I have been long fascinated with what is going on in the Middle East, seeing many of the momentous events we have been witnessing these past few years as highly significant, and this particularly applies to Israel for all sorts of reasons as I try to explain in my articles. I have brought together the relevant postings, including my attempts to make sense of what is a highly complex part of the world where a lot happens. I try to reflect on this and how we do/should approach the region from a perspective of one living in the West. These things have enormous consequences for the future.
