The Case for a Tripartite Democratic World Order

The rise of the three neo-imperialist powers of China, Iran and Russia and the inevitability that China will eventually grow more powerful than America due to China’s greater demographic size once Beijing begins to economically catch up with Washington requires a new world order. Rather than one democratic superpower should we envision a world orderContinue reading “The Case for a Tripartite Democratic World Order”

The US Needs to Provide Incentives to Saudi Arabia

In 2021 Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman al-Saud made a generous offer to US National Security Advisory Jake Sullivan. MBS offered to normalize relations with Israel in return for a list of demands for so-called “incentives” (i.e. security guarantees and weapons sales).

Why Russia does not Want to Change Course

Two decades ago, Vladimir Putin asked the West to allow Russia to become a member of NATO. This informal request was promptly rebuffed. What view does Russia take of the option of a US-led Asian defense alliance encircling China? For Russia this is primarily a question of lack of trust or to put it differently,Continue reading “Why Russia does not Want to Change Course”

Is America Planning to Disengage from Islamdom?

Middle Eastern governments are convinced that the Biden administration is intent on continuing the Trump administration policy of disengagement from Islamdom, yet the US government denies this. Who should we believe? Assuming that the governments of the region are correct in their unanimous assessment of US intentions, a plausible explanation would then be that theContinue reading “Is America Planning to Disengage from Islamdom?”

Jews are a Nation of Color

Racialization of Jews have a long pedigree in the history of Anti-Semitism. Racialization of Jews was practiced in Spain against the Anusim (“Marranos”), Jews who were involuntarily converted to Christianity during the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492.

Imperialism is the Greatest Threat

Totalitarian enemies of America whether Communist or Islamist typically describe democratic America as “imperialist”. Of course there is no American empire. America does not dominate other independent nations, like almost every other nation it aligns with foreign nations to promote its own interests. What is unique however about America is that it constantly across presidentialContinue reading “Imperialism is the Greatest Threat”

The Zoroastrians are Jewish

Zoroastrianism is a form of Median Judaism. It is not part of core Median Judaism but as other forms of “secondary” Median Judaism is Zoroastrianism derived from core Median Judaism. Zoroastrianism has Kohanim but no Levites. Like other forms of Median Judaism beyond core Median Judaism is it highly syncretic.

Why Many Ashkenazi Jews “Look” European

Anti-Zionists claim contrary to all scientific genetic evidence that Ashkenazi Jewry are exclusively descended from “European” converts to Judaism and they say so entirely out of how Ashkenazi Jews “look”, i.e. through racial observation alone. The Nazi Germans disagreed, they thought that Ashkenazi Jews “looked” Middle Eastern. Irrespective needs the issue to be clarified. SomalisContinue reading “Why Many Ashkenazi Jews “Look” European”

The Ancient Bisection of Judaism

In 930 BCE was the United Monarchy of Israel divided into two separate kingdoms; the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the Southern Kingdom of Judah.

Are Zoroastrians Jewish?

Zoroastrianism emerged from Median Judaism and is documented from the 5th century BCE as Zoroastrianism turned into religious imperialism. Zoroastrians have a Kohanite priestly caste but for some reason no Levite priestly tribe. This raises the question as to whether the Zoroastrians are Jewish? Is it a form of Median Judaism? Do they have secretContinue reading “Are Zoroastrians Jewish?”

Rewriting the Nation State Law

Israel will need to modify its controversial “Basic Law: Israel as the Nation State of the Jewish People” since Israel’s legislators apparently did not anticipate the existence of Median Jewry and even less so mass Aliyah of tens of millions of Median Jews. The name of the quasi-constitutional basic law will need to be changedContinue reading “Rewriting the Nation State Law”
