I am proud to call Amil Imani a friend. He is a true son of the enlightened Persian people. We tend to think of Iran in terms of the images we see. Hostage taking lunatics and Holocaust denying clowns.Persia has a history of tolerance that precedes the Islamic invasion.
All righteous people, stand with the people of Iran yearning to be free. There are those who will try and make a new type of pest hole. It is important to remember that Communist colluded with the religious zealots to create the mess we are in today.
Some express surprise about reports of Hezbollah being in Iran. Hezbollah is an Iranian movement and always has a sizeable contingent of people there in for training at any given time.
The current regime is evil to the core. It will kill to perpetuate itself and the Persian people will suffer. Our hope is that there will be a crack in the security forces that refuses to kill their fellow citizens. I am not optimistic, but there is always hope for the future.
Amil is right that as Reagan stood with the folks in Poland, Obama needs to get behind and speak
louder and proclaim his support for the Persian people.
