The tragedy of Internet in Iran

September 28, 2011

In the recent days, the Internet speed in Iran has decreased dramatically. Apparently the Mullahs try to test the new features of their new filtering system again. As we said before, Iran not only has the slowest internet speed in the world, but Iran has the most expensive internet in the world, too . It’s the Mullah miracle that Iranians should pay the highest price for an internet connection, while this shitty connection has the slowest speed in the world !! Last year, some American media said: “the fastest state in the US is Rhode Island at an average of 894 KBps, which was almost three times faster than the slowest state, Alaska, which had a dismal 318KBps”. But in Iran, and in the normal conditions, the fastest city is Tehran at an average of 28KBps !!, which was almost two times faster than the slowest cities, which had a dismal 15KBps !And now, the average internet speed in Tehran has become 10KBps ! But Iranians should pay about $50/Mbsp (Megabit per second) for this f-u-c-k-ing internet connection, while according to NetIndex, Americans pay about $5/Mbsp and Canadians pay about $6/Mbsp for their internet connections !! But it’s not the whole story. The internet in Iran is the most dangerous internet of the world, and the Mullah surveillance and censorship, is really the number one in the world. As we said before, Iran is the least free country of the world, and the global assessments of Internet and digital media show that Iran has the number one Orwellian Society in the world . The Mullahs deliberately slow down the internet speed, because they want to monitor more connections and more people


Apparently in these day the Mullahs try to test their new filtering system in the main cities of Iran, including Tehran, Esfahan, Shiraz, Tabriz, etc. In these days, even you can not download a simple webpage in Iran !! Some years ago, Iranians said: “It becomes extremely annoying, especially when you want to download or upload a photo. Downloading video takes ages. And almost always it’s simply impossible to open and watch a video on the Internet”. But now even you can not load a simple webpage, and it takes ages to read a simple news website ! Many say: “The Mullahs deliberately keep the Internet speed low in order to frustrate people from surfing the web, downloading and uploading photos/video/documents/etc, and reducing the amount of information they can access”. It’s really true, but it’s not the whole story. The Mullahs clearly have said the high-speed Internet would create security problems for them ! In fact, the low Internet speed has become a tool to keep the net restricted, it has become a tool to censor the Internet and monitor the users’ activities directly and openly. Now, the Internet speed in Iran is slower than the turtle speed.


Some ask: “What’s causing the slow-down? What’s causing the Orwellian surveillance?” The answer is very clear. It’s the Western-developed technology that allows the Mullahs to analyze networks of information: who is transmitting, what exactly they are saying, and who is consuming it . In fact, ” The Mullah’s Internet Snooping is Made in America”. As we said before, The Mullahs use Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), a technology developed and sold to the Mullahs by a joint venture of Siemens and Nokia . Some say: “Deep packet inspection and similar techniques being used in Iran are also being employed aggressively by the US government, ostensibly in its search for terrorists online. And now they have sold their technology to the Mullahs. The US National Security Agency (NSA) is snooping on all US Web and email traffic and storing it. For example, a technician, Mark Klein, has testified in court that the hardware made copies of the website preferences and email traffic of all AT&T customers and sent them to the NSA. Now, the American jerks have sold their technology to the Mullahs.” Unfortunately, the world has closed its eyes on our dreadful conditions in Iran. But public opinion should see how the Mullahs impose such a dreadful conditions on us, and how the western politicians support the Mullahs and sell their suppressive technologies to the Mullahs.

Occupy Wall Street Protests and a Question

September 28, 2011

“It is day 11 of the “Occupy Wall Street” campaign. On Saturday, more than 80 protesters were arrested as hundreds took part in yet another march to Wall Street. Many of them were committing civil disobedience by walking in the street . Over two thousand protesters converged on Wall Street last Saturday. By the end of the second day, those occupying Liberty Park, formerly known as Zuccotti Park on Broadway and Liberty St., had settled in, partially helped by pizza, hot chocolate and blankets paid for and delivered by their supporters in New York City and across the country”, the media reported yesterday. They also added: “The Wall Street occupation began on Sept. 17 in response to a corporate-controlled political system that is no longer serving the needs of the majority of its people. They were soon joined by the Hacktivist organization “Anonymous” in calling for a general peoples assembly. This is my first protest, my first movement. A system thats only focuses on rewarding greed should be challenged, explained Kyle from Buffalo”. It’s good that the average Americans try to protest against the greedy capitalists, but do they also protest against the stupid lefts and some one like Noam Chomsky, who support the tyranny and the savage tyrants in the world? Apparently and unfortunately the vast majority of “Occupy Wall Street” protesters are Chomsky’s fans. And it’s really shameful.


