Editorials

Dhu al-Qa'dah 29, 1437

Editorials

News & Analysis

Tahir Mahmoud

Dhu al-Qa'dah 29, 1437

News & Analysis

India’s occupation forces—most of them adherents of a racist Hindu ideology akin to Nazism—are continuing the killing and maiming of Kashmiri youth. The people of Kashmir have had enough; they want India to get out of Kashmir!

Zia Sarhadi

Dhu al-Qa'dah 29, 1437

Umar Shahid

Dhu al-Qa'dah 29, 1437

News & Analysis

The Western corporate media are masters of disinformation. Their ideology is well known: everything Western is superior and others’ culture, philosophy, ideology especially those of Muslims, are inferior. Their particular target is Islamic Iran because it stands for clear Islamic principles.

Special Reports

Dmitry Shlapentokh

Dhu al-Qa'dah 29, 1437

Russian-Iranian relations form the backdrop of this review in which Western writers are found to lack understanding of other societies because they have little knowledge of local languages, culture or access to primary sources. Dmitry Shlapentokh, associate professor at Indiana State University, South Bend, Indiana, reviews Russia-Iran Relations Since the End of the Cold War by Eric D. Moore (Routledge, 2014; 242 pp., $8.84 hbk).
