Can Trump (assuming he wants to) transform US foreign policy
in the Middle East? To get a sense for how difficult this might be, we must
appreciate how traditional the pro-jihadi policy has been. (It wasn’t just
Will Trump be different? Israeli patriots expect him to be.
After all, he postures as an enemy of Iran and ISIS. But, what evidence will
be diagnostic that Trump really is delivering
on his Mideast promises?

Fernando del Rincón interviews FGW for CNN. Topic: Mosul offensive against ISIS. (Spanish)
How to explain that, after four decades of US policy in the
Middle East, the theocratic and Islamist Iranian state—part of the ‘Axis of
Evil’ according to George Bush Jr.’s diatribes—is stronger than ever?
This series of articles is a primer. It contains selected historical
knowledge minimally sufficient to abandon the ‘Establishment model’
of geopolitical processes and to begin constructing an alternative model
that will explain and predict
the world of international relations. In the space immediately below
we will be publishing one new installment of this series every two weeks.
THE IRAN DEAL: WHAT DOES IT TEACH US?
after signing the US-Iran nuclear deal, Iran tested ballistic missiles—meant
for Israel—that can carry nuclear warheads. The US response? Nothing. What geopolitical theory
can explain this?

The Rojava Revolution in northern Syria is a gender-equal,
fiercely democratic, religiously tolerant Muslim movement that is bravely fighting and defeating
ISIS on the ground. It is inspiring ordinary people all over the West,
and some are lining up to fight with the Rojavans
against the Islamists. Those interested in world geopolitics and the future
of democracy worldwide would do well to pay attention to the fate of the
Rojava movement. For its fate, like the fate of Republican Spain in the
prelude to World War II, will be a harbinger of things to come.

Nov 2015 – Jan 2016
At a Jewish community event called ‘Día Limud’
I spoke of Netanyahu’s claims concerning the relationship between the German
Nazis and Husseini, father of the Arab Palestinian movement and creator
of PLO/Fatah, today’s
‘Palestinian Authority.’ This information, I explained, is the Achilles
heel of the enemies of Israel. In attendance, José HamraSassón, former News Director of Mexico’s Channel
11 (TV), challenged me to produce a single academic reference to support
myself. An interesting public debate with Hamra
ISIS attacks Paris, all eyes on ISIS: a gang of terrorists
that lord a chunk of the Middle East and claim to be ‘a State.’ Out of
nowhere they came, it seems. But any hat trick needs misdirection—the
magician’s trade. Now you see it, now you don’t.Case in point: strike terror in Paris, capture the attention, erasehistory. ISIS was US policy. It was brewing since 2003,
when the US invaded Iraq and ‘gifted’ Iraqis with jihadist terrorism that
set the US-military prison system to overflowing, becoming a “jihadi
university,” as the general in charge called it. When “jihadi university”
graduates produced ISIS, and ISIS produced the Syrian Civil War, the US
helped them again. Pay attention, or
you won’t see the next trick coming

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in a
speech to the World Zionist Congress, stated that Hajj Amin al Husseini,
the founding father of the Palestinian movement, had convinced
the Nazis to exterminate the European Jews. We examine here the
evidence relevant to this claim.
“Peace for Our Time,” announced a proud
Neville Chamberlain after placing the Czechoslovaks in Hitler’s foaming
bite, one he relaxed only to spit threats of European war and anti-Jewish
genocide. “Peace in our time” promised Barack Obama in his inaugural speech
of 2013. History may not repeat
itself, but it does rhyme. Obama prepares already the signature that
will normalize the nuclear program of terrorist Ali Khamenei, ‘Supreme
Leader’ (official title) of Iran, and would-be emulator of Hitler’s crime
against the Jews.
The US government pushes very hard for Israel to give
strategic territory to PLO/Fatah
in exchange for a promise of ‘peace.’ But
what if PLO/Fatah, also known as
the ‘Palestinian Authority,’ is a proxy of Iran?
In the wake of the recent armed
hostilities between Hamas and Israel I have been getting emails from people who believe that the Israeli
government created Hamas, funds Hamas, and controls Hamas. I have seen
the claim on TV and on the radio. I want to be tickled, because I know
where this meme originated. But I can’t laugh—this is too serious.
