Complicity in War Crimes: UK Facilitating Suspicious Arms Flow to Saudi Arabia


Is Nawaz Sharif a real estate Tycoon of UK?

1397/4/1 | 01:32
Aitzaz Ahsan, former Federal Interior Minister, noted jurist and a key leader of the Pakistan People's Party leader, publicly aired doubts Thursday if London's prestigious privately-owned medical facility, the Harley Street Clinic, was a genuine cancer treatment hospital, besides suspecting it was owned by the Sharif family. While former Pakistani Premier Nawaz Sharif's wife Kulsoom Nawaz is being treated for cancer and cardiac arrest at the Harley Street Clinic, former Pakistan Peoples' Party Federal Minister Dr. Asim Hussain's spouse has recently ...

UK PM, Bin Salman Discuss Confronting Iran

1397/3/28 | 01:32
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and British Prime Minister Theresa May have discussed possible ways of “confronting Iran and its growing role” in the Middle East. May’s office said Sunday that the two leaders agreed over the phone on the need to tackle what they call “Iranian destabilizing activity” in the region. “As part of this the Prime Minister noted the importance of cooperation between their two countries to protect Saudi Arabia from ballistic missile attacks,” the statement added. More than three years after waging ...

Complicity in War Crimes: UK Facilitating Suspicious Arms Flow to Saudi Arabia

1397/3/23 | 01:32
  An arms sales watchdog accuses Britain of refusing to act in time to prevent a huge and highly-suspicious Saudi-bound ammunition consignment.   The consignment involved 30 million rounds of ammunition – including 13,492,927 bullets for AK-47 assault rifles and 3,063,276 rounds of sniper ammunition. Back in 2014, two British arms dealers asked the British Department for International Trade (DIT) to approve their sales of the Bosnian-made rounds to Saudi Arabia. The DIT took 14 months to examine the request, despite normally processing ...

Will Pakistan's daughter Khadija Siddiqi ever find justice

1397/3/22 | 01:32
My decades-long interest in crime shows and movies has a very simple reason. I find it all utterly fascinating: machinations of human mind; the motive; the meticulousness, the audacity in planning and carrying out of a crime; process of investigation — sealing of a crime scene, photographs taken of the body, fingerprint collection, placing of all items around a victim in airtight bags, forensic experts to make their scientific assessments (angle of the attack, weapon that was used, approximate height of the attacker, which hand was used, severity ...

What could happen if Reham Khan is sued in UK courts?

1397/3/16 | 01:32
Imran Khan’s friend Zufli Bukhari has instructed a West London law firm called Sweetman Burke and Sinker to send legal notice to Khan’s former wife Reham Khan but it seems that there are a lot of legal complexities involved and it looks improbable that this case would be assessed for a success and land in front of a judge in the courts of England after the defamation letter was made public. Those close to the claimants have started to appear across media challenging the allegations which are part of the defamation claim and discredited Reham ...

UK royal wedding just another public deception: Academic

1397/2/30 | 01:32
UK royal weddings just like many other practices by the British elite are “monstrous lies” that are intended to deceive the public, says a scholar in London. Dr. Rodney Shakespeare, a London-based university professor and political analyst, made the remarks discussing the wedding between Prince Harry and US actress Meghan Markle. More than 2,000 members of the public attended the ceremony in the streets of Windsor in England on Saturday. The wedding has been estimated to cost British taxpayers a staggering $45 million (£32 million) by ...

Who tried to kill PTI lawyer Naeem Bukhari?

1397/2/16 | 01:32
  Police in London are treating the April 27 incident involving Naeem Bukhari as ‘attempted murder’, it is learnt through official sources. Investigators are looking for a man who might have followed Mr Bukhari, a prominent lawyer associated with the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), to the Marble Arch Underground Station. According to the sources, the suspect allegedly pushed Mr Bukhari onto the platform, causing serious injuries for which he is being treated at a hospital in London. The British Transport Police (BTP) in response ...

Military under Bajwa reaching out to India but New Delhi hostile: RUSI

1397/2/15 | 01:32
  A commentary published by UK think-tank Royal Unites Services Institute (RUSI) has said that Pakistan’s military chief General Qamar Bajwa realises that the way to peace and prosperity in Pakistan is through military cooperation with India but New Delhi is not reciprocating approaches made by Pakistan’s senior military officers. The RUSI’s expert on South Asia and Middle East Kamal Alam has written in a report published by the RUSI that it was a “historic first” that General Qamar Javed Bajwa invited Sanjay Vishwasrao, the ...

