Iranian Anti-American Animation aired on Anniversary of 1979 Takeover of U.S. Embassy in Tehran: America - the Blood of Our Youth Is Dripping from America’s Claws; You Are Satan Incarnate

On November 4, 2019, the 40th anniversary of the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Kerman TV (Iran) aired an anti-American animation that depicted Uncle Sam as a greedy man who drinks oil, wages war, and commands terrorists and gives them medals. Uncle Sam is shown cowering when he hears an Iranian crowd chant “Death to America!”, and the animation ends with him collapsing and being dragged away by the Grim Reaper. A well-known anti-American song performed by children played over the animation. The lyrics say: “The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws… You [steal] from every harvest… You are a demon of oppression… You contain the venom of tragedy… You are the Devil incarnate… You are the enemy of humanity.”

 

Chanting: Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America!

Lyrics: America, America – shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

America, America, shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

With the flame of oppression, you have set the world on fire.

You have completely disrupted the security and order in the world.

You [steal] from every harvest and you are in the heart of every garden.

The fire of your oppression is a bolt of lightning full of grief.

Your great wealth is the grief of the masses.

Your grudge has stabbed [everyone in the] chest using the dagger of agony.

You are a world-devouring thief.

You are a demon of oppression.

You are a scorpion from Hell.

You are a cunning fox.

You are full of injustice and disloyalty.

You have no love or loyalty.

You contain the venom of calamity.

You do not have the nectar of purity.

There has never been oppression such as [yours].

You are the cause of all strife.

You have no peace and tranquility.

America, America – shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

America, America – shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

America, America – shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

America, America – shame on your deception!

The blood of our youth is dripping from your claws.

The fire of your war exists in the entire universe.

The ears of the world are tired of the harsh beat of your drums.

You are Satan incarnate.

You are the enemy of humanity.

The borders of your culture are hate.

Rebellion is your nature.

Destruction is your handiwork.

The world has grown dark because of your cheating and scheming.

You are the enemy of every nation.

You are the cause of all humiliation.

You are the shadow of every horror.

You are the strife of every nation.

Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad Denies Use of Chemical Weapons, Adds: The Terrorist Organizations Are Proxies of the U.S.; Al-Baghdadi Was Trained and Supervised by U.S. Government

#7594 | 07:11
Source: Russia Today TV (Russia)

Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad said in an interview on Russia Today that was published on November 10, 2019 that the Syrian Army did not use chemical weapons before handing its stockpile over to the international community and that the accusations and purported evidence of rebel groups using chemical weapons that were given to them by the regime are faked. He said that many members of the White Helmets are terrorists, that the White Helmets are a PR stunt, and that they are an offshoot of the Al-Nusra Front. President Al-Assad also said that Western accusations that Syria attacks humanitarian targets and kills its own people are false and misleading narratives. In addition, he said that the United States uses terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda as proxies in order to maintain its hegemony in the region and that Israel is also working with terrorist organizations against the Syrian government. He added that ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, who was recently killed by American forces, had been trained, supervised, and handled by the United States government and that his death is an attempt by America to whitewash its involvement with terrorist organizations. Al-Assad also said that the Qatari government had paid demonstrators in Syria during the Arab Spring.

Following are excerpts:

 

Bashar Al-Assad: Never ever [has] the Syrian army used chemical weapons before it handed over all its arsenals to the international committee.

 

[…]

 

Interviewer, Afshin Rattansi: Any truth in the rumors – arguably on your side – saying video evidence is being manipulated and that rebels were using chemical weapons via the Saudi Arabian government and chemical weapons were, indeed, used but by the so-called “rebels”?

Bashar Al-Assad: Yes, it is on YouTube, you can see it. I mean they staged [a] play, [a] full play, where somebody played a role of a victim – in many incidents, not only with the chemical weapons, even with the bombardments. They staged a play that somebody is being a victim. At the end of the shooting [of the video], it is a normal person, he will stand up and go, move along. You can see it on YouTube. It is very clear, we can offer you these evidence.

