Recent reports from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the accuracy of which have been conceded by the White House, but denied in Tel Aviv, have it that slightly less than half of Syria’s chemical weapons have already left the country and 100% of the country’s stockpiles are believed to have been neutralized. Well along the path to meet the June 30 agreed discard date. Both Iran and Russia have been credited with helping persuade the Syrian government that it is very much in the interest of Syria as well as the global community to discard its chemical weapons stockpiles which date back to the 1970s. A total of 11 consignments have been recently shipped out of Syria for decontamination and disposal, the latest from Latakia. Included is all of Syria’s sulphur mustard gas, a blister agent that was first widely used in WWI.

Captain Clyde Chester Lamb, the father of this observer, was a one of hundreds of victims of the deadly gas while fighting the Germans in front-line trenches in eastern France. Capt. Lamb survived, but never fully recovered, and when he did later speak about his experiences in the war, which was not often, he once told his horrified children at story time that he and his comrades had no gas masks so they used to improvise by urinating on scraps of uniforms which he would distribute to his men with instructions to hold it tightly over their nose and mouth. Somehow their pee seemed to reduce the effects of the poisonous gas.

Despite some delays due to security and logistical issues, few besides the Zionist lobby in the US Congress doubt that Syria’s work will be completed. Across Syria, according to information made available to this observer, specialists have speeded up the packing and transporting of the chemical weapons, sometimes even moving them through rebel territory to the Mediterranean port of Latakia.

In cooperation with Iran, Russia has supplied large-capacity containers and armored vehicles for the Latakia loading operation while China has sent 10 ambulances and surveillance cameras and Finland dispatched an emergency response team in case of accidents. Denmark and Norway are providing cargo ships and military escorts to take the chemicals to the container port of Gioia Tauro in Italy and the American government, among others, is also helping.

Despite Iranian cooperation with this major humanitarian project and, according to IAEA spokesmen, “solid progress has been made with the Iranian nuclear file”, the White House to date is still waffling on its pledged meager lifting of sanctions which continue to target the people of Iran. US sanctions also continue to compound and increase the nearly unfathomable suffering of the Syrian people all of whom have been targeted by Barack Obama

Executive Orders ever tightening their noose of economic sanctions.
ObamaThe White House has yet to explain its delay, but Congressional sources report that President Obama is still being targeted by Israel and its Congressional agents and that Obama does not yet want to lift sanctions “for now”, more than cosmetically. This applies to medicine and medical equipment.

The same source claims that the White House is also signaling Tehran that it should continue to be patient while a sanctions review is getting started in Washington. Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Kerry has just assured Iran’s leadership that the White House appreciates the fatwa (religious decree) issued by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei last month forbidding the production and use of nuclear weapons. Kerry agreed that Iran is entitled to a peaceful nuclear program and he also credited the earlier statement by Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokes Ramin Mehman-Parast that Ayatollah Khamenei’s fatwa is binding for Iran, and that “There is nothing more important in defining the framework for our nuclear activities than the Leader’s fatwa.”

Imam KhameneiA recent Office of Financial Assets Control (OFAC) prosecution of an American citizen seeking to ship potentially life-saving MRI medical equipment to Iran illustrates the weak knees of the Obama White House by allowing that Zionist dominated Federal agency to ramp up its targeting of the people of Iran. 

There are dozens of cases like the one noted below and President Obama is presumably aware of them. The shameful case under review involves a University Medical Researcher who is being targeting with jail time for sending a medical device to Iran which his lawyers argued was completely innocent and clearly legal because medical equipment such as MRI’s are exempted by the ‘ humanitarian exceptions’ stated in Obama’s relevant Executive Orders imposing US sanctions against Iran.

Mr. Cliff Burns, a lawyer and law professor in Washington DC explained the case of Mr.Mohamad Nazemzadeh, who was a Research Fellow in the Neurology Department of the University of Michigan at the time of his arrest, and who is being federally prosecuted for sending a medical device to the Netherlands.

At issue is a coil for a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. The coil is the assembly of wires that generates the necessary radio signals when electricity flows through them to permit imaging the part of the body within the coil. Mr. Nazemzadeh is currently doing research at the Henry Ford hospital in Detroit and his area of specialty is, not surprisingly, magnetic resonance imaging.

