Sources Reject Reports on Putin's Demand for Iran's Withdrawal from Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- Sources in Syria's presidential office dismissed media claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin has demanded Iran to withdraw its military advisors from Syria.

Quoting the Russian officials, the sources told the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen newspaper on Sunday that Putin's remarks did not include the Russian forces and Iranian advisors who are in Syria at the demand of the legal government and they will leave the country whenever Damascus demands.

Putin and his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad held a meeting in Syria in Sochi earlier this week during which Putin said that the foreign forces will leave Syria after the Syrian army's victory against the terrorist groups and the start of political process in the country.

In relevant remarks in December, Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani reiterated his country's firm decision to continue its military advisory role in Syria until all terrorist groups are uprooted.

"We will continue presence and providing advisory services in Syria until annihilation of all terrorist groups in the country at the demand of the legal Syrian government," Shamkhani said, addressing a forum in the Western province of Kurdistan.

He underlined that allegations against Iran by Israel or other countries would never tilt the country's calculations and decisions in pursuit of its national interests and establishment of regional security.

The Lies They Say About Post-War Reconstruction in Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- First things first: The Syrian government which liberated so many cities and towns from foreign-backed terrorist groups of ISIL and Al-Qaeda – with a helping hand from Iran, Russia and Hezbollah – has no plans whatsoever to confiscate homes and lands of those who fled the once terror-held areas. There is no ‘New Land Law' for it either.

Still, that hasn’t stopped ‘fakestream’ media outlets in the West and the Arab world to claim otherwise. They claim that a new urban development law in Syria has put the onus on citizens, millions of whom are displaced, to prove ownership of their homes − or potentially risk losing them to postwar developments - and government supporters.

This is while the full implications of Law 10 of 2018 are yet to be seen. There are provisions allowing distant relatives to register properties for absentee landlords, allowing for flexibility. However, there is no conflict between government loyalists and opponents, nor should this be a cause for anxiety - especially among those forced to abandon their homes in areas where foreign-backed terrorist groups have now been crushed. Under the law and through legal channels, people are free to return to their homes as their rights will be protected as soon the nationwide reconstruction efforts begin.

Indeed, it is silly to argue that those who can prove ownership will still lose their homes because of their political affiliations or activities. No government entity is going to steal any private property and no civilians will ever get arrested just because they want to return to their homes. Syria has already proved otherwise in thousands of cases, where thousands of militants have applied for government amnesty and have return home along with the families across the country.

Into the argument, and according to the Syrian government officials and entities, those who have left the country, or those who have been internally displaced (over 6.6. million), can ask their families and relatives to register their properties using the necessary paperwork, and keep the hope of return alive. True, it will be a complicated process, but no one is going to scuttle this process deliberately, much less put such legal claims in jeopardy. Those who possess the proper paperwork can and should secure their home as per a new presidential decree, that’s according to the Syrian Interior Ministry.

The political interpretation is that the government seeks to rebuild the country and it will need all the help it can get from the international community and its own people. Besides, no one in the government has ever said that Damascus plans to alienate its own people, much less recoup the land of the displaced and redistribute it to those close to the government so they can rebuild new neighborhoods. Such baseless allegations are there to ensure further divisions inside Syria and deeper distrust among the general public.

Irrespective of media shenanigans in the West and the Arab world, the people of Syria should help their government to rebuild post-conflict Syria. Their efforts and investment in rebuilding Syria will bolster their domestic market and economy and heighten international competition over their own future. Such unity would also prevent the de-facto partition of Syria and any return to its pre-war unevenly- developed status.

The government and the people should take steps to prevent Syria from sliding backwards economically and prevent Syria from unbalanced development. They can seek help from their allies and the international community to leverage reconstruction assistance as a tool for jumpstarting reconciliation talks between the opposition parties and the government as well, and convene multi-track dialogues on development with various stakeholders to ensure reconstruction is consistent across the country.

People are the hope for rebuilding Syria and the government cannot do this alone. That’s a fact. They should never allow any chance of renewed violence and division, nor should they ever let national reconstruction efforts and plans pave the way for an open-ended American military occupation and dominance. Their unity and resolve could tip the scale toward the Syrian people and government.

