    Sollte der Dollar weiter an Wert verlieren und sich die politischen Spannungen verschärfen, seien bis zu 500 Dollar in den nächsten Jahren denkbar, sagte Mohammed Ali Chatibi in einem am Samstag veröffentlichten Interview einer iranischen Wochenzeitung. Er wurde dazu befragt, wie er Einschätzungen bewerte, nach denen der Ölpreis in den kommenden zwei bis drei Jahren auf 200 Dollar je Fass klettern könnte.
    Zuletzt war der Ölpreis wieder deutlich auf um die 125 Dollar zurückgegangen, nachdem er erst vor kurzem auf über 147 Dollar schoss.

  7. jesus.ch – Irans antisemitische Hetze im Fernsehen
    Teheran. Der Iran verbindet seit Jahren antisemitische Hetze mit Vernichtungsdrohungen gegen Israel. Ein beliebtes Propagandamittel sind dabei unter anderem die seit mehr als einem Jahrhundert kursierenden «Protokolle der Weisen von Zion», eine Verschwörungstheorie über die vermeintliche jüdische Weltverschwörung, die in und von der Islamischen Republik freizügig übersetzt, gedruckt und verteilt wird.
    Der staatliche Nachrichtensender IRINN hat nun in den vergangenen beiden Monaten eine Fernsehserie ausgestrahlt, die unter dem Titel «Das Geheimnis von Armageddon» in antisemitischer, antichristlicher und antiamerikanischer Weise den Endkampf zwischen den guten und den bösen Mächten thematisiert. Die Serie enthält zahlreiche Interviews von iranischen «Experten», die sich immer wieder auf die «Protokolle der Weisen von Zion» berufen. In der Episode vom 11. Mai erklärt etwa der iranische Dozent Ali-Reza Karimi: «Es ist inzwischen allgemein bekannt, dass die ‚Protokolle der Weisen von Zion‘ die Pläne und die Politik des Ältestenrats der Sekte beinhalten, deren Ziel die Eroberung der Welt und die Errichtung einer globalen jüdischen Regierung sind, wie es 1897 in Basel auf dem ersten Zionistenkongress in Basel besprochen worden war.»

    Austrian coalition aims to thwart deal for Iran oil pipeline to Europe – STEPHANIE RUBENSTEIN 
    Austria has reached the eleventh hour to act against an oil and gas deal with Iran to ensure independence from the Iranian regime and its nuclear ambitions, Simone Hartmann, a founder of the Austrian Stop the Bomb coalition, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.
    The Austrian company OWV Group, the largest provider of oil and gas in central Europe, is currently in the midst of a deal with Iran. OWV is a public company, but the Austrian government owns about 32 percent of the shares.
    Since 2002, trade between Austria and Iran has doubled, with military deals accounting for 11%, according to Hartmann.
    „Europe has to deal with [Iran] now,“ she said.

    Coming from Iranian Vice President Gholam Reza Aghazadeh, the announcement compounded international skepticism about denting Teheran’s nuclear defiance just five days after Teheran stonewalled demands from six world powers to suspend activities that can produce the fissile core of warheads.“

    1. JP Obama on Iran, Syria, J’lem and settlements – full interview
      Two months ago in the Oval Office, President George W. Bush, coming to the end of a two-term presidency and presumably as expert on Israeli-Palestinian policy as he is ever going to be, was accompanied by a team of no fewer than five advisers and spokespeople during a 40-minute interview with this writer and three other Israeli journalists.

      In March, on his whirlwind visit to Israel, Republican presidential nominee John McCain, one of whose primary strengths is said to be his intimate grasp of foreign affairs, chose to bring along Sen. Joe Lieberman to the interview our diplomatic correspondent Herb Keinon and I conducted with him, looked to Lieberman several times for reassurance on his answers and seemed a little flummoxed by a question relating to the nuances of settlement construction.
      On Wednesday evening, toward the end of his packed one-day visit here, Barack Obama, the Democratic senator who is leading the race for the White House and who lacks long years of foreign policy involvement, spoke to The Jerusalem Post with only a single aide in his King David Hotel room, and that aide’s sole contribution to the conversation was to suggest that the candidate and I switch seats so that our photographer would get better lighting for his pictures.

    Obama to PM: Iran action legitimate only if talks fail –
    Near the close of his visit to Israel on Wednesday, Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama met with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. A major topic of their long conversation was Obama’s declared willingness to engage in direct dialogue with Tehran.
    Obama reportedly told Olmert that he is interested in meeting the Iranians in order to issue clear ultimatums. „If after that, they still show no willingness to change their nuclear policy, then any action against them would be legitimate,“ an Israeli source quoted him as saying.
    Obama said it is clear that the Iranian nuclear issue would be a top priority for him as president, but said that as part of the diplomatic effort to end Tehran’s enrichment program, the Iranians must be given an opportunity to change.

