Netanyahu/Gantz White House Invitation to Discuss Trump Regime’s No-Peace/Peace Plan

By Stephen Lendman


Leaked information shows Trump’s so-called deal of the century is a one-sided scam, favoring Israel at the expense of fundamental Palestinian rights.

The so-called peace process is the greatest hoax in modern times, along with the US war OF terror worldwide, not on it.

Israeli/Palestinian no-peace/peace plans have been around since the 1970s — a near-half century of failure to reach accommodation proof positive of US/Israeli unwillingness to respect Palestinian rights.

If both countries wanted conflict resolution resolution with Palestinians, it would have happened long ago.

Former Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Shamir explained why not. He and his predecessors wanted forever talks accomplishing nothing – giving Israel time to steal all valued Palestinian land.

His successors to the present day followed the same strategy.

Since Israel seized control of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza in 1967, colonizing and developing the most valued Palestinian land for exclusive Jewish use became official state policy — explained by Yigal Allon’s regional scheme, its elements including:

• permanent militarized occupation;

• maximum land for Jews with minimum Arabs;

• dispossessing Palestinians from areas Israel wants for exclusive Jewish development and use;

• annexing all valued parts of Judea and Sumaria;

• controlling Jerusalem as Israel’s exclusive capital;

• establishing settlements, military bases, free-fire zones, commercial locations, tourist sites, nature reserves, no-go areas, Jews-only roads, checkpoints, other barriers, and other exclusive Jewish areas — non-Jews excluded from them;

• stealing Palestinian resources; and

• cracking down hard on resisters. 

The above policies make peace, stability, equity and justice for Palestinians unattainable.

Achieving them defeats the US/Israeli agenda — dependent on endless regional conflicts and instability.

It’s why decades of peace plans when unveiled were dead on arrival, Trump’s let em eat cake deal of the century dead before arrival.

Partly introduced last June at a so-called “Peace to Prosperity Workshop” in Bahrain, the Trump regime’s dog and pony PR show was boycotted by Palestinians.

Deceptively billed as “a vision to empower the Palestinian people to build a prosperous and vibrant Palestinian society,” the economic plan has nothing to do with peace, equity and justice for long-suffering Palestinians — everything to do with one-sidedly serving US/Israeli interests. 

Based on what’s known so far, subject to fine-tuning, Trump’s overall scheme ignores fundamental final status issues, especially real Palestinian self-determination free from Israeli occupation and control, Israeli land theft, air and water rights, other resources, the right of diaspora Palestinians to return to their homeland, and East Jerusalem as exclusive Palestinian capital. 

He illegally recognized Jerusalem (a UN-established international city) as Israel’s exclusive capital, moved the US embassy there, abandoned a legitimate two-state solution, recognized Israel’s unlawful Golan annexation, and no longer considers illegal settlements occupied territory.

Trump and hardliners surrounding him are no friends of Palestinians or ordinary people anywhere, not at home or abroad.

Information leaked last month about his no-peace/peace plan revealed it excludes 70% or more of West Bank land controlled by Israel, including the Jordan Valley, closed military zones, exclusive Jewish commercial areas, tourist sites, no-go areas, and illegal settlements on stolen Palestinian land. 

Jerusalem is to remain undivided, the city “shared between Israel and New Palestine” — Israel maintaining exclusive control, the way it’s been for over half a century.

On July 30, 1980, the Knesset Jerusalem Law officially annexed the city as Israel’s exclusive capital — breaching Security Council Res. 465 (March 1980).

It declared actions taken by Israel “to change the physical character, demographic composition, institutional structure or status of the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967, including Jerusalem, or any part thereof, have no legal validity…”

In July 2004,  the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled that “Israeli settlements in the Occupied Territory, including East Jerusalem, are illegal and an obstacle to peace and to economic and social development (and) have been established in breach of international law.”

Time and again, the US and Israel breach Security Council resolutions and other international laws.

Trump’s no-peace/peace plan is all about serving US and Israeli interests at the expense of regional peace, stability, and fundamental Palestinian rights.

According to Mike Pence on Thursday, Netanyahu and his chief political rival Benny Gantz will meet with Trump in the White House next week to discuss regional issues and what PA official Saeb Erekat called Trump’s “deal of the next century,” a conspiracy against Palestinian rights.

