Leaked Emails: UAE Paid $10m to Settle US Torture Case
TEHRAN (FNA)- The UAE bought the silence of an American arms dealer who was allegedly tortured by Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi, during the 1980s, according to leaked emails obtained media outlets.

Khaled al-Hassen, a businessman and naturalized US citizen, alleged that he was abducted, taken to a secret location, tortured and forced to sign a false confession while working in the United Arab Emirates, Middle East Eye reported.

Among the torturers, the suit alleged, were bin Zayed, his brother and president of the UAE, Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and General Saeed Hilal Abdullah al-Darmaki, at one time the minister for interior affairs.

The 20 emails seen by Middle East Eye, which cover the period from 10 May 2010 to 6 March 2014, reveal correspondence between Yousef al-Otaiba, the Emirati ambassador to the US, and Paul Hastings, a Washington legal firm hired to defend the three men.

In 2013, Hassen and his lawyers agreed a settlement of $10m, to be delivered to five separate accounts.

Hamilton Loeb, a partner at Paul Washington, emailed Otaiba on 2 July 2010, to explain that Hassen was opposing the defence team’s Motion to Dismiss the suit.

In his email Loeb enlarges on some of the background to some of the allegations made by Hassen.

Hassen was hired circa 1981 by Emirate royals to start a marketing firm, the email reports.

The company represented big US companies including Beech Aircraft, ITT, Raytheon, General Dynamics and Bell Helicopters as they “competed for contracts with French, British, and Italian companies represented by the Defendants”.

At stake were lucrative deals in the defence sector as the UAE, flush with oil revenues, began to arm itself with high-tech weaponry.

“Hassen also says there was conflict between Sheikh Zayed and the father of Khaled/Shaya, Sheikh Ahmed, and ‘arising out of the transfer of land without compensation owned by Ahmed to the Saudis’.”

Loeb also reports that Hassen said he was “wrongly accused of ‘engaging in misdeeds involving contracts with the UAE to purchase French Mirage jets’”; and that the defendants believed he was a “CIA operative and, during torture, demanded he provide a list of all CIA operatives in the UAE”.

In the same email, Loeb repeats Hassen’s allegations that he was “abducted in Jan. 1984, kept in a secret prison, not part of the UAE police or judicial system, ‘beaten daily’ by the general ‘and by Sheikh Mohammed and those acting on their behalf’. Bin Zayed, known as MBZ, was a young officer in the Emirati air force at the time.

In an email of 7 May 2010 to Otaiba, Loeb says, quoting Hassen’s suit, that he was subjected to sleep deprivation, withdrawal of air conditioning in his cell, handcuffed and dragged, held upside down, forced to ingest “strange tasting liquids” and suffered abuse of his genitals.

Hassen was allegedly told, Loeb says, that if he ever talked about what had happened to him “you will never see your family again”. He also claimed that he was threatened at gunpoint.

As a next step, Loeb asks in the email: “Any information to show Hassen is a gold-digger? A tool of internal opponents of current regime?”

Strategy to keep story out of media

The US government, at the instigation of Hassen’s family and their member of Congress, made enquiries about him.

But, according to Loeb in an email of 2 July 2010 to the UAE ambassador, “the defendants lied to the USG (US government) that he was not detained in the UAE”. After nine months, Hassen was allowed to meet with a consular representative.

Hassen had secured State Department cables that showed that only after initially denying it, did they acknowledge he was being held by a “special state security arm… …under personal supervision of ‘highest levels’ of government”. Loeb, on 2 July 2010, describes the cables as “somewhat ugly”.

Much of the emails between the lawyers and representatives of the UAE government concerns the defence team’s efforts to claim diplomatic immunity and have the suit dismissed.

Richard Mintz, managing director of The Harbour Group, a Washington-based public affairs and communications consultancy, tells Loeb, Otaiba and others in 26 July 2011 that “our legal strategy is to contest venue and standing, rather than the substance of the suit and we may not want to introduce facts into our defense at this time”.

There is no mention of a strategy to challenge Hassen’s allegations: rather, the overriding concern was to keep the story out of the public eye.

The case received little media coverage with the exception of an article in the Daily Journal, a legal publication. The article is no longer available on the site but can be found on the website of Hassen’s lawyer, Roger W Clark.

