ایران - سفر آخوند روحانی به قزوین و آبروریزی از عدم استقبال مردم+عکس
روز چهارشنبه هفتم مهر ۹۵ آخوند روحانی به قزوین سفر کرد از روز قبل برای استقبال از او آموزش و پرورش ازخانواده بچه های دبستانی حتی از کودکان کلاس اول رضایتنامه خواسته بود که در استقبال روحانی شرکت کنند. این کار باعث شده خانواده ها اعتراض کنند که به چه اطمینانی کودکان ما را برای استقبال می فرستید اگر مشکلی پیش بیاید چه کسی پاسخگو خواهد بود. مسئول آموزش و پرورش گفته در صورتیکه نیایند از نمره انضباط آنها کم می کنیم. برای استقبال مردم از روحانی، لباسهای مجانی، کلاه مجانی آب زلال و... غذای مجانی و... توزیع کرده بودند، اما مسیر تردد روحانی خلوت و سوت و کور بود. در عین حال مردم و جوانان از فرصت استفاده کرده و اعتراضات خود را در طول مسیر با بلند کردن دست نوشته‌ها و تراکتها بیان کردند و یا عکسهای روحانی و مقامات رژیم را پاره کردند. با در دست داشتن پلاکارد اعتراض به بیکاری و حقوقهای نجومی و دزدی و چپاول کارگزاران اعتراض می کردند. به گفته کارگزاران قرار بود روحانی دو روز در قزوین بماند ولی سفرش را یکروزه شد. در نامه‌یی، استانداری و فرمانداری قزوین کلیه بخشداریهای استان را موظف کرده‌اند که از همه روستاهای قزوین می‌بایست یک مینی‌بوس تا یک اتوبوس نفرات برای استقبال از آخوند روحانی بیاورند. هزینه ایاب و ذهاب این سفر توسط شهرداری قزوین پرداخت شده است. در قزوین گفته شده برخی از وزراء دولت روحانی ضمن هشدار به استاندار قزوین گفته اند: اگر بودجه استانی بیشتری می‌خواهید باید مراسم استقبال پرشور برگزار شود.

زیرکمیته امور تروریسم، منع گسترش تسلیحاتی و بازرگانی کمیته امور خارجی مجلس نمایندگان آمریکا طرح «قانون تحریم‌های سپاه پاسداران ایران» را طی چند روز آینده به گفتگو و رای خواهد گذاشت. بهنگام تصویب این طرح، که از سوی ۱۲ نماینده جمهوریخواه مجلس پیشنهاد شده، وزیر خزانه داری آمریکا موظف می‌شود در مدت ۳۰ روز با ارایه گزارشی به کنگره تعیین کند که آیا سپاه پاسداران از ویژگی های لازم برای نامیده شدن به عنوان یک نهاد تروریستی برخوردار است یا نه. از سوی دیگر قانون تازه ایی در کنگره آمریکا توسط جمهوری خواهان در ارتباط با اعدام‌های سال ۱۳۶۷ مطرح شده است. در این طرح قانونی آمده که طی چهار ماه در سال ۱۹۸۸ حکومت ایران زندانیان سیاسی را اعدام کرده‌ است. و آمران مجریان این کشتار، امروز از سران رژیم ایران هستند. این قانون از سازمان ملل متحد خواسته به وضع حقوق بشر در ایران با ایجاد کمیته‌ای ویژه در این زمینه اقدام کند و برای شناسایی افرادی که در آن ماجرا نقش داشته‌اند، تحقیقاتی را صورت دهد. معمولا اتحادیه اروپا از لیست گذاری دولت ایالات متحده پیروی میکند.

