Iran as a guarantor of stability in the Middle East

87



All the events taking place in the Middle East, whether it is a conflict in Syria or the “resource wars” of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, are in one way or another connected with the Islamic Republic of Iran. The forces of evil seek to weaken Iran, or even destroy it altogether. And friends ... And Iran has very few friends in the Middle East. And they, too, now is not easy.

The reason for the events in this case lies in the fact that the current Iran "like a bone in the throat" is among the main geopolitical players. The fact is that for the American elite, Iran is an obstacle to their “Greater Middle East” plan to radicalize the region. For Qatar and Saudi Arabia, Iran is primarily an ideological and economic competitor. This, in turn, is again skillfully used by the upper elite of the American elite, which consists mainly of Zionist Jews. After an obvious failure in Syria, they obviously made a bet on fomenting a war between Arabs and Persians. And the goal of everything that happens here is only one - to blow up the Middle East. And Iran is on its way to achieving it - the last obstacle.

In fact, Iran in the Middle East is now acting as a deterrent. Iran’s leadership is tough on drug trafficking and terrorism. Accordingly, the transit route for drug couriers and terrorists is almost completely closed through Iranian territory. It should take into account the fact that Iran is located just between Iraq and Afghanistan with Pakistan. That is, countries internally unstable.

A special place is occupied by the main religion in Iran - Islam of the Shiite trend. Generally, Shiism and Sunni is for Muslims, approximately, like Orthodoxy and Catholicism for Christians several centuries ago. Shiites are fairly moderate Muslims. While the Sunnis, and especially the individual sects of this Islam, such as the Salafis and Wahhabis, are the real radicals. All Muslim terrorists are just representatives of the radical Sunni sects. Among Shiites, this kind of activity is not at all welcome. There is, of course, the Mahdi Army in Iraq created and led by Muktada al-Sadr and a number of smaller Shiite armed groups. But this is a very strong exception for the Shiite world, rather than the rule.

Proceeding from all this, it is worth bringing, first of all, to the western audience, the idea that all the aggression now coming from London, Washington, Tel Aviv, Riyadh and Doha is against the stability of Iran in the whole region The Middle East, coupled with the endless stupidity of Arab sheiks, firmly seated on the hook of the USA, with their desire to "remove the competitor"; and not the fight against Iran’s mythical "nuclear program" and other invented "pugalkami." Yes, and so beloved by the West about the "struggle for democracy" in the case of Iran, too, will not work. The fact is that there is more democracy in Iran than in the “den of world democracy” - the United States of America. About Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which in terms of civil rights and freedoms of the majority of the population can only compete with the medieval principalities, there is no reason to speak. I advise everyone to study the electoral system of Iran, where all citizens are vested with active suffrage in 16 years (There is only one in the world in Brazil), and the elections themselves are characterized by fierce competition. That is, no one goes to vote "for show" in Iran. In elections, the one who is worthy really wins. It is also worth noting the filter system for candidates for the President of Iran. She is also very interesting.

In my opinion, now Iran is an example for the entire Muslim world, how to develop properly. In the conditions of the most severe sanctions, Iran is now building cosmodromes and modernizing industry. While, for example, Arab sheikhs who have gone mad with an abundance of “petrodollars” build palaces and hotels with golden bowls for themselves, and also buy gilded airplanes. Therefore, the path of Iran is a path of development with preservation of traditions. The path of Saudi Arabia and Qatar - medieval obscurantism. Actually, who supports whom, he goes to that. The Syrian terrorists, who have taken sides with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, have been hammering the territories of Syria under their control into the Stone Age for several years now. I have flown to Syria several times this year and have seen with my own eyes what is happening there, where these various guardians of “pure Islam” have been. This is a real hell. At the same time, where secular Syrian power is preserved - everything is not even bad at all. But the problem is that the puppeteers of the Arab sponsors of these scumbags from Al Nusra, Al Qaeda, ISIS, etc. they want to turn the whole Middle East into hell. In no case should anything be allowed ...

    Whom they are trying to remove, only now they are afraid to get involved openly in an armed conflict, trying to act "by someone else's hands." Fortunately, they have plenty of money, and there are plenty of "adventurers" in the Middle East. That's just "sow the wind - reap the storm." Sooner or later, but this "wave" will return and how Qatar and the SA will get out is not clear, since they are not so hot as soldiers ...

      Removing Iran, for the SA, is like removing a load from the opposite pan of the beam balance - the system in equilibrium will collapse. "Cleaners" will face an unenviable fate. It's just some kind of progressive suicidal fixation among the Saudis.

