He denies anything which goes against his views without weighing the facts. It is as simple as that.

Who isn't whining all the time, why the people who's stories you never like to tell. Those happy Iranians that far out number the unhappy Iranians, you know the ones that are grateful to be rid of the murderous tyranny of the Shah.


The Shah is gone. We now know how brutal and repressive his regime was.

We also know the massive bad policies and egregious political blunders of his successors. It all really got off to a bad start. Saddam attacked the unstable Iran claiming a border dispute but really from fear of a Shiite Revolution spreading to his turf. He was repelled. But then in 1982 the Mullahs launched a retaliatory war that lasted 6 years and cost a million lives. The Saudis had offered Iran $70 Billion in reparations to prevent this protracted slaughter which was turned down.

I really don’t want to engage in a bashing session of Iran’s government. Their actions speak for themselves. Unfortunately it's the people who suffer.

Indicators beyond the massive evacuation of millions? Heroin and other opium derivatives usage have reached epidemic proportions, thought to be the highest in the world. Even prohibited alcohol consumption is high.

So how really far along are the Iranian people since the Islamic Revolution and with their new masters?

Really Michael? Heroin and liqour? You forgot to turn them in to the leading export of child pornography while you are making up fictional factoids and tidbits that you lack the on the ground intelligence gathering capability to say...

I almost spit up my Coca Cola reading about Iran continueing to fight the Iraqis attacking their borders as a retaliatory war as being something rather sinister when each and every one of these articles about Iran is aimed at promoting a 'preemptive war against Iran on the part of Israel as some how having some great virtue, one which you see no shame in but want to make it appear sinister that a nation fighting back against an agressor is somehow bad?

Wow, as far as social ills I hear heroin use is on the rise in Israel too as is prostitution and Israel Jewish Girls marrying Palestinian boys! Of course you know where we could make that leading exporter of child pornography charge stick now don't you Michael.

You should stop picking on Iran, both Israel and the U.S./Canada have enough of their own social ills especially since it's been our invasion of Afghanistan that has raised the opium production there 90 fold.

You don't think that might have anything to do with the Middle East's including Israels mounting narcotics problem do you Michael.

I really don't know why you are so reluctant to embrace your Hebrew brother Mr. A, you know he won't be the first Jew to come out questioning the honest events behind the holocaust.

Iran is a much prettier country and a far nicer and more progressive society than Israel.

I think you are just jealous that Mr. A has done such a nice job with Iran while all those IDF Generals that keep running Israel into the ground keep running Israel into the ground.

At least Muslim Clerics don't go around spitting on Christians in Iran like Rabis do in Israel.

I think I would pick Iran over Israel if I had to live in one of the two places. In fact I know I would.

Your arguments are becoming so absurd they don't justify response.

Your friendly neighbourhood Mullah has a different style for dealing with people.


www.islam-watch.org...

The Khomeinist regime of the IRI sent tens of thousands of its own children to their death to clear minefields in its holy war with Iraq’s Saddam Hussein. Not limiting itself to this horrific act, the Khomeinists massacred tens of thousands of political dissenters without the least due process.

Islam watch dot org? Hey that sounds like a reputable source! Really Michael, tell us how Princess Diana was going to go there but the mean Mullahs threatened making her clear mines too.

Chances are they were American made mines, that some how ended up in Iranian soil, and of course we don't vilify the Military Industrial Complex for making mines, just other countries on how they supposedly remove the mines, well according to a reputable website like Islam watch dot org!

Oh Michael do you not see the utter falicy and foolishness in such thinking.

The people who make the mines to kill, sell the mines to kill, profit off of the mines they make and sell to kill are just PRINCES and the poor people who get stuck with hundreds of thousands of them where there children play are scum?

Sadly it usually is children at play who discover the land mines left about by the warmongering elites who profit off of selling them.

Moshe Ahmadinejad has been outed by his fellow 'self hating' Jews....... He's not Jewish after all. I cannot really see this affecting anything as Iran has always been tolerant of the Jews, and other religions in their country as opposed to Zionist Israel


Ahmadinejad has no Jewish roots
www.rys2sense.com...


