    Political Analysis - Outlook on US Policy and Some of the Region’s Issues

    1 – Prior to attempting to perceive what is occurring in the region, it is imperative to recognize that the unfolding events are occurring according to the comprehensive Greater Middle East Initiative (GMEI) announced in 2004 at the G8 Summit; the execution of this initiative passes through phases fraught with deception, aberration, political manipulation and horse changing in midstream; the phases of execution are subject to the reality and latest developments on the ground; some aims are declared and others remain secret even to the functional states and the tools of execution; all the states and regimes of the region are involved in the initiative and at the same time targeted by it. The centre of attention of the executive tools is seeking the pleasure of America and salvation from the fallout of the GMEI on their future; hence, they execute their roles with extreme suspicion and caution and they often stray from the path when their fate is undermined. They jostle with each other, befriend and estrange each other and establish their alliances in line with what achieves America’s interests while keeping emergency channels and escape routes available. This is evidently reflected in the frequent unpredictability of the regimes, politicians, parties and factions.

    Political Observation - The Battles of Aden and the American U-turn on Legitimacy

    Aden was the site of violent confrontations between the presidential protection brigades loyal to the "legitimate government" and the forces of the "security belt" of the Southern Transitional Council that calls for the secession of southern Yemen.
    These clashes took place while the Arab Coalition stood by silently watching which indicates that the so-called coalition is an accomplice and a partner in the ongoing events and confrontations in Aden. The Arab Coalition is an American tool in the scheme of separating southern Yemen by enabling the forces of the Southern Transitional Council, established and supervised by the United Arab Emirates, to assert its complete control over the remaining parts of Aden, especially the region of Kraytar (central Aden), in addition to the northern and eastern parts of the city under the authority of the "legitimate government".

    Political Observation - The Egyptian Elections

    I- Egyptian Elections and Sami Anan’s Candidacy

    At the end of the Tale of a Homeland conference on Friday evening, January 19th, al-Sisi, somewhat agitated, said: "Be wary of me, you the corrupt, if you go near this chair [of the presidency] … I would stop the corrupt from taking power if I could … and I know the corrupt ones, I know them very well indeed ".

    The masses have been removed from the equation of government. The competitors with a strong popular backing such as the Muslim Brotherhood have been quashed from the Egyptian political scene ever since the Muslim Brotherhood allowed their opponents to stay in power during the transition period and during their term of office instead of purging the state apparatus from the plague of agents and the corrupt clique. Then the Muslim Brotherhood erred again when they went into politics observing the standards of the international order, the American volition and the rules of democracy. This opened the floodgates for the traitorous secular political milieu, hired media and sellouts from the military leadership to reshape, reformat and fortify the system. Adding insult to injury was the marginalisation of the masses after the ouster of Mubarak and the confinement of the Muslim Brotherhood's function to street demonstrations, which were harmless to the state institutions. This gave the criminal Abdul Fattah al-Sisi and his gang the chance to strike them and their popular bases down as if sacrifice and catching bullets bare-chested are an end in themselves.

    The Turkish Attack on Afrin followed by Manbij

    The tension between Erdogan and the United States reached a new high after the latter announced its intent to establish a 30 thousand strong Kurdish army, citing the fight against ISIS as a justification for the decision. As it is widely known, the United States seeks to establish a Kurdish entity along the border of Turkey, the aim of which is tearing the countries of the region apart including Turkey, as well as consolidating its presence and military bases to protect its interests, specifically with regards to control of Syria's oil in the eastern region and to ensure a purely American-dominated century.

    Political Observation - Tunisia’s Protests Against Finance Law

    Tunisia has been living under the spectre of intermittent mass protests against the 2018 finance law. These moves were accompanied by a flurry of robberies and pillaging of public and privates property in addition to a series of arson attacks against police stations and local council buildings in some cities. The slogans hoisted during the protests and the ensuing acts of sabotage led to pointing the finger at the Popular Front in which the communist movement is deemed as its backbone. These accusations were lodged by the two main components of the Tunisian government, namely al-Nahda Movement and the Nida Tunis Party. Al-Nahda issued a communiqué on 4 January 2018 condemning the “repeated calls of some political groups” urging the citizens to “stage a host of protests to impose a suspension of the enactment of the new finance law and plunge the country in a state of chaos.”

