The Agents of Outrage (commentary)
by Esfand Aashena
14-Sep-2012
 

Yesterday I was watching CNN and there was an interview with an individual by the name of Bobby Ghosh who had written an article for the next issue of Time magazine entitled The Agents of Outrage:  Behind the Middle East's Anti-American Violence.

Something he said resonated with me.  He said there are anti-Islam material made every hour of every day on the internet.  If there were to be riots for every one of them there should be riots on an hourly basis all over the Muslim world.  Then it dawned on me here on i.com, where it's motto is Nothing is Sacred and this slogan has been used to level insults on Islam, we witness wall to wall insults on Islam 24/7!  Just look around and you see the back and forth between few who are either insulting Islam or those who engage them!

Then they showed an interview with a Copt Christian in Cairo.  What's Copt Christian, have you heard about them?  Anyway, he said something that AGAIN it resonated with me.  In his interview he refered to "Muslims who have invaded Egypt"!  Now how many times do we hear the same thing about Iran on this website?!  2 for 2!

So I turn to those who insult Islam routinely on this website and refer to Muslims (directly or indirectly) as savages and Muhammad as a pedophile and so on, dirt on your heads!  NONE of your insults on this website has ever been able to incite anything in Iran!  ALL of the protests in Iran have been because of insults of non-Iranians!

Joking aside, this article sheds light on how these things are started and the global industry of hate from all sides come together to piece together a video who was forgotten to bring it to the attention of a TV personality to incite a reaction that turns violent and use that to recruit more separation and hatred towards one another.  I recommend this article which is short and to the point.

How many of us have actually lived in a society where your religion is your death sentence?  I mean literally and on a large scale.  When we were growing up we knew about Shiites and Sunnis but we never saw any violence against them.  I know now that in Iraq there were atrocities by Saddam against Shiites during his rein, which escalated after the first Gulf war.  But to the extent that it did after the second Gulf war and now as we speak?  Or in African nations such as Rwanda or Sudan.   There is no point in this other than to start a war or genocide using religion.

تنها فرقی که میتونه بین بسیجیهای بیشرف وجود داشته باشه

داشتن و نداشتن ساندیسه!

شنیدیم که صادرات ساندیس ولایت وقیهی بعد از این ماجرا اخیر بطور چشم گیری در کانادا کاهش پیدا کرده و بعلت اعتیاد بسیجیان به ساندیس، این مسئله ناچیز برای این افراد بسیار مشکل ساز شده است. گفته میشود که همانند ال.اس.دی مصرف زیاد ساندیس اعتياد جسمانی ندارد ولی دارای اثرات مغزی و روانی زيانبخشی است، که باعث توهم و اعتياد روانیست.

طوری خواهد شد که بدون ساندیس ناب خر علی، بسیجیان ساکن کانادا، به بسیجیان قم که در رفاه کامل ساندیس هستند غبطه خواهند برد.

اگر به خاطر دلاوری و شجاعت سربازان، ملوانان و خلبانان ارتش مسلح ایران نبود، این مزدور ولی‌ فقیه با ده دوازده اسم قلابیش الان اینجا مدح صدام حسین را میخاند و پز میداد برای اون ساعت قلابی که پسر صدام حسین جلوش انداخت برای "خدماتش"!!!.

Ever since they closed the embassy in Ottawa, you seem to have more time on your hand! 

By the way, Basijis are only good at climbing defense-less embassy walls and beating middle-aged women. As we say in Farsi, "hanooz jai-e-seft nashaashidan!"

بسیج هم بسیجی‌‌های قدیم

Esfand Aashena


بسیج هم بسیجی‌‌های قدیم که از هجوم دشمنان عراقی‌ به ایران دفاع میکردند. نه بسیجی‌‌های امروز که با مشت و لگد و باتوم و موتور افتندند به جون شهر وندان ایرانی‌ و از زدن زنان هم نمی‌گذرند.  آخرش هم مردم با مشت و لگد جوابشان را دادند.  از یاد مردم نمی‌ره.

