The Ashura Traitors

December 6, 2011

In 2009 protests, the Ashura day was a key day. It has become a key day in Iran’s history, too. Before that Ashura day, Mousavi and all Islamist-Reformists shut their damn mouth and did not call for any demonstration and any protest. The mercenaries and fake intellects said: “Only if Mousavi, the Islamist-Reformists, the politicians, or [fake] intellectuals call for a demonstration, the people would go to the streets; otherwise, there is not any protest.” But it was a big lie, like other Iranian baboons’ bullshits. In the Ashura day, the people went to the streets and created a historic day, and it shocked both the Iranian baboons and the Mullahs. It proved that the people dont care about Mousavi and the Islamist-Reformists. The people went to the streets and did not wait for Mousavi. And the world clearly saw “Iranians want to topple the Islamic regime”. In that Ashura day, the savage Mullahs and their Basiji thugs brutally killed many people. Iranians inside Iran remember that revolutionary Ashura day, when millions of people were in the streets and chanted anti-Mullah and anti-Islamist slogans. In that Ashura day, the savage Islamists and the savage Basiji thugs threw the people down from the bridges, crushed the people under their vehicles tires, shot at the people, and massacre the people in a way that was quite rare in Iran’s history. But the west still refused to help Iranians. Timothy Garton Ash on Wednesday 6 January 2010, wrote: “The Ashura protests should shame the west into a change of policy on Iran. Martyrdom is piled upon martyrdom. The senior members of the Obama administration suggest that they want to try to exploit the weakness of the Mullah regime to win some inches on the nuclear negotiation, neglecting the mile that might be gained by political change. Iranians listen carefully to what the west is saying. At this critical moment, it would be shaming if what Iranians who are risking their lives for more freedom heard was, in effect, ‘the west only really cares about the nuclear issue’ . And that would only be reinforced by photographs of the Mullahs meeting with high European and American officials -again to talk only about the nuclear issue. At this moment, the message Europe and America together should send to the Mullahs is : “We are in no hurry to shake the hand the Mullahs extend to us, when it has just been wiped clean of a protestor’s blood”. That message would accord better with both our values and our long-term interests” But the western politicians and their media were so stupid and so hypocrite. The people who live in Tehran, know that each year (before 2009) Tajrish, Tehran Bazaar, and many other areas were very crowded in Ashura. But at that Ashura day, these places were like an ordinary day, and it was quite unprecedented. The people who live in Tehran, know that millions of the people had gone to central Tehran, and fought against the Mullahs and their mercenaries. At that time, many said: “What has happened in Tehran and Iran, is worse than what happened in Karbala in 1400 years ago”. But do you know what happened after the Ashura Massacre?

The Mullahs, the Iranian baboons, and also their western supporters, all were shocked. They desperately began to save the Mullah regime. Their media, from the VOA Farsi and the BBC Persian to the Iranian baboons’ websites, tried to discourage and deceive the people. Now, even the stupidest Iranians can see how Mousavi and Islamist-Reformists went from we dont give up to Khamenei and his demands; this government is illegitimate (Khordad 1388, Mousavi) and We need a referendum (Tir 1388, Khatami) to “Our Islamic regime is powerful [!] It’s not too late, and this government and our Islamic regime still can win the people confidence [!!]” (Dey 1388, Mousavi) and Oh, Great leader, Khamenei, please forgive us and the people (Khordad 1390, Khatami). But at that time, many people stupidly thought that the Iranian baboon’s media are the people media, and relay the voices of the people. The Iranian baboons were considered as hero or intellectual. But one day after the Ashura, the Iranian baboons showed their true colors. Masoud Behound wrote: Im worried. Im really worried. I did not want to see another revolution in my life. What I saw in the Ashura Day was signs of another revolution in Iran. We dont need another revolution. The people should go back to their homes. We know how we could fight for our values, so please listen to us. We are not traitors, we will not betray the martyrs blood, but its not the proper time for protesting. Please go back to your homes. Protesting in the streets is not our solution. Can you believe it? It’s exactly what Masoud motherf-u-c-k-er Behound wrote in Roozonline (1388/10/7), one day after the Ashura Massacre. And at that day, Roozonline that the western countries support it financially, had another surprise for Iranians. Ezzatollah Sahabi wrote: We should not chant against Khamenei. We should not chant against the Islamic Republic. We should chant only against Mr. shit. The Ashura day was a revolutionary day, but the people should not lose their patience. This regime would kill one million people if they think the people want to topple them. We should be killed and tortured without asking for a revolution. We should advertise the fact that Mr. shit is the main problem of Iran, not Khamenei. We should not chant against Khamenei Can you believe it? It’s exactly what Ezzatollah motherf-u-c-k-er Sahabi wrote. But some idiots ask: “why the people did not care about Sahabis’ death and also about his daughter’s death, who died at her father funeral (check Archive)?”. Haleh Sahabi’s death was so tragic, but she had not protested against her stupid father when he betrayed the people and their movement after the Ashura.

Sahabi’s family was cursed by their betrayals, and the people gave them a proper answer in 2011, by ignoring them. And it’s the destiny and fate of all Ashura traitors and Iranian baboons. Ezzatollah Sahabi, 80+, died in 2011(1390), and the people and the history spit on his grave for ever. Ezzatollah Sahabi, like other Iranian baboons, had created the Mullah regime in 1979, and defended the regime of Islamist killers and rapists in 2009, and deserved to be cursed for ever. But Sahabi was not alone, and his friends helped him a lot. Ebrahim Nabavi was another Iranian baboons that showed his true color after the Ashura day. Ebrahim motherf-u-c-k-er Nabavi wrote (Jaras, 1388/10/12) : After Ashura day, some Iranians say that we need mass and general strike, or sit-down strike, but Mousavi say that Iranians should go back to their homes, and the street protests is enough. Some Iranians say we need revolution and radical change, but Mousavi and Islamist-Reformists say that we dont need any radical change or revolution. The revolution is dead, as far as I know. The modern world rejects the revolution, and we will not see another revolution in the world [!!] The green movement needs a brake pedal” Can you believe it? But it’s the comedy of the history that after this historic shameful bullshits, all people saw a lot of revolutions in 2011, the year of uprisings and revolutions !, and laughed at the depth of stupidity and charlatanism of the Iranian baboons. Of course, Nabavi said one true thing. The Iranian baboons were the brake pedal of the people movement. In fact, since 1997, Iranian baboons have been a brake pedal for the people movements. But now in 2011, these brake pedals are broken. Ebrahim motherfucker Nabavi also added: “We should wait for a negotiation time, a deal time, and if we wait, then in the near future Mousavi and Khamenei will sit down at the negotiating table. Mousavis statement is the beginning of our victory. In the near future Mousavi will go to Khameneis office and say: “Im ready for negotiation. Iranians should go back to their homes, and should not lose their patience . In fact, the brake pedals encouraged the people to remain in their homes. They ask the people to not chant against Khamenei and the Islamic regime. The brake pedals were mercenaries and traitors who earned money by betraying the people. It’s their job. They are mercenary and live by deceiving and manipulating the people. But the brake pedals have a sell-by date and after that, the people only spit on them and their graves for ever.

Akbar Ganji was another Iranian baboon that clearly showed why the Islamic reform period was so disappointing and stupid, and failed. Now many say: “A period that Khatami was its president, Akbar Ganji was its hero, and Masoud behnoud and Ebrahim Nabavi were its journalists, was the dark age of Iranian baboons, and if it had succeeded in reforming, it would have been a great miracle!” The Iranian baboons were master in pretending, playing games, telling lie, and manipulating the people, but now almost all people know the true colors of Iranian baboons and Iranian fake intellectuals, and it’s a great victory for Iranians. We should not forget how the media and fake intellectuals play with the people in the US, the UK, and other countries, and how the stupid lefts and some one like Noam Chomsky, and the hypocrite western mass media can manipulate and deceive the people in the west. In fact, what Iranians did was quite rare in the current shitty world that is full of stupid or naive people. Now, Iranians know the true colors of their fake intellectuals and their hypocrite media, and don’t listen to them, but many people in the US and the UK are still so naive or so stupid. Just look how many educated people in the west are fans or followers of Mr. stupid, Noam Chomsky, who defends the savage tyrants and the tyranny. The younger generations of Iranians are more modern than their counterparts in the west, because they know their fake intellectuals and are politically aware, but their counterparts in the west are still fans or followers of the fake intellects, and are not well-informed. In 2011, Akbar Ganji said: “Why Iranians want to topple the Mullah regime? [!!] What happened in Libya is not revolution [it’s a plot]. The Nato killed ten thousands in Libya, not Gaddafi [!!]. Many Libyans did not hate Gaddafi [!!] Why Iranians are happy about Gaddafi fall and Gaddafis death?” But Iranians inside Iran spat on Ganji and shitted on his head. Then Ganji that was shocked and confused, showed his true colors more, by kissing Pahlvai’s ass; he said: “Reza Pahlavi [the leader of stupid Monarchists] is a real Iranian. He is a great man and a great nationalist. He could be our king if we didn’t topple the Shah in 1979”. Mercenaries are always mercenary. They tell the biggest lies and betray the people, without any shame. But the age of mercenaries who called themselves “intellectual” has ended in Iran. Now, the people know the Iranian baboons and “Ashura Traitors”, and also know why the Iranian movements failed, and who betrayed the people in 2009, and since 1997.

