UK sticks to World Cup boycott amid new nerve agent storm

1397/4/15 | 17:41
Britain´s diplomatic boycott of the World Cup in Russia over a nerve agent attack in southwest England is back in the spotlight after a new case of exposure to the same poison in the same area. Even as the team advances in the competition and ahead of the quarter-final showdown against Sweden on Saturday, the VIP stands have lacked the usual smattering of royals and ministers. Prime Minister Theresa May earlier this year announced the boycott after blaming Russia for the attempted assassination of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his ...

1397/2/19 | 17:41
  President Donald Trump has announced his decision to withdraw the United States from Iran’s nuclear deal with the world powers and re-impose sanctions against the Islamic Republic. "I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal," Trump said Tuesday in a televised address from the White House. “This was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made.” "In a few moments, I will sign a presidential memorandum to begin reinstating US nuclear sanctions on the Iranian regime. ...

Is Britain about to join US military action over reports of Syria chemical attack?

1397/1/21 | 17:41
  The UK is coming under increased pressure to join the US in its expected military action against Assad. Britain has a history of backing American foreign intervention without UN approval, a trend that could be set to continue. Theresa May confirmed that she will speak with US President Donald Trump about the alleged chemical attack in Syria. She added that the UK is working urgently with its allies to assess what happened, and said that those behind the attack will be held to account. The UK PM will chair a meeting of Britain’s ...

Other countries have pulled back from the war in Yemen; why hasn’t Britain?

1397/1/15 | 17:41
  As the church bells rang in the New Year of 2018, Norway announced that it would be cutting arms sales to any country fighting in Yemen. A couple of weeks later, Germany said the same thing. The Netherlands and Sweden have also pulled out. Very early on in hostilities, Pakistan decided, based on a parliamentary vote, not to support its closest historical ally, Saudi Arabia, in continuing the war. Qatar has also withdrawn, albeit as part of the maelstrom of diplomacy that currently characterises Gulf geopolitics. With all of this disinterest ...

Poisoning of Sergei Skripal a false flag operation orchestrated by MI5: Analyst

1397/1/8 | 17:41
  The poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal in Britain is a false flag operation orchestrated by MI5 with the complicity of the British press in order to demonize Russia, according to E. Michael Jones, an American political analyst in Indiana. Jones, a writer, former professor, media commentator and the current editor of the Culture Wars magazine, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Monday, after US President Donald Trump expelled dozens of Russian diplomats in the United States.

1397/1/6 | 17:41

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Monday on his Facebook page: “In response to a cynical chemical attack in Salisbury, Ukraine, in the spirit of solidarity with our British ...

Morsi is not an ordinary prisoner, British MP warns Egypt

1396/12/29 | 17:41
  A British Member of Parliament has pointed out that former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, who was ousted in a military coup in 2013, is “not an ordinary prisoner.” Crispin Blunt MP warned the authorities in Egypt that if Morsi dies in prison, the consequences will be greater than if the victim was anyone else, Anadolu Agency has reported. Blunt, who heads Westminster’s Foreign Affairs Committee, said that a request by a group of British parliamentarians to be allowed to visit Morsi in prison has not received any response from ...

Putin Furious After Britain Says He Ordered Attack

1396/12/27 | 17:41
  UK officials have been accusing Russia all week of being behind a poisoning in Salisbury, presenting it as a “chemical weapons attack.” There is a decided lack of evidence that Russia actually was involved in the incident, and Russia denies having anything to do with it.   Still, tensions keep rising, and Britain keeps doubling down. On Friday, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said not only was it Russia, but it was “overwhelmingly likely” that Russian President Vladimir Putin “personally” ordered the attack. Russian ...

Britain, France, Germany propose new sanctions on Iran: Report

1396/12/26 | 17:41
  Britain, France and Germany have proposed new European Union sanctions on Iran over its missile program and its regional role, a confidential document says.

"We will therefore be circulating in the coming days a list of persons and entities that we believe should be targeted in view of their publicly demonstrated roles," ...

How British weapons ended up killing Yemeni people

1396/12/17 | 17:41
  Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is currently in London on a three-day visit that experts believe is aimed at boosting military ties between the two sides. His arrival was marked by a wave of protests against Riyadh’s human rights violations and its deadly war on Yemen, for which the UK has been a sponsor. In April 2013, when the United Nations voted to adopt the so-called Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), then UK Prime Minister David Cameron rushed to welcome the move, saying the multilateral agreement will help "save lives and ease ...

Why Iran and Britain can never be friends

1396/12/10 | 17:41
  Last week’s visit to the UK by Iranian deputy foreign minister Abbas Araghchi appears to signal warming relations between Iran and the United Kingdom. Araghchi’s meeting with UK officials, in addition to his speech at the prestigious Chatham House institute, speaks to a renewed push by the Islamic Republic to place its relations with the UK on a stable foundation. Appearances however can be deceptive, especially in relation to Anglo-Iranian ties, which are notoriously difficult and complex. The two countries have a history of misunderstanding ...

