Standing on two feet doesn't make a person human, only standing on principles does. It is for this reason that I am saluting Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany: a German woman who has bravely divorced herself and

The Putins of the world are blinded by the mullahs' dollar signs.

her nation from the ignominious past of Nazi Germany; a German woman who is standing for principles at the risk of her nation losing considerable profits from recognizing the legitimacy of the fraudulent government of neo-Nazi Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Chancellor Merkel has unequivocally expressed her revulsion at the fraud and violence by the Islamic Republic in reinstalling the maniacal Ahmadinejad in office for another four years. She has seen irrefutable evidence of heartless beating, torture and murder of Iranians who aimed to free themselves and their country - by peaceful means and through the ballot box - from the mullahs' suffocating medieval rule.

In contrast, the Russians Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev, and their fellow travelers the Chinese commissars, lost no time tripping over each other in expressing their effusive congratulatory greetings to Ahmadinejad for his "reelection".

Chancellor Merkel courageously voiced her repugnance at the election charade and its bloody aftermath. The Chancellor has further demanded that the murdering Mullahcracy unconditionally free all the political prisoners whose only sin has been their peaceful march to protest the shameless desecration of their votes.

While the Merkels of the world stand on principles and risk profits, the greedy eyes of the Putins of the world are blinded by the mullahs' dollar signs. Another powerful leader, Barack Obama, is biding his time in voicing his disgust at the horrific atrocities of the mullahs.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has no legitimacy whatsoever, as determined by the votes of the Iranians themselves and the judgment of the principled leaders and people of the world. The long-suffering, brave people of Iran are struggling for the same rights that all civilized societies cherish and uphold. It is disheartening to see that some powerful people are co-conspirators in prolonging the suffering of the Iranians by supplying the mullahs with weapons, as well as the means of building the atomic bomb. To these merchants of oppression and death, profits, not principles, are guide to their actions.

When the Merkels of the world arise against injustice, they are heeding the eternal words a champion of human rights, uttered eloquently over half a century ago. "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," wrote the imprisoned Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from a Birmingham, Alabama jail.

Now, there are thousands of innocent Iranians languishing in the torture chambers of the mullahs. The sadistic and horrid treatment of these children of mankind has resulted in the injury of many and the death of scores. The mullahs' goons draw pleasure from inflicting immense pain while extracting "confessions" from these victims. Hundreds of thousands of Iranians have been through this beastly treatment in the mullahs' prisons over the past three decades. Those lucky enough to find eventual freedom have provided the irrefutable evidence.

This is the time to tell the Islamist theocrats that their tenure is up.

Enough is enough. This is the time of the Chancellor Merkels of the world. This is the time to put an end, once and for all, to atrocities committed by those "men". This is the time to tell the Islamist theocrats that their tenure is up. These shameless, fraudulent agents of Allah must be buried in the graveyard of history along with dictators of all stripes.

I salute Chancellor Merkel for her stand on the right side of history at this critical juncture and for lending her invaluable support to the people of Iran.

Millions of Iranians, (both by their votes and in the streets) loudly and clearly declared the Islamic Republic an illegitimate entity. In return, Ali Khamenei, the self-styled, supreme leader and representative of Allah on earth, said that he would crush anyone who dares to rise against his chosen candidate, the psychopathic killer Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Sham elections, and a government that tortures and kills innocent protesters while engaging in a huge military buildup and military adventures overseas, is truly sickening and unconscionable.

We call upon the free governments of the world, as well as all other businesses, organizations and individuals, to enlist in a non-violent campaign to end the reign of terror of the belligerent clerical regime in Iran.