Iranian-protesters-hold-d-001.jpg

The Iranian baboons and shameless jerks ask: “Why Iranians don’t protest now, and why we don’t see any protests in Iran now?” and then add: “It shows us that Iranians are not ready to a serious change. They are still stupid”. These worthless jerks are so shameless. One day, during the protests, they are “the brake pedal” and ask the people to remain in their homes and be patient, and one day say: “Why Iranians don’t protest” ! These shameless jerks play games, but they don’t know that we live in the 21st century, not in the Stone Age, and now you can’t be “Brake Pedal and Mullah mercenary” and “Anti-Mullah or Intellectual” at the same time ! Iranians inside Iran are not foolish enough to kill themselves for keeping the Islamic Monarchy safe or for restoring the secular Monarchy, as the stupid Pahlavists dream about it . When the western countries support the Mullahs and sell them tools of suppressions for creating an Orwellian society in Iran; When the majority of Iranian exapts are indifferent animals or stupid bastards like Monarchists, Pahlavists, Rajavists, Communists, Khatamists, and other Iranian baboons; When the western countries support the Iranian baboons and their media financially and politically, and the western mass media only work with the Iranian baboons, and ignore Iranians inside Iran; When the VOA Farsi and the BBC Persian are voices of the Mullahs and the Mullah Mafia; When Obama, the British Mullah Makers, and other jerks in the west support the Mullah regime and make love with the Mullahs, the Mullah embezzlers, and the Mullah Mafia in the west; and when the Iranian baboons and their media are called Iranian media, and Iranians inside have not any media, what can the Iranians inside Iran do? They are really wiser and braver than many people in the UK and the US, and other countries. The stupid people in OWS movement even have not a list of demands after some months. Many stupid people in OWS talk nonsense about abolishing democracy and Republic system, and establishing Theocracy or Communism. Many stupid people in OWS are fans or followers of stupid Noam Chomsky. Many stupid people in OWS are ignorant and want to repeat history. And in the UK, everybody saw the UK riots and the stupidity of rioters, the hypocrisy of the British media, the charlatanism of the British politicians, and the stupidity of other protester groups who did not create a mass protest in that proper time. So, Iranians are not stupider than other people. And don’t forget what the great Howard Zinn said: We in USA, think it requires a lot of courage just to speak your mind. I’m not going to be executed. I’m not even going to be given a long jail sentence. I may be thrown into jail for a day or two. I may be fired, I may get a salary decrease, but these are pitiful things compared to what happens to people in the world. Somebody says: Are you willing to risk your job? Are you willing to risk that you wont get tenure? These are pitiful risks compared to the risks that people have taken in the world It’s really true. These are really pitiful risks compared to the risks that people have taken in Iran.

The Iranian baboons and Ashura traitors are so shameless. In 2009, Abbas Abdi said: “If the people were beaten to death, they should not defend themselves, because its violence [!] The people should not chant against Khamenei. The people should listen to their leader, Mousavi. They should not chant against the Islamic regime”. And in 2011, Abbas motherf-u-c-k-er Abdi added: “ In 2009, just dozens of protesters were killed [!!] and hundreds were arrested [!!]. Those groups who protests against Khatami, want to kill more people. They think 40 or 50 martyrs is not enough for Iran. They want to convert Iran to another Libya”. When at least 40 or 50 people were killed only in the Ashura day, and while the name of more than 250 killed people have been published, and when the real number of martyrs is near some thousands, the Ashura traitors try to live by being mercenary and telling big lies. The jerks like Abbas motherf-u-c-k-er Abdi and his friends, who are ex-members of Mullah Gestapo and occupied the US embassy in 1979 and imposed a dreadful war on Iran, and created the great tragedy of 1980s, and betrayed the people in 1990s and 2000s, are criminal and should answer to many questions. Almost all Ashura traitors are 50+ and have a role in creating the Mullah regime. But not only they have not apologized to the people for their great mistakes in 1979 and 1980s, but they betrayed the people in 2009, and still betray the people. As we said before, recently Masoud
motherf-u-c-k-er Behnoud said: “If the world leaders listen to the voices of Iranians inside Iran and the voices of the victims [of the savage Mullahs], it would be very dangerous for Iran. In 2009, the Mullahs regime tried to keep order and restore order. What happened in 2009 was Mojadeleh (argument)”. The traitors and mercenaries like Masoud Behnoud, Abbas Abdi, Akbar Ganji, Ebrahim Nabavi, the coward jerk Khatami, and other Iranian baboons betrayed Iran, Iranians and their movement not only after the Ashura, but when they encouraged the people to not use the efficient non-violent protests like sit-down strike, daily protests”, “staying in the streets, general strike, etc in 2009. They were “Brake Pedal” and wanted to keep their beloved Mullah regime safe. They thought they can “eat from both the manger (Akhor) and the nosebag (Tubreh)“; It’s a funny Iranian old saying about the opportunists and ass-kissers, who try to kiss the ass of both sides of a conflict or a deal. The Iranian baboons and Ashura traitors knew that the Islamic regime has many benefits for them, but they did not know that they can not play games for ever, and they can not eat from both the manger and the nosebag for ever. In fact, their manger is full of the people’s blood, and what they eat (their mercenary money) is the people’s blood. And when you eat the people’s blood, you will be cursed for ever. The people spit on you and your grave for ever. Anyway, Iran and the world in 2010s is not like 1970s. Now, the world can help the suppressed nations and many know that it’s in the interests of the whole world. In the American Revolution, the French helped the Americans. But does it mean the Americans were stooge of the French? or the French brought Americans freedom and democracy? No, the French just helped the Americans because it was in their own interests, too. And Its what Iranians want, and what should happen in Iran. The western politicians should stop talking nonsense about nuclear matters or the Mullah threats!, and Instead, they should apologize to Iranians for what they did in 2009, and for refusing to help the anti-Mullah movement of Iranians. They should stop supporting the Iranian baboons, and should stop supporting the Mullahs and aiding them in suppressing the people. It’s better for them and the whole world. “The Plague” should not be forgotten.


The Election Show in Russia

December 5, 2011

“Kadyrov, the brutal dictator of Chechnya, said that 99.51% of its voters backed Putin’s United Russia party; in the past it has been reported as 100%, while he himself had promised “more than 100%” this time. But the central elections commission in Russia, said that United Russia had won 50.07% of the vote. Maybe Putin’s United Russia party would lose its majority in the Duma, or lower house, and fail to win an absolute majority of votes as in the past”, the media reported yesterday. The also added: “The Russian voters had taken to social media to report apparent violations. A YouTube user in east Moscow illustrated how the pens at booths in school #1114 were filled with invisible ink. In the Siberian city of Novokuznetsk, a user showed how ballot boxes had arrived at a polling site one-third filled with votes. A Moscow user filmed an election official at polling station #2501 filling out ballots as he sat at his desk. Several users filmed buses, nicknamed “carousels”, which appeared to be carrying the same people to various stations so they could vote over and over again. ” It’s the dirtiest, foulest elections of the last 20 years,” one opposition leader said. “We can’t even call them elections; it’s the theft of votes from the Russian people.” It clearly shows that comrade Putin is exactly like comrade Stalin and comrade Khamenei.

putin_vs_stalin_903555.jpg

We should wait and see what the young Russians do after this stupid election show in Russia. The media also added: “Liberal media outlets faced hacker attacks. The website of radio station Ekho Moskvy, web portal Slon, and weekly journal Bolshoi Gorod were inaccessible all yesterday. The website of Golos, the only independent election monitor, was brought down by a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack, after days of government pressure; it complained its volunteer monitors were not admitted into polling stations around the country. “The government is losing popularity, so they’re using the filthiest methods of theft”, a Russian says. The riot police prevented access to Red Square. More than 100 people were arrested at an unsanctioned protest in Triumfalnaya Square, dragged away by police in riot gear into waiting lorries. Another 50 were held in St Petersburg.” In the year of revolutions and uprisings, 2011, the young Russians should show that they are not stupider than the stupid Islamists in the stupid Arab world. Some ask: “Is 2010s’ Russia is as stupid as 1910s’ Russia?” What the young Russians will do after this stupid selection show, will show us how stupid or how wise today’s Russians are. We can wait and see what the young Russians will do in the next days.


