"Prime Minister Essam Sharaf’s speech given Saturday night failed to stasify protestors, even stirring greater anger. “Sharaf’s speech did not say anything new and shows that no demands will be met,” said Heba, an independent sit-in participant.
......
“His speech sounded like one of these tricks of the old government. He did not even give a timeline for his promise of suspending police officers accused [of killing protesters]. It is unacceptable that police officers accused of murder are still left on duty."

EA WorldView - Home - Iran Analysis: Supreme Leader's Son Turns Against Ahmadinejad? --- What We Really Know

EA WorldView - Home - Iran Analysis: Supreme Leader's Son Turns Against Ahmadinejad? --- What We Really Know | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
We note a sensational claim from Muhammad Sahimi at Tehran Bureau of a "crucial shift of sentiment by the Supreme Leader's son" --- Mojtaba Khamenei has supposed turned against President Ahmadinejad.

The problem with the claim, at least in this article, is the limited support for it. Sahimi's sole source for the assertion that the younger Khamenei "is now pressuring his father to allow the Majles to go forward with Ahmadinejad's impeachment" is an interview with former President Abolhassan Bani Sadr, exiled in Paris, who cites a source in Iran.

So what do we know?

Well, EA can add from its own sources in Iran that there are suspicions that Mojtaba has been in discussions with the camp of Tehran Mayor Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf, both in preparation for the 2012 Parliamentary elections and for Qalibaf's possible run for President in 2013.

Israeli Apartheid

Israeli Apartheid | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
In May, in a closed meeting of many of Israel’s business leaders, Idan Ofer, a holding-company magnate, warned, “We are quickly turning into South Africa. The economic blow of sanctions will be felt by every family in Israel.” The business leaders’ particular concern was the U.N. General Assembly session this September, where the Palestinian Authority is planning to call for recognition of a Palestinian state. Dan Gillerman, Israel’s former ambassador to the United Nations, warned participants that “the morning after the anticipated announcement of recognition of a Palestinian state, a painful and dramatic process of Southafricanization will begin”—meaning that Israel would become a pariah state, subject to international sanctions. In this and subsequent meetings, the oligarchs urged the government to initiate efforts modeled on the Saudi (Arab League) proposals and the unofficial Geneva Accord of 2003, in which high-level Palestinian and Israeli negotiators detailed a two-state settlement that was welcomed by most of the world, dismissed by Israel and ignored by Washington.

Iraq demands explanation for detention of Iraqi soccer player in Bahrain | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
Bahrain could be suspended if FIFA were to conclude that the government had intervened for political reasons in the Gulf island’s soccer. It could also jeopardize Bahrain’s participation in the next round of Asian Olympic qualifiers which begins in September.

A FIFA investigation could also affect the chances of Bahrain Football Association (BFA) president Sheikh Salman Bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, a member of the Bahraini royal family, to succeed disgraced Qatari national Mohamed Bin Hammam as head of the powerful Asian Football Confederation (AFC). Sheikh Salman is widely viewed as the frontrunner for the job.
