Hezbollah raises war readiness to 100%: Report

Hezbollah raises war readiness to 100%: Report

Description:

A recent news report by the Lebanese news outlet Elnashra claims that Hezbollah has gone to full-level war alertness amid rising regional tensions between Israel and the Iran-led Axis of Resistance.

– Elnashra sources: Hezbollah warned against the Israeli (military) exercise, as the Israeli army is currently repeating the same steps that preceded the July 2006 war

– Elnashra sources: The Israeli (military) exercise hands the decision of war and peace to Kochavi, and this is what raises concerns for Hezbollah

Confidential sources revealed to Elnashra that “the Israeli (military) exercise that Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah talked about in his lastest speech is extremely dangerous”, explaining that “this exercise simulates a major war imposed on Israel on the southern and northern borders of Palestine, as well as the Sinai front and the (Israeli) interior. (This exercise also simulates a scenario) in which Israel is exposed to a huge amount of missiles being fired by the resistance forces of Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Palestine and the Gaza Strip, and especially (simulates a scenario in which) protest movements (also) potentially erupt in the West Bank and the interior”.

The sources pointed out that “conducting the exercise in this way aims to ‘interlock arms’”, which means that the (Israeli) field commander who is present on the ground and is in charge of defending the Galilee (region) for example, ought to be able to deal with (various) land-based weapons i.e. armor, artillery, air and naval command and intelligence, and has to be able to regulate the course of the (various elements of the) operation”.

Explaining that “about two and a half months ago, Israel conducted a small exercise that lasted for seven days, yet this one is the first (of its kind) ever since the establishment of the (Israeli) entity, and it must be noted that this exercise is dangerous in that it gives the power (to declare) peace and war to the Israeli Chief of Staff, General Aviv Kochavi. Furthermore, the enemy has started and continues the mobilization of its elite brigades – six brigades (in total) – about a week ago”, stressing that “Hezbollah warned against this exercise because in past wars, Israel worked on transporting soldiers and military personnel from the training fields directly to the battlefield, and this is what is happening now at the southern front of Lebanon and the northern part of Palestine”.

The sources also pointed out that “Hezbollah has raised combat readiness in the South (of Lebanon), and in the various areas, formations and military classifications of Quneitra. (Hezbollah) has also kept on constant duty a portion of its members, called up a number of its forces, and raised its combat readiness from tonight to 100%, something that has not happened since the July 2006 war”.

’Israel’ Worried About Possible Iranian-Saudi Rapprochement

’Israel’ Worried About Possible Iranian-Saudi Rapprochement

By Staff

Zionist milieus voiced concerns regarding a possible rapprochement between Saudi Arabia on the one side and Iran and Syria on the other side; something that will make Tel Aviv’s hopes to form an axis with some Arabs against the Axis of Resistance go with the wind.

The increasing fears from a possible Saudi-Iranian and Saudi-Syrian approachment among the Zionists were reflected in remarks by ‘Israeli’ analysts and media outlets.

The diplomatic move between Riyadh-Tehran and Riyadh-Damascus was seen as a bothering indicator to Tel Aviv and a beginning to abort the Zionist bet on an ‘Israeli’-Gulf alliance against Iran.

In this regard, Zionist political analyst Moav Vardi asked: “Aren’t these bad news for ‘Israel’? ‘Israel’ and the United States formed an alliance with the Gulf countries and Saudi Arabia in a united front against Iran. This is starting to collapse and the Saudis started recognizing that [US President Joe] Biden won’t be offensive [towards Iran].”

For his part, ‘Israeli’ Kan Arabic Affairs Correspondent Roi Kais said “I believe that such news are worrying for ‘Israel’. In case it tended to carry out any operation against Iran, it should know that it cannot ultimately rely on these countries that are moving between different axes. This doesn’t only apply to Saudi Arabia but also to other Gulf countries.”

The Zionist views to this diplomatic move come in the course of revising the regional scene amid the policy of confronting the Axis of Resistance and the transformations taking place within the US policy in handling regional and international issues.

Vardi added that “Saudi Arabia has been Iran and Syria’s bitterest enemy over the course of war in Syria, and we are now witnessing new winds between Tehran and Riyadh, and perhaps Damascus, and this is a major development in the region.”

Meanwhile, Kais said “There is no doubt that Trump’s loss in the US elections dealt a strong blow to Mohammad Bin Salman, while Biden is returning to the nuclear deal. I believe that bin Salman has now to change his direction and start getting used to the new reality, adding that he failed to end the Yemen war as he didn’t make any achievements on that front.”

The ‘Israeli’ enemy’s milieu reflected, likewise, complete desperation towards the Gulf-Syrian ties that are moving forward to normal after the gulf-backed efforts to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad have proved futile.

Sayyed Nasrallah Warns “Israel” against Any Mistake, Balance In Favor of Resistance Axis 

Zeinab Essa

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on the last Friday of the Holy Ramadan month a speech marking Al-Quds international Day.

At the beginning of his televised speech, Sayyed Nasrallah assured that he is neither infected with Covid-19 nor suffering any of its symptoms. “I’m just suffering from bronchitis which happens to me regularly due to seasons’ change,” His Eminence clarified.

Regarding the marked event, he stressed that “The Palestinian people grants the Resistance its legitimacy, given that they did neither abandon their state nor Al-Quds.”

“What we are witnessing today in the Palestinian squares and in Sheikh al-Jarrah Neighborhood is a good proof to this,” the Resistance leader added, noting that “The most important and dangerous development that must be affirmed is Gaza’s participation on the front line as this opens great horizons to the resistance.”

He further underscored that “the ‘Israeli” entity is fully aware that the involvement of Gaza in the conflict resembles a very serious threat.”

In parallel, Sayyed Nasrallah urged the leaders of Palestinian resistance to “continue with this approach as it will change the rules of engagement [with the ‘Israeli’ enemy].”

Hailing the Palestinians’ steadfastness, he stated: “We are sure that the Palestinian people are suitable to preserve Al-Quds, its land, and rights.”

“The ‘Israelis’ thought that economic pressure and the atmosphere of desperation will affect the Palestinians, but they were shocked,” His Eminence went on to say.

Moving to the Iranian Front, Hezbollah Secretary General underlined that “All ‘Israeli’ bets regarding Iran have failed.”

“The Axis of Resistance’s solidness is very important to the region and it will reflect majorly on the Palestinian Cause and the struggle with the ‘Israeli’ enemy,” he added, noting that “Iran has greatly crossed the dangerous phase and the enemy’s bets to take Iran to war have ended. The bets of some regional countries on this have also ended.”

On the same level, Sayyed Nasrallah viewed that “Iran today is the strongest country within the Axis of Resistance and all American and ‘Israeli’ options to force Iran to give up its nuclear program have ended.”

His Eminence also recalled that “The biggest Iranian response to the Natanz attack was increasing the Uranium enrichment, which terrified ‘Israel’.”

According to the Resistance Leader, “Based on our experience with Iran in the past 40 years, Iran does not bargain at the expense of its allies; it does not negotiate on their behalf and it does not abandon them.”

Expressing Hezbollah’s support to every regional, international, or Arab dialogue, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that “Dialogue strengthens the Axis of Resistance and weakens the enemy. We’re assured towards Iran’s [behavior].”

In addition, Sayyed Nasrallah commented on the talk about Saudi-Iranian talks by saying: “Many Arab states are in contacts with Syria, and Saudi Arabia can’t impose its conditions on Syria regarding its relations with Iran while it is itself negotiating Iran.”

“Those who should be concerned with the Iranian-Saudi talks are the Riyadh allies, not the allies of Iran,” His Eminence said.

Meanwhile, he mentioned that “Syria is on the path of recovery and the most dangerous challenge it’s facing is that of economy.”

“This challenge isn’t limited to Syria alone, but to several peoples in the region,” he stated, praising the fact that “The people of the region are determined to withstand and confront.”

In addition, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated that “Yemen is a qualitative accumulation to the Axis of Resistance under its young and honest leadership.”

“There is a breakdown of some axes and alliances that appeared in face of the Resistance Axis,” His Eminence viewed, pointing out that “The moral balance is in favor of the Resistance’s Axis.”

Commenting on the “Israeli” scene, he explained that “The ‘Israelis’ are concerned today due to the growing capabilities of the Axis of Resistance.”

“The ‘Israeli’ entity is in trouble and its wall is cracking; there is a leadership crisis and this is a sign of collapse and weakness,” Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say, noting that “All signs of weakness and decline began to appear clearly in the enemy’s entity, while we are witnessing the renewed activity of the Palestinian people.”

In this context, Hezbollah Secretary General predicted that “The course in the enemy’s entity is heading to a civil war and there is serious concern in the enemy’s society over this reality.”

He also recalled that “The Syrian defense missile that hit Dimona worried the ‘Israelis’,” noting that “The enemy’s army is not confident of its ability to confront fire from several fronts should war erupt.”

“The ‘Israelis’ are worried due to the operations taking place in the West Bank and due to Gaza’s involvement in the developments taking place in Al-Quds.,” Sayyed Nasrallah unveiled, pointing out that “The ‘Israeli’ ground forces are worried and weak and this is why they are holding several military drills.”

On this level, Sayyed Nasrallah sent the apartheid entity a sounding warning: “Hezbollah won’t tolerate any ‘Israeli’ mistake during the major ‘Israeli’ drill that begins Sunday. We will take calm and responsible precautions.”

“The enemy must know that we will be cautious, alert and prepared,” His Eminence added, warning that “Any wrong move towards Lebanon during the drill will be an adventure by the enemy. The enemy will be mistaken should it think that we will be afraid to confront any attempt to alter the rules of engagement or any security or military action.”

He also was clear enough to tell the “Israelis”: “We will not be lenient and we will not tolerate any mistake, violation or hostile move by the enemy across the entire Lebanese territory.”

Regarding the issue of maritime border demarcation, Sayyed Nasrallah declared that “We [Hezbollah] don’t interfere in the issue of maritime borders and this is left to the Lebanese state.”

He reminded that after 2000 liberation, “Hezbollah interfered in the issue of Shebaa Farms and Kafrshouba Hills after the Lebanese state confirmed that they are Lebanese.”

Commenting on those who interpret Hezbollah’s silence over the issue as “embarrassment towards the allies,” His Eminence said: “This is not true… We, as a resistance, have not and will not interfere in the issue of the border demarcation. Let the State shoulder its historic responsibility as to the demarcation of the border and the preservation of the Lebanese people’s rights and let it consider that it is relying on real strength.”

“We have found that it is in Lebanon’s interest and in the certain interest of the resistance that we stay away from this issue,” Hezbollah’s leader added, noting that “Lebanon is not weak at all” and that “the United States and ‘Israel’ can’t impose on the Lebanese what they want.”

Stressing that the Axis of Resistance has been growing stronger while the Zionist entity is witnessing many rifts, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah warned the Israeli enemy against committing any folly during a maneuver  in the coming days.

Delivering a speech via Al-Manar on the occasion of International Al-Quds Day, Sayyed Nasrallah saluted Palestinian people for their steadfastness in face of continuous Israeli attacks.

Sayyed Nasrallah explored points of strength within the Axis of Resistance, noting that Iran has overcome the threat of war as all US and Israeli options against the Islamic Republic have failed.

His eminence also said that the war in Syria has been over, noting that several Arab states are contacting Damascus.

“We have overcome the stage where our front is targeted, and this is a source of concern to the Israeli enemy.

On the other hand, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the Zionist entity has been witnessing several rifts including the internal political crisis, the revive of Resistance spirit among Palestinian people and the emergence of Gaza to be a part of the equation of Resistance and West Bank Resistance against the Israeli enemy.

On the issue of border demarcation, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated Hezbollah’s stance.

“The party who decides in this regard is the Lebanese state. The government here bears historical responsibility to defend our country’s rights.”

COVID-19 Infection?

Sayyed Nasrallah started his speech by reassuring his supporters that he is not a COVID-19 patient, noting that the cough he had was due to a tracheal disease.

His eminence was responding to speculations circulated after he repeatedly coughed during a religious sermon earlier on Wednesday.

International Al-Quds Day

Talking about the occasion, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Al-Quds Day is an ideological, religious, humanitarian and moral issue.

“It’s about the absolute right of the Palestinian people that will never change by place or time.”

His eminence saluted Palestinian people for sticking to their right in Al-Quds, noting that such steadfastness gives legitimacy to the Axis of Resistance as well as to all forms of support this front offer to the Palestinian people.

“Palestinians did not abandon their land. Despite all these years they are still sticking to their rights. What we have been seeing in the latest weeks proves this. Unarmed Palestinians in Damascus Gate and in Al-Quds are heroically confronting armed Israeli forces.”

In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah hailed the Palestinian Resistance in Gaza for getting into the scene of the confrontation in Al-Quds, describing this development as important and in favor of Palestinians in Al-Quds.

“The Israeli enemy had been previously keen to separate between Gaza and Al-Quds. Hereby, I call upon Palestinian factions in Gaza to go ahead with this decision which falls in favor of Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

Powerful Iran

Hezbollah S.G. described Iran as the most powerful state in the Axis of Resistance, despite all US and Israeli attempts to topple its establishment.

“All US and Israeli schemes against the Islamic Republic were foiled and Iran has overcome the threat of war. Ira has already retaliated to Israeli attacks on Natanz nuclear facility by enriching uranium up to 60 %, and this what scares the Zionist entity a lot.”

Hitting back at those who say that Iran allies must be concerned in case a rapprochement takes place with Saudi Arabia, Sayyed Nasrallah said the Islamci Republic and throughout 4 years did not abandon its allies and has been keen to preserve the national interests of their countries.

“Those who must be concerned are US allies,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Syria, Iraq and Yemen

Sayyed Nasrallah touched upon the situation in Syria, Iraq and Yemen as he stressed that the Axis of Resistance emerged victorious and more powerful.

“The war in Syria is over and several Arab states are reportedly having contacts with Damascus now. In Iraq, attempts to revive ISIL have failed so far.”

