Sayyed Nasrallah: ‘Israel’ Can No Longer Wage Any War on Lebanon, Neither Air Force Nor Infantry Can Settle Battle

April 22, 2019

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah on Monday condemned the series of blasts which stormed Sri Lanka, stressing that culprits lack innate humane nature and calling for a comprehensive confrontation with terrorism and its supporters.

In his speech during Hezbollah ceremony, marking Imam Mahdi (P) Birthday and the 34th anniversary of establishing Imam Mahdi Scouts, Sayyed Nasrallah congratulated the Muslims and Christians on the holidays, stressing the importance of preserving those holidays despite the terrorist attacks which are moving from one country to another, including Yemen and occupied Palestine.

His eminence clarified that the followers of all the heavenly religions agree on the concept of the emergence of a savior, despite the differences over his identity, adding that this concept gives people hope to confront oppression.

“However, despair leads to surrender and loss.”

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that if the Palestinians did not remain hopeful, Trump would impose the ‘Deal of the Century’ on them, adding that hope and trust in God have enabled them to challenge all the world’s tyrants.

Lebanon had a clear experience in the resistance field, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who pointed out that when Hezbollah started its military operations against the Israeli occupation army, some Lebanese doubted and questioned the feasibility of this track.

“Had the Lebanese given up hope in Holy God surrendered in face of the Zionist enemy, Trump would have offered Lebanon to the Israeli entity.”

Hezbollah Leader hailed the Imam Al-Mahdi Scouts Association for its augmenting efforts in the various educational and social domains despite the hard circumstances, calling on parents and municipalities to encourage the children to join scouts, in general, and Al-Madi Scouts, in particular.

Lebanon’s economic crisis

Sayyed Nasrallah said all the Lebanese political parties have agreed that the country is suffering from a deep economic crisis and that a consensual solution must be reached.

“All the parties must hold a national responsibility and approve the needed austerity measures, away from the personal, regional and sectarian interests. All suggestions must be mulled carefully before taking the necessary decisions.”

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Hezbollah would join all the other parties in holding the national responsibility of taking the necessary measures needed to cope with the economic crisis, revealing that the party’s specialized committees (formed of ministers, parliament members and experts) have mulled the possible solutions which require patience and sagacity.

“Hezbollah is ready its draft solutions in the cabinet sessions, not via the media outlets. However, we reiterate our rejection of tampering with the incomes of the poor.”

Israeli war on Lebanon

Sayyed Nasrallah denied categorically the report published by one of the Kuwaiti newspapers which attributed to his eminence statements about an imminent war expected to be launched by the Israeli enemy on Lebanon next summer.

“I have never said that neither in a public meeting, nor in a closed session.”

His eminence also denied that he had said that during the upcoming war the Resistance leadership and senior commanders would be killed, stressing that death depends on the divine will and hoping that he himself will participate in liberating occupied Palestine and pray at Al-Aqsa Mosque.

“Although the Resistance always prepares for the worst possibilities, I personally tend to rule out the possibility of witnessing an Israeli war on Lebanon because the enemy’s ‘home’ front is not ready for that.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also stressed that all the Israeli claims about their ability to intercept missiles are false, adding all their measures will fail to achieve that purpose.

Neither the air force nor the ground forces can settle the battle in favor of the Israeli enemy, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who added that the Zionists themselves acknowledge that their infantry troops are unable to wage any war.

Sayyed Nasrallah underlined that the Zionist enemy is deceptive by nature, adding this imposes on the Resistance to be ready to confront any Israeli military escalation.

His eminence also said that some think that the financial pressure on Hezbollah would lead the party to surrender and that there is no need for any Israeli war on the Resistance

Sayyed Nasrallah warned against the negative economic consequences of such rumors on Lebanon ahead of the summer season, calling on the media outlets to check their veracity before circulating them.

Sayyed Nasrallah noted that a lot of media outlets are involved in circulating false news reports, citing two examples:

“Al-Arabiya news network circulated false rumors about clashes between Iranian and Russian troops in Syria’s Aleppo and Deir Ezzor. Actually cooperation among the allies in Syria is still ongoing.”

