A secret Foreign Affairs memo has surfaced warning of security risks for our Middle East & Africa diplomatic missions
Clash of Civilizations Book The Clash of Civilizations is a theory that people's cultural and religious identities will be the primary source of conflict in the post-Cold War world. It was proposed by political scientist Samuel P. Huntington in a 1992 lecture at the American Enterprise Institute, which was then developed in a 1993 Foreign Affairs article titled "The Clash of Civilizations?", in response to his former student Francis Fukuyama's 1992 book, The End of History and the Last Man. Huntington later expanded his thesis in a 1996 book The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order. The phrase itself was earlier used by Bernard Lewis in an article in the September 1990 issue of The Atlantic Monthly titled "The Roots of Muslim Rage". Even earlier, the phrase appears in a 1926 book regarding the Middle East by Basil Mathews: Young Islam on Trek: A Study in the Clash of Civilizations (p. 196). This expression derives from clash of cultures, already used during the colonial period and the Be ...
Thanks again, John Pilger, for telling the truth, so artfully concealed by our leaders. """Last year, the former French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas revealed that “two years before the Arab Spring”, he was told in London that a war on Syria was planned. “I am going to tell you something,” he said in an interview with the French TV channel LPC, “I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business. I met top British officials, who confessed to me that they were preparing something in Syria… Britain was organising an invasion of rebels into Syria. They even asked me, although I was no longer Minister for Foreign Affairs, if I would like to participate.… This operation goes way back. It was prepared, preconceived and planned.” The only effective opponents of ISIS are accredited demons of the west – Syria, Iran, Hezbollah. The obstacle is Turkey, an “ally” and a member of Nato, which has conspired with the CIA, MI6 and the Gulf medievalists to channel support to the ...
A political vision, when it comes to Foreign Affairs, has been lost by the "West" and the Middle East is in devastating crisis as a result.
NEWS UPDATES AT 8 O’CLOCK WITH ORANGE. About 250 female Ugandans have been detained in different camps in Kuwait after they ran away from homes where they were being abused. The girls will be transferred to another facility if they lack the funds to return home. These girls were trafficked and promised juicy jobs in supermarkets but ended up enslaved in homes as maids. The head of the Anti-Human Trafficking Desk, Moses Binoga could not confirm the number of girls trafficked as Uganda lacks an embassy in Kuwait, but he said the country has the biggest number of Ugandan victims of trafficking. Ministry of Foreign Affairs is expected to liaise with Ugandan missions in the Middle East to find out the whereabouts of these women. During the two day inter-religious conference in Kampala yesterday, President Museveni in his speech described former president, Idi Amin as an *** for ‘bad rule’ and justified his participation in the war to overthrow him. He told religious leaders to avoid intolerance as reli . ...
Patches and the best news and despite the rejection of the U.S. State Department said Washington plans proposals to recast the borders of the greater Middle East, including Pakistan, along ethnic and religious lines. Discuss the proposed plan very recently appeared in the Journal of the American armed forces along with two maps showing the new boundaries. Ministry of Foreign Affairs may be perceived as an act of an individual and argued that it does not reflect the views of the United States government.In article, titled "The Limits of blood," Mr. Peters says that the borders in the Middle East and Africa are the "most arbitrary and distorted" in the world and the need to restructure . Re-adjustments map of Pakistan because it is "non-natural". Outlining a possible new regional arrangements between the Mediterranean and the Indus River, the article indicates that NW Pakistani border tribes will be re-united with their fellow Afghans, because, of course, Pakistan, other non-natural state, will also lose th ...

Hamas Deal Last Straw for Congress on U.S. Aid to Palestinians - Julian Pecquet Wednesday's announcement of a reconciliation between the rival Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah triggered an instant call for retaliation on Capitol Hill. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), who chairs the House Foreign Affairs panel on the Middle East and authored the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act, called for an immediate suspension of U.S. aid to the PA. The 2006 law prohibits support for a "Hamas-controlled Palestinian Authority." "The Administration must halt aid to the Palestinian Authority and condition any future assistance as leverage to force Abu Mazen [Abbas] to abandon this reconciliation with Hamas and to implement real reforms within the PA," Ros-Lehtinen said. "U.S. law is clear on the prohibition of U.S. assistance to a unity Palestinian government that includes Hamas, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization, and President Obama must not allow one cent of American taxpayer money to help fund this terrori ...
Hey everyone, I'm David. I live in Lino Lakes and go to Centennial. I actually thought I would not go to Bethel and really only applied so my parents would stop nagging me. I thought I would be at Biola in California. But God had different plans, funny how He works that way. I still feel the Lord calling me out to Biola there, but for this year I will be staying in MN. So... I'll be double majoring in poly sci and international relations with an emphasis on the Middle East. I love politics and Foreign Affairs so I wanted to do something that included those two things. I work, more live at, Caribou/ Brueggers. So that's pretty fun. I may or may not have a slight obsession with the country singer Taylor Swift. And I also may or may not have been to three of her concerts... I'm a PK. Any other PK's out there?! And when I'm not at work, which is rarely these days I spend my time watching Law and Order SVU and cop shows/ movies. I can't wait to meet and get to know you all!

