Dec 2017: Iranian proxies in the #NinevehPlains. "Iran is using its proven strategy of co-opting local militias to encroach on Iraq’s Christian heartland.
The Babylon Brigade
The 1,000-strong Babylon Brigade is operationally part of the PMU umbrella, the volunteer forces formed by fatwa when ISIS neared Baghdad. Although it is currently led by Christian quasi-celebrity and former Mahdi Army affiliate Rayan al-Kildani, the Babylon Brigade is composed mostly of Shi‘a Arabs and Shabak not native to the area, and is supported by the Iran-backed Badr Organization. The Brigade did not participate in the battle for the Nineveh Plains, and it was only during the battle for Mosul that they positioned themselves in the town of Tel Kayf, right outside of the city.
Very little is known about the origins or inner workings of the Brigade. The PMU touts Al-Kildani as an example of its diversity and of the willingness among Shi‘a to include Christians in the country’s post-ISIS makeup. However, for many Christians, the pictures of al-Kildani on social media receiving the Eucharist or praying in a church are disingenuous attempts to highlight his Christian heritage and therefore his legitimacy as a Christian leader.
Their distrust of him is reasonable. At the beginning of the battle for Mosul, the Brigade became embroiled in controversy when a video of al-Kildani was released in which he tells Brigade members that the battle will be revenge against “the descendants of Yezid [a historical figure reviled by Shi‘a],” exacted upon the citizens of Mosul. This led the Chaldean Patriarch, head of the largest Christian church in Iraq, to assert that al-Kildani “does not represent Christians in any way. His deplorable statements are aimed at creating abhorrent sectarian strife.” Al-Kildani’s reference to Yezid and other statements have fueled rumors that he is a crypto-Muslim or the son of a convert.
The Babylon Brigade’s actions on the Nineveh Plains are of serious concern as well. In July 2017, member of the Babylon Brigade were caught stealing ancient artifacts from the Mar Behnam Monastery and nearby homes. The Nineveh Plains Units (NPU), a 500-strong militia aligned with a pro-Baghdad Christian political party that runs security in the Al-Hamdaniya District of the Plains, arrested six members of the Brigade in response. The Brigade responded by teaming up with another local PMU force to attack the place where the prisoners were being held captive, stealing several of the NPU’s weapons and vehicles in the process. In response to the incident, the Iraqi Prime Minister’s Office and the PMU High Command expelled the Babylon Brigade from the entire district.
In addition, al-Kildani has reportedly hosted leading Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in the Nineveh Plains. Al-Kildani has also photographed himself with the pro-Iranian politician Hadi al-Ameri of the Badr Brigade and U.S.-designated terrorists Abu Mehdi al-Muhandis of Kataeb Hezbollah and Qais Khazali of the League of the Righteous. In April of 2017, al-Kildani was hosted in Tehran by Iran’s Ambassador to Iraq and Qods Force commander, Iraj Masjedi. Using its “Christian” identity as a pretext, Iranian leaders have been able to use the Babylon Brigade to guarantee that they will have a say in Northern Iraq.

The Shi‘a Shabak
The Iranian regime has also been working to empower Shabak PMU forces and populations. Traditionally concentrated in the district of Hamdaniya and Mosul city, the Shabak have been historically treated as a separate ethno-religious group with a unique language. However, the community has faced severe pressure to submit to either an Arab or Kurdish ethnic identity.
The Shabak leadership is divided into pro-KRG and pro-Baghdad parties, each with their own militias affiliated with the two major powers. Sunni Shabaks (around 30 percent) generally support the KRG, while Shi‘a Shabak (around 70 percent) remain aligned with the central government and PMU leadership, including the powerful Iran-backed Badr Organization. The Shabak Democratic Gathering party, which advocates the formation of a separate Nineveh Plains province, is led by Dr. Hunain al-Qaddo, a member of Iraq’s Council of Representatives and an ally of Nouri al-Maliki’s State of Law block as well as the pro-Iranian Badr Organization.
Since the liberation of the Nineveh Plains from ISIS, Shabak have been buying homes and other properties with offers many desperately impoverished Christian refugees cannot refuse. The building of an Iranian-funded school in Bartella named after the Iranian Imam Khomeini further intensifies Christian fears of encroachment. Many Christians believe that the Shabak are being funded by an outside source, namely the Badr Organization, in a deliberate attempt to drive them out of their towns and change the ethnic makeup of the Nineveh Plains.
Lately, the Shabak PMU has been encroaching on Christian towns, with the encouragement of its Iranian backers. The operations of these fighters are not yet well understood, but Shabak militias based out of smaller Shabak towns and Bartella are viewed negatively by Christian forces. Their growing financial and military presence in traditionally Christian areas of the Nineveh Plains has complicated efforts to stabilize liberated communities. In much the same way as they made inroads into the Turkmen community, capitalizing on that relationship during recent events in Kirkuk and other disputed territories, Iran’s leaders are attempting to use the Shabak as their proxies in Northern Iraq.
Dec 2017:
At a checkpoint near the entrance of Syriac Christian town of Bartella – a poster of the Virgin Mary last month was ripped down and replaced with a side-by-side image of Khomeini and his successor, Ayatollah Khamenei.
In Iraq’s largest Christian town of Qaraqosh in the Al-Hamdania district of the Nineveh Governorate, Christian activists bemoaned that their small university – Al-Hamdania University – was recently directed, as per the federal government education ministry, to accept upwards of 180 mostly Shia students from central and southern Iraq, prompting protest from locals who feared having to give over their properties to the new influx.

