Iranian Supreme Leader Sends Crucial Message to World Audience on Terrorism

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei released an important message to the world youth on global terrorism, including the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
Here is the full text of the letter:
In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

To the Youth in Western Countries,
Today, there are very few people who are uninformed about the role of the United States of America in creating, nurturing and arming al-Qaeda, the Taliban and their inauspicious successors. Besides this direct support, the overt and well-known supporters of takfiri terrorism- despite having the most backward political systems- are standing arrayed as allies of the west while the most pioneering, brightest and most dynamic democrats in the region are suppressed mercilessly.
The other side of these contradictory policies is seen in supporting the state terrorism of Israel.

Meet the man who funds ISIS: the son of Turkey’s President, Bilal Erdogan

The son of Turkey’s president (and thus, the father) is the silent mastermind who has been responsible for converting millions of barrels of Syrian Oil into hundreds of millions of dollars of Islamic State revenue.

Russia’s Sergey Lavrov is not one foreign minister known to mince his words.

Just earlier today, 24 hours after a Russian plane was brought down by the country whose president three years ago said “a short-term border violation can never be a pretext for an attack”, had this to say:

“We have serious doubts this was an unintended incident and believe this is a planned provocation” by Turkey.

But even that was tame compared to what Lavrov said to his Turkish counterparty Mevlut Cavusoglu earlier today during a phone call between the two (Lavrov who was supposed to travel to Turkey has since canceled such plans).

A Feast of Scandal – Justin Raimondo

We’re grateful for and to Patrick J. Fitzgerald, whose existence proves that the old America yet lives.

We have a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving

I’m thankful for so many things this Thanksgiving that it’s going to take me an entire column just to adequately describe them. Indeed, I’m already so loaded down with gifts that I don’t need Christmas. My cup runneth over! For an old libertarian “isolationist” like me this holiday season is a bountiful time, one that yields so much that it seems like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and my birthday all rolled into one. Take a gander at this wonderful cornucopia of plenty:

An Invisible US Hand Leading to War? Turkey’s Downing of a Russian Jet was an Act of Madness

It is all terribly dangerous and it is hard to predict where things will lead.

This outrageous shootdown of a Russian plane that was in no way posing a threat to Turkey or Turkish forces, will not end here, because Russia and President Putin cannot allow Turkey and NATO to so blatantly act against Russia and its pilots and go unpunished, particularly as it is Russia that is acting legally in Syria, while the US, Turkey and other nations backing rebel forces there are in all acting blatant violation of international law.

Unless saner heads start prevailing in Washington, this could all quickly spiral into the kind of situation in 1914, where a lot of ill-conceived treaties led to a minor incident in the Balkans turning inexorably into World War I.

Is Turkey Starting a Proxi-War for NATO?

It is clear, Turkey hosting the recent G20 meeting and subscribing to the east-west ‘coalition’ of fighting the ISIS / DAESH / Al Qaeda terror, was a loosely disguised farce.

Did Turkey just provoke a proxi-war on behalf of NATO against Russia? – Turkey knew very well that the Russian SU-24 fighter jet was inside Syria’s borders and that even as it may have been close to Turkey it was no threat for Turkey. Russia’s mission was clear to all the 19 nations which attended the G20 meeting some 10 days ago in Antalya, Turkey, when the entire group unanimously decided to cooperate in fighting the Islamic State (IS – or Daesh, according to its Arabic acronym).

Turkey Shoots Down More Than Just a Russian Jet

It is only a matter of time before the rhetorical shell game conducted by the terrorist sponsors comes unstuck.

Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian fighter jet this week was likely aimed at a bigger political target – to deal a blow to the proposal of a grand anti-terror coalition between the West and Russia for fighting the Islamic State extremist network in Syria.

Such a coalition might seem reasonable, even desirable, to most people. But it is profoundly unacceptable, tacitly, to Washington because it would further expose the criminal nature of the Western-sponsored regime-change operation in Syria.

Washington and its allies do not want Russia to participate in an effective military coalition that would accelerate the destruction of the mercenary terror army that the Western powers have covertly invested in. In that regard, French President Francois Hollande seems to have momentarily lost the devious plot by proposing such an alliance with Russia.

Manufacturing a phony caliphate

Carefully-orchestrated snuff films directed by media experts.

The double-edged sword of cyber warfare

Kind of in your face aren't they!

One week after the Israeli army formally recognized cyber weapons as a fourth dimension of warfare, alongside land, air and sea, the defense minister on Wednesday sang the praises of digital weapons, saying that they can attack and conquer enemy assets without leaving a trace.

