GENEVA — The United Nations said on Tuesday that it was suspending plans for a cholera vaccination campaign in Yemen — reversing a decision made a month ago — because the disease’s rampant spread and the ravages of war there would make such an effort ineffective.
Jamie McGoldrick, the United Nations aid coordinator in Yemen, said plans for preventive vaccination were being “set aside.” He attributed the change to obstacles in delivering vaccines in the middle of a conflict that has crippled the country’s health system and hampered access to some areas threatened by the contagious disease.
Christian Lindmeier, a spokesman for the World Health Organization, told reporters the vaccine doses originally designated for shipment to Yemen would probably be sent to other countries threatened by cholera, where they could be used more effectively.
The surprise disclosure, made at a regular news briefing at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva, came as the number of Yemenis afflicted with cholera reached 313,000 and the death toll exceeded 1,700.
Aid groups say the outbreak, which began this spring, has deepened a humanitarian crisis caused by a civil war that has raged for more than two years between a Saudi-led military coalition and Houthi insurgents backed by Iran, Saudi Arabia’s regional rival.
Cholera, a highly contagious malady spread by water contaminated with human waste, can cause fatal dehydration if left untreated.
A vaccination effort in Yemen, Mr. Lindmeier said, is a “difficult approach because you can’t plan a campaign like you would do in a normal country” where war and insecurity are absent.
The war has killed about 10,000 people and created the risk of a widespread famine in Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest country. Nearly three million people are acutely malnourished and nearly 10 million are in need of urgent humanitarian support, Mr. McGoldrick said.
“Cholera is today’s crisis, famine is tomorrow’s crisis,” Mr. McGoldrick said.
International aid organizations struggling to cope with a severe shortage of funds as well as the conditions of conflict around the country are now diverting resources from nutrition programs to help curb cholera.
“All of this is entirely man-made — this is a result of the conflict,” Mr. McGoldrick added, urging countries that are supporting the antagonists with arms deliveries to exert more influence.
The World Health Organization’s new director general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus of Ethiopia, was scheduled to brief the United Nations Security Council on the situation in Yemen via a videoconference on Wednesday.

On July 9, Rwandan “President” Paul Kagame arrived in Israel for another of his many visits to reinforce the longstanding pact between his military dictatorship and Israel’s brutal settler colonial regime. This time Kagame enjoyed an unusual honor not even afforded to President Trump when he visited Israel in May; Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin both showed up to greet him upon arrival. The Jerusalem Post suggested that the special welcome had to do with Rwanda’s seat on the UN Human Rights Council—seriously. President Rivlin appeared to confirm this in his remarks:
“Rwanda is now going to be a member of the UN Human Rights Council. This is a body which is always against Israel, unfortunately. So we welcome all those, all those who are prepared to speak for us. And we appreciate your support very much.”
Kagame’s totalitarian regime is infamous for human rights abuse inside Rwanda, including the murder and imprisonment of journalists and political opponents, and the imprisonment of Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, who dared to challenge him for the presidency in 2010. It’s also infamous for crimes in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), as confirmed in the UN’s own UN Mapping Report on Human Rights Abuse in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, 2003 to 2010, which says that the Rwandan army’s massacre of hundreds of thousands of Hutu refugees would be charged as genocide if brought to court. Kagame’s powerful friends have of course made sure that’s never happened; as Bill Clintonsays, “It hasn’t been adjudicated.”
The UN Panel of Experts on the Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources and Other Forms of Wealth in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in their 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2008 reports, documented Rwanda’s invasion and plunder of Congo. The 2012 UN Panel of Experts report identified Rwandan Defense Minister James Kabarebe as the top commander of the M23 militia then ravaging the native populations of eastern Congo.
So, after all these damning UN reports, how could Rwanda have been elected to the UN Human Rights Council? How could it now be pledging to use its seat in defense of Israel?
That wasn’t difficult at all, and no more fraught with contradiction than other elections to UN officialdom. In 2014, the UN General Assembly’s Special Political and Decolonization Committee elected Israel’s representative Mordehai Amihai to serve as its vice chair. The Jerusalem Post actually managed to expand on that Orwellian illogic by calling it “an island of relative normality in the raging sea of injustice and outright absurdity that characterizes the UN’s workings.”
Also in 2014, the General Assembly elected Ugandan Foreign Minister Sam Kutesa to serve as its president for the next year, even though the UN Charter criminalizes wars of aggression against sovereign member nations, and Uganda has invaded three of them—Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and South Sudan—over the past 27 years, leaving millions dead. No matter how many human rights abuses, wars of aggression, and mass atrocities member nations may have to their names, they move into UN positions of moral authority when it’s deemed to be their turn.
