Yemeni Naval Forces Target Saudi-led Warship

Yemeni naval forces have reportedly targeted a Saudi military vessel in a missile attack off the coast of Yemen’s southwestern province of Ta’izz.

A military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Arabic-language al-Masirah television network that the warship was targeted with a sophisticated guided-missile in waters near the port city of Mukha, situated 346 kilometers south of the capital Sana’a.

The source added that the vessel had been carrying out acts of aggression within the territorial waters of Yemen.

On January 30, Yemeni army forces, backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees, fired a guided missile at al-Madinah warship in waters near the city of Hudaydah.

The Saudi-led coalition waging war on Yemen later confirmed the incident but claimed only five people had lost lives in the attack.

Yet, footage of the raid, provided by Yemeni forces, showed the enormity of the explosion and subsequent fire on the deck of the Saudi vessel.

On January 21, the Yemeni coast guard warned enemies’ battleships against using the strategic Bab el-Mandeb Strait, which connects the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden, to bomb civilian targets, emphasizing that such a practice poses grave threats to international maritime navigation in the area.

In October 2016, Yemeni forces and Popular Committees fighters destroyed an Emirati HSV-2 Swift hybrid catamaran off the shores of Mukha.

Yemeni army forces had destroyed a Saudi warship in a missile attack in the southwestern coast of Yemen, in Bab el-Mandeb in October 2015.

Saudi Arabia has been incessantly pounding Yemen since March 2015 in an attempt to bring back Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, to power and to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement. The Riyadh regime has, however, failed to reach its goals despite suffering great expense.

The military aggression has reportedly claimed the lives of more than 12,000 people, most of them civilians.

Military Situation In Moсha Area In Western Yemen (Map Update)

25.06.2017

In January 2017,  Saudi-led forces launched the operation “Golden Spear” aiming to capture the entire western Yemeni coast from the Houthi-Saleh alliance.

So far Saudi-led forces have manged to capture the strategic port of Mocha  but failed to advance further to the north. They have repeatedly tried to capture the Khaled military camp but also failed to do this. The Khaled military camp is a strategic military base located on the road between Taiz city and Mocha.

Recently, Houthi-Saleh forces have repelled a Saudi-backed attack in the al Kadha area.

Israeli Minister Calls For Full Saudi Ties And Official Riyadh Visit

Intelligence minister Yisrael Katz has also invited King Salman to send new crown prince to Israel to establish mutual ties

By MEE and agencies

June 23, 2017 “Information Clearing House” – Senior Israeli ministers have called on Saudi Arabia’s King

Salman to establish full diplomatic relations with Israel.

Speaking at the Herzliya conference on Thursday, Israel’s intelligence and transportation minister Yisrael Katz asked King Salman to invite Prime Minister Netanyahu to Riyadh and to send newly appointed Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Tel Aviv in return.

“I call upon Salman, the King of Saudi, to invite the prime minister of Israel Netanyahu to visit Saudi Arabia,” Katz said, at the annual gathering of Israeli political leaders and strategists.

“We saw what a wonderful host you can be… when President Trump was there. You can also send your heir, the new one, Prince Mohammed bin Salman. He’s a dynamic person. He is an initiator. And he wants to break through.

“Exactly this way… they know who Iran is. They know we have to create an access vis-a-vis Iran. You can send him for a meeting in Israel and I promise you, he’s going to be a very welcome guest.”

Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s defence minister, also called for “full diplomatic and economic relations” at the conference.

A peace deal must be reached with “moderate Arab Sunni countries” before a peace agreement could be made with the Palestinians, Lieberman said.

He said: “The only light at the end of the tunnel is a complete regional agreement.” The hard-right defence minister added: “Full diplomatic and economic relations. Not under the table, but on the table.”

“I saw research on what the result of a regional agreement and full economic relations would mean between Israel, the Gulf countries and Saudi Arabia. This would mean an additional revenue of $45bn for Israel. That’s the potential. We have to clearly say what our priorities are.”

Prince Salman’s appointment as crown prince and heir to the Saudi throne has brought renewed hope of a rapprochement between the two countries, according to communications minister Ayoub Kara.

“Salman’s appointment means more economic cooperation in the Middle East, and not just regarding oil,” Kara said in a statement. “The strengthening of relations with the Trump administration is the beginning of a new and optimistic time between Saudi Arabia and regional states, including Israel and the Jewish people.”

Saudi Arabia has refused to recognise Israel since its inception in 1948 and has supported Palestinian rights to sovereignty over territory occupied by Israel since 1967. However, the Gulf kingdom did not participate in any of the Arab-Israeli Wars.

Both countries see Iran as a strategic threat and are close allies of the United States, while recent years have seen growing ties between the bastion of Sunni Islam and the self-proclaimed “Jewish state”.

Israel has also been supportive of a blockade of Qatar led by Saudi Arabia. Tel Aviv has repeatedly called on Qatar not to give asylum to key Palestinian figures, including Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal and Azmi Bishara.

During a tour of the Middle East last month, US President Donald Trump flew directly from Saudi Arabia to Israel in a flight dubbed a “historic moment” in relations between the two countries by deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Talks aimed at establishing economic ties between the countries began last week, according to The Times. Arab and American sources said the links would start small and allow Israeli businesses to operate in the Gulf, and possibly allow El Al, the national airline to fly over Saudi airspace.

