I had a nightmare the other night

by MeyBokhor_Manbarbesuzan

I had a nightmare the other night. We had defeated the IRI and were chasing the clergy down the streets of Tehran. I managed to catch one and shoved him onto the ground. I reached out and pulled his beard off but it kind of came off all too easily. I looked closer and saw that his whole face had come off. It was a mask.

However, it wasn't the mask that shocked me but what was underneath. Millions and millions of small faces moving around in what used to be his face. I could hear them talking and when I laid my ear close to the "face" I heard them talking persian. They were all talking at the same time and were incomprehensible. I shouted, "shut up or talk with one voice?" There was a moment of silence and then an old cracky voice said,"the clergy mask you removed will not cure your problems. Any one of these small faces you see here can repalce the one you tore away. It is just a mask of convenience. The mask represents all of us here and does what we want. If it stole, it represented the majority. If it took bribes, it did it because it's what the small faces do when nobody is watching. If it killed, it's because these faces wanted it to kill."

I was horrified. I said desperately "Is there no way, no cure?"

"Are we Iranians doomed to tear mask after mask without getting anywhere?"

"Will we ever have a clean genuine face?", I said falling to the ground. The old voice said "havn't you been listenning? The mask can only be clean when the majority of faces under it are clean. But be aware, don't you go buying ready-made faces from Farang. That's where the whole problem started."

I was about asking him who he was when someone knocked me on the head and shrank me to a little figure and dropped me into the face. I screamed and woke up. The first thing I did was check my face in the mirror. I saw what I liked because I knew I was not wearing a mask.

Yeah sure

Everbody fabricates news, photoshops everything and flat out lies about the Iranian regime. IRI is in fact a progressive regime bent on the advancement of Iran and her place in the international arena. It respects the rights of other minorities, has a competent government not made-up of a bunch of uneducated religious fanatics, does not execute, murder and rape torture its own people.


@COP: I agree

by MeyBokhor_Manbarbesuzan on

I agree when you talk about an atmosphere of doubt, but is created when news are exaggerated, fabricated or manipulated. All creadibility is lost and sober reporting becomes instances of "cry wolf."

Creadibility also suffers when the opposition dances to the tunes of foreign media and their masters and interests.


Could someone translate this for me? To non-shrink language?

"The mask is hiding something that occurred possibly in your life and it has made you uncertain and afraid of the unknown. You are in denial and avoiding the truth which you are afraid to admit. You have been deeply emotionally wounded which hurts and the wound is still raw. Its impact is affecting your life today. . Try not to be afraid of being honest with yourself."

By the way Herre Vildmose, what is it in what I have written that bothers you so much? That we Iranians as a collective bear a responsibility for correcting the evil in our society?

Are you also one of those who lay claim to pasteaurized and pure Aryan DNA? Who is innocent by bloodline and has to endure the misery all other Iranians have inflicted on you.

"you put words in my mouth such as "endorse atrocities against your own people." Could you enlighten me as to where I have said or done that?"

Anyone who even creates an atmosphere of doubt about this blood thirsty regime is knowingly - or unknowingly - supporting atrocities against his/her people.

I want to have a rational dialogue with you all, but it is very hard to do so when you try to cast a shadow on the illegitimate nature of this regime.

Also, I am not ultra anything, aryan or otherwise and do not consider speaking out against the regime (mullahs, theocracy, etc.) a race issue - I've seen that thrown around by the IRI apologists here, but these entities are not a race.

Glad that's clarified....There, I was calm, wasn't I?





Nice try!

Rationalization at its best.

The mask is hiding something that occurred possibly in your  life and it has made you uncertain and afraid of the unknown. You are in denial and avoiding the truth which you are afraid to admit. You have been deeply emotionally wounded which hurts and the wound is still raw.  Its impact is affecting your life today. . Try not to be afraid of being honest with yourself.

I made so many cocktail molotovs that my arms were paralyzed!  That horror woke me up.  At least your nightmare was more intellectually substancial than mine.

hiih ...gate keeper of hell الموت لخامنئي الإمام. اغفر لنا



  ...We had defeated the IRI and were cha....

We?. Who is we?..let me make it clear to thee that folks like her/him & folks like me will never make it into "We" .

& as for the nightmare , I have a hunch he will definitly not be the one chasing ;).

However the real nightmare comes when ommaties die and come face to face with the Lord who is a Zorrostrian, a gate keeper of hell who is a Jew(zionist? :)) , St Peter as the guardian of heavens & thousands faces of ommaties who yell Al mout alimam khamenei..  aawwoooo...scarrrry..haha

Cheers, !!!
