* Speaking for silent majority
I have to say I delight in reading Iqbal
Latif's articles, illustrating as they do the existence of, I believe,
a sizeable number of conservatives blessed with the ability to reason
and come to the right conclusions, like myself, rather than hissing
hysterically about Bush the mass murderer.
The only problem is that most of these sound conservatives, the "good
people" as Cicero would have called them (friends of law and order,
personal freedom and security, civil society and property rights) are
a silent majority that rarely expresses itself with the eloquence of
our friend Iqbal Latif.
It is precisely that "impotant rage" that pushes the loosers
to blow everything up - from school buses to Twin Towers to American
soldiers - or all that is not anarchy, poverty and dreariness. But these
mobsters, like the communists and fascists of old, have their spineless
though insidious sympathisers in the West, those vacuous, immoral hypocrites
who live in London and Paris, not Baghdad, Basra or Damascus, who think
Bush is bad and Carter good, and who secretly despise the peoples of
foreign lands, thinking them undeserving of the liberal democracy they
themselves enjoy and denigrate. There is your orientalism. I've just
about had it with the Left.
* Smearing the image of all Muslims
I have always associated men who were bow-ties with being an oppressing
Republican, a chauvinist and the kind of Conservative that believe women
should be just housewives. That is why anytime I saw an article [Waiting
for Allah] by this Mr. Iqbal, I simply ignored it and even when
someone I love very much told me he had written a reply to one of this
man's articles I said, just ignore him.
Today I realized why that wonderful and peaceful person had been outraged
because I wanted to go and slap Mr. Iqbal's fat face as well. How dare
for you to say that Muslim communities rejoice at American miseries?
I cry every time I see a solder on TV and if I hear about casualties
I was against the war and predicated everything that is happening and
put it in writing when the election was going on. People in my office
wanted to vote Republican. I am not a magician but being from that region
of the world it was not difficult to see that the war would not result
But, as a human being and a mother I do not want to see anyone killed
on either side (except the ones who have tortured people).
I have this overwhelming suspicion that you like to kiss up to the
Americans and there are many like you and that is not out of your sincere
appreciation for freedom but your motivations are strictly material and
I am never wrong in my conclusions.
Calling Prince Abdullah a hardliner made me laugh so hard because there
is proof that you must be smoking something that makes your brain not
Do you even know that his mother is British? Do you know that he had
problems speaking Arabic properly? Do you know that he was just like
his daddy a womanizer and most of his time was spent in the sack with
the different spices of females while he was in England?
Mr. Iqbal I don't think you have to be a rocket scientist to know that
a little man like Prince Abdullah with a big ego was more interested
in his little sexual adventures than wasting his time on learning about
Also, don't you ever dare to assume that all Muslims are fatalist and
simply sit around and wait for Allah. I don't know what you do for a
living but look around you and marvel at the number of extremely successful
Iranians that are open-minded, compassionate and well educated and Allah
is there to provide spiritual guidance and none of these people are sitting
around and waiting for Allah.
Those of us who have been blessed with having reached the path of spirituality
and have experienced the hand of destiny know that we make the choices
in life but we ask the divine for his guidance and support. People like
you smear the image of all Muslims by stereotyping and generalizing.
I know many Muslims who are wonderful, compassionate, kind and not
corrupt. These people are very successful and make a difference in people's
lives and are not sitting and waiting for Allah and do not rejoice in
the misfortunes of the "infidels" as you call them.
Find something better to do. How about some exercise to get rid of
some of that excess fat that is clouding your judgment?
* Significant (!) Iranians?
Dear Iranian.com users and readers:
I thought the "Iranian
of the Day" section of the webpage was
supposed to be serious. Will people stop putting pictures of their 3-year
olds all the time?
Maybe Iranian.com can set up a "ghorboon-saleegheh" part
of the website, and keep actually significant (!) Iranians on the "Iranian
of the day" section, so that all the moms and dads out there can
stop wasting our dear time.
Honestly, to all the readers out there, how many more pictures of children
do you want to see as "Iranian of the day," "Iranian of
every day," "smooch smooch smooch my 2-year old son Cyrus or
Darius or ... (insert king's name here)?"
* Alliance with avowed enemies?
truly a piece of garbage written by a piece of garbage [Real
axis of evil]. it is really
is NO SURPRISE AT ALL that, after 25 years, our country is barely a third
world country, that after all this time iranians have yet to speak with
a united, coherent opposition voice. not with dickheads like this in
our midst. according to this dickhead, in order for our country to be
liberated, we iranians should genuflect ourselves before jews and israelis
and profess our devotion to the state of israel.
we should form a strategic
relationship with a country boasting one of the most atrocious human
rights records in the world and hop into bed with its supporters? people
who's unrelenting hostility towards iran, iranians, and everyone else
who's a muslim (or not pro-israeli) has shaped america's foreign policy
throughout the middle east?
