HOLLYWOOD COMES TO PARIS: A still from a video that purported to show the shooting of a policeman by the Kouachi brothers is fraught with holes and bears every hallmark of a movie set scene!
Estranged Illuminati family member blows whistle on false flag and names perpetrators of gory act. Does her tip bear up?
On January 14 2015, Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula (AQAP), regarded by the US as the deadliest branch of the global Jihadist network, announced it was behind the Charlie Hedbo killings of January 7 in a 11-minute video posted on its Twitter account. The hit, so the leader of the Yemeni branch of AQAP gushed, had been in the making since 2011 at the orders of Al-Qaeda's overall leader Ayman al-Zawahri, Osama bin Laden's successor, and was arranged by the now deceased radical Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki (he was blown in a US drone strike in Yemen in September 2011). The killings were “in revenge for the prophet”, that is, Muhammad.
The AQAP assertion was a classic case of reaping where one did not sow. It was purely opportunistic, much like Osama bin Laden’s claim that it was Al Qaeda that had masterminded the spectacularly horrendous 9-11. The first to throw the lie back at AQAP was the CIA and its ilk. Two US counter-terrorism officials made it known to ABC News that there was no persuasive evidence that AQAP either coordinated the attack or anticipated it as signals intercept records of recent times had not come across any communication between any of the Kouachi brothers and known AQAP figures. Certainly, if AQAP was the architect of the Paris atrocity, why did they take a full week to own up to it when typically Al Qaeda takes less than 48 hours to bask in the “glory” of a particularly galvanising strike?
A case can be made that during the standoff with a police cordon, both Cherif Kouachi and Ahmed Coulibaly voluntarily admitted to having operated under the auspices of Jihadist groups in telephonic interviews with BFM TV, France’s most watched news network. But such a confession must be taken with a pinch of salt. Firstly, even CNN, which is affiliated to BFM TV, did categorically state that it could not vouch for the authenticity of the interviews. Secondly, the two terrorists could have been coached in advance as to exactly what to say in the event they were cornered. Thus AQAP’s belated announcement could have been prompted by the need to capitalise on the reported assertions of the terrorists and not on their factuality. In any case, Coulibaly and the Kouachi brothers belonged to two rival groups, ISIS and AQAP respectively. Why then did ISIS did not endorse Coulibaly’s involvement in the Paris shootings if he was indeed their man?
When all is said done, what emerges is that the shootings were not the work of Al Qaeda nor of ISIS but of a Third Force. Just what was this Third Force?
A ROTHSCHILD TIP On January 11 2015, Lasha Darkmoon, a renowned English-American essayist and critic of the Illuminati agenda, received an email from Ellie Katsnelson, who also goes by the name Madame Rothschild. Katsnelson is a German aristocrat of Rothschild parentage who fell out with her family when she discovered that the death of her mother in the Swiss Alps in 1989 was not an accident but a cleverly orchestrated sacrificial murder. Part of her email read as follows:
“I will say most emphatically, based on my private sources, for as you know, I am a resident of France and have many friends in high places in Paris and elsewhere: not only do I believe that the Paris circus was not done by the Muslims, I actually know for a certainty that it was not. Muslims had nothing – I repeat, nothing – whatever to do with the carnage that took place in Paris last week.
“A few young ladies whom I know and who are active in the Palestinian movement – with your own countryman, George Galloway, I believe – explained everything to me two days ago. This whole event was organised in Brussels. Even Ahmed Merabet, the first French policeman purportedly shot dead, is actually not a Muslim at all: his real name is Avigdor, and his brother’s name is Maloch, recently changed to Melek – all of them crypto-Jews in the service of Israeli intelligence, i.e., Mossad agents. Avigdor is in Buenos Aires right now, and will remain there for six years, a standard operating procedure with those deep in Israeli psyops. After this, he will resurface with a new identity, by which time of course the populace will have forgotten all about the Paris attacks.”
The cat is out of the bag folks. The Charlie Hebdo killings were a Mossad operation reportedly. The policeman who we saw being shot at point-blank range in the on-scene video recordings was simply acting movie-style. He was part of the whole charade, as were the shooters themselves. Katsnelson says such players are paid 666,000 euros or dollars depending on the country in which the event is staged.
“The amount may seem random and insignificant to you, but once you know how important numerology and signs are to the Kabalistic Jews, things begin to make sense,” Katsnelson continues. “Moreover, the number 6 features again, you will notice, as that is the number of years during which the commandos carrying out the operation are not allowed to resurface. They have to lie low for six years, living lives of impeccable respectability under their newly invented personas. When they finally emerge into the full light of day, it is never in the country where they performed their original theatrics.
