Israel Iran War Certain Under the Trump Administration?

Published

on

Is Israel Iran War on Cards? Firstly, the UN fears the consequences of the closure of the representation of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in the United States. This was announced on Monday, November 20, by the special coordinator of the Middle East peace process Nikolay Mladenov at a meeting of the Security Council of the world organization, AFP reported.

“I am concerned about the consequences of recent developments concerning the PLO office in the United States. We can hope for the advancement of the world only with the continuation of constructive dialogue, and I urge all parties to remain, participants of peace efforts, “Mladenov said.

He expressed hope for the success of “critical” talks between the Palestinian movements of Fatah and Hamas, which will begin on Tuesday in Cairo. The emissary urged their leaders to “seize this opportunity and open a new page” in their history, starting with the achievement of a “comprehensive agreement”.

November 18, it became known that the US State Department did not extend the work permit for the PLO office after the Palestinians tried to appeal to the International Criminal Court (ICC) with accusations against the Israeli authorities. Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki said on Sunday that closing the PLO in the US would harm the Middle East peace process and Washington’s role in it.

Nikolay Mladenov thanked Egypt for efforts to reconcile the Palestinians, which, he said, is an indispensable condition for the settlement of the conflict. According to him, “many attempts” to overcome the split between the Palestinian factions have failed in recent years. Mladenov expressed the hope that the initiative of Cairo will be successful. “We can not allow these efforts to become a missed opportunity,” said the coordinator of the Middle East process. Mladenov noted that “from the very beginning” he interacted with the Egyptian authorities, the Palestinian National Authority (PNA), regional and international players. “Everyone understands that under the current conditions, failure will destroy the hope for reconciliation in the near future,” he added. Mladenov welcomed the return of the PNA to the Gaza Strip and the restoration of control over the checkpoints leading to the enclave.

Mladenov urged the Palestinian leaders to immediately tackle the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. “After several years of blockade, the situation in the enclave is close to exploding,” the special coordinator for the Middle East process stressed.

Israel Iran War: How Israel’s Saved the World by Attacking Iraq’s Nuclear Reactors?

As history does not stop, new wars continue to ripen. And in view of the existence of nuclear weapons in nature, they threaten the world with catastrophic consequences. The Western world realized with a great delay that it was rescued by Israel, which bombed on June 7, 1981, Iraqi nuclear reactor Osirak, which was on the verge of launch. This reactor, designed for the production of plutonium, was created by Saddam Hussein in France. According to Soviet experts, in the presence of specialists with the help of this reactor, Iraq in 1983 could produce 3 atomic bombs, and in 1985 – 5 bombs. The UN Security Council condemned Israel for aggression, and Ronald Reagan imposed sanctions on Israel, stopping the delivery of weapons.

Israel repeated this operation on September 5, 2007 – against the Syrian nuclear reactor in Deer A-Zur. This reactor was made by North Korean specialists.

The history of the North Korean atomic bomb is a drama of modern non-resolution under the guise of the peacefulness of mature conflicts. The nuclear program of the DPRK was created by the USSR, later China provided assistance. The issue of the North Korean bomb became actual, unfortunately, in Bill Clinton’s cadence  – in 1993. On the instructions of Clinton, Assistant Secretary of State Wendy Sherman discussed with the PRC an agreement under which America generously offered four billion to the North Koreans for not going ahead with the bomb. Similarly, Clinton reacted to the threat to America from terrorism. He could have eliminated bin Laden and beheaded Al-Qaeda, but three times he canceled the prepared operations to destroy the head of terrorists. The inevitable act of terrorism happened, but already in the cadence of Bush Jr. Who will remember that the blame for 9/11 is borne by the peace-loving Clinton?

Israel Iran War: Can Israel Destroy Iran’s Nuclear Reactors?

Iran’s nuclear program is widely believed to target and destroy Israel, which the Iranian mullahs also called the first target of their bomb. But Obama used all the power of the US intelligence and political apparatus to prevent an Israeli attack and allow Iran to build nuclear weapons. Many experts also suggested that Americans would shot down Israeli aircraft if they went on a military mission against Iranian targets.

Iran – Saudi Arabia: Volcanoes of Confrontation

In January 2017, Donald Trump, having taken the most responsible post in the world, inherited from the indecisive Clinton and pro-Islamist Obama a world fraught with serious problems. He tries to extinguish the North Korean threat by painting retribution that can bring down on Kim’s fiefdom, and at the same time with the mouth of his secretary of the state offering Kim rewards for acceptable behavior. Since the vital activity of North Korea depends on its patron of China, the US president also included the North Korean issue in the context of US-China relations.

Iran’s Obsession over the Middle-East may Trigger Israel Iran War

Iran controls Iraq, Syria, through its client Hezbollah Lebanon, supports Hamas. Armed with Iran, the tribes defeat the Saudi allies in the civil war raging in strategically important Yemen.