“Cyberspace enables the attack of another nation state in offensive action, even reaching victory without leaving any fingerprints, even if it is suspected,” Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Wednesday at the fifth annual Cyber Security Conference at Tel Aviv University, according to a conference statement. “We are already there; we are not talking about some distant future. We have experienced this in Israel’s day-to-day actions against its enemies.”

The reference to offensive action was somewhat rare and it came just two weeks after Israel was fingered as a suspect in a cyberattack against participants in the nuclear negotiations with Iran.

Flashback: Did Money Seal Israeli-Saudi Alliance?

According to a source briefed by U.S. intelligence analysts, the Saudis have given Israel at least $16 billion over the past 2 ½ years, funneling the money through a third-country Arab state and into an Israeli “development” account in Europe to help finance infrastructure inside Israel. The source first called the account “a Netanyahu slush fund,” but later refined that characterization, saying the money was used for public projects such as building settlements in the West Bank.

In other words, according to this information, the Saudis concluded that if you can’t beat the Israel Lobby, try buying it. And, if that is the case, the Saudis have found their behind-the-scenes collaboration with Israel extremely valuable. Netanyahu has played a key role in lining up the U.S. Congress to fight an international agreement to resolve a long-running dispute over Iran’s nuclear program.

Russia Says Bomb Downed Plane in Egypt and Intensifies Attacks on ISIS

Russia said for the first time on Tuesday that a bomb aboard a Russian charter jet full of vacationers caused the aircraft’s destruction more than two weeks ago over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, and the Kremlin responded immediately by escalating airstrikes across Syria.

The Russians said they were coordinating their military campaign with France in sharply ratcheting up attacks on Syrian territory, especially areas held by the Islamic State, the militant group that has asserted responsibility for destroying the Russian jetliner and for the spree of deadly attacks across Paris on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, now that the actual investigators have concluded there was a bomb, that is fine. I think that Putin held off announcing the plane was bombed as he knew the US was pushing to have a justification to get back into Syria. When that didn't work, Paris happened, and now that Paris has happened, Putin is announcing the plane was bombed to send a signal to the world that Russia has an equal and prior claim to escalate the situation on Syria.

Airbus 321 in the Sinaï - only one hypothesis remains

Russian investigators brought with them to Egypt a complex apparatus designed to test the débris both inside and outside the plane. This equipment enables the detection of aerosol-based explosives to a level of sensitivity of 20 nanogrammes. If, in the test solutions, there appear traces of a brown-violet colour, the agent is revealed as TNT. If an orange precipitate appears, the explosive is Tetryl, or another explosive from group A (TNB, DNT, picric acid, etc.). The Russian device possesses a range of separate tests for explosives from group B. With this system, the appearance in test solutions of a rosy colour would indicate the use of dynamite, nitroglycerine, RDX, PETN, SEMTEX or nitrocellulose. If the chemical reactions do not identify explosives from groups A and B, the test equipment automatically checks for the presence of components containing inorganic nitrates, such as chlorine, bromine or peroxyde, used in the preparation of improvised explosive devices (ANFO).

Intel on 'two-hour timer' uncovered in Russian jet crash investigation

Investigators analyzing the deadly crash of a Russian jet in Egypt uncovered intelligence about a “a two-hour timer,” though it is not clear whether the reference came from intercepted communications between known terrorist operatives, or physical evidence, a source familiar with the investigation told Fox News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More of the usual "intercepted (by Rita Katz probably) chatter" and "source familiar with the investigation." At this point, I prefer to wait for the actual investigators to make an official announcement. After all, it was known since last June that the hackers who struck J.P. Morgan Chase were Israeli, but FOX News was one of the corporate outlets insisting it was "likely" the Chinese!

Now note that this information about a spy satellite image comes just days after the crash.

Meanwhile, it’s been over a year and a half since the 2014 crash of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine — an incident that also saw a civilian airliner destroyed in midair. In this case, the US insists the crash was caused by a Russian-built BUK anti-aircraft missile provided to, and launched by pro-Russian separatist forces in Eastern Ukraine.

The US has made this claim ad nauseum, but has never provided a shred of evidence to support its charge.

British experts gave security at Sharm the all-clear just WEEKS before the Russian jet disaster, claims Egyptian governor

British experts gave security at Sharm el-Sheikh airport the all-clear just weeks before the Russian holiday jet disaster, a senior Egyptian official has claimed.

Khaled Fouda, the governor of South Sinai province, said UK officials had made regular visits to the airport all year and did not raise concerns about safety.

