La central nuclear de Natanz ha reiniciado el procesamiento de uranio.
Con Coughlin, The Telegraph reported that Iran’s controversial Natanz uranium processing plant has successfully restarted their equipment that enable it to produce material for nuclear warheads. A major development.
Iran’s controversial Natanz uranium processing plant has successfully restarted the sophisticated equipment that could enable it to produce material for nuclear warheads, according to reports received by Western intelligence.
In the past few days Iranian nuclear scientists have reportedly restarted four of the centrifuges required to produce weapons-grade uranium, and have begun feeding them with uranium hexafluoride (UF6) gas, a key component in the production of nuclear bombs. READ MORE
Intelligence officials say restrictions have been imposed on the inspectors’ movements between the various facilities at Natanz.
They have been specifically excluded from those areas where the Iranians have announced they would resume uranium enrichment, and have ordered the UN inspectors to report to officials running the plant on a daily basis. Security cameras installed by IAEA officials to monitor key facilities have been disabled.
La UE pidió al régimen islámico que suspendiese todos sus lazos con los grupos terroristas palestinos y libaneses. El régimen islámico, como no podía ser de otra manera, no quiso, es más se BURLÓ de la declaración:
IRNA, one of the regime-run news agencies reported that Hamid-Reza Assefi, the regimes foreign ministry spokesman mocked the statement and the criticism of Ahmadinejads meetings with various Palestinian groups, calling it shocking and intolerable. Assefi also asserted that the Islamic regime expects the government of Austria to re-evaluate its views and relations with Israel.
Como no podía ser menos, Hizbollah apoya a sus amos:
- OhMyNews reported that the leader of Hezbollah said U.S. President George W. Bush and his secretary of state should “shut up” after they accused Syria and Iran of fueling protests over cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
- Iran Press News reported that Hasan Nasrollah, the Lebanese Hezbollah leader said: “We stand behind the Islamic Republic of Iran in their nuclear pursuits… [Western] dictators want to deprive them from obtaining such technology.”
Es interesante comprobar su capacidad de argumentación: “cállate”, en lugar de apotar alguna razón “razonable” al menos para ellos. Pero claro es que los 100 millones de dólares que le dio Irán a Hamas algo cuentan.
Gran Bretaña, Francia y Alemania van a imponer determinadas medidas a los dirigentes iraníes:
AFTAB, the regime-run site reported that the 3 European nations, Britain, France and Germany have begun compiling a list of the Islamic regimes hierarchy in order to impose possible sanctions such as banning the top brass from traveling to other countries and freezing their bank accounts and assets invested in countries around the world. According to European experts these sanctions will impose pressure on the Islamic regimes authorities and not the Iranian people.
Pero, ¿de verdad no han tomado esta decisión ya? Me recuerda a Repu, La cerda ese personaje femenino que interpretan los Cruz y Raya, que dice “Voy como las balas” y para recorrer un metro se pasa media hora…
La mascarada y la verdadera revolución en Irán:
Reuters witnesses said a crowd of about 70 protesters gathered in front of the French embassy, then a crowd of about 200 people hurled stones at the Danish embassy and finally, the same crowd then moved to the nearby British diplomatic compound.
POr mucho que Straw apoye a los musulmanes, sus consulados sufren igual la ira de los extremistas. (Eso sí, no le vi criticar de la misma forma tan contundente las fotos de los manifestantes pacíficos de Londres. Será porque, claro “alguien puede resultar dañado“).
Eso sí, jóvenes de la organización por la Unidad de los Revolucionarios del Kurdistán se manifestaron pacíficamente y el régimen los reprimió brutalmente.
Iran Press News reported on the protests and clashes between people and Islamic regimes forces in Mahabad (Province of Kurdistan). The organization of the Unity of the Revolutionaries of Kurdistan reports that on Tuesday night, Feb. 7th, the people of the town of Mahabad, residents of the Baaq’eh-Shygon district took to anti-regime protests. The majority of demonstrators were the youth of that and the Posht-Tappeh districts who began their rally by peacefully chanting anti-regime slogans. Moments later, the protestors were brutally attacked and severely beaten by guardian post number 13 of the disciplinary forces. The demonstrators fought back by throwing rocks and bricks. A considerable number of the protestors were arrested and taken to various detention centers in the area.
