Omega watch & Iran's elites


by Fred

While due to mismanagement of the national economy with historic oil revenue and the culture of thievery by the ruling Islamists, for years some Iranians have been reduced to selling their body organs to make ends meet, number of luxury good companies are raking in big profits from sales to the very people responsible for the dire situation in Iran. See here.

One of these amoral companies is the Swatch Group, the parent company of the Swiss watchmaker Omega with no less than 10 dealers in Tehran alone.

UANI has called on these companies, Swatch Group included, to exit the market in Iran:

The reasons for our concern regarding Omega’s business activities in Iran are manifold. First, the Iranian regime relies on access to luxury goods to co-opt Iranian elites, and, in turn, maintain power.”

Those luxury good companies providing perks for the Messianic Islamists’ apparatchiks and coconspirators in their crimes against Iranian nation should know for their short-term gains, there is a long term price in sullied reputation.

UANI letter to Omega, here.

کافری به کاخ امام نقی در سامرا وارد شد و گفت: «یا نقی، چگونه است که ادعای زهد می کنی اما در کاخ های آنچنانی زندگی می کنی؟!»
امام نقی پاسخ داد: «به خدا قسم که زاهد واقعی در این دنیا خود من هستم، این دنیا در مقابل دنیای آخرت بسیار بی ارزش است، می بینی که من با زهد فراوان، خواهش های نفسانی خودم را زیر پا گذاشته ام و به دنیای آخرت و لذت های بهشتی، پشت کرده و به اموال همین دنیا قناعت کرده ام...!!»

Granted that the rapist regime in Iran will go anything to remain in power and the outside firms will do anything for profit, but we cannot sit back and do nothing.  Doing something albeit futile, is better than doing nothing.

It will probably increase the sales for Rolex......kidding aside whoever wants, whatever in Iran can get it, anytime! Why waste time with efforts that have no meaning, merit or substance?
