Merciless Israeli mobs are hunting Palestinians

27 July, 2014

All eyes are on Gaza, where the death toll from Israel’s merciless bombing campaign has topped 1,000

But back in Jerusalem, where sixteen-year-old Muhammad Abu Khudair was burned alive by Jewish vigilantes in a “revenge killing” incited by Israeli politicians early this month, right-wing lynch mobs continue to roam the streets in search of Arabs to attack. 
Their most recent victims are twenty-year-old Palestinians Amir Shwiki and Samer Mahfouz from the Beit Hannina neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem. The pair were severely beaten into unconsciousness on Friday night by Israeli youths armed with iron bars and baseball bats. 
Mahfouz told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that he and Shwiki were on their way to the light rail when they were stopped by “a man [coming] from the direction of Neve Yaakov,”  an illegal Jewish-only Israeli settlement in occupied East Jerusalem. 
He said give me a cigarette. I told him I don’t have any, and he heard [from my accent] I’m Arab and went away, coming back with his friends, maybe twelve people. They had sticks and iron bars and they hit us over the head,” Mahfouz recounted. 
Haaretz added, “According to the victims, police officers that arrived at the scene did not call an ambulance, and they were instead evacuated by passersby to receive medical treatment at a Beit Khanina [sic] clinic. They were later rushed to Hadassah University Hospital, Ein Karem in serious condition.”
Though investigators believe the beating to be racially motivated, no one has been arrested. 
Police complicity

Israeli police have a pattern of ignoring hate crimes against Palestinians, as was the case immediately following the reported kidnapping of Muhammad Abu Khudair. Police did not immediately respond when his family called to report that he had been kidnapped and they actively thwarted efforts to locate those who murdered him by spreading false rumors that Abu Khudair was murdered by his family in an “honor killing” over his sexuality. 
Police also neglected to respond when Abu Khudair’s murderers tried to kidnap ten-year-old Mousa Zalum from the same East Jerusalem neighborhood two days earlier. 
When police aren’t busy ignoring Jewish vigilante violence against Palestinians, they are actively participating in it. 
On Thursday night last week, police teamed up with a Jewish mob assaulting two Palestinian men while they were delivering bread to grocery markets on Jaffa Street in West Jerusalem from their van. 
The men — identified by Ma’an News Agency as twenty-year-old Amir Mazin Abu Eisha and Laith Ubeidat (age not specified) — were encircled and beaten with empty bottles by a mob of some twenty to thirty Israelis, according to their attorney, Khaldun Nijim.  
Rather than assist the men as they were being attacked, Nijim told Ma’an, “The Israeli police stopped them in their van and pointed guns at them.”
Nijim added: “After they drove away a few meters, the police shot at them. They then stopped and were assaulted again.”
After barring an ambulance from transferring Abu Eisha, who sustained head and ear injuries, to the hospital for medical treatment, police detained the two Palestinian men at the Russian Compound police station close to the scene and charged them with “having a knife and obstructing the work of police,” according to Nijim. 
Abu Eisha and Ubeidat were eventually released on bail but are currently under ten days of house arrest. Meanwhile, several of the mob participants filed complaints against their victims, accusing the men of trying to assault them with a knife.
Racist activism on the rise
The same Ma’an article notes that in Jerusalem, “Jaffa street has been covered with flyers warning Arabs not to ‘touch’ Jewish women in recent weeks, as part of a right-wing Jewish campaign to prevent mixing among Jews and Arabs.”
The fliers were probably designed and distributed by Lehava, a fanatical anti-miscegenation group whose sister organization, Hemla, receives state funding to “rescue” Jewish women from romantic relationships with Arab men. 
Leanne Gale, an anti-racist activist living in Jerusalem, recently reported on her blog that Lehava has been holding nightly gatherings in West Jerusalem’s Zion Square and littering all of Jerusalem with stickers and fliers in Arabic that state, among other things, “Do not even think about a Jewish woman.”
Other catchphrases adorned on Lehava T-shirts and stickers include “Jews love Jews” and “The women of Israel for the nation of Israel,” according to Gale. 
Fascist mobs from Haifa to Tel Aviv
Violent mobs of anti-Arab fascists aren’t isolated to Jerusalem.
Last week in Haifa, the Arab deputy mayor and his son were brutally beaten by a mob of Jewish supremacists chanting “death to Arabs” and “death to leftists” in response to a rally against the Gaza onslaught. Police did nothing to stop the assault.
Similar fascist demonstrators have surfaced in supposedly liberal Tel Aviv as well, verbally and physically attacking Palestinians and leftists protesting the war on Gaza. 
Israeli blogger Elizabeth Tsurkov, who has been regularly attending and live-tweeting the racist attacks against anti-war demonstrators in recent weeks, heard a new racist chant mocking the more than two hundred children slaughtered by Israel’s merciless bombing campaign in Gaza: “Tomorrow there’s no school in Gaza, they don’t have any children left.” 
A new chant of the racists in Tel Aviv tonight: "Tomorrow there's no school in Gaza, they don't have any children left" (rhymes in Hebrew)

