1397/7/16 | 12:16
  A Saudi cleric with close ties to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) has called on faith leaders to travel to Jerusalem al-Quds in a bid to promote "peace" with Israel. Mohammed bin Abdul Karim Issa, head of the Muslim World League, made the controversial proposal in New York on the sidelines of an annual conference for “Cultural Rapprochement Between the US and the Muslim World” in New York. “We should send a peace convoy that is representative of all three Abrahamic religions. They should be Muslim, Christian and Jewish ...

Russia will monitor air traffic in Israel, Saudi Arabia, Europe from Syria

1397/7/11 | 12:16
The advanced defence and surveillance systems which Russia intends to send to Syria will be able to monitor flight movements in Israel, Saudi Arabia and Europe, media reports said. “We will know not only that someone has entered the airspace in this region, but also that somewhere a plane is only operating on the runway, be it in Israel or Saudi Arabia or even in Europe,” Vladimir Mikheyev, first deputy director of government-owned Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies, told Russia’s Tass news agency “Systems capable of combating precision ...

IAEA dismisses Israel's call to inspect Iran facility

1397/7/11 | 12:16
  The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has declined to "take at face value" a recent Israel's claim that Iran has a secret atomic warehouse. "The Agency uses all safeguards relevant information available to it but it does not take any information at face value," IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said in a statement released on Tuesday. Although Amano did not make an explicit reference to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's claim against Iran but it is his first public pronouncement since the premier's speech. "It should ...

What’s behind Qatar’s shift towards Israel? (Part 2)

1397/7/10 | 12:16
  One of the lobbyists working for Qatar in the US last year was Nick Muzin, who at one stage was paid an eye-watering $300,000 a month for his services. As reported at The Electronic Intifada, the main result of Muzin’s work seems to have been a steady flow of hard-right and Zionist American political figures visiting Qatar for cosy junkets including, in some cases, lengthy audiences with the Emir himself. These have included Alan Dershowitz, former presidential primary candidate Mike Huckabee and Morton Klein himself. Klein – ever ...

What is behind Qatar’s shift towards Israel? (Part 1)

1397/7/9 | 12:16
  Over the past year or so, the tiny Gulf state of Qatar has been getting increasingly close to pro-Israel figures from the United States.   Things are so bad that Qatar last year donated a quarter of a million dollars to some of America’s mostly rabidly anti-Palestinian, hard-right Zionist organisations, including the Zionist Organisation of America, whose president Morton Klein this month slandered Palestinians in openly racist terms as “filthy Arab[s]”. A pro-Israel policy is something of a departure for the small, gas-rich ...

Will Russia swallow Israel’s insult?

1397/7/7 | 12:16
Russia is one of the most protective countries of Israel and its security. This was strongly confirmed during the on going Syrian war. While Russia does not agree with some Israeli actions sometimes, the lack of approval does not develop into anger, and Russia continues to search for ways and means to ensure Israel’s security. Russia has swallowed a number of insults and humiliations from Turkey, the US, France, and Israel for confronting the armed organisations in Syria. It preferred the insults to the clashes, which could potentially result ...

Netanyahu puts on new anti-Iran show at UN, repeats baseless nuclear claims

1397/7/6 | 12:16
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has once again taken the stage at the United Nations to bring out fresh theatrics against Iran, repeating his threadbare allegation that the country is working to develop nuclear weapons at "secret" sites. As already expected, Netanyahu used a map and photographs of a building that he claimed was a "secret atomic weapons warehouse" in the Iranian capital, Tehran, to justify his false accusations during his speech on Thursday at the 73rd annual session of the UN General Assembly in New York. "In May ...

1397/7/5 | 12:16

Israel will have to think twice before attacking Syria again: Official

1397/7/5 | 12:16

Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said late Tuesday that his country welcomed the delivery of the S-300 air defense missile system, slated to arrive within two weeks. "I think that Israel, which is accustomed to carrying out many attacks under different pretexts, will have to think carefully about attacking Syria again," Mekdad said. Russian ...

John Bolton threatens Iran

1397/7/4 | 12:16
  While his boss was in town to address the U.N. General Assembly, his national security advisor, John Bolton, reinforced Trump’s we’ll-do-as-we-see-fit message to the world in an speech to a handpicked New York audience of people hostile to the Iran nuclear deal. As the Times of Israel reports, Bolton was about as subtle as a daisy-cutter bomb hitting a nuclear facility: US national security adviser John Bolton warned Iran of “hell to pay” and “serious consequences” if it defies the US, using some of the most aggressive language ...

Saudi Arabia bans 300,000 Palestinians from Makkah

1397/6/30 | 12:16

1397/6/11 | 12:16
Standing next to a secretive Israeli atomic reactor earlier in the week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to “wipe out” his enemies. In a speech that many will see as the Jewish state breaking its long silence over the possession of nuclear weapons, the Likud leader warned that it has the means to destroy its enemies. “Those who threaten to wipe us out put themselves in a similar danger, and in any event will not achieve their goal,” he said on Wednesday during a ceremony to rename the complex, near the desert town of Dimona. ...

US policy toward Iran reflects Saudi, Israeli influence

1397/6/6 | 12:16
The newest sanctions to be imposed against the Islamic Republic of Iran that have been announced by the United States represent the ongoing efforts of the Trump administration to escalate hostilities with Iran. During his campaign in 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump expressed opposition to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was an eight party agreement between Iran, the United States, England, France, Russia, China, Germany and the European Union that had been formulated in Switzerland in 2015 during the administration of ...
