After the Islamic Revolution, the Emirates was the only country in the region to open its arms to Iranians, this time mostly Shiites. Some 450,000 Iranians now have residency here, and about 8,500 Iranian businesses are registered in the Emirates. The Emirates holds about US$300 billion (€208 billion) in assets from Iranians living abroad, the second largest amount after the United States.

As long as people are in control and fear, mullahs are able to have power, so Islamic Iran tries it's best to oppress people in every possible way like intimidation, restriction of people and also destruction of civil values. Here it doesn't matter it's a violation of human rights or not!
Reporters without borders operating a campaign draw your attention to the cases of journalists Maryam Hosseinkhah and Jelveh Javaheri, who were arrested on 18 November and on 2 December for writing about women’s issues on the Internet (blogging). Please sign the campaign.
Earlier this year a group of 13 Christian leaders from America travel to Iran to attempt what political leaders have yet to accomplish, building bridges between two countries. Women in the group describe their feelings in Iranian society where women are treated very differently than men.
Well, this story goes back to March 2007. I missed it and am trying to catch up.

Finally! I am not sure to say it's a good sign for Iranians but at least there is not be any justification for mullahs to go after nuclear weapons. but who's gonna stop them while they have been secretly after nuclear weapon before and still they are because of tons of reasons. Honesty, did any thing change their ultimate goal from reaching to nuclear weapon? Did mullahs get forever-on-power promise that stop them to have nukes?
Mullahs and in front of them, Ahmadinejad are happy for this deal but I hope at the end of the game, we don't get burn by nuclear explosion in Bushehr nuclear reactor!

Akhavan notes that Iran's apparent willingness to reopen the Kazemi case should be viewed within the context of its increasing diplomatic isolation. In March, the House human rights subcommittee recommended that Ottawa launch its own investigation (the Commons has yet to endorse this
I followed Zahra Kazemi's case very close because it was very important for me to see how Islamic non-Republic of Iran is dealing with dual-citizen's matters while there is not any little human rights for just Iranians. Recently Iranian Judiciary supreme court decided to reopen the case, anybody has hope something good comes out of it? No but we wait and see.
Payam Akhavan McGill University law professor called "latest probe is little more than a public relations ploy. The Iranian judiciary is a notorious instrument for the suppression of dissidents" Kazemi's son, Montreal resident Stephan Hachemi, 30, would agree. "I'm not waiting for anything from them," he says. Hachemi recently launched a $17-million civil suit in Quebec against the Iranian government.

Obadiah's invited me to check out his arguments against the peace process. While I was checking out his blog I find following interesting cartoon. Well, this is everybody's question, why Mohammad married to a girl name Aisha when she was 6-8 years old?! If you have a decent answer, please pass it on.

Please give a moment to this post. Do you to get to know an Islamic vampire? Well, lots of them are out there but just I want to talk about this one and what's in his mind, in his own words.
In a question and answer session with Ayatollah Shahroudi, head of the Judiciary System in Iran, he replied to a question in it's very barbaric possible option.
Question: During operating of punishment or retaliation punishment while they want to cut that specific body organ (member), is it permissible to make numb that organ before cut it?
His answer: Based on punishment rules and cases which indicated punishment should be painful and hurtful for convict, and it's condition of punishment and it should be there. In verse 24:2: "The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment." (Although this punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allah's Law).
So you are not allowed to make numb the convict before punishments specially punishments like burning convict or throwing from height (uphill), flogging, executions (by strangling) and etc.
Original news in Persian form Entekhab.
Now you tell me, can I call these mullahs including Ayatollah Shahroudi, Islamic vampires? or this name is an offence even to vampire?! you tell me.
In this funny video shows they try all possible options to get to you and make you convert to Islam. I guess they should bring awareness to their societies to stop spreading Islam otherwise it will come back and hunt them like what happened in Iran and almost the rest of Middle East.