انتقاد از بازداشت «پرهزینه» هما هودفر
وب‌سایت محافظه‌کار «الف» از بازداشت افراد دوتابعیتی همچ.ن هما هودفر در ایران و سپس آزادی آنها انتقاد کرده و نوشته این نوع اقدام‌ها «هزینه‌های» زیادی را به «آبروی نیروهای اطلاعاتی» جمهوری اسلامی وارد می‌کند. نویسنده یادداشت این نوع بازداشت‌ها را «بی‌تدبیری» نامیده است. متن کامل یادداشت با عنوان «بازداشت‌های پر هزینه/ در حاشیه آزادی هما هودفر»: هودفر هم تحت فشار/چانه‌زنی/پادرمیانی یا هر چیز دیگری که مشخص نیست روز گذشته آزاد شد. سخنگوی وزارت خارجه گفت او به دلایل انساندوستانه از جمله بیماری، آزاد شد و از طریق کشور عمان به کانادا بازگشت. استاد بازنشسته دانشگاه کنکوردیا که معلوم نشد چرا او را گرفتند و چرا آزاد کردند. بنده نظر آنچنان مثبتی حتی به ایرانیان مذهبی مقیم کانادا ندارم چه برسد به ضد مذهب‌ها و یا ضد انقلاب‌هایی چون هما هودفر، فلذا اعتراضم از جهت دفاع از وی یا هم‌قطاران و هم‌فکران او نیست٬ بلکه دلخوری‌ام از جهت بی‌تدبیری‌ها و کارهای بی‌ثمری است که در سال‌های اخیر بارها شاهد آن بوده‌ایم. به نظرم این موضوع چند حالت بیشتر ندارد: ۱- یا این افراد دو تابعیتی جاسوس هستند، پس اگر هستند بعد دستگیری بدون ترس از خارجی‌ها با ارائه مدرک محاکمه شوند و به اشد مجازات برسند. ۲- یا مشکوک هستند و این شک در حدی است که ورودشان احتمال خطر برای کشور دارد، در این صورت سازمان‌های مربوطه در همان مبادی ورودی کشور آنها را برگردانند و به کشور راه ندهند. ۳- یا هیچ مدرکی بر علیه آنها وجود ندارد و فعالیت مشکوکی هم نداشته‌اند، در این صورت این بازداشت کردن‌ها برای چیست؟ اگر سوالی وجود دارد می‌شود به روش‌هایی چند جلسه صحبت «دوستانه» با آنها داشت و رفع شبهه کرد یا سوال پرسید و... دیگرنیازی به این بازداشت‌های‌ پر سر و صدا و پر هزینه نیست. این بازداشت های بدون محاکمه و بی‌سرانجام مثل سوهانی می‌مانند که ارباب رسانه‌های استکبار مدام بر آبروی نظام و کشور می‌کشند. مدام از ایران تصویری ناامن به جهان مخابره می‌کنند و ایران هراسی را تقویت می‌نمایند. همچنین نیروهای علاقمند به نظام در داخل را نسبت به اقتدار کشور و سازمان‌‌های اطلاعاتی بدگمان می‌کنند. علاقمندان به نظام از خود می‌پرسند اگر این‌ها جاسوس و مزدور بیگانه هستند چرا با یک فشار و یک جلسه محرمانه در سازمان ملل و جاهای دیگر آزادشان می‌کنید؟ و اگر نیستند چرا دست به این اقدامات می زنیم؟ بدیهی است آنچه در این میان بدست می آید تضعیف اقتدار کشور و آبروی نیروهای اطلاعاتی است که با این بازداشت‌ها و رها کردن‌های مشکوک و سیاسی خدشه‌دار می‌شود.

افشای یک فقره دیگر از مراودات مخفیانه بانکی دولت اوباما با رژیم ایران
ویکلی استاندارد۶مهر ۹۵ فاش کرد در ژوئیه گذشته دولت باراک اوباما حدود یک میلیون دلار را به حساب یک بانک رژیم ایران وایز کرده است. یعنی ماهها قبل از این‌که این دولت یک و هفت دهم میلیارد دلار را بصورت نقد به رژیم ایران بدهد. دولت اوباما همچنین برخی از جزییات این پرداخت بصورت وایر را به کنگره آمریکا اطلاع نداده بود و سایر جزئیات را به مطبوعات اشتباه گزارش کرده بود. باراک اوباما در ماه اوت امسال گفته بود پرداخت یک‌وهفت دهم میلیارد دلاری به رژیم ایران می‌باید به‌صورت نقد انجام می‌شد چرا که ما هیچ رابطه بانکی با این رژیم نداشتیم و نمی‌توانستیم پول را وایر کنیم. پرداخت این پول زمانی صورت گرفت که رژیم ایران چندین زندانی آمریکایی را آزاد کرد. جمهوریخواهان کنگره این پرداخت را نوعی باج دادن به رژیم ایران توصیف کردند.

