:: ای کاش نفت نداشتیم ولی مردم‌سالاری داشتیم
ای کاش نفت نداشتیم ولی مردم‌سالاری داشتیم؛ نفت، دولت‌های ما را رانتی و اقتصاد ما را بیمار و تنبل کرد. قانون اساسی سال 1906 در عصر مشروطه، محور فعالیت جنبش دموکراسی خواهی بود ولی همزمانی و همزادی نفت با جنبش مشروطه‌خواهی، اتفاق میمون و مبارکی نبود.

حیات، مال و موجودیت من و امثال من در برابر حیات و استقلال و عظمت و سر افرازی میلیون ها ایرانی ونسل های متوالی این مملکت کوچکترین ارزشی ندارد. از آنچه برایم پیش آمده هیچ تاسفی ندارم و یقین دارم وظیفه ی تاریخی خود را تا سر حد امکان انجام دادم. عمر من و شما هر کس چند صباحی دیر یا زود به پایان می رسد. ولی آنچه می ماند حیات و سرافرازی یک ملت مظلوم و ستمدیده است.

:: ايرانيان و يهوديان به روايت يك عاشقانۀ حماسی
یکی از واکنش‌هایی که سخنرانی جنجالی بنیامین نتانیاهو در کنگرۀ آمریکا برانگیخت استفاده او از قصه به جای سند عینی بود. این قصه بر اساس افسانه ای است که از "دشمنی دیرینه ایرانیان و یهودیان" سخن می گوید. بنیامین نتانیاهو با رجوع به "کتاب استر" از عهد عتیق که به عنوان قصه ای – در مقابل نوشتار مستند و تاریخی – مطرح است، مرز بین فانتزی و واقعیت را برای اثبات دیدگاه‌های سیاسی‌اش شکست. به گفتۀ مورخانی مثل مایکل کوگان و آدل برلین این اشتباه همیشه تکرار شده و در طول تاریخ، قصه استر بارها با تاریخ‌نگاری اشتباه گرفته شده است. نتانیاهو از دسیسه‌چینی یک وزیر قدرتمند پارسی گفت که قصد داشته تا "ملت یهود را حدود ۲۵۰۰ سال پیش نابود کند. اما یک زن شجاع یهودی، ملکه استر، این دسیسه را فاش کرد و به یهودیان این فرصت را داد تا آنها بتوانند از خودشان در مقابل دشمنانشان دفاع کنند." هالیوود متهم است که در شماری از فیلم ها، تاریخ ایران را وارونه یا مخدوش به تصویر کشیده، ولی این بار یک سیاستمدار در حالی تاریخ را به شیوه فیلمی تخیلی ترسیم کرده که استثنائاً خود هالیوود همین داستان را ۵۵ سال پیش با انصاف و تخیل بیش‌تری بازگو کرده است

:: کشتار دسته جمعی و تدریجی زندانیان در بند ۸ زندان اوین
یکی از زندانیان محبوس در بند ۸ زندان اوین، وضعیت این بند از اندرزگاه اوین را فاجعه بار توصیف کرده است. به گزارش «سحام»، این بند از اندرزگاه اوین شامل چهارسالن به شماره‌های ۷ و ۸ و ۹ و ۱۰ است.مدتی‌است زندانیانی که از بند سپاه پاسداران(بند الف)، خارج می‌شوند به این بند فرستاده می‌شوند تا ایام حبس خود را در بند ۸ زندان اوین سپری کنند. هم اکنون حسین رونقی ملکی، آرش صادقی و تعداد دیگری از زندانیان سیاسی دراین بند محبوس هستند و شرایط نامناسبی را سپری می‌کنند، این شرایط زمانی‌ طاقت‌فرسا می‌شود که اغلب زندانیان عادی و سیاسی محبوس در این بند دچار بیماری‌های متعدد جسمی هستند و مامورین زندان از اعزام آن‌ها به بهداری و بیمارستان خارج از زندان برای درمان جلوگیری می‌کنند. زندانیان سیاسی نیز درکنار زندانیان عادی سایر جرایم، در این بند حضور دارند.به عنوان نمونه سالن شماره ۸ بند ۸ زندان اوین، که ظرفیت ۱۰۸ نفر زندانی را دارد، اکنون با تراکم ۲۴۲ نفر زندانی مواجه است، به طوری‌که زندانیان محبوس در این سالن، شب و روز در راهروهای منتهی به توالت‌های عمومی به‌سر می‌برند و مجبورهستند شب‌ها را نیز در این راهروها استراحت کنند.زندانیان محبوس دراین بند از زندان اوین، درسرمای زمستان مشکلات عدیده‌ای دارند. این زندانیان به حدی از سرما رنج می‌برند که گاهی ساعت‌های متمادی درهنگام شب به دلیل سرما نمی‌توانند استراحت کنند و از نبود وسایل گرمایشی به شدت رنج می‌برند. این زندانیان به ناچار برای گرم کردن خود مجبورند در سالن‌های متراکم از زندانیان قدم بزنند تا بتوانند بدن خود را گرم نگه دارند.

