While we’re all waiting for #Trump to start World #War Three, we’ve not spotted that the #military map of the #MiddleEast has substantially, bloodily changed. It will be years before #Syria and #Iraq (and #Yemen) are rebuilt – and the Israelis may have to go to #Putin to clear up the mess they’re now in.

The Syrian war is ending – Assad has won

A message came through from Syria on my mobile phone last week. “General Khadour kept his promise,” it read. I knew what it meant. Five years ago, I met Mohamed Khadour, who was commanding a few Syrian soldiers in a small suburb of Aleppo, under fire from Islamist fighters in the east of the city. At the time, he showed me his map. He’d recapture these streets in 11 days, he said.

“Throughout my childhood, I have been harassed and bullied, and I always wondered ‘why do we have to accept this violence, just because we are women?’,” she said in an interview with The Jordan Times on Monday.

To those accusing her of encouraging violence, Khalifeh responded: “You are lying if you say there is no violence in #society; there is and always will be. So, when you encounter violence, you should be able to defend yourself.”

Breaking News: Riots in Sweden's capital!

#WashingtonPost trying to cover its ass: "Just two days after President Trump provoked widespread consternation by seeming to imply, incorrectly, that immigrants had perpetrated a recent spate of violence in Sweden, riots broke out in a predominantly immigrant neighborhood in the northern suburbs of Sweden's capital, Stockholm."

The neighborhood, #Rinkeby, was the scene of #riots in 2010 and 2013, too. And in most ways, what happened late M... mehr anzeigen
 

The Julian Assange Show Episode 3: Marzouki

During the course of the Arab Spring, the Middle East was shaken by a series of revolutionary movements that began in Tunisia. In this episode, Assange speaks to Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki on a variety of topics.

The debate is wide ranging, including their shared personal experiences of prison, the human rights record of the US, democratic Islamism, torture and secret files. But, despite their obvious mutual respect, Assange is able to challenge Marzouki, both over the censorship of the internet in Tunisia and on his position over the revolutions in Bahrain and Syria. According to the President, "we have to forget about the positions of Nasrallah and people like him. There is no good dictatorship. Dictatorship is dictatorship: corrupted, brutal and against the people."

Fred Maroun Fred Maroun Fred Maroun is a Canadian of #Arab origin who lived in Lebanon until 1984

A worthless and costly “peace” conference ended in Paris, and issued a joint declaration. Even the main organizer, the highly unpopular French President François Hollande, admitted at the conference that it was useless when he said, “the world cannot impose a solution to the #Israeli-Palestinian conflict”.

I am an Arab, lucky enough to be one of the few Arabs who live far enough, both physically and intellectually, from Arab thugs to be able to speak my mind. So I will speak my mind.

The Keeper of the Tigris: Protecting Iraq’s Ancient River

Nabil Musa is the first "waterkeeper" in Iraq and the Middle East. His mission is to protect the waterways of northern Iraq, and specifically, the upper Tigris River, so that its water remains swimmable, fishable and drinkable. Musa paddles the waterways in his kayak to raise awareness about environmental threats to the river. In a country largely known to outsiders for war and conflict, the beauty of this ancient river might surprise you.

The Incitement Must End

by Stephen Hoffman

On Sunday October 9 2016, after a busy day with family I sat down to catch up with the events of the day across the world. I’ve always been interested in the world around me and given my job I feel it’s my duty to be as informed as possible about events in #Israel and the wider #MiddleEast.

My heart sunk when I read that there had been a terrorist shooting in #Jerusalem, reminding me of how I felt when I was last in Israel and heard about the Sarona Market attacks. Since October 2015 a wave of #terror has hit Israel, with this inf... mehr anzeigen

Dozens of U.S. Diplomats, in Memo, Urge Strikes Against Syria’s Assad

More than 50 State Department diplomats have signed an internal memo sharply critical of the Obama administration’s policy in Syria, urging the United States to carry out military strikes against the government of President Bashar al-Assad to stop its persistent violations of a cease-fire in the country’s five-year-old civil war.

Bild/Foto

The memo, a draft of which was provided to The New York Times by a State Department official, says American policy has been “overwhelmed” by the unrelenting violence in Syria. It calls for “a judicious use of stand-off and air weapons, which would undergird and drive a more focused and hard-nosed U.S.-led diplomatic process.”

Iraqi protesters remain camped out in Baghdad's high security Green Zone, a day after they stormed parliament to demand political reform.
 

The U.S. Is Pumping All This Oil, So Where Are The Benefits?

The U.S. has ramped up oil production so dramatically that it's joined Saudi Arabia and Russia as one of the world's largest producers. Just glance at the chart below.

Since this surge began in 2008, American production rocketed from 5 million barrels a day to nearly 10 million barrels a day at the high point last year.

More importantly, oil analysts confidently predicted that a tide of benefits would flow as freely as the oil now coming out of the ground.

First, the U.S. economy would get a boost that would include a renaissance in manufacturing. Second, the U.S. would be far less dependent on the vagaries of foreign energy producers. And third, America could shrink its footprint in the volatile Middle East.

Yet none of this has happened. Why not?

The "Cold Reality" Of The Post-Paris World: The "Freedom-Promotion Agenda" Has Failed

Einsteinian insanity is a defining characteristic of #US foreign policy - and that goes double when we’re talking about the #MiddleEast.

You see, #America loves #democracy so damn much, that the US is fully prepared to impose it upon recalcitrant countries by force. Sure, that may seem oxymoronic, but it’s really just well meaning paternalism. After all, what better way to endear the local population to an occupying force and sow the seeds for the establishment of democratic institutions than to come in shooting after you’ve leveled a couple of cities with cruise missiles and airstrikes?
