Anonymous Forum for Iranians

Warning: Graphic Images

Photos of Iranian Victims of Government Oppression

Visit and encourage the Iranian people to continue fighting for their freedom? Wonder why freedom is so important? Well, if you haven’t read enough history books to educate you as to what happens without it, then I suggest watching “The Patriot” and “Braveheart” for a crash course.

Why We Protest

No one is going to help the Iranians. In fact, there is strong reason to believe the eleven million strong Revolutionary Guard is receiving supplemental assistance from Lebanon, as there is a reluctance on the part of Iranians to kill other Iranians. But we can give them spiritual and emotional support by posting at the site above, and by tweeting.

A couple of good links for tweeting:

Change for Iran

Stop Ahmadi

They appreciate our support in defense of their freedoms. In the days, months, and years to come, we may need them to return the favor.

Holocaust Revisionists and Deniers

Posted by Glezele Vayne on June 16, 2009

I had a visit from a Holocaust denier recently at my humble little blog. He posted a comment along with a link The Holocaust for Dummies.

I checked it out. One of the factoids presented was on the question of the authenticity of Anne Frank’s diary. Supposedly, it couldn’t be real, because the diary was written with a ball point pen, which was not invented in time for little Anne to use it to write up her experiences of being hidden in an attic in Amersterdam with her family for much of the war. A neighbor ratted them out and Anne was then sent to Westerbork transit camp, then to Auschwitz death camp, and ultimately she was murdered in the much more horrible (if you can imagine) death camp of Bergen-Belsen, shortly before liberation. Only her father Otto survived, found the diary in the attic and had it published.

Back to my Holocaust revisionist/denier visitor — I did some checking on one of the “factoids” which this person apparently believes, from the above cited link. Indeed, the ball point pen was not invented until 1945.

Score one for the Holocaust Revisionist/Denier.

The reason why a soul must be dismissive of the suffering of millions of Jews, Gypsies, Catholics and other innocents is the subject of another post. Or maybe I’ll leave it up to someone else who cares to wade through that dark world.

Anne Frank used a fountain pen. The first practical pen was patented in 1884.

About.com on Anne Frank and her diary

The Fountain Pen Network

at “The Fountain Pen Network” I found the following thread —

Anne Frank’s Pen – What Might it Have Been?

A Brief History of Writing Instruments

As Father Patrick Dubois, a Catholic priest who researches the Einstatzgruppen portion of the Holocaust says, there are no Holocaust deniers/revisionists in Eastern Europe. They know it happened.

Holocaust deniers/ revisionists are fond of wondering aloud, “Why are honest questions regarding the truth of the Holocaust always met with charges of antisemitism?” One response: Uncovering Certain Mischievous Questions About the Holocaust by Berel Lang. There many excellent articles on the topic of Holocaust denial/revisionism at the US Holocaust Memoria Museum website.

In response to my Holocaust revisionist/history buff type visitor, your credibility has just been shot down. On to better things for me.

Caroline Glick on Netanyahu’s Speech

Posted by Glezele Vayne on June 16, 2009

BS”D

“Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s speech Sunday evening at Bar-Ilan University had one goal: To get US President Barack Obama off of Israel’s back.

Netanyahu’s speech was an eloquent, rational and at times impassioned defense of Israel. For Israeli ears, after years of former prime minister Ehud Olmert’s and former foreign minister Tzipi Livni’s continuous assaults on Israeli rights, and their strident defenses of capitulation to the Palestinians and the Syrians, Netanyahu’s address was a breath of fresh air. But it is hard to see how it could have possibly had any lasting impact on Obama or his advisers.”

Someday

Posted by DJM on June 15, 2009

Born in Tehran during the turmoil of the Iranian Revolution in 1979, Nazanin Afshin-Jam’s family was forced to leave all their worldly possessions behind and flee to freedom, when her father had been jailed and tortured by the Revolutionary Guard under the new regime. Awaiting execution, it was the family’s escape to Europe that saved them from political persecution. Faced with adversity so early in life, the revolution impacted her core.