As explained by Mr. Burns, “A part for an MRI machine would, under the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act of 2000, be eligible for an export license notwithstanding the embargo on Iran. Nazemzadeh’s failure to obtain a license would, of course, be a violation of the embargo.” Even assuming that it was a technical criminal violation in his case, one has to wonder why, as Burns does, Obama Administration prosecutorial resources are being consumed to prosecute a researcher for trying to send life-saving medical equipment to Iran.

As one of the researchers lawyers noted: “Aren’t there dangerous people out there with guns and bombs who might warrant the attention instead?” An affidavit in support of a search warrant for Nazemzadeh’s mobile phone casts doubt on whether Nazemzadeh actually had the criminal intent necessary to support an OFAC pushed criminal prosecution in the first place for the attempted export of the MRI part.

According to the affidavit, Nazemzadeh was negotiating with the undercover federal agent sent in by OFAC to ship the MRI coil to Iran through a company in the Netherlands. It is not uncommon for people to believe, even if they study the vague wording of the Iranian sanction minutia, that if it is legal to ship an item to a particular country, no laws are broken if the item is then re-exported, without any involvement on their part, to a prohibited destination. Here, according to the affidavit, Mr. Nazemzadeh continued to say to the undercover agent that he believed the transaction was legal and says this is true because the export from the United States is to the Netherlands, not Iran. Mr. Nazemzadeh’s good faith legal mistake is not a criminal act.

Instead, this is precisely the sort of case that ought to be evaluated, if at all, as an administrative matter by OFAC, were that Muslim targeting agency anywhere near fair-minded and objective. OFAC should have at the maximum issued a fine in this case notwithstanding Mr. Nazemzadeh’s mistaken belief that the transaction did not violate U.S. law.

If the White House truly wants to normalize relations with Iran and with Syria as it claims, it needs to do a lot better. A good start would be by calling off OFACs attack dogs who service other than the American people. Also it should honor its oft touted “Humanitarian sanctions against Iran and Syria that exempts medicines and medical equipment”.

This language has not been implemented and it misleads the global community about the brutal and illegal nature of the White House promulgated civilian targeting, for political purposes, sanctions.

This weekend’s White House greetings to the people of the Islamic Republic for Nowruz the Iranian New Year in the Solar Hijri calendar are no doubt sincere and appreciated.

But now it’s time to give substance to America’s New Year’s greetings that her citizens can be proud of and, that are accordant and consistent with their values.

Saudi Arabia: An Ailing Monarchy

Published Tuesday, October 25, 2011
The recent death of Saudi Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdul-Aziz signals the imminent end of an era of first generation rule and raises questions about successors to the ailing king. Prince Nayef is the most likely candidate to replace him.

Saudis have been preoccupied with the health of their king, Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz, for a month, expecting news of his death at any moment. But on October 22, Saudi state television announced the death of Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdul-Aziz. Now the kingdom faces changes in leadership under a new set of circumstances. The powerful princes – children of the late Abdul-Aziz Al Saud – are all over 80 years old and most of them are suffering health problems associated with old age. Crown Prince Sultan and his older brother King Abdullah both seemed to be in a race with death this past year. Sultan, who died in New York City at the age of 86, is the only son of Abdul-Aziz to become crown prince without becoming king. For the first time, there is controversy in the kingdom over who will be the successor to the throne when the king dies.

The death of Sultan, who is number 15 among Abdul-Aziz’s ‘first-rank’ children, is a watershed moment in the history of Saudi Arabia for many reasons. It signals the end of the era of Abdul-Aziz’s children, known for their nomadic and paternalistic ruling style. This era was characterized by a blind obedience to the king, which explains the smooth transition of power in accordance with the mechanism set by the founder of Saudi Arabia, Abdul-Aziz, based on age and competence. This mechanism was applied through consensus since the royal family forced King Saud to abdicate the throne in 1964, in favor of his brother Faisal. 

Sultan possessed a strong personality and a distinguished place among the so-called seven Sudairi brothers – Fahd, Sultan, Abdul-Rahman, Turki the second, Nayef, Salman and Ahmed – children of Hassa Al Sudairi, the first wife of King Abdul-Aziz. He grew up during the kingdom’s establishment and occupied many positions after taking up his role as chief of the national guard in 1942. In 1947, he became governor of the capital Riyadh and eventually became a minister in 1953. After passing through several positions he became minister of defense in 1962, where he stayed until his oldest son Khaled took his place. After King Fahd died in 1982, Sultan became deputy prime minister. In 2005, King Abdullah, who succeeded King Fahd, appointed him crown prince in accordance with the old order of succession, before establishing the Allegiance Council in 2006. 

