The clash of strategic aims between the US and Israel seems inevitably to be leading to an imminent clash of current policies. For the moment, Israel seems to be trying to ameliorate the tension. Their latest ploy is to declare that major Israeli military operations will be finished within two weeks.

The Israeli army's deadly attack on the Palestinian refugee camp in Rafah has once again sparked deep global revulsion against Israel's war in Gaza. Israel's war crime in this attack was so obvious that the main person responsible for this massacre, Benjamin Netanyahu, called it "a tragic event" and claimed that the operation to kill the refugees "went tragically wrong."

By striving to solve the Palestinian issue and weaken extremist and radical tendencies in Israel, in the region, and among Palestinians, there is hope that we are taking steps toward sustainable peace in the region. The highest level of security is achieved under the shadow of economic capability, societal development, and people's support, and this is possible in the light of democratic governance and a foreign policy with zero tension and creating friendly relations with neighbors.

Throughout the past year, they have fought for their rights on every street and in every city of Iran, one way or another. Despite facing challenges such as forced hijab and inequality, they have shown resilience. Many have been imprisoned, fired, and assaulted by men within the Islamic Regime's government, yet these women have never ceased their fight. Their determination remains unwavering, and they will continue to push forward in the coming year. Significant progress has been made during and after the 'Women, Life, Freedom' movement, and their struggle will only gain momentum in the new year. Congratulations to them on International Women's Day

The election in Iran have concluded. Election officials have echoed their 'thrilling epic' slogan, but many view it as a tedious affair. Some former politicians adhered to their promises and refrained from participating. Some joined in with the aim of 'building up' Iran, while others abstained, contemplating Iran's future.

The ICJ’s preliminary rulings on January 26th essentially supported South Africa’s allegation that Israeli actions in Gaza amount to ‘genocidal’ acts. They issued six preliminary measures in which was expressed serious legal concern with Israeli actions.

The divergence of views (between the Islamic Republic and the rest of the world is obvious. Iranian women’s struggle carries on (and is applauded all over the world - no matter the ultimate intentions). Iranian men and women will carry on this struggle despite the Islamic Republic’s oppression.

The root cause of the fear, terror and unending suffering is clear: Israel’s illegal occupation ofthe West Bank and Gaza, and its unbearable system of apartheid imposed on Palestiniansthroughout Palestine/Israel. Palestinians have shown that no amount of firepower will forcethem to flee the only land they have left.The international community MUST force Israel to negotiate.

For the last three weeks, despite massive worldwide condemnation, Israel has carried out an ever-escalating campaign of indiscriminate bombing. At the time of writing, the Palestinian Health Authority has announced the deaths of more than 8000, including over 2000 children. Israel has reduced to rubble thousands of residential buildings, schools, churches, mosques and hospitals. This is not “self- defence”. It is vengeful, indiscriminate slaughter of the most barbaric kind.

The unlocking of some of the Islamic Republic's frozen funds (in South Korea and Iraq) is a part of this 'understanding'. The tightening of the noose around the Mujahidin organization (the Iranian opposition group which was on the US terrorist list for a while) is likely to be another part of this unwritten agreement. If so, this agreement encompasses additional European countries, including Albania, France, etc.  We will know more in the coming months

There is a general movement towards a new order in the Middle East. The Saudis have a far fetched and ambitious vision of grandour. They are not alone, Turkey, the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the UAE, amongst others, have similar ambitions. Sadly, their ambitions focus primarily on industrial -- and specifically military industrial -- goals, and do not extend to social issues and issues of social justice.
This new order cannot mean a period of stability and happiness for the people of the region. Homegrown ...tensions can be as nasty and as tragic as internationally-induced ones. An unorthodox, ambitous sense of self-

The rapprochement and its implications
Saudi Arabia and Iran have re-established diplomatic relations after seven years. Is
this a new Entente Cordial between two rival dictatorships?  It is a welcome, and
hopefully first, step toward lowering the level of tensions in the Middle East.
It is too soon to judge the full impact of this rapprochement and its durability. 
However it has - at least - eased the way for finding a solution on issues like the war
in Yemen (tentative moves toward peace?) and Syria’s status in the Arab world

Earlier this month Iran agreed to allow the IAEA to re-establish certain transparency measures at select nuclear sites. Moreover, this comes on top of the Saudi/Iranian deal to re-establish diplomatic relations. Together, these two welcome events can be expected to decrease tensions in the Middle East.

he Munich Security Conference, on 17th -19th Feb, took place just days before the first anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Contrary to its title, the conference did not further peace or security. Instead, it turned out to be a competition between Western countries over who could pledge the most tanks for Ukraine to continue fighting the Russians.

An attack by quadcopters (small drones) was carried out on a military related facuility in Isfahan on Saturday January 28th. Depending on the source, the attack was successful or NOT successful. Who has done it? And who will benefit from it?

Most accusations and suspicions are towards Israel under prime minister Natanyahoo. If true it would be towards deflecting world attention while Israel expands her illegal expansions in the West Bank.

Political sponsorship: effective international support
Global support and solidarity with the Iranian ‘Women, Life, Freedom’ movement has taken many forms. French President Mr. Macron and German Chancellor Mr. Steinmeier, for example, have met with prominent Iranian celebrities as gestures of humanitarian concern and solidarity with the struggles of the Iranian people.

The uprising in Iran has entered its third month, with no end in sight. At issue is democracy and human rights, not religious dogma . This uprising is for life, for democracy, for human rights, for gender equality and for equality of each individual Iranian, regardless of their ethnic or religious affiliation.

The uprising in Iran goes on, uncontained, with no end in sight. Despite the regime's savage treatment of the protestors, we are witnessing the continuation and deepening of the civil protests. The death of a young woman in custody at the hands of the 'morality police' triggered the protests. Iranian youth from all classes and strata erupted countrywide, from Kurdestan in the west to Baluchestan in the east, with demands 'for a free Iran'. The uprising's duration and outcome are impossible to predict.

One- Iraq wants and needs a leader untainted by suspected foreign patronage.
Two - The government apparatus needs to be cleansed of corruption.
Three - Iraq needs a secular government. Cooperation between Shiite and Sunni forces can be a step in the right direction.
Despite his erratic and sometime contradictory policies, Mr. Sadr may yet be the person to lead this movement. Regardless of whether or not his resignation is final, however, it is hoped that the movement behind the three goals above will carry on. The loss of his...
