Summary of Iran Stories in Today&apos;s BroadcastsBehnam NateghiSunday, July 13, 2003 <b>Judiciary Arrests Khatami&apos;s Press Advisor, Closes <i>Hambastegi</i></b> • Instead of closing the paper, which could be costly and controversial, the judiciary arrested Vahdi Pour-Ostad and Hossein Bastani, key columnists of the reformist Tehran daily <i>Yaas-e Now</i>. At a time when most newspapers operate under a blanket of fear, Bastani, a press advisor to President Khatami, enjoyed a relative secure corner to pour his heart out in <i>Yaas Now</i> and the pro-Khatami party Participation Front&apos;s website Rooydad, following in the steps of jailed reformist journalists Akbar Ganji and Emadedin Baqi. However, it seems that Tehran prosecutor Said Mortazavi, was unimpressed with Bastani&apos;s credintials, and gave no reason for the arrests. Mortazavi, former press court judge, is famous for closing more than 30 newspapers in less than two years.

London-based historian <b>Mashallah Ajudani</b> and pro-democracy activist and former Tehran&apos;s Meli University professor <b>Ahmad Tahmasbi</b> discuss the past and future role of political parties in Iran. • Compared to pre-revolutionary Iran, people are more aware of their rights and demands, and it is now the time to organize themselves in political parties with distinguished demands, Tahmasbi says. Iran has so far fought with three historical dictatorships, monarchy, clerical and communism, and is about to embrace democracy, he adds. • I agree, Iran&apos;s four traditional political groups – monarchists, Islamists, leftists and nationalists – have all been historically undemocratic.

(Shahram Mirian, Cologne) . فريبا مودت (راديو فردا): پل برمر، مسئول آمريکايي اداره امور عراق امروز اخطار کرد که در ماههاي آينده بايد در انتظار درگيريهاي خشونت بار تازه اي در عراق بود. آقاي برمر مي گويد: اقليتي کوچک و ناچيز، بقاياي تلخ کام حکومت صدام حسين، تروريستهاي خارجي، و افراطيون زير نفوذ جمهوري اسلامي با برقراري هرگونه امنيتي در عراق مخالفند. آقاي برمر تاکيد کرد: هيچ کس نبايد در عزم ما براي استفاده از قدرت در برابر اقدامات خرابکارانه ترديد کند. اما اکبر هاشمي رفسنجاني، رئيس مجمع تشخيص مصلحت نظام دو روز پيش خبر هرگونه مداخله جمهوري اسلامي در امور عراق را نادرست خواند. مع هذا از اينکه آمريکا به گفته او در «باتلاق عراق» گرفتار شده است، ابراز خشنودي کرد. در اين حال درباره موضع آمريکا در قبال جمهوري اسلامي، ميان تحليلگران اختلاف نظر وجود دارد. عده اي معتقدند آمريکا خواهان سرنگوني حکومت جمهوري اسلامي است و در اين راه آشکارا بايد به ميدان بيايد. اما عده ديگري بر پايه گفته هاي اخير وزير خارجه آمريکا معتقدند که واشنگتن بايد از هرگونه مداخله اي در درگيريهاي جناحي در ايران بپرهيزد. امير طاهري، نويسنده و تحليلگر شبکه تلويزيوني CNN در اين زمينه به شهرام ميريان از راديو فردا مي گويد: امير طاهري (نويسنده و تحليلگر شبکه تلويزيوني CNN): در مورد هدف نهايي ايالات متحده در مورد ايران، اختلافي در داخل حکومت آقاي بوش وجود ندارد. اين هدف نهايي در کتابي که دو سال پيش در مورد استراتژي امنيتي ايالات متحده منتشر شد، به خوبي روشن شده. در اين کتاب مي خوانيم که امنيت ملي ايالات متحده تا موقعي که رژيمهاي غير دموکراتيک وجود دارند، در خطر خواهد بود. بنابراين گسترش دمواکراسي