To my good readers

I don't normally like to bother people with requests of this kind but if any of you could say a prayer or two for the "aged parent" I would be very grateful.  Apparently the hospital beckons.

With every good wish to all of you...

Russia finally calls a spade a spade: The US supports ISIS

After Saturday's coordinated US/Israeli strikes on Syrian government troops, which allowed ISIS to gain new ground in that war-ravaged land, Russian foreign ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova decided to put her foot down and speak some bold truths to our UN Ambassadress Samantha Power. Zakharova is one tough cookie and it is great to see someone speak out against the supremely arrogant likes of Power.

Here's the news story:

Naturally, the little boys in Tel Aviv who instigated the Syrian mess and are using Washington as their attack dog remain delicately unmentioned here by Russia.  In charity I will presume that they have good reasons for not also calling out Israel even though they are fully aware of who the masterminds are in this war.  But that the USA was finally publicly accused of doing what everyone around the world knows it is doing is at least refreshing.

In the meantime, Christians continue being murdered in Syria by the two nations most intent on eradicating Christianity in the Middle East.

TODAY: Trying to protect its citizens, Syria is attacked by US and Israel

Today America and Israel struck Syrian government forces who are trying to protect their country from the ISIS terrorists.

Here is the news report:

http://www.moonofalabama.org/2016/09/us-launches-open-war-on-syrian-government-forces.html

What we are now seeing is the complete absence of any pretense.  We are seeing pure, naked aggression against Syria, fighting for its life against the terrorists sent by the US and Israel.  It is not "the terrorists" destroying Syria; they are mere pawns, cannon fodder created by mandarins in Tel Aviv and Washington to do the dirty work, the prep work so to speak.  Yes they are monsters; are they any worse than the ones who created and sent them?  But even so they were being defeated by Syrian forces with enormous help from Iran and Russia and Hezbollah.  So in the face of these setbacks the big boys, the deciders, decided to act. Today after the so-called cease-fire US and Israeli jets in an obviously coordinated campaign swooped into the country to destroy Syrian army personnel, the same personnel protecting its citizens.

Let us sort this out.

The US/Israeli alliance is fighting the Syrians who are fighting the terrorists.  These two cruel regimes did not attack terrorist positions.  Oh no.  They attacked the Syrian government positions defending their nation against the US/Israeli trained terrorists.  A Syrian spoke out about this two years ago.

I will make this short in the hopes that as many as possible will see through the clouds of fog that have obscured our visions for decades.

Why did the USA and Israel do this?

1.  The Yinon Plan.  Please peruse the details of this plan.

2.  Israel wants to steal the Golan Heights from Syria, because of its strategic position and its wealth.

3.  The war mongering lunatics and Dr Strangelove's (like Ashton Carter) in Washington are itching for a new world war, so that International Finance can pick up the spoils, as they always do.

4.  This is another attempt to goad Russia, one of the nations working with Syria to stop the destruction of their country, into taking the bait and responding militarily.  That way the US can have its little war...which will turn into a big war.

5.  It is also political.  It will help war monger Hillary and hurt less-war-inclined Trump.  (But now that Trump has selected one of the worst neocon idiots in the world to be his "security adviser", James Woolsey, it is no longer certain that he would honor his pledge to work with Putin.)

6.  To further annihilate the Christian presence in the cradle of civilization.

With today's move it is no longer possible for rational people to continue to avoid seeing the true reality of what is going on.  Perhaps what we are seeing is that the Iranians were not too far off the mark when they called America "the great Satan". Here are two horns on the head of the great Satan working together to destroy the Christians and innocent Muslims in the Middle East.

Our Lady of Damascus, pray for them, and for us.

Satanic: Testimony of a Syrian

From Global Research (h/t Patrick Foy):



