Radiant Iran

Radiant Iran
Francis Donald Grabau

Here's an image of Iran and the spiritual forces within Iran, Land of the Sufis, the great poets, alchemists, the ancient Persia of long ago. And there is little, perverted George W. Bush, Impish Troll of the corrupt and bloated Empire of America lying as usual, pounding his Terror Fist at all that he cannot know, care for, or understand.  That includes, obviously, not just the Nation, High Culture, and People of Iran but you and me and all the poor folk of New Orleans.  Actually, all the poor folk of the world.  This Evil Skull & Bones Monarch, assisted by his toady Senate has done nothing since his clan's staged 911 events but clamor for the destruction of Iran.  He wants to "nuke" it, and we all know by now, surely, that whatever Georgie-Porgie wants he gets.  Pray for your friends, for the world, for anything you care about as the coming year unfolds because as surely as hot dogs are America's 4th of July, missiles are the 'buns' those hot dogs rest upon.  Depleted Uranium is the mustard.  Corporate America  -which is certainly not the greater reality of real Americans-  requires, as Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us all, a constant diet of bombs, bullets, and all the manufactured gadgetry of War.

That's Bush up there in the collage, Bush twisted into an 'Osama bin Laden' pentagram shape dreaming of his forever lurking, Pentagon inspired "Mushroom Cloud".  And yes, that's the ugly, lip-sticked and lyposuctioned grimace of Madame Nancy Pelosi raising her green warning finger, doing all she possibly can to tell us Georgie-Porgie is simply "out of our control" he's "off-the-table" crazy and (poor us) we just can't stop him!  Yes, well as the American novelist, Hubert Selby warned us years ago (while fighting the censorship of America's pornographic psyche) "Tra-La-Laa was fifteen the first time she was laid" .... fittingly his novel was named, Last Exit To Brooklyn. 

Today Iran's duly elected President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whom Americans are instructed to hate (in the usual politically correct way, of course) is in downtown New York for the United Nations meeting .... you know, that odd panel serving as the Board of Directors for the Anglo-Saxon Corporate Empire.  I cannot resist quoting you this from the bastion of British Effete Snobbery, the UK Guardian:

"Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who arrives in New York for the United Nations general assembly today, has been forced to abandon plans to visit ground zero, where the World Trade Center stood until the September 11 attacks of 2001. Politicians from President George W Bush to Senator Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner in the 2008 race for the White House, were outraged by the prospect of a visit to New York's most venerated site by a "state sponsor" of terrorism."

Yes, two of the most certifiably rotten LEGION OF LIARS in American Politics, Miss Hillary & Georgie-Porgie are warning us how "hateful" Iran is, how it must be stopped from using any form of peaceful nuclear energy while Fascist Isreal, the Terrorist State second only to the USA, threatens the whole Middle East with a nuclear arsenal already fashioned for bloody kosher war.  Remember Mordecai Vanunu?  Aware of Israel's wanton destruction and torture of the Palestinians?  O well, George & Hillary can be in bed with the evil scumbag, Ehud Olmert, but we must not let a scholarly Arab near the ruins of 911 lest he accidentally look down and find the tiny slip of paper hidden there that tells how 911 was nothing but a USA false flag operation!  Sigh!  Darn, dem godam A-rabs!  (Hear his phony Texas twang!)

Now, of course, the newly installed corporate fascist regime in France are playing their part right on cue (that same Guardian article):

"Bernard Kouchner, the French foreign minister, said last week that it was "necessary to prepare for the worst ... and the worst is war." He later qualified his remarks, saying he wanted to avoid that outcome.  France has joined America in pushing for a tough third sanctions resolution against Iran at the UN security council but is meeting strong resistance from China and Russia. Britain has been doing its best to bridge the gap, but it is increasingly likely that new sanctions will be implemented by a US-led "coalition of the willing."

God, the things the West is "willing" to do at the behest of USA neo-cons boggles the mind!  No?  Sure, let's all gang up on Iran and nuke it, too.  Dump a couple more million pounds of depleted uranium on the Arab folks and rob more of their Libraries and trash more of their Archaeological Ruins.  I always wanted one of those Persian Lions inside my tiny mansion at the Louvre!  Beat the War Drums, sound the call, kill the winged hearts of the sissy twirling Sufis!

The collage I've made above is the first in what I imagine will be a series of works wherein I attempt to weave an artistic spell to break the mind controlled hatred of the American People toward Iran.  I invite you to do the same, or something similar. This Iran is an ancient, artistic, highly mystical culture we ought to keep our grubby little hot dog fingers off of if we don't want to increase the just wrath of the avenging Nemesis about to scatter Americans from here to eternity with pickled relish!  We Americans need to be praying for Iran and respecting Ahmadinejad rather than grovelling at the smelly feet of the likes of Bush, Clinton, Pelosi and the Western Corporate Fascist Press. 

Let's remember Rumi:

"Come, come, whoever you are.
Wonderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.
It doesn't matter.

Ours is not a caravan of despair.

Come, even if you have broken your vow
a thousand times
Come, yet again, come, come."

Yours in the loving arms of Allah,
