0:00:00.030,0:00:07.740
Barry Webb retired NSA Arabist and

0:00:03.179,0:00:10.830
Arabic translator as of 25 years we are

0:00:07.740,0:00:12.630
here with our weekly what is going on in

0:00:10.830,0:00:15.269
the arab news and you had a particularly

0:00:12.630,0:00:17.330
interesting thing you wanted to discuss

0:00:15.269,0:00:22.080
why don’t you just go right ahead

0:00:17.330,0:00:24.390
yeah there’s two news opening septic

0:00:22.080,0:00:27.779
came out this week that just drove me up

0:00:24.390,0:00:33.300
the wall and it shows uh you know how

0:00:27.779,0:00:34.950
how well the jihad is doing the first

0:00:33.300,0:00:40.410
you know they both had to do with the US

0:00:34.950,0:00:43.920
Congress of course the first one is that

0:00:40.410,0:00:47.550
you know the geniuses in Congress are

0:00:43.920,0:00:49.920
discussing the possibility of bringing

0:00:47.550,0:00:54.390
that libyan general heft are back to the

0:00:49.920,0:00:57.090
states to try him for war crimes now

0:00:54.390,0:01:02.280
there are the alleged justification for

0:00:57.090,0:01:05.119
this is there there’s some kind of

0:01:02.280,0:01:09.270
evidence that he might be a US citizen

0:01:05.119,0:01:11.250
in like maybe yeah because he was born

0:01:09.270,0:01:12.750
here or my baby his parents were here

0:01:11.250,0:01:14.820
studying or something it was born here

0:01:12.750,0:01:16.439
so they want to use that to try to bring

0:01:14.820,0:01:16.890
him back to try for a plan for war

0:01:16.439,0:01:20.580
crimes

0:01:16.890,0:01:25.500
well why war crimes well he’s in the

0:01:20.580,0:01:29.930
process of trying to take this city of

0:01:25.500,0:01:35.820
Tripoli away from the jihadi militias

0:01:29.930,0:01:38.100
Isis al-qaeda Ansar Surya etc you know

0:01:35.820,0:01:40.049
and you know when you complain you’re

0:01:38.100,0:01:40.680
trying to take a city things get pretty

0:01:40.049,0:01:42.720
messy

0:01:40.680,0:01:45.780
I mean look how my needs to building to

0:01:42.720,0:01:49.229
be killed in World War two yeah within a

0:01:45.780,0:01:53.159
few and so obviously some civilians are

0:01:49.229,0:01:56.490
being killed there but in war in the

0:01:53.159,0:02:00.329
Middle East is even dirtier than it ever

0:01:56.490,0:02:03.450
was in World War two because if you

0:02:00.329,0:02:05.549
noticed every time if the Israelis try

0:02:03.450,0:02:11.580
to defend themselves against Hamas

0:02:05.549,0:02:13.500
attacks yeah what does the media do well

0:02:11.580,0:02:16.550
pretty much every time the Israel

0:02:13.500,0:02:20.970
defend themselves the media says

0:02:16.550,0:02:24.180
Israelis murder 15 Palestinians and then

0:02:20.970,0:02:26.670
in two point font say in response to

0:02:24.180,0:02:31.800
massive assault burning hundreds of

0:02:26.670,0:02:35.370
acres of fields and teaching what Tomas

0:02:31.800,0:02:37.920
does is they instantly stash their

0:02:35.370,0:02:40.980
weapons in mosque and hospitals in the

0:02:37.920,0:02:44.209
munitions etc and they’ve been known to

0:02:40.980,0:02:47.430
round up children and force them to

0:02:44.209,0:02:50.280
stand you know stand by missile

0:02:47.430,0:02:54.480
launching mechanisms year at gunpoint

0:02:50.280,0:02:58.290
yes so that when the inevitable Israeli

0:02:54.480,0:03:00.840
strike comes they can take videos of the

0:02:58.290,0:03:03.090
soldier being blown apart and they

