  1. AIPAC: Israel's U.S. Spy Den
    Against The Current vol. 113

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2004
    The socialist Left must remain clear in its avoidance of a conspiratorial view of history. The entire U.S. political spectrum in the aftermath of the 2000 election, and especially since 9/11, has been awash with conspiracy theories. With deep roots in our political culture, ahistorical conspiratorial views of the workings of the world, devoid of any class understanding or a structural and institutional analysis of what we live in, come bubbling to the surface, especially during times of "national crisis."
  2. Anti-Imperialism and the Iranian Revolution
    Fetters of the past, potential for the future

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    The Iranian Revolution, and the anti-imperialist ideology that corresponded to its rise and demise, was indeed a tragedy from the perspective of proletarian revolution; to hold such an ideology today is indeed farcical. It does nothing but bring workers, students, and women’s organizations into an illusory harmony with those who maintain their oppression and exploitation.
  3. The Battle of the Titans
    Who is Pulling the Strings?

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    This is not merely a fight between Israel and the US. Nor is it only a fight between the White House and Congress. It is also a battle between intellectual titans. Intellectual theories can seldom be put to a laboratory test. But this one can. It is happening now. Between Israel and the US a crisis has developed, and it has come into the open.
  4. A Better World: Programme of the Worker-communist Party of Iran 
    Resource Type: Article
    The actual lives and actions of people themselves reveal a deep-seated belief in the possibility and even the certainty of a better future.
  5. Beyond Iraq: The Spreading Crisis
    Against The Current vol. 122

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    The disaster and carnage of the Iraq occupation is the center of a crisis now spreading through the region—to Iran, to Afghanistan and the India-Pakistan subcontinent, and especially to Israel-Palestine—with implications far beyond.
  6. Binge and Hangover
    Against The Current vol. 124

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    The lords of empire set out to show that the United States, not Iran or any other potential rival, will rule the "new" Middle East. Unable to attack Iran directly, however, they instead employed the willing regional branch office of the U.S. military-industrial complex, the Israeli Defense Force, to destroy Lebanon. A war that began as a triumphal imperial binge has ended, at least as of August 14 if the fragile ceasefire holds, with uncertainty and a hangover. (The ceasefire's fate, following the failed Israeli commando raid in the Bekaa Valley, is uncertain as we go to press.)

  10. The Coup
    1953, the CIA, and the Roots of Modern U.S.-Iranian Relations

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2013
    In 1953, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency organized the overthrow of Iran’s democratically elected leader and installed Muhammad Reza Shah Pahlavi in his place. Over the next 26, the U.S. backed the unpopular, authoritarian shah and his secret police; in exchange, it reaped a share of Iran’s oil wealth. The blowback was almost inevitable, as this new and revealing history of the coup and its consequences shows.
  11. The Coup of Coups
    Putting the Shah of Shahs on the Peacock Throne

    Resource Type: Article

  12. The Culture of Terrorism
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1988
    Chomsky argues that the United States elites are dedicated to the rule of force, and that their commitment to violence and lawlessness has to be masked by an ideological system which attempts to control and limit the domestic damage done when the mask occasionally slips.

  17. Grave contradictions of 1979 Iranian Revolution
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1979
    In what proletarian revolution, exactly, was the taking of hostages, and not the rulers, but some fairly low embassy personnel, held to be a revolutionary tactic? Since when has war and revolution been made synonymous? Isn't it about time that Marxist revolutionaries labeled Khomeini's endless repetition of "we are men of war" "looking forward to martyrdom" for what it is by citing Marx, who wrote that Napoleon, the ultimate COUNTER-revolutionary, "substituted permanent war for permanent revolution"?

