Iran’s elections are more democratic or that of U.S?

On the eve of presidential elections in Iran, we’re going to do a comparison between Iran and U.S elections.

This comparison helps to gain a better understanding of the Iranian elections and to indicate that contrary to claims by U.S. officials, Iran’s elections are held in a democratic and fair environment.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reiterated Saturday that the Islamic republic is not after building nuclear weapons.

He stated that what prevents Iran from seeking a nuclear weapon is not the fear from America, but the religious and Islamic belief which prohibits producing, using, or threatening by these weapons, and rather calls for removing them.

“We believe that nuclear weapons (in the world) must be obliterated, and we do not intend to make nuclear weapons. But if we had decided to possess nuclear weapons, no power could have prevented us.”

He considered that the contradiction in the US statements and acts is an indication to its irrationality, indicating that US President Barack Obama’s speech on preventing Iran from possessing a nuclear weapon is a forgery. » Read more

For example, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, during his address to the 67th annual session of the UN General Assembly » Read more

9 months ago

Often reported are the callous sanctions affecting Iranians in terms of medical conditions, devaluation of their currency, and the spike in prices of meats as well as other goods. Rarely have we seen the dark side of sanctions on the environment. The increasing pollution in Iran bolstered by U.S. led sanctions should alarm not only Iranians yet earth inhabitants on a macro scale. Pollution anywhere is pollution everywhere for what goes up must come down. Pollution has its effects on the atmosphere/ ozone layer, the biosphere and on the lithosphere. Above all, these toxins make way for harmful, long term effects on every living, breathing, and productive creature (human, plant and animal). It is time for those still in touch with nature and what it means to be human to speak against these
