A call to the Iranian government:

A plight is obviously made by Tel Aviv in cooperation with their ally the US government ..

How can Iran be safe of such evil plight?
>> By relying on God alone
>> By refraining from the glorification of the imams and sheikhs and their tombs.
>> By observing God's commandments in the Quran.

Therefore, I invite the Iran government to stop supporting the ignorant men who glorify the imam shrines and tombs ..
to stop supporting the shrines and tombs of the imams, but instead to support the mosques of God ..
and to keep glorifying God alone .. seeking His help alone

If the Iran government observes this subject, then they will escape the plight and evil of the Zionists and the Imperialists .. or else the Iran government will lose.

I don't profess Isl;am myself, but even non-Muslim scholars acknowledge that Muhammad himself had appointed 'Ali as the leader of the faithful. The Twelver Shi'a are actually right on that one.

Whether he appointed Ali or not is irrelevant now, because Ali - salam to him - died and went to Paradise in Heaven, so now people should hold fast with the monotheism and the Quran.
Such centering about Ali will lead people to worship and glorify Ali apart from God alone.

A call to the Iranian people

The Iranin Muslim people should be alert to the plot of the Zionists and Imperialists : Tel Aviv and Washington
The way to become triumphant is:
>> To hold fast with God alone.
>> To abandon the idolatry in the form of glorifying the imam shrines and tombs, and instead to glorify God alone seeking His help.
>> To abandon every tradition not written in the Quran
>> To be alert about the impostors and religious men who invite to the enthusiasm about the imams and sheikhs.

The enthusiasm about the imams and the family of the Prophet

The enthusiasm in loving the imams will lead to glorifying them apart from God.
While the glorification and worshiping is due to God alone.

Glorifying the tombs of the imams is a kind of idolatry :

People will come to visit the erected tombs, and to ask their needs from them, and to glorify them apart from God, which will lead to the idolatry.

If the Iranian Muslim people and their government put their trust in God alone, and refrain from the enthusiasm about the imams - salam to them - and the family of the Prophet, they will be triumphant against their enemy, or else they will not.

Quran 3: 160, which means:
( If God helps you [against your enemies], none can overcome you;
but if He forsakes you
h , who then can help you other than Him? i

Therefore, in God [alone] let believers put all their trust.)
.................................................. ...............

160 h If you seek help of those apart from Him.

160 i It means: seek God's help against your enemy and ask victory from Him in order to help you with victory, but never seek the help of others for then He will forsake you.

This is not related to being Shia or Sunni, but every enthusiasm about the imams or the companions of the Prophet is wrong and will lead to the idolatry.

http://www.quran-ayat.com/hour/an_ho...e_Hidden_Truth
quran-ayat.com/hour/an_hour_with_ghosts.htm#Unveiling_of_the_Hidden_Tr uth

So the Iran Muslim people should unite together and be alert to the devils among the Zionists of Tel Aviv and their allies (like Johnnny ) who work to divide the Iranian people so as to weaken them.

================================================== ====

Free thinking men and men with firm will among the Iranian Muslim people should work with zeal to fight the traditions that are not commanded in the Quran and to purify people from customs and habits that do not agree with the Quran .. and they will certainly be victorious and will prosper.

What does that even mean?? LOL


Allowing 'the West' to win construction contracts will see 15% completed using the oldest parts possible and the other 85% has no profit margin for them so it stalls there and decades pass and nothing changes.

Dealing with China and India would mean a slow start as they ramp up production for that line of products but at least when it is done it is as modern as possible and that means maintenance free for 50 years or so.


The West is also not in a position to be letting out big contracts, they are scrambling to save what is left of the manufacturing base. The Bronco will become 'the People's car'. That 'down time' is either used to rebuild or destroy what is left and the fattest people take it all.

I appreciate your words here, MHz.

Some points here are worth mentioning:
1- Iran (and me also) does not like or wish for any conflict.
2- I hope for the peace and prosperity of Iran and all other countries of the world.
3- Such words that I said in this thread are only intended to show the way that Iran (and every other country in the world) will gain the dignity and prosperity if they follow the 'devotion to God alone'.
4- If individuals and states follow the commandments of God (in the heavenly books), they will be at excellent condition, and if they oppose such commandments, they will be corrupt and will lose.

This can be seen in the Book of Levites or Leviticus, chapter 26: that is to be with God, or to be against God.

