Opinion: Obama in Asia: The Elephant in the Room - by Gwynne Dyer
Poor old Tony Blair is condemned to spend the rest of his life trying to justify his decision to help George Bush invade Iraq. He was at it again recently, insisting that the threat of Islamist extremism is the great problem of the 21st century. Western countries, he said, must put aside their differences with Russia and China in order to “cooperate” in the fight against radical Islam.

Opinion: Martin Indyk’s Galloping Horse: Moral Crisis at Heart of Obama’s Peace - by Ramzy Baroud
To understand how thoughtless the US latest ‘peace process’ drive has been, one only needs to consider some of the characters involved in this political theater. One particular character who stands out as a testament to the inherently futile exercise is Martin Indyk.

Opinion: Survival Is the Saudi Key Word - by Nicola Nasser
Survival is the key word to understand the Saudi dynasty’s latest external and internal policies. These are designed to pre-empt change but paradoxically they are creating more enemies in a changing world order marked by turbulent regional geopolitics and growing internal demands for change.

Opinion: Why Israeli Officials are Chuckling: The ‘Stable’ West Bank Dilemma - by Ramzy Baroud
Israel’s deputy foreign minister, Ze’ev Elkin, is a member of Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party and his predominantly rightwing cabinet. In a recent interview with The Economist, Elkin used the familiar tone of being conceited and oblivious to such notions as international or human rights, and reaffirmed his rejection of a Palestinian state.

Opinion: Assad Is There to Stay - by Nicola Nasser
Long gone the days when the US-led so-called “Friends of Syria” could plausibly claim that two thirds of Syria was controlled by rebel forces, that Syrian capital Damascus was under siege and its fall was just a matter of time and that the days of President Bashar al-Assad were numbered and accordingly he “should step down.”

Opinion: New American Reality: An Empire beyond Salvation - by Ramzy Baroud
US Secretary of State John Kerry couldn’t hide his frustration anymore as the US-sponsored peace process continued to falter. After eight months of wrangling to push talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority forward, he admitted while in a visit to Morocco on April 4 that the latest setback had served as a ‘reality check’ for the peace process.

Opinion: Kerry’s Looming Deadline and the Peace Process Industry - by Ramzy Baroud
As the US-imposed April 29 deadline for a ‘framework’ agreement between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority looms, time is also running out for the American administration itself. The Obama administration must now conjure up an escape route to avoid a political crisis if the talks are to fail, as they surely will.

Opinion: Mahmoud Abbas vs Mohammed Dahlan: The Showdown Begins -by Ramzy Baroud
When late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was confined by Israeli soldiers to his headquarters in the West Bank city of Ramallah, Mohammed Dahlan reigned supreme. As perhaps the most powerful and effective member of the 'Gang of Five', he managed the affairs of the ruling Fatah movement, coordinated with Israel regarding matters of security, and even wheeled and dealed in issues of regional and international affairs.

Opinion: Libyan convicted of Pan Am Flight 103 bombing was innocent – by Gwynne Dyer
Somebody had to be punished or the intelligence services would look incompetent'. They lied, they’re still lying and they’ll go on lying until Libya calms down enough to allow a thorough search of its archives. That’s what intelligence agencies do, and being angry with them for lying is like being angry at a scorpion for stinging.

Opinion: A Kuffiya for Tony Benn – The British Warrior Who ‘Matured with Age’ - by Ramzy Baroud
Long before the Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment campaign inched slowly from the fringes of global solidarity with Palestinians to take center stage, Tony Benn had been advocating a boycott of Israel with unrestricted conviction, for years.

Opinion: Al-Aqsa vs Israel: The Lurking Danger Beneath - by Ramzy Baroud
Something sinister is brewing around and below al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, and it has the hallmark of a familiar Israeli campaign to strip the Mosque of its Muslim Arab identity. This time around, however, the stakes are much higher.

Opinion: In Birzeit, ‘Trigger Happy’ Israel Vindicates Amnesty’s Report - by Nicola Nasser
In the Palestinian West Bank town of Birzeit early last February 27, the Israeli (IDF) Occupation Forces (IOF) acted determinedly, under the media spotlights, to feed Amnesty International with a show case study to vindicate the report it released only hours earlier, entitled “Trigger-happy: Israel’s use of excessive force in the West Bank,” and to refute the Israeli official diplomatic denial of the contents thereof.

Opnion: Tears of Yarmouk – The Palestinian Lesson that Every Syrian Should Know - by Ramzy Baroud
In the early days of the Syrian uprising-turned civil war three years ago, the writing on the wall of it becoming an intricate regional and international conflict was there for all to see. Palestinians in Syria were likely to find themselves a pawn in a dirty war, but few could have predicted the magnitude of the crisis, and perhaps, few cared.

Opinion: A Premature History of the Second Cold War - by Gwynne Dyer
The first mistake of the Ukrainian revolutionaries was to abandon the February 23 agreement to create a national unity government, including some of the revolutionary leaders, which would administer the country until new elections in December.

Opinion: It’s Abrupt Climate Change, Stupid – by Gwynne Dyer
This is not how it was supposed to happen. The standard climate change predictions said that people in the tropics and the sub-tropics would be badly hurt by global warming long before the people living in the temperate zones, farther away from the equator, were feeling much pain at all.

Opinion: Burma’s Next President - by Gwynne Dyer
Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize winner and champion of Burmese democracy, declared last June that she would run for President in the 2015 election. If she ran, she would surely win: she is to Burma what Nelson Mandela was to South Africa.
