The Success of Russian Psychological Warfare

Russia is currently suffering tactical military defeat on the battlefield in Ukraine and is exhausting its military assets. Yet the outcome is still a stalemate and a military deadlock on the battlefield. However, the Russians are prevailing on the strategic level because they are succeeding in their psychological warfare against NATO and the United States.Continue reading “The Success of Russian Psychological Warfare”

First Things First

American diplomacy and American leadership is imperative in ending the war in Ukraine which undoubtedly is intended by Russia to constitute the very beginning of WWIII. Relations between Moscow and Washington are at their lowest point in decades but it is nevertheless essential for the United States to reach out diplomatically to the Russian Federation.Continue reading “First Things First”

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”

Why Israel Loses Against Enemy Propaganda Warfare

Israel has a policy of not engaging in propaganda and disinformation. Israel engages in Israeli public diplomacy, i.e. it is telling the truth from an Israeli angle. The enemy however as most combatants in armed conflicts engages systematically in propaganda and disinformation. Israel’s major mistake is therefore to not explain its policy of not engagingContinue reading “Why Israel Loses Against Enemy Propaganda Warfare”

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”

Exposing and Discrediting Operation SIG

How can the vast discursive complex of Operation SIG best be exposed and discredited? If we deconstruct Operation SIG discourses, then we find that there is a consistent pattern of Anti-Jewish discursive discrimination, i.e. discrimination against Jews within discourses, mostly against the Jewish state as the collective Jew. The discourses themselves on the surface superficiallyContinue reading “Exposing and Discrediting Operation SIG”

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”

Criticism Should be Conveyed Now

Israel has learned its lesson and now understands that international support for future war needs to be built months before the actual war breaks out. International criticism of Israel’s plans to destroy the Jihadist terrorist organization Hezbollah and its patrons in the northern Levant should be conveyed now to Israeli interlocutors. If nations think thatContinue reading “Criticism Should be Conveyed Now”

Subconscious Racism is a Strategic Problem for Israel

Operation SIG is more active than ever worldwide although now managed by PA intelligence rather than by the KGB which founded Operation SIG. The propaganda discourses of Operation SIG are particularly insidious considering their reliance on subconscious racism against Jews and conscious, yet false universalism since it is based on deliberate racist discrimination within discourses,Continue reading “Subconscious Racism is a Strategic Problem for Israel”

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”

The Poisonous Legacy of Operation SIG

The Soviet Union was very early in recognizing Israel on May 17, 1948 in no doubt hoping that then democratic socialist Israel would align with the Communist Soviet Union. However, the Labor-led government of Israel prioritized relations with fellow liberal democracies. The Soviet Union became officially Anti-Semitic in propagating the conspiracy theory that the UnitedContinue reading “The Poisonous Legacy of Operation SIG”

Explaining the Next Gaza War

Why is the predominant international reaction every time Israel wages war in Gaza that 1) Israel must restrain itself, 2) there are too many civilian deaths and 3) Israel must immediately cease its operations?  Israel is intensely suspicious of foreign countries and their intentions towards Israel and there are mutual suspicions against Israel. This hasContinue reading “Explaining the Next Gaza War”
