Iran’s Letter to UN Lambasts Foreign Terror Campaign against Scientists


Tehran UniversityIran’s Letter to UN Lambasts Foreign Terror Campaign against Iranian Scientists

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s Ambassador to the United Nations Mohammad Khazaee in a letter to the UN condemned the assassination of a young Iranian scientist in Tehran on Wednesday, and said Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan Behdast was the latest victim of a foreign terror campaign against top Iranian scientists.

Iran’s ambassador to UN, in a letter to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, the President of the UN General Assembly Joseph Deiss, and UN Security Council member states as well as the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) countries stated that the civilian nuclear scientist who was killed by in bomb attack Wednesday was the latest victim of a foreign terror campaign against top Iranian scientists.

The complete text of the letter is as follows;

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

11 January 2012

Excellency,

On 11th January 2012, another prominent Iranian scientist, Mostafa Ahamdi Roshan fell victim of a blind terrorist attack in Tehran. The victim was a Sharif University of Technology graduate in chemical engineering and served as deputy of Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility. In this incident two other innocent people were seriously injured, one of whom died later at the hospital as a result of his wounds.

As you are aware, this is not the first time that the Iranian scientists come under malicious terrorist attacks. Previously, I have informed you (letter contained in document A/65/622-S/2010/634) about the assassination attempts against two Iranian prominent physicists: Majid Shahriari and Fereydoun Abbasi Davani (currently heading Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization) on 29 November 2010 as a result of which Majid Shahriari was martyred and Fereydoun Abbasi Davani and his wife were seriously injured. In the same series of terrorist attacks another Iranian scientist Professor Massoud Ali Mohammadi, was martyred in front of his house on 12 January 2010.

Based on the existing evidence collected by the relevant Iranian security authorities, similar to previous incidents, perpetrators used the same terrorist method in assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists, i.e. attaching a sticky magnetic bomb to the car carrying the scientists and detonating it. Furthermore, there is firm evidence that certain foreign quarters are behind such assassinations. As has been claimed by these circles, such terrorist acts have been carried out as part of the efforts to disrupt Iran’s peaceful nuclear program, under the false assumption that diplomacy alone would not be enough for that purpose. These quarters have spared no efforts in depriving the Islamic Republic of Iran from its inalienable right to peaceful nuclear energy and called for conducting covert operations ranging from assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists to launching a military strike on Iran as well as sabotaging Tehran’s nuclear program.

Now, the question remains whether resorting to all unlawful and coercive measures, even terrorist acts, to prevent developing nations from exercising their right to development, including peaceful use of nuclear energy are permissible?

While reiterating the peaceful nature of Iranian nuclear activities, I would like to emphasize, once again, that the Islamic Republic Iran would not compromise over its inalienable right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and any kind of political and economic pressures or terrorist attacks targeting the Iranian nuclear scientists, could not prevent our nation in exercising this right.

The Islamic Republic of Iran expresses its deep concern over, and lodges its strong condemnation of, such cruel, inhumane and criminal acts of terrorism against the Iranian scientists. My country has suffered the most from acts of terrorism in terms of human losses and material damages in the past decades. It is highly expected from the Secretary-General of the United Nations, and President of the Security Council of the United Nations as well as all other relevant organs and bodies to condemn, in the strongest term, these inhumane terrorist acts and to take effective steps towards elimination of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.

Furthermore, I am sending identical letters to the President of the Security Council and the President of the General Assembly. It would be highly appreciated if this letter could be circulated as a document of the Security Council and of the General Assembly under the agenda item 109.

Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest considerations.

Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan Behdast killed in tehran


Terrorists Kill Commerce Deputy of Iran’s Nuclear Enrichment Site

TEHRAN (FNA)- An Iranian university professor and deputy director at Natanz enrichment facility was killed in a terrorist bomb blast in a Northern Tehran neighborhood on Wednesday morning.

