UN Security Council: Iran Violated Resolution 1747

News and Views March 11 – State Department spokesman Robert Wood was questioned about the latest UN Security Council report on Iran. VOA-PNN asked Mr. Wood about the Security Council sanctions committee report, which states that Iran violated Security Council resolutions by attempting to transfer weapons-related material to Syria. Mr. Wood spoke briefly about Security Council resolution 1747, which bans Iran from such activity. He said Iran now has 10 days in which to respond to the committee's letter asking for relevant information regarding the transaction.

Iranian-Israeli Relations Explored in Three-Part Series

News and Views March 11 – PNN reported on the reality of Iran’s economic relationship with Israel. Since Iran’s Islamic Revolution in 1979, its revolutionary government has cut off its diplomatic relations with Israel, threatened to exterminate the Jewish state and showed strong financial and political support for Palestinians. Behind rhetoric, however, lies a different story. In a three-part series, PNN shed light on the clandestine deals between Iran and Israel. During the eight-year Iran-Iraq war, Israel was the primary country providing weapons and parts to Iran. PNN laid out the possible reasons behind Israeli aid to Iran and described the reaction of Arab countries to Iran’s support for Palestinians. The three-part series ran from March 10 through March 12. PNN interviewed Davood Hermidas Bavand, an international relations professor at the University of Tehran, and political analyst Sohrab Sobhani about clandestine arms dealings between Iran, Israel, and the U.S. during the 1980s. Dr. Sobhani stated, “Before the 1979 revolution, Iran was one of Israel's best ‘periphery’ allies in the region. A decade after the regime change in Iran, Israel was still seeking to resume relations with Iran, but as Iran's threats against Israel continued, and especially after Iran's nuclear plans were revealed, Israel's attention has turned from Iran to India and Pakistan.” Mr. Hermidas Bavand focused largely on the issue of Palestine, explaining why Iran’s standpoint in support of Palestinians has been “great pain, little or no gain” for Iran. The professor stated, “This support has also been against the interests of Iran – it has been too costly, and will be too costly as long as it continues. In the meantime, Iran cannot prevent Syria or Palestinians from entering a peace deal with Israel; and most importantly, Arab nations are not grateful to Iran for its support for Palestinians.”

Foreign Minister Mousavi to Run for President

Roundtable March 11 – Former Foreign Minister Mir Houssien Mousavi announced his candidacy for president of Iran today. Elections are scheduled for June of this year. Mr. Mousavi was the prime minister during the Iran–Iraq war and he is considered a strong moderate candidate to challenge sitting President Ahmadinejad. Callers to the show weighed in on the topic of the announcement and gave their opinions regarding the outcome of the election. Many callers expressed that Mr. Mousavi has a better chance of winning the election than former President Mohammad Khatami. However, callers contended that Mr. Mousavi would find it difficult to unseat President Ahmadinejad. Several callers stated that Mr. Khatami already had “his chance” at the presidency and expressed the reasons why Mr. Khatami was not a strong president. One caller stated, “With all that Ahmadinejad has done for the country in the past years, nobody can beat Ahmadinejad.”

Turkey to Act as Diplomatic Bridge for Iran and the U.S.

News and Views March 9 – One day after meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Ankara, Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan said that his nation would consider mediating talks between Iran and the United States. According to Reuter’s news agency, before leaving for Iran to attend a meeting of foreign ministers of the Economic Cooperation Organization in Tehran, Mr. Babacan said that Turkey would weigh any requests from the U.S. or Iran. He called current efforts to open a dialogue an "important opportunity". President Obama has said he is looking for opportunities to engage Iran but that Iran should send positive signals as well. Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Asian Affairs Jeffrey Feltman took part in a teleconference with reporters on Saturday from Damascus, Syria. Mr. Feltman said the engagement is a goal-oriented strategy. The teleconference was designed for both sides to discuss their concerns and then try to bridge the differences. He called the talks constructive and said now both sides would be watching the other for future moves.

