Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed Friday that terrorist groups are offending the Messenger of Allah – Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) – by their shameful actions, especially when they “behead thousands of people and kill thousands of people in Yemen for commemorating the Prophet’s birth anniversary.”
“Those offensives are supported by being easily circulated across several geographical locations, starting from Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq, to the states that facilitated visas for terrorists to travel into our country.” Continue reading Sayyed Nasrallah: Ummah Must Unite to Face Takfiris, Defend Islam

Evangelicals in Russia have become ardent fans of President Vladimir Putin because of Russia’s efforts to maintain its influence in Ukraine, its takeover of Crimea in 2014, and the widespread Russian belief that the West is to blame for the present economic woes on the home front.

Iran’s Intelligence Ministry reported Jan. 4, “Enemies who were using the name of Shiites created 17 satellite TV stations, and their offices inside the country were closed.” Domestic intelligence official Mohammad Pourfallah did not specify which offices were targeted, but they were most likely affiliated with the Shiite Shirazi movement.

IR has long been regarded as an Anglo-American social science. Recently, the discipline has started to look beyond America and England, to China ( Theory Talk #51 , Theory Talk #45 ), India ( Theory Talk #63 , Theory Talk #42 ), Africa (Theory Talk #57, Theory Talk #10 ) and elsewhere for non-Western perspectives on international affairs and IR theory. However, IR theorists have paid little attention to Russian perspectives on the discipline and practice of international relations. We offer an exciting peek into Russian geopolitical theory through an interview with the controversial Russian geopolitical thinker Alexander Dugin, founder of the International Eurasian Movement and allegedly an important influence on Putin’s foreign policy. In this Talk, Dugin—among others—discusses his Theory of a Multipolar World, offers a staunch critique of western and liberal IR, and lays out Russia’s unique contribution to the landscape of IR theory.
What, according to you, is the central challenge or principle debate within IR and what would be your position within this debate or towards that challenge?
The field of IR is extremely interesting and multidimensional. In general, the discipline is much more promising than many think. I think that there is a stereometry today in IR, in which we can distinguish a few axes right away.

TRNOVI, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — The long-bearded man burst into the mosque’s yard and pinned Selvedin Beganovic to the ground. Shouting “Now I will slaughter you!” he plunged a knife three times into the imam’s chest and fled.
It was no random attack: Beganovic has suffered seven assaults blamed on Takfiri terrorists in the past year — with three just last month.

Muslims who describe themselves as “Marxist” on some high and mighty identity politics should be aggressively opposed on the intellectual plane. Marx came from a long long line of Talmudic rabbis. The real Godfather and author of communism was Moses Hess, an ordained Talmudic rabbi. These subversives like so many other Jews of the same period were not trying to liberate any Gentiles from anything. In fact their very model of society has left behind a very ignoble legacy that can be examined and scrutinized in the Judeo-Bolshevik Soviet Union.

As Christians around the world celebrate Christmas, the holiday season is also observed in Iran, a predominantly Muslim nation where Christians make up less than 1% of the country’s approximate population of 77.5 million.
Christmas trees decorated with red, green and gold gift boxes placed behind shop windows or at the entrances of different shopping malls and hotels can be seen, especially in the Christian neighborhoods of Tehran.
Decorated trees, along with Nativity scenes of the Virgin Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus, can also be seen in shops along Mirza Shirazi Avenue and Ostaad Nejatollahi (Villa Avenue) and its surrounding neighborhoods in central Tehran, where many Iranian Christians reside.
