Having read that many opinions and debates on the matter Mirfendereski
versus Persian Watch Cat, I felt compelled to go back and see what was
going on. In my search for the truth, I ran into the original piece (better
to say MASTERPIECE)
by Mr. Mirfendereski, the one which suggests that Iranian Americans who
have problems with luggage and body searches in U.S. airports should contact
the representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran (Daftar) in Washington,
Now I understand why we had so much fuss on this very productive proposal
of Mr. Mirfendereski. People just don't get it. Well, to clarify the situation,
I would like to state the following supplementary proposals:
-- All Jewish Americans who have any problem in the U.S., please contact
Israeli embassy in Washington, DC.
-- All African Americans who feel discriminated in the U.S., please
contact African embassies of your origin such as Congo or South African
embassy in Washington, DC.
-- All Irish Americans who have issues with the U.S. government, please
refer to Embassy of Ireland in DC.
-- All blonde Americans who feel discriminated by the U.S. government
officials, please refer to the Swedish or German embassies or the representatives
of Northern European countries of your choice located in Washington, DC.
Therefore, only and only if you are a Native American Indian and you
are mistreated in a U.S. airport, you may consider contacting U.S. government
officials directly. Of course only if you recognize the U.S. government
as your own government and not as an occupying power.
Finally, if I myself should encounter any mistreatment or discrimination
at a U.S. airport, I refer myself to Mr. Mirfenfdereski. May God help him
to help me.
