Nasrallah as Khamenei’s secret troubleshooter in Iraq

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei secretly asked Hizballah’s Hassan Nasrallah to act as his emissary for mending Shiite fences in Iraq. The community was stormily divided against Baghdad’s ties with Iran both before and since the US assassination of Qassam Soleimani on Jan. 3.
This step is disclosed exclusively by DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources.

Nasrallah promptly assigned a shadowy Hizballah figure to take a hand.

Hussein Kawtharani is the central liaison officer between the Lebanese Shiite chief and Iraq’s pro-Iran Shiite militia leaders. He also controls the Iranian-Hizballah financial fund in Iraq. In the days of Soleimani and Iraq’s PMU (Popular Mobilization Units) chief Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis – both of whom died in the US strike on Baghdad – it was Kawtharani who, in consultation with them both, doled out funds to the Iraqi militias. Soleimani used the size of their allowances to keep their leaders in line. The exceptional power the Hizballah chief wields as wire-puller in both Baghdad as well as Beirut has never before been revealed. Using him as a troubleshooter in Iraq was Iran’s comeback for the new sanctions the US imposed on Hizballah and Israel’s campaign for the world to designate the entire movement a terrorist organization.

Our sources reveal that Kawlharani set two processions in motion for putting the turbulent Iraqi Shiite house in order:

  1. Finding an Iraqi prime minister acceptable to Tehran and Beirut.
  2. A request to the supreme leader via Nasrallah to tone down the violent threats of revenge coming from Iranian Revolutionary Guards and other officials. He explained that the heated eve of war climate was not conducive to addressing the complicated problems of Iraq’s Shiites.

The outcome of his mission is as follows:

By Wednesday, Jan. 22, Iraq still had no prime minister, because the largest Shiite bloc in the Iraqi parliament headed by the unpredictable cleric Moqtada Sadr refuses to play ball with any of Tehran’s choices. While initially willing to call out an anti-US street demonstration in support of Tehran, the influential cleric has since reverted to his original demand for a nonpartisan government of experts to assume power in Baghdad.

    That Nasrallah is asking Tehran to tone down its restoric shows that Nasrallah is his own man and provides a responsible and beneficial influence on the region. We need more parties who are able to work for peace in the region. Hopefully Zionism and its APAC Lobby can learn from this and start working towards peace in the region.

      You gullible (most likely liberal leftist.) Such a dupe stooge. Stay out of politics. Do us all a favor and DO NIT VITE, STAY HOME.

      Nasrallah is wise. He hides in his bunker 24-7. The Great USA (The Great Trump) has all these terrorists looking up making sure our Drone is no where close.
      Tbe terrorist asked the Iranian leader ( maun terrorist) to tone down so as to bit place a target in their head.
      Reading silly naive dribble Buffoons as yourself blather about is just pathetic.

        He doesn’t hide in his bunker.

          No one can replace Soleimani. That’s why the Ayatollah was crying. The accountant that carries the money to the militias doesn’t have the charisma to create the fantasy of Shi’ite victory – especially through militias in various countries that don’t like taking orders from Iran… and can hardly fight without Soleimani there to lead them.

          The fact that the Ayatollah has to turn to Nasrallah for help means there is no home-grown talent in Iran … who can replace Soleimani.

      • Jan 23, 2020 @ 19:25 at 19:25

        It’s just matter of time before U.S. or Israeli ops send this Nasrallah to go meet his 72 virgins.

      after murdering of general soleimain, the iran will not go to make the peace with his murders

      scale down the rhetoric , means you have to calm down the public opinion of iraqi and donot scare them to fire the current street protests
      you need time to reorganize the militia

        Agree with Abbas, Iran Shiia Regime won’t remain in Power to have Peace with Anyone, Persians will overthrow and kill many of them for their prior and current Murders! The Death of Nasrallah by the Lebanese will happen soon too.

        Exactly, this a Desperate Act of Khameneni & Nasrallah. Soon Hussein Kawtharani will join Soleimani & Al-Muhandis as Shiia continue to be in disarray by the Lebanese, Iranian, Iraqi, Syrian People. Violence is now Upon Them & their Families & they know it! They gain their Wealth by Violence, Blood, Drugs, & Murder and it is Blow Back Time like any Crime Boss! revenge won’t cut it this time & runs out of options when it is on them.

