Nafeez Ahmed: “NATO is harbouring the Islamic State”

As part of our challenging the narrative of the “new 9/11” series we publish an extract from Nafeez Ahmed’s latest article, which can be read in full here.

Why France’s brave new war on ISIS is a sick joke, and an insult to the victims of the Paris attacks

We stand alongside Turkey in its efforts in protecting its national security and fighting against terrorism. France and Turkey are on the same side within the framework of the international coalition against the terrorist group ISISStatement by French Foreign Ministry, July 2015

The 13th November Paris massacre will be remembered, like 9/11, as a defining moment in world history.

The murder of 129 people, the injury of 352 more, by ‘Islamic State’ (ISIS) acolytes striking multiple targets simultaneously in the heart of Europe, mark a major sea-change in the terror threat.

For the first time, a Mumbai-style attack has occurred on Western soil — the worst attack on Europe in decades. As such, it has triggered a seemingly commensurate response from France: the declaration of a nationwide state of emergency, the likes of which have not been seen since the 1961 Algerian war.

ISIS has followed up with threats to attack Washington and New York City.

Meanwhile, President Hollande wants European Union leaders to suspend the Schengen Agreement on open borders to allow dramatic restrictions on freedom of movement across Europe. He also demands the EU-wide adoption of the Passenger Name Records (PNR) system allowing intelligence services to meticulously track the travel patterns of Europeans, along with an extension of the state of emergency to at least three months.

“We know that more attacks are being prepared, not just against France but also against other European countries,” said the French Prime Minister Manuel Valls. “We are going to live with this terrorist threat for a long time.”

Hollande plans to strengthen the powers of police and security services under new anti-terror legislation, and to pursue amendments to the constitution that would permanently enshrine the state of emergency into French politics. “We need an appropriate tool we can use without having to resort to the state of emergency,” he explained.

Parallel with martial law at home, Hollande was quick to accelerate military action abroad, launching 30 airstrikes on over a dozen Islamic State targets in its de facto capital, Raqqa.

France’s defiant promise, according to Hollande, is to “destroy” ISIS.

The ripple effect from the attacks in terms of the impact on Western societies is likely to be permanent. In much the same way that 9/11 saw the birth of a new era of perpetual war in the Muslim world, the 13/11 Paris attacks are already giving rise to a brave new phase in that perpetual war: a new age of Constant Vigilance, in which citizens are vital accessories to the police state, enacted in the name of defending a democracy eroded by the very act of defending it through Constant Vigilance.

Mass surveillance at home and endless military projection abroad are the twin sides of the same coin of national security, which must simply be maximized as much as possible.

“France is at war,” Hollande told French parliament at the Palace of Versailles.

We’re not engaged in a war of civilizations, because these assassins do not represent any. We are in a war against jihadist terrorism which is threatening the whole world.

The friend of our enemy is our friend

Conspicuously missing from President Hollande’s decisive declaration of war however, was any mention of the biggest elephant in the room: state-sponsorship.

Syrian passports discovered near the bodies of two of the suspected Paris attackers, according to police sources, were fake, and likely forged in Turkey.

Earlier this year, the Turkish daily Today’s Zaman reported that “more than 100,000 fake Turkish passports” had been given to ISIS. Erdogan’s government, the newspaper added, “has been accused of supporting the terrorist organization by turning a blind eye to its militants crossing the border and even buying its oil… Based on a 2014 report, Sezgin Tanrıkulu, deputy chairman of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) said that ISIL terrorists fighting in Syria have also been claimed to have been treated in hospitals in Turkey.”

This barely scratches the surface. A senior Western official familiar with a large cache of intelligence obtained this summer told the Guardian that “direct dealings between Turkish officials and ranking ISIS members was now ‘undeniable.’”

The same official confirmed that Turkey, a longstanding member of NATO, is not just supporting ISIS, but also other jihadist groups, including Ahrar al-Sham and Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria. “The distinctions they draw [with other opposition groups] are thin indeed,” said the official. “There is no doubt at all that they militarily cooperate with both.”

    Look you clever clogs guys are all wrong, its all dressing up a spaghetti mess with some vague so called planted facts. What is simple truth is that its a foreign benefits fraud proxy war mess, russian faction, islamic faction, shia faction, westzionist faction all scrambling to nick one benefit over the others as they are too coward to get boots on ground. The result is Muslims are being divided to shoot each other, and selling them weapons to do so, and divert attention from the natzi israel. when the carnage is over, the westzionist infected f.uk.usa. will win install muppets and proclaim democracy whilst stealing away the resources, and having killed 100s of thousands, and created 100s of thousands refugees, avoiding a proper Islamic State, and protecting israel, simple. When are we gonna stop this nonsense ? il vote for corbyn

    Amen to that rehmat1. Telling it like it is …

    Thanks for the link to the Emmanuel Todd book, Who is Charlie? Re: the “We Were CharLied To”©™ fraud, Kevin Barrett also has a book out : “We Are Not Charlie Hebdo” http://wearenotcharliehebdo.blogspot.co.uk/

    Re: Nafeez Ahmed. Your point about his apparent, prevarication is made often. I’ve met Nafeez and talked with him a few years back. He introduced the expert opinion of a retired British Lt. Colonel, ordnance / explosives expert into the “Heathrow Binary Liquid Bomb Bollox hoax” debate. Recall that little airport scanner / passenger info / fear fest promotion back in August 2006 ?