US: Sinai Plane Bomb Likely Used Military-Grade Explosives

US officials, carrying out their own investigation into the bombing of a Russian Metrojet in the Sinai Peninsula despite not having access to the crash site or any of the direct evidence, say that they BELIEVE bringing down the plane would’ve required a “military-grade” explosive, likely something along the lines of C4.

US and British officials are expressing annoyance at not having been invited to directly participate in the investigation with Russia and Egypt, and warn that they may never be given enough access to independently determine exactly what happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the US and UK governments; belief is neither evidence nor proof; and if the Egyptian and Russian governments are uncomfortable giving you access to the actual forensics work going on, you have earned their distrust by consistently wanting the alleged "results" to conform to your geopolitical narrative, whether it is actually true...or not.

Sharm el-Sheikh: Catastrophic flaw in intelligence sharing?

The British authorities knew that Sharm el-Sheikh airport security was weak ten months ago. So much so that they sent a team of experts to bolster screening measures. Stories abound of tourists paying twenty pounds to avoid security checks, a few weeks ago. Chatter was picked up that ISIL was planning a terrorist attack. So why was this not shared with the Russians?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Two possibilities.

1. The British just made up the story about weak security and ISIS chatter to sell the ISIS terrorist bomb story.

2. The British wanted the security weak so that someone such as Israel could get a bomb on board the airplane!

In the hours after the downing of a Russian airliners over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, there was little to no intelligence comment from Western nations. It was only a few days later that they started giving credence to the idea that ISIS, who immediately claimed credit, was actually responsible.

It now appears that the intelligence they suddenly had on the bombing wasn’t internally gathered, as US diplomatic sources say Israel actually provided the two nations with intelligence of their own about the matter. Israel is so far not offering additional details.

U.S. AND BRITISH OFFICIALS are now saying, at least tentatively, that an explosive device likely downed the Kogalymavia Airbus over the Sinai peninsula last weekend.

Israel Held ‘Largest Ever’ Air Combat Drill Nearby, On Same Day as Russian Sinai Crash

Last week, 21WIRE raised a number of the questions, including the possibility that Israeli intelligence could have been involved in the downing of Russian Metro Airlines Flight 7K9268.

It’s no revelation that the Egyptian resort destination of Sharm El-Sheikh is also a well-known Israeli Mossad ‘intelligence playground’. If indeed Israeli covert operatives were somehow involved in this incident, it wouldn’t be the first time that Israel carried out a false flag attack in order to manipulate another nation into a wider war. The case of Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty is a prime example of this.

Western Media's Despicable Justification of Terrorism

This week frustration with the Western media narrative has turned much darker - the despicable reaction of many media commentators to the tragic deaths of 224 innocent people in the Russian plane crash in Sinai has now turned that frustration to intense anger. Far from this being an occasion to take a step back and ask 'what are we doing that has led to this?' - following on from widespread suspicion that this crash was no accident, those commentators have already framed it as a response to Russia's actions in Syria and Ukraine - even a justified response.

Why British Haste on Plane Bomb Theory?

Cameron and Obama are evidently being fed intelligence assessments of a bomb being stowed in the airplane's hold by terrorists.

British officials have made an unseemly leap to speculate on a terrorist plot in the Russian airliner crash over Sinai last weekend.

And Russia has understandably reacted furiously to the speculation, saying that it is too early to make such an assessment when crash investigators have not even compiled, let alone evaluated, evidence.

American officials, including President Barack Obama, are also now echoing the British claims of a bomb on the plane. The question is: why the haste?

NATO Invades Spain

The notion that the Pentagon would dare declare its own no-fly zone over northern Syria to protect a gaggle of “moderate rebels” from Russian and Syrian Arab Army (SAA) bombing is preposterous.

Fresh from its thunderous humiliation by the Taliban; its “liberation” of Libya for the benefit of militia hell; and while Russia was bombing the hell out of a Salafi-jihadi/”moderate rebel” constellation in Syria, NATO – in search for a “360-degree” response to Russia – resorted to invading… Spain.

The British, US, and French media are all screaming "terror attack" and cite each other as their authoritative source. The source is always an anonymous "person with access", or "knowledgeable person." But we are not seeing direct quotes from the official investigation itself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Except that the official investigation reported no such thing, saying that there was a sound that suggested abnormal flight just before contact was lost.

BEX ALERT - British Starburst missle took down Russian plane - no bomb

Someone within US intelligence called the Michael Savage radio show Wednesday, November 4 and said the bomb story is false. Obama & Putin know it was a British Starburst missile traveling at mach 4 fired by either Saudi or ISIS fighters using a hand held launcher.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only problem is that the Starburst, like the Stinger, can only reach about 9000 feet. The Starburst uses a laser guided system in which the operator has to keep a laser on the target for the missile to follow. The laser bean diverges into a cone to make that easier, but because of this, the laser power weakens considerably at distance and the reflected laser cannot be detected by the missile seeker.

