    Kabul- Agenturen – Iranische Waffen kommen zu den afghanischen Taliban in solch einer Qualität und einem Umfang, dass es der Teheraner Regierung bekannt sein muss, sagte der US Botschafter in Kabul am Dienstag.
    Die Anschuldigung lautet ähnlich wie die, des US Sekretärs für Verteidigung Robert Gates vor einem Monat, die von Teheran als „haltlos und unlogisch“ zurückgewiesen wurde.

  4. Reuters – IAEA to revisit Iranian nuclear site next week
    By Mark Heinrich
    VIENNA  – Iran agreed on Tuesday to let inspectors from the United Nation’s nuclear watchdog revisit its heavy-water reactor site early next week in a push by the U.N. for more transparency in Iran’s disputed nuclear program.
    Diplomats said the accord, which came in a second round of negotiations between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency to clarify the scope of Iran’s atomic activities, was a bid by Tehran to head off more painful U.N. sanctions.
    Olli Heinonen, the IAEA’s deputy director in charge of nuclear safeguards, said Iran agreed to let inspectors return to the Arak heavy-water complex, which is under construction, on Monday or Tuesday — four months after Iran cut off IAEA access there in protest at existing sanctions.

  6. ACHGUT Welcome to the Islamic Republic of Iran! Get stoned!   23.07.2007 
    A top Iranian official Sunday defended the use of execution by stoning after a sentence was carried out on an adulterer, saying the punishment was legal and in line with Iran’s rights commitments.
    Mohammad Javad Larijani, the head of the Iranian judiciary’s human rights committee, said the judiciary supported the principle of stoning after confirmation last week of the stoning sparked international condemnation.
    „Stoning is based on Islamic Sharia law and it is not contrary to any of our international obligations,“ Larijani was quoted as saying by state television’s Web site.
    „We have signed four important treaties on human rights. None of them has any opposition to stoning.

  7. SEGYE Chilling Iranian stories
    In the background of new reports about Iran’s ability to produce its own nuclear centrifuges and while Olli Heinonen, the International Atomic Energy Agency’s No. 2 is making his way to Tehran in order to observe the „transparency“ of its nuclear program, Iran’s security forces appear busy with more pressing matters.
    The regime’s agents broke up a sit-in marking last week’s anniversary of the mass student protest that started on July 9, 1999. Loyal to the Iranian tradition, the police responded to the demonstrations by breaking into a university dormitory and storming the offices of a pro-democracy student group, killing one person and injuring 20. A day earlier, Iran’s judiciary confirmed that a man convicted of adultery has been stoned to death in the province of Qazvin.

I studied in Austria, and I received my degree in journalism and art history 44 years ago, from the University of Vienna. Two months before the Revolution, I left Iran for London.

In 1996, I received a research scholarship from the Wilson Center in Washington, in order to complete a book about women in Iran – a book I had begun writing earlier.

  10. MEMRIBLOGToday’s Editorial From the MEMRI Economic Blog: Profligate Ahmadinejad and the Iranian Economy
    Visit the MEMRI Economic Blog: www.memrieconomicbl og.org
    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is in the habit of promising vast amounts of money, often impulsively, either to fulfill his own populist instincts for the country or to stoke the fires of conflicts regionally. Recently, 50 Iranian economists published a report criticizing the economic policies of Ahmadinejad, arguing that these policies „lack scientific basis.“ The Iranian president is quintessentially profligate.
