The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.

Press TV: The Bahraini regime claims that it is not sectarian; yet, it is attacking Shia Muslims during this very important time of Muharram. How do you see that situation?

Shaath: We know most of the Bahraini human rights activists are behind bars right now. And every citizen in Bahrain who is actively seeking the removal of such a feudal sectarian regime, [is] vulnerable to false accusations of terrorism, which practically means that the regime can jail, exile and strip them of their citizenship as well.

The al-Khalifa regime forces are more and more involved in targeting even kids. Last month they killed a teenage boy, accusing him of terrorism.

Al-Khalifa is a feudal system as well, this war they are carrying it on school kids using the Bahraini education ministry to profile them  and then  arrest the kids from schools , instead of the education system saving  these kids from the brutal activities of the army and the police.

Al-Khalifa’s policies are tribalistfeudalist, sectarian and fascist as well. We believe that their family or tribe  owns all Bahrain,own the country; and that its their private property – that’s what they believe.

And all the people of Bahrain reside there only with the permission and generosity of the Sheikh, or the king, as they call him, to serve the tribe.

That’s why they came to strip people of their nationality, which is in violations of international human rights treaties. We notice not even one Western force coming out and condemning that.

Such tribalist beliefs and feudalist beliefs and its mechanisms beliefs of owning a state and territory and emirate with these tribes and families is well established in the Arabian peninsula. Countries like the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia itself, this system was actually installed and supported by the British Empire to secure their interests and to secure their puppets.

This is the Western hegemony of the region depends on such regional puppets, that works in harmony with our enemy, Israel, to protect the British interests and now the American interests as well.  Since The American Empire inherited the British Empire after establishing such puppets.

From there we can see even if we want to look at the international and human rights – so-called international and other human rights organizations – covering abuses that occur in Bahrain…

Bahrain ignored them since the regime got the occupation forces of Saudi Arabia, they got the involvement of the West in backing them, they can see London and Washington’s full military and political support with public relations working in full swing to enhance the Al Khalifa regime image.

The US’s theft of the Syrian crude oil

Shaath: The American company Delta Crescent Energy LLC, ‎made a deal with the Kurdish forces S.D.F . Now both the US forces and their stooges the S.D.F ‎are looting the Syrian crude oil in all Hasakeh ‎province.

U.S. IS LOOTING OIL FIELDS IN NORTHEASTERN SYRIA

This edition of the Debate is about the US’s theft of the Syrian crude oil. The Trump administration has contradicted its own statement by smuggling Syrian oil into Iraq.

Syrian President Bashar al Assad has told Russia’s Sputnik news agency that the presence of American and Turkish forces on Syrian soil amounts to occupation and must come to an end. President Assad also censured the West for creating and supporting terrorist groups like Daish. Assad urged the international community to pile pressure on Western forces to leave Syria.

Shaath: The American company Delta Crescent Energy LLC, ‎made a deal with the Kurdish forces S.D.F . Now both the US forces and their stooges the S.D.F ‎are looting the Syrian crude oil in all Hasakeh ‎province.

Shaath confirmed that : The American company involved in the northeast ‎Syria deal has received an exemption from the U.S. ‎Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets ‎Control to operate in Syria. That means no ‎sanctions and the company got a White house ‎approval ‎.

Shaath : Since Trump declared that he is intending on ‎pulling forces out of Syria…but after the partial U.S. ‎troop withdrawal from northeast Syria in October ‎‎2019, Trump said he is keeping some forces there “to ‎secure the oil.”‎

Shaath : The Kurdish S.D.F ‎militants are assisting the US in looting the ‎Syrian oil, at some stage the US will be forced to ‎pull totally out of Syria.‎ When the U.S. pulls out of Syria, as I believe soon it ‎will be under way, The US will abandon its Kurdish S.D.F ‎militants in Northeast Syria.‎

UAE stabbed Palestine in back by normalising with Zionist entity ‘Israel’

Abbas :You cannot take our place…Palestine speaks in its own name. She is who will say ‘yes’ or ‘no’

SaebPress

on Tuesday, the Palestinian leadership held a meeting in West bank city of Ramallah, which was also attended by representatives of different Palestinian factions, including Islamic Jihad and Hamas.

Abbas condemned the UAE’s decision to normalise ties with Zionist entity”Israel”, saying it was a “stab in the back of the Palestinian people.”

Abbas accused the UAE of turning its back on Palestinians while trying to justify the deal with Zionist entity “Israel” by arguing it helped stop West bank annexations.

“They added the term annexation and attempted to give the others and the world the illusion that the UAE had come up with a great achievement for us and that is the rejection of annexation, as if the Palestinian issue is only about annexation while they disregard everything else: the rights of the Palestinian people, the Palestinian state, the two-state vision, holy Jerusalem [al-Quds]….This is deception, and this is totally unacceptable. We consider it a stab in the back of the Palestinian cause,” he emphasised.

Abbas also stressed that only the Palestinians have the right to speak on the Palestine issue. 

“You cannot can take our place…Palestine speaks in its own name. She is who will say ‘yes’ or ‘no’. You [are] not responsible for the Palestinian cause, we alone, the Palestinians here, will speak on behalf of the Palestinian cause,” he said.

Palestinians ‘united against conspiracy’

Additionally, Abbas hailed the presence of representative from different Palestinian factions at Tuesday’s meeting as a show of unity.

“I welcome our brothers in Hamas, Jihad, General Command and Al-Saiqa who are here today. This indicates that the Palestinian people are united against the conspiracy, regardless of the differences between us, but in adversity we stand together and have on position against anyone who wants to attack our cause,” he said.

Abbas reminded the Arab countries that based on the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative any normalisation with Zionist entity “Israel” should come after an agreement is reached between the Palestinians and Tel Aviv, and not the other way around.

“Some countries have begun moving, both openly and in secret…this is rejected, and we the Palestinians will continue to absolutely reject this, no matter which country does this. You must respect the decisions on which you have signed off,” he said.

On Tuesday, “Israeli” media cited Sudanese foreign ministry spokesman as announcing an “impending” normalisation agreement with Tel Aviv. Sudan’s acting foreign minister, however, denied knowledge of such talks with Zionist entity “Israel”.
