Iran behaving badly

1 12 2009

So Iran is finally showing its real face to the world. They are building 10 new nuclear facilities without any approval from IAEA. In fact, this is in clear violation of international laws and regulations. Ahmedinejad is trying to go all out in brutally suppressing the dissidents and also taking a stern action against international peace mediators.

His policy is nothing short of a disaster for Iran. Coupled with Iran’s role in Yemenite insurgency and attacks against Saudi Arabia, a mini war might happen soon in this region. And that would put an end to world peace. This would happen because of theocratic government of Iran and the dictatorship of Nejad.

24 08 2009

As we discussed earlier, Malaysia is on a way backward. Although Malaysia is not an overwhelmingly Muslim country, non-Muslims are forced to adhere to Islamic principles. As for the Muslims, some people are trying to impose Taliban-style shariah in the Malay land. These people, with some hidden support from certain government quarters, are waging a war against Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Read the rest of this entry »

Will Afghan elections change anything?

17 08 2009

Afghans will go to polls on August 20 — for a second time in five years — to elect their president. Although the country has hardly any democratic structure, the second parliamentary elections have at least paved the way for a future of democracy on this troubled land. But is that such a simple thing? Additionally, the complex nature of Afghanistan and the rising tide of Taliban have further complicated the matters. Read the rest of this entry »

This is Iran

14 08 2009

As if the arrests of thousands of protesters was not enough, the authoritarian regime has started raping and executing the inmates. There have been some reports that Iranian regime has brutally executed some protesters. Additionally, dozens or even hundreds have been raped by the Islamic police. This list include both men and women.

Now is not that interesting? Iranian law has a provision to execute homosexuals but on the other hand, their police rape the inmates. Is not that shameful double standards? Read the rest of this entry »
