Is hope for help a distant dream?
By: Amil Imani
The passion for power to dominate, to control and to rule one's fellow
humans is an ancient impulse. It goes back to prehistoric times when
certain individuals had the desire to force their will upon those around
Islamic Republic is not an exception to this rule. They, too, have ruled
over defenseless Persians for the past 26 years, with iron fists and with
absolute power. It has caused millions of people to flee their country.
Those remaining have been subject to mass executions, thousands upon
thousands of fabricated arrests, thousands of people torn away from their
homes and thrown into prison. They have been subjected to torture, made to
confess to the crimes they never committed, and then either exterminated
or sent back to medieval Islamic torture chambers where they simply faded
away. It is difficult for many people to even talk about these horrible
In 1979, upon returning from his long exile, Ayatollah Khomeini set the
stage for gaining absolute power via primitive Islamic rules and by
employing hundreds of thousands of overzealous revolutionary guards and
militia police repression against opposition elements within the country.
The machinery of coercion went to work against the Iranian people who had
fought a long fight against the totalitarian regimes and who were unaware
of the plot of one the greatest terrorist minded individuals of the
twentieth century. The year 1979 was the beginning of the rejuvenation of
the evil empire of Islam.
The propaganda machinery of the newly emerged empire of evil went to work.
Distorted information was at work. The Mullahs' fear of the Iranian
people, knowing how deeply the people hate them, increased their
propaganda machine and they continued to tell larger than life lies about
popular support for the terrorist regime.
The execution of thousands of prisoners of conscience by the direct order
of the founder of Islamic Republic, Khomeini, in the Summer of 1988,
reached its pinnacle.
In his speech, Khomeini said, "Those who are in prisons throughout
the country and remain committed to their support for the Monafeqin [Mojahedin],
are waging war on God and are condemned to execution.... Destroy the
enemies of Islam immediately. As regards the cases, use whichever
criterion that speeds up the implementation of the [execution]
Ayatollah Khomeini notable legacy will live alongside the most infamous
and hated men in history, such as Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot
and Saddam Hussein who sent million of their own countrymen to their
That is how the Iranians learned the Islamic justice. That is how the
Iranian Muslims gained first hand experience of the rotten laws of Islam
in their society. And that is why after 26 years of incessant
indoctrination of Islamic barbarism,
has the largest anti-Islamic law population in the Muslim world, and a
huge pro-western youth. The Islamic Republic brainwashing machine has
simply backfired on them.
Ironically, the more vociferous Iranian people became in defying the
terrorist State, the more European countries were engaging in appeasing
the Islamic tyrants. Now is precisely the time for President Bush to show
solidarity with the majority of Iranians who want greater freedom, just as
Ronald Reagan spoke up for the people of
in the early 1980s.
The only way to stop
's despotic regime from another holocaust, is to help Iranians change the
regime themselves. Ironically, the Islamic regime has no fear of foreign
invasion. The only true fear within the rulers of the Islamic regime is
from the Iranian people. The Islamic Republic has already invited the
world to attack
, because that would only unite the Iranians against the invaders. So,
does an entire generation, which has grown up since the Islamic Revolution
of 1979, favor the
point of view? The answer is YES, indeed, they do. The problem for the
, and the world, is that Islamic Republic remains one of the leading state
supporters of Islamic terrorism.
On the occasion of the 14th anniversary of the death of Ayatollah
Khomeini, the founding father of the Islamic Republic, the Supreme Leader
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei spoke "The American threats are not new. They
have threatened us since the beginning of the Islamic revolution. They
know that militarily attacking
and the Iranian nation would mean suicide for the aggressor.
So the only real option left is to subdue the Islamic Republic's
aspiration of starting World War III. This requires the support of the
and their legitimate quest for freedom, justice and liberty and friendship
with the people of the
. Yet, not by words of kindness or patting on their shoulders, but
massively arming the defenseless Iranian people to fight and exterminate
these brutal and unwanted thugs from their land. The clock is ticking and
Iranian people are losing faith that help is coming.