“News websites falsely quoted the Israeli ‘justice’ minister as saying that ‘Israel’ would eradicate all the Arabs in northern Africa.”

Saudi & Emirates Shameful Role in Region

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah on Monday highlighted the shameful role of Saudi and Emirates in the Middle East, stressing that they both have contributed to the terrorist instability and chaos in the region.

The thought of the terrorist groups has been based on the Saudi Wahhabism, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who added that KSA will price of supporting and fostering those groups, citing ISIL attack on a police station in northern Riyadh on Sunday (April 21).

In his speech during Hezbollah ceremony, marking Imam Mahdi (P) Birthday and the 34th anniversary of establishing Imam Mahdi Scouts, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the terrorist groups which stormed many of the regional countries have been backed and reinforced by Saudi and Emirates, highlighting their brutal war on Yemen.

Sayyed Nasrallah added that after the US president Donald Trump decided to end the waivers on Iran oil imports, Saudi and Emirates pledged to increase their oil production in order to maintain the international prices, describing this move as shameful.

Hezbollah Secretary General considered that the US act against Iran endangers the world’s countries and violates all the international laws and treaties, calling for confronting this hostile trend.

Sayyed Nasrallah finally noted that “we belong to a folk who has always defeated the occupiers and usurpers,” reiterating that “we will emerge victorious from all the upcoming challenges, depending on our power, sagacity and hope in God”.

الحصار تفاوضي… «إسرائيل» عاجزة عن خوض حرب

أبريل 23, 2019

ناصر قنديل

– لستُ في وارد الدخول في مناقشة التسريبات ولا الوقوع في وحول اللعبة الهادفة لمناقشة مصداقية المصادر، وأنا أرى أمامي الوقائع وأقرأها بعيداً عن معلومات صناع القرار، وعلى رأسهم سيد المقاومة وما نسب إليه في سياق هذه الحرب الإعلامية والنفسية، التي تعتمد تقنيات تبييض الأموال ذاتها، فيُرمى كلام مشكوك فيه وبصدقيته في صحيفة، تنقله فضائية من باب التساؤل، ليؤكده محلل يظهر على شاشتها، ثم يؤخذ كلام المحلل في الصحيفة عبر حوار مع محلل آخر ليصير الحديث عن التسريبات كخبر مؤكد. وما يعني القارئ هو السؤال، هل «إسرائيل» بوارد شن حرب في المنطقة تستهدف حزب الله، وما هي حظوظ هذه الحرب وكيفية وقوعها إن نشبت؟

– الواضح أولاً أن أميركا و«إسرائيل» كقوتين قادرتين على التفكير بالحرب من بين أعداء محور المقاومة، في حال تراجع استراتيجي عسكرياً. فالحرب على سورية التي شكلت حربهما معاً تمّت خسارتها بالمعنى الاستراتيجي، لتحل مكانهما كقوى نافذة في الميدان السوري كل من روسيا وإيران، والواضح ان إخراج روسيا وإيران من سورية لم يعد خياراً واقعياً على الطاولة، بل حل مكانه الخيار التفاوضي لشروط هذا البقاء، وما يتصل منه سواء بوقف النار على حدود الجولان، أو بمستقبل دور محور المقاومة الممتد من إيران إلى العراق إلى سورية فلبنان وفلسطين. والسعي لضمان عدم شن حرب مستقبلية على «إسرائيل» كحرب العام 1973، كانت الخشية منها كما كان السعي لاستباقها أحد اسباب الحرب على سورية.