 

[…]

 

It is very simple, to see the same faces of those “angels”, the White Helmets, the same face of the same one in the White Helmets was a fighter with Al-Qaeda. You can see they make it… Very clear. The same one who is being beheading or cutting [off] heads and one of them will be eating the heart of a [Syrian] soldier. I mean this is very common to see on the Internet… the evidence… No one in this region believes the PR stunt of the White Helmets. They are an offshoot of Al-Nusra.

Afshin Rattansi: Well, the U.K. state-mandated BBC, Amnesty International – they are alleging your government killed 11,000 people using so-called “barrel bombs.”

 

[…]

 

Bashar Al-Assad: No war is a good war. This is a self-evident truth. You always have victims in any war. But to talk about an army or a state - to go and kills civilians and its own people – this is not realistic for a simple reason. The war in Syria was about capturing the hearts of the people. And you cannot capture the heart of the people by bombarding them.

 

[…]

 

There are a lot of misleading narratives in the West, just to show that the Syrian army is intentionally killing the civilians without any reason. And to show that those that they call them White Helmets, or any other hospital, which is a headquarter for the terrorists – they say that the Syrian army is only attacking humanitarian facilities in order for the civilians to suffer. Actually what happened is the opposite. Those civilians fled that area and came to the government side. Why didn’t we kill them? Why didn’t they flee to Turkey? This in itself refutes the Western narrative.

Afshin Rattansi: Why would the British government, or the Obama government – because Donald Trump, arguably, may have realized what had been going on – why do you think they wanted to support Al-Qaeda and ISIS?

 

[…]

 

Bashar Al-Assad: The problem with the United States - now, they [are] fighting a survival war, from their point of view. They are losing their hegemony. So they wanted to fight the Russians, the Iranians, the Syrians, whoever said “no.” Even their allies who said “no,” like the Western governments, they will fight with them. They need tools. They notice that in Iraq, it didn’t work by sending the army – they lost a lot. They paid the price even inside the United States. So it is much easier for them to send a proxy. Al-Qaeda is a proxy against the Syrian government, against the Russian government, and the Iranian government.

 

[…]

 

How did ISIS rise suddenly in 2014 - out of nowhere, out of nothing - in Iraq and Syria, at the same time, with American armaments? It is very clear. How could they smuggle millions of barrels of oil into Turkey under the supervision of American aircraft? How? Could the Americans [have] wanted to use them against the Syrian army?

 

[…]

 

Israel is our enemy, they occupy our land, and it is self-evident, intuitive, to be part of anything that could happen against Syria – any plan, any instigation – directly through their relations with the terrorists.

 

[…]

 

It is very clear there was correlation between the Israeli operations and the terrorist operations.

 

[…]

 

Afshin Rattansi: Is it your understanding, going on from what you have just said, that Al-Baghdadi is essentially trained by the United States, under torture in the Abu Ghuraib prison in Iraq?

Bashar Al-Assad: Yes. He was in their prisons, under their supervision. The Americans were the ones who released Al-Baghdadi. They wouldn’t release him without any role and suddenly he became the Caliph of the Muslims in the world, as he assigned himself. He was prepared by the Americans to play that role and we don’t believe this recent story of killing him. Maybe he is killed, but it is not about what they mentioned. The whole story was about whitewashing the American hand from being handing over the terrorists.

 

[…]

 

Maybe they wanted to change the whole name of ISIS into another name to bring ISIS as a moderate organization, to use again in the market against the Syrian government?

Afshin Rattansi: I’ll get on, I don’t know how the media will react to that… But of course, the Trump organization thanked your government when it came to the assassination of Al-Baghdadi…

Bashar Al-Assad:  We are not part of any operation.

Afshin Rattansi: You are not in a dialogue with Donald Trump?

Bashar Al-Assad: Not at all. There is no relation between any institution in Syria and any institution in the United States.

 

[…]

 

The problems started when the money of Qatar came into Syria and we had contact with many of the laborers and told them: “Why don’t you come to your workshop?” and they said: “In one hour, as we take in one week.” It was very simple. They paid them $50 at the very beginning, then later $100 a week, which was enough for him to live without work, so it was much easier for him to join the demonstrations. After that it was much easier for them to take them towards having armaments and shooting.