Muharram and Ashura in Iran

December 5, 2011

In these days, Muharram and Ashura remind many of the 2009 protests and the historic story of Iranian baboons and the Ashura traitors. The fake intellectuals, mercenaries, and traitors who betray the people movement in 2009, were worst than the Mullahs. The people knew the Mullahs and their Basiji thugs, but the Iranian baboons and the Ashura traitors who tried to keep the Mullah regime safe, pretended that they are anti-Mullah. These stupid bastards and the savage Mullahs created a historical milestone for Iran and Iranians. Before 2009, Muharram and Ashura had its own characteristics, but after 2009 many things changed. Tassua and Ashura (9th and 10th of Muharram) are official holidays in Iran. Third Imam of Shi’a and his family and followers (known as “72 people”) were killed by army of Yazid at the Battle of Karbala on the 10th of Muharram (Ashura) in 680 CE, and the surviving members of his family and his followers were taken captive and marched to Damascus and imprisoned there. Shi’as believe the Battle of Karbala was between the forces of good and evil, with Hussein representing good while Yazid represented evil. As we said before, Shiism is the Iranian version of Islam, and the traditions of Muharram and it’s festival of Mourning, has a deep Persian root. After the Arab invasion, the legends of Siavash and his innocence and his martyrdom, and Shiavashan, the festival of Mourning for Siavash, were mixed with other Persian traditions and created the festival of Muharram. Some say: “Iranians believed that Hussein and his martyrdom in the battle of Karbala, while his army had about 100 soldiers and Yazid’s army had 10,000 soldiers, was like the story of Siavash and his martyrdom. The savage Arabs who killed Hussein, the grandson of Muhammad, were the enemy of Iranians who had occupied Iran. So, when Iranians heard that the savage Arabs killed those who fought against the Arab dictator, Yazid, they used this tragedy to fight against the savage Arabs”

2203003109_0676dd8a38.jpg

Muharram is the first month of the Arabic/ Islamic calendar. Since the Arabic calendar is a lunar calendar, Muharram moves from year to year when compared with the Iranian calendar (and also the Gregorian calendar). Muharran is when the Arabs celebrate their new year, and are happy. But Iranians converted Muharram into a mourning month, and in this way fought against the Arabs. While the Arabs were wearing their white clothes, while had forbidden others to wear black cloth, Iranians were wearing their black clothes and performed their ancient mourning festival, Siavashan, for Hussein and his remembrance. They said: “Imam Hussein and his supporters were killed for the truthfulness and fighting against tyranny and oppression”. As we said before, the Safavid era had the main rule in converting Muharram and Ashura into a national festival in Iran. They used Muharram and Ashura, and other Persian traditions to fight against the Arabs and the Ottoman Turks who were Sunni Muslims. The festival of Muharram and Ashura was totally symbolic, and had many similarities with Siavashan. The Iranians used the ancient Persian tradition of “Nazr” (distributing free foods among the people) to cook Nazri (charity food) in Muharram. It’s an ancient Persian tradition that the people cook food and give it to others, including the poor, friends and family, in their ceremonies. This charity food or free food, is called Nazri. In fact, Iranians donate food and call it Nazr. The Nazri foods in Muharram are Iranian foods like Gheimeh, Ghorme Sabzi, Morgh, Kebab, Adas Polo, and many other local foods. But the main food or Nazri in Muharram is “Gheymeh” that is also called “Gheimeh Ashura” or “Gheymeh Nazri”. Gheimeh or Gheymeh is one of the delicious Iranian stews (with yellow split peas as its key element) that is eaten with rice. In fact, it’s a “Polo Khoresht” (Pilaf and Stew). When it’s cooked in the large scale as Nazri, with its special techniques and traditions, it becomes more delicious, and I think if each of you eat “Gheymeh Nazri”, you would never forget its delicious taste.

Nazri2.jpg

In Muharram and in Ashura days, you can see people who line up to get Nazri foods. They do it because Nazri foods are very delicious. Of course, some old people believe Nazri food has healing power, but after 2009, many religious people say: “The Nazri foods of the Mullahs and the savage Islamists who killed, raped, and tortured the people has killing power, not healing power !”. Many irreligious people and those who are non-Muslim eat Nazri food in Ashura day, only because it’s very delicious. Some say: “The Ashura day is like a festival of food. Many are in the streets and enjoy foods and seeing each others in the streets. In fact, it’s like what has happened to the religious days in the US and other parts of the world. In Ashura day, you can see the ordinary boys and girls that have a Nazri food in their hands, or eat Nazri foods with each others, and are happy and enjoy their day”. In fact, before 2009, the festival of Muharram and Ashura were changing gradually. As we said before: “The ordinary Iranian youths changed even Muharram and Ashura. The Mullah newspapers confess: In Muharram’s nights, women and girls in tight clothes and transparent scarves and guys dressed in Western fashion lit candles while laughing their hearts out. In this disgraceful event which is like a large street party, women and girls, as well as men and boys, mocked Muslims beliefs and sanctities in the most shameless manner [!] Some long-haired guys would openly cuddle girls creating awful and immoral scenes [!] Fast, provoking music gave the street party more steam. Everythings become a farce [!]. They no more respect anyone, even Imam Hussein. But after 2009, even many religious people have changed, and don’t think like before. And its a very important and meaningful change in Iran. Now, many religious people say: “Ashura is a tribute to truth and justice and condemnation of tyranny anytime and anywhere. And now the Mullahs and the savage Islamists are symbol of injustice and tyranny”.

1261763069.jpg

After 2009, Ashura day reminds Iranians of the Mullahs’ savagery. Many religious people in Iran have changed their minds after what the savage Mullahs and their Islamist thugs did to the people in 2009. Who can forget the Ashura massacre in 1388? At that Ashoura day, the savage Mullahs killed at least 40 to 50 men and women in Iran, and many believe the number of victims is really larger than this. Now, even the religious people in Iran say: “For us, Karbala and Ashura is what happened in 2009 and what happened in Kahrizah and in the streets of Iranian cities. 1400 years ago, 72 great soldiers were killed in a war, because they wanted to be free and didn’t want to kiss the dictator’s ass, the Yazid’s ass. At that time, those 72 people were in the minority, but they fought for their values and principles. But in 2009, 72 million people that were in majority fought for freedom and democracy, and the savage dictator and his evil men, who were in minority, killed and raped the ordinary people in the streets and secret prisons, not in the war field. Yazid didn’t rape men and women, but Khamenei and the Mullahs showed that they are worse than Yazid”. It’s what the religious people say. They also add: “The savage Mullahs talk nonsense about 1400 years ago. They say that Imam Hussein and his soldiers fought against a brutal dictator (Yazid) and his mercenaries, and were killed because they cared about “fighting against hypocrisy” or “fighting against big lies”, or “fighting against mercenaries who sell themselves and their humanity”. But in 2009, the savage Mullahs and their savage Basiji thugs proved that they are worse than Yazid and his mercenaries. They told the biggest possible lies; they were the greatest possible hypocrite men; and they killed and raped men and women who only protested against hypocrisy and big lies”. And some religious people add: “The savage Mullahs and savage Islamists are joke. It’s funny that the savage Mullahs and savage Islamists shed crocodile tears for 1400 years ago and for what Yazid did in a classic war, that was quite normal among the savage Arabs at that time. But what the Mullahs did in 2009 was worse than 1400 years ago. They killed, raped, and tortured tens of thousands ordinary people for staying in power at any price.”

The festival of Muharram and Ashura is held in other countries, specially in areas that were part of Persia in the past. Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Azerbaijan, and many other parts of Great Persia have the same ceremonies in Muharram. Its funny that even the American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan help the people in cooking Nazri foods in Ashura Day. In fact, cooking Nazri food and giving it to others is a good tradition, and can become a global tradition. Of course, when the savage Mullahs and their savage Basiji thugs kill, torture, and suppress the people, everything that is related to them would destroy, and it’s what Iranians can see it in the recent years. In the past years, the people cooked Nazri by their own money and held Muharram ceremonies by their own will, but in the recent years, the Mullahs give the oil money to the Islamists for cooking Nazri and holding Muharram ceremonies, and it’s a clear sign of the Mullahs’ bankruptcy in Iran. The Mullah TV and radio channels alter their programs in Muharram and become a mourning station, and desperately try to encourage the people to participating in the Muharram ceremonies, but the people don’t care about the Mullahs and what they say, and it’s another clear sign of the Mullahs’ bankruptcy in Iran. Tazieh (meaning condolence theater) and Pardeh-khani (dramatic narration that accompanies events depicted on painted curtains), that date back to the pre-Islamic period, have been destroyed too. In fact, the Mullahs proved that if you want to destroy a tradition in your country, you can employ the Mullahs and the Mullah system to defend that tradition. And in this way, after some years, you can be sure that not only the tradition is totally forgotten and ruined, but everybody hates it. Indeed, In 21st century, when you force others to accept something and kill and torture the people to accept that thing, you can be sure that you only disgrace and discredit yourself and that thing.

