The West’s Great Betrayal

Western countries ignore the rights of Iranians to live in freedom like the citizens of the West.
The masses were threatening to topple the regime in Tehran during the 2009–10 Iranian election protests. The new Geneva agreement tore the mask from the face of hypocrisy that characterizes the politicians in the West today, who don't care at all about Iranians' right to freedom.

The masses were threatening to topple the regime in Tehran during the 2009–10 Iranian election protests. The new Geneva agreement tore the mask from the face of hypocrisy that characterizes the politicians in the West today, who don't care at all about Iranians' right to freedom.

Since the signing of the Geneva agreement between Iran and the group of six countries at the end of last week, media outlets the world over have been discussing the agreement and the easing of sanctions, what Iran will give in return and the ability – which exists or does not exist – to oversee whether the Iranians, who have lied and cheated the world for many years, will faithfully carry out what they agreed to and signed on. There were those who wondered about the absence of the demand for Iran to dismantle the plutonium reactor in Arak, whose purpose is only military, and there were those who calculated the time that would be required for the Iranians to renew the activity toward producing a bomb. The media outlets of the world dealt quite a bit with Israel’s concern, the rage of the Saudis’ and people in the Gulf Emirates, and everyone wonders what Israel will do, who is not part of the agreement.

The common element among most of those who have been discussing the matter is that everyone sees only two sides, Iran and the West, and ponders which of these two sides has gained more from the agreement. Most of the commentators ignore the third party, large but silent, in pain but obedient, who experienced a major defeat as a result of the agreement. This party is the majority of eighty million Iranians. It is no secret that the great majority of Iranian citizens hate the regime of the Ayatollahs with all their hearts, and from time to time express this hatred with demonstrations and street disturbances, such as those that swept the streets of Iran after the “elections” for presidency in June of 2009 and which brought about the deaths of hundreds of demonstrators who were champions of liberty and hungry for freedom.

They, the restless young men and women, secular up to their ears, aspiring to freedom but living under oppression, educated but unemployed, suffering from the terrible corruption that the regime of the ayatollahs is immersed in, hoped that the economic sanctions on the dark regime would suffocate it and bring it to its end. This was not a wild hope: in the past it was learned that at the height of the wave of protest demonstrations about the stealing of the elections in which Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was “reelected” in 2009, the rulers of Iran had two jets prepared in order to leave the country and escape from the raging masses.

Now, after the agreement that was signed in Geneva, the sanctions are eased and the regime is beginning to breathe more easily. The Iranian Rial – which had lost about half of its value in recent years – rose last week by two percent. The economic optimism causes new blood to flow in the clogged veins of the regime, and all of the freedom seekers in Iran feel that the historic opportunity to rid themselves of the dark fanatics who rule their lives and deaths has been squandered. The sanctions, which were a non-violent weapon, could have subdued one of the most violent regimes in the world, if the Western countries had only maintained them.

But the West has again shown its ugly face and the fact that money is more important in their eyes than values: the deals with the regime of the ayatollahs have so blinded the leaders of the western countries that they don’t see the rights of the Iranians to live in freedom like the citizens of the West. For a handful of Iranian petrodollars the politicians prefer to remove from the list of demands, the right of the citizens of Iran to enjoy the values of democracy that the citizens of the West enjoy. In the past the West would have examined the behavior of countries with a long series of matters related to human rights and civil political freedoms, and they would reach economic conclusions in accordance with a country’s compliance with ethical standards.

The Geneva agreement tore the mask from the face of hypocrisy that characterizes the political behavior of many politicians in the West today. From their point of view the eighty million Iranians can continue to live lives of misery, oppression and degradation under an illegitimate, cruel and bloodthirsty regime that spreads terror and death all over the world and is directly or indirectly responsible for the murder of many thousands in Syria, in Iraq, in Yemen, in Israel and in many other countries. The West of today has lost its faith in the values that sustain it and upon which its culture was founded, and it is willing today to do business with mass murderers for economic gain that will result from these deals. The ayatollahs’ money is what is important, and therefore their regime is too, and to hell with eighty million Iranians and their right to live a life of freedom.

