Sarah Shourd with her mother, Nora, in Muscat, Oman
14 September 2010
Sarah Shourd detained for more than a year in Iran was released today. Her lawyer told reporters in Tehran that Shourd was indeed released and was undergoing formalities at the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran where she had been held in solitary confinement. Two other fellow American hikers still remain in prison.
UPDATE: Sarah Shourd's flight took off from Tehran's Merabad airport following her release from prison.
UPDATE: She has reunited with her mother in Mascat, Oman.
Good for her and her family.
I remember the Iranian prisoner/ diplomat, in Iraq had his leg bone "drilled" by the CIA.
His case is pending, but imagine the difference, I am talking to the scum who keeps attacking Iran as terrorist
And I remember many friends still at Evin suffering from humiliation and torture under the current government. Isn't it about time to judge Iran's human rights records on its own, without the need to compare to others?
By all respect, I accept your concern, butI can NOT accept an Israeli or an American or some British or French scumbag of a hypocrite to attack and criticize Iran verbally or...
If we Iranians were to sell our country out for the recognitions of others, then there would never
have been an Iran left.
First we have to neutrolize the threats then slowly chnage the rest quietly and make sure the western systems wont take the credit for any of the reforms.
Other words, Iran is a family matter. we deal with it in time.
Thanks for your comments. Your continued support of this blog is highly appreciated.
On the issue of democratic reforms, two points:
1. A strong Iran is a democratic Iran. Working for democratic reforms should be on the top of anyone's agenda to further strengthen the country. Nuclear technology and arms industry are only part of the strength of a nation.
2. There should be no worries if democratic reforms would be considered of Western origin, after all the nuclear technology and arms industry are of Western origin too!
When you refer to the "Iranians" - are you also including Kurds and people of the Bahai faith? I don't believe that they regard themselves as being included in the current Iranian family. Perhaps when the current Regime is changed( which it will be form the inside or from the outside), there may be some light for them.
Nicely said... With the last name of London you would think Darlush would have sympathy for the Brits.
I am not gonna divert to this cheap minimalistic discussions (just for the records... all Iranians)
Only The divide and rule policy of the anti Iranians, makes you think yourself as different to me.
and Niclely said dude... khod guzi va khod khandi ???
You are either with Iran or against it, if against get cancer and die, if for Iran then Bless you.

incase your intellect did not understand the sense of mentioning the name London
What is wrong with you Iranians, you should be proud of your technology prowess and your health and mortality increase for all the population.I have met many immigrants from Iran in Europe who appear so far right wing that it makes the Zionist appear good guys. Well done Iran your country is an inspiration for the hard oppressed people against Zionism.
I am not Iranian but admire your patriotic President who is standing for all Iranians! and putting Iran first. Democracy is not facebook or twitter!
...did I hear Facebook and Twitter: weapons of mass DISTRACTION !
Sounds like the granade with the bad haircut needs to have his porn taken from him.
I also agree with Nader... why are so many Islamic leaders so silent about the oppression of women, slavery and murder... and about stoning a woman to death because she was accused of adultery.
In a recent ranking of countries in which Christians are most persecuted, Iran ranked second only to North Korea, according to advocacy group Open Doors.
How come you can build a mosque at ground zero but I can't build a church next to your mosque?
Why does a Seattle cartoonist have to ghost herself because of an Islamic clerics death threat fatwa?
by the way,
I am against bulding a church next to a school or an orphanage.
I am also against building a synagouge next to a hospital (organ harvesting)
how does that sound
Sir Dariush London

Sir Dariush London
You remind me of terry tibs from facejacker. No wonder the gas prices are so high, your right light is always broken.
“Thank you my 7:50. Every time I smell it, I shall be reminded of you.”
