Change in the Middle East?

New Israeli government controls the agenda BY PHILIP GIRALDI • UNZ REVIEW • JUNE 22, 2021

The media focus on the Summit meeting between Presidents Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin has to a certain extent crowded out news about the new government in Israel, headed by hardline nationalist Naftali Bennett. In those media outlets that are actually discussing the change there is an odd sort of perception that Israel’s new government will have to adjust to the new regime in Washington. That would imply that the Israelis will have to mitigate some of their more outrageous behavior to accommodate themselves to Biden’s intention to take actions that will be disapproved of in Jerusalem, to include a possible rapprochement with Iran over its nuclear program and a White House reengagement with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) of 2015.

Change in the Middle East?

Human Rights Activist = Russian Spy?

The Polish security services once again confirmed that any deepened criticism of violations of the rule of law and of democracy in Poland MUST simply be done for the benefit of Russian intelligence. There just cannot be any other real opposition in Poland than the Russian spies themselves!

Address issues which Ukraine, the West’s client state, does not like and you could end up on a ‘hit list’. Because that’s apparently how flourishing democracies roll…

UK: Former MI6 chief behind faked “evidence” for Iraq war leading anti-China Wuhan lab conspiracy

Former MI6 chief behind faked “evidence” for Iraq war leading anti-China Wuhan lab conspiracy

It is not accidental that the Wall Street Journal author, Michael R. Gordon, was the same man who, along with Judith Miller, wrote the September 8, 2002 article asserting Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was seeking to build a nuclear weapon. The claim was a lie, funnelled to the pair by the office of Republican Vice President Dick Cheney. But before it could be irrefutably discredited, it had served its purpose in politically legitimising the Iraq war and occupation that has killed over a million people.

Likewise, the main public “intelligence” proponent of the Wuhan lab conspiracy in Britain is former MI6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove. He first made the claim in a Telegraph podcast in June 2020, shortly after Trump’s secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, said he had “enormous evidence” to back this up, before quickly backtracking.

Study alleges China created coronavirus in lab, tried to cover tracks

As I’ve pointed out, before:

Dalgleish/Sorensen published a prior study, blaming China, which was rejected twice before eventually being published in Cambridge University’s Quarterly Review of Biophysics Discovery. One of the authors, John Fredrik Moxnes (who asked to have his name removed) has ties to the Norwegian military. Sir Richard Dearlove (former head of MI6), featured in this article, graduated from Cambridge University, himself* (Original article is behind a paywall)

QRB Discovery is published by Cambridge University Press, despite what the Telegraph article stated (were they hiding something?!).

*Cambridge University seems to be a recruiting ground for MI5/MI6.
