آمپول تقویتی ۶ میلیارد دلاری خامنه‌ای به بشار اسد

خبرگزاری رویترز گزارش داده است که رهبر جمهوری اسلامی با کمک ۵/۸ میلیاد دلاری ایران به حکومت سوریه موافقت کرده است. این کمک برای مقابله با اثر اعتصب‌های گسترده بر دولت سوریه است.

به گزارش خبرگزاری رویترز، سوریه که تنها مقاماتش به واسطه تحریم‌های بین‌المللی دچار محدودیت‌هایی شده‌اند، اما مشکلات داخلی به خاطر اعتصب‌ فضا را بر مردم تنگ‌تر کرده است.

در این وضعیت، جمهوری اسلامی ایران به داد متحد خود در خاورمیانه افتاد.

روزنامه فرانسوی «لز اکو» دیروز براساس خبری از مرکز تحقیقات استراتژیک اعلام کرد که آیت‌الله خامنه‌ای با این وام موفقیت کرده است.

کمک ایران به سوریه در حال انجام می‌شود که نمایش فیلم‌هایی از کشته شدن نگهبانان سوریه باعث به هم خوردن رابطه تعدادی از کشورها با سوریه شده است.

Abandoned to the Burning Sands: Surviving Iranian Refugees in al-Waleed Camp, Iraq Call Out from the Desert

(the first in a series regarding the situation of Iranian refugees and their children surviving in the desert in Iraq near the Syrian border, abandoned for a lifetime by the UNHCR and responsible governments).      

During the long years of the Iran-Iraq war (1980-1988), in an effort to extinguish all resistance to its authority, the Islamic Republic of Iran fought not only against Iraq, but against Iranian people in a war that Khomeini called the Sacred Defense. The rest of the world should not recognize that «Sacred Defense» as anything other than planned genocide of the people in Kurdistan, Iran, who have never recognized the Islamic Republic as the legitimate government of Iran. It was a «God-sent» tool the regime used to establish a barbaric rule over the freedom-loving and peaceful people of Iran.

Subjected to the strife of daily shellings and attacks during these years, thousands of Iranian Kurds were forced to abandon their homes and livelihoods and flee into Iraq to seek refuge. These asylum-seekers were relocated by the Iraqi government to the al-Tash Camp in the desert in al-Ramadi City, the center of al-Anbar Province, Iraq.

Over the years, from the 1980s until 2005, this group of more than 10,000 Iranian Kurds seeking refuge suffered a 50 percent mortality rate as they fought a war of attrition against suffering, injustice, and homelessness. These were years of hunger and sickness during which fathers and mothers witnessed their children perish. These children are among the estimated 5,000 refugees who lie in marked and unmarked graves in a burial ground near the al-Tash Camp.                                                             

After the United States invaded Iraq in 2003, the al-Tash Camp became an even more dangerous place: a large number of al-Qaeda forces, ex-Baathists, and agents of the Islamic Republic of Iran infiltrated al-Tash. Dozens of the refugees were killed by these armed terrorist groups; in 2005, around 200 of the survivors fled for their lives, this time to the border of Jordan, where they attempted to seek asylum once more, this time from the insufferable and violent conditions in Iraq.

However, in contravention of international law the Jordanian government denied the group their right to Jordan as asylum-seekers. Instead, they were forced to survive in a makeshift camp in a desolate, desertified No Man’s Land in the border region between Iraq and Jordan. Community members report that they were attacked by the Jordanian army at the camp, and that many, including pregnant women, were injured during this attack. The refugees survived in tents and subsisted on supplies donated by passing travellers; there was no possibility for making a livelihood in the desert.

In July 2009, UNHCR arranged for the group to be moved from the desert wasteland of No Man’s Land to the desert wasteland of al-Waleed Camp, at Iraq’s border with Syria. In interviews, members of the group recall promises made to them by UNHCR on the day before the group was relocated to al-Waleed. Azad Javanmiri notes that «Mr. Daniel Endres, the UNHCR representative in Iraq, promised us on 4 July 2009, that after moving us to al-Waleed camp they will re-interview every refugee over the age of 18 years old, and after that they will submit our cases for resettlement in 3 stages: first, those who have medical problems (medical cases); second, those who have families in European countries (family reunification); and third, those cases who are completely political and do not fall into the first or second category.» Needless to say, the promises made to this group of Iranian Kurds – among whom are about 70 members of a persecuted minority religion called «Ahl-e-Haq» or Yarsan – were never fulfilled.

