How to Help Iran?

Tell your elected representatives, especially the American ones, Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative to "SHUT THE HELL UP!"

Obama's handled this PERFECTLY well so far!

Make him know that on behalf of your Iranian friend, Naj.

The slightest American meddling will throw all that spilled blood out of the window! Let us accomplish our own deed. Then, all we ask of your government, is to respect whatever government becomes official in Iran, even if it may be Ahmadinejad.


An American friend of mine just sent this to her congresswoman:

Dear Congresswoman Tsongas,

I am writing to you as a concerned American citizen who is an active member of the international community. With the recent electoral upheaval in Iran, there are many people, many friends of mine, who are caught between a rock and a hard place. They do not necessarily still live in Iran, but love for their family, country, and heritage is a huge part of their identity.

The main fear they have is that anything other than a course of neutrality by individual countries could very easily forment further bloodshed against civilians in an attempt to control protests, display power, and cultivate fear. President Obama has so far done an excellent job of maintaining neutrality, but it is concerning that various members of congress want to take a more hard-line stance, and are haranguing the president for not having done so.

As your constituent, Congresswoman Tsongas, I am asking you to please do what you can to maintain official US neutrality toward the current situation in Iran, and please do not support any bills that would involve US interests directly in this matter.

Sincerely,
[name preserved]

Naj I agree 100% We have to shut up but the friggen Republicans refuse to. Obama is right but still I just heard Ahmadinejad say the US and Britain better stop instigating and interfering. Officially I do not believe they are but Ahmadinejad will use that to whip up the Basij and the Revolutionary Guard.Hope everything is okay with you and yours!

Seriously, you yourself called the Ahminejad government fascist. If it prevails, it will be in spite of the people and because it spilled their blood. Why should other governments respect it?

I think we deserve a well argued answer, because what you are saying does not seem to make sense.

Naj said...

Yosef, very good question you area asking, but the answer is clear: even fascists can LEARN to succumb to the will of the people!

If Ahmadinejad becomes president it means that people are convinced that he HAS indeed won. But for him to form a government, in situations taht I see now, the only way is to repent, apologize and stop this fascistic crackdown on people! If he takes leadership in stopping this madness, he will have proven me wrong! I challenge him to do so! But he is awfully silent and timid these days!

He will have my support IF he stops acting like a fascist!

does it make sense?

Stop acting as an agent of foreigners. They do not care about you or Iran. They are using you as part of their propoganda machine. You are wrong in what you are doing - and you will live to see your mistakes and to regret it. pen Name

Thank you Naj, what you say makes sense when you discount completely the possibility that Ahmadinejad will prevail simply by a murderous clampdown. I hope you are right, but personally I am not yet convinced that he will not resort to desperate measures such as those used in North Korea, Burma and Syria.

I fully agree. Any American verbal intervention can be used to demonstrate the need for the radical choice.
But the blowhards seem to always need to blow!!
We are with you.

The Iranian regime has developed, with the assistance of European telecommunications companies, one of the world's most sophisticated mechanisms for controlling and censoring the Internet, allowing it to examine the content of individual online communications on a massive scale.

Instead, in confronting the political turmoil that has consumed the country this past week, the Iranian government appears to be engaging in a practice often called deep packet inspection, which enables authorities to not only block communication but to monitor it to gather information about individuals, as well as alter it for disinformation purposes, according to these experts.

The monitoring capability was provided, at least in part, by a joint venture of Siemens AG, the German conglomerate, and Nokia Corp., the Finnish cellphone company, in the second half of 2008, Ben Roome, a spokesman for the joint venture, confirmed.


Naj may did change here mind due to the above regime act

Mine never made a peep, and he'd better not. Some of these jerks won't allow a comment from anyone other than people in their own district.

It's useless trying to silence people, whether it is right or wrong, sooner or later every leech politician will find a reason to utilize the events

i find no reason for sensitivity, iran is not in different planet, what must be clear to everyone however is what is going on now is coming from (inside iran society) and not mobilized from outside

Monte Saigos said...

Naj, thank you for the advice. As an American, I have felt like we needed to take action to offer assistance to any of those resisting and fighting for their fair right to vote. People are dying unjustly. And I also thought the people of Iran need to know people throughout the world are behind them.

I now understand how wrong I was to think that. Thank you for putting this in perspective for me. I will gladly write my congressmen and Senators to not take action or sides and let the people of Iran deal with this themselves. Who are we to meddle in your affairs? On behalf of a lot of Americans, we wish the best for you and your people.

Naj said...

Thank you all!

Aardvark, nice to see you again. Monte, welcome to Neoresistance.

Forgive my not responding to your messages, i am juggling many balls across four time zones, with an ongoing conference, and with no internet connection in my hotel room :)

I am an American who has only recently discovered the world outside of my own small shell... I know that things like this revolution have been going on for centuries, and that corrupt people have ruled with iron fists and cutthroat determination... yet I still find it hard to comprehend the situations that you all are in.
I cannot fully express the sorrow I feel at your loss and your fear, and I doubt that anything I can do or say will ever have an impact on this crisis... But I just want to say to you who are living through this, my thoughts, hopes, and prayers are with you constantly. I admire you for fighting for what you believe in and for what you deserve, despite the horrific consequences. You are heroes! And we care. People do care about each and every one of you, and the hardships you are having to endure. The legacy of your bravery will live forever, and something wonderful will come out of your struggles!
I am just so sorry that you have to live through this! I will write my elected officials, and I will do anything else I can for you... But mostly, I will be thinking of you and praying for your safety and your strength.
Stay strong!
