"US assures two-state solution for Israel-Palestine at UN"

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/1/26/us-assures-two-state-solution-for-israel-palestine-at-un

Die neue US-Regierung hat ihre Unterstützung für eine Zweistaatenlösung des Nahostkonflikts bekräftigt. "United States President Joe Biden’s Middle East policy 'will be to support a mutually agreed, two-state solution, in which Israel lives in peace and security, alongside a viable Palestinian state', acting US Ambassador to the United Nations Richard Mills has told the UN Security Council. 'The President’s view continues to be that a two-state solution is the only path forward,' White House press secretary Jen Psaki added. (…) The announcement is the beginning of what is expected to be a reset from the policies of former President Donald Trump’s administration, which offered vast support to Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, often at the expense of Palestinian rights."

"Assange vs the violence of imperial 'humanitarianism'"

https://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/1/24/assange-vs-the-violence-of-imperial-humanitarianism

Azeezah Kanji betrachtet den Umgang mit WikiLeaks-Gründer Julian Assange als Ausdruck der "symbiotischen Beziehung zwischen Humanitarismus und Gewalt". "In the United Kingdom court decision sparing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange from extradition to the United States (for now, pending appeal), the intimately symbiotic relationship between humanitarianism and violence was evident once again. Judge Vanessa Baraitser ruled that it would be 'oppressive' to extradite Assange – but not because of the injustice of the US government’s campaign of retribution against him for exposing its massacres, misrepresentations and manipulations, but rather due to the fragility of Assange’s mental health. The same 'justice' system that has eviscerated Assange’s mental wellbeing with prolonged psychological torture, in the assessment of the UN special rapporteur on torture, now poses as his hope for salvation. Like a large-scale governmental version of Munchausen by proxy, the state mystifies its own role in producing the pathology in question, then attempts to extract moral capital from exhibiting a modicum of care. Structural violence creates the need for humanitarianism, which mitigates some of the excesses of violence, ensuring the flourishing of both violence and humanitarianism."

"China authorises coast guard to fire on foreign vessels"

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/1/23/china-authorises-coast-guard-to-fire-on-foreign-vessels-if

Peking hat ein neues Gesetz beschlossen, das der chinesischen Küstenwache erlauben soll, das Feuer auf ausländische Schiffe in umstrittenen Gewässern des Südchinesischen Meeres zu eröffnen. "China’s coast guard is the most powerful force of its kind in the region and is already active in the vicinity of uninhabited East China Sea islands controlled by Japan but claimed by Beijing, as well as in the South China Sea, which China claims virtually in its entirety. Those activities have brought the coast guard into frequent contact with air and sea forces from Japan, its chief ally the US, and other claimants to territory in the South China Sea, including Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines. Both water bodies are considered potential flashpoints and the law’s passage may be a signal China is preparing to up the stakes over what it considers its key national interests."

Jerusalem soll offenbar auch unter Präsident Biden Sitz der US-Botschaft in Israel bleiben. "The incoming administration of President-elect Joe Biden will keep the US embassy in Israel in Jerusalem, his nominee for secretary of state affirmed at his Senate confirmation hearing. (…) Lama Khater, a journalist based in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, wrote in a Twitter post: 'Everything is subject to change in the agendas of successive US administrations, except for absolute loyalty to Israel'."

"Killings of Colombia ex-FARC fighters persist amid peace process"

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/1/18/killings-of-colombia-ex-farc-fighters-persist-amid-peace-process

In Kolumbien fallen frühere Kämpfer der Farc-Guerilla Steven Grattan zufolge nach wie vor gezielten Mordanschlägen zum Opfer. "The FARC, who have been accused of serious war crimes, handed more than 7,000 weapons to a UN peace mission in 2017, ending a five-decade-long conflict that left 260,000 dead. Since the deal, 253 former fighters have been killed, according to numbers compiled by the Institute for Development and Peace Studies (INDEPAZ). It is unclear who the perpetrators are. The current right-wing government of President Ivan Duque Marquez – which came to power in 2018 – has unsuccessfully fought to change the peace deal’s lenient punishments for former FARC fighters. It blames dissident groups and drug gangs for the killings, while the ex-fighters blame state actors and paramilitary groups. 'They’ve killed four already this year, it’s very concerning,' said Gonzalez, who joined the rebel group in 1991, he says, out of necessity when paramilitary groups were taking control of the area where he lived."

These are the latest in a series of measures aimed at stepping up pressure on Tehran in the waning days of US President Donald Trump’s administration, which ends on January 20."

