The newspaper Al-Shark al-Ausat reported on the resumption of contacts between Iran and Palestinian Hamas. Hamas, who changed the cause of the liberation of Palestine with Qatar, is returning to Tehran’s secure wing, who generously forgave treason.
Life is everyday.
Actually, Iran did not stop relations and the maintenance of Hamas, however, due to the reorientation of the leadership of the movement towards the opponents of Syria, it significantly reduced its funding. Although not blocked the life-giving jet at all.
“The struggle for the liberation of Palestine”, which 20 had been an idea of years ago, has become a trademark in modern conditions. A kind of brand, which is sold to assign it, trying to earn more. Romance ideas go away simply because of their age, cynical traders are justified in their place. Last year, Hamas’s sale of its sign to Qatar occurred precisely for this very reason - Emir Hamad offered the money and interrupted the price.
Hamas immediately attended to the bloody Assad regime and the lack of freedom in Syria. Hamas instructors, their fighters, weapon found themselves in the ranks of the militants fighting against the Syrian government. In the Palestinian camps of Syria, emissaries of the movement began their work, recruiting fellow tribesmen into the holy war.
Their colleagues from Hezbollah and the Syrian army defeated the powerful semi-gang-semi-political group of the Al-Farouq Brigades in Qusayr a little more than a month ago. The new emir of Qatar, Tamim, began his reign with the closure of the Muslim Brotherhood’s father’s funding project throughout the Middle East, causing a coup in Egypt, Ali Zidan’s government in Libya launching an attack on the Islamists, and unrest in Tunisia the other day.
Hamas, a kindred "Muslim Brotherhood" structure, remained restless and abandoned.
Iran did exactly what it was supposed to do — it began the procedure of accepting the prodigal daughter who had sinned with passersby into the bosom of the family. Israel, which is keenly following the movements of its strategic adversary, immediately responded - and negotiations began on Monday with Palestine, which were interrupted in connection with the application to the UN concerning its status in this organization.
In general, nothing unusual. All these movements are not brought closer to the liberation of Palestine by a millimeter, but, actually, this hasn't bothered anyone for a long time. Everyone is busy building influence configurations, and this is a never-ending, and therefore fascinating, affair.
The question is different.
Qatar, with the departure of Emir Hamad Al-Thani, virtually ceases its struggle for influence in the region. He curtailed the financing of the Muslim Brotherhood, lost positions in Egypt, and significantly lost influence in the Syrian opposition, having missed a Saudi protege to the leadership of NKSOR. Qatar stops financing the Libyan Islamists, leaving them almost to the mercy of fate, leaves Tunisia. This "LJ" is no accident, said Winnie the Pooh.
A curious fact: the president of Iran, who has not yet taken office, invites for a personal meeting the former British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, who is not only well acquainted with Rohani, but also is responsible in the British parliament, including for the Iranian direction.
Great Britain, by the way, is the only Western country that has received an invitation to Rohani’s inauguration. It is ridiculous to believe that in such a bizarre manner Iran is trying to drive a wedge between England and the States - rather, it is a question of mediation in contacts with Tehran's main opponent.
It seems that the US bet on Iran as the leading force of the Middle East is beginning to be realized. Arabian monarchies could not fulfill their task of crushing secular regimes in the region. Moreover, even in those countries in which the “Arab spring” ended with the advent of Islamists to power, they did not manage to gain a foothold.
Destructive processes gained too uncontrollable scope - and now it's time to change players. Unsuccessful - in junk. The main candidate for recycling is beginning to be seen - this is Saudi Arabia. They give her a chance to frolic in the already clearly hopeless event - the war in Syria, but it was decided to remove Qatar from the blow.
The change of leadership and the refusal to finance Islamists make the Emir of Tamim unrelated to all outrages, and therefore Qatar will not be responsible for the failure of the “Arab spring”. Unlike the Saudi Kingdom.
It seems that the al-Saud state will ultimately answer for everything.
