"Iranian Dissident to Seek Support For Opposition" is the title of the today's NY Sun piece written by the only American journalist supporting freedom in Iran a.k.a Eli Lake.
- Less than 24 hours after one of Iran's leading dissidents and authors escaped to a neighboring state, the former chairman of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board, Richard Perle, interrupted his trip to central Asia to meet with him in a cramped hotel room.
- "There have been some contacts with some Democratic senators. There are people in our organization that are talking to them to organize," Mr. Fakhravar said. "But most of the support is coming from the Republicans, Mr. Perle, and his friends. We have the interest of the Iranian people. We want to achieve freedom at any costs. We will take help from wherever we can get it to reduce the costs of obtaining our freedom."
Amir Abbas Fakhravar has fled Iran and is now heading to Washington D.C to start a new campaign against the Islamic regime of Iran.
This is almost the best news I have heard so far about the Iranian students movement and indeed, people like Amir Fakhravar are among a few true Iranians who do understand the realities of the world and unlike stupid leftist (Tudehii) Iranians who hate the freedom and love the Mullahs, these few courageous students care about Iran and its people very much.

You know, if Iran will become a free and democratic nation in future, these few people risking their lives to see it happening, will always be remembered as heroes and nobel individuals, if you will.
I hope their plans work and they get what they wish for. Iranians deserve to be free and prosperous.
