Hezbollah Host Rebel Conference
By Micah Halpern

Friday January 14, 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Hezbollah from Lebanon hosted a conference supporting the rebels in Saudi Arabia.
Challenge Saudi Arabia in Lebanon, when the majority of Lebanon supports Saudi Arabia and wants Saudi support to help rebuild Lebanon, seems rather counter intuitive. It takes gall.

Lebanon is in dire need of help from the Saudis. This move by Hezbollah speaks volumes.

A large part of internal Lebanese tension is due to the actions of Hezbollah.
Hezbollah’s support for the rebels in Saudi Arabia was the reason Saudi Arabia recalled its ambassador from Lebanon and banned all imports from Lebanon.

Throughout the conference, Hezbollah officials repeatedly told Saudi Arabia to stop “bullying”.

Everyone in attendance at the conference was allied with Iran. Iranian support was their common denominator.

Russia &Israel
By Micah Halpern

Thursday January 14, 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Tensions are between the United States and Russia are increasing. There are several issues of contention.

Israel has entered into the dialogue of one of those issues – Iran.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett had a substantial phone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. They spoke about Iran, especially the Iranian nuclear program and the talks taking place in Vienna about Iran’s nuke plan.

Bennett and Putin also spoke about security in the Middle East, about Syria and about Lebanon. They spoke about continued cooperation between their countries.

Bennett made it very clear to Putin that Israel was carefully watching Iran. He made it clear that no matter what is decided in Vienna, it will not stop Israel from striking Iran if they cross the line.

At the end of the call, Putin invited Bennett and his wife to visit Russia.

Taliban Visit Iran
By Micah Halpern

Wednesday January 12, 2022
I've Been Thinking:

The foreign minister of Iran met with the Taliban foreign minister in Teheran.

After the meeting Iranian leadership announced that they are not yet ready to recognize the Taliban government of Afghanistan.

In the meantime, they decided to have future meetings and, Iran announced, they will continue to send humanitarian aid to Afghanistan.

It is important to remember that Iran and Afghanistan share a border – a very long border – 921 miles. That is the distance between new York City and Minneapolis or NYC and Des Moines, Iowa. There have been border conflicts between the two since August, that is when the Taliban forced the United States to leave Afghanistan.

Iran has a long memory. They reminded the Taliban that in 1998 Taliban terrorists kidnapped and murdered Iran’s ambassador to Afghanistan in the Iranian consulate.

Iran said that the Taliban has never taken responsibility for the murder and the terror.

New Combined Variant
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday January 11, 2022
I've Been Thinking:

DeltaOcron was just discovered in Cyprus. The discovery was made by a professor of biology.

DeltaOcron, as the name implies, is the combination of two COVID-19 variants, Delta and Omicron.

This was the first discovery of this combination variant. The professor said that he found the combination variant in hospitalized patients.

He said: "We do not know if the combined strain will take over and be more common than Delta or Omicron, but for now, it seems that Omicron is the most contagious strain."

This new COVID discovery definitely needs to be watched.

Since the discovery this has been disporved as a lab mishap.

Iran Sanctions US
By Micah Halpern

Saturday January 8, 2022
I've Been Thinking:

This is funny, It is a game being played by Iran.

Iranian leadership has declared that they are imposing sanctions against 51 Americans. They claim that these 51 Americans were responsible for the assassination of Qassem Suleimani in 2020.

Iran is calling the assassination an act of terrorism and a violation of human rights.

Iran can now seize the assets of the 51 Americans – their assets in Iran. Of course, none of the 51 have any assets in Iran.

This entire episode is a symbolic attack against the United States. In reality, it means nothing.

PA Leader Son Deported from Egypt
By Micah Halpern

Friday January 7, 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Ramy Shaath, son of Palestinian leader Nabil Shaath, was deported from Egypt.

Shaath the father is a senior adviser to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. That means that his son, Ramy, is from one of the most public and entitled families in the region.

Ramy Shaath has been in pretrial confinement in Egypt since 2019, accused of having ties with the Muslim Brotherhood. That could mean that he was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood or that he was a fixer for them - connecting and making contacts to help the Muslim Brotherhood fight Israel.

Egypt has designated the Muslim Brotherhood as illegal and as a terrorist group. Part of Ramy’s agreement and deportation was that he renounce his Egyptian citizenship.

In other words, this agreement means that there was a diplomatic agreement allowing him out of detention, stopping a prosecution and facilitating a deportation. Ramy Shaath should consider himself lucky – very lucky.