0:03:00.840,0:03:05.810
upload that from the cell phones they

0:03:03.090,0:03:09.030
upload that to the Internet

0:03:05.810,0:03:13.920
Elsa Zahra then broadcasted blasted our

0:03:09.030,0:03:17.820
berlin world and its minions here in the

0:03:13.920,0:03:21.810
states like CNN and washington post’s

0:03:17.820,0:03:26.519
etc pick that up and you know publicize

0:03:21.810,0:03:28.290
it and then a mushy brained individuals

0:03:26.519,0:03:29.970
now sees may our honorable congressman

0:03:28.290,0:03:33.269
you read The Washington Post they want

0:03:29.970,0:03:35.459
CNN etc and OH crocodile tears oh you

0:03:33.269,0:03:38.070
know look at the atrocities that the

0:03:35.459,0:03:40.049
Israelis are committing you know since

0:03:38.070,0:03:43.470
so there’s always world pressure then

0:03:40.049,0:03:46.230
builds up two forces readies to stop

0:03:43.470,0:03:48.750
defending themselves we see the same

0:03:46.230,0:03:50.430
thing happening in Yemen this is why you

0:03:48.750,0:03:52.680
know the Saudis are now getting the same

0:03:50.430,0:03:54.930
treatment that the Israelis did for the

0:03:52.680,0:03:58.200
same reasons because the you ho these

0:03:54.930,0:04:00.780
are stashing other weapons and their

0:03:58.200,0:04:04.980
heavy equipment etc in residential areas

0:04:00.780,0:04:08.030
and near hospitals and whatnot so you

0:04:04.980,0:04:12.950
can bet your bottom dollar that these

0:04:08.030,0:04:16.470
Islamist terrorist militias in Tripoli

0:04:12.950,0:04:19.320
we’re doing the same thing to maximize

0:04:16.470,0:04:23.099
the cilium civilian casualties in order

0:04:19.320,0:04:26.540
to gain you know world support and then

0:04:23.099,0:04:30.740
pressure against half time to withdraw

0:04:26.540,0:04:33.150
but it gets even worse than that because

0:04:30.740,0:04:38.150
warmer they performed a dictator Muammar

0:04:33.150,0:04:41.420
Qaddafi had a me nuclear program but

0:04:38.150,0:04:44.340
when he saw what we did to his buddy

0:04:41.420,0:04:47.390
cynical sane and our rap he immediately

0:04:44.340,0:04:50.430
halted its nuclear program dismount it

0:04:47.390,0:04:54.720
but he didn’t get rid of all of his

0:04:50.430,0:04:57.180
nuclear materials and most intelligence

0:04:54.720,0:04:59.370
sources believe that there’s still a lot

0:04:57.180,0:05:03.330
of nuclear materials you know weapons

0:04:59.370,0:05:08.100
great yellow cake and etc stashed around

0:05:03.330,0:05:10.080
at various places in Libya so after

0:05:08.100,0:05:13.200
general hunter is not only trying to

0:05:10.080,0:05:17.550
liberate the city of Libya from the

0:05:13.200,0:05:18.810
radical Islamist terrorist militias he’s

0:05:17.550,0:05:21.240
trying to prevent them from getting a

0:05:18.810,0:05:26.010
hold of these young Qaddafi’s leftover

0:05:21.240,0:05:26.520
nuclear materials so our honourable aroo

0:05:26.010,0:05:30.120
diked

0:05:26.520,0:05:32.280
Congress persons that are talking about

0:05:30.120,0:05:34.010
bringing hefter back to the states to

0:05:32.280,0:05:36.570
try for war crimes and to shut down

0:05:34.010,0:05:39.510
bases upon his war you know against

0:05:36.570,0:05:41.670
tripoli are basically voting in favor of

0:05:39.510,0:05:46.710
letting al qaeda etc get a hold of

0:05:41.670,0:05:49.620
nuclear materials really bright ok now

0:05:46.710,0:05:55.980
the other thing has this happened this

0:05:49.620,0:05:59.790
