A trip to the Promised Land

Having visited two of Israel’s neighbors, Jordan and […]

Netanyahu, War Crimes and the Future of Palestinean State

Prime Minister Netanyahu’s ridiculous claim that a Palestinian persuaded Adolf Hitler to exterminate the Jews of Europe was referred to as a Holocaust Blunder and roundly criticized in the New York Times editorial of 22 October and around the world. Mr Netanyahu has since retracted his statement. The retraction, however is couched in language so […]

Strategic scenarios surrounding prolonged Kurdish insurgency in Turkey (I)

Erdogan’s War on the Kurds has opened up yet another Pandora’s Box in the Mideast, with it looking ever more likely that the current conflict isn’t just a flash in the pan, but rather the first stages of a protracted campaign by both sides. The first part of the article argues that this is indeed […]

The Half Non-Nuclear Bowl Beneath the Iran Nuclear Deal

Referencing the US, a friend told me “Since the neo-cons (triumphalists) assumed power, they have brought down a great country the world knew down to an empire that only serves the interest of Jerusalem. What then is the fate of America?” I answered him that he should read Cullen Murphy’s book Are We Rome? The […]

Modi’s game and the true meaning of multipolarity

The personal chemistry on display between Obama and Modi and the strength of their symbolic statements about the other have left many scratching their heads about the political game that the Indian Prime Minister is playing. It’s all rather simple, really, since India has historically been an archetypical multipolar state that works with all players […]

The Russian-Chinese Strategic Partnership Strikes Israel

Please read “Israel And The Multipolar Bag Of TRICs” beforehand for context With Turkey and India’s interactions with Israel out of the way, it’s now appropriate to focus solely on the intersection of Russian-Israeli-Chinese relations, no matter how unwilling of a participant Israel may be to this trilateral arrangement. As explained above, Israel is under […]

Israel And The Multipolar Bag Of TRICs

Israel is stereotypically thought of as a country that interacts mainly with the Western unipolar world (reinforced in part due to the country’s own unipolar attitude in the Mideast), but such an image isn’t entirely accurate. Although one may not realize it because of the mainstream media blackout on the topic, the multipolar-oriented states of […]

The demonization of Islam

Much is being written regarding the Charlie Hebdo issue in Paris, France. I do not condone any killing but at the same time I do not support issues that violate human rights, religious freedom or freedom of speech and thoughts. Using cartoons to condemn Divine thoughts and beliefs is utterly wrong because they fall under […]

Stop Postulating the Clash of Civilizations

The British are mystified by their Muslim citizens becoming “jihadists” and joining the so-called Islamic State. They are horrified by the beheading of an American journalist by “John” a British citizen and member of the IS. I must admit that I, too am horrified. It is not Islamic at all. Islam does not advocate violence […]
