A Note of Gratitude to Ms. Farah Rusta


Masoud Kazemzadeh
by Masoud Kazemzadeh

Dear Ms. Rusta,

1. I want to thank you for your kind note. Your kind comment was significant precisely because we have had serious differences and have had many debates on this site.

2. Monarchists and melliun have had our differences, and monarchists and jomhurikhahan will have our differences in the future.

3. And we have our commonalities as well. We both strongly oppose the fundamentalist terrorist regime and struggle to send it to the garbage can of history where it truly belongs.

4. I hope that very soon, we all can live in Iran with each having his or her own ideals and groups and coexist in mutual respect in a pluralistic polity.

5. I hope our monarchist friends would save the url of my two blogs on NIAC’s relationship with the CIA. When any official, member, or supporter of NIAC criticizes the Shah or Gen. Zahedi, then you could simply refer them to my blogs, and ask them the 6 questions that I asked.

If NIAC members and supporters said that in order to accomplish NIAC’s goals, it is acceptable for NIAC official or officials to provide lecture or whatever to the CIA, then you can say, "for Gen. Zahedi to accomplish his goal, it is acceptable to have had a relationship with the CIA."

And similarly if next year, some person has gets money from the CIA, and some of the above criticized him or her, simply tell them: "for Mr. ____ or Ms. ____ in order to accomplish their goals, it is acceptable to have a relationship with the CIA." You could add that the fundamentalist regime is soooooooooooo genocidal that getting help from the CIA is acceptable to accomplish the goal of overthrowing the terrorist regime.

Then, it will simply come down to, "it is acceptable for my leader and my organization, and those who agree with my views to have a relationship with the CIA, but it is not acceptable for leaders of other groups or other organizations, or those who do not share my views to have a relationship with the CIA."

Americans have a saying: "what’s good for the goose is good for the gander."

6. And when those who are not supporters of NIAC such as Iranian Marxists, who might criticize the Shah and Gen. Zahedi, then ask them to first read my two blog, then make their position clear on the role of Dr. Trita Parsi and NIAC (e.g., whether they support it or condemn it), and only then they could say something on the Shah’s relationship with the CIA.

Here are the url of my two blogs. Save them, they might come handy:



Again, thank you for your kind comments.

Pledge of Unity Among All Opposition Groups

by Masoud Kazemzadeh on

G. Rahmanian:  It's nice to see you have made peace. In the face of the calamities Iranians have been experiencing for the past three decades and the more urgent task of exposing regime's crimes, those who oppose it cannot afford the luxury of fighting on different fronts amongst themselves.


Masoud: I hope someone would write some sort of formula or suggestion for how the supporters of ALL opposition groups should do on this site. It may be called: "Pledge of Unity Among ALL Opposition Groups," or "Call for Unity Among ALL Opposition Groups." In this call or pledge all the groups that call for regime change, would support this call or pledge. 


1. I think we all could make the pledge to ONLY confront, challenge or attack the fundamentalist regime and its supporters at Iranian.com.

2. Or we all could make the pledge to ONLY confront NIAC and its supporters.


3. Or we all could make the pledge to only confront TWO groups: (1) the fundamentalist regime and its supporters; and (2) NIAC and its supporters.


As an experiment, we could make this pledge or call for a 2 month trial period and see what happens. And learn from the experience. Then, we could extend it for another 6 months. And then extend it again and again.

Let me know what you think. Then, one of us who write the call or pledge.

Dear Calypso, the only person I know who has turned into a Mousavi looking thing is Q!  ...... I am not Davy Jones! ..., as you know the story goes that Davy Jones and Calypso did not get along that well!

My Dear Lady Rusta,

by 13th Legion on

Thank you for your kind and heartfelt words, you made my heart smile ;)

Life is an overwhelming experience for most of us and perhaps a big heart and good feelings are my biggest asset in life, I can only hope to keep them to the very end of time ;)

Bah, bah, sailing away with Davy Jones in the Flying Dutchman to those distant shores….Now I’m truly jealous now and will have to find new ways to win your heart ;)

Have a wonderful evening, enjoy the tea.

You are such a lovely friend, full of good feelings and a big heart.  Don't let the rifraf boil your blood just treat them with the humor theu deserve. Thanks again  for all the nice words

Dear Davy,

You have made me young and youthful again. I am waiting for the day that you and I sail away in the Flying Dutchman to those distant shores and breathe the air of freedom.


Well, I may be attached but I can still have a dream! Godbless you my friend :)

If there was one hand that I wished I could warmly shake, it would have been yours (and of course now, I am delighted to say, that of our mutual friend Samsam). Bygones are bygones and all that remains are good feelings. Like your friend Samsam, you are among the most sincere and honest people I have had the pleasure of meeting on this site.

Here is my Five!

found your Davy Jones (to Calypso)

by marhoum Kharmagas on

Dear Calypso, I found your Davy Jones ( //www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wwcAb23Euw ), ...., you tricky lady, instead of a sea looking creature you turned him to a Mousavi looking thing!  You are "bad", "bad" Calypso!

Back to topic, not sure why your Davy Jones does not see that it is devotion to AIPAC/US ....., that brings you Monarchists and these "JMis"  together!

