victim status” of the West is instantly rehabilitated.

Conclusions.

There appear to have been two separate attacks in Paris on Friday the 13th, 2015. The attack of the dupes and the attack of the killers. When Francois Molins stood before the people of France and the world and stated that all the attackers were dead and only accomplices were being sought, he cannot possibly have been acting in an honest manner.

The position of the Paris prosecutor  Francois Molins in untenable.

Molins must resign and should face investigation for complicity in these attacks.

Francois Molins lied to the people of France and the world in a way that assisted the members of at least one terror cell to escape.

The only logical explanation of Molins behavior is that he was seeking corruptly to protect a number of the real perpetrators of these attacks with and until the Seat Leon was found in Montriul in the early hours of Sunday the 15th, more than 24 hours after the attacks were over, they were intent on pretending that the perpetrators of the shooting massacres in the Seat Leon were all dead when there was no reasonable explanation to believe this, it was completely absurd.

Moilins could not account for the three attack teams that he himself described without pretending that the Seat Leon attacks, which included drive by shootings, were conducted by only one person.

Paris terror attacks: video confirms involvement of ninth assailant

Francois Molins position is untenable and he must resign immediately and then face criminal investigation for complicity in these attacks.

The evidence is very clear and no amount of “stirring” renditions of Le Marseille  or the works of John Lennon or the bouquets of flowers or the bombs on Raqqa or the tears of the survivors will obscure that unpleasant fact that this was a false flag attack conducted by professionals and the passports are a means to frame some patsies.

No other explanation makes sense.

Leads.

Friday the 13th, like September 11th, October 12th and many of the other dates that have seen major false flag atrocities has immense occult significance.

Friday the 13th attained it’s “black Friday” statys because on Friday the 13th of October 1307 the Knights Templar group were all arrested under the orders of the French King Phillippe.

Knights Templar -Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The legendary death of the Templar leader Jacques De Molay who was burned at the stake took place in March 1314 seven years later.

The cultural movement that the Templars were engaged in was never extinguished and their progeny are understood to have taken their revenge against the French monarchy centuries later by engineering the French Revolution in the 1780s.

Grand Orient de France – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“The Lodge Les Neuf Sœurs was a prominent lodge attached to the Grand Orient de France that was particularly influential in organising French support for the American Revolution and later in the intellectual ferment that preceded the French Revolution.”

The organisational heirs of the Templar tradition in France include the Grand Orient Masonic Lodge.

Therefore, along with NATO and it’s corporate allies in Belgium the signature of the Grand Orient de France seems to be subtly imprinted on this attack.

Aangirfan: PARIS ATTACK LIKE MUMBAI ATTACK, AND GLADIO ATTACKS

“the CIA-NATO’s Operation Gladio terrorism in Italy is linked to the P2 masonic lodge in Italy (which has been linked to Kissinger, the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers)

“P2 had a sister lodge in Paris also linked to Gladio named ‘Le Grand Orient de Paris’.

“The most influential mason now at that lodge is France’s current Prime Minister Manuel Valls.”

“Valls appointed interior minister Cazeneuve who was directly in charge of handling the investigation of Charlie Hebdo, the Belgian train attack.”

“Cazeneuve is known to be a significant high mason as well like Valls who appointed him.

“Cazeneuve and Valls are both known to be extreme zionist Jews who are also high masons tied to the elite establishment.”

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/nov/17/something-from-dantes-hell-harrowing-details-of-bataclan-siege

Fresh details have emerged of the police operation against the terrorists who stormed the Bataclan concert hall in Paris, with one officer likening the scene on the ground floor to “something from Dante’s hell”.
10pm: first police enter Bataclan
According to Le Monde newspaper, the first officer entered the building towards 10pm on Friday. Ten minutes earlier, three gunmen had burst into a rock concert by the US group Eagles of Death Metal and begun shooting people in the main auditorium. The three terrorists were Omar Ismaïl Mostefai, 29, Samy Amimour, 28, and a third man who has not yet been identified.
Footage shows moment shooting starts in Bataclan theatre
The officer immediately came “nose to nose” with one of the terrorists, Le Monde reported. He shot at him and the terrorist’s belt exploded. It was unclear whether the gunman had blown himself up or whether the officer’s bullet ignited the belt.
More police followed. “When we entered it was dark,” a member of the first armed response unit, identified as Jean, told MYTF1 news. “There were dozens of bodies tangled all over the floor, dead and wounded. And survivors who were pretending to be dead, fearing that we were also terrorists.
“Everybody was asking for help. People were whispering, fearful the shooting might resume. For us, the priority was to secure the area. We carried on. It was unclear if the two terrorists were still there, and if they were there, where they were.”
While the first unit secured the ground floor, an elite squad of heavily armed reinforcements arrived from France’s rapid intervention brigade. One officer told Le Monde he had found “a scene from Dante’s hell”. He said the smell was unbearable, the silence appalling. The only sound came from the ringing of mobile phones as relatives and friends tried to contact their loved ones.
10.15pm: pincer movement to balcony
At 10.15pm two groups of 20 armed elite officers went up on to the balcony in a pincer movement, via two staircases. The two surviving gunmen were holed up in a room upstairs.
Working in two columns, the police checked every room on the first floor, and every corner, one by one. Several hostages had been hiding there – in cupboards and false ceilings. “We pulled out the hostages. They were walking like zombies. They were in a stunned state,” Jean told MYTF1 news. “They were struggling to move forward.”