:: ما آتش پرستیم!
منوچهر جمالی، فیلسوف و فرزانهء ایرانشهر، در بارهء جشن چهارشنبه سوری چنین می نویسد: « درفرهنگ ایران، خود ِ خدا، تحول می یافت و میشد و میگشت. زندگی کردن در زمان، خدائی میشد. زندگی در زمان، پرستش میشد. پرستاری از زندگی در زمان، پرستیدن میشد. پرستیدن، درهزوارش، به معنای شاد کردن و شاد شدن ( شادونیتن ) است. و« شاده » نام ِخود خداست. شادونین، به معنای آنست که انسان، درشادشدن در زندگی در زمان،« خدا» میشود،« رام و فیروز» میشود. جشن چهارشنبه سوری، برشالوده این غایت بزرگ درایران، پیدایش یافته است. آتش ، اصل روشنی (= بینش ) و گرمی (= مهر) است . گذرکردن از درون آتش از روز ِ« فیروز» به« روزهای رام و بهرام » که در پی میآیند، چه معنائی داشت؟ گذشتن از آتش، معنای تحول یافتن آتش به روشنی ( بینش و راستی ) و گرمی (مهر) را دارد . « سور و عروسی و شادی»، جامه ایست که خدا برای وجود ما بریده و دوخته است. به عبارت دیگر، غایتِ گوهری ِ زندگی در گیتی، جشن عروسی انسان، یا انبازی و آمیزش او، با طبیعت و انسانها و خدا و معنا و گوهر چیزها در زمانست. این شناخت و مهرورزی و کشش بدان، ازکجا آمده است؟ این سراندیشه ایست که در فرهنگ ایران، در« جشن چهارشنبه سوری» به خود، شکل داده است، ولی در اثر مبارزاتی شدید و درازمدت، که با این « غایت »، معنا و محتوای آن شده، این پیوند میان جشن چهارشنبه سوری، و غایت زندگی در گیتی، فراموش ساخته شده است، ولی خود ِ آئین ِظاهری جشن، ازملت، نگاهداشته شده است. امروزه، رویکرد به سکولاریته یا« زندگانی زمانی»، آتشی است که از زیر خاکستر هزاره ها، ازهمین جشن و از جشنهای دیگر ایران، باز افروخته و شعله ور میشود. سیمرغ، با زدن بالش، باد می وزد و آتش را میافروزد... با چهارشنبه سوری غایت زندگی،« سور و شادی » میشود... چهارشنبه سوری جشن ِپیدایشِ زمان و زندگی ِتازه از آهنگِ موسیقی و از گـرمیِ ِمهـر است.» پایان نقل قول. جشن چهارشنبه سوری یک اتفاق ساده نیست. یک بازگشت ژرف به آینده است، یک گم شده ایست که باز یافته ایم. هرساله در جشن چهارشنبه سوری وجود و اصالت و گوهر ایرانی ِ خود را به خویشتن یادآوری می کنیم. یادآوری می کنیم که ما این چیزی که از ایرانیان ساخته اند نیستیم. ما بنده و برده و عبدالله نیستیم. تازی نیستیم. ما از جنس شغال های بیابان های حجاز نیستیم. این اسلام و استعمار عرب و آخوند مطلقاً هیچ ربطی به ما ایرانیان نداشت و ندارد. آن خدا و آن وحدانیت و جهان بینی ِ پروردهء آن از اساس بیگانه و متضاد و مغایر و متنافر با جهان سیمرغی و خدای خوشه ای ایرانیان بود. ایرانیان تخمهء هستی و زندگی و شادی و خرد جشن ساز را در درون خویش یافته بودند و همگام با ضربان قلب زمین و همنوا با آهنگ گردش کائنات می رقصیدند و بی هیچ واسطه ای، بی دخالت هیچ رسول و فرشته و ملائکه ای جان جهان را