Over 500 people from 20 countries, in 250 vehicles loaded with Humanitarian Aid, are left stranded in Aqaba, Jordan, having been refused permission to enter Egypt. From Ireland, 10 volunteers in 2 ambulances, a van, and a truck loaded with Humanitarian Aid are part of this convoy. The convoy is organized by “Viva Palestina”, a charity founded by George Galloway, MP.

The Egyptian Government have placed 3 conditions on the convoy if it wants to enter Egypt.

1. We hand all our vehicles and aid over to UNRA.

2. We drive 500 miles back to Syria, and take a 24 hour ferry through the Suez Canal.

3. We have to ask Israel for permission to cross from Egypt to Gaza.

All 3 conditions have been flatly rejected by everyone on the convoy, as we want to cross into Gaza and hand our aid over to the Palestinians ourselves.

Would you phone Canada to ask permission to enter the US? Would you ask France for permission to go to Germany? For the 1st time, Egypt have now openly admitted that they are under control of Israel/US.

What you didn’t know about the War..

Posted: December 23, 2009 by Muhammad Umar Muzaffar in Illuminati & Global Elite > International

The World Bank has refused to accept Indian Occupied Kashmir as an integral part of India and has rather insisted upon a disclaimer from the Jammu and Kashmir government that funding for a project will not be seen as recognition of India’s territorial claim on the state.
The agency has put a ‘disclaimer clause’ for bankrolling a key project in the disputed state which indicates that funding of projects in disputed areas should not be used to endorse territorial claims.
“If you have a query on World Bank’s decision on J&K, Ask Prabhu now”. This has been communicated to New Delhi by the occupying state government which wants the World Bank-funded Rs 740 crore ‘Participatory Watershed Management Project’ to be completed.
Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir’s Forest Minister Mian Altaf Ahmad, along with MPs from the state met Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee recently in New Delhi to discuss the issue.
Jammu and Kashmir’s occupying government wants the New Delhi to settle issue with the World Bank, which has refused to fund more projects in the state, treating it as disputed territory between India and Pakistan. Ahmad said the World Bank had raised the disclaimer issue last year after assessment of the project which was then at the funding stage.
He said if the Centre pursued the matter; the bank could be convinced to give up the disclaimer condition. Despite Ahmad’s views to the contrary, this is a shocking development. The World Bank was instrumental in committing India to allow the waters of the state’s three principal rivers – the Indus, the Jhelum and the Chenab – to flow unimpeded under the Indus Water Treaty of 1960.
Article XI of the treaty is quite emphatic in that it will deal with only the water-sharing issue and its implementation will not acknowledge or waive any other rights other than those specified in the treaty. In other words, it will have nothing to do with the territorial dispute between the two parties.
In the troubled history of India-Pakistan relations, the Indus Water Treaty stands out as a major success for which the World Bank, the third signatory to the treaty, deserves great credit. As party to the treaty, the bank created an $895 million Indus Basin Development Fund to which India contributed some $174 million.
This is the second time this year that India has had friction with a multilateral development agency over project funding in a state that has a border dispute. An Asian Development Bank (ADB) country loan to India had run into trouble because it included funding for a watershed development project in Arunachal Pradesh – a point that was objected to by the Chinese at the ADB meeting. The World Bank had funded two projects in Jammu and Kashmir under the integrated Watershed Development Programme with Rs 90 crore from 1990 to 1999 and Rs 198 crore from 1999 to 2005 without bringing up the disclaimer issue.
A team of the World Bank headed by Norman Piccioni had visited the occupied state from May 5 to May 12 last year to assess the feasibility of the Participatory Watershed Management Project.
The project is likely to cover 3,14,705 hectares for adopting integrated watershed management to reverse the degradation of the natural resource base and improve the livelihood of poor rural households in the project area.
The World Bank will finance 80 per cent of the project and the state government 17 per cent. Participatory communities will contribute 3 per cent.
If implemented 1,74,250 households will be covered while 50,675 households will directly benefit from the project. Overall, it is expected to benefit over 10 lakh people and generate 45 lakh person-days of wage employment besides providing jobs to 2,000 people regularly for seven years.
Chief Minister Omar Abdullah first raised the issue in a June 24 letter to the Union finance minister.
He said the project was appraised by the World Bank for international development assistance credit of US$ 120 million equivalent in May 2008. After the appraisal, the director of the World Bank sent a letter on May 21, 2008 announcing the tentative dates of negotiation for the project in June last year. But no final date was conveyed by the bank.
The Chief Minister said the state government also did not get any communication from the department of economic affairs of the government of India in the matter. “I therefore request you to have a special consideration for the state of Jammu and Kashmir and ask the department of economic affairs to immediately take up the issue with the World Bank so that the project can be negotiated and taken up for implementation during the current financial year itself.” Efforts to contact World Bank officials in Delhi on Sunday failed.

