On October 30, in Tehran’s Allameh University which students were gathered inside and outside of faculty building and taking part in an anti-government protest, they denounced the recent government-orchestrated crackdown taking place inside Iranian universities and called on the authorities to free fellow students who had been arrested during the past several months.
Students chanted "Death to the dictator" and asked for expelling Basiji militants (part of IRGC) from universities. Twenty students were arrested during rally.
On October 14, Baghi responded to a summons to appear before an interrogator at Branch 1 of the Security Unit of the General and Revolutionary Public Prosecutor’s Office. The court charged him with “propaganda against the system” and “publishing secret government documents” for his activities as president of the Society for the Defense of Prisoners’ Rights, a nongovernmental organization that he founded in 2003.
“The Iranian government should applaud Baghi for his efforts on behalf of prisoners’ rights, not arrest him,” said Joe Stork, Middle East and North Africa deputy director at Human Rights Watch. Iranian authorities should immediately release prominent human rights defender Emadeddin Baghi and drop the politically motivated charges against him, Human Rights Watch said today.

On a tour in Middle East raising breast cancer awareness, first lady put on a traditional hijab given to her by a Saudi doctor. As we know, based on rules in some countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia, women should cover their hair and body. No matter where are you from, Westerner or Easterner, Islam believer or atheist, women should cover their hair.
In Iran ayatollahs and muslim advocates say western women cover their hair in our country out of respect! which is not true, it is out of fear! Extremist Muslims in these countries was getting joy even from this little moment that Laura covered her hair!

Iranian army students created a sword and stab the US flag! We, people in Iran are tired of all this mullah's show off. Unfortunately they run bunch of people who don't think and just follow their religious leader so here we are!
I am sure if the US hits some part of Iran they will run all the way.

London, Oct. 14 - A Christian couple were flogged in Iran for participating in an “underground Church”, an Iranian Christian group said in a report on its website earlier this week.
The unnamed couple were arrested on September 21, 2005, the report said, adding that a Revolutionary Court reviewed their case in July 2007.
Even though the couple had decided to marry seven years ago, the country’s marriage laws - which prohibit the union of ex-Muslims and members of other religious minorities – prevented them from obtaining a certificate of marriage.
The report said that the woman was born a Christian in an Assyrian-Iranian family and the man was a convert to Christianity prior to getting married.
The court ruled that both the man and the woman were Mortad, a description of someone who has committed apostasy by leaving Islam.

Islamic Republic of Iran is shutting down some bookstores. In Iran some bookstores provide extra space to sit down and have a cup of coffee/tea, read the book, discuss with others and stuff like that. Right now, Islamic Republic has ordered to this type of bookstores to shutdown their business.
Islamic Republic has problem with any facility that people can come close to each other and discuss. Well, most of the time, book readers usually come together in these places so it is highly expected that political or religious discussions were going on which Islamic Republic is totally against any freedom of expression specially about religion and politics.
This manoeuvres is another form of spreading fear between people. We know that Iranian police is one of the most corrupted police in the world so to speak they don't provide security and peace of mind for people but for Islamic regime.

Somebody ask a question from Ayatollah (a high ranking title given to Shiite clerics) Rouhani, somebody asked “what is the situation of the person who poured the acid over the face and clothes of women without Hijab (Islamic dress code)? Is this person responsible for what he has done or just because he/she’s act is based on God divine, he’s not responsible?” Ayatalloh Rouhani answered “If you had permission from a religious jurisprudence then you are not responsible for the action.
Mohsen Namjoo is a new phenomenon in Iranian music; he mixed eastern-Iranian genre with western genre altogether with his unique voice makes it quite interesting. This video is awesome; although Namjoo needs to practice a little bit more on his voice. I think.

