Facebook Appears in Iranian Trials to Confess

In Uncategorized on September 16, 2009 at 7:03 am

After multiple mentions by Iranian officials of Facebook as being one of the criminal elements behind the post-election unrest, Facebook personally appeared in the latest round of trials today to confess. Iranian bloggers who took a picture of Facebook confessing uploaded the picture online:

FacebookConfess

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)

Confessing with a guitar

In Uncategorized on September 6, 2009 at 7:26 pm

Another poetic confession, this time with just a guitar:

I confess…

We are everywhere,

In memory of martyrs, we are Neda and Sohrab,

Resistant and hopeful, we are all together,

We are freeborn, and love Iran…

la la la la, la la…

An Interrogation Session in Evin Prison

In Uncategorized on August 20, 2009 at 10:57 pm

Most of our confessions so far have not featured the interrogators. However, we have now received chilling footage of an interrogation session in Evin prison. These images have been leaked from insiders and have reached us through Spain via this top secret YouTube channel. Hey you! I said its top secret, don’t click!

At the end of the video apparently a technical problem occurred and there is no news on what happened to the prisoner. Rumor has it that this violent creature is still at large on the streets of Tehran. We do not know if the interrogator is still alive.

The Suspicious Portuguese…

In Uncategorized on August 12, 2009 at 3:32 pm

While the Iranian government is busy pointing to some Western countries such as Britain, France, or the USA for devising a “velvet revolution” in Iran, a new video reveals yet again that the true perpetrators have gone unnoticed:

Indeed, the Portuguese have been suspiciously silent on the recent events in Iran…

Note: The scarf referred to as “Chafiye” in this video is introduced in Wikipedia as “Keffiyeh”. For Iranians this scarf became a symbol of the Iran-Iraq war and also the Basij. The Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, wears a “Chafiye” in most of his public appearances. Since these types of scarves have only recently become fashionable in Western countries, you could say Khamenei has been a step ahead of the fashion trends! 😀

A Poetic Confession

In Uncategorized on August 11, 2009 at 3:16 am

The pro-democracy green movement of Iran has produced a new confession video which is currently gaining popularity and being widely shared on the internet. It is in the form of a musical song, something almost like a dark poetic rap / hip-hop song. Serious and gloomy. Now it is available with English subtitles:

The English is of course just a literal translation and unfortunately does not capture the poetic beauty of the song.

Stalin’s Pipe

In Uncategorized on August 10, 2009 at 5:03 pm

While Stalinist show trials are happening in Iran, the following Stalin joke (source) is becoming very popular among Iranians and being shared with Facebook, Yahoo messenger and other social networking tools:

A delegation from his native Georgia leaves Stalin’s office after a long meeting. Stalin realizes that he cannot find his pipe and calls Dzerzhinsky to find out if anyone from the delegation took his pipe. After 30 minutes Stalin finds the pipe under the table and calls Dzerzhinsky to let the delegation go. Dzerzhinsky answers Stalin’s call: “I am sorry Comrade, but one half of the delegation already admitted that they took your pipe, and the other half died during questioning.”

The sad thing is that to Iranians these days, it sounds more like reality than just a joke.

The Underground Tunnel Under The UK Embassy

We finally figured out who built the underground tunnel under the British embassy in Tehran:

This shameless CIA and BBC(!) agent does not even regret her immoral actions 😀 We love the funny accent.

Galileo’s Confessions

In Uncategorized on August 8, 2009 at 6:50 pm

One of the most striking confessions that show the absurdity of forcing people to confess under torture comes from Galileo Galilei, the person who discovered that the world was not flat and that the Sun does not revolve around Earth. These confessions that are circulating in social networks these days to remind us of the absurdity of the forced confessions taking place in Iran today, are taken from this source:

I, Galileo, son of the late Vincenzio Gaillei of Florence, seventy years of age, arraigned personally for judgment, kneeling before you Most Eminent and Most Reverend Cardinals Inquisitors- General against heretical depravity in all of Christendom, having before my eyes and touching with my hands the Holy Gospels, swear that I have always believed, I believe now, and with God’s help I will believe in the future all that the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church holds, preaches, and teaches. However, whereas, after having been judicially instructed with injunction by the Holy Office to abandon completely the false opinion that the sun is the center of the world and does not move and the earth is not the center of the world and moves, and not to hold, defend, or reach this false doctrine in any way whatever, orally or in writing; and after having been notified that this doctrine is contrary to Holy Scripture; I wrote and published a book in which I treat of this already condemned doctrine and adduce very effective reasons in its favor, without refuting them in any way; therefore, I have been judged vehemently suspected of heresy; namely of having held and believed that the sun is the center of the world and motionless and the earth is not the center and moves.

Therefore, desiring to remove from the minds of your Eminences and every faithful Christian this vehement suspicion, rightly conceived against me, with a sincere heart and unfeigned faith I abjure, curse, and detest the above-mentioned errors and heresies, and in general each and every other error, heresy, and sect contrary to the Holy Church; and I swear that in the future I will never again say or assert, orally or in writing, anything which might cause a similar suspicion about me; on the contrary, if I should come to know any heretic or anyone suspected of heresy I will denounce him to this Holy Office, or to the Inquisitor or Ordinary of the place where I happen to be.

Furthermore, I swear and promise to comply with and observe completely all the penances which have been or will be imposed upon me by this Holy Office; and should I fall to keep any of these promises and oaths, which God forbid, I submit myself to all the penalties and punishments imposed and promulgated by the sacred canons and other particular and general laws against similar delinquents. So help me God and these Holy Gospels of His, which I touch with my hands.

I, the above-mentioned Galileo Galilei, have abjured, sworn, promised, and obliged myself as above; and in witness of the truth I have signed with my own hand the present document of abjuration and have recited it word for word in Rome, at the convent of the Minerva, this twenty-second day of June 1633.

I, Galileo Gililei, have abjured as above, by my own hand

The Joy of Prison

In Uncategorized on August 7, 2009 at 3:08 am

Who said that people in Iranian prisons are forced to confess under torture?! We know for a fact based on the following confession from a reader in Austria that Iranian prisons are utterly enjoyable:

Yes, indeed for V.I.P treatment you do not even need to go all the way to prison yourself, the ride and beautiful bearded escorts are entirely free!
