US report: Iran considers Abdul-Mahdi's government as its government and does not want to lose

whatsapp-image-2019-10-26-at-4-33-43-pm.jpeg

 

8th November, 2019

 

The protests in Iraq are the largest in decades, threatening both Baghdad and Tehran, the Washington Post reported, adding that the streets of Baghdad are not alien to power struggles, but this time the crowds are different, and they represent the largest popular movement in Iraq's modern history. A new generation grew up under the US invasion, and politicians from Baghdad and Tehran now find themselves defending their powers.

The newspaper pointed in a report to a banner held high in the central Baghdad square read "to the generations of the sixties and seventies, we encourage you," referring to these protests are new in everything.

 

Threat to the equation of governance

Hareth Hassan, a non-resident scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for Near East Studies, said the most important thing these protests do is threaten the sectarian equation that has reduced Iraqis to their ethnic and religious identities. The newspaper reported that Iran, frightened by the elimination of its influence, intervened to impose a brutal response to the protests. 

It said Tehran had pressed Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, who had prepared his resignation, to give up his resignation and convinced him that the protests were a foreign plot run by the United States and Israel.

 

No to the militias and religious doctrines

It quoted a 19-year-old protester, whose first name was Mohamed, as saying they wanted a government free of militias and religious doctrine. On the reluctance of Iraqis in the west and north of the country to participate in the protests, the newspaper said they believe that the government will use their participation to say they want to return fighters of the Islamic State.

The Washington Post continued to talk about the Iraqi protests, saying it surprised the political elites and many Iraqis. Concerning Iran's fear of these protests, the Washington Post said Tehran regards Abdul Mahdi's government as its own and believes it has for the first time succeeded in controlling decision-making, so it does not want to lose that government easily.

After an Iranian announcement .. US military denies the fall of one of its drones

Politics 2019/11/08 16:55 220 Editor: bh   
Baghdad Today _ Continue WASHINGTON (Reuters) - 

 

The US military on Friday denied reports that one of its drones crashed, hours after the Iranian armed forces announced they had shot down a "foreign" drones that had penetrated Iran's airspace.

Earlier on Friday, the Iranian army announced the downing of a foreign drone that had violated Iran's airspace.

"We shot down a drone of a foreign country that penetrated Iranian airspace in the south-west of the country, using a local air defense system," Brigadier Amir Amir Sabahi Fard was quoted as saying by the Fars news agency. 

"The drone was shot down before it reached critical centers in the country," Fard said, adding that his forces had issued "numerous warnings to the aggressors that Iran's air defense systems are fully and decisively prepared to respond to any aggression or penetration into the country's airspace."

On Thursday, a US-led naval military alliance of six countries, including Britain and Saudi Arabia, began a mission to "protect shipping" in the Gulf region after several ships were attacked, accusing Iran of being behind them, despite denials.

Again .. Iran down a drone near the Gulf Coast

 

- 14 Hours Have Passed
 

%D8%A7%D9%8A%D8%B1%D8%A7%D9%86-3-300x170

 

TEHRAN (Reuters) - The Iranian army shot down an unidentified drone on Friday in the southwestern port of Mahshahr on the Gulf coast, the ISNA news agency reported.

The plane was shot down by the "Marsad" missile defense system over Iranian territory, according to the news agency Tasnim, which is close to the conservatives.

Iranian media did not say whether the plane was civilian or military, and Iranian officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

The Army Radio Club of Young Journalists said the army had shot down an "unidentified flying object", adding that officials had not yet confirmed the report.

Relations between Tehran and Washington have deteriorated since US President Donald Trump last year pulled out of a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers and reimposed sanctions.

In June, Iran shot down a US drone, which the Revolutionary Guards said was flying over the south of the country. Washington said it was in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz in the Gulf

Agency: Soleimani, Sadr and Sistani's son agreed to break up the protests and keep Abdul Mahdi

whatsapp-image-2019-10-26-at-4-33-43-pm.jpeg

 

9th November, 2019


Iraqi forces began Saturday to disperse demonstrators demanding the "overthrow of the regime," after reaching a political agreement aimed at maintaining the current authority, even if it was forced to use force to end the protests.

