Iran Playing Obama Like a Persian Violin

Disclosure: This American Jewish reporter, a lifelong Zionist, is a great fan of traditional and popular Persian (and Arabic and Turkish) music. Click below for a video clip of a Persian violin-tonbak duet--fantastic! Throughout the reign of His Imperial Majesty Shah Mohammed Reza Pahalavi, of blessed memory, Persian culture flourished. Of course, that was before the craven Carter administration, precursor to the Obama administration, betrayed and abandoned the Shah--a pro-American, modernizing monarch--in a cynical, stupid attempt to ride the Islamist tiger without being consumed by it.

More disclosure: A great Iranian patriot, Daryoush Homayoun, once presented this reporter with a present--a collection of traditional Persian music, in the form of long-playing, vinyl records--which he cherishes to this day.

RWE Betting on Bio-Coal


RWE Innogy, a Dutch subsidiary of the giant German utility RWE, recently announced the construction of a plant to produce torrefied wood pellets--so-called "bio-coal"--which can be used as a substitute for coal in coal-fired power plants.

According to RWE, bio-coal could set the ground for the decarbonisation of "our existing coal power infrastructure."

The new plant, which will be built by a joint venture of RWE Innogy and Topell Energy, a world leader in torrefaction technology, will initially have a yearly production capacity of 60,000 tons of pellets. The plant will be operational by 2011.

Torrefaction involves a thermo-chemical treatment of biomass that removes water and volatiles and ultimately produces a solid fuel that resembles coal.

Essent will be the first company to use the produced pellets to be fired alongside coal in a plant for the first five years of production. The Essent coal-fired power plant has been tested to be capable of up to 50% biomass co-firing.

RWE currently consumes 40 million tons of coal per year and is committed to cutting this amount by 20% by the year 2020. Biomass is the only way forward, according to RWE executives.

WIth that in mind, the company is proceeding with the construction of one of the world’s biggest wood pellet plants. The plant, to be built in the United States, in the State of Georgia, will have a yearly output capacity of 750,000 tons. The pellets will be used in pure biomass power plants as well as for the co-firing of coal and biomass in the U.S. and Europe.

University of Tsukuba Teams With Tokyo Shibuya Clinic to Advance New Antibody Therapy for Cancer


By J. Ben-Naftali

SPECIAL TO CHINA CONFIDENTIAL

More good news from Japan.

The University of Tsukuba, which is one of Japan's most important and respected educational institutions, has forged an exclusive research relationship with one of the world's most exciting cancer research projects--a new antibody therapy developed by the Tokyo Shibuya Clinic.

The University of Tsukuba, located in the city of Tsukuba, Ibaraki Prefecture in the Kantō region of Japan, is ranked as one of the top Asian universities in the “Academic Ranking of World Universities” and is ranked 102-150 in the world. Global University Ranking places the university 41st worldwide.

The university, which has has had several Nobel Prize winners so far--namely, Leo Esaki, Hideki Shirakawa and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga--is increasingly known for its genetic research.

China Confidential has learned that University of Tsukuba and Tokyo Shibuya Clinic researchers will cooperate closely to advance the clinic's new antibody therapy, which has been approved as a treatment by the Ministry of Health. The new, "order-made" cancer therapy uses a patient's own cancer cells, taken from a biopsy specimen of the patient's primary cancer tumor, and the egg yolks of hens to produce order-made--meaning patient-specific--cancer-fighting antibodies, which are then orally administered to the patient. The cancerous cells must be extracted from the primary tumor.

The egg-yolk antibody therapy may be used in conjunction with radiation therapy and other cancer treatments.

The egg-yolk system for producing antibodies is already widely used in other medical and scientific applications.

It is generally estimated that roughly 7.2 to 7.5 million people worldwide die from cancer each year. Worldwide, cancer causes more deaths than AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined.

Israeli TV Analyzes Iran Strike Scenarios



A special report broadcast last week by Israel's Channel 2 showed how Israel could attack Iran over its nuclear program.

The Jewish State's air force could strike Iran by flying and refueling over Saudi Arabia, a distance of 1,600 km.

Alternatively, Israel could overfly Jordan and then to Iran, refueling over Iraq, close to the country's border with Iran. Another 1,600 km journey.

Still another scenario: Israel to Jordan to Saudi Arabia to Iran, a total of 2,000 km, refueling over Saudi Arabia near its borders with Iraq and Kuwait.

The IAF could also fly over Syria and Turkey, a total of 1,800 kms, refueling over southeast Turkey. But Turkey's pro-Islamist/Iran tilt makes this scenario unlikely.

Another unlikely route--a shortcut, actually--would be Israel to Syria to Iraq to Iran, a 1,500 km trip that would require refueling over northern Iraq.

Imagine Iran With Nukes


Click here to read Clifford May's excellent essay. An excerpt:

Is there a chance that Iran will give nuclear weapons to anti-American terrorists -- or attack the Great Satan directly? That is hard to imagine -- almost as hard as it was a few years ago to imagine that a stateless terrorist group based in rural Afghanistan would organize the hijacking of passenger jets and use them as missiles to attack Washington and New York.

Jim Woolsey, who served as CIA director under President Bill Clinton, and Rebeccah Heinrichs, an adjunct fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, recently noted: "Iranian military writings show the mullahs recognize the potential" of launching a nuclear-armed missile from a ship near one of our coasts to create an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that would destroy "the electric grid and electrical systems across a wide swath of U.S. territory." The result: "unimaginable economic devastation" and tens of thousands of deaths.


China Confidential has long focused on the very real threat of an EMP attack, which would overnight plunge the United States back into the 19th century--without the resources of the 19th century. In fact, experts estimate that only 10% of the population would survive an EMP attack.

Not for nothing, analysts assert, have Iran and North Korea developed and tested concealed systems for firing ballistic missiles from cargo ships.

Again, Castro Appears in Public



Cuban Communist leader Fidel Castro on Friday warned the nation's diplomats of the possibility of a nuclear war. It was his fifth public appearance in 10 days.

Castro visited the Foreign Ministry in Havana and predicted that a nuclear war was at hand if the United States and Israel continue to push for sanctions against Iran over its nuclear programs.

He also predicted that the United States would attack North Korea.

The former president/retired dictator took questions for more than 90 minutes from the ambassador corps.

Castro disappeared from public view following emergency intestinal surgery in July 2006 and ceded power to his younger brother, now President Raul Castro.

It is unclear why the man who ruled Cuba for 49 years after taking power in a 1959 revolution has returned to public view.

Experts are puzzled, as reported here.

Castro's other recent appearances include a meeting with workers at a science think tank and taking in a dolphin show at the national aquarium.

Zionist Leader Planned to Assassinate Hitler


Shlomo Nakdimon reports for Ynetnews:

In December 1939, four months after the beginning of World War II, Zionist leader Ze'ev Jabotinsky paid a visit to a retired 61-year-old British colonel.

The colonel, Richard Henry Meinertzhagen, served as an advisor at the War Office in London and knew Jabotinsky from his service in the British army in the Land of Israel after the Ottoman era in 1918.

The colonel documented his conversation with the Zionist leader in his private diary, which was published in London in 1959 as a book titled, "Middle East Diary, 1917-1956." Here is a short segment from the conversation:

Jabotinsky: I have brought a plan to bomb Hitler and the entire Nazi leadership.

Meinertzhagen: An ambitious plot.

Jabotinsky: An attainable one.

Meinertzhagen: Do elaborate.

Jabotinsky: A number of high-ranking Nazis in Munich must be assassinated. Their funeral will require the arrival of their senior comrades, including Hitler. Bombs containing 100 kilograms of explosives will be concealed in one of the coffins. As all the Nazis gather around the grave, 100 kilograms of bombs will explode and they'll all move on to the next world.

Meinertzhagen: Who will activate the bomb system?

Jabotinsky: The Jewish gravedigger in Munich. He's a friend of mine.

Beirut Airport Under Hezbollah Hegemony



By Elias Bejjani


Day after day, unfolding events show plainly and with no doubt that Hezbollah fully controls Beirut's International Airport while the presence of the Lebanese official authorities at this vital and dynamic facility is mere symbolic, totally marginalized and practically does not exist at all. This terrorist Iranian armed militia has the upper hand inside the airport and all over its vicinity that is adjacent to its mini southern suburb mini state (Al Dahya Al Janobia). In reality it is Hezbollah's air port par excellence and not Lebanon's.

Hezbollah has installed dozens of its own run cameras all over the airport and closely monitors around the clock offices, corridors, waiting halls, runways, control tower, entrances, exits, stores etc. Meanwhile the airport's security chief, Brigadier General Wafiq Choucair, is loyal to Hezbollah and not to the Lebanese official authorities. In 2008 when the Saniora Lebanese government tried to transfer Choucair to another post, Hezbollah was boldly defiant, and militarily invaded and occupied the Sunni West Beirut and tried but failed to occupy the Druze stronghold of Mt. Lebanon. Hundreds of people were killed and injured during the bloody invasion. Hezbollah's general secretary, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, called the invasion a glorious day.


A Country Held Hostage

Hezbollah has been holding the airport, as well as the whole country, hostage since 2005. In this terrorism context dozens of Lebanese nationals from Diaspora who support the sovereignty, freedom and independence of their homeland and oppose Hezbollah's hegemony and occupation were either unlawfully banned from entering Lebanon via the airport, or humiliated, threatened, detained arbitrarily, and wrongfully and falsely accused of treason. Many of them were flagrantly harassed and badly intimidated before they could return to their Diaspora countries.

Hezbollah freely uses the airport for importing all kinds of weapons and for all other illegal trafficking. Jihadists enter and leave through the airport freely as well as Iranian militant personal and officials. In this realm two Lebanese MP'S who opposed Hezbollah and Syria were assassinated only a few hours after they disguisedly and secretly returned to Lebanon via the airport (Gobran Tueini September 13/2005 and Antoine Ghanem in December 20/2007). Hezbollah's Camera's taped their entrance and assailants took care of them.

The latest Beirut airport - Hezbollah scandal unfolded last week when presumably a terrorist plot to explode a Saudi-owned (Nasair company) Airbus 320 failed.

News agencies stated that on Friday 09/10 passengers on board a Saudi aircraft at the Beirut airport runway reported seeing a man in a baseball cap with a backpack make a dash for the plane as it prepared to taxi. He stumbled once and then continued towards the plane. The passengers and flight attendants informed the pilot, but he did not take any action and continued takeoff without informing the Beirut control tower that anything was amiss.


Body Found

The Nas Air flight XY 720 that took off from Beirut airport late Friday with 130 passengers on board including high ranking Saudi military officers, safely landed Saturday morning in the Saudi capital, Riyadh. At that time a body of an unidentified man was found by a maintenance worker while inspected the right rear landing gear of the plane. Saudi authorities reported that they found along with the dead man a picture for his wife, Jihadist verses and a picture for Al Khomeini. On Monday, after a series of investigations it was officially announced in Beirut that the man's name was Firas Haidar, a Shiite Lebanese, national from the area of Burj al-Barajneh near Beirut airport.
 
The question is how could this man alone and peacefully manage to freely infiltrate and fool all the security checkpoints and then easily reach the airport runway unnoticed by the dozens of cameras that are installed all over the facility? And how he was able without any kind of resistance or usage of weapons or force to run to the plane carrying his bag, climb to its wheel bay and grab hold of a wheel without the control tower noticing his presence before the jet took off?

It is very clear that the man was moving inside the airport freely, relaxed and not paying any attention to the cameras or to security personnel measures. This simply means that the airport officials on all levels were either facilitating his mission or deeply sleeping.


Jihadist Mission

By mere analysis based on logic and available facts one can hypothetically assume the following scenario: The man was a Jihadist assigned by his terrorist superiors to explode the Saudi plane by putting a kind of sophisticated explosives (that can be detonated via a remote control) at the wheel bay after all the plane's checking and supplying procedures were over, and then to leave the wheel bay before the plane takes off. It is worth mentioning that a big pair of scissors fell from him when the plane took off and was found later on the runway. Apparently his superiors had an upper hand inside the airport and accordingly were able to guarantee and secure his free movement and facilitate his mission.  

Why did he fail? Presumably, his stumbling before reaching the plane disturbed his scheduled time span, made him very nervous and perhaps the explosives fell with the scissors and accordingly did not have enough time execute the terrorist act and to get down before the plane took off.

Why were the scissors only found and nothing else? Again, presumably, and hypothetically those who sent him and secured his free and unnoticed entrance would have collected all the stuff that he either left behind or fell from him on the runway. 

Hezbollah who might have assigned the man to carry the terrorist mission tagged him as mentally unstable, a camouflaging tactic the Egyptian government resorts to all the time to cover terrorists and Jihadists who assault Christians in Egypt. Meanwhile Lebanese newspapers said the man knew exactly what he was doing because two cigarette filters were found inside his ears to safeguard him from the plane's loud noise.

In his bid to abort and block any kind of investigation, Hezbollah's strong man, the airport's security chief, Brigadier General Wafiq Choucair, submitted his resignation to the Interior minister. The government will not dare to accept the resignation and will not risk to go through the hassle of appointing a replacement in which Hezbollah will have the last saying. 

Definitely, the formal investigation in the incident is going to be faked and forged and no one shall ever know what actually happened because Hezbollah will not allow the Lebanese authorities to exercise freely their duties and responsibilities as was the situation in many previous similar circumstances.

This very serious incident sheds light on the Ethiopian plane disaster that exploded in last January a few minutes after taking off from Beirut airport and all of its passengers were killed. One wonders if the same tactic was used to explode it? 

In conclusion, this serious incident will remain a mystery with no answers while similar incidents will continue to take place as long as Hezbollah and not the Lebanese Government dominates, controls and runs the Beirut airport.

Itochu increases interest in Big Uranium Project


World Nuclear News reports:

Japanese trading house Itochu is set to become one of the largest shareholders of Extract Resources, owner of the Rössing South uranium project in Namibia, after agreeing to acquire a 10.3% stake in the company.

Itochu's wholly owned Australian subsidiary, Nippon Uranium Resources (Australia), is buying a total of 25,107,278 shares in Extract, the vast majority of which are the entire former holding of energy junior Polo Resources. The remaining shares are being sold by two other companies which are linked to Polo. The 22,550,849 shares making up Polo's interest are being sold for A$7 ($6.1) per share, netting Polo some A$157.9 million ($137.9 million) in total proceeds. The sales are subject to relevant approvals by Polo shareholders and Australia's Foreign Investment Review Board.

Namibia's Rössing South, also known as the Husab uranium project, is described by Itochu as one of the largest uranium projects in the world. Feasibility studies are currently under way at the site, and Extract plans to produce 5700 tonnes of uranium annually from an open pit by 2014.

Extract owns 100% of Rössing South, and in turn, Extract's main shareholder is Kalahari Minerals, in which Itochu acquired a 14.9% stake in May 2010. "As a significant shareholder of leading uranium companies, Itochu envisions contributing greatly to the stable supply of uranium to Japan," the company said in its press release.

According to Itochu, it expects the project to receive "full support" from the Japanese government: when Itochu bought its Kalahari stake earlier this year, the state-owned Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC) said it would extend some 4 billion yen ($43 million) of exploration financing to the project.

Torrefaction is a roasting-like technology that removes virtually all the moisture from raw wood, making it hydrophobic and allowing for it to be transported, stored, ground and pulverized, and injected into furnaces just like coal.

From Israel With Love

No wonder the Islamist maniacs hate the Jewish State ... for the same reasons they hate the United States. Click below for another glimpse of the real Israel ... the Israel CNN and the liberal media will never show you.

Obama Confident He Can Lead Israel to Slaughter


The worst-ever President for Israel and the United States is confident Israel will not surprise the U.S. with an attack on nuclear-arming Iran, as reported here.

Obama's election assured Islamonazi Iran that it would have the time it needed to achieve its atomic aims. His foreign policy--a policy of appeasement--is an utter failure.


EXTRA: US BEGS IRAN NOT TO STONE WOMAN
The Islamist-appeasing Obama administration is reduced to pleading with the turbaned tyranny.

Click here for more background on the horrific case. This is the monstrous mullahocracy--the human filth--that Obama actually attempted to align with, transcending traditional appeasement.

Where is the outrage?

How can so-called progressives--today's fellow travelers and Stalinist sympathizers--continue to defend fascistic, fundamentalist Islam, a plague that threatens to destroy civilization as we know it? How could the U.S. electorate, only seven years after the Islamist mega-attacks on New York and Washington, D.C., have possibly voted into the highest office in the land a mysterious, Muslim-born (according to barbaric Islamic law), Third World ideologue who was clearly bent on appeasing the most repressive and reactionary scum on earth?

How could American Jews have overwhelmingly voted for this man?

How can any Jews still support the so-called Democratic Party, an antidemocratic organization that is undermining Israel while paving the way for Islamist nuclear attacks on America?

Obama Betrays Israel on Nuclear Deterrent Issue


Click here for the story.

Alone among pro-Israel blogs and media outlets, China Confidential has repeatedly warned that the Obama administration plans to focus attention on--and ultimately neutralize--Israel's presumed nuclear deterrent. Click here for a recent report.

Sadly, we have been proven right.


POSTSCRIPT: At the risk of coming across like a conspiracy nut, the election of Obama in 2008, seven years after 9/11, increasingly looks like a victory for political and economic elites bent on appeasing, rather than fighting and defeating, radical Islam.

Notorious Islamist Terrorist Dies


Click here for the news, here for an odious propaganda piece in an influential, pro-appeasement rag, and here and here for background on the so-called spiritual leader of Hitlerian Hezbollah.

Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah was a mass murderer. He blessed and was involved in the planning of the suicide bombing of the United States Embassy in Beirut in April 1983, which killed 63 people; the October '83 bombing in Beirut of a French paratroopers' barracks, which killed 58 people; and the bombing of the U.S. Marines' barracks in Beirut, which killed 241 people.

Fadlallah was also deeply involved in the wave of kidnapping, torture and murder of Westerners that terrorized Lebanon in the early 1980s. The hostage-taking continued for about a decade--with Fadlallah's "blessing."

"I say that America, in its policy that aspires to impose hegemony on the world is an evil with no good in it," he once said.

In addition to the kidnapping, torture and killing in Beirut of CIA station Chief Bill Buckley and U.S. Marine Colonel Rich Higgins, and the murder of U.S. Navy diver Robbie Stethem when Hezbollah hijacked a TWA flight in 1985, Fadlallah had a hand in the following crimes: the kidnapping in Beirut of American University acting president David Dodge, and the kidnapping and killing of the university's president, Malcolm Kerr; the kidnapping of Jeremy Levin, CNN's Beirut bureau chief, who was targeted because he was both Jewish and an American; and the kidnapping and torture in Beirut of Reverend Benjamin Weir, who was held for 16 months at a location known to Fadlallah.

The U.S. never retaliated for the above atrocities.

'Moderate' Mullah Says US Will Fail to 'Bully' Iran

A former Iranian president and so-called moderate, hailed in the media for supposedly supporting the opposition, has spoken out against the United States. Click here for the story.

Moderate Islamism is an oxymoron, like moderate Nazism.

There is no diplomatic solution to the problem of Islamist Iran. The monstrous, missile-mad, nuclear-arming mullahocracy must go. The regime must be ended before it ends Israel--and the U.S. Iran can't be contained; neither can it be appeased.

Instead of preserving the peace, appeasement--the foundation of the Obama administration's utterly failed foreign policy--has made war with Iran inevitable. Will the conflict be fought on Iranian terms?

Russian Spies Spill the Beans


Russian spies reveal their true identities, as reported here.

The case is bizarre, mysterious, a throwback to the early days of the Cold War.

What were they and their spy bosses thinking? What did they hope to discover that they could not learn from the Internet and television?

Agents of influence--that makes sense.

Terrorist sleeper cells--that makes sense.

Apparently amateurish spies burrowing ... in the suburbs ... and lower Manhattan ... makes no sense.

Unless ... there is more to it, more spies, more networks. But, for what purpose, in this day and age?
