    27 FEB. 2024 · The podcast transcript is a summary of a book titled "My life, my Tunisia: Testimony of the Brother-in-law of Salah Karkar, Former Leader of Ennahdha and Former Follower of Shiism" by Massin Kevin Labidi. The book recounts the author's personal experience within a Mahdist Islamist movement in Iran between 1983 and 1990. It sheds light on the rise of the Ayatollahs in Iran and the emergence of a sacred war machine preparing for the return of the Savior, according to mystical Shiite precepts. The author warns about the dangers posed by these Mahdist movements, which rely on sacred texts and aim to impose their vision of the world globally in the name of Islam. The movements share a common objective of dominating the world under the banner of Islam and are willing to cause immense destruction to achieve their goals. The book explores how these movements spread, influence, and seek to destabilize regions while manipulating Muslim populations. It specifically focuses on the infiltration of Shiite Iranian influence within Islamist movements, aiming to become the dominant force everywhere and destroy what they perceive as the satanic Judeo-Christian alliance. The author hopes that his testimony will raise awareness about the insidious threats posed by the Iranian Shiite Ayatollahs and contribute to the fight against them. The book serves as a call to vigilance and highlights the challenges that surround us. Become a supporter of this podcast: https://www.spreaker.com/podcast/my-life-my-tunisia--6095925/support.

  • 07 - Islam and arabization

    28 FEB. 2024 · The podcast transcript discusses the topics of Islam, Arabization, and the consequences of policies promoting these ideologies.

Labidi emphasizes the importance of allowing people to access their heritage, language, and traditions in order to reclaim their identity and contribute to the advancement of humanity.

Massin Kevin Labidi, (birth name: Mohamed Karim Labidi), was born in Tunis on August 4, 1966. Raised in a traditional family environment, he experienced the impact of political Islam, which marked the beginning of a significant transformation. Completing his primary education in Tunisia, he later pursued his secondary studies in France. It was during this period that he embraced Shiism before embarking on journeys to Iran and Syria for theological and historical studies. Subsequently, Labidi became involved in the Iranian Shiite political movement. Eventually freeing himself from this influence, he continued his mystical explorations by traveling to various countries in search of knowledge. Under the guidance of Sufi masters, he furthered his studies and developed his own philosophical belief: "Everyone is the master of oneself; no one is the master of others."
