Imperialist Plans of Expansionism

Iran, China and Russia are all neo-imperialist powers and they intend to geographically expand in accordance with their respective geostrategic master plans. America in contrast which is no empire and has no imperialist designs has no master plan across presidencies for its foreign policy since every new president in the 21st century has devised hisContinue reading “Imperialist Plans of Expansionism”

The Palestinian Narrative is not Legitimate

It has often been claimed that peace requires accepting that there are two competing narratives, one Israeli and one Palestinian, but is this really true? What has not been considered is that the Palestinian narrative is Anti-Zionist, meaning opposed to peace with Israel. Therefore legitimizing the Palestinian narrative as an obstacle to peace makes peaceContinue reading “The Palestinian Narrative is not Legitimate”

What Would Happen if Israel did as the PA Wants?

Imagine if Israel agreed to withdraw plus-minus to the pre-1967 Auschwitz lines and agreed to deport hundreds of thousands of indigenous residents of Judea and Samaria? Assuming that the PA would agree to signing such an agreement which is not at all certain, this would not resolve the question of descendants of ex-refugees who wouldContinue reading “What Would Happen if Israel did as the PA Wants?”

Does King Abdullah II Want to Annex Gaza?

Israel is ready to redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria once a critical mass of Median Jewish immigrants have arrived in Israel and Jordan will subsequently annex Gaza. Meanwhile, the Jordanian government officially insists that “a two-state solution” in the version that would involve Israel retreating to the indefensible Auschwitz lines, is theContinue reading “Does King Abdullah II Want to Annex Gaza?”

A Two-State Solution is not in Israel’s Interest

It is often claimed that a two-state solution involving an Israeli return to the Auschwitz lines is “inevitable” and “the only solution”. However, this is completely unfeasible for three reasons. 1) There is a consensus in Palestinian society on not agreeing to an end-of-claims final status agreement as that would involve ceding the demand forContinue reading “A Two-State Solution is not in Israel’s Interest”

The Relationship between Iran and Muslim Brotherhood Intelligence

What is the relationship between Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood? The two espouse very similar forms of Islamism although one is Shia and one is Sunni. Both synethesize traditional political Islam with modernity, with influences particularly from Nazism and Communism. With the exception of Syria where interests diverge due to Iran taking the side ofContinue reading “The Relationship between Iran and Muslim Brotherhood Intelligence”

Why Insist on the Impossible?

The Biden administration is well aware that Mahmoud Abbas is no partner for the much touted two-state solution. Mahmoud Abbas is tactically pragmatic but strategically rigid and his successor will be no less strategically rigid but possibly less pragmatic. The Palestinian Authority insists on flooding Israel with millions of Anti-Zionists and the goal is toContinue reading “Why Insist on the Impossible?”

Indigenous Construction does not Thwart Two-State Solution

Recently did an anonymous Palestinian official claim that the Palestinian Authority and the US government see eye to eye on the question of restorative indigenous communities and ostensibly agree that the indigenous restoration project in Judea and Samaria is designed to thwart a two-state solution. Nothing could be further from the truth. The indigenous restorationContinue reading “Indigenous Construction does not Thwart Two-State Solution”

A Confederal Iran Protects the US National Interest

The United States made the mistake of not early partitioning Afghanistan according to language (between Turkmenistan – Turkmen language, Uzbekistan – Uzbek language, Tajikistan – Persian language and Pakistan – Pashto language) and similarly made the mistake of not early partitioning Iraq, granting independence to the three main ethnic regions (the Shias, the Sunnis andContinue reading “A Confederal Iran Protects the US National Interest”

The American Trauma

The past twenty years of American wars in the Middle East have created a certain amount of trauma in the American people. The stereotypical lesson from those wars is that those were mistakes but is it that simple? As the JCPOA inches towards inevitable collapse will America eventually face armed conflict with the Islamic RepublicContinue reading “The American Trauma”

Restorative Indigenous Construction is Rational

There has long been an assumption in the international community that the restorative indigenous construction project in Judea and Samaria is the result of excessive nationalism of politically conservative Revisionist Zionism and rightwing Modern Orthodox Religious Zionism. It has not been understood that the restorative indigenous communities were not founded at random but are aContinue reading “Restorative Indigenous Construction is Rational”

BDS is not What it Claims to Be

Proponents of BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) want to pressure the Jewish state out of existence. But what is the real purpose of the BDS movement as a product of international political action by Palestinian Authority intelligence? The PA knows perfectly well that it is not possible to pressure Israel into committing national suicide, inContinue reading “BDS is not What it Claims to Be”

Israel has an Exit Strategy for Syria and Lebanon

America was fully justified in liberating totalitarian Iraq in 2003. Saddam Hussein was a profoundly dangerous dictator who had used chemical weapons against civilians and committed genocide against his own citizens. The Anti-American Saddam Hussein posed a severe threat against America due to the possibility that he would use his chemical weapons again. America endedContinue reading “Israel has an Exit Strategy for Syria and Lebanon”

Expecting a Jewish Nakba

The Kushner peace map was not drawn up by Israelis and the Israeli government when officially accepting the Kushner peace plan of course knew that it would be rejected by the Palestinian Authority. The Kushner peace map has its flaws and does not represent the Israeli partition map. What is the Israeli partition map? TheContinue reading “Expecting a Jewish Nakba”

Why a Palestinian State Would not Lead to Peace

A Palestinian state cannot be established through an end-of-claims final status agreement between Israel and the PLO for the simple reason that there is a consensus in Palestinian society never to resolve the issue of descendants of ex-refugees other than by inundating Israel with millions of Anti-Zionists that would make sure that Israel is replacedContinue reading “Why a Palestinian State Would not Lead to Peace”

Iran does not Fear Israel’s Nuclear Deterrence

There is more than one danger with the scenario of Iran developing nuclear weapons. One of course is geostrategic, Iran seeks hegemony and nuclear weapons is one of several tools in its quest for regional hegemony and global superpower status. This is dangerous enough to the region and to the world, a strategic threat noContinue reading “Iran does not Fear Israel’s Nuclear Deterrence”

The Question of Blasphemy in Islam

Large sections of the Muslim world still lives in the Middle Ages and an entire neo-medievalist movement, Islamism, has arisen since the 19th century which seeks to bring back the Middle Ages once more. Islamist neo-medievalism has a significant influence on Islam and on Muslims generally, including on the question of blasphemy and even liberalContinue reading “The Question of Blasphemy in Islam”
