What Iraq Thinks: "It Is Obvious To Everyone That ISIS Is A Creation Of The United States And Israel" | Zero Hedge

priceofliberty:

From the NYT:

We know about who made Daesh,” said Bahaa al-Araji, a deputy prime minister, using an Arabic shorthand for the Islamic State on Saturday at a demonstration called by the Shiite cleric Moktada al-Sadr to warn against the possible deployment of American ground troops. Mr. Sadr publicly blamed the C.I.A. for creating the Islamic State in a speech last week, and interviews suggested that most of the few thousand people at the demonstration, including dozens of members of Parliament, subscribed to the same theory. (Mr. Sadr is considered close to Iran, and the theory is popular there as well.)

 When an American journalist asked Mr. Araji to clarify if he blamed the C.I.A. for the Islamic State, he retreated: “I don’t know. I am one of the poor people,” he said, speaking fluent English and quickly stepping back toward the open door of a chauffeur-driven SUV. “But we fear very much. Thank you!”

Smart guy: there could have been an armed and ready Predator drone flying overhead.

But why would the locals be gripped by this “conspiracy theory”, at least until it is a proven fact? According to the NYT, the prevalence of the theory in the streets underscored the deep suspicions of the American military’s return to Iraq more than a decade after its invasion, in 2003. The casual endorsement by a senior official, though, was also a pointed reminder that the new Iraqi government may be an awkward partner for the American-led campaign to drive out the extremists.

In short, the US has zero credibility abroad, even with the US-puppet government is just put in power to replace the US-pupet government preceding it:

Mr. Obama has pledged not to send combat troops, but he seems to have convinced few Iraqis. “
We don’t trust him,” said Raad Hatem, 40. Haidar al-Assadi, 40, agreed. “The Islamic State is a clear creation of the United States, and the United States is trying to intervene again using the excuse of the Islamic State,” he said.
Shiite militias and volunteers, he said, were already answering the call from religious leaders to defend Iraq from the Islamic State without American help. “This is how we do it,” he said, adding that the same forces would keep American troops out. “The main reason Obama is saying he will not invade again is because he knows the Islamic resistance” of the Shiite militias “and he does not want to lose a single soldier.

To be sure, it is not just the US which is blamed: some of the fault is reserved for the government of the former president, Maliki, who as a reminder, was a puppet initially put in his post by none other than the US.

Many at the rally in Baghdad said they welcomed airstrikes against Mr. Baghdadi’s Islamic State but not American ground forces, the position that Mr. Sadr has taken. Many of the 30 lawmakers backed by Mr. Sadr — out of a Parliament of 328 seats — attended the rally.

Mr. Sadr’s supporters opposed Mr. Maliki, the former prime minister, and many at the rally were quick to criticize the former government for mistakes like failing to build a more dependable army. “We had a good army, so where is this army now?” asked Waleed al-Hasnawi, 35. “Maliki gave them everything, but they just left the battlefield.

But few if any blamed Mr. Maliki for alienating Sunnis, as American officials assert, by permitting sectarian abuses under the Shiite-dominated security forces.

Omar al-Jabouri, 31, a Sunni Muslim from a predominantly Shiite neighborhood of Baghdad who attended the rally and said he volunteers with a Shiite brigade, argued that Mr. Maliki had alienated most Iraqis, regardless of their sect. “He did not just exclude and marginalize the Sunni people; he ignored the Shiite people, too,” Mr. Jabouri said. “He gave special help to his family, his friends, people close to him. He did not really help the Shiite people, as many people think.”

And while sentiment is mixed toward the local politicians, there is no debate when it comes to the greatest terrorist scourge since bin Laden:

… the Islamic State was a different story, Mr. Jabouri said. “It is obvious to everyone that the Islamic State is a creation of the United States and Israel.”

12 Racist Logos You Didn’t Know Were Used by Popular Brands

 | Posted by A Moore 


Negro – Magic Steel Wool

Arab website Kabobfest.com reports that this steel wool is manufactured by the German company Oscar Weil, which is owned by the German-Jewish Weil family. The Weils were disowned by the Nazis, but the company was returned to the family after WWII. The “Negro – Magic Steel Wool” logo is actually what a Lebanese importing company uses to market and sell the steel wool in the Middle East. This steel wool is apparently the Middle East’s No. 1 seller.

