Kudos to Shohreh Aghdashloo

Everyone knows breaking old habits so hard to do. However, there are those who are into imposing their own innate habits on others which when it comes to the sane world, it is no-go from the get-go.

Take for example the new documentary “Iranuim” narrated by the Emmy-award winner Iranian actress Shohreh Aghdashloo. The film, a series of interviews, is about concerns over IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic bent on “managing the world” getting its hand on nuke weapons to load up on its long-range missiles.

It would not be an exaggerationto to say there are many Iranians as well as non-Iranians who are very concerned about the Iranian men, women and children raping, maiming, stoning and murdering messianic Islamist Rapists succeeding at their attempt in acquiring nuke weapons.

Although IRR and its stormtroopers tried hard to force Canada to ban the public showing of the “Iranium”, going as far as sending threatening letters, to its credit the Canadian government stood firm and officially informed IRR, to take a hike.

Shohreh Aghdashloo rocks as usual. Special kudos to Canada’s Minister of Heritage as well as to the minister of Immigration for facing off the Islamist bullies.

kare ki kharabeh?

by MOOSIRvaPIAZ on

You say "You strongly promote all attacks on IR and not Iran" that is the funniest and the most absurd thing I've heard all day.

newsflash, IRI or IR or IRR does not live on planet mars. They reside in Iran, taking 70 million Iranians hostage! 

 

The first day you can realize that that you can related to most of us Iranian nationalists whose love for Iran and Iranians surpass ideology and political agenda.

The first day you can seperate IR from Iran and Iranians is the first day you can relate to most of us here.  

Have you ever wondered why we all call it IR and not IRI?!!   It is only the ISlamic Republic - not Iran.  Our friend Fred goes as far as calling it IRR - and that is Ok too - he is still waaaaaaaay ahead of you and yours.   I strongly promote all attacks of any form on IR not Iran - in fact I pray for the day I am part of that attack.

Not everyone such as Ms. Aghdashloo who has defended Baha'is in the past is a Baha'i. Is Mr. Dabashi who wrote this article is a Bahai'???Is Ms.Nafisi who gave this speech is a Baha'i??

It's not right & fair to say "She's either Bahaii or Muslim-turned-Christian so she has enough hate built up inside her about Iran's current situation. "

Iranian Baha'is & new Christians love Iran as much as other Iranians. I'm a Baha'i and I love Iran & care for her security & prosperity.

I hope to see a day when my beloved Iran shines out above the world’s horizon ... to see a day when other goverments marvel at the wisdom of our government & our political system ...to see a day when all Iranians enjoy freedom, decomrocy and liberty.

May the light of justice shines upon my beautiful Iran & sanctify it from tyranny & oppression.

Equal opportunity bigots

by Fred on

 Triple Haji:

“She's either Bahaii or Muslim-turned-Christian so she has enough hate built up inside her about Iran's current situation.”

Aside being uniformly uber-misogynists, rabid Islamists the world over are equal opportunity bigots as well.

She's either Bahaii or Muslim-turned-Christian so she has enough hate built up inside her about Iran's current situation.

Nothing justifies this blatant war-propaganda of the west to portray Iran as some maniac trying to acquire nuclear bombs and destroy the west!

I expect Fred Wolfovitz the Israeli to curse and spit about IRI, that's normal, but he can't fool all of us.

He's praying for the day that Israel or US drops 10,000 bombs on our country and our people. What a dirty shame.

Kudos to Canada too for siding with Iranian people!

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

 Thanks Canada For Showing the little islamist terrorist scum bags  that  you   dont give a toss about their threats, and you are with the Iranian people!

The islamist govenment first tried to prevent the screening of this film "through Diplomatic channels". Having failed on that, the threathening emails, phone calls and letters started arriving at the office of the organisation planning to show it. I cant wait to watch the movie, even if I have to travel to canada. can anybody recommend good chelo kebab places in Canada who also serve nice shiraz wine?

Cheers

She is just a self promoter

by B-Naam on

While the entire world was in awe, she took this opportunity to promote her film.  Shameful.  I watched this interview (posted by Shemirani) live and was disgusted.  Just because she is an accomplished actress, it does not mean as Iranians we have an obligation to support her just so we can tell our American friends we have an actress in Hollywood.  On the contrary, she has an obligation to be sensitive towards issues of her homeland and the Iranian-American community.  This interview was nothing more than a promotional piece at the time of a dire crisis in Iran!

Shohreh Aghdashloo

by J.S. on

I can not forget her clip about Neda as she talks about Eye-ran-ehan men.

¨Blah blah... these men want to control all women... blahhhhhhhh¨

She did not go into, ohhh dunno, not every man is a control freak.

As the other posters said ShAmE on her.

Fred, thanks for keeping racist, anti-religious remarks out of threads. It makes a better read.


Shemirani

ops !

Shemirani

not suprising !

by Shemirani on

I made my opinion on this person when i heard this interview in the very first days after "selection" 2009

 

She was one of the first having the opportunity to tell the world  iranians wills and hopes but she didn't ! She don't know if iranians wants democracy cause 32 years wasn't enough for her to understand facts :(

i realised she is just a "me me me" actress!! unfortunatly i shouldn't expect more of her ! even if after that she tryed to stand by other artists like a copy cat, it was too late ! le mal était fait !

 

 


KB

Hollywood is very "quid pro quo"

by KB on

My wife made me watch law and order last night (she tivoed
it) because Ms. Aghdashloo was in it, and I have to say watching her “perform”
was excruciatingly cringe making. The overacting, the accent and the awkward screen
presence... You will see much better actors on day time soap operas.