morning I guess they invited Jamel

0:05:55.980,0:06:02.850
Cochise you know former fiancee I guess

0:05:59.790,0:06:04.800
you could say to testify before the

0:06:02.850,0:06:11.940
Foreign Relations Committee in Congress

0:06:04.800,0:06:14.660
you know I mean authoritarian regimes

0:06:11.940,0:06:17.940
snuff out journalists all the time

0:06:14.660,0:06:23.670
but this one the media just you know

0:06:17.940,0:06:26.100
laid it on I made it on and I reported

0:06:23.670,0:06:27.990
before our writings to to Brad’s website

0:06:26.100,0:06:31.710
and I think even even my interviews here

0:06:27.990,0:06:36.750
that the Democrats are trying to use the

0:06:31.710,0:06:38.470
whole SOT affair as a tool to bludgeon

0:06:36.750,0:06:41.410
Trump with and or even

0:06:38.470,0:06:44.170
bring him down because he has retained

0:06:41.410,0:06:48.460
his warm relations with the Saudis

0:06:44.170,0:06:52.240
through all of this and and he hasn’t

0:06:48.460,0:06:54.490
shown overwhelming affinity for this

0:06:52.240,0:06:56.830
tariffs in sponsoring state of Qatar

0:06:54.490,0:07:01.030
which is apparently what the Democrats

0:06:56.830,0:07:02.740
want to see and so this whole bring

0:07:01.030,0:07:04.930
you’re bringing this lady from

0:07:02.740,0:07:07.960
Washington to have her testified before

0:07:04.930,0:07:10.570
the four Democrat dominated form now

0:07:07.960,0:07:13.330
Affairs Committee is just a political

0:07:10.570,0:07:16.660
stunt that just again it shows that they

0:07:13.330,0:07:19.480
have at least in my mind might view that

0:07:16.660,0:07:22.360
Congress at least a good chunk of it is

0:07:19.480,0:07:25.030
basically a Muslim Brotherhood occupied

0:07:22.360,0:07:26.350
territory now I just listened to an

0:07:25.030,0:07:28.240
interview today

0:07:26.350,0:07:32.140
I don’t even pre-recorded but might even

0:07:28.240,0:07:36.160
might have been live it was with Gordon

0:07:32.140,0:07:38.410
Friedman who’s the head of a think tank

0:07:36.160,0:07:42.550
called Stratford its Dennis Prager

0:07:38.410,0:07:45.840
that’s it and he was saying that

0:07:42.550,0:07:49.140
khashoggi this is it’s indisputable

0:07:45.840,0:07:50.800
khashoggi was basically an Islamic state

0:07:49.140,0:07:55.330
Brotherhood asset

0:07:50.800,0:08:00.310
he was a Wahhabi jihadist he was he was

0:07:55.330,0:08:04.060
a profound enemy of the Saudi regime and

0:08:00.310,0:08:06.430
that this whole assassination thing was

0:08:04.060,0:08:07.720
completely business as usual it was

0:08:06.430,0:08:09.520
necessary actually you know in an

0:08:07.720,0:08:12.190
interview I did with Brad Johnson he

0:08:09.520,0:08:15.370
said similar things is that your is that

0:08:12.190,0:08:19.150
your estimate of the situation my

0:08:15.370,0:08:22.000
estimate is even worse that’s wrong she

0:08:19.150,0:08:25.060
was high school best buddies with Osama

0:08:22.000,0:08:27.190
bin Laden and they both joined the

0:08:25.060,0:08:28.870
Muslim Brotherhood together were

0:08:27.190,0:08:30.280
influenced by the same Muslim

0:08:28.870,0:08:32.680
Brotherhood teachers had mentioned

0:08:30.280,0:08:34.810
before how the Saudis had brought in all

0:08:32.680,0:08:37.659
of these Muslim Brotherhood teachers to

0:08:34.810,0:08:39.960
to stab their high schools witches you

0:08:37.659,0:08:43.390
know went because of the oil money and

0:08:39.960,0:08:45.670
