Once again, in late September,
the Islamic Regime’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is expected to attend the
United Nations’ General Assembly in New York., coming at a time when his regime
needs it most.
While Iran is currently
experiencing an unprecedented diplomatic isolation, the Iranian News Media reported
that the former Iranian deputy foreign minister M. Aminzadeh has revealed that
Ahmadinejad's last visits to India and Turkey were personally manipulated by
him. He had begged to be invited.
The political, economic and
social conditions have created a very unstable and explosive situation amplified
with factional feud and back biting inside the regime. The theocratic regime's
response to these conditions has been to silence the oppositions with large
scale repression, mass arrests and mass executions. A public display of the mass
hanging of 29 individuals in one day is only a glimpse of Tehran's terror.
To camouflage the regime’s
isolation and in view of the chaos and terror created by the regime,
Ahmadinejad will surely welcome a trip to New York, the symbol of democracy in the world, in order to hide the regime's
isolation, its internal weakness and its new record of brutality against its
With an elaborate PR
campaign, we should expect to see again Ahmadinejad lecturing the civilized
world on democracy, peace and human rights. His grand scheme and side show
will be to gather a potpourri of Iranian lobbyists and their American Cronies. It
will surely remind us of the fiascos launched by “The Council of Foreign
Relations” reception for Ahmadinejad in 2006 and his speech in Colombia
University on September 24, 2007 – not to mention the media frenzies to compete
for interviews with him
These unrealistic chaotic
situations are the result of the US and UN’s confused policies towards Iran which
have given the regime freer hands to brutalize its people as well as to jeopardize
the regional stability and international peace.
Ahmadinejad’s arrival in New
York coincides with Americans commemorating the victims of 9/11 terrorist
attacks. With all the atrocities committed by the Islamic regime in Iran, it is
no surprise that this regime is the unique super power of fundamentalism in the
We at the Progressive American Iranian Committee(PAIC), condemn all the crimes committed against the
Iranian people by the Islamic regime, and believe that the most incisive and
cost effective option for the dismantlement of the Islamic regime in Iran is to
cut off its economic life blood, in particular, revenues drawn from the oil,
and lend moral support to real democratic forces inside Iran who are doing
daily combat with the Islamic regime, instead of providing, as the U.N., a
platform for propaganda for this terrorist regime.
The mass killings of
political prisoners, stonings and hangings of the Iranian people, and also the
9/11 victims should be a wakeup call and a reminder to us all.