Lyrics are from Hafiz a Persian mystic and poet. Following translation to English is from Shahriar Shahriari:
Don’t let your hair with the wind blow,
Else to the wind, caution I’ll throw.
Don’t let foundations elegantly grow,
Else my foundation will dissolve and go.
Choose where you bestow thy grace,
Else I’ll wallow in disgrace.
When you are present in every place,
Every place, my protests will face.
The locks of your hair are curled like a chain,
Enslaved to those locks, in chain I remain.
When with your curls you entertain,
Your curls will only drive me insane.
Strangers do not befriend,
Else I might be lost in the trend.
Let not my rivals on you depend,
This makes me sad, and will offend.
Let your face color, your cheeks blush,
Your beauty, the rose bud, aside brush;
Let your stature rise up tall and lush,
And the tallest cedars simply crush.
Don’t become every room’s candle flame,
Else my flames of jealousy can’t tame.
Don’t treat every people the same,
So that you may not forget my name.
Don’t become known to all in this town,
Else I’ll find the ocean, myself drown.
Don’t keep me distant with your frown,
Else I’ll tear to threads my shirt and gown.
Have mercy upon me and compassion,
Else hear the infamy of my passion.
Hafiz will embrace your oppression,
Was freed since enslaved in this fashion.

Beside whole report which is a fact about Iranian young generation who are going under operation for the sake of better look.
At (2:33) doctor said "I think so God like this"! Oh man! so does he suggest that people do nose job because of God?! I am speechless!
- Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali khamenei after meeting with Putin is decided to halt work that can be used to make fuel for power plants. So khamenei needed to change the negotiator who had full support of him which it prevents negative points in his score then he won’t take blame for halting nuclear power process. You should know that they have tied nuclear power technology with nation pride which halting means taking blame.
- There is a conflict between khamenei and Larijani at the meantime.
Personally, I don’t see conflict between Ahmadinejad’s government and Larijani. It’s just media that tries to push hard this idea.

I am just lagging behind of news these days, sorry for that.
Vladimir Putin visit to Iran had some media frenzy news like following item:
- He issued a veiled warning against any attack on Iran.
- He also suggested Moscow and Tehran should have a veto on Western plans for new pipelines to carry oil and natural gas from the Caspian Sea, using routes that would bypass Russian soil and break the Kremlin's monopoly on energy deliveries from the region.
- He refused to set a date for completing Iran's first nuclear reactor, trying to avoid an outright show of support for Iran's defiance over its nuclear program.
Putin also boosted Iranian national pride describing Iran as a “World Power” and referring to the might of the ancient Persian Empire! Honesty, I should admit Putin is a great salesman. I think so he ridiculed Iranians. What kind of world power is Iran? my dear Iranian friends, please don't take it seriously this non-sense, we know Iran is nothing but a total mess at the moment.
All above was a show off however two following important items have left alone:
- "We are saying that no (Caspian) nations should offer their territory to outside powers for aggression or any military action against any of the Caspian states," Putin said.
- "I only gave promises to my mom when I was a small boy," Putin snapped when Iranian reporters prodded him to promise a quick launch.
The clear message was mullah’s regime can’t lean on Putin anymore however Putin doesn’t like to see Caspian nations territory use by world powers other than himself. Well, a persistent buyer could ask for a price? Right?
News taken from AP
Don’t fool yourself and even doubt that he says truth! NO!
We, Persians, Iranians that have lived under Islamic Republic of Iran in Iran we know that Ahmadinejad is just a puppet of mullahs dictatorship regime and they want to have nukes for their own good. It will be an assurance for their endless Islamic Fascist dictatorship!

A poster in front of an Iranian government office says “Israel should be wiped out of the world”. it is developed by Basij a volunteer based Iranian paramilitary force under supervision of Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). I don’t think so Ahmadinejad could justify this one either.
It’s army’s clergies conference!! Probably you would ask yourself, what are they doing in army? Well, their main responsibility is brainwashing soldiers and makes them ready to commit suicide with bombs, kill people for Islam, and relax them about death in war because they will go to heaven because they are martyr. So don’t worry about it! While clergies are making mess on the earth, you should hurry up to go to heaven!

No wonder why mullahs in Iran always pray that democrats take power in the US. I hope that CIA release Islamic Republic of Iran’s revolution documents then we will know which party was involved to fake a revolution in Iran.
Repressive States (a) feign an interest in freedom of expression, and concoct religious necessities to trump rights. Speakers: Pakistan on behalf of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), Egypt, Malaysia, Syria, Iran.