    Iran convoy attacked reportedly while taking arms to Hezbollah

    Iran convoy attacked reportedly while taking arms to Hezbollah 
    An Iranian military convoy attacked in a mysterious explosion last week was delivering a load of military equipment to the Hezbollah militant group at the time of the blast, western officials told the London Daily Telegraph in a report published on Friday.
    Details of the explosion, which occurred near a Revolutionary Guards‘ munitions warehouse in the Tehran suburb of Khavarshahar and left 15 people dead, were blacked out even in Iranian media.
    Western officials told the Telegraph that the Revolutionary Guards had launched an investigation into the cause mystery blast, which apparently took place on July 19. „This was a massive explosion that was heard throughout Tehran,“ an official told the Telegraph. „Even though lots of people were killed, the Revolutionary Guards are trying to conceal what really happened.“

    According to the AFP, Rafsanjani admonished Western powers to „not try to find fault,“ but to „be patient and let wise people sit down and talk.“ He made his statements in a sermon after Friday prayers, and his speech was broadcast on Iran’s state radio.
    „Iran is ready to go there and talk – say whatever you have to say [during negotiations],“ Rafsanjani declared.
    „Now that negotiations are supposed to be held, why are you setting deadlines and giving ultimatums?“ the head of two of the top clerical bodies in Iran asked.

  13. Associated Press Iran ends cooperation with U.N. nuclear probe – George Jahn
    VIENNA, Austria —Iran signaled yesterday that it will no longer cooperate with U.N. experts probing for signs of clandestine nuclear weapons work, confirming the investigation is at a dead end a year after it began.
    The announcement from Vice President Gholam Aghazadeh of Iran compounded skepticism about denting Tehran’s nuclear defiance, just five days after Tehran stonewalled demands from six world powers that it halt activities capable of producing the fissile core of warheads.

  14. American Jewish Committee (press release) – AJC: World Must Not Allow Nightmare of Nuclear Iran
    July 25, 2008 – New York – The American Jewish Committee today expressed alarm over reports that Iran is terminating its cooperation with UN inspectors investigating evidence of clandestine Iranian nuclear weapons activity.
    This development comes only days after six world powers, including the United States, offered Iran a generous package of incentives if it freezes—and ultimately suspends—its nuclear activities. Yesterday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad signaled his country’s likely rejection of that offer, reaffirming Tehran’s defiant resolve to develop its nuclear capability.
    „Iran’s apparent decision to bar UN inspectors of its long-illicit nuclear program can have only one meaning – that Tehran intends to advance in secret its pursuit of dangerous nuclear technology,“ said AJC Executive Director David A. Harris. „If Iran continues on this reckless course, the international community has no choice but to apply the most comprehensive sanctions, intensifying the message to Tehran that its outlaw defiance will not be tolerated.“

  15. RIA Novosti  Iran: Vorerst kein SOZ-Beitritt
    DUSCHANBE, 25. Juli . Die Aufnahme Irans in die Shanghaier Organisation für Zusammenarbeit (SOZ) ist beim Außenministertreffen der Mitgliedsländer in Duschanbe nicht erörtert worden.
    „Iran kann kein assoziiertes Mitglied sein, denn die SOZ sieht einen solchen Status nicht vor. Es gibt aber einen Beobachterstatus und Iran ist Beobachter bei der SOZ“, sagte der russische Außenminister Sergej Lawrow in einer Pressekonferenz.
    Ursprünglich wollten die SOZ-Außenminister bei dem Treffen in Tadschikistan besprechen, ob das seit zwei Jahren geltende Moratorium für die Aufnahme neuer Mitglieder aufgehoben werden soll.
    Wie aber aus russischen Diplomatenkreisen bekannt wurde, fehlen der Organisation vorerst klare Aufnahme-Kriterien.
    Zuvor hatten Pakistan und Iran den SOZ-Beitritt beantragt.

  16. ACHGUT Ahmadinejads willige Helfer 
    Wenn Sie zu Ihrem Nachbarn sagen: „Ich bringe dich um!“, dann wird er das möglicherweise als Bedrohung empfinden. Wenn Sie aber zu ihm sagen „Du bist bald tot, du Drecksau!“, dann wird er das wahrscheinlich als eine zärtliche Zuwendung empfinden. Vorausgesetzt, er hat nicht alle Tassen im Schrank. Sie dagegen können darauf verweisen, dass sie ihm nicht gedroht, sondern nur etwas vorausgesagt haben, das bald passieren wird, weil der Nachbar es so gewollt hat.
    Das ist so etwa die logische Substanz einer Debatte, die von ein paar deutschen Ahmadeinejad-Groupies, Nationalbolschewiken, progressiven Junganzis und lobotomierten „Experten“ über die Frage vom Zaun gebrochen wurde, was Ahmadinejad unter der Parole „A World without Zionism“ versteht. Am Rande geht es auch darum, wie man metaphorische Floskeln richtig übersetzt: wörtlich oder sinnadäquat. Und so ist die Mär in die Welt gekommen, Ahmadinejad habe Israel nie mit Vernichtung gedroht, er habe nie gesagt, Israel müsse von der Landkarte ausradiert werden, sondern nur, das zionistische Besatzungsregime müsse von den Seiten der Zeit verschwinden.