Qatar: Center Stage in a World at War?

Doha, Qatar

[Ed note – An interesting analysis on the dispute between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and its potential for engulfing the rest of the Middle East and exploding into World War III, has been posted by blogger Green Crow. The piece is written by “James” and reposted from his Winter Patriot blog. Qatar, in his analysis, sees US influence in the Middle East waning and is pivoting toward Iran, Syria, and Russia, and he notes that both Iran and Russia have sent food shipments to Qatar in order to break the blockade imposed by the Saudis. Turkey is now openly siding with the Qataris as well–and this also makes perfect sense. US support for the Kurds in Syria–with the US seemingly now moving in the direction of setting up a de facto Kurdish state–would of course have to be a major, MAJOR “red line” for Turkey. This of course puts two NATO allies, the US and Turkey, at odds with each other. Bottom line: there is a major shift in alliances occurring.

James, the writer, mentions a Cross Talk program which aired June 14 in which Sharmine Narwani was guest and gave some valuable perspectives on the situation. You can find that program here, but there is also a more recent Cross Talk Program, here, that features Alexander Mercouris, that also discusses the further evolving situation. The program, which aired June 23, is entitled “Rushing to War?” Basically, what it comes down to is that the ISIS proxies seem to be headed toward collapse. So what happens with the proxies are finally defeated with the major powers gathered in Syria left alone staring each other in the face? Does that make a major war more likely? This is the question explored on the show. ]

By Greencrow

There have been some very good analyses of the Qatar crisis on the Alternative Internet in the past few days. My instincts tell me that this crisis might just be the one that puts the globalist neocon ziofascist push towards WWIII, which has been stalled due to some genius “checkmating” by Russia, over the top.  In my opinion, Saudi Arabia and its allies are, just like the ISIS terrorists, acting as USrael’s proxy in the Middle East…just on a grander scale.  In the guest column below, James fromWinter Patriot Blog has a very comprehensive and well presented assessment of what is going on in Qatar. I have added bolding and emphasis, and will have more thoughts in comments to follow…

Qatar Is Centre Stage In A World At War – UPDATED

Update at the foot of this article.

A few weeks ago, the Saudis exploded in their rhetoric against Qatar. They were apoplectic. What on earth could have caused this sudden flood of vitriol? Obviously, it was not the fact that Qatar was funding terrorists in Syria as this had been an open secret for years. Plus, it was also an open secret that the Saudi’s themselves are funding terrorism and even supplying many of the terrorists. The Qataris must have been threatening in a major way either or both of the two things the Saudis hold dear – their money and their political power. The former is increasingly dependent on the latter. Sharmine Narwani appeared on RT’s Crosstalk to talk about the Saudi/Qatar conflict. She was definitely the smartest one in the room but no one was really listening to her. In answer to Peter Lavelle’s first question, she revealed that the terror groups supported by the Qatar/Turkish alliance had gone very quiet in the last month and this had allowed the Syrian govt forces to concentrate on ISIS which is directly backed by the Saudis and the UAE. Consequently, ISIS is in disarray.

Clearly, to this writer at least, a deal had been done between Qatar, Turkey and Syria. Russia would have to be on-board, too. This has massive implications for the whole world. Narwani also thought that the Saudis were not above attacking Qatar and it might be imminent. One reason, as Sharmine Narwani states, may be the fact that Qatari backed terrorists in Syria have been fighting directly with Saudi backed jihadis. This benefits Turkey as well as Syria.

View the Crosstalk segment:

Turkey is pissed that the US is obviously trying to set up a Kurdish state in the north of Syria and barring Turkish military involvement. This evolving Kurdish state-let will inevitably threaten Turkish sovereignty. But what about Qatar?

QATAR

Qatar must be able to see which way the wind is blowing in the Syrian conflict and realise that they are not going to get their gas pipeline through Syrian territory after all. The LNG market, from which they get the bulk of their revenue from, is now oversupplied (from the US and Australian sources amongst others) and forcing prices downward. Qatar’s income is declining and it needs to pipe its gas to a major market to stay competitive. Piped gas is much cheaper to deliver and distribute than LNG. The only option is to talk to the Iranians. It also makes major business sense to do so.

Qatar and Iran share the largest gas field in the world and it is largely undeveloped. It makes sense to develop this field together and market the gas together as well. With Iran as a partner, the way is then open for Qatar to negotiate with the Russians and the Syrians concerning pipeline routes. The way is also open to ensure the future cash flow of the Qatari government and its royal household. Russian technology and Chinese finance will make it all happen. I would estimate that the gas sales will be denominated in Yuan and Rubles.

UNITED STATES

The Americans will get (are getting) their knickers in a bunch but they are rapidly losing influence in the Middle East, as Sharmine said. She was trying to elucidate that the Middle East countries are looking to rearrange their alliances and strategies to take this into account when she was cut off by Peter Lavelle.  The US is losing the battle to maintain the US dollar as the undisputed world currency and this deal will hasten its demise. The world wide supremacy of the US dollar is what their empire is based on. No dollar supremacy equals no US political supremacy and this will severely curtail their effective military supremacy.