“Thus Avigdor, the ‘hero’ of the Paris op, and all the rest of his accomplices in crime, will start a new life elsewhere: with a new identity, new papers, a new passport – even a nice new house provided. Everything else will be given to these operatives to enable them to make a fresh start in life, including a wife or partner who is also an undercover agent. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left to chance.” Does Madame Rothshilds’ revelations stand up to scrutiny?
SUPREMELY EFFICIENT KILLERS If there is one element about the Charlie Hebdo carnage that continue to stagger the mind, it was the professionalism with which it was carried out. There is no way in hell those Kalashnikova-wielding hoodlums could have been your typical, clumsy Jihadists trained at Torabora or some such godforsaken redoubt.
They appeared to be executing a well-coordinated plan in that late-morning raid, methodically seeking out and executing those targeted for death and even made a clean getaway. These guys were sharpshooters, trained to the hilt as both marksmen and snipers. They were groomed and drilled in a formal, First World military institutional setting. They exhibited the military proficiency of Team 6, the Navy Seals who killed Osama bin Laden on May 2 2011.
A Fox News military analyst, retired Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters, said, “It was evident immediately that this was a carefully planned, sophisticated operation by well-trained, well-armed veterans of Jihad. This was not a pick-up team. These butchers were methodical and efficient. They weren’t just terrorists: They were terrorist commandos.” Peters added: “They didn’t just go nuts and shoot wildly, as amateur Jihadists do.
They set out to kill specific people and never lost focus. They even stayed cool during the getaway phase.” Aki Peritz, a former CIA analyst, was quoted as saying that, “The attacks were very professional, well thought-out and well executed”. Stratfort, a well-known security analyst group, also said something to the effect that the attackers appeared to be well-trained from the way they handled the weapons, moved and shot.
It is also obvious that the killers were assisted by somebody who had inside information about the goings-on at Charlie Hebdo. They struck at the right time, a Wednesday, a day when all the freelance cartoonist were always around for a routine, weekly editorial meeting. That the attackers did not conduct this aspect of the espionage themselves is evidenced by the fact that they did not know the exact address of Charlie Hebdo: they had to ask for directions to the correct location from two maintenance workers they encountered at a wrong office before they hastened upstairs to do the deed. The killers were part of a syndicate that was far from ragtag ala ISIS or AQAP but belonged to an elite military-espionage apparatus that had agents in the ranks of the French Police itself.
FECKLESS AND DISSOLUTE BROTHERS Yet the daring and sophistication of the Charlie Hebdo killers simply does not square with the bland profile, reportedly, of the Kouachi brothers. The real Kouachi brothers come across as cowardly and simple-minded. We know a bit about them because they have had brushes with the law in the recent past, particularly Cherif, the younger of the two.
In January 2005, Cherif was arrested for being part of the Buttes Chaumont network (named for the park in northern Paris where they used to meet), a 7-man jihadist recruitment ring that smuggled fighters to swell the ranks of Iraq insurgents when US and British forces were having a field day bombing the country into virtual oblivion. Cherif, then aged 25, was captured on video whimpering pleas of innocence before reporters right in the court precincts.
These are his exact words: “The whole thing has been set up. We are just young kids from the suburbs, that is all. We get passionate, we talk like this, but there is nothing more, that's it. We did nothing wrong. There was no intention (from us), now they pretend things, but who cares. We will see and I hope that it will show evidence.” Cherif’s remonstration to the world at large was that he was set up, words that would never issue forth from the mouth of a revolutionary stalwart who was intent at even expending his life in the interests of the jihad.
In 2010, Cherif was again nabbed for "suspected involvement in plotting the escape of one of the masterminds of bombings and terrorist attacks in 1995 that killed eight people and injured more than 200". In either case, Cherif was neither a ring leader nor a protagonistic participant. His role was that of a mere facilitator, not a precision killing machine. Above all, he was chicken-hearted and this from his own mouth. In the 2008 case, he told the judge that he was relieved at being arrested. “The closer the departure (to Iraq) got, the more I wanted to turn back,” he stated matter-of-factly.
