(Ahmad Ra&apos;fat, Rome) <b>Rafsanjani Says US Counters Islamic Revolution with Radio Farda</b> * Former president Ali-Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani accused the US of starting <b>Radio Farda</b> to counter the Islamic Revolution. He said in a speech to the Islamic society of teachers that the launch of the 24-hour radio by the US "marks the enemy&apos;s change of tactic towards the Islamic Revolution." * Washington-based media analyst Mahmud Gudarzi tells <b>Radio Farda</b> that because of the widespread censorship of the news by the state-owned radio-TV monopoly, people in Iran turn to foreign-based radio and television broadcasts.

(Jean Khakzad) . رهبر جمهوري اسلامي آمريكا را متهم ساخت كه به خاطر كنترل منابع نفت عراق، تسلط بر منطقه و حمايت از اسرائيل مي خواهد به عراق حمله كند. وي گفت در حاليكه اعراب ديگر گفته هاي مقامات آمريكائي را باور نمي كنند، اين امكان وجود دارد كه بعضي از افراد به خاطر منافع كوتاه مدت با آمريكا همكاري كنند. وي گفت آمريكا با ادعاي اينكه حمله به عراق به منظور جنگ با تروريسم است، دنيا را فريب مي دهد. در حاليكه دولت ايران گفته است از تصميم شوراي امنيت سازمان ملل در باره عراق حمايت مي كند، رهبر جمهوري اسلامي كه حرف آخر را در ايران مي زند گفت بار ها گفته ايم كه هرنوع حمله اي را به عراق رد مي كنيم زيرا بيم آن مي رود كه حمله به عراق به تمامي منطقه آسيب برساند.