 قدیما اگر بعد از مست کردن در کافه دعوا بزن بزن میشد، رو در رو و مردانه بود. در کافه اینترنیتی بزدلان ابتر شده خود را بسیجی صدا میکنند و پشت کی بورد قایم میشوند!!
هر کی بسیجی (از هر نوع آن )است جایش ایران است و کارش جنگ(هر جبهه​ای که اعتقاد داری) رو در رو!!

Looks like we're very good at insulting one another and following the same path as those highlighted in this blog.  Except as I mentioned no smoke ever rises out of this website and the so called "discussions" or "insults".

The only good thing "Frashogar" is good at fighting

by Onlyiran on

is his multiple personalities, his keyboard, imaginary online "Zionists," and the truth!  I wonder what the followers of his religion, the "Fatimiyeh" religion think about their leader being such a lying coward.

And it will be Business class on me. The offer stands whenever you feel ready to stand up for your values. Otherwise talk and insults are cheap.

When the enhanced Hezbollah rockets begin ramming into the Baha'i Gardens on Mt Carmel and laying it to waste, without a single Patriot missle being able to intercept them, get back to me with your offer. That day may not be too far ahead of us, methinks.

And, oh, I only fly First Class :)

I'll pay for your ticket, Paypal is ready. BTW, a real honour to be compared to Reality Bites. One of the best contributors on this site, thank you. 


Frashogar

But...

by Frashogar on

Your IDF tag number and Shin Bet serial ID has to be verifiable, otherwise no deal.

I see Truthseeker9 aka Reality-Bites has come into the fray now. LOL! 

You people are a joke and so preditable. See ya!

I'm sure there are many others who would like to see these hypocrite cowards put their money where their mouths are.  But I doubt that we will ever see the say.  Because, they are, after all, cowards.  


Frashogar

Give me your

by Frashogar on

IDF tag number and full Shin Bet serial ID, and then I'll give you an answer. Deal?


Truthseeker9

OI

by Truthseeker9 on

We'll all find people to chip in towards that ticket out. 


Onlyiran

Are you going or not?

by Onlyiran on

What?  Don't even have the courage to answer that question, let alone go there and fight for a cause that you pretend to care about?

We all knew you were a liar, a coward and a phony!  Now you just proved it yourself.  


Frashogar

You would know, wouldn't you...

by Frashogar on

All about 12-year old Palestinians.

 


Onlyiran

So, are you going or not?

by Onlyiran on

What, scared of Jews?   Don't have the cahoonas?  Just a big mouth and a keyboard? 12 year old Palestinians have more courage than you. :-)


Frashogar

You Settler Zionists know best...

by Frashogar on

About Jewish tricks, that is...


Onlyiran

Yes, I forgot that there's a Jewish trick there somewhere

by Onlyiran on

Everything is a conspiracy.  Do you wear an aluminium foil hat on your head by any chance? :-)

I also have another suggestion for you, which I have made to other like minded armchair "Zionist fighters" on Iranian.com:

Instead of creating imaginary Zionists on IC (who happen to be anyone who doesn't agree with your paranoid delusions), and then having an imaginary fight with them, why don't you move your lazy behind from your multiple keyboards that you use to post comments under various user-id's and go to South Lebanon or Gaza and fight real Zionists?  Your one way ticket is on me.  Put your money where your mouth is. Pick a destination.  Gaza or South Labanon.  There are only two conditions:

A.  You actually go there,

B. You post a video of yourself in a firefight with Israeli soldiers.  

Let's see if you have the courage to do so.  Once you actually go there and post your video on IC, you can include an account number where the cost of your ticket can be wired, along with $500.00 in spending money on top of it.  Deal? 


Frashogar

Actually...

by Frashogar on

It is the Coptic Christian story which has been proven a lie. Google it. You'll see. All of the links you provided are from corporate media owned and operated by Jews. Of course they'll deflect and spin a story which clearly implicates them as the authors and financiers of this film.

Put that in your Israeli-settler pipe and smoke it, crazy Zionist :)
