Pegasus, the winged divine horse from Greek mythology, symbolises a range of things. The mythological salad can include many symbolic narratives — ranging from soul’s immortality to poetic inspiration — even the Marxist eschatological myth of the withering away of the state. The Pegasus Project is a raging controversy currently […]
The so-called Pegasus Project, which hit media headlines, has highlighted India in a clutch of countries where snooping of the telephones of citizens is widely practised as state policy. The Washington Post, which spearheaded the Pegasus Project, proposes to monitor the responses from these 10 select countries. Presumably, these are early […]
In an article written a year ago I argued that read in Hebrew Covid’s name becomes Dybbuk, and its true meaning is demonic possession by an evil spirit. It is basically the same algorithm that I identified in “Dolly”, the first cloned animal, which in Hebrew becomes Ylud – translating […]
After 11 days of Israeli aggression against Palestine, finally, the ceasefire has been reached. 11 days of bombing of Gaza cost 250 precious human lives, including around 70 innocent children. Thousands of houses were destroyed, even hospitals and schools were targeted deliberately. Infrastructure was damaged, causing a shortage of electricity […]
The irrational, illogical support of Israel has harmed the U.S. much more. Vetoing the UNSC resolution for ceasfire between Israel and Palestine three times has exposed America’s bias and apartheid ideology. 14 members of the UNSC are on one side and the US is only country delaying it. The U.S. […]
Egypt has once again been thrust onto the forefront of brokering a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi remarked on Monday that a ceasefire might still be within reach. As he put it, “Egypt is going to great lengths to reach a ceasefire between the Israelis and […]
The whole world is, without moving, witnessing new clashes between Israel and the Palestinians. It remains unmoved confronted with the blood that flows on both sides. The course of events attests that foreign powers, the United States, Iran and Turkey, are throwing oil on the fire. However, this conflict differs from the wars that have followed one another for 73 years in that we are witnessing the possible beginning of a civil war in Israel. The question arises whether this is a spontaneous fire or whether it is deliberately provoked.
The Israeli-provoked violence is deplorable enough as it is since it was started by the Jewish State’s aggressive colonial ambitions against the occupied Palestinian people in complete contradiction of international law but was made even worse by the fact that it’s occurring right before the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr […]
Criticism of Israel’s policies towards Palestinians has always induced a defensive rage from its defenders and advocates. A Threshold Crossed, a report by Human Rights Watch, lit several fires of rage and disapproval. Israel, according to the authors, is responsible for apartheid policies. The word, and the application of its […]
The Middle Eastern states, divided not by themselves but by the powers that colonised the region, are reorganising themselves according to their own logic. Of course these new alliances are still fragile, but the West will have to deal with them.
Over the weekend, Iran marked National Nuclear Technology Day. The stars of the show were going to be new advanced centrifuges at the Natanz uranium enrichment plant. Unfortunately, the stars did not shine and President Hassan Rouhani and his officials were left with a reminder of the previous time the […]
The aborted coup in Jordan has nothing to do with an internal rivalry within the royal family, even if it did find a leader. It is about opposition to Donald Trump’s questioning of the normalisation of Arab-Israeli relations and Joe Biden’s reactivation of a three-quarter century old conflict. Washington wants to resume the “endless war” in the greater Middle East.
