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.

USA Support of Israel

Recently, the Israeli prime minister, Netanyahu, stated that the occupied Syrian Golan Height is part of Israel. This occupation is violating the UN resolution as well as international law.
Since its creation, the US government has supported the Israeli aggression.
Few days ago the NYT stated that President Obama’s administration has constantly supported Israel by, more than any other American president, by using its right to veto any resolution  at the Security Council, which is against Israel.
The rejected resolutions and the Israelis ignoring international law, allowed them to increase their aggression against the Palestinians. They demolished thousands of Palestinian homes as part of their ethnic cleaning strategy. Furthermore, 85% of Palestinian lands are under Israeli rules.
The US policy has been the major factor that has contributed to the rise of international terrorism.