Published in August 2010, it notes: “A federal judge is weighing whether to green-light a human rights lawsuit with sensitive geopolitical implications that seeks civil monetary damages from three members of the royal family in Abu Dhabi - including the emir, a key US ally in the Middle East.”

It says that the law firm Clark, Goldberg & Madruga in Century City, filed the suit on behalf of Hassen in February 2009.

His attorneys told the court, the Journal reported, that the alleged torture and detention took place over a 22-month period.

It said his attorneys explained there were two reasons for his decision to file a suit. “The first, after the Sept 11 terrorist attacks, Al Hassan gradually decided he was safer in the US from assassins from the Middle East, his attorneys said. Second, he recently obtained US State Department memos that detailed government-led efforts to locate him in the United Arab Emirates and find out the reason for his imprisonment.”

The defendants’ lawyers were successful in securing immunity for Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan as president of the UAE.

However, as the case dragged on, the defence team became increasingly concerned that the trial judge would not accept the argument of diplomatic immunity for Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan and al-Darmaki.

As the email from Loeb on 2 July 2010 notes, there is a concern that Hassen’s lawyers will shop the story to the press “We would be [shopping it], if we were in their shoes.”

And on 23 July 2012, Loeb tells the ambassador of a proposal that would “involve a quick negotiation with the State Department on a bilateral agreement that limits the forms of legal process on a narrow category of senior officials.”

This deal would have allowed immunity for Mohammed bin Zayed, the deputy supreme commander of the armed forces, along with that for his US counterpart, the undersecretary of defence, for any action brought against either of them

“We are calling it the 'Dick Cheney' agreement,” Loeb writes, “since, from the US perspective, it would have the benefit of protecting officials such as the former vice president from being served in foreign lawsuits in similar circumstances.”

The email concludes, “we have not yet tested the temperature at State for this proposal.” The response is not known, but the fact that a settlement was reached with Hassen suggests it was unsuccessful.

When it came to payment, one account was blocked. An email from an embassy employee to the ambassador on 9 May 2013 recounts the effort to unblock it: “HSBC called me back yesterday saying that all transfer were well done except one in the amount of $1.3 million which the bank is putting on hold pending receiving information about Hassen; including full name, permanent address, citizenship, date and place of birth and the reason for the transfer.”

On 25 February 2014, Loeb wrote to the ambassador: “I am told the 2014 settlement payments to Hassen and Roger Clark (Hassen’s lawyer) are due to be released from the blocked account… Our LA team has run several searches and has not found any recent press related to Khaled al-Hassen. Before the next payment in the settlement goes out, they have asked me to check to see if you have any information on press leaks that should hold up the payment. Anything?”

To which Obaid replied on 6 March: “I’m not aware of anything.”

Ex-Director of UK Soccer Club Files Torture Complaint against UAE Officials
TEHRAN (FNA)- A former managing director of Leeds United Football Club lodged a complaint with the Metropolitan Police claiming that he was tortured by UAE police officers while he was held in Dubai in 2014.

Lawyers for David Haigh, who claims he was repeatedly tortured by police officers while he was imprisoned in the country for two years, announced a "legal challenge" at a press conference in central London, Middle East Eye reported.

“I was tortured, abused and denied access to my lawyer,” said Haigh, who was released in March and returned to the UK. He is still undergoing treatment after his ordeal, which saw him beaten and subjected to acts "just short" of sexual assault while in prison on charges of creating false invoices.

'We want to see that those who subjected him to torture in Dubai are brought to justice'

His legal team has now lodged an official complaint with the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command, which is responsible for the investigation of all allegations torture, as well a crimes against humanity.

Haigh's legal team will also follow up on a previously-lodged complaint with the United Nations panel that examines arbitrary incarceration and abuse of prisoners in jails around the world.

“We want to see that those who subjected him to torture in Dubai are brought to justice,” said Toby Cadman, an international human rights lawyer who is heading Haigh’s case.

“We also want it recognised through the UN system and through a criminal trial that he David was subjected to the most brutal forms of torture,” added Cadman, who is the head and co-founder the Guernica 37 International Justice Chambers.

Cadman said that an initial complaint was made with the Metropolitan Police on Tuesday and that additional evidence of Haigh’s mistreatment in Dubai will follow in the coming weeks. "This is the first time Haigh’s case of torture is being brought to the attention of the British authorities,” he said.

