Celebrating Nowruz by the Tomb of Cyrus in Pasargadae

The Islamic Republic has never liked Cyrus the Great. Not only does Cyrus represent the glory of the pre-Islamic Iran, but the values that Cyrus stood for; i.e. tolerance, freedom of choice, freedom of religion etc. are all but the nemesis of this theocratic regime.

The mad cleric, Sadegh Khalkhali, as a result of his illiteracy and stupidity even misinterpreted a word in a book about Cyrus's youth and happily concluded that Cyrus was as a transverstite and thus thought he had demolished the reputation of the great founder of the Persian empire; of course little did he know that he was only making a fool of himself.

Thirty four years after all the animosity of the clerics towards Cyrus, the father of the Iranian nation , he is still revered by his descendants.

The following footage shows a gathering of young Iranians last week, celebrating the Iranian new year, Nowruz, by the tomb of Cyrus the Great and chanting:

Iran is our Country/ Cyrus is our father
Neither Gaza or Lebanon/I die only for Iran

Nowruz is the eternal symbol of rejuvenation. The revival of nature, when the new replaces the old

Hope the Good will not stay silent and evil will not triumph

Happy Nowruz friends.

The Gathering of Misfits

Ahmadinejad embracing Chavez's mourning mother, must be one of those rare occasions where you would hear me say kudos to Ahmadinejad for doing so.

While the cleric accompanying Ahmadinejad. Mir-Tajedini, was trying to pull away Ahmadinejad's arm and remind him that the Islamic Republic's warped and archaic protocol requires Iranian diplomats and officials to avoid any physical contact, including a simple handshake with women; Ahmadinejad ignored Mir-Tajedini and went ahead to fully embrace Chavez's 75 year old mother.

Imagine how embarrassing it would have been if Ahmadinejad shunned away from a grief stricken 75 year old mother who needed a moment's comfort from her dead son's best friend. Kudos to Ahmadinejad for showing courage and defying a silly and hypocritical protocol.

Lets not however forget the gathering of so many misfits under one roof in Chavez's funeral, as shown in the symbolic picture above. The mad Belarus president, Alexander Lukashenko, with his little mini-Lukashenko, or his "Talisman", as he calls him, always by his side at all events, facing Ahmadienjad across Chavez's coffin.

Lukashenko, an unrepented Stalinist, calls himself an "orthodox atheist". Across the coffin is the messianic Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who sincerely believes he is paving the way for the return of the  "Hidden Imam" to establish the most pious world order. Inside the coffin and under the cross of Jesus, lies Hugo Chavez, who Ahmdinejad thinks will accompany the Hidden Imam and Jesus Christ as they return to establish the new world order.

Ahamdinejad’s Message of Condolence for Hugo Chavez

Ahmadinejad, in his message of condolences for Hugo , published on his official website, referred to Hugo Chavez as a "Martyr of service to the people of Venezuela, who died as a result of
a suspicious death"

Ahmadinejad added "I have no doubt, Chavez will return with Jesus Christ and all the other righteous ones, along with that only one remaining from
the generation of the pure, that complete human being [the Hidden Imam] and Hugo will help the human society bring about peace, complete justice, kindness and perfection. "

"until justice and love is alive, Hugo is alive. Until faith, pureness and humanity is alive, Hugo is alive too

He was deeply monotheist and committed to divine and human values and believed in the path of Gods messengers and the global rule of justice and love under the leadership of the righteous ones"

Sanctions Are not the Cause of Iran Medicine Crisis

Here is yet another example of Iranian medicine officials spelling out the problems and causes of the current medicine crisis in Iran.

Mehdi Mohamadzadeh, Head of Iran's Association of Pharmaceutical Medicine Economics in an interview with the official Fars News Agency said "Of course we are in a dire economic situation, but with regards to medicine, there are no sanctions against us and the world's large pharmaceuticals are not reluctant to sell medicine to us. They are willing to co-operate, so long as they get paid"

Mohamadzadeh who is also a member of the Medical Sciences Scientific Committee at Beheshti University added "The cause of the crisis is that either very little government rate currency is allocated or it is paid late."

Mohamadzadeh's statements are in tune with what the rest of Iranian medicine officials, including the former Health Minister, Marzieh Dastjerdi, have said repeatedly. "Medicine crisis in Iran is nothing to do with sanctions" as former Health Minister kept saying before she was sacked by Ahmadinejad.  All the officials who are involved in the medicine import to Iran have been pinpointing the problem at medicine import companies, not receiving the allocated government rate currency to import the drugs with. The government rate currency is instead used to import luxury cars and non-essential goods like horse saddles, cosmetics and spade handles.

Yet if you just google for "Medicine Crisis in Iran", you will see sensational headline after headline on how people are dying in Iran as a result of sanctions.

"Iran unable to get life-saving drugs due to international sanctions" - Guardian
"Zionist-devised US sanctions bar medicines from Iran" - Press TV
"Iran sanctions disrupt the medicine supplies" - BBC
"US led Iran sanctions blocking medical treatment to thousands of Iranians" -
"US led Iran sanctions put millions of lives at risk" - Stop the War
"Iranian Mothers for Peace alert the world on sanctions and critical shortage of medicines" - Farid Marjai and Mehrnaz Shahabi in Stop the War Coalition - [they also quote the Guardian hoax on the Iranian haemophiliac boy ]
"In Iran, Sanctions take their toll on the sick" - Washington Post

There is just an unbound amount of unfounded and uncorroborated material in the Western media on how sanctions are killing Iranians by denying them vital medicines and yet the people in Iran know who is to blame and the officials involved in Iran's pharmaceutical industry have said the medicine crisis is nothing to do with sanctions.

Iranian regime lobbyists are hard at work in the West however. They are trying to influence the media, the think tanks, the peaceniks and policy forums and sell a story to the world which has nothing to do with the facts on the ground.

Gary Sick's cronies and paid lobbyists made sure I couldn't disseminate what was being said by Iranian pharmaceutical officials and media to the G2K mailing lists.  The aim is to suppress the truth and appeal to the useful idiots around the world, people with good intentions who are short on facts.

Why the Islamic Republic is not giving priority to importing medicine can be summed up in one sentence "the sick don't riot".
