Iran: Shirin Ebadi on War

Abtahi, reformist politician, blogger & cleric, says Shirin Ebadi, Peace Nobel Prize laureate, in a press conference, has condemned any military intervention in Iran. Abtahi writes he, of course, expected such words from Mrs. Ebadi, but he does not understand why she boycotted presidential election? Did not she think with a different outcome in presidential election, war and economic sanctions would be less likely today?(Persian)
