Israel ready to share intel on Iran with Saudi Arabia: Military chief

1396/8/26 | 04:28
Chief of Staff of Israeli military, Lieutenant General Gadi Eizenkot, says Tel Aviv is ready to share intelligence with Saudi Arabia in their joint efforts to confront Iran. In an interview with the Saudi-owned Elaph online newspaper on Thursday, Eizenkot claimed that Iran was the "biggest threat to the region” and was seeking “to take control of the Middle East.” “This is what must be prevented in the region,” he went on to say, noting that Tel Aviv and Riyadh were in full agreement about Iran's intentions. Eizenkot further expressed ...

Netanyahu: Israel Will Act Alone to Force Iran Out of Syria

1396/8/25 | 04:28
  Israel will stop at nothing to contain Iran, even if it has to act alone, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. The PM accused Tehran of plotting to destroy Israel from Syria, where it has been helping fight terrorists at the government's invitation. “Iran is scheming to entrench itself militarily in Syria,” Netanyahu claimed as he addressed the Jewish Federation of North America’s General Assembly in Los Angeles via a video conference on Tuesday. The Israeli leader further alleged that Iran, which serves as one of ...

How Israel and Saudi Arabia Conspire to Seize Control of the Middle East?

1396/8/25 | 04:28
    The cable instructs Israeli diplomats to ratchet up diplomatic pressure against Lebanese Hezbollah and Iran.   The Israeli plan saw an opportunity in the fact that the new regime in Saudi Arabia headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) was able to force Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, a longtime puppet of the Saudis, to resign his post from Saudi soil.   The Israeli cable also urged its missions abroad to pressure foreign governments to support Saudi Arabia’s war against the Houthis in Yemen. Iran ...

Corruption in Israel is not just an Israeli issue

1396/8/24 | 04:28
  Whether the string of scandals, now hounding Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, lead to his sacking or not, it matters little.   Though nearly half of Israelis polled last July – well before the scandals took a much dirtier turn – believe that Netanyahu is corrupt, a majority of Israelis said that they would still vote for him.   A recent survey conducted by Israel’s Channel 10 TV concluded that, if general elections are held today, Netanyahu will garner 28% while his closest contenders, Avi Gabbay of the ...

Did Israel enforce Trump to renegotiate nuclear agreement with Iran?

1396/8/24 | 04:28
  Trump administration warned Iran that it should be prepared for renegotiating a nuclear agreement signed with world powers in 2015 because the deal was probably not in US interests.   The warning, as can be expected, did not go down well in Tehran, provoking a storm of protests. And Iran’s president, Hassan Rowhani, ruled out the possibility of renegotiating the deal.     Trump and some of his senior officials now are reported to have a new plan in mind — not to blow up the deal but to renegotiate a better one.   According ...

Rapprochement with Israel carries a heavy price tag for Riyadh

1396/8/23 | 04:28
  Riyadh is convinced that rapprochement with Israel is the cornerstone of its desperate attempts to achieve any victory for Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman before he officially takes the throne.   Many Arabs did not believe the Israeli Prime Minister’s statements over recent years that there was a great understanding between Israel and a major Arab country; they were a clear reference to Saudi Arabia.   Observers believe that Riyadh has lost the battle with Tehran in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. The Saudi stalemate in Yemen ...

Islamic Jihad vows retaliation for Israeli attack

1396/8/23 | 04:28
  Palestine’s Islamic Jihad Movement slammed the fresh Israeli threats as a declaration of war, saying the Tel Aviv regime will have to pay the price for a military attack on a tunnel in Gaza that killed 12 members of the Islamic Jihad and Hamas some two weeks ago.     “Israel has killed 12 Palestinians in Gaza and another one in the West (Bank) over the last two weeks… When they kill men of the resistance, and especially from Islamic Jihad, we have no other choice but to punish the occupier, and continue to strengthen the buildup ...

What the Mossad’s female agents do — and don’t do — for the sake of Israel

1396/8/22 | 04:28
    Breaking cover, five high-ranking agents discuss the advantages they have as female spies, the dangers and costs of their work, and where they draw the line.   For female Mossad agents, life is like a spy-movie — though not always as glamorous. Theirs is a world of intrigue, sleepless nights and, sometimes, flirtation, in conditions of ever-lurking danger, all for the sake of the state, with immense strains on their families.   For the first time, five female Mossad agents went public this week, in interviews with ...

The untold story: why Priti Patel’s departure is ‘a great loss for Israel’

1396/8/22 | 04:28
  It is easy enough to understand why an ambitious politician like Priti Patel would have wanted to court Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI), described this week by The Jewish Chronicle’s reporter Marcus Dysch as “the biggest lobbying group in Westminster”.   But what about the Israeli government and its allies? Why, in the words of Israeli opposition politician Isaac Herzog, was Patel’s fall from grace a “great loss for Israel”?   True, she looked like future leadership material. But in fact, a more interesting ...

