The US/NATO confrontation with Russia is dangerous

TFF LiveApril 12, 2017 The secretaries of state, Tillerson and Lavrov meet today. We seem to enter a stage of what must appropriately be perceived as a frosty new Cold War.

Turkey’s coup – Another example of the West’s disintegration

Here is my take on the July 15 coup in Turkey - why it happened the way it did and what is the least unlikely hypothesis - followed by some examples of regional and international consequences this coup is bound to have. And it ends: NATO comes across as a very tired alliance that should [...]

Don’t underestimate Donald Trump

Don't underestimate him, count him out or think he is crazy.

Nazi-Islamisme Рsom om ordet islamisme ikke var tilstrækkeligt modbydeligt

Hvor lavt kan danske politikere synke etisk og intellektuelt? Hvis der fandtes en t√•beparagraf ville d'herrer Pape og Khader blive d√łmt p√• den - det er klart efter deres indl√¶g i Aarhus Stiftstidende. Islamisme er et modbydeligt ord - fordi det direkte sammenk√¶der en religions navns med terrorisme hvilket f.eks. ikke er tilf√¶ldet med ordet [...]

Yet another attack by Zionists on academic freedom

Medialens tells us that the Zionist lobby does it again! Are we surprised?Oh yes, when was it last all Western leaders praised freedom of expression by walking through Paris? Will even one of them now stand up and demand that this conference be held anyhow? What is it the West's academic community boats about in [...]

Isn’t it time to boycott pro-Zionist media?

Listen very carefully to the eloquent PM Netanyahu here again giving it full blast thanks to CNN in an interview in which he (again) says nothing new.Why - just why - is his views given coverage again and again and again in Western media? Does the Iranian or other P5+1 get anywhere near the same [...]

Like we use Islamism – why not USism

War with Iran is probably our best option - The Washington PostBy Joshua Muravchik - one of the extremist neo-cons influencing U.S. foreign policy. Hardly one argument backed up by facts here. The professor advocates a series of violations of international law. He thinks it is fine to kill people and cause regime change. Two [...]

Politiken er ikke så god til det dér med Israel

Under menuen "Udland" er det eneste, jeg finder i den den 9.marts, nedenst√•ende artikel. Politikens online-l√¶sere ser intet om den massive kritik Netanyahus tale blev m√łdt med - i USA, i Israel-venlige kredse, p√• j√łdiske siter, og i israeliske aviser og TV - eller tidl Mossad-chefers s√łnderlemmende kritik af ham.De ser ikke Uri Avnery og [...]

About the nuclear negotiations with Iran

Iran's FM Zarif: "Any deal with P5 1 would cover all issues"I agree with the foreign minister and point out how a-symmetric this conflict is. I believe also that historic mistrust should have been dealt with before technicalitites.Then I ask how on earth it could be better for Israel if there is no deal than [...]

Help Netanyahu to come to his senses

“We Are All Charlie” – but is that story so simple?

Eleven points as a reflection on the terror in Paris and - not the least - the reactions to it*: 1. What was this an attack on?Was that attack an attack on freedom of speech as such, on democracy, even on the whole Western culture and lifestyle, as was maintained throughout? Or was it, more [...]
