American-Iranian September

September 11, 2003
Koorosh Afshar
Iran va Jahan

A new September is approaching. The world is getting prepared to stand still one more time to remember those who lost their lives on that disastrous day.

"Things will Never be the Same Here" was the title of an article I read in the following weeks of 9/11. This was the best way one could describe not only America but the whole world on the days to come.

These terrorist acts were truly acts of the evil against civility in the modern era which, unlike the past, had the potential to attract almost everybody's attention in the world. "Why unlike the past"? Since many of you might not know but as heartbreaking and unbearable 9/11 could be for the Americans, 9/10, as well as 9/11, is for the Iranians.

The reactions towards what happened on 9/11 were different in different parts of the globe but since the very happening of these evil acts, the youth of Iran sided with the Americans.

You might still remember that our youth, the new generation of the Iranians, we, were the only people among the Middle Eastern countries, while opposing the ruling mullahs, poured into the streets and held candle light vigils to show our solidarity with the Americans, quite contrary to the vile policies of our government. At the time this seemed quite sufficient to disclose to others as to how we felt about the 9/11 tragedy.

Removing the last excuse for the mullahs and also to dismiss any probable doubt regarding their role in these catastrophic events some links were found later which suggested that the mullahs of the Islamic Republic have very close ties with the "Al Qaida", as they previously had with other terrorist groups.

The irony is that while we shared the same pain and grief with the modern world on that day, I am afraid many of Westerners might not have known that September, points to a very bitter experience in the common memory of my nation too.

It was almost on these same days, nearly 15 years ago, that the old Devil of deadly wrath and fear, Ayatollah Khomeini, ordered his henchmen to execute thousands of prisoners of conscience (mostly political prisoners) in an unprecedented action not only in our contemporary history but also in our distant history. One might only be able to trace similar acts in the early centuries of the Arab incursion to Persia. The detestation for the Bedouin culture is obvious and raising day by day among the Iranians. I believe that lot of us are making fundamental reconsiderations in our religious beliefs. Our emphasis on being a non-Arab state (contrary to what the mullahs advocate) has deep psychological roots among the present generation of our nation.

It was during that time that lot of our mothers lost their only son or daughter. What made this an unbearable blow to our country was the fact that a considerable percentage of those (more than 15000 people) murdered then, were the elite of our society, the ones for whose education and training this ancient land had invested tremendously and had counted on their participation in the construction of her future – a future which never materialized.

And the mullahs knew it well. The gallant children of this great nation were summarily slaughtered by these shop-keepers of religion and in cold blood.

Right after Khomeini accepted the ceasefire (U.N. resolution 598) in 1987, an Iraqi based Iranian opposition group, which didn't (and still does not) have a popular support in Iran, initiated an attack which proved to be a loss for the group as hundreds of them were murdered brutally. This gave Khomeini a good reason to quench his never ending blood thirst by ordering all the political prisoners to be executed throughout the country.

Another demagogue, Ayatollah Montazari, who was supposed to be Khomeini's successor, has written his memoirs in the recent years. There is a chapter in his book in which he describes how he had written to Khomeini suggesting him not to execute the virgin girls captured as political prisoners because it was "against the teachings of Islam". In response to Montazari's suggestion, Khomeini, then, issues a fatwa in which he authorizes the interrogators and the guards (consisting of the members of the regime's intelligence, the guardians of revolution to temporarily marry the girls (Islamic Sighe') and deflower them the night before their execution. In his fatwa which was later released Khomeini says: "I hope that you will win Allah the Almighty's satisfaction with your revolutionary anger and grudge in carrying out this order..."

Try to imagine the feelings of that Iranian female student, still in her teens, captured merely for the ownership of a dissident paper and sentenced to spend 5 years in prison. Now, after passing 2 years of her sentence, after all those insults and tortures and persecutions they interrogate her one more time. A mullah tries her. He is the judge and the jury is himself. He sentences her to death. As she is still a virgin, in order to make her "eligible" to be murdered, she must get married to that filthy, bearded Haji that same night….

Morning comes. The Arabic words of Azan can be heard everywhere through the loud speakers. Her whole body is bruised and aching. She is bleeding, she hates herself. She is asked to wear that black veil, in her slippers they walk her to the saloon where she is to be executed. The thick blue ropes are hanging from the ceiling. She hopes it will be over sooner.

It is over now.

Thousands of girls like her have been executed since the beginning of the Islamic Republic. Some of them hanged some of them killed under sadistic tortures of the interrogators and other agents of the ochlocracy - some of them are shot dead.

You can find many families in Iran who have lots of heart breaking stories to tell. Many of them still recall their reaction when they had gone to learn about their loved one and in return were given a few of her (or his) belongings and were required to pay money for the bullet with which their loved one was executed.

Needless to say that nobody knows where these people are buried. Under the pressure of the families of the killed prisoners, the regime referred to a few locations outside few cities as the mass graves for those lost ones. There are so many corpses buried there that in the past years, mostly during the winter time, there have been cases that rain or snow wash away the soil revealing the bodies which were buried on top of the other ones. Only to be covered by the bulldozers of the regime immediately.

The regime refers to these places "La'nat Abad" (meaning "damnville") or "Kaafarestaan" meaning "infidelville".

People call those places "Flower Gardens".

The same stories continue today. In our struggles in June and July of this year quite a few of us were captured. And history was repeated; only this time the person who was arrested, tortured, raped, beaten and killed was a 54 year-old-Iranian-Canadian-journalist who was captured while she was taking some photographs outside of a prison, here in Tehran. The mullahs didn't accept her family's request to have her remains returned to Canada. She was buried rapidly and before burying her some chemicals were injected to her corpse so that her body would deteriorate rapidly in order to leave in vain any attempts aimed at returning her remains to Canada and examining the cause of her death and also any traces of a rape.

