Long Live Hassan Nasrollah!

A couple of days ago, I took an elderly relative to a European country’s consulate here in the U.S. so that she can get herself a visa to travel there and visit her son.  The son has had many health and family issues within the past few years and she was is rather anxious to see him.  So, we got all the documents together, got the travel health insurance, made an appointment and showed up at the consulate. 

When we got to the initial “registration” window, we were greeted by a friendly lady (or at least “friendly” until she saw the great emblem of the “Islamic Republic of Iran” on my relative’s passport) who directed us to the main waiting room, where she could still keep an eye on us through the adjacent window.  The room was filled with many nationalities, Pakistanis, Indians, Chinese and couple of Eastern Europeans.  People were directed to the visa window one by one.   Having gotten there late, we were one of the last people to get to speak to the visa officer.  This gave us an opportunity to observe everyone else, and notice that they each spent about 5 minutes at the window, where their paperwork was given a cursory review and they were told to return in two days to pick up their visas.

But then came our turn.  The minute we got to the window, a person (who I assumed was discretely dispatched by the “kind” registration lady) showed up to join the visa officer at the window.  They both then started to pepper my elderly relative with a million questions and put a bunch of other paperwork in front of her to sign, including one that asked whether or not she had received military training in Iraq or Afghanistan.  They the gave us a list of a million other things to bring them and sent us back on our merry way.

So, on the long drive home, while my relative was sitting next to me in the car, depressed about the possibility of not being able to visit her son, I couldn’t help by remember that this was the same country in Europe that I visited as a child  (before the 1979 devolution) with an Iranian passport.  Back then we didn’t even need a visa to travel there, and were treated with outmost respect.  But then I snapped out of such dreadful and unholy thoughts.  I said to myself: are you nuts Anonymous Observer?  Aren’t you an avid reader of Iranian.com?  Haven’t you learnt anything about the glorious accomplishments off the IR in the past 31 years?  Haven’t you read Niloufar Parsi, Q, Ardeshir Ommani and other contributors’ blogs and articles who REALLY know what’s going on?  Better yet, haven’t you heard about what the IR has done for Lebanon and the glorious accomplishments of the Lebanese Hezbollah?   Didn’t you hear how they “defeated” the “Zionists” in 2006 (notwithstanding Nasrollah’s goh khordam of course)?  Can’t you understand how good that is for the Iranian people?  Didn’t you read all the pieces by the aforementioned Western passport holding Marxists, West haters and paranoid conspiracy theorists?  Didn’t the American passport holding Soraya Sepahpour Ulrich say when she was attending Ahmadinejad’s chelo kabaob party that “President Ahmadinejad” has elevated Iran’s name so much that she now feels emboldened to “defend Iran” as well? So, what’s your problem?

At that moment I realized that the voices in my head were correct.  It IS all worth it.  The humiliation, the lack of respect in the world, the way we are all viewed as terrorists (which, of course, has absolutely NOTHING to do with the IRI and is all a Western and Zionist conspiracy), the way we have become the “bacteria” of the world…it’s all worth it.  These are all sacrifices that the Iranian people have to make so that Hassan Nasrollah and Hezbollah can become a “powerful force” in Lebanon and defeat the evil West, Israel, Zionists, imperialists, the evil residents of planet Alpha-Omega 1651, etc.

So, good job Mr. Nasrollah.  Keep up the good work.  The Iranian people are with you…really, they are with you in a sense that they are viewed in the same light as members of your organization, which is listed as a terrorist organization around the world.  We are all in this together…and consequences be damned.  

And to you, you ungrateful Iranian people: quit your whining and celebrate Hezbollah and Hamas’ victories.   That is all that matter, or should matter, in your miserable lives.  This is a struggle that you should take on…not the Western passport holding bloggers on Iranian.com or CASMII, but you, the average Hossein and Hassan in Iran.  It’s your purpose and place in this world…to be the useful tools of said bloggers.  Listen to them, and the Lebanese Hezbollah (not you, of course) will achieve greatness…and in the meantime, lower your expectations.  Why do you want to go to the “West” anyway?  It’s so…decadent and on decline.  Trust us.  We live here.  We will tell you all about it when we come to Iran on our next visit (it may be a wile, because we visit only once every two years).  In the meantime, try visiting South Lebanon.  It’s nice.  I heard there’s a new fifty million dollar park down there that you paid for.  You should visit it sometime.  Plus, Hezbollah can sure use your tourist dollars.  Long live Nasrollah!!!!!

