Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi has won the Oscar for the best foreign language film. Farhadi did not attend this year’s gala in protest at a travel ban by US President Donald Trump that targeted Iranian citizens along with those of six other nations. Iranian engineer and astronaut Anousheh Ansari received the award on behalf of Farhadi. She read a statement by the award-winning director, saying he skipped this year’s Oscars in solidarity with the nations targeted by Trump’s immigration policies. Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has also congratulated on the achievement. He praised the film’s cast and crew in a tweet for the Oscar and stance against the US Muslim ban. Farhadi’s drama recounts the story of a young couple in the backdrop of their performance of Arthur Miller's ‘Death of a Salesman’. ‘The Salesmanwon two awards at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival last May.

" Last month, Farhadi said that he would not take part in the awards, even after receiving special permission to attend. He has announced that Ansari, famed for being the first female space tourist, and Firouz Naderi, a former director of Solar Systems Exploration at NASA, will be his representatives at this year's Academy Awards. "Despite our different religions, nationalities and cultures, we are all citizens of the world. I'm very proud to be a member of this global family. I'm sorry not I'm not able to be here with you but I will be there in spirit," said Farhadi in a recorded message played at the beginning of the film.

Correction: This article previously said Trump would be the first president to skip the dinner. Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter both sat out years, and Ronald Reagan couldn't make it the year he was shot in an assassination attempt. The story has been updated, accordingly. - Amid an ever-escalating war with the media, Donald Trump tweeted Saturday that he wouldn't attend the White House Correspondents Association's annual dinner. SEE ALSO: Hmm, maybe this is why Trump doesn't want to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner The dinner is an opportunity for a comedian to roast the press and the president, and for the president to roast everyone else. Only rarely in the event's 100-year history, have sitting presidents declined to attend. Read more... More about Donald Trump , Business , Media , and Politics

By Brian Whitaker | ( Al-Bab.com ) When it comes to reporting the conflict in Yemen, Fox News is exceptionally bad. Fox has been fooling its viewers for years but now, with Donald Trump installed in the White House, the problem is becoming a more serious. Trump is a devotee of Fox News: it tells him what he wants to hear – about Iranian influence in Yemen, among other things – and he seems to trust it more than he trusts America's intelligence agencies. To make matters worse, though, Trump appears to be watching Fox News without giving it his full attention, presumably because he also has his Twitter feed and presidential business to attend to. As we saw from his reference to an incident in Sweden last week – an imaginary event which he claimed to have heard about on Fox News – he has a tendency to pick up garbled versions of what Fox actually broadcasts.

I clearly observed this among these two communities. Every week I participated in mosque lessons and Islamic study circles among dozens of Salafist women. These communities maintain strict separation between men and women, but I was able to interact with and interview a few men as well. Who are Salafist women? Patrick Denker , CC BY Based on conversations and observation, I learned that they actually avoided politics. They did not attend protests or do advocacy, and in Lyon many did not vote in elections. It is the case that there are Muslim women, including many converts, who actively embrace Salafism. They take up strict forms of veiling and work hard to practice their religion every day. Let’s take Amal, a 22-year-old woman who grew up in a working-class neighborhood in southeastern France. I met her during my time as an ethnographic researcher on Muslim minorities in France.