قدرت نفتی ایران احیا شد / کارگردانی ایران در بازار نفت
ایران پیشنهاد عربستان مبنی‌بر توقف رشد تولید نفت کشور در مقابل کاهش تولید دیگر اعضای اوپک را رد کرد. در واقع شرایط در اوپک به‌گونه‌ای رقم خورده که سعودی‌ها برای فرار از فشار اقتصادی ناشی از افت قیمت نفت سناریوهای مختلفی روی میز ایران قرار می‌دهند و این ایران است که با تصمیمات خود به کارگردان بازار نفت بدل شده است. افزایش تولید نفت ایران و چشم‌انداز جذب سرمایه خارجی در پسابرجام و همچنین کاهش وابستگی اقتصاد کشور به نفت، سه عامل احیای قدرت ایران در اوپک محسوب می‌شود.

کشته شدن یک پناهجو توسط پلیس در برلین
ماموران پلیس برلین که به دلیل درگیری میان ساکنان یک اقامتگاه پناهجویان به محل اعزام شده بودند، با شلیک گلوله فردی مسلح به چاقو را از پای در آوردند. مهاجم قصد انتقام‌گیری از پناهجویی را داشته که متهم به "تعرض جنسی" است. به گفته پلیس آلمان یک پناهجوی ۲۹ ساله در منطقه "موابیت" برلین در نزدیکی اقامتگاه پناهجویان به ضرب گلوله ماموران پلیس از پای در آمده است. این مرد ۲۹ ساله شامگاه سه‌شنبه (۲۷ سپتامبر/ ۶ شهریور) در حالی که با چاقو به یک پناهجوی دیگر حمله‌ور شده بود، با شلیک پلیس به شدت زخمی شد و پس از ساعاتی در بیمارستانی در برلین جان سپرد. به گفته شاهدان عینی پس از درگیری در اقامتگاه پناهجویان، پلیس یکی از طرف‌های دعوا را دستگیر کرده و در حالی که با دستبند قصد بیرون آوردن او را داشته، طرف دیگر دعوا با چاقو به وی حمله کرده است. مهاجم فریاد می‌زده است: «نمی‌گذارم زنده بمانی.» به گفته سخنگوی پلیس برلین ماموران برای جلوگیری از خونریزی سعی کردند که مهاجم را از حمله به فرد دستگیر شده بازدارند، اما موفق نشده و به این ترتیب مجبور به استفاده از سلاح گرم شدند.

انفجار دو بمب در مسجد و مرکز کنفرانس های بین المللی شهر درسدن آلمان
بامداد روز سه‌شنبه ٢٧ سپتامبر/٦ مهر، انفجار دو بمب یک مسجد و مرکز کنفرانس‌های بین المللی شهر درسدن آلمان را به لرزه درآورد. پلیس اعلام کرد که این انفجار ها می تواند انگیزه بیگانه ستیزانه داشته و با سالگرد وحدت دو آلمان مرتبط باشد. همزمان، وزارت کشور آلمان گزارش داد که در هشت ماه نخست سال جاری سیاستمداران، مددکاران و رسانه های آلمانی 813 بار مورد حمله قرار گرفته اند. در عین حال صدراعظم آلمان با اشاره به افزایش تعداد گردشگران، این کشور را "امن" دانست. انگیزه و هویت کسانی که در مسجد و مرکز کنفرانس های بین المللی درسدن بمب گذاری کرده اند، هنوز روشن نیست، با این حال پلیس اعلام کرده است که این بمب گذاری ها که تلفات جانی نداشته اند، به احتمال فراوان با انگیزه های بیگانه ستیزانه صورت گرفته اند. درسدن در شمال شرقی آلمان مرکز ایالت زاکسن آنهالت است که در یک سال گذشته محل بیشترین حمله ها علیه پناهجویان و مسلمانان بوده است. جنبش "میهن پرستان اروپا علیه اسلامگرائی" و حزب راستگرا و بیگانه ستیز "آلترناتیو برای آلمان" در این ایالت از نفوذ زیادی برخوردار هستند. به گزارش پلیس محلی، بمب گذاری ها می تواند همچنین با بیست و هفتمین سالگرد وحدت دو آلمان در ارتباط باشد. ایالات آلمان شرقی سابق پس از ریزش دیوار برلین در روز سوم اکتبر سال 1989 به آلمان غربی پیوستند و از آن به بعد روز سوم اکتبر هرسال به عنوان "روز وحدت آلمان" در سراسر کشور جشن گرفته می شود. بمب گذاری در درسدن، درست در روزی صورت گرفته که وزارت کشور آلمان در پایسخ به پرسش فراکسیون حزب سبز در مجلس فدرال، "گزارش روند رشد خشونت" خود را تسلیم مجلس کرده است. به موجب این گزارش، در هشت ماه نخست سال جاری میلادی سیاستمداران، رسانه ها، نهادهای مددکاری و شخصیت های چپ آلمان 813 بار مورد حمله یا تعرض و تهدید قرار گرفته اند. قربانی این تهدیدها و حمله ها در 93 مورد رسانه ها و در 123 مورد نهادهای مددکاری بوده اند. گروه های دست راستی آلمان مسئول نیمی از حمله های انجام شده علیه سیاستمداران شناخته شده اند. آلمان، تاکنون یکی از امن ترین کشورهای جهان بوده است، گزارش تازه وزارت کشور نشان می دهد که به موازات رشد برق آسای گروه های نژادپرست و بیگانه ستیز، از این امنیت کاسته شده است. با این همه، همزمان با بمب گذاری در شهر درسدن و انتشار گزارش وزارت کشور، خانم آنگلا مرکل صدراعظم آلمان در نشست "مرکز گردشگری آلمان" گفت که "آلمان یک کشور امن است" و دولت می کوشد با تامین امنیت کشور، سهم خود را در رشد صنعت جهانگردی ایفا کند. به گز

