Film Footage of Iranian Students Getting Beaten Up

And now here are film footages of Iranian students getting beaten up at Alameh and Amirkabir university:

Herasat Attack 1

Herasat Attack 2

Herasat is a repressive body in every Iranian university and government work place which spies and reports on students and government employees and carries out such repressive acts as shown in the film footages above.

Meanwhile, the chief of these thugs, Ayatollah Messbah Yazdi is invited to the Waterloo university by the Mennonites:

I just hope Iranian ex-pats will do more than just a petition:

From now on the word Mennonite for me will be synonymous with FILTH!

You may wish to know a little about how we Mennonites perceive ourselves. Mennonites are one of the Anabaptists Churches that were born in the furnace of severe persecution during the 16th Century Reformation in Europe. One of the formative books for Mennonite identity is the Martyrs Mirror, which documents the torture and execution of thousands of anabaptists/Mennonites. A classic image from that work is of an anabaptist fugitive who turned to rescue his pursuer from drowning, and as a result was arrested and executed. Love of enemy and a belief that non-resistance is a valid response to persecution are core convictions.

Are we naive? Perhaps. Are we filth?

You are giving Mesbah Yazdi a platform. You are giving a signal to the Iranian people that hey we dont care who persecutes you, we welcome them with open arms and let them make speeches, we dont care if you are persecuted, we wont invite one of you we will just invite your oppressors. That in my view is pure filth!

RSP: Mesbah Yazdi and all the other ruling elite in Iran are enemies of Iran and the Iranian people. Do you see the Iranian people as your enemy? And if you don't, then do you hate your friends?

If the Apartheid regime in South Africa was still in power today, would Waterloo give a platform to one of their officials with extreme racist views? How about the members of any garden variety white supremacy group? Should a member of the Aryan nation be a featured speaker at this university? Should we listen to profanity laced, highly offensive and violently racist views of such groups in order to understand them better?

Yazdi, his ilk and the Mafia like government that they represent are not that different from the members of the Apartheid, Aryan Nation or Taliban for that matter. In fact, the core of their beliefs are very much same which if the fine folks at this institution have not understood by now, compose of violent repression against those who are opposed to their vile ways of how a society should be...ehem...'governed'.

Hate sponsored by a state is still hate and should be condemned in every manner possible - not be given a bullhorn!

We have seen this movie too many times and are far beyond the exploratory phase.

Where are the progressive academics who forced their universities to completely divest their funds from South Africa in the early 80s?

Where are the liberals and humanists who lobbied their governments around the globe to isolate the Apartheid regime which eventually led to its fall?

Where are the feminists whose so called sisters are being abused and oppressed in every conceivable way in the Islamic world by such oppressors as Yazdi?

RSP, Azarmehr is right, MENNONITES ARE FILTH!

The example you gave about rescuing an enemey who is pursuing you is just not the same as promoting an evil person who is persecuting others.

Then again you are an oppressive cult that oppress your own children!

RSP: I know what you say, but also know everythings about Post-Modernism which everything may be happen around us. If you have the paradox because you mix the several parts of several movements in disorder. We live in a new section of Post-Modernism movement and we have to get over the 16th century's reformations, now are we naive or also filth? these are questions which have not any cue for democratic secular world.
Persons as Yazdi are the confused ones who can not stand in modernity and this is the main reason that makes them untrustable evil.

It is wrong to call the Mennonites "filth," simply because they are not, they are the most decent human beings you ever want to know. I have known those who organized this conference for the last 7 years, their intentions are right, they are good human being, the only thing against them is that they are naive, too naive, they are being played by a criminal like Mesbah Yazdi. They are also fooling themselves to think that they can make these guys change. They are absolutely wrong to side with Mesbah Yazdi against his victims, I have told them this many times over.

" Herasat is a repressive body in every Iranian university"
Do you mean "Gestapo " ?
Let's call a 'spade' - black - from now on.
