Press TV – Jan 8, 2017 Scores of people have staged a protest in a northern German port city against the deployment and transport of NATO troops and weapons through the city. The protest was held in the port city of Bremerhaven on Saturday. US military hardware, including 87 tanks and 144 Bradley fighting vehicles, […]
At the end of World War Two, Four Victorious Allied Partners split Germany into 4 Sections to supervise Germany after getting rid of Adolf Hitler.
After various treaties, agreements (see below links) and the re-unification of Germany after the fall of the Berlin Wall, all of the occupying forces left Germany per the Agreements and Treaties, apart from the USA. To this day, Germany is Illegally Occupied by the USA.
Germany’s Gold Reserves are held hostage in a Bank in New York. In 2013, Merkel asked for the US to return Germany’s Gold Reserves and was declined.
Most importantly – NATO is a democracy. Members Vote regarding action against other Countries. The Vote at the NATO Summit in Poland in 2016 voted a resounding NO for any action to be taken against Russia. Only 4 Countries voted with the USA for War against Russia. Latvia – whose President is a USA Passported Puppet, and implicated in War Crimes during the Bosnian War – although cases are continually getting blocked and have to restart. Moldova which has recently changed it’s mind. Ukraine – which after the US Hellery Clinton Coup is factually a US Puppet State, and a small area of land which is not yet formally recognised as an Independent Country by the World.
What is also poignant is Trump’s announcement after the US Election that US will be making Europe PAY for NATO in the EU and will not be financing it. Obama’s Regime has ratified this with a $613 Billion Budget for US Military in 2017 – the largest spend ever, and only $3 Billion for EU NATO to fund Refugees – which the USA has caused.
Conclusion – The US Military Buildup in Germany is an Illegal US Occupation force, does not have a NATO Vote to back it up, and is very aggressive. Probably the most aggressive move so far since the Ukraine Coup by Hellery Clinton in 2014.
(Reuters) – President-elect Donald Trump accepts the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia engaged in cyberattacks aimed at disrupting the U.S. elections, his incoming chief of staff Reince Priebus said on Sunday, adding that “actions may be taken” in response. Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Priebus said Trump “accepts the fact that in this particular […]
Dutch journalist Michel Spekkers (pictured) has just returned to the Netherlands, after a week of working in the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. Upon his return into Schiphol airport, after having been contacted initially by, as I understand, the MH17 investigation team, after having tweeted about having removed items from the crash site, he was questioned by Dutch police, and all the MH17 items, plus equipment pertaining to his work – camera equipment, cards, even phone, was seized – against his will, naturally.
As I would with any journalist wanting to come to report the truth from Donbass, I helped Michel, and colleague, Stefan Beck, with advice on accreditation etc, and when they arrived here, we spent the first few days together – in Donetsk, and Lugansk, even seeing in the new year with Michel.

A Coptic alcohol vendor was brazenly murdered as he innocently sat smoking his shisha. The killer came up from behind him, in itself a cowardice act, and slashed his throat. Arrested soon afterwards, the killer said he had warned the victim against selling alcohol, which, to him, was reason enough to perform this act of pure savagery. The victim’s family spoke in sorrow of their loss, but no vindictive act followed.
Weeks earlier a suicide bomber killed 27 Copts as they prayed in church. The assailant walked between the women’s aisles and detonated himself amidst innocent children and mothers. Egyptians, all Egyptians, mourned the dead and the injured. Still, the massacre as many others before it passed with no further reverberations.
In 2014, Mary Sameh George, driving close to a Muslim Brotherhood protest, was dragged out of her car, beaten and stabbed to death. She met this harrowing death because of a cross that was hanging from her rear-view mirror. The family and community mourned the brutality, but did not oppose God’s will, believing that Mary had gone to a better place.
As far as Libya, Copts are victimized. In February 2015, 21 Coptic Egyptian workers were beheaded in a gruesome but detailed propaganda stunt by DAESH. The men, wearing bright orange and leaning down, had their killers behead them from behind, their bodies dumped into the Mediterranean. In other circumstances this could’ve led to a fury of bitterness, but again peace and acceptance strengthened the victims’ families.
In this case, as in no other, the army vindicated the dead by carrying out an air strike early the morning after. It targeted DAESH camps and training sites. Even if Egypt had not pursued revenge, it is unlikely that Copts would’ve protested.
When radical Islamists wanted to retaliate after Rabaa Square was evacuated by force, they chose to retaliate against, first, Copts, and, later, the security apparatus. Dozens of churches, Coptic-owned businesses and homes got stormed and torched, and many Copts were attacked.
The village of Delga was a scene of total mayhem whereby the government simply lost the fight. Morsi supporters drove the police out and occupied the police station. For a period, while many Copts fled, others had to pay to be protected. A Copt was killed in his home, chained to a tractor, and dragged across the village. Priest Iskander Taous half-naked body was chained to a scooter and dragged around town, too.
The reaction of Copts was humbling. In a service in one of the burned churches in Upper Egypt, the reverend asked church members to forgive the rioters. He quoted what Jesus said of his attackers on the cross “They know not what they do.” And a church member said, “We pray today for everyone who wronged us, with all love; for each one who extended his hand with an axe, for each one who extended his hand with fire, or stole from the church.”
Enough already: the incidents are in the thousands; we are all aware of them.
Copts throughout hardships grieve silently, smile amidst sorrow, and listen to the beckoning of their leaders who call for peace and non-violence while enduring the pain and intolerance. Retaliation as a concept does not exist amongst them, but acceptance does. Copts never once demanded much; they merely continue to live their lives accepting whatever God sends them even if it is brutal and violent.
Watch Maggie Moemen’s mother grieve, and you will understand the meaning of faith and belief. Maggie is the ten-year-old who became the 27th fatality in the church explosion. Having remained in a coma for several days, she finally succumbed to her death. Maggie’s mother, Nermine Samir, is the epitome of acceptance. She has no hatred or fury. Believing her daughter is in heaven with God, she doesn’t even ask for retribution.
Tyranny in general triggers revenge but not with Copts. When a Black young man is killed by the police force in the US, five NYC police officers are shot dead. When over 600 Muslim Brotherhood members die in Rabaa Square, Egypt suffers until today. Israelis react instantly if one of their own is harmed. Revengeful acts take place between one group and the other in Iraq, Syria, Libya, and the whole world. The world is up in arms, and yet Copts accept their fate and whatever god sends them in a stunningly peaceful fashion.
And this is why Egyptians should count their blessings and their lucky stars that Copts are who they are. Despite the horror Copts endure day in and day out, they live on deeming such horrors as something God wants for them. They are told to “…love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. (Matt 5:44) And they follow the advice with no ifs ands or buts.
As Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King had both once said, “An eye for an eye ends up making the whole world blind.”
Merry Xmas, Egyptians.
