[[Khatami cried and never lied]]

Gov't Spokesman: President Khatami tolerated injustice, too often

Yazd, July 28, IRNA

Gov't Spokesman-Khatami-Injustice

Government Spokesman Abdollah Ramezanzadeh said here Wednesday evening, "Many people observed injustice in treating Khatami and I was many times witness to dropping of tears from his eyes after hearing undeserved sarcastic mock." Speaking at a farewell ceremony organized for President Khatami at hometown, He said, "Khatami permitted his critics to criticize him freely throughout his tenure and did not file complaints against anybody, holding tight to his belief that the more he would be criticized the better he would perform his duties." He reiterated, "He is seen off today as a beloved personality for the whole Iranian nation, leaving the seat of power willfully and calmly." Ramezanzadeh added, "The president's personality remained unchanged throughout the past eight years, even though he tolerated unprecedented hardships and observed exemplary patience so that the people would remain at peace of mind as far as he could help." The government spokesman said, "The president decided never to tell lies to the nation and he never did so; he decided never to take a step against Iran's national interests, and he never did so; and he decided to employ all facilities within his command and all his own power at the service of the Iranian nation, and he did so." He added, "All the same, whatever he did was presented to the nation quite contrary to their real nature." Ramezanzadeh said, "They accused him of totally abandoning concerns about the people's economic problems, but as you know Iran's economy has never been growing as rapidly as during his government throughout this country's history." He added, "During the first years of President Khatami's government the Iranian farmers produced 5.5 million tons of wheat annually and the government paid 550 rials per kilo to them, while today they are producing 13.5 million tons of wheat and selling it to the government at 1,870 rials per kilo." The government spokesman referred to the services offered to various economic sectors by the government, particularly to those wishing to make investments in industrial sector, and such infrastructure projects as gas and oil, particularly the South Pars Gas Field.

He added, "The latter mammoth project was clicked during President Khatami's tenure, and ended in the same era and now each of its sections generate three million dollars income for the country per day." He reiterated, "Up to the year 2003 the government had created 650,000 new jobs in the country and in the following two years, too on the average 450 to 500 thousand new jobs were created." Ramezanzadeh said, "We now have relations with all countries in the world except for one country, and we are proud that Iran's name is now established at international scene as the standard bearer of peace." He reiterated, "We have trade ties with 187 countries in the world today and for the first time in past fifty years our agriculture sector has a positive trade balance in favor of exports." Ramezanzadeh reiterated, "Ten infrastructure gas and oil projects are underway currently, whose income would equal the country's current income from oil sales today once they would become operational in near future." He said, "The country's Hard Currency Saving Fund, too would have $25 billion in it by the end of the current (Iranian) year (March 20, 2006)." Pointing out that The Central Bank of Iran has saved the maximum possible amount of cash for the next government compared to all previous governments' heritage for their successors, he said, "We are delivering a safe and secure country with all its facilities and capabilities to the brothers who are about to take charge of its affairs." He added, "In President Khatami's government more managers and elites were trained for the country than in any previous government." Yazd Governor General Hamid Kalantari, too said at the ceremony that President Khatami's services to the Iranians would never be forgotten in the history of this country as he was the manifestation piety, devotion, kindness, thoughtfulness, farsightedness, being logical, seeking independence, loving freedom and heeding the youth's demands throughout his eight years at the office.'

"Also last week Ismail Ahmadi Moghaddam, a top general of the IRGC and the No. 2 in the IRGC-run paramilitary Bassij Force -- the shock troops primarily deployed to crackdown on protesters -- was appointed as Iran's new police chief. The appointment of Mr. Moghaddam, who once said "a country where liberal ideas rule will get nowhere," brings Iran's regular police force under the domination of the IRGC and signals a growing readiness to rein in social and political dissent."

The police weren't dependable anymore in controlling the protesters so they bring in a general.
That says a lot.

Supreme Leader: Women's Day best opportunity to examine their status

July 27, 2005 (IRNA)

Iran-Supreme Leader

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei here Wednesday said that naming the birth anniversary of Hazrat Fatemeh (SA) as Woman's and Mother's Day provides the opportunity to examine their high status in Islam.

Speaking at a ceremony marking Woman's Day, the Supreme Leader referred to the misunderstandings in this respect and reiterated the need for recalling the true value of women and the respect they deserve in Islam.

The auspicious birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad's (PBUH) daughter, Hazrat Fatemeh Zahra (SA), and that of the founder of the Islamic Republic, the late Imam Khomeini, was celebrated in a ceremony on Wednesday morning.

During the ceremony, which was attended by a number of lovers of the infallible household of Prophet Mohammad (PBUP), selected panegyrists and poets eulogized the holy lady of Islam (Fatemeh SA).

Turning to the sensitive, lasting, delicate and effective role of women in the human history, Ayatollah Khamenei accused the Western civilization of either treachery against women and undermining their genuine status in the course of history, within the community and family or totally ignoring them under the pretext of supporting them.

"Thus by overlooking their true rights, the family as the foundation of the community is undermined, which in turn endangers the future generations and eventually results in the collapse of civilization," added the Supreme Leader.

"The respect paid to women's role in family by Islam does not at all mean that they are denied their rights for participating in social activities.

"However, this is misinterpreted by some people who assume that according to Islam, women should either be good mothers and wives or take part in social activities.

"But Fatemeh (SA) was not only the symbol of an exemplary wife and mother, but was at the same time quite actively involved in social affairs," said Ayatollah Khamenei.
