Iran’s Contributions to the Fight against Terrorism Underscored


DAMASCUS, (ST)_ The victory over terrorism in Syria and Iraq and the Iran’s steadfastness in the nuclear file foiled the scheme drawn for the region as to fracture its states, violate its sovereignty and control its independent decision, underscored H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad.

Receiving the visiting Chairman of Iran’s Strategic Council on Foreign Relations, Kamal Kharrazi and an accompanying delegation, President Assad pointed out that the support of Iran to Syria in all fields, particularly in the fight against terrorismcontributed to the successes achieved by the Syrian Arab Army against terrorists.

President Assad added that the brute Turkish aggression against the Syrian City of Afrin cannot be separated from the policy pursued by the Turkish regime since the first day of the crisis in Syria, based basically on Turkey‘s support for terrorism and terrorist organization of all colors and names.

Mr. Kharrazi congratulated President Assad and the Syrian People for the consequent victories against terrorists, and the last of which is through the restoration of Abu Duhur Airport, asserting that such victories would be crowned with the more of accomplishments at the political or the military level.

 Mr. Kharrazi underscored the importance of continued exchange of viewpoints and the close standing cooperation between Syria and Iran as to encounter foreign schemes.

How about the “fact checkers” and apologists look into why the White Helmets recycled an image claiming to show a victim of “Russian airstrikes” after having previously used the same image before Russia even began bombing ISIS in Syria.

-Eva Bartlett

*republished at: The Indicter

In part 1, I wrote of the Guardian’s quite unoriginal Russophobic story cheering for al-Qaeda’s rescuers, the White Helmets. In this second part, I expose other (some serial) offenders, guilty of disinformation on the White Helmets, and war propaganda on Syria to a degree that Goebbels would be envious. They are further guilty of ignoring the sentiments of the overwhelming majority of Syrians who call a spade a spade, a terrorist a terrorist.

The Channel 4 “Fact Check” Card

In The Guardian article in question, the author began by linking to a Channel 4 News smear piece on myself which had nothing to do with the point she was asserting—whether or not the group had al-Qaeda ties—but which was issued a year ago with the sole intent to cherry-pick my words to discredit myself. Such non sequitur arguments are commonly used by those who cannot backup their statements with facts and who wish to, instead, deflect and mislead.

Had the Guardian had honest intentions regarding the White Helmets article, they might have actually investigated the many members of the White Helmets with ties to al-Qaeda and affiliated extremists. Here is but one example showing the allegiance of over 60 White Helmets members to al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.

Regarding the Channel 4 smear which The Guardian’s own hatchet piece linked to, it followed my speaking on a December 2016 panel (over 50 minutes, with question period), with three others, including a lawyer and the head of the US Peace Council, in a press room of the United Nations.

In that panel, we spoke of many important issues, including: the illegality of this war on Syria; the need to lift the devastating sanctions on Syria; the statement of unity among over 200 organizations in the US and internationally in solidarity with the Syrian government’s fight against foreign intervention; the Syrian reconciliation movement; and the heinous acts committed against Syrian civilians by terrorists, whether from the FSA or Nour al-Deen al-Zenki or ISIS or other.

I spoke for thirteen minutes, noting that my trips to Syria have been self-funded, and that I’ve traveled widely, interacting one-on-one with Syrians, and seen wide support for their army and leadership.

I highlighted how the over 1.5 million people of Aleppo had endured sieges and the attacks of terrorists groups, which killed nearly 11,000 civilians by end of 2016, and noted being present when on November 3, 2016, terrorist attacks on Aleppo which killed 18 and injured over 200. I cited being present during the November 4 mortar attacks by extremist factions on one of the humanitarian crossroads.


Photo by Eva Bartlett, July 2017, Aleppo countryside. See my photo essay on Aleppo and countryside.

Other points which I addressed include:

-The words of Syrians who in October 2016 escaped terrorists’ rule in an eastern area of Aleppo, noting that the “moderates” deprived them of food and imposed extremist ideology on the people.

-The unity I saw in Aleppo, between Sunni Muslims and Christians, rejecting the external sectarianism, and rejecting the corporate narrative that Sunnis in Syria are against Bashar al-Assad, and the support of civilians for their army.

-The al-Quds hospital which was not “destroyed”, not reduced “to rubble”, as per Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and as repeated by most corporate media. Admittedly, it was lexiconally-incorrect of me to have stated that the Quds hospital had not been attacked: I cannot prove it has never been lightly or otherwise attacked. The correct wording should have been “not destroyed”, and in fact this June I confirmed that the Quds hospital remained standing, intact as it was when I mentioned it in that December 2016 panel.

However, as I mentioned in December, the Dabeet maternity hospital in Aleppo was internally-destroyed by a terrorist bombing, to the silence of most media. I went there and spoke with the director, who confirmed that three women died the attack in which freedom-bringers fired a missile that landed on a car parked outside the hospital, exploding that car. The director also noted that a week later, terrorists’ mortars hit the roof of the hospital, destroying the roof and injuring construction workers.

In the panel, I also mentioned the Kindi hospital which was destroyed by al-Nusra truck bombings, a rather significant fact, given that it was the largest and best cancer treatment hospital in the region. [Incidentally, I met with Kindi’s former director in November 2016, who spoke of international silence at the destruction of his hospital. While speaking, a terrorist-fired mortar landed outside of the University hospital where we spoke.]

I presented the words of the director of Aleppo’s Medical Association, who told me that in contrast to corporate media’s assertions of “last doctors” and “last pediatricians”, there were over 4,100 active and registered doctors in Aleppo, including over 800 specialists, including 180 pediatricians.

Selective Cricitism, Whitewashing Crimes

Out of that lengthy December 2016 panel, the sole issue that Channel 4 cherry-picked was a remark I made in the question period following, on the issue of exploitation of children in war propaganda—or more specifically, whether one girl has been exploited repeatedly.

I will note that while I cannot prove definitively that one of the girls I mentioned (or those which Channel 4 piece assumed I referred to) have been used in staged videos, it is entirely feasiblethat she/they and other children have been, and is entirely worthy of serious investigative research, particularly given the western-funded, terrorist-affiliated nature of the various sources.

For example, on the issue of staged media, as I wrote in June 2017 (emphasis added):

“In December 2016, filmmakers in Egypt were arrested in the process of staging an Aleppo video with two children: the girl was meant to look injured, and the boy was to vilify both Russia and Syria.”

My article detailed the misuse of a Lebanese music video scene to claim it was Aleppo; and BBC’s endorsement of the November 2014 ‘Syrian hero boy’ clip as definitely being in Syria, “probably on the regime frontlines,” although it was filmed in Malta by Norwegian filmmakers.”

In June 2017, I also wrote about one famous boy, the “boy in the ambulance”, exploited including by Channel 4 News and the Guardian. When this June I went to Aleppo and met the boy and his father, the latter confirmed that the story pushed in corporate media was false, and that media had exploited his son. As it turns out, Mohammad Daqneesh supports the Syrian army, and was disgusted by the exploitation of his son, by media and the terrorists themselves.

