“The Rejection Front” Wins

It is no more a complicated issue to know the two parties of conflict in the Middle East. On the one hand, there is a project of American dominance which aims at making the region a farm for the capitals covered by tears and blood of the peoples of the Middle East. On the other, there is a project of opposing, facing and rejecting front that springs out of the will of free life by the peoples of the region. Despite everything that can be said about the new system that holds consequences which make it difficult for the peoples of the region, yet the mutual values that the system holds have flexibility that can be developed to become a new version of a New Middle East signed by all the peoples of the region, especially that the current events on the ground assert today that the American project has reached a deadlock.

For its part, Iran will announce on Sunday a new bid for building 19 energy stations with a total capacity of 1000 megawatt for each with the aim of generating nuclear electricity.
