1396/5/1 | 19:44
  Once again US has targeted Iran for new sanctions and the Iranian reaction was swift, with President Rouhani saying on Wednesday that his country would “respond appropriately” to US moves.     Instead of building upon the 2015 nuclear agreement — which Mr Trump once termed “the worst deal ever” — and addressing its concerns with Iran at the negotiating table, it appears that the current American administration is trying very hard to look for ‘trouble’ with Iran.      Unable to find fault with ...

1396/4/27 | 19:44
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Monday that he hopes Yemen’s war will not spark direct confrontation between Iran and Saudi Arabia and that they can work together to end the conflict in the country and Syria.

Why Iran’s supreme leader clubbed Kashmir with Yemen, and not with Palestine

1396/4/24 | 19:44
  In subsequent decades, Iranians watered down their rhetoric on Kashmir and strengthened ties with New Delhi.   When the then foreign minister Inder Kumar Gujral was about to undertake an official visit to Iran in 1991, the Iranian government conveyed to New Delhi that the minister was not welcome in Tehran. The Iranian rebuke came in the wake of an Indian military crackdown on pro-independence activists in Kashmir who Tehran considered were waging a legitimate struggle for independence. Four years later, in 1994, Iranians abstained ...

Will Sudan side with Russia and Iran if sanctions are not lifted?

1396/4/18 | 19:44
The expectation that the United States will completely lift economic sanctions against Sudan is by no means certain.   Just days before the 12 July deadline, Sudanese diplomats around the world are getting ready to either welcome the lifting of sanctions and see Sudan amerced into the international community; or defend a dramatic new foreign policy direction which could see a return to an anti-US stance should sanctions be re-imposed. The uncertainty over the decision is being fuelled by the unpredictable mercurial nature of ...

Pakistan-Iran rapprochement: Would India realize her blunder?

1396/4/17 | 19:44
  It seems that realpolitik is still the order of the day. What else are we to make of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, imploring the ‘Muslim World’ to support the oppressed people of Kashmir?      The Ayatollah has historically steered clear of mentioning Kashmir so as not to irk his country’s ally — not to mention strong economic partner — India.   The last time the Ayatollah mentioned Kashmir was back in 2010. At that time, New Delhi lodged an official protest with the Iranian government. We ...

Indo-Israel honeymoon: Why Pak-Iran alliance has becomes a reality?

1396/4/16 | 19:44
  Amidst the tumult in global affairs, the Indo-Israeli relationship has emerged as a steady bilateral alliance, surprising to some, while others have been watching the ties between Tel Aviv and New Delhi grow over the decades.     Narendra Modi’s recent visit to Israel seems to have cemented this alliance, as the warm embrace between the Indian premier and Benjamin Netanyahu on the tarmac of Ben Gurion International Airport on Tuesday showed.      However, the visit has sparked an interesting reaction  from ...

US war on Syria is all about Iran

1396/4/13 | 19:44
  The White House spokesperson, Israel-First Sean Spicer, in a statement said: “The United States has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime. The activities are similar to preparations the regime made before its April 4, 2017 chemical weapons attack.”   In April 2017, this idiot was chased by the organized Jewry for claiming Nazis didn’t use chemical weapons against ‘innocent Jews’ as Assad did against its own civilians. I wonder if Spicer got information on the coming ...

An untold story: How Israel influenced Kingdom to appoint Muhammad bin Salman?

1396/4/12 | 19:44
  Although the Kingdom has never formally recognised Israel, the pretense of enmity fails in the face of overwhelming evidence of political, military, and economic cooperation between Israel and Saudi Arabia.      Even when officials from both states are publicly exchanging heated words, it takes little skill to notice that the political goals of Saudi Arabia and Israel are nearly always aligned.     In 2013, the Times of London reported an alleged agreement between Saudi Arabia and Israel, allowing the latter ...

US Falsely Accuses Iran of Violating Nuclear Deal

1396/4/11 | 19:44
It’s very difficult to accuse Iran of being in violation of the P5+1 nuclear deal, because they are plainly not.   The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which is responsible for policing the deal, confirms on a monthly basis that this remains the case, and that Iran has not been in violation of the pact.   That’s an inconvenience for the Trump Administration, which has repeatedly condemned the deal and insisted Iran would violate it. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley appears to have decided that the path ...

US fighting Israel’s proxy war against Iran

1396/4/7 | 19:44
  In September 2015, former US vice-president Joe Biden told his Jewish audience at Ahavath Achim synagogue in Atlanta: “The only thing that would satisfy (US-Iran nuclear) deal opponents including Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is “a regime change” that could only come with US power.”   On July 7, 2015, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former White House adviser under Nixon administration, in a post on his blog wrote that the nuclear weapons fabrication has always been a cloak for Washington’s real intention, which is ...

  Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan  Nasrallah said that a future war waged by Israel against Syria or Lebanon could draw thousands of fighters from countries including Pakistan, Iran and Iraq.     His comments indicated that the same array of Iranian-backed militias - but not countries - currently fighting in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad could take part in any future conflict with Israel.     Tensions have risen between Hezbollah and its longtime foe Israel in recent months since Donald Trump ...

Rise of a war monger: Why Pakistan would be more under pressure by new crown prince?

1396/4/4 | 19:44

Remembering what the Supreme leaders of Iran said about Al-Quds day

1396/4/3 | 19:44
  Al-Quds Day (يوم القدس) takes place every year on the last Friday of the month of Ramazan. Soon after the Islamic revolution in Iran, Imam Khomeini called on Muslims to dedicate this day to demanding the rights of oppressed Muslims around the world - particularly in Palestine. On this day, rallies are organised before Friday prayer to protest against the occupation of Palestine.   Since the end of Ramzan varies from country to country, if the last day of Ramzan falls on Friday or Saturday in Iran, Al-Quds day will be held ...

Downing the drone: What caused the trust deficit between Pakistan and Iran?

1396/4/3 | 19:44
The relationship between Pakistan and Iran has been tense in the near past. Iran’s army chief recently warned that Tehran would strike militant safe haven inside Pakistan ─ remarks that drew a strong protest from Islamabad ─ after 10 Iranian border guards were killed by militants allegedly from across the border earlier this year.   This is a far cry from the time Iran was the first country to recognize Pakistan after it gained independence in 1947. Unfortunately, Pakistan has been made a theatre of Shia Sunni proxy war between ...

Demands list: Would Qatar cut ties with Iran?

1396/4/3 | 19:44
  Four Arab states boycotting Qatar over alleged support for terrorism have sent Doha a list of 13 demands including closing Al Jazeera television and reducing ties to their regional adversary Iran, an official of one of the four countries said.     The demands aimed at ending the worst Gulf Arab crisis in years appear designed to quash a two decade-old foreign policy in which Qatar has punched well above its weight, striding the stage as a peace broker, often in conflicts in Muslim lands.     Doha's independent-minded ...
