Is Iran Closer to Avenging the Murder of Its Two Prominent Leaders?
Askiah Adam | JUST – TRANSCEND Media Service, 28 Dec 2020

24 Dec 2020 – Tehran has taken every opportunity to demonstrate its scientific and technological skills but unwilling to exploit any of it needlessly. It is not a Third World country struggling to develop. It is a major military power of West Asia. It builds missiles, a prowess the US is trying to end. The late Fakhrizadeh has the distinction of being compared to Oppenheimer the father of the nuclear bomb. It is a civilisation of some five thousand years.

Is Normalization with Israel without a Resolution for Palestine Justifiable?
Askiah Adam | JUST – TRANSCEND Media Service, 16 Nov 2020

10 Nov 2020 – Zionism is a strange political beast. Some argue that it is anti-Semitic and white supremacist. Others claim that it is Jewish supremacist. And then there is Christian Zionism. But many of the early leaders of Israel were atheists or agnostics. The certainty is that Zionist Tel Aviv practices apartheid having declared Israel a Jewish state. Palestinians, the indigenous people, are second class citizens.

The Palestinian Struggle Betrayed
Askiah Adam | JUST – TRANSCEND Media Service, 19 Oct 2020

14 Oct 2020 – The decline of the American Empire is too naked to refute. Millions are unemployed. The economy is in shambles. More than 200,000 Americans are dead and businesses are failing. The United States is in socio-political chaos and unrest is widespread. Are the Palestinians the attempted sacrifice at the altar of a Trump re-election trickery?

Askiah Adam | JUST – TRANSCEND Media Service, 25 May 2020

22 May 2020 – Few can deny that a perfect storm is brewing and the early foundations for war are being set up by the obvious protagonists. That China has cancelled the dollar peg in its stock exchange transactions opting for the Chinese Yuan is an ominous sign. Washington, meanwhile, is fast creating an anti-China sentiment among its population, blaming China for what President Trump calls the “Wuhan virus” aka Covid-19.

Askiah Adam | JUST – TRANSCEND Media Service, 9 Mar 2020

2 Mar 2020 – Are the powers, NATO et al., edging towards a World War? One does get the impression that at this time the US and its NATO allies are erring towards the belief that they can win such a war.

Trump Attempting to Consolidate the Balfour Declaration
Askiah Adam | JUST – TRANSCEND Media Service, 10 Feb 2020

3 Feb 2020 – That Palestinians are already protesting against the Vision is a clear signal that the people are far from enthusiastic despite the attempt to bribe them with US$50 billion over ten years to develop the Palestinian economy and rebuild its infrastructure destroyed by Israeli bombing. One million jobs are promised. Iran is clearly against it. Russia’s negative attitude to Trump’s deal is no secret.

UN To Resolve the Rohingya Humanitarian Crisis
Askiah Adam | JUST – TRANSCEND Media Service, 9 Dec 2019

3 Dec 2019 – Can the UN end this humanitarian crisis now that the tragedy is squarely on the lap of this supranational organisation intended to prevent genocides and other crimes against humanity? The example of Palestine tells us to temper our optimism. Evidence is aplenty but if in seven decades the genocide of the Palestinians has been allowed to play out in public, can we expect any better for the Rohingyas?

Has India Abandoned Palestine?
Askiah Adam – TRANSCEND Media Service, 24 Jun 2019

22 Jun 2019 – India has recently voted in support of Israel at the UN for the first time in its post-independence history to deny a Palestinian non-governmental organisation, the Shahed, an observer status. To many this may appear innocuous.

Anti-Semitism and “The Israel Project”
Askiah Adam – TRANSCEND Media Service, 25 Mar 2019

19 Mar 2019 – Israel is off-limits. The criminalisation of anti-Semitism means nothing short of this. In fact, France’s President Macron says anti-Zionism is a form of anti-Semitism and both are now legally defined as “hate crimes”. Will this be a global precursor? Will the world uphold such a sweeping, broad legal definition that has the potential to embrace the inhumanity and egregious acts of such nations as Israel, now an apartheid Jewish state?

