Beyond Puerile Jewish gestures

This is a report by a Lebanon based American who visits trouble spots in the Middle East, and often offers alternative narratives to those that come from the standard Jewish owned media outlets and Thinktanks in the JEWSA.

I suppose the election of Hagel or otherwise as defsec is more an indication of Jewish paranioa, malice with ill intent, and power, rather than any substantive prospective changes within the huge Pentagon leviathan by any reasonable capabilities of just one mere good honest sincere man.

Will Washington grasp the hand being offered by the Iranian people?

Truth told, this American observer has attended his share of international conferences and has traveled in more than 70 countries. But never has he visited such  a complex country, evolving culture,  and striving  energized society, populated by idealistic people of great warmth, sense of humor and caring for those in need as he experiences in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Except when traveling in his own country.


.
Being in Iran during these tense times is to experience an epiphany. Which is that Iranians and Americans have so very many needs and interests in common-yes even in our religious beliefs- that both peoples should immediately repair our countries relations and return to the days when 60,000 Iranian students studied in the US and thousands of Americans lived and worked in Iran- all in singular harmony and with myriad mutual benefits.

(The Shah considered students to be political problems, so on the one hand he wanted all Iranians to have Ph.D's metaphorically speaking, but not in Iran...and from 1965 he encouraged large numbers of Iranian students to study abroad with his petro-$....not a good idea since many centers of descent against his puppet regime were in fact in the very Western countries he sent his students to. 

For developing countries, nearly all university students including the elite, especially the children of the elite should be educated in their home country, lest they are recruited as spies by the CIA and so forth. For the Shah it would have cost far less in many respects to set up universities in remote parts of the country, rather than send his students abroad. 

Now in the USA Saudi students will be prioritized, followed by Chinese and Indian.

As a puppet of the USA the Shah  was vulnerable to the whims of the day in Washington.....so in a sense not a good idea to have too many Americans in your country. The writer portrays the mullahs as hero's of a peoples struggle...but in reality the mullahs were brought into power by the UK/USA, using the American's based in Iran, embedded in the embassy, or as military advisers, as civil advisers in the universities, so forth. Illiterate disorganized mullahs do not overcome one of the most formidable security systems which was trained by the CIA/Mossad, with actual agents in place, without external help. The Revolutionary Islamic ball was set in motion with the sacking of 800 CIA officers some very close to the Shah in 1977?.

Finally of course the mullah puppets installed by the UK/USA in 1979, have not been so good to Iran and its future, as the writer above would have us believe. 

The mullahs by many multiplications have executed far more people in their 34 years of power than the dastardly CIA puppet Shah. The Mullahs, unlike the Shah, have executed many children and many women. Systemic rape of women and children in prison did not take place under the Shah, as it does with the mullahs. 5 million educated people did not leave Iran under the Shah, taking with them $1,500,000,000 worth of state assets. The Shah did not conduct 8 year wars with neighbors, sacrificing little children and 1 million lives, and $500 billion worth of economic damage to the country----without clear objectives. The Shah promoted normal educated people who spoke in measured polite tones, as state officials, without any beards...diplomatic and state administration.....NOT simian look neanderthals speaking through their backsides.

HOWEVER, I accept the general gist of the above writers arguments that for the strategic medium to long term, it is very necessary for the JEWSA to mend fences with Persia, after being non-existent for 34 years. There are really no substantive grounds for animosity between the two nations, and the extensive covert relationship between the two nations attests to that fact. The rest is just Jew fantasy, and paranioa. The JEWSA must behave normally with Iran, and accept the REALITY OF THE COUNTRY.

On the other hand Iran doesn't need the USA or the West....to ultimately develop further. Close relations with China and Russia is sufficient, if the mullahs are simply interested in clinging on to power, and not much else. 


.
The deep connection among Muslims and Christians from the seventh century sacrifice at Karbala by Hussein bin Ali and the first century sacrifice at Calvary by Jesus Christ, established forever a claimed divine principle of sacrifice of one’s self to resist injustice for the greater good of the community. This bond underpins and connects the two religions and their followers inextricably.



There is probably no country more misunderstood in America than Iran


 .
 And its due almost entirely to politically motivated demonizations and misrepresentations, including, but not limited to, what President Ahmadinejad really said during speeches relating to the US and the West and the historical imperative to liberate occupied Palestine and every country’s right to develop nuclear energy and to live independently and free of US-led western hegemony. 

.
Most Americans’ perceptions of Iran, according to Iranian friends, are limited to images of President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad accused of delivering anti-American speeches.



Another example is the media reports of the 2/09/13 celebration of the 34th anniversary of the Iranian revolution where the BBC and most other media reported the crowds were “frenzied and chanting death to America.”  I was there and this report is rubbish.  I did hear from time to time a few chants mixed in with revolutionary songs, religious exhortations, and just plain fun. Helping others by offering water and heavy laden older citizens or kids was the motif.


.
People were happy not angry and they could not have been more friendly or curious about the Americans they came upon and who helped them pick up Iranian leaflet flags that blew or were dropped onto the streets as the Americans understood Iranian pride in their flag and not wanting to see it walked on or subjected to disrespect.



 .
One does not have to look further than the morning newspapers for examples and to find the likes of Zionist apologist, Iranophobe and Islamophode Jennifer Rubin, in her Washington Post screed.  Ms. Rubin, on Valentine’s Day had only poisonous invective in her heart for any American- even cupid one imagines- who would dare express any remotely objective idea about Iran. 