The Muharram and Ashura is a festival for the religious people in Iran. As we said before, being religious or irreligious is not the important matter; being sheep or charlatan is the important matter. Many ordinary people who are religious people in Iran or the US , or in any other part of the world, are good guys who just care about honesty, humanity, truthfulness, and many other human values. They care about other people and try to help others, and don’t want to impose their religion on others. They want to live in peace with others. Who can have any problem with these good guys who live like humans ? They are certainly much more better than those irreligious people who live like animals and are sheep or charlatan. But it’s so obvious that a religious charlatan is more dangerous that an irreligious charlatan. And the religious savagery is more dangerous than irreligious savagery. Those who kill and torture others in the name of god or religion are like the savage people in the Stone Age, who were more dangerous than animals, because they were more powerful and more bigoted. In 2009, and in that historic Ashura day, dozens or hundreds of Iranians were killed in the streets. But the Ashura traitors, and the jerk and bastards like Masoud Behnoud, Ebrahim Nabavi, Abbas Abdi, Akbar Ganji, Ezzat Sahabi, Khatami, Khoeini, etc betrayed the people and their bloods. These stupid bastards who were straw heroes of the naive people and pretended that they are nationalist or intellectual, betrayed the people and sold themselves to the Mullahs or the western politicians. But now, in 2011, the people know their true colors and they are so disgraced in Iran. In the recent days, some of these stupid jerks decided to fall into a pool of sewage. They clearly praised Reza Pahlavi, the leader of the Monarchists. These stupid jerks have been converted into sewage, and the people will dump them into the WC of Iran’s history very soon. The WC of history is the best place for these worthless jerks and stupid mercenaries.

A very Brief History of Iran and Iranian Religions

December 4, 2011

These days are days of Muharram and its Persian traditions that some call it “Festival of Muharram”. Muharram and its Persian traditions in Iran, that are part of Shiism, the Iranian version of Islam, can be divided into two era, before 2009 and after 2009. The 2009 massacre, the Ashura massacre, and the story of the Ashura traitors have changed many things in Iran that we would write more about it later. But now, it’s not bad we take a look at the history of Iran and Iranian religions. As you probably know, the religion in Iran has a very long history, more than 10,000 years. Mithraism and Zoroastrianism are two old Persian religions that influenced almost all religions. As we said before, Iran was a big country and only in 19th century and after the Russian and British attacks to Iran (Persia), the country became as small as today’s Iran. The eastern neighbor of Iran was India, and China was the eastern-north neighbor. In the north of Iran, in today’s Russia, the savage tribes lived in the cold and empty areas. The western neighbors of Iran were different countries at different times, from Babylonians and Assyrians to Greeks, Turks, and Egyptians. In the south of Iran, there was the hot and empty desert of Arabia with a few savage tribes. Before the Arab invasion in 1400 years ago, Iranians never thought that the hot and empty desert of Arabia and its savage tribes could make any problem for them. Arabs occupied Iran for about 200 years and after that Iranians tried to free their country and had a series of long and continuous wars with their western neighbors, Arabs and Turks. Mongols and their invasions from the east, solved the problems of Arabs for ever, but they created a new tragedy and a big disaster for Iranians for about 200 years. In the Safavid era, and after 1501, Iranians restored the Persian Empire, but like Europe and other parts of the world, the long and continuous wars, specially with the western neighbors, were part of the daily life. Before the 19th century, only the western borders of Iran changed every now and then, and were not like the Persian Empire in the 5th century BC (below map); but the northern, eastern and southern borders were almost fixed. The story of civilization is like the story of Iran. Hegel writes in his book The Philosophy of history: “The principle of evolution begins with the history of Iran”. The main part of the story of civilization began after the last Ice Age. Broadly speaking, the Stone Age began roughly 2.5 million years ago and ended in parts of the world after the last Ice Age. In the Stone Age, Human groups in different parts of the world began using stone tools at different times and abandoned stone for metal tools at different times. What we know it as “Religion”, is part of the story of civilization, mainly after the Stone Age. As we said before, the history of human evolution, and also the story of civilization and the ancient history have many unclear and ambiguous things. But we can draw a very big and rough picture of what has happened after the Ice Age.

ice-age-cover.jpg

During the last Ice Age, in 15,000 to 10,000 years ago, almost all parts of Europe and North America were buried under thick layers of ice. Australia and America were totally isolated and had their own civilization and their own spiritual traditions, but Africa, Asia, and Europe were connected to each others, as “the old world”, and what we know it as “Religion” is a legacy of “the old world”. As you know, the main civilizations of the old world are: Iran, India, China, Egypt, and Greece. Jason Cooper in his book “Mithras: Mysteries and initiation rediscovered” says: “An Iranian, Zoroaster, is the most important person in the recorded history of religion. The first man to promulgate a divinely revealed religion. He influenced the religions of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Manicheism, etc. Over half the world has accepted a significant portion of his precepts under the guise of one or another of these faiths.” But who were Persians or Iranians? “I am Darius, the great king, the king of kings, Persian, the son of a Persian, ‘Aryan’, from the Aryan race”. It’s what you can read in the Darius’s Inscription in Naqshe-e-Rostam (in Persepolis). It’s one of most valid written evidences of the history of the Aryans. Darius I, the Achaemenian king, in the 5th century BC, declares himself a Persian and an Aryan. Herodotus, that some know him as the father of history, wrote in the 5th century BC, in his book History of Herodotus: “In ancient times, Iranians were renowned as Aryans among themselves and their neighbors”. In fact, as the oldest written records of the human history confirm, the residents of the Iranian Plateau were Aryans. Petri said: “When Egypt had only just begun the art of pottery, the people of Iran were painting beautiful pictures on ceramics.” In fact, when Europe were buried under thick layers of ice, Iranians were creating pictures on earthenware. At the end of the Ice Age, as a result of excessive rainfall on the Alborz and Zagros Mountains and the melting of the ice accumulated on the mountains, the rivers flowing through the Iranian Plateau were so large, and there were several large lakes in the central Persia. After thousands years, with the continuous warming of the earth and the decrease in rainfall, the lakes and rivers gradually became smaller and the peoples living around them, who had a common language and Aryan culture, had to find new solutions for themselves. Some decided to migrate from Iran, mainly to Europe.

Persian-Empire-Map-large.jpg

The historians believe that one of the largest ancient Iranian tribes was Cas Su, Cassi and Kassi, which means fair-eyed and fair-faced. The name of central city of Kashan (Kassan) and also the name of the Caspian sea are a relic of this ancient Aryan tribe. Many relics of the Kassi tribe have also been found in the central Iran, in Qazvin and Khorramabad and other regions. The ancient paintings in central Iran that date back to 15,000 BC show people riding horses. These first Aryan inhabitants of Iran were polytheists, worshiping, as most other primitive people, natural phenomena such as fire, water, wind, the moon and the sun. But they gradually developed a cult that is known as “Mithraism” or “Kish Mehr”. In fact, the major religions of Iran can be divided into three distinct periods. Pre Zoroastrian, Zoroastrian, and the Islamic period. Zoroaster (Zarathushtra) was a Persian who founded Zoroastrianism, one of the world’s oldest living religions, in about 4000 years ago. But many Persian myths and Persian customs are older than Zoroastrianism and belong to Pre Zoroastrian. Mithraism, is the main religion in the pre Zoroastrian era in Iran. Mithra or Mehr was the ancient Persian god of light and wisdom. Mithraism was the root of Zoroastrianism, and Zoroastrianism was the first monolithic religion in the world. Mithraism and Zoroastrianism both influenced a lot of following religions -including Christianity. Many ancient religious traditions in Persia are global traditions now. The idea of life after death, notions of heaven, hell and limbo, the idea of Satan or Ahriman, the idea of crossing of the bridge on the road to heaven (that decide the final fate), the idea of resurrection, the idea of being judged after the death, notion of individual judgment, the idea of fasting and paying religious tax, regarding fire as a sacred entity, using candle and fire in the funeral rites and the ritual, charity and distributing food among the poor, symbolic uses of food, animal sacrifice, avoiding certain foods, thanksgiving to God, daily and periodic ceremonies and ritual, a series of holy days and holy festivals and celebrations, and many other traditions are among what the Persian introduced to the world in 10,000 to 4,000 years ago. Some believe that after Alexander’s era, Mithraism spread rapidly throughout Rome (Italy) and the Roman provinces in the 1st century BC. Mithraism became popular there, and Christianity borrowed many things from Mithraism, that we would write more about it later. Mithraism was older than Zoroastrianism, and many Persian traditions and the Persian myths about Mithra, Anahita, Jamshid, Siavash, Arash, Kaveh, Zahak, Sraosha (Soroush), Rashnu, etc are older than Zoroastrianism and belongs to Pre Zoroastrian, mainly to the Mithraic culture. Anahita or Nahid is the old Persian form of an Iranian goddess, as the divinity of ‘the Waters’ (Aban) and hence associated with fertility, healing and wisdom. [now “Aban” is the name of the 8th month in the Iranian calendar, and “Mehr” is the name of the 7th month].