"I would like to use this opportunity and extend a hand of friendship to
all those who are prepared to put the national interests of their
homeland above their political and religious interests.


I have no clue as to how, when or where our bitterness started, but here, I stretch a hand to you in PEACE :-)


Peace out.

Dear Mr. MK & Ms. Farah Rusta…….

by 13th Legion on

It just fills my heart with great joy whenever I see my fellow Iranians despite different views and doctrines reach a point of mutual respect, tolerance and unity, perhaps this is one of the social points that the true enemy’s of Iran fear most! For us to unite one day.I would like to share my heartfelt compliments on your line of social ethics ;)

@ “Q” and Sargord Pirooz:

I have to admit that once more your words take me back to the memory of blog that our friend “The Prince” posted on 31-Aug-2010 titled:

Faati, you got some esplainin to do!!!



the way I see it people like Mr. MK & Ms. Farah Rusta tend to make their positions very clear when they blog on IC, and as the above blog suggests perhaps it would be a bit Manley of you to show some courage and state your true positions instead of taking cheap shots every chance you get!

Faati, you got some esplainin to do!!! ;))

Still obsessed with Parkhash?

by Farah Rusta on



"...a notoriously foulmouthed Monarchist based in London ... exposed here a while back.

Since our Quirky friend began stalking me a couple of years ago, first I found his obsession amusing, then for a while he became irritating but now he is Quite entertaining! And I have no intention of ending this free of charge entertainment. So I am supposed to a foulmouthed, notorious Londoner monarchist male!! Of all these allegations the one that hurt most was this:male!

Aren't we living in an age of gender equality? I am not surpised that my other friend Sargord Pirouz being a misogyst - army is full of them - but a society photgrapher with intellectual pretnsions?!  My God wheres is our world going :)) 

OK, jokes aside, it is dinner time in London and I must prepare the tea (English slang for dinner) LOL


ta ta 



ps- Q joon could you please supply us with the link to your expose - must be so entertaining


Please tell us about your accomplishments, instead !

by MM on

Instead of boasting, complaining and especially playing the blame-game, please tell us about your accomplishments in the areas of 1. Opposing the MKO’s rhetoric; 2. Acting on behalf of issues important to Iranian-Americans; and 3. Opposing the IRI’s injustices while countering the war-mongers.

For a partial list of NIAC's accomplishments in the above areas, see:

Sorry… mind if I mop while you mope?


If yours or PDMI organizations are better, let's hear about your accomplishments.  And, pleeeeeeeeeeeeease stop smooching other organizations to come to your rescue of poor performance in debate, logic and reasoning.


NIAC Smears: Episode 2 the CIA smear


If you cant smear NIAC and tie them to the regime lets try smearing them and tieing them to the CIA. See if that will stick. 


Come on people grow up! Why not just come out of the closet and say that you guys support war and/or sanctions in Iran? It's more honest that way.

Dear Dr Kazemzadeh

by Farah Rusta on

I just noticed your blog and I am deeply touched and grateful. I didn't even expect a reply to my last comment on one of your two  recent blogs  let alone a whole blog being given to your very kind note. 

Therefore, allow me to thank you first and foremost for being a true gentleman. Despite what some of our other "friends" may say about me, the most important principle for men to observe in their communications with women is what may be described as gentlemanly respect. although a majority of male contributors to this site are respectful of  female commenter and bloggers,  I have witnessed this principle being so frequently breached by a few. In all our exchanges to date and against a sometimes emotionally charged opponent you behaved most politley and like a real gentleman. I sincerely thank you.

I would like to use this opportunity and extend a hand of friendship to all those who are prepared to put the national interests of their homeland above their political and religious interests. In posing the questions that you have in the two aforementioned blogs you have proved to be such principled and conscientious Iranian.

Gender bender, and then some!

by Hoshang Targol on

And who is the biggest loser: getting insulted 20 times a day, just to remind us of the spectacle. At least we're not clowns, Mark.

As far as the content of the text, MK's work on this issue is groundbreaking, authorative and utilitarain ( it will come in handy) . So, aghay Kazemzadeh khasteh nabashi, o damt garm 


Was it not Khomeini who was

by vildemose on

Was it not Khomeini who was supported by the US, BBC, the French and all the other usual suspects?

Khomeini interview in 1978 asking the world to help him for the regime change:


"Khomeini, himself, the ultimate pursuer of independence and the bastion of protection against foreign intervention, believes that the peoples of the world, and the governments of the world, should step in and affect a regime change in Iran to save Iranians from Human Rights abuses and the tyranny of the Shah.. "


Gender bender

So what? As long as I'm an avatar, I see and hear nothing but an avatar for which I feel no urge to ask for a date!!


Never increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything.

Q, that's funny.  Yeah,

by Sargord Pirouz on

Q, that's funny. 

Yeah, Masoud, it appears you're in the company of fellow looney Iranian exiles. What a spectacle you people are. 


Farah Rusta is a man

by Q on

he is a notoriously foulmouthed Monarchist based in London who used to go by "Parkhash" or Parviz Khashaki in various lists and newsgroups for years. He was exposed here a while back.

Don't be fooled Kazemzadeh. I know you don't want to believe me, but abuse of fake/anonymous status is a pet peeve of mine and thus I consider it a duty to warn people about Parkhash.