Russia tests Nuke that can wipe UK off the map 3 times over

1397/1/30 | 01:32
  Vladimir Putin has ordered a second high-profile test of the world’s most unstoppable nuclear missile – the Satan 2 – capable of WIPING OUT Britain three times over with one blast. The shockingly deadly missile is more than 3000 times more powerful than the bomb which leveled Hiroshima – and it is virtually undetectable. As Russia faces condemnation across the planet for the state-sponsored act of terror on the streets of Salisbury, the test is being seen as a clear and hostile message of war to the world. Putin and his cronies ...

Theresa May earns cold reception in U.K. Parliament over Syria attacks

1397/1/28 | 01:32
After ordering British forces into action in Syria, Prime Minister Theresa May faced criticism from lawmakers on Monday, with many of them seeming to resent being bypassed over the decision, more than the strikes themselves. Speaking in Parliament, Mrs. May argued that the “limited, targeted and effective” attack had sent a vital signal that the use of chemical weapons would not be tolerated by the international community. But the leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, a lifelong critic of Western military intervention, questioned ...

Syria comes under military attack on Trump's orders, 13 missiles shot down

1397/1/25 | 01:32
  Multiple places in Syria have come under attack by US, British and French military forces after President Donald Trump ordered a military strike against the country despite international warnings against further escalation of the situation. “A short time ago, I ordered the United States Armed Forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of” Syria, Trump said in a televised address from the White House on Friday evening. He also warned Russia and Iran, which have been assisting Syria ...

UK opens permanent naval base in Bahrain to strengthen monarch's rule

1397/1/17 | 01:32
  The UK has officially opened a permanent military base in the Persian Gulf country of Bahrain, making a military return to the region after a hiatus that lasted more than four decades. The Duke of York, Prince Andrew, and Bahrain's Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifah attended the opening ceremony of the UK Naval Support Facility in the tiny island's Salman Port on Thursday. The base is located off the coast of Saudi Arabia and has room for up to around 500 Royal Navy personnel, including sailors, soldiers and airmen. "The aim ...

Diplomatic crisis between Russia, West may lead to nuclear war: Analyst

1397/1/9 | 01:32
  The escalation of long-standing tensions between Russia and the West over Moscow’s alleged poisoning of a former Russian spy in the UK will increase the chances of a nuclear confrontation, an American writer and academic says. Sergei Skripal and his daughter are critically ill in a UK hospital after being poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent in the southern English city of Salisbury last month. The US has ordered the expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats in response to the poisoning. Up to 17 EU countries and Australia have also ...

Islam poised to overtake established Christianity in UK, reports Guardian By

1397/1/1 | 01:32
  New research has revealed that a majority of young people in a dozen countries of Europe do not follow a religion, The Guardian reports. Young Muslims, at 6 per cent of the overall population in UK, are on the brink of overtaking those who consider themselves part of the country’s established church, the report in the British paper has highlighted. According to the findings of a survey, conducted on 16- to 29-year-olds, it was discovered that the Czech Republic is the least religious country in Europe, with 91 per cent of people in ...

'Punish a Muslim' Game Spreads Across U.K. in Letters

1396/12/22 | 01:32
Ominous letters are being sent anonymously around the U.K. urging people to participate in a macabre game called “Punish a Muslim,” which awards points for doing things like burning down a mosque or throwing acid on a Muslim person. The letters were sent in plain white envelopes to at least six communities in England, including East London and other regions with a large Muslim population. “Are you a ‘sheep’ like the vast majority of the population? Sheep follow orders and are easily led, they are allowing the white majority nations ...

UK must regard Saudi Arabia as dominant force in region: Minister

1396/12/19 | 01:32
  The Saudi energy minister, who is accompanying the crown prince on a controversial visit to London, says the UK should regard the kingdom as the dominant force and gateway to new markets in the Middle East and Africa ahead of its exit from the European Union. Addressing a business conference in London on Thursday, Kalid al-Falih said the UK should turn to Saudi Arabia as “your gateway to Africa, one of the next frontiers” and an alternative to lost European markets after Brexit, The Guardian reported. “I would like to think that ...

