I have lost my respect for Akbar Ganji, the Iranian dissident who came out of mullahs' prison as the so-called hero of the Iranian democracy movement but turned out to be as much anti-America, anti-Bush as his colleagues in the Iranian regime. I lost my respect for him when he met with Noam Chomsky, criticized Israel and asked the leftists Iranians not to cooperate with the monarchsists and supporters of crown prince Reza Pahlavi to overthrow the regime. He actually disappointed many many Iranians who thought this man is a hero in the struggle against the mad mullahs of their occupied country.
Any how, he is flip-flopping again, like any other islamists, and he writes a letter to the Americans asking them to have a dialogue with the criminal mullahs.
The letter can be read at Washington Post web page.