Aunt Jemima

Aunt Jemima is arguably the most well-known and longest-lasting brand that used a racist caricature to market its product. When Charles Rutt and Charles G. Underwood created a self-rising flour in 1889, Rutt called it Aunt Jemima’s recipe after watching a minstrel show that featured a skit with a Southern mammy named Jemima. In 1989, Quaker Oats, which had purchased the Aunt Jemima Mill Co. in 1926, updated Jemima’s image to a modern African-American woman. But the name stayed.

Black Man Cookie

These weird cookies are made in Romania and are sold in Romania, Turkey and Albania. They are called “Black Man” cookies, obviously in reference to Black people. This edible but racist caricature wears a cape, the letter “B” on his chest, features wavy cornrow-looking hair and a large nose and lips. And, of course, the cookie is chocolate.


Uncle Ben’s Rice

The image of an elderly black man has appeared in ads for Uncle Ben’s Rice since 1946. Like Aunt Jemima, the caricature represented a racial stereotype that lingered after slavery. And, just like Aunt Jemima, the Uncle Ben logo has been updated to reflect a more modern Black person. Also in the same vein as the pancake brand, the name remains, carrying on the practice of whites addressing elderly African-Americans as “uncle” and “aunt” because the titles “Mr.” and “Mrs.” were deemed unsuitable for Blacks.

Chiquita Bananas

Generations of Americans have grown up eating Chiquita bananas. Some may remember Miss Chiquita, the sexually flamboyant Latin American caricature the banana company used to brand the fruit since 1944.

Miss Chiquita is widely thought to have been inspired byBrazilian actress and singer Carmen Miranda, who appeared in ads for Chiquita bananas. The actress has been accused of promoting the exotic Latina stereotype because she became famous for wearing pieces of fruit on her head and revealing, tropical clothing.

Some critics argue that this stereotype is even more offensive because the women, men and children who worked in banana farms toiled in grueling conditions, often falling gravely ill as a result of pesticide exposure.


 

Land O’ Lakes Butter

In 1928, officials from Land O’ Lakes welcomed the idea of using a Native-American woman’s image to sell its butter because the company is based in Minnesota — home of Hiawatha and Minnehaha.

H. Mathew Barkhausen III,  a writer who is of Cherokee and Tuscarora descent, has criticized the image of the Land O’ Lakes maiden, calling it stereotypical. She wears two braids in her hair, a headdress and an animal skin frock with beaded embroidery. Also, for some, the maiden’s serene countenance erases the suffering indigenous people have experienced in the United States.

“Like the hoary fantasies of ‘Indians’ and ‘Pilgrims’ sharing with quiet reverence the first ‘Thanksgiving,’ the Land O’ Lakes butter maiden helps white Americans sidestep and repress the horrific realities of what white Americ

Cream of Wheat

Nadra Kareem Nittle of About.com writes that when Emery Mapes of the North Dakota Diamond Milling Co. set out in 1893 to find an image to market his breakfast porridge, now called Cream of Wheat, he decided the portrayal of a subservient and uneducated Black chef was the best fit.

In a 1921 advertisement, the grinning chef — who was given the name Rastus — holds up a chalkboard with these words: “Maybe Cream of Wheat aint got no vitamines. I dont know what them things is. If they’s bugs they aint none in Cream of Wheat…”

Rastus represented the black man as a childlike, nonthreatening slave. The purpose was to portray African-Americans as content with a separate but (un)equal existence while making white Southerners of the time feel nostalgic about the slavery era. Though there are petitionscalling for its removal the caricature still remains on the promotional packaging for Cream of Wheat today.


 
Conguitos 

Conguitos are the Spanish version of M&Ms – a chocolate-covered peanut snack.  Notice how the name bears a resemblance to the name Congo, which may hint at where the inspiration for the sweets came from. Even if this is not true, the character on the front of the packet speaks for itself.

Fazer Licorice Sticks

For 80 years, Fazer licorice sticks have been wrapped in paper adorned with a “blackface” caricature that many Finnish citizens deemed as ”familiar and positive mental images,” according to the company. Pressure from the EU, Finnish Consumer Agency and Ombudsman, media and others have forced Fazer to change its “racist” mascot. In 2007, Fazer announced that it will phase out the use of the caricature in an effort to have more international appeal.