The UN Human Rights Council, where Rwanda has pledged to defend its friend Israel, is a human rights abusers council as much as not. Its 47 members include Bangladesh, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, the Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom of Great Britain, and the United States of America, to name a few. The General Assembly elects its members to three-year terms through direct and secret ballot. Votes are putatively based on “the candidate States’ contribution to the promotion and protection of human rights, as well as their voluntary pledges and commitments in this regard.” They are in fact the result of politicking, vote trading, and slates in the five geographical groups represented: Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia Pacific, Western Europe and Other [Western] States, and Eastern Europe. The African nations simply rotate off and on, so that none are ever singled out as unfit to serve.
The Council has nevertheless managed to make Israel cry persecution and call on Rwanda to come to the rescue. In March of this year alone, it passed five resolutions censuring Israel—with the United States and Togo joining to vote against all five. According to AIPAC,
“the UN Human Rights Council has passed 67 resolutions condemning the Jewish state since its inception in 2006, more than it has levied against all other countries combined.”
Who could be better suited to the task of standing up to such injustice than Rwanda, Israel’s perpetual partner in persecution? Upon Kagame’s arrival this week, Netanyahu repeated the “never again” pledge at the root of the Israel/Rwanda pact and the US/NATO ideology of humanitarian military “intervention”:
“We have pledged, I think, both our peoples, one simple pledge. Never again. Never again. We who witnessed the greatest holocaust in history, you who witnessed perhaps one of the most recent ones. Never again. That’s another great bond between us.”
Kagame, in turn, welcomed Israel’s expansion on the African continent:
“Ever since the Prime Minister’s historic visit to East Africa last year, Israel has continued to follow through on its commitment and objective of scaling up engagement across Africa. This is a very positive trend which can only be welcomed and merits our support. We are looking forward to reinforcing our collaboration with Israel on common challenges of mutual interest.”
Current collaborations include Israel’s security forces training Rwanda’s. By the second day of his visit, Kagame was claiming that he needs Israel’s help to defeat jihadists in Rwanda—a nation that is more than 95 percent Christian—because al-Shabaab might spread south from Somalia, Boko Haram east from Nigeria.
“We need these capacities,” he said, “to prevent that from happening and to deal with it when it happens.”
In fact, Kagame needs a fierce, all-pervasive military police force to control his own people, the majority of whom are Hutus who have been demonized, impoverished, and/or imprisoned by his de facto Tutsi dictatorship, much like Palestinians in their own homeland.

You don’t have to wait until after an infection to fight HIV. A technique known as pre-exposure prophylaxis has you taking preemptive medicine on a regular basis, greatly reducing the chances that HIV will take root in the first place. Needless to say, such a treatment could change the world if done well — and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation wants to make sure that it’s as easy as possible. They’re investing $140 million in an Intarcia Therapeutics program that will develop an under-the-skin pump implant (you’re looking at it above) that will deliver a steady stream of anti-HIV drugs in 6- or 12-month batches. Instead of having to remember to take medicine every day, you’d only have to top up once or twice a year.
There’s also a variant of the pump targeted at type 2 diabetes. Intarcia started the paperwork on commercial use in November, so you could see it in use relatively soon.
Any practical implementation of the HIV pump is years away. Intarcia still has to settle on a drug to use, and there are regulations and similar hurdles to clear before it’s ready to use. If it’s deployed as promised, though, it could go a long way toward reducing the influence of HIV and AIDS in places like sub-Saharan Africa, where the virus remains a serious problem. Like with many medicines, the biggest challenge is simply getting people to take preventative drugs on a consistent basis — this would make it much less of a hassle. Cost is still a concern (will the medicine be inexpensive enough that wide distribution is practical?), but the technology is at least in place.

Sweden is in the grip of a microchipping craze, with Swedes readily parting with their own money to pay for “fashionable” and “convenient” microchips under their skin – without stopping to think of the consequences.
Mainstream media in the US has been waging a propaganda campaign trying to normalize the idea of microchips for humans, airing reports claiming that children will be microchipped “sooner rather than later” and that Americans will accept this because it will make their children “safer.“
But while Americans remain wary about the idea of microchips for humans, the campaign to normalize microchips has been so successful in Sweden that people with RFID microchips permanently embedded in their bodies now consider the technology as “another organ of the body” and boast that they can use them to “pay for train tickets” and “receive discounts“.
