Egyptian parliament calls for Syria’s return to Arab League

The Committee of Arab Affairs at the Egyptian parliament called on the Syrian Arab Republic to restore its seat at the Arab League, describing the current situation as totally ‘unacceptable’.

The Committee states that the strategic ties and mutual struggle shared by both countries make it necessary to positively intervene in the Syrian case.

On the recently-held peace talks in Astana between the Syrian government and opposition, the CAF underlined the need to maintain the country’s institution, unity and sovereignty.

It also put a special emphasis on the fact that only Syrians have the right to decide the future of their country and form of government through democratic and free elections, taking into account the public interest of the country, expressing concerns about what it called ‘attempts to obliterate the Arabic and Islamic character of Syria through the draft constitution laid down by Russia.

عودة دمشق أم عودة العروبة للجامعة!؟

فبراير 3, 2017

سعد الله الخليل

لم تأتِ الدعوة الروسيّة إلى تجديد عضويّة سورية في جامعة الدول العربيّة، وعلى لسان رأس الدبلوماسيّة الروسية سيرغي لافروف، من فراغ أو مجرد استثمار لمناسبة عابرة تتمثّل بِاختتام اجتماع منتدى التعاون الروسي العربي في موسكو، إنّما تستند إلى مقوّمات سياسيّة وميدانيّة فرضتها ظروف الحرب على سورية بسنواتها الست العِجاف من جهة، والرؤية السياسيّة الدبلوماسيّة الروسيّة من جهةٍ أخرى.

تُدرك موسكو أنّ جزءاً كبيراً من الحرب التي شُنّت على سورية نتيجة لتمسّكها بالقضايا القوميّة، ولوقوفها في وجه مشاريع الغرب للسيطرة على القرار العربي، وأنّ إخراجها من منظومة الجامعة العربية كان في سياق مشروع مخطّط له لشنّ تدخّل عسكريّ ضدّ سورية، عبر نقل الملف السوري إلى مجلس الأمن، وهو ما أضرّ بالجهود الصادقة لحلّ الأزمة السوريّة منذ بدايتها كما أضرّ بمنظومة الجامعة، وبطبيعة الحال لم يُخرج دمشق من عروبتها. وبالتالي، فإنّ السّعي الروسي يأتي لضمان انسيابيّة الحلول السياسيّة للأزمة السوريّة، ضمن مسارات المؤسسات الرسميّة ولو شكلياً، كونها تُدرك عجز الجامعة عن الخروج من المنظومة الغربيّة وتحالفاتها في الحرب على سورية، وبالتالي لن تكون مُنصفة بحقّ دمشق في قادمات الأيام بما ينسجم مع تاريخها القريب في التعاطي مع الأحداث. وتُضاف إلى دوافع موسكو، رؤيتها للسياسة الدوليّة القائمة على احترام الشرعيّة الدوليّة وسلطة القانون الدوليّ، وهو ما يدفعها للسّعي لإعادة الأمور إلى نصاب المؤسسات والمنظمات، والجامعة العربية إحدى تلك المؤسسات بطبيعة الحال…

أمّا في توقيت الدعوة، فيبدو أنّها رغبة روسيّة إضافيّة في التأكيد على موقف موسكو على احترام عروبة سورية، خصوصاً بعد ما رُوّج عن مسوّدة الدستور السوريّ والتي وزّعتها موسكو على الأطراف السوريّة في لقاء أستانة، بأنّها تُسقط عروبة سورية كون المسوّدة وصفت سورية بالجمهورية السوريّة وغابت كلمة العربيّة عنها. وبالتالي، فإنّ الدعوة الروسية تُنهي اللغط الدائر حول المسوّدة، وتضع الكرة في ملعب الجامعة لإدراك موسكو بأنّ أيّ دور للجامعة لا يمكن أن يتمّ من دون عودة سورية إليها، ويبدو من ردّ الأمين العام للجامعة أحمد أبو الغيط، أنّ الجامعة ستطبّق أيّ قرار يتمّ الاتفاق عليه في الاجتماعات الوزاريّة أو اجتماعات الأمانة العامّة، ما لا يغلق الأبواب على تلك الدعوى بما يبقيها مشرّعة لنقاش الخطوة من دون أن تحبط الرؤوس الحامية التي أخرجت سورية من الجامعة، لتأتي كلمة سرّ العودة من بوابة الإجماع العربي.

