Further evidence, if it were needed that the Arab/Israeli 'peace process' is a farce. Long time observers and experts of the Arab/Israeli conflict have continually dismissed (particularly) Israeli efforts to resolve it. The corrupt Palestinian Authority, through its weakness, has assisted the stream of belligerent Israeli governments in the pretence of a 'peace process'. Over … Continue reading US Palestine/Israel ‘peacemaker’ is a life long friend of Netanyahu.
Since Trump and Netanyahu met a few weeks ago, the rabid dog Israel, has appeared much more low key. I believe Trump advised his counterpart to let the latter to continue the provocation that is intended to give the US and its allies the excuse to properly attack Syria. Criticism of Putin is foolish. He's … Continue reading Tough guy Trump takes the heat.
Israel have warned Syria that they will destroy all their air defences if they attack Israeli jets that fly over Syrian territory. So, if Syria has the temerity to defend itself against invading fighter planes, who ever they may be, Israel will destroy it's S 200 and S 300. Good luck with that. The parallel … Continue reading Don’t defend yourselves!
For all Donald Trump's bluster about policy changes during the election campaign, he has actually carried on where Obama left off.

The incompetent Abbas is the kind of partner that Netanyahu will thrive on. The Palestinians need a charismatic leader, not a shuffling, unelected 80 year old. Anyhow, here is the … Continue reading Gideon Levy: Two state solution debate.

Because of the complexity of the situation, with each organisation vying for absolute control, it's difficult to know how it will end. It's good news for Syrian loyalists but the … Continue reading ‘Moderate’ opposition acquiescing to extremist factions in Syria.
The BBC announce that 'Israel approves delayed settlement homes'. 'Now we can build' a Jerusalem official says, as staunch supporter Trump takes office in the US.

They have the biggest thug around looking after them … Continue reading Israeli bragging rights…..
....Your cowardice dealing with Israel will be your legacy. Obama's ability to speak in public is unquestionable. That was the reason he was elected in the first place. He could wipe the floor with the opposition because of his excellent timing and poise. Sadly, that's where his talents ended. His two terms have been a … Continue reading Obama, good riddance.
