ANALYSIS: The real new Middle East reality

Postby Ready1 on Fri Oct 02, 2020 8:00 am

The Middle East has undergone a massive realignment, dividing the region up into two camps - one allied with the West, the other led by Iran

After the surprising peace deal between Israel and the Arab Gulf states United Arab Emirates and Bahrain one could say that the Middle East is now divided in two large competing blocks.

One block is consisting of mainly Sunni Arab states together with the Jewish state and is led by Saudi Arabia, Israel and Egypt while the other block consists of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and to a lesser degree Turkey that is increasingly cooperating with Iran despite the fact that Turkey is led by the Sunni Islamist regime of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Iran by a Shiite clerical regime.

Both Turkey and Iran have regional aspirations and seek to dominate the Middle East while Iran is also trying to expand its influence elsewhere in the world as well in countries such as Afghanistan and even in southern America where it helps Venezuela to form a force similar to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

All this is meant to confront the ‘great Satan’ the United States and the ‘little Satan’ Israel and to realize the goal of the 1979 Islamic Revolution: turning the world into one big Islamic Imperium.
Just observing.
