    Hinrichtungswelle im Iran
    Ahmadinedschad setzt auf Abschreckung
    „Ein massiver Eisenhaken hängt von oben herab, daran ist ein Seil befestigt, dass von einem maskierten Mann geprüft wird, ob es denn auch richtig sitzt. Der Mann ist ein Henker und die Botschaft des Bildes ist, an diesem Seil wird gleich ein Mensch erhängt. Hinrichtungen sind Alltag geworden im Iran. Im vergangenen Jahr wurden 177 Menschen exekutiert. In diesem Jahr bis jetzt mindestens 139…“

  3. TAGESSPIEGEL Steuermann ins Chaos  Nach zwei Jahren Ahmadinedschad leben viele unter der Armutsgrenze, die Unruhe in Iran wächst. Der Präsident, der die Kritik propagandistisch nennt, reagiert mit Repressionspolitik.
    06.08.2007 20:57 Uhr Von Birgit Cerha 
     „Er ist die Zierde der Gerechtigkeit.“ Unter diesem hochtrabenden Motto feiern Anhänger des iranischen Präsidenten den Beginn der zweiten Hälfte der Amtszeit Mahmud Ahmadinedschads. Doch zwei Jahre nachdem der weithin unbekannte islamische Revolutionär, der sich als zutiefst „sauberer“ Mann den armen Massen präsentiert, zum Präsidenten gekürt wurde, nimmt die Zahl jener, die an solch hehre Slogans, an mehr Wohlstand und weniger Korruption glauben, rapide ab.
    Von den Rekordeinkünften der vergangenen zwei Jahre – mehr als 120 Milliarden Dollar an Ölerträgen – spüren die Bürger nichts. Ganz im Gegenteil. Die Lebenskosten stiegen bei einer Inflationsrate von mehr als 20 Prozent rapide an. Zwölf Prozent der Bevölkerung leben nach offizieller Statistik unter der Armutsgrenze. In Wahrheit dürften es viel mehr sein. Nach den vor einem Monat verkündeten Benzinrationierunge n kletterten die Preise unzähliger Güter und Dienstleistungen rasant in die Höhe.

    JAKARTA: Six labor unions affiliated with the International Transport Worker Federation (ITF) have threatened to block Iran’s trade interests in Indonesia in a show of solidarity against the reported detention of an Iranian unionist accused of working as a spy for the West’s interests.

    One of the reasons that the Iranians moved to Los Angeles was a direct result of the revolution in Iran. For years, the economy of the country were heavily relied on the oil exports, in 1976, the Iranian Oil Company was the most profitable company in the world, Iran enjoyed the status of being the „favourite nation“ as far as trading with United State was concerned, thousands of American were actively working in Iran.
    For example the Bell Corporation establish a factory in Isphahan, to manufacture helicopters, as direct result Iranian pilots and engineers ascent to US, to gain experience and educate themselves in technical, and many managerial fields.
    The trade between two countries were expanding rapidly, Iran exporting oil and investing in US economy and in return US was selling weapons, jets, tanks and etc.
    Because, some of these American companies where based in California especially in LA and the Iranian trainees established their base in LA. Furthermore, by late 1975, it became a „Fashion“ to travel to US and in particular to LA, Iran Air had three weekly flights non-stop to LA from Tehran and some

  7. Wiener Zeitung Die Schiiten, zweitgrößte Strömung des Islam, erleben dank der Bestrebungen des Iran eine Renaissance
    Von WZ-Korrespondent Arian Faal
    Wien/Teheran. Es ist eine Ironie des Schicksals der beiden Erzfeinde Iran und USA, dass Teheran mehr Einfluss im Irak zu haben scheint als die von hohen Verlusten geplagte US-Besatzungsmacht. Das Land droht immer mehr im Chaos zu versinken.
    Selbst die größten Optimisten mussten einräumen, dass man von einer demokratischen Stabilisierung des Irak nach den jüngsten Machenschaften der Al-Kaida und den damit in Zusammenhang stehenden Anschlägen und Gegenanschlägen auf Gotteshäuser weiter denn je entfernt ist.
    … denn ohne die Hilfe der Mullahs wird die ohnehin schon sehr schwere Aufgabe, das Pulverfass Naher Osten zu beruhigen, schier unmöglich sein.