The only catch is that these slaves of fashion don’t know exactly what has been put into their body. They also can’t be sure who has access to their personal data. If history repeats, human microchips will go from being technology adopted for its “convenience and safety” and then overnight will become mandatory for you and your family – or else.
A state-owned Swedish train company, SJ, is now offering passengers the option of using RFID chips implanted into their hand instead of a paper or e-ticket, enabling ticket inspectors to scan passengers’ hands. An SJ spokesperson said he expects thousands of people to “take advantage” of the “convenient method“.
“It’s just a matter of days before everyone has it,” he said.
Asked why SJ Trains decided to offer passengers the option of using microchips, he said “Simply because we can. And because our corporate customers demanded it.”
Cyber security nightmare
Explaining that it is “slightly quicker to scan a microchip than a travel card” and thus “saves train crew a bit of time“, the spokesman also admitted to early privacy problems with the new scheme.
“Of course there’s mixed reactions,” says SJ’s spokesperson. “Some people are concerned with the privacy issue and that’s something we take really seriously. We came up with using the membership number which doesn’t tell anyone anything – a third party couldn’t make anything of it even if they got hold of it.
“Some people are confused and think they can be tracked via microchip – but it that’s something they’re worried about, they should be more concerned by their mobile phone and credit card use. You can already be tracked in many different ways other than a microchip.”
Mark of the beast
SJ isn’t the only company in Sweden taking advantage of the RFID microchip trend. Another company, Epicenter, encourages employees to have a microchip implanted in order to access their office or place of work, while a chain of Swedish gyms lets clients use their microchip as an ID card to gain entry to the gym floor.
Microchipped Swedes claim further uses might include children tapping to let parents know they are at school safely, refugees checking in at camps or women at shelters. The microchips can share diet, exercise and sleep information with you and your doctor, and the next generation could even release medicine as and when you need it.
Ben Libberton, a microbiologist from the Swedish think tank and research organization, the Karolinska Institute, said the data that could be accessed from the embedded chip was very different from the data found on a person’s smartphone.
“You could get data about your health, you could [get] data about your whereabouts, how often you’re working, how long you’re working, if you’re taking toilet breaks, and things like that,” he said.
“All of that data could conceivably be collected.”
“So then the questions is: What happens to it afterwards? What is it used for? Who is going to be using it? Who is going to be seeing it?“

Horrifying torture, disembowelling and dismemberment of captives highlighted in ‘Carnage and the Cover-up’ (Renegade Tribune) are not isolated acts of wartime savagery. Methods of inhuman slaughter of millions of Gentiles in Bolshevik Occupied Europe were based on Talmudic teachings to maximise terror and torture.
“Most Jews don’t like to admit it but our god is Lucifer and we are his chosen people.” ~ Harold Wallace Rosenthal.
Murders committed by the Bolsheviks and sadistic Gentile accomplices were carried out in accordance with principles that are inescapably acts of Talmudic ritual murder. Such savageries are occultist sacrificial ceremonies. These teachings stipulate that murders are to be carried out by “inducing the maximum amount of pain and suffering in the victims. During the inconceivable suffering the victim generates immense amounts of energy, which is consumed by the powers of evil, which exist on more subtle levels of existence.”
To properly understand the levels of satanic depravity practiced by Jews once they achieve mastery over Gentiles one is advised to refer to the teachings of the Talmud. The nature of the debaucheries has no equal outside the concept of Lucifer’s teachings. Monstrous ritualistic depravities are historically unique to Bolshevik Occupied Russia.
In Bolshevik Russia the Jewish heads of the dreaded Cheka used barges to mass drown Imperial Russia’s Army officers. (Igor Bunich, The Party’s Gold, St. Petersburg, 1992, p. 73.) The unusually cruel Jewish Chekist Mikhail Kedrov (Zederbaum) drowned 1,092 Russian officers in the White Sea in the spring of 1920. In Crimea the Jews watched and applauded the shocking deaths of thousands of captives from the quays of Sevastopol. The Stalin-backed Republicans during Spain’s Civil War used the same methods. Ships loaded with nationalist prisoners trapped in their holds were sunk much to the satisfaction of their Republican captives. Today, their brethren, from a safe vantage point on hills overlooking Occupied Palestine, applaud the Israeli’s Air Forces incineration of the Palestinian peoples.

