  1. The supreme leader of Iran Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei(ha) stated: "We thank Trump for exposing the reality of the U.S." Read the full statement here: http://english.khamenei.ir/news/4617/We-thank-Trump-for-exposing-the-reality-of-the-U-S-Ayatollah
  2. Friends Let us try to analyze the basis on which the list of 7 countries was framed, the list banning people from US shores. In my view, here are some of the points worth considering. 1. Countries which are full of terrorists, such as Pakistan and Afghanistan, were excluded. Why? Well, it is common knowledge that Pakistan is a US puppet. And with massive US presence in Afghanistan, strategically, it may not be a very good idea to provoke Afghanistan at this point. 2. Countries which embody and promote the ideology that produces terrorists, such as Saudi Arabia were excluded. Why? Because Saudi Arabia is helping the US achieve its imperialist goals in the Middle East. And possibly because Saudi Arabia is rumored to have arrived at a secret pact with Israel against Iran. Qatar is also a US puppet., as are all Gulf principalities, solely interested in the countless dollars that flow from their oil. Saudi Arabia has been equipped with the finest in weaponry, by both the US and Britain, which it has used extensively to subdue poverty-stricken Yemen. And let us not forget that all (or most) of the terrorists in the biggest single episode of terrorism (the iconic 9/11) were Saudi nationals, not from any other country. Osama bin Laden himself was a Saudi. 3. Most terrorists are people with some sympathy for al Qaida or ISIS, And that ideology comes from Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia was born from the womb of terrorism, when the Saudis overran the land just short of 100 years ago. In fact, Saudi Arabia and ISIS have exactly the same ideology, except that the Saudis are the first cab off the rank. And they do not wish to lose the crown and trillions of dollars to ISIS. So Saudi Arabia being excepted from the ban is clear evidence that fear of terrorism is NOT the reason for the ban. 4.Turkey has produced a large number of terrorists in the recent past. But Turkey was not in the list. After all, how could a NATO ally be in the list, regardless how much terrorism there is in that country. 5. And now the big surprise! Countries with an enviable record of containing terrorist activity, such as Iran were included. If my memory serves me right, if all the instances of terror around the world in the last 20 years were to be listed, not one single episode can be traced to Iran. Or if I may have missed something in the news, Iran would definitely be at the bottom of the list. Yet Iran was listed. 6. Now let us think - why exactly was Iran in the list? Was it because the US has not yet fully avenged itself for being booted out of Iran in 1953 and then again in 1980? Or because Iran has refused to recognized Israel as a legitimate baby? Quite possibly both. And that is the whole point. If an imperialist power believes that Israel is a legitimate child, how could anyone dare to differ? If God's own country desires that every nation MUST accept that view, how could anyone support a different view? Imperialism redux! Accept what the master says or he will destroy you! Voltaire must be turning in his grave at the abuse of freedom of opinion but no freedom of opinion is allowed there. Absolutely none! All slaves (aka allies) must obey the master and ditto his views and opinions. Otherwise, they will be branded as the axis of evil. to paraphrase, George Bush the younger. 7. The US has a history of making friends with bad boys just like Mafia bosses have always enlisted murderers and hoodlums. (a) It developed Osama into becoming Osama until Osama was annoyed by US bases in Saudi Arabia and turned against them. (b) It used Saddam to build its power in the region. TIME magazine once quoted a US official as saying "Saddam is a SOB but he is our SOB". In other words, he is a horrible man, of course, but he serves our purpose. And that is all that matters. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In summary therefore, its is clear that the basis for the list of 7 was not the fear of terrorist activity but the game of political and imperialist chess. Are you willing to work for me as a slave? Don't feel embarrassed. I won't call you a slave. You will be known as an ally. If you are willing, then I will have to work out how useful you could be to me. After all, an evil slave who is blindly obedient to the master is more useful than one who chooses ethics over his master's wishes. The latter will not help the master in his evil goals and needs to be ejected from his circle of trusted aides. And that is all that matters - not morals and not ethics. And that is why Saudi Arabia was excluded and Iran was included in that infamous list. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The US was a good country until 1945 when it was suddenly pushed into the limelight. And as we all know, the limelight tends to make one lose one's head and that, in my view, is what has happened. There are good Americans and there are bad Americans just as there are good and bad people all over the world. But most of the world has tended to treat the ever more powerful US as a god. They have followed the American entertainment industry in promoting promiscuity and godlessness, instead of promoting Christian values. And that was a very big mistake. In matters of sex, the world is clearly going bonkers, thanks to the way shown by Hollywood and its ilk. If Western nations had turned to Christ, whom they have effectively abandoned, instead of the US for their values, it would be restored to its previous place in a matter of minutes. Christianity would prevail over the doctrine of hedonism which has taken hold of our senses. Likewise, non-Christian countries must also revive their own values embodied in the teachings of Buddhism, Confucius, Hinduism, Islam etc. instead of following the US blindly. We teach our children how to make money but we never encourage them to try and live by the teachings of their faith. For God's sake, let us get away from the mirage of the powerful elephant, which is destroying our world. Let us seek comfort in the teachings and values of religion, not of powerful and rich nations. Wealth and power belong to God alone. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If we turned away from the worldly goals of wealth and pleasure, I think, the world could be a much better place. A planet of true peace like none other in the solar system and beyond. Until then, I believe, we must learn to live in a very uncertain world, ruled by a puerile despot, that the US has become.
  3. Could somebody knowedgable here tell me what this is? i found it on twitter.What is this in regards to? is this something thats happening now? by the way the people who know what this actually please really answer.
  4. hello, I'd like to know if most of iranians are atheists or believers, and if young people believe in iran, someone knows? some people here have said that most of people that live in iran do believe in islam. thank you.
  5. Salam, Have you ever thought why the flag of truth will be with the yemani, and not with the khorasani? Both are devoted ahlulbayt lovers. My guess is because Iran turned into an some sort of papal state, and they embraced welayet - faqeh institution, which i regard as a step in the wrong direction and an innovation. What is your opinion?

    Friends from Iran

    ASA I am from Pakistan and I want to make new friends from Iran. anyone willing to be my friend here?
  7. Salam all, Just finished my sixth vlog on Youtube called "Can Iran Still Trust Russia?" which deals with the purchase of the S-300 system and Russia's attitude vis-a-vis Iran. Let me know what you think. Watch it here: More detailed description of the video: After nine years, Russia delivered Almaz-Antey's S300 missile to Iran in April, 2016. But why the delay? Find out here. The political détente between Iran and Russia began in 1989. In that year, Russian Foreign Minister Shevardnadze met Ayatollah Khomeini after the Soviet pullout in Afghanistan. A few months later, president Rafsanjani met with Mikhail Gorbachev to discuss cooperation on the use of peaceful atomic energy. These series of meetings spawned atomic cooperation agreements to be signed in 1992. The Soviet Union's weakness and its ultimate dissolution accelerated calls within Russia to revive Russia's nuclear industry abroad. From the mid-2000s, both countries had seen relations deteriorate. In Iran, the deregulation of the Khatami administration shifted towards an autarky-minded Ahmadinejad government insisting on Iran autonomously developing a full nuclear cycle. Russia's buildup after the Soviet collapse left it desperate to maintain Iran as a purchasing market. The Russians provided Iran with light-water nuclear reactors (LWRS) in 1992, the Bushehr plant was reconstructed through a $1 billion contract in 1995 and other side agreements included the negotiated delivery of a gas-centrifuge uranium enrichment facility. With the prospects of an increasingly independent Iran ahead and rapprochement with Washington, Russia decided to punish the Iranians through various international mechanisms. The delay of the S300 therefore serves as a case study illuminating the selfish economic interests of two states on the one hand, and the indifference by Russia to enhance regional security on the other.

