  Worker-communist Party of Iran - The Obvious Lessons of Berlin, on Iran after the 'Elections' by Mansoor Hekmat
The sham Berlin conference trials and long-term prison and exile verdicts imposed on some of the most lenient critics of the Islamic Republic of Iran have, more than anything else, politically vindicated those opponents of the Islamic Regime who disrupted German-2nd Khordad plans to promote Islam and the Islamic state.
At the Berlin conference, the 2nd Khordad aimed to present an image of a different Iran and a different Islamic Republic, to be backed by the West vis-à-vis its opponents.
On the contrary, the Berlin conference was transformed into a scene of immense opposition against the entirety of the Islamic regime, the German government and the reactionary pro-government 'opposition.' Survivors of the slaughtered generation, progressives and primarily Communists shut the farce down.

This week, in advance of the Berlin gathering, intensive negotiations took place at the OSCE headquarters in Vienna, in order to secure a compromise between the Bush administration and Jewish groups on the one hand and the Europeans on the other over whether the definition of antisemitism should include an explicit reference to Israel.
In the end, representatives at next week’s conference are expected to assign the OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights the task of collecting data on antisemitic incidents in member countries, diplomats and observers said.

 The Congress of Berlin
The Congress of Berlin was not the start of the "Scramble for Africa," but it laid down the rules that governed the European conquest of Africa for the next fifteen years.
The Congress produced the Berlin Act of 1885 which established the "conventional basin of the Congo" (bigger than the geographical basin) and opened it to European free trade, made it neutral in times of war and promoted efforts to end the slave trade.
The most important consequence of the Berlin Act was the reduction of tensions that had resulted from the French explorations in the Congo basin (Savorgnan de Brazza, 1876-1877), the establishment of Belgian posts in the Congo (1879-1884), the French invasion of Tunisia (1881), and the British takeover of Egypt (1882).