After being in a critical position, Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi is now the subject of consensus among political parties and politicians. Those who were demanding his departure have renounced their calls, especially because of political pressure from Iran and its allies in Baghdad. But in the political scene, the majority of forces continued to meet in recent days, according to AFP cadres from one of the parties that participated in the meetings.

One of these sources pointed out that "political parties agreed during a meeting that included the majority of leaders of large blocs to adhere to Adel Abdul Mahdi and adhere to power in exchange for reforms in the files of anti-corruption and constitutional amendments." The parties also agreed to "support the government in ending the protests by all available means," he added. There seems to be a renewed old tendency to restore the Shiite house as a national alliance, according to the same sources.

Political sources pointed out that the agreement between the parties concerned, "including others and the wisdom" came after "the meeting of General Qasim Soleimani Muqtada al-Sadr and Mohammed Reza al-Sisiati (son of Ali al-Sistani), which resulted in the agreement to remain Abdul Mahdi in office."

The sources confirmed that the only party that rejected the agreement is the "victory" coalition led by former Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, who believes that the only solution to the crisis is the departure of Abdul Mahdi.

The translation of the agreement is due to begin on Saturday during a parliamentary session devoted to the work of the committees on constitutional amendments.

- The agreement is reflected in the street -

As political ranks began, security forces began to advance in the street.

They were able to regain control of three of the four bridges held by demonstrators in Baghdad, according to correspondents from Agence France-Presse.

Although large numbers of demonstrators are gathering in the central Tahrir Square for protests calling for the "overthrow of the regime," the clashes have been going on for four of 12 bridges in the capital. The protesters marched first towards the bridge of the Republic, which links Tahrir to the Green Zone, which houses government buildings. Security forces lifted three concrete roadblocks on the bridge.

Later, other demonstrators marched towards the bridges of Al-Senak, Al-Ahrar and Martyrs parallel to Al-Jumhuriya Bridge in the north. The three bridges at night witnessed clashes between the demonstrators and the security forces that repelled them.

On Saturday morning, Iraqi forces fired tear gas canisters at demonstrators gathering in al-Rashid Street in the center of the capital. "The security forces woke us up at 2 a.m.," said one of the protesters on al-Sinak Bridge. "They fired sound bombs and shouted to us, 'Come, cross,'" the masked young man added. "Things are not good, but we are staying until a solution is found."

The Grand Ayatollah, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, called on security forces on Friday and demonstrators to show restraint and not use force. But another demonstrator said that "the Marjaiya said yesterday do not strike no live bullets and nothing else, but today they beat us, they said about us and the Baathists, but we do not have anything."

The protests, which began on October 1, witnessed bloody violence that killed about 300 people, the majority of them demonstrators demanding the "overthrow of the regime." Further south, in the oil-rich Basra province, security forces used live bullets against demonstrators heading to the provincial council building. Three people were killed and dozens injured, according to medical sources.

As for the camps set up by protesters in the yards of Baghdad and the cities of the south, security forces broke up by force in Basra, and burned with tear gas in the holy city of Karbala for Shiites. As the Internet has been forcibly shut down since the beginning of the week, Iraqis are wary of the worst, with the memory of the first week of protests beginning in October. The first wave of protests between October 1 and 6 was marked by snipers on the roofs of buildings targeting protesters, but their identity remains unknown to the authorities.

China sees Iraq as a key element in the success of its global development strategy known as the "One Belt One Road Initiative" in the Middle East, a report said Saturday. But Beijing's economic expansion in the region could force Baghdad to seek a new balance in its relations with China and the United States.

"Beijing's presence in the Middle East has been growing over the past decade, making it more quickly a trading partner for many countries in the region and its growing economic strength will attract the attention of other players in the region," the report said. Region, like the United States.”

“China's goals in the Middle East revolve around energy, infrastructure, trade and investment, and with owning Iraq world's fifth largest oil reserves and a geopolitical strategic location, China considers Iraq the key missing piece in its plans to control trade throughout Europe and Asia, as well as Being a bridge between its shipping lanes in countries such as Israel, Turkey and the Gulf states.”

"China is Iraq's largest trading partner, with trade between the two countries reaching nearly $ 30 billion last year. Likewise, Iraq is China's second largest supplier of crude oil and China's fourth largest trading partner in the Middle East.

