Interview with Iranian Activist Ahmad Batebi

The Gateway Pundit has a three part audio interview with Iranian activist and exile Ahmad Batebi. Batebi was imprisoned and tortured by the Iranian regime in 1999 because he was a leader of the student protests there. Now, through translator Banafsheh Zand Bonazzi, Batebi has spoken out against the soft response of the United States:
His (Obama) lack of response will not be regarded lightly. We will watch for how much his response will help the people or the regime. We will know more this week... Obama can hold talks with the regime in Iran if he wants. Is it morally correct for Obama to support the regime? Does he actually believe the people of Iran will appreciate that? The social movement requires support. If the world really wants the advent of terrorism to disappear in the Middle East, if they want peace with the Palestinians and Israel, if they want nuclear techhology to be developed for peaceful things and not nuclear weapons... They only need to suuport the people of Iran right now. This regime has the most dangerous of ideologies.
