Does she not go to Iran every now and then?

by kazem0574 on

I may be wrong, but if she does, wont she need to be seen to comply to some degree hence having a sort of hejab? I am probably wrong!!!


The cap is her trade mark.

by TheMrs on

The cap is her trade mark. If you see hair with that black cap, you know who she is. I think it makes her look like Ahmad Shah Masoud.

I don't understand how someone can be a journalist and a political activist at the same time. If you're a journalist, you're supposed to be objective and report on things. If you have an opinion and want to write about your opinions, then shouldn't you be called a writer?

I think of her as a political activist.


Ms. Alinejad, I am proud of you

by Mehrban on

Your political views are your own.   Also is the choice of wearing a hat or not.  You are brave, committed and you are doing something to bring about positive change in Iran.  Stay strong.

"Masih is awesome", I'll go with that!

It's Official - No War with Iran

It's already been decided now that no attack on Iran will occur. Instead Goldman Sachs will open an office to sell derivatives .....

US banks want to open branches in Iran

Four American banks, including Citigroup and Goldman Sachs, file requests with Central Bank of Iran. If approved, they will be able to open branches in free trade zone, and later perhaps in Tehran

Four American banks, including Citigroup and Goldman Sachs, have filed requests to open branches in Iran, a Tehran-based daily reported over the weekend.

According to the newspaper, the official requests were submitted to the Central Bank of Iran about 20 days ago, and if approved, the banks will be able to send delegations to the country's free trade zone.

Later, if they prove to meet Iran's banking laws, the four banks may open branches in the country's big cities, including Tehran.

The newspaper notes that the new Obama administration in the United States enabled a slight improvement in the relations between the two countries. The American president was recently quoted as saying that he was ready to reach out to countries like Iran.

The new administration has also decided to hold direct talks between American representatives and Iranian envoys on the Iranian nuclear plan.

Goldman Sachs and Citigroup were badly hurt by the credit crisis and are looking for new markets in order to improve their financial situation.

Goldman Sachs recently reported a significant improvement in its situation, with its first quarter reports for 2009 including a net profit of $1.66 billion. Citigroup, which received $45 billion in aid, also released positive reports for the first quarter of the year, after losing more than $18 billion in 2008.

Masih is awsome

by David ET on

but unfortunately she still feels that she should defend Khatami's and alike....

She somehow has not moved beyond the 4 names of Khatami, Mousavi, Karoubi. rafsanjani among 70 million Iranians ....

But her views has improved since she has left Iran...

The "brain's thinking"

by Demo on

& the "wisdom" are what matter the most. "Rossarie" and "chador" are both intevented by the self claimed "clergies." What does the combination of "Masih", "Ali", and the "Cap" indicate then????


The cap is her Hejab, alternative to "Rossarie"

by kazem0574 on

Cap is better I should think.


The cap...

by P_T_B_A on

I am with you Peykan.  That hat is so stupid.


شتر سواری دولا دولا نمیشه


She is a brave soul and I wish she could go one step further down the endowment path and loose the miserable cap.