Iran's supreme leader said the country's political establishment should be open to criticism, following a rare protest against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, state radio reported on Wednesday.
"We should be wary of the day when our young people in universities do not have the motivation to raise questions, issues and demands," Ali Khamenei told a group of students and political activists on Tuesday night.
"If sometimes we have said there should be no opposition to the country's officials, this does not mean there should be no criticism," Khamenei said. "This applies to the leadership too."
Khamenei's comments came two days after a group of students staged a protest against the hardline Ahmadinejad at Tehran University, calling him a "dictator" over a crackdown against student activists.
And even the supreme leader voiced criticism of the current government.
"I have supported (previous) governments. I support this government too. This also does not mean that I approve of every detail of the work that is being done," Khameini said.
Criticism of the authority of the supreme leader -- who has the final word on all matters of state in the Islamic republic -- is a punishable crime. AFP
Guess what? Supreme leader and his authority is our problem! We don't need supreme leader, we can lead ourselves. We do have problems with politician mullahs! The separation of state and religion is mandatory in Iran. We want a free referendum under control of UN to choose a new government! There is no need any more for you, mullahs and Islamic Republic.
The students yelled at Ahmadinejad “Death to dictator” but we know and you know that Ahmadinejad is puppet of yours and whole Islamic Republic mafia around you. We are sick and tired of you, being a leader. Step up like a man and confess to your crimes.
Ahmadinejad’s speech in Tehran University was lost in the hell of students protest news. He addressed to Bush speech about Iran nuclear issue; he said “There is no use in his approach. There is nothing but threat. Whatever he says is just a threat. There is no friendship invitation”.
Hamilton is the director of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., and director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University has a plan for dealing with Iran.
In following article his addressing a plan to deal with Iran, I will write my comments very soon.
A plan to deal with Iran by Lee Hamilton
Our major objective in the present dispute with Iran is singular and clear: Prevent it from developing nuclear weapons.
There are three broad policy options: acquiescence, military action and negotiation.
We could accept a nuclear Iran. But it is not in America's, the Middle East's, or the world's interest to tolerate further nuclear proliferation.
We could attack Iran, with a limited strike on their nuclear facilities or a "shock-and-awe" type operation seeking regime change.
But intelligence estimates on Iran's proximity to the bomb vary from two to eight years, so we have time to pursue non-military ventures. A limited attack would likely miss secret or underground bases, not to mention the retaliation it would inspire against U.S. troops and interests in Iraq, the oil-rich Gulf and elsewhere. In the end, we cannot obliterate Iranian nuclear knowledge with a bomb.
As for regime change, we have our hands full already in Iraq and Afghanistan. And advocates leave some key questions unanswered: Would regime change achieve our non-proliferation goals? What specific steps are we prepared to take and what sacrifices are we willing to make in pursuit of deposing the mullahs?
That leaves negotiation, which emphasizes changing certain Iranian policies, not the regime itself. This is the most promising but most complex policy, full of potential pitfalls.
Currently, we are sending mixed messages that obfuscate our objectives and intentions vis-à-vis the Iranians. We engage them in discussions over Iraq, but simultaneously deploy a second carrier battleship group off Iran's coast. We have toned down combative rhetoric but have allocated $75 million to democracy promotion in Iran, a move Iranians see as an attempt at subversion.
Diplomacy requires a degree of strategic flexibility for all parties.
Several commentators have called for a "grand bargain," in which Tehran and Washington would resolve all outstanding disputes -- and there are plenty dating back over 50 years -- including the nuclear issue. But a grand bargain sets the bar too high. Our ultimate goal should include normalizing relations with an Iran committed to peace and stability, but for the time being preventing nuclear proliferation must take precedence.
My preferred course of action combines credible sanctions and incentives with containment. We engaged Iran after Sept. 11 through the U.N.-sponsored forum on Afghanistan in Geneva, when we shared enemies in both the Sunni-extremist Taliban and Al-Qaida. Granted, conditions in our relationship have deteriorated, but there are opportunities for cooperation which should be pursued, though success is far from guaranteed.
It is hard to see a solution to Iraq's problems, progress in dealing with Lebanon's internal political conflict, or stability in Afghanistan without Iran's participation. Iran is in a position of leverage across the region and can block developments it does not favor.
One key to successfully engaging Iran may be offering carefully calibrated incentives, and we have plenty to offer. Despite its vast oil and gas resources, Iran desperately needs foreign investment and infrastructure development. Trade agreements leading to World Trade Organization membership could help salvage a struggling economy.
Robust and vigorous diplomacy could also help mobilize the international community -- crucially veto-wielding China and Russia -- to stand with us in enforcing sanctions painful enough to prompt changes in Iranian policy.
We must always remind Iran of the benefits of engagement and the costs of isolation. We should work for stronger, tougher sanctions and intrusive inspections without delay. Military action can remain our big stick while we speak a bit more softly.
There are few countries in the Middle East, or the world for that matter, that have caused us more heartburn over three decades than Iran. But if Iran and the U.S. are willing to negotiate seriously for a sustained period, what is difficult to imagine today could become possible tomorrow: a U.S.-Iran relationship grounded in a measure of mutual respect and elements of cooperation to meet our common interests, specifically preventing chaos in Iraq and denying the Taliban power in Afghanistan.