  20. The Historical Moment That Produced Us 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    As we emerge, hopefully, from this dismal period of rollback, we recall Rosa Luxemburg's remark, shortly before her murder in 1919: "The revolution says: I was, I am, I shall be!" We assert the ongoing reality of communism, "the real movement developing before our eyes," as Marx put it in the Manifesto. Like Hegel's "knights of history," we locate our identities not in any immediacy but in the emerging new universal that must be the cutting edge of the next global offensive.
  21. How not to understand Islamist politics
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
  22. The Illusion of Debate
    Consensus for the People that Matter

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    A recent article in FAIR reviewed the findings of its latest study on the quality of political “debate” being aired on the mainstream networks. It studied the run-up to the military interventions in both Iraq and Syria. Perhaps the arbiters of the study intended to illustrate what we’ve learned since the fraudulent Iraq War of 2003. Well, it appears we’ve learned nothing.

  25. Iran on the Verge of Revolution?
    Against The Current vol. 108

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2004
    Interest in the political situation in Iran has grown noticeably in recent months. In large part, this is due to the far more aggressive policies of the current U.S. administration, which has used the attacks of September 11 as the excuse to intervene directly in the region and bring about “regime change” in accordance with its own longstanding interests.

  28. Iran will be the Scene of a Mass Anti-Islamic Offensive
    Interview with with Radio Hambastegi

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1999
    We have seen in the last 20-25 years the emergence and considerable development of political movements that have organised themselves under the banner of Islam. There are a series of extremely Right-wing, anti-human and violent movements in North Africa, the Middle East and today, in all countries in which the so-called official religion is Islam or which have significant Muslim minorities. Their conduct is primarily in the form of opposition to the freedom of women, women's civil liberties, freedom of expression in the cultural and personal domains and the enforcement of brutal laws and traditions against people, and even killing, beheading, and genocide of people from young children to the elderly.

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2008
    Is the United States a force for democracy? William Blum serves up a forensic overview of U.S. foreign policy spanning sixty years. For those who want the details on the U.S.'s most famous actions (Chile, Cuba, Vietnam, to name a few), and for those who want to learn about lesser-known efforts (France, China, Bolivia, Brazil, for example), this book provides a window on what U.S. foreign policy goals really are. "If you flip over the rock of American foreign policy of the past century, this is what crawls out… invasions … bombings … overthrowing governments … occupations … suppressing movements for social change … assassinating political leaders … perverting elections … manipulating labor unions … manufacturing “news” … death squads … torture … biological warfare … depleted uranium … drug trafficking … mercenaries … It’s not a pretty picture. It’s enough to give imperialism a bad name."

    Bringing Death and Destruction to Muslims

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Americans do not think of themselves or of Israel as terrorist states, but the evidence is complete and overwhelming. Thanks to the power of the Israel Lobby, Americans only know the Israeli side of the story, which is that evil anti-semite Palestinians will not let blameless Israelis live in peace and persist in their unjustified terror attacks on an innocent Israeli state.

    More lies and Misinformation

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    The Iranian nuclear program scenario has been in place for years and is becoming tedious, but we now seem to have arrived at a new plateau of mass hysteria thanks to the 2012 U.S. Presidential campaign. Why?
  35. Media Lies And The War Drive Against Iran
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2009
    Iran's crime is its independence. Having thrown out the US's favourite tyrant, Shah Reza Pahlavi, Iran remains the only resource-rich Muslim state beyond US control. As only Israel has a 'right to exist' in the Middle East, the US goal is to cripple the Islamic Republic. This will allow Israel to divide and dominate the region on Washington's behalf, undeterred by a confident neighbour.

    Resource Type: Article

    Resource Type: Article

  52. The rise of humanism and secularism in Iran
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    The backlash and opposition in Iran is at its essence strongly humanist, secularist and modern. You can see it clearly in the rational, popular, and spontaneous acts and the
    establishment of hundreds of organisations outside government structures and restrictions that are non-religious and purely for the defence of the human being via reliance on human will.