Although Cadman believes “there is an overwhelming amount of evidence” to support Haigh’s claims, he will also have to “rely on political will from the British and UAE governments,” he told MEE.

“We are not bringing this case against the UAE, it is against named individuals. We hope that the UAE will cooperate,” he added.

Dubai authorities have not yet commented on the allegations.

Haigh was arrested in Dubai in May 2014 on suspicion of committing fraud, based on allegations brought by the Dubai-based private equity group GFH Capital, the Bahrain-based bank that used to co-own Leeds United.

He denies the charges of faking invoices and illegally channelling money to bank accounts under his control, saying that he was set up by GFH Capital, his former employer.

'I never knew that there was a dark side to the life I was living in Dubai'

Haigh said the experience was “horrific” adding that the claimed abuse began shortly after his arrest.

“I never knew that there was a dark side to what I was living in Dubai,” said Haigh, who’d lived a peaceful life in Dubai for eight years before his arrest.

“I was locked up with no evidence and without any investigation in a police cell,” said Haigh.

“I recall sitting in what I can only describe as a hell hole, staring up at the towers above me, and thinking how on earth did this happen.”

Haigh has previously said that the abuse in prison stopped just short of sexual assault, but that he attended rape counselling after he returned to the UK. Haigh, who is gay, has said some of his worst moments in prison came when inmates discovered his sexuality.

Although Haigh wants an apology for the torture he was subjected to, he says, he wants to use his experience to stop it from happening to others. He says that in addition to his own ordeal, he witnessed other inmates being tortured.

“While I was in prison, I met hundreds of expats who were imprisoned over things they didn’t know were illegal,” said Haigh. “It is the responsibility of the embassies, including the British embassy, to advise citizens to be more careful.”

Haigh had previously said that Britain’s embassy in the UAE provided him “wholly inadequate” support. He hopes that by filing his complaint with the Met Police, he will receive justice however.

“The British government at the moment are putting trade before pretty much everything else. Our complaint is to the Met Police, who are independent of the government. I am hopeful in the British justice which is unbiased and incorruptible.”

According to Joe Odell, press officer at the International Campaign for Freedom in the United Arab Emirates (ICFUAE), “David’s case is symptomatic of a wider issue facing foreign nationals in the UAE, where there are many similar cases of torture and abuse of people in UAE prisons.”

The ICFUAE heads several campaigns to support political activists and democratic reform in the UAE. One of its campaigns is dedicated to raising awareness about Haigh’s case as well as other human rights violations in Emirati prisons.

“We hope that this campaign will help bring justice to David but also raise awareness about the many human rights violations currently taking place in the UAE,” said Odell.

“We also hope to compel the British government to hold the UAE to account over its human rights violations,” he added.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says he was astonished to learn the US president’s son has been slammed for talking to a Russian lawyer. The minister has lampooned the accusations, saying they were “wild” and making a mountain out of a molehill.
“I was amazed to find out that Trump’s son is accused of talking to her [Natalia Veselnitskaya]. For me it’s basically wild, because when a person talks to a lawyer, what is the threat to anyone?” the top Russian diplomat said.

Russian Prosecutor General’s Office denies link to Trump Jr. meeting with Russian lawyer (EXCLUSIVE)
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office had nothing to do with the meeting of private Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya with Donald Trump Jr., its official representative told RT, calling allegations of any involvement “insane.”

There have been allegations of the possible involvement of the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office in brokering the meeting. Denis Grunis, who heads the international cooperation department of the Prosecutor General’s Office, however, strongly denies the claims.

Based on international agreements, any information sharing between the Russian Office of the Prosecutor General and its foreign colleagues only happens through official channels and formal queries, Grunis told RT on Friday.

According to a 1999 treaty, Moscow sends any information about criminal cases to the US Department of Justice through an established direct channel of communication, he said.

“It is insane to think that the Prosecutor General’s Office would use a private lawyer to transfer information,” the official said, adding that he has already said the same to “about a dozen major western media outlets.”

None of them, however, after requesting a comment, have used it in their reports on the issue, he added.