  • Political Observation - Protests in Iran

    Political Observation - Protests in Iran

    It has been a week since protests broke out in many Iranian cities, namely Tehran and provincial cities such as Mashhad, Kermanshah, and Nishapur. These demonstrations were spurred by harsh living conditions such as extreme poverty, unemployment (nearly 3.5 million jobless), high prices, inflation and tax increases. Perhaps, what distinguishes these protests, in particular, is that they began over economic grievances but soon took on a political dimension rejecting Iran's regional policies in Syria, Lebanon, and Gaza.

    At first, slogans raised by protesters read "Death to the dictator!" and "Death to Rouhani" in reference to the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani who failed to achieve his campaign promises to eliminate unemployment and poverty in a country considered the second largest oil exporter after Saudi Arabia and the second largest gas exporter after Russia. Moreover, the frozen funds recovered by the Iranian government as a result of the nuclear agreement have had no effect on job creation for the unemployed, improving the standard of living for the poor nor investing in health and infrastructure projects in a country where half of its population lives below the poverty line. However, it appears to have been spent financing Iran's regional meddling. The politicized Iranian opposition at home and abroad exploited these events and took an active part in the demonstrations.

    Thus, one may ask these questions: Does America have a hand in these protests? Will these demonstrations continue and become a popular uprising that will bring down the current regime or change it? Is Iran on the verge of an American Spring? The US has demonstrated its public support for the protests since the beginning through statements issued by the State Department declaring that “the United States strongly condemns the arrest of peaceful protesters”. With regards to the White House, President Trump tweeted on December 28th, 2017 the following: “Many reports of peaceful protests by Iranian citizens fed up with regime’s corruption & its squandering of the nation’s wealth to fund terrorism abroad. Iranian govt should respect their people’s rights, including the right to express themselves. The world is watching!” In another tweet on December 31st, 2017, he wrote “…the wealth of Iran is being looted. TIME FOR CHANGE!"

    In line with the new US strategy towards Iran, America’s support for these demonstrations goes beyond political and media support. It entails supporting the popular movement in order to bring it to the stage of reformatting the regime by relying on internal forces that demand change. And this is what the US secretary of State said in a congressional hearing on the 15th of last June stating: “Our policy towards Iran is to […] work towards support of those elements inside of Iran that would lead to a peaceful transition of that government.”

    The appointment of CIA chief Michael D’Andrea, known as "Ayatollah Mike", to head the agency's Iran Mission Center may mean that US President, Donald Trump, is leaning towards a policy of changing the regime in Iran by focusing on intelligence and logistical efforts to cooperate with opponents inside Iran and abroad. These demonstrations will only continue if they turn into an organised public force with clear political demands adopted by political forces at home and supported by one of the arms of the military or security forces in the state apparatus. Thus, the goal of these political forces is to establish a new Iranian Republic or at least transform the role of the clergy into a spiritual one and give broader powers to the head of state. And despite indicators that support this prospect such as protests spreading to many Iranian cities and talk about small splits in the army and the Basij forces, there is currently no political or military party able to pursue this option and ready to take over or lead the process of a change in leadership.

    It is more likely that the regime will adopt new reforms in response to the popular movement, thus dividing these demonstrations and preventing the political opposition forces from turning them into a political uprising that is easy to direct towards America’s goals. But in parallel with this patchwork of reforms, the security and military forces will crack down on the leaders of these protests and conduct a large wave of arrests that should paralyze the demonstrations or limit their impact and reach. Choosing the second option, the Iranian regime played the cards of foreign meddling and American conspiracy against Iran as a means of distorting the demands of the protests and preventing them from taking a political dimension in relation to foreign agendas. With the exception of the PMOI and some supporters of the monarchy, no political party inside Iran has clearly adopted these movements to date, giving the regime an opportunity to separate between economic demands and political demands related to a change in the regime or its format.

