The Victorious Palestine

Hussein Samawarchi

The act of celebration is very symbolic. Knowing what a people celebrate gives the spectator insight on what kind of society they represent, along with their values.

The Palestinians just celebrated repelling an offensive and avoiding another full-blown massacre against their families. They did not celebrate attacking the illegal settlers who continue to rape their land. Not that they don’t have every ethical right to do so; after all, those settlers are foreign elements who have displaced them by resorting to terrorist methods like the use of weapons and a mercenary army for the purpose of ethnic cleansing and the theft of ancestral land.

It just shows how genuinely pure their cause is – it gives indications of their social attitude. These are the same people who expressed sorrow for the many Jews who endured the unspeakable in Europe almost 80 years ago; they are the same people who opened their hearts and doors so innocently for those who barely made it with their lives. They did it under the belief in the Arabic saying “??? ???? ?????” which means God’s land can accommodate all.

Little did they know that the ships claiming to bring in refugees turned out to be transporting Zionists pretending to be Jews. Pretending, because humanity’s prophet Moses did not teach theft and is, by all means, exonerated from the criminal practices of these people. You are not a Jew if you do not follow the teachings and example of Moses.

The rockets shot at the occupied land were not an act of attack, they constituted a defense strategy. Terrorism could not have possibly been stopped with dialogue. God knows the Palestinians, with their natural social tendencies to peaceful approaches, had tried for decades, but words were always met with bullets and more extermination. Hence, the “Israelis” were met with reciprocation this time. It seems that a conversation in their own language is what yields results. Unleashing rockets back at them made them desist from leveling more buildings on children like they have done so many times before.

The Palestinians have celebrated the success of stopping another chapter in their holocaust.

Of course, what happened took its toll on an already divided and ailing “Israeli” political scene. The modern-day Heinrich Himmler of the Zionist entity decided to take a quick exit from the council of psychopaths they call government. Lieberman must have finally accepted the fact that being a bouncer at a nightclub does not necessarily qualify him to lead an occupying force. More reverberations took shape in the further plummeting of Netanyahu’s popularity among his people.

The footage that emerged this week of a beautiful symbol exploding while touched by impure hands carried immense significance. When “Israeli” terrorists tried to desecrate the great flag of Palestine with hands drenched in the blood of innocents, it exploded. A flag is the representation of a nation. It was a lesson; the nation will explode and engulf desecrators with fire just like its symbol did. They need to understand that regardless of how long they remain occupying the holy land, it will never be theirs just like it will never lose its real name, Palestine.

Next to the one dealing with the Palestinian resistance unifying in the face of terrorism, another great event took place during this same period. The Arab leaders who have been supporting Zionists in secret for so long have decided to come out in the open. As unfortunate as that may be, it does help put things in perspective. Now, the revelation that Palestine is not limited, as a cause, to Arabs has been confirmed. And now, those Palestinians who waited for the presumed Arab support know that they are not going to receive it.

The positive aspect is that the Palestinians are able to finally make better alliance calculations. The leaders who have always pretended to be supporters of this righteous central cause have made their reality public. The indisputable knowledge that they belong to the “Israeli” camp indicates that whomever they are against must be in the camp supporting Palestine.

The continuous bashing of the Syrian government, Hezbollah, and the Islamic Republic of Iran by the same people who welcome the oppressors of Palestinians does not require a great deal of analysis. The preposterous allegation that a Shiite geographical crescent is being formed to subdue Sunnis has been debunked by the same people who made it.

If there is a crescent in the making, it is one that includes Shiites, Sunnis, Druze, Alawites, Christians, and any other free soul who believes in Palestine.

It is high time to stop listening to the media funded by those who are too busy between offering “Israel” billions to strike Lebanon and turning their diplomatic missions into human slaughterhouses. Or, that of those who give a private mosque tour to the woman who compares the Islamic mosque Azan to dogs barking. People must focus on the deeds and not the words – contemporary history is sufficient to know whose compass is in the right direction, who is suffering from wars and crippling sanctions due to their dedication for Palestine.

May Palestine remain united and may it celebrate many more victories to come.

