Top international adviser to #Iran's SP Ali Akbar Velayati speaking @ValdaiClub now:says term #MiddleEast is British concept, he'd rather use West Asia/North Africa,argues due to #US influence some countries seek to play greater regional role (than they can)
Velayati:*throughout history external powers sought to dominate Mideast, #US no exception here, #Libya, #Somalia brought manifestations of western FP,#Trump seeks to undermine region,he wants to partition #Syria as they did w/ 🇱🇾 & #Iraq - bith once big, important states
Velayati: New element is after Islamic Revolution #Iran able to conduct policies independent of Western states, this is real reason why #US seeks to counter IRN.But if ot were not for #Russia & IRN, Leader of Nusra would be ruling today in #Damascus, head of #ISIS-in #Baghdad.
The need for our new report and recommendations therein is best summed up two maps indicating today's developments in #Syria:
It's a few hours after Putin & Netanyahu met in #Moscow to discuss the removal of #Iran from #Syria. #Israel responded to the UAV that crossed into its airspace from Syria with strikes at 3 military posts near its border.
1-The #Awan Brothers.
I haven’t followed the story closely, so I am no expert in the matter. I am just going to give you the highlights along with some sources of information for you to investigate.
But here is what I have:
2-Four brothers: Abid, Jamal, Rao and Imran Awan performed IT for the members of the House of Representatives & were abruptly fired on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission. Hina Alvi, Imram Awan’s wife is also involved &likely a second wife too
3-According to various sources, they stole a bunch of equipment, which is the least of the problem. They have access to a lot of classified information, including war on terrorism and what not. What did they do with that information?
Time has come for the serious confrontation with #ISIS "soldiers of the Caliphate" in Quneitra (Jaish Khaled bin al Waleed) bordering the occupied Golan heights as the Syrian Army, Hezbollah & allies reached the territory occupied by the group as part of south #Syria liberation.
#Damascus soldiers & allies are aware of the necessity of this inevitable battle that is supposed to begin as soon as the preparation of attack from different fronts is completed. This can be achieved when more territories under Nusra and FSA are cleared.
The Syrian Army agreed with the Russian suggesting to ship all Syrians refusing to reconcile with the government to #Idlib: green busses (or whatever colour it is going to be) are prepared to go to #Daraa#Syria.
Over 100 busses are reaching #Daraa to carry over 1500 Jabhat al-Nusra aka Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and their families who rather stay under Turkish control the north of #Syria.
The #Damascus-Amman road is clear and safe now and Naseeb crossing is expected to reopen soon.
Syrian Army is clearing up east of #Daraa where the Russian Military police is tasking position.
The enormous quantity of weapons recovered by the Syrian army is filling up the army's warehouses, thanks to Arab and the west generous donations to Jihadists
George Bush called for the bombing of #US as The US Harbors violent #terrorists regarded by #FBI & Justice Department as Terrorists such as Orlando Busch, an anti #Cuban terrorist accused by FBI of 30 acts of terrorism such as blowing up of the Cubana Airline killing 73 people
If the #USA is worried about south #Syria ops it means the establishment is afraid of #SAA's success. Obviously, #SAA took eastern Ghouta with 35K jihadists and the south today has with 20k-25k jihadists & FSA and the geography is much easier.
Actually, the #USA has nothing to do in the south of #Syria. the area is not part of US national security nor it affects #US citizens or interest. It is #Israel that is extremely worried about #SAA regaining demarcation line with #IDF.
#Israel is aware #SAA and its #NDF have gained enough experience and is afraid the long 30-40 years of "peace on the borders" is over: #Damascus next step after the war will be the #GolanHeights, an area rich of oil and exploited by #US companies.
