Doctor Rostiani and Roozbeh,

Dr. R, I believe there are very few people here who consider Hossein a hero. I have many thoughts on this which I will write here tomorrow. Sorry for the delay. And Roozbeh, I hardly think that anything having to do with Hossein is irrelevant on this website at this time and I certainly didn't mean to imply that this submission is. On the contrary, nothing could be more relevant. I just think ihat the intent and focal point(s) of submissions on him should be very clear. Many people need to know. They are confused, and torn. Personally I'm not confused and I'm not torn, but I'm deeply distressed, and I dearly want to understand people's thoughts on all this across the entire spectrum.

My View

by Dr. Mansur Rastani on


Dear Rosie,I just wanted to introduce the real character of Derakhshan to so many who had made a hero out of him. People have to watch out, not everyone who is arrested by the criminal regime of IRI is a hero.I usually don’t waste my time on IRI and its mercenaries and lobbyists, my views on them has been reflected in all my prior articles, I just say to them “Go to Hell”.