Sultan’s position in the Ministry of Defense and his chairmanship of several internal committees enabled him to become a major figure in Saudi politics, both domestically and in international relations. Arming the kingdom was the key to Sultan’s foreign relations, primarily involving the US and Britain. Sultan, along with his brother Fahd, established close political and military ties with the US. This became evident at important junctures in the history of the region, such as the Palestinian cause, the Iraq-Iran war and the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait. The pair, Fahd and Sultan, represented a bridgehead for the US project and interventions in the area.

One of Sultan’s sources of strength was the control he wielded over his country’s relationship with the other Gulf countries and Yemen. This was reflected in his management of border disputes with members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), successfully using these issues to maintain Saudi hegemony. His strongest role was in Yemen. He established an office called the “special committee” to manage Yemeni affairs. For about 40 years, Prince Sultan’s intervention and influence on the tribes, clergy, and the military in the north determined Yemen’s political direction.

While Sultan was undergoing medical treatment, there was anxiety that his death would create discord within the family council over his succession. It was believed that the deputy defense minister, Prince Abdul-Rahman bin Abdul-Aziz, would demand the position of crown prince because he is older than the strong candidate Prince Nayef bin Abdul-Aziz. Abdul-Rahman’s latest moves, his close ties to King Abdullah, and their repeated media appearances together point indicate as much. His return to Saudi Arabia indicates that he is preparing to contest the position of crown prince, especially because he is supported by King Abdullah, who assigned him the defense ministry’s tasks. This in turn supported Abdul-Rahman’s political position after a long absence from the kingdom, rumored to be due to his anger over Nayef’s appointment as second deputy prime minister in 2009. Despite this, sources inside the royal family confirm that the issue was settled with Nayef’s appointment to this position, with the position of crown prince ultimately going to him.

Last year, many Saudis were worried about the line of succession to the throne, as it required a clear and quick decision from the Allegiance Council. King Abdullah set a meeting for the family Council at the end of last Ramadan, where it was expected that Prince Salman, governor of Riyadh, would coordinate the meeting. But Salman was with his brother Sultan in New York City, so the meeting was postponed until Prince Sultan returned. But Sultan’s health deteriorated and he went into a coma last month. It is believed that older princes, like Mishaal, Abdul-Rahman and Talal will likely protest Nayef’s appointment to the position of crown prince at the meeting. However, sources point out that only Prince Talal will protest strongly, especially because most of the family see nothing wrong with Nayef’s appointment given his security achievements against terrorism, the tribal support he has, and his strong relationship with the religious institution.

With 78-year-old Nayef’s appointment as crown prince, Saudi Arabia enters a new phase characterized by further extremism domestically and in terms of foreign relations. Domestically, Nayef is known for leading the forces that opposed the reforms which King Abdullah has tried to implement since becoming king in 2005. Nayef is one of the strongest opponents to demands of political freedom and women’s rights. Of all his brothers, he is considered the closest to the Wahhabi religious institution which has for a long time been part of the interior ministry. The same thing can be said in terms of foreign relations. Nayef takes a security based approach to managing the kingdom’s relations. Saudi quarters confirm that Nayef was behind the decision to send the Peninsula Shield Force to Bahrain to repress the popular uprising there.

Some within Saudi Arabia foresee negative repercussions to Nayef’s ascent in the coming period. There might be a decline in Saudi Arabia’s role because Nayef himself has many illnesses and lacks the unanimous support that his older brothers who served as kings had. Foreign countries view Nayef as a security man who lacks diplomatic experience. 

If Nayef becomes crown prince, Salman, the governor of Riyadh, who is 76 years old will ascend to 'first rank' among the princes after he has been in 'second-rank' for a long time. There are many commonalities between Nayef and Salman such as their close ties to the religious institution. Salman will play a major role for three reasons. One, he is in between two generations in the royal family and is socially closer to the second generation. Two, he has been dean of the family since 2006. And three, he held a strong position in the Riyadh principality, which is considered the political and economic center of the kingdom. But his future role will depend on his health: he is beleaguered by heart and other health problems associated with old age.

Saudi Prince Muqrin named second-in-line to succeed king

Published Thursday, March 27, 2014
http://english.al-akhbar.com/content/saudi-prince-muqrin-named-second-line-succeed-king
 
Saudi Arabia's Prince Muqrin bin Abdulaziz, a former intelligence chief, has been appointed deputy crown prince, Saudi state television reported on Thursday, making it more likely he will one day become king.

