By now the unbridled suppression of those Iranians who had chosen to peacefully express their political views after yet another sham “election” by the Islamist Rapist Republic (IRR) is beyond dispute.
During just that episode of continuing brutality by IRR, which has included cold blooded murder of at least 150+ Iranians and imprisoning thousands, many other men, woman and children were raped by IRR officials at rape centers.
In an in-depth 2010 interview with AlJazeera television network, rebroadcasted yesterday, after doing her routine about how the Mullah’s are misrepresenting Islamic laws and the fact that her brother Ja’far was an “advisor” of Mohammad Khatami during his “presidency”, Shirin Ebadi made the following statement:
“Under the shah the discriminatory laws were fewer. But in general, political freedom at present is much higher than the political freedom under the Shah. If it were under the Shah at the moment, rest assured that I would not have been able to sit in front of you, and blatantly criticize the government.
… What I mean is we had less political freedom under the Shah than we do at present.”
Knowing that Ebadi along with a good number of other IRR “reformist” minded have chosen to live outside Iran where this interview was conducted, two questions come to mind:
1- Is she right about now having more “political freedom”?
2- At what point should IRR “reformists” accept the obvious fact that their beloved is reform-proof?
