Goga Khalatbari: Letter to the Iranian Community

Dr. Goga Khalatbari

Dr. Goga Khalatbari

This letter is to inform all Iranians in the world the passing of a star in the Iranian Community, Dr. Goga Khalatbari, Philosopher, Poet, Humanitarian, Man of Peace, Man of God, and True Iranian to his last days on this earth. After 13 years of battling cancer, my Uncle Goga went to the heavens on Friday, October 3, 2008, at 1:30 a.m. because God wanted this poet angle back in the Heavens. Whenever we see the shiniest star, we need to stop and say a prayer for this great man.

Dr. Goga Khalatbari is survived by his children Bebe, Susie, and Jeffery Khalatbari. He is also survived by his daughter-in-law Natalie Khalatbari, and five grandchildren, Bruce, Kimya, Hunter, Yasmine, and Austin. He is also survived by his siblings, Brother Adelfar Khalatbari, and sisters, Simin Behbahani, Farishteh Khalatbari, Farkhondeh Khalatbari.

There are many things about this great man that all of us must know. He was a poet of all Iranians, the first man in Iran to rise up and fight for the democracy and freedom for all Iranian people. He fought the oppressive government to free the sale of oil in the open market for all Iranians. He was the first Iranian to rise up with his poems and over 600 books; he touched the lives of all of us. He was the first Iranian in the United States to have his own newspaper called the Iran Express in the 1980’s.

My Uncle Goga left his beloved Iran in the 1950’s because he knew that in order to publish his words, he needed to be in a free country so he could lead with his pen and his words and touch the lives of many Iranians. My Uncle Goga stood for all that is right in the Iranian world and never criticized or said bad things about anyone regardless of religion, country, or culture. In the 1960’s, he was one of the first Iranians in the United States to stand beside a great president, known as John F. Kennedy, and speak to him in front of thousands of people in Washington, D.C. about human rights and freedom in all the world. My Uncle was a man who always worked to free Iran with his poems, his words, and his smile. He loved his family and his people.

On his last days on this beautiful earth he said to me, “My nephew Ali, you must carry the torch of freedom and democracy through Iran. We must free our people; we must give equal rights to all the women in Iran and the Middle East. We must help the poor and feed the hungry. And you my nephew must continue the work of peace. Every generation has a face that stands for the good of the people such as Dr. Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, Gandhi and Dr. Mohammad Mosaddeq. These people always come and touch the world with their words and actions, and peaceful demeanor. This generation’s face was my Uncle Goga Khalatbari. We must never give up our rights to be free, or our pens to stop writing; our hearts to stop signing; or our minds to stop seeing all the beauty of the people. We the people must not ever let the memories of our philosophers, poets, writers, freedom lovers, and lovers of our country of Iran to be taken from us. Every person knows when their time is up on this beautiful earth. My Uncle, Dr. Goga, knew his last days were coming but he always had a smile on his face and he went out of his way to help the people. When he went out of this world he went out like a tiger. We are all born in this world for a purpose and we are all children of the heavenly lights. We come in and see the lights and we go out and follow the lights to the heavenly skies. We unite in the afterlife with our families and friends.

May God rest your soul in the heavens my Uncle and may all that you dreamed about on earth come true for all; and may God in the heavens keep you safe until we all meet again. For now, I will see you every night, in the skies, as a shining star that you have always been.

God bless you and love from all of us.

Ali

This is a message from Ali, the voice of democracy, the man from Iran, the Middle East, and the United States of America (USA).

This month is one of the worst months in the history of man kind. By that I’m talking about one of the worst days in American history. It has been 7 years since 9/11 has happened and I would like to send again this year my condolences from Ali’s Men and Women for Peace to all the families that lost loved ones on that morning and to say that we the people of the Middle East want to send a strong message to the people of America that we are your friends and we share your sorrows and your hardship day after day because you have always been a friend to the people of the Middle East. We would like to say that every soul that was lost on that day, it is in the Heavens with eternal peace and it is Gods journey of life that we have, that we fallow every day of our lives how our journey comes to an end. Life is a gift from the Heavens and it should never be taken in a senseless act of terrorism by a bunch of un-educated and un-caring rich terrorist. And I want to say as the voice of Freedom and Democracy I Ali condemn all of those terrorist and all of their followers and everything they stand for. And again my condolences to all the families and all the people of the United States of America. God Bless and I hope we will never see a day like 9/11.

