Representative of Iranian Government
calls ACSA, threatens unspecified action for "attempting to coerce our
citizens into adopting deceitful ways of 'the Zionist West'".
Los Alamos, NM (BELLNAC)
September 20, 2007 --
Less than 24 hours after its announcement of
the "Free Membership for Iranian Citizens" program, the American Computer
Scientist Association (ACSA) is already under fire from the Iranian
An alleged representative of the Iranian Government called ACSA at 9:30 AM
on September 19, 2007 regarding the ACSA press release issued only yesterday
(click here) announcing free membership and an opportunity to
communicate with others throughout the world, seeking freedom and free self
expression for their homeland.
The representative claimed to be calling "on behalf of President H.E. Dr.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad" from the "Permanent Iranian Mission to the United
Nations", presumably in Geneva, Switzerland.
The representative indicated that the 'Iranian people' did not want any
'Western Ideologies' for Free. He insisted that the ACSA could be causing
itself trouble by revealing information that involve the private state
affairs of the Leadership of the Islamic Republic of Iran, particularly
those involving sales and distribution of petroleum products and Iran's
relationship with its partners and customers 'throughout the world'".
The representative advised the ACSA officer, over the phone, that
"strong steps would be taken" to prevent the ACSA and its membership from
"further soliciting participation from Iranian civilians and exchange of
information by internet, including but not limited to those under Iranian
foreign policy regarding unapproved activities."
The representative then hung up the phone indicating that this "would be the
only prior notice given to the ACSA."
An ACSA Public Relations Office responded to the negative telephone
"We at ACSA are only interested in
maintaining an air of Full Self Expression and Free Exchange of
Information about Computer Science and other topics for all civilians on
the Planet without discriminating against anyone. That the Iranian
Government engages in such confrontational behavior is not surprising.
However, we shall continue to offer Free Membership to all Iranian
Citizens except those within the present regime in Iran, unless and
until its regime changes to one devoted to its people first having
Freedom and Full Self Expression and a Free Exchange of Information,
along with Free Enterprise. ACSA shall continue to endorse such Freedoms
for all civilians on the planet. To the extent Mr. Ahmedinejad or the
string pullers behind the Iranian Regime solicited this foray into such
a negative telephone response this morning, he and they can, quite
simply, rest assured we will continue to be about Freedom: of speech, of
enterprise and that Membership in our association for Iranian citizens
will continue to be Free."