Jordanian Regime, Press: Restoration Of Jordanian Rule Over Border Enclaves Leased To Israel For Past 25 Years Is A Resounding Diplomatic Victory Over Israel

November 12, 2019
Jordan | Special Dispatch No. 8362
Under the Jordan-Israel peace treaty of 1994, two Jordanian enclaves along the border – Al-Baqoura (known as "Island of Peace" in English and "Naharayim" in Hebrew) in the north and Al-Ghamar ("Tzofar" in Hebrew) in the south – remained under Jordanian sovereignty but were leased to Israel for 25 years, enabling Israeli farmers to continue to farm there. The lease was to be renewed unless one of the sides informed the other a year in advance that it wished to end the arrangement. On October 21, 2018, Jordan's King Abdullah announced, via Twitter, that he had decided not to renew the lease. He wrote: "Al-Baqoura and Al-Ghamar were always a major priority for us, and our decision is not to renew the annexes in the peace treaty [pertaining to] Al-Baqoura and Al-Ghamar, out of our commitment to do whatever is required for Jordan and the Jordanians."[1] At the same time, Jordan's foreign minister sent a memorandum to his Israeli counterpart, informing him of the decision.[2]  King Abdullah's tweet (Source: Twitter.com/KingAbdullahII, October 21, 2018) The decision took effect on November 10, 2019, and at the opening of the fourth session of the Jordanian parliament the king announced "the expiration of the peace treaty annexes on Al-Baqoura and Al-Ghamar and the imposition of our full sovereignty over every inch of those lands."[3] The following day, November 11, 2019, the king visited the Al-Baqoura area,[4] accompanied by his son Crown Prince Hussein, and tweeted, "Jordanian sovereignty over its land is above all consideration."[5] King Abdullah and Crown Prince Hussein at Al-Baqoura area (Source: Al-Ghad, Jordan, November 12, 2019.) Jordanian Senate speaker Faisal Al-Fayez called the reclaiming of the enclaves a "victory for Jordan's diplomatic will, represented by King Abdullah II, which confirms Jordan's sovereignty over all its lands..." He added that the king's move was "an impressive and firm response to all those who question our national positions and our ability to defend our rights, our principles and the supreme interests of our country."[6] A Jordanian Foreign Ministry source explained that Jordan had "exercised its legal right, recognized in the [peace] treaty, not to renew the annexes," and clarified that it would not renew them in the future either. On the issue of the lands farmed by Israeli farmers in the enclaves, he added: "The peace treaty recognized the private ownership of 820 dunams in Al-Baqoura. Jordan will allow any Israeli citizen who proves his ownership [of the land] to apply for a visa at the Jordanian embassy in Tel Aviv and enter the kingdom through the official border crossings. [The kingdom] will respect his ownership rights according to Jordanian law... As for the 4,235 dunams of Al-Ghamar, they are Jordanian state land that the treaty allowed Israel to use, and today the annexes [pertaining to them] have expired... In accordance with its legal commitments, the kingdom will allow Israel to harvest the crops it planted [in Al-Ghamar] before the annexes expired, but [only] in accordance with Jordanian law..."[7] At a November 11 press conference convened by Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Al-Safadi, the minister said that in reclaiming the lands, Jordan had made a national decision serving its interests and reflecting its honoring of legal obligations. He noted that Jordan had proposed purchasing from Israel the private land it owns in Al-Baqoura but that Israel had rejected the proposition. Stressing that the kingdom would respect the rights of Israel's private property in the reclaimed enclaves, he underlined that Jorden is committed to the peace agreement. Asked about the change of the venue of the press conference, originally set in the Al-Baqoura area but ultimately held at Foreign Ministry headquarters in Amman, Al-Safadi responded that the change was due solely to technical considerations.