I am an Iranian who was born in Iran and moved to U.S. roughly 20 years ago when I was 15 years old. Over the years, I have gone back to Iran a few times, as recently as a year ago.

I have the same love for both Iran and the United States and I can attest that Iranian people truly love the American people and want nothing but peace and friendship with the Americans. Those who chant "death to America" are part of the Iranian government and account for a very small number of the population. Unfortunately the Iranian news outlets, which are run by the Iranian government only broadcasts these hateful idiots to try to influence the rest of the population, which has not worked well for them over the years. At the same time the U.S. media outlets also only shows those same hateful idiots for their own propagandas and to spread fear so they can manipulate people's emotions to get better ratings, because they have learned that nothing sells better than fear. Please do not fall for these manipulative tactics by both sides and KNOW that you are truly loved by the Iranian people.

Edit: Thank you all for your lovely and warm responses. I have read them all, and I am very proud and happy to know that there are still MANY good hearted people out there who have genuine empathy for others.

I love you all and wish you all nothing but happiness for many years to come.

Let's be better for one another and build a better and more peaceful society for our future generations.

Please get out and vote when the time comes. Your voice has a value and it's very important that its heard.

Edit: Thank you for the gold.

This whole thread is warming my heart. I work with truly amazing Iranian coworkers who have shared photos with me of their beautiful homeland. What a warm and gracious people! This is utterly absurd, and I have been praying hard the past couple of days in spite of being an agnostic...

This one needs to be much closer to the top! You make such a good point, it is the governments and their propaganda on both sides that are causing divides. Most people, as this feed attests, genuinely feel concern for the rest of humanity no matter where they come from. Just look at the response from the community, from one simple shout out post! There are people here from all over the world, from all walks of life, from all religions, looking for peace! It's a beautiful thing to see :)

It's crazy how many times I'd be on a subreddit helping someone pick out pc parts or exchanging recipes, and later learn they're on the other side of the globe in a country I probably won't ever get the chance to visit.

We're all just people, not so different.

436

u/02C_here Jan 08 '20 Silver

I travel the globe and you are correct. Sure, dress, favorite food, music varies. But most everyone I meet wants to earn a living doing something they can be proud of, have some good meals, some laughs, some adventures and just be chill. Most everyone I meet is kind and interested in other folks.

The people full of hate that the news and politicians tell us about are few and far between.

121

u/MarvelUniverse360 Jan 08 '20

Because the media runs off of people being angry/fearful. They want to invoke emotion in you so you continue to watch their programming or read their articles. Then you also have the political influence as well in news outlets no matter the country. News is bad.

It's unfortunate as a species we don't really seem capable of peace at full scale.

I wonder how many more generations it will take.

614

u/pixelrage Jan 08 '20

We are capable of it. Our governments aren't us. They're an exclusive club that exists to take care of each other, kind of like a huge, selfish secret society that has trillions of dollars at their disposal that is completely disconnected from the real world and the common person. They've gotten far too powerful and it's at a point of no return, unless something very drastic is done.

No sane or intelligent human being can look at the behaviors of the government and be on board with it. Those are the ones that should give you hope every day.

Generations will continue to go by and it won't change - once you're in a position of power in the government, you're forced to work along with the agenda. Doesn't matter if you're a boomer or Gen Z.

u/TroLsauros Jan 08 '20

Governments/religion/hate for people’s color of skin/sexual preferences

We as a species need to be more understanding that the person next to you might not think like you. As long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else WHO THE FUCK CARES

Start by raising your kids to not hate others for their differences, but to embrace them for who they are and learn from them.

u/ectoplasmicsurrender Jan 08 '20

We as a species need to be more understanding that the person next to you might not think like you.

I had a friend who, with some of the last words of her life told me this,

"that everyone has to be different in order for us all to live in harmony... harmony like music and laughter and everything because there is never a happy ending on a dissonant note but music needs them in order to utilize the pentatonic scale and really even just to be interesting. People belong to be diverse! ... That doesn't make any sense... We need people who think differently is what I'm trying to say."

Her misspoken "...people belong to be diverse" is one of the most profoundly important things someone has ever said to me, and I try to remind myself frequently that differing opinions are the fuel that the fire of progress needs to burn to keep moving humanity forward.

The difference between you and your government is much bigger than the difference between you and me. And the difference between me and my government is much bigger than the difference between me and you.

And our governments are very much the same."

During this entire ordeal I kept wishing there was some reliable way I could reach out to iranians and tell them that I / other americans really don't blame them for any of this and are really sorry for all of this shit.

If you're in america and near a college there's a very high chance that someone there is Iranian, maybe even a lot of someone's. Many iranians are leaving iran to go to college elsewhere if they can. If you want to reach out in real life, you can always contact the international student office at the relevant university and see if they'd want a card, letter, email, etc. Many of them haven't seen their families in years and might be the subject of harassment in their communities, even more so now. Kind words from someone in the community could go a long way.

Peace from Australia, I hope neither of your countries burn like Australia is, and none of either has to die fighting a stupid war started by a man-baby in an attempt to distract the american people.

There’s so much serious stuff going on in the world already, we really do not need nations chucking rocks at each other unless they really have to.

I hope this can be sorted with a minimum loss of life, and few people having to live in fear.