Reuters reported that the Trump regime will release his no-peace/peace plan ahead of the January 28 meeting with Netanyahu and Gantz.

DJT calling it “a great plan” defies reality. PA spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh reaffirmed the Palestinian demand for an independent state within June 1967 borders — free from Israeli occupation and control.

On Thursday, Israel’s Channel 12, citing unnamed Netanyahu regime sources, said Trump’s plan includes exclusive Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem, illegal settlements, and the Jordan Valley adding:

It supports the illusion of Palestinian self-determination, demanding a demilitarized Hamas, along with Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, Jerusalem its capital.

It also reportedly stipulates that if Palestinians reject the so-called plan, the Trump regime will support Israeli annexation of illegal settlements unilaterally.

According to the Wafa PA news site, Rudeineh said the following:

“If the announcement of this deal, with these unacceptable formulas, is made, the (PA) leadership will announce a series of measures to preserve our legitimate rights, and we will call on Israel to assume its responsibilities as an occupying power,” adding:

“We warn (the Netanyahu and Trump regimes) to not cross the red lines.”

Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassim said “any deal or project that does not contain our people’s full rights in our land and holy sites will not stand,” adding:

“All the attempts to make this deal come to pass will be squashed by our people’s resistance and steadfastness.” 

“Our Palestinian people will determine its fate by way of its ongoing revolution, legitimate struggle and absolute belief in the justness of its cause.”

On Thursday, Trump tweeted:

“Reports about details and timing of our closely-held peace plan are purely speculative.”

If its provisions resemble what’s discussed above, it’ll clearly be rejected by the PA, Hamas, and the Palestinian street.

أميركا هي «إسرائيل» الكبرى وإنهاء وجودها في غرب آسيا بات محتّماً

يناير 6, 2020

د. عصام نعمان

ما ارتكبه دونالد ترامب في قلب العراق جريمة تاريخية بامتياز تخدم أغراض أميركا الصغرى، “إسرائيل”، كما مصالح “إسرائيل” الكبرى، أي الولايات المتحدة ذاتها. “إسرائيل” الكبرى وأميركا الصغرى منخرطتان منذ العام 1979 في حربٍ متواصلة مع قوى المقاومة الناشطة ضدهما من شواطئ البحر الأبيض المتوسط غرباً الى تخوم افغانستان شرقاً. اغتيالُ رئيس هيئة اركان جميع قوى المقاومة في بلدان غرب آسيا قاسم سليماني ومساعده نائب رئيس هيئة الحشد الشعبي في العراق ابو مهدي المهندس دليل إضافي ساطع على تواصل حرب أميركا الصغرى و”إسرائيل” الكبرى وتصعيدها ضد جميع قوى المقاومة العربية والإسلامية.

ما أبرز معطيات الجريمة التاريخية وتداعياتها؟

في المعطيات، تتضح الحقائق الثلاث الآتية:

أولاها، إن ترامب أعلن جهاراً نهاراً وضعَ يده مباشرةً على مناطق حقول النفط في سورية، كما كان فعل مداورةً قبل سنوات في العراق، وأن أميركا عازمة على استثمارها ومصادرة عائداتها وتوظيف بعضها لدعم حلفائها من الكرد السوريين، وأنها لهذا الغرض قامت بتعزيز قواتها في كِلا البلدين.

ثانيتها، ان الضربة الأميركية الصاعقة لثلاثة مواقع لكتائب حزب الله في منطقة القائم العراقية المحاذية لمعبر البوكمال السوري لم تكن، في الواقع، رداً على عملية قصفٍ لقوات أميركية متمركزة في قاعدة عسكرية عراقية بمحيط مدينة كركوك النفطية، بل كانت ضربة مدروسة في سياق استراتيجي غايتها إقفال معبر البوكمال بين العراق وسورية استجابةً لطلب “إسرائيل” المتخوّفة من مخاطر وجود خط إمداد لوجستي ممتد من إيران الى لبنان عبر العراق وسورية.

