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.

Keeping this bumped******* Thanks for helping him. My prayers for his family. Here's my two cents: What about getting in touch with Mansoor Ijaz? Yes...he's of Pakistani origin, but he believes that the United States has the best plan for the middle east. He has connections here and abroad, and a lifetime of experience in gathering and delivering information to the U.S.

BLUEGRASS PING

DoctorZIn, I am PINGing my over-200-person Kentucky FReeper list, in the event that any of them have connections or can be of assistance.

Maybe Senator Mitch McConnell or Senator Jim Bunning could be helpful.

The Iranian gov is reading everything on FR that is related to Iran

4 million hits a day.

Every gov't on earth reads FR, and so do anarchists, Communists, nihilists, Libertarians, Islamists, Democrats, and students.

Whatever happened to the Iranian revolution? Is it over before it starts? Sure looks that way.

BTTT ...and good idea here:

In the News/Activism forum, on a thread titled Iranian Student Freeper Just Escaped Iran! He needs our help! – Ping this Post!, AmericanInTokyo wrote:
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.

Thanks for the ping.

Getting asylum may be tough. There are loose cannons in the CIA that don't like to be up-staged, and they work hard to block asylum for anyone who has intelligence that runs counter to their agenda.

Really, does everyone read FR? A non-conservative post is rare, even those deleted by mod.

Hey lurking Mullah's, *flips bird*

All the best to that student though, I'm sure someone here can help.

Just a suspicion, but I'd be willing to bet any senator or their staff willing and able to do something about this situation would be quietly working behind the scenes and would not necessarily be "out front" at this point. A surrogate is more likely. Don't lose hope that some people in high places are looking at it even as we speak.

Praying for the best possible outcome.

Well, you certainly didn't tell me 100 times, but I did obey and read your profile.

I'm a slow reader and it took me twenty minutes.

You must be patient, after all, with us older, retired PhD's.

That being said, perhaps you should change your handle to something that wouldn't cause misunderstandings. Like American In America. :-)