The magnetic bomb which was planted by an unknown motorcyclist under the car of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan Behdast, a professor at Tehran’s technical university, also wounded two other Iranian nationals in Seyed Khandan neighborhood in Northern Tehran.

Ahmadi Roshan, 32, was a graduate of oil industry university and a deputy director of Natanz uranium enrichment facility for commercial affairs.

No more details have been revealed about the blast.

The blast took place on the second anniversary of the martyrdom of Iranian university professor and nuclear scientist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, who was also assassinated in a terrorist bomb attack in Tehran in January 2010.

The today bombing method was similar to the 2010 terrorist bomb attacks against the then university professor, Fereidoun Abbassi Davani – who is now the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization – and his colleague Majid Shahriari.

meeting in New York is as follows:

In the Name of God, the Compassionate

The Merciful

All praise be to Allah, the lord of the Universe, and peace and blessing be upon our Master and prophet, Mohammad (PBUH), and his pure household, his noble companions and on all divine messengers

“Oh, God, hasten the arrival of Imam al-Mahdi and grant him good health and victory, and make us his followers and all those who attest to his rightfulness.”

Mr. President,

Excellencies,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am grateful to the Almighty Allah who granted me, once more, the opportunity to appear before this world assembly. I have the pleasure to express my sincere thanks to H.E. Joseph Deiss, president of the sixty-fifth session for his tremendous efforts during his tenure. I also would like to congratulate H.E Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser on his election as the president of sixty-sixth session of the United Nations General Assembly annual meeting and wish him all success.

Let me seize the moment to pay tribute to all those who lost their lives in the past year, particularly to the victims of tragic famine in Somalia and the devastating flood in Pakistan. I urge everyone to increase their assistance and aid to the affected populations in these countries.

Over the past years, I spoke about different global issues, and the need to introduce fundamental changes in the current international order.

– Today, considering the international developments, I will try to analyze the present situation from a different angle.

– As you all know the dominance and superiority of human beings over other creatures, lie in the very nature and the truth of humankind which is a divine gift and a manifestation of the divine spirit embodying:

– Faith in God, who is the ever-lasting creator and planner of the entire universe;.

– Showing compassion to others, generosity, justice-seeking, and having integrity both in words and in deeds;

– The quest for dignity to reach the pinnacles of perfection, the aspiration to elevate one’s material and spiritual status, and the longing to realize liberty;

– Defying oppression, corruption, and discrimination in contrast to supporting the oppressed;

– Seeking happiness, and lasting prosperity and security for all;

– These are some of the manifestations of common divine and human attributes which can clearly be seen in the historical aspirations of human beings as reflected in the heritage of our search for art and literary works both in prose and poetry, and in the socio-cultural and political movements of human beings in the course of history;

– All divine prophets and social reformers invited human beings to tread on this righteous path;

– God has given dignity to humankind to elevate his status to assume his successor role on Earth;

Dear Colleagues and friends:

– It is vividly clear that despite all historical achievements, including creation of the United-Nations, that was a product of untiring struggles and efforts of free-minded and justice-seeking individuals as well as the international cooperation, human societies are yet far from fulfilling their noble desires and aspirations;

– Most nations of the world are unhappy with the current international circumstances;

– And despite the general longing and aspiration to promote peace, progress, and fraternity, wars, mass-murder, widespread poverty, and socioeconomic and political crises continue to infringe upon the rights and sovereignty of nations, leaving behind irreparable damage worldwide;

– Approximately, three billion people of the world live on less than 2.5 dollars a day, and over a billion people even live without having even one sufficient meal on a daily basis;

– Forty-percent of the poorest world populations only share five percent of the global income, while twenty percent of the richest people share seventy-five percent of the total global income.

– More than twenty thousand innocent and destitute children die every day in the world because of poverty.

– Eighty percent of financial resources in the United States are controlled by ten percent of its population, while only twenty percent of these resources belong to the ninety percent of the population.

– What are the causes and reasons behind these inequalities? How can bone remedy such injustice?

