عزت الدوري يبعث برسالة مثيرة لإيران.. ماذا جاء فيها


 كشف السياسي والنائب العراقي السابق حسن العلوي، الاثنين، عن رسالة سلّمها إلى إيران بطلب من عزت الدوري نائب الرئيس العراقي في نظام صدام حسين.

وعرض العلوي رسالة الدوري في لقاء تلفزيوني، وقال إن "عزت الدوري فوضني لإيصال رسالة إلى إيران وعقد تفاهمات معها ومع أمريكا والاعتذار للكويت عن الغزو عام 1990".

وقال السياسي العراقي المعروف، إن "الدوري تحدث في رسالته عن أحداث ومعلومات لا يعلمها غيره محاولا تأكيد أنه لا يزال على قيد الحياة".

وأضاف العلوي، أن "الرسالة حملها إليه مساعد عزت الدوري في حزب البعث، الذي زاره في محل إقامته بمدينة أربيل عاصمة إقليم كردستان العراق قبل شهرين".

وأشار القيادي السابق في حزب البعث العراقي إلى أن "الدوري امتدح إيران في صفحتين من الرسالة الموجهة إليها، وأشاد بها، فيما دعا إلى عقد تفاهمات مع حزب البعث". 

وأوضح العلوي، أن "الرسالة تضمنت عرضا للوساطة بين حزب البعث وبين إيران وأمريكا والكويت، وعقد تفاهمات وصفها بالسلمية"، مبينا أنه "نقل رسالة الدوري إلى إيران عبر حزب الله".

وتضمنت الرسالة بحسب العلوي، تأكيد الدوري أن تنظيم الدولة زائل، وحذر من ظهور تنظيم جديد.    

أبل تطرح طرازا جديدا من آيفون

       طرحت شركة "أبل" الأميركية، مؤخرا، نسخة جديدة من هاتف "آيفون 6"، في الأسواق الآسيوية، لتنضم بذلك إلى شركات رقمية تعيد إصدار أجهزة قديمة بعد إدخال تحسينات طفيفة عليها.
وبحسب ما ذكر موقع "BGR"، فقد تم طرح هاتف "آيفون 6" بلون ذهبي، وذاكرة تخزين تصل إلى 32 غيغابايت، وهي سعة لم تكن متاحة في وقت سابق.
وأتاحت "أبل"، في وقت سابق، للراغبين في اقتناء هواتف آيفون 6، أجهزة بسعة 16 و64 و128 غيغابايت فقط، ثم أضافت الطراز الجديد "بهدوء" أي بدون ضجة إعلامية.
واللافت في الأمر، بحسب متابعي التقنية، هو أن "أبل" لم تقم بطرح الهاتف الجديد في محلاتها المعتمدة بالسوق الآسيوية، وفضلت أن تقوم بتسويقه عبر شركة وسيط هي "تايوان موبايل".
ولم توضح "أبل" ما إذا كانت ستطرح الهاتف الجديد للبيع في مناطق أخرى من العالم أم إنها ستقتصر على المنطقة الآسيوية التي تشكل إحدى أسواقها المفضلة.

Turkish PM to present interim cabinet to Erdogan on Friday


The Islamic State group used poison gas in attacks against Kurdish-controlled areas of northeastern Syria in late June, a Syrian Kurdish militia and a group monitoring the Syrian conflict said on Saturday.
Two UK-based organizations investigating the attack said they had confirmed Islamic State's use of chemical weapons against Kurdish forces and civilian targets in Syria and Iraq, where they said chemical agents were also used in an attack on an Iraqi Kurdish peshmerga position on June 21 or 22.
Kurdish forces are playing a vital role in the fight against Islamic State in both Syria and Iraq. The ultra-radical group has seized wide areas of both countries, declaring them part of a cross-border "caliphate" claiming to rule all Muslims.
The Syrian Kurdish YPG militia said Islamic State had fired "makeshift chemical projectiles" on June 28 at a YPG-controlled area of the city of Hasaka, and at YPG positions south of the town of Tel Brak to the northeast of Hasaka city.
It was the first Islamic State attack of its kind against the YPG, said Redur Xelil, spokesman for the militia.
The type of chemical used had not been definitively determined, he said. None of the YPG fighters exposed to the gas had died because they were quickly taken to hospital.
The White House said it was aware of the reports of chemical weapons use and was seeking additional information.
"We continue to monitor these reports closely," Alistair Baskey, a spokesman for the White House National Security Council, said in a statement.
The YPG has emerged as an important partner for the US-led campaign against Islamic State. Backed by US-led air strikes, the YPG has seized wide areas of northern Syria from Islamic State this year.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based group that reports on the war using an activist network on the ground, said it had also documented the use of poison gas by Islamic State in an attack on a village near Tel Brak on June 28.
It said 12 YPG fighters had been exposed to the gas. The Observatory also said it had received information about the gas attack on Hasaka city but gave no further details.
In a statement, the YPG said its forces had captured industrial grade gas masks in the last four weeks from Islamic State fighters, "confirming that they are prepared and equipped for chemical warfare along this sector of the front".
It said soldiers exposed to the gas "experienced burning of the throat, eyes and nose, combined with severe headaches, muscle pain and impaired concentration and mobility".
"Prolonged exposure to the chemicals also caused vomiting," it added.
The YPG said it was investigating Islamic State's use of chemical weapons with help from international experts from UK organizations Conflict Armament Research and Sahan Research.
In a separate statement, those organisations said the three attacks - two in northeastern Syria and one in Iraq - were "the first documented use by (Islamic State) forces of projectile-delivered chemical agents against Kurdish forces and civilian targets".
In the attack in Iraq, Islamic State forces had fired a projectile "containing a liquid chemical agent at the peshmerga Mosul Dam checkpoint", they said. "The characteristics and clinical effects of this substance are consistent with a chlorine chemical agent," the statement said.
Iraqi Kurdish authorities said earlier this year they had evidence Islamic State had used chlorine against their peshmerga fighters in northern Iraq.
Reports of poison gas attacks by the Islamic State group could not be independently verified by Reuters.
The Nusra Front, al Qaeda's affiliate in the Syrian war, has previously accused Islamic State of setting a booby trap using barrels of chlorine.