Yesterday late afternoon #Russia/n forces took 3 positions in Qusseyr and Juseh and established checkpoints. #Hezbollah, not informed of the Russian presence, came close to these forces and asked their immediate pull out+
Following the direct intervention of President Bashar al-Assad, the Russian force pulled out this morning and avoided any clash with #Hezbollah in the area.
hezbollah maantin and kept all positions. The #Russia/n move was not coordinated.+
Some quick thoughts: It looks like #Israel initiated military activity against Syrian regime and Iranian assets in Syria last night in order to take advantage of favorable political situation in aftermath of #Trump's withdrawal from #IranDeal, and also... /2
/2 to draw a red line against #Iran/#Hezbollah moves southward toward #GolanHeights now that regime has completed takeover of most Damascus suburbs, freeing up forces. Yet the Iranians don't seem to be responding, Israeli claims to the contrary - .../3
3/ or at least not with the ferocity that would enable an even stronger Israeli riposte. Moreover, Israel is constrained by #Russia's two principal red lines: Syrian regime preservation, and no harm to Russian assets and personnel..../4
Wow! I am watching @almanarnews discussing the parliamentary elections and they have shown videos in some voting locations of #Hariri men distributing money to voters waiting to vote. #lebanonelections2018
However, preliminary indications are that the candidate challenging #Hariri in his home turf #Saida, Ousama Saad, will be elected.
Polls will close in 4' in #Lebanon, the access to vote has been slow, news anchors are calling on voters to enter voting locations, even if it means they will be packed to earn the right to vote after 7 p.m. local because there will be no extension. #lebanonelections2018
This thread relates to recent #Q posts and gives a big-picture explanation of the massive #Treason that #POTUS and #WhiteHats have been fighting. This almost led to a military #Coup against #Traitor44's regime.
Graphic below acts as a map to clarify key elements.
2/ Many of the crucial components of the #Treason are contained w/in the "Shell Game" report compiled by #Patriot#ScottBennett. This was recently publicized on the internet, explained in this thread:
BREAKING: The White House has said that US President #Trump is canceling his upcoming South America trip to remain in the US "to oversee the American response to Syria." - @NBCNews
This sounds like the US is planning to strike #Syria and Trump will remain in the US to closely monitor responses by #Russia. This is terrible.
BREAKING - British forces are now mobilizing at their bases in #Cyprus for strikes against #Syria. It appears very likely that the US, France and U.K. will strike Syria in the next 24 hours. This is dreadful.
#Israel jets flew over Ghazeer (#Lebanon) at a very low altitude to avoid #Russia/n radars in an area where topography allows jets to hide. Inhabitants were terrified by the sound. Jets took altitude in the Bekaa for 3-4 minutes and launched its missiles+
#Russia imposed on #Israel to notify its Air movement over #Syria and the course of its jets if ever willing to enter the Syrian airspace. Israel believed Russia is informing Damascus to be prepared when knowledgeable about an Israeli violation.+
A recent Pew poll indicates a staggering divergence in views on #Israel vs the Arabs of Palestine between Republicans and Democrats in America. Increasingly, Israel is becoming a one-party, Republican, issue. How and why did this happen? THREAD city-journal.org/html/israel-pa…
The largely Democratic American Jewish political establishment argues the Trump admin through its #Jerusalem capital recognition/embassy move decisions and beyond are cynically acting as staunchly pro-#Israel, "politicizing" the issue. Pew says otherwise city-journal.org/html/israel-pa…
According to the Pew poll on American views on #Israel vs. Arabs of Palestine, not just conservatives, but every group of American voters surveyed supports Israel over the Palestinians by a wide margin—with the single exception of “liberal Democrats.” city-journal.org/html/israel-pa…
#Breakingnews: #Hezbollah Nasrallah said: "If the Lebanese authority decides the #Israeli oil platform should stop working, in few hours these will be neutralised" (by Hezbollah anti-ship missiles).
The reason why #Hezbollah launched his menace to #Israel is due to #USA Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, David Satterfield (visiting #Lebanon) who threatened the Lebanese authority about preventing #Lebanon from exploring their oil
#USA Assistant Secretary David Satterfield said in closed doors to the Lebanese authorities:"If you don't give up of 860 sqkm of your territorial water to #Israel we won't allow you to exploit your oil in block 9" #Hezbollah answered the #USA and #Israel today, through Nasrallah.