UK, Saudi Arabia agree to finalize warplane deal despite protests

1396/12/19 | 01:32
  Saudi Arabia and Britain have decided to finalize a multi-billion-dollar deal for the sale of 48 Typhoon aircraft to Riyadh, despite massive protests against London's arms supply to the Arab kingdom during its deadly war against Yemen. In a statement to the London Stock Exchange on Friday, military equipment maker BAE Systems said it signed the preliminary order from Saudi Arabia for 48 Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets, without providing any financial details. "The UK government has signed a Memorandum of Intent with the Kingdom of ...

Saudi Arabia has a direct and obvious link to the terrorist attacks in the U.K

1396/12/18 | 01:32
  The Henry Jackson Society reveals that foreign funding from the Saudi government has a direct and obvious link to the terrorist attacks in the U.K. and other Western countries. The Henry Jackson Society evaluates that Saudi Arabia spent over $6 billion exporting Wahhabism,which fuels terrorism in 2017.There is over 110 mosques in the U.K. spreading Wahhabism. While many countries, including the US have warned about the threat of foreign terrorist financing, UK “has seen far less of a response from policy makers supporting moves to ...

How British weapons ended up killing Yemeni people

1396/12/17 | 01:32
  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 the UK must rethink its support for Saudi Arabia

1396/12/13 | 01:32
  British policy since the 1970s has to an extent appended the UK economy to the Saudi economy, making Britain a de facto client state. Government policies are meant to promote the national interest, but the upcoming visit to the UK by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman highlights something quite different: Whitehall’s pursuit of a special relationship that endangers the British public. Prime Minister Theresa May says the visit will “usher in a new era of bilateral relations” with Saudi Arabia – yet it will more likely reinforce ...

Al-Houthi Challenges US to Appear before ICC: World Must Know Who’s Killing Yemenis

1396/12/11 | 01:32
  Head of Yemen’s Revolutionary Committee Mohammad Ali al-Houthi lashed out at Washington over remarks by US officials on a Russian veto of UK-backed UN resolution on Yemen. “Remarks of US officials hold within many fallacies,” al-Houthi tweeted, challenging Washington to appear before the International Criminal Court (ICC) as he called for an independent and unbiased committee in order to probe the alleged violations reported by US. The world must know who has been committing crimes against Yemeni people on daily basis, the Yemeni ...

Why Iran and Britain can never be friends

1396/12/10 | 01:32
  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 ...

UK-drafted anti-Iran resolution fails at UNSC

1396/12/8 | 01:32
  A UK-drafted resolution aimed at pressuring Iran over alleged weapons supplies to Yemeni fighters has failed at the UN Security Council. On Monday, the resolution gained 11 favorable votes at the 15-member Security Council but was halted by Russia's veto. "We cannot concur with uncorroborated conclusions and evidence which requires verification and discussions within the sanctions committee," Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia told the council. Earlier in the month, Britain circulated a draft resolution that would renew sanctions ...

UK to send Royal Navy warship through disputed South China Sea in challenge to Beijing

1396/11/25 | 01:32
  A Royal Navy warship will sail through the South China Sea in an effort to assert freedom of navigation rights in waters where Beijing is increasingly extending its control.   HMS Sutherland, a Type 23 frigate, will travel through the key trading lane after concluding a visit to Australia, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson announced.   China claims large areas of the South China Sea and has been bolstering its military deployments there, including reclaiming land on reefs and atolls to build air bases.   Mr Williamson ...

UK bodies delivering education in Saudi: ‘The reality was more difficult than we expected’

1396/11/18 | 01:32
British education institutes are finding that the promise of growth in Saudi Arabia by delivering multimillion pound projects is far more challenging than they initially bargained for.   With one of the world’s largest youth population – more than 60 per cent of the Saudi population is aged the under of 30 – and a King seeking to reform the country at a staggering pace, projects in the Kingdom seemed to be a lucrative venture. However, a British college overseeing $347 million projects is finding that “the reality [was] more difficult ...

Protesters gather outside Saudi embassy in London to condemn UK arms sales

1396/11/17 | 01:32
  Protesters have rallied outside the Saudi embassy in London against UK's arms sales to the kingdom, which has been waging a destructive war on Yemen for some three years now. The demonstration, organized by the UK-based Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) group, featured campaigners expressing their outrage at British profiteering from the ongoing bloodshed which has taken more than 13,500 Yemeni lives so far. Ian Pocock, a spokesman for the CAAT, said London was "complicit in the assault on Yemen", calling on British citizens to protest ...

