There is a Salafist Jihadism in Gaza….,but with out ISIL
One of the prominent Salafist leader from Gaza has ruled out an alleged existence of ISIL in Gaza and rejected its possible ties with HAMAS as some Western and Israeli source have recently claimed.
On the other hand he admitted the presence of different Salafist faction in Gaza. Some of those groups in fact represents Salafist Jihadism expose extremism and support ISIL. The others, like “Da’wah Salafism” are tied with local rulers and in this sens represents official political Islam. The third group of Salafist Jihadism is so called endogenous and trays not publicly demonstrate its jihadists fetchers like extremism and fanaticism
This leader. pointed out that “West” and Israel invented unexciting links between HAMAS and ISIL to launch their “Crusades” attacks on Arab revolutions in their failed attempts to topple them and stop their pass in the region towards Gulf.
He has also sited an example of what has been happened recently in Sanaa(Yemen) and expressed hid opinion that USA hadn’t succeeded much with the new Yemen’s rulers to stop the revolution and was forced to ask the support from Shi’i Huthis (in other words Iran)with approval (under high pressure) form Saudi Arabia.
Iranian “Trojan horse” for Lebanon
According to some knowledgable sources Iranian Minister of Defense H. Dahqan is going to send an invitation to his Lebanese counterpart S. Mokbel to visit Tehran for discussions of the needs of the Lebanese army in its war against terrorism. The command of Lebanese army allegedly has already began to prepare a detailed list of the needed weapons and ammunition.
Earlier last week Iranian Vice Foreign Minister, A. Lahyan has already tested this idea by proposing to make a significant gift for Lebanese army in their heroic fight against terrorism. Needless to say he didn’t keep in mind “Hisbollah” and Iraqi militias, but, of cause ISIL.
By no means Iran couldn’t remain indifferent in view of Saudi gift that was accepted few weeks ago by Lebanese army and played out an agreement reached at the council of Arab ministers more than 3 weeks ago that opened way for any unconditional gift offered to Lebanon from any country in the world except for those that considered hostile. But after giving up Sanaa to Huthis under Saudi “blind eye” can we consider Iran a hostile country.
Without any doubt Iranian plan of this sort has little chance for success without US unofficial approval on the background of the Iranian-American rapprochement on the nuclear issue and following the relatively successful cooperation in Iraq in power change and fighting ISIL.
By no means Iran has a reach political culture and highly performed diplomacy. Earlier A.l Lahyan addressing USA pointed on the need to strenghten the state armies and region’s governments as a common task to confront terrorism. Whether he has been keeping in mind Assad and his regime the question left opened.
In other words what Iran couldn’t achieve by using Arab uprising it is now trying to compensate fighting terrorism. Smart guys those Iranians. What about Lebanese whom i sincerely love?
Seems they simply haven’t a good excuse to reject this Iranian gift that expects unconditional armament of their Humat al-Diyyar (Guardians of the Homeland)?
As the Syrian government warplane flew overhead, Malik Abu Iskandaroon ran to a storage room and grabbed a Russian-made surface-to-air missile.
Moments later, on the roof of the three-story villa, which serves as air force headquarters for the Harakat Hazm rebel group, he squinted at the threat in the sky.
Missile launcher resting on his shoulder, Abu Iskandaroon prepared to fire. But in the end he refrained, as the Sukhoi fighter jet flew by, miles out of range of his older-generation weapon. As he stood by helpless, the plane fired one rocket toward the town, killing four people.
The Russian-made Igla missiles “can strike a target up to 2 kilometers [1.2 miles] away,” explained Abu Iskandaroon, who defected from a nearby government battalion. But the government warplanes “don’t fly under 4 kilometers.”
