In a long interview with Al-Arabiya, the former Minister of Defense of Iraq Hazim al-Shaalan al-Khuzaei – who was also Governor of Al-Qādisiyyah Province in 2003 – reveals how Iranian regime started his meddling in the Iraqi internal affairs and how is also exploiting today the Iraqi territory, to achieve its geopolitical goals. Al-Khuzaei said that, the attempt of Iran to meddling in the Iraqi affairs, started long time ago.

One of the key man in this project was the Iraqi Shia cleric Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr, executed by Saddam Hussein in 1980. For al-Khuzaei, al-Sadr was killed by Saddam after a decision of Iran. Al-Sadr, in a radio interview with Tehran, had expressed his will to leave Iraq, to save the life of his son, who was sick. In that interview, the interviewer reacted saying that they (the Iranians) wanted him to remain there, in order to bring the Islamic revolution also in Iraq. Al-Kuzaei, thinks that this was the prove that Iran has sold al-Sadr to Saddam, in the moment in which it was not useful.

After the fall of the Saddam’s regime, Iran has started to sent thousands of Afghan in Iraq. Here, they receive the military training, before going to fight in Syria for Bashar al Assad. Today many of these Afghans, are living in Iraqi using documents of dead Iraqis.

Hazim al-Shaalan al-Khuzaei (who is a Shiite) told that in 2003, when he was Governor of Al-Qādisiyyah, a person came to him and said that the Iranians have requested the permission to bring 500 people in Najaf, to collect the rubbish. Between them there was also Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who became after the Mayor of Tehran. Using the excuse of the cleaning of the holy city, these Iranian men – who were Basij – have distributed book in order to attract young people to the Iranian version of the Shia Islam.

Speaking about the actuality, Hazim al-Shaalan al-Khuzaei  said tha Iran is using Iraq to have a direct connection with Syria and with the Mediterranean sea. Bashar al-Assad, unlike is father, is completely in the hands of the Iranian regime. The former Iraqi Defense Minister also revealed that, since 2005, almost all the weapons and material that Iran sent for Hezbollah, have passed through Iraq. He also added that, in his opinion, Iran is responsible for the rise of al-Qaeda (and after Isis) in Iraq, because it has given its territory to the terrorists of Osama Bin Laden, in order to use them in Iraq.  

At the end of the interview, al-Khuzaei accused Iran of printing false Dinar, and to spread them in Iraq.

In an interview given to the reformist journalist Hussein Dehbashi – and published also on Youtube – the famous Iranian filmmaker Mohammad Nourizad, attacked again the regime and its foreign policy. In the interview, Nourizad said that, before the Iranian revolution of 1979, the Arabs never interfered in the Iranian internal policy. He said that it was the decision to export the Shiism, which caused the creation of the Sunni terrorists organizations like al-Qaeda and Boko Haram. Nourizad attacked also the Iranian intervention in Syria and described Hezbollah as a terrorist organization and its Secretary Hassan Nasrallah, as a murderer. For the Iranian filmmaker – well known for his anti-regime positions – the export of arms to Hezbollah for the fights in Syria is “haram”. Nourizad also said that the Saudi King Salman is more wise, intelligent and popular than thousands of Iranian leaders.

Iran granted to Hamas 27 million dollars!

An anonymous source of the al-Qassam Brigades – the armed wing of Hamas – said that during the “Sixth International Conference in Support of the Palestinian Intifada” (held in Tehran in February 2017), the Iranian regime has granted to Hamas a financial support of 27 million dollars. Practically, the money arrived to Hamas via Hezbollah, after a meeting organized in Beirut.

The relations of Iran with Hamas it’s ambivalent: for one side, Tehran has good relations with leaders like Mahmoud al-Zahar and the new head of Hamas in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar. Both of them considered hardliners. On the other side, Iran has negative relations with political leaders of Hamas like Khaled Meshaal, who was the head of the Political Bureau until few weeks ago (in these days Isma’il Hanyeh was elected has his successor).

Recently the Iranian regime has criticized the approbation of the new Chart of Hamas in which, the media reported, the Palestinian terrorist group recognized Israel between 1967 borders. After the criticism, the Hamas’s representative in Iran Khalid Qaddoumi clarified that Hamas does not recognize Israel and remains committed to the liberation of Palestine “from the sea to the (Jordan) river”.

Hamas it seems divided inside, between a maximalist line – which wants to maintain close ties with Iran and Hezbollah – and between a “political” line, which is waiting for Trump’s action to rebuild strong ties between United States and the Sunni Arab countries.
