imposed a state of emergency earlier in the week as rioting spread to more
towns, including Calais, the French end of the "Chunnel" rail link to
England; St. Raphael; Amiens; Grasses; Bassens; Savigny-sur-Orge, and Arras.
Other cases of arson were reported throughout Belgium--in Ghent, Antwerp,
Lokeren--and in Germany, where Cologne was hit for the first time with car
The intensity of French rioting subsided Wednesday night but
not before arson spread to the Basque region of France. Four parked buses and a
police station in Bayonne were firebombed.
In further evidence that the attacks in France are
well-coordinated with a view to ensuring that all parts of France were touched
by the rioting, arson and other attacks were not only reported in the Basque
region but also in Le Havre in Normandy, Belfort and Saint-Quentin, Grenoble in
the Alps region, and Brest in Brittany.
Meanwhile, French neocon Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy
is withstanding pressure for him to resign. Progressive political parties and
human rights organizations cite Sarkozy's inflammatory rhetoric as increasing
the violence. The imposition of curfews nationwide are believed to have been
successful in quelling the arson and rioting. However, one question remains.
Sarkozy could have imposed curfews much earlier. Instead, he called Maghrebian
and African youth scum and riff-raff, saying they should be
"Karcherized" (pressurized water hosed). [Note: Karcher is a German
firm. Its founder, Wurttemberg native Alfred Karcher, sold 1200 "hardened
furnaces" for smelting alloys until 1945, including during World War II.
It now manufactures multi-purpose nuclear, biological, and chemical
decontamination systems for the Pentagon.]
Sarkozy delayed imposing curfews, permitting rioting to
spread to 300 French cities, towns, and villages. It would be very interesting
to see transcripts from signals intelligence agencies of Sarkozy's
international phone conversations after the electrocution of two teens in a
north Paris suburb.
WMR has emphasized that the arson attacks are well planned,
coordinated, and only plaguing the three major NATO countries that opposed the
war in Iraq, For that reason, European law enforcement and intelligence
agencies should place 24x7 surveillance on Israeli diplomatic and intelligence
personnel who may be engaged in "Lavon Affair" and "911"
style false flag operations. Such an operation aimed at Venezuela's President
Hugo Chavez may have just been uncovered in Trinidad and Tobago.
In what may have been an attempt to stage a set of bombings
in the Caribbean oil region and point the finger at Venezuela's significant
Arab and Muslim population, a Russian-born Israeli national was recently
arrested in Port of Spain, Trinidad.
Vatang Agrunov (who uses the aliases Bhatang Agranouve and
Dahtang Mik Agarunov), 26, is being questioned by Trinidadian authorities for
his connections to four bombings in Port of Spain this year--on July 11 on busy
Frederick Street (injuring 14 people, two seriously, one woman losing her leg),
August 10 on busy George Street, September 10, and November 3. As was the case
with Israeli "art students" and "movers" who have been
detained in the United States and Canada, Agrunov played dumb, first claiming
he did not steal an immigration extension stamp that could be illegally used to
grant visa extensions in Trinidad. According to the Trinidad and Tobago Express, in
typical broken English and proffering a sob story, Agrunov told police, "I
just want to say I take the stamp and finish this story. I don't want to stay
in this country any longer. I want to go home. I just want to finish this and
go back to my country because my family does not know what happened to
Agrunov had used the immigration stamp to extend his own
stay in the country. Caribbean authorities have intelligence that Agrunov is a

Attacks in Venezuela?
Trinidad and Tobago authorities, including the Trinidad
Anti-Crime Unit, the Criminal Investigation Division, and the local Interpol
representative, are awaiting an Interpol report on Agrunov. Port of Spain
Magistrate Maureen Baboolal-Gafoor denied Agrunov bail, citing him as a flight
Israeli agents have been arrested in New Zealand and
Australia on charges that they were involved in the theft of New Zealand
passports. As typical in such cases, the Israeli government denied any
knowledge of the Trinidad affair. The Israeli embassy in Caracas, which has
responsibility for Israeli affairs in Trinidad, said it had no information on
The unfettered use of a Trinidad visa stamp by an Israeli
false flag cell would have permitted Israeli agents to secretly enter and exit
Venezuela via nearby Trinidad, which is only 7 miles away--an excellent cover
for committing terrorist attacks on tourist centers or oil installations in
either Venezuela or Trinidad--and blaming them on "Al Qaeda" or Arabs
and Muslims living in the area. The previous bombings in Trinidad were at first
blamed on local Muslim activists. Israel's Foreign Ministry is labeling as
"strange" the reaction of Trinidadian authorities to the presence of
a suspected Israeli terrorist in their nation.
There is also evidence that the FBI arrived in Trinidad
after the July blast to cover up for the Israelis. Local police complained that
the FBI presence was not required and Prime Minister Patrick Manning said he
was unaware that anyone had requested help from the FBI at the time. In cases
where local police and federal agents detained Israeli agents snooping around
sensitive industrial and military facilities in the United States, the FBI
quickly had them transferred to their control whereupon they were hurriedly
deported from the United States. In some cases, deported Israelis have returned
to the United States.