This is a message from Ali, the voice of democracy, the man from Iran, the Middle East, and the United States of America (USA).

This month I want to emphasize and repeat how we at Ali’s men and women started our website over two years ago. And the message still is we the people in  iran and the Middle East must once and for all come out of the shadows of the terror in the Iran and the Middel East say yes to peace to democracy. We the people in the Iran must never allow any of us to get killed or brutalized with the hands of a few killers in our World. The Palestine people must recognize that they are all brothers and sisters no matter what fashion they belong to they must never be any execution of any one on the hand of another one because they do not believe in your way of life. To the Palestine people you must find the way to once and for all create your state and your country with the help and the movement of the power of the vote, vote for freedom, democracy and most of all vote for your future and stop the killings and start rebuilding the country of Palestine with the help of the other world countries. Peace is in our hands and the future is bright.

To the governments of the world. As we have seen in July that the Iranian government with the test of their new missiles and show of aggression have no attention to take any kind of peaceful solution to stop producing nuclear weapons. We the people at Ali’s men and women have chosen 9/12 as the day the whole World will come together as one and make peace with all the people in the Middle East the key, the key, the key, is Iran, Iran, Iran and the people must once and for all join the true voice of democracy and Ali’s men and women for peace and carry the Democracy flag and the power of the vote through Iran and the Middle East and once and for all say to the minority killers and that we the people have rights and our coming out of the shadows of fear and terror and take back our countries from the minority rulers and killers. So there shall never be another person be killed or blown up and there bodies and minds be sold for as little as some tea and sugar if they kill and cause mayhem in the streets. We the people have the date and we will soon have the year which we will put together the biggest rally that the World has ever seen with our voices, hearts and minds. We our proud and we are ready to take the next steps. God Bless and see you soon Ali.

This is a message from Ali, the voice of democracy, the man from Iran, the Middle East, and the United States of America (USA).

With every great country comes a great event that happens in the history. With the greatest country in the world, American, that event happened on July 4th 1776. On that day America declared its independence. And that was the greatest moment in American history. Freedom, Freedom for all freedom that came with the new constitution that to this day the people of America live by.

We the people of Iran have the same desires and the same destiny as the people of the American Revolution had in 1776. We want freedom, a new constitution, free elections to form a new government and once and for all declare our independence from the kingdom of the Mullahs and to tell the world, we the people are all united and stand with the world in democracy and unity and we are not your enemies and we are not terrorist.

To the Iranian government you do not represent us, the majority. We do not want your empty threats and you’re bulling of our neighbors. With your threats of starting Wars and segregating and stopping the world oil flow threw the seas, its just not what we the people stand for.

To the people of Iran this is from Ali, the voice of the democracy movement. We the people have rights and we must send a clear message to the kingdom of Mullahs and let them know that their time of ruling is ending because with the next election that is coming we the people with the power of the vote, and our voices raised to the skies with the democracy flags in our hands will elected a new president and a new government and once and for all make our independence come alive.

To the Jewish government of Israel, War with Iran is not the answer because these Mullahs have no value for life and they do not care how many innocent people they sacrifices to achieve a minor victory. In order to have peace in the Middle East you must do exactly what your doing, making peace with all your neighbors. And I Ali challenge all of the Israel’s and all the Jewish people in the world to join the cause and let us forever make peace between the Jewish state of Israel and the world. And let us all declare our independence and truly fallow the history that is awaiting all of us. We must build our golden temples, we must build our cities and we must truly show the world that a Jewish state can live in middle east democracy and have peace in our life time. So never again, the blood of a middle east child or a Jewish child be spilled because of religion.

