A picture is worth 1000 words and our President is ignorant as to basic world affairs. How terribly embarrassing and tragic for the civilized world.
United Nations M-113 armored personnel carriers and transports participating in Iranian military pass in review.
Can there be a greater indictment of the United Nations? Is this the organization that the world is depending upon to watch over Iran’s nuclear program?
If you or a family member attend Brooklyn College, Fordham University or City University of New York, there are three professors that you should avoid at all costs:
• Alex Vitae
• Heather Gautney
• John Hammond
These three geniuses are featured in an Iranian state-controlled media video segment at a conference in Tehran about the radical leftist Occupy Wall Street movement.
It’s a shame, but the Left in America as it exists today will conference with terrorists, genocidal monsters and outright enemies of liberty to promote their seditious agenda. No where is this more true than on our college campuses.
Your blogger gave a speech on the Muslim Brotherhood in America to a group near Baton Rouge, LA two years ago. A professor at LSU criticized my speech and defended the Muslim Brotherhood as a legitimate opposition movement. When I checked his CV, it turns out that he had been a visiting professor at the University of Tehran for 3 consecutive summers in recent years.
Clearly the regime in Tehran is running a successful influence campaign on US college campuses, even public university campuses, where they are essentially on the taxpayers’ payroll. The ayatollahs are finding willing fellow travelers and useful idiots in the form of American college professors who are filling the minds of America’s youth with subversive hogwash.
When you click on the link below to view this 2-minute video from Iran’s Press TV via the excellent MEMRI service, pay particular attention to Heather Gautney of Fordham. Notice that she is wearing a head scarf. We are 100% certain that this is not part of Heather’s normal attire. She is willing to bow to Iran’s Shariah law and make herself look like the hypocrite that she is in order to commiserate with those who chant “Death to America.”
These three professors are disgraceful. What they are doing is no different than a visiting delegation heading to Nazi Germany in 1938–except we arguably know MORE about Iran’s evil activities than we had yet realized about Nazi Germany in 1938…
US Professors Attend an Occupy Wall Street Conference in Tehran
Turkey is Islamist and is spiraling toward becoming an outlaw state itself. In ten years, people will be asking how Turkey was ever allowed to remain a member of Turkey. One of the manifestations of this is continuing flirtations with the world’s foremost sponsor of Jihadist terrorism: Iran.
For evidence, see the report below from Iranian state-controlled media:
Turkish premier voices support for Iran nuclear positionTurkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has voiced his country’s unwavering support for Iran’s nuclear energy program in a meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
“The government and nation of Turkey has always clearly supported the nuclear positions of the Islamic republic of Iran, and will continue to firmly follow the same policy in the future,” Erdogan said during the meeting in Tehran on Thursday.
For his part, Ahmadinejad praised Turkey for its “clear and frank” stance on the issue, saying Tehran and Ankara have historically propped up each other on global matters.
“Iran and Turkey have stood by each other on most of the international scenes and have always independently and seriously confronted the imperialism of Westerners and arrogant powers,” the Iranian president said.
“The arrogant powers never want countries like Iran and Turkey to progress and become powers on the global stage. Thus, we have to be vigilant in the face of their plots,” Ahmadinejad added.
During a Wednesday meeting with Iran’s Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, Erdogan expressed his country’s readiness to improve ties with Tehran in all fields, particularly in economic and trade sectors.
No one should be allowed to harm the friendly ties between Iran and Turkey, he said.
The Turkish premier arrived in Iran’s capital of Tehran on Wednesday, heading a high-ranking politico-economic delegation on an official two-day visit for talks with senior Iranian officials.
The US, Israel and some of their allies have accused Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear energy program.
The US and the EU have used this pretext to impose sanctions against Iran, while Tel Aviv has issued threats of a military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities. Washington has repeatedly threatened Iran with “all options” on the table.
The Islamic Republic has strongly refuted Western allegations regarding its nuclear energy program, arguing that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it is entitled to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful objectives.
Uruguay Seeking to Barter Rice for Oil with Iran
TEHRAN (FNA)- Uruguayan Agriculture Minister Tabaré Agerre announced his country’s readiness to supply rice to Iran in exchange for oil.
“If Iran is willing to barter oil for rice we will do it and we will take out currency from (the operation),” said Agriculture Minister Tabare Aguerre.
Uruguay is a key exporter of rice in Latin America and the seventh largest supplier in the world.
