"Our Laureate: Neda of Iran"

"A posthumous award for Neda, as the avatar of a democratic movement in Iran, would have recognized the sacrifices that movement has made and encouraged its struggle in a dark hour."

An excellent source of information on publically expressed views in Iran is the Iran media report of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), found at http://www.thememriblog.org/iran/

The Iranian media present a view of the world quite different than most people outside of the Middle East are familiar with. Prepare to be astonished!

Birthright Israel, a program which sends young American Jews to Israel for a visit, has apparently just put out a video ad that stars (a likeness of) "Mahmud Ahmadinejad." http://tehranbureau.com/madman-ad-man/ I found it amusing.

RA Kashani, thanks for bringing this up. I am seeking permissions to reprint materials here. In the meanwhile, I shall limit postings to my own comments and to links.

Of course, I welcome any and all contributions from members, and hope more will contribute. This is not my personal site.
Comment by RA Kashani on September 4, 2009 at 1:28am
I certainly do not doubt your intentions and I do agree that these pieces are worthy of broadcast, but I was just wondering about the ethical and potentially (though not likely) legal implications of posting entire texts.
Comment by Philip Carl SALZMAN on September 4, 2009 at 12:22am
No, I am not sure either. Most of the pieces posted here have come via email or have appeared in newspapers with only general links, and not always accessible to non-subscribers, so posting links in these cases does not work (although I could go to the Tehran Bureau web site to see if the content I get in emails is posted there). I was rather thinking that this posting for education purposes, for an audience of 21 members, would fall under the educational exemption. I have also tried to make clear the origin of each piece.
Comment by RA Kashani on September 3, 2009 at 11:20pm
How about just linking to articles rather than posting the entire text? I am not sure about the copyright and legal issues of posting works in their entirety (I suspect it IS a copyright violation), but it is certainly bad form and etiquette. I know many of the authors of the pieces posted here and while they may appreciate the viewership, they do seem to have some loyalty to the publication sites. Have you asked Abbas if you can post the piece?

This analysis of Neda Agha-Sultan's name is interesting to say the least. The "Neda" part sounds Persian, all rightThe familiy name is "imported", but as far as I can tell, so are many other Iranian family names. It's interesting to me that the late Ms. Agha-Sultan had a Persian given name Is this practice more common for women than such a name for men? I have a hunch that it is, but of courtse, that's only a hunch.