Israeli Officials :We Will Bombard Russia’s military bases in Syria If The S-300 is Given to Our Enemies

1396/8/19 | 04:28
  The news that Israel had attacked targets in Syria was a yawner. The Israeli Air Force has been regularly paying visits to Syria for years, attacking convoys transporting Iranian weapons to Hezbollah, or destroying a Syrian nuclear reactor in 2007.   But this time, Syrian media reported that Israel fired several surface-to-surface missiles at a military airport. Yet much more significant is that fact that the airport was located outside Damascus, probably at least twenty-five miles from the Israeli border.   If in fact the ...

Leak: Israel supported Hariri’s resignation

1396/8/18 | 04:28
  Israel’s Channel 10 has published a leaked cable sent from the Israeli foreign ministry to all Israeli ambassadors calling on them to support Saudi efforts and rally support for the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri.   The classified cable urged the diplomats to appeal to the highest officials within their host countries to attempt to expel Hezbollah from the Lebanese government and politics.   On Saturday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described Hariri’s resignation as a wake-up call for ...

Israel arrests 483 Palestinian children this year

1396/8/17 | 04:28

US, Israel biggest supporters of terrorism in Middle East: Iran Def. Min.

1396/8/17 | 04:28
Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami says the United States and the Zionist regime of Israel are the biggest supporters of terrorism in the Middle East region. Speaking in a meeting with Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff Qamar Javed Bajwa in Tehran on Tuesday, Hatami pointed to threadbare plots hatched by the United States and Israel, saying that they were the biggest source of support for terrorist groups wreaking havoc on a number of countries in the region.   The Iranian minister said US-nurtured extremism and the fight ...

Israel-Saudi behind Lebanese PM Resignation

1396/8/15 | 04:28
    Saudi-born billionaire Wahhabi prime minister of Lebanon Sa’ad Hariri announced his resignation after a meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.   He blamed Hizbullah for creating anti-West hysteria in the country which has resulted in isolation of the country within international community.   Personally, I think Lebanese nation would be better off with Western-stooges like Sa’ad Hariri whose father Rafik Hariri was murdered by Mossad in 2005 over praising Hizbullah for forcing Jewish army to withdraw ...

Why should Britain apologise for the Balfour Declaration?

1396/8/12 | 04:28
  Until now, the British government does not seem inclined to review its colonial behavior in Palestine, which led to the establishment of the Zionist state “Israel” there, and caused a catastrophe for the Palestinian people.   They were dislodged from most of their land, and their social fabric was ripped apart, while most Palestinians became refugees. The statement by UK Prime Minister Theresa May, in which she showed pride in the Balfour Declaration and the foundation of Israel, is only proof of that.   British policy ...

Israel, US call on EU to declare Hezbollah a terrorist organisation

1396/8/12 | 04:28
  Israel’s Yesh Atid party leader, Yair Lapid and US Congressman, Ted Deutch have called on the European Union to declare Hezbollah a “terrorist organisation”.   In a joint statement published in Spain’s La Sierra newspaper and Italian Corriere Della Sera newspaper yesterday, the officials described Hezbollah as “the most horrifying terrorist organisation”.   The two called on the European countries to cancel what they called “false distinction” between the political and military arms of Hezbollah, and to declare ...

Israel, Saudi Arabia have linked up against Iran: Larijani

1396/8/12 | 04:28
  Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani says Israel and Saudi Arabia are in cahoots against the Islamic Republic, which has played a positive role in providing regional security. “The Zionist regime and Saudi Arabia have linked up in their enmity towards Iran and in regional and international issues, they are making moves against the Islamic Republic," he said on Thursday while addressing a session in the Iranian city of Qom.  Tel Aviv and Riyadh, Larijani said, are seeking to provoke the US against Iran, but this situation has ...

Leaked emails: UAE wants Qatar to be ‘accountable’ for supporting BDS

1396/8/11 | 04:28
  Qatar’s support for the global Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel was a major cause of concern amongst senior UAE diplomats in Washington during the months leading up to the imposition of the Saudi-led siege on Doha.

Walls and militarised police: How Israel is exporting its occupation to the US

1396/8/10 | 04:28
  Israeli footprints are becoming more apparent in the US security apparatus. Such a fact does not bode well for ordinary Americans.   US Senate Bill S.720 should have been a wake-up call. The bill, drafted by the Israel lobby group, American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), as part of its “2017 Lobbying Agenda” is set to punish any individual or company that boycotts Israel for its violation of Palestinian human rights.   The severe punishment could reach a million dollars in fines, and up to 20 years in jail. ...

Saudi Arabia, Israel and America are misleading the world on the Iran nuclear deal

1396/7/25 | 04:28

When the word spread that he intended to decertify it there were some sarcastic suggestions that perhaps he needs ...

1396/7/20 | 04:28
