EDITOR’S NOTE (Nick Stamatakis): Two days ago, we reported that Russia, Turkey, Iran, and Syria would hold a critical meeting in Moscow. Today a HUGE piece of news was announced as, with China’s mediation, Iran and Saudi Arabia will shake hands, make peace and reopen diplomatic ties!! This is a historic moment! It is the first time a peace deal has been signed in the broader Middle East without American intervention!! A watershed moment for the geopolitical balance globally… The status of the USD is at stake, among many other issues, particularly Israel, which will now be isolated. We should note that throughout the last 12 months, Russia had made many similar diplomatic attempts, passing the baton to China to finish the job…
As far as Greece and Cyprus are concerned, the isolation of Israel will make Cyprus and Greece necessary for its survival – in essence, they will serve as an umbilical cord for Israel. We had often said that the Cyprus problem would be solved when the conditions of the 1974 invasion were reversed. For the past few years, we have been watching this reversal. A new cold war is coming where the West and East will be opposing each other very staunchly. In such an environment, Cyprus will be easier to be integrated into the EU and NATO as a unified state. One note of caution: In the previous cold war, Hellenism had Russia’s door open, and the Russians stopped several “Annan-like” plans in the UN Security Council. In the new Cold War, it looks like Russia’s door will not be open, and this entails many risks for both Greece and Cyprus.
Finally, as far as the Greek Lobbying efforts are concerned, it is imperative to switch gears. The focus on the DC establishment has to change. It is essential to establish a GLOBAL structure, including the Hellenic Diaspora in all continents. Even more critical is incorporating Hellenic “Ecumenical” institutions such as Navigation/Shipping, which do business with all powers. Finally, it would be of paramount importance to free the Constantinople Patriarchate from its State Department chains and use it as a unity symbol for the whole of the “Orthodox” world – in Eastern Europe, in Russia, in America, and even in India (where the Malankara Orthodox Church has one million followers!!)