The emperor has no clothes. Pivot, Reset, and the Middle East. & are the clowns in Foreign Affairs.
Take a look at the year-end issue of Foreign Affairs, the main establishment journal. Its big front-page cover asks, in bold face, “Is America Over?” It’s a standard complaint of those who believe they should have everything. If you believe you should have everything and anything gets away from you, it’s a tragedy, the world is collapsing. So is America over? A long time ago we “lost” China, we’ve lost Southeast Asia, we’ve lost South America. Maybe we’ll lose the Middle East and North African countries. Is America over? It’s a kind of paranoia, but it’s the paranoia of the superrich and the superpowerful. If you don’t have everything, it’s a disaster.

mga OFWS MAG INGAT PO SA virus na itoh all over asia laging mag ingat : Nurse dies from coronavirus in Saudi Tuesday, September 17, 2013 MANILA -- The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) reported Tuesday that a Filipina working in Saudi Arabia died from the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-COV) last August 29. Citing a report from the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh, DFA spokesman Raul Hernandez said the 41-year-old nurse was working at a Saudi hospital and was tested positive for the coronavirus prior to her death. "She is the first reported case (of a Filipino national in Saudi afflicted with corona virus)," said Hernandez in a phone interview. Based on her medical records, the nurse was admitted to the hospital back in August 12 after a fishbone got stuck in her throat and was discharged two days later. On August 19, she complained of fever and coughing and was eventually put on a ventilator on August 22 after developing respiratory distress. Two days later, she was diagnosed with severe ...
DOLE, DFA officials are hypocrites! By Ramon Tulfo, Philippine Daily Inquirer . June 19th, 2013 Labor and Foreign Affairs officials are shedding tears over beleaguered Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in the Middle East who are fed to the wolves by some Philippine Embassy officials who should be helping them. C’mon, you hypocrites! Those are crocodile tears. The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) have long known about the wretched conditions at the embassy refugee centers, where runaway Filipino domestic workers seek refuge, but they have turned a blind eye to the situation. The media have been reporting about how runaway Filipino maids and other workers are made to sleep on the floor in cramped refugee centers run by our embassies in the Middle East. For one, my public service program, Isumbong mo kay Tulfo, has called the attention of the DOLE and DFA many times about the plight of runaway workers at the refugee centers, based on complaints from OFWs who ...

Radio dzMM anchor Gerry Baja, who attended the meeting, said the 4 women gave testimonies against a Philippine labor official stationed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. All of the women had similar stories. "Pare-pareho, iisa ang nirereklamo," Baja said. One of alleged victims told Del Rosario that she was molested by the labor official, and another alleged she was pimped. Del Rosario said the erring official can be recalled from his post and fired based on testimonies of the victims ...
Britain must halt calling for Turkish EU membership With significant civil unrest and an intransigent government, is Britain reconsidering its commitment to Turkish entry to the European Union. If not, then why not demands William Dartmouth MEP, UKIP Spokesman on Foreign Affairs, “Turkey is geographically 97% in Asia; however as we have just seen the Turkish government's attitude to dissent places it 100% in the Middle East.” “The UK Coalition government's policy - favoured also by the Labour Party - is for the UK to be a cheerleader for Turkey's membership of the European Union.” “On behalf of UKIP, I appeal in the national interest that this reckless policy be suspended and reconsidered immediately.” “It is bad enough that EU membership for Turkey means that the UK would in effect have borders with Syria, Iraq and Iran – it is unacceptable for the UK to be in a political union with an authoritarian state in Asia with a population of 80 million.”
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee was founded in 1951 by Isaiah L. "Si" Kenen.[10] Kenen originally ran the American Zionist Committee for Public Affairs as a lobbying division of the American Zionist Council. Before that, Kenen was an employee of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Michael Oren writes in his book, Power, Faith, and Fantasy: America in the Middle East 1776 to the Present, "Though founded in 1953, AIPAC had only now in the mid-70s, achieved the financial and political clout necessary to sway congressional opinion. Confronted with opposition from both houses of Congress, [United States President Gerald] Ford rescinded his 'reassessment.'"[11] George Lenczowski notes a similar, mid-1970s, timeframe for the rise of AIPAC power. "It [the Carter Presidency] also coincides with the militant emergence of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as a major force in shaping American policy toward the Middle East."[12] He further notes that this period also coincides with ...

