On Sunday September 27th 2009, I had the opportunity to meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama at the Vancouver Peace Summit put on by the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education. I spoke to him about the plight of the Iranian people suffering grave human rights abuses under the stranglehold of the current regime and the urgency for the international community to take action, especially in light of the violence, deaths, detainments, disappearances and systematic rape since the fraudulent presidential elections in June.

I asked His Holiness if he would stand in solidarity with the Iranian people by holding a sign that says “Freedom for Iran” and “Human Rights for Iran”.  When the Dalai Lama agreed without hesitation, I hugged and thanked him. I was so elated because I knew what an important symbol it would be for the people inside Iran. I want the Iranian people to know that they have not been forgotten and that the international community stands beside them.

The Dalai Lama had said over a decade ago when he received the Nobel Peace Prize:

“Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free”.

May Iranians live in peace at last!

American Dream

None of this was broadcast on western media

by American Dream on

In the United States none of this Nazanine Jam stuff was broadcast in the news media in the United States.

U.S. President Obama is holding direct talks with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

China and Russia support the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The United Nations has invited Iranian President Ahmadinejad to speak at the United Nations.

The protests are gone in Iran as a mass movement and everything has returned to another day in the Islamic Republic.

And the christian science monitor has stated the majority of Iranians support Iranian President Ahmadinejad.
