Great news! Great news! The deadly
confrontation between the U.S. and the Islamic Republic of Iran is
about to become history. The dove of peace is here in the person
of the Smiling Mullah Khatami. Just look at his serene face with
and ever-present reassuring smile. It makes you forget all your
troubles, doesn’t it?
If by looking at him you are not comforted, it may be the way he
is dressed that seems alien—the turban, the cloak and all. Fine.
Then let us listen to what he preaches. After all he is a man of
the cloth and preaching is his line.
As the past president of the Islamic Republic of Iran, he is fully
privy to what goes on in that land, what his co-turbaned
colleagues are up to, and what they want from the world. Ever
since he ascended to the presidency of the Islamic Republic of
Iran, he has portrayed himself as an advocate of moderation,
upholder of the rule of law and promoter of the “Dialogue of
Civilizations.” For eight years, the long-suffering people of Iran
and the world held their breath to see what he would do about the
ideals he professed. Unfortunately, the Smiling Mullah turned out
to be a genuine mullah—fake to his bones. More importantly, he is
a genocidal criminal who should be tried in a court of law, rather
than being received as a high-ranking dignitary. Here is a partial
During the Smiling Mullah’s Presidency, the rule of law was
flaunted blatantly from day one.
1. Thousands of dissident students, intellectuals and journalists
were systematically arrested, imprisoned and tortured for the sole
crime of speaking up against the repressive rule of the mullahs.
Many are still languishing in prisons, some have died, and some
have simply vanished with no records of what happened to them.
2. During this turbaned fascist’s watch, many students’ lives were
extinguished for daring to express their opposition to the
stone-age regime. Shamelessly, during the 9 July of 1999 students
demonstration, for instance, this man called the Tehran university
students “A bunch of hooligans,” while his storm-trooper
hooligans, with police support, brutally attacked students in
their dormitories throwing some students out of the windows of the
dorm’s third floor. Now, he is welcomed at Harvard University to
lecture its “hooligans” and faculty on practicing tolerance.
3. Arrested dissidents were denied the due process of law. Those
who were granted perfunctory hearings before receiving the guilty
verdict were not allowed legal counsel. The few who were granted
legal counsel saw even their attorneys imprisoned for defending
4. Prisoners of conscience were routinely tortured to extract
confessions about the crimes they did not commit. Some of the
victims were permanently incapacitated while others died under the
5. No human rights organizations were allowed to inspect the
6. Women prisoners were often subjected to even greater
indignities than men by being raped before being executed, under
the cover of marriage. A prison mullah performed the forced
marriage ceremony to make it conform to the Islamic ethos.
7. Stealth work on the nuclear program, in clear violation of the
non-proliferation treaty to which the IRI is a signatory,
proceeded ahead at full speed and with generous funding.
8. Persecution of religious minorities continued apace. Most
notably, his government targeted Iran’s Baha’is—Iran’s largest
religious minority—recognized universally as peaceful and
law-abiding people. Baha’is, solely for their belief, were fired
from their jobs, with many forced to pay back the salaries they
had received for years of service. Youth were coerced to convert
to Islam in order to continue their education beyond high school.
Properties and businesses were confiscated, elected officers of
the Baha’i communities imprisoned and some executed, their holy
places, even their cemeteries were leveled; and, much, much more.
9. Support for terrorism constituted a high priority. It extended
not only to the neighboring countries, but as far away as Latin
America. Hezbollah in Lebanon was nurtured with funds, weapons and
training. Hamas and the Islamic Jihad were assisted in numerous
ways, and a professional army of Shiite Iraqis was trained and
armed to be used in the present Iraqi theatre. Separately, Muqtada
al-Sadr and his militia thugs—the Mahdi Army—is directly funded,
armed and controlled by the present Islamic regime, a gift of the
Smiling Mullah to his successor—the rabid Mahmood Ahmadinejad.
10. In his devious attempt to lull the world into a false sense of
security, the Smiling Mullah floated the notion of “Dialogue of
Civilization,” to appear as a man of reason who is willing to
reconcile the differences between and among various civilizations
through dialogue. This clever ploy was exposed as nothing more
than an Islamofascist propaganda tool. In actuality, his side’s
dialogue proved to be a diatribe against civilization.
The Smiling Mullah is no less a criminal than other Islamofascists
such as his own predecessor, Akbar Refsanjani, Zarqawi, and Osama
Many analysts are rightfully concerned about the danger of Islamic
sleeper cells in the United States. They fear that these sleeper
cells can be activated at any moment upon receiving orders from
their controllers in Iran and Lebanon. Yet, the fact is that the
Islamofascists’ greatest assets are the legions of American
“Useful Idiots” already actively tearing at the very fabric of our
Many universities in the U.S. are bastions and incubators of
Useful Idiots. Far left professors do more than teach their
subjects of specialty. They feel that they have license to
pontificate on any and all matters. That is why they are called
“professors.” These self-appointed prima donnas cover themselves
with the shield of academic freedom. Academic freedom is like
liberty—it can be abused and is abused greatly. That is the price
of freedom. Yet, these abusers of freedom, the far left Useful
Idiots, will be among the first to be buried under the rubble of
the free society’s collapse they work so doggedly to bring about.
The mullahs don’t have to even allocate the money from a single
barrel of oil to have these Useful Idiots work around the clock to
implode this country from within. They read the papers, they watch
the television reporters and they are just happy to bide their
time for the New Rome to collapse on itself. If the implosion does
not happen, that’s no problem. They will continue on with their
work to acquire the nuclear weapons and make it happen. Is this
being alarmist or paranoid? Not at all. Besides, one good thing
about the being paranoid that the Useful Idiot cannot claim: The
paranoid is a survivor. And, we know the mullahs up-close and just
too well. Some of our very own brothers, sisters, parents,
children and friends have been murdered brutally and without the
least mercy by these modern day soldiers of Allah. They are the
most vicious fascist killers and we do not—I repeat, we do
not—intend to go down passively as their next victims.
