Difficulties Looming?

Is The Timing Of Certain Current Events Purely Coincidental - specifically...

1) Israeli F-35s overflew locations in Syria & Iran undetected, including the site of Iran's alleged nuclear goings on.

2) Netanyahu spoke about Iran's alleged nuclear aspirations - (Casus Belli  )

3) The U.S. backed out of the Iran nuke deal & announces strict sanctions.

4) Iranian missiles were allegedly launched into Israel from Syria.

5) Israel launched the largest air strike in Syria since the '73 war.

6) Israel will celebrate its 70th anniversary of becoming a nation on Monday.

7) And the U.S. will open it's embassy in Jerusalem.

8) Ramadan (and presumably the attendant annual spike in terrorist attacks) begins on Wednesday. 

...or is it just me? dunno
Does anyone else see any potential problems here?

Don't worry given time it will receive all the lunatic attention it can generate. Some will see a conspiracy to dominate the area, others will see the need for intervention. I can think of at least one here who will predict armageddon and the end of the world. It also might be a good excuse for the political types to scare everyone into following their version of events and consequences.

The truth is that these countries and the people in them have been doing this sort of thing for thousands of years. There has never been peace in the Middle East and I do not think that there ever will be. It's just business as usual.
Oh no...its definitely all related for sure...but I guess you cant just do nothing because it might cause problems with your enemies...that's no way to live and you can only deal with the fall out as it comes....beer

You may be even more correct than you think, groucho. sigh

This is a very brief (3 1/2 minute) history of the region...

P.S. I'm going right now to WPR for my show list.With the popcorn and root beer.wave
As implied in the OP, I agree M4 - the events are related & have a purpose.
They're connected parts of what will be a false flag operation.
IMO

False Flag has been mentioned.
That will produce the knee jerk reaction - 'Crazy Conspiracy Theory' tinfoil hat roll eyes
But false flag operations have occurs & do occur...



The vid puts political spin on some of its conclusions.
Beyond that, the point is - it describes confirmed false flag attacks.
I believe the list could be lengthened and remain factual.

wave thanks again! I even listened to Fibber and Molly McGee ( salmon sent from Portland,by her ex-boyfriend a
millionaire)grin
Hello Miclee,wave I keep an eye on the news a lot, and am a history nut, ( okay you thought I was just a nut,rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing ) but I do tend to agree with you, there is difficulties looming.
As for terrorists attacks looming, didn't a family of suicide bombers , just strike in Indonesia the other day,doh An entire family , mother father and sons , talk about extremesdoh Is this a sign of things to come, or as you say difficulties looming confused
I suspect some of the events may be intended to provoke extremists to violence.
To justify taking action/instigating a coup in Iran.
Some islamic nations may also wish to see a less radical regime in Iran -
notably the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.

I listened to that Fibber MaGee And Molly episode.
The salmon was large...a record large salmon, in fact.
So the MaGees invited their friends over for dinner.
To help them eat the record large salmon, you understand.
It was being flown in from Portland.
The plane was late arriving.
The guests were becoming quite hungry.
Strothmorton Gildersleeve made some snide remarks to Fibber.
The really funny part was that when the record large salmon finally arrived...
it was a stuffed salmon.
Mounted - like what you'd hang on a wall.
Mr. Guildersleeve was disappointed. He made a snide remark to Fibber.

Get to that 'comments' blog & let's do this thing, y'all.

"Oh no...its definitely all related for sure...but I guess you cant just do nothing because it might cause problems with your enemies...that's no way to live and you can only deal with the fall out as it comes...."

The dots certainly line up, M4.
That doesn't mean they connect, but I strongly suspect they do.
We'll know for certain - one way or the other - VERY shortly.

I'll put a imeframe to it -
Absolutely by the end of Summer.
Probably by mid Summer.
Possibly by the end of Ramadan - a month from now (June 14).

Just noticed -
That's also Flag Day in the U.S. It's a minor holiday that falls between between the patriotic high holidays of Memorial Day (May 28) and Independence Day (July 4).
It'd be relatively easy to rouse patriotic fervor.

I unquestioningly trust nothing we hear from any(!) of 'em.
Nothing.