Further, there is the White Helmets video in which “rescuers” seem to be fake-rescuing children, employing practices which would kill them, as outlined by Professor Marcello Ferrada de Noli, head of Swedish Doctors for Human Rights (SWEDHR). His March 2017 article noted the opinions of Swedish medical doctors, specialists, who asserted that:

“the life-saving procedures seen in the film are incorrect – in fact life-threatening – or seemingly fake, including simulated resuscitation techniques being used on already lifeless children.”

He cites a specialist in paediatrics:

“After examination of the video material, I found that the measures inflicted upon those children, some of them lifeless, are bizarre, non-medical, non-lifesaving, and even counterproductive in terms of life-saving purposes of children”.

And a Swedish medical doctor and general practitioner:

“If not already dead, this injection would have killed the child!”

His follow-up report noted:

“The new findings…demonstrate that the main highlighted ‘life-saving‘ procedure on the infant shown in the second video of the sequence was faked. Namely, no substance (e.g. adrenaline) was injected into the child while the ‘medic’ or doctor introduced the syringe-needle in a simulated intracardiac-injection manoeuvre…”

Recall the incubator babies story sobbed by the fake-nurse daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the US (endorsed and propagated by Amnesty International), which preceded and had a role in swaying public opinion prior to the 1991 US/UK war on Iraq. Regarding the White Helmets video in question, de Noli noted it was,

“shown at the UN Security Council April 16, 2015. After that meeting, US Ambassador Samantha Powers declared, ‘I saw no one in the room without tears. If there was a dry eye in the room, I didn’t see it’.

Ensuing, just four days after, on April 20, 2015, CNN broadcasted a news-program reproducing segments taken from exactly the same videos and propagated for the No-Fly Zone on behalf of “the Syrian doctors” campaigning.

This horrifying syringe-children example, and the above-listed incidents of faked footage and exploitation of children in war propaganda, are more than enough reason to warrant serious investigations into other videos produced by the White Helmets (and those of like western-funded “opposition media” in Syria, including formerly the Aleppo Media Centre [AMC]).

Channel 4 Team Mucked the Facts

Regarding the Channel 4 “fact check”, Patrick Worrall got his facts wrong in his very second sentence, which read:

“She writes a blog for the state-funded Russian media outlet Russia Today.”

Alas, the Channel 4 team didn’t do the most elementary investigative research to see where exactly my supposed “blog” on RT was. Had Channel 4 followed the link, they would find the opinion section dubbed “Op Edge”, to which 19 writers currently contribute, many of whom also contribute to numerous other publications. Many papers have such opinion sections, including The Guardian, which describes the entries there as “opinion pieces” and not “blog posts”.

Channel 4 also described the UN panel in question as “organised by the Syrian mission to the UN”. In fact, I initiated contact with the Syrian mission to request that I do what the US Peace Council had done in August 2016: to present some of what I had seen and heard in Syria. The Syrian mission did arrange for the room, as per my request. Worrall’s wording is to imply that I was merely invited to speak, whereas in fact I requested to speak, since corporate media won’t give voices like mine a fair platform.

In an attempt to legitimize the narrative of White Helmets rescuing babies or people from rubble, Channel 4 wrote that I had reported a case of someone buried alive in Gaza in 2009 who (I wrote a few weeks after his injury) emerged with “only a mere scar at his left eyebrow”.


*Image provided by Abu Qusay.

Yet, my 2009 article clearly portrays a man with thick blood streaming down his face, who (as he explained) couldn’t walk on his own, and by his own testimony passed out and woke up in hospital. In contrast, the girl in question (number two in Channel 4’s article), supposedly buried, seemingly has no visible blood on her face, and in spite of having been pulled by her ponytail after being buried by rubble, is alert and conscious. Not such an apt comparison, Channel 4. It indeed begs the question of just how injured she was.

Of girl number 2, Channel 4 wrote:

“Someone would have had to have buried a screaming child up to their chest in rubble and carefully assembled a large amount of heavy wreckage around and on top of her…”

Indeed. It’s funny how the White Helmets did exactly that in their “mannequin challenge” video, extracting from rubble a man who appears unable to walk… later photographs show the actor standing with his “rescuers”.


Further, the video presented by Channel 4 regarding the ponytail-grabbed girl in no way shows “a large amount of heavy wreckage around and on top of her”. Rather, it shows a child waist-deep in rubble, “rescuers” wiping rubble here and there, and finally the child extracted (video strangely cuts the extraction point, why is that?), the rescuer running to and beyond the waiting ambulance.

I challenge Channel 4 to find any actual doctor, medic or rescuer that would pull a child supposedly buried in rubble by her ponytail, knowing that any damage to the spine can be fatal or leave the victim paralyzed.

Terrorist-Affiliated Sources Not Credible, Even If Reuters

Later in the article, Channel 4 refers to “a Reuters photographer on the ground at one of the incidents, who was satisfied that the events he was recording were genuine.” Given that the photographer in question, Abdalrhman Ismail, was embedded in al-Qaeda areas, litters his Facebook posts with pro-“rebel” and anti-Assad propaganda, and has selfies with at least one of the member of the Nour al-Din al-Zenki terrorists who beheaded a Palestinian boy in 2016, his credibility and impartiality is shot, to say the least.

retuers ismail

*Abdalrhman Ismail on left, Zenki child-beheader centre.

Ismail also participated in the propaganda that the Quds hospital in Sukkari, Aleppo had been destroyed by airstrikes, which it was not.

Channel 4 cited me as saying that the White Helmets can be found carrying guns and standing on dead bodies of Syrian soldiers, but did not address these points, nor did they address the curious issue of the obscene amount of funds these “volunteers” have received. What strange omissions. Channel 4 also did not address my point about internal refugees who fled not Assad, as claimed in corporate media, but the terrorists themselves, and how these internal refugees are given housing, food, education and medical care by the Syrian government. Not important?

Clearly Channel 4 reports only that which supports the “rebels” and “revolution” narrative, whitewashing the terrorism not only of the extremists but also the governments funding and supporting them, and governments imposing sanctions on Syria.

Incidentally, Channel 4 (as I wrote) produced a report embedded with the Nour al-Din al-Zinki faction, who Channel 4 deemed “moderates,” although in July prior they had savagely beheaded Abdullah Issa. Not initially a problem for Channel 4, they did later remove the incriminating video.” This is the same Channel 4 whose reporter, when returned to Aleppo after its liberation, refused to “get into history” about his lies and war propaganda. In other words: Channel 4’s Krishnan Guru Murthy lied throughout 2016, and when confronted did not even have the dignity and integrity to admit he was wrong.

Snopes: Factually-Challenged

In December 2016, the self-professed “fact check” website Snopes also produced a smear piece full of logical fallacies on me. Interestingly, had they not, I might not have come across their article whitewashing al-Qaeda’s rescuers.