To the people that our betting on the stock market and the oil prices that there will we a war in the Middle East that will stop the flow of oil to the people that our trying to corner the free world and its markets by putting their money in oil stocks just like they did with bad home loans. I have a surprise for you, not only you will not get rich you will lose all your money because oil is a gift from the Heavens and it’s in the ground for the people of the world. And it’s not going to run out for the next 500 years and by raising the prices of oil everyday and by spreading false rumors, you are doing nothing but hurting the innocent people of the world who go to work and come home to be able to feed and their family and children. It is not for the stock market to decide the fate of many to the people that our trying to get rich off another quick scam, what will you do in the next 6 months when the price of oil goes down to the lowest prices that you have ever seen. take that to the bank.

Remember, we can do this together, one vote at a time, one country at a time and one person at a time.

“Iranians for Democracy”

March 2008, it’s a great month and on the first day of spring it’s the Persian new year also known as Norooz. I Ali want to take this time to wish all of my Iranian brothers, sisters, all of my family and all of Ali’s men and women for peace in Iran, U.S. and all over the world a happy new year and a Happy Norooz to all.

We the people must not ever forget our people in Iran and all over the World. We in the U.S. and the World can celebrate new years in open, but our families in Iran can only celebrate new years in the shadows of fear because we the people of Iran made one of the biggest mistakes of the 20th century over 29 years ago by voting in the kingdom of the mullahs the so called Iranian revolution. Now that we have suffered for over 3 decades it is time for a change a fresh start. It is time once and for all to rise up with the power of the Democracy and our votes and take back our beautiful country Iran and truly give our people freedom and human rights without empty promises. It is time to come alive and let the Iranian government know that we the people have a voice of a champion and freedom and a democracy his name is Ali and we want a new life and a new direction. We the people want to live in peace with the world. We are not terrorist, we are not killers, we do not want nuclear bombs, we do not want to build any missiles to kill any human being in the world and we the people with the power of the vote will remove the kingdom of the mullahs and take back our country Iran. The key the key is Iran, Iran, Iran!

This is a challenge to all the Iranian singers and entertainers do you remember how you felt the day the music died in our homeland of Iran? And how you had to flee the Country in the shadow of the darkness of be hung with the hands of these bar barrack henchmen. This challenge is to you. Starting with Andy, Arash, Dariush, Ebi Googoosh, Habie, Kamran, Omaid, Shadmhr this is just a few of the great Iranian entertainers that I am challenging to come join the Democracy movement and put together one of the biggest free Iran concerts in U.S. and all over the world so we can send a clear message to all of our brothers and sisters that our sprits our alive our hearts and mines and bodies are one and we have joined a cause of true democracy and we our coming to save you with the power of our voices and our votes.

To the great Iranian Press, Radio and T.V. the first one goes to Persian voice of America. I want to know why you have not reported any of my writing and done any interviews or send any of the messages of hope and democracy to anyone in Iran or in the U.S. and say that you have herd of a man called Ali he does not want to be a hero he just wants to be a messenger of hope and peace for all the people of Iran. That’s for you. I want to know why?

To the great Radio station called Radio Javana. Why have you not joined the Democracy movement with Ali and his men and women for peace. What kind of freedom of the press are you doing. Do we need to send you some help. Do we need to turn to the Today shows anchor Matt Lauer and ask him to show you the way he went to Iran and interviewed our people. I Ali the voice of democracy is still waiting to hear from you.

Every movement has a voice, Every voice has a story, Every sacrifice has a story, Every face has a story. This is our story of a voice and the Iranian people with a rich heritage and a back round that goes back thousands of years as our ancestors and all of our relatives have always stood up for all of the Iranian people the weak and the strong men, women and children. We the Iranian people must do the same for all of the Iranians.

This is a message from Ali, the voice of democracy, the man from Iran, the Middle East, and the United States of America (USA).

It has been a few months since my last update. The reason was, I had been waiting to see how the Democratic process in Pakistan and the new election was going to go with the return of the first true leader of democracy; her name is Benazir Bhutto, the former Prime Mister of Pakistan.

