Top Iran-Related Weekend 'Must Reads'Topics: Iran
Time to decide on what to do with Iran is running short. If you're already getting ready to settle-in and rest for the weekend, think again: there're some op-eds and articles that you might want to read first:
Michael Ledeen has an interesting piece in the National Review urging the Bush administration to do the right thing with respect to Iran.
J. Grant Swank Jr, Mich News, also proposes to work with Iranian opposition groups.
Cameron Stewart (in the Weekend Australian)refers to what Charles Krauthammer wrote in The Washington Post this week: "North Korea tolerated two million dead from starvation to get its nuclear weapons. Iran will tolerate a shortage of flatscreen TVs," and adds his own comments.
On Iranian political forums, Nobel Prize Winner Shirin Ebadi is criticized for her almost pro-regime tones and for urging the Bush administration not to support the pro-democracy groups in the exile. Read the posts in the forums of Marze Por Gohar and Activist Chat.
And keep in mind what Ahmadinejad told a crowd of theological students in Iran's holy city of Qom:
"Islam must prepare to rule the world ..."And be very much aware that Tehran is planning a nuclear weapons test before the Iranian New Year on March 20, 2006.
"We must believe in the fact that Islam is not confined to geographical borders, ethnic groups and nations. It's a universal ideology that leads the world to justice..."
"We don't shy away from declaring that Islam is ready to rule the world."
