  1. http://www.netiran.com/Htdocs/WeeklyJourna...my/wj01502.html Summary: Losing 300 million Arab consumers from an annual Middle Eastern market worth $20 million became more serious, so that a Russian newspaper wrote in the middle of 2002 that about 4 million bottles of Iranian Zamzam had been sold in the eastern parts of Saudi Arabia in a single week. Coca Cola reported a 10-percent fall in sales in such countries as Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Lebanon while non-American sources announced that Coca Cola imports to Saudi Arabia were slashed by 40 percent during the first quarter of 2003.

  2. Tehran, Sept 4, IRNA -- Grand Ayatollah Sistani`s Deputy Seyed Ali Vaez survived an assassination attempt in Iraq`s Kezemein city on Wednesday. Dispatching the news on Wednesday night, Qatar`s Al Jazeera satellite TV said, "Three assailants opened fire at al-Vaez while he was exiting from one of the gates of Imam Moussa Kazem`s holy shrine." All three terrorists were detained following the failed assassination by Iraqi police, according to Al Jazeera. According to this report, Seyed Ali al-Vaez, who is a close acquaintance of Grand Ayatollah Sistani, has a quite high social and and
  3. (bismillah) I'm traveling so I will not be able to listen to the interview due to the slow hotel connection. (see, i even visit shiachat while traveling B) ) But if what others are saying about the interview is really true, then I pity the guy. How sad! But then again, wisdom and piety were never hereditary. Just look at the horrible character of some of relatives of our infallible Imams. I'm just glad I have to understand and follow the Quran and the Prophet(sawa) rather than Khomeini or his family or any other scholar. Alhumdulillah, I have my guidance!
  4. (bismillah) As someone that has studied international finance and invests, I disagree with the post above. The stock market is not a valid indicator of the economic well-being of the average American. There are two main indicators that have yet to happen. 1. Large capital investments by corporations, which is followed by new jobs. 2. The containment of the national budget deficit. I believe the economic recovery is on its way. Perhaps another year.
  5. (bismillah) There are plenty of corrupt clerics in Iran and elsewhere. I have never doubted that. Personally, I like to call them "Mercedez Mullas" or "Armani Akhunds." You have to see these guys in Tehran! There is no correlation between their lifestyle and the top leadership like Imam Khomeini or Khamenei. And these guys are suppose to be role models and immitate the infallible Imams?!! No wonder people like Br. waiting are so confused about islamic politics. :angel:
  6. As a student, I can testify to the scientific and engineering achievements of the students and professors alluded to in his speech. Iranian students are competing head on with some of the top US schools like Stanford and MIT. --------- Supreme Leader: Iran is standard bearer of religious democracy Tehran, Aug 6, IRNA -- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic is the standard bearer of religious democracy by holding (democratic) elections in the country with subsequent massive turnout. In a mee
  7. (bismillah) That doesn't prove anything. Ayatullah Khamenei has also forbidden his sons to get involved in politics.
  8. (bismillah) Br. waiting, Your problem is not with Iran or Khamenei or Rafsanjani, you have a problem with Islam. I've exposed your hypocracy on this forum many times. How long will you hide? Why don't you just tell others how much Islam bothers you and keeps you from being "free." Why don't you admit that you hate the very nature of Islam "SUBMISSION to God's Will"!! ? There is no point in hiding.
  9. (bismillah) I think you are letting your wishful thinking get in the way of reality. Just a quick glance at the Guiness book of World Records will tell you that Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. It is the fastest growing religion in America among blacks, whites and hispanics. And American women seem to be most receptive to Islam. According to NYT, the rate of people converting to Islam in America has quadrupled since September 11th. Islam is anything but a bunch of footnotes in history. It is scaring the hell out of US policy makers and think-tanks.

  11. http://www.policyanalysismarket.org/ WASHINGTON - The Pentagon (news - web sites) is setting up a stock-market style system in which investors would bet on terror attacks, assassinations and other events in the Middle East. Defense officials hope to gain intelligence and useful predictions while investors who guessed right would win profits. ... http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...error_market_10 Here is the project website: http://www.policyanalysismarket.org/
  12. (bismillah) Excuse me? What kind of logic is this? Is this an attempt to pacify Shia Muslims from demanding their rights? Islam was established to establish justice and peace, not to mourn Imam Hussain(as) death. Justice has to be established at all cost. Read "Red Shia vs. Black Shia" by Shariati
  13. (bismillah) I'm asking this question on behalf of someone else. What is the reputation of Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine?
  14. What is alcohol-free beer? Does it taste and smell as bad as regular beer? ----- Russia's "Baltica" Breweries company is shortly beginning supply of alcohol-free beer to Islamic Iran. Alcohol-free beer is the latest in the whole range of premium beverages produced by "Baltica" at its flagship brewery in St Petersburg and various regions of Russia. According to Prime-TASS economic agency, "Baltica" plans to capture 20 per cent share of the Iranian market with the sale of 300 thousand deca-litres of alcohol-free beer by the end of next year. "Baltica" is eyeing the West Asian Moslem count
  15. (bismillah) Br. waiting, you've lost all credibility on this forum. All hypocrites are exposed sooner or later. You're doing a great job. Keep it up.
