Nothing from the Golden East front

Just a few days ago an unusual event happened. The president and number two of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi, died in a plane crash. This news attracted the attention of many world media and many different analysts and experts ignited controversy about how the future of Iran will be, since the latter was also seen as the successor of Ali Khmanenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran. And not only.

Iran is a non-Arab state in the Middle East that recently increased its potential in geopolitical movements not only in the region but also in the fragile balance of the entire globe. Inevitably bringing its strength back to the attention of the great powers.

Iran, a dictatorial state and harsh in its governance is oriented towards religious ideology already pedantically located on the eastern side of the world. The direction of social-economic interests, but not only political ones, has long since left the West. Therefore, coordination and reaching agreements between his own allies and the Euro-Atlantic ones are almost impossible.

This has made his relationship especially difficult with Israel recently, since last October's attack on a kibbutz against Jewish citizens.

An attack that completely overturned a relationship that was thought to have recovered. Positioning him firmly on the side of Hamas recently, in the conflict between Israel and this radical Islamist wing. Also playing a significant role in the economic relations that this part of the world has with Russia. It's strange to think, but finally Iran, now different than it was perceived, would have a new card in its hands that it could play strongly in a troubled world that is changing so quickly.

But what does history teach us about this country? How far back do we have to go back in time to understand the ideology of this country? How did he manage to shape himself into a world power and does he find himself in these positions by chance or was it expected based on the foundation of his history?

Iran enjoys one of the richest historical lineages of any modern state stretching back several thousand years. This history can be broadly divided into three eras: the ancient pre-Islamic period, the Islamic era, and the modern era. Defined then with what was called the era of western modernity, which was marked there around the year 1800, that is, c. the 19th.

And as in any case, to go to the genesis, historical facts from the period of antiquity give us the right to say that this civilization will survive time. Therefore, over the centuries, this civilization would not only not die out, but on the contrary, it would know a wide spread in the Asian region and beyond.
In the 7th century, a new power rose in the Arabian Peninsula – Islam, a religion that transformed the Iranian people in mentality and worldview although it was deeply rooted in the political and religious culture of the deep heritage of ancient Iran.

Coming to modern times, where challenges and ideologies cemented over the centuries have made Iran a player as strong as it is fragile.

Just referring to this panorama we can say with conviction as the only thing that intrigues us after that unusual event that happened in the mountains of Azerbaijan, that air accident where President Raisi lost his life, that of course there will be no change of course at all from his escape. The regime established for decades will continue to follow the same principles and ideologies proving once again that anyone can be replaced.

Even the Supreme Leader himself.

We already have two parties in Iran; the regime and the people. Two parties who deeply live in two different worlds, where neither of them cares for the other while the economic picture keeps getting worse and worse.

Therefore, the discovery of the truth of that accident will remain for humanity an enigma filled with mystery.

This is the reason why the cause of the air accident of the country's president is less than news compared to what the world wants to hear from Iran.

Something new from this radical eastern front.