Why is it that we Iranians think just because something (or someone) is Iranian, its good. She is at best a third rate actor.

 I have actually seen
her in real life and she is charming and has a magnetic presence about her, but
she does need to take up elocution lessons and while at it, some acting lessons
too.

Now if you are cynical like me you’d think to yourself, “Hollywood”
is just calling in a favor by asking her to narrate on the documentary, having
given her so many parts she just does not deserve.

no massoudA

by MOOSIRvaPIAZ on

I can bring up your past where you called for using military option on Iran. anti-Iranians are those who cause further suffering on the ordinary Iranians. Nearly every "expert" featured in this film wants a war with Iran. And the funders behing them are anti-Iranian to the core. They care not for ordinary Iranians.

by masoudA on

My problem with you is: Whomever wants IR gone you call anti-Iranian who wants Iran bombed!!   Let me assure you - American Liberals are far more likely to drop the bomb on any nation in order to save American Soldier lives.   Get it?  Don't forget Truman was a liberal.   You keep talking about warmongers and how the wish to bomb Iran - yet Bush never even came close - why?   Do you think it was bacause of the IR military might?  No it was because of his concerns about the people of Iran who he correctly called: Hostages in the Hands of IR.   Remeber?

Shame on Aghadashloo

by MOOSIRvaPIAZ on

Yes neocon war advocate Fred, Shame on Aghadashloo, I expected more from her. Narrating a propaganda film that serves no purpose other than to bring west and Iran to military confrontation.

 

And to the geniune commenters here, I do recommend looking into the money behind this propaganda movie: http://iranian.com/main/blog/moosirvapiaz/anti-iran-neocons-generating-fake-controversy-promote-iranium-propaganda

Iranium features hardliners such as Bernard Lewis, ex-CIA director and bomb-Iran man, James Woolsey, Ambassador Mustache, great friend of Maryam Rajavi, Israel-should-nuke-Iran John Bolton, Islam-is-taking-over-America, Obama-is-a-muslim Frank Gaffney, Former Israeli Ambassador, UN, Amb. Dore Gold, crazy Iranian "expert", colleague of Doug Feith and protegé of Bernard Lewis and Richard Perle, Harold Rhodes. "Iranian Chalabi" and neocon Richard Perle protege, Abbas Fakhravar, liar and distorter-in-cheif Michael Ledeen. and many more.

What is the right thing masoudA

by MOOSIRvaPIAZ on

Lending your voice to those who want to bomb Iran is shameful. Aghadashloo WAS on Iranians side (and not pro-war anti-Iranians like you) but with this movie I have to reconsider my opinion of her.

Shame on Aghdashloo

by Fred on

What is amazing about Aghdashloo, aside her undeniable talent and the well-deserved recognition of her artistry; it is her enviable guts.

Unlike some who have made it big, Aghdashloo puts everything on the line in facing off the murderous Islamist Rapists.

It takes enormous courage, dedication and conviction to agree to act in “Stoning of Soraya M.”, narrate the “Iranium”, or all the other ways she has been doing in standing up to the anti-Iran Islamist Rapists and their stormtroopers.

“Shame on Aghdashloo”, what nonsense, no way shape or form.

While it is a good thing to let people back

by masoudA on

to our side - but I wish next time Shohreh Khanom gets the spotight, she develops the courage to say the RIGHT THING.   If she wants to know what saying the right thing is like - I suggest for her to listen to Arash Sobhani (kiosk) interview with Parazit.   It is the least she or any of us can do - when we get the chance.  

I too used to be a fan of her and Hooshang Tozie - especialy Tozie who has a creative mind, but when he joined the "Tapesh" gang with Amirghassemi and co., I realized he would no longer do or say anything that Bonyad Iman does not approve of.    

Dear Commrade - I am glad to see you decided to do the classy thing.

i was always a fan of shohreh and her husband, hooshang tozi'e.  they were very passionate about their art and humble in person.  i used to go their shows when they were not as famous and would go on the road all over u.s.  i didn't know about her activism.  good for her.  any idea if iranium will be shown in the u.s.?

They use every opportunity to create tension on this site. The funny thing is they try to act cool, as if it's not so obvious how frustrated and angry these good-for-nothing traitors are. As I said earlier, if they are willing to sell Iran and serve its enemies, they will gladly sell their wives and mothers.

by Anahid Hojjati on

It
is truly disappointing when a friend acts clueless and mean. Makes you
upset with yourself for ever being his/her friend and makes you want to
limit your contact with the person.People need to know that their
actions have consequences. They cannot go through life disregarding
others' feelings. As a friend, you might as well be the one teaching
them this lesson.

Shame on Aghadashloo

by MOOSIRvaPIAZ on

This movie is blatant propaganda funded by right wing Israeli settlers and their neocon allies in the hope to tighten the screws on average iranians with more sanctions and eventually war.

Not ONE real Iran expert in this movie. All have anti-Iran motive: 

Iranium features hardliners such as Bernard Lewis, ex-CIA director and bomb-Iran man, James Woolsey, Ambassador Mustache, great friend of Maryam Rajavi, Israel-should-nuke-Iran John Bolton, Islam-is-taking-over-America, Obama-is-a-muslim Frank Gaffney, Former Israeli Ambassador, UN, Amb. Dore Gold, crazy Iranian "expert", colleague of Doug Feith and protegé of Bernard Lewis and Richard Perle, Harold Rhodes. "Iranian Chalabi" and neocon Richard Perle protege, Abbas Fakhravar, liar and distorter-in-cheif Michael Ledeen. and many more
