US presence in Persian Gulf only fuels insecurity: Iran chief commander

Speaking to reporters in the southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas on Sunday, the top Iranian military chief said US President Donald Trump's plan to withdraw troops from Syria was of no significance for defensive and security missions in the region. "The US exit from Syria was the humiliating withdrawal of a country that was present there without the consent and approval of the [Syrian] people and the legal government," Baqeri said. Iran's military chief noted that the Americans have always sowed insecurity wherever they had a presence, adding, "Their retreat from Syria and other parts of the region will certainly lead to increased security and peace." Baqeri emphasized that the Persian Gulf countries are capable of ensuring security on their own and the US presence in the region has no outcome except for creating insecurity. In a reversal from previously stated US policy, President Trump earlier this month ordered a “full” and “rapid” withdrawal of US troops from Syria as he vowed the United States would no longer be the "policeman of the Middle East." In reaction to Trump's decision, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on December 22 that the US military presence in the region has been "wrong and a source of tension.” "From the start, the entry and presence of American forces in the region has been a mistake, illogical and a source of tension and inflammation, and a main cause of instability and insecurity," Qassemi said. Secretary of the Syrian People's Assembly Khaled al-Abboud also attributed the US plan to the resistance and steadfastness that the Syrian nation and government have demonstrated throughout the foreign-sponsored militancy in the Arab country. “Washington’s decision to pull out its troops from Syria was not the result of a deal or negotiations between Syria and the United States or Europe; but rather it was because of the steadfastness of the Syrian people and government,” Abboud said. According to a new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll published by The Hill on Saturday, a majority of Americans have expressed support for the pulling of the US troops out of Syria. The majority of the participants in the survey supported President Trump’s decision to withdraw US troops from Syria and reduce the country’s military presence in Afghanistan.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: https://www.gofundme.com/rationalbeliever Paypal: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=EN79XRUF35QWL **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
