Mona Zarei – Bone Marrow Donor Needed – Urgent


My name is Mona Zarei, and I am writing to you from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida.

I am a 26-year-old graduate of Sharif University in Tehran, currently a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at the Florida International University. Unfortunately, after only four months living in America, in November 2007, I was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder, which has gradually led to bone marrow failure.

Within the last two months, I have been repeatedly hospitalized in the intensive care unit (ICU). As my medical team has concluded, my only option for survival is a bone marrow transplant. I have tried several bone marrow banks, but have not been successful in finding a match.

Scientifically, the possibility of finding a match among Iranians is higher than those of other nationalities. It is for this reason that I am reaching out to you for help in saving my life.

Safeguarding the Cyrus the Great Cylinder


The hostility of the clerical regime of Iran toward anything and everything Persian that predates Islam is a well-documented fact. The priceless cylinder of Cyrus the Great belongs to Iran. Entrusting it into the hands of the sworn enemies of Persian heritage entails an unacceptably high risk.

It is imperative that British authorities rescind their decision to lend the cylinder for exhibit to an Iranian museum at this time. Instead, they should take every measure to insure that the Cyrus Cylinder is preserved safely and returned to its rightful owner Iran, but only after the demise of the Islamic Republic.
