Khomeini Deceiving Iranian men and women

Iranian women through times...

Iranian women under nationalistic Iranian governments (pre/post Islamic invasion) and anti-Iranian occupational Islamic regimes:

Previously:Watch the video of Iranian women demonstrating against compulsory veil and hejab in 1979:

More than 15,000 women are shouting in 1979: "we didn't have a revolution to go back in time or to regress"--where our freedom and rights are taken away. They are also saying that Khomeini promised us not to take our liberties from us and look what he has done to us...They are shouting we're not scared and "death or freedom". "Death to being enslaved". Our daughters have made a revolution to have a choice whether to wear Hijab or not...not to be forced to wear Hejab...." I don't feel safe anymore walking in the street without hejab". "We fought for liberty and freedom and equality for men and women and freedom of expression" not to be enchained in the name of Islam". "Without freedom and equality for women, no revolution is meaningful".

If the first link doesn't work use this link:

Note : The Iranian women in the video are not wearing veil because prior to 1979, Iranian women had a choice to wear Islamic hejab or not. Khomeini took that choice away from them and implemented other horrendous medieval sharia laws on all Iranian women.

The bloody Iranian revolution, which plunged Iran and the Iranians into a Medieval age of shocking violence and brutality against women and men. Here are some old newspaper clippings where Ayatollah Khomeini lied and deceived the nation into accepting the Islamic form of government.

Note in the first newspaper clipping above that Khomeini only said that the Hejab in Iran will not be mandatory after millions of secular women took to the streets in 1980 (see video) and demonstrated against the new Islamic decree of Khomeini.

Khomeini in an attempt to calm the unrest, lied to women and announced a few days later that "Hejab will not be compulsory or Mandatory".

Then in the second newspaper clipping, Khomeini declares that he is not interested in "governing" and becoming a "political Leader".

In the last newspaper clipping, Khomeini says, "In Islam there is no dictatorship". Keep in mind that Khomeini and his Islamic party had not yet usurped the power. For all intents and purposes, Khomeini was lying to Iranians to exploit religious feeling and build more consensus among different groups in order to fool them into accepting Islamic form of government, which had nothing to do with what Iranians perceived to be as Islam for they have lived in a secular society.

The consequences of these bold lies were that even the secular/liberal political parties decided to make an alliance with Khomeini in the spirit of cooperation to move the country forward. But as we all know, the rest is history. The next two years immediately after ousting the Shah, the secular Iranians increasingly found themselves in a terrible pit the mullahs were digging for all the democratic movement of the masses. All those who wanted to keep, and extend, the democratic gains did not foresee the gathering dark clouds of intolerant Islam and the thugs of the Islamic Republic Party. By the middle of 1981 the left/liberal/progressives had all but been eliminated from the political scene. Tens of thousands of secular/left/liberal/progressive were executed and hundreds of thousands spent years behind bars.

Please learn the lessons of the Iranian revolution and don't fall for the lies of the Islamist parties. These lessons have implications in today's unfolding events in Turkey, Malyasia, Indonesia, Palestine, Egypt, Iraq, and others who think theocracy is their savior. Do not let the Islamists drown your country into the vile swamp of intolerance, macabre, hate and self-destruction.
Don't give up the fight against the Islamists.

In Death Smile Fortells

Denver Post
By Ana Sami

The world has seen nothing like it. When Majid Kavosifar was hanged in public in Tehran for killing criminal judge Hassan Moghadas, no one expected to see the expression they saw on his face the day of his execution.

As Kavosifar was jostled through the crowd by the regime's demonic henchmen in ski masks - and even as he was hoisted onto the platform that he was to be hanged from - he wore a triumphant, almost joyful smile on his face. If there were ever an image that qualified for "Is there something wrong with this picture?" it would be this one.

Hanging in public serves the purpose of quelling dissent and evoking fear for Iran's people. The recent wave of hangings in Iran has proven once again that many of those who are hanged under the pretext of social crimes are indeed people who are fed up with the unjust Iranian regime and are taking matters into their own hands.

Most of the public images of hangings in Iran that have taken place normally show a victim with a much different demeanor than that of Majid. Sullen eyes that speak of endless pain, faces blank with fear, and for the women, dark cloaks, chadors that enshroud their bodies and a blindfold to disguise their anguish.

This scene has become all too familiar, especially since the Iranian regime has stepped up its public executions to horrifying degrees. On July 22, the Iranian regime hanged 12 people simultaneously, and several other hangings took place in July all over the country, including another group hanging in Azerbaijan.

