عملکرد هر پدیده از ماهیت آن سرچشمه می‌گیرد. وقتی اسم از ولایت فقیه می‌آوریم در درجه اول چیزی که به ذهن متبادر می‌شود این است که ولایت فقیه چرا؟ چرا رژیم آخوندی نیاز به توسعه و گسترش ایدئولوژی ارتجاعی و عقب‌مانده خودش دارد؟ به چه دلیل خامنه‌ای به خودش این اجازه را می‌دهد که خود را امام کل مسلمین جهان بداند! و در این زمینه هزینه کلان کند؟ در سال ۱۳۵۷ خمینی در شرایطی بر سر کار آمد که بیشتر مردم ایران عقاید مذهبی و سنتی داشتند؛ او با دجالیت تمام با سوار شدن بر این باور و عقیده توانست امیال شوم خود را پایه‌ریزی کند و خود را امام امت و ولی امر مسلمین جهان قلمداد کند. او با به قدرت رسیدن، مساجد و کتابخانه‌ها را به زندان و شکنجه‌گاه تبدیل کرد؛ زنان باردار و نوجوانان را بدون کوچکترین گناهی اعدام کرد و در یک کلام، به اسم دین و اسلام، پایه‌های دیکتاتوری مذهبی خود را شکل داد و در مواجهه با کوچکترین مخالفتی، با آوردن اسم دین و مذهب، مردم را به سکوت و خاموشی وادار کرد. وقتی از رهبری در جمهوری اسلامی ایران صحبت می‌کنیم به‌معنای آن است که حرف اول و آخر را او یعنی تنها یک نفر می‌زند. بقیه مناصب و ارگانها نمودی ظاهری دارند و در یک کلام، میان تهی هستند. بقای این ولایت، بر دو عنصر سوار می‌شود؛ سرکوب در داخل و صدور تروریسم در خارج از مرزها؛ در اینجا تنها نگاهی کوتاه به شرط دوم که ریشه در بنیادگرایی دارد پرداخته می‌شود. خمینی از همان سالهای بعد از انقلاب، پایه‌ریزی ایدئولوژی ارتجاعی‌اش را با ساخت مدارس برای کودکان و نوجوانان در عراق و سوریه و...به اسم کشافه المهدی آغاز کرد؛ در آن با خرج هزینه‌های گزاف و هنگفت، آموزش تئوری کودکان را در خط و مسیر اهدافش به دست گرفت و میخ ولایت سفیانی‌اش را محکم و محکم‌تر کرد. همین روند در میان جوانان، به‌صورت تأسیس دانشگاههایی به نام جامعه المصطفی برای طلاب جوان در آمد. در داخل ایران این امکان برای افراد خارجی در شهرهای قم و مشهد فراهم بود و در خارج از مرزها به‌منظور تبلیغ و گسترش اهدافش، در کشورهایی مانند هندوستان، افغانستان، عراق، یمن و کشورهای خاور دور و نزدیک. هدف، پایه‌ریزی ایدئولوژی بنیادگرایانه حاکمان تهران در ذهن و ضمیر کودکان و نوجوانان بود تا به این وسیله به نوعی، بقای این نظام منحوس تضمین شده باشد و گسترش آن به نسل‌های آینده نیز از این طریق، عملی گردد. مرحله دیگر کار، راه‌اندازی شبکه‌های گوناگون جهت تبلیغ و سرمایه‌گذاری فرهنگی در دیگر کشورها بوده است. این کار از طریق تأسیس کانال‌های ماهواره‌ای و محلی با هدف هدایت و حمایت از شبه‌‌نظامیان، دسته‌های عملیات تروریستی در منطقه و تهییج و ترغیب آنها صورت می‌گرفته است. نمونه‌هایی از این موضوع، تلویزیون آفاق در خدمت نوری مالکی نخست‌وزیر پیشین عراق، شبکه القدیر در خدمت سپاه بدر و یا شبکه فلسطین الیوم بوده‌اند. حقیقت این است که در این خصوص، سطور یک مقاله نمی‌توانند تمامیت تصویر شومی را که سایه اختاپوس شوم بنیادگرایی بر تمامیت منطقه گسترده، بازتاب نمایند. سایه‌ای که از سوی سپاه پاسداران ایران، هر روز گستره‌اش فراتر از روز پیش، پیش رفته و در جهت گسترش بنیادگرایی برخاسته از تهران، گامی دیگر به پیش برمی‌دارد. گامی، به بهای خون و جان و مال ملتهای مظلوم منطقه... در جریان آخرین تحقیقات در این خصوص، هزینه‌ای که رژیم ایران صرف چنین اقدامات سو‌ئی کرده، برابر با ۱۵۰میلیون دلار برآورد شده است. (البته فقط در زمینه سرمایه‌گذاریهای فرهنگی) آمار دقیق، بر کسی عیان نشده اما آنچه برای مردم ایران بسیار مشهود و ملموس است، گرانی زندگی است! مردم زلزله‌زده کرمانشاه که ماهها بعد از زلزله، از حداقل‌های دارویی و استقراری محروم هستند، طعم تلخ این محرومیت را با تمام وجود چشیده‌اند؛ همانها که کودکان خردسالشان، به‌دلیل عدم دسترسی به اولیه‌ترین و واجبترین ضروریات زندگی، در مقابل چشمانشان جان می‌دهند و بستگانشان را داغدار، در این دنیا باقی می‌گذارند... کارگران ایران، با ماهها حقوق پرداخت نشده و شرم از نگاه فرزندانشان برای اولیه‌ترین مایحتاج زندگی، این درد را با گوشت و پوست و استخوان، لمس کرده‌اند؛ آنها، طعم بنیادگرایی مذهبی را با گرسنگی و ناداری و فقر، چشیده و در برابر حقوق به یغما رفته‌شان، گاه جز خودکشی و خودسوزی، بر خود راه فلاحی نیافته‌اند... زنان، جوانان، مال باختگان، فرهنگیان و بازنشستگان نیز دردی مشترک دارند... بی جهت نیست که تمامی آنها برای خلاصی از وضع موجود، فریادهایشان را در یک جهت و با یک هدف بلند کرده‌اند: سرنگونی ولایت فقیه! چرا که تجاوز رژیم در خاورمیانه نشانه ضعف آن است و نه قدرت؛ این دیکتاتوری نه تنها حقوق‌بشر را در ابعاد بسیار بزرگ در ایران نقض می‌کند بلکه با بکار گیری منابع اقتصادی ایران، منبع بی‌ثباتی در سراسر خاورمیانه است. و این خطری برای کل جهان است. مقابله با این رژیم نه تنها به نفع مردم ایران بلکه به‌سود کل جهان خواهد بود. و این نیازمند یک سیاست قاطع در برابر این رژیم و به‌رسمیت شناختن مقاومت بر حق مردم و شورای ملی مقاومت و ایران خواهد بود.