        This is the same as Nazi Germany a guarantor of stability in Europe in 1939

        The war in Syria continues thanks to Iran and Russia - guarantors of the stability of the bloody massacre.

      I think that if negotiations on the Iranian nuclear issue continue to proceed so fruitfully and Iran succeeds in agreeing on the abolition or significant relaxation of sanctions, then this means that the United States has decided to put an end to the Saudis by buying oil from Iran, thereby trying to create a shortage of oil from its main competitor in China's Asia-Pacific region. China, perhaps possessing some information, concludes long-term contracts with Russia for the supply of oil and gas, paying with American securities, thereby trying to reach an agreement with Russia and get rid of the rapidly discrediting American currency at least a little. Russia takes money for long-term oil contracts from China. buys technology and squeezes out foreign companies by buying their shares, for example TNK BP, returning the "paper" to their owners. The game continues.

        China immediately, without batting a slanting eye, will buy oil from the Saudis. And they will pay with the same green paper, which he has like wrappers of candy wrappers.

      The US has already dropped out of the ranks of countries trying to "break" Iran. Outright no. Lokomotiv Israel and Arabia will be indirectly happy (that is, with their tacit consent). So to speak, "the spearhead of the attack." And they themselves will not climb, after Syria received a heavy knockdown, collapsed their rating of "fighter for peace."

        Why would they tear something? Economic sanctions are slowly doing their job.
        The United States is doing everything to get away from the consumption of Middle Eastern oil. And it should be noted that they are doing everything right and this gives them a field for maneuver.

      I will express my opinion as an alternative to the opinion of the majority. I understand that the friction of the Iranians with the West creates a halo of David for them, opposing Goliath, the principle is the enemy of my enemy, my friend, although in real politics this is far from a fact. Today Iran and the West do not get along, but where are the guarantees that with the observed warming of relations between them tomorrow they will not be the best friends, as they were in the recent past. I agree that the levels of democracy in Iran and in S. Arabia and Qatar are incompatible. The Arabs generally have a medieval order. But presenting Iran as a model of democracy is also not worth it, which is worth a filter from the "Council of Guardians" - theologians who decide the degree of "adherence" of candidates to Sharia norms. They can overwhelm any candidate disagreeable to the authorities, even without explaining the reasons. Further, the author's assertions about "Iranians building spaceports and sheikhs with golden toilets" generally do not hold water. GDP per capita in the monarchies of the Gulf exceeds $ 100, and Iran's is in the region of $ 000. The indigenous population of the monarchies can afford not to work at all, education at home, at least in the best universities in the world is free, at the expense of the state. Medical care in the best clinics in the world is also free. In addition, citizens of these countries, already at birth, automatically become owners of a tidy sum in the form of a state grant-deposit. Can Iran boast such a standard of living for its citizens? Of course not. Inflation, to put it mildly, does not fall below double digits, an ineffective economy, unemployment, the quality of Iranian goods is no better than the cheapest Chinese consumer goods. The map attached to the article shows which Iran is a multinational state. And at the same time a barbaric domestic policy is being pursued. There are no schools in the country in the languages ​​of national minorities. Although these "minorities" make up at least 15000% of the population ... Any activities aimed at developing the culture of the non-Persian population are prohibited. Iran has managed to spoil relations with almost all of its neighbors. He also blocks any attempts to move the "stuck" agreements on the Caspian Sea off the ground. I repeat, dislike for the West should not prevent the real, not through stereotypes, perception of Iran as a state.

          Dear Sergei, we are not afraid of a cold snap in relations with Iran. They have never been warm and have never been. We know about the state of affairs in Iran not from articles, but actually from first hand. There are few families who have not been there. And many come from there. They ask to pay for services in dollars or euros. By the way, they do not disdain our manats. And your comment that "the states that were very rich, respectively, had a swollen brain among the rulers," to be honest, I did not understand .. The rulers with "swollen brains" do not live happily ever after ... And as I understand it, you are against development of culture among ethnic minorities. Then is it any wonder that just those states where they do not care about their citizens usually end up badly .. Only during the 20th century Iran has gone through several revolutions and it is restless there all the time. And all to write off on " the intrigues of enemies "somehow does not work.

            I am not against the culture of national minorities. The problem with Iran is that there is no clearly predominant (large) nation. Everyone needs to be united under some common goals, ideas, and if each tribe has its own presidents, then there will be no state. I think there they know better what national policy to lead, whom to oppress, who not.