Snopes’ Bethania Palma opened with this teaser (emphasis added):

“The idea that victims of mass tragedies are ‘recycled’ is a common theme among conspiracy theorists, but there are international reports and footage of the Al Quds Hospital attack.”

In addition to the unoriginal use of “conspiracy theorists”, two different issues were conflated: That of whether people are being used in staged videos, and that of the al-Quds hospital “attack”. The conclusion following “but” has absolutely nothing to do with the first part of the sentence. This is a straw man argument, and is designed to mislead.

Snopes continued with things like “outlandish-sounding claims” and that I believe “international media are conspiring to fabricate stories of hospital bombings,” and that I refer to “all factions fighting President Bashar al Assad’s forces as terrorists.”

As it turned out, my outlandish-sounding claims were true. The al-Quds hospital was not “destroyed”, the “last doctors” theme was a propaganda ploy, as was the “last pediatrician in Aleppo,” and many other ruses. Indeed, international media did conspire to fabricate stories, such as that on Omran Daqneesh, and also on Bana al-Abed.

The international media did conspire to claim that Assad was starving civilians in Aleppo, which was laid to rest when media actually spoke to civilians (and not terrorist mouthpieces) after Aleppo’s liberation.

The international media also conspired along the same lines regarding Madaya. I went to Madayathis June and learned the same sordid realities (starvation, torture, imprisonment) that civilians endured in Aleppo, due to al-Qaeda and affiliated extremists. The international media continue to conspire, with the same tired claims.

Snopes stated, regarding Syria’s 2014 Presidential election: “Voting in that election only took place in government-held territories.”

False. Voting occurred also in neighbouring Lebanon, where I witnessed the first of two days of mass-turnout of Syrians to vote. Syrians in countries like Canada which has closed the Syrian embassy flew to Damascus airport just for the right to vote.

Snopes also neglected to mention that, in their efforts to bring “democracy” to Syria, “moderates” shelled voting stations throughout Syria on June 3, firing 151 shells on Damascus alone, killing at least 5 and maiming 33 Syrians,” in Damascus, as I wrote in 2014.

As for whether forces fighting the Syrian army and civilians are terrorists, I have heard this repeatedly from civilians in Syria themselves, like this civilian in Aleppo in June 2017. Whether FSA, al-Qaeda, al-Zenki or another shade of extremist, they all commit acts of terrorism against Syrian civilians.

Snopes then strangely pointed out the following, as if I would refute it: “Bartlett has a statement on her own web site:

‘I support Syria against a ‘civil’ war that is funded, armed and planned by the western powers and their regional allies with a view to wiping out all resistance to imperialism in the Middle East…’.”

Indeed, I did have it on my blog, and one can still see it among my Facebook cover photos. Thanks for sharing that, Snopes! Incidentally, Qatar’s former PM admitted this as well, noting Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey had been coordinating with America and sending weapons to militants since events began in 2011. What a dang conspiracy theorist the former Qatari Prime Minister is! Almost as conspiratorial as the former French Foreign Minister, Roland Dumas, who noted (video here):

“I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business. I met with top British officials, who confessed to me that they were preparing something in Syria.

This was in Britain not in America. Britain was organizing an invasion of rebels into Syria. They even asked me, although I was no longer minister for foreign affairs, if I would like to participate.

Naturally, I refused, I said I’m French, that doesn’t interest me….This operation goes way back. It was prepared, preconceived and planned.”

Otherwise, in their “fact check” Snopes repeated points I’ve already addressed above, including about the Quds hospital, which Snopes neglected to mention that MSF had said was “destroyed”. Thus, the explanation that it was somehow risen from the rubble and working anew in September is simply illogical. It was “destroyed”, remember? Reduced “to rubble”, said MSF.


How Neutral is Snopes?

Snopes completely avoided investigating my mention that the White Helmets “can be found carrying guns and standing on the dead bodies of Syrian soldiers”, although she did cite me as having said it.

Near the beginning of her article, Snopes’ Palma mentioned that I was billed as an “independent Canadian journalist,” immediately following with: “She is also a contributor at RT, a news site funded by the Russian government.”

As noted in part one (and also on my blog), I contribute to a number of sites, RT just one among them, and do so precisely because these independent websites, and RT, allow me to write exactly what I believe, with zero censorship.

In any case, is Snopes as independent, neutral and apolitical as claimed to be, and as an impartial fact checking group must be?

June 2016 article (albeit by the Daily Caller) looked at the politics of some of Snopes’ “fact checkers”, noting “Snopes’ “fact-checking” looks more like playing defense for prominent Democrats like Hillary Clinton.”

Another article noted Snopes’ “spinning for (Hillary) Clinton”, as well as occasions where Snopes patently lied.

Forbes had an interesting article on the matter, looking at a sensationalistic Daily Mail exposethat one of Snopes’ founders “embezzled $98,000 of company money and spent it on ‘himself and prostitutes’.” While the Forbes author was initially sceptical of the Daily Mail piece, after corresponding with Snopes’ founder David Mikkelson, he became sceptical of the site’s lack of transparency and the competency of fact checkers.

The myth of Snopes as a reliable, neutral, fact checker is as dead as the myth of the White Helmets as neutral, volunteer, rescuers in Syria.

Canadian Yellow Journalist

Following in the footsteps of Snopes and Channel 4 was a poor attempt at discrediting me by a Canadian corporate hack. I am addressing this feeble smear article solely because Agnès Gruda was an apologist for the terrorists which destroyed Libya, and silenced honest reporting on Iraq.

In January 2017, Montreal, Canada, I was part of a panel on Syria. During the shared panelI spoke for over half an hour, highlighting the need to question the veracity of media reports and of videos produced by the al-Qaeda affiliated White Helmets and other compromised Western-funded sources based solely in terrorist-occupied areas.

Following the question period, two Canadian journalists approached demanding an interview, camera already filming. One of the journalists, Alexandra Szacka of Radio Canada, had been persistently messaging me two weeks prior, expressing what she claimed was an interest in hearing my perspective on Syria. A look at her Twitter feed revealed her real interests and allegiances: towing the Western narrative on Syria.

alexandra and agnes while i mention carla del ponte and rebels sarin khan al assal

Agnès Gruda and Alexandra Szacka while I refer to Carla del Ponte’s comments regarding the complicity of  “rebels” in the Khan al Assal chemical weapons attack.

However, based on the request of a mutual contact to grant the interview, I did. Prior to agreeing to the interview with Szacka and sister Agnès Gruda, of La Presse, I pointed out that for the past hour I had given numerous examples of corporate media fabrications, lies, and obfuscations. They pledged to be different. Gruda lied.

Since much of the content of Gruda’s piece is unsurprisingly very similar to prior smears, I’ll address only points not already made, noting, that Gruda also unsurprisingly failed to address a single one of the numerous points I made in that January panel.

