Box: 11365/9631 Address: Martyr Shah Cheraghi Street, Ferdowsi Avenue, Tehran – Islamic Republic of Iran In the Name of the Most High Viewpoint PRAYER TIMINGS Noon (Zohr) 12:17 UK Human Rights Report: Guilty as Charged By: Kayhan Int’l Staff Writer The Global Center to Support Human Rights has published a report on human rights violations in Britain. It’s the first-ever comprehensive report by the Iranian group documenting the persistent violation of human rights in Britain in the past two years. Under the document, almost every fortnight two women are killed by their colleagues. The figure is up 68% compared with 2013. This while the existing data and reports merely cover 40% of the cases in the country. The Tehran-based center also unveiled a similar report this month on human rights violations in the United States. According to the report, the U.S. has been one of the greatest producers and distributors of the world child pornography products, while it is now one of the only two countries in the world that have not yet joined the International Children’s Rights Convention. Violation of prisoner rights, privacy and minority rights, children and immigrant rights and freedom of speech, as well as racial discrimination, police brutality and sexual violence against women and children are just some of the important issues raised in the report. According to the Tehran-based rights group, the U.S. which claims to be an advocate of human rights is itself the biggest violator in the world: Last year, some 1,029 black people were killed by the police, over 35 people were executed, among them 18 blacks and 5 Hispanics, and 53 people were sentenced to death. The victims of abuse are typically the weakest and most vulnerable in U.S. society too: immigrants, racial and ethnic minorities, children, the elderly, the poor, and prisoners. The U.S. also ranks 46th in the world when it comes to freedom of press. But that’s not all. Reports coming from around the world, particularly from the Human Rights Watch, suggest that there are hundreds of court cases against American and British troops in occupied Iraq and Afghanistan who have committed crimes against humanity. To execute their perpetual global war on terrorism, the U.S. and the UK administrations have favored large-scale black ops, torture and drone assassination programs, as in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen. The UN reports continue to criticize the assassination program and drone strikes. They express concern with the “lack of transparency regarding the criteria for drone strikes, including the legal justification for specific attacks, and the lack of accountability for the loss of life resulting from such attacks.” Similarly, the United Nations last year passed a resolution against the criminal Zionist regime for violating basic human rights of an entire Palestinian nation! It’s only a matter of time before the world wakes up and takes a firm stance against these violators of human rights on a global scale. That day, the U.S., Britain and the Zionist regime will no longer be able to conceal their crimes and the world will no longer listen to them or take their unfounded allegations against Iran seriously, which has been one of the main victims of their weapons of mass destruction, state terrorism and human rights breaches. India Loses Monopoly on Soymeal Sales to Iran MUMBAI (Dispatches) -- India’s soymeal exports are set to hit a 26year low in the year ending March as easing of sanctions against Iran allows the key buyer to opt for cheaper South American supplies, industry officials said. Lower Indian sales could underpin Chicago soymeal futures, which fell almost 17% in 2014, while weak export demand could drag on domestic soybean prices. The oilseed is crushed to produce soyoil and the animal feed. As a result top buyers of Indian soymeal, such as Iran and Japan, are turning away. Taking advantage of curbs on dollar trade with Tehran amid sanctions over its nuclear program, India had built a monopoly in soymeal trade with Iran and commanded higher prices.

The Holy Qur’an (9.36) Evening(Maghreb) 17:46 Dawn(Fajr)“ Tomorrow” 05:40 Sunrise “Tomorrow” Senior advisor to the Leader Yahya Rahim Safavi is seen at an inaugural ceremony marking the opening of the 4th international general assembly of the Ahlul-Bayt in Tehran. TEHRAN (Dispatches) -- A senior advisor to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said here on Tuesday recent remarks by Zionist officials show they are scared of Iran’s reaction to Tel Aviv’s latest airstrike that martyred six Hezbollah members and an Iranian commander in Syria’s Golan Heights. Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi described as mere “lies” the claims by the occupying regime’s officials that they were not aware of the presence of an Iranian commander in the Hezbollah convoy, which came under attack by an Israeli helicopter while it was on a field reconnaissance mission in Golan earlier this month. “The nature of the Zionist regime is built on lies, carnage and crimes and their remarks reveal their fear of Iran’s reaction to this act of terror,” Safavi told Press TV. He added that the Zionist regime’s lies have become evident to all countries even the United States and Europeans. On January 18, an Israeli military helicopter fired two missiles into Amal Farms in the strategic southwestern Syrian city of Quneitra, close to the line separating the Syrian part of the Golan Heights from the Israeli-occupied sector. Six Hezbollah members as well as Brigadier General Muhammad Ali Allahdadi, an Iranian commander, lost their lives in the assault. U.S. Convicts Man in Iran Sabotage Leak WASHINGTON (Dispatches) -- A former CIA officer was convicted of leaking classified details of an operation to thwart Iran’s nuclear energy program to a New York Times reporter. Jurors convicted 47-year-old Jeffrey Sterling of all nine counts he faced in federal court. On the third day of deliberations, the jurors had told the judge that they could not reach a unanimous verdict. But they delivered