Making sense of what is happening in Iran

UNSEC 1674: RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT POPULATIONS FROM GENOCIDE & CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY…

WHAT IS GENOCIDE?

The 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide:

Any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group as such:

•    killing members of the group;
•    causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
•    deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
•    imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
•    [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group
The 30 years and continuous acts of genocide in Iran:
Past 30 years, the Islamic regime of Iran has killed huge number of our people, those who by the regime’s standards are not “Muslim” and not part of the close group of authorities defined as the “most trusted.” Although we understand that the religion as Islam is not the issue, however the perception of this regime to force people to accept this religion is what should be focused on.
A vast number of Iranian dissidents have during past 30 years perished, killed, seriously harmed due to barbaric punishments such as bodily mutilations, and psychological attacks on people’s whole being.  This regime has forcibly moved children from families who were called “monafeghin” and transferred to families of Islamic background.  These children, whose parents were killed, hanged, executed, and / or jailed in a longer time, were moved from families to be raised as a true “Muslim.”

Gregory Stanton’s “8 Steps to Genocide”
•    Classification of them and us
•    Symbolization for propaganda
•    Dehumanization
•    Organization of genocidal groups
•    Polarization to get killers ready
•    Preparation, including separation of victims
•    Extermination
•    Denial

Islamic regime of Iran has deliberately, gradually, plan-fully, and by ideology has classified our Iranian nation as “those” who are non Muslims and not trusted, in oppose to “us” who are the authorities and those in power.  This regime has for 30 years committed crimes against all those who were considered to be “secular” and therefore “non-Muslim.” This wide spread and large group of individuals includes minorities, ethical groups, and women in particular.

At this point the level of hatred and animosity by the current regime of Iran against women is known to the world.  It is significant to view the general actions towards gender apartheid and the mass killing of people who are supposedly polarized in the Iranian society.  Basiji’s killing our women is due to the level of training to target those women who are not alike what this regime wants women to be; suppressed.  According to UN definition we can find numerous examples of public punishments and killings of men and women who were not part of regime’s circle of “trust.” Therefore what is going on in Iran is a systematic, continuous, and planned act of genocide against a nation who fights for their rights as being human.
Dehumanization of individuals belonging to various school of thoughts, political groups, or social class has all occurred in a well-organized, publicized, ongoing and legalized action by this regime for past 30 years.
While this regime, its leaders, and most of its authorities have been feeding, organizing, and training militia groups, they have knowingly done so in order to kill, silent, and destroy individuals, families, and communities who are in their mind non-Muslim.

The threat of having killers out there on the streets and the act of unleashing these militia who crack down people have been one constant and static part of this regime.
In an enormous of cases the militia or morality police on the streets have stopped couples, separated women from their partners, killed and raped women, and never been accountable for anything.
These women who have been killed, tortured, arrested, jailed, raped, and punished, have all belong to the secular group of civilians. The regime of “Islam” in Iran has one main goal and that is about exterminating all those who are not alike them: the secular groups nationwide.
Denial is one big issue that regime has always had, never admitted to any crime, never accepted any role in killing, horrifying, and destroying large groups of our nation.
ACCORDING to THE UN DEFINITION ABOVE AND ALL OTHER EXISTING DOCUMENTS THAT UN GENERALS AGREE UPON, HOW CAN WE SAY WHAT IS HAPPENING IN IRAN IS NOT A GENOCIDE?
PLEASE ANSWER THIS ONE QUESTION: HOW YOU CAN JUSTIFY THE MASS KILLING OF OUR IRANIAN PEOPLE BY A REGIME WHO DOES CLASSIFY PEOPLE AS IT’S ENEMY?
OUR IRANIAN PEOPLE NEED HELP, NOW OR THE WEST WILL HAVE ANOTHER RWANDA UNFOLDING IN IRAN.

After making a comparison between the United Nations own definition of Genocide and the reality of events in Iran, we have no other way than wondering why the 30 years of people’s suffering has not been recognized as an act of genocide?