As for the December 2016 panel at the UN, Gruda, in her haste to taint the event, wrote that “it was held in fact inside the offices of the Syrian delegation to the UN.”


Screenshot from Gruda’s article.

False. The panel was held in an official press room at the United Nations Headquarters, in an entirely different building complex than (and two blocks away from) the offices of the Syrian mission to the UN.

UN press room location

She correctly, however, stated that I’ve never set foot on the “rebel” side. I’m not keen on being beheaded. Veteran journalist Patrick Cockburn even wrote:

They are not there for the very good reason that Isis imprisons and beheads foreigners while Jabhat al-Nusra, until recently the al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, is only a shade less bloodthirsty and generally holds them for ransom. … all the evidence is that these can only operate in east Aleppo under license from the al-Qaeda-type groups.”

But anyway, when was Gruda in Syria…?

With this sort of “never set foot” on the terrorists’ side comment, war propagandists like Gruda negate the very real suffering of Syrians in government-secured areas being targeted by mortars, rockets, car and suicide bombings and more. It is disingenuous to imply that by visiting the many and vast government-secured areas in Syria one cannot get an accurate idea of the will of Syrian people and their experiences.

Going to population hubs like Damascus, Latakia, Tartous, and Homs, one encounters Syrians from all over the country, from all faiths (see examples from my extensive travels in summer 2016), some of the at least 7 million internal refugees.

In Latakia alone, there are over 1 million internal refugees, including many who have come from areas of Aleppo formerly occupied by militants and terrorists. One can hear their testimonies by visiting shelters for refugees, or even encountering these displaced people in commercial areas, including many internal refugees who have left everything behind, fleeing the terror of western-backed ‘rebels’ for the safety of government-secured areas.

Regarding my four Aleppo  visits in 2016, the areas and routes we took involved frequent potential exposure to ‘rebel’-terrorist sniper fire or shelling.

Had Gruda been present on the November 2nd visit to extremely dangerous areas, in some instances less than 100 metres or even less than 50 metres from al-Qaeda snipers, she would have overheard the bombastic corporate journalists (who would later distort truth on their visit) complaining that they didn’t feel comfortable visiting those areas—areas where we were seeing first-hand the effects of terrorists’ bombings on civilians, and where we were speaking with brave Syrians who had refused to leave, victims of terrorists’ sniping.

Gruda wrote that I relied heavily on this particular trip with mostly corporate journalists (I was interested to see how they would spin truth in their reports) when speaking of Aleppo. In fact, I spoke of my own completely independent visit in July, subsequent independent visit in August, and my other independent visit in November, returning to the city roughly a week after I’d been there with the delegation.

aleppo visits discussed in montreal talk

Screenshot of folder used in my January presentation.

Finally, and again predictably, Gruda attempted to imply I am financed by Russia or Syria, was sceptical that readers who appreciate my efforts donate to me. On that note, please follow me on Patreon or support me via Paypal. This is what truly enables me to survive while fully committing my time to anti-war, anti-occupation, anti-nuke-the-DPRK efforts.

However, on Gruda and her employer, Canadian journalist and author, Yves Englerasked:

“…Does Gruda describe herself as an employee of the billionaire Desmarais family that is heavily involved in Canadian and other countries’ politics? How does Gruda describe journalists who’ve written for Al Jazeera, which is owned by a Qatari monarchy that has backed armed opposition to Assad? Or how about the BBC, CBC and other media outlets owned by governments?

Or, does she mention journalists’ ties when they have freelanced for Radio Canada International, a “Canadian government propaganda arm”? Initially focused on Eastern Bloc countries, beginning in 1945 RCI beamed radio abroad as part of “the psychological war against communism”, according to external minister Lester Pearson. Early on External Affairs was given a copy of the scripts used by commentators and it responded to criticism of Canada’s international policies. Into the 1990s RCI’s funding came directly from External Affairs. Highlighting Russia’s “propaganda system” to a Canadian audience without mentioning the one at home indicates either a journalist’s ignorance or that she is part of it.

I’d say the latter.

Gruda’s Track Record of Supporting Terrorism

While Gruda fails in the ethics department, she is at least consistent: she also cheerled the destruction of Libya, and Iraq prior, romanticizing the militants in Libya as “rebels”, even posing while holding the weapon of one.


Gruda: “No journalist worthy of the name will say to support any regime whatsoever, or any faction whatsoever. And will not show the symbols of one or the other part …”

Jihadi Agnès, in her article, took issue with my wearing a bracelet with the Syrian flag on it.

But I guess her Brega, Libya, gun-toting pose in a “rebel”-terrorist area is completely professional.

agnes rifle

A very neutral and professional Agnès Gruda in Libya 2011.

More revealingly, Jooneed Khan, an international affairs journalist for 40 years who formerly worked at La Presse, told me of Gruda’s censorship of his honest reporting.

“I spent 3 months of 2003 in Iraq, before, during and after the bombing and the occupation. I was in Baghdad in April 2003 reporting for La Presse. On the day following the toppling of the statue of Saddam in Firdaus Square, I wrote a 1,400 word piece saying Iraqis did not welcome the GIs as ‘liberators’, that armed check-points were going up all over the city, that tension was rising. She, and others, massacred my text, cut in down to 400 words, made it say the opposite of what it said, and published it with my by-line. In 40 years that is the worst case of censorship I met at the hands of my bosses.

Gruda’s Sectarian Slant

Had Gruda wished to speak with Syrians from greater Aleppo, I did offer to connect her with actual accredited doctors working in Aleppo, as well as Sunnis in the city. But, Gruda seemed to prefer approaching her ‘reporting’ from a sectarian perspective and only wished to speak with Christians at the January Montreal event, though many Sunni Syrians were present.

A Bossalinie Armanazi who attended my lecture later messaged me to say that although Gruda was encouraged to interview him, a Sunni, Gruda suddenly didn’t have time. Armanazi wrote to me:

“She had a storyline and needed the right cast with specific characteristics to fit the story. Apparently, I got disqualified because my religious sect and political views did not fit in the story she wants to tell.

I am among the Sunni Muslims that do not support the so-called ‘revolution’ and stand with the Syrian state in addressing and resolving this conflict. I, like many others, did not see any positive change coming out from the so-called rebels, which are nothing but radicalized barbaric groups flowing from all over the world and given political, logistical, financial and weaponry support to fight on behalf of another group of states/kingdoms that have offered nothing but destruction.”

Indeed, the panel’s organizers confirmed that they had encouraged both Agnès Gruda and her sister Alexandra Szacka to interview the many Sunnis present that day. They were not interested.

What Gruda, Channel 4, Snopes, and others issuing smear pieces have done is to concoct articles which negate all valid points I have made, in their attempt to discredit me, and others like me who have gone to Syria and shared the voices and realities of Syrians.

When any of these sites make an error, or lie, (and they do), what is the response? A simple retraction in passing that few will notice anyway. Please recall that the BBC claimed a photo taken in Iraq depicted Houla, Syria. When called out by the photographer, the BBC issued an non-retraction statement of having included that the photo could not be independently verified.

