ElBaradei’s Iran visit: a mere failure

ElBaradei

UN Nuclear Watchdog Chief Mohamed ElBaradei


April 13, 2006 (Stop Fundamentalism) – Mohamed ElBaradei the Noble peace prize laureate and the head of the UN nuclear watchdog agency IAEA arrived in Tehran Thursday to talk Iran into suspension of its uranium enrichment program and return to the negotiating table with the West.

Iran sparked international alarm two days ago after it announced that it has achieved the capability to operate a 164 cascade of centrifuges, which could produce 3.5% enriched uranium.  The technology, as scientists say, could be used to produce weapon’s grade uranium.

Iranian hardliner President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declared on Tuesday April 11 that Iran had officially joined the group of countries with nuclear capabilities commonly known as the”Nuclear Club.”

“I officially announce that Iran has joined the world’s nuclear countries,” Ahmadinejad said in a speech that was broadcasted on state television.

Former Iranian President Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani also announced on Tuesday, despite a call by the United Nations Security Council for Iran to cease all uranium enrichment activities that this country has begun uranium enrichment.

Who controls Iraq

Iraq Police run by the Mullahs in Tehran

Iraqi police controled by Iranian supported paramilitary


The chaotic state in Iraq continues to claim innocent lives by the hands of paramilitary forces that are wildly believed to be connected to Iran.

Last week in a mosque after the Friday prayer sermon, an explosion killed 85 people and injured 165 others.  This was the latest big explosion in Iraq while the killing continues on daily bases around this country.

In a television interview with Al-Jazzira Network, Hareth Al-Nazari, chief of Muslim Leaders Group in Iraq said, “the current government in Iraq is responsible for the death of 40,000 people during the past year.” 

“After the bombing of the Sammara’s holy shrine, an organized, preplanned attack on mosques and holy places around the country took place that resulted in destruction.”  Al-Nazari continued, “during the next three days after the bombing over 1500 people were killed and over 2000 were arrested many of whom their bodies were found later on near roads and rivers.”

Brussels Tribunal, a judiciary body based in Brussels, in a letter to the Special Reporter of the United Nations, asked for immediate investigation on assassination of Iraq universities teachers and scientific staff.  According to Brussels Tribunal, 250 university professors have been assassinated, tens of others have disappeared, and thousand have fled the country to save their lives.  This shows that Iraq is under an organized attack aimed at destroying the country’s educational institution.

Iran ex-intelligence chief to be arrested

Friday April 7, 2006 (Stop Fundamentalism) – a Swiss judge ordered an international arrest warrant for one of the most notorious Iranian terrorists known, the former head of Iran’s secret police, Ali Fallahian, for ordering the assassination of a prominent Iranian dissident 15 years ago in Switzerland.

The warrant demands the arrest of Ali Fallahian on grounds he "decided and ordered the execution of Kazem Rajavi.”  Rajavi, a prominent Human Right activist, was shot to death near his suburban Geneva home in 1990.  He had obtained political asylum in Switzerland in 1973.

Iranian Intelligence Ministry agents have been behind the slayings of a number of dissidents abroad especially during Fallahian’s eight-year tenure as intelligence chief.

German authorities issued a warrant for Fallahian in March 1996 for allegedly ordering the killing of four Iranian dissidents in Berlin, but there has never been a report of his being arrested.

  • Yesterday a Swiss judge ordered an international arrest warrant for one of the most notorious Iranian terrorists known, the former head of Iran’s secret police, Ali Fallahian, for ordering the assassination of a prominent Iranian dissident 15 years ago in Switzerland.

    What is noteworthy about the judgment is that the case for this murder was closed a couple of times by the Swiss authorities due to political pressures from Iran. Some terrorists involved in the assassination fled to France at the time but the French authorities arrested and sent them to Tehran.

    The Iranian regime has committed many assassinations of political opponents through out the Europe especially during the 1980s. However, due to established political and economical ties with the host country, it has always managed to get away. Now after 27 years, the West is beginning to realize the true nature of this regime and the real threat it poses to the whole world.

    The arrest warrant is a positive step towards realization of dissent amongst the Iranians.