24 Dec 2017:
Of the families who fled Bartella in August 2014, only 700 or so have returned. Over 1,000 have remained in the Kurdistan region, where they found refuge. The rest have managed to emigrate and leave Iraq.
The situation in Bartella is bad, Yacoub said, as there is hardly any electricity, no health care, a barely recovering education system and most importantly, no security. The problem is with the Shiite Shabak, a religious and ethnic group that has returned in larger numbers than the Christians. They have their own militia, part of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units, whose Shiite volunteers are feared due to the violent, vengeful behavior they displayed in the battle against IS.
Already problems have arisen, Yacoub said, with militiamen following Christian women in the streets, driving around playing their religious music at top volume and marching through the town beating their chests during the religious procession of Arbaeen, the yearly remembrance of the martyrdom of the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson. “It is disrespectful of the Christian people!”
There have also been problems between the militia and Christian young people trying to collect data on who has returned for the church for aid purposes. “The militia detained one of [the youths], saying he had no permission. Who are they to demand we get permission?”
The priest also complained about houses looted after the liberation and Christian agricultural land that was taken by Shabak families. “These are all indirect messages to the Christians not to return.”
He agreed with Kriaqosh. Given that the local Iraqi police have no power over the Hashd militia, people would feel safer if the Christian community undertook their own policing. But the local Christian force that was trained for that duty by the Kurdish peshmerga forces has been banned from entering Bartella due to that affiliation.
Many of Bartella’s Christians supported the Kurds in their recent referendum on independence, opting even to become part of a Kurdish state. But Baghdad’s harsh reaction to the referendum, taking back land from the Kurds and imposing sanctions, has also had a negative impact on Christians.

Jan. 28 attack on Sheikh Abdul Mahdi al-Karbalai, a representative of top Shiite cleric Ali al-Sistani, was no surprise. Those familiar with attacks on religious authorities in Iraq believe the incident, which took place while Karbalai delivered a Friday sermon, was orchestrated by Shiite groups that defected from the Najaf authority. Karbala Gov. Aqeel al-Turaihi stated Jan. 27, “Deviant groups were behind the attack."

Iraq Army plus PMU Shia militia raid a Christian church & cultural center in Syriac Christian town of Bartella, Iraq. They shutdown the internet in the town & damage the whole network. They also assaulted Iraqi Christians. Iraq is out of control. @HaiderAlAbadi @POTUS @VP
...Iraqi Christians have asked @HaiderAlAbadi for 1 year to remove PMU Shia militias from Bartella, a majority Christian town. Your refusal to do this @HaiderAlAbadi causes more harassment &violence towards Christians which @IraqiGovt is required to protect under Genocide convention
...This has become an emergency situation as Christian residents of Bartella are under constant attacks & harassment by Iranian-backed PMU Shia militias. They should be designated as int’l terrorist org & protection given to local residents. @HaiderAlAbadi @SecPompeo @brett_mcgurk

Infidelophobia in Shiism-II

Members of religious minorities cannot join the armed forces and, according to the 1987 Law of the Islamic Republic Military, this option is reserved only for Muslims. Also, according to the Islamic Penal Code, if the victim of a murder is a Muslim then the murderer is punished by qisas (“retribution”), but if the victim belongs to a religious minority then the murderer has only to pay diya or “blood money.”
What is more, the diya for a murdered Muslim was higher than the blood money for a non-Muslim. But the sixth Islamic Republic Parliament (2000-2004) changed this, and ruled that the diya for both Muslims and non-Muslims must be equal. The Guardian Council, which must approve all laws, rejected this, but the parliamentarians insisted and the Expediency Council overruled the Guardian Council.
Another example of legal discrimination against minorities is testimony in court. Iranian law does not accept the testimony of a non-Muslim against a Muslim — whatever the case.
Pouya Dayanim, President of the Iranian Jewish Public Affairs Committee (IJPAC), tells IranWire about other areas of legal discrimination, including inheritance laws. “In inheritance laws, if one child of a minority family converts to Islam he gets all the inheritance and the rest of the family gets nothing,” he says.

حضرت آیت الله جعفر سبحانی نے آج صبح اپنے در خارج فقہ کے آغاز پر جو سیکڑوں طلاب و افاضل حوزہ علمیہ قم کی شرکت میں مسجد اعظم قم میں منعقد ہوا ، حضرت امام صادق(ع) سے منقول روایت کی جانب اشارہ کیا اور کہا: حضرت (ع) نے فرمایا کہ مؤمن، مؤمن نہیں ہے مگر یہ وہ خدا کا خوف اور اس سے امید رکھتا ہو ۔
انہوں نے مزید کہا: اسلام سارے ادیان سے بہتر ہے ، یھودیت میں فقط امید ہی امید پائی جاتی ہے اور عیسائیت میں مکمل ناامیدی اور خوف ہے ، لھذا عیسائیوں کے پادری تارک دنیا ہوجاتے ہیں ، یہ دونوں ہی غلط ہے  ، کیوں کہ فقط اور فقط امید ہو تو انسان مغرور ہوجاتا ہے اور فقط و فقط خوف و ناامیدی ہو تو انسان سے اعمال کی توانائی چھن جاتی ہے ۔

