As far as I know, quite a few Iranian nationals studied in the former "Eastern block", mainly for two very simple reasons: their chosen subject and the fact that it was cheaper.


She's spot on

What Teheran Times ignores ....

by radius-of-the-persian-cat on

I would never consider Teheran Times judgements serious. They are mainly propaganda. They "very wisely" ignore for instance that Mrs. Wagenknecht is among the most persistent critics of the economic links that exist between german industry and the IRI government. There were numerous blogs on this issue on IC. Mrs. Wagenknecht does not avoid any angry reactions from the establishment when she points again and again to the fact, that too often there are economic and financial interests that prevail an open judgement of human rights.

Whatever Mrs. Wagenknecht is cited for in Teheran Times, she never tried to defend the violations of human right in IRI.

Thanks for letting us know she has an iranian father.  A shame they lost contact with each other. Maybe he would be proud of her today. She is a tough person, and intelligent enough to know that politics has a lot to do with long-term vision, but also with short-term alliances. 

I don't understand the link to Mel Brooks Hitler persiflage ?

IRI is a big fan of this lady:


According to Tehran Times:

"...............Germany's Left Party Vice President Sahra Wagenknecht says Iran has never initiated a war during the whole modern history.

In modern history, Iran has never started any war and the 8-year war with Iraq was imposed on the country by executed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and under the auspices of Western governments, IRNA cited Wagenknecht as saying in an interview with German magazine, Juedische Allgemeine, on Saturday.

The German politician criticized the West's “double standards” and argued that while Western powers put pressure on Iran, they turn a blind eye to the “blatant violation of human rights in Saudi Arabia” and maintain the “best economic, political and military ties” with Ryidh and other authoritarian regimes in the Arab world.................."

It is quite interesting that the Iranians are populating the (extreme) left of the political spectrum in North-American and Western-European countries. Here is another example:






Long Live The Toodeh Party of Iran

They may not exist officially but their offsprings carry the torch - of course a Pahlavi foundation grant followed by a  student confederation membership could have been helpful.
