می بخشيد كه دو سه روز آپديت نكردم، مشغول برگرداندن نوشته آقای نصيبی برای خوانندگان انگليسی زبان بودم

Tomorrow is too late

Open letter from Bassir Nassibi, Iranian filmmaker in exile,
To Shirin Ebadi, winner of the 2003 Nobel Prize


“This Nobel Prize in reality honors the Islamic Republic and an Islamic Iran. It is in the Islamic Republic that Mrs. Ebadi has worked. She showed that work could be done under this Islamic government; that progress will not be achieved with radical feminist slogans.â€

In connection with Amir Ebrahimi’s case you spent ten days in jail. Do we even have such 10-days-in-prison prisoners in the Islamic Republic? Even temporary arrests in the Islamic Republic sometime last several months. How were you treated while you were in prison? Were you tortured? Did they, you’ll excuse me, shove your head down the toilet hole as they did with Ahmad Batebi? Was the condition inside your prison similar to that of Zahra Kazemi’s prison or the women’s quarters in the dungeons of the Islamic Republic? Yes, I’m referring to the female section of Evin prison. I’m speaking of a place where very young girls were condemned to death for simply having distributed a single leaflet, where the guards, duty bound and serving Shiite Islam, raped them before execution (pardon me, “entered into a contract of temporary marriageâ€

I’ll relate to you, and to those who might still have illusions regarding your objectives, another example of the reaction of our younger generation to your claims. You and all Iranians know Sayeh Saidi Sirjani, but other individuals concerned with human rights issues around the world may not be familiar with her name. Sayeh is the daughter of Ali-Akbar Saidi Sirjani, the scholar, historian and prominent Iranian writer who after being fraudulently charged and arrested by the Islamic Republic underwent the most painful and barbaric forms of torture. They eventually injected him with a chemical and murdered him, closing his case with the announcement that he had suffered from a heart attack. Sayeh, herself a legal expert, without anyone paying attention to her cries, declared Mohammad Khatami and Hossein Shariatmadari, chief editor of Keyhan, to have been responsible for her father’s murder.

When you claimed to be admired by Iranian women and youth, Sayeh became furious and reacted to your claims sharply. Yes, her reaction was sharp and angry, but if I or anyone else were to feel the pain and suffering she holds in her bosom, and to comprehend the nightmare that should always be her companion, we ought not expect her to address the Islamic Republic’s defenders in a mild manner. Begging the pardon of the Grand Dame of Peace, I’ll quote a small excerpt from Sayeh Sirjani’s statement without altering her manner of address:

“Ebadi, shame on you for becoming more expert in fabricating lies than the officials of the Islamic Republic. May we be protected from the lust for power and doubly protected from your gaudiness. Today you’ve humored us again with the statement that the Islamic Republic has made vast progress in the area of the rights of women and children. Have you even seen the children of shantytowns? Do you know of the imprisoned youth? Of the young people who for years have suffered with material and spiritual poverty, non-existence of worthy professors and the absence of a free press? Woman, an Iranian child is an Iranian child, whether in the street, in shantytowns, in university or working as a peddler in the thriving Bazaars of the charlatans ruling Iran. You claim, ‘My reward was much welcomed by Iranian women and young people.’ Ebadi! I’m an Iranian woman. I’m a young Iranian. I say keep your prize…â€

[color=darkblue][size=117]My good friend Liberator,

I neither have your experience nor age and having red your elaborate posts, in this tread, I am touched by the animation of such reality through the mind’s-eye of an intellectual, compassionate, and fair minded.

But, as a true unjust victim of the Islamic Revolution who lived through descending phases of the contemptable revolution, I have much dimmer perspective of Iranian Masses than U do, as U advocated the autonomous rise of such Masses against tyranny, your last paragraph, “for our people to set themselves free, there is no alternative ...â€