[8] The reclaiming of the enclaves was joyfully received in Jordan, and was presented as a diplomatic victory over Israel and the harbinger of more of the same. Numerous articles in the Jordanian press praised the king and Jordan's diplomats for the achievement, and harshly criticized Israel, its citizens, and its policies. Inter alia, the articles said that the king's "historic decision" allowed Jordan to reclaim the enclaves that "had fallen prey to foreign settlers who arrived like ravens bearing evil tidings" and had for 25 years "sucked the goodness" out of Jordan's land and water for 25 years, and called the land's return to Jordan a defeat for Israel, "an arrogant occupying state" that "has become accustomed to thieving and usurping." Jordanian flag over the Al-Baqoura enclave (Source: Al-Ghad, Jordan, November 11, 2019) Below are translated excerpts from some of the Jordanian articles about the reclaiming of the enclaves. Former Al-Rai Editor: There Is No Greater Joy Than Victory Over A Thieving Enemy In his November 10, 2019 column in the government daily Al-Rai, titled "Tomorrow a New Page of Honor Will Be Written in our Jordanian History," the daily's former editor, Majid 'Asfour, wrote: "Ever since the King made the historic decision a year ago not to renew the annexes [to the peace treaty] pertaining to Israel's use of the lands of Al-Baqoura and Al-Ghamar, the Jordanians have been counting the days and eagerly anticipating the recovery of the land. Now, when tomorrow, Monday [November 11, 2019], is but a few hours away, our hearts yearn to see [the enclaves] even before our eyes [see them], and [our] feet wait to enter the land of Al-Baqoura and Al-Ghamar and reclaim the precious land after an absence of 25 years. During [these years,] these two areas longed for the bosom of the homeland, and [the homeland] too year the land and the water, which had fallen prey to foreign settlers who arrived like ravens bearing evil tidings. "Tomorrow will be a true national day for Jordan, a day like no other day, [a day] which will have ramifications... Starting tomorrow, there will be no privileges for non-Jordanians on the land of Al-Baquora and Al-Ghamar, and there will be no presence of the Zionists who had sucked the goodness out of our land and its delicious water for a quarter century... "There is nothing sweeter than land's return to its owners, other than the return of a child to the home of its family and the bosom of its mother after a forced separation. There is no greater joy than victory over an enemy accustomed to thieving and usurping without returning the stolen [property] to its owners – [an enemy] who finds it easier to give up its soul than to relinquish its control over a single piece of land. We know our enemy well, and we anticipated its efforts to torpedo our decision and to weaken our resolve to recover Al-Baqoura and Al-Ghamar by any means... But we stood firm and thwarted every attempt by the enemy and its deceptions. This strengthened our position and [transformed] our firm stance into a rock, against which the extremist Zionist aspirations to control Al-Baqoura and Al-Ghamar for another quarter century, or even another quarter of an hour, were dashed. "The recovery of Al-Baqoura and Al-Ghamar is clear proof for us Jordanians and for the Arab nation that adherence to justice and support for a strong and united internal front are the factors ensuring victory despite the enemy's military superiority. This is because the balance of power depends not only on quantity of ammunition and number of troops, but on the peoples' strength and perseverance, and on their willingness to sacrifice in order to achieve their goals."[9] November 10, 2019 Al-Rai headline: "Today, Al-Baqoura and Al-Ghamar Embrace The Homeland" Al-Ghad Editor: Today Amman Declares Victory Over Tel Aviv; This Is The Start Of More Victories Over Israel In his November 10, 2019 column titled "Al-Baqoura and Al-Ghamar: A Clear Victory," Makram Al-Tarawneh, editor-in-chief of the Al-Ghad daily, wrote: "All the political and media efforts of the Israeli occupation's leaders [to pressure] Jordan to extend the lease on the Al-Baqoura and Al-Ghamar [enclaves] met with resounding failure. This is proof of Jordan's ability to extract its rights [from Israel] and to protect them, no matter what its firm position may cost... "For an entire year, Israel made many empty arguments and countless