What both the 2008 and 2010 trials laid bare was the fact that Cherif was simply an also-ran in the greater scheme of whatever operations he was involved in and was more of a hedonist than a scrupulous devotee to the cause, let alone to Islam. He was far from religious, drank alcohol, smoked marijuana, was a fan of rap music, and spent more time chasing skirts than he did going to the mosque. Intellectually, he was the proverbial empty vessel: he only knew “the basics” on how to handle a Kalashnikova, inculcated to him not at a jihadist range but from a man he met at the mosque. It’s small wonder the only jobs he was good at were the menial type – delivering pizza and as a fishmonger in a supermarket latterly.
Such a mediocre, lacklustre profile does not remotely dovetail with the text-book prowess of the two ace killers who wreaked clinical havoc at Charlie Hebdo. Those two hooded guys were as different from the Kouachi brothers as black is different from white.
A STUDIO-SETTING SHOOTING Within hours of the Charlie Hebdo rampage, a video was posted on the Internet that showed one of the Kouachi brothers shoot dead at close range a hapless and pleading policeman with an AK 47 rifle. The policeman turned out to be 42-year-old Ahmed Merabet reportedly. The video was shot “on reflex” by Jordi Mir whilst he was alone in his apartment, so he said. The police never subjected him to questioning of any kind when in an ideal world, he should have been made to say much more than he let on.
The video has now famously come to be known as a hoax video on social media. A whole avalanche of reasons support this view but I will only discuss those that cut to the core of the matter so as not to bore you with forensic-type details.
The Policeman was shot twice within a ten-second interval, first in his leg and second at point blank range in his head. Yet we see no blood spatter; no spent cartridge; and no marks on the concrete. This is a 7.62 x 39 mm round, a close-range trajectile from an AK 47 assault rifle, and there is no discernible body movement that inevitably must have arisen from the energy absorption from the bullet. Whether the bullet went through the victim’s body or not, there should have been a huge blast out of the pavement but the pavement was as squeaky-clean as ever. Just where did the kinetic energy of the bullet go?
John Urwin, a former US Special Forces operative, put it rather bluntly that the video, along with others which surfaced in due course, was a studio job. “It's definitely fake: the AK 47 would take half his head away,” he sneers. “There’s a few things I don’t understand. The person taking the film doesn’t appear to be shocked or surprised. There are no sudden movements in the film when the guns are going off. And especially when someone is supposedly getting their head blown off.”
Another former Western service man had this to say: “The wound location of the first shot is indicated by the victims right hand – it clutches his upper right thigh on the outside of his hip bone. This wound, if real, would have had him screaming in horrific pain and it would have bled IMMEDIATELY. His pants, where shot, within seconds, would have turned dark with red blood soaking the fabric. The shot to the head is obviously a blank. You can see the air pressure blast wave knock the dust up off the sidewalk. If this was a real bullet you would see the same thing happen to the skin, skull and brain matter.â€¨This is a crisis actor who never got shot. There are no wounds, no blood, no tissue splatter, no recoil, no natural and immediate limpness which occurs when someone is shot in the brain with an AK47. If you haven’t been in combat and seen this firsthand to know that this is fake, I suggest you search for real terrorist killings in videos online that show what direct gun shots to the head and body really look like.”
It turns out we have precious more to say on the incident and we request that you make a date with us for the final instalment next week.
An international report complied in South Africa dubbed ‘Legal Gender Recognition in Botswana’ says that the transgender and gender non-conforming people in Botswana live a miserable life. The community experiences higher levels of discrimination, violence and ill health.
In this report, it has been indicated that this is because their gender identity, which does not conform to narrowly define societal norms, renders them more vulnerable. Gender identity is a social determinant of health, which means that it is a factor that influences people’s health via their social context, their communities and their experiences of social exclusion. The Ministry of Health and Wellness has recognized this, and transgender people are considered a vulnerable population under the Botswana Second National Strategic Framework for HIV and AIDS 2010-2017.
In a recent study that shed light on the lived experiences of transgender and gender non-conforming people in Botswana, transgender persons often experience discrimination because of their gender identity and expression. The study was conducted by the University of Cape Town, LEGABIBO, BONELA, as well as Rainbow Identity Association and approved by the Health Ministry as well as the University of Botswana.
Of the 77 transgender and gender non-conforming people who participated in the study, less than half were employed. Two thirds, which is approximately 67% said that they did not have sufficient funds to cover their everyday needs. Two in five had hidden health concerns from their healthcare provider because they were afraid to disclose their gender identity.
More than half said that because of their gender identity, they had been treated disrespectfully at a healthcare facility (55%), almost half (46%) said they had been insulted at a healthcare facility, and one quarter (25%) had been denied healthcare because of their gender identity.
