Zarif: Iran will never submit to US pressures

“We will find a way. We have [done that] for 40 years, and will [do so] now too,” the top diplomat was quoted by IRNA as telling the Doha-based Al-Sharq newspaper on the sidelines of the 16th ministerial meeting of the Asia Cooperation Dialog (ACD) in the Qatari capital on Thursday. Acknowledging that the course of action taken by Iran to thwart US pressures is not an easy one, Zarif asserted, “We will never accept pressures against our nation…We will never bow under pressures.” Iran, however, would welcome all those extending a hand of friendship towards it, the Iranian foreign minister added. He joined the gathering a day earlier, when he addressed the attendees, warning about the “existential threat” that the US’s unilateralism poses to the entire international community. The “rising and aggressive unilateralist wave” threatens to affect the entire world, in which case, the rule of jungle would quickly replace the rule of law, Zarif said. Under President Donald Trump, the US has initiated what it calls a campaign of “maximum pressure” against Iran, pulling out of a multilateral deal with the country and re-imposing sanctions against it. With the sanctions, Washington has been seeking, among other goals, to bring Iran’s oil sales down to “zero.” The White House has also imposed so-called secondary sanctions that target other countries doing business with Iran. Zarif, meanwhile, reacted to a US plan to designate the Egyptian movement of Muslim Brotherhood as a “terrorist organization.” “The US is supporting the biggest terrorist in our region, namely the Zionist regime [of Israel]. Therefore, Washington is in no position to designate others as terrorists either in word or in deed,” he said, adding that Tehran condemns whatever action that Washington may take in this regard. The US recently took a similar move against the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Iran’s elite defense force last month, labeling it as terrorist. The Islamic Republic has gravely warned about the implications the move has for regional and international security, and reciprocally blacklisted American forces based in West Asia, known as the United States Central Command (CENTCOM). “Whatever action that the US has taken so far has been in line with sabotaging the region’s stability. I cannot even recall one instance, where the US might have taken a step towards [contributing] to our region’s stability,” Zarif concluded.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save Them

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
