Rights: Human vs. Nuclear

Since Iran and North Korea started their Nuclear plans, a new term has emerged as "nuclear rights". The authorities in Iran announced yesterday that they will not give up their "nuclear rights"!!!

It has been a couple of weeks since the infamous letter was sent to George W. Bush from President Ahmadinejad. Now, some prominent religious figures in Iran are calling that letter a divine message sent to the world through Mr. Ahmadinejad!!!

A Filipino boy in Montreal was punished for eating his lunch with a spoon last week. For days the story has been making headlines in the Philippines, and on Friday it sparked a protest outside the Canadian Embassy in Manila. The Philippines' ambassador to Canada has written a stern letter saying he considers the school board's action an affront to the Filipino culture. The boy's mother filed a complaint with the Quebec Human Rights Commission and reports suggest that the the relations between the two countries have been tormented due to this incident!!!

Dr. Ramin Jahanbegloo that was arrested more than 20 days ago in Iran, remains in jail, while the Canadian officials keep quiet. Groups around the world have condemned his arrest, but no action has been taken to defend Jahanbegloo's rights. Nowadays, the word "rights" reminds people of "Nuclear Rights" and it seems that human rights are limited to the right to "eat with a spoon" in Canada!!!

very good title. very deep concept. it seems people have to fight for their rights all the time, no matter where they are. But definitely more in some countries.