Iran Eager to Build on Relations with Armenia

News and Views March 13 – PNN took a new look at the centuries old triangle of relations between Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Iran. Today’s segment focused on Iran’s relations with Armenia after the South Caucus country gained its independence from the Soviet Union. Davood Hermidas Bavand, a professor of International Relations at the University of Tehran, joined PNN to elaborate on the effect of war on Nagorno–Karabakh and the issue of Nakhchivan. Dr. Bavand described how, after the demise of the Soviet Union, Iran tried to create close relations with its new neighbors across its northwestern borders, focusing on the Republics of Azerbaijan and Armenia. He said, “Azerbaijan, despite its religious, linguistic and cultural affinities with Iran, started off by showing aggression toward its southern neighbor.” Because of this, he theorized that Iran turned toward Armenia. As a result, relations between the two nations are growing.

Two-thousand Workers on Ahwaz Pipeline Laid Off

News and Views March 13 – PNN reported low efficiency production levels and the global financial crisis as the prevailing reasons for the shutdown of a factory that produces material for the Ahwaz pipeline. Two-thousand part-time workers were laid off at Rolling and Pipe Mill Corporation (ARPCO) in the southwestern city of Ahwaz on Friday. It was reported that the company owes the laid-off workers at least two months in back pay. The factory has come under scrutiny before for its labor practices. In August of 2008, workers walked out over disagreements regarding unpaid salaries. PNN interviewed a representative of the factory workers who gave his name as Mr. Abbasi. Mr. Abbasi stated, “Despite all the promises made by the president's office to help keep the factory up and running, they shut down the factory.” He added, “During his last visit, Mr. Ahmadinejad granted us a meeting and promised to help us, but now, just a few days before the Persian New Year, they have fired everyone. Our families are falling apart and some of my friends say that their wives have already left them."

Bombing in Abu Ghraib Suburb Kills 33 Civilians

News and Views March 12 – PNN reported that, on Tuesday, an Iraqi reporter and an Iraqi cameraman were among those who were killed in a suicide bombing west of Baghdad. Another TV reporter was critically wounded and three other journalists suffered lesser injuries when the bomber detonated his explosives in a crowd of tribal leaders and senior security officials in a market in Abu Ghraib, killing 33 people. Javanmardi also reported on Mr. Rozhan’s comments regarding the expectations of Turkish and Iranian leaders toward talks with the U.S. Mr. Rozhan is the political and economic editor of a strategic think tank in Ankara and an advisor to Turkey’s president.

Shoe-throwing Journalist Sentenced to Prison

News and Views March 12 – An Iraqi court has sentenced Muntazer al Zaidi, the Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at former President George W. Bush, to three years in prison, according to PNN’s reporter who covers the region. In addition, on the topic of security forces in Iraqi, PNN reported that Iraqi Vice–President Tareq al Hashemi doubts that Iraqi security forces are ready to provide security without assistance by the time U.S. troops withdraw from Iraqi in 2010.

Afghanistan Conference Plans Continue

News and Views March 10 – Agence France Press reports that Afghan President Hamid Karzai is expected to urge Iran to participate in the Afghan Conference proposed by Secretary of State Clinton last week at the NATO meeting in Brussels. The meeting was held for NATO foreign ministers. Yesterday, the Afghan and Pakistani foreign ministers also urged Iran to participate. The foreign ministers are in Tehran for the ECO conference. However, in response to VOA's inquiry at the daily press briefing for more details on the upcoming conference, State Department Spokesman Robert Wood said that the conference has not yet been confirmed. Mr. Wood did say, however, that the U.S. is waiting to hear from other countries that were informed about the conference proposal. Today, Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari urged the West to talk with Iran over its "development of a peaceful nuclear program." IAEA chief Mohamad ElBeradei once again urged Iran to be more transparent about its nuclear program. Speaking at a foreign relations meeting of the Austrian parliament, the IAEA chief also expressed his surprise that no Arab state has yet engaged in official talks with Iran over this issue.