Roozbeh Jaan - I just remembered

by Anonymous Observer on

that I read somewhere that during the 2006 war, when Southern Lebanon was being reduced to rubble--as Hezbollah's "victory"was taking place-- the fat boy had s@@t his pants and was hiding in IR's embassy in Beirut.  If you think about it, in a sense, he's really not that different from his admirers on this site.  He, just like them, was hiding outside of the ring and was saying to his population: "lengesh kon."   


So degrading

by Rea on

And no matter what I think of the IRI, I find the visa officials' behaviour appalling. 

In 1993 I applied for a Canadian visa and lived a similar humiliating experience. Worse, after all the paper work and the interview, they turned me down. Even today I remember the humiliation and still hold a grudge against Canada. Seriously. ;o)

Actually...thanks Mark

by Anonymous Observer on

seriously.  Thanks for the apology.  And no, comments don't hurt my feelings.  Like you pointed out, I wrote the blog, so I'm not offended by the comments at all.  I'm just having a bit of fun.  And it's not venting off family affairs.  It's a commentary on the sad situation that our people are in.  But how can you understand?  You're not an Iranian.  

All of that being said, get off my blog.  You're annoying and you don't contribute anything to the discussion.

Sorry AO, I didn't mean to

by Sargord Pirouz on

Sorry AO, I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. This appears to be a sensitive family matter. Why you chose IC to vent personal feelings is a bit unmanly, but I'll let this go.

You're right, it isn't any of my business. It's really nobody's business but your family's.

I'll butt out.

Comrade - not a grandma

by Anonymous Observer on

but a relative. :-)

Like I said in the blog, this happened a couple of days ago, and I had to accompany here there for various reasons (doesn't speak English, doesn't drive, etc...).

You are free to think of it whatever you want.

No Mark, it wasn't France

by Anonymous Observer on

Still, none of your business.

And, are you drunk? Did you read the blog?  The relative's son lives in that country and is going through some rough family issues (a nasty divorce) and serious health problems.  She has to visit him there.  Unfortunately ("duh"), they can't travel to Azarbaijan to meet!!!  Really, Mark, of all the dumb things that you spew on this site, this one has to be THE dumbest.

She was there when SAVAK raided the safe house, and is here in the sanctuary's lineup.

Ah, so it was France. I

by Sargord Pirouz on

Ah, so it was France. I thought so.

Back in '79 or '80, I think, my Iranian dad had a hard time getting into France. They weren't going to let him in (all he was looking to gain was a connecting flight). But my American mom was with him. Only because of her did they allow him to stay for 24 hrs to take the connecting flight between Iran and the United States. 

And AO, there wasn't no Nasrallah-type issue back then. There was a problem between MEK terrorists and the IRIG.

But back to this topic, too bad your reunion isn't be held in Azerbaijan, Turkey, Georgia, Iraq, Syria, etc. But those places probably aren't good enough for you, are they.

What country were you trying

by Sargord Pirouz on

What country were you trying to enter, France?

Hey, Iranian passport holders need no visa to enter Azerbaijan, Turkey, Georgia, Iraq, Syria, etc.

Maybe the actual problem is you foreigners belong back in your own country. Oh wait... that wasn't good enough for you.

So you have to fill out more forms. You are aware that there is a conflict with Zionism back in that part of the world, right? So you don't personally subscribe. That's ascertained by the paperwork.

Fearful - You will not be taken seriously

by Anonymous Observer on

I will make an exception this time to my general rule of ignoring you and will actually respond to you since you keep barking on my blogs trying to get attention (anyone with an ounce of self respect would have gotten the message by now, but hey).  Now, know this:

you will not be taken seriously until you provide us proof that you have given up your Western citizenship and have permanently moved to Iran to join the masses who you advocate to be the sacrificial lambs for your ideological experiments.  Otherwise, you're just a hypocrite sack of IR lard like the rest of them.