    In addition, it is important to realize that assassination and terrorist activities by the regime came directly from the supreme leader Ayatollah Khamanei and Iran’s second man Ali-Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. Therefore, they also should be on International Police’s arrest list.

    Swiss judge orders arrest of Iran’s former intelligence chief

    A Swiss judge has issued an international arrest warrant for the former head of Iran’s notorious secret police for his role in the assassination of a prominent Iranian dissident.

    The warrant was issued to law enforcement agencies for the arrest of Hojjatoleslam Ali Fallahian, who for years headed Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS). Fallahian was charged with masterminding the assassination of Prof. Kazem Rajavi, a renowned human rights advocate, and elder brother of Iranian opposition leader Massoud Rajavi.

    Kazem Rajavi, then the representative of the opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in Switzerland, was gunned down in broad daylight by several MOIS agents on April 24, 1990 as he was driving to his home in Coppet, a village near Geneva.

    Iran could face Chapter 7 in Security Council

    March 6, 2006 (Stop Fundamentalism) – Reuters reported from the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Thursday this week that the United Nations Security Council would only give Iran two chances to freeze its nuclear activity before sanctions are imposed,.

    "This is a calibrated, gradual, reversible approach," said Ambassador John Bolton.

    If Iran defies a statement from the Security Council, which has urged it to suspend its nuclear enrichment activities by the end of this month, then the council would likely issue a stiffer warning demanding such compliance, Bolton said.

    Another Public Execution in Iran

    Stop Fundamentalism – Reports from news agencies and Iranian sources indicate that a man identified only by his first name ‘Mohammed’ has been the latest victim of public execution in Iran.

    The execution took place on April 5 in the city of Bam, the scene of the devastating earthquake of December 2003.

    The man was convicted of murdering another man in 2005, authorities say.

    The execution brings the total number of people executed in Iran in 2006 to 30 according to France Press News Agency.

    Public executions in Iran are used as means of controlling the ever growing public dissent especially amongst the youth in Iran. Therefore, the main victims of these public executions are teens and young adults whose ages range between 18 through 25.

    Currently, there are at least two young women in Iran on death row. Delara Darabi 19, and Nazanin 18, both committed their crimes when they were under 18.

    Iranian regime also executed a political prisoner, Mr. Hojjat Zamani, a prominent resistance figure on February 7 and another political prisoner, Mr. Valiollah Feiz-Mahdavi is currently awaiting his execution set to be carried out on May 16. He reportedly has been forced to sign his own death warrant.

    Public executions are usually carried out by hanging the victim from a crane in crowded areas of major cities and public squares to receive maximum number of viewers.

    No more pussyfooting around Iran

    The Telegraph

    Three years on, we are still unable to look at foreign policy except through the lens of the Iraq war. This is especially true when it comes to Iran, whose alphabetical and geographical proximity to Iraq makes for facile comparisons.

    In particular, it is argued that deploying force against Teheran would bring about the same unhappy consequences as the toppling of Saddam: it would lead to more instability; it would inflame Muslim opinion throughout the world, including in Western cities; it would violate international law; and it would worsen the lives of ordinary Iranians.

    Once again, the motives of those calling for direct action are called into question. Just as we were forever being told that the West had sold weapons to Ba’athist Iraq, so we are now being reminded that it was British and American agents who overthrew Iranian democracy in the first place, back in 1953. This last argument is very silly: the fact that we made mistakes in the past is not a reason to make more mistakes in the future. But the other objections are serious ones, and deserve to be considered separately.

    Iran could face Chapter 7 in Security Council

    Iran Nuclear Security councilMarch 6, 2006 (Stop Fundamentalism) – Reuters reported from the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Thursday this week that the United Nations Security Council would only give Iran two chances to freeze its nuclear activity before sanctions are imposed,.

    "This is a calibrated, gradual, reversible approach," said Ambassador John Bolton.

    If Iran defies a statement from the Security Council, which has urged it to suspend its nuclear enrichment activities by the end of this month, then the council would likely issue a stiffer warning demanding such compliance, Bolton said.

    "Then we will consider the next step, which may well be a Chapter 7 resolution that imposes sanctions of some kind," Bolton told reporters.

    Under “Chapter 7 resolution,” the United Nations could authorize military action, such as air strikes, against Iran.