“Elsewhere in Yemen, Yemeni people are more steadfast and victorious in the seventh year of the Saudi aggression. The game-changing capabilities of Yemeni army which have been advancing make the Axis of Resistance more powerful.”

‘Israel’ Weakened

Sayyed Nasrallah then talked about rifts within the Zionist entity, noting that one of the prominent aspects of this rift is the internal political crisis.

“There is a real leadership crisis in the Zionist entity, and such crises indicate the extent of weakness which this regime has reached. Some Israeli analysts say that a civil war in the Zionist entity is possible.”

His eminence also cited when a Syrian anti-aircraft missile hit an area near Dimona nuclear site in the Zionist entity earlier last month.

“This incident proved failure of the Israeli defense systems. In case of a war in the region, would the Israeli defense systems be capable to intercept thousands of rockets?”

Sayyed Nasrallah noted, meanwhile, that the stampede in Mount Meron showed how the Israeli home front is not ready to deal with such situations in case of a real war.

“Zionists are worried about the revival of operations in West Bank and the emergence of Gaza to be part of the equation of confrontations in Al-Quds.”

His eminence added that failure of Israeli strategies on Iran is also one of the rifts within the Zionist entity.

Sayyed Nasrallah noted that the Israeli forces have been lacking morale, and this problem is prompting the Zionist army to intensify drills.

Israeli Drill

Sayyed Nasrallah warned the Israeli enemy against committing any folly during a drill that will start on Sunday.

“In light of this situation we are on high alert and we will closely monitor the enemy movements.”

“Any folly or any attempt to change the rule of engagement is an adventure that we won’t tolerate at all.”

In the end of his speech, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the responsibility is to defend Al-Quds with all means, calling for more cooperation and patience among powers in the Axis of Resistance.

Sayyed Nasrallah: The Axis of Resistance Shapes Region’s Future, ‘Israelis’ To be Expelled By Force

By Staff

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered a speech in an event held marking the International al-Quds Day.

The event, dubbed “The United Platform”, was held virtually on Wednesday afternoon, in which the Islamic Resistance leader emphasized that the weeks-old al-Quds uprising has displayed the bravery of the al-Quds youths in the field and against the brutal Zionist machine.

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed to that the West Bank interaction and the calculated military intervention from the Gaza side is a very important development.

His Eminence further reiterated the resistance’s commitment, belief and adherence to its responsibilities towards the Palestinian cause, and called for more presence and suitable expression of hones and brave stances towards al-Quds and Palestine.

Additionally, Sayyed Nasrallah labelled the recent events as ones that stress the Palestinian people’s adherence to their rights and not abandoning any of them, adding that the latest heroic operation in the West Bank is a form of this insistence.

“The young Palestinian generations are still carrying their blood and souls, and are ready to sacrifice in the path of the coming victory.”

The Hezbollah leader, meanwhile, noted that the solidness of the Axis of Resistance, and its ability to overcome the most dangerous phase that targeted its presence in the region makes it necessary to raise responsibilities towards the Ummah’s cause.

“The Axis of Resistance is serious, honest, and true, unlike all previous words of Arab regimes,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, emphasizing that it is integrated, in solidarity, cooperation and coordination “in which we can feel that al-Quds is nearer.”

His Eminence also noted that “while we can witness the solidness of the axis of resistance despite the wars, blockade, and provocation, we also witness the collapse of other axes that had been leading wars against resistance in the region.”

In the same context, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed to the deep crises within the Zionist entity that started to surface strongly, while many Zionist analysts voice concerns regarding the survival of the enemy’s entity amid all such crises.

“Normalization should raise the voice of the Ummah’s free resistance, as it increases its responsibility to confront,” His Eminence said, noting that the normalizing countries’ have never been part of the battle so that their exit would never affect the track of this battle.

Additionally, Sayyed Nasrallah said that today’s responsibility is to present all kinds of support to the Palestinian resistance, and to strengthen the Axis of Resistance as it is this axis that shapes the future of the region.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized that the Zionists themselves know very well that this entity has no future, and it has a very short time to remain, and this is why they are wasting their efforts and blood in vain.

“The reasonable words to address all occupiers and invaders is that they have to leave the land they have occupied, otherwise they will be returned by force or by any other mean to the places they came from.”

At the end of his remarks, Sayyed Nasrallah underscored that as long as the Palestinian people are sticking to their rights and struggle, none of the defeatists will be able to abort the Palestinian cause because the resistance of this people is a proof to every Arab and Muslim, and every free human in the world [that they can achieve their goals].

بين الديبلوماسيّة والميدان من طهران حتى صنعاء…

 محمد صادق الحسيني

يقول الفيلسوف والمفكر العسكري الألماني، الجنرال كارل فون كلاوسيڤيتس: «إنّ الحرب هي استمرار للسياسة بوسائل أخرى».

ويضيف: «أن الحرب هي استخدام للقوة لإجبار العدو على الخضوع لإرادتنا».

إنّ هذا يعني أنه عندما يفشل السياسيون في تسوية اي ملف او قضية يلجأ اصحاب القضية الى الحرب، اي الى الميدان لفرض الحلول المناسبة التي عجزت عنها السياسة وبالتالي فرض موازين للقوى ميدانياً تجبر الخصم للرضوخ لمطالب السياسيين.

بمعنى آخر وفي تطبيق لهذه المقولة على ما يجري اليوم من حروب في منطقتنا نستطيع القول بانّ فشل السياسة والسياسيين في جبهة الخصم من فرض إرادتهم علينا دفعهم الى إعلان الحرب علينا.

في المقابل لم يكن أمامنا ونحن الذين تعرّضنا لحروب العدو المفروضة علينا سوى أن نذهب الى قتال العدو في الميدان حتى نعدّل في ميزان القوى بيننا وبينه لنجبره على الخضوع لإرادتنا.

المتتبّع لخط سير تطورات بلداننا في غرب آسيا يستطيع القول إنه وعلى مدى ٤ عقود مضت كحد أدنى قمنا بتطبيق هذه القاعدة الذهبية للمفكر الاشهر في علم الحرب على عديد من الساحات، وفي مقدمها إيران، وقد نجحنا فيها.

وقد حصل ذلك بالفعل بالإجمال والتلخيص على مراحل ثلاث:

 في الأولى وهي الأشهر كانت العملية في مواجهة الحرب الكونية التي اعلنت ضد إيران فور نجاح ثورتها الإسلامية بقيادة الامام روح الله الموسوي الخميني.

الثانية الاخطر في مواجهة الحرب الكونية الثانية ضد سورية الاسد العربية بعدما رفضت الخضوع لشروط الخريف العربي المدمّر.

الثالثة الأقرب والتي لا تزال جارية على قدم وساق ضد يمن أنصار الله الحرة المستقلة التي رفضت التبعية والتقسيم وسحق الهوية بهدف تسوية الطريق لتسليم ما تبقى من مقدرات عربية للعدو الصهيوني والسيد الأميركي.

وهكذا تبلورت عملياً أسطورة المقاومة التي يعيّرنا البعض بها اليوم، او يلصق بنا شتى التهم بسببها او يرمينا باللمز والهمز «الأكاديمي» مرة والنيوليبرالي مرة أخرى بوصفنا مرة بالمتزمتين وأخرى بالمتشدّدين وثالثة بالمتطرفين ورابعة بأننا من أتباع المهدي الذي يريد اجتياح العالم العربي!

وإنما نعيد استذكار هذا في هذه اللحظات المصيرية، لكوننا أمام امتحان واختبار داخلي وخارجي في كل أقطارنا العربية والاسلامية اليوم، وبشكل خاص في دول محور المقاومة، مطلوب فيها أن نجتاز بنجاح «فتنة» استقطابين كاذبين… الاستقطاب الكاذب الاول بين ميل شعوبنا للسلام والعيش بأمان وبين عشقهم لإنجازات أبطالهم التاريخيين في الميادين أي بين السلام ايّ الحلّ السياسي كما يقولون وبين الحسم في الميدان.

وحتى نضع النقاط على الحروف لا بدّ من تذكير أصحاب الفتنة الجدد، بأنهم هم من أشعلوا الحروب ضدنا ودفعوا بنا الى دخول ميادين القتال للدفاع عن ديننا وأوطاننا واستقلالنا وحرياتنا، ولم نكن نحن من أشعل الحروب.

والاستقطاب الثاني بين العروبة والإسلام.

وإذا نسي البعض فنحن لن ننسى ونذكّر لمن ألقى السمع وهو شهيد بأن حلف اليسار القديم مع النيوليبراليين الجدد الذين يتهموننا اليوم بأننا إسلاميون متطرفون او خمينيون او متحالفون مع إيران الخامنئي، انما نهدّد الأمن القومي العربي بسلوكنا هذا، هم أنفسهم من كانوا قد وقفوا طوال النصف الثاني من القرن الماضي ضد الزعيم الراحل جمال عبد الناصر وقاتلوه ونعتوا «القومية العربية» التي آمن بها ودافع عنها، بالجاهليّة رافعين بوجهها راية الاسلام كذباً وزوراً…

 ولما برز الإمام الخميني مجدّداً النهضة الإسلامية ورافعاً راية فلسطين والدفاع عن العروبة التي رموها هم على قارعة الطريق، تذكروا فجأة انهم عرب وان القادم الجديد بثورته وجمهوريته الحرة والمستقلة وحلفائها انما يشكلون تهديداً للأمن القومي العربي لا بد من مواجهته ومنع تمدده…!

إن أي مؤرخ منصف لا بد أنه مع قراءته الموضوعية لما حصل طوال العقود الأربعة الماضية سيكتشف ان طلاب الحروب ومروّجيها من بين أبناء جلدتنا والمدعومين والمندسين بجحافل الغرب لم يعملوا ذلك الا لإدراكهم خطر مقولة المقاومة التي رفعت بوجه سياساتهم الظالمة ومطامعهم الخطيرة، التي تبلورت مرة ناصرية عربية وأخرى خمينية إسلامية.

انّ اسطورة المقاومة التي صدّت موجاتهم الثلاث في الهضبة الإيرانية الإسلامية، ومن ثم على بوابات الشام العربية الفلسطينية واليوم على تخوم الهضبة اليمنية الحرة والمستقلة وأمّ العرب وأصلهم، انما مذهبها ودينها وقوميتها وانتماؤها هو لله الواحد القهار الذي صنف البشر على قاعدة:

«الناس صنفان إما اخ لك في الدين أو نظير لك في الخلق» وإنها هي هي مَن كانت تقف عائقاً وسداً منيعاً امام الاستعمار والصهيونية والرجعية العربية.

وهذه الأسطورة هي من افرزت القادة العظام الحاج قاسم سليماني وأبو مهدي المهندس وعصام زهر الدين وصالح الصماد والحاج عماد مغنية، وأمثالهم المئات والآلاف من أمة أشرف الناس، الذين بفضلهم إنما يحقق السياسيون اليوم إنجازاتهم، وبمدادهم يخط الكتاب رواياتهم، وبدمائهم يحيا سائر من بقي على قيد الحياة من بقية السيف ناجياً من وحشية جيوش إرهاب العدو الذي ما انفكّ يوظف راية الإسلام مرة وراية العروبة مرة اخرى، لخداع الرأي العام والرأي العام منه براء.

وها هم آخرون جدد مرجفون بدأوا يضافون الى اولئك أخذوا برداء الفتنة وراحوا يروّجون لمقولة: «إنّ الميدان عسكرة لقضايا الامة لا لزوم له وانه كان بالإمكان تفاديه لو أننا أحسنّا فن الحوار مع العدو وعاملناه بالتي هي أحسن بدلاً من الدخول في مستنقعات الحروب.

لقد نسي هؤلاء او تناسوا او يتغافلون لغاية في نفس يعقوب بان من يدعوننا اليوم للحوار والجلوس الى طاولة المفاوضات هم من ظلوا حتى الأمس القريب يهددوننا بنقل الحرب الى داخل مدننا وشوارعنا وازقتنا وبيوتنا، بل إنهم اقسموا بأنهم لن يوقفوا الحرب علينا الا فاتحين مصلين في جوامعنا الكبرى.

 وأنهم ما نزلوا اليوم عند اجندة الحوار الا بعدما ذاقوا مرارة الميدان الباليستية الدقيقة والشاردة.

هذا إن كانوا فعلاً يريدونه حواراً وليس التفافاً وخدعةً او مراوغةً، واستراحة محارب تمهيداً لاستمرار الحرب بوسائل أخرى (اقلب نظرية المفكر الألماني) الذي بدأنا المقالة معه أيّ أن يأخذوا منا في السياسة ما لم يتمكنوا من أخذه منا في الميدان…!

 والحرب خدعة، فإياكم والخدع وأمهات الفتن الكبرى التي تتنقل اليوم من ميدان لميدان ومن ساحة لساحة لمنعنا من القيام بالفصل الأخير من هجومنا الاستراتيجي نحو أم المعارك أي تحرير فلسطين وبيت المقدس.

وما ذلك على الله بعزيز.

بعدنا طيبين قولوا الله…

لم تكن المنشٱت الإسرائيلية الثابتة بيوم من الأيام ومنذ عشرات السنين، خارج نطاق إحداثيات صواريخ تحالف تيار المقاومة إن كان في إيران او  سورية او جنوب لبنان، وتلك الأهداف الثابتة، لا تعد ولا تحصى، وكل هدف قد يكون بمثابة قنبلة نووية. 

والسؤال: لماذا لم يتم استهداف كل تلك المنشٱت من قبل سورية أو إيران ، رغم كل ما تعرضت له سورية من تدمير بشع !!!  ورغم كل الاعتداءت الإسرائيلية التي باتت شبه أسبوعية على القوات السورية والإيرانيةالمتواجدة في سورية !! ؟؟

هذا السؤال يقود بالمنطق إلى نتيجة مفادها إن تيار المقاومة ( سورية وإيران) لا يضعون الحرب العسكرية ضمن خططهم للتعامل مع العد الإسرائيلي ،لا للدفاع عن النفس ولا للهجوم وتحرير الأراضي المحتلة..على الأقل في المدى المنظور. 

