by Mansoureh Tajik for the Saker blog The explosion that killed Darya Dugina, Alexander Dugin’s daughter, was a hybrid crime of “hit, miss, and warn”. May God Rest Darya’s soul.

Death Rattles of the Global Arrogance and Its Appendages

by Mansoureh Tajik for the Saker Blog Intermittently and in between cries of discontent within Western cities, wailings of grief while burying blown-up pieces of flesh that belong to innocent adolescent school girls in Afghan cities, long sighs of exhaustion by mothers holding in their arms severely malnourished children with shrapnel-induced wound marks on their bodies in Yemeni cities, melodious roars of intifada heard for many corners in the Occupied