サウジ皇太子MBSにやはり異変があったらしい

サウジのクラウンプリンスMBSが公の場に現れなくなったことから死亡説が浮上しましたが、いったんは4/21以降に子供向けアトラクション施設の開場式に出席した画像が流れ、死亡説は正しくないとの説が強まりました。

しかし、5/19に行われた軍事大学の卒業式に国防大臣でもあるMBSの姿が見えなかったことから、憶測が再燃しています。サウジ国内のみならず世界中が注目するMBSの消息ですが、サウジ国王は何も発言していません。

サウジ国王は、実子のMBSに王位を継がせるために王族内で話をつけたとされていますが、継承権をはく奪された皇太子とその親族の不満と反発は強いものがあるはずですし、MBSがクラウンプリンスになった後、汚職摘発と称して他の王族をホテルに閉じ込め拷問もしたとの話も流れています。

サウジの王位継承者は、米国が実質的に決めるとの説もあり、MBSはトランプに献金をしたりしています。イラク、シリアのテロリストの最大のスポンサーはサウジで、この費用やイエメン戦争の費用がかさんでサウジは国家財政の危機に陥っています。

MBSは対イラン強硬派であり、他方でイスラエルと急接近しています。

MBSが死んだとなれば、王位継承者の選定からやり直しになりますし、米国やイスラエルがサウジに対してこれまでのようなキャッシュディスペンサーの役回りを期待できるのか不透明な面も出てくるでしょう。イスラエルVSイランを軸とした現在の対立の構図が変わることもありえます。

サウジ国王は健康状態が良くないとされています。王位を継がせようと困難を押して王位継承権の地位につかせた皇太子が死ぬ、あるいは精神的に異常をきたすとなると、現国王にとってはこの上ない悲劇になります。

TEHRAN (FNA)- Saudi Crown Prince and Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman who has not appeared in the public after the April 21 coup in his palace continues to be absent in public gatherings and was not seen among a host of Riyadh officials at the cadets graduation ceremony in King Abdolaziz military college on Saturday night either.

The Saudi defense ministry announced in a statement on Sunday that Riyadh ruler Faisal bin Bandar bin Abdolaziz has attended the ceremony instead of bin Salman.

The statement declined to comment on the reason of bin Salman's absence while naturally the defense minister should participate in such ceremonies.

Last Thursday, an Iranian daily reported that bin Salman is likely dead after an assassination attempt on his life last month, claiming intel from the security service of an Arab state.
(略)
Saudi Arabia, the world’s top oil exporter, has witnessed a series of radical political changes over the past year as Mohammed bin Salman ousted his cousin as crown prince and jailed well-known princes in an anti-corruption purge.

Moreover, bin Salman oversees social and economic reforms that have been censured by several powerful Wahhabi clerics.

Notably, bin Salman made no media appearance during the April 28 visit of the newly-appointed US State Secretary Mike Pompeo to Riyadh, his first foreign trip as the top US diplomat.

During his stay in Riyadh, Saudi media outlets published images of Pompeo’s meetings with King Salman and Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir.

This is while the state-run outlets used to publish images of meetings in Riyadh between bin Salman and former US secretary of state Rex Tillerson.

It is not clear if bin Salman’s disappearance is due to reasons such as him feeling threatened or being injured in the incident.

Saudi Concerns Growing over Fate of MBS as People Start Asking His Whereabout
TEHRAN (FNA)- Unofficial reports on the death of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman after the last month coup have gathered pace after his month-long absence from the public as Hashtag وفاة_ولی_العهد (#Death-of-Crown-Prince) has gone viral in the country suggesting that the prince has succumbed to his injuries sustained during the coup.

Bin Salman has not been seen in the public since April 21 attack on his palace in Riyadh which has raised speculations about his injury and death.

Yousef al-Hazeri, an Arab social media activist, wrote in his twitter account that "if bin Salman's death is true, it means that Trump has this time used up the milking cow just like a traveling shampoo and threw it into the sinkhole".

The country’s Ministry of Health attributed the incident to spring rain across the mountainous regions of the country, and issued a warning advising people to “avoid eating wild and unfamiliar mushrooms,” and refrain from even touching them because “skin toxicity is present in some species of fungi.”

Authorities advised the public not to buy mushrooms from street vendors. Those who experience abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, or severe dizziness are advised to drink a lot of fluids and visit a health center immediately.

Saudi King Absent in OIC Meeting on Palestine, Amman Publicizes Differences with Riyadh

Saudi King Absent in OIC Meeting on Palestine, Amman Publicizes Differences with Riyadh
TEHRAN (FNA)- The extraordinary meeting of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Palestine was held in Istanbul on Friday in the absence of Saudi King Salman, while Jordan's king looked undeterred to show narrowing differences with Qatar, Turkey and Iran and distancing his country from Saudi, UAE, Bahraini policy of rapprochement with Israel.

