1. My Thoughts on Ahmadinejad
I find that the international community and even many Iranians are giving way too much credit to Ahmadinejad. One look at the Islamic Regime’s Constitution makes it clear that the power of the President is very limited. In fact that was the excuse Khatami the so called “reformist”president used for eight (8) years during his presidency.
I think while the international community is busy creating a monster out of a little man called Ahmadinejad its losing sight of the real danger and the real monster which is the ISLAMIC REGIME.
Even if Ahmadinejad was removed from power today nothing would change, because the Islamic Regime, the underlying system behind this little man would still be in place and in power.
2. Canada Walking out on Ahmadinejad’s Speech at the UN
I have always been a big supporter of Stephan Harper and I am proud that he decided Canadian delegates would walk out of Ahmadinejad’s speech, I wonder if the Liberal Government was in power they would have done the same...
At the same time I wonder why the Canadian Government refused to take serious action in the case of Zahra Kazemi even when opportunity presented itself. Please find here an article written by Michael Petrou from the Mcleans which certainly leaves some question marks in the readers mind...
3.What bothers me is not so much Reform but Reform in Disguise!
Recently I’ve been writing about people like Mr. Jahanbegloo and Mr. Akhavan and their reformist ideologies. This being a free country we all have the right to freedom of thought and expression. What really bothers me is not so much these people’s beliefs, as it is the fact that they are so adamant in disguising their intentions. To be a reformist, to admit to it is one thing, but to pretend to be pro-democracy and then to advocate pro-reform ideologies on the sly is a whole other story...
4. Celebrities and Reform
Recently a friend of mine sent me a video of Shohre Aghdashlou who was speaking about the human rights of Bahai’s in Iran. This is very admirable, however the problem is, no amount of talking about human rights alone will change anything, as long as the Islamic Regime in Iran is in power the rights of Bahai’s, Kurds, Turks, women, students, journalist etc.. will be violated on a systematic basis.
What puzzles me is why people like Ms. Aghdashloo who are internationally known and have a huge fan base choose to only talk about human rights, rather than talking about Regime Change. One obvious answer is Regime change is not fashionable, certainly not as fashionable as it is being green. Also being against the Regime means never being able to go back to Iran, at least until there is a Regime change. This is a chance not many people are willing to take.
5. My favourite Picture of the Week
Last but not least this is a picture of members of Worker Communist Party of Iran burning an Islamic Regime Flag during the New York. Good job guys, it’s always a pleasure seeing that disgusting non-Iranian Flag burn to ashes.
Down with the Islamic Regime in Iran
Long Live Freedom in Iran