  8. ACHGUT Amir Taheri: Domestic Terror in Iran   06.08.2007  
    Seltsam, seltsam: Als Saddam Hussein zum Tode verurteilt wurde, waren alle gegen die Todesstrafe, von amnesty über die Vertreter der Kirchen bis zur PDS. Jetzt regt sich keiner auf, denn im Iran werden keine Promis gehängt sondern kleine Leute. 118 Hinrichtungen in sechs Wochen, das ist ein Rekord, den wir bald im Guiness Buch finden werden. Und die Show geht weiter. Amir Taheri sagt, woher die Mordlust kommt und wohin sie führt:

    1. OPINIONJOURNALDomestic Terror in Iran
      Iran has just carried out the largest wave of executions since 1984.
      BY AMIR TAHERI
      It is early dawn as seven young men are led to the gallows amid shouts of „Allah Akbar“ (Allah is the greatest) from a crowd of bearded men as a handful of women, all in hijab, ululate to a high pitch. A few minutes later, the seven are hanged as a mullah shouts: „Alhamd li-Allah“ (Praise be to Allah).
      The scene was Wednesday in Mashad, Iran’s second most populous city, where a crackdown against „anti-Islam hooligans“ has been under way for weeks.


  9. FR Ausbruch aus der Isolation
    VON MICHAEL LÜDERS
    Für den iranischen Präsidenten Mahmud Ahmadinedschad ist seine Reise nach Algerien politisch von größter Bedeutung. Abgesehen von Syrien hat die iranische Führung keine Verbündeten im arabischen Raum. Die meisten arabischen Führer empfinden Angst und Misstrauen gegenüber Teheran, vor allem in der Golfregion. Zum einen wegen der Sorge, die Islamische Republik strebe nach der Atombombe. Zum anderen wegen der traditionellen Ablehnung der islamischen Mehrheitsströ mung der Sunniten gegen die Schiiten, die vor allem im Iran, im Irak und im Libanon, aber auch in den Golfstaaten leben, als diskriminierte Minderheiten.

  10. OMEDIA – Iran- Where The Truth Lies – Part One
    Iran’s main goal is two pronged: to find a way to put a stop to domestic negative developments, and to neutralize international pressure which might ignite the revival of an uncontrollable anti-mullah opposition at home. There is no better time for the west to act. Part I of II

    «Quae volumus et credimus libenter, et quae sentimus ipsi, reliquos sentire speramus»
    (What we desire we readily believe, and what we ourselves think we expect others to think)
    They Mean It !!!
    Julius Cesar’s quote embodies in one sentence the way we allow ourselves to believe in a „reality“ which isn’t there. The public has a short and selective memory; True, there is an abundance of information available about any imaginable subject, more than we are capable to digest. And true, there are too many „experts“ that have a say in everything we know, its source and meaning. Iran is in cross hair of the politicians, the military and the media since the late 1970s, following the Shah’s fall.

      Part One
      A viable solution with North Korea means more time to take on Iran – As it looks now, North Korea is on the brink of a significant policy change, by accepting and honoring its obligations, deactivating and shutting down its nuclear facilities, allowing American and UN inspection. Obviously, this means that as one major problem which created a continuous headache to policy makers is taken of the international agenda, Iran would become the center of interest, which Teheran wants the least these days. More pressure is expected and more practice measures may be voted by the UN, because growing financial and political pressure on North Korea, reinforced by famine, lack of resources and naval military operations against export of missiles and weapons were effective and North Korea finally gave in. Teheran fears that the same might happen to them unless they take preventive initiative; talks with the US is part of this new initiative.

    The shared concerns include Pakistan’s aid to Al-Qaeda, the military strengthening of the Sunni states in the region, and the spread of Wahhabism in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

  15. MEMRIBLOG In Iran, Criticism Of Iranian Foreign Aid
    There has been criticism in Iran of the scope of $470 million and $25 million in foreign aid promised by the Iranian government to Nicaragua and Lebanon respectively, in light of the grave domestic situation in the country.
    Critics also expressed doubts as to how much the giving would benefit Iran itself.
    The agreement for aid to Lebanon was signed last week by the head of Iranian headquarters in charge of reconstruction projects in Lebanon, Hesaam Khoshnevis, and Lebanese Government Council for Development and Reconstruction president Nabil Al-Jisr.
    The aid to Nicaragua is for the development of a new port, the construction of tens of thousands of homes, and a hydroelectric project.
