An article on the Islamofascist regime in Iran has surfaced in an unlikely place-- CNN. Specifically, the CNN piece is an interview with a dissident who had the misfortune of experiencing the mullahs' hospitality firsthand.
The beatings, the broken bones, the squalid conditions -- it was "nothing," former prisoner Amir Fakhravar has told CNN, compared to the pain that he suffered under "white torture" in an Iranian jail.
"We didn't see any color, all of the cell was white, the floor was white, our clothes were white and also the light, 24 hours, was white. Our food, also, was white rice," explains Fakhravar, now 25. "We couldn't see any color and we couldn't hear any voices."
Amnesty International first documented Fakhravar's case in 2004, saying such conditions of extreme sensory deprivation appear to be designed to weaken political prisoners.
It says that he was held at a 'covert' detention center used by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
The organization added that he had to slip a white piece of paper under the door if he wanted to use the toilet. Even the guards wore padded shoes to muffle any sound. The organization describes the silence as "deafening" and "inhumane."
"I was there for eight months and after those months I couldn't remember my father and my mother's face," says Fakhravar. "When they released me from that prison I was not a normal person."
Fakhravar has said he was first arrested aged 17 after criticizing the Iranian regime through speeches and writings, and spent more than five years shuttling between Iranian prisons and being tortured. The "white torture" began in January 2004 and lasted until August of that year.
He eventually escaped to the United States but has said he will not rest until there is regime change in his homeland.
Who says the Muslims can't be inventive and innovative? Here they are, having conjured up yet another method to torture and torment innocent human beings, so I suppose they deserve some credit. And it's all courtesy of the SS of Iran, the evil and thuggish "Revolutionary Guard".
Even more surprising, CNN's article also reports that (according to the dissident) Iran wants to export Islamic Revolution to the entire world--naturally the Shia brand of Islam. This hasn't been news for at least 25 years (which is how long Teheran has pursued this objective), but CNN actually reporting it--well, that is news.