Two years ago, “Majd” wrote these words on a Facebook posting:
“ I am Syrian… living in Syria in the middle of everything. We have seen horrors. It was never a revolution nor a civil war. The terrorists are sent by your goverment. They are al Qaeda Jabhat al Nusra Wahhabi Salafists Talibans etc and the extremist jihadists sent by the West, the Saudis, Qatar and Turkey. Your Obama and whoever is behind him or above him are supporting al Qaeda and leading a proxy war on my country.
We thought you are against al Qaeda and now you support them.
The majority here loves Assad. He has never committed a crime against his own people… The chemical attack was staged by the terrorists helped by the USA and the UK,  etc. Everyone knows that here.
American soldiers and people should not be supporting barbarian al Qaeda terrorists who are killing Christians, Muslims in my country and everyone.
Every massacre is committed by them. We were all happy in Syria: we had free school and university education available for everyone, free healthcare, no GMO, no fluoride, no chemtrails, no Rothschild IMF- controlled bank, state owned central bank which gives 11% interest, we are self-sufficient and have no foreign debt to any country or bank.
Life before the crisis was so beautiful here. Now it is hard and horrific in some regions.
I do not understand how the good and brave American people can accept to bomb my country which has never harmed them and therefore help the barbarian al Qaeda. These animals slit throats and behead for pleasure… they behead babies and rape young kids.
They are satanic. Our military helped by the millions of civilian militias are winning the battle against al Qaeda. But now the USA wants to bomb the s**t out of us so that al Qaeda can get the upper hand. 
Please help us American people. They are destroying the cradle of civilization. Stop your government.
Impeach that bankster puppet you have as president… support Ron Paul or Rand or anyone the like who are true American patriots. but be sure of one.thing..if they attack and I think they will….it will be hell.
Be sure that if it were to be a world war, many many will die. Syria can and will defend itself and will sink many US ships. Iran will go to war..Russia and China eventually if it escalates… and all this for what ? For the elites who created al Qaeda through the US government and use it to conduct proxy wars and destabilize countries which do not go along with their new world order agenda !!?
American people…you gotta regain control of your once admirable country. Now everyone hates you for.the.death you bring almost everywhere.
Ask the Iraqis…the Afghans…the Pakistanis…the Palestinians…the Syrians…the Macedonians and Serbs…the Libyans…the Somalis…the Yemenis ….all the ones you kill with drones everyday. Stop your wars, Enough wars. Use diplomacy..dialogue…help..not force.”

The Facebook Censorship Coalition

That notable Irishman Mark Zuckerberg, founder of the Facebook empire, is officially collaborating with the Israeli government on a plan to censor views they don't like.  Ho-hum.  Does this surprise anyone?

I find Facebook to be utterly stupid in concept, even while agreeing that occasionally some enterprising souls can use it to get some truth out into the world.  But putting aside the idiocy of its concept we now see a plan to control the occasional good speech therein, and controlling speech is always the forerunner of a totalitarian dictatorship waiting in the wings.  The good that this internet site can sometimes do will now find itself at the tender mercies of a collaboration between the so-called state of Israel and the ridiculous Zuckerberg, friend of presidents and Popes.

From Glenn Greenwald:


LAST WEEK, A MAJOR censorship controversy erupted when Facebook began deleting all posts containing the iconic photograph of the Vietnamese “Napalm Girl” on the ground that it violated the company’s ban on “child nudity.” Facebook even deleted a post from the prime minister of Norway, who posted the photograph in protest of the censorship. As outrage spread, Facebook ultimately reversed itself — acknowledging “the history and global importance of this image in documenting a particular moment in time” — but this episode illustrated many of the dangers I’ve previously highlighted in having private tech companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google become the arbiters of what we can and cannot see.
Having just resolved that censorship effort, Facebook seems to be vigorously courting another. The Associated Press reports today from Jerusalem that “the Israeli government and Facebook have agreed to work together to determine how to tackle incitement on the social media network.” These meetings are taking place “as the government pushes ahead with legislative steps meant to force social networks to rein in content that Israel says incites violence.” In other words, Israel is about to legislatively force Facebook to censor content deemed by Israeli officials to be improper, and Facebook appears eager to appease those threats by working directly with the Israeli government to determine what content should be censored.

Beelzebublian Lunacy

 Western children are being indoctrinated with a philosophy fed into their young minds via media and education, one in which the usual claims to ‘compassion’ and ‘inclusivity’ are used as cover.


Gender is fundamental. It lays the groundwork for who you are and your role in the tribe. For this reason – one must assume – it is under attack by the Cultural Marxists, aided and abetted by their point-of-sale dispensers, the liberal progressives.

In Brighton, England, according to the Guardian, thousands of parents were recently asked to state the gender their four-year-old children “most identify with” in a letter sent to them by the local council.

The letter said: "We recognise that not all children and young people identify with the gender they were assigned at birth or may identify as a gender other than male or female, however the current systems (set nationally) only record gender as male or female.

"Please support your child to choose the gender they most identify with.

"Or if they have another gender identity please leave this blank and discuss with your child's school."

In the same piece, the Guardian reports that Cllr Emma Daniel, head of Brighton's equalities committee, said she was aware of "concerns" over the wording. She told the Sun: "We have inserted the additional text about gender identity in response to calls from families, young people and schools to show an inclusive approach.

"There are increasing numbers of children and young people nationally identifying as trans."

