Amazing Video Shows Iranian Protesters Storming Gallows where Prisoners were Being Hanged - Video
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | December 27, 2009 | Brian

Posted on 12/27/2009 10:07:01 AM PST by Federalist Patriot

Here is truly amazing (and graphic) video of a crowd in Sirjan, Iran storming police to prevent the public execution of two people. The video shows the crowd storming the gallows and cutting down the bodies of two men in the process of being hanged. It shows the protesters being shot at by Iranian forces as they tried to get away with the men. The condition of the men cut down from the gallows is not clear. Reports indicate several protesters were killed in the shooting.

Gateway Pundit has much more on the dramatic incident. . . .

Iranian citizens can't own a satellite dish to pick up the news - they sure can't own a gun. Totalitarians in Iran are no different than the ones here ... the difference is so far we've been able to hold them off...

Unbelievable video. Brought a tear to my eye as the protesters tried to save those guys. These people need weapons to fight back. But that will never happen. O-hole needs to play some more golf. Thats more important.

I was a high school kid in 1979 and was shouting “Bomb Iran!” with the rest of my classmates, but ...

30 years of living and learning make me understand then and now a little better.

God bless these brave people for standing up.
I only hope that I’m as brave if/when I’m called upon.

I wonder how recent this was. Iran is crumbling before our eyes. I wish the North Koreans and Cubans would rise up in like manners.

Anyone know why they were being hanged or whether this was related to the pro-democracy uprising as opposed to some local brouhaha or Sunni-Shiite intramural affair?

“Serbs would give them weapons. So would the Israelis, I would imagine.”

I doubt the Israelis are stupid enough to start arming an unknown quantity formed out of a nation that has historically hated them.

This is an amazing video, and shows incredible bravery...but lets face it, blowing yourself is also an act of personal bravery, contemptible as the desired results may be. And Islam has no shortage of people being willing to blow themselves up. This hardly makes them the second coming of the Continental Army.

A lot of people seem to be hoping that George Washington is right now crossing the Rubicon in Iran...the reality is that the revolutionaries are probably as bad or worse than the current government.

A revolution whose goals are true individual liberty, like our American revolution, is very rare. Our Founding Fathers wanted to be free. They didn’t want to dominate us. They didn’t feel oppressed by their own citizens, and wish to conduct reprisals. Most Brit sympathizers left after the war...they weren’t persecuted...I predict in this revolution, they will be “correcting” past evils for decades. For a leader who truly loves and understand freedom to spring up in Iran is about as likely as a rose spontaneously growing in your cat litter box.

Man...there is one heck of a mistake in there. I don’t want to point it out because I’d probably get banned. Lets just say that I really, really needed to add the word “up” to a sentence. Of course, what I accidentally described would be an incredible act of bravery in my own personal circumstances, since I’d have to break my own spine and ribs to do so.

Sorry about that...geez. Freudian slip or what.

Yeah, some people get as much gratification from just viewing it in a voyeuristic fashion as they do from actually performing the act, so good for you. It is good to expand your personal horizons, or in your case...maintain the borders of what you already have. I bet your cache is very interesting.

You didn’t know what was going on but you knew it applied here? And I can’t imagine the effort it took to find something like that back in 1965.

But, if you say so.

You may very well be right. Islam and Democracy are fundamentally at odds with one another. We may get something that’s worse. However, by helping them, we may encourage something that is better. If left to being spontaneous, no one knows what may happen. If assisted by those that love freedom and can instill freedom into the hearts of the Opposition’s leaders, good things may come of it. Russia in 1917 could have been won by the Whites or the Reds. It could have went either way. Doing little or nothing, is not a solution.

wtc911 is getting me all flustered with his expose on my subversive activities in the 60’s. I’m getting my rants confused, I was thinking about the attempted airline bomber when I wrote this. But the sentiment holds true, even for the Iranian revolution. The tides stop for no man, even when Muslims are fighting each other like hell.

Under most Administrations, the United States used to stand for freedom and liberty. Not under this Quisling. Iran, Honduras, bowing to Saudis and Chinese, giving Chavez a hug and a pinch on the bottom. This is the Thugocracy Administration.

I agree that the potential for change in Iran is worth the cost of the revolution, whatever the eventual outcome. You’re no less dead because the current Iranian gov kills you than if you get killed by the new Iranian gov in 5 years...so here is hoping it is positive and they truly do have a revolution. They’re begging for a Starbucks and 3 different MTVs.

And I agree that doing little or nothing is about the worst thing to do in any situation. And I firmly believe that Islam and Democracy can never co exist. One or the other has to go any time they meet.

The religious zealots were trying to overthrow the Shaw. A dictator dragging Iran into the 20th century. No burkas no executions in arenas. That demon Jimmy Carter gave Iran to the Ayatollah Khomeini and he came out of hiding in France to lead Iran....repression ever since....Carter was and is an evil man... Iran was quite westernized at the time.....

From what I recall Iran under the Shah was a different world, still corrupt but not as wacked out as the mullahs and their brainwashed brethren and followers.

This is an amazing video, and shows incredible bravery...but lets face it, blowing yourself is also an act of personal bravery, contemptible as the desired results may be.

Actually blowing ones self would be act of incredible gymnastics.

Blowing ones self UP on the other hand is not brave, it is the highest form of cowardice. They blow themselves up in order to get to heaven and reap their rewards. They are insane, not brave. In addition many suicide bombers are drugged or forced into the act and the trigger is controlled by someone safely out of the blast area.

I was going to say something like that. People commit suicide all the time, I’m not sure if I can call that brave, but it certainly takes strong willpower.

Suicide bombing, however, isn’t brave, because unlike the real acts of bravery in the Iran video, a suicide bomber doesn’t have to stand up to a powerful enemy as the freedom fighters are doing in this video. I would define courage and bravery as standing up and fighting for your beliefs, and not giving up even in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges (like these guards with guns). In contrast a suicide bomber just sneaks stealthily into a crowded area and flicks a switch. No courage necessary.

"George Washington is right now crossing the Rubicon in Iran..."

Er.....AHEM!

George Washington crossed the Delaware. Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon.

Washington to free the colonies from the British, Caesdar to pursue his dream of dictatorship.