تيار المقاومة يسعى إلى خلق توازن الرعب، وخلق حالة ردع للعدو الإسرائيلي… بمعنى ردع إسرائيل من الاعتداء علينا ، ومن يدقق بالبرنامج  السياسي للمقاومة يرى أن شعارات المقاومة تكتفي بشعارين ( الصمود ، والتصدي ) ولم ترفع بيوم من الأيام شعار الهجوم على إسرائيل وشن حرب تحريرية.  بينما نرى إسرائيل تقف خلف كل ما حدث من حرب على سورية و تحاول جر المنطقة ( كل المنطقة) إلى حرب، وتحرض أمريكا وأوروبا وتشكل تحالفات مع دول عربية وعلى رأسهم دول الخليج لمحاولة ضرب إيران ونشوب حرب عسكرية في المنطقة. 

من هنا علينا أن ندرك أن الصاروخ الذي سقط على بعد ثلاث كيلو مترات عن مفاعل ديمونا الإسرائيلي، بالتأكيد لم يخطيء هدفه، ولم يكن هدفه لا مفاعل ديمونا ، ولا فتح حرب عسكرية مع  إسرائيل ، بل نستطيع أن نفهم أن الصاروخ، اطلق من الدفاعات الجوية لصد هجوم من قبل الطيران الإسرائيلي، وبغض النظر إن كان أطلق خلف الطائرات الإسرائيلية، أم أطلق بشكل مباشر، فالرسالة واحدة، والهدف منه، تذكير المجتمع الاستيطاني الإسرائيلي أننا نستطيع الوصول إلى أخطر المواقع الإسرائيلية، لخلق حالة رعب وتذمر وضغط من قبل الجمهور على حكومة بنيامين نتنياهو واليمين المتطرف في كيان إسرائيل الغاصب، ليرضخ لشروط السلام، كما أنها أيضا رسالة إلى صناع القرار في أمريكا.

وهذه ليست إلا رسالة سورية  تتوافق مع العديد من الرسائل الروسية الإقتصادية والسياسية الموجهة من موسكو إلى إسرائيل وامريكا ، بأن خيوط اللعبة وادارتها مازالت بيد  روسيا، وعليكم أن تعودوا للتموضع الذي كان سائد مجيء بايدن للبيت الأبيض. هذه الرسالة الصاروخية في هذه المرحلة لن تكون الوحيدة والأخيرة بل تترافق مع رسائل اقتصادية بأن روسية قادرة على ٱفشال  الحظر الاقتصادي على سورية، وقادرة على إبطال مفعول قانون قيصر إن لم تفعله ، أيضا تستطيع فتح النار على الشمال السوري وإحراق ما تبقى من إرهابيين وتحريرها، والرسالة الأهم في هذه المرحلة هي دعم روسيا للاستحقاق الانتخابي للانتخابات الرئاسية في سورية، والرسالة واضحة المعالم حيث تقول (أن الرئيس بشار الأسد قائد للدولةوالجيش والشعب في المرحلة القادمة) . وأتوقع قريبا جدا سنجد التغيير في لهجة بايدن اتجاه كل من روسيا وإيران وسورية، وسنرى أيضا في إسرائيل تقهقر لشعبية اليمين المتطرف  وانتقادات حادة لجهة بنيامين نتنياهو، أو تغيير في لهجة الحكومة الإسرائيلية الحالية ، تحت ضغط الشارع الإسرائيلي ، أو التوجه نحو حكومة إسرائيلية تتموضع كما تريد روسيا والقبول  بإعادة هضبة الجولان، وما تبقى من مزارع شبعا، والقبول بعملية سلام بين سورية وإسرائيل، وإعادة الاتفاق  النووي الأمريكي الإيراني من طرف أمريكا، فكل هذه الملفات في سلة واحدة وكلها مرسلة من جهة واحدة متمثلة بروسيا وإيران وسورية، وبديل السلام ( الذي أعتقد كان متفق عليه بين روسيا من جهة وامريكا من جهة ثانية قبل مجيء بايدن) سيكون حرب لا يستطيع أحد إيقاف نارها التي لن تشعل إسرائيل فقط  …. ولن  تشعل الدول العربية وحدها، بل ستشتعل منطقة الشرق الأوسط برمتها، وستنشب الحرائق في تركيا وفي  إيران و العراق والأردن ودول الخليج وسورية ولبنان، ولو كانت القيادة السورية أشعلت الفتيل وأطلقت رشقة صواريخ على إسرائيل عام ٢٠١١، واستهدفت أي موقع حيوي مثل مفاعل ديمونا.. من باب.. ( على وعلى أعدائي) لتغيرت الكثير من نتائج حرب العشر سنوات على سورية ، واذكر منذ عام ٢٠١١ ونحن نكتب ونطالب بنقل المعركة إلى إسرائيل، لكن القيادة السورية لم تتخذ هذا القرار في حينها، ولا أعتقد سيتخذ هذا القرار اليوم، ولا غدا، فالمعركة مع إسرائيل في حقيقتها لم تعد معركة حربية عسكرية محسوبة النتائج ، بل هي معركة سياسية ان كان مع إيران أو مع سورية، 

وهذه المعركة السياسية تديرها روسيا بالتوافق مع  القيادة في دمشق، والقيادة في طهران، والوزن الدولي  للحليف الروسي، وحنكة ( بوتن ) ومصداقيته مع قيادات  المقاومة   تعطي روسيا الحق في الموافقه والتنسيق على أي تحرك عسكري اليوم، ومن الضرورة والمصلحة للمقاومة أن يتم التنسيق واخذ موافقة الحليف الروسي بالدرجة الأولى . 

 ولن يكون الهدف منه انتقام عسكري، وضربة بضربة ولا الهدف منه أذية الكيان الصهيوني الغاشم، بل الهدف منه تطويق إسرائيل بالنار لإجبار  الشعب الإسرائيلي وإنذاره من خطورة ما يسعى إليه  اليمين المتطرف المتمثل بنتنياهو، ، والتوجه للحل السياسي والتخلي  عن الغطرسة والاعتداءات العسكرية التي تمارسها على سورية وعلى إيران. إذا نحن حقيقة أمام  اعتداءت إسرائيلية شبه أسبوعية على سورية، وعلى القوات الإيرانية في سورية،ومحاولة إشعال النار في المنطقة من قبل إسرائيل، ورغم كل الاعتداءات الوقحة، والتي باتت غير مقبولة لم نرى رد واحد متمثل بصاروخ يقتل إسرائيلي واحد، إذا نحن أمام محاولات إسرائيلية للحل العسكري، مقابل محور المقاومة ( إيران وسورية) الذي يحاول عدم الانجرار إلى معارك حربية، رغم كل الاستفزازات  العسكرية الإسرائيلية. وصاروخ اليوم كان صاروخ أصاب هدفه ، فالهدف لم يكن مفاعل ديمونا، بل الهدف منه ( قرب) مفاعل ديمونا… وهي رسالة واضحة…….. أننا نستطيع قصف مفاعل ديمونة، ولن تحمي سماء إسرائيل لا القبة الحديدية، ولا أمريكا قادرة عن صد   صواريخ منتشرة في جنوب لبنان وفي سورية وفي إيران، فالرسالة الروسية باختصار أتت بعد مواقف بايدن من بوتن، وبعد الحركشات العسكرية في أوكرانيا، وبعد الضربات الإسرائيلية على سورية، وهذه الرسالة أرسلت من سورية وبيد الجيش العربي السوري، وستتلاحق الرسائل إلى أن يتم تموضوع إسرائيل، وبايدن كما يرسم لها بوتن.عملية السلام بين سورية وإسرائيل لن يستطيع أحد إعاقتها، لا إيران ولا سورية ولا إسرائيل ولا حتى أمريكا، لأن هذه التسوية ستعيد الجولان وما تبقى من مزارع شبعا لسورية، وسيعاد الاتفاق النووي لإيران، وتعيد التوازن الدولي لأمريكا في منطقة الشرق الأوسط، وهي فقط عائق لليمين الإسرائيلي المتطرف، من هنا، الرسالة موجهة للشعب الإسرائيلي تحديدا، وبيد الجيش العربي السوري، وترافقت مع الاستحقاق الانتخابي للرئيس بشار الأسد، وهي رسالة روسية إيرانية سورية ذات رأس متفجر .

A message .. with an explosive missile head

For decades, Israeli fixed-line missiles have never been outside the coordinates of the Resistance Movement Alliance missiles, whether in Iran, Syria or southern Lebanon, and those fixed targets are innumerable, and every target could be a nuclear bomb.

The question is: Why were not all these facilities targeted by Syria or Iran, despite all the horrible destruction that Syria has suffered,  despite all the Israeli attacks, which became almost weekly on the Syrian and Iranian forces present in Syria??

This question leads logically to the conclusion that the axis of resistance (Syria and Iran) does not include the military war in their plans to deal with the Israeli count, neither for self-defense nor for the attack and liberation of the occupied lands, at least in the foreseeable future. At least in the foreseeable future.

The axis of resistance seeks to create a balance of deterrent. In other words, deterring Israel from attacking us, the slogans of resistance axis are limited to (steadfastness and confrontation) and have never been attacking Israel and waging a war of liberation.  While we see Israel standing behind all that happened in the war against Syria is inciting America and Europe, forming alliances with Arab Gulf states, to drag the region (all region) into war.

This missile is nothing but a Syrian message that Israel attacks have become unacceptable, a message consistent with many of the Russian economic and political messages addressed from Moscow to Israel and America, that the threads of the game and its management are still in the hands of Russia, and you have to return to the positioning that prevailed when Biden came to the White House. The missile message at this stage will not be the only and last, but it is accompanied by economic messages that Russia is able to thwart the economic embargo on Syria, and is able to nullify the Caesar Act if it does not do so. It can also open fire on northern Syria and burn the remaining terrorists and liberate it, and the message reflect clear Russia’s support for the electoral process for the presidential elections in Syria, as it says (that President Bashar al-Assad is the leader of the state, the army and the people in the next stage.

From here we have to realize that the missile that landed few kilometers from the Israeli Dimona reactor, certainly did not miss its target, and its goal was not either the Dimona reactor, nor the opening of a military war with Israel, but we can understand that the missile, regardless of whether it was launched behind Israeli aircraft, or launched directly, launched from air defenses to repel the Israeli attack, the message is the same, and its purpose is to balance of deterrent and remind the Israeli settlement community, as well as to decision makers In America, that we can reach the most dangerous positions, and pressure from the public against the government of Benjamin Netanyahu and the extreme right in Israel’s usurped entity, to submit to the conditions of peace.

A group of men in suits looking at a paper

Description automatically generated with low confidence

I expect very soon we will find a change in Biden’s tone towards Russia, Iran and Syria, and a retreat of the popularity of the in Israel extreme right and sharp criticism of Benjamin Netanyahu’s side, or a change in the tone of the current Israeli government, under the pressure of the Israeli street, or the orientation towards an Israeli government that is positioned as Russia wants and accepts the return of the Golan Heights, and the rest of the Shebaa Farms, acceptance of a peace process between Syria and Israel, and the restoration of the US-Iranian nuclear agreement by America. All these files are in one basket and all are sent from one side represented by Russia, Iran and Syria, and the alternative to peace (which I believe was It was agreed upon between Russia on the one hand and America on the other before the arrival of Biden). The Arab countries will not be set on fire alone, but the entire West Asia.

And if the Syrian leadership had lit the fuse and fired a barrage of missiles at Israel in 2011, targeting any vital site such as the Dimona reactor, many of the results of the ten-year war on Syria would have changed, but the Syrian leadership did not take this decision at the time, and I do not think that this decision will be taken today or tomorrow, because the battle with Israel in its reality is no longer a military warfare with calculated results, but rather a political battle, whether it is with Iran or with Syria.

Today’s missile hit its target, the target was not the Dimona reactor, but (near) the Dimona reactor in a clear message: We can bomb the Dimona reactor, nothing will not protect Israel’s sky, neither the Iron Dome, nor America is able to repel missiles deployed in southern Lebanon, Syria and Iran.

In short, the Russian message came after Biden’s positions on Putin, after the military movements in Ukraine, and after the Israeli strikes on Syria, and this message was sent from Syria and by the Syrian Arab Army, other messages will follow until Israel completes, and Biden as Putin draws it. The peace process between Syria and Israel will not be obstructed by anyone, neither Iran, Syria, Israel, nor even America, because this settlement will return the Golan and what remains of the Shebaa Farms to Syria, and the nuclear deal is restored, and the international balance in west Asia is achieved, the message is specifically addressed to the Israeli people, and by the Syrian Arab Army, and it coincided with the election of President Bashar al-Assad. It is a Russian-Iranian-Syrian message with an explosive head.

The Vienna shadowplay

The Vienna shadowplay

April 27, 2021

None of the actors can admit that revival of JCPOA pales compared with the real issue: Iranian missile power

by Pepe Escobar and first posted at Asia Times

Few people, apart from specialists, may have heard of the JCPOA Joint Commission. That’s the group in charge of a Sisyphean task: the attempt to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal through a series of negotiations in Vienna.

The Iranian negotiating team was back in Vienna yesterday, led by Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araghchi. Shadowplay starts with the fact the Iranians negotiate with the other members of the P+1 – Russia, China, France, UK and Germany – but not directly with the US.

That’s quite something: after all, it was the Trump administration that blew up the JCPOA. There is an American delegation in Vienna, but they only talk with the Europeans.

Shadowplay goes turbo when every Viennese coffee table knows about Tehran’s red lines: either it’s back to the original JCPOA as it was agreed in Vienna in 2015 and then ratified by the UN Security Council, or nothing.

Araghchi, mild-mannered and polite, has had to go on the record once again to stress that Tehran will leave if the talks veer towards “bullying”, time wasting or even a step-by-step ballroom dance, which is time wasting under different terminology.

Neither flat out optimistic nor pessimistic, he remains, let’s say, cautiously upbeat, at least in public: “We are not disappointed and we will do our job. Our positions are very clear and firm. The sanctions must be lifted, verified and then Iran must return to its commitments.”

