Few assessments of Syria’s would-be nuclear program to date have mentioned the links with Iran or Pakistan or explored their deep relationships with North Korea.

Australian LaRouchites get aggressive in shilling for the Chinese Communist Party

September 7, 2022 | Judy Maynard

Days before the UN released the latest report to condemn the Chinese Government for its human rights abuses of the Uyghur people, a senior official of a conspiracy-toting, pro-China, Australian political party was accused of harassing and intimidating a prominent local critic of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

UNIFIL must be reformed or replaced

September 2, 2022 | Ran Porat

In its ineptitude, UNIFIL is paradoxically shielding Hezbollah and enables the terrorist organisation to increase its dangerous capabilities in Lebanon away from the world’s attention.

Empowering Russia’s allies is not the answer to the energy crisis

August 31, 2022 | Oved Lobel

What seems like realpolitik is therefore counterproductive. There is simply no way to compartmentalise these countries; the energy networks are too intertwined. Easing pressure on any of them will result in empowering all of them.

Israel is increasingly part of a regional cold war against an Iran-Russia-China axis

August 26, 2022 | Ran Porat

What Russia’s critical attitude toward Israel’s efforts to undermine the PIJ’s capabilities reflects is that the clash in Gaza was not merely a local dispute.

Bolton and Pompeo assassination plot reveals Iran’s malign intentions – and poor capabilities

August 12, 2022 | Oved Lobel

Rather than aiming for sophisticated plots, the exposed plots indicate that the IRGC-QF and MOIS seem to be throwing as many impromptu plots at the wall as they can to see if any stick.

Iran’s nuclear weapons threats are actually a sign of weakness

August 5, 2022 | Ran Porat

Talks between Iran and the other signatories of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) nuclear deal resumed in Vienna on August 4, in a last-ditch attempt to restore that flawed agreement. Yet in recent weeks, top Iranian officials have been trying to raise the stakes, trumpeting the message that they are just one decision away from possessing nuclear weapons.

The relationship between Zawahiri’s pre-al-Qaeda Egyptian Islamic Jihad and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), including its Lebanese branch Hezbollah, began as early as 1991, eventually evolving into a deep partnership between al-Qaeda and Tehran.
