Iran’s fight against Saudi/israeli sponsored terrorism should be recognised

Saudi Arabia Has Got Away With Terror for Decades

TEHRAN (FNA)- Saudi Arabia continues to adopt an aggressive policy toward Iran and its allies which are helping Iraq and Syria fight menacing Takfiri militancy

Takfirism, which is the trademark of many terror groups operating in the region, including the ISIL, is largely influenced by Wahhabism, the radical ideology dominating Saudi Arabia and freely preached by Saudi clerics.

It’s no coincidence then that Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir is accusing Iran of supporting terrorism in Syria: With Tehran behind Damascus, there will be no clear-cut success for the United States, Israel, the House of Saud and their ISIL proxy forces in the ongoing war of aggression against Syria. Other  than trying to wrest Syria and Iraq away from Iran, the regime changers hold no interest in fostering “democracy” in Damascus and Baghdad.

The House of Saud cannot deny the fact that in their push for regime change in Damascus they are committing crimes against humanity with a helping hand from ISIL proxy forces and Israel. They have got away with terror not for years but for decades. To substantiate:

In an interview with Haaretz, former Israeli defense minister Moshe Ya’alon once said: “Israel is openly backing the Free Syrian Army and other ‘moderate’ factions fighting the Syrian government.” The indications are that Israel has been backing all comers as part of their decision to favour terrorists over the democratically elected government of President Bashar al-Assad.

The narrative now is that they are still trying to prop up the imaginary “moderates”, but Israel’s Syria problem is actually looking a lot like everyone else’s in the region: Israel and its partners in crime helped regiment, train and arm the terrorist group of ISIL and they are now facing the consequences of the instability they helped create and back throughout the region and beyond.

A frequent Western interpretation of Iranian/Saudi manoeuvres in the region is to depict them as part of a sectarian proxy warfare. Unlike Saudi Arabia, however, Iran is for Muslim unity and peace. Tehran is not helping Damascus in the fight against ISIL and other “moderate” terrorists in order to promote its strategic dominance and/or to exploit its sectarian advantage, which, in turn, would be used to promote its strategic dominance in the region.

Iran is duly helping Syria because they are allies and it has the full consent of the government in Damascus. In the past, the Iranian government tried numerous times to help resolve the dispute between Damascus and opposition groups through dialogue and reconciliation in Tehran, which ultimately failed – thanks in large part to all those regional and trans-regional regimes that helped turn the once peaceful opposition into ISIL and Al-Qaeda allies.

With such a dark history, Saudi Foreign Minister al-Jubeir is flogging a dead horse going out and accusing Iran of supporting terror and exacerbating the situation in Syria. By accusing Iran, he is clearly trying to hide his own problems and shortcomings as foreign minister. It is now an open secret that the “moderate” head choppers managed to amass territory in Syria and Iraq and further destabilise the entire planet on the back of financial and military support they received and continue to receive from their generous masters in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Regardless, Iran takes pride in supporting its ally Syria through thick and thin. Just like Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and Libya, Syria is a victim of international terrorism and regime change fantasies. The United States, Israel and almost all Arab regimes are in cahoots to do a regime change Syria in order to contain Iran, protect Israel, and implement their regional designs. So far, they have failed.

France: Priest Killed after ISIL Knifemen Take Hostages in Normandy Church


A priest has been killed in the Normandy region of northern France after two ISIL operatives armed with knives took hostages in a church before being shot dead.

Father Jacques Hamel, 84, had his throat slit, investigative sources said.

Five people – reportedly the priest, two nuns and two worshippers – were inside the church in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, near Rouen, when it came under attack.France church attack

Pierre Henry Brandet, an interior ministry spokesman, said the church was surrounded by the BRI, France’s “anti-gang brigade”, which specializes in kidnappings, and that “the two assailants came out and were killed by police”.

Brandet, said one of the hostages had been critically wounded, while the three others were unharmed.

He said the hostage-takers had been “neutralized” after coming out of the church, and that the police were now searching the church for explosives.

