Iran urges Saudi Arabia to change its stance on Syria

Syria Map

Boroujerdi: Israel is the main loser of a US military strike on Syria.

The Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, is currently in the Lebanese capital Beirut in order to meet with several Lebanese ministers and officials.

However, Boroujerdi has already met with some Ministers of Lebanon and made further remarks in terms of the support by the Israeli regime for a US-led war against Syria and the dangerous stance of the Saudi regime and the Saudi Arabian support for the military intervention of an Arab country by foreign powers.

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the Chairman of the Foreign Policy and National Security Committee at the Iranian Shura Council, has called on the totalitarian dictatorship in Saudi Arabia to change its stance in terms of Syria. He further urged the Saudi regime to stop inviting foreigners to launch a war against a Muslim country.

Boroujerdi said that Tehran hopes that the stance of Saudi Arabia in regards of Syria and the US threats against the Arab country will change. According to the Iranian legislator, the Iranian administration hopes that the stance of the Saudi Arabian ruling family will change and that they stop “inviting foreigners to attack an Islamic country of the region.”

This is a clear response by an Iranian official to the call of the Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia at the meeting of the Arab League (AL) in Cairo on last weekend. The Saudi Arabian Minister has called on the US administration in Washington to begin the war on Syria in order to help the suffering Syrian people and to topple the “Syrian regime.” However, don’t throw bricks when you live in a glass house.

The Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, further underlined the concern of Tehran in terms of the possibility of an US-led military strike on Syria and that Iran hopes that all the intellectuals in the United States as well as the members of the US Congress will try everything to prevent an US-led attack on Damascus because such an attack “will inflame the entire region.”

The Iranian legislator has then expressed his pleasure about the increased knowledge of the word public in regards of the foreseeable serious and dire consequences for the Syrian people, the country and the entire region of the Middle East in case Washington really launches a war against the Arab nation. He further said in his new statements during his visit in Beirut that the number of the supporters and backers of a possible war against Syria is decreasing and that this is a good sign.

The Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission did not only speak about the dire consequences of waging war against Syria for the entire MIddle East and urged Saudi Arabia to change its stance on Syria, but also spoke about the Israeli regime in Tel Aviv and the possible result of a war against Syria for the “Zionist regime,” which supports an US-led strike on Damascus.

The Iranian legislator has yet again underlined the support of Tehran for a political and peaceful solution to the Syrian conflict and stated that in case of such a military action against Damascus, be first victim of a war against Syria” target=”_blank”>Israel will be the first and main loser of such a possible US-led attack on the Syrian nation.

Boroujerdi said that “the first loser of this crisis will be the Zionist regime,” and thus, he is in line with the previous statements by other Arab officials from Iran and Syria. However, also some Western political analysts have already explained that the Israeli regime will be the first victim of a US-led military strike on Syria and that Israel should be aware of this fact when its government calls for a war on Damascus. Iron Dome back and forth.

The Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission also confirmed that the stance of Beirut and Tehran in terms of the regional developments, the Syrian conflict and the US threats of a war against the Arab country are the same and that Lebanon and Iran shares common stances on the security of the Middle East. Boroujerdi made these statements to reporters after his meeting with the current Foreign Minister of Lebanon in the capital, Beirut.

The Iranian official also pointed out that all countries of the Middle East should try everything to “avoid a big disaster” (the possible US-led strike on Syria) and to find a peaceful solution for the Syrian conflict. He said that Tehran also hopes that the US Congress will “act logically” in terms of a possible military action by Washington against Syria and reject such a war.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, has also warned of the dire consequences for the entire Middle East in case Washington really launches a military strike on Damascus.

Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said in remarks that a possible military intervention by foreign military forces in Syria “is a disaster for the region” and that “Americans will sustain damage like when they interfered in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei thus warned against the serious and dire consequences for the Syrian people and the entire region, but he also warned against “starting the fire” in the Middle East because such a “fire in the region” will trigger “unclear and unspecified outcomes and consequences”.

In detail, he said that “starting this fire will be like a spark in a large store of gunpowder, with unclear and unspecified outcomes and consequences”.

      Zionism? Again? ‘Zionism’ is one of those terms like ‘islamo-fascist’ that people keep tossing out there, but nobody defines.

      Welcome to the forum, rie. just a tip for posting: take a deep breath, marshal your thoughts, take your time laying them out.