The declaration issued at the end of the OIC conference described the US decision to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem al-Quds as "unlawful" which could “trigger chaos in the region".

“We reaffirmed once again the vital importance of preserving the sanctity and historical status of Al-Quds and Haram Al-Sharif for the whole Muslim Ummah, emphasizing that the Muslim Ummah could strongly defend its causes globally only by acting in unity and solidarity,” the declaration signed by 48 countries said.

During the conference held in the absence of the Saudi King and PA president, Jordanian King Abdullah II sat beside Qatari Emir Tamim bin Ahmed al-Thani, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Analysts believe that the move indicates Jordan's different stance with Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain which are rapidly moving towards normalization of ties with Israel.

Meantime, the Jordanian media said that King Abdullah II and the Qatari king have had intimate talks during the conference.

Addressing the conference, the Jordanian king said that "the violence, aggression, and violations perpetrated by Israel against the brotherly Palestinian people in Gaza and elsewhere in the Palestinian Territories must stop. The international community must uphold its responsibilities before history; peoples of the world and all people of conscience must uphold their responsibilities in protecting the Palestinian people and enabling them to gain their rights and end occupation, injustice, and despair".

S. Arabia Starts New Wave of Arrests over Ties with Israel

S. Arabia Starts New Wave of Arrests over Ties with Israel
TEHRAN (FNA)- Saudi authorities have arrested several activists for denouncing the industrious efforts made by Riyadh, particularly those of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, to normalize diplomatic relations with Israel.

The Arabic-language al-Quds al-Arabi newspaper quoted social media activists as saying that the Saudi authorities have last Thursday detained two male activists named Dr. Mohammad al-Rabi'eh and Dr. Ibrahim al-Madimiq and four female activists, including Lajin al-Hazloul, Azizeh al-Yousef, Iman al-Nafjan and Noureh Faqih, who are all against Riyadh's attempts to normalize relations with Israel.

Also, Abdollah al-Qamedi, a Saudi activist living in Britain, said that the Saudi authorities have imprisoned his mother and brother for over 50 years with permission to visit family members.

In a relevant report in February, Qatar’s Arabic-language al-Arab newspaper, reported that Saudi forces detained Noha al-Balawi, a female activist, over a post she published on her Twitter page, criticizing normalization of ties with Israel.

Balawi, wearing a niqab in the video, stated that Israeli-Saudi relations would only serve the interests of the Tel Aviv regime, and would be to the detriment of Arab nations.

Speaking in an interview with France 24 television news network on December 13, 2017, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said the kingdom had a “roadmap” to establish full diplomatic ties with the Tel Aviv regime.

In mid-November last year, a Lebanese paper published a secret document that showed that the Saudis were willing to normalize relations with Israel as part of a US-led Israeli-Palestinian peace effort and unite Saudi-allied countries against Iran.

The document, published by al-Akhbar daily, was a letter from the Saudi foreign minister to bin Salman, explaining why it was in the kingdom’s interest to normalize relations with Israel. The letter said a rapprochement between Saudi Arabia and Israel has risks for the kingdom due to the strength of the Palestinian cause among Muslims.

The Saudis' willingness to boost ties with Israel has offended several Arab countries, including Jordan.

As for the Palestinian refugee issue, the letter says the Saudis would be willing to help the estimated five million Palestinian refugees worldwide settle in the host countries rather than being brought back to the occupied Palestinian territories.

US to Support Kurds in Manbij against Turkey

US to Support Kurds in Manbij against Turkey
TEHRAN (FNA)- Kurdish sources reported on Saturday that the US forces have underlined in their meetings with the Kurdish officials that they will remain in Manbij as differences have widened between the American and Turkish militaries over the presence of Kurdish forces in the town.

The Kurdish-language Hawar news quoted the military command council of Manbij as saying that a meeting was held between an official delegation of the US-led coalition forces' command center and a number of Kurdish commanders in Manbij.

The meeting on the political and security situation of Manbij was held in the presence of William Urback, a representative of the US state department, Commander of the US-led coalition General Jimmy Gerrard, Commander of the Kurdish forces in Manbij Mohammad Mostafa, Spokesman for Manbij's military council affiliated to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Sharfan Darwish and Deputy Commander of Manbij military council Ibrahim Banawi.

