wirtschaftsblatt  Nabucco in zehn Jahren auch mit iranischem Gas
In einem Interview mit dem „Handelsblatt“ schließt Nabucco-Geschä ftsführer Reinhard Mitschek nicht aus, dass in Zukunft auch iranisches Gas in die geplante Pipeline eingespeist werden wird. Außerdem zeigt er sich russischem Gas gegenüber offen. 
Die unter Federführung der OMV geplante Gaspipeline „Nabucco“ könnte ab 2017 auch Gas aus dem Iran nach Europa bringen. Das hat der Geschäftsführer des Nabucco-Konsortiums , Reinhard Mitschek, bekräftigt.
„Für die ersten Lieferungen ab 2012 setzen wir auf Aserbaidschan“ , sagte Mitschek in einem Interview mit dem Handelsblatt (Donnerstagsausgabe ).

washingtontimes Jihadist indoctrination in the schools – By Nir Boms
A new U.S. intelligence assessment suggests that Iran may have halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and that its weapons program remains on hold. This revelation has created much consternation in Congress on both sides of the aisle. Indeed, despite the latest estimate, other intelligence reports and Iran’s own statements point to Tehran possibly acquiring a bomb before the end of this decade.

This is why we recently went before Congress to testify about Iranian textbooks.
The content of Iran’s school textbooks, which was recently analyzed by the Center for Monitoring the Impact of Peace, adds an important dimension to the Iran debate. Iranian students from the first grade onward are taught in their educational curriculum that they must fight to bring about a global Islamic victory or accept collective martyrdom. These books paint an alarming picture of a regime that divides the world between „good“ and „evil“ forces that are destined to clash.