في الدخول لحيثيّات وتفاصيل الخطوة، فإنّ الدعوة لعودة سورية إلى الجامعة العربيّة تحمل دلالات عدّة، خصوصاً إذا ما بحثنا في ماهيّة الجامعة ودورها في تسعير الحرب على سورية، لتغدو الخطوة بداية هزيمة لمخطّط إسقاط سورية، وانتصاراً لدمشق التي فرضت بصمودها تغيير المعادلات الإقليميّة والدوليّة. وبالتالي، فإنّ العودة في حال تمّت، ليست منّة، بل استحقاق واعتراف بسقوط المشروع القطريّ السعوديّ التركي بالهيمنة على العالم العربيّ من بوابة البترودولار، كمنصّة لتنفيذ الأجندات الغربيّة والتي كرّست عمالة الأنظمة العربية لقوى الإمبرياليّة. وبناءً على التحالفات السوريّة خلال سنوات الأزمة، فإنّ العودة السوريّة لن تضيف أيّ مكسب سياسيّ لدمشق في منطق المصالح وحسابات الربح والخسارة، فمن يقف في محور موسكو وطهران ودول بحجم دول بريكس وشنغهاي، ليس بحاجة للسّعي إلى العودة لمنظّمة شبه ميتة كالجامعة العربيّة…

الموقف السوري لم ولن يكون في هذا الوارد، بل سيجعل من العودة السوريّة إلى الجامعة خياراً لا بُدّ منه لمواجهة ومحاسبة من ساهم في الحرب على سورية، وكمنطلق لتفكيك المعسكر المعادي لسورية في السياسة كما فكّكته عسكريّاً، وأسقطت كلّ مشاريع الاستحواذ بالمنطقة انطلاقاً من بوابة إسقاط سورية.

بين خيارات العروبة والعرب والعربان، ترجح كفّة العروبة في التفكير الجمعي لكلّ المكوّنات السورية شعباً وقيادة، وبالتالي لن تسمح سورية لأيّ من خصومها بالاستفراد بالجامعة العربية وجعل دورها شرعنة التدخّل الأجنبي والعسكري في الدول العربيّة المستقرة، ما يجعل من العودة أمر غير مستبعد ويدخل في حسابات الدولة السوريّة.

تُدرك سورية والجامعة العربيّة أنّ عودة سورية إلى صفوف الجامعة، يخدم الجامعة أكثر ممّا يخدم سورية، ويُعيد إليها عروبتها المفقودة بغياب سورية عن اجتماعاتها ومؤسّساتها.

Comparisons that reveal the magnitude of change in Syria مقارنات تكشف حجم التغيير في سورية

Written by Nasser Kandil,

Since the beginning of the international and regional efforts for a political solution in Syria, the magnitude of the roles of the regional and the international allies of the Syrian two opposite teams, the country, and the formations of the political and the military opposition groups reflect the outcome of the field balances of powers between these two teams on one hand, and the ruling balances of the international and regional equations and its variables on the other hand. At the beginning of the efforts was Geneva Statement in 2012 where Iran was absent, or more exactly it was excluded, while the presence of the hostile allies to Syrian country was dominant, until almost the presence of Russia and China was insignificant among this hostile crowd. This meeting which was held on May 20, 2012 has included each of the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the Secretary-General of the Arab League, in addition to the Foreign Ministers of the Soviet Union, Turkey, China, France, Qatar ( the Chairman of the Arab League to follow up the situation in Syria), Iraq ( the Chairman of the summit conference of the Arab League ), Kuwait ( the Head of the Foreign Ministers Council of the Arab League), the United Kingdom, the Northern Ireland, United States, and the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and the Security policy) as working group for Syria led by the Common Special Envoy of the United Nations and the Arab League for Syria, the ratio of the friends of Syria to its opponents is three of thirteen, it means less than a quarter. The absence of Iran was not inadvertently, but it was a political decision.

At the meeting which was held after four years and a half on 20 December 2016 in Moscow and has included the Foreign and the Defense Ministers of Russia, Turkey, and Iran and which ended with a document for a political solution. The ratio of the friends of Syria comparing with its opponent is two-thirds; the absence of Saudi Arabia was not inadvertently, but it was a political decision.