The area has been cordoned off and police have told people to stay away, the BBC reported.

For its part, the Takfiri ISIL group claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the two attackers were its “soldiers”.

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has expressed his horror at the “barbaric attack”.

“The whole of France and all Catholics are wounded. We will stand together,” he wrote on Twitter.

President Francois Hollande has arrived in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray to be briefed by police.

Saudi Command Misleading Its People on Yemen Losses: Mujtahid

Saudi whistle-blower Mujtahid, lashed out at the Saudi command over misleading its people on the losses in the Yemen war, stressing that the real losses are much more the announced.

“Unfortunately, the Apatchi was downed by Houthis, it was not crashed due to bad weather. The Apatche operates during hard conditions. They (Houthis) also destroyed three Abrams tanks,” Mujtahid tweeted.

Earlier on Monday, the Command of the Saudi-led Coalition Forces  announced that two Saudi army pilots died when an Apache helicopter crashed in the Yemeni region of Marib in “bad weather.”Helicopter

On his tweets, Mujtahid who is believed to be a member of or have a well-connected source in the royal family, said that the coalition forces are “avenging” from the Yemeni civilians over their losses in battlefield.

“10 civilians were killed and many others were injured in strikes allegedly targeting al-Qaeda. The operation in Jaar was under the request of the US, and definitely no one of al-Qaeda was harmed.”

The Saudi casualties are many more than announced, Mujtahid said, noting that the Houthis revolutionaries, who are also known as Ansarullah, managed to announce their names and ranks “at a time that (spokesman of the Saudi-led coalition, General Ahmed) Assiri  doesn’t know the number of the Houthi casualties.”

Meanwhile, Mujtahid said that the Saudis are trying to find a way to end the war in Yemen, disclosing that there are underway effort to do so.

“(Defense Minister Mohammad) Bin Salman realizes that the continuation of the military battle is not in his interest. He is desperately trying to hold an agreement with the Houthis and the Iranians,” the Saudi  whistle-blower said, noting that such agreement would be mediated by the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

“Our sources in the battlefield say that the Houthis are fully prepared for the confrontation while our forces are in a state of chaos.”

“We would not have said so if the king and his defense minister were indulged in defending the their country, but we have to expose this  treacherous command which is hanging around between Tangier and Paris.”

 KSA: 5 Soldiers Killed at Border, 2 Pilots Die in Yemen Crash

Local Editor

Five Saudi border guards were killed in clashes along the Yemen border and two Saudi pilots died when their Apache helicopter crashed inside Yemen on Tuesday in one of the deadliest days for the kingdom’s troops in months.

Saudi Arabia’s Interior Ministry said in a statement the border guards were killed in an eight-hour-long cross-border clash with revolutionaries from Yemen.

In its statement, the Saudi Interior Ministry confessed the death of the five Border Guard personnel – all with the rank of Private First Class – Sulaiman bin Said Al-Maidi; Musa bin Zain Al-Marhabi; Abdullah bin Mohammed Sharahaili; Marzouq bin Said Lasloum; and Jabir bin Ali Al-Alawi.

Also Monday, the Saudi-led coalition said two Saudi pilots died when their helicopter crashed “due to weather conditions,” though it did not specify where in Yemen the crash occurred.

According to the Arabic-language al-Masirah channel, the Saudi helicopter crashed in Ber al-Maraziq area between Mareb and Jawf provinces.

Military officials explained that the air defenses of the Yemeni army and popular committees managed to target the hostile helicopter, which led to its downfall.

The US-backed Saudi-led aggression on Yemen started since March 2015 to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi. Since the beginning of the aggression, Hadi fled to Sanaa and then asked refuge in Saudi Arabia.

The war on Yemen had martyred some 9,000 people and pushed the Arab world’s poorest country to the brink of famine. It also enabled both Yemen’s al-Qaida branch and an upstart Daesh [Arabic acronym for “ISIS” / “ISIL”] affiliate to seize territory and carry out large-scale attacks.

