Marche sur mes yeux
After about 2 or 3 years that i did not read any book ,last night i see a book which was a free Persian version of a book named "walk on my eyes",the book was originally publish in French in the publisher and writers publish the Persian version of it freely on the internet.
Writers are tow western journalist who worked in Iran for years . They started a project about happy Iranians that they face during the years that they worked in Iran but their project have a coincidence with what happened in Iran after last damn presidential election,the book briefly introduce Iran society ,it covers most aspect of Iran from leaders and politic to Iran's youth fever for a nose job or even how a Basiji thinks when he beats people on streets . the book is so interesting and easy for read, the reader really enjoy it , i really enjoy the sense of humor of writers about how they see Iranians and and their behavior . As i wrote the book was my first book that i read after a long time and also i must added that i read the whole 444 pages from midnight to 5 a.m of morning,so weird,huh ? my first book and my first post on my blog after a long time!

let’s talk about Obama's policy toward Iran and Iran's leaders response.
first of all i must say that i am not in favor of Iran's leaders in resisting to start dialouge with united state and i have no doubt that their resisting because they will see their legitimacy in danger if relation between 2 country become common like other countries so they give many points and priorities to other world powers such as china and Russia to support them in cold war between them and US.
but also let me say that i see Obama's policy toward Iran paradoxical from beginning .Obama says "we will extend a hand if you are willing to un-clench your fist"
Obama every new Persian year send message to Iranians and Iran's leaders and ask lets forgot all bitter events in the last 30 years and start a new age for tow nation and 2 countries .but as an Iranian who live inside Iran frankly i must say Obama policy is only a blah blah ! policy and in 1.5 year we all see no practical act as sign for a change .for example US.S could allow Iran to buy new civil planes to reduce air crash in Iran or let peaceful technology such as new generation mobile network or new IT devices such as smart phones ,laptop easily without any sanction use by Iranians or even other technologies such as new cars or medical devices and….
let’s be honest Iran has a big population of young people which they are seeking new opportunities and new thoughts so more hard sanction only could help young generation will absorb by fundamental thoughts but if they put in a free society and environment with modern and useful devices and technology such as broadband internet they will not believe all of the words by Iran's leaders .in other hand more sanction caused more terrible economic crisis in middle class families in Iran that goes society to hibernate situation that the only thing which is important for families is their basic needs so there is no time to think to other needs such as freedom or education or what reason caused this situations for their poverty.

Stop all kind of sanction against Iran for democracy
after month of suspension ,the negotiation between Iran and 5+1 countries will begins in Geneva. Iran says we are not negotiated any more about our nuclear activity and in other side of table 5+1 speak about more sanction and even a military attack if Iran didn't suspend its uranium enrichment . especially US and EU threat Iran with tougher sanctions such as some limitations in importing gas and other oil product!!! to Iran.
as an Iranian i think there is no benefit in tougher sanction for both side , sanction has no power to force Iran to suspend its nuclear activity and other demands of west from Iran for example about Iran position in middle east crisis and in other hand more sanction only affects in Iranian people life for example an expense in their life and spread hate in Iranian society from west when people see sanction cause more plane crash and death of their friends or even when many youth see they cannot use and download many simple software because they see an error like “sorry you are from a forbidden country “.
so i recommend west stop all of kind of sanction against Iran and give more initiative recommendations to Iranian cause i believe an open relation with modern world cause an open society for Iranians and then democracy for Iran and empower more middle class people in Iranian society people day by day. people who know aspects of modern life and know how to use technology in a long term.

Green miracle is alive
After about 3 month in tension we are spend calm days in Iran or it is better i say situation in Iran is more like a big fire underneath of ashes . many people are in prison including ordinary people and leaders of oppositions and many journalists.
oppositions newspaper are shut down and some few that are still published are under heavy pressure and their content must approved by authorities before they could send their newspaper to print house for publishing.
government TV and radio which are the only legal TV and radio station in Iran are broadcast protesters and oppositions courts widely and show to the people these decent men and women in pajamas who are confess against themselves and their beliefs exactly after tow month that they were held in sole cell in prison . every night they shows special reports that try to convince people that there were not any fraud in election ,there were not any systematic torture or rape!!!! in prison ,they were not shooting to people in demonstrations !!!!
maybe you cannot see more protest in street but you can reads slogans in green on the walls of streets or on phone booth or you could see green bands which are hang from green trees in parks or every day you could listened to more songs and read more poems or watch more green movement clips!! on YouTube or other sites on internet in support of green movement in Iran and even you could see people are speak about a mass protest in an annual governmental demonstration in favor of Palestinian people but they want wear green show “V” with their hands.
as i said the situation are like a fire beneath of ashes like what the world saw as how millions of people held biggest demonstration in Iran exactly one day after election without any media and organize it only on internet with their Twitter and Facebook accounts in protest of fraud in election and what they experienced in past by Iran's leaders.