Also recall that the BBC was filming in an area held by extremists, including al-Qaeda and ISIS, and in December 2013 normalized the terrorist group as a “Syrian rebel” group. Robert Stuart has exposed the BBC’s lies in “Fabrication in BBC Panorama ‘Saving Syria’s Children’”. These are not one-offs, these are examples of systematic war propaganda.

When flooded with over 1000 messages/emails in December 2016, I did at least manage to see and address the email from a Toronto-based Buzzfeed writer in December 2016. His smear piece was cookie cutter perfect.

More will follow, and they will follow the CIA memo, and other smear tactics. But after this rebuttal, I’ve got better things to do with my time.

Deconstructing the White Helmets’ Apologists

Regarding the issue so covered up by these various authors–the White Helmets, al-Qaeda’s rescuers–I refer now to a number of excellent articles debunking of the recent Guardian story.

Veteran journalist John Pilger described the White Helmets as “a complete propaganda construct.

On November 30, 2016, Gareth Porter wrote of the White Helmets, focusing on one particular incident which blew their credibility. He wrote:

“…The highly political role played by the White Helmets in relation to foreign press coverage was dramatically demonstrated after the attack on a Syrian Red Crescent truck convoy in the rebel held area of Urum al-Kubra, just west of Aleppo on September 19. The assault took place immediately after a ceasefire agreed to by Russia, the U.S. and the Syrian government was shattered by a deadly U.S. air attack on Syrian army forces battling ISIS around the city of Deir Ezzor on September 17.

…In the days following the attack, news media coverage relied heavily on accounts provided by the White Helmets. The head of the organization in Aleppo, Ammar Al-Selmo, was offering them a personal on-the-scene account. Selmo’s version of the story turned out to be riddled with falsehoods; however, many journalists approached it without an ounce of skepticism, and have continued to rely on him for information on the ongoing battles in and around Aleppo.”

Porter went on to detail Selmo’s self-contradicting claims, as well as the contradictory statements of another White Helmet member, Urum al-Kubra WH director Hussein Badawi, whose own words contradicted those of Selmo’s claims.

More recently, Porter commented in an interview on RT:

“The White Helmets have been lionized by the news media, and treated as simply heroes of the Syrian war. There has been no criticism really allowed in the media of the White Helmets, in terms of other aspects of what they do that may be less attractive. They have been assigned the job of basically being the propaganda arm of those authorities (al-Qaeda). …It’s a matter of public record. It’s not denied that this organization gets its funding from the United States, from the UK, in the 10s of millions of dollars.”

In his November 2016 article, Porter noted:

“The uncritical reliance on claims by the White Helmets without any effort to investigate their credibility is yet another telling example of journalistic malpractice by media outlets with a long record of skewing coverage of conflicts toward an interventionist narrative.

The Guardian, Channel 4, Snopes, and Agnès Gruda are indeed guilty of journalistic malpractice, and war propaganda of the most heinous kind.

Tel Aviv’s Syria Gambit

Darko Lazar

20-01-2018 | 08:01

The outcome of the latest “Israeli” attack on Syrian military outposts near Damascus is not exactly what the leadership in Tel Aviv was hoping for when it decided to carry out what was, by most accounts, a sophisticated operation.


During the January 9 attack, the “Israeli” Air Force deployed four state-of-the-art F-35 stealth multirole fighter jets, which fired a total of five missiles at weapons storage facilities and anti-aircraft batteries in Syria’s Qutayfeh.

The jets fired the missiles from relatively safe distances in the hope of avoiding Syrian anti-aircraft weapons, including the Pantsir-S1 and the S-200.

Although the F-35s are limited by their high fuel consumption, the “Israeli” pilots compensated by utilizing all available electronic combat systems against both the S-400 radar division stationed at Russia’s Khmeimim Air Base and Syrian air defenses.

The “Israelis” had reportedly managed to temporarily ‘blind’ the Syrians by using a number of radar stations, including the JY-27 “Wide Mat”.

But despite this barrage of electronic signals, the Syrian S-200 still managed to locate the supposedly undetectable Adir (the “Israeli” name for the F-35), and fire at the aircraft.

“Israeli” computer simulations and other maneuvers were reportedly unsuccessful in rescuing one of the fighter jets.

Meanwhile, the Pantsir-S1 destroyed three of the missiles fired by the “Israelis”. Some reports have suggested that the S-400 was also involved in the action.

It is difficult to say how prepared the “Israelis” were for such an outcome. After all, this was always going to be a risky operation, and not just because “Israel’s” fifth generation stealth aircraft is now vulnerable.

According to some media reports, a growing number of Russian military personnel stationed in Syria are being killed by the “Israeli” strikes. And Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is now said to be contemplating measures designed to dissuade Tel Aviv from attacking Syria.

The timing

In recent weeks, the Syrian military has exhibited a high degree of efficiency in fighting back militant groups across the country’s southern regions – not far from the “Israeli” occupied Golan Heights.

Efforts to break the siege on Eastern Ghouta by groups like Tahrir al-Sham have been foiled following the deployment of three Syrian army divisions in the area, including tanks and heavy armor. The Syrian army has also deployed mobile observation teams, which enabled the successful use of the Sukhoi Su-24 fighter planes – recently supplied by the Russians.

Similar successes were recorded in the southwestern province of Quneitra against Jabhat al-Nusra.

Further north, Nusra came under attack from the Syrian military and its allies, as they edged toward the highly strategic Abu al-Duhur air base in Idlib.

The combination of these successes prompted the “Israelis” to ignore the growing risk involved and launch their attacks on Syrian military installations.

“Israeli” objectives

The degree of “Israeli” support for groups like Jabhat al-Nusra has reportedly become so extensive in southern parts of Syria, that “Israel’s” intelligence assets and special operation units get directly involved in battles to get the militants out of tight situations.

Such operations are frequently accompanied by the “Israeli” shelling of Syrian army and Hezbollah positions.

In the occupied Golan, the “Israelis” have already deployed at least one armored division made up predominately of the Merkava Mk3 tanks, but also consisting of self-propelled anti-tank vehicles and artillery units.

Meanwhile, in the skies over southern Syria, “Israeli” military intelligence is reportedly studying the routes of Syrian aircraft.

“Israel’s” continuing reliance on terrorist groups and its military maneuvers has led some experts to conclude that Tel Aviv is looking for the right opportunity to launch a ‘lighting’ ground offensive in southern Syria.

And although the latest airstrikes highlight Syria’s improving air-defense capabilities, the attacks also suggest that “Israel” has not entirely parted ways with the idea of toppling the Damascus government.

Moreover, “Israel” is exhibiting a willingness to take on increasingly risky operations, in a desperate bid to achieve its immediate strategic objective – the removal of the Iranian military contingent from Syria, especially along the country’s southern frontier.

