Today, as Syria no longer capably functions as a sovereign state, a strong Syrian president with firm control over the state is a vital interest for Israel.  Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=86035

MESOP MIDDLE EAST : TRUMP WILL FIND AN ARAB NATION RISING TO CONFRONT IRAN – By Anwar Eshki

DONALD TRUMP’S STRATEGIC IDEA OF A SUNNI ARAB & ISRAEL NATO

Fikra Forum  – May 22, 2017 –  Anwar Eshki, a retired general in the Saudi military, holds a master’s degree in strategic studies and a doctorate in law from Golden Gate Bridge University.

Regional states aspire toward a Western-assisted “Arab NATO” to provide unity of purpose in dealing with a host of domestic and external challenges, particularly those emanating from Iran.When President Trump traveled to Saudi Arabia last weekend, he was addressing not just his Saudi hosts but also an ad hoc Arab and Islamic summit conference. Until recently, the Arab world was undergoing a violent crisis inside its own countries, but today it is in a crisis of existence against Iran. To address this crisis, the United States should understand the theory of “central land”; this means that those who control the Middle East can control the world’s economy. Besides the Arab states, the greater Middle East includes Iran, Turkey, and Israel. Each of those three nations has its plan for controlling the entire Middle East, while the Arab world is dormant.
