Changes in the MidEast
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday November 16, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

I am watching serious changes take place in the Middle East.
Syria had been ostracized for the past decade, but slowly, slowly, we are seeing the Syrians re-enter the regional community. And they are doing it by rejecting Iran.

The heads of intelligence from Syria and Saudi Arabia recently met in Egypt. It is important to understand that intel chiefs from these countries are part of the highest level of leaders in each country.

Egyptian media reported that Husam Muhammad Louka, head of the Syrian Intelligence Directorate, met with Khalid al Humaidan, the head of Saudi Arabia’s General Intelligence.

The meeting took place on the sidelines of a conference of Arab intelligence leaders at the Arab Intelligence Forum. Meetings like this are always the first steps in the process normalization.

It’s still early in the process. Many things can go wrong. But this is definitely progress and it is moving in the right direction.

The big question now is whether other issues will move the partners closer - or keep them apart.