Yemeni forces had been engaged in retaliatory operations against the Saudi forces deployed in the country.

A cease-fire declared by the UN since April 10 remains shaky, with both sides reporting numerous breaches. The Saudi-backed Hadi regime and the Ansarullah revolutionaries are currently participating in UN-brokered peace talks in Kuwait.

Robert Fisk: We Love to Talk of Terror – But After The Munich Shooting…

Robert Fisk

The frightful and bloody hours of Friday night and Saturday morning in Munich and Kabul – despite the 3,000 miles that separate the two cities – provided a highly instructive lesson in the semantics of horror and hypocrisy. I despair of that generic old hate-word, “terror”. It long ago became the punctuation mark and signature tune of every facile politician, policeman, journalist and think tank crank in the world.

We Love to Talk of Terror - But After The Munich Shooting...

Terror, terror, terror, terror, terror. Or terrorist, terrorist, terrorist, terrorist, terrorist.

But from time to time, we trip up on this killer cliché, just as we did at the weekend. Here’s how it went. When first we heard that three armed men had gone on a “shooting spree” in Munich, the German cops and the lads and lassies of the BBC, CNN and Fox News fingered the “terror” lever. The Munich constabulary, we were informed, feared this was a “terrorist act”. The local police, the BBC told us, were engaged in an “anti-terror manhunt”.

And we knew what that meant: the three men were believed to be Muslims and therefore “terrorists”, and thus suspected of being members of (or at least inspired by) “ISIS”.

Then it turned out that the three men were in fact only one man – a man who was obsessed with mass killing. He was born in Germany (albeit partly Iranian in origin). And all of a sudden, in every British media and on CNN, the “anti-terror manhunt” became a hunt for a lone “shooter”.

One UK newspaper used the word “shooter” 14 times in a few paragraphs. Somehow, “shooter” doesn’t sound as dangerous as “terrorist”, though the effect of his actions was most assuredly the same. “Shooter” is a code word. It meant: this particular mass killer is not a Muslim.

Now to Kabul, where “ISIS” – yes, the real horrific Sunni Muslim Isis of fearful legend – sent suicide bombers into thousands of Shia Muslims who were protesting on Saturday morning at what appears to have been a pretty routine bit of official discrimination.

The Afghan government had declined to route a new power line through the minority Hazara (Shia) district of the country – a smaller electric cable connection had failed to satisfy the crowds – and had warned the Shia men and women to cancel their protest. The crowds, many of them middle-class young men and women from the capital, ignored this ominous warning and turned up near the presidential palace to pitch tents upon which they had written in Dari “justice and light” and “death to discrimination”.

But death came to them instead, in the form of two “ISIS” men – one of them apparently pushing an ice-cream cart – whose explosives literally blew apart 80 of the Shia Muslims and wounded at another 260.

In a city in which elements of the Afghan government are sometimes called the Taliban government, and in which an Afghan version of the Sunni Muslim “ISIS” is popularly supposed to reside like a bacillus within those same factions, it wasn’t long before the activists who organized the demonstration began to suspect that the authorities themselves were behind the massacre. Of course, we in the West did not hear this version of events. Reports from Kabul concentrated instead on those who denied or claimed the atrocity. The horrid Taliban denied it. The horrid “ISIS” said they did it. And thus all reports centered on the “ISIS” claim of responsibility.

But wait. Not a single report, not one newscast, referred to the Kabul slaughter as an act of “terror”. The Afghan government did. But we did not. We referred to the “suicide bombers” and the “attackers” in much the same way that we referred to the “shooter” in Munich.

Now this is very odd. How come a Muslim can be a terrorist in Europe but a mere “attacker” in south-west Asia? Because in Kabul the killers were not attacking Westerners? Or because they were attacking their fellow Muslims, albeit of the Shia Muslim variety?

