Historically Thinking: Conversations about historical knowledge and how we achieve it

Some 5,000 years ago nomadic peoples of central Asia settled on the Iranian plateau. Their descendants would be the nucleus of an extraordinary empire that reached north to the lands of their ancestors, eastwards to India and China, and west as far as the Libyan desert and the Aegean Sea. These were the Persians, who not only created the first of the world-empires, but also brought about the first period of significant and continuous contact between the east and the west.  What is typically known about the Persians comes from Herodotus, who in his Histories told the story of how Persia came to invade Greece, and how the Greeks were able to repel the greatest empire yet known to mankind. But what is the Persian version of the story? What would the Persians have said about themselves? With me to discuss the Persian Empire of the Achaemenid Kings is Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones, chair of ancient history at Cardiff University, and director of the Ancient Iran Program for the British Institute of Persian Studies. His latest book is Persians: The Age of the Great Kings, and it is the subject of our conversation today. For Further Investigation Early in the conversation, when discussing the importance of the Persian's nomadic past, I made reference to a conversation with Pamela Crossley. This was Episode 185; her book on the importance of nomadic thought and culture for all of Eurasia is Hammer and Anvil: Nomad Rulers at the Forge of the Modern World. Lloyd had some tough things to say about Herodotus; for a different perspective, see my conversation in Episode 116 on "The First Historian" with Jennifer Roberts, a Herodotus scholar.

Photo:  Hamas was founded to liberate Palestine, including modern-day Israel, from Israeli occupation and to establish an Islamic state in the area that is now Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

However, much of the reporting ignored the history, funding, political dynamics, and other key components of the story. Hamas initiates conflict every few years, but the reporting rarely improves. Social media has only further clouded the picture. Hamas is rarely held responsible for its use of "human shields," blindly firing rockets at civilian areas in Israel, or diverting aid that should benefit the people of Gaza.              The Islamic Republic of Iran, a state sponsor of terrorism, has been the primary patron of Hamas since the group's inception in the late 1980s. Hamas has received additional assistance over the years from Qatar, Turkey and Malaysia. These countries are fomenting conflict, while others, such as Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, have tried to minimize it. Gaza is therefore ground zero in a struggle for the future stability of the Middle East.             The Biden administration has important choices to make. Its intent to re-enter the Iran nuclear deal could have significant consequences, given that sanctions relief to Iran will likely yield a financial boon for Hamas, along with other Iranian proxies. The Biden administration must also come to terms with "The Squad," a small but loud faction of the Democratic Party that seeks to undermine US-Israel relations.

“The Curious Case of Ahmadinejad” - Part 30 of the Roqe Media series, The Contemporary History of Iran. Is there are more mercurial figure in the modern history of Iran than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - the man who served as the president of the Islamic Republic from 2005 to 2013? The conservative politician is either seen as a supervillain, or a superstar, depending on your perspective, ideology, and maybe even your place in the world. But his tenure was undeniably controversial and chaotic. So, how do we explain Ahmadinejad, and how will he be treated in history books? Professor of Iranian History and Founding Director of the Institute for Iranian Studies at the University of St. Andrews, Dr. Ali Ansari, author of the book, “Iran under Ahmadinejad: The Politics of Confrontation,” joins Jian Ghomeshi from Fife, Scotland, to try to untangle the ascendance and legacy of the one of the more colourful and odd figures in Iranian politics.

“I love doing accents - Indian, Iranian, Arab. But now stand-up allows you to go do the movie of the week and then go on stage and make fun of it.” Maz Jobrani is a comedian, actor and entertainer - who happens to be Persian, but most definitely identifies as an immigrant. His Netflix special “Immigrant” at the Kennedy Center had him doing some Arab dancing to Public Enemy, he's given two TED talks, and has been on shows and movies you've seen like Superior Donuts (CBS), Grey's Anatomy, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Shameless, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, and even NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me. Maz has got more than a few comedy specials on Showtime and Netflix. He's performed at the White House and opened for Michelle Obama. His latest standup special is Pandemic Warrior on NBC's Peacock TV streaming service, and his weekly podcast “Back to School” has him outsourcing his kids' questions to experts on God, politics, fashion, and more.

