31 March 2010...

Potkin has a powerful clip showing the strengthening societal consciousness within islamist-occupied Iran (two girls are attacked by one of the regime's islamist guards and tens of bystanders intervene and chase the regime thug away). The regime's stronghold on society through fear and repression is slowly crumbling through the show of force and courage of ordinary people.

Also a "pic of the day" (NYPD officers holds the Iranian flag during the annual New York Persian Parade):

Na mollah! Na allah! Marg bar Hezbollah!

I just came across this new protest chant against the anti-Iranian Islamic Republic:

Na mollah! Na allah! Marg bar Hezbollah!
(no mullah's, no allah, death to hezbollah)

A few nice clips I wanted to share with my blog readers:

In defence of Caspian Makan

by Observing_Iran

The Jerusalem Post has reported that Caspian Makan, the fiance of Neda Agha Soltan has been to Israel and has spoken with the Israeli President, Shimon Peres. Since then there's been a lot of complaints, anger and outright disgust at Mr Makan's actions, sadly most of it from the so-called "reformist" Green Movement.

Mr Makan, having been tortured in Iran after the murder of his fiance, fled and went to Canada. Since then he has done a lot of good work in trying to keep the focus on the situation in Iran and the what's been going on since June 2009. He arrived in Israel last week and was quoted as saying "I come to Israel as an ambassador of the Iranian people, a messenger from the camp of peace" and "I have no doubt that Neda's spirit and soul feels the sensitivity and warmth I received in this meeting". President Peres in turn replied by saying “you can murder a person, but not a spirit. One candle can scatter a lot of darkness. And this candle will not be extinguished. In this struggle, I am sure that the progressive and moral Iran will emerge victorious.”

Every Islamic Republic passport bears the statement, "the bearer of this passport is forbidden from traveling to occupied Palestine" i.e. Israel. By visiting Israel Makan has essentially given two fingers to the regime. But what's happened since the meeting has been very telling and of great interest to me:

Now, here's what I think:

The charge that Makan was not Neda's fiance is patent nonsense, and Neda's mother herself has confirmed that they were in a relationship and planning to get married. Then again, it doesn't surprise me that a website aligned to Mir Hossein Mousavi and his "Green Movement" would be hostile to anyone who has the temerity to visit the Israel, let us not forget that Mousavi himself was Prime Minister of Iran whilst the IRGC was actively helping the Hezbollah Islamic Fundamentalists in their war against Israel and was involved in the bombing of the US Embassy in Lebanon. If that isn't enough proof for you, there's also the fact that he called Israel a cancerous tumour, whilst in office. It therefore doesn't come as much of a surprise that Islamic Republic "reformists", still loyal to the theocratic system, would attack Makan.

The other charge is that by visiting Israel, Makan is harming the "opposition" movement, and giving ammunition to those that claim that Iran's protesters are all Americanised lackeys. Given that for quite some time Iranians have been shouting, "Not for Palestine, not for Lebanon, only for Iran do I give my life", we can see that a lot of Iranians are not the raving anti-Zionists that Ahmadinejad would have you believe. Iranians have a lot of problems to deal with in Iran, hating on Israel is really quite low down on the list of priorities at the moment. In addition, the Islamic Republic already blames the current unrest on foreign powers, so whether or not Makan makes a visit to Israel, the Iranian opposition will still be accused of being foreign stooges. It's an entirely illogical point for the Green movement's media to make.

Anyway, if the Iranian opposition movement is so weak and Ahmadinejad-esque that it feels "harmed" by someone going on a goodwill visit to the Middle East's only democracy, then it's a rotten, bigoted opposition movement anyway and not one I have any interest in supporting as it's on the same level as Ahmadinejad and his vile rhetoric. Where is Rahe Sabz's outrage at the Turkish Prime Minister's recent visit to Iran, after he denied the Armenian genocide? Rahe Sabz don't give a fig about the Palestinian people's rights, they're just toeing the Islamic Republic's anti-Semitic line.

At least PressTV maintain a consistent line, they've always been thuggish anti-Semites, however when the self proclaimed free thinkers of the Green movement round on a man and assasinate his character simply for going against what the Islamic Republic's fanatical supporters believe in, I believe that is wrong and just the sort of hypocrisy which makes me view the Green Movement's leaders and media with distaste.

I myself have no problem with Makan visiting Israel, any message of peace and goodwill is long overdue in my opinion. The Islamic Republic for thirty years has engaged in terrorism and hatred, and much worse has declared that it has done so in the name of Iran's people, who by and large are not the intolerant fanatics that the regime paints them out to be. Caspian Makan is simply shouting "this is not in my name". I for one support him.

1389 - Taazi Year - Norooz

What do those Iranians who use the Taazi (Arabo-Muslim) year of 1389 indirectly promote? That they are proud of:

1389 years of being slaves to a backward, savage, anti-Iranian ideology imposed by the swords of savage Arab invaders

1389 years of being raped by Arabo-Muslims

1389 years in which our children have been sold as sex-slaves to Arabo-Muslims

1389 years since our freedom fighting national heroes, in their last defence for their motherland, where slain and beheaded by the savage Arabo-Muslim hordes

1389 years since the Arabo-Muslim hordes burned, pillaged, and raped our nation

1389 years of a pedophile, thief, rapist, murderer being idolized as a prophet sent by God!

Shame on those who regurgitate this shameful Islamic year instead of using proper Iranian reference points for their cultural new year! Iranian history goes back thousands of years, yet some Iranians shamelessly adopt this shameful Islamic year as their "new year" reference! It cannot get more illogical, sick and twisted than this - it's as if on the same day your father is murdered, mother is raped, siblings sold as sex-slaves, and your house pillaged and burned to the ground by savages and you decide to commemorate and celebrate that date as the reference point for your cultural new year!!! This is how deep Islamic brainwashing is ingrained in the psyche of some Iranians - even the "secular/modern/westernized" ones living in progressive western countries who can freely educate themselves regarding these issues!

Three suggested Iranian years that should be promoted and used are: 7032 (Mitrai Aryan year); 3748 (Zoroastrian year); 2569 (Shahanshahi year). Personally I prefer to use the Shahanshahi year - 2569 - as this the reference point for the formation of the Persian Empire (Iran) as a unified state with defined borders by Cyrus the Great.
