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.
