Israel’s Operation Protective Edge Stymied

Israel’s offensive against HAMAS in the Gaza Strip is stymied. The operation Protective Edge has produced no results. With 2 thousand civilians dead and hundreds of houses demolished not a single mission is accomplished; no matter experts believe that Tsahal is the strongest Middle East force. The HAMAS leadership and armed formations command have suffered no losses; Israelis prefer not to remember their own first statements about complete elimination of the group. HAMAS still has the major part of its missiles stockpile intact. The missiles’ range covers the larger part of Israel, including Ben Gurion international airport. The network of tunnels dug under the territory of the Strip was partly destroyed and, probably, rapidly restored. Reaching the first densely populated areas Tsahal suddenly stopped and even pulled back…

Can Israel Win in Gaza?

Gaza Strip has been bleeding for already 50 years. Palestinian leaders change, the Israeli governments come and go, but the process never stops. This small chunk of land with the population of one and a half million people never leaves completely the world radar screen. It always follows the same kind of vicious circle. Sometimes the reports come saying Tel Aviv has finally decided to settle the Gaza problem. Normally such news are followed by new victims and damage inflicted by Israel and it all turns back to where it was. That’s what is happening this time too. No operation Solid Rock, as they call it, launched against Palestinians can stand in Gaza where there is no solid ground for a rock to stand on. Israel will report about delivering a shattering blow against terrorists, while Palestinians will mourn their next of kin and start to brace up for next fight...

Hamas Goes Back to the Drawing Board

...The Iranian regime keeps up with the practice begun by Imam Khomeini to observe the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as the International Quds Day. It is an occasion to express solidarity with the Palestinians. The influential political figure Alaeddin Broujerdi, chairman of Iranian parliament’s national security and foreign policy commission, has been quoted as saying, «This year’s Quds Day has a special place due to the ongoing crisis in Muslim countries, especially Syria and Egypt, as well as the futile peace talks». The Hamas’ presence in Tehran on August 2 will provide a clue to assess the realignments following the coup in Egypt.

The Gaza conundrum (III)

The eight-day conflict in Gaza brought to the fore the role of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi who belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood as the sole regional mediator between the Palestinians and Israel. Egypt cannot be easily dethroned from this enviable position in a near future. This has vast implications for the power dynamics in the Middle East... Turkey and Iran are the two most affected regional powers in this shift in the regional dynamics. These two countries found themselves to be at a disadvantage...

The Gaza conundrum (II)

Clinton’s fulsome praise for Morsi and indirectly for the Muslim Brotherhood underscored the phenomenal shift in Washington’s perspective on the Egyptian protagonists during the recent three-month period when US-Egypt ties hit a low point following the large-scale anti-American demonstrations in Cairo in September. Full credit goes to the Qatar emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for taming the Sphinx on the Nile banks. The yeomen service rendered by the two «Islamist» leaders in repairing the damage caused to the US-Egypt ties and the western interests in general following the downfall of Hosni Mubarak is without parallels in the region’s muddled history...

The geopolitics of the conflict in Gaza: U.S. calculations and miscalculations (III)

As soon as Obama was re-elected president of the USA, many came to expect that the relationship between Israel and the U.S. would deteriorate sharply, as everybody remembers the swordplay between the head of the White House and the Israeli Prime Minister, as well as the outright bet on the Republican candidate Mitt Romney by Netanyahu. It appears, however, that those who thought so greatly exaggerated. Those who were right were mindful of the strategic nature of relations between the two countries and the enormous influence of the Jewish lobby in the U.S....

The geopolitics of the conflict in Gaza: Hamas' calculations (II)

Israeli experts point out that as a result of the "Arab Spring" Hamas has significantly increased in military-technical and political terms. Moreover, in recognizing their responsibility for launching rockets at Israel, which it avoided until recently, Hamas has demonstrated that it no longer fears a direct confrontation with the Israeli military machine...A ground operation against Hamas in Gaza can be a repeat of the sad experience of the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 2006. The Islamists in Gaza are no less powerful, trained and motivated than Hezbollah, which forced the then Israeli army, perhaps for the first time in its history, to withdraw due to high battle losses in southern Lebanon, and without solving any of the objectives...

The Geopolitics of the Conflict in Gaza: The Israeli Plans (I)

The whole course of events  proves that the Israeli military and the state machine operate in accordance with a predetermined plan, and it consciously and deliberately provoked the conflict in Gaza...Events around Gaza have, on the one hand, intimidated the Palestinian leadership, and on the other, served as a dress rehearsal for its removal...Consequently, from December a truly great war against the Palestinians may begin…

NATO Eyes Transnistria

President Obama and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry attempted to craft a so-called "coalition of the willing" to help the United States fight the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in both Iraq and Syria. Obama was only able to enlist the support of the fragile new Iraqi government, the battered Kurdistan Regional Government in northern Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. The latter "partner," Saudi Arabia, has been ISIL's main benefactor. Obama also foolishly said he wanted to arm the "Free Syrian Army," even though many of its original members joined ranks with ISIL and its ally, the Al Nusra Front after being trained and armed by CIA and U.S. military teams in Jordan and Turkey...
