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”

Dialectics of Democratic Decline

Liberal democracy in Western Europe is threatened from two different directions. On the one hand by the Islamizers, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafis and on the other hand by the Anti-Muslim political parties that are prominent throughout Western Europe. There is a certain dialectics between the two however. The Anti-Muslim political parties generateContinue reading “Dialectics of Democratic Decline”

China’s Planned Conquests

China is not only expansionist in an economic sense. Densely populated China is bordered by thinly populated vast territories rich in natural resources to its west and north which are completely irresistible to Han China. China is a highly sophisticated state which has learned the lesson of historical empires and Beijing knows the dangers ofContinue reading “China’s Planned Conquests”

Is MBS the Ataturk of Arabia?

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman al-Saud (MBS) did not initiate the process of liberalization and secularization in Saudi Arabia but he has certainly spearheaded it. MBS has proceeded methodically in promoting a feminist agenda of enfranchising women in Saudi Arabia. He has been much maligned and has been accused of being a psychopath and abusingContinue reading “Is MBS the Ataturk of Arabia?”

The Death of the Liberal World Order

The US project of imposing a liberal world order has a long pedigree going back to US president Woodrow Wilson a century ago. The pro-democracy efforts by US President George W. Bush resulted in the Arab spring years later but failed to establish liberal democracy other than in Tunisia where it did not last. WithContinue reading “The Death of the Liberal World Order”

The Israeli Annexations of Alawite and Druze Regions

Israel has no choice but to defeat Hezbollah after Hezbollah attempts to “annihilate Israel” with mass use of chemical weapons following upon Israel and America’s destruction of the Iranian nuclear weapons program. Hezbollah is dispersed throughout Lebanon and Syria and therefore defeating Hezbollah requires liberating Lebanon and Syria. This is self-defense, proportional and military necessity.Continue reading “The Israeli Annexations of Alawite and Druze Regions”

Islamization vs. Freedom of Religion

Islamization is the creation of a religiously coercive environment where there is no freedom of religion. This is similar to how religion is informally coerced on all Jews living in Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) cities and neighborhoods in Israel. While religious enclaves must be tolerated under freedom of religion, Islamization certainly is not legitimate when it isContinue reading “Islamization vs. Freedom of Religion”

Russia Deters America in Ukraine

Why is America not admitting Ukraine to NATO and putting an end to the threat of a Russian invasion of Ukraine? The US should militarily deter Russia from invading Ukraine yet it is the US that has ended up deterred by Russia. The Biden administration wields the threat of economic sanctions against Russia despite PresidentContinue reading “Russia Deters America in Ukraine”

Yes Let’s Bury the Two-State Solution

The PA “foreign minister” Riyad al-Maliki has claimed at the UN Security Council that there is a choice limited to 1) Israel withdrawing to the pre-1967 indefensible Auschwitz lines, 2) turning Israel into the world’s only non-nation state or 3) an Apartheid state. Al-Maliki seemed hysterical. The reason of course is that he falsely considersContinue reading “Yes Let’s Bury the Two-State Solution”

Leftwing Anti-Semitism Must be Delegitimized

One key problem facing the Jewish world is the mainstreaming of leftwing Anti-Semitism. The IHRA definition of Anti-Semitism as widely endorsed by liberal democracies recognizes Anti-Zionism as constituting Anti-Semitism and some Western leaders have condemned BDS, there are however no national leaders outside of Israel speaking out against leftwing Anti-Semitism generally of which BDS ofContinue reading “Leftwing Anti-Semitism Must be Delegitimized”

The Octopus of Terror

Islamist movements generally believe in the existence of a worldwide Jewish conspiracy to destroy Islam. This is an integral part of the Islamist Weltanschauung (comprehensive worldview). It should be kept in mind that Islamists actually seek global control and Islamist world rule and therefore the Anti-Semitic notion that the Jews have a similar ambition doesContinue reading “The Octopus of Terror”

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 KRG must Change

There is deep mistrust between the political forces of Iraqi Kurdistan and the political forces of Syrian Kurdistan. Yet it is primarily Iraqi Kurdistan that needs to change in order to facilitate the creation of an independent Kurdish state in half of Kurdistan, i.e. the Syrian, Iraqi and Iranian sections.  Feminist democratization and liberalization haveContinue reading “The KRG must Change”

Halting the Wave of Regression in Liberal Democracy

There has for the past two decades been a wave of regression in liberal democracy around the world. There is also a global phenomenon of semi-democratic leaders and semi-democratic movements that are nominally democratic but are actually undermining liberal democracy. What is needed are new constitutional protections for liberal democracy and Germany and Israel areContinue reading “Halting the Wave of Regression in Liberal Democracy”

