“The formation of the Islamic Republic establishment in Iran and declaration of the [International] Quds Day, and the changing of the Zionist regime [of Israel]'s embassy in Tehran to Palestine's embassy were … moves that countered the 60-year conspiracy of colonialism to erase Palestine from the map,” the Leader [Khamenie] added.
The late founder of the Islamic Revolution of Iran, Ayatollah Rouhollah Khomeini, named the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan as the Quds Day, calling for worldwide rallies in support of Palestinians.

NATO ground operation reported to have started

As I write these words, Tripoli is attacked by up to five thousand mercenaries from European private military companies, Qatar and other countries. They come from the sea.
Ground operation of NATO in Libya, contrary to all earlier assurances of politicians and the public, has begun.
It's already not a secret that the first wave of reports about rebels taking Tripoli with no effort was nothing but a global fantasy...designed to distract the viewer from the far more cruel and terrible reality.
Instead of the truimphant rebels' entry on the streets, basking in the city's jubilant freedom -- urgent landing of [duh] Al-Qaeda Mujahideen and PMC [Private Military Company] troops.
Instead of citizens hailing their "liberators" -- a mass slaughter performed by mercenaries from France and Qatar.
Instead of the capture of a man resembling Saif al-Islam -- an attempt to eliminate Qaddafi
family, that failed miserably though.
The destruction of communications and blockade of Libyan television did not prevent Saif and Moussa Ibrahim from being interviewed, leaving the media machine in disarray for some time.
The media drew conclusions.
The second wave was more sophisticated: Qatari footage was generously diluted with real videos of Islamists [?] seizing Bab al-Aziz. Here it is useful to recall that the complex was deserted long ago because of continuous bombings, so making the hole in the fence and occupating ruins is not a big victory. But a PR! What a psychological pressure! The tyrant is on the run, his symbols are desecrated!
And under this cover, you can freely make a second attempt and disembark French troops on the coast next to Tripoli on 24th of August. According to some reports, this is the Foreign Legion.