His office’s cooperation with American colleagues is “quite an efficient mechanism,” Grunis said, adding that the two departments are “in constant communication.” In 2015, over a hundred queries were sent to the US by the Russian side, while American officials requested assistance 35 times.

“Even though we have no extradition treaty, we still succeed in ensuring the inevitability of punishment for those who commit crimes via sharing information and evidence that the [US] Department of Justice needs,” Grunis told RT.

Media hype emerged in the West when a report appeared saying that the US president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., together with the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and then-campaign chairman Paul J. Manafort, met with a private Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, in June of last year. The woman allegedly claimed she had damaging information on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

This week, Donald Trump Jr. released the full chain of emails related to the meeting, stating that it had nothing to do with Trump’s election campaign, and that the lawyer “wanted to talk about adoption policy and the Magnitsky Act.”

Commenting on the issue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, “It is amazing how serious people are making an elephant out of a fly.”

この問題、まだ継続するでしょうが、当初MSMが予断をもって報じたようなものではないようです。上で引用したツイートをよく読んでいただくと、MSMの報道に大げさに驚いたり、短絡的に即断しているものが多いことが分かるでしょう。冷静に今後の展開に注目する立場をとっていると見られるのは、※ やのっち(。・ɜ・)d‏ @_yanocchi0519氏です。



Russian lawyer Veselnitskaya says Magnitsky Act lobbyist Browder behind Trump Jr. scandal
The scandal concerning the meeting between US President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was orchestrated by Magnitsky Act lobbyist William Browder, the lawyer told RT in an exclusive interview.

"I´m ready to clarify the situation behind this mass hysteria – but only through lawyers or testifying in the Senate," Veselnitskaya told RT.

“I can only assume that the current situation that has been heated up for ten days or so by now is a a very well-orchestrated story concocted by one particular manipulator – Mr. Browder. He is one of the greatest experts in the field of manipulating mass media,” Veselnitskaya said.

She went on to say that Browder, who is the founder and CEO of the Hermitage Capital investment company, orchestrated this whole disinformation campaign as revenge for the defeat he suffered in a US court in 2013 from a team of lawyers that included Veselnitskaya.

Russian Lawyer: Magnitsky Act Lobbyist Browder behind Trump Jr. Scandal
TEHRAN (FNA)- The scandal concerning the meeting between US President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was orchestrated by Magnitsky Act lobbyist William Browder, the lawyer said.

"I´m ready to clarify the situation behind this mass hysteria, but only through lawyers or testifying in the Senate," Veselnitskaya said, RT reported.

“I can only assume that the current situation that has been heated up for ten days or so by now is a a very well-orchestrated story concocted by one particular manipulator., Mr. Browder. He is one of the greatest experts in the field of manipulating mass media,” Veselnitskaya said.

She went on to say that Browder, who is the founder and CEO of the Hermitage Capital investment company, orchestrated this whole disinformation campaign as revenge for the defeat he suffered in a US court in 2013 from a team of lawyers that included Veselnitskaya.

“I have absolutely no doubt that this whole information campaign is being spun, encouraged and organized by that very man as revenge for the defeat he suffered in court of the Southern State of New York in the ‘Prevezon’ company case,” she said.

"He wasn't able to convince the court with his lousy human tragedy that actually never happened, about the fate of a dead man - who he only learnt about after his death."

In 2013, Veselnitskaya was one of the lawyers who represented a Cyprus-based holding company Prevezon, owned by Russian businessman Denis Katsyv, in its defense against allegations of money laundering in a court of the Southern State of New York.

The case was settled with no admission of guilt by Prevezon.

The lawyer insisted her meeting with Trump Jr. was aimed at countering Browder’s lobbying in America and had nothing to do with the US presidential election.

“I am already tired of talking about it, but apparently nobody wants to hear. This was the story that I brought to Donald Trump Jr. I wanted him to know that Browder, a person who gave up his US citizenship, is trying to manipulate people in Congress,” she said.

“If the Senate wishes to hear the real story, I will be happy to speak up and share everything I wanted to tell Mr. Trump,” she added, referring to the alleged economic crimes that Browder is suspected of in Russia. “I will share everything I know about this situation when millions came into my country and billions left it – and nobody paid taxes.”

Veselnitskaya also said she is now concerned for the safety of her family as it's been revealed that Browder’s team spied on her family's activities even before her meeting with Trump Jr.