ایک دوسرے سے دشمنی بھی عذاب الہی ہے
قرآن کریم کے مشہور مفسر نے بیان کیا : یہ پہلی جنگ عظیم و دوسری جنگ عظیم کیا ہے ؟ اگر یہ الہی عذاب ہو تو تمام صاعقہ سے بدتر ہے ، اختلاف جب خود انسان کے ہاتھوں سے ایجاد ہوتا ہے تو وہ تمام عذابوں سے بدتر ہے ، سورہ مائدہ میں فرمایا ہے کہ اگر کوئی عیسائی اور اسرائیلی  فکر رکھتا ہو تو اس کے درمیان اختلاف پایا جاتا ہے، یہ تعصب و جبری فکر یا اس کی جیسی فکر یہودی فکر ہے کہ جس میں مسلمان مبتلی ہو گئے ہیں ، اسلامی بات کرتے ہیں اور یہودی فکر کرتے ہیں ، اس وجہ سے کہ حوزہ علمہ میں قرآن کریم ، علم ، عقل ، کلام ، حدیث اور تفسیر متروک ہو چکا ہے ، بعض لوگ اسلامی گفت و گو کرتے ہیں اور ان کی فکر یہودی کی طرح ہے ، بہت سے لوگ ہیں کہ جو اسلامی بات کرتے ہیں اور کانٹ اور ڈکارٹ کی طرح فکر کرتے ہیں ۔

He said that the Holy Quran has introduced three groups of enemies of Islam and said, “The first group of enemies are the infidels, who will never be our friends; the second group are the hypocrites with whom we must always be cautious; the third group are the Zionists, who are the most difficult opponents.”

In conclusion, Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani stressed that we must be firm with the enemies and hypocrites so that they don’t dare act against Islam and Muslims and stated,

In the 2013 local council elections, Zoroastrian Sepanta Niknam was elected to the 13-member Yazd City Council, attracting a high number of votes. Kurosh Niknam believes this victory is what prompted Jannati. “When a Zoroastrian was elected as a member of Yazd City Council there were some negative reactions,” he said. “They believe that a non-Muslim cannot order Muslims around, whereas the local council is supposed to work for everybody in the city or in the village. Sepanta Niknam was not elected only by Zoroastrian voters — Muslims voted for him as well. "

 دشمنی یهودیان با اسلام از حسادت آن ها سرچشمه می گیرد
رییس حوزه علمیه اصفهان گفت: یکی از کارشکنی های یهودیان این بود که مسلمانان ضعیف النفس را شناسایی می کردند و با دادن وعده های توخالی به آن ها کاری می کنند که دست از اسلام بردارند تا بدین واسطه افراد دیگر را از گرویدن به اسلام بهراسانند.

The hostility of Jews to Islam emanates from their jealousy
The head of the Seminary of Isfahan said that one of the Jewish abusers was to identify the weak Muslims and give them hollow promises to stop Islam from interfering with the conversion of others.

به گزارش خبرنگار خبرگزاری رسا در اصفهان، حضرت آیت الله حسین مظاهری در جلسه تفسیر قرآن صبح امروز که در مسجد امیرالمؤمنین(ع) خیابان جی برگزار شد، گفت: دشمنی یهودیان با اسلام از حسادت آن ها سرچشمه می گیرد.

Ayatollah Hossein Mazaheri, at the Qur'anic commentary meeting in the mosque of Amir al-Mu'minin (AS), avenue of Jay, said: "The hostility of the Jews to Islam emanates from their jealousy, according to Reza News Agency in Isfahan.

آیت الله مظاهری:
کارشکنی یهودیان، امروز در قالب صهیونسیم جهانی علیه نظام اسلامی جریان دارد
آیت الله مظاهری گفت: قوم یهود علیه اسلام تبلیغ و کارشکنی می کردند و امروز این کارشکنی ها در قالب صهیونیسم جهانی علیه تشیع و نظام اسلامی درجریان است.

Ayatollah Mazaheri:
The Jewish laborers are today in the form of a universal Zionist against the Islamic system
Ayatollah Mazaheri said: "The Jewish people propagandized and trampled on Islam, and today these crimes are in the form of universal Zionism against Shi'ism and the Islamic system.

وی تبیین کرد: تذکر قرآن به یهودیان به خاطر این است که آن ها در برابر اوامر پروردگار تسلیم نبودند، همچنین به مردم خدمت نمی کردند و زندگیشان با ترس از آینده و غصه از گذشته توأم بود.
He explained: "The reminder of the Qur'an to the Jews is because they did not submit to the Lord's orders, nor did they serve the people, and their lives were fraught with fear of the future and the grief of the past."

حضرت آیت الله مظاهری با بیان این که مسلمانان صدر اسلام بسیار متدین بوده اند، اذعان کرد: مسلمانان صدر اسلام شدیداً به خداوند امید داشتند و در برابر اوامر پرورگار تسلیم بودند، همچنین بسیار به فکر مسلمانان دیگر به ویژه فقرا بودند، به همین سبب زندگیشان با یک شادی عجیب توأم بود؛ قرآن با بیان این تذکرات قصد دارد بگوید، مسلمانان اهل بهشت هستند ولی یهودیان به جهنم خواهند رفت.

