Letter Gives a Very Different Image of The Islamic Republic

If we purport to want to work towards peace, it is so important that we let go of our learned notions from the history we were taught that never existed as we were told, and from the barrage of propaganda and lies from western government-controlled media in today’s world. In addition to the leaders of Iran saying over and over that their nuclear program was only for peaceful purposed and that it was against their entire belief system to even think of using nuclear weapons for destruction, the anti-Iran rhetoric went on and on…as is the case whenever another country does not comply with the wishes of the US/Israel partnership…think Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and many others on most continents. From this letter written by the Ayatollah Khamenei to the youth of the West comes a very different image of one of the faces of Iranian leadership than has been portrayed to us…an understanding beyond any leaders of western nations of the depth of our violent society and the damage and destruction it causes and how without changing that pervasive aspect of our culture, nothing will get better on this planet that we all share. I implore you to take the time to read this letter filled with real understanding and compassion…and make no mistake, it is our western governments all through time tin the name of building empires that has been the root cause of most of the miseries of this world and it is our economic hitmen and mercenaries that have travelled the world in order to exploit and create the conditions leading to terrorism whether by instigating, arming, funding directly or by eliciting a fury after leaving brutality and death and destruction in their wake…either way it is all on us and the silence must end.