Western lawmakers call for ‘free elections’ in Bahrain

Fri Nov 9, 2018 03:47PM

The government of Bahrain has come under fire by Western lawmakers against the backdrop of a ban on an opposition party from contesting the upcoming elections in the Arab country.

Bahrain is scheduled to hold parliamentary elections on November 24.

A cross-party group of British lawmakers, including Conservative MP Peter Bottomley, Green Party MP Caroline Lucas, and Liberal Democrat MP Tom Brake, said in a letter to the Foreign Office that Bahrain “effectively bans major opposition figures from holding political office.” They added that a countless number of Bahraini individuals have been “incarcerated on charges that criminalize free expression and assembly.”

“Free and fair elections can only take place if citizens are able to express their views.”

The British lawmakers also referred to the forcible closure of the only independent newspaper, Al-Wasat, back in 2017 and the detention of at least 15 journalists and Bahrain’s most prominent human rights defender Nabeel Rajab for comments deemed critical of the Bahraini state.

“Bahrain may be a key strategic ally to the UK but human rights and democratic values are fundamental pillars of our society and foreign policy”, the letter concluded.

In Ireland, a cross-party group of lawmakers involved in foreign affairs urged the release of all political detainees in Bahrain and permitting international bodies to observe the elections.

Members of the European Parliament also slammed the Bahraini regime for missing the opportunity of the elections “to ease tensions and allow space for open dialogue to take place.”

Some 40 members of the European Parliament composed a letter addressed to Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifah which is to be published next week.

The letter also points to “the enactment of increasingly repressive measures.”

“Under these conditions, Bahrain’s elections cannot be recognized by the international community as free, fair, or legitimate.”

Last week, US Congressmen James McGovern and Randy Hultgren, who are co-chairs of the bipartisan Tom Lantos human rights commission in the US House of Representatives, stressed that it would be difficult for the international community to recognize the upcoming elections as legitimate, noting that Manama “has dissolved two major opposition political societies, barred all members of the societies from running for office on an individual basis, and imprisoned a number of key figures, as well as writers and civil society leaders.”

“In addition, Bahrain’s electoral infrastructure inherently disadvantages the political opposition. There is no independent electoral commission and, to date, there has been no commitment by the government to permit either domestic or international observers,” the letter added.

In May, Bahrain’s parliament approved a bill barring members of the al-Wefaq from running in elections, the latest step in Manama’s political crackdown.

Thousands of anti-regime protesters have held numerous demonstrations in Bahrain on an almost daily basis ever since a popular uprising began in the kingdom on February 14, 2011.

They are demanding that the Al Khalifah dynasty relinquish power and let a just system representing all Bahrainis be established.

Manama has gone to great lengths to clamp down on any sign of dissent. Scores of people have lost their lives and hundreds of others sustained injuries or got arrested as a result of the Al Khalifah regime’s crackdown.

مابين السنونو الاول والسنونو الاخير ربيع عربي .. عواصم العرب تتحول الى كيبوتزات لنتنياهو…

Image may contain: 1 person, sitting

الصورة المعلقة هي للسادات كنت أنوي ان انشرها في مناسبة أخرى لأسأل القراء سؤالا يستدرجهم الى الحقائق والدهشة .. من مثل ان يخمنوا أين هي هذه الصور .. واين هو هذا المقهى؟ .. هل هو في دمشق ام القاهرة ام بغداد؟؟

بقلم نارام سرجون

أحب قبل ان أكتب في شأن أن أثير في القارئ شيئا يجعله يقع في حيرة الفضول .. وكل سطر يأخذه الى سطر آخر وينزلق به كمن يسقط في شلالات وتيارات تتدحرج نحو الوديان .. دون ان يتمكن من التوقف في رحلته المثيرة الا في السطر الأخير ومصب النهر الأخير ..

