* Twins took risk and chose to be free
* More than life itself
My heart cries for these two wonderful women [Need
for a happy ending]. What a blessing their
years of life have been to those who loved them. What bravery and sense
purpose these two brilliant woman showed the world. I am sorry they could
not have had one day on earth separated from one another. May they share
special joy in the next world. God bless them and the doctors who so
bravely tried to give the women what they wanted more than life itself.

* Decision time
Open Letter to All Diplomatic Missions in Tehran
As you are aware, the “Mullahcracy” Regime in Iran is an
unelected government and rejected by the majority of the Iranian citizens.
In the name of Iran we are asking you to sever political and commercial
ties with this government. You choice to stand with or against the Iranian
people will determine our future government’s political and economic
relations with your respected governments.
The illegitimacy of the cleric
rule should be now obvious to diplomatic missions, as the people of
Iran are rising to bring about the very first revolution of the twenty-first
century. The regime does not represent the Iranian people as you witnessed
only less than twelve percent of eligible voters participated in elections
We condemn the continued reckless acts of Russian government in providing
nuclear capabilities to the tyrant regime for political and monetary
concessions. We applaud the refusal of the Japanese government to sign
the contract for oil explorations in the Azadegan oil fields.
The “Theocratic” Regime (Islamic Republic of Iran) is an
un-Islamic dictatorship that is not even Iranian. The “Mullaharchy” Regime
is alien to our nation, our culture and traditions. The I.R.I has the
worst human rights violation record and is the main source of support,
including money and arms to international terrorism.
We are seeking international solidarity to support the freedom movement
of our people and stop nuclear proliferation in Iran by means of economic
and political sanctions except for food and medicine. Your stance with
the people of Iran will ensure future long term friendship between
our two nations.

* Time to join Free World
It has been a while that I'm feeling blue about what's going on in this
world and specifically what is happening to our own beloved Motherland & consequently
to ourselves as a whole!
In my opinion we have reached an interesting level of Mental & Spiritual
maturity as Iranians inside & outside our Motherland during the past
twenty four years of being hostage to an amazing level of injustice by
the so called Islamic Republic of Iran.
The true proof
of that is an example of entities on the internet inside & outside
of Iran. We are getting closer & closer to our ultimate belief & goal
which is undoubtedly is Iran's Liberty which can subsequently lead to
more Peace, Justice & Security not only in Iran but the entire Mother
I think the time has come for us Iranians to join the so called
Free World! But, first we must set our differences aside & like other
successful nations. In these times of War, Injustice and Insecurity
we must decide & belive in the hounor of Unity. That is our only
way of salvation.
We have only ourselves to Praise or Blame This Time!
Freedom is on the way. It's inevitable & it is a Strange way of our

demonstrations that is or will be taken place in different states and
cities of United State on this site. This would help people who visit

in this mission to support our brave young brother and sister in Iran.
