A Recommended Reading: An Article From The Atlantic on New Pan-Arabianism (falling short of claiming, as I have been, of Pan-islamism)

Watch for the connotation of ‘UMA’ (United Magrheb Arabs), which is actually based on the phonetic ‘desirability’ of Ummah, a Moslem word for ‘Islamic Poeple and race’, similar to Germanic Kultur-weltanschauung. In short, the desirability is for gradual ‘expansive’ re-Islamicisiation of Islamic World (The Khilafah, or Caliphate).

The Atltantic has also started the ‘Iran War Clock’, a sort of countdown to the Iranian War (As I have had for few months now, and stopped, after realising, there is never going to be any war, simple; (a) the Russians and Chinese will never allow it; (b) Iran, herself will make a chaotic order in the region and third-world; (c) US not really interesting in confronting neither of aforementioned players, as she is slowly coming, at last, to terms with her ‘ageing power’, and she is just looking toward ‘home-ward retirement’, and brokering role (of old sagacious impartial counselor); and (d) the barking little actor in the region, just verified all these, and some more complicated arithemtic, not looking good for war with Iran at the present or future, Iran is actually well prepared).

Anyway, the Magazine’s countdown, states ‘middle east experts’, and there is only one name on the list of nativeness (arabic, moslem), the rest of the list is of ‘allies’, with very ‘much shared interest and discoursive position’. The magazine is slowly going down, haha.

Anyhoo, here is some few of the usual headlines, might be of interest (it is always to me);