In a televised interview regarding the group hangings, Ahmad Reza Radan, the commander of Tehran's police force, stated that, "The response to those who stand firm against the Iranian regime and its practices is execution."

In Iran, legal procedures to execute the most outspoken against the regime are often expedited or simply ignored. Such was the case with Atefeh Rajabi, the 16-year-old girl who was hanged in Neka. Her case was expedited to lightening speeds. In Iran, the judiciary and the government are one and the same, thus leading to dangerous exploitations of the law simply for political purposes.

Majid Kavosifar and his uncle, Hossein Kavosifar, were both hanged for killing Moghadas. They had collaborated and confessed to committing the act. Moghadas was Tehran's assistant chief prosecutor, responsible for signing countless death sentences. Moghadas's role was that of a ruthless cleric who bypassed judicial procedures to ensure the swift death of the Iranian regime's opponents.

Tehran's public prosecutor, Saeed Mortazavi, did not allow the press to interview Majid Kavosifar, 22, and his uncle Hossein, 28, as is typical with public executions. However, after the execution, Mortazavi did state that he had spoken to both men, and that they refused to renounce their actions and expressed no regret for what they did. Majid is reported to have said, "I have reached a level of understanding to know who the corrupt and depraved are."

The price these victims pay for their bravery is the same, and all hangings are equally as disturbing and unjustified. However, the smile that gleamed over Majid's face as he strained to wave goodbye while handcuffed was indeed victorious, and the message was clear: "I defeated you, I am not frightened, and I am honored to die; hanging me will no longer repel resistance."

While Majid's courage is remarkable in the face of such torment and brutality, we can be sure that there will be other fearless Iranian youths ready to give their lives, until that proud smile gives way to the much awaited dawn of change.

The Tree that remembers

In 1992 a young Iranian student hanged himself on the outskirts of a small Ontario town.

Having escaped the Ayatollah's regime and found a new home in Canada, he could not escape his past. News of the young stranger's death hit home with Masoud Raouf. He too was part of the generation who fought for democracy during the reign of the Shah.

With The Tree that Remembers, Raouf assembled a group of Iranians - all former political prisoners like himself, who were active in the democratic movement. Blending their testimony with historical footage and original artwork, he honours the memory of the dead and celebrates the resilience of the living.

Iranian students brutally beaten


And now here are film footages of Iranian students getting beaten up at Alameh and Amirkabir university:
Herasat Attack 1
Herasat Attack 2

Herasat is a repressive body in every Iranian university and government work place which spies and reports on students and government employees and carries out such repressive acts as shown in the film footages above.Meanwhile, the chief of these thugs, Ayatollah Messbah Yazdi is invited to the Waterloo university by the Mennonites:

I just hope Iranian ex-pats will do more than just a petition:

From now on the word Mennonite for me will be synonymous with FILTH!

Katayoun on Waterloo University and inviting the thug Ayatollah to lecture on interfaith dialogue:
Without the slightest hesitation: An open-dialogue with the Iranian "scholar-clerics"!!!

Instilling Fear in the public

"Iranian youth are being paraded and tortured publicly. The above photos was taken by Pars News photographer who was invited to the torture parade in order to photograph and disseminate the images all across Iran and the world. The images at the top show a young man with Marlon Brando looks and his free spirit shown by his Colombia football jersey and long hair, being pushed, thrown on the ground and his forehead getting bloodied in order to force him to put a device in his mouth which is used in toilets to wash excrement. The image below shows a clean cut man with western style shirt and trousers being subject to similar humiliations in front of photojournalists and the public."

Omid, a memorial in defense of human rights in Iran

Omid Cyber Memorial

The men and women whose stories you can read on this page are now all citizens of a silent city named Omid ("hope" in Persian). There, victims of persecution have found a common life whose substance is memory.

Omid's citizens were of varying social origins, nationalities, and religions; they held diverse, and often opposing, opinions and ideologies. Despite the differences in their personality, spirit and moral fiber, they are all united in Omid by their natural rights and their humanity. What makes them fellow citizens is the fact that one day each of them was unfairly and arbitrarily deprived of his or her life. At that moment, while the world watched the unspeakable happen, an individual destiny was shattered, a family was destroyed, and an indescribable suffering was inflicted.
If you wander around this city, you will realize that, through their common ordeal, the citizens of Omid have created another Iran, an imaginary Iran: a democratic polity, pluralistic and diverse, where citizens posthumously enjoy their human rights.

Visit Omid, meet its citizens, and, by doing so, bring them back in memory. Let them challenge our conscience so that in the future we will prevent this kind of tragedy from happening again.
