‘Israeli’ opposition leader Isaac Herzog confirmed that he, along with Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited leaders in the Arab world, saying: “I met with leaders that have never been seen by ‘Israeli’ eyes. The political process I was in charge of was huge, and it gives hope of building a Palestinian state,” ‘Israel’ Hayom reported.

Herzog, however, said he was “not ready for any one-sided step,” the newspaper added. “There is an alternative coalition in our hands. Proper work might defragment Netanyahu’s coalition,” he added.

Herzog’s remarks were made on the eve of the preliminary elections of the Zionist “Labor” Party which will take place on Tuesday to elect a new president.

Estimations, however, show that none of the candidates will win 40% of the votes, the required percentage for someone to win, expecting to hold another round next Monday.

From the horse’s mouth– Syrian Rebels: ‘We Want Peace With Israel, Real Enemy Is Iran’

 

Breaking Israel News

A leading member of Syria’s political opposition said most Syrians view Iran as the real enemy and not Israel, adding that Israel could do more to help the Syrian people.

“We want peace with Israel, and today, among the opposition in Syria, most people understand that the enemy is Iran and not Israel, so there is a good chance that there will be peace in the future,” said Salim Hudaifa, a former Syrian military officer who serves as a political representative of the opposition’s Free Syrian Army, at the Eurasian Media Forum in Kazakhstan.

Hudaifa is a former intelligence officer who abandoned Syria’s military in the 1990s and eventually gained asylum in Denmark. During the Syrian Civil War, Hudaifa was recruited by the U.S. to head a program to train the Free Syrian Army, but the program was eventually abandoned by the U.S. Defense Department.

“Israel needs to do more and help the rebels. People here are disappointed [with Israel]. There are also quite a few who think that [the Israelis] are helping [Syrian President Bashar] Assad, because they see that the Israeli-Syrian border is quiet,” Hudaifa said during a forum attended by Israeli dignitaries such as Gilead Sher, the Jewish state’s former chief peace negotiator.

“I think [Israel] can be more proactive and help us,” added Hudaifa. “Regarding the treatment of the wounded in your hospitals, it certainly improved Israel’s image in the eyes of Syrians, but only in a limited way. The reason is that the Arab media does not report it.”

Israel is secretly supporting Syrian rebel groups along its border with Syria in the Golan Heights, providing rebels with funds, food, fuel and medical supplies, The Wall Street Journal reported last week.

While Israel has largely refrained from getting involved in the six-year-long civil war, it has periodically carried out airstrikes in Syria when its interests are threatened. These strikes have mainly been against the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah, which is significantly involved in supporting Assad’s regime in the conflict.

الأتراك في جزيرة العرب بعد مئة عام.. ها قد عدنا يا شريف حسين

 

على خلفية الأزمة بين قطر والسعودية والإمارات، فعل سريعا البرلمان التركي  قرارا يسمح بنشر قوات تركية في قطر كجزء من اتفاقية بين البلدين خاصة بإنشاء قاعدة عسكرية تركية في قطر، حصل هذا في الأيام الأولى للأزمة كما هو معروف.

وكما هو مجرب أيضا فإن القوات التركية لا تدخل  أرضا خارج حدودها وتخرج منها ، وأمامنا تجربة العراقيين مع القوات التركية في معسكر بعشيقة قضاء الموصل.

هناك تحول هذا الوجود إلى أزمة بين البلدين، رفضت تركيا الخروج تحت أي ظرف، بل خرج خطاب تركي من دفاتر التاريخ يتحدث عن الوضع التاريخي للموصل  كإحدى ولايات الدولة العثمانية حتى نهاية الحرب العالمية الأولى.

ذاك خطاب التاريخ الذي أيقظه حزب العدالة والتنمية منذ حكم تركيا وازادت وتيرته ووضوحه، مع اندلاع الأحداث الدامية في عالمنا العربي، خاصة في سوريا، التي دخل إلى شمالها الجيش التركي قبل عام مباشرة، بعد أن اعتمد أنقرة  لسنوات على مجموعات مسلحة تابعة لها هناك، وذات خطاب التاريخ عن الموصل سمعناه عن حلب، لا أحد يستطيع أن يقدر الآن متى وكيف ستخرج القوات التركية من شمال سوريا.

أما الوضع في جزيرة العرب ومع قطر تحديدا فهو مختلف . صحيح أن القوات التركية دخلت الدول العربية الثلاث إثر أزمات، الا ان في حالة قطر فالقوات التركية تدخلها ضمن اتفاق بين دولتين. الأمر قد يبدو اعتياديا في حالة دولتين متحالفتين تشعر إحداهما بالخطر.

