Personal POV vis-a-vis Iranian political turmoil

17 06 2009

Personally, I am on the side of re-elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of the Islamic Republic of Iran (whatever the final outcome of troubled events in Iran as they unfold day by day). If I were in President Ahmadinejad’s shoes right now, I would again fly out to Saudi Arabia (having returned from  an official visit to Russia most recently) to pay a courtesy call on King Abdullah in Riyadh. After a ‘four-eyes’ meeting with the Saudi King, I would then perform the small Haj or Umrah in Medinah and Mekah to seek help up close and personal from Allah Subhannahu Wataala.

While being away on such a spiritual sojourn, hopefully things will sort out themselves back home in Iran, Insya Allah (God Willing)… BUT I am not in the Iranian President’s shoes (hehehheh!)  :D :P😉 :) 

Anyways, below is an extract of a wise advice from a fellow Muslim’s blog www.anwar-alawlaki.com:

12. Defending the mujahideen and standing up for them
The Messenger of Allah (saaws) says: “Whoever protects the reputation of his brother, Allah will protect his face from Hell Fire on the Day of Judgment” (Related by al Tirmithi)
He also says: “Any person who betrays a Muslim whose sanctity is being violated and reputation is being dishonored, Allah will betray him when he is in need of help and any person who protects a Muslim whose sanctity is being violated and reputation is being dishonored, Allah will assist him when he is in need of help” (Related by Abu Dawud)
It is therefore our Islamic duty to stand up for the ones who are defending us and our religion. As a rule of thumb, we should never side by word or deed against our brothers in Islam especially the ones who have given up their lives for Islam and we should never side by word or deed with the disbelievers who are the enemies of our most beloved, Allah subhanahu wa ta’aala.
And if one cannot speak the truth then at least they should remain silent.

13. Fighting the lies of the Western Media
The perceptions of many Muslims are formed by the Western media. Allah says: “O you who have believed, if there comes to you a disobedient one (fasiq) with information, investigate, lest you harm a people out of ignorance and become, over what you have done, regretful” (49:6)
So what about when the news is coming from a kafir rather than a fasiq?!
The danger of the Western media stems from the fact that it puts on the cloak of truth and objectivity when in reality it is no more than the mouthpiece of the devil. Can’t you see that the Western media is constantly trying to underplay the atrocities committed by the West while exaggerating the violations – which are few and far in between – committed by Muslims? Can’t you see how the Western media succeeded in presenting the awlyaa’ (friends) of Allah, the ones who are fighting in His cause, as the followers of evil, while it presents the Pharaoh of this day and his armies as the army of good? The Western media is so good in its deception that its lies pass on a wide section of the Muslim ummah.
The fact is that this media demonizes the mujahideen, spreads lies about them, blows out of proportion their mistakes, tries to sow the seeds of disunity amongst them, attempts to ruin the reputations of their leaders, and ignores or demonizes the scholars of truth when on the other hand, it glorifies and promotes the scholars of falsehood.
So my dear brothers and sisters part of your duty is to campaign amongst Muslims to raise their awareness regarding this issue. You should encourage them to be careful and critical of the Western media. A Muslim should not believe Western sources unless they are confirmed by a trustworthy Muslim one. I say a “trustworthy” Muslim source because the verse was warning us from accepting the news of a disobeying Muslim. Now that is not to say that we should not believe the media in anything it says even in its weather forecasts! No, what we are saying is that you should not believe what they say about Islam and Muslims. A media source that could otherwise be very objective and truthful could become a fabricator when it comes to covering news on Muslims. That is how the disbelievers dealt with Muslims since the dawn of history…and there is no reason for us to believe why that would change.

14. Exposing the hypocrites
The hypocrites represented a great danger to the Muslim community during the time of the Prophet, and they still do. The Messenger of Allah would fight them by exposing their lies. If the battle with the kuffar was primarily a battle of swords, the battle against the hypocrites was primarily a battle of words. Since the hypocrites hide behind the cloak of religion to spread their poisonous ideas, the way to fight them is by revealing the truth and exposing their lies. Your weapon against them is Quran and Sunnah.

Some of these hypocrites could be very charismatic. They could appear to be very impressive, but they are fake. Allah says: “And when you see them, their forms please you, and if they speak, you listen to their speech. They are as if they were pieces of wood propped up – they think that every shout is against them. They are the enemy, so beware of them. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded?” (63:4)
The fake scholars and deviant ideologies need to be exposed for what they are.

PLOT TO DESTABILISE IRAN

Mir-Hossein Mousavi is alleged to be a friend of Manuchehr Ghorbanifar (Iranian arms merchant, alleged MOSSAD double agent, and key figure in the Iran/Contra Affair)

My point of view (POV) on this ongoing fiasco in Iran is that more and more outrageous and ridiculous bloggers from outside of the Islamic Republic are getting overly excited at the prospect of re-elected President Ahmadinejad to be overthrown in no time at all! (Browse into the Internet’s ‘No. 1 Blog’ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/18/twitter-shows-us-has-take_n_217453.html)

I say to ’em all: “No way, Jose!” Just because the more than 60 percent of Iranians who have voted for their incumbent President back into office again a couple of weeks ago aren’t as IT-savvy as the 30 percent of voters for the loser, Mir Hossein Moussavi, to be loud and vocal in their Facebook and Twitter realms shouldn’t be the yardstick for democracy by western standards! C’mon pro-Moussavi bloggers, 60 percent as opposed to your 30 percent is a helluva lot of difference in democratic terms by a long shot!

