Is Israel Getting Ready to Rethink its Strategy in Syria?

On 24 January, a senior officer in the Israeli military intelligence held a special briefing, at which it was reported that there is «the possibility» of Israel rethinking its strategy in the Syrian conflict. The reason? The sharp rise in the number of militants in Syria linked to al-Qaeda who are uncompromising when it comes to Israel. Just two years ago they numbered 2,000, but today this number has increased to 30,000. They have travelled to Syria from countries in the Middle East, Europe, America...

Russia and Middle East Policy: Story of Success and Growing Clout

 Resurgent Russia is asserting itself in the Middle East as a big an important international player. The recent diplomacy that averted a U.S. strike on Syria underscored the extent to which Moscow’s steadfast support for its last remaining Arab ally has helped to solidify its role. Russian President Vladimir Putin has emerged as the world leader with the single biggest influence over the outcome of a raging war that is threatening the stability of the broader region.

In the Shadow of American Geopolitics, or Once Again on Greater Israel (II)

The world is moving towards a global war for resources, and this primarily concerns the Persian Gulf. Assessing the situation in the Arab-Muslim world in relation to this, Oded Yinon writes: «...The Moslem Arab World is built like a temporary house of cards put together by foreigners (France and Britain in the Nineteen Twenties), without the wishes and desires of the inhabitants having been taken into account. It was arbitrarily divided into 19 states, all made of combinations of minorities and ethnic groups which are hostile to one another, so that every Arab Moslem state nowadays faces ethnic social destruction from within, and in some a civil war is already raging»...

The Jordanian Front of the Syrian War

According to reports from Israeli intelligence sources, the night of October 6-7 the Syrian government army began a new offensive, this time in the south. Two tank brigades (around 200 tanks and armored vehicles) moved toward Quneitra. The Israelis believe that the immediate goal of this large-scale operation is to liberate territories adjacent to the occupied Golan Heights from the rebels. As a result, all contact between the illegal militant groups and the Israeli army will be cut off and they will be unable to receive military assistance from Israel...

Syria Will not See Peace during Ramadan

There have been shifts in the leadership of Syria’s armed opposition. Following defeats in recent weeks and the broad offensive carried out by government forces, the leaders of the opposition have, by a small majority, elected Saudi Arabia’s protege Ahmad Assi al-Jarba to replace the man from Qatar and become the new leader of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces (NCSROF)... From now on, it will be probably the most undemocratic government in the world that is going to be wholly in charge of Syria’s «democratic» opposition – the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia...

Kerry Takes up Syria in Moscow: Start of Bumpy Road or Attempt to Inveigle into Foul Play?

...The Assad’s government remains stable enough; Russia, China and other states are staunch preventing an outside intervention. But by endorsing the Russian initiative Washington pursues its own goals... There is no ground to believe the most ardent radicals will give up arms. The pro-Western opposition would also like to enter the capital backed up by the force ready to support it further on... It’s expedient no avoid Russia being used for pushing Assad to make unilateral concessions. Like, for instance, it was done the 1990s when Milosevic led Serbia during the Yugoslavian crisis. Then they will exert pressure on Damascus keeping Russia away...

Iraq: Crisis After Crisis, or Stable Instability

A new round of escalating tension amid political stand-off marked the new year in Iraq... The situation exploded on January 25, when millions of Muslims gathered for Friday prayer. It’s hard to say what exactly the mullahs in the Fallujah mosques were saying but the people clashed with army servicemen. It went on for a few hours, after lunchtime the city saw mobile groups of armed men who opened fire against the military. The daily death toll was three servicemen and five civilians, over 80 people were wounded... The Iraqi parliament is actually paralyzed, the government is plunged in scandals, armed violence is one of the highest in the world, the desire for changes is rapidly spreading around in the Iraqi society...

Syria the Bleeding and Spreading Wound (II)

As Lakdar Brahimi, while in Beirut canvassing support for his proposal for an Eid Festival ceasefire in Syria warned “This crisis cannot remain confined within Syrian territory»,… «Either it is solved, or it gets worse... and sets [the region] ablaze». This was for most observers no more than a statement of the obvious when one looks at the developments in the countries of the region...

Jordan on the boil; who’s next?

The Brotherhood in Jordan gave notice to King Abdullah II that he had time till October to accede to their demand to transform the Hashemite Kingdom into a constitutional monarchy. That deadline has passed...Both Israel and Saudi Arabia are “stakeholders”, so to speak, in the outcome of the confrontation building up in Jordan. From the Israeli viewpoint, a Brotherhood victory in Amman completes an Islamist arc stretching from Libya and Egypt to Lebanon and potentially Syria...As for Saudi Arabia, the stakes are even higher. All sorts of Manichean fears will be racing through the Saudi mind this week. If the Brothers on the march in Jordan succeed in overthrowing the regime, it could well be Saudi Arabia’s turn next.

Turkey, Islamic State and USA

The Turkey’s contemporary Middle East policy is inconsistent. On September 11 in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) the foreign chiefs of the United States of America, Iraq, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and the Persian Gulf monarchies declared their intention to “eradicate” the Islamic State. It’s worth to note that Iran and Syria were not among the participants. Just before the event Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Dovutoglu had held a meeting of the cabinet to announce that Turkey would not take part in ground operations and other actions on the Iraqi soil limiting its role to intelligence gathering and logistics. The decision echoes the country's refusal to allow the United States to station 60,000 troops in Turkey in 2003 to invade Iraq from the north, which triggered a crisis between the two allies.
