1/1/2014 Will Abbas Defy Islam for Peace with Israel?

Dan Diker

Israel’s release of convicted Palestinian terrorists and Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu’s reported agreement in principle to concessions in the Jordan Valley beg an important question; Can Israeli concessions influence the Palestinians to sign an historic peace deal that ends the Arab Israeli conflict once and for all?

26/11/2013 Hamas in disarray

Dr. Ely Karmon

 There is now a window of opportunity to exploit the organization’s weakness, Egypt’s goodwill and Tehran’s restraint to advance the peace negotiations

3/11/2013 The window of opportunity

Dr. Boaz Ganor

Here in the Middle East, we have long since become accustomed to the status quo being the good news – even the best news – and to any change in it bearing the seeds of imminent catastrophe. The tectonic changes of the Arab Spring revolutions thus portend the danger that fundamentalist Islam might sweep the region, banishing any hint of Arab moderation, conciliation, or peacefulness.

Yet if recent events are ominous, they also constitute a conjunction of rare opportunities with positive potential for Israel.

27/10/2013 The Military Command and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, What Next

Dr. Barak Ben-Zur

In an exceptional and rather dramatic decision a month ago, an Egyptian court banned all activities of the Muslim Brotherhood and ordered the confiscation of party’s funds. If fully or even partly implemented, this ban will create serious existential challenge for the brotherhood. Their best options at this stage are: firstly, to transform to a completely underground armed group that will fight the military regime trough armed resistance and other violent tactics. Otherwise they can simply comply with regimes’ road map and hope to find a solution at the negotiation table.

28/9/2013 Can the Russian - American plan to keep Assad from using chemical weapons work? (Spanish)

Dr. Ely Karmon

  El plan para desactivar las armas químicas sirias no es nada realista, entre otras cosas, porque son las armas “apocalípticas” del régimen de Assad para mantener la supervivencia de su propia comunidad alauita.

18/9/2013 Don't hold your breath for Syrian chemical weapons to be destroyed

Dr. Ely Karmon

 The plan to disarm Syrian chemical weapons is unrealistic, not least because they are the Assad regime's doomsday weapon to preserve the survival of its own Alawite community.