              In my opinion, I answered your questions. If you mean the presence of schools in the languages ​​of national minorities, then I’ll give a note - Sunday schools are organized in areas of compact residence of national minorities, if there is an appeal from the population. In addition, the population is free to enroll children in the Azerbaijani and Russian sectors. press and electronic media broadcasts in the languages ​​of small nations. So there’s no discrimination, and we don’t have such a question at all, because there are about 91% of Azerbaijanis among Azerbaijanis. In Russia, in my opinion, there are no schools in the languages ​​of national minorities, but like ours, you can open Sunday schools. But in Iran, it’s even hard to imagine such a thing.

            Dear Sergey, we are not afraid of a cooling of relations with Iran. They have never been warm and have never been.

            I read it, first from our newspapers, then from your press

            On November 8, the Iranian side closed all border points on the border with Azerbaijan. The reasons for this are unknown. According to a Turan regional correspondent, on November 6, an incident occurred on the Iranian border in Nakhchivan: fire was fired on the Iranian side by a working tractor on the Azerbaijani side of the Araz River.

            Azerbaijan sent a request about the reason for the shelling, after which the checkpoints were closed. There is still no response to the request.

            Currently, a large number of Azerbaijani citizens are waiting at several checkpoints on the border of permission to travel to Iran.

            The Azerbaijani side cannot give an answer to the question of when will the border be opened.

            Official Baku has not yet commented on the closure of the border; in an informal conversation, a customs official admitted that Iran closed the border without giving reasons.
            And what is the problem, what happened?

After that he released his wings, took to the air and flew away.

        The concept of "democracy" is a psycho-virus embedded in the minds of people, designed to destroy the states - competitors of the United States. The closer a country is to the ideals of democracy, the weaker and more dependent it is on the United States. Up to the point that the power in it changes at the snap of fingers from the State Department. This time.

Apparently we should feel a powerful sympathy for the unfortunate Iranians, deprived of the benefits of tolerance, and be outraged that they did not let the faith of their fathers crush, but rather live strictly according to its precepts? Indeed, what a horror ...
        And yes, we are shocked by their economic situation. The Saudis bloom and smell like flies on dung, and the Iranians are poor. No, we expected that they, whom the West strangles with both hands, are rich ... and they are poor! Awful They need to surrender immediately, and then they can not work, but only guest workers as slaves to keep as much as they want ...
        And what a scandalous Iran! When the Iranians try to come to an agreement with someone, the negotiators in the other ear begin to yell and scream the United States and Israel modestly. And there’s no way to agree! What Iranians are unfriendly, ay yay yay ... And the Albanian script does not roll with them. Well, finally ...
        At times, a clearly pro-American Azerbaijan should be concerned with (and of course concerns), ready to plunge a knife into our backs. And to us and, here is a surprise, to Iran! And we will definitely take measures to ensure that this knife does no harm to us and not to our partner, and apparently in the near future a declared ally.

        hi Sergey! Yes, there is no prospect there. The problem of Iran is that Iran is trying to export its revolution to all Muslim countries. But no one wants it. Iran has almost all its neighbors in strained relations.
        and Iranian citizens themselves are not happy with their regime. When talking with many
        they always say that when the shah they lived much better than they do now. and those Iranians who come to us in Baku immediately change clothes, and the men just muffle vodka from morning till night))) if they drink in Iran they will get 80 hits in the back , and with repeated detention they will hang on a truck crane.

              Who do you believe more, Swiss or Russian experts?
              Russian experts did not confirm the poisoning of Y. Arafat with polonium-210.

              08.11.2013/16/51, Ramallah 54:210:XNUMX Russian experts who have examined the remains of the leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Yasser Arafat did not confirm the version of his poisoning with radioactive polonium-XNUMX. According to the results of the analysis, "it was not possible to come to an unambiguous conclusion about the presence of a radiation background in the samples presented," says the expert opinion of the A.I.Burnazyan Federal Medical Biophysical Center of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency of Russia.

              An electronic copy of the document prepared by Russian experts is published on the website of the Qatari television company Al Jazeera. Palestinian authorities have confirmed that Russian experts have come to precisely this conclusion. Quoting the Russian report, Dr. Abdullah Bashir, one of the members of the Palestinian commission of inquiry, pointed out the lack of sufficient grounds to assert that the ingress of polonium into the body of Y. Arafat could lead to his death.

              A Russian expert report published by Al Jazeera states that only one of the four fragments presented (bone of the skull) had a radioactive background, which, with a low degree of probability, could indicate the presence of a certain amount of polonium-210 inside the body.

              According to Al Jazeera's source, who transmitted a copy of the report to the TV company, "the laboratory staff received clear instructions from the Russian Foreign Ministry on how the final report should look."

