All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.
Here's the dichotomy this apparently gentle man's confession presents.
Is he muslim? Assuming he is, How does he reconcile the vile echos of "allahu akbar" heard in every protest video against his role as a healer?
Without exception, the Iranians I personally am acquainted with are genteel individuals. Many identify as muslim, yet reveal their historic ties to zoroastrianism with the holiday traditions they celebrate. These apparent dichotomies are difficult for an infidel to reconcile, hence make it difficult to yield with the benefit of doubt.
Iran's ambassador to Mexico is accusing the CIA of gunning down Neda. These scumbags will go to no ends to cover their spineless hides.
Whoops, forgot to link:
P.S., I know CNN sucks.
Well said, Anonymous.
Thanks for the link. I can't figure out if such an idiotic statement deserves attention.
I get no sense of taqiyya-slipperiness from this young man. He appears typical of the people who are out in the streets demanding their freedom -- he was not a part of it at first, but has now been shocked into putting himself at risk because of an experience from which he cannot turn away. For some people, that is how it happens. The issue has to be brought home to them in a very direct manner. As Ed Cline puts it in the post above, people must be taught the value of freedom. This is one way people learn.
As an ex-leftie who spoke with hatred for America, I can tell you that what RRA says is true. I was taught to value my Freedom on 9/11, when I saw for sure that Muslims would take it away from us if we allowed them to do so.
I never understood that hatred for America mindset. Bad presidents, bad administrations (like our current award winner) sure. But why America itself? Where would you rather live? And still enjoy all you do here?
Questions are rhetorical and NOT intended to start nuthin'. My pc has all but given up the ghost, insufficient legal tender for repair or replacement at the moment and am typing on the kid's antique (2 year old) laptop.
So if I drop out for a bit don't take it personal and don't celebrate too much ;>)
To answer your rhetorical question, I thought that I'd rather live in Europe.
Really, I was just an idiot.