    [TRASH PIT]Flat Earth

    Flat Earth Model Belief assumed earth was completely flat Day and night could not happen simultaneously Earth fixed and sun orbiting the earth Myths were ripe surrounding where the sun set and rose from Model could only support a single sunrise and sunset point Model could not support different time zones across the world Spherical Earth Model Earth is almost spherical with a few minor exceptions around the poles Earth orbits the SUN Earth is spinning to give us day and night simultaneously SUN is static relative to the earth Each point on earth has its own sunrise and sunset point Different time zones supported across the world Before I present the verses of the Quran that describes the earth, I will start of with the following verse. Sura Az-Zukhruf (43:3) We verily, have made it a Qur'ân in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). This verse is clearly telling us that the Quran is meant to be easily understood and not what Dr Naik assumes, by taking us around the universe. Galaxies were not understood at the time the Quran was revealed and hence would have confused the people at the time. Also, as you will notice, all suras I have pointed out were revealed in Makkah, at a time when the prophet was under immense pressure to explain every verse of the Quran clearly. Naik is using fallacy and creating his own science in the Quran. These are the Descriptive verses Sura Al-Kahf (18:47) And (remember) the Day We shall cause the mountains to pass away (like clouds of dust), and you will see the earth as a levelled plain, and we shall gather them all together so as to leave not one of them behind. Sura Taha (20:53) Who has made earth for you like a bed (spread out); and has opened roads (ways and paths etc.) for you therein; and has sent down water (rain) from the sky. And We have brought forth with it various kinds of vegetation. Sura Az-Zukhruf (43:10) Who has made for you the earth like a bed, and has made for you roads therein, in order that you may find your way. Sura Az-Zukhruf (43:38) Till, when (such a one) comes to Us, he says [to his Qarîn (Satan / devil companion)] "Would that between me and you were the distance of the two easts (or the east and west)" a worst (type of) companion (indeed)! Sura An-Naba (78:6) Have We not made the earth as a bed, Sura An-Naziat (79:30) And after that He spread the earth; These verses would only be applicable to a flat earth belief Sura An-Naml (27:61) Is not He (better than your gods) Who has made the earth as a fixed abode, and has placed rivers in its midst, and has placed firm mountains therein, and has set a barrier between the two seas (of salt and sweet water).Is there any ilâh (god) with Allâh? Nay, but most of them know not. Sura Al-Kahf (18:86) Until, when he reached the setting place of the sun, he found it setting in a spring of black muddy (or hot) water. And he found near it a people. We (Allâh) said (by inspiration): "O Dhul-Qarnain! Either you punish them, or treat them with kindness." Sura Al-Kahf (18:90) Until, when he came to the rising place of the sun, he found it rising on a people for whom We (Allâh) had provided no shelter against the sun. Sura Yasin (36:38) And the sun runs on its fixed course for a term (appointed). That is the Decree of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing. Sura Yasin (36:40) It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor does the night outstrip the day. They all float, each in an orbit. All these verses support a Flat earth model that the Quran is describing. I strongly encourage you to read these Suras in their entirety, to prove to yourself that I have not taken or used any verse out of context. If you feel that I have missed any verses which describe or support a spherical model, please provide me the verses from the Quran. Any imaginations not supported by a verse from the Quran will NOT be acceptable.
  9. Syed Mohammad Abbas Ali

    Shajrah Help

    I am Syed Abbas Ali and belongs to the family of Imam Jafar Sadiq. Basically My grand father had lost a major portion of our shajrah while migrating to Pakistan, and only a part containing 10 generations before me is left with him. None of his children (my uncles and my father) tried to complete it and he died when I was 2. My Far related grandfather (3rd Cousin to my grandfather) told me that My grandfather did tried to get the whole Shajrah back but was failed in this attempt as those of our relative in India and Lahore refused to provide us with that in fear of some sort of Property. Actually he is the one who told me that we belonged to Syed Qutb descendants who was descendant of Imam Jafar Saddiq and came from Iran or Afghanistan. My grandfather used to live in Jabalpur before seperation and his ancestors in Meeranpur, Jansath Tehsil, India. I tried to look back those Syeds in Meeranpur but found that They were Zaidis. Now I am totally Confused. I looked at a complete shajrah of Zaidis but couldn't find my ancestors name in it so we definitely belong to Jafris. "Syed Abbas s/o Syed Akhtar s/o Syed Aashiq s/o Syed Amjad s/o Syed Hasan s/o Syed Qasim s/o Syed Ameen s/o Syed Lal s/o Syed Dadan s/o Syed Qasim----- Syed Qutb (not mentioned but told to me)" Do anyone know Any book which has a complete shajrah of Jafris?? like those of Zaidis named "Shajrah Saadat e Barha"?? I am very Hopeful that you'll surely help me out. One thing I like to mention is that I'm a Sunni as my ancestors converted to Sunnism due to Taqiyya but many traditions and beliefs of Shia still exist in my family today. Please Anyone Help me.