China and U.S. Discuss Tibet, Future of Cooperation

News and Views March 13 – Tibet was the subject of a meeting between President Obama and China’s visiting foreign minister, despite Beijing's criticism that Washington was interfering in its affairs. President Obama and Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi discussed the overall state of the U.S.-China bilateral relationship, emphasizing the desire of both sides to strengthen cooperation and build a positive and constructive U.S.-China relationship.

News and Views March 12 – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton traveled to Beijing, China, to lay a foundation for the Obama administration’s China policy. This was the last stop on Secretary Clinton’s Asia trip and one of the most important. She discussed with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao the North Korean nuclear program, stability and progress in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and Iran’s nuclear program. Premier Jiabao and Secretary Clinton talked about the international financial crisis as well. Secretary Clinton talked about Tibet and human rights and stressed the importance the new U.S. administration attaches to the human rights issue. She said, “The promotion of human rights, as I have said many times before, is an essential aspect of American global policy.” She also said that the Obama administration would look for ways where it can be effective in facilitating people being full participants in their societies.

News and Views March 11 – PNN relayed that the Chinese foreign ministry has expressed strong displeasure over U.S. comments regarding its human rights record in Tibet. A statement by the foreign ministry accused Washington of interfering in China's affairs, adding that it could interfere with U.S.-China relations. The State Department issued a statement today on the 50th anniversary of a failed Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule and appealed to China to open a substantive dialogue with the Dalai Lama's representatives. Residents of Tibet's capital, Lhasa, said Chinese police maintained a heavy street presence Wednesday to prevent protests marking the anniversary of the 1959 uprising. Secretary of State Clinton and Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi are scheduled to meet in Washington this week for talks. The talks come after Chinese naval officials said a U.S. Navy surveillance ship, involved in a standoff Sunday in the South China Sea, was on a spying mission. The U.S. government said Chinese vessels harassed the USNS Impeccable, noting it was using sonar equipment designed to monitor submarines. Washington said China violated international law by taking aggressive action toward the ship in international waters. China has rejected the U.S. claims, saying the USNS Impeccable conducted activities in China's so-called Exclusive Economic Zone without China's permission. Wang Dengping, a Chinese Naval Equipment Officer, stated, "Our navy ship and fishing ships were all inside our territory, involved in normal activities. Navy ships from other countries can pass through our economic territory if they don't conduct harmful acts, but they cannot interfere with the activities of our ships."

University Professor Sentenced to 70 Lashes by Court

NewsTalk March 3 – The discussion focused on the March 6th death of imprisoned political dissident Amir Heshmat Saran, a member of the "National Unity Front," who was arrested and severely beaten during Students Day 2002. He was serving a 16-year prison sentence when he died in prison. His eight–year prison sentence was increased by another eight years because of published articles which described his experiences inside prison. Joining PNN were Paris–based journalist Iraj Fatemi, phone guest Heshmatolah Tabarzadi, who is the leader of the National Unity Front, and human rights activist Elahe Hicks from the New York studio. Farzad Hamidi, a former student activist, was on the phone from Los Angeles. Mr. Hamidi, who came to the U.S. in February, was with Amir Heshmat Saran in the Rajaii–Shahr prison and described the conditions. Iranian human rights organizations hold the Iranian regime responsible for Mr. Saran’s death. Those organizations are urging a United Nations investigation. Guests also briefly commented on a professor at Gorgan University who was sentenced to 70 lashes by a revolutionary court for his criticism of the Ahmadinejad government. Mr. Fatemi denounced the sentence saying, “To criticize the government is one of the basic rights for French people.” Mr. Fatemi spoke about the professor, who is also a veteran of the Iran–Iraq war, and stated, “We feel sorry when we see a person who lost his hands or his legs in the war with Iraq and he is convicted to 70 lashes just because he criticized the government.”
Brazil Set to Become a Top American Trading Partner

