On Monday December 29, 2008 at 5:30 in the afternoon the private law office of Shirin Ebadi, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Lawyer and human rights defenders was stormed by 5 security officers identifying themselves as tax officials, who presented a letter allowing them to take two computers and other documents. Shirin Ebadi has however refused to surrender her case files and computers to these officials citing that the confidential nature of the work of lawyers, especially human rights lawyers, and claiming that the act of surrendering client files to government officials would breach that confidentiality. These security officials are presently in Ms. Ebadi's private law office and engaged in search of the premises and seizure of property.

You bring up a very interesting point.

Iranians have been brainwashed to believe that Palestinians are an Iranian cause, when in fact neighboring Arab countries aren't even lifting a finger to help them.

who cry human rights violations in Gaza? Hello? Any body? Don't rush , one at a time, there is room for everyone to care here too!

More than 300 comments about Palestine/ Israel and NONE here. 

Does IRANIAN Shirin Ebadi and her clients have human rights too or only Palestinians and Hamas do?

Oh Come on! Either this game is getting old or I am getting old for it!
