As of late I have been receiving numerous insulting, threatening comments on my blog which I have refused to publish. The jist of it is that people are not happy with me writing about Ahmad Batebi or “Human Rights Activists in Iran”.
It is very interesting to me that people who claim they are fighting for freedom and democracy are so quick to threaten, insult and try to silence any critical voice. To this day I have not insulted or threatened anyone, whatever I have said, it has been based on solid proof and has always been in a question form. Because of this I will stand by everything I have said to the very end.
Now the reality is, in the fight against the Regime Ahmad Batebi and his human rights organization is an insignificant and tiny little spec. The only reason I have written about them is due to my concern for the safety of individuals in Iran, who are in touch with this group not realizing the danger they are in.
However in the past few months I strongly believe that I have achieved this goal as many people who were affiliated with this organization have left (especially those in Iran). Many prisoners have also boycotted this group which has forced “Human Rights Activists in Iran” to copy news from other websites and put it in their own words, in order to convey that they still have contacts in Iran.
It is also true that number of people affiliated with this group have been arrested, could it be because the executives of the group recorded their voices and handed it over to authorities? In any event “Human Rights Activists in Iran” along with Ahmad Batebi have lost a great deal of credibility in the past few months. I do not want to waste my time dealing with these individuals because their credibility has already been shattered and I think people in Iran are very much aware of what they are dealing with.
The more I think about it, the more I come to the conclusion that the Regime chooses its own opposition. There is a very good reason why uneducated bullies such as Ahmad Batebi (and the few others who shall remain nameless) became the symbol of the student movement. The Regime wanted the outside world to see these individuals as representatives of the students in Iran, what better way to discredit the entire student movement, then to have uneducated individuals with no substance who were not even students be the representatives of the movement?
When I look at the list of so called famous student Ahmad Batebi, Kianoosh Sanjari, to a lesser degree Hassan Ardeshir Zarazadeh, Keyvan Rafiee, do any of these individuals have a degree above a high school diploma? (if that?) There are actual students who are very active in the student movement in Iran, many whose names we don’t know because the Regime doesn’t want us to, and while Mr. Batebi is writing about how much he loves Kallepache, it is these individuals in Iran that are fighting the real fight.
In conclusion, I am open to discussion and debate, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, in a public forum, where people are present and can make their own decision. Just a note, thanks to advance technology I know exactly who is leaving these comments on my blog and if it continues I will post the individuals name along with his IP address and all his comments. (Just a little heads up)
With that said I hope to close the chapter on these insignificant, so called “student leaders” whose “political careers” are coming to an end...The real fight awaits...