We hope the situation will mend in the near future, which is in the interests of both countries." He said Cairo was not yet ready to comment on the situation. "The cabinet, the ministers and our ambassador to Russia are assessing the situation," he noted. He said he hoped this decision would be revised. "In any case, we, on our part, are ready to offer any possible help and support any initiatives and ideas on that subject that would be advanced by our Russian friends so that we could live through this difficult period," he said.

Russia hits out at Charlie Hebdo over crash cartoon

Russia has heavily criticised French magazine Charlie Hebdo for two cartoons depicting the Sinai air crash in which 224 people, mostly Russians, died.

One cartoon shows debris falling on a member of Islamic State (IS) with a caption reading: "Russia's air force intensifies its bombing."

In the other, a skull and body parts of victims are depicted.

Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Vladimir Putin, called the cartoons published by the satirical magazine "sacrilege".

"This has nothing to do with democracy or self-expression," he said.

RAW: Footage ISIS Claims Moment Shoot Down Russian Plane Flight 9268 in Egypt

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If at first you don't succeed, lie, lie again. Flight 9268 was reported by radar to be traveling at 400 knots when the incident occurred. From the smoke plume in this video, it is obvious the plane in this video is flying much slower than that. and in this age of digital cameras and cell phones with automatic focus, the fact that this video is so blurry tells you someone blurred it intentionally to hide something, such as this not actually being a passenger jet at all.

UK cancelled Sharm flights 'to put pressure on Moscow over Syria air strikes'

A senior Russian politician has accused the UK of suspending flights to Egypt to pressurise Russia over its Syria policy. The claims come after US and UK officials claimed the plane could have been brought down by a terrorist bomb.

Konstantin Kosachyov, who is chairman of the foreign committee in Russia's upper house of parliament, said that the decision was made to "put pressure" on Russia over its air campaign against rebel groups in Syria.

'Powerful explosion' brought down Metrojet, probe finds

A source close to the Egyptian investigation of the black boxes has said that the cause of the plane crash that killed 224 people is looking more like an explosion - but it is unclear if it was caused by fuel or a bomb.

They also said that investigators are studying sand from the plane crash site for signs of a bomb attack.

Additionally, a judiciary source in the investigation team said "the cause of the crash is an explosion at the engine. The reason of the explosion will be determined on the examination of the crash site and the test of the bodies".

ISIS Forgot How They Brought Down the Russian Jet

This entire story is so obviously made up.

When I say "made up," please don't get me wrong here. I know we live in a world where the lunatics running the asylum would blow up 224 innocent civilians without a second thought to continue their agenda (which in this case appears to be a completely orchestrated proxy war with Russia they want to ramp up into a completely orchestrated World War III).

It's just that what they are trying to make us believe happened in the case of this Russian plane crash is such complete and utter bull.

On top of that, since our intelligence chief was just saying IS didn't do it, only to have some of our government sources come out today and say no wait they did, just proves that the entire post-9/11 security apparatus they've built up around everyone is completely worthless by their own (totally unbelievable) version of the story!

Stoking Fear of Flying to Russia

Comments now making headlines are pure speculation - irresponsible until at least early investigative results are known. Russia’s assessment will be definitive.

Yet major media reports now circulating say US and UK sources claim information they have suggests a bomb planted aboard the aircraft downed it.

AP: “Bomb May Have Downed Russian Jet, US, UK Officials Say.”

The New York Times published the AP report.

Reuters: “Bomb by Islamic State likely caused Russian plane crash: security sources”

Washington Post: “Britain suspends flights from Sinai, citing bomb fears”

It’s a short leap to suspending flights to Russia or discouraging travelers from going there. Would fear-mongering follow a US airliner crash, whatever the possible cause? Normal activities always resume.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is hard to see the Metrojet crash as justification not to fly to Russia as in the case of a bomb, it is the departure airport in Egypt that would be seen as the scene of the crime, not the destination in Russia which was never reached.

BEX ALERT - US intelligence: A bomb planted by ISIS most likely brought down the crashed Russian plane

The intelligence is reportedly based partly on monitoring of internal ISIS messages.

Islamic State, which controls swathes of Iraq and Syria and is battling the Egyptian army in the Sinai Peninsula, said again on Wednesday it brought down the airplane, adding it would eventually tell the world how it carried out the attack.