The bankers that control the US, UK and Israel maintain their power by controlling energy supplies and indebting everybody to keep them relatively poor. Every other nation on earth will benefit from breaking this lock on power and enjoy growing industrialisation, trade and prosperity. This is being brought into stark contrast in the Middle East starting with Qatar. Qatar can stay with the US and slowly strangle itself economically or it can take a risk and make a break for economic freedom and prosperity.

SAUDI ARABIA

Saudi Arabia has ambitions of leading the Islamic world. It has used its gigantic income from oil sales to invest in religious indoctrination around the world and to bribe countries near and far. It has bought its way onto, if you can believe it, the UN Commission on the Status of Women and now heads the UN Human Rights Council. This is what money can do; but you need lots of money and a continuing supply of it. As the wealthiest oil exporter in the Middle East, it has dominated the Gulf Co-operation Council which, of course, includes Qatar.

Saudi Arabia’s income stream is declining and is needing to leverage what political power it has to gain more and to cover naked grabs of resources such as those in Yemen. But it needs the GCC to act as this lever. Qatar is undoing the Saudis dominance of the GCC. The Saudis future is at stake and with the Saudi royal house doubling down with the appointment of Mohammed bin Salman as Crown Prince, we can expect more military adventurism, i.e. wars, to hasten this decline and perhaps eventual demise.

TURKEY

There is the risk of an armed attack from the Saudis but Qatar has allies. Turkey is sending troops to Qatar. This is no small matter. Turkey has the largest military in the Middle East. Turkey is also making it clear that it has a major interest in the success of whatever deal Qatar is striking with Syria Iran and Russia. Iran and Russia have immediately sent food shipments to Qatar after the announcement of the blockade by Saudi Arabia and the UAE and Bahrain. It would seem from the co-ordinated response that the blockade was anticipated. Presumably, more is anticipated by this ad hoc alliance assisting Qatar.

With the original Qatar/Saudi pipeline dead in the water, Turkey would be amenable to a Qatar/Iran/Syrian pipeline going through Turkey. I’m sure their only demand would be that it not go through any Kurdish territory. Given that none of the other partners want the US/Israeli controlled and unreliable Kurds involved, that won’t be a problem. So the pipeline would have to go through the Aleppo corridor.

It would also need to go through south/eastern Syria where the US is now fighting at the risk of starting WW3 with the Russians. Now we see what the stakes are for the US and they are very high. If the gas pipeline goes through Turkey it will inevitably hook up with the Turkstream gas pipeline that will be Russian built and owned. Turkstream with travel through south eastern Europe; through the impoverished (thanks to the US and Germany) nations there. Turkey will become the gas hub between the suppliers in the Middle East, Russia and the Caucasus and on to the customers in Europe. Turkey has manoeuvred for a long time to be in this position. Much income and political influence to be gained and none of it dependent on the US!

EUROPE

Turkstream will be a lifeline to Serbia and Hungary. A branch line could easily extend to Greece and on to Italy. Europe’s prosperity will be massively enhanced with a secure, plentiful and cheap energy supplied from Iran, Qatar and Russia. German/EU and US dominance over southern and eastern Europe will evaporate as will US power. The Islamic mass migration may well stop, as well.

RUSSIA

In the immediate term, Russia will get what it has been aiming for and that is a ‘Gas OPEC’. Russia together with Iran and Qatar control the bulk of the world’s gas reserves and will set the price thereafter. Europe (Germany) will have to kick the US to the kerb and come to its senses regarding Russia and cease with the sanctions and resume normal bilateral trade arrangements. Peace and prosperity for Russia.

In the longer term, Russia will be able to see the back of the US in the Middle East and all the wars it brings with it and Russia will be left as the dominant power on its southern flank.

IRAN

Iran is being fast-tracked to join the Shanghai Co-operation Organisation (SCO) which is a de-facto military alliance between Russia and China and now Pakistan and India. The window of opportunity to attack Iran is finally closing, if it has not already closed. Thus Iran will have the US and its bankers finally off its back and will be able to resume full trade with the rest of the world. No more sanctions and it can resume its path to peace and prosperity through selling oil and gas wherever it wants and relieve its population of the constant stress of the threat of imminent war.

PAKISTAN and CHINA

There are other players involved, too; China and Pakistan. There have been long term negotiations between Iran, Pakistan and China to pipe gas through the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. No doubt, the Chinese would welcome Qatar as a partner in this project as it would also allow its influence to further spread into the other Gulf countries with their New Silk Road to follow.
Wherever the pipeline goes, so will roads and other infrastructure. The new infrastructure, together with the ready supply of energy, will assure development along the route and surrounding territory. This would be a massive boon for the Balochistan area and would quell the political unrest (sponsored by the CIA) that has cost both Pakistan and Iran, not to mention the Balochs. Exactly the same applies to the North-West Territories in the north of Pakistan.

No doubt the Pakistanis would like to be rid of the US which has bases on its territory and from which it launches aerial attacks against Pakistani territory at will. The list of benefits to multiple countries goes on and on but it won’t be smooth sailing. The US has been in decline for some years now but that hasn’t stopped it launching more wars and spreading terrorism and mayhem across the globe. This will continue. It is the nature of psychopathy to never give up; to always continue to do harm.

