Nobody realized "violence and extremism" are problems until Iran pointed it out. If only everyone would listen to Iran . . .
The title of this little IRNA gem is "President: World seeing Iran's warnings on extremism to come true." Savor the sentence beginning "We introduced":

From our potential ally against ISIL:
Commander of Iran's Basij (volunteer) force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is under the command of the White House and has been created to implement the US plots in the region.
"The command center of the ISIL is in the White House; the US itself has created this cancerous tumor and deflected stream in the region, and its plan to fight the ISIL is also the continuation of the same evil plot that it has pursued so far," Naqdi said, addressing a ceremony in the Central province of Yazd on Sunday.
He elaborated on the US goals of creating the ISIL, and said the first goal is displaying a fake face of Islam, which has been attained by the ISIL's inhuman and savage crimes in the region and releasing their images and footages in the world media; the second goal is sowing discord among the Shiites and Sunnis; the third and most important goal of the US is preventing the spread of the Islamic Revolution in the world and its recruitment of anti-arrogance forces.
Naqdi described another goal of Washington as preparing the ground for the US military intervention and deployment of its forces in the Middle-East.
Naqdi had also earlier lashed out at the US and Israel for sponsoring the ISIL.
"The criminal US created, equipped and armed the ISIL terrorist group with the help of the wicked Britain and the child-killing Zionist regime as well the petrodollars of oil-rich countries and they ordered it (ISIL) to carry out crimes and large-scale massacre of Shiites and Sunnis and disrupt their tranquility on the pretext of a sectarian Sunni war on Shiites," General Naqdi said, addressing a gathering of thousands of Basijis in Lorestan province on Wednesday.
He noted that the western countries wanted to introduce a tainted image of Islam to the world by displaying horrible crimes and savage wickedness against children, women and innocent people with extreme brutality and savagery in a bid to harness the huge waves of Islamism and tendency for Islam in the world, specially the western countries.
General Naqdi reiterated that the arrogant powers had created the ISIL and every now and then they attacked the terrorists to portray that they were fighting terrorism while the American, British and Israeli military advisors were supporting them in the battlefield.
"The outcome of the actions of this terrorist current in Syria was unprecedented as it caused people's high turnout in that country's presidential election, which set as yet another example of the inefficiency of weapons and the victory of the resistance movement against the global arrogance," he added.

It' a wonderful day in the axis-hood:
Hundreds of Palestinians hoisted Tuesday photos of Cuban leader Fidel Castro and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro during a march in Gaza to express gratitude for Latin American solidarity.
Chanting slogans in support of Latin America and to repudiate the slaughter perpetrated by the Israeli army which left over 2,000 dead, mostly civilians, including children, women and elderly, and over 10,000 injured, protesters spent the march called by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), reported Prensa Latina.
Besides posters with pictures of the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chavez, who broke relations with Israel following a military assault on Gaza, and current Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro, PFLP members and supporters also raised photos of Ghassan Ben Jeddou.
Ben Jeddou is the president of the Pan-Arab Al-Mayadeen media corporation, whom they thanked for the realistic way in which his network covered the bombings carried out by Zionist forces and the strong resistance of the Palestinian people, added the press release.
During the popular mobilization there were also posters with the image of Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, general secretary of the Lebanese Shiite resistance movement Hezbollah (Party of God), whose support for the Palestinian counterpart organizations was fundamental.
Also, Gazans walked the streets of the coastal enclave amid the ruins of houses and buildings bombarded by the Zionist army with flags of Palestine, Iran and Syria, the only two Middle Eastern nations that maintain consistent support for the Palestinian cause.

