:: پایان مذاکرات در وین، آغاز روزهای سخت تندروها در تهران است.
علی خامنه ای همچنین می تواند یک رویکرد دوگانه داشته باشد، سکوت کند و یا در یک سخنرانی دو پهلو اعلام کند که با مفاد توافق موافقت چندانی ندارد و به اجرای آن بدبین است و در طول یکی دو سال آینده، در صورت بروز مشکلات اجرایی وارد عمل شود و توافق را بر هم زند، مانند ماجرای توافق هسته ای در سال 83. چنین گزینه ای با توجه به سوابق رفتاری رهبر جمهوری اسلامی عجیب و غیرمحتمل نیست. سرانجام اینکه رهبر جمهوری اسلامی می تواند بار نهایی را بر دوش مجلس ایران بیندازد و پذیرش نهایی آن را منوط به تصویب توافق در مجلس کند. ظاهرا کم هزینه ترین و موثرترین راه حل در شرایط کنونی برای علی خامنه ای، راه حل مجلس است. تصویب توافق هسته ای در مجلس اصولگرا، راه بر انتقادات احتمالی بر رهبر جمهوری اسلامی می بندد، نمایشی از عقل جمعی در جمهوری اسلامی خواهد بود، نیازی به امضای مستقیم او ندارد و پشتوانه قانونی برای دولت و همچنین شان نظارتی برای مجلس ایجاد می کند، تبلیغ سیاسی خوبی برای نمایندگان اصولگرا در انتخابات آینده می شود که نمایش دهند اهل توافق و مذاکره هستند. در عین حال رد توافق توسط مجلس هم می تواند پوششی باشد برای فرار رهبری جمهوری اسلامی از مسئولیت شکست. با این حال برای رهبر جمهوری اسلامی که همواره عادت داشته حرف آخر را خودش بزند، تن دادن به چنین راه حل هایی به شدت دشوار است. حتی در صورت تمایل او به تن دادن به عقل جمعی، گزینه تصویب در شورای عالی امنیت ملی با روحیه و شخصیت سیاسی او همخوانی بیشتری دارد. در عین حال، هر کدام از این گزاره ها دشواری خودشان را دارند و سناریوها به آسانی این چند خط که نوشت شد، نیستند ولی آنچه مسلم است آمدن یک پیش نویس بدون امضا به تهران، کشنده ترین گزینه ممکن است در شرایط فعلی است. نوشتن توافق داستان پرونده هسته ای نیست، به تعبیر یک ضرب المثل ایرانی که می گوید کار را آن کرد که تمام کرد، اکنون امضا و تایید توافق است که بخش اصلی ماجرا شده است. رهبر جمهوری اسلامی و تندروها تاکنون حرفی درباره اینکه توافق کنونی یک توافق خوب است، نزده اند، بنابراین طبیعی است که مایل به پذیرش مسئولیت امضای یک توافق بد نیستند، پایان مذاکرات در وین، آغاز روزهای سخت تندروها در تهران است.

:: یونان طلبکاران این کشور را به "تروریسم" متهم کرد
"یانیس واروفاکیس"، وزیر اقتصاد یونان امروز طلبکاران بین المللی این کشور را متهم کرد که سیاست وحشت و ترور را در قبال یونانیان در پیش گرفته اند. وزیر اقتصاد یونان همچنین گفته است : اگر اتحادیۀ اروپا یونان را به سمت فروپاشی اقتصادی سوق بدهد یک هزار میلیارد یورو از دست خواهد داد. یک هفته پس از تعطیلی بانک های یونان، مردم این کشور فردا از خلال یک همه پرسی به این پرسش پاسخ خواهند داد که آیا پیشنهادهای طلبکاران بین المللی یونان را می پذیرند یا نه؟ گفته می شود که به موجب این پیشنهادها کمک های مالی جدیدی در اختیار یونان قرار خواهند گرفت، هر چند یونان در حال حاضر قادر به پرداخت قروض خود نیست. دیروز جمعه سوم ژوئیه نخست وزیر چپگرای یونان، آلکسیس سیپراس، در یک اجتماع بزرگ در مرکز شهر آتن از رأی دهندگان یونانی خواست که در همه پرسی روز یکشنبه رأی منفی بدهند. بر اساس نظرسنجی ها آرای مثبت و منفی در این همه پرسی با یکدیگر برابری می کنند. وزیر اقتصاد یونان معتقد است که برای اتحادیۀ اروپا همه پرسی روز یکشنبه یک داو بزرگ سیاسی محسوب می شود و به همین دلیل کشورهای اروپایی نمی توانند یونان را رها سازند. وی همچنین ابراز اطمینان کرده است که صرف نظر از نتیجۀ همه پرسی فردا، اتحادیه اروپا و یونان با یکدیگر به توافق خواهند رسید. وی اضافه کرده است که در صورت فروپاشی اقتصادی یونان یک هزار میلیارد یورو که معادل تولید ناخالص اسپانیا است از بین خواهد رفت و اروپا نمی تواند چنین گزینه ای را به سادگی بپذیرد. وزیر اقتصاد یونان سپس خطاب به طلبکاران بین المللی کشورش گفته است که آنها با اقدامات شان بانک های یونان را به تعطیلی کشانده اند تا مردم این کشور را بترسانند و این اقدام نامی جز "تروریسم" به معنای "وحشت پراکنی" ندارد.

