A 30 November report of the representative in Europe of the Fedayeen Majority denounces the “extensive massacre, resembling only those seen in Nazi death camps”. “The massacre of political prisoners has taken place in the prisons of Tehran, Isfahan, Kerman, Khoram Abad, Gilan, Mazandaran, Hamendan, Gachsaran, Oromieh, Tabriz” and other cities. “Three hundred political prisoners have been buried in two mass graves in Khaavaraan cemetery (in East Tehran)…. In addition to daily execution of groups of political prisoners in Evin, a large number of them were murdered in a deliberate explosion and destruction of an auditorium where they had been assembled.”
And a 21 September 1988 statement of the Kurdistan Organisation of the Communist Party of Iran (Komala) said of the criminal mass executions of the “Islamic Republic”: “These turbaned dictators are looking for victory in the city streets and in prison cells to make up for their defeat in the war fronts of Iran and Iraq. They are trying desperately to extend their onerous life through terror and intimidation by setting up execution squads.” Continue reading
It’s hard to buck social norms, group think. Most don’t. In this video, unsuspecting participants are manipulated into joining an innocuous activity. From what is shown, they follow almost without question. They may wonder, but none appear to demand real answers. Absent is a rigorous analysis of the ridiculous — pointless — group behavior of those around them. Instead, they fall … Continue reading
Adara Press wrote on this issue in 2014, To speak the truth on the Left today is to expose oneself to almost certain shunning, political exile, and professional suicide, particularly when it comes to Israel. Few dare to take a closer look, to risk losing one’s place in the progressive community, where Jews are afforded … Continue reading
Make no mistake. CODEPINK is the new face of Fascism. Today’s Jackboots are wearing pink — pink-washing the imprisonment and torture of Iranian labor leaders, teachers, and Iranian political dissidents, pink-washing state sanctioned pedophilia, and public hangings and executions in the hundreds perpetrated by the Islamic junta of Iran.

“In 1986, Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the mullah who served as President of the Islamic Republic, wrote a letter to German Chancellor Helmut Kohl emphasizing “our common Aryan roots.” Kohl’s Foreign Minister Klaus Kinkel liked to speak of “our joint heritage and a 100-year alliance”. Continue reading

In 2009 in a letter to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed that the Irano-German “alliance, broken by the Allies in 1941” should be revived. — Matthias Küntzel
Qatar is enslaving thousands of foreign workers to build the architectural wonders it plans to display at the World Cup. The wealthy Gulf kingdom has spared no expense, even if the cost is thousands of lives — the lives, that is, of poor foreign laborers from across the developing world. Toiling long hours in scorching desert heat, and housed in squalid, overcrowded labor … Continue reading
It was near to impossible for the Yugoslav Socialist government and the Serbian people, to get a fair hearing – most notably on the Left, especially among liberals, progressives, academics, and human rights activists thanks to the efforts of so many leading lights in the “alternative” world of progressive group-think.
