Russia and Qatar: Something New in International Politics

The visit of Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of Qatar to Moscow from Jan. 17-19, and his meeting with Vladimir Putin could not have gone unnoticed. But there is more to it than just the bilateral relations between the two countries. The talks between the two leaders focused on the prospects for a political settlement of the Syrian crisis, as well as the status of the oil and gas market. Both parties reiterated their intention to redouble their efforts to resolve the problems there...

America’s Arab Allies Debate Need for Genocide Against ‘Infidels’

Two key allies of the United States are the fundamentalist Sunni governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia – two countries whose ruling families are (like the US Government) hostile to countries that are ruled by Shiites, particularly Iran and Syria. (In Syria, Alawites, including the leader Bashar al-Assad, are the predominant Shia group.)...

ISIL Janissary Army of Sultan Erdogan

In the days of the Ottoman sultans, Janissaries, mercenaries recruited to personally serve as the sultan’s private army, wielded tremendous power throughout the Ottoman empire, which also happened to be the last Islamic caliphate. The Janissaries were mostly recruited from conquered Christian peoples in Albania, Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia, and Bulgaria. Christian families saw their young sons pressganged into military service as soldier slaves for the Ottoman emperor. Normally, the families never again saw their sons...

Amid financial hardship, Erdogan looks to Qatar as 'rich daddy'

A series of controversial steps in the region has left Turkey increasingly isolated in its neighborhood. As a result, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government has gone on a hunt for new “friends.” Normalizing ties with Israel is now back on the agenda. The second door the government has knocked on is Qatar's.

Energy War Heats Up: Israeli-Turkish Normalization and Turkish Base in Qatar

After shooting down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24M tactical bomber jet operating in Syrian airspace, in early December 2015 the Turkish government sent a heavily armed battalion to the Zilkan military base in Iraq. This move ignited tensions between Ankara and the Iraqi federal government, which renounced it as an act of Turkish aggression. Within the contours of a resource and energy war, the Turkish military deployment was a move by the Turkish government to secure its illegal oil trade with the so-called Islamic State (ISIL/ISIS/IS/DAESH)...

Two Mainstream US ‘Journalists’ Provide Stenographic ‘News’ Report – US Anti-Russia Propaganda

Qatar Will Not Help Europe

Yet another scheme with dubious prospects is taking place in Europe’s energy market. On 11 December, a tanker carrying liquefied natural gas will arrive at the Polish port of Swinoujscie from Qatar. As a result, the Polish LNG terminal at Swinoujscie will receive its first 200,000 cubic metres of liquefied fuel, which corresponds to approximately 120 million cubic metres of natural gas...

Qatar Ready for Military Intervention in Syria: Reckless Policy Fraught with Dire Implications

The Russian military operation in Syria has divided the Arab world. One side is made up of the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Jordan, which view Russia's actions with optimism. Their attitude was voiced by Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri, who recently said his nation believes «that the Russian operation will impact the fight against terrorism in Syria and help eliminate it». «Russia is concerned by the resistance to terrorism and the purpose of its intervention is a fatal blow to terrorism in Syria, and its strikes are in line with those of the anti-Daesh coalition in Syria and Iraq». he stated...

Russia’s Policy Towards Arab World

In early August Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made a trip to Qatar. It was not an ordinary visit. In a short space of time he met Emir of the State of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Foreign Minister of Qatar Khalid bin Muhammad al-Atiyah, Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia Adil al-Ahmad al-Jubayr and US State Secretary John Kerry. ..

Why Washington Fears Britain Quitting EU

The countdown begins this week for the momentous question facing Britain: whether to exit the European Union – the so-called Brexit. While the issue seems to be primarily one for British national interests, lurking in the background is a crucial geopolitical concern for the United States. The outcome of the British referendum on Europe could severely undermine Washington’s global hegemonic ambitions and in particular its adversarial agenda towards Russia...
