Israel's Edge: The Story of The IDF's Most Elite Unit - Talpiot

by Jason Gewirtz

How will Israel keep its strategic edge over an increasingly dangerous Iran? Israel has been preparing for this day by creating a special and secretive IDF unit called Talpiot.

Instead of being trained to fight, the few soldiers each year selected for Talpiot are taught how to think. In order to join this unit they have to commit to being in the army for ten years, rather than the three years a normal soldier serves.

Talpiots are taught advanced level physics, math and computer science as they train with soldiers from every other branch of the IDF. The result: young men and women become research and development machines. Talpiots have developed battle ready weapons that only Israel's top military officers and political leaders know about. They have also dramatical...

The Persianate World: The Frontiers of a Eurasian Lingua Franca

by Nile Green

A free open access ebook is available upon publication. Learn more at www.luminosoa.org. Persian is one of the great lingua francas of world history. Yet despite its recognition as a shared language across the Islamic world and beyond, its scope, impact, and mechanisms remain underexplored.

From Siberia to Southeast Asia, and between London and Beijing, this book shows how Persian gained, maintained, and finally surrendered its status to imperial and vernacular competitors.

Color In Mind: The Golden The Black And The White In Islam

by r da costa vaughan

PREFACEIslam fathered color prejudice and racism. The Arabic Qur'an was the catalyst for the conception, the nurturing, and the religious tending of the ideas behind color racism. Subsequently these negative ideas were exported globally. This is the thesis of this book.The House of Islam, or dar al-Islam in Arabic, is no one particular location. It exists where anyone who has submitted to the Islamic belief system bows in prayer five times daily. Within these invisible temples, those of Islamic faith repeat the ritual statement of witness to their faith: "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of God."In addition to prayer rituals, Islamic practitioners annually must fast during the lunar month of Ramadan. They all are required to financially support their faith, and final...

They Are Coming To Kill Us: A glimpse into the brutality of the War Criminal Bashar al-Assad

The Epic of Kings- Hero Tales of Ancient Persia (Wisehouse Classics - The Authoritative Edition)

by Ferdowsi Tusi, Abuʾl-Qasim

The Shahnameh, also transliterated as Shahnama (“The Book of Kings”), is a long epic poem written by the Persian poet Ferdowsi between c. 977 and 1010 CE and is the national epic of Greater Iran. Consisting of some 50,000 “distichs” or couplets (2-line verses), the Shahnameh is the world's longest epic poem written by a single poet. It tells mainly the mythical and to some extent the historical past of the Persian Empire from the creation of the world until the Islamic conquest of Persia in the 7th century. Today Iran, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and the greater region influenced by the Persian culture (such as Georgia, Armenia, Turkey and Dagestan) celebrate this national epic.The work is of central importance in Persian culture, regarded as a literary masterpiece, and definitive of t...

In this myth, the god Marduk does battle with the dragon Tiamat, and from her body and that of her second-in-command, he creates the world. The story of Atrahasis involves not original creation but re-creation, since this is the myth of the Great Flood that the gods send to wash everything away. The good man Atrahasis is ...

Saudi Arabian Oil Policy and the Iran-Iraq War: What Drives Saudi Arabian Oil Policy?

by Alexander Hay

Saudi Arabian oil reserves are the largest in the world. This fact takes on vital significance in light of the Saudi's financial position. Historically, Saudi Arabia has had rather limited financial needs which has allowed it to vary its production according to Saudi desires rather than by necessity. This has placed Saudi Arabia in the theoretical position of dominant producer within OPEC, with the ability to lower production to support OPEC pricing policy in weak markets, and raise production in order to punish members whose actions go against the wishes of OPEC or Saudi Arabia.

However, Saudi Arabia has often been forced to take actions concerning oil policy which have been decidedly against its long term economic interests, and furthermore, against its long-term political i...

As a result, Muslim scholars find themselves constantly in need to change the cake decoration whenever needed, to update the deception of the simple-minded laymen....
