I am honored to have Mr. Steven Sahiounie on the show today, who is based in Beirut, Lebanon and manages the website “Mideast Discourse”.
I’ve got some skin in the Arab and Muslim game. From 1980-1990, I live and worked in the Arab world and Arabic is still my favorite language to speak, read and write, although it’s more than rusty after 16 years of Chinese buried on top!
The Middle East is the pulse of the world, affecting every country across the planet on the geopolitical stage. To ignore it is to deny the future of humanity. It’s that important.
Like me, I hope you will subscribe to the Mideast Discourse’s email newsletter.

The demonisation of Turkey is itself part of the BLPM. That country has faced Kurdish separatist terrorism for decades, and Hafez earned some bad blood between both states by giving asylum to PKK fighters back in the late 20th century. The PKK, the YPG, the PYD the MEK, Abdullah Ocalan’s sect and the Barzanis, among others are also targeting Syria, Iraq, Iran, and possibly even Armenia and Azerbaijan to take valuable territory from them so a Kurdish state from the Mediterranean to the Caspian to the Indian Ocean, with the majority of the oil in that region. The destabilisation of Syria mainly had to do with this, with the Northeast disputed by the YPG and PYD, and Turkey actually set up a buffer zone to prevent them from incursioning into its own territory. Fethullah Gulen also actually has a parallel government within Turkey, so early support for ISIS may have come from his movement; and he’s enemies with both the AKP and the Republican Kemalists. Remember the coup attempt in 2016? Look into Gulen’s network of charter schools and madrassas (including in the United States). Or the Bush Administration’s (and probably ongoing) “new Middle East” project centred on Greater Kurdistan.