 ليست مهمتي ان أنصب فخاخا بين السطور تمسك بالقارئ وأنفاسه ويصبح كالطائر الذي علق على مصيدة الدبق .. فالكاتب الذي يمسك قراءه بمصيدة العسل له مشاعر صياد تجاه طرائده وطيوره .. أما أنا فلا أعرف كيف انصب الفخاخ ولااتقن هذا الفن المتوحش ولااحب ان استعمل العسل الا كي اغمس به كلماتي كما يغمس الخبز في العسل للجائعين وأطعمه لمن امتلأ فمه وحلقه بالعلقم والملح في زمن الكذب والنخاسة .. فأرسم للقارئ في كل سطر لوحة غريبة أو خارطة تثير فيه رغبة دفينة في البحث عن كنز مفقود لبحّار ضاع في بحار المعاني وكنزه مدفون في سطور قادمة ..

ولذلك عندما وجدت هذه الصورة القديمة (المرفقة) بالابيض والاسود لمقهى ورصيف وعلى الجدار صور الرئيس المصري انور السادات لم يخطر ببالي ان أنشرها في هذا الوقت .. وكنت أنوي ان انشرها في مناسبة أخرى لأسأل القراء سؤالا يستدرجهم الى الحقائق والدهشة .. من مثل ان يخمنوا أين هي هذه الصور .. واين هو هذا المقهى؟ .. هل هو في دمشق ام القاهرة ام بغداد؟؟ ولأسال عمن يمكن ان يكون الآن صاحب الصورة المعلقة على الجدران ..

ولكن المصادفات عجيبة .. فقد وصلتني رسالة من كاتب مصري تشرح المأساة التي نجح الاسرائيليون في زرعها في عقول الجمهور العربي .. فهذا الكاتب المصري يقترح في رسالته مبادئ – من وجهة نظره – لحل المأساة اليمنية .. ولاحظت ان مبادئه مشوشة جدا فهو كتب لي نشرة محطة العربية كاملة على انها الحل اليمني .. ولكن اخطر مافي رسالته هي مانجده من عقلية انعزالية ضيقة متناقضة مع الواقع والضرورة .. فهو قال

ان آراءه استقبلت ونشرت في الصحف العربية التي وصفتها بأنها لكاتب عربي .. ولكنه اضاف ساخرا .. يصنفونني عربي رغم انني مصري ولست عربيا (واتبعها بكتابة ضحكة استخفاف هههههههههه) ..

وهنا نلاحظ كيف ان هذا الكاتب – وامثاله – هو ثمرة ناضجة لكامب ديفيد التي حولت العقل عند شريحة لايستهان بها من المصريين الى عقل لايرى ابعد من حلايب ورفح والسلوم .. فهذا هو المدى المجدي لرؤيته وتصوراته وأمنه .. فيما يربي الاسرائيليون ابناءهم على ان حدودهم لاتقتصر على فلسطين بل هي:

من الفرات الى النيل !! ..

اي ان كامب ديفيد مسخت الطموحات لدى طبقة من المصريين وجعلتهم لايرون ابعد من رفح وحلايب فيما العين الاسرائيلية ترى الى مابعد الفرات والنيل .. ولاشك ان هذا الجيل الذي سجنته كامب ديفيد بين حلايب ورفح .. قد يجد نفسه يوما قد قصر نظره أكثر وصار بين جمهوريتي حلايب والسلوم المستقلتين .. وهذا ماتشتغل عليه الحملات النفسية التي تديرها مؤسسات اعلامية عربية مبرمجة في اسرائيل .. فهي تحاول حبس العراقيين في أوطان عراقية شيعية وسنية ضيقة .. وحاولت حبس السوريين في اقفاص دويلات طائفية .. وعندما فشلت صارت تحاول جعل المدى الفعال للبصر عن المواطن السوري لاتتعدى معبر المصنع والقائم ونصيب .. ومابعد ذلك لايراه ولايعنيه ولايطمح لمعرفة مايدور خلف هذه المعابر ..

وتذكرت وأنا اقرأ رسالة الكاتب المصري التي حبس فيها نفسه بحدود مصر التي رسمتها لها كامب ديفيد .. تذكرت هذه الصورة للرئيس السادات التي ارسلتها لي صديقة مصرية .. وهذه الصورة تشرح كل المعضلة التي صار فيها بعض المصريين والعرب .. فالصورة المعلقة هي للرئيس السادات في احد شوارع تل ابيب وليست في اي عاصمة عربية ..