To get itself out of trouble over the centuries, the banking establishment, centered in London and New York, has started costly wars. They are now trying to do the same again in Syria and maybe soon in Qatar. We shall see soon enough.
Meanwhile I commend to you Pepe Escobar’s article at Sputnik where he talks about the implications of the SCO as well as the pipelines and the Qatari deal-

The West Can’t Smell What Eurasia is Cooking
https://sputniknews.com/columnists/201706161054701807-west-cannot-smell-…

Pepe is the ‘go-to’ man regarding pipelines. He was the first writer that I know of to seize their importance and ‘follow the pipelines’. He coined the term “Pipelineistan” and has written books about it.

UPDATE

Adam Garrie of The Duran has written an article outlining 13 demands that the Saudis have of Qatar. The list is not confirmed but “widely accepted” including by RT. Associated Press claims to have seen the document but AP is closely aligned with the Globalists, the Neocons and israel, but I repeat myself. So AP gives the list of demands credibility but because the Saudi govt has not confirmed it, it can shield itself from diplomatic criticism and back away from the “13 demands” at a later date if necessary.

Garrie notes that the demands are childish and he is right. This is what you get when you step on the toes big-time of psychopaths. They have the emotional maturity of 10 year olds. He also rightly notes that the demands cannot be complied with because they are extremely demeaning. This is intentional. Israel and the US routinely do the same when they want to start a war and this is precisely what Saudi Arabia is saying and wanting. ‘Either you stop with the alliance with Iran, Syria, Turkey and Russia or we will invade you. Israel and the US have to be onboard with this. And why wouldn’t they be? Their psychopathic dreams and political futures are equally at stake here as outlined above.”

***********************

So, there are a couple of deductions I would like to add to James’s excellent analysis.  He may have already made some of these points but I would like to emphasize the following in point form:

– Saudi Arabia and its allies are acting as proxies for USrael and the European Banksters that run their perpetual war for Profit global scam.

– They have definitely made the terms issued to Qatar “non negotiable“…to ensure a WWIII in the very short term…which will avoid their looming bankruptcy and (perhaps worse) geopolitical irrelevancy!

– Ultimately, just like everything else that has gone on in the Middle East for the past 15 years or more…this is aimed at Russia/China/Iran….but particularly Russia/Putin.  It will take every ounce of his chessmaster skills to outmaneuver the perps this time.  They’ve doubled down for “one final roll of the dice”…and Qatar is it.  Stay tuned.

قدرُنا الانتصار وقدرُكم الزوال محاصَرون أنتم ولا خيار إلا الرحيل

يونيو 24, 2017

محمد صادق الحسيني

إنه الفرز الكبير ما قبل المنازلة الكبرى، إنه التحشيد الأهم بين مَن يعلنون صراحة انتماءهم للمقاومة، وبين مَن يعلنون صراحة انتماءهم للاستسلام…

في يوم القدس العالمي لم يعد خافياً على أحد أن المواجهة الشاملة بيننا كمحور مقاومة وبين محور الشر الأميركي السعودي وملحقاته المتوسطة والصغيرة قد وصل الى أوجه على بوابات فلسطين المتعددة من باب المندب الى مضيق هرمز الى جنوب لبنان وسورية…

في هذه الأثناء يحاول العدو الأميركي «الإسرائيلي» السعودي العمل على ما يلي:

– تعريض إيران كداعم أساسي لفلسطين والمقاومة في المنطقة لمزيد من العقوبات والضغوط والمؤامرات لعزلها وتحويلها عدواً…!

– إصدار أمر عمليات للنظام السعودي للتحشيد ضد إيران في محاولة للإيحاء بقرب اندلاع حرب عربية إيرانية، لكن من يعرف موازين القوى جيداً يعرف ان النظام السعودي أضعف وأعجز وأجبن من أن يشن حرباً على الجمهورية الاسلامية في إيران.

– في هذه الأثناء فإن سبع سنوات من الحرب العالمية المستمرة على سورية، ورغم ذلك كله ستبقى سورية عقبة أمام أي تسوية عربية شاملة مع «إسرائيل» بل ونستطيع التحديد بالقول مرة أخرى: ألم غلبت الروم فأصبح بقاء سورية الأسد محتوم…!

– محاولة منع العراق من الالتحام بمحور المقاومة، وهو ما تعرّض لفشل ذريع من خلال التموضع المشرّف للحشد الشعبي العراقي المقدس على الحدود العراقية السورية واقتراب نهاية داعش مرة واحدة، والى الأبد، ما ادى الى إظهار إرادة سياسية واضحة بأن العراق قد أفلت من الحصار الأميركي ولم يعد جزءاً من عملية تصفية القضية الفلسطينية…

وهذا ما أكد عليه بوضوح سيد المقاومة، وهو يصارح جمهور الأمة بهذه المناسبة العظيمة بكل شفافية…

وأما العاصفة الرعدية القطرية التي أطلقت أخيراً بأمر عمليات أميركي في محاولة لتعزيز كلب الحراسة الأميركي الداعشي الجديد المتمثل بالجيل الرابع للأسرة السعودية ممثلاً بالمراهق محمد بن سلمان، فإننا نؤكد لمن أطلق هذه الأوامر بأن مَن أراد محاصرة مشروعنا لتحرير فلسطين بات عملياً هو المحاصَر بوعينا وانتشار ثقافة المقاومة، كما بقدراتنا الكبرى التي ستطيح حتى بالجديد من القواعد الأميركية..

