IRAN’s Treacherous Few
 
The message of the People of Iran to Obama is: ‘Don’t be a Sucker’ press on with ‘Regime Change’ in Iran and Syria as they are both finished

By Freydoon Khoie

Throughout history, treacherous few in every country have always stabbed their own people in the back and worked with, and for, the enemy. Iran is no exception. Britain, Russia, France, and even Germany have long established a network of paid traitors in Iran to serve them in return for personal gains. These treacherous few lie, cheat, misguide and deceive our people only to protect their own interest and the interest of their masters. This is particularly prevalent in third world countries like Khamnei’s Iran in which chaos and criminality and insecurity is the rule and not the exception which is why the coward and the treacherous few find solace and security in the bosom of their foreign masters. You can listen to Khamnei’s Friday prayer harangues for twenty years and never hear him say an unkind word about Britain or Russia, the two countries that has done the greatest damage to Iran’s national interest and progress in the last 300 years, yet he never misses attacking the U.S. or Israel who had actually done us no wrong. Even the infamous 1953 coup against Prime Minster Mosadeq was a British idea. You can listen to the few hundred illiterate hooligans and yesterday’s street fighters, residing in the so called present Parliament and see how they never mention a negative word about any of the major crimes committed by Britain and Russia, France and Germany against our national interest in the last hundred years, but they never fail to repeat their ‘death to America and death to Israel slogan' the two countries who have done us no wrong and even helped Iran in every possible way when allowed.

If we take a closer look at the business activities of top merchants in Iran we will note that they have a preference in doing business with the countries that the treacherous few are in favor of.

The same treacherous few in the service of Khamnei’s evil regime are very busy these days buying Champaign in Washington, New York, London, Berlin and Paris thinking that they have been able to deceive the Americans and the world opinion by just putting up a new face like Rouhani and release a dozen miserable political prisoners from dungeons after years of torture, and thus everything is going to be fine. Sanctions will be lifted, U.S. government will agree to normalize relations and give legitimacy to an unquestionably evil and illegitimate regime and the Mullahs can go on repressing, raping, looting Iranians and get away with it because now they have been officially graced by the U.S. recognition of their evil regime that has brought nothing but 34 years of social, economic and political disaster for the people of Iran.

The list of these treacherous few are long but you will see them on television channels, websites, weblogs as technocrats, bureaucrats, facilitators, providers of logistics, journalists, lobbyists, promoters, preachers, even assassins and spies. They come in every shape, color and form like (AIC) American Iranian Council, or (NIAC) National Iranian American Council, or the terrorist organization like PMK and the list goes on and on. The men and women running these chicken feed groups have no honor, no morals, no ethics, no integrity, no self-respect, no back bone, no devotion to principle, no loyalty to their land of birth, no scruples, but only a gluttonous and unending appetite for their own degenerate self.

If you look at the list of the ministers in the Khamnei’s regime in the last 34 years you will find these treacherous elements there. How could someone like Yazdi, or Bani Sadr, Khatami or Rouhani, who studied in France, Britain, Germany or the United States and observed the beauty and majesty of human dignity, or value of personal liberty, grace in freedom of religion, joy in equality of genders, the natural right of free pen and speech, rule of law and equality before the law, and come back to Iran and agree to work with, and for, an evil regime like Khomaini’s that is the very personification of evil that goes diametrically against the very grain of what they have learned in the west? How could Zarif or Kharazi, Zangeneh, or Khatami, and hundreds of hundreds of these treacherous men and women who lived years in Western Europe and the United States work for and defend a regime that has brutally and violently repressed and continue to do so, the most fundamental human rights of the people of Iran? How could any sane and honorable human being have an agreeable thing to say about Khamnei and his criminal regime and go on and talk about the regime, its trappings and its parliament as though they are talking about a decent form of government that has been legitimately elected by the governed, and is functioning in the interest of our people?

