After 10-years of a brutal war launched through mercenaries that came close to destroying the Syrian state, the Syrian army is on the verge of liberating all its territory. The latest example was Deraa. Only Idlib remains under Daesh control. How long will the terrorists last?
Iraq is trying to play a significant regional role to try to reduce tensions. It also serves Iraq’s interests, as the Baghdad summit showed.
The Zionist occupiers of Palestine continue to kill and maim Palestinians. There is also a determined push to occupy Masjid al Aqsa with a view to destroying it so that the Zionists’ mythical third temple can be built over its ruins.
Zionist Israel would not be able to get away with its murderous assault on defenceless Palestinian civilians many of them children and women, without political, economic and diplomatic backing from Western regimes.
Netanyahu is a ruthlessly cynical politician. Facing criminal charges that are likely to land him in prison, he decided to unleash the war on Gaza killing hundreds of innocent people in order to cling to power. Even his murderous spree is unlikely to save his hide.
Israeli occupation forces continue to keep Palestinian men, women and children in appalling conditions in prisons. Many are tortured and humiliated. Some prisoners have completed 29 years in jail. Zionist Israel, the pariah state, operates as a lawless entity.

The United Nations was created to prevent the eruption of future wars but it has been a roaring failure. Far from solving any problems, it has created many. Whose interests does it serve?
Israel’s campaign of ethnic cleansing in East Jerusalem continues in high gear. Palestinians are being evicted from their homes that illegal Zionist settlers promptly occupy. Like the illegal regime, its court system is also completely biased against the Palestinians.

The latest round of Western sanctions on Syria are meant to starve the people and push them to a point where they will rise up against the government. This is likely to fail, as have previous attempts even if it creates much misery for ordinary Syrians in the short-term.
Donald Trump has given the greenlight to Benjamin Netanyahu’s theft of more Palestinian land as if the ill-mannered American owns it. Informed observers have warned of dire consequences.
Syria’s genuine opposition groups that have always advocated a non-violent approach to change, have received scant attention in the Western media. We break this silence and reveal the genuine opposition, unlike the groups financed by the Western powers for their own ulterior agendas.

Donald Trump is desperate to get re-elected as US president in the November 2020 elections. Aware that he would need the support of the Israeli lobby in the US, he is willing to give them anything they want and then some. His so-called deal of the century is part of this plan but far from bringing peace, it will lead to more chaos and turmoil in the region.
Turkey has come to the aid of the internationally-recognized government of Libya. It has also announced plans to explore gas in the Eastern Mediterranean. Should Turkey succeed in shoring up the government in Tripoli, it could pose a threat to the regime in Egypt.
While few would mourn his death, British spy and mercenary James Le Mesurier had outlived his useful for his imperialist/Zionist bosses. His housemaid had revealed he was stressed and suffered from high blood pressure in the days prior to his death/murder. Le Mesurier knew his days were numbered.
The Ansarullah Islamic movement in Yemen has astonished most observers as it has withstood the five-year onslaught waged by a coalition of heavily armed states.
Gaza has been describes as an open-air prison. It is much worse. Its grim statistics—95% of the water being undrinkable leading to many otherwise preventable diseases, lack of food and lack of desperately-needed medicines—all point to the people’s alarming plight at the hands of Zionist occupiers.
The Sisi regime in Egypt is one of the most brutal in the long tortuous history of the country. In Egypt’s dungeons, political opponents are tortured to death but the West still receives this brute in uniform in their capitals.

The military regime in Egypt has instilled such fear in people that they have all become informants for the government.

By massacring unarmed civilians that were merely holding a sit-in, the military has brought Egypt to the brink of civil war. While the military may have the guns and may be able to kill a very large number of people, they have lost all credibility and will ultimately pay a heavy price for such brutality.
The July 3 coup in Egypt has set the people of Egypt back by many decades. The brutal crackdown on supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and mass killings prove the military’s evil intentions.

Exactly a year after peoples’ uprisings shook the Muslim East (Middle East) driving three dictators from power, considerable uncertainty still prevails. Elections have been held in Tunisia (October 23), Morocco (November 25) and Egypt (November 28–29; December 14–15 and the next round scheduled for January 9–10, 2012), but they have failed to stem unrest.

The people of Egypt are gradually waking up to the reality that it is one thing to drive a dictator out, even one that has been around for as long as Hosni Mubarak — 30 years — and quite a different matter to change the political system and the culture of entitlement that has grown within it. There are many constituencies that have unfairly benefitted under the old system; they are not likely to give up their privileged positions so easily, Mubarak or not.
More than a year after the ouster of dictator Hosni Mubarak, Egyptians are faced with a curious dilemma that is both promising as well as frustrating. It is promising because the military regime has been forced to bring forward the date of presidential elections to May.
