A New Dawn: a Third Intifada

Lately, the violence in the besieged “Israeli”-occupied Palestinian territories had had a fair share of attention from various media outlets. Amidst the ongoing violence in the annexed Palestinian territories, al-Ahed News conducted an interview with author and Middle East affairs expert Saeb Sha’ath to tackle the latest developments regarding the ongoing Palestinian struggle against the “Israeli” occupation.

 

Sha'ath:Palestinian Youth have had it with the unbearable humiliating and very costly status quo

Saeb Sha’ath explains that the Intifada [uprising] usually starts to manifest itself through popular unorganized sporadic actions, as a result to the occupier’s continuous crimes against the people of Palestine; he admitted that “the status quo as a whole became unbearable and reached a breaking point”.

Sha’ath pointed out to the various crimes of the “Israeli” apartheid regime which are escalating by the day among which are the attempts to alter the status quo of the immense Muslim holy site of al-Haram al-Sharif and their attacks and desecrations of al-Aqsa Mosque.

Furthermore, the “Israeli” forces had recently demolished a great number of Palestinian houses in East al-Quds [Jerusalem] and were trying to push forth a bill for settlement expansion.

Not to mention, the land-grabbing and looting of Palestinian waters and natural resources by the “Israeli” regime in addition to subjecting the Gaza Strip to a continuous blockaded and a cycle of criminal wars of aggression.

Sha’ath indicated that the Palestine youth are hopeless given the light that they are the target of heavy-handed tactics.

“It became unacceptable to the youth of Palestine to be banned from their own streets, while the Zionist settlers enter Palestinian towns and villages, violate and loot them” he said.

Saeb Sha’ath interpreted that among the tactics are “carrying out political arrests against the Palestinians who protest the actions of the Zionist occupation”.

The Middle East expert assured that “we are witnessing an Intifada [uprising]. However to escalate, to advance and to continue its heroic struggle, it must command a unified popular support, which can only be achieve through the immediate formation of a unified national leadership to collectively lead the struggle and orchestrate the actions and activities of the popular resistance, in a manner that can make the Zionist occupation of Palestine very costly.”

When asked about the latest round of unrest in the Occupied Palestine, Sha’ath declared that there is “No going back”; he emphasized that “the Youth of the current Palestinian Intifada have had it with the unbearable humiliating and very costly status quo”.

Moreover, Sha’ath explained that the “Israeli” apartheid regime is “tempted to use the same formula of over a year ago, to attack parts of the occupied West Bank, and then wage another wave of their criminal genocidal campaigns of aggression on the Gaza Strip, to inflect more misery on the people of Palestine”.

He also shed light on the Arab as well as international neglect to the Palestinian cause noting that “Arab regimes are aiding the Zionist entity by putting pressure on the Palestine side”.

“For the USA and Western European countries, the Zionists entity’s violations of human rights or war crimes, matter little” he added.

Sha’ath concluded: “the official Zionist narrative will always be accepted, as facts among most western corporate media outlets. It’s a narrative defended by many Western decision-making institutions; to them the Palestinian resistance, rock throwers, bystanders, kids, the young or the elderly, are terrorists or potential terrorists”.

“That it is the substance of occupation, colonization and imperialism, which the unstoppable struggle of the Arab Palestinian people is determined to defeat” Sha’ath declared.

Who is behind the assassination of Iranian Scientists?

“NYT summarizes the “chilling message” that “American officials” want to send to Iranian top nuclear scientists with today’s assassination: “If we can get him, we can get you, too.” Indistinguishable from Mafia talk.”

US officials say Zionist entity “Israel” was behind the assassination: New York Times “One American official — along with two other intelligence officials — said that “Israel” was behind the attack on the scientist,” The New York Times reported on Friday.

