Are we going to defeat ISIS and bring the end of this phenomenon?

 ISIS, the dynamics of its rise and decline

ISIS EUThe elimination of al-Qaeda’s leaders such as Bin Laden and al-Zarqawi did not end the organization which they created and led. Despite causing serious damages, the theatrical elimination of the leaders actually helped the rise of a new generation of international Jihadi organizations that are more violent and brutal. During the last three decades, the trend that we can observe is the transformation of radical organizations that started as small groups in the mountains of Afghanistan and Yemen into large multinational organizations; from a non-state structure into a state structure; and from secretive and simple mode of operation into an open and complex one.

If we want to face the Islamic State (ISIS, or Daesh) and defeat it, we need first to understand the social and political dynamics that led to its rise and allowed it to continue and thrive.

ISIS: Disintegration or Metamorphosis

From State back to Guerilla Warfare

As the year 2017 nears its end, the governing structures which ISIS has erected in the past three years are also nearing a complete destruction under both the blows of the international coalition and its own internal fissures. The last audio message by ISIS’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, titled “Our Lord is our Sole Guide and Support” and disseminated by ISIS’s official media agency, al-Furqan, on the evening of September 28, 2017 confirms these suspicions.

Disruptive Strategies in Globalized World

Incumbent companies facing the challenges of globalization

Globalization emerged to many Western business conglomerates as a long sought-after opportunity that they have been eagerly waiting for. In the 80’s and 90’s, globalization was the main contributor to the reduction of manufacturing costs for the Western companies who sought to transfer low-tech manufacturing to the Asian region; and at a later stage Eastern Europe to have a very broad manufacturing footprints. On the other hand, it's also been an opportunity for those countries that were eager to build their infrastructure and to enter a world of competition and growth.

A Perspective on the Syrian Conflict

A Structural and Cultural Approach

At the last meeting of the representatives of Group of Friends of the Syrian People, I had the pleasure to present my views on the Syrian conflict.  I used that opportunity to suggest a new approach to deal with the Syrian wicked issues. My main focus was public and civil society organizations instead of the usual disproportionate focus given to international stakes.

This approach depends on attacking root causes at the paradigmatic and philosophical (or cultural) level through a well-planned intervention at the societal level using educational rather than political institutions.

 The Syrian Pawn on the Middle Eastern Chessboard

Why the Syrian crisis will continue

The Syrian crisis is entering its fifth year, at a time when many western countries are reconsidering and revaluating their military, security and political policies towards the Middle East following the assassination of journalists at Charlie Hebdoin Paris.

The gravity of the incident confirmed to the world’s policy makers that the policy of anticipation that aims to turn Syria into a holocaust for all terrorists only transformed the Syrian crisis from a regional crisis to a global issue that is extending to the usually safe European countries.
