Behrouz Souresrafil

TV commentator

This clip, critical of Shirin Ebadi, is from several years ago but a good example of his style and point of view:

Shirin Ebadi: "I Don't believe in an Islamic Declaration of HR"

Ebadi is islamist not IRANIAN.

by Maryam Hojjat on

I never like this women. She is very contrvercial.  On the day of receiving Nobel prize She introduced heself as a Moslem Woman not Iranian.  Shame on her!

The issue is not whether she vote or not. I thought about voting also. I did not for personal reasons. However Ebadi's problem goes far beyond voting. She is a supporter of IR. She openly advocates and Islamist regime. 

Payam: name calling the messenger won't do you any good. He is right. She should be ashamed. About hijab he is 100% right. We need another Reza Shah not an Ebadi or Mousavi. We got enough fake leaders.

Ebaid is fake

by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on


I am glad people are calling her for what she is. Ms. Ebadi by words and deeds proves that she is simply an extension of the IR. She is an Islamist as dangerous as any. In fact more so because she is "wolf in sheep" garb.

Just like Mousavi; Ebadi was propped up in order to mislead opposition. If we fall for this fraud we do get what we deserve. I smelled a Mollah the first time I heard this "Nobel" prize winner.


Payam is right

by zigourat on

Payam you are right H Chavez was elected in 1998 with 56% of the vote. Don't pay attention to people like Bot shekan who looks at world with black and white TV.


Neo con

by zigourat on

Every body has his neo con, USA has Robert Kaplan and Iran has Behrooz Souresrafil.

بت شکن

Wrong Payam!

by بت شکن on

Hugo Chavez was rocketed in to stardom by a coup d'etat attempt in 1992, failed as it did, but brought Chavez into public's attention. Who do you think is an idiot now?




She is right!

by choghok on

The true improvement come with gradual change. But since it has been a coup, and really ali geda and ahmaghi want to make violent changes people are forced to drastic change.



by Ferfereh on

No matter how he express himself, he describe very well Ayatoallah Shirin Ebadi


آقا جان، اینقدر داد نزن قّر میشی‌


Excellent point Ari, eventhough I was against participating in the sham election

Khob Rast ham Meegeh ;0)

I agree with him 100 %

payam s

What an idiot!

by payam s on

He is a total idiot. He gives examples of Bolivian and Venezuelan democratic revolutions, then discredits them. This bisharaf regurgitates FOX news word by word, except in persian. It was not the drug dealers who overthrew the Bolivian capitalist oligarchy, it was the impoverished indigenous majority exploited for 500 years by the same bastards. Chavez' rise to power was not a coup you moron, it was a democratic election in 1998. A FOX news/CIA/military coup by the elites overthrew chavez for literally 2 days before the people took to the streets and brought back their democratically elected president. This guy knows this, that is why he gave those examples, but since he is pro-capitalist/corporate power in iran he had to modify his initial message. And he is also a sexist pig.


You'd think he'd be toes up by now!

by Milan on

Good logic, even though he's about to blow out an O ring.

And a pinch of Asghar Taragheh. He tells the truth, though. Bilachak abroad and balachak at home? nah, there got to be a connection.  


Maa be fekre Iraneem... I still cannot comprehend the suffering

by WeAreBlessed on

I met Behrouz Souresrafil for the first time, at the lobby of the amphitheater, after the completion of the Alireza Pahlavi memorial service, on Sunday January 23, 2011 in Bethesda Maryland.  

He noticed that I was waiting to talk to him.  He seemed approachable.  I shook his hand and started with his signature end-line (at the end of his programs in AzadiTV) "Maa be fekre Iraneem, Maa hamme be fekre Iraneem..." (translation: We are thinking of Iran, We are all thinking of [the future of] Iran...)  He intentionally used this phrase, since it was the final portion of the speech given by the Late Shah, immediately before his departure from Tehran (perhaps on the departure date)...   

I told him that in Shiraz there is a wax statue of his grandfather, the famous Souresrafil journalist, killed during the period when constitutional monarchy was being established.  His grandfather's statue is located in the andaroonee (female quarters) basement of the famous Ghavaam residence, located near the center of Shiraz.  We talked for about 2 minutes.

I attended the Alireza Pahlavi memorial, to see Shahbanoo Farah...

At the end of the memorial I was moved: I still cannot comprehend the suffering that Iranians have experienced, since February of 1979...

I would greatly appreciate it, if someone could forward (cut, paste, and email) this message to Mr. Behrouz Souresrafil.  I cannot locate him.  To the best of knowledge, he is with Persian VOA.


With regret and empathy: Maa be fekre Iraneem. Maa hamme be fekre Iraneem...

goosham raft!

by Ari Siletz on

Cheghadr daad zad! Ebadi should pull khejalat because she said vote in the elections. Events proved her right, though. That vote may well go down in history as the begining of the end for repression in Iran. What brought people in the streets last year, last week, yesterday... wasn't sanctions, the CIA, Israel, or 1389 instead of 2569; its was internal politics, just like the Nobel lady said.

He is a mixture of:  Peter Sellers + Salvador Dali + 1/4 of spoon of Bani Sadre + a small trace of a former shazdeh heritage + a pinch of Carlo Ponti.  Add salt and pepper per taste.

And makes more sense than I'd care to admit :)