300px-Statue_of_Anahita_in_Maragha.jpg

Anahita that was known as “the Lady of Persia” is considered as the mother of Mithra. Legends about Mithra claim that he was conceived by a young virgin named Anahita or Nahid. It is said that Anahita became impregnated magically while bathing in the waters of Lake Hamun in Sistan (eastern Iran). Now, the Anahita Temples or Mithraic temples (Mithraeums), are found in all around Persia. One of the largest Anahita Temple in western Persia at Kangavar (in Kermanshah), dedicated to “Anahita, the Immaculate Virgin Mother of the Lord Mithra”. Other Mithraic temples were built in Khuzestan and in Central Iran near present-day Mahallat, and also in Bishapur (in Fars, below picture), Hamedan, Istakhr, Yazd, Ray, Armenia (north-west Persia), etc. Some say: “The “most beloved mountain shrines of the Zoroastrians of Yazd, set beside a living spring and a great confluence of water-courses, is devoted to Banu-Pars, “the Lady of Persia” (Anahita)”. Anahita and Mithra’s sculptures are found in almost all ancient cities in Iran. Artaxerxes’ inscription at Susa reads: “By the will of Ahura Mazda, Anahita, and Mithra I built this palace. May Ahura Mazda, Anahita, and Mithra protect me from all evil”. The above picture is a sculpture of Anahita in Maragha. Zoroaster used the Mithraic culture, and Zoroastrianism had many similarities with Mithraism. Some historians say: “Zoroaster changed the Mithraic culture. The many gods of the Iranian were supplanted by a new deity who was the supreme deity of the Good. This deity became known as Ahura Mazda, or the “Wise Lord.” Opposed to Ahura Mazda was Ahriman, the “Angry Spirit,” the chief deity of evil. Both deities had underlings and partners. The chief allies of Ahura Mazda were the “Amentas Spenta.” Created by the “Wise Lord,” these “Bounteous” or “Holy Immortals” included Mithra. There was a hymn to Mithra in the Zarathustrian holy work, the Avesta. It is a beautiful hymn or Yast, in it Ahura Mazda addresses Zoroaster , saying that when he created Mithra, he made him as worthy of worship as himself. In Avesta, Anahita is “Aredvi Sura Anahita” (immaculate or mighty Anahita) and she is not only a divinity, but also the source of the world river and the (name of the) world river itself. They believed all the waters of the world created by Ahura Mazda originate from the source Aredvi Sura Anahita”

“The era of Mithraism continued all the way to the time of Sasanian who strongly favored Zoroastrianism hence destroyed many belongings of the Mithraism in the Persian Empire. A similar fate destroyed Mithraism in the west when the birth of Christianity took over Mithraism. Some believe that the Romans feared being taken over by the Persians and tried to become independent. But the Roman Empire regarded Iran as the birth place of Mithraism and they made no attempt to hide it. Christianity had many similarities with Mithraism, from Virgin birth and Christmases to Killing and Resurrection. Iranians had, and still have, a special feast on December 25, on the night that Iranians call it “Yalda Night” (Birthday Night), that was the birthday of Mithra. On 25 December, the Persians had a general festival of the light and the sun. Have you ever wondered why December 25th was chosen to celebrate the birth of Christ? we would write more about it later. Anyway, in Iran, before the Arab invasion, there was a rigid class system in which the noble remained so through heredity, and the lower classes were forever denied the chance of social rise no matter how able or clever. And then came the Muslims, with a monotheistic faith, which promised equal opportunities to all. Of course, the fanatic Arabs were so stupid and savage. They resorted to ethnic prejudices and a social hierarchy in which the Arab was the master by birth. So, Iranians did not accept the Arab version of Islam, and they created their own version of Islam. Shiism first developed and spread among Iranians and gradually extended all over the world, but most Muslims have always been Sunnis or “the people of the (Prophet’s) tradition”. Sufism or Sufi Mysticism is another important cult or sect that was made by Iranians within Islam. Iranians already had their own Mysticism in Zoroastrianism and Mithraism. Unfortunately, many know nothing about the Iranian version of Islam, Shiism and Sufism. The majority of the religious people in Iran are fans or followers of Iranian Mysticism or Sufism, and they hate the Mullahs and the Mullah Islam. Shiism and Sufism have fought against the racist and fanatic Arabs. When the Arabs celebrated their new year in Muharram, Iranians had the festival of mourning in Muharram, and in this way they fought against the fanatic Arabs. The Iranian mystics have always fought against the orthodox and the fanatics. An Iranian mystic in 11th century said to his followers: You should feed every one that knocks your doors, and you never ever ask them about their religion or race . The great Persian poets, like Hafiz, Rumi, Attar, Khayyam, Abu-Saeed, Baba Taher, etc were Sufi. Even non-Sufi Iranian poets were so open-minded. Sadi, one of the great Iranian poets who lived in the 13th century, said: “Human beings are members of a whole – In creation of one essence and soul; If one member is afflicted with pain – Other members uneasy will remain; If you have no sympathy for human pain – The name of human you cannot retain”.

In fact, Iranians were not like Arabs, and they tried to mix Islam, Zoroastrianism, Mithraism, and other Persian traditions and created a new sect for themselves. In the Safavid era (1501- 1722), the Safavids who were Sufi, used this new sect to restore the Persian Empire. Many of current Islamic traditions in Iran, including the Nazri and Sofreh tradition, and the festival of Muharram and Ashura, are parts of the new or old Persian traditions that the Safavids restored or created them. In Iran, Siavash was a national hero and the first innocent martyr since the Mithraic era. The legend of Siavash says that he was a legendary Persian prince, son of Kay Kavus, Shah of Iran, and due to the treason of his stepmother, Sudabeh (with whom he refused to have s-e-x; like the story of Joseph and Zuleikha), exiled himself to Turan where he was killed innocently by order of the Turanian King (Afrasiab). Siavash was later avenged by his son Kai Khosrow. Siavash is a symbol of innocence in the Persian mythology. Since at least 5000 years ago, Iranians have had a ceremony or festival, “Suge Saivash” or “Saivashan”, that was a festival of Mourning for Saivash. It’s quite clear that what Iranians and Shiite Muslims do in Muharram is not Arabic tradition. It’s totally a Persian tradition. In Iran, one of the ancient traditions is that the people cook food and give it to others, including the poor, friends and family. This charity food or free food, is called “Nazri”. In fact, Iranians donate food and this act is call “Nazr”. It occurs when you ask something of God, and promise to make and distribute some kind of food to other people, in return. Nazr and Sofreh is a religious Persian tradition. During the festival of Mehregan and Nowruz, meat and bread were distributed, and the Zoroastrian have the tradition of Sofreh and Sofreh Nazr. In fact, traditions like Nazr, Sofreh, Festival of Muharram, Islamic Mysticism, etc are Persian traditions, not Arab traditions. Some funny Iranians say: “Arab Malakh-Khur ro che be in Harfa” (The Arabs who ate Grasshopper could not even think about these matters). According to the Persian myths, the Siavash’s blood became the first “Tulip”, and after that the tulip became the symbol of martyrs. Siavash and his legends have created many things, including the first religious theater and plays (Tazieh), the first mourning festivals (Siavashan), the first mourning songs, etc. Some say: “Iranians didn’t expect any respect from Arabs, but it’s funny while the Persian traditions and the Persian religions have had a great and significant influence on the western culture and the western religion (Christianity), the western media and the western politicians talk nonsense about Persia and Persians”. It’s really shameful.