ده و چند حکایتِ کوتاه از عبید زاکانی ۴
زشت رویی در آیینه به چهره خود می‌نگریست و می‌گفت سپاس خدای را که مرا صورتی نیکو بداد غلامش ایستاده بود و این سخن می‌شنید و چون از نزد او بدر آمد کسی بر در خانه او را از حال صاحبش پرسید گفت در خانه نشسته و بر خدا دروغ می‌بندد عربی به حج رفت و پیش از دیگر مردم داخل خانه کعبه شد و در پرده کعبه آویخت و گفت بار خدایا پیش از آن که دیگران در رسند و بر تو انبوه شوند و زحمتت افزایند مرا بیامرز مردی زنی بگرفت به روز پنجم فرزندی بزاد مرد به بازار رفت و لوح و دواتی بخرید او را گفتند این از بهر چه خریدی گفت طفلی را که پنج روزه زایند سه روزه مکتبی شود مردی نزد بقالی آمد و گفت پیاز هم ده تا دهان بدان خو شبوی سازم بقال گفت مگر گوهی خورده باشی که خواهی با پیازش خوشبوی سازی مردی دعوی خدایی کرد شهریار وقت به حبسش فرمان داد مردی بر او بگذشت و گفت آ یا خدا در زندان باشد؟ گفت خدا همه جا باشد عربی را پرسیدند که چونی گفت نه چنانکه خدای تعالی خواهد و نه چنا نکه شیطان خواهد و نه آنگونه که خود خواهم گفتند چگونه گفت زیرا خدای تعالی خواهد که من عابدی باشم و چنان نیم و شیطانم کافری خواهد و آن چنان نیم و خود خواهم که شاد و صا حب روزی و توانگر باشم و چنان نیز نیستم مردی زرتشتی بمرد و قرضی بر عهده او بماند پس مردی پسر او را گفت خانه ات را بفروش و قرضهای را که به گردن پدرت بود بپرداز گفت اگر چنان کنم پدرم به بهشت شود گفت نی گفت پس بگذار او در آتش باشد و من در خانه خود به آرامش مردی با خشم خویش نزد حاکم آمد و خواست تا سخنی گوید که ناگهان بادی از او بجست پس روی به قفای خود کرده و گفت آیا تو میگوئی یا من بگویم شخصی به مزاری رسید. گوری سخت دراز بدید. پرسید: این گور کیست؟ گفتند: از آن علمدار رسول است. گفت مگر با علمش در گور کرده‌اند؟ شخصی دعوای خدایی می‌کرد. او را پیش خلیفه بردند. او را گفت: پارسال یکی اینجا دعوی پیغمبری می کرد، او را بکشتند. گفت: نیک کرده‌اند، که او را من نفرستاده بودم.

