    1. Und alles kam, wie es kommen musste…
      KSTA- Brecht und Peymann in Teheran – VON FARSHID MOTAHARI,
      Teheran – Bertolt Brecht ist im Iran einer der beliebtesten deutschsprachigen Schriftsteller. Fast alle seiner Dramen sind ins Persische übersetzt worden, nach Expertenmeinung in sehr guter Qualität. 
       
       
      Und der Regisseur und Intendant des Berliner Ensembles, Claus Peymann, genießt nicht nur in der iranischen Theaterszene, sondern auch unter Akademikern an Hochschulen ein hohes Ansehen. So gab es am Dienstag abend in Teheran nach der lange ausverkauften und viel beachteten Premiere von Peymanns Inszenierung des Brecht Stücks «Mutter Courage und ihre Kinder» auch minutenlangen Beifall für das Berliner Ensemble. Es ist bereits das zweite Gastspiel des Theaters bei dem vom Dramatic Arts Center of Iran veranstalteten Festival. Im Januar 2002 gastierte Peymann dort mit Shakespeares «Richard II.». 
       
       
      «Brecht und Peymann live in Teheran, das war schon ein Highlight für uns alle», sagte der iranische Theaterregisseur Mohsen Hosseini nach der Vorstellung. Die auch in Deutschland gefeierte Inszenierung von 2005 stellt Carmen-Maja Antoni als Mutter Courage in den Mittelpunkt – sie stellt eine Frau dar, die in einer feindlichen Umgebung ums Überleben kämpft und dabei das Maß für die Menschlichkeit verliert. «Das Problem ist nur, dass wir nach solch einer Vorstellung eine Zeit lang brauchen, uns wieder an das Niveau unseres hiesigen Theaters zu gewöhnen», zeigte sich auch der 25- jährige Theaterstudent Hossein beeindruckt.

  6. POLITICALMAVENS- The facts, ma’am, just the facts
    Underneath the homes and ragged streets of the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan, lie the remnants of a glorious Jewish past: coins, seals, a water tunnel hewn by a Judean king 2,700 years ago, a road that led to a biblical Temple,†writes Associated Press writer Matti Friedman.
    While Israel says the archeological work helps it reconnect with its ancient heritage, some Palestinians contend the unearthing of these treasures is a political weapon to undermine their own links to Jerusalem, Friedman writes.
    Arab/Muslim interests have long tried to prevent excavation of this and other historic sites. Often, they complain the work endangers buildings or are an attempt by Israel to grab land. But the real motivation is simpler and more sinister than that.

  9. MEMRI IRANIAN MEDIA BLOG - Iranian Reactions To Mughniya Assassination  
     
    In a message of condolence to Hizbullah secretary-general Hassan Nasrallah, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei expressed his mourning over the loss of senior Hizbullah official Imad Mughniya, and noted that his life and death would lay a path and serve as an example for many young people. He added that the assassination would double the resistance against the oppressors, i.e. the U.S. and Israel. Syrian Ambassador to Iran Ahmad Mousavi wrote that the assassination would severely shake the Zionist regime and would cost it dearly. Iranian Parliamentary National Security and Foreign Policy Committee member Reza Talai Nik said that the assassination was a great loss to Hizbullah but that it would not detract from its strength or from its determination to continue the armed struggle. The Iranian website Aftab stated that it was impossible to ignore the intelligence and security collaborastion of some Arab countries in the assassination. He said that the collaboration had come about because Israel’s loss in the 2006 war was also a loss for the Arab allies of the U.S. and Israel. According to Lebanese sources, the car bombing killed also one of Mughniya’s entourage and wounded two others, whose names were not given.