Quran 14: 7, which means:
([O Jews], remember when your Lord was requested j [by your enemies to fight you but He did not permit them to do that; and He said to you]:
"If you are thankful, I will surely increase you[r blessing]; but if you are ungrateful, My punishment is terrible indeed [to the disbeliever and denier of My bounties.]"
)
.................................................. ...................

7 j The meaning: Mohammed, mention to the [Jews] the story of the Sidonians , when you came to them and to their country; they asked God’s permission to fight you, but He did not permit them, then they asked His permission to welcome you and give you food and drink, and He permitted them to do so. This was some of His bounties to you; so you should thank Him for it.


The story : When the Israelite set forth in their exodus out of Egypt, and they approached the city of the Sidonians, their king gathered the chiefs and ministers and said to them: “The Children of Israel has approached us, and they are so many, and we cannot fight them, so what shall we do?”

After discussion, they said to him: “Consult God.”
So he wrote two signboards and hung them on the wall: on the first, he wrote: “I should fight them”, and he wrote on the other one: “I should welcome them with food and drink and hospitability.”

Then he threw an arrow towards them, and the arrow fell on the second; therefore, they took food and drink and went out to welcome them. Their story is mentioned in the Bible, the Book of Exodus.

http://quran-ayat.com/pret/14.htm#a14_7
quran-ayat.com/pret/14.htm#a14_7

================================================== ===

This (event of the Sidonian) happened when the Israelite (together with Moses) were devoted to God alone, while the same event (of Nabuchodonosor) happened when the Israelite fell in the idolatry and were against God.

Quran 7: 167, which means:
([Remember, O Mohammed] that your Lord did [many times] give permission a [requested by the enemies of Jews] that ..
[Here God – be glorified – swore and said:]
He would send against [Jews] till the Doomsday , those who should visit them with evil chastisement;

[O Mohammed] your Lord surely is Swift at punishment [for wrong-doers], Most Forgiving [to those who repent], and Most Merciful [to those who regret.]
)
.................................................. ..........

167 a i.e. the enemies of Jews asked God for permission to fight the Jews, and He permitted them that.

Ancient people had a custom that they consulted God by lots of arrows: so they wrote "Do" on a piece of parchment or a board, and on another one they wrote "Don't do", then they threw it with an arrow, so if the arrow hits the first, they say: "Our Lord permits us to do that!" But if it hits the second, they say: "He does not permit us that!"

So Nabuchodonosor took an arrow and asked God's permission to fight the Children of Israel, and he threw the arrow which fell on the first one on which was written "Do"; therefore, he marched with his army, fought and overcame them.
And this in fact is the meaning of ([Remember, O Mohammed] that your Lord did [many times] give permission); i.e. they asked Him to permit them to fight the Jews and He permitted them to do so.

The exodus wars was a program designed to exterminate all 6 fingered people as that was a requirement for the Law that governed the earth was changed from the Re:21 one to the 10 Commandments. A remnant from all the nations made up of 5 fingered people were married into the 12 Tribes. That shows the Jews are a conglomeration of people from all over the place rather than a selective group that shuns outsiders.

Iran can retaliate militarily very easily. The US (with allies such as Canada) frequently sail fleets through the Straits of Hormuz into the Persian Gulf. The issue is that the Person Gulf is very shallow, the Straits very narrow and carriers have comparatively little ability to manoever, there. The Strait of Hormuz could be blocked and sealed quite easily, too and the Iranians could trap an entire carrier task force in shallow, hostile waters with minimal effort. They could then besiege that carrier and it's escorts with anti-ship missiles until it either sinks or is permanently disabled. Could the air arm on the carrier shoot it's way out? Not without help and it is more likely that they would be evacuated off of the carrier to land bases like Diego Garcia.

Science fiction?

Big maybe.

In order to be successful and win in the present conflict with Washington and Tel Aviv ... the Iranian People should become with God alone:

>> To glorify God alone without glorifying others like the imams and their tombs and shrines.
>> To refrain from the enthusiasm about the Prophet and his family members and about Imam Ali and his sons.
>> To love God more than loving others.
>> To devote their religious worship to God alone.

The reason why Jews and Christians have been set on Muslims :
Muslims have the Quran, yet they do not work according to its teachings .. particularly as regards to the true monotheism: (the devotion to God alone: glorifying Him alone apart from the imams and religious figures)

In fact Muslims have fallen in the idolatry: the enthusiasm about the imams and the companions of the prophet .. Muslims started to construct the tombs of the imams and to glorify these graves .. they seek help of imams rather than God's help, they give charity not for God alone, but for the love of the Prophet and the sons of Imam Ali.

