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
