زيارة الرئيس السوري بشار الأسد إلى موسكو قد تساعد على تحقيق استقرار الوضع في منطقة الشرق الأوسط

مر على الزيارة الأولى التي قام بها الرئيس السوري بشار الأسد لروسيا في شهر يناير 2005 عامان تقريبا. وأصبحت الفترة المنصرمة بالنسبة لروسيا وسوريا بمثابة تحقق من ثبات النهج السياسي للبلدين، خاصة وأن الوضع في الشرق الأوسط في المستقبل القريب يعد بأحداث سياسية صاخبة. ويتعين على موسكو ودمشق في هذه الفترة تنسيق مواقفهما.

Petition against a U.S. attack on Iran [Oct. 6th, 2006|11:43 am]
Kuwait
paddymac
I wanted to inform members of this community of a new petition against a U.S. military attack on Iran. As you probably know, there are strong indications that the Bush administration may be planning such an attack, including from retired generals.

As a first step in opposing this, please sign the petition, hosted by Just Foreign Policy and Peace Action, calling on our government not to attack Iran: http://www.justforeignpolicy.org/involved/iranpetition.html

The press has reported that President Bush gave a "prepare to deploy" order to the nuclear-equipped aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower and its accompanying strike force. They are now headed for the Persian Gulf, just off the coast of Iran. This deployment could be the first step of planned military action against Iran.

Please sign now and then forward this link to your friends: http://www.justforeignpolicy.org/involved/iranpetition.html

Young, Hip, and Muslim? [Aug. 22nd, 2006|12:11 am]

Salaam Aleykoom!

I'm a young American Muslim who is sick and tired of only hearing about Islam in headlines. So I've started a new line of clothing and gifts that is geared towards young, modern Muslims who are ready to make their own headlines. Some political, some funny, some religious, and lots of ARABIC! So check it out, please spread the word if you dig it, and check in periodically for new designs.

And if you like it, WEAR IT WITH PRIDE!

American Muslim

Shukran!!

If you ever witnessed political demonstrations in Arab countries, you will notice that we have a knack for coming up with very 'creative' slogans. These slogans are usually very passionate but not necessarily intellectual in nature.

I recall the 1959 demonstration at the Shuwaikh campus where a number of students came up with the slogan, "Arab oil belongs to ALL Arabs." Needless to say, most Arabs from Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Palestine followed suit and began chanting the same slogans. They continue to do that today.

If I were on campus that day, I would have come up with my own slogans and they would all have included; "Arab apples belong to all Arabs," "The Nile belongs to all Arabs," "Arab watermelons belong to all Arabs" and "Arab women belong to all Arabs."

You might wonder why I would come up with such brainless slogans. Well, in the 1930s when we were thirsty and living in not so luxurious conditions in the middle of the desert, we never heard slogans from Beirut that said, "The Kaleb River water belongs to all Arabs." We did not hear Egyptians chatting slogans about how the Nile belongs to all Arabs and I can say the same about Iraq. Having said that, let me add that the slogan, "Arab women belong to all Arabs" doesn't sound that bad after all."

Iran Freedom Concert Follow-Up [Mar. 22nd, 2006|11:18 am]
Kuwait

hamsa_journal
We are writing to inform you about the Iran Freedom Concert held this past weekend at Harvard University, and ask for your help in spreading the word about its success.

Co-hosted by students at Harvard University and the Hands Across the Mideast Support Alliance (HAMSA, a project of the American Islamic Congress), the concert aimed to promote the message that "civil rights must be respected by any Iranian government, and freedom must become a reality for all Iranians."

The concert was an outstanding success, and was covered by major news organizations. Click here to read an article by the Boston Globe about the concert. 
 
To see pictures and video clips of the concert, please click here.

Our work, however, is not yet done. We are trying to bring the message and success of this concert to as many people as possible. We are especially trying to reach as many people currently inside Iran as possible, and let them know of this event.

Thus, we would be grateful if you could put a small post about the concert and its success in your journal,  and let as many people know about its message as possible. If you could do us the personal favor of sending us a link to any posts you make about the concert for our records, we would be grateful.

Please e-mail us if you have any questions, and thank you for your time.

Harvard Students Hold "Iran Freedom Concert" in Solidarity with Iranian Student Movement for Democracy and Civil Rights

Event to be broadcast into Iran via satellite TV


CAMBRIDGE – On Saturday (March 18) Harvard University will host the Iran Freedom Concert, a rally organized by Harvard students to support their counterparts in Iran.

Prominent Iranian student leader Akbar Atri and Harvard's student body president John Haddock will address the crowd. Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran, will be sending a statement of support.

"As tensions rise over nuclear issues, our diverse student coalition wants to spotlight the human side of the Iran crisis," said co-organizer Adam Scheuer, a senior and editor at the Harvard Middle East Review.

"Iranian students are denied basic rights Americans take advantage of every day. But there is a brave student movement in Iran working for change, and we need to support them." Widespread student protests in Iran have broken out in recent years, despite a brutal crackdown by the regime's security forces.

The concert, which begins at 9 p.m. at Leverett House, features leading campus musicians and speakers from campus groups exposing repression in Iran. Nine organizations are co-sponsoring, including an unusual alliance of campus Democrats and Republicans.

"The coalition doesn't take a stand on policy debates like foreign intervention," explained freshman co-organizer Alex McLeese. "But we agree that the fundamental rights of Iranians cannot be held hostage to diplomatic maneuverings over Iran's nuclear program."

The Iran Freedom Concert takes place just before the traditional Persian new year of Norouz – reflecting the students' hope for a new day for freedom in Iran.

"Iranian students are arrested for what they write on their blogs and have to take their exams in handcuffs," noted freshman co-organizer Nick Manske. "In fact, the essential elements of this concert are illegal in Iran: live singing, mixed dancing, and discussing social messages. Not to mention the restrictions on women, minorities, and journalists."

That message is being echoed on campuses across the country, with simultaneous rallies planned at Georgetown, UPenn, Duke, and other schools. Prominent Iranian dissidents, as well as the American Islamic Congress, are sending statements of support. The event will be broadcast into Iran via satellite TV.

"If there is no international pressure, there will be more crackdowns, arrests, and imprisonments," said Fatameh Haghighatjoo, the youngest female ever elected to the Iranian parliament. "But if there is international concern, these will be reduced."

"This is a critical moment for Iran," Scheuer said. "Iranian activists need to know that American students are ready to help them hold the Iranian regime accountable. We want to help our counterparts in Iran seize the moment and advance their civil rights movement."