Yes, indeed, we should love these imams and take them as examples in piety and righteousness.. but we should not magnify and glorify their persons and graves .. we love them, but our love to God must be more than loving others even though they are the Prophet family and Ali and his sons.

So this is the idolatry or the associating of these imams with God.
Therefore, when Muslims understand this and believe in God alone .. God then will be with them .. Muslims will then be dignified and united while their enemy: the idolaters, disbelievers and blasphemers will deteriorate and divide among themselves, and God's hand will be with Muslims who devote themselves to God alone without associate .

Of course being a Zionist, you cannot keep silent, and cannot say other than such bubbling.

Know also that Jews and Christians have been set on Muslims at present, just as had Nebuchadnezzar been set on the Israelite in the past.

But this will change when Muslims have their wisdom and devote themselves to God alone without associating the imams and the companions of the prophet and their tombs.

God, the Creator, is Most Gracious and Most Merciful and Most Kind and Compassionate: He makes the mother kind to her baby.

God commands peace and goodness, but people choose the evil and transgression .. but God will not leave the transgressor and will not equal the guilty like the innocent .. this is His law of life and for all people.

Moreover, leaving the transgressor and the wrong-doer to his caprice and desire will corrupt people's life, and God misguides such transgressor and wrong-doer so as he will be a disbeliever.

Now disbelievers will not leave people to worship God, but will always and by all means fight the worshiping of God, and it will be necessary that God averts the disbelievers by the hand of believers.

Quran 22: 40, which means:
(Had it not been for that God restrains people: some men by means of others D ,
cloisters [of Christians, which are on mountains and in the rural areas],
and churches
and prayers [would have been forsaken]
and [the Muslim places of worship: the] mosques – wherein God's name is mentioned much [in the times of the five prayers every day] would have been destroyed
E .
But God will surely help those who help His [cause]; surely God is Most Powerful, All-Mighty.)

Explanatory notes of the previous aya:
40 D It means: Had it not been that God set the believers on the disbelievers and they killed and terminated them, the disbelief would have prevailed, the prayers and God’s worship forsaken, and the mosques and the places of worship would have been destroyed, as in the following sentence in the aya.
40 E The Jewish places of worship are called the K'nesset or the Synagogue , while Sabaeans call them: Mandi .

Maybe you don't realize it, but proselytizing by any religion outside a church synagogue or mosque etc. etc. turns people off, unless they already believe in what you're saying!

My comment about the previous aya:

This indicates that even though disbelievers claim of words like freedom, liberty, humanity, human rights, democracy etc .. but actually they frankly fight God's religion and will not leave believers to their own worship or devotion ..

In fact, disbelievers will strive to abolish the God's worship and to destroy the places of God's worship like the mosques (masjids), the cloisters, the churches, the synagauges, the k'nesset .. etc.

So it is essential that God set believers on disbelievers to fight them and prevent them from destroying the places of God's worship and prevent them from abolishing the prayers .. or else the disbelief would have prevailed.

Is a False Flag different than a False Storm created by the Environmental Industrial Complex?

I like Led Zeppelin but only a handful really know what it sounds like when the levee breaks.

updated 12/7/2005 8:38:47 PM ET

Were the levees bombed in New Orleans?

By Lisa Myers & the NBC Investigative Unit
WASHINGTON — It's become a strongly held belief by some in the storm zone — the idea that the destruction of New Orleans’ heavily poor, heavily black Ninth Ward was neither an accident nor an act of nature.

Dyan French, also known as “Mama D,” is a New Orleans Citizen and Community Leader. She testified before the House Select Committee on Hurricane Katrina on Tuesday.

“I was on my front porch. I have witnesses that they bombed the walls of the levee, boom, boom!” Mama D said, holding her head. “Mister, I'll never forget it.”

“Certainly appears to me to be an act of genocide and of ethnic cleansing,” Leah Hodges, another New Orleans citizen, told the committee.

Similar statements, sometimes couched as rumors, have also been voiced by Louis Farrakhan, leader of the nation of Islam, and director Spike Lee.

“I don't find it too far-fetched,” Lee said in a recent television interview, “that they try to displace all the black people out of New Orleans.”

Harvard's Alvin Pouissant says such conspiracy theories are fueled by years of government neglect and discrimination against blacks: slavery, segregation and the Tuskegee experiments, during which poor blacks were used to test the effects of syphilis.

“If you're angry and you've been discriminated against,” Pouissant says, “then your mind is open to many ideas about persecution, abandonment, feelings of rejection.”

