Israel Is Dealing With Mount Meron. Now Investigate the Submarine Affair

(21.06.2021)

This isn’t the first time Gantz has tried to launch an inquiry into the submarines affair. In November, he appointed a governmental inquiry committee headed by retired Judge Amnon Straschnov. But Mendelblit ordered that panel to hold off on starting work because he said its mandate would overlap with the criminal investigation. Moreover, Straschnov resigned after less than a month after concluding that the committee’s work would be pointless due to limitations to its authority. Nevertheless, it’s impossible not to attribute the dissolution of this committee to the fact that Netanyahu and his power structure controlled Israel at the time.

Orden für Ägyptens Präsident – Semperoper distanziert sich von Semperopernball

Naumanns Meinung nach hat sich die afroamerikanische Jugend „sehr stark aus der Verantwortung gezogen“. Hier brauche es einen Durchbruch, der nur dadurch erreicht werden könne, „wenn man die jungen Afroamerikaner zum Militär einzieht, ihnen dort Disziplin beibringt und eine berufliche Ausbildung ermöglicht“. Aus freien Stücken würden sich Afroamerikaner keine Zwänge auferlegen, so Naumann.

Egypt’s Harsh Crackdown Quashes Protest Movement

These are among the latest political prisoners to overcrowd Egypt’s jails, arrested as President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi moved to quash the anti-government protests that first erupted across Egypt two weeks ago. The harsh crackdown — one of the largest waves of arrests in Egypt in decades — has ended the short-lived protest movement and put Mr. el-Sisi back in control, at least for now.

February 2015 Egyptian airstrikes in Libya: French jet deal

The beheadings came a day before Egypt signed a $5.9 billion arms deal to purchase 24 Dassault Rafale warplanes from France, making it the first foreign sale for the French jet. Egypt also bought a FREMM multipurpose frigate as well as missiles. The deal is believed by analysts to be an attempt by Sisi to both upgrade Egypt’s military hardware and to diversify its suppliers. Patricia Adam, president of the French parliament’s defense committee, said that Egypt needed planes quickly. „You just need to take a look at what’s happening at its border. They are especially worried by what’s happening in Libya,“ she said. French defense minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, said that the Copts‘ execution was one of the reasons why the Egyptian government wanted to boost its security.

Why Isn’t Oil-Rich Russia Helping Its Syrian “Ally” Survive The Fuel Crisis?

It’s seemingly inexplicable that one of the world’s top oil exporters and most masterful perception management practitioners wouldn’t gift its “ally” emergency fuel shipments as a humanitarian gesture or at least sell it what it needs under a deferred payment plan, especially when considering that it’s owned all of the country’s oil and gas infrastructure since last year and regularly ships large amounts of oil to the country in order to meet the huge demands of its fuel-hungry Aerospace Forces there. On top of that, Russia even sells gas to its American adversary in spite of the sanctions that its customer imposed on this industry,

Abschottung als Entwicklungshilfe

An den undemokratischen Zuständen in Ägypten stören sich weder EU noch Bundesregierung. Diktator Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi lässt das Parlament derzeit an einem Gesetz arbeiten, das ihm die Präsidentschaft bis 2034 garantieren soll. Regelmäßig gibt es Berichte von schwersten Menschenrechtsverbrechen. Auch im Hinblick auf alle anderen Staaten, deren Polizeiorganisationen zwecks Flüchtlingsabwehr von Deutschland oder EU gesponsert werden, berichten etwa Amnesty International und Human Rights Watch von immer wiederkehrenden willkürlichen Festnahmen, Folter und Zensur.

Die Bundesregierung weitet ihre Unterstützung für das ägyptische Militärregime und ihre Kooperation mit Kairo in der Flüchtlingsabwehr aus. Verhandlungen darüber haben Bundespräsident Frank-Walter Steinmeier und Kanzlerin Angela Merkel in den vergangenen Tagen mit dem ägyptischen Präsidenten Abd al Fattah al Sisi in Berlin geführt. Demnach wird die Bundesregierung Ägypten etwa in ökonomischen Belangen sowie mit Bildungsmaßnahmen für junge Ägypter unter die Arme greifen. Die Stabilisierung der Kairoer Regierung gilt als sehr wichtig, um über sie Einfluss im Nahen Osten und in Libyen nehmen zu können sowie die Kontrolle über den Suezkanal nicht zu verlieren:

Doktor Tod aus Damaskus?

Mittelost-Führer, die der US-Linie folgen und Israel freundlich gesinnt sind, werden von der amerikanischen Regierung und ihren zunehmend gezähmten Medien immer wieder als „Staatsmänner“ oder „Präsident“ bezeichnet. Es gibt den guten alten Präsidenten Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Ägypten, den Militärdiktator, der die einzige Demokratie dieser Nation zerstörte und ihr eine eiserne Herrschaft aufzwang. Aber wir werden von den US-Medien nie von den politischen Morden, den Verschwundenen, den Geheimgefängnissen und den Folterungen in Ägypten hören. Oder dass Ägypten seit der Ära von Anwar Sadat und Nachfolger Hosni Mubarak einer der drakonischsten Polizeistaaten der Welt ist.
