Iranian Internet blackout - Unintended consequences

Re: Israel

In terms of moral right I would say that the Palestinian Arabs have much more of a moral right to the country than the current crop of Jewish occupants Neverfail, the glaring error in your assertion above is that a tiny fraction of Arabs have lived in the disputed area prior to the 20th century and...

Re: Israel

If the West Bank and its inhabitants are better ruled by Israel than by any Arab state, I find its control by Israel more important than any international law. I draw your attention to something you posted some time ago in another discussion Sertorio: 'A people who have been conquered are a people ...

Re: Shia Protesters in IRAQ storm IRANIAN Consulate

A few similar articles predict that the Iranian dream of a Shia crescent is crumbling. I think that it is not yet a convincing trend, although like changes have occurred in Lebanon, Syria and Yemen. One thing is obvious the SuShi wars will continue with no end in sight.

Re: Two conflicting views on Syria's future.

We're talking about the Islamic Middle East here . . . All of these geopolitical ruminations will come to naught.

Re: Two conflicting views on Syria's future.

Here are some basic truths about Syria: 1. Assad, an minority Allawite (a sect of Shia Islam) has used the "civil war" aka another site of the continual SuShi war to clens as many as was possible Sunning Arabs from Syria and replace them with Shia Musls. 2. With as many as half a million killed in S...
