An Iranian Protester Pleads For US/World Intervention

An Iranian student protester from Tehran spoke with CNN’s “American Morning”, this morning, and made this passionate plea for help from the US and world communities:

Mohammad: Yes. Let me tell you something. For about three decades our nation has been humiliated and insulted by this regime. Now Iranians are united again one more time after 1979 Revolution. We are a peaceful nation. We don’t hate anybody. We want to be an active member of the international community. We don’t want to be isolated… We don’t deny the Holocaust. We do accept Israel’s rights. And actually, we want — we want severe reform on this structure. This structure is not going to be tolerated by the majority of Iranians. We need severe reform, as much as possible.

Roberts: Interesting perspective this morning from Mohammad, a student demonstrator there in Tehran.

Mohammad: Excuse me, sir. I have a message for the international community. Would you please let me tell it?

Roberts: Yes, go ahead.

Mohammad: Americans, European Union, international community, this government is not definitely — is definitely not elected by the majority of Iranians. So it’s illegal. Do not recognize it. Stop trading with them. Impose much more sanctions against them. My message…to the international community, especially I’m addressing President Obama directly – how can a government that doesn’t recognize its people’s rights and represses them brutally and mercilessly have nuclear activities? This government is a huge threat to global peace. Will a wise man give a sharp dagger to an insane person? We need your help international community. Don’t leave us alone.

Read the entire interview.

A  bitter dose of reality  from Andrew McCarthy:

Obama is resigned to Iran getting nukes (perhaps even having them already) and has no intention of doing anything meaningful about it.

The fact is that, as a man of the hard Left, Obama is more comfortable with a totalitarian Islamic regime than he would be with a free Iranian society. In this he is no different from his allies like the Congressional Black Caucus and Bill Ayers, who have shown themselves perfectly comfortable with Castro and Chàvez.  Indeed, he is the product of a hard-Left tradition that apologized for Stalin and was more comfortable with the Soviets than the anti-Communists (and that, in Soros parlance, saw George Bush as a bigger terrorist than bin Laden).

Because of obvious divergences (inequality for women and non-Muslims, hatred of homosexuals) radical Islam and radical Leftism are commonly mistaken to be incompatible. In fact, they have much more in common than not, especially when it comes to suppression of freedom, intrusiveness in all aspects of life, notions of “social justice,” and their economic programs. (On this, as in so many other things, Anthony Daniels should be required reading — see his incisive New English Review essay, “There Is No God but Politics”, comparing Marx and Muslim Brotherhood theorist Sayyid Qutb.) The divergences between radical Islam and radical Leftism are much overrated — “equal rights” and “social justice” are always more rally-cry propaganda than real goals for totalitarians, and hatred of certain groups is always a feature of their societies.

the resistance in Iran continues to fight…and not as “peacefully” as Obama would like:

Question: How on earth do you triumph against a brutal, powerful, and oppressive regime “peacefully”?


Read Christopher Hitchen’s smackdown of Obama’s position on the Iranian election:

That last observation also applies to the Obama administration. Want to take a noninterventionist position? All right, then, take a noninterventionist position. This would mean not referring to Khamenei in fawning tones as the supreme leader and not calling Iran itself by the tyrannical title of “the Islamic republic.” But be aware that nothing will stop the theocrats from slandering you for interfering anyway. Also try to bear in mind that one day you will have to face the young Iranian democrats who risked their all in the battle and explain to them just what you were doing when they were being beaten and gassed. (Hint: Don’t make your sole reference to Iranian dictatorship an allusion to a British-organized coup in 1953; the mullahs think that it proves their main point, and this generation has more immediate enemies to confront.)

Oh come on…Can’t he just eat his waffle (cone)?

This just in from Major Garrett on Twitter:
Gibbs says admin still open to negotiations with ruling Iranian regime on nukes, despite it’s “unjust” acts.


This is just beyond the pale….

Yup: Iran Still Invited For Hot Dogs and Fireworks on July 4th

The United States said Monday its invitations were still standing for Iranian diplomats to attend July 4 celebrations at US embassies despite the crackdown on opposition supporters.

There’s no thought to rescinding the invitations to Iranian diplomats,” State Department spokesman Ian Kelly told reporters.

President Barack Obama’s administration said earlier this month it would invite Iran to US embassy barbecues for the national holiday for the first time since the two nations severed relations following the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Tone. deaf.

People are dying in the streets, an innocent woman shot in cold blood, the regime warns her family not to hold a memorial for her:

Security forces urged Neda’s friends and family not to hold memorial services for her at a mosque and asked them not to speak publicly about her, associates of the family said. Authorities even asked the family to take down the black mourning banners in front of their house, aware of the potent symbol she has become.

And Obama has the unmitigated gall to invite reps from this evil regime to a BBQ on our own Independence Day?

The rumor is; the protesters are pining for GW.

  5. According to the Obama logic even when people are screaming out for liberty and Democracy, we should be quiet, so to not offend the brutal dictators who rule them. He is concerned that the Islamo Nazis will use whatever he says and turn is against us? This reasoning is ridiculous beyond the point of absurdity. It is analogous to allowing a serial killer to go free, in fear that he might get upset with us and blame us for his incarceration. It’s No wonder these regimes hate us, because there are no consequences.
    Obama is willing to sacrifice the youth and millions of Iranians putting their lives on the line, for the chance of talking to evil tyrant Mullahs in charge, who have ignored everyone including the United Nations for the last 3 decades.


  6. The guy in the Whitehouse is, IMnsHO, a closet Muslim. Why else would he bow down to the Saudi king, invite Iranian politicians to 4th of July cookouts at American embassies, and essentially tiptoe through the iranian uprising?
    The last time I checked, the 4th of July was supposed to celebrate our own freedom.
    Just sayin’.


  7. In the end, it will be Israel that does anything to help the freedom fighters of Iran, because we’ve not the stomach for it. We have an elected POTUS that is still below the learning curve on foreign policy. Learning on the job is a long slow process, and painfull for those that are having to watch those first steps and baby falls. Like all babies, they way over estimate their abilities.