Fakhrizadeh’s name was mentioned multiple times in a presentation in 2018 by Zionist entity “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, during which he repeated baseless claims about the Iranian nuclear program. Netanyahu described the scientist as the director of Iran’s nuclear program and threatened, “Remember that name, Fakhrizadeh.”

The Tel Aviv regime has made several attempts over the past years to throw a wrench in Tehran’s peaceful nuclear work. The regime has been behind the assassination of several Iranian nuclear scientists. It has also conduced cyberattacks on Iranian nuclear sites.

Dmitry Polyanskiy @Dpol_un “That’s a telling analysis from @nytimes reflecting readiness of US establishment to give green light to political extra territorial assasinations. Not a thing to boast for a democratic country! #Iran #Fakhrizadeh”.

The senior Iranian defense official was assassinated near the capital Tehran in a terrorist attack. In a statement, the Defense ministry said the vehicle of the head of the Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was targeted by terrorists.

The Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif said the act of cowardice shows the desperate warmongering of its perpetrators adding that there are serious indications of an Israeli role in the assassination. Zarif also urged the international community, especially the EU, to end QUOTE “their shameful double standards and condemn the Iranian defense official’s assassination.

Between 2010 and 2012, four other Iranian nuclear scientists were assassinated. Tehran and western intelligence agencies have long put the blame on Zionist entity “Israel”, an accusation that was never rejected by officials of the Israeli regime.

US president-elect Joe Biden and the Middle East

If Joe Biden rejoins the Iran nuclear ‎agreement ‎ and adopts Obama’s approach to the two-state ‎solution, with Palestine issue, which I believe he might do, since the ‎compromises made in the democratic party ‎between the Progressives ‎and the liberals during the ‎selection of the presidential candidate , indicated ‎that might be happening soon

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

Interview with Saeb Shaath, Author and Middle East affairs expert and David Yaghoubian, Prof. of History, CSU San Bernardino.

Iran FM advises US president-elect to abandon Trump’s ‘disastrous lawless bullying’.

Shaath Said: “Zionist entity Prime Minister Benjamin ‎Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince ‎Mohammed bin Salman have kept silent since ‎American media projected Biden’s will win.‎ We can recall the Netanyahu-Kushner plan ‎which believed in and relied on Trump’s victory ‎for the second term, that would be followed by ‎Netanyahu’s victory in the elections, aiming to ‎implement their deal of the century and the ‎normalization of Arab countries ties with the ‎Zionist’ entity,‎”

Shaath went to say :” it did not accrue to the planners that ‎Trump would become the only American ‎president in three decades not be elected to ‎serve a 2nd term in office.‎”

Shaath added “what might do away with their planes …I think Biden ‎will revive the nuclear agreement with Iran, ‎since it was an Obama- Biden’s admiration ‎achievement …he will do it in a way that avoids ‎any clash with Zionist entity.”

Shaathe went on t o say “‎ If Joe Biden rejoins the Iran nuclear ‎agreement ‎ and adopts Obama’s approach to the two-state ‎solution, with Palestine issue, which I believe he might do, since the ‎compromises made in the democratic party ‎between the Progressives ‎and the liberals during the ‎selection of the presidential candidate , indicated ‎that might be happening soon.‎”

Shaath added “That means everything that Netanyahu and ‎Kushnaier, dreamed about in making the ‎Zionist entity the pivotal state in the ‎Middle East with the Gulf States and the rest of ‎the Arabic countries as their satellite States ‎such dream is over. ‎ Since its clear that Biden needs to pay attention ‎and to focuses US resources on fighting covid-19 and ‎to Jump Startg the US economy”. ‎

‎ Shaath concluded “Since the Netanyahu – Kushner’s Deal of the ‎Century and Arab normalisation relation with ‎Zionist entity geared up to create a military ‎alliance to face Iran… Joe Biden with reviving the US commitment to the Iran nuclear agreement does not need such alliance…as well Joe does not have a Dime to waist on Netanyahu’s dreams. ..This is the new way we going to see it happening in the region.”
