In the second night of Muharram at Sayyed Al-Shuhadaa complex in the Southern suburb of Beirut, Sheikh Qassem voiced the party’s readiness to take part in a dialogue between the Lebanese powers, stressing that Hezbollah rejects all aspects of sedition, Al-Manar reported.
A senior Iranian official says Muslims must move to arm the Palestinian resistance in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
Speaking at an international conference in support of Palestine in Tehran on Tuesday, Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior advisor to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, said the Palestinian people should be strong and capable of defending themselves as the only ways to ease their sufferings.
“Unity of all groups and resistance against enemies either the regional enemy, that is the Zionist regime [of Israel], or the international enemy, that is the US, are imperative,” Velayati added.
He described Israel as an “illegitimate and dangerous” regime, saying the term, “apartheid,” cannot properly define the Tel Aviv regime’s criminal acts against the Palestinians. Continue reading Apartheid is too little a word for “Tel Aviv”: Top Iranian official

More than $250 million dollars were given annually to Hamas by Tehran. This allowed the movement to continue and resist international sanctions. However, this amount has become irrelevant after the latest war, which proved that Palestinians are only able to defend themselves through self-made weapons and supplies by the axis of Resistance to Gaza.
The relationship between Hamas and Iran goes back to 1991 and has grown gradually until the beginning of the crisis in Syria. Hamas took several positions, which distanced it from the axis. But today, the movement admits it has lost so much. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt could no longer be of any help and Gaza does not share borders with Qatar or Turkey. Doha and Ankara’s largest ambitions for a Palestinian state is one inside the 1967 borders, which is the demand of Fatah, while only Iran dares to speak about the total liberation of Palestine.

Jesus Christ (A.S.), revered by Christians and Muslims alike as the Messiah, and cherished by Muslims as the most important prophet in Islam after the Holy Prophet Muhammad himself (S.A.W.W.), famously declared in the 24th verse of the Book of Matthew’s 6th chapter that, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.”
Once it is understood that Messiah Jesus (A.S.) did not declare war on “Roman imperialism” as so many deceptive Jewish “historians” would like us to believe, and that his revolution was a spiritual one waged to end the Jewish supremacism of the deranged ethnocentric-nationalistic Zealots and the twisted, vastly-powerful rabbinical cabal of the Pharisees (1), an ideology still very much alive and well in modern day (2), the “Two Masters” principle becomes all the more prevalent to current geopolitical happenings, specifically in regards to occupied Palestine.

The war launched by Israel against the Gaza Strip and its resistance forces has been brutal on the military and intelligence levels, but Israel has not managed to completely shut down weapons supply lines into the Strip. The Palestinian resistance has even received a considerable amount of long-range missiles from Hezbollah in the past several days.
The flow of weapons into the Gaza Strip continues, according to sources familiar with the Palestinian resistance logistics, despite the ongoing Israeli assault on the Strip and Syria’s compromised role as a conduit for weapons.
As the conflict enters its sixth day, Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard units specialized in smuggling weapons from Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Sudan, and other countries into the Gaza Strip are on high alert.
These weapons usually begin their journey in Iranian or Syrian ports. From there, they head to Sudan, where they are transported to the Sinai in Egypt and end up in Gaza. Continue reading How Hamas Gets Its Weapons

The head of Iran’s Quds Force, Gen. Qasem Soleimani, has returned to Iran from his Iraq trip with harsh words for both the Islamic State (IS) militants that overran parts of Iraq and the United States and its coalition.
Soleimani’s trip to Iraq to advise Iraqi forces fighting IS was unusually public for a general who has issued very few statements and given even fewer interviews throughout his career. From early September all the way through last week, numerous pictures of the commander, who Western media organizations often call “shadowy,” posing with Iraqi forces and sometimes even smiling for the camera appeared on Twitter, Facebook and Iranian websites.
The sheer quantity of pictures of Soleimani in Iraq with various armed groups seemed a like an Iranian message to neighboring countries and the United States and its coalition that Iran had boots on the ground while they did not. Continue reading All Eyes On Soleimani

The United Kingdom. That gleaming beacon of democracy. That illuminating shimmer of human rights. That incandescent emanation of justice. That grand representative of the poor, downtrodden and marginalized. That empire of benevolence which stands out in the history of not-so-benevolent empires. That crux of all that is good in a world gone so, so very bad.
An assessment of the utmost accuracy, right?
Wrong. Dead wrong.
More like that putrid vassal of World Jewry. That effervescently vile regime of “shabbos goyim”. That repugnant gang of invaders, occupiers, oppressors and Zionist-serving hellspawn.

Is it not astounding, nay, the very apogee of mind-boggling, that “democracy”, the globe’s dominant political model, in which “freedom of speech” is a central if not foundational tenet, is vehemently and vitriolically doing all that it can, wherever its outposts are throughout the world, to silence, nay, eradicate, one particular criticism and ipso facto anyone who has the nobleness to promulgate the aforesaid criticism?
“Imperialism”? Fire away! “White supremacy”? Have at it! “Capitalism”? Sky is the limit! “Dictatorship”? Here’s an appearance on “Democracy Now”! Malevolent social injustices like police brutality, political corruption, patriarchy, gentrification, environmental abuses, etcetera? By all means, preach and don’t stop preaching! But the moment an individual takes a deep breath, performs a swift trip around the earth in his or her mind, and sees with his or her mind’s eye that there is a common insidiousness, a parent evil if you will, that permeates every ill and injustice from north to south and east to west, and he or she then calls it out by name and slams it with a thunderous condemnation, that is when the rubicon is crossed.

Tehran, SANA – Supreme Military Advisor to the Supreme Leader’s Representative in the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Maj. Gen. Yadollah Javani renewed Iran’s full support to the Syrian people and government in confronting the conspiracy hatched against it and combating the terrorist organizations.
Javani said in an interview with Iranian Alalam TV on Sunday that the Syrian people’s resilience and their standing by the Syrian army have enabled them to confront the “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria” (ISIS) terrorist organization and other similar organizations.
He pointed out that the Turkish government’s involvement in supporting ISIS helped the terrorist organization expand in some areas in Syria and Iraq, clarifying that Turkey’s priority is not battling with ISIS, particularly that Ankara has contributed to founding this terrorist organization and many others.
