For those attacking .@HeshmatAlavi 4not revealing his id remember he's up against ruthless dictatorship which has executed 120k for their views
has killed bloggers under torture like Sattar Beheshti
assassinated poets like Ghazaleh Alizadeh
executed writers like Saeed Soltanpour
But Iranian regime's brutalities know no borders
critics of #Iran regime have been slain around the world
frm Dr Kazem Rajavi to Mohammad Hossein Naghdi
frm Hitoshi Igarashi, slain for translating Satanic verses to fatwa for Salman Rushdie which still stands
#WeAreAllHeshmat
But 1key question remains
why is @heshmatalavi's identity a prob?have any of his statements/remarks been baseless/false?!I've read most his articles &followed his tweets which are always backed with facts &docs
Issue isn't 'fake' identity but what he's revealing
