Hawzah News Agency (Baghdad, Iraq) – The brilliant performance in the Iraqi and Syrian battlefields against the occupation and terrorism, plus adopting firm and wise positions in backing Islamic Republic of Iran, has turned al-Nujaba Islamic Resistance Movement into a brilliant group on the Axis of Resistance.
Having enraged the Zionist Regime through the formation of "Golan Liberation” Brigade, the Movement has become the target of hostile sanctions and the secretary general of al-Nujaba, Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi has been on the US sanction list since ۲۰۰۸.
Their provision of the Iranian flood victims with aids in the provinces of Khuzestan, Lorestan and Ilam using ۱۰۰ light and heavy vehicles made the front-page headline of many news agencies in the beginning of the new year.
Due to the escalation of the tensions between Tehran and the US, accompanied by the threats of the US officials against our country, we decided to conduct an interview with the chairman of al-Nujaba’s Political Board, Hujjat al-Islam Ali al-Asadi and asked his views and his affiliated movement on the recent developments.
The top-rank member of al-Nujaba Islamic Movement, answering the question of Quds NA reporter on the claims made by the American officials about the threats posed by Iran and its Iraqi allies against the interests and forces of the US, he remarked, “such accusations are made through the media and psychological warfare against Islamic Republic of Iran and they are effective only inside their own country; as they are attempting to justify Trump’s policies for the US nation”.
“Using such pretexts, they are pressing Baghdad to come to terms with the longer military presence of the US in Iraq; as they are terrified by the determination of the Iraqi parliament for passing an act obliging the Iraqi government to oust the US forces”, he further mentioned.
About the causes of the US act of sending a new carrier and equipment to the region and the assumption of the outbreak of a war, he maintained, “due to two reasons, the outbreak of a war is a remote possibility; firstly, the supreme leader of the revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei spurned this option, and we know that his utterances are all put forth accurately, wisely and based on cognition”.
The chairman of al-Nujaba’s Political Board added, “but the second reason, the enemies have recognized that threatening and economic blockade are futile, and whatever is mentioned on their readiness for war is stated through their psychological warfare in order to force Iran to sit behind the negation desk with Trump”.
Sheikh Ali al-Asadi reiterated, “more importantly, the US threats are made in order to strike fears of Iran into the Arab states and milking them more. I am not considering it as a simple case, but the accurate information suggest that no war will occur. Both parties, Iran and the US have also announced that they don’t seek a war”.
Nonetheless, he pointed out, “but there is a third party seeking to spark a war; Israel and some Arab countries are pushing the US towards a war; even if they succeed, as the worst situation, in my eye, the Islamic Republic of Iran is astute enough to convert such threats into opportunity”.
