1515 GMT: Your Tehran Friday Prayer Summary. Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami took the podium today to say that Iran had inspired the “Islamic Awakening” throughout the Middle East and should continue this role.
Having given this assurance, Khatami condemned the “fake Zionist regime” occupying Palestinian territory as a “cancerous tumour” seeking to “remain permanently in the body of Islamic countries to threaten the nation and region”. And he was no more kinder to Saudi Arabia, which its own people and supported dictators in Bahrain and Yemen as they became “a hell of repression and looting by security people”.
NewsCore: ”The first Iranian nuclear power station is inherently unsafe and will probably cause a ‘tragic disaster for humankind,’ according to a document apparently written by an Iranian whistleblower. There is a ‘great likelihood’ that the Bushehr reactor could generate the next nuclear catastrophe after Chernobyl or Fukushima, says the document, which has been passed to The (London) Times by a reputable source and is attributed to a former member of the legal department of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran. It claims that Bushehr, which began operating last month after 35 years of intermittent construction, was built by ‘second-class engineers’ who bolted together Russian and German technologies from different eras; that it sits in one of the world’s most seismically active areas but could not withstand a major earthquake; and that it has ‘no serious training program’ for staff or a contingency plan for accidents.”http://t.uani.com/qsdghD

Sollte das Todesurteil gegen Youcef Nadarkhani vollstreckt werden, wäre der Pastor seit 20 Jahren der erste Konvertit, der im Iran wegen seines Glaubens hingerichtet würde.
Fulda-Teheran, 07.10.2011 (KAP) Die Deutsche Bischofskonferenz (DBK) hat am Freitag vom Iran die “unverzügliche Freilassung” des evangelikalen Pfarrers Youcef Nadarkhani gefordert. Nadarkhani war am 22. September 2010 vom Revolutionsgericht in Rasht wegen “Abfalls vom Islam” und “Verbreitung nichtislamischer Lehren” zum Tod verurteilt worden. Ein anderes Gericht hatte kürzlich festgestellt, dass der Pfarrer vor seiner Konversion zum Christentum Muslim gewesen sei. Das Urteil kann jederzeit vollstreckt werden.
Stop Fundamentalism – Considering the major role the internet and social media played in flaring up popular protests in the Middle East and North Africa since the rigged presidential elections in Iran back in 2009, dictators in the region are now attempting more and more to block access to open internet by their citizens.

The wives of most Iranian politicians are almost invisible on Iran’s political scene. Iranian leaders seem to believe that a good and honorable wife is someone who stays away as much as possible from the public sphere.