– الواضح أيضاً أن أميركا و«إسرائيل» في حال تراجع تكتيكي، لجهة الحركة العسكرية، فالغارات الأميركية الهادفة لرسم خطوط حمراء لتقدم الجيش السوري تراجعت دون تحقيق أهدافها وسحبت من التداول، والتدخل الإسرائيلي الذي كان عنوانه الشراكة بحصة من سورية المقسمة، سقط وحلت مكانه الغارات الإسرائيلية الهادفة لفرض شروط الإستقرار في سورية بدفتر شروط إسرائيلي، ثم تراجعت لصالح بند وحيد هو إخراج إيران وحزب الله، وتحت ضغط الرعاية الروسية لبناء الدفاعات الجوية السورية، تراجعت عن دخول الأجواء السورية، وصارت تفاوضية ولاحقاً تذكيرية، تشبه عمليات المقاومة بعد العام 2000 في مزارع شبعا، تقول نحن لم نتقبل البقاء الإيراني في سورية لكننا لسنا ضمن خطة إخراجه بالقوة راهناً ولا في وضعية الذهاب للحرب.

– بالتزامن يبدو السعي الأميركي لتعويض إسرائيل بهدايا معنوية عن فقدان القدرة على الذهاب للحرب، وتشترك روسيا جزئياً في ذلك، لكن التعويض الأميركي بجوائز من عيار الاعتراف بضم الجولان وإعلان القدس عاصمة لـ«إسرائيل» تعينان إقفال الباب أمام الدور الأميركي في المفاوضات وسقوط سقف التسويات، بخلاف ما يظنه البعض تمهيداً لصفقة القرن التي لا وجود لها بغياب شريك يملك القدرة على تهديد أمن «إسرائيل» ينضم لصفقة سلام معها. فالإعلانات الأميركية توصيف لواقع لاستحالة التسويات مع محور المقاومة، وتوفير التغطية لـ«إسرائيل» للتعامل مع زمن سقوط التسويات، وحرب الوجود بدلا من حرب الحدود، لكن دون المغامرة بالذهاب لحرب تبدو حاجة من يريد أن يحرر الأرض المحتلة، وليست حاجة من يحتلها.

– بالمقابل يبدو محور المقاومة ليس بوارد الذهاب لحرب تحتاج الكثير من الإعداد والموارد، وهو في مرحلة تثبيت انتصاراته وهضمها وبلورة واقع تكامل مكوناته، وتعزيز حضورها، وعدم استنفاد مرحلة التحالف مع روسيا بسرعة، وفي سورية لم تنته عملية التحرير، وفي اليمن تثبيت التسوية لا يزال مطروحاً على الطاولة، وفي التكامل بين سورية والعراق وإيران ثمة الكثير مما يجب فعله، وبمثل ما يشكل الحصار المالي إحدى أداوت منع ذهاب محور المقاومة إلى الحرب سريعاً، يشكل غياب سقف سياسي للتفاهمات والتسويات سبباً للانزلاق إلى الحرب، في وقت تكثر فيه الإشارات لمحاور تهدئة قد لا تبلغ حد التسويات، لكنها تسحب فتائل التوتر والتصعيد، كالتبدلات في المواقف الأممية من اللجنة الدستورية في سورية وشروطها، ومؤتمر رؤساء برلمانات دول جوار العراق، والرسائل الروسية بين سورية والسعودية.

– المنطقة في مرحلة شد وجذب تحت سقف جديد، بمظلة روسية، وبقدر من عدم الممانعة الأميركية الإسرائيلية، لوضع قواعد اشتباك جديدة، لا تصنع تسويات، لكنها تمنع نشوب حرب، والانزلاق فيها قد يحدث في أي عطل يصيب المكابح.

Libya – U.S. Reveals Support For Hafter’s Side

By Moon Of Alabama

April 19, 2019 “Information Clearing House” – The Libyan National Army (LNA) troops of General Hafter attack the militias which support the UN recognized government in Tripoli from the south. The LNA still lacks forces for a larger break through. Several objects at the front changed hands several times. There are bloody skirmishes but no big fights. Those are still to come.


Map by South Front – bigger

Some people doubt that Hafter can be successful:

Analysts believe that Haftar over-estimates the strength of his LNA.

They say the controversial field marshal, who backs an administration rival to the GNA based in eastern Libya, was counting on a quick collapse of Tripoli militias.

But pro-GNA reinforcements from around Tripoli rushed to assist in driving back his forces.