    In addition to countering these protests through the use of Basij and police forces, the regime also organized pro-government demonstrations in the streets, the first of which took place on December 30th 2017. The demonstrators raised slogans condemning the United States and Israel and reaffirming national unity in the face of foreign interference in the affairs of the country. It was clear from the emergence of these pro-regime demonstrations that the latter feared a loss of control and that the general public in Iran would think that what the opposition is doing is the beginning of a sweeping popular revolution similar to that of 1979. The US plans and desire to bring about regime change in Iran or affect reforms will not be achieved unless it has the ability to mobilize or neutralize a military sector capable of upsetting the loyalty to the current regime and thus supporting these popular movements in addition to contacting known political entities internal to the regime or external that can be responsive to American demands but appear to reflect the people's aspirations for change.

    However, if the mullahs succeed in keeping the balance of military power in their favour through the allegiance of the army, the Revolutionary Guard and the rest of the security forces and if the regime succeeds in responding quickly to the economic demands and then separating these demands from the political agendas of the opposition parties (the PMOI and the supporters of the monarchy), the United States will fail in changing the current Iranian regime. Based on what was discussed above, it is more likely that at this stage, this wave of protests and demonstrations (even if the territory of Azerbaijan joins the movement) will not reach the phase of affecting a radical change in the regime unless an internal party can lead the street to civil disobedience that paralyzes the country or an important part of it, or unless it has military or security power with foreign support from US intelligence, similar to what happened in the Khomeini coup against the Shah.

    The lesson learned from the current Iran protests lies in the fact that even though the Iranian regime (ever since Khomeini took power in 1979) has supported most of America's plans in the region, starting with the occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq and now the occupation of Syria, that hasn’t stopped the United States and its intelligence services from seeking to change the regime in order to make it more obedient and amenable to the implementation of what the US foreign policy requires within Iran and the region.

    After the relative stability of Iraq and Syria and the US transfer of ISIS from the Arab countries to Afghanistan and Central Asia as a means to pressure Russia and China, it seems that the time has come to bring about changes in the regime in Tehran, enabling the new structure to advance its internal plans such as reducing the powers of the mullahs, federalism and regional projects such as Greater Kurdistan, normalization with Israel and full compliance with what the US wants in its relations with Russia and Turkey. All of these are necessary to implement the Greater Middle East Initiative with the aim to maintain US hegemony in the region for the rest of the century.

    Although shaking Iran’s relative stability will provide its politicians with the pretext to readjust some of their interventions in the region, seeing as the government in Tehran is in an obvious state of embarrassment after its interventions in some areas have reached a point that goes against the requirements of a US policy that has already paved the way for its interference and pushed them towards it. In Syria, for instance, the presence of Iranian or Iranian-backed militias is in conflict with the political settlement that the Syrian crisis is fast approaching, especially after the establishment of the de-escalation zones, and the fact that the Syrian army and Iranian militias are approaching areas where the Syrian Democratic Forces are present does not align with the US desire to establish a Kurdish state. Therefore, Tehran may find a pretext to ease up its interference or end it altogether according to the internal situation, as well as its interventions in Yemen after the issue of the two Riyadh missiles and in Lebanon after Hariri's resignation.