کاخ هخامنشی ابونصر به ویرانه‌ای تبدیل شده است
کاخ-دژ 2300 ساله‌ی شیراز که به قصراَبونصر نامدار است در بدترین شرایط نگهداری و حفاظتی به سرمی‌برد و به ویرانه‌ای تبدیل شده است. این یادمان هخامنشی که در زمان آبادانی از شکوه و بالندگی ویژه ‌ی در روزگار خود برخوردار بوده، امروزه مورد دست اَندازی‌های فراوان و گوناگون جای گرفته و به تپه‌ای از خاک و سنگ تبدیل شده است. به گزارش اَمرداد، یادمان باستانی و ارزشمند نامدار به «قصراَبونصر» که از آن با نام نخستین اثر ملی ثبت شده ی شیراز و استان نام می برند در بدترین شرایط نگهداری و حفاظتی روزگار را سپری می کند و حریم و عَرصه ی آن در پیِ دستبرد و دست اَندازی (:تعرض) سودجویان اَموال فرهنگی زیر و رو شده و به هم ریخته است. زمین های کشاورزی حریم اثر و گِرداگرد این یادگار نیاکانی ارزشمند را فرا گرفته است. ساخت و سازهای اَفسارگسیخته و بی ضابطه در سه دهه ی گذشته به این سو، حریم و چشم انداز (:منظر) آن را خدشه دارکرده و همانند دیواری پیرامونش کشیده شده است. این درحالی است که اگر به نگاره های (:تصاویر) هوایی و نقشه های این منطقه در دهه ی 60 خورشیدی نگاهی کنیم، هیچ گونه ساخت و سازی در پیرامون آن دیده نمی شود و می توان به ژرفای فاجعه و زیر پاگذاشتن قانون های میراث فرهنگی پِی برد. هم اینک خار و خاشاک در جای جای این یادمان کهن روییده و بیشتر سنگ های دفاعی این دژ – کاخ بر اثر بی مهری و نبود مرمت و بازسازی و رسیدگی نکردن از سوی سازمان میراث فرهنگی، گردشگری و صنایع دستی و گذشت زمان از سازه جدا شده و بر روی زمین ریخته است. بر روی عرصه ی این یادمان دوهزار و اَندی ساله، از گذشته موتور سواران مسیری را برای خود درست کرده و از آن گذر می کنند که دل هر دوستدار تاریخ و فرهنگ و میراث ایرانی را به درد می آورد. چندی است که پَساب (:فاضلاب) خانه های بالادست به گونه ی جوی آبی در رو به رو و نزدیک این یادمان تایخی به زمین های کشاورزی سرازیر شده که اَفزون بر بوی بد و صحنه ی ناخوشایند آن، تهدیدی برای زمین های کشاورزی در پایین دست بوده و سلامت آن ها و مردم بومی را به خطر می اندازد. اما بی گمان بزرگ ترین و بدترین درد این یادمان بی همتا و یگانه، تاراج آن به وسیله ی نادانان و سوداگران اَموال فرهنگی است که به بهانه های خیال اَنگیز یافتن گنج دست به کَند وکاوهای غیرمجاز زده و به لایه های باستان شناسانه ی این اثر ارزشمند آسیب رسانیده و آن را به ویرانه ای تبدیل کرده اند.

رکوردشکنی نرخ دلار و طلا در بازار ایران: «سکه آتی» از ۳ میلیون‌ تومان عبور کرد
بازار آزاد ارز و سکه ایران، روز شنبه دور جدیدی از افزایش نرخ ارز و سکه را شاهد بود که طی آن رکوردهای تازه‌ای از سقوط ارزش ریال به ثبت رسید. در پی تلاطم امروز در بازار و بازتاب گسترده آن در شبکه‌های اجتماعی؛ رسانه‌های رسمی و نیمه‌رسمی درباره نرخ دلار سکوت کرده‌اند. با این حال مطابق اعلام دو خبرگزاری داخلی ایران، فارس و تسنیم، هر یورو در این بازار رکورد ۹۰۴۹ تومان را به ثبت رسانید و هر پوند انگلیس رقم تازه ۱۰۳۰۲ تومان را تجربه کرد. از این رو و با احتساب نسبت جهانی دلار به یورو، قیمت هر دلار در بازار آزاد ۷۷۸۲ تومان حدنصاب. صاحب صادقی دبیر اقتصادی روزنامه ارگان دولت، ایران، نیز نرخ دلار را در بازار آزاد امروز ۸ هزار تومان عنوان کرده است.

