Iranian President: The U.S. Will Suffer A Humiliating Defeat This Weekend

Speaking in a Wednesday cabinet session, President Hassan Rouhani said Washington failed in its attempts to reinstate a United Nations arms embargo as well as international sanctions on Iran, and these failures amount to major victories for Iran. Rouhani added that the U.S. would “suffer a humiliating defeat this weekend.”

“The US suffered ignominious defeats,” he said. “Our people should pay attention. This Saturday and Sunday will be days of the Iranian nation’s victory and days of humiliating defeats for the U.S,” he added according to Iran Front Page News.

 

“So, I urge anti-Iran news channels abroad not to fabricate stories that would indicate that the U.S. has made a claim and has waited for a month, so it can use this mechanism,” the president said. “After all, no mechanism ever started in the first place to be producing any results,” he added.

“I congratulate the Iranian nation, in advance, on the success that Iranians will secure on Saturday and Sunday, the same way that I congratulated Iranians on their resistance during the eight-year Iraqi imposed war on Iran [in the 1980s],” he added.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the president fulminated against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain for normalizing their relations with Israel. “[Israeli authorities] are committing more and more crimes in occupied Palestine every day. How come [the UAE and Bahrain] are extending your hands to Israel? Then you want to give Israel bases in this region. You will be responsible for all grave consequences of this move. Your action is against regulations and regional security,” he said.

A month ago, mainstream media in the U.S. declared that Trump has suffered a “humiliating defeat” at the UN in his efforts to impose sanctions on Iran.

US efforts to indefinitely extend an arms embargo collapsed last week when it suffered a humiliating defeat at the UN Security Council. A resolution sponsored by Washington only secured one other vote from the 15-member UN Security Council.

The US continues to maintain that despite its unilateral withdrawal it nonetheless has “an explicit right” to initiate the snapback sanctions and that any argument to the contrary would “create a perilous precedent that could threaten the force of virtually any Security Council decision.”- Middle East Monitor, 8/20/2020

Hopefully, this doesn’t elude to a war. It’s important information, however. Stay alert and aware. If history has shown us anything, it’s that things will get crazy as the rhetoric ramps up.

When Gaza City became a ghost town

The nickname became increasingly relevant lately. The shutdown of Gaza’s only power plant meant that lights often could not be switched on at nighttime.

“I used to meet up with friends in the evening hours,” said Ahmad Khalid, 29, during the power outages. “But with the electricity crisis, I hate going out of the house now and seeing darkness everywhere. It’s as if we are ghosts walking in the street.”

The crisis was caused because Israel banned fuel deliveries to Gaza’s power station last month.

‘Dying to Fish’: How Israeli Piracy Destroyed Gaza’s Once Thriving Fishing Industry

On August 16, the Israeli navy declared the Gaza sea a closed military zone. A few days later, a group of Gaza fishermen decided to take their chances by fishing within a mere two or three nautical miles off the Gaza shore. No sooner had they cast their nets, Israeli navy bullets began whizzing all around them.

Soon after the incident, I spoke with one of these fishermen. His name is Fathi.

“My wife, my eight children and I, we all live off fishing. The Israeli navy shot at us today and asked us to leave the sea. I had to return to my family empty-handed, without any fish to sell and nothing to give to my children,” Fathi told me.

This fisherman’s story is typical. According to the Israeli rights group B’tselem, “about 95% of fishermen in Gaza live below the poverty line”.

“This is How Armed Gangs Operate” Israel Admits its Troops Planted IEDs in a Palestinian Town

Aseven-year-old Palestinian boy was walking with his mother just outside the West Bank village of Kafr Qaddum a few miles to west of the city of Nablus. Seeing a strange orange and black package held down with some rocks, the boy approached, thinking it was a toy. His mother quickly stopped him, summoning a relative to investigate. Foolishly, the man shook the package and it exploded, injuring his face and hands.

Along the popular path they found another device, this time photographing it and throwing stones at it until it too exploded.

Qatari envoy travels to Gaza to help ease tensions amid Israeli raids

A Qatari envoy has visited the Gaza Strip to help calm down tensions in the blockaded enclave, which has been the scene of daily Israeli attacks for more than two weeks.

Mohammed el-Emadi entered Gaza late on Tuesday for negotiations to help ease the tensions, AFP reported.

Since August 6, the regime has been carrying out daily airstrikes and occasional ground attacks against Gaza in response to what it calls the launch of balloons fitted with “incendiary devices” from the direction of coastal enclave.

