Friedrich Engels was born two hundred years ago today. His observations on wage stagnation and the working class have never been more relevant.

"Tragedy on this scale blurs in people’s minds because they don't comprehend atrocities beyond their personal experience. The perpetrators [] & their facilitators like muddy the waters until the news agenda moves on."

's strategic catch22 vis-a-vis : responding risks a wider war involving making rapprochement with impossible & domestic implosion more likely; failing to respond destroys its strategically constructed image of geopolitical strength.

محسن فخری زاده، که دانشمند معرفی می‌شود، سرتیپ سپاه بود. سرلشکر و فرمانده کل همان سپاه چند ماه پیش شخصا دستگاه مستعان ۱۱۰ را به عنوان کرونایاب از راه دور نمایش داد.

کامران متین: جمهوری اسلامی در شرایط دشواری قرار گرفته. اگر جمهوری اسلامی پاسخ ندهد برای آنها تحقیرآمیز خواهد بود و اگر دست به واکنش نظامی بزند سناریوی احتمال درگیری با آمریکا پیش خواهد آمد و در این صورت شانس مذاکره با جو بایدن برای بازگشت به برجام را از دست خواهند داد

This reflexive and principled note from 's Page, particularly the emphasis on opposing 'both domestic authoritarianism and US imperialism', is commendable and a welcome move.

ارس حاجی‌زاده: "بابا دیگر پذیرفته بود که دارد می‌میرد. چشم‌هایش را بسته بوده و با انگشت خونی داشته یک چیزی می‌نوشته. اما چشم‌های کارون از حدقه زده بود بیرون و داشت بابا را نگاه می‌کرد. می‌شد ترس را در صورتش دید. دهانش پر از خون بود."

I'm dyslexic and once, in my capacity as the convenor of an academic working group, wrote to several hundred memebers about a conference and instead of writing 'submit your panels' wrote 'submit your pants' ...

Well, I expressed an opinion that was echoed by many others & in light of that 's 17 editors decided that publishing the paper in its current form was a mistake. You can follow your advice and write a piece about the virtues of Qasem and overturn their view.

So,rejecting a piece inconsistent with normative stance of an outlet which is otherwise well practiced is not censorship at all. It’s upholding its normative principles. This article could be easily published in countless pro-IRI/Assad media outlets & nobody would mind at all

Well, I don't buy your liberal approach to gross error of judgement by an outlet that claims be critical either. As said, your proposed inclusivity approach will/would make sense if Jadaliyya ever published anything remotely similar to this about Chemical Ali or Saddam Hussain👇

Yes, he did. But so did Pinochet, Saddam & so will Trump and the like. Does that make it OK for a critical outlet like Jadaliyya publish quasi-elegies for them saying they were 'articulators of their respective cultures'? I doubt you'd endorse that.

Alas the article is down so I can't refer you to it to explain how the author sought to whitewash the mastermind of massmuder in Syria and one who led an organsiation which gunned down hundreds of unarmed proterstors only a year ago. Did many Iranian mourn ?...👇

The is too important of a platform not to be taken seriously and held to highest standards.

A clarification: first line of my tweet wasn't meant to suggest I wasn't writing 4 Jadaliyya because it's not an 'acadmeic' outlet but to say: 'big tent' notion is relevant to academic journals where normative impartiality is the rule & not to an advocacy outlet like

Neither actually. It was essentially about whether eulogizing Soleimani was consistent with Jadaliyya's values. The issue was fleshed out in a conversation with here: but alas he's deleted his tweets so you'll see my comments only.

I refer you, again, to the opening paragraph, the real subject of the paper. But again my fundamental point is the question in the attached screenshot of my previous tweet. If your answer is 'no' why 'no'? And why the grounds on which you answer 'no' don't apply to this paper?
