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. He has earned-widespread praise for lifting restrictions on women driving while loosening rules around male-female interactions and also reining in the country’s religious police.

In an effort to wean the Kingdom off of its dependence on oil, MbS launched his Vision 2030 initiative – a plan that relies on foreign investment.

MBS Recognizes «Israelis» Right to Have Own Land

Local Editor

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman [MBS] has recognized “Israel”, stressing that “Israelis” are entitled to their own land.

MBS

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.

يا معالي الوزير.. كلّها انتخابات

يا معالي الوزير.. كلّها انتخابات

مارس 9, 2018

ناصر قنديل

– إذا عطفنا كلام وزير الداخلية نهاد المشنوق في حواره المتلفز ليل أمس، مع كلامه من منبر وزراء الداخلية العرب في الجزائر لا نستطيع إلا أن نشمّ روائح الانتخابات رغم الوجدانيات التي أراد الوزير ربط موقفه من قضية المسرحي زياد عيتاني بها، مستذكراً ما وصفه باتهامه بالعمالة وتعرّضه للتهديد وموقفه البطولي في مواجهة ذلك، مقابل نصائح تذكّر منها نصيحة للوزير السابق أشرف ريفي بإصدار بيان يهين نفسه به لطي الملف، والسؤال هنا هو بالاستذكار الذي أراده المشنوق نفياً لتهمة الاعتبارات الانتخابية في موقفه من ملف اتهام عيتاني، هل حشر اسم ريفي كان مجرد ذكر للوقائع، وهل استعراض موقف من الذاكرة لنيل التعاطف من جهة، واستعراض البطولة من جهة مقابلة، مجرد تذكّر لشاهد على العصر، أم هو جوهر الخطاب الانتخابي؟

– يا معالي الوزير، هل تتذكر أنّ هناك من جرى اتهامه بما لا يقلّ خطورة عما وصفته باتهامك بالعمالة، بعد اغتيال الرئيس رفيق الحريري، وبمؤتمر صحافي رسمي لرئيس الحكومة، وبدون أيّ دليل، واقتُحم منزله وتمّ النيل من سمعته والتحريض على قتله، وكانت الأجهزة الأمنية التي تتباهى بصدقيّتها، هي مَن فبرك ومَنْ أعدّ ملفات الاتهام والشهود الزور، وهي مجرد مسخرة وفعل انتقام مريض وتوظيف سياسي مشبوه، وأنّ هؤلاء لبنانيين مثلك لهم عائلاتهم وسمعتهم ووطنيتهم، ولك كشخص أن تخالفهم الرأي، لكن لا يحقّ كوزير أن تستذكر حادثة أقلّ شأناً مما تعرّضوا له بفضل إنجازات تيارك السياسي الذي وظف مسؤولية شخصياته السياسية على أجهزة أمنية ليوظّفها لحساباته الفئوية، والمبرّر الوحيد لذاكرتك الأحادية هو شخصنة الحدث طلباً للتعاطف، والحساب انتخابي، والنفي هنا يأتي في معرض التأكيد.

