Turkey’s Dramatic Foreign Policy Shift of Paradigm

Turkey has shifted foreign policy from a maximum trouble policy towards all non-Islamist entities in the region to the polar opposite. President Erdogan clearly made a severe mistake when he in 2021 effectively threatened civil war after the 2023 elections. This has led the Sabbatean-controlled Derin Devlet deep state domestic intelligence apparatus to rein inContinue reading “Turkey’s Dramatic Foreign Policy Shift of Paradigm”

What is Wrong with the Iran Experts?

For over a year Iran experts and intelligence analysts around the world predicted that Iran would return to the JCPOA.

This reveals a complete misreading of theContinue reading “What is Wrong with the Iran Experts?”

It’s Anti-Semitism Stupid!

What is the problem with Iran? Is it Islam? No, there are dozens of sovereign Muslim nations that are responsible members of the international community. Is it totalitarianism?

TheContinue reading “It’s Anti-Semitism Stupid!”

Khomeinism and Iranian Foreign Policy

Ayatollah Khomeini introduced a governing principle according to which Iranian national interests take precedence over sharia.

There is no Alternative to Total Victory

Although there are ongoing so-called “negotiations” between Ukraine and Russia while Russia is pulverizing Ukrainian cities, it is clear that there is no alternative to the total liberation of Ukraine.

The ephemeral talk ofContinue reading “There is no Alternative to Total Victory”

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.

How Important is Russian Imperialism?

Russia remains stuck in the Ukrainian quagmire and now the Ukrainians are going on the offensive to retake Russian-occupied territories.

China’s Planned Conquests

China is not only expansionist in an economic sense.

First Things First

Will the Russians Sober Up?

The emerging reality in Ukraine is becoming increasingly clear. Russia is winning tactically in some locations in Ukraine but is overall suffering strategic defeat.

It’s not About Ukraine – It’s About Europe

Russian propaganda has been successful in spreading the misconception that the current conflict is about Ukraine. Baltic governments have been consistently warning that the invasion of Ukraine is merely the opening salvo of WWIII. This is a classical war of imperial conquest. Russian propaganda claims that Europe is interested in conquering Russian wealth but thisContinue reading “It’s not About Ukraine – It’s About Europe”

Inside the Mind of Vladimir Putin

There has been a wide range of attempts to pathologize Russian president Vladimir Putin to explain the Ukraine war. It is surprising that otherwise rational and highly educated observers assume that the Russian system suddenly operates without an elaborate strategy. Putin’s Russia has always been similar in its geostrategic behavior to the former Soviet Union,Continue reading “Inside the Mind of Vladimir Putin”

Normalization in Limbo

In the waning days of the Trump presidency was the world presented with a long list of Muslim countries waiting to normalize relations with Israel.

A Grand Bargain for Peace

Contrary to what Moscow claims, Russia’s military buildup against Ukraine has nothing to do with a perceived threat from NATO and in contrast has everything to do with China. This obviously requires some explanation. Russia is infamous for its propaganda and disinformation and has long disingenuously claimed that NATO (a purely defensive organization) has offensiveContinue reading “A Grand Bargain for Peace”

China or Russia cannot Substitute America’s Role in Islamdom

Why did the Biden administration discontinue the Trump administration policy of intending to devolve most of America’s superpower duties in Islamdom to Israel? There is only one answer: Suspicion that Israel will realign with China. The US nightmare scenario is that Washington would hand over most of its superpower duties in Islamdom to Jerusalem andContinue reading “China or Russia cannot Substitute America’s Role in Islamdom”

Muslim Nations are Hedging Their Bets

The Trump administration was exceptionally successful in generating normalization between Israel and Muslim nations due to the Trump policy of intending to devolve much of America’s superpower duties in Islamdom to Israel. This idea is immensely popular among governments of Islamdom for two reasons. 1) The Mossad is extremely trusted as a partner in theContinue reading “Muslim Nations are Hedging Their Bets”

Biden’s Ukraine Policy Harms US Interests

Why is it that the US government has a Ukraine policy that it does not believe will be effective?

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.

The Victims of Civilization

Indigenous nations are victims of civilizations, not just one civilization but civilizations generally. This is obfuscated by Postcolonialism which epistemologically privileges Islamist imperialists and Arab colonialists over their victims, including the Jews and other indigenous nations of the MENA region. Colonialism and imperialism are not exclusively Western phenomenons but are inherent to civilization generally. PostcolonialismContinue reading “The Victims of Civilization”

Germany has not Learned the Lesson of Czechoslovakia

Ukraine is threatened by Russia seeking to territorially expand westwards. The planned Russian annexation of Ukraine is only a prelude to the planned Russian conquest of the rest of Europe.

How to Make the US-Israel Relationship Last Forever

How can the US-Israel relationship be so reinforced that it becomes unbreakable as both America and Israel fear being abandoned by the other in the long-term?

The US Must Clarify on Disengagement from Islamdom

The US suffers from a global credibility deficit.

A New Academic Paradigm is Needed for Scholarship on Islamdom

The complex civilization of Islamdom is systematically misunderstood both internally and externally. Academic attempts at understanding the civilization of Islamdom has typically added to the confusion.

The critique of Orientalism is well-known but the core of the critique is thatContinue reading “A New Academic Paradigm is Needed for Scholarship on Islamdom”

China Needs to be Encircled by US Allies

The threat of Chinese territorial expansion in the Central Asian and Asia-Pacific regions should prompt the US government to take the initiative to found two new US-led defense alliances in Asia as the US should strive to encircle China in order to contain it and deter it from territorial expansion. The US needs to alignContinue reading “China Needs to be Encircled by US Allies”

The US Perception, Credibility and Deterrence Problem

Jews must Reappropriate Intersectionality

Zionism was once championed by the political left in the West when Israel had a democratic socialist economy dominated by collectives, cooperatives and union-owned industries. Israel has since 1977 left socialism in eventually becoming the most high tech economy in the world with the Israeli high tech sector accounting for 40% of Israeli exports. YetContinue reading “Jews must Reappropriate Intersectionality”

Apocalyptic Iran

Iran’s main designated adversaries are the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia.

The notion of Jews andContinue reading “Apocalyptic Iran”

How Iran Views the US-Israel Relationship

The basic prism through which the Iranian regime views international politics and domestic politics in many countries is that of the ostensible global “Jewish conspiracy” to destroy Islam.

WhenContinue reading “How Iran Views the US-Israel Relationship”

Why Israel’s Enemies Attack Israel despite Always Losing

Why do Israel’s enemies insist on military conflict with Israel despite always losing? Of course they want to destroy Israel but that alone does not explain the failed insistence on armed conflict with Israel.

Islamism is not Anti-Imperialist

A common theme among academic apologists for totalitarianism is that the Muslim Brotherhood specifically and Islamism generally is an anti-imperialist movement that is part of the post-colonial situation.
