I breathed a great sigh of relief when I saw this morning's headlines. No, it wasn't because LeBron James is going to the Miami Heat, or because the Israeli police busted two Haredis with ten kilos of blow at Ben Gurion. It wasn't even because the Cold War is back on with this Russian spy ring in the US. I exhaled with satisfaction because progress is finally being made in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The bastion of fundamentalist Islam and the rule of shari'a law is being chipped away by international pressure.