    … when it was alleged that multiple transatlantic airliners were going to be blown out of the sky by “Islamic terrorists”, miraculously mixing two, hence, “binary”, liquids, allegedly poured from ordinary drinks cans taken on board by said terrorists.

    The good Colonel disabused his audience of the essential flaw in the fulcrum of that particular myth, because that which was being alleged in the narrative of the 9/10 August 2006 Transatlantic Airliners Terrorist Plot = TATP ( geddit now ? ) – was simply not possible to do, whilst on board any passenger jet. I recall the headlines telling us about “mother’s being required to test their baby’s milk” at UK airport security …

    To my knowledge, the binary liquid meme was first introduced by film, in the Bruce Willis movie, Die Hard With A Vengeance, the 2nd in the series. I consider this particular “episode of Hollywood”, to be among the essential keys in our understanding of the terrorism scripts which have played out.

    A terrorist takes revenge for the death of his brother in a previous episode. This revenge manifests further threats of terrorism, sending the police / government / media / everyone on an allegorical, quasi cryptic / symbolic wild-goose-chace , racing against time whilst playing by the rules, in order to prevent further, phantom, lyrical, terrorism riddles.

    While all of that is going on, the terrorists are in the gold vaults of a NYC reserve bank, trucking out their gold bullion. Sound familiar ?

    Google DHWAV-UK for my thoughts and earlier research on the relationships on that subject. ( I posted all of my research as I understood it then, warts-an-all. A lot has changed in my understanding of the date relationships since those posts were made. )

    Following the links therein you will see that Nafeez pops up again, this time mentioning the all important – 1979 JCIT conference in Jerusalem. So named in honour of Benjamin Netanyahu’s brother, Yonatan Netanyahu who was killed in 1976 during the commando raid on the hijacked Air France passenger airliner on the tarmac in Entebbe, Uganda.

    Nafeez quotes the elsuive, “brilliant 1982 thesis” written by Philip Paull and characterises JCIT thus:

    “JCIT established the ideological foundations for the ‘War on Terror.”

    I agree.

    Nafeez’s books especially The War on Truth, have also been important reading for some time.

    Later, I also experienced a similar feeling of disconnect after listening to Nafeez deliver a talk on all of this at a London Islamic centre, where I was fed, freely btw, which was marvellous. It was good to hear him talk inside and again afterwards in conversation in a small group outside, where he was more open.

    He’s a clever chap who has contributed much.

    Re : Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, he’s the second al-Baghdadi in the AQI / IS / ISIL / ISIS narrative. The pop-up “End of Sykes-Picot ISIS Caliphate” declaration on 28 June 2013 is illustrative of the method.

    Hopefully, a somewhat clearer view : http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1062529154#post1062529154

    DISCLAIMER : – Ignore the David Icke link. It has nothing to do with anything. It’s just a black / white board to write on ok. I do not endorse nor publicise anything David Icke says. I have never met David Icke. I do note promote David Icke. I post there because, amidst the mandatory infestations on these boards, there is a constituent audience and it’s free. OK ? Good. You also might like to consider this because it might be the case that you have little idea of how much this information is censored on what are considered to be “alternative / conspiracy” forums etc. Years ago, Alex Jones’ Infowars banned me on my first post for example. Here in the UK I’d been posting quite freely in a quarantined, “not advertised on the front page links” section for many years until Tony Gosling, for some unknown reason, suddenly withdrew my posting priviledges there too. So, that’s the last time I qualify where this information is currently being posted.

    Nafeez Ahmad always beat around the bush without telling about the bush.

    9/11, 7/7, Charlie Hebdo, Paris Jewish Theatre shooting, etc. have all one thing in common – false flags to demonize Muslims and Islam as part of “Clash of Civilization” to benefit the Zionist entity.

    The Jewish controlled media has claimed that the attack was in response to French airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria since September 2015. The airstrikes were never meant to destroy ISIS but to counter anti-ISIS military campaign be the Syrian forces and Hizbullah fighters. The French operation was cancelled the day Russians started bombing ISIS military targets in Syria.

    Blaming ISIS for the recent attack is nothing but to divert public attention from Israeli terrorism in France. ISIS Caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was born into a French Jewish family. His real name is Simon Elliot and he received terrorist training from Israeli Mossad. In June 2014, Benjamin Netanyahu declared ISIS being kosher.

    French Jewish historian, Emmanuel Todd, in his recent book, Who is Charlie? has claimed that January 2015 terrorist attacks at Charlie Hebdo office and Jewish grocery market in Paris were an inside job to demonize Muslims and Islam.