Investigations are ongoing, however, and US and European officials haven't made any formal conclusions yet.

"There is a definite feeling it was an explosive device planted in luggage or somewhere on the plane," an unnamed official told CNN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this point it is very obvious that "terror" is being pushed very hard even though the "evidence" presented by the west (who are not actually involved in the investigation of the crash) is flimsy. This isn't reporting; this is a sales pitch! This feels like a propaganda campaign. Leading to what? The new 9-11 Lindsey Graham was talking about in Congress while pushing for more wars?

Russia complains about lack of Egypt crash information from Britain

The Russian foreign ministry complained about Britain's failure to hand over information about Saturday's deadly plane crash in Egypt, after London said there was a significant possibility that Islamists had planted a bomb onboard.

"The British government has not given us any information about the plane crash," Maria Zakharova, a foreign ministry spokeswoman, told reporters, according to the TASS news agency.

"If they have information and they are not presenting it that is shocking," she added, saying it was surprising that the representative of a foreign government rather than experts were putting forward theories about the plane's fate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So far, the claims that there was a bomb on board are admitted to be based on "timing", supposedly intercepted chatter, and the videos (some of which are obviously fake) claiming ISIS shot down the plane. Russia asks for Britain's proof there was a bomb and is refused! Both Egypt and Russia are saying the plane suffered a mechanical failure, yet the west is pushing this terror theme as hard as they can. One is left wondering if some false-flag attacks on airplanes are being planned and someone decided to seize in a genuine accident to "pre-sell" that false-flag.

Revelations Over Cause of Russian Plane Crash Deal Humiliating Blow to Egypt

Britain announced it is halting Sinai flights as Egyptian President Sissi arrived in London; inauspicious timing suggests that there is solid evidence that bomb brought down Russian passenger jet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note the comment that the "suspicious" timing is the basis for "suggesting" there was a bomb. This is pure spin, and the terrorist angle is being pushed very hard right when Wikileaks Ukraine is saying there are plans for a false-flag and Lindsey Graham is claiming to know that the next 9-11 is coming From Syria.

If I were the suspicious type I would be thinking there is a new false-flag terror hoax in the works to try and re-ignite war fever in the American people!

Did a U.S. Sentinel Drone Hit Doomed Russian Metrojet?

Look, the U.S. has been saying for years now that drones are presenting a threat to air traffic. And that’s the smaller ones, the size of pigeons and hawks that they’re talking about. In fact, at a recent Southern California wildfire, firefighters couldn’t bring in air tankers due to private drone traffic around the scene. The drones that the U.S. military uses are substantially larger. Therefore, if an airliner struck a drone the size of the ones the U.S. military uses, it would certainly be capable of fatally disabling the aircraft.

Egypt is Flooding Gaza Border Tunnels With Seawater, Poisoning Water Supply

Egypt has been pumping salt water from the Mediterranean into Gaza's underground tunnels, which Cairo says have been used to smuggle weapons to Islamist insurgents in the Sinai desert.

But more than destroying the tunnels, the flooding is contaminating water supplies and threatening to wreck farmland and spread disease, Palestinian officials say.

"One cubic meter of seawater pollutes 40 cubic meters of underground water," said Tamer al-Sleibi, a water department director in Gaza.

He worries that the water could weaken the foundations of homes and spoil the land for agriculture. Additionally, as the water turns stagnant, mosquitoes and other disease carriers will breed.

Towards a reversal of the situation in the Near East

The days of the « Arab Spring » are almost over. As of now, the White House and the Kremlin are redesigning the contours of the « Greater Middle East ». However, their agreement, which was concluded before the Russian military intervention in Syria, could still be modified by the changes in the balance of power. There is no proof that Moscow will accept the stabilisation of Syria or ignore the partition of Turkey and Saudi Arabia which are soon to begin. In any event, the coming upheaval will modify the status quo which has been in place for the last five years. Most of the powers implicated are therefore scrambling to change sides before the other players.

Russian plane crash in Sinai: Flight recorders reveal ‘unusual sounds’ moment before jet disappeared

The disappearance of the Russian airliner which crashed in Sinai on Saturday was preceded by sounds in the cockpit “uncharacteristic of a standard flight”, according to Russian media.

The Interfax news agency quoted officials in Cairo as providing a first insight into audio recordings from the Airbus 321’s “black box” recorders.

They reported that after a period of routine discussions between crew members, “the recordings show sounds uncharacteristic of a standard flight precede the moment of the airliner’s disappearance”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, something altered the plane's flight characteristics, but did not produce an explosive sound which would have been captured on the recorder before the sounds "uncharacteristic of a standard flight."