Throughout Nazanin’s life, she has found solace in the music that surrounds her. Her mother inundated their family with music flowing constantly in the house from her incredibly eclectic music collection. Her constant world travels and cultural awareness have molded her musical acuity to span a spectrum broader then most are ever exposed to. Blessed with the voice of angels, Nazanin whisks audiences away on a musical journey around the world with her debut album,”Someday”.

In Canada Neo-Nazis & Islamists March Together Against Israel

Posted by avideditor on June 14, 2009

Update here is a video of the event.

This is just sick. The jihadis are the modern day Nazis IMHO. From Founding Bloggers.

The Neo-Nazis and Islamists marched together against Israel in Calgary this past weekend.

The neo-Nazi Aryan Guard are the people holding the defaced Israeli flag. Apparently, their hatred of Israel and Jews seemed to temporarily supersede their hatred of other groups, who they marched with in Calgary this past weekend. (Flickr via Kate)

The Aryan Guard joined Islamists and Communists at the anti-Israel rally in Calgary this weekend.
The National Post reported:

Critics of Israel are often quick to insist that they’re not anti-Semitic—just anti-Zionist, anti-“occupation,” or something along those lines. But not these guys: at a protest against Israel in downtown Calgary on the weekend, the Nazi group, the Aryan Guard, showed up to march alongside the Muslims. Of course, the Aryan Guard is honest enough to admit they just plain hate Jews, not bothering to strain themselves with arguments of nuance. They fit right in on Saturday with their posters of Israeli flags defaced with the accusation “Terror State.” As Darcey at Dust My Broom notes, the 150 “anti-racists” who came out in force to protest an Aryan Guard march in downtown Calgary last year didn’t complain this time. In fact, they marched right along with the Aryans, united under the swastika: the Arabs and Communists labeling the Jewish State a “Nazi” regime; the skinheads hoping to resurrect the Real McCoy.

Event organizer Shadi Abuid—who last made news a few years back as a university student when he brought to Calgary Norman Finkelstein, the popular anti-Israel author of “The Holocaust Industry”—told Canwest Global he was impressed with the “various groups uniting under one voice.”

I think Netanyahu just sold out Israel. Did Netanyahu just sell out Israel?

Posted by avideditor on June 14, 2009

I am sorry but any call for a “pali” state in Israel is a sell out. The jihadis can do there best to rewrite history but they are not going to fool me. Jordan was created for the muslim. Israel for the jews. I hope his speach point that out but it did not.

Israel is still playing the price for giving up the Gaza Strip. Giving the muslims any more of Israel is a mistake. IMHO

Certain bloggers I used to look up to disagree with me. I draw a line in the sand on this Issue. Israel should never trade any land for peace IMHO. Read other views at Atlas or Holiger Awakens I hope they change their minds soon before they mislead other with their poisonous interpretation.

You can read the transcript below.

There are people that I used to respect making the assertion that his speaech was

Honored guests, citizens of Israel.
Peace has always been our people’s most ardent desire. Our prophets gave the world the vision of peace, we greet one another with wishes of peace, and our prayers conclude with the word peace.

We are gathered this evening in an institution named for two pioneers of peace, Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat, and we share in their vision.

Who we own the debt for Obama’s Nationalizing plans

Posted by avideditor on June 13, 2009

From Zin Owls Webpage

ObamaNation: Biggest Holders of ObamaNation Debt (13Jun09)

As the ObamaNation spends an unprecedented amount of money, there is an equally great need to raise the cash to pay for it. This is accomplished through borrowing, whereby ObamaNation sells Treasury securities of varying maturity.

For investors, the government bills, notes and bonds were considered a safe financial product because they had a guaranteed rate of return, based on faith in future US tax revenues.

The government had been partially funding operations via Treasury securities for decades.

This borrowing adds to the national debt, which is now above $11 trillion and is rising every day.

Much of that debt is held by the private sector, but about 40 percent is held by public entities, including parts of the government.

The Halimi Cover-Up

Posted by Glezele Vayne on June 12, 2009

by Pamela Geller/Atlas Shrugs

Ilan Halimi

Ilan Halimi

Death in an Islamic “homemade concentration camp”.