Incitement from the top
While calls for extermination have been rampant both in the streets of Israel and on Israeli social media for months, the “death to Arabs” sentiment is not isolated to vigilantes. 
Take for example Israeli lawmaker Ayelet Shaked, a rising star in the far-rightwing Jewish Home party, who recently called for genocide by slaughtering Palestinian mothers to prevent them from giving birth to “little snakes.”
Fast forward several weeks, and the United Nations is reporting an alarming rise in miscarriages and premature births in Gaza, where newborn infants are dying due electricity blackouts that shutdown their incubators.
Another Israeli public official inciting violence is Dov Lior, Chief Rabbi of the illegal West Bank settlement Kiryat Arba, who issued a religious edict declaring that it is permissible under Jewish religious law for the Israeli army to “punish the enemy population with whatever measures it deems proper,” even if that means “exterminat[ing] the enemy.”
Since then, portions of Gaza have been reduced to rubble in apocalypse-like scenes that look indistinguishable from the flattened cities of Syria. 
With all eyes glued to Israel’s destruction of the besieged Gaza Strip, little attention is being paid to the heightened levels of racism in Israeli society as demands for “death to Arabs” echo across the country with devastating consequences for Palestinians from Shujaiya to Qalandiya to Jerusalem to Haifa

Is Sergei Glazyev right?

For the sake of discussion, here is some discussion between Michael Green and Pepe Escobar.
Discussing Sergei Glazyev

Michael Green: Yes, well, I can see why the Saker and Pepe Escobar are asking this embarrassing question. After all, Glazyev presented 180 degrees out of phase from Putin in this piece. He even mentioned Nazis, which Putin, with his usual nod to the principle of gentlemanly comity, almost never does. A more honest way of framing the question, therefore, is not whether Glazyev was right. But, rather, why they were so wrong.

Let's look at that, shall we? In trying to install its missile batteries in the Ukraine, America and NATO showed us their overall strategic plan. The missiles, when launched, would take mere minutes (seconds?) to get to Moscow, which is 400-500 miles away. That would mean the Russians would have to make the fateful decision to retaliate in just three minutes, maybe even less. Why would anyone take that risk?

For one reason only, which would be to launch a first strike. There is no other reason possible, unless they were insane. This was not a random or insane strategy, however. It was bold and calculated. It relied on Putin to be Putin. We don't have to like our enemies to respect their daring or strategic skill on the grand chessboard. How reckless a move was it? It wasn't all that reckless, as long as Putin dithered and remained in character.

Unlike Pepe and the Saker, my confidence in Putin remains at an all time low. We saw where that led just recently, when he turned his back on the Ukraine. Things recently changed, yes, but America is now trying to insert a wedge between the separatists in the SE and Russia itself. Part of it, we know, will involve treachery and false flags.

Back to reality, however. When this presentation by Glazyev was first published several weeks ago, I thought it was right on the money. For what it's worth, I still do.

Pepe Escobar: Michael Green - exceptional good points. I'll be deconstructing Glazyev before I write my next piece. And yes, I was underestimating how spot on he is - especially after I had some DC feedback.

Off Pepe Escobar's timeline:

PE: Michael Green - exceptional good points. I'll be deconstructing Glazyev before I write my next piece. And yes, I was underestimating how spot on he is - especially after I had some DC feedback.

MG: Thank you, Pepe. I didn't mean to "paint it black" with an infinitely wide brush, however. Mostly, I love your articles and your wit/analytics. You're my go-to person on any number of things. You have, however, likened Putin to the "Lao Tzu of Chess".