News and Views March 13 – Thomas Shannon, the assistant secretary of state for Europe and Eurasia, briefed reporters at the State Department about Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Da Silva’s visit to the White House on Saturday. Mr. Shannon described the meeting as an opportunity for the two countries to strengthen bilateral, regional and international relations. According to the Associated Press, President Da Silva carried messages from his Latin American counterparts, including a call from Cuba to drop the U.S. embargo; an olive branch extended in peace from Venezuela and Bolivia; and calls for free trade with Colombia. Brazil continues to play an increasingly important role as a trading partner with the U.S. – Brazilian imports of U.S. goods has grown by approximately 30% over the last three years to $74 billion a year. Economists expect Brazil will become one of America’s most important trading partners over the next decade.

Mixed Intelligence on Iran’s Defense Capabilities

News and Views March 11– Testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair and Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lieutenant General Michael Maples said Iran has not produced the highly enriched uranium necessary for a nuclear weapon and they believe that Iran has not made a firm decision to do so. This assessment contrasts with a stark Israeli warning days earlier that Iran has crossed the "technological threshold" in its pursuit of the bomb. Iran recently announced its first space launch and on Sunday said that it had successfully tested an air–to–surface missile with a 70–mile range. Maples said the launch of the Safir space vehicle "does advance their knowledge and their ability to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile," but he and Blair said there might be no connection between the country's development of missiles and any ambition to have nuclear weapons.
Capitol Hill Report

News and Views March 11– The U.S. approved a $410 billion bill to fund most of the government through September 30, 2009, sending it to President Obama despite republican objections to the price tag. After a contentious fight, the senate approved the bill. It also begins to roll back strict limits on travel and trade with Cuba –– a move President Obama supports.

News and Views March 12 – PNN reported on a hearing by the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on International Monetary Policy and Trade to discuss the Iran Sanctions Enabling Act of 2009. The hearing focused on whether imposing further economic pressure can effectively elicit a change in the Iranian government's behavior on issues such as human rights and its nuclear program. New York Congressman Gregory Meeks, the subcommittee's chairman, hoped that the legislation would be "part of a comprehensive diplomatic strategy to head off security threats while also engaging the Iranian people to forge a new chapter in our bilateral relationship." The Iran Sanctions Enabling Act would authorize, among other things, state and local governments to divest from Iran. At least ten states have already enacted Iran divestment legislation, but most legal experts agree that without federal authorization such measures violate the Constitution.

PNN International Premiere “Moon Sun Flower Game”

News and Views March 14 – PNN acquired the rights to broadcast Hossein Mansouri’s documentary “Moon Sun Flower Game.” The documentary details the life of Mr. Mansouri’s mother Forough Farrokhzad. Forough was a poet and producer and she adopted Mr. Mansouri from a leper colony when he was a small child. She raised her son in pre–revolutionary Tehran. In 1962, the young poet visited the leper colony to make the film “The House is Black,” which received international acclaim. Mr. Mansouri’s documentary begins in the leper colony of northern Iran, winding its way through the streets of Mr. Mansouri’s life and concluding in Munich’s west end where a poet in exile discovers his own roots. The special broadcast began with excerpts from PNN's exclusive interview with Hossein Mansouri followed by the full documentary which is in German and Farsi with English subtitles. This was the first international broadcast of the documentary.

