One day shall come that being a muslim is a crime and you have to deny even being one to avoid jail.

What I am posting here and blogging about may actually make many Islam haters on IC happy and ready to attack as usual. I do expect nothing from these death to Islam crowd of IC. I should say do not even bother !!

I only ask those who cares , muslim or non muslim , religious or non religious ones to be a voice for the voiceless. Let it be written that at this time of the history the target is no longer Jews or Communists but it is " ISLAM "

New McCarthy-like Congressional hearings beginning this Thursday about Muslims in America


Congress To Hold Hearings On Muslim Threat

Things may get worse, Rep. Peter King (R-NY), Chair of the Homeland Security Committee of the House of Representatives, is holding McCarthy-like Congressional hearings beginning this Thursday on the "Radicalization of American Muslims."

Quite a bit of the proposed witness list has looked like a who's who of Islamophobes,
and we Muslim Americans are holding our collective breath waiting for the fallout from these hearings.

We wonder: will we see more hate mobs outside our mosques or events due to hysteria being whipped up by these hearings?

It's certainly possible, and Muslims around the country are strategizing on how to respond to protect our faith community from more bigoted protests,
or even dangerous attacks on our places of worship and individuals.



A Minnesota Democrat, congressman Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the House,

says that while it's proper to investigate radicalization, he thinks it is wrong to single out a religious minority.

"I worry about it," he said on the program. "Everybody I talk to worries about it, and we're concerned about the breadth of this."

He added, "It's absolutely the right thing to do for the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee to investigate radicalization,

but to say we're going to investigate a religious minority, and a particular one, I think is the wrong course of action to take."

On Sunday, groups opposed to King's hearings plan to rally in New York. President Barack Obama's deputy national security adviser

will speak on the administration's approach to countering domestic radicalization.

Compare Muslims in U.S. to Bahais in IRI

by AMIR1973 on

Whether Democrat or Republicans are in the White House or Congress and even after 9/11, Muslims in the U.S. can practice their religion freely and can advance in their careers and get undergraduate and graduate degrees at prestigious universities. In the paradise known as the Islamic Republic, over 200 Bahais have been executed for their religion and Bahais cannot practice their indigenous Iranian religion without the risk of jail or losing their jobs or place at the university. That is the difference between the United States and the Islamic Republic. No wonder even the IRI Groupies prefer to live here than in the Islamist paradise!


Terrorist entities, such as Al_Qaeda, Islamist regime of Iran...

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

have given the muslims worldwide a very bad name and reputation. Once islamist regime is overthrown, it's leadership and hardcore supporters tried and punished for their crimes against  humanity, the line of support for other terrorist gangs like hamas and hizbullah will dry up, their terrorism will die down. Over time muslims will be treated like other religious minorities and not a bunch of terrorists.

"Personal business must yield to collective interest."

Mehrdad: I agree! All those who advocate acts of terrorism must

be subjected to the same law!


Shotor: Out of the 8, 000, 000 Muslims I venture to guess that 70% would get a kick and delight out of every time some terrorist acts is perpetrated against the civilized world. 70% of 8 Million is 5.6 Million who should all be deported. I mean it. America doesn't need their skills. I would deport myself if I were a Muslim! 


ELS: Before they can do that

by Bavafa on

First they will need to decide on a firm definition of terrorism, one that themselves could not be brought up & tried in the court of law. Then it would be wise to apply it to all then just Muslims, no need to leave loopholes so the same act can be done by a non-Muslim and get away with it.


Mola Nasredeen

There are more than

by Mola Nasredeen on

8 million Muslims living in USA. A few alienated ones committed terrorist acts. They were mostly exposed and reported by the help of other Muslims. These are the facts.

Deportation of Muslims who refuse to denounce terrorism ...

by Everybody Loves Somebody ... on

should be ratified by the Congress of US of A and exercised by the law-enforcing agencies and authorities across this great nation of ours.

It's time for the Muslims to decide between Khorma and Khar! You can't have both. You can't have your cake and eat it too! It's as simple as that!

so, there it is

nobody was able to add anything of value to your blog.

They all came over shouted some nonsense and walked away.


Because of what I stated on my very first comment on this thread.

They are a bunch of alienated delusional individuals who hate themselves for being Iranian and Muslim, now that's the first group.

The second group consists of a few self confessed pro Israel, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran individuals who never lose an opportunity to put down all Muslims without exception. This group showed its aligance to Mubarak's regime during the Uprising in Egypt, nothing but a bunch of reactionaries. 

Your analogy of what's going on in New York with McCarthyism is right on the money.

What is McCarthyism but "the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence"?

Imagine you are a Muslim American family, following the rules, working hard, paying your taxes and voting in elections but being looked upon with suspicion.

Thousands of Muslims could lose their jobs, being attacked, their businesses burned, their children rediculed at schools or be investigated for no good reason, all because they attend musques or they have Islamic names. This is what's it's all about.

How interesting

by Cost-of-Progress on

that this camel dude shows up when there's a blog about praising islam, the arab religion.

OK, Islam is great, just keep its filthy paws off my Iran.

Mulsims have NOT condemned terrorism committed by other Muslims!

by Everybody Loves Somebody ... on

Not enough and overtly! You can't have both Khorma & Khar! You can't expect to be treated like human beings and yet rejoice when your fellow Muslims murder innocent children and folks!

Just look at how the so-called Muslims (e.g., Shotor & Comp.) encourage barbaric acts against the great and peaceful people of Israel! It's time for justice to go after the perpetrators of violence against the humanity!

Muslims are due to pay heavy price because of their fellow Muslims mischievous acts!

The best option for Muslims is to convert to non-Muslims whatever it may be, Judaism, Catholicisms, Bah'aism, etc.

In the meantime, God Bless, God Bless Iran, God Bless America, God Bless Israel, and God Bless the author of this blog!
But God UnBless IRR!

alleges means accused but not proven ........

it soon will be proven if you do not stand against it .......

America is not going towards the direction

that those who had established the constitution had in mind ....

The story goes that Benjamin Franklin was approached by a woman as he left the Constitutional Convention 

She asked:

“What have you given us?”

Franklin is said to have replied:

“A republic, if you can keep it.”


Today I even believe the Founders gave us a democracy, instead of a constitutional republic, or a hybridized version of the two, called a democratic republic. 

let us see if we can keep it !

in many of my replies here

by Soosan Khanoom on

in many of my replies here on IC I said that I live in the U.S ........ 

nothing to hide ....... my family moved here more than 60 years ago including my grandfather... in a broken ship sometime around and after WWII .....  my father married and choose to live in Iran  ...... but my parents and I had been visiting them almost every summer till the revolution came and we all got stocked in Iran not being even able to travel .......... I spend most of my childhood and youth in the revolution and war  and i moved  to U.S two decades ago to attend college and the twists and turns of life kept me here .........  like many of you here on IC ..... there is nothing different in that respect ....... now what it has to do with my blog on this current affair?   I agree there are hypocrite living in the U.S regardless of their religions and countries of origin but I am not the one ... 

I hope I have answered all your questions ....... 



Soosan Khanoom alleges:

by Reality-Bites on

"New McCarthy-like Congressional hearings about Muslims in America and One day shall come that being a muslim is a crime and you have to deny even being one to avoid jail."    

And yet, every passing year tens if not hundreds of thousands of Muslims continue to flock to go to America (and that's not counting millions more Muslims who would jump at the opportunity to join them, given half a chance).    

And when they get there, put down roots and enjoy the benefits of life in that land, some of them continually denounce and berate that very America.    

Just out of interest Soosan Khanoom, do you happen to live in America?

Soosan Khanoom

Hopefully that is the case

by Soosan Khanoom on

Hopefully that is the case DM Jan : ) I am a peace activists .... and I am proud of any progressive voice being a Jew , Muslim , Christian or any other religion and school of thought as well as atheists. It does not matter what is your religion or belief ........ it does not matter at all ..... what does matter is to treat people the way you want to be treated and be honest at your heart ....... we are the generation that has lost ourselves to our blind ideology whatever that ideology was ....... we are the generation of name callings and hate ...... no one has been better than another ....... Some saw the water and started to swim as the case with IRI ...... some are waiting still to swim giving them the water they are no bad at it at all ....... For an IRI supporter there is no understanding of torture and jail cause they have never faced it ....... that would be exactly the same case for a Shahee if Shah was in power .... for a MKO if they were on power ...for a Fadaee if a Fadaee was on power ....... for a Bahaee if a Bahee was on power ...... that wold be the case for any political and religious group if that group was on power .......... I am saying enough is enough to this up your eyes ........ learn to forgive and forget .. learn to move on and create a better place for our kids ........... as the citizen of world no matter wich part of this planet you live we have to give our kids the life that we never had chance to live .......   I have high hope for the next generation and our youth to achieve a permeant middle east peace and yes that is the case agree or not ...... something that their parents have failed to achieve due to their lack of knowledge and understanding of themselves and their opponents. let us start from ourselves here at IC ........ let us starting today we all set our differences aside and stop labeling our opponents .. Mulla Nasruddin and Mash Ghasem ........ come on cool down     .....  cheers : )

Dear Friends

by Soosan Khanoom on

 To everyone here who cared to show up and is hoping to be a voice for the truth:

We need to develop our dialogue with each other so we can move toward mutual understanding, mutual trust and mutual respect. Otherwise we are going to base our relationships with each other on mutual fear and mutual prejudice. 


Ms. Chief Police in Mejico

by Doctor mohandes on

The 20 year old, The youngest chief of police who manned up:)) to take up the Job no one else would dare has more dignity than Our shotor-keeping pseudo-democracy lover Molla.

Hey mola.

I heard you are helping her file her asylum paperworks?

Ya mo;llla. Ya shotor.

you shotor.

Every 30 seconds, that half a minute: a child dies of hunger. You want to cry, cry over that, but I don't think majority of them are muslim, so you really can't relate to that, can you?  and there are a thousand more worse stories. Your non-alienated self should get more familiarized  with real problems of  humanity.

I heard you were abusing you shotor, is that true?

Mola Nasredeen

So here you are,

by Mola Nasredeen on

Showing how shallow you really are.

living in the past

alienated from present

blind to the realities of today's world.

Running and screaming at others

as if this is a child play

while people who look like

or dress like Muslims

get shot and killed

right here and now.

You're condemn to live with your ignorance.

Mash Ghasem

Mola, you and other Nameless Soliders of Imam, in here

by Mash Ghasem on

are  the number one demonizers I have ever seen, go feed shotory & you know what!

Mola Nasredeen


by Mola Nasredeen on

talk is cheap,

Demonizing does not work anymore here.

Demonizing others happen when you have nothing to prove your point. This is exactly the point of this blog.

Demonize the Muslims, call them terrorist, blah, blah, blah

Mash Ghasem

Actually he's partially correct, Nameless Solider of Imam

by Mash Ghasem on

would be the more up to date title. Whado ya thank Mola "jan"? how's the Shotory, feeding him well?

On the serious side, the sort of security state active in "Liberal" Western societies from Sweden to the US makes Fifties and Mc Carthyism look like child's play. Obama's continuation of Bush's policies is only the latest instance. And we all  know what goes on in China, Russia,... "non-Western"  countires.

Needless to say, extremist currents; christian: muslim: jewsih, feed this security state, so there you have a sort of a mutual relationship.

I could use a nap!

SAVAKi  agents were the one who trained and "educated" all of you, after all.

BTW hatemongering pseduo-Muslim like you are the best excuse right wingers in the west have.  

Indeed, MG. He reeks of SAVAMA and MOIS cesspool.

Mash Ghasem

Mola , the only "smell" in here emanates from you and your ilk

by Mash Ghasem on

I've having a very hard time going to sleep lately, insomnia they call it.

You're partially correct, there is some garbage  around here in IC, but wouldn't you agree most of it is from " Nameless Soldires of Imam" like yourself. SAVAK is gone but its students like you and other Nameless Soldires of Imam, are still active.

You say : "We as American/world citizens...."

A: Talk for yourself I don't have dual citizenship, ONLY IRANIAN.

B: Majority of my family consider themselves belivers.

C:" Freedom of Worship," now tha's a novel idea from the great American Revilution, wouldn't it be nice to also have that in Iran? Why is it that you never, ever say a single word about that. It would be very nice to adopt some parts of the American constitution in a future , free Iran, especially the First Amendment (BTW, Hoche Min also had the same disposition).

Only because I support progressive jews ands israelis and befriend them does not make me a lobbyist. To end on a positive note, it's not hidden from god and it shan't be hidden from you either as they say in persian. I sent the The Hava Nagila translation you posted here a while ago to friends , everyone liked it. See, even you could do some good , sometimes!

Happy March 8th,

Down with Patriarchy in any shaop  or form, christian, muslim, jewish, righty, lefty, ....

Wake up

and smell the manure all around you

on this Iranian website.

This is the 21th century now. Savak is gone, Shah is gone so is Mubarak  but you're stuck in the past.

We as American/world citizens have the 'Freedom of Worship'. Stop demonizing others because of their religion. Go and read the US constitution and stop lecturing me.

You're like the rest of those Israeli lobby members. Move to the side and let the fresh air blow.

Mash Ghasem

The only "hate mongers " here are IR agents like you , Mola

by Mash Ghasem on

Or should we call you " Nameless Soliders of Imam" as is your proper title with the Intelligence Ministry", your hate and loathing of Iranian people and their freedom movement is very much like how the SAVAK used to treat Iranian people. But then again SAVAK or SAVAMA like you, there's really no difference.

SAVAKi  agents were the one who trained and "educated" all of you, after all.

BTW hatemongering pseduo-Muslim like you are the best excuse right wingers in the west have.

Hatemongering against Muslims on IC

by Mola Nasredeen on

But who are they?

1. "Iranian hating Iranians" who have developed a sense of inferiority complex for being an Iranian and a muslim. They are alienated and need pschological help.

2. Israeli lobby on this Iranian website who've been lurking around here for a long time. FredCo where a few different people write 2 blogs a day are among this group.
