  1. oh right lol, not in the sense of the IRGC if that's what you mean but maybe in other ways :) salaams

  2. Ahh sorry about that, didn't realise it's blocked in the US. Alternative clip you can watch (although I have to admit, not as good ! ): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOVJMbhg9NQ
  3. kidding you about what bro? do i know you?

  4. Salaam, I saw this on TV today and found the clip on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qx_4yyucagw Truly amazing how many western women are now embracing Islam ...
  5. Salaam, So sad to hear this...it's nothing short of murder. Almost every year hundreds of Iranians die because we cannot renew our old planes with new ones (can't buy planes from Boeing, and Airbus planes incorporate parts made by American companies) and are denied vital spare parts for the planes we do have. The sanctions on civilian aircraft demonstrates quite clearly that the sanctions Iran has been under the last 30 years or so aren't to stop Iran's missile/ nuclear program it's an attempt to keep the country backward. Alhamdulillah in most areas the sanctions have been overcome in one wa
  6. Salaam, Thanks for the article, I enjoyed reading it. Whether or not Israel can defeat Hezbollah depends on their objectives. If their objectives are to kill more Lebanese than Israelis die, yes they will almost definitely win. But bloodthirsty though they undoubtedly are, they usually always have some kind of strategic interest in their wars. In the case of Hezbollah it's probably destroying them as a credible military force, and they've been defeated in that regard for almost 30 years now. Any conflict against Hezbollah is really a conflict against the people of Lebanon, especially the peo
  7. salaam, The Syrian government is worthy of as much criticism, if not more so, than any other European country which enforces such a ban. Just to respond to the point made earlier; their is no contradiction at all in supporting the Islamic dress code in a country such as Iran whilst also being against this ban in both western and muslim countries. The difference between Iran and France/Belgium/Spain/any other western european country is that Iran preaches Islamic Republic and practises Islamic law, European countries preach freedom (of expression and all of the other ones) but practise somet
  8. Salaam, I have very little knowledge in economics, but in my opinion from what I know this is a good idea. When the state controls these companies they become inefficient due to the lack of competition. When a company knows any losses it incurs will be covered by the government, then there is no incentive on preventing inefficiences if they do occur. Unless there is direct competition between companies, with the prospect of you going out of business unless you prevent your losses and maximise your profit and provide the best products for the consumer, progress will not be as quick as it can b
  9. Salaam, What people personally think about the Burqa in this situation is irrelevant. Some may see it as a 'hideous contraption', others as a modest form of dress. The fact of the matter is that Belgium, and indeed most of Western Europe, portray themselves as flag bearers for freedom of expression, freedom of speech...etc. To ban the Burqa would be trampling all over these supposed freedoms. If the Belgian people, or their representatives in government, want this ban enforced, there is little that can be done. After all it is their country, and the views of the majority there dictates whethe
  10. Salaam, First of all welcome to the forum! I think you will find it difficult to find unbiased sources on the issue of Hezbollah, mainly because the issue is so decisive. Here's my opinion anyway... In a nutshell Hezbollah is an Islamic resistance group formed after the Israeli invasion and occupation of Lebanon. The very basis of the existence of Hezbollah is to fight against occupation and oppression. If you believe in the idea of struggle (jihad) and the idea of resistance to oppression as you mentioned, then the cause of Hezbollah is one you will respect and understand. It was through the
  11. salam, Curious American, it is very easy to jump to hasty conclusions. Can you not think of any situation where the number of people present in a particular city exceeds the native population of that city? How about tourist hotspots? Is it inconceivable to imagine a scenario, where, in a city such as Mashad, or in cities in the north of Iran (Mazandaran) which receive huge numbers of tourists, especially in the summer, the voter population would exceed the quoted population figure? Many of these allegations, based solely on circumstancial evidence in regards to voter fraud (note, no hard evide
  12. salam, Why did the European delegates leave? Was it because what he said was not true or because it was something they didn't want to hear? The latter I think. We can discuss the timing, the manner of what he said. where he said it, the way he said it, and the context of his speech all day, but the reality is, unlike many other spineless, cowardly and/or ignorant world leaders he spoke the truth and he continues to speak the truth and he continues to be ridiculed and insulted for it.