The constitution of the Islamic republic is a fraudulent document that leaves no room for genuine democracy let alone human rights, human dignity and the wholly forgotten inalienable rights of Man. It is a fraudulent document designed to portray legitimacy or a legal facade to a totally illegitimate, undemocratic, violator of human dignity and outright criminal regime.

So to even begin to contemplate that this regime can be reformed and can become acceptable to the people of Iran just because they have released a dozen or so of innocent political prisoners out of thousands of thousands who were arrested, beaten, tortured, imprisoned and murdered for decades, or because they now have a smiling mouthpiece claimed to be a ‘moderate butcher’ rather than a foul mouth hooligan butcher like his predecessor is the proof of how insanely naïve the Americans and much of the world have become!

Khamnei’s regime in Iran is not a government but an occupation force that has taken over Iran and is brutally repressing our people, while pretending to be a government. No one is safe in Iran and the revolutionary guards, read thugs, and their partners in crime, the Baseej militia thugs, are acting like an occupation army, treating the Iranian citizens like an enemy under occupation. Take a close look at this picture which is a drop of the ocean of pictorial evidence of the atrociously criminal conduct and behavior of the Khamnei’s regime and its treatment of the people of Iran. The picture is one of many routine assaults on a given neighborhood to forcefully confiscate people’s satellite dishes.     
And look how they are using armored carrier just as any occupying army would do, coming to encounter a hostile population. This is because they are an occupying force and they are expecting to be attacked by the people who consider them the enemy of the people and not a legitimate government. Look how the satellite dishes are gathered in the street and look at the revolutionary thug standing on top of the armored carrier with an air of superiority over an unarmed civilian population in a peaceful residential neighborhood where people are going on with their miserable lives under occupation and in a closed, horrifically depressing society in which their satellite dish is their only window to an distant free world of joyful entertaining, but even this little joy is to be taken away by the evil regime for fear of being exposed.

They confiscate the satellite dishes because the regime is foolish enough to believe that by doing so it can be the only source of information for the population in this digital age that every teenager with a mobile phone has access to more information than the regime’s ministry of information has. But the regime insist to push through its version of information which is based on lies, deceptions, and baseless propaganda and boring religious sermons that have driven the people of Iran to utter disgust for everything that is called Shia and Islam and religion and that is why they buy the satellite dishes to give their innocent and neglected young children a sample of joyful moments of music, color and happiness which is considered a crime under the Khamnei’s regime.

So the message of the pro-democracy people of Iran to President Obama is, for God’s sake ‘don’t be a sucker’ and stay the course and press on with regime change, openly, unequivocally and unconditionally and by doing so turn the entire nation of Iran into a lifelong American friends. Of course we cannot ask the same from our British and French and German friends because they have already sold their souls to the devil and have become partners in crime with the Mullahs. Our message to President Obama is that the conniving Mullahs guided and sponsored by the treacherous few are licking your hands only because they know that the time is up and the economic, political and diplomatic sanctions has taken its toll and they have very little time left to the inevitable and destined day of reckoning when the people of Iran will rise up and say enough is enough and bring about an implosion that will make the 1979 revolution and the 2009 pro-democracy demonstrations look like a picnic.

The national mandate is complete abolition of the Islamic Republic Constitution, dismantling of revolutionary guards and baseej militia, and the national army to take over the national security and maintenance of law and order so that the people of Iran can hold a free, fair, and internationally observed elections to choose a constituent assembly to write a new constitution that guarantees the separation of religion from state, and enshrine the undeniable fact that freedom of religion and conscience, freedom of speech, press, assembly are amongst the inalienable rights of every Man and every Woman in Iran and the future parliaments may not have the right to make any laws in respect of these rights. And from there on, the people of Iran, shall begin building a new, open, modern, civilized, and friendly Iran and join the free and democratic family of nations and lead our tired planet one step closer to a free, prosperous and a peaceful world.
