Moscow (GPA) – Zionism is as active as ever in their campaigns abroad as they are at home according to Palestinian analyst, writer, and Director of Palestine Today TV’s Gaza office Amer Khalil.
Geopolitics Alert contributor Damir Nazarov recently spoke with Palestinian political analyst Amer Khalil concerning Israel’s most recent activity across the Middle East and Africa. While the Zionists are obviously busy at home working hand in hand with the West to further colonize internationally recognized Palestinian territory, the occupation government is still actively manipulating affairs well beyond within their illegitimate “country”.
Damir Nazarov: In recent years, the Zionists have been especially aggressive towards the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMFs). What do you think is behind this Israeli aggression and the antagonization of the Iraqi people and state that comes with it?
Amer Khalil: The Israeli entity sees Iran as the primary threat to its existence, whether with regard to the nuclear issue or the forces rejecting it in the region, including the PMFs in Iraq, which enjoyed a solid relationship with Iran. Remember, it was the PMFs’ leader was targeted three months ago with the commander of the Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, and which Israel put in the list of assassinations with Imad Ma’niyah and Hassan Nassr Allah, and their photos were published in Israeli newspapers
D.N.: In late 2019 and early 2020, the Zionists carried out an air raid against representatives of the Palestinian Jihad in Syria, which was a new escalation for Israeli operations. Why did the occupiers seemingly make this such a high priority at this specific point in time?
A.K.: Islamic Jihad is a Palestinian movement that resists the Israeli occupation and constitutes one of the major factions in the Palestinian resistance that struggles against the Zionists, having fought multiple battles during 2019. One of these clashes came after the assassination of one of the organization’s military leaders Baha Abu Al-Atta and was planning to strike at the same time the leadership of Islamic Jihad in Syria, where she tried to assassinate the military department in it, Akram Al-Ajuri, but failed to do so, believing that this will affect the effectiveness of the Islamic Jihad military.
D.N.: The Secretary of the Expediency Discernment Council, Major General Mohsen Rezaei suggested that the Palestinian Mujahideen should carry out international renaissance against “Israel”. How do you interpret this statement?
A.K.: The international political battle against the occupation, which is part of the battle against the occupation by exposing its crimes and explaining the injustice of the Palestinian people.
D.N.: According to the Zionists, they have recently made new “friends” in Sudan and South Yemen; what is behind the Zionists seeking out these allies that should seem strange in theory?
A.K.: This is not new. Israel constantly tries to open relations with Arab countries in order to neutralize Arab policies in support of the Palestinian people. Israel often employs a strategy of taking advantage of negative internal conditions in Arab capitals for this. I do not think that succeeds in opening public relations because Israel is rejected by the Arab peoples and even with Egypt and Jordan, which Israel has signed peace agreements with them, the Israeli is still rejected and feared to appear publicly. Once, Sharon said that these agreements are not worth the ink in which they were written because the people do not accept them.
