The State Department Does not Get It

The State Department has recently made pronouncements on the violence in Samaria, calling on “both sides” to refrain from “provocations” and “return to the peace process”. This is peculiar since the Palestinian Authority is certainly not behind the violence and the parties which are, namely the designated Jihadist terrorist organizations of Hamas and Palestinian IslamicContinue reading “The State Department Does not Get It”

A Colossal Intelligence Failure

The Western intelligence community operates on the assumption that Iran is interested in returning to the JCPOA. Yet, no matter how many times this false belief has been discredited by persistent Iranian rejectionism, the Western intelligence community has clung to this patently false belief. If Iran was motivated primarily by economic imperatives then surely notContinue reading “A Colossal Intelligence Failure”

Iran has a Timeline

Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah has given a television interview in giving us some insight into how the Khomeinist elite currently conceive of messianic time. Khomeinism of course is unique in that it is the only form of Islamism that is apocalyptic. Nasrallah referred to some news reports from the US and Israeli media as indicationsContinue reading “Iran has a Timeline”

A Bipartisan Strategy for Great Power Competition for the Next 50 Years

There is not much disagreement between the Republican Party and the Democratic Party on Russia and China and there won’t be on Iran once the negotiation track is definitely declared dead. What is needed is a threepronged bipartisan global strategy for the next 50 years. Russia, China and Iran each require a unique strategy ofContinue reading “A Bipartisan Strategy for Great Power Competition for the Next 50 Years”

Can Iran’s Apocalyptic Scheme be Thwarted?

If Iran did not believe that Iranian territorial control over the Twelver eschatological region was essential for the success of the planned Khomeinist man-made apocalypse as intended to prompt the reappearance of the Hidden Imam in Mecca, then surely Iran would not be so geostrategically obsessed with taking control over this region where the threeContinue reading “Can Iran’s Apocalyptic Scheme be Thwarted?”

Once Iran Conquers the Gulf States

Iran is bent on taking control over the Twelver eschatological region which includes the cities of Mecca, Jerusalem and Damascus where the Islamic messianic figures of the Mahdi (identified by Twelvers with the Hidden Imam), the Dajjal (the Deceitful Messiah) and Jesus are slated to appear at the conclusion of Islamic history. Control over thisContinue reading “Once Iran Conquers the Gulf States”

The US Must Learn From Ukraine War How to Prevent War in the Middle East

Why are Finland and Sweden suddenly applying for membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization? They understand the simple truth that the Russian invasion of Ukraine would never have occurred had Ukraine already been a member of NATO. NATO is not primarily an organization for waging war but above all an organization for preventing warContinue reading “The US Must Learn From Ukraine War How to Prevent War in the Middle East”

A US-Saudi Defense Pact Would Checkmate Iran

Iranian geostrategy is focused like a laser beam on taking over the Twelver eschatological region with its immense oil resources, control over which would instantly transform Iran into a superpower able to extort America’s allies around the world. Islam has three messianic figures. These are 1) the Mahdi (identified by Twelvers with the Hidden Imam)Continue reading “A US-Saudi Defense Pact Would Checkmate Iran”

Massive US Force Buildup Necessary Prior to Destroying Nuclear Program

The ostensible negotiations process with Iran might seem like a waste of time considering Iran’s complete lack of interest in an agreement with the United States. However, that is certainly not the case as the time is well used by Iran’s intended victims to prepare for war against Iran. There are three levels of militaryContinue reading “Massive US Force Buildup Necessary Prior to Destroying Nuclear Program”

We Need to Defend the Oil Wells

The Middle East and the world will be in great danger following Israel and America’s inevitable destruction of Iran’s nuclear weapon’s program as Iran will not under any circumstances be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons capability. Twelver Sharia forbids offensive war and for the ruling mullahs in Iran is the American-Israeli destruction of the nuclearContinue reading “We Need to Defend the Oil Wells”

