...of the platform is missing, namely the intention to cast a gay rainbow across the face of the planet. That’s right – the onward march of homosexuality is another Zionist plot, aided by the governments of Britain and the United States.
We should all be grateful to Mashregh News, an Iranian state-controlled paper (is there such a thing as a non-state paper in Iran?), closely associated with radical Islamists in the city of Qom, for filling this gap in our knowledge, for adding a new protocol to the Protocols.
Last week it wrote that America and England are using money... (more)
The Iran nuclear weapons issue is hovering over all other uncertainties besetting the world. In recent weeks it has become more pressing and more ominous. Both the United States and Europe are implementing additional sanctions even as military intervention chatter grows in the background.
Why? The U.S. is in an election year, a time when foreign concerns are usually ignored. Europe has many other problems, and generally takes a neutral stance on Middle East issues. Why would it reduce its own oil supply – and raise oil prices - when its economy is shaky?
The answer may well be... (more)
It’s a year now since I wrote in a mood on some anger about the proposed fate of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the Iranian woman condemned to death by stoning on a charge of adultery http://anatheimp.blogspot.com/2010/08/evil-law.html.
The outcry this medievalism caused across the world was the occasion of considerable embarrassment for the Iranian regime, leading to a temporary stay of execution. But she is still in prison, still facing an uncertain future. As I said last August, the fact that she was already been subject to ninety-nine lashes, and had already been in prison for five...

...to come to any understanding of how certain disagreements between nations have come to be. Often the cause is reduced to soap opera, using terms like "jealousy" or "hatred". Yet the truth is always more nuanced than mainstream media would have us believe.
Take our current face-off with Iran over nuclear power. The players involved – the US, Britain and Russia – have a shared history that is so complex, so entangled, as to be nearly unbelievable. Yet after reading Stephen Kinzer’s superbly detailed book All the Shah's Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East... (more)
Everyone has been hearing that there is misunderstanding between Iran and the UN. They fight over whether Iran is enriching uranium for nukes. However, even Russia knows what Iran is doing surreptiously. We also know Russia has commercial ties to Iran which complicates its position on sanctions imposed on Iran. Since Iran is also close to China who finally agreed to watered down sanctions, its capabilities grow more threatening to the world and particularly its closest neighbors.
In case Iran is not deterred as soon as possible, it may cause other Middle East countries to develop nuclear... (more)
Arizona is now the safest state in the lower 48 United States of America. State law now authorizes law enforcement officials to actively inquire as to a person’s legal status within the United States.
Thank God SOMEBODY had the guts to stand up for the rights of the citizens of the United States and quit pandering to the whiny, thumb-sucking illegal aliens who think that they are entitled to the same rights as actual citizens. Of course those same whiny, crybaby, thumb-sucking illegal aliens are the ones who are screaming the loudest that they’re going to be profiled and sent back... (more)
Ahmadinejad: ‘Israel Can't Do a Thing to Stop Iran'Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Wednesday Israel and its Western backers "cannot do a ... thing to stop Iran's nuclear work."

He said the agency was "under pressure from a few superficially powerful countries."The IAEA passed a resolution Friday denouncing Iran for constructing a secret enrichment plant near the city of Qom. Tehran responded by announcing... (more)

...during his speech from one or more congressmen who shouted out disrespectful comments did not seem to throw the president off message, but it exemplified the deep distrust that exists about his plan. On the national security front, he also learned about the growing challenges in Afghanistan, Iran and Venezuela. All of this to a young and untested man who must provide leadership in the months ahead.
The President laid out again in broad terms without details the various components of his health care plan seeking to allay many of the concerns expressed in town hall meetings this... (more)

Jimmy: Distant Thunder is built upon the complexity of a 2500 year old Biblical Prophecy and how that prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes today. It all fits within current world events, namely what is happening between Israel and Iran. Ezekiel the prophet foretold how that particular struggle will end. My story, of course, is fiction. It involves a renewal of terrorism against the United States and Israel, particularly with the use of tactical nuclear weapons. Therefore, Russia, Iran, Syria, and other radical Islamic... (more)