“It’s been revealed that Mr. Browder and his team have been gathering information about my family,” she told RT, adding, that Browder’s team “found photos of my house and sent them to Kyle Parker… a famous man in the House of Representatives, who worked for Mr Browder for many years – and not for any congressmen or congress as a whole.”

People working for Browder also shared all her personal details with representatives of the State Department, Veselnitskaya said.

Earlier, an email containing an alleged photo of the Veselnitskaya’s house was discovered in a trove of emails published online by an unidentified party. It was allegedly obtained from the account of a US State Department intelligence official tasked with monitoring Russia. The email was presumably sent by Browder to Parker on June 6, 2016.

Veselnitskaya also complained about the media attention she now endures over her meeting with Trump Jr., saying the story has been blown out of proportion. Critics of President Donald Trump see the meeting as evidence of his campaign’s collusion with the Russian government meant to undermine his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. The Russian lawyer firmly denied speculation that the meeting was coordinated by the Russian Prosecutor General’s office.

Browder has a long history of hostility against Russia. In 2013, he was sentenced in absentia to nine years in prison for tax evasion. He was also the boss of the late Russian auditor Sergey Magnitsky.

According to the 2013 court verdict, Browder together with Magnitsky failed to pay over 552 million rubles in taxes (about US$16 million). The businessman was also found guilty of illegally buying shares in the country’s natural gas monopoly, Gazprom, costing Russia at least 3 billion rubles (US$100 million).

Magnitsky died in pre-trial custody in 2009. His death led to a strain in Russian-American relations. US authorities eventually imposed sanctions against Russian officials they deemed responsible for the auditor’s death by issuing the so-called Magnitsky list in 2012. Browder also lobbied European states to follow Washington’s lead.

The Magnitsky Act is a 2012 law that allows the United States to seize assets from a number of alleged Russian human rights abusers, as well as barring them from entering the country. Russia retaliated by prohibiting American families from adopting Russian children.

カナビス 大麻の医薬品としての効用に注目が集まる

Use cannabis in Parliament, Labour MP urges (VIDEO)
People should use cannabis on the parliamentary estate to force the government to change the law and help sufferers of serious illness, according to Welsh Labour MP Paul Flynn.

Speaking during a Commons debate on drug policy, Flynn said he had once committed a “terrible crime” by helping the late multiple sclerosis sufferer and medicinal cannabis campaigner Elizabeth Brice – also known as Clare Hodges – to use the drug on the House of Commons terrace.

He said he had brought her a cup of hot water in which she prepared cannabis tea used to alleviate the symptoms of her condition. It was a crime, Flynn said, which could have seen both of them jailed under current laws.

Flynn said that using the Class B drug is the only way to get through to “the common mind of the government.”

“I would call on people, and I know we’re not supposed to do this as members, to break the law,” he told MPs.

“To come here and use cannabis here and see what happens and challenge the government, the authorities, to arrest them and take them in.

“That’s the only way we can get through the common mind of the government, which is set in concrete and the whole laws are evidence free and prejudice rich – let’s see them do that.”

The debate saw Liberal Democrat Health Spokesman Norman Lamb renew his call for a liberalized drug policy. He said it would benefit public health to create a proper market for cannabis.

Manchester MP and former nightclub DJ Jeff Smith said legislation is long overdue and that the government had to be careful not to lose the message on drugs.

“Many thousands, probably hundreds of thousands, of ecstasy pills are taken in the UK every week and we can’t pretend that people are taking drugs because it is a terrible, miserable experience, because people won’t believe us,” Smith said.

“It will just destroy the credibility of the message.”

タルアファルのISISが戦闘員家族の集団処刑開始 イラクからの逃亡で密貿業者に2万ドル支払い

Tal Afar: ISIL Starts Mass Execution of Own Family Members for Fear of Imminent Operation of Iraqi Forces
TEHRAN (FNA)- ISIL terrorists have started mass execution of their own family members in the town of Tal Afar in Western Nineveh following release of news about the Iraqi forces' imminent operation to liberate the town, a well-informed government official said.

The source said that based on a Fatwa (religious decree) issued by ISIL's Religious Board the ISIL terrorists are executing their own family members in Tal Afar.