UK’s new property laws: A deep trouble for Pakistan politicians

1396/11/16 | 01:32
  The UK government has introduced new rules giving unprecedented powers to law enforcement agencies to crack down on properties and assets amassed through “dirty money”.   Under the new rules, which are designed to stop corrupt people from using Britain as a safe haven, individuals can be fined and jailed if they make misleading statements.   The order that came into force recently allows authorities to freeze and recover property of more than 50,000 pounds if individuals cannot explain why they own assets worth more ...

UK doctors refusing urgent surgeries due to bed shortage

1396/11/16 | 01:32
  Doctors in the UK have been refusing to perform urgent surgeries on patients with potentially fatal diseases due to serious shortage of intensive care beds in British hospitals. Hospitals have been cancelling urgent surgery for patients with cancer, heart disease and other life-threatening illnesses, despite National Health Service (NHS) orders not to delay such operations. Some patients have had their procedures cancelled several times, even though their critical situation means a surgery is urgent. Others have had operations cancelled ...

UK goes crazy, says Russia is planning mass murder

1396/11/10 | 01:32
  UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson is really settling into his job, and started the weekend early by scaring the hell out of the British public by claiming Russia could cause “thousands and thousands and thousands” of deaths. Why stop there? Why not millions of deaths? Or trillions? Gazillions? “What they [Russia] are looking at doing is they are going to be thinking ‘How can we just cause so much pain to Britain?’” Williamson said. “Damage its economy, rip its infrastructure apart, actually cause thousands and thousands ...

Where do Yemeni missiles come from?

1396/11/9 | 01:32
  Saudi Arabia’s brutal military aggression against Yemen has taken quite a few drastic turns ever since its beginning in March 2015. The deadly war has seen Saudis use illegal weapons such as cluster bombs over populated areas without any raised eyebrows in the West.   The war has also seen the Riyadh regime’s allies such as the US and the UK ramp up their arms deals with the monarchy despite international outcry. All of this, however, has been overshadowed by one question the answer to which has so far defied observers: How ...

Macron asks Saudi king to lift Yemen blockade: Report

1396/10/7 | 01:32
French President Emanuel Macron has reportedly asked King Salman of Saudi Arabia to remove a long-running blockade on Yemen and let humanitarian aid through, as millions of Yemeni civilians struggle with the humanitarian crisis caused by an ongoing Saudi military invasion. The Saudi-led war, which began in March 2015, was one of the main issues Macron discussed with the Saudi monarch over the phone on Wednesday, an Elysee source told Reuters. The constant bombing by Saudi Arabia and its regional allies, including the United Arab Emirates, has ...

Jerusalem solidarity protests continue in UK cities

1396/10/4 | 01:32
  Protests against the Trump declaration on Jerusalem have continued for the third week running in cities across Britain with no sign of abating.      On Saturday, hundreds of protesters rallied in Birmingham in response to calls from the Palestine Forum in Britain (PFB), the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Birmingham Council of Mosques.     Representatives from a number of civil society organisations addressed the rally, all emphasising their rejection of the US president’s claim and support for Palestinian ...

UK: “20,000 Muslim Terrorist Suspects

1396/9/22 | 01:32
  UK Prime Minister Theresa May—herself the target of a new Muslim terrorist assignation plot—has warned of a “right wing” danger to Britain, even though 90 percent of all terrorists in the UK are Muslim, and currently there are more than 20,000 Muslims under surveillance by authorities.   May’s ridiculous allegation that Britain faced a “right wing terrorist threat” was made in Jordan only a few days before UK police swooped on a Muslim pair, Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, and Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, for a plan ...

US brought UK senior officials to keep Pak military on side

1396/9/12 | 01:32
  British security think-tank, the Royal Unites Services Institute (RUSI), has said that relationship between British and Pakistani armies is transforming from one based mostly on pomp ceremony and personal friendships to one based on shared strategic interests.   In an analysis, the RUSI drew similarities and closeness between the two armies and said that armies of two countries have grown closer in recent years. It said that the Pakistan Army can sometimes be more British than the British Army, at least when it comes to pomp and ...