According to both Naji and Tait, Ahmadinejad's father Ahmad was in fact a religious Shia, who taught the Quran before and after Ahmadinejad's birth and their move to Tehran. So religious was Ahmad Sabourjian that he bought a house near a Hosseinieh, a religious club that he frequented during the holy month of Moharram to mourn the martyrdom of Imam Hossein.

Moreover, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's mother is a Seyyede. This is a title given to women whose family are believed to be direct bloodline descendants of Prophet Muhammad. Male members are given the title of Seyyed, and include prominent figures such as Iran's supreme leader Ali Khamenei. In Judaism, this is equivalent to the Cohens, who are direct descendants of Aaron, the brother of Moses. One has to be born into a Seyyed family: the title is never given to Muslims by birth, let alone converts. This makes it impossible for Ahmadinejad's mother to have been a Jew. In fact, she was so proud of her lineage that everyone in her native village of Aradan referred to her by her Islamic title, Seyyede.

The reason that Ahmadinejad's father changed his surname has more to do with the class struggle in Iran. When it became mandatory to adopt surnames, many people from rural areas chose names that represented their professions or that of their ancestors. This made them easily identifiable as townfolk. In many cases they changed their surnames upon moving to Tehran, in order to avoid snobbery and discrimination from residents of the capital.

The Sabourjians were one of many such families. Their surname was related to carpet-making, an industry that conjures up images of sweatshops. They changed it to Ahmadinejad in order to help them fit in. The new name was also chosen because it means from the race of Ahmad, one of the names given to Muhammad.

According to Ahmadinejad's relatives the new name emphasised the family's piety and their dedication to their religion and its founder. This is something that the president and his relatives in Tehran and Aradan have maintained to the present day. Not because they are trying to deny their past, but because they are proud of it.


NEWS FLASH ~~ MOSHE AHMADINEJAD IS MAHMOUD AGAIN

Now read the TRUTH! The Guardian NEVER prints false information.

According to the Guardian, Iranian president’s previous surname not common among Persian Jews, reason it was changed has to do with class struggle in Iran

Proty,

The Mullahs had tens of thousands of kids blown up in the holy war. They do execute without process whoever they claim breaches the lunatic interpretations of Islam.

Whatever site tells it does not change what has been reported by a thousand sources in a hundred countries.

Going by 30 years of running Iran, I think the Mullahs are irredeemably nuts. I think you share traits with them.

Er, Do You want me to start plastering these fine pages with atrocities beyond comprehension of what the country of Israel has done? Give me the word, and the next 10 pages will be filled with information of what Zionist Israel has done, and it will show they are not the bastion of Democracy, or a Republic in the ME.

I can produce Zionist Terror videos, Zionist usage of WMD's, Zionist Racism towards Arabs, Zionist Hate of Homosexuals, Numerous quotes of superiority, etc, etc, etc.

Now, my sources are from reputable news sources, or from the ole' proverbial camel's mouth. I know You can counter with stuff too. Where does it lead? What is the outcome?

Well, it should be an indicator of the fact Israel isn't the lone duck, and they cannot point any finger without pointing it at themselves first. Where does all of that lead??? It leads to a baseless reason to promote any war.

Popularity, and might is right, truly are not correct.


Lastly, I would suggest to You my dear moshe to go search, read, and learn about this: www.threeworldwars.com...

The fact of the matter is the People of Israel truly are the NWO Illuminated ones sacrificial lamb. The People of Israel will be destroyed should these People get their way, and Your helping them. Wake Up

Total BS.

I posted a summary of the numbers. Anyone can check Wikipedia or any reliable source. Jews and Christians have fled Iran in vast numbers - something like 85%, since the Islamic Republic due to intolerance and persecution.

Israel has become a haven for Christians in the Middle East.

The willful hatred and disinformation being spewed on this thread is stunning.

Why don't you guys just say you hate Jews instead of all this Zionist, Mossad, Jewish Lobby attempted workarounds you feel compelled to supply to give your fixations the appearance of legitimacy.

When you become apologists for the murderous lunatics controlling Iran it really says where you're at.

Here are some links. The fact is that everything now being done to alienate Iran by "cultural" issues is rhetorical upon Israel. Further on from there make no mistake that Israel has Elites, and Netanyahu is just another puppet. I don't know maybe YOU are an elite; so are comfortable sacrificing the Jewish, Christian, and even those dirty little "cockroach"(Israeli PM words) Arabs, but I am not comfortable with sacrificing anyone. AT ALL!

