    Monday many Iraqi women took to the streets of Iraq to warn Iran not to interfere in their elections.

    Although Iran has been asked many times not to interfere, this country continues to push for its own list of candidates. That is besides preparing false ballots and using violence to create chaos.

    It seems that the days of Khatami with mirage of a moderation in Islamic world are passed. Today’s Iran government has evolved into a Fascist state terrorizing the whole region and the world.
