Shirin Ebadi's opposition to war

"American policy toward the Middle East, and Iran in particular, is often couched in the language of promoting human rights. No one would deny the importance of that goal. But for human rights defenders in Iran, the possibility of a foreign military attack on their country represents an utter disaster for their cause." Read Shirin Ebadi's article in NY Times, where she, along with Hadi Ghaemi, has opposed a military attack on Iran.