Now here are multiple articles that should take You off the bit of how much more Israel is; so We should bomb Iran because "We are morally superior". The fact is everyone is susceptible to bad choices, and decisions.

Again I would ask You read up on Albert Pike, and www.threeworldwars.com... I would ask not only People of the JIDF, but everyone to look at this site, and learn the true nature behind trying to turn the Middle East into a wasteland.

Christians in Jerusalem want Jews to stop spitting on them
www.haaretz.com...


A few weeks ago, a senior Greek Orthodox clergyman in Israel attended a meeting at a government office in Jerusalem's Givat Shaul quarter. When he returned to his car, an elderly man wearing a skullcap came and knocked on the window. When the clergyman let the window down, the passerby spat in his face

 


Pride and prejudice Despite liberal image, fear and hatred ever-present on Tel Aviv’s streets
www.ynetnews.com...



This shooting attack, should it turn out it was indeed directed at the homo-lesbian community, is not a unique event; it’s merely an extreme one, but make no mistake about it, incidents like that take place on Tel Aviv’s streets time and again with no interruption. About two months ago, two guys were chased by a group armed with baseball bats; before that, two youngsters were stabbed outside a gay club. Meanwhile, numerous cases go unreported.



For those who arrive from the outside it sometimes appears as though the city is painted an especially bright shade of pink; here one can hold hands on Rothschild Boulevard, nonchalantly hop from one club to another, wed, adopt children, and run for city council. Yet for those who live here, the curses, hateful glares, spits, and hidden hostility are clearly felt. The double life: On the one hand one can feel open and safe, but on the other hand nothing is really safe here. Just ask the youngsters who showed up to the weekly meeting at the gay center last night; check who will return next week.

 


'Protecting' Jewish girls from Arabs
www.jpost.com.../JPArticle/ShowFull&cid=1253198149221



But theirs is not a promiscuous search. In fact, the group of some 35 volunteers is looking to prevent such interaction and to stop what neighborhood residents have overwhelmingly complained is a growing problem in Pisgat Ze'ev - Arab men going out with Jewish girls.

What was once a rare occurrence, residents say, has become the norm in this north Jerusalem suburb, which shares a side of the security barrier with the Palestinian village of Anata and the scattered dwellings on the edge of Shuafat refugee camp.



Why are American Jews abandoning Israel?
www.haaretz.com...



To be sure, this is not an Orthodox problem. The young Jews whom Cohen surveyed were almost entirely non-Orthodox. Michaelson and his social circle (where "supporting Israel is like supporting segregation, apartheid or worse") are not Orthodox either. Young Jews who do identify as Orthodox - between 10% and 20% of their age cohort - generally support Israel ardently.

As for other young Jews, Brandeis University researcher Ted Sasson reminds us that young people have for years been more critical than their elders of Israel. Even decades ago, youthful organizations like the New Jewish Agenda and Breira dissented from Israel's policies. Support for Israel, he argues, generally increases with age and experience.

You guys really are obsessive. Feverishly isolating anecdotes from thousands of obscure often dubious sources. Of course ignoring how they line up with what actually went on.

Albert Pike's name keeps showing up in contrived pseudohistories. That's usually a tipoff he said something sometime that fits into the Master Scheme view of world events.

An architect of the New World Order? The Old World Order was doing a fine job of mass exploitation. If it ain't broke, why fix it?

What I see in common with all the Elites is their ability to smartly exploit people's ignorance, gullibility, attraction to simplified answers that relieve them of responsibilities and exonerate their chosen controllers.

There's never a shortage of people who prefer self delusion to hard reality.