Iran Tour Guide: Students, Hospitality, Hotels

December 3, 2011

The mass media tell big lies about Iran and Iranians. Many don’t know that Iran’s regime is a medieval regime that the western politicians support it, while Iran’s people are modern and nice people that are victim of the western hypocrisy. You can ask yourself why the mass media tell big lies, but here I don’t want to answer it. Here I want to write about the basic facts that even the stupid Iranian expats tell lie about it. These bastards still live in 1970s, and know nothing about today’s Iran. They mislead non-Iranians and disgrace Iranians inside Iran. Iran is full of ancient cities, and even in the small towns you can find historical sites, Persian generosity and hospitality, and also modern and educated boys and girls, and of course signs of a medieval regime with a few supporters, i.e. less than 10% of Iranians. Even in the small towns (like Shushtar, Dezful, Andimeshk, etc) you can see what the Iranian baboons or the western mass media tell about Iran is a big lie. A German tourist writes: “In Dezful, when a man drove by on his motorcycle asking if he could take my picture I could not have cared less. I did not smile either. It was just too hot. I hate heat. It was 37 degrees Celsius in the shade. I look red when I just think red. But when it is 37 degrees, I have walked around for 2 hours mid-day, and I find myself in long sleeves and under a black woolen scarf, I look fire-hydrant red and ill and I feel like I am going to die. Five minutes later that man came back with his wife in tow. Did I want to come to their house for tea and some food? I really must have looked pitiful. I did not even do the Iranian polite decline. I accepted. Their living room was shady, a fan was going and I got tea, an orange, an apple, and some chocolate and by the time I was ready to leave two scarves were piled up in front of me and three Iranian coins. I did more than the three polite declines, but was forced to accept it all. Once again, it is hard to describe the hospitality and generosity of all the people I meet. That was Nasser and Mahnos and their son Mohammed. None of them spoke English. Mohammed found a phrase book and read phrase after phrase to me [!!] So, we had some good laughs. Mahnos was relaxed, short-sleeved and without any head cover until I asked to take a photo with her” [1] Do you think how many Iranians have seem a small town like Dezful in the southern Iran? less than 5% ! But even those tourists who go to these small towns in Iran, can see signs of the Persian Culture and Persian Civilization.

f_jaadekelardm_0545677.jpg

Some tourists say: “Perhaps the best way we can illustrate Iranian generosity is to ask you to think of how often, in your travels in other countries, have you been invited in to people’s homes to eat with their family?” Fortunately, or unfortunately, Iranians love other people, specially the westerners ! A British woman writes: “You really can’t get away from people talking to you in Iran, mostly its good, although the constant “hello, where are you from” from about every 5th person who passes you can get a bit frustrating. In Esfahan, one day I spent a couple of hours in the square trying to write postcards, I was very over talking to people after spending about an hour with a constant stream of people introducing themselves to me and talking to me abut Iran. I was trying to hide under tree’s and in corners but somehow people found me[!] Basically everywhere you go people invite for tea, stuff you with food and give you their phone number in case you get into any trouble. And the great difference in Iran is that it isn’t exclusively males that talk to you.”[4] It’s really the true image of Iranians. She also adds: “I was crossing the street at a busy intersection that has a little police kiosk, they have loudspeakers and are constantly talking to the traffic, once as I walked past, I heard “Hello” over the loud speaker”[4] And a German woman writes: “In Andimeshk, at the bus station I met a group of female university students. They asked the ever same question: Where are you from? Where are you going? Lucky I, one of the students was on her way to Shushtar, the same town that was my goal. I don’t know how I would have found my way around without her (Roya). Roya lead on and all I had to do was follow. In Shushtar, her father picked her up and the two of them dropped me off at my hotel. Smooth sailing all along. Not surprisingly, Roya declared that she would come to the hotel at 9am in the morning to show me around Shushtar. I didn’t ask for that, nor did she leave me much of an option to decline. Her English is minimal, but she has a translator function in her cell phone! She is pulling phrases out of that which helped us to communicate”[1]

daryasar_tonekabon.jpg

Do you know how many Iranians have seen the small town of Andimeshk or Shushtar? less than 5% ! But the majority of young girls and boys in these small towns, like other parts of Iran, are university students who are smarter and wiser than many stupid Iranian expats. In fact, Iran is full of university educated men and women, and the majority of Iranians are young, educated, and anti-Mullahs. The German woman adds: “In Shoushtar, I met four girls at the water shoots who wanted to talk to me. And within a few minutes I had an invitation to join them for lunch. They seemed prepared with a huge picnic basket which they had lugged here all the way from Ahvaz, where they were from. One of them spoke English and translated back and forth. How could I refuse an opportunity to hang out with some women? By now I knew the town better than they did and directed them to a courtyard in a beautifully restored Khouzestan villa. A huge tree shaded the yard. We sat, ate and chatted for a good two hours” [1] The world should know the true image of today’s Iran. Unfortunately, the Iranian baboons and the stupid Iranian expats and the western mass media talk nonsense about Iran, and mislead the non-Iranians. These stupid bastards are worthless mercenaries who kiss the Mullahs’ ass or the western politicians’ ass, or both asses. Iran’s regime will change soon, only because the majority of Iranians inside Iran are young and educated boys and girls who live like other parts of the modern world. The world should care about the young and modern Iranians inside Iran, and should boycott the Iranian baboons and the stupid Iranian expats who are worthless jerks. The German woman adds: “In Shush, Dazful, Andimeshk I could not see any satellite dishes on the rooftops. But they told me that they all have satellite dishes. Just not on their rooftops. If they were visible, the [Mullah] police would be knocking on their doors. So, everyone has it but nobody sees it. The old story: Put pressure on your kid, your students, your society and they will do exactly what you don’t want them to do behind your back, anyhow . What else is new? I am glad to hear that the Iranians are bypassing internet filters and are getting their hands on as much TV as they want” [1] It’s really true, and it’s the true image of today’s Iran.

An American tourist writes: “Iran wasn’t quite how I imagined it would be. A lot more developed, a lot more open, a lot more en mode. The people are very very curious; we had a full time job of answering the same question from strangers wherever we went: “Where you from?” and “what do you think of Iran?” We probably made more friends in Iran than in our entire journey elsewhere. Thanks to CouchSurfing (“CS”) -an online network of people volunteering to host travelers at their homes. It’s cultural integration through living with locals. We found the Irani community to be a very welcoming bunch, even for CS newbies like us who hardly have references from other CS members. Our most amazing experience was with our hosts in Tehran. They went out of their way to do things for us that really touched our hearts: checking schedules, booking tickets, printing maps, feeding us and packing a sandwich for our long overnight bus ride – all things we are eternally grateful for and will always remember. Meeting them for the first time was like meeting old friends (actually I don’t even think my friends would take care of us this well) and saying goodbye was tough. In Kerman, our hosts came to us with a big family welcome. Mama Sara fed us, spooning spatula after spatula of food, making sure our plates were always full and the rice or spaghetti pot empty. And here in Mashhad [the most religious city of Iran], our host wasn’t home when we arrived this morning but we didn’t wait in the cold. “Make yourself at home, the door-key is in the shoe” he told us over the phone. He even left his apartment in our care because he had to fly out tonight. “Stay as long as you like, just remember to switch off the gas and leave the keys when you go”. Speechless! The entire CS crew in Mashhad came out to meet us for dinner, what a pity we couldn’t stay longer. This type of hospitality is unheard of in the world I come from, where we learn to protect ourselves before helping others (covering your ass is the first lesson in surviving the corporate world). What a way to get under the skin of a country pounded by western media for all the wrong reasons”

As we said before, Iran has its own problems and stupidities. The Iranian hotels are among the stupidest things that the tourists can see in Iran. While many Iranian hotels have a building, decoration, or appearance like the western hotels, but their services, their prices, and their behaviors are among the worst in the world. It’s rare to find someone praises an Iranian hotel, but some praise an Inn in Tehran. Firouzeh is a cheap, old, and stupid Inn in Tehran’s cheapest area that is full of stores selling car parts ! Even Afghans or rural Iranians don’t go to an Inn like Firouzeh, but many western tourists call it “Hotel” and praise it !, because Lonely Planet recommends it! and because it has a good service. A German tourists writes: “Lonely Planet was right on the mark by recommending this hotel because of Mousavir’s one man show. Firouzeh is a 40 year old unremarkable, no star hotel in a loud Southern neighborhood [near Tehran Bazaar ! In fact, it’s a Guest House in AmirKabir St.] It has nothing but its low price going for it. But Mousavi turns it into something more valuable than any four star hotel by going beyond caring about his guest’s welfare. He will act as your travel agent making endless phone calls on your behalf, or as your bank when you need money and the banks are closed. When I told Mousavi that I was leaving per bus to Hamadan, he arranged for a taxi, found out that there is a special VIP bus station, made and confirmed the reservation, called me in the taxi to make sure we were on our way (he was not yet at work) and since we were running late due to heavy traffic, he called the bus company from home instructing them to wait for me! Wow! I have never had service like that“[1]. In
TripAdvisor.com, the tourists write: “Mousavi greeted us every morning with a smile. The staff was efficient, friendly and also greeted … The breakfast is good -ask for fried eggs instead of boiled- they taste divine … Mousavi is the Kindest and most helpful hotel manager in all of Iran. In fact, the best I’ve ever experienced”. The stupid managers of many Iranian hotels and Iranian businesses should learn from Mousavi that has a stupid and old Guest House in a very stupid location in Tehran. They should know that if they try to not be greedy and stupid, it would be better for themselves, their business, and their reputation. The beautiful hotels and Inns of Tehran should treat the tourists well, like this stupid and old Inn in a very stupid and dirty area of Tehran. The stupid prices and the stupid services of many Iranian hotels are really shameful and only disgrace Iran’s hotels.