Daniel added: "We will review this to see whether we can make it clearer that we consider discussions around gender identity to be an option for parents rather than an obligation."

So, in Brighton at least, the thin end of the wedge is firmly in place. It will be hammered home using the same method Cultural Marxism always uses: professed compassion for a tiny or imaginary number of people used to pollute the minds and milieux of the vast majority by imposing upon it some new reason to be weak, freakish, foolish, unnatural or perverted – meanwhile, holding the threat of accusations of bigotry and lack of compassion over its head if it so much as blinks before the social-engineering project it has no say in, but must pay for, becomes the new status quo.

Russia, Then and Now

A lovely article by Peter Hitchens, which is a must read.

Hitchens is wrong about the Ukraine and Crimea, and his disdain for Putin is, ironically, in contradiction to what he writes about the resurgence of Christian Russia.  He characterizes him as a tyrant.  We should be so lucky to have such a "tyrant" in America.

When Hitchens describes the rebirth of this land which began after Communism was swept away and the essence of Christianity started to creep back into the lives of the people, it awakened in me some new hope for Catholics who now live in this surreal world of disorientation and the almost total absence of the essence of Catholicism in their lives.  When the horrible "regime" of Modernism from Rome on down to the tiniest country church is at last swept away like the Bolsheviks were swept away perhaps Catholics will again experience a rebirth like the one occurring in Russia.  The Russians had to see just how bad life was without Christ when under the Communists.  Perhaps this is why God is allowing the decimation of the Church by its own leaders, so that we, too, will see how life is without Christ.

Then afterwards, hopefully, rebirth.  May God hasten the day.

Like most Englishmen, I grew up with a natural dislike of “abroad” and a belief in the inferiority of all foreign things. I think it took me five visits to France before I began to regret leaving that lovely country rather than to rejoice at my return to our safe and familiar island.
It often strikes me as quite funny that I spent so much of my life as a foreign correspondent, a profession for which I am so unfitted. When I went to live in Moscow in 1990, I felt that I had somehow betrayed my native soil. (I was born in the middle of the Mediterranean, but these are technicalities.) I still recall a brief return from the U.S.S.R. to my hometown of Oxford, during which I was asked for directions by an American tourist. “You must live here,” he said, impressed by my historically detailed advice. “No,” I confessed with a strange feeling of guilt. “I live in Moscow.” For the first time in my life I had chosen to live in foreign parts, and very strange and hostile parts they seemed to be.
Yet the experience of living in that sad and handsome place brought me to love Russia and its stoical people, to learn some of what they had suffered and see what they had regained. And so, as all around me rage against the supposed aggression and wickedness of Vladimir Putin’s Russia, I cannot join in. Despite the fact that Moscow has abandoned control of immense areas of Europe and Asia, self-appointed experts insist that Russia is an expansionist power. Oddly, this “expansion” only seems to be occurring in zones that Moscow once controlled, into which the E.U. and NATO, supported by the U.S., have sought to extend their influence.
The comparison of today’s Russia to yesterday’s U.S.S.R. is baseless. I know this, and rage inwardly at my inability to convey my understanding to others. Could this be because I have been unable to communicate the change of heart I underwent during my more than two years in the Russian capital?
Let me try again, starting in a Moscow street called Bolshaya Ordynka. The existence of this place, at the end of the Soviet era, was a great shock to me. Moscow in 1990 was at first sight a festival of concrete. Its cityscape was the Leninist word made flesh, arrogant proletarian lumps deliberately defying all concepts of beauty and grace, the very suburbs of hell.
But Bolshaya Ordynka was not like this. Here was the Moscow of Leo Tolstoy, with trees and low classical houses, not ordained by some gigantic bureaucratic plan, but sweetly proportioned to human needs. On it stood a church with the haunting name of “The Consolation of All Sorrows,” something badly needed at that time of nervous shortage, abrupt catastrophe, and the ever-present fear of a midnight putsch with tanks grinding along the streets. (In August 1991 I woke from a fretful sleep to find those tanks coming down my Moscow avenue, Kutuzovsky Prospekt, barrels aslant in the morning light, throwing up dust as they tore the road to bits.)
This modest street, Bolshaya Ordynka, could outdo Paris in loveliness. Here, under many grimy and bloody layers of Leninism, neglect, and about three wars, lay Russia, a very different thing from the U.S.S.R. Unlike the U.S.S.R., it was profoundly Christian, rather glorious, and no particular threat to the West. Perhaps the Bolsheviks had not, after all, destroyed and desecrated absolutely everything, and a lost nation was waiting quietly to return to life.
