Hi I'm Iranian and I watch this show
This guy's show isn't aimed to "mock" Islam. He is a scholar of history. He reads historical sources about the Arab invasion of Persia and the atrocities that they caused from the original Arabic books. The mullahs in Iran for centuries have censored these sources and told us that Iranian accepted Islam with open arms. He tells it the way it really happened. He also translates the Quran and asks things like "what kind of God would order his followers to cut off the arm and leg of those who disagree with him from opposite sides"? (this is in Surah Al-Maeda from the Quran but I forget the Aya). This is just one example. There are thousands of other things like this in the Quran and he is going through the entire Quran from start to finish. Right now he is half-way through. He also shows videotapes of Islamic executions, stonings, amputations, and beheadings to show the real face of Islam. It is very chilling. He once read a paragraph from an Islamic source about how the Muslim army beheaded 17,000 Iranians from the city of Rey (near modern-day Tehran), 35,000 from the city of Shooshtar (in the province of Khuzestan), 12,000 from this city, 40,000 from that city, 20,000 people from that city and then right after it he showed a beheading videotape. I didn't have the stomach to watch but he looked like he was going to throw up right after it. He shows one beheading videotape everyday. Sometime he shows taking out people's eyes and amputating limbs and stonings. But the work he does is scholarly work and not like either "The Life of Brian" or "Piss Christ". He is a great champion and has even said that he is willing to die for telling the truth.
I don't know if you guy know this or not, but over a span of 26 years the Islamic regime has killed more than one hundred dissident Iranians across Europe with more or less immunity from European governments. The first victim was the nephew of the exiled Shah in France and the latest ones were 5 Kurdish leaders that were slain in Germnay. The European governments did absolutely nothing. Fouladvand had started this TV station 4 years ago but the British government stopped him from broadcasting. So now he broadcasts via the internet to a studio in North America and from there it feeds it to a satellite channel. I don't know what is wrong with Europe but it appears that they really really like these murdering mullahs.
But Fouladvand is not just another TV presenter. He has started a movement for overthrowing the Islamic regime and this TV station is a way of giving and getting information to and from Iran. I don't much about how they plan to overthrow the regime because obviously they are being secretive and don't want the regime to know their plans. A major problem is that not everyone has a satellite and knows about this show and this movement. But he has become very popular despite all odds. If any country is ready for leaving Islam, it is Iran. I mean lets face it. If this program was broadcasted in any other language this station would be bombarded with angry hatemail and hate phone calls about how you are insulting our religion and our prophet and you should be killed. But people call him left and right and thank him for saying what was in their minds all along but they didn't have the guts to come out and talk about it in public. The only ones who seems to be angry are mullahs such as Shariatmadari and his ilk. Plus people watch him despite the fact that his internet broadcast has very very very low quality and gets cut off every two minutes and there are a lot more interesting TV stations showing the latest fashion and music. Who wants to hear 24 hours of Islamic doom and gloom about beheadings and stonings when you can watch movies and listen to music? But people do.
The regime is not sitting by and watching. Besides going to desperate measures to find out where he lives so they can kill him, they have also started spreading wild rumours about him like he slept with this or that person from his own family or that he stole large sums of money or that he is an illiterate nobody who doesn't really have a Ph. D. A classic case of character assassination which seems to have backfired and made him more popular. Even if the mullahs kill him, there are videotapes of his program being passed around from person to person which have the same effect as if he were alive. People pay money to buy CDs of his show. What needed to be said was already said. The damage to Islam has been done. They can't reverse it even if they kill Fouladvand. That would only make a martyr out of him and make him even more legendary and popuar (which Muslims are very fond of but only when it benefits them).
What makes this show great is that this guy doesn't say anything from history until he shows the evidence for it. The overwhelming majority of Iranians do not understand Arabic and the mullahs have been able to plagarize history books in order to hide the atrocities that our ancestors suffered after the Isalmic invasion of our homeland. But the Arabic sources proudly talk about their bloody conquests and how many people where and when they beheaded and how many Iranians they took with them back to Arabia and sold as slaves! Everything he reads is from the original source and he translates it from the original Arabic into Persian right there. He even holds up the pages up to the screen and shows it so that people know he isn't making any of it up.
