  • Saudi War on Yemen

    Saudi Arabia launched its aggression against Yemen on March 26. The aggression was a bad innovation, an illegal measure and a true example of crime against humanity. Iranian Supreme Leader described Saudi aggression as a "bad innovation" and "mistake". House of Saud's measure is a bad innovation since Yemen is an independent country and its current crisis must be treated as a domestic one. Paragraph 7, Article 2 of the UN Charter reads,"Nothing contained in the present Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state …." Accordingly, non-intervention in domestic affairs of member-states and respecting their sovereignty is a must.

  • ISIL

    In a world gripped by fast-paced changes and the media’s obsession with reporting something “new” daily, the ISIL's attacks in Iraq and Syria may sound like old news, but they are not. The ISIL is a threat not only to the people under their immediate control — in Syria and Iraq where they have indulged in horrific acts of violence and brutality — but it also poses a serious challenge to the very soul of Islam. It ultimately boils down to who speaks for Islam, the universal religion whose message is contained in the majestic Qur’an and exemplified by the noble Messenger (pbuh) during his blessed life. To be sure, the ISIL takfiris perpetrate ever horrific crimes on a daily basis against innocent people. These attract little or no attention as long as the victims were Muslims. When Westerners were targeted, then there was much media hype and endless commentary about the barbarism of these people, indeed of all Muslims. The West has a habit of tarring all Muslims with the same brush

  • Boko Haram

Corruption in the security services and human rights abuses .committed by them have hampered efforts to counter the unrest

  • Gaza War

    War crimes prosecutions are never meant for the powerful countries and their friends. If that were so, Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu and Tony Blair and King Abdullah and George W. Bush and Paul Kagame would all be in the dock. They are definitely criminals but they are the top ranked criminals or their henchmen. They never pay the price but people in Gaza still do. The following is a comprehensive story of the current war crimes committed by such bullying powers

  • Israel (Zionism, Occupation, Terrorism)/ Part II

    Usurping nature of Israel has caused the original inhabitants of Palestine as well as neighbor people to never recognize legitimacy of such a state, and the very same issue has credited “right to return to homeland” and “right to decide their own destiny” as the main principles and values of Palestinian nation and has made war against Israel a sacred cow so as Israeli former Prime Minister Ben-Gurion had said, “Why should the Arabs make peace? If I were an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural: they think we have taken their country….”


  • The US and Iran’s nuclear issue

    American neoconservatives believe that in the current situations the Middle East acts in an anti-systemic way. They believe there is only one region, the Middle East, which resists the Western capitalist system as well as efforts to security the future of Israel. Under such circumstances, as the first priority, there is the plan to subjugate or confront those countries that oppose the American hegemony. As the second plan, there is the building of the New Middle East, which relates to those countries that are still away from democracy as seen by Americans.

  • About book: Students and Hostages: An Oral History of the Student Followers of the Line of Imam

    Islamic Revolution Documents Center – US crimes in Iran during many years provided good justification for the seizure of its embassy. Nonetheless, White House officials used to strongly back Mohammad Reza Pahlavi toward the end of his rule. After the revolution also, they gave him refuge, refusing to extradite him to Iran to be tried before the Revolution court, which further outraged Iranian people. Also, the US embassy in Tehran had turned into a spy den for the CIA, where intelligence forces sued to spy in the uniform of diplomats. This was later proven by documents obtained at the embassy. These provided grounds for the Student Followers of the Line of Imam to seize the embassy.

  • Six facts about US crimes at embassy in Iran

    Islamic Revolution Documents Center – The seizure of the US embassy took place within the collective memory of a nation.
