Nest spy or hostage crisis?

One of the important and decisive of the Islamic Revolution, the American spy nest by the students follow the line of Imam Khomeini in 1358 ‪ thirteenth November is due to its large dimensions inside and outside the country’s “second revolution” was called.

This interpretation is necessary for understanding the complex dimensions of the various aspects of political, security, legal, economic and cultural issues should be considered. The continuing students who started in 22 of 15 Persian date Khordad 1342 Persian date Bahman 1357 had succeeded, but the Islamic Revolution could not survive without drying the roots of colonialism and the Iranian people must struggle to avoid repeating their historical experience in Persian date Mordad 28 in 1332 the country had continued.

At the beginning of the interim government and the state, across the country, were movements to the political climate is tense and complicated. Center of all this intrigue and counter-currents, which later turned out, the American Embassy in Tehran.

Through the nest, the line of defense, that always means it will create fear, and collapsed after the failure of successive American military action and diplomacy to rescue hostages, demolished the myth of America being impervious and showed that the broad and relying on the people of America can be defeated.

The American Embassy, the Office for activities under the Embassy officers engaged in espionage work there. All successful and unsuccessful operations officers in the office and American influence in government or military centers with registered letters and signs, password and the American State Department telex is. It documents the Office of the American embassies in the world as soon as I have attempted to hide or destroy it.

CIA spying on American embassies in foreign countries is the main focus. With this style spy embassies in developing countries is very noteworthy. CIA since its creation in 1974 has three independent units. These three units are:

Collecting foreign intelligence service.1

Intelligence operations and counter-intelligence service. 2.

                                                                                     Secret interventions in the Foreign Service.3

Congress officially established the first two services during the review and approval of the plan was approved the establishment of the CIA but The third service will always remain invisible and the invisible and

informal work in foreign countries continued.

All American riots and coups in foreign countries with the American Embassy officers are, without exception, will be led by the Department. CIA agents in foreign countries are usually in the guise of diplomatic activity. They penetrate the responsibility of political parties, student groups, labor unions, media, military and administrative centers are responsible and so that CIA agents who try to infiltrate the military, military dependents in the Embassy of such duties are not.

The spy nest documents obtained from the American Embassy in Tehran shows that the American unit called “operational centers” there. The heads of the leading centers of espionage operations in various countries are responsible for the field mission. Such people generally covered by diplomatic immunity and diplomatic activities are.

n, while announcing the trip that imam Khomeini refusal to meet them, met with the Council of Islamic Revolution and all its officials may be counted provided that the board will deliver, that the American aircraft carrier in the sky, their direction changed towards Turkey.

- Contact the American West with some relief that he believed, could do something in order to release the hostages, like Bani Sadr and GhotbZadeh.

-Deployment of intermediary entities or countries that could speak with the

officials of our country, like Pakistan, Palestinians or “Hassanein Heikal” Egyptian journalist and eventually pop.

-To pressure the United States under its influence in international forums to condemn or decision against Iran, such as the United Nations and its Secretary General, “curettes Valdhaym”, the UN Security Council, the Organization of Islamic Conference, the common market in Europe, the Court Hague and the international Red Cross.

The public diplomacy of Obama administration toward Iran

The United States uses public diplomacy tools in its foreign policy toward Iran and the focus on exploiting this kind of diplomacy could be attributed to some factors such as a lack of traditional relationship between two countries and high importance of world public opinion in general and Iranian public opinion in specific. The public diplomacy and strategic communications experts within the U.S. government are exploiting the potential of new social media to gain the hearts and minds outside America, especially Iran.

Addressing the Iranian public opinion, U.S. intends to provide a ground for exerting and implementing the desired policies within the framework of Iranian sovereignty. As public affairs blogger Matt Armstrong writes: “In this age of mass information and precision- » Read more

Impacts of European sanction against Iran

On January 23, under the US pressure, the EU foreign ministers approved new sanctions against Tehran to prevent the union’s member states from buying the Iranian crude OIL or doing business with the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) and to freeze Iranian assets across the union. The sanctions went into effect as of Sunday, July 1.