Present company not excepted.

a few small details about iranian jews , which someone appears to have overlooked;

when israel was estabilished there were about 150,000 jews living in iran , very soon a good number emigrated , and the numbers slowly declined until 1979, where between 60>80,000 jews lived at the time of the regime change.

straight away the 20,000 most wealthy fled - going to places like Beverly Hills , Santa Monica and on teh east coast , Great Neck , NY.


area`s with *obviously* no money

current population is around 40,000 , and jews are protected by the iranian constituion - in fact in 1979 Haroun Yashyaei said:


Khomeini didn't mix up our community with Israel and Zionism - he saw us as Iranians


www.csmonitor.com...

and heres the figures for thise iranian jews running away in recent years:


2005 > 2006


152

yes 152 - and of those , 90% cited poor economic or family problems rather than anything ploitical


oh you know an iranian jew can *relatively* easily get a visa to visit israel (as easy as a russian can to go to say sweden - which can be a pain) , but the other way? not a chance.

and heres another:

most iranian `ex-pats` in fact moved to israel BEFORE the state was created:

www.migrationinformation.org...

in fact of all the iranian jews in israel - only 15% have moved there since 1975.


not really running away are they.

wonder whats keeping them at home? maybe its because they actually have freedoms and rights , whereas in israel they wouldn`t have as many.


jewish courts operate in tehran



yes you heard that right - the heart of shia muslim - and they honour the jewish courts - the beth`din.


mixed schools - in tehran

www.presstv.ir...

www.thenational.ae...

if your asking about iranian jews - what about Morocco`s jews? 95% have left since the founding of israel - yet you dont hear about this




edit:


an finally


www.jewishagency.org...



Motamed claimed that the lives of Jews in Iran was far better than that of other Iranians and even invited the wealthy Iranian Jewish community to return to Iran


Maurice Motamed was until his 2 terms in office ended the MP for the jewish community in iran.

Michael how is it a person could read a website like Muslim Watch dot Org and take every little tidbit someone probably wrote, compiled and uploaded from their basemenet bedroom in their parent's house as absolute gospel and fact because it's on the INTERNET...

Then that very same person can come here on a site like ATS while claiming nothing anyone suggests that is contrary to what they post is reliable or credible because it came from the INTERNET but what they are posting that came from the Internet is!

Probably the same kind of person who can't even see how hypocritical the Israeli Zionist regime is, as it indiscriminately bombs schools, hospitals and Mosques full of children in one of those unseemly type of 'retaliatory' wars you spoke about that are 'evil' when Iran retaliates against 1 Million Republican Guards from Iraq (Rome) streaming across their border but (virtuous) when Israel retaliates against home made rockets that have to date killed what 1 person from a heart attack because the bang went off at the same instant a seasonal climax on a soap opera was on TV?

Your so called 'Facts' on Iran seem to be 'streaming' faster than the ticker on the New York Stock exchange from sources about as reliable as the Beverly Hills Boys Club!

The endless litany of them and the sheer volume indicate a person on a 'mission'. Terms of Service won't allow me to specify that mission or what I think of it but I have faith that the Above Top Secret crowd can spot and understand a clear Bellow Top Secret effort when they see one!

It's a shame people turn to these boards to promote every day ordinary propaganda when there are such interesting and important conspiracies to discuss.

You know like why some Jews don't want to accept their Jewish Brother Mr. A!

I sure hope there isn't a G-d this would break his heart for sure!

C'mon Proty,

You try to dismiss something because it was found on a site called Muslim Watch. I just plug into Google for Iran and their Holy War - and it pops up. Do you need links to a hundred other sites that say the same in greater detail?

Children dying, political dissidents executed, by the tens of thousands, are a matter of historical record. Initially reported by Iranians who were there.

The Islamic Regime does not have a pretty history.

I'm also no big defender of Israeli. But this board is filled with exaggerations and attacks on them. They defend themselves in a decades long war declared against them. You want to enumerate examples where civilians get killed, I can play that game too. The facts are there.

The Arab League have dedicated themselves to exterminating Israel and routinely target their civilian population. They don't want any more humiliating military defeats so now choose death by a thousand cuts.

Why Iran's Mullahs have a hard-on for the destruction of Israel is a real question. There's no land or resource dispute. There have been no attacks. Maybe they just hate Jews. You think?

But I'm talking to a Muslim apologist so expect some rambling convoluted justification for their demonstrably murderous intent.

There's a reason the world doesn't want Iran to have nukes now. It has to do with the fixations of the people in power there.

Come now Michael, why would I have fought bravely and valiantly my whole life to avoid systematic brainwashing from the establishment to turn around and brainwash myself via the Internet?

That’s just about as dumb as the day is long. I for one would never read anything off of Jew Watch dot Com, I find the very name of it to be repugnant. I could care less what’s on it because obviously they have an agenda where the information being presented is designed for their agenda. I would be no more inclined to take information from a site called Muslim Watch dot Com than I would Jew Watch dot Com.