می نوشیدند و مست بادهء ناب، در مهر و همبستگی و هماهنگی با ذره ذرهء وجود، با باد و آتش و خاک و آب و گیاه در جشنی بی پایان و در پردیسی رنگارنگ و در آغوش تن گرم سیمرغ و در خدایگی ِ خود رستگار و سعادتمند بودند. امروز به آشکارا مشاهده می کنیم که ایرانشهر، سرزمین اهورایی ما، سرتاسر قلمروی اهریمن گردیده است. زمانی که فردوسی پاکسرشت دریغ می دانست که ایران کنام پلنگان و شیران شود، اگر روزگار ما را دیده بود که فقط در تهران 28 هزار مسجد و حسینیه و هیئت مذهبی و تکیه و مهدیه و دارالقران کنام ددان و وحوش مسلمان گشته، ای بسا به مانند صادق هدایت شیر گاز(!) اتاق خوابش را باز می گذاشت و چنین بخت شوم و زندگی ِ نکبت بار و ایران اشغال شده توسط کفتاران مسلمان را لحظه ای تحمل نمی کرد. ( جالب اینجاست که اعجوبه های روشنفکری که دم از تبعیض در حکومت اسلام می زنند، شاکی اند که چرا سنی ها در تهران حتا یک مسجد ندارند. گویا رفع تبعیض زمانی صورت می گیرد که علاوه بر شغال های شیعهء مذهب حقنهء جعفری و اثنی عشری که قدم به قدم سرزمین اهورایی را کنام خود ساخته اند، انواع تروریست وهابی و سلفی و حنفی و علفی و شافعی و شیافی و حنبلی و چنبلی نیز هریک صدها مسجد و مقبره و مدرسهء اسلامی در تهران دایر کنند و پایتخت ایرانشهر را تبدیل کنند به« پارک وحش سرنگتی» تا به گمان ایشان عدالت برقرار شود. از خود هم نمی پرسند که در این صورت خودشان در میان این همه لانه و کنام وحوش چگونه می توانستند زندگی کنند؟) باری، جشن چهارشنبه سوری افزون بر بنیادهای فرهنگی و تمدنی و آیینی ِ خود، اما امروز باری مبارزاتی با اشغالگران بیگانه پرست را نیز حمل می کند. امروز چهارشنبه سوری تنها و تنها آیین و جشن ایرانی است که اهریمن چشم دیدنش را ندارد. آیت الله ها و اسلامفروشان تاکنون به هیچ طریقی نتوانسته اند تحریفش کنند، لوثش کنند و معجونی اسلامی از آن بسازند. به همین دلیل است که چهارشنبه سوری همواره آماج تیرهای کینه و نفرت اسلامی و الهی ِ آیت الله ها بوده است. ما با جشن چهارشنبه سوری از هر داشتهء باستانی و کهن خود ایرانی تریم. ما با چهارشنبه سوری به اندازه ای به جان و گوهر ایرانی ِ خود نزدیک می شویم که اهریمن را به وحشت می اندازیم. ما با چهارشنبه سوری اهریمن را کلافه کرده ایم. در فرهنگ ایران از اهریمن به یک دهان یاد شده است. اهریمن فقط و فقط یک دهان است. این اهریمن، این اسلام و آخوند همهء یادگارها و داشته ها و فروزه های نیک ما را بلعیده است، به جز جشن چهارشنبه سوری. حتا نوروز را هم با نهادن هرزنامهء قرآن بر سفرهء هفت سین و عبارات زشت عربی ِ حول حالنا الی احسن الحال... و حدیث و روایت هایی که از شغال های تازی نقل کرده و جعل کرده، آلوده کرده است. اما اهریمن چهارشنبه سوری را هرگز نمی تواند ببلعد، چون دهانش خواهد سوخت. به شدت هم خواهد سوخت!