La ITF llama a apoyar a los conductores iraníes de autobuses encarcelados por ir a la huelga:
The ITF is urging transport workers across the world to support an international day of action demanding the release of over 1000 trade unionists imprisoned in Iran.
The action day, set for 15 February and called by Global Unions, will see unions rally against the continuing attacks against workers involved in the Sandikaye Kargarane Sherkate Vahed, the Syndicate of the Tehran Bus Company. A series of arrests was made following protests and strikes sparked by the detention of the union’s leader Mansour Osanloo on 22 December last year, reportedly charged with “illegal trade union activity” and “turbulence”. He remains in an infamous torture centre for political prisoners in Tehran. READ MORE
A ver si los sindicatos españoles hacen lo propio y apoyan esta movilización. Y, por supuesto, esperamos que Llamazares, Pepiño Blanco, Caldera, De la Vega y un largo etcétera, sin olvidarnos al Presidente Rodríguez, secunden la acción.
Aunque la situación se puede poner peor si eligen como Supremo Líder de la Revolución Islámica a este “caballero”:
Amir Taheri, Asharq Alawsat warned us to watch the forthcoming election of a new Assembly of Experts, a body of mullahs whose task is to elect the Supreme Leader. The new elite’s ideological guru, Ayatollah Muhammad-Taqi Mesbah-Yazdi could emerge as the leading candidate. The most radical of Iran’s Ayatollah’s.
The event to watch is the forthcoming election of a new Assembly of Experts, a body of mullahs whose task is to elect the “Custodian-Theologian”, more commonly known as the “Supreme Guide”, who has virtually unlimited powers under the Khomeinist constitution.
The dominant group in the current Assembly of Experts consists of mullahs with business interests and old ties to the incumbent “Supreme Guide” Ali Khamenehi and the former Presidents Ali-Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and Muhammad Khatami.
The interest of the coming election is whether or not there will be a change of majority in the assembly. Such a change would be the logical continuation of the presidential election which swept a new generation of radical revolutionaries to power under Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. […] The common assumption in Tehran is that Khamenehi, the current “Supreme Guide”, will be confirmed in his position at least for the time being. [..]
During the presidential election Khamenehi was astute enough to adjust his tactics. Having backed Qalibaf in the first round he switched to Ahmadinejad in the second. Ahmadinejad, however, feels he owes nothing to Khamenehi. By putting the focus on the “Hidden Imam” Mahdi as the sole source of power in the Islamic Republic, Ahmadinejad has tried to marginalise the “Supreme Guide.” In many of his speeches he puts the Mahdi ahead of all prophets and claims that he has ” a private personal channel” to the “Hidden Imam.”
Theoretically, only the most learned of the Shi’ite clerics are supposed to be considered for the position of “Supreme Guide”.In practice, however, not a single senior ayatollah is showing any interest in the job. In fact the overwhelming majority of Shi’ite clerics in Iran now believe that their participation in government was a mistake, and that Khomeini had been more of an ambitious politician than a proper religious leader. Some senior mullahs want the post of the ” Supreme Guide” abolished and its political responsibilities transferred to the President of the Republic.
Mesbah-Yazdi, however, has virtually no political experience and, if elected ” Supreme Guide”, might be content with providing Ahmadinejad with clerical cover only and allowing him to run the political show. Although Mesbah-Yazdi has shunned the limelight he has been at the centre of most debates within the Khomeinist establishment for the past six or seven years, arousing often violent passions both for and against. The reason is that he is totally against both “taqiyah” (obfuscation) and “kitman” (dissimulation) which have been perfected into veritable arts by the mullahs over the centuries. Thus he often says aloud what most mullahs think in silence.
Cosas de la no-separación religión-Estado.
