Archive for June, 2010:
Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran, is responsible more than anyone else, for the latest round of sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
To some Iranians, the Turkish flotilla shouldn’t be interpreted as an attack on the Israeli siege of Gaza, but first and foremost as an assault against their influence in Gaza.
Iran’s efforts to send its own flotilla are testimony to that.
The Israeli siege of the Gaza Strip hurts Israel far more than it does Hamas.
On Saturday 12th of June, it will be one year since Iran’s controversial presidential elections took place.
The article below asks: one year on, what has changed?
The takeover of the Turkish-flagged Mavi Marmaris by Israeli commandos led to demonstrations in numerous places around the world. People in Baku, Istanbul, and as far away as Edmonton, Canada, marched on the streets to voice their opposition to Israel’s actions.
However, in Tehran and in other big cities in Iran, the streets have been eerily quiet.
Just what is going on? Has Ayatollah Khamenei become shy ?
What’s likely to make Tehran particularly happy is the fact that Israel walked into a trap, with its eyes wide open.
