Negotiate with Iranian Regime? What Iranian Citizens Have to Say

There has been a dialogue created between Iranian citizens and American citizens through the statement iCaucus put out in February of this year.  The following information is from the Vice-President of iCaucus - Mitzi Fortune and we wanted to show how the dialogue between the citizens of both countries has increased over time.  iCaucus has received many emails, messages, and phone calls from all over the world and not just from Iranians, but from many other citizens as well.  They have found an outlet to discuss many world issues including the continuing issues of armed conflict and the way the world is now viewing Americans based upon what our leadership does. 

Information from Mitzi Fortune:

Over the last four months I have received phone calls from Iranian men and women calling from the United States, England, France, Iran, and Dubai.  The first few months the calls were to say thank you for recognizing the wrong done to the Iranian people in 1979 and telling the truth about how the current Islamic regime was allowed by the British and US governments to remove the Shah from power and establish their tyrannical rule. The more recent calls have been from Iranian women thanking us for speaking out on the human rights violations against the Iranian people by the mullahs and their sympathizers who are in power.  Every woman mentioned the horrible treatment of the Iranian women and that we should “never, never, never negotiate with the Islamic regime” in Iran. These women spoke very broken English so at times it was hard to understand all they said. The most heart-breaking one to hear was the call I received at 3:05 PM PDT on July 22.  The Iranian woman who called told me she was in Dubai and calling because she couldn’t call from Tehran.  She thanked me for exposing the tyranny her people are living under; she said she has no rights and is at the mercy of her husband and the other men.  She said the Europeans keep sending money to Iran “for the people” but it all goes to the mullahs, who control everything.  I told her we understand because our government also sends money to Iran that the mullahs receive.  She said the real Iranian people love Americans and want to have the freedoms back that Americans enjoy.  She also said the regime is putting young people in prison and then executing them.  After the call was over I checked what time it was in Dubai:  2:14 AM!  This woman had to call in the middle of the night so her husband wouldn’t hear her calling.

Information from President of iCaucus:

iCaucus has received messages, emails, and phone calls from citizens of countries such as Afghanistan, Ukraine, Uganda, and many more. Much of the information has been to give us information from their perspective including Human Rights violations by tyrannical regimes around the world and the fact our government should never be negotiating with them.  They have asked if Americans all feel the same way as our representative government appears to. They want to know why we just want to destroy countries not thinking about the citizens of those countries who may not feel the way their regimes do.  The stories they share about what is happening to the citizens of these countries are horrendous and heartbreaking. From women being raped, tortured and mudered to young people being hooked on drugs by their government, then arrested, tortured, and executed.  Persecution for speaking out or protesting.  They ask why we are now ignoring the world.  They all believe the American citizens are basically good people, but don't always understand the amount of propaganda Americans receive from their media.  Nor do they understand that taxpayer funded programs like Voice of America are not abiding by law when they espouse anti-American ideals or have anti-American programming.  At what point do we as Americans begin to stand, not to interfere in these other countries, but to stop what our own government is doing?

The viewpoint of Iranian citizens regarding negotiating with the Iranian regime is just one example and it should actually be a warning. If the Iranian citizens are telling us we should never negotiate with them, then all the propaganda regarding the sanctions hurting the citizens, seems as if it is not true.  Don't trust us, talk to some of them if you know any and they will all tell you the same thing.

    For 35 years now our government has done nothing to create th down fall of the regime in Iran. Why?
    Does it matter when Iran kidnaps American citizens and the White House doesn’t care?

    Since this article posted one call I received was from an Iranian woman who, with her daughter, escaped “the mullahs” (her words) and are now living in Turkey." Do you know word mullah? Mullah made in England" (her words). She said Americans should not negotiate with the mullahs, because the mullahs and Hezbollah are controlling Iran; the “true Iranians love Americans …. hate England” (her words again) because “Islam made in England” (her words).
    These people (both men and women) who are calling from around the world want the truth heard. They have been very clear on separating the true Iranian people from the mullah/Hezbollah terrorists controlling their homeland (who are the ones our media has shown with signs saying DEATH to AMERICA and cheering after 9/11). This woman in Turkey told me she didn’t have much money and doesn’t call her Iranian friends because of the cost of the calls; yet she made 2 calls to the United States to tell us her story and to thank us for the Truth about the Iranian people finally being told.

