Non-proliferation: Onus is on major nuclear states
This year will be crucial for nuclear arms control. The non-proliferation review conference in May could decide whether the global non-proliferation regime survives or not. And all eyes will be on the United States and Russia to see if the two top atomic powers can reach a deal to reduce their nuclear arsenals. Delivering a speech in Prague in April, US President Barack Obama said his country was committed to seeking “a world without nuclear weapons”.

Lawmakers threaten UK ties
Dozens of Iranian members of parliament have put forward a proposal to cut relations with Britain, which Teheran has often accused of interfering in its internal affairs, Iranian media reported yesterday. Late last month, Iran summoned the British ambassador in Teheran and Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki threatened Britain with a “slap in the mouth” if it did not stop interfering in Iranian affairs.

Mehrfrontenkampf im Jemen
SANAA (ag., red). Der Jemen bemüht sich, im Kampf gegen das Terrornetzwerk al-Qaida Tatkraft zu demonstrieren: In der Nacht auf Mittwoch habe die Armee bei einer Schießerei den al-QaidaFührer Abdullah al-Mehdar getötet, vermeldete die Armee stolz. Vier weitere Terroristen seien festgenommen worden, 15 gelang aber offenbar die Flucht, was den Erfolg der Aktion wieder schmälert. Ein Stammesführer wird von der Agentur AP indes mit den Worten zitiert, man hätte die „fehlgeleiteten junge Männer“ ohne Kampf den Sicherheitskräften übergeben können – wenn diese nur vorstellig geworden wären.

AYATOLLAHS DESERT IRAN’S BESIEGED REGIME
AYATOLLAH Ruhollah Khomeini established his Islamic regime on the premise of velayet-e faqih, the undisputed moral and religious authority of the supreme leader as a successor to the prophet Mohammed and the infallible Shia imams. This premise was set to justify and guarantee the survival of the system he created. Undisputed authority, he thought, with a back-up from Allah, cannot be challenged. But as events in Iran unfold, it becomes clear this is no longer the case.

BEIJING — China successfully tested emerging military technology aimed at destroying missiles in mid-air, the government said, while state media warned ties with Washington would be hurt by U.S. missile sales to Taiwan. China claims Taiwan is an illegitimate breakaway from mainland rule and sees the U.S. arms sales as an intrusion into a domestic dispute.

Bomb hurts three in Hezbollah stronghold
A bomb apparently meant for a Hezbollah figure went off Wednesday in a southern Lebanese stronghold of the militant group, wounding his daughter and two other students waiting for their school bus, military and security officials said. The officials said the bomb exploded around 7:30 a.m. (0530 GMT) at the entrance of an apartment building in the village of Kfar Fila.

Iran anti-gov’t use money to write protest slogans
Facing hard-line forces on the streets, I ran’s anti-government demonstrators have taken their protests to a new venue: writing “Death to the Dictator” and other opposition slogans on bank notes, while officials scramble to yank the bills from circulation. There’s no way to calculate how much Iranian currency has been scribbled on or stamped with dissident messages in recent months in response to efforts to halt public demonstrations or choke off the Internet and cell phone messaging.

Obama’s foreign failings put U. S. at greater risk
Most Americans have painfully noticed that President Obama’s domestic policies aren’t getting the job done with record deficits, soaring public debt and rising unemployment — not to mention the nightmarish health care debate. Fewer, however, have probably realized the Obama administration’s foreign and national security policies are flagging after a year in the White House, too, putting the United States (U.S.) at increasing risk in an already dangerous world.

Campbell was let off too lightly
IT’S disappointing that the Chilcot Inquiry panel did not focus relentlessly on the gaping hole in Alastair Campbell’s defence of his and Tony Blair’s record in Iraq, summed up in his written evidence that “when the diplomatic process clearly was not going to resolve the issue, post [UN resolution] 1441 and when the French pulled the plug, then military action became the only means of response”. This grossly misrepresents what happened.

Iran: Israel, CIA killed scientist
TEHRAN—PARLIAMENT SPEAKER ALI Larijani, Iran’s former chief nuclear negotiator, accused intelligence agents of the United States and Israel on Wednesday of plotting a bombing which killed a top atomic scientist. “We had received clear information a few days before (the assassination) that the (intelligence) service of the Zionist regime, with the cooperation of the CIA, were seeking to carry out a terrorist act in Tehran,” the ISNA news agency quoted Larijani as saying.

