The Middle East and change the old rules

One of the most important factors of permanent turmoil in the Middle East is the aspiration of many of its countries to establish influence in other countries, sometimes under political slogans, and others ideologically. local, and the hands that move and spend on it come from beyond the borders, and even from beyond the oceans.

This was the case of the Middle East and its countries, and as a result, one of the most important regions of the world sank into a vortex of death, destruction and bloodshed, and the people of the Middle East had no choice but to pay the price for this.

And if we review the results of this tragic path, we find a shining fact that says... that the intervention of one country in another country to extend its influence over it has always failed, but rather achieved the opposite result, as the desired influence in another country has become a heavy burden on those who seek it. , and an exhausting depletion of capabilities, and no country that got involved in such a matter except that it reaped a decline that reaches the brink of collapse in its economy, and what is supposed to be spent on its development.

In the context of seeking such influence, another issue resulted in the level of countries that have become victims of this type of intervention, which is the marginalization of the role of their people and their political forces in bringing about positive changes in their countries, so that the fate of the entity that was involved in calling for external intervention is linked to the agendas of the interventionists. In politics, war and influence, there is no charitable work. In the matter of intervention... Rather, it is an influence that is difficult to get rid of if I want to.

The regions that have suffered most from this phenomenon are our Middle East, and its geographical, human and wealth heart is our Arab world, and we can now ask: What did the interventions produce for their various motives and methods? One system did not change, and one country that was interfered with was not annexed to another, and the entities and systems remained the same. its condition, and any change, major or minor, was only due to internal work; Either governments did it, or public opinion and its national institutions forced them to do it.

The radical and accelerating changes and influence on the world level in which the Middle East lives, necessitate that the countries of the region, large and small, abandon the logic of searching for influence in other countries, and that countries that require external intervention they deem necessary stop practicing this miserable investment, which experience has proven to bear a loss. An investigator for those who interfere, and for those who require intervention...

And if the people of the Middle East, who are full of issues that have no solution according to the old rules, are eager to leave the vortex of bleeding, destruction and waste, then their decision-making countries and systems have no choice but to stop once and for all with the illusion of establishing influence outside the borders of their countries and societies, and to stop running after the mirage of a tidal wave. Influence is the result of an imperial illusion. If it was valid in an ancient time, then there is no room for it to be valid in our time...

People are tired of wasting their capabilities in investing outside their borders, their lives, and in the sphere of influence. The time has come to change the old rules by establishing new ones, the basis of which is that investment in reconciliation and common interests, and on the basis of respect for each country for the other, is what provides mutual benefit with others, and to the same extent provides A sound orientation of the energies and capabilities to where any of them should be directed to their owners.

What I am saying is not rhetoric, preaching, or mere wishful thinking, but rather the truth whose introductions began to appear between Saudi Arabia and Iran, as well as between Egypt and Iran, and it must be completed between Egypt and Turkey, and perhaps Syria as well, and in the event that the path continues and is protected by those who benefit from the old remaining as it is. We will see a Middle East, if not completely new, then in a better condition.
