Can Russia (Or Iran) Survive Without China?

What's that old saying about rodeos and cowboys?
I would also add something Jeff did not address: Iran. I believe that both Russia and China also very much need Iran. Okay, that is not a vital need, both Russia and China could survive without an allied Iran, but Iran offers immense advantages to both countries, if only because thanks to the truly phenomenal stupidity of the Neocons the US’s breathtakingly stupid policies in the Middle-East (here is just the latest example) have turned Iran into a regional super-power eclipsing both Israel and the KSA. Furthermore, if Russia has shown much more political and moral courage than China (which, lets be honest, has been pretty happy to have Russia taking the brunt of the Empire’s attacks), Iran has shown much more political and moral courage than Russia, especially concerning the slow-motion genocide perpetrated by the Zionist Entity in Palestine.
… thanks to the truly phenomenal stupidity of the Neocons…
Unintended consequences… Got it.
…the US’s breathtakingly stupid policies in the Middle-East (here is just the latest example) have turned Iran into a regional super-power…
A long time ago in a place far from Kansas, a strange people who called themselves “Irooni” saved the Whore of Babylon from Babylon. With the aid of the Whore’s minions (merchants-moneylenders) the Irooni (Aryans/Iranians) established the Royal/Silk Road that for the first time connected Europe, Asia and Africa (and eventually inspired Spain’s El Camino Real and America’s Pony Express). Ever since, Iran (which is seated at the crossroads of the world) has both influenced and been influenced by every single culture it has come into contact with.
Iran’s motto is, “A stranger is a gift from God.”

… eclipsing both Israel and the KSA.
So a 300 year old nation, America, somehow managed to turn a 3,000 year old nation, Iran, into a regional super-power that’s shockingly more influential than two nations, Israel and Saudi Arabia, which are 70 and 87 years old respectively. What's the world come to?
David Frum Accuses Tucker Carlson of Dual Loyalties to the Moscow-Fox Axis of White Evil
Steve Sailer • November 25, 2019
As I mentioned yesterday, a lot of the current push for World War III is coming from media types who are getting themselves all worked up over their feelings that the World Is Already At War between the Moscow-Tehran-Fox News Axis of Evil and the Beltway-Jerusalem-Kiev Alliance of Niceness. For example, just now:
But really, if David could just come visit the Ethnic Foods aisle in my dad’s old Jon’s Supermarket in Valley Village, CA, he could see how all sorts of people who are some fraction of both sides in this conflict inside David’s head. Yet, they all seem to get along well enough. So we really don’t need to get into a tank war on the Eastern Front.
https://www.unz.com/isteve/david-frum-a ... s-of-evil/
And if David were to drive a few blocks up from that Jon’s he’d notice that a local Jewish children’s school is gated with armed guards. Then if David were to go to Tehran he’d see for himself that the Jewish schools and Synagogues there aren’t fortified like prisons. But David would most likely interpret that as a sign that Iranian Jews are being deprived of their right to defend themselves (against imaginary enemies). Even if Iranian Jews were to tell him that they feel safe in Iran he would assume they were being forced under duress to make such statements.
On a side note: No matter how bad things appear to be, they can always be worse. Can you imagine living in a world dominated by APM’s (Armenian Power Mongers)?
Thank G-d for small favors.
Iran’s ‘Only Crime Is We Decided Not to Fold’
Foreign Minister Zarif sketches Iran-US relations for diplomats, former presidents and analysts

