Love is blind and hate blinds, this is the prism through which some Iranians living in democratic countries view Iran peoples’ struggle for emancipation and democracy.

There was a time when preoccupation was Shah hating, and Khomeini loving all the rage, with Iran an afterthought. Since then, this loving and hating mantality has preoccupied many who continue to put Iran in the context of their feelings for this person or the other.

Nowadays, Iran and her people, her beleaguered and desperately seeking freedom people, are again an afterthought within the context of Trump hating rage and Obama loving.

Lets hope time will come when Iran loving becomes all the rage, hating this and loving the other only an afterthought.

Airtight sanctions, a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
