Tam McGraw


Glasgow 'crime boss', Tam 'The Licensee' McGraw, has died 'of a heart attack' in Glasgow.

McGraw owned security companies, taxi firms, pubs, and a property portfolio in Scotland, Ireland and Spain worth 'at least £10m'. McGraw's empire is said to be worth £30 million in total. (In Scotland it has been estimated that 47% of individuals are earning under £10,000 per year.)

Allegedly, McGraw's main income came from the sale of heroin and cocaine. It has been claimed that McGraw was backed by corrupt police officers, who passed on confiscated drugs which McGraw then sold on the streets. - Gangster reign of The Licensee brought to end by heart attack / GANGSTER NO1 IS DEAD'

After one failed robbery, McGraw was arrested while trying to flee on foot. Charges were dropped and he was released the following morning. (According to the Mail on Sunday, 29 January 2006, only 3% of crimes in Scotland result in convictions.)

One of the McGraw family businesses, the Caravel pub, was suddenly bulldozed after the police learnt that it had played a role in the deaths of Joe "Bananas" Hanlon and Bobby Glover. The demolition prevented a planned forensic investigation. - An inglorious end to the shadowy life of a feared gangland criminal

Reg McKay, in The Daily Record, 29 August 2005, reported that a street brawl between police left people scrutinising the cosy relationship between the Licensee (McGraw) and 'his police officer pals.'

"One of the Serious Crime Squad grabbed McGraw and tried to take him away from his Scottish Crime Squad captors. Tug of war was on. Then one man threw a punch and bedlam broke out with police wrestling, kicking and butting each other as McGraw stood in the middle of the battle totally ignored.
"Locals gathered for the best entertainment they'd had in years. Duelling rozzers. One or two joined in, taking the chance of a free swipe at a copper. Eventually peace was restored and the two police outfits went into confab. Whatever was said, the handcuffs were unlocked and Thomas McGraw walked back to his flat, a free man once again."

The Daily Record wrote: "Local uniforms and CID could often be found sitting in the McGraws' home drinking tea and smoking.

"When McGraw bought The Caravel pub, certain well-known detectives were in regularly, drinking heavily and never putting their hand in their pockets. It was too cosy."
.
McGraw was a friend of loyalist (Northern Irish protestant) terror chief Johhny 'Mad Dog' Adair. 'Both men were deeply involved in the drug trade between Scotland and Ulster (Northern ireland)' ( McGRAW: PETTY THIEF TO A £30M FORTUNE HOW DRUG-DEALING )
.
According to the Daily record: "Deals between crime boss Tam McGraw and the IRA saw a unit of republican heavies travel to Glasgow at The Licensee's expense to protect him... (summer of 2002) when hitmen were said to be lining up an assassination attempt." Daily Record - Scottish News - PART TWO OF A DAILY RECORD SPECIAL ...
.
A rival to McGraw was Arther Thompson. Former 'Glasgow godfather' Thompson reportedly was selling guns to the UVF (Ulster Volunteer Force). "He got caught, and decided to turn grass for MI5. They then told him he could pretty much start the drugs trade in Glasgow." - Donal MacIntyre - erutufonnofuture

Palestinians working for the CIA


In Gaza, for over 10 years, the Palestinian organisation Fatah ran an intelligence network.

That network had been set up with the help of the CIA.

Hamas is now in control in Gaza.

Hamas say they have now uncovered remarkable intelligence information from three locations linked to Fatah strongman Mohammed Dahlan. Reportedly, Dahlan has been an important CIA ally in Gaza since at least 1996. (Hamas Victory Brings Secrets)

Hamas alleges it has discovered videos used in a sexual-blackmail operation run by friends of the CIA inside Fatah's security services.

Hamas reports that it has discovered detailed evidence of Fatah-controlled spy operations carried out in Arab and Muslim countries (such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates) for the benefit of the U.S. and other foreign governments.

Hamas claims that Fatah intelligence agents worked with Israeli intelligence to target Islamist leaders for assassination.

How Israel can be defeated without violence


How might the Palestinians achieve the setting up of a viable state, without the use of violence?

