Syria and Diplomacy

The problem with the Geneva Communique from the first Geneva round on Syria is that the government of Syria never subscribed to it.  It was jointly chaired by the League of Arab States for Syria, whatever that may mean.  Another problem is that it is, as so many diplomatic documents are, highly ambiguous.  It plainly […]

The Palestinian Embassy, for once, has done something useful and released figures that paint a shocking picture of Israel’s mega-crimes against their helpless Palestinian neighbours over the past year. Of course, these […]

Syria Précis

Truth as an Issue by Thierry Meyssan One of the challenges of preparing for the Geneva conference is to write the history of Syria. The NATO powers and the Gulf Cooperation Council are trying to impose their version of events which would give them a clear advantage at the negotiating table. Hence a sudden avalanche […]

Israel Benefits as World Loses

Is there any point in public debate in a society where hardly anyone has been taught how to think, while millions have been taught what to think? –Peter Hitchens What started off as Arab Spring has turned morbidly into Arab Fall. What began as a seasonal description became directional and self-destructive. Not only have movements […]

Let’s Ask About The Rogue State’s Chemical Weapons

They don’t want us to know about Israel’s nukes So let’s ask about the rogue state’s chemical weapons UK Foreign Office ministers seem to have great difficulty answering simple questions about Israel’s terror capabilities.

Syria: Parliament and the British people tell Cameron and Hague to cool it

Gung-ho prime minister Cameron and his sabre-rattling lieutenant, William Hague, were so eager to crank up their war machine that they’d lost all caution and reason. They’ve paid the price with a quite brutal Commons defeat. A decade ago the pair voted “very strongly” for the Iraq war, failing to exercise due diligence and establish […]

Jumping the gun on Syria

British people woke for a second morning to the chilling realisation that the US and UK were not waiting for the results of the UN’s enquiries in Syria before launching military intervention. There’s also a suggestion that the UN inspection team’s remit does not include determining blame for the chemical attack (if that’s what it […]

Their quiver is as an open sepulchre – Jeremiah 5:16 In a Goebbelian reality, where regimes claiming to be democracies do nothing but misinform, cheat, and spy on their citizens, it is difficult to deduce what is really happening in their latest war.

“Two Entwined Red-Lines” ~IDF Intelligence Directorate on Syria, April 29, 2013 A long time ago, Israeli Prime Ministers discovered that their governments are dysfunctional.

Wounded, a roaring lion looks westwards… During the first days of October 2012, several events accumulated into what looks as a Syrian government rebound; one year and seven months after an Arab Spring spinoff-war begun, neither the rebels nor their Western masters have made any significant conquest. On the contrary, the Syrian government has become […]
