Iranian Declaration of Independence form Theocracy, Monarchy, and All kinds of Tyranny
[In Memory of “Declaration of Independence” wrote by Thomas Jefferson and confirmed by Congress in July 4, 1776. In fact, we change this historical document a little, for Iran and Iranians]
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are born equal, that they have certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, having its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Theocracy and Monarch; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present Velayat-e Faqih, and of course the past Shah, is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over Iran/Persia. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
The dictator (Mullah, Shah, etc) has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. He has forbidden his President, Parliament, and Guardian Council to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, has utterly neglected to attend to them. He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. He has been responsible for many electoral frauds, and also a widespread electoral fraud in Presidential Election that hold on June 12, 2009. He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers. He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies [Sepah and Basij] without the Consent of our people. He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to the Civil Power. He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their acts of pretended legislation.
For quartering large bodies of armed troops [Sepah and Basij] among us :
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from Punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these cities in Iran:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world :
For imposing religious laws on us without our Consent :
For depriving us in all cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury :
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offenses:
For abolishing the free System of Civil Laws in our country, establishing an Arbitrary government, and imposing the Primitive System of Islamic Laws
For taking away our Civil Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally, the Forms of the Modern Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with Power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever:
The dictator has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Islamic Mercy! and waging War against us. He has plundered our seas and our oil, ravaged our Coasts and natural resource, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. He is at this time transporting large armies of domestic and foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. He has tortured our fellow Citizen taken captive on the street, home, news agency, opposition political party office, and etc. just for protesting to his illegal acts. He has killed our fellow Citizen, innocent men and women on the streets, just for using of their civil rights and civil protest. He has endeavored to bring on our frontiers, War and Hostility. In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Mullah, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connection and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends. We, therefore, do, in the name of the good People of Iran, solemnly publish and declare, That our country is, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent State; that is Absolved from all Allegiance to the Mullahs, and the Monarchists and their British and American Masters
