Tehran’s Int. Shakespeare Conference

WilliamShakespeare[1]The University of Tehran has announced that it will be holding Iran’s first conference on world famous British play-writer, poet and novelist, William Shakespeare. The one-day conference will be held on October 22, 2014. It will be chaired by two Iranian scholars of Shakespearean work, professors Maryam Beyad and Ismail Salami (University of Tehran).

Shakespeare was author of 38 plays, 154 sonnets and two long narrative poems.

Famous British Shakespearean scholar Dr. Martin Lings (died 2005), who later converted to Islam and penned a biography on Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), revealed in his book Shakespeare in the Light of Sacred Art (1998) that mysticism is clearly discernible in the works of Shakespeare.

No objective intelligence can be blind to the dazzling signs of God-given truth that Islam carries with it throughout its history,” said Martin Lings, PhD.

I bet the organized Jewry is not going take the conference as a literary event – based on their record of vicious attacks over Tehran’s Int. Holocaust (2006) and Int. Hollywoodism (2011) conferences in the past.

The organized Jewry has declared Shakespeare a “Jew hater aka antisemite” based on his famous play, The Merchant of Venice. The villain in the play, by the name Shylock, the Jewish money-lender who seeks” a pound of human flesh” from a Christian merchant who is unable to repay him.

Last year, Jewish novelist Howard Jacobson announced to re-write The Merchant of Venice in order to delete Jewish hatred from the play. “For an English novelist, Shakespeare is where it all begins. For an English novelist who also happens to be Jewish, The Merchant of Venice is where it all snarls up,” said Jacobson.

In March 1974, then president of powerful Israel lobby group, Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, Benjamin R. Epstein blasted ABC-TV for showing The Merchant of Venice movie, starring Sir Lawrence Olivier as Shylock.

It is a classic antisemitic drama which has caused incalculable harms to the Jewish people over centuries,” said Epstein as reported by JTA on March 19, 1974.

Interestingly, John Hudson, a Jewish authority on Shakespearean literature claims that Shakespeare was in fact an Italian woman livening in England whose ancestors were Jewish from Morocco. I bet this will make 25,000 Jews living mostly in Tehran, very excited.

In 2012, the British Jewish Lobby (Board of Deputies of British Jews) blasted Royal Lyceum theatre in Edinburgh over flyers advertising its play, The Merchant of Venice. The flyers show Shylock dressed in the costume of an Orthodox Jew (see below) with the message: “And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?

Erdogan: ‘No regime change in Turkey’

Erdoganindark[1]Turkey’s March 30 municipal elections have proved Zionist pundits wrong. Erdogan’s ruling AK Party received over 45% of the vote while capturing the most populated cities of Istanbul and Ankara. It was an impressive victory for the Islamists who were under attack from secularists, pro-Army, pro-Israel and American Jewish lobby groups for the last 12 months.

The results will surely boost Erdogan’s chance to win presidential election in August 2014, if he decided to contest. It has encouraged him to ignore membership to European Union which Turkey has been trying for the last 23 years. The vote of confidence will allow him to carry out Turkey’s independent policy toward Iran.

The western Zionist-controlled mainstream media has blamed for several dictatorial activities, which have been practiced in the so-called “civilized West” for decades, such as, press freedom, police crackdown on anti-government protestors and corruption at high places. The Jewish Lobby have accused Erdogan of bypassing USraeli “crippling sanctions” and helping Iran to make $12 billion in gold sale between 2012-13 and helping “Iran to launder oil and gas revenues via Turkish entities in Dubai and China” – and blocking access to Twitter and You-Tube.

Erdogan, on the other hand, blames world organized Jewry for provoking the Gezi Park protests and thus destabilizing Turkey in order to bring an anti-Iran regime in Ankara. The AKP government is also showing its independence in military sector. Even though, the only Muslim member of NATO, Ankara recently sought Chinese long-range anti-missile batteries.