    In conclusion, after it has become as clear as the sun in broad daylight that the United States will abandon its agents or replace them with no regards to their long service if they are no longer useful, or if it is in their interest to discard them. Will those rulers who follow the secular unbeliever realise that they are walking in the steps of Satan himself, as Allah said: “And whoever takes Satan as an ally instead of Allah has certainly sustained a clear loss. Satan promises them and arouses desire in them. But Satan does not promise them except delusion. The refuge of those will be Hell, and they will not find from it an escape.” [4 - 119,120,121]

  • Appeal to the Islamic Ummah - Al-Khilafah al-Rashidah is the Direction 

    Appeal to the Islamic Ummah - Al-Khilafah al-Rashidah is the Direction

    Donald Trump's threat to suspend financial aid to the countries who voted in favour of the United Nations General Assembly's draft bill that slammed his decision to recognise the city of al-Quds as the capital of "Israel" is unprecedented in international relations pertinent to the resolutions of international organisations. Not only has this American threat revealed the scale of the browbeating America is carrying out against the rest of the world, it has also highlighted to the common people America's most imperative styles in manipulating the decisions of other states, namely the blackmailing of other states through what she refers to as "financial aid".

    Although Donald Trump's decision of 6 December 2017 recognising al-Quds as capital of "Israel" has violated the international law that the Christian Kufr states have been observing since the Westphalia peace conference of 1648, the timing of the decision has coincidently come 100 years after the declaration of British foreign secretary, Arthur Balfour, on 2 November 1917, followed by the entry of British general, Edmund Allenby, into al-Quds on 11 December 1917. These concordant dates prove that America's war on Islam and the Muslims is a constant doctrinal war waged with the cooperation of Britain and on behalf of the Western alliance. The essence of this war is about which Deen should dominate all others. Although most of the countries present at the General Assembly voted against America's decision, what this rogue superpower is perpetrating in terms of blatant belligerent policies to uproot Islam from the hearts of Muslims epitomises what the Western civilisation has reached in terms of intellectual conviction and political haughtiness stipulating that this civilisation has led the world towards the golden era of the "End of History"; they mean by this the hegemony of secular capitalism over all other religions. This notion is clearly deduced from the writings of American political scientist Francis Fukuyama and from America’s worldwide arrogance.

    Political Observation - Fallout of Trump's Decision and Scrutiny of his Speech

    US President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday 6 December 2017 America's recognition of al-Quds as the capital of "Israel". He also announced his decision to move the US embassy from "Tel Aviv" to Al-Quds. Donald Trump has therefore stirred up the dormant waters of the Palestinian issue and placed its file, which had been on the backburner throughout the "Arab Spring" years, on the table afresh. The first fallout of Trump's decision was the call by Hamas and other Palestinian groups for a new intifada in the occupied lands, in addition to the eruption of spontaneous and organised demonstrations in several Islamic and foreign countries.

    Political Observation - The Sochi Summit: A New Stage in Syria

    A day before the convening of the Sochi summit, Vladimir Putin received Bashar Al-Asad without prior announcement. This visit was equivalent to an American-Russian message to Turkey and the Syrian opposition factions that the political solution in Syria includes the remaining of Asad’s regime and consequently, Asad is part of the solution.

    This does not prevent slight amendments; however, it will not touch upon the substance of Asad remaining in power. These could include consolidating Asad’s power with what has been called “domestic opposition” and making amendments to the constitution firmly establishing federalism. That has been affirmed by Putin’s call to Donald Trump following the end of his meeting with Bashar Al-Asad, informing him about the content of the meeting.

    Political Observation - The Dimensions of Al-Hariri's Resignation and the Crackdown in Saudi

    Lebanese prime minister Saad al-Hariri announced a week ago from Saudi his resignation in a manner that took many by surprise. Al-Hariri justified taking his decision outside Lebanon with reasons related to his person, Hezbollah and Iran. He said his life was in danger: "I felt what was being covertly plotted to target my life,” he said. He also justified his resignation by claiming that he rejected Hezbollah's domestic custodianship over Lebanon and that he also rejected its military intervention in Syria and other countries of the region which has cost Lebanon its exceptional relationship with the Arab states.  And as for the third reason for his resignation, Saad al-Hariri opted to launch a scathing attack on the foreign custodianship Iran has been imposing on Lebanon which has turned Lebanon into a source of threat to regional security and created a "state within a state". Saad al-Hariri ended his statement about Iran with a threatening tone by saying "Iran's hands in the region shall be severed."

