In the middle of the current meltdown of the Middle East, we see a strange thing happening, Israel is in the middle of it, attracting friends and (former) enemies. Whatever happened in 2015, the year 2016 will bring interesting perspective to the Middle East and the world. Let’s see what the international community is doing against the chaos and the ticking time bomb, which is called the Middle East!
Basically, 1.5 million Armenians were systematically killed. The genocide was executed in two phases. 1. Armenian men were conscripted as unarmed workforce and forced to work to death. 2. The next phase was taking all Armenian women and children and force them to march in the desert without water or food. It must be noted, that not only Armenians were systematically killed, also Chechens, Turks, Russians and many others. The second phase of the genocide was witnessed by many international diplomats, and detailed documented. Everyone knew about the genocides, from all countries in Europe, Russia and the US. During the second genocide, the authorities organized ‘events’ for the invited VIPs and diplomats. Those events were mass rape, torture, and special shows of slaughter of children.
The brutal killings in Paris come on top of the downing of a Russian airliner in Sinai, the bombing of a Hezbollah stronghold in Beirut and an attack against Kurds in Ankara. About 500 people have been killed in the past few weeks, and many more injured. Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed the first three, and is suspected of the fourth. Since September 2014, ISIS has performed at least 26 attacks, resulting in more then 875 killed, 14 different countries, 8 countries are Middle Eastern (57%) and 6 western countries (43%). And those numbers are not complete; the number of people who have perished because of terror outside the borders of Syria and Iraq is much higher.
Next to the involvement of the Gulf States in the international coalition fighting ISIS, they are involved also in financing, supporting and training various Islamic extremist groups.
At this moment, the conflict is being contained in a few countries, like Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Libya.
In Lebanon there is still a government, but dominated by the Shi’ite flavored Syrian government, with Sunni and Shi’ite populations and Shi’ite extremist groups like Hezbollah, which is actively supported by Iran. Lebanon is looking wearily at the approaching ISIS and the incursions of Sunni insurgents in their territory. Iran and Saudi Arabia are providing military and financial support with the US in order to defends itself against the expected ISIS hordes.
