  2. The first comment is coming from an ignorant person who is either a zionist idiot pro apartheid state who have committed numerous genocide, assassinations, thousands of prisoners, many children, massacre, invasion of neighboring countries, targeted assassination and ethnic cleansing in her short lived history or is another Zionist stooge hiding behind phony ‘human rights’ of the West who designed and implemented 9/11 terror to construct a pretext to invade and kill millions of Muslim in various countries with NO REASONS to serve the interest of Israel, where these stooges have said nothing to protect human lives of many and humanity in general.
    Where is your voice against the war criminals and occupiers in the M.E, Central Asia, and Africa? Where is your voice against Zionist crimes against humanity when they killed thousands of people many children? Where is your fucking voice when Americans soldiers raped many Muslims, males and females, in many covert and overt bases around the world? Where is your fu*ing voice when American war criminals kidnapped Dr. Arifa Siddiqui, US educated with her 3 children in the street of Pakistan and transferred her to a base in Afghanistan to torture her where separated her children from her which yet to see her children? What for? To frame her as an Al Qaeda operative where Al Qaeda DOES NOT EXIST and Bin Laden, a CIA agent was killed in 2001, according to Benazir Bhutto? Where is your voice?
    Sakineh Ashtiyani, was on trial because she murdered her husband with a pillow, according to her own confession, in her lover presence. She was not sentenced yet, idiot, to anything. This is a LIE that the West and the Iranian traitors are making for propaganda purpose to divert people’s attention from their own daily crimes against humanity in the occupied Islamic countries and in occupied Palestine, idiot. STOP LYING.

  4. Nothing interestng here. He’s a political professional with his redirections and evasions, which are no more or less coherent, just, or solid than the redirections and evasions of political professionals in the West.

  5. Right, eatbees, except the “political professionals in the West” don’t get their country threatened with bombing when they desire to make electricity with nuclear reactors.

    Whatever your view of the “Islamic” Republic, there can be NO justification for executing an innocent 62-year old man. This is totally unjust and inhuman.

  8. Why don’t you save 58 American women who are on death row? and leave Iranians alone.

  10. “Stop Zionist Propaganda”? Are you kidding? Since when does supporting basic human rights have anything to do with Zionism? If you think the two things are equivalent, then *you* are most likely the “zionist” here.

    Your other insinuation is that the Iranian theocracy and Zionist apartheid are somehow diametrically opposed. They are not. Throughout the 1980s Israel sent arms to Iran, and supported the clerics against Saddam Hussein.

    According to John Bulloch and Harvey Morris

    “it was Israel which kept Iranian planes flying in spite of a lack of spares; and it was Israeli instructors who taught the new young Iranian commanders how to handle troops, how to move their forces about and how to exploit the openings made by the fanatically brave young volunteers who died in their thousands in the human-wave assaults. Above all, it was the Israelis who involved the Reagan administration in the Iran-Contra affair. For all the speeches of Iranian leaders, the diatribes against Israel, the denunciations at the Friday prayers, there were never less than about a 100 Israeli advisers and technicians in Iran at any time throughout the war, living in a carefully guarded and secluded camp just north of Tehran; they remained there even after the ceasefire”

    Bulloch, John, The Gulf War : Its Origins, History and Consequences by John Bulloch and Harvey Morris, London : Methuen London, 1989, p.17

    “According to Dr. Trita Parsi, author of “Treacherous Alliance – The Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran and the United States,” (Yale University Press, 2007), Iran’s strategic imperatives compelled the Khomeini government to maintain clandestine ties to Israel, while hope that the periphery doctrine could be resurrected motivated the Jewish State’s assistance to Iran.”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeli_support_for_Iran_during_the_Iran%E2%80%93Iraq_war

    So wake up, ignoramus! The two of them work together! And their common enemy of is Pan-Arab nationalism.

    Lastly, you say “Why don’t you save 58 American women who are on death row? and leave Iranians alone”

    Although i oppose the death penalty in all cases, I could simply respond to you: “Why don’t you leave Americans alone?” And since i don’t know the circumstances of each of these cases, it would be difficult to say much about them. No doubt the reasons in each case are diverse, and cannot be all lumped into one catch-all “Opposing God” or whatever euphemism the fascistic clerics are currently using to stamp out all dissent.

  11. {Your other insinuation is that the Iranian theocracy and Zionist apartheid are somehow diametrically opposed.}

    This is the signature of the Zionist Jews who are acting on behalf of majority of the so called Trotskyist parties but they in fact protect the interest of apartheid state. Israel is a theocracy according to many yet the zionist Jews never mention it. These zionists hide themselves behind an empty slogan “anti imperialism” where in fact supports because Israel sucks the blood of Imperialism to expand her interest. As Gilad Otzmon said: Israel has brought down 3 empires, Britain, French and now American because cling to the dominant power to expand its own interest.
    The Zionist Jews hiding behind the phony mask of “left’ in fact protect Imperialism to expand Israel’s interest. For example, Chomsky who is famous for his view as an ‘anti imperialist’ is the one who protects US role in 9/11 terror because he is afraid the hand of Israel be exposed as well. More than 1100 architects and engineers, according to evidence on the ground, want another truth seeking conference to prove that the 9/11 terror WAS AN INSIDE JOB but Chomsky rejects this as conspiracy theory. Why the phony left at this site does not bring the name of so many victims of zionim and imperialism, in thousands, perhaps millions, but is involved in the zionist worldwide propaganda campaign against Iran where the latest case was Sakineh Ashtiyane who was on trial for murdering her husband but no stoning was involved whre the lie about her case becomes the concern of so many zionist leaders around the world?
    The Iranian ‘left’ who were deeply involved in this propaganda, started another lie that Hossain Derakhshan is about to be executed to engineered another campaign because Ahmadinejad was at the UN meeting. These are all propaganda by the fucking zionists since they want another war. They benefited greatly from Iraq war that the zionist Jews waged and now are pushing for Iran war. You have been exposed and NO ONE WANTS ANOTHER WAR.

