Some wannabe Romanian false-flagger (a fake Romanian) that posts in Urdu (I believe) while being a Wilayat al-Faqih Mullah lover and thus against 500 million Arabs and 20 + Arab countries due to this (he believes that one must be anti-Arab as a Wilayat al-Faqih Mullah supporter/Iranian regime supporter forgetting that the Mullah's in Iran are mostly of Arab ancestry, that it was Arabs that created this system ages ago (when the Safavids imported them) and despite Arabic language being promoted by them and them worshipping Arab figures more than even Arabs themselves.

Some kind of schizophrenia. This hatred makes no sense. Not sure what is wrong with them?

The paradoxes of blind regime supporters. Especially foreigners are bad. He probably could be one of their future cannon fodder in Syria as poor Hazaras from Afghanistan and Afghan refugees, including some Pakistani ones. Work "Made in Mullahstan". Expired (dead) "Made in Syria".:lol: (no laughing matter in reality)

Don't take him and his likes seriously on PDF. Yet to see a single informative post by them to date.

Obvious butthurt.

Arabs are themselves not united. Yemen and Syria and Lebanon are out of question. Then came the problem with Qatar, which even existed in 1996. In fact, there are internal problems in Saudi Arab itself for the crown.
Then Arabs have got huge problem of extremist Salafism. Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Ikhwan, all of them are the problems of this neo-Salafism (Hanbalies).
Egypt will keep on fighting not only against ISIS, but also against Ikhwanies.
Syria will either go to Assad, or otherwise we will see fight between Saudia backed Jihadists and Qatar/Turkey backed Ikhwanies, while there also come into play the al-Qaeda and ISIS too.

Then comes the problem of dictatorships in Arab countries. At moment West is silent upon it while they share enmity towards Iran, but for sure West is not comfortable with the Arab Dictatorships and sooner or later there will be again some thing like Arab Spring.

Arab regimes are not "united" (most of them at least but many are in fact), but even despite that Arabs have economic regional blocs only found in Europe in the world and an Arab League that is as old as the UN. Speaks volume that despite all those bad odds against us (bad regimes, recent imperialism) we have managed to have close bonds and ties across the borders.

There are no internal problems in KSA in terms of power struggle. Rarely ever were other than healthy rivalry. Civil wars? Bloody coups? As common in the Muslim world and neighborhood? Never. That's due to the tribal alliances. Most foreigners are not aware of this. They wonder how come such a waste country like KSA with is large geographic distances, different landscapes and historical regions, can be this united and create a common identity within less than 2 generations? Well, they know little about Arabia and what makes it tick around.

You are overestimating those problems. It's overall a tiny, tiny problem. Many more people die due to traffic incidents than terrorism. Terrorism is losing in all Arab countries while it is growing in for instance Afghanistan and elsewhere (Nigeria, Sahel).

KSA does not support anyone in Syria other than Arab Sunni Arab nationalist (basically 80% of Syria's population) that are against the illegal Al-Assad regime that is on loan. KSA and Egypt have the same opinion about Syria not to say that KSA is not involved much in Syria any longer. That stopped being the case 3 years ago.

Turkey and Qatar have invested much more in Syria than KSA has or any other Arab country.

For your information, positive developments on all fronts are occurring in every Arab country. Natural transitions are likely to take place naturally.

As for the Arab spring, it is blown out of proportion. Not even 500.000 people have died and 90% of the casualties are due to the Syrian civil war which is an world war nowadays where all powers with the exception of China are involved. Like comparing apples and oranges.

The potential of the Arab world is enormous and undeniable and nothing points to the new, mostly well-educated youth (in particular in the GCC but not only) to commit similar mistakes in the past. Not the way the societies are moving and what I mean by that is something that only local Arabs (youth) will understand, not foreigners with an bias or limited knowledge if any.

This is a 2 year old video. Since that time, especially in KSA, a lifespan of changes (compared to the past 20-30 years) has occurred!