Ash,

Thanks! We are excited and prepared for Ramadan here...could be tomorrow angel

Mic,

difficulties looming....I'm here in the Middle East, still feeling safe here so not that worried.

Funny how people from the other side of the world seem to be paranoid in what's going on here in the Middle East...some pray for our safety...that's very appreciated but many seem to be blinded to what;s happening all over the world...children and people dying everyday from killings, hunger, diseases...whom government and those who are in the position to help are turning a blind eye and deaf ears on like they don't matter. Middle East and terrorism are all over the media scaring people and turning people and religion against each other...but the real problem is the everyday life when/where poor and ordinary people need help but not getting any attentionsigh
"Middle East and terrorism are all over the media scaring people and turning people and religion against each other..."
That's the point of this blog, CH.
You've restated it and said it well.

I liked that history of the region video.thumbs up This song never seems to go out of style.

miclee ~ Agree, a litany of troubles, conflict, contempt, and others poking their nose in for gain.
It is such an intricate [can't find another word] problem. Even those who have studied Middle Eastern
politics have problems understanding the complexities.

Seeing a photo of Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner at the opening of the American Embassy in Jerusalem , all smiles and glamorous whilst only 70kms away, a bloodbath was taking place in Gaza with children and women being blasted with Teargass, rubber covered pellets. Horrendous, but not no surprises here, a Red rag to a bull as they say.

Crazy ~ Happy Ramadan, hard to do, I expect you eat Dates like the many muslims that fast here until sunset. sad flower Be safe.
I've liked it since it came out, wag.

Incredible how current it is now.
As you say - never goes out of style.

Even some of the vintage footage in the vid feels eerily current.

Great share! cheers

I should think that was why(!) it was both done & publicized gg.

Waving a red flag as a of false flag, one might say.

What gg & Patti said, CH.

miclee ~ not meaning to be a pessimist but I can see more trouble down the track. It was a senseless thing to move that Embassy. [which is not the title of your blog so I am digressing] but, it is a tactic, a well thought out one... it will incite anger, fear, an embassy in Jerusalem.

It's like you having tinnitus and me getting a dog and leaving it out in the back to bark all day ! a deliberate act of igniting an already tense and ready to explose scenario.

A good blog Miclee.

thumbs up
Crazyheart38
Thanks, GG!

I don't fast, not every Muslim fast but Ramadan is not just about religion...it's also about culture and family so I'm looking forward to itlaugh I love all the good things in every religion, I abhor the bad things but try to respect others who believe in them.

Been busy shopping and preparing for a big Iftar tomorrow ( if Ramadan starts tomorrow) a family thing, will be about 40 people so it's going to be a lot of food and funyay

As for the dates, I'm not a big fan but I love it when filled with nuts and sour creamthumbs up
Crazyheart38
Mic,

so many political problems all over the world, it's so down heartening...wasting all those money and energy on senseless things , they could be used to eliminate hunger all over the worldsigh

Middle East will always be the Middle East, land of war and chaos but people here are still living their life and will continue to do so for hundreds of years to come so I don't worry much about Middle East.
Crazy ~ I agree with you, all the money spent on arms , bombs could feed the world a thousand times over.
I understand Ramadan. One of the five pillars of Islam, and yes, not everyone fasts.

I think if you refrain from fighting, being nasty, being sinful, and all the other things that Ramadan stands for, then it is good.

Here there is some confusion regarding the start of Ramadan because of the Moons position.
A lot of the Muslim neighbours near me do Ramadan but many good muslims don't. Women with kids who have very busy lives walking them to school and looking after a baby etc.,

Either way, enjoy that gorgeous food. I think if I was a Muslim I would be very fat as I always find the food is so wonderful. I eat at the local Mosque and it is very cheap and wonderfully healthy and delicious food.
It is a place of hope and joy, because many Christians, Atheists, all kinds of people go there to eat and relax and we are welcomed by Muslims there. If only it could be like this all the time [on all sides]hug
"It was a SENSELESS* thing to move that Embassy. [which is not the title of your blog so I am digressing] but, IT IS A TACTIC A WELL THOUGHT OUT ONE...IT WILL INCITE ANGER, FEAR, AN EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM."
(* emphasis mine - mic)

NOT digressing, gg scold
Not by so much as a syllable; note that I included the relocated embassy in the list of events in the OP.