Lenin and his accomplices did not arrest just anyone. Wherever the Soviets occupied they martyred those most active in society, the independent thinkers. Vladimir Lenin gave orders to kill as many students as possible in several towns. The Chekists arrested every youth wearing a school cap. These students were liquidated because Lenin believed the coming Russian intellectuals would be a threat to the Soviet regime. (Vladimir Soloukhin, ‘In the Light of Day’, Moscow 1992, p. 40.) The resultant vacuum in the intelligentsia communities was then filled by Jews. Many students, for example in Yaroslavl, learned quickly and hid their school caps. Afterwards, Chekists stopped all suspect youths and searched their hair for the hairline mark of the school cap. If the depression in their hair was seen the youth was killed on the spot.
The author Vladimir Soloukhin revealed that the Chekists were especially interested in handsome boys and pretty girls. These were the first to be killed. It was believed that there would be more intellectuals among attractive people. Attractive youths were therefore killed as a danger to society. The terror was co-ordinated by the Jewish Chekist functionary Joseph Unschlicht. The Jew considers himself elevated on a scale commensurate with the degree of pre-murder suffering inflicted on the victim. This scale defines levels of priority such as priests, army officers, intellectuals and children.
Disembowelling before death was commonly practiced
How did they go about the murders? The Jewish Chekists favoured murder with various torture methods. In his documentary The Russia We Lost, director Stanislav Govorukhin told how the priesthood in Kherson were crucified. The Archbishop Andronnikov of Perm was tortured before death. His eyes were prised out; his ears and nose were cut off. In Kharkov the priest Dmitri was stripped naked. When he tried to make the sign of the cross, a Chekist cut off his right hand. It is no coincidence that in defeated and Soviet Occupied Europe from 1944 the same methods of sadistic pre-death ritual murder were openly encouraged.
Several sources tell how the Chekists in Kharkov placed their victims in a row. Then, having nailed their hands to a table their torturers cut around their wrists with a knife. Boiling water was poured over the skin, which was peeled off. This was called ‘pulling off the glove’. The Soviet occupation of the Baltic States is again proof of orchestrated methods of Talmudic torture practiced before death. Lithuanian refugee Zite Kaulius wrote in The Advocate, Newark, April 1964:
The Germans were angels compared to the Communists. Persecuted Christians came out of hiding. My father who had been arrested was released by the Germans. He came home with his hands raw. The Communists had tortured him by plunging his hands into boiling water until his skin came off like gloves.
Courtyard scene in Kharkov The corpse of I. Ponomarenko. The right hand has been severed and across the chest deep cuts. In the background can be seen a further two corpses.
Kharkov. The corpses of tortured women hostages; the victims were alive when their breasts were severed and simultaneously the victims were disembowelled. Burning embers had been thrust up their vaginas.
In other places, the victim’s head was placed on an anvil and slowly crushed with a steam hammer. Those due to undergo the same punishment the next day were forced to watch. The eyes of church dignitaries were poked out, their tongues were cut off and they were buried alive. There were Chekists who used to cut open the stomachs of their victims, following which they pulled out a length of the small intestine and nailed it to a telegraph pole and, with a whip, forced the unlucky victim to run circles around the pole until the whole intestine had been unravelled and the victim died. The bishop of Voronezh was boiled alive in a large pot, after which the monks, with revolvers aimed at their heads, were forced to drink this soup.
Decapitated corpse with severed leg was discovered in the yard of the KGB in Kherson. The body had been badly burnt.
The corpse of Ilya Sidorenko, owner of a fashion store in the city of Sumy. The victim’s ribs and arms before death had been broken and the genitals crushed and mutilated.
Other Chekists crushed the heads of their victims with special head-screws, or drilled them through with dental tools. The upper part of the skull was sawn off and the nearest in line was forced to eat the brain, following which the procedure would be repeated to the end of the line. Chekists often arrested entire families and tortured the children before the eyes of their parents, and the wives before their husbands. Mikhail Voslensky, a former Soviet functionary, described some of the cruel methods used by the Chekists in his book Nomenklatura / Nomenclature (Stockholm, 1982, p. 321).
The inescapable reality is ~ no matter how much we may shudder and ignore it ~ is that the Jew, wherever he takes control and throughout the ages, kills in ways that are fully in accordance with Talmudic teachings. No Copyright. Republishing or Sharing Invited.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman reminded that among the Forest Brothers were SS soldiers and thousands of civilians were killed in the acts of sabotage they staged
MOSCOW, July 13. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has called to quash NATO’s attempts to falsify history.
