Normalization Agreements and their consequences on the Palestinian
cause and the Gulf Cooperation Council……………. Radhi Al-Musawi      12

The recent agreements between the Zionist entity and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain embodied a major breakthrough in the normalization course, especially since these agreements came at a time when the Arab world is suffering from unprecedented weakness, dispersion, turmoil and disorientation. Not to mention, internal Palestinian situation is still suffering from severe division and the absence of common denominators between the main parties on the Palestinian scene, all while the Palestinians, whether in Gaza or the West Bank are drowning in poverty, unemployment and suffering from poor conditions. This study sheds light on the “Abrahamic Accords” and the economic, political, social and security consequences of normalization on the Palestinian cause and the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Keywords: the Palestinian cause, the Gulf Cooperation Council, normalization, the Abrahamic Accords.

Libya: Revolution and Social and Economic Change:
A “Precariat” Study…………………………………………. Moufid al-Zaidi      35

The 2011 “revolution” in Libya brought about major political and socio-economic changes. In this context, the “precariat” emerged in the Libyan society as a new social group that is still under formation, all while suffering from instability and marginalization. It represents a disadvantaged social group that is somewhat similar to the proletariat; However, this new precariat class has not yet been recognized as a class according to the Marxist concept, as it has not reached the required social and economic levels, and represents a “group” in this sense or concept. This study raises a central question regarding the Libyan reality after the revolution, and its implications on the precariat class in society.

Keywords: Libyan revolution, economic crisis, precariat, political conflicts, division in Libyan society.

Political transformations in Yemen and their repercussions
on the Saudi policy………………………………………… Aya Youssef Zaki      50

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a major player in regional politics, it plays a leading role in the Gulf region, Arab and Islamic world in general. Changes in Saudi foreign policy became much more apparent after King Salman bin Abdulaziz came to power, as the Kingdom decided to adopt a militaristic option to deal with some of the challenges it faces in the region, especially in areas adjacent to its borders. War in Yemen was an expression of such changes in Saudi foreign policy. Therefore, the Saudi policy towards Yemen represents an ideal case for examining how foreign policies are affected by internal political developments.

Keywords: uprising in Yemen 2011, political shifts, Saudi policy, war, Iranian role.

The Juba agreement for peace in Sudan:
a strategic analytical vision………………… Abdul Rahman Abu Khreis      65

Sudan is witnessing major geopolitical shifts due to the continuing political crisis and armed conflicts since independence, which has always threatened its political stability and national cohesion, and later on leading to the secession of the south in 2011 following the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) signed by the central government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement in south of the country. Later on, this agreement came to be viewed as a model by the armed forces of the 2019 revolution, giving inspiration to new settlements with the central government. This study aims to provide a general analysis of the Juba Peace Agreement signed between the armed movements and the transitional government, with the aim of knowing the course of the agreement and its future.

Keywords: peace in Juba, the transitional period, the revolutionary front, armed struggle movements.

The reality behind the dress of the body and one-self,
in accordance to Nassif Nassar………………………… Ibrahim Al-Najjar      99

This is an analytical study of Nassif Nassar’s latest book, The Book of Ishtar: On Dress and the Body, which addresses the human as the source of multiple ways of thought in general and the body in particular. Including: emotional, artistic, scientific, mental and ethical thinking. Such thoughts intertwine with each other in an astonishing way forming a unique hierarchy. In it, rational thinking, along with ethical thinking, occupies a high and distinguished position. If a person preserves this hierarchy, and lives by its guidance, he might avoid slipping, but if negligent and tyrannical in his way thinking, the fragile balance within the human self will be shaken, and perhaps in society as well, which might lead to severe misery and unforeseeable evils.

Keywords: dress, body, nudity, individual, society, ethics, equality.