Eskimo Pie

Most people do not know that a slow-moving and largely unpublicized battle in North America’s northland has quietly raged on against the use of the word “Eskimo” to describe people with Inuit heritage. Therefore, the ice cream treat that uses the derogatory term for the North American tribe became the subject of controversy in 2009 when a Canadian Inuit woman said the product name insulted her heritage. However, the bad publicity has failed to persuade manufacturer Cadbury Pascall to consider a new name.

Watermelon Soda

Many Black people refuse to eat watermelon in public because of the racist stereotype, with roots embedded in slavery, that suggests they have undying love for the fruit. However, this didn’t stop the Miami-based Cawy Bottling Co. from marketing its watermelon soda with a mascot that depicts an image of a Black girl with ponytails eating watermelon on one side and an image of a white boy on the other.  In 2009, Target pulled the beverage from its shelves after coming under fire for selling the watermelon soda with the controversial images.

Darkie Toothpaste

A toothpaste known as “Darkie,” featuring a smiling blackface performer as its logo, was sold for years in various parts of Asia. It was originally manufactured in Shanghai by the Hawley & Hazel Chemical Co. before being bought by the Colgate-Palmolive Co. After pressure from shareholders, religious groups and Black people, Colgate-Palmolive renamed Darkie and redesigned its logo.

Changing the name from Darkie to Darlie didn’t seem to be much of a drastic change; for, while the logo did change to a smiling man of ambiguous racial background in a top hat, in Chinese, the world “darlie” means “black person,” according to Wikipedia.
The product, despite its infamous history, is still sold widely across Asia today, expan

World’s languages traced back to single African mother tongue: scientists.
New Zealand researchers have traced every human language — from English to Mandarin — back to an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
Scientists say they have traced the world’s 6,000 modern languages — from English to Mandarin — back to a single “mother tongue,” an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago.
New research, published in the journal Science, suggests this single ancient language resulted in human civilization — a Diaspora — as well as advances in art and hunting tool technology, and laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures.
The research, by Quentin Atkinson from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, also found that speech evolved far earlier than previously thought. And the findings implied, though did not prove, that modern language originated only once, an issue of controversy among linguists, according to the New York Times.
Before Atkinson came up with the evidence for a single African origin of language, some scientists had argued that language evolved independently in different parts of the world.
Atkinson found that the first populations migrating from Africa laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures by taking their single language with them. “It was the catalyst that spurred the human expansion that we all are a product of,” Atkinson said, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Atkinson traced the number distinct sounds, or phonemes — consonants, vowels and tones — in 504 world languages, finding compelling evidence that they can be traced back to a long-forgotten dialect spoken by our Stone Age ancestors, according to the Daily Mail.
Atkinson also hypothesized that languages with the most sounds would be the oldest, while those spoken by smaller breakaway groups would utilize fewer sounds as variation and complexity diminished.
The study found that some of the click-using languages of Africa have more than 100 phonemes, or sounds, whereas Hawaiian, toward the far end of the human migration route out of Africa, has only 13, the Times reported. English has about 45 phonemes.
The phoneme pattern mirrors the pattern of human genetic diversity as humans spread across the globe from sub-Saharan Africa around 70,000 years ago.

WikiHouse Unveils World’s First Two-Storey Open-Source House at London Design Festival | Via

WikiHouse, the open-source platform for designing and sharing house designs that anyone can be manufacture and assemble in days with no construction skills, has unveiled ‘ 4.0′ their first ever two-storey design at this year’s London Design Festival. Built by a team of volunteers and costing less than £50,000, the new prototype on display at The Building Centre also demonstrates the possibilities of other open source systems, with the code for the electrics, ventilation system and sensors all available on open-source platforms.

The prototype aims to educate visitors to the London Design Festival about how the WikiHouse works, with the interior layers of the building being exposed in places to show how the CNC-manufactured timber structure fits together, and how it becomes air-tight and waterproof through the use of Tyvek waterproofing and Equitone fibre cement cladding. The building also invites people to explore the rooftop terrace, the first time that a WikiHouse construction has incorporated a second storey.

Ellos trabajando junto al poderosísimo Club Bilderberg, la CFR (concilio de relaciones exteriores), la Comision Trilateral, el BIS (Club de Bancos Centrales del Mundo) el instituto Tavistok (expertos en control psicológico masivo televisivo) el Club de Roma, el FMI, el Banco Mundial, la CIA, el Pentágono, etc.
Forman la Elite que decide que país atacar, qué presidente matar, qué “atentado terrorista” financiar, qué crisis económica planear, qué espectáculo o “cortina de humo” inventar, qué “Gripe” utilizar, etc.

