Changes in Middle Eastern Geopolitics

Arabs and Israelis have gone to war several times since 1948, year of Israel's creation. The recurrence of armed conflicts and the so-called Palestinian Question maintained the rivalry between them as the main geopolitical issue in the Middle East in the second half of the century 20 and at the beginning of this century 21. However, Recent events indicate that this situation is beginning to change. Within about a month, in agreements brokered by the US government, who were baptized “Abraham's Accords”, the governments of Israel, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have signed treaties to normalize diplomatic relations between the two Arab countries and Israel. The two nations came together, in this way, to the group that until then was composed of only two other countries: Egypt and Jordan ...

Lebanon tragedy

Photo of the port of Beirut after the explosion 5/8/2020 (AP Photo / Hussein Malla) The violent explosion in the port of Beirut caused more than two hundred deaths and thousands of injuries. A região do entorno do porto ficou completamente destruída, mas os efeitos da onda de choque causaram estragos mesmo a dezenas de quilômetros do epicentro. Após um momento de perplexidade pela gravidade do ocorrido, a cidade foi tomada por protestos nos quais a população, enfurecida com as autoridades, acusadas de negligência, exigia a renúncia do Primeiro Ministro Hassan Diab, o que acabou ocorrendo no último dia 10 of August, only 6 dias após a tragédia. A fúria da população se explica. After all, tudo indica que a causa da explosão tenha sido a combustão de 2.750 ton de nitrato de amônio, armaze...

The Jewish people and their plate tectonics

Gaza Strip, Israel “These people are actively involved, individually, in universal history. I don't understand how they can take it. ” Saul Bellow (1915- 2005 ) “Jerusalem Round trip” Since the beginning of the Christian era, and even before, the leaders of the Jewish people have sought to unite territory and people in the same geographical place and for decades found the long-dreamed territory, but it was in one of the most explosive regions of the land — Palestine. Since the creation of the State of Israel in 1948, a big and endless conflict rages in the Middle East causing discomfort, insecurity and war on the ground and in the world. I looked in geology for the image I need: nothing else is Arab-Israeli conflict that the result of friction between the edges of two political tectonic plates- the eastern plate and ...

A anti política externa de Bolsonaro

A política externa não é comumente chamada de Política de Estado à toa. Mais do que expressar os anseios mais imediatos do presidente, ela se foca nos interesses mais profundos do país. Trata-se de um complexo intrincado de ações e compromissos, delicadamente construídos ao longo do tempo. O governo Bolsonaro, pelo visto com o apoio explícito do chanceler Ernesto Araujo, está ignorando essa ideia e tratando a política externa como uma plataforma político-ideológica. Só que, in this case, as consequências não esperam. No início do governo o presidente Bolsonaro declarou que mudaria a embaixada brasileira para Jerusalém. Essa foi uma forma de mostrar o alinhamento internacional com os Estados Unidos, mas apenas parece ter considerado essa agenda, ignorando as demais consequências. No fi...

Israel, between Zionism and Imperialism

Since the beginning of the year, Syria has been the country hardest hit by the Israeli military escalation, having several cities hit, as well as Syrian military and infrastructure facilities, causing the death of hundreds of people and generating great economic losses. These Israeli military actions coincide with the Syrian army's advance to regain control of the country, where he has achieved great victories. Israeli attacks in flagrant violation of Syrian sovereignty, have Tel Aviv’s justification for fighting Iranian bases in Syrian territory that threaten their security. (more…)
