President al-Assad speaks to AFP on Syrian and regional developments – Syrian Arab News Agency

President al-Assad speaks to AFP on Syrian and regional developments – Syrian Arab News Agency | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

However, when the cause of this suffering is the terrorists, not the Russian shelling, as claimed by Western media, and when one cause for migration is the almost five-year-old embargo against the Syrian people, naturally my, and every Syrian official’s first task is to fight terrorism essentially using Syrian capabilities, but also using our friends’ support in the fight against terrorism. That’s why I say the problem of Syrian refugees abroad, as well as the problem of hunger inside Syria, as you referred to it, is a problem caused by terrorism, Western policies, and the embargo imposed on the Syrian people.

Syria's Sunnis Reject Jihadism; Many Support Assad

Syria's Sunnis Reject Jihadism; Many Support Assad | Global politics | Scoop.it
Since the start of the Russian military intervention in Syria, two arguments have been made by its critics.The first is that the Russian military intervention will ultimately fail because Russia is backing the side that is certain eventually to lose.The argument is that the Syrian government - which Russia is supporting - is a minority sectarian Alawite regime, which is heavily outnumbered by Syria’s Sunni majority, who oppose it and who will in time overwhelm it.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

In my opinion, apart of the huge contingent of foreign mercs, most of the rank and file of the terror groups are Sunni from remote and backward rural areas and their provincial towns such as Raqqa and Idlib. They are under the sway of fanatic preachers and hate the city dwellers, and they have been funded by Saudi money. This doesn't mean the majority of the mass of peasants, but a substantial group who stick to a closed life in a time warp. And yes, many of them migrated to slums in the cities, and their hatred amplified, out of their inability to catch pace with the advanced and secularized urbanites.

Conflict Zone: Why NATO War Planners Don't Care Much About Syrians

Conflict Zone: Why NATO War Planners Don't Care Much About Syrians | Global politics | Scoop.it
Why has everyone been consulted about the future of Syria, except the Syrians themselves, American investigative journalist Jeffrey St. Clair asks. The answer is obvious: Syrians don't matter for the Western political elite and its allies in the Middle East.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"Showing a stunning lack of judgment, Comandante Bernie Sanders says his Syrian strategy relies on the Saudis taking the lead in the fight against ISIS [Daesh]… Apparently Sanders skipped the briefing on how ISIS's apocalyptic ideology has been fueled by fire-breathing Wahhabi preachers financed by the Saudi royal family," Clair writes in his article for CounterPunch.org.

Erdogan’s Gamble in Syria Goes Bust

Erdogan’s Gamble in Syria Goes Bust | Global politics | Scoop.it
The relations between Washington and Ankara became strained after the US declared that it doesn’t consider the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) a terrorist organization.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"The only issue that the candidates of the upcoming 2016 US presidential elections could agree upon was the need to supply more weapons to the Syrian Kurds. At the present moment Kurds enjoy the support of the US leadership because the former play an important role in the fight against Daesh. And then President Erdogan suddenly demands that the US label Kurds as terrorists,"

Blatantly Biased German Media Coming Under Fire Like Never Before

Blatantly Biased German Media Coming Under Fire Like Never Before | Global politics | Scoop.it
Originally Appeared at Die Welt. Translated from the German by Susan Neumann.With names like "Lying Press," and "Cartel of Silence," the German public broadcasters’ legitimacy crisis is spreading. Their proximity to politics makes them vulnerable to attack. They have to do something about it while they still can.

Good, at least in Germany the media as state propaganda is being questioned, because in the rest of the West...

Has Islamism Become Europe's Fascism of the 21st Century?

Has Islamism Become Europe's Fascism of the 21st Century? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Current manifestations of Islamism in France and Germany eclipse the threat of fascism posed by nationalist movements and national security measures, according to a French political scientist.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"We are witnessing in France the emergence of a new type of fascism for which we do not have a good frame of reference. It is a fascism less political, less structured, which manifests itself mainly through individual acts, often intimidation, more or less serious microaggression, crooked looks, things which everyone knows well  can escalate into hyper-violence," Tournier said.

Resilient and Pluralistic: Why Syrian Arab Army Enjoys Public Support

Resilient and Pluralistic: Why Syrian Arab Army Enjoys Public Support | Global politics | Scoop.it
Why does the Syrian Arab Army remain the only force capable of defeating Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) and al-Qaeda in Syria? The answer is that it is resilient and pluralistic; it enjoys wide public support and curtails the spread of terrorism, Kamal Alam, a Syrian military analyst, notes.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"When the Syrian opposition talks about a future pluralistic Syria, they fail to realize that while they may theoretically be pluralists in Geneva, Washington and Vienna, their representatives on the ground are allied with the most sectarian terrorist groups the Middle East has ever seen," Kamal Alam, a Fellow at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London and a Syrian Military Analyst, notes in his article for The National Interest.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
