New York (CNN) -- For years, Nobel Peace laureate Shirin Ebadihas been speaking out against human rights violations in her country of Iran, where her defense of political prisoners and support for human rights and democracy have earned her the ire of the ruling regime.

In 2008, Iranian authorities shut down the Center for the Defense of Human Rights, of which she is president, and since 2009, she has been living in exile.

Not One Significant comment on Libya ? except generalities ...

Isn't she speaking for Muslims worldwide and Not merely for Iranians ?

Is her Loyalty to the Peace Prize or to the Laureates ?  

Q: And in your opinion, does the current U.S. president respect human rights?

A: Mr. Obama has so far shown that he respects human rights.

DK Jaan,

Thanks for the post.

The unmasking of the Reformists will continue and at some point they will see the light! This Regime will not reform itself and will do whatever it can to stay in power.