Zarif, suffering from his memory lapses, failed to mention here that Persia received a $6 billion dollar–cash extortion payment–and the fact his government supports the mass murder and serial killing of soft targets. Persia is the #1 sponsor on the planet of targeted mass murder and serial killing of unarmed men, women, and children. Persian women were once treated as human beings and not goats, for a brief period several decades ago.
Whoa whoa whoa, Kemosabe!
Persia, eh? Purim much?
Pre 1979 “Persia” was terrorized by SAVAK (agents of MOSSAD-omites).
Post 1979 “Persia” has been terrorized by SAVAMA (agents of MOSSAD-omites).
Pre 1979 headscarves were completely optional (after the Shah put an end to his father’s ban).
Post 1979 Khomeini made them mandatory despite protests by even conservative observant Muslim women.
Pre 1979 the government took no official stance on homosexuality. It was not prosecuted or celebrated.
Post 1979 homosexuality and adultery became punishable by stoning and other barbaric ways. But homosexuals could avoid punishment if they agree to undergo sex change operations. Not only does the government encourage it, but it subsidizes it. Then it pimps them out with “temporary marriage” licenses.
List goes on and on…
But in spirit I agree. Persians shouldn’t be treated like goyim.
Is It Jaw-Jaw or War with Iran?

The US has already been at war with Iran for many years. Unlike the Hot and poorly managed invasion of Iraq the war with Iran has been a COLD war. Bottom line is that the old marriage in between the Iranians and Americans has been broken and both sides have gone through a very bad divorce! So get over it because the bonds between the two countries have been broken and replaced with distrust [by you know WHO]. The US deserves good friends like Saudis and not Iranians!
The Monty doth protest too much, methinks.
Riddle me this, Monty; Are the same divorce lawyers who made a killing on the US-Iran debacle (by playing both sides against the middle and bilking them with exorbitant fees) going to handle the Sunni-Shia divorce as well?
Does the US plan on making an honest woman out of KSA or will it just keep her as a side chick?
Cui bono, Agha Ahwazi?
Agha in Kurdistan
In Kurdistan, within the tribal Kurdish society, "agha" is the title given to tribal chieftains, either supreme chieftains, or to village heads. It is also given to wealthy landlords and owners of major real estates in the urban Kurdish centers, although these landlords are usually with heavy tribal relations. The common tribesmen would honor the chieftains or the village heads by calling them "agha" or "agha" so and so. The "agha" would usually have a diwan or diwan-khane, a special room, or house, dedicated to the "agha" and his male guests, for sitting and drinking tea, discussing the affairs of the tribe and other mundane subjects. The agha and his guests would listen at times for local or visiting singers and story tellers (usually Jewish merchants or peddlers), who would entertain the "agha" and his guests. The common agha was in fact one person who was in charge of several major tasks of the tribal society under his jurisdiction: He was the head of the political unit, the main judge and arbitrator, the main military leader of his armed tribesmen, the main finance minister responsible mainly for receiving dues from his subjects for their harvest and commercial transactions committed under his jurisdiction. One of the best studies on "aghas" in the Kurdish society is the book of Mordechai Zaken, Jewish Subjects and their tribal chieftains in Kurdistan.

Ahwazi Arabs are an Arab community in Iran which resides mostly in the resource rich Khuzestan Province in southwestern Iran, bordering Iraq. This area is known as Ahwaz by the Arab community, and the capital of Khuzestan is Ahvaz. Ahwazi Arabs are the largest Arab community residing in Iran.

The marriage between the Mullas and empire still exists. The barking, harrassement and exporting violence and in particular sectarianism to the region have benefitted the empire greatly by forcing despotic regimes in the region to purchase hundreds of billions in weaponry.
It is shocking that Buchanan does not mention the recent atrocities in Iraq and the slaughter of civilians in southern petro chemical city of Ma,ashoor were tens and perhaps hundreds of ethnic Ahwazi Arabs were butchered by the Persian regime.
The rotten mullas cooperated with the empire against Afganistan Najib government and every progressive movement in the region. Their criminal support for the so called “northern allianc” , a coalition of heroin dealers and warlords is a perfect example of such cooperation.
The Mullas ,without help from Imperial powers, would never have been in power .
A reactionary medeival mulla like Komeini regime was and still is a perfect tool to confront nationalist movements .
The truth is that the government of sadistic Rabbis and reactionary Persian Mullas are in cahoots to divide the middle east between themselves.
The Yinon and Greater Persia plans are the same .

