Not the people, the bloody government, if this report is true where does the governments legitimacy come from?
As the Iranian authorities warned the opposition on Tuesday that they would tolerate no further protests over the disputed June 12 presidential elections, a report emerged of the hangings of six supporters of defeated candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi.
These bastards have reportedly hung 6 people for the terrible crime of wanting a fair election.
Id like to state the candidate they are rallying around is by no means a “western style” liberal either, having been a henchman of Khomeni.
So when the UN, Obama, Rudd and Co say they deplore the overthrow of Saddams regime as it was a terrible act of overthrowing a “sovereign nation”, just think about what that means. The regime in Iran just defrauded millions of people, then used extreme violence, including beatings and murder to break up rallies to protest against this. In addition to using the police and paramilitary units they are now using their “legal” system to carry out state sanctioned murder of political opponents.
This is a regime with no legitimacy. They are murdering their own citizens for supporting the wrong candidate.
So as far as the world is concerned sovereignty falls to whomever is prepared to slaughter its own citizens to maintain political power.
I go to the UNs news page, what do you think the subject of all 5 “leading articles are? I found nothing on the UN’s own site (Im sure there’s been a report produced somewhere in the bowels of that institution)
What a fucking surprise, dirt eating scum that they are.
As for Obama, well how scathing can he be?
The Iranian government must understand that the world is watching. We mourn each and every innocent life that is lost. We call on the Iranian government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people. The universal rights to assembly and free speech must be respected, and the United States stands with all who seek to exercise those rights.
As I said in Cairo, suppressing ideas never succeeds in making them go away. The Iranian people will ultimately judge the actions of their own government. If the Iranian government seeks the respect of the international community, it must respect the dignity of its own people and govern through consent, not coercion.
Martin Luther King once said – “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” I believe that. The international community believes that. And right now, we are bearing witness to the Iranian peoples’ belief in that truth, and we will continue to bear witness.
Oh good, meaningless platitudes, while the bodies of those afforded “dignity” swing in the wind…
How about Kevvie waxman?
Bugger all, he hedged a little by saying the “apparent re-election”, but has otherwise been quiet. (funny, you think an ex-diplomat might have an opinion)
And from the Iranian embassy here in Australia?
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hassan Qashqavi on Saturday strongly condemned the recent statement issued by G-8 states on Iran s presidential elections describing the move as meddlesome and hasty.
Qashqavi recalled that some 85 percent of eligible voters took part in a lawful, free and competitive presidential election which was regarded as a turning point in a religious-democratic country, a vital fact which is non-existent in democratic societies of the West.
Over the past 30 years, some 30 democratic and fair elections have been held in the country and the massive turnout in the country s presidential election is a good proof which indicates the trust of voters on the sound election mechanism in Iran, he said.
The people in the world were expecting the G-8 to adopt a proper stance in dealing with their problems, he said.
On recent meddlesome stance taken by the speaker of European parliament on developments in Iran, he said that Iran regards such acts as irresponsible and unacceptable and strongly condemns them.
The fact is the Iranian supervisory body, the Guardian Council as the legitimate entity is to hear the complaints lodged by candidates and the body has not yet finished its job, he said.
The upcoming visit by the European parliament speaker and his entourage to Tehran would be a positive move to help broaden parliamentary ties and cooperation between Iran and Europe but if they fail to meet the two side s mutual respect and interests it will not be fruitful, he said.
Referring to comments by the European parliament speaker, he said such visit under the current circumstances will not help broaden and uphold relations between the two sides and run counter to the spirit of friendship and mutual cooperation, he pointed out.
Iran calls for expansion of parliamentary relations and cooperation with European parliament based on mutual respect and interests, he said adding that the country is determined not to allow anyone to interfere in the country s internal affairs.
“If Hans-Gert Pottering is sincere in his comments on sense of responsibility by the European parliament on violation of human rights, essential freedoms, respect for dignity of humans, he should have supported innocent and defenseless people in Gaza while they were trapped by the savage and inhuman attacks of the Zionist occupiers,” Qashqavi said.
During mass killing of innocent people in Gaza, the European parliament failed to carry out its duties as expected by the world public opinion and its speaker, Hans-Gert Pottering, showed no interest in visiting the region to exert pressure on the Zionist occupiers or express sympathy with the oppressed people of Palestine, he said.
The Islamic Republic of Iran advises the European parliament to avoid misusing human values and principles and instead of meddling in the internal affairs of other countries, try to respect their rights based on international code of conduct, he said
Always with the Jews….always…
Heres the Iranian embassy here in Oz’s email address, Im sending them a query which will (more or less) invite them to blame the Zionists. It will be interesting to see if they bite.
Id hate to see people using the ambassadors email to send him email versions of flaming cat shit……not.
I am writing in relation to the reports in the western media of a significant unrest within Iran at the moment. There have been some fairly fantastic allegations made with relations to people being killed.
I would like to ask is much of this likely to be factual or just more warmongering spin from the western media?
I would draw your attention to this report in a Zionist newspaper. http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1246296541275&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull
I am loath to believe anything in that paper, however a confirmation from one of your staff as to the inaccuracy of this article would be appreciated.
Iran obviously has a right to enforce peace in its streets from violent protesters, that does not concern me. However I would be concerned if rioters were being executed after what must have been fairly hasty trials.
Any information you could give me would be appreciated.
Thank you, * *****.
Ps: Is there any indications as to who is funding or organizing these protests? They seem a little to well organized to be purely “spontaneous”.
Im off to have a shower now, writing that email made me feel….dirty… If I get a response Ill be sure to post it.
