SUBJECT: MEDIA REACTION: REPRESSION IN IRAN

Editorial in liberal Folha de S. Paulo (12-30) says: "The
international repudiation of the Iranian regime's repression,
censorship and intimidation has been growing [but] Brasilia remains
an exception......Brazil's Foreign Minister Celso Amorim forgot the
mess the Lula administration made in the Honduras' case and now
says one should not interfere in Iran's internal matters. It's up
to the Iranians to solve its internal conflicts. But evidently it
would be desirable that they did it in a peaceful way, without
using violence perpetrated by the State. If Itamaraty were not
dominated by a militant Manichaeism exhumed from the Cold War, it
would be simple to articulate this distinction."
