Below is my response to commenters who ripped into me and Israel for expressing grave doubts regarding the so called “DEAL” with Iran:

“Iran has deceived the West for decades and dozens of IAEA inspectors have said so publicly. The current head of the IAEA says he is sounding an “alert to the world” that Iran must not be trusted. I certainly don’t hate Persians…….I despise the Ayatollahs that have turned that country into a theocratic prison. The 2009 election is a perfect example of what the clerics think of their own youth…..they killed them on the streets for protesting electoral fraud! Supporters of Obama have very short memories. Unlike many politicians, when Ayatollah Khameini repeatedly calls Jews the cause of all the worlds’ problems and swears that he will destroy Israel, you would be a fool not to believe him. Hitler told Germans exactly what he planned for Europe’s Jews….a Jew free Europe! 

By 1939, it was clear that didn’t mean putting them into refugee boats and sending them elsewhere but the world DID NOT take him at his word. Same thing now… sad that you are willing to risk so many innocent people. Islam demands the death of all Jews….read the Qur’an, Haddiths, Islamic Jurisprudence, Reliance of the Traveler, ask Al Azhar University…..all agree with one voice, Sunni or Shi’ia, the Jews must be destroyed if Judgement Day and ascension to Paradise is to occur. Ignorance of Islam (which I have studied extensively), is leading you down a path of believing Iran’s dissimulation. Perhaps you are unaware that Islam allows four specific, named types of deception of Infidels in order to defend Islam and further its goals. The Iranians used these strategies without diplomats recognising their origin, as they have done for years. Mark this post of mine for future reference. 

Remember that 1/2 the 1.6B Muslims on earth are illiterate and many more cannot speak or read Arabic. Very few of these people know what is really in the Source Documents of Islam. I suggest to all to take the time to read and study the life of Muhammad and the underlying aims and tenets of Islam. The reference materials are freely available. Then, once you have a proper understanding of Islam, read the published manifesto of the Muslim Brotherhood, of the Ayatollahs and of Al Queda’s seven stage plan for world Islam. This is no joke…….go read what Churchill, who studied Islam closely, said about the threat of Islam, beginning in 1899 and continuing all his life! As far as Iran defeating ISIS, Iran wants hegemony over the Arabian world and the destruction of Israel. They are using ISIS as a decoy for their true goals. Ask Charles Krauthammer and General Dempsey, former Joint Chief of US Armed Forces. Look up their comments on You Tube. Stop with personal opinion…….read, listen, watch and learn!”

I am totally sick and tired of the “haters”, “trolls”, “armchair critics” and misogynist “slut-shamers” that seem to have nothing better to do than attempt to cut tall poppies down. Despite yards of skin visible on Red Carpets coast to coast (no objections from a self-confessed lover of the female aesthetic and no objectification either), certain individual celebrities who have their tongues firmly in their cheeks (or stuck out for all to see in a subconscious act of defiance), attract vitriol way out of proportion to that directed at all the rest combined. I just had to comment on a particularly nasty piece of envy based hatred that I came across this morning re Miley Cyrus, a talented entertainer, managed by her ever attentive mother, supported by her commercially aware father and a delightfully normal American family. In show-business since wandering onto the set of a TV interview of her dad when she was two years old and delighting the audience and performing ever since, there has rarely been an entertainer that has exceeded the sheer hard work, dedication and commitment applied to their art as exhibited by Miley Cyrus. 

As a psychiatrist, I am all too aware of the explosion of vicious cyber-bullying over the last 10yrs and the horrible human toll that has resulted amongst vulnerable youth. When I come across it I condemn it in a variety of ways, depending on the audience likely to see my posts and the nature of the sites on which the hateful posts of these bullies are found. 

Today, I wrote this:

Sad, isn’t it? What some call “morality”, I call nonsensical, petty prudishness! Freedom of Expression means more than allowing people to speak or publish. It extends to freedom to dress and adorn as you wish. Adults can & must work out for themselves what is safe, what is not, what hurts others and whether that should change how one behaves or not, etc. 

There’s a disease or condition very common in Western Democracies that chips away at our freedoms…’s called “love of rules, regulations and conventions” and it is a crippling disease. Add malicious gossip, envy fuelled trolling, slut-shaming and other hateful judgementalness……they are all actively damaging our freedom of expression. Miley Cyrus is a young, free woman living in a notionally young, free society, hurting no-one and bringing joy to millions (or billions!). Those criticising her appear to want to fashion her, to sculpt her into their template of who they demand she should be. 

Freedom of Expression is the First Amendment of the American Constitution for a very good and carefully thought out set of reasons. America’s Founders didn’t place it First by accident! Those learned men knew how obsessed people could be in opposing the freedom of expression of others by chipping away at it. Haters of harmless entertainers and other celebrities, are saying “express yourself only as I tell you to”. Miley is very sensible to ignore them, as she’ll never cure them of their envy and low self-esteem but as a non-celebrity with my own freedom of expression intact, I say Fuck the Haters!! Thank goodness they do not have the power to prevent my protest!

Do you feel insignificant enough now?
What do you make of our World’s constant conflict? In the big scheme of things? 
No wonder religion was a necessary and understandable psychological defence mechanism!!!
