Trump's Double Toe Loop

... which lying at the core of the talks on the so-called final status. The wave of violence caused by Trump’s decision will be difficult to stop, as the U.S. President does not back down from his word. Anti-U.S. sentiments will continue to mount in the Islamic world, which will put the lives of American citizens at risk. The threat does not just come from the Middle East, but also from Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, etc. Trump is doing a disservice to Israel, which needs peace with Palestine in order ...

Donald Trump: The 'Unreliable Flip-Flop Loser' President Who 'Lacks Stamina'

Within three days of a bizarre chemical gas poisoning incident in Khan Sheikhoun, Syria, the United States ratcheted up its global judge, jury and executioner role by firing a salvo of Tomahawk missiles on a Syrian airbase that was used to combat Daesh terrorists.  No due process or investigation was sought; not even a declaration of war that can only be sanctioned by Congress – something President Donald J. Trump had reminded his predecessor Barack Obama over the latter’s policy of unilateral military...

Sinister Twilight in the Desert: The Coming End of ‘Wahhabism’ and its Aftermath

... under guidance from Washington and London. Even now, calls are rising from Iran to Turkey to Pakistan for a new stewardship over Islam’s holy cities of Mecca and Medina. Wahhabism is being conveniently scapegoated for all the ills afflicting the Islamic world even though its forms, practises and manifestations were a recurring theme that long predated the sect. The new plan kicked off with the Aug 25-27 Grozny conference themed “Who are the Ahlu-s-Sunnah” (People of Sunnah) in which ...

Will Erdogan resort to regional nuclear blackmail?

... the bogeyman du jour. Unwitting players in this game of musical chairs may include Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, Moscow or Jerusalem – with the hot seat exchanged in sync with Erdogan’s neo-Caliphate goals and hysteria levels in the Islamic world. Factitious flexibility will be the order of the day. Therefore, it was not incongruous for Ankara to seek normalization of ties with Syria on July 13, only to declare that “Assad must go” during the hours leading up to the ...

Is the UN relevant anymore to Greater Eurasia?

On April 24, Armenians commemorated the 101st anniversary of the 1915 genocide that consigned 1.5 million men, women and children to a torturous end. The Anglo-Saxon world, which was battling the Turks during this period, appeared powerless as another 700,000 Assyrian and Syrian Christians, 350,000 Greeks and an unspecified number of Syrian Muslim intellectuals were killed at the hands of sadistic Young Turks and their Kurdish errand boys. A century of international double-standards The post-WWI...

Greater Eurasia vs Greater Eurabia: The Fault-lines Emerge

Two centuries ago, the Austrian statesman Klemens von Metternich astutely observed: "Asia begins at the Landstrasse.” Nations east of this Viennese street, were already exhibiting parochial undercurrents that were contrarian to Western thought. This fault-line remains with modified contours, exacerbated by the trifecta of EU failures in its immigration, economic and foreign policies. Eastern Europe refuses to drown with its Western half in that cesspit of totalitarian multiculturalism...

Malala Revisited: The Fraudulent Iconism of ‘Children’s Rights’

... Congressional Human Rights Caucus on October 10, 1990. Many members of the US Congress voted to wage war against Iraq after this fraudulent, heart-wrenching testimony. Almost 12 years later to the day, it was time for another child-hero to emerge from the Islamic world to advance Western geopolitics. Overnight, Malala Yousofzai became the most famous schoolgirl in the world, and an inspiration to millions of schoolgirls who had never heard of her before. The Malala mania, in fact, ran in parallel with ...

Organization of Islamic Cooperation: Priorities and Policies

... observer. The accession process had been launched by President Putin in 2003 during his working visit to Malaysia, where he addressed the 10th OIC Summit in Putrajaya and declared the need for Russia to join because the country is "interwoven with the Islamic world." [1] Ten years after Moscow began the relationship, it is quite appropriate to draw attention to the OIC's new role in the worldwide Islamic community, its ability to counter global challenges and solve its own problems, as well as ...
