The foundation of American ideals and democratic principles is freedom
of speech, thought and expression. Therefore, the Mia Farrow-like attack
on the editor of Iranian.com by a supporter of Persian Watch Cat appears
to me to be unjustified (I won't go so far as to say Un-American...).
The editor of Iranian.com has been caught in the middle of a cat fight
between members of Persian Watch Cat ["Persian
Watch Dog"]. Why don't you pussies leave the guy alone?
As a journalist and editor he has the right and obligation to present
points of view that may not be his own and which may offend some part of
his readership. Should he be personally attacked and threatened with legal
action as a result? You pussies should think about this. I don't think
When I first heard of the formation of an organization to protect Iranian-Americans
(and innocent Iranian visitors to this country) from un-American and prejudicial
treatment by my government, I was thrilled.
However, if the attack on the editor of Iranian.com by this supporter
of Persian Watch Cat is representative of the views and tactics of this
organization towards people they don't agree with, my advise is go back
to where you came from, we don't want you here. I'm sure that the American
Civil Liberties Union can fill any void caused by your absence.
