Tehran University - Student Demonstration

On Sunday up to 1500 Iranian students from Tehran University staged a demonstration against the occupational Islamic Republic.
The students broke through the university gates, that the Islamist security forces had sealed, inviting ordinary people to join their demonstration.
Chants that were heard included: "Death to the Dictator!", "Referendum is our right!", "Referendum is what the nation wants!", "Political prisoners must be freed!".

The students movement is alive and will remain so until the day this savage Islamic Republic is overthrown and a democratic referendum is held to determine the future of the nation. More power to the students movement and all democratic forces that oppose the terrorist Islamic Republic.

Iranian child prisoner on death row's artwork

On Sunday, December 09, 2007, Reza Alinejad's older brother, Ali, contacted human rights lawyer, Lily Mazahery, via email and included photos of four pieces of artwork that Reza has produced from prison. In these pieces, Reza conveys his pain as a child prisoner on death row, and questions the justice system that has condemned him to death for accidentally killing a man in self-defense.

In December 2002, when Reza was only 17 years old, he and his friend were physically attacked -- without provocation ¡V by a group of men, one of whom was carrying deadly weapons. The boys were severely beaten and injured by their attackers. In an attempt to fend off his attackers and protect himself and his friend, Reza pulled out a pocket knife, and tried to ward off the attackers. As Reza struggled with his attackers in this manner, he accidentally stabbed one of them with the knife, ultimately resulting in the man's death.

Despite testimony from eyewitnesses stating that Reza was acting in self defense and that the stabbing was purely accidental, a judge in Iran's Fars province found the teenager guilty of murder, and sentenced him to death by hanging.

However, the court's ruling is in violation of international laws and standards, including the Covenant on the Right of the Child (CRC), to which the Islamic Republic of Iran is a signatory. The CRC expressly prohibits the execution of individuals for acts or crimes committed before the age of majority. Because the IRI has accepted to abide by the governing international rules and treaties, it is prohibited from sentencing Reza to death for acting in self-defense when he was only 17 years old.

With the assistance of Reza's family, and Mohamad Mostafaei, one of the attorneys representing Reza in Iran, human rights lawyer, Lily Mazahery, initiated an international campaign to save Reza from execution. The campaign includes an internet-based petition that demands commutation of Reza's sentence and describes the circumstances of the case.

Last week, in a separate email to Ms. Mazahery, the Alinejad family announced that Iran's head of judiciary, Ayatollah Shahroudi, has ordered mediation between the Alinejad family and that of the decedent. If the decedent's family agrees to accept a certain sum of "blood money" (Diyeh) from the Alinejads, Reza will be able to escape execution and will return to his family to begin a new life away from the horrors of prison.

Additional information about Reza Alinejad may be found on a website set up by Reza's family and friends:

Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi of Iran's message on Human Rights Day

Reza Pahlavi Of Iran’s Message On The Occasion Of 60th Anniversary Of The Universal Declaration Of Human Rights
Sunday, December 9th, 2007

Dear compatriots,

Today on Human Rights Day and on the eve of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the United Nations prepares to launch a year-long programme of activities to celebrate the signing of this historic document, every principle of this Declaration is being trampled upon in our homeland.

It is ironic that while the moral and intellectual heritage of our nation was one of the major inspirations behind the genesis of human rights, Iranian citizens remain deprived and disinherited from their most basic freedoms.

Today Amnesty International and other monitoring organizations put Iran close to the top of their list of countries violating human rights. For the past twenty-eight years, no segment of Iranian society has been immune to abuses. Women, youth, workers, journalists, dissenting clerics, farmers, academics, religious and ethnic minorities have all at one time or another been target of flagrant violations.

The rulers of the Islamic Republic have done their utmost to distort the noble image of our country and present our people as promoters of terrorism, intolerance and hatred. They have sacrificed the individual rights of Iranian citizens at the altar of a fanatical ideology and for the preservation of their illegitimate hold on political power.

It is very clear to me that our nation will soon free itself from its present nightmare and claim its true heritage as a stronghold of human rights and defender of dignity and freedom. Giving my full support to the United Nations activities in the promotion of human rights, I call upon all my compatriots as well as the international community to stand together and oppose all manner of human rights violations against Iranian citizens perpetrated by the clerical dictatorship.

May God Bless Iran.