In a public protest against the Iranian president, Iranian students yelled "Death to the Dictator" referring to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The consequence is not yet known. (CNN)
In interview Vali Nasr said: "We are not going to see a change towards any time soon in Iran. The Iranian regime has the ability to crush the oppositions very effectively"
Does he know something that we are missing here? Does the United Nation support reform in Iran? Or should we put up with backward Islamic Republic of mullahs?
Ahmadinejad under high security gave speech in closed doors to selected supporters while student of Tehran University were blocked from entering the auditorium.
Some of the Iranian students slogans and posters were: "Death to Dictator", "Free imprisoned students", "We have questions too, Why only Columbia?" , "Here is Columbia too", "In Columbia yes, in Tehran no?", "Mahmoud Ahmadinejad source of poverty and corruption", "Freedom is our definite right", "Fascist government should be destroyed", "Shame on the regime leave the university", "student torture is condemned". "we don't want dictator regime, we don't want mercenary police", "political prisoners must be freed", "shame on police, leave the university", "Fascist president, university is not your place".
Ahamdinejad's motorcade left the university while the police tried to disburse the students with tear gas. The university were surrounded and blocked with police buses to prevent the outside public from joining the demonstrations. Many cameras were forcefully confiscated.
The news and media is from beyondmedia in youtube.
Remember Ahmadinejad said Israeli’s government should hold open and free elections so people, Palestinians and Israelis, can vote about their future. Right now, students protesting in front of Tehran University and ask Islamic Republic of Iran to do the same inside of country. They demand for free and open elections under the UN control in Iran so the Iranians can decide whether they want an Islamic Republic or NOT.