والسادات يطلق عليه الاسرائيليون “السنونو الاول” الذي جاء لهم بالعالم العربي بعد ذلك .. ومعهم حق فهذا السنونو المصري كان اول سنونو يعلن عن وصول الربيع العربي .. منذ اربعين عاما ..

فهو أول من كسر حاجز العداوة مع الاسرائيليين وحولهم من اعداء الى اصدقاء .. وكان اول الواصلين الى أحضان الاسرائيليين وأقفاصهم التي زينوا بها بيتهم من الفرات الى النيل بقفص فيه سنونو مصري .. تلته بعد ذلك اسراب السنونو العربية .. سنونو الاردن .. وسنونوات لبنان وزمن آل الجميل الذين قتلوا انفسهم من أجل صداقة اسرائيل

وطبعا وصل السنونو الفلسطيني من اوسلو ..

وبعده وصلت اسراب السنونو الخليجية .. والتي لحقت بها جماعات السنونو الاسلامية والاخوان المسلمين والسنونو العثماني .. وعندما وصل الربيع العربي ومعه السنونو الاسلامي وجد ان اسرائيل صديقة وان اعداءه في مكان آخر .. ودخل نتنياهو الى عواصم كان لايقدر ان يدخلها الا بالحرب فاذا به يدخلها ضيفا عزيزا كريما وضيف شرف ..

واليوم فانني استغرب فعلا هذه الدهشة التي ملأت أفواه الناس من صور نتنياهو يتجول في مسقط مع زوجته سارة .. رغم ان نتنياهو في بلاد العرب انما يتجول في مستعمراته وكيبوتزاته ..

واليوم يستطيع نتنياهو وكل حكومته ان يزوروا عواصم لايقدر اي زعيم عربي ان يدخلها .. بل ان المجال الحيوي لنتنياهو أكبر بمئة مرة من المجال الحيوي للسيد حسن نصرالله قائد المقاومة وللرئيس بشار الاسد ..

نتنياهو يقدر ان يزور الآن مصر والاردن والسعودية ونصف لبنان والخليج كله من بابه الى محرابه.. ويقدر ان يزور ليبيا وتونس والمغرب وادلب التي لاتزال تحت سيطرة المسلحين الاسلاميين “العثمانيين” ويستطيع ان يزور شمال العراق حيث اقليم البرزاني الكردي .. وهو يقدر ان يزور تركيا من شرقها غربها .. وكلها مناطق مفتوحة امام اسرائيل ومغلقة على المقاومين وكل من لم يوقع اتفاق استسلام لاسرائيل ..

وبعد ان كان المهاجر اليهودي منذ عقود قليلة لايقدر ان ينتقل من كيبوتز الى كيبوتز في فلسطين الا ليلا وبحماية قوافل من السلاح .. فانه اليوم صنع من عواصم العرب كيبوتزات يزورها نهارا ويتسلى فيها ويتنزه ويلتقط الصور في مولاتها وحتى في الكعبة .. فيما تحول المقاومون الى مطاردين في العالم العربي ..

وصار الاسرائيلي يمنح فيزا تليق به فيما السوري والعراقي والفلسطيني يحول الى لاجئ في الخيام يتم تصويره لبيع صوره وصور اولاده وبناته وتتحول الى ملصقات انتخابية لاردوغان او لحملة تجنيد لمقاتلين جهاديين يقاتلون في كل مكان الا في فلسطين ..

اسرائيل اقامت دولتها على فلسفة تجاهل الشعوب العربية والتركيز على القيادات فهي استندت في قيامها على علاقات مع الاسر المالكة الهاشمية والاسرة السعودية والملك فاروق في مصر ولاحقا الاسر الحاكمة في الخليج المحتل .. ولكنها في مرحلة لاحقة انتقلت الى عملية تضليل الشعوب العربية وايهامها ان اسرائيل هي الهمّ الاصغر تجاه هموم الحرية والديمقراطية وحكم الشرع الاسلامي واحياء الخلافة و”الخلافات” .. وان مشكلة الشعوب العربية هي فلسطين وليست اسرائيل .. وان حل كل أزمات العالم العربي يمكن في تجاوز منطق الممانعة والانتقال الى منطق التطبيع وعفا الله عما مضى ..

