Former U.S. Congresswoman to ST: Trump was ultimately forced to state publicly that he is not interested in war against Iran

Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney believes that the Israel-firsters burrowed into the US Deep State and federal bureaucracy are pre-positioning US troops in the Arabian Gulf to become sitting ducks for a false flag attack of some kind that then "forces" retaliation.

She told the Syriatimes e-newspaper that the passage of time indicates that National Security Advisor Bolton is a manifestation of the exigencies of domestic U.S. politics, but does not share Trump's goals.  

“The fact that Trump intervened with one sentence to tamp down the idea that war against Iran was imminent should speak volumes to those who understand that Trump is in no position to speak at all (when he disagrees with what I call President Bolton, who, in my opinion, is Netanyahu's--hence, the Israel-Firsters' go-to man in the White House),” McKinney said.

She stressed that Trump was ultimately forced to state publicly that he is not interested in war against Iran. 

“Peaceniks voted for Trump or abstained and the last thing he wants is to betray that part of his base and the standersby who are looking on quietly from the sidelines,” the international peace activist added.

Sen. Richard Black: I do not want more Americans dying for Saudi Arabia

Senator of Virginia, Richard H. Black has appealed to the U.S. president Donald Trump to end wars of regime change and not to shed more blood to advance the foreign policy of the brutal Saudi dictatorship.

In a letter he sent to President Trump -on May 22, 2019- regarding war against Iran, the senator said: “It was Saudis—not Iranians—who dispatched 19 al Qaeda terrorists to crash jets into the Pentagon and Twin Towers on 9-11. I do not want more Americans dying for Saudi Arabia; 3000 already paid that price on 9-11. We must not shed more blood to advance the foreign policy of the brutal Saudi dictatorship.”

British Anglican priest to ST: ‘sectarianism’ is an inadequate term to describe the ancient complex communal plurality of Syrian society

British Anglican priest has affirmed that ‘sectarianism’ is an inadequate term to describe the ancient complex communal plurality of Syrian society; that Eastern Christian theological and spiritual frameworks and traditions have much to offer in the field of interreligious dialogue.

He also stressed that both Christianity and Islam desperately need to find a way, in the face of the rise of extremist ideologies, of engaging with contemporary social, political and religious dynamics in order to ensure that communal diversity are embraced and that plural ‘religious space’ is respected. 

Rev. Andrew Ashdown presented the above mentioned ideas during a lecture he gave at an international conference held from 27-29 May, 2019 in Portorož , Slovenia, to discuss new philosophical and theological foundations for Christian-Muslim dialogue.