Dozens of students scuffled with hardline supporters of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Police on Tehran University campus and chanted "Death to the dictator" ahead of a speech there by the Iranian president.
Also students shouted "Ahmadinejad, source of pressure and discrimination", "Detained students should be released", "Free the political prisoners", "Fascist President, university is not your place", "We don’t want fascist regime", "We don’t want rule of force, we don’t want mercenary police" and they asked to boycott the elections.
The hardline regime supporter was shouted back, "Revolutionary president, we support you", "Hypocrites, leave the university", pushing and shoving students. The government gathered these supporters from Imam Hossein and Imam Sadegh universities which supported by Revolutionary guard. Also the area surrounded by police and plainclothes.
The student’s main question from President is “You went to Columbia University and answered to questions but you don’t want to hear Iranian students question? And answer to them”
The type of free speech and constructive opposition that this regime insist they support is not the one that we can ask for our rights! it is the one that you shouldn't ask for anything!
Many people in Iran have got this knowledge that they have to get rid of this regime and build a new democratic regime based on civil values, not religious thoughts! They push people hard to be real Muslim like Taliban government in Afghanistan. Yes and if you would research more, you would know that most shopping centers and high-rise buildings are belong to these mullahs and their dynasties. Can you tell me what percent of Iranians are poor? I tell you, at least 50 percent. Mam, you didn’t mention anything about students and political prisoners, torturing them, censorship and violence by regime towards people! You didn’t write anything about drugs, poverty, prostitution and HIV. At the end, you should do better job.
SALLY BUZBEE from Associated Press posted this article about Tehran capital of Islamic republic of Iran. I comment on each section of her article.
SALLY BUZBEE wrote:
This is affluent north Tehran, where clerics are rare, lifestyles are relatively liberal and Iran's growing isolation from the world is a source of deep anxiety.No mam, they are not rare in north Tehran. They live in north section of Tehran in huge mansions but mostly they don't appear with their special clothes around their living place! because they don't want to recognize by their neighbourhood.
Not far to the south, though, in a dilapidated bureaucratic building near the city's government center, and farther to the south in Tehran's sprawling poorer neighborhoods, things are different.
It's very very different in the middle and farther to the south.
It is the paradox of Tehran today — a city and people surprisingly cosmopolitan and far different from Western stereotypes, paired with an ultraconservative government working to consolidate its power and at sharp odds with the West.Mam, The fascist dictator Islamic Republic of Iran's regime is not going to consolidate with west just they want to make sure their dictatorship regime will stay in power!
Yet, whether modern or strictly traditional, many Iranians share one thing: A strong national pride and desire for respect from the outside world, sharpened by their sense of being under siege.Islamic regime has disgraced Iranians.
"The world does not understand us," said Shahryar Eivazzadeh, in his early 30s, who works at a softwareI have heard from lots of people in Iran that they would prefer to change the regime on any price. They believe they are not living but struggling with life so it's much better to end this torment.
company in north Tehran. Many young people may dislike the current government but they shudder at the thought of attack by the West, he said.
"Not everything is so bad here," he said of the criticism Iran faces. "It's not that simple."Mam, did you ask what's good there? Has regime done anything good? supporter of regime, like Shahryar will reply, "This regime brought back Islam to us"!
During key times, such as the recent anniversary of the war's start, hard-liners may deliberately use such images to shore up their influence. But even educated middle-class Iranians say their country sits in a rough neighborhood, surrounded by Arab countries that are not friendly, and that Iran needs ways to defend itself.
Such shared national sentiment aside, much of Tehran feels split.
Mam! These days you can find more people who would say they will fight to free their country from mullahs at any price. you can call this one, our national sentiment.
Hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won many votes in the conservative, poorer southern neighborhoods of Tehran, where people responded to his populist call for sharing the country's oil wealth.
Little of that sharing has happened, however, and even former Ahmadinejad supporters in parliament and the media have raised complaints about his economic performance.
Well, nothing good has happened since 1979, mam. People are terribly poorer than before. They struggling with high inflation rate in their daily life and oppression form government.
In the city's more upscale and modern north, the criticism is much sharper: Some shake their heads in disgust when the president's name comes up.
In one office building the morning after Ahmadinejad's recent speech at Columbia University, a middle-aged employee laughed ruefully and told a friend, "It's better not to know" what Ahmadinejad had said. "We don't deserve such a guy," he said, asking that his name not be used. The hardest-line newspapers, however, were full of praise.
The same divisions play out on the streets.
Even before the 1979 Islamic revolution and during the period immediately after, Tehran's northern
neighborhoods, especially the affluent suburbs stretching up into the foothills that ring the city, were a more Westernized bastion, where women often dressed in Western clothes, supporters of the shah's regime lived in villas and even some fast-food restaurants flourished.
