Persians Speak

A group of Persian intellectuals in the country and in exile have published an open letter taking the Tehran regime to task for its disgusting conference on the Jewish Holocaust. It's an encouraging read. Money quote:

Forgotten amongst all the sensationalism in the Iranian media accompanying the conference, was the bitter reality that the undermining or denial of human suffering for the sake of making political points – whatever they might be – will inevitably lead to moral degeneration: a moral degeneration that makes any judgment on the wrongfulness of the murder of the innocent dependent upon its political reverberations; a moral degeneration where by questioning the number of the victims, it fails to realize that "whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind".

Underneath the poisonous regime, there is hope in Persia.
