    Does the Presidential Order on Financial Sanctions Against Those Promoting Terrorism Apply to Israel and Saudi Arabia?

    Statement from President Donald J. Trump Regarding Modernizing and Expanding Sanctions to Combat Terrorism

    National Security & Defense

    September 10, 2019

    I have issued an Executive Order to modernize and expand sanctions to combat terrorism. The Order enhances our ability to use powerful sanctions to target terrorists and their supporters and deprive them of their financial, material, and logistical support worldwide. Foreign financial institutions are now on notice that they risk sanctions if they knowingly conduct or facilitate any significant transactions with designated terrorists and terrorist enablers.Since my first day in office, my Administration has worked tirelessly to preserve the safety and security of the United States and its citizens. The United States and our partners have liberated 100% of ISIS-held territory in Syria and Iraq and dealt significant blows to ISIS, al-Qa’ida, and Hizballah’s financial and operational networks around the world.

    The United States will continue to aggressively use all levers of American power, including financial sanctions, to target terrorists and those who enable, facilitate, and finance their heinous acts.

    The Khazarian mafia, facing the imminent bankruptcy of their Washington DC Corporation, staged an “attack” on Saudi Arabia’s oil production in a desperate Hail Mary bid to start their long-planned World War III, multiple sources agree.

    The attack has a twofold purpose:

    1. Prevent U.S. bankruptcy by jacking up oil prices and forcing countries like China to buy U.S. oil; and
    2. Con the Iranian and U.S. militaries into starting World War III, bring on “Armageddon,” and pave the way for Jared Kushner to be “Messiah.”

    The first thing you need to understand is that Iran’s “Supreme Leader” Ali Khamenei and U.S. President Donald Trump are both employees of the Rothschild (satanic Red Shield) family.

    Those of you who are still drinking corporate-media Kool-Aid, please do some independent fact-checking. Lots of you know it is a matter of public record that each time Donald Trump went bankrupt as a businessman, he was bailed out by the Rothschilds. However, did you know that Ayatollah Khomeini, the leader of the Iranian revolution, was actually of British-Indian heritage and the son of a British Petroleum employee? The Rothschild-owned BP was then known as Anglo-Iranian Oil.

    Here is what an Iranian dissident has to say about Khomeini’s successor: “All Iranians know and hate Ali Rothschild (Khamenei).”

    So now we have Rothschild-slave President Trump tweeting, “Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit; are locked and loaded depending on verification.”

    Then we have a Rothschild-slave Iranian leader Khamenei ordering his Republican Guard Commander Amir Ali Hajizadeh to say Iran was “ready for a full-fledged war” and threaten that “America’s military bases and aircraft carriers, which are stationed up to 1,243 miles around Iran, were within range of Iranian missiles.”

    It also looks like both the Iranian and U.S. top leaders are campaigning for the reelection on September 17th of mass-murdering war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu before the Jewish people wake up and put him in jail where he belongs.

    Many in the U.S. military/intelligence community still cling to the hope that Trump is just going along with the Zionists as part of an elaborate ruse designed to remove them from control of the U.S.

    Pentagon sources thus say Trump “set up Bibi [Netanyahu] for defeat with …

    Why Iran is getting the blame for an attack on Saudi Arabia claimed by Yemen’s Houthis

    Source: TheWashingtonPost

    A series of suspected drone attacks Saturday that targeted oil facilities in Saudi Arabia resulted in explosions and fireballs, knocking out half the kingdom’s oil output for days. Now, questions are being asked about the extent of the damage and how the attack was carried out.

    The key question, however, is who was responsible. Yemen’s Houthi rebels, at the center of a civil war against Saudi-backed forces, have claimed responsibility; on Monday, they threatened additional attacks.

    But Western and Saudi officials have cast doubt on the claim, saying the attack did not originate in Yemen. They have instead pointed at a known backer of the Houthis: Iran.

    “Amid all the calls for de-escalation, Iran has now launched an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a tweet Saturday. “There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen.”

    The relationship between Iran and the Houthis is not simple and has long been clouded by accusations and denials and amplified by rumors and propaganda from all sides.

    Who are the Houthis?

    Based out of Yemen’s northwest, the Houthis first came to international prominence in 2015, when they helped topple the government of Yemen’s president and regional U.S. ally Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi.

    Their history, however, stretches back to the early 1990s, when a group called Shabab al-Muminin (the Believing Youth) worked to raise awareness about the Zaydi branch of Shiite Islam, which had dominated Yemen for centuries but was sidelined after a civil war in the 1960s.

    Hussein al-Houthi, one of the leaders of the Believing Youth, began staging anti-American protests after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. When Houthi was killed by government forces in 2003, his supporters renamed their group after him and continued a shift from religious protest to armed insurgency.

    From 2015 onward, the Houthis have participated in the civil war that has engulfed Yemen, primarily facing off against supporters of Hadi, who is also backed by a Saudi-led international coalition.