I suspect both answers are correct. I can find no other reason for this weird semantic game. For just as the terrorist identity faded away in Munich the moment Ali Sonboly turned out to have more interest in the Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik than the Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi of Mosul, so the real “ISIS” murderers in Kabul completely avoided the stigma of being called terrorists in any shape or form.

This nonsensical nomenclature is going to be further warped – be sure of this – as more and more of the European victims of the attacks in EU nations turn out to be Muslims themselves. The large number of Muslims killed by “ISIS” in Nice was noticed, but scarcely headlined.

The four young Turks shot down by Ali Sonboly were subsumed into the story as an almost routine part of what is now, alas, the routine of mass killing in Europe as well as in the Middle East and Afghanistan.

The identity of Muslims in Europe is therefore fudged if they are victims but of vital political importance if they are killers. But in Kabul, where both victims and murderers were Muslim, their mutual crisis of religious identity is of no interest in the West; the bloodbath is described in anaemic terms. The two attackers “attacked” and the “attacked” were left with 80 dead – more like a football match than a war of terror.

It all comes down to the same thing in the end. If Muslims attack us, they are terrorists. If non-Muslims attack us, they are shooters. If Muslims attack other Muslims, they are attackers.

Scissor out this paragraph and keep it beside you when the killers next let loose – and you’ll be able to work out who the bad guys are before the cops tell you.

Talks during the meeting touched on the situation in Syria and the unique historical relations between the two countries and the importance of developing them in all fields.

He also said that the steadfastness and commitment to the homeland he and the accompanying delegation witnessed during their visit prove that Syrians are moving confidently towards emerging from the crisis and achieving victory over terrorism.

For his part, President al-Assad said that one of the main goals of the unprecedented terrorist attack on Syria is to spread extremist Takfiri mentality and practices to undermine Syria’s diverse and harmonious social fabric which has been one of its distinguishing qualities throughout its history.

Qatar is between two difficult choices قطر ما بين الخيارين الصعبين

Written by Nasser Kandil,

The region enters a new phase that is represented by the development of the first consequences of the failed war which was led by the United States as a culmination of the theory of the Soft war under the title of the Arab Spring, it aimed to renew the regimes which are affiliated to Washington under an  elected Islamic title that is led by the Muslim Brotherhood and which Turkey is responsible for its leading through the project of its new Ottoman, hoping to overthrow the castles which the direct American Israeli wars have failed to overthrow or taming them at their forefronts Syria and Hezbollah. Thus resizing Iran as a regional country that has limited influence on the major issues of the region, and as an owner of a pure nuclear program. From Syria the war failed, and in Syria the forces which were crowded to wage the war against it have been impeded, and through Syria the fate of these forces has begun to be determined, after Washington was certain that it reached to the deadlock. And that the drawing the destinies of Al-Qaeda organizations in its two branches the official and the speculator, Al Nusra and ISIS has been started , where getting rid of them has become a double way to keep the West’s security, and the getting out in the glitter of victory that hides the defeat in the main war,. Now Washington is beating the drums of the war.

It seems that Saudi Arabia is as a line of defense in the soft war which Washington has waged, as Israel, both of them are standing on the bank of the losers, but with chances of getting out of the left escape doors whatever their cost will be, but it is less than the earthquake which affects Turkey, the central base of war which we just witnessed its first result while the consequences and the repercussions are still on the way. Turkey is facing the threats of split, and the civil war, while leaning towards the modest country seems to be less expected losses under the weak economy which is still getting worse and weak, a marginal army which is still getting worse and more marginalized, and a fragmented community which is still being fragmented, but with the decline of the strong country and the strong army it will get more fragmented, but within the series of the losers Qatar is positioned in the list directly after Turkey.