– Those who dominate and run centers of global economic power put the blame on people’s aspiration for religion and the pursuit of the path of divine prophets or the weakness of nations and the ill-performance of a number of groups or individuals. They claim that only their views, approaches or prescriptions can save the humanity and the world economy.

Dear Colleagues and friends

– Don’t you think that the root cause of the problems must be sought in the prevailing international order, or the way the world is governed?

I would like to draw your kind attention to the following questions:

– Who abducted forcefully tens of millions of people from their homes in Africa and other regions of the world during the dark period of slavery , making them a victim of their materialistic greed.

– Who imposed colonialism for over four centuries upon this world. Who occupied lands and massively plundered resources of other nations, destroyed talents, and alienated languages, cultures and identities of nations?

– Who triggered the first and second world wars, that left seventy millions killed and hundreds of millions injured or homeless. Who created the wars in Korean peninsula and in Vietnam?

– Who imposed, through deceits and hypocrisy, the Zionists and over sixty years of war, homelessness, terror and mass murder on the Palestinian people and on countries of the region?

– Who imposed and supported for decades military dictatorship and totalitarian regimes on Asian, African, and Latin American nations.

– Who used atomic bomb against defenseless people, and stockpiled thousands of warheads in their arsenals?

– Whose economies rely on waging wars and selling arms?

– Who provoked and encouraged Saddam Hussein to invade and impose an eight-year war on Iran, and who assisted and equipped him to deploy chemical weapons against our cities and our people.

– Who used the mysterious September 11 incident as a pretext to attack Afghanistan and Iraq – killing, injuring, and displacing millions in two countries- with the ultimate goal of bringing into its domination the Middle-East and its oil resources?

– Who abolished the Breton Woods system and printed trillions of dollars without the backing of gold reserves or equivalent currency? A move that triggered inflation worldwide and was intended to prey on the economic gains of other nations.

– What country’s military spending exceeds annually a thousand billion dollars, more than the military budgets of all countries of the world combined?

– Which governments are the most indebted ones in the world?

– Who dominates the policy-making establishments of the world economy?

– Who are responsible for the world economic recession, and are imposing its consequences on America, Europe and the world in general?

– Which governments are ever ready to drop thousands of bombs on other countries, but ponder and hesitate to send a bit of food aid to famine-stricken people in Somalia or in other places?

– Who are the ones dominating the Security Council which is ostensibly responsible to safeguard the international security?

– There exist tens of other similar questions and of course, the answers are clear.

– The majority of nations and governments of the world have had no role in the creation of the current global crises, and as a matter of fact were themselves the victims of such policies.

– It is as lucid as daylight that the same slave masters and colonial powers that once instigated the two world wars have caused widespread miseries and disorder with far-reaching effects across the globe since then.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

– Do these arrogant powers really have the competence and ability to run or govern the world, or is it acceptable that they call themselves as the sole defender of freedom, democracy, and human rights, while they militarily attack and occupy other countries?

– Can the flower of democracy blossom from NATO’s missiles, bombs or, guns?

Ladies and Gentlemen;

– If some European countries still use the Holocaust, after six decades, as the excuse to pay fine or ransom to the Zionists, should it not be an obligation upon the slave masters or colonial powers to pay reparations to the affected nations?

– If the damage and losses of the period of slavery and colonialism were indeed compensated, what would happen to the manipulators and behind-the-scene political powers in the United States and in Europe? Will there remain any gaps between the North and the South?

– If only half of military expenditures of the United States and its allies in NATO is cut to help solve the economic problems in their own countries will they be witnessing any symptom of the economic crisis?

– What would happen, if the same amount is allocated to poor nations?

– What is the justification for the presence of hundreds of US military and intelligence bases in different parts of the world, including 268 bases in Germany, 124 in Japan, 87 in South Korea, 83 in Italy, 45 in the United-Kingdom, and 21 in Portugal? Does this mean anything other than military occupation?

– Don’t the bombs deployed in the said bases undermine the security of other nations?

