The upcoming Election in Iran

By: Amil Imani

I read somewhere that "the whole story of the progress of human liberty shows that concessions yet made ... have been born of earnest struggle... If there is no struggle, there is no progress."

It is unconscionable to believe that any human being can be so cruel and an instrument of death and suffering to others! I believe all human beings are privileged to have liberty of life. Prejudiced, medieval-like actions must and should be eliminated in our Century. The pinnacle of cruelty must and should be obliterated in our new era. The only way to heal the conflict in the world, in society, is to heal it in our own minds, to tear the veil of separation, to terminate this mental delusion, once and for all.

Human beings are obliged to look forward to a brighter and more enlightening future and work hard to bring prosperity, not only to this generation, but also to the generations to come. That applies to all the sons and daughters of Adam and Eve, not just to a particular rich industrial section of this global village. In this world of ours, violence, hatred and conflict, have become part of our daily digestion. Man's incredible cruelty to his fellow man is beyond comprehension. Extraordinary suffering is inflicted upon millions to uphold mere beliefs, figments of one's imagination.

There are so many nations in this global village of ours that have been struggling, in many ways for centuries to reach the prosperity that most have enjoyed in Western nations. This divisive gap between the very rich and the very poor has never been clearer, to the entire world, than it is today. With the advent of the Internet, we have more accurate information on this calamity, this reality that we all live with, on a daily basis.

When many immigrants arrive at the port of New York, the first thing they want to see is the Statue of Liberty, and it is something beautiful. It is something extraordinary in the eyes of those people who have dreamed all their lives, of seeing this symbol of liberty. It represents what America must be and ought to be. It represents America, the land of the free, and the land of the brave.

This symbol hasn't changed in so many years. Now it means much more than a statue. Now, it is America and we must not allow the recent tragedies in New York to tarnish this magnificent symbol of love, justice, and liberty for all mankind.

America was founded on aspirations of liberty and justice for all. She is now a proud country with very a rich constitution that protects not only its own citizens, but whoever makes it to her shores. For that, we all must be grateful and thankful and struggle to keep it that way.

We understand that all forms of life start with struggle. We all know that the city of Rome was not built in one day. Similarly, people's liberty and freedom were not given to them simply because some ruler felt sorry for the masses. They were secured with many bloody revolutions, an inch at the time. That's how most countries have achieved their liberty and freedom.

Iran is a land of beauty and the land of love, but also a land of turmoil. At this critical crossroad in her history, this old nation, this cradle of human civilization and human rights, is sick and needs you. This very rich culture, which has given the world many great scientists, in all areas, unparalleled poets, such as Rumi, Ferdowsi, Hafez and Sad'i, needs you.

Iran has the youngest and brightest and the most educated population at this time in her history. Iranians, like many other nationalities, have been struggling to achieve the liberty and justice and freedom that are being enjoyed, mostly, in the western countries.

The illegitimate regime of Islamic Republic says NO to a population of 70 million. The illegitimate regime of Islamic Republic says NO to liberty to those people who have been struggling for hundreds of years. The Islamic Republic says NO to justice and NO to freedom and NO to peace and No to a free election. Ultimately, if Islamic Regime succumbs to the will of the 70 million Iranians, they will have to pack their terror instruments and leave, but they do not want to leave. "A fool is very dangerous when in power." Said, Denis Fonvizin

The Iranian people believe that "everyone has the right...to hold opinions without interference and to see, receive and impart information and ideas through any media, regardless of frontiers." The Iranian people would like to try and articulate the features of a free and fair election. The people of Iran would like to freely choose their own elected representatives, without the fear of being thrown into the cages of medieval Islamic terror masters.

The Islamic Republic, perhaps, is the only regime in the world whose leaders, whether reformists, or the fundamentalists, work, twenty-four hours a day, three hundred sixty-five days a year, against the will of the people. It is as though the sole purpose of this extremely brutal regime is to torture, antagonize, fabricate, lie, harass, arrest, murder, and intimidate the innocent citizens in the name of Islam.

Yes, life itself is a struggle. But the vast majority of Iranians are struggling, at this very moment, for their simple and basic human rights. It is up to you to stand up to your own governments and demand not to deal with some of the greatest terror masters, which this world has ever brought to our civilization.

Iranian people are asking you, the citizens of our world, convey their message, to your elected officials that they think "elections belong to the people. It is their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters", said, Abraham Lincoln

Ladies and gentlemen of the free world! We need your support and involvement now more than any other time in the history of our country. We need your support NOW. My fellow freedom loving people, "he who allows oppression, shares the crime, said, Erasmus Darwin.

The rewards for supporting love, justice, liberty, and freedom for those who are trapped in an Islamic terrorist country are magnificent. You will receive your rewards from the Almighty Lord, either in this world or the next.

My fellow freedom loving people of this planet, millions of Iranians, inside and outside of Iran have boycotted the phony and irrelevant upcoming elation in Iran, due to the fact, that so called 'Guardian Council,' picks and choose its own scarecrows, for the obvious reasons, to intimidate the innocent-peace loving Iranians.

We need you to make a note of it that we, Iranians, are hoping to eradicate the Islamic lawlessness from our land. Iranians hope that you, the people of earth, watch them, pay attention to them, and help them morally and in whatever capacity you are able. They want you to participate in our election, by making sure your governments do not recognize the outcome of any elections in Iran, unless it is conducted under the supervision of the United Nations.

You owe this to yourselves. You owe this to humanity. You owe this to your other fellow human beings who need your voice NOW, more than ever. So, I beseech you to watch our upcoming elections, in solidarity with the people of Iran.

So far, the so called,  "leader of the biggest reform party in parliament, Mohammed Reza Khatami, resigned and accused the Guardian Council of killing all opportunities for resolving the dispute."

"There is no hope for a solution. We will not participate in this sham election. Even if all those disqualified are reinstated today, there will be no time for competition. Elections on February 20th are illegitimate," said Reza Khatami, the president's younger brother and a deputy speaker.

My freedom loving people, "we must all live so that our children do not have to pay for our deeds", Andrejs Upits
