Top Hamas Official: We Must Further Enhance Ties With Iran; Palestinian 'Resistance' Ready to Enter Real Battle With Israel
A top Hamas official called for the bolstering of his group’s ties with Iran and issued a threat to Israel, in an interview with the Islamic Republic’s semi-official state news agency Fars on Monday.
Mahmoud al-Zahar — a co-founder of the Islamic fundamentalist terrorist organization that rules the Gaza Strip — said, “Relations with Iran are acceptable but they should further enhance and develop [and]…if the regime (Israel) is after a new war against the region, (it should know that) the Palestinian resistance, more than what they imagine, is ready to enter a real battle.”
Last month, as reported by The Algemeiner, Mohammad Majedi — a high-ranking Iranian diplomatic official stationed in Beirut — told Hamas’ envoy to Lebanon Ali Baraka that Tehran would continue to support “the Palestinian nation, the resistance groups and Palestine’s Intifada against Israel’s occupation.”
Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds force, was quoted as saying in March...Hamas and Iran have the desire for a strong uprising in Palestine and confrontation against Israeli aggression. It is imperative to create a new basis for our relations.”
Soleimani continued: “Over the past few years, many mistakes were made, some on the part of Hamas and some on Iran’s part. Nevertheless, we both know that the resistance is in danger, and we know that the only country that can support Palestinian resistance is Iran.”
Just this week, as a result of Obama’s unsubstantiated claim about the Russians allegedly hacking the American electoral process and the DNC, Putin signaled he’s had ENOUGH of Obama’s nonsense. In response to the accusation, the Russians have deployed nuclear missiles into Kaliningrad, along the border with Poland, and they are aimed directly at Berlin.
It is now evident from world leaders and our own councils that the administration has been directly responsible for toppling nations, creating and funding ISIS terror organizations and destabilizing the middle east. It is now clear that Hillary Rodham Clinton was one of the architects of the Arab Spring and an accomplice in international war crimes.
Russia has had enough and their patience has worn thin waiting to see when and if America acts on ridding their government of its warmongers in the wake of the U.S, airstrikes on Aleppo in Syria.
What can Americans do to stop the misuse of executive powers of the Obama administration when the congress and senate are turning a blind eye on the matter? These are premeditated criminal acts of war that have already taken place. Not just some back room plans that were found out before any harm was done. This is very serious.
Americans have been lied to about the entire war on terrorism and fed false news propaganda about the Syrian government to justify war with Syria. The entire Arab spring leading to deceitful nation toppling were Obama and Hillary led.
As the U.S. and Russia accused each other of sinking diplomacy, Moscow increased its military presence in the Mediterranean and Baltic regions, and suspended a nuclear non-proliferation treaty. A prime-time news program warned that the U.S. wants to provoke a conflict.
“Offensive behavior toward Russia has a nuclear dimension,” Russian state TV presenter Dmitry Kiselyov said in his “Vesti Nedelyi” program on Sunday. “Moscow would react with nerves of iron to a Plan B,” he said, referring to any possible U.S. military strike in Syria.
The rise in tensions could lead to new sanctions against the Kremlin, which some members of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s party have sought to penalize Moscow over Syria. It risks blowing off course efforts to resolve the conflict in Ukraine, which provoked the worst standoff since the Cold War after Putin annexed Crimea and backed pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine.
After a strike by the U.S.-led coalition on a Syrian army base last month that the Pentagon said was a mistake killed dozens of soldiers, Russia’s defense ministry said it won’t allow a repetition. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in an interview with state-run Channel One broadcast Sunday said Russian defenses can protect the Syrian army from any U.S. attack and warned the American military to desist from “dangerous games.”
The second largest US-backed rebel group Ahrar al-Sham reworked their agreement with al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front which absorbed a major Daesh (ISIS) offshoot Jund al-Aqsa on Sunday.
The cooperation deal places Washington in a troubling predicament with the Obama White House continuing to provide aid and support to Ahrar al-Sham which fights now with both al-Qaeda and an offshoot of Daesh (ISIS) under the umbrella organization The Army of Conquest undermining the United States claim to moral superiority in dealing with the Syrian theater with the US now aligned directly behind the terrorists that they claim to be fighting against.
Russia counters that the ceasefire deal fell apart as a result of the US-led coalition airstrike on a Syrian Army base in Deir Ez-Zor that resulted in the death of at least 82 soldiers and paved the way for a major Daesh (ISIS) advance and as a result of the over 300 ceasefire violations by the so-called moderate rebels who intensified their violence against the Syrian Army at a time when peace had been called.