This is not to say that none of the refugees at al-Waleed were assisted by UNHCR and various governments. When this group of Iranian Kurds was transferred to al-Waleed on 5 July 2009, there were 1,500 Palestinian asylum-seekers in the camp. Soon after the Iranian Kurds arrived, a group of about 170 Iranian Arabs known as Ahwazis were also transferred to the camp; the population of the camp reached nearly 2,000. As of today, only around 200 Palestinians remain in the camp, the rest having been resettled in a safe third country, primarily the United States; those remaining are also expected to be resettled. Of the Ahwazis, 90 remain, with a number of families reportedly having received acceptance from a third country. (reference) The only group for whom the process of finding a secure, durable solution has stopped in its entirety is that of the 173 Iranian Kurds surviving – not living – in al-Waleed.

Residents of the camp report that UNHCR has not given any answer to any of the Kurdish asylum-seekers, who have been informed recently that the al-Waleed camp will be closed and the Iranian Kurds will be moved to Iraqi Kurdistan – a move that the group flatly objects to. Iraq, which generates more refugees than any other country in the world except Afghanistan, is not safe and cannot be considered a durable solution for any refugee. Their demand and their right is resettlement to a safe third country.

While the Palestinians and many of the Iranian Ahwazis have been resettled to safe third countries, this group of Iranian Kurds is being subjected to racist policies, supported by UNHCR, which determine who should be resettled in a safe part of the world and who should be left behind in war-torn, violent Iraq. The Iranian Kurds have been told by UNHCR that because they are Kurdish, they will be forced to stay in Iraq. UNHCR calls this policy «integration with the local population.» But determining who lives in safety, or who continues to suffer rightslessness and lack of security, on the basis of ethnicity can be stated much more parsimoniously. It is called, simply, «racism.»

Given the news that al-Waleed camp would close without an acceptable solution being found for this group – nearly half of whom were born in the refugee camps and have known no other life than misery, desperation, and injustice – the Kurds in the camp have been involved in a sit-in in front of the UNHCR offices in the camp for more than a month

Appallingly, residents of the camp report that Iraqi forces – invited to the camp at the request of UNHCR staff – attacked the camp in their attempt to force an end to the extended hunger strike of two girls under the age of 18. Azad Javanmiri states that on 23 June 2011, Iraqi forces invited by UNHCR entered the camp, brandishing weapons and using physical violence. They forced the two girls on hunger strike into an ambulance against their will; they were later force-fed at a hospital. When the women in the camp witnessed the violence transpiring, they attempted to talk to the UNHCR staffperson who called the Iraqi forces into the camp. Rather than address their justified concerns, he instead got into his car and pushed through the group of refugees, injuring two women in the process: 20-year-old Farida Javanmiri’s right hand was broken in this incident, and Fereshteh Nazari, a mother of 6 children, was also injured.

A lifetime of forced displacement. No education, no job, no rights, not enough food. Too much death. These are people who have been abandoned for a lifetime to the burning desert sands, in the hopes that the world would forget about them. But instead of accepting even one more day of injustice, they have raised their voices and called out from the desert to the world. They ask for nothing more than their basic rights. Azad says, «We are human, and we want to live like humans.»

The Committee to Support the People of al-Waleed Camp (*) support the demands of the residents:

1- Immediate resettlement of the refugees to a safe third country.

2- Staff of UNHCR stationed at al-Waleed must be held responsible for the attack on the camp.

3- Appropriate services must be provided immediately, including adequate food rations, schooling for children in the appropriate language, and quality medical for residents of the camp, with particular attention paid to those injured by UNHCR staff.

We ask you to also support their demands, and advocate for them by writing, calling and faxing key decisionmakers and demanding that the rights of the Iranian Kurds in al-Waleed Camp be upheld. A sample letter that you can modify and send appears below, along with the email addresses for the relevant decisionmakers.

SAMPLE LETTER

To the Foreign Minister/Secretary of State,

I am writing to you with regard to the intolerable situation of the Iranian Kurd refugees in al-Waleed Camp, Iraq.

The people living in this camp have suffered an entire lifetime of displacement, violence, and rightslessness, having fled Iran in the 1980s, and having survived unspeakable circumstances in Iraq over the course of the past two decades

Their current situation – living in tents in a burning desert at the Iraq-Syria border, without access to education or work or even sufficient food, with complete lack of security – is at root due to the genocidal crimes of the Islamic Republic of Iran. UNHCR also bears its full share of responsibility for failing to uphold even the most basic of rights for the camp’s Iranian Kurd residents. And the United States and the coalition governments also must own their share of responsibility for their situation: theirs are among the millions of lives that have been shattered as a direct result of the most recent war of choice in Iraq.

