Iranian exile speaks out against militia he once supported


www.latimes.com

Reporting from Berlin -- For people around the globe, the images of club-wielding men on motorcycles beating demonstrators on the streets of Tehran was just another case of brutality in a far-off land.

But as he watched the violence of recent weeks unfold on television and YouTube, Amir Farshad Ebrahimi, an exiled Iranian, recognized some of the attackers.

They were once good friends.

His life, encapsulating the betrayals and disappointments that followed Iran's tumultuous revolution 30 years ago, as well as the hopes and fears of Iranians now living abroad, had come full circle.

I've heard many stories that are similar to this one - truth about the history of this regime and the end-game that their own actions are now causing.

This is why so many Iranian's live abroad.

Whinge whinge whine, ex communist moaning cause he got screwed over by the animal he and his buddies aided and unleashed upon the country against the shah.

Not quite the great revolution he thought it would be i imagine, or his mates that weren't so lucky to escape and where either shot or are still in jail thanks to the kanagaroo trails.

Let that be a lesson to all communist sympathisers around the world who think Islam is their friend and wants to help them with their 'revolution'. Soon their won't be any places to run or hide too like this chap has managed.

I think it's unfair to be too judgemental about those born into these situations. Iran from 1979 has been an Islamic country, not communist, although they are both as bad to some extent.

This story is interesting as it outlines why many Iranian's have left Iran forcibly for standing up to their oppressors. Whether he was part of this bad system before and is at some fault is not for us to judge, the Iranian people can judge him, and at least it appears he made some right decisions from his story presuming it's true.

It takes a brave man to take on the regime like that, and only a coward would continue to work with this regime and opprese, beat and murder innocent people. As is going on now with many still there.

But yes it does seem he made some poor decisions about joining the Islamics in the first place. Maybe with hindsight he wouldn't have made the same decisions, and realised the Islamic revolution was a disaster, and it should be a lesson for all not to repeat this mess.