.
Rubin, a former AIPAC volunteer, lambasted Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, former US Senator, Chuck Hagel, as nearly all 52 Zionist organizations in America have done this past month, because he advocates mutual respect and friendship with Iran. Hagel’s unforgivable sins included his words on the subject of criminal US-led sanctions against Iran and Syria and the need to build trust and normalize relations through dialogue.

 .

Said Hagel about U.S.-Iran relations: “We shouldn’t be putting conditions on talks or putting all other issues to the side except one issue that we will ‘dictate’ to Iran.”    As far back as 2007, Hagel stated that “In the Middle East of the 21st century, Iran will be a key center of gravity… a significant regional power. The United States cannot change that reality. America’s strategic 21st-century regional policy for the Middle East must acknowledge the role of Iran today and over the next 25 years.” 

.
Hagel continued: “On Afghanistan, the United States and Iran found common interests — defeating the Taliban and Islamic radicals, stabilizing Afghanistan, stopping the opium production and the flow of opium coming into Iran. From these common interests emerged common actions working toward a common purpose. It was in the interests of Iran to work with the U.S. in Afghanistan. It was not a matter of helping America or strengthening America’s presence in Central Asia. It was a clear-eyed and self-serving action for Iran.”

.

Hagel may have erred a bit on Afghanistan and the Taliban, but Rubin found Hagel’s point of view treasonous and has joined the  the US Zionist lobby’s call for a witch-hunt when she asks her readers: “Why would the president select someone so deferential toward the Islamic revolutionary government? ..During the Congressional recess, the Senate should think about that. And it might be interesting to find out who was helping him with these intensely pro-Tehran speeches.

. 
In Iran today one does not hear Rubinesque hate speech or even lectures about the 1953 US-UK overthrow of (Democratically elected) Iranian leader Mohammad Mossedeg or the shooting down on July 3, 1988 of the commercial passenger aircraft Iran Air Flight 655 (IIR655) or the US giving chemical weapons to Iraq, during its US backed aggression, or even the assassination of Iranian scientists or a number of other US green lighted aggressions against the country.

.
Much more often, conversations are likely to turn to the need to improve relations and friendly questions about what foreigners are experiencing in Iran and if they need assistance in doing something or information about their country.  Iranians are as open as Americans are by their very nature, and unlike many other countries no subject for discussion is taboo. For this observer it included  topics such as the “morality police”, execution of drug dealers and homosexuals, “stoning” of women,  attacks on the  Bahá’í Faith, which is the country’s second-largest religion after Islam, the  2009 “Green Revolution” and any other subject that came to mine, including drinking alcohol and public dating.


 .
One hilarious conversation this observer had with four early 20’s female students during a Conference last week was about the number (more than 60%) of Chador wearing women who openly wear makeup these days, how Iranian society is changing rapidly, and the amount of hair some women expose while in public and wondering if this was not prohibited by Fatwa and how they deal with it. Their responses were immediate and nearly all at once.  No one had even seen one of the Western hyped “morality police” for a long time and they are few and far between.
 
.
One young lady explained that its true she wears her hijab 2/3’s the way back on her head and “if one of those guys dares to say something I will either tell him to mind his own business or if I am in a good mood I will act really, really surprised, shrug my shoulders, wink at him and say something like, “Oh so very sorry, really I am!.  It was a big gust of wind that must have blown it back on my head without me noticing!” Even if there had not even been so much as a soft breeze in days.
Iranian women are smart, strong willed-even a bit pushy at times and naturally alluring.

.
Who would want to join some “morality police” unit?  The ladies explained that if one comes up to you on the street and if you are really rude to him and tell him to get lost, or worse, you might get a ticket and your parents would have to come to the police station and sign a pledge that you would try to do better about trying to observe some modesty in public. Again rather different from what the MSM tells us in the West.

.

And it’s clear whether attending an international  conference on Hollywoodism (www.hollywoodism.org) at the Azadi (Freedom Hotel-formerly the pre-Revolution Hyatt ), traveling on the Tehran subway (far cleaner than New Yorks!) exploring street souks, visiting the Holy Defense Museum (explaining the 8 years Iran-Iraq war) or  visiting the home of Imam Ruhollah  Khomeini, who led the 1979 Revolution and was Iran’s leader until his death on June 3,1989 in or walking, for miles it seemed, among the nearly two million people marching to Azadi Square to commemorate this month’s 34th anniversary of the Revolution when the people of Iran overthrew the American agent, Shah Reza Palavi........ 


that the Iranian people are kind and they are gifted.

.

When I got on the crowded Tehran subway, two young men immediately stood up to offer this observer their seats.  And then we engaged in a very interesting long animated conversation.  Said, Hamzeh, You know, we feel like we understand America and we should be friends. Both of our countries are culturally unique somehow. Your country evolved from European culture but moved in very distinct direction. In our history Islam arrived via the Arabs but as you have been seeing I am sure, our identity is completely different from Arab countries.”
.

Mahmoud joined in: Our society is also made up of many minorities, but we have a single Iranian identity and are very proud of our culture. We’re also familiar with Western ways. For the last 200 years, we were open to the Western world and influenced by European culture, even if some of the ideas, like democracy, have never had a chance to really develop properly but we will continue trying. But we also know what it’s like to be a superpower. For us it was a long time ago, but we played an important role in this part of the world for many centuries so we can never see ourselves as subject to western or eastern hegemony.”
.
There is every reason for Washington’s new administration to reach out to Iran, not just with words but with actions.  The American and Iranian people fervently want this and it wills inestimably benefit both societies. The solution to positive the current straightened Iran-US relations includes contact, visitations, discussions and more discussions and from this both peoples can pressure their governments to leave the past behind and develop bonds of friendship.
