ISIS, An Important Wake-up Call about Arab World’s Problems and Deficiencies: Interview with Rami G. Khouri

ISIS, An Important Wake-up Call about Arab World’s Problems and Deficiencies: Interview with Rami G. Khouri

Kourosh Ziabari - Iran Review: The Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) is referred to as the richest terrorist organization in the world. In 2015, it earned $2.4 billion through oil exports and illegal taxation and extortion from the desperate people living under its harrowing rule. Defeating the ISIS terrorists militarily appears to be a daunting task, and people hesitate to call the annihilation of ISIS an easily-reachable and plausible target, at least for the time being when the international community is divided on whom to support and whom to fight in Syria, and the influential actors pursue apparently conflicting interests. The latest estimates by the U.S. intelligence community put the number of ISIS recruits at 25,000,...

Who benefits from the protraction of war in Syria?

Who benefits from the protraction of war in Syria?

Kourosh Ziabari -  It all started on March 15, 2011, when groups of the Syrian people took to the streets of Damascus to protest what they considered to be the government’s unfavorable social and economic policies. The Western powers tried to portray the scattered demonstrations as a continuation of the revolutionary wave in the Arab states of the Middle East and North Africa known as the Arab Spring. However, there was a major difference, that Syria was simply dissimilar to all the other countries where the people had taken to streets to demand a regime change: Syria was not a U.S. puppet regime! Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain and Yemen where the core of the “Arab Spring” had taken shape and come to existence were all countries...

West and Arab States Are More Harmful to Syria than Al-Qaeda

West and Arab States Are More Harmful to Syria than Al-Qaeda

  Kourosh Ziabari - American author and military expert believes that the Western states and their Persian Gulf allies have done more harm to Syria in the recent months than Al-Qaeda and Taliban. According to Jim W. Dean, the United States, UK, France and the Arab states of the Persian Gulf that have engaged in a long-fought war against Syria have a variety of motives for trying to dismantle and bring down the government of President Bashar al-Assad. “As for a motive, the West wants to cut off arms supply routes through Syria to Hezbollah and to be able to stage bases in Northern Syrian for offense against Iran both with planes and missiles. That is the military reason. They also want to block Iran’s long term pipeline...

It’s certain that 9/11 was a false flag operation

Kourosh Ziabari - Mark Dankof is a prolific American author, Christian pastor, radio host and political commentator. He has been interviewed by Press TV and Russia Today as an expert on international developments. His articles have appeared on Veterans Today, and he runs a weekly program on Mark Glenn's the Ugly Truth radio show. Almost two weeks have passed since the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and scholars, journalists and authors are still trying to figure out the hidden realities behind the "most hideous terrorist attacks ever perpetrated in American soil," as described by Victor Argothy of the University of Delware's Disaster Research Center. Israel's involvement in the 9/11 attacks and the possibility that it might...

Mossad played a crucial role in 9/11 attacks

Mossad played a crucial role in 9/11 attacks

  Kourosh Ziabari - More than one decade after the 9/11 attacks which completely diverted the path of the U.S. foreign policy and led to the waging of two lethal, erosive wars on Afghanistan and Iraq and killing of thousands of innocent civilians, an influential, diligent group of researchers and authors have dared to question the authenticity and veracity of the claims made by the U.S. government that they were Islamist terrorists who crashed hijacked planes into the World Trade Center towers and Pentagon and killed some 3,000 people. One of these high-ranking, renowned researchers is Dr. James H. Fetzer, a retired professor of philosophy at the University of Minnesota Duluth. He has written on the philosophy of science and on the...

Media war against Syria is part of a Zionist conspiracy

Media war against Syria is part of a Zionist conspiracy

  Kourosh Ziabari - Syrian writer and painter Anan Tello believes that that the media war against Syria had started long ago, even before the U.S. occupation of Iraq in 2003, and that different entities, including Israel are involved in this intensive propaganda campaign against the Syrian people and government. “The only solution which will put an end to violence in Syria is an international one. Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon must keep their borders under control. Regimes supporting armed groups in Syria must stop smuggling weaponry and explosives into Syria, quit funding the armed groups and stop sheltering terrorist groups,” she said in an interview with Tehran Times on Tuesday. Anan Tello is a Syrian writer, blogger and...

Iran breaking free from its imperial chains

Iran breaking free from its imperial chains

  Kourosh Ziabari - "Iran has a long rich history dating back to ancient Greece and Rome, and its culture predates the rise of Islam in the seventh century. Reclaiming its dignity and patrimony in the 1979 revolution, it is logical that Iran would be the first country in the Middle East to break free from its imperial chains given its vast reservoir of history and knowledge from which to draw on in getting back on its feet," said Dr. Colin S. Cavell during an exclusive interview with Tehran Times. Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Dr. Cavell is an American author who earned his Doctorate of Philosophy degree in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Dr. Cavell is currently Assistant Professor...

Al-Qaeda is officially working with NATO in Syria

Al-Qaeda is officially working with NATO in Syria

  Kourosh Ziabari - Prominent French journalist Thierry Meyssan believes that Al-Qaeda is overtly cooperating with NATO in order to foment and stoke unrest in Syria, and that Israel, France, Qatar and the United States are benefiting from the continued instability in the crisis-hit country. "At the beginning , people from Al-Qaeda committed horrible crimes like what they did in Libya and Iraq and now they are carrying out suicide attacks. According to Council on Foreign Relations, that is, according to the U.S. itself, Al-Qaeda is now a main part of the Free Syrian Army," Thierry Meyssan said in an exclusive phone interview with Tehran Times conducted earlier this month. Thierry Meyssan is a French journalist and political...
