    Trump’s one opportunity left to survive with any positive legacy: dumping his Neocon, Zionist advisors

    NORTH CAROLINA - Well, for sure, the designation by Trump of the IRGC as a “terrorist” organization is a foolish move, but not Iran’s tit for tat response to it – designating the same for the U.S. central military command, or CENTCOM. This all can mostly present a warning for the remaining 5000 U.S. soldiers and diplomats in Iraq and the 2000 or so still lingering in Syria.

    The whole Islamic world is guilty

    TEHRAN - The horrible images massacre of Al-Noor mosque of Christchurch that shocked us all, were of course delightful for some.

    NORTH CAROLINA - Muslims worldwide can be proud that the most courageous and quite possibly, with tremendous luck and time, the most effective U.S. Congressional representative in years may turn out to be Ilhan Omar who won election from a district in Minnesota last November.

    Humanitarian assistance or military intervention in Haiti

    TEHRAN - During eighteenth century, France created a powerful export economy based upon slavery in Haiti. In 1730, the population of the Caribbean country was about 83 thousand and in 1789 there were more than 500 thousand people, of whom 450 thousand were slaves. Due to massive mortality and low birth rates among the slaves, France saved one million slave from Africa to Haiti between 1750 and 1789 to maintain their populations. In 1789, Haiti produced three quarters of the world's sugar.

    The U.S. may have created a pool of quicksand…and jumped in

    NORTH CAROLINA - It has been suggested that the various hostile moves initiated by the Trump administration against Venezuela and Iran, to cite just two countries under economic siege, is that the U.S. literally has no alternative. No alternative but to try to counter every single development anywhere that might diminish the concept (at the least) of America as the sole superpower and hegemon, as it has been especially since the fall of the Soviet Union. This, it has been argued, is because the U.S. is fundamentally tapped out financially (with over $22 trillion in debt and at least $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities) and must resort literally to stealing resources and power and demanding obeisance wherever it can be had wherever it may be waning.

    NORTH CAROLINA - The best possible slap in the face of the GOP and Trump and his gaggle of warmongering advisors and appointees arrived recently when the National Iranian American Council as well as the Democratic National Committee apparently adopted a resolution to return the U.S. to compliance with the JCPOA and suggests it is possible…should the Democrats manage win back the White House in late 2020.

Articles 15 reads as “The State shall not discriminate against any citizen on grounds of religion.” Accordingly in Article 16 which reads “No citizen shall, on grounds of religion, be discriminated against in respect of, any employment or office under the State.” But in reality, there is a different story for Muslim community.
