Summary of Today's BroadcastRFE/RL Persian ServiceWednesday, April 03, 2002 * Reformists call for Middle East peace * Debate on referendum anniversary * New regulations on Friday prayer leaders * Illusions of recent Iranian immigrants to US US Defense Secretary: Iranians Will Topple Regime * Secretary Rumsfeld said at a press conference yesterday that the Iranian people would eventually rise against the Islamic Republic, which has denied them their rights. He also complained that Iran has permitted al-Qaeda terrorists to safely disperse to other countries. (Homayoun Majd, Washington) Iranian Reformists Call for Peaceful Means in a Letter to Arafat * To show their independence from the official media, a group of reformist journalists and MP's published a letter to Chairman Arafat calling for a peaceful resolution to the Middle East conflict. Calling themselves "Iranian Intellectuals," they delivered the letter to the Palestinian Authority's Tehran "embassy." Prominent reformist MP's were present, including some who had not signed the letter. Prominent newspaper editor Masha'allah Shamsolvaezin says the letter's demand for a fair and comprehensive peace clashes with the stated policies of the Islamic Republic and its harder line calling for the elimination of Israel. (Mina Baharmast) Tehran Newspapers Debate Islamic Republic Referendum * After the two-week New Year holidays, newspapers resumed publishing today with most commemorating the 23rd anniversary of the Islamic Republic referendum. The conservative newspaper Resalat criticized the reformists' views on democracy: "if the Islamic Republic were to be a democracy, it would have had the word "democratic" in its name from day one." Resalat said in the early days of the revolution, Ayatollah Khomeini rejected the word "democratic," since he knew that democracy would end in secularism. The conservative daily Keyhan, controlled by the Islamic Republic Leader, wrote that the Islamic Republic is the only regime in the world that allowed its people to choose their form of government. The reformist Nowruz wrote that the people's vote for an Islamic Republic did not mean rejection of a non-Islamic republic. Rather, it was meant to end the autocratic rule of the Shah. The reformist daily Bonyan wrote that democracy would prevent the use of religion as an instrument of power. It added the absolute rule of one Islamic Jurist is not the only form of Islamic government. (Mehdi Khalaji) New Bureaucratic Controls over Friday Prayer Leaders * New regulations announced by the Friday Prayer Policy Council centralized control of the Friday prayer system in Iran, increasing the Leader's control over an institution that had once been a political forum for independent-minded prominent local clerics.

But the Central Bank has not yet offered foreign exchange at the expected rate of 7,700 rials to the dollar, says London-based foreign exchange dealer Ali Pakpour.

The mother says she waited 23 years to get her children out of Iran. Her 27-year old daughter says some of her friends prefer to stay in Iran because drugs are cheaper and more accessible. Her 31-year-old brother, an accountant, says he is terrified about his future in the US. Professor Mehdi Bozorgmehr, Director of the Middle East and Middle East American Center of City University of New York, says Iranians who immigrated to the US after the revolution harbor an illusion of pre-revolutionary life in Iran, while recent arrivals bring a grand illusion about US life. He tells RFE/RL that unlike South Korean and Taiwanese immigrants who come to the US for economic reasons, the Iranian immigrants do not want to go back. (Behnam Nateghi, New York)
