BARK13

On July 12, Israel and Vietnam celebrated the 29th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations and emphasized in official statements that there is great potential for the further development of economic and diplomatic cooperation that could bring significant benefits to both sides. Vietnam, as you know, is a member…

Russia and Israeli Exceptionalism

ISR3421

After years of indiscriminate bombing of Syrian infrastructure by Israel, it was reported, in mid-May 2022 that Russia fired a “warning shot” S-300 missile “near” Israeli planes. These planes were attacking a military facility near Latakia and, as is generally the case, collateral damage, meaning dead civilians, are the norm. In fact, I just received an intelligence report out of Amman, Jordan stating…

US Officially Makes Israel the New Middle Eastern Hegemon

ISR4652231

Two years ago, when the Abraham Accords were signed and Donald Trump hailed them as a truly historic moment, there were very few who believed anything substantial could come out of them. Even a US intelligence report of the Department of Homeland Security warned that these pacts could lead to an increase in terrorism. But this has been far…

Israel and the US are Creating a “Middle East Alliance”

GAN642

According to Israeli Minister of Defense Benny Gantz, Israel and the US have recently been working hard to establish a formal “Middle East air defense alliance.” The minister said that the matter would be discussed in depth during US President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel, scheduled for July 13-14. At a meeting of the Israeli Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Gantz…

US Tries to Open a “Second Front” in Syria

ISR23423

It is well known that US politics, and American politicians themselves, have long thrived not on “diplomatic successes”, but on considerable cash profits from the unleashing of numerous armed conflicts in one part of the world or another. And this is particularly evidenced by the recent allocation by the US Congress of $40 billion to prolong the war in Ukraine and the new supply of US arms…

 

US and Israel are to Blame for a Real Risk of a Catastrophic War in the Middle East

ISR92433

Amid growing uncertainty about Iran’s return to the 2015 nuclear deal, and in light of protracted negotiations with the United States, the Israeli Army, with Washington’s direct support, has stepped up efforts to create a real military threat to Iran and unleash a large-scale war in the Middle East. To this end, the Israeli military has begun…

Why is Israel Helping the US against Russia Now?

NAF563422

Even though Israel had previously refused to oppose or condemn Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine– which was provoked by the West’s irresponsible expansionism associated with NATO’s enlargement plans – the situation has changed in the last few days. Israel has clearly altered its previous status, as Jerusalem not only criticised Moscow’s military operation…

Tensions Flare in the Palestinian-Israeli Relations

ISR

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has reaffirmed its commitment and support for the rights of the Palestinian people to sovereignty over their occupied land. The OIC member states held an extraordinary meeting in Jeddah on April 25 and called for coordinated efforts to protect Quds (Jerusalem) and its holy sites from “crimes committed by the Israeli military.” The OIC member states stressed that the Holy Quds and the Al-Aqsa Mosque are a red line for the Islamic Ummah and without liberating it from the “occupation of the Zionist Israeli regime” security and stability in the region will not be achieved.  The Israeli military aggression against the Palestinian people and the illegal actions…

Israel Demonstrates its Disregard for Human Rights

ISR043243

Once again Israel demonstrates to the world its utter disregard for human rights. And this is not only in the ongoing airstrikes on Syrian territory and the suburbs of Damascus from Lebanese territory or the Golan Heights, as a result of which Syrian civilians suffer. For example, this April alone, Israel’s F-16 fighter jets carried out another missile strike. On April 9…

The Making of an ‘Arab-Israel NATO’ in the Middle East

BEN243433

The recent meeting of Arab and Israeli leaders in Israel in the southern Negev Desert is a remarkable event, not just because it signifies how Arab states and Israel are increasingly normalising their ties but also because this summit could be the first serious step towards establishing a joint security mechanism against common threats i.e., Iran. Most importantly…

Israel, Ukraine, and Black Market Transplant Surgeons

TNR9433

The topics of local military conflicts and illegal human organ trade always go hand in hand, since military actions are not just about solving geopolitical issues and commonplace profiting off the arms trafficking but also about illegal human organ trade. Organ buyer-ups and black market transplant surgeons have long become ordinary elements of the military…

Israel Tries to Forge an anti-Iranian Coalition Yet Again

BEN

Despite Israel’s lack of success so far in its attempts to “fundamentally resolve” the issue of Iran’s nuclear program, it is actively trying to exploit its recent favorable relations with individual Arab states to bring such countries together in an anti-Iranian coalition it leads. To this end, amid improving Israeli-Egyptian relations, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett visited Egypt for a new…
