A number of Iranian and Egyptian women experts and officials have held a meeting to discuss developments in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, Press TV reports.

The one-day meeting, entitled Women’s Role in Egypt’s Revolution, was held in the Iranian capital Tehran on Tuesday.

During the gathering, the Egyptian women revolutionaries discussed the role that women played in the revolution that toppled former President Hosni Mubarak earlier this year.

They noted that Iran was a model for Egyptian revolutionaries during the early days of their struggle for freedom and democracy.

“The revolution in Egypt and other Arab countries, as well as the popular protests in the West, have all been inspired by Iran’s revolution,” Egyptian researcher Awatel Aboshady told Press TV on the sidelines of the meeting.

So, those who were once heroes of 9/11 are instead once again showing their true grit. Some 800 peaceful protesters, members of #occupywallstreet were effectively herded into a mass group on Brooklyn Bridge and arrested. NYCs finest has yet again proven Forrest Gump to be quite correct; “Stupid is as stupid does.” The thing that gets me in all of this is that the police in general, and it’s no different here in Sweden, really tell you they want your respect and really wish for you not to call them pigs, fascists, motherfuckers, ass kissers, idiots, and to smile as they arrest your family for doing absolutely nothing while their colleagues are buying drugs down the street and paying for it with prostitutes services.

Their sense of obligation to those they serve within the corporate world and radical interest groups is seemingly unshakable. In stark contrast, their sense of moral obligation to their constituents  is non-existent. Their basic ideology: science is anti-American, … Read More

Racism on the rise in Europe – Opinion – Al Jazeera English.  Very sad to hear that this is happening. I had hoped I’d gotten away from such rampant racisim when I left the US, but sadly it seems to be everywhere. I don’t want to sound like Rodney King, but Can’t we all just get along?  Racisim isn’t inborn, it’s learned, and as such it can be unlearned. I can only hope that with time it will pass.