  17. MEMRI IRANIAN MEDIA BLOGIran Friday Sermon: Iran Won’t Accept Ultimatum From West
    Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani  
    In his Friday sermon at the Tehran University campus, Tehran interim prayer leader Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani stated that Iran would not accept an ultimatum from the West in its talks about Iran’s nuclear program. He said, „We have finally agreed to sit down and negotiate, then what is this about issuing a deadline and ultimatum?…Every time the situation (of the nuclear dispute) is about to get better, these Western hardliners and radicals begin diverting attention by various propaganda ploys. This approach shows that some powers cannot see peace in the region.“
    Rafsanjani, who is also a former Iranian president and chairman of Iran’s Expediency Council, was referring to the six-party (U.K., U.S., China, France, Russia, and Germany) talks held last week in Geneva on Iran’s nuclear program, during which Western delegates gave Iran two weeks to either accept or suspend uranium enrichment in return for Western incentives or sanctions.
    Rafsanjani told worshippers, „We have agreed to talk (with the world powers) on the issue for finding a settlement (in the nuclear dispute) and are indeed hopeful to do so… But again, they (world powers) have come up with ultimatums, timetables, and even threats, which are unacceptable to Iran.“
    He called the situation a demonstration of Iran’s innocence and of bullying by the West, saying, „Acquiring peaceful nuclear technology is first of all an absolute and undeniable right that has been accorded to Iran and all countries based on the international treaties endorsed by the International Atomic Energy Agency.“ He added that the capability that Iranians have gained in the nuclear domain is the result of 30 years of their endeavors without seeking foreign assistance, and warned that the world bullying powers were now trying to deprive the Iranian nation of the absolute right through making mischief and through issuing threats and intimidation.
    He added, „U.S. and Israeli officials must learn that an ultimatum will not help the nuclear standoff (between Iran and the West.“
    Rafsanjani also criticized the U.S.’s role in the Persian Gulf, stating, „Unfortunately, tough and extremist claims by officials of the U.S. and of the usurper regime of Israel pose problems in the way, and the Americans launch maneuvers for controlling the Strait of Hormuz.“ He continued, „It is clear that a trend is now underway of trying to obstruct efforts for the restoration of calm and security in the region.“

  19. MEMRI IRANIAN MEDIA BLOG – Iranian VP: Iran-West Nuclear Talks Will Help Solve Middle East Problems
    Iranian Vice President Gholam-Reza Aqazadeh said in Vienna yesterday that continued talks between Iran and the West on Iran’s nuclear program can be a means for settling the Middle East’s problems, on issues ranging from Iraq to oil prices.
    Speaking to reporters after talks with International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohammed ElBaradei, Aqazadeh, who also heads Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, said, „If the talks continue, solutions can be found for many problems like Iraq, Lebanon or the fuel prices.“
    Aqazadeh also said that talks between Iran and the G7 are expected to resume in the near future, and that the two sides believe that they are to enter a new phase of serious talks which requires collective collaboration. He added that the G7 „have provided us with ’non-paper‘ proposal in Geneva talks which takes time to be replied to.“

  20. MEMRI IRANIAN MEDIA BLOG – Ahmadinejad Bans Evening Edition Of Iranian Paper

    The government of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has banned the evening edition of the Iranian daily Hamshahri, on charges of publishing false news.
    The paper is close to Tehran Mayor Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf.
    According to Iran’s press supervisory board, the paper portrayed the country’s economic situation as unstable, after reporting on increased economic disputes within the government.
    The Iranian website Aftab called the move „a second yellow card“ for Qalibaf. In June 2008 the government closed down a different paper close to him, Tehran Emrooz. (see

  21. MEMRI IRANIAN MEDIA BLOG – Ahmadinejad: Martyrs‘ Path Known By All Nations As Only Path To Salvation; Iran in Economic Struggle With Enemies
    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said July 23 that today all the „martyrs‘ aspirations“ are „being realized,“ and that „the „hegemonic system is on the verge of annihilation.“
    Ahmadinejad was speaking to a group of families of martyrs in Yasouj, Kohgilouyeh-Boyer Ahmad province.
    He added that the path trodden by martyrs is known by all nations as the only path to salvation, dignity and glory, and that Iran was proud of its 200,000 martyred citizens.
    Addressing the great powers, he said, „The Iranian nation invites you to make recourse to the path of purity and justice of the divine prophets. This is good for all, especially for you.“ He then warned the West, „If you wish to use the language of force and threat with the Iranian nation, our nation will stand united and deal a heavy blow to the ill-wishers of the system.“
    He said that the world is fed up with the ongoing international conditions and await a ray of hope.
    In another speech in Yasouj, Ahmadinejad said that Iran is engaged in economic struggle with its „enemies and their followers“: „Enemies and some of their agents inside the country made their utmost efforts since two years ago focusing particularly on economic issues as they thought they could topple the Iranian government, revolution and nation.“
    He added, „This is wishful thinking… With the help of God, the Islamic Revolution will thwart all conspiracies.“