    Secular Iranian on secular fanaticism

    Atheism: A Non-believing Shi'i’s Perspective Both my grandmothers were believing Twelver Shi'i Muslims (Ithna Asharis). One of them performed the five daily prayers every day of her life, always wore a flowery headscarf to cover her hair and the other fitted her pilgrimage to Mecca (Hajj) in her travel itinerary around the world. Despite five-six decades of age difference my grandmothers did share my belief in the removal of religion, militarism, inequality, greed and corruption from the state. Perhaps because I have now become a mother I now realize how much we have learned from our mothers and grandmothers. Much has changed in our lives and in moral and normative configurations from one generation to another. I am an atheist, an anti-racist feminist, a non-believing Shi’i. To me being an atheist does mean respecting religiously devout and pious people, most of whom are our own family members, friends, students, colleagues and neighbors. I write about atheism because I want to separate it from secular fanaticism, especially of the Islamophobic sort championed by Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Bill Maher et al, who are as hateful and dogmatic as the minority they claim to oppose in the name of freedom and democracy. I believe that religious states are dictatorial and abusive because of the male elite who hold onto power and formulate ideologies that uses and abuses already deeply patriarchal religions. The more agonized a region, the more extremist does such ideologies and practices become (the Judaism of Israeli settlers in the Occupied Territories is a clear example of this). As the daughter of Iranian refugees who fled their homeland because of a repressive and selectively “religious” state, I believe ignorant trashing of peoples’ religious beliefs is morally and ethically wrong. It is also discriminatory, dangerous, racist and can ultimately lead to violence. One can never judge or assume that a person or even a group is oppressed OR oppressive based solely on their religion and more commonly these days by their external appearances. Women, children and even grown men are tragically abused with or without wearing a headscarf, or a sheitel, a yarmulke, the choir dress, a wimple, a cape, an apron, a bonnet, the saffron robe, or a turban. So before categorically belittling, humiliating and/or discriminating against religious, pious or spiritual folks, I suggest self-righteous atheists (among whom also resides the good, the bad, and the ugly) get themselves educated, read good books, travel, interact with diverse groups of people to learn about our world and the underlying reasons for the troubles in it (poverty, patriarchy, geopolitics, militarism etc)—This definitely means laying off searching Google for easy answers in the violent passages found in the Bible, the Talmud or the Qur’an. For the Iranian constituency of secular fundamentalists, I recommend they try remembering the religion of their grandparents, their kind neighbors, their local grocers, medieval and modern poets and stop applying their own very specific historical, class-based, Iran-centered experiences on millions of people across the globe.

