Maus (Maus, #2)

Maus  (Maus, #2) | Persepolis; Islamic Revolution | Scoop.it
MAUS was the first half of the tale of survival of the author's parents, charting their desperate progress from prewar Poland Auschwitz. Here is the continuation, in which the father survives the camp and is at last reunited with his wife.
Troy Good's insight:

The novel Maus is both culturally and graphically the same as Persepolis. Both shows a clear depiction of its culture and a time where the government is not on the people's side. Also both tells a story of poeple trying to survive during a time where survival is everything.

Supreme Leader urges MPs to fulfill commitments Shia Updates | Pakistan News | Iran News | Lebanon News | Bahrain News | Saudi Arab News | Shia News | Persepolis; Islamic Revolution | Scoop.it
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei urged members of the Iranian parliament to try to fulfill their heavy responsibilities before the Almightly.
Troy Good's insight:

I feel that the Supreme leaders are trying to change their ways due to the Islamic Revolution. They are encouraging police to do their job based on the law and not their personal feelings. I think that Iran will make many improvements as a country if they use these tactics.

"Torture victim's saga mirrors Iran's history."

Troy Good's insight:

This article tells us about the torture of a man named Houshang Asadi while imprisoned under the Shah dynasty. Asadi talks about the violent treatment each prisoner recieved from the Shah. During the 1970's the Savak Shah police was in charge of the torture in the prison. Asadi says, " Savak's purpose was to extract information, whereas the Islamists want to break you, to insult you (Taylor)." Asadi also experienced harsh humiliation while serving time in the Shah prison. The author of the article tells us that Asadi was forced to eat his own excrements as well as his inmates.

Countries of the World - immigration, geography, economy, government, history, religion, climate, travel, maps, flags

Troy Good's insight:

The article demonstrates the Iranian class structure to be divided into three distinct tiers. The tiers are also known as tabagheh, consisting of wealthy, middle, and low social classes. Although it is perceived to be only three separate tiers, it is much more complex than that. Each is distributed into smaller more specific subgroups within the classes. The social system in Iran is practiced very strongly.

Troy Good's insight:

The Islamic Revolution article clearly depicts the cruel and unjust policies the Shah dynasty enforced among the Iranian country. In this article it tells us how the Shah punished those who opposed their rules. The Shah would imprison religious leaders, censor press, and execute bureaucrats and tribal leaders. It also explains how it took awhile for the Shah to gain complete control of the nation because of foreign troops, but when Premier Mohammad Mosaddeq took control of of a nationalist movement the Shah immediately nationalized the oil companies. Lastly it states that the Shah couldn't have succeeded without the help of the United States.

Troy Good's insight:

The Hijab article reveals the reasons of the wearing of the veil. The Islam religion is based on balance, moderation, and modesty. They emphasize the boundaries whether its social or moral. The veil is worn because the hadith of Sahih Bukhari states that, " My lord agreed with Umar on three things.. (2) And as regards veiling the women... I wish you ordered your wives to cover themselves from men because good and bad ones talk to them (Bukhari, volume 1, book 8, sunnah 395)." The Islamic religion practices a boundary between public and private. Women are required to wear the veil in public but at home they can choose not to. This is because the Islamic religion is heavy on social order. During the 1960's, the wearing of the veil was charged as political and a misunderstanding between the Muslims and Non-Muslims. The veil is now worn by women who still practice the old religion.
