Topic - Evin Prison
Evin House of Detention ( Zendān Evin) is a prison in Iran, located in Evin, northwestern Tehran. It is noted for its political prisoners' wing, where prisoners have been held both before and after the 1979 Iranian Revolution. Due to the number of intellectuals that the prison housed, it was nicknamed "Evin University." - Source: Wikipedia
Hasan Rouhani, Iran's new president, made his debut on the world stage at the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, calling for "a framework for managing our differences." He didn't offer the olive branch President Obama wanted. If Tehran is genuinely interested in improving relations with the United States and the West, Mr. Rouhani and the ruling mullahs could prove it with a small gesture. He could free a Christian pastor who on Thursday marks his first anniversary as a political prisoner in Tehran's notoriously evil Evin Prison.
Most Americans look at Iran with a mixture of revulsion and fatalism. The regime is about as bad as repressive regimes get, just behind North Korea. Like North Korea, it is working hard to develop a militarily useful arsenal of nuclear weapons in defiance of the international community.