– في الجزائر كنت ممثلاً للبنان وحكومته، يا معالي الوزير، فهل تأتينا بمستند من البيان الوزاري للحكومة أو من قرارات مجلس الوزراء ما يخوّلك أن تقول، ما بدا بالنيابة عن مجلس الوزراء السعودي وليس عن مجلس الوزراء اللبناني، وفيه حرفياً أنّ «التمدّد الإيراني هو أحد أسباب الأزمة الأمنية والسياسية في العالم العربي، ولبنان العربي لم ولن يسمح بأن يكون شوكة في خاصرة العرب، ويجب ألا تيأسوا وألا تستسهلوا تسليم لبنان لإيران أو غيرها. فمن يسلّم لبنان يكون يسلّم نفسه، وهذا هو درس التاريخ الذي تعلّمناه معاً بكلفة عالية عالية عالية والمشروع الإيراني الذي لم ينجح في أن يكون عامل استقرار وإنماء في أيّ بقعة وصل إليها، فهذا الدور لم ينتج إلا الأزمات، لكنّ هذا لا يعفينا من السؤال: ماذا فعلنا في المواجهة مع إيران أو في الحوار معها؟». فهل هذا كلام وزير لبناني أم وزير سعودي، وما في هذا الكلام من تحريض ضمني على مَن يُفترض أنهم أدوات الدور الإيراني الذي تحذّر من مخاطره وتتعهّد بمقاومته، والمعني هنا شريك في الوطن وفي الحكومة، واللعب بنار الفتن يبدأ من هنا يا معالي الوزير، أم هذا هو شدّ العصب المذهبي عشية الذهاب للانتخابات؟ وهل هذا التزام بالنأي بالنفس الذي تدّعون أنه مطلبكم، وهل الحديث بنبرة سعودية له وظيفة غير الانتخابات وطلب الودّ، ولو بانتهاك حدود المسؤولية الدستورية؟

– معالي الوزير، بيننا وبين الانتخابات شهران، فإذا

كنت من اليوم مستعداً لارتكاب هذه التجاوزات ووزارتك هي المعنية بالعملية الانتخابية ونزاهتها، فأنت أكثر المطالبين بين زملائك بإثبات الحياد بالقدرة على الفصل بين صفتك الوزارية وكونك مرشحاً، وإ ثبات الحياد الوزاري في ملفات الانتخابات بمواقف الوزير وتصريحاته وسلوكه، وأول الثقة بالأمن، يا معالي الوزير، ليست الثقة بالأجهزة الأمنية التي لا تُعوزها الأهلية ولا الشجاعة ولا الكفاءة، ولا الثقة بالقضاء الذي لا تعوزه أهلية وكفاءة وشجاعة. أول الثقة بالأمن كما بالانتخابات هي الثقة بوجود وزير قبضاي شجاع يحمي الأجهزة من التدخلات السياسية، ويترفّع عن توظيف صفته الوزارية لحساب فريقه السياسي وحكماً لحساب مصالحه السياسية، والوقت لم يفُت بعد.

ملفّ لا يحتمل اللفلفة… مطلوب أجوبة

ملفّ لا يحتمل اللفلفة… مطلوب أجوبة

Image result for ‫زياد عيتاني المحكمة الجنائية الدولية‬‎

مارس 5, 2018

ناصر قنديل

العناوين التي تثيرها قضية زياد عيتاني تتخطاه كشخص وتتخطّى براءته أو إدانته ولا يحلها الكلام الهادئ الذي يريد سحبها من التداول بالإيحاء أنّ كلّ شيء تحت السيطرة ويسير وفقاً للأصول، فليست قضيتنا إنْ جرى تحويل ملف القضية من جهاز إلى جهاز بقرار وزاري أو بقرار قضائي.

زياد عيتاني يعترف بالعمالة والتخطيط لإغتيال نهاد المشنوق في لبنان

قضيتنا أنّ أمامنا عملياً روايتين لا يمكن الجمع بينهما رواية صدرت عن وزير الداخلية، تقول ببراءة عيتاني وباتهام مَن حقق معه ووجّه له الاتهام بالخلفيات الحاقدة والطائفية، وما أعقب كلام الوزير من مصادر أمنية منسوبة لشعبة المعلومات، اتهام للرئيس السابق لفرع مكافحة جرائم المعلوماتية بفبركة التهمة استناداً لخبرة قراصنة، ولأهداف شخصية بعضها ملتبس وبعضها وصفه الوزير بالحقد والطائفية. وفي المقابل أمامنا رواية وردت في بيان رسمي لجهاز أمن الدولة، تتمسّك بالاتهام وتسنده لاعترافات عيتاني الموثقة والمسجلة والواردة دون ضغوط، وبحضور مفوض الحكومة لدى المحكمة العسكرية. وأمام هاتين الروايتين لا ننحاز لإحداهما، وما يعنينا أبعد مما ينتج في القضية نفسها. فالقضية تطال أموراً أشدّ خطورة لا تحتمل اللفلفة وعلى الدولة كدولة بمؤسساتها أن تجيب المواطنين عن الأسئلة التي تطرحها.