Michael Jackson’s Lawyer Becomes Muslim

Posted: December 19, 2009 by Muhammad Umar Muzaffar in Illuminati & Global Elite > International

Mark Shaffer

An American millionaire, Mark Shaffer declared his Islam in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, 17th October 2009. Mark was at that time on a holiday in Saudi Arabia to visit some famous cities like Riyadh, Abha and Jeddah for 10 days.
Mark is a well-known millionaire and also a practiced lawyer in Los Angeles, specializing in cases of civil laws. The last big case he handled was the case of the famous American pop singer, Michael Jackson, a week before he passed away.

A tourist guide who accompanied Mark for 10 days in Saudi Arabia, Dhawi Ben Nashir told: Since he set foot for the first time in Saudi Arabia, Mark already started to ask question about Islam and Solat. As soon as he arrived in Saudi, Mark stayed in Riyadh for two days. While in Riyadh, Mark was very interested in Islam. After moving to Najran, we went to Abha and Al-Ula. There, his fascination on Islam grew more obvious, especially the time when we ventured out into the desert.

Mark Shaffer

Mark was amazed to see three Saudi youths who were in our group in Al-Ula, performing solat in the expanse of the very wide desert. A very fantastic panorama indeed.
After two days in Al-Ula, we went to Al-Juf. As soon as we arrived in Al-Juf, Mark asked if I could get him some books on Islam. I then obtained some books on Islam for him. Mark read all those books. The next morning, he asked me to teach him how to perform solat. I then taught him how to pray and take wudhu (ablution). Then, he joined me and performed solat beside me.

ISI clearance mandatory for visit to Pak, foreigners told

http://pakistankakhudahafiz.wordpress.com/2009/12/19/isi-clearance-mandatory-for-visit-to-pak-foreigners-told/

In a major policy decision, the government has made it mandatory for the Pakistani missions abroad to issue visas to foreigners intending to visit Pakistan only after their clearance from the country’s top intelligence agency ISI.

Well-placed government sources told TheNation on Friday that the move had come after thorough deliberations and in view of the security situation in the country. Sources privy to these developments maintained that the decision had been taken after reports of undesired activities of some foreigners especially, the Americans and foreign journalists. According to the informed sources, the intelligence agencies have taken serious notice of the objectionable activities of some foreign journalists in Gilgit-Baltistan during the recent elections.

Five young American Muslims suspected of wanting to join terrorist groups have been arrested in Pakistan.

The five students in their early 20s from northern Virginia were detained in the city of Sargodha, 190 kilometers southeast of Islamabad on Monday.

They were found in a house belonging to a relative of one of the young men who is believed by police to have links to the outlawed militant group Jaish-e- Muhammad.

This group is blamed by police for many terrorist acts, including the 2002 murder of American journalist Daniel Pearl and an attempted assassination of former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf.

Pakistani authorities were on the look-out for the five Americans at the request of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The families of the five reported them missing in late November after finding a video in which the students urged Muslims to defend Islam.

The video was passed to the United States Council on American-Islamic Relations which in turn gave it to the FBI.

Two of the students are said to be of Pakistani origin while the others are believed to be of Eritrean, Yemeni and Egyptian descent. All are American citizens.

Sarghoda’s police chief, Usman Anwar, said examination of laptop computers found at the house where the five were detained showed they had been in touch with various militant groups in Pakistan since August.

If it is found that the five were indeed trying to join terrorist groups it will raise more questions about disenchanted young Muslims in western societies.

The 800-pound gorilla standing in the auditorium at West Point is still waiting for an answer to why Obama made his surge-speech for 30,000 more troops and $30 billion to pay for them. That gorilla wonders “why” Obama pitched so hard for the US to stay and surge through Afghanistan and Pakistan. The reasons given were that the Afghanistan Taliban and Al Qaeda led by Osama bin Laden were the people that attacked us on 9/11, which was an iteration of George W. Bush’s reasons for the War on Terror. They are as phony now as the day Bush promised to smoke out Bin Laden.

But, here are Obama’s actual words, pointed out by Christopher Bollyn on page 2 of his article, Why Afghanistan?

“1. I am convinced that our security is at stake in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This is the epicenter of the violent extremism practiced by al-Qaeda. It is from here that we were attacked on 9/11, and it is from here that new attacks are being plotted as I speak.

“2. It is important to recall why America and our allies were compelled to fight a war in Afghanistan in the first place. We did not ask for this fight. On September 11, 2001, 19 men hijacked four airplanes and used them murder nearly 3,000 people.

“3: If I did not think that the security of the United States and the safety of the American people were at stake in Afghanistan, I would gladly order every single one of our troops home tomorrow.”

Also, as early as Oct. 14, 2001, a month and three days after 9/11, Bollyn wrote in The Great Game – The War For Caspian Oil And Gas: “President Bush’s ‘crusade’ against the Taliban of Afghanistan has more to do with control of the immense oil and gas resources of the Caspian Basin than it does with ‘rooting out terrorism.’

While reacting to US President Barack Obama’s new strategy for Afghanistan, the Afghan Taliban said on Wednesday that it did not contain anything that could help resolve the Afghan conflict.

A statement issued by the Islamic Emirates in Pashto language to media organisations said: “The strategy shows that the wishes and demands of the American people, who are confronting serious financial problems, have not been kept in mind. Rather the strategy was formulated to protect the interests of the generals at the Pentagon and the capitalists.

“No sign towards solution to the Afghan issue could be seen in Obama’s strategy. It is aimed at killing two birds with one stone — to reduce Afghans’ apathy to foreign forces and to counter criticism in the US and concern of their allies. However, it is of no use, as military casualties will also increase with the rise in the number of foreign troops in Afghanistan.

“In the history of Afghanistan, none was able to capture it with deceptions, resources and high number of troops, the statement added. Neither have we any base in Pakistan nor we needed such a base outside Afghanistan as we control a vast area in our own country.

Claims about the Taliban presence in Pakistan are aimed at diverting attention from the strong resistance that our fighters are offering in Afghanistan. We have no intention to harm anyone in the world, so the presence of foreign invaders in Afghanistan has no link to security of the world.

“Like the past, the Islamic Emirates is fully committed to fighting foreign allies’ (the US and its allies) unjust, anti-Islamic and anti-Afghanistan conspiracies with long resistance, strong strategy and high morale. We firmly believe that Obama’s strategy would fail like the past. We remind the US that it would itself disintegrate instead of capturing Afghanistan if it continued with its policy of aggression.”

Mushtaq Yusufzai adds: Reacting to the announcement by the US that it would send additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan, Taliban commander Sirajuddin Haqqani said on Wednesday that numerical strength would not save Americans from a “historic” defeat in Afghanistan.

“We knew Obama would not be different from his predecessor Bush when he was elected to the office. We also knew he would send more troops to Afghanistan but we have a strong belief that they would leave soon as America would not be able to sustain the losses at our hands,” the Taliban commander claimed.

The US State Department has announced $5 million reward for information leading to the capture of Sirajuddin Haqqani alias Khaleefa, who is head of the so-called Taliban group Haqqani Network, established by his father Maulvi Jalaluddin Haqqani.

The Taliban Shura had held an important meeting that was chaired by their supreme leader Mullah Omar, which decided not to halt fighting during the winter.

“Gone are the days when we were living in the mountains and could not fight in winter. Now with the support of the Afghan people, we live in major cities and towns and operate very easily,” Sirajuddin claimed.

Iraq: The war was illegal

Posted: December 1, 2009 by Muhammad Umar Muzaffar in Illuminati & Global Elite > International

Then Attorney General Goldsmith was ‘pinned to the wall and bullied into keeping quiet’ while the Prime Minister kept the Cabinet in the dark.

Tony Blair will be quizzed over a devastating official memo warning him that war on Iraq would be illegal eight months before he sent troops into Baghdad, it was claimed last night.

The Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war will consider a letter from Lord Goldsmith, then Mr Blair’s top law officer, advising him that deposing Saddam would be in breach of international law, according to a report in The Mail on Sunday.

But Mr Blair refused to accept Lord Goldsmith’s advice and instead issued instructions for his long-term friend to be “gagged” and barred from cabinet meetings, the newspaper claimed. Lord Goldsmith apparently lost three stone, and complained he was “more or less pinned to the wall” in a No 10 showdown with two of Mr Blair’s most loyal aides, Lord Falconer and Baroness Morgan. Mr Blair also allegedly failed to inform the Cabinet of the warning, fearing an “anti-war revolt”.