The source further said that the ISIL's Religious Board has issued the Fatwa for the mass killing of family members before the start of the Iraqi forces' operation in order not to be exposed and handed over to the army men by the family members in Tal Afar.

The source went on to say that the road connecting Tal Afar to Mosul and Syria's border is controlled by the Iraqi forces and the town is under the pro-government forces' siege, and the Iraqi forces and volunteer forces of Hashd al-Shaabi will storm the central part of Tal Afar in next few days.

A security source in Nineveh province in Northwestern Iraq reported on Sunday that ISIL executed 12 senior commanders that tried to flee the town of Tal Afar.

The source said that ISIL arrested 12 commanders of its forces in Tal Afar and executed them on charges of fleeing the town.

The source added that after their defeat in Mosul and losing a large number of fighters the ISIL's front in Tal Afar has collapsed.

Foreign Commanders of ISIL Paying $20,000 to Human Traffickers While Fleeing Iraq
TEHRAN (FNA)- A local source in Kirkuk province reported that human traffickers have increased the price for transferring foreign commanders of the ISIL terrorist group from Iraq after the recent victories of the Iraqi forces.

The source said that the fee for the trafficking the foreign commanders of ISIL from the towns Tal Afar and Huweija to Iraq's border has risen to $20,000.

The source went on to say that the hike has come after ISIL's recent defeats in battle against the Iraqi pro-government forces, adding, "A vast wave of immigration is happening among the foreign members of ISIL from Iraq towards the neighboring countries. The fleeing members of ISIL are not capable of leaving Iraq without assistance of human traffickers."

Reports said on Monday that the Hezbollah al-Nujaba, a major Iraqi Shiite resistance movement fighting the ISIL, continued its anti-terrorism operation and managed to impose control over more regions in the Iraq-Syria-Jordan border triangle.

Al-Nujaba forces stormed ISIL's positions in Iraq-Syria-Jordan border triangle and captured al-Hajar and al-Bareka regions Southeast of Homs desert and two main roads to the Syria's desert.

In the meantime, al-Nujaba's missile units opened heavy fire at ISIL's positions and destroyed several armored and military vehicles in Um al-Raml region in Syria' desert.

An Iraqi commander that led the war to retake Iraq’s second largest city said on Sunday that the security operations against the ISIL militants in Mosul left 25,000 militants dead.

Lt. Gen. Abdul-Amir Yarallah, head of the Nineveh Operations at the Joint Operations Command, said in a briefing that more than 25,000 militants were killed over the nine months of battles, including more than 450 suicide bombers, Iraqi News reported.

Iraqi forces destroyed 1247 booby-trapped cars and shot down 130 drones belonging to the group besides more than 1500 diverse vehicles, Yarallah said.

The JOC fought the battle with more than 100.000 government and paramilitary troops, Yarallah added. “The Iraqi army fought a battle that no army in the world had fought,” the commander said.

Only the regions of Mahalabiya, Ayyadia and Tal Afar still witness an ISIL existence, and with their recapture, the province becomes fully liberated, according to the commander.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared victory over ISIL in Mosul on July 9th after Iraqi forces took over western Mosul’s Old City, the birthplace of the ISIL where the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, made a sermon proclaiming control over a third of Iraq and Syria.

In a separate statement, Iyad al-Assali, an Iraqi police lieutenant, told Turkish agency Anadolu that security arrested 245 suspected ISIL militants in Western Mosul’s Old City since Iraqi troops took over the medieval area.

Iraqi Forces Arrest Foreign Female Members of ISIL in Mosul
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iraqi forces have arrested a number of ISIL's female members with different nationalities in a tunnel in Old Mosul district, a counter-terrorism officer reported.

The Iraqi officer said that a number of non-Iraqi female members of the ISIL terrorist group, including five Germans and some others from Russia, Turkey, Canada and Chechnya have been arrested by the pro-government forces in a tunnel in the Old Mosul district.

The officer added that the captured women that had hidden in the tunnel had their guns and explosive belts.

Media reports said on Sunday that the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) found a massive ISIL base for the production of vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED) in the liberated city of Mosul as they began scouting out throughout the Northern city.

Most alarmingly, Iraqi troops discovered literally dozens of ready-made armored VBIEDs which, had the battle for Mosul city lingered on any longer, would have undoubtedly have been used against them.