The appointment makes Muqrin, the youngest son of the kingdom's founder King Abdulaziz al-Saud, next in line to succeed in the world's top oil exporter after his half-brothers King Abdullah and Crown Prince Salman.

"King Abdullah appoints Prince Muqrin as king in case the positions of king and crown prince become vacant," al-Arabiya television said, quoting a statement from the royal court.

The announcement gives more assurance to the kingdom's long-term sucession process at a moment when sees itself as being a lone island of stability amid conflict and political turmoil across the Middle East.

King Abdullah turned 90 last year and Crown Prince Salman is 78. Muqrin was 70 last year.
Muqrin already holds the position of second deputy prime minister, a role to which he was appointed a year ago and was traditionally but informally seen as being equivalent to crown prince in waiting.

Tentara Suriah dan Hizbullah terus bergerak maju di desa Flita dekat perbatasan Libanon, tempat elemen-elemen Takfiri melarikan diri setelah pembebasan kota Yabroud, Suriah.

"Ada pertempuran sengit kemarin malam dan tadi malam, pasukan pemerintah mencoba mengambil alih desa itu, tapi sekarang sudah berhenti", kata Rami Abdul-Rahman, direktur Observatorium Suriah untuk Hak Asasi Manusia pada Kamis, 27/03/14.

Tentara terus menyerang para militan di desa itu, katanya lagi.

Pemimpin Dewan Militer di Qalamoun -sebuah kelompok pemberontak-, tewas dalam bentrokan dan sekitar delapan orang, termasuk salah seorang asistennya, tewas dalam serangan bom barel, tambah Abdul -Rahman, sebagaimana dilansir oleh al-Alam.

Awal bulan ini, Angkatan Darat Suriah dan Hizbullah mengambil alih kota Yabroud setelah berbulan-bulan bertempur untuk merebut kota strategis di perbatasan Libanon-Suriah.

Jet-jet tempur Suriah membombardir posisi pemberontak di provinsi pesisir Latakia, di mana para pemberontak meraih keberuntungan saatmelawan pasukan pemerintah selama enam hari berturut-turut, kata Observatorium.

Pasukan pemerintah terus bertempur selama berhari-hari melawan elemen-elemen Takfiri dari berbagai kelompok ekstrimis, termasuk Front al-Nusra, yang meluncurkan serangan di provinsi ini seminggu yang lalu dan merebut sejumlah kota di penyeberangan perbatasan dengan Turki, dan - untuk pertama kalinya dalam konflik 3 tahun - bentangan kecil pantai di Laut Mediterania.

Bentrokan sengit berlangsung pada Kamis terjadi, karena tentara mencoba mengambil alih dua kota di Kasab yang didominasi Kristen Armenia, dekat desa Nabaan, yang diambil alih oleh para pemberontak.

Artileri juga memberondong posisi-posisi pemberontak di Kasab dan hampir setiap satu sampai dua menit terdengar ledakan, menurut seorang wartawan Associated Press (AP) di Misherfeh, sebuah desa yang terletak di kaki gunung yang menghadap Kasab.

Seorang komandan lapangan berbicara kepada wartawan di Misherfeh mengatakan, tentara membuat kemajuan besar dan memukul mundur elemen-elemen Takfiri.

"Tentara dan Angkatan Pertahanan Nasional (NDF) bergerak maju menuju Kasab dari Nabaan dan Qastal Maaf," kata komandan , yang berbicara dengan syarat anonim.

Selama sebulan terakhir ini, tentara Suriah didukung oleh kelompok perlawanan Hizbullah berhasil menguasai sejumlah kota-kota yang dikuasai pemberontak dan desa-desa di sepanjang perbatasan Suriah dengan Libanon dan memutus aliran logistik dan tentara bayaran, senjata dan perlengkapan di seluruh perbatasan itu.

Buronan dari elemen Takfiri Sami Ahmed al-Atrash tewas di rumah sakit setelah terluka parah dalam baku tembak dengan tentara Libanon yang menggerebek rumahnya di dekat Arsal di perbatasan lembah Bekaa.

Tewasnya buronan nomer wahid dan paling berbahaya pemerintah Libanon itu dilaporkan oleh National News Agency (NNA), pada Kamis, 27/03/14.

"Atrash menjadi burunon atas beberapa surat perintah penangkapan," lapor NNA.

