Welcome to the Middle East Today

The Middle East has traditionally been important for the world economy. The Middle East situation today has an impact on all aspects of life in America and much of the world.

Only by understanding the motivations of the various factions in the Middle East can we hope to understand how to promote peace and national security for Middle Eastern nations, Europe, and the United States.

A Squel on Terrorism

The Christian Science Monitor (1/13/2010) reported on an investigation relevant to the rising power of Al Qaeda in Yemen.

The major factor behind such development is attributed to the Israeli-American policy in the Middle East.

The reporter revealed the views of people he interviewed in Yemen. Those who responded stated that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the source that feeds and nurture terrorism, “that Palestine and its Muslim people will always be in our heart until their liberation.”

Saied Ali Aljamhi also supports the above statement in his book (in Arabic) Al Qaeda in Yemen. The author states that the main factor behind young men joining Al Qaeda in Yemen is attributed to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Furthermore, the author states that he hopes the conflict will be settled so that the arteries that feed into Al Qaeda will be severed. This might weakened the terrorists’ activities.

The above statement is not a new revelation. It has been known for years. Indeed, if American politicians are seriously interested in diminishing global terrorism the Israeli-Palestinian conflict should end, and the proposed United Nations Resolutions should be imposed
