This is the second time that a concert by the Tehran Symphony Orchestra, which is currently touring Europe, has met with green protesters. Here in Rome, the conductor lifts the bouquet of flowers left by a green p[rotester:

he is part of the iri propaganda campaign as are couple of dozen commenters representing all shades of devil's advocates to the genuine uprising in iran.  one has to be insane to be doing this for free.


Re: Sargord Pirouz

by AMIR1973 on

Sargord Pirouz is an Internet troll who leaves comments on a number of blogs that cover Iranian events. On the NIAC blog and a number of other websites, he goes simply by "Pirouz" and claims to be a half-Iranian, half-American resident of the San Francisco Bay area who took part in the "anti-establishment" movement in the U.S. in the 1960s and early 1970s. On the other hand, the "Sargord Pirouz" who appears on claims, I believe, to be a member of some branch or other of the IRI's military. However, they both take very, very, very similar propaganda lines, i.e. that the demonstrators are being beaten and arrested (and in some cases killed) as part of a "law enforcement" operation--no more, no less. They both use the phrase "pro-establishment" to refer to the armed enforcers of the regime. They are both very tedious in correcting real or alleged errors regarding which of the regime's enforcers are Basijis vs Pasdaran vs "police" (and are keen to refer to the IRI's street thugs as IRIPF). What alerted me to the fact that these two individuals are one and the same (despite their affecting different cyber personas) is when both objected on different websites to Neda Aghasoltan being Time's Person of the Year on the grounds that Allison B Krause (one of the 4 students killed at Kent State in 1970) was never declared Time's Person of the Year either. I will leave it to readers as to who the real Pirouz or Sargord Pirouz is: just a freelance Internet troll or part of a more organized IRI propaganda campaign.

 your place is in heal ,


I find this so sad

by xalephbet on

as always iranians outside iran are so disconnected and clueless. the tehran symphony orchestra is not a representative of the iranian governement. Iranian musicians have to work under such difficult conditions and regulations and that's how they are treated by their fellow iranians outside iran.....shame on these protesters.

IRI sends Tehran Symphony Orchestra to perforce "Peace Symphony" in Europe and executes political prisoners at the same time. It is so ironic and hypocritical! All the concerts are free! It looks like a PR campaign launched by the IRI to neutralize the negative publicity surrounding the executions of protesters. Islamic Republic has advertised the events in top European newspapers as "music for Peace"


I am glad that the conductor raised the flowers presented by the green protester! I wonder if Sargord would do the same if he was the conductor...


Sargord Pirouz


pro establishment are just that, pro establishment. They have all the oil money behind them, they control the airwaves, the prisons, pretty much everything but people's right to think for themselves.


the difference between us and people like you is that if we had all this behind us, we would have let you speak your mind without torturing you, killing you, raping you...

YOU, sir, YOU, you're the "anti-Iran" on this site, not the people who protest against your beloved dictatorship. We love Iran, but we hate your bloodthirsty anti-Iranian regime and we hate what your anti-Iranian regime has done to our beloved Iran for over 30 years. We want to stop the IRI crimes against Iran and Iranians, and YOU, you despicable man, YOU want those sadistic crimes against Iran and Iranians to continue unabated.

Do you get the difference.

LOL-- so true everytime Sargord is in a corner about the I.R.I. he sidesteps and points his finger to Mexico, or to Russia, or to Israel but never answers the subject at hand. SARGORD IT'S ABOUT IRAN AND IRANIANS NOT ABOUT PACO IN MEXICO or BORIS IN RUSSIA.- IT'S ABOUT US ~! 


A referendum is the last thing

by Fair on

a fascist would accept. If the fascist were confident of winning, they would have it in a second and brag about it forever.

Instead, they resort to beating raping torturing imprisoning en masse young Iranians. That is right- they oppress Iranians. Which makes them ANTI IRAN more than anybody.

And you didn't answer the question asked you earlier- what do you have to say for the execution of Mohammad Reza and Arash? Is that also "law enforcement"? Or a Zionist plot? Which pathetic way of weaseling out are you going to choose this time fascist major? Or is it too uncomfortable to address this particular action of your pathetic "establishment"?

none of us are ANTI-IRAN. not one person here is ANTI-IRAN. so let's stop with this b.s. line of anti-iran cheerleading. if u want to make a pun make an accurate pun.  however, we all are ANTI-I.R.I. we are all ANTI-DICTATORSHIP.  you in your warped wilayat faqhi brainwashed mind think this is the legitimate government of iranians in 2010.  IT IS NOT. care to have a referendum ???

Sargord, when pro-establishment young men beat, stab, kill, and rape protesters THAT's thuggery.

When peaceful people carrying green banners and flowers shout slogans and sing songs against dictatorship, THAT's called non-violent protest.

Sargord Pirouz


by Sargord Pirouz on

When pro-establishment young men break up political speeches of Khatami or other reformers inside Iran, they are called thugs.

But when anti-Iran young people break up apolitical, art venues performed by Iranians from Iran, they are somehow commended for it here at IC?

Well, there does seem to be a lot of hypocrisy to go around for everyone- wouldn't you agree?

Oh, there I go again- cutting in on all the anti-Iran cheerleading!