Ire in UK over Trump anti-Islam retweets

1396/9/9 | 01:32
  The White House is defending US President Donald Trump’s anti-Islam retweets, which have drawn rebuke in the UK, reviving calls for revoking his planned visit to Britain. The widely condemned retweets of unverified videos, posted by leader of the far-right organization Britain First Jayda Fransen, purportedly showed violence committed by Muslims. "@realDonaldTrump you are not welcome in my country and my city," said Labour Party lawmaker David Lammy in a tweet on Wednesday, while another Labour legislator, Chuka Umunna, said directly ...

Prominent Bahraini Shia cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim’s health worsening: Activists

1396/9/7 | 01:32
  A human rights group says the health condition of Bahrain’s top Shia cleric, Sheikh Isa Qassim, who has been under a virtual house arrest since last year, has dramatically deteriorated in recent days, warning that he is in urgent need of medical treatment. According to a statement by the UK-based Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy (BIRD) on Monday, physicians who had visited the spiritual leader at his home in the northwestern village of Diraz a day earlier had diagnosed him to be suffering from a “groin hernia requiring ...

Bahraini pounds buy UK silence on human rights abuses

1396/9/4 | 01:32
  From a small office in central London, Bahraini exile Sayed Alwadaei is taking on the abusive monarchy that runs his home country.   Amongst the most prolific commentators on the deteriorating human rights situation in Bahrain, activist Alwadaei has been indefatigable in his calls for basic reforms. His approach to human rights personifies fairness, an absence of sectarianism, and honesty.   Last month, Alwadaei wrote about how his mother had recently passed away, and his daughter was due to arrive into this world “stateless”. ...

How has Islamophobia changed over the past 20 years?

1396/8/28 | 01:32
    Anti-Muslim hatred has become more pervasive and entrenched in the UK, compared with 20 years ago, according to a report by the think tank that catapulted the term “Islamophobia” in 1997. Runnymede Trust’s latest survey, released on Tuesday, came two decades after the group first launched a groundbreaking report highlighting racism faced by British Muslims. “Over the past two decades awareness of Islamophobia has increased, whether in terms of discrimination against Muslims, or in terms of public and policy discussion ...

UK Hindu minister urges military aid to Israel

1396/8/23 | 01:32
  British foreign aid minister Priti Patel, 45, has urged anti-Muslim prime minister Theresa May to provide aid to Israel Occupation Force (IOF) to defend Israel from it next-door enemies – Hizbullah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza, and Iranian fighters in Syria.   She also suggested that London should provide humanitarian to the Israel-occupied Syrian territory Golan Heights where Israel army runs field clinics to provide medial treatment to wounded members of ISIS terrorist group.   Priti Patel was in Zionist entity on a 12-day ...

Shafaqna analysis: Why Pakistan cannot bring Altaf Hussain back?

1396/8/23 | 01:32
    Pakistan has provided fresh ‘damning evidence’ to British authorities against alleged involvement of Muttahida Qaumi Movement-London supremo on laundering billions as well as his contact with Indian spy agency-RAW, seeking London’s help for a ‘conclusive headway’ into an ongoing investigation against the leaders of MQM-London, MQM-Pakistan and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP).     The ‘fresh damning evidence’ carried over fresh record of around a dozen bank accounts, which were once being used by leaders of ...

The untold story: why Priti Patel’s departure is ‘a great loss for Israel’

1396/8/22 | 01:32
  It is easy enough to understand why an ambitious politician like Priti Patel would have wanted to court Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI), described this week by The Jewish Chronicle’s reporter Marcus Dysch as “the biggest lobbying group in Westminster”.   But what about the Israeli government and its allies? Why, in the words of Israeli opposition politician Isaac Herzog, was Patel’s fall from grace a “great loss for Israel”?   True, she looked like future leadership material. But in fact, a more interesting ...

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

1396/8/18 | 01:32
    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 | 01:32
  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 ...

Malicious anti-Pakistan slogans: Who is behind the smear campaign?

1396/8/13 | 01:32
  Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua summoned the British High Commissioner in Pakistan Thomas Drew on Friday over slogans being displayed on London cabs "that directly attack Pakistan's territorial integrity and sovereignty."     According to a statement released by the Foreign Office, "the high commissioner was informed that Pakistan, in line with the UN Charter, rejects actions and advertisements with malicious content that impinge on our sovereignty and territorial integrity."   It said that the "issue was also being ...
