  • Al-Sadr in Jidda: Are Saudis looking for channel to Iran, or anti-Iran Client?
    • "In fact, despite his Shiite fundamentalism, al-Sadr is politically even-handed in ways that might appeal to Riyadh. Although Western analysts have repeatedly pegged him wrongly as a cat’s paw of Iran, in fact al-Sadr is an Iraqi nativist whose movement resents the influence of Iran on Iraqi Shiism. "

      "Last March, al-Sadr called for formal peace talks between Saudi Arabia and Iran, since those two countries are on all but a war footing. Al-Sadr argues that some face to face summits among leaders of the two countries could tamp down sectarian tensions and lead to a new era of good feeling in the Middle East."

      Very useful insights and a welcome positive note.

  • Is Trump right to doubt that Islam is a Religion?
    • " The US rampaged around the Middle East undermining Arab secularism all through the Cold War." I would enjoy a whole article elaborating this idea. Thank you for your work!
