Dear Media Editors;
For the ninth straight day, the people of Iran have taken to the streets to protest the dictatorship of the ruling religious clerics. The tyrants in Tehran have been brutally killing and injuring the innocent demonstrators whose only crime is the cry of freedom. The crack down is not only carried out by the anti-riot police, but also by Islamic vigilantes known as Ansaar-e-hezbolah. These savage vigilantes are attacking demonstrators with knives, screwdrivers, chains, mace, clubs and handguns. Watching Persian satellite television programs, the Iranian people are asking why the US media is not covering these events adequately. Over the years the Iranian government sponsored anti-US demonstrations have been well publicized and broadcast on the US national news; but now the real movement of the Iranian people is ignored. The Iranian population favors the United States of America more than any other nation, including their neighbors in the Middle East. The voices of the Iranians must be heard as the first Iranian revolution of the twenty first century looms in the near future. Your attention to this serious matter will insure long term friendship between our two nations.
Ramin Etebar, M.D.
DoctorZin Note: We need to continue to press the media to cover this story. If the media warns of this impending slaughter of protesters, our government and that of the free world will be encouraged to put further public pressure on the mullahs of Iran, warning them not to slaughter these innocent men and women, before its too late.