Venezuela: Beyond Regime Change and Oil
Askiah Adam – TRANSCEND Media Service, 4 Mar 2019

26 Feb 2019 – The world is unevenly split over Venezuela. The Non-Aligned Movement, accounting for 120 countries “reiterates its firm support” of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in line with the Bandung principles. Russia and China declared their pro-Maduro stand from the word go. The UN refuses to entertain Guido. Recently, some 50 UN envoys have stood in solidarity with Venezuela determined to protect the UN Charter and International Law. This leaves only the usual lapdogs standing with Washington.

Askiah Adam – TRANSCEND Media Service, 21 Jan 2019

18 Jan 2019 – Another US regime change undertaking is about to begin. Venezuela and its Bolivarian socialist revolution has long irked the United States. A nuclear superpower going rogue is a frightening spectacle. What more when its chief executive appears to be finding it near impossible to assert his authority. Is the world helpless to defend itself against such unpredictable volatility?

Askiah Adam – TRANSCEND Media Service, 5 Nov 2018

3 Nov 2018 – Puzzling is the furore caused in Washington and many European capitals kept on the boil by mainstream media suggesting that this incident will not go away without costing Saudi Arabia dear.

Askiah Adam – TRANSCEND Media Service, 8 Oct 2018

6 Oct 2018 – There is then no room for doubt that Russia’s promise to bolster the security of her interests in Syria is about accomplishing a no-fly zone over most of Syria, if not all of it.

Can Russia’s IL-20 Be the Beginning of the End for Israeli Hubris?
Askiah Adam – TRANSCEND Media Service, 24 Sep 2018

22 Sep 2018 – None of us would be cheering on a war that could easily be the absolutely final one if President Putin had not defused the situation while clearly signalling that he holds Israel accountable for downing the Russian IL-20 reconnaissance aircraft even though it was shot down by a Syrian missile.

Trade Wars: Is There an Off-Ramp?
Askiah Adam – TRANSCEND Media Service, 27 Aug 2018

North Korea: What Price Peace?
Askiah Adam – TRANSCEND Media Service, 25 Jun 2018

19 Jun 2018 – The United States foreign policy is one of perpetual war. Where its soldiers are not on the ground, proxy armies are used to destabilise countries, as in Libya and Syria. To be wholeheartedly optimistic about Korea is difficult, if not impossible especially when NATO military forces are building up along the Russia-Europe border, replete with military exercises which grow in intensity with every passing year.

70 Years Ago Today Palestine Was Stolen
Askiah Adam – TRANSCEND Media Service, 21 May 2018

15 May 2018 – NAKBA or CATASTROPHE DAY is being remembered today in Palestine. The March of Return, which has been going on for over a month, culminates in its commemoration. The Nakba began when Palestinians were robbed of their homeland; when the genocide began; and, will not stop until the land is ethnically cleansed by the thieving multi-national Zionists ensconced in Tel Aviv.

Panmunjom Declaration: A Glimmer of Hope
Askiah Adam – TRANSCEND Media Service, 30 Apr 2018

28 Apr 2018 – Taken pleasantly by surprise, not least because of the speed at which the joint Panmunjom Declaration has materialised, the world cannot but rejoice. Both leaders of North and South Korea have planted a tree of peace, shook hands and walked together, at one point hand in hand. Indeed, there is cause for optimism this time around and that both Washington and Beijing may yet endorse the Declaration.

Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel
Askiah Adam | International Movement for a JUST World – TRANSCEND Media Service, 9 Apr 2018

5 Apr 2018 – Palestine, that enclave of humanity occupied, brutalised and without any form of military defence against aggressors is conveniently perceived as a threat by the Jewish state, Israel, the undeclared, sole nuclear power in West Asia and North Africa. This occupying power is a usurper legitimised by Britain and unconditionally supported and armed by the USA.
