Dear Friends,

Freedom-Iran.com is a newly created website seeking to connect and unite the youth and encourage them to take part in the “future making” through participation in world affairs.

We are currently seeking submissions from young activists worldwide to write about various political, social, religious and economic issues which affect Iran and Iranians. What is unique about this project is the fact that we are not looking to just state the problems and the current state of affairs. Through our writing we want to offer solutions and suggest different ways for youth and other interested activists to get involved and try to change the current circumstances.

The articles should preferably be in English or Parsi with an English translation.

For further information or any questions please contact me or the creator of the site Ms. Sheri Alvandian at Sheri@Freedom-Iran.com

We look forward to receiving your “progressive” submissions, comments and suggestions.

Let’s start participating in a “future making.”

Below is my letter to the editor in response to the article "Tone down the rhetoric on Iran"

John Mundy's faith that negotiations can resolve the impasse over Iran's nuclear weapons program rings hollow in light of the facts.

The UN's nuclear watchdog has strong, published evidence that Iran is developing the capability for nuclear weapons, and Iranian officials recently thwarted (again) the UN from inspecting nuclear sites. The Security Council has already passed seven resolutions on Iran since 2006.

This is reflective of a trend of Iranian aggression and outright violence. Iranian weaponry has been used by the Taliban against coalition forces in Afghanistan. Iranian arms and funds have ended up in the hands of terrorists in Lebanon and Gaza, and even in Syria, with its murderous government. Now imagine this same Iranian regime with nuclear weapons.

Negotiations are important in principle but not in practice when used as a stalling tactic by Iran for the completion of its illegal nuclear program.