The Russian energy deals notwithstanding, however, I still see the game in the Ukraine as having been more a game of Chicken.

Putin was damned if he did and damned if he didn't, so he mostly just dithered and lost precious time and opportunity. Now, no one suggested that he invade Kiev with tanks. The suggestion - and Glazyev's too - was that Russia step-up and provide the Resistance with appropriate weapons.

The few weapons the SE had until recently were assuredly not from Russia, even if the Saker suggested that they were. Here, I'm relying on what Streklov himself said. (As the leader of the SE forces, I'd deem him to be much more reliable than the Saker.)

Now, I get that you are waiting for Russia to do something after all these false flags, but as long as Putin does it tacitly and covertly - skulking around even in mentioning the word "Nazis" - he will have lost the real game that's being played.

What's particularly worrisome, since a lot of people have justified Putin's actions based on their fear of WW III, is that no one in the West takes Putin seriously any more. Consider the fact that the doctrine of MAD (mutually assured destruction) worked as a deterrent force only if one knew about the military capability of the other side and ALSO believed in its willingness to use it.

No one much believes in Putin's willingness to act along those lines any more, and people are walking all over him. He recently sent Syria a batch of ground to ship missiles. Then Israel LEAKED that it bombed that shipment, ostensibly in a test to see what Putin would do. He did nothing, of course, and predictably, the sarin false flag was raised within weeks. The same thing has happened in the Ukraine again and again and again.

Putin is very smart, to be sure, but he is no Glazyev. Putin, perhaps, is much more like Neville Chamberlain. Has he finally had some kind of epiphany? I dunno. This covert bullshit has to stop up and down the line, however, come what may.

PE: Michael, spot on on may layers. Putin's strategy, as I understood it in May in St. Petersburg, was that he didn't want to burn any bridges with Europe, business-wise. From now on this is about to change, because he's seen how Washington is succeeding in manipulating the poodles. Glazyev went Sex Pistols while Putin was trying a Barry Manilow. No more.

MG: Great metaphors as always, Pepe. I get the Barry Manilow part but the Sex Pistols may be overstated. What I mostly want to know is how Glazyev can be an "adviser" to Putin, when he appears to be so much at odds with Putin. IF Glazyev overstated the danger, do you suppose it might not be because Putin was radically underestimating it? Again, why would the Americans be wanting to place missiles in the Ukraine, just minutes from Moscow - giving it virtually no time for a measured response - if not because of wanting a first strike capability? Here, I think Glazyev is being a pragmatist, not a testosterone-junkie. And, absolutely, Putin is Barry Manilow. There is no changing one's character. As such, Putin is the Frog in that famous parable. Definitely not the Scorpion.

Kiev authorities trying to destroy evidence

Russia fears Kiev trying to destroy implicating MH17 evidence

31 July, 2014

Kiev authorities may be seeking to “destroy evidence” which implicates their role in the crash of the Malaysian jet, Russia's UN envoy Vitaly Churkin said, expressing concerns over the ongoing military operation in E. Ukraine in breach of UN resolution.

According to Churkin, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko promised a cease-fire in the disaster area,“but this promise was immediately broken, while Ukrainian officials have publicly announced a new task – to cleanse of the militias and take control of this territory," Churkin said in New York.
Such actions directly violate UN Security Council resolution 2166, which calls for a ceasefire and for thorough and impartial investigation into the Boeing tragedy under the ICAO umbrella, Churkin added.
We fear that Kiev authorities are moved by the intention to destroy evidence, implicating their role in the Malaysian airliner catastrophe,” Churkin said.
In order to ensure compliance with the ceasefire resolution and reinforce it, on Monday the Russian delegation to the UN proposed to adopt“a simple and unambiguous statement to the press.”
However, [Russia’s proposal] was unceremoniously blocked by some members of the Security Council, clearly not interested in strict compliance with resolution 2166,” Churkin explained.
Once again urging for a ceasefire in Ukraine, Churkin reminded the Council that the Netherlands, Australia and Malaysia have mobilized “considerable resources” to investigate the crash.
Russia in the meantime handed over its surveillance data of the disaster area of the Boeing 777 crash.
"We have passed the objective observation data of the disaster area to the international organizations, including the UN and the OSCE. We expect that others will also act concretely and constructively, instead of spreading unsubstantiated accusations and insinuations," said the Russian diplomat.
The Ambassador said that Russia is “offering all kinds of assistance to the investigation," highlighting that Russian Civil Aviation Authorities “promptly formulated questions that need to be clarified to reveal the full picture of the tragedy."
At the same time, Churkin pointed out that despite the willingness of anti-Kiev forces to cooperate with the efforts of the investigators, as noted by Australia's MH17 special envoy and former Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, the investigative team is still having trouble reaching the crash site.
One of the key provisions of the resolution, which was included at the insistence of the Russian delegation, is the requirement to immediately, in the area adjacent to the site of the disaster, cease all military action in order to allow for safety and security during the international investigation.”
‘Vicious circle of violence’