Tentara kemudian mengeluarkan pernyataan yang mengatakan bahwa, setelah penyelidikan, Direktorat Intelijen berhasil menemukan keberadaan teroris berbahaya Sami al-Atrash di kota Arsal.

"Atrash memberondong patroli militer yang menggerebek lokasi di kota, dan meminta untuk menyerahkan diri," kata pernyataan itu dan menambahkan, "Ia kemudian tewas karena luka yang dideritanya dalam bentrokan itu.


"Teroris buronan yang terbunuh itu tertuduh mempersiapkan mobil bermuatan bom, menembakkan roket dan mortir di desa-desa dan kota-kota Libanon , menculik warga negara, terlibat dalam pembunuhan empat warga di Arsal di Wadi Rafeq dan beberapa tentara di Arsal di Wadi Hmayyed. Dia juga merencanakan untuk membunuh seorang perwira dengan bahan peledak," kata militer dalam sebuah pernyataan.

Sementara itu, NNA dalam laporannya melanjutkan, tentara melakukan serangan lain di Arsal dan menangkap para buronan bernama Ali Younis Ezzeddine dan saudaranya, Nasser Mohammed dan delapan warga Suriah.

Nama Sami al-Atrash disebutkan untuk pertama kalinya dalam laporan media dan menyebut ia bekerja sama dengan Sameh Breidi dalam mempersiapkan bom mobil pertama yang meledak di pinggiran selatan Beirut Bir al-Abed di kubu Hizbullah.

Bulan lalu, Hakim Investigasi Militer, Nabil Wehbe mengintrogasi seorang ulama Takfiri Sheikh Omar al-Atrash dan mengeluarkan surat perintah penangkapan untuknya.

Omar al-Atrash adalah sepupu dari Omar al- Atrash, tersangka utama dalam pemboman di Rweiss dan Bir al-Abed yang dilaporkan tewas dalam ledakan bom mobil saat fajar pada 11 Oktober 2013. [IT/Onh/Ass]

Sekelompok besar warga Ukraina dari kubu nasionalis sayap kanan berunjuk rasa di luar gedung parlemen di Kiev pada Kamis malam, 27/03/14, menghancurkan jendela dan menuntut pengunduran diri menteri dalam negeri, beberapa hari setelah polisi menembak mati salah satu pemimpin mereka.

Polisi pada hari Senin kemarin menembak mati Oleksandr Muzytchko, pemimpin regional Pravy Sektor (Sektor kanan), dalam baku tembak yang meletus dalam serangan penangkapannya di kota barat Rivne.

Pihak berwenang mengatakan, Muzytchko melepaskan tembakan pertama, dan terbunuh oleh peluru dari senjatanya sendiri.

Pravy Sektor memainkan peran penting dalam protes mematikan yang menumbangkan presiden pro-Moskow, Viktor Yanukovych bulan lalu, dan dicap sebagai organisasi neo-Nazi oleh pemerintah Rusia.

Para pendemo membawa bendera merah-dan- hitam khas bendera kelompok paramiliter. Menurut Agence France Presse (AFP), para pendemo itu dilaporkan mencapai 1.000 orang dan berunjuk rasa di dekat parlemen untuk menuntut pemecatan Menteri Dalam Negeri, Arsen Avakov.

Mereka menghancurkan beberapa jendela dan mengancam untuk memaksa masuk ke dalam gedung sebelum mundur dengan bersumpah untuk kembali menggelar demo pada Jumat pagi ini, (28/03/14).

Pravy Sektor pada Sabtu lalu membentuk sebuah partai politik dan memilih Dmytro Yarosh sebagai pemimpin nasional dan
mencalonkannya dalam pemilihan presiden Ukraina pada 25 Mei mendatang.

Menurut kantor berita Rusia, pemimpin yang dibunuh itu adalah pemimpin kelompok yang dicari di Rusia yang dituduh penyebab tewasnya sekitar 20 tentara Rusia saat berperang bersama separatis di Chechnya. [IT/Onh/Ass]

Yabrud after the fall

http://english.al-akhbar.com/photoblogs/yabrud-after-fall

Days after the capture of Yabrud by the Syrian army, fighters decide to to take a much needed break in the mostly deserted city. The city has never seen such devastation. Only a few families remain and the town is without electricity. Residents are eager to move back and go back to their former lives. All that remains of the opposition is just their slogans scribbled on the walls.