  11. Iran art exhibition uses culture to bridge Middle East divides Rare show of bonhomie in a region blighted by conflict and rivalries November 11, 2016 by: Najmeh Bozorgmehr in Tehran The Land of the Solidities, an abstract oil painting of a fully veiled Arab woman by Mounirah Mosly, a Saudi artist, hangs near an untiled piece by the late Sohrab Sepehri, one of Iran’s best known poets and painters. The fact that the works are displayed at the same exhibition in Tehran provides a rare show of bonhomie in a region blighted by conflict and bitter rivalries. For Iran the event is unique — it is the first time that the predominantly Persian state has hosted such a public display of Arab art. The organisers touted it as an opportunity to use culture to bridge some of the regional divides, and it is notable that two works from Saudi Arabia — Iran’s regional foe — are on the display. Karim Sultan, curator at the Sharjah-based Barjeel Art Foundation that put on The Sea Suspended exhibition, says the exhibition is about “continuing the conversation with the Arab world.” Ehsan Rasoulof, the director of Mohsen Gallery, one of Iran’s avant-garde art galleries, concurs, saying art should transcend the Middle East’s problems. “In this crisis-hit region where we live, an art dialogue is the responsibility of artists, despite all the tensions between us and our neighbours,” Mr Rasoulof says. Riyadh cut diplomatic ties with the Islamic republic in January after its embassy in Tehran was ransacked by Iranian hardliners protesting against the Saudi government’s execution of a dissident Shia cleric. Iran and Saudi Arabia — the region’s dominant Shia and Sunni powers respectively — back rival sides in conflicts in Syria and Yemen as they fight proxy wars, and are blamed for stoking sectarian tensions across the Arab world. In the volatile environment, Sadegh Kharrazi, a renowned Iranian art collector and a former ambassador to the UN and France, says culture can be a tool of diplomacy. The exhibition — held at the state-run Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art — was “a step forward for helping make people in the region closer to each other,” he says. “Tensions should decrease and artists are well-positioned to fill the gap between people in the region and politicians,” he adds. The exhibition includes 40 paintings covering a period from the 1940s to 1990s by Arab artists from countries including Egypt, Morocco, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates and Algeria. There are an equal number of Iranian pieces on display. The theme of the exhibition reflects on the emergence of abstract Arab art and the artists’ experiences of everyday life. It is being held at a time when President Hassan Rouhani’s centrist government is seeking to repair the nation’s image and re-engage with the world following its landmark nuclear agreement last year that saw many western sanctions on the Islamic republic lifted. Yet not all share the government’s enthusiasm for culture. Regime hardliners — based in the elite Revolutionary Guards, the judiciary and the clergy — have put increasing pressure on Mr Rouhani to keep a lid on cultural freedom. Their resistance forced the president to dismiss his pro-reform culture minister, Ali Jannati, last month. It is not yet clear yet if the pressure will cause the government to be more restrictive in the cultural sphere as the country gears up for elections next year, with Mr Rouhani hoping to secure a second term. Mr Kharrazi, a pro-reform politician, says Mr Rouhani “has no intention to restrict cultural developments”. And for now, the decisions taken under the former culture minister appear to be continuing. Iran will send 30 works from its large collection of western modern artists to be exhibited at Berlin’s Gemäldegalerie museum in December, and then to the MAXXI museum in Rome, where they will be on display until August 2017. It is the first time the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art has allowed some of the more than 1,500 western artworks it owns go on display outside the republic. They were bought before the 1979 Islamic revolution on the orders of Queen Farah, wife of the last Shah of Iran. The collection remains the most valuable western visual art collection outside Europe and North America, Iranian experts say, with the largest element being post-second world war works by US expressionist artists, including Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. But the nuclear accord, which came into effect in January, was not sealed in time for an exhibition in the US, says Majid Mollanorouzy, director of the Tehran museum. “We decided to choose countries with which we have less political tensions,” he says. This article has been updated to reflect the fact that Barjeel Art is based in Sharjah not Dubai.

  13. Salaam all, As we reflect on the tragic events 1400 years ago due to the dictator in Damascus, let us ponder on the inconvenient but truth of tragic events of today from the dictator of Damascus today. Yazid wanted his power at all costs even if it meant killing Imam Husain (as) and his family members. Like 70 of the Prophet's descendants killed by Yazid, perhaps thousands of the Prophet's descendants have been killed among the up to 500,000 Syrians killed by Assad who also wants to keep power at all costs. So sad that Iran has been instrumental in continuing to support this mass murdering war criminal. And sad that Iran wants to keep Assad's family in power although this sect is outside of Islam since their doctrine is that Imam Ali (s) is God (astaghfirullah, astaghriullah, astaghrifullah). May we all pray for peace in Syria so the efforts of the Syrian people who went to the streets for democracy is answered by Allah. May the region be protected from the terrorists of ISIS and other terrorists and may it also be free of the continued tyranny of Assad and his family who is receiving massive and continued support of Iran, Hezbollah, Iraq militia members, and Russia in killing Syrian civilians and making life for Syrians a living monstrosity. Sometimes the truth is inconvenient but as Muslims, we must acknowledge the truth and speak out or at least pray to Allah for forgiveness for our sectarian and political weaknesses in pointing out the truth. And may we pray for Allah to grant justice to all and to grant everyone knowledge, forgiveness, mercy, goodness, and the commitment to justice and courage so as to accept truths no matter how inconvenient they are. May we fully return to the only source that is fully authentic, the guidance of Allah in the Qur'an that he sent down to us all. May we not allow secondary and partially corrupted Islamic sources and politically rabid and sectarian leaders and mobs to dilute the truth that is in the Qur'an. Ameen.