The south was home to the poorer and more conservative, many of them economic migrants from Iran's provinces who
came to find work and crowded into small apartments, sometimes in neighborhoods with no working sewage systems.
The bulk of protests and street fighting surrounding the revolution occurred in the city's center, especially around Tehran University and the long boulevard now called Vali Asr, but supporters of revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini recruited many of their "foot
soldiers" from Tehran's southern neighborhoods. And Khomeini, on his return to the country from exile, based his headquarters there.
If You go south, you will see more poor thus more religious.
Over the years, and particularly after reformist President Mohammad Khatami came to power in the late 1990s, personal freedoms again exploded in the city's north as women began dressing more liberally and modern shops sprang up.
President Mohammad Khatami wasn't reformist in any way. During his presidency, students get killed, tortured and poisoned but he didn't even react. He lied like all of them. By the way, what do you expect from an Islamic state but lies?!
Even after the reform movement stalled and Ahmadinejad was elected in late 2005, the northern neighborhoods have remained something of a haven for the more liberal and
well-off — with modern freeways, new and often graceful high-rise apartment buildings and green parks.
Reform movement stopped because President Mohammad Khatami was against reform.
Nevertheless, the Ahmadinejad era has brought changes: Officials have cracked down on private freedoms in recent months, including stopping women on the streets for not properly covering their heads.
Yet in northern neighborhoods, young men still throng to hip hair salons at indoor shopping centers, the stylists and their customers on full display to passing young women, through plate-glass windows. Underground rock bands draw
fans, and pre-Revolutionary music plays from car stereos.
In Tehran's sprawling metropolitan area of 9 million, an estimated 60 percent of the population is younger than 25, and thus born sometime after the 1979 Islamic revolution.
At outdoor cafes in the northern foothills, families talk
about the hassles of heavy traffic and gasoline rationing and their fears of being priced out of the city's inflationary housing market. They swap sarcastic quips about the president, apparently unconcerned if someone overhears.
They also express some gloom about the future: Tips for obtaining a bank account in nearby Dubai are traded intently, at a time when U.S. government pressure on European and Asian banks to stop transactions with Iran has dried up access to the outside world economy.
People who has access to petrol money, they already transferred their dollars and offices to Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Only miles to the south, however, many women still wear the long, enveloping black chador as they go out to shop or take children to school. Pictures of Khomeini and the current supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, stare down from murals on many streets.
And hard-line figures like Hossein Shariatmadari, close to Khamenei, cast Iran's differences with the United States as an unending ideological struggle between their Islamic theocracy and a plundering, arrogant America.
Speaking in his office near the city's government center, the map of Syria and Israel on a wall nearby, Shariatmadari said Iran is strong enough to resist whatever the United States might throw its way.
Even if Iran curbed its nuclear program, the United States would merely come after Iran for something else, he said. The point is moot anyway, he said, because Iran will never give up the nuclear program.
"We simply want to control our own resources, run our own affairs," he said. "The mistake that the U.S. administration makes is to threaten Iran ... They don't understand the Iranian nation."
Shariatmadari, you should know, most people are no more fool of Islamic regime. Mullahs and their supporter, like you and even Islam is nothing for them anymore. You won't stand any chance to survive if people have the world support.
Many people in Iran have got this knowledge that they have to get rid of this regime and build a new democratic regime based on civil values, not religious thoughts!
They push people hard to be real Muslim like Taliban government in Afghanistan.
Yes and if you would research more, you would know that most shopping centers and high-rise buildings are belong to these mullahs and their dynasties.

The parade for liberation of Quds and Palestine originated in Iran after the 1979 Iranian Revolution. The observance was suggested by Ayatollah Khomeini, then Supreme Leader of Iran, in August of that year, saying
"I invite Muslims all over the globe to consecrate the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as Quds Day and to proclaim the international solidarity of Muslims in support of the legitimate rights of the Muslim people of Palestine. For many years, I have been notifying the Muslims of the danger posed by the usurper Israel which today has intensified its savage attacks against the Palestinian brothers and sisters, and which, in the south of Lebanon in particular, is continually bombing Palestinian homes in the hope of crushing the Palestinian struggle. I ask all the Muslims of the world and the Muslim governments to join together to sever the hand of this usurper and its supporters. I call on all the Muslims of the world to select as Quds Day the last Friday in the holy month of Ramadan - which is itself a determining period and can also be the determiner of the Palestinian people’s fate - and through a ceremony demonstrating the solidarity of Muslims world-wide, announce their support for the legitimate rights of the Muslim people. I ask God Almighty for the victory of the Muslims over the infidels."
