New pact restores Hamas to the Iranian fold

Posted by seumasach on May 23, 2014

Before clinching the deal, Iran required Meshaal to publicly endorse Iran’s policy in Syria and his support for Bashar Assad.

The Hamas politburo chief accordingly stated in Doha Thursday night that he “welcomed the position of Tehran toward Syria,” adding: “We will never forget Syrian President Bashar Al- Assad’s support for the Palestinian nation.”

The Palestinian Hamas terrorist group has been restored to the Iranian fold and won the promise of an annual allowance of $200 million per year, military assistance and advanced weapons on a par with the hardware supplied to Jihad Islami. DEBKAfile’s sources report that this deal was secretly sealed in Doha on Thursday, May 22, at a meeting between Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and Hamas’s politburo head Khaled Mashaal.

Objetivos del viaje de Meshal a Gaza

Resistencia Libia

9th December, 2012

Un día antes de salir para Gaza vía Egipto con apoyo del tambaleante gobierno integrista de Morsi, el jefe del buró político del partido integrista Hamas Jaled Meshal se ha reunido con su jefe político y financiero y anfitrión, el jeque qatarí Al Tani para fijar los objetivos de su viaje. Al Tani ha ordenado a Meshal que recupere el control sobre la parte de Hamas partidaria de integrar el frente de la resistencia junto a Siria y Hezbollah, que disuelva el brazo armado de Hamas, que organice la reconciliación política con los corruptos de Al Fatah y de la Autoridad Nacional Palestina, que ofrezca secretamente a Israel todo tipo de acuerdos aunque en público denuncie a la entidad sionista y que contribuya al esfuerzo de guerra del frente imperialista contra Siria.

The thesis was just about gaining ground that the bitter legacy of the Arab spring is going to be the reawakening of the rough beast of sectarianism in the Muslim Middle East. Sectarian strife, it was prophesied, would lead to a Sunni-Shi’ite confrontation involving Saudi Arabia and Iran.

‘ME awakening yields Palestine unity’

Posted by seumasach on May 1, 2011


1st May, 2011

A senior Iranian official says the recent unity agreement between the two Palestinian main factions, Fatah and Hamas, is the result of Islamic awakening in the Arab world.

“Unity between the two Palestinian movements, Fatah and Hamas, to achieve national reconciliation and form a Palestinian government is one of the most significant consequences of the Islamic awakening in the region (Middle East and North Africa),” Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council Mohsen Rezaei told IRNA on Sunday.

The Iranian official predicted more of such developments in the region as a result of the Islamic awakening.

On April 27, the Palestinian factions issued a statement, saying they had reached an “understanding” in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, to set up a transitional unity government and hold elections.

On the future of Iran-Egypt ties, Rezaei made a reference to the willingness among the both countries’ officials to expand mutual ties, describing the prospect as “promising.”

Elsewhere in his remarks, Rezaei discounted the possibility of the West’s and NATO’s success in their attempts to disintegrate Libya.

The senior Iranian official, however, warned that in case the oil-rich part of Libya is separated, the other parts of the country will be almost a barren desert where poverty will severely harm the people.

In recent months, a wave of revolutions and anti-government uprisings has swept the Arab world.

In January, a revolution in Tunisia ended the 23-year ruling of former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.

In February, another revolution led to the ouster of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak after three decades of authoritarian rule.

Other revolutions have erupted in Libya, Yemen and Bahrain, while more anti-government upheavals have swept Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, Kuwait and Algeria.

Meanwhile, more Arab countries are expected to witness similar revolts.