:: موضع خامنه ای: مهمترین فساد کشور افشای دستور من برای بورسیه کردن "کودن ها" بود!
این اعتراف همراه با اعتراض خامنه ای بموضوع افشای بورسیه های غیرقانونی از این جهت بسیار مهم است که او معمولاً در اختلافات و فسادها و بچاپ بچاپ ها و انواع فسق و فجور و آمارهای اختلاس و فساد و فحشا و اعتیاد خانمانسوز کمترین موضع گیری علنی نمی کند و همواره مثل ضرب المثل "نه خانی آمده است و نه خانی رفته است" خودش را بجهالت و کر و کوری می زند. تا جائیکه حداکثر موضع گیری علنی او بر می گردد به اختلاس 3000 میلیاردی در پروندۀ مه آفرید خسروی مرحوم که آن جملۀ معروف "کش ندهید" را گفت. و البته کش هم ندادند و بعد از اینکه با نیرنگ و فریب و قول بخشش مه آفرید بدبخت را تخلیۀ اطلاعاتی کردند و تا قران آخر دارایی هایش را گرفتند اعدامش کردند. بدون اینکه به سایر شرکای پرونده که حداقل سه نفر دیگرشان به اعدام محکوم شده بودند کاری داشته باشند؛ و پرونده را مختومه کردند. و خوب است یک حاشیه ای هم بزنم به آدم زرنگ محبوبم بابک زنجانی و یک دستمریزاد هم به او بگویم. زنجانی که از جنس خودشان است و اینها را خوب می شناسد می دانست و می داند که اگر اعتراف بکند و مهمتر از آن جای پول ها را نشان بدهد بلافاصله اعدام خواهد شد. بنابراین تا کنون از هرنوع همکاری سرباز زده و مطمئن است که تا پول ها مخفی است او هم کشته نخواهد شد. 2- اما اینکه خامنه ای اینقدر حساس است به دانشگاه که ناچار می شود رویۀ سکوت بی اعتنایش راجع به همۀ موارد فساد و تباهی ناشی از استراتژی غلطش را وا نهد و فساد زدایی از دانشگاه و دانش را فسادزایی معرفی و علنی می کند؛ به این دلیل

:: افت شدید سطح آب علت فرونشست زمین در دشت ورامین است
برداشت بیش از حد مجاز از سفره‌های آب زیرزمینی موجب فرونشست بیش از ۷۰۰ کیلومتر مربع از دشت ورامین شده است. به سبب فرونشست این زمین‌ها، حفره‌های چند صد متری در دشت ورامین ایجاد شده است. به گزارش خبرگزاری مهر، سطح آب دشت ورامین طی ۱۳ سال گذشته به میزان ۱۵ متر افت کرده که این امر موجب شده است که برای دستیابی به آب لازم برای کشاورزی چاه‌ها کف‌شکنی شوند. دشت ورامین که شامل اراضی زیر کشت و باغات در شهرستان‌های ورامین، پیشوا و پاکدشت است یکی از کانون‌های اصلی کشاورزی استان تهران به حساب می‌آید. خسرو ارتقایی، مدیرعامل شرکت آب منطقه استان تهران، حفر ۴۰۰ حلقه چاه آب در این استان را جوابگوی مشکل بی‌آبی این منطقه نمی‌داند و دلیل فرونشست دشت ورامین و شهریار را افزایش بی‌رویه میزان برداشت آب از سفره‌های زیرزمینی و حفر چاه‌های غیرمجاز در دهه اول پس از انقلاب برمی‌شمرد. در برنامه چهارم توسعه، در مجموع ۱۱ دشت در چهار استان خراسان رضوی، کرمان، اصفهان، تهران و قزوین به‌عنوان محدوده‌های در خطر فرونشست مورد بررسی قرار گرفته‌اند. سه دشت تهران، ساوجبلاغ و ورامین در استان تهران در مجموع با ۵۱ سانتی‌متر فرونشست زمین در محدوده خطر قرار دارند. ایران با میانگین بارندگی سالانه حدود ۲۵۰ میلی‌‌متر، کمترین میزان بارندگی در آسیا را داراست. با آغاز تابستان ۹۴، استان‌های تهران، فارس، سمنان و لرستان وارد هفتمین سال پیاپی خشکسالی شدید شده‌اند.

