Islamic Republic murders young Iranian blogger on the eve of the Iranian New Year (Norooz)
Norooz, the Iranian New Year, is a time to be around family and rejoice the rebirth of natural life. Unfortunately this has not been an easy task for Iranians who have been living under a brutal foreign Islamic occupation since 30 years back. The Islamic Republic, since its inception in 1979 has mercilessly imprisoned, tortured, and killed Iranians who have dared stand up against their dictatorship. It was therefore of no surprise when Iranians today received news of the death of 28 year old CULTURAL blogger Omidreza Mirsayafi, who had been imprisoned in the notorious Evin prison for some time. Nor is it surprising that Omid's activities which were limited to a cultural audience, rather than a political one, being the instigating factor for the Islamic Republic to kill this young compatriot of ours. Cultural activities are seen by the terrorist Islamic Republic just as dangerous, especially to a regime that is founded on primitive and savage Islamic values that glorify death and mourning and when the other party is promoting and/or upholding values which are far superior than their lowly concept of culture in the primitive Islamic sense. Iranian culture as I have pointed out on several occasions throughout my posts is in stark contrast to that of Islamic culture. Iranian culture is one which values life and happiness, or summarized in the ancient Iranian philosophy of Zoroastrianism as consisting of three tenets: Good Thoughts, Good Words, and Good Deeds. Clearly these are in stark contrast to so-called "Islamic culture" which glorifies death, promotes hatred, and seeks to impose itself on others through violence.
Omid was not the first victim but rather one in tens of thousands of victims that have lost their lives at the hands of this evil, tyrannical, anti-Iranian regime. Nor will he be the last if the shameful indifference and submission which the large part of the Iranian population have adopted throughout these devastating past 30 years. This barbaric regime will not be defeated simply by verbal opposition amongst ourselves in the comfort of our homes. Concrete steps and action by Iranians is what will defeat this evil regime and put an end to the indiscriminate killings of innocent lives, young and old, that has been ongoing for 30 years. We cannot let this shameful indifference and short term strategy of survival lead to more of our compatriots being killed and our countries wealth being looted by these thieves and murderers.
Our pride and dignity, and the right of future generations to live in a free, democratic, and safe society should not be compromised. Sacrifices need to be made in order to free our nation and take it to the level it deserves amongst the community of civilized nations.
I extend my heart-felt condolences to the family of Omid, whose Norooz (Iranian New Year) tomorrow will be spent without their son, brother... I hope that this occupational Islamic Republic which has killed tens of thousands of our freedomloving and noble compatriots will soon be brought to justice.