The Ayatullah Mazaheri, declaring that the early Muslims of Islam were very religious, admitted: "The early Muslims had a great hope for the Lord and submitted to the righteous orders, and also they were very much concerned with other Muslims, especially the poor, so their lives With a strange joy, the Qur'an intends to say that the Muslims are from paradise, but the Jews will go to hell. 
23 May 2017:
Speaking in his class on the interpretation of the Quran in Qom’s Amir al-Momenin Mosque, Grand Ayatollah Hoseyn Mazaheri said, “The Islamic Republic will stand with all its might against the sabotage by the Zionist Jews.”

The revered Shi’ah cleric referred to verse 114 of Surah al-Baqarah, and said, “In my last lecture, I said that after the death of Moses, the Jews acknowledged a lot of prophets but because of their love of the position and the world, they opposed other religions and they sabotaged the affairs of the prophets, including Prophet Solomon, Shu’ayb and David and in the addition to this sabotage, they killed religious people and destroyed their places of worship.”

Ayatollah Mazaheri added that the sabotage of the Jews continued until the Christians came to power and inflicted great damage on them and also they transformed the current location of Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque into a deserted place. 

“With the advent of the Prophet Muhammad, the al-Aqsa Mosque left its state as a deserted place and the Jews were given a new life but instead of thanking Muslims, they engaged in sabotage against Islam,” he said.

حذف فرهنگ شهادت از کتب درسی، مصداق نفوذ کفار در امور مسلمانان
رییس ستاد اقامه نماز گفت: بر اساس آیه شریفه «و لن یجعل الله للکافرین علی المؤمنین سبیلا»، امضای هر قراردادی که از سوی آن کفار در امور مسلمانان نفوذ پیدا کنند، حرام است.
Removing the culture of martyrdom from textbooks is an example of infidels' influence on Muslim affairsThe head of the headquarters said: "According to the verse," and Len Yajalullah Lilacafirin Ali al-Mu'minin Sibila, "the signing of any agreement with the infidels that let them have influence on the affairs of the Muslims is forbidden.
 آیا آن چه این روزها در عربستان رخ داد عزت اسلام است؟ اسلامی که می گوید حتی ساختمان کفار نباید بلندتر از مسجد مسلمانان باشد چرا که «لن یجعل الله للکافرین علی المؤمنین سبیلا.»
 What is happening in Saudi Arabia these days? Islam, which says that even the building of the infidels should not be higher than the Mosque of Muslims, because "Lan Yajalullah Lalekaperin Ali al-Mu'minin Sabila."
حجت الاسلام والمسلمین قرائتی با اشاره به مطرح شدن بحث امضای اسناد بین المللی فرهنگی، تصریح کرد: شنیده شد کفار قراردادی را برای امضا آورده اند که بر اساس آن باید زندگی شهید حسین فهمیده را از کتب آموزش و پرورش حذف کنند. حسین فهمیده همان کسی است که امام(ره) فرمودند این نوجوان 13 ساله رهبر من است. در نتیجه بر اساس آیه شریفه «و لن یجعل الله للکافرین علی المؤمنین سبیلا»، امضای هر قراردادی که از سوی آن کفار در امور مسلمانان نفوذ پیدا کند، حرام است.
Hujjat al-Islam and Muslims read a reference to the issue of the signing of international cultural documents, saying: It was heard that the infidel had signed an agreement on the basis of which he should remove the life of martyr Hussein Fahmida from the education books. Hussein Fahmida is the one who Imam said that this 13 year old teen is my leader. As a result, according to the verse "And Lan Yajalul Llakaperin Ali al-Mu'minin Sibila", the signing of any agreement imposed by the infidels on the affairs of the Muslims is forbidden. 
They were later released on bail, but Naderi was then one of five Christians arrested during a picnic in the Alborz Mountains north of Tehran in August last year. Bet-Tamraz’s son, Ramil, was also among that group, though he and two others have since been released on bail. Naderi and a second Christian, Hadi Asgari, continued to be detained.
Victor Bet-Tamraz led the Tehran Pentecostal Assyrian Church before it was shut down by Iran’s Ministry of Interior in March 2009. He had previously found it difficult to find a lawyer willing to act as his defence counsel. Some lawyers have experienced a backlash after representing Christians in court.
Iran is eighth on the Open Doors 2017 World Watch List of the 50 countries where it is most difficult to be a Christian. At least 193 Christians were arrested or imprisoned in Iran in 2016, many of them converts.
“According to the Iranian state, only Armenians and Assyrians can be Christian,” explains Open Doors. “Ethnic Persians are by definition Muslim, and, therefore, ethnic Persian Christians are considered apostates. This makes almost all Christian activity illegal, especially when it occurs in Farsi – from evangelism to Bible training, to publishing Scripture and Christian books, or preaching in Farsi.”
Many Iranian Christians have either been forced to leave the country or have chosen to. Some have ended up in the migrant camps of Europe, as World Watch Monitor reported earlier this year.