:: دفاع آیت الله خامنه ای از مهمترین پروندۀ فساد علمی در دولت احمدی نژاد
رهبر جمهوری اسلامی ایران در دیدار با جمعی از اساتید و مسئولان دانشگاه های ایران گفت که اتفاقات و اظهارات یکی دو سال اخیر در مورد "بورسیه های غیرقانونی" دولت محمود احمدی نژاد "سیاسی بازی" بر اساس اخبار و ادعاهای غیرواقعی بوده است. آیت الله خامنه ای سپس گفت که بر اساس "گزارش ها و بررسی های دقیقی" که به او ارایه شده، تخلفی صورت نگرفته بود و اگر عده ای نیز برخلاف قانون امتیازی به دست آورده بودند، به جای جاروجنجال، مسئله باید از طریق قانونی دنبال و حل می شد. آیت الله خامنه ای سپس اضافه کرده است که در ماجرای موسوم به بورسیه های غیرقانونی به عدۀ زیادی "ظلم شد" که "این هم خلاف قانون بود و هم خلاف اخلاق". در پی این سخنان محمد مهدی زاهدی، وزیر سابق علوم و رییس فعلی کمیسیون آموزش و تحقیقات مجلس شورای اسلامی، خواستار عذرخواهی دولت یازدهم شد و حمیدرضا ترقی، عضو شورای مرکزی حزب مؤتلفه، ماجرای موسوم به بورسیه های غیرقانونی را "دروغ پردازی فتنه گران" در دولت یازدهم علیه سه هزار دانشجو اعلام کرد. سایت "کلمه"، وابسته به میرحسین موسوی، نوشته است که موضع رهبر جمهوری اسلامی دربارۀ بزرگترین پروندۀ فساد علمی در ایران که به از میان رفتن میلیاردها دلار سرمایه ملی کشور منجر شد، بی شباهت با فرمان وی درخصوص هزاران میلیارد تومان اختلاس بانکی نیست که طی آن آیت الله خامنه ای از جراید و مسئولان خواست که بیش از حد موضوع را "کش ندهند."

:: آیت اللهِ کارخانه دزد!
یک: فردا دوشنبه با دکتر ملکی و سایر اعضای لگام، و دوستان و همراهان همیشگی به حمایت از بانو نرگس محمدی بر خواهیم خاست. فردا دوشنبه پانزدهم تیرماه وی را از زندان به دادگاه انقلاب می آورند تا پرونده ی تازه ای برای وی بگشایند. ما لگامی ها در نامه ای به قاضی صلواتی خواهیم نوشت که ما همگی در بر پا داشتن لگام با نرگس محمدی همرأی و هم نظر و همراهیم. هر حکمی برای وی صادر می کنی برای ما نیز در نظر بگیر که اگر این نکنی معلوم می شود یکی از دکل های دزدیده شده در خانه ی توست. دو: دیروز عصر با دکتر ملکی و دوستان لگام رفتیم به خانه ی مهندس حشمت الله طبرزدی که به تازگی بعد از تحمل سالها زندان و توهین و بد رفتاری، از زندان آزاد شده است. در خانه ی طبرزدی از بانوی وی سپاس گفتم بخاطر تحمل سالها ظلم آشکارِ این نظام اسلامی. در آنجا همسر مهندس حشمت الله طبرزدی نیز بود. رویین عطوفت اکنون در زندان است و قرار است ده یازده سالی نیز در زندان بماند. جرمش؟ جمع کردن عده ای که دور هم بنشینند و کتاب بخوانند. سه: همسر رویین از قول شوهرش گفت که همین دیروز در بند هشت زندان اوین غوغایی بوده. مأموران دو نفر را که ظاهراُ قصد فرار داشته اند گرفته و به قصد کشت آن دو را زده بودند و چشم و چال شان را در آورده و با لباسهای پاره و سر و رویی خونین و دست و پایی شکسته، آن دو را در راهروی بند می گردانده اند تا لابد عبرتی باشند برای دیگران. که رویین به این رفتار وحشیانه ی مأموران اعتراض می کند و عقوبتِ این کار غیر انسانی را به رخ شان می کشد که مأموران سخت تهدیدش می کنند به انفرادی و هر چه که در پستوهایشان یافت می شود. چهار: مهندس طبرزدی را مردی عیالوار و خانواده دار و سر فراز و ایستاده و بلند نگر یافتم. سرشار از انرژی است این مرد. و برای آینده ی خانواده اش: ایرانِ عزیز، هزار نقشه در سر دارد. می گفت: خبر همه ی فعالیت های شما و لگامی ها فردایش به داخل زندان می رسید و ما را دلگرم تر می کرد. بویژه آنجا که در حمایت از نرگس محمدی رفتید جلوی زندان اوین و در داخل داسرای اوین بر درهای شیشه ای اش پای کوفتید. و گفت: فعالیت مدنی و نافرمانی مدنی یعنی همین. در کشورهای دیگر مردم معترض شیشه می شکنند و جاهایی را به آتش می کشند اما شما به همان چند تا لگد اکتفا کردی. به وی گفتم: خبر نداری برای پس گرفتن اموالم از سپاه چه راهی را برگزیده ام! چه راهی؟ به زودی خواهم گفت. در این راه، شکایت از رهبر، دستمایه ای است برای حضور در جایی که یک آیت الله کارخانه دزد را به رسوایی می کشد. محمد نوری زاد چهاردهم تیرماه نود و چهار – تهران