Unfortunately many know nothing about the differences between Iran’s regime and Iran’s people. They only listen to the western mass media’s bullshits. It’s really shameful. Some even insult Iranians, and those who try to be nice and rude, say: “Iranians are nomadic tribes and have nomadic roots”! The main source of this misunderstanding is that many don’t read history. Those who talk nonsense about Persia and many other parts of the world, don’t know that the story of civilization began in 10,000 or 15,000 years ago, not in 500 years ago ! And that’s why some funny Iranian nationalists say: “When your ancestors lived like animals and were barbarian tribes, our ancestors had big cities and a great civilization in Persia. Read history and then you would know who were barbarian and who had civilization”. The people should read history, specially books that have been written by the western scholars, and then they would know how Europeans and other nations lived in the past. As you know, the first humans lived a nomadic life, but after the first ages, they started agriculture and created cities and become civilized. And there is no doubt that the Persians became civilized thousands years before the westerners and many other nations. Only in the past 300 years, the west was more modern than Persia. A British tourist writes: “Yazd is officially the oldest continually inhabited city in the world. Which makes it pretty damn old. Yazd was a different world. It was quiet and brown, very brown. The city is also home to some Zoroastrian sites, a religion that was the first monolithic religion in the world and thought to influence a lot of following religions -including Christianity” [4] In fact, those who talk nonsense about Persia are two groups: (1) Ignorant, unaware, or uneducated people (2)Bastards and those who often talk nonsense and tell big lies. The first group can easily read history and educate themselves. But the second group has not any solution, maybe except going to a mental hospital and resting for a while

UK Strikes, “Divide & Rule”, and 1970s

December 2, 2011

“Trade unions have said that up to two million public sector workers walked out in protest against changes to their pensions. Thousands of hospital operations were postponed and about two thirds of state schools shut. Around Scotland, tens of thousands of teachers, nurses, civil servants and council workers took part in scores of rallies. In total, up to 300,000 are estimated to have taken action”, the media reported yesterday. But the British politicians try to play games. “Health unions and the Department of Health (DH) are locked in a war of words tonight over the strikes’ impact on the NHS. The DoH say just 79,000 health service personnel were not at work, some 4.5% of the total workforce at hospitals, ambulance services and NHS Direct in England. Nonsense, say the unions, who claim that 400,000 NHS staff took action. Health secretary Andrew Lansley tonight claimed that while some services were disrupted, some hospitals saw little difference to normal. “It is good news that the number of people striking in the NHS is lower than we anticipated (20% absence rate),” he said. “I am pleased that so many NHS staff, have decided to put patients first”. The British politicians try to play with public opinion, but there is a good solution for NHS staff and all workers in the emergency services in Britain: “Instead of strike, they can stop providing their service to all British politicians and all British authorities !” In this way, they only f-u-c-k the politicians !, not the ordinary people

It’s very funny that the British actions, rallies, strikes, etc are mainly held in the last months of the year, specially in December. Last year, the student protests had the same situation. Some funny Iranians say: “It’s a dirty trick; It’s what the British authorities want. They want to prevent a long and continuous protest or action. The last days or months of the year is the best time for the limited protests. After the new year’s holidays and new year’s plans, many people forget their protests! The UK riots in 2011, was one of the main exception, and that’s why the world saw one of the greatest riots in the UK.” But at time, the British politicians used a very old and dirty trick “Divide and Conquer”. Some Iranians say: “A group of British protesters are in the streets now, but at that time (during the UK riots), they were in their homes and did not supported others! At that time, all Britons could organize a very big peaceful protest against their stupid government, but the British politicians could deceive and manipulate the people by the British media and their ‘Divide and Rule’ policies“. The current strike was the public sector strike and only the pensioners were active there. But the students, the private sector, and many other groups of the ordinary Britons did not support the protests. “I don’t work in the public sector and so won’t be striking”, many stupid Britons say. And it’s exactly what the British politicians want

The British politicians are succeed in their evil plans and their “Divide and Rule” tactics, because many people are naive or stupid, and because the British media can control public opinion. Of course, many Britons are wise and can see the real problems, but they are not in the majority. The British comments in the British media are interesting: “I’m not striking today because I work in the private sector [!!!] and my company would go bust if we were to strike. The left wing Union bosses want to take on the Government because they are Tories [!!!] complete madness … Even if England is heading for its biggest strike in 30 years, there’ll still be fewer people than were at the royal wedding …You have to laugh. The Government gave everyone a paid day off for the Royal wedding and that didn’t cost a penny, but a day of strike action (unpaid) will cost the economy £500m. Hahahaha … The response of the Labour Party to the strike is disgraceful. The party was set up to give political representation to working people in parliament. By refusing to support this completely justifiable action they have failed in their duty and have driven opposition to this government onto the streets … When will people just accept the fact that you’re going to get fucked by the government? The cabinet is full of millionaires who couldn’t give a toss about the plebs … I support the strike, and hope private sector workers realise they should demand the right to a decent pension more dignified old age too .. As a private sector employee I support the public sector strikes 100%. The BBC = Broadcast By Conservatives”. And some wise Iranians say: “Do you know when the current problems of the UK, the US, and the whole west will be solved? when the stupid and naive people would not be in the majority”

“Britain had the biggest day of industrial unrest since the 1978 Winter of Discontent”, the media reported. In fact, the current public sector strike in the UK and the current economic conditions in the whole west is like the 1970s. “In the annals of British postwar history, the 1970s have always had a special place as the awful decade, a time of economic stagnation, industrial unrest and a squeeze on real incomes. Today we have the same situation. In today’s prices, a couple with no children would have had real disposable income of £437.35 a week in 2002-03, and if the economy pans out as the independent Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) expects, such a couple will have £432.99 a week to play with in 2015-16. Until now, the worst 10-year period for living standards in postwar Britain was the period bookended by the David Bowie albums Aladdin Sane in 1973 and Let’s Dance in 1983. It covered the big recession in 1974-75″, the media reported. As you probably know, the UK, the US and the whole west were in a deep shit in the 1970s. But the 1970s is a very important era for Iranians, too. Do you know what happened in 1970s and how the west saved itself? In 1970s, the UK and the US with the help of other western countries toppled the Shah in Iran and made the Mullah regime with the help of stupid Iranians

uk-strike-1-800.jpg

As we said before, the West considered the Shah as a threat to the economic stability of the world and the responsible of the inflation and economic crisis of 1970s. After 1974, the West saw the Shah as an ambitious man who increased the oil price and did not obey them as before. They wanted to get rid of him. But the Shah was a stupid and weak person. William Sullivan wrote: “Once the Shah asked me, with astonishment, what has he done wrong with the US that the CIA wants to topple him? then the Shah added that he can understand the root of the UKs hostility towards himself, but he can not understand the roots of the USs hostility. In my next meetings with the Shah, he never talked about this issue or complained of our contacts with the Mullahs, but instead he often asked me What are your Mullah friends doing?! We finally could make contacts with Ayatollah Beheshti (Khomeinis senior advisor). The Shah said to me and Parsons, the UK ambassador in Iran, that he is sick and wants to resign and crowns his son king of Iran. After the UK refused to accept the Azhari cabinet, our mutual meeting with Shah was cancelled. In another meeting with the Shah, I informed him about what our agent was going to tell Khomeini. The Shah listened carefully, and then asked me to inform him of the result of our negotiation with Khomeini”


Iran Tour Guide: Shomal and Unseen Facts

December 1, 2011

The non-Iranians know nothing about Iran (Persia). The western mass media tell lie about Iran and Iranians. Many know nothing about the differences between Iran’s regime and Iran’s people. When the tourists go to Iran, in the best case, they have a “Lonely Planet” book and have a little knowledge about Iran’s history and some ancient cities in Iran, but their knowledge about today’s Iran and many other things is zero. We have not read “Lonely Planet” book about Iran, but we checked their website. What they say about many things in Iran is not true. Of course, many believe they are the best available source for the tourists, and it’s not wrong. So, we decide to write a series of articles, “Iran Tour Guide”, about Iran, Iranians and their culture. In this series, that can be called “A Guide to Iran and Iranian Culture”, we want to write about the unseen facts that non-Iranians can’t find in “Lonely Planet” and other sources. It can complete what we have already written about Iranians and their culture (check Archive). Unfortunately, non-Iranians know nothing about the difference between Iran’s regime and Iran’s people. Only when they go to Iran, they see the truth. A tourist writes: “Its just really interesting to see how much Iranians do not support the government here. The regime here tries to isolate Iran, with internet filters, and tv/newspaper restrictions, but everyone gets around it. And though I knew Iran wouldnt be this closed off conservative society its really surprising how much. Iran really does have a crazy mix of Western and Persian culture. Unlike other parts of the Middle East where the government dont impose regulations, but society is very conservative, here in Iran its the opposite, with a ridiculously conservative government and a society [that is very modern] doing whatever they want“[4] It’s exactly what the western mass media tell lie about it. In addition, many tourists know nothing about the natural beauties of Iran. They only know some ancient cities in Iran, and know nothing about Shomal, the green part of Iran. We have already written about Iran’s maps and the beauties and problems of Shomal, the north part of Iran. Iranians love Shomal. Many Iranians have seen Shomal, but they only have heard about the other parts of Iran. But the non-Iranians only know the central Iran, or the western, eastern, or southern Iran, but Shomal (the northern Iran) that its jungles have a very long history (before the Ice Age) and its cities are among the ancient cities of the world, is totally unknown to them.

