‘The Western Democratic World Is Assisting the Islamic Republic in Iran to More Brutally Suppress the Voiceless People in Iran’

Violations against human rights by the Islamic Republic in Iran must be seriously investigated by The International Criminal Court and dealt with.

In January 1979, leaders of The United States, England, France and Germany met on Guadalupe Island for a three-day conference from January 3-7 where they decided to remove the Iranian Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, and replace him with Ayatollah Khomeini, a medieval minded jihadi Shiite Islamic leader who was living in exile in France at that time. Those Western leaders thought the Shah was too competent and modern for the Middle East and the West. In this decision, the Iranian nation also played a significant role as without the power of the masses the Western Powers would not be able to overthrow the Shah. At Guadalupe conference, the Western Powers decided to destroy the Middle East, and her peace and stability, which history has proved, and we know what has happened since.

38 years later, on January 16, 2016, the World Powers completed their mission and signed a very dangerous Nuke Deal with the Khomeneist regime in Iran and buried Peace, Freedom and Democracy in the World. The World powers also signed the Iranian nation’s oppression and locked them up in an “Iran jail” for eternity.

But, Western Powers underestimated that while the US released 150 Billion Dollars to the Tehran regime, the Islamic Republic in Iran acknowledged 200,000 armed youth in five countries.  According to a report by AAWSAT.COM, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has four major forces, which are the Ground Forces, Air Force, Navy, and Missile Force. Recently, and according to an expert who observes Iranian affairs, the IRGG introduced its fifth force, which is the “Electronic, Intelligence and Cultural Deterrence Force”  where they also created over fifty proxy Shiite terrorist groups alone in Iraq and Syria.

Iran’s terrorist Forces, IRGC, working outside Iran through its terrorist Quds Forces, which is led by their general Qassem Soleimani, creates massive unrest in the region through their Iranian proxies.

The International community must also be appalled and demonstrate serious concern and outrage about Iran’s human rights record, holding the Islamic Republic accountable for their systematic violations of human rights.

Under the presidency of Hassan Rouhani there is increased numbers of executions, amputations, arbitrary arrest and detention, unfair trials, torture, and ill-treatment of human rights activists, lawyers, journalists, union members, opposition activists, persecution of minorities, including Arabs, Armenians, Azeris, Balouchs, Sunnis, Christians, Jews. Baha’is, and the kurds. Kurds, which make up about 12 percent of the population of Iran, are continually being arrested and executed on various charges, including Moharebeh (being “enmity against God”).

A sad note here is that despite its ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights the Islamic republic of Iran is the highest executioner of juveniles.

Violations against human rights by the Islamic Republic in Iran must be seriously investigated by The International Criminal Court and dealt with.

Under Iran’s present constitution, key members of the government, parliament, judiciary, and military must be Shiites, leaving Sunnis, Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians and others as second-class citizens, facing harsh treatment whenever they practice their faith openly. Sunnis are not granted permits to even build mosques in Tehran and every time they apply for (a) permit, the application gets rejected.

According to Iran’s officials, Iran is the “freest” country and has no political prisoners … BUT, the regime they represent is Free to Humiliate, Free to Imprison, Free to Torture, Free to Rape, Free to Amputate, Free to Execute, and Free to Silence the dissidents and the activists and those who oppose them inside Iran …

This is the regime that Hassan Rouhani is representing, a regime that its head of The Human Rights Council shamelessly proclaims “there is nothing more beautiful than stoning to death, cutting limbs and taking an eye out of its socket! This is Islamic Sharia law at work.”

The Liberal government of Canada, instead of rewarding the Islamic republic in Iran and promising them the reopening of their embassy and Iran -Canada ties, should hold this criminal terrorist regime accountable and stand in solidarity with the voiceless people in Iran, especially the Kurds, and speak against the persecution they continue to endure.

I strongly believe our hardships will overcome if we join together in unity and speak with one voice against this gross injustice that has plagued the United Nations. This overcoming will only happen if we speak up and exert inescapable pressure on local, national, regional, and international governments and organizations.

The desire for rights and freedom is inherent in the nature of our species. For this reason when they are not given, they are demanded. Together we must raise awareness and be the voice of those whose voice are being muted by repression and even now are struggling to be heard, and those who have been silenced and are no longer with us.

We must insure the Islamic republic of Iran hears our message clearly: “Your disingenuous polices, practices, and discrimination are evidence that you are an international outlaw and have no place in the United Nations, and that your inhuman ideology has no place what so ever in the world.”

The truth about the Islamic republic of Iran needs to reach the ears and hearts of the world, for knowledge is the vessel of constructive change.
