Domestic Slaughter in IranBy Amil Imani
The world's most notorious state exponent of anti-Semitism, the Islamic Republic of Iran, is on a path to and slaughter large numbers of the greatest threat to its existence, the Iranian people. The mullahs and their mercenaries are wasting precious human life in order to maintain themselves in power through terrorizing the population.
The Iranian people are simply hopeless and helpless. Even the UN does not come to their rescue. From its past performance, rather its absence of performance, we know that the UN watchdog is a true disgrace to dogs, since all it does is eat, sleep and look the other way. Furthermore, the dog has no teeth. The vet had to pull all its teeth before the dog became acceptable to the crafty cats that constitute the UN itself.
The Islamic Republic of Iran is a unique creature -- it is best described as a Theocratic Aristocracy. The "divinely-ordained" rulers maintain themselves in power by an elaborate system of patronage. Lucrative positions, contracts, and valued privileges are distributed by patronage. The result is that the ruling Mullahs enjoy a significant number of supporters in all strata of society-the civil service, the military, the powerful Revolutionary Guards, and the hooligans and thugs who are ready to unleash their vicious attacks on anyone or group that dares to challenge the in-charge men of Allah.
The illegitimate government of the Islamic Republic of Iran is a quisling entity that has betrayed its people, its tradition, its glorious pre-Islamic achievements, and is incessantly working against Iran's national interest. Iran, under the stranglehold and machinations of the Mullahs, has been transformed, in less than three decades, to the lead perpetrator of all that is abhorrent to humanity
The supreme leader of the Islamic Republic, Ali Khamenei, like his predecessor, Ayatollah Khomeini, whose callous disregard for human life was matched only by his consuming paranoia, allegedly has issued a decree to hang Iranian dissidents publicly in all the towns and villages with a population that exceeds 1000 people. For Ayatollah Khamenei, the dissident viewpoints represent an unacceptable threat. Anyone found questioning the Sharia Law -- and many hundreds of thousands were -- had to be "weeded out." The Islamic Republic is on a mission to end human life in Iran.
Mass public hanging, as well as secret executions in prisons, are routine in the tyrannical Islamic Republic of Iran. Recently Majid Kavousifar, 28, and his nephew, Hossein Kavousifar, 24, were hanged for the alleged murder of a hard-line judge, Hassan Moghaddas, who also was a deputy prosecutor and head of the "guidance" court in Tehran and notorious for jailing and condemning to death political dissidents. The victims were hanged from cranes and hoisted high above one of Tehran's busiest thoroughfares. This "judge" had repeatedly bragged publicly that he often issued a death verdict without even examining the charges against the individual. The Islamic Republic of Iran has the dubious distinction of executing more children, those under the age of 18, than any other country in the world. Such is the plight of the Iranian people.
Iran's ruling Mullahs are clustered around major factions such as the conservatives, the moderates, and the so-called reformists. Yet, the differences among these factions are tactical rather than strategic. One and all share the same overarching goal of defeating the "Crusader-Zionists" by any and all methods possible, bringing about the "end of the world" Armageddon, and thereby creating the requisite conditions for the appearance of the Hidden Imam, the Mahdi, to assume his rule of the world.
You may ask: what is the likelihood that the ruling Mullahs will actually use the bomb? If they remain in power long enough to have it, they are very likely to use it, in one form or another. At the very least, they will use the bomb for blackmail and intimidation in the region. How can you help to prevent this catastrophe from happening? Support the Iranian peoples' struggle for freedom, by at least petitioning.
[As for Majid and Hossein Kavousifar, they both left Iran for Abu Dhabi following the assassination of the murderous judge, Hassan Moghaddas, and apparently they both took refuge in the US Embassy where they had applied for US asylum. We have no information as to why they were handed over to the Islamic Republic authorities when they were aware that they would definitely be facing execution. We hope that the US State Department can give us more information.]
In order to achieve total control, the Islamic Republic and its lackeys spawned a series of immense internal purges -- beginning in 1988 and known as the "Massacre of Political Prisoners of 1988"-- and have intensified their domestic terror in recent months and weeks.
A society that is intense in its struggle for change has a flip side to its idealism: intolerance. This totalitarian regime sees enemies everywhere, enemies who want to destroy the Islamic Revolution and diminish the results of its hard work of creating an Islamic utopia in the land of Cyrus the Great.
The regime seems to be panicking with hyper-suspiciousness. They have installed watchdogs in schools, universities, factories and all offices across the country, and are urged to be vigilant against sabotage, against those who crave freedom and democracy. Many innocent Iranians are being victimized, and the saying has gone around that "when you chop wood, the chips fly." As with Khamenei, it was believed that some who were innocent would have to be victimized if all of the guilty were to be apprehended.
In fact, they stigmatize, victimize and murder people without any due process of law. On the slightest suspicion, they arrest, convict and execute. Few people would deny any longer that Islam and its variants mean, in practice, bloody terrorism, deadly purges, lethal actions, forced hijabs, fatal deportations, extrajudicial executions, show trials, and genocide. It is a widespread plague upon humanity, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people.
Today, the Islamic Republic of Iran is one of the greatest threats to the stability of the civilized world and humanity at large. It continues to impose this horrendous ideology called Islam on the Iranian population.
The world must file legal charges against the leaders of the Islamic Republic's wanton violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: for their crimes against humanity and genocidal actions against religious and political groups; for support of international terrorism; for demolition of religious sites and cemeteries; for rape, torture, and summary executions of prisoners of conscience; for forgery of documents; for acts of blackmail and fraud; and for much more.
To those misguided advocates of negotiation with the mullahs, beware. The mullahs are on an Allah-mandated mission. They are intoxicated with petrodollars and aim to settle for nothing less than complete domination of the world under the Islamic Ummah. It is precisely for this reason that they consider America and the West as "Ofooli," setting-dying system, while they believe their Islamism is "Tolooi," rising-living order. They are in no mood to negotiate for anything less than the total surrender of democracy, the very anathema to Islamism. This is only one reason, but perhaps, one of the greatest reasons, for fostering democracy.