Ladies and Gentlemen

– The main question is the quest for the root cause of such attitudes?

– The prime reason should be sought in the beliefs and tendencies of the establishment.

– An assembly of people in contradiction with the inner human instincts and disposition who also have no faith in God and in the path of the divine prophets, replace their lust for power and materialistic ends with heavenly values.

– To them, only power and wealth prevail, and every attempt must bring into focus these sinister goals.

– Oppressed nations have no hope to restore or protect their legitimate rights against these powers.

– These powers seek their progress, prosperity and dignity through the poverty, humiliation and annihilation of others.

– They consider themselves superior to others enjoying special privileges or concessions. They have no respect for others and easily violate the rights of all nations and governments.

– They proclaim themselves as the indisputable custodians of all governments and nations through intimidation, recourse to threat and force, and the abuse of international mechanisms. They simply break all the internationally-recognized and regulations.

– They insist on imposing their lifestyle and beliefs on others.

– They officially support racism.

– They weaken countries through military intervention, and destroy their infrastructures, in order to plunder their resources by making them all the more dependent.

– They sow the seeds of hate and hostility among nations and people of different pursuits, in order to prevent them from fulfilling their goals of development and progress.

– All cultures, identities, lives, values and wealth of nations, women, youth, families, families as well as the wealth of nations are sacrificed by their hegemonistic tendencies and the inclination to enslave and captivate others.

– Hypocrisy and deceit are allowed to secure their interests and imperialistic goals. Drug- trafficking and killing of innocent human beings are also allowed in pursuit of such diabolic goals. Despite NATO’s presence in the occupied Afghanistan, there has been a dramatic increase in the production of illicit drugs there.

– They tolerate no question or criticism, and instead of presenting a reason for their violations, they always put themselves in the position of a claimant.

– By using their imperialistic media network which is under the influence of colonialism they threaten anyone who questions the Holocaust, and September 11 with sanctions and military action.

– Last year, when the need to form a fact-finding team to undertake a thorough investigation concerning the hidden elements involved in September 11 incident was brought up- an idea which is also endorsed by all independent governments and nations as well as by the majority in the United States-, my country and myself came under pressure and threats by the government of the United States.

– Instead of assigning a fact-finding team, they killed the main perpetrator and threw his body into the sea.

– Would it not have been reasonable to bring to justice and try openly the main perpetrator of the incident in order to identify the elements behind the safe space provided for the invading aircraft to attack the twin world trade towers?

– Why should it not have been allowed to bring him into trial to help recognize those who launched terrorist groups and brought wars and other miseries into the region?

– Is there any classified information that must be kept secret?

– They view Zionism as a sacred notion or ideology and any question concerning its very foundation and history is condemned by them as an unforgivable sin. However they endorse and allow sacrileges and insult against beliefs of other divine religions.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

– Real freedom, justice,, dignity, well being, and lasting security are the rights of all nations.

– These values can neither be achieved by reliance on the current inefficient system of world governance, nor through the intervention of the world arrogant powers and the gun barrels of NATO forces.

– These values could only be realized under independence and recognition of others’ right and through harmony and cooperation.

– Is there any way to address the problems and challenges besetting the world by using the prevailing international mechanisms or tools to help humanity achieve the long-standing aspiration of peace, security and equality?

– All those who tried to introduce reforms whilst preserving the existing norms and tendencies have failed. The valuable efforts made by the Non-Aligned movement and Group 77 and 15 as well as by some prominent individuals have failed to bring fundamental changes.

– Governance and management of the world entail fundamental reforms

– What has to be done now?

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

– Efforts must be made with a firm resolve and through collective cooperation to map out a new plan, on the basis of principles and the very foundation of human universal values such as Monotheism, justice, freedom, love and the quest for happiness.

– The idea of creation of the United Nations remains a great and historical achievement of mankind. Its importance must be appreciated and its capacities must be used to the extent possible for our noble goals.

