We Are All "Moharebs," or Should be if We Want Freedom, Democracy, and Human Rights

1. After the victory of the revolution, the fundamentalists (Khomeini and Khalkhali) executed about 500 (mostly monarchist) officials. Many remained silent...because they were not monarchist.

2. During the First Reign of Terror (June 1981-December 1983), between 12,000 and 20,000 political prisoners (mostly Kurdish leftists, Marxists, PMOI Mojaheds, and a few liberals) were executed. Many remained silent...because they were afraid....or because they were not Kurd, or Marxist, or Mojahed, or liberal democrat.

3. During the Second Reign of Terror (August-October 1988), between 3,500 and 5,000 (mostly PMOI Mojahedin, Marxists, and Kurdish Resistance) were executed. Many remained silent...because they opposed Mojahedin and Marxists.

4. During the Chain Murders (1989-1999), several hundred prominent leaders (mostly secular liberals and Kurdish leaders), political activists, and literary figures (progressives and liberal democrats) were assassinated inside Iran and outside Iran. Many remained silent...because they were afraid or because they were not liberal or democrat.

5. Now we are witnessing the Third Reign of Terror (June 2009-Present), many political activists have been assassinated (Greens), tortured to death (Greens), and executed (PMOI, Kurds, Baluchis). Many remained silent...because they are afraid of being attacked by the supporters of the fundamentalist terrorist regime accused of being a supporter of PMOI, Kurds, or Greens.

Once and for all, we Iranians have to learn that we have to oppose executions of ALL political prisoners regardless of what the fundamentalist terrorist regime thugs and its supporters say. Fundamentalist terrorist agents and the supporters of the terrorist regime will attack anyone who opposes and condemns executions. We NEED to be brave and to publically CONDEMN execution of any and all political prisoners.

We need to defend the human rights of all those with whose ideology and methods of struggle we disagree with.

The fundamentalist terrorist regime wants to intimidate into submission ALL Iranians who disagree with the terrorist regime’s policies (2009 election, Green Movement resistance to the June 2009 coup, subsidy cuts, next election). THIS is the REASON why they are executing various political prisoners.

There should be a red line. On one side of the red line are Khamenei and Ahmadinejad. On other side are all those who oppose Khamenei and Ahmadinejad.

At this historical juncture, WE have ONE primary enemy; OUR primary enemy is Khamenei-Ahmadienjad fascist gang.

I suggest we do things that would piss off supporters of Khamenei and Ahmadinejad.

To piss off the fundamentalist terrorists, I am posting the following music videos:

What was the real opposition doing? Why wasn't the opposition united? There had been rumors of uprisings before the presidential "elections," but it caught everyone by surprise. Why? Millions of Iranians inside and outside of Iran voted for Mousavi and Karoubi as the lesser evils and not because they thought these two would bring democracy. They didn't want Ahmadinejad the buffoon. They wanted him out, but Ahmadi's gang had planned a coup knowing he would not get elected. Where is the opposition, now? Why isn't it united, yet? Is there a real desire to have a free Iran among the opposition forces? Is getting united as difficult as some would want to believe? What are those difficulties which prevent them from joining forces and how can they be overcome?

Dear Dr. Kazemzadeh:

by G. Rahmanian on

This idea of a united front should have been/should be taken more seriously by those leading the opposition in diaspora. Iranians inside have proven to the world they want change. They have been ready for it since right after the first massacres. The war with Iraq gave the regime more than enough time to consolidate its murderous grip on power. However, like every social phenomenon it has also given birth to its own antithesis epotimized in the disintrgration of the once seemingly unified partnership among different factions of the ruling circles. Reading the news one can easily see the regime is losing control. Soon Iranians will be taking to streets in major cities of Iran. This time it will be even larger than in 2009. And opposition in diaspora is lagging behind, again! Iranians deserve better. Iranians inside Iran need all the support they can get and the oppositon outside of Iran is waiting for miracles to happen. You know that it is only through organized work that things happen. The real unity should come about at different levels. Here on this site it's like "Come as you are!" type of thing. As one our friends suggested to another a short while ago, "it's like a home away from home." And I like to add to that, "with a bunch of obnoxious salespersons trying to sell fake "designer goods" made in the Islamic Republic."

Mehraban: Too ture. I think, ultimately, the US and the oil mafia don't want the 'NEZAM' to change, and Mousavi delivers....lol

Wishful Thinking Won't Get Us Anywhere ... 

Is that ALL you Jomhurykhah's got to suggest as a Political Platform for Change?

Generalities Like: "GOOD IS GOOD" and "BAD IS BAD" ?


Swingin' the alphabet


Well Big Deal ...


Or Like the French would say : 

"on n'est pas sorti de l'auberge ..."
