‘Ordinary Tehrani’ Praises Obama’s Response to the Uprising

The National Iranian American Council publishes.” this email, describing it as authored by an “ordinary Tehrani.”

Dear friend, if you have any contacts within the American Administration, please send them this message on behalf of us, ordinary Iranians in Iran (whose interests and concerns are very different from those of the exiled Iranians in the United States and in Europe who do not yet understand the mentality here and who have been cut off from the Iranian society for too long). Tell your contacts in the Administration that their point of view regarding Iran is by far the best position that an American Government has ever taken. We appreciate this and thank the President.

During the last two or three decades not one American president had “understood” Iran. All of them got caught in the traps of the mollahs, despite themselves having to play the bad cop .. but this time the intelligent president has decided not to join in their game, bravo.

It is normal that he is criticized vividly by most of the Los Angeles Iranians (and by most Republicans): since a long time they have been asking for just one thing : that America attack Iran and change the regime so that they get their possessions and their former jobs and privileges back, without wanting to know what today’s young Iranian wants here and now. It makes me think of the Cubans in Florida … they don’t consider the interests of their country but only what is due to them.

I hardly want to get involved in internecine Iran-diaspora disputes, and it’s a bit surprising to see an “ordinary Tehrani” concerned about internal American political arguments. Maybe it shouldn’t be, considering that we in the United States have no problem commenting on foreign countries’ internal politics. But still.

Anyhow, NIAC also notes the latest op-ed from Trita Parsi. Parsi told me last week that the Obama administration has to stay firmly “two steps behind” the opposition in its public rhetoric so as not to undermine it by mistake. Here it looks like the opposition’s expanding positions allow President Obama some further steps in the direction of condemning the regime:

But here is one legitimate criticism , the Iranians are missing two words from Obama: “I condemn.” Protesters and political leaders I’ve spoken to in Iran want the US to speak out forcefully against the government’s human rights abuses and condemn the violence. Philosophical formulations about respecting the wishes of the Iranian people aren’t enough: The president should clearly condemn the Iranian government’s violations and use of brutal force against its own people.

Parsi notes that “condemning violence is different from taking sides in Iran’s election dispute.”
