Full text of Trident report by Foreign Policy CentreBRITAIN has been secretly designing a new nuclear warhead in conjunction with the Americans, provoking a legal row over the proliferation of nuclear weapons.

The government has been pushing ahead with the programme while claiming that no decision has been made on a successor to Britain’s Trident nuclear deterrent. Work on a new weapon by scientists at the Atomic Weapons Establishment at Aldermaston in Berkshire has been under way since Tony Blair was re-elected last May, and is now said to be ahead of similar US research

Jewish Life in Iran

Jewish Life in Iran

IRAN: AN OLD FRIEND OF THE JEWS?

By: Professor Harold Gellis

The forlorn sand-colored brick structure with the green dome in Hamadan is in danger.

 After having withstood waves of hostility for five centuries, it now needs a Divine miracle. It needs a miracle similar to the Divine miracle that took place here once before – two and a half millennia ago. Here in Shushan, now modern-day Hamadan, the Jews of Persia were saved by the Almighty from certain destruction. Now, it is the tomb of Mordechai and Esther, the protagonists of the Purim story, which faces possible destruction.

Iran: An old friend of the Jews

Clearly in this tale there are two gropes to blame, Israel government and students in Hamadan Iran  

The Israel government for their attack to Islam’s heritage, culture, history, and territory which are joint tenant, with Jews, Moslems, Christians, all alike

 And the other, young students, inexperience, and bias 

For centauries through out the history the natives lived together dominated by majority rule in harmony, and they respected each others heritage, related to one another through intercourse, association,  socializing and being part of it, as one family

Israel is not a Jewish state, and not because they are or are not Jews but because they don’t belong to the environment and while it is not like the new world, they don’t understand the heritage, culture, history of the land  

They formulate wrong decisions and make problems for other governments and nations

Local governments as Iranian government list the heritage to guard it but when troubled,  announce it to be a holy Moslem Shrine to protect it

MANAMA, Bahrain — The popular revolts shaking the Arab world have begun to shift the balance of power in the region, bolstering Iran’s position while weakening and unnerving its rival, Saudi Arabia, regional experts said.

While it is far too soon to write the final chapter on the uprisings’ impact, Iran already has benefited from the ouster or undermining of Arab leaders who were its strong adversaries and has begun to project its growing influence, the analysts said. This week Iran sent two warships through the Suez Canal for the first time since its revolution in 1979, and Egypt’s new military leaders allowed them to pass

Iran on new voyage of discovery
By Kaveh L Afrasiabi“The Americans try hard to not be the target of these huge popular uprisings, but will fail because people have realized that the policies of Americans and their cronies are the causes of humiliation and division among nations. As a result, the key to resolving people’s problems rests on ending America’s arrangement in the region.”
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei

Bahrain—Electing A New People…And Shooting The Old One
By Steve Sailer

The unprovoked killing by government forces of five Shi’ite protestors in the Persian Gulf statelet of Bahrain, headquarters for the U.S. Fifth Fleet, turns out upon examination to be deeply intertwined with Bahrain’s troubles with diversity and immigration.

And they turn out to be uncomfortably not completely dissimilar to ours.

Iran is sending two warships through Egypt’s Suez Canal for the first time since Iran’s 1979 revolution. The two ships, a frigate and a military supply ship, are reportedly bound for Syria. The new Egyptian government gave its official permission for the passage despite the fact that Iran and Egypt have had tense relations for many years

Great: Iranian Warships Call in Jeddah

Great: Iranian Warships Call in Jeddah

“Who are you? Get back to your own territory which you have acquired through bloodshed

For thousands of years Persian (Iranians) have patrolled these waters as it is their territory and neighbor countries
Who are you? Get back to your own territory which you have acquired through bloodshed

Warships of the Islamic Revolutionary Iranian Navy have never visited a Saudi port until this week. Jeddah is on the Red Sea, where Iranian warships have occasionally ventured since they were first dispatched in late 2008 for anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden. Regional reporting has indicated that Iranian patrol ships have made port calls in the Red Sea port of Assab, Eritrea (where other unconfirmed reports have it that Iran has deployed missiles – of unknown type – and a contingent of troops).

But until now, there has been no port call in Saudi Arabia and no hint of one.  Indeed, Saudi reporting from November 2009 registered grave concern over Iranian activities in the Red Sea.

The two-ship Iranian task force, consisting of two British-built vessels, Vosper Mark V-class frigate Alvand and supply ship Kharg, left Iran on 26 January, according to Iranian news sources. The next day, a senior naval officer announced that the task force, deployed as the 12th Naval Group, “would enter the Red Sea and the Mediterranean waters.”  The prospect of a Mediterranean deployment is as unprecedented as the Saudi port visit. There is no guarantee it will actually happen, but the timing is interesting.

How Iran Derailed a Health Crisis

December 3, 2010, 9:00 pm <!– — Updated: 10:36 pm –>How Iran Derailed a Health Crisis

By TINA ROSENBERG

So how did Iran do it?   How did a conservative theocracy decide to deal with its drug addicts as if it were Canada?  In Tuesday’s column, I wrote that Iran is treating its massive epidemic of injecting drug use mainly as a health problem.  With this strategy, it has effectively managed to lower H.I.V. rates among drug users and keep the disease from spreading.  It has taken an approach to drugs known as harm reduction, which includes the provision of methadone maintenance therapy and clean needles to drug users.