وتعقيباً على ما جرى أخيراً من تحرّكات على هامش ما بات يُسمّى بأزمة قطر نقول:

أولاً: إن إقامة قاعدة تركية في قطر ليس إلا جزءاً من الحشد الاستراتيجي الأميركي ولحلف الناتو في مواجهة الصين وروسيا على المدى البعيد ولمواجهة إيران على المدى القصير والمتوسط بات في محاصرة محورنا..

ذلك أن معلوماتنا تؤكد بوصول طلائع القوات التركية إلى قاعدة العديد الأميركية في قطر المحاصرة أصلاً بصواريخ ذو الفقار وقيام وغيرها…

ثانياً: ولكن ما يغيب عن بال المخططين الأميركيين أن قواتهم، ومهما تعاظمت في دول الخليج، ستبقى دون أي وزن استراتيجي في التأثير على مجريات الصراع في المنطقه. ذلك أنهم يغفلون أن هذا الوجود سيبقى محاصراً بالاقتدار الإيراني من الشرق وبالتصاعد الكبير لقوة الشعب اليمني من الغرب وبحقيقة القوة العسكرية العراقية المتنامية في الشمال والتي أصبحت خارج السيطرة الأميركية مهما حاولوا تطويقها أو إضعافها.

ثالثاً: سيفهم جنرالات الناتو والولايات المتحدة أكثر فأكثر بأن القدرات الصاروخية الهائلة التي يملكها حلف المقاومة قادرة على ضرب كل قواعدهم ونقاط تواجدهم فيما يُسمّى بـ«الشرق الأوسط»، كما أنها قادرة على إنهاء وجود قاعدتهم الأساسية فيه ألا وهي الكيان الصهيوني، رغم كل حشدهم وقواعدهم…

رابعاً: نقول لهم في الختام أنتم محاصرون في كل مكان وليس لكم إلا طريق واحد للخروج من المأزق الاستراتيجي الذي أنتم فيه…

إنه طريق الخروج الآمن الوحيد.

أبدأوا بالتفاوض مع مَن يعنيه الأمر لتأمين خروج آمن لقواتكم من الأرض العربية جمعاء، ومعكم جموع مستوطنيكم على أرض فلسطين العربية، وإلا فمآلكم الانقراض والفناء عاجلاً أو آجلاً…!

ولا تنظروا منا تراجعاً عن فلسطين قيد أنملة لأن فلسطين جزء من أجزاء ديننا…

إذ إن دين الواحد منا لا يكتمل ما لم يضع تحرير فلسطين بوصلة له…

ولا يكتمل ديننا إلا بيوم البراءة من الشيطان الأكبر، أميركا…

لان أميركا أم الإرهاب، أميركا أم الكيان الصهيوني ومرضعته…

أميركا هي أم القاعدة وداعش وأخواتهما اذرعة الصهيونية…

أميركا أم آل سعود وكل القوى الإقليمية المتهودة والمتصهينة التي فرضت الحرب الخبيثة علينا في سورية والعراق وليبيا واليمن والبحرين…

أميركا هي «إسرائيل» الأولى التي اغتصبت أرض الأمم اللاتينية التي سمّتهم فيما بعد بالهنود الحمر…

أميركا هي مرضعة الإرهاب العالمي في مختلف بقاع الأرض وبالتالي لا يصح إحياء الدين ويوم القدس العالمي إلا بإعلاء الصوت عالياً:

الموت لأميركا الموت لـ«إسرائيل»

رحم الله الإمام الخميني العظيم

صاحب هذا اليوم العظيم..

بهذه العقيدة قاتلناكم ونقاتلكم..

والصواريخ التي انطلقت قبل أيام لتدك معاقل داعش الصغيرة في دير الزور، ستنطلق حتماً لتدك داعش الإقليمية في الرياض لو قرّر الغلام الجديد ارتكاب أي حماقة، وجاهزة لدكّ معاقل مرضعة الإرهابيين من الناقورة حتى إيلات، وواشنطن تعرف ذلك، وقد تسلمت الرسائل الحازمة بكل وضوح…

إنها السنن الكونية التي لا تبديل لها.

بعدنا طيّبين قرلوا الله.

نصرالله: محور المقاومة يتمدّد

هدّد إسرائيل بمقاتلين يمنيين وعراقيين وإيرانيين وأفغان وباكستانيين في أيّ حرب على سوريا ولبنان

نصرالله للسعوديين: غيّروا المناهج التربوية وأوقفوا تصدير الوهابية ليتوقف الإرهاب (مروان طحطح)

وجّه الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله رسائل قاسية لإسرائيل والنظام السعودي، متّهماً هذا النظام بفتح الطريق أمام إسرائيل للتطبيع مع العالم العربي. وأكّد نصرالله أن محور المقاومة يزداد قوّة وإسرائيل ستدفع أثماناً غالية في حال خاضت حرباً ضدّه، وأن المحور لن يتخّلى عن فلسطين

حسم الأمين العام لحزب الله السيّد حسن نصرالله قرار محور المقاومة في مواجهة حملات التطبيع العربية مع العدوّ الإسرائيلي، محذّراً من التسويات التي ترتّب على حساب فلسطين والشعب الفلسطيني.

