Human Rights, Non Violence Library & Christmas

Cheraghyekhamoush (Turned off lights) talks about Ahmadinejad’s, recent proposition to Europeans about human rights. According to Iranian President, whose government is under pressure for human rights abuses, Iran can send delegation to European countries to report about human rights including political prisoners, women’s rights and so on in European countries. Europe, in its turn, can send its own delegation to Iran. At the end, world can judge both reports!!!! Bolgger says why we don’t start observation in Iran where 100 newspaper were banned in a couple of years or why nobody wants to report about Ganji and other political prisoners. Blogger asks will Iranian journals have right to publish European reports about human rights abuses in Iran or only journals will publish Iranian delegation’s point of views. The last but not least, he says, according to Iranian government, European can visit our political prisoners without any problem but they forget that Ganji’s wife was not able to visit her husband for months!!!!!

Fanous, a collective blog, has launched a non violence library. In their library you can find books, such as Gene Sharp’s ‘‘From Dictatorship to Democracy”, in Persian and English, to download and links to institutions such as Albert Einstein institution. It is a kind of peace promotion blog.

Apparently there are other peace seeker bloggers such as Abtahi, former Vice President, who talks about Christmas:

“Besides the fact that Jesus Christ is a great prophet respected by all of us, his main slogan is peace and friendship which humanity more than ever needs it at present. The nature of religions is basically inviting people to kindness and friendship. This is contrary to the situation existing now when violence has become the voice of religions”.