I therefore urgently request that your government take the lead in upholding the fundamental rights of these refugees from Iran. These refugees have a fundamental human right to asylum and protection. I ask your government to coordinate the immediate resettlement of the Iranian Kurds from al-Waleed Camp in Iraq to a safe third country.

Sincerely,

[your name]

URGENT: Elderly, Other Iranian Refugees Brutally Beaten in Detention in Aftermath of Cyprus Explosion

UNHCR, EU must take immediate action regarding the abuse of Iranian refugees in Cyprus

15 July 2011, Washington, DC — On Tuesday, 12 July, 2011, activists from the Cyprus Refugee Rights Movement report that approximately 35 police officers, migration agents, and CID agents poured into the Larnaca detention center and violently assaulted the Iranian asylum seekers. In the attack, the Cypriot authorities used tasers, batons and brass knuckles to brutally beat the Iranian refugees, including an eldery 72-year old Baha’i asylum-seeker, Bagher Ebrahimzadeh, who is being held in solitary confinement after the beatings.                                                                                                                                                                                           

A number of other Iranian refugees were injured, and there is a report of at least one broken leg. During the attack, the Cypriot authorities pulled out their handguns and put them in front of the refugees› faces and threatened them one by one, while accusing the «Iranians» of causing the recent devastating explosion in Cyprus that has killed at least 12 people. The names of the injured include Omid Ebrahimzadeh; Mohammad Khosh Sorour; Mostafee Taghilou, who reports a broken leg as a result of the beatings; and Bagher Ebrahimzadeh.

All asylum-seekers who were attacked in Larnaca detention by the Cypriot authorities require urgent international assistance in being removed from this facility. If their detention is for no other reason than issues relating to migration status, they must be immediately released and transferred, with the urgent assistance of UNHCR, to a safe third country.

We demand immediate investigation of prison and detention conditions in Cyprus by the International Red Cross. We express particularly urgent concern regarding the medical condition and care of 72-year-old Bagher Ebrahimzadeh, held in solitary after being beaten, and Mostafee Taghilou, whose leg is reported broken.

In addition to ensuring the immediate removal from the Larnaca detention center of all Iranian asylum-seekers, as their lives remain at risk; and ensuring their resettlement from Cyprus to a safe third country, as they clearly have basis for fearing political persecution by the Cypriot government; UNHCR must immediately and urgently review its practices in Cyprus and recognize that refugees are a population targeted by the Cypriot government and in need of special protocols.

We demand that the Cypriot government be held accountable immediately at level of the European Union. We have no confidence in the juridical system of the government of Cyprus, which seems to engage in direct and structural violence against asylum-seekers as a matter of policy. A case against the government of Cyprus should be brought directly at the level of the EU Court of Human Rights.

Members of the ICRIR include Action for Democracy and Human Rights in the Middle East, International Federation for Iranian Refugees, Iranian Refugees Action Network, Iranian Refugee Amnesty Network, and Mission Free Iran.

LETTER-WRITING ACTION:

We ask concerned people to write to the International Red Cross, UNHCR, EU, and foreign ministries regarding this crime against Iranian refugees in Cyprus. Email addresses and webform links appear below the sample letter.

To Whom It May Concern:

The Cypriot government’s ongoing, well-documented abuse of refugees, asylum-seekers, and immigrants has now culminated in a brutal attack on defenseless detained Iranian refugees by armed Cypriot authorities in Larnaca detention center on 12 July 2011. This is criminal and it is simply unacceptable at any level, no less for a country that is a member of the European Union.

I demand immediate investigation of prison and detention conditions in Cyprus by the International Red Cross.

Further, UNHCR must confer immediate protection on those attacked and ensure their rapid resettlement to a safe third country, as they clearly have basis for fearing political persecution by the Cypriot government.

Finally, I demand that the Cypriot government be held accountable immediately at level of the European Union, and a case against the government of Cyprus should be brought directly at the level of the EU Court of Human Rights.

Sincerely,

شباهتهاي يک بسيجي ذوب شده درولايت و گوسفند!

هر دو پشم دارن-هر دو عقل ندارن-هر دو یه چوپان بالای سرشون!