Sanction against Iran will cause undesired result for other countries especially European union. Unilateral sanctions against Iran will have a negative impact on reaching an acceptable resolution. Sanctions have always failed to have an impact on the Iranian nation’s resolve to achieve progress and they will continue to fail in future. In addition to this any EU-engineered measure against Iran’s » Read more

The role of Twitter in the post-election unrests

In his 1984 book, George Orwell refers to government efforts to shrink the public opinion for political stability and to carry out its objectives. This opinion shrinking could be interpreted as limiting speech language and express different emotions. Mind Control as interpreted by the government, according to some experts, can be seen in social networking. In particular, Twitter could be an instance of Orwell’s theory on shrinking and summing up the feelings and opinions expressed by the governments. Twitter has been known as the second most popular social network in the world after Facebook.

United States of America uses from public diplomacy tools in its relationship with Iran. U.S experts on public diplomacy and strategic communications within government are exploiting the potential of new social media in order to penetrate into the hearts and opinions of outsiders especially in Iran.

Twitter is a form of social network service and online microblogging which allows its users to send and read text-based posts of up to 140 characters, known as “tweets”. Jack Dorsey invented Twitter in June 2006. It quickly gained popularity in the global, with more than 140 million active users since 2012 which tweet 340 million posts every day. Twitter has been described as “Internet short message”.

Summarizing the messages in 140 characters, using the good or bad words for describing the issues and dividing them into black or white could be defined in this way. The inclusion of feelings, interests and opinions in only 140 characters is one of these examples. According to media and social network’ experts, limiting the language really destroy it. The language has been invented in order to express the opinions openly and limiting it means limiting the human thinking.

Like Facebook and other social networks, Twitter at first was developed with the aim of sharing and social communication. But, an overview on its develop trend shows that its goals has been changed over time. The most important point is the large information bank of users which draw the attention of any security and intelligent service to monitor and collect information about users.

Twitter has had many applications since it launched. For example, it has been used in some countries to organize the political protests. That’s why they called these protests “twitter revolutions” such as Egypt revolution in 2011, protests following 2009-2010 election in Iran and the civil unrest in 2009 in Moldavia. After that, the wave of tweets and communication reached Libya and Bahrain.

The other point is the use of social networks as an effective tool in these countries which do not agree western countries’ policies. Social networks such as Facebook and twitter turned from communication network among friends to a place for organizing protests, publishing news (mostly untrue), and virtual protests. Now if these networks support civil movements against the will of western countries – like Palestine supporting campaigns, Wall Street movements, anti-war activists, prominent anti-west active pages, … - networks’ managers along with political experts will assess and study these pages and in case of public interest, they will closed or omitted.

Massive sending of short messages with certain political views, organizing domestic protests, creating chaos in the target countries, creating fake IDs to connect with people for certain goals and suggesting specific ideas to affect the public opinion are among the tools that have been used by the US government against Iran in 2009.

 

Recently turned out that the US government made a deal with “HB Gray Federal” software co. to design different softwares that enable them to create fake profiles in social networks. The main goal is to simulate the public opinion with propagandas. They have also used this method to find and identify oppositions. Then they can use these fake IDs to stain other campaigns. However, this is not the first » Read more

Obama is trying to influence Iranian people and policies through his new initiative. Through reaching out Iranian audiences, Obama struggles to convince Iranian government give up its nuclear program, according to » Read more

zakat

-One of the most important principles of Islam is that all things belong to God, and that wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust.

The word Zakat means both ‘purification’ and ‘growth’. Our possessions are purified by setting aside a proportion for those in need, and, like the pruning of plants, this cutting back balances and encourages new growth.

Zakat is the amount of money that every adult, mentally stable, free, and financially able Muslim, male and female, has to pay to support specific categories people.