Before the US sanctions against Iran were put in place Iran was the largest consumer of rice from Uruguay. The United States has warned that it could slap sanctions on countries that buy crude from Iran.
Uruguay’s enthusiasm and readiness for new forms of oil deals with Iran in defiance of the United States’ extraterritorial laws is more interesting when remembering that the country is viewed as a US ally in Latin America.
Uruguay exported 90,000 tons of rice to Iran in 2011.
Since taking office in 2005, President Ahmadinejad has expanded Iran’s cooperation with many Latin American states, including Venezuela, Bolivia, Cuba, Ecuador and Brazil.
The strong and rapidly growing ties between Iran and Latin America have raised eyebrows in the US and its western allies since Tehran and Latin nations have forged an alliance against the imperialist and colonialist powers and are striving hard to reinvigorate their relations with the other independent countries which pursue a line of policy independent from the US.
In January, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad went on a four-leg tour of Latin America, where he expressed his pleasure in seeing the common positions of Iran and Latin American states on different international issues.
Addressing a press conference upon his arrival from the tour, Ahmadinejad stated that the Islamic Republic is on the same front with most Latin American countries in the campaign against hegemony and injustice.
He lauded the close ties between the two sides, and noted, “Iran’s relations with Latin America are very good, expansive, and strategic, and the country’s interactions and transactions with all the countries of this region are increasing and deepening.”
The tour of Latin America took the Iranian president to Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba and Ecuador, where all the countries’ leaders reiterated their support for Iran’s right to access peaceful nuclear technology and defended Tehran against the threats and pressures exerted by the US-led West.
Iran has done a raft of deals in Latin America nations ranging from housing construction agreements with Venezuela to financing for Cuba’s purchases of Iranian-made train cars.
Catholic.org has published a truly horrible article on the conflict between Iran and Israel: Israeli War with Iran May Be More Costly Than Believed.
In that article, the author makes specious assertions about what the Israeli government is telling its people and advises naively that Israel and the West can negotiate with the Iranian regime in good faith to find a peaceful settlement.
Has the person who wrote this article calculated the possible cost of a nuclear armed gang of Mullahs in Tehran? And if war with Iran is costly now, what would the cost be once Iran goes nuclear? Does anyone with a serious view really believe that it is possible to negotiate in good faith with the Ayatollahs after all these years?
To lump the democratically elected government in Israel with the despotic, terrorist regime in Iran as being equally “devil may care,” as the author explicitly states in the article, is totally irresponsible.
The article falsely asserts that the Israeli government is telling people that they have little to fear from a war with Iran. That is a total fabrication. No one in Israel has any illusions about war; they’ve lived it non-stop for decades, in all its forms, and no one is telling anyone that there is nothing to fear. On the other hand, the Israelis know that they have MORE to fear from a NUCLEAR Iran.
As a Catholic I am ashamed that this article appears on Catholic.org. Given the church’s shameful record in facilitating Nazi war criminals making their escape after World War II, it is highly disturbing to me to find an article on Catholic.org essentially equating the two sides-Israel and Iran–with one another.
Finally, when making up your own minds about whether or not Israel or other nations need to keep Iran from becoming a nuclear power, consider that Iran considers Israel the Little Satan. America is the Great Satan. Iran has a national holiday called “Death to America Day.” Maybe that’s why they armed, trained and supplied Jihadists in Iraq and Afghanistan who killed US GIs. I for one am not comfortable with an Iran armed with atomic bombs.
Sky News is the UK is reporting that a special unit of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps al Quds Brigade has been deployed to Turkey with the intent of targeting Jewish, Israeli and Western targets for terrorist attacks.
The name of the special unit is “Unit 400.”
It would certainly not be the first time that Jihadists have used Turkey as a battleground for terrorist attacks on Western targets. And because Turkey has a large Islamist community, is essentially ruled by an Islamist party and has become decidedly anti-Israel since the Islamists came to power, a terrorist force like Unit 400 can find clandestine support and blend in to the landscape almost effortlessly.
Note also that Unit 400 has been named as plotting terrorist attacks in European nations and also in the USA. The US plot involved cooperation with Mexican drug cartels.
According to the report, the Iranian regime wants to use the Unit 400 attacks to send a signal to the West that Iran is highly capable of waging irregular warfare in the West should Iran be attacked over its nuclear program.
Unit 400 is a serious threat. These are highly-trained, professional operatives, not young Jihadis who have been duped into going Islamikaze by an Imam in some hell-hole mosque in a bad neighborhood.
