A Middle East Double-Dip

http://www.israelhayom.com/site/newsletter_opinion.php?id=696, October 23, 2011

A Middle East double-dip is ushered-in by the lynching of Gadhafi; the violent alteration of alliances and regime in Libya; the inherent tribal, ethnic, ideological and religious fragmentation in that oil rich country; the volatile Arab Street from North Africa to the Persian Gulf;

US Military Aid to Egypt - Counterproductive

http://www.israelhayom.com/site/newsletter_opinion.php?id=667, October 17, 2011

The transfer of advanced US military systems to Egypt – including the co-production in Egypt of the M1A1 Abrams tank - undermines vital US national security interests. 

Arab Spring? Not Quite

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4062310,00.html, April 29, 2011

The 2011 Middle East upheaval exposes the Arab Street: No “spring” and no “nations,” but the exacerbation of tribal-ethnic-religious-geographic loyalties, splits and power struggles, the intensification of domestic and intra-Arab fragmentation, the escalation of intolerance, violence and hate-culture, the absence of stability, the deepening of uncertainty, exposing the tenuous nature of Arab regimes, the ruthless submission of democracy-seeking elements and the perpetuation of ruthless tyrannies.

January – February, 2011 Middle East Turmoil

Secure Freedom Radio, February 28, 2011

Western policy-makers and public-opinion molders should do away with wishful-thinking and cope with Middle East reality of volatility, instability, violence, shifty regimes and accords and tyranny.

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4017059,00.html, January 22, 2011

The Tunisian turmoil – and its potential ripple effects - reaffirm the critical significance of the Judea and Samaria mountain ridges to the national security and survival of the Jewish State. 

Middle East Sandstorms and Tumbleweeds

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3943768,00.html, August 26, 2010

The US evacuation of Iraq and the 2011 expected evacuation of Afghanistan – and President Obama's preoccupation with the Palestinian issue – remind me of the Texas colloquialism: "When you're smothered by a West Texas sandstorm, don't be preoccupied with the tumbleweeds."

 

In the beginning of 1990, President Bush believed in the New World Order theory, and pursued engagement with – and not defeat of – Saddam Hussein.  He considered the Palestinian issue as the root cause of Middle East turbulence, and therefore pressured Prime Minister Shamir for sweeping concessions.  However, Saddam's invasion of Kuwait in 1990 exposed the fallacy of "The New Middle East" and "The New World Order," sucking the US into a costly, bloody and prolonged quagmire.  

Obama Excludes the Arab-Israel Conflict

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3841505,00.html, January 30, 2010

The exclusion of the Arab-Israeli conflict from President Obama's 2010 State of the Union Address reflects a US order of priorities and, possibly, a concern that mediation in the Arab-Israeli conflict does not advance – but undermines – Obama's domestic standing. In fact, Jerusalem should impress upon the US to reduce its mediation profile, minimize tension between Israel and the American broker, while enhancing strategic cooperation between Israel and its American ally.    

Inter-Arab Politics: A Culture of Violence

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3832221,00.html, January 10, 2010

Israel’s security policies must take into account 1,400 years of Arab violence.

 

Galal Nasser, a prominent columnist in Egypt's al-Ahram Weekly recently wrote: "Violence has become the norm in Arab life, both on official and non-official levels...There are many types of violence besetting the domestic scenes of Arab countries, making relations among them unpredictable and unstable.”

Islamic Terrorism Not Driven by Arab-Israeli Conflict

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3805084,00.html, November 15, 2009

Contrary to the "Palestine Firsters" school of thought, Islamic terrorism is raging the Middle East and the entire globe, irrespective of the Arab-Israeli conflict, independent of the Palestinian issue and regardless of US-Israel friendship, Israel's policies, or Israel's existence.

Root Causes of Anti-Western Islamic Terrorism (5)

Jerusalem Cloakroom #229, November 12, 2009

1.  Contrary to the "Palestine Firsters" school of thought, Islamic terrorism is raging the Middle East and the entire globe, irrespective of the Arab-Israeli conflict, independent of the Palestinian issue and regardless of US-Israel friendship, Israel's policies or Israel's existence. The 1,400 year old Islamic terrorism is not driven by despair, but by local, regional and global religious, political and territorial ambitions, terrorizing Muslims, Christians, Hindus and Jews.