بيد  أن الخطاب السياسي والإعلامي القطري وكذلك التركي شن حملات ضد سوريا على خلفية استعانتها بقوات إيرانية حليفة، وهي كانت امام  خطر وجودي كان خلفه دول بينها تركيا وقطر، والآن ذات الإعلام الذي عاب ماقام به الرئيس الأسد، يعتبر قرار الأمير تميم قرارا سياديا.

في نهاية المطاف جاءت القوات التركية إلى جزيرة العرب بعد مئة عام على رحيلها.

الأمر الذي يدفعنا للربط بين العثمانيين المحتلين للأرض العربية في الزمن الغابر  وبين القوات التركية المتسللة اليوم إلى ذات البقاع ، هو فكر وخطاب حزب العدالة والتنمية الحاكم في تركيا ورئيس البلاد رجب طيب أردوغان اليوم، وهم يتحدثون عن العثمانية الجديدة وأحياء السلطنة العثمانية، ويعملون في الداخل والخارج ضمن هذه المرجعية التاريخية.

قبل ما يقرب المئة عام قاد الشريف “حسين بن علي”  الثورة العربية الكبرى لطرد العثمانيين من جزيرة العرب ، ورغم كل ما مرت به المنطقة العربية من كوارث بعدها ، إلا أن الأتراك لم يدخلوها من ذاك التاريخ.

واليوم يسجل التاريخ وصول القوات التركية على خلفية الأزمة بين دول الخليج، وربما لن يخرجوا منها سواء كان الأمير تميم حاكما لقطر أو أيا كان، وسواء كانت السعودية دولة أو مجموعة دول.  لأن هذا الهزال والوهن والهوان والعبث العربي لن يفضي إلا إلى هذه النتيجة. وهذا الطريق الذي يسلكه هؤلاء القادة العرب جميعهم وليس فقط قادة الخليج لن يورث المنطقة إلا  العودة الاحتلال والتبعية المباشرة، والوصاية ممن هم أكثر نضجا وإدراكا لمصالحهم ومصالح شعوبهم.

يقول المؤرخون عندما احتل الفرنسيون دمشق عام 1920، توجه الجنرال الفرنسي “غورو” قائد القوات الغازية إلى قبر صلاح الدين الأيوبي، وضربه بقدمه قائلا “هاقد عدنا يا صلاح الدين”.

فهل سيقولها الأتراك قريبا فوق ضريح الشريف” حسين بن علي” الذي طرد العثمانيين من جزيرة العرب، “هاقد عدنا يا “حسين بن علي”.

Syrian Op. Official: We Want Peace with Friendly ’Israel’!

28-06-2017 | 12:29

Once again it’s the common interests and normalization that governs the relation between the Syrian opposition and the apartheid “Israeli” entity.

Salim Hudaifah, political representative of the so-called “Free Syrian Army” revealed that “Israel” conducts extensive intelligence activities in Syria.

“We do not need the help of “Israel”, we have people on the ground, and we know very well what ISIS is doing. We want peace with “Israel”, and today, among the opposition in Syria, most people understand that the enemy is Iran and not “Israel”, so there is a good chance that there will be peace in the future.

So said Hudaifah during his participation in the Eurasian Media Forum.

He blatantly further added: “”Israel” needs to do more and help the ‘rebels’. People here are disappointed [with “Israel”]. There are also quite a few who think that you are helping al-Assad, because they see that the “Israeli”-Syrian border is quiet.

“I think you can be more proactive and help us. Regarding the treatment of the wounded in your hospitals, it certainly improved “Israel’s” image in the eyes of Syrians, but only in a limited way. The reason is that the Arab media does not report it.”

Israeli Minister Calls For Full Saudi Ties And Official Riyadh Visit

Intelligence minister Yisrael Katz has also invited King Salman to send new crown prince to Israel to establish mutual ties

By MEE and agencies

June 23, 2017 “Information Clearing House” – Senior Israeli ministers have called on Saudi Arabia’s King

Salman to establish full diplomatic relations with Israel.

Speaking at the Herzliya conference on Thursday, Israel’s intelligence and transportation minister Yisrael Katz asked King Salman to invite Prime Minister Netanyahu to Riyadh and to send newly appointed Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Tel Aviv in return.

“I call upon Salman, the King of Saudi, to invite the prime minister of Israel Netanyahu to visit Saudi Arabia,” Katz said, at the annual gathering of Israeli political leaders and strategists.

“We saw what a wonderful host you can be… when President Trump was there. You can also send your heir, the new one, Prince Mohammed bin Salman. He’s a dynamic person. He is an initiator. And he wants to break through.

“Exactly this way… they know who Iran is. They know we have to create an access vis-a-vis Iran. You can send him for a meeting in Israel and I promise you, he’s going to be a very welcome guest.”

Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s defence minister, also called for “full diplomatic and economic relations” at the conference.