Recall that the altitude data provided by showed a sudden climb preceding the dive. This and the recorded sounds would suggest that the tail of the aircraft started to separate, starting at the bottom of the fuselage. This would lower the angle of attack of the horizontal stabilizers, which in turn would cause the aircraft to climb. The added turbulence from the out-of-alignment empennage would account for the sound.

Fatigue Crack Might Be Cause of Deadly A321 Crash in Egypt

"I saw the APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) is somewhere in the desert, separated from the main wreckage, and you can see a clear cut, as if this part was separated from the aircraft like by a saw.. So it’s definitely not a sign of an explosion. It could be a fatigue crack," Karel Mundel, a Czech pilot employed by the Airbus Company, stated after watching a video of an aerial view of the wreckage of the plane.

Russian plane 'broke up in air' before Sinai crash

Russian aviation official says inspection of wreckage in Egypt shows plane broke apart but this does not necessarily indicate bomb.

Russia’s transport safety watchdog, Rostransnadzor, said it had ordered the Kogalymavia airline, which is also known as Metrojet, to ground its fleet of Airbus A321s until the cause of the disaster was established, according to the Russian news agency Interfax.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Russians get the benefit of the doubt here, because from Russia's point of view, the plane being brought down by ISIS justifies escalation of Russia's activities in Iraq and Syria.

Satellite Shows Heat Flash When Russian Metrojet Plane Crashed, But No Missile: U.S. Officials

A senior defense official told NBC News late Monday that an American infrared satellite detected a heat flash at the same time and in the same vicinity over the Sinai where the Russian passenger plane crashed.

According to the official, U.S. intelligence analysts believe it could have been some kind of explosion on the aircraft itself, either a fuel tank or a bomb, but that there's no indication that a surface-to-air missile brought the plane down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As this article points out, the exploding aircraft itself would produce a heat flash, but the propaganda push is still towards act of terror, both to bolster the war fever and (from Metrojet's point of view) block potential liability and negligence lawsuits. At that point in its flight, the aircraft would have still had half of its fuel load still in the tanks.

Funny how quickly we get the black box and satallite data as compared with MH17, isn't it?

Heat flash over Sinai prior to Russian plane crash reportedly detected by US satellite

Just before a Russian passenger airliner crashed in Egypt’s Sinai on Saturday, a US infrared satellite reportedly detected a heat flash in the same vicinity, indicating that an explosion may have happened on board.

The US intelligence community believes that a fuel tank or bomb may have been the source of the heat signature, NBC News reported. The same satellite ruled out a missile attack, as it didn’t detect a heat trail that a rocket engine would have produced, the channel’s source said.

The heat flash may not be related to the crash since the Sinai Peninsula is a volatile place with regular military activity, a Pentagon official told ABC News.

There is growing speculation and versions about the cause of the crash over Sinai

Crashed in Egypt Airbus hit the runway tail when landing in Cairo in 2001. Information was confirmed in "Kogalymavia". Such contact is considered an incident. But after years later the depressurization could occur. Similar case the in 1985 with the aircraft of Japanese airlines and in 2002 with "Boeing 747" of Chinese airlines. In both cases, the planes broke up in the air. The reason - the poor maintenance after the tail touch the runway for a few years before.

"Some, perhaps, elements of a received residual deformation, which was undetected during inspection and repair. It is quite possible, therefore, for these years that have passed, 14 years after the incident, has accumulated some fatigue permanent deformation, and it could happen," says the honored pilot of the Russian Federation Sergey Kruglik.

Anti-New York Times / 11/1 Russian Plane Crash?

We here at The Anti-New York Times have always been averse to jumping to hasty conclusions. But we have no qualms about quickly forming hypotheses based on preliminary data, possible motives, means, and known historical precedent.

With regard to the Halloween crash over Egypt of Russian Airbus A321, operated by Metrojet, we hereby present some pieces of the puzzle that appear, at this point - to lead to a 'conspiracy theory' involving 'the usual suspects' (cough-cough).

Webmaster addition: I reject the obvious propaganda that ISIS shot down the Russian aircraft, and am still leaning towards failure of the rear pressure bulkhead as the cause of the accident. But this article makes a suggestion that should not be dismissed out of hand which is that the plane was bombed by CIA/Mossad as "punishment" for Russia's success in Syria.

Terrorists, non-state actors had no capacity to down Russian plane, security & aviation experts say

While the investigation into the causes of the Russian passenger jet crash over the Sinai Peninsula continues, civil aviation and security experts agree that theories that the plane was downed by a militant group can be ruled out, despite terrorists making such claims.