The non-Iranians really know nothing about Shomal and its beauties, and of course about the tragedy of Iranian beaches in the Mullah era that we have already written about it (check Archive). A German tourist writes: “We left Tabriz into northern direction to hit the Caspian Sea, which we were very curious to see. Beach, swimming[!], fresh air, delicious oriental food -some kind of these thoughts were circling in our heads. After a damn long drive over the Alborz mountains, we made it to the coast, but we were mostly disappointed of its appearance. The hole 750 km of Iran’s coastline was completely overcrowded and overloaded with buildings or remainings of those. Because we didn’t find a place to park the car at the seaside [they traveled by their own car (a van)]. We spent the night in a very poor looking area with little houses, and dreamed about upcoming adventures. The next morning we were pretty surprised, when an Iranian lady came by to our car knocking at the door. First of all, we were annoyed by her waking us up, but we soon realized that she was holding a breakfast on a plate (tea, biscuits, fruits etc.) right in front of her. Of course, we kindly opened up and the woman warmly invited us into her house for lunch . After another night at the Caspian Sea we headed back south, again through the Alborz mountains, to make it to Tehran. When we arrived, it was an Iranian celebration day (Nowruz, 13-Bedar). Tehran, a city of approx. 15 Million people, was like dead, as all the people went out into the nearby mountains for vacation and all shops were closed.” [2] Apparently, these tourists knew nothing about Nowruz, and also about Shomal and this fact that they could spend their whole trip in Shomal and enjoy its natural beauties, historical sites, and delicious foods. It’s exactly what many Iranians do. But maybe “Lonely Planet” has not written anything about this matter and this great part of Iran! We advise the tourists to travel to Iran like Iranians. At least they should know Shomal as much as they know the ancient and famous cities of Yazd, Kerman, Shiraz, Esfahan, Kashan, Kermanshah, Hamedan, etc. Many Iranians have not seen Yazd or Kerman, but they have seen Shomal.

Almost all non-Iranians write about the generosity and hospitality of Iranians, and it’s really interesting. Iranians have a very friendly behavior towards tourists and non-Iranians, specially Europeans and Americans. A German woman writes: “It was New Years Eve in Iran and we had very nice encounters with the locals in Esfahan. We had just left the Royal square (Naghshe Jahan Sq), but when we heard all that noise, we turned around. We split up and within a few minutes each of us was engaged in conversation with some Iranians. It really is striking how quickly contacts are made when you walk around alone as a non-native. I saw a young couple taking pictures of each other and I offered to take a picture of both of them. From there it went: First she wanted her picture taken with me, then he with me. Before long, another couple joined us who wanted to ask me a few questions and wanted to film me. And before I knew it, the original couple offered me their miniature Noruz table display, which they had brought along for decoration,as a gift! I rejected and rejected, and then accepted it. Now we had to exchange names and I was scrambling for a gift to give them in return. At last I found a Michigan button with a pin and explained that I was German, but was working in Michigan. That pleased them very much, especially when I explained, that all the gifts from Iran will become teaching material for my students. Again, I was overwhelmed by the generosity and warmth of total strangers. I had walked into this square with nothing and walked out with a gift box in hand!” [1] Iranian generosity and hospitality are really among the best in the world, but the stupid western mass media talk nonsense about Iranians, and mislead the non-Iranians. They don’t say that the Mullahs and the Islamists are very hated figures in Iran, and Iranians hate them. They don’t speak about the differences between Iran’s people and Iran’s regime; And it’s really shameful.

A Swedish tourist writes: “When we reached the beautifully lit Khaju Bridge (in Esfahan) we got invited to share a picnic with a family in the grassy slopes. Before we knew it we were in a cab towards their home, where we all danced in their living room. In lack of typical Swedish dancing I tried my Pulp Fiction moves. Judging from their faces they had never seen anything more weird in their entire lives. A great evening” [3] It’s really the true meaning of Iranian life and how Iranians live in Iran. The image of Iran that is drawn by the stupid western mass media is so unreal and so shameful. And it makes Iranians angry. A German woman writes: “The taxi driver looked at me and said: Welcome to my city. This is one of two things I hear in just about every store, office, bank, internet café and even on the street. The other is a question: What do you think of Iran? Iranians know very well, how their country and their leaders are viewed abroad. As this is vastly unjust towards them, they try to make up for it by extending themselves in every possible way and they ask your opinion hoping to hear a positive answer [in fact, they want to know whether you are ignorant or not! and do you know the differences between Iran’s regime and Iran’s people?]” [1]. She also adds: “Akbar, that I met him and his wife (Parvin) at the airport, has been calling just about every day to make sure I am OK. Mahsa, with whom I explored Hamadan yesterday, has been calling twice already to make sure I dont need any help. I really dont need any help and I wont get lost and I am OK. I might just have to turn the phone off” [1] I think what she has written is so clear and so meaningful, and of course so tragic. It’s the story of the western ignorance, and how Iranians are victims of the western hypocrisy and the western stupidity, and how the hypocrite western mass media tell big lies about Iran and Iran’s people.

The tourists taste the generosity and hospitality of Iranians since the first moments of their trips. A German tourist writes: “In Airplane, I sat next to a couple from Iran: Akbar and Parvin. After about ½ the flight we started to talk. Both spoke English. As it turns out, they had a car parked at the airport and offered to take me back to town with them. What a relief. Akbars son runs a four star hotel. He offered to get me the special family rate. Instead of $120 to $160 per room it would only be $80. I had to politely decline and explain that with 3.5 months of travel my budget is more around $20-40 per night. A no-star hotel was needed. He kindly called my Lonely Planet pick and reserved a room for me. Both also invited me to their summer home near Estfahan during the New Year festival, Nowruz. That might be an offer I wont turn down. But then, there will be two of us. Nicola from London will be joining me during that time. So, I think I will decline once again. But then they offered to have me over for dinner tomorrow. I accepted. Akbar insisted on coming into the hotel with me to make sure that everything was fine. He paid the clerk 50,000 Rials as a down payment no matter how much I protested. This tops even the level of kindness and help I experienced in Syria” [1] This kind of hospitality is quite normal among Iranians, but non-Iranians know nothing about it. Of course, everywhere has its own problems. Some Iranians, specially the Islamists and the salesmen, are stupid and charlatan, but when we talk about Iranians, we mean the majority of ordinary Iranians, and the general mood that you can see in Iran. I also should add that many Iranians are nosy, and many play games with each others. In addition, some Iranians are not very kind to each others; they are only kind to non-Iranians ! It’s shameful, but it can be understandable when you see, because of the Mullahs and the Islamic regime, Iranians can not trust each others, and they are frightened of the Mullah informants and the Iranian hypocrite bastards who work for the Mullah regime or are psychotic charlatan. But non-Iranians know nothing about the problems of Iranians in the Mullah regime, and also about the old and rich culture and civilization of Iran.

The German woman adds: “After Akbar left my hotel, it took no more than 10 minutes when he called the hotel back to ask if I was hungry. He was going to come back and take me to their house to eat! I could only insist that I was completely filled from the meal we had gotten at the airplane and there was absolutely no need for them to turn around in this heavy traffic. Wow! What a welcome to Iran” [1]. All Iranians know that this sort of hospitality is quite normal among Iranians. In fact, it’s part of Iranian culture. But many non-Iranians know nothing about Persia, its nice people, and its old and rich culture. The Iranian generosity and hospitality are independent of where you meet Iranians inside Iran. In the small towns or big cities, in the poor or rich areas, or in the rural or urban areas you always can find the Iranian generosity and hospitality, and we would write more about it later. The tourists should see the unseen beauties of Iran and Iranians, by seeing the ordinary people, and by seeing Shomal and its natural beauties in cities like Ramsar, Masouleh, Abbas Abbad, Rasht, Kelardasht, Tonekabon, Sarri, etc. For example, the historical town of Masooleh (above picture), has an attractive nature and a wonderful architecture with an antiquity of more than 2000 years. It is situated at a distance of 60 km from Rasht, capital of Gilan province, and 1050 m above the Caspian sea. From the architectural point of view, Masouleh is unique in the world, so that the yard of a house is the roof of another one. There are many beautiful and ancient cities in Shomal. Ramsar and Kerlardasht are two of them, that like almost all parts of Shomal, have many green mountains, green roads, jungles, green valleys, waterfalls, rivers, springs, etc that have created a very beautiful and eye-catching natural landscape. But unfortunately the tourists don’t know Shomal, and many other things in Iran. When you read their blogs or travel dairies, you can find many wrong and stupid things; and it’s a result of western media’s lies about Iran. We would write more about this matter later.

[The pictures that you see here, are the pictures of Shomal]