Here are some points to ponder:

1. Israel's defence industry has done well as a result of 9/11 and other acts of allegedly 'fake' terror. ( Vigorous but vulnerable ). So the Palestinians and their friends should avoid getting involved as patsies in false flag activities. Palestinians, and their friends, should learn to ignore the agents provocateurs within their ranks.

2. Acts of violence by Palestinians must be avoided, as they tend to be counter productive. Israel wants to portray the Palestinians as mad Moslems, so that Israel will continue to get the sympathy of the American public. The Palestinians should realise that the leaders who advocate violence may be working, wittingly or unwittingly, for the Israelis.

3. Israel relies heavily on its young, educated, multilingual technicians. Friends of the Palestinians should try to lure these people away to safe, well paid jobs outside Israel. Friends of the Palestinians should try to ensure that there is a boycott of the products of the Israeli tech industry.

4. Productivity in Israel's traditional industries is falling; Israel is becoming less competitive. ( Vigorous but vulnerable ). Palestinians can patiently wait while Israel weakens.

5. In Israel, the % of families below the poverty line has gone up from 17% in 1998 to 20% in 2007, while the proportion of poor children has risen from 23% to 35%. Some poor Jews might decide to leave Israel.

6. Israel relies on foreign workers to do much of the hard, low-paid work. The Palestinians and their friends need to try to politely persuade these workers to stay away from Israel.

7. Israel's Jewish population is around 5 million; the Israeli Arab population is just over 1 million. The total number of Palestinians (living in Israel, the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, and elsewhere) is well over 9 million. The growth rate of the Israeli Arab population is 2.5%, while the growth rate of the Israeli Jewish population is 1.4%. The growth rate of the Israeli Arab population is slowing down (from 3.3% in 1999 to 2.5% in 2006). The Israeli Arab population needs to produce more children.

8. Israel receives billions of dollars from the USA each year. Since 1973, Israel has cost the United States about $1.6 trillion. That is more than $5,700 per American. (Economist tallies swelling cost of Israel to US csmonitor.com). The Palestinians and their friends should make more effort to persuade the USA to stop giving money to Israel. That means the Palestinians have to present a truly civilised image and not be provoked into stupid acts of violence.

9. Reportedly, the Israeli security services have made it their policy to create divisions among the Palestinians. Reportedly, many Palestinian organisations have been infiltrated. It would benefit the Palestinians if they became more united, by learning to ignore the extremists who may well be secretly working for Israel.

10. The Palestinians need to improve their levels of education, so that they are not so easily tricked and exploited.

Iraq and al-Qaeda


The following letter was not published in The Economist Economist.com on 28 July 2007.

Sir - Your leader on Iraq (America and Iraq Plan, don't panic Economist.com) underlines how electoral politics is affecting sound judgment of where the interests of the United States and the West truly lie.

We must clear away the mist shrouding the decision to invade Iraq in 2003. It was not about al-Qaeda then and it is not about al-Qaeda now.

We were in Iraq in the 1920s to control the oil. We are in Iraq now to control the oil; and to make money for the military-industrial complex; and to help Israel.

Lockerbie, Shin Bet, MI5, the CIA, Iran and Wikipedia



What links Lockerbie, Shin Bet, the CIA, MI5 and Wikipedia?

On 26 July, 2007, Ludwig Braeckeleer, at ohmynews.com, ( Wikipedia and the Intelligence Services ) wrote:

"I had learned from a recently released U.S. National Archives file that Shin Bet, the Israeli Security Agency, had infiltrated the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine) and helped the Entebbe hijackers (Israeli commandos rescued the hostages in Uganda in 1976), so I wanted to learn more about the link between the PFLP and the PFLP-GC.

"I also wanted to learn more about allegations made by David Colvin, the first secretary of the British Embassy in Paris, concerning the rather bizarre collaboration between the PFLP and the Shin Bet."

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, General Command (PFLP-GC), based in Syria, has been accused of having some link to the Lockerbie bomb (1988).

It has been alleged that Marwan Khreesat of the PFLP-GC made the bomb which brought down PanAm 103 over Lockerbie.