ثالثتها، إن ما كشفه رئيس اركان الجيش الإسرائيلي الجنرال افيف كوخافي في معهد هرتسيليا المتعدد المجالات قبل نحو أسبوعين من معطيات ومخاوف لجهة تعاظم قوة “فيلق القدس” بقيادة قاسم سليماني في سورية، كما تزايد عدد الصواريخ الدقيقة لدى حزب الله في لبنان، ولكون الصناعة العسكرية الإيرانية أكبر من كل الصناعات الأمنية في “إسرائيل”…كل ذلك يؤكد تنامي مخاوف القيادة العسكرية الإسرائيلية مما تعتبره مخاطر جدّية تهدّد الأمن القومي للكيان الصهيوني.

اذْ شكّلت المعطيات سالفة الذكر حوافز قوية لـِ “إسرائيل الكبرى” كي تسارع الى سدّ فجوات أمنها، بعدما قامت إيران بإسقاط طائرة تجسس أميركية مسيّرة ومتطورة على علو نحو 20 كيلومتراً، ثم قام حلفاؤها اليمنيون بتدمير موقعين إنتاجيين لشركة أرامكو النفطية ما ادى الى خفض صادرات السعودية من النفط بمقدار النصف… كل هذه التطورات شكّلت حوافز اضافية دافعة للولايات المتحدة الى محاولة استعادة “هيبتها الردعية” بتوجيه ضربة شديدة الى إيران بما هي راعية محور المقاومة وأقوى أطرافه، فماذا تراها تكون التداعيات والمفاعيل المترتبة على ذلك؟

لعلها ثلاث:

أولاها، ان أميركا خسرت بمجرد إقدامها على اغتيال قاسم سليماني ورفيقه ابو مهدي المهندس، نائب رئيس “هيئة الحشد الشعبي” التي يرأسها رسمياً القائد الأعلى للقوات المسلحة رئيس الوزراء العراقي عادل عبد المهدي، خسرت “أصدقاءها” وضاعفت أعداءها العراقيين الكثر الأمر الذي اعطى أهل السلطة في بغداد السببَ والدافع والمسوّغ لتشريع إنهاء الوجود العسكري الأميركي في بلاد الرافدين. لا غلوّ في القول إن إجلاء القوات الأميركية عن العراق سيشكّل خسارة استراتيجية مدوّية لكل من الولايات المتحدة و”إسرائيل” اذْ لا يُبقي لواشنطن في الإقليم من مرتكز برّي ذي قيمة استراتيجية وازنة إلاّ الكيان الصهيوني.

ثانيتها، إن ضخامة مفاعيل اغتيال قاسم سليماني وأبو مهدي المهندس على العراق كما على إيران وسائر اطراف محور المقاومة، ستجعل هؤلاء جميعاً محكومين باتخاذ تدابير عملانية ولوجستية متقدّمة ومعجّلة لتوحيد وتفعيل جبهات المواجهة ضد “إسرائيل” وأميركا على مدى مساحة برية وبحرية وجوية واسعة تمتد من شواطئ البحر المتوسط غرباً الى تخوم افغانستان شرقاً، ومن بادية سورية شمالاً الى جبال اليمن جنوباً وذلك تحسباً لأي ردّة فعل أميركية واسعة على قيام إيران بتنفيذ وعيد مرشدها الأعلى السيد علي خامنئي “بردٍّ قاسٍ” على الولايات المتحدة في العراق او على مدى الشرق الأوسط برمته.

ثالثتها، إن قواعد اشتباك جديدة قد تولّدت جراء عملية الاغتيال بين الولايات المتحدة و”إسرائيل” من جهة واطراف محور المقاومة من جهة أخرى. واذ تبدو الحرب المفتوحة مستبعدة في مرحلتها الأولى، فإن من المحتمل جداً ان تؤدي ردة فعل أميركا على الضربة الإيرانية القاسية المتوقعة، وربما قبلها، الى خروج إيران من الاتفاق النووي نهائياً، وإلى توسيع بيكار الرد الثأري المتدرّج لمحور المقاومة بحيث يشمل جبهات تصديها جميعاً لـِ “إسرائيل”، وقد يتطوّر لاحقاً الى حرب مفتوحة بين جميع أطراف الصراع المرير المحتدم في الإقليم.