Yesterday, Dec 10, 2007 was International Human Rights Day. Unfortunately in Iran we didn't celebrate it. well, there is no association who supports human rights in Iran and at the mean time if any NGO try to come close to this kind of topics, hmm, they will shut it down. what do you expect? human rights are meaningless in Iran, even mullahs don't consider people, human! As long as somebody is not in mullah's ruling social class then they won't consider he/she a human, typical social distinction system.
International Human Rights Day in Iran is full of inhuman Islamic cruelty. Activists, Students, bloggers, journalists, worker syndicate members & leaders are in prison just because they were doing their job! also lots of Innocent people. There is ongoing systematic mental, physical torture and human destruction everyday here. There is non-stop executions here, no matter suspect is a child or an adult. no matter you're still suspect or accused. Human rights, are you kidding? it is just a joke in the wild Islamic non-Republic of Iran. Justice should be foundation of human rights, here is all about injustice.
Oh, I guess just for a second I went nuts. what am I expecting from Islam? Islamic rules are against Human rights, Islam itself is totally against human right. so should we keep our mouth shout in Iran as long as Muslims are in majority? or should people including majority Muslims get rid of Islamic polity mullah ruling class and vote for a democratic secular political system?
That's the right answer, till that time we hope for the least casualty of our people by vampire mullahs and to show respect to what's happening to Iranian people, I call this day "International Inhuman Islamic Cruelty Day".
On December 09, 2007 yet again, Iranian students in Tehran university get together and protest against Islamic non-Republic of Iran's dictatorship and suppression. They were shouting "Death to Dictator" and called for the release of their fellow classmates.
Like always, police sieged the university with buses and police cars to prevent engagment of people and students. Even people from streets couldn't see through the university. Police arrested some of students in this event.

Well, I've never believed there is such thing like moderate in such a fanatic entity. How can you accept some part a religion and call it "moderate"?! so far, there has been no sign of moderation in Islam and it's believers. Muslims from all group are very quick to attack, not defend, read attack, any confrontation against Islam however so-called moderate Muslims has not spoken anything about Islamic injustice in Iran and other countries. so is there any meaning behind of "moderate Muslim"? oh sure, These are people who want to be acceptable in western society while their carry their personal interpretation of Islam. that's OK with me. Religion is personal but when they go under a brand name "moderate" and build society on top of it, people expect you, to stand up and talk about injustice in Islamic societies from any country that you are.
Actually I read Ayaan's article title in Newyork so I thought is good to have it here too. Ayaan Hirsi Ali has an op-ed piece in the New York Times called “Islam’s Silent Moderates” asking why moderate Muslims didn't react properly to "teddy bear case" or a girl rape case from Saudi Arabia or Bangladeshi writer? Her article is so good so I copy it here:
Islam’s Silent Moderates
Published: December 7, 2007
A 20-year-old woman from Qatif, Saudi Arabia, reported that she had been abducted by several men and repeatedly raped. But judges found the victim herself to be guilty. Her crime is called “mingling”: when she was abducted, she was in a car with a man not related to her by blood or marriage, and in Saudi Arabia, that is illegal. Last month, she was sentenced to six months in prison and 200 lashes with a bamboo cane.
Two hundred lashes are enough to kill a strong man. Women usually receive no more than 30 lashes at a time, which means that for seven weeks the “girl from Qatif,” as she’s usually described in news articles, will dread her next session with Islamic justice. When she is released, her life will certainly never return to normal: already there have been reports that her brother has tried to kill her because her “crime” has tarnished her family’s honor.
We also saw Islamic justice in action in Sudan, when a 54-year-old British teacher named Gillian Gibbons was sentenced to 15 days in jail before the government pardoned her this week; she could have faced 40 lashes. When she began a reading project with her class involving a teddy bear, Ms. Gibbons suggested the children choose a name for it. They chose Muhammad; she let them do it. This was deemed to be blasphemy.
Then there’s Taslima Nasreen, the 45-year-old Bangladeshi writer who bravely defends women’s rights in the Muslim world. Forced to flee Bangladesh, she has been living in India. But Muslim groups there want her expelled, and one has offered 500,000 rupees for her head. In August she was assaulted by Muslim militants in Hyderabad, and in recent weeks she has had to leave Calcutta and then Rajasthan. Taslima Nasreen’s visa expires next year, and she fears she will not be allowed to live in India again.
It is often said that Islam has been “hijacked” by a small extremist group of radical fundamentalists. The vast majority of Muslims are said to be moderates.
But where are the moderates? Where are the Muslim voices raised over the terrible injustice of incidents like these? How many Muslims are willing to stand up and say, in the case of the girl from Qatif, that this manner of justice is appalling, brutal and bigoted — and that no matter who said it was the right thing to do, and how long ago it was said, this should no longer be done?
Usually, Muslim groups like the Organization of the Islamic Conference are quick to defend any affront to the image of Islam. The organization, which represents 57 Muslim states, sent four ambassadors to the leader of my political party in the Netherlands asking him to expel me from Parliament after I gave a newspaper interview in 2003 noting that by Western standards some of the Prophet Muhammad’s behavior would be unconscionable. A few years later, Muslim ambassadors to Denmark protested the cartoons of Muhammad and demanded that their perpetrators be prosecuted.
But while the incidents in Saudi Arabia, Sudan and India have done more to damage the image of Islamic justice than a dozen cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad, the organizations that lined up to protest the hideous Danish offense to Islam are quiet now.
I wish there were more Islamic moderates. For example, I would welcome some guidance from that famous Muslim theologian of moderation, Tariq Ramadan. But when there is true suffering, real cruelty in the name of Islam, we hear, first, denial from all these organizations that are so concerned about Islam’s image. We hear that violence is not in the Koran, that Islam means peace, that this is a hijacking by extremists and a smear campaign and so on. But the evidence mounts up.
Islamic justice is a proud institution, one to which more than a billion people subscribe, at least in theory, and in the heart of the Islamic world it is the law of the land. But take a look at the verse above: more compelling even than the order to flog adulterers is the command that the believer show no compassion. It is this order to choose Allah above his sense of conscience and compassion that imprisons the Muslim in a mindset that is archaic and extreme.
If moderate Muslims believe there should be no compassion shown to the girl from Qatif, then what exactly makes them so moderate?
When a “moderate” Muslim’s sense of compassion and conscience collides with matters prescribed by Allah, he should choose compassion. Unless that happens much more widely, a moderate Islam will remain wishful thinking.