President Abdullah Gul is the only possible contestant against Erdogan’s bid to become the first directly-voted President of Turkey in the coming election. Gul has voiced disagreement over some of Erdogan’s policies, especially military confrontation with neighboring Syria, and the way Ankara has handled the anti-government protests. Gul is also supporter of further closer relations with Iran over Syrian conflict.

Erdogan’s mentor, Turkey’s first Islamist prime minister, professor Necmittem Erbakan in an interview he gave to anti-Islamist Turkish newspaper Today Zaman (published on December 6, 2010), he called Recep Tayyip Erdogan “a Crypto Zionist”.

Why on earth did the AK Party give a ‘go ahead’ to the membership of Israel in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and not block membership? Why did the government consent to multi-billion dollars worth of defense contracts with Israeli firms? Erdoğan says ‘one-minute’ to Shimon Peres during Davos but conducts business as usual with Israel. This is hypocrisy,” said Erbakan.

Pakistan: Anti-Hindu riots over desecration of Holy Qur’an

Muslims in Sindh provincial cities of Karachi, Hyderabad and Larkana observed a shutter down strike on Sunday in protest against the desecration of Holy Qur’an. The situation in the province where most of country’s 3 million (2%) Hindu minority lives, is still tense after Saturday rioting when angry mobs attacked temples and damaged some shops owned by Hindus in Karachi and Larkana.

In Larkana, the police arrested the Hindu who is accused for burning pages of Holy Qur’an. The provincial government has called-in the Rangers (para-military border police) to help the local police to protect Hindu temples, shops and homes. Police has completely sealed the areas surrounding Hindu temples and dharashalas.

After the partition of the British-ruled India, a great majority of Hindus had left the four provinces of British-Raj (Punjab, Sindh, Sarhad and Baluchistan, which became part of Pakistan on August 14, 1947) for the Hindu majority India. However, only a small minority of Hindus in the fifth province of Pakistan, the East Pakistan (Bangladesh) opted for India. Hindu still make 20% of Bangladesh population.

In spite of Hindu and Zionist propaganda lies, many leaders of Pakistan’s non-Muslim minorities served as Pakistan’s governing elites. Pakistan’s non-Muslim government ministers included Derek Cyprian, Col. SK Tressler, Shahbaz Bhatti, Raja Tridev Roy, Justice AR Cornelius, Akshay Kumar Das, Basanta Kumar Das, Kamini Kumar Datta and Kamran Michael. Pakistan’s first foreign minister, Sir Zafarullah Khan belonged to non-Muslim Ahmedi minority. Pakistan’s first law minister, Jogendra Nath Mandal, was a Hindu. Justice AR Cornelius became the first Hindu Chief Justice of Pakistan Supreme Court followed by Hindu Rana Bhagwan as the Acting Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. High-ranking Pakistan Army officers include Maj. Gen. Julian Peter, Brigadier Samson S. Sharaf, Col. SK Tressler, etc.

The anti-Muslim Zionist media is always looking for some excuse to spread lies about Islam and Muslims by lying that Islam doesn’t teach tolerance toward non-Muslims. But its tune changes, when someone insult Geeta, Bible, and Torah or even challenge the Holocaust, the new Western religion.

Last week, Hindutva parties slammed Indian Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for blaming RSS party for the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi and BJP party for the murder of over 2,000 Muslim men, women and children – and raping and abducting hundreds of Muslim girls in Gujrat state in 2002.

On March 5, 2002, Rajiv Chandrasekeran exposed Hindu terrorism at the Jewish Washington Post.

Hundreds of Hindu militants, many wielding sledgehammers, metal rods and shovels gathered in front of the Manchaji mosque in Ahmadabad. They knocked down the minarets and smashed through walls. They hoisted saffron-colored Hindu nationalist flags atop the rubble. And on a concrete slab in the center of the compound, they erected an orange, foot-tall idol of the monkey god Hanuman, surrounded by coconuts and flower petals,” wrote Chandrasekeran.
