Friday 25 September 2020
Alwaght- In early 2016, the main Republican nominee delivered a shocking speech at a small Christian college in Sioux Center, Iowa. He was formerly recognized as a television star and pro-business capitalist known for his heinous acts of corruption and gambling. Donald Trump, who had not yet been elected as the 45th president of the United States, furiously said: “I will tell you, Christianity is under tremendous siege, whether we want to talk about it or we don’t want to talk about it.” During this period, Trump complained via populist slogans about why Christians, as the majority of society, do not hold political leadership of the country, and by ranting such slogans, he amused the religious population.

All in Hariri’s Favor; Good Fortune or a Plot?

Wednesday 14 October 2020
Alwaght- The explosion in Beirut, like a deafening slap in the face of the country’s political upheaval, has weighed heavily on the country which has been in crisis for years. The resignation of the new government of Hassan Diab, the beginning of a new round of conflict between the political groups of the country over the formation of the cabinet, the downturn of the economic outlook and the intensification of foreign interventions that have not yet fully revealed their effects has come to Lebanon becoming a country with multiple identities causing disagreements towards its national interests. Lebanon’s historical past has shown that the grand deal for the new engineering of power in its identity mosaic has inevitably crossed the crisis line, such as The Taif Agreement in the 1990s to shape the government after a bloody 15-year civil war, or the assassination of Rafiq Hariri in 2006 which led to the Syrian army departing the country. The discussion that can be focused on regarding the Beirut port explosion can be noted as unexplained and suspicious due to questions of the case remaining unanswered, and the existence of signs of a possible sabotage, can be defined to such an extent that actors behind the scenes have been involved in the employment of this devastating tragedy.

UAE at Heart of US Regional Strategy in Persian Gulf

Friday 16 October 2020
Alwaght- Based on repeated claims by US and Israeli officials, the plan to normalize relations with the Zionist regime was supposed to continue rapidly and involve a large majority of the Arab world, however only UAE and Bahrain have normalized relations with Israel. No other Arab government has got involved in the normalization process, and so far it has come to an end, despite all the publicity that had been done in regard of it. This can be clearly seen from Trump’s appeal to the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi in order to persuade other Arab countries to normalize relations with the Israeli regime.
