Long live the great Iranian nation,
The 1979 revolution was meant to achieve freedom, independence, justice and progress. However, from its very onset, it deviated from these goals in favor of an Islamic Republic. The mullahs ruling Iran used religion and the system of Velayat-e faqih to impose violent tyrannical rule. In the past 35 years, destruction, poverty, corruption, billion dollar embezzlements, addiction, and divorce have been rampant in Iran. The mullahs’ rule supports fundamentalism, suppression, executions and torture of the Iranian people. The situation has reached a tipping point with the poverty, unemployment, censorship, undue inquisition, and further systematic violation of human rights and all social and educational foundations; we are witnessing extreme damage to our moral values.
