Burkina Faso’s new transitional president has promised to open an investigation to identify remains believed to be those of the West African nation’s revolutionary hero Thomas Sankara, who was assassinated more than 27 years ago.
President Michel Kafando, who received power from the country’s military on Friday, said investigations would go forward “in the name of national reconciliation”.
Sankara, sometimes described as the “African Che Guevara”, was just 33 when he seized power in a coup in 1983.
He left a lasting mark during his short presidency, even changing the former French colony’s name from Upper Volta to Burkina Faso, which translates as “land of honest people”. Continue reading Burkina Faso vows to identify remains of folk hero Sankara

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.

The recent killing by a Russian “volunteer” sniper of the so-called “White Widow,” aka Samantha Lewthwaite, while she was fighting against Russian-speaking forces in eastern Ukraine, is the best evidence yet of Islamic State collusion with the Kiev government and Zionist Ukrainian tycoons like Ihor Kolomoisky. Lewthwaite was reportedly killed by Russian forces some two weeks ago in the eastern Ukrainian region of Lugansk. Continue reading Death Of “White Widow” in Ukraine proves ISIS-Kiev-Israeli alliance
(EDITOR’S NOTE: Utterly deplorable that Al-Arabiya, the most prominent mouthpiece of the House of Saud, would “report” that these nuclear engineers were murdered in cold blood by “unidentified assailants”, when all evidence points to the usurping Zionist entity. As Professor As’ad AbuKhalil bluntly put it back in the summer of 2012, when the first such assassinations had occurred, “The assassination of scientists whose knowledge and expertise bother Israel clearly proves a link between the Israeli terrorist state and Free Syrian Army. This does not even require analysis.” Then again, as reprehensible as it is, it’s quite typical, as Al-Arabiya has been parroting hasbara for as long as one can remember. Recently, the Saudi royalist propaganda channel echoed “Israeli” language when discussing Jewish aggressions against Al-Aqsa and if we go back to the genocidal nightmare of Operation Cast Lead, Al-Arabiya’s coverage was so horrific and biased towards the illegitimate “Israeli” regime that Arabs began calling it Al-Ibriyya, “The Hebrew”. In military terms, this latest Mossad-Takfiri assassination has clearly been carried out in response to the rapid gains of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies across the country. International Zionism is frustrated over its failure in Bilad al-Sham and is therefore lashing out in the only way it knows how: through pure terrorism. ~ Jonathan Azaziah) Continue reading Activists say five nuclear engineers murdered in Syria

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. Continue reading Discovering Iran: Women’s Rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran
BEIRUT (The Daily Star) – Israel and Takfiri militants are seeking to ignite civil war in Lebanon, General Security head Abbas Ibrahim wrote in an editorial published Thursday.
“Independence Day arrives while Lebanon battles the odds … in an ordeal not destined to end until [Lebanon’s] inevitable victory in the battle for existence and identity in the face of organized terrorism, which is seeking to … strike at its elements of existence through inciting [sectarian] strife and setting the stage for a civil war by targeting the military institution and other security agencies,” Ibrahim said in the article for the November issue of General Security Magazine.
“Zionism is equally as dangerous [a threat] as takfiri terrorism,” he said. Continue reading Israel, Takfiris seeking to ignite civil war in Lebanon: Ibrahim