Purplebricks Eyes Latest UK Tech Flotation

Purplebricks Eyes Latest UK Tech FlotationOne of the UK's fastest-growing online estate agents is drawing up plans for a stock market listing that would provide capital for an aggressive assault on established high street rivals. Sky News has learnt that Purplebricks, which counts the City's best-known fund manager among its shareholders, has been talking to investment banks in recent weeks about working on a flotation. The business is among a new breed of digitally-led estate agents which are attempting to bring a similar level of customer experience to industries such as holiday bookings and grocery shopping, which have been revolutionised by online competitors. Purplebricks was set up less than a year ago, and now has backing from Neil Woodford, the former Invesco Perpetual fund manager, who set up his own asset management venture last year.

Wall Street firms more convinced of June rate hike: Reuters poll

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeBy Yasmeen Abutaleb NEW YORK (Reuters) - Many of Wall Street's biggest banks are more convinced the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates in June after a strong February jobs report on Friday pointed to sustained economic growth and as the jobless rate hit a more than 6-1/2 year-low. Nine of 16 primary dealers, or the banks that deal directly with the Fed, said they expect a June lift-off date, compared to 10 of 19 who predicted the rate hike in a Feb. 6 poll. All but one expect more than one rate hike in 2015. Though just over half the economists polled predicted a mid-year rate hike, six dealers polled said their conviction that the Fed would raise rates in three months time had increased in the last month.

Nasdaq market share drops in fee and rebate cutting experiment

The Nasdaq logo is etched into glass at the headquarters for the Nasdaq in New YorkBy John McCrank NEW YORK (Reuters) - Nasdaq OMX Group said on Friday its experiment in lowering exchange fees and rebates in 14 stocks has so far led to lower market share in those names on its exchange as many electronic market making firms sought higher rebates elsewhere. The experiment, which began on Feb. 2 and will run for at least four months, includes 14 stocks that had their associated fees lowered on Nasdaq's exchange to 5 cents per 100 shares from 30 cents per 100 shares, and their rebates cut to 4 cents per 100 shares from 29 cents per 100 shares. Stock exchanges pay rebates as incentives to market makers that post resting orders on both sides of the best bid and offer in order to help get trades done for other market participants.

Wall Street falls after payrolls; Apple to join Dow

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeThe unemployment rate ticked down to 5.5 percent from 5.7 percent in January. "If we do see start to see some signs of firming in the inflation numbers in particular, then we would have greater confidence around that." In a shakeup on the Dow Jones Industrial Average, Apple Inc, the nation's largest company by market value, will join the index later this month, replacing AT&T Inc. Apple shares rose 1.4 percent to $128.13, while AT&T shed 1.6 percent to $33.47. "This brings the Dow into reality and the twenty-first century," said Richard Sichel, chief investment officer AT Philadelphia Trust Co in Philadelphia. "It will make the Dow a more interesting index to watch, but also more volatile since it is replacing a nice, steady old name with an interesting and exciting tech and retail company." The Dow Jones industrial average fell 159.91 points, or 0.88 percent, to 17,975.81, the S&P 500 lost 16.24 points, or 0.77 percent, to 2,084.8 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 25.12 points, or 0.5 percent, to 4,957.69.