حضرت آیت الله سبحانی نے قران کریم میں روح سے متعلق آیات کی جانب اشارہ کرتے ہوئے کہا کہ یہ آیتیں یہودیوں کی جبرئیل امین سے اور رسول اسلام (ص) سے دشمنی کی بیان گر ہیں ۔
حوزہ علمیہ قم میں درس خارج فقہ و اصول کے برجستہ استاد نے مزید کہا: خداوند متعال نے سورہ بقرہ میں خود کو ان لوگوں کا دشمن بتایا ہے جو خدا و ملائکہ اور جبرئیل کے دشمن ہیں ، دیگر آیات میں بھی حضرت جبرئیل امین سے یہودیوں کی دشمنی کا تذکرہ ہے ۔
انہوں نے اس بات کی جانب اشارہ کرتے ہوئے کہ یہودی پوری تاریخ میں معمولا حیلہ گر انسان رہے ہیں کہا: وہ اس طرح کا سوال بنا کر یہ سمجھنا چاہ رہےتھے کہ اگر مرسل آعظم(ص) روح کے سلسلے میں یہ کہیں گے کہ وہ تباہی مچانے والی ہے تو یہودیوں کو ایک دوست مل گیا ہے اور اگر روح کی تعریف کریں گے تو مرسل آعظم(ص) یہودیوں کے دشمنوں کی صف میں ہوں گے ۔
حضرت آیت الله سبحانی نے مزید کہا: خداوند متعال ، یہودیوں کی چالبازی سمجھ گیا اور اس نے رسول اسلام(ص) پر وحی نازل کی کہ وہ کہیں کہ روح ، امر الھی یعنی خدا کا حکم ہے ، یہ روح اگر عذاب نازل کرتی ہے تو خدا کے حکم سے اور اگر نعمت عطا کرتی ہے تو بھی خدا کے حکم سے اور اگر پیغام لاتی ہے تو بھی خدا ہی کے حکم سے لاتی ہے ۔

یهودیان غالبا در طول تاریخ انسان های حیله گری بوده اند
حضرت آیت الله سبحانی با اشاره آیات مربوط به روح در قرآن تأکید کرد که این آیات بیان دشمنی یهودیان با جبرئیل امین و بیان توطئه آنها علیه پیامبر اسلام است

Jews have often been cunning people in history
Ayatullah Sobhani, referring to the revelations concerning the spirit in the Quran, emphasized that these verses express the hostility of the Jews with Gibreel Amin and their plotting against the Prophet of Islam.

حضرت آیت الله سبحانی ادامه داد: ما اگر بخواهیم حقیقت سؤال را درک کنیم باید توجه داشته باشیم که سائل یهود بوده است و یهودیان ارتباطی با مسأله روح و مجرد و ماده نداشتند و اساسا این مباحث فلسفی است و ارتباطی به احوال یهود نداشته است.

The Supreme Leader, Ayatullah Sobhani, continued: "If we want to understand the truth of the question, we should note that it was a Jewish person, and that Jews were not related to the soul and matter of matter, and that they were essentially philosophical, and had nothing to do with the Jewish state.وی با بیان اینکه با در نظر گرفتن مجموع آیات منظور یهودیان از روح حضرت جبرئیل است، تأکید کرد: یهودیان جبرئیل را که روح الامین است خائن می دانستند و معتقد بودند که جبرئیل نبوت را از آل اسحاق می گیرد و به آل اسماعیل می دهد و گاهی هم می گفتند او همیشه مخرب و بلا آفرین است و به همین جهت دشمن جبرئیل بودند.
He stated that taking into account the sum of the verses of the meaning of the Jews from the spirit of Gabriel, he emphasized: The Jews considered Gabriel, who is the soul of Al-Amin, a traitor and believed that Gibreel would take prophecy from Al Ishaq to Al Isma'il and Sometimes they also said that she was always devastating, and therefore they were the enemy of Gabriel.
 استاد برجسته درس خارج حوزه ادامه داد: خدا در سوره بقره خود را دشمن کسانی می داند که با خدا و ملائکه و جبرئیل دشمنی می کنند و در آیات دیگر نیز عداوت یهودیان با جبرئیل را متذکر شده است.
The prominent professor in the lesson outside the area continued: God in his surah al-Baqara sees himself as the enemy of those who are hostile to God and angels and Gibreel, and in other verses, he has also noted the Jewish hostility with Gibreel.
 وی با اشاره به اینکه یهودیان در طول تاریخ انسان های حیله گری بوده اند، خاطرنشان کرد: آنها با طرح این سؤال به دنبال این مطلب بودند که اگر پیامبر ما در مورد روح بگوید او مخرب است پس دوستی برای یهود پیدا شده است و  اگر از روح تعریف کند دشمن آنها است.
Referring to the fact that Jews have been cunning people throughout history, he noted: "By asking this question, they sought that if our Prophet speaks about the soul, he is destructive, so that a friend has been found for the Jews, and if he Soul Definition is their enemy.
 حضرت آیت الله سبحانی ادامه داد:  خدا توطئه یهودیان را فهمید و از پیامبر خواست که بگوید روح الامین مأمور خدا است اگر عذاب نازل می کند به امر الهی است، اگر نعمت می بخشد به دستور خدا است و اگر پیام ها را منتقل می کند باز هم به امر خدا است.
The Prophet Ayatullah Sobhani continued: "God understood the conspiracy of the Jews and asked the Prophet to say that the Spirit of Al-Amin is the agent of Allah, if the punishment is revealed, it is divine, if it is blessed, it is on the command of God, and if it sends the messages open It is also for the command of God.
 وی تصریح کرد: باید بگوییم مسأله خان الامین مربوط به همان عصر رسول خدا است که مورد اعتقاد یهودیان بوده و امت اسلامی هرگز به چنین مطلبی اعتقاد ندارد.

