Ellian Blogs: an expert witness in defense of Wilders

Ahmadinejad Says Iran Is Ready For Talks With ...Image by USb_cABLE via Flickr
Collating Nazism and Islamism

Those in power in Islamist Iran represent a pure form of political Islam. It is a unapologetic form of Islamofascism, which includes antisemitism. The self-appointed President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad often expresses himself in antisemitic terms. Are there any other functionaries in the Islamic Government like that?

Ayatollah Khamenei is supported by other antisemitic clerics holding an ideology that is apocalyptic in nature. They believe that the appearance of the 12th Imam must be triggered through strife and mayhem (like any other collectivist, Utopian narrative, CT).

Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi is Khamenei's most important supporter. He sits on a great number of Government bodies. In an address on January 5 he elaborated at length on the Jewish question. (...) Yet Mesbah Yazdi's speech sounds strangely familiar. Jog your mind and replace Islam with Arian race. We've heard these words uttered during the thirties of the last century. I don't intend to demonize Mesbah Yazdi.

He is allowed to hate Jews and the state of Israel. Nevertheless, the narrative is the same as Nazi propaganda. It is the style of (Hitler's book, CT) Mein Kampf (which includes Hitler's German Volk victimhood narrative, never to be underestimated as a justification for violent action: "we are under attack!", CT). Geert Wilders MP should subpoena Mesbah Yazdi as an expert witness. Mesbah Yazdi must be questioned about his views on Jews. Are they rooted in the Koran? The proceedings must be broadcast live. Islam will be on trial. (...) >>>

Breaking News From Iran - Mutiny in the Military

Pundits and diplomats have been wondering why the Iranian regime is loath to use the China model against protesters and opponents in the Green Wave movement. The China model stands for an extremely brutal, widespread and violent crack down on the opposition. Well, what does it mean?

Tanks and armed military charging and firing into the crowds. A wave of executions is also included in the model. Applied to Iran that would mean deploying around three in the morning and arresting anyone 'green'.

All means of communication are shut down simultaneously. Citizens will be waking up to an address by the leader who declares the rallies over. Thousands will be executed. Swiftness and brutality is the essence of the China model. Why doesn't Khamenei do that?

He pondered it this summer before he became indisposed. He even gave the order to arrest opposition leader Mousavi. But he withdrew the order when he was told that Iran would explode. But a more important reason may be found in the military themselves. (...) >>>

A Crucial Day for the Iranian Resistance

(...) In an article on Wall Street Journal Ellian explains the unique and specific nature of the Iranian theocracy:

The regime's theological nature gives it a very different perception of reality. Despite the popular unrest and growing rift between the regime and the military and clergy, Ahmadinejad has no reason to see himself as weak or illegitimate. In his world view, bolstered by people such as Ayatollah Yazde, his regime does not rely on the consent of the people or dissident ayatollahs. Instead, it gains its legitimacy by its obedience to Allah. The regime surely fears the people, but controlling the masses serves the greater cause of obedience to Allah and therefore the interests of the people are of no real importance to this regime.
Ellian also has an important post up on Elsevier on events during Ashura on December 27 and today, a crucial day in the resistance against Islamofascism. As it's very lengthy I'll limit the translation to the main points:

Sunday marked the bloodiest Ashura in Iran's history. Ahmadinejad claimed the protests were stoked by the Americans and Israelis. A video shows a police car purposefully careering into the public. More video. (...) >>>

The Women of the Iranian Vanguard

The entire regime is in question. There are many dead and wounded; hundreds of protestors have been arrested. Primarily women.

Protestors have also addressed American foreign policy. Not against the country, but the President: "Obama, Obama, are you with us or with them?"

[Grim video material of street clashes moved to file.]

While Obama has already written two dear-Iranian-leader letters, the people themselves have called on him to support them instead. American foreign policy is called into question.

The world has noticed the role of women in the revolt against the Islamists. Also last week women took the lead. Oxfort University has instituted a philosophy scholarship in the name of Neda.

The Revolutionary Guard (RG) is prepared to crack down hard. A boy in Isfahan was shot to death as he prepared to enter his home.

Also the Basij militia is unleashed on the people. (...) >>>

The West Must Support the Iranian People

(...) Last Friday once again hundreds of thousands of people hit the streets. According to several witnesses Tehran's streets contained a million people and more. The BBC states the people shouted: "Azadi, azadi (freedom); Mousavi, we support you." (...) This is just unbelievable. The people have a political consciousness. Yes, the Americans and the Israelis have nothing to do with the situation in the country. But Russia does. The Russians and the Chinese are loyal allies of the regime. They were among the first to congratulate and acknowledge Ahmadinejad as President. The people know the security forces are trained principally by the Russians. (...) Moscow must understand that if the people succeed in toppling Ahmadinejad's and Khamenei's regime, such dealings will be over. (...)