      Okay. Two Chechen Muslim students met vie Skype, and were invited to travel in Syria. They then traveled to Turkey, then on to Egypt, where they were caught being in possession of SAA uniforms, and showing off pictures of weapons. Egyptian investigation discovered that they were recruited for al Nusra Front, as jihadis against the Syrian government, but in Egypt were charged with a monor offense (misdemeanor?)

      Did I get the sense of your post right? Don’t be shy about posting; most of the rest of us are glad to see a fresh voice and can, generally, figure out language challenges, but we also are willing to ask the writer the sense of the post, in order to eliminate misunderstandings. Again, welcome to the forum.

    hauuuu…I took a deep breath. 

    Two young terrorists were captured recently in Egypt.
    they will join al-Nusra to topple SAA
    They were bring fake uniforms of the SAA.
    Worried about fake SAA terrorists exist within the army.

      I think what you are worried about here, may indeed be a problem throughout the country. Not on a big scale, but when the thugs stage single acts of atrocities that will make it into the media. We have seen this stuff in Iraq, too.
      For your worries about terrorists within the SAA. Unlike in Afghanistan, where the security forces had been newly formed through heavy recruitment, the SAA is “old” and established. I do not think that new recruits come in who try to corrupt the SAA from within or even murder their own comrades. There is, of course, the possibility that some personnel among the higher ranks may have betrayed their own leadership – with reference to the recent chemical attacks. I still have this weird gutt feeling that someone from “within” has been involved in those events. As good and open-minded as a leader Bashar may have been in previous years, he did not always have friends among the very high ranking political and military elite around him.
      That is worrying…

        Hm. good point. When people reach flag rank, or an equivalent in administration, they turn into more politician than whatever they’re supposed to be. That’s bad. No body needs a senior colonel, or higher, who is more interested in his own little rice bowl than he is in his duty. The thing is, I think that the company through field grade officers have been pretty well weeded out, in so far as the – – um- – questionable competence or loyalty would be concerned, and staff or flag rank officers shouldn’t be forward, or even in the field at all. Not to say it’s not possible, but I’d think it unlikely. It is possible, though, that weapons could be passed through checkpoints by order of the officer in command; not saying that the officers would know what types of weapons were going through, so – –

      Thanks, rie, good post! The fake SAA uniforms, and concern about jihadis infiltrating SAA ranks is news to me. Again, welcome aboard!

    With reference to the article: Egypt should actually be the country to urge Saudi Arabia to change their policy towards Syria… We all know that SAR and the Egypt military are brothers in arms.
    Now as I write this, I remember that the Sauds have just recently released 12 billion $ (!!!) in “aid” to Gen Sisi & Co. Hm, big cash to silence Egypt. The worst nightmare of the Saudi royals (the MB) has just been removed by Gen Sisi, so that was thanked with some donation to the cash stripped forces across the Sinai. Only obligation – forget about Syria, boys. It worked. Egypt happy, the US happy, the EU no clue, Turkey unhappy but happy, Israel superhappy, Hamas in tears, Jordan – knows nothing, and Syria – screwed.

      Good breakdown! Say, have you heard anything about Syria having begun to sell oil to Russia for rubles, or about a humnuguous gas field discovered in the Damascus-Aleppo-Palmyra triangle? I heard a buzz about both, but no confirmation as yet. We do know that Saddam Hussein had dumped the dollar for the euro and Libya was about to roll out the Libyan Gold Dinar; neither Iraq nor Libya belonged to either the World Bank or IMF, neither does Iran. Any threat to the petrodollar will, absolutely, be met with military force. It’s hard to fault Egypt for taking KSA money in exchange for not getting involved in a war for which they have neither time nor resources and probably won’t for the foreseeable future, but that’s 12 Billion less in KSA coffers, and I’m okay with that, too. EU has no clue? I’m not so sure. Poland has refused an invitation to join the coalition of the willing because they take Russia seriously; the Germans are extremely pissed that US Federal Reserve won’t return Deutchebank’s gold, nobody else in the EU has any money to fund Obama’s wet dreams, but France is – – France; when it’s noon anywhere else in Europe it’s midnight in France, according to the French. I have a hard time feeling sorry for Hamas, and Jordan would rather, I think, be Greenland. Jordan is so hard up in a clinch that it just ain’t funny. If Turkey is unhappy, they brought it on themselves. I don’t know why Israel would be ecstatic; as soon as Obama’s big whoooo goes bust, Israel will left high and dry, depend on it. The US has a lot of very expensive hardware and overpriced toys, but has not been a super power for some time. We can’t cover Israel’s *ss, but the Israeli government is too stupid to understand that.