در سراسر جهان براي حفظ امنيت ملي ايالات متحده اهميت دارد. به عبارت ديگر رژيم کنوني ايران بايد تغيير کند. اختلافي که در حکومت آقاي بوش وجود دارد بر سر متدها و روشهاي اين تغيير است. البته يک نظر اين است که اين تغيير به صورت استحاله، چند مرحله اي، و با کمک نيروهايي در داخل خود رژيم کنوني باشد، يک نظر ديگر اين است که ايران در آستانه يک تغيير انقلابي قرار دارد و ايالات متحده بايستي با يک آميزه اي از فشارهاي ديپلماتيک و نظامي و اقتصادي به براندازي رژيم کنوني کمک بکند. اين بحث ادامه دارد، ولي در هر حال بايستي وضع در ايران عوض شود و بايستي رژيم کنوني ايران سياستها و استراتژيهاي دراز مدتش را عوض کند يا اين که خودش را در خطر سقوط کامل قرار دهد. شهرام ميريان (راديو فردا): يعني به گونه اي با قضيه بازجويي خوب يا بازجويي بد روبرو هستيم که يکي با متهم مهرباني مي کند و ديگري با او رفتار تند دارد، اما در واقع هر دو هدفي مشترک را دنبال مي کنند. امير طاهري: بله، کاملا. هدف مشترک همانطور که مي دانيد اين است که ايالات متحده فکر مي کند که تنها در کشورهايي مثل ايران، ليبي، کره شمالي، سودان، سوريه، يا عراق (که البته الان عوض شده) ممکن است پايگاههاي تروريستي عليه ايالات متحده يا متحدان و دوستان ايالات متحده به وجود آيد و اين نکته مهمي هست که کشورهاي دموکراتيک تهديدي براي حمله به يکديگر حساب نمي شوند. مثلا کانادا ممکن نيست موشک درست کند که بخواهد آن را عليه ايالات متحده به کار برد. بنابراين ديگر مسئله اين نيست که دموکراسي چيز خوب يا لوکسي است، مسئله اين است که براي امنيت ملي ايالات متحده لازم است. مثلا هم اکنون در جمهوري اسلامي 22 سازمان تروريستي از کشورهاي مختلف (از کلمبيا گرفته که اصلا به ايران ربطي ندارد، تا فيليپين) پايگاه و دفتر دارند. به اين جهت موضوعي که الان براي رژيم ايران مطرح است اين است که يا بايستي به طور کلي رفتارش را عوض کند (اين پيشنهاد وزارت خارجه آمريکا است)، يا به طور کلي بايد پرسنل خود رژيم هم عوض شوند. ش.م: آقاي طاهري، شما از نقش آمريکا صحبت کرديد. در اين جا پرسش بعدي من راجع به نقش بريتانيا در قبال ايران است. امير طاهري: مي دانيم که بريتانيا ديالوگ خيلي وسيعي با جمهوري اسلامي برقرار کرده است. آقاي جک استراو، وزير خارجه بريتانيا 4 بار به ايران سفر کرده و ساعتهاي متمادي با رهبران جمهوري اسلامي گفتگو داشته. هفته آينده آقاي توني بلر، نخست وزير بريتانيا براي گفتگو با آقاي جرج بوش، رئيس جمهوري ايالات متحده به واشنگتن خواهد رفت و مسئله ايران در صدر گفتگوهاي دو طرف قرار دارد. البته مي دانيد که دولت بريتانيا هم از جنبش دموکراسي در ايران حمايت مي کرده است. آقاي بلر در مجلس عوام رسما گفت که ايشان پشتييبان اين حرکت دموکراتيک در ايران هستند. در هر حال نظر من اين است که بحث بر سر ايران تا 4-3 ماه ديگر ادامه خواهد داشت، ولي به هر حال به نتيجه خواهد رسيد و يک استراتژي واحد هم در ايالات متحده، هم در بريتانيا، و در مقياس وسيعتر حتي در اروپا و روسيه شکل خواهد گرفت. امير طاهري، محقق روزنامه نگار كهنه كار و تحليلگر شبکه تلويزيوني CNN در مصاحبه با راديو فردا مي گويد که مقامات دولت بوش بر سر هدف نهائي، يعني استقرار دمكراسي در ايران، اختلاف ندارند. اختلافي که هست بر سر متدها و روشهاي تغيير حكومت ايران به دمكراسي است. يک نظر اين است که اين تغيير به صورت استحاله، چند مرحله اي، و با کمک نيروهايي در داخل خود رژيم کنوني باشد؛ يک نظر ديگر اين است که ايران در آستانه يک تغيير انقلابي قرار دارد و ايالات متحده بايستي با يک آميزه اي از فشارهاي ديپلماتيک و نظامي و اقتصادي به براندازي رژيم کنوني کمک بکند.