And yet you only wanna blow your trumpets and brag all over the Net that you represent the true Facebook and Tweet of democracy?😛 My foot!😦

You all claim that the recently-concluded Iranian Presidential Elections had been rigged! H_E_L_L_O! What a load of B***S###! Grrr

You can rant all you want, ‘self-declared pro-democracy’ bloggers, the fact remains that the majority of Iranians stood behind their Man of the Hour, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad! So to hell with the “Green Uprising”!
(Although I am in favor of the “Green movement’s’ nightly shouts of ALLAHU AKBAR from their rooftops at the top of their voices!)🙂

Stop your violent rhetorics and street protests and so-called ‘democratic reform’ demonstrations against the real establishment of democracy in Iran!

Hey Mr. PLK, nice take on this.😀 And wow, an Israeli propaganda campaign against Iran?

It’s good that there are people like you to share less mainstream things like this with others. So, one question remains, do you have a Twitter account? If you don’t, I think it would be a great idea if you set up one. :p

Thank you, Bro Zimin!🙂 About the Jewish propaganda thingy bit, I believe it’s only too obvious since Israel is scared shit that Iran (under Ahmadinejad’s presidency) may go ahead with their nuclear energy program.

Almaklumlah brader Zimin, yahudi andang dari sejarah dahulu kala mana mau kalah, bisdia saja tah yang banar. Kitani bepigang saja sabda Rasullulah Sallalllahu Alaihi Wassalam yakni dalam satu hadis para sahabat bertanya: “Ya Rasullullah, pada satu masa Islam akan diserang bertubi-tubi oleh kafir yahudi jadi siapakah yang akan mempertahankan Islam?”

Sebelum menjawab pertanyaan tersebut, Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalam menoleh ke kiri dan kanan dan terus meletakkan tapak tangannya di atas peha sahabat yang duduk disebelah Baginda lalu bersabda: “Kaum Farsi dari golongan penglima gagah Islam, Salman Al-Farisi, di sisi saya ini.”😉

With regard to Twitter account, I’m still ICT-illiterate and ignorant, bro Zimin. I dunno if I have the time to update or not ‘cos even my Facebook I’ve yet to set up. For now, I’m simply happy ‘releasing tension’ on this blog of mine. Actually, I’m quite impressed with your blog coming from a young bloke like you, Zimin. I think you should take up political science if you are not into engineering or medicine or even law for your further studies. If not, a degree in International Relations would be good for you as well. Good Luck, bro Zimin and keep up your positive young fighting spirit, dude!🙂

p.s. I quite like your quote for Choke on Sunshine: “Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway. -Anonymous” Great One!😛

You’re welcome! Wowww, thanks again for sharing🙂 I hope I’m not getting it wrong: Kaum Farsi = Persians, and New Persia = Iran, right?

I have read quite a bit (though not enough) about how and why Israelis and Palestinians (as well as Iranians) will never get along with each other. Do you think that the twin-state solution between Israel and Palestine can ever be achieved?

Besides that, I’m also interested in your opinion about whether Iran is harnessing (or will start harnessing) nuclear energy for nuclear weapons.

Oh, no worries about being ICT-illiterate; I think that people like you (who likes to share and spread information) would find Twitter easier to understand (than most others would) and use effectively. After all, Twitter’s all about sharing.😀 Plus, just maybe, you’ll find yourself addicted to it soon enough, like many other Bruneians already are. :p Think of it as ‘releasing mini-tension’, or posting thoughts that you wouldn’t blog about because it’s too short.

Regarding my blog, thanks!😀 I would be glad to take political science, but I’ve made up my mind to take up the subject economics, which isn’t so distant from political science.🙂 Plus, I think I’ll be able to solve more problems in Brunei by taking up economics, but that’s for much later hehe. Oh, and about that quote, I think it would sound a lot more ‘suitable’ if I put it as “Never take life TOO seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.”. :p

Again, thank you and good luck to you too big bro! Keep up your positive young fighting spirit as well!🙂

P.S. Now I have a stronger motivation to re-continue blogging, so thanks! :p

Yeah, good on you, mate!🙂 To major in Economics for your first degree isn’t a bad choice, really BUT be sure to achieve 1st Class Honours, bro Zimin.😉

I know a couple of girls who’re 3rd Class Economics graduates from University Brunei Darussalam who seemed to have been side-stepped always by Public Service Commission (SPA) Panel of Interviewers for governmental positions. So now they have to make do with below 1k basic salary working for the Private Sector since they left UBD more than a year ago…😦 And they’re not keen on teaching positions, either.

Current job market trend in Brunei Darussalam points out that Institiut Teknologi Brunei (ITB) grads get much faster job offers than UBD grads.

Good luck on your ‘A’ Level exams (if you haven’t sat for it yet). I have full confidence that you’ll sail through it easily with flying colours, young man!

Ohh I’ll try as hard as I possibly can and insyaAllah I will get 1st class🙂

My cousin might be one of the girls you mentioned, though I’m not sure if she got 3rd class, or 2nd lower, but I’ve heard not-so-good news about her from my parents. Well, I hope I won’t end in that sort of situation, but I WOULD become a teacher. :p

Really? That’s interesting. I’ll keep that in mind!😀

Oh I had my A-Levels last year, but thank you bro!🙂

Okay then, looking forward to more of your posts!