It was never clear if Hafter really hoped that a lightning attack on Tripoli would achieve a fast victory, or if his sudden move was intended to rally support from outside. He is now certainly getting such support and that will be to his decisive advantage in the longer play.

As we described it:

Hafter has open support from France, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Russia. The Trump administration is not interested to step into the mess. Hafter is an old CIA asset and if he takes control there is a good chance that the U.S. will have influence over him. As long as Libyan oil flows and keeps the global oil price down Trump will be happy. Russia is trying to stay in the background to not give the anti-Russian forces in Washington an excuse to intervene.

The Muslim Brothers, supported by Turkey and Qatar, are still in play in Misrata but have otherwise lost their influence on the ground.

Since then the Wall Street Journal reported that Saudi Arabia pledged tens of millions of dollars to support Hafter’s move on Tripoli. During the last week Hafter visited President Sisi of Egypt.

Europe is disunited over the issue. Italy wants to keep its influence in its former colony Libya and its historical position in the Libyan oil industry. It is also concerned about a new wave of refugees. It supports the government in Tripoli. France is supporting Hafter with an eye on taking over some oil business. It is also concerned about Islamist activities in former French colonies west and south of Libya. With Italy and France in a clinch, the European Union only issued a weak statement that called for a stop of fighting without naming any side.

Concern over the militias which support the Tripoli government increased too. They not as harmless as many seem to have thought:

A week after an aspiring strongman launched a surprise attack on the Libyan capital, an assortment of criminal gangs and extremists are rushing into the fight against him, raising new questions for the United States and other Western powers that have condemned his attack.

But an increasingly unsavory cast has joined the coalition against him, including a group closely tied to a militia sanctioned as a terrorist organization by the United States and the United Nations; an extremist warlord sanctioned for undermining Libya’s stability; and other militia leaders sanctioned for migrant trafficking. That mix so alarms Western powers that some may deem General Hifter the lesser evil.

Yesterday the U.S., which had said little when Hafter launched his assault on Tripoli, came out of the closet:

The United States and Russia both said Thursday they could not support a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for a cease-fire in Libya at this time, diplomats said, as mortar bombs crashed down on a suburb of the Libyan capital, Tripoli.

Russia objects to the British-drafted resolution blaming eastern Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar for the latest flare-up in violence when his Libyan National Army (LNA) advanced to the outskirts of Tripoli earlier this month, diplomats said.

The United States gave no reason for its position on the draft resolution …

Today we learn that Trump spoke with Hafter several days ago:

President Donald Trump spoke on Monday with a Libyan strongman whose forces are advancing on the nation’s capital, the White House said, in a move that may undermine support for the country’s internationally recognized government.

Trump discussed “ongoing counterterrorism efforts and the need to achieve peace and stability in Libya” with Haftar, White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley said in a statement. Gidley called Haftar by the title “field marshal.”

“The president recognized Field Marshal Haftar’s significant role in fighting terrorism and securing Libya’s oil resources, and the two discussed a shared vision for Libya’s transition to a stable, democratic political system,” Gidley said.

The key point for Trump is the oil price. His administration put sanctions on sales of Iranian and Venezuelan oil. Since the beginning of the year crude oil prices rallied from the low $50 per barrel to over $70 per barrel. Trump plans to reduce waivers he gave to some of the countries that continue to buy Iranian oil. That would further decrease Iran’s output. Any additional disruption of Libya’s oil production would increase the oil price and harm the U.S. economy. It would thereby make Trump’s plan for total sanctions on Iranian oil impossible.

Hafter controls most of Libya’s oil supplies. With open backing from the U.S., Russia and France, support from the military in Egypt, and with enough Saudi cash to finance his army, he surely has all the needed support to sustain a longer fight.

His next move will likely be against the small air force the Misrata gangs assembled. The U.S. might give him a helping hand in that. Hafter could then close down the airspace for flights from Turkey and Qatar. That would cut into the resupply Misrata and Tripoli need for a longer fight.

Those who say that “there is no military solution” to the situation in Libya will likely be proven wrong. Hafter has all he needs to win the fight.