Policies adopted by the Trump White House – the scrapping of the Iran nuclear deal, the recognition of Jerusalem (Al-Quds) as the “Israeli” ‘capital’, the rejection of the two-state solution and the withholding of funds for Palestinian refugees – are certainly reassuring for Tel Aviv.

But how much help can the “Israelis” expect on the battlefield? The answer: probably none.

If the “Israelis” were to launch a direct military incursion into parts Syria, they would be confronted by the full weight of the Resistance Axis and their Russian partners.

And if the “Israelis” have trouble ruling the skies – Tel Aviv’s last remaining frontier of dominance – attempts to score successes on the ground may prove utterly disastrous.

Sayyed Nasrallah Rejects US Presence in Iraq: We Stand by LA in Face of ’Israel’, No for Normalization

Sayyed Nasrallah Rejects US Presence in Iraq: We Stand by LA in Face of ’Israel’, No for Normalization

19-01-2018 | 19:50

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on Friday a speech in which he tackled various internal, regional topics.

Sayyed Nasrallah’s speech came during a memorial ceremony held to commemorate the martyrdom of the Resistance men in Syrian Quneitra in 2015, as well as the 40th anniversary of late Haj Fayez Mughniyeh, the father of Martyr Leader Haj Imad Mughniyeh as well, two other Resistance men as well as the grandfather of the martyr Jihad Imad Mughniyeh.

Hailing the Resistance efforts, His Eminence viewed that it should be widely known that one can’t talk about Lebanese security away from Hezbollah martyrs.

“When we talk about the reasons behind Daesh’s [Arabic Acronym for the terrorist “ISIS”/”ISIL” group] defeat, the credit goes to our martyrs, their resilient families, the wounded who are now suffering and the fighters in several arenas,” he added.

In parallel, His Eminence stressed that “the talk of the huge defeat of the American scheme in the region as well as the victories of the governments and the people of the region is due to those sacrifices of martyrs.”

Mentioning some of late Haj Fayez Mughniyeh’s traits, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “Haj Abu Imad is a modest, pure and patient believer, who spent his life supporting the Resistance’s path. He was always present among the martyrs’ families.”

“Abu Imad’s generation was divided into two, some encouraged their sons to join the Resistance, while others didn’t prevent them from doing so,” he stated, pointing out that “offering a martyr leader like Haj Imad is a blessing for the whole family. However, Haj Fayez also offered one of his grandsons.”

The Resistance Leader went on to say: “From the blessings of Haj Abu Imad’s family is to offer a man and an exceptional Resistance leader to in Lebanon and Palestine, the Marty Leader Haj Imad Mughniyeh.”

In addition, His Eminence highlighted that “Haj Abu Imad asked in his will to be buried in his hometown, Tayrdebah . He wanted his family to continue to visit their village.”
Urging the people to follow Haj Fayez’ path, Sayyed Nasrallah urged the families in Beirut to return to their ancestral towns so that they continue to remember their families and return to their homes in their original hometowns.

He also added that their existed plans by the government and the civil society to lift the burden off the capital, in terms of trash, traffic and drugs.

“We in Hezbollah are thinking about this. We want most of those who work in the south, to live in the south and those in the Bekaa to live there,” His Eminence asserted., noting that “once the issue of transportation is resolved in Lebanon, things would be easier.”
On another level, Sayyed Nasrallah rejected US fabrications of the so-called Hezbollah narco-terror network.

In this context, he rejected the baseless claims mentioned [in Politico] and the fact that the
US Justice Department formed a committee to investigate how Hezbollah is related to drugs, and how [former US President Barack] Obama opened the door for Hezbollah.

Clarifying that

“drugs are against Hezbollah values,” he confirmed that “according to Islamic doctrine, selling drugs to enemy societies such as the “Israeli” society is impermissible.”

“This is our absolute commitment,” he reiterated, noting that

“Hezbollah proved that it was successful to fight terrorism. Thus, the US seeks to paint it as a criminal organization: trafficking drugs, auto theft. This is part of the war on us.”

Meanwhile, His Eminence explained that

“Hezbollah isn’t even involved in permissible trade or investments. Hezbollah has not authorized anyone to run investment projects under its name. We don’t have any money for investment. We need money for our arms. However, there are some rich people, but this is an individual thing. Hezbollah didn’t allow anyone to speak in its name.”

He then advised US statesmen to launch a full-scale investigation into the drug-related activities of their own intelligence bodies.

Commenting on the “Israeli” announcement that the entity intends to build a wall on the border with Lebanon, Sayyed Nasrallah underscored that

“there are 13 disputed areas between Lebanon and “Israel”. To us, we don’t recognize “Israel”. Thus, the disputed areas are to Lebanon or Occupied Palestine.”

“The Lebanese government refused any “Israeli” move in the disputed areas,” he said, announcing that “the Resistance supports the Lebanese government Army in their position.”

To “Israel”, His Eminence sent a sounding message:

“I tell “Israel” to take the Lebanese warning’s serious. We will uphold our responsibilities in this aspect.”

On the soft normalization taking place with “Israel”, Sayyed Nasrallah said Lebanon is committed not to normalize ties.

“There are many in Lebanon who won’t allow any means of normalizing ties with “Israel”. No one is telling you we are against cinema and arts, but doing so under this pretext shows that the state isn’t committed to this principle,” he said.

In this context, His Eminence mentioned Director Stephen Spielberg’s new film “The Post”.

“The issue is not with the movie but with the director – he is on the Lebanese blacklist because he had previously announced his support for 2006 “Israeli” brutal aggression against Lebanon. He even funded this war from his money. He paid $1 million to “Israel”. And now the Lebanese are going to pay to this director and this money might go to “Israel”. He paid $1 million to Israel [after the 2006 war].”

Regarding the recent bomb that targeted Hamas official in the Southern city, Sidon, Sayyed Nasrallah revealed that “all signs indicate that “Israel” was behind the assassination attempt.”

When the Lebanese security agencies conclude their investigations and find out that “Israel” is behind the attack, we hope that it is dealt with as a violation of the Lebanese sovereignty,” His Eminence added.

According to His Eminence,

“This is a dangerous beginning. I want to warn that the attack against the Hamas official represents the beginning of a dangerous security phase in Lebanon.”

He said that the resistance will take its responsibilities in this sense.

On the coming Lebanese parliamentary elections, Sayyed Nasrallah said:

“We support the state and we are not at the point where we have entered the elections phase and hence I will leave this discussion for the next few days in another televised speech.”

“I just want to say that there is an atmosphere of accusations in the country, just to be fair I don’t think that there is anyone in Lebanon who wants to delay or annul the elections,” he stated.

However, he commented on the recent political disputes by saying: “There is no need to cause tension and say that the elections will be postponed. This country can’t be governed by isolating anyone. We had previous experiences in this context.”

“This country can only continue through dialogue, integration and coexistence, not through elimination and marginalization,” His Eminence underlined.

