MESOP NEWS TODAYS BACKGROUNDER : Divided, They May Fall – By Aron Lund
A split in Ahrar al-Sham could prove very costly to the Syrian opposition.
December 14, 2016 – عربي – Carnegie Endowment – On December 10, a group of influential figures within the Islamist group known as Ahrar al-Sham announced the creation of a new faction within the movement, to be known as Jaish al-Ahrar. The move, which threatens to escalate into a full-scale rift, caps a long internal power struggle between a Turkey-backed faction of relatively pragmatic Ahrar al-Sham members and hardline rivals who seek to take the group into the orbit of international Salafi-jihadism. A split in Ahrar al-Sham that sheds its jihadi faction has long been understood to be the only realistic way of marginalizing the Al-Qaeda-linked jihadis of Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly known as Jabhat al-Nusra), with whom Ahrar al-Sham has a close battlefield alliance. But that’s a risky gamble Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=81090
MESOP NEWS “FAREWELL UNITED STATES” – After Aleppo – It’s Now Up to Russia & Iran
Written in partnership with The Conversation: Let us be clear. The imminent victory in Syria’s largest city of Bashar al-Assad’s regime – and of its essential supporters, Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah – is built on war crimes. For months, hundreds of thousands of people in opposition-held areas of Syria’s largest city have been besieged and bombed. Thousands have been killed. Men of fighting age seized in recent days by pro-Assad forces face conscription into the Syrian military or detention and torture. Scores of residents reportedly executed in the 24 hours before a ceasefire was announced on December 13. Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=81094
MESOP MIDDLE EAST
MESOP INSIDER : Briefing 51 / Middle East & North Africa 13 December 2016
Turkey & Iran: Bitter Friends, Bosom Rivals / CRISIS GROUP ANALYSIS –
New frictions in Iraq and Syria threaten Ankara and Tehran’s usually peaceful management of their Middle East rivalries. To rebuild trust and avert open conflict, they should coordinate de-escalation, exchange intelligence and designate representatives to open a new channel between their leaders.Overview – For nearly two centuries and despite their fierce geopolitical competition from the Levant to Iraq and the Caucasus, Turkey and Iran have kept the peace between themselves, compartmentalised growing energy and commercial relations and even cooperated regionally when their interests converged. Yet today, while their economies are increasingly intertwined, a profound disagreement over core interests in Iraq and Syria is putting these two former empires on a collision course. It is not too late for a critically needed reset, but only if both recognise their fundamental interest in reversing course and taking steps that allow them to manage their differences peacefully, as they have done for almost 200 years.

MESOP NEWS „EIN GUTER ALTER LANGJÄHRIGER PERSÖNLICHER FREUND VERSTORBEN
Zum Tode des syrischen Gelehrten und Religionskritikers Sadik Al Azm
In den letzten Jahren seines Lebens konnte man den Eindruck gewinnen, als gälten die zahlreichen Würdigungen und Ehrungen, die Sadik Al Azm vor allem im Westen zu-kamen, in erster Linie seiner politischen Haltung und nicht so sehr seinem wissenschaftlichen Werk. Aber Al Azm war selbst stets jemand gewesen, der den öffentlichen Raum und die öffentliche Wirkung suchte. So hatte die Karriere des aus einer bekannten syrischen Familie stammenden Denkers auch begonnen, nicht in seiner Heimatstadt Damaskus, sondern im weltoffenen Beirut, neben Kairo dem Zentrum intellektueller Debatten in der arabischen Welt der fünfziger und sechziger Jahre.