قيل إن الثأر طبقُ طعامٍ لا يجوز تناوله إلاّ بارداً. حسناً، إن إيران ما زالت تصبر وتتصابر وتتصدّى بحكمة وأناة للعدوان الصهيوأميركي المتواصل منذ اندلاع ثورتها العام 1979، ومثلها تنظيمات المقاومة الفلسطينية واللبنانية. غير ان صَلَف العدو الصهيوني وتهوّر العدو الترامبي الأميركي سيؤديان، عاجلاً أو آجلاً، الى اندلاع حربٍ واسعة ومدمرة، قد يتسنّى معها للسيد حسن نصرالله وغيره كثيرون بأن يحققوا أمنية عتيقة ومتجددة بالصلاة في القدس الشريف…

تقبّل الله صلاتكم ودعاءكم.

Sayyed Nasrallah: Fair Punishment for Assassinating Soleimani, Al-Muhandis is Ending the US Presence in our Region

Sayyed Nasrallah: Fair Punishment for Assassinating Soleimani, Al-Muhandis is Ending the US Presence in our Region

Zeinab Essa

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on Sunday a speech in which he shed light on the biggest crime of assassinating the Leaders General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis.

Addressing thousands of mourners in Dahyia [Southern Suburbs of Beirut] at the memorial of both leaders, Sayyed Nasrallah said that Hezbollah is commeorating the martyrdom of “the great and global leader Hajj Qassem Solimani and our beloved brother Abu Mahdi Al-Muhadis.”

Confirming that “2/2/2020 is a decisive point that announces the beginning of a new stage,” he underscored that “The two martyrs, Hajj Qassem and Abu Mahdi were passionate for martyrdom especially in the recent years.”

“Hajj Qassem Soleimani achieved his goal on Thursday evening, which is martyrdom,” His Eminence added,underscoring that the personal goal for the two leaders was “martyrdom”.

As the Resistance leader condoled the families of both martyr leaders, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that “The crulest thing our enemy posses is to kill us and our ultimate goal is martyrdom. This equation of faith turns death into victory.”

“We are not defeated.Even when we are martyred we triumph,” he elaborated.

On the incident, Sayyed Nasrallah unveiled that “Hajj Qassem Soleimani and his companions publicly traveled from Damascus to Baghdad airport. After moving in their cars for a certain distance, a brutal strike hit our dear bothers sacttering and burning their bodies. Not only did Hajj Qassem achieve martyrdom but his head and hands were cut off like Imam Hussein and Abbas and his body was torn apart.”

According to His Eminence, “We’re in front of an very clear crime based on Trump’s order to his army.”

Recalling that “several attempts to assassinate Hajj Qassem were foiled in the past,” he explained that “he decision for this public assassination came after the successive failures to assassinate Soleimani secretly.”

“Since the beginning of his term, [US President Donald] Trump has set a goal of toppling the Islamic regime in Iran,” the Resistance Leader added, listing that “Trump has worked to withdraw from the nuclear agreement, to sanction and pressure Iran as well as to agitate strife in it.”

Moreover, His Eminence added that “Trump achieved nothing in the Iranian issue, as his sanctions and blockades did not work and he does not know what to say to the American people abouthis failure in this file.”

In addition, Sayyed Nasrallah underscored that “He [Donald Trump] scored another failure in Lebanon despite all the sanctions, incitement and funds that made him achieve nothing.”

On this level, His Eminence unveiled that “In his last trip, [US envy to the region] Satterfield threatened the Lebanese authorities that “Israel” would bomb Hezbollah installations if they didn’t remove it in 15 days. That never happened.”

“Another factor for Trump’s action is the failure in Yemen and Afghanistan despite negotiations with the Taliban,” he said, pointing out that “Trump is clear and transparent because he is arrogant as he weighs no value for countries, international institutions and communities.”
 or the international community.”

Regarding the latest developments on the Iraqi environment, Sayyed Nasrallah clarified that “Trump sought to weaken Iraq and control it through Daesh, but he failed.”

“Trump considers that Iraq does not have a state and this is mentioned in his statements; he wants to deploy his forces in the country to control its oil fields and export them to the world.”

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that “Daesh was defeated thanks to the Iraqi people’s steadfastness and the support of the religious authority and the sacred Popular Moblization Forces,and that’s why martyr Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis’ roles were important on this front.”