It’s tough at the top
Dennis Atkins attacked from the Right, he’s being sniped at by his own supporters. Perhaps the most powerful voice of dissent inside the tent came just before New Year from Leslie H. Gelb, the president-emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, who warned that unless Obama got his act together he could end up a one-term president like Jimmy Carter. The Carter comparison – seen on the cover of the latest Foreign Policy magazine with photos of Obama and Carter next to each other with an ‘‘equals’’ sign in between – is deadly in Democratic circles.

Group sues US Government for labelling it terrorist
WASHINGTON: The People’s Mujahideen is sick and tired of being called a terrorist organisation by the US Government. So its leaders settled on a uniquely American strategy: they sued. Yes, the group has done its share of assassinations, bombings, embassy attacks and killings of US troops. But that was long ago, and now the People’s Mujahideen says it has devoted itself to democracy and nonviolence, and it would like very much to be taken off the State Department’s list of international terrorist groups.

Motobomba a Teheran Ucciso fisico nucleare
GERUSALEMME — Tutto troppo strano. Il modo per ucciderlo: una motobomba, (quasi) mai vista in Iran. E il motivo: Massud Ali Mohammadi, 50 anni, docente di fisica quantistica a Teheran, non era conosciuto come un esperto di nucleare, non era una voce forte dell’opposizione, non era un amico del regime. Era un professore e basta, a quel che si sa.

‘US, Israel behind scientist’s death’
Remote-controlled bomb kills Tehran University nuclear expert TEHRAN | A remote-controlled bomb killed a Tehran University nuclear scientist yesterday, state media reported, in an attack which Iran blamed on American and Israeli agents. The blast which killed Professor Massoud Ali-Mohammadi occurred at a time of heightened tension in the Islamic Republic, seven months after a disputed presidential poll plunged the major oil producer into turmoil.

Israeli PM backs Turk diplomat’s slap-down
ISRAELI Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has backed the public humiliation of Turkey’s ambassador to Tel Aviv as diplomatic relations between the once-close allies teeter on the brink of collapse. With Turkey still evaluating its response to ambassador Ahmet Celikkol’s treatment, Mr Netanyahu warned Turkey’s relationship with Iran should be of grave concern to the West. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned Turkey ‘‘ will respond appropriately’’ unless Israel ‘‘stops provoking’’ his country.

Iranian professor dies in bombing
A remote-controlled bomb attached to a motorcycle killed an Iranian physics professor outside his home in northern Tehran yesterday, state media reported. The reports blamed the United States and Israel for the attack. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. A state broadcaster, IRIB, quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman as saying that “in the initial investigation, signs of the triangle of wickedness by the Zionist regime, America and their hired agents are visible in the terrorist act” against the scientist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi.

Physics professor killed in Iran
TEHRAN, Iran – A nuclear physics professor who publicly backed Iran’s Opposition Leader Mir Hossein Mousavi in the disputed June presidential election was killed yesterday when a bombrigged motorcycle blew up outside his home. The blast, apparently set off by a remote trigger, left a puzzling mix of clues about why a 50-year-old researcher with no prominent political voice, no published work with military relevance and no declared links to Iran’s nuclear programme would be targeted.

Diplomatic stand-off over TV drama
JERUSALEM— Even in the tough world of Middle East diplomacy, it was a startling snub: the Turkish Ambassador was seated lower than his Israeli host, denied not only a handshake but a smile — all for the benefit of eager Israeli TV crews. While diplomatic messages are often found in subtle gestures, Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon offered a humiliating reprimand of Ankara’s envoy — ostensibly over a TV show.

Slain physicist linked to Iran reformists
The Iranian nuclear physicist killed by a bomb near his home on Tuesday had ties to the reformist movement led by opposition leader Mir-Hossein Moussavi. Dr Moussad Ali-Mohammadi was leaving his house for work at Tehran University when the bomb, attached to a motorcycle, went off, killing him instantly. The bomb is thought to have been detonated remotely. Iranian authorities blamed exiled opposition movements working on behalf of America and Israel, a charge denied by Washington officials.