A peace deal must be reached with “moderate Arab Sunni countries” before a peace agreement could be made with the Palestinians, Lieberman said.

He said: “The only light at the end of the tunnel is a complete regional agreement.” The hard-right defence minister added: “Full diplomatic and economic relations. Not under the table, but on the table.”

“I saw research on what the result of a regional agreement and full economic relations would mean between Israel, the Gulf countries and Saudi Arabia. This would mean an additional revenue of $45bn for Israel. That’s the potential. We have to clearly say what our priorities are.”

Prince Salman’s appointment as crown prince and heir to the Saudi throne has brought renewed hope of a rapprochement between the two countries, according to communications minister Ayoub Kara.

“Salman’s appointment means more economic cooperation in the Middle East, and not just regarding oil,” Kara said in a statement. “The strengthening of relations with the Trump administration is the beginning of a new and optimistic time between Saudi Arabia and regional states, including Israel and the Jewish people.”

Saudi Arabia has refused to recognise Israel since its inception in 1948 and has supported Palestinian rights to sovereignty over territory occupied by Israel since 1967. However, the Gulf kingdom did not participate in any of the Arab-Israeli Wars.

Both countries see Iran as a strategic threat and are close allies of the United States, while recent years have seen growing ties between the bastion of Sunni Islam and the self-proclaimed “Jewish state”.

Israel has also been supportive of a blockade of Qatar led by Saudi Arabia. Tel Aviv has repeatedly called on Qatar not to give asylum to key Palestinian figures, including Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal and Azmi Bishara.

During a tour of the Middle East last month, US President Donald Trump flew directly from Saudi Arabia to Israel in a flight dubbed a “historic moment” in relations between the two countries by deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Talks aimed at establishing economic ties between the countries began last week, according to The Times. Arab and American sources said the links would start small and allow Israeli businesses to operate in the Gulf, and possibly allow El Al, the national airline to fly over Saudi airspace.

فيصل طالب جونسون بشنّ حرب 1967 لإضعاف مصر وسورية والفلسطينيّين

 

يونيو 13, 2017

بعث الملك السعودي الأسبق فيصل بن عبد العزيز رسالة إلى الرئيس الأميركي السابق ليندون جونسون قبل حرب 1967،

والرسالة منشورة في كتاب «عقود من الخيبات» للكاتب حمدان حمدان، الطبعة الأولى 1995 عن دار «بيسان» على الصفحات من 489 – 491.

تقول الرسالة التي بعثها الملك فيصل إلى الرئيس جونسون وهي وثيقة حملت تاريخ 27 كانون الأول/ ديسمبر 1966، كما حملت رقم 342 من أرقام وثائق مجلس الوزراء السعودي ما يلي:

من كلّ ما تقدم يا فخامة الرئيس، ومما عرضناه بإيجاز يتبيّن لكم أنّ مصر هي العدو الأكبر لنا جميعاً، وأنّ هذا العدو إنْ ترك يحرّض ويدعم الأعداء عسكرياً وإعلامياً، فلن يأتي عام 1970، كما قال الخبير في إدارتكم السيد كيرميت روزفلت، وعرشنا ومصالحنا في الوجود…

لذلك فإنني أبارك، ما سبق للخبراء الأميركان في مملكتنا، أن اقترحوه، لأتقدّم بالاقتراحات التالية:

– أن تقوم أميركا بدعم «إسرائيل» بهجوم خاطف على مصر تستولي به على أهمّ الأماكن حيوية في مصر، لتضطرها بذلك، لا إلى سحب جيشها صاغرة من اليمن فقط، بل لإشغال مصر بـ«إسرائيل» عنا مدة طويلة لن يرفع بعدها أيّ مصري رأسه خلف القناة، ليحاول إعادة مطامع محمد علي وعبد الناصر في وحدة عربية.

بذلك نعطي لأنفسنا مهلة طويلة لتصفية أجساد المبادئ الهدامة، لا في مملكتنا فحسب، بل وفي البلاد العربية ومن ثم بعدها، لا مانع لدينا من إعطاء المعونات لمصر وشبيهاتها من الدول العربية اقتداء بالقول أرحموا شرير قوم ذُلّ وكذلك لاتقاء أصواتهم الكريهة في الإعلام…

– سورية هي الثانية التي لا يجب ألا تسلم من هذا الهجوم، مع اقتطاع جزء من أراضيها، كيلا تتفرّغ هي الأخرى فتندفع لسدّ الفراغ بعد سقوط مصر.

– لا بدّ أيضاً من الاستيلاء على الضفة الغربية وقطاع غزة، كيلا يبقى للفلسطينيين أيّ مجال للتحرك، وحتى لا تستغلهم أية دولة عربية بحجة تحرير فلسطين، وحينها ينقطع أمل الخارجين منهم بالعودة، كما يسهل توطين الباقي في الدول العربية.