ووجّه نصرالله أمس، في مناسبة يوم القدس العالمي، رسائل قاسية للعدو الإسرائيلي والنظام السعودي، مهدّداً بأن حرباً تنوي إسرائيل شنّها على لبنان وسوريا لن تبقى محصورة في هذين الميدانين، بل إنها ستفتح الباب أمام انضمام آلاف المقاتلين من العراق واليمن وإيران وأفغانستان وباكستان وبقاع أخرى في العالم إلى جانب سوريا والمقاومة. ولفت نصرالله إلى أن الحرب الدائرة في الإقليم أضافت إلى محور المقاومة قوتين كبيرتين، هما اليمن والمقاومة العراقية.

في بداية خطابه، ذكّر نصرالله بأن يوم القدس، أو «آخر يوم جمعة من شهر رمضان، هو أفضل يوم اختاره الامام الخميني ليكون يوماً عالمياً لأقدس قضية تتحمل مسؤوليتها اليوم الانسانية كلها والأمة جمعاء»، مشيراً إلى أن «يوم القدس هذا العام يتزامن مع الذكرى الـ50 لاحتلال الصهاينة للقدس. لقد كانوا في الأمس يحتفلون بسيطرتهم وهيمنتهم على القدس».

وشرح نصرالله كيف أن «منطقتنا دخلت مؤخراً في مرحلة مختلفة تماماً، وهذا مفصل صعب ومؤلم»، معتبراً أن «الولايات المتحدة وأدواتها الاقليمية حوّلت مسار الحراك الشعبي في العالم العربي باتجاه إعادة سيطرة قوى الهيمنة على منطقتنا وأموالنا ونفطنا وخيراتنا، ومن أهم الأهداف إنهاء القضية الفلسطينية والوصول إلى تسوية بين الكيان الصهيوني والدول العربية والاسلامية».

وتابع أن «الشعب الفلسطيني يتعرّض لحصار وتجويع وقطع الكهرباء واعتقالات وسجون وقتل على الشبهة وتقطيع أوصال الضفة الغربية والاستيطان وتهويد للقدس وهدم المنازل وتجريف الاراضي»، وأن الهدف الإسرائيلي من هذه الممارسات «أن ييأس الشعب الفلسطيني وقياداته ليقبلوا بالقليل». وقال إن المحاولات اليوم والضغوط السياسية والمؤامرات هدفها عزل إيران وتحويلها إلى عدو بدل إسرائيل واستنزافها في الحروب، ونقل الحرب الى داخلها بواسطة الجماعات التكفيرية».

وفي السياق ذاته، أكّد أن «سوريا دولة مركزية في محور المقاومة، وهي جبهة مع العدو، ولها أرض محتلة، كما أنها داعم أساسي للمقاومة في لبنان وفلسطين، وعقبة كبيرة أمام أي تسوية عربية شاملة على حساب المصالح العربية»، وعلى هذا الأساس «عملوا خلال السنوات الماضية على إسقاط نظامها السياسي وتدمير جيشها واستبدال ذلك بقيادات هشة نراها في المناسبات والمؤتمرات تتزلف لإسرائيل وأميركا».

وسأل نصرالله في تعليق على القمّة السعودية ــ الأميركية أخيراً في الرياض: «أليس من الهوان أمام 50 رئيس دولة عربية وإسلامية أن يقف دونالد ترامب ليتّهم حركات المقاومة بالإرهاب؟».

ثمّ تحدّث عن دور العراق، مشيراً إلى أنه «بعد أن أظهر العراق إرادة سياسية واضحة من خلال الانتخابات والحكومات المتعاقبة، أنه لن يكون جزءاً من العملية السياسية الأميركية العربية لتصفية فلسطين، وبعد ظهور تيارات شعبية وجهادية وثقافة مقاومة وروح مقاومة واستعداد عال لمساندة حركات المقاومة، أرسلوا داعش الى العراق، ولا تنسوا أن داعش هو صناعة أميركية»، مذكّراً بما كان يقوله ترامب قبل انتخابه، عن مسؤولية باراك أوباما وهيلاري كلينتون والسعودية عن صناعة «داعش». وأكّد نصرالله أن «داعش صناعة أميركية وتمويل سعودي وخليجي وتسهيلات تركية».

وتابع أنه «بفعل تضحيات العراقيين وثباتهم، اليوم نشهد الانتصارات الحاسمة، والمسألة في الموصل مسألة وقت، وداعش في العراق إلى زوال. وفي العراق وعي كبير وإحساس قوي بأنهم جزء من هذه المعركة على مستوى المنطقة، وهذا خبر سيّئ لإسرائيل».

