You godda be kidding -- Cross-post, sorry, but I'll keep it .

Look Faramarz, I don't care about your stupid joke in your stupid blog. The only reason I even WENT on here at all was because of your other stupid blog in March:  My marriage has been saved! I am never writing here again because my wife of 30 years who's my whole world told me she'll leave me if I don't stop Islam-bashing! Praise be the lord good-bye forever I have seen the light!


So after you slobber all over us, we slobber all over you bending over backwards to wish you well and then you come back and say weeeeell...as long as I don't talk about Islam toooooo much, it's kinda sorta okaaaay...and then next thing you know it's...blogs on an "Islam-free Iran" and someone says 'fire hydrant' and you say 'Down with Islam!' and someone says 'banana fudge sundae' and you say 'Islam-free Iran!"

And now you're grabbing onto someone you know is new and doesn't know your history here and is so cute and hasn't said anything that could possibly be construed as objectionable? And that's supposed to make you look cute and harmless? And lumping me into a clump with other people? I don't give much of a damn about the joke. Like I said, it's the joke and your other recent posts IN THE CONTEXT OF your True Confessions story.

Sorry Faramarz. You poured that slop of molasses about your wife onto this community, not us. I'm not Q. Q would never have defended your 'good hate' blog in a million years. About 'de-programming Muslims' for their and Iran's own good. And Jahanshah  said you're the one who's full of hate, and I  said, I see a particular ideology that's wrong but I don't see the hate. No, I'm not Q. And then you write about your friend the doctor and how you wish you could be a better person and more humanitarian like him? And I tell you you are? ??? And now you act like I'm Ayhab and Q's test tube child?

Forget it, Faramarz. Hiding behind the tweety bird won't make your public betrayals and manipulations of your wife and the website community go away. You lost this one. Big time. Ayhab's right. Your foot's in your mouth. And it's about to reach your esophagus.

Bon appetit.


Roxi, I really appreciate your concern

by Faramarz_Fateh on

for my wife and marriage.  That is very nice of you.

I'll be sure to convey your concern to her.  She is in China again as a matter of fact.  Will return Feb 9, 2010.

So are you, Q and Capt_a coming today?  Should we wait for you or start lunch without you?  Let me know please. 


Tweet, times are tough buddy

by Faramarz_Fateh on

If this was 2005, I'd invite you to Darya.  But times are tough buddy.

If it was only Q, Roxi, Capt_a I'd take them to Darya for a debsh Soltani.  But for a large crowd, I gotta go buffet.

You can order ice cream and faloodeh...how is that? 

Little Tweet


by Little Tweet on

if I am coming all the way to Bristol, nothing short of Darya would do, buffet arzoonieh khodet! cheh khassis!

Seems like you placed your all mighty foot in your mightier mouth again.

Every single religion has a period of fasting, so lets look at your ignorance in alphabetical order:

Baha'i faith 19 day fast March 2-March 20

Buddhist monks and nuns following the Vinaya rules commonly do not eat each day after the noon meal.

Christianity: The "acceptable fast" is discussed in the biblical Book of Isaiah,
chapter 58:3-7. In essence, it means afflict the soul through abstaining from fulfilling the needs or wants of the flesh. The opening
chapter of the Book of Daniel, vv. 8-16, describes a partial fast and its effects on the health of its observers.

Anglicanism: The Book of Common Prayer prescribes certain days as days for fasting and abstinence.

Eastern Orthodox and Greek-Catholic Christians, fasting is an important spiritual discipline.

There are four fasting seasons, which include:

Great Lent (40 days), Holy Week (7 days),
Nativity Fast (40 days),Apostles' Fast (variable length), and, Dormition Fast (2 weeks)

Hinduism: Fasting is a very integral part of the Hindu religion. Individuals observe different kinds of fasts based on personal beliefs and local customs.

Islam: Fasting is the fourth of the Five Pillars of Islam and involves fasting during Ramadan.

Jainism: One is called Chauvihar Upwas, in which no food or water may be consumed until sunrise the next day. Another is called Tivihar Upwas, in which no food may be consumed, but boiled water is allowed.

Judaism: Fasting for Jews means completely abstaining from food and drink, including water. Brushing teeth is forbidden on the major fast days of
Yom Kippur and Tisha B'Av (See below), but permitted on minor fast days.

You say "...Islamists will become as feckless as the KKK in the USA ...."

Ironically ,reading your words is like reading the words of "national front " in UK , or the KKK in USA.

You think and write like a fascist.

Our golden days of literature , art , science , architecture , etc...all happened  during the Islamic khalifet in Iran.