Inside Iran’s Expansionist Mindset

Twelver Shia theology prohibits offensive war but Khomeinists believe it allows terrorism which it peculiarly construes as defensive, so-called “resistance”. Khomeinist Iran has so far engaged in regional expansionism through proxies, i.e. Shiite militias. Iran also maintains a close relationship with the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood everywhere but in Syria, which is also expressed in Iran’sContinue reading “Inside Iran’s Expansionist Mindset”

Oman, Qatar and Kuwait Need to Join the Regional Security Architecture

Those who feed crocodiles are also subsequently eaten by those very same crocodiles. This is something for Oman, Qatar and Kuwait to ponder who all have made sure to maintain good relations with Iran. Yet can anyone doubt that the Iranian crocodile intends to swallow Oman, Qatar and Kuwait? Being friends with Tehran is likeContinue reading “Oman, Qatar and Kuwait Need to Join the Regional Security Architecture”

Pretexts for Terrorism

Anti-Zionism is not merely as its etymology indicates opposed to the Zionist movement, it seeks the destruction of the restored indigenous Jewish nation state and its usually unstated agenda is the annihilation of 7 million Israeli Jews. In addition to all that Anti-Zionists maintain all kinds of pretexts such as claiming that today’s Flag paradeContinue reading “Pretexts for Terrorism”

Westerners do not Understand Islamdom

Islamdom is chronically misunderstood by outsiders, particularly Westerners and even by Muslims themselves. However, Westerners have particular cultural baggage in its long and well-documented history of misunderstanding Islamdom. Today, this prejudice mostly amounts to assuming that people in Islamdom think identically to people in the West. The issue of the annual Jerusalem Flag parade isContinue reading “Westerners do not Understand Islamdom”

It is Essential not to Reward Terrorists

Hamas and their fellow travelers regard last year’s rerouting of the Jerusalem flag parade as an important symbolic victory and this is why they are making threats this year despite the Jerusalem flag parade in its usual route being a tradition going back to the years after the 1967 Six Day War. The terrorists haveContinue reading “It is Essential not to Reward Terrorists”

How Jerusalem Could be Key to NATO’s Enlargement

There are three centers of political power in the Republic of Turkey. These are a) the ruling AK party headed by president Erdogan, b) the Sabbatean-controlled Derin Devlet deep state domestic intelligence apparatus and c) the Turkish military, the TAF (Turkish Armed Forces) itself. While the Derin Devlet is primarily concerned with preserving the secularistContinue reading “How Jerusalem Could be Key to NATO’s Enlargement”

It’s the Consensus Stupid!

There is much international hope pinned to a future successor to Mahmoud Abbas making peace with Israel. However, to personalize this issue, to think that the problem of Palestinian rejectionism is limited to first Yasser Arafat and then Mahmoud Abbas is myopic at best. Palestinian society is thoroughly rejectionist. The Palestinian consensus states that aContinue reading “It’s the Consensus Stupid!”

The Approaching Khomeinist Apocalypse

“I am decisely announcing to the whole world that if the world-devourers [the infidel powers] wish to stand against our religion, we will stand against the whole world and will not cease until the annihilation of all of them. Either we all become free, or we will go to the greater freedom, which is martyrdom.Continue reading “The Approaching Khomeinist Apocalypse”

Inside the Khomeinist Mind

The Iranian regime openly states that its overarching geostrategic goal is to prompt the reappearance of the Hidden Imam. Yet academic experts and intelligence analysts do tend to not pay attention to the religious dimension of Iranian decision making. Khomeinism is unique in the sense as being the only form of Islamism that is apocalypticContinue reading “Inside the Khomeinist Mind”

Open Letter to Israel’s Arab Allies

Israel has received official diplomatic protests from Jordan and the UAE for cracking down on rioters on the Temple Mount who threw down rocks on Jews near the Western Wall.  It is the longstanding Arab position that the Temple Mount and East Jerusalem should be part of a future Palestinian state. Notwithstanding that this forContinue reading “Open Letter to Israel’s Arab Allies”

Israel Should Close Off Temple Mount for Ramadan

In recent days have Palestinian rioters on top of the Temple Mount in central Jerusalem repeatedly attacked Jews below at the Western Wall by throwing down rocks against them. Israeli riot police had to calm down the situation, arrest the rioters and remove the rocks piled up on the mount. Action included use of riotContinue reading “Israel Should Close Off Temple Mount for Ramadan”

What do the Palestinians Want?

