Protest against American imprisoned hikers


I share your pain and I really hope Islamic Iran releases your kids and all other prisoners asap but it appears Iran wants to exchange them but I suspect Islamic Iran favours a visit from a high profile US official to secure release of the hikers, like the case of Bill Clinton visit to North Korea and meeting with North Korean leader.


A protest in front of IRI Mission in New York on July 30, 2010


On the right side of photo the placard reads "Shame on you Iran". I wish someone would have wrote "Islamic Iran" instead Iran. Also I know it doesn't make any difference for an American but it makes different for an Iranian.

Update: Iran wants to exchange American hikers with 11 imprisoned Iranians in the USA. In a website called BarackObama.ir asks "Will Obama make three American mothers happy by releasing 11 Iranian prisoners?"
Iran didn't take three hikers to court since they have been arrested so definitely they are trying to pursue American government to take one step towards Iran and meets Iranian government demands.

I covered the news of three american mothers visited hikers in Iran in two posts:
1. The mothers of three American hikers jailed in Iran
2. Islamic republic of double standard

  1. I'm of two minds on this subject. I wouldn't wish the penal system of the Republic of Iran on nearly anyone--well, maybe Bin Laden or Hitler. But I don't believe that these people were "lost hikers." They wanted a story they could parlay into an article or book. They've got it now. Eventually the government will let them go and they will go on to write books that will sell pretty well. They probably should have been immediately deported so there'd be little story, but "tourists" need to obey the laws of the countries they are attempting to sneak into.

  2. By-the-way, we are hearing that someone or somebody attempted to murder the president. I'll be waiting for that blog.

    Former Mossad chief said: Iranian president 'says he wants to die a martyr so he should be sent to heaven' Now Ahmadinejad clan boast about Ahmadinejad that he is such a gem that Mosad wants to assassinate him.

  5. I would not wish an Islamic Republic jail cell on anyone, but are there not other places one can hike?? I didn't think Clinton should have gone and retrieved the two from N. Korea either. We have no one whom Ahmandinejad respects enough to turn over the "hikers" to.

    Unfortunately, Ahmadineja, crack-pot that he is, won't impact things much by dying. I don't think he's the real power. He isn't intelligent enough to be and killing him might just make things worse.

    If this are the kind of people they are then let's not waste time and money thinking about them.
