Iran says does not need permission for nuclear work

Reuters:
Iran is ready to discuss its nuclear programme with any country, but that does not mean it is asking for permission for access to nuclear technology, Iran's foreign minister said on Monday.

Iran's right to peaceful nuclear technology was supported by "many countries of the world", Manouchehr Mottaki told a news conference during a one-day visit to the Afghan capital, Kabul.

"We do not accept global nuclear 'apartheid' and scientific 'apartheid'," Mottaki said.


Iran was ready to discuss its programme. "But that does not mean that we are waiting for any country's permission for the right of the Iranian nation and the Islamic Republic to enjoy nuclear technology," he said.

Iran insists on its right to produce enriched uranium, vital for nuclear power plants or bombs, but swears its goal is solely to fuel an energy-hungry economy.

The United States accuses Iran of trying to produce nuclear weapons. Iran kept its nuclear programme secret for 18 years.

Iranian nuclear negotiators met counterparts from the EU trio of Britain, Germany and France in Vienna last week for the first face-to-face talks for several months to try to overcome suspicions over Tehran's nuclear programme.

Both sides agreed to meet again in January.

Mottaki said Iran's nuclear plans were transparent and solely for peaceful purposes.

  • Yahoo News reported that a reformist-funded satellite television channel plan to take legal action against Iranian authorities for allegedly banning their activities and broadcast into Iran.
  • Amir Taheri, The New York Post warned of the fantasies of the 'Realists.'
  • SMCCDI reported that tens of the Greater Tehran's bus drivers have been arrested in the last 24 hours.
  • Daily Times reported that Pakistan has dismissed speculations of Iran being behind the deteriorating situation in Balochistan.
  • Radio Free Europe published an interview with Kaveh Basmenji to discuss his book, "Tehran Blues," and prospects for Iranian youth.
  • Golnaz Esfandiari, Radio Free Europe published an interview with a 19-year-old Iranian named Arash, who delivers pizzas for a Tehran pizzeria. He said young people in Iran are worried about the future.
  • Ray Takeyh, The Financial Times argued that diplomacy will not end Iran's nuclear program.
  • Erik Schechter, The Jerusalem Post reported there are five options on the table for dealing with Iran and its suspected nuclear weapons program.
  • And finally, Dow Jones Newswires reported that Russia is waiting for Tehran's reply to a proposal to move Iranian uranium enrichment facilities to Russian soil.

Well, yeah, Iran doesn't need permission to build nuclear bombs.

And by the same rights, The civilized, rational non-islamofascist world does not need permission to take whatever steps necessary to protect themselves from the nuclear devistation that the leaders of Iran have often and openly declared as their strategic goal, their individual desire and their religious duty.

We in the US and New Europe don't need permission to defend our freedom if the mad mullahs push this issue too far.

Here's hoping Ariel Sharon will hurry up and get his heart problems behind him so that he can get on with the crucial business of bombing the hell out of Iran.

Iran are an anti American country.
They are a hell of a lot more powerful then Iraq was.

But the U.S will never attack them, because the U.S. will only start a war against very week nations, where it will be an easy victory, and even that gets dragged out for decades(Iraq).

I believe it was Ronald Reagan who said the mullahs who oppress Iran are "the strangest collection of thugs, misfits and criminals since the advent of the third riech."

I think, perhaps there is an extra 'u' in the user name... And maybe the 'ie' is superfluous.

None of those even come close to the last on the list. All the others not involving kids are fun to watch. By the way, you left out Chicken on Chicken with a little money wagered on the side.

All right you PETA heads and self-righteous Bennett inspired anti gamblers, stop trying to fight nature. If you think the hens watching two males try to kill each other in the woods or the barnyard aren't betting corn/acorns/pig turds on who will be the winner, you don't know chicken sh-- about women OR birds.

I must be confused here. Let's rehash this:

The Ayatollah Nuri-Hamadani says the US has demanded that Islamic countries purge the Qu'ran of "verses relating to jihad and martyrdom, verses that forbid friendship and close ties with infidels, and verses relating to the promotion of virtue and the prohibition of vice".

I thought Islam was a religion of peace. I thought Muslims believe in the concept of universal love. I thought Islam had nothing against Christians and Jews aka Infidels.

I thought that jihad wasn't military - that it was a personal struggle and had nothing to do with killing or dying.

So how could there be veres in the Qu'ran, the authoritative source for Islam, which forbid friendship and close ties with infidels? How could there be verses promoting martyrdom and jihad if jihad is warfare.

This Ayatollah says the reason for American "hostility to the Koran was the presence of verses that condemn infidels, arrogant people and Zionists". But I thought Christians and Jews were people of the Book?

Does this guy think we can't read? Does he think that we haven't caught on to the fact that they pick and choose their verses, since the Qu'ran contradicts itself repeatedly.

Geez.


Senior Iranian Cleric Says US Seeks To Eliminate Some Verses From The Koran
Iranian Labor News Agency
Wednesday, December 28, 2005

Tehran, 28 December: Ayatollah Nuri-Hamadani has said that global arrogance has placed the Koran at the top of the list of terrorist books and described it as a motive for distorting the Koran.

Speaking to a group of commanders of the (Islamic Revolution Guards) Corps' (IRGC) navy and members of the Martyr Meysami Koranic teaching centre, Nuri-Hamadani, a source of emulation (senior Shi'i cleric), spoke of global arrogance's inhuman actions and said: America has recently told some Islamic countries to eliminate from their teaching programs some of the verses relating to jihad and martyrdom, verses that forbid friendship and close ties with infidels, and verses relating to the promotion of virtue and the prohibition of vice; and, unfortunately, they have accepted, but those countries' learned people and free-thinkers have protested against this.

He added: It is because of these verses that Bush has said that the Koran heads the list of terrorist books, whereas the Koran is among the best-selling books in America and Europe. They are trying to impose colonialism and their culture on us; this is why they want to eliminate these verses from the Koran.

Nuri-Hamadani said: Just as the Koran prohibits domination, it also prohibits submission to domination. The punishment for domination and submission to domination are the same on Judgment Day, because submission to domination paves the way for the presence of dominators.

He said that the reason for global arrogance's hostility to the Koran was the presence of verses that condemn infidels, arrogant people and Zionists; expose their crimes; and firmly order Muslims not to submit to domination by infidels.

Finally, this source of emulation described the holy Koran as the Prophet's greatest miracle and, citing verses from the Koran, he said: God has promised to safeguard and protect the Koran.

(Description of Source: Tehran Iranian Labor News Agency in Persian - ILNA (Khabargozari-ye Kar-e Iran) was formally launched on 24 February 2003. Managing Editor Mas'ud Heydari claims that ILNA does not receive any financial backing from any center and operates under the supervision of the Labor Higher Education Institute. The founding members of the news agency are the secretary-general of the House of Labor 'Alireza Mahjub, the head of the Labor Higher Education Institute Seyyed Abutorab Fazel of Qazvin Unit; the head of the Labor Higher Education Institute Afshin Habib of Tehran Unit.)
