The Palestinian Obsession Exposed

President Obama assumes that the Palestinian issue is a root cause of Mid-East turbulence, the crown jewel of Arab policy-making and the crux of the Arab-Israeli conflict. He maintains that the resolution of the Palestinian issue would moderate the Mid-East, facilitating the formation of a US-Arab coalition against Iran. On September 21, 2011, he proclaimed at the UN General Assembly: "There is one issue that stands as… a test for American foreign policy and that is the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians."

Irrespective of the Palestinian issue, 2011 has catapulted the anti-Western trans-national Muslim Brotherhood - the Big Brother of Hamas terrorists - to political prominence in Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and soon in Syria, Jordan and other Arab countries. The rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, and other Islamic parties, is a derivative of the 1,400 year old supremacy of Islam in the educational, social and political sectors in every Arab country.

Regardless of Israel's policies and existence, Iran is pursuing nuclear capabilities and confronting the US, NATO and Saudi Arabia, in order to advance its megalomaniac aspirations in the Persian Gulf, the Mideast, the Muslim world, Latin America and the world at-large.

Notwithstanding the Palestinian issue, the Saudi-Yemen border region, Bahrain and the Persian Gulf are boiling; intra-Muslim terrorism proliferates; post-Mubarak Egypt trends towards Turkey's or Iran's anti-US path; Syria and Lebanon constitute domestic, intra-Muslim and intra-Arab battlegrounds; Turkey switched from NATO-oriented to Islam-oriented policies, aspiring to reclaim Islamic hegemony, courting Russia and Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas; Russia and China penetrate deeper into the Mid-East; US-evacuated Iraq could become an active volcano, whose lava could consume Jordan, Kuwait and the Gulf region....