Warning!

The following contains descriptions of extreme brutality.

The abduction and murder in Paris of a young Jewish man by a gang of Muslim immigrants calling themselves the Barbarians shocked the whole of France in 2006. But now that the accused are on trial – silence.
A French judge has ordered the latest issue of the magazine Choc (“shock”) removed from the shelves. The cover showed a man with duct tape completely covering his head, except for a small opening around his nostrils. His nose is bloody. His hands are also bound with duct tape.

It was a photo of Ilan Halimi, the 23-year-old Parisian Jew who was kidnapped and tortured for 24 days by the Barbarians. His captors took the picture and sent it to his family. A lawyer for Halimi’s family had complained about the magazine, but Choc’s editor-in-chief Paul Payan responded: “Of course, we understand the anguish of the parents and, of course, we share their anguish…. But what’s so harrowing is not the publication of this photo. What’s harrowing is what it represents, what happened, the reality behind it.”

And it gets worse. The New York Times reported last week that “in the two and a half weeks since 27 people went on trial [in Paris] for the brutal 2006 kidnapping, torture and killing of a young Jewish man, little has filtered out about the proceedings.” Worse still, the little that has emerged indicates that French government and law enforcement have done everything in their power to obscure the Islamic Jew-hatred that led these Muslims to commit this crime.

The corrupt media, aligned with the jihad forces, has long blacked out the truth about Halimi’s homemade concentration camp and the inconceivable horrors that were suffered by this French Jew, chosen by Islam’s soldiers for unimaginable torture. They covered up the religious aspects of this depraved barbarity. Law enforcement did as well.

No one said anything about the Koran’s statement that the Jews are the Muslims’ worst enemies. No one referenced Muhammad’s words: “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say, ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.'” Never was there heard anything about the Islamic tradition that says:

Freedom For Me, But Not For Thee

Posted by DJM on June 11, 2009

Remember the Muhammad cartoon riots a few years back? Freedom was roundly condemned by Muslims throughout the United Kingdom and around the world.

Islam thrives on hypocrisy. The Sharia law, for example, gives different punishments to Muslims than it does for non-Muslims. And as far as Muslim, Islam gives fewer rights to Muslim women than it does for Muslim men.

So, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that this is the Islamic view of Kafir freedom:

freedom_go_to_hell

However, when it comes to Muslims…

Uighurs2

This is Islam. It denies basic human rights to a majority of mankind – non-Muslims and women – while giving male followers the most freedom and rights.

But then, hypocrisy pretty much defines the intolerant, bigoted cult of Islam.

Wanted Hamas terrorists sheltered by 500 women in N. West Bank

Posted by Glezele Vayne on June 10, 2009

BS”D

DEBKAfile‘s Palestinian sources report that 500 Palestinian women in Nablus are providing wanted Palestinians with sanctuary and permitting their bank accounts to be used to whitewash Hamas revenues.

One of the Hamas operatives detained this week was found in possession of one-and-half million euros for establishing a stronghold in northern Samaria to support the terror campaign Hamas has declared on the Palestinian Authority and Israel. This West Bank region was evacuated by Israel in 2005 together with its pullback from the Gaza Strip. Three Hamas female suicide killers were captured this week in Qalqilya on a mission to murder six senior Palestinian Authority officers.

Northeast Intelligence Network had a link to an extremely graphic video that actually made me wretch. I only watched a couple of minute of it.

In the video above, we see people restrained, and then their hands are hacked off, oh so slowly and painfully, looks like with not particularly sharp knives. The video I watched at NIN had people wrapped up in some sort of large cloth, and then they did the exact same thing, with their heads! Slow…agonizing, with the body of the poor victim, even while being restrained, struggling spastically, obviously in horrid pain, wanting to hang on to dear life. And it showed the underside of the cuts, and all the blood. I think maybe Charles Manson would be horrified.

I believe Pamela Geller, that this video, horrifying though it be, is tame compared to most of what is out there.