أمّا عن اليمن، فأشار إلى أن «الحرب على الشعب اليمني سببها أنه يقف بجانب فلسطين» وأن «اليمن لا يمكن أن يكون جزءاً من عملية بيع فلسطين والتخلي عن القدس، لا من أجل عرش ولا سلطان ولا من أجل ترامب»، مؤكّداً أنه «أصبحت للمقاومة اليوم قوة شعبية وسياسية ووطنية وعسكرية وجهادية حقيقية وصلبة في اليمن، ونحن نفتخر أن يكونوا جزءاً من هذا المحور وأن ننتمي اليهم».

وعاد نصرالله إلى الخلاصة والتأكيد أن «المستهدف المركزي هو الشعب الفلسطيني»، لافتاً إلى أن «الاسرائيلي الآن يرفض أي مفاوضات مع الفلسطينيين، لأنه يعلق آماله على الدول العربية، فهذا مشروعهم وخططهم ومعاركهم ووسائلهم». وأشار إلى أن «المفاوض الفلسطيني في الماضي كان يتمسّك بالعلاقة مع الدول العربية لجرّ إسرائيل إلى التنازلات، أما الآن فقد انقلبت الآية، إسرائيل تريد كل شيء من الدول العربية ولاحقاً ترى إن كانت مستعدة لتقديم أي شيء للفلسطينيين والعودة إلى التفاوض». وشرح كيف أنه «في المشهد السياسي الاقليمي الحالي، النظام السعودي هو الذي يقوم بتقديم الأثمان لإسرائيل ويفتح الأبواب لها من أجل علاقات وتطبيع، فالسعودية بما تملكه من موقع متقدم ومال ونفوذ، تفعل ذلك كله باسم الدين».

ودعا نصرالله «الأمة إلى مواجهة هذا النظام، لأنه مدان، وهو نظام سيبيع كل شيء لترامب والأميركي وإسرائيل»، مقترحاً على السعوديين «تغيير المناهج التربوية في السعودية وإيقاف تصدير الوهابية، وعندها يتوقف الإرهاب»، مشدّداً على أن «الفكر الإرهابي يأتي من السعودية وعلمائها»، و«محاسبتها اليوم لجيرانها فضيحة».

وحول الهجوم على إيران، أكّد نصرالله أن «إيران لم تعزل، وصمدت أمام العقوبات وازدادت قوة وطوّرت صناعاتها وأصبحت أقوى حضوراً في الاقليم، والذين يريدون محاربتها في الارهاب، فهي لن تتسامح مع الارهاب وستردّ بقوة، وفعلت ذلك، ومعركة الارهاب مع إيران خاسرة وفاشلة، وستكون لها نتائج عكسية، إذ ستصبح أشد حضوراً»، مشيراً إلى أن «النظام السعودي أجبن من أن يشنّ حرباً على إيران»، وأن «إيران ستبقى داعمة لفلسطين وللقضية الفلسطينية ولحركات المقاومة في المنطقة مهما كانت الظروف أو الضغوط. وموقف إيران هو موقف عقائدي».

وأشار إلى أن «سوريا بفضل الصمود والثبات والمقاومة تجاوزت خطر إسقاط النظام، وهي ستتجاوز خطر التقسيم، ومحاولات عزلها جغرافياً فشلت بعد وصول الجيش السوري إلى الحدود العراقية، وهي ثابتة في موقفها السياسي في محور المقاومة».

وتطرّق نصرالله إلى خطابات بعض المسؤولين الإسرائيليين في مؤتمر هرتسيليا المنعقد في الكيان خلال الأسبوع الحالي، مشيراً إلى أن الخطباء «أجمعوا في مؤتمر هرتسيليا على رفض عودة لاجئ فلسطيني واحد إلى فلسطين». ولفت إلى أن «ليبرمان قال إن إسرائيل لم تنتصر منذ حرب 1967»، وأن وزير الحرب الإسرائيلي أكد أنه «لا نية لإسرائيل للقيام بحرب لا في الخريف ولا الصيف ولا الشتاء ولا في الشمال أو الجنوب»، مشيراً إلى أن «ليبرمان يعلم أن الحرب على غزة وعلى لبنان لن تصل به إلى نصر».

وفي رسالة يوم القدس، قال نصرالله إن على «الشعب الفلسطيني والمعنيين بهذه القضية ألا ييأسوا، رغم كل الصعوبات، وألا يملّوا ولا يتعبوا، بل أن يصبروا ويواصلوا، لأن هناك الكثير من الآمال والإنجازات، ولا يجوز أن نستسلم». مضيفاً أن «على الجميع أن يعرف أن محور المقاومة قوي جداً وأثبت ذلك، ولم يسقط، ولم ينهر، ولم يتداعَ، واستعاد زمام المقاومة في أكثر من ميدان. إن محور المقاومة لم ولن يخلي الساحة». وهدّد نصرالله إسرائيل، في حال تجرّأت على القيام بعدوان على سوريا ولبنان، بأن الحرب لن تنحصر بهذين المحورين، و«من يضمن أن لا تتوسّع الحرب؟». وقال «أنا لا أؤكّد أن هناك دولاً ستشترك في الحرب، لكن أيّ عدوان على محور المقاومة سيفتح الباب أمام انضمام مئات آلاف المجاهدين لقتال إسرائيل من العراق واليمن وأفغانستان وباكستان وإيران وأماكن أخرى في العالم».

