Anniversary of Manchester Attack And Murder of Lee Rigby Marked by Warning About Radicalisation


Get short URL

Seven years ago an off-duty British Army corporal, Lee Rigby, was attacked and almost decapitated by two knife-wielding jihadists in a London street. On the same day in 2017, suicide bomber Salman Abedi killed 22 people at Manchester Arena.

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford was one of dozens of celebrities who tweeted messages on Friday, 22 May, in support of the victims of the attack in the foyer of an Ariana Grande concert three years ago.

The mother of one of the 22 victims, Martyn Hett, has also given a stark warning that jihadist terrorism remains a threat.

​Figen Murray, who has visited dozens of schools, colleges and universities in the last three years, said teachers “need to be very observant” to the signs of radicalisation.

She told PA News: “If somebody has been recruited or radicalised, there are tell-tale signs in their language and behaviour. A lot of teachers will hopefully be well versed in that.”

Salman Abedi and his brother Hashem were both radicalised in the run-up to the 2017 attack.

In March this year, Hashem – who was extradited from Libya – was found guilty of the 22 murders and was about to be sentenced when the coronavirus outbreak hit Britain. He faces a mandatory life sentence.

During his trial at the Old Bailey it was never suggested the Abedi brothers had deliberately chosen to conduct their attack on the same date – 22 May – as Lee Rigby’s killers Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale.

Because of the coronavirus outbreak and the lockdown, families of the Manchester attack are forbidden from grieving together but the Dean of Manchester, Rogers Govender, is holding online services on Friday, livestreamed on Manchester Cathedral’s Facebook page.

Stickers of a bee – which became the defiant symbol of Manchester after the attack – have also been posted at two metre intervals on the floor around a memorial to the victims at Manchester Victoria Station.

Trump Gets It Wrong, Again: No Lancet Report Warning of Wuhan Coronavirus Outbreak in December 2019 – Veterans Today

Lancet knocks Trump for ‘factually incorrect’ statement in letter warning of WHO funding cuts

by Justine Coleman/The Hill

Read Lancet Statement

The Lancet medical journal knocked President Trump on Tuesday for a “factually incorrect” statement in his letter warning of World Health Organization (WHO) funding cuts.

The medical journal released a statement saying Trump’s claim that the journal published reports in December 2019 or earlier about a coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China, were wrong.

“This statement is factually incorrect,” the journal said in a statement posted on Twitter. “The Lancet published no report in December, 2019, referring to a virus or outbreak in Wuhan or anywhere else in China.”

Trump wrote in the letter released Monday night that the WHO “consistently ignored credible reports of the virus spreading in Wuhan in early December 2019 or even earlier, including reports from the Lancet medical journal.”

The president’s Monday night letter to the WHO director-general threatened to permanently stop U.S. funds to WHO and withdraw the country from the WHO if it “does not commit to major substantive improvements within the next 30 days.”

The Lancet said it first published reports on coronavirus on Jan. 24, including one involving the first 41 patients diagnosed with COVID-19 in Wuhan. The researchers for that report were all from Chinese institutions.

ICC people should stay out of planes after Pompeo’s gangster style warning – Veterans Today

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor interviewed by Press TV

Mike Pompeo is warning that there will be consequences if the International Criminal Court (ICC) investigates Israel. It sounds like a gangster style warning. Warning about ‘consequences’ actually is often code for ‘we will kill you and your family’ among organized crime figures, and the people in politics who are basically organized crime types.

A famous example is when Dick Cheney threatened that there would be the “most extreme consequences for yourself, and the state of Minnesota” to Paul Wellstone.  He said if Paul Wellstone continued to pursue the path he was on, opposing the invasion of Iraq – this was in 2003 – and also, threatening to try to investigate 9/11—well that part wasn’t public—there would be extreme consequences and less than a week later, Wellstone, his wife, his daughter, and his entire campaign staff died in an extremely suspicious plane crash in perfectly good weather when the media apparently was ordered to report that there was bad weather.

So that’s an example of the kinds of threats that high level American politicians in Republican neocon dominated administrations like to toss around. And I suppose they mean it.

So the people at the head of the ICC probably should stay out of private planes for the next couple of months.

So why is Pompeo so insistent that the ICC shouldn’t investigate Israel? Well, the answer to that, of course, is that Mike Pompeo is owned lock, stock, and barrel by the International Crime Syndicate, the ICS, otherwise known as the Kosher Nostra, which is an ethnically Jewish Zionist ideologically organized crime syndicate, that is located in many places in the United States, both east and west coast.

But, it now has control of a state or a fake state, the bogus and completely illegitimate so-called state of Israel, which is nothing but a front for this international crime cartel. Now that crime cartel put Trump in office. It owns the Trump administration. It’s basically represented by the neoconservative faction here in the United States.

And so these extremist Likudnik Zionist organized crime figures are not happy that people who oppose crime would be looking into their war crimes because this crime syndicate has been committing genocide in occupied Palestine since 1948, if not before.

It was committing terrorism before that and then it accelerated to genocide in 1948, and they have been routinely massacring civilians, including children.

Chris Hedges wrote an excellent article called Gaza Diary explaining how he actually watched Israeli snipers luring children to within range of their gunsights and then murdering them for sport. He said he’d seen horrors and atrocities in war zones all over the world, but he’d never seen anything like that.

And I could go on about the Israeli war crimes— dropping white phosphorus on civilians, blowing up and bombing hospitals, ambulances, United Nations installations and all kinds of other civilian targets on a routine basis, also being the only state in the world that legally allowed and encouraged torture, until Israel took over the United States and September 11, 2001, and instituted that same regime here.