"North Korea: Will Kim Jong Un resume ICBM and nuclear tests?"

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/1/14/north-korea-will-kim-jong-un-resume-icbm-and-nuclear-tests

Staatschef Kim Jong Un hat auf einem Parteikongress verkündet, dass Nordkorea sein Atomwaffenprogramm ausweiten und eine nukleare Erstschlagsfähigkeit anstreben werde. "The weapons in development, Kim said, included a 'multi-warhead rocket', solid-fuel intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), 'supersonic gliding flight warheads' and even a nuclear-powered submarine. The goal, according to the North Korean leader, was to attain the capability 'for making a preemptive and retaliatory nuclear strike' that can 'annihilate' any targets within 15,000 kilometres (9,320 miles) – a range that puts the US itself well within reach. 'Our foreign political activities should be focused and redirected on subduing the US, our principal enemy and main obstacle to our innovated development,' Kim told the Congress. While he did not rule out diplomacy, 'the reality is that we can achieve peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula when we constantly build up our national defence and suppress US military threats,' he said."

"Why Afghanistan-Taliban peace talks have not reached breakthrough"

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/1/12/why-have-the-afghanistan-taliban-peace-talks-stalled

Osama Bin Javaid erklärt, warum es bei den Friedensgesprächen zwischen den Taliban und der afghanischen Regierung in Doha bisher keinen Durchbruch gegeben habe. "The reason for a lack of urgency in the continuing talks is being attributed to the change in the US administration led by President-elect Joe Biden and their policy on Afghanistan. Biden will inherit a situation where just 2,500 US soldiers will be left in Afghanistan after the outgoing Trump administration ordered an accelerated withdrawal of troops. Jake Sullivan, the National Security Advisor-designate for Biden’s administration, recently said the US will support diplomacy along the lines of the US-Taliban peace deal signed in February last year to ensure 'Afghanistan never again becomes a safe haven for terrorists to attack the US'."

Joe Biden hat vor zehn Jahren versprochen, das umstrittene US-Gefangenenlager in Guantanamo Bay zu schließen. Al Jazeera hat sich im Programm Inside Story mit der Frage beschäftigt, ob der künftige US-Präsident sein Versprechen einlösen wird. "Amnesty International is now urging President-elect Joe Biden to fulfil a promise he made 10 years ago to close it down. There are still 40 people held there with no access to fair trials. Amnesty’s 62-page report says the detentions at Guantanamo are 'inescapably bound up with' years of unlawful government misconduct and that there is a continuing lack of accountability for that."

"America is coming undone"

https://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2021/1/7/america-is-coming-undone

Der Sturm auf das US-Kapitol könnte sich nach Ansicht von Andrew Mitrovica als Beginn einer "Implosion" der amerikanischen Demokratie herausstellen. "The suggestion that the anarchy on display simply represents the flickering embers of a diseased regime led by a mob boss turned president is not only a convenient evasion, but a comforting delusion. America is coming undone. (…) It would, however, be wrong and foolish to insist that Trump alone has been responsible for the near fatal erosion of legitimacy of the vaunted traditions and institutions that allegedly gird the frayed remnants of American democracy that were physically attacked yesterday. The incontestable criminality of other presidents, including Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George W Bush, at home and abroad – from Watergate, the Iran-Contra scandal and the intractable, catastrophic, premeditated invasion of Iraq – surely combined, generations before the evolution of the fetid cesspool of Trumpism, to subvert the notion that the rule of law prevails in America."

"What’s next after Assange extradition request blocked"

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/1/4/assange-extradition-case-explainer-whats-next-in-500-words

Al Jazeera erwartet, dass sich der juristische Kampf um Julian Assange nach dem Urteil im britischen Auslieferungsverfahren verschärfen wird. "The legal fight is expected to intensify as US prosecutors indicated they will appeal and now have a two-week window to do so. Assange’s lawyer said he would apply for bail on Wednesday, pending that appeal. Australia-born Assange, whose trial began in last February and concluded in October, is currently being held at the maximum-security prison in London. US prosecutors’ anticipated appeal is expected to keep his case in the courts for months. Possible challenges could see the UK Supreme Court and even the European Court of Human Rights forced to make judgements. If Monday’s ruling is overturned, Assange’s case will eventually be weighed by the UK’s home secretary, who makes the final decision on extraditions."