Well informed sources have told me that on June 15 Rafsanjani took delivery of a letter sent by the Revolutionary Guard's High Command. The letter consisted of eight lines, conveying two messages: (a) There's still a red line that must not to be crossed. (b) This goes for Rafsanjani as well, and if he joins Mousavi, the Revolutionary Guard (RG) will act mercilessly. The letter was signed by Jafari (Supreme Commander of the RG). The letter ended: cc Ayatollah Khamenei. I've never heard of such a thing in my life! Cc the leader. This means that real power is no longer in the hands of Khamenei. In power are a number of very radical ayatollahs and the RG.

I hope Western Governments are aware of that, because it is with these people, and not with Khamenei, that they must negotiate Tehran's nuclear ambitions. (...) The turban tumbled! Isn't that symbolic for the Islamic regime itself? Islamofascism without a turban! Perhaps the end of Iranian Islamism is neigh. (...) >>>

Allah's Sons Keep Up the Killing in Iran

Nega Agha Soltan, who died before the eyes of millions of people, was the first symbol of the Iranian resistance against the Islamic regime. She is now accompanied by a new symbol of innocence: nineteen year old Sohrab Arabi. An innocent young man who went with the Persian, green flow. One morning he said goodbye to his mother. Then he took to the streets to fight for the Republican ideal of liberty. It unavoidably clashed with the Islamic Caliphate. He never returned home.

His mother went to Ewin Prison. She was told her son had been arrested. But last Saturday (July 11) - almost one month later - she learned from Mortazawi, the Officer of Justice of the Revolutionary Court of Tehran - that her son may be dead. As stated, Mortazawi earlier indicated Sohrab had been arrested. She was sent to the Security Department where she was shown the photos of some sixty corpses. Her son was in one of those pictures. Yes, the assassinated Sohrab was one of them. (...)

How many protesters are being killed in Iran by the sons of Allah? The exact figure is unknown. Over five thousand! How many injured? Several thousand. Will it withhold the people from demonstrating? No. Last week, July 9 thousands of people again hit the streets of Tehran, Tabriz, Shiraz, Isfahann, Ardebil, Kurdistan Mas'had and other cities to commemorate the 1999 student uprising. These demonstrations are well documented. How long will they keep it up? No one knows.

(...) We must also remember all the other mothers of missing and murdered children. We must not forget they're fighting for and are being killed for the values we in the West think of as normality. But the mother of Framarz, my uncle's son, was not even allowed to bury her child. My uncle died two days before the elections. He had to mourn his missing child in silence. Now all of Iran is mourning her missing children. Oh, it is unbearable. (...) >>>

Confessions of a Rebel: "Why I Strayed"

In the name of the merciful and forgiving Allah,
Hail to the Great Khomeini, the spirit of Allah, the sword of imam Ali, et cetera;
Hail to the Great Leader Khamenei, the righteous and clever shepherd of this people, et ectera;
Hail to Mohammed, the last, most beautiful and, yes, the cleverest Prophet of all time, and his many women and concubines, et cetera;
Hail to the martyrs, their brave (benefits eligible) family members, asses and goats;
Brothers and sisters,
>While I stem from a family of godfearing people I have betrayed you, Islam, and Islamic Iran multiple times. Some of my family may have drank scotch, but that was the fault of the Shah, who was destroyed by his infidelity. (...) >>>

Today in Iran: the anniversary of the 1999 student uprising

Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme sacred and secular leader of Islamic Iran, has closed the file on the rigged elections. This is strange, because every night around 10PM the sky of Tehran is filled with the sounds of "Allahu Akbar, death to the tyrant!"

On the highest echelons of power there's still speculation whether to depose the selfproclaimed President Ahmadinejad and supreme tyrant Ali Khamenei. The regime is split about the way in which Khamenei exerts power.

For the first time in the history of the Islamic Republic there's division and strife between fatwa eligible ayatollahs. A number of respected ayatollahs have fatwahed Ahmadinjad's presidency illegal. And some have declared the actions by the Revolutionay Guard and the paramilitary haram (forbidden). Yet Khamenei declares the protests ended. Khamenei makes a crucial mistake. (...) >>>

A Cry for Help from a Sea of Flowers and a Desert of Death

The world commemorates Neda. Last Friday thousands of Persians went in mourning to Tehran Cemetery where Neda and other victims of the Islamofascist regime lay buried. A sea of flowers in a desert of death. Remembrance and mourning are the only weapons at the disposal of powerless people. This is our weapon against those in power, who wish to expunge history.