  15. Iranian warships deployed off Yemen coast after US bombs Houthi targets Iran has deployed a fleet of warships to the Gulf of Aden, the republic's naval commander has confirmed. The deployment follows US cruise missile strikes on Yemeni positions thought to be under Houthi rebel control. https://www.rt.com/news/362643-iran-warships-yemen-aden/
  16. Iranian ships in Gulf of Aden: How far might Yemen escalation go? RT: Now there are Iranian warships in the Gulf of Aden. How far might this escalation over Yemen go? Sayed Mohammad Marandi: I don’t think this is all that important. The Iranians have a permanent presence in that part of the world because of the problems with shipping thanks to the American policies over the past few decades. There is a lot of instability in the Red Sea. And the Iranian ships are there basically to prevent pirates from boarding Iranian ships. They’ve been doing this for a number of years now. The Iranians have also protected the ships of other countries as well. The problem really is the US presence. Iranians are confident the Americans are lying about missile attacks on American vessels. They say this is a fabricated story that the US could enter the fray on behalf of Saudi Arabia to boost Saudi morale. Because after all the Saudis after bombing weddings, funerals, schools and hospitals despite the fact that the Western media is completely silent about it and Western leaders like Boris Johnson don’t seem to care about the Yemenis who are being massacred in the country. But despite all that the Saudis are losing the war. They have lost the war. And the Yemeni resistance, the Houthis and Ansar Allah and the Yemeni army they have succeeded in defeating Saudi-backed forces and Saudi forces on the border between Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The Iranians feel that their presence is one to help facilitate trade and shipping while the American presence as in the past few decades is only serving to create further chaos. RT: Isn’t it a danger here that now both sides will see each other as a threat?I MM: The Iranians believe that the Americans have already lost the war in Yemen. Their support for Saudi Arabia has failed. And the Americans are just as responsible for the atrocities in Yemen as is the Saudi regime. The American president has blood on his hands just like the Saudi King, Crown Prince and the Deputy Crown Prince. The Iranians feel the Americans are not really in a position to escalate further. What they want to do is put pressure on Ansar Allah so that the Saudis could negotiate from a stronger position. And also I think in order to increase pressure on the US after the Saudi regime deliberately targeted the funeral killing 150 people and injuring hundreds more. A lot of people in the West have been increasingly protesting in the media and otherwise against America’s support for the Wahhabi regime https://www.rt.com/op-edge/362805-iran-us-yemen-saudi-gulf/
  17. The conflict in Syria is part of Washington’s prime goal to impose global hegemony, President Bashar Assad told a Russian newspaper. Terrorists in Syria, he said, are being used by the US and its Gulf allies to assert control over the region, primarily to weaken Iran. In the Syrian conflict, the US is using terrorists to achieve its own and its allies’ objectives in the wider Middle East, the main goal of which is to weaken Damascus’ regional ally – Iran. In 2011, when the Syrian conflict began, world powers were negotiating with Iran over its atomic enrichment program. “It was the main issue around the world, and Syria has to convince Iran to go against its interests, that time. France tried, Saudi Arabia wanted us at that time to be away from Iran with no reason, just because they hate Iran,”Assad said, adding that Damascus received offers to that end after the conflict started in Syria. “The offers [from Saudi Arabia] started after the crisis ... because they wanted to use the crisis ... 'if you do this, we're going to help you'... that if you move away from Iran and you announce that you disconnect all kinds of relations with Iran, we’re going to help you.

