    Axis Of Evil: While 15 members of the British Royal Navy and Marines are held captive by the Islamic Republic of Iran, Europe plays it soft, providing yet another disheartening lesson in how not to react to terrorism. The Brits were kidnapped Friday by Iran's Revolutionary Guard Navy, a seagoing force that has little respect for maritime law and tends to be more savage than Iran's regular navy. The sailors and marines had just completed a routine inspection of a merchant ship in the Persian Gulf when Iranian gunboats surrounded them in Iraqi waters. Public reaction in Britain has been...

    Editor, Daily News: Why are we pussy-footing around? Liberals (along with some pseudo-conservative types) are caught in the grips of political correctness — another form of deceit and dishonesty. Political correctness is an advanced form of lying, actually working against the end it means to achieve. That is why fighting a politically correct war against terrorism has been so arduous. Here is what we ought to do (my fellow "Republican" Jane Varner might even approve of this plan). The United States, acting on behalf the president, Congress and its citizens, should advance the following declaration: In an orderly fashion, the...

    A royal commission to investigate how and why the London bombings happened and a media unit to rebut negative stories about Muslims and counter propaganda from Islamist extremists should be set up, according to proposals to be sent to Tony Blair by government-appointed taskforces on tackling Islamist extremism. The Guardian has obtained details of the plans drawn up by the taskforces, set up after the July bombings. They were asked to come up with ideas to help prevent British Muslims turning to terrorism, and which would also counter a sense of alienation some Muslims feel from British society and institutions....

    TEHRAN (Reuters) - The United States does not deserve foreign aid in the wake of hurricane Katrina given the amount of money it spends on military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, a senior Iranian cleric said on Friday.

By Tom Regan| csmonitor.com Iran once again says it will resume its nuclear program, despite International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)concerns.

    Top News Story Iranian President Coming to America Hamid Namvar - 8/18/2005 According to media reports indicate that the United States is considering an entry visa to Iran's new president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to attend a UN meeting in New York City in mid-September. This would send a very wrong signal at a very crucial juncture to the increasingly belligerent Iran. Administration must firmly deny Ahmadinejad entry to the United States. And by all indications, the American public opinion would certainly welcome such a move. Ahmadinejad, a former senior commander of the feared terror-sponsoring Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (the "Pasdaran"),...

    Top News Story New-conservatives, regime crisis and political perspectives in Iran by Ardeshir Mehrdad and Mehdi Kia; August 15, 2005 In the recent presidential elections in Iran, Mahmood Ahmadinejad, an unknown conservative military commander, won. His victory was surprising as many had predicted Hashemi Rafsanjani would become Iran’s next president. Rafsanjani, perhaps the second most powerful man in the Islamic Republic, was supported by a broad coalition of reformists and pragmatist elites. The shock of this surprise victory may partly explain the crude nature of some of the analyses that followed. Even more striking is the failure to address...

    Top News Story Reuters In a stern warning to Iran, President Bush said "all options are on the table" if the Iranians refuse to comply with international demands to halt their nuclear program, pointedly noting he has already used force to protect U.S. security. Bush's statement in an interview on Israeli TV late Friday was unusually harsh. He previously said diplomacy should be used to persuade Iran to suspend its nuclear program and if that failed then the U.N. Security Council should impose sanctions. The U.S. government and others fear Iran's nuclear work is secretly designed to produce nuclear...

According to Alireza Jafarzadeh, an exiled dissident based in Washington, it may never have been suspended, despite an agreement to that effect reached last November with the European Union troika of Britain, France and Germany. He claimed yesterday that the Iranians had manufactured about 4,000 centrifuges, capable of enriching uranium to weapons-grade levels, at a plant in Natanz, and had hidden this activity from the International Atomic...