Iraqi troops discovered literally dozens of ready-made armored VBIEDs which, had the battle for Mosul city lingered on any longer, would have undoubtedly have been used against them.

Despite the fact that the VBIEDs were found neatly lined up in an almost production line-like fashion, one crucial element was to the fortune of ISF ordinance disposal teams found to be missing from the vehicles: explosives.

The VBIEDs seized by the ISF appear to be of the latest generation design used by ISIL. The car bombs have welded-on armor plating that shields the vehicle, as much as possible, from incoming fire, giving a would-be suicide driver a better chance of reaching their target.

In most cases, the armored VBIEDs built by ISIL are generally given just enough shielding as to not over-stress the engine of the vehicle used but to still offer decent protection from a range of small arms, including heavy machine guns. Often anti-ISIL forces have to employ anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM), RPGs, field guns and tank cannons in order to destroy the armored car bomb.

ずくなしさんも以前放射性物質と天気の関係について触れられているかもしれませんが失礼します。 ふと気になりましたが大量の放射性物質は黒い雨が有名ですがそれ以外にも天気を変えるのでしょうか。

ずくなしさんのブログにあった >
※ マッツ・ @VirginBlade_aki氏の2017/7/16のツイート 今、新潟県新潟市西蒲区で強風と雨が降ってます。風向きから、考えて、柏崎市にある柏崎刈羽原発由来の放射能と思われます。ここで、最高で、ガイガーカウンターで11.0μsv/hを測定しました。それから、ずっとアラームが鳴り1μsv/hになってます。 最大限の警戒をしてください。

こちらのツイート。そしてこちらのツイート、 >

これ等を勘案すると放射性物質は天気を荒れさせるかもしれないです。新潟・福島の豪雨や首都圏の雹に関係があるかもしれません。 勿論放射性物質だけが天候を荒れさせる原因ではないと思いますが。 一方でこのようなツイートもあります。この方によれば風は首都圏に向かってないようです。実際、風向きがどのようになっているかはわかりません。 >

Out Of Our Heads @N0NUKES 3 時間 返信先 @N0NUKES F2・F1からの風は早朝から なぜか?北海道方面や首都圏へ流れるの避けるように 仙台あたりで渦まいてる。 そのために宮城、岩手の核汚染が凄まじい。 最高で0.448μSv/h! F1の汚染だけじゃないんだよ。 群発地震でイカレて放射能モレた女川原発の #過去の放出分 もミックス! pic.twitter.com/HE7CBbEbph

この方によれば最近福島第2原発が異変があるようです。しかしながら2011年以降、妙に集中豪雨や降雹が多くなっている気がします。今日の風向きが関係なくとも首都圏上空に汚染物質が溜まっているでしょうし、こちらの方によれば日本上空に見られる不思議な色をした雲は放射性物質や化学物質と関係があるかもしれないとのことです。何らかの物質が溜まってる場所に光の屈折や反射が関係してるかもしれませんが。 >

深刻な身体症状が出ています やはり本格化です


@ 建設現場で職人が急にぐったりしたので熱中症を疑い、救急車を呼んで病院へ搬送。血糖値が上がっていたが、原因不明で入院になったと。

A やはり建設関係の職人、突然目の前が真っ暗になった。


B 友人の友人、法曹関係者、肺がんが脳に転移。ここ数ヶ月の間に入院、治療を続けていると。放射線治療らしい。



私の事ですが、今年になって、朝食に炭水化物や糖質(米など)が 食べられなくなってしまいました。朝に米や砂糖入りのコーヒーを摂取すると その後に強い眠気や、強いだるさに襲われるので。


糖尿病では無いのですが、血糖値を急激に上げる食品は気をつけないと 危ないなぁと、最近気をつけて過ごしています。

昼・夕食は、麺類や米を食べても、まあ大丈夫ですが、だるさが出るので 炭水化物は少しにして、一緒にサラダを食べるようにして対策しています。 (血糖値スパイクとか言うらしいです) http://www.dm-net.co.jp/trend/oshiete/001.php

炭水化物の食品に弱くなったのも、被曝の影響もあるかな・・・と 考えています。


コメント主にお尋ねしたいのですが、太っておられます? 私もそのうち、糖質を食べてダウンかもしれませんね。
