The mullahs’ strategy is simple. To retain power, they need an enemy. They thus seek to keep their country on a perpetual war footing by playing up the notion that the Bush administration is conspiring to overthrow them, destroy the Islamic republic and undermine Islam itself. Nonviolent activists, human-rights defenders and intellectuals are labeled enemy agents. And Iran’s deteriorating economic conditions are attributed to U.S. sanctions rather than to Tehran’s chronic mismanagement.
Are we Iranians that weak and unorganized outside the religious circles, that we can let people say such stupid things. We Iranians cannot, like any other human beings stand up for peace. That we cannot organise a unity based on love and peace that can organize a national non violent strike? How can we sit there and take such rubbish from such writers. For how long should we Iranians just not say “enough is enough, we want peace, and anyone that distrubs the peace, is wrong”.
