Iranians, their jeans, and Netanyahu's deceit | omidsafi

After President Rouhani’s widely successful UN speech and the historic phone call between Rouhani and Obama, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has taken to his own offensive. 

 

He gave an interview to BBC Persian, in which he claimed to show compassion for Iran’s people, talking about the murder of the Iranian martyr Neda [Agha-Soltan] during the Green Revolution.

 

Yet Netanyahu’s words about the Iranian government “regime’s control of Iran, it’s aggre ...

It comes down to this simple fact. When the Muslim countries, especially the Islamic Republic of Iran, fully accepts and respects the right of the tiny Jewish state to live in peace, all problems can be and will be solved.

The not so simple fact is in fact that many Muslim countries have accepted the “tiny Jewish state to live in peace”, if they were willing to stay within the boundaries of their home land which by international law is within the 1967 borders, and not continuously endeavor on growing their land by grabbing, stealing and occupying their neighboring states land.

No Arab or Muslim state has yet accepted Israel as the Jewish state and homeland. Not yet. As for the borders, right now it has borders with two Arab countries, Egypt and Jordan. The two sole Arab countries to have signed peace treaties with Israel, but even these have not acknowledged Israel as the native homeland of the Jewish people. As for Judah and Samaria ("the West Bank"), their status are under negotiations and have been since 1993. But while the leaders of the PLO have acknowledged the right of Israel to exist, they refuse to recognize it as the Jewish state. That means they still do not recognize Jewish national rights to their ancient homeland. SO it makes no sense to Jews. The only reason why Jews came to live there again is only because it is our tribal ancient homeland. And even the name "Golan" is a Hebrew name first mentioned in our Bible. So Israel today occupies nobody else's land, but only Jewish land. We are not allowed under Jewish law to claim anyone else's land for ourselves. It is completely contrary to Jewish law to do so.

Now, what your comment has anything to do with iranians wearing jeans or not and the topic of this blog ?

again since you brought it up >>>> Israel has no right , absolutely no right , to threat other people , kill them , torture them , bomb their country and make a jail out of an entire nation and or force people to recognize it.

The more Israel uses these tactics, the more its very own existence will be in danger…

YES >>> Israel is its own worse enemy…. Israel will destroy its own very existence if continues to bully the world …

If israel wants its stolen lands to be seen as legal and if Israel wants its existence be admired by other countries then it should behave like human rather than an animal that Israel has turned to especially under BiBI and his RIGHT wing party !

I don't recall that Netanyahu said that if Iranians were truly free that they would be wearing jeans, etc. But what I do think he should have said is, that if Iranians were truly free they wouldn't have to worry about the "modesty police" harassing people. I think that clerics have the right to enforce modest dress inside mosques or around religious shrines, but I don't think it is the job of clerics to have their police generally scaring people into dressing as they consider appropriate on the street.

Now that you brought up the subject , do you know what BiBI should have done?

BiBI who has hired the Iranian Jihadist (MEK) for his assassination campaign inside Iran, could have at least asked those jihadist to take a photo from the iranian people walking down the streets to see that Iranian people actually do wear jeans !

" To protest against Netanyahu Iranians are planning to wear #jeans all day on thursday!
- Iran's سوسول civil society! "

P_J. An Iranian!

Isn't this ironic, that a deceitful hypocrite like Netanyahu with scruples of a snake oil salesman, would preach human right value to anyone, even the Islamofascist Mullah! Let’s not forget that he supported an embezzling murdering tyrant like M R Pahlavi, the traitor, or Mubarak??!! A man whose job has been to lead an apartheid Israeli government that has been violating ALL possible Palestinian RIGHT(S), every day, including their rights to travel; old Soviet Union style.

While he follows the practices of the old Soviets, he uses Churchill’s proverb that said “The best defense is a good offence”, hiding behind those words he has been trying to confuse issues, and mudding the water. Trouble is that he is too obvious and he lacks any charm offensive. In other words, preaching what he has never practiced, thinking that he can FOOL and divert world attention from the brutality of his government toward Palestinians, or that he could fool or deceive the world populous!

Charity starts at home; if he is so passionate about observing or preserving Iranians’ human rights, then he should stop shedding those transparent and obvious crocodile tears, that fools no one, and to make an example….he should be practicing what he preaches that means respecting those same rights at home for the Palestinians!

He says: “If the people of Iran were free they could wear jeans and listen to Western music.”

The article points out: "The statement is telling on a number of levels. The most obvious part is Netanyahu’s utter ignorance of what real Iranians actually wear, the range of social practices inside Iran"

Passionate, informative and entertaining, thanks for posting it.