Statement by a group of Iranian bloggers about the Presidential elections and the subsequent events
1) We, a group of Iranian bloggers, strongly condemn the violent and repressive confrontation of Iranian government against Iranian people's legitimate and peaceful demonstrations and ask government officials to comply with Article 27 of the Islamic Republic of Iran's Constitution which emphasizes "Public gatherings and marches may be freely held, provided arms are not carried and that they are not detrimental to the fundamental principles of Islam."
2) We consider the violations in the presidential elections, and their sad consequences a big blow to the democratic principles of the Islamic Republic regime, and observing the mounting evidence of fraud presented by the candidates and others, we believe that election fraud is obvious and we ask for a new election.
3) Actions such as deporting foreign reporters, arresting local journalists, censorship of the news and misrepresenting the facts, cutting off the SMS network and filtering of the internet cannot silence the voices of Iranian people as no darkness and suffocation can go on forever. We invite the Iranian government to honest and friendly interaction with its people and we hope to witness the narrowing of the huge gap between people and the government.
A part of the large community of Iranian bloggers

Where is My vote?
people ask me why i don't write here more especially when Iran is in all of headlines in the world .first of all my weblog is filtered in Iran and then i must confess i wrote a long post in favor of Mousavi before election but good or bad that post accidentally deleted and my silence on my weblog continue .
i voted to Mousavi and to camping for him and tried convince more people to vote for him but it was really hard especially in the district that i live in Tehran, our district is downtown and here many people supported for Ahmadinnejad , here and in villages and small towns ahmadinejad are so popular among people because his campaign speak about corruption!!!in last 30 years so people who suffer from poverty and injustice in their social life see him as a hero .
so victory of ahmadinejad was predictable but what is so mysterious is the number of votes that every candidates could get for example no one could predict Ahamadinejad win election with 24 million vote and Karoubi only get 300,000,000 votes.
anyway results was very mysterious and at least 30% of voters to mousavi came to streets, people who most of them are educated and and want a modern life .they protest with silent rallies for their votes but Government could not tolerant for more than 4 days and on 5th day they repress people violently .they use basij militia to restrain protesters .basij is a people organized militia in Iran and many people who are loyal to revolution are registered in this militia ,so as you see government repress a segment(at least 30%) of own people with another part of people in Iran society and this is what i am scared from it . they are trying spread hate among people in Iran .they try to say protester are belong to up level people from uptowns and others who votes to Ahmadinejad are middleclass people and “It is a confrontation and war between poverty and wealth” and this is very dangerous for future of our society.

100,000 people gathered in Azadi stadium for watching a football match between Iran and Saudi Arabia .Mr.president and his friends are there too. Iran coach is Ail Daei a famous football player in the past but an unpopular celebrity because his arrogant personality among people.the match end and Iranians experienced one of most angry nights in the history because of a big lost.
Iran lost the match for the first time versus an Asian team in Tehran (especially an Arab team) and lost most of the chance for FIFA word cup in 2010 .
I wrote before that the situation of Iran is no more interesting for me and i give up for everything and let MR president and others to do whatever they want to ruin everything in Iran .and the match was a symbol of what they did in past 4 years in Iran for many people in Iran.

Obama as President
About 3 years ago I wrote a post and complain why American people vote to bush for second time .
now after 3 years and half I am writing another post about another united state election for presidency.first of all it is better I declare my position about candidates .for sure I am not a fan of John McCain because he wants bomb,bomb, bomb my country.
and between senator Obama and Hillary Clinton I choose Obama because I think his views are more sufficient for world as president of one of the most important countries and especially for my country ,Iran.
I really wish a moderate president as leader of unite state, a leader who believe in dialogue more than any violate action .unfortunately in my country conservative are in power, and it means never two side that both of them are bully cannot agree on a win win position.both side wants see lose of opposite side.
so I believe that Obama it is a good choice for iranian people ,because he believe on negotiation with Iran without any precondition,and if you were a moderate person, in negotiation even with a hard line side you could manipulate crisis with your logic and let opposite side thought you are a loser* .
*I know I was very optimistic about Obama negotiation with Iran.
