Nowruz: An Ancient Festival Which We Should Know About

Some people say that it’s the 5774th time that Iranians across the world are celebrating the ancient Persian New Year festival, Nowruz. However, some history experts believe that Nowruz has been enshrined and observed for more than 15,000 years, even before the official establishment of the Persian Empire.

Iran Is Not isolated: When The Olympics Make Iranians Proud

For the Iranian people, the 2012 Olympic Games in London which wrapped up earlier on August 12 was thoroughly different from the previous editions of the summer Olympics.

Media Silent As Iran Arrests Suspects In Assassination Of Nuclear Scientists

The announcement by Iran’s intelligence ministry that it has arrested 20 people associated with the terrorist operations in which two of the country’s nuclear scientists were assassinated received the Western mainstream media’s meaningful silence, but clearly demonstrated the influence and might of Iran’s intelligence apparatus, giving a serious warning to the hell-bent enemies of the […]

Israel’s Assassins And Tehran’s Killers

Who Cares About The Iranian People?

Who Cares About The Iranian People?
