Discovering Iran: Women’s Rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran

Iran Trip:  September – October 2014

Marcel Proust said: “The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”  During the past two decades, I visited Iran on numerous occasions staying 10-14 days at a time.  This time around, I stayed for 2 months and heeding Proust, I carried with me a fresh pair of eyes.    I discarded both my Western lenses as well as my Iranian lenses and observed with objective eyes.  It was a formidable journey that left me breathless.  

Part I – Women of the Islamic Republic of Iran

It is hard to know where to start a travel log and how to describe a newfound world in a few pages.  However, given the obsession with the status of women, it is perhaps appropriate to start with the women in Iran as I perceived them.

Western media with help from feminists and Iranians living outside of Iran portray Iranian women as being “oppressed” — foremost because women in Iran have to abide by an Islamic dress code – hijab.   Yes, hijab is mandatory and women choose to either wear either a chador or to wear a scarf.   But what is crucial to understand is the role chador played in pre 1979 versus the post Revolution era.

The West is silent as Libya falls into the abyss

by Patrick Cockburn, The Independent

Remember the time when Libya was being held up by the American, British, French and Qatari governments as a striking example of benign and successful foreign intervention? It is worth looking again at film of David Cameron grandstanding as liberator in Benghazi in September 2011 as he applauds the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi and tells the crowd that “your city was an example to the world as you threw off a dictator and chose freedom”.

Obama’s preventive coup in Burkina Faso

by Wayne Madsen, Strategic Culture

After a popular uprising forced Burkina Faso’s longtime dictator Blaise Compaoré from power after a 27-year long reign supported by the United States and France, President Barack Obama had to move fast. The White House wanted to ensure that loyalists of Compaoré’s assassinated predecessor, Marxist icon Thomas Sankara, a man his mother, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) / Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) maven Ann Dunham Soetoro, may have helped to topple in 1987, did not return to power in the landlocked West African nation.

Burkinabe Masses Rise Up Against Neo-Colonial Rule

by Abayomi Azikiwe, Modern Ghana

Hundreds of thousands of people in Burkina Faso have forced the longtime imperialist-backed leader, President Blaise Compaore, to resign amid mass demonstrations and rebellions in several cities across the West African country. Compaore took power in a French-supported coup on Oct. 15, 1987 against revolutionary Pan-Africanist and socialist leader Capt. Thomas Sankara.

New World Order: An Overview of the Underworld​, Part 1

by Trevor LaBonte (Mouqawamah Music EXCLUSIVE)

The international Zionist banksters who control and implement the New World Order and own and control all the major publishing houses, academic institutions, news and entertainment media have paved over real history with a fraudulent, totally false, and self-serving narrative.

This false narrative constitutes the very essence, the psychological concrete of the NWO, with all of its power over us not so much existing in the outside world, but living in our minds. It repeats in an infinite loop, playing on a cinema screen in both our conscious and subconscious minds.  In fact, much of it was placed there in our minds using various false memory-implanting techniques and trauma-based CIA MK-ultra mind control tricks regularly employed in Hollywood films. More on this later though. Continue reading New World Order: An Overview of the Underworld​, Part 1

The Devil in the Details: Netanyahu’s 100 Year War against ‘militant’ Islam as the death blow to Western Civilization

by Mark Glenn, The Ugly Truth

The most dangerous thing about Benjamin Netanyahu–and no one should make the mistake of thinking he’s anything otherwise–is that he appears ‘normal’ by human standards. He speaks with a ‘human’ voice, seems to have all the required ‘human’ hardware & behaviorisms and in general is able to pass muster in his daily interactions with others. Best guess is that he has skin rather than scales, eyelids rather than slits, and doesn’t slither on his belly from point A to point B…

The truth however is that all of this ‘humanism’–for lack of a better word–attributed to/associated with Netanyahu is just an illusion of sorts, and the world–for the sake of its own collective life and limb–would be best served by turning a blind eye and deaf ear towards black magic such as this.

Despite a few outward superficialities, there is nothing ‘human’ about ‘Bibi’, nor about those who hold membership in his exclusive streetgang.

Putin’s Russia: A real counterweight to US power is a global necessity

Seumas Milne, The Guardian

Where is the end of history now? Across three continents, conflicts are multiplying. An arc of war, foreign intervention and state breakdown stretches from Afghanistan to north Africa.

In Iraq and Syria, the so-called Islamic State – mutant offspring of the war on terror – is now the target of renewed US-led intervention. In Ukraine, thousands have died in the proxy fighting between Russian-backed rebels and the western-sponsored Kiev government. And in the far east, tensions between China, Japan and other US allies are growing. Continue reading Putin’s Russia: A real counterweight to US power is a global necessity

The Sorosazzi Do Protest Too Much: Disentangling the case of Reyhaneh Jabbari in Iran from its Western memeocracy

by N Wahid Azal, Center For Syncretic Studies

502377f the Italian term paparazzi (first coined by Federico Fellini in his film La Dolce Vita)[1] has gained a certain notoriety of meaning in our times, it is perhaps time to coin a similar neologism that accurately reflects the partiality and double-standards of those elite Western (corporate controlled) faux-left, liberal mainstream discourses on human rights. 46v113524031These are those mainstream and mass media discourses advanced by the Anglo-European Transatlantic West deliberately designed with specific intent, thus opportunistically crafted, to misrepresent, misinform or otherwise disinform regarding occurrences of certain cause celebres (particularly when they happen to be publicized legal cases) happening among rival societies, governments or polities which these Transatlantic elites happen not to like at any given time, such as, for example, the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The Bear and Dragon Chronicles – Western Myopia

by Eric Kraus, Russian Insider

The attentive reader will have noted an odd transformation in the Western narrative regarding Russia-China relations – the Bear and Dragon story which the current author has been arguing for over the past 15 years:

Six months ago, the Western media were in unison, laughing off the suggestion that the Bear and Dragon could find an entente – much less a true alliance. The two countries were divided by a difficult history, unbridgeable cultural differences, and divergent economic geostrategic interests. Continue reading The Bear and Dragon Chronicles – Western Myopia

Soros and CIA Suffer Huge Defeat in Brazil

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Mouqawamah Music would also like to add to Madsen’s spot-on analysis that in addition to all of the Zionist media outlets he mentioned, Business Insider — founded by CFR-HRW -Goldman-Sachs stalwart Kevin P. Ryan — also lashed out at President Dilma Rousseff’s reelection. Very clear that the vulture-ultra-capitalist elites of World Zionism are seething over this Global South triumph. ~ Jonathan Azaziah)  Continue reading Soros and CIA Suffer Huge Defeat in Brazil