Churkin reminded that the world hoped that the Berlin Declaration of July 2 would be able to break the “vicious circle of violence,” but Kiev has shown no mercy since then.
However, in practice the cruelty of Kiev authorities in fighting is going through the roof. Donetsk, Lugansk, Gorlovka and many other localities have undergone massive bombardments, including indiscriminate Grad fire and aerial assaults,” Churkin said, pointing out that residential buildings, hospitals and transportation hubs are deliberately being bombed.

In most cases, Churkin pointed out, anti-Kiev forces were nowhere near those objects. He also raised questions about the reported use of ballistic missiles by the Ukrainian military, which is another clear sign of a “rampant military escalation.” Russia qualifies Kiev's actions as “a punitive operation against its own people,” the envoy said.
Russia is on the receiving end of the conflict, as hundreds of thousands refugees crossing into the Russian territory, more than 150,000 of whom already officially filed for temporary asylum and Russian citizenship, Churkin said. In the meantime Ukraine continues to shell Russian territory near the border, Churkin reminded.
The priority now, the diplomat said, should be to end the hostilities and to establish a peaceful negotiation process on the basis of the Geneva Declaration of April 17 and the Berlin Declaration of July 2.
‘Exclusionary’ diplomacy fails Palestinians

Touching on other issues, Churkin switched over to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, blaming the US for its approach to mediating the violent crisis.
As the practice shows, crises in Israeli-Palestinian relations often arise as a result of failure of US unilateral efforts to reconcile the warring parties. We have repeatedly pointed out that the 'exclusionary' method has exhausted itself,” he said, adding that a new mechanism of crisis resolution is needed to deal with this urgent matter.

Russia hopes for China to back idea of humanitarian mission for southeast Ukraine
Russia and China will multiply their efforts in the struggle against terrorism

31 July, 2014

DUSHANBE, July 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia hopes for China’s support to an initiative to set up a humanitarian mission for southeast Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a meeting with Chinese counterpart Wang Yi on the sidelines of a meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers from the Shanghai Co-operation Organisation states in the Tajik capital on Thursday.

Lavrov thanked Chinese people for the aid they offered to refugees from Donetsk and Luhansk regions currently staying in Russia. This friendly gesture will allow drawing attention of the international community to the tragedy breaking out in Ukraine, the minister said.

Russia hopes for China’s support to an initiative to set up a humanitarian mission for southeast Ukraine - Lavrov said at a meeting with the Chinese counterpart.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping are expected to meet at summits of the Shanghai Co-operation Organisation (SCO) in Dushanbe and the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation in Beijing, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with Chinese counterpart Wang Yi on the sidelines of a meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the SCO states in the Tajik capital on Thursday.

Chinese and Russian presidents will have new contacts,” Lavrov said, adding that these meetings are expected at a SCO summit in Dushanbe and an APEC summit in Beijing in September.

Russia and China will multiply their efforts in the struggle against terrorism, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov added.

The Russian foreign minister expressed his condolences to the Chinese people over a recent terrorist act in China.

This strengthens our common resolve for multiplying our efforts in the struggle against this evil,” Lavrov said


Deadly disease Ebola poses 'very serious threat' to Britain

Times of India,

30 July, 2014

LONDON: The Ebola outbreak in west Africa poses a "very serious threat" to Britain, foreign secretary Philip Hammond said on Wednesday, as England's public health authority warned the virus was out of control.