You, dear reader, needs to jump into action. Act against torture! Already thousands of citizens, prominent politicians and mainly young people have been arrested. The messages human rights organizations and I have received are very worrying indeed. The mullah regime tortures without restraint. They want to force confessions. (...) >>>

Iran: an Update and an Exposé of the Paramilitary

Iran's security system is violent and totalitarian through and through (...) who are the men atttacking civilians (...) who leads them (...) who protects the regime?

1. Ansar Hezbollah. Shortly after the revolution groups of men came together and called themselves Hezbollah [the party of Allah]. These consisted of scum and ultra religious people. They attacked opponents with knives and other weapons. They made victims everywhere: left, right, liberal intellectuals, and even moderate believers. Hezbollah was above the law and was protected by the leader of the revolution, imam Khomeini. They were refered to as the SA [Sturmabteilung, Storm Troopers] of the regime.

2. The Revolutionaire Guard (RG) was also founded after the revolution for the defense of Islam and the new regime. They too resorted directly under the imam. RG probably consists of 120,000 men of which eighty percent are conscripts. The latter are a security risk for the regime. (...) >>>

Behind the scenes of a popular revolt (narrative)

(...) Dutch-Iranian refugee, pundit and Leiden University lecturer, Afshin Ellian has another great post up at Elsevier. He disects the erratic Obama policies and in an astute analysis calls him "not the President of ethics, but the President of polls". With reference to the 4th of July invitation extended before the Iranian elections and affirmed only last week, Ellian wonders what Obama believes the relationship is between the Islamofascists and "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness"? An excellent question. Obama uninvited the mullahs only when poll figures began to plummet: over sixty percent of Americans disapprove of his Iran policies.

Talking of Neda's assassination Obama said that "yes, he's the President of the U.S. and at stake is national security of the United States". Iranian state radio repeated that (...) >>>

Diplomatic Neutrality is not an Option

(...) In debates with opponents Ahmadinejad maintained that his foreign policies are very successful. He needed to do that because his rivals identified him as a dangerous adventurer. Ahmadinejad countered by pointing out that because of his policies, the Americans no longer pushed for regime change. And the Europeans would be willing to strengthen ties with Iran as evidenced by the fact that Europe is Iran's largest trading partner. In other words, foreign policy is the central theme in the discourse.

The regime is pointing the finger at the West for stoking social unrest. A ludicrous accusation: it is rather disingenuous to tell Iranian mothers that their children are acting on the behest of the CIA, Mosad, AIVD and MI5. (...) >>>

Severe Diplomatis Ties With Iran Now!

(...) The sons of Allah yesterday relentlessly struck at the demonstrators. Are they desperate now? No, they aren't yet broken. But nobody knows how long they'll last.

Mousavi also shortly took part in the rally. No matter how I feel about his past, I have to admit he's a brave man and hasn't abandoned the people. The last few days he was offered money and political and economic positions. He and his family were also threatened. But he's still standing, will not break, nobody doubts him.

The highest religious and political leader on Friday gave an extraordinary ... no, a historical speech. For the first time in the history of Persia a leader of state directly threatened his own people with death and destruction. Usually they leave such unpleasantry to their strawmen. (...) >>>

A Prague Spring for Tehran?

(...) "We owe allegiance not to Gaza (Hamas) nor to Lebanon (Hezbollah), only to Iran", Iranians were shouting the last few days. After thirty years of Islamism, Islamic terrorism no longer has the support of the people.

The expenditure in support of terrorist groups is a secret of state. According to the opposition it involves billions of dollars. This money belongs to the Iranian people. Many live under the poverty line.

Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah said in a live television interview that 40 million Iranians voted for Khamenei and therefore for the theocratic system. He also said that "our friends are quarelling over the result, but with Khamenei's wisdom all will be settled in due course.

Does the terror chief of Lebanon know more than we do? He's afraid he will lose the support of Iran. (....) >>>

The Tehran Putch

I want to inform you about what has happened in Tehran over the last couple of days. I got my information from open sources and discussions I had with the people of Tehran. (...)

Last Friday at 10 PM the polls were closing. Just after midnight press agencies IRNA (Islamic Republic News Agency) and Fars (a mouthpiece of the Revolutionary Guard and the Iranian Hezbollah) issued a report that Ahmadinejad has been re-elected President. Around 3 AM some 15 million votes for Ahmadinejad had been counted. A physical impossibility.

Saturday afternoon around 4 PM radio and televion broadcast a message from the leader Khamenei. Even before the electoral committee issued the result, Khamenei congratulated Ahmadinjad on the occasion of his victory. It's apparent that this isn't the actual result of the elections.

The European Union (EU) would do well to protest against the situation. Mousavi spoke of election engineering with good reason. (...) >>>
