Iran and the New Land Corridor

editor 27 December 2017

By Emil Avdaliani.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 690, December 19, 2017

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Reports emerged recently suggesting that Iran-backed forces are closer to controlling the Syria-Iraq border. This would mean Tehran will now be able to link up with its Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah. If this scenario is correct, after 12 years of conflict in Iraq and another conflict in Syria, Iran is steadily transforming into a more powerful geopolitical player whose influence will be projected hundreds and maybe thousands of kilometers beyond its borders.

Storm clouds gathering over the region…writes isi Leibler

editor 30 November 2017

By Isi Leibner.. The volatility of political activity in the Middle East region is dizzying. The Syrian civil war is almost at an end. President Basher Assad remains in power and Iran and its surrogate Hezbollah have emerged as the clear victors. Disconcertingly, both the Americans and the Russians have apparently reached an agreement over Syria that would enable Hezbollah and Iranian ground forces to remain – effectively threatening Israel’s northern borders.

Ending the War in Syria Could Be a Disaster for Europe

editor 21 September 2017

By Mordechai Kedar.. Blinded by the smokescreen of the war against ISIS, the world failed to notice that Tehran was taking over considerable parts of Syria — particularly in the sparsely populated center and east of the country. This Iranian takeover is being implemented by Shiite, Iraqi, Afghani and Iranian militias — but primarily by Lebanese Hezbollah. That group has been given a free hand to do whatever its leader, Hassan Nasrallah, pleases in western Syria, which is the more fertile part of the country and home to most of the population.

editor 5 August 2017

By Caroline Glick.. Israel weighs its options in the face of a dangerous military buildup across the border. Last month (June 2017) IDF Military Intelligence chief Maj.-Gen. Herzl Halevi made a stunning revelation. Hezbollah and Iran are transforming the terrorist group into a military force capable of independently producing its own precision weapons. (more…)


Column One: The New Middle East

editor 5 October 2016

By Caroline B. Glick.. So Obama let Syria burn. He let Iran and Hezbollah transform the country into their colony. And he let Putin transform the Mediterranean into a Russian lake. A new Syria is emerging. And with it, a new Middle East and world are presenting themselves. Our new world is not a peaceful or stable one. It is a harsh place. The eastern side of the city, which has been under the control of US-supported rebel groups since 2012, is being bombed into the Stone Age by Russian and Syrian aircraft. All avenues of escape have been blocked.

Bennett: Israel is World’s ‘Front Post’ Against Global Terrorism

editor 16 September 2016

By Jonathan Benedek.. Education Minister and Chairman of the Jewish Home Party Naftali Bennett told a counter-terrorism conference Monday (September 12, 2016) that Israel is the world’s “front post” in the battle against terror. “No nation is as threatened by terror as we are,” Bennett told the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism annual conference. “We’ve got Hezbollah in the north, we’ve got Jabhat al-Nusra in Syria, we have ISIS in Sinai, we have Hamas in Gaza – four of our frontiers with the deadliest terror organizations in the world, yet we’re thriving and we’re leading the battle because we’re here and we’re not going anywhere.” (more…)

Obama Can’t Let Iran Get Away With Murder

editor 22 July 2016

By Toby Dershowitz.. The Obama administration has long said it will hold Iran accountable for acts of terrorism. It now has a chance to prove it: Interpol red notices for five former Iranian officials found culpable in Argentina’s deadliest terrorist attack are about to come up for renewal. Today (July 18, 2016) marks 22 years since the bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires. Eighty-five people were killed, and the attack injured hundreds more — innocent men, women and children. (more…)


This day in history: Argentina 22 years after the AMIA Bombings

editor 21 July 2016

By Dania Tanur.. The Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah is widely believed to have carried out the attacks with Iranian backing. On this day in history, July 18, 1994, a suicide terrorist drove a car filled with explosives into the Jewish community’s AMIA (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina) center in Buenos Aires, Argentina, causing a horrific hit to the largest Jewish community in Latin America and the sixth largest Jewish population in the world. Eighty-five people were killed and over 300 were injured, making it the worst terrorist attack in Argentina’s history.

In first, Hezbollah confirms all financial support comes from Iran

editor 5 July 2016

By Dr. Majid Rafizadeh.. In a speech broadcast on Friday (June 24, 2016), Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Lebanese militant group Hezbollah scoffed at the recent US sanctions stating that these sanctions will not impact his group whatsoever due to the fact that Hezbollah receives full financial and arms support from the Islamic Republic of Iran. [Photo top right: Nasrallah: “We are open about the fact that Hezbollah’s budget, its income, its expenses, everything it eats and drinks, its weapons and rockets, come from the Islamic Republic of Iran.” (Photo: screengrab)] (more…)