The latest theory is partly rooted in historical fact. In 1927, the levees were bombed to save parts of the city, and black neighborhoods were inundated.

But independent engineers investigating levee failures during Katrina say that's not what happened this time.

Prof. Robert Bea, from the University of California, Berkeley, studied the levee failures and his team issued a preliminary report.

“We didn’t find any evidence that would indicate explosions,” says Bea.

New Orleans columnist Lolis Eric Elie says the federal government badly neglected black Americans during Katrina, but he does not believe the levees were blown up.

“One of the problems with that theory,” Elie says, “is that there were a whole lot of other areas of the city, including some that are predominantly white, where there was flooding.”

Harvard's Pouissant also says that latching on to conspiracy theories is a way for the powerless to cope with terrible losses — incendiary claims born of an enormous tragedy.

How a suspected Iran-based campaign tried to get Canadian media to spread fake news

Quote:

An online disinformation campaign believed to originate from Iran tried to get Canadian media to amplify fake news, a CBC/Radio-Canada analysis has found. And in at least one instance, it was successful.
The campaign was first discovered by researchers at the University of Toronto's Citizen Lab, who detailed their findings in a report published last week. Dubbed Endless Mayfly, the campaign relied on short-lived fake news stories that disappeared after being propagated by unwitting targets.
CBC downloaded thousands of Endless Mayfly tweets identified by Citizen Lab researchers and searched for references to Canada. CBC also inspected each account mentioned in the tweets to identify Canadian Twitter users. This revealed that while the campaign targeted thousands of Twitter users around the globe, a slice of the effort specifically focused on Canadian accounts.
Throughout 2016 and 2017, some of these accounts targeted 12 Canadian media outlets, including the CBC, to drum up attention for a fake story claiming the CIA backed a failed coup in Turkey.
Another tweet tried to get Le Journal de Montréal, a French-language daily, to cover a false story that claimed Saudi Arabia was supporting then-presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron in the 2017 French election. The article was hosted on a fake version of Belgian news site Le Soir and was eventually shared on Twitter by far-right French politician Marion Maréchal-Le Pen.
In a few instances, this media-baiting worked. Reuters, for example, reported on a fake story cooked up by Endless Mayfly which said that six Arab countries had asked FIFA to disallow Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup. The story had been published on a dummy mock-up of a Swiss news site.
Global News picked up the Reuters story and later corrected it.
While the Citizen Lab researchers cannot definitively point a finger at the Iranian government, they wrote that they "find with moderate confidence that Iran or an Iran-aligned actor is the most plausible explanation" based on evidence gathered. Their analysis shows that the pieces of fake news pushed by the network closely align with Iranian interests.
"It's hard to definitively pin down what their objective was, but I think it was to get their stories into mainstream media," said Gabrielle Lim, lead author of the report. "I think the objective was to sow geopolitical division between traditional adversaries of Iran, like Israel, Saudi Arabia and Western countries like the U.S."
The role of social media
Another component of Endless Mayfly was attempting to get false stories published by alternative media outlets around the globe. Twitter users posing as independent reporters tried to contact several outlets, offering to collaborate. One of these outlets was The Rebel, a far-right Canadian news and commentary site run by the outspoken Ezra Levant.
There's no indication that anyone using The Rebel's Twitter account responded to the fake account associated with the name Brian H. Hayden, described in his profile as a "freelance journalist."
However, Montreal-based website Global Research did. The site publishes stories promoting theories that have been debunked, such as chemtrails. In 2017, Global Research published two articles purportedly written by Hayden, both identified by researchers as stemming from Endless Mayfly.
One article claimed that Israel and Turkey were trying to sow division in the Middle East by supporting an independent Kurdistan in Iraq. The other claimed that former Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif was a stooge of Saudi Arabia.
CBC reached out to Global Research for comment but has not yet heard back.

Another call to the Iranian People and Government :

This call concerns all Muslims and all people in general whether Muslims or not:

Glorify God alone, and refrain from the enthusiasm about others like the imams, the prophets, the kings and the righteous people, and refrain from the enthusiasm about Jesus Christ, and about Ali and his sons .. just worship God alone without associate or peer.

So the Iranian people and government: leave the enthusiasm about the imams and their tombs .. but glorify God alone and hold fast with the Quran .. and then you will prosper and will overcome your enemies ..

or else the opposite will be the outcome when people will seek help of Ali and his sons, and when they pray the imams and ask their needs from their tombs.
