God's open letter to Iraninans

From Shahrzad's persian blog :

Honestly, I'm sick and tired of listening to you people whine. You fail to recognize how busy I am. I put in 24-hour days, every fickle day. I have to oversee the operation of all existence. I have to manage the relationship between time and space. I am busy maintaining solar systems, black holes, comets, asteroids, planets, the milky-way, blah blah blah...It's not bad enough that I have to prevent your shitty little planet from smashing into Neptune or getting sucked into the sun, I have to constantly listen to you people bitch.

What do you want from me? What else could I possibly give you Iranians?

I picked the best prime real estate on Earth and handed it to you. I gave you beautiful vacation spots in the north of the country, magnificent mountains in the west, an exquisite desert in the east and a perfect passage to oceans in the south. I gave you ravishing lands, clean air,
lushes trees, fruitful soil, and roaring rivers. I gave you riches that were the envy of humanity. I gave you resources others would kill for.
What did you do with it? Nothing. You sat on your lazy asses and let it all go down the drain. I put an ocean of oil underneath you to power the world. But you people were so inarticulate, you didn't even appreciate it.
Others came and plundered it. I made you smart, creative, and innovative. Did you ever use your brains? Hell no! You just let it all go to waste. And those among you who did use your brains were immediately shunned or eliminated by your own compatriots. You bought used, wasted, consumed, purchased, drained, exhausted natural resources and contributed nothing in return. While I watched other nations create, invent, change, produce, discover, contrive, you people went through life clueless. Oh, and another thing: I'm tired of listening to you people blame all your deficiencies on other nations. They took your oil? Tough shit-- you didn't deserve it.
They took your lands? Big deal-- what good did you do with it anyway? They stole your resources? Oooh, it breaks my heart. I have had my eyes on you in last 3000 years and I have not seen people as lazy, cunning, lying, cheating, and ass kissing as you. You're most unkind to your own kind. You always chose the easy way out, minimum pain, maximum gain. What did you do with those brilliant poets, artists, scientists, thinkers, and savants who appeared among you? You managed to push them under the water to avoid feeling inadequate. Well, this might come as a shock to you, but it doesn't work like that. You see, I created humans to be productive not to
sit around and watch life go by. Others achieved, you didn't. End of story. So from the Office of the Chairman of the Board of Existence to the citizens of Iran, read my lips: Please quit whining. I have a universe to run and there is nothing else I can do for you.

Ciao baby!
Your creator,
G. Al Mighty

I'm also tired, but about those people that describe a nation with 70 million of habitants, with only negatives stereotypes. I'm not iranian, but I have friends and I know the country, and the diversity of iranien people, is one of the beauty of that country.

my kind regards for those iranien people that work hardly everyday. I wish you the best for now and future ...

"We have the gift of an inner liberty so far-reaching
that we can choose either to accept or reject the God
who gave it to us, and it would seem to follow that the
Author of a liberty so radical wills that we should be
equally free in our relationships with other men.
Spiritual liberty logically demands conditions of outer
and social freedom for its completion." Edmund A. Opitz

Human is earth's Choicemaker. His title describes
his definitive and typifying characteristic. Recall
that his other features are but vehicles of experi-
ence intent on the development of perceptive
awareness and the following acts of decision and
choice. Note that the products of man cannot define
him for they are the fruit of the discerning choice-
making process and include the cognition of self,
the utility of experience, the development of value-
measuring systems and language, and the accultur-
ation of civilization.

The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits,
customs, and traditions, are the creative harvest of
his perceptive and selective powers. Creativity, the
creative process, is a choice-making process. His
articles, constructs, and commodities, however
marvelous to behold, deserve neither awe nor idol-
atry, for man, not his contrivance, is earth's own
highest expression of the creative process.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and
significant act of choosing is, itself, the Archimedean
fulcrum upon which man levers and redirects the
forces of cause and effect to an elected level of qual-
ity and diversity. Further, it orients him toward a
natural environmental opportunity, freedom, and
bestows earth's title, The Choicemaker, on his
singular and plural brow.

Its good to know that even those of you who don't live in Iran are not as ignorant as I have seen in some of these blogs. There are a lot of people here who are hard working and have nothing to do with this conflict. People seem to forget that there should be a seperation between society and their government. It does make sense. Life is to short. Look at Israel and Lebanon...what are they accomplishing? Nothing... I am not saying that one side is right or wrong. It is quite frustrating when you know people in both countries and there is nothing you can do. Myself, I am in Iran. And there is a chance our leader may decipher along with our Supreme Leader that we have to get involved "since enough of our muslim brothers have shed their blood in vain"...but that does not mean this is the consensus of the entire nation. People just want to be able to live their lives...go to work...come home and be with friends and family. What most people don't understand is those of us in Iran have to filter what we say. Our opinions are kept to ourselves, since the consequences can be quite dire. This is known fact. If someone decides to stand up against the government...they are asking for a death sentence. Bottom line is Iran is a great country. Many people feel for people in Lebanon as well as Israel, but truth be told Israel has been bombing Lebanon at a rate which is not human. I don't see what is the point of bombing a Christian village which has nothing to do with Hezbollah. The western governments have really underestimated how severe this conflict has become. Egypt, Iran, Syria who are not even involved are furious about this situation. This could just be the next WWIII. Is this what what we as humanity want? I beg to differ. People have to stop marginalizing and start asking questions from those of us who are in the middle east. I for example am of mix heritage US/Iranian, so I feel torn between both of my countries. Iran is a great country and I'm sure so is Lebanon and Syria and especially their people. People come first...then politics should procede. If anymore people die this is going to go down in history. This is not like a suicide bombing in Iraq or Israel. On top of that, there is talk of cival war in Iraq. People need to educate themselves. This is crutial. With out doing so, we are going to be at a stalemate until something even more dire occurs. I for sure don't want to stand around and wait for that. But I have loved ones out here in this regieon and its much easier said than done. So next time you want to bash a middle eastern: please keep one thing in mind. Half of us don't know what the heck is going on with the politics in our countries. Most of the time we find the news from satelites. If you don't believe me read other blogs through out here and you will see that I have a point to what I am trying to get at.

I would love to see what people have to say regarding my thoughts pertaining to my blog.

I am very interested in the opinions of those both Iranian and of other nationalities. I really would like to address and answer questions. There is nothing worse than ignorance. So if I can clarify something for you or someone else here in the middle east...then please by all means just ask. Just remember that the freedoms of the west pertaining to articulating your personal thoughts can and may have repercussions, which is why some of us are hessitant both for our own sake and for those in our family who are not able to escape. Please keep that in mind as well
