Goodbye 2009...


In a few short hours, the decade annoyingly referred to as the "noughties" will be over.

In terms of Iran, this decade has been monumental. It started off with the aftermath of the July 1999 protests under the tenure of the weak, "reformist" President Khatami and has ended with the cataclysmic events of the past six months, which have shook the very foundations of the Islamic Republic, as the Iranian people demand their human rights of freedom, democracy and liberty...the culmination of a century long struggle.

I saw this article in the Times a few days ago...whilst I don't think the "Berlin Wall" moment has arrived just yet, it is approaching. The past month alone has shown us what the Iranian people are capable of in fighting for their rights...from 16th Azar, to Ayatollah Montazeri's funeral to Ashura, they have fought in a resilient and courageous manner, and we must all salute their indefatigability as they suffer the backlash from the Islamic Republic's agents and mercenaries.

In the hope of a free, democratic Iran in 2010!
Long live the struggle for freedom and liberty in Iran!
Death to the Islamic Republic!

به امید داشتن ایران آزاد و دموکراتیک در سال ۲۰۱۰
پاینده ایران

مرگ بر جمهوری اسلامی


  1. I hope so...for all our sakes.

  2. With Respect Arash:
    I have a question. It is my belief that the emergence of the Islamic Republic of Iran was a major catalyst for the rise of Islamic terror. In fact, I read somewhere that Osama Bin Laden drew inspiration from the 1979 Revolution. If you agree with that suggestion, do you think the collapse of the IRI(should it happen) will have a profound effect on the global Islamic terror threat? Will it undermine the militant agenda? Or will the militants simply claim that the IRI's failure was due to the 'heresy' of the shiite version of sharia law?

  3. Anonymous:

    Militants will always make excuses for the failure of their evil policies. The day the Islamic Republic falls is the day that the Middle East becomes much more peaceful...everything from the situation in Yemen to the Israel/Palestine conflict will improve as a result of the fall of this regime.
