Iran’s Priorities in a Turbulent Middle East – LobeLog

by International Crisis Group // Iran’s Priorities in a Turbulent Middle East – LobeLog: Iranian leaders’ first priority, regardless of where they stand on the political spectrum, is to ensure the Islamic Republic’s perpetuation. This imperative includes deterring adversaries that have stronger militaries and/or Western support. Iran’s sense of insecurity is rooted in the tumultuous post-1979 era, particularly the sense of strategic solitude it experienced during the traumatic eight-year war with Iraq, when the West and almost all Arab states supported the Saddam Hussein regime to contain Iran’s emerging revolutionary order, which seemed bent on exporting its revolution throughout the Muslim world. It was then that Iran forged a close bond with the Syrian regime of Hafez al-Assad and helped establish Hizbollah in Lebanon, a group it has supplied militarily via Syria ever since.

Invitation to join the 2018 Frontier Wars March on Anzac Day, Canberra | Sovereign Union - First Nations Asserting Sovereignty

Invitation to join the 2018 Frontier Wars March on Anzac Day, Canberra | Sovereign Union - First Nations Asserting Sovereignty: Gather at 9.30 am Wednesday 25 April 2018 at lower end of Anzac Parade, Canberra
(Corner Constitution Ave and Anzac Parade)

Invitation to March

We encourage all comers to join us so that we show to the public that here is a desperate need to tell the truth about the colonisation of this country and the devastation wreaked upon First Nations Peoples.

This is not a whinge. This is real history.

We need to remember those who defended their rights to their country; who volunteered to fight for their country in modern wars, despite being treated as second class peoples with no civil rights.

We need to remember all of them, not just the few.

Help us remember and help us bury our dead.

IROQUOIS CAUCUS PSYCHO’THUGS | Mohawk Nation News

IROQUOIS CAUCUS PSYCHO’THUGS | Mohawk Nation News: IC is a shadow organization of sell-outs from akwesasne, kahnawake, kahnesatake, oneida, Six Nations, tyendinaga and wahta.

The land they are wheeling and dealing is held by the clans throughout onowaregeh, turtle island. The women of the clans are the only decision makers regarding lands and members of the clans. This is an illegal meeting.

Longhouses have refused to jump on board to make them look legitimate. They mimic the rotino’shonni-onwe [Iroquois] Confederacy positions, titles and symbols. They want to become the gossips between the provinces and federal government.

Kurdish parties in Syria are concerned about the replacement of US forces with another Arab led by Saudi Arabia By Ivan Hassib

الأحزاب الكوردية في سوريا متوجسة من استبدال القوات الأمريكية بأخ



رووداو – القامشلي

تواجه مسألة دخول قوات عربية بقيادة المملكة العربية السعودية إلى مناطق "شمال سوريا" حالةً من عدم الرضا من جانب الحركة السياسية الكوردية في كوردستان سوريا، حيث يرى سكرتير الحزب الشيوعي الكوردستاني، نجم الدين عمر، أن "إرسال قوات عربية سوف يمنح تركيا الحجة لشرعنة دخول قواتها لمنطقة عفرين ومناطق أخرى من سوريا".

وقال نجم الدين عمر، لشبكة رووداو الإعلامية، إننا "بحاجة لقوات حفظ السلام التابعة للأمم المتحدة لأنها كفيلة بحلِّ المسألة، أو أن يكون هناك حظر جوي فوق كوردستان سوريا وشرق الفرات لكي يتمكن شعبنا من العيش بسلام، لأنه في حال قدوم قوات عربية، فإن النظام التركي أيضاً سيقول إنه موجود في عفرين، ويحتلُّ 365 قرية و7 مدن وبلدات في عفرين، وأنه أيضاً مثل هذه القوة العربية القادمة".

بعض الأطراف السياسية الكوردية تدعو إلى عدم انسحاب القوات الأمريكية من كوردستان سوريا، فالمجلس الوطني الكوردي يعتبر ائتلافاً من الأحزاب الكوردية المعارضة للإدارة الذاتية، وهو يربط استقرار كوردستان سوريا ببقاء القوات الأمريكية في المنطقة، ويرى أن إرسال قوات عربية سيؤدي إلى نتائج وخيمة.

