Another day, another Jihad

Another day, another Jihad called on Israel. If you were to ascend to the role of Iran’s highest religious authority, the enshrined and supreme Ayatolah, would you not feel the awful recoil associated with unoriginality when making such an announcement? Despite the Sunni majority in “Palestine,” America’s premier Sunni boogymen, such as ISIS or any of its previous incarnations, have seldom made any signs of aggression towards Israel.  More so, sworn Sunni enemies of Israel like Saudi Arabia and Egypt have exchanged their Jihad calls for business meetings, finding scores of financially beneficial dealings more agreeablel than the traditional practice...

Assad's PR Dream

No one wants to admit this fact, but Bashar Assad has had a few months of good public relations. In recent years, the English trained optician turned “Butcher of Damascus” was most commonly mentioned in Western media in connection with indiscriminate bombing campaigns and chemical weapon deployment. Given such a track record, not many foresaw Assad becoming the last hope of the Syrian Kurds   Since 2014-2015, the Syrian Civil War lacked a key element found in all of history’s Civil Wars: a conflict amongst countrymen. With the rise of ISIS and the Al Nusra front, foreign fighters – mostly...