On 26 October 1988 Khreesat was arrested and one of his bombs seized. Then Khreesat was mysteriously released. [1009] Former CIA agent Oswald Le Winter stated, "…pressure had come from Bonn… from the U.S. Embassy in Bonn… to release Khreesat." [1010]

Reportedly, Khreesat worked for U.S. intelligence. [1011] (http://www.constitution.org/ocbpt/ocbpt_08.htm)

Ludwig Braeckeleer writes: (Wikipedia and the Intelligence Services)

"I consulted the article on the Entebbe Operation on Wikipedia, where I knew the story had been noted. To my surprise, I found that all references to the alleged collaboration between the PFLP and the Shin Bet had been suppressed. Moreover, it is no longer possible to edit the page.

Braekeleer wonders to what extent Wikipedia and the media in general are controlled by the CIA and its friends.

Braekeler reminds us of the CIA's influence over the media back in 1953 when the CIA and its friends overthrew Iran's Prime Minister Mossadegh. Braeckeler quotes from a copy of the CIA's secret history of the coup :

Agents from the CIA and SIS (the American and British intelligence services) 'directed a campaign of bombings by Iranians posing as members of the Communist Party, and planted articles and editorial cartoons in newspapers.'

'The CIA was apparently able to use contacts at the Associated Press to put on the newswire a statement from Tehran about royal decrees that the CIA itself had written...

'The Iran desk of the State Department was able to place a CIA study in Newsweek, using the normal channel of desk officer to journalist. The article was one of several planted press reports that, when reprinted in Tehran, fed the war of nerves against Iran's prime minister, Mohammed Mossadegh'

Braekeler wonders about the extent of control over Wikipedia by the security services.

Braekeler speculates about 'Slim Virgin' an administrator at Wikipedia.

Reportedly, Slim Virgin has been revealed as Linda Mack, who worked with Pierre Salinger (senator and investigative journalist) in his Lockerbie investigation.

Reportedly, Linda Mack seemed to try to point the investigation in the direction of Qaddafi and Libya.

Reportedly, Salinger came to believe that Linda Mack worked for MI5.

History


In his Guardian article, 26 July 2007, Labour peer Anthony Giddens writes "At the outer edge of possibility, terrorist groups could acquire nuclear capability. We must mobilise against such risks, and have to strike a new balance between liberty and security to do so."

Giddens does not mention Operation Gladio, Operation Northwoods or the Jubilee Plot. The Jubilee Plot, you will recall, was a British government false flag operation, using patsies, to discredit certain opponents. There are people in Britain who believe that the Lockerbie Bomb incident was the work of elements of the security services of the USA, who were trying to cover up a drug smuggling operation. If most of the terror events are the work of the security services, then we may need some fresh thinking on security matters. - Liberty in the balance

Sir Robert Maxwell (born Ján Ludvík Hoch) was at one time the Labour Party's biggest backer. Reportedly, Maxwell 'looted pension funds'. He is buried in a place of honour in Israel.

Who are Tony Blair's backers and friends?

The majority seem to be Jewish millionaires: Lord Levy, Blair's fundraiser-in-chief and leading friend of Israel; Lord Bernstein; Sir Emmanuel Kaye.... etc.

Bombed from the air by the British, the French, the Italians...


In 1911 the Italians bombed Libyan civilians from the air.

In 1912 the French began bombing Moroccan civilians from the air.

In 1913 the Spanish began bombing Moroccan villagers from the air. They later used poison gas.

In 1915 the British began the aerial bombardment of Pathan villages on India’s North-West Frontier.

In 1919 the British bombed Afghan civilians from the air.

In 1919 the British planes bombed Dacca.

In the 1920s the British were bombing Iraqi villagers from the air.

And so it goes on. Over 90 years of terrorist activity by western countries.

Saddam agreed to leave Iraq before the invasion


CNN (CNN.com - UAE official: Hussein was open to exile - Nov 2, 2005) reported:

"Days before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, Saddam Hussein agreed in principle to accept an offer of exile from the United Arab Emirates... a UAE government senior official told CNN.