  57. Sex & Iran's Upstoppable Resistance
    Against The Current vol. 145

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    Since Iran's presidential “election” in June 2009 and the protests that followed, the world has caught a partial, albeit highly mediated, glimpse inside that country and its politically active citizenry. The state, frequently misrepresented as a monolith and in neoconservative circles tarred as “Islamo-fascist,” is now more accurately understood as a diverse and fractured set of actors. The reform movement that had ushered in President Khatami suffered defeat by the hardliners with Ahmadenijad’s 2005 election, and hailed by many as dead, has come back to life. To many, it appears unstoppable.

  59. Stuxnet on the Loose
    Security for the One Percent

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    Suspicions that the Stuxnet computer worm was indeed developed by the United States and Israel has once again exposed American exceptionalism. Espionage and sabotage are presented as intolerable criminal transgressions, normally causing our elected officials and military leaders to erupt in fits of righteous indignation. That is, unless the United States is doing the spying and the sabotaging.

    Resource Type: Article

  61. Support the Iranian people, oppose Tehran's clerical fascism
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Tragically, the leadership of the UK and US anti-war movements have been sleep-walking into making the same mistakes over Iran as they made over Iraq. They are silent about the regime's despotism and oppression. Mirroring the neo con indifference to human rights abuses in Iran, they refuse to show solidarity with the Iranian peoples' struggle for secularism, democracy, social justice, human rights and self-determination for national minorities. There is nothing remotely left-wing about this is sad and cruel betrayal. Put bluntly: it is collusion with tyranny.

  64. The Third Camp
    Against U.S. militarism and Islamic terrorism

    Resource Type: Website
    We must stand up with all our power to the US government's and its allies' bullying. We must put an end to the crimes of the opposite pole, i.e. Islamic terrorism. We must help the people of Islam-stricken countries to get rid of the menace of Islamic terrorist states and forces. American militarism and Islamic terrorism have brutalised the world. Neither of them has a solution to the present crisis and its resulting problems. Rather, they are themselves the cause of this crisis and its aggravation. Civilised humanity must rise up against both these poles and the suffering that they have imposed on the world.

  67. The Veil and Violence against Women in Islamist Societies
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    The ongoing battle between the Islamic authorities and women over the veil clearly reveals why it has become a symbol like no other of the violence women face under Islam and why ‘improper’ or ‘bad’ veiling and unveiling have become a symbol of resistance to Islam in power and its violence against women. It is for this very reason that the slogan ‘neither veil nor submission’ has become a rallying cry ever since the regime imposed compulsory veiling on women after expropriating and crushing the revolution to consolidate its rule.
  68. A War Plan Scuttled?
    Against The Current vol. 133

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    As the Bush era draws to a close, there been increasing speculation on whether or not the United States will attack Iran. Spurred by the posturing and rhetoric coming from the White House and a subservient media, much of that discussion has narrowly focused on Iran potential nuclear threat and the character of the current administrations in Washington and Tehran.
  69. We Own the World
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007   Published: 2008
    The whole debate about the Iranian 'interference' in Iraq makes sense only on one assumption, namely, that we own the world. If we own the world, then the only question that can arise is that someone else is interfering in a country we have invaded and occupied.

    Has it already run its course into its opposite, counter-revolution? Or can it be saved and deepened?

    Resource Type: Article

  71. What the Left Should be Learning From Iran 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    There are those on the left who mirror neocon thought: They argue that since Washington is in opposition to it, Iran must therefore be considered a 'good' government, worthy of solidarity. Others argue that if the Iranian state offers social programs and even if it only somewhat resists global capitalism then therefore its violent and authoritarian actions can somehow be justified, forgiven or denied.
  72. What the Media Does Not Say About the Anti-Iran Leaks
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    The media is interested in one and only one subject: advancing the anti-Iran narrative that is advocated by the neoconservatives, the War Party, and the Israel lobby.