The report pointed out that “China's acquisition of Iraq in a single road project and one belt is a big step towards its goal of gaining economic dominance in the Middle East has seen every region in the world has seen a significant decline in Chinese investment and construction projects except the Middle East and North Africa.

Setting up a sovereign wealth fund and industrial cities is an imperative
 

Saturday 09 November 2019

 

alsabaah-21877.jpg

 

Baghdad / Hussein Thughb 
 
 
Economic specialists have put forward a number of steps that can reform the national economy and overcome the problems that limit the implementation of development trends.There were proposals to establish industrial cities in strategic areas, the establishment of a sovereign wealth fund, and support the activities of the stock market to attract regional and international capitals.
Bassem Brahimi renewed his call for the establishment of a sovereign wealth fund whose aim is to isolate the public budget and the macroeconomic economy from external shocks to the global economy, as well as world oil prices, to contribute to move away from instability due to external shocks and guarantee the rights of future generations. In addition, it is an important basis for initiating projects of economic and social priority on the road to success in the process of economic development.
 
Multiple Goals
He added that "many countries have adopted this approach and worked to establish this type of funds to achieve different objectives from one country to another, and there are countries called the generational reserve fund, including Kuwait, and others called the government reserve fund as in Oman, each of which aims to achieve stability Economic or future savings or a combination of the two as in Norway. "
It is noteworthy that Abdul Hadi had stressed in this regard that "after we missed many great opportunities to diversify the Iraqi economy during (the fat years) some see that we have no more left to us today and we are living economic problems only pray for oil prices to recover, is that true? I think that we still have many solutions and sovereign wealth funds one of them, through international experiences we believe that the creation of a sovereign wealth fund in Iraq can contribute to strengthening the public budget to face cases of failures in annual revenues And faced Unexpected deviations between revenues and public expenditures, with an average balance to be determined from the budget surplus continuously and invested financially as a sovereign investment portfolio, ie a certain percentage of revenues deducted annually to be placed in this fund and managed according to its own law includes transparency to ensure the success of its work ".
 
Economic sectors
Financial specialist Mohammed Ali Jaber said: "The current economic situation in Iraq suffers from many problems, including the decline of the basic economic sectors of production and service, in light of the continuing demands for multiple financial revenues and away from the rentier character of the national economy, as oil revenues tend to operating expenses and import their needs, accompanied This is a decline in allocations directed to important investment operations that can address a range of economic problems. "
 
Engaging banks
Jaber warned that "the need to activate and support the activities of the Iraqi market for securities and support the attempts of the market to cover the shortage of liquidity, the adoption of internationally adopted methods contribute to attract capital from investors in regional and foreign countries, and the involvement of private banks and the Association of Iraqi banks as well as government banks in this conference and take advantage of "The banking system represents the cornerstone of the success of the national economy and its transfer to a better stage that puts it in the right position on the international regulations."
He stressed that "funding is the rapid engine to face the current situation, which needs real cooperation between the ministries and all government institutions, especially the Central Bank of Iraq and the Ministry of Finance in order to enable the national economy to enter into this crisis."
 
A real role
"The most important requirements for the activation of industrial production is the establishment of advanced industrial cities, where land is allocated to each industrial that has the necessary infrastructure, and must be near the main roads and in safe areas, with a real role in the selection of sites So Cities. "
On the challenges facing the Iraqi industrial, he said: "The Iraqi market is wide and can accommodate large industries and there is a desire in this aspect by many international companies, but it requires to overcome the routine that confuses the process of completion of completion of projects, the step completed within two days outside the country needs In our circles for more than four months, and this must be overcome.

Next step  [United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq]

 

39 mins ago

Baghdad – 10 November 2019

 

Over the past weeks, demonstrations erupted in Baghdad and other governorates in Iraq. Protester demands cover a wide spectrum of issues, including economic growth and employment, reliable public services, prudent and impartial governance, an end to corruption, credible elections as well as broader reform of the political system - including amendments to the constitution.

An accumulation of frustrations about the lack of progress in the last 16 years is clearly perceptible, and with rising numbers of deaths and injured (both protesters and members of the Iraqi Security Forces) a climate of anger and fear has set in. The Iraqi people cannot afford to be held back by the past nor by partisan interests. Rising hope asks for a leap forward, including the understanding that - in today’s digital age - daily life has moved online. Meanwhile, the risk of ‘spoilers’ hijacking peaceful demonstrations is increasing and potentially derailing any attempt at genuine change. Time is therefore of the essence, as are tangible results.

