Israel/Sudan Normalization? – Stephen Lendman

Further Betrayal of Palestinians – Global Research

The old idiom says, “possession is nine-tenths of the law”, but in the case of the dispossessed Palestinians, occupation represents one hundred per cent of the law after their land was usurped due to Israel’s creation some 82 years ago.

A Peace Deal Like No Other – Unz Review

It is odd that the White House is gloating over its claimed peace agreement in the Middle East at the same time as one of the signatories is bombing Syria, Lebanon and Gaza.

The ‘Israeli’-Emirati Alliance: Geopolitical Impact on Africa – Global Research

The African Angle To explain, “Israel” already has considerable influence in East Africa, especially in Ethiopia, South Sudan, Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda.

Twilight in the Desert for Saudi and MBS? – New Eastern Outlook

Now that her allied neighbors, the UAE and Bahrain, have formally agreed to recognize Israel, MBS is under significant pressure to join the US-brokered initiative.

That hasContinue reading “Twilight in the Desert for Saudi and MBS? – New Eastern Outlook”

Trump’s Dirty Business as Usual Middle East Agenda – Stephen Lendman

Time and again, when US policymakers announce a new dawn, everything stays the same or deteriorates. Tuesday at the White House was the latest deception during an orchestrated signing ceremony.

The PA Rises up to Fail the Palestinians at Every Occasion – The Palestine Chronicle

It is a pity that Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas wasted so much time in declaring that no one has the right “to speak on behalf of the Palestinian people.” The statement was made within the context of the US-brokered deal normalizing relations between the United Arab Emirates and Israel, which has allegedly stalled annexation of land from the occupied WestContinue reading “The PA Rises up to Fail the Palestinians at Every Occasion – The Palestine Chronicle”

Who Profits from the Beirut Blast? – American Herald Tribune

The narrative that the Beirut explosion was an exclusive consequence of negligence and corruption by the current Lebanese government is now set in stone, at least in the Atlanticist sphere.

It Is Now the “Israel-led” Coalition that Is Destroying Yemen – Global Research
