DON’T THEY KNOW?
It is inhumane to deport some one who for what ever reason, political, ideological or social has chosen to leave the country of origin to seek refuge in a different country.
It is not only inhumane, but a crime against humanity to deport an asylum seeker back to the country of origin where there is a risk of persecution, imprisonment, punishment and torture for reasons such as political or sexual orientation, cultural, or religious.
YET to deport a female political asylum seeker to Iran, where they legally pull eyes and call it justice, and slaughter women and call this barbarism “honour,” does not even fit in any of above categories. This outrage is a category for itself.
THE UK IS SENDING AN IRANIAN TO CERTAIN DEATH!
The UK is planning to deport an asylum seeker back to Iran. Her name is Bita Ghaedi. She fears for her life due to her political orientation and her quite normal –according to western standards– lifestyle. This is an outrageous breach of international conventions and should be stopped. We in the name of humanity must keep the hands of the British government and the Islamic regime off of Bita!
JAMAL WAS FIRST, BITA IS SECOND, THEY ARE PRESSURING THE ASYLUM SEEKERS IN TURKEY AND THEY ARE PLANNING FOR THE THIRD AND FOURTH AND… THE HYPOCRITES OF THE “FREE” WORLD ARE SHOWING THEIR TRUE FACES!
Haven’t these rulers of the “FREE” world heard of Kahrizak, Evin, Rajai Shahr? Haven’t they heard of young ordinary people being imprisoned, tortured, raped and executed for they have only shouted a slogan, and probably defended themselves against the regime’s butchers and thugs by throwing a stone?
Do these leaders of the world think that Iranian women, young and old are occupying the first lines of the confrontation against these savages out of boredom? Can’t they put one and one together to gather there is a reason for Iranian masses to pour into the streets and fight the Islamic butchers and rapists despite over 100,000 executions and hundreds of thousands imprisoned, tortured, raped?
Taken by surprise, they actually have said enough not to be able to deny that they have seen and heard all the above. These hypocrites did say “The world is watching; the world is witness!”
WHAT IS GOING ON!
WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS?
We know that these rulers are generally smart enough to comprehend the importance of our political activities against the Islamic regime, especially since the last election. They surely are aware of the Islamic republic’s fear of anti-Islamic regime activities abroad. We know that they have good enough recollection of assassinations carried out by the Islamic regime in the whole European continent in early 1990s to silence the opposition.
The Islamic regime has only one way to hold its fragile balance against the revolutionary movement inside Iran. The Islamic regime’s officials have been explicit about this. They have killed, raped, and imprisoned thousands, and officially announced that they will resort to the same mass executions of the 1980s, which by now, and thanks to the current movement, the whole world is aware of. Yet they have not succeeded in silencing the people and failed to intimidate the masses inside for reasons. Iranian refugees’ activities all around the world is one, but a very crucial one!
The movement outside Iran has played a decisive role in blocking the regime’s attempt to suppress the movement inside. Outside Iran, the Islamic regime has been experiencing defeat after defeat. Activities of Iranian dissidents, the Iranian migrants and refugees, have become an ever greater threat. We have played a decisive role in maintaining a constant flow of information; have effectively paralyzed the Islamic republic’s propaganda machine. The parody of the INTERPOL Red Notice List and the Islamic regime’s courts outside of Iran, although too ridiculous to be taken seriously, nevertheless indicate the regime’s desperate moves to find a foothold outside of Iran.
We are the extended arm of that revolution, a revolution for gender equality, for universal human rights and for unconditional democracy and freedom. As long as the revolutionary movement outside Iran is vital, the Islamic regime can not even regain the previous level of international recognition, let alone improve political and economic ties with the West.
• The Islamic republic knows and has been quite explicit about the above.
• Rulers of the world’s “democracies” know this.
• And so do we the people, Iranians or non-Iranians
While the Islamic regime has been suffering from constant beatings in the hands of the Iranian and in many cases non-Iranian activists outside; while all the attempts to “control the damage” outside Iran have been countered by us, leaders of the “free” world have recovered from their initial shock. They have understood that this is nothing like what they wanted! They hoped for a reform, a superficial change like the waves of “colour” or “velvet” revolutions in the East European and Central Asian countries, and they face an ever-deepening radical movement which is going to deeply affect the politics of the region if not the whole world… and they don’t want this.
Can any one deny the devastating implications of delivering Iranian activists to the Islamic regime?
Silencing the Iranian dissidents outside Iran, detaining them in political prisoners’ camps in Japan, violently detaining them in the UK, and forcing them to hunger strike in Turkey are parts of policies adapted by these governments against our revolution as gestures to normalize their relations with the Islamic regime “conveniently” weakened by the uprising. They are lending a hand; they are signalling their willingness to play ball on new terms. BUT to us, to Jamal and Bita this is indeed the extended hand of the regime of Kahrizak and Evin.
• The Islamic republic knows and humbly appreciates this.
• Rulers of our “democracies” know this.
• And so do we the people, Iranians or non-Iranians.
WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN.
The irony is that this is history repeating itself. The West chose Khomeini over a politically radical social revolution to maintain their economic and geopolitical interests in 1979, and now, facing another revolution, they choose Khomeini’s regime over the people’s revolution once again.
BUT a lot has changed since the last revolution.
They are blinded to the facts and they do not see the differences!
• Our revolution is supported by millions all around the world.
• We will organize and mobilize our forces, not only the 6 million Iranian immigrants but millions of honourable non-Iranians, Brits, Japanese, Americans, Turks, Germans… and force these governors of the “FREE” world to respect our right to “FREEDOM.”
• We will fight back and defend our human rights outside Iran as well as inside.
• We will not allow these hypocrites to lay their fingers on Jamals and Bitas.
• This is our revolution and our rules; this time they’d better get used to it.
• The whole world is watching you!
BRITISH GOVERNMENT’S HANDS OFF BITA GHAEDI AND ALL OTHER IRANIAN REFUGEES!
ALL IRANIAN WOMEN HAVE RIGHT TO POLITICAL ASYLUM!
NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL!
