Vladimir Putin Won’t Expel U.S. Diplomats as Russian Foreign Minister Urged

In a head-spinning turn of events on Friday, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia announced that he would not retaliate against the United States’ expulsion of Russian diplomats and new sanctions — hours after his foreign minister recommended doing just that.

They Were Promised the Sea


The film exposes the political maneuvering that separated communities that had lived together for thousands of years, and also gives voice to those who resisted and continue to resist the separation of Arab and Jew.

Iraj khan, it seems you know the names and biography of all of the jews very well. Iranians don't care that much about those people and don't know their names either.

Netanyahu has been under investigation for taking bribes for the past 20 years, their last president, Moshe Katsav, who was convicted for raping 4 of his female employees was just released from prison, the previous prime minister, Ehud Olmert, just started his prison term for taking bribe.
Meanwhile the Jews confiscated more native Palestinians' land. justice for Jews but not for the Palestinians. No wonder Jesus and his followers rebeled against the Jewish establishment in Palestine.

Isn't paradoxical how Russian military killing machine is so efficient when it comes to bombing the bejesus out of defenseless civilians and aid convoys, but when it comes to simple transportation or landing fighter jets on aircraft carriers all of a sudden it's not so efficient after all.
13 Novemebr, MiG-29K fighter plane crashes as it attempts to land on the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier.
5 December, a Sukhoi-33 fighter plane crashed as it attempted to land aboard the same carrier.
And now this.

This is a historic decision by the Obama administration!

“This is the first time in almost four decades that such a resolution has been passed,” Sherine Tadros, head of Amnesty International’s U.N. office, said in a statement. “Israel’s settlement policy is inherently discriminatory and has resulted in grave human rights violations including destruction of homes, forced evictions, unlawful killings, arbitrary detentions and collective punishment. The Security Council must now ensure this resolution is respected.”

An excellent move and hopefully the beginning of many other moves by the international community to end Israeli government's apartheid policies and occupation of Palestinian lands.

Absolutely horrible and inexcusable behavior, period.
Just when you think you'll never feel sorry for or have any sympathy towards Trump's kids incidents like this pop up and...
Just horrendous.

It is time for Obama to make up at least for part of his missteps in the ME, although I have serious doubts that he would do it.

هجرانی

جهان را بنگر سراسر
که به رختِ رخوتِ خوابِ خرابِ خود
از خویش بیگانه است.

و ما را بنگر
بیدار
که هُشیوارانِ غمِ خویشیم.
خشم‌آگین و پرخاشگر
از اندوهِ تلخِ خویش پاسداری می‌کنیم،
نگهبانِ عبوسِ رنجِ خویشیم
تا از قابِ سیاهِ وظیفه‌یی که بر گِردِ آن کشیده‌ایم
خطا نکند.


و جهان را بنگر
جهان را
در رخوتِ معصومانه‌ی خوابش
که از خویش چه بیگانه است!







ماه می‌گذرد
در انتهای مدارِ سردش.
ما مانده‌ایم و
روز
نمی‌آید.

The future of Syria look very bleak, mainly due to foreign intervention of Assad's allies and continued Saudi meddling through its Jihadi thugs. Damascus will effectively be run by Tehran and Saudi thugs will dominate opposition to Assad as they have been doing in the past few years. What both these sides have in common is their visions for a sectarian engineered map of Syria.
Assad might be in control of "The Useful Syria" (the corridor between Damascus and Aleppo), while the rest of the country will remain fragmented and the opposition to Assad dominated by Saudi back Jihadi thugs.
As Robin Yassin Kassab* has mentioned the process of 'Palestinisation' of the Syrian people has begun. Aleppo and Syria have simply been abandoned by the world.