Egypt Billionare Offers to Buy Island for Refugees


Agence France-Presse
Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris has offered to buy an island off Greece or Italy and develop it to help hundreds of thousands of people fleeing from Syria and other conflicts.
The telecoms tycoon first announced the initiative on Twitter.

"Greece or Italy sell me an island, I'll call its independence and host the migrants and provide jobs for them building their new country," he wrote.
More than 2,300 people have died at sea trying to reach Europe since January, many of them Syrians who fled their country's four-and-a-half year conflict.
Sawiris said in a television interview that he would approach the governments of Greece and Italy about his plan.
Asked by AFP whether he believed it could work, he said: "Of course it's feasible."
"You have dozens of islands which are deserted and could accommodate hundreds of thousands of refugees."
Sawiris said an island off Greece or Italy could cost between $10 million and $100 million, but added the "main thing is investment in infrastructure"

There would be "temporary shelters to house the people, then you start employing the people to build housing, schools, universities, hospitals.
"And if things improve, whoever wants to go back (to their homeland) goes back," said Sawiris, whose family developed the popular El Gouna resort on Egypt's Red Sea coast.

He conceded such a plan could face challenges, including the likely difficulty of persuading Greece or Italy to sell an island, and figuring out jurisdiction and customs regulations.

But those who took shelter would be treated as "human beings," he said. "The way they are being treated now, they are being treated like cattle."

Sawiris is the chief executive of Orascom TMT, which operates mobile telephone networks in a number of Middle Eastern and African countries plus Korea as well as underwater communications networks.
He also owns an Egyptian television channel.

Fletcher's Wake-Up Call to The Mideast Gem


Tom Fletcher could have been another ambassador to live in Lebanon for years, leaving office later on for another mission, at a new country; however, the man had other plans.

He decided to serve us a huge blow before departing from Lebanon.

The British ambassador has proven his love to Lebanon is grander than that of many citizens, and especially politicians.

He had professed it repeatedly during his stay in the country just as he bawled it up his lungs when leaving, as if intending to hit us where it hurts the most in order to shake us up.

Fletcher kicked off a 3-day “farewell journey” hike from Batroun to  Beirut, stopping in Jbeil, Jounieh, Dbayeh, strolling down small alleys and national landmarks.

This young, vibrant diplomat thought himself to small for his mission in Lebanon only to find out that he’s too old for it, wrapping up his farewell note with “so..Yalla, Bye.”

The letter that rocked the political and press circles relayed his deep understanding of the “Idea of Lebanon” that "Lebanese called to fight for and not over."

Despite describing some politicians as oligarchs, Fletcher assured us in his letter that the Lebanon he would always remember is the one that “seeks not assistance but oxygen, a country that does not condemn the world but embraces it, and a people that is no longer mired in the past but arguing around the possibilities of a brighter future. “

Citing a line by the poet Gibran Khalil Gibran: “You have your Lebanon and I have mine,” the ambassador added that “when the Middle East was in flames, and its people caught between tyrants and terrorists, the Lebanon I will remember sent its soldiers to protect the borders; confronted daily frustrations to build businesses and to educate its children; and showed extraordinary generosity to outsiders, be they ambassadors or refugees.”

From Beirutopia, he moved thence to the experience of distressing and disturbing Lebanese reality: “Bullets and botox. Dictators and divas. Warlords and wasta. Machiavellis and mafia. Guns, greed and God. Game of Thrones with RPGs. Human rights and hummus rights. Four marathons, 100 blogs, 10,000 tweets, 59 calls on Prime Ministers, 600+ long dinners, 52 graduation speeches, two #OneLebanon rock concerts, 43 grey hairs, a job swap with a domestic worker, a walk the length of the coast (Video). I got to fly a Red Arrow upside down, and a fly over Lebanon’s northern border to see how LAF is enforcing Lebanese sovereignty. I was even offered a free buttock lift - its value exceeded our £140 gift limit, so that daunting task is left undone.”

“This is a time to prosper, not simply exist,” was his last advice, painting Lebanon as a diamond that needs to shine on.
