Trump Peace Plan – Sheer Genius – Israel Gone by 2022

... Israel: From Holy Land to Homeland, The Culture of Critique, and We Will Not Be Silenced – The Academic Repression of Israel’s Critics. In my view, the new peace plan should be welcomed for what it is – a throw-away – and rejected. Palestine and Iran should now propose a new larger peace summit with the leaders of China, Russia, and Turkey as well as Syria and Jordan – and perhaps others as observers, certainly including the Kurds – and begin to hammer out a holistic sustainable peace plan that will show the latest “offer” to be a farce. Peace in the Middle East – and the ...

... mainly in Tripoli, unless an agreement is reached among militant groups in addition to Turkey, the UAE, Qatar, Egypt, the USA and Russia. The impeachment process of US President Donald Trump and the US role in the MENA region would determine the future of conflicts in many countries starting from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya and the future government in Lebanon, Iraq and Algeria, Turkey and Iran. It is also expected that many MENA capitals will witness protests that would change the balance of power in the region. ...

Article as Published: No War on Iran If Rouhani “Makes the Call”

... presidents were together at the United Nations, we tried very hard to get Rouhani to reach out to Trump with a three-minute video suggesting a one-on-one conversation in New York, or a presidential summit in Istanbul that would include the Presidents of Turkey and Syria. More recently, and I believe the article has been forwarded to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tehran from Moscow, I published “Helping Iran Make the Call” at the Russian International Affairs Council. Apart from completely destroying the media story about the US getting ready to wage war on Iran – I would point your readers to an excellent article by Tom Rogan of the Washington Examiner, “Here’s how you’ll ...

A Scenario in Syria

What might be a “second option” for Russia in Syria? The situation around Russia in Syria is up for debate. No doubt, Russia would like to lead a reconstruction effort in Syria, in harmony with all relevant partners, including the UN, the EU, the USA, China, India, Turkey, Iran, Israel, the Sunni Arab states including the Golf Council Countries (GCC-states), Egypt and Morocco. However, many of the parties on the list of wished-for partners are strongly hostile to each other, and it might therefore perhaps not be possible ...

Idlib May Split RussiaTurkeyIran Alliance

... leaders of Troika discussed "all steps", that is, all options on this issue. With less than two months left until the next summit of the “Astana troika”, the situation in Idlib may prove to be a catalyst for positive change within the Russia-Iran-Turkey alliance, bringing intra-alliance cooperation to a whole new level, or it may trigger the onset of its collapse. Urging against such a split, Erdogan told his partners: "If we have passed the sea, we cannot drown ourselves in the river." ...

The Astana Shackles

It is becoming increasingly more difficult for Moscow to retain its position as an honest, if not completely independent, broker On February 14, the leaders of Russia, Turkey and Iran will meet in Sochi to discuss Syria and hold separate bilateral meetings.

Russia and Turkey: Approaches to Regional Security in the Middle East

... in light of the upcoming U.S. presidential election. Instead, Russia decided to rely on those regional powers which had actual influence on the situation in Syria. This led, in late 2016, to the proposal of the Astana format of Syrian negotiations, with Russia, Turkey and Iran acting as guarantors. The process began at the same time that Aleppo returned to the full control of the Syrian government forces. Given these developments in the Middle East, at the theoretical level, Russian researchers concluded that with the ...

Syrian Surprises

... Turkish factor is also complex. Observers are under the impression that Ankara is currently manoeuvring between Moscow and Washington in a desperate attempt to secure a foothold in Syria. This much was evident at the summit on Syrian settlement between Russia, Turkey and Iran held in Tehran. On the one hand, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan appears to have successfully staved off the planned massive offensive in Idlib by the Syrian Army with support from Russia and Iran. On the other hand, Ankara has finally ...