Angry Arab denounces Meshal as having "the visage of a liar" and then wonders if Meshal's denial of hating Jews will be reported
You can't make this up:
Now that the war on Gaza is over although the siege and occupation of Gaza by Israel is not over, we can resume the discussion of Hamas and its lousy opportunistic leader, Khalid Mish`al. His statement yesterday was almost word-for-word dictated by his sponsors in Qatar. This is a man who has no political integrity and who offered his movement back in 2011 to the highest bidder, as was reported in Al-Quds Al-Arabi. His list of "thanks" yesterday was a lesson in political opportunism--he even thanked Kuwait and Oman for their stances on Palestine. This man is the Yasser Arafat of the Qatari government and his path will emulate that failed path of Arafat. If Hamas were to develop into a resistance movement in the full meaning of the world, this man has to be ousted. He is one of the worst Palestinian leaders in the history of the movement and has the visage of a liar when he speaks. However, he made a clear statement to Jews in the world yesterday stressing that his movement was not in any way hostile to Jews and Judaism. Was that reported in the US press, I wonder? Will that ever be reported in the US press, I wonder? I just woke up and I have not seen US papers.

Who better to speak for all world progressive people?
On August 9, unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown was shot to death by Officer Darrell Wilson, a white policeman, in Ferguson City, Missouri State, the U.S.Meanwhile, "youth and students" had "dancing parties" to celebrate something called "Youth Day." Korean News reports: "They were filled with boundless glory and happiness being blessed with the illustrious leaders generation after generation." And all we have is Obama.
Such serious racial discrimination in the U.S. sparked off world public uproar.
In this regard, Chae Mu Jin, a researcher at the Law Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences, told KCNA:
Fierce anti-racism protests are now taking place in across the United States over the death of black teenager. The world public termed this catastrophic situation a civil war.
However, President Obama has taken a carefree attitude toward the case, only expressing "regret."
His attitude angered the black community and all other people in the world. Protests remain strong in more than 100 cities of the U.S. and police ruthlessly crack down on protesters, leaving some of them wounded.
But, Obama is still keeping mum about the situation in his country, though he has talked much about other countries' "human rights performance".
This clearly shows that the U.S. call for "human rights" is no more than propaganda and Obama, its boss, is just a puppet without principle.
Obama, who has refused even to remain a human being to say nothing of a statesman, slandered the DPRK over "human rights" in cahoots with traitors to the nation during his trip of south Korea.
The Korean people will never forget such behavior and surely force him to pay dear price for it.

The title is "Hezbollah praises Gaza resistance role in truce":
The Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah has praised the role of the Palestinian resistance in reaching a truce deal with the Israeli regime. On Tuesday, the movement issued a statement, saying the will, steadfastness, and persistence of the resistance brought about the Palestinians’ victory against the Israelis.More on the great victory here.
The Egyptian-brokered deal would not have been achieved without the resistance and that Palestinians’ victory would lead up to more triumphs, the statement read.
The Lebanese movement also voiced congratulations to Gazans and extolled efforts to reach a consensus on the terms of the ceasefire.
The truce, which took effect in the war-torn sliver at 19:00 local time (1600 GMT), will rid the territory of its seven-year-old blockade.
The truce stipulates the removal of Israeli blockade as well as the provision of a guarantee that Palestinian demands will be met.
Israeli warplanes and tanks started pounding the blockaded enclave in early July, inflicting heavy losses on the Palestinian land.
Almost 1,450 Palestinians, mostly civilians, including women, children and the elderly, were killed in 50 days of the Israeli onslaught on Gaza. Around 11,000 others were injured.
Tel Aviv says 69 Israelis have been killed in the conflict, but Hamas puts the number at more than 150.

Interesting mix of gloating and whining:
Palestinian resistance fighters in the besieged Gaza Strip have continued to fire rockets into Israel in retaliation for the relentless Israeli onslaught on the blockaded sliver.
The Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, launched retaliatory rockets against several Israeli cities, including Tel Aviv, Sha'ar HaNegev and Sdot Negev, on Monday.
According to reports, four Israelis were injured in Ashdod.
Palestinian fighters also fired several rockets into the town of Eshkol, injuring at least one Israeli.
In addition, the resistance fighters launched attacks against a military base in the Negev Desert.
More than 2,130 Palestinians, including around 570 children, have been killed since Israel launched its onslaught on Gaza on July 8. Some 11,000 others have been wounded.
The United Nations says over 80 percent of the killed Palestinians have been civilians.
Nearly 400,000 Palestinian children are in immediate need of psychological help due to “catastrophic and tragic impact” of the Israeli war, according to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
Tel Aviv says 68 Israelis have been killed in the conflict so far, but Hamas puts the number at more than 150.