It added that the US forces have underlined their continued presence in cooperation with the Manbij military council until they prevail control over the entire region.

Meantime, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has several times threatened that he will send his forces to Manbij after driving out the Kurds from Afrin.

Darwish had announced earlier this month that the US forces have set up a new military base in Manbij in Northern Syria at the borders with Turkey.

He said that the French forces have been stationed in the military base with the aim of monitoring and protecting the borders, adding that the base has been established immediately after the Turkish army and its allies' attacks on the Kurdish forces in Afrin and Ankara's repeated threats to enter Manbij.

Experts say military assessments show that establishment of a new military base in Manbij that comes in the backdrop of US President Donald Trump's pullout pledge will exacerbate tensions between Washington and Ankara.

日本社会の秘密 中年を見たら浅薄なネツトウヨだと思え 2

2018/5/19、横浜にてさんから寄せられた投稿を掲載する。引用開始。

安保法や9条の街頭署名をしていると絡んでくるのが、この年齢層です。
そう言えば、わざわざ若い人が絡んでくることはなかったです。(無関心なだけ?)

私の感覚では、ネットは使えないけどもう少し高齢者(80代など)も多いのでは?
「中国が攻めてくるから9条は変えなきゃダメ」とかよく言ってきますね。
戦争の時は子どもで、たまたまさほど大変な思いもせずに通り抜けてしまった人達かも。

自分の両親からも「戦争は絶対にしてはいけない」と言われた覚えはないです。
肯定はしてないと思いますが、絶対にダメとまでは思っていない老人って結構いるように思います。もう、自分は行かないからかな?

「孫には戦争に行かせる。」と言ってたおじいさんもいました。
何かの修練みたいに思ってるのでは? 老人だから想像力があるなんてことはないです。

どれだけ、自分のこととして考えてきたかで決まるわけで、話をすると、小学生のほうがずっと理解力があったりします。

・・・引用終わり・・・

お書きになったこと私は良く分かります。

「絡んでくるのが、この年齢層です」
この年代層は、日々変わっている世界情勢などが理解できていないのではないでしょうか。特に、歴史と関連付けた現代の位置づけなど。

日本人は歴史の年表的な勉強はするでしょうが、なぜそうなったのかという歴史のダイナミズムは学校では教えません。

卒業してもそんな議論に触れずとも社会人として通用します。加えて、外国人と接することもない。

ですから「安保法や9条の街頭署名をしている」人がいると不審な行動、自分の理解を越えた活動をしている人として不安に思うのだと思います。

「中国が攻めてくるから9条は変えなきゃダメ」
という人は、自分たちが先の大戦中にやったことをある程度知っている?

経済的な相互依存関係が強まっているのにそんなことをしたら共倒れです。これも時間が止まっているのでしょうね。

「もう、自分は行かないから」というのはありますね。私の友人は、何ごとにつけても自分は逃げられるか、逃げ切れるかという観点から見ていました。付き合い辞めましたけど。

中年以上の人は、自分が戦場に送られることはないと思っているでしょう。確かに日本の中年以上の男女は戦場では使えません。体力的にも兵器等の操作技術でも。

「孫には戦争に行かせる。」と言ってたじいさんは、何かの修練みたいに思ってる面もありましょうし、いざとなれば、親をさて置いて爺さんが決めることなどできないことを見込んだ発言です。

「どれだけ、自分のこととして考えてきたかで決まる」
そこです。私が徘徊の際に出会って話す人は、自分で考えている人です。そうでない人は、一言、二言言葉を交わせば分かります。別に政治の話をするわけではありませんが、話がかみ合いません。

日本の中年以上の人たちは、テレビによる白痴化が進んでいるか、愚民政策の優等生であることを誇りにしています。

・・・・・

以下は、SYさんのコメント。皆さん、日本の老人に手厳しいですね。引用開始。

高度経済成長の恩恵を最も受けた人たちでもありますね。
それも宗主国礼賛につながっているし、自分たちの実力だったかのように錯覚している。
差別感情も半端ない、まったくもって倒錯した感覚の集団です。

生活に苦労している若者はもう目が覚めたと思います。
戦争に行かなくても、徹底的に搾取されることはわかりきっています。
死なない限り逃げることはできません。

それとも(自分たちは? 若者は? みんな?)死ねばいいとでも思っているのかな?
だとしたら、人間のクズですね。いい歳をして哀しいことですが
救い様がないので放置するしかありません。
