Update on Ramin Jahanbegloo

It is still not clear what the reason for Ramin Jahanbegloo's detention is. It has been suggested that his article critiquing Mahmoud the Moonbat's stance on the Holocaust is to blame, but this is still speculation.

Here are some sources discussing the detention:
Human-rights groups are appealing to Iranian officials to demand the release of a prominent Iranian scholar, philosopher, and author who was detained in late April.
Ramin Jahanbegloo, the Iranian-Canadian scholar being held prisoner in Tehran, has not been hospitalized or tortured and is hopeful he will soon be free, according to a friend and colleague.
According to an AFP report, a hardline daily accused detained Iranian intellectual Ramin Jahanbegloo, a prominent thinker and writer on democracy and non-violence, of having links to US and Israeli intelligence services.