So, at least in the thesis, the debate is still on. Araghchi: “There are two types of U.S. sanctions against Iran. First, categorized or so-called divisional sanctions, such as oil, banking and insurance, shipping, petrochemical, building and automobile sanctions, and second, sanctions against real and legal individuals.”

“Second” is the key issue. There’s absolutely no guarantee the US Congress will lift most or at least a significant part of these sanctions.

Everyone in Washington knows it – and the American delegation knows it.

When the Foreign Ministry in Tehran, for instance, says that 60% or 70% has been agreed upon, that’s code for lifting of divisional sanctions. When it comes to “second”, Araghchi has to be evasive: “There are complex issues in this area that we are examining”.

Now compare it with the assessment of informed Iranian insiders in Washington such as nuclear policy expert Seyed Hossein Mousavian:  they’re more like pessimistic realists.

That takes into consideration the non-negotiable red lines established by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei himself. Plus non-stop pressure by Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, who are all JCPOA-adverse.

But then there’s extra shadowplay. Israeli intel has already notified the security cabinet that a deal most certainly will be reached in Vienna. After all, the narrative of a successful deal is already being constructed as a foreign policy victory by the Biden-Harris administration – or, as cynics prefer, Obama-Biden 3.0.

Meanwhile, Iranian diplomacy remains on overdrive. Foreign Minister Javad Zarif is visiting Qatar and Iraq, and has already met with the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim al Thani.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, virtually at the end of his term before the June presidential elections, always goes back to the same point: no more US sanctions; Iran’s verification; then Iran will return to its “nuclear obligations”.

The Foreign Ministry has even released a quite detailed fact sheet once again stressing the need to remove “all sanctions imposed, re-imposed and re-labeled since January 20, 2017”.

The window of opportunity for a deal won’t last long. Hardliners in Tehran couldn’t care less. At least 80% of Tehran members of Parliament are now hardliners. The next President most certainly will be a hardliner. Team Rouhani’s efforts have been branded a failure since the onset of Trump’s “maximum pressure” campaign. Hardliners are already in post-JCPOA mode.

That fateful Fateh

What none of the actors in the shadowplay can admit is that the revival of the JCPOA pales compared to the real issue: the power of Iranian missiles.

In the original 2015 negotiations in Vienna – follow them in my Persian Miniatures e-book – Obama-Biden 2.0 did everything in their power to include missiles in the deal.

Every grain of sand in the Negev desert knows that Israel will go no holds barred to retain its nuclear weapon primacy in the Middle East. Via a spectacular kabuki, the fact that Israel is a nuclear power happens to remain “invisible” to most of world public opinion.

While Khamenei has issued a fatwa clearly stating that producing, stockpiling and using weapons of mass destruction – nuclear included – is haram (banned by Islam), Israel’s leadership feels free to order stunts such as the sabotage via Mossad of the (civilian) Iranian nuclear complex at Natanz.

The head of Iran’s Parliament Energy Committee, Fereydoun Abbasi Davani, even accused Washington and London of being accomplices to the sabotage of Natanz, as they arguably supplied intel to Tel Aviv.

Yet now a lone missile is literally exploding a great deal of the shadowplay.

On April 22, in the dead of night before dawn, a Syrian missile exploded only 30 km away from the ultra-sensitive Israeli nuclear reactor of Dimona. The official – and insistent – Israeli spin: this was an “errant”.

Well, not really.

Here – third video from the top – is footage of the quite significant explosion. Also significantly, Tel Aviv remained absolutely mum when it comes to offering a missile proof of ID. Was it an old Soviet 1967 SA-5? Or, rather more likely, a 2012 Iranian Fateh-110 short range surface-to-surface, manufactured in Syria as the M-600, and also possessed by Hezbollah?

A Fateh family tree can be seen in the attached chart. The inestimable Elijah Magnier has posed some very good questions about the Dimona near-hit. I complemented it with a quite enlightening discussion with physicists, with input by a military intel expert.

The Fateh-110 operates as a classic ballistic missile, until the moment the warhead starts maneuvering to evade ABM defenses. Precision is up to 10 meters, nominally 6 meters. So it hit exactly where it was supposed to hit. Israel officially confirmed that the missile was not intercepted – after a trajectory of roughly 266 km.

This opens a brand new can of worms. It implies that the performance of the much hyped and recently upgraded Iron Dome is far from stellar – and talk about an euphemism. The Fateh flew so low that Iron Dome could not identify it.

The inevitable conclusion is this was a message/warning combo. From Damascus. With a personal stamp from Bashar al-Assad, who had to clear such a sensitive missile launch. A message/warning delivered via Iranian missile technology fully available to the Axis of Resistance – proving that regional actors have serious stealth capability.

It’s crucial to remember that when Tehran dispatched a volley of deliberately older Fateh-313 versions at the US base Ayn al-Assad in Iraq, as a response to the assassination of Gen Soleimani in January 2020, the American radars went blank.

Iranian missile technology as top strategic deterrence. Now that’s the shadowplay that turns Vienna into a sideshow.

Non-Prophylactically Ironic Dome over the Occupied Palestine

Non-Prophylactically Ironic Dome over the Occupied Palestine

April 25, 2021

By Mansoureh Tajik for the Saker Blog

Exactly at 1:20 am (Tehran time) on Thursday, April 22, 2021 a missile hit near Dimona nuclear reactor, the “secret” nuclear site in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. The Jerusalem Post headlined the event as “Syrian missile lands near Dimona nuclear reactor, interception fails.”[1] The article went on to story the event as follows:

“It was unclear at first from where the missile was launched. Several signs indicated it having been launched from Iraq, while according to other reports, it came from the city of Daraa in southern Syria following an Israeli airstrike.”

“IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Hidai Zilberman told reporters that ‘the explosion was due to the firing of an SA-5 surface-to-air missile toward Israel from Syria that exploded in the southern Negev. The firing of the missile came during Israeli airstrikes in southern Syria,’ Zilberman said, and that ‘it was an errant missile and not directed toward the Dimona nuclear reactor.’”

It was not an errant missile. It did not come from where the General said it came. It was not during Israeli airstrikes in southern Syria. The interception did not fail because there was interception. The missile was directed toward exactly where it needed to hit near Dimona nuclear reactor and it hit exactly at 1:20 am the time Sardar Soleimani, the martyred commander of Qods Force was assassinated. The hit had a message.

The missile strike (not “landing” as if it were some civilian passenger airline) on the land in the vicinity of Dimona took place 22 hours after another serious explosion that happened inside Tomer factory which develops and manufactures military equipment including missiles for Israeli Defense. About Tomer, Haaretz reported:

“The explosion occurred during a ‘routine test’ by the Tomer factory for advanced weapons, which develops rocket engines, the Ofek satellite launchers and houses various types of missiles. In response to the blast, Tomer said ‘this was a controlled test with no exceptional circumstances.’ Tomer’s factory is located in central Israel, and in proximity to residential areas. The company manufactures missiles for use by the IDF and other Israeli defense systems. They are the manufacturers behind Israel’s Arrow 4 missile interception system.”[2]

Again, no. The explosion did not occur during a routine test and it was not a controlled test. The explosion was in fact controlled but not by any force friendly to Tomer, the Zionist entity, or IDF. That explosion, too, had a message. On Tuesday, April 20, in a public speech delivered during funeral procession held for Sardar Hejazi, the vice commander of Qods Force, Sardar Qa’ani, the current Commander of Qods Force (replacing Sardar Soleimani after his martyrdom) clearly and unambiguously declared:

“Today, in the resistance fronts from Iran, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Yemen, and the Children of Resistance [informal term that refers to all resistance fighters] every single day, delivers one major operation against the enemies including [US] America and Israel and they will continue this path until the global command has been achieved.”[3]

This statement was not a threat nor a warning nor a promise by Sardar Qa’ani. It was a declaration. The news vice commander of Qods Force, who was appointed after the martyrdom of Sardar Hejazi, announced on Thursday, April 22:

“The usurper Zionist regime must know that the resistance group in every segment of the planet earth are positioned right next to you and are getting you closer to your dusk.”[4]

In an interview conducted by Tasnim News Agency on Friday, April 23, with Hadi Qabisi, the director of Al-Ittihad Center for Development and Research, regarding recent explosions in Israel, he explained:

“The rules of engagement in the framework of the Resistance in terms of their demand and direction has changed. This now affects the change in balance in the region if the Resistance decides to go to war.”

“Mere shooting of missile from Syria to the occupied territories and reaching of that missile to Naqab region, regardless of what kind of missile whether it was air-to-air or surface-to-air or surface-to-surface, makes evident the inability of Israel defense system dubbed Iron Dome. This shows the erosion of Zionist Regime’s deterrence power while the capabilities of the Resistance Axis are increasing day by day. The consequence has a negative impact on all aspects of Zionist Regime. In addition, this military development cannot be separated from other events in the region such as Iran’s capability and power to strengthen its position in Vienna talks or an increasing tension between two global poles ([US] America and Russia) in other critical scenes such as Ukraine.”[5]

On Sunday, April 25, 2021, Major General Muhammad Baqeri, the Head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Armed Forces, said:

“The Zionists think they could permanently target Syrian soil, create mischief in other places and in the sea without backlash. For certain, several operations in recent days and operations that are forthcoming will have a sobering effect on them and the future of the Resistance is quite bright. We will not announce anything about who exactly is doing which operation but responses from the Resistance camp to Zionists are quite significant. We will not specify the operation but Zionist regime will not be in peace.”[6]

On April 22, 2021, a letter signed by two members of the congressmen, Ted Deutch and Michael T. McCaul, and co-signed by nearly 300 other members, urged the full funding of security assistance to Israel in the Fiscal Year 2022 appropriations bills. An excerpt from the letter reads:

“Israel continues to face direct threats from Iran and its terrorist proxies. In February, an Israeli-owned ship in the Gulf of Oman was hit by a mysterious explosion that Israel has attributed as an attack by Iran. In 2019, Hizballah launched three anti-tank missiles at an Israeli Defense Forces vehicle in Israel. Hizballah is estimated to have an arsenal of over 130,000 rockets and missiles, and is believed to be developing new precision-guided munitions to be deployed in Lebanon. American security assistance to Israel helps counter these threats, and our rock-solid security partnership serves as a deterrent against even more significant attacks on our shared interests.”

“Congress is committed to maintaining Israel’s qualitative military edge and its ability to defend itself, by itself, against persistent threats. Our aid to Israel is a vital and cost-effective expenditure which advances important U.S. national security interests in a highly challenging region.”[7]

Regarding maintaining Israel’s “qualitative military edge”, firstly, maintenance is for that which already exists. The famed prophylactic dome is engineered to emulate eyed Swiss cheese and can protect Israel exactly as much as it has done for Saudi Arabia and US bases in Iraq and Persian Gulf oil well states with flag. Secondly, the cost of maintaining illusions in West Asia has decidedly increased exponentially for the United States of America and its most cherished regimes.

صاروخ ديمونا ليس حدثاً عابراً The Dimona missile is not a passing event

* Please scroll down for the ADJUSTED English Machine translation *


صاروخ ديمونا ليس حدثاً عابراً

ناصر قنديل

ليست قضيتنا مناقشة تذهب أبعد من تفحص الرواية التي قدّمها كيان الاحتلال وجيشه للصاروخ الذي بلغ مفاعل ديمونا، والتي تقول إنه صاروخ دفاع جويّ سوريّ انزلق وهو يلاحق إحدى طائرات جيش الاحتلال. وهذه الرواية تفترض أننا نتحدث عن صاروخ دفاع جوي بمدى يزيد عن 300 كلم. وهذا الصاروخ يفترض أنه ليس موجوداً لدى الجيش السوري وقوى المقاومة، فمدى صاروخ الـ أس 200 الذي تحدّث عنه جيش الكيان هو 160 كلم أفقياً ومدى صواريخ الـ أس 300 هو 100 كلم أفقياً وصواريخ أس 400 مداها هو 250 كلم، إلا إذا كان تفسير جيش الكيان يرتكز على استخدام صواريخ مطوّرة من شبكة الـ أس 400 من طراز (40N6)، الذي يصل مداه الى 400 كلم أفقياً، وفي هذه الحالة يكون مجرد استخدام الصاروخ حدثاً بحد ذاته.

في التعامل مع الغارات التي يشنها جيش الاحتلال على جوار العاصمة السورية، بات ثابتاً خلال مدة طويلة أن جيش الاحتلال يغير بواسطة طائرات من خارج الأجواء السورية، منذ إسقاط الدفاعات الجوية السورية لطائرة اف 16، عام 2017، وأن الدفاعات السورية كانت تحصر تعاملها مع الصواريخ وتستثني استهداف الطائرات المغيرة من خارج الأجواء السورية، وفيما لم يجرؤ جيش الاحتلال على العودة لانتهاك الأجواء السورية، تخطّت سورية قاعدة حصر استهدافها للصواريخ وصولاً لاستهداف الطائرات المغيرة من خارج الأجواء السورية بمرات محدودة، ما يعني ان هذا التخطي يترجم قراراً سياسياً، لأن التصدي للصواريخ شيء والتصدي للطائرات وخارج الأجواء السورية شيء آخر. وعندما تستهدف الطائرات المغيرة خارج الأجواء السورية فالأمر بين احتمالين، أن تسقط الطائرة، أو أن يواصل الصاروخ سيره حتى مداه النهائيّ وينفجر، ووجهة الإطلاق تحدد نقطة الانفجار، وهي ليست عشوائية أبداً، بل تتم بتحكم دقيق من جهة الإطلاق.