Intelligence, Terrorism and National Security - Lieutenant Colonel BILL COWAN is a retired Marine Corps officer and has been a public speaker and Fox News Channel contributor on matters of national security and terrorism for the past 12 years. During the height of the Iraq War he was designated by the New York Post as the best military analyst on television. A Naval Academy graduate, he served 3 1/2 years on combat assignments in Vietnam as a Marine Corps infantry officer. A platoon commander during the siege of Khe Sanh, he subsequently spent an additional 2 1/2 years as an infantry advisor in the Rung Sat Special Zone. Decorated many times for heroism, he was also awarded three purple hearts for wounds received. Following the taking of hostages in Iran in 1978 and the formation of special mission units (SMU's) to conduct operations of a sensitive, highly skilled nature, he turned down a plum White House assignment to instead become one of the early members of the Pentagon's super secret Intelligence Support Activity (ISA). While there he was a key member of the team that hunted down those responsible for the bombing of the U.S. Marine Compound in Beirut. Working directly with CIA Chief of Station William Buckley, Cowan and the team identified many of the targets and developed a plan for retaliation. Regrettably, the Pentagon refused to take action. Buckley, who was taken hostage by Hezbollah and brutally tortured, died in captivity. Bin-Laden himself termed the U.S. a 'paper tiger' for failing to respond to the bombing or to Buckley's murder. In addition to a 30 year career of special missions and activities in support of the Pentagon and the CIA, most of them into the tumultuous Middle East, Bill's experiences include service as a U.S. Senate staff assistant to Senator Warren Rudman, including working as the Senator's principal staffer during the Iran/Contra hearings and helping write the law which created the U.S. Special Operations Command in Tampa; a clandestine rescue operation conducted with former CIA Director William Colby which resulted in the repatriation of a number of Americans stranded in Iraqi-occupied Kuwait; and, successful negotiations with the Iranians at the behest of the White House to secure the release of Western hostages being held in Beirut. Well known to Hezbollah, the Syrians, and the Iranians for his work against them, he is one who can speak with authority on matters of interest to many Americans. In 1995, while being interviewed by 60 Minutes' Mike Wallace in front of the destroyed U.S. Embassy in Beirut Bill opined that it was just a matter of time before we saw a similar incident in the U.S. Ironically he was less than a half mile from the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, as he watched American Airlines Flight 77 cross in front of him and hit the Pentagon. He was subsequently one of Wallace's first guests on 60 Minutes following the tragic events of 9/11. Known for telling it like it is, he's angered Republican and Democratic administrations alike with his no-nonsense approach, always basing his analysis and opinions of years of 'hands on' experience, not on academic or policy minded jargon. - www.colonelcowan.com For Your Listening Pleasure for these Lockdown / Stay-At-Home COVID and Variants Times - For all the radio shows available on The 'X' Zone Broadcast Network visit - https://www.spreaker.com/user/xzoneradiotv.

On COI #271, Kyle Anzalone and Connor Freeman discuss America's escalating proxy war with Russia and the latest Iran nuclear deal news. Connor talks about his latest article at the Libertarian Institute which covers the still growing consensus among the D.C. foreign policy blob, the corporate media, President Joe Biden's men, as well as Pentagon and NATO leadership that this war will last for “months and years.” Diplomacy is not even being tried. Top diplomat Antony Blinken appears to be calling for regime change, like his boss, and aid to the Ukrainians is now so bloated that it may soon surpass the State Department's yearly budget. Biden just requested Congress approve another aid package for Ukraine, this one costs $33 billion including more than $20 billion in weapons alone. The article also raises the alarm over the recent hawkish Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger's proposed Authorization For the Use of Military Force which calls for the deployment of U.S. troops to Ukraine in the event of a Russian chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons attack. This is essentially an invitation to bad actors who may carry out a false flag to manufacture the casus belli - at best - or a “redline” trap that could guarantee World War 3. Connor further updates the current situation regarding the JCPOA talks and the chances of the nuclear deal surviving or dying. The Israelis appear to be exerting political pressure on the U.S. right now and are claiming in their press that U.S. officials, in private discussion, speak as if the deal is already dead. Blinken is not helping matters, he is making baseless claims that the Iranians are attempting to assassinate Mike Pompeo, his blood-soaked predecessor. Regardless, after seven weeks of stalled talks, Iran continues to say indirect communication is ongoing and calls for the U.S. to make the necessary political decisions to get things going again. Tehran has even demanded direct, face-to-face talks with Washington diplomats. However, domestic American politics threatens to prevent Biden from doing what he should have done early last year, that is returning to the deal and lifting sanctions. Unfortunately, influential hawkish Democrats like Bob Menendez, midterm considerations, the Israeli pressure, and near-unanimous Republican opposition to any diplomacy with the Islamic Republic may all kill the deal soon.

