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.

I shall never forget!

20 years ago on July 3rd, the US navy warship, USS Vincenne fired a missile and shot down an Iranian Passenger airplane which was on its routine corridor from Iran to United Arab Emarats over the waters of the Persian Gulf killing all the 298 civilian passengers, many of whom children. As I said last year and years before that, I shall never forget that day and I shall never forget the scenes of collecting the shattered and scattered bodies of the children from water. Beautiful blue Persian Gulf turned red that day.

Every year in the anniversary of bombing of Pan Am 103 in December, western media rightfully repeats the stories of the shattered lives and hopes of those innocent mostly Americans who were perished by the bombing, but in the anniversary of downing of the Iranian airliner by the state terrorism of the United States, they choose a deadly silence that is rooted in their racism and double standards. The double standard that continues rotting the professionalism and ethics they are supposed to have but always fail to.