He added that it was now clear that Saudi Arabia would “not win a war from the air” and warned that the “human misery and heartache” in Yemen would continue ...

Politics of force and coercion has not worked in Afghanistan and will not work in the future

1396/11/8 | 17:41
US Deputy Secretary of State – John Sullivan – ignored realities and in our view miscalculated when he talked about putting pressure on the Islamic Emirate during the UN Security Council meeting. Such policies are the repetition of failed tactics of war mongering US Generals employed over the past sixteen years which have yet to bear any fruit, rather it has increased problems for America and pushed her further towards the edge of collapse. America must realize that the main issue of Afghanistan is foreign occupation. The British and ...

Jerusalem solidarity protests continue in UK cities

1396/10/4 | 17:41

Thousands of ISIS Fighters Returning To UK Given Luxury Housing & Rehab

1396/8/18 | 17:41
    While the average young person in Britain struggles to gain a foothold in the crowded housing market, returning ISIS fighters are set to be given free tax-payer funded homes as well as cars, counseling, and public sector jobs to “bribe” them not to carry out terror attacks on British soil.   The top-secret new government strategy, codenamed Operation Constrain, will even allow terrorists to jump to the top of council house waiting lists, allowing them to choose the best available homes to live in rent free, elbowing ...

US misled Britain over Iraq war, claims Brown

1396/8/16 | 17:41
  Gordon Brown has claimed the UK was “misled” over the Iraq war because the US defence department failed to pass on information casting doubt on Saddam Hussein’s destructive capability.   The former prime minister, who was chancellor when the decision to go to war in 2003 was made, said it was “astonishing” that top-secret US intelligence was not shared with Britain. He claimed that only after leaving office did he become aware of “crucial” papers held by the US Department of Defense and believes the course of history ...

Yemen rejects British initiative to revive talks

1396/8/14 | 17:41
      The government led by President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi has rejected a British initiative to revive talks about the political process in Yemen, a source close to Hadi told Saudi newspaper Okaz.   According to Quds Press on Friday, the source said that Britain informed Hadi of some ideas for the initiative, which has a political and humanitarian basis and ignores the military aspect. In many ways, it is said, the British proposal is similar to the initiative suggested by former US Secretary of State John Kerry. However, ...

Why should Britain apologise for the Balfour Declaration?

1396/8/12 | 17:41
  Until now, the British government does not seem inclined to review its colonial behavior in Palestine, which led to the establishment of the Zionist state “Israel” there, and caused a catastrophe for the Palestinian people.   They were dislodged from most of their land, and their social fabric was ripped apart, while most Palestinians became refugees. The statement by UK Prime Minister Theresa May, in which she showed pride in the Balfour Declaration and the foundation of Israel, is only proof of that.   British policy ...

What next for Britain in Yemen?

1396/7/11 | 17:41
  When the Houthi uprising began in 2004, Saudi ears inevitably twitched. The government in Riyadh had spent the previous year building an enormous wall along the southern border to stop Al-Qaeda.   The possibility of resurgent Zaidi rule in Yemen, absent since 1962, was a distinct possibility. This would not be a competing autocracy, it would be something far worse in Saudi eyes; a republican democracy, with women in elected office and an example of how religious states can be run democratically, without the need for kings at the ...

Britain to stop military cooperation with Burma army

1396/6/31 | 17:41

1396/4/13 | 17:41
British Prime Minister Theresa May is yet to decide whether to publish details of a report about foreign funding of extremism in the UK with a focus on Saudi Arabia. The outcome of the Home Office investigation is not yet released, which “leaves question marks over whether their decision is influenced by our diplomatic ties,” said the Green party co-leader, Caroline Lucas, as cited in a Guardian report, published Monday.

Islam vs West: Is it the time of clash of civilizations?

1396/4/2 | 17:41
   Baroness Warsi’s repeated warnings to the Tory party, of which she remains a member, to revise its dealings with Britain’s Muslim community went unheeded for years.   Time after time did she stress the nexus between rampant Islamophobia and the rise of the far-right.

Manchester attack: Is UK targeting Muslims the pretext of attack?

1396/3/13 | 17:41
    The United Kingdom has been a source of suspense of late with regards to the spate of terror it has experienced.   Baroness Warsi claimed that lackadaisical attitudes have guided Britain’s policymaking thus far, giving easy way to terrorist attacks, and additionally that this is not only a war against ideology.   While Britain’s ideological war is valid, the angle is passive; the cabinet member is correct in that the issue requires more depth and evidence-based responses to elucidate the elements that lure one ...
