The Iranian Regime’s Days May Be Numbered

January 10, 2018 by


By Dr. Michael Ledeen ~ Is it a revolution? Can it succeed? Should we support it, and if so, how? Surely this tumult is very different from the protests of 2009. It’s different in at least two ways, geographical and demographical. Geographically, whereas the 2009 protests were mainly limited to Tehran, today’s phenomenon covers the […]

By James Phillips ~ Iran has been rocked by a wave of protests against the Islamist regime since Dec. 28.

The Story of Taraneh Mousavi

February 4, 2012 by


By Amil Imani ~ Rape is a cruel violation of a helpless victim. In addition to the physical torment involved, rape reduces the victim to subhuman status.

Negotiating With the Devil

December 22, 2011 by


By Amil Imani Iran’s mullahs have repeatedly indicated their willingness and ability to help restore order in Iraq, on the condition that the United States packs up and leaves the region. And now that US forces have left Iraq, the Islamic regime clearly is one of the strategic winners in this deadly game. The mullahs […]

Stop Iran’s Mullahs and Support the Iranian People

December 3, 2011 by


By Amil Imani and Arash Irandoost The illegitimate government of the Islamic Republic of Iran is a “quisling” entity that has betrayed its people, its traditions, its glorious pre-Islamic achievements, and is working against Iran’s national interest. Iran, under the stranglehold and machinations of the Mullahs, has been transformed, in less than three decades, as […]

Does Obama Know the Difference between Great Britain and England?

November 30, 2011 by


By Nile Gardiner It is gratifying to see President Barack Obama condemn the disgraceful storming of the British Embassy in Tehran by thugs acting at the behest of the Iranian regime. After all, Obama has been notoriously slow in the past to criticise the brutal actions of the Iranian government after initially extending the hand […]

Iran: Blinding The World With Science

January 17, 2010 by


Satire by  Shawn Goodwin It has been a difficult six months for the Islamic Republic of Iran. Last June’s presidential elections were about as fair as an American Idol vote, and equally as puzzling.

Iran In 2010

December 30, 2009 by


FROM ONE YEAR TO THE NEXT The world watches as the Iranians battle against the illegitimate Ahmadinejad regime that stole the last election and set up show trials of the opposition.

An Absentee And Complacent President

December 29, 2009 by


By Rory Cooper By now, you’ve heard the news.  On Christmas Day, a 23-year-old Nigerian named Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab tried to blow a full Northwest Airlines jet out of the air above Detroit. The only events that stopped this from happening were courageous passengers and a faulty explosive device. If either one of these two […]

Obama’s Filter

July 6, 2009 by

Women Of Iran: Throw Down Your Headscarves

June 25, 2009 by


By Ruth King When the French résistance was fighting the Nazis in 1940, the British and the Americans encouraged them with oratory but withheld any material help.