“The Iraqi government that resulted from elections headed by Adel Abdel Mahdi bothered the US government because it refused to sanction Iran or to be part of the deal of the century and it signed agreements with China.”

On another level, His Eminence warned that “The Americans, through their electronic armies and their malicious tools, seek to cause discord and strife between the Iraqi people and the Iranian people because they believed that Iran supported the Iraqi people.”

Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say that “The US has searched for something that can be achieved and that can break the axis of resistance, but at the same time doesn’t lead to war with Iran.”

“Wherever America and “Israel” went in the region, they found a man facing them everywhere in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, and in every axis of the resistance, they found Qassem Soleimani,” His Eminence declared.

Announcing that “The United States has started a new war of a new type in the region,” Sayyed Nasrallah revealed that “Hajj Qassem Soleimani visited me a week before his assassination i.e. on the 1st day of the new year.”

“”Israel” considers that the most dangerous man for its existence and entity is Qassem Soleimani. However, it did not dare to kill him so it resorted to America to accomplish the mission.”

His Eminence also said that he told Hajj Qassem on his visit that the American media is focusing on him because the US is planning his assassination.”

Meanwhile,he highlighted that “The enemies were hoping that with assassinating Hajj Qassem in Iraq and that the axis of the resistance would retract and that the coordination between the axis would be lost and that Iran would be afraid and so on.”

Regarding the response, he stated that “Through the assassination crime, Trump sought to intimidate and subjugate Iran but the response has started in Iran, with the statements of the Supreme Leader Imam Khamenei and the other Iranian officials.”

“Hajj Qassem and Abu Mahdi’s blood must lead to ousted the US army out of Iraq. Iraqi resistance will not let a single US soldier remain in Iraq,” Sayyed Nasrallah stressed, pointing out that “If the US had attacked Iran, it would not have required our involvement. But when they killed Qassem Soleimani, they attacked the resistance.Qassem Soleimani means all the axis of resistance and he’s not an Iranian issue.”

 Reiterating that “The perpetrator of this crime is clear and should be punished,” Sayyed Nasrallah urged the Iraqis and particularly the “Iraqi parliament to approve a law calling for the withdrawal of US forces from Iraq. And this is the minimun to be done.”

“The fair punishment is eliminating the US military presence from our region. There is no figure i.e. parallel to Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis. Qassem Soleimani’s shoes is equal to Trump’s head.”

On this level, Sayyed Nasrallah addressed the Resistance people by saying:  “It is up to anyone from the axis of resistance to deliver a fair punishment after Soleimani’s assassination and Iran will not request anything from its allies and friends.”

To the US adiminstration, the Resistance Leader sent a sounding message: “The US army killed Qassem Soleimani and abu Mahdi and it will pay the price.The self-sacrifying martyrs who removed America from our neighborhood are more present than before to achieve this, and the Mujahideen are present to achieve this. The US military bases, soldiers, officers and warships are fair targets. Once the coffins of American soldiers and officers begin returning home, Trump will realize he has lost the region.”

However, he clarified that ” We do not at all mean the American people and citizens across our region.”

“If this type of assassination goes unpunished, the region will be violated by the Americans and the “Israelis”. When the Americans leave our region, the liberation of Al-Quds will be closer

Clearly, Sayyed Nasrallah said: “I say to Trump and those with him do you know what you did, which blood you shed and which sou you killed.This is a different matter and the fair punishment for Qassem Soleimani is a punishment for Imad Mughniyah, Sayyed Abbas, Sheikh Ragheb, Mustafa Badrddine, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis and all the martyrs.”

Axis of resistance to respond decisively to Gen. Soleimani’s assassination: Top Hezbollah official


Saturday, 04 January 2020 2:16 PM  [ Last Update: Saturday, 04 January 2020 2:25 PM ]

Late Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps

A high-ranking official with the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement has strongly condemned the assassination of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), in US airstrikes in the Iraqi capital Baghdad, emphasizing that the response of the axis of resistance to his targeted killing will be decisive.

Speaking at a memorial ceremony held in Lebanon’s southern town of Doueir, Mohammad Raad slammed  the “US’ cowardly crime” of targeting the top Iranian general, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) and other resistance fighters, stressing that the act will not go unpunished.