so the and they throughout life you know

0:08:43.390,0:08:48.040
they’ve retained the same goals the only

0:08:45.670,0:08:51.250
difference is that catch Oggy was 10

0:08:48.040,0:08:52.150
times more dangerous because Osama bin

0:08:51.250,0:08:55.270
Laden was on

0:08:52.150,0:08:57.460
he told us what he wanted to do and he

0:08:55.270,0:09:00.040
showed it with you know the physical

0:08:57.460,0:09:03.880
actions of having his minions book blow

0:09:00.040,0:09:08.860
things up but Sergey was much more

0:09:03.880,0:09:12.010
subtle and yeah in my view I think he

0:09:08.860,0:09:13.810
was actually a young intelligence world

0:09:12.010,0:09:16.540
there’s this thing called the double

0:09:13.810,0:09:18.730
agent yet like in the Cold War if you’re

0:09:16.540,0:09:21.040
working for both the Americans and the

0:09:18.730,0:09:23.790
Soviets trying to play both sides and

0:09:21.040,0:09:26.680
getting both sides to pass information

0:09:23.790,0:09:28.420
it’s kind of a real you’re real scumbag

0:09:26.680,0:09:30.520
you know if you’re a double agent I

0:09:28.420,0:09:33.580
learned about that and go when I watch

0:09:30.520,0:09:39.760
gone with the wind Rhett Butler was one

0:09:33.580,0:09:41.529
wasn’t it yeah yeah normally was kind of

0:09:39.760,0:09:42.910
a good guy but he was and he was selling

0:09:41.529,0:09:44.350
he was selling weapons to both sides

0:09:42.910,0:09:47.860
that’s what I did when they arrested

0:09:44.350,0:09:51.089
yeah anyways continue anyway but you’re

0:09:47.860,0:09:55.060
ok my view is not just a double agent I

0:09:51.089,0:09:56.620
see him as a quadruple agent it’s

0:09:55.060,0:09:58.480
working obviously he was working for the

0:09:56.620,0:10:00.940
Muslim Brotherhood as you know he said

0:09:58.480,0:10:03.520
one of it was actually that in fact a

0:10:00.940,0:10:07.510
leader of the sour D branch of the

0:10:03.520,0:10:10.570
Muslim Brotherhood okay and then he was

0:10:07.510,0:10:13.660
obviously working for Qatar and in fact

0:10:10.570,0:10:16.830
even the Washington Post you know we

0:10:13.660,0:10:19.810
have a moment of weakness on their part

0:10:16.830,0:10:23.230
you published an article that saying

0:10:19.810,0:10:25.570
that these editorials that showed she

0:10:23.230,0:10:29.290
was writing for the post were being

0:10:25.570,0:10:30.580
dictated by Qatar okay so in figure he

0:10:29.290,0:10:33.520
is working for because how are you

0:10:30.580,0:10:35.709
intelligence and I’m also quite sure he

0:10:33.520,0:10:38.560
is working for Turkish intelligence too

0:10:35.709,0:10:41.110
we spent half of this time in his sample

0:10:38.560,0:10:46.120
only half his time here in the DC area

0:10:41.110,0:10:49.120
and that lady he was you know the

0:10:46.120,0:10:51.400
fiancee the so-called college students

0:10:49.120,0:10:53.560
she was a member of her man’s inner

0:10:51.400,0:10:58.630
circle and probably a high-level

0:10:53.560,0:11:00.520
intelligence agent herself now of course

0:10:58.630,0:11:02.260
the Turks and the Qataris the Muslim

0:11:00.520,0:11:05.660
Brotherhood you know they’re all on the

0:11:02.260,0:11:08.510
same side it’s a working for all three

0:11:05.660,0:11:12.020
I think it was also working for the deep

0:11:08.510,0:11:16.040
state here because a deep state you know

0:11:12.020,0:11:20.120
Obama’s leftovers have really the same

0:11:16.040,0:11:23.080
