Iran is ruled by the new president Hassan Rouhani…
But what has changed in Iran since the Islamic Revolution?
Is Rouhani not a Muslim?
Is not he a supporter of the Ayatollah Khomeini?
Does he not enjoy the support of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei?
Is there now democracy in Iran, since they elected a new president?
Is the Islamic Gestapo, which we know as the Islamic Revolutionary Guards, now abolished?
Is Iran not calling for the destruction of America, Israel and Western civilization?
Such questions can be multiplied infinitely, but the answers to them are clear. In relation to the West and, Western thought, democracy and freedom in Iran remain suppressed in Iran.
However, with the coming to power of the “reformer” Rouhani, has absolutely nothing changed?
Certainly things have changed.
From Khamenei on down, the Iranians have become more skillful liars.
Everyone remembers that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei issued a fatwa that stated that the production, stockpiling and use of nuclear weapons was prohibited in Islam.
It was released as part of the Shi’ite doctrine of “taqiyya” (which is permitted in the defense of the faith). The fact is, however, that Khamenei may modify or cancel it altogether in the future — especially as this has already happened in history, when the Supreme Leader Khomeini during the Iran-Iraq war canceled his fatwa against weapons of mass destruction and ordered the resumption of the development of such weapons, including nuclear bombs. Yet the new President of Iran was able to prove to the world that he was faithful to this fatwa, and was even able to convince the leaders of the European Union and the United States, who had not believed in the fatwa. Moreover, he was able to convince them to lift economic sanctions and help the economy of Islamic Republic of Iran.
Everything really changed.
It is still hard to believe what has happened. In the blink of an eye, the center of the “axis of evil” has been transformed into an economic partner.
Moreover, most importantly, we all now have an excuse.
If the United States believes Iran, why don’t we beat them in professing our love for the rich oil fields of that country?
Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov’s visit to Tehran was followed by that of a delegation from the European Parliament. This visit of six representatives of the European Parliament lasted six days. We know that Russia arranged to give the antiaircraft defense S-300 to Iran. It is a contract worth several billion dollars, but if America and Europe lift sanctions, why shouldn’t the Russians earn some money as well?
Turkey does not want to lose the initiative, either. Ankara and Tehran intend to create a joint free economic zone, said the Turkish Deputy Economy Minister, Ibrahim Senel. Work is already underway on its project, he added.
Turkey’s Minister of Development, Cevdet YÄ±lmaz, spoke previously about the possible establishment of a joint free economic zone with Iran. He noted that the two countries have good relations in all areas, but in the field of economics, they still lag somewhat. “Economic relations between Turkey and Iran are below the capacity of these countries,” he said.
The Turkish Energy and Natural Resources Minister, Taner YÄ±ldÄ±z, announced Iran’s plans to build a pipeline to Europe: “We know that Iran is going to lay a gas pipeline to Europe. Five European countries have already made plans to import Iranian gas.” The minister noted that in light of Iran’s foreign policy, the easing of relations with Turkey would only continue.
Iran’s ambassador to Turkey, Alireza Bikdeli, said that after the next meeting of the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan, Turkey and Iran, there would be a declaration. “Workgroups of the three countries, including currently operating working groups on energy, economy and trade, will hold a meeting prior to the ministerial meeting. They will prepare a declaration to be adopted at a meeting of foreign ministers.”
He also noted that the Foreign Ministers of Iran and Turkey, Mohammad Javad Zarif and Ahmet DavutoÄŸlu, before the meeting to be held in the province of Gumushhane in Turkey, will also meet at the meeting of the “D-8” (Islamic Eight), which will be held on December 19 in Pakistan.
I do not know if this would be enough evidence in America to convince a jury, but it is becoming clear that the West has given to Iran the right to enrich uranium in order to develop nuclear weapons in exchange for its oil and gas resources.
Nevertheless, this is one problem, and the second problem is the not unimportant fact that in Syria, on the one side there are Hizballah and Revolutionary Guards and on the other side Al-Qaeda — and according to some representatives, members of the Turkish intelligence services are fighting among themselves.
In addition, this has all been happening for several years now near the borders of the Jewish state of Israel. Everyone knows how both Iran and Hizballah, as well as the Revolutionary Guards and Al-Qaeda, to the Jewish state and to Jews: the Qur’an teaches them to be extremely hostile.
The sociopathic dictator Stalin and many other dictators of the Soviet Union, because of their ambition and ego, would train soldiers to face certain death. The survivors have formed the Special Forces.
Now it turns out that both Iran and Al-Qaeda have assembled well-trained mujahideen near the borders of Israel who are fanatically loyal to their sociopathic leaders and their teachings. Moreover, these immoral leaders can quickly make inhuman decisions, decisions that could cost the lives of millions of innocent people.