“Whoever belongs to the axis of resistance commits himself to participating in the response, because the two martyrs represent every drop of blood that runs through our veins and every breath through which we live. Days are passing by and there is talk of a new war,” Raad, who is also the head of the Loyalty to the Resistance Bloc in the Lebanese parliament, pointed out.

‘Gen. Soleimani partner in every victory gained by axis of resistance’

Meanwhile, another Lebanese legislator described General Soleimani as a partner in every victory that the anti-Israeli resistance front, Lebanese nation and the peoples of Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan have achieved.

Speaking during a memorial ceremony held in the southern city of Yater, Hassan Fadlallah said the late Iranian commander’s role was noticeable in humiliation of US and Israeli occupation projects, and in the defeat of Takfiri terror groups like Daesh.

“America, the Israeli enemy and all their allies in the axis of evil are under the illusion that they could weaken this struggle if they killed a commander or a hero of this resistance axis. They do not know the truth of this culture to which we belong. A culture, under which, a combatant may get killed on the ground but emerges victorious in the end,” Fadlallah, who is also a member of the Loyalty to the Resistance Bloc, highlighted.

Iran will be patient in planning crushing anti-US response: IRGC commander

He added, “Enemies can target a leader here and a hero there; but at the same time they must know that they cannot weaken or make the axis of resistance retreat. All past experiences have actually proven that the blood of such commanders will further the strength and firmness of the axis of resistance.”

“What America did was an act of aggression… There is no doubt that it will leave repercussions and consequences. It will make us more determined to proceed with this battle in order to achieve victories. General Soleimani brought up generations of field commanders and resistance fighters,” Fadlallah said.

الحشد الشعبي يغالب واشنطن وتل أبيب في بغداد

يناير 3, 2020

محمد صادق الحسيني

عندما يصدر الحشد الشعبي العراقي بياناً، يدعو فيه أنصاره للانسحاب من محيط السفارة الأميركية في بغداد، التي هي بمثابة القيادة العامة لقوات الاحتلال الأميركي في العراق، فإنّ لذلك (بيان الانسحاب) دلالات عديدة لا بدّ من الانتباه إليها وتحليلها بدقة، كي نفهم خلفيات وآفاق قرار قيادة الحشد الشعبي هذا.

حيث يجب التأكيد على الحقائق التالية:

إنّ الحفاظ على هيبة الدولة، كما ورد في بيان الحشد، قد تحقق جزئياً، من خلال التعهّدات التي قدّمها الجانب الأميركي للدولة العراقية والتي نصّت على ما يلي:

أ ـ عدم تكرار مثل هذا العدوان على أيّ من قطعات القوات المسلحة العراقية، وبكلّ صنوفها، وفِي كلّ محافظات العراق، بما فيها المحافظات الشمالية.

ب ـ (التزام الجانب الأميركي بمنع “إسرائيل” من القيام بأيّ نشاط جوي، أو هجمات بالصواريخ الجوالة، او غير ذلك من الأنشطة العسكرية، وفِي كلّ أجواء العراق. وهنا يجب التذكير بتصريح قائد الاستخبارات العسكرية الاسرائيلية السابق، الجنرال عاموس يادلين، الذي أدلى به قبل يومين وقال فيه إنه “يجب على إسرائيل ان تكون أكثر حذراً من الآن فصاعداً، في تنفيذ أنشطة جوية في أجواء العراق وذلك خوفاً من ردّ حلف المقاومة على هذه الأنشطة”.

ج ـ التزام الولايات المتحدة الأميركية بوقف الدعم الذي تقدّمه لفلول داعش في العراق وقفاً تاماً وعدم التدخل في نشاطات القوات المسلحة العراقية التي تستهدف ملاحقة هذه الفلول في جميع محافظات العراق.