    There are so many US citizens who are being held and have been prosecuted as ‘al Qaeda’ operative where the ‘left’ at this site does not talk about but when a fly goes on trial in Iran for his/her treasonous act, it becomes international news, why is that? We know there IS NO AL QAEDA. It has been constructed by the imperialism and Zionism to frame Muslims. You like zionism and imperialism fighting against Muslim not either imperialism or zionism. Whom do you intend to fool?

  12. “fairness”

    I’m not sure who exactly you’re addressing here. And although 90% of what you say is true, it is NOT true that criticism of Iran is tantamount to Zionist or imperialist propaganda. Aside from basic logic of this, it is also true because THERE WILL BE NO INVASION OF IRAN. After seven years of threatening an invasion, and simultaneously working ever more closely with Iran in Afghanistan and Iraq, the US is not about to go and throw away this profitable relationship. They have way too much to lose.

    You say: “when a fly goes on trial in Iran for his/her treasonous act”.

    But we’re not talking about flies. We’re talking about people, and people executed for non-violent(non)offences, such as “mohareb”, and other ideological “crimes”. I fail to see how keeping ours mouths shut over this helps the cause of anti-imperialism.

    By defending Iran, you defend the forces that murdered tens of thousands of Sunni arabs and ethnically cleansed Baghdad in 2007. Since this effectively put an end to the liberation struggle in Iraq, where is the “anti-imperialism” that supposedly makes Iran a target? Any explanations people?

    And for the record, i am anti-imperialist, anti-zionist, AND pro- 9/11 truth. Yes, Chomsky is a fraud. I wrote about that 4 years ago: http://www.israelshamir.net/Contributors/Contributor40.htm

  13. Fairness:

    That percentage of your speech that’s full of shit is the part that imagines any serious follower of Trotsky would have any allegiance, affinity, sympathy, or anything good to say about Israel, ever.

    The most vociferous Trotskyist group in the USA, for example, the Workers World Party, are ardent anti-Zionists and organize to defend Palestinians every week since long before even the first Intifada. They supported the Palestinians right to choose Hamas on the leninist principle of the right to self-deterimation. They cheered when the Lebanese people stopped the Zionist military a few years ago and even likened the organizational structure of Hezbollah as partly similar to the original Soviets insofar as they were the only entity that armed the masses for struggle, fed them, clothed them & sheltered them.

    They even cheered in standing ovation when in a packed meeting hall live broadcasts announced SCUD missiles landing in Tel Aviv back in 1992, even though more than half those in attendence had Jewish parents, so don’t tell me about any Trotskyists that defend Zionism because there are none with any political significance in the USA.

    On the contrary, they have in fact consistently organized the largest pro-Palestinian marches(several over 10,000) and 4 marches of over 100,000 since 1992 against imperialist war in Iraq.

    Now maybe there’s some politically insignificant groups in other parts of the world that say they’re Trotskyist who defend the fascists in Israel but I’ve never heard of any let alone met them. If there are then they’re no doubt the same kinds of idiots that cheered on Glasnost & Perestroika back in 89 — but welcoming that kind of counterrrevolution has absolutely nothing in common with Trotsky’s thinking.

    Just because maybe (I’m guessing) some Arab or Persian Stalinists fear & loathe Trotsky’s thought, partly because his parents were Jewish and mostly because he so thoroughly documented the Thermidorian reaction in the USSR and predicted its pathetic collapse — doesn’t mean Trotsky would have anything but bitter contempt for Israel were he alive to witness their hideous evolution as a State, a State which I’m sure he’d agree would have been driven into the sea decades ago if it weren’t for the unmitigated support of the Pentagon.

  14. On Thursday night, Virginia executed 41-year-old Teresa Lewis. Shame on Zionist puppets including Hillary Clinton who only shed crocodile tears for Sakineh Ashtiyani in a target country like Iran but NO WORDS on the case of Tressa Lewis who was executed last night (sept. 23rd) for killing her husband. Sakineh Ashtiyani was on trial for killing her husband too, but these Zionist stooges used her trial to spread lies and deception against Iran because their job is to serve the interest of Zionism, which identify them as FIFTH COLUMN in each country. That’s why all the Zionist western stooges who call themselves ‘feminists’ have NO RESPECT AROUND THE WORLD since these war criminals only engaged themselves in Zionist propaganda using targeted countries’ court cases. She and other stupid feminists in the west who belittle themselves further by coming to ‘rescue’ Sakineh received the middle fingers of all informed people.
    Down with zionist stooges.

  15. Does zionist stooge, Hillary Clinton, has anything to say about Dr. Aafia Siddiqui who was kidnapped with her children in the street of Pakistan and transferred to CIA mass killers in Afghanistan to go under torture? AL QAEDA DOES NOT EXIST. The zionist stooges must be arrested and torture and convicted of mass murder of Muslims as well as the zionist Jews to give them a lesson that they can not run the world using torture, assassination and genocide. Down with the zionist fascists.

  16. “Sarah”, for consistency’s sake, could you please use the same name each time you post? Like maybe Steven Dorkhead? Let me tell you something, Steven. It does not make you come across as very intelligent when you use a term like “Zionist Jews”. Religion/ethnicity is not the issue. It is a reactionary nationalism instead. When you throw the word “Jews” around, you come across like a mouth-breathing stupid-head.
