In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

The brutal attack of the Zionist regime on the ships carrying food, clothing and other necessities for the oppressed people of Palestine was a disaster that shows that this regime does not abide to even the most elementary principles of humanity and ethics, and only follows the logic of force and oppression. They have attacked these ships despite being aware that they were carrying products that could only be used to save and provide the most basic necessities for a oppressed and innocent people and where donated by people who had no intentions other than humanity [charity].

I hereby condemn this inhumane act that is against all standards and principles of humanity accepted by the collective wisdom of the people of the world , and urgently plead to all those who seek freedom to clearly stand against this wrong and tyrannical action and condemn and expose the Zionist regime and defend the oppressed people of Palestine and particularly Gaza through serious action.

In the name of God

“Now such were their houses, – in utter ruin, – because they practised wrong-doing” Quran 27:52 [1]

The attack of the occupying Zionist regime on the ships carrying humanitarian aid for the defenseless and oppressed people of Gaza that resulted in some altruist human beings being killed and injured has caused great sorrow.
Hereby, I condemn this brutal and inhumane act and ask all freedom-loving people, international and human rights organizations, and governments to do all they can to fulfill their role in condemning and bringing to justice those who ordered and carried out these attacks. All nations should pressure their governments into putting this inhumane regime into political and economical isolation. Everyone should know that this regime is not only a danger to the people of Palestine, the Islam, and the Muslims’ first prayer direction [Qiblah], but it is a danger to all humanity and one of the manifestations of corruption on earth. Thus, since confidence in such issues [spreading corruption] – and even with the possibility of such an issue- hiding true beliefs [taqiyyah] and considering political interests by those in power is prohibited [and haraam] and it is upon us to stand against it with all possible means. All those who struggle for this cause are “struggling in the path of God” [Mujahidin Fi Sabil Allah] and those killed are highly revered martyrs and true instances of those who “are sustained by their lord ” [2].

Mahdi Karoubi: Complete Statement for the Anniversary of the Birth of the Green Movement

June 20, 2010

The vote they stole from you and the rights that they took from you unjustly are a shameful stain that cannot be hidden with whatever colour it is painted over. This is so much the case that after one year, despite all the pressures and intimidation, not only have your rightful demands not been forgotten, but this desire for change has taken deep root in different layers of society, based on an extensive social network.
