Iranians are the proud spiritual descendants of King Cyrus the Great, the author of the first Charter of Human Rights. Some of Cyrus’ children live in a patch of land called Iran. The overwhelming majority—free humans with human beliefs—live in every country, city, and village on the earth. These worldwide people, one and all, irrespective of nationality, color, or creed, are Iranians because they all adhere to the Cyrus Charter; they practice and defend its lofty tenets; and transfer this precious humanity’s treasure to the next generation.
Fact. Muhammad died and did not leave a written will (he was illiterate, that’s understandable). So, his high-ranking disciples began scheming for leadership. The Shi’as claim that Muhammad verbally indicated that Ali was to lead his Ummah. Well, 90% of the Muslims say he did not, and the Caliphate system was the way to go.
Fact. Shortly after Muhammad’s death, Ali was killed by some disgruntled Muslim for whatever reason. Violence was part and parcel of Islam from the word go.
Then there was a battle between Yazid’s forces and Hussein. Wasn’t there? Hussein and his band of relatives-followers got butchered. Well, friends, that’s the nature of the beast called war.
To this day, Shia’s bloody themselves, their children, and even their babies with self-flagellation in a horrid way in “aza dari” (mourning) for what happened to Hussein. What good does this do other than perpetuate a sense of defeatism and fanaticism that mitigates against Iranians freeing themselves from the yoke of the conniving mullahs?
The long-suffering Iranian people must put the past behind them and use their excellent talents to join and lead the advanced world. What a shame to remain stuck in this horrid mentality of victimization. Iranians deserve better than being manipulated by many mullahs who have been having a great ride on the back of the ignorant poor.
Forget the afterlife and pay attention to the plight of the suffering masses. Stop playing politics with the lives of the people. Those responsible for this sham have no heart and no shame. Let the bygones be bygones and use the tremendous human potential of Iranians to provide them with opportunities to better themselves and their families.
In most other lands conquered by Islam, the conquered peoples have lost their own identity and heritage and embraced the ways of their new rulers under an “Arab” identity. Conversely, in Iran, a band of indigenous victims, “infected” by Islam, have mindlessly turned on their Iranian countrymen and tried to rob them of their remaining ancient heritage. It is precisely this savage minority that has established an oppressive, tyrannical rule and wields power against the Iranian people. Yet, even under the rule of the Mullahs, most Iranians of various ethnicities and religions remain faithful to their ancient creed – a creed given to the world by Zoroaster.
The most crucial step in the direction of emancipation of our people is establishing the rule of law — not barbaric sharia — to grant all Iranians, male and female, young and old, of all beliefs equal rights.
We, the Persians, have no dog in this long-dead Islamic fight. Let’s look forward and do something about the sorry plight of our people today so that future generations recall this generation of Iranians as trailblazers who dared to break from the tragic past and launch a bright future.
As far as Western Civilization is concerned, they have been appeasing these packs of wolves. Appeasement inevitably emboldens aggressors. The wanton Islamic Republic of Iran has been on a murder and mayhem path for decades, encouraged by an appeasing world.
Just a few reminders. The murderous villains took the life of several thousand Americans during the Iraq conflict without being punished for it. Not long ago, they downed an American drone in international air space without even getting a slap on their long blood-stained wrist.
Then, they started piracy in the Persian Gulf. Nothing happened. The murdering arsonists are on an ever-escalating path of death and destruction to achieve their deadly objective of ruling the region and destroying Israel.
Looking the other way and appeasing aggression will inevitably bring about more significant pain. When the aggressor is even provided with a hundred and fifty billion dollars, as Obama did, it is no surprise that the empowered Mullahs are continuing their rampage.
Continue appeasing? Wait until they get their bloody hands on their long-cherished ultimate weapon. To state an overused cliché: keep kicking the can down the road, as both George Bush and Obama did, and let someone else worry about it.
Well, that someone else now is Mr. Biden. Will he follow suit or do the painful thing his predecessors had eschewed? We already know the answer…