Music and Entertainment Notes

Late Edition March 14 – Late Edition reviewed a book written by Molly Haskell, who introduced one of the earliest versions of feminist-conscious film criticism in "From Reverence to Rape: The Treatment of Women in the Movies" (1974). Ms. Haskell has published a new book in which she explores the power and portrayal of women in the American classic film "Gone with the Wind". In this book, "Frankly My Dear: Gone with the Wind Revisited", Ms. Haskell dissected Scarlett O'Hara's powerful and feminine personality and explained why her story kept such a tenacious hold on the American national imagination for almost 70 years. PNN showed some memorable clips of “Gone with the Wind” and discussed the significance of the scenes. In PNN's “Book Club” Weblog, PNN viewers can find a comprehensive profile of Molly Haskell along with a detailed description of her works at http://pnnketab.blogspot.com

Late Edition March 11 – Childhood friends and colleagues Behrouz Bahmani and Kameron Douraghy joined Late Edition from San Francisco on Thursday. While working on the “Truth” anti-smoking campaign, Behrouz and Kameron created a customized comic book targeting Asian American teenagers who smoke. The project proved to be very successful with more than a million issues being printed and distributed. After a few years of research, translation and adaptation, they put together their first series of stories suited for the creation of the books. The stories are modeled after the Ferdowsi technique of adding double entendre to the main story in order to convey another level of meaning. This project utilized the graphic novel medium to introduce an important Persian literary work to two very important audiences – comic book readers of the world and the young Iranian diaspora.

Late Edition March 13
– Viewers were treated to an interview with Iranian rock musician Kaveh Yaghmaie from Vancouver on Friday. He is the eldest son of Iranian legendary singer Kourosh Yaghmaie. Kaveh started learning music at the age of eight when he began attending the prestigious Tehran Conservatory of Music. He also played guitar with his father. Kaveh played his first concert in Iran after the Islamic Revolution and is one of the most popular Iranian rock musicians and singers. Kaveh described the pressure felt by censorship laws and why he immigrated to Canada to work as a free artist.

Late Edition March 14
– Director and producer Masoud Assadolahi reviewed important events in the history of Iranian cinema. Mr. Assadolahi lives and works as a TV and radio producer in Los Angeles and was a well-known Iranian director who produced many films and plays in Iran – leaving the country after the Islamic Revolution. He discussed the controversy of Hollywood actress Golshifteh Farahani; the academy members’ trip to Tehran; the Islamic Republic’s criticism against movies such as “300” and “Wrestler;” the presidential election in Iran; and the reaction of Iranian artists to candidates. He said there is no freedom of expression in Iran and he criticized the government for its Islamic policies and the censorship in cinema.

This Week on the History Channel…
The continuing story of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the reluctant president, started our week. President Eisenhower was the 34th president and he was elected shortly after the end of World War II. The third of seven sons born to an Abilene, Kansas couple, he went from his humble beginnings in the Midwest on to West Point, served under General McArthur and became the Allied Supreme Commander of the troops in Europe in 1944. He was a complex man but a man who loved peace. Next, we meet Michelangelo the artist and man.

Michelangelo Buonarrotie is the most famous and some would say the greatest artistic genius who ever lived. He is especially known for many masterpieces including the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican and the statue of David that stands in a museum in Florence, Italy. Michelangelo was a lonely and tortured man whose personal and financial life suffered as he created his art. MICHELANGELO: ARTIST AND MAN revealed the truth about these perceptions and examined his genius.

Finally, the name ROCKERFELLER is synonymous with wealth, power and prestige in America. The History Channel examined the genealogy, finance and politics of this iconic American family. George Armstrong Custer, heroic Civil War cavalry commander and controversial Indian fighter, was the subject of GEORGE ARMSTRONG CUSTER: AMERICA'S GOLDEN CAVALIER, part one.

Viewer Perspectives

A Roundtable viewer writes: “Tonight I listened to your remarks on VOA Persian Service. I found them quite informative. What I found most interesting was your remarks about the historical connection between the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic political movements in Iran. So, I simply want to thank you for your illuminating observations.”

