Iran’s Theater Of The Absurd

Unlike, the Iranian government, I do not have a direct line to God or any of the Prophets of God, but one thing is certain, the great prohpets of humanity spoke for peace and love, not hate and violence. Allireza Malekian, speaking for the Iranian Ministry of Culture, issued a hate laden statement on the death anniversary of the Prophet Muhammad. “The heart of the world of Islam is hurt and full of anger. Media linked to world arrogance and the Zionist regime is direted by its masters and insults the Prophet Muhammad, and filmmakers trained by the CIA and the Mossad mock the beloved religion of Islam. The Zionist racists massacre Palestinian women and children with bombs and celebrate their victory in the White House.”

For some reason, the CIA and Mossad did not submit any pictures for Academy Awards this year, undoubtedly they were too busy training subversive filmmakers at secret hidewaways in the Catskills. The Iranian government has legitimate complaints about American behavior towards their nation, but every time they pour out these ridiculous hate spewn messages of violence, the world recoils in disgust.

They direct anger at oppressive regimes, but within Iran, the voices of thousands are silenced by an oppressive religion. The rights of Bahais are denied, and women placed on an unequal basis with men.

In all honesty, I know little about the Muslim religion, but, from what I have read and heard from those for whom the Muslim religion is a source of love and beauty, I doubt very much the Prophet Muhammad would ever speak in such hateful terms about the people of the Book or direct hate toward other humans.
