I Pray For The People Of Iran, That They May NOT Be Slaughtered



4:16 PM ET -- "Maybe I will be one of the people who is going to get killed."
A blog post in Persian, translated by the NIAC.


"I will participate in the demonstrations tomorrow. Maybe they will turn violent. Maybe I will be one of the people who is going to get killed. I'm listening to all my favorite music. I even want to dance to a few songs. I always wanted to have very narrow eyebrows. Yes, maybe I will go to the salon before I go tomorrow! There are a few great movie scenes that I also have to see. I should drop by the library, too. It's worth to read the poems of Forough and Shamloo again. All family pictures have to be reviewed, too. I have to call my friends as well to say goodbye. All I have are two bookshelves which I told my family who should receive them. I'm two units away from getting my bachelors degree but who cares about that. My mind is very chaotic. I wrote these random sentences for the next generation so they know we were not just emotional and under peer pressure. So they know that we did everything we could to create a better future for them. So they know that our ancestors surrendered to Arabs and Mongols but did not surrender to despotism. This note is dedicated to tomorrow's children..."

I've heard this over and over again from Native American Elders. "We do this for our children to the seventh generation. Our children and their children and their children's children will make our lives meaningful, as we have hopefully made our parents and our grandparents and their parent lives meaningful".
God Bless the people of Iran. Anyone who thinks Islam has no spiritual message needs to reread this email. "This note is dedicated to tomorrow's children." It's exactly what we should all be doing, acting on behalf of tomorrow's children. It doesn't matter if they are our children or not, because all of them are our children and we are responsible for the culture and planet we leave them. May Iran find a better future, one without blood shed, but if it should come to pass that old energy keeps it's power on the basis of bloodshed, may that sacrificed blood bear fruit. Allah-ho-Akbar.

  2. sorry, didn't finish...the stoning is the story of an Iranian woman whose husband wanted to divorce her and marry another woman. She refused to go along with the divorce so he made up the allegation that she committed adultery and had her stoned to death.

  3. My prayers are with the people of Iran to get the religious fanatics out of power who are destroying the planet and so many lives.

    Latest news report says that women at a university outside of Tehran are being beat up by the police. Women, fight them back - defend yourselves against them.
