Daily Paul LOVES Iran

I've only become aware of this movement a few months ago doing some research on the ME.

A post made by Mr. Raceboy http://www.dailypaul.com/211563/beware-the-coming-israeli-fa... inspired me to share some YTs of this beautiful global movement of LOVE, from DP to Iran.







Love is the answer so follow your heart. Seek LOVE and you will find it even in and for Iran. I LOVE YOU IRAN!!

Iranians who love Israelis and

Israelis who love Iranians seen here and here. :)

School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me

Study nature, not books. -Walton F. Dutton

REMEMBER - Our tough talk on Iran has NOTHING to do with nukes.

It has to do with the fact that Iran doesn't play by world central bank rules and they don't trade their oil in PETRO-DOLLARS which are basically U.S. Dollars.

This is ONLY about U.S. Dollar hegemoney.

Unless Americans understand this, we are destined to have another Iraq in Iran.

It's just a matter of getting a republican NEO-CON in office to get it done.

O-BOMBA isn't much better but at at least he hasn't pulled the trigger yet - altho his sanctions are wrong enough on their own.

Our rotted, corrupt government thinks trying to talk, travel and trade with Iran is ISOLATIONISM ... while imposing sanctions on them and threatening war, war, war is NOT isolationism.

"SANCTIONS are an Act of War" -Ron Paul

It is the U.S. GOVERNMENT who has isolated Iran - NOT US THE CITIZENS.

Why is someone downvoting

Why is someone downvoting every single Granger post? Don't be a hater in a post about love, lol.


I knew it was base1ass...

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

I don't downvote Granger because 'she' is Granger.

I downvote everything that is BS with regard to the Truth and the Republic that was founded on it.

Why do you hate those that think so? ;)

I upvoted this.

Don't be a hater in a post about love, lol.

What an insignificant reply. It's so obvious.

The couldn't invade Syria ...

... so now the propaganda is heating up against Iran.

Everyone should know history that lead to the Iran Hostage Crisis, because that is what will be used to sway emotions ("Well, they took Americans HOSTAGE!")

The "Shah of Iran" was a so-called king but really a dictator. He was shah due to his daddy being shah. He was also a brutal dictator.

In 1951, the people of Iran overthrew the dictatorship and had a democratic election and they voted for Mosaddegh as prime minister.

He and the Iranian parliament nationalized the oil fields because the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company was getting Iraninan oil dirt cheap. That company later changed its name to British Petroleum, now known as BP (the Gulf oil spill guys).

The UK & US money guys did not like this nationalization, so the CIA conducted Operation Ajax to overthrow Mosaddegh and re-install the Shah.

That coup happened in 1953. Once again, the Shah was a brutal dictator.

By 1978, the people had enough and once again they overthrew him, this time in a religious revolution. The Shah fled to the US in 1979.

The new Iranian government demanded the extradition of the shah so he could stand trial for his crimes. Carter refused.

Iranians stormed the US embassy in Tehran, to exchange American hostages for the shah.

In 1980, the shah went to Egypt where he died (he is today buried in Egypt, not Iran, which should tell you something).

Once he was dead, the Iranian demands shifted to the return of the money he stole from the people.

An agreement was made and the hostages were released, but not until the day Reagan took office (a big f**k you to Carter).

So, it was the United States government, through the CIA and Carter, that made Iranians pissed at Americans.

They certainly don't "hate us for our freedom," as Bozo Bush would say.

I personally believe that

I personally believe that true and perfect love, the more we learn to understand "love the Lord your God with all your heart soul strength and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself", the more we enact love in the world through our gifts, the sooner the kingdom of God will arrive on earth. Greater love has no man than that a man lay down his life for his friends--Jesus did this--and freedom is an essential ingredient. Jesus sets sinners free from sin, not to return to hate from where we were, but to choose love, because he first loved us and showed us and shows us still, through the Spirit, how to love.

I don't have any particular

I don't have any particular love for Iran. It's very repressive toward it's own people is no where near free. I mean, we're not exactly free, but Iran is REALLY not free. That being said, we should avoid war with them. Beyond the foolishness of entangling alliances, we should avoid doing anything that shifts the balance of power in the region in the direction of the Saudies. The Saudies and Iranians keep each other at bay and Isreal is the wild card that beats back any one that gets a decicisve advantage. It's its own natual balance of power. Our involvement is unnessessary.

While I gave a RealPolitik analysis, I personally favor the Hayekian view on foriegn affairs.

I'm glad you brought this up

I appreciate your being open and honest about what, why, and how you love, displaying self respect and honor for defining your terms and having the guts to say how you really feel.

I find that the LOVE YOU movement is about people loving people because we understand it's not the people of Iran that curtail their freedom anymore than Americans saber rattling aginst Iran.

To me the movement is a call out, a shout out to PEOPLE: "I LOVE YOU!" because these wars are not between people, but between governments, which we have as much control over ours as they do theirs.

Love might be a stong word, but...

I definately feel for the people of countries like Iran. Even if a majority hated us, that's still not everyone. Besides, if the trend of America being less aligned with Saudi Arabia continues, I suspect that Iran will be less hostile toward us. Maybe someday soon we can even normalize trade. Trade is the great peacemaker. Nothing keeps people from killing each other more than the fear of losing the good life, lol.

I just believe that improving conditions internationally is the role of the individual and institutions, not the role of government. It can't be understated how effective new "institutions of liberty" like 3d gun printing, Bitcoin, and Bittorrent underminds statism, here and especially abroad. Organizations like students for liberty has helped spread the messege of liberty in a home grown way around the globe where the messege of liberty was previously non-existant. Even now, there's a very successful campaign in Saudi Arabia to get women's right to drive recognized by arguing that the prohibition violates Sharia Law. No American would have been able to come up with that because of cultural differences, but the route of incrementalism is slowly working over there.

In a post I made below

called "check this out", I have two links, one is about 5 minute YouTube of three fast food restaurants in Iran, and the other is "what tourists say".. look at Iran. Look at these people. See the eraser board with the menu in English? I feel they are doing fine, as well as us.. just for those who have had enough war, a shout out for ..

and yeah.. I made a top post about the Saudi women driving a few days ago http://www.dailypaul.com/303739/no-woman-no-drive

Count me in! I love Iran too and have no reason not to.

They are one of the few countries who don't get foreign aid money from us which is stolen money from our paychecks and re-distributed.

Besides, we did a lot of dirty things to Iran in the 1950's and I believe we owe them a HUGE apology.

I was a computer person, I would ask everyone who wanted to participate in sending Iran some LOVE, to send a picture or a YouTube clip of 3 seconds, and actually send a message of LOVE to Iran from Daily Paul.

It's a really neat movement.


The power in shifted away from the people so they have little control over the monster governments that interventionism and inflation have created. Massive governments live each day for a new war.