        Prior to the civil war, Syria had been making lots of money by processing foreign oil, not just selling their own (limited) resources.
        They used to buy Saddam’s oil in “Syrian-Iraqi Friendship Oil for Food Program” scheme – I saw the tankers rolling into Syria in the hundreds back then.
        After Saddam’s disposal that income started to dry up but, Syria kept processing cheap below-market-price Iranian oil in the big refining plant west of Homs, likely also at Banias. This practice had always been a thorn in the “international community’s” eyes.
        After securing Homs and the refinery, the Syrian production may again be on now to a level where they can export. Oil fields in the northern Syrian desert – hm, not that I know until 2010. The areas you talk about are (were) contracted to Iran and Canada, apart from the Syrian petro industry, as well as France in the costal zone towards Hama, Homs and Yabrud. Fields in Palmyra had been online already before the war. It’s a bit awkward, really – the refineries are under govt rule, the fields in Kurdish lands mainly, as well as govt an FSA controlled, the pumping previously done by nations that are now Syria’s worst enemies. What a dreadful mess. Good news – the US had no stake before and they won’t have any afterwards – that’s clear to me.
        As for my remark on the EU: you said it… the EU is made up by a dozen different opinions on Syria but, those are the voices of member states. Not the EU! The folks in Brussels have basically no clue what to do an how to handle anything. My words were not clear, sorry.
        Ref Israel: Well, they can count on Egypt as a silently supportive partner on the Hamas frontline. No danger there – apart from the odd Katyusha. As far as rumors go, both the Saudi royals as well as Pharao Sisi carry some jewish blood in their vessels. The Israeli-Syria upcoming conflict: Hm, politics of bombs. in 2006 he IDF released over 40,000 shells and other munition on Lebanon in just over a month. Result – stalemate, no winner. They moved out due to political internal pressure and the knowledge that a fight against an insurgency inside Lebanon is useless. Syria may be similar. They would never move in to remain there. But bomb the hell out of Syria. If Syria dares to intervene with unconventional methods, no good idea…
        Jordan – officially “knows nothing”. I meant their policy of non-direct-interference for the sake of surviving the upcoming disaster. The royal there must fear their a.. off by now, but, strategic partnership sometimes calls for wet pants.
        I forgot Lebanon… utterly devided. Hizbollah fearing an end coming, the (stupid) Palestinians in the north thinking that there may be another chance to take over a country that never belonged to them and the Christians, well, they may even win in influence (the money, they already have).
        Honestly – I don’t see any resolve in Syria. It’s a nightmare, slowly dragging in those who should have never meddled there.
        I have another gutt feeling… the US will strike and as retaliation unfolds, suddenly promote ground forces to end the looming ME war. Turkey and Israel will happily (TR) and unhapplily (ISR) follow the call, all hoping that Iran does not step in. Russia won’t, I believe.
        You know, as silly as it sounds – the best thing for Syria to do is probably – nothing!

      Oh, one more little clue where Egypt remains politically: Gen Sisi’s airforce just conducted a couple of “show off” helicopter flights over GAZA, closed down most of the smuggling tunnels recently and started arresting Gazan fishermen who dare sail an inch across the maritime line of no return.

      • Arklight

        Hm. Well, as far as I can tell, the Gazans can thank Hamas if they’re having tough times but, Gazans elected Hamas to power, knowing how much they hate Israel, so it’s their own fault, mostly. The other side is that Hamas has never governed responsibly, and so betrayed the trust of the Gazans. It’s a shame that fishermen have to stay within prescribed boundaries regardless of sea or weather conditions, and I wouldn’t take their boat or catch because of conditions on the sea, but if I ran the world a whole lot of other things would change, too. As I understand it, Hamas abused the tunnel privileges extended by Egypt, which has enough headaches right now. I rather suspect that had the tunnels been used to bring in food and other non lethal or non military stuff, the tunnels would have been left as they were. There’s always some *sshole who will drop a turd in the soup.
