There's no other way than reform for Iran-Shirin Ebadi

Nobel laureate and human rights activist Shirin Ebadi tells Spiegel she sees "reform" as the only way out of the current deadlock for Iran and Iranians. It would have been great though if she had taken the trouble to say how under the current system in Iran "reforms" are possible at all.

By the way Ms. Ebadi, wouldn't you serve your country better if--as a human rights activist and not a politician-- instead of taking every single opportunity to knock the US president, check into the state of Iranian political prisoners such as Ramin Jahanbeglou or Mansour Osanlou?
