Iran student leader dies in jail

Another Iranian dissident dies in prisons of the Islamic regime. Do you think this would happen if liberal media had paid a little attention to the status of Iranian dissidents in regime's jails?

Fox News Reports, BBC News has more.

Italian's AKI:

Mullahs, liberal media, Eurowinnies, leftists, Mullahs' apologists and other left wing idiots share the blame for death of every single innocent people in Iran.

There are hundreds of dissidents like him in regime's jails who need to be freed. World needs to pay attention or it will be late and we'll end up having more dead dissidents.

The situation in Iran is very unfortunate!

I think it's great that you've brought your ethnic grudges to Canada and propose that my tax dollars and fellow countymen's blood should be sacrificed to do whatever it is you want us to do over there.

I'm thrilled that you are obsessed with islamofascism in some place halfway around the world, and seem oblivious to this thing we call "Canada" anyway, except when their stupid UN observers get in the way of our heroic Israeli allies in the war on terror.

I suppose it escaped your attention that a Canadian citizen was just released from 22 days in an Israeli cell, where he was tortured. He was detained in the most bogus of cricumstances, as I'm sure you'll see when you read the article:

"An Israeli-Canadian professor held in an Israeli jail for more than three weeks after being accused of espionage said Israeli authorities deprived him of sleep for 60 hours and heaped verbal abuse on him bordering on sexual harassment.

Ghazi Falah, a 53-year-old geography professor with dual citizenship, said Sunday he is considering a lawsuit against Israel after the "trauma" of his 22-day detention in a northern Israeli prison."


Surely you care at least as much about your fellow Canadian citizens as your former countrymen, right?

Based on the available media reports to date, I don't think that treatment of Mr. Falah can reasonably be compared to the treatment of Mr. Mohammadi, either has a matter of degree or of kind.

It is my understanding that a significant number of Persians are not supportive of the current elitist regime in Tehran, and would prefer to return to the more enlightened days of the not so distant past. My Persian acquaintances are unanimous in this matter, they say that even the Shah was much better than the current regime.

Of course, since the Shah was arguably a puppet of US foreign policy, the fanatical anti-Americans won't accept that, because it would require them to drop one of the tenets of their anti-Americanism. As a result, they effect the net result of supporting a worsening situation for the moderate Persians.

Earth calling Fizz

I read the National Post story and would say that under the circumstances Mr Falah got off pretty lightly .
Doing a tourist photo-op in any war zone...well you're taking your chances.
As for the interrogation bordering on sexual harassment; I can't buy that with the information I'm reading.
In conclusion,I think you are over reacting and your post lacks credibility.

Sexual harrassment?

He's an old man, and ugly too! Since they never laid a finger on him, he just had to come up with something!

And, how does he know that Canada did nothing to get him released. Maybe, just maybe his release is because of what Canada has done, to get him out.

Thing is, if he was taking a photo op, for the selling of the photos, which would have nedangered the lives of people, then Israel had every right in the world, to detain him. Israelis did not do to him, what the iranians did to Zara Kazimi!

Oh, that is where the Iranians, beat her, raped her, and after assualting her for weeks, smashed her head open! We have the Dr.s reports and everything!

Thanks for the post Winston. Ignore the leftist fizz.

I watched the movie 'Syriana' last night. I should have known with it being a Clooney movie...what a piece of left-wing propaganda. For anyone who didn't see it... U.S. bad, middle eastern oil emir good. Ths bad old USA/oil buddies in bed to kill and stop an emir from helping his people out of their U.S. forced backward economy. As if those in the middle east couldn't run their backward economies on their own.

i always find it amusing in a perverse way, to see people complain about israel and how they treat detainment of canadians. what about the poor canadian lady murdered in iran by there enlightened police. a friend of mine was an undercover police officer for the shahs regime,
and some of his stories of muslim atrocities, make hitler look like a leadership candidate for the boy scouts

I dont care what you say because Canada of Harper stands for human rights in Iran and I am grateful of being in Canada. Dont worry, once Iran is freed, I will leave this socialist land and may never come back but this is where you leftists have always failed me and people like me. That is why I dislike you and your freaking agenda

Posted by: Winston | 2006-07-31 10:23:12 PM

Are you sure you wanted to say that, Winston?

Posted by: Vitruvius | 2006-07-31 10:46:39 PM

While Winston's reply may not be expedient or "clever", at least he's being honest.

And for the morality-based among us, for whom words such as "duty" and "honour" not only retain meaning but are generally considered non-pejorative, a bit of honesty is appreciated and respected.

Some people consider dishonesty a grave sin; others, not so much...

"1. Stupidity—The top of the list for Satanic Sins. The Cardinal Sin of Satanism. It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. "


I think we can safely put Winston in the former camp and Vitruvius in the latter. Can we send Satan Boy to Iran in your stead, Winston, after the revolution? Ceteris paribus, I prefer honest fellow citizens to deceitful ones....

Sticks and stones may break my bones, Fizz, but ad homenims just make you look dishonest, mutatis mutandis. If Winston chooses to answer my question I will carry on with my thought, but he is under no obligation to, that's his business. You, Fizz, don't enter in to it.

Vitru, if they dont want me here why should I stay here?

Posted by: Winston | 2006-08-01 11:31:20 AM

To help those of us who do want you to stay here and help us fight them.

Posted by: Vitruvius | 2006-08-01 11:34:01 AM

Got it! But these people always harrass me and call for my return to my homeland, as if I came here for pleasure.