Concomitantly, it has shut down Kerem Shalom, the crossing bringing in the majority of the enclave’s requirements, and completely cut off supplies of fuel to the territory. The combined measures have brought about a closure of Gaza’s sole power plant.

1100-year-old gold coins unearthed in occupied Palestine

A treasure trove, including hundreds of gold coins dating back to around 1,100 years ago, has been discovered during excavations in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The collection of 425 early Islamic, 24-carat gold coins was unearthed by teenage volunteers on August 18 during an excavation in the occupied territories.

The coins have been found in an area which once housed the Palestinian village of Yibna, which had a population of 5,420 in 1948. However, it was taken by Israeli forces on 4 June 1948, and was depopulated during the occupation and expulsion.

The gold coins date back to the late 9th century at the height of the once-powerful Abbasid Caliphate, which controlled a lion’s share of the Near East and North Africa.

Israel cuts fuel, Gaza goes dark

The Gaza Strip’s only power plant shut down on Tuesday after Israel stopped the transfer of fuel to the territory.

The halting of fuel transfers is among a series of collective punishment measures Israel has imposed on Gaza.

Israel has claimed the measures are a response to incendiary balloons released from Gaza. The launching of such balloons by some Palestinians is, in reality, a symbolic effort to draw attention to the deteriorating situation in Gaza, long subject to an Israeli siege.

Although incendiary balloons caused several fires in Israel, “no injuries or damage have been reported,” according to The Jerusalem Post.

Israel has also bombed Gaza on an almost a daily basis over the past week.

How Israel Wages War on Palestinian History

When the Palestinian actor Mohammed Bakri made a documentary about Jenin in 2002 – filming immediately after the Israeli army had completed rampaging through the West Bank city, leaving death and destruction in its wake – he chose an unusual narrator for the opening scene: a mute Palestinian youth.

Jenin had been sealed off from the world for nearly three weeks as the Israeli army razed the neighboring refugee camp and terrorized its population.

Bakri’s film Jenin, Jenin shows the young man hurrying silently between wrecked buildings, using his nervous body to illustrate where Israeli soldiers shot Palestinians and where bulldozers collapsed homes, sometimes on their inhabitants.

It was not hard to infer Bakri’s larger meaning: when it comes to their own story, Palestinians are denied a voice. They are silent witnesses to their own and their people’s suffering and abuse.

Multiple retaliatory strikes were launched by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) late Tuesday against Hamas position in Gaza, an act in response to a rocket that was launched from Gaza toward the Israeli territory earlier in the day.

The IDF noted in a late Tuesday tweet that the service’s jets “attacked a number of other Hamas terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip. During the attack, a military compound of one of the special units of the Hamas terrorist organization was attacked.”

“The attack was carried out in response to the launch of a rocket from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory earlier in the evening and the blowing up of explosive and incendiary balloons from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory during the day,” the statement added.

PM Khan: Pakistan can’t recognize Israel until Palestine gets its rights, state

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan says his country will never recognize Israel until the issue of Palestine is resolved days after the United Arab Emirates (UAE) reached a normalization deal with Israel.

In an interview with the private Dunya News television network on Tuesday, Khan said Islamabad will not follow suit in recognizing Israel, in a reference to Abu Dhabi, which has reached a highly controversial deal with Tel Aviv to establish full diplomatic ties.

“Our stance is very clear from day one and Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had said Pakistan can never accept Israel until the people of Palestine get rights and state,” Khan said.

The Pakistani prime minister further noted that recognition of Israel equals to abandoning Pakistan’s stance on the Muslim-majority Kashmir region.

ISRAEL LAUNCHES WEEK-LONG BOMBING CAMPAIGN IN GAZA AMID ONGOING WAR CRIMES INVESTIGATION

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
Last Monday night Israeli fighter jets executed airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip for the ninth night in a row in an act that may be another on Israel’s long list of possible war crimes.

Israeli leaders characterized the actions as retaliatory, naming Gazan “incendiary balloons” and “riots” as justification.

This is just the latest in what mainstream media generally depicts as a “protracted conflict” between “the militant group Hamas and Israel,” after “months of calm” (5 Gazans have been killed in 2020; Israel has shot at farmers and fishermen hundreds of times; no Israelis have been killed).

The plight of Palestinians in Gaza, a population of almost two million crammed into a region the size of Detroit, has been hidden from the view of most, even as the US funds its occupier with over $10 million a day in military aid.

Not only does Israel limit the amount of food and medicine entering the Strip, but it has also attacked the population in three massive incursions and countless smaller forays, killing thousands while only suffering relatively minor casualties itself.

The current escalation is one example of the constant oppression and violence Gazans have experienced for thirteen years.