A male-viewer of Today’s Woman writes: “I was following your discussion yesterday and I would like to bring this point as a man who is not against women rights. There are certain rights, which are different for men and women in Iran. One of them is the religious view of the rights that we have to confront it bravely. We can’t hope to bring equality in every small town of Iran as it is in Tehran. Religious view is very strong and small towns are super-conservative. If we think of a divorce in small town, the son will be given to husband after divorce. If the man is the bread-winner, the son will be given to his grandfather and his uncle because he has father’ blood and poor mother gets nothing – it is all in the religion. Also in small towns, most women are conservative and religious. I have a daughter and I love her, but I hate myself. In Iranian society if people say anything against your wife, daughter or sister and you can’t fight it; it means that you are a coward if you can’t say anything.”

Alex from Tehran writes:
“The information given out by VOA about the political prisoners can be construed as one of the main reasons for their release from Iranian prisons. In many cases, the VOA action has led to the rescinding of execution orders of the prisoners. Hereby I would like to thank you.”

Alireza from Orumieh:
“A piece of news– A few days ago, when Ahmadinejad was passing through the streets of Orumieh City, and waving his hand towards the people, someone threw his shoes at him. Security officers tried to find him, but couldn’t. This type of “welcome” of the people caused Ahmadinejad to speed out of the area!”

Amin from Iran:
“I am writing to tell the people not to worry about the extensive financial corruption in the government, such as the loss of one billion Dollars, the scandal of monthly overpayments by people for gas, etc. Because these monies are paid to the authorities who make their best efforts, round the clock, to stop the American spies, to detain the students, to harass the human rights activists, to eradicate the religious minorities and to suppress the freedom of people!

Saied from Tehran: “In democratic regimes a government authority who is accused of corruption is obliged to defend or to resign. But, in Iran if an officials is accused, his/her case is handled privately by the courts, and nobody shall find out the verdict. On the other hand, if a woman is raped, the woman, and not the rapist, is accused and put under trial and punished!”

Sahar from Tehran:
“Charity begins at home. In Iran, it is the contrary. Authorities only think about Palestinians, Iraqi and Lebanese, and involvement in their affairs; and not thinking about their own people.”

Human from Karaj writes: “During the last 30 years, the Islamic Regime has offered nothing to its people except economic and social poverty, killings, and addiction. This government has always been the “originator” of tension. So how should we expect such a Regime to bring us peace and tranquility?”

A 16 year old Today’s Woman viewer writes: “I would like to say my regards to all the hosts of Today’s Woman: Hamideh, Mahshid and Reza. I hope you are doing well. As a woman, or a girl, on March 8 I gave out sweets in the classroom and the office. Also I distributed brochures about women among teachers and students at school. I felt very happy after I did it. Also I went out and I gave out more brochures to people, but what is the outcome? However, I am hoping that one day we will celebrate equality and freedom in Iran. Thank you for your good shows. Parniyaan, 16, Kurdistan – Iran”

Naghmeh from Germany writes: “Salaam Hamideh aziz, I am very grateful that you responded to my email. I watched your show about the godson of Faroukhzad and I was so much impressed. I live in Frankfurt, Germany and I would like to get in touch with Hossein Mansouri. Is it possible to put me in touch with him? Also if you need anything from Germany, please let me know, I’ll help you with it. Naghmeh”

A Roundtable viewer writes: “Tonight I listened to your remarks on VOA Persian Service. I found them quite informative. What I found most interesting was your remarks about the historical connection between the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic political movements in Iran. So, I simply want to thank you for your illuminating observations.”

A Today’s Woman viewer suggests: “Salaam for all, I would like to thank you for your nice shows and great hosts. I am following up with your shows and lately I became fan of Friday’s show because of the topic of love and marriage. I watch this show on regular basis. I have a critic or suggestion: past Friday, the show was about healthy and unhealthy love. I think it was very good topic, but I think with the breaks and short timing of the show, such topics which raises curiosity and creates questions in minds of the viewers, you should provide enough information on such topics. I suggest that you give more time for these topics so that the audience understands the point and it doesn’t lead to any kind of conflict in the relationships.”