Anyway this is not the topic of the thread but KSA-Egypt cooperation and relations. Here regimes are IMO irrelevant but the main focus is the nations and its peoples.

Leaders here, in this case Al-Sisi and MbS are there to facilitate this process and representing their countries and nothing else or at least that should not be the case.

If you keep Turkey and Iran out then Arab Sunnis and Shia in Syria and Iraq will be able to get along easily.
Arab Shias in the gulf are better educated than the ones living in Iraq and Syria, they will not ruin their country and future for the sake of Iran same applies with Sunnis.

The fact is only 20% of the Arab world is suffering from instability (and it is contained within Libya, Syria, Yemen and Iraq..) ..while 80% enjoy stability and healthy inter-relations..

Omg....this is the most stupid thing i have ever heard in PDF.

Like Iran and Turkey are the cause of the sectarianism in ME, not Iran and KSA.

And no, you won't be able to get Iran from Iraq and Syria. Since they have duty to export their revolution. They have been successful in Lebonon, Iraq, Syria....who knows maybe someday they will succeed in Saudi Arabia too.

There was no sectarianism in the wider Arab world prior to 1979 in the modern era (post WW1). Not a single sectarian conflict. We all know what caused it post-1979.

Iranian Mullah influence in Iraq was nonexistent prior to 2003. It's diminishing nowadays as well with the booming KSA-Iraq ties and by default Iraq-Arab ties. Things will return to normality again and a tiny amount of troublemakers who blindly trust foreigners over their own blood, will be disgraced as prior in history. Siding with Mullah's will bring nothing but destruction and your own downfall.

Same in Syria. it is the Russians that are calling all the shots. 99,9% of all Syrians have no relationship to Iran. Whether historical, cultural, linguistic, religious, geographic, economic etc. It's 1 sick regime (that helped destroy its own country) that has ties with a Mullah regime that most Syrians despise. Once the useless Al-ASSad regime is removed again (question of time) things will return to normality.

20 + Arab countries, 500 + million Arabs, and Mullah's (who themselves claim to be Arab) have influence among maybe 0.5%.

They are as likely to succeed in KSA ( :lol.) as Turkey being ruled by the Byzantine empire tomorrow with the Greek president ruling as emperor from a newly renamed Constantinople.

The fact is only 20% of the Arab world is suffering from instability (and it is contained within Libya, Syria, Yemen and Iraq..) ..while 80% enjoy stability and healthy inter-relations..
Yes, and things are stabilizing slowly in Iraq and similarly in Yemen and Libya. Syria is the hardest conflict to solve because world powers are involved too (US, West, Russia). It's not only a civil war any longer.

you stupid doesnt even know that Turkey is SUnni majority that more than 90% and has no problem. You better take the word Turkey from your dirty mouth
He was talking about Turkish influence in Iraq and Syria. What has it contributed to? Turkey (Erdogan) was the main supporter of KRG which was/is undermining Baghdad for years. Turkey is trying to flood Iraq with products that Iraqis themselves once produced (partially) and should be producing themselves. Turkey is building dams that reduce the water volume in Tigris and Euphrates. You think that Iraqi thinkers and those in power are not aware of those realities?
I see nothing beneficial here from the perspective of Iraq. As for Syria (for Syrian nationalist), I don't have to answer this as you will know the answer. Same goes for Russian, Mullah, US etc. involvement.

As for Mullah-ruled Iran (destroying and stagnating their own country for 40 years), they are in their own league and Turkey, even with Erdogan's fantasies are an innocent lamb in comparison. I give you that but not everything is rosy.

BTW are you an Azeri that lives in Turkey or a Turk that lives in Azerbaijan?

Mohammed bin Salman: Saudi-Egyptian ties cannot be sabotaged

Staff writer, Al Arabiya English
Tuesday, 6 March 2018

During his visit to Egypt, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met on Monday with a number of journalists and editors of the Egyptian newspapers and media.