    Reading the lead stories on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress about Iran in five prominent US papers – the New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today (all 3/3/15) – what was most striking was what was left out of these articles.
  74. Which side are you on? 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    The women's question has haunted the Islamic regime from the start. The Islamic Republic has been in continuous conflict with the women's liberation movement, which has grown considerably in the past decade in opposition to the misogyny and gender apartheid of the Islamists. Despite brutal assaults on this movement, the regime has not succeeded in silencing it.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    Mainstream media discussions of media balance are limited to a single question: Is the media too critical of powerful interests?
  76. Whom Should We Support in Iran?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    The people we should support in Iran are those who are trying to make Iran more equal, more democratic and more friendly to the principle of solidarity--concern for one another. Since we want the world to move in this direction, we should support those who are pushing it in that direction. The people doing this are working class Iranians.
  77. Why Not Sanctions for Israel?
    Gross Violations of Human Rights

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    The US led the imposition of sanctions against South Africa because of South Africa's apartheid practices. The sanctions forced the white government to hand over political power to the black population. Israel practices a worse form of apartheid than did the white South African government. Yet, Israel maintains that it is 'anti-semitic' to criticize Israel for a practice that the world regards as abhorrent.

    Documents Show NYT and Washington Post Shilling for US Government on Iran Missile "Threat"

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    A key Wikileaks document which should have resulted in stories calling into question the thrust of the Obama administration's ballistic missile defense policy in Europe based on an alleged Iranian missile threat has instead produced a spate of stories buttressing anti-Iran hysteria.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009

  80. Worker-communist Party of Iran
    Resource Type: Website
    To change the world and to create a better one has always been a profound aspiration of people throughout human history. It is true that even the present-day so-called modern world is dominated by fatalistic ideas, religious as well as non- religious, which portray the present plight of humanity as somehow given and inevitable. Nevertheless the actual lives and actions of people themselves reveal a deep-seated belief in the possibility and even the certainty of a better future. The hope that tomorrow's world can be free of today's inequalities, hardships and deprivations, the belief that people can, individually and collectively, influence the shape of the world to come, is a deep-rooted and powerful outlook in society that guides the lives and actions of vast masses of people.
    Worker-communism, first and foremost, belongs here, to the unshakable belief of countless people and successive generations that building a better world and a better future by their own hands is both necessary and possible.
  81. Workers and Revolution in Iran
    The Third World Experience of Workers' Control

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1989
    Industrial workers in Iran played a major role in the overthrow of the Shah. This account of the shuras, or factory councils, they set up throws new light on the Shah's defeat, and the consequent revolutionary impulses Ayatollah Khomeini subsequently crushed so ruthlessly. This and other Third World examples show how uneven capitalist development can create conditions conducive to struggles for workers' control in advanced as well as in backward economies.
  82. World Orders Old and New

Mission Connexions ist gedacht für die Unterstützung von Personen und Gruppen, die sich für Freiheit und Soziale Gerechtigkeit einsetzen. Unser anliegen ist es die Aufzeichnungen vom wirken von Menschen und deren Kampf gegen Unterdrückung und für gesellschaftlichen Wandel zur Verfügung zu stellen. Wir glauben daran, dass je mehr wir über die Konflikte, Siege und Niederlagen der Vergangenheit und über diejenigen die daran Teilgenommen haben wissen, desto besser sind wir dazu in der Lage eine neue Welt zu gestallten. Connexions verfügt sowohl über einen Bestand an Büchern und Dokumenten und ist außerdem bemüht das bereits bestehende digitale Archiv an Dokumenten weiter auszubauen. Wir arbeiten daran einen weiten Themenbereich abzudecken, der eine Vielzahl von unterschiedlichen Ansichten und Herangehensweisen für Gesellschaftlichen Wandel umfasst, alles mit dem Grundsätzlichen anliegen der Unterstützung der Demokratie, Bürgerrechte, freie Meinungsäußerung, Menschenrechen, Säkularität, Gleichheit, wirtschaftlichen Gerechtigkeit, ökologisches Verantwortungsbewusstsein und dem erschaffen und dem erhalt von Gemeinschaft. Wir sind International orientiert, allerdings haben wir als kanadisches Projekt eine besonders große Auswahl an kanadischen Dokumenten und Informationen über kanadische Organisationen.
