Mideast Peace: Syria should expel terrorists, IAEA must dismantle Israeli nukes!
-DR. ABDUL RUFF COLACHAL
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani argues that part of a solution to the Syria crisis is to expel “terrorist groups” fighting the regime in Damascus from that country. Syrian regime also refers to rebels fighting to topple President Bashar al-Assad’s regime as “terrorist groups” and they attack Syria by taking orders from enemies of Islam from foreign states. Rouhani told visiting UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi that Iran believes that by continuing humanitarian aid, preventing the entry and expelling terrorist groups from Syria and the complete destruction of chemical weapons will be first important steps for achieving stable peace in Syria, contributing to the peaceful region in Mideast.
The conflict in Syria has killed more than 115,000 people since it erupted in March 2011, when a government crackdown on peaceful protests escalated into civil war.The first problem in the escalation of Syrian crisis is division among the Syrian opposition, the presence of terrorist groups between them and the lack of consensus among Syria’s neighboring countries and world’s major powers.
Brahimi is on a Middle East tour to garner support for a planned peace conference next month in Geneva between regime and rebel representatives. The Geneva II conference has been repeatedly postponed amid wrangling among the Syrian opposition, and a dispute over which countries, including Iran, should participate. Prospects for the initiative appear dim as the fractured Syrian opposition has yet to decide whether to attend and as Assad has said the “factors are not yet in place” for a conference.
Rouhani said a major obstacle to resolving the Syria crisis was lack of consensus among regional and international players, adding that Iran is ready to play a positive role in any movement that would contribute to stability in Syria. Brahimi said in Tehran that Iran’s participation is “natural and necessary”. But he stressed that no invitations had yet been sent out for the proposed international peace conference which the United Nations hopes to organize for late November.
Iran’s support for Syrian regime is condemned by USA and Israel. Israel, the Islamic republic’s arch-foe, wants Iran to meet four conditions before the sanctions are eased: halting all uranium enrichment; removing all enriched uranium from its territory; closing its underground nuclear facility in Qom; and halting construction of a plutonium reactor. The Jewish state and the Middle East’s sole if undeclared nuclear-armed power, imposed inside Palestine Mideast by USA-UK terror twins to terrorize the Arabs, has insisted there be no relief for Iran from crippling economic sanctions which brought it to the table in the first place.
Even while tackling the attacks from Israel over its support for Syria, Iran is to hold a new round of talks on the issue with six world powers in Geneva on November 7-8. Iran’s nuclear enrichment program is at the core of its dispute with world powers, who suspect it masks a drive for atomic weapons despite repeated denials by the Islamic republic. Iran is prepared to give up enriching uranium to 20 percent .
Meanwhile, Israel is upset over the emerging US-Iran nexus. It has repeatedly warned against the so-called charm offensive of Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani, which led to direct talks between Tehran and the USA, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany in Geneva on October 15 and 16.
Nuclear Israel is increasingly becoming restless over emerging Iranian drones and nukes. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Iran is close ot making the bomb and is capable of converting low-grade uranium to weapons-grade within weeks. The important part stems from technological improvements which allow Iran to enrich uranium from 3.5 percent to 90 percent in a number of weeks. Netanyahu wants pressure on Iran, which continues enrichment while negotiating, must be intensified and has as usual warned that Israel reserves the right to launch unilateral military action against Iran if necessary to stop it developing the ability to build a nuclear bomb.
Now Saudi Arabia, in refusing to take up a temporary place on UNSC, has clearly claimed veto seat on UNSC.
In order to create the necessary environment for Mideast Peace a few actions are absolutely necessary. They include: Syria should expel terrorists; the IAEA must dismantle Israeli nukes and UNSC must clear the Palestine statehood as quickly as possible!

Terrorism is caused by anti-Islamic forces. Global media today, even in Muslim nations, are controlled by anti-Islam forces and rogue agencies. Fake democracies have zero-tolerance to any criticism of their anti-Muslim and other aggressive practices. Anti-Muslimism and anti-Islamism are more dangerous than “terrorism”
