Sayyed Nasrallah: Ummah Must Unite to Face Takfiris, Defend Islam

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

by Mark R. Elliot, Christianity Today

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.

Alexander Dugin On Eurasianism, Multipolarity and The 1984-Like Danger Of George Soros

by Alexander Dugin, Theory Talks

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.

Bosnian imam attacked 7 times over call to stay out of Syria

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.

Khantemplation Entry 1: Muslims, Marxists and Jewish Subversion

by Khanverse (Mouqawamah Music EXCLUSIVE)

Khantemplation Entry 1

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. Continue reading Khantemplation Entry 1: Muslims, Marxists and Jewish Subversion

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.
