SAD BUT TRUE !
have driven the whole technology sector in Iran," said Massoud Bozorgi, CEO of Chavoosh IT Development Co.
, the largest Internet service provider in Esfahan [one of the major cities of Iran]. "That's why most people buy computers. It's sad, but true."
: " Jaffar Savalanpour Ardabili, 38, a midranking Iranian Shiite cleric whose web site
, is so flooded that it closes several days a month to limit submissions,is doing a unique job in a country where, after the 1979 Islamic revolution, dating was banned and extramarital relationships became subject to severe punishment.He arranges marriages. His office is filled from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday through Thursday with hopeful iranian men and women,all seeking his help to get married.
"I just want to be a true cleric, and as a cleric my job is to help bring balance and happiness to people's lives," he said.
Ardabili's own relatively free spirit was influenced by a six-month stay in Canada in 2000.
"I noticed that people were so happy there," he said. "They went out to dance and party over the weekend. So I thought as a cleric, I should use religion to bring happiness to people's lives in my own country."
When he returned, he started his business online. He asked applicants for a short biography and answers to a series of questions about their expectations.He lines up several candidates for each applicant and they date, sometimes for months -- a departure from traditional marriages, in which the wedding might take place within weeks of the bride and groom's first meeting.
He charges about $7 to process each application, but his income is supplemented by donations that happy couples often make after they marry.
Ardabili stays in touch with the couples he has matched. He tries to make sure they do well in many facets of their marriage -- he even sends some of them to sex therapy clinics. "

POWELL'S REMARKS ABOUT IRAN
The Iranian people want their freedom back, of this there can be no doubt. They do not want to banish Islam from their lives. Far from it. They want to be free of those who have dragged the sacred garments of Islam into the political gutter.
They have been imprisoned for wanting this. They have been gagged for wanting this. They have been intimidated and threatened for wanting this. Some have already died for wanting this. And yet when Shirin Ebadi returned home to Iran just a week or so ago, this year's Nobel Peace Prize in her hands, tens of thousands of Iranians came out to greet her.
We all know what this means. The hidebound clerics of Iran know what it means, too. Should they be worried? Does morning follow night? They should be.

: Two National Guard soldiers who married Iraqi women against their commander's wishes will have to wait at least eight months to return home with their brides, according to a lawyer for one of the soldiers.
Sergeant Christopher Sean Blackwell
and Captain Brett Harrison Dagen
, were Christians who converted to Islam
so they could be married under Iraqi law.Wearing army fatigues and carrying M-16 rifles, they held a double secret ceremony on August 16 after converting to Islam
, reportedly because superior officers had disapproved of their decision.
According to their marriage certificates seen by AFP, Joanne
, 26, and her best friend Ahda
, 25, tied the knot with Blackwell, 27, and Dagen, 37,respectively.
In line with Islamic law, the certificates show a payment of 1,000 dollars by the grooms and a compensation pledge for the brides of 10,000 dollars in case of divorce.They also bear color pictures of the newly weds.
Joanne and Ahda, who were working as interpreters for the US forces in a Baghdad hotel where they met their husbands, risk abduction and murder as "collaborators" with the US-led coalition occupying conservative Muslim Iraq .
The two women now live in virtual hiding, unable even to meet with their new husbands, who are also under the threat of sanctions from the army.The men have been restricted to their bases since the double wedding in August, and they have not been allowed to see or speak to their wives since then, the soldiers' mothers said Monday.