اما استكمال تحقيق هيبة الدولة العراقية وتأمينها بشكل مطلق واستعادة الكرامة العراقية والشرف العسكري العراقي فيتطلّب بنظر المتابعين المختصين اتخاذ إجراءات أخرى، من قبل الحكومة العراقية، تتمثل في ما يلي:

ـ استغلال فرصة الانتفاضة الشعبية العراقية الحقيقية، التي بدأت تعمّ العراق، ضدّ الاحتلال الأميركي، ونقل المواجهة الى المستوى التشريعي وتحريك البرلمان العراقي، بغضّ النظر عن كلّ التمايزات الحزبية، باتجاه سنّ قانون يلغي الاتفاقية الأمنية الموقعة بين البلدين عام 2010.

ـ إعلان رئاسة الحكومة العراقية، رغم أنها مستقيلة، استعادة السيادة على كافة أجواء العراق وبشكل فوري، على أن يتمّ إعلام وزارة الدفاع وكلّ الجهات الأخرى ذات الاختصاص، بتنفيذ القرار فوراً ودون تأخير.

ـ تنفيذ جميع الاتفاقيات المتعلقة بتزويد القوات المسلحة العراقية بالأسلحة، بما فيها المقاتلات وأسلحة الدفاع الجوي الأكثر تطوّراً، التي وقعتها حكومات عراقية سابقة، مع روسيا، وتمّت عرقلتها من قبل جهات عراقية، تدور في فلك السفارة الأميركية في بغداد، وبتنسيق مباشر مع فريق الموساد الإسرائيلي المقيم في السفارة السيئة الصيت والسمعة نفسها، (هناك ستة آلاف أميركي مسجلين في وزارة الخارجية العراقية كدبلوماسيين على كادر هذه السفارة، وهو ما يوازي عديد لواءين من القوات الخاصة. أيّ انّ لواءين من القوات الخاصة الأميركية يعملان في العراق ويتمتعان بحماية دبلوماسية!

وهنا يجب التأكيد على أنّ ما حققه الشعب العراقي، من خلال انتفاضته ضدّ الاحتلال الأميركي، اليوم ليس هراءً ولا هو أضغاث أحلام، وإنما حقيقة واضحة وانتصار ناجز، لحلف المقاومة، تحقق من خلال ما يلي:

أولاً: وجود قرار قطعي، لا رجعة عنه، لدى قيادة الحشد، مدعومة من قطاعات واسعة جداً من الشعب العراقي، بفرض حصار شامل على كافة نقاط تمركز قوات الاحتلال الأميركي في العراق، بما في ذلك السفارة في بغداد، والمضيّ في المواجهة مع هذه القوات الى أبعد الحدود، وصولاً الى التحرك العسكري الشامل ضدّ الوجود الأميركي في اللحظة المناسبة.

ثانياً: امتلاك أجهزة الاستخبارات الأميركية المختلفة معلومات مؤكدة، بأنّ هذا التحرك الشعبي العراقي ليس أكثر من خطوة أولى، على طريق طويل من الخطوات، الأكثر فعالية والأكثر قسوة تجاه الاحتلال الأميركي. الأمر الذي سيترتب عليه خسائر كبيرة في الأرواح (جنود أميركيين ومتعاقدين) وانعكاسات غاية في السلبية على وضع ترامب الانتخابي داخل الولايات المتحدة.

ثالثاً: تقاطع المعلومات، المتوفرة لدى أجهزة الاستخبارات، الأميركية والإسرائيلية، والمتعلقة باحتمالات تطوّر الانتفاضة الشعبية العراقية ضدّ الاحتلال الأميركي، بأنّ هذا التطور سيقود الى مواجهة واسعة مع كلّ أطراف حلف المقاومة، ليس في العراق فقط وإنما في فلسطين أيضاً، الأمر الذي يعني، كما ذكر موقع ديبكا الاستخباري الإسرائيلي يوم 1/1/2020، أن حلف المقاومة سيشرع بتنفيذ آخر مراحل هجومه الاستراتيجي بهدف تحرير القدس المحتلة وبقية أنحاء فلسطين. وهذا يعني أنّ لدى الأوساط الأمنية والعسكرية الإسرائيلية خشية حقيقية من تدحرج الوضع الى حرب إقليمية واسعة قد تؤدّي الى إغلاق الحساب مع الكيان الإسرائيلي نهائياً.

