Visiting Kuwait, the Iraqi President Fuad Masum said that his country is ready to develop the relations with Saudi Arabia. President Masum revealed that, before leaving Iraq, he went in Najaf and met with Ayatollah al-Sistani. The notorious Shia cleric asked him to maintain the neutrality of Iraq in the Gulf’s diplomatic crisis, and gave him his blessing for a next visit in Saudi Arabia. During the meeting with the Sheikh Sabah IV Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Emir of Kuwait, the two parts agreed on the developing of the relations between Baghdad and Kuwait city, serving the interests of the two “brotherly peoples”.
In order to exploit the business opportunity with Qatar and the diplomatic crisis in the Gulf, the Iranian traders have exported to Doha damaged goods and rotten food. As admitted also by the Director of the Shiraz airport, Tehran was forced to stop the shipping to Qatar, because the fruit and vegetables destined to the Arab country contained mud and were put in unhealthy cardboard boxes. Worse: the Qatari Ministry of Health denounced that the fruits imported from Iran have chemical origin, and were sent to Doha by cargos without any supervision. The result was that the Qatari people have received toxin food from Iran!

While the Iraqi Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr is visiting the United Arab Emirates, the Iranian regime is planning to eliminate him. It seems that, after the meeting between al-Sadr and the Saudi king Salman in Riyadh, Tehran has decided that the Iraqi leader has gone too far and it is time to replace him. To achieve this goal, the Iranian regime is spreading rumors that al-Sadr and his close advisors were spies of the Saddam’s regime in the past. There are also plans to assassinate him if necessary (but for the moment Iran has decided to avoid this step, in order to avoid clashes between Shiites in Iraq.
In the meantime, during the visit in Abu Dhabi, Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan has expressed to al-Sadr his concerns about the Iranian interference in the region and underlined “the importance of investing in a national building that brings together all Iraqis”. It seems that, in Tehran, there are some supports of al-Sadr who are working to easy the dispute.

Speaking with the Iranian press agency Mehr news in the occasion of the Qods Day, which will be held in Iran tomorrow, Hamas representative Mahmoud al-Zahar praised Imam Khomeini, describing him as a person respected and loved by all the Islamic community. Al-Zahar attacked the Arab countries which are demonstrating to be ready to normalize the relations with Israel: he accused them of selling the Palestinian issue and to permit the loss of Jerusalem. The Hamas’s representative underlined that, despite the attempt to normalize the relations with Israel, this normalization will fail because “the Zionist entity has no historical relations with the Region”. Finally, he asks to Iran to create an army to liberate Jerusalem.

Recently the Iranian media published videos of Qassem Soleimani, head of the Qods Force, while visiting and praying in the border between Iraq and Syria. During this travel, Soleimani has chosen to be escorted by the members of the Fatemyoun Division, the militia created by the Pasdaran and composed by Afghan fighters, belonging to the Hazara ethnic group.
Why? The website al-Quds al-Arabi, a pan-Arab daily newspaper printed in London, writes that the decision to be escorted by the Afghans, was taken by Soleimani in order to send a message to Saudi Arabia and to the Prime Minister of Iraq al-Abadi, who is visiting Riyadh today: he wanted to said that Iran is an empire, capable to reach an influence which goes from Lebanon to Afghanistan, passing also through the Gulf (the article speaks about the case of Bahrain).
On the top, the video of Soleimani praying during his visit to the border between Iraq and Syria.
This Saudi video shows Qatar “fished” by an Iranian cleric. The meaning is clear: Doha is fallen in the Tehran’s trick, which is trying to exploit the crisis between GCC and Qatar.