The Crown Prince affirmed during the meeting the strong relations between Egypt and Saudi Arabia against any attempt to sabotage it.

Profound relations with Egypt
"Egypt-Saudi relations are strong and solid, and no attempt to sabotage it will ever succeed… When Egypt thrives, the whole region can rise," he said.

He added: "Egypt is now in the best position economically, and what’s coming ahead is even better."


On Qatar crisis
Addressing a question on the Qatar crisis, Prince Mohammed bin Salman said: "I do not occupy myself with the issue of Qatar. The only way to resolve the crisis is to manage it the way the US handled the clash with Cuba in 1959.”

Reforms in Saudi Arabia
When asked about the ongoing reforms in Saudi Arabia, the crown prince said: "The Social reforms in Saudi Arabia are compatible with true Islam ... Islam is a tolerant religion that allows us to open wide dialogues with all ideologies and schools of thought in Saudi Arabia."

"Everything we do in Saudi Arabia is reflected on the economic progress, and on the citizens, especially the Saudi youth," he added.

The war in Yemen
About the ongoing war in Yemen, the crown prince said: "The war in Yemen is close to achieving its goals to restore legitimacy in the face of the Houthi militia and their end is imminent.”

The role of Shiites
"The Shiites of Saudi Arabia are contributing to its growth and they fill leading positions," Prince Mohammed bin Salman said.

Coptic Church says Saudi crown prince ‘disturbs roots of regional extremism’

He added that the visit conveyed a message of cooperation, partnership and kindness. (Al Arabiya)
Staff writer, Al Arabiya English
Tuesday, 6 March 2018

Paul Halim, the Coptic Church's spokesman in Egypt, said on Monday that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman disturbs the roots of extremism in the region.

In an interview with the program Panorama that airs on Al Arabiya television channel, Halim said the crown prince’s visit to Saint Mark's Cathedral had a huge impact on the Egyptian and Arab public as it sends a very significant message that supports moderation and rejects extremism.

He added that the visit conveyed a message of cooperation, partnership and kindness.

“The openness which Saudi Arabia is leading has influenced the Egyptian street. Mohammed bin Salman’s visit to Egypt is historical given its significances,” Paul said.

Paul added that the crown prince’s speech on the Copts, the Egyptian Church and Christians was a “very strong message that spreads enlightening and moderate rhetoric.”

Saudi Arabia, Egypt agree to develop lands in southern Sinai for mega-city project

Staff writer, Al Arabiya English
Monday, 5 March 2018

Saudi Arabia and Egypt signed an investment agreement to develop more than 1,000 square kilometers of Egyptian lands South of Sinai to be within the planned mega-city of Neom.

For this purpose, they will establish a joint fund with equal shares and that’s worth more than $10 billion of which the Egyptian shares are the lands leased for long periods of time. This agreement has branched from the joint Egyptian-Saudi investment fund agreement.

The two countries also signed an environmental protocol to protect marine environment, prevent pollution to maintain coral reefs and beaches and to prevent “visual pollution”. This is all part of the Saudi strategy before it begins working on the Red Sea projects.

READ ALSO: All you need you know about Egypt’s plans for new Saudi mega-city NEOM

Given the significance of tourism, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan will work on developing the area. Saudi Arabia, for instance, plans to establish seven maritime tourist attractions, which include cities and tourist projects, in Neom. It’s also working on establishing 50 resorts on the Red Sea and four small cities as part of the Red Sea Project.

It’s also working on developing areas between Neom and the Red Sea Project and creating three other tourist destinations, 15 maritime destinations and hundreds of resorts.

Meanwhile, Egypt will focus on two tourist attractions, Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada, and Jordan will focus on developing Aqaba within the framework of Saudi-Jordanian investments.

Saudi Arabia will work in cooperation with Egypt and Jordan to attract European navigation and tourism companies that work in the Mediterranean Sea in the summer to get them to work in the Red Sea after the summer season. Saudi Arabia is thus currently negotiating with more than seven tourist companies to improve marine navigation in the region.

