World Press Photo - ACT OF FORGIVENESS
15 April 2014
Nour-Mazandaran, Iran

In December 2007, Abdollah, a 17-year-old boy, was killed in a street brawl in the Wednesday market in Nour by his childhood friend Balal. Balal was charged with murder and the complicated prosecution took seven years until he was sentenced to death.

Balal was due to be executed by hanging in the early morning of 15 April 2014. But moments before the sun rose, the victim’s mother, Samera Alinejad, decided to pardon Balal by slapping his face instead of pulling the chair from underneath his feet. In Islamic law, #execution s must be carried out before sunrise. After the images of this act of forgiveness were published, the lives of about 25 other murder convicts were spared.
Nour-Mazandaran, Iran The victim's parents help remove the noose from around Balal's neck. Iran has one of the highest rates of executions carried out. Some of these executions are public.

US-Israel ties worsen over alleged leak of details in #Iran talks

"They see the Israelis given access to the most sensitive part of the negotiations, like no other allies, and then using that information to blast the administration," he said. "You can see why they feel betrayed. ... I can't remember a case where a U.S. ally has done something like this."

A CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday found that 56 percent of Americans 50 or older believe the U.S. should remain impartial in the #Israeli - #Palestinian dispute. The figure jumps to 75 percent for Americans younger than 50.

Every man will fail with their own wife or even friends, one way or another.

I never asked anyone to agree with me. Everyone is entitled to their opinions.

Yes plz do that! Reread all posts especially those hateful post by ur brothers in Christianity.

I too dislike personal attacks to my religion without having full understanding of it.

I too long for better peaceful future. It's everyone's responsibility to make sure that happens. Regardless of religions n races.

I m not a crazy woman! I don't hate ppl unnecessarily. If I hate someone, there must b reasons.

If v wish to criticize others, criticize our own self first.

It's B+ and Farrokh bought it about 32$. I'm not sure it will support Windows 10 or not. It has a 512MB RAM with a single core 700MHz Broadcom BCM2835 CPU.

Message of ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, Leader of The Islamic Republic of Iran To the Youth in Europe and North America

In the name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful

To the Youth in Europe and North America,

The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them. I am addressing you, [the youth], not because I overlook your parents, rather it is because the future of your nations and countries will be in your hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your hearts.

I don’t address your politicians and statesmen either in this writing because I believe that they have consciously separated the route of politics from the path of righteousness and truth.

I would like to talk to you about Islam, particularly the image that is presented to you as Islam. Many attempts have been made over the past two decades, almost since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, to place this great religion in the seat of a horrifying enemy. The provocation of a feeling of horror and hatred and its utilization has unfortunately a long record in the political history of the West.

Here, I don’t want to deal with the different phobias with which the Western nations have thus far been indoctrinated. A cursory review of recent critical studies of history would bring home to you the fact that the Western governments’ insincere and hypocritical treatment of other nations and cultures has been censured in new historiographies.

The histories of the United States and Europe are ashamed of slavery, embarrassed by the colonial period and chagrined at the oppression of people of color and non-Christians. Your researchers and historians are deeply ashamed of the bloodsheds wrought in the name of religion between the Catholics and Protestants or in the name of nationality and ethnicity during the First and Second World Wars. This approach is admirable.

By mentioning a fraction of this long list, I don’t want to reproach history; rather I would like you to ask your intellectuals as to why the public conscience in the West awakens and comes to its senses after a delay of several decades or centuries. Why should the revision of collective conscience apply to the distant past and not to the current problems? Why is it that attempts are made to prevent public awareness regarding an important issue such as the treatment of Islamic culture and thought?

You know well that humiliation and spreading hatred and illusionary fear of the “other” have been the common base of all those oppressive profiteers. Now, I would like you to ask yourself why the old policy of spreading “phobia” and hatred has targeted Islam and Muslims with an unprecedented intensity. Why does the power structure in the world want Islamic thought to be marginalized and remain latent? What concepts and values in Islam disturb the programs of the super powers and what interests are safeguarded in the shadow of distorting the image of Islam? Hence, my first request is: Study and research the incentives behind this widespread tarnishing of the image of Islam.

My second request is that in reaction to the flood of prejudgments and disinformation campaigns, try to gain a direct and firsthand knowledge of this religion. The right logic requires that you understand the nature and essence of what they are frightening you about and want you to keep away from.

I don’t insist that you accept my reading or any other reading of Islam. What I want to say is: Don’t allow this dynamic and effective reality in today’s world to be introduced to you through resentments and prejudices. Don’t allow them to hypocritically introduce their own recruited terrorists as representatives of Islam.

Receive knowledge of Islam from its primary and original sources. Gain information about Islam through the Qur’an and the life of its great Prophet. I would like to ask you whether you have directly read the Qur’an of the Muslims. Have you studied the teachings of the Prophet of Islam and his humane, ethical doctrines? Have you ever received the message of Islam from any sources other than the media?

Have you ever asked yourself how and on the basis of which values has Islam established the greatest scientific and intellectual civilization of the world and raised the most distinguished scientists and intellectuals throughout several centuries?

I would like you not to allow the derogatory and offensive image-buildings to create an emotional gulf between you and the reality, taking away the possibility of an impartial judgment from you. Today, the communication media have removed the geographical borders. Hence, don’t allow them to besiege you within fabricated and mental borders.

Although no one can individually fill the created gaps, each one of you can construct a bridge of thought and fairness over the gaps to illuminate yourself and your surrounding environment. While this preplanned challenge between Islam and you, the youth, is undesirable, it can raise new questions in your curious and inquiring minds. Attempts to find answers to these questions will provide you with an appropriate opportunity to discover new truths.

Therefore, don’t miss the opportunity to gain proper, correct and unbiased understanding of Islam so that hopefully, due to your sense of responsibility toward the truth, future generations would write the history of this current interaction between Islam and the West with a clearer conscience and lesser resentment.

#Netanyahu does not speak for all American #Jews
by +Rebecca Vilkomerson 

A couple of weeks ago, Jewish Voice for Peace and a coalition of allies initiated an online campaign to ask our elected officials to ?skipthespeech as a strong statement against warmongering and electioneering. Over 55,000 people have since taken action. Other progressive groups have issued similar calls.

Trends indicate a growing discomfort with Israeli actions among many Americans, including people of color and young Jews. Elected Democratic officials may increasingly find support among their base for taking a clear stand against warmongering and Israel’s assumed unconditional support by the U.S. Skipping the speech is turning out not just to be good policy, but good politics.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is facing unexpectedly strong pressure to withdraw from a planned March 3 speech to a joint session of Congress. The invitation from House Speaker John Boehner bypassed President Obama entirely. Intended to sway U.S. policy on Iran and support Netanyahu’s re-election bid, the invitation is eliciting unprecedented opposition.

Netanyahu and Boehner are wrong to think they know what Iran wants
by +Barnett Rubin 

"Rouhani does not argue that Iran has no choice but to give in to pressure: instead he proposes a different vision of Iran’s relationship to the world, a belief in the potential for cooperation. He faces a powerful establishment that sees the U.S. with pretty much the same cognitive biases through which Boehner and Netanyahu view Iran. That establishment will interpret more threats as proof that the U.S. will not remove sanctions whatever Iran does. It is in our interest to prove Rouhani right by giving him the chance to prove the hardliners wrong..."

Here’s a fun little exercise for you. Go Google the phrase (in quotes) “the Republican senator from Israel.” :)
The White House is rightly apoplectic about Netanyahu’s address to Congress, but will Obama or Hillary sack up and let the Israelis know that it’s time for a new PM?
