Instead of adopting and living up to the Qur’anic description of being a Muslim or a mumin, many have fallen into sectarian labels that exclude the ‘other’ from their self-designated identity.
America is the only country in the world that uses sanctions as a weapon of war. The list of sanctioned countries is growing but apart from creating mass starvation and deaths, the Washington warlords have achieved little.
The US-imposed sanctions on Iran have largely failed primarily because the rest of the world is fed up with US bullying and blackmailing tactics. Instead of Iran, it is the US that stands totally isolated.
“Islamic awakening is spreading and with strong faith in Allah, the Resistance movement is winning,’ said the Rahbar, Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Sunday November 25.
Addressing the opening session of 32nd International Unity Conference in Tehran on November 24, President Hassan Rouhani condemned the “Zionist tumor” implanted in the Middle East and offered to defend Saudi Arabia “for free”.
The world is changing fast. This can be witnessed in the new alliances that are emerging to challenge US hegemony.
Islamic Iran may initially suffer a setback due to America’s illegal sanctions but Trump’s policy will spell the death knell of dollar hegemony.
Arabian officials do not make even a pretense of condemning terrorism. They are openly applauding it as was evident in the September 22 terrorist attack in Ahvaz that killed 29 people including women and children.
President Hassan Rouhani of Iran rejected claims by Donald Trump that he or any of his officials had ever sought a meeting with the US president. Such a meeting, said the Iranian President, would not be “appropriate”.
Foreign-backed terrorists attacked a military parade in Iran’s western province of Ahvaz earlier today killing at least 29 people among them women and children and wounded 53 others.
It is a waste of time to take Donald Trump seriously. That is precisely what the leaders of the Islamic Republic did when Trump offered to talk to them anytime, any place without preconditions after imposing illegal sanctions on Iran.
While there is marked increase in threats from the US and Zionist Israel against Islamic Iran and Hizbullah, should either of the aggressors blunder into launching an attack, they will find the outcome very grim for them.
Uncle Sam is waging economic and financial warfare against the Islamic Republic in order to undermine its independence based on the Islamic value system.
Rulers often masquerade as leaders but Islam has its own requirements for leadership that are very different from other systems. We examine the difference between rulers and leaders.
To understand why the people and leadership of Iran distrust the US, one only has to recall the US’ deliberate shooting down of an Iranian passenger plane on July 3, 1988 in the Persian Gulf.
Paying tribute to the sagacity and wisdom of the late Imam Khomeini
While Arabian rulers have been largely silent about the future of Jerusalem and Palestine, only Islamic Iran has taken the lead to mobilize Muslim public opinion.
While he had repeatedly said that he would pull the US out of the multilateral Iran nuclear deal, Donald Trump’s announcement on May 8 still came as a shock.
With drums of war beating louder in the Muslim East (aka Middle East), the conflict will be between the victims (Resistance Front—Islamic Iran, Hizbullah, Syria, Iraq) and the aggressors (US, Israel, Saudi Arabia et al).
History offers lessons in how to confront—and defeat—imperialism and Zionism.
