LONDON, (CAIS) -- Iran's Cultural Heritage Guards commander Amir-Abbas Ruhi has announced that the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (CHTO) plans to file a lawsuit against the Islamic Regime's Marvdasht public prosecutor for altering his ruling on halting the railroad construction near the ancient site of Naqsh-e Rostam.
I gave a talk at a fundraiser last week. The event itself is worth writing about. The Iranian Federated Women's Club in the San Francisco Bay Area are offering scholarships of up to ten thousand dollars to ten young Iranians of university age. I thought you might be interested in the text of the talk.

Charles Bradlaugh, the 19th century secular philosopher, believes Atheism may naturally immerge from Secularization. Well it may be. But like religion, secularization also has failed to resolve all our worldly problems.

Unfortunately, to many Americans, Iran is represented by President Mahmoud prancing around with his followers who hold vials of uranium. Or else it is known for its fluffy white Persian cats. Sorry to burst the bubbles of cat lovers, but Persian cats do not come from Iran. Trust me, there is no way they could stay that white for any longer than a minute.

Nationalist Turks have not forgiven Mr. Pamuk for an interview with a Swiss magazine in 2005 in which he denounced the mass killings of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire in World War I and the killing of Kurds by Turkey in the 1980s.
Why did Elie, a Holocaust survivor, protest Ahmadinejad's presence in N.Y.?
Wished those who deny Holocaust would have the time to repent,
Never shall I forget those flames which consumed my faith for ever. Never shall I forget that nocturnal silence which deprive me, for all eternity, of the desire to live. Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust, Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself. Never

Our beliefs and ideas make us human, and their quality determines the kind of human we are. We shield and fiercely defend our beliefs and ideas for good reasons:
Keeps Finger on Pulse of Iran from Dubai
DUBAI -- High atop a 1970s-style high- rise building in the heart of this desert city, a group of State Department officials has been setting up offices as part of an ambitious effort by the United States to better monitor Iran and encourage political change there.
What to do about Iran? The question has haunted successive administrations in Washington since the raid on the U.S. embassy in Tehran and the seizure of its diplomats in November 1979.
Caught Between Israel and Iran
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert flew to Washington on Sunday for a meeting with U.S. President George W. Bush. Before leaving Israel, he told reporters that this was the right time to discuss expectations about Washington's Middle East policy during the final two years of the presidency.
Increasingly, it looks as though the United States may attempt to negotiate a grand bargain with Iran. To settle our fundamental differences, Iran would surrender its nuclear-weapons program, stop supporting terrorism, and stop undermining Americas position in Iraq.

Unfortunately I never got to meet Shahla Samii. My contact with her was through e-mail and in connection with a political campaign waged by a few individuals who were hoping against hope and were using whatever last resources at their disposal to speak up against tyranny and injustice in their homeland.

Russian and China indicated that they will not support a draft U.N. resolution imposing tough sanctions on Iran for its refusal to halt its nuclear enrichment program.
For nearly 50 years, worries about a nuclear Middle East centered on Israel. Arab leaders resented the fact that Israel was the only atomic power in the region, a resentment heightened by Americas tacit approval of the situation.

The Mullahs presently ruling the country of Iran are in a fight for their life on two fronts. Of course, you have to look past the narrow prism of the mainstream media to see the serious schisms in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Does the Bush administration seriously mean to give Iran a nuclear bomb? Look carefully at the confidential text of a forthcoming U.N. Security Council resolution, and the answer, it would seem, is yes.