داشتن عقیده سیاسی در زندگی فردی و اجتماعی انسان چقدر اهمیت دارد ؟
انسان از بدو تولد از خانواده و سپس از مدرسه و اطرافیانش مطالبی را می آموزد که در زندگی فردی و اجتماعی او اهمیتی زیادی دارند . بسته به اینکه فرد در چه خانواده ای رشد پیدا کند و یا در کدام محیط آموزشی مشغول تحصیل شود ، از اواسط سنین نوجوانی و جوانی نسبت به عقاید خاص سیاسی گرایش پیدا می کند . در بیشتر کشورهای دنیا به علت آزادی فعالیت احزاب، هر فرد که علاقمند باشد می تواند در برنامه های آنها شرکت کرده و اطلاعات مورد نظرش را به دست بیاورد. در نتیجه یک فرد جوان صرفنظر از شغلی که در آینده به آن مشغول خواهد شد اگر علاقه ای هم داشته باشد می تواند در فعالیتهای سیاسی مشارکت کند. به عبارت دیگر در جوامع پیشرفته ٫ انسانها صرفنظر از شغلی که دارند به یک یا دو فعالیت ورزشی یا تفریحی یا اجتماعی و یا سیاسی نیز می پردازند . چنانچه در کشورهای پیشرفته می بینیم پس از اتمام دوره ی ریاست جمهوری ٫ شخص «رئیس جمهور» یا «نخست وزیر پارلمان» به شغل اولیه خود و یا به دنبال علایق خود می رود و یا در فعالیتهای اجتماعی شرکت می کند . حال این سوال مطرح است که برای افراد عادی که اکثریت آحاد جامعه را تشکیل می دهند داشتن عقیده سیاسی و یا طرفداری از گروهی خاص تاثیری در زندگی روزمره شان خواهد داشت ؟

Wall Street rallies as OPEC reaches output deal

Traders work on the floor of the NYSEWall Street moved higher on Wednesday after an OPEC agreement to limit crude output fuelled a rally in oil and more than offset nervousness about a tight race for the U.S. presidency. The energy index jumped 4 percent and was set to have its best day since January after OPEC sources said the group has reached a deal to limit crude output at its policy meeting in November. "The energy sector has been the biggest drag on earnings for the past year and a half or two years, and if you can get some stability there, all of a sudden earnings start to look a lot better," said Mark Kepner, managing director at Themis Trading in Chatham, New Jersey.

The value of his 40 Wall Street property in downtown New York had also declined, according to Forbes, which said it has been tracking Trump's wealth for 34 years.

Wells Fargo may claw back some executive pay: report
The board of directors of Wells Fargo & Co. is reported to be considering clawing back some of the millions of dollars in pay to some of its top executives. The Wall Street Journal, citing an unnamed source, reported that Wells Fargo's board could move as soon as Tuesday to get back money from current CEO John Stumpf and Carrie Tolstedt, the bank's former head of retail banking.

A floor trader walks during afternoon trading at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in Hong KongBy Samuel Shen and John Ruwitch SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Chasing higher returns in a slowing economy, Chinese investors could soon dominate Hong Kong's stock market, likely redefining how shares, especially small-caps, are traded and priced there. Chinese money will account for a third of Hong Kong's stock trading turnover in three years, up from a tenth now, UBS and other brokers predict. Fund managers say the inflow of Chinese money will be driven by deregulation, fears of yuan depreciation, and yield chasing as there are still wide valuation gaps between the two markets.
