Israeli Military Admits to Supporting Syrian Jihadis
By WashingtonsBlog 


July 25, 2015 "Information Clearing House" - "WashingtonsBlog" -The alternative press has notedformonths that Israel is supporting jihadis in Syria.  But Israel has consistently denied these allegations … until now. The Times of Israel reported 3 weeks ago: Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Monday that Israel has been providing aid to Syrian rebels, thus keeping the Druze in Syria out of immediate danger. Israeli officials have previously balked at confirming on the record that the country has been helping forces that are fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad.

“We’ve assisted them under two conditions,” Ya’alon said of the Israeli medical aid to the Syrian rebels, some of whom are presumably fighting with al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad. “That they don’t get too close to the border, and that they don’t touch the Druze.”Al Nusra is Al Qaed…

So news broke yesterday that authorities in Waller County, Texas, have "full faith" that Sandra Bland committed suicide. They said there was "no evidence of a struggle" on the body of the 28-year-old African-American woman who was ludicrously jailed last week after an alleged lane change violation.

The Politics of Timber Theft
Steal a Tree, Go to Jail; Steal a Forest, Meet the President
By Jeffrey St. Clair
Republished here with permission is a chapter from Jeffrey St. Clair’s 2008 book, Born Under A Bad Sky.  St. Clair has provided an outstanding report of corrupt government at work.  Even environmentalists in the Forest Service who are appointed to protect our national forests are part of the looting corporatocracy.
The power of money can be stronger than the power of government. We can see the power of money in the looting of our national forests. Even the environmental agencies established by Congress to protect the environment have fallen under corporate control.
Elected politicians, even if they intend otherwise, end up serving the corporatocracy. 
The impotence of government to serve the public interest and general welfare is an important lesson both for progressives, who believe in the curative powers of government, and libertarians, who believe that government is inimic…

Abstract The devastating civil war that began in Syria in March 2011 is the result of complex interrelated factors. The focus of the conflict is regime change, but the triggers include a broad set of religious and sociopolitical factors, the erosion of the economic health of the country, a wave of political reform sweeping over the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and Levant region, and challenges associated with climate variability and change and the availability and use of freshwater. As described here, water and climatic conditions have played a direct role in the deterioration of Syria’s economic conditions. There is a long history of conflicts over water in these regions because of the natural water scarc…

CLIMATE The Link Between Climate Change And ISIS Is RealBY JOE ROMMJUL 23, 2015 10:48AM CREDIT: AP/CHARLIE NEIBERGALL
Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley linked climate change to the rise of ISIS earlier this week. Conservativespounced. Score this round for O’Malley. For three years now, leading security and climate experts — and Syrians themselves — have made the connection between climate change and the Syrian civil war. Indeed, when a major peer-reviewed study came out on in March making this very case, Retired Navy Rear Admiral David Titley said it identifies “a pretty convincing climate fingerprint” for the Syrian drought.
