Letter from Dr. Ebrahim Yazdi's family to the United Nations

Your Excellency, Ban Ki-Moon
General Secretary of the United Nations

We are writing to appeal for your help to obtain the release of our father, Dr. Ebrahim Yazdi, from detention in the Islamic Republic of Iran.  Ebrahim Yazdi is the Secretary-General of the Freedom Movement of Iran.  He is at present the oldest of imprisoned dissidents in Iran.  He is 80 years old and in frail health.  The actions of the government and judiciary of Iran towards Ebrahim Yazdi are in contradiction of the constitution and laws of the Islamic Republic of Iran and in violation of Iran's international commitments to respect human rights.

Ebrahim Yazdi was arrested in the city of Isfahan on October 1, 2010.   He had gone there to attend a memorial service for the young daughter of a friend.  While participating in a prayer service in a private house, police violently disrupted the service and took a number of people into custody, including Dr. Yazdi.   The authorities later justified these arrests with the claim that this was an "illegal trip" because he had not informed the government of his travel and an "illegal prayer" because it occurred without prior permission from the government.  

Subsequent to his detention, Dr. Yazdi was transferred from Isfahan to Tehran to Section 209 of Evin prison.  Within a few days, the government announced that he would be held in "temporary custody" for... >>>

 let the S.O.B rot in the jails of the system he was so instrumental in creating. He and his like should expect no better than khamenei and Ahmadinezhad and their supporters after the regime is overthrown. Swift and decisive people's justice. Lined up against the wall and a single  bullet in the head, that is if people are kind and forgiving towards them. otherwise......

A Lesson For All Nokars

by ayatoilet1 on

For those who have sold Iran to foreigners (Mullahs and foreign agents like Yazdi) - here is a lesson pure and simple: Yazdi (who was recruited as an agent while being a student in Texas) came to Iran with Khomeini when the West decided to topple the Shah and presided over the destruction of Iran as one of Khomeini's right hand men.

Now years later his Western Masters have forgotten about him --- just like they did with the Shah.... For those who have sold out remember you too will be used like a piece of toilet paper to assist in some shit process the west needs done and then thrown out (flushed out); or an even better analogy is used like a condom to screw a nation and then thrown out.

The one big lesson for all nokars is their masters are unreliable and disloyal. The days of the Mullahs will come soon too - they have sold out Iran and Iranians and destroyed Iran for a taste of power (which will be very fleeting when they too are imprisoned, executed or in exile in some hell hole)...and their (especially British) masters will know nothing about them.

I wish I had kept a copy of the Time magazine picture of Yazdi with his feet on the table, arrogant as hell during an interview with a Time reporter... during the early days of the so called revolution. His wife and kids in Texas and there he was Iran's foreign minister...being 'told' what to say and do by his handlers in Virginia...and Iran's democracy got sold down the "pike" ... and he set the stage for the Mullahs eventual complete takeover.


now they realize he is innocent?

I dont think so.  Who could forget the Kangaroo trials he presided over, hand in hand with Sadegh Khallali.  All the murders, devastation this Yazdi character caused Iran is unforgivable.  If he does not perish in the purgatory of the Islamic Rapist Cultists' jail, he will certainly rot in a jail of a free Iran.  Either way he is guilty and must be brought to justice. I think Yousef and Sara should take a deep look at their father's life and ask him to repent while he in jail instead of wasting time on letter writing campaigns.

Let Him Go ...

Never Liked the SOB but no sick man should be held in prison. If he is guilty of anything it is not up to a criminal Regime Like that of the IRI to establish his would be sentence, even if he helped create it.