"How Huntington and Fukuyama got the 21st century wrong"

https://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2020/12/19/how-huntington-and-fukuyama-got-the-21st-century-wrong

Howard Brasted und Shafi Mostofa stellen fest, dass sich die politikwissenschaftlichen Prognosen von Francis Fukuyama und Samuel P. Huntington heute als falsch herausgestellt hätten. Kaum einer der aktuell vorherrschenden Trends sei von den beiden Experten vorhergesehen worden. "As 2020 draws to an end, however, neither of these grand theories seems to be playing out the way their authors anticipated. (…) While Huntington has been credited with incorporating a populist dimension into his 'clash of civilization' thesis, he did not foresee that the trajectory populism might take would just as likely foment intra-state tensions as heighten inter-civilisational antagonisms. A decided turn towards authoritarianism, to offset popular dissent, is arguably becoming a defining feature of politics in Asia, the Middle East, and South America, and indeed in the democratic West, as well. A political scientist looking into the crystal ball today might well project the remainder of the 21st century not in terms of looming civilisational war, but of increasing civil unrest."

Der Direktor des Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention hat die ungleiche internationale Verteilung von Covid-19-Impfstoffen als "moralische Frage" eingestuft. "Africa’s top public health official has said 'it will be extremely terrible to see' rich countries receiving COVID-19 vaccines while African countries go without it, especially as a new surge in cases begins on the continent of 1.3 billion people. As the world watches mass vaccinations begin in Britain, Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director John Nkengasong warned on Thursday that Africa might not see vaccines until after the second quarter of 2021."

Die Zahl der zivilen Opfer von US-Luftangriffen in Afghanistan hat sich im letzten Jahr einer neuen Studie zufolge deutlich erhöht. "Deaths of Afghan civilians in air raids carried out by the United States and its allies 'increased dramatically' since 2017 when Washington loosened its criteria and escalated attacks on the Taliban, according to a report released on Monday. The number of civilians killed annually in US and coalition air attacks soared by 330 percent to some 700 civilians in 2019, said Neta C Crawford, co-director of the Costs of War Project at Brown University. More civilians died in 2019 than any other year since the beginning of war in 2001, according to the report."

Mit der Zulassung der ersten Covid-19-Impfstoffe wächst die Kritik am "Impfstoff-Nationalismus" vieler Länder. "Health experts said political posturing could harm efforts to boost public confidence in COVID-19 vaccines at a critical time. 'We must be careful not to be nationalistic about this,' David Taylor, professor emeritus at UCL’s Pharmaceutical and Public Health Policy, told Al Jazeera. Taylor warned against 'destructive competition', adding people should instead remember 'achievements made across the world'. 'It’s good to compare and contrast the different properties of different vaccines, for example,' he said. 'But when this turns to bad-mouthing each other or undermining cooperation, that obviously is undesirable and generally witless.'"

Der kommende US-Präsident Joe Biden hat seine Absicht bekräftigt, die USA in das internationale Atomabkommen mit dem Iran zurückzuführen. "United States President-elect Joe Biden has said in a new interview that returning to the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran is the best way to avoid a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Biden, in a New York Times interview published on Wednesday, reiterated that the US would rejoin the agreement, known officially as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) if Iran returns to 'strict compliance'. Under the accord, Iran had agreed to curtail its nuclear development in exchange for sanctions relief. Biden said a return to the agreement, which would include lifting the sanctions imposed by the administration of President Donald Trump, would serve as a 'starting point to follow-on negotiations'."

Bei einem Massaker im Nordosten Nigerias sind mindestens 110 Zivilisten getötet worden. "'Armed men on motorcycles led a brutal attack on civilian men and women who were harvesting their fields,' Edward Kallon, the UN’s humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria, said in a statement on Sunday. 'At least 110 civilians were ruthlessly killed and many others were wounded in this attack,' he added, noting that several women are believed to have been kidnapped. (…) There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack, but the armed group Boko Haram and its splinter faction, the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP), have carried out a series of deadly assaults in the area in recent years. Both groups are active in the region, where fighters have killed more than 30,000 people in the past decade during an armed campaign that has displaced some two million and has spread to neighbouring countries including Niger, Chad and Cameroon."

Die iranische Führung wird auf das Attentat auf einen Atomwissenschaftler möglicherweise gewaltsam reagieren, so die Erwartung einiger Experten. "Senior Iraq Analyst at the International Crisis Group Lahib Higel told Al Jazeera that: 'It is possible that we will see retaliation in Iraq by Iran-linked groups.' However, she said this month’s US presidential election – in which incumbent Donald Trump was beaten by Joe Biden – has complicated the situation. 'On the one hand Iran and its affiliates in Iraq want to lay low until the [President] Trump team leaves office in January, but on the other hand it is unlikely that the Iranians won’t answer before that time,' she said. She said an Iranian response in Iraq would likely 'take on similar forms as what we have seen previously, rocket attacks on the green zone or Ain al-Asad airbase, targeting logistics convoys'. 'But there are other theatres in the region where this could happen as well.'"

