    The Enigmatic A. Molotkov 

    This is an interview with a poet A. Molotkov by my friend Danielle who herself  is an excellent poet too.



    When I first heard the name, Anatoly Molotkov, it was at the end of the poetry reading that I had attended last month. Our host and coordinator, David Hill, announced that Mr. Molotkov would be reading on August 29th at the Barnes & Noble in Vancouver, WA. A few people were familiar with Anatoly Molotkov, or A. Molotkov as he’s published under. The news of his being our guest poet brought smiles to their faces. Their reactions aroused my curiosity. Guest poets were of the norm and met with great enthusiasm, but there was an extra buzz around August’s guest. Those familiar with him chattered quickly about his other performances. I caught a bit about entertaining and colorful. Colorful what? I was hooked.

    Feeling compelled not to miss out on a great opportunity, I quickly submitted my request to videotape the August reading. One email led to another and…

    English Translation of Lyrics

    Shelf ( Mukhda )

    What do you wish for ? What do you wish for?
    You want this earth, full of your co-believers !
    In the name of Religion, In the name of a Pride,
    Why are you alienating the human hearts?
    1st Stanza (Anthra)

    You are not more then a dust, you are a nothing in this universe,
    God gave you one more sense , and you become a God
    After seeing your brutality, this nature also get shivers, Shivers

    2nd Stanza (Anthra)

    Struggle among you still exist, no sight is there for patch up of hearts,
    If both side exits one day, how can life will reappears on this earth?
    Although the intention is noble, but the pathway is full of bloods

    3rd Anthra

    If your God also, had your outlook, then how he could have made this universe?
    Had he differentiated among all, why he put the blood in all with same color?
    You are also as of others; why are you alienate with others ?

    What do you wish for? What do you wish for?
    You want this earth, full of your co-believers!
    In the name of Religion, In the name of a Pride,
    Why are you alienating the human hearts?

    Trump’s Middle East Trip and Iran: How to Bring Peace? 

    The answer

    By Dr. Majid Rafizadeh

    Donald Trump embarked on his first trip overseas as President on May 19th. Destination, Saudi Arabia, of all places. After all the controversy about campaign rhetoric regardingIslam and his executive orders on travelers from Middle Eastern countries, his choice of what he called “the heart of the Muslim World’ as his first stop on his first trip came as quite a surprise to many.

    Even more unexpected were the “yes” responses by more than 50 Muslim heads of state to attend the Arab Islamic American Summit on May 21st.

    The timing, place and reception of the American president’s remarks at the Summit really should have come as no surprise. They reflect the shared goal of western and Muslim nations of “a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism.” And in that context, in comments long overdue for their clarity and lucidity, the American president called out the world’s number-one state sponsor of terrorism: Iran.

    In his words, “no discussion of stamping out this threat would be complete without mentioning the government that gives terrorists all three—safe harbor, financial backing, and the social standing needed for recruitment…  From Lebanon to Iraq to Yemen, Iran funds, arms, and trains terrorists, militias, and other extremist groups that spread destruction and chaos across the region. For decades, Iran has fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror.”

    It was a statement of policy long awaited in the Arab world and beyond. For too long, groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda have hoarded the headlines with their vicious massacres, bloody videos, and offensive rhetoric. They were allowed to define the narrative as “Islam versus the infidels,” to the dismay and outrage of Muslims worldwide, instead of calling it what it is: terrorism, plain and simple.

    This is not about Islam versus the West, or Arabs versus Persians, or Sunnis versus Shiites. It is about the civilized peoples of the world – of all faiths and cultures – joining together to defeat a barbaric, violent extremism that spreads destruction and chaos in the region, and brutalizes civilian populations, most of whom are in fact Muslim. To do so, they must recognize that the heart of the leviathan beats in Tehran. That fact has been well known to the peoples of the Middle East for almost four decades. As Trump stated, Iran is “a government that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing the destruction of Israel, death to America, and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room.”

    His words struck a chord among the Muslim leaders gathered in Riyadh, and again struck a chord at Trump’s next stop, Israel. And they struck a chord among the Iranian people, “the Iranian regime’s longest-suffering victims.”

    While the Iranian people did not have voice at the summit, Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance coalition, whose main component, the Mujahedin-e Khalq(MEK), espouses a  modern and tolerant Shia Islam, welcomed the vision of peace, prosperity and alliance against extremism propagated at the Riyadh Summit, and called on the international community to confront the Iranian government’s export of terrorism and fundamentalism, its ballistic missile program, its interference in the internal affairs of other countries, as well as its destructive regional and international role. Iran’s velayat-e faqih theocracy, with all its factions, sees only one hope for its survival: dogged pursuit of the fundamental policies of export of terrorism abroad and harsh suppression within Iran.  Its reckless drive to extend its influence throughout the region provides Syria’s Bashar al-Assad with the extremist reinforcements, funds and weapons he needs to massacre Syrian civilians, drive millions from their homes, and turn city after city into wastelands. None of those resources is turned on ISIS.

    In Yemen, Houthi rebels armed and financed by Iran spread death and destruction. In Iraq, militia led by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps incite sectarian strife, and thwart efforts by Iraq’s central government to unite the nation in a campaign to isolate and drive out ISIS. To confront this threat to the region and the world, the international community must cut off the flow of funds and forces from Tehran. In a nutshell, as Mrs. Rajavi emphasized, “The ultimate solution to the crisis engulfing the whole region is the overthrow of the velayat-e faqih regime.” The 100,000 Iranian expats and their supporters from around the world who are expected to attend an international convention in Paris on July 1, will echo that message. When Iran’s people have freed Iran from Islamic extremism, replacing the mullahs’ rule with freedom and popular sovereignty, in doing so they will bring the goal of stamping out extremism in the Middle East region that much closer.  It is time to enable them realize that task.
