I would like to plead [khahesh be shoma] with you to stop the personal attacks and acrimonious exchanges. BOTH of you are decent human beings. Both of you are highly intelligent, educated, and open-minded. Although there are differences, these are over the best MEANS to achieve a better situation in Iran.
It is normal human reaction to get angry, disappointed and emotional. Both of you are sensitive human beings, which is a wonderful human trait, and perhaps why both of you were attracted to progressive causes and political currents. In all likelihood, observing poverty, oppression, and inequality were the reasons that both of you look to methods to remedy these human miseries.
It is necessary to discuss all political groups, their histories, their mistakes, and their achievements. We have to do these discussions, so that we, and the younger generation, would not make the same mistakes again.
Both of you have made great contributions to our little community here. Both of you are truly valuable members of our cyber neighborhood. This place is much much richer for your presence here.
I would to khahesh to both of you, to stop personal attacks. Perhaps, do not exchange any posts for one day. Once the negative emotions have subsided, then begin writing your usual thoughtful intellectual posts containing evidence and logical arguments.
I have the greats regards for BOTH of you. And I hope to see thoughtful comments from both of you soon.
