בישראל מאוכזבים מארהב: היועץ לביטחון לאומי ייצא לביקור בבית הלבן
"כשראינו את ההסכם הזה שאלנו, איפה ארה"ב?", תהה גורם בכיר, "אין ארה"ב, היא הפכה לשמועה במזרח התיכון". עוד נטען, כי האמריקנים הבטיחו בשיחות עמם, כי בשלב מאוחר יותר, כחלק מתהליך מדיני כולל לסיום מלחמת האזרחים הסורית, ניתן יהיה להרחיק את האיראנים עוד יותר מהגבול הישראלי.

הבכירים הישראלים טענו אם זאת, כי הם לא תולים תקוות בהבטחות הללו. לדבריהם הנחמה היחידה היא שחרף העובדה שהאמריקנים לא רוצים לנקוט בפעולות בשטח בעצמם, הם נותנים "אור ירוק" לישראל להמשיך בתקיפות בסוריה נגד חיזבאללה והאיראנים. "אין ברירה, נצטרך לטפל במצב בעצמנו", טוענים בישראל.

WTF happened in Lebanon and ISIS update - Tommy Vietor's foreign affairs podcast - Crooked Media - Nov 17 2017
With Rob Malley - Crisis Group - was ISIS lead on Obama NSC - he arrived in Beirut, scheduled to meet Hariri, just as Hariri resigned on Saudi TV. The stunt has succeeded in producing the miracle of all parties in Lebanon agreeing on something - that it was effectively a hostage situation and they want their Prime Minister back. The discussion mostly deals with Saudi screwing stuff up and MBS consistently taking counterproductive steps that blow up in his face, the problems when Trump is seen by the region as giving MBS a blank check, and the clean up efforts required, which the Trump Admin isn't (yet?) organized to do consistently. The only winner is Iran, which just has to sit back quietly and get out the popcorn. Interesting discussion of how the Obama administration found it difficult to stay out of supporting Saudis re Yemen - timing with Iran nuclear talks was key consideration in limiting perceived options.

ברוסיה הבהירו לישראל: המרחק של האיראנים מהגבול - זמני - וואלה! חדשות
בתחילה ביקשה ישראל מהמעצמות פרוז מוחלט של סוריה מהאיראנים ונענתה בשלילה. לאחר מכן הועברה דרישה לפרז שטח בטווח של 40 ק"מ מהגבול, ולבסוף נקבע תחום מפורז של חמישה עד שבעה ק"מ בלבד.

לוואלה! NEWS נודע כי הרוסים אמרו בשיחות מקצועיות לישראלים כי מדובר בהחלטה זמנית והיא עשויה להשתנות. האמריקנים מצדם העבירו מסר תמוה ולפיו מדובר ב"צעד שנועד למנוע שפיכות דמים".

שני אירועים, על פי פרסומים זרים, מסמלים את האתגר המתהווה של מערכת הביטחון. הראשון התרחש בספטמבר השנה. על פי הפרסומים, חיל האוויר הישראלי תקף מתחם בפרבר של מחוז חמה בסוריה ששימש מרכז לפיתוח טילים ואמצעי לחימה כימיים עבור איראן וחיזבאללה. האירוע השני, חשיפה של רשת BBC לפני ימים אחדים של תצלומי לוויין שבהם נראה לדברי גורמי מודיעין מערביים בסיס קבע איראני סמוך לדמשק ובמרחק של 50 ק"מ מרמת הגולן.

לפי הערכות מומחים מדובר ביותר מ-20 מבנים שבהם ניתן לאכלס מאות אנשי מליציות שיעיות בפיקוד איראני, מודל איראני שמבשר רעות.

When was wine discovered? Researchers find new details about time and place of origin
A team of Gadachrili Gora Regional Archaeological Project Expedition (GRAPE), a joint undertaking between the University of Toronto and the Georgian National Museum found pottery fragments of ceramic jars at two early Ceramic Neolithic sites (6000-4500 BC), nearly 50 kilometres south of the modern capital of Tbilisi.It was earlier thought that wine was first manufactured during 5400-5000 BC in the Zagros Mountains of Iran.A chemical analysis of the residue of the excavated (Neolithic)jars revealed that it contains tartaric acid, the fingerprint compound for grape and wine as well as three associated organic acids - malic, succinic and citric. "The domesticated version of the fruit has more than 10,000 varieties of table and wine grapes worldwide. Georgia is home to over 500 varieties of wine alone..there was an abundance of Eurasian grapevine Vitis vinifera around the excavation sites, much like wine producing area of France and Italy today.The Neolithic period was the time when humans started domesticating plants and animals, started farming and developed the techniques of pottery making and weaving..one of the primary adaptations of the Neolithic way of life, as it spread to Caucasia (the area between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea), was viniculture.. drinking and offering wine became part of every aspect of life including medical practice, special celebrations, birth to death, everyday meals."The Eurasian grapevine that now accounts for 99.9 percent of the wine made in the world today, has its roots in Caucasia,

A Huthi Missile, a Saudi Purge and a Lebanese Resignation Shake the Middle East | Crisis Group
Moreover, Israel specifically marked provision of high-precision long-range missiles to Hizbollah as a red line, and has attacked dozens of convoys crossing Syria to enforce it. These actions have not stemmed the tide of long- and short-range missiles and rockets, of which Hizbollah now reportedly has over 130,000 in its arsenal, as compared to roughly 15,000 in 2006, prior to their last war. But they did limit the number of high-precision long-range missiles that came through Syria, the kind that can deliver a 400kg warhead on a tall residential building in downtown Tel Aviv and generally threaten Tel Aviv, Ben Gurion airport and Israel’s strategic maritime gas rigs.

Reports since July have suggested that Hizbollah is trying to establish underground long-range missile factories in Lebanon with Iranian support. Israel relayed messages to the U.S. and others that it would take military action to prevent this, a warning that, according to Israeli officials, induced Hizbollah to freeze construction. The dominant official view in Israel is that it can afford to take out any such facility should construction resume, because any Hizbollah retaliation to such a targeted strike likely would itself be narrowly focused and thus fall short of triggering a full-fledged war.

Documentary examines the political intrigue and medical mistakes that killed the shah of Iran
He died in exile, a broken emperor in an unraveling world.Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the shah of Iran, drew his last breath in Egypt in 1980 following a 19-month odyssey that turned him into an opulent, unwanted vagabond at the center of a volatile relationship between the U.S. and the Islamic Revolution that swept Ayatollah Khomeini to power. His story is an enigmatic tale of an autocrat who misjudged history and miscalculated the forces arrayed against him.The new documentary “A Dying King: The Shah of Iran” unfolds like a medical whodunit, examining a carousel of international doctors, egos and mistakes that spun like an eerie coda through the larger political story Much of this mistreatment and his erratic exile was tied to the shunning of a once close American ally.In a 1988 story in Vanity Fair, British journalist William Shawcross, whose book “The Shah’s Last Ride” was a source for Kalhor, wrote that the shah’s demise was a “story of obsessive secrecy degenerated into macabre farce.”The shah was a victim of changing politics and his own missteps — a man beyond help, a scion of a dynasty cast on a long and troubled wandering. Kalhor noted that most of the doctors he talked to said “if the shah was an average Joe walking into any major hospital in any major city in any country, he probably would have been cured.”