“Mohabat News” – the old cemetery of Armenians and Christians in “Kermanshah” city, like many other ancient cemeteries and Christian historical places in Iran, has been destroyed, due to careless and opportunist officials who have not taken any actions for these ancients legacies.
(Kermanshah has the biggest population of Kurdish people and is the most important city in the west portion of Iran.)
According to the videos and photos that have been sent by eye witnesses to the news agency of “Mohabat News,” the municipality of Kermanshah has attempted to destroy these historical places intentionally.
Previous extremists elements broke the grave stones having the approval of security agencies and mobilization (Basij) Force.
Notwithstanding that a huge portion of these lands have been taken by the municipality with different excuses only a small area with very few graves remained until now and those have been attacked recently.
As an example, the municipality of Ahvaz has destroyed the Christian graveyards and stolen the crosses on the graves of Armenians and the Polish.
The other incident is the destruction of ” British Cemetery” of the Christian Cemetery in Busheher, which has been used by Armenians and Christians. These lands were sold later on and many constructions took place on those lands.
Also, the historical graveyard in ” Ghale Dokhtar” area in Kerman Province, was also completely ruined. This graveyard was approximately more than 200 years old.
Historical Church of Kerman was also recorded as one of the national legacies of Iran, however, it was completely destroyed. This church was recorded as one of the national legacies in 2008 and was supposed to be under the full protection and repair, but it was completely destroyed with unknown reasons in August, 2012.
The cemetery of Christians in Tehran (Dulab) which goes back to Reza Shah has buried many polish soldiers and officers after the second world war, many physicians in Pahlavi Court and many Armenian artists and Catholics and evangelicals; and is in real danger of destruction and a portion of this place might be taken by Tehran Municipality.
Some of the Christian graveyards in Tehran, are also in the danger of destruction, such as the International Graveyard of Evangelical Christians in Tehran which few of the graves were replaced about six years ago! This replacement was due to the road construction connecting Tehran to Ghom.

“I wear a headscarf despite being an atheist,” said Ms. Ahmed, who studies biology at the school, about 115 miles south of Baghdad. “It is difficult not to wear it in southern Iraq. Few women take the risk not to cover their hair. They face harassment everywhere.”
Her fears stem from the remarks of powerful politicians such as Ammar al-Hakim, the head of Iraq’s Islamic Supreme Council, a major Shiite political party and the president of the National Alliance, a Shiite parliamentary bloc.
“Some are resentful of Iraqi society’s adherence to its religious constants and its connection to God Almighty,” Mr. al-Hakim said on his party’s TV channel in May, claiming a rising tide of atheism was threatening the Arab world. “Combat these foreign ideas.”

Christianity has been growing at an exponential rate in the last couple of decades in Iran, causing the Islamic government a great deal of concern. In a most recent expression of their distress, one of the high profile Islamic seminary officials, Ayatollah Alavi Boroujerdi, stated “accurate reports indicate that the youth are becoming Christians in Qom and attending house churches”.
However, this is not a new development. Earlier reports had also shown a surprising rise in the number of Iranians turning away from Islam and converting to Christianity.
One of the most senior Islamic Shi’ite clerics who has repeatedly expressed his concern over the spread of Christianity among the youth in the country is Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi. He, as well as most of his colleagues blame the foreign influence for the conversion of young Iranians to Christianity.

The children are members of the non-Trinitarian ‘Church of Iran’ denomination in the northern city of Rasht, near the Caspian Sea, and the historical southern city of Shiraz, respectively.

On September 2, the Iranian Students’ News Agency reported [Persian link] that Sepanta Niknam, a Zoroastrian member of Yazd City Council, would no longer be allowed to carry out his activities as city councillor. “According to Islamic jurists in the Guardian Council, membership of a Zoroastrian in Yazd City Council is against sharia laws,” said the Guardian Council’s spokesman Abbas Ali Kadkhodaei. On September 4, Iranian media reported that the Court of Administrative Justice had issued a ruling forbidding Sepanta Niknam from continuing his work at the council.
The ban was actually announced in April, a month before local elections, which took place on May 19, the same day as the presidential election. On April 18, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, who chairs both the Guardian Council and the Assembly of Experts, issued a directive demanding that non-Muslims be disqualified from running in the forthcoming local elections in localities where the majority of the population are Muslim. He also announced that Article 26 of the City and Village Election Law was “against sharia.”

The professors of the seminary said that Westerners want to make the world in their culture, said: everyone knows that concerts are a tool of western culture and the salinity (joy, excitement) that is achieved there is materialistic.

As reported by “Mohabat News”, few photos of “Esther and Mordecai” shrine in Hamedan, one of the holiest places for Jewish people all over the world, have been published in social media that show the “Star of David” which used to hang at the entrance was destroyed intentionally.
According to the old photos of this building, an iron-made Star of David star was placed on the glass that lies on top of the entrance door of this holy shrine in order to protect these glass. However, two sides of this 6 sided Star of David was intentionally cut to make it look it a torch rather than a star!
Local sources of “Mohabat News” in Hamedan inquired from the authorities responsible for this shine and they replied that Basij militia officers broke the star a few years back, which leads to another question that in case this is true then why no one has intended to repair this holy star during these years.
Another example of this hatred of Jewish people in the Islamic Republic of Iran goes back to December 2011 in which they tore down few sections of a dome in Enghelab square in Tehran that was a part of the Tehran subway ceiling and resembled the Star of David. As a result, Tehran municipality destroyed the construction of that section of the subway.
The important point is that this construction was designed by Tehran municipality engineers. Few weeks before the destruction of such an expensive construction, the extremists started a rally after the Friday prayers (Namaz) in front of Tehran University and demanded the destruction of this new and expensive construction. They accused the municipality which was headed by “Mohammad Ghalibaf” at that time, of promoting Judaism in Iran.

