Shortly after the Soviet puppet East German Communists erected a wall separating East Germany from the western part, U.S. President John F. Kennedy delivered a solidarity message in the encircled free Berlin. The most notable quote from that speech which gave hope to millions who needed it was, Ich bin ein Berliner" (I am a Berliner).
The cries for freedom from the enslaved Iranians are being heard in the real and cyber world. Basketball great, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has heard it, //kareemabduljabbar.com/, others who care need to speak up and make their silent solidarity with the freedom wanting Iranians a public one. I am an Iranian would you be one too?

Ist Obama "Ein Tehraner"?by Jahanshah Rashidian on Sat Jun 20, 2009 06:51 AM PDT
President Kennedy’s sentence “Ich bin ein Berliner” is known by any school kid in Germany. It has been repetitively mentioned during President Obama’s two visits of Germany both before and after his election.
While the, once prudent, EU leaders like Brown, Sarkozy, and Merkel now openly crticise IRI brutalities against Iranian civil demonstrators, Obama remains reluctant. Obama’s judgement on Iran’s election protests in his last interview in CNBC "not productive, given the history of U.S.-Iranian relations, to be seen as meddling.", seems an outdated excuse for the Iranian youth protesting the Ahamadinejad as a result of a fresh "coup". Being sorry for the 1953 coup does not justify being reluctant toward the 2009 coup.
How about the values of human rights, what was an apparent tradition, if not a lip service, of his fellow Democrats, Kennedy, Carter, and Al Gore?
Obama’s reluctant position on IRI brutalities seems an option which is not followed by many US politicians and even some of his cabinet members like Clinton and Binden. Millions of Tehrani demonstrators would ask themselves if Obama finally speaks up saying "Ich bin ein Tehraner"?
