I love this song. I translated it from Persian to English, so you can understand it while listening to it (the ones do not know Persian).

Confessions of a Secret Agent

There are two secrets whose sanctity I always honor

22-Dec-2007 (133 comments)

When I first began "blogging" here (or more accurately, "threading") about two months ago, I had to defend my right to speak, because I was not an Iranian. It was hard, and sometimes painful, to hold my ground. But I knew I had finally arrived when I began to be accused of being a secret agent of various governments and organizations. I was “in”, I was accepted, I was one of the family. I met this victory with an odd mixture of satisfaction, frustration, and occasional despair. Recently these accusations have been popping up left and right, and I mean literally left and right, because I am now apparently both a Hezbolaahi and a Zionist agent

Get it together

The problem of the opposition is its incoherence

22-Dec-2007 (8 comments)
There is no serious opposition for the Iranian regime. But at the same time it is also practically difficult to organise open and transparent opposition for the regime, or the leadership or even the sort-of-elected government while Iranian semi-democracy does not tolerate opposition. Any person or group openly acknowledging to oppose the regime or the system would risk serious threats to their lives, liberties and reputations (through cooked-up allegations in the media), for themselves and even their families. However there is some sort of an empowerment of the people in Iran. Iranians can choose between one Islamist and another>>>

Let's rejoice friends; it is Night of Birth

Rebirth of the Sun, to the face of Earth.

Long domain of night, has again been torn.
