[Life Goes on in Tehran] A personal monthly photoblog by a former Los Angeles resident who moved to Tehran.

[Pedestrian] Mohammad Motahari is the son of the late Ayatollah Motahari, a hardline (albeit it popular) Muslim cleric who was assassinated a year after the revolution (the day of his death is now celebrated as "Teacher's Day" in Iran). He is also the brother of Ali Motahari. As one commentator noted on Tabnak in response to this piece: "Een aziz, mesleh eenkeh Motaharitar az dadashesh daroomadeh" (This dear man seems to have more of "Motahari" in him than his brother).

This is one of the best articles I have seen from the clerical establishment on the current state of affairs (that does not mean that I agree with the views he puts forth!). Pedestrian's translation of the article

I'm sure many of you are like me and one of the first things you do in the morning is head here and check out the new post. Along with seeing the new posts, I'm also always checking out the blog roll rss feed and watching them grow, or shrink sometimes. In one of my past ...but all in all excellent site. Keep it up!