من جهته أوضح عضو الأمانة العامة للمجلس الوطني الكوردي، فتحي كدو، أن "الوجود الأمريكي هو عنوان الأمان والضمان، ولكن إذا أرادت أمريكا مجيء مثل هذه القوة، فستصبح تلك القوة سبباً في الخلافات بمنطقتنا، وفي تصفيةِ الحسابات بين الإيرانيين والأمريكيين والخليجيين".

الوضع السوري بحاجة إلى حلول سياسية تحت إشراف المجتمع الدولي، هذا ما يراه الحزب الديمقراطي التقدمي في إبداء موقفه من إرسال قوات عربية إلى سوريا، ويؤكد أنه لا يرى في زيادة القوات العسكرية على الساحة السورية سوى تصعيداً للأزمة.

كما أكد عضو المكتب السياسي للحزب الديمقراطي التقدمي الكوردي في سوريا، أحمد بركات، أن "هذه القوات لا نجد لها أي مستقبل في سوريا، ولن تتمكن من ترك تأثير إيجابي على الأزمة السورية بشكل عام، والمسألة الكوردية بشكل خاص".

Kurdish parties in Syria are concerned about the replacement of US forces with another Arab led by Saudi Arabia
By Ivan Hassib
// rudaw.net // Some Kurdish political parties call for the withdrawal of US forces from Kurdistan and Syria and the stability of Kurdistan linked Syria to the survival of those forces

Roudao - Qamishli

The issue of the entry of Arab forces led by Saudi Arabia to the areas of "northern Syria" is a state of dissatisfaction by the Kurdish political movement in Kurdistan Syria, where the Secretary of the Communist Party of Kurdistan, Necmettin Omar, that "the sending of Arab troops will give Turkey the argument to legitimize the entry Its forces to the area of ​​Afrin and other parts of Syria. "
 
"We need UN peacekeepers because they can resolve the issue, or there should be an air embargo over Kurdistan, Syria and East Euphrates, so that our people can live in peace, because if Arab forces come in, the regime The Turkish will also say that it is in Afrin, occupying 365 villages and 7 cities and towns in Afrin, and that it is also such an Arab force coming. "

 Some Kurdish political parties call for the withdrawal of US forces from Kurdistan, Syria. The National Council of Kurdistan is a coalition of Kurdish parties opposed to self-management, which connects the stability of Kurdistan Syria to the survival of US forces in the region and believes that the sending of Arab forces will lead to serious consequences.

For his part, member of the General Secretariat of the Kurdish National Council, Fathi Kaddo, that "the American presence is the title of safety and security, but if America wanted to come such a force, it will become the cause of power differences in our region, and the settling of accounts between Iranians and Americans and Gulf."

The Syrian situation needs political solutions under the supervision of the international community. This is what the Progressive Democratic Party sees in expressing its position on sending Arab troops to Syria. He stresses that he sees no increase in the military forces on the Syrian arena except an escalation of the crisis.

"These forces have no future in Syria and will not be able to leave a positive impact on the Syrian crisis in general, and the Kurdish issue in particular," said a member of the Political Bureau of the Kurdish Progressive Democratic Party in Syria, Ahmed Barakat.

Solidarity with human rights defenders intensifies | Institute of Race Relations

Solidarity with human rights defenders intensifies | Institute of Race Relations: Written by Anya Edmond-Pettitt

On 7 May, the trial of the crew of a search and rescue NGO ship who in January 2016 were saving lives in the Mediterranean will open in Mytilene, on the Greek island of Lesbos.

Danish-Iraqi national, Salam Aldeen (co-founder of Team Humanity), faces prosecution, alongside three Spanish fire-fighters, Manuel Blanco, Enrique Rodr�guez and Julio Latorre (all volunteers with Proem-aid). Unbelievably, these four human rights defenders face charges of human smuggling.

On 10 April, the IRR was invited to Berlin to participate in a solidarity meeting organised by ConAction with Team Humanity and Refugee Law Clinics Abroad. Keynote speaker Salam Aldeen spoke of the life-changing experiences on Lesbos and the ordeal of his arrest. Also speaking was Mohammed, one of those waiting to be rescued that night, who conveyed the terror of waiting for an entire dark night for rescue as water slowly filled the boat.