الأمر إذن بين احتمالين لا ثالث لهما، الأول ان صاروخ دفاع جوي تعمّدت سورية إطلاقه نحو الطائرات المغيرة وهي في سماء فلسطين المحتلة، فلاحقها وبقي يواصل سيره نحو ديمونا حيث انفجر، وهو في هذه الحال من طراز مطوّر وحديث من صواريخ إس 400، وبخلفيّته قرار سياسيّ مزدوج، بتظهير وجود شبكة أس 400 حديثة، وقرار بملاحقة الطائرات المغيرة من خارج الأجواء السورية، وصولا لفرضيّة انفجار الصاروخ في مدى عمق الكيان، يعلم بسهولة من أطلق الصاروخ ترجيح نقطة انفجار صاروخه في أجواء ديمونا، فيصير القرار مثلثاً برمزية ما تعنيه ديمونا ومفاعلاتها، والاحتمال الثاني أنه صاروخ أرض أرض باليستي أطلق من الاراضي السورية نحو منطقة قريبة من مفاعل ديمونا في رسالة مباشرة تقول إن المفاعل بات هدفاً مشروعاً لصواريخ سورية ومحور المقاومة رداً على الاعتداءات المتكررة، والرسالة ليست عادية ولا عابرة في هذه الحالة.

القضية الأهم التي يثيرها صاروخ ديمونا هي، فشل جيش الاحتلال في اعتراضه، رغم وجود قبته الحديدية، وشبكات صواريخ حيتس وباتريوت. والأمر هنا ليس بلوغ صاروخ أطلق من عمق مسافة لا تقل عن خمسين كلم داخل الحدود السورية، إلى منطقة القشرة الحدودية في الأراضي المحتلة، كما حدث قبل أسابيع قليلة عندما سقط الصاروخ السوري في الحدود الجنوبيّة للبنان، بعد عبور سماء الجولان المحتل من دون قيام شبكات صواريخ جيش الاحتلال بالنجاح في اعتراضه. فالقضية هذه المرة أن الصاروخ عبر أكثر من 250 كلم في سماء فلسطين المحتلة، وتجاوز شبكات رادار وإنذار مبكر وصواريخ، وصولاً الى ديمونا، ما يقول شيئاً غاية في الخطورة، وهو أن صاروخاً بمفرده ينجح بفعل ذلك، من دون أن تتولى صواريخ رديفة تشويش شبكات القبة الحديدية وردائفها، فكيف عندما تكون المواجهة المفتوحة، ويحدث ما يصفه قادة جيش الاحتلال بشتاء الصواريخ، المتعدّد المصادر والاتجاهات، وهذا إن قال شيئاً فهو يقول فقط، وفقط لمئة مرة، إن الكيان أوهن من بيت العنكبوت، وإن قادته يكذبون ليس في روايتهم عن الصاروخ فقط، بل في ما تحدثوا عنه مراراً من فعالية القبب الحديدية والفولاذية، فإذ هي مجرد قبب من ورق أو من حبر أو من كلام فقط وفقط.

The Dimona missile is not a passing event

– Our issue is not a discussion that goes beyond examining the account provided by the occupation entity and its army to the missile that reached the Dimona reactor, which says it is a Syrian air defense missile that slipped while pursuing one of the aircraft of the occupation army. This missile assumes that it does not exist with the Syrian army and the resistance forces, the range of the S-200 missile that the entity army talked about is 160 km horizontally and the range of the S300 missiles is 100 km horizontally and the S400 missiles have a range of 100 km horizontally 250 km, unless the interpretation of the entity’s army is based on the use of missiles developed from the S400  (40N6)network, which has a range of up to 400 km horizontally, in which case the mere use of the missile is an event in itself.

– In dealing with the raids carried out by the occupation army on the vicinity of the Syrian capital, the occupation planes have been bombing from outside the Syrian airspace, since the Syrian air defenses shot down the F-16, in 2017, and that Syrian defenses have been limiting their dealings with missiles and excluding targeting aircraft from outside Syrian airspace, and while the occupation army did not dare to return to violate Syrian airspace, Syria, in limited times, bypassed the rule of restricting its targeting of missiles to target of the raiding aircraft from outside the Syrian airspace, which means is that this bypassing reflects a political decision, because countering missiles is one thing and countering aircraft outside Syrian airspace is another. When aircrafts are targeted outside Syrian airspace, there is between possibilities that the aircraft will fall, or that the missile will continue to its final range and explode, and the launch destination determines the point of explosion, which is not random at all, but is carried out with precise control from the launch side.

– So there are two possibilities, the first is that an air defense missile deliberately fired by Syria towards the raiding planes in the skies of occupied Palestine, and continued to march towards Dimona reactor where it exploded, in this case a sophisticated and modern type of S-400 missiles, thus, reflecting a dual political decision, to confirm the existence of a modern S400 network, and a decision to pursue aircraft raiding from outside Syrian airspace, leading to the assumption of knowing who launched the missile easily to favor the point of its explosion in the airspace of Dimona, so the decision becomes tripartite symbolically what Dimona and its reactors mean, and the second possibility is that it is a surface-to-surface ballistic missile launched from Syrian territory towards an area close to the Dimona reactor in a direct message saying that the reactor has become a legitimate target for Syrian missiles and the axis of resistance in response to repeated attacks, and the message is not normal in this case.

– The most important issue raised by the Dimona missile is the failure of the occupation army to intercept it, despite the presence of its iron dome, Hitz and Patriot networks of rockets. This time, the issue is that the missile crossed more than 250 kilometers in the skies of occupied Palestine, bypassing radar networks, early warning and missiles, all the way to Dimona, which says something very dangerous, a single missile succeeds in doing so without auxiliary missiles taking over the disruption of the dome networks. How about when the confrontation is open, and what the leaders of the occupation army describe as the winter of missiles, multi-source and directional, and this incident confirms a hundred times that the entity is weaker than the spider’s web, and that its leaders lie not only in this incident, but in what they have spoken about repeatedly in terms of the effectiveness of iron and steel domes, as they are mere domes of paper, ink, or only words.

Resistance Axis on war alert, to ‘openly’ target Israel if Iran attacks continue: Hezbollah insider

April 22, 2021

April 22, 2021

Description: 

Senior Lebanese political analyst and editor-in-chief of the Al-Binaa newspaper, Nasser Qandil, says the entire Axis of Resistance is now on war alert and prepared to respond by ‘openly’ targeting deep inside Israel amid rising tensions between Tel Aviv and Tehran.

In a recent interview on Al Mayadeen, Qandil, who has close relations with Hezbollah, declared that the US now has to choose between either committing to an agreement over Iran’s nuclear program and reining in Tel Aviv, or a war scenario in which the Axis of Resistance will openly target Israel.

The ‘Axis of Resistance’ broadly refers to a strategic anti-Israel/anti-US imperialist alliance composed of, but not limited to, Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Iraq’s Hashed al-Shaabi, Yemen’s Ansarullah, and various Palestinian armed factions.

Transcript:

 Editor-in-Chief of the Lebanese newspaper Al-Binaa, Nasser Qandil:

I would like to add certain (inside) information. Yesterday evening, I received certain (inside) information from influential leaders in the Axis of Resistance that the decision of a direct confrontation has been taken. Open confrontation is around the corner, and unless Washington succeeds in deterring Israel from further escalation, the Israeli interior will be ‘openly’ targeted. (In other words,) the party behind the targeting will be known. Official statements will be issued saying: ‘we are the ones who bombarded you’. We are on the brink of a war. This is nothing short of that.

Even the Resistance (Axis) (as a whole) now considers itself fully concerned. I mean Iran is now in confrontation and is defending itself. This is true. However, there are accumulating scores (that haven’t been settled) and (this current period offers) the resistance forces a golden opportunity as Israel is preoccupied by the confrontation with Iran. On one hand, the resistance in Lebanon (Hezbollah) has reserved its right to respond to the Israeli operation in which one of its fighters fell as a martyr, and we remember the commitment of his eminence, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, where he confirmed that the response (for the attack) is coming. (On the other hand,) Syria has also accumulated scores from many Israeli raids (against it). Consequently, the entire region may go towards a confrontation in which occupied Palestine and the vital Israeli facilities will be the arena.

The US is now having discussions with the Israelis. It has one choice, i.e. to tell the Israelis: ‘we are responsible for protecting you, unless you initiate a war. We are now in negotiations, and we ask you to refrain from any escalation’. If the US wants to use its position to play both ends against the middle…

The host:

It is worth noting that Israel says that it informed the US about the attack against the Natanz (nuclear plant) and even the Iranian ship earlier.


Qandil:

That is true. we cannot imagine that Israel would dare to do what it did without the US not only having knowledge (of the situation), but also turning a blind eye to it in order to test how far Iran would go (to defend itself). If the Iranian position favors maintaining the negotiating climate and abandoning the military option, the US will encourage Israel to carry out more strikes, hoping that it will weaken Iran’s negotiating position.

(However,) the Iranian position today is clear and no longer needs analysis. It is based on the following rule: ‘we will respond (to the attacks) at all costs, and our response will be painful and harsh. Once again, the US is back to square one again. You want an agreement (with Iran)? There is a price to this agreement, and you have to pay it.

المنطقة على حافة الهاوية فوق الصفيح الساخن

بالتزامن مع انطلاق مفاوضات فيينا التي فرضت خلالها إيران شروطها لجهة استبعاد المشاركة الأميركية في قاعة الاجتماعات ونزع العلم الأميركي من القاعة، طالما لم تعُد واشنطن للاتفاق النووي من بوابة رفعها للعقوبات على إيران، بدأت جولة استهداف إسرائيلية استفزازية مكثفة لإيران، تضمنت خلال عشرة أيام عملية استهداف لإحدى السفن الإيرانية في البحر الأحمر، وغارات على مواقع إيرانيّة في سورية، وعملية تخريب في منشأة نطنز النووية داخل إيران.

الإنجاز الدبلوماسي الضخم الذي حققته طهران تجسّد، بقبول واشنطن أن عليها التقدم بالخطوة الأولى للعودة المتبادلة إلى الالتزامات المنصوص عليها في الاتفاق النووي، وقبول واشنطن بالتخلي عن أطروحات من نوع تعديل الاتفاق بالبنود النووية ومداها الزمني وتوسيع نطاقه ليطال الصواريخ البالستية الإيرانية والملفات الإقليمية، وقبول عنوان العودة الحصرية للاتفاق كما تم توقيعه في عام 2015، وصولاً لإعلان أميركي واضح بالاستعداد لرفع عقوبات لا تتسق مع الاتفاق النوويّ لضمان عودة إيران الى الاتفاق وموجباته، خشية أن تبلغ إيران مرحلة امتلاك مقدرات إنتاج سلاح نووي بينما المفاوضات تراوح وتستهلك الوقت.

السعي لتخريب فرص التوصل للعودة للاتفاق معلن في كيان الاحتلال، وطرق التخريب لم تعد متاحة من خلال إقناع الإدارة الأميركية الجديدة بفرملة الاندفاع نحو العودة إلى الاتفاق النووي مع إيران، والتباين واضح في مقاربة موقع الاتفاق النووي من السياسات في كل من واشنطن وتل أبيب، لذلك لجأت قيادة كيان الإحتلال الى بديل عملياتي هو الضغط الميداني الاستفزازي القائم على توسيع نطاق الأذى بإيران أملاً ببلوغ حافة الحرب معها، على قاعدة ان هناك معاهدة تعاون استراتيجي ملزمة للأميركيين بدخول اي حرب يمكن لكيان الاحتلال التعرّض لها او التورط بها.

الواضح أن إيران وقوى محور المقاومة قد قرّروا عدم الأخذ بالحسابات التي تراهن عليها قيادة كيان الاحتلال، وعنوانها دفع إيران وقوى المقاومة للانكفاء رغم التعرّض للأذى وجرح الكرامة، أملاً بخلق مناخ يضغط على المفاوضات، ويقنع الأميركيين بالقدرة على إضعاف إيران، والتمهل قبل الموافقة على ما لا تريد قيادة الكيان أن يحدث، فالواضح أن قرار الردّ قد بدأ، وهو متواصل وسيستمر، وعلى الأميركيين أن يتحمّلوا تبعات معاهدتهم الاستراتيجية مع كيان الاحتلال، مقابل سعيهم للعودة إلى الاتفاق النووي، وإذا كانوا عاجزين عن ضبط أداء قيادة الكيان تحت سقف يتيح مواصلة هادئة للمفاوضات، فعليهم أن يختاروا بين الاتفاق والمعاهدة، وتلك مشكلتهم وليست مشكلة إيران ولا مشكلة قوى المقاومة.

الرد الإيرانيّ، كما تقول قيادة الكيان، بدأ بصاروخ بعيد المدى على سفينة عائدة للكيان مقابل ميناء الجميرة في الإمارات، وإيران تقول إنها ستردّ على استهداف منشأة نطنز سيكون في عمق الكيان، وتقول إن تصعيد تخصيب اليورانيوم الى 60% هو أحد الردود على الاستهداف طالما أن أحداً لا يملك لا القدرة ولا الشجاعة لفعل ما يلزم للجم كيان الاحتلال.

واشنطن وعواصم الغرب معاً أمام مفصل نوعيّ سيقرّر الكثير، والكرة في ملعبهم جميعاً، كما تقول إيران.

In conjunction with the start of the Vienna negotiations, during which Iran imposed its conditions in terms of excluding the American participation in the conference room and removing the American flag from the hall, as long as Washington did not return to the nuclear agreement from the gateway to lifting sanctions on Iran, Israel began an intense provocative campaign against Iran, which included, within ten days, the targeting of one of the Iranian ships. in the Red Sea, raids on Iranian sites in Syria, and sabotage at the Natanz nuclear facility inside Iran.

The huge diplomatic achievement achieved by Tehran was embodied by Washington’s acceptance that it must take the first step for a reciprocal return to the obligations stipulated in the nuclear agreement, and Washington’s acceptance to abandon the amendment of the terms of the nuclear agreement and its timeframe and expand its scope to Iranian ballistic missiles and regional files, and return to the agreement as was signed in In 2015, leading to an American announcement of its readiness to lift sanctions not related to the nuclear agreement to ensure Iran’s return to the agreement and its obligations, fearing that Iran would reach the stage of acquiring the capabilities to produce a nuclear weapon while negotiations hover around and consume time.

