2016 Year in Preview
It appears that the market is in the process of topping out, probably the final stage. As I’ve often said, market tops are generally not an event but a process, which can take 12-18 months. My view remains unchanged, and thus far I’ve seen NOTHING that doesn’t align with our April Special Report entitled “ 2015 Year in Pictures: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.”
Avi Melamed
Author
Avi Melamed is author of the new book, Inside the Middle East. An internationally acclaimed Middle East expert and former Senior official on Arab Affairs and Intelligence official, Avi Melamed is now an independent Middle East strategic intelligence analyst, private lecturer, and Fellow of Intelligence and Middle East Affairs at the Eisenhower Institute at Gettysburg College. He is a frequent media guest who has appeared on major radio and television programs around the world.

Fluent in Arabic, Hebrew, and English, he has spent decades operating in Arab cities throughout the region, often in high-risk positions at sensitive times. Avi Melamed’s unique experience, outstanding analytical abilities, and profound understanding of the Arab world—coupled with direct access to sources, regional intelligence resources and networks throughout the Arab world—has allowed him to keep his finger on the pulse of the Middle East. He has a proven and unparalleled record of foreseeing the evolution of events across the region. During the first intifada, he was Israel’s youngest-ever deputy adviser on Arab affairs, working with then mayor of Jerusalem Teddy Kollek. He then served as senior advisor to Israel’s former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert during his time as mayor. He lives in Israel.
Inside the Middle East: Making Sense of the Most Dangerous and Complicated Region on Earth
Acclaimed Israeli intelligence analyst Avi Melamed has spent more than thirty years interpreting Middle East affairs. His long-awaited Inside the Middle East challenges widely-accepted perceptions and provides a gripping and uniquely enlightening guide to make sense of the events unfolding in the region—to answer how the Arab world got to this point, what is currently happening, what the ramifications will be, how they will affect Israel, and what actions must immediately be undertaken, including how Western leaders need to respond.

Melamed considers all the major power players in the Middle East, explains the underlying issues, and creates a three-dimensional picture, an illustration that connects the dots and provides a fascinating roadmap. He elucidates developments such as the Arab Spring, the downfall of the Muslim Brotherhood, the rise of ISIS, the epic Sunni-Shiite animosity, the essence of the war in Syria, the role of the Caliphate and Jihad, and the looming nuclear arms race. He also provides a rare opportunity to journey into the psyche of Arab society. Look through the lens of its leaders and its most ruthless terrorists. See what makes them tick and what they want. Discover how they can be overtaken.