السؤال الأول، إذا تبنينا رواية وزير الداخلية والتي تبدو مسنودة بتحقيقات شعبة المعلومات. فهذا يعني أمرين، الأول أنّ اتهامات خطيرة يمكن أن تُسند لمواطنين لبنانيين بغير وجه حق، باعتراف مرجعيات مسؤولة في الدولة، خصوصاً أنها ليست المرة الأولى التي يسقط فيها ضحايا لفبركة الاتهامات. فهل صار الوقت مناسباً لنقول إنّ كلّ الاتهامات التي تلقفها نصف اللبنانيين وصُفّق لها بحماسة في قضية اغتيال الرئيس رفيق الحريري كانت فبركات وأفلاماً هوليودية؟ فهل سيطال ضحايا هذه الفبركات اعتذار وتوضيحات تشبه الحملة التي قادها الوزير في قضية عيتاني، وما لم يحدث ذلك، يصير واجباً تصديق ما ورد في بيان أمن الدولة من تلميح للاعتبارات الانتخابية؟ فهل هناك «مواطن بسمن ومواطن بزيت» عند وزير الداخلية، وكلاهما ضحية فبركة جهاز أمني بتوجيه اتهامات تعادل التحريض على القتل، ولهم عائلات وأبناء أسيء لهم وسمعة جرى النيل منها وكرامة تمّ انتهاكها، وفي ظروف أشدّ قسوة، من تلك التي لحقت بعيتاني، الذي يستحق الإنصاف من مظلوميته إذا كانت براءته حقيقية، وإذا كانت مفاعيل عائلته الانتخابية تقف عند حدود الاحتفال ببراءته، هل يذكر الوزير يوم خرج الرئيس فؤاد السنيورة محتفلاً في مؤتمر صحافي، بحضور رئيس لجنة التحقيق الدولية ديتيليف ميليس يعلن توجيه الاتهام باغتيال الرئيس رفيق الحريري، ولاحقاً تبيّن أنّ الأسماء المعلنة، ضحايا تلفيق وفبركة وشهود زور؟

Image result for ‫الضباط الأربعة‬‎

الأمر الثاني أنّ الاتهام يستند لما عرف بداتا الاتصالات، ولا زالت وزارة الداخلية وشعبة المعلومات تصرّ على الحصول عليها بصفتها صمام أمان البلد والمستند الذي لا ترقى إليه شبهة في بناء اتهاماتها وملاحقتها للمشتبه بهم، لتطلّ علينا مصادر شعبة المعلومات في قضية عيتاني، وخلفها البراءة التي طلب الوزير من اللبنانيين الاعتذار من عيتاني على أساسها، وتقول إنّ الداتا مفبركة، وإنّ ضابطاً محترفاً بمعونة قرصان يملك القدرة على تركيب ملف متكامل لا يرقى إليه الشك بالفبركة، وأمام اللبنانيين قضية مفتوحة اسمها اتهام المحكمة الدولية لمجموعة لبنانيين ينتمون لحزب الله في قضية اغتيال الرئيس رفيق الحريري والمستند الوحيد لاتهامهم هو داتا مشابهة وضعتها شعبة المعلومات بتصرف هيئات التحقيق الدولية، ونال ضباطها تنويهاً على إنجازاتهم في هذا المجال، لا زلنا نذكر الشروح التي أطلّ بها علينا بعضهم عن الدائرة الصفراء والدائرة الرمادية والدائرة الحمراء، ليقولوا لنا إنّ هذه وقائع لا يمكن فبركتها ولا التدخل فيها ولا لأيّ قرصان تصنيعها، فبربكم أيّ الروايتين نصدّق؟

المسألة ببساطة هذه المرة أنّ الضابط المتهم بالفبركة محسوب على الخط السياسي ذاته الذي يحتاج براءة عيتاني انتخابياً، والفبركة تهمة وجهت لهذا الضابط الذي شغل مسؤوليات هامة في فروع الأمن، ووفقاً لرواية أمن الدولة إذا صدّقناها، البراءة مفتعلة ومفبركة، لاعتبارات انتخابية قال جهاز أمن الدولة إنها تخدم «إسرائيل» فقط. وإن صدقنا فهذا يعني تكراراً لحكاية مشابهة قبل سنوات، عنوانها شادي مولوي الذي قامت الدنيا ولم تقعد يوم تمّ توقيفه من قبل الأمن العام اللبناني، وبدأ معها الحديث الطائفي والمذهبي المقيت، وخرج رئيس الحكومة وفي ظروف انتخابية مشابهة يومها يحتفل بإخلاء سبيله، وبعد سنوات قليلة تبيّن أنّ مولوي مسؤول تنظيم داعش علناً في لبنان، فأخبرونا بمن نثق ومن نصدق، وأيّ الروايتين نعتمد، لكن تيقنوا، أنّ اتّباع أيّ من الروايتين له تبعات، واحدة تبدأ ببراءة عيتاني وردّ الاعتبار له وملاحقة المفبركين، لكنها تنتهي بسحب اتهامات المحكمة الدولية والاعتذار من ضحايا الفبركة وشهود الزور وفتح التحقيق لملاحقة كلّ مَنْ تورّط في لعبة الاتهام الملفق، والثانية تبدأ بوقف التلاعب بتحقيق أمن الدولة وردّ الاعتبار له وللضابط المتّهم بالفبركة وملاحقة مَن أراد إلصاق هذه التهمة به، وتنتهي باستقالة وزير حاول التلاعب بملف خطير لحسابات انتخابية، فاعتمدوا رواية واحدة واتبعوها حتى نهاية موجباتها، عليكم إن طلبتم احترام اللبنانيين لكم أن تختاروا.

In UAE, Palestine’s Capital Is ‘Ramallah’!

February 17, 2018

UAE Palestine capital

It seems that the United Arab Emirates has gone farther than Saudi Arabia in normalization with the Zionist entity, and even in adopting the occupation regime’s rhetoric.

Weeks after US President Donald Trump recognized Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the Zionist entity’s capital, and as Riyadh has been emerging as the spearhead of normalization moves, activists on social media shared a photo showing that Abu Dhabi recognizes Ramallah as the ‘capital of Palestine’.

Ali Mourad tweet1
Ali Mourad’s tweet

The photo, shared by Lebanese journalist Ali Mourad, shows a paper- reportedly a part of an Emirati book- that identifies the capitals and currencies of Arab countries. According to the photo, the capital of Palestine is ‘Ramallah’, while the currency there is the ‘Jordanian Dinar’.

“UAE teaches school children that Palestine’s capital is Ramallah! (A country) which falsifies its own history and geography in order to create glory and culture for itself, won’t slacken to falsify other countries’ history and geography in a bid to please Zionists,” Mourad, who is specialized with Gulf affairs tweeted on Saturday.

Al-Manar contacted Mourad, who confirmed that the photo is taken of a part of an Emirati book, clarifying that he obtained the image from “a Palestinian who lives in UAE.”

Meanwhile, the Lebanese researcher noted that the photo was also shared on social media by several Palestinian activists.

Taking a look on some Palestinian accounts on social media, especially on Facebook, it was clear that the same photo was shared by several Palestinians who were warning, in their posts, against dangers of such move on the Palestinian cause.