In the negotiations of Geneva which the preparation for them was at the end of 2013 and which have been held in early of 2014 which mean exactly two years ago, the United Nations has sent an invitation to Iran after vigorous Russian interferences to participate in the opening session of the conference, then the Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon has withdrawn it. The Foreign Minister of Russia does not have but the objection and to accept the fait accompli to participate despite that provocation. It was issued a Saudi public statement to exclude Iran. On  January 20, 2014 the Saudi authorities announced that they refused the participation of Iran in “Geneva Conference-2-” which aimed to discuss the Syrian crisis, because Tehran has refused the item of forming a transitional government, because it has affiliated forces that fight with the Syrian regime. The official News Agency has reported the saying of an official source” the public approval on the invitation terms is by announcing officially and publically the acceptance of the terms, at their forefront forming a transitional government for the authorities, while Iran did not announce that position, so it was not qualified to attend, especially, because it has military forces that fight side by side with the forces of the regime.

In the preparation for the negotiations of Astana, Russia and Turkey have announced the desire to include new participants to sponsor the political process, among the concerned is Saudi Arabia. Iran refused the participation of Saudi Arabia, and has announced at the spokesman of its Defense Minister on December 28, 2016 that Saudi Arabia is not allowed to participate in the Peace Process in the Syrian Republic. The Russian media agency has reported on Tuesday that the statements of Dehghan have been issued during an interview with (Russia Today) the Russian TV Channel, It was reported that Dehghan said that the insistence of Saudi Arabia on the resignation of the President Bashar Al-Assad means that Riyadh must not participate in the Syrian future peace talks.

A year ago, when the Russian President Vladimir announced that he sent his troops to Syria to drop the slogan of overthrowing the regime and to impose an equation its basis is the priority of the war on terrorism, as well as a Syrian Syrian political solution through which the Syrians resort to the ballot boxes, many has mocked at his words.

Now after a year of his words the President Putin ratified on the first serious agreement to cease-fire and to start the political track among the important factions which are sponsored by Turkey in the fighting field. The Syrian government excludes ISIS and Al Nusra front, while Washington is absent from the scene, its President Barack Obama is preparing himself to depart after he defined several and repetitive deadlines for the departure of the Syrian President, he has warned Moscow repeatedly from the failure which it will reap because of its involvement in the Syrian war. The new President is preparing himself to assume power. He says that his priority is the cooperation with the Russian President, and that the issue of overthrowing the regime and toppling the Syrian President is not an issue that concerns the Americans, wondering why not to cooperate with him as long as our priority is fighting the terrorism and he is fighting the terrorism.

مقارنات تكشف حجم التغيير في سورية

ناصر قنديل

– منذ بدأت المساعي الدولية والإقليمية لحلّ سياسي في سورية كانت أحجام أدوار الحلفاء الإقليميين والدوليين للفريقين السوريين المتقابلين، الدولة وتشكيلات الجماعات المعارضة السياسية والعسكرية، تعكس حاصل موازين القوى الميدانية بين هذين الفريقين من جهة، والموازين الحاكمة للمعادلات الدولية والإقليمية ومتغيّراتها. ففي بداية المساعي كان بيان جنيف قي عام 2012، وقد كانت إيران غائبة عنه، والأصحّ  مغيّبة، وكان حلفاء الجماعات المعادية للدولة السورية طاغية على الحضور، حتى يكاد يبدو حضور روسيا والصين هزيلاً وسط هذا الحشد المعادي، فقد ضمّ الاجتماع الذي عقد في 20 أيار 2012 كلاً من الأمين العام للأمم المتحدة والأمين العام لجامعة الدول العربية ووزراء خارجية الاتحاد الروسي وتركيا والصين وفرنسا وقطر رئيسة لجنة جامعة الدول العربية لمتابعة الوضع في سورية والعراق رئيس مؤتمر قمة جامعة الدول العربية والكويت رئيسة مجلس وزراء الخارجية التابع لجامعة الدول العربية والمملكة المتحدة وإيرلندا الشمالية والولايات المتحدة وممثلة الاتحاد الأوروبي السامية للشؤون الخارجية والسياسة الأمنية، بوصفهم مجموعة العمل من أجل سورية، برئاسة المبعوث الخاص المشترك للأمم المتحدة وجامعة الدول العربية لسورية، ونسبة الأصدقاء للدولة السورية من خصومها هنا هي ثلاثة من ثلاثة عشر أيّ أقلّ من الربع، ولم يكن غياب إيران سهواً بل قرار سياسي.

