While dealing with Iran one thing must be taken into consideration that Iran’s existence as an Islamic State so long is a miracle given the repeated aggression and embargo on her. Another miracle is that Unlike Iraq, Iran is not becoming the easy target of the Imperialists. Enjoying relative political stability, Iranians are united under one Imam enthused with this fact that they are directly guided by Imam Mahdi who they believe is in occultation.
Though these religious facts are beyond comprehension for western writers and thinkers, it is there. I cannot resist the temptation of quoting the famous line from Shakespeare- “There are many things in heaven and earth, Horatio,Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” Besides that arcane fact, Iran can boast of an unusual military, science and technological acumen especially in nuclear science.
However, Iran has time and again said that their nuclear reactors are aimed at generating energy and not nuclear arms and their claim is substantiated by even American National Intelligence Estimate. Iran’s view is that as the use of nuclear bomb is sure to cause huge collateral damage, it is un-islamic. Still the western forces are preparing the ground for another all out war on Iran.
They have already started the aggression in the form of killing Iran’s nuclear scientists and imposing stringent sanction on Iran’s oil sale. Actually the west does not want the Muslim countries to be too independent in knowledge and military power to depend on the west for help. It is time the so called torch bearers shun their hubris and come to reality that Muslims are changing very fast for the better as its seen in Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia and other middle East countries.
