  • The lie of the Palestinian state

    The more that the pressure on the leaders of the Zionist state has intensified, the more that its friends in the West have promised to establish a Palestinian state in order to end the 76-year conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians and stabilise the Middle East. Such “promises”,...

  • The displacement plan is still present, but …

    Reuters news agency and the American channel, CNN, published a report, supported by satellite images, about what is happening on the Egyptian Rafah border, in what was said to be a buffer zone with an area of 20 square kilometres near the border. Equipped tents are being built in...

  • The victor gets to set the conditions for peace

    When a war comes to its conclusion, the two parties generally sit at the negotiating table, either face to face or through intermediaries, to thrash out the terms of the ceasefire. The victor usually speaks first, setting out their terms and conditions. The vanquished generally has no option but...

  • Zionist attacks against UNRWA are proof of the global war on Gaza

    It was no surprise to seer the US and its Western allies suspend their funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), as they are all involved in one way or another in the war against the Palestinians in Gaza alongside...

  • We did not protect Egypt’s 25 January Revolution, and look where we are now

    The thirteenth anniversary of Egypt’s glorious 25 January Revolution passed quietly. The media did not commemorate it, and it was completely absent from the programme schedules. It is no longer called the January Revolution officially, but the “January events”, which are blamed on the deteriorating economic conditions in the...

  • Legitimate resistance is the key to a Palestinian victory

    The genocidal Zionist war against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip has been ongoing for nearly four months without the occupation state achieving any of its stated goals. It has not eliminated Hamas, and has not been able to liberate the Israelis held hostage by the movement. Instead, some...

  • South Africa did what the Arab countries should have done, but didn’t

    It was not done by a neighbouring Arab country that shares its borders, nor an Islamic country that belongs to the same religion. Rather, it was done by a country thousands of kilometres away. It was the people of South Africa who were horrified by the bloodshed in the...

  • Arouri’s assassination was not an Israeli victory; it confirmed its defeat

    The Zionist state of Israel has been unable to present its people with any victory on the battlefield that they can celebrate with their flags and be proud of their supposedly invincible army. There is no military credibility in killing innocent civilians, mainly children and women. The so-called Israel...

  • A purely Palestinian year

    Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on 7 October is the most important event, not only in the year 2023, but it is the most important since the October War of 1973, i.e., half a century ago. It is the earthquake that shook the entire world, and shook the ground beneath the...

  • Israel shall not achieve in peace what it could not get through war

    After more than 80 days of brutal and ferocious war on Gaza Strip, the Zionist entity has not achieved any of the goals it announced before the war. It hasn’t been able to eliminate Hamas, nor has it been able to free Israeli prisoners. Rather, it killed three of...

  • A night on which the Zionists wept

    When the Shujaya neighbourhood in Gaza was stormed last week, it was a very dark night, especially for the Zionist enemies. The moon, though, shone brightly in the sky above the besieged Palestinian territory, a territory filled with pride and dignity. It was a night on which the Arab...

  • You’ve reached a dead end

    The late Syrian poet Nizar Qabbani wrote a famous poem titled “The Fortune Teller” sung by the late singer Abdel Halim Hafez. He says at the end of it, “your grief will grow until it becomes a tree and someday, oh my son, you will return defeated, heart-broken, and...

  • Gaza is the new Hiroshima but the world stands and watches

    As soon as the truce ended, which they called a “humanitarian truce” although they know nothing about humanity, they resumed their barbaric bombardment on the east and south of Gaza with great intensity on the remaining houses, hospitals, places of worship, and vital facilities with the aim of forcing...

  • October 7 was a watershed for the occupation, but not the kind that Israel and its allies expected

    In the ongoing nightmare of normalisation and the rushing of the Arab tyrants to visit the usurping entity and kiss its rulers’ feet, there is a light among the darkness emanating from the occupied land of Palestine. It is not just any old light. It is the bright light...

  • Gaza remains steadfast

    The war on the Palestinians in Gaza has entered its 46th day, and resistance against the Zionist enemy remains steadfast. The determination and will to confront the occupation forces boldly and courageously are still there, despite the genocidal destruction of the enclave. Israel’s dirty war has targeted civilian infrastructure...

  • Why did the Muslim leaders bother to convene?

    After 36 days of criminal Israeli aggression against the Palestinians in Gaza, and what is clearly a “text-book case of genocide”, with more than 11,000 Palestinians killed, residential and government buildings and hospitals destroyed, and farms and fields burned, the leaders of 58 Arab and Islamic countries convened to...

  • Gaza may well change the world, not just the region

    We are now into the second month of the Israeli attack on the Gaza Strip, following Operation Al-Aqsa Flood carried out by the Islamic Resistance Movement, which shook the occupation state and its allies to the core. Israel is taking its rage out at this humiliation on innocent civilians,...

  • A peace conference or a racism conference?

    Representatives of 31 countries and 3 international organisations gathered in Cairo to hold a summit called the “Cairo Peace Summit”, in the presence of the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres and the President of the European Council, not to stop the brutal Israeli aggression against the people of Gaza, which...

  • Gaza is defending the dignity of an entire nation

    Despite the destruction, pain and great sacrifices made by the Palestinians in Gaza, the military and political victory over the occupation state on 7 October signalled the beginning of the end for the Zionist colonial project. It not only shattered the myth of the invincible Israeli army — the...

  • Al-Aqsa Flood drowns Israeli myths of invincibility

    Operation Al-Aqsa Flood carried out by the armed wing of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, over the weekend has exposed the fragility of the occupation state of Israel. The Zionist state’s famed security and intelligence apparatus failed its citizens, spectacularly so, leading to the most serious defeat in...

  • The October victory that the Arabs lost (part 2)

    There are still many secrets regarding military matters, armament, combat tactics and operational performance during the war that have not been revealed yet. Egypt released some documents related to this in 1998, on its 25th anniversary, but they were of little importance and did not reveal a dangerous secret....

  • The October victory that the Arabs lost

    As soon as the month of October arrives every year, knives rain down on it from every direction to undermine the 1973 war; to turn the victory into defeat. Sometimes this is done by the Nasserites, out of hatred for Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, at whose hands victory was...

  • Saudi-Israel normalisation seeks the complete surrender of the Palestinians

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was very clear about Saudi Arabia’s inclination towards normalising with the Zionist enemy in his speech at the UN General Assembly: Israel, he claimed, is “at the cusp” of normalisation with the Kingdom. Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman said that his country...

  • The Oslo Accords are the war Israel won without fighting

    The 30th anniversary of the cursed Oslo Accords is upon us; 13 September 1993 was the day that the Palestine Liberation Organisation signed an agreement with the Israeli enemy, after the First Intifada, the anniversary of the end of which falls on the same day. The uprising shook the...