The Zionist entity’s endeavor to sabotage the chances of reaching a return to the agreement is declared, and the methods of sabotage are no longer available by persuading the new American administration to brake the return to the nuclear agreement with Iran, and the contrast is clear in Washington and Tel Aviv. Therefore, the occupation entity resorted to an operational alternative, which is provocative field pressure, hoping to reach the edge of war with Iran, on the basis that there is a strategic cooperation treaty that binds the Americans to enter any war that the occupation entity can be subjected to or become involved in.

It is clear that Iran and the forces of the resistance axis have decided not to accept the calculations of the leadership of the occupation entity, whose title is pushing Iran and the resistance forces to retreat, convincing the Americans of the ability to weaken Iran, and slowing down before agreeing to what the entity’s leadership does not want to happen. It is clear that the response decision has begun, and it is continuing. And it will continue, and the Americans must bear the consequences of their strategic treaty with the occupation entity, in exchange for their endeavor to return to the nuclear agreement, and if they are unable to control the the entity’s leadership under a roof that allows for a quiet continuation of negotiations, then they must choose between the agreement and the treaty, and that is their problem and not the problem of Iran nor the problem of powers Resistance.

The Iranian response, as the entity’s leadership says, began with a long-range missile on a ship belonging to the entity opposite the port of Jumeirah in UAE, and Iran says it will respond to the targeting of the Natanz facility, which will be in the depth of the entity, and says that the escalation of uranium enrichment to 60% is one of the responses to targeting as long as No one has the ability or the courage to do what is necessary to restrain the occupation entity.

Washington and the capitals of the West together in front of a specific joint that will determine a lot, and the ball is in their court all, as Iran says.

IRAN REJECTS IRAQI-US “COSMETIC SURGERY,” BUT US-IRAN COOPERATION IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE 1/6

Posted on  by Elijah J Magnier

By Elijah J. Magnier:

Following the assassination of Brigadier General Qassem Soleimani, head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps – Quds Brigade, the Supreme Leader Sayyed Ali Khamenei vowed before the world, but above all for his allies, that the US would pay the price by leaving West Asia. What Sayyed Khamenei said reflects his opinion and wishes as a Supreme Leader. These wishes do not always coincide with the State of Iran’s behaviour, which must build a relationship with other states according to Iran’s national interests. There is always a flexible line between what the Leader of the Revolution says and how he would like the Iranian government to act. 

However, when Sayyed Khamenei noted that no direct meetings would be accepted unless the US withdraw the harsh sanctions, he drew an unbreakable line the government will have to stick to, without necessarily including all sanctions but certainly the most important ones. Hence, Vienna’s indirect dialogue between the Iranians and those who signed the JCPOA (nuclear deal) but did not withdraw unilaterally as former President Donald Trump did.

Although Sayyed Ali Khamenei announced no time frame for the withdrawal of all US troops from West Asia, there is no doubt that Iran is ready to sit at the same table as its enemy if the outcome could help ease the economic situation in Iran. To Iran, the US administration, regardless of whether who sits at the top of its pyramid is republican or democrat, is not trustworthy. It can revoke international agreements, blatantly disregarding international law. However, in many circumstances, Iran’s supreme Leaders Ayatollah Khomeini and Sayyed Ali Khamenei have allowed the state to meet the Americans so as to favour Iran’s interests even if, from Iran’s perspective, the shadow of war with the US will always hover over the country as long as American forces are in the area. 

The Iranian officials are aware that the Biden administration faces many domestic and foreign challenges, with Russia and China as urgencies. However, for Tehran, its well-being represents the first urgency, and it is unwilling to understand the range of Biden’s priorities. This is why Tehran will not allow the US to rest in Iraq and why it continues to support its own allies in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon and Gaza. 

In Iraq, officials are promoting some “cosmetic surgery” to apply to the US forces’ presence, as a compromise between what Iran wants and where Iraqis believe their interests lie. Suggesting replacing the US troops with a “European NATO” is a way to tell Biden’s administration that withdrawal is not really on the Iraqi agenda. With or without a nuclear deal, the US can only dream of a peaceful Mesopotamia for its forces in the months to come if the withdrawal is not reached or replaced by a “European NATO”. 

However, total compliance and return to the nuclear agreement will undoubtedly slow down the Iraqi resistance’s aggression against the US forces, which, more than ever, will not abandon Mesopotamia to China, Russia and Iran…

Nasrallah: US’ top priority is preventing a China-Russia-Iran alliance

April 05, 2021

Description:

In a recent televised speech, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah claimed that the Biden administration’s top priority today was to prevent the formation of a major alliance or axis between China, Russia, and Iran.

Nasrallah also claimed that the United States and Israel were today in a state of decline, while the Iran-led ‘Axis of Resistance’ was on an upward trajectory.

The ‘Axis of Resistance’ broadly refers to a strategic anti-Israel/anti-US imperialist alliance composed of, but not limited to, Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Iraq’s Hashed al-Shaabi, Yemen’s Ansarullah, and various Palestinian armed factions.

Transcript:

Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah:

Of course, the Israelis too – (staying on) the Israeli file – the Israelis these days, I mean in the past few weeks and months, almost every day, despite the (many military/security) manoeuvres, they (nevertheless) express very publicly their concerns and worries over the fact that the Axis of Resistance is developing, that it is developing its capabilities. On the other hand, yes indeed, the Resistance (Axis) is working on the development and accumulation of its capabilities. This means that their worry has (real) foundations, (the Israelis) are not making up (this sense) of worry and concern.

Today, the Axis of Resistance is not silent, it is not an axis experiencing stagnation. On the contrary (my) honourable brothers, the Axis of Resistance has (successfully) passed – in these past 10 years – through the worst, most dangerous phase of its life and history. This is evident in what happened in Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq (these past 10 years), as well as (what happened in) the entire region, and in the severe embargo and maximum sanctions (campaign) on Iran and so on.

Indeed, this axis is facing these threats with increased work, hard work, diligent work, away from any type of showing-off (i.e. fruitless muscle-flexing). (The goal of all this work) is to accumulate the capabilities and power (of the Resistance Axis), (capabilities) that will decisively decide the future.

I would like to conclude with the following words; I wish to depict the international and regional scene, and share some advice too, advice to (some in) Lebanon and to the region as a whole, not only to the Lebanese. Today, there is definitely a (particular) scene in the world, and I will be brief here, as I have already taken a lot of time and I have only got a few more minutes according to the brothers. They gave me limited time, otherwise, these days I’m taking much time – I’m delivering long speeches.

There are significant international developments (occurring today), and it is clear that the top priority of the US administration is China and Russia. China as an economic force that can become the top economic force in the world, which Biden says will not happen (as long as) he is around. Russia, of course, is not an economic threat. They rather view it more from the military, political and security angles, in addition to competition (with it) on the global (level).

There are ongoing American efforts to prevent the formation of a coalition, front, axis, or something of this nature, whereby Iran stands besides China and Russia. For this reason, they are seeking to address the nuclear file issue with Iran, with an emphasis on diplomacy. Of course, the emphasis on diplomacy here is not an American act of kindness; it is a testament to the power of Iran. By the way, Iran’s position on this issue is powerful and firm. What (Iran) did not give to Trump under the maximum sanctions (campaign) and daily war threats, it will not give (Biden) today while it stands on the verge of (successfully) overcoming the embargo and sanctions phase.

So, these are the priorities of the Americans, they are trying to work out how to deal with the files of the (Middle East) region in one way or another; let’s go to Yemen and see how we can extinguish the Yemen war, or let’s go to Afghanistan and see how we can clean up the situation in Afghanistan. (This is what is on their mind), but their approach is not clear yet, because they have not taken final decisions (on these high-level matters), according to the information (we currently have).

Regardless of what some analysts say, concerning Syria and Lebanon, it is obvious that the (the American side) is distracted from Palestine. What I want to say – through this quick analysis – to the friends of America in our region, and to whoever is betting on the American administration in our region, I say to them that (America’s) priorities – or in other words, there are new developments that they need to take into consideration.

The first development is that the new American priorities are not (related to) our region, except for what relates to Israel. Their priorities now are Russia, China, and how to resolve the issue with Iran. Thus, if you want to resolve your crises, end your wars, solve your problems, improve your situation and achieve compromises, if you are waiting for the Americans to achieve all of this, then the wait will be very long.

Secondly, America is no longer the America that you know. There is a new term that his eminence Imam Khamenei presented last year, and he had placed a lot of emphasis on it. I hereby call for reflection on (this term) so that we don’t take it as a mere headline or form of political rhetoric: “The decline of America”. America is in decline. In the words of some literature, it can be described as (on a) “descending arc”. America is now in a state of fall; in a state of descent.

America’s upcoming challenges today, most of them are related to internal problems, regarding the Corona Virus; the economic situation and its consequences; the white race (and race-related issues), fanaticism, infighting and associated dangers. America has never experienced internal dangers the likes of which it is facing today. This requires a prolonged discussion, but there is a (certain) outlook (on this issue which I will share later).

Of course, when we talk strategically, we are not talking about one year, or two, three, four or five – we are talking about a trajectory. The trajectory of the US is a trajectory of decline, descent, and downfall. Whereas the trajectory of the Axis of Resistance in the region, (with its) states, movements, and peoples, is an upward trajectory.

Priorities will (thus) be different. Therefore, I hereby call on you all, as states, peoples, regimes, movements, peoples, sects, groups, and whatever else: let us not wait for America, let us not wait for the (rest of the) world. Let us not wait for international developments. Let us hold dialogue on the regional and national (levels). Let us hold dialogue among all the states of the region, and dialogue among the peoples of the region, in order to resolve our problems and crises.

Let us not put off until tomorrow what we can do today, as the present day is better for you than tomorrow. I believe that all those who belong to the Axis of Resistance, as a result of the honesty, sincerity, and concern (they have) for their homelands, they are ready to reach certain resolutions, solutions, and compromises that would allow us to overcome all these difficult phases. This is the horizon that we see before us.

Of course, in light of this international and regional shift, Israel, just like its master, is on a path of decline. It is on “the descending arc”. The earnest wish of his eminence, (the late) Sheikh Ahmad Zein, that which the brothers spoke about before me, this wish is strong and vibrant. God willing, some of us – at the very least – will enter (the city of) al-Quds and pray in al-Quds, God willing. This is the horizon which we can see.

NO TIME FOR ISRAEL TO CELEBRATE ELECTION “VICTORY”

South Front

Israel had no time to enjoy the successful election and Benjamin Netanyahu’s slim victory when Iran reportedly reminded Israel of itself.

On March 25th, while sailing from Tanzania to India, the Israeli-flagged ship “Lori” was allegedly struck by missiles in the Gulf of Oman.

Tehran was immediately accused, and the strike only caused material losses, but no casualties. Photographs of the damaged hull of the ship were shared on Twitter, but little else in the way of evidence.

This alleged incident is the third in a presumed exchange.It began on February 26th, when the Israeli-flagged MV HELIOS RAY suffered a number of explosions, in the Gulf of Oman. It was blamed on Iran.

Then, on March 11th, an explosion struck the Iranian-owned SHAHR E KORD off the coast of Syria. Tehran called it a terrorist attack, but not specifically blaming Tel Aviv.

On Syrian soil, approximately 15 unidentified gunmen attacked posts of the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Corps and Iranian-backed forces in southern Raqqa, according to the Eye of the Euphrates. They infiltrated the government-controlled area in southern Raqqa with three trucks. The unknown militants abandoned their vehicles and attacked the position near the village of Maksar. At least 9 Syrian and Iranian-backed fighters were killed, and 6 others were captured.

In northern Syria, the situation is becoming increasingly chaotic. Despite a Russian-Turkish agreement to open humanitarian crossings in Idlib, but no such luck.

Ankara immediately denied agreeing to anything of the sort, and even if it didn’t, militants blocked the crossings.

Syrian authorities reopened the Saraqib and Abu Zindain crossings on March 25th. However, both remained blocked by the al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).

Turkish Forces in the fashion of how they impose the ceasefire agreement in Greater Idlib undertook no action in assisting the opening of the crossings.

In Iraq, the situation is stacked even more against the U.S. and its allies. On March 25th, five US supply convoys were attacked in different parts of Iraq. Three of the attacks were carried out by pro-Iranian groups, while two are still unclaimed.

These attacks continue to be non-lethal and rather cause only material damage.

These groups, as well as all other Iranian allies are a part of the unofficial Axis of Resistance. Yemen’s Ansar Allah are as well a part of it.

In recent days, the Houthis (as Ansar Allah is more commonly known) were accused by Saudi Arabia of being cowards.

While that accusation was sinking in, Riyadh’s forces targeted al-Hudaydah with heavy artillery.

This is explicitly prohibited under a ceasefire agreement, and still violations take place almost hourly. The Saudi-led coalition continues its heavy airstrike activity, and is being steadily pushed back on the ground by the Houthis.

More retaliatory actions are likely expected by Israel, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia in the coming days and weeks, since the Iranian-aligned bloc seems to be making progress.

Syria: Putin’s ‘Tomahawk’ blow (unconfirmed-deeply censored)

By VT Editors -March 22, 202151858

In Syria, Russia is shifting into high gear and this pleasantly surprises the Resistance Axis.

[ Editor’s Note: The machine translation from the Russian to English is rough. I have tried to clean it up as best I could…JD ]

After pushing back with electronic warfare, the Israeli air force both from the skies of Lebanon and the skies of southern Lebanon, Russia made Hmeimim a base to receive Iranian military flights, deploying Su-34s, these long-range bombers, capable of pulverizing the terrorist positions.

It then activated the Iskandar and Tochka units against the US / Turkey oil smuggling sites, then withdrawing its forces from T4, for Iran to make it a drone base, located at a few kilometers from the illegal US base in al-Tanf, very close to the border with Ira.

It conducts exercises with the Syrian army there in simultaneous drone attacks and not just any drone but for example the drone Stealth, anti electronic warfare arash with 24 hour endurance and 1,400 kilometer range, and long after doing all of this, Putin’s Russia “the killer” would even be willing to share his “ballistic” reverse engineering experiences. with the Resistance. And how ?

