Lift Sanctions against SyriaThis appeal comes from my friend, Dr Chandra Muzaffar, the president of the International Movement for a Just World based in Kuala Lumper, Malaysia.

Are the Saudis really going to support Syria?!I had resigned myself to never having a nice word to say about the house of Saud. Even so, the recent initiatives taken by the Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) seem to be genuinely progressive. He even seems to be reaching out to Syria! According to Steven Sahiounie, whose article appears below, MBS is
Israel destroys Damascus International Airport. Why is there no international outcry?How is that the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) can launch a major attack on a International Airport – a domestic airport – and this doesn’t cause shock and horror around the world?

SYRIA : THE PRICE OF RESISTANCEI commend to you this excellent article by my friend, Dr Chandra Muzaffar – the president of the International Movement for a Just World (JUST) and a thoroughly decent human being.

I was in Damascus with a member of the Syrian cabinet (I won’t say who) shortly after Trump was elected. He said, “Obama is the worst we have

Syrian crisis requires friendship, not aggression
The following article was officially co-authored by Professor Tim Anderson and myself (though it was largely Tim’s work with some tweaking from me). Tim and I were together in Syria for the latter part of July though we had come with slightly … Continue reading

Declassified documents expose US support for ISIS and nobody cares!
The Western narrative used to justify the destruction of Syria looks increasingly brittle and self-contradictory as it evolves with time.

Understanding the war in Syria – a sketch video
This is an engaging attempt to explain the violence in Syria, if a little simplistic. I would question it at two points. Firstly, I’m not convinced that the Syrian war ever did start as a purely democratic uprising. I suspect … Continue reading

At last Geneva II is underway – not in ideal circumstances and not with everybody in attendance, but underway nonetheless. Most reports on the conference thus far have been stressing the anger and acrimony being displayed by speakers. This is … Continue reading

World Council of Churches calls for an end to violence in Syria
It is a shame that the church has no formal involvement in Geneva II. We take it for granted that the big decisions about Syria’s future are going to be made by the political power-players – most specifically by the … Continue reading