The 'sense(?)' of the move is a 'well thought out tactic' intended provoke a response - for propaganda purposes IMO.
Like Crazy's earlier comment it goes to the very heart of the blog.

Interesting discussion Crazy & gg!

Along the lines of the discussion - more 'nothing new under the sun.
It was written by Mark Twain in 1904.
He'd opposed U.S. involvement in the Spanish-American War (1898) and what he perceived at that time as the U.S. becoming imperialistic

Miclee,I actually mentioned I expected him to maneuver this with the hope that they will not deal with their own issues.
We are strategically planning for a stranger support base.I see nothing to scrutinize about his family. His birthday is in June.Expect that parade too.laugh
Sorry correction: hope THEY DEAL WITH THEIR HISTORICAL ISSUES. and let the rest of the world visit in peace.

*fingers in ears* lalalalallalalalalalalalaLALALALALA
. Perhaps inadvertently, President Trump’s decision has opened the door for much more frank discussion about an eventual Palestinian capital, and U.S. Embassy to Palestine, in East Jerusalem.

Long a taboo in both Israeli and American politics, the ice is beginning to break. White House officials reportedly informed Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman last month that Trump’s emerging peace plan would call for Israel to transfer four Arab neighborhoods in East Jerusalem to the Palestinian Authority. That’s a start.

The precise boundaries could be determined only in negotiations, and Israel would need to remain connected with key holy sites. Those talks may not happen under the current Israeli and Palestinian leadership, but openly discussing this necessary aspect of a realistic, conflict-ending two-state solution – which remains the United States’ strategic objective — will prepare the ground for when there are leadership changes.

Meanwhile, triumphalists in Israel and the United States think that the embassy move means that Israel has “won” the conflict. (As Axios’s Barak Ravid has reported, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is now demanding that the Palestinians accept any offer Trump puts on the table, suggesting he shares this view.) But these declarations of victory are premature. It is true that Israel is strategically stronger than ever, that its legitimacy is more widely recognized and that it enjoys gradual warming with a range of Arab states. These are all welcome developments. Yet however good that feels, the inexorable demographic dilemmas of how Israel can maintain both its Jewish and its democratic character while controlling all of the West Bank and its Palestinian population have not changed at all.

On this subject, the crown prince is a good example of the principle that “a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.” His statements — which betray his limited understanding of Israeli-Palestinian final status issues, the realities of Palestinian politics and the limits of Saudi influence — may delude some in Israel that the hard decisions can be avoided. But they can’t, and eventually, a future Israeli government will have to make some wrenching choices. Ongoing expansion of settlements outside of blocs that could be accommodated in land swaps only makes those choices harder.

Even the crown prince acknowledges that the Saudis cannot normalize relations with Israel without meaningful progress toward a two-state solution. If the conflict simply festers, Israel could squander the real opportunity for full integration into the region. So Israel’s own interests still require finding a path to end the conflict in two states, or at least to keep that prospect alive.

At the same time, some Palestinians insist they can increase Israel’s isolation by demanding one-person, one-vote and screaming “apartheid.” But this is not a winning strategy. Palestinians can hold out and refuse to tell hard truths to their own people about the legitimacy of a Jewish state, Israel’s permanence and the immorality of violence, but their ability to generate pressure on Israel is declining.

Continuing to refuse to negotiate — Palestinian leaders today even boycott talks with U.S. officials — will produce neither one state with full citizenship for West Bank Palestinians, nor relief for those in Gaza suffering under Hamas’s rule, nor crushing pressure on Israel. Rather, it will mean a slow, grinding perpetuation of the status quo-minus.

Palestinians need new leadership, particularly after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas disgraced and disqualified himself with a series of vile anti-Semitic canards. Unless those who follow him address the Israeli public’s legitimate anxieties about Palestinian intentions, their people will continue to languish while much of the world shrugs its shoulders, turns away from a hopeless cause and makes high-tech deals with Israel.

