Curling with Ahmadinejad Curling with Ahmadinejad

The winter Olympics in Vancouver opened carrying the message of international peace and unity while in Haiti they still count dead and Iran’s dictators celebrate thirty years since state terrorism was connected for the first time with Islam; until then we were talking – with a lot of doubts I have to admit – about liberation movements.

I’m not sure who’s really watching these Olympics – except the Nordic countries and the Canadians of course – since the doping scandals started before even the games started just to remind us that nothing has change in the way we understand the Olympic spirit the last decades. And I’m not sure what the president of Haiti means when he says that the nation will not die but I’m sure that nothing good is coming from the cleric dictators of Iran and their puppet president.

The Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, practising something between curling and ski jumping announced that Iran has succeed production of 20% enriched uranium, that the Iranian army is ready for any challenge and that the revolution continues carrying its peaceful message. And to prove his words the regime threw to its deepest cells some more members of the opposition, boycotted transmissions of the international media in Iran stopping information to the Iranian people and shut more voices of freedom accusing them for plotting against …democracy!

The good news is the obvious, the Iranian people react! They are not scared and they know that the way to freedom has a lot of pain and blood but they are obviously determine to get there without any …convenient help like the one Iraq got. The bad news is that there is a lot of pain and blood in this road. The dark news is that despite the fact the international community after the Iraqi lesson wished to let the Iranian people to earn their freedom and be responsible for it themselves; the Iranian dictators and their puppet Mahmoud Ahmadinejad doesn’t want to leave the international community quiet.

It’s what I was saying before with the curling. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his puppeteers provoking constantly the international community either with sad comments about Israel or with the dangerous games with the nuclear power they think that they can call for national unity against the alien enemy. Religion has been from the very beginning the side effect for the entire act.

The bitter part is what I said in the beginning, after the revolution and all the acts of the fanatics in the region and the protection veil they put over series of organizations and teams, Iran managed to become the state or the institution that connected terrorism with Islam. PLO and other Palestinian organizations had long before started terrorist acts including murders and piracies that coasted lives in the end but till then it was liberation movements or terrorist groups with political motives and ideological background that sometimes despite their acts made sense.

Perhaps this must awake the other Muslim nation and understand how much damage this regime does not only to their relations with the international community but how much damage it does to their future and especially to a world that needs tolerance to survive. Perhaps nations like Indonesia can do the difference by saying to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that it is about time to shut up. And perhaps it is about time for Saudi Arabia to stop playing all these two face games, playing the peace messenger from one side and funding Iran not only with billions but with agreements and settlements that bust their arrogance.

Perhaps it is time for the international community to stop playing games with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his puppeteers, the cleric dictators of Iran and start …curling!

I think you go too far when you think any of the Arab countries actually have a democracy either ... you have to dig more and see that the whole Muslim region is dictatorship system. The difference is that Iranian people have a rich culture that helps them stand up against dictatorship ... and who can forget the effect of Worst Economic situation that Iran is experiencing compare to last 50 years in Iran.
