History repeats itself: When weeds invade the land, it means the owner is absent

Middle East regime changes by the United States and its allies have changed the world forever. The US decision to invade Iraq had a pyromaniac effect in the Middle East. We are watching how the Western countries — by trying to remove President Assad of Syria by giving arms to the rebels in Syria — […]

Sharon dies: Fake your death, you will know who loved you

Sharon is dead. The death of the former Israeli Prime Minister was big news but not a surprise considering he was in a coma for many years.  For Israelis, Sharon was certainly a hero. For Palestinians, this man was the evil that caused so much death defending the State of Israel. Nobody is invincible to […]

Nelson Mandela dies: The death of an elderly man is like burning a library

Nelson Mandela is dead, long live Mandela! Mandela left us a great legacy. So much has been said about his life and his achievements, from a freedom fighter to prisoner to a statesman. He was certainly a true incarnation of Ghandi’s vision. Nelson Mandela, one of the greatest men of our time, was an inspiration. Here […]

Iran nuclear deal a mistake: A bad cook also has his/her share of the bad food

While I hate to agree with the Israeli Prime minister, who qualified the new deal between Iran and the West over Iran’s nuclear program as an “historic mistake”, I do. Iran resembles a naughty child in time out (embargo), who promises his parents that he will not be in trouble again. The world knows that […]

US involvement in Syria a mistake: A wrong step by the leader is a warning for those following

From Alexis de Tocqueville to Vladimir Putin, the European view of American exceptionalism has not changed a lot. America is still a country born from a revolution, built by immigrants, a country of severe inequalities and imperialism. President Putin’s article in the New York Times is a lesson of history, morals, and a warning toward […]

Obama, don’t attack Syria: Only the person who wears the shoe feels it when it pinches

Obama, don’t attack Syria: Only the person who wears the shoe feels it when it pinches

Recent criticism about President Obama seeking congressional approval to attack Syria proves once again how the American media is obsessed by wars. Clearly the President of the United States doesn’t know what to do. If he attacks Syria without congressional approval, he will be blamed for any failure. Looking for approval, he is accused of […]

Democracy not for Arabs: You don’t know a man before he takes a woman

The Obama administration is struggling with how to deal with the Egyptian chaos. Listening to Senator McCain, he believes that the US has no credibility in Egypt. I agree with him. I can add that the US has a credibility problem in the whole Muslim world. Muslims are not Christians and are not part of […]

NSA LEAKS : If your mouth turns into a knife, it will cut off your lips.

The man behind the U.S. surveillance leak, Edward Snowden, is making his case harder for himself by speaking too much to the media. Only two countries on earth is willing to accept him on its soil and surely they will  face retaliation from the United States. Countries such as China or Russia may give him […]

Obama on Egypt : Silence is more than just a lack of words

President Obama has been choosing his words carefully regarding the trouble in Egypt. He is in a difficult position. On one hand, he may be happy to see the Muslim Brotherhood removed from power by a military coup. On the other hand, he is a defender of democracy. Recalling his speech in Cairo to the […]

The newly elected President of Egypt: Love makes a man blind and deaf

The newly elected President of Egypt has been put under house arrest. What just happened in Egypt is a military coup. The Egyptian people have rejected Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt is moving slowly but surely toward anarchy. The country will be ungovernable no matter who is elected. The US and the West who preach their […]
