    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 trios 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, Shafii, and Hanbali) as well as the other...

    Two world leaders who are among Washingtons 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 Irans 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. Meyer wrote, We want to examine Islams resurgence, not simply as another faith but as a political force and potent third ideology competing with...

    Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared Wednesday that Irans ballistic missile capabilities are crucial for the countrys 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 Irans recent missile launches, Khamenei used an address to Iranians marking the birthday of Mohammeds 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...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived in Tehran for talks with Iranian leaders about the crisis in Syria. On his first trip to Iran in eight years, Putin met with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday, as Russia nears a third month of military engagement in the conflict. The discussions come on a sidelines of a one-day trip to Iran for a summit of gas-exporting countries. Tehran and Moscow have supported Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the ongoing civil war that has crippled the country since 2011 and killed over 250,000 people. The violence has displaced millions more. On...

    Nonetheless, the president told 'The New Yorker' that the Iranian government's behavior was not as extreme as its rhetoric suggests. In his latest attempt to sell the public on the merits of the Iran nuclear agreement, US President Barack Obama told an American news magazine earlier this week that he was not naive about the threats against Israel made by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Islamic Republic's supreme leader. His ideology is steeped with anti-Semitism, and if he could, without catastrophic costs, inflict great harm on Israel, Im confident that he would, Obama told journalist Robin Wright of The New Yorker....

    While Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama do their best to paper over the brutality of the Iranian regime and force through a nuclear agreement, Irans religious leader has another issue on his mind: The destruction of Israel. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has published a new book called Palestine, a 416-page screed against the Jewish state. A blurb on the back cover credits Khamenei as The flagbearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem. Khamenei makes his position clear from the start: Israel has no right to exist as a state. He uses three words. One is nabudi, which means annihilation....

    FRANCE, Paris: Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was a Republican candidate in the 2008 US presidential elections, spoke at a major Iran Freedom rally in Villepinte on Saturday, June 13, 2015. The event was held at Parc des Expositions exhibition center. Giuliani said: "The ayatollah must go. He and Rouhani and Ahmadinejad and all of the rest of them should be put on trial for crimes against humanity for the thousands and hundreds of thousands of people they have killed, and it is about time we stop ignoring it. Where is our decency and morality? We have...

    Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Irans Supreme Leader, addressed a gathering of Iranian teachers on May 6 who repeatedly responded to his address by chanting in unison: Allah is great! Khamenei is the leader! Death to the enemies of the leadership! Death to America! Death to England! Death to the hypocrites! Death to Israel! According to an English-language transcript of the speech published by the BBC, the Iranian teachers interrupted the ayatollah with chants calling for death to America, England and Israel at three points in his speech. We say that teachers carry out the task of the prophets; this is the...

    On MSNBC's Sunday afternoon programming hosted by network anchor Alex Witt, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said "death to America" chants in Iran could be read "in a couple of ways," not necessarily in the literal sense. Schiff argued Ayatollah Khamenei's chants "really plays to the conservative crowd" in Iran. "Or, it could be of course that he really means it," Schiff also argued.

    The nuclear "deal" with Iran and The Israeli-Palestinian "peace process" The tempest that has recently blown over the US-Israel relations has one unique source, the personality and far-leftist ideology of one man, President Obama: his narcissistic belief and arrogant unilateral acts that are anathema to the American political system; his intolerance to dissenting views that brook no dissent from the other co-equal branch of government, the US Congress or from a foreign Prime Minister such as Netanyahu; his disdain of the US Constitution and his violation of its most cherished tenets; and his vindictive and punishing reactions against those who...

    The open letter from Senator Tom Cotton and 46 other Republican senators to the leadership of Iran, which even Republicans themselves admit was aimed at encouraging Iranian opponents of the nuclear negotiations to argue that the United States cannot be counted on to keep the bargain, has created a new political firestorm. It has been harshly denounced by Democratic loyalists as stunning and appalling, and critics have accused the signers of the letter of being treasonous for allegedly violating a law forbidding citizens from negotiating with a foreign power. But the response to the letter has primarily distracted public attention...

    Iran has selected a new figure to head its national Assembly of Experts, a body that governs the tenure of the Supreme leader, state news agency FARS reported on Tuesday. Ayatollah Mohammad Yazdi, a cleric who had served as the head of Iran's Judiciary branch between 1989 and 1999, was among other candidates considered for the position, both of whom are senior clerics in the Islamic Republic's regime and hold the title of Ayatollah. Yazdi's selection to this new position comes in light of reports that the current Supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, who suffers from stage four prostate cancer, was...
