Top award for cowardice? Quite competitive, but goes to 12 Republican California House members who voted for tax bill that sought to politically punish their state thru higher taxes, cuts in health & education.

. یکی از دلایل ناکامی فلسطینیها ظرف ۷۰سال گذشته اختلافات کشورهای اسلامی بوده. در ماجرای اخیر به عنوان مثال، ما ایرانیان بیش از آن که به فکر یاری فلسطینیها باشیم، در پی تسویه حساب با سعودیها هستیم. تلاش میکنیم نشان دهیم آنها و خط سازش مقصر بودهاند و در مقابل، موضعِ رادیکالِ ایرانِ انقلابی، درست و بر حق. #زیباکلام_توییتر #زیباکلام_توئیتر #زیباکلام #صادق_زیباکلام #تولد_اسراییل #تولد_اسرائیل #کتاب_تولد_اسرائیل #کتاب_تولد_اسراییل #فلسطین #اسرائیل #اورشلیم #اسراییل #اسرائیل_باید_نابود_شود #اسرائیل_باید_از_بین_برودA post shared by صادق زیباکلام (@zibakalamsadegh) on
