Diary of a Defiance: Iran un-Interrupted
Payvand / Hamid Dabashi
16-Jun-2009 (5 comments)

Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mohammad Khatami have led the demonstration and made speeches, as has Zahra Rahnavard, now an inspiration and role model for millions of Iranian women.  Please take a good look at her and keep a print of her picture and the picture of other women participating in these demonstrations in your files before some other charlatan comes and crops it for the cover of the next edition of Reading Lolita in Tehran, or else puts together a collage of it for yet another book on "Sexual Revolution" or "Sexual Politics" in Iran.  Whoever has won this particular presidential election, lipstick jihadis, career opportunist memoirists, obscene and fraudulent anthropologists on a summer "field work" in Iran, useless expatriate "opposition," and comprador intellectuals in general are among its main losers.

Dabashi is A JEALOUS OGHDEYI and NOTHING Else ...

Your Entitled to Your Opinion. I don't Share it.

Dabashi Speaks Crap as Usual ...

I have come to recognize these Pseudo Intellectuals since the early days of the Islamic Revolution who delivered our country to destruction and who continue to thrive by slandering others (like his Jealous rant against Azar Nafisi only because he himself is incapable of having the same international recongnition) instead of offering an original perspective or anything constructive to the debates that concern our country's predicament. All this because Dabashi himself is DEVOID of BOTH PERSONALITY AND TALENT.

TRULY AN "ANNE TELECTUAL" who thinks HE invented Orientalism even before Edward Said

Sue me if you wish, I will maintain my assessment to the end of my days ...

Et N'En Deplaise A Monsieur Hamid Dabashi:







Darius, not funny!

Dabbashi is a very intelligent and fair observer of middle east politics. I admire his straight talk and progressive vision.

For someone who defends and carries flag of the corrupted and defunct monarchy in Iran (yourself) these kind of mockeries is NOT acceptable!
