On February 18 when our scheduled guest failed to show, we talked with Iranian expatriate Moji Agha, a cultural psychologist and poet who gave an Iranian’s view on the conflicts in the Mideast. He lived through the Islamic Revolution of 1979 and its continuation through the Reform and the ongoing Green Movements.
To understand how the Iranian people have been led to the precipice by a self-interested theocracy that abuses religion and nationalism, listen to this extraordinary show and share it with your friends. It provides a deeper understanding of the realities that citizens throughout the region face and the painful "realities" that keep the Peoples of the region from coming together in the interests of all.
We re-examine the artificially created religious, cultural and nationalistic distinctions that keep us divided and unable to struggle together against the hegemonic forces that are threatening to destroy human civilization.
We must keep hope alive and as Mohammad forgave those who tried to destroy the Islamic movement in its infancy, we must be magnanimous in victory when our forces of peace and light prevail over the forces of violence and darkness. Lasting peace will come only when we can forgive each other.
If the dream of democracy in Iran, Israel Palestine and the entire world is to be realized, it will depend on a generation prepared to live in peace with its former enemies. Read a brief interview with Moji here: http://www.soldiersforpeaceinternational.org/2012/02/un-personing-corporations.html
