– Far-Sighted Leader

The insight of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has kept the Islamic Republic’s upper hand in its deterrent missile prowess.  In the realm of national defense, the Islamic Republic of Iran has maintained a formidable stance thanks in large part to the strategic foresight of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution. As the architect behind Iran's missile program, Ayatollah Khamenei's influence has been pivotal in shaping the country's deterrent capabilities.

– Raisi criticizes Western suppression of pro-Palestine protests

The violent suppression of pro-Palestine student protests in Western institutions, especially in the U.S., has drawn opprobrium from Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, who noted that it reveals the actual essence of Western culture. During a cabinet meeting on Sunday, Raisi made similar statements, calling the arrests of academics and students that followed the violent repression of anti-Zionist protests “another scandal for self-proclaimed advocates of freedom of expression.”

– Iran decries U.S. police excessive violence against protesters

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani has denounced the U.S. police crackdown on students expressing solidarity with the people of Gaza Strip. During his weekly presser on Monday, Kanaani cited the numerous pro-Palestine demonstrations and sit-ins at American universities, pointing out that these events demonstrate the intensity of anti-Zionist sentiment as well as the global public’s vigilance regarding the Palestine issue.  They also highlight the extent of support for the Israeli regime’s genocide in Gaza, which has received backing from the U.S. and some European governments.


– Ben-Gvir: Kill Gazans, no need to detain them

Israel’s extremist security minister Itamar Ben-Gvir recently questioned the necessity of the detention of a large number of Palestinians in Gaza, suggesting that some captives could be “killed” instead of being arrested. According to the Times of Israel, Ben-Gvir was quoted as asking the army chief of staff: “Why are there so many arrests? “Can’t you kill some? Do you want to tell me they all surrender? What are we to do with so many arrested? It’s dangerous for the soldiers.”

– US deploys special forces to crush campus protests

Student protests on US university campuses over Israel’s war on Gaza showed little sign of letting up Monday, with protesters vowing to continue until their demands for US educational bodies to disentangle from companies profiting from the conflict are met. In what is perhaps the most significant student movement since the anti-Vietnam campus protests of the late 1960s, the conflict between pro-Palestinian students and university administrators has revealed an entire subset of conflicts.

– Norway’s FM blasts West’s double standards on Gaza

Norway’s Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide on Monday accused the Western countries of double standards on the second day of the World Economic Forum held here. With brutal war unraveling in Gaza and Ukraine, the foreign minister argued that the West’s support for the war-torn European country has been absent when it comes to violations of international law in Gaza. “Many Western countries hesitated to use the same type of language against violations of international humanitarian law, for instance, that we easily apply when they are violated by Russia in Ukraine,” Eide said.
