The Islamic republic regime is using all its mouthpieces in order to warn Germany on "the consequences" of the construction, by Berlin's City Council, of a memorial piece for the victims of the Mykonos Restaurant tragedy.
While the regime's Foreign Ministry and its Ambassador, a former notorious Hezbollah thug, have protested beside the German authorities, the new Tehran Mayor, Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad who's reputed for murder of opponents himself, has warned Berlin's Mayor in a letter partially published in the today's issue of Tehran Times. Ahmadi-Nejad has threatened that "Tehran municipality is being pressed by the victims of chemical warfare and their families to list the names of the countries in a panel which provided the ousted regime of Saddam with chemical warfare, particularly Germany as the main provider".
Several Iranian opponents were slained by the Islamic regime's terrorists during a sit in gathering at the famous restaurant. The terrorists were arrested and condemned, in 1997, by the German justice particularly due to the integrity of Bruno Yoos, the German Prosecutor, who stood up against all pressures made by the German Government which was promoting the policy of "Constructive Dialogue" with the clerics.
"The Highest levels of the Islamic republic regime are involved in these murders" stated Mr. Yoos, who issued an International Arrest Warrant against several of regime's officials especially against the notorious Rafsanjani's Ministry of Intelligence Ali Fallahian.
It's to note that the majority of Berlin's City Council's members have resisted, so far and just as like as Bruno Yoos, against their Government's pressures; And that the German Government is still looking to use any occasion in order to release the jailed terrorists held in its prisons. http://www.daneshjoo.org/generalnews/article/publish/article_5497.shtml

Putting an End to the Wildlife of the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI)

Almost 35 years ago Bijan Mofid, one of Irans greatest contemporary playwrights, in his famous play "Shahr-e Ghesseh" ("The City of Fable"), very creatively and correctly presented the Iranian Mullahs (Islamic clergymen) as "foxes" scattered throughout society with no value added. In that entertaining play he showed the Mullahs as hypocritical personalities who continuously lie and deceive the Iranian masses. This was the same exact message that other Iranian playwrights, poets, and thinkers, such as Mirza Agha-Khan Kermani, Iraj Mirza, Obaid Zakani, Hafez, etc., have communicated to Iranian people in different eras.
-A Page from History: A New Fox (i.e., Khatami) Is Born-
On April 10, 1997, a German court convicted four Iranians in the 1992 murders of dissident Iranian-Kurdish leaders in a Berlin restaurant, the Mykonos. The prosecutors proved that the "highest state levels" in Irans capital ordered the killings, specifically, Iran's "Committee for Special Operations," which comprises of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, President Rafsanjani, Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Velayati, and Information and Security Minister Ali Fallahian. Furthermore, the court ruled that Mr. Fallahian had overseen the operations logistics; since the court had previously issued an international arrest warrant for him, the case remains open. The courts ruling led the E.U. nations (15 countries) to withdraw their ambassadors from Tehran on April 11; immediately afterward (on April 15) Japan suspended its high-level dialogue with Iran.
These events combined were about to deliver the final blow to the Islamic Republic of Iran. Already under severe economic and political sanctions by the U.S., the IRI could not afford to undergo additional isolation from the West. For the IRI, the new widespread political sanctions by the 15 E.U. countries and Japan were absolutely unbearable. By April 15, 1997, the Islamic Republic of Iran became completely isolated from the Western world. With the complete failure of its internal policies and objectives and now entirely isolated from its badly needed Western support, the IRI needed to present a completely different image in order to rebuild its badly damaged relationships with its European trade allies.
The IRI was left with only two options: (1) It could wait for a sudden internal blow-up, which in turn would inevitably cause its destruction, or (2) it could design a sophisticated pressure-release mechanism to present a "newer and gentler IRI" to the West. This is the reason behind the sudden birth of its smiling President, Mr. Khatami, and the creation of state-controlled and state-managed dog-and-pony MODERATE party.
Supporters of the Fox. . .
In 1997 selected groups of Iranians in the West worked very diligently and assiduously to support the IRIs new-born fox, Khatami. These groups included (1) Irans Godless leftover leftists who, almost overnight, finally found God, (2) the usual well-known loyal IRI supporters in the West, (3) many pro-Constitutional Monarchy political activists who are as confused as always, and (4) selected infamous Iranian producers and journalists working in the Iranian media in Los Angeles, etc.
For the first two years under the IRIs newborn fox, Presidency Khatami, these groups did their best to promote and support Khatami as much as possible. They used every possible justification to rationalize Khatamis ineffective, meaningless, deceiving policies and behaviors. They fought anyone who was against Khatami, claiming that everyone needed to support this newborn child so that he can bring democracy and justice to Iran and the Iranian people.
Gradually many of these people realized that Khatamis only function was to prolong the IRIs life in Iran; they started distancing themselves from Khatami and his dog-and-pony show, called "the Reformist Movement." Some even went so far as to claim that they never supported the newborn fox. Thanks to the Information Age, they can lie but they cannot erase their well-documented past!
This entire ordeal created further division among the Iranian opposition forces living in the West, a division that fosters the IRIs overall short- and long-term strategic objectives.