  • Last week finally the nuclear dossier of Iran’s theocratic regime was officially brought before the United Nations Security Council and a Presidential Statement was released calling on Tehran to abandon its nuclear program.

    Although the statement was toned down in many ways to bring Russia and China aboard, it is important to realize the significance of the first step taken by the Security Council.

    No matter what Iran may do now and how many steps we may be away before real sanctions are imposed, the referral by itself is a major step in dealing with the mullahs results of which can be seen and heard in their reactions, ludicrous statements and hollow show of force (please refer to multi- targeting missile in this issue.)

    What we must not forget and surly press for, is the fact that there is one issue left mainly unattended with regards to the tyrannical regime in Iran that also deserves immediate attention by the world community and the Security Council. This important issue is Iran’s Human Rights record.

    The mullahs have in the past resorted to mass executions in order to keep their grip on power and control the public. In 1988, after the Iran-Iraq war was called to a halt by Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, about 30,000 political prisoners were massacred in Iran in a two months period by direct orders from the Ayatollah.

    <>bye-bye-ali.gif

    The execution of a member of the Iranian Resistance, Mr. Hojjat Zamani on February 7 and the threats to execute another political prisoner by the name of Valiollah Feiz-Mahdavi on May 6, rings an alarming sound of a nearing genocide.

    To prevent this disaster from happened, the United Nations Security Council should attend Iran’s Human Rights violations in parallel with its nuclear record and assign a special envoy to investigate the dreadful situations of prisoners in Iran specially the political prisoners.

    High-tech missile hits many targets in one shut!

    Security Council gives Iran 30 days

    March 30, 2006 (Stop Fundamentalism) – After three weeks of intense negotiations between 5 veto- wielding permanent members of the UN Security Council, all 15 members of the Council unanimously approved a Presidential Statement about Iran’s nuclear program.

    The non-binding statement that was approved on Wednesday gives Iran 30 days to stop all nuclear projects and uranium enrichments and return to the negotiating table or face isolation.

    The statement stepped back from five precise demands made in an earlier draft, including access to individuals, documentation, and nuclear sites. However, diplomats said the statement implicitly endorsed them by calling on Tehran to take all steps previously stipulated by the IAEA board.

    Iran’s Human Rights record deserves immediate attention

    Public Executions of political prisoners

    “Plitical Prisoners by “Sala”


    Last week, the nuclear dossier of Iran’s theocratic regime was officially brought before the United Nations Security Council and a Presidential Statement was released calling on Tehran to abandon its all enrichment-related activity.

    Although the statement was watered down to accommodate Russia and China, it is important to realize the significance of the first step taken by the Security Council. 

    No matter what Iran may do now and how long we may be away before sanctions are imposed, the referral in and of itself is a major step in dealing with the mullahs.  The regime’s reaction, ludicrous statements and the hollow show of force is indicative of the seriousness of the Security Council referral.

    What we must not forget and should surely press for, is the fact that the situation of human rights in Iran also merits a great deal of action and requires swift international action.

    The mullahs have in the past resorted to mass executions in order to keep their grip on power and control the public.  In 1988, after the ceasefire in the Iran-Iraq war, no less than 30,000 political prisoners were massacred in Iran in a matter of few months following a fatwa by Khomeini.

    Iran test-fires a missile capable of dodging radars and multiple targeting in a naval maneuver.


    March 31, 2006 (Stop Fundamentalism) – Iran claims to have successfully test-fired a missile capable of dodging radars and multiple targeting in a naval maneuver.

    Hossein Salami, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Air Force Commander told this to the state television in an interview.  He described the successful test as “a prominent achievement of the country’s defense capability."

    "The missile’s design and production was done by the scientists in the Iranian defense ministry.  It has unique capabilities which are unmatched in the world’s advanced armies, since it was built based on our defense needs," Salami said.

    "It uses multiple warhead technology, which (means) after the detachment of its warhead it becomes divergent, enabling it to hit different targets at the same time accurately, therefore fooling the enemy’s anti-missile systems."

    The missile was tested on the first day of weeklong military exercises in the Persian Gulf.  Over 17,000 soldiers and 1,500 naval vessels of various types would be present in the operations of this war game, during which the Iranian military’s readiness to defend the country would be displayed, the IRGC announced Wednesday.
