I'd like to express my deepest sympathies with Sep.11 vicitms and American people

Posted on 09/10/2005 10:00:45 PM PDT by Khashayar

On the 4th Anniversary of the tragic terrorist attacks in New York, Washington D.C and Pensylvania, I'd like to express my deepest sympathies with the victims of september 11th and the American people.

I am also aware that the Mullahs government in Iran has been acting improperly since 1979 and I am also aware that the Mullahs are not the true representatives of those of us who seek freedom, democracy and secularism in Iran so let me speak on behalf of those Iranians who really like the USA and would like to see better relations with American people and the government of the United States.

We, Iranians, condemn and denounce the barbaric acts of radical arabs/muslims in 9/11 and all other terrorist incidents around the world.

We'd like you to know that we dislike these people as much as you do.

Our homeland has been under their attack for the past 26 years and I believe the Islamic revolution of Iran inspired these idiots to initiate a direct attack on the US soil in 2001.

Ayatollah Khomeini taught the radical islamists that it is possible to harm civilians by occupying the US embassy in 1979.

And unfortunately, President Carter, by showing weakness helped them feel strong and paved the way for them.

I am not here to play the blame game now, but I just wanted to remind you that majority of Iranians who may be muslims too, have nothing to do with what happened in the past and especially with 9/11 and they all condemn it strongly.

Please accept my symapthies and we understand your pain and sadness!

Iranian citizens hold candles,on Sep 18th. 2001, in memory of victims of the terrorist attacks of 9/11 in NYC and Washington DC, in downtown Tehran. The crowd shouted "death to terrorists".

A condolence book sits in front of U.S and Swiss flags in Switzerland's embassy which is in the U.S interests section in Tehran, Iran, Sunday, Sept. 16, 2001, to pay tribute to the victims of Tuesday's terrorist attacks in the U.S. (as the US has no embassy in Iran)

That is all I can do.

I wish I could go to Iraq and fight along with American forces.

You aren't playing the blame game.
You spoke nothing more than the truth.

Thank you for expressing your sympathies so well.

I send you, your family, and the Iranian people, my best wishes, too.

The Iranians I have known in the United States, expatriots following the abdication of the Shah, have all been accomplished and dignified people, courteous and gracious to a fault. I hope we can strengthen ties with these good people, although I fear relations may be strained to breaking if Bush should have to take what I am convinced is necessary action to prevent atomic weapons from being fielded under the control of radical Shi'ite clerics with ties to terrorists.

Thank you very much.

Don't ever be disheartened by those who think we are enemies and not allies. Some people are very childish, well into adulthood.

Thanks for the post.

I look forward to the day when "the godless decadence of western society" is treated like the weather in Muslim nations- something that everybody complains about, but nobody does anything about.

This is a point a lot of folks on FR miss- free and democratic societies don't as a general rule present a threat to other nations. It's when democracy fails that bloodthirsty dictators rise to power.
Ever heard of Oliver Cromwell? He was a good Christian- but he was every bit as bad as Saddam Hussein. Just ask the "evil decadent godless" Irish.

It's not just Islam, folks. People who complain about the xenophobia and violence in the Koran had better go back and reread the Old Testament.

Thank you for your condolences. I pray that your Country will be freed both politically and spiritually.

I have to ask how you can belong to a religion that oppresses so many around the world and supports terrorism??

Great kneejerk cliche abaout the Old Testament. Perhaps you can give some examples of Christian Terrorism in the past 100 years?? You are trying to compare apples and Oranges by lumping all religions. I can give you more examples of atheistic mass murders than you can Christian.

My 2 cents:

Actually I believe that Islam hasn't gone through an Enlightenment era as Christianity did back in 16th & 17th centuries, yet.

But the problem with Islam is that it is not so peaceful in its core. It teaches violence very directly and it needs brave people to reform Islam.

You are partially right. Christ asks you to follow him and accept him as your Savior. Mohammad demanded it with a boot at your throat. This is the difference between Free Will and oppression.

An Afghani friend of mine said that Iranians call George Bush, "Jesus". Have you heard this?

Yes!

LoL

When US Forces captured Saddam and the news came out about that, I was in a Cab.

The Cab driver told me he likes Bush and he is the Imam Zaman of the world***

You might wanna google Imam Zaman though to understand what it means.

Let's see-
there's the IRA (good Catholics all)
The Orange Order (good Protestants all)
The abortion clinic bombings (go ahead and say it's "just a small fringe group and most Christians don't commit terrorism.")

There's also Christian Identity (AFAIK a neo-nazi type group.) Waiting for them to cross the line.

My feeling is this: once we kill off all the Muslim terrorists, Islamo-facists and Jihadists , the remaining Muslims will be on average much more peaceful.

The IRA is a Communist organization that wants to turn Northern Ireland Communist. The Orange brigade wants to keep Ireland the way it is. There were 2 abortion clinic bombings and have been universally denounced and whoever heard of your Christian Identity group that MAY become violent.

Now lets take a look at your atheist friends. Stalin, Lenin, Mao & Castro who systematically murdered over 100,000,000 innocent victims.

Finally your attempt to compare Muslim terrorism to the Christian religion is a childish attempt to lump religions together. If you will look around the World the Muslims are killing us Christians and not vice-versa.
