The Tectonic Shudder of October 7, 2023 in the Middle East by Raphael Israeli

VERO BEACH, Fla. - April 19, 2024 - PRLog -- This volume describes the large gap between the image of the October 7 massacre by Hamas against Israelis and the ensuing Gaza War as a minor neighborhood rift between Israel and the Palestinians. But it ended up with two global forces arrayed against each other: Iran, the head of the Octopus with its tentacles in Syria, Lebanon, Gaza and Yemen, backed by the entire Islamic world and by Russia and China, the former to divert attention from Ukraine, the latter to ensure its oil supply; and the other, the U.S. that supports Israel in that rift, with several Western countries backing them only hesitantly and temporarily due to domestic Muslim pressures within their own borders.