My friends and I would like to thank you, American people, for your concern and also for the uplifting words of some of your statesmen, only, please remember that after all these years of pain and agony for all of us, the talk of reformist and non-reformist and elected and unelected in the Islamic Republic should be dismissed on the spot by all of us.

I can certainly name a few patriotic Iranians who have, and will remain inspiring to all of us in this struggle, but in such adverse times, I'm reminded of the eloquent words of Thomas Paine, when he said:

I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.

Rest assured that our conscious, the conscious of the youth in Iran, approves our conduct.


My deepest Condolences and love to the families and loved ones of all who perished tragically in Khomeini's genocides & the 9/11 Terrorist attacks.

May they all rest in peace and may the world never come to know pain like that again.

The 2nd anniversary of September 11th Tragedy and the Iranian Nation

SMCCDI (Public Statement)
Sep 11, 2003

Two years have passed since the "Tragedy of September 11th". A tragedy resulting from an unprecedented terror attack on the US soil and which took thousands of innocent lives and left many grieving families behind.

Without the shadow of any doubt, this infamous attack was the true manifestation that fanatical Islamic Terrorism has no boundaries and is hell bent in uprooting all the advances achieved by the civilized World, replacing it with archaic beliefs along with an intolerant value system inherent in all overzealous religious sects.

September 11th occurred while the Iranians were commemorating their loved one's massacre at the hands of the fascist-theological Islamic Republic regime. This is exactly why the Iranians, immediately felt in their bones the impact of this murderous act and sympathized with the Americans. Few hours later and in thousands, they took to the streets to support the wounded American Nation and to share its sorrow while undergoing the brutality of the regime's shock troops. .

"America, America.... Condolences, Condolences!" and "Death to Taliban, whether in Kabul or Tehran" they chanted while holding their candle lights despite the brutal attacks of Hezbollahi thugs!!

Since then, Iranians have become more determined than ever to stand up against intolerance and tyranny as they saw the trueness of the unprecedented declaration of President George Bush on "War against Terror" and his revelation of the hideousness of religious fanaticism. They've regain hope by witnessing the overthrow first of the backwarded Taliban rulers in Afghanistan and then of the Iraq's Bathist regime, two of the most notorious supporters and purveyors of global terrorism in contemporary international politics.

Without the shadow of any doubt, the Iranians, themselves the first victims of terrorism for nearly a quarter of a century, not only sympathize with the Americans, but they identify with them in this "Just war". They're are engaged in a daily battle to rid themselves of their monstrous regime known for being the "Mother of Islamist Terrorism" and a notorious member of the "Axis of Evil".

More than ever, the struggling freedom loving Iranians are looking for the moral support of the Americans in their global quest to rid the world of this unholy, demonic menace. The Iranian people are in search of a democratic government separate from religious fanaticism, and a free and peaceful society. In pursuit of these goals they ask the American people to join with them in opposition to any reform or reformist movement within the Islamic republic, and to ask of their representative not to embrace or endorse any such sham reform in Iran, as they are nothing but an illusion and they do not represent the Iranian people.

The "Student Movement Coordination Committee for Democracy in Iran" while honoring all those who perished during the horrific September 11 attack and expressing once again its deepest sympathy with the families of the victims, declares that will do what ever is necessary to strengthen the bond and cooperation between the two great nations of Iran and America in the fight and struggle against Global Terrorism and Religious Fanatism.

It's of this committee's strongest believe that the Iranian and American peoples will emerge victorious in their noble mission of contributing to a safer and peaceful World!

9/11 Victims Remembered by Iranian Exiles in London

By Potkin Azarmeher

A group of Iranians gathered outside the Houses of Parliament in London tonight and remembered the victims of 9/11 as well as the Iranian political prisoners massacred in September 1988 by lighting candles and displaying posters.

The following leaflet was handed out to many passers by who received them with much enthusiasm. Many of whom shook hands with us and told us how refreshing it was to hear a voice against Islamic fundamentalism for a change.

The text of the leaflet handed out tonight:

Freedom loving people of the world,

We are gathered here today to mark the second anniversary of the September 11 tragedy carried out by the enemies of knowledge and progress. Yet another crime committed by the Islamic fundamentalists but one that brought the dangers of Islamic fundamentalism home to people in the West.

For us Iranians however, September also marks the mass execution of Iranian political prisoners in 1988. Several thousand Iranian political prisoners were executed by the kangaroo clerical courts and their bodies were buried in mass graves. A crime, which was ignored by the world. There were no protests, no marches, and no news headlines, just silence.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has got bolder and bolderas the West and the European Union continues to ignorethe role of Iran's clerics in so many atrocities.

Islamic Republic of Iran is a rogue state. It is responsible for more than 90 assassination attempts outside the Iranian soil. European citizens have also been the victims of these terrorist acts.

Islamic Republic of Iran harbours and sponsors terrorists. Well known wanted terror masters such as Lebanese Emmad Mughniye and Ennis Naqash, the Jordanian Al-Qaedeh link Abu Musaf Zarkawi currently reside in the Islamic Republic and it is also reported that Al-Qaeda's top leadership Iman al-Zawahiri and Saad bin Laden are also in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Islamic Republic of Iran is a global threat and is now close to developing nuclear weapons. How much longer can you stay silent before the terrorists strike again?

Put pressure on your politicians to stop promoting the Islamic Republic of Iran for the sake of short-term business interests. Support the Iranian peoples struggle for a secular democracy. Stand up to Islamic fundamentalism and the states that promote it.