              The conclusion of Russian experts casts doubt on the hypothesis of poisoning of Y. Arafat with radioactive polonium.

And just do not argue that this is supposedly the work of a third party. Neither the West, nor the Arabs, nor the Turks, nor the Chinese are so concerned about this issue as to arrange the killing of Iranian scientists.

        Professor, but of course, it is beneficial for you to expose Iran as a backward medieval state, with enviable constancy, publishing these photos, and attributing them to Iran, already wrote to you, but
        so I’ve already written to you, I’m writing again, I’ve dug on the Internet for your sake,
        On December 5, 2012, Muslims around the world celebrated Ashur Day - the 10th day of the month of Muharram. On this day, according to the Qur'an, the creation of Heaven, Earth, angels, the first man - Adam falls.

        A doomsday (apocalypse, doomsday) will also come on the day of Ashura. On the day of Ashur, Muslims say, Adam was resettled in Paradise and received repentance from him after the fall.

        For Shiites (adherents of Shiism - a trend in Islam) this day is a day of mourning
        Initially, in accordance with general Muslim traditions, Shiites also celebrated the onset of the Muslim New Year - the month of Muharram and its 10th day - Ashur as a “great and blessed” day. But since al-Hussein, the youngest son of Ali ibn Abu Talib and the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, was killed on that day on October 10, 680 on the Gregorian calendar, the first ten days of the month have been dedicated to mourning the martyrdom of Hussein. Hussein died fighting the army of Caliph Yazid. He knew the hopelessness of his struggle, but he accepted martyrdom for the salvation of Islam. Therefore, during the ceremony of mourning Hussein, Shiites encouraged self-torture.
        The participants in the processions scourge themselves, exclaiming: “Shah Hussein, wah, Hussein!”, Inflicting wounds on themselves with sabers, daggers. According to legend, Hussein suffered 33 stabbed and 34 chopped wounds. On the photo: December 5, 2011. Shiit walks on hot coals in Yangon.
        Hussein's memorial day is celebrated in Iran, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and partially in Tajikistan and Pakistan, as well as in other countries where there are Shiite Muslim communities.
        The tradition of Shia self-torture with chains and knives to bleeding wounds developed in the Middle Ages.
        So carefully looking at the photo, I saw a funeral ceremony in Istanbul (Turkey), in Lebanon.
        And here is the self-torture of Shiite Muslims in Baghdad (Iraq), in Kabul Afghanistan and Pakistan.
        And there is no Iran there.

        as you can see, the Iranians live in the Islamic Republic, their laws are based on the Koran, follow the Sharia law. And as we see from the photographs, everything that is provided has nothing to do with Islam or the Sharia, and especially the Koran. In all religions, including Islam, it is strictly forbidden to injure oneself.

        in Iran, Islam and the Koran are remembered only when it is beneficial to those in power. In general, to be honest, all over the world in those countries where the name of the country has an Islamic republic, no real Islamic values ​​are observed.
        this has a very simple explanation. The state and religion have different concepts. when religion begins to interfere in state affairs, it turns out that obscurantism.

      And also about the attitude towards the Jews in Iran itself
      The official policy of the Iranian authorities towards Jews is based on the principle: tolerance towards Jews, intolerance towards Zionism (the latter refers to the justification for the existence of the state of Israel), which is completely identical to the policy of the USSR during the time of “stagnation”
      For this reason, amazing collisions are taking place in politics: for example, in 2007, when President Ahmadinejad made harsh statements against Israel and questioned the extent of the Holocaust, the television series “Turning Zero Degrees” funded by the Iranian government and was very successful on Iranian television tells the story of how an Iranian during the years of the Nazi occupation of France helped save his beloved family - a French Jewess - and a number of other Jews.
      The Jewish community in the Mejlis is represented by 1 deputy (in 2000 and 2004, Maurice Motamed was elected to this position). Iranian Jews emigrate freely to various countries, with the exception of the United States and Israel, where they can only get through third countries (however, the same Motamed almost the whole family has already moved to the United States).
      On February 8, 2003, Iranian President Mohammad Khatami visited the Yussef Abad Synagogue.
      Former Israeli President Moshe Katsav came from Iranian Jews.

        That is why there were several espionage show trials, when the Jewish origin of the accused was especially prominent, and my acquaintances, Persian Jews, who got out of there at the end of the 90x - the beginning of the 2000's, would have laughed at it well.

    Iran is "hanging" over almost all the countries of the east. Give him nuclear weapons and he will really become a regional superpower of which they are so afraid, especially Israel. not the fact that the Iranian leadership will apply it, but the very fact of possession of nuclear weapons will cool the ardor of all "progressive" humanity.

