    In my opinion Pentagon should think twice bedore air-strike against al-Assad regime as the right address might be Qatar-funded mercenaries led by Al Qaeda. At the moment, it is difficult to see what desperate situation would have caused al Assad to use chemical weapons. His opponents however have the motivation. So has the "free and democratic world" forgotten the Iraq WMD disinformation campaign? Despite how US acts one should notice that there is already lot of foreign intervention in Syria: Russia, Hizbollah etc are giving weapons and support to al Assad regime; US, Saudis etc are giving weapons to sc freedom fighters; Qatar etc are financing al Qaeda's fighters and Kurds get support e.g from Iraq. US might launch its air-strike but bottom line is that foreign fighters have already their boots on the ground. In my opinion the mayority of the people of Syria are calling out for peace and reconciliation and a political solution to the crisis. The probable short term result will be dissolution of Syria – some kind of new Balkanisation or Somalization as it already happened in Iraq. The country might fragment, as Kurds and Alawites form their own mini-states. The positive outcome might be that second piece - after North Iraq – of Kurdistan will be established while it remains to see when regions from Iran and Turkey will join to this long-felt need.

For Netanyahu, hatred of Arabs is a matter of policy

Netanyahu is balking at nothing in his holy war against 'the Arabs.' He’s turned the government, the Knesset and the legislative process into a sad joke, hitting rock bottom with a bill to expel Israeli Arab lawmakers.

Drilling for Hamas tunnels Gaza
Hamas tunnel threat burrows into minds of Israeli military, political leaders

Hamas may have told Israel it isn’t looking for another war in Gaza, but it’s clearly desperate to advance its attack tunnels. It’s also delighted to be sowing seeds of discontent and concern among the Israeli public.

Friendship is not about the possession of another, in soul and body. (Illustration)

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