A secular government and democracy is what Iran and Iranians deserve , and hopefully will get soon.

There is a lot of this arab bashing , Islam bashing on this site by guys like yourself .

I undestand and agree with the dislike of this regime , however , Racism/Fascism does not have any place in our culture.

You're by your own a stupid joke, It's not worth to add!

rosie is roxy is roshan

ps Clarification, I don't have a problem with the blog per se

by rosie is roxy is roshan on

especially within this freedom of speech forum. Also the joke is funny. I have a problem with the back story, the featurng, and someone getting attacked for objecting to the featuring, whether I object to it or not. That's all I have a problem with. 

rosie is roxy is roshan

Oh, please, Mr.

by rosie is roxy is roshan on

thanks for paying such close attention to my post (really) and for the details you pointed out, like my misuse of the word racism, Acutally I did not intend to equate--what would you like me to call it, cultural chauvinsim? Religionism? with racism--but merely draw a parallel between these two cousins.- The parallel is black and white, self/other, us/them world view, which can become fanatical, monomoniacal, when full blown. And you and I could go on and on all day debating my semantics and whatever overtones or hidden assumptins, conscious or unconsicious, right or wrong, they contain. And if you want to, fine. But not yet.

WHY? Because this blog is written by Faramarz. And there are only four possibilities here about this blog and others he's been writing again recently on this topic:

1) Faramarz's wife has finally left him since he wrote his blog about renouncing Islam-bashing  for her in March because HE JUST CAN'T STOP; or.

2) Faramarz is still doing this behind her back after we know about this promise which is a public humiliation of both himself and her which he cna't even see because HE JUST CAN'T STOP.

3) Farmarz's wife knows about this blog and other recent ones and still hasn't left him because despite how much this behavior of his wounds and disgusts every ethical and emotional fiber in her being she knows HE JUST CAN'T STOP; or

4) Faramarz's wife now approves of Islam-bashing.

So first you prove to me, "Mr.", that Faramarz does not have a bona fide psychological illness with this Islam-bashing, which causes him to inflict destruction on his and someone else's entire life. Let's start with 'illness' before we move on to my other terminology.

And if you CAN'T refute that this is an illness, well, your worldview is very similar to his, so what does that say about yours?

Oh and please do not condescend to me intellectually. Because if you do you will make a fool of yourself.

ps I didn't say q doesn't have some black and white thinkng, either. Black and white thinking can be about ANYTHING, it doesn't have to be about cultural chauvinism or whatever. But let's leave  q out of this for now, okay, and start with you and Faramarz. This is an ongoing discussion between q and me anyway, we don't need your help right now, thanks in advance for offering.

You misunderstood my point -- the "choice" that I'm talking about is for the typical ignorant Iranian who thinks he's "Iranian" or "Persian," and yet, celebrates the roots of Islam with more passion than his or her Iranian heritage.

The generic Islamists that we all know and hate does not deserve a choice whatsoever -- they can only choose their form of death. But they're not the real source of cultural decay per se -- our real problem is the passive ignorant masses who to this day pay homage to Arab heros who raped us out of our true identity.

The Iranian people must make the choice between Life (Iranian culture) and Death (Islam). You can't have both. In the future, I'm certain that most will reject the culture of death, i.e., Islam. Those who embrace it should be met with vigilance, if not force. 

Case in point, Haji Q, who thinks he's practicing Iranian culture, even though he probably worships Imam Hussein far more than Dariush or Kurosh. He probably does Namaz five times a day and doesn't even know what the hell he's saying in Arabic (or perhaps he does, which is even worse). He's a tootee, an ignorant Islamist, who supports the IRI with every fiber in his being. He doesn't deserve a choice.

The masses, however, can exercise choice and take back their identity! It all starts with the individual -- and one way is to start taking back our identity is by naming our children Iranian names. Once we take back our identity, Islamists will become as feckless as the KKK in the USA, a fringe element with no real power.

But it all starts with the taking back of what's left of our Iranian identity. Throw away the Arabic names! Trash the Islamic holidays! And toss the Arab Heroes into the trash bin of history!

Tell yourself that you REJECT the identity of our rapists (muslim Arab invaders) to the eternal benefit of our original Iranian identity. Force yourself to say "Dorood" and not "Salaam." Stop verbalizing crap like "mashala" or "Inshala" -- I cringe everytime I hear these words.

A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step, and purification of our language, names and culture is that journey which starts with each individual, one small step at a time.