Soodabeh Mokry, fled Iran as a 30 year old woman, in the early 1990's, after years of oppression by the then Iranian government. At the age of 19, as an activist, she had been arrested and beaten into a coma, narrowly escaping death. In this amazing episode, Soodabeh talks about her escape from Iran to what she hoped would be freedom in America. Arriving in the US with nothing, and no understanding of the English language, Soodabeh attempted to end her life. This was not the end for her, and the turnaround story we hear in this episode is simply wonderful. Soodabeh studied nursing and finally found her life and purpose in the US. It's heartwarming, and up-lifting. Thank you for your bravery and telling your story Soodabeh!

Korea24 – 2022.05.04. (Wednesday) News Briefing: North Korea has launched another ballistic missile into the East Sea. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said it flew 470 kilometers with a maximum altitude of 780 kilometers and top speed of Mach Eleven. It marks the regime's 14th show of force this year alone. (KOO Hee-jin) In-Depth News Analysis: A recent editorial in an Iranian newspaper has raised concerns that Tehran is looking to raise the pressure on Seoul to release seven billion dollars of Iranian funds that are frozen in Korean banks under US sanctions. The chief editor of the Kayhan called for the Strait of Hormuz to be closed to South Korean cargo ships and oil tankers, until the assets are released. This has alarmed Seoul, especially after a South Korean ship was seized by Iran last year. To assess the situation, Professor Park Hyondo from the Sogang Euro-MENA Institute joins us on the line. Korea Trending with Jenny Suh: 1. Authorities in China have launched an investigation after a South Korean man was found dead in his apartment in Shanghai, amid the city's COVID-19 lockdown.

Now I've Heard Everything

In the 1980s, the presidency of Ronald Reagan was facing two distinct foreign policy challenges. Members of Hezbollah had taken several Americans hostage in Beirut, Lebanon. And in Central America, a rebel group known as the Contras was trying to overthrow the socialist Sandinista government in Nicaragua. To free the hostages, the Reagan administration underook a secret plan to sell military missiles to Iran, in hopes that the Iranian government would persuade Hezbollah to release the hostages. In Nicaragua, meanwhile, the U.S. was funding, arming, and training the Contras. That is, until Congress abruptly cut off the entire funding. That's when someone had the idea to take the money that Iran was paying secretly for those missiles and hand it secretly to the Contras. The plan became known later as the Iran-Contra affair.

Joe and Dawn are back on VOM Radio share what the Lord has been doing through their discipleship training and Bible smuggling ministry in the Middle East. They will also share how God opened a new door to ministry among women trapped in prostitution. Joe and Dawn are involved in Bible delivery to persecuted Christians in Iran. Believers targeted by the Iranian regime face the challenging choice to flee the country or stay, knowing they could be imprisoned for their faith. A Christian sister has recently begun a two-year prison sentence, yet she reported to prison excited about the ministry opportunities God had prepared for her in prison. In spite of so much Christian persecution, thousands of Iranians are choosing to follow Christ. Joe says that for many of them, “Islam is getting old.” It is exciting for Joe and Dawn to be involved in the great harvest of church growth happening among people of the Middle East. There are also burdens Joe and Dawn carry as they labour in this ministry work. Listen to hear how they choose to give their anxieties to the Lord each day, and how they think about raising their children in a “dangerous” part of the world. They will share some of the key lessons they want their children to notice in their lives and in God's work around them. Last time they visited VOM Radio, Joe shared his testimony of how he met Jesus as a prisoner through God's Word, and how his life was completely changed. Listen here as he tells how God transformed him from a prisoner and criminal into a committed follower of Christ. Joe and Dawn will also encourage you to pray for open doors to deliver Bibles across all parts of Iran, and for their family during a season of rest and Sabbath with the Lord.