All 224 people on board the Kolavia airline’s flight from resort area Sharm El-Sheikh to Russia’s St. Petersburg died after the aircraft crashed in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Saturday. Experts are still decoding the flight recorders, and the Russian Air Transport Agency has said that there is no point in hypothesizing about the cause of the crash until there is reliable data on the circumstances.

Did Accident From 14 Years Ago Doom Russian Plane Over Egypt?

What does, however, jump out from this particular airplane’s record is an accident that it suffered on November 16, 2001 while landing at Cairo (while owned and operated by Middle East Airlines). As it touched down the nose was pointing at too high an angle and the tail hit the tarmac – heavily enough to cause substantial damage.

Tail strikes like this are not uncommon. The airplane was repaired and would have been rigorously inspected then and during subsequent maintenance checks. Nonetheless investigators who will soon have access to the Airbus’s flight data recorder will take a hard look at what is called the rear pressure bulkhead, a critical seal in the cabin’s pressurization system. Images from the wreckage in the Sinai show parts of the tail and rear fuselage near the site of this bulkhead lying clear of the rest of the debris, suggesting a possible break-up in flight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There was an air crash in Japan some years ago which was caused by a faulty repair to the rear pressure bulkhead letting go at altitude.

What would be the motive for ISIS to kill a Russian plane over the Sinai? To hand Russia justification to start bombing one of their safe havens? What would ISIS have that can hit a passenger jet at MSL 335? It is too soon to know what happened, but clearly all of the propagandists are already cranking up the spin!

BEX Alert!!! - "ISIS claims responsibility for Russian jet crash"

ISIS has claimed responsibility for destroying a Russian passenger jet in response to Vladimir Putin's decision to bomb Jihadi targets in Syria, although both Moscow and Egypt have denied any possible terrorism link. . .

. . . It crashed in the Hassana area, south of Arish. Security forces discovered the crash wreckage in a remote mountainous area in a region containing many ISIS-affiliated terrorists.

Egyptian sources are claiming that wreckage has been spread over a three-mile area while an ISIS-affiliate has tried to claim responsibility for the disaster.

According to the statement: 'The soldiers of the caliphate succeeded in bringing down a Russian plane in Sinai.' However, Russian transport ministry sources dismissed the claim suggesting 'they cannot be accurate'.

Russian airliner with 224 aboard crashes in Egypt’s Sinai

A Russian airliner carrying 224 passengers and crew crashed in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula on Saturday, and a security officer at the scene said most passengers appeared to have been killed. The Airbus A321, operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia under the brand name Metrojet, was flying from the Sinai Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg in Russia when it went down in a desolate mountainous area of central Sinai soon after daybreak, the aviation ministry said.

A Russian plane carrying more than 200 passengers from the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh has crashed in central Sinai, killing all of those on board, Egyptian officials have said.

The jet, operated by the Russian company Kogalymavia and branded as Metrojet, had initially been reported as being “completely destroyed with all on board likely to have died”, according to a security officer from the search and rescue team.


Destined for St Petersburg, the plane was carrying 224 people, including 17 children and seven crew members.


Northern Sinai is home to groups of Islamist militants, many affiliated to Islamic State, but there were no indications the plane was shot down, Egyptian security sources told Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even though the Egyptian authorities are saying there is no evidence of a shoot down, this article tries to imply a link with Islamic Jihadists, while known propaganda front Debkafile is already claiming the plane was shot down by a missile!

Here is a possibility we should consider. While the Egyptian authorities are saying there is no sign of an outside attack, it is too soon to rule out an on-board sabotage such as likely brought down Ron Brown's aircraft. The plane's flight path would have taken it over the eastern Mediterranean right off of the coast of Syria. Had the plane crashed there, it could have been blamed on Syria to strain relations between Damascus and Moscow. I wonder if this aircraft was delayed leaving the airport.

Politics Extension of US-led War on Syria

If Washington and its allies were sincere about a political resolution to the conflict then why don’t they reaffirm their commitment to the Geneva Communique?

Russia’s military intervention in Syria is proving a decisive turning point in stabilizing the government of Bashar al-Assad, while racking up serious defeats against the sundry extremist mercenary groups. That is the assessment of US top military officer General Joseph F Dunford. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the Senate Armed Services Committee this week:

«The balance of forces right now are in Assad’s advantage».

The Empire of Chaos is in a Jam

The no-fly zone in Syria already exists. It is run by Russia and Washington is unable to jam it.