Iranian ballistic missiles now have a radius of more than two thousand kilometers, covering most of Europe. As for the atomic bomb, the question is only this: Has Iran already secretly created it, or will it be ready when it decides to do so?

How are Western countries preparing for a new reality in which an aggressive power with the program of Islamization of the world will have nuclear weapons, suitable, at least, for their blackmail? Europeans have learned a method of communicating with such troubles in ostriches, hiding when approaching danger, head into the sand. This method they have already used in a clash with Hitlerism. While willingly concluding economic deals with Iran, the Europeans in every possible way enliven the Iranian economy.

US and Trump are our ‘Number one Enemy’: Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

President Trump refused on September 15 to certify Iran’s compliance with Obama’s “shameful” agreement as violating the spirit of this treaty. Iran’s full support for terrorism, Trump suggests, was not envisaged by the treaty. The US Senate is invited to develop and adopt new sanctions against the main sponsor of terrorism in the world. However, it is not clear whether other American politicians will support the president. So, his rival in the last election Hillary Clinton stated: “Trump’s threat to deny the certification of the 2015 agreement with Iran makes us look small and stupid, and plays into Iran’s hands …” To say such a profound nonsense is the professional skill of politicians. But even the Minister of Defense and the Chief of Staff in the Trump administration do not sound completely in tune with their boss.

US-North Korea: How will North Korea React to US Invasion?

Perhaps, Israel will have to save itself from the Iranian atomic bomb alone. Learning during the years of the Holocaust, as well as in times of hard battles for the survival of the Arab aggressors, the price of solidarity of the civilized world, the Jews understand that it is better to rely on oneself. I am not familiar with the plans of the Israeli General Staff, but the Iranians should alert the importunate reports of the Israelis about the submarines of the class “Dolphin” they acquired from Germany.  Israel also bluntly stated that for them countering Iran is their topmost priority, which has openly declared its goal to destroy the “Zionist entity”. With these open threats from Iran, and subsequent backing from Saudi Arabia and the US, the world may see an Israel Iran War during the Trump administration.

US threatens Russia with consequences for paying bounties to Taliban in Afghanistan

Published

on

The US has threatened to respond if the Pentagon confirms reports of Russian bounties to kill US soldiers in Afghanistan. While Russia denies its involvement in any such operation, US-Russia relations could further deteriorate if the reports are confirmed.

The Pentagon is investigating reports of Russian bounties to kill US soldiers in Afghanistan and if found to be true, the US has promised to retaliate. Moscow on the hand has denied involvement in any such operation.

Speaking in front of the House armed services committee, General Mark Milley, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff said that the Pentagon was committed to discovering whether Russian military intelligence had paid the Taliban for attacks on American soldiers in Afghanistan.

“We’re going to get to the bottom of this bounty thing. If there are bounties, I’m an outraged general, just like every one of us in uniform is,” Milley said. “That’s a real big deal. We don’t have that level of fidelity yet, but we’re still looking.”

Despite vowing to retaliate, Milley suggested that the US may not be responding to the reports as robustly as necessary in non-military ways. The 62-year old admitted that the US was perhaps not doing enough.

The issue is at the strategic level,” he said. “Is there diplomatic, and informational and economic … sanctions, are there démarches, are there phone calls, is there pressure, those sorts of things. And I can tell you that some of that is done.’’

Mark Esper, the defence secretary, was also testifying to the House armed services committee. Esper said that the reports did not come from any of the nine of the total of 17 US intelligence agencies under Pentagon’s authority, implying the information leaked to the press in recent weeks came from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) or another civilian agency.

The reports first came to notice in January and were ignored because they lacked credibility. It was only in February that Gen Kenneth McKenzie and the defence secretary became aware of them in February.

Milley confirmed that the investigation is not over and promised to get to the bottom of the situation. President Donald Trump has insisted he was not briefed on the Russian bounties.

Russia Denies Involvement

While American intelligence agencies work to confirm reports, Russia denies the existence or its involvement in any such operation. Moscow says the U.S. is trying to portray Moscow as an all-purpose bogeyman.

“I would like to say officially that these allegations, distributed by the media, are downright lies. No concrete evidence has been presented,” Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Anatoly Antonov, said this week in an online forum with the Center for the National Interest.

Other Russian officials point out that Moscow would have little incentive to establish such a program given the high risk of getting caught.

According to NPR, the Russian military intelligence known as the GRU is believed to be behind the suspected Russian bounty program in Afghanistan. The GRU has an aggressive and high-risk culture and is hence preferred by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The New York Times was the media outlet to report about Russia secretly offering money to the Taliban in exchange for killing American soldiers in Afghanistan.

If confirmed, it would be the first time the Russian spy unit was known to have orchestrated attacks on Western troops and could have a severe impact on Washington-Moscow relations.