This category of people is defined in surah at-Taubah (9) verse 60: “The alms are only for the poor and the needy, and those who collect them, and those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to free the captives and the debtors, and for the cause of Allah, and (for) the wayfarers; a duty imposed by Allah. Allah is knower, Wise.” (The Holy Qur’an 9:60).

The obligatory nature of Zakat is firmly established in the Qur’an, the Sunnah (or hadith), and the consensus of the companions and the Muslim scholars. Allah states in Surah at-Taubah verses 34-35: “O ye who believe! there are indeed many among the priests and anchorites, who in Falsehood devour the substance of men and hinder (them) from the way of Allah. And there are those who bury gold and silver and spend it not in the way of Allah. announce unto them a most grievous penalty - On the Day when heat will be produced out of that (wealth) in the fire of Hell, and with it will be branded their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs, their flanks, and their backs.- “This is the (treasure) which ye buried for yourselves: taste ye, then, the (treasures) ye buried!” (The Holy Qur’an 9:34-35).

It is agreed between Muslims in all the centuries the obligatory nature of paying Zakat for gold and silver, and from those the other kinds of currency.

Zakat is obligatory when a certain amount of money, called the nisab is reached or exceeded. Zakat is not obligatory if the amount owned is less than this nisab. The nisab (or minimum amount) of gold and golden currency is 20 mithqal, this is approximately 85 grams of pure gold. One mithqal is approximately 4.25 grams. The nisab of silver and silver currency is 200 dirhams, which is approximately 595 grams of pure silver. The nisab of other kinds of money and currency is to be scaled to that of gold, 85 grams of pure gold. This means that the nisab of money is the price of 85 grams of 999-type (pure) gold, on the day in which Zakat is paid. (Current Gold Prices)

When is Zakat Due ?

1. Passage of One Lunar Year:

Zakat is obligatory after a time span of one lunar year passes with the money in the control of it’s owner. Then the owner needs to pay 2.5% (or 1/40) of the money as Zakat. (A lunar year is approximately 355 days).

2. Deduction of Debts:

The owner should deduct any amount of money he or she borrowed from others; then check if the rest reaches the necessary nisab, then pays Zakat for it.

If the owner had enough money to satisfy the nisab at the beginning of the year, then the money increased (in profits, salaries, inheritance, grants…etc.), the owner needs to add the increase to the nisab amount owned at the beginning of the year; then pay Zakat, 2.5%, of the total at the end of the lunar year. (there are small differences in the fiqh schools here)

Each Muslim calculates his or her own Zakat individually. For most purposes this involves the payment each year of two and a half percent of one’s capital. (Zakat Calculator)

A pious person may also give as much as he or she pleases as sadaqa, and does so preferably in secret. Although this word can be translated as ‘voluntary charity’ it has a wider meaning. The Prophet said ‘even meeting your brother with a cheerful face is charity.’

The Prophet said: ‘Charity is a necessity for every Muslim. ‘ He was asked: ‘What if a person has nothing?’ The Prophet replied: ‘He should work with his own hands for his benefit and then give something out of such earnings in charity.’ The Companions asked: ‘What if he is not able to work?’ The Prophet said: ‘He should help poor and needy persons.’ The Companions further asked ‘What if he cannot do even that?’ The Prophet said ‘He should urge others to do good.’ The Companions said ‘What if he lacks that also?’ The Prophet said ‘He should check himself from doing evil. That is also charity.’

Geneva meeting on Syria without Iran

According to the diplomat, Iran is a powerful player in the region and should be taken into account when seeking a solution of the Syrian conflict. Syrian conflict is too complicated situation and there are many factors that have role in Syria. Iran is one of most important country that has strong and deep relation with Syria and during the three decades they have strategic alliance. The Syria-Iran alliance has survived in part because it has been primarily defensive in nature. For three decades, it has been aimed largely at neutralizing Iraqi and Israeli capabilities and preventing American encroachment in the Middle East. Defensive alliances which have fixed and limited objectives are often more durable. The balance of power in the Syrian-Iranian alliance has shifted since 1979. » Read more