Regional Powers Partake in Iraq Summit in Blow to ‘Arab NATO’

rouhani

April 20, 2019

Iraq’s parliamentary summit has brought together the country’s neighbors in what has been described as “a display of rare regional unity”, further sidelining a US initiative to form an “Arab NATO”.

The one-day summit, hosted by Iraq’s Parliament speaker Mohammed al-Halbusi, brings together representatives from Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, and Kuwait on Saturday.

Speaking on Friday, the young Iraqi speaker welcomed the foreign delegations, describing Baghdad as a historical center of “Arabism, Islam and peace”.

“Iraq, proud, prideful and victorious over terrorism, is honored by the presence of its neighbors in Baghdad,” he added.

His deputy, Bashir Haddad, said the summit will have a “significant” impact on cooperation related to the region’s security and stability.

He called the summit “a valuable initiative and opportunity for strategic partnerships between Iraq and its neighbors.”

“This is a positive message to all neighboring countries and the world that Iraq is determined to regain its health and return to its Arab, regional environment and assume its rightful place in the map of the balance of power,” he added.

Iran’s Parliament speaker Ali Larijani is represented by MP Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the former chairman of the chamber’s National Security Foreign Policy Committee.

Larijani had initially planned to take part in the summit but was unable to do so due to a conflicting work schedule, reports said.

The summit marks yet another important watershed in a recent booming of diplomatic cooperation in a region that was largely been bedeviled by bloody conflicts in recent years.

Pakistan FM details steps taken to secure border with Iran

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has briefed the media on steps taken by the country to strengthen security along its porous border with Iran a day before the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is due to arrive in Iran for a long-awaited visit.

Qureshi told journalists in a press conference in Islamabad on Saturday that Pakistan had already taken “six steps” to ensure stability along the Iran border as part of a project dubbed the “border of peace”.

He said a new command has been formed in the Pakistani city of Turbat to improve the effectiveness of border guards deployment in the area while a new Frontier Corps will be responsible for smooth management of the border.

Qureshi said Iran and Pakistan had already started setting up joint border centers while agreeing to synchronize border patrolling exercises and carry out heli-surveillance to prevent incidents like those in the past that have affected security in the region.

The top Pakistani diplomat also elaborated that a project to fence the entire 950-kilometer border between Iran and Pakistan had already kicked off from the points frequently exploited by terrorist groups.

The announcement comes amid Iran’s frequent calls on Pakistan to ensure security along the border and prevent certain groups to cross the frontier and carry out acts of terrorism in Iran.

Some 27 Iranian military officers were killed in February in an attack in Iran’s Sistan-Baluchistan region, Iran blamed groups active inside the Pakistani territory for the attack.

Qurashi’s remarks also came two days after some 14 Pakistani navy personnel were killed in an attack in a remote area of Pakistan’s southwestern province of Balochistan. Islamabad has said that a group which it claims is active inside Iran was behind the attack.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned the terrorist attack on Thursday, saying it was a sign that extremists and their sponsors were terrified by close relations between Iran and Pakistan.

The border security between Iran and Pakistan will be a key theme of Imran’s imminent visit to Iran. The two-day trip will begin on Sunday with a short visit by Imran to the northeastern Iranian city of Mashhad before he comes to Tehran to hold official talks with the Iranian officials.

