Thank you for providing such clear analysis and good information about Iran’s Islamic Revolution (CI, February 2019). Your coverage comes as a breath of fresh air compared to the lies peddled by Western media outlets, especially those influenced by Zionist propaganda.

Through determination and valiant resistance, Islamic Iran has shaken the foundations of the oppressive global order and given hope to all the oppressed people in the world. A New World Order based on fairness and justice is taking shape even if slowly!