Palestinians of course are diverse and not all Palestinians are the same but we should nevertheless ask ourselves what the Palestinians want based on analyzing Palestinian media, Palestinian education, Palestinian politics, Palestinian opinion polls and Palestinian historiography.  Do the Palestinians want a Palestinian state alongside Israel? The Palestinian movement has rejected many diplomatic offers forContinue reading “What do the Palestinians Want?”

The Approaching Apocalypse

Khomeinism is different from all other forms of Islamism in that it constitutes an apocalyptic death cult. No other sect of Islamism believes that the end of days is close in time. However, Khomeinism has no fixed date for the apocalypse which is somewhat flexible in time. The general understanding is that eschatological time wasContinue reading “The Approaching Apocalypse”

Regionwide War and Global Terror

Iran does not fear America which it considers bruised by war and defeated by international Jihadism. In the Khomeinist Weltanschauung is Israel merely one of the tentacles of the “worldwide” American-Jewish “octopus” and so Tehran believes that Jerusalem cannot independently decide on destroying Iran’s nuclear weapons program without a green light from Washington. Therefore willContinue reading “Regionwide War and Global Terror”

Median Jews Settling in Judea and Samaria will Hasten International Recognition

Members of the international community constantly repeat that the much touted “two-state solution” will at some point expire due to continued indigenous construction in Judea and Samaria. That is certainly not something to fear, in fact that should be welcomed. Of course the particular version of the two-state solution according to the so-called “international parameters”,Continue reading “Median Jews Settling in Judea and Samaria will Hasten International Recognition”

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?”

The Need for Planning and Enforcement

There is a rampant unauthorized Arab construction both in Israel and in Judea and Samaria. A major reason is lack of master plans in Arab localities both in Israel and in Judea and Samaria. Legislation has just passed in the Knesset authorizing hooking up illegally constructed homes in Israel to the electricity grid. The amountContinue reading “The Need for Planning and Enforcement”

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”

Apocalyptic Iran

Iran’s main designated adversaries are the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia. The notion of the United States as an implacable enemy of the Islamic Republic of Iran is based on Islamist Anti-Semitic conspiracy theory according to which the US is the center of the “Jewish conspiracy” to destroy Islam. The notion of Jews andContinue reading “Apocalyptic Iran”

Appeasing the Palestinian Movement does not Work

When the Israeli government initiated what became the Oslo process was it quite aware that no end-of-claims final status agreement was possible with the PLO. Yet, the opened-eyed, realistic Israeli government initiated the Oslo process with the goal of establishing a Palestinian autonomy, something that was accepted by both Likud and Labor and was anchoredContinue reading “Appeasing the Palestinian Movement does not Work”

There was Never a Time for a Palestinian State

EU representative in Ramallah Sven Kuhn von Burgsdorff claims that “time is running out on the two-state solution” as if a two-state solution was ever possible. He peddles false claims according to which the building of Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem prevents a Palestinian state as if Israel would ever agree to redivide Jerusalem. The KushnerContinue reading “There was Never a Time for a Palestinian State”

The Future of Metropolitan Jerusalem lies in the Judean Desert

Jerusalem is the largest city in Israel with 900 000 inhabitants. Due to the predominantly religious nature of the Jewish population of Jerusalem, Jewish Jerusalemites have a high natural growth rate. While it will be possible to accommodate some of the population growth by building skyscrapers in the place of current buildings, it is clearContinue reading “The Future of Metropolitan Jerusalem lies in the Judean Desert”

The Indigenous Restorative Communities of Judea and Samaria were not a Mistake

It is often claimed the strategically located indigenous restorative communities of Judea and Samaria contravene international law, yet Judea and Samaria is terra nullius and even those who recognize the non-existent “Palestinian state” cannot deny that the area was terra nullius at least prior to 1988, the period when most of those communities were established.Continue reading “The Indigenous Restorative Communities of Judea and Samaria were not a Mistake”

