Voices of Iran: Joe Liska “I hold the Iranian Government responsible”

“I hold the Iranian Government responsible for the gross human right’s violation’s including 1000 plus executions a year. I have been a blogger for four year’s and have seen Iranian people be tortured,killed,and the women be treated like a dog.The act of throwing acid in the face of a woman that won’t wear a veil is (terroristic in nature ). I strongly condemn the heavy missile attack on Camp Liberty and the attack on MEK members.I have to question the U.S Government making a (Nuclear Deal ) with a country that has a “Death to American’s day”, and a government that terrorizes their people.The Iranian people are in a state of extreme fear and distress all the time and are afraid to speak out.Their prison’s are full of brave activist’s, christian’s,mother’s,father’s and a few American’s.

I often think of the story of Farinaz Khosravi, 26, a young girl who was a maid at a hotel in Mahabad.

Farinaz Khosravi, 26 years old, a young girl who was a maid at a hotel in Mahabad. She was working in a room when an Iranian agent attempted to sexually assault her.

She was working in a room when an Iranian agent attempted to sexually assault her. The young Farinaz had two options, (1) allow the assault to happen or (2) Jump four floor’s to her death.The young lady decided to try to jump and did not survive.On the following week demonstrators clashed with police after setting the hotel ablaze, throwing furniture from its rooms. Activists told the Kurdish ARA News that at least two protesters died and over 50 injured after Iranian riot police fired bullets at the crowd to disperse them.
Sharia Law
If Farinaz would have allowed the sexual assault to happen,she would have went to prison along with the suspect because neither of them were married (that’s if they believed her story).I have not heard of any arrest in this case as of today.

Blogger Satter Beheshti who was beaten to death in prison.

I think of blogger Satter Beheshti who was beaten to death in prison and his mother who went off on a rant ” In the street’s of Iran”.I wonder if she is still alive or did the Iranian government kill her?
Cyber police interrogator Akbar Taghizadeh was sentenced to three years in prison, two years in exile, and 74 lashes for the murder of dissident blogger Sattar Beheshti, who died under torture while in police detention in November 2012 ( I don’t call that justice).
I believe the U.S government should listen to the NCRI and MEK member’s. I believe they hold the key to their people’s destiny.”

October 29: Camp Liberty was targeted by 80 rockets

On Thursday, October 29, Camp Liberty was targeted by a barrage of 80 rockets of various kinds resulting in loss of life of 23 residents.

Maryam Rajavi vehemently condemned missile attack on Camp Liberty:

Maryam Rajavi strongly condemned the heavy missile attack this evening on Camp Liberty and declared: The government of Iraq and the United Nations who signed a Memorandum of Understanding and built a Temporary Transit Location (TTL) since 2011, are formally and legally accountable for this attack. In our view, however, as was the case in the six previous bloodbaths in Ashraf and Liberty, the Iranian regime’s agents in the government of Iraq are responsible for this attack and the United States and the United Nations are well aware of this fact.

Maryam Rajavi added: We had already warned about such an attack. Recently, too, 26 members of the US House of Representatives and 32 prominent political and military American personalities as well as 70 members of the French National Assembly warned the US, UN and the EU on their responsibility in this regard.

Several world leaders and politicians condemned the attacks on social media.

See the recap of the initial outcry of those disgusted by the attacks on Twitter here.
