Truth from an Iranian by Iranian Erica Kasraie
One might wonder why such an authentic viewpoint would never be aired on the MSM networks, and it would be a good use of contemplative time in my estimation.
Note from Steve:
Why do we post something so politically touchy and disputed? Because we celebrate the assassination of a government official? Not at all.
Would I have advocated assassination beforehand? Certainly not. Do I condone it afterwards. No, I don’t.
It’s a regrettable event, wherever it happens. And a dangerous precedent that puts President Trump himself potentially in the crosshairs. But it’s been done and I can’t change that.
What struck me in listening to Erica Kasraie’s account is how I’ve never heard her perspective in the media before – neither mainstream nor alternative.
She sounds entirely credible to me. If she is, then she’s shown me how little I really know about Iran and the Middle East.
If the world knew that ordinary Iranians did not mourn the passing of Gen. Suleimani, there would be less support for those who wish a war with Iran (whoever they are). There’d be more appreciation for the silent oppression of the Iranian people.
As a former refugee adjudicator, I know about the Basiji, Evin Prison, and what happens to people who protest the regime. But what the Iranian people might be thinking can only come from an Iranian – and at great personal and family risk.
I’d say hearing this version of events has been a red pill for me. I see that I’m not being informed about Iran’s true state of affairs by the sources I read. Thank you, Erica, for showing me that.