Back to the regional front, Sayyed Nasrallah warned that

“the Americans want to return to Iraq and Syria under the pretext of Daesh. This is while the entire world knows it was the US administration that created the Takfiri group.”

“One of the major challenges Iraqi forces are to face is to reject the presence of US forces,” he viewed.

To the Americans, His Eminence said:

“If you want not to return to our region, ask your allies in the region and the world not to support Daesh.”

He further slammed US President Donald Trump’s use of “Islamic terrorism,” noting that such a terminology clearly proves his animosity towards Islam and Muslims.

“There exists a continuous discrimination from Trump’s administration, He uses the term “Muslim terrorism” on purpose. He has now come to discriminate against the African countries and Haiti.”

In addition, Sayyed Nasrallah cautioned that

“Trump will continue to pressure Arab countries. There also appears to be Arab pressure on Palestine for a deal that has been offered to them [by the US] as long as the Palestinians refuse the deal. There are Arab regimes that continue to pressure the Palestinians to accept the little presented to them.”

Affirming the Resistance’s rejection to the American arrogance and the Zionist scheme, Sayyed Nasrallah concluded: “We have created victories and we will protect our country and side.”

قاطرة المقاومة بخير والإيرانيون قادمون يا قدس انتظروا ما بعد بعد الجولان…!

قاطرة المقاومة بخير والإيرانيون قادمون يا قدس انتظروا ما بعد بعد الجولان

يناير 3, 2018

محمد صادق الحسيني

سقطت خطة «الصدمة» ولعبة أحجار الدومينو «السورية» على أسوار طهران وسقطت معها مؤامرة قلب الصورة التي أرادها مثلث التحالف الأميركي السعودي «الإسرائيلي» من نقل المشهد الإقليمي من فلسطين المحتلة والقدس الى إيران وطهران…!

ولأن هذا الثلاثي الشيطاني يعتقد بجدّ أن طهران باتت بمثابة البنك المركزي للمقاومة، وهي التي قالت صراحة لفصائل الثورة الفلسطينية مجتمعة بأن مقدراتها كلها ستكون تحت تصرفها من أجل إسقاط «صفقة القرن» وإفشال مخطط نقل السفارة الأميركية الى القدس المحتلة، فكان لا بد له من انتظار هذه اللحظة الإيرانية من بوابة الصراع الداخلي من أجل ركوب موجتها فوراً، وبلا تردّد..!

ولما كان لا يختلف اثنان على أن في إيران فئات متضرّرة من السياسة الاقتصادية النيو ليبرالية للحكومة الإيرانية وأن بعض فئات الكادحين والكسبة الصغار والعمال قد يكونون مستعدّين للنزول إلى الشوارع ظناً منهم بأن ذلك من شأنه أن يحظى بتأييد الأصوليين المعارضين لسياسة روحاني، لذا ظنّ المرجفون في المدينة بأنها الفرصة الذهبية المرتقبة لركوب هذه الموجة «إسرائيلياً» وسعودياً وأميركياً…!

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during a live interview broadcasted on November 28, 2017. (Photo via IRNA)

وبالفعل ما أن انطلقت الشرارة ذات الطابع المعيشي الاقتصادي المالي المطلبي من مدينة مشهد المقدسة، والشعار الجذاب الذي يجمع بين «روحاني» الاسم و»روحاني» رجل الدين، كما هو معنى كلمة روحاني باللغة الفارسية بعد أن رفع المتظاهرون شعار الموت لروحاني ، إلا وقد ظنّ ذلك الثلاثي الغبيّ بأن الفرصة قد جاءت إليهم مجاناً…!

لكن وكما يقول الشاعر العربي أبو نؤاس في قصيدته دع عنك لومي:فقل لمن يدّعي في العلم فلسفةً

حفظت شيئاً وغابت عنك أشياءُ…!

نعم قد يكون باستطاعتك لبعض الوقت أن تفلح كما فعلت عملياً باللعب على هذا، لتضع الرئيس حسن روحاني وكل رجال الدين الإيرانيين، باعتبارهم أئمة المجتمع الإيراني وطليعة الثورة في سلة «فشل اقتصادي» واحدة، ثم ترمي بحجارتك عليهم وبعض رصاصك على المتظاهرين مرة وعلى الأمن والشرطة مرة أخرى وفي ذهنك أن تحوّل إيران الى يونان الشرق أو تصورها كذلك حتى تهيمن على مقدراتها، أو تدخلها في دومينو «الربيع العربي» المتوحش والقاتل…!

لكنك لن تستطيع الاستمرار في هذا في بلاد الحضارات الجامعة للأصالة والمعاصرة …!

حفظت شيئاً وغابت عنك أشياءُ…!

 “نعم قد يكون باستطاعتك لبعض الوقت أن تفلح كما فعلت عملياً باللعب على هذا، لتضع الرئيس حسن روحاني وكل رجال الدين الإيرانيين، باعتبارهم أئمة المجتمع الإيراني وطليعة الثورة في سلة «فشل اقتصادي» واحدة، ثم ترمي بحجارتك عليهم وبعض رصاصك على المتظاهرين مرة وعلى الأمن والشرطة مرة أخرى وفي ذهنك أن تحوّل إيران الى يونان الشرق أو تصورها كذلك حتى تهيمن على مقدراتها، أو تدخلها في دومينو «الربيع العربي» المتوحش والقاتل…!

لكنك لن تستطيع الاستمرار في هذا في بلاد الحضارات الجامعة للأصالة والمعاصرة …!

لا لن يكون لك ذلك، ولن تتمكّن مطلقاً من المضي طويلاً في هذا أيّها الأجنبي البليد، مع مجتمع إيران الذي لتوّه كان قد ركّع الشيطان الأكبر وجعله يتجرّع السم أكثر من مرة وهو يظن أنه ربح المعركة، كما حصل في مفاوضات الستة أمام الواحد الإيراني..!

لقد نسي أجلاف الصحراء وكاوبوي الأطلسي واللمم من شذاذ الآفاق الصهاينة بأن إيران هذه التي يريدون اللعب بساحاتها فيها شعب متمدّن عريق وذو ثقافة عالية وفطنة ودراية لا يمكن أن يقع فريسة سيناريو رجعي همجي متخلف دموي تكفيري حتى يقتتل مواطنوه في ما بينهم، وهو صاحب السمات الجامعة لشرائع التوحيد والمدنية المعاصرة مع نظرة مستقبلية واعدة لا يمكن أن يتلاعب بها هواة من جنس داعش وأخواته وأسيادهم الشرعيين والحرام على السواء…!

لذلك سرعان ما انتبهت الأكثرية الشعبية التي في السلطة وتلك التي في المعارضات من حزب الله الإيراني في جنوب العاصمة طهران والأرياف وصولاً الى إيرانيي سكان لوس انجلوس بمن فيهم وزير خارجية الشاه الذي طالب بعدم الركون للأجنبي او اعتماد إغراءاته المالية وغير المالية …!