Even NIE report has negative impact on Iranian opposition against nuclear power because from now on, mullah's regime has right plausible excuse!
Saturday, December 8, 2007
Finally they hanged this young man for crimes that even though all of his accusers had recanted their testimony.
Well, last night I came to this article "The Flaws In the Iran Report" by John R. Bolton in washingtonpost which is very well explain flaws in the US intelligence community. Just I paste the article in following.
The Flaws In the Iran Report
By John R. Bolton
Rarely has a document from the supposedly hidden world of intelligence had such an impact as the National Intelligence Estimate released this week. Rarely has
an administration been so unprepared for such an event. And rarely have vehement critics of the "intelligence community" on issues such as Iraq's weapons of mass destruction reversed themselves so quickly.
All this shows that we not only have a problem interpreting what the mullahs in Tehran are up to, but also a more fundamental problem: Too much of the intelligence community is engaging in policy formulation rather than "intelligence" analysis, and too many in Congress and the media are happy about it. President Bush may not be able to repair his Iran policy (which was not rigorous enough to begin with) in his last year, but he would leave a lasting legacy by returning the intelligence world to its proper function.
Consider these flaws in the NIE's "key judgments," which were made public even though approximately 140 pages of analysis, and reams of underlying intelligence, remain classified.
First, the headline finding -- that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 -- is written in a way that guarantees the totality of the conclusions will be misread. In fact, there is little substantive difference between the conclusions of the 2005 NIE on Iran's nuclear capabilities and the 2007 NIE. Moreover, the distinction between "military" and "civilian" programs is highly artificial, since the enrichment of uranium, which all agree Iran is continuing, is critical to civilian and military uses. Indeed, it has always been Iran's "civilian" program that posed the main risk of a nuclear "breakout."
The real differences between the NIEs are not in the hard data but in the psychological assessment of the mullahs' motives and objectives. The current NIE freely admits to having only moderate confidence that the suspension continues and says that there are significant gaps in our intelligence and that our analysts dissent from their initial judgment on suspension. This alone should give us considerable pause.
Second, the NIE is internally contradictory and insufficiently supported. It implies that Iran is susceptible to diplomatic persuasion and pressure, yet the only event in 2003 that might have affected Iran was our invasion of Iraq and the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, not exactly a diplomatic pas de deux. As undersecretary of state for arms control in 2003, I know we were nowhere near exerting any significant diplomatic pressure on Iran. Nowhere does the NIE explain its logic on this critical point. Moreover, the risks and returns of pursuing a diplomatic strategy are policy calculations, not intelligence judgments. The very public rollout in the NIE of a diplomatic strategy exposes the biases at work behind the Potemkin village of "intelligence."
Third, the risks of disinformation by Iran are real. We have lost many fruitful sources inside Iraq in recent years because of increased security and intelligence tradecraft by Iran. The sudden appearance of new sources should be taken with more than a little skepticism. In a background briefing, intelligence officials said they had concluded it was "possible" but not "likely" that the new information they were relying on was deception. These are hardly hard scientific conclusions. One contrary opinion came from -- of all places -- an unnamed International Atomic Energy Agency official, quoted in the New York Times, saying that "we are more skeptical. We don't buy the American analysis 100 percent. We are not that generous with Iran." When the IAEA is tougher than our analysts, you can bet the farm that someone is pursuing a policy agenda.
Fourth, the NIE suffers from a common problem in government: the overvaluation of the most recent piece of data. In the bureaucracy, where access to information is a source of rank and prestige, ramming home policy changes with the latest hot tidbit is commonplace, and very deleterious. It is a rare piece of intelligence that is so important it can conclusively or even significantly alter the body of already known information. Yet the bias toward the new appears to have exerted a disproportionate effect on intelligence analysis.
Fifth, many involved in drafting and approving the NIE were not intelligence professionals but refugees from the State Department, brought into the new central bureaucracy of the director of national intelligence. These officials had relatively benign views of Iran's nuclear intentions five and six years ago; now they are writing those views as if they were received wisdom from on high. In fact, these are precisely the policy biases they had before, recycled as "intelligence judgments."
That such a flawed product could emerge after a drawn-out bureaucratic struggle is extremely troubling. While the president and others argue that we need to maintain pressure on Iran, this "intelligence" torpedo has all but sunk those efforts, inadequate as they were. Ironically, the NIE opens the way for Iran to achieve its military nuclear ambitions in an essentially unmolested fashion, to the detriment of us all.

