The Knesset: The Likud and Israel Beytenou have introduced a draft law to give statutory force to Israel's undertaking to promote the creation of a Kurdish State, in any of the following territories: Turkey, Syria or Iraq. During the Cold War, Israel struck up an alliance with the Iraqi Kurds and promoted Mustafa Barzani to the rank of an official of the Israeli National Intelligence Agency, Mossad. In contrast, Israel fought with the Turkish Kurds, including those that took refuge in (...)
Although the global medias treat the events in the Greater Middle East as unconnected incidents, Thierry Meyssan interprets them as successive moves on the same chess-board. He sees the conflicts around Israël as an organic whole and questions whether President Trump has the capacity to arrive at regional peace.
The din that surrounds the US withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal hides the real issues. The most important thing is this fundamental fact: Israel is a nuclear power while Iran is not one.
Seen from the West, three democratic elections have just been held in Tunisia, Lebanon and Iraq. But for the People of these nations, the votes had little to do with the democratic ideal, because the institutions that were imposed upon them by the West were designed to prevent them from having a free choice of their leaders.
In response to the United States backing out of the nuclear agreement, the Revolutionary Guard have attacked Israël from their Syrian bases. Are we headed towards a new regional war, or is this an operation intended for the interior use of Iran?
Although for the most part, observers are taking sides in the Russo-US conflict and hoping for the victory of their camp, Moscow is attempting to calm the atmosphere in the Middle East. It is therefore opposed to an attack on Israël by Iran, just as it was opposed to an Israëli operation against Iran in 2008.

One year after Brussels I, and following the previous three pledging conferences in Kuwait as well as the London Conference in 2016, the Conference renewed and strengthened the political, humanitarian and financial commitment of the international community to support the Syrian people, the (...)
Contrary to the picture portrayed by Atlanticist propaganda, Thierry Meyssan takes a long-term view of international relations. For him, what we have seen in Syria over the last seven years is not a civil war, but rather a seventeen-year regional war in the greater Middle East. This vast conflict, from which Russia emerges victor over NATO, is gradually giving rise to a new world equilibrium.

Over the last four years, all commentators have underlined the impossibility for Russia to deploy ground troops against the jihadists in Syria at the risk of reliving their defeat in Afghanistan. But what is true if Moscow confronts Washington by proxy is false if the two great powers agree not only on the future of Syria, but the whole region. Thierry Meyssan was the first journalist in the world to announce the arrival of the Russian army in Syria in 2015. He is today the first to announce the deployment of its infantry.