:: علم‌الهدی خریداران بلیت کنسرت‌ها را "اقلیتی هوس‌باز و شهوتران" نامید
احمد علم‌الهدی، امام جمعه موقت مشهد خریداران بلیت کنسرت‌های موسیقی را "اقلیتی هوس‌باز و شهوتران" نامید. او برخی مسئولان را متهم کرد که "راه را برای شهوترانی باز کرده‌اند" و هشدار داد که نباید از "شهوترانان" طرفداری کنند. سید احمد علم‌الهدی، امام جمعه موقت مشهد که چندی پیش گفته بود "باید تا گردن زدن مطربان پیش رفت"، در اظهار نظری جدید تماشاگران کنسرت‌ها را اقلیتی "هوس‌باز و شهوتران خواند" و مسئولان را متهم کرد که راه را برای "شهوترانی" باز کرده‌اند. به گزارش تابناک، وی در مراسم تفسیر قرآن یادآور شد که "برخی با مواضع‌شان پا جای پای شمر می‌گذارند". او بدون ذکر نام هشدار داد: «افرادی که مسئولیت دارند نباید راه را برای شهوترانی دیگران باز کنند». بر اساس این گزارش، علم‌الهدی می‌گوید، یکی از مسئولان به او گفته است: «چرا شما مزاحم مردم می‌شوید و به برگزاری کنسرت ایراد می‌گیرید» و او پاسخ داده است: «بعضی از کنسرت‌ها بلیت‌هایشان ۷۰ هزار تومان است و افرادی که این بلیت را خریداری می‌کنند یک اقلیت هوس‌باز هستند؛ شما به عنوان کسی که مسئولیت در نظام دارید می‌‌خواهید مسیر را برای شهوترانی باز کنید؟» امام جمعه مشهد چندی پیش و در پی لغو کنسرت علیرضا قربانی در شهرستان چناران، از کنسرت‌های موسیقی با عنوان "مطرب‌بازی" یاد کرده بود. او با استناد به روایات مذهبی یادآور شده بود که "چون تمام شهر مشهد حرم امام رضا محسوب می‌شود"، برگزاری کنسرت و به زعم او "مطرب‌بازی" در این شهر، برگزاری کنسرت درحرم امام رضا است.