Hammond was to chair a meeting of COBRA, the government's crisis response committee, to assess Britain's preparations to cope with any possible outbreak of the disease.

One person in Britain has been tested for Ebola, the Department of Health (DoH) ministry confirmed, but the tests proved negative.

Reports suggested he had travelled from west Africa to central England.

Health professionals have been warned to be vigilant for signs of the deadly virus.

"As far as we are aware, there are no British nationals so far affected by this outbreak and certainly no cases in the UK," Hammond told Sky News television.

"However, the prime minister does regard it as a very serious threat and I will be chairing a COBRA meeting later today to assess the situation and look at any measures that we need to take either in the UK, or in our diplomatic posts abroad in order to manage the threat.

"We are very much focused on it as a new and emerging threat which we need to deal with."

Since March, there have been 1,201 cases of Ebola and 672 deaths in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Ebola can kill victims within days, causing severe fever and muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhoea and, in some cases, organ failure and unstoppable bleeding.

Dr Brian McCloskey, director of global health at Public Health England (PHE), said the body was closely monitoring developments in west Africa.

"It's clear the outbreak is not under control," he said in a statement.

"The continuing increase in cases, especially in Sierra Leone, and the importation of a single case from Liberia to Nigeria, is a cause for concern, as it indicates the outbreak is not yet under control. We will continue to assess the situation and provide support as required.

"We have alerted UK medical practitioners about the situation in west Africa and requested they remain vigilant for unexplained illness in those who have visited the affected area."

However, he added: "The risk of a traveller going to west Africa and contracting Ebola remains very low, since Ebola is transmitted by direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids of an infected person."

Methane hydrates in South Atlantic

First evidence of widespread active methane seepage in the Southern Ocean, off the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia


  • An extensive active seepage area was discovered north of South Georgia.
  • High input of organic matter leads to high rates of formation and emission of methane.
  • Gas emissions were restricted to glacially-formed fjords and cross-shelf troughs.
  • Seepage might be more common in polar and sub-polar regions than previously thought.

An extensive submarine cold-seep area was discovered on the northern shelf of South Georgia during R/V Polarstern cruise ANT-XXIX/4 in spring 2013.

Hydroacoustic surveys documented the presence of 133 gas bubble emissions, which were restricted to glacially-formed fjords and troughs. Video-based sea floor observations confirmed the sea floor origin of the gas emissions and spatially related microbial mats.

Effective methane transport from these emissions into the hydrosphere was proven by relative enrichments of dissolved methane in near-bottom waters. Stable carbon isotopic signatures pointed to a predominant microbial methane formation, presumably based on high organic matter sedimentation in this region.

Although known from many continental margins in the world's oceans, this is the first report of an active area of methane seepage in the Southern Ocean.

Our finding of substantial methane emission related to a trough and fjord system, a topographical setting that exists commonly in glacially-affected areas, opens up the possibility that methane seepage is a more widespread phenomenon in polar and sub-polar regions than previously thought.

Ukrainian troops lost 125 armored vehicles in eastern Ukraine in one day — source
Representatives of the Ukrainian armed forces have not commented on these reports so far

30 July, 2014

DONETSK, July 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Separatist militias in fighting with Ukrainian government troops near the city of Shakhtyorsk in the country’s east have put out of action 125 armored vehicles of the Ukrainian army, said Deputy Defense Minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Fyodor Berezin.

The enemy has lost a total of 125 armored vehicles in Shakhtyorsk yesterday, including tanks, infantry combat vehicles, armored personnel carriers,” the DPR official was quoted by the Novorossia news agency.

Representatives of the Ukrainian armed forces have not commented on these reports so far.

On Wednesday morning, a militia unit was fighting government troops to seize the outskirts of Shakhtyorsk, representatives of DPR armed forces said. Ukrainian government artillery had responded by setting an ammunition depot in the city on fire, the agency added.

Separatist sources claimed success already in their advance. “Militia fighters have taken control of Shakhtyorsk, and the National Guard, with armored vehicles, is hiding in thick foliage,” DPR representatives said, adding they had put a tank, an artillery system and a truck out of action.