"The reported offer came before an emergency Arab League meeting in Egypt in discussions between UAE officials and a Hussein aide...

"The Hussein aide, Abed Hmoud, is now in jail in Iraq.

"The UAE official's account was repeated by another source who attended the Arab League summit and, separately, by a senior UAE government official...

"News of the reported offer from the UAE emerged... during an interview broadcast by the Arab network Al-Arabiya with Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahayan, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, one of the United Arab Emirates.

"The offer was spearheaded by his father, then-UAE President Sheikh Zayed Ben Sultan Al Nahayan, who died November 3.

'"During those days, the circumstances we worked under needed a very swift decision, an immediate response,' the crown prince said in a documentary broadcast by the network.

'"We had secured the approval of the main players, everyone who was involved, and the man concerned -- Saddam Hussein -- in 24 hours,' he said. 'So we came to the summit to lay down all the facts at the conference table. There would have been results if the issues were brought up but, again, this is all part of the past right now.'

"...CNN reported in March 2003 that an exile plan for Hussein appeared to be gaining support among his Persian Gulf neighbors and that during the Arab League meeting the UAE president had submitted a proposal calling for Hussein to surrender power within 14 days and leave Iraq under the temporary control of the Arab League."

CNN's Caroline Faraj and Brian Todd contributed to this story.

Courtney Coventry and Cash for Honours


Below is part of "The Statement Emailed to Police by Courtney Coventry." http://www.courtneycoventry.com/statement.html

"My name is Courtney Coventry. I met with Lord Levy over possible donations to the party...

"Lord Levy grabbed my husbands arm and pulled us over to one side saying to Mr. Blair that he had to discuss something with us. Lord Levy then asked my husband to confirm an amount he would donate and how grateful 'Tony' would be. My husband said that we were not ready to give a commitment to a figure but we would consider it over the course of the next few days. Lord Levy then proceeded to push further and said that given the right amount he mentioned 500,000 pounds and 300,000 pounds he would make sure 'Tony' would have John put on the honors list. We were more than a little taken aback but before we could fully register what had been said Lord Levy called Mr. Blair over and said that we were going to make a substantial donation to the party and then added that he was sure we could arrange an honour for services to the party. Mr. Blair looking a little embarrassed nodded and smiled...

"We arrived at the House of Lords and met Lord Levy who took us on a guided tour...

"Lord Levy discussed again, how grateful the party would be for our support and said he had discussed honours and that my husband would be placed on the honours list as a result of a substantial donation or loan as he called it when he tried to press us for a higher amount than the hundred thousand we had said we were considering. Levy said why didn’t we loan the labour party 300,000 then at a later date we could convert this to a donation and that he was certain we could afford this. As I knew nothing about the way in which your honours system works I asked... Lord Levy how he would arrange to have John put on the honours list. He said the government makes the recommendations and 'He would make sure Tony dealt with it.'...

Enron Style





UK and Private Finance Initiatives (private companies providing public services): "A large section of this country's biggest single piece of infrastructure is being run by the administrator Ernst and Young. Rest assured, dear taxpayers, the accounting firm's meter will be running for months to come. As well as that bill, the public is now in line to meet Metronet's £2 billion cost over-run. And its £2.6 billion debt...
"Since 1997, excluding the Tube PPP, the Treasury has signed 700 other PFI contracts for public infrastructure and services worth around £65 billion. The long-term cost to taxpayers? A cool £166 billion... Mr Brown has become addicted to PFI, which has allowed him to rack up multi-billion pound liabilities, mostly hidden from the national accounts. This is Enron-style financial management in the taxpayers' name." - Does 'Enron' ring any bells, Mr Brown?