  13. salam, People are not so quick to question and query Iran's ties with athiest North Korea, or possible ties with the US which has acted against Iranian national interests from the moment it set foot in Iran, starting with the 1952 coup right up to their present day threats and sanctions as they are to question Iran's ties with Hamas. Since when do two entities have to agree on every single issue for them to forge ties and maintain a relationship? Hamas are the elected government of Palestine. They are a legitimate resistance movement fighting to liberate their nation from the shackles of oppr
  14. salam, The world is silent while the massacre in Gaza goes on. It is difficult to decide which is the more disgusting, the Israeli onslaught on Gaza, or the complicity and support of the puppets in arab countries. Malcolm X said it beautifully: 'I have more respect for a man who lets me know where he stands, even if he's wrong, than the one who comes up like an angel and is nothing but a devil'. What more could you expect from Israel? They were created with the genocide of Palestinians and with the expulsion of over 750,000 people from their homes. Since then they have continued to oppress
  15. Salaam, As is pretty clear from my username, I support the Islamic Revolution and the government of Iran. That is not to say that I agree with everything it does, or that I believe it is devoid of flaws, however the Islamic Revolution has returned to Iranians their identity and independence, and freed it from the clutches of foreign powers. In essence, the Islamic Republic of Iran is the result and fruition of a nation who rose up against a tyrant, disposed of him, his cronies and his masters and instead replaced it with an Islamic form of government which was was, remains, and will remain th
  16. salaam, 'The believers, in their love, mercy, and kindness to one another are like a body: if any part of it is ill, the whole body shares its sleeplessness and fever.' Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) It is pleasing to see so many people have turned out for the Quds rallies which are taking place all over the world. The words of Imam Khomeini (ra) still hold significance and almost 3 decades on, people continue to heed his words and continue to march in support of the rights of Palestinians. Palestinians, today, are one of the most oppressed people on earth. Their plight and suffering has been conti
  17. salam, Masoud Mirkazemi The economic growth rate of the Islamic Republic of Iran has exceeded six percent over the past two years, Iran's commerce minister says. The value of the country's trade transactions with other countries has exceeded $120 billion in 2007 and it is expected that it will grow by 20 percent in 2008, Mehr News Agency quoted Iran's minister of commerce, Masoud Mirkazemi, as saying. "The national economy has posted a growth rate of over 6 percent in the past two years, while its non-oil exports have risen by 47 percent in the same period," he added. Speaking at the Fifth Ir
  18. Salam, Please have a read of this. It is from Ayatollah Hadavi Tehrani's book 'Faith and Reason'...: http://www.al-islam.org/faith_reason/ Question n. 24 Purpose of Creation Question: What is the purpose of creation? Please state rational proofs in this regards. If the purpose is to perfect ourselves, then why did not Allah (awj) create humanity perfect to begin with? Brief Answer Allah (awj) is an unlimited being who holds all perfections. Creating (bringing to existence) is munificence (jamal) and Allah (awj) is munificent. His munificence necessitates that He grant existence to anything wor
  19. salam, Because we submit to Allah, and He is the only being worth our worship. Have a read of this: Why do Muslims Pray? www.islamonline.com Taken from: "Why Do We Pray?" by Dr. Suhaib Hasan After a long and hectic day at work, some might think that it is difficult for a tired person to concentrate on his prayers to Allah, the Almighty. Snuggled up in a warm and cozy bed, how difficult it is to get up at the call of the Mu`azzin (calling to prayers): "Come to prayer! Come to success!" Describing this moment, the famous doctor and philosopher, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), narrated that on one cold an
  20. salam, The counter argument to the majority argument merely means that the majority are not necessarily correct. This does not mean that the minority are thus correct either. The majority could still be correct, but the fact that they are the majority does not necessarily mean that they are correct. If you apply the same argument to Shias alone, it means that since Jaffaris are the majority they are not necessarily correct in their views. However this does not mean that therefore Ismailis are now correct. It just means that this argument is not sufficient to prove that Jafferis are correct in
  21. salam The millions of displaced, occupied, and oppressed Palestinians do, as should the Muslim Ummah. Wherever people are oppressed, we should side with them. Today the Palestinians are oppressed, therefore we side with them, support them, and we care about their affairs. The prophet (pbuh) said: “My ummah is like one body; if one part of it is injured, the whole body shakes with pain. ”
  22. salam, This is not the shia viewpoint (that other religions can exist and co exist peacefully with Islam) but the viewpoint of Islam as a whole. In chapter 109, Verse 1, Holy Quran: Say: O ye that reject Faith! I do not serve that which you serve, Nor do you serve Him Whom I serve: Nor am I going to serve that which you serve, Nor are you going to serve Him Whom I serve: You shall have your religion and I shall have my religion. The Holy Quran says, in Chapter 2, verse 256: "There is no compulsion in religion. The right path has indeed become distinct from the wrong. So whoever rejects fal