Image result for ‫وجوه عربية وعثمانية‬‎

على جدران تل ابيب يجب ان تعلق صور وجوه عربية وعثمانية كثيرة وصور ذات لحى ايضا .. وكل اسراب السنونو العربية .. ولكن جدران اسرائيل لم تعد تتسع لصور الطيور وللاعلانات .. لانها تزدحم بصور مشاريع توسيع المستوطنات والهيكل القادم في القدس .. والمفارقة ان الشوارع العربية ستزدحم جدرانها ولوحاتها بصور الناصر نتنياهو .. محرر القدس .. والأمين على الاقصى .. راعي العرب .. وشيخهم .. وحبيبهم .. انه عسل للجائعين ولمن امتلأ فمه العربي وحلقه الاسلامي بالعلقم والملح ..

No More Shyness: AUB Normalizing with the ’Israeli’ Enemy!

Marwa Osman

Treason is not a perspective.  Treason is an act of betraying one’s country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies.  It is a crime defined in every state’s constitution and is punishable by death in many countries. Why should it be any different in Lebanon?

Well, it is not but as we all know by now, Lebanon is a special country in nearly every aspect of life.  Whether it is a social, political or a military scandal, we tend to have multiple views around it and bicker until a new scandal starts to trend.  This time however, I chose to write about it to make sure legal action is taken against the American University of Beirut [AUB].

It is not acceptable for a university within the Lebanese borders from whomever it is funded by to break the law blatantly and without any remorse while the Lebanese judiciary system sits and watches.

The screenshot you see below this Op-Ed’s title is that of an email sent to AUB students by the career center of AUB. The career center is a department within AUB and its role is to secure jobs for AUB graduate students and internships of AUB undergraduate students.

As clearly stated in the email, the job offer sent by the AUB career center is in a company called “Check Point Software Technologies.”  Now, Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. is an “Israeli” multinational provider of software and combined hardware and software products for IT security, including network security, endpoint security, mobile security, data security, and security management.  Its headquarters are in Tel Aviv“Israel” [occupied Palestine] and San Carlos, CaliforniaUSA as shown in the table below which can be easily found with a little research. The company was founded by “Israeli” nationals Gil Shwed, Shlomo Kramer and Marius Nacht in 1993.

One can see this screenshot and ask why is AUB doing this?  What motive do the people urging the students to take on such job offers bear in mind? It is quite simple to be honest; it is for the end goal of normalization with Lebanon’s enemy,
“Israel”. The same “Israel” that has carpet-bombed Beirut the capital of Lebanon, its suburbs, its southern districts, and the entire country’s infrastruction several times over the past 40 years.  Apparently, what AUB still does not fathom is that normalization with the enemy is a crime.

Whether those running AUB acknowledge normalization as a crime or not is not the case and should not be the case.  The case is simply AUB broke the law by offering this job because it is giving its students the chance to travel and work in
“Israel” while “travel, accommodation and training expenses are covered by the company.”  Hence, it is not only encouraging normalization; it is tempting students to do it by securing full payment coverage as they go for it and betray their country.

We already know that AUB most probably will try to dodge this crime by saying the job offer is not for Lebanese students rather for foreign ones.  However, what AUB seemingly refuses to acknowledge is that its campus falls on Lebanese territories and hence is within the jurisdiction of the Lebanese law and any crime committed shall be dealt with by Lebanese authorities.

Letting this one go this time, will permeate further violations of the Lebanese law by the same university of by other institutions operating inside Lebanon under the pretext of “it’s not for Lebanese students,” or “it slipped our minds” or “we are sorry, it won’t happen again.”

By exposing such behavior, we as Lebanese trust the Lebanese authorities will take the right legal actions against those who have committed this crime. I will not hide the fact that this also makes me concerned a lot for the future of my children’s education in this country if such acts of normalization are not dealt with swiftly and firmly.  AUB is indeed a very prestigious and esteemed university at the level of the quality of education and knowledge it provides, but it seems those running it need a reminder that it is operating on Lebanese soil to provide education and knowledge to “Lebanese” students first before any other foreign student.

