Iran shuts down reformist weekly

by

Iran Government closed a prominent reformist weekly. The weekly was criticising the policies of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad quite often.

Iran’s Press Supervisory Board sent a letter on 08 November, Saturday to the Shahrvand-e Emrouz (Today’s Citizen) weekly formally informing it of the decision.

Recently the Weekly carried an editorial with a heading “Why does Iran not have an Obama?” This irritating editorial was the reason for the closure.

Another interesting information from Iran is that, Since 2000, the Press Supervisory Board and Iranian courts have closed some 100 publications condemning many as “pawns of the West” and accusing them of trying to undermine Iran’s system of clerical rule.

    Right away I am going to do my breakfast, after having my breakfast coming

    The internet is fueling the success of music because it can be listened to
    at any time of the day and anywhere in the world. So your personal, non-commercial, watercraft is exempt from a licensing requirement.
    But mostly BBC Radios 4 and 5 because, being speech orientated, they’re more like what I do, so I can learn lots from them.

    It does appear, however, that hypnosis can help a person achieve his or her weight loss goals.
    In fact, I always suggest to those overweight vegetarians to keep to a max of 4 pounds a week so you
    won’t suffer loose skin post weight loss. When you’re about to start on
    your weight loss plan, it’s a good idea to think about your end goal and chunk it down into smaller goals.