Make the choice to be Iranian, live as an Iranian, and die as an Iranian! Long live the memory of Cyrus the Great!



by LanceRaheem on

Who is calling who ignorant?  You really need to learn to spell, dude!  The word is spelled...R-I-D-I-C-U-L-E-S, not redicules.  People who live in glass houses ought not throw stones at others!

Oh Please Ms.

by Kaveh V on


....But more worrisome is the psychological pathology behind it. HE SIMPLY
CANNOT STOP.It just proves that racism is a real illness and it is not
Islam that has been the problem in Iran, but monomaniacal black and
white thinking..... 


Please excuse my intrusion Ms., but this type of naive ignorance promotes just the type of shelter many Islamists seek in the west. I suggest you check 16 doors down and  read the blog titled "Islam promotes oppression" and just read the exact quotes from Quran to get some ideas about why implementing Islamic law can produce "worrisome....psychological pathology".

Also, please avoid misnomers such as "racism" in referring to people denouncing Islam. Who is this Islamic race that you infer ? On what  basis do you, or can you exonerate Islam of all the past and present crimes ? 

I can ask several more direct questions that might be taken as unkind, but will leave it here.



The point of Ramadan

by cyclicforward on

   I never got the point of Ramadan. How does this concept of not eating for certain hours of the day help spirituality of man. Also Ramadan rotates with the solar calender. The summer is far longer than the winter time and potentially hazardous in summer time since people can not drink water. At least you would think they would allow water to be consumed. By the way how do you define Ramadan time in Alaska? In the summer the days don't end and in the winter time the nights never end.

rosie is roxy is roshan

Sorry, re-write (confusion), Q

by rosie is roxy is roshan on

There was a cross-post between you and me Q, and I meant to change one and changed the other. So I will try to get my whole point across.

I know Ramazan fasting is sunrise to sunset. So my interpretation of a good will gesture didn't make sense and if I were from the culture I would've gotten it right away. And it is a funny joke but one-liners almost never get featured so why was this one when it probably offended at least a few people? I don't think that's right.

But the real reason I couldn't get it right away is because I know the back story. Here is someone who has publicly proclaimed he has given up Islam-bashing for the sake of his marriage, which means more than anything to him in the world. Yet he CANNOT stop even just TALKING about it even though it is ruining his life.

This proves that he has an illness. I see it as obsessive-compulsive monomania. But monomia about what? About a religion. But all cultural chauvinism actually means: you are THIS and I am that so you are bad and I am good.. This is black and white thinking (no pun intended).

So here you have in a nutshell the real Iranian problem (or at least one of them). Not Islam, but monomaniacal black and white thinking, which breeds nothing but destruction.

And irony upon ironies, the black and white thinking, which is so negative, probably stems from Zoroastrianism! Which so many Islam haters yearn for, the golden age when everything was perfect before the scourge of Islam came 1400 years ago.

rosie is roxy is roshan

No, I understand the whole thing now, (cross-posts..)

by rosie is roxy is roshan on

the irony about the date part, the whole thing. 



by Q on

Under the guise of a "joke," he meant to take a shot rediculing Muslims, but since fasting actually won't begin until Saturday morning, this ended up being a joke on himself. However, the original malice was clear.

Yes, those should not have been featured. I fully agree. That's why I'm disappointed this one was.

rosie is roxy is roshan

Oh, I get it now! Du-uh... /PS Out to lunch

by rosie is roxy is roshan on

He says Ramadan already began. I thought it was to eat BEFORE the fast began, which I think people would do. A huge meal. You see, that's how incredible it seemed to me. In that case, yes, it is a very funny joke, but actually probably even more offensive to some religious Muslims. Either way I am against the featuring.

PS Okay, now I remember. You fast from sunrise to sunset.The thing is this whole background story behind this blog is so pathological that it made me forget all that since it's not part of my culture.

Frarmarz, sorry but you are out to lunch Your wife, how would she stomach you if she really knew what was cooking with you. No wonder your marriage is going sour. I really think you should chew on that for a while, even though it's hard to digest and may leave a bad taste in your mouth. Bon appetit.

rosie is roxy is roshan

I am still...

by rosie is roxy is roshan on

I am still willing to give the benefit of the doubt though, that the publisher thought it was sincere, because even after seeing other recent entries by Faramarz, I still could not believe it. Think about it. I feel bad about the fights onsite recently. Would it be so strange if I had some money for me to say I'll be in this restaurant in New York at this time, my treat, as a gesture of good will? No, I don't think it would be strange at all. I have seen other people offer people lunch here, invitations to stay at their home, etc. I'm almost positive I even saw one person invite anyone who would make a certain contribution to the site out to lunch.

