The US policymakers have concluded that the Israeli-Hamas war will be a game-changer for the region since their country wouldn’t otherwise undertake such risky narrative-strategic gambles.
One of the Washington’s top priorities is on engaging with the regional states who wield influence with Hamas to negotiate the hostage issue.
If Egypt opens its borders for all refugees, then there’s a very real chance that most of the population will flee, thus raising the likelihood that they’ll be replaced by Israeli settlers sometime after the war ends.
Khamenei’s statement warns Israel against any rash moves that it may come to repent later. He anticipated Israel’s “irreparable defeat.”
The bloody conflict in geographic Palestine comes after 75 years of equally murderous injustice. Under international law, Palestinians have the right and duty to resist Israeli occupation, just as Israelis have the right and duty to respond to the attack on them. It is everyone’s responsibility to help resolve the injustices suffered by both groups, which does not mean supporting the cruel vengeance of some of them. On the other hand, support for the Palestinian and Israeli peoples must not lead to amnesty for their respective leaders for the crimes they have committed, or for the great powers that have manipulated them.
Hamas’ attack on Israel over the weekend prompted speculation among some on social media that the latter knew about these plans in advance.
The Indian reaction to the eruption of violence between Hamas and Israel belies ground realities and ignores the geopolitical environment in that region.
Far from being in favor of Palestine like many wrongly think, Russia believes that it’s just as much to blame for everything as Israel is.
The reason for the Russian military presence in Syria was a new type of terrorist groups, which, in fact, acted as full-fledged armies.
The US backstabbed France in West Africa after cutting a secret deal in Niger almost two years to the day after it backstabbed that same country in the Asia-Pacific.
France is forced to react to the latest trends of patriotic military coups and the US’ pragmatic response to the most recent one in Niger.
Nothing happens by chance in politics. The French don’t understand why French-speaking Africans suddenly reject them. They console themselves by accusing Russia of dark machinations. In reality, they are only reaping the rewards of what they have sown over the last 12 years. This has nothing to do with colonialism or Françafrique and everything to do with putting the French army at the service of U.S. strategy.
