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 biggest taboo of the "western freedom of speech"
Getting back to Holocaust, I have already made it clear where I stand with regards to Holocaust and that I do believe the horrors of Holocaust were real and those who deny them are nothing but fools. I also believe the fact that we, collectively allowed that to happen and that it will forever be a source of shame for human kind. However, it is important to realize that the occurrence of the Holocaust has been exploited to the point that even some people including a Jewish author call it The Holocaust Industry. Having said that, I have to add that IF I did not believe that Holocaust had actually happened, I would speak my mind if I wanted to and I would not let anybody to limit my freedom of speech. Holocaust is a historical event and some might believe or wish, for any reason; even stupid reasons, to deny its occurrence. So what? Why shouldn't they say what they think? The horrible reality of the reaction to the denial of the Holocaust is not to write books or make speeches to counter the denial of Holocaust, but it is, in some countries to send people to jail for expressing their views on an historical event. I cannot think of anything in the western world that is as big a taboo as the denial of the Holocaust is. Why? May be I can't see the logic on this. But I cannot accept, or agree with, forcing people to self-censor. Or is it because Israel has that much power and influence on the western governments that it can force its will to these governments to the point that no one should dare to upset Israel? Any idea!?

Kiss my a** Missy
In fact, the partially criminal and partially stupid policies of the US with its current mad men and women in charge, have done nothing but providing the ground for the rise of fundamentalism around the world. Really, does this idiot Missy really think that the world's public opinion gives a sh*t about what she or her stupid boss thinks? As a matter of fact, the more they shut up, the better they will be "serving" the spread of democracy around the world.

Is Harper's first broken promise coming on the first day in power?
One of the main campaign promises of Canada's Prime Minister-designate, Stephen Harper was to lower the GST from 7 to 6 percent right away after forming the government (and lower by one more percentage point within five years). Regardless of the fact that the GST cut would only benefit those with high disposable income, I am not even sure if Harper can keep his promise. After all, as far as I know, the existence of the GST is a law and in order to change that law, it needs to be revisited in and by the parliament (which is not even known when it will begin working) and after all the debates, if the modification attracts majority of votes, it can become the new law.
Harper should have and must have known the parliamentary procedures when he was making that promise. If my understanding of the procedure is accurate, then the question is that is Harper incompetent for not knowing about this or was he simply lying to the voters while he knew he wouldn't be able to deliver on his promise, at least the way it was outlined in his election campaign!
Now, let's see how he is going to deal with this issue and his possible broken promise.