What Tehran Thinks of Nuclear Deterrence

What is Tehran’s perspective on nuclear deterrence? Iran generally believes that liberal democracies with their humanitarian sensibilities are not very serious about nuclear deterrence. One exception is the United States under Republican administrations since Republican presidents are generally perceived as “mean” and “dangerous”. However, Iran does not believe that there is any risk in attackingContinue reading “What Tehran Thinks of Nuclear Deterrence”

The Jewish People should Declare War on the Muslim Brotherhood

The ongoing surge in Anti-Zionism in the United States is fomented by an alliance of leftwingers with the Muslim Brotherhood which is an international intelligence agency whose agents are trained at deceiving and politically defrauding its “partners” and other victims. What do the Muslim Brotherhood which seeks to introduce sharia law as state law, includingContinue reading “The Jewish People should Declare War on the Muslim Brotherhood”

The US Should Support the AANES for its Liberalization and Democratization

The AANES (Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria) has made significant progress towards liberal democracy and more progress should be expected as the AANES is exceptionally successful in its feminist liberalization and democratization. In fact, the AANES is a model for liberalization and democratization for Muslim societies generally. The AANES is instilling liberal andContinue reading “The US Should Support the AANES for its Liberalization and Democratization”

An Independent Kurdistan Needs to be a Liberal Democracy

The Kurds in both Iraq and Syria rule themselves and the only thing that is missing is the liberation of Iranian Kurdistan to create an independent Kurdish state in half of Kurdistan, something which is both realistic and feasible. There is no doubt that the Kurds of Iran would be the first to respond positivelyContinue reading “An Independent Kurdistan Needs to be a Liberal Democracy”

The Haredi Demographic Revolution

Nearly all Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) Jews were annihilated during the Holocaust and have since through high fertility rates and proselytization among non-Haredi Jews grown to 1,8 million people, the majority living in Israel and the second largest community being in the United States. When Israel’s first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion (1886-1973) granted exemption for military serviceContinue reading “The Haredi Demographic Revolution”

Multiculturalism goes too far when it Tolerates Totalitarianism

Respecting other cultures and living in coexistence with others are important values, yet multiculturalism certainly goes too far when it is extended to respecting totalitarianism. Many advocates of multiculturalism deem all opposition to Islamism generally to be Islamophobic and intolerant. Theocracy which Islamists advocate is not compatible with freedom of religion, surely a cornerstone ofContinue reading “Multiculturalism goes too far when it Tolerates Totalitarianism”

Liberating Judea and Samaria

The Abbas regime is corrupt, autocratic and kleptocratic. 80% of Palestinians wants Mahmoud Abbas to resign according to a recent Palestinian opinion poll. Despite being secularist does the Palestinian Authority systematically engage in Jihadist incitement in its system of education and regime media. Jihadism tragically permeates Palestinian society not only in Jihadist-controlled Gaza but alsoContinue reading “Liberating Judea and Samaria”

Israel’s Theocratic Threat

Israel is under severe theocratic threat. Israel’s Jewish Talibans oppose liberal democracy, modernity, gender equality and LGBTQI emancipation. Using their position in the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, have Israel’s theocratic parties perpetuated religious coercion that are leftovers from the Ottoman Millet system, with a view towards eventually transforming Israel into a theocratic state. The domestic struggleContinue reading “Israel’s Theocratic Threat”

The Poisonous Politics of Islamophobia

In order for Muslims to be properly integrated into liberal democratic open societies need Muslims participate in public discourse on the same terms as everyone else. This means equality and freedom. This requires fighting Islamophobia so that Muslims feel welcome to participate in public discourse like equal citizens with equal rights. However this is underminedContinue reading “The Poisonous Politics of Islamophobia”

Understanding the AANES

Officially is the AANES (Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria) a socialist libertarian autonomous state. However, in practice it has not implemented any “socialist” or “libertarian” policies and de facto is the AANES independent from Ba’athist Syria. The de facto official ideology of the AANES is instead feminism which permeates all aspects of lifeContinue reading “Understanding the AANES”

Liberalization without Suppressing Religion

Secularism in Turkey and Iran during the 20th century was anti-religious in actively trying to limit the extent of religion in society. This led to a backlash in Islamists coming to power. The secularization policies of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and Mohammad Reza Pahlavi were in this sense clearly counterproductive. However, their respective heritage remains aliveContinue reading “Liberalization without Suppressing Religion”