وطمأن نصرالله الشعوب العربية إلى أن «الأوضاع في المنطقة لن تبقى هكذا، ومخططات الأعداء ستفشل. لقد فشلوا في تحقيق أهم الاهداف السياسية، والذين صمدوا وواجهوا سيواصلون العمل لتغيير الاوضاع، فالوجوه والدول والانظمة باتت مكشوفة بالكامل، ولعبة النفاق انتهت»، مضيفاً أنه «أياً تكن التطورات، على أميركا وإسرائيل أن تعرفا أن الشعب الفلسطيني وشعوب أمتنا لن يعترفوا بإسرائيل التي ستبقى غريبة عن المنطقة ودولة احتلال وإرهاب»، مجدّداً إيمانه بـ«القدس والقضية الفلسطينية والتزامه بمحور المقاومة وبالمقاومة». وقال: «بتقديم التضحيات نحمي لبنان ونصون المنطقة وندفع عن بلادنا وحشية داعش وأمثاله. وسنكون حيث يجب أن نكون، وبالصبر نمشي إلى النصر الآتي».

Middle East Rapidly Heading To Another Military Conflict. Threat Of Global War Growing

Middle East Rapidly Heading To Another Military Conflict. Threat Of Global War Growing

Saudi Arabia and its allies have presented Qatar with a 13-point list of demands, incuding shutting the Al-Jazeera TV network, cutting back diplomatic ties with Iran, severing relations with the Muslim Brotherhood and ending the urkish military presence in Qatar.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain issued the ultimatum on June 23 and gave Qatar 10 days to respond. This ultimatum amounts to calling for a total capitulation. If Qatar rejects it, the Saudi-led block may consider “other options” in solving the ongoing Qatar crisis. It may attempt to use a military force against the Arab nation or to implement a “cold war” approach against Doha.

On Saturday, Qatar confirmed that it is reviewing the presented demands.

“We are reviewing these demands out of respect for … regional security and there will be an official response from our ministry of foreign affairs,” Sheikh Saif al-Thani, the director of Qatar’s government communications office, said.

BBC reported:

On Wednesday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had asked the four countries to make their demands “reasonable and actionable”.

However, Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani, quoted by Al-Jazeera, said: “The US secretary of state recently called upon the blockading nations to produce a list of grievances that was ‘reasonable and actionable’.

“The British foreign secretary asked that the demands be ‘measured and realistic.’ This list does not satisfy that [sic] criteria.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have little options to step back following the release of their ultimatum to Qatar. If the Saudi-led block fails, this will lead to a dramatic fall of their public image and political influence in the Arab world.

It’s unlikely that Saudi Arabia and its allies didn’t consider various scenarious of conflict and hold consultations with the US before issuing of the ultimatum.

Earlier this week, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman appointed his son Mohammad Bin Salman as his successor instead of Mohammad Bin Nayef. This fact was very likely linked with the confrontation against Qatar.

The question is what kind of measures are the Saudis and their allies ready to implement? The Middle East is rapidly heading to another military conflict and a threat of another global war is growing with it.

 

Qatar Crisis
 According to the Qatari state-run media outlet Al-Jazeera, the list of demands includes:

1) Scale down diplomatic ties with Iran and close the Iranian diplomatic missions in Qatar, expel members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and cut off military and intelligence cooperation with Iran. Trade and commerce with Iran must comply with US and international sanctions in a manner that does not jeopardise the security of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

2) Immediately shut down the Turkish military base, which is currently under construction, and halt military cooperation with Turkey inside of Qatar.

3) Sever ties to all “terrorist, sectarian and ideological organisations,” specifically the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIL, al-Qaeda, Fateh al-Sham (formerly known as the Nusra Front) and Lebanon’s Hezbollah. Formally declare these entities as terror groups as per the list announced by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, UAE and Egypt, and concur with all future updates of this list.

4) Stop all means of funding for individuals, groups or organisations that have been designated as terrorists by Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, Bahrain, US and other countries.

5) Hand over “terrorist figures”, fugitives and wanted individuals from Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain to their countries of origin. Freeze their assets, and provide any desired information about their residency, movements and finances.

6) Shut down Al Jazeera and its affiliate stations.

7) End interference in sovereign countries’ internal affairs. Stop granting citizenship to wanted nationals from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain. Revoke Qatari citizenship for nationals where such citizenship violates those countries’ laws.

8) Pay reparations and compensation for loss of life and other financial losses caused by Qatar’s policies in recent years. The sum will be determined in coordination with Qatar.

9) Align Qatar’s military, political, social and economic policies with the other Gulf and Arab countries, as well as on economic matters, as per the 2014 agreement reached with Saudi Arabia.

10) Cease contact with the political opposition in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain. Hand over files detailing Qatar’s prior contact with and support for opposition groups, and submit details of their personal information and the support Qatar has provided them.

11) Shut down all news outlets funded directly and indirectly by Qatar, including Arabi21, Rassd, Al Araby Al Jadeed, Mekameleen and Middle East Eye, etc.

12) Agree to all the demands within 10 days of list being submitted to Qatar, or the list will become invalid.

13) Consent to monthly compliance audits in the first year after agreeing to the demands, followed by quarterly audits in the second year, and annual audits in the following 10 years.
