Islamic Iran praises martyrdom

Following photo shows wrestler Tommy Rowlands of US, right, fights with his Iranian competitor Mohammad Hadi Pour Alijan on left in Iran, Aug 1, 2010. But I am not interested in the free style wrestling, well, not this one in particular. I am interested in the two posters on the right side.

Top right poster quoted Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: "Martyrs are symbol of power in Iran". Top center poster quoted late revolutionary founder, Ayatollah Khomeini: "Martyrs are candle for circle of humanity".

In Islamic teachings, defending homeland or Islam is considered a sacred religious obligation for all Muslims. Throughout history of Islam, Muslims have been taught that they should sacrifice their lives for their religious believes or homeland and their sacrifice considered as the most generous act for Islam. The sacrifice called martyr and martyrs have been important figures throughout Islam.

In Islamic Iran, martyrdom regarded as the most worthy act that a Muslim can accomplish. Children has systematically taught the value of sacrificing their lives for religion and/or homeland. Children textbooks has been teaching the very fundamental value of "killing for defending your own belief" and media conveying the same values.

Islamic Iran has spent steadily on propaganda since the beginning of revolution in 1979. People have bombarded by the Islamic fundamental values since then, and when I saying this is Islamic fascism because I  see with my eyes and I can identify key characteristics of fascism in society.

  1. The Islamic world is peopled by over 1.4 Billion potential Kamikazi attackers.

  2. This is scary. Good job on reporting the lunatic asylum that is theocratic Iran.

  3. Imaging politicians in the ´West´ with such texts above their heads. ROLF I mean, to put it mildly, there is a gap in political culture.

  4. I have been searching for active Persian blogs. What has happened to many of them? Regarding your post, this is standard practice of politicizing the masses not to think too much. It happens in many totalitarian countries. This practice is rather routine. It will eventually change, eventually. How long is "eventually"? That depends on the situation.....I suspect that your gov. is preparing for some future showdown with Israel. So, "eventually" could be in 2011? Late 2011? I don't know, just my feelings. Well good luck. Just keep up the act, and pretend its all normal. Things will change for the better after whatever happens between Israel and Iran. Of course alot of people might suffer, but on the other side, it will be better for those living and "martyred".

  5. Standard Iranian regime propaganda posters

  6. Iranians will not martyr themselves for these dirty rabble.But we will martyr ourselves for FREEDOM!If khamenei loves martyrdom so much why not go under a pink bus.

  7. i was so glad to see an active blog! thanks for keeping the rest of us updated!


  9. @ EdoRiver

    Sorry to get back at you late.

    Do you know Persian language? because if you do, there are way too many active Persian blogs.

  10. If I use martydom to save Iran from Islamo Gangster Mafia Regime its worth it !

  11. Why doesnt khamenei and his cronies just leave us in peace and freedom just by a simple act of martydom now that I do support!

  12. ¶2. (S) According to source, President Ahmedinejad surprised
    other SNSC members by taking a surprisingly liberal posture
    during a mid January post-Ashura meeting of the SNSC called
    to discuss next steps on dealing with opposition protests.
    Source said that Ahmedinejad claimed that "people feel
    suffocated," and mused that to defuse the situation it may be
    necessary to allow more personal and social freedoms,
    including more freedom of the press.

    ¶3. (S) According to source, Ahmedinejad's statements
    infuriated Revolutionary Guard Chief of Staff Mohammed Ali
    Jafari, who exclaimed "You are wrong! (In fact) it is YOU
    who created this mess! And now you say give more freedom to
    the press?!" Source said that Jafarli then slapped
    Ahmedinejad in the face, causing an uproar and an immediate
    call for a break in the meeting, which was never resumed.
    Source said that SNSC did not meet again for another two
    weeks, after Ayatollah Janati succesfully acted as a
    "peacemaker" between Jafarli and Ahmedinejad. Source added
    that the break in the SNSC meeting, but not the slap that
    caused it, has made its way on to some Iranian blogs.

  13. @ANONYMOUS...Does it matter what Ahmedinejad or Ali Jafari or come to think of it any of them say or do is going to change our view about all of them.They are nothing but killers rapists thiefs and liers so dont wast our time about telling us he did this and he said that we have been hearing this nonsense for over thirty years.This is how they control the public by these pathetic storys about this or that so no more of these storys we just want complete regime change that means all of them leader and all must be put on trial by the NEW FREE IRAN without mullahs or mullahs law or mullah boys.This rejime must go we dont want it in any shape form or colour so next time you have any real news about Iran then post or else dont waste our time reading it or you righting it..ok?

  14. My correction above...reading it or writing it...ok?

  15. I think some these iranians which report these storys are traitors of the people.Your right friend I do not understand what they will gain from these storys makes you wonder.Never mind my friend we know they are just jokers working for the dirty islamic regime.

  16. They should all drop dead.Down with the blood thirsty islamic dirty state!Only freedom for Iran!

Martyrdom is getting killed for god or while defending your country, im not muslim but I know this, killing yourself or blowing yourself up to kill innocents is a big sin in islam, why you're misleading people????!!!!! Here in uk every year we praise the soldiers that got killed in ww2 or in falkland war, if we do its ok but if iranians or muslims do its fascism???!!!!!!!!!!