One eyewitness report spoke of casualties among militia fighters

Update on MH17: Running a 

circle around the false flag 

(Or in sync with Petri 

Krohn's and Max van der 

Werff's findings)

30 July, 2014

Since virtually signs are pointing to the MH17 tragedy as a deliberate false flag  attack with only side standing to benefit from it, if it became successful, it is both possible and necessary to sketch the likely game and to put in sync with Petri Krohn's and Max van der Werff's latest analyses:

1. To pin the blame on the Novorossiya army required establishing a possible connection to a plausible weapon, that is, a Buk missile battery since NAF has no air force.

2. This means that it was needed to use a Buk missile to take down the plane.

3. However, to do that also required that the Buk missile be fired as close to the rebels-held territory as necessary since it would have been impossible to sneak a battery and a radar unto the rebels-held territory itself.

4. This was achieved by positioning a Ukrainian Buk missile battery in Zaroschenskoye, where the Ukrainian Army parked it just and only for that day, July 17, when the Malaysian airliner was shot down presumably by such a Buk missile.

5. The positioning of the Ukrainian Buk missile battery, documented by satellite images of the Russian Armed Forces and disclosed in Moscow on August 21, was made a mere 8 km south of rebels-held Shaktyorsk, which the junta tried to occupy on July 26-29.

6. In doing so, the US government and Western media used a deliberately very imprecise map issued by "the  Ukrainian Council of National Security and Defense:"

The map is especially greatly imprecise in the south-west part of the war zone, where it gives to the rebels significantly more territory than what they held there, as can be easily checked against any other maps and accounts. However, it is futile to expect the corporate media or Western talking heads, i.e. Kerry or Psaki, to have any desire to be precise on this account.

7. A better map showing the situation around July 17 is this one, even though this one too is not sufficiently detailed and thus does not show the Zaroschenskoye pocket. Map of July 17; but it allows a good comparison with the US/Ukrainian map and it shows well the bluntly striking attempt to add to the rebels a huge chunk of the territory in the south-west, which was and is in the hands of the Kiev regime and where its Buk missile battery was deployed just for July 17:

8. A more detailed map (as this one) shows not only where the Ukrainian battery in Zaroschenkoyoe was placed, but it also shows that the position was within a thin wedge conveniently, if not precariously wedged in-between rebel’s-held positions at that time—between Pokrovka and Blagodatnoye.

9. Only on July 23-24, the Ukrainian Army was able toenter the village of Blagodatnoye, while it attempted to storm Pokrovka on July 30. („И 23 июля завязали бои за исходные районы этого наступления – Дебальцево и Благодатное. 24 июля им удалось окончательно закрепить за собой Благодатное …”

10. Having positioned the Buk missile battery there, it is also very likely that, if the Ukrainian Army fired a Buk missile, it would have come from there. This would also be consistent with the fact that the US refuses to publish its own satellite photos of what it claimed is its intelligence or established fact that a Buk missile was fired, while, then on the briefing for US media by “US intelligence officers” on July 22 in the aftermath of the briefing by the Russian military offices the day before, a new version of the event was that people in Ukrainian uniforms or “a Ukrainian defector” or “Ukrainian drunken soldiers” might have fired the missile “by mistake.”

11. From the available information and the ongoing discussions, it does seem that the Malaysian Boeing was hit while passing Snezhnoe or, at least, that an attempt to down the plane was made when the plane was over Snezhnoe.

12. In order to create the necessary footprint and the false flag narrative, we can assume, and it is consistent with the information that is available, that the Ukrainian Buk missile was fired against the Malaysian airliner.

13. According to the Russian Defense Ministry’s briefing, when the plane was struck, it was at a point of trying to return to its flight path after suddenly veering 14 km off its path to the north-east. The plane would be thus coming from north-east rather than from north-west.

14. According to Aleksandr Zhilin’s analysis (to which I referred earlier), the plane was proceeding straight and, when hit (by a jet fighter) made a U-turn to the left over Grabovo.

15. According to Petri Krohn though, the plane made not only a U-turn, but almost a circle and crashed when flying from the west and not from the south-east. According to this version, the cockpit, which fell in Rozsypne several kilometers from west off Grabovo, was lost first  and then the main body of the plane with the wings and the engines felled in Grabovo.