Srebrenica genocide: Pakistan draws similarity between 1995 Srebrenica massacre with Kashmir

Drawing a parallel between Srebrenica genocide, and the current situation in Indian-administered Kashmir, Khan said he feared a massacre similar to that in Srebrenica could happen in the disputed Himalayan valley.

on

Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan on Saturday urged the world community to “learn a lesson” from 1995 Srebrenica genocide, and “not let such massacre happen again.”

“Today, we are observing the 25th memorial anniversary of the genocide that took place in Srebrenica. I still remember the day very well along with most people who have humanity in their hearts. I remember when it happened. we were shocked. We were appalled how in a what was a safe haven of United Nations peacekeeping forces, this massive massacre was allowed to happen.

“I still feel the shock how such a thing could have been allowed by the world community, Khan said in a video message aired by state-run Pakistan Television. “I think, It is important that we learn lessons from that, the world community must never let such things to happen again,” he went on to say.

Drawing a parallel between Srebrenica genocide, and the current situation in Indian-administered Kashmir, Khan said he feared a massacre similar to that in Srebrenica could happen in the disputed Himalayan valley.

“Today, 800,000 Indian troops have besieged 8 million people of Kashmir. And we all fear a similar sort of massacre might follow there,” he said, adding: “So the world community must take notice, and never allow such acts to take place there.”

Kashmir and Palestine

In a Twitter post, in connection with the 25th anniversary of Srebrenica massacre, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said: “July 2020 marks 25 years since the Srebrenica Massacre, the murder of over 8000 Bosnian Muslims & ethnic cleansing of over 20’000 people. The world has a collective responsibility to ensure history is not repeated.”

“What is happening in Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir and Palestine is chillingly similar,” he added, referring to Israel’s plans to annex parts of the occupied West Bank and New Delhi’s scrapping of Jammu and Kashmir’s longstanding special status in August 2019.

Every year on July 11, newly identified victims of the genocide are buried in a memorial cemetery in Potocari, eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina. Thousands of visitors from various countries attend the funeral services and burials.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will participate in this year’s memorial program via video link. During a two-day visit to Bosnia’s capital Sarajevo last year for a similar event, Erdogan attended a procession to commemorate thousands of innocents who fell victim to the genocide.

More than 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed when Bosnian Serb forces attacked the UN “safe area” of Srebrenica in July 1995, despite the presence of Dutch troops tasked with acting as international peacekeepers.

Srebrenica was besieged by Serb forces who were trying to wrest territory from Bosnian Muslims and Croats to form their own state.

The UN Security Council had declared Srebrenica a “safe area” in the spring of 1993. However, Serb troops led by General Ratko Mladic — later found guilty of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide — overran the UN zone.

The Dutch troops failed to act as Serb forces occupied the area, killing about 2,000 men and boys on July 11 alone. Some 15,000 Srebrenica residents fled into the surrounding mountains, but Serb troops hunted down and killed 6,000 of them in the forests.

UK ‘stands with’ all feeling Srebrenica genocide pain

British administration on Saturday “reiterated the UK’s commitment to supporting reconciliation across the Western Balkans,” on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“Today (11 July) marks twenty-five years since the Srebrenica genocide in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the worst atrocity in Europe since the end of the Second World War,” a Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) statement said.

“Today I stand with all who continue to feel unimaginable pain from the genocide 25 years ago at Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina,” Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said on Twitter.

“The United Kingdom has worked to support justice for the victims, find the missing & promote reconciliation,” he added.

Underlining that more than 8,000, mostly Muslim men and boys, were murdered and over 20,000 women and children were forcibly expelled from their homes, the UK urged “all parties to reject hate speech and the glorification of the perpetrators of genocide and war crimes.”

The statement also said the “verdicts from international and domestic courts must be respected.” Raab said: “On the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, we remember the victims and the anguish of their families.

“During my time in the Hague between 2003 and 2006, pursuing those responsible for this dark chapter in European history, I was reminded daily of the heinous cruelty perpetrated against the innocent.

“The UK is determined to end impunity and help rebuild those countries affected – as our commitment to the ICC, and UK investment and support for Bosnia demonstrates.”

Turkey pays homage

he Turkish president on Saturday remembered the Srebrenica martyrs on the 25th anniversary of the genocide. “We will always stand by our Bosnian brothers in their search for justice. The Srebrenica Genocide will never be forgotten,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a video message.

As part of the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide, Erdogan spoke via video link at the memorial ceremony held at the former accumulator factory used by the United Nations troops as a base in the war in Bosnia.

Erdogan stressed that despite all tragedy and tears, European politicians have learned no lessons from Srebrenica Genocide, adding that free use of words that “fuel enmity towards Islam and support xenophobia is a source of concern for our future.”

“Even though it has been a quarter of a century since the genocide, our pain is still fresh. Our hearts wrenched with every mass grave unearthed,” he said. Erdogan wished God’s mercy on Srebrenica martyrs and patience to their families, their loved ones and to all who feel pain in their hearts.
