How to End The Era of Terror in Iran

Hoping that a military attack, coup, or any other interference would bring you to power in Iran is a wishful thinking. If you have any root inside Iran, use it to organize the movement of the masses and let their movement to continue and eventually establish the effective alternative that would end the era of repression in Iran.”

The Islamic Regime in Iran can be only brought down by a united and organized civil disobedience of the Iranian people who believe they deserve more than a bloody religious dictatorship. A widespread wave of protests in Iran is very promising. We should be especially delighted that our brave women who have not given up to years of suppression and repression are demonstrating the effectiveness of this tactics and strategy once again [1].


The day that thousands of women remove their cover and come to the street while being supported by thousands of freedom loving men, this religious dictatorship is gone. Without obedience, nothing would be left to be called “power.” Power is only defined by obedience. If we take that from the dictatorship, it is dead.


However, it takes more to than just sitting and lecturing, encouraging or shouting: “go and do it!” It would happen only if we all outside and inside Iran get involved.


The terrorist activities of the Islamic Regime cannot be stopped by its deceptive promises. It is written into the constitution that fundamentalist Islamic ideology should conquer the world.  This regime feeds its supporters by using this ideological animosity and has made itself the champion of the region. The severity of this is apparently not understood by the interest driven West. They wrongly think that having controlled and limited the atomic activities of this regime and give them legitimacy in return would let them preserve their economical interests.

There is no doubt that the nuclear ambitions and activities of the Islamic Regime are a danger to the whole world and must be stopped. However, it is a huge mistake to assume that it can be brought into the world community by either bribe and lucrative incentives or war. The reality of the Islamic Regime, based on its track record, is that it is and always be the daily danger to the lives of millions of Iranians and to the entire world. This threat must be removed and should be removed by Iranians to assure that it is not going to be replaced by another dictatorship that serves the West interests.

Yes; the Iranian people can do it. They can change this regime on their own and by doing so, bring peace and freedom to Iran and security to the whole world. Given the opportunity, Iranian activists can learn the theory and practice of civil disobedience and nonviolent action, devise a proper strategy, mobilize the masses and oust the oppressive rulers.

The Iranian freedom fighters see themselves against not only a religious dictatorship but the entire world that are ignoring the atrocities of their abuser and their only demand is to control its nuclear activities. Human rights is of course loudly demanded by words and it is on the table of any negotiation like a decorating flower but has no place in demanded actions. To empower the freedom loving Iranian inside Iran, Iranian activist outside Iran should try to remove the obstacle of the legitimacy that the West is giving to this regime. We should be able to show the interest-driven powers that their interests would be better served if they allow the will of the majority of Iranians for a democracy is fulfilled in Iran.

Issuing meaningless statements by the world community has done nothing. The U.S. And Europeans should enforce a "smart Sanction" that will impose pressure on the regime and not the people, and add the condition of the release of all political prisoners to the atomic condition. This will empower the Iranian people to bring about the real change in Iran without any military intervention. It will give them the powerful message that the entire world is behind them and not their enemy. They can overture this regime by civil disobedience. It is not easy but there is no other alternative. 

Thousands of freedom fighters who lost their lives during the era of IRI’s terror, thousands of political prisoners, and many mass uprisings are evidence that Iranians will not accept this regime and helping them will benefit the entire world without the need for any military intervention.

This important task is on the shoulder of Iranians outside Iran. We need to involve Iranians, take part in the political process, expose the human rights violation among non-Iranians, and by their help put ourselves in a position that we can dictate rather than beg the right course of action to politicians. 

And last but not least, a word of advice for those “oppositions” outside Iran who have become excited by the most backward American president in the history of the entire West:

Hoping that a military attack, coup, or any other interference would bring you to power in Iran is a wishful thinking. If you have any root inside Iran, use it to organize the movement of the masses and let their movement to continue and eventually establish the effective alternative that would end the era of repression in Iran.”