Relatie Israël en Turkije verslechterd
Ayalon ontbood de ambassadeur maandag om zijn woede te uiten over een televisieprogramma op de Turkse televisie, waarin sprake is van Israëlische geheim agenten die baby’s stelen. Ayalon zette een decor op om die woede er bij de ambassadeur, Ahmet Oguz Celikkol, goed in te wrijven. Ayalon en twee medewerkers gingen op hoge stoelen zitten, en Celikkol werd, zonder handdruk vooraf, aan de overkant van de tafel op een laag bankje gezet. Op de tafel was een Israëlische vlag neergezet.

Commotie niet te volgen op inhoudelijke gronden
De commotie naar aanleiding van het rapport van de commissie-Davids is wel op partijpolitieke, maar niet op inhoudelijke gronden te volgen. Zo heette het dat de volkenrechtelijke onderbouwing niet deugde. Boeiend, maar dat hadden wij ook al in 2003 gehoord. Als een volkenrechtelijke onderbouwing afhankelijk is van de VN Veiligheidsraad, dan weten we het wel: opportunistische veto’s – uit allerlei richtingen – bepalen ineens iets van ‘een’ volkenrecht. In die situaties spelen principes (recht dus) doorgaans geen rol.

Dat hebben de staatsmedia bekendgemaakt. Op ‘corruptie op aarde’ staat de doodstraf. Volgens de internationale baha’igemeenschap worden de zeven in werkelijkheid wegens hun geloof vervolgd. In Iran zijn de rechten van christenen en joden in de grondwet vastgelegd.

The victim was a 50year-old researcher with no prominent political voice, no published work with military relevance and no declared links to Iran’s nuclear program.

El Ministerio de Fomento pretende también que los controladores trabajen más tiempo con una menor remuneración, ya que ahora perciben la friolera de 350.000 euros de media por trabajador. Los datos que facilitó el ministro de Fomento son escandalosos, ya que existen 31 controladores que ganan más de 720.000 euros brutos anuales.

Hipocresía en el trato a los inmigrantes
Sr. Director: En Rosarno (Italia), con violencia, y en Vic (España), con el padrón en la mano –y con él, la identidad civil(educación, salud...)–, Europa se está empezando a movilizar en contra de los inmigrantes que no quiere. El viejo continente pretendía encontrar a un joven soltero, centroafricano, musulmán no practicante, para emplearlo en las faenas agrícolas; a peones de la construcción capaces de vivir en las obras donde trabajan y dispuestos a la movilidad continua de tajo en tajo; a una mujer de mediana edad, cargas familiares en origen, de tez clara y católica practicante para el servicio doméstico; a mujeres y hombres moldeables por el horario de la hostelería, la limpieza industrial y el comercio... Todos ellos, dispuestos a cobrar un 40% menos que la población local. Pero llegaron personas. Casos como éstos demuestran que no se trata de racismo, sino de economía. Luis Fernando Crespo Zorita.

Abbiamo un regime non occidentale come l'Iran, immerso a sua volta in una temperie prerivoluzionaria. Ma stavolta, se si vuol capire il vero significato di questo delitto, proprio a questi elementi di contesto occorre guardare. Infatti la figura in sé non lo spiega: Massud Ali Muhammadi, lo scienziato ucciso, era infatti una figura di secondo piano nel programma nucleare iraniano e per lo più un fisico teorico che insegnava all'università. Ciò che è davvero significativo è invece il momento nel quale questo attentato è avvenuto.

Iran geeft de VS en Israël de schuld, de oppositie zegt dat hij op de lijst van 420 professoren stond die de oppositie steunen.

Spänt efter bombdåd mot fysiker
Enligt andra uppgifter var Mohammadi snarare en regimkritiker, om än inte en person som blivit offentligt känd som sådan. Mordet på Masoud Ali Mohammadi ökar ytterligare spänningen mellan regeringen och oppositionen. Det sätt som den iranska regimen snabbt pekade ut inhemska regimkritiker för att tillsammans med USA och Israel vara skyldiga till dådet, väcker farhågor för att regimen kan använda attacken som en förevändning för att åter slå till hårt mot oppositionella.