– في الاجتماع الذي عُقد بعد أربع سنوات ونصف في 20 كانون الأول 2016 في موسكو وضمّ وزراء الخارجية والدفاع في روسيا وتركيا وإيران والذي انتهى بوثيقة للحلّ السياسي، وحلّ بذلك مكان اجتماع جنيف النسبة لأصدقاء الدولة السورية قياساً بخصومها هي الثلثان، ولم يكن الغياب السعودي سهواً بل قرار سياسي.

– في مفاوضات جنيف التي بدأ التمهيد لها نهاية 2013 وعقدت مطلع العام 2014 أيّ قبل سنتين تماماً، وجهت الأمم المتحدة بعد مداخلات روسية حثيثة بطاقة دعوة إلى إيران، للمشاركة في الجلسة الافتتاحية للمؤتمر لم يلبث أن سحبها الأمين العام بان كي مون، ولم يكن بيد وزير خارجية روسيا سوى الاعتراض وقبول الأمر الواقع بالمشاركة، رغم هذا الاستفزاز، وصدر بيان سعودي علني يدعو لاستبعاد إيران. ففي 20 كانون الثاني 2014 أعلنت السلطات السعودية أنها ترفض مشاركة إيران في مؤتمر «جنيف – 2» الهادف لبحث الأزمة السورية بسبب رفض طهران شرط تشكيل حكومة انتقالية ولوجود «قوات تابعة لها تحارب مع النظام السوري»». ونقلت وكالة الأنباء الرسمية عن مصدر مسؤول قوله إنّ «الموافقة العلنية على شروط الدعوة هو أن يعلن رسمياً وعلنياً عن قبول الشروط وأولها إنشاء حكومة انتقالية للسلطات، أما إيران فلم تعلن عن هذا الموقف مما لا يؤهّلها للحضور خاصة أنّ لها قوات عسكرية تحارب جنباً إلى جنب مع قوات النظام».

– في التمهيد لمفاوضات أستانة أعلنت روسيا وتركيا الرغبة بضمّ مشاركين جدد لرعاية المسار السياسي، ومن ضمن المعنيين السعودية، فأعلنت إيران رفض مشاركة السعودية، فأعلنت إيران بلسان وزير دفاعها يوم 28 كانون الأول 2016 أنه يجب عدم السماح بمشاركة السعودية في عملية السلام في الجمهورية السورية، وذكرت وكالة الإعلام الروسية الثلاثاء أنّ تصريحات دهقان جاءت خلال مقابلة مع  قناة «موسكو اليوم» التلفزيونية الروسية. ونقل عن دهقان قوله إنه يعتقد أنّ إصرار السعودية على تنحّي السيد الرئيس بشار الأسد يعني أنه يجب ألا تشارك الرياض في محادثات السلام السورية المستقبلية.

– قبل سنة عندما أعلن الرئيس الروسي فلاديمير بوتين أنه جاء بقواته إلى سورية ليسقط شعار إسقاط النظام، وفرض معادلة قوامها أولوية الحرب على الإرهاب وحلّ سياسي سوري سوري، يحتكم فيه السوريون إلى صناديق الاقتراع، سخر الكثيرون من كلامه. وها هو الرئيس بوتين بعد سنة من كلامه، يصادق على أول اتفاقية جدية لوقف النار وبدء مسار سياسي بين الفصائل الوازنة في ميدان القتال التي ترعاها تركيا، والحكومة السورية، تستثني تنظيم داعش وجبهة النصرة، بينما تغيب واشنطن عن المشهد، ويستعدّ رئيسها باراك أوباما للرحيل بعدما حدّد مواعيد متعدّدة ومتكرّرة لرحيل الرئيس السوري، وحذر موسكو مراراً من الفشل الذي ستحصد ثماره بسبب تدخلها في الحرب السورية. ويستعدّ الرئيس الجديد  لتسلّم السلطة وهو يقول إنّ أولويته هي التعاون مع الرئيس الروسي وإنّ قضية تغيير النظام وإسقاط الرئيس السوري ليست قضية تهمّ الأميركيين، متسائلاً: لماذا لا نتعاون معه طالما أولويتنا قتال الإرهاب وهو يقاتل الإرهاب؟

Saudi Airstrike on Yemen School Kills 10 Children, Wounds Dozens

Saudi Airstrike on Yemen School Kills 10 Children, Wounds Dozens

19 Killed Overall, All Civilians, In Attack on Village

Saudi warplanes are adding to the ever-growing number of incidents of attacks on civilians fueling international disquiet this weekend, attacking a village in the northern Saada Province and killing 19 civilians, most of them children.

