Arusi: Persian Wedding

Arusi Persian Wedding Trailer from Agency|2.0 on Vimeo.

“The last time my brother and I went to Iran was in 1977. I was three and he was seven. Soon after that, Iran and the U.S. broke off all ties, and it became impossible for us to go back.” —Marjan Tehrani

For filmmaker Marjan Tehrani and her brother Alex, growing up Iranian American meant that political tensions often impacted their personal lives. Iran and the U.S. broke off their political relationship more than 25 years ago, but still engage in a public war of words and threats. With travel to Iran nearly impossible for many years, Alex and Marjan were stuck interpreting the mostly negative images of Iran in the American media, a conflict that shaped their identities.

When the Tehranis are finally granted their Iranian passports, Alex, a photographer, and his American bride, Heather, an art gallery administrator, decide to make a trip from New York City to Iran to have a Persian wedding—just as Alex’s own Iranian father and American mother did in 1968, when Iran and the U.S. were still allies. But traveling to Iran is complicated. As the couple prepares to leave, they must face the mixed reactions of their parents and friends, reports of war in the Middle East, bureaucratic headaches and their own nerves. In ARUSI PERSIAN WEDDING, Marjan accompanies Alex and Heather and documents their journey on film. Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

Safieh Sadeghi: Prisoner of the day


Sentenced to 15 years in prison

The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran: A local source told the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran that Branch One of Sanandaj Revolutionary Court under Judge Babaei has sentenced Safieh Sadeghi, 23, a resident of Salmas, to 15 years in prison on charges of „moharebeh“ (enmity with God) through membership in the opposition PJAK group.

According to the human rights source, security forces from Sanandaj Intelligence Office arrested Safieh Sadeghi in November 2010. She was transferred to the Intelligence Ministry’s Detention Center in Sanandaj, where she was interrogated for 4.5 months. Sadeghi was denied telephone calls or visitation with her family, and she was kept in solitary cells in order to extract confessions from her. The source further reported that for the first few days after her arrest, Safieh Sadeghi was severely beaten.

The source also told the Campaign that this political prisoner was deprived from selecting her own lawyer, and that her 15-year prison term was a result of a few minutes long court meeting at Branch One of Sanandaj Revolutionary Court. Safieh Sadeghi is currently inside the Sanandaj Women’s Prison.

The Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili said Tuesday any wrong movement by western countries would affect the result of talks.

Saeed Jalili

Iran’s top negotiator expressed hope after two days of talks in Moscow that members of P5+1 change their previous approach and take steps in cooperation with Iran.

Jalili added Iran has already announced after Baghdad talks that holding meeting among experts would lead to success in further talks and by writing different letters took steps in this regard.

He stressed that during Moscow talks it was agreed that expert-level meeting would be held after negotiations.

Jalili referred to first round of Moscow talks, saying this round of talks were held more seriously and real, during which Iran offered suggestions and stressed the enrichment right of the country.

„Based on legal documents we proved that many actions carried out against Iran are illegal and we clearly explained why the UN resolution is not legal, „he stressed. Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

US: 17 Governments Complicit in Human Trafficking

Source: VOA

The U.S. State Department says 17 countries are doing almost nothing to fight human trafficking and may be complicit in such crimes.

Trafficking in Persons Report 2012

In its annual human trafficking report, the State Department calls those 17 nations countries of origin, transit, or destinations for such crimes as sex slavery, forced labor, and recruiting child soldiers.

At a ceremony announcing the report, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she prefers to use the term „modern slavery“ instead of trafficking.

„I think labeling this for what it is, slavery, has brought it to another dimension. Trafficking, when I first used to talk about it all those years ago, for a while people used to wonder if I was talking about road safety, what we needed to do to improve transportation systems. But slavery, there is no mistaking what it is, what it means, what it does.“

Clinton said 27 million people around the world are victims of modern slavery. Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

Iran nuclear negotiations set to continue in Turkey

Nuclear negotiations between Iran and the world powers came to an end in Moscow with no breakthroughs, except for a tense agreement to meet again next month in Turkey.

The Iranian negotiating delegation was led by Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili (right), and the P5+1 group was headed by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.

Catherine Ashton, the EU foreign policy chief, announced after talks ceased that both sides had agreed to supply further clarifications at the next meeting in Istanbul, as well as technical studies of each other’s position, which will be prepared by Ashton’s deputy and the deputy to Saeed Jalili, Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator.

Ashton said: „We have begun to tackle the critical issues; however, it remains clear there are significant gaps between the substance of the two positions.“ Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

Report Says U.S., Israel Targeted Iran With ‚Flame‘ Virus

Source: RFE/RL

There’s been no official reaction yet to a “Washington Post” report saying the United States and Israel jointly developed a computer virus called „Flame“ aimed at disrupting Iran’s nuclear program.

The June 19 report, citing Western officials, said the development of the malware, discovered last month on computers used by the Iranian Oil Ministry, began five years ago.

The report said the U.S. National Security Agency and the CIA worked with Israel’s military on the project.

The report said the malware, described as the most sophisticated cyberweapon to be exposed to date, penetrated targeted computers by posing as a Microsoft update.

The report says the program monitored Iran’s computer network, sending information back to its controllers about what the computers did, including copying documents, logging keystrokes, taking screen shots, and even activating computer microphones and cameras.

‚Preparing The Battlefield‘

According to the report, the “Flame” virus was designed to collect intelligence “in preparation for cybersabotage aimed at slowing Iran’s ability to develop a nuclear weapon.”

The campaign included the use of destructive software such as the „Stuxnet“ worm, which was discovered in 2010 and designed to cause malfunctions in Iran’s uranium-enrichment operation.

The U.S. newspaper quoted one former high-ranking U.S. intelligence official as saying: „This is about preparing the battlefield for another type of covert action.“

“Cybercollection against the Iranian program is way further down the road“ than just “Flame” and “Stuxnet,” the former official added.

Unilateral Operation

“Flame” came to light after Iran detected a series of cyberattacks against its oil industry.

According to a number of U.S. and Western officials quoted in the report, this disruption was directed by Israel in a unilateral operation that apparently caught its U.S. partners off guard.

The Russian-based security company Kaspersky Lab reported last week that “Flame” contained some of the same code as “Stuxnet.”

This overlap was described as evidence that the teams responsible for the two sets of malware worked together.

Recently, a “New York Times” investigation, based on interviews with American, European, and Israeli officials, had singled out the United States as being responsible for “Stuxnet.” But it also said the cyberweapon had been developed in cooperation with Israel.

The disclosure about the malware follows this week’s failure in Moscow of the latest round of talks between Iran and six world powers — including the United States — over the Iranian nuclear program and Iran’s refusal to halt uranium enrichment work that could be directed toward development of an atomic weapon.

Iran denies allegations it is pursuing a nuclear weapon.
