Trump Peace Plan – Sheer Genius – Israel Gone by 2022

... beneath the border. The one important assistance that the USA could have offered is not present: 100 water desalination plants favoring the Palestinians who remain under a water siege – a form of collective punishment that is a war crime. Jordan, Iran, Syria, and Russia should plan for the use of force against Zionists moving into the Jordan Valley, and against Zionists who refuse to withdraw from the Golan Heights belonging to Syria. The economic offerings are ludicrous and will never materialize. Iran and Palestine ...


2020 Forecast: Revealing the Future of the Middle East

... the sub-region of the Middle East: North Africa, the Gulf and the Fertile Crescent (the Levant and Iraq).

... for expanding economically there. So this is practically the reality of Russia’s Syria policy as of today. Andrey Kortunov: Russian Foreign Policy in the Middle East: Achievements and Limitations How does Moscow view the Israeli-Iranian rivalry in 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 ...


Helping Iran to Make the Right Choice

..., building upon repeated declarations by the Iranian leaders that they do not want to leave the JCPOA and no less frequently repeated declarations by president Trump that he is ready to discuss around a table with Iranian leaders.

Perhaps a practical way forward could consist of distinguishing the long-term perspective from the short-term challenges. Regarding the long term, it’s not too early for Russia and Europe to start discussing foreign military presences in Syria ...


A Scenario in Syria

... stay then out of all the Syrian border-zone to Turkey and also stay out of Kurdish areas. In northern and eastern Syria Arabs, Kurds, and Turkey might then “negotiate” their own balance (maybe fighting bitterly). If ISIS should rise anywhere in Syria again, Russia would offer the supply of air power to any party fighting ISIS—be as it may, Kurds, west-supported rebels, Iran, whomever - but nothing more than air power. Bottom line would be, that the whole area south of Homs (including Damascus) all the way down to Golan, with such a Russian strategy, would be “free-for-all”. Between Golan and up to the south of Homs,...