This massive pile of barrels will break your bourbon-loving heart

This massive pile of barrels will break your bourbon-loving heartTo the bourbon fans out there: I'm sorry for what you're about to witness.  I know it will pain you to see thousands of barrels piled up in a mess of broken wood and metal scraps rather than stacked neatly along the walls of your favorite distillery, but that's the unfortunate reality down in Bardstown, Ky. right now. SEE ALSO: 7 smoky beers to challenge your taste buds As the Courier-Journal reports, part of a warehouse at Barton 1792 Distillery collapsed on Friday, sending an estimated 9,000 barrels tumbling to the ground. No one was hurt.  In a statement provided to the newspaper, the company said it's in the process of assessing the damage and determining which barrels can be saved. An image snapped by the Bardstown, Kentucky Fire Department shows the aftermath of the collapse.Image: Chief Billy Mattingly/AP/REX/ShutterstockStill, there's concern that leaking bourbon could contaminate the ground water. As the New York Times reports, though initial testing "came back clean," state officials from the Division of Waste Management and from the Division of Water plan to continue testing.  Despite the collapse, the Courier-Journal reports that the distillery plans to stay open on Saturday for tours, as usual. The paper reports that the warehouse is just one of 29 warehouses on the distillery's property. While we're thrilled no one was hurt in the collapse, we'll be busy mourning the loss of what could be a serious amount of nice liquor. I mean, just look at the aerial footage, courtesy of CBS DFW: Pour one out for the barrels we've lost. WATCH: This gadget lets you pour wine without uncorking the bottle

Mystery extinct ape discovered in ancient Chinese imperial tomb 

Mystery extinct ape discovered in ancient Chinese imperial tomb An entirely new species of ape has been discovered buried in an ancient tomb in central China. The remains of the now-extinct gibbon, which researchers have named Junzi imperialis, were found in a burial chamber in Shaanxi Province that dates back around 2,300 years. Researchers believe it may be the first ape species to have perished as a direct result of human activities such as hunting. “All of the world’s apes - chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and gibbons - are threatened with extinction today due to human activities, but no ape species were thought to have become extinct as a result of historic hunting or habitat loss,” note scientists at the Zoological Society of London, who led the research. “However, the discovery of the recently extinct Junzi changes this, and highlights the vulnerability of gibbons in particular.” The skull of the extinct Junzi gibbon Credit: ZSL The Junzi are believed to have completely died out less than 300 years ago and could be one of a number of now-extinct gibbon species that once inhabited central China. Lead author Dr Samuel Turvey said the discovery suggests we are currently “underestimating the impact of humans on primate diversity”. “These findings reveal the importance of using historical archives such as the archaeological record to inform our understanding of conservation and stress the need for greater international collaboration to protect surviving populations of gibbons in the wild,” he added. A cranial reconstruction of the Junzi gibbon  Credit: ZSL The partial cranium and lower jawbone of the ape were found in the burial chamber believed to belong to Lady Xia, the grandmother of China’s first emperor, Qin Shihuang, who ordered the building of the Great Wall of China and the Terracotta Army sculptures. First excavated in 2004, the tomb contained 12 burial pits that contained animal remains, including leopards, lynx and black bears. Archaeologist Hu Songmei, of the Shaanxi institute, told Science that imperial Chinese burial chambers were commonly arranged in this manner so that the departed could “continue to enjoy the life they knew” in the afterlife. The Junzi gibbon was discovered in an ancient Chinese imperial tomb Credit:  ZSL Gibbons were also regarded as high-status pets and considered to be wise and noble animals during the period of Emperor Qin’s rule up until 210 BC. Today, gibbons are the most endangered of all the ape species due to a loss of their forest habitat, the illegal wildlife trade, the use of their body parts in Chinese medicines and poaching, according to the WWF. The world's most endangered species The Hainan gibbon, found on Hainan Island in southern China, is considered to be the world's rarest mammal, with only 26 still in existence. The full research has been published in the peer-reviewed journal Science.

The workers cite the use of Amazon technology by the US Department of Homeland Security and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, which have been criticised for enforcing Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy, which has seen parents separated from their children at the US border. Holocaust experts claim IBM's German subsidiary directly supplied the Nazis with technology which assisted the operation of concentration camps at Auschwitz and Treblinka.

US Border Patrol sets up surprise immigration checkpoint in Maine

US Border Patrol sets up surprise immigration checkpoint in MaineUS Border Patrol set up a temporary inland checkpoint on a Maine interstate, a move civil rights advocates say raises concerning questions about constitutional protections under the Trump administration. The inland checkpoint was first reported by the Bangor Daily News, which sent reporters to drive through the Interstate 95 stop and ask a few questions of the Border Patrol officers there. Drivers arriving at the checkpoint, which was there for 11 hours, were being asked citizenship questions before the agents were allowing them to proceed.
