    Protesters in Iran may be bolstering U.S. imperialism

    NORTH CAROLINA - From afar it can be upsetting to hear about protests at some universities in Iran, allegedly spawned by anger over the unintentional downing of the commercial aircraft near Tehran. One can understand the anger over the horrible accident of mistaken identity, but let’s get real about this tragic event.

    It must be always emphasized: Allah’s mercy and compassion

    NORTH CAROLINA - Amid the madness, one thing is indisputable. Trump and Netanyahu are joined at the hip in part because both face the prospect, however remote, of eventually winding up in jail. Trump has been impeached but getting him out of the White House before November is a stretch, Natanyahu has been indicted on multiple corruption charges. Both think they avoid jail as long as they are in office. They planned and executed the demise of Soleimani through their respective appointees alongside the Mossad and the CIA.

    Is there going to be a war between Hezbollah and Tel Aviv?

    Lebanon and Palestine share a 79-kilometer-long border that has suffered from tensions at different times due to the Zionist regime’s expansionist policies. Israel’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon in 2000, was not the end of its aggression in the border areas with Lebanon, as it still has occupied parts of the country.

    A Turning Point 

    In what is widely considered a US act of terrorism, President Trump ordered an assassination team  to eliminate  Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, leader of the foreign wing of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, commander of part of Iraqi’s national defence force on a road leading to Baghdad International Airport on Jan. 2, 2020.

    America shoots itself in the foot

    LONDON - Following the U.S. President’s approval of the assassination of Iran’s top general, head of IRGC Quds Force Qassem Soleimani, the U.S. bombed a car carrying him in early Friday morning, shortly after he arrived at Iraq’s Baghdad airport. The strike also killed Iraqi militia commander, deputy chief of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and at least 6 other people who were with them.

The voters know not what they did focusing far too much on demands that the country leave the EU, which the winner, Boris Johnson, has pledged to execute early in 2020 while at the same time Labor waffled amid suggestions of holding another referendum on Brexit.

    Post-modern slavery: fetal chromosomal slavery

    Just think about it. Several years ago, right here on Earth, people were sold at auctions and forcibly employed in fields and mines. Many were chained to prevent fleeing, and whipping was the most common punishment for their smallest mistakes. All of these were only because of the color of their skin, just because they were black.