According to several studies, demand on trips via navigation and tourism companies that work in the Mediterranean Sea decrease after the summer season so some of these companies close until the next summer or operate in the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean. However, there is a lot of competition in the Indian Ocean and tourist sites are also very far from each other.

In the Red Sea, however, the distance between the tourist attractions will be no more than 3 hours-apart. Of course this is in addition to a great weather during the winter season. Some of the plans will also focus on attracting the yacht industry and establishing specialized marinas in the new resorts in the Red Sea.

Not agreed. We saw Iran - Iraq relations during the take over of Kirkuk a few months ago. Iran is the most influential country in Iraq.

Things will return to normality again and a tiny amount of troublemakers who blindly trust foreigners over their own blood, will be disgraced as prior in history. Siding with Mullah's will bring nothing but destruction and your own downfall.
This is your assumption. Let's make another assumption. When will things go to normal in Lebonan ? (I mean freed from Iranian influence) It had been many years.

Same in Syria. it is the Russians that are calling all the shots. 99,9% of all Syrians have no relationship to Iran. Whether historical, cultural, linguistic, religious, geographic, economic etc. It's 1 sick regime (that helped destroy its own country) that has ties with a Mullah regime that most Syrians despise. Once the useless Al-ASSad regime is removed again (question of time) things will return to normality.
Whatever like it or not. Assad is winning in the field. Removing of the Assad regime is a fantasy now.

They are as likely to succeed in KSA ( :lol.) as Turkey being ruled by the Byzantine empire tomorrow with the Greek president ruling as emperor from a newly renamed Constantinople.
I dunno....let's go back to 20 years who would have guessed Saddam's Iraq would be best buddies with Iran.

Care to elaborate here if you don't mind? What was it that Iran did actually? Last time I checked it where 100% Iraqi Arab soldiers that chased the occupying Kurdish terrorists away from Kirkuk and other areas of Iraq after orders from Al-Abadi (who is no Al-Maliki and who has cordial/close ties with KSA as well as other Arab countries and even the West - all against Mullah interests who want a fragmented Iraq that is easy to control). It's the same nonsense like the hilarious crap of maybe 4-5 Iranian advisers (some of them even Iranian Arabs) being the reason why 20.000 big Daesh (at most) could not conquer 12 million big Baghdad. Such nonsense we hear even from deluded Iranian users on PDF and we Iraqi and Arab users laugh about this.

@TheCamelGuy @SALMAN F

The notion that Iran controls almost 40 million big Iraq is a joke. @TheCamelGuy wrote about yesterday in detail and picked the nonsense apart.

I do agree that they have influence but so have every major regional country in Iraq after 2003.

Correction, tiny Southern Lebanon. Rest of Lebanon, not the case. Here it is clear, Hezbollah is a direct Iranian Mullah proxy group and they control tiny Southern Lebanon.

It was fantasy (given that Syria was known as the North Korea of the Arab world prior to 2011 since they have had a martial law for almost 50 years in a row - just imagine for a second) what occurred in Syria a few years ago (pre-2011). Every regime will collapse eventually especially if it is ruled by an outdated failed ideology (that they do not even adhere to), when you sell your country out to foreigners and when you rely on foreigners to regain control of your country. Today there is a power play between Al-Assad regime, Russia (Putin) and Iran (Mullah's). All 3 have different visions and especially Russia and Iran are competing for influence. For now Russia is clearly winning among the non-Shia Alawite Islamists.

But even if we assume that status quo will remain, what can Iran do when 99,9% of all Syrians have no relationship to Iran. Whether historical, cultural, linguistic, religious, geographic, economic etc. They can only improve the economic part and nobody is going to believe that Iranian goods and services will be preferred over Russian ones when Russia has the upper hand (clearly) in Al-Assad controlled areas. Due to demographics (Syria is not almost 100% Shia Twelve like tiny Southern Lebanon) Iran cannot repeat this project in Syria. It's a waste of resources for them all while their economy is collapsing, currency and all while there are deep divides in the country, as we recently saw with those protests that come and go.