AUB already had several head turning decisions like that of terminating the job of Palestinian American professor Steven Salaita for no apparent reason other than stimulation a few Zionists back in the US and “Israel” for offering him a job to begin with.  Another incident worth mentioning is when AUB banned independent political analyst Dr. Mohammad Marandi from participating in a BBC debate that was scheduled to take place on March 8, 2018 on AUB campus on the basis that he is “Iranian”. That was a decision made by the American University of Beirut, which hails itself as a sanctuary of freethinking in the Middle East and claims to provide a platform for freedom of speech.

Similarly, this new decision to offer such a job that seeks to normalize ties with Lebanon’s number one enemy was also made by the American University of Beirut which supposedly encourages in the about section of its website the “freedom of thought[…] personal integrity, civic responsibility, and leadership.” Maybe AUB’s board of trustees should reinstate the university’s mission if those employed in it have set their minds to include “normalization” within the university’s vision for their current and future students.

The ’Israelis’ of the Kingdom Are Present

Latifa al-Husseini

In April, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman declared his position on the normalization of ties with the Zionists during his tour to the United States. He openly told the US magazine, The Atlantic, “The “Israelis” have the right to have their own land. … Our country doesn’t have a problem with Jews. … There are a lot of interests we share with “Israel”.”

This is what is useful to the “young prince”; the gradual normalization of ties, which he actually intentionally expressed through meetings, statements and media platforms launched to promote his position. His various methods work and strive to create and convince public opinion of the usefulness of appeasing the enemy to the point of allying with it. The goal is to confront Iran and portray it as the greatest threat to the kingdom.

Bin Salman relays on a group of writers and broadcasters to spread the concepts of “peace” and harmony with the Jews. Some of those are former Al-Arabiya channel director Abdel Rahman Al-Rashed, as well as writers Ahmad Al-Arfaj, Ahmed Al-Faraj, Turki Al-Hamad, Mohammed Al-Sheikh, Hamza Al-Salem, Saud Al-Fawzan, Suad Al-Shammari and last but not least Daham Al-Enezi who called for the establishment of a Zionist embassy in Riyadh.

In addition there are those who are fluent in Hebrew. They compete on social networking sites to attract Zionist activists from within the occupied territories and interact with them under the title of “electronic peace”, at least until now. They have the absolute freedom to court figures within the usurping entity and its axis as long as they agree on attacking the Islamic Republic and inciting against it.

Because tweeting in Hebrew is not a crime in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi writer and programmer, Louay Al-Sharif, addresses the Zionists all the time through his Twitter account. He chooses to tweet in Hebrew to comment on local or even regional news. A few months ago, he recorded a video clip in which he said that “Saudi Arabia has never threatened any of ‘its neighbors’.” He also called on ” the ‘people of “Israel”’ to read the news accurately.” This message was well received by Tel Aviv, so much so that it took care of broadcasting it.

Al-Sharif, who is known for his strong relationship with the royal court and for his role in the Saudi Crown Prince’s “MiSK” Foundation, allocates his [Twitter] account to acquaint his more than 150,000 followers to the “people” of “Israel” and their history. He claims to interact with Zionist tweeters based on his interest in “Jewish heritage”.

Similarly, Abdul Rahman al-Qahtani, who presents himself as a person interested in Hebrew and is fond of Bin Salman, is also active. Al-Qahtani’s posts highlight his focus on attacking Iran and resistance movements in Palestine and the region. He even retweets Zionist and American activists who attack Hamas and glorifies the crown prince. He is keen to use the flag of “Israel” in most of his Tweets that are related to the usurper entity and Saudi Arabia.

In turn, the phenomenon of tweeting in Hebrew has begun spreading among Saudi activists on Twitter. One of them, Abu Omar, identifies himself as having a BA in Hebrew. His account might be real or fake. However, its content centers on his “easy” experience in learning Hebrew, the idea of “peace” with the enemy and criticizing the Palestinians. Another Saudi tweeter (the centrist) says: “The time has come to learn Hebrew!”