So that the crimes and the war crimes of Israel are just off the charts. But the criminal syndicate that owns Israel as well as much of the world, the Western world’s financial infrastructure—we’re talking about the world’s biggest banksters here, among other things—these people have so much power that they’ve essentially taken over the United States.

Their most rabid figures represent the Republican neocons. They own this Trump administration.

So they’re using a gangster-like Pompeo to threaten the people who run the ICC. It’s absolutely disgusting. The world needs to rise up against this. We need a global Intifada against this crime syndicate, and we need to overthrow these criminals.

We need a virtual Quds Day. The whole world should be observing Quds Day. Maybe it would even be easier to do that in kind of solidarity and working together online if people are not out in the streets, but of course it is very convenient to the Zionists, as well as to all sorts of other people in power, that in so many parts of the world, people are no longer allowed to protest. So it’ll be interesting to see what happens on Quds Day. This would be a great time for people to really take a stand at least online.

CIA Believes China Tried to Have WHO Delay Global Coronavirus Warning, Report Claims

The CIA is the second Western intelligence agency to accuse China of trying to cover up the gravity of the coronavirus outbreak. Last week, German media reported that the federal intelligence service believes Xi Jinping had personally attempted to keep the world unaware of human-to-human virus transmission. Both China and the WHO deny a cover-up.

A CIA report claims that China had tried to stop the World Health Organisation from issuing a global warning on the coronavirus, according to Newsweek.

Although the assessment hasn’t been published, its contents were confirmed to the outlet by intelligence officials. It allegedly holds that China threatened to stop working with the WHO’s coronavirus investigation if the agency declared the outbreak a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC).

The WHO refused to comment on specific discussions with member states, but maintained in a statement to Newsweek that it “bases its recommendations on science, public health best practices, evidence, data, and the advice of independent experts”.

It comes as the Trump administration is accusing China of covering up the severity of the outbreak at its early stage — allegedly to carve out some time for stocking up on medical supplies — and of releasing the deadly coronavirus from a lab in Wuhan, the epicentre of the pandemic. China flatly rejects the charges and maintains that it has been transparent about the virus at all times.

German report

The CIA’s accusations mirror a recent report in the magazine Der Spiegel, which cited Germany’s foreign intelligence service as stating that Chinese President Xi Jinping had personally pressured WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to suppress news about the outbreak.

It was claimed that in a 21 January conversation, President Jinping had told Ghebreyesus to withhold information on human-to-human transmission of the virus and delay any declaration of a pandemic. CIA officials who spoke to Newsweek did not say whether they suspected that Xi had tried to pressure the WHO.

WHO and China push back

The organisation has already debunked Der Spiegel’s report and pointed to several inconsistencies in it. For instance, China publicly confirmed that the virus passes person-to-person on 20 January, before the alleged conversation, and the WHO confirmed that just two days later, after its experts visited Wuhan.

WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier cast more doubt on that story, telling Newsweek that Ghebreyesus did not speak with Xi on 20, 21, or 22 January. He said that they only met on 28 January, but did not bring up the announcement of a PHEIC. The Chinese Foreign Ministry likewise said on Monday that there was no conversation between the two on 21 January.

A PHEIC warning (a different procedure from the declaration of a pandemic) is issued when an outbreak poses a risk to more than one country and requires a coordinated international response. It triggers various public health measures, including calls for increased funding and resources to contain its international spread, as well as recommendations on trade and travel.

The WHO assembled the Emergency Committee on 22 and 23 January to discuss such a declaration, but its experts — who already had evidence of human-to-human transmission — concluded that the outbreak did not constitute a PHEIC at the time. It was on 30 January that a global warning was finally issued.

Fauci Emails NY Times Reporter With Warning of ‘Needless Suffering and Death’ in Opening Country ‘Prematurely’

Dr. Anthony Fauci emailed New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg Monday night with a preview of his message for a Senate hearing on Tuesday in which he warns of “needless suffering and death” if the country opens “prematurely” from the COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus lockdowns. Fauci, who is on ‘modified quarantine’ for contact with someone who tested positive for the virus is scheduled to testify by remote for the hearing held by the Senate Health Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. The hearing will feature testimony by Fauci and three other members of the White House coronavirus task force.

File screen image.

Stolberg posted Fauci’s message to Twitter:

“The major message that I wish to convey to the Senate HLP committee tomorrow is the danger of trying to open the country prematurely. If we skip over the checkpoints in the guidelines to: ‘Open America Again,’ then we risk the danger of multiple outbreaks throughout the country. This will not only result in needless suffering and death, but would actually set us back on our quest to return to normal.”

Several states have been setting their own pace for reopening in defiance of recommendations by Fauci and coronavirus task force guidelines he helped develop. Most notably Georgia which opened up two weeks ago. Protesters around the country have demonstrated in support of ending or loosening the lockdowns to save society and the economy from catastrophic damage as the virus has shown to not be as lethal as models predicted.

The Senate hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. EDT in room 106 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building. The hearing will be chaired remotely by Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) who is in self-quarantine.

List of panelists, all of whom will be appearing by remote: Anthony Fauci, MD, Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health (modified quarantine); Robert Redfield, MD, Director, United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (self quarantine); Stephen Hahn, MD, Commissioner Of Food And Drugs, United States Food and Drug Administration (self quarantine) and ADM Brett Giroir, MD, Assistant Secretary For Health, United States Department of Health and Human Services.

Paula Reid of CBS News reported Fauci tested negative for the virus Monday and spent time at the White House meeting with coronavirus task force response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx, “NEW: Dr. Fauci & Dr. Birx met today at White House. During their meeting both docs wore masks & sat more than 6ft apart. Fauci was was tested today as he arrived at WH – #COVID-19 quick test was negative. He spent most of the day in his office preparing for tomorrow’s hearing.”