The term has also been used among Persian Jews, Bukharan Jews, Afghan Jews, and other Central Asian Jews to refer to the community's religious and/or secular leadership. In Kaifeng, China, the historic Chinese Jews who managed the synagogue were called "mullahs".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MullahThe Challenges of Spiritual Leadership
The viziers of Iran would arrest Jews such as Mullah Elijah, then chief rabbi of Shiraz, and require them to pay an exorbitant fee or convert to Islam. At first, Elijah said he would convert and become a Muslim, but he would need time to prepare for the transformation. However, when his time was up he refused to convert, so he was locked in a dungeon and brutally whipped. Unsurprisingly, missionaries who visited Shiraz at the time found that many of Shiraz’s outward converts were both socioeconomically and religiously miserable, held an inward contempt for Islam, and maintained the appearance of being identical to their Muslim neighbors while they continued to practice Judaism within their own homes.
Rab Yusef, also known as Ohr Shraga, was an Iranian mystic and Jewish leader for the community in Yazd during the late 18th century. A direct descendant of King David, he is known for performing many miracles, and his tomb in Yazd is considered a religious holy site for Jews and Muslims alike even today (Lalezar 2006). His counterparts were Mullah Mosheh Halevi of Kashan, a Kabbalist, rabbi, and author of books on Jewish mysticism, and later Mullah Rabbi Isaac of Tehran, one of the first rabbis to contact the Alliance Israelite Universelle in search of protection for the Jews of Iran from persecution by Shiite government officials.
Preserved marriage contracts show that intermarriage was also common among Persian Jews, even in ancient times. Ezra and Nechemiah, two of the later Jewish figures of the Tanach, publicly banned intermarriage and issued punishments to those who married outside the faith (Price 1996). In the century and a half that followed the construction of the Second Temple, the final codification of Jewish law—with its clear rule against intermarriage—was one of the prominent factors ensuring the continuation of the Jewish people in the Middle East, and Iran in particular. While it has not always been adhered to, the law, combined with a nearly constant threat of persecution, has been integral to the continued survival of Iranian Jewry (Bard 2010). The mass emigration of Jews from Iran in the mid to late twentieth century has proven the most trying to its preservation of faith and custom; hence, the more isolated communities that opted not to emigrate, such as the Jews of Mashhad, have seen lower rates of intermarriage than others.