توازن رعب يخيّم على المنطقة

أبريل 19, 2019

ناصر قنديل

– تبدو المنطقة في ظل فراغ سياسي لا أفق لتخطّيه في المدى المنظور، فالتمسك الأميركي بأولوية إرضاء الشهوات الإسرائيلية المنفلتة من الضوابط كلها، وما تعنيه هذه الأولوية من رفع لمنسوب التوتر وإحلال التصعيد مكان التهدئة ولغة المواجهة مكان لغة التفاوض، من جهة، ومن جهة مقابلة ربط كل الملفات المفتوحة في المنطقة من اليمن إلى سورية ولبنان والعراق بالعلاقة الأميركية الإيرانية، التي قررت إدارة الرئيس دونالد ترامب ربطها بالشروط الإسرائيلية، التي تجعل إيجاد سقف سياسي مشترك لأي من أزماتها أمراً مستحيلاً. وعندما يكون أفق التسويات مغلقاً ويكون التوتر في تصاعد، تصير المنطقة مكشوفة ومحكومة بتطوراتها بصدفة لا يعلم أحد مدى تستدرج القوى المتقابلة للانزلاق إلى حلقات أعلى من التوتر، وربما المواجهة، وكل مواجهة بلا سقوف تصير مفتوحة على احتمالات الأسوأ، وهو الحرب التي يسعى الجميع لتفاديها، لإدراك أن لا أفق لنصر حاسم أو لكلفة معقولة لأي حرب، وهذا هو توازن الرعب، بدلاً من توازن الدرع الذي يعني ضمان عدم الانزلاق نحو الحرب، الذي حكم سنوات ماضية رغم ضراوة المواجهات التي شهدتها.

– على طرفي المواجهة في الإقليم تقف واشنطن وموسكو على ضفتي اشتباك مفتوح في جبهات متعددة، خلافاً لكل المراحل الماضية، ولا يبدو للحوار بعد فرصة لصناعة التسويات، فمن فنزويلا إلى سورية وأوكرانيا، وصولاً إلى السودان والجزائر وليبيا، تقف واشنطن في ضفة وتقف موسكو في ضفة مقابلة، وعندما تتقدّم إحداهما كانت الأخرى تتراجع، بينما نراها اليوم تتقدم، ومثلما جاءت واشنطن إلى سورية ولم تراع كونها من المحيط الأمني الحيوي لروسيا، ذهبت موسكو إلى فنزويلا، والتوتر المتصاعد لن يعني وقوع الحرب بين الدولتين العظميين، بل زيادة توازن الرعب الحاكم في المنطقة.

– بالتوازي لا تبدو أميركا و»إسرائيل» قادرتين على التقدم في المجال العسكري، لذلك تخوضان حرباً مالية تتولاها واشنطن، وحرباً إعلامية ونفسية تخوضها تل أبيب، وفيما يبدو محور المقاومة مقتدراً على الصعيد العسكري، إلا أنه يبدو متحسباً للانزلاق من أي خطوة عسكرية محسوبة نحو مواجهة أكبر، ولذلك تبدو الاستعراضات الإسرائيلية العسكريّة ضمن إطار الدعاية العسكرية الإعلامية والنفسية، قادرة على اللعب في الوقت الضائع، لكنها حذرة من إيقاع أي خسائر بشرية تجعل الرد عليها إلزامياً، وتفتح الباب لتصاعد منسوب المواجهة والتوتر، ويبدو تركيز محور المقاومة على إنهاء الجرح السوري المفتوح للتحرّر من أعبائه، من إدلب إلى المنطقة الشرقية للفرات، لرسم قواعد اشتباك تتناسب مع الحرب المالية والنفسية وتخرج من توازن الرعب القائم.

– ربما يكون في واشنطن وتل أبيب من يتوهّم بمتغيرات نوعية في مصادر قوة محور المقاومة بفعل الحرب المالية، لكن الأكيد أن زمن الاختبار الضروري لهذا الوهم ليس طويلاً، مقابل الإمعان في اختبار مدى زمن صبر محور المقاومة على الاستعراضات العسكرية الإسرائيلية، وعندما تلتقي نهايتا الزمنين، زمن فعالية الحرب المالية وزمن صبر محور المقاومة، مع زمن حسم استرداد الجغرافيا السورية، ستدخل المنطقة في وضع جديد، قد تكون الحرب إحدى مفرداته، ما لم تحدث مفاجأة بحجم تفاهم روسي أميركي على سقوف تسويات كبرى، أو فك حلقات التصعيد بالتدريج بعضها عن بعض. ومرة أخرى تكون سورية هي المقياس، بفصل التسوية حولها عن سائر ملفات المواجهة، وإلا فتوازن الرعب مرشح في العام المقبل للارتفاع إلى حرارة أعلى، والانزلاق نحو نقاط الخطر سيكون وارداً بقوة.
