Iranian Alert -- December 21, 2003 -- IRAN LIVE THREAD
The Iranian Student Movement Up To The Minute Reports ^ | 12.21.2003 | DoctorZin

The US media almost entirely ignores news regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran. As Tony Snow of the Fox News Network has put it, “this is probably the most under-reported news story of the year.” But most American’s are unaware that the Islamic Republic of Iran is NOT supported by the masses of Iranians today. Modern Iranians are among the most pro-American in the Middle East.

There is a popular revolt against the Iranian regime brewing in Iran today. Starting June 10th of this year, Iranians have begun taking to the streets to express their desire for a regime change. Most want to replace the regime with a secular democracy. Many even want the US to over throw their government.

The regime is working hard to keep the news about the protest movement in Iran from being reported. Unfortunately, the regime has successfully prohibited western news reporters from covering the demonstrations. The voices of discontent within Iran are sometime murdered, more often imprisoned. Still the people continue to take to the streets to demonstrate against the regime.

In support of this revolt, Iranians in America have been broadcasting news stories by satellite into Iran. This 21st century news link has greatly encouraged these protests. The regime has been attempting to jam the signals, and locate the satellite dishes. Still the people violate the law and listen to these broadcasts. Iranians also use the Internet and the regime attempts to block their access to news against the regime. In spite of this, many Iranians inside of Iran read these posts daily to keep informed of the events in their own country.

This daily thread contains nearly all of the English news reports on Iran. It is thorough. If you follow this thread you will witness, I believe, the transformation of a nation. This daily thread provides a central place where those interested in the events in Iran can find the best news and commentary. The news stories and commentary will from time to time include material from the regime itself. But if you read the post you will discover for yourself, the real story of what is occurring in Iran and its effects on the war on terror.

I am not of Iranian heritage. I am an American committed to supporting the efforts of those in Iran seeking to replace their government with a secular democracