NO

Sorry about that
How can we improve it?

It is stupid that Google+ does not respond my complaint (and the complaints of other people). I repeat: I was posting; my post was removed; I posted again; my post was removed again; I posted 3 or 4 times again; My post was put back; I removed all the posts because I am not a spammer; Google+ removed the original post again; I was angry and I put back my post 3 or 4 times again; the game started again until the moment that I could not longer post and Google was sending me always the message ‘Your post was not shared – Please try again’. My comments were also blocked and I had some problems with my internet-connection. Then I saw the following message on the head of my account: ‘Access limited until 24 12 2016 ’. Then Google+ was sending me this mail: ‘Dear Tom Jacobs, We have determined that your posts have repeatedly or egregiously violated our User Content and Conduct Policy. Spamming, including sending unwanted promotional or commercial content, or engaging in unwanted or mass solicitation, is not permitted. Your access to Google+ will be limited for two weeks. If you continue to violate our policies, your access to Google+. Please review our policies to avoid violating them in the future.

If you choose to leave, you can make a copy of your Google+ data first. If you like, you can also disable Google+ entirely. Yours sincerely,The Google+ team.’

I responded and I told them exactly what had happened. But my complaint was not taken serious. I saw also that some posts that I had removed were put back on my account. For someone who visits my account, it’s now like I was really spamming.
Yesterday I was seeing that some pictures were removed from my account.

(Today I saw that a number of pictures of some blogs and websites were removed)

Thank you for your feedback

Assassination of Russian ambassador

c0diondwgaaaupi

December 20th, 2016 – A rather inconsiderate tweet made by Daily Mail regarding the shocking assassination of Russian ambassador to Turkey sparked a barrage of criticism in social media.

While other media outlets focused on apparently mundane and trivial things like the killer’s motive or the potential consequences of the assassination, Daily Mail opted to report the thing that really matters – the assassin’s dressing style. “Russian ambassador shot by a smartly dressed man in a suit and tie,” the newspaper tweeted.

Mainstream media destabilizing Syria

syria-victims-5

Mainstream Media’s Fake News About Aleppo Designed to ‘Destabilize Syria’
Dec 20th, 2016 – Mainstream media’s biased approach to covering the situation in Aleppo is clearly aimed at destabilizing Syria and damaging the interests of Iran and Russia, journalist Sebastiano Caputo told Sputnik Italy.

In an interview with Sputnik’s Italian edition, journalist Sebastiano Caputo slammed mainstream media outlets’ biased approach to covering the situation in Aleppo which he said is all about destabilizing Syria and damaging the interests of Moscow and Tehran.

According to him, there is a constant stream of manipulated information, and mainstream journalists instead of traveling to the scene, focus on copying the news from television channels Al-Arabiya and Al-Jazeera, which are controlled by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, respectively. These are the countries, he said, which have had their hands stained with the blood for more than five years, and which have not the slightest interest in providing any objective information. “The purpose of their news is to try to destabilize Syria and deal a blow to Iran and Russia, because Saudi Arabia and Qatar are the US’ allies in the Middle East. Covering the situation in Aleppo, Western journalists use anonymous sources and fake Twitter accounts, among other things. The Western media is hypocritical, and they show ordinary people allegedly being killed by only one side of the conflict,” Caputo said.

Germany: Nine people killed and 45 injured at Berlin’s Breitscheidplatz

December 20th, 2016

French president François Hollande tweeted his condolences to Germany:

“I express my solidarity and compassion to Chancellor Merkel, to the German people and to the families of the victims of Berlin,” he wrote.

——

A statement from the White House condemns “what appears to have been a terrorist attack” in Berlin, and noting that the US government has been in touch with German officials and offers assistance as required.

The statement by National Security Council spokesperson Ned Price reads in full:

The United States condemns in the strongest terms what appears to have been a terrorist attack on a Christmas Market in Berlin, Germany, which has killed and wounded dozens. We send our thoughts and prayers to the families and loved ones of those killed, just as we wish a speedy recovery to all of those wounded. We also extend our heartfelt condolences to the people and government of Germany. We have been in touch with German officials, and we stand ready to provide assistance as they recover from and investigate this horrific incident. Germany is one of our closest partners and strongest allies, and we stand together with Berlin in the fight against all those who target our way of life and threaten our societies.

The US, France, Britain and Germany supplied weapons to the Middle East

As a reminder:

German Journalist Who Interviewed Syrian ISIS Daesh Commander: US Providing Weapons to Terrorists

71-105684153-null-25-09-2016-16-06-06-978-1

October 8th, 2016 – Last month, German journalist Jurgen Todenhofer, the first Western journalist to be given access to Daesh (ISIS) controlled territory, conducted an explosive interview with a Nusra Front commander in Syria. Soon afterward, he was accused of ‘fabricating’ the interview. Speaking to Sputnik Deutschland, Todenhofer responded to his critics.

Late last month, an unnamed militant believed to be a senior Nusra Front commander told Todenhoffer in an interview that his group had received advanced weapons, including BGM TOW anti-tank missiles, from the United States.

The sensational (and damning) interview soon spread around the world, and soon German media engaged in damage control began claiming that the interview was a fake. The detractors’ main allegation focused on the territory where the interview was conducted; skeptics even suggested that the terrorist militant was actually a Syrian government plant.

Speaking to Sputnik Deutschland about the now famous interview, Todenhofer explained that he never had any illusions that his journalistic effort, and its shocking revelations about the extent of Western support for Islamist terrorists, would cause a strong reaction, “both from terrorists and from those who support mainstream Western policy in the Middle East.”

“I think that most of those who criticized me wanted to divert attention from two things, [first of all] from the issue of the supply of weapons to the Middle East, which is really indisputable. The US, France, Britain and Germany supply weapons to the Middle East. I believe that this is a very serious problem that needs to be discussed. And these weapons aren’t there to shoot fireworks – they are there to conduct wars with.”

Secondly, Todenhofer noted,

“they want to distract from the fact that my interview – and not just this one but my earlier statements as well, destroy the mainstream worldview. This worldview suggests that in Syria, there is supposedly only one side fighting – namely the Syrian government and the Russians. If that were true, the war would have ended a long time ago. The truth is that there are two sides fighting a brutal war against one another.”

Commenting on the details of his interview with the Nusra Front commander, the journalist recalled that at first, it wasn’t even clear whether the jihadist would agree to filming.

“At first, there was a great deal of stress, because we were surrounded by gunmen in masks, and our driver feared that we had been trapped. But the conversation went smoothly. This commander is not a politician – not a Salafist, not a fanatic; he’s just a mercenary, who managed to serve in the ranks of at least two rebel groups – a field commander with perhaps about 200 people under his command. And since he is not a politician, he spoke openly about the things he knows.”

Incidentally, for the sceptics out there, the journalist emphasized the commander did not actually say that his group received weapons ‘directly from the Americans.’

“He said ‘we directly received American weapons’. He did not say whether this was from a country or organization serving as an intermediary, but there is no doubt [that this is going on]. Everyone knows that the US and other countries supply weapons to the rebels; they say that they supply them to the ‘moderate opposition’, but we all know that some of these weapons are then passed to radical rebels and terrorists.”

Syria: American senators attack Russian banks

american-senators-attack-russian-banks

As a reminder: ‘Sour over Syria: American senators attack Russian banks’

Sep 18th, 2013 – In Cold War style, US Senators have urged the Obama administration to freeze assets of three major Russian banks, ban their activities in the US, and deny employees’ entry into the country on the suspicion they are doing business with the Assad regime.

Having failed to galvanize allies for military action, and politically trumped by President Putin’s proposal for peaceful intervention in Syria, American congressmen have now turned to soft power to regain a grip on the Syria conflict.  The senators are blaming Russia’s banking giants VTB, Gazprombank, and Vnesheconombank -the state development bank known as VEB– for ‘undermining’ UN sanctions by ‘aiding Assad’.

“The Syrians could not conduct this war without Russian financing,” Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat who represents the state of Connecticut, said at a US policy meeting on Iran and Syria at the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington DC.

“We can freeze their assets. We can stop them from doing business in the United States, prevent their employees from traveling here and, in effect, impose very heavy financial pain on the Russians,” Blumenthal said.

Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut is a staunch supporter of Israel

WASHINGTON, February 3th, 2014— The last time the nation’s most potent pro-Israel lobbying group lost a major showdown with the White House was when President Ronald Reagan agreed to sell Awacs surveillance planes to Saudi Arabia over the group’s bitter objections.
Since then, the group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, has run up an impressive record of legislative victories in its quest to rally American support for Israel, using a robust network of grass-roots supporters and a rich donor base to push a raft of bills through Congress. Typically, they pass by unanimous votes.
But now Aipac, as the group is known, once again finds itself in a very public standoff with the White House. Its top priority, a Senate bill to impose new sanctions on Iran, has stalled after stiff resistance from President Obama, and in what amounts to a tacit retreat, Aipac has stopped pressuring Senate Democrats to vote for the bill.
Officials at the group insist it never called for an immediate vote and say the legislation may yet pass if Mr. Obama’s effort to negotiate a nuclear agreement with Iran fails or if Iran reneges on its interim deal with the West. But for the moment, Mr. Obama has successfully made the case that passing new sanctions against Tehran now could scuttle the nuclear talks and put America on the road to another war.
Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, a staunch supporter of Israel, is one of 16 Democrats who signed on to the bill, along with 43 of the Senate’s 45 Republicans, bringing it to within a few votes of a veto-proof majority. Now Mr. Blumenthal says the Senate should hold off on a vote to give Mr. Obama breathing room for diplomacy.
“There’s been an unquestionable, undeniable shift in the perception of national security,” Mr. Blumenthal said. “I’m sensitive to the feelings, the resistance, the aversion of the general public to any kind of American military engagement.”

How Belgium Became Home to Recent Terror Plots (2)

syria-general-idris-free-syrian-army-guyverhofstadt

September 27th, 2012 – Some weeks ago the Belgian Senator Nele Lijnen said that she intends to launch a discussion at the Belgian Senate regarding the fact that the terrorists in Syria possess weapons made in Belgium.

But Belgium is not only responsible for sending weapons for terrorist bomb attacks in Syria.

The Belgian State Security knows that Belgian jihadists are going to Syria for organizing these bomb attacks.

The U.S. and its allies work all on the same way: They send money and weapons to the jihadists coming from their country to carry out bomb attacks in Syria.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who has been posted twice to the Republic of Korea embassy in Washington, D.C. and served as Director-General for American Affairs in 1990–1992, conceals these matters and talks about a ‘civil war’ all the time.

NATO’s headquarters are in Brussels…

—————————-

August 3th, 2012

The Belgian State Security “has not confirmed” the rumor that Belgian jihadists are fighting in Syria. Thursday, the newspapers ‘Het Belang van Limburg’ and ‘Gazet van Antwerpen’ argued the opposite: “The State Security confirmed the presence of” Belgium”.

It is uncommon, that the Belgian State Security issued a statement Thursday to correct statements that were attributed to him: “The State Security (…) confirms that Syria is a destination for international Islamist fighters. But the State Security has not been confirmed (…) that there are Belgians among them. ”    In short, if the Security denies to have confirmed does not mean – this is important – it can deny the information.

Originally Flemish newspapers relied on a report by Reuters, dated July 31, citing statements from “several rebel commanders in the north-west Syria,” according to which “Muslims in Great Britain, Belgium and the United States had joined the Free Syrian Army (SLA)”. On July 13th, Reuters pointed out a flood “of thousands of assault rifles Belgian FN FAL was in the hands of the rebels”.

In its annual reports, the Belgian State Security explains how and why she follows people attracted by fighting abroad: there was attention for Iraq, then, from 2010, to the movement towards Pakistan-Afghanistan border area; Finally, most recently, to new locations: “If the Afghan-Pakistan area, more than Iraq, was still popular in 2010 with the majority of volunteers for jihad”, the Belgian State Security wrote in his latest report, “some of them began to plot their way to Yemen, Somalia and the Caucasus”. And Syria now? “Obviously. Where they are beaten, those who return and who actually participated in the fighting have gained knowledge on how to handle weapons, strategy and tactics of war,” noted the Belgian State Security yesterday. “This is the central reason for the Belgian concern”.

Syria will be rebuild

Syrian President Bashar Assad

Syria will not allow countries supporting terrorists on its market 

December 15th, 2016

“We won’t be able to distinguish between the private sector in such states and their official policies,” the Syrian president said
Syria will not issue permission to operate in its market for any company from a country that pursues anti-Syrian policy and supports terrorists, President Bashar Assad said in a televised interview with the Rossiya 24 channel on Wednesday.
“The Syrian people will not let in any company from the countries pursuing anti-Syrian policy that were calling against our country’s territorial integrity or supporting terrorists. It’s absolutely evident,” Assad said. “We won’t be able to distinguish between the private sector in such states and their official policies.”
Syria’s head of state is convinced that after the end of war most Syrian business people will return home and will be involved in the country’s restoration.
“As far as Syria is concerned, we have very good material resources in the private sector belonging to those entrepreneurs who are in the country or left it long ago or during the crisis,” he went on to say. “Most of them will come back to Syria as here they have homes and property. They will return to restore their country so there will be an economic turnover. In this regard, we do not have any fears, we need just time.”
The states friendly to Syria or at least neutral will be given priority in the revival of its economy, namely Russia, Iran and China, he said.
Earlier, Syria’s Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad had said that the Syrian government had collected precise data on damage in all sectors of the economy and infrastructure. The diplomat was hopeful that the Syrians “will be capable of restoring their country and rebuilding its infrastructure.”