    What are their links to Iran?

    Iranian backing of the Houthis appears to have increased over time. But experts on Iran’s network of proxies say the Houthis are among the least dependent on Tehran for financial and military support and decision-making.

    Although the Houthis began as a primarily local movement and the Zaydi branch of Shiite Islam is significantly different from the theology of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the group is part of a wide network of Tehran-supported armed factions in the Middle East.

    A 2009 diplomatic cable sent by the U.S. Embassy in Yemen said that contrary to the Yemeni government’s claims that the group was being armed by Iran, “most analysts report that the Houthis obtain their weapons from the Yemeni black market” and from Yemen’s military.

    In 2017, Reuters interviewed an unnamed Iranian official who said that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps had held a meeting for ways to “empower” the Houthis. “At this meeting, they agreed to increase the amount of help, through training, arms and financial support,” the official said.

    Iran has issued official denials of accusations that it is arming the Houthis, but intercepted weapons shipments in the Arabian sea have found rifles, rocket launchers, antitank guided missiles and munitions that appear to have been en route from Iran to Yemen for the insurgency.

    Have the Houthis targeted Saudi Arabia before?

    Yes. Since the start of the conflict within Yemen, the Houthis have sought to punish Saudi Arabia for its prominent role by launching attacks on Saudi soil. Last year, Saudi officials said they had intercepted more than 100 ballistic missiles fired from Houthi territory.

    Armed drones attacked oil-pumping stations west of Riyadh in May and caused serious damage, while an attack on Abha airport in the south wounded 26 people in June.

    But Saturday’s attack struck right at the center of Saudi Arabia’s oil production facilities, making it a significantly more sophisticated operation than what the Houthis have been known for in the past. The blasts took place in the districts of Khurais and Abqaiq, more than than 500 miles from the Houthi-controlled zones in Yemen, using precision strikes to cause maximum damage.

    The attack may have used both drones and missiles. Fabian Hinz, a research associate at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at Monterey, argued that photos of the remnants of a missile in Saudi Arabia show a weapon both too sophisticated to be produced domestically by the Houthis and never seen in Iran.

    “Is Iran secretly designing, testing and producing missile systems for exclusive use by its proxies?” Hinz asked in a blog post for Arms Control Wonk.

    What if the Houthis didn’t do it?

    The advanced nature of the attack has led to assertions that it did not originate in Yemen but was carried out by Iranian proxies in Iraq or even Iran itself.

    It is not clear why the Houthis would claim the strike if so. It may be part of a regional strategy by Iran and its allies that would attempt to sow confusion, although many analysts have argued in the past that the Houthis, driven by local concerns, act independently of Iran when they wish to.

    “Now they say that they had nothing to do with the attack on Saudi Arabia,” President Trump tweeted of Iran on Monday morning, before adding a tentative question. “We’ll see?”

    “War is waged by men; not by beasts, or by gods. It is a peculiarly human activity. To call it a crime against mankind is to miss at least half its significance; it is also the punishment of a crime.” - Frederic Manning, The Middle Parts of Fortune

    There seems to be some mixup. The whole "it couldn't have come from Yemen due to the direction" is totally based on the idea that missiles were used. The Houthis have made no claims about missiles, but rather drones. Saudi Arabia showed off the downed drones, so we know drones were involved. And drones do not fly in straight lines like missiles do.

    So far I can tell this story has two parts:
    1. Houthis claimed to use drones to attack Aramco. Iraq reported no airspace violations. Kuwait reported drones violated their airspace. Saudi Arabia shows they destroyed those (or some) drones and showed the wreckage on television.
    2. US claims Iran used missiles to attack Aramco. US has released improperly oriented aerial photos of the damage.

    And the media is mixing it all together.

    The US direly needs an excuse to start a war with Iran in behalf of Israel, which declared war on Iran already some months ago, and Saudi Arabia which seeks "hegemony" in the region (for Sunni=Salafist=Wahhabist=AlQaeda=IS ideology). And of course the US' own global hegemony ambitions.
    So there's more fake news to come, no matter the actual reality.

    The "poor, suppressed" Sunni Moslems was the group that was "liberated" in the 2003 Iraq war from the "evil" Shia Moslems, who have kept Syria, Iraq and Iran together, now with the Sunni extremist mob inbetween, and all the conveniently left behind US military equipment, they roll over the middle east as IS, delivering the pretext to the invasion of Syria (although the regime-change failed for the time being, this is not over, the US still wants a regime-change, and you can bet 100% on that it will be Sunni extremists / Muslim Brotherhood (like in Egypt with Mursi) put into power, NATO-lackey Turkey prevents other solutions for Syria), which would make a march on Iran an easy go.

    Guess Lebanon will be the "collateral damage" from an all-out invasion on the Middle East...
