Mr. Borrell’s Initiative

Emptiness generates a stronger echo than sounds. This principle applies to politics, especially to political settlements. Although the Palestinian struggle has been ongoing for longer than any other and has generated more conflicts, coups, and turbulence than any other, it is always subject, when…

Gaza’s and Israel’s Tunnels

If Israel were to calculate the losses it has suffered in its ongoing war, it could only come to this conclusion: Gaza, with its tunnels, has become a nightmare that strikes more fear than armies and all their lethal and devastating tools. Israel has dug itself into its own tunnel, and it is…

Al-Arouri…And Lethal Technology

Saleh al-Arouri decided his fate when he chose to take a path that turns one into a prospective martyr. Spending a long time imprisoned in his homeland, or dying a martyr wherever his war leads him. He was threatened with assassination in Türkiye. Although he had reasonable protection, it was not a…

A Calm Letter to President Biden during a Tumultuous Time

Do you know, Mr. President, how many people were killed by Israel in Gaza and who they were? Just to remind you... 20,000 so far... and there is no end in sight. Seven thousand children have gone, not counting the fetuses who died in their mothers' wombs. Young people, adults, elderly people…

This question was raised prior to the current Gaza war, specifically during the rule of Hamas, and before and during every war that occurred at that time. Benjamin Netanyahu constantly repeated it, whether on specific occasions or randomly. Suppose that the current war finally ends. This will…

The Hezbollah Mystery in Al-Aqsa Flood

The Hamas movement fought several major battles with Israel, and with its limited capabilities compared to its opponent, resisted and maintained its rule of Gaza and its friction with Israel. The battles it fought did not involve any external party, “in the sense of field participation.” But in…

Where Will the Palestinian October Lead?

Every war, regardless of its scale and the number of participating armies and nations, inevitably gives rise to political settlements that draw new maps and create entities. This is particularly true of global and regional wars. With regard to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, it is a perpetual…

The Camp… A Tight Space For Conflicts Of Impossible Agendas

With potential for de-escalation in the Ain El Helweh refugee camp becoming stronger as arrangements for a ceasefire proceed, giving mediators an opportunity to facilitate a temporary or permanent solution! These efforts have coincided with the anniversary of the Sabra and Shatila massacre, which…