The Western Intelligence Agencies have a long and sordid history in Iran when it comes to distorting the facts and down right fabricating many others.

One of the big problems with the ‘Squeaky Wheel gets the grease’ method is it also is reminiscent if not identical to ‘Chicken Little and the Sky is Falling’. When the usual suspects like the Western Intelligence Agencies and Media cry wolf often enough and long enough, eventually only a fool or someone with a rabid agenda along the same lines would be interested in believing such fairy tales are credible.

You want real facts, you better get a set of eyes on the real ground you want real facts on and they had better be your own set of eyes, with your own set of ears, with an open but discerning and questioning mind attached.

Only a brainwashed imbecile of limited intellectual capacity or an agenda driven fool would accept these wild and grossly distorted tidbits of misconstrued information as factual or relevant.

That ain’t me Michael!

I live my life absent of fear, absent of paranoia and when I want the facts on something I go to the source not the Internet. I examine the pros and cons of all sides, all angles, and look between the lines in the gray areas as little is often as it is made to appear on the surface by a world full of people practicing the arts of deception with varying degrees of skill and dedication and purpose.

You should too! You are letting your mind and talents go to waste for a questionable and despicable cause.

Mr. A, might not be Jewish but he is a Master Mason, also known as a Templar also known as a Roman.

In my misbegotten youth during my Hollywood days one of my dear friends was a Casting Agent for Aaron Spelling, I am sure you can well imagine what a sought after person he was for any established or want to be actor. The basis of our friendship was history and geography and the fact that I was the only person in Los Angeles according to him that had no desire to become an actor. In other words he could have real conversations with me without there being an ulterior motive behind them. When we would visit together it was most often a nice dinner and then a play at one of L.A.’s many community theatres. His job of course was always to be on the lookout for up and coming talent.

The point being Michael is I have seen more than enough performances to know when something is being ‘staged’.
I have also seen more than enough performances to know when something is being ‘staged’ badly.

This is all being staged and it is all being staged badly!

It’s hard to imagine a person of any intellect not recognizing that. That of course would lead people of intellect to suspect others of intellect of ‘pretending’ that they don’t recognize it is all being staged, and to then have to question their intellect and allegiances based on it being staged so poorly.

People aren’t as stupid as you might like to imagine Michael, bored, disinterested, preoccupied, harried and distracted but ultimately they aren’t stupid, which makes it not just stupid but dangerous in trying to pull the wool over their eyes. The Shah of Iran found that out the hard way. Just as every dog has its day so too does every tyrant.
Remember though he who laughs last, laughs loudest and I have no doubt just who the joke is going to be on in the end. There truly is such a thing as being too clever for one’s own good Michael. Sadly greed and arrogance makes those of diminished intellectual capacity incapable of recognizing that which appears to be so clever is a double edged sword in fumbling and bumbling hands.

Does it really matter if he is jewish? He stands for balance in the middle east, Israel cannot always dominate the middle easts politics, and why should they.

Iran is emerging as a middle eastern superpower, and so let it.

Cant you all comprehend what Iran could do? it could bring peace to the entire middle east and stability....

you all forget that the USA has done everything it can to destablize including funding the PKK and training terrorist orginisations.

Proty,

Calling me brainwashed does not change history. I just supply second hand reports, I don't make up the stories.

A group of Mullahs took over Iran 30 years ago. Holy Wars, financing terrorism, suppression of dissent, human rights violations, hostile politicking, aggressive military build up, and on and on.

The economy is in shambles, the country is isolated even in the Muslim world, Western powers are gravely concerned with their intent.

All this is unnecessary. Running a country is a serious commitment. Massive revenues aren't a slush fund for leaders to indulge themselves.

For the Middle East, Iranian people are a class act. But the cream of them have voted with their feet. They've left.

Internally society is in chaos. The people aren't having fun. Their leaders are working on an agenda that doesn't bode well for their future.

A bad situation that threatens to get much worse.

Were they not resource rich they'd just be another rogue state that has to be tolerated. Now they're playing with nukes. Even their suppliers like Russia are worried. Bad decisions are no longer isolated locally.

Deny it all you want.