To start with, and following consultations with a wide range of Iraqi parties, actors and authorities (including the three Presidencies, the Supreme Judicial Council, protesters and union representatives), the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) proposes the following principles and measures:

 

PRINCIPLES

The following principles apply to all parties at all times:

1. Protect the right to life above all.
2. Guarantee the right to peaceful assembly, demonstration and freedom of expression,
as granted in the constitution.
3. Practice maximum restraint in the handling of the protests, including no use of live ammunition, ban the improper use of non-lethal devices (such as tear gas canisters).
4. Deliver full accountability for perpetrators and redress for victims.
5. Act in keeping with the law, including in regard to public and private properties.

 

MEASURES

Immediate measures (less than a week) include:

1. Release all peaceful demonstrators detained since 1 October, in accordance with the law.
2. No peaceful demonstrators shall be targeted.
3. Initiate full investigation of cases of abduction (including by making available CCTV footage), and reveal the identity of those responsible.
4. Accelerate the identification and prosecution of those responsible for targeting demonstrators.
5. Prosecute and punish those responsible for the excessive use of force and/or other violent acts, in accordance with the law.
6. Publicly call on all regional and international parties not to interfere in Iraq’s internal affairs, respecting its sovereignty.

 

Short term measures (within one week to two weeks) include:

1. Electoral reform: With the technical support of the UN, a single legal framework shall be finalized. Soon after, the framework shall be submitted to the Council of Representatives (CoR). The parliamentary procedure shall be completed as soon as possible.

2. Security Sector Reform: Executive Order 237 shall be fully implemented without delay. Any weapons outside state control shall be prohibited. Any outlaw armed entity or rogue element shall be considered illegal and it is the state’s responsibility to take them on.

3. Corruption: The political elite shall lead by example, for instance by publicly declaring their assets – at home and abroad, held under their own name or another. Additionally, political parties/blocs and movements shall abolish their economic committees.

 

Medium term measures (within one to three months) include:

1. Constitution: With the technical support of the UN, the Constitutional Review Committee shall continue its work. Any amendment to the constitution shall be put to referendum by the people of Iraq.

2. Corruption: The Commission of Integrity shall submit corruption cases to the High Judicial Council or the Central Anti-Corruption Court. The Central Anti-Corruption Court shall handle corruption cases at all levels of the state. All corrupt officials will be held accountable and prosecuted.

3. Enactment of laws: The Government shall send the following draft laws to the CoR, and the CoR shall complete its due process as soon as possible:

a. A law addressing the principle: ‘Where did you get this from?’
b. The Federal Court Law
c. The Social Security Law
d. Law on resolving the Housing Crisis
e. The Oil and Gas (Hydrocarbon) Law
f. Amending the Law on Encouraging Investments and Public-Private Sector Partnership
g. The Council of Ministers and Ministries Law
h. The Reconstruction Council Law

10th November, 2019


The parliamentary Finance Committee, on Sunday, that the budget deficit 2020 will exceed 80 trillion dinars, where the government will rely on filling this deficit through internal borrowing in addition to withdrawing funds from the Central Bank.

Committee member Naji Idris said in a statement to the information that the increase in the job grades will increase the size of the budget deficit, especially since the recently launched grades do not have any financial allocation in the budget.

Idris said, "The government will resort to internal borrowing or fill the deficit in the financing way through an open withdrawal from the Central Bank, where the deficit will exceed 80 trillion dinars, which represents a disaster in the Iraqi economy."

He explained that "the economic catastrophe experienced by Iraq as a result of the failed economic policy of the country since 2003 and to this day, especially as there is an expansion of government spending with the reduction of investment spending, especially as there is a lack of operation of factories and factories, and most investment amounts go to foreign companies operating in Oil projects and electricity debt.”

International study: 4,200 protests in Iran in the last two years

 

img12182319_0_0.jpg

The US Institute of Strategic and International Studies recently released a report on popular protests in Iran over the past two years, noting that the number and scope of these protests is the highest in Iran's history.

