Excellent comment by Sohrabestan on Khamenei's failed plot to intimidate the people and intensify artificial divisions of Iranian society, considered (on purpose) as an incompatible crowd of different religious (Sunni, Shia) and ethnic groups (Kurds, Baluchis, Turkmens etc.)" rel="nofollow">

His account on mass killings of Kurdish inhabitants of Qarena village by Mola Hassani and his thugs in 1979 is heart-breaking...

Down with this murderous regime!

Thank you, brave Kurdish sisters and brothers! The Greens should take you as an example, and I hope you will unite for a free Iran, where the murderers of your sons and daughters shall be judged.

Farzad, Shirin, Ali and Farhad rooheshan shad.

P.S. Couldn't someone set up a condoleance site for the five executed? A kind of memorial site? I'm sure many would like to express their sorrow and sympathy. Thanks in advance.