Actually though, I don't understand your last point. If they were conspiracy theory blogs by nut cases, then they should not have been featured, right?



by Q on

I can understand your bitter surprise. This is nothing short of grade A bigotry on the front pages of Iranian.com. It is a very disappointing gesture on the part of the publisher.

To think of all those times, I vigorously defended against bigotry directed toward Jews and Bahais on this site on lengthy conspiracy blogs by nutbags very similar to this one... and those were never featured.

It is alot more than a choice! This criminal concept along with the criminal followers and their co-conspirators should never have the CHOICE. They are criminals, they should be punished, banned, or annihilated in meeting justice in accordance with cultural and societal norms. 

This is alot more serious than you describe. In the past 30 years we have experienced only a sample of what these Qhadesiyeh descendants and their more recent Turkic conspirators have done to the rest of the population for almost one and a half milennia, on and off! 

We have first hand experience of their savageries and barbaric culture, enough is enough! We have EARNED the right to denounce and express our outmost disgust, outrage and demand the total extermination of these barbarities. It is MY RIGHT to denounce ISLAM, I have EARNED it!

rosie is roxy is roshan

When I first saw the blog..

by rosie is roxy is roshan on

I thought it was sincere. After all, after making such a moving declaration about how his wife means more to him than anything in the world and this is the happiest day of his life because he chose her over Islam-bashing, what else could I have thought?

It's not a big stretch of the imagination. Think about it. What else could it be? I mean, which is more unlikely? That he would do that and then do THIS or that he has a restaurant he likes and he figures, well the worst that can happen is I'll eat alone, the best is that I'll get to meet a couple of people from the community (it's supposed to be a community right?). Either way it's a win-win situation because it is such a beautiful gesture to my wife.

Maybe that's what the publisher thought too. I'm sure I wasn't the only one. The only thing that doesn't make sense is when I checked his other recent entries and they were full of the same nonsense about an Islam-free Iran and things like that.




by Q on

Do you know Faramarz?


"Correction" ? How dense are you "brother"?

by Q on

From your own link second paragraph:

Based on sightability in North America, in 2009 Ramadan will start in North America a day later - on Saturday, the 22nd of August.

"Muslims like you" who live off the 405, will Start fasting on Saturday sunrise. Friday lunch is not part of the fast.

So you see Q, intelligence is not a subject you should comment on.

Ok, NOW that's funny, in a sad ignorant sort of way.

Ali P. surely you are right. But for it to be a "joke" to be laughed at, shouldn't it have the right date? If it did, it could pass for a joke. As it is, it's only a statement of ignorance.

Sassan2 Iranian culture that I practice does not celebrate vicious hate and bigotry.


Kaveh V

by Sassan2 on

I could not have said it better.

Iranians have a choice: Do you want to promote the identity of our rapists (muslim Arab invaders) OR do you want to promote the identity of our original forefathers?

You can't have both, not in the tortured historical context of Iran. Of course you can fool yourself into thinking you can be a muslim Iranian, but then, the muslim part would effectively overshadow and chip away at the true Iranian identity.

It's like water and oil -- it cannot be mixed. Iranian culture celebrates life (as illustrated in Norouz) whereas the Islamic culture celebrates death, as in every Islamic holiday.

It's a matter of Life and Death.

You can't choose both.

rosie is roxy is roshan

What happened, Faramarz?

by rosie is roxy is roshan on

Did your wife finally leave you? Or did she go on another trip to China where there is no Internet?  

You know, if it's the second one, that you have absolutely no respect for her and you are living a lie, right? You know if it's the first one that she is one smart babe.

Bahai teach tolerance in all walks of life. Islam is a large part of the core of the Bahai religion. Even when they are born into the faith, they choose it. I bet when you wooed her you never told her the truth or she never would have married you. Unless she thought she could reform you. Either way she must be sorely disappointed, to put it mildly.

No, it is not about THIS blog. It is this blog in conjunction with other recents blogs and comments. You do realize that at this point this is a public humiliation of your wife in front of hundreds of people, don't you? And of yourself. YOU JUST CAN'T STOP, can you? Now while you chuckle about your joke, chuckle about that too..


PS Regarding the featuring. Exactly, Ali. Many Muslims would laugh.

And many others wouldn't 



Ali P.

To: Q

by Ali P. on

I believe you gathered (maybe rightfully) this as 'rediculing Muslims', because it came from FF, who - we all know- is no friend of Islam.

Jay Leno or Moz Jebrani could have told this joke, and many Muslims would laugh at it.