guilty verdicts later in the afternoon after the judge urged them to keep talking. At issue in the two-week trial: Who told journalist James Risen about the secret mission, one that former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice testified was one of the government’s most closely held secrets as well as one of its best chances to thwart Iran’s nuclear program? The case was delayed for years as prosecutors fought to force Risen to divulge his sources, though they ultimately decided not to call him to testify once it became clear he would not reveal those sources even if jailed for contempt of court. Prosecutors had acknowledged a lack of direct evidence against Sterling but said the circumstantial evidence against him was overwhelming. Defense lawyers had said the evidence showed that Capitol Hill staffers who had been briefed on the classified operation were more likely the source of the leak. The plan involved using a CIA asset nicknamed Merlin, who had been a Russian nuclear engineer, to foist deliberately flawed nuclear blueprints on the Iranians, hoping they would spend years trying to develop parts that had no hope of ever working. Risen’s 2006 book, “State of War”, describes the mission as hopelessly botched, and possibly backfiring by giving the Iranians blueprints that could be useful to them if they sorted out the good information from the errors. In his closing arguments, prosecutor Eric Olshan said the chapter of Risen’s book seemed to be clearly written from Sterling’s perspective as Merlin’s case handler. The book describes the handler’s misgivings about the operation while others at the CIA push the plan through despite its risks. Furthermore, Sterling believed he had been mistreated and was angry that the agency refused to settle his racial discrimination complaint, Olshan said. Risen had written about that complaint, and he was known to have a relationship with Sterling. The two exchanged dozens of phone calls and emails, Olshan said. But defense lawyers said the government had no evidence that Risen and Sterling talked about anything classified in those phone calls and emails. The government failed to obtain Risen’s records to see who else he may have contacted. Defense attorney Barry Pollack said Risen first got wind of the operation in early 2003, within weeks of Sterling reporting his misgivings to staffers at a Senate intelligence committee — a channel that Sterling was legally allowed to pursue. Pollack said it makes more sense that a congressional staffer leaked to Risen. Following the attack, the occupying regime’s media quoted Tel Aviv’s officials as saying that the Israeli military had not been aware of the presence of the Iranian commander in the convoy. Hezbollah and Iran have vowed that their response to the attack would be extremely painful. Senior commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hussein Salami said last week that the Zionist regime should brace for “a special retaliation” in response for the attack in Golan Heights. Salami said the country planned to widen the battlefield with Israel, open- 07:07 ing a front across the West Bank. IRGC Commander Major General Muhammad Ali Jafari also warned that the Zionist entity “should await annihilating thunderbolts”. The attack in Quneitra has sparked fears within Occupied Palestine of Hezbollah’s possible retaliation. Israeli media have reported over the past days that the regime is closely monitoring the movements close to the Lebanese border and in the occupied Golan Heights. They say that after the attack, the occupying regime of Israel deployed its Iron Dome antimissile battery near the Lebanese border. And Tel Aviv shut down its airspace over the Golan Heights, ordering aircraft to stay away. Saudi King Revisited VATAN EMROOZ: Iranians know it just too well that on several occasions it was the former Saudi king who asked the United States to attack Iran militarily. He played a key role in spreading the Iranophobia campaign across the globe. Even Americans agree they were under immense pressure from Riyadh to attack Iran and its nuclear facilities. The Saudi king’s hands are also stained with the blood of resistance fighters and leaders. He himself on several times ordered the assassination of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah of Lebanon. And we won’t even talk about his devastating role in crushing the revolutions in in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya – or his arms aid and money to the terrorists hell-bent on destroying Iraq and Syria. Liquidating Palestine KHORASAN: The U.S. sponsorship of the negotiations between the Palestinians and the Zionists represents a direct cover for liquidating the Palestinian cause and displacing the remaining Palestinians under the socalled Jewish state. Arabs shouldn’t be partners responsible for the blood of their own people. The main purpose is not to promote peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis, but to prolong the Israeli-American occupation amid lecturing the Arabs about the alleged dangers of Iran. Enrichment Rights RESALAT: It is necessary to remember that as per NPT rules and regulations as well as the Safeguards Agreement, enrichment of uranium for the sole purpose of generating nuclear energy fuel is an inalienable right of all IAEA member states, including Iran. The right cannot be negotiated with any plan or proposal that fails to recognize it. That includes the ongoing nuclear talks with the West. Regional Standing ABRAR EQTESADI: Iran has a better position in fighting terrorism and resolving regional issues. Part of such a superior position is attributed to a number of dedicated individuals that are serving the nation. With the help of such a valuable taskforce plus practical guidelines of the Supreme Leader, our diplomats will undo the new conspiracy of the ominous triangle of the West and the Zionist regime, proving yet again that the Iranian nation will never give up its nuclear rights as per the international law or cave in to coercion and retreat from its justified position.