Qatar was not mere a secondary player in the Soft war, but it was in the first attack line where the form of its position and the importance of its satellite channel “Al Jazeera” were two sources for popular, political, and moral balance that enables it from forming the desired violation among the ranks of the forces and the backgrounds of the movements and the countries of the resistance axis, as Qatar has made use of the rising of the successes of the soft war and became who formed the governments in Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia, and anticipated to play a role of who will draw the future of Syria, as it has made use of its ambiguous position in the trenches of the resistance’s axis since the invasion of Iraq till the beginning of the Arab Spring, so it gained prizes as the size of sponsoring the settlements and the reconciliations in Lebanon and Sudan. It seems that Qatar has pushed the prince the father in the first descending of war with the resilience and the stability of Syria towards losing the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Tunisia in front of the difficult choices after the Turkish earthquake.

It is no longer possible for Qatar to depend on its money or its satellite channel, while it is surrounded in the time of the setbacks and the settlements with two countries, one is being welcomed to be positioned where it was before the Soft war, as a country of settlements and reconciliations, here Iran is positioning but this time with different conditions. The promotion of Qatar for the allies from Russia to Syria is not so easy, unless there is something attractive in the Qatari policy, since it has the modest size of population and geography, so the least cost is to disobey the Saudi leadership of the Gulf countries. On the other bank there is hidden Saudi lust that ambushed of Qatar to revenge from the game in which Qatar has gone too far in it at the expense of its bigger neighbor, it advanced the ranks without considering the return line. Saudi Arabia is the loser player in Yemen, and the seeker for a settlement and the loser which lost its papers in Iraq, moreover, it loses its bases in Syria, so there is nothing left in front of it as a moral compensation and possibly material after the Turkish earthquake but to aspire to join Qatar, not just getting the obedience of its leaders. Here it seems that the shield of the peninsula through an arrangement that is related to Bahrain is Saudi opportunity, especially that the Americans between the cost of protecting Qatar and the cheap cost which the Saudis will ask to facilitate the settlements of the new phase will not make out of protecting Qatar their issue.

Qatar is between the choices of asking the Iranian protection and the willingness to be put under the Saudi wing, the Prince has left so the emirate has gained a temporal opportunity, today the Prince is leaving in favor of a prince who is assigned by the Saudis, or the emirate will fall if Doha does not accelerate to make a quantitative positioning in at least the Gulf trench of the Iran.

– تدخل المنطقة زمناً جديداً يتمثل بتبلور أولى نتائج الحرب الفاشلة التي قادتها أميركا كتتويج لنظرية الحرب الناعمة، تحت مسمّى «الربيع العربي»، والتي كانت تستهدف تجديد شباب الأنظمة التابعة لواشنطن بعنوان إسلامي منتخَب يقوده الإخوان المسلمون وتتولى زعامته تركيا بمشروع عثمانيتها الجديدة، أملاً بإسقاط القلاع التي فشلت الحروب الأميركية الإسرائيلية المباشرة بإسقاطها أو ترويضها، وفي طليعتها سورية وحزب الله، وبالتالي تحجيم إيران كدولة إقليمية محدودة التأثير في ملفات الإقليم الكبرى، وصاحبة مشروع نووي مبتسر، بلا دسم ولا أظافر. ومن سورية بدأ سقوط الحرب، وفي سورية تعثرت القوى التي حشدت لخوضها، وعبر سورية بدأ يتقرّر مصير هذه القوى، بعدما تيقّنت واشنطن من بلوغها الطريق المسدود، ويبدأ رسم المصائر من تنظيم «القاعدة» بفرعَيْه الرسمي والمضارب، «النصرة» و«داعش»، حيث صار التخلص منهما طريقاً مزدوجاً لحفظ أمن الغرب والخروج ببريق نصر يغطي الهزيمة في الحرب الرئيسية. وها هي واشنطن تقرع طبول الحرب.