The Washington-based International Research Institute monitored 4,200 protests in Iran from December 2017 to October 2019 and compared them to current protests in Lebanon and Iraq to answer two questions about the origin of the protests. And to what extent it can be considered a "real threat" to the Iranian regime. The studies of this non-governmental institute are based on information gathered under the “Places Information Project, Events of Armed Conflict”.

According to a map of protests based on this information, almost all of Iran's provinces have seen protests by various groups, particularly labor groups. Hundreds of small public protests have been held every month since the winter of 2017, led by different groups, from shopkeepers to students and truck drivers in Iran. The Institute's study confirmed that the main causes of the protests were mostly living, environmental, cultural and political problems.

According to this analysis, "regardless of whether the protests in Iran are not new, the number and scope of the protests today is significant compared to previous years." "These protests are unlikely to threaten the survival of the regime, at least for the time being," the report said. The report adds that the Iranian protest movement, which has been motivated by mass protests in Iraq and Lebanon, is still "united, lacking the central command," and that "the security forces and intelligence of the regime strong." The analysis showed that since 2009, there have been unprecedented protests, following the announcement of the outcome of the presidential elections, while law enforcement agencies are strengthening their forces, activating the Revolutionary Guard and the Basij as “deterrent forces”. "Overall, the ongoing protests in Iran and other countries in the region, including Lebanon and Iraq, suggest that one of the key elements of the US conflict with Iran must be intellectual," the International Research Institute (IRI) wrote in its report.

In this regard, the Institute cited US media actions against the former Soviet Union and tools such as Radio Free Europe, Radio Liberty, Voice of America, and the US News Agency, which played a vital role during the Cold War. Accordingly, the report states that "Iran's authoritarian political system and its efforts to control access to information, including state media, make it vulnerable to US and Western media campaigns," the report concluded.

      Pompeo warns Iran: We will respond firmly if our interests in Iraq are damaged
       
      - 12 Hours Ago  


      WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Iran on Friday of a "decisive" response if US interests were harmed in Iraq after a series of missile attacks on military bases.
      This came in a Tweet for "Pompeo" on Twitter, in which he condemned the attack that occurred near the capital's airport in Baghdad this week; and wounded 6 Iraqi soldiers. Pompeo accused "Iran's agents" of carrying out the said attack.
      He added: "To Iran's leaders, the United States will respond decisively if Iran or its proxies harm US soldiers or our Iraqi partners."
      "We must seize this opportunity to remind Iran's leaders that any attacks on their side or their representatives of any identity are detrimental to the Americans, our allies, or our interests, and will be answered decisively," Pompeo said.
      He added, "Iran must respect the sovereignty of its neighbors and desist immediately (...) from supporting third parties in Iraq and throughout the region."
      This warning comes after ten missile attacks since October 28 have targeted military bases housing US soldiers or US diplomatic missions in Iraq, including the United States embassy in the heavily fortified Green Zone in the capital, Baghdad.
      Two missiles were fired on Wednesday night, Thursday, at a complex of American soldiers near Baghdad International Airport.
      In one of the attacks, six Iraqi soldiers were wounded at dawn Monday, with four rockets falling on a nearby military base in the vicinity of Baghdad International Airport.
      The US Secretary of State attributed the attacks, which no one has claimed responsibility for, to "Iran's agents", expressing his hope for "the speedy and complete recovery of these brave Iraqis."
      Rocket attacks targeting Iraqi camps in which US soldiers are stationed have been repeated since early December.
      On the fifth of this month, two rockets landed inside the "Balad Air Base", in Salah al-Din Governorate (north), two days after 5 rockets landed in "Ain al-Assad Air Force Base", in Anbar Province (west).
      The attacks did not cause losses among the American forces, but they come at a time of escalating tension between Washington and Tehran, which are allies of Baghdad, amid fears that Iraq will turn into a battleground between the two countries.
      US officials allude to the involvement of Shiite factions close to Tehran in the attacks.
      And about 5 thousand American soldiers are deployed in several military bases throughout Iraq, in the framework of the international coalition to fight the terrorist organization "ISIS".
      Iran has wide influence in Iraq, especially among the PMF factions that Tehran finances and trains.
      Tensions between Iran and the United States have escalated since Washington withdrew from the nuclear agreement with Tehran last year, and imposed heavy sanctions on Tehran.