Western hypocrisy has proven itself again recently, with the European Union forcing Israel to sign the “Horizon 2020″ agreement for academic participation with the condition that Israel will submit to the dictates of the Europeans who do not recognize the right of the People of Israel to live in all parts of its historic land, that was promised to it again in the resolutions of San Remo, which have been in effect since 1920 and are still relevant. The European Union is not interested in the Moroccan occupation in western Sahara, and despite the fact that Europe does not recognize the annexation of the territory to Morocco, the Europeans do not see any problem in signing an agreement with Morocco, the purpose of which is to take advantage of the natural resources of the western Sahara. Money blinds European eyes so that they do not see the Moroccan occupation.

The Europeans also do not see the Turkish occupation in Cyprus, and sign with Turkey on thousands of agreements that do not relate to companies and bodies connected with this occupation that began in 1974. Only the Israeli “occupation” in Judea and Samaria, the historical homeland of the Jewish People, bothers the Europeans. They have forgotten that the people of Israel lived in Judea and Samaria when the forefathers of the Europeans were wandering westward from the wilderness of Asia and seized the European continent from its residents.

But the Geneva agreement brings Western hypocrisy to a new extreme: despite the fact that the experience of the Second World War still lives in historical memory, despite the fact that the entire world knows that submission to a dictator causes him to raise  his demands and will not satiate his lust for power, despite the fact that “peace in our time” when it is based on concessions to a bloodthirsty tyrant brings “war in our time”, despite the fact that the West says that it is guided by its values, the bitter truth must be said: the right of the Iranians to free themselves of the oppressive regime does not really matter to any of the politicians who are responsible for decision-making in the West today, and the Jews’ right to live in the land of their forefathers also does not interest them. Money is the answer to everything and to Hell with truth and values.

    Concise and accurate!

  2. Absolutely perfect…

  3. Kjeld Hesselmann says:

    The Western countries still cannot fathom the inner core of a fascist mind. Despite of deadly encounters with Nazism, Communism and Imperial Shinto-Fascism the actual U.S. politicians behave just like the hapless Chamberlain in the 1930thies: Peace in our time!

  4. A lot of wisdom in this article….

  5. Bill Russell says:

    mossad where are you

  6. Why trust Europeans who murdered six million Jews and did nothing to save them except few brave righteous ones we honor.

  7. Sandra Heer says:

    Another voice that needs to be heard.

  8. it’s an absolute shame. I stand with Israel forever. <3

  9. The Ayatollahs need bringing down, if the US had any guts they would have had the current admin picked off a few at a time and gotten very tough with Iran. 80 million under oppression is a high number in human terms.

  10. Eva I am of the same persuasion as you and frankly harking back to WWII on the issue of Iran is irrelevant. Not all Iranians want to be ruled by Mullahs in fact I know of one Iranian marrying a Jewish girl. The current European bunch in on the Iranian deal were born after '67 and '73. Hague is a complete ponce, Ashton is a dumb pen pusher who likes to be seen hugging Kerry who himself is as thick as two short planks and as for Obama what can I say.

  11. Yes MOSSAD come on let's have a few assassinations and get Iran back to where she was in '79 before Islamist great unwashed were kept in their place until they got an education and learned how to participate in civilized society. How old does one have to be to be a hired gun! I'd gladly offer my services!

  12. We hope that the US Congress has the guts not to accept the agrrement with Iran and increase the sanctions to Iran.
    Big mouth Netanyahu is a fake, a fraude, a lier, the worst Israel's leader, he lost the opportunity to strike Iran in 2009 after the fraudalent "elections" and so have freed the iranians, but the submited servant Netanyahu from ayatollah Obama he didn't strike Iran, it is really a shame that Israel has such leader.
    The western countries wants a free Iran becouse they are afraid to have more market competence, but is a shame, specially Europe didn't never change still the same idiots.

  13. If they couldn't reason with Hitler, how do they think they'll reason with Hitler 2.0? Hitler with a nuclear missile and jihadist/martyr mentality. Hitler swallowed a pill when he knew his ambitions were over. Hitler 2.0 will drop a few bombs and take as many with him as possible.

    The west is in moral decline true. So what will Israel do- will she become the light unto the nations, or will she become a protectorate of US as Obama desires?

  15. Anonymous says:

    Israel is not gonna do a damned thing, a protectorate of US ? Hahahahahahahaha, DREAM ON !!
