The caption reads:

Parts of Facebook’s confessions in today’s trials:

I killed Neda Agha Soltan. Social sciences are really bad too! Mousavi is an American, he has written things in me that are anti-revolutionary, same with Karroubi, I’ll give you the names of all the greens that are my members, and right now an enormous spiritual transformation has occurred in me. I have a gentle interrogator that continuously increases my bandwidth!

(The last line reffers to rape in Iranian prisons)

A twitter user Talkoholic, has announced her confessions to the Iranian state media and posted them on YouTube. You can see them here:

This “common revolutionary greenie girl” as she likes to be known as, tells us that she was inspired to make the confession after reading Iran_Translator‘s Green Brief #46. She hates it when some people try to control other people’s minds and recommends this book chapter by Dr. Robert J. Lifton to everyone.

Many people have enjoyed her confession clip, which gave us the idea to start this website.

Update: This video has also been posted on Iranian.com and has received some comments there too.

Ebrahim Nabavi Mocks Confessions

In Uncategorized on August 3, 2009 at 2:21 am

Mohammad Ali Abtahi is one of Iran’s most lovable clerics, also known as the “blogging mullah”. You can get to know him by watching his appearance on The Daily Show. When he was arrested, many people predicted that he would be forced to make false confessions under physical and / or psychological torture. This prediction recently came true. But before it did, famous Iranian comedian and satirist Ebrahim Nabavi posted a video on YouTube imagining what Abtahi’s confession might look like.

Here is the English translation.

It is worth noting that Nabavi himself was once arrested and forced to confess. He soon fled the country and announced that the confession was by force. As you can see, Nabavi had a lot of fun with this clip and you can too 🙂