On fat boy, hassan nassrullah, AKA, "Sheikh che guevara"!!!!

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

He has been in hiding since his close associate, the cowardly child killer terrorist, imad mughnyeh was blown into pieces whilst in hiding in damescus and right in front of his assortment of Iranian and syrian bodyguards. Rumour has it that the fat not so brave sheikh, shaken by the loss of this close "associate", has  been so deeply in hiding at his north tehran mansion that it'd take him longer to crawl out of his hiding hole than it'd take emame zaman to crawl out of his chah at jamkharan on ghyamat. Unless "sheikh nassrullah guevara" is the emame zaman himself!

BTW, thanks for the Great blog AO

Sad story ... really.

by No Fear on

I have this friend who is a monarchist and has pictures of Shah and Farah in royal dressing with ridiculously big crowns on their heads hanging in his livingroom. When he had a few " foreigners" over for dinner ( a truely grand dinner i must add ), he went on and on ( without anyone asking ) showing poor quality youtube videos and pictures of the pre revolution era and trying pathetically hard to gain the approval and respect of his foreign guests. He looked desperate and weak.

When i confronted him about the whole freak show the other night, he replied;  "it is important to show these foreigners about the real Iran!. Let them see that we are not barbaric people! ..."                In his entire speech the whole point was to look good in front of others, no matter what. He lives his life the same way too. Two nice german cars, a big house, italian clothes and the whole nine yards and in debt for decades to come, you get the picture...

Now my question to those who feel ashamed carrying their Iranian passport;

Would you cancel your viagra subscription if your passport was well received by airport officials and you were treated with the utmost respect?

Why do you think we were respected during the shah era at the airports? ( Hint:  it wasn't because shah was a democrate at heart )

Do you feel better if members of our government wear suit and ties and are clean shaven?

Excellent Observations!

by G. Rahmanian on

However, what is to be done? As long as the murderous IR regime is in power things will not change! Only by establishing a democracy in Iran, Iranians can reclaim the respect they used to enjoy before hell broke loose in 1979!

Divaneh and Maziar Jan

by Anonymous Observer on

the whole point is about the IR putting ideology over national interest.  I don't care if the Israelis / Palestinians / Lebanese bite each other's heads off tomorrow.  Why would I care?  In fact, as you point out, and contrary to what we hear from the IR worshiping crowd here about Middle Eastern dictatorships and what they do to their people, the fact remains that ALL of these dictatorships (Jordan, Egypt, SA, etc.) at least have the decency and common sense of distancing themselves from these universally recognized terrorist groups and thereby elevating the image of their citizens.  Picture this: after 9/11, Saudi officials were all over the media distancing their country from the 19 Saudi hijackers.  By contrast, I bet you that if those 19 hijackers were Iranians, the IR would be bragging nonstop about their "courage" and martyrdom and how they were a part of their "asymmetric warfare" program.  That's a difference between a government and a band of revolutionary thugs mascaraing themselves as a government and driving their nation off of a cliff.  

The other interesting thing is that all of the IR cheerleaders that we see here in the West (and on IC) are holders of Western citizenships, and can travel without headaches to any part of the world they wish.  That, I guess is the ultimate hypocrisy, where you sit here with an American passport and yell and scream that Iranians should suffer the consequences of their lunatic government's actions.   At least Hassan Nasrollah had the decency of admitting his mistake.  I submit that the only way these crowd can show that  it's not just a hypocrite bunch is if they relinquish their Western citizenships and move back to Iran to join the Iranian masses.  What do you think the odds are of that ever happening?

I used to be against Israeli's atrocities in Lebanon and Palestine, but now when I see how Lebanese and Palestinian groups are united with the IRI and how the whole Mafia is bringing misery to all three nations, I cannot care less about their future. Aren't Jordanians mainly Palestinians? Why don’t they care? Is it because they know their own kind?

It is sad/offensive/humiliating that an innocent elderly lady had to be confronted with the question like whether or not she had received military training in Iraq or Afghanistan.......OMG!

   On the other hand, IRI is the proud supporter (sponsor/benefactor) of Hamas and Hezbollas:


I hope the lady gets her visa soon!
