Tel Aviv reported that successful talks had been held in Paris with the participation of the intelligence services of Israel, the United States, Egypt and the Prime Minister of Qatar on the release of hostages and another “humanitarian pause” in this regard. However, neither Mossad chief David Barnea nor Shabak chief Ronen Bar reported that Hamas had reached a final agreement on the topic. The Qatari Prime Minister Mohammed al-Thani, who represents Hamas in the negotiations, initially apparently conveyed a different position to his Palestinian partners. Specifically, Hamas rejected…

Traditionally, at the beginning of the new year, Professor Klaus Schwab, the founder and Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), since 1971, has gathered at the famous ski resort in Davos a regular summit of world politicians, businessmen and representatives of the leading media to discuss the current state and prospects of the world economy and other topical issues. One can treat this forum in different ways, but the fact remains that it is the flagship club gathering of business and political players in Switzerland. More than 1,000 major companies and organisations are members of the WEF…

Recently, international and regional media outlets have been increasingly circulating reports and news articles with condemnatory and even accusatory rhetoric against Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been heading Israel’s interim crisis cabinet since the events of 7 October 2023. This is not about the traditional Arab attacks on the Israeli prime minister, which have become a “classic” column in all Middle Eastern publications. At the moment, Israel’s allies from the Western bloc of states are recording losses from supporting Netanyahu’s line. For example, the UN training centre URNWA…

Although Turkish Parliament Speaker Numan Kurtulmuş recently criticized the lack of cohesion and disorganization in the Islamic world regarding the struggle of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, there is still significant activity in the Middle East by pro-Iranian forces against Israel. The Houthis in Yemen and Hezbollah in Lebanon are among the groups at the forefront of the pro-Palestinian movement. They have been carrying out attacks on Israel and its allies in the region, which is creating a new reality in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Since November 2023, the Houthi militia…

As the unipolar world created by the West is slowly but steadily slipping into the abyss, it is becoming more and more obvious what kind of “hegemon” the United States is. At present, as well as in the past, this state does not comply with the decisions of international organisations created by it, resorting to solving any problems only with the help of brute military force. At the same time, Washington and its armed forces kill and maim hundreds of thousands of people around the globe with impunity and without any shame. It is enough to remember what the “democratic”…

Since October 7, 2023, around 100000 Palestinians have been reported missing, killed, or injured in the Israel-Hamas war. Israel is committing ethnic cleansing in the Gaza enclave. The Israeli government has put the ounce of this war totally on Hamas. However, analysts around the world see this claim with much suspicion. Israeli forces are conducting indiscriminate operations in the Gaza Strip. Many hospitals, schools, Mosques, and Churches have been bombed by the Israeli forces in Gaza since October 7. More than 100 hundred journalists have…

The Middle East traditionally remains a region of high tension and no less high gravity of interests of the key countries of the world community. Naturally, this is due to the numerous contradictions of interests of intra- and extra-regional forces, the strategic position of the Middle East at the junction of Asia and Europe, as well as its rich resources (primarily oil and gas). The ongoing war between Israel and Hamas has divided the world according to preferences towards the parties to the conflict, or rather attitudes towards the traditional values of justice versus the right of force…

The unexpected Hamas attack on Israel in early October 2023 put many Arab states in a difficult situation. It should be recalled that a number of states signed the Abrahamic agreements on pacification with the Israelis in 2020, while the remaining states maintained a tough course towards the Jewish state. Thus, this process is most visible within the Gulf Cooperation Council of Arab States (GCC). The Arabian monarchies are divided. Kuwait, Oman and Qatar accused the Israeli authorities of aggression and violence. Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE)…

Military and political tensions in the Middle East around the Palestinian-Israeli conflict are gaining new momentum with a bias towards the expansion and internationalisation of the conflict – from local to regional. On the one hand, pro-Iranian forces in Lebanon, Yemen, Syria and Iraq are creating a belt of high tension for Israel and the targets (military, diplomatic and commercial) of its Western allies. On the other hand, the military forces and intelligence services of the Israeli-Western…

You know something on a new level is going on when Bernie Sanders, a Jew who almost became US president, who normally just can’t bring himself to go back tracking on his claim that the war against Hamas must go on, in spite of the fact that everybody and anybody with half a mind releases that the unconditional support for Israel in its methods of mass murder, collective punishment, and revenge attacks, is on the level of being one of Hitler’s Willing Executioners…

The ongoing Palestinian-Israeli war in the Gaza Strip is acquiring new forms of internationalisation of the conflict. It is no secret that the disproportionate actions of the Israel Defence Forces in destroying civilians and destroying infrastructure in Gaza are aimed not only at eliminating Hamas as a militant and political force, but also at forcing Palestinians as much as possible into so-called “voluntary resettlement” from the enclave and restoring Tel Aviv’s full control over the seaside territory. Israel’s actions are widely resented by the overwhelming number of countries in the Middle East…

Recently, the world has seen unprecedented tensions between Iran and Pakistan. Both countries have conducted strikes over each other’s territories amidst the surging tensions across the Middle Eastern region and beyond. Iran has conducted strikes over Syria, Iraq, and Pakistan due to multiple factors. However, what caught the world’s attention was Iran’s missile attacks on Pakistan, as the latter is a nuclear power known for its military capabilities…