They are not. If they were they would not have relations with KSA, Arab world and the West (US bases in Iraq approved by the government in Baghdad). Not insignificant relations too.

See this thread below.

https://defence.pk/pdf/threads/depu...g-relationship-with-iraq-in-all-areas.511831/

It's much more complicated than that. In Iraq there are various political factions within the Dawah party. The faction that want to copy the Mullah's has lost power after Al-Maliki was removed and is losing power as Al-Abadi cements his power. Iraq cannot afford to side with Iran and alienate its Arab neighbors. Nor will the Iraqis ever accept this. They don't wish it.

With a non-Mullah regime ruling Iran, 90% of the current problems would be gone. This way normalization can occur again like before 1979.

Iraq has adopted a neutral stance like Switserland. Officialy the country has no treaty military alliance with anyone. It refuses to choose between the US/NATO/Gulf axis or the Russia/Iran axis, hence the US will not supply the country with advanced arms. Neither is it part of the axis of resistance. If they were in control i'm quite sure they would integrate the country in their axis.

People have to be aware of internal Iraqi politics to see this struggle of balance between 2 sides, and for that knowing Arabic makes it easier. Also, Turkey is Baghdad's largest trader partner not Iran. Had Iran been in control.. would that be the case?

Iran managed to convince the world that they control everyone, the gullible masses will fall for it as they fell for the propaganda that the Peshmerga are warriors and the Iraqis cowards. Until Otober 2017

Iraq is an independent and proud country and a potential regional superpower. Iraq should not allow itself to be controlled and taken advantage of or hijacked by local or foreign troublemakers.

Propaganda such as claims that Mullah's rule Iraq (as well as claims of this being the case in Syria and Yemen (very funny) ), should be combated.

Iraq must pursue a wise foreign policy where ties with the West, Russia and China (should increase further), Arab world and neighbors, should continue. Iranian users here on PDF and Mullah's in power hope for Iraq to suddenly become a non-Arab country and to cut ties with its Arab neighbors and the Arab world as a whole. That is never going to happen and such foreigners are unfamiliar with Iraq or even sentiments of Iraqi Shia Arabs who while fairly religious, at the same time are pro-Arab in the sense that they have an Arab outlook naturally. Always been the case.

Iran could be a constructive partner and neighbor for Iraq and GCC (the only areas of the Arab world that neighbor Iran) if for instance Mullah's did not rule it or reforms emerged there.

Even despite the current disputes, a country like UAE host the largest Iranian diaspora after the US (in the world) and UAE is one of Iran's largest trade partners.

This way focus on REAL important areas such as science, economy, environment, trade, investments, education, health care, agriculture, renewable energy, infrastructure, military, security, tourism, art, various industries etc. can be focused on.

What the media shows to people has a major impact as we've seen from only the 1-2 years of propaganda that painted the Kurds as the bravest warriors. Nowadays any westerner I meet, Russians last weekend asked me about Iraq and told me how mighty Kurds are. People are taught this nonsense and adopt it en masse.

Now we (neighbors of a Kurdistan) are more aware of this and know better than what the media tells. Except for Iraq's politics it is again an unknown area to many of the region which means they will adopt the perspective and information shown by the media. Which is a 10+ year long propaganda machine stating Iraq was handed to Iran on a golden platter. In the past the Gulf states had interest in such a perspective as well to distance the US from Baghdad, currently it remains the Kurds who pursue this lobbying the media to call Iraq a controlled entity by Iran for their own interests.

It worked on westerners with the mighty Kurd story which we know is false, it works on many others with Iraq being a controlled entity. You will only know the truth when you know the country well itself, which is not the case here with the one's commenting.
