Todays 32nd anniversary of the islamic revolution in Iran hardly gives any reason for celebration. Initially enthusiastically welcomed by many progressive people around the
world - including the socialist countries and churches - it soon became clear that this revolution brought to the iranian people anything else than freedom from corruption or an end to a totalitarian leadership.
The last 23 years were not only hallmarked by oppression of any free thoughts and violation of human rights, but also by a growing corruptionamong the religouos, political and armed forces. An article by B.Kalnoky and C. Wergin published recently in the german newspaper “Welt am Sonntag” describes the internal battle for economic influence between these ruling forces (Translated version see here).
There is hope, however, that the strength of the people of Iran, their cultural heritage and traditional civil values will overcome the current regime.
