WANA (Jan 08, 2024) – Tehran had already declared before that the U.S. was trying to control the scope of the Gaza war by sending various messages. Americans were using threatening language in the first weeks, and these days, their begging tone is louder and more apparent.

 

Amir Abdullahian, Iran’s foreign minister, announced in the last days of 2023 that America and Israel, alongside each other, have reached an impasse on the issue of Gaza, and today, the Americans are talking about how to have a dignified exit from this crisis that they caused.

 

America has always been after the benefits of Israel’s friendship, but it does not necessarily want to pay too much for Tel Aviv’s foolish acts.

 

The war has reached a point where it is not easy to manage. Attacks on American military bases in West Asia have increased severely. Resistance groups consider America as the leading supporter of the Zionists in the killing of Palestinian residents in Gaza.

Hezbollah has intensified its attacks on the north of Israel. It has become difficult to handle the Palestinians supporting Houthis; the Houthis demand putting more pressure on Tel Aviv to stop the killing of Palestinians. The body of the Islamic world endorses the measures of the Houthis against the naval interests of Israel and the United States. The resistance groups in Iraq and Syria are not letting go of the Americans, and they constantly attack their military bases.

 

Washington must accept that it is in big trouble, and now, the only way to get out of this predicament is to ask for Tehran’s help.

 

America believes that the resistance groups in the region will not do anything against Israel or the interests of the U.S. without Iran’s orders or commands. Still, by rejecting this claim, Tehran has repeatedly stated that Hamas in Palestine, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and the Houthis in Yemen, as well as the resistance groups in Iraq and Syria, act based on their discretion and determinations and are not necessarily following to Tehran’s decisions.

Iran’s foreign minister, Amir Abdullahian, held a press conference on the sidelines of the “Tehran International Conference on Palestine” in December 2023, in which he announced that ” The Americans regularly ask that we help to stop the war, but we explicitly told them (the Americans) that you, who are on one side of the war, (i.e. support of Israel) are not in a position to advise others to stop and not expand the scope of the war.”

 

Israel’s war with Gaza has entered its fourth month. Contrary to expectations, Gaza fighters are still highly motivated to resist. Day by day, the world is becoming more united in support of Palestine. Every week, marches against Zionists are held in every corner of the world. The loud voice of hatred towards the Israelis is annoying to the Zionists. The West has become a critic of some of Israel’s behaviors that are against human rights.¬†

 

The United States considers solving the Gaza crisis more complicated than it previously imagined, and therefore, as the leading supporter and motivator of Tel Aviv to enter this war that has left thousands dead, it is trying to save itself and its main ally in the region, meaning Israel.

AMERICA’S RECENT MESSAGE TO IRAN

Today, January 8, 2024, in an interview with an Arab media, Iran’s ambassador in Syria talked about the U.S.’s begging to be saved from this crisis: “10 days ago, we received a message from the United States through one of the Persian Gulf countries that offered to resolve the crisis in the entire region.”

 

According to Hossein Akbari, Iran’s ambassador in Syria, one of the Persian Gulf countries, conveyed Washington’s message to the Iranians, and the same Arab country sent a high-level delegation to Tehran to discuss the details of this message.

 

America’s message includes a request regarding preventing the expansion of the circle of war as a basis for solving regional crises.

 

“Our response to America’s proposal was that Tehran’s allies have the right to decide their fate and their nation’s fate on their own. In response to America’s proposal, we emphasized that the political decisions of our allies are independent, and we do not make decisions in their place,” Said Akbari, Iran’s ambassador to Syria.

Tehran does not have good experiences when it comes to helping America in conflicts. Iran helped the U.S. in Afghanistan to defeat al-Qaeda and the Taliban, but in the end, it was called the “Axis of Evil.”

 

In many regional crises, Iran has tried to be a good mediator, but every time America and the West got rid of a crisis with the help of Iran, they showed the sharpness of their teeth to Iran the next day.