Reza Pahlavi

Forever Persian Gulf

The President of the Terrorist Islamic Republic - Mahmoud AhmadiNejad attending a meeting of Arab states.

The banner circled above is an arabic text that reads: "majlis al taavon al khalij al arabia" which translates into "meeting of Arab gulf states"! Now where on earth this Arab gulf exists is anyones guess! The only gulf which separates Iran and the Arab states is the Persian Gulf.
Before these motherless creatures like Mahmoud AhmadiNejad and his ilk hijacked our country (Iran) in 1979, the Imperial Government of Iran, and in particular His Imperial Majesty the late Shah of Iran, made sure that nobody disrespected the name of this historical body of water and that if they did harsh consequences would follow; in fact I've read that the late Shah imposed a trade embargo on an(y) Arab state whose shipping containers were marked "Arab gulf" and did not lift it before this fictitious name was removed.

Today the name of our country, thanks to occupational Islamic Republic and its cronies, has been reduced to being associated with terrorism and extremism, our maritime territorial claims in the Caspian Sea are about to be surrendered to the Russians in return for completion of the Bushehr nuclear power plant, and Arab states feel free to go against any legal conventions by misrepresenting the historical and long-standing name of the Persian Gulf. Of course this is but a miniscule fraction of how the Islamic Republic has been successful in reducing Iran's dignity, pride, and culture. To further prove their anti-Iranian heritage, leaders in the occupational Islamic Republic (Khomeini, Bazargan, Khalkhali) even tried to change the name of the Persian Gulf to "Islamic Gulf" - but just as their efforts to ban Iran's ancient New Year, demolish our ancient capital Persepolis, and Islamize society failed so did this futile attempt.

I hope that Iranians can mobilize themselves to shed themselves of these terrorists that are occupying their country and that the dignified name of Iran is restored in the international community.

I'd like to bring the attention of my compatriots to the first part of this interview with the late Shah, where His Imperial Majesty proudly defends the name of the Persian Gulf unlike the non-Iranian/anti-Iranians that have occupied Iran from 1979 till today, and who without shame go sit under such banners with a smirk on their faces!

And a music video by Iranian singer "Ebi" dedicated to the Persian Gulf:

Iranian woman being arrested by Muslim mercenaries

Video showing how chador-clad Muslim's arrest an Iranian girl on the grounds of "violating the imposed Islamic dress code". The notorious state organization that these criminal Muslim women belong to is the "Zeinab Sisters Brigade" which is a terrorist female-only-organization concerned with up-keeping Islamic value and whose primary target is Iranian women who dare to resist in what may seem the most insignificant gestures (such as pulling their headscarfs back slightly more revealing part of their hair or wearing tight overcoats etc). The Muslim women that are members of this organization are referred to by Iranians as "Fati Kommando's" which translated into english reads "Commando's of Fatameh" - Fatameh is the daughter of the Arabo-Muslim Prophet Mohammed whose backwardnesses, violent, and savage behaviour seems to have rubbed off on his offspring. There are many derogatory terms that Iranians use to label these creatures - apart from "Fati Komando's" there is also "Khaharane Zeinab" ( = Sisters of Zeinab) that is commonly used.

In this video the young Iranian lady asks the chador-clad (the black cloth that Muslim women wear) Muslim's who have surrounded her to show their ID badges so that they can be identified. The Muslim women ignore the request and tell her to be quiet and get in the car. At this point the Iranian woman begins to scream and plead to the crowd that has gathered to help her - however struck by the fear that the occupational Islamic Republic and its mercenary forces have instilled in the minds of Iranians the crowd feels helpless; all you can hear are whispers to "let her be", "let her go". This has not been the case in other recent cases where the crowd has actually intervened to save a young woman's life. The woman is eventually thrown into a police car by force. The car swiftly leaves the scene. These kind of abductions of Iranian women takes place daily by the occupational Islamic Republic.

Please spread and distribute this video-clip to wider audiences for them to witness what these savages are doing to the Iranian population resisting Islamic domination. The days of Islam, its adherents, and offspring are numbered in Iran. Iran will only be able to prosper once this historical misfortune that was imposed on our nation (Islam) is completely uprooted and disposed of into the waste bin of history.

More power to the Iranian people resisting this 2nd Arabo-Muslim Occupation in the history of Iranian nationhood.