11.15pm: terrorists’ hostage
At 11.15pm, the police reached a door. They heard a voice. The voice came from a hostage, Sébastien, whom the Isis cell had been using as a guide. “He cried out and said that the terrorists were with them, and said that if the police were to open the door they would blow everything up,” Jean explained.
Sébastien told RTL radio that the terrorists seemed pleased with their carnage but keen to justify their acts. He said: “They gave us their sermon, their speech, the why they were there. They explained to us that the bombs being dropped on Syria were the reason why they were there. They said they were doing to us westerners what we were doing to them over there.”
Sébastien said he was with the gunmen for almost two and a half hours. “They took us in the hall where the injured were still dying. They told us that it was just the start and the war was now beginning. They told us they were there in the name of Islamic State and they asked if we agreed with them. I’ll leave you to imagine the painful silence there was at that moment. The more timid nodded their head and those more brave said yes.”
11.20pm – 12.20am: tense standoff between gunmen and police
Between 11.20pm and 12.20am, there was a standoff between the gunmen and police. One of the terrorists agreed to give a mobile number. The police called five times but there were no negotiations. The terrorists said that if the police did not leave they would shoot and decapitate their hostages and toss their bodies over the balcony. They added that they wanted to talk to the media.

“The only real demand they made during the four or five calls they had was that the police pulled back and did not come near in any circumstances,” Sébastien said. “They asked us to look out of the window and say where the police were and tell them to keep away. We were intermediaries, but more than that … we were human shields.”
Sébastien said one of the terrorists gave him a wad of money and asked him to get out a lighter and set it on fire. “They wanted to see if money was important to me. I felt like Gainsbourg [Serge Gainsbourg set light to a banknote on live television] at that moment, except that I was forced to do it. So you see there was a kind of exchange. At the end, the hostages thanked me.”
The officers inside the theatre had all taken part in tackling the siege in January at the Jewish supermarket where Amédy Coulibaly had taken customers hostage. He was eventually killed.
12.20 : order to end siege

At 12.20am the order was given to end the siege. Behind the door was a narrow corridor about 12 metres long, with the two terrorists at one end and several hostages in the middle. A medical team was on standby.
The first two officers opened the door, crouching behind a Kevlar shield. The goal was to move forward as quickly as possible to rescue the hostages. “As soon as the door opened, the terrorists opened fire. It was very violent, very noisy,” Jean said. Thirty bullets hit the shield. The hostages screamed, and lay flat on the ground. The column moved forward, leading freed hostages back to safety. Sébastien pulled a pregnant woman, who was dangling from a window, back into the building.

All hostages scrambled clear. The officers then set off half a dozen stun grenades, followed by a second round of defensive grenades. They opened fire and, according to Le Monde, saw “a shadow falling”. It turned out to be one of the terrorists. There was then an explosion as the last terrorist blew himself up. The assault lasted three minutes. One officer was
wounded from a bullet that ricocheted off a wall and hit his right hand.
Sébastien said he had jumped on to the stage when the shooting started and tried to hide. The terrorists found him. He said he was aware that one wrong word could cost him his life.
“From the moment they started speaking, I began to tell myself that perhaps I was destined to live, because it would have been so easy to kill me at that moment. I was at his mercy and that image remains engraved [in my head], but it was also the beginning of hope, strange as it may seem, because I had fled, I wanted to hide, and when they found me they didn’t kill me. That was my luck.”

100% PROOF [HACKED VIDEO] Shows Jihadi John/Emwazi in CIA Studio (MUST WATCH)

LEAKED! ISIS Beheading Video Caught Filming In Studio!

This almost seemed too good to be true but I found the above photo at Leak Source and the video of the IS studio filmed fake beheading scene matches in many ways and appears to be a film of the making of the fake James Foley execution video as the moving photograph above brilliantly demonstrates.

Many other small details from the James Foley video appear to match. These include the way the “Jihad John” character tucks his pants into his boots,  the pose of the Foley character,  along with the foreground landscape which differs between the fake execution videos. The Cyber Berkut hacking group claim they found the footage on the phone of a staffer of John McCain.a politician with extensive historical links to jihadist fighters and terror groups as this photograph and many others indicate.

The man in the background next  to McCain’s (as we see it) left shoulder. is alleged to be the Caliph of the IS Abu Bakr al Baghdadi. who it is widely claimed is actually an Israeli agent real name Simon Elliot. Although all hard evidence of the supposed Caliph’s identity is cloaked in layers of misinformation.

The fake Caliph, the intensely pious man with a taste for the finer things!

The whole leader thing did not seem to work with the fake Caliph, he made only one personal appearance was widely mocked and might as well never have existed.

It was claimed that the Caliph was badly wounded in an air strike and was receiving treatment in an Israeli hospital. It was also claimed that he had died.

It is known that Israel provides medical and other assistance to both the IS group and the al Nusra front, it is in the UN reports, it is in the Jerusalem Post.

New UN report reveals collaboration between Israel and Syrian rebels – Middle East – Jerusalem Post.html

“Now, a report from the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) reveals that Israel has been working closely with Syrian rebels in the Golan Heights and have kept close contact over the past 18 months. The report was submitted to the UN Security Council at the beginning of the month.”

“The documents show that Israel has been doing more than simply treating wounded Syrian civilians in hospitals. This and a few past reports have described transfer of unspecified supplies from Israel to the Syrian rebels, and sightings of IDF soldiers meeting with the Syrian opposition east of the green zone, as well as incidents when Israeli soldiers opened up the fence to allow Syrians through who did not appear to be injured.”

“The report said UNDOF “observed at least 10 wounded persons being transferred by armed members of the opposition from the Bravo side across the cease-fire line.”

The story about Baghdadi in Israel wounded or dead may well be true but there is a distinct lack of evidence in any direction.

The beheadings, the Jihad John videos on the other hand were an obvious psyop and fraud proven within days of the Foley release and the Cyber Berkut video only adds to an overwhelming body of evidence of fraud and deception.