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE US RELATIONS WITH ISRAEL "ARE IN JEOPARDY" IF CURRENT OBAMA APPOINTEES ARE CONFIRMED - PRO ISRAEL ORGANIZATIONAL LEADER CALLS ON SENATE TO WITHHOLD CONFIRMATIONS (Washington, DC) - January 10, 2013 - The leader of pro-Israel organization Proclaiming Justice To The Nations (PJTN) is today calling on the United States Senate to refuse confirmation of President Obama's standing nominees for the posts of Secretary of State, CIA Director, and Secretary of Defense, citing a collective lack of responsible leadership towards their positions on Foreign Affairs and support of Israel. "Once again, President Obama's nominations for key leadership positions reflects an inability to stand strong in the arena of Foreign Affairs, America's support of Israel, and ultimately the security of US interests domestically as well as in the Middle East," noted Laurie Cardoza-Moore, head of PJTN, in a message to the US Senate citing the selections of John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, and John Brennan for major posts i ...

You might want to look up Stephen Coughlin’s work on Shariah/Islamic law since he was an Islamic expert for the DOD Joint Chiefs of Staff for several years. You can find many of his briefings on YouTube and it would be a good idea to view them especially this one: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation and its Role in Enforcing Islamic Law. Who said this, when, why and what has our government done about it? "The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every musselman [muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.” This is just part of a March 28, 1786 letter to John Jay, the United States Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Continental Congress, signed by John Adams and Thomas Jefferson concer ...
I listened to Romney's speech at the Virginia Military Institute. Very good speech again.. Obama in California with Clooney, Kate Perry, and other great political minds having a big fundraiser. Romney talks of the unrest in the Middle East and Iran is within a few months of getting a nuke. Obama ignores this. Romney talks about the problems in telling out enemies when we are pulling out of the wars. Obama says terror from Al Queda and the Taliban is a thing of the past. Muslim Brotherhood rules in Libya and our ambassador is killed along with other Americans... Obama says we are safer than we were 4 years ago and he has restored respect to the US with foreign countries... Foreign countries burn the US flag and say "Death to America"!! Obama and he cronies are out there screaming Romney is lying to us. Do they really think the American people are that stupid? Some may be if they are voting for Obama again. It is so obvious that he is the one lying because he has no defense for his horrible record on the e ...
Note to friends. I also know about Ron Paul. He is closer on constitutional matters than most. I would say that application, just as the Bible, is where the devil is. I will not elaborate for the point is mute. 1. I know you who are licking your wounds will not be convinced by what I say and you will not vote either major party, so you are irrelevant for this election. 2. But if I can talk a bit of reason into the heads of some of you. A few votes could make the difference in a few of the most important states. Pat Buchanan voters came within an eyelash of giving Algore the election in Florida and we would be ten years farther down the road than we are now. [of course you Bush haters, see no difference between Bush and Algore either. I do, substantial ones] 3. Ron Paul is a disaster on Foreign Affairs and especially on Middle East matters. Those of you who see no difference between Iran and Israel also are beyond help, but Iran does call for the annhilation of the Jewish state, the slaughter of t ...

"Media freedom has the power to transform societies and to change the course of history. Over the past year, across the Middle East and North Africa, ordinary citizens found their voices using social media and blogs. But freedom of expression continues to be repressed in many countries and some have seen a significant decline in media freedoms. Around the world, journalists, bloggers and others have been obstructed from doing their work by being harassed, monitored, detained, or subjected to violence."- Jeremy Brown, UK Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day, May 3, 2012.
Russian Duma Leader Pushkov Warns: Obama's Middle East BMD Plan Could Lead to "A Full Fledged War" April 8th, 2012 • 9:54 AM Alexei Pushkov, the Chairman of the Russian State Duma's International Affairs Committee, warned that the U.S. joint missile defense plans with six Arab states "may signal the possibility of a military strike on Iran," and that therefore "the likelihood of a full-fledged war is very high." Russia's top leaders have made it clear that they view the Obama administration's plan to deploy missile defense systems in Europe, the Middle East, and the Pacific, as part of a single policy of encirclement of Russia and China, which threatens the fundamental national security interests of those countries, and have repeatedly warned that they will respond accordingly. Pushkov was speaking at a round table conference on Iran held at the State Duma in early April. According to accounts in Russia Today and RIA Novosti, Pushkov said: "The formation of the missile defense system is a new step to si ...