Mobsters



"Erdogan... recently asked Washington to explain how US arms get into the hands of the insurgents. It is unclear, he said pointedly, whether the arms fall into the PKK's hands via Iraqis or if the US supplies the PKK directly." - TURKEY'S FAULT LINES


The BBC has suffered another credibility blow after admitting that it made up a Newsnight survey suggesting that most of Britain and Scotland's leading businesses were not in favour of independence. - BBC apologises in row over 'mistake' in SNP survey

"The Sunday Times has... discovered that there was a... key piece of evidence – a diary kept by Evans that allegedly details a series of meetings at the House of Lords in 2004 with Lord Levy, Blair’s chief fundraiser, to discuss a peerage. One well-placed Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) source said the diary was 'dynamite' and provided 'spectacular' evidence of an alleged 'agreement' for Evans to be ennobled in return for a £1m loan." - No 10 honours plot: four new names

Barack Obama’s foreign policy agenda is virtually identical to that of the Bush administration, including his approach to the “war on terrorism”. Obama has promised a robust US military-intelligence presence in Iraq and the Middle East to “root out Al-Qaeda”.... Mitt Romney promises to “combat radical Islam” with a war agenda identical to Obama’s (which is identical to Bush-Cheney’s). Romney’s provocative speech at the Herzliya Conference speaks for itself. -Washington's Consensus Al Qaeda Deception by Larry Chin

Beggars Belief




"One year into the Zeist trial, the prosecutors were told for the first time that the evidence had been fabricated by a former Libyan agent who had become a CIA asset in 1988. Internal CIA cables show that the agency was well aware since 1988 that the man was a fabricator. The Zeist trial constitutes the only case in history where internal CIA documents were used in a foreign court. As a rule, the Scottish Prosecution Authorities have a duty to investigate the credibility of their witnesses before they issue an arrest warrant. In the Megrahi's case, they did not. As they blindly trusted their U.S. partners, they failed to perform one of their most basic obligations.Instead of admitting the fact, they tried to cover it up, thus violating Scottish Criminal Law, which requires the prosecution to provide the defense with any significant information susceptible to help their cause." - Lockerbie: Evidence Fabricated by CIA

"The SNP MP ... suggested the police and Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) may have succumbed to political pressure. 'It simply beggars belief that the police and the CPS both believe no charges should be brought,' he said. 'If this is the case, the next few weeks will be extremely interesting, with assistant commissioner Mr Yates having promised the public administration committee that all the evidence assembled will be made public if required.' - SNP: Lack of charges 'beggars belief'

"Most interesting now will be how the other Blairite boot-lickers and sycophants will respond. Back in February, both the Scum and Martin Kettle ran similar articles demanding that Yates either put up or shut up." - Sticking the boot in.

Alliances


"Damascus has also warmed to Turkey, Israel's ally in the region, and this is somewhat unsettling news for Tehran, which looks to Syria as a counterbalance to the Israel-Turkey nexus. France, under the new pro-American President Nicolas Sarkozy, has wasted little time before trying its hands at an active Syria policy. From the vantage point of Tehran, the net result of all the external influences on Syria may indeed be a considerable mellowing or an incremental 'soft decoupling' of its relations with Syria."Iran-Syria alliance on uncertain ground

"Israel on Friday denounced an alliance between Iran and Syria that it said cast doubts on Syrian peace intentions, following a visit by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Damascus. 'The fact that the Damascus regime chose Ahmadinejad as a partner in a strategic alliance raises serious doubt on recent statements from Syria on its intentions for peace,' foreign ministry spokesman Mark Regev told AFP." - Israel slams Iran-Syria alliance

Fred Thompson


"On July 7th the Los Angeles Times reported that back in 1991 Mr Thompson accepted a lobbying job that required him to help persuade the first Bush White House to allow family-planning clinics that receive federal funds to offer advice on abortions. Team Thompson denies the story. However, the lobbying group's minutes support it, potentially branding the candidate a liar as well as unsound on abortion. Not a great start for a man who is not yet formally in the race." - Presidential candidates Hitting the buffers Economist.com


After President Bush commuted Libby's sentence Thompson released a statement: "I am very happy for Scooter Libby," Thompson said. "I know that this is a great relief to him, his wife and children. This will allow a good American, who has done a lot for his country, to resume his life." Political Leaders Express Outrage, Support for 'Scooter' Libby's Commuted Sentence

On June 29, 2002, Thompson married Republican consultant Jeri Kehn.

Thompson has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), a form of cancer.