I do consider these people who just give humankind non-sense Islamic rules in order to fool humankind to run the world with many sort of fears then later suck life out of us with their Islamic polity like exactly what are you doing now with us in Iran. They have made a new ruling social and political class who governs everything from government to inside economic Mafia.
I found everything about these people is just ridiculous but I thought it's good to know what are they?! We call them mullah which based on wikipedia
is a title given to some Islamic clergy, coming from the Arabic word mawla, meaning both 'vicar' and 'guardian.' Depending on the circumstances it can be either a term of respect (a learned man) or abuse (a bigot and fanatic).
I tell you, it's not a learned man, it's a bigot and fanatic just question them you'll easily notice they are strongly partial to their own group and totally intolerant to any other form of belief.
I consider myself polite and sometimes over polite so I use the term "Sorry" most of the time. one day I was running late and couldn't find a taxi on the street to go to meeting while I was waiting for a taxi I saw a mullah is coming in my direction towards me. At the same time that a taxi stopped by, this guy was next to me. I grabbed taxi and I said "I'm sorry" to the guy. you should know that I hate these people at my heart but I am polite and I can't help. why do I hate them is a story that it comes back to how they treat people and how they destroy Iran.
where I was? hmm "..sorry" then mullah guy replied "god forgive you". what the f...? Again my blood pressure just jumped high and my temper was out of control. it was flashback all they have done to my people in the name of god. on the other hand, I don't believe in god too. so I asked "Who is god? by the way, I didn't talk to god, I talked to you!"
You can't imagine this guy just shut it up! Oh, it's unbelievable. probably you don't know what I am talking about? mullahs don't stop talking and they have a religious answer for everything. they relate everything to god and Islam but this guy couldn't find anything else to say when I asked "Who is god?". Actually this incident had a good lesson for me. it taught me that mullah's existence has a meaning when religious people are out there. if there was not any religious one, what would they do? what would they teach? nothing. well then they just disappear like before their existence.
FYI: My statement "who is God?" consider dangerous and insulting in Iran because instantly people get killed if they confess that they are atheist or agnostic or non-believer. Also mullahs carry gun and they have the right to shoot. in one case a mullah killed a guy in front of people in subway station, just like that!