– نرى ضرورة تقوية الملا مصطفى البرزاني شمال العراق، بغرض إقامة حكومة كردية مهمّتها إشغال أيّ حكم في بغداد يريد أن ينادي بالوحدة العربية شمال مملكتنا في أرض العراق سواء في الحاضر أو المستقبل،

علماً بأننا بدأنا منذ العام الماضي 1965 بإمداد البرزاني بالمال والسلاح من داخل العراق، أو عن طريق تركيا وإيران.

يا فخامة الرئيس.

إنكم ونحن متضامنون جميعاً سنضمن لمصالحنا المشتركة ولمصيرنا المعلّق، بتنفيذ هذه المقترحات أو عدم تنفيذها، دوام البقاء أو عدمه…

Syrian opposition says Palestinians are ‘living in paradise’

 

The Ugly Truth

syria-israel

‘Israel’s help is vital,’ says representative of Free Syrian Army in rare meeting with Israelis; Zionist Union MK insists ‘Assad must go’

Times of Israel

A rare public meeting between Israelis and Syrians in Jerusalem on Tuesday was interrupted by Palestinian protesters who expressed outrage that Syrians would work with Israelis. The protesters met with a furious response from the Syrians, who accused them of failing to understand what true oppression involves.

“You are living in a paradise compared to Syria,” Issam Zeitoun, a liaison for the Free Syrian Army with the international community, told the protesters as they refused to stop shouting and allow the event to continue. “You should be ashamed.”

The altercation occurred at a packed hall at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where a Free Syrian Army liaison and a Syrian Kurdish representative spoke to students at an event organized by the university’s Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace.

“I wasn’t surprised by what happened. I expect that people will behave like this when I speak at an Israeli institution because it is really a serious matter,” Zeitoun told The Times of Israel afterwards.

“Many Syrians and Palestinians see us as traitors,” he said. “I don’t think anyone can judge Syrians for speaking with Israelis in public.

“The intensity of the conflict, and the number of the people we have lost, is too great, and I will personally do all that I can and speak with everyone, not just in Israel, but around the world, in order to change the situation,” he added.

After the protests had died down, Zeitoun told the crowd that Israeli aid to Syrians, which includes Israel’s well-known medical assistance — more than 2,000 Syrians have been treated in Israeli hospitals since 2013 — is not enough to influence the population to be more pro-Israel. He said there needed to be some action on the political level for the majority of Syrians to be swayed in its attitude to the Jewish state.

Zeitoun, who has become a familiar Syrian opposition representative in the Israeli press, argued that Israel should help create a safe zone in southern Syria, where he is from.

Zeitoun told The Times of Israel he did not believe Israel should intervene militarily, but should make itself felt politically in the Syrian conflict.

“Israel should play a role in getting the political cover from the Russians and the Americans [for a safe zone], and we’ll do the rest,” he said.

He argued that a safe zone could be created on Syria’s border with Israel, and would mark the start of a return to normalcy in the country, where civilian infrastructures such as schools and hospitals, not to mention civil society institutions, have been decimated by six years of bloody war.

The Syrian war has claimed over 400,000 lives, according to UN estimates, and driven millions from their homes.

The discussion was led by Zionist Union MK Ksenia Svetlova, a former journalist who covered the Arab world in Israeli and Russian media, a member of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee and the current chair of the Knesset’s caucus for Israeli-Kurdish relations. Syrian Kurdish author and journalist Sirwan Kajjo, who hails from the Syrian border town of Qamishili but now lives in Washington, DC, was also on the panel.

According to Svetlova, Israeli cabinet ministers, when they meet on Syria, often ask, “Who is there on the other side that we can talk to and prepare for the next stage?”

She noted that the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah, which is committed to destroying Israel, has grown stronger after six years of fighting in Syria.

“In 2017 we will see the increasing influence of Hezbollah. We will have to make hard choices in regard to action or inaction in Syria,” she said.

Speaking to The Times of Israel after the event, Svetlova criticized those who argue it would be better to allow Syrian strongman Bashar Assad to retake control of the country and bring the war to an end. That would inevitably lead to another rebellion, she contended.

“Every forceful control of a population will end up in rebellion. When they say we need to bring Assad back from the grave, they forget that the slaughter, and the chaos that erupted after, was his doing. To bring back the dictatorship is never the answer,” she said.

Asked if she would accept Assad’s return alongside political reforms, she responded, “If he was going to bring political reforms, he would have introduced them already.”

“Bringing him back will be much worse. It will strengthen [Islamic State] and [its affiliate] the al-Nusra Front because they will have more relevance,” she said.