Nothing new to me.uh oh
The Palestinian issue is but a part of the picture, Patti...IMO.
When it's mentioned in recent news - protests or whatever - the stories almost(?) invariably bring up something about Hamas/Hezbollah/Brotherhood and such and then brings in...Iran,

If Palestinians can be goaded (or false flagged) into terrorist/threatening actions, it will be for publicity & as propaganda...against Iran...IMO
Will be? Hell. It's BEING done now!
Earlier today, I was with a buddy & a WPR/BBC news program came on. I bet him $100 to a hole in a doughnut what the news & spin on it would be -
Palestinian protests...right of return...people killed...and then - Hamas...Hezbollah...links to Iran.
Long story short - he owes me a hole in a doughnut.

For whatever reason - IRAN is the target!
It's being painted as the head of the snake; snakes are killed by cutting off the head, not the tail.
And for current intended purpose...the Palestinian issue is merely a useful propaganda tail...IMO.

So when Iran released American hostages in exchange for hundreds of millions (which we later found out was actually billions) of dollars, it was impossible to believe this transaction was not another concession by Obama officials if the alternative was derailing the Iran deal, aka war. And wouldn’t it be worth it to Obama officials to answer the demands of the Iranian government and release Iranian prisoners guilty of conspiring harm against America, if, according to them, the alternative was derailing the Iran deal, and therefore, war?

If Obama officials were willing to accept that money Iran would acquire due to the Iran deal would be used to fund its far-reaching terrorism operations, if Obama officials were willing to lay off Iran’s efforts to build a massive ballistic missile force, were willing to break U.S. policy about ransoms (predictably inciting Iran to nab more hostages), willing to free from prison dangerous men bent on harming the United States, the Politico report is entirely compatible with what we already know.

What’s thwarting an anti-Hezbollah effort when the alternative was derailing the Iran deal, aka war? And, to be clear, nobody believed the Obama administration was ever, ever considering war with Iran. This was just a hyperbolic construction to sell the administration’s precious deal, which legitimized Iran as an acceptable, indeed, recommended trade partner.

The Politico report is indeed a bombshell. But it’s really not surprising. The question we should all be asking at this point is, what other concessions did the Obama administration make that are out there waiting for more bold journalists to uncover?

Not only has UNRWA not helped to resolve the Palestinian refugee problem, it has amplified the problem. UNRWA was initially envisaged as a short-lived agency, but its mandate was perpetuated by declaring Palestinian “refugee” status hereditary, allowing its application to descendants of the original refugees.
"If Obama officials were willing to accept that money Iran would acquire due to the Iran deal would be used to fund its far-reaching terrorism operations, if Obama officials were willing to lay off Iran’s efforts to build a massive ballistic missile force, were willing to break U.S. policy about ransoms (predictably inciting Iran to nab more hostages), willing to free from prison dangerous men bent on harming the United States, the Politico report is entirely compatible with what we already know."


You want conspiracy theory? I'll GIVE you Conspiracy Theory!! tinfoil hat
If one entertains the idea that those actions were done with the intention of using them at a future date (such as the 'coincidence'(?) of Israel's 70th Anniversary, moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and the start of Ramadan) one might speculate as to the size & scope of the false flag presumed in this blog, and for how long and under how many U.S. administrations the plans for the false flag were being laid & implemented.
hmmm

This presumption would implicate the Obama Administration in laying the plans to overthrow Iran's theocratic regime.

Here's some vital information y'all can actually use...
Raise that possibility to a group of Obama lovin', Trump hatin' uber-libs.

Note the source of the vid. Bear in mind it was made for promoting a point of view.
Nonetheless, it lays out basic facts regarding the plight of the Palestinians.
And it begs the questions (among others)...
Who's responsible for the plight of the Palestinians?
For what reasons?
Who's been using them as political propaganda pawns for the past 70 years...and continues to do so?

I refer again to Crazy's earlier comment -
"Middle East and terrorism are all over the media scaring people and turning people and religion against each other..."

Crazy, I'm fairly certain you have NO idea of all of what's being put out by Western/U.S. media.
I'm amazed at how the rhetoric has been amped up just since this blog was first posted.

What's put out in so-called mainstream media is rather subtle.
The U.S. has what's referred to as 'AM Talk Radio' (search it).
Some of what I've heard there is much more heated - over the top...IMO.

cowboy
You might be able to hear what I'm referring to, Crazy.

Some of the AM Talk Radio programs are streamed on the 'net.