5. Familia Lazard (París, Francia)
6. Familia Mosés Israel Seif (Italia)
7. Familia Kuhn Loeb (Alemania y EEUU)
8. Familia Lehman Brothers (EEUU)…
9. Familia Goldman Sachs (EEUU) ….. ——-Desde el 23 de diciembre de 1913, El Banco Privado de la Reserva Federal (FED) se apoderó de los EEUU y la inmensa mayoría del mundo no lo sabe. Por voluntad de ellos y sus antecesores (Bank of America),se declaran guerras, se financian atentados (torres gemelas, atentado en Londres, atentado en Madrid), se asesinan presidentes (Jaime Roldos, Omar Torrijos, Kennedy, Warren Harding, McKinley, James Garfield, etc), trafican con armas de destrucción masiva (Carlyle, Bechtel, Lookheed Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics, McDonnel Douglas, Boeing, Northrop Grumman).

Estos banqueros son dueños de los medios de comunicación (FOX, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, BBC, New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, etc) utilizan la estrategia de distraer a la población con programas de TV superficiales, productos tecnológicos de corta duración, reality shows y dibujos animados que ridiculizan los valores familiares. Noticias de asesinatos y crímenes con el propósito de destruir poco a poco nuestra confianza en el prójimo, evitando la unión de las personas y una revuelta popular mundial.

La Reserva Federal de New York es co-propietaria de la NSA, la CIA (escuela de terroristas), el Pentagono, BIS-Banco de Pagos Internacionales (Suiza), FMI, Banco Mundial, FOMC, además de tener voto privilegiado en las Naciones Unidas y la OTAN.

La FED También permite que operen los carteles de la droga y el trafico de armas.

Poderosos de los Poderosos: conoce las principales familias mafiosas dueñas de la Reserva Federal:
Estas familias Mega-Ricas y sus descendientes, son intocables por la justicia y exonerados de impuestos de por vida. Cada vez que hacen un “salvataje económico” en realidad están COMPRANDO los bancos y financieras del mundo, apropiandose poco a poco del país al que “salvan”.

-La revista Forbes es una farsa que muestra sólo millonarios populares de segundo nivel como Bill Gates o Warren Buffet, logrando desviar la atención sobre las actividades ilícitas que cometen los Verdaderos Mega-Ricos dentro de la Reserva Federal….Si nunca escuchaste hablar de ellos, es simplemente porque descubrieron que el mundo se maneja mejor desde la clandestinidad (aprendieron de los errores que cometieron Hitler, Napoleon, Alejandro Magno y otros tantos conquistadores), que al ser muy evidentes en sus planes, no lograron ni la décima parte de lo que la Reserva Federal ha logrado hasta hoy: –adueñarse casi el Mundo entero ! –…. La mafia Banquero-Petrolera de la Reserva Federal es el origen de los males de nuestro mundo actual, Todas las guerras, atentados y provocaciones (contra Corea del Norte/Iran), el cuento de la “Gripe A” (negocio de la empresa Gilead Sciences de Donald Rumsfeld, secretario de defensa de Bush), la crisis mundial anticipada por la supercomputadora “High-Frecuency co-ubicada” de Wall Street. Todo esto y muchas cosas mas que nunca sabremos, tienen su origen en las decisiones tomadas por las familias banquero-petroleras mafiosas de la Reserva federal.

“Ahora lo sabes: los dueños de este banco son los que ocasionan el mal en el mundo, un Banco Privado que fue creado gracias a un Golpe de Estado secreto ocurrido en 1913, y que ahora dirige la nación mas poderosa del planeta.”..Evitemos las Próximas Guerras planeadas por la Reserva Federal de New York para obtener petróleo e instaurar gobiernos títeres en: Irán, Palestina, Libia, Costa del marfil, Yemen, Siria, Corea del Norte, Venezuela, Pakistán, Emiratos Árabes, Arabia Saudita, China, Rusia y las futuras guerras por el agua que se preparan contra los países de Latinoamérica, África, Oceanía y todo aquel que se atreva a defender su riqueza natural..
