`Erfan Ehsani sentenced: one year

 

HRANA, July 22

`Erfan Ehsani ( عرفان احسانی ), a Bahai of Sangesar in Iran’s Semnan province, has been sentenced to one year in prison. He was arrested on April 21 this year, and held for some time before being released on bail. He was tried in Semnan on May 27, on charges of propaganda against the regime and teaching the Bahai Faith. His wife, Taraneh Torabi ( ترانه ترابی ) has also been sentenced to 20 months in prison. They have a child, aged one month.

‎”Christianity is always out of fashion because it is always sane; and all fashions are mild insanities. When Italy is mad on art the Church seems too Puritanical when England is mad on Puritanism the Church seems too artistic. When you quarrel with us now you class us with kingship and despotism; but when you quarrelled with us first it was because we would not accept the divine despotism of Henry VIII. The Church always seems to be behind the times, when it is really beyond the times; it is waiting till the last fad shall have seen its last summer. It keeps the key of a permanent virtue.” G. K. Chesterton (emphasis mine)

 

Can the pillar and foundation of truth really be behind the times? My crystal ball says no.

Stand Up and Fight

«Lo sterminio di milioni di bambini non nati, in nome della lotta contro la povertà, costituisce in realtà l’eliminazione dei più poveri tra tutti gli esseri umani». Papa Benedetto XVI°

Martedì 05 Giugno ho avuto delle risposte davvero interessanti al tweet postato l’11 Maggio che così recita: «Io i 2€ all’UNICEF non li dò. Non sostengo un’agenzia che, pur avendo come scopo la difesa della vita dei più piccoli, promuove l’aborto».

Risposte che, voglio chiarire subito, sono arrivate tutte da maschi pro aborto.
Risposte che mi hanno fatto capire quanto lavoro noi pro lifers abbiamo da fare per far trionfare la civiltà della verità, dell’amore e della vita.

Un utente è arrivato a dirmi che «l’aborto è sacrosanto».
Un altro, con cui ho intavolato una discussione davvero interessante anche se infruttuosa, mi ha detto, in sostanza, che piuttosto che vedere i bambini africani morire di fame è meglio nemmeno farli…

No Pasdaran

Da dove ricominciare quest’oggi…difficile, anche perchè c’è solo l’imbarazzo della scelta. Il regime iraniano ormai è all’offensiva su tutti i fronti. Il comandante dei Pasdaran Ali Jafari ha visitato l’isola di Abu Musa, territorio conteso tra l’Iran e gli Emirati Arabi Uniti. Dopo Ahmadinejad, quindi, anche il capo delle Guardie Rivoluzionarie ha voluto chiarire chi comanda nell’area. Il giretto di Jafari, chiaramente, ha provocato una reazione da parte degli Stati arabi della regione che, per bocca del Parlamento Arabo, hanno chiesto la fine dell’ingerenza dell’Iran negli affari interni delle monarchie del Golfo. Nello stesso tempo, quindi, Teheran è tornata a minacciare gli Stati Uniti: Yahya Rahim Safavi ha dichiarato che “tutte le basi militari americane nel Golfo sono nel raggio d’azione dei missili iraniani”. Per la cronaca, Safavi è l’ex Comandante dei Pasdaran ed oggi è il consigliere militare della Guida Suprema. Non male per chi parla di…

Our story

I am Mohammad Rahimi, 27 years old and i live in Afghanistan,my G+ profile and here is my Twitter  since 2005 I am running a non-profit, called FONON, FONON website I and my other colleagues have done our best to keep this nonprofit running. We facilitate the followings for Afghan women.

Afghan women taking exam

Literacy courses: You know enough about Afghanistan war and specially women who are the main victim of war, who suffered the most, who was not allowed to go outside of their houses, was escorted by a male member of the family if went out. They had to leave everything behind and escape of death to neighboring countries like Iran and Pakistan where they were not allowed to go to school. And NOW they are mothers, mothers who was a young girl one day and had their dreams, dreaming of a nice future. What happened to all those dreams plans all gone. When we interview with our literacy students they tell the only wish they had in their life to be able to read one day! When they see their children go to school they remember their childhood and cry. Whoever you are that are reading this page I want to tell you the truth that how much hope you plant in the heart of these woman by donating a little. Think of $1 in your life? How much impact does it have in your life? How much difference does it make? And think how much will it change the life of a woman in Afghanistan by enabling us to buy her a pen and pencil?