آیت الله طباطبایی نژاد:
پیام جمهوری اسلامی ایران، عدم پذیرش سلطه کفار است
Ayatollah Tabataba'i Nezhad:
The message of the Islamic Republic of Iran is rejection of the infidels domination
ما باید باور داشته باشیم که
 هیچگاه کفار صلاح ما را نمی خواهند و به نفع ما کاری انجام نمی دهند مگر اینکه از دین خود دست برداریم.
We have to believe that infidels never want to help us and do nothing in our favor unless we turn away from our religion.
وی با اشاره به آیه 120 سوره آل عمران به معرفی دشمنان اسلام پرداخت و افزود: "إِنْ تَمْسَسْکُمْ حَسَنَةٌ تَسُؤْهُمْ وَ إِنْ تُصِبْکُمْ سَيِّئَةٌ يَفْرَحُوا بِها" اگر خیری به شما برسد آنها ناراحت می شوند و اگر بدی به شما برسد خوشحال می شوند.
Referring to verse 120 of Surah al-Imran, he introduced the enemies of Islam and added: "If good things happen to you, they will be upset and if you are ill, they will be happy."
نماینده ولی فقیه در استان اصفهان خاطرنشان کرد: اختلاف افکنی و تجزیه کشورهای مسلمان از جمله اهداف کفار است تا بتوانند تسلط بیشتری بر آنها پیدا کنند از این رو ما به استناد آیه "يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنُوا لا تَتَّخِذُوا الْيَهُودَ وَ النَّصاري‏ أَوْلِياءَ" باید با هوشیاری کامل بدانیم که کفار دوست ما نیستند و این پیام را به همه مسلمانان دنیا برسانیم.
The representative of the Wali Faqih in Isfahan province noted that the dispersion and division of Muslim countries are among the infidels' goals in order to gain more control over them. Hence, we should use the verse "Oh belivers, don't make Jews and Christians your friends" We fully understand that our infidels are not our friend and that we send this message to all Muslims in the world.

وی در پایان برای خواهران بوسنی و هرزگوین آرزوی موفقیت کرد و گفت: امیدوارم فعالیتهای فرهنگی و دینی شما بزرگواران زمینه ساز وحدت بیشتر و تحقق آیه " أَشِدّاءُ عَلَى الكُفّارِ رُحَماءُ بَينَهُم" باشد.

He wished for success to the sisters of Bosnia and Herzegovina and said: "I hope that your cultural and religious activities will bring about greater unity and the realization of the verse "hash on infidles and softa among themselves".

وی با اشاره به اینکه یک جریان فرهنگی فاسد در آخر الزمان به وجود می آید که جهانی می شود، گفت: خدا و معنویت در فرهنگ غرب، غروب کرده وهویت انسان را ریشه کن و به شهوت تبدیل می کند.
Referring to the fact that a corrupt cultural process is created at the end of the universe that becomes global, he said: "God and spirituality are dying in Western culture, and they eradicate humanity and turn into lust."

وی اضافه کرد: در این فرهنگ هویت انسان به شکم و شهوت تعریف شده است و دائم در تنوع شهوت قرار دارد و فرهنگی که چشم مادی دارد و این فرهنگ را یهودیان تولید می کنند.
He added: "In this culture, the human identity is defined as a belly and lust, and is constantly in a variety of lust, and a culture that has a material eye and produces this culture by the Jews."
 استاد حوزه و دانشگاه تصریح کرد: شدیدترین دشمن مومنان یهودیان هستند که در برابر انبیا ایستادند و بیشترین قومی که در قرآن اسم برده شد قوم بنی اسرائیل است که الان درقالب نژاد پرستان صهیونیست فقط خودشان را آدم می دانند و با کمترین هزینه دیگران از میان می برند.
The professor of the university and the university stated: "The most severe enemy of the believers of the Jews who stood against the prophets, and the most people who have been named in the Qur'an are the Israeli people who now perceive themselves as zealous and at the least cost to others." brand.

 وی افزود: عمده مراکز تولید فرهنگ، هنر و خبررسانی در دست یهودیان است که فرهنگی را با میلیاردها دلار تحت عناوین بی غیرتی تولید و به دنیا صادر می کنند.
He added that major centers of culture, art and news production are in the hands of the Jews, who produce and produce a culture of billions of dollars under the title of "outrageous".

 حجت الاسلام والمسلمین عالی گفت: سالانه 80 درصد فیلم های دنیا در هالیوود تهیه می شود، همه فیلم ها پیام دارند، 7 شرکت بزرگ که هالیوود را تشکیل می دهند فیلم هایشان جذاب بوده‌و دو هدف خشونت و هرزگی را دنبال می کنند.
 Hojjatoleslam and the Muslim Brotherhood said: "Annually, 80% of the world's films are made in Hollywood, all of the videos are broadcast, the top 7 companies that make up Hollywood are fascinating films, and they pursue two goals of violence and frustration.

به گفته وی فرهنگ فاسدی که تولید می شود هزینه انبوه می خواهد؛ اما برای ساخت یک فیلم در کشور ایران اگر بودجه ای کم بیاورند بودجه فرهنگی را کم می کنند.
According to him, the corrupt culture that is being produced would cost a lot, but to make a film in Iran, if they make a budget, they will reduce the cultural budget.

