Iranian Student Freeper Just Escaped Iran! He needs our help! Ping this Post!
Regime Change Iran ^ | 12.2.2004 | DoctorZin

Posted on 12/02/2004 8:29:00 AM PST by DoctorZIn

We have an Iranian Freeper that needs our help.

We first met in the summer of 2003 when I was reporting on the protests inside of Iran (Iranian Alert Daily Threads). This young man kept us on FR informed by sending me “on the spot reports” at risk to his life about these protests, which I posted for him.

After the protests died down, he would send messages trying to educate Americans and those in the west about what the average Iranian thinks of America and what kind of support the people of Iran need to see a regime change take place in his country.

Well, this friend of ours was forced to go “underground” a month ago. The Iranian regime discovered that he had passed information to our government. As a result, for the past month the regime has been hunting him. He had to keep on the move every few hours. He was nearly captured several times. He struggled with depression, health and fear. It was a horrifying situation. I tried to encourage him to the best of my ability.

After many weeks he was finally able to get help and sneak out of the country.

But now he could use some help from the Freeper community.

We need to ensure that when he finally gets to a US embassy that they will help him, not merely refer him the UN refugee program.

We are asking any Freepers that have contacts in the administration or the state department to please contact us. We are seeking a way to help him get asylum.

He risked his life for us; the least we can do is help him.

If you have a ping list, please ping this thread to your ping list. There must be someone on FR that can help us.

Thanks in advance,

DoctorZin and our Iranian Freeper


PS Our Iranian Freeper still has family in Iran so we have to limit what we are saying on this thread. But I can give much more detailed information to contacts in our government. Thanks.

Be careful what you write here. The Iranian gov is reading everything on FR that is related to Iran, so do not post any real time information or anything that might compromise anything.

Good work.

Now, down to business.

Of the hundreds, perhaps thousands of people reading this thread, there could be several from the Iranian Mission at the United Nations, Americans who are friends of the Islamist Republic regime, or perhaps even Iranian staff employees of this:

...MOIS, who could easily be reading and monitoring. My best recommendation is to contact a solid conservative, pro-Iranian Democracy-supporting United States Senator on the Foreign Affairs or Intelligence Committees, (such as through his chief administrative assistant or legislative director, who should have a security clearance), using a secure communication method and make a connection that way. I am sure you would not just pass on information here in open forum, to some freeper who you cannot confirm is on the right side or not. I am sure through the route I have suggested, the individual could be protected and correctly attended. Thanks again.

What about contacting the Iranian Americans that have a TV station that is broadcasting into the Middle East?

Or did I confused them with Iraqis?

Well, I guess we could blitzgreig the government and conservative media.

Each of us contacting our representatives and senators from state to federal levels.

AND contacting all of the government agencies that we feel could help, plus Rush, Sean Hannity, etc.

The squeaky wheel gets the attention and this would prevent anyone from trying to send him back to Iran. Too many of the good guys would know.