attempts to blackmail Jordan, but today the moment of has truth arrived and Amman declared the defeat of Tel Aviv and proclaimed its victory over this arrogant occupying state. What makes this victory even more magnificent is that it came amidst a change in the international diplomatic arena, led by the U.S., involving blatant pro-Israel bias [along with] disregard of the Palestinian issue and of the [efforts to] end the conflict and ensure the continuation of the peace agreements as a top priority. According to the American perception, which distorts the facts, Israel is no longer an element that destabilizes the region, for the [needle of the] compass has moved towards Iran, at the expense of the region's fateful issues. "Jordan's achievement, and its steadfastness in the face of the stormy winds blowing from the west bank of the [Jordan] river [i.e. Israel] throughout the era of [Israel's] radical right-wing government, will surely pave the way to confronting Israel's arrogance in many [other] aspects of the [relations] between the two sides. [These aspects include] the issues of water, the Muslim holy places, and the [Palestinian] refugees. The victor in such an important battle as this [concerning the enclaves] can win other battles as well. "Today Israel must realize that the adoption of provocative foreign policies and extremist positions vis-à-vis [other] countries with the aim of winning internal battles and improving the ruling party's position in partisan struggles so it can remain in power and... gain more votes from the radical right are measures that will no longer avail it. [This is] because its interest [now] lies in separating its [foreign and domestic] policies, and because developing its ties with Jordan requires renewing the trust destroyed by [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu, who misses no opportunity to violate his commitments and the agreements signed between the two sides. "The current situation demonstrates the resounding defeat of the policy of the Israeli right, which thought for a moment that it could perpetuate the Zionist dream to this very day. Conversely, Jordan scored a clear victory by sophisticated diplomatic means, by continuing to act prudently and patiently but with unwavering determination."[10]   Former Jordanian Minister: The 1994 Atmosphere Of Peace Is No More; Improvement Of Relations Depends On Israel In his column in the Al-Ghad daily, on November 9, 2019, Muhammad Hussein Al-Momani, head of Al-Ghad's board of directors as well as former government spokesman, and former Jordanian minister of media affairs, wrote: "...The king's decision not to renew [the lease on the enclaves]... met with sweeping national approval, as did his directive to the relevant authorities to inform Israel, as specified in the annexes [to the peace treaty], that the lease on these Jordanian areas had expired. The Jordanians regarded this decision as [proof of] the King's determination to confront the behavior of Israel's right-wing government, which has never stopped harming Jordan's interests, both on the bilateral level and those pertaining to the permanent settlement in the peace process [with the Palestinians]... "The positive atmosphere of peace that prevailed during the signing of the Wadi Araba [Jordan-Israel peace] treaty and the [treaty's] annexes concerning Al-Ghamar and Al-Baqoura was completely different from the atmosphere that prevails today. The extent of the mutual political [mis]trust... does not allow dialogue on such sensitive sovereignty-related issues. "It will be possible to advance many issues related to bilateral cooperation between Jordan and Israel if Israel's next government wants to strengthen the ties and renew the trust, and if it understands that Jordan has existential and strategic interests and will not remain silent if Israel toys with them as part of its endless populistic elections game. If the next Israeli government is brave enough to realize that it is imperative to restore to the Palestinians the rights and justice of which they have been deprived, then both countries will be able to achieve security and stability, and even open up a broad horizon of prosperity and development."[11]   [1] Twitter.com/KingAbdullahII, October 21, 2018.

