“The Saudis and other Arab countries have turned their lands into Western bases. They do this not to support Islam but to gain power,” added Awang, who is the president of the Parti Islam SeMalaysia, an Islamic political party in Malaysia.“This makes us (feel) sorry that the Saudi government has been made to serve Israeli and Western interests,” he stated. “It is a Western plot to safeguard the interests of Israel and the West. They use religion as a tool for this game by using media people and political figures. Malaysia has been influenced as well,” Awang noted. He said the plot is aimed at pitting regional countries against one another in an effort to provide security for Israel.
Supporters of Iran sanctions bill in the US Senate are now “on the defensive” as the White House and mainstream media are both opposing the legislation, said Philip Giraldi, a former CIA officer in Washington.
As negotiations continue between Iran and the P5+1 nations, including the United States, over Tehran’s nuclear energy program, 59 US senators have signed onto Iran sanctions bill that was introduced by Sens. Robert Menendez and Mark Kirk in late December.
“I think that the hawks are in trouble right now. I think that there is considerable sentiment in the mainstream media opposing their bill in the Senate, and I believe that they will now be unable to get enough votes in the Senate to override a veto by the president,” Giraldi said in an interview with Press TV on Saturday.“I think that they are very much on the defensive now on this issue”, he added.
The hawks, heavily backed by the powerful Israel lobby, have enough votes to pass the bill. However efforts to move the legislation forward have stalled as the White House, Congress and lobbyists clash over the wisdom of passing new sanctions while pursuing diplomacy with Iran.

The 'Jewish Covenant with God', according to Pope Frances ~ link ~ Francis is quite possibly the most philo-Semitic pope in history, and in November of 2013 he published his Evangelii Gaudium (“The Joy of the Gospel”) which included a section on the Catholic Church’s “relations with Judaism.”
In it he asserts, “We hold the Jewish people in special regard because their covenant with God has never been revoked…” which is a distinct departure from Church doctrine, a doctrine which for many centuries has held that the covenant between God and the Jews, as outlined in the pages of the Old Testament, was superseded by the new covenant in Christ.

Physical gold shortage goes mainstream ~ link ~ The crooks have oversold gold many times beyond the total available worldwide. I expect, and I am not an expert on this, that this will eventually drive the price of gold sky high!!! Stirling
While the topic of rehypothecation and the shortage of physical gold is well covered here at Zero Hedge (and the ever-changing COMEX gold vaults' inventories), it appears the concept of the exploding "leverage" or default risk of the COMEX has now hit the mainstream media. As BNN reports, veteran trader Tres Knippa, pointing to recent futures data, says "there may not be enough gold to go around if everyone with a futures contract insists on taking delivery of physical bullion." As he goes on to explain to a disquieted anchor, "the underlying story here is that the people acquiring physical gold continue to do that. And that’s what is important," noting large investors like hedge fund manager Kyle Bass are taking delivery of the gold they're buying. Knippa's parting advice, buy physical gold; avoid paper.

German gold manipulation blowback escalates: Deutsche Bank exits gold price fixing ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ Germany's blowback against gold manipulation is accelerating. Following yesterday's report that Bafin took a hard line against precious metals manipulation, after its president Eike Koenig said possible manipulation of precious metals "is worse than the Libor-rigging scandal", today the response has trickled down to Germany and Europe's largest bank, Deutsche Bank, which announced that it would withdraw from the appropriately named gold and silver price "fixing", as European regulators investigate suspected manipulation of precious metals prices by banks. As a reminder, Deutsche is one of five banks involved in the twice-daily gold fix for global price setting and said it was quitting the process after withdrawing from the bulk of its commodities business. The scramble away from gold fixing was certainly assisted by the recent first (of many) manipulation expose in the legacy media, when Bloomberg revealed "How Gold Price Is Manipulated During The "London Fix." And sure enough, with Germany already very sensitive to the topic of its gold repatriation, and specifically why it is taking so long, it was only a matter of time before any German involvement in gold manipulation escalated to the very top.

He was raised in the Indonesian Presidential Palace during part of his childhood and he served in Afghanistan as a CIA agent. He is the second bi-sexual or gay coke addict we have had as president, and the third coke addict as president in a row. He is all fraud and bullshit!!! Stirling
