Can we get away from the Political Islam?
The Iranian justice is based on the Sharia. Since 1979, the tyrants of the Islamic Revolution have introduced and pursued the Sharia in the dictatorship of Velayat-e Faqih. The people’s response is denial and obedience in silence. It follows Political Islam dogmas.
The Iranian media is caught between the hammer and the anvil. The Islamic Propaganda is everywhere: in books, films, children’s tales. The censorship has led to pervert self-censorship even in private conversations. It follows Political Islam dogmas.
The Iranian disrespect for the human rights is centuries old. The Islamic Republic’s file is worse than the Shah’s régime. Women, ethnic minorities and religions pay the price of the majority’s silence to the Valayat-e Faqih. It follows Political Islam dogmas.
The Iranian economy is based on the Velayat-Faqih dogma, corruption, baksheesh and subventions when necessary. High inflation and unemployment combined with low income has made the strategies of “muddling through” acceptable to the majority. It follows Political Islam dogmas.
The Iranians are, among themselves, uncompromising. Domestic despotism is commonplace within families. Faced with superior brute force, blind obedience prevails. Joining forces for common actions and interests are yet to be understood. It follows Political Islam dogmas.
Exporting the Iranian Revolution to the Middle-East is the Velayat-e Faqih’s dream.
The regime has spend lavishly on its allies in the region, hardly for peaceful purposes. And if “my money” is not enough, “my nuclear power” will be convincing. It follows Political Islam dogmas.
Democracy comes when the majority want it wholeheartedly and act to obtain it.
Democracy is build when empathy and solidarity replaces apathy, sectarian egoism and religious dogmatism.
A democratic Iran has yet to be conceived and nurtured.