MOREOVER, we should throw our weight behind
a so-called self-professed leader (reza pahlavi) who's not only been
getting it up the ass from the israelites and neo-cons for some time
now, but who also has gone so far as to meet israeli leaders--the same
israeli leaders who've repeatedly threatened to bomb iran whenever
they damn well feel like it?
this dickhead is either a jew himself (although i doubt it) or is just
someone willing to do ANYTHING just to liberate our country, even if
it means forming an alliance with the avowed enemies of iran?
like a familiar story: maryam rajavi and her ilk did the same thing with
saddam. the only difference is that rajavi wears a roosari, whereas pahlavi
more presentable with the nice suits he buys with stolen iranian money. but
we need not worry about pahlavi-he'll get his in due time. one last
while attempting to posit turkey (of all countries) as
a beacon of human rights and democracy in the muslim world, the author
states, "Though at times under threat from Kurdish separatists and
Armenian terrorists...bla bla bla". get yer facts straight, dickhead.
it's the other way around. the kurds have always been under threat from
turkey as turkey has systematically attempted to destroy their culture
and language. and armenian terrorists?? two words for you dickhead: armenian
happy to report to you my last article "What
are you going to be Thankful" was also published in the Boston
Metro Newspaper which is one of the largest papers in Boston. This was
on Wednesday 11/26/03. To preview it you must download Adobe reader,
and it can be seen on metropoint.com. Keep
up the good work.
* Idiots running my country
The attached photo is the front
page of Kayhan newspaper, dated Saturday November 29, 2003. This
newspaper is printed in Tehran and is the mouthpiece of the Islamic Republic
of Iran under supervision of the famous Evin Prison
torturer Houssein Shariatmadari.
The headline in Farsi reads "the turkey has landed in Baghdad in
a burglar fashion". Under the headlines are the pictures of President
Bush next to pictures of picketers in front of an Albertsons supermarket
in California. The picketers are shown as Anti-Bush demonstrators.
I encourage you to publicize this blunder, so that the people of the
world would know what kind of idiots are running my country.
Ramin Etebar, M.D.
* Shame on Britain!
I knew from the first day that Britain would not extradite
Soleimanpour, the ex-Iranian diplomat accused of being involved
in the bombing of the Jewish Center, to Argentina. It was a plot to derail
the investigation and Britain did it.
It is impossible to believe that
Britain, as the staunchest supporter of the Islamic fundamentalism
and the main architect of the Islamic Republic on one side and the worst
enemy of Iranians on the other side, had any intention to extradite Soleimanpour.
Britain releases Soleimanpuor despite having confessions of an Iranian
agent and the direct role of this man and other mullahs in killing
of innocent people. Shame on Britain!
* Depicting Iranians as
I agree with Naghmeh Sohrabi and some of his views
of Iranian cinema. [Who
you talkin' to?] For some Iranian audiences who
like Iranian films, they like them for the wrong
reason. Not because it depicts their culture but it
makes Americans and people from the West look at them
not as terrorists but as skilled humans.
What I don't agree with is that the West is
patronizing Iranian cinmea. I have never seen nor
heard of any Iranian film. I really don't think in my
lifetime that I will ever hear of one. I think that
people in the West are more concerned with films by
big-time directors that spend millions on a movie. It
is a shame though that Iranian cinema does not get
shown as much as it should for it depicts Iranians as
humans and depicts real life situations about them.
* No one is clearly Iranian
Dear Shiwan, [Zartosht
Yet again I approach a misguided, brainwashed, uneducated
Kurd. Regardless whether they are a Kurd in Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Syria,
Armenia, or Lebanon,
from what Shiwan has written, he has been clearly been misguided by
Western supported ignorant Kurdish Nationalistic movements.
Let me tell you something.
I am an Iranian. Now what does this mean. Iranian means "Land of
the Aryans", a civilization present for 20,000 years, being the
oldest in the world. Being Iranian doesn't mean living in the political
boundaries set by the Russians, British and the French.
means behaving in the cultural manner which has taken thousands of
years to establish. People of the Pars, Kurd, Lur, Azeri, Gilaki, Oskini,
Baluchi, Yazdi, Kermani, Tajik and countless other peoples comprimise
our proud and beloved nation.
No one is clearly Iranian, they are of
a people which makes up Iran. Iran without Kurds isn't Iran and Kurdistan
without Iran isn't Kurdistan. As a Kurd (my name neing Heresh) and
an Azeri, I dismiss all Kurdish Nationalists. Why? Because I am proud
aware of what makes me Iranian.
I continue to read my history, speak
Persian, Kurdish fluently, and understand Azeri. I have not been brainwashed
by Barzani or other fat bellied rif-raf who are supported by the MI6
So, Mr Shiwan, le jayeh ke tee era o be ema IRANIKAN eyjhee
Zartosh Kurd bo o Irani naboo, bechoo taareekh Iran bekhwaneh (instead
of coming and telling us IRANIANS that Zartosht was a Kurd and not
Iranian go and read the history of Iran).
urthermore "Iranian" as
you called it is not an Arabic language, it is an Aryan language, and
if you are referring to Arabic influences in Persian, can I remind you
of Iraqi Kurds who have many of their nouns in Arabic, e.g. Sayareh for
Long Live Iran
Long Live Aryanism