Hamas Leader Yahya Sinwar: We Have Hundreds Of Kilometers Of Underground Tunnels, Thousands Of Traps, Thousands Of Anti-Tank Missiles; We Will Crush Tel Aviv

November 12, 2019
Palestine | Special Dispatch No. 8361
Hamas Leader Yahya Sinwar said in a November 4, 2019 speech that aired on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas-Gaza) that Hamas has hundreds of kilometers of underground tunnels, hundreds of underground and above-ground command centers, thousands of traps, and thousands of locally-made anti-tank missiles, which he claimed can destroy Israel's tanks. He said that Hamas has thousands of missiles that will turn Israel’s cities into ruins and ghost cities if Israel makes any "stupid" mistake. Addressing Israeli politician and former IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz, who is currently trying to form a coalition in the Israeli government, Sinwar threatened: "We will make you curse the day your mother gave birth to you." Sinwar also threatened: "We will crush Tel Aviv and cause its sirens to wail morning, evening, and night for six whole months." In addition, Sinwar recalled a time when the Al-Qassam Brigades ran out of metal pipes for making missiles and a simple farmer led its members to former Israeli settlements in the Gaza Strip, where he allegedly showed them metal pipes that were part of an irrigation system that had been left behind when Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip. Sinwar claimed that these pipes were enough to produce missiles for ten years. To view the clip of Hamas Leader Yahya Sinwar on MEMRI TV, click here or below. "We Now Have Hundreds Of Kilometers Of Underground Tunnels" Yahya Sinwar: "We now have hundreds of kilometers of underground tunnels. [...] "We have many hundreds of control and command rooms, both underground and above ground. "We have hundreds and thousands of traps, and if the enemy so much as thinks to enter the Gaza Strip, our sons will go out... You and your brothers will emerge from the belly of the earth... The earth will spew forth our men and our youth, who will go out to [the enemy's] tanks from the belly of the earth with anti-tank missiles that were manufactured in the Gaza Strip. [...] "[These missiles] will turn the strongest tanks in the world – the Merkava IV – into ash-covered metal, Allah willing." [...] "Today, By The Grace Of Allah, We Have Many Thousands Of Missiles That Will Turn The Occupation's Cities Into Ruins And Ghost Cities" "Dear brothers and sisters, in 2014 we had dozens – perhaps only a few hundred – of high-quality anti-tank missiles. Today, by the grace of Allah and the efforts of the youth of Gaza, we possess thousands of these missiles. [...] "Today, by the grace of Allah, we have many thousands of missiles that will turn the occupation's cities into ruins and ghost cities – Allah willing – if the enemy makes any stupid mistake against Gaza or against one of our great national causes." [...] "We Say To [Gantz]: We Are Waiting For You, If You Are Able To Form A Government... With Allah's Help, We Will Make You Curse The Day Your Mother Gave Birth To You" "We have seen that some of the occupation leaders are making threats and warnings, and some of them have joined the ranks of those who are boastful, like [Israeli Ministers] Lieberman and Bennett... Now we see that [Benny] Gantz has also become [boastful], threatening and warning... [...] "We say to him: We are waiting for you, if you are able to form a government, so that we can see what you can do. [...] "With Allah's help, we will make you curse the day your mother gave birth to you. [...] "You will see, and the world will see, that we have patiently suffered through the hunger, the injuries, and the siege so that we can build the power with which we can rub your nose, and the nose of your country and its military, in the mud." [...] "We Will Crush Tel Aviv And Cause Its Sirens To Wail Morning, Evening, And Night For Six Whole Months" "We will crush Tel Aviv and cause its sirens to wail morning, evening, and night for six whole months." [...] "These [Pipes] Would Be Enough For The Al-Qassam Brigades To Manufacture Missiles For The Next Ten Years" "One day, some leaders of the Al-Qassam [Brigades] came. They were [responsible] for [missile] production. They said: 'There are no pipes with which we can produce missiles. We are out of pipes. There is a ban on bringing iron in from outside, and we cannot bring them through the tunnels – these are long pipes. We will cease production within a month.' I said that Allah will help us find a way. Then, a simple farmer approached one of the men from the Brigades. He said: 'I heard that you're having a problem with pipes for missile production.' The young man told him this was true. The [farmer] said: 'I will give you the solution for this.' [The young man said:] 'What is it?' He answered: 'Come with me.' They went together to the liberated [Israeli] settlements [in Gush Katif]. The [farmer] said: 'Stop here and let's get out [of the car]. From here, walk five kilometers, and you will find 10-inch pipes. When the occupiers left the Gaza Strip, they left the irrigation lines. Come here. From here, if you walk straight for 10 kilometers, you will find eight-inch pipes. Come this way. Walk six kilometers, and there are [various] kinds of piping. It is easy to dig here.' The brothers started digging and removed from the ground the pipes that the occupier left behind when it left the Gaza Strip. These would be enough for the Al-Qassam Brigades to manufacture missiles for the next ten years."