    • Jan 23, 2020 @ 1:40 at 1:40

      The request came from Kawlharani. It was only conveyed through Nasrallah.
      Calling any terrorist “his own man” and “beneficial” makes no believable point; it only reveals the depth of your deception.
      I pity you.

    in conclusion – The sanctions work just great, there is drought in all shiite pockets everywhere

    As an extra squeeze, they have to pay for the Boeing, drug money from Colombia and Honduras have dried up, and now a lot more of hiding tunnels are needed. As a cherry on the tart, the people rise up in force to protest corruption and call for social and economic reforms. Shiite regimes are in deep shiit.

    • Jan 22, 2020 @ 21:35 at 21:35

      since 1979 many iranian officials are killed in the terrorist actions , that is nothing new
      they are replaced , the murder will be caught .
      and Iran will continue with his work

      Iran has killed 80-100 US soldiers in Ein Al asad, not one of its missiles is intercepted
      what is here the victory

  • Jan 22, 2020 @ 21:26 at 21:26

    The rat is not leaving the building, sorry the bunker.The clock is ticking….

  • Jan 22, 2020 @ 21:52 at 21:52

    After 2004,americns had to move the shia from iraq-lebanon in Iran.And everyone was fine.Seriously.

  • Jan 22, 2020 @ 22:30 at 22:30

    Won’t work. I doubt Iraqis, Shiite or not, want Lebanese interfering in their lives, any more than they want the Iranians there.

    • Jan 22, 2020 @ 23:33 at 23:33

      Shiia Sadr may actually replace Khamenei 7 invade Iran again like Hussein did in the 1980s. This is how weak Iran has become.

    The fat rat Nasrallah will now be forced to leave his smelly, underground hole for a shortest while possible…

  • Jan 22, 2020 @ 23:26 at 23:26

    Adios Hussein Kawtharani. Get your affairs in order and start looking out for drones.

    Sanctions must be tight as Sadr isn’t getting enough $$ from Tehran to act and therefore flipped to higher bidder.. Gotta love the Middle East,

  • Jan 22, 2020 @ 23:31 at 23:31

    Nasrallah may actually remove Khamenei to do the IRGC a favor!

  • Jan 23, 2020 @ 4:49 at 4:49

    There has to be a power stuggle going between Nasrallah and Sadr. Western Intell may truly not understand it, but one of these two likely has to see themselves as being in contention as being revealed as the ‘Hidden Imam’.

    Given the cultists designs of the Twelvers, a false flag death of either of one of them, only later to reappear alive and well on the eve of victory… would totally cement the claims to being the ‘Hidden One’. All it would take is background narrative engineering.

    The question then becomes a measure of which of the two has the backing Qom. My bet is it is Sadr.

    Why, is simply the events that would feed into such a ‘Twelver strategy’ would require a Tribulation of Upheaval along the lines of Biblical Revelation and Sadr simply commands a larger population of Shia Muslims in revalance.

  • Jan 23, 2020 @ 7:39 at 7:39

    Nasrallah is next on the hit list.

  • Jan 23, 2020 @ 9:04 at 9:04

    This a Desperate Act of Khameneni & Nasrallah. Soon Hussein Kawtharani will join Soleimani & Al-Muhandis by the Lebanese, Iranian, Iraqi, Syrian People. Violence is now Upon Them & their Families & they know it!

  • Jan 23, 2020 @ 9:08 at 9:08

    Moqtada Sadr will become the Shiia Supreme Leader of Iran. when The Turks Arrive in Great Numbers IRGC will Collapse as well. Shiia is now fighting Shiia for Empires of Dirt!!!

  • Jan 23, 2020 @ 13:42 at 13:42

    The major players all want to be the progenitor of a dynastic caliphate. Their loyalties and alliances exist only as long as they perceive them to serve their establishment of THEIR caliphate.

    Iran’s usefulness may be viewed as diminished and their proxies may not remain so obedient or “loyal”.

  • Jan 23, 2020 @ 14:22 at 14:22

    Now if Israel was smart it would track Nasrallah and make a special delivery of a missile that would send Nasrallah straight to Allah! He has personally sponsored the killings of innocent Israelis. That alone should warrant a special Nasrallah missile!
