Iranian People’s vote is the Overthrow of the Islamic Regime

The Islamic regime in Iran will be holding another round of its so-called presidential election this coming June 14th. Election, under a regime that holds onto power through use of force, oppression, and execution, is a farce. Nothing could be more ridiculous than calling the event of changing the president of such a state the “elections”.

Political parties are not legal in Iran. Freedom of conscience is meaningless; criticizing or protesting the state is met with imprisonment and torture. Women are not only deprived of their right to be elected, but are also continuously persecuted, oppressed and humiliated. No opposition organization or personality has the right to partake in any political activity. The candidacy of the majority of those who registered as candidate for the presidential elections, all of whom held post in the Islamic regime, including the former president, the former head of the parliament, the a former prime minister, and the existing vice-president, have been disapproved. These people have been amongst the high-ranked representatives of the Islamic regime and taken part in all of the regime’s crimes. This reveals the real meaning of any type of elections under the Islamic regime in Iran.

The approach of the Western governments and media such as the BBC and the VOA to this farce is disgusting. Their ultimate criticism toward this so-called election is the disapproval of Rafsanjani or some other minor issue. The people in Iran, however, witness the depth of their deprivation from any human rights. For the majority of the people in Iran the core of the problem is the regime itself. They are fed up with the sexual apartheid, with being deprived of their rights, with imprisonment, oppression, living under the poverty line and the continuous and systematic intervention of religion and religious institutions in their lives and private affairs. The people demand the overthrow of this regime. The people in Iran want a secular state; they want freedom, prosperity and a humane life.

The choice of the people in Iran is the overthrow of the Islamic regime and the totality of the Islamic rule. The people in Iran expressed this out loud in their marches in the year 2009 while chanting “Down with the Dictator” and “Down with the Islamic Republic”. We call on you to support the struggle of the people in Iran to get rid of the billionaire Islamist thieves and criminals and their fight to achieve freedom and prosperity.

    So, even the former people “in power” aren’t good enough to hold office again? Indeed it is weird and all too usual for the western media to pick some particular disapproval to criticize, although I find it demonstrates the sheer creepiness of the true powers when you have Khatami “advising” candidates to leave the “race”. Stranger still (to me – I hardly have a thorough understanding) is the conservative Adel abandoning his candidacy. I thought he was a Khameni-approved deal. So what the heck is Khameni looking for? The government hasn’t been a totalitarian enough instrument of his will?

    Of course, most all these men are of a kind, and it probably matters little which are “elected” in the current system. And yes, this is what the news should report: That the vast majority of people do not want any of them, and have no voice. (But then, news agencies are already quite used to our corrupted western former mostly-democratic systems, which even have various popular support for their un-democratic behaviors.)

    There are, in fact, some legal political parties — the only legal parties are those that do not oppose the ruling theocrats.

    On paper, it must be said, Iran’s elections are an improvement over the US’s. The US mainly uses first-past-the-post, a very deficient system. Iran uses runoffs for those elections without clear winners — the top candidates go head to head. That’s an improvement over FPTP, but not as much as proportional representation is.

    Even the tour execs are using them to help them acquire big tournaments. Most long irons pictures possess a lower piercing trajectory. These hybrids possess a lower centre of gravity that assists to start the ball up in to the air. As a result of their great length manage and precision, these hybrids will construct your self-confidence. Hitting this club kind the fairways may have you heading for a lot more par 5’s in two and leaving you quick putts for eagle.