    For Qatar and Saudi Arabia, Iran is primarily an ideological and economic competitor.

    Whom they are trying to remove, only now they are afraid to get involved openly in an armed conflict, trying to act "by someone else's hands." Fortunately, they have plenty of money, and there are plenty of "adventurers" in the Middle East. That's just "sow the wind - reap the storm." Sooner or later, but this "wave" will return and how Qatar and the SA will get out is not clear, since they are not so hot as soldiers ...


    And most importantly, they do not learn anything, al-Qaeda has been fed, and now it has decided that the Saudi regime is not sufficiently Sharia, now the Saudis are forced to drive these Sharia people in their own backyard.

    Bullshit, which was denied on August 11, 2013. President Putin:
    ,, ... I spoke about this with my Iranian friends - we must not forget that Iran is located in a very complex region. And when we hear from Iran threats against neighboring countries, in particular Israel, when we hear from Iran that "Israel can be destroyed" - I believe that this is absolutely unacceptable "...

    By the way, doesn’t Ershov know that Argentina issued arrest warrants for senior Iranian terrorists who blew up the building of a Jewish organization, where more than 100 people died? The current Minister of Armed Forces of Iran, who has no opportunity to leave Iran, led the attack. will be arrested.

    Iran poses a threat not only to the countries of the Middle East, but also to Russia:

    ,, In the Iranian port of Anzeli, the naval forces of this country were transferred the latest missile destroyer of their own production.
    Iranian President: The destroyer serves as a warning to those who want to jeopardize the security of neighboring nations.

    Even a cursory glance at the combat capabilities of all the Caspian littoral states leaves no doubt: Iran’s Jamaran-2 missiles have no other worthy targets other than ships .... of the Russian Caspian flotilla.
    However, in Astrakhan and Makhachkala, where our sailors are based, they are also clearly preparing for something. It is announced that by 2020, the Caspian Flotilla will receive an additional 16 warships.

    But here is another important circumstance: not one of our four fleets with strategic access to the oceans has been promised such a large replenishment.
    Little of. Some aviation units will soon be transferred from the operational-strategic command "South" to the Caspians.
    But the most important thing is that the Bastion coastal missile systems have already been deployed on the coast, capable of destroying surface targets with supersonic Yakhont cruise missiles .... ,,

    I do not agree with the assessment of the author. The threat emanating from Iran is no less than that from Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Strengthening Iran in the region will have negative consequences for Russia. Until Iran deals with the Saudis, its hands will be tied. And then?
    I consider Israel to be Russia's natural ally in the fight against terrorists. There, half the population speaks Russian and, unlike the Iranians, treats Russia well. I hope that if Iran is close to creating nuclear weapons, Israel will not be shy and will unilaterally bomb its military nuclear facilities.

      Unfortunately, their short-sighted US policy pushes Iran with Israel .... yes, and Russia leaves a window for Israel, refusing to supply S-300 to Iran ....
      The threats of creating nuclear weapons by Iran and the threats against Saudis and Israel made Saudi Arabia and Israel come closer together - they have a common enemy, Iran ... Saudis are reportedly ready to give Israel its airspace ...

      ,, ..... Constant threats against Israel made the likelihood of a war with Israel increasingly real.
      The problem is that Israel has a much greater ability to attack Iran than Iran can defend itself.
      Israel can set up more than 500 aircraft (mainly F-15 and F-16) per day (several flights per day) against Iran.
      Within a few days, the Israeli air force is capable of destroying the little that Iran has as its main weapon systems (armored vehicles, aircraft, warships, weapons and scientific and production facilities).
      The Iranian Air Force is largely a window dress.
      Currently, Iran has about two hundred fighters and fighter-bombers, but only half of them can be put into action, and usually only one sortie per day.
      Iran is also poorly prepared when it comes to ground-based air defense ,,.

    Telephone conversation with King of Saudi Arabia Abdullah Ben Abdel Aziz Al Saud.
    Russia also fears quick changes in the new US policy towards Iran. The price of oil with the lifting of the embargo will fall; Saudi Arabia is doing everything possible to disrupt the Geneva peace conference and keep prices high. Saudi Arabia is the only one in OPEC who does not really increase production, thereby keeping prices at a time when production costs are the lowest. Russia at first glance is not interested in strengthening Iran, but this is not so. The horses at the crossing do not change, and stability, if our neighbor is strengthened, with a wise approach, will strengthen our positions and give new economic opportunities.
