Dr. Zin; I have been on your ping list for a good number of months and have found it ever so informative. Went to the demonstration at the UN against Ahmadinejad and was disappointed that there weren't more people there (maybe 250 or a bit more. The crowd was mostly Iranian supporters of MEK. Not that I have any strong opinion on MEK, (at this point, anyone combating the regime in Iran is positive)--but I thought there would be more different kinds of Iranian dissident groups.
Today's post about the CFR is quite dismaying. The fact that business interests trump national secur-ity/interests and human rights for the Iranian people shouldn't surprise us.
the group has been officially designated by the US government as a terrorist organization.
