Tried Baba Karam?
U.S. needs a different strategy to get Iran's attention

By Babak Yektafar
June 30, 2000
The Iranian

Not long ago a friend told me that he overheard Secretary Albright joking with her protégé James Rubin prior to his celebrated marriage to almighty cable news goddess Christiane Amanpour, that he now needs to learn how to dance like an Iranian. Although I can not verify this alleged comment, the idea may not be a bad one after all. I believe that it will do the Secretary and her staff of advisors a world of good to take the time and learn how to groove to "Baba Karam," a quintessential Iranian dance number >>> GO TO FEATURE

Red ink
The battle for freedom of the press

By Azadeh Hamehdoni
June 29, 2000
The Iranian

A summerized version of a study by Azadeh Hamedoni titled "A look into the Print Media in Iran". Hamedoni has a masters degree in broadcast and print journalism from the University of California, Berkeley.


Iran is a country being revolutionized through the print media. The deep transformations began three years ago when Mohammad Khatami was elected president. Since then there has been an emergence of many new liberal newspapers fighting for freedom. Newspapers are taking a stance that has rarely been seen since the 1979 revolution. The liberal press is helping millions of young Iranians stand up against religious dictatorship and push for democracy. >>> GO TO FEATURE

Five poems

By Banu

The Iranian

From "An ending without words":

when the doctor entered
i panicked and
even consindered escaping
through a window.
as i examined the room's exits
he disinfected his utensils
in a blue liquid smelling pungently.
he then warmed the tools
in a small oven
before they entered me. >>> GO TO FEATURE

Going west
MOO... MOO... MOO...

By Ali Hosseini
June 27, 2000
The Iranian

The office was actually a warehouse. A middle-aged man in worn-out overalls met me at the door. He gazed at me for a few seconds, then pushed aside the tools that were on the top of a table, spat in the trash can, and put an application form in front of me. While I was filling out the application, I saw him spit a few more times, wiping his mouth with the palm of his hand. I felt uneasy. When I handed him the application, I realized that the side of his lower jaw was a little puffed up, and when he spat a viscous brownish liquid came out of the corner of his mouth. I thought the poor man must have a toothache. It reminded me of back home in the village and the dark brown plant root used to ease a pain.

"Mr. Hoss... Hooss...?"

"Just call me Ali." >>> GO TO FEATURE