Nach der Vorstellung des geplanten sicherheitspolitischen Personals der Biden-Administration zeichnet sich Joseph Stepansky zufolge ein "dramatischer" Wandel der amerikanischen Nahostpolitik ab. "In particular, Biden – and notably his nominees for Secretary of State, Antony Blinken and National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan – have outlined a dramatic shift in Middle East policy that will emphasise diplomacy and human rights. Biden also nominated career diplomat Linda Thomas-Greenfield for US Ambassador to the United Nations. Experts say the new policy approach will include more pressure on Saudi Arabia and Egypt over human rights, a mission to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, and a relaunch of attempts – with less concession for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – to bring Palestinian and Israeli officials back to the negotiating table. The new administration will likely first realign 'the US with Europe, including the EU [European Union] and NATO and the individual EU countries before making any major moves,' said William Lawrence, an American University lecturer and former US Department of State official under the administration of President Barack Obama."

t

Das US-Militär hat zum ersten Mal konkrete Angaben über Einsätze gegen den "Islamischen Staat" in Irak und Syrien, bei denen Zivilisten verletzt und getötet wurden, offengelegt. "For the first time since the US-led coalition launched a war against ISIL (ISIS) in 2014, the US military has exclusively released the geographic coordinates for nearly all confirmed instances of civilian harm and deaths in Iraq and Syria to Airwars, a UK-based non-profit organisation that works to track and assess military actions in conflict zones. The data obtained by Airwars has allowed for the accurate locating of 341 incidents of civilian harm and roughly 1,400 civilian deaths from 2014 to 2019 that have been acknowledged by the US military. Airwars estimates that the total number of civilians killed by US-led coalition forces during the war is somewhere in the range of 8,310 to 13,187. The breakthrough provides insight into questions that have been looming for years. The data shows when and where a particular event took place, and simplifies the process of determining which individuals were affected by a specific attack. This new evidence could potentially open the door for formal apologies and restitution payments from the United States and its allies."

Der saudi-arabische Außenminister Adel al-Jubeir hat den vor einer erneuten Verlängerung stehenden deutschen Rüstungsexportstopp für das Königreich kritisiert. "Saudi Arabia has been at war in Yemen since March 2015, when a coalition led by the oil-rich kingdom launched a campaign of aerial bombardment aimed at countering the Iran-aligned Houthi rebels and reinstating the internationally recognised government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi. 'We can buy weapons from a number of countries, and we do so. Saying we’re not going to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia doesn’t make a difference to us,' said al-Jubeir. He also emphasised that Saudi Arabia did not want to put Germany under pressure over the matter. 'I am just saying people need to look at this from a balanced perspective.' Saudi Arabia was the world’s top arms importer, spending $16.9bn on weapons in the period between 2014 and 2018, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), a defence think-tank."

Im Norden Mozambiques haben bewaffnete Extremisten Berichten zufolge über 50 Menschen enthauptet.

(…) Witnesses told local media the assailants herded residents onto the local football field in the village of Muatide where the killings were carried out. Security forces in gas-rich Cabo Delgado province have been fighting the armed group – which pledged allegiance to ISIL (ISIS) last year – since 2017. But some analysts have questioned how serious the ISIL (ISIS) link really is, saying the root of the unrest may be poverty and inequality rather than religion. Little is known about the fighters who call themselves al-Shabab – although they have no known links to the group of that name operating in Somalia."

"Will Joe Biden alter US policy in the Middle East?"

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/11/9/biden-expected-to-alter-the-regions-status-quo-analysis

Thomas Falk analysiert, wie die US-Außenpolitik im Nahen Osten unter Präsident Biden aussehen könnte. "The soon-to-be commander-in-chief never left any doubt about his plans to bring about a paradigm shift in policy, domestically, as well as on the international stage: A goodbye to President Donald Trump’s 'America First', that, according to Biden, 'has made America alone', and a hello to multilateralism and pushing respect for normative values. The latter is of particular relevance for the Middle East and will alter the region’s status quo. Biden is expected to continue the US’s withdrawal from the region, even more so since championing a return to a more conventional foreign policy that is likely to play second fiddle to domestic emergencies such as the coronavirus pandemic and an American economy on its knees. Nonetheless, Biden will make his presence felt in the Middle East."
