In Solidarity with the Iranian People
July 9, 2009
The anniversary of the 18
Iranian Students National Uprising, is once again upon us. The 18th
of Tir (July 9th) has become a symbolic struggle and resistance against
the tyrannical, totalitarian and barbaric Islamic regime in Iran. The
very brave and courageous freedom loving Iranians have been challenging
the very fabric of the Islamofascists in Iran. In a show of solidarity,
both in Iran and abroad, Iranian people have demanded a total
annihilation of this totalitarian state of Islamic barbarity and terror,
which lacks even the most basic human compassion and human rights.
The flowers of victory will once again blossom and the celebration of
life over death will begin. But until then, we must struggle against
fanaticism with all our strength. We must end poverty, ignorance,
disease and the inequality of opportunity. At this crossroad in history,
we must pledge our dedication to the service of Iran and freedom for all
Iranians. Iranian people must become masters of their own destiny.
Islamic Republic has been the major sponsor of domestic and global
terrorism for the past 30 years. In addition, the Islamic Republic has
been sponsoring terrorist groups in the Middle East such as Hezbollah
and Hamas and those who have bombed

Islamic Republic’s leaders have used a multitude of tactics to
circumvent decisive international action. They have used everything in
their power to silence the Iranian people at home and abroad. Inside
Iran, they use executions, public hangings, torture, maiming and many
more inhumane punishments. Abroad, they have assassinated hundreds of
Today, Iran is perhaps the only nation in the world where the
overwhelming majority of its citizens (more than ninety-percent,
according to an unofficial poll) oppose the clerics. This explains why
tens of thousands of Iranians have been imprisoned, tortured or executed
by the current Islamic regime. Regrettably, for the past 30 years, the
European countries have taken an appeasement policy, and Russia and
China have directly supported the Islamists in Iran and have built its
massive terror machines. This alone, has impeded the efforts by the
Iranians in Iran to unseat the regime in Tehran.
Today, the Islamic Republic has absolutely no legitimacy whatsoever.
Students and workers are protesting in Tehran and across Iran, by the
thousands on a routine basis. The middle class have expressed their
disgust with the regime by voting, in every so-called election, for the
most anti-regime candidate on the ballot. Of course, by boycotting the
last election (selection) resulted in a fanatical person, Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad. Yet, this is still not a fair battle. The mullahs possess
all the money and power, the people are still hungry and poor, and
dissidents have been unable to come together for their common goals.
the past 30 years, the world has maintained its silence in reporting the
truth of the Iranian dilemma. They have engaged in doing huge business
with the killers of the innocent Iranians. The world adamantly and
shamefully ignored the aspirations of more than 90-Percent of the
Iranians whose only demands were freedom, justice, liberty and equality
in Iran. Iranians have been betrayed by giant oil cartels and money
hungry, opportunists and backstabbing nations.
the leaders of the free world: On June 12, 2009, the Iranians
overwhelmingly said No to Ahmadinejad and No to Ali Khamenei. Today,
Iranian's most fundamental rights are systematically and brutally
violated. You no longer can remain silent. If you believe the Iranian
people deserve freedom and true democracy, and deserve to take their
future into their own hands, then join us. You can redeem yourselves by
ceasing doing business with the Islamic terrorists in Iran.
Iran must be free and she will be. You need to know we will not
events of 18 Tir, 1999 have created a bitter taste toward the Islamic
oppressors. A. D. Benoist said, "The highest measure of democracy is
neither the 'extent of freedom' nor the 'extent of equality', but rather
the highest measure of participation." We need you to make time to come
out and participate in these gatherings over and over again.
In the past, one of the major hurdles in achieving full democracy and
the rule of law in Iran has come from the self-interest and people who
have been attempting to plunder the society for their own personal gain.
It should not be the same scenario today. If we desire to achieve
freedom and remain free then we need to avoid self-interest and work for
our national interest and in the spirit of teamwork.
Knowing what we all know, the onus remains on us, the true Iranian
patriots, to set aside our differences and UNITE our forces, once and
for all, for the purpose of liberating Iran and conducting a healthy and
fair referendum under the watchful eye of the international community.
each of us assume a personal responsibility for the success of this
endeavor. No bystanders. No snipers from the sidelines. Every one of us
needs to be a fully engaged participant in this great battle of hearts
and minds and ideas. Let us stop talking about unimportant issues and
peripheral concerns. Let us concentrate our efforts to bring down this
foreign enemy in Iran, the Islamofascists. The survival of the Iranian
nation and its identity depends upon it.
beings cannot create an ideal world of peace and tranquility under
totalitarian, despotic and tyrannical regimes, such as the Islamist
regime in Iran. Individual freedoms would be brutally repressed. The
individual would be at the mercy of the merciless despots.
Based upon the general reaction among Iranian opposition groups, it is
clear that the time has come to form a new brand of political
opposition; a united force whose sole propose will be a regime change in
Iran and the establishment of the rule of law. My reference to political
opposition should in no way be confused with the egotistic,
antagonistic, confrontational political activism kind of politics that
thrives on lies, segregation, and deception. I am honored to align
myself with the new visionaries that are politically matured,
disciplined and truly nationalistic.
opinion, an organized opposition could play a critical role in bringing
about a regime change in Iran sooner than we had imagined. These
initiatives would weaken the Islamic Republic’s fabric from inside and
outside and will give hope to millions of hopeless Iranians.
fellow compatriots, we must have vision. Vision is never about seeing
the obvious. It's about looking ahead; it is about seeing what is not
there -- YET. It's often about seeing the potential behind the obvious.
If we want to see what is really going on, we will need to learn to spot
what is not there, and then act on it. The clock is ticking and our
indecisiveness could cost us dearly. We all may have outstanding
eyesight, but how's our vision?
us emphasize that revolutions are successful only when they succeed in
replacing a totalitarian state with a democratic state, not creating
another oppressing dictatorship. We need to create a government which
will secure greater personal freedom and liberty for all Iranians, a
government which moves, decidedly, away from dictatorship and proceeds,
confidently, towards democracy.
Elements of revolution have already started to come together and have
yet to reach their full stature. Not one act but a process, revolution
never develops in a straight line. It goes through numerous phases and
stages. As we move forward in implementing this important demonstration,
we are determined to establish a grassroots organization which,
effectively, monitors and supports the ongoing efforts to find the best
way to initiate new freedoms. Behind all events, behind all movements,
behind all unrest and all revolutions, there have always been great
driving forces. The driving force should be our passion for a larger
freedom and liberty and the rule of law in our homeland.
My fellow compatriots and people of the world, once again I call upon
all of you to be united with our Iranian brothers and sisters in Iran on
July 9th, on the anniversary of the 1999 student uprising. We must
continue to support them until every Iranian is free. I ask you
to support their aspirations for a self-rule and their expectations for
an era of peace, freedom, prosperity and independence. My fellow
Iranians, this is no longer a choice; it is simply a duty and an
obligation as an Iranian.