16. To adjudicate between Krohn’s and Zhilin’s version should not be the difficult. First, it does make sense, if the cockpit or front of the plane was hit, for this part to fall first, since the inertia would carry the rest of the plane further (the reverse does not appear to be likely). Second, the direction of the wings and the engines should also indicate from which direction the plane was crashing. From available photos from Grabovo, it appears that the plane was, indeed, coming from the west. And thus it seems that Zhilin was mistaken with respect to the direction of the U-turn and that Krohn is right. Zhilin’s version does account for the semi-circle made by the plane to the east and back, as outlined in the Russian Defense briefing.

17. The crash site is otherwise not only some 20 km past or back from Snezhnoe, the furthest (southern) known point reached by the MH17 plane, but the direction of the crash site (west-east) is also at odds with the assumed north-west to east-south flight route of the Malaysian Boeing. These facts almost completely exclude the US official version of the story, in which the plane was hit by the rebels with a Buk fired from Snezhnoe and then fell (sideways) almost 25 km in Grabovo/Rozsypne in front of Snezhnoe.

18. The sharp deviation of the plane to the east and back is, indeed, very strange and otherwise inexplicable. It appears that, for a while, the plane lost its navigation, coordinates, and GPS and did so right in the middle of the war zone. It is thus very hard to assume that the plane would be directed to make this “mistake” by Ukrainian air controllers or by the pilots themselves. If this was, as it appears to be a false flag operation from the very beginning, then it would be also possible to assume that this sudden deviation from the course was not a mistake, but that it might have been somehow a part of the plan. By making this deviation over the war zone, it appears that the plane was saying or, better said, even baiting: “I am a strange plane: Would any civilian plane do this? Please shoot me!”

19. By making the deviation, which was then putting the plane more straight or head-on with respect to the Ukrainian battery in Zaroschenkoye than sideways (or at an almost right angle: Zaroschenkoye versus the original flight path from the north-west), it might have been possible to “fake” the direction and trajectory from which the missile was fired—aligning the new flight path with Zaroschenkoye instead of Snezhnoe in order to present the latter for the former.

20. The deviation of the plane 14 km off and (almost) back before being hit would almost indicate that, when the deviation started, the pilots were either no longer alive or that the plane was either flying at remote control or on re/pre-programmed auto-pilot, whereby the deviation was executed.

21. After this hit or attempt, the plane apparently traveled another 50-70 km (making the loop), which would take some 4-5 minutes with its travel speed of 900km/h. But since the plane's speed falling to 200km/h, the time would take few additional minutes.

22. The available information, especially Krohn’s investigation and analysis, thus seems to be indicating that, if a Ukrainian Buk missile was fired, it did not fatally destroy the plane. The plane started losing quickly speed and altitude, but was still capable of staying in the air and continuing on its new circular route/deviation.

23. At this moment, as the Russian Ministry informed, from the left of the plane, a Ukrainian military fighter appeared, climbing above 5000m towards the plane and then staying in the vicinity of the Malaysian airliner for at least another 4 minutes.

24. The damage to the cockpit and the wings does seem to indicate that the coup de grace delivered to the Boeing was then executed with either a fighter’s cannon (Krohn's preference) or with a Ukrainian jet fighter's air-to-air missile(s), which then caused the front part to sever and fall in Rozsypne before the rest of the plane crashed in Grabovo. Since the distance between the cockpit and the rest is about 2-3 km, one can also assume that the plane was gunned down not that far from these two places. 


A number of stories are coming these days from (Trans-) Carpathian Rus about the spreading revolt against the war and the so-called 3rd mobilization declared by Poroshenko, which, in practice, means forcibly rounding up of males in public transportation and on the streets and whisking them to the east as oligarchs' cannon fodder to die for the sake of new Nazism and NATO's power-drunken Drang nach Moscow.

The people in this part of Western Ukraine are no longer just anxious, they are now also angry and they started setting up check points on the highways, blocking traffic, which connects Ukraine with (a part of) Central Europe.

Importantly, they are growing in numbers and they are also organizing themselves. Full and complete boycott and refusal of Kiev's oligarchic tyranny is in order.

Ukrainian oligarchs are no longer killing only the economy and people's livelihood, they are now on killing people themselves with their own private armies and Banderite storm troopers.

If Ukraine is to save itself from its current fascist tyranny, the anti-war movement would need to turn into a coordinated inter-regional movement and start taking local power into their hands.
