The Middle East: Who says popular quest for change has been quelled?

By James M. Dorsey

A series of recent mass protests in several Arab countries have called into question suggestions that civil wars, brutal crackdowns and military coups and interventions have quelled popular willingness to stand up for rights in the Middle East. The protests, although focussed on specific social and economic demands, fundamentally have the same objectives as popular revolts four years ago that toppled four autocrats: dignity, social justice and greater…

The Middle East and North Africa: Adapting to a New Paradigm

By James M. Dorsey


The military strategies of the United States and its regional allies focused on bombing campaigns, support for local militias, and inherently weak military forces to fight potential ground battles, have failed to defeat rebel forces in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Libya. Calls for the introduction of ground forces against Islamic State (IS), the jihadist group that controls a swathe of Syria and Iraq, and the Houthis in Yemen, or pumping up the number of US…

Druze Mount next flashpoint in Syrian conflict: Implications for Israel

By James M. Dorsey

This month’s killing of 23 Druze clan members by Jabhat Al Nusra jihadists has made Syrian Druze a potential flashpoint in a proxy war between Saudi Arabia, Iran and Israel. As rebel forces advance towards the mountainous Druze stronghold in Idlib province, Israel has to decide whether it should intervene in the Syrian civil war by arming the Druze while Saudi Arabia is faced with the choice between realpolitik and its religious doctrine which views the Druze as…

Media fuel misperceptions about Lebanon

By Steven Youngblood

Director, Center for Global Peace Journalism

(Beirut, Lebanon)--When I told my friends, family, and colleagues that I was heading to Beirut, Lebanon, the reaction was shock and horror. How could I go to such an unstable, dangerous place?

I must admit to some pre-departure trepidation myself, given the reputation of Lebanon and Beirut in particular.

Now, after having spent about two weeks here, I am ashamed at my hesitation in coming… Continue

Syria fuels schism between Sunnis and Shiites

Sunday, August 14, 2011

By James M. Dorsey

The struggle for greater political freedom in Syria is emerging as a lightning rod for a far greater schism in the Middle East and North Africa – one that is more worrisome and that threatens to divide the region and several of its societies not only along political lines but also along sectarian lines.

A majority of Arab states led by Saudi Arabia have in the last week for the first time…
