Iranian Hypocrisy : The end of ‘Death to America’ chats?

image

Chants of ‘Death to America’ have been part of Iranian public life for almost 35 years. But the new wave of politicians in Tehran is trying to change that. Many political analysts suggest that the Iranians will also change their anti Israeli stance once two countries normalise their diplomatic relation. (It’s a matter to ponder that Iranians-Israelis have opened an unofficial embassy in Jerusalem on 23rd of this month, 2015).

“Only the dead have seen the end of war.” – Plato

Iran and Russia have long been sending troops and material to help Syrian autocrat Bashar Assad wage war against his own people. While his alawite clan, the vanguard of Al-Assad nepotism guards the throne of Assad which Hafez al-Assad forcefully seized through a coup. As things happen like, we have Assadists most commonly from Eastern European nations, Anti American Putin fan boys and the Shiite community in large aid and abet (through online activism and social media) this ongoing slaughter of Syrians.

The Origins of Iranian Shias

By: Dr. Ragheb El Sergani

What are Shia? Why not all muslims are Shia? Why Shia cannot grow as rapidly as Muslim in the world? Scholars of Usul Al-Fiqh (Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence) stated the following rule,

“One cannot pass a judgment on something unless one has a clear conception of it”. Based on this rule, it is meaningless to pass a judgment on Shia unless you have good knowledge about them.

It is also meaningless to express one’s opinion on reconciling the views of Sunnis and Shiites without recognizing the nature of both sects. Likewise, it is of no real sense to accept or reject talking about Shia without knowing the reality of the issue, to what extent it is dangerous, its rank as to our priorities and its relation to the multiple variables the Ummah is facing.

In short, before we proceed to criticize opponents or proponents of Shia, we should first understand who Shia are, what their origins are, what their theological and Fiqhi (Jurisprudential) backgrounds are, what their history is about, what their reality is an what their goals and ambitions are. Only after doing this, we can express our view foresightedly, especially when we know how many people changed their long-believed views and give up their ideas after they had been provided with sound information and clear vision.

The disunited Asia.

How would the world’s largest continent look if it were split up by rather more intriguing issues. I did not include the Middle East as the region has a distinct culture and tradition which is poles apart from the South-South East and Eastern Asia.