I'd like to have you know Mullah Elijah was the chief rabbi of Hamedan. My great-grandfather and his fathers before him were the first Chief Rabbis of Shiraz. It started with Mullah Shlomo, then Mullah Darvish, then Mullah Pinchas, then Mullah Rachamim, then Mullah Yitzchak, then Mullah Yosef, then Mullah Shlomo, and then the last Chief Rabbi of Shiraz, my great-grandfather, Mullah Meir Moshe. I am very insulted that you would dare to denounce the fact that my forefathers were the Chief Rabbis and this Mullah Elijah was. Please email me back about the subject.
Silver Spring, MaylandSad Fate of Iran's Jews
By Parvaneh Vahidmanesh, Washington (source: Institute for War& Peace Reporting)
Many tell with horror the story of how the Jews of Mashhad were forced to convert to Islam in March 1839, in what is known as the Allahdad incident.
Over the years, some felt so threatened that they chose to convert to Islam, but continued to practice Judaism in secret - becoming so-called crypto-Jews.
One of the latter, Moshe Hakimi, from Mashhad, spoke to IWPR about this community's dual identity.
"Every newborn was told from his first years of life that we are living in times of crisis and that they must lead a double life. They told us that we must not talk about our personal lives in front of non-Jewish people. This absolute secrecy became second nature after reaching puberty," he said.
"Therefore, all Jewish converts to Islam had two names: for example, my grandfather's Muslim name was Sheikh Aboulghasem and his Hebrew name was Benjamin. My father's Muslim name was Ebrahim and his Hebrew name was Abraham. Outside they call me Mousa and at home, I'm called Moshe. In my father's lifetime, many of the Jews had very Muslim names. They even went to Mecca on pilgrimage and became Hadjis."
Some of these crypto-Jews observed Islamic creeds more zealously than the Muslims.
The Mozafarian and Froughi families are among the Jews who have embraced Islam in the past 100 years and found important social and political status for themselves.
Nasser Makarem-Shirazi, one of the Shia Grand Ayatollahs, who is close to the government, had Jewish ancestors. He is now known as a radical cleric. The Asgaroladi brothers, influential figures in the Islamic Republic, are also of Jewish descent. Habibollah Asgaroladi has for years been the secretary-general of the powerful Islamic Coalition Party. His brother Asaddollah is a powerful merchant, who is also the head of the Iran-Russia and Iran-China chambers of commerce.
http://www.payvand.com/news/10/may/1135.htmlCrypto-Jew is the correct term, as it also refers to Jews forced to adopt other religions and political philosophies while maintaining Jewish practices. Crypto-Judaism pre-dates the Inquisition, as Jews were forced by the Al-Mohavid invasions of Spain to become Muslims, creating Crypto-Jews who gradually fled to Christian districts for protection from the Muslims (see Roth's History of the Jews). In modern times outwardly Muslim Crypto-Jews are known to be in Meshed [Mashhad], Iran, and in Turkey.
http://shamash.org/lists/scj-faq/HTML/faq/13-05.htmlThe Crypto-Jewish Mashhadis: The Shaping of Religious and Communal Identity in Their Journey from Iran to New York
This book tells the little-known story of a fascinating crypto-Jewish community through two centuries and three continents. Beginning as a precarious settlement of a few families in mid-eighteenth-century Mashhad, an Islamic holy city in northern Iran, the community grew into a closely-knit group in response to their forced conversion to Islam in 1839. Muslim hostility and a culture of memory sustained by intra-communal marriages reinforced their separate religious identity, vesting it in strong family and communal loyalty. Mashhadi women became the main agents of the cultural transmission of communal identity and achieved social roles and high status uncharacteristic for contemporary Jewish and Muslim communities. … The Mashhadis maintained a double identity – upholding Islam in public while tenaciously holding onto their Jewish identity in secret. The exodus from Mashhad after 1946 relocated the communal centre to Tehran, and later to Israel and after the Khomeini revolution to New York. The relationship between the formation and retention of communal identity and memory practices – with interconnected issues of religion and gender – draws upon existing research on other crypto-faith communities, such as the Judeoconversos, the Moriscos, and the French Protestants, who through the special blend of memory-faith and ethnicity emerged strengthened from their underground period. For the immigration period, the author challenges the old paradigm that “modernity and religion are mutually exclusive”. The book also explores the sometimes uncomfortable yet intimate relationships that exist between seemingly incompatible ways of seeing the past, both secular and religious.

Long after his resignation, Nixon called Buchanan a confidant and said he was neither a racist nor an antisemite nor a bigot or "hater," but a "decent, patriotic American." Nixon said Buchanan had "some strong views," such as his "isolationist" foreign policy, with which he disagreed. While Nixon did not think Buchanan should become president, he said the commentator "should be heard."

German Students Tell The Truth About Iran | TAPPERSIA

A group of German Geography students traveled through Iran and we had the pleasure of hosting them for an evening at our office. Here is what they had to say about the travel and their experiences.
1) These lovely Germans kids, having obviously been radicalized by the "Mad Mullahs of the Persian Empire", should be placed on a “sleeper cell” watch list in perpetuity.
2) They’re there to recruit their Iranian peers with "neo-Nazi/Aryan" propaganda.
Those are the only two options for people plagued with the disease of Perpetual Paranoia.
Others might see this as a good development – a positive (not zero or negative) sum game.
