  • Israel's Arab allies have no delusions that it will change its colonial policies

    The current Israeli government asserts constantly that it is not seeking any political agreement with the Palestinians. This is not for fear of the collapse of the current coalition, which lacks harmony and is being targeted by Benjamin Netanyahu. It’s because no one in Israel is on this page...

  • Israel’s Pegasus spyware and its global consequences

    Israel’s export of technology used by repressive regimes to establish their authority, not only over their political opponents, but also against large parts of civil society, is nothing new. News of this has been spreading since 2017 at least and the inauguration of the Arab-Israeli alliance under the auspices...

  • Netanyahu’s visit to Saudi Arabia has serious implications for the region

    Despite Saudi Arabia’s denial, it is definite that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the Kingdom on Sunday, where he met with Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. This, though, is not the most dangerous aspect of Saudi Arabia’s stances towards the Palestinian...

  • The dawn prayer protests provide an example of Palestinian steadfastness 

    Palestinian Muslims in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem are engaged in an initiative known as the Great Fajr (Dawn) Prayer protest in mosques across the territories. It started in the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron, which has had a major portion cordoned off by the Israeli occupation authorities for...

  • The shocking facts behind the gas fields in the Eastern Mediterranean

    The gas fields controlled by the Israeli enemy in the Eastern Mediterranean, from which Egypt imports gas today, are Egyptian fields located in the Egyptian economic waters, as confirmed by many sources. This is clearly demonstrated by a quick measurement of distances using any tool available to the public,...

  • In dissolving the PLC, which enemy is the PA fighting?

    Without detracting from the importance of the legal debate regarding President Mahmoud Abbas’ announcement regarding the dissolution of the Palestinian Legislative Council by the Constitutional Court, as well as the importance of discussing the legitimacy of the Court itself, the move confirms what has long been suspected about the...

  • The legitimacy and necessity of Arab revolutions

    Palestinians in the Gaza Strip continue to engage in daily, epic struggles, in various forms. Yet while they struggle against such odds, their example shows up the squandered potential of the Arab nationalism elsewhere. Gaza, besieged and exposed is inhabited by merely 2 million people. Yet it still stands, steadfast,...

  • Hamas' regional standing: Reality and potential

    Hamas derives its regional standing from a number of factors, beginning with the importance of the Palestinian cause to the region and the world. Despite the apparent decline in the priority of the Palestinian cause imposed by other urgent and immediate matters elsewhere in the region and the world,...

  • Sisi’s army’s leak… the history of state tyranny

    There has always been determination, in the state’s crimes, to distinguish between itself and those going against the state or actors outside of this political unit that forms the world order. This is the moral reference that defies any other reference and is superior to any other reference. It...

  • Why does Europe hate Erdogan?

    Recent years have revealed the Western perspective, especially Europe’s perspective, on Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s leadership of Turkey as well as the European vision of Turkey itself. The West has been intensely hostile towards Erdogan personally and even insults have found their way into official and unofficial discourse. In light of the...

  • Sisi’s leaks reveal new rules for understating Egyptian policies

    The recent leaks aired on Mekameleen TV may help political analysts overcome the chronic imbalance in their approaches to the official Egyptian behaviour. The result of these imbalances is that they have perceived impressions of the Egyptian government making them see it in a false light and they do...