نعم توحّدت الأمة الإيرانية من جديد، كما حصل في النووي وستسمعون المزيد من قائدها ومرشدها وإمامها الذي سيلخّص بصائر هذه الأمة الرشيدة التي سيكتب التاريخ يوماً أنها ستهزم أعتى إمبراطورية وتطيح جبروتها وشياطينها الكبار والصغار على أسوار بيت المقدس وصخورها الشامخة…!

من هنا نقول لقد سقطت مؤامرة التسلل إلى القلعة من الداخل ونقل الحرب الى الداخل الإيراني، كما حلم بعض فتيان الأعراب الدواشر..!

وتأكيداً على ما نقول فإن مصادرنا الخاصة حصلت على تقييم خلصت إليه أربعة أجهزة أوروبية متابعة للشأن الإيراني، إلى جانب جهاز أمني لدولة معادية لإيران، بعد إجراء تقييم للأحداث التي شهدتها إيران خلال الأربعة ايّام الماضية. وقد جاء في هذا التقييم ما يلي:

أولاً: إن المظاهرات التي قامت أجهزة الاعلام الغربية والعربية بتضخيمها بشكل كبير، كانت مظاهرات صغيرة لا يزيد المشاركون في كل منها عن مئتي شخص. وفي أحسن الأحوال اقترب العدد من 500 شخص.

ثانياً: تمّ رصد غياب كامل لفئة المثقفين، التي وقفت وراء أحداث 2009، وكذلك غاب عن المشهد فئة التجار وبشكل كامل، إضافة الى غياب الطلاب عن المظاهرات، حيث لا يمكن اعتبار التحرك الطالبي المحدود جداً في محيط جامعة طهران ذا أهمية.

وقد اقتصرت المشاركة في التظاهرات على الطبقة العمالية وبعض المزارعين والعاطلين عن العمل.

ثالثاً: هذا يعني أن الأغلبية الساحقة من الشعب الإيراني تدعم النظام ولا تشارك في التحرّكات المناهضة له، مما يشير إلى عدم وجود أي أخطار حقيقية تهدّد الدولة، على عكس ما يتم تداوله في الكثير من وسائل الإعلام.

رابعاً: تفتقر التظاهرات التي جرت في الكثير من المدن والبلدات الإيرانية إلى وجود قيادة متماسكة قادرة على توجيه التحرك بشكل فعال. ولكن هذا لا يعني أن المظاهرات تجري بشكل عفوي بالكامل أو عدم وجود جهات خارجية معينة، أو جهات إيرانية تقيم في الخارج، تقف وراء الأحداث.

وما يشير إلى ذلك وجود توجيه من الخارج هو العناصر التالية:

الدعوة إلى الإضراب العام يوم الثلاثاء 2/1/2018.

استخدام السلاح من قبل بعض المتظاهرين ضد قوى الأمن في أكثر من بلدة شهدت مظاهرات.

الخلاصة التي توصلت اليها هي أنه:

لا أخطار تهدد الدولة او المجتمع الإيرانيين على الرغم من احتمال استمرار حصول بعض أعمال التظاهر… وانه لا خشية على استقرار اوضاع البلاد الاقتصادية، رغم كل العثرات التي يعاني منها فريق الرئيس حسن روحاني…

أخيراً نقول لكم وبكل صراحة أيها الأجلاف والكاوبوي وشذاذ الآفاق مجتمعين كلاماً من صميم الأمة الإيرانية مجتمعة:

لم ولن نتفاجأ، لأننا نرصد تآمركم ضد قوى محور المقاومة بدقة وباستمرار، وبخاصة تآمركم ضد قاطرة هذا المحور: إيران ذلك المحور الذي فاجأكم وسبب لكم صدمة كبرى في ميادين القتال في العراق وسورية واليمن. تلك المفاجآت التي كان آخرها القضاء على عملائكم في بيت جن ومحيطها قبل أيّام. إن وصول دبابات الجيش العربي السوري وحلفائه الى خط وقف إطلاق النار في الجولان هو المفاجأة التي جننتكم…! الاستراتيجية سياسياً وعسكرياً وليس تحرّككم البائس ضد إيران والمتمثل في تجنيد بضع عشرات أو حتى من الشبان الغاضبين، كل لأسبابه، أو تشغيل مرتزقة منافقي خلق المنظمة التي رمت بنفسها مبكراً في أحضان العدو التاريخي للأمة الإيرانية، ها هي اليوم تحت تستقر عند منظّري «إدارة التوحش» ودفعهم ليعيثوا خراباً في العديد من المدن الإيرانية…! مهما حاولتم إرغامنا على حرف بوصلتنا عن القدس وفلسطين، من خلال محاولات خلق إرباكات مختلفة لقوى حلف المقاومة، فإننا نؤكد لكم أننا لم ولن نحرف بوصلتنا عن القدس.

لن نحرم مواطناً إيرانياً من التعبير عن نفسه بالطرق التي يكفلها دستور البلاد، ولكننا سنضرب بيد من حديد كل عملاء القوى الأجنبية الصهيوأميركية والبريطانية والمدعومة من فرنسا أيضاً. ولن نسمح لهذه العصابات الموجهة من الخارج بالتمادي في نشر الفوضى والاعتداء على الأملاك العامة والخاصة في البلاد.

لن تستطيعوا نقل المعركة إلى داخل إيران مهما تآمرتم ومهما أنفقتم من أموال وإنما نحن الذين سننقل المعركة، الى داخل قاعدتكم العسكرية على الأرض الفلسطينية والمسماة «إسرائيل» ولكن متى نريد نحن وحسب الخطط الموضوعة من قبل هيئة أركان القوات المشتركة لحلف المقاومة لمعركة تحرير فلسطين.

ولعل من المفيد تذكيركم، أيها الخائبون، بأحد أناشيد الفدائيين الفلسطينيين والتي تقول كلماتها:

نحن إلليّ نحدّد الزمان

نحن الليٌ نختار المكان

أقوالنا أفعالنا

عكفوفنا أرواحنا

وأن متنا هاي أولادنا بيكمّلوا مشوارنا…

أخيراً وليس آخر نقول للعدو الذي يصطاد في الماء العكر، نعرفك جيداً ونعرف عنك أكثر مما تعرف عنا، وما تريده من إيران لن يُصار اليك:

ومحرّك التظاهرات الإيرانية من مشهد الى رشت الى كرمانشاه الى غيرها هو «أمير الظلام» أو «آية الله مايك» مايكل دي أندريا مسؤول الـ CIA الذي أوكل إليه الملف الإيراني بعد مجيء ترامب. هذه المظاهرات لن تُجدي نفعاً وخريطة المنطقة باتت مرسومة ولن تخرج إيران من سورية وهذا ما جاء مطلباً أساسياً من المتظاهرين الذين سرعان ما كشفوا عن الجهة المشغلة لهم..

مرگ بر آمریکا

مرگ بر اسرائیل

بعدنا طيّبين، قولوا الله.