According to The National Interest, Russia, having already captured the Tomahawk tactical cruise missiles fired between 2018 and 2019 against Syria, is now fully unraveling the enigma and sharing it among allies and partners.

According to Avia.pro which reports the information, “these are Tomahawk Block IV cruise missiles that were fired in Syria, without them exploding:” Moscow has obviously had a great success in dismantling the entire mechanism and by finding out how to neutralize it.

Inspection of the two unexploded Tomahawks intercepted by the Syrians as booty and then brought back to Moscow has enabled Russia to develop new jamming equipment.

Hence this particularly effective abolition bubble which has for some time been targeting all US and NATO planes and helicopters in the skies of Syria and even beyond in the Mediterranean and in southern Lebanon.

The United States has come to understand the flaws and has started delivering a new version of Tomahawk to the US military, but things are far from being sorted out as aircraft GPS links continue to be cut. when Russia wishes it both in Syria, in Lebanon but also in the skies of Israel and that this fact comes not only from the Russian electronic war complexes fixed and implanted on the ground but also from the systems on board Russian planes ” .

And Avia.pro to emphasize: “Besides, this experience served Abu Kamal well, which the United States bombed on February 25, Abu Kamal where two US F-15s bombed the positions of the Iraqi allies of the Syrian army, but where they missed everything since out of 7 missiles fired, 5 were scrambled and deviated from their trajectory while two only hit weapons and an empty metal cabin. This same experience of jamming has also served the Syrian army again against Israel, whose last two Delilah missile strikes were also a resounding failure.

But since the divorce is now consummated between Russia on the one hand and the United States on the other, against the backdrop of a reminder from the Russian ambassador in Washington, Putin did not stop there in Syria. . According to SouthFront, a terrorist training camp run by “Western trainers” was heavily bombed by the Russian air force on Sunday.

“The Russian military has succeeded in locating a Western mercenary base in northwestern Syria involved in training pro-Ankara terrorists. After identifying the base, powerful FAB-500 air strikes took place and the camp was reduced to ashes. It was the village of Benin that was reportedly targeted.

A trainer and a group of terrorist leaders were eliminated. We speak mainly of Turkish mercenaries, however, earlier in the same regions of Syria, representatives of private military companies from a number of European states were noticed there. For the moment, the command of the Russian aerospace forces in Syria has not commented on this. “

In short, Russia has gone all out. Hours earlier, the Syrian army launched a series of powerful strikes on Turkish territory. Despite Turkish air defense systems deployed in the Turkish border area, the Turkish DCA was unable to intercept a single launched missile.

الدور الروسيّ العائم…ورمال المنطقة المتحرّكة!

محمد صادق الحسينيّ

يذهب الكثيرون بعيداً في تصنيف القوة الروسيّة الصاعدة بأنها حليف استراتيجيّ لمحور المقاومة ولديهم الكثير مما يخدم تصنيفهم هذا.

فيما يذهب آخرون وهم ليسوا قلة، بتصنيف الروس بأنهم بقايا سياسة قيصريّة تبحث عن مصالح تاريخيّة في منطقتنا من المياه الدافئة، الى مصادر الطاقة الواعدة، وهؤلاء أيضاً لديهم الكثير مما قد يؤكد تصنيفهم هذا.

غير أنّ الجغرافيا السياسية وموازين القوى المتحركة على أرضنا والتحوّلات الدولية المحيطة ببلادنا العربية والإسلامية والتحوّلات الروسية الداخلية ما بعد الحرب الباردة قد تعزز تصنيفاً آخر، فلنرَ ماذا تقول تلك الوقائع:

أولاً: إنّ صعود فلاديمير بوتين لسدة الحكم في موسكو على أنقاض البيروسترويكا والحرب الباردة جعل روسيا الحديثة تظهر بمثابة خليط من القيصرية والسوفياتيّة، ذلك انّ حاكم روسيا الجديد قام ببناء سياسته الخارجية الجديدة على 3 أركان هي:

1

ـ إحياء القومية الروسية.

2

ـ إحياء الكنيسة الأرثوذكسية.

3

ـ إحياء سياسة الاتحاد السوفياتيّ الخارجية تجاه الحلفاء التقليديين (أو ما يسمّونها في موسكو بمحاسن الاتحاد السوفياتي).

وقد شكلت هذه في ما بات يُعرَف بعقيدة بوتين.

ثانياً: برز نجم بوتين ودور روسيا الجديد بالترافق مع تحوّلات دوليّة مهمّة يمكن تلخيصها بأنها نهاية «حرب عالمية» ضدّ الإرهاب كان بطلها محور المقاومة بقيادة الجمهورية الإسلامية ما جعل الحاكم الروسي الجديد الباحث عن إحياء دور بلاده السوفياتية القديمة بحاجة ماسة ليكون المظلة الحامية لهذا النصر التاريخيّ حتى يتمكّن من اقتطاف كلّ ثمار النصر هذا لصالح بلاده مرة واحدة.

ثالثاً: ولأنّ زعيم روسيا القومية الصاعدة يعرف تماماً أنّ بلاده «القارية» في جغرافيّتها السياسية ستكون بحاجة للخروج إلى أعالي البحار إذا ما أرادت أن تلعب دور المنافس الجديد للقوى البحرية الكبرى، لذلك رأى انّ تحقيق حلم استعادة الدور الروسي العالمي يتطلب منه أن يحيي السلوك القيصري التاريخي في التعامل مع كلّ اللاعبين الصغار كما الكبار على حدّ سواء، المنتصرين منهم كما المهزومين في الحرب على الإرهاب.

وهنا تماماً يمكن فهم سلوك موسكو البراغماتي والنفعي المحض تجاه تركيا وأخيراً السعودية والإمارات وقطر، ما جعلها (أيّ موسكو) تظهر على غير توافق مع قوى محور المقاومة وأحياناً على تضادّ، ولو في الشكل.

رابعاً: ثمة عامل رابع شديد التعقيد يدخل في تحديد السياسة الروسية البوتينية إذا جاز التعبير وهو:

علاقة الروس باليهود تاريخياً وحاضراً والتي يمكن تلخيصها كما يلي:

١– كانت روسيا القيصريّة أول مَن شنّت الحملة المناهضة لليهود في ثمانينيات القرن التاسع عشر، فيما عرف بسياسة «البوغروم» باعتبارهم المافيا أو القوة الخفية المسيطرة على المال والاقتصاد الروسي والتي اعتبرت بمثابة التهديد للأمن القومي الروسي القيصري آنذاك.

٢– كانت روسيا أول دولة أو من بين أولى الدول التي اعترفت بالكيان الصهيوني بعد الحرب العالمية الثانية مباشرة.

٣– لدى روسيا نحو مليون ونصف مليون مواطن روسي داخل الكيان يحملون الجنسيّة المزدوجة، يقضي الدستور الروسي بواجب الدفاع عن أمنهم كمواطنين مثلهم مثل المواطنين داخل الاتحاد الروسي.

ولما كان الرئيس فلاديمير بوتين قومياً وقيصرياً في عقله الباطني السياسي، فهو مرة كان مضطراً لمهاجمة المافيا الماليّة اليهودية الموجودة في تلابيب الاتحاد الروسي وقمعها بشدّة وهو في حال صعود وتعزيز موقع قيادته الجديد تحت عنوان الدفاع عن أمن الدولة، فيما هو الآن مضطر كثيراً وكثيراً جداً، لمداراة من تبقى من هذه المافيا التي لا تزال متحكّمة في كثير من دوائر الاقتصاد والإعلام الروسيّين، من أجل توظيف ذلك في سياسته الخارجية التي باتت تتطلب كسب جميع من في الداخل ومن في الخارج من قوى مؤثرة، في إطار مواجهة سياسة الحصار والبطش الأميركي ضدّه.

عقيدة بوتين المشار إليها آنفاً ومجموعة العوامل المؤثرة التي لعبت دوراً في تسلّمه مقاليد الاتحاد الروسي أولاً ومن ثم الجغرافيا السياسية المتغيرة التي رفعته من مجرد حاكم روسيّ قويّ الى لاعب دولي كبير، هي التي تفسّر اليوم وجهَي التناقض في الظاهرة البوتينية تجاه بلادنا العربية والإسلامية، بين مَن يعتبره مقاولاً شريفاً مدافعاً عن حقوقنا في المعركة المناهضة للإرهاب وللامبريالية، وبين من يضعه في صف المقاول المتعارضة مصالحه مع سياساتنا المقاومة ضدّ الامبريالية والصهيونية.

خلاصة القول، فإنه وفي ظلّ التحوّلات الاقليمية والدولية المتسارعة فإنّ موسكو بقيادة بوتين قوة صديقة لنا بقدر ما نحن أقوياء وثابتون ونعرف ماذا نريد وقادرين على توظيف قوّتها باتجاه ما نريد، تماماً كما فعلت ايران وسورية حتى الآن.

وفي غير ذلك فقد لا نستطيع الاستفادة منها، بل وربما خسرانها، في حال فكرنا بطريقة المقاول بدلاً من المقاوم.

بعدنا طيّبين قولوا الله…

Threatening Syria’s First Lady Shows NATO’s Depravity

Threatening Syria's First Lady Shows NATO's Depravity - Islam Times

Threatening Syria’s First Lady – a national heroine – with prosecution for war crimes is NATO powers reaching into the gutter, Finian Cunningham writes.

This week marks the 10th anniversary since the United States and its NATO allies launched a devastating covert war of aggression for regime change in Syria. Ten years on, the Arab nation is struggling with war reconstruction, a struggle made all the more onerous because of economic sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union.

Syria and allied forces from Russia, Iran, Iraq and Lebanon’s Hezbollah won the war, defeating legions of mercenary terrorist fighters who were armed and infiltrated into Syria by NATO. Nearly half a million Syrians were killed and half the pre-war population of 23 million was displaced.

But tragically the war is not over yet. It has moved to new hybrid phase of economic warfare in the form of Western sanctions and blockade on Syria.

The barbarity of Western sanctions on Syria have necessitated the cover of distractive media narratives.

This explains the sensation of British media reports that Asma al-Assad, the wife of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, is being investigating by London’s Metropolitan police for war crimes. Asma (45) was born in London, was educated there and holds British nationality. Although she has Syrian heritage.

Now British authorities are mulling stripping her of nationality and seeking her extradition over charges that she aided and abetted war crimes, including preposterously, the use of chemical weapons against civilians. There is practically no chance of a prosecution, but that’s not the British aim. Rather it is all about smearing the Syrian leadership and distracting the world’s attention from the real issues: which are the criminality of NATO’s war on Syria and the ongoing economic warfare to destroy the nation into submission.

Irish peace activist and author Declan Hayes who has travelled extensively in Syria during the past decade commented: “Britain’s legally ludicrous accusations against Asma al-Assad have a number of objectives in mind. They are there to delegitimize Syria’s 2021 presidential elections; they are there to scare expatriate Syrians and British humanitarians; they are there to deflect from NATO’s well documented war crimes; and they are there to deflect from the mercenary collusion of a cast of media, political and NGO characters in NATO’s war crimes in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen.”

Asma married Bashar in 2000. Before the war erupted in March 2011, she was eulogized in Western media as the “desert rose” owing to her feminine beauty and quietly spoken graceful persona. The daughter of a cardiologist and having had a career in investment banking before she become Syria’s First Lady, Asma al-Assad later showed herself to be no wilting flower. She refused to leave Damascus and go into comfortable exile with her children when the war was raging.

She remained loyally by her husband’s side and took on the role of consoling the nation, often visiting families of slain soldiers and civilian victims of NATO’s terror gangs.

No doubt the stress resulted in Asma suffering from breast cancer for which she was successfully treated in 2018.

President Assad and his wife stood by the Syrian nation when the jaws of defeat were looming during the early years of the war. When Russia intervened in support of its historic ally in October 2015, the tide of the war turned decisively against the NATO plan for regime change. Assad was singled out for regime change because of his anti-imperialist position against the U.S., Britain, France and Israel. His alliance with Russia, Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah put a target on his back for destruction, as former French foreign minister Roland Dumas disclosed. Dumas revealed that the British government had war plans on Syria two years before the violence erupted in March 2011. In this context, the so-called “uprising” was a carefully orchestrated false flag.

The mysterious shootings of police and protesters in the southern city of Daraa – which served to smear the Assad government internationally – were the same modus operandi used by NATO covert forces which carried out the sniper murders in Kiev’s Maidan Square triggering the February 2014 coup d’état in Ukraine.

Western media headlines this week marking the 10th anniversary since the beginning of NATO’s war on Syria have been ghoulish and nauseating.

There is a sense of gloating over the misery and hunger that the nation is facing.

headline in Associated Press labels Syria as the “Republic of Queues”, reporting almost gleefully on how civilians are struggling with food and fuel shortages.

Nowhere in the media coverage is there a mention of how the American CIA and Britain’s MI6 ran Operation Timber Sycamore to arm and direct mercenaries to terrorize Syrians. Absurdly, Western media still claim that Syria’s war rose out of “pro-democracy uprisings” which were crushed by a “ruthless Assad regime”.

Barely acknowledged too is the fact that the United States, Britain and the European Union are strangling a war-torn nation with barbaric sanctions preventing reconstruction. The criminality of economic terrorism is the corollary of a failed criminal covert war of aggression.

The abominable reality of Western policy towards Syria has to be covered up. Threatening Syria’s First Lady – a national heroine – with prosecution for war crimes is NATO powers reaching into the gutter.

