Gives People Hope

I'm only now getting around to posting this piece written by Meghan Clyne in the October 7th edition of The New York Sun.

The piece discussed Pres Bush speech on Oct 6th, in which he condemned Syria and Iran for collaborating with terrorists, warning that the regimes "deserve no patience from the victims of terror."

My friend, Banafsheh is quoted:

A New York-based Iranian activist, Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi, said yesterday that the president's speech "gives people hope. The issues involved in bringing moderation and secularism to Iran, Ms. Zand-Bonazzi said, "must transcend the American anti-Bush clamor." "The masses in the Middle East seeking democracy and secularism find that this stance of the president, this language, and his constant hammering away at the issue is beyond helpful - it's completely correct," Ms. Zand-Bonazzi said.
