A Group Confession in Support of Iran

In Uncategorized on September 22, 2009 at 2:20 pm

A group of beautiful souls from Australia have recorded a group confession in support of the green movement:

You really can’t imagine how heart warming these videos are. When you live in Iran and feel trapped between the walls of propaganda media and internet censoring, it’s easy to feel lonely. Its easy to feel that nobody cares. Thank you for reminding us that there are people out there who care. In every corner of the world, there are beautiful hearts that care for each other, regardless of how ugly the world may seem.

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.

Top 10 Ways to Overthrow a Regime Using Google Translate

In Uncategorized on August 10, 2009 at 4:02 am

GoogleTranslate

Twitter, Facebook and Google’s newly introduced Persian-to-English translation software were part of a vast foreign conspiracy against Iran, said a prosecutor today at the second session of an extraordinary trial against alleged ringleaders of weeks of unrest unfolding in Iran.

So reports the LA Times on the latest round of Stalin-like court trials, as Fareed Zakaria explains:

The above charge with respect to Facebook & Google Translate is especially interesting when we notice that the Iranian regime’s English language mouthpiece and propaganda channel, Press TV, uses both Facebook and Google Translate on every single story on its website. Although it has removed Google Translate from its newer theme, this is the bar that appears under each of its stories in the classic view:

Anyways, the thought that Google Translate can be part of a global conspiracy is so amazing that we thought we would invite all of you creative people out there to help us understand this claim by coming up with a list of imaginative ways in which this could be possible. We invite you to comment on this post with different ways to overthrow the Iranian government using Google Translate. We will then try to pick out some of the best and compile a list of the top 10 ways to overthrow a regime using Google Translate!

The Confessions of Grannie4peace

In Uncategorized on August 7, 2009 at 5:15 pm

YouTube user Grannie4peace has uploaded this very touching confession video that is touching people’s hearts:

This video is also popular on balatarin.com. Not to mention all the amazing comments it has been receiving here.

This lovely Grannie has previously made other great videos about Iran as well which you can check out on her YouTube channel. The most famous of these is her open letter to Khamenei:

This 62 year old, “semi retired letter carrier in Virginia” as she describes her self to us, has 4 children and 4 grandchildren. “I have been watching twitter since the election. I wanted the world to wear green for you. I watch everyday and pray for Iran”, she tells us, and says she also knows there is a little blind boy on twitter who prays to see Iran free also (We think she may be referring to PD90). This wonderful grannie says she has come to love the people of Iran and continues: “I mourn with the mourning mothers & belong to grandmothers for peace in the USA. We stand with the mourning mothers in silent protest against the crimes of torture & repression happening in iran!”

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!