    The car-ramming operation of 17 August 2017 in the cities of Barcelona and Cambrils occurred under the following circumstances:
    1 - It is well known the government of Catalonia announced at the beginning of June that a referendum on the independence of the province from Spain would take place on 1 October 2017. And since the Spanish constitutional court continues to reject the decision to organise a referendum on the independence of Catalonia, the central government in Madrid entered into secret negotiations with the provincial government to reach an alternative other than the referendum, which both the central government and the constitutional court deem illegal.

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    Answers to Questions

    What is the reality of the rapprochement or rather the reconciliation between Saudi and Ali Abdullah Saleh?

    Answer: The transformation we are witnessing in the relationship between Saudi and Ali Abdullah Saleh is not unprompted but rather part of America's agenda to fragment Yemen and abort any genuine popular undertaking which could undermine her strategic interests in the region. Hence, we must not forget that the military incursion of the Arab Alliance into Yemen was at the behest of America who had paved the way to Ansar Allah to seize the reins of power and expel the wing of Mansour Hadi from Sana'a.

The magazine added that Netanyahu had pledged to Saudi via America not to tamper with the status quo in the Haram of al-Quds. It also mentioned that Netanyahu had invited Saudi officials to visit al-Aqsa Mosque and observe the situation on the ground. Although Netanyahu did not receive any response to his invitation, the source confirmed that Jordan had been posted on the progress of these contacts by Saudi.

    The High Committee of Fatwa in the interim eastern government of Abdullah al-Thani issued a fatwa on 9 July 2017 in which it confirmed Al-Ibādhiyyah as being a "deviant and aberrant sect". The committee added that Al-Ibādhiyyah are part of the Batiniyya Khawarij sect and they have various heresies such as their claim that the Qur'an is a creation and their rejection of the Rou'yah (sighting). The committee warned against praying behind Al-Ibādhiyyah followers. The fatwa evoked a huge uproar and strong reactions among public opinion; the Libyan Fatwa House in Tripoli was the first to react and deemed it as a part of "the sectarian fitna the narrow-minded and novices had been attempting to ignite among the Muslim people for years; it was not a spur-of-the-moment." The House indicated that the "biggest threat to Libya's security and stability is the division between Al-Ibādhiyyah and al-Malikiyah, the Berbers and the Arabs, the Tuareg, Tabbu and Sabhawiyah, the Soufis and the Salafis, the east, west and south, and Tripoli and the surrounding cities.

    The Link between Qatar’s Siege and Pressure on Europe

    When Saudi, Egypt and the UAE decided on behalf of America to cut their ties with Qatar and impose a blockade on it, the US administration was expecting her to respond swiftly to America’s conditions. However, the support she has received from Turkey and major European states headed by Germany with their call for dialogue and the lifting of the siege prompted Trump, with the operations team at the Pentagon, to up the ante against Qatar and accuse her of "sponsoring terrorism". This amounted to a clear warning to Turkey and Europe against backing Qatar lest the charge of terrorism should implicate them.

    The decision of Saudi, the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt and other states to sever their ties with Qatar, and the decision of Jordan to scale down her diplomatic ties with Qatar is a part of the American pressure exerted on Qatar to twist her arm into proceeding, like the rest of the Gulf States, in meeting the requirements of the new phase of the Greater Middle East Initiative related to the regional files including the Gulf as well as the need to compel Qatar to comply with the Trump administration’s imposition of huge sums of protection money on the Gulf States. In respect of the requirements of the new phase of the American initiative, the events that have stirred up troubled waters should be read in the context of what Qatar had been ordered in terms of ceasing sponsoring "terrorism", backing the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas and relinquishing her cooperation with "terrorism” sponsoring states (Iran). Demanding such measures from Qatar following Trump's recent visit could lead to perceiving the following issues:
