HUMAN first, then a proud IRANIAN
This blog represents the way I see some of the most significant events impacting the world and its citizens. This blog also represents how I react to the events as a member of humanity with a voice, a determined voice that insists to be heard. The voice of an Iranian who loves his country but his priority is humanity; humanity without border. I will say what I want to say, when I want to say it, and how I want to say it, but I will never lie. I will also listen; I promise.

The man who stood up to Khomeini
Mr. Montazeri died, or did he?!
He was with Khomeini during the fights against the Shah Regime. Then he became second to Khomeini after the revolution. He would be the leader of the country after the death of Khomeini if he had just kept his mouth shut and had not continued criticizing Khomeini. He did not hesitate criticizing Khomeini when necessary. The peak of his criticisms was in 1989 when hundreds of Iranian youth were being executed by Khomeini's regime every day. As a result of challenging Khomeini on that, he was disapproved by Khomeini. After the death of Khomeini, he was practically put on house arrest by Ali Khamenei's for about 20 years.
In recent years, Montazeri directly challenged the regime and was becoming a serious threat to the regime. He was the moral support for the people and their struggle against the regime.
I never thought that I would ever shed tears for a cleric, but I did today and was saddened for the loss of this man; man of dignity and high principles. I pay my sincere respect to this man and will forever remember him as a man who did not sell his dignity in exchange of being in power.

The West at the service of Israel..., Nothing new!
I am sick and tired of hearing the western countries bitching about Ahmadinejad's comments about holocaust and/or bitching about Iran's nuclear activities.
As an Iranian, like majority of Iranians, these are not my immediate concerns; not even my second degree concerns. There are many other issues that are my main concerns; Violation of human rights and Iranian regime's fight against peoples' desire for democracy in Iran are my main concerns. I don't give a damn what he says about holocaust. The Zionists keep using it so much that it has become more like "holocaust industry", so to make sure no one dares to criticize Israel. And Ahmadinejad talks about it because he knows that by using it he can distract the world's attention from more tangible issues such as Iranian peoples' struggle against the regime. But what western countries do is nothing but kissing Israel's ass, again.
Let's say, the idiot fake president of Iran stops talking about Israel and holocaust, or even decides to become friend with Israel (another criminal and internationally hated regime); Let's say, the Iranian regime decides that Iran is stopping all its nuclear activities and is going to be friend with the rest of the world. Then what? Then, I am sure most of the concerns and conflicts with the west will go away. Why? Because western leaders don't give a damn about Iranian people and their struggle with this regime.
That's why nothing should be tied to Iran's policies towards Israel, holocaust and/or Iran's nuclear activities. Otherwise, west will once again exchange integrity with its interests and Western interests are not necessarily in line with Iranian peoples' basic interests. So in short, screw the west. Let's have our own way without relying on these bastards.

This monkey is not our president! Don't deal with him!
In short, Western claim of respecting democracy is nothing but a big lie.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was officially installed today as president of Iran despite widespread evidence of fraud in his favour during the so-called presidential elections in Iran.
The world knows that he is not our president and now the question is that what the world, particularly the distrusted western leaders will do. Will they deal with him just like nothing has happened and maintain their indecent tradition of being jerks or will they at least limit their relations with him to the minimum limits that are diplomatically required?
We will see!

Airbus A300, Flight #655
Please offer a sincere apology; not to the government but to the people of Iran, for this crime that happened 21 years ago by the US navy against about 300 civilians in that flight.
As I said it before, It shall never be forgotten, but a sincere apology from an apparently decent US official would help healing of the wounds.

Killings after the green light for killings
Mr. Khamenei, She was killed following the green light for killing that you showed to your followers a day before. She, like many others, was killed because you wanted her to be killed so to save your little empire. You are no better than those Israeli fascists who have been busy doing the same for years despite your claim of being different.
One day Mr. Khamenei, you will be held accountable for this and many other perished lives such as hers. Her eyes, moments before her unwilling departure, are demanding this from us.

Iran is boiling! Beware of the foreign gifts to the regime.
The regime in Iran will not hesitate to commit any crime, any massacre of the public in order to be in power for a bit longer. There will be no limit to, to what extend they are willing to go in cracking down any voice of opposition. They are simply ruthless and will go as far as it takes regardless of the cost to people of Iran. My feeling says that they should go as fast as possible but hey, I am here in the other side of the world in Vancouver, Canada. It is easy for me to subscribe peoples' action against the regime. I'll be safe, but my people will not.
Perhaps one other option is for the regime to remain in power, but begin to fade out. This may have more gradual impact to the change, but at least fewer people will die.
Let me put it this way: If we agree that they do have their followers in the country. If we agree that, at least 5% of people are their followers. If we agree that from that 5%, 1% are true followers who act based on nothing but religious beliefs, and if we agree that when there is a question of religion, humanity takes the back seat, then we have to agree that 1% of the population: 700,000 dumb idiots will act fearlessly and will do anything to save their "religion"; anything! Even if that means killing thousands of people. Now, let's see how easy it is to kill! Imagine only one of these idiots, equipped with all kind of weapons decides to go to one of the busy parts of the city, take his weapons out and kill as many as possible. After all, he sees them all as the enemies of his religion who were not loyal to the leadership. Now, multiply this by 700,000. Too much? Ok! 500,000. No? Let’s say 50,000. Yes, they can devastate lives.
Having said this, I have to admit that we, who live in outside of the country have no right to tell the people in Iran how to deal with this regime. It will turn out that we are behind the people, by miles. Let them lead us. Let's only support what they choose to do.
It is a critical time and the regime has shown that they are very capable of using unpleasant events to their benefits. In first couple of years after the revolution, Iran was perhaps one of (If not the) most democratic countries in the world. Despite the wishes of the regime and its leaders, people kept pushing for their legitimate demands. But there was no crack down. There couldn't be. Until, Iraq (with the help and encouragement from most of the western countries) attacked Iran and the war began. That was nothing but a gift to the ever weakening regime to use the war as an excuse to crack down on peoples' rights and demands. In short, that war solidified the regime in Iran; other wise the regime would have been long gone by now (I have written about this before).
Now similar situation can do the same for the regime. There should be no doubt that religious rights, from all religions, feed each other in the time of need. This is despite their publicly opposing each other: Republicans in the US, Israeli regime and the regime in Iran. They have always helped each other (I have also written about this before). There should be no doubt that, for instance, Israel would love to see Ahmadinejad in power in Iran. This would allow Israel to put more pressure on the Obama's US to be harsher on Iran. Now, the nightmare will happen if Israel used the opportunity to attack Iran's, say, nuclear facilities. This will not kill the regime, but it will allow it to use it, just like what they did with Iraq war, to once agian consolidate their grip on power and crack down on people's rights. This is of course coupled with the unfortunate fact that such an attack can change priorities of many decent people as well and as a result, weaken the movement.
So, I am just hoping such an attack does not happen, otherwise, my country's prosperity will be once again delayed and who knows for how long. And then, I for one, will more than ever hate the criminal leaders.

Not turture? Try it on Cheney
Good for you Mr. Obama for stopping (or trying to stop) this barbaric practice, but you are wrong by calling this "a thing of the past". If there is no accountability, then this will happen again at one point or another.
Watch this interview that reveals the fact that it should not be Mr. Obama's decision how to deal with the cxrimes committed by the Bush Administration. If there is a lwa in place, then who is Mr. Obama to say no, and if there is no law in place, then is this the "land of liberty, law and order" that the US has always claimed to be?

The Bush gang should not get away with what they have done!
If President Obama doesn't want to and/or doesn't have the courage to investigate war crimes committed by the wild dogs of Bush administration, there are other people with courage and/or resolve who are trying to do Mr. Obama's job for him. Spanish prosecutor Baltasar Garzón, the crusading prosecutor who went after General Augusto Pinochet in the '90s, will likely subpoena the Dirty Half Dozen within the next few weeks. "It would have been impossible to structure a legal framework that supported what happened [in Guantánamo]" without Gonzales and his pals," argues the criminal complaint filed in Madrid.
When the six miscreants ignore their court dates (as they surely will), Spain will issue international arrest warrants enforceable in the 25 countries that are party to European extradition treaties.
Yes, I am excited about this. Not for revenge but for the sake of justice. These war criminals must be held accountable for what they have done; otherwise, there will be not much hope for one day elimination of war crimes and human rights abuses by other leaders elsewhere in the world.