The majority of the casualties in the village came in the attack on a school, which killed 10 children and wounded 21 others, according to Doctors Without Borders. The other attacks hit houses in the surrounding area, including the home of the school’s principal, a strike which killed his wife and four children.

Saudi officials confirmed the attack, but insisted that the school was secretly an Iranian-backed training camp for child soldiers. They insisted there are no schools of any type anywhere in the district, and that the Doctors Without Borders confirmation that they killed mostly small children “confirms the Houthis practice of recruiting and subjecting children to terror.”

While the Saudi claims about the school are preposterous and readily disproven, the Saudi comments defending their attack amount to an admission that they deliberately targeted a site full of children which they themselves believed to be full of children. This would doubtless get added to the annual UN report of war crimes against children from 2016, assuming the Saudis don’t manage to weasel their way out like they did this year.

OBAMA’S HEROES BURN FAMILY ALIVE TRYING TO ESCAPE KIRKUK! SYRIAN ARMY CONTINUES ITS ONSLAUGHT IN DER’AH AS ARMY EVAPORATES TERRORISTS IN HAMA; TERRORIST DEFENSES COLLAPSING IN ALEPPO

Ziad Fadel

This is Obama’s, Robert Ford’s, Hillary Clinton’s and David Cameron’s most beautiful dream: watching Iraqi civilians being burned alive as sacrifice to the glory of Obama’s  Oreo Cookie God.  This family, a father, mother and 2 year old girl, were placed in a cage, just like that Jordanian pilot (Mu’aadh Al-Kassaasiba) who was shot down by American jets because he was getting too close to American SF agents assisting ISIS, and burned to death because they were trying to escape the lunacy of the world’s only purely sociopathic criminal enterprise, the Islamic State of Deviance.  They were from Rashaad Village, a tiny hamlet held by the ravenous rodents to whom Obama and his ilk spill their seed each day in reverence to the Caliph of Cockadoodledoo.

ONLY THE SYRIAN ARMY AND ITS ALLIES ARE REALLY FIGHTING THESE TURK-INSPIRED VULTURES.  IF ONLY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE REALLY KNEW WHAT THAT CRIMINAL IN THE WHITE HOUSE WAS REALLY DOING.

DER’AH:  It appears SyrPer was right about the King of Jordan.  He’s lost his appetite for confrontation in Syria.  The attempted coup in Turkey has dissuaded him from attending the guffaw-inducing Arab League Summit in Nouakchott,  Mauretania.  Even the Moroccans refused to hold it in Rabat.  To many pundits in the Arab World, it is nothing more than the “Worthless Summit”  (القمة بلا قيمة).  The half-breed Limey-arse-licking king is not as cooperative as before in permitting American-trained trash to cross the border into Syria.  He’s also got wind of the fact that the Saudis aren’t worth quite as much today as they were 5 years ago.  He’s hedging his bets now and preparing for his own showdown with Justice as more of his subjects begin to wonder how in the Hell this dwarf ever sat on a throne like this in the middle of the Syrian Desert.

 

Yesterday, July 24, 2016, 6 new villages have joined the Reconciliation Initiative led by Dr. ‘Ali Haydar, appointed by Dr. Assad as Minister of Reconciliation, and have vowed not to assist any rodent terrorists bent on destroying their country.  There are now 206 villages who are members of this grouping inside Der’ah Province.

Today, at Al-Yaadoodaa, the SAA destroyed 3 HQ bases belonging to Nusra/Alqaeda.  In one operation alone, SAA rangers came upon a Nusra/Alqaeda rocket launcher operated by 4 rodents and killed them all after firing a Kornet at the launcher.

 

Der’ah Town:  On the Dam Road,  the SAA-MI was monitoring the movement of Nusra/Alqaeda vermin.  They reported the event to the SAA which immediately deployed a special operations unit to the area.  After sending out some sounds which attracted the rats (Monzer does not know the specifics), they opened fire killing 8 rodents.  Here are the names of the only identifiable rodents among the carcasses:

Muhammad Tareef Shoomaan

THEY MAY CEASE TO EXIST BY TOMORROW.