goal as the Muslim Brotherhood and or

0:11:20.120,0:11:26.120
the one in Turkey and that is to

0:11:23.080,0:11:26.990
resurrect the old Ottoman Empire as the

0:11:26.120,0:11:31.250
caliphate

0:11:26.990,0:11:34.790
in conjunction with Muslim Brotherhood

0:11:31.250,0:11:36.860
controlled Arab states and this is why

0:11:34.790,0:11:38.600
the Brotherhood has tried to gain

0:11:36.860,0:11:43.040
control of these Arab Spring movements

0:11:38.600,0:11:45.110
throughout the region so you know so

0:11:43.040,0:11:45.470
they saw the Saudis took him out you

0:11:45.110,0:11:48.230
know

0:11:45.470,0:11:51.470
but then they did it was basically their

0:11:48.230,0:11:53.540
own territory which you know everybody

0:11:51.470,0:11:55.610
all embassies and counselors are

0:11:53.540,0:11:58.160
considered to be the actual soil of the

0:11:55.610,0:12:02.840
country that is operating that embassy

0:11:58.160,0:12:06.880
our council it you know so they

0:12:02.840,0:12:06.880
eliminated him you know let’s move on

0:12:07.230,0:12:12.209
but now I can see why the Turks were so

0:12:09.690,0:12:15.570
anxious to raise a stink about it if he

0:12:12.209,0:12:18.360
was actually one of their asset yes yeah

0:12:15.570,0:12:21.630
and yeah yeah the one of the robbers

0:12:18.360,0:12:25.440
floating down is that this testimony he

0:12:21.630,0:12:28.050
was on the verge of trying to start an

0:12:25.440,0:12:29.910
uprising Saudi Arabia to bring down the

0:12:28.050,0:12:34.019
regime and replace it with a brotherhood

0:12:29.910,0:12:36.600
Regina thank you very much this was a

0:12:34.019,0:12:38.820
great update and we’ll check in again a

0:12:36.600,0:12:42.120
few days and see if there’s if there’s

0:12:38.820,0:12:44.399
any movement I mean as one Israeli

0:12:42.120,0:12:47.250
ambassador to the United Nations said as

0:12:44.399,0:12:48.810
he was leaving on his last day that when

0:12:47.250,0:12:54.209
how did he put it now this is

0:12:48.810,0:12:57.389
paraphrasing when when Jews kill Arabs

0:12:54.209,0:13:02.910
it is a catastrophe and when Christians

0:12:57.389,0:13:04.949
kill Arabs it is a tragedy and when

0:13:02.910,0:13:08.880
Muslims and Arabs kill Arabs is the

0:13:04.949,0:13:10.410
Weather Channel and it’s there’s a

0:13:08.880,0:13:13.560
certain amount of truth to the fact that

0:13:10.410,0:13:16.019
there’s a constant state of war where

0:13:13.560,0:13:18.329
the dominant ideology is the only way to

0:13:16.019,0:13:24.149
get to heaven is to die in a TLAs way

0:13:18.329,0:13:26.880
right yeah yeah so but it does seem like

0:13:24.149,0:13:28.740
things today are not quite business as

0:13:26.880,0:13:31.050
usual and that there’s higher tensions

0:13:28.740,0:13:33.600
bigger stakes and bigger things are in

0:13:31.050,0:13:35.310
the works especially is it Turkey seems

0:13:33.600,0:13:38.699
to want to reestablish to Caliphate

0:13:35.310,0:13:42.269
Iran’s trying for the Islamic the great

0:13:38.699,0:13:44.880
whatever this is she a crescent it does

0:13:42.269,0:13:47.430
seem and you know there’s a sense of

0:13:44.880,0:13:51.480
impending doom around Israel too so I

0:13:47.430,0:13:54.000
think it’s really appreciated that that

0:13:51.480,0:13:55.860
we keep an eye on on these on the

0:13:54.000,0:13:58.709
minutiae of these groups and their

0:13:55.860,0:14:01.220
actions and their resources so thanks

0:13:58.709,0:14:01.220
again for that
