A new raid by the Iranian authorities on an office of the Nobel Peace Prize winner and lawyer, Shirin Ebadi, has been widely condemned. The French authorities summoned the Iranian ambassador to inform him of the European Union's disapproval.

Passive Resistance!

Iranian women need to learn from their counterparts in Italy to get Iranian men to rise against the regime!

Here's what happened in Italy:

Naples sex strike over fireworks

"New Year's Eve could go off without a bang for some Neapolitan men.

New Year's Eve could prove to be something of a damp squib for some men in the Italian city of Naples.

Hundreds of Neapolitan women have pledged to go without sex unless their men promise to refrain from setting off dangerous illegal fireworks.

Local authorities are backing the women and have sent out text messages urging the men to "make love, not explosions."

The women say it is the only way to persuade their partners that they are serious about their concerns."

But there's a problem here, Iranian men have an alternative called, "Seegheh."

I just wanted to add my sincere support for this incredible woman.  The more I read, the more impressed I am.  Would that she could be cloned a million times over!

I hope she continues to successfully stand up to these goons and remind them of who they really are.

I wish Iranians rise in support of an independent free, secular and united Iran in 2009.

If Mrs. Ebadi was not a Nobel prize Winner she would have been removed by these Persian Speaking Arabs long time ago.
