1 vs 77

I am walking aimlessly on the shop floor of our shop, and a thought passses through my head.  "why is it that we Iranians went absolutely bananas over the death of an unknown person but with a title, and yet just barely cared for seventy seven people in a plane crash"?

It is awful.  Look at the number of hits, on all the reports and stories surrounding the death of HIH Prince Ali-Reza Pahalvi.  Now take a look at the number of hits and stories over seventy seven Iranians that died in a plane crash.

Is there any significance in all this? What is it that moves people to be so much more emotional over one incident versus the other?  Why is it that we do not show at least ten times more euphoria over the plane crash?

If you are a human being you should be more worried over the plane crash.

If you are a Communist or an Islamic Fascist, you you would not give a second thought to the Prince's death.  But the evidence is to the contrary.  Look at the responses in their web sites.  Most would not dare criticize their regime.

Look at the emotional response of the nationalists or Royalists. Needless to say, they have responded to the death of the Prince, and have shown a lot of sorrow towards the plane crash, and have criticized the regime for its rediculous attitude that has caused the sanctions that lead to the plane crash.

So what are we to deduce?  Who has care or empathy?  Overall we Iranians are a sad lot.  Shame on all of us.

Ali, reaction to IranAir tragedy has been ridiculing IRI

by Anahid Hojjati on

Last night, I started gathering some information to do a blog on this. I have not done the blog and I may not do it but it gave me some more information regarding people's reaction. Reaction in Iran, has been to blame it on officials and ridicule them because of their incompetence. People are showing their anger by making cartoons about how situation is bad regarding flying in Iran.  From what I found, it seems that reason for some of the airplane crashes in Iran is wrong procedures. What you wrote:"The fault was with the Tehran Control Tower",  is in line with this.

AH: If you read the aviation report you will see that the plane had just been fully repaired. The fault was with the Tehran Control Tower.

But there is no excuse for the way we Iranians have reacted. I am sorry to read your reasoning.

It was the shock, unexpected nature of Alireza's death

by Anahid Hojjati on

In life, people are more influenced by an event that is a considerable change from previous state or from what they believe. Crash of an airliner in a country under sanction of plane parts and inept management of IRI just confirms what people believe, the sad state of Iran's affairs. The reason Alireza's death attracted much more attention was that it was more of a stretch. We were shocked by it. As sad as I was about crash of IranAir plane, was I shocked by it? By no means.

"Theran Tower KNEW that,but still released the flight;the pilot`s urge to fly BACK all the way to where he just came from,confirms that .."