The Garden Suburbs in Judea and Samaria

The majority of the strategically located indigenous restorative communities of Judea and Samaria are designed to be garden suburbs of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Beersheba and Haifa. There is not much economy in those communities as most residents commute to the metropolitan areas inside Israel. Contrary to the libelous claims of being designed to be “obstaclesContinue reading “The Garden Suburbs in Judea and Samaria”

The US Should Rescind its Plans to Reopen the US Consulate in Jerusalem

The Israeli government has clearly made it known that it is opposed to the reopening of the US consulate in Jerusalem which according to US law is the capital of Israel and the capital of Israel alone. Yet, Secretary Blinken has announced plans to reopen the consulate contrary to the will of the host nation,Continue reading “The US Should Rescind its Plans to Reopen the US Consulate in Jerusalem”

Decades of Failed Pressure

Successive US administrations have for decades applied varying degrees of diplomatic pressure on Israeli governments to refrain from indigenous restorative strategic construction in Judea and Samaria. Yet the fact is that Israeli governments of all political colors have built in Judea and Samaria since the late 1970s because it is rightly seen as a vitalContinue reading “Decades of Failed Pressure”

The Palestinians Still Want to Perpetrate a Nakba Against the Jews

Ever since the inception of Zionism in the late 19th century have Palestinians wanted to ethnically cleanse the land of Israel from Jews. in 1947 did the Palestinian movement start a war against the Yishuv (the Jewish community in the land of Israel) with the explicit purpose of evicting the Jews from their homes andContinue reading “The Palestinians Still Want to Perpetrate a Nakba Against the Jews”

Indigenous Restoration in Judea and Samaria is a Vital National Security Interest

Israel has since the 1970s invested vast sums in the indigenous restoration project of Judea and Samaria. This is not as is sometimes claimed motivated by irrational nationalist or religious sentiments but rather by clearheaded long-term strategic thinking. The mountain ridge of Judea and Samaria overlooks central Israel and an overwhelming military assault by enemyContinue reading “Indigenous Restoration in Judea and Samaria is a Vital National Security Interest”

A Palestinian State is Impossible and Dangerous

The so-called “two-state solution” was always stillborn with no chance of taking off because the Palestinian side always demanded that millions of Anti-Zionists be allowed to immigrate to Israel in dooming the Jewish state and hence also the two-state solution. There are no peaceful intentions on the Palestinians side. The Palestinian Authority is currently pacifiedContinue reading “A Palestinian State is Impossible and Dangerous”

Enfranchising East Jerusalem Palestinians

Israeli annexation of 4 million Median Jews (Alawites and Druze) of Syria and Lebanon and the immigration of 3-4 million Median Jews (Yarsanis, Alevis, Yezidis and Zoroastrians) from Iran and Iraq will enable Israel to redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria. East Jerusalem has since 1967 been under Israeli sovereignty with Palestinians thereContinue reading “Enfranchising East Jerusalem Palestinians”

Retract International Recognition of Palestinian Statehood

A joint IDF-SDF campaign to liberate Syria and Lebanon following a massive Hezbollah missile assault on the city of Tel Aviv will enable Israel to annex the Median Jewish (Alawite and Druze) regions of Syria and Lebanon. This will add 4 million Median Jews to Israel’s demographics and with immigration of 1 million Yezidi andContinue reading “Retract International Recognition of Palestinian Statehood”

A False Dichotomy

Palestinian propaganda has in recent decades consistently claimed that Israel “has to choose” between a so-called “two-state solution” which entails endangering the Jewish state and a so-called “one-state solution” which entails endangering endangering the Jewish people. This is a patently false choice. The Palestinian side sees a so called “two-state solution” as a purely transitionalContinue reading “A False Dichotomy”

Judea and Samaria are Indigenous Jewish Lands

Many indigenous peoples hold their traditional lands to be sacred and many indigenous peoples have long since been exiled from their traditional lands by imperial powers. The Jews are no exception. The Jews are a Fourth World Nation who have remarkably transitioned into one of the most affluent countries in the world. The origin ofContinue reading “Judea and Samaria are Indigenous Jewish Lands”