The media added: “While Saturday saw the most activity in terms of rallies, assemblies and marches, Sunday became a day of support for the occupation. Thousands of New Yorkers stopped in to either see or support the growing city of sleeping bags, signs and popular assemblies. The highlight of the day was when over $2,000 in pizza was ordered in less than an hour by supporters from around the world for the protesters in Zuccotti Plaza. By Monday afternoon reports of police interference were growing, as officers began arresting people who were using chalk to write goals and slogans on the concrete they occupied. But even with a heavy police presence, which included over 200 officers in the immediate area by Monday afternoon, protesters remained unmoved in their demands for a fairer political system”. It’s good that the American protesters can have “Occupy Wall Street” protests in the most important financial district in the world. It’s good that they can protest and no one kill them, rape them, or torture them in the hidden horrible detentions. It’s good that they could have some general assemblies in the past two weeks and freely discussed many things in the public space, in the streets and parks. It’s good that the police arrested the protesters who were committing civil disobedience only for one or two nights, not for one year and more without any court, any law, and any lawyer (like our situation in Iran). It’s good that the police did not kill the protesters who were committing civil disobedience. It’s good that the US is not like Iran, Syria, Libya, Venezuela, Russia, China, etc. But it’s bad that many American protesters can not understand the difference between their conditions in the US and our conditions in Iran. It’s bad that they can not think independently of the stupid lefts and the stupid fake intellectuals .


“Organizers claimed repeated use of excessive force by the NYPD to break up their marches, reporting 80 arrests on Saturday and numerous injuries. Police say the arrests were mostly for blocking traffic; charges included disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Protest spokesman Patrick Bruner criticized the police response as “exceedingly violent” and said the protesters sought to remain peaceful. Other protesters were yelling, “Banks got bailed out, we got sold out,” and called on shoppers to join them in their march. The protesters, who have been camped out on Wall Street since last Saturday, have been sleeping on cardboard boxes and eating takeaway dinners paid for by donations to their cause . Videos uploaded to YouTube show officers pepper-spraying protesters in the face from close range, punching demonstrators and dragging people through the street. “They’re angry at what’s going on in the world,” Marini, 37, who has been involved in the protest, was quoted in the Daily Mail. “But it’s a good atmosphere. They have a sense of love with each other.” the media added. It’s bad that their police, NYPD, is stupid, but it’s good that their police is not as stupid as and as brutal and savage as the Mullah Police in Iran. It’s good that the protesters can be happy there and can have good atmosphere.


“The anti-corporate protests have been lightly covered in the hometown New York Times: One piece (9/18/11) largely about how the police blocked access to Wall Street, and one photo (9/22/11) with the caption “Wall Street Protest Whirls On. The protests have been treated with brief mentions on CNN. From the ABC, CBS and NBC network news, we could find nothing at all. On the PBS NewsHour (9/19/11), the protests got a brief reference. Some voices in the media have noted the lack of coverage. In MSNBC (9/19/11), Michael Moore said, “People are down on Wall Street right now, holding a sit-in and a camp-in down there -virtually no news about this protest.” If that’s a Tea Party protest in front of Wall Street, it’s the lead story on every network newscast. The media preference for Tea Party gatherings over progressive activism is well-documented”, some American liberals said. It’s bad that the American mass media is hypocrite and stupid. They showed us their true colors in 2009, when Iranians were brutally suppressred and killed in the streets. But it’s bad that many alternative media in the US are hypocrite and stupid, too. They are the stupid lefts’ media, who support the savage tyrants and the tyranny in the name of fighting against Capitalism and Imperialism . In 2009, these stupid bastards supported the Mullahs and the military coup in Iran.


“The Wall St. occupiers have followed the examples of Egypt, Greece, and Spain in using the direct democratic process of the general assembly. This means thousands of young people are having their first exhilarating taste of their voice being part of the actual exercise of power – participating in a movement. In truth, this is our best hope, so spread it and bring that exhilaration to your friends and family”, some Americans say. It’s good that they want to have “direct democracy” and general assembly there. It’s good that they try to protest against the stupid politicians. But it’s really bad that they are the stupid fans or followers of some one like Noma Chomsky. The stupid lefts and some one like Noam Chomsky, who love and defend the tyranny and the savage tyrants, are really worse than those bastards who rule the US now. The stupid lefts’ ideal is somewhere like USSR and some one like Stalin or Putin. They love Khamenei, Assad, Gaddafi, Taliban, etc and clearly and openly defend them. You should protest against the greedy capitalists, but shouldn’t you protest against the stupid lefts as well ?