موسكو وحزب الله: تثبيت الانتصار السياسي بعد العسكري في سوريا

موسكو وحزب الله: تثبيت الانتصار السياسي بعد العسكري في سوريا

زيارة وفد حزب الله لموسكو ليست «فتحاً مبيناً» ولا بهدف «الضغط على الحزب للانسحاب من سوريا»، إنّما بداية تواصل استراتيجي نابعٌ من أن حزب الله «طرف موثوق وقادر» بالنسبة إلى روسيا

حتى من قبل أن يطأ وفدُ حزب الله أرض مطار شيريميتييفو الدولي في موسكو، استنفرت دبلوماسية العدو الإسرائيلي وأجهزته العسكرية والأمنية، في حملة تقصٍ وتشويشٍ على الزيارة/ الحدث، رافقتها محاولات داخل روسيا للوبي الصهيوني وامتداداته، بهدف عرقلة الزيارة والتخفيف من مفاعيلها. وسريعاً، انتقل وزير الخارجية ورئيس أركان العدو السابق غابي أشكينازي إلى روسيا، للقاء رئيس الدبلوماسية سيرغي لافروف (يوم الأربعاء الماضي)، بعد يومٍ على لقاء لافروف مع وفد حزب الله، الذي ترأّسه رئيس كتلة الوفاء للمقاومة النائب محمّد رعد. زيارة وفد الحزب لموسكو كانت محور الاهتمام في زيارة أشكينازي، الذي على عكس غيره من قادة كيان العدوّ، يبتعد عن خوض انتخابات الكنيست المقبلة، فيما يضع بنيامين نتنياهو مسألة تجيير «الناخبين» من أصل روسي في فلسطين المحتلّة لمصلحته، على رأس جدول أعمال أي زيارة لموسكو.

منذ سنوات، تعمل «إسرائيل» والولايات المتّحدة الأميركية، على عزل حزب الله وشيطنته في الساحة العالميّة، بالعقوبات والحصار والحرب الإعلامية، من أقصى الشرق وأوروبا إلى أميركا اللاتينية. وتحديداً، منذ انفجار 4 آب 2020، ارتفع منسوب الهجوم على حزب الله. لكنّ الحزب، بدل أن ينكفئ، تحوّل إلى قوّة مؤثّرة، وطرفاً في التشاور والتواصل مع القوى الدوليّة. فكان اللقاء مع الرئيس الفرنسي إيمانويل ماكرون، ثمّ تلبية دعوة الدبلوماسية الروسية لزيارة موسكو، بغطاء من الرئيس فلاديمير بوتين.

على لسان الدبلوماسيين الروس، ومصادر مطّلعة على أجواء زيارة موسكو في بيروت، تصنّف الزيارة على قدرٍ عالٍ من الأهميّة، وخطوة أساسية لاتصال استراتيجي دائم في المستقبل. فهي في الشكل والمضمون واللقاءات، التي تنوّعت من لقاء فريق متابعة الشرق الأوسط الذي يقوده نائب لافروف ميخائيل بوغدانوف، يعاونه رئيس دائرة الشرق الأوسط في وزارة الخارجية ألكسندر كينشاك، إلى اللقاءات مع المجلس الفدرالي (مجلس الشيوخ) ولجنة العلاقات الخارجية في مجلس الدوما، حفلت بنقاشات موسّعة خرج بعدها المجتمعون بانطباعات إيجابية.

فمهما يكن ما يُبعد موسكو عن منظّمة عسكرية لا تحمل صفة دولة رسميّة كحزب الله، يكفي العداء الأميركي المتنامي للطرفين، لكي يزيل الحواجز، وأن تتماهى المصالح، ولا سيّما في ظلّ السّلوك الأميركي للإدارة الجديدة.

في موسكو، توصف الروابط الروسية اليوم مع إدارة الرئيس جو بايدن، بأنها «اتصالات الضرورة، لا علاقة طبيعية». بل إن الحذر والتوجّس من السلوك المستقبلي المفترض للديموقراطيين، يبدو طاغياً أكثر بأشواطٍ من «الممارسات المجنونة» للجمهوري دونالد ترامب. وجاء كلام بايدن بحقّ بوتين شخصيّاً، ليؤكّد المخاوف الروسية، من أن الإدارة الجديدة ستفعّل أسلحتها المعتادة، الإرهاب والعقوبات وتفجير الأوضاع في آسيا والبلقان والشرق، لمواجهة روسيا والصين وإيران وسوريا وحزب الله، وكل من يقف في وجه الرغبة الأميركية بقطبية أحاديّة لم تعد تجد مكانها المريح على الخريطة العالميّة.

أكثر من ذلك، يشعر الروس بأن الأميركيين يستعدّون مجدّداً لتسعير الساحات حيث يستطيعون بوجه موسكو كما بوجه بكّين، ويلوّحون لحلفائهم قبل أعدائهم، بالضغوط والتهويل، في أوروبا والخليج، من المستشارة الألمانية إنجيلا ميركل، إلى «الضحية» الأخيرة وليّ العهد السعودي محمد بن سلمان. فالرجل الأميركي المدلّل… يقف قرب المقصلة الأميركية، بانتظار أن يدفع فدية تفوق، أو توازي على الأقل، الفدية التي دفعها لترامب. كلّ هذا الضغط، يشجّع موسكو على توسيع هامش حركتها، مستفيدةً من قدرتها على الاتصال بالجميع، وبكلّ المتحاربين، لتأمين شبكة تواصل إقليمية، تخفّف من عنف التصعيد الأميركي.

حتى المفاوضات الأميركية ــــ الإيرانية المنتظرة، استبقها الإيرانيون برسالة من المرشد الأعلى للثورة الإسلامية علي خامنئي حملها رئيس البرلمان الإيراني محمد باقر قاليباف إلى بوتين، وردّ عليها بوتين بالمثل، وفحواها، أن مجموعة المفاوضات ليست «5 +1» بل «4 + 2»، في تأكيد على التنسيق الروسي ــــ الصيني الكامل، لدعم موقف إيران. وهذا الموقف يحمل في طيّاته تعاوناً اقتصادياً واسعاً، مع القرار الإيراني الضمني، بالتوقّف عن التعويل على سياسة الماضي ببيع الموارد للشرق وشراء السلع من الغرب، والتوجّه نحو تمتين الأسواق مع الشرق، في البيع والشراء.

من هنا، تأتي زيارة حزب الله، تتويجاً لتحوّلات دولية كبيرة، ولتجربة معمّدة بالتعاون في مكافحة الإرهاب طوال سنوات الحرب السوريّة، هذا التعاون بين سوريا وحلفائها الذي أنجز انتصاراً عسكريّاً، وأعاد موسكو بقوّة إلى الساحة الدولية وكسر أحاديّة حكمت العالم منذ انهيار الاتحاد السوفياتي.

يشعر الروس بأن الأميركيين يستعدّون مجدّداً لتسعير الساحات حيث يستطيعون بوجه موسكو وبكّين


«بالنسبة إلى موسكو، حزب الله هو طرف موثوق وقادر»، يقول مصدر وثيق الاطّلاع. أمّا ملفّات البحث، «فتناولت كل ما يخطر على البال من الملفّات المحليّة والإقليمية والدولية، لكن لسوريا الحصّة الأكبر من المناقشات».

في سوريا، تتطابق الرؤية الروسية مع موقف حزب الله، «يجب أن يتمّ تثبيت الانتصار السياسي كما حصل في الانتصار العسكري». وعلى هذا الأساس، فإن البحث في إنجاز أي تسوية سياسية في سوريا لا يتمّ قبل إعادة انتخاب الرئيس بشّار الأسد في الصيف المقبل، ودعم الدولة السورية والشعب السوري في مواجهة «قانون قيصر». وفي معلومات مصدر آخر، فإن موسكو تُعِدّ حزمة مساعدة من المفترض أن تصل تباعاً إلى سوريا من الآن وحتى الانتخابات الرئاسية. أما في ما بعد الانتخابات، «فلا يمكن أن يبقى الوضع على ما هو عليه، لا في إدلب والمناطق التي تحتلّها تركيا ولا في منطقة شرقي الفرات، ولا يمكن أن تبقى أهم الموارد السورية في أيدي قسد والأميركيين». طبعاً، كل الكلام عن رغبة روسية بانسحاب حزب الله من سوريا أكّدت الزيارة أنه وَهْم وتسويق إعلامي غربي وعربي وإسرائيلي ليس أكثر.
كذلك كرّر الروس أمام الوفد سخطهم على الانتهاكات الإسرائيلية للأجواء اللبنانية والاعتداء على سوريا، معتبرين أنها خرقٌ لسيادة دولتين ذات سيادة وأسباب لتوتير الشرق ومنع الاستقرار.

أمّا في لبنان، فنتائج الزيارة ظهرت سريعاً في بيروت، بلقاء السفير الروسي ألكسندر روداكوف بالوزير جبران باسيل، بعد حملة ضغوط وشائعات وضعت العرقلة في ملفّ تأليف الحكومة عند رئيس الجمهورية ميشال عون، ومحاولات تبرئة الرئيس المكلّف سعد الحريري من هذه العراقيل. ولقطع الشكّ باليقين، أصدرت السفارة الروسية أول من أمس بياناً حسمت فيه هذا الجدال، مؤكّدة عدم تدخّل موسكو في التفاصيل الداخلية.

يكفي العداء الأميركي المتنامي لموسكو وحزب الله لكي تزول الحواجز وتتماهى المصالح


ويخشى الروس فعلاً المحاولات الأميركية لزيادة الضغط على لبنان، بهدف تأجيج الاحتجاجات الشعبية وتعميم الفوضى في البلاد، وصولاً إلى إسقاط ما تبقّى من هيكل الدولة، بما يؤثّر عملياً على الساحة السورية ويعيد عقارب الساعة إلى الوراء.


وبدا موقف موسكو وحزب الله مشابهاً، في ما خصّ تكليف الحريري، على اعتبار أن الأخير يشكّل مفتاحاً لمنع المحاولات الأميركية من إعادة التوتّر الشيعي ــــ السّني في لبنان والإقليم، من دون أن يعني ذلك دعم الحريري على حساب عون، أو منحه هامشاً سياسيّاً في الحكومة يستطيع من خلاله تغيير التوازنات الداخلية على حساب حلفاء روسيا. وفيما يُنتظر تحرّك روسيّ فاعل تجاه الأزمة اللبنانية، يتفرّج الروس على المبادرة الفرنسية التي لم تحقّق أي تقدّمٍ حتى الآن، و«يضحكون»…
لم تغب طبعاً ساحات فلسطين والعراق واليمن عن النقاشات، فحيث لا يوجد الروس في مواجهة الأميركيين، يوجد الإيرانيون وحزب الله.

What Is in Store for Iraq and the Broader Middle East?

What Is in Store for Iraq and the Broader Middle East?

Amro Allan, Global Research 14 Mar 2021

It is still early to be certain what strategy the new US administration will adopt in the Levant. Yet the recent actions of the US and its allies can give a good indication of what is in store for the region. Especially when those actions reinforce the validity of some intelligence obtained from a well-informed source, and when they fit the facts on the ground.

For the past ten years, the US and its allies have been engaged in a war against Syria. However, this war did not achieve its main strategic objective. On the contrary, Syria has become involved with the Axis of Resistance more than ever. And despite the pitfalls in some places, and slow achievements in others, the Axis of Resistance has gained more influence in the Levant overall. One aspect of this is that the route from Tehran to Beirut, through Baghdad and Damascus, is solidifying every day. Securing this route can greatly facilitate trade and economic collaboration between those four capitals- something that will enhance the living situation of the people of those countries and fortify their resilience.

The US understands the strategic challenge that this poses to its influence in the Levant and indeed in West Asia in general; as it has been expressed in many pro-US-articles.

A vital result of securing this route is the leverage it provides to the Axis of Resistance to overcome the ‘maximum pressure’ policy which the US has been pursuing of late, not just against Iran, but also against Syria using the ‘Caesar Act’. And because the events of the past few years exposed the unreadiness of the US to engage in an all-out war against Iran and its allies, that leaves the ‘maximum pressure’ policy as the only cost-effective card for the US to play against the Axis of Resistance.

Another result of the events of the last ten years in the Levant is that the Iraqi and Syrian arenas have become more interconnected. Hence, the aftershocks of any change in the political balance in one domain will be felt in the other. And because of the Russian presence in Syria, as well as the strategic alliance between Russia and the Syrian government, the US margin of manoeuvre within Syria is more constrained than it is in Iraq. Thus, it appears that the new strategy of Joe Biden’s administration is to work towards changing the status quo within Iraq to the advantage of the US, through targeted assassinations and special operations. It seems that the end goal is to strengthen the US allies within the Iraqi ruling class, benefiting from the volatile Iraqi political situation, so as to align Iraq with the US stance in the region.

This strategy, if it succeeds, will achieve two objectives for the US: breaking the Baghdad link in the afore-mentioned route chain, and tightening the economic sanctions imposed on Syria. The latter objective can then be used to force the Syrian government to make political concessions in the upcoming presidential elections and in the negotiations with the ‘separatists Kurdish factions’ in the east of the Euphrates, where the Syrian oil and wheat fields lie.

The latest US airstrike on the Iraqi security forces, the ‘Popular Mobilization Forces’ (PMF), is believed to be in this context despite the US pretexted justification. Choosing to bomb a position on the Syrian Iraqi borders and in the vicinity of a vital Syrian Iraqi crossing point cannot be at random.

Another sign of the US intent to change the political balance in Iraq is the recent 

lengthy interview with Raghad Saddam Hussein on the Saudi-owned news channel Al-Arabiya (the Saudis are a strategic US ally). In this interview, she spoke about internal Iraqi affairs, attacked what she called Iranian influence in Iraq, and refused to rule out a possible future role in Iraqi politics.

A well-informed source confirmed the existence of such a plan: ‘The US has put into action a new plan to shift the balance in Iraq to their advantage through targeted assassinations and inciting strife within Iraq. This plan is to be carried out in collaboration with some top positions in the current Iraqi government, and the Iraqi Ba’ath party’ the source added. On this question, it is worth noting the since-retracted statement by Pentagon Press Secretary John F. Kirby that Iraqi authorities helped the US to carry out ‘successful strikes’ on Syria’s territory in February, and in spite of the Iraqi Defence Ministry denying any knowledge of this airstrike beforehand.

If the next few weeks prove this analysis to be true, then it would be logical to assume that the Axis of Resistance will take countermeasures, and this would very likely raise the stakes in an already heightened situation in a volatile region.