 وی ادامه داد: فتنه خانه های ما را گرفته و در زندگی مان رگ های شیطانی وارد شده که نمونه آن تغییر سبک زندگی است که همه به آن مبتلا شدیم.
 "The intrigue of our homes has taken us, and evil spirits have entered our lives, for example, a change in our lifestyle, which we all suffered from," he said.

حضرت آیت الله نوری همدانی نے اپنی گفت و گو کے سلسلہ کو جاری رکھتے ہوئے اظہار کیا : قدس اور مسجد اقصی تمام مسلمانوں سے متعلق ہے اور عالم اسلام کو چاہیئے کہ اتحاد کے ساتھ صیہونی حکومت کے مقابلہ میں کھڑے ہوں اور صرف لفظی مذمت پر اکتفا نہ کریں ۔
انہوں نے بیان کیا : جب تک صیہونی حکومت خطے میں موجود ہے لوگوں کو سکون و آرام و عزت و اطمینان حاصل نہیں ہوگا اور مسلمانوں کے درمیان اتحاد و دشمن کے مقابلہ میں جہاد کے علاوہ کوئی راستہ نہیں ہے ۔
حضرت آیت الله نوری همدانی نے اپنی تقریر کے اختمامی مراحل میں بیان کیا : اس وقت قدس شریف کا مسئلہ مسلمانوں کے لئے بنیادی مسئلہ ہے اور مسلمانوں کو چاہیئے کہ اپنے اتحاد کے ذریعہ اسلام سے متعلق قدس شریف کو صیہوںی کے ہاتھ میں باقی رہنے کی اجازت نہ دیں اور اگر مسلمان عزت ، عظمت ، اور قدرت و طاقت چاہتے ہیں تو جہاد کے علاوہ اس کے حصول کے لئے کوئی راستہ نہیں ہے ۔

آیت الله جوادی آملی نے مزید کہا: ان کی نگاہ میں انسانوں کے مسائل اور انسانیت کی کوئی اہمیت نہیں ہے ، جانب قران کریم نے اس بات کی کئی جگہ تکرار بھی کی ہے ۔ قران کریم نے فرمایا کہ کفار سے جنگ کرو کیوں کہ یہ عھد شکن اور بے وفا ہیں ، البتہ وہ کفار جو تم سے مقابلہ نہیں کرتے ان سے نہ الجھو ، ان سے دوستانہ تعلقات قائم کرو ، لہذا انسانوں کو قران کی اس بات پر دھیان دینا چاہئے اور عھد شکن کفار کے مقابل سیسہ پلائی دیوار بن جانا چاہئے تاکہ ان کے دلوں میں خود و ہراس بیٹھا رہے ۔
25 Dec 2017:
On Monday, December 25, worshippers arrived at the city’s Hadash Synagogue to find that prayer books had been thrown into toilets and scrolls from the Torah had been torn up — drawing immediate condemnation from the international Jewish community, which appealed to Iranian authorities to protect Jews living in the Islamic Republic. 
One day before, unknown perpetrators attacked the Kashi Synagogue, one of the oldest synagogues in the ancient city.
“Hadash Synagogue was just recently renovated and so it did not have a good security and alarm system,” Pooya Dayanim, President of the Iranian Jewish Public Affairs Committee (IJPAC), told  IranWire. “In the past few days two or three attempts were made to enter the synagogue by breaking down the door. They succeeded on the night of December 24. They tore up two Torah scrolls. They also damaged three other scrolls and threw a number of siddurs [a set order of daily prayers] into toilets.” Dayanim said the damage done at Hadash was “far greater,” but expressed that both attacks were shocking and extremely troubling.
This is not the first time that Shiraz synagogues have been attacked by unknown vandals, but it is the first time that Torah scrolls — considered to be holy by Muslims and Jews alike, have been desecrated. “A few years ago another synagogue in Shiraz was attacked and Torah scrolls were stolen,” said Dayanim. “Around a year later the Revolutionary Guards said that they had found the scrolls and had returned them to the temple. But never have the holy books and the Torah been desecrated or damaged like this.”

وی اضافه کرد: متأسفانه در بعضی از کتب فقهی از قرآن زیاد استفاده نشده است در حالی که باید به قرآن توجه بیشتری شود، در قرآن آیاتی فراوانی دارد که اگر در حوزه مورد توجه باشد و آموزش داده شود بسیار اثرگذار خواهد بود مانند این که می دانیم خداوند متعال سلطه بر مسلمین از سوی کفار را جایز نمی داند و این سلطه در زمینه های گوناگون اقتصادی،سیاسی، فرهنگی و اجتماعی تعریف می شود و باید در حوزه ها مورد بحث قرار گیرد.

"As long as Tel Aviv, New York, and Washington live in peace, we will have ruin and destruction," he said, adding: "We are being destroyed and these countries are safe, which means that they are our destroyers. The Jews!" Mentioning the antisemitic hadith about the Prophecy of the Rock and the Tree, Sheikh Al-Lami said that the Jews would "suffer merciless humiliation" at the hand of the Muslim believers. He declared: "Our Lord does not need to strike the arrogant nations with TNT or nuclear bombs, in order to destroy them. All the tyrants met their end by simple means." The address was posted on Sheikh Al-Lami's Youtube channel on October 1, 2018.