Meanwhile, Mohammad al-Ghalban pioneers the Saudi figures that master the enemy’s language. He has a PHD in Hebrew. He is a professor of Hebrew and Jewish studies at the Department of Modern Languages ??and Translation at the College of Languages ??and Translation at King Saud University in Riyadh. He has an MA and a PHD in Philosophy from the Faculty of Arts, the Department of Near Eastern Languages ??and its Cultures in the Indiana-Bloomington University, USA. His general specialization is Hebrew, and his secondary one is in Jewish studies. He has more than 20 years of experience in Modern Hebrew and translation. Not only that, but King Saud University presents him as someone who has extensive knowledge of what appears in Zionist media, is well-informed in “Israeli” and Jewish studies and abreast with the provisions of Jewish religious laws and cultures. He is even fluent in “Yiddish” which is the language of Ashkenazi Jews.

Al-Ghabban believes that the negative attitudes in Saudi Arabia towards the study of Hebrew will change, noting that “a decade ago it was seen as an enemy’s language, but now it is the language of the other,” as he puts it.

The Hebrew Language Program is one of the programs of the Department of Modern Languages and Translation at the College of Languages and Translation at King Saud University. It was activated when the Language and Translation Institute was transformed into a College of Languages and Translation at King Saud University under the 1994 Royal Decree. It is the only program in the Gulf region in general and in the Kingdom in particular that grants a bachelor’s degree in translation from and to Hebrew.

Saudi Arabia is not likely to stop these activities but rather expand them and perhaps open more institutes that teach Hebrew. In this context, Louay Al-Sherif spoke about the allocation of an educational platform for the teaching of languages, including Hebrew that will be launched soon in the Kingdom. Will Bin Salman be the first to join or will there be no need for it in light of the full understanding and harmony with the Zionists?

It can be said today that Saudi Arabia is unable to surprise Arab public opinion in general and the Saudi one in particular, as it placed it at the heart of its normalization policy. It is only concerned about its hostility towards Iran, and nothing else. Originally, it derives from the former Mufti Abdul Aziz bin Baz’s fatwa regarding reconciliation with the Jews.  Justifications for the ratification of the upcoming agreement of humiliation with Tel Aviv derive from this fatwa. But the question is why was the announcement delayed, especially since the popular base is ready for it? What is the Royal Court waiting for following the secret meetings between Bin Salman and Zionist officials in the occupied territories and before that in the United States in March and April, according to leaks by “Israeli” and American media?

Israeli Media: “Unprecedented” MBS’s Statements on ‘Israel’ Existence Resembles Balfour Declaration

 April 4, 2018

MBS

The Israeli media outlets considered that the statements made by the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman on the Zionist right to establish a national state in Palestine resembles Balfour’s Declaration, adding that after 100 years, Balfour’s Declaration was redrafted by an Arab official.

Haartez said that Saudi is ready to cooperate with the Zionist entity before signing a peace treaty, noting that the Saudi and Israeli officials have met to set the security coordination between the two sides.

The Zionist entity also welcomed MBS’s statements, and media circles called for inviting him to attend the celebrations which commemorate the 70th anniversary of establishing ‘Israel’.

SAUDI CROWN PRINCE ADMITS SAUDIS “FINANCED TERRORIST GROUPS”, BLESSES ISRAELI STATEHOOD

SAUDI CROWN PRINCE ADMITS SAUDIS “FINANCED TERRORIST GROUPS”, BLESSES ISRAELI STATEHOOD

South Front

Originally appeared at Zero Hedge

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) admitted in a wide-ranging interview in The Atlantic that Saudi nationals have funded terrorist groups, and quite stunningly – that Israelis are entitled to live peacefully on their own land  yet another indicator that the relationship between Riyadh and Tel Aviv is strengthening.

