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.

Unite Nation’s Rebuke: President Trump Political Blunder


Recently, President Trump declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and that the US Embassy will be relocated in it.
Such political decision is in violation of all UN resolution and of International Law.
Jerusalem and the West Bank were illegally occupied during the 1967 war.
The occupation was condemned by the UN. It instructed Israel to retreat to the 1967 boundaries as stated by the UN Resolution 242.
Israel has and is ignoring such instruction. It has been and is always supported by the US government who used 44 vetoes to prevent the implementation of Resolution 242 which condemn Israel.
On December 12, 2017, Egypt introduced a resolution at the UN Security council rejecting President’s Trump political order. All member of the Council voted in support of the Egyptian Resolution. However, the US representative used its veto to prevent its passage.
The same Egyptian Resolution was then taken to the UN General Assembly on December 20, 2017.  It was supported by 128 UN member. However, the US voted against it.
Since the creation of the State of Israel by President Truman in 1948, American foreign policy toward the Arab World has been the source of political instability, which led to the rise of terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda and ISIS.
The American irrational and aggressive political strategy is the result of corruption that dominates American political institutions.
 H. Reid, the previous majority leader in the Senate stated that the Congress is corrupt. He further said that members of Congress who put their own personal interest ahead of the national interest should not be in the Congress.
Senator Reid was right. Unfortunately, such political behavior of the majority of the members of Congress has been the same since WW II.
One of the major factor contribution to the American political corruption is due to the role of the lobbyists in the nation capital. It represents political and economic groups in the US.
Financial contributions to politicians through Lobbyists plays a major role in influencing foreign and national policy.
I is a well-known fact that AIPAC the American Israeli Public Affairs is the most influential and strongest political committee in the US.
AIPAC influences and shape the American foreign policy toward Israel and the whole Middle East. Its motto is ‘WHAT ISRAEL WANTS, ISRAEL GETS.’