The Half-day Summit and its Pre-determined Decisions

Talal Salman

A few Arab leaders, along with a number of ministers who will represent the many (leaders) who will be absent, will meet in “the tent” of Nouakchott, the capital of Mauritania, on the boundary between “Arabs” and “Africans” on the Atlantic Ocean, for the 27th Arab summit. The summit will not take as much time as it took their royal planes to arrive to that forgotten Arab country, in light of its poverty, military rule, and the (presence) of Arab ‘nahda’ parties (Nasserists, Baathists, Communists…) as permanent opposition.

Arab flags

Surely some of those that will attend from the countries of the east (Iraq, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf sheikhdoms, in the absence of Umayyad Syria) will scramble to emphasise (to the people of Mauritania) the blood ties that gathered them together in this forgotten Arab state in the heart of the desert of poverty. (People) who see themselves as coming from Bani Hassan, and the tribes of Maktal which moved to (Mauritania) with the Helalis and Bani Salim during the days of the Fatimid caliphate…

In contrast, some Arab officials will recall that Mauritania is a country of military coups, making up most of its independence history (since late 1960), a fact which is recognised by its “big neighbour” Morocco…yet it did not enter the Arab League until 1973, and then the military coups followed one after the other following the overthrow of its first president, Mokhtar Ould Daddah, who renewed his mandate four times from his position as the leader of the “People’s Party”.

And because Arabs may have become “two groups” or various countries of common identity, basically, and with contrasting policies causing a war between them, practically, they would not care much about (its) internal situations during its own history which has witnessed several military coups, through which the current president has reached power.

In any case, few Arab kings, princes, and presidents will participate in this summit, from which Morocco had “escaped” and offered as a royal gift to this poor country, that was forced to set up a big tent for the “Arab leaders” to meet in. These Arab leaders have refused to lodge in it, so their aircraft engines will remain operating until the completion of the recitation of the final statement. And this will be in any case a repetition of previous summits, Arabic and Islamic, with the addition of golden sentences condemning “Hizbullah” as a terrorist organization (or at least, its military organization, as if there were a difference between civilians and the mujahidin in it).

It does not require a lot of explanation and justification to “convince” the leader of Mauritania, the poor and forgotten country at the end of Arab lands, to join the sectarian camp. The majority of the royals will be present, and the republican minority will never use its veto power. Perhaps the positions of Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon and Tunisia stood out in their objections.

There is no room now to recall history, and to shed the light on the fact that the Mauritanians (who were some Arabs) may have contributed to the liberation of Andalusia, and their country’s name includes the word “Mort”, that took the meaning in western culture – particularly French – of “enemy” due to their role in Andalusia.

In any case, Arab republics will have a faint attendance at this summit. Kings and princes will occupy its forefront. This summit will take place in the absolute poorest Arab country, in which “Israel” was able to bury some of its atomic waste in its vast desert in 1996.

It goes without saying that the new summit does not belong to the history of the Arab conquests, but perhaps an extension of the decline of active Arab presence, and the lack of attempts to re-unify Arab ranks in the face of threats to Arabs in their existence as a nation…in addition to the absence of Syria by (royal) order, and the absence of Libya, which has more than one government. Iraq will attend, (a country) busy with its fateful and grave problems which threaten to do away with its state, nationalism, and identity. The Prime Minister of Lebanon will attend, (a country) that has no president. Some (Lebanese) ministers (directly concerned with the summit) have apologised and will not attend, without giving any convincing reasons.

Egypt will continue to fail in restoring its leadership role, which was (part of the role it played included directing the annual Arab summit towards being mainly about confronting the “Israeli” project) related to bringing together (the summit’s) states due to never-ending differences between their leaders.

It is the half-day summit, in a state lost between a limitless desert and the Atlantic Ocean which links continents together, but which is too narrow to accommodate Arab-Arab differences, and differences between Arab countries whose destinies are almost all threatened.

But it might inspire Mauritanians, most of which are poets, to write a new stanza about the Arab summits of concessions at the expense of Palestine, (summits) which remain too weak to put an end to their differences, which are tied to various reasons and excuses…rather, it may exacerbate the danger to all of their fates.
