    Iran has an integral role to play in Russian-South Asian connectivity

    Iran is geostrategically positioned to play an integral role in Russian-South Asian connectivity. President Putin told the Valdai Club during its annual meeting in October 2019 that “there is one more prospective route, the Arctic – Siberia – Asia.

    TEHRAN- Today, most serious threats of the 21st century are not ones we can protect ourselves by using armies or advanced weapons. Indeed, the popularity of extreme-right politics, unilateralism based on nationalism and COVID-19 are threatening the world’s post-war security architecture.

    Tripoli riots: The third step to topple Lebanon

     A few days ago, one of my friend’s comments attracted my attention. He said: “America loves Lebanon, as much as Juha loves his stepmother”. Juha is an authentic Arab character, who is known for his exceptional anecdotes that grew as parables in people’s perceptions. He was an exceptional figure in the Arabic culture.

    Biden and the sweet legacy of Trump

    Many have written about the heavy legacy that Donald Trump has left for his successor Joe Biden. However, if we read well about the role the deep system plays in the U.S., it will be difficult to actually believe that. Trump, the clown, came for the purpose of rewriting the international agreements, which America had signed during Barak Obama’s presidency (2008- 2016).

    America has not been helping itself …

    It’s easy to get the impression that the people most set upon in the world now, really as never before, are the seven million or so people trapped in divided cantons inside historic Palestine with no civil rights, no vote, no official empathy and no resources to speak of except “samud”, an Arabic term for something like gutsy endurance in the face of pain.

    Let me start by saying something some may consider outrageous.  One day, not long from now, many may look back on the four years of Donald Trump’s presidency and consider it to be not just the worst choice Americans made, but, ironically, the best thing that happened to America and the world. Why? The U.S. needed Donald Trump to save it from itself.

    How should we remember General Soleimani?

    It is true that often, one can better assess a person by who their enemies were than by who were their friends. If we apply this maxim to the late General Qassem Soleimani, sadly assassinated by U.S. airstrike in January 2020, we see clearly that his enemies were the United States, Israel, and their allies in West Asia – Saudi Arabia and the Arab States.

    General Soleimani: Fighting globalism in the trenches

    General Qassem Soleimani was the leader in the field for Iran’s effort to rid West Asia and North Africa of the scourge of terrorism. Soleimani achieved major successes against Western-backed mercenary groups in Syria and Iraq. This ended when Soleimani was assassinated in a drone attack on January 3, 2020, on the orders of U.S. President Donald Trump. Officially, this assassination was lauded by Israel and the Saudi proxy government in Yemen.

    General Qassem Soleimani: Iconic martyr of the century

    “Due to his legendary courage, General Soleimani was loved and admired by nearly everyone, including many of his enemies”

    TEHRAN- The previous century (20th c.e., 14th h.) featured innumerable martyrs. But only a few of their names have been chiseled prominently into the tablets of world history. Mahatma Gandhi, John and Robert Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, and Sayyid Qutb were all murdered for standing up against evil. None were saints, much less prophets or imams. All led imperfect lives and had personal as well as intellectual flaws. Yet each became emblematic of a different facet of the struggle for God and the good against the forces of Satan that dominate the so-called modern world.

    Donald Trump has probably done more damage to the U.S. than any president ever has, and inciting the violent raid on the Capitol in Washington in which five people died and much physical damage was done is his last destructive act and the end of his political career.

To that effect, efforts to help the Zionist regime reach sustainable security constitute a principled policy of Washington.

    “Though we (the U.S.) spends a trillion dollars a year between our military and our intelligence and our “national security” circles, that trillion dollars has built, you know, things that can stop all the planes and the missiles and all kinds of things from other countries. But we missed the one thing other countries like China have deployed, which is not to fight at all, not firing a bullet or missile at all, but taking the U.S. out from within. And that’s what’s going on.”

    First, I would like to send my condolences to the Iranian people on the first anniversary of General Qassem Soleimani's death. This cowardly act is not a reflection of the general American public who would prefer peace with Iran. People immediately filled the streets across the country condemning Washington's actions and the potential war against Iran. I remember in Detroit alone we had several hundred people in attendance despite the bitterly cold weather.

This was a terrible barbaric act of war on a great and high standing general, who was the driving force in eliminating the U.S. and Western-funded terrorist group ISIS (DAESH).

    TEHRAN- On January 3, 2020, revered Iranian Quds Force freedom-fighting commander General Qassem Soleimani was martyred by Pentagon assassins on orders by the Trump regime’s hardliners — an act of cold-blooded murder of a beloved figure throughout much of the region. Deputy Head of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) Hashed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and others were martyred along with him.
