Oil Sector Reform in Libya
Will Prime Minister Keeb’s interim government grasp the historic opportunity to reform Libya’s lucrative oil industry? There are good reasons why it should.Libya’s new government has a historic opportunity to match political accountability with business transparency. The size and importance of the oil and gas sector makes it a natural focus for this task.
On Freedom and Imperialism: Arab Spring and the Intellectual Divide - By Ramzy Baroud
The so-called ‘Arab Spring’ is creating an intellectual divide that threatens any sensible understanding of the turmoil engulfing several Arab countries.
The Libyan Transitional Government: Challenges and Recommendations
Effective transitional governance is one of the most pressing challenges facing the reconstruction and stabilisation in Libya, post February 17 Revolution. However, absent functioning institutions of governance will be an obstacle on the way of securing lasting peace by the recently appointed new government.
Freeing My Voice from the Tangles of Oppression
I started to write during the Al Qathafi era; it was an attempt to achieve one goal, to bring enlightenment to my people. The few years I had spent in Libya had made me desperate to show that there was hope, that there was light at the end of the tunnel. It was my feeble way of fighting the brutal dictatorship of Muammar Al Qathafi in a time when most had given up on Libya.
The Terrible Price of Lies
At the G20 summit, French President Nicolas Sarkozy commiserated with President Barack Obama about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whom Sarkozy called a “liar,” prompting Obama to say: “You’re fed up with him? I have to deal with him every day.” But struggling with Israeli leaders is not new.
Outcry From Insider
Under the regime of Al Qathafi, Libyans did not have access to free media which in its print and audio-visual forms was dedicated to the praise and glorification of the leader over the last four decades.
‘Zero-Problems’ Foreign Policy No More: Turkey and the Syrian ‘Abyss’ - By Ramzy Baroud
When Recep Tayyip Erdogan became Turkey’s prime minister in 2003, he seemed to be certain of the new direction his country would take. It would maintain cordial ties with Turkey’s old friends, Israel included, but also reach out to its Arab and Muslim neighbours, Syria in particular.
The New Libya & The International Hydrocarbon Industry
It is safe to say that the new Libya will not have a drastically different upstream oil and gas policy than the one pursued by the Al Qathafi regime. Most likely, under the new Libyan system of governance, oil and gas rights will continue to be granted through production sharing agreements.
Syria on the Brink: Uprising Victim to Regional, International Power Play - By Ramzy Baroud
Syrians continue to be victimized, not only in violent clashes with the Syrian military, but also by regional and international players with various agendas.

That Celebratory Gunfire
As the Libyan people emerge victorious from their eight-month ordeal, they look back with sadness at the death toll; the freedom Libyans thrive on today was achieved at a price. No Libyan will ever be the same.
Gaza Boats Seized, but ‘Freedom Waves’ Will Continue - By Ramzy Baroud
Another mission accomplished, or so it seems. Israeli navy ships have managed to thwart yet another civil society ‘provocation’ (as described by a spokesman for the Israel Embassy in Dublin, Irish Times, November 4).
Turkey and the New Middle East
Turkey’s Prime Minister, Recep Erdoğan, has been fostering his country’s ambitions to become a leading political power in the Arab Muslim world. A visible and vocal tour of successful Arab spring revolutionary countries and crisis-stricken African neighbours has led Arab and Western scholars, as well as policy-makers, to champion the idea of Turkey as a model for aspiring young Arab democracies.
Post-Al Qathafi Libya and Natural Resource Governance
The stability of Libya’s post-Al Qathafi political environment now depends on a myriad of factors – not least of which is the governance and distribution of this North African country’s sizeable natural resource wealth.
Syria, the Arab Yugoslavia of Middle East
The Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad stands as the Yugoslavia of the Middle East, that has to join the expansion southward of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as well as the “new world order” engineered by the US unipolar power.