One very important point that I forgot to mention is that a few weeks ago this channel showed a few secret documents sent to them by dissidents working within the regime from a few years back. One was about how the regime spent 5.7 million dollars three years ago to buy the silence of various opposition groups in Los Angeles. But the most important one was a document by a mullah named Hojjatol eslam Ali Akbar Nateq Nouri who is representative of the supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The document shows that the regime is not just aiding and abetting Al Qaeda but actually helping them carry out terrorist attacks (no surprise there since Islam and the Quran are the root of ancient and modern terrorism and Al Qaeda and Khomieni are just manifestations of it). The memo said that the regime's so-called Revolutionary Guards and elements of the Intelligence Ministry should "continue their cooperation with Al-Qaeda but must be careful so that the West doesn't find out of their relationship with Al-Qaeda beyond what they already know with Ayman Al-Zawahiri and Imad al-Din Muqniyah (meaning the West already knows of the mullahs relationship with these two al Qaeda leaders but not beyond this)". If you want to see the actual document go to http://www.anjomane-padeshahi.org/main.html and click on the second link from the right hand side on the top corner and then click on the first link from the top and then click on the first link from the top again. It shows this document as a jpg image. You can copy and paste the image although it's in Persian (well supposedly Persian but 95% of the words in this document are Arabic and it's hard even for me to understand... The mullah regime is very fond of the Arabic language). You can get anyone to translate it for you. Now why the West refuses to believe that the Shi'ite mullahs occuping our Iranian homeland are in fact a part of Al Qaeda is beyond me. Shi'ite, Sunni, Wahhabi, Salafi, etc what's the difference? They all believe in beheadings, amputations, plucking of eyes, and mass-murder. This document prooves it.
By the way, the cutting off hands and feet is in Surah Al Maeda, Aya 33 (or 5:33). It says: "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;". This is just one example, there are hundreds of other verses like this one. Please include this in my post too.
I also have a request from your readers. Anyone who thinks that common sense, basic decency and respect for your fellow human beings dictates that this guy is telling the truth should do everything in their power to support this movement. I know that this isn't your fight and we Iranians must fight to free our homeland ourselves and we will. But I don't want this guy to be killed or stopped and we must pressure the British government to change their unacceptable position and instead condemn the mullah Shariatmadari that issues these death sentences from half way around the world for a man who has done nothing but tell the truth. It's appaulling that the mullah that utters death threats isn't the one getting criticized but the man who talks about the history of Iran gets "strongly condemned" by the British government. There is a double standard when they say "people's beliefs should be respected". Which people's beliefs? Does the belief of Iranians that no longer want to be a slave of Islam get any respect? Or is this "respect" reversed for a few mullahs that have nothing better to do than utter death threats for people who live half way around the world? For God's sake, they are condemning the guy who talks about history but say nothing about the mullahs that threaten people with death! This guy is broadcasting for an Iranian audience via the internet and a US network is broadcasting him. It has nothing to with Britain. The British government can't control the internet. It's outrageous that they would "strongly condemn" an Iranian man for talking on the internet in Persian language to an Iranian audience. If they try to stop him for a second time then they are truly on the side of the terrorists and British nationals only have their own government to blame if they ever have a 9/11 attack (God forbid). Are there any British people reading this? Why does Britain want to keep these terrorist mullahs in power? They are cooperating with Al Qaeda for goodness sake! Do they want a 9/11 attack in their homeland? It is bound to happen somewhere in Europe if these mullahs stay in power. I think the British government should watch at least a week of this show before they "condemn" this guy. They would see that his aim is not to mock anything. He is putting his life in danger out of love for Iran. Would so many people love his show so much if he was mocking their beliefs? The only people that hate him are either mullahs such as Shariatmadari or their hezbollahi terrorist supporters. If there are British or European readers (even Australian, Japanese, Chinese, American, Canadian, etc), I think you should write to the British government and remind them that it's not right to comdemn a person for speaking the turth but remain silent about killers that utter even more death threats in order to keep the truth hidden for a while longer.
I apologize for making it so long. But I think everything I said was important. Thank you for reading my post.