At the same time, the ‘Are we doing right’ study suggests that transgender and non-conforming people might be at higher risks of experiencing violence and mental ill-health, compared to the general population. More than half had experienced verbal embarrassment because of their gender identity, 48% had experienced physical violence and more than one third (38%) had experienced sexual violence.
The study showed that mental health concerns were high among transgender and gender non-conforming people in Botswana. Half of the transgender and gender non-conforming study participants (53%) showed signs of depression. Between one in four and one in six showed signs of moderate or severe anxiety (22% among transgender women, 24% among transgender men and 17% among gender non-conforming people).
Further, the study revealed that many had attempted suicide: one in three transgender women (32%), more than one in three transgender men (35%) and three in five gender non-conforming people (61%).
International research, as well as research from Botswana, suggests that not being able to change one’s gender marker has a negative impact on access to healthcare and mental health and wellbeing. The study further showed that one in four transgender people in Botswana (25%) had been denied access to healthcare. This is, at least in part, linked to not being able to change one’s gender marker in the identity documents, and thus not having an identity document that matches one’s gender identity and gender expression.
In its Assessment of Legal and Regulatory Framework for HIV, AIDS and Tuberculosis, the Health Ministry noted that “transgender persons in Botswana are unable to access identity documents that reflect their gender identity, which is a barrier to health services, including in the context of HIV. In one documented case, a transwoman’s identity card did not reflect her gender identity- her identity card photo indicated she was ‘male’. When she presented her identity card at a health facility, a health worker called the police who took her into custody.”
The necessity of a correct national identity document goes beyond healthcare. The High Court of Botswana explains that “the national identity document plays a pivotal role in every Motswana’s daily life, as it links him or her with any service they require from various institutions. Most activities in the country require every Motswana to produce their identity document, for identification purposes of receiving services.”
According to the Legal Gender Recognition in Botswana report, this effectively means that transgender, whose gender identity and expression is likely to be different from the sex assigned to them at birth and from what is recorded on their identity document, cannot access services without risk of denial or discrimination, or accusations of fraud.
In this context, gays and lesbians advocacy group LEGABIBO has called on government through the Department of Civil and National Registration to urgently implement the High Court rulings on gender marker changes. As stated by the High Court in the ND vs Attorney General of Botswana judgement, identity cards (Omang) play an important role in the life of every Motswana. Refusal and or delay to issue a Motswana with an Omang is denying them to live a complete and full-filing life with dignity and violates their privacy and freedom of expression.
The judgement clarified that persons can change their gender marker as per the National Registrations Act, so changing the gender marker is legally possible. There is no need for a court order. It further said the person’s gender is self-identified, there is no need to consult medical doctors.
LEGABIBO also called on government to develop regulations that specify administrative procedure to change one’s gender marker, and observing self-determination process. Further, the group looks out for government to ensure members of the transgender community are engaged in the development of regulations.
“We call on this Department of Civil and National Registration to ensure that the gender marker change under the National Registration Act is aligned to the Births and Deaths Registry Act to avoid court order.
Meanwhile, a gay man in Lobatse, Moabi Mokenke was recently viciously killed after being sexually violated in the streets of Peleng, shockingly by his neighbourhood folks. The youthful lad, likely to be 29-years old, met his fate on his way home, from the wearisome Di a Bowa taverns situated in the much populated township of Peleng Central.
CEO of Khato Civils Mongezi Mnyani has come out of the silence and is going all way guns blazing against the company’s adversaries who he said are hell-bent on tarnishing his company’s image and “hard-earned good name”
Speaking to WeekendPost from South Africa, Mnyani said it is now time for him to speak out or act against his detractors. Khato Civils has done several projects across Africa. Khato Civils, a construction company and its affiliate engineering company, South Zambezi have executed a number of world class projects in South Africa, Malawi and now recently here in Botswana.
About ten (10) Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) parliamentary candidates who lost the 2019 general election and petitioned results this week met with UDC Vice President, Dumelang Saleshando to discuss the way forward concerning the quandary that is the legal fees put before them by Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) lawyers.
For a while now, UDC petitioners who are facing the wrath of quizzical sheriffs have demanded audience with UDC National Executive Committee (NEC) but in vain. However after the long wait for a tete-a-tete with the UDC, the petitioners met with Saleshando accompanied by other NEC members including Dr. Kesitegile Gobotswang, Reverend Mpho Dibeela and Dennis Alexander.
