    SENATOR Ted Cruz is calling for a criminal investigation into Twitter for potentially "violating US sanctions against Iran." Cruz asked for the investigation in a letter to the Justice and Treasury departments on Friday. In February, Cruz wrote a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to ask him to stop providing social media services to Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. Now, the senator is calling on Attorney General William Barr and Secretary Steve Mnuchin to "take action." In Friday's letter, Cruz wrote: "I believe that the primary goal of (the International Emergency Economic...

    The Iranian government released a profoundly anti-Semitic poster about Palestinian liberation that invoked Nazi Germany’s “final solution” plan for European Jews. Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, published a poster on Tuesday that reads “Palestine will be free. The final solution: Resistance until referendum.” Khamenei’s office released the image to celebrate Quds Day, an annual rally in Iran that calls for the destruction of Israel, according to The Jerusalem Post. The poster — which was displayed in English, Arabic and Farsi — depicts a conquered Jerusalem alongside the late Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp Quds Force...

    From the early days of Iranian Revolution four decades ago, the Iranian regime has tried to spread its theocratic doctrine to the rest of the Middle East. The regime has, in the process, successfully made substantial number of Iraqi and Lebanese ‘civilians’ and ‘armed groups’ its core external support bases. The Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who spearheads the regime, had maintained his charm among these external civilian and armed support bases for almost three and a half decade. However, the situation has been changing in the Middle East for last half a decade and the Iranian regime appears to...

    Iran’s supreme leader said President Donald Trump is a “clown” who only pretends to support the Iranian people, as he addressed Friday prayers In Tehran for the first time since 2012. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says Trump will “push a poisonous dagger” into the nation’s back. He said the outpouring of grief at the funeral for Iran’s top general, who was killed in a U.S. airstrike earlier this month, shows that Iranians support the Islamic Republic.

    History is recorded daily, whether we like it or not. History isn't what happened, but the stories of what happened and the lessons these stories include. Iran is deteriorating faster than we thought, almost to the point of no return. The Iranian people are aware that after 40 years of complete devastation by the rulers of the Islamic regime, they no longer want the Islamic Republic. In an interview with the Associated Press, Reza Pahlavi remarked, "We all know that regime change is the ultimate formula." Mr. Pahlavi is a harsh critic of the clerical rulers who have dominated Iran...

    Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei slammed the Trump administration on Wednesday over the U.S.'s policy of separating migrant families who cross the border illegally for prosecution and detainment. In comments posted on his website reported by Reuters, Rouhani wrote that he was "exasperated" to see pictures and video of migrant children as young as toddlers being kept in cages, which have caused widespread outrage in the U.S. “Seeing the images of the crime of separating thousands of children from their mothers in America makes a person exasperated,” Khamenei said, according to Reuters. “But the Americans separate the children from...

    Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad condemned Western powers in remarks during a meeting with a top Iranian adviser on Thursday, asserting that “some Western countries” object to any success Assad’s forces have on the battlefield. On Thursday, Assad met with Ali Akbar Velayati, the Iranian top adviser for International Affairs in Damascus, according to the Syrian government’s Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA). In that meeting, Assad protested that allegations of chemical weapons use against his regime are a sign that Europe and the United States are displeased with his victories against rebels on the ground. “Whenever the Syrian army achieves victory...

    ranian Ayatollah Ali Khamenei slammed President Trump and Congress on social media Sunday for not daring to stand up to the gun lobby and introduce a nationwide ban on all firearms. "No one dares apply the clear solution to the promotion of guns and homicide in America. What's the solution? It's to make guns illegal," Iran's supreme ruler wrote on Twitter. "Gun companies are so powerful that House representatives and U.S. senators don't dare pass prohibition of guns, and U.S. president doesn't dare speak out, rise against it. This is corruption," Khamenei continued. Khamenei added the country's inability to act...

    In a bizarre twist on geopolitical relations, it appears that the Ayatollah of Iran, Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei not only thinks little of President Trump, but has a warm place in his heart for the activist group Black Lives Matter. President Trump is widely criticized for his commenting on the social media platform Twitter; perhaps the media see this as a poor form of communication, yet this hasn’t stopped Iran’s leader from indulging in the same. Just this week, Ayatollah Khameni took to the Twitter-Waves to condemn Donald Trump and compare him negatively to former US President Ronald Reagan. He...

    The Iranian military has long planned for a defensive naval war in the Persian Gulf, in which it would leverage its large fleet of fast attack boats toting anti-ship missiles to launch swarming hit-and-run attacks on adversaries in along Persian Gulf, with the ultimate goal of shutting down passage through the Straits of Hormuz. Supporting this naval guerrilla-warfare strategy are 21 indigenously produced Ghadir-class mini submarines, derived from the North Korean Yono class. The 120-ton vessels can poke around at 11 knots and each carry two 533-millimeter torpedoes. All in all, shallow littoral waters are very favorable for mini-submarine operations,...

    “It is not illegal for Christians to drink alcohol in Iran but under Islamic law, Muslims are forbidden from drinking and it is illegal for Muslims to convert. The trio’s conversion from Islam to Christianity is not recognised by Iranian authorities who subscribe to Sharia law.” A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i, and Hanbali) as well as the other...

    Two world leaders who are among Washington’s most outspoken critics met in Tehran at the weekend and discussed whether the United States is unbeatable. Also on their minds — the two candidates running for the White House. “Some people think that America is invincible, while this notion is a big error,” Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. “Frequent mistakes made by Americans during the past 15 years have caused them to seriously run aground in the region and be hopeless now,” he added. “Steadfastness and rational resistance combined with foresight in the face of pressures...

    Media spins Islam then and now: Sharia Law, our U.S. Constitution are not compatible. Moral relativism, tolerance to the point of ignorance will result in national suicide “We Muslims are one family even though we live under different governments and in various regions.” —Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, leader of Iran’s revolution Thirty-seven years ago, Time magazine dedicated its cover to “Islam, The Militant Revival,” and published a lengthy article, “The World of Islam,” in which John A.

    Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared Wednesday that Iran’s ballistic missile capabilities are crucial for the country’s defense, and — in an apparent swipe at an influential former president — added that those who argue that this is a time for talks rather than for missiles are either ignorant or traitors. At a time when some U.N. Security Council members are mulling a response to Iran’s recent missile launches, Khamenei used an address to Iranians marking the birthday of Mohammed’s youngest daughter to laud the program. He praised the recent demonstrations of missile prowess by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps...

    On February 26, the ayatollahs have scheduled two "elections" in Iran: one for the parliament and one for the Assembly of Experts, a body that is supposed to monitor the supreme leader and choose a replacement when the time comes. Some in the West tout this as the potential start of a new era of moderation. After all it is the first election since the conclusion of nuclear negotiations between Iran and six world powers. But the nuclear deal cannot be the only criteria by which the West determines the prospects for moderation in Iran. Equally or more important is...

    As the world on Wednesday marked the Nazis' systematic killing of six million Jews during World War II an official Iranian website linked to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei posted a video quoting the supreme leader's questioning of the Holocaust. "No-one in European countries dares to speak about holocaust [sic] while it is not clear whether the core of this matter is a reality or not," read the English subtitles accompanying audio from an excerpt of a speech by Khamenei, over images of the entrance to Auschwitz and piles of Jewish corpses. "Even if it is a reality, it is not clear...