On Wednesday, NATO posted a video about the so-called Forest Brothers, or Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian guerrillas fighting against Soviet rule in the three Baltic republics in the 1940-1950s and called them fighters against ‘Soviet invaders.’
“Don’t stay indifferent, it is falsification of history deliberately propagated by NATO in order to revise the results of the Nuremberg Trials. And it must be quashed! If today they say that Bandera is a hero and the Forest Brothers are partisans saving the Baltic republics, what will we have tomorrow?” Zakharova wrote on her Facebook account.
She reminded that among the Forest Brothers were SS soldiers and thousands of civilians were killed in the acts of sabotage they staged. According to Zakharova, this organization was backed by Western security services up till the mid-1950s and NATO is well aware of that. “There are declassified, although slightly edited, CIA files on that matter,” she added.
Lavrov: Attempts to falsify history of WWII undermine foundations of modern world order

World fate cannot be determined by one country, Russian Foreign Minister stressed
MOSCOW, August 23. /TASS/. Attempts to falsify the history of the Second World War offend peoples and undermine the foundations of modern world order, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov wrote in an article titled “Lessons of History and New Milestones” published on Sunday in Russia’s Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily and China’s Renmin Ribao daily.
“The current year goes by under the mark of celebrating the 70th anniversary of ending the Second World War. For Russia and China, this jubilee bears special significance,” Lavrov wrote. “Our countries were allies in fight against Nazism and Japanese militarism, they took the main blow of aggressors, bore the biggest losses,” he continued. “Our peoples managed to withstand that dreadful fight and win thanks to outstanding courage, self-sacrifice and mobilization of all forces,” he said.
“Tens of thousands of Soviet soldiers gave their lives for the freedom and independence of China. We are glad that Beijing carefully cherish the memory of our compatriots,” the foreign minister stressed. One of the best examples of cooperation in the military-memorial sphere is “the first joint search expedition that took place this year in the Heilongjiang province in which the remains of Soviet soldiers were found,” Lavrov said.
“Today, we face undisguised attempts to falsify the history of war, to equal the victims and the executioners,” he noted. “All of this not only offends our peoples, but also undermines the foundations of the modern world order enshrined in the UN Charter,” he explained.
“That is why it is very important that our countries are united in their striving to continue decisively defending the historical truth, to defend the results of the Victory,” Lavrov wrote. In this context, the foreign minister noted, “it is hard to overestimate the importance of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s participation in the anniversary celebrations in Moscow, of the fact that a unit of China’s armed forces was part of the parade on Red Square,” he concluded.
Lessons of Second World War
The lessons of the Second World War are evidence that it is necessary to approach collectively the resolution of international problems, Lavrov continued.
“The spirit of alliance and in general the lessons of Second World War confirm that there is no alternative to collective work in the interests of looking for efficient answers to large-scale threats that the international community is facing, underscore the value of equal mutually respectful partnership which is in fact the only way to prevent new conflict,” Lavrov noted.
The foreign minister stressed that “in today’s uneasy international situation, which is characterized by high level of turbulence and accumulating crises, we should not forget the lessons of the past to avoid irreparable mistakes in the future.” “The fate of the world cannot be determined by one country or a narrow group of countries,” he said.
“Bombardments of Yugoslavia, occupation of Iraq, chaos in Libya, fratricidal war in Ukraine clearly demonstrate what tragic consequences can departure from elementary truth entail – the striving to capture and retain global dominance at any cost, impose one’s opinion, will and values on other countries,” Lavrov concluded.
Russian-Chinese relations at their highest
Relations between Russia and China “are at the highest over their history and continue to develop consistently,” Lavrov stressed.
“Their basis is in feeling of sincere friendship and sympathy between our peoples, deep mutual respect and trust, consideration of key interests of each other, interest in prosperity of our countries,” Lavrov wrote. “In fact, we are talking about inter-state relations of new type, a kind of cooperation model in the 21st century,” he continued.
Lavrov stressed that cooperation between Moscow and Beijing on the international arena has become an important of maintaining international and regional stability.
“Russia and China adhere to equal or close approaches on key modern problems, consistently stand for forming a new polycentric world order with reliance on international law, respect to self-identity of different peoples, their right to choose independently the way of development,” the foreign minister said. “We are resolute opponents of imposing one’s will on sovereign countries, including by military means, of unilateral sanctions pressure, and in general of employing the practice of ‘double standards’,” Lavrov noted.
When you have invested so much time in shaping an image of you being truthful and reliable, you do not want people to know what really happened in WWII.