آقای احمدی‌نژاد گفت: هزینه‌های آژانس انرژی اتمی در سال چقدر است؟ گفتم نمی‌دانم. مثلا چندصد ‌میلیون دلار. گفتند شما همین حالا به البرادعی زنگ بزنید و بگویید ما کل مخارج آژانس را پرداخت می‌کنیم. گفتم اولا آژانس نمی‌تواند بپذیرد، چون برای مخارج آژانس و بودجه آن، مقرراتی وجود دارد و ثانیا ما چنین اختیاری نداریم، چون اگر بخواهیم به ‌جایی کمک بلاعوض کنیم، مجلس باید تصویب کند. آقای احمدی‌نژاد گفتند: من به شما می‌گویم، شما چه‌کار دارید؟ از کتاب خاطرات حسن روحانی --- سؤال اساسی طنز بالا توسط کدام خالق آثار فلسفی نوشته شده است: الف- جواد رضویان ب- مهران غفوریان پ- حمید ماهی‌صفت ت- حسن ریوندی مانیفست احمدی‌نژادی ایده‌های آقای احمدی‌نژاد به نظر ما ایده‌های کاملی بود که متأسفانه با اینکه هشت‌سال همه امکانات و بودجه کاملا بدون نظارت دستش بود، کسی قدرش را ندانست و درکل به نظر ما احمدی‌نژاد حیف شد. شما به ‌سادگی پاسخ احمدی‌نژاد برای حل مشکل آژانس انرژی اتمی را نگاه کنید. بغضتان نمی‌گیرد؟ گویی وسط بیابون، اتوبوس خراب شده باشد و کودکی خردسال به راننده بگوید خب یه ماشین دیگه بخر و سریع ما‌رو برسون. قربون دل ساده و پاکش برم که حیف شد. وقتی که من بچه بودم ما هم بچه بودیم دوست داشتیم بزرگ شدیم پلیس شویم. بابام قول داده بود بزرگ شدم برایم پاسگاه بزند. حالا آقای احمدی‌نژاد هم لابد بچه بوده دلش می‌خواسته راننده بشود، باباش گفته بوده بزرگ شدی برات آژانس می‌زنم. والا ما نمی‌دانیم. در ادامه گفتم شما من را خواستید تا به من چنین توصیه‌ای بکنید یا مسائل مربوط به هسته‌ای را از من بپرسید؟! گفتند من نظرم را به شما می‌گویم. گفتم من فکر کردم من را خواسته‌اید تا به شما مشورت بدهم. اگر می‌خواهید چنین دستوراتی را بدون مشورت و تصویب در جلسه سران بدهید، خوب است زودتر، دبیر جدیدی را منصوب کنید و این دستورات را به او بدهید و با او خداحافظی کردم. پس از پایان این ملاقات، تلفنی با آقای علی لاریجانی صحبت کردم و گفتم ظاهرا باید زودتر خودتان را آماده کنید و دبیرخانه را تحویل بگیرید. پوریا عالمی

Chinese stocks rise after Beijing unleashes emergency support

Man is seen in front of a board showing a graph of stock prices at a brokerage office in BeijingIn an extraordinary weekend of policy moves, brokerages and fund managers vowed to buy massive amounts of stocks, helped by China's state-backed margin finance company, which in turn would be aided by a direct line of liquidity from the central bank. Oliver Barron, China policy research analyst at NSBO, said it wasn't just faith in the markets at stake after investors had ignored official measures to prop up the market as equity indexes slid around 12 percent last week. The rapid decline of China's previously booming stock market, which by the end of last week had fallen around 30 percent from a mid-June peak, had become a major headache for President Xi Jinping and China's top leaders, who were already struggling to avert a sharper economic slowdown.

Oil prices tumble after Greece vote, China stock market turmoil
SINGAPORE: Oil prices fell sharply early on Monday after Greece rejected austerity measures demanded in return for bailout money and as China rolled out an unprecedented series of steps to prevent a full-blown stock market crash. The result of the Greek referendum put in doubt its continued place in the single currency, pulling down the euro in early trading on Monday. “With Greece reserves running low and no immediate bailout funds on the horizon, Greece is on a straight path out of the euro zone,” said Howie Lee of Singapore-based brokerage Phillip Futures. “Early morning indices’ movements have shown the likes of the Nikkei and the STI to have fallen. The selling is likely to spread to European and U.S. markets once they open.” In China, stock markets face a make-or-break week after officials rolled out a series of measures to prevent a full-blown stock market crash that would threaten the world’s second-largest economy, although share prices rocketed on Monday in response to Beijing’s measures. International benchmark Brent futures were down around half a dollar at $59.80 per barrel at 0200 GMT, and U.S. crude futures were at $55.07 a barrel, down almost $2 since they last traded before the July 4 national holiday. The falls meant that both crude futures were at their lowest levels since mid-April. “Uncertainty over Greece is bearish for oil.

China's 'shadow lenders' line pockets even as bourses bomb
SHANGHAI/BEIJING (Reuters) - China's vast network of "gray market" lenders have reaped big profits from lending money to individuals and companies to buy stocks, but as markets slump their customers face heavy losses after borrowing up to 10 times their starting capital. Global investors are increasingly worried about the scale of leverage in China's stock market, fearing the impact of a crash on the ordinary retail investors who dominate it could destabilize the world's second biggest economy just as growth is slowing. The risks have been magnified by the gray or shadow market - a network of state-owned commercial banks, trust companies, fund managers, and loosely regulated grassroots finance firms.
