Iranian presidential candidates get personal . Jason Rezaian. TEHRAN – In their third and final televised debate Friday, Iran’s eight presidential candidates traded pointed accusations, including blaming one of their number for his role in responding to anti-government protests and criticizing another for the lack of progress in talks on the country’s nuclear program. Political differences quickly turned personal, with several candidates bringing up episodes from their rivals’ careers that many might have preferred to keep in the shadows, offering a rare glimpse into the often bitter disputes that roil the top echelons of the Islamic republic’s political system. But after two lackluster debates that viewers and participants alike criticized for their lack of substance and competitiveness, Friday’s clashes may provide some of the spark that Iranian authorities have been seeking to energize what has been a low-energy campaign, generating little public interest. Former foreign minister Ali Ak ...
Tehran mayor rises in presidential race . Jason Rezaian. An earlier version of this story incorrectly said that Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, 51, is the youngest candidate running for president of Iran. Saeed Jalili, who is 47, is the youngest. TEHRAN – In Iran’s first presidential debate of 2013 last week, candidate and Tehran Mayor Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf looked poised and prepared. While the other seven candidates were visibly flustered by the format, Ghalibaf regularly consulted a tablet that appeared to be an Apple iPad and spoke with certainty to the cameras. The first thing that my government will do is to stabilize the currency. The second is to change the method of distribution of services and goods,” Ghalibaf said, referring to some of the most pressing problems of Iran’s battered economy. Today we need the trust of our people. My government will achieve this in six months. If polls are any guide – and in Iran, they are far from reliable – Ghalibaf might have reason to exude confiden .. ...
Iran outraged over Oscar win for Argo, "which is produced by the Zionist company Warner Bros." What would Oscar night without a paranoid anti-Semitic conspiracy theory from the Islamic Republic? "Iranian media criticize Oscar win for ‘Argo,’" by Jason Rezaian for the Washington Post, February 25 (thanks to Jerk Chicken): TEHRAN — For the second consecutive year many Iranians had good reason to stay up late into the night to watch the Academy Awards ceremony. Ben Affleck’s “Argo,” which recounts the successful rescue mission of several American diplomats during the 1979 hostage crisis in Tehran, won best picture Sunday night, and Iranian media was quick to react on Monday. The Post’s Ann Hornaday discusses Ben Affleck’s Oscar-nominated film “Argo.” She weighs in on the film’s chances for best picture and Affleck being passed over for a best director nomination. The elation that followed Iran’s first Oscar victory for the film “A Separation,” which won best foreign film last year ...