Upon her return to Pakistan from exile, a terrorist tried to assassinate her on her first day of return to her home land. Over 20 years ago I saw a shining star, Benazir Bhutto, the first Muslim women Prime Minister to be elected to Pakistan and the democracy movement in her country. Once she returned to Pakistan and I saw the first events of her assassination attempt, I knew deep in my heart that we the people in the World would be in for a huge movement. It is with deepest regrets that Benazir Bhutto was assassinated; not only the people of Pakistan, but the people in the whole Muslim World lost a true tiger of the democracy movement. I wish to send our condolences from Ali and Ali’s women for peace, from all over the world, to her family and the people of Pakistan.

Like many people before her, she knew what her and her family had sacrificed to get where they are at today. These are her famous words upon her return to her homeland of Pakistan: “I am what the terrorist fear the most and I want to say that it is us, we the people, that the terrorist fear the most,” and I could tell you by her visions that she had seen the way for freedom and democracy, and she knew that with every movement there are sacrifices that we have no control over.

I want to say that the free elections of Pakistan must go forward with the people of Pakistan, and remember the one thing that the terrorist fear the most is the power of the vote of the people of the people. I can tell you with the Muslim for Democracy Flag in our hands, that our voices that will carry throughout the MIddle East and with the power of the vote we shall have democracy. We shall have peace. And we will not surrender to any dictatorships or terrorists. We will not sell our souls, our bodies, and our country for blood money. These are the keys that we must follow today, so the memory of a true tiger of democracy, Benazir, a mother that sacrificed her life for her country, and for a brighter future for her family and fellow country people. And to the people of Pakistan, vote freely, without anxiety, without prosecution. Vote with your heart and your mind and follow the footsteps of your brothers and sisters in Iraq. Once you have voted, place your finger in the jar of ink and raise your finger to show the world that you are united and you are free.

There was another famous man, may God rest his soul, that I had a dream. His name was non-other than Dr. Martin Luther King. His famous words, just like Benazir Bhutto, were that “I have seen the promise land, and I may not get there with you, but someday, regardless of color or religion, our children will be free.”

As usual the key, the key, the key, to peace and stability in the Middle East comes from nowhere but Iran, Iran, Iran. It is time for the Iranian people to step out of the shadow of fear and prosecution. With the power of the young and the vote of the people, we will put our country back to the path of respectability, democratic movement, and freedom for all Iranians. We must not allow the kingdom of Mullahs to survive and keep executing and harassing and allowing us to be a terrorist nation. I want to say to all the Iranian people that I, Ali, your voice for democracy and rich family heritage, have seen the future. I have seen what we the people can do with the power of our vote. There is no price that you can put on freedom; there is no price that you could put on respectability; and there is no price you could put on human sacrifices. I want you to know that I, Ali, will be there with you and beside you when we raise the Flag of Democracy all over our country. We will let our actions and voices set the example for the next 500 years to come. And as I have been saying, I wish to make the “day after”, the day of movement. The “day after” is non-other than 9/12. If all of the people of the world would like to join the cause of freedom with us, please send your emails to Ali@iraniansfordemocracy.com with all your info and we will send you a free Democracy Flag and tee-shirt at no cost so you will be prepared to join the cause with us.

To Mr. Muhammad Ali, my great man and a brother, thank you for your kind reply and your words, and thank you for letting me know that you are joining the cause with me because struggles are part of life and you have recognized just like Ali, that this is a fight between the good in the in midell east  and the minority bad people of the world.

Together we will march on 9/12, hand and hand with our shirts and our democracy flags in our hand and we will send the message of peace, happiness, and health to all because it is time once more to “float like a butterfly and sting   like a bee and say no more terror, no more killing and no more sacrificing of our people”. Thank you my brother and God Bless you.

If you have read and you would like to join the cause please send the message all over the world and say that you have heard of a man called Ali. He does not want to be a hero, just a man with a message of peace and hope for all.

Remember, we can do this together, one vote at a time, one country at a time and one person at a time.