Just I was about to write about journalists and blogger (new) arrests in Iran which I came to this news that in past couple of days, they arrested about 28 Iranian university students and these students joined to their fellow classmates in prison. Just it's frustrating that you see your friends, classmates and young students all is ending to prison just because they have been asking freedom for university students. let me it clear that it's not just arresting, they humiliate students, beat them and confine them just because they are looking for justice and freedom, two rare things that you can't find in Islamic non-Republic of Iran.
Jelveh Javaheri, Maryam Hosseinkhah are two recent female activists and blogger who arrested on charges of disrupting the public opinion and anti-regime propaganda and lots of other meaningless accusations. and Omid Ahmadzadeh is a journalist who got arrested, since then nobody knows from his whereabouts! The blogger Reza Valizadeh arrested on the charge of writing about Iranian President's hypocrisy on bomb sniffing dogs.
Wait a minute! clergies are running Iran and Muslim Iranians (Most Iranians are Muslim) believe in this clergies as Islamic guardians who not only keep Islam safe from any false changes but also they teach people about Islam and guide people! So if there is no freedom in Islamic Iran and no justice either, shouldn't we just beat the hell out of clergies and throw them to their Mecca? Also throw Islamic fear foundation into garbage bags and burn all Islamic craps? what do you say?

We already passed World AIDS Day so just I wanted to review AIDS/HIV history in Islamic non-Republic Iran. Despite our religious fanatic non-sense Islamic-clergy disvalues which has been required huge denial on stats about HIV, drug, prostitution and anything that prove Islamic Iran is anything but an Islamic heaven! A heaven that a couple of sick humankind have created a long time ago to get away with all functional and dysfunctional problems that we have already seen on the earth. The promise of non-existence for unable human mind is full of pleasure specially if you're a Muslim. No offence, but isn't it that you believe in? aren't you waiting for heaven? anyhow, I am not going to write about heaven because just I believe the world that I am living in already is something close to hell which I am sure smart humankind could make it heaven, but we didn't so far!
Islamic state denial on AIDS in Iran goes back from the beginning of the disease to 1984 but in 1984-1985 about 5 percent of hemophiliac patients became HIV positive after being given clotting agents containing the virus so government allowed it goes public. back then it was an order not to disclose any information about AIDS with people and everything was under control of Intelligence Service in Iran.
Can you just imagine there were not enough knowledge and education about the disease so without even knowing that such thing exist, how could individuals take care of themselves? so to speak, it spread itself in young Iranian society. The Iranian Ministry of Health reports that almost 16,000 are infected. This number is just identified infected people who have had the knowledge to talk about their disease or some of them by chance through blood tests, got identify. Real numbers are far from this, most people afraid even to talk about it to doctors. there is fear of prosecution, confinement or even force hospitalization. Unfortunately society didn't get right education at the time that it needed most.
The other form of spreading AIDS was through sharing of needles by intravenous drug users which is mostly popular in prisons. well, there is not enough needles and lots of drugs, so they do share needles. anybody cares?! Islamic government just want everybody dead. There is an estimated more than 200,000 people shooting drugs in Iran so there should be a concern about future high AIDS patients.
I don't want to distract you but just imagine you're political prisoner and for more torture, they confine you between criminals instead of political prisoners. These bunch of people, with force, inject drugs with infected needles, so you're infected with HIV and you know, the future holds nothing for you. They kill hope and you have nothing more to disagree with. it has been one of this regime practices.
where I was? hmmm, although prostitution is illegal in Iran but it is there and nobody can stop it. Times to times they try to crack down but eventually the day after it is on the streets. Economic conditions have exacerbated problems, there is an steady increasing Divorce rates and late marriage in Iran. Well with under-30 crowd who make up 70 percent of Iran's population who they were born right before or shortly after the Islamic Revolution in 1979, and they have not touch that strict Islamic rules with this regime so they don't care for Islamic rules, having sexual intimacy and out of Islamic boundaries is so acceptable. On the other hand, using condoms is not much popular even though having multiple sexual partners is not odd, including prostitutes. and consider sex is still a taboo subject. with all that said people are in an increasing risk of infection.
Everybody in Islamic regime know that HIV threats Iranian young generation but there is sickening silence on this issue. At the meantime, they should create awareness campaigns and inform people about disease, transmission and prevention routes and etc. so it stops discrimination against AIDS patients and hopefully it helps unidentified patients in traditional Iranian society can approach to doctors, family, friends and talk about their problem.
Still I hope for that day.