بازار داغ نخستين ويديوی آموزش جنسی در ايران

صدای آمریکا : سايت خبری ديلی بيست (Daily Beast) زير عنوان «دی وی دی آموزش جنسی، جنس داغ ايران» گزارش بابک دهقانپيشه خبرنگار نيوزويک در خاورميانه در باره مجیوبيت گسترده نخستين فيلم آموزشی جنسی درايران را را نقل کرده است که معتقد است موفقيت اين فيلم گويای عطش مردم به اطلاعات در جمهوری اسلامی است.

گزارش با اين مقدمه آغاز می شود که تابستان امسال جنس داغ و پرفروش در داروخانه های تهران داروهای ضد آلرژی يا ويتامين ث نيست بلکه يک (DVD) دی وی دی آموزشی جنسی بنام آشنای محبوب است که برای اولين بار در جمهوری اسلامی عرضه می شود، و به سرعت قفسه ها را پر و خالی می کند.

داروفروش داروخانه ای در مرکز شهر، که خواسته است به لحاظ حساسيت موضوع معرفی نشود، با خنده می گويد «ما صدها کاست آن را از وقتی که به بازار آمده است فروخته ايم».

فيلم های ايرانی و خارجی، که در ايران روی دی وی دی به فروش می رسد، و يا در سينماها نشان داده می شود، تا بحال فيلم هائی کاملا سانسور شده بوده است.

بهمين جهت هنگامی که ويديوی آشنای محبوب توانست مهر تائيد هر دو وزارتخانه درمان و آموزش پزشکی، و فرهنگ و ارشاد اسلامی را کسب کند، جای تعجب کم نبود. توليد اين دی وی دی با طی مراحلی دشوار، بيش از دو سال طول کشيد. محمد رضا عليزاده، تهيه کننده دی وی دی در مصاحبه ای با مجله همشهری جوان می گويد «اين مسائل تابو بود وهيچ کس موافقت نمی کرد اين فيلم را بسازيم. هم از سمت وزارت بهداشت مشکل وجود داشت و هم از طرف وزارت ارشاد. کار به جائی کشيد که گفتم ريسک می کنم و از سرمايه و هزينه خودم اين کار را می سازم».

اين ريسک ثمربخش بود. دی وی دی، که ماه گذشته به قفسه های داروخانه ها راه يافت، هر کدام به قيمتی تقريبا معادل ۴ دلار فروخته می شود. خريداران بايد ۱۸ ساله و يا مسن تر باشند تا بتوانند اين دی وی دی را خريداری کنند.

عليزاده به همشهری جوان گفت «اين اولين باراست که بازبانی ساده و روشن مسائلی را که نمی شود در تلويزيون و راديو بيان کرد به اين شکل کار[مطرح] کرديم». ما شرايط و فضای مهيائی برای آموزش مسائل جنسی نداريم و اين کار شروع خوبی بود».

بازاريابی با تبليغاتی نسبتا رک و صريح و مرتبط با مسائل جنسی انجام گرفته است. سايت فروش، به خريداران بالقوه با شعار «ديگر نگران نباشيد» اطمينان می دهد، و ادعا می کند که اين دی وی دی «هديه ای بی نظير برای همسران» است. سايت برای مشتريان بالقوه توضيحات صريح تری نيز دارد: «زوج های جوانی که از مطرح کردن مسائل زناشوئی بين خود خجالت می کشند»، «زوج هائی که سالهاست از ازدواج آنها می گذرد ولی از روابط خود راضی نيستند» و «افرادی که می خواهند با نيازهای همسر خود آشنا شوند.

ويديو، حتی در محله های محافظه کاران و متعصبين و جنوبی تهران نيز فروش خوبی دارد. داروفروش داروخانه ای در جنوب تهران، که او هم به لحاظ حساسيت موضوع خواسته است معرفی نشود، می گويد هفته ای بين ۵۰ تا ۱۰۰ تا فروش دارد. اين داروخانه يک فروشنده زن هم آورده است تا از بروزهرگونه مشکلی در تماس و گفتگو جلوگيری کند. داروفروش می گويد «افراد مذهبی هم می خواهند از زندگی و از بودن با هم لذت ببرند. آنها هم احساس دارند».

پژوهشگران جامعه ايرانی موفقيت اين دی وی دی را نشانه ای از يک روند گسترده تر می بينند. مينا، روانشاس اجتماعی می گويد «مردم به اين نتيجه رسيده اند که در اين زمينه ها به آموزش نياز دارند و اطلاعات سنتی شان کافی نيست.