Saudi Crown Prince Admits Saudis "Financed Terrorist Groups", Blesses Israeli Statehood

When it comes to financing extremist groups, I challenge anyone if he can bring any evidence that the Saudi government financed terrorist groups. Yes, there are people from Saudi Arabia who financed terrorist groups. This is against Saudi law. We have a lot of people in jail now, not only for financing terrorist groups, but even for supporting them. –The Atlantic

Bin Salman’s comments come days after a U.S. judge rejected Saudi Arabia’s request to dismiss lawsuits accusing it of involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

The cases are based on the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (Jasta), a 2016 law that provides an exemption to the legal principle of sovereign immunity, allowing families of the victims to take foreign governments to court.

The families point to the fact that the majority of the hijackers were Saudi citizens, and claim that Saudi officials and institutions “aided and abetted” the attackers in the years leading up to the 9/11 attacks, according to court documents. Middle East Eye

MbS also told The Atlantic when asked if Jewish people have a right to a nation-state in at least part of their ancestral homeland:

I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land. But we have to have a peace agreement to assure the stability for everyone and to have normal relations…  We have religious concerns about the fate of the holy mosque in Jerusalem and about the rights of the Palestinian people. This is what we have. We don’t have any objection against any other people. This is what we have. We don’t have any objection against any other people”

Saudi Arabia does not currently recognize Israel – maintaining for years that normalizing relations all depends on the withdrawal from Arab lands captured in the 1967 Middle East War – territory Palestinians claim to be theirs for the establishment of a future state.

There are a lot of interests we share with Israel and if there is peace,” MbS added. “There would be a lot of interest between Israel and the Gulf Cooperation Council countries and countries like Egypt and Jordan”

Behold the “Coalition to fight terrorism”

Saudi Crown Prince Admits Saudis "Financed Terrorist Groups", Blesses Israeli Statehood

Recall that the first two stops Donald Trump made as President were Saudi Arabia and Israel, where he met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman to discuss a coalition to fight terrorism – which, aside from the US and Israel, includes Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the UAE, Bahrain, Oman and Jordan – assembled to fight the Islamic State and curtail Iran’s regional ambitions.

Last November, the 32-year-old bin Salman announced plans to “wipe terrorists from the face of the earth,” by forming a coalition of 40 Muslim countries to defeat ISIS.

Speaking at a summit of defence ministers from across 41 majority-Muslim countries he spoke of a need for a “pan-Islamic united front” against terrorism.

He said: “In past years, terrorism has been functioning in all of our countries… with no coordination among national authorities.

“That ends today, with this alliance.” –express.co.uk

The first official meeting of the new Muslim alliance was held a week later – just two days after an attack at a Mosque in Egypt killed over 300 people, including 30 children – in what was called the country’s worst terrorism incident.

Meanwhile, bin Salman traveled to Washington D.C. in March, where he began what’s been described as a cross-country road show to lure American firms and investment to Saudi Arabia – a crucial component of his “Vision 2030” plan to wean the ultraconservative kingdom’s economy off its reliance on oil.

Since being appointed heir to the thrown, MbS, 32, has embarked on what fawning US media have described as an “ambitious” reform agenda.

In an interview with the The Atlantic published on Monday, MBS said, “I believe that each people, anywhere, has a right to live in their peaceful nation. I believe the Palestinians and the ‘Israelis’ have the right to have their own land.”

“But we have to have a peace agreement to assure the stability for everyone and to have normal relations,” he added.

He added that kingdom has no problems with Jews and that “there are a lot of interests we share with ‘Israel’.”

He further noted that Saudi Arabia would establish economic ties with the Tel Aviv regime after conflict with the Palestinian Authority is settled.

The announcement is the latest step in the kingdom’s path moving towards normalization of diplomatic relations with the Tel Aviv regime.

On Friday, MBS met with the leaders of a number of pro-“Israeli” lobbying groups during his tour of the United States.

According to a leaked copy of his itinerary, the “Israeli” Haaretz daily reported that bin Salman had conferred with officials from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Stand Up for “Israel” (ADL), the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), Presidents’ Conference, B’nai B’rith and the American Jewish Committee (AJC).

Speaking in an interview with France 24 television news network on December 13, 2017, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said the kingdom has a “roadmap” to establish full diplomatic ties with the Tel Aviv regime.

The “Israeli” military’s chief-of-staff, Gadi Eizenkot, recently said the regime was ready to share intelligence with Saudi Arabia on Iran.