– We should not allow the organization which is the reflection of the collective will and shared aspiration of the community of nations, to deviate from its main course and play into the hands of the world powers.

– Conducive ground must be prepared to ensure collective participation and involvement of nations in an effort to promote lasting peace and security.

– Shared and collective management of the world must be achieved in its true sense, and based on the underlying principles enshrined in the international law; and justice must serve as the criterion and the basis for all international decisions or actions.

– All of us should acknowledge the fact that there is no other way than the shared and collective management of the world in order to put an end to the present disorders, tyranny, and discriminations worldwide.

– This is indeed the sole way to prosperity and welfare of human society which is an established and vivid truth.

– While acknowledging the above truth, one should note that it is not enough and that we must have further faith in that and spare no effort toward its realization.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

– Shared and collective management of the world is the legitimate right of all nations, and we as their representatives, have an obligation to defend their rights. Although some powers continuously try to frustrate all international efforts, aimed at promoting collective cooperation, we must, however, strengthen our belief in achieving the perceived goal of establishing a shared and collective cooperation to run the world.

– The United Nations was created to make possible effective participation of all nations in international decision-making processes.

– We all know that this goal has not yet been fulfilled because of the absence of justice in the current management structures and mechanisms of the UN.

– The composition of the Security Council is unjust and inequitable. Therefore, changes and restructuring of the United Nations are considered as the basic demands of the nations that must be addressed by the General Assembly.

– During last year session, I emphasized the importance of this issue and called for the designation of this decade as the decade of shared and collective Global Management.

– I would like now to reiterate my proposal and I am sure that through international cooperation diligent and efforts of committed world leaders or governments and through insistence on justice and the support of all other nations, we can expedite the building of a common bright future.

– This movement is certainly on the rightful path of creation with the assurance of promising future for humanity.

– A future that will be built when humanity initiates to trend the path of of the divine prophets and the righteous the under the leadership of Imam al-Mahdi, the Ultimate Savior of mankind and the inheritor to all divine messengers, leaders and to the pure generation of our great Prophet

– Creation of a supreme and ideal society with the arrival of a perfect human being who is a true and sincere lover of all human beings, is the guaranteed promise of Allah.

– He will come with Jesus Christ to lead the freedom and justice lovers to eradicate tyranny and discrimination, and promote knowledge, peace, justice freedom and love across the world. He will present to every single individual all the beauties of the world and all good things which bring happiness for humankind.

– Today nations have been awakened and with the increase in public awareness, they no longer succumb to oppressions and discriminations.

– The world is now witnessing more than ever, the widespread awakening in Islamic lands, in Asia, Europe, and America. These movements are ever expanding everyday their specter and influence to pursue the realization of justice, freedom and the creation of a better tomorrow.

– Our great nation stands ready to join hands with other nations to march on this beautiful path in harmony and in line with the shared aspirations of mankind.

– Let us salute love , freedom, justice, knowledge, and the bright future that awaits humankind

expressed interest in uranium exploration. The firm’s
application is on hold pending the firm’s incorporation in
Guyana, and company officials are expected to travel to
Guyana next month.

Hal Talaian detained in Iran for spying?


By NASSER KARIMI, Associated Press – 34 mins ago

TEHRAN, Iran – Iranian authorities have arrested a 55-year-old American woman — reportedly with a microphone hidden in her teeth — on suspicion of spying…

… if true, the woman would be the fourth American Iran has detained and accused of spying in less than two years.

The state-owned newspaper IRAN said the woman — identified in Farsi as Hal Talaian — had “spying equipment or a microphone” concealed in her teeth when customs authorities detained her in the border town of Nordouz, 370 miles (600 kilometers) northwest of the capital Tehran. The report said she arrived in Iran from neighboring Armenia without a visa. The paper did not say when she was detained.

But Iran’s semiofficial Fars news agency quoted an unnamed official as saying the woman was taken into custody “about one week ago.” Fars also said she told Iranian border guards that her life would be in danger if they sent her back to Armenia.
