The head of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jaffari, has rejected claims by Iran’s top nuclear negotiator that the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the UN Security Council have made Iran more secure. Rather, Jaffari praised Iran’s defensive and military capabilities, which he said have allowed the nuclear negotiators to operate from a position of strength.
After a meeting of the top officials of the armed forces, Jaffari told reporters, “The strength of our diplomacy in the nuclear negotiations is indebted to the inspiration of the Islamic Revolution and the defensive and security powers of our system.” Continue reading IRGC denies negotiations are source of Iran’s security

Sectarianism, truly, is an aggressive, encroaching plague; large in scope, deep in reach and devastating in its overall effect, it contains the potential of metamorphosing into an all-consuming force. It was infamously utilized by the Rothschild-financed British Empire throughout all of its colonies as the most effective means of oppression; indeed, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei recently pointed out that the “wicked” regime in London is the “veteran expert of spreading divisions (1)”. Sectarianism was employed for decades by the usurping Zionist entity and the American regime to subdue and destabilize Iraq, beginning with the tyranny of Saddam Hussein, to the Mossad-CIA covert operations and death squads of the post-2003 invasion era (2), up until the Takfiri terrorists of the present day (3). The plague of sectarianism has also been used by the Jewish supremacist fanatics who created “Israel” from the very start of their Talmudic colonization project, all for the sake of driving a wedge between the indigenous Muslims and Christians of the Holy Land (4). But the most destructive form of sectarianism is that which comes from within, under the guise of “analysis” and “commentary”, especially during times as perilous and pivotal as these.

A senior Iranian cleric has denounced Israel’s acts of aggression against Palestinians, saying the Tele Aviv regime is pressing ahead with its project to Judaize al-Quds (Jerusalem).
“The Zionists don’t let Muslims into al-Quds, but instead let in extremist Jews and build houses for them so that they would not need military forces anymore,” Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati told worshippers at weekly Friday Prayers in Tehran.
He also hit out at a recent decision by Israel to set up 2,000 more settlement units in the West Bank, saying the move was part of a project to push Palestinians out of their homes. Continue reading Senior Iranian cleric slams Zionist entity’s Judaization bid

With so much turmoil and confusion cast onto the collective psyche of our world in general, one of the most sacred acts one can endeavor to embark upon is the Jihad. In the Arab and Islamic worlds, this one act has been grossly misrepresented, misunderstood and falsely as well as perniciously portrayed by the Jewish constructs of Hollywood, the Public ‘School System’, Book Publishing Companies, ‘Mainstream Media’, Western politicians and a host of other sundry groups and individuals who subversively operate under the auspices of ‘information’. There is indeed an intentionally skewed usage of what the true definition of the Jihad is, meant to further the hegemonic agenda of International Zionism. Having been exposed to Arab/Muslim peoples for a good portion of my life, this humble writer from an Indigenous background (Plains Cree, Blackfeet, Missouria, Choctaw) and having been involved in quite a few of my own tribal traditional ceremonies and ways, I would like to share a brief personal observation on the Jihad and its parallel in the Horse Cultures – i.e. Great Plains – The Crying For A Vision, or what the Lakota people refer to as the “Han’blech’ ya”. We refer to it in layman’s terms as “Going on the Hill”. One of the Seven Sacred Rites given to the Great Plains Pnaci people by Pte Stan Win (White Buffalo Calf Woman).

(EDITOR’S NOTE: West African Muslims traveled to the ‘Americas’, long before colonial Europe, establishing trade routes and cultural exchange through peaceful collaboration with the Natives of the lands. Many historians ignore this evidence to support the narrative of highly civilized and technologically advanced Europe domesticating the tribal barbaric natives . Though we hardly need traitorous scoundrel Tayyip Erdogan to relay this message to us, the discoveries of relics cement the general history of early Islamic pluralism with the Indigenous. Far from aims of conquest and enslavement, West Africans, especially Mansa Musa Abu Bakari from Mali, came with gifts of gold and silver, spices and tools for the Natives with whom they established new townships through intermarriage and cultural exchange as well as spiritual harmony. The synergistic collaboration of the Africans and Natives is reflected in the Tribe of Ben Ishmael, which was ruthlessly eradicated through castration and other modes of eugenics. This eccentric collective of peoples included Africans, Natives and Irish slaves in the “New World”. They lived an Islamic life and intermarried, organizing in a cohesive tribal unit. These topics and more are addressed in depth by my late mentor, Sultan Abdul Latif in his masterpiece, “When Nations Gather“. ~ Khanverse) Continue reading Muslims in ‘Americas’ before Columbus
