Iran: sanctions July 1st 2012

A group of academics, including the spokesperson for the Coordination Council of the Green Path of Hope issued a statement in which they “categorically” condemn recent remarks made by Iran’s First Vice-President.
Last Tuesday, during a speech at an anti-drug conference in Tehran, he blamed the Talmud for the expansion of illegal drugs around the world, saying the "Zionists" were responsible for the world's major drug trade.
The undersigners say among other things that the “overwhelming majority” of Iranians had “made it clear that they do not recognize the present government of Iran and its functionaries as their representatives on the international arena.”
The undersigners are

Nader Hashemi, Assistant Professor, University of Denver
