PRESS PANORAMA

Tehran, July 16, IRNA -- The English language paper Iran Daily in its Press Panorama column to be published on Thursday has reviewed several Persian newspapers:

Ramadan and expectations from preachers

Jomhouri Eslami: Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, addressing a gathering of state administrators, urged preachers not to get on people’s nerves and avoid causing concerns.

Some preachers make statements that trigger disputes and provoke arguments. Such actions and reactions harm the society.

Unfortunately, some preachers assume the role of a judge and issue verdicts for cases that have not been tried in a court. Their incendiary remarks also create controversy in the media.

Legally, the judiciary and not individuals should investigate the charges concerned as soon as possible in the framework of law and without any abuse of power.

All should ask the judiciary to do the best about such cases and observe justice.





Iraq’s territorial integrity

Vatan Emrouz: Iraqi lawmakers have elected a Sunni politician Salim Jabouri as parliament speaker. The election showed that Iraqi democracy has overshadowed all threats, including those posed by ISIL’s sedition in northern provinces and separatism moves by Barzani’s clan in Kurdistan.

Only some Sunni parliamentarians abstained from Tuesday’s session, while a majority of Kurdish lawmakers were present. Close to 194 out of 273 parliamentarians voted for Jabouri.

Once again, the statements issued by Ayatollah Sistani and other sources of emulation for fighting the sedition and accelerating the formation of the new parliament foiled the enemies’ plots. Shias, including Sayyed Muqtada Sadr and Sayyed Amar al-Hakim, set aside their differences with Nouri Al-Maliki. They reached an agreement with their Sunni counterparts on choosing a qualified person like Jabouri.

Last week, Iraqi Shia, Sunni and Kurdish political leaders in a joint session reached an agreement that Iraq should remain undivided and protect its political and historical integrity.





Imbalanced cease-fire

Sharq: The plan proposed by Cairo to broker a cease-fire between Hamas resistance group and Zionist regime lacks comprehensiveness. Such plans are proposed when the Israeli regime faces obstacles in continuing its attacks or public dissatisfaction rises or the failure of its intelligence and security systems becomes obvious.

In such cases, it gives a signal to the US, which encourages certain regional nations such as Turkey and Egypt to give impartial proposals for truce. Although such proposals will stop military conflicts, they cannot guarantee the fulfillment of commitments by the Israeli regime.

If conditions laid by Hamas and Islamic Jihad are addressed, the temporary cease-fire will materialize. Some conditions include opening the Rafah border crossing and releasing Palestinian prisoners.

The condition of Hamas disarmament will not work because it is neither rational nor practical. Whenever Israel disarms, surely Hamas and Islamic Jihad will also follow.



Turning point in attracting foreign investment

Donya-ye-Eqtesad: A few days ago, Economy Minister Ali Tayyebnia appointed Mohammad Khazaei as his deputy and chairman of the Organization for Investment, Economic and Technical Assistance of Iran (OIETAI). This appointment could be a turning point in foreign trade and attracting foreign investment.

Khazaei has precise knowledge about international economic and political collaborations. He enjoys acceptability in domestic and global circles.

He should take lessons from the wrong approaches of the former government. The previous government pretended that sanctions did not have any effect. However, sanctions had negative consequences for the country’s economy. It affected foreign investment adversely and hurt the domestic economy.



Children deprived of childhood

Aftab-e Yazd: Child laborers are deprived of childhood. They don’t play, don’t go school and don’t receive care or kindness. Since they only work, they are known as child laborers.

Children as young as five years spend time in streets to earn a meager livelihood.

Passersby worry that child laborers may get hit by cars or could be harmed by bullies.

Why should such children face these hardships? Is rounding up these children and organizing them such a difficult job?
