MESOP NEWS TODAYS SYRIA Analysis: Hezbollah redeploys forces after withdrawal from Syrian-Lebanese border positions – David Daoud is an Arabic-Language Analyst at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
BY DAVID DAOUD | May 20, 2017 | firstname.lastname@example.org | @DavidADaoud
Last week, Hezbollah’s Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah gave a televised speech on Al-Manar on the anniversary of the assassination of the group’s commander, Mustafa Badreddine. In addition to his usual anti-Israel and anti-Saudi diatribes, Nasrallah announced the withdrawal of Hezbollah’s forces from the Lebanese-Syrian border and the hand-over of their positions to the Lebanese army. Their mission – to repel the threat of Sunni militias to Hezbollah’s Baalbek and Beqaa Valley strongholds – had been accomplished, he announced. But there is more to the story: Hezbollah’s forces were not demobilized, they were merely redeployed. It appears that Hezbollah has repositioned its men for the ongoing battles in Syria.

MESOP INSIGHT LOOKING : Iraq’s Religious Militias Push Back Against A Communist Revival
By Mustafa Habib – Niqash – 17 May 2017 – Last week’s kidnapping of seven activists in Baghdad could be another sign of increasing tensions between secular parties in Iraq and the country’s ruling religious groups. Is history repeating?
Last week, an unidentified armed group kidnapped a number of younger civil society activists from their small apartment in the Sadoun area of central Baghdad. After three days it was announced that the young men had been freed, after intervention by Iraq’s Minister of the Interior, Qassim al-Araji.In announcing the release though, the Ministry made no mention of who might have been responsible for the kidnapping even though many locals blamed members of one or other of the Shiite Muslim militias, who run security in certain parts of the city and who have been controversial in the recent past.Some of the young activists who were abducted also happened to be members of the Iraqi Communist Party. The Communists have been firm supporters of recent demonstrations in Baghdad during which protestors called for an end to corruption and demanded political reform. The Iraqi Communist party is just one of a number of civil society and political groups uniting to take part in, and organize, the protests. Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=85932
MESOP NEWS : US GENERAL DUNFORD : US Pitches Plan to Russia to Avoid Armed Conflict in Syria
2017-05-20 18:27 GMT – WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. is proposing to Russia a plan for managing the battlefield in the main oil-producing region of Syria.
U.S.-backed forces face a complex situation amid Syria’s ongoing civil war. They are fighting Islamic extremists but are also in conflict with Syrian forces backed by Russia.The U.S. sees the area in question as the next major battleground in the evolving coalition campaign to destroy the Islamic State group.
Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford is declining to describe the proposal in detail. But he says the Russian military is eager to find ways to avoid an armed U.S.-Russian conflict in the area around Deir el-Zour on the Euphrates River. The proposal comes as President Donald Trump pushes for an accelerated campaign to destroy Islamic State militants. www.mesop.de

MESOP „KULTURTRÄGER IM ZEITALTER DER LBGTQ GESELLSCHAFT“ – in hoc signo vinces
Berliner GRÜNE & LINKE wollen kein Kreuz, auch kein restauriertes, sondern aktive Submission
Linke und Grüne wollen kein christliches Symbol auf…
Aber mal anders gefragt zum Thema “Kreuz auf dem Berliner Stadtschloss”:
Was hat denn generell ein Kreuz auf einem Schloss zu suchen in der heutigen Zeit? Muss das denn sein? Da könnte ich auch sagen: “Ich, als Atheistin fühle mich da genauso in meinen Gefühlen verletzt, als wenn ich eine Kopftuchträgerin sehe!”
Wer nimmt denn darauf Rücksicht?
Ali Yldz Linke und Grüne wollen kein christliches Symbol auf der Kuppel des Stadtschlosses? Hier wird ein barockes Kunstwerk rekonstruiert! Das kann man sich nicht nach Moden aktueller politischer Korrektheit zurechtschnitzen.
Katharina Raudonat Ali Yldz hat recht – ein barockes Schloss restauriert, das ist doch keine Mehrzweckhalle.