NATO is desperate. The Pentagon is desperate. Imagine waking up one day in Washington and Brussels just to realize Russia has the ability to electronically jam — detect, trace, disable, destroy — NATO electronics within a 600 km range across Syria (and southern Turkey).

Imagine the nightmare of row after row of Russian Richag-AV radar and sonar jamming systems mounted on helicopters and ships jamming everything in sight and finding every available source of electromagnetic radiation. Not only in Syria but also in Ukraine.

Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, commander of U.S. Army units in Europe, was even forced to qualify Russian electronic warfare capabilities in Ukraine as “eye-watering.”

How regime changers use "nonviolent" tactics in a typical regime change operation.

The architects of regime change insist on the use of “nonviolent” tactics specifically because they pose a much thornier problem for the authorities than an outright revolt. If the government faces an armed uprising, it knows exactly what to do: put it down. But when the youth of the nation parades around in matching T-shirts (that have been mysteriously shipped in from abroad) shouting deliberately anodyne, aspirational slogans, and the entire happening takes on the air of a festival, then the government's ability to maintain public order gradually melts away.

When the conditions are right, the regime changers fly in the mercenaries with the sniper rifles, carry out a public massacre, and blame it on the government. These snipers appeared in Egypt in 2011 during the effort to topple Hosni Mubarak. They also appeared in Vilnius in 1991 and in Moscow in 1993. In Tunisia in 2011 they actually got detained. They had Swedish passports and Northern European faces. They said that they were there to hunt wild boar—with sniper rifles, in Tunis.

Let us not allow ourselves to be misled: all three types of political technologies the US uses against the rest of the world are types of warfare—hybrid warfare—and “nonviolent warfare” is an oxymoron. “Nonviolence” is a misnomer; with respect to Orange Revolutions, the correct term is “delayed use of violence.”

Secrets of the Syrian War: October 2015

The greatest secrets: the West has no people on the ground in Syria to take over the liberated territories; the Russians still seek partnership, Erdogan has bitten more than he can chew, and ISIS is a phantom, after all.

Russians are enjoying their Syrian adventure. Twenty days after its start, their entry into the Syrian war has paid off and brought some dividends.

Putin has been very popular before the war, with 86% support in the ratings, and now his public support has gone through the roof.

The tide is turning against Zionist extremism

These changing perceptions are the result of the rise of alternative forms of media, which have broken through the mainstream media’s imbalanced and inaccurate portrayal of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

For decades, the one issue that has been the exception to the broadly progressive streak within American Judaism has been Israel. The Jewish state has received unchallenged support by most Jews despite its decades-long occupation of the West Bank and the pursuit of policies toward Palestinians that, were they practiced by any other country, would be overwhelmingly opposed by American Jews.

Merkel’s Faustian embrace of Turkey

If the EU, under Merkel’s direction, accedes to Turkey’s demand for setting up safe zones in northern Syria, then that has ominous implications.

Turkey is pressuring Germany to create “safe zones” inside Syria as a “price” for alleviating the EU’s refugee crisis. It’s a Faustian bargain that could escalate the Syrian conflict, where NATO forces could end up pitted against Russia’s military.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hot-footing to Istanbul last weekend was capped with a U-turn regarding Turkey’s much sought-after membership of the European Union. In a surprise move, Merkel announcedthat she was now in favor of pushing for Turkey’s accession to the EU, when only a few weeks ago she had reiterated her opposition to its membership.

Rep. Jim Jordan vs. Hillary Clinton: Why Did You Tell Egyptians Benghazi Was a Terrorist Attack But Not The American People?

At a House Select Committee on Benghazi hearing Thursday, Rep. Jim Jordan introduced e-mails that show then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton calling the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya terrorism to family and the Egyptian prime minister.

Jordan then questioned why she told Americans the Benghazi attack was a response to an infamous YouTube clip mocking Muslims but e-mailed it was a terrorist attack to the Egyptian prime minister and family.

"You can tell the Egyptian prime minister it’s a terrorist attack, but you can’t tell your own people," Jordan scolded Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Basically, Hillary admitted to lying to the American people, and apparently thinks it is politically incorrect for us to notice it!

Attention news agencies of Planet Earth. This is an all points bulletin for your benefit: stop passing off video game footage as real-life-happenings. Yes, what seems like a thing that shouldn't be able to happen has actually happened several times in the past, from video game footage passed off as a terrorist attack to state news agencies passing off video game footage as a potential threat to a nation's enemies. Some nations appear to even be trying to take advantage of it all, such as when Russia tried to sucker world news groups into thinking that it had found proof that America is arming Ukrainians with video game footage of a weapons cache. And, yet, it keeps happening.
