It didn’t take Iran too long to study the 12 American needs , the most important points of that concerning the security of Israel’s security against the presence of Iranian forces on the Syrian-Jordanian and the Syrian-Israeli border along with the growth of Iran’s nuclear and missile programmes, until Iran gave a severe and immediate reaction. This response was the closest way to Israel’s heart, i.e. that a”reassuring” message carried by the Iranian Ambassador to Jordan, Mojtaba Ferdosipour, through an interview with Jordan’s Al-Ghad paper. He stated that the installation of Iranian forces in Syria doesn’t incorporate the southern area, i.e. that the Iranian forces have not and won’t approach the lines of contact with Israel, neither from the past nor in the long run. This usually means the American demand regarding the block of Iranian threats to the own neighbors who are allies of the US and also to quit threatening to erase Israel is actually being executed by the”resistant and opposing” Iran.
It’s no coincidence that the favorable reaction from Iran to Israel coincided with Allied statements stating that the Iranian and Hezbollah forces’ withdrawal is not up for debate. This means that an arrangement was passed under the table between 2 parties concerned with America’s requirements (Iran and Hezbollah) and Israel that obligates the 2 parties to protect Israel’s borders as opposed to threaten them. Consequently, their presence in Syria comes from the context of the truce agreement in effect in Syria because the October 1973 war, ensured by Russia, who’s an ally of the Syrian and Israeli sides. This sets the choice of implementing the remainder of the 12 needs, most of which serve Israel’s interests, for instance, nuclear and missile programs and the help of terrorist business, back on the table. Perhaps this is the reason behind the coincidence of the two answers: the Syrian response to Russia’s demand to eliminate foreign forces from Syria and the Iranian reaction to the American demand to quit threatening Israel.
It would appear that the Syrian regime picked the perfect moment to go into the international bargaining bazaar. On the flip side, it passes it with Iran and Russia, in order to increase its share within the agreements reached between Russia and Turkey. On the other hand, with Israel and its ally, the US, declaring the validity of Iran’s presence as being equal to Russia’s presence in Syria, only days after Putin fulfilled Al-Assad in Sochi (17 May) and 2 days after the United States announced its strategy towards Iran, indicates that there are options on the table to the Syrian regime. Such options include preserving its operational role in adapting the process of causing confusion concerning the challenges in the area and altering the priorities from fighting Israel to fighting terrorism. This makes this role critical in the rapprochement process between Iran and its own allies and Israel. At precisely the exact same time, it represents a Russian fascination with maintaining the threat of war from the areas of influence in Syria.
Therefore, it’s not right to rush into predicting the reality of this future Russian-Iranian battle in the area. It is also way too premature to read the Syrian response as putting the Syrian-Russian connections in a state of impasse and confrontationas much as we could read the announcements made by Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Al-Miqdad as being Russian manipulations of the answer to America’s 12 demands, which Moscow considered to be due to its influence in the area, and consequently eliminating it in any future role in the bargaining process on the dilemma of the Iranian presence in Syria. This is exactly what prepared Iran’s response, in Jordanian networking, a reply that carries within it a vision for the future of calm relations with Israel.
We can declare that Israel has recently begun playing a controlling role in the area particularly, particularly in the battle over Syria. By means of concentrated and powerful strikes on Iran’s centres of military influence in Syria, Israel is applying the pressure required to restrict Iran’s role and discourage its own resources from acting outside of the regions drawn to their own. It follows that any Iranian presence in Syria and Lebanon, after America’s requirements, is accepted by Israel and under American protection, and therefore the mask of resistance and resistance is removed. Its functional role will shift from the damaging sectarian role it played in Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen and Syria, into the function of the policeman who protects Israel on the one hand and functions as the American baton in the region on the other.
Iran’s messages of reassurance to Israel in the form of moving away from its own borders will be accompanied by numerous different messages, as it had been preceded by the concept of ruining the Yarmouk refugee camp in southern Damascus and turning it into destroys . They went even farther by looting anything that may evoke the memories of the Palestinians, by the right of return to the geographical region that attracts them together in the camp, the most essential feature of that is their dedication to their identity and their creation of a tiny homeland where they paint the fantasy of the homeland Palestine. Iran has made several offerings, but it would appear that the price for Israel’s approval is higher than expected, and we can’t forecast how satisfied it will be with those reassurances till Israel either increases its level of preparedness as large as possible or is lulled into a sense of security and stability, ensured by Iran.