S&P downgrades Areva debt further into junk status

The Areva Tower, headquarters of French nuclear reactor maker Areva, is seen at La Defense business district in Courbevoie near ParisBy Geert De Clercq PARIS (Reuters) - Standard & Poor's cut the credit rating of Areva two notches deeper into non-investment grade status after the French nuclear group posted a record 2014 loss. The rating agency cut Areva's long-term debt to BB- from BB+ with a developing outlook, which means it could upgrade if Areva bolsters its balance sheet or downgrade further by 2016. S&P downgraded Areva one notch into junk status in November after the firm had issued a profit warning. On Thursday evening, Areva was also removed from France's SBF 120 index .

China reviews giving banks stock broking licences - regulator
China is considering issuing banks with brokerage licences as part of reforms that will permit financial institutions to conduct mixed businesses to boost their performance and develop the capital market, the stock regulator said on Friday. The government's stock market development blueprint issued last year has encouraged such mixture and the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) is studying details on implementation, the regulator said on its official Weibo. "While such study is going on and must go through necessary procedures, there is no timetable to announce related policies," the CSRC said. A surprise interest rate cut by the central bank in November and the launch of a scheme between Hong Kong and Shanghai the same month, allowing direct trading of stocks on each other's bourses, also helped boost stock market volume.

Weak Justice for Wall Street: How a Twisted Double Standard Saved Citigroup Millions
$20 million payment for two years — something you would never tolerate from your own customers — and face absolutely no consequences. A case study of these separate sets of rules for powerful institutions came this week when Bloomberg Business revealed that Citigroup, which would not exist today without substantial financial support from U.S. taxpayers, forgot to pay 23,000 borrowers entitled to restitution under something called the Independent Foreclosure Reviews (IFR). Because I’m making a very specific point, let's ignore for the moment the plain fact that the IFR, designed to check all foreclosures in 2009 and 2010 for processing errors, was neither “independent” nor a “review.” It was ultimately aborted and turned into a cash settlement, where most borrowers — including those who improperly lost their home — received less than $1,000 and as little as $300 in compensation for this destruction of their wealth and financial security. The IFR was one of the most disgraceful episodes in the entire financial fraud accountability charade of the past few years.

By Alastair Sharp TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's main stock index rose in a broad but shallow rally on Thursday, led by a 5 percent jump in shares of Canadian Natural Resources Ltd after the major oil and gas producer surprised investors with strong quarterly results.

"Earnings definitely help reduce a lot of the fog." Canadian Natural jumped to C$38.64 after the company's earnings beat expectations.

Peugeot's blue-chip index comeback spurs recovery
(Adds company reaction, closing share prices) By Laurence Frost PARIS, March 5 (Reuters) - PSA Peugeot Citroen will return to France's benchmark CAC-40 index, stock market operator Euronext said on Thursday, delivering a likely boost to the French carmaker as it emerges from a prolonged European sales slump and bailout. Peugeot will replace Gemalto, which had already been identified as a possible exit candidate before reports last month that millions of its mobile phone SIM cards had been hacked by U.S. and British intelligence. CAC-40 re-entry could boost Peugeot's shares - up 49 percent so far this year - by triggering automatic buying on behalf of exchange-traded and tracker funds. Spiralling losses led Peugeot to a 3 billion euro ($3.31 billion) bailout last year, in which the French government and Chinese state-controlled carmaker Dongfeng took matching 14 percent stakes in the Paris-based company.

Carrefour lifts capital spend to cement turnaround

The logo of Carrefour is seen at the entrance of the Carrefour's Bercy hypermarket in Charenton Le Pont, near ParisBy Dominique Vidalon PARIS (Reuters) - Carrefour SA, the world's second-largest retailer, reported higher profits on Thursday as a revival of its European hypermarkets started to pay off and said it would lift capital spending further this year to cement that recovery. The group also reiterated it would be ready to go ahead this year with a stock market flotation in Brazil, its second-largest market after France, if market conditions allow. Carrefour, which ranks second globally to Wal-Mart Stores Inc, said 2014 operating profit rose 6.7 percent to 2.39 billion euros ($2.6 billion), in line with a Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S poll average of 2.38 billion. The performance reflected improved profitability at its core French and European businesses and robust growth in Brazil.
