Reza Fazeli

Reza Fazeli passed away today after having struggled with an illness for some time.

Mr Fazeli was the target of an assasination attempt by the Islamic Republic occupying Iran in the late 80's/early 90's. Mr Fazeli survived the assasination attempt however his son who was with him during the attack died from the injuries he had sustained. Having buried both his son and later on his daughter, these events only lead to Mr Fazeli's convictions being further strengthend and kept him going stronger than before - his main message which he conveyed through his television programmes/documentaries was to teach Iranians to use their own brains and think for themselves rather than following others like sheep. Mr Fazeli was a vocal educator on Islam to a population who for 1400 years have been indoctrinated never to question or second-guess this backward ideology and furthermore brainwashed with lies and exaggerations about Islam. Along other notable individuals who have mustered the courage to stand up and speak up against the taboo topic of Islam, Mr Fazeli helped educate many Iranians in regards to the backward and downright anti-human/anti-Iranian teachings of the Arab ideology of Islam. His service to the Iranian nation will not be forgotten and his presence will be direly missed.

This is a very sad time for Iranians across the world. We have lost one of the most courageous men of our times. Mr. Fazeli was a force to be reckoned with in the eyes of the Islamic Republic, simply because he had the gumption to speak the truth and expose their fallacies. Long live his memory and may future generations learn a thing or two from his lifelong dedication to achieving democracy and freedom for his compatriots.

A great Iranian, he will be dearly missed. Reza Fazeli would be very happy if each Iranian would read more books and decide one by one between truth and lies.

he was a watan parast. how ever and what ever he said was coming from his heart. in my oppinion he was not highly educated! But what he does and what he said was enough for a person like him. The other artist like him are still hiding themselves, becaused of fear of surviving! HE WILL SURVIVE.
This is what make him special.