  19. Saudi Arabia, allies no match for Iran on battlefield: Commander Iran's chief Armed Forces spokesman says Saudi Arabia and its allies are too weak to engage in a military confrontation with the Islamic Republic. “Saudi Arabia has by no means the capability to confront Iran and [in fact] not only Saudi Arabia, but its allies are also incapable of confrontation with the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Deputy Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces, Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri, said in response to a question by reporters on Monday. He added that Saudi Arabia “counts for nothing [against Iran] and is no match for the Islamic Republic of Iran in the region to aspire entering military scenes.” “The Americans also lack such a capability and will,” the Iranian commander pointed out. http://presstv.com/Detail/2016/10/10/488458/Iran-Saudi-Arabia-US-Armed-Forces-Massoud-Jazayeri
  20. http://www.aparat.com/v/ps1xy/الله_الله_نوحه_متفاوت_هیئت_کوچه_بیوک_یزدمحسن_زاده Salam Many of my friends found this Noha so nice and touching but I found it an irrelevant and not appropriate Noha. I just don't understand why they chose such an irrelevant poem. Just listen to the singer!!! when he sings: "you should go under the rain!" it is a part of a poem written by "Sohrab Sepehri" who is a contemporary poet and has nothing to do with Muharram or even religion.
  21. Is there anyone here from Iran I want to ask things from him/her.
  22. I dont know this person nor am I affiliated with this in any way. The date has already passed but they might accommodate.
  23. Coming up shortly the headlines will read : al saud have declared their true religion-Zionism...... https://www.rt.com/news/361408-saudi-arabia-austerity-calendar/
  24. Women in Iran defy fatwa by riding bikes in public 21 September 2016 From the sectionMiddle East Share Image copyrightFACEBOOK / MY STEALTHY FREEDOM Women in Iran have been posting photos on social media of themselves riding bicycles, defying a fatwa forbidding them from cycling in public. It had been understood women that could cycle as long as religious concerns were respected. But when asked recently, Iran's Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, said women were not allowed to cycle in public or in the presence of strangers. The issue came into focus earlier this year, when campaigners in Iran began marking "car-free Tuesdays" to encourage people to leave their cars at home in the hope of cutting down on pollution. When women were seen taking part in campaign bike rides, it was frowned upon by some Iranian clerics. Now, Iranian women have been using social media to highlight the subject, adding the hashtag #IranianWomenLoveCycling. Image copyrightFACEBOOK / MY STEALTHY FREEDOM Campaigning women A video a mother and daughter filmed of themselves cycling in Iran has had 98,000 views since it was posted on My Stealthy Freedom's Facebook page on Monday. Campaign founder Masih Alinejad, who is based in New York, said: "They told me that they are not going to give up because they think biking is their absolute right. Image copyrightINSTAGRAM / MY STEALTHY FREEDOM "It is absolutely shameful to hear such a backward fatwa against women in the 21st Century. "It is unacceptable in 2016 when you hear that a group of female cyclists have been arrested in Iran for the crime of riding a bike in a public place and made to sign a pledge promising they will not cycle in public again. "I called on women through my Instagram account to share their reaction, and I received so many photos and videos of women cycling." Image copyrightINSTAGRAM / MY STEALTHY FREEDOM "I've received messages from inside Iran from women who are shocked and want to protest." In another video, a female cyclist is seen saying some men had said some "nasty things" about her as she had ridden past them. Ms Alinejad said: "The activity does not have a defined penalty in Iran's legal code, but modesty laws are used against women who cycle in public. "Women in Iran want to be active in society - but, for the clerics, that's a big threat because, in their eyes women, should not be seen or heard but stuck in the kitchen. "It is our basic right to be able to freely cycle. "I strongly believe that these acts will bring change. "Women are the main agents of change, and as they push for equality, we see greater push back from the Islamic Republic [of Iran]. "The fight for equality is a historical process, and just in the same way that women succeeded in Europe and the US to win their rights, so will women in Iran."