رابعاً: وبالتالي فإنّ التراجع الأميركي في العراق قد نتج عن كون موازين القوى الاستراتيجي في ميدان المواجهة لا يسمح للحلف الأميركي الصهيوني الرجعي العربي باستمرار عدوانه، لا ضدّ الحشد الشعبي العراقي ولا ضدّ لبنان ولا ضدّ المقاومة الفلسطينية.

وبكلمات أخرى، فإنّ محور المقاومة هو الذي يمسك بزمام المبادرة الاستراتيجي، رغم الاعتداءات والمجازر التي يرتكبها المحتلّ الأميركي و”الإسرائيلي”، مما يعني أنّ الواقع الميداني يختلف عن التهديدات الأميركية والاسرائيلية التي يضجّ بها الإعلام المعادي.

المطلعون على خفايا ما جرى في بغداد يؤكدون القول: ترقبوا مفاجآت من العيار الثقيل في الأيام المقبلة تصلكم تباعاً. بعدنا طيّبين، قولواالله…

Sheer Stupidity Defines the Trump Regime’s Foreign Policy. Escalation and the Risk of an All Out War

By Stephen Lendman

Global Research, January 03, 2020

A personal comment in response to the Trump regime’s assassination of redoubtable Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, a national hero now martyred by US imperial rage.

He represented Iranian resilience and resistance against US state-terrorism, its endless wars of aggression, its rage for global control by brute force — responsible for countless millions of deaths, vast destruction, and human misery globally.

The nation I grew up in long ago no longer exists. Never beautiful, it was world’s apart from today’s permanent US state of war on humanity at home and abroad.

Throughout the post-WW II Cold War period through Soviet Russia’s December 1991 dissolution, I never feared nuclear war.

Mutually assured destruction (MAD) when cooler heads ran things in Washington prevented the unthinkable.

Today’s criminal class in the nation’s capital makes the unthinkable possible — bipartisan hardliners abhorrent of peace, stability, equity, justice, and the rule of law.

They’re unchallenged by a largely ignorant, indifferent public, brainwashed by political and media talking heads, distracted by bread and circuses — while endless wars rage, the nation’s resources used for mass slaughter, vast destruction, conquest and colonization, at the expense of beneficial social change.

Will planet earth be consumed by US arrogance and rage for dominance?

Is catastrophic nuclear war inevitable? Will humanity survive or perish?

Are we doomed by diabolical US rage to force other countries to bend to its will — naked aggression and other hostile actions its favored tactics, multi-world polarity fought tooth and nail, peace and stability considered un-American!US Waging Wars on Multiple Fronts: Cold Wars, Hot Wars, Economic Wars, Propaganda Wars …

As a boy, youth and young man, I was free from what I fear now — possible global war that could kill us all.

The road to hell pursued by the US ruling class is paved with ill-intentions — abhorrent of what just societies cherish.

In my 9th decade, I fear for younger generations in the US and elsewhere.

Will they match my longevity or perish in a mushroom-shaped cloud or by other destructive means?

Are they doomed by US rage to rule the world unchallenged by whatever it takes to achieve its aims, the human toll of no consequence?

Heaven help us in the new year and what follows. 2020 began with a bang! Is the worst ahead?

In response to Soleimani’s Trump regime assassination, Russia’s upper house Federation Council Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Konstantin Kosachev called what happened “the worst case scenario,” adding:

Iranian retribution “will not take long…This is very difficult news, a harbinger of new clashes between the Americans and radical Shiites in Iraq.”

“But I will be glad to be proved wrong because wars are easy to start, but very difficult to end.”

A statement by Russia’s Foreign Ministry said:

“We consider the killing of Soleimani as the result of an American missile strike in the vicinity of Baghdad to be a bold step that will lead to increased tension throughout the region,” adding:

“Soleimani was devoted to protecting Iran’s national interests. We express our sincere condolences to the Iranian people.”

Russian expert Dmitry Trenin said Soleimani’s assassination “will not deter Iran. More likely it will further escalate the situation in the region, starting with Iraq” — where it already began by renewed US aggression.

On Friday, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei announced Soleimani’s successor, saying:

“Following the martyrdom of the glorious General Haj Qasem Soleimani, I name Brigadier General Esmail Ghaani as the commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.”

He also declared three days of mourning to honor Soleimani’s leadership, courage, and dedication to defending Iran from the threat of foreign aggression.