    Dara, you make some good points. I agree that the US should not negotiate with terrorists or those that ignore human rights. The problem is, the elites have a different agenda. They don’t really give a crap about anybody there, or the citizens here. They will do what benefits THEM the best. We need to take our country back. Yes, it is like herding cats trying to get “constitutionalists” moving in the right direction. But when a common cause comes up, many do get active. I’ve met a lot of patriots of all different views at some of the overpass protests and other rallies. We usually agree on certain core elements such as: Limited government, whose sole purpose is to protect individual rights. A free market, with only minimal governmental regulation. And civil liberties, as defined by our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. (There are, of course, a million ways to interpret these principals.)
    The bottom line is, we have strayed a very long way from where our founding documents intended us to be, to the advantage of the elites. This must be corrected.

    I believe the point of the article was how the U.S. shouldn’t be negotiating with any of these governments that violate basic human rights. I don’t believe it had anything to do with doing anything for those citizens right now. Tell me, how can we change a country like ours back to what it should be when basic things are misunderstood and no one can get on the same page? Seems to me, “Constitutionalists” can’t even get on the same page long enough to effect change. Nor can they seem to understand how some of these other issues actually affect what is happening here.

    You got it right and thank you for making that point. There are some many here that complain and ask the US to stand up and fight , but don’t ever show up to vote or are not even registered to vote. The fight start here and we better get it together soon or we will loose it all. And if that happens as one once said “You haven’t seen nothing yet!”

    I certainly sympathize with the Iranian citizens. It’s unfortunate that they are ruled by an evil dictatorship under the guise of Islam. However, we can do little to help Iran, (or any of the other countries in bondage) until we restore a constitutional republic to our own country. We must first take our country back from the socialist/fascists, the we can make some progress elsewhere in the world.

    Just 35 years ago Jimmy Carter throw out the Shah of Iran and Jimmy BOY gave us the biggest TERRORIST organization the world has ever known. Just think Jimmy Carter is still walking this earth and he is covered in BLOOD!

    You’ve probably never heard of Anatoly Golitsyn, but in light of the developments in the Ukraine, you might want to look him up.

    Golitsyn is an ex-KGB officer who defected to the West back in 1961, in his own words to “warn the American Government about the adoption of the current grand strategy for Communism and the political role of the KGB and the use of disinformation and controlled political opposition which the strategy entailed, and…help the West neutralise KGB penetration of their governments.”

    Soviet propaganda reading: “Rise higher the banner of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin!” (Image Source:

    Golitsyn’s overarching thesis, the so-called “grand strategy,” is laid out in painstaking detail over two books: “New Lies for Old” (1984) and “The Perestroika Deception” (1985), which can be summarized as follows:

    The Soviets developed a long-range strategy to defeat the West back in the late 1950s based on a Leninist strategy of strategic deception and subterfuge, replete with a planned collapse — including potentially tearing down the Berlin Wall (which Golitsyn first detailed in a 1978 memorandum embedded at the end of this post) – in combination with perestroika and glasnost, words whose true definitions were far different than those the West ascribed to them.

    These moves according to Golitsyn were designed to invite the West’s capital, technology and most of all gullibility/trust to Russia, which it could then use to build itself up, and, while the West moved leftward and intertwined itself inextricably with Russia and other socialist states, “converge” and dominate the West under a world government headed by none other than the Russians and Chinese.

    I provided the above information on Golitsyn so you have the knowledge of past history and how the Soviets developed the “Disinformation Campaign” for over 20 years going as far back as 1955 through 1980’s.

    Thus you see the results with the way the “News Media”, “Government” run agency’s sends out “Disinformation” to it’s citizens and thus shads the news to their side and not reporting the “Facts” as they truly have taken place at given events. “Long Range Strategy” is the key objective and is being played out throughout the West, Latin America, Middle East, and Europe.

    You have not been told that every 10 minutes a person is put to death in Iran by the Regime. More and more the young in Iran are being killed by these Mullahs and the Elite Revolutionary Guard. Women that don’t wear the proper dress code are approached by Elite Revolutionary Women Guards who hold razer blades in there fingers and run them across the woman’s face who is nor properly dressed to the government standard, leaving the woman marked for live.