تبدو السعودية كخط دفاع في الحرب الناعمة التي خاضتها واشنطن، مثلها مثل «إسرائيل»، تقفان على ضفة الخاسرين، لكن مع فرص الخروج من أبواب النجاة التي تبقى مهما بلغت كلفتها أقلّ وطأة من الزلزال الذي بدأ يعصف بتركيا، القاعدة المركزية للحرب، والذي لم نشهد إلا موجته الأولى ولا زالت التداعيات والتردّدات على الطريق، وفيما تواجه تركيا مخاطر التشقق، والحرب الأهلية، ويبدو الانكفاء نحو الدولة المتواضعة أقلّ الخسائر المتوقعة، في ظلّ اقتصاد ضمُر ولا يزال يضمر، وينتظره الأسوأ، وجيش همّش ولا يزال يهمّش وينتظره الأسوأ، ومجتمع تشظّى ولا يزال يتشظّى ومع تراجع الدولة القوية والجيش القوي سيزيد تشظياً، لكن في سلسلة الخاسرين تتمركز قطر في اللائحة بعد تركيا مباشرة.

– لم تكن قطر في الحرب الناعمة مجرد لاعب ثانوي، بل كانت في خط الهجوم الأول، حيث شكل موقفها ووزن قناتها الفضائية «الجزيرة»، مصدرَيْن لرصيد شعبي وسياسي ومعنوي، مكّنها من تشكيل طليعة الاختراق المطلوب في صفوف قوى وبيئة حركات ودول محور المقاومة. ومثلما قطفت قطر الموجة الأولى من الصعود في نجاحات الحرب الناعمة فصارت مَن يشكل الحكومات في مصر وليبيا وتونس، ويتطلّع إلى لعب دور من سيرسم مستقبل سورية، كما كانت قد قطفت ثمار موقعها الملتبس في خنادق محور المقاومة منذ غزو العراق حتى بدء «الربيع العربي»، فنالت جوائز بحجم رعاية التسويات والمصالحات في لبنان والسودان، تبدو قطر التي دفعت الأمير الأب في أول موجة هبوط للحرب، مع صمود وثبات سورية وفي الطريق إلى خسارة الإخوان المسلمين للحكم في مصر وتونس، أمام الخيارات الصعب وجودياً بعد الزلزال التركي.

– لم يعُد ممكناً لقطر الاستقواء بمالها ولا بقناتها الفضائية، وهي محاطة في زمن التراجعات والتسويات، بدولتين، واحدة تفتح لها ذراعيها لتتموضع، حيث كانت قبل الحرب الناعمة دولة تسويات ومصالحات، وهنا تقف إيران لكن هذه المرة بشروط مختلفة، فتسويق قطر لدى الحلفاء من روسيا إلى سورية ليس بالأمر السهل، ما لم يكن في السياسة القطرية ما يُغْري، وهي صاحبة الحجم المتواضع في السكان والجغرافيا، وأقلّ الأثمان شق عصا الطاعة على القيادة السعودية لدول الخليج. وعلى ضفة ثانية تتربّص بقطر شهوة سعودية دفينة للانتقام من اللعبة التي تمادت فيها قطر على حساب جارها الأكبر وتقدّمت الصفوف بلا حساب لخط الرجعة، والسعودية اللاعب الخاسر في اليمن والباحث عن تسوية، واللاعب الذي خسر أوراقه في العراق، ويتجه لخسارة قواعده في سورية، ليس أمامها من تعويض معنوي وربما مادي، مع الزلزال التركي، سوى أن تضع عينها على ضمّ قطر، وليس مجرد أخذ الطاعة من قادتها، وهنا يبدو درع الجزيرة بترتيب مرتبط بالبحرين فرصة سعودية، خصوصاً أنّ الأميركيين في المفاضلة بين كلفة حماية قطر والثمن البسيط الذي سيطلبه السعوديون لتسهيل تسويات المرحلة الجديدة، لن يجعلوا من حماية قطر قضيتهم.

– قطر بين خيارَي طلب الحماية الإيرانية، أو الاستعداد للانضواء تحت الجناح السعودي. رحل الأمير فنالت الإمارة فرصة مؤقتة، واليوم يرحل الأمير لحساب أمير يعيّنه السعوديون، أو تسقط الإمارة، ما لم تسارع الدوحة لتموضع نوعي في خندق إيران الخليجي على الأقلّ.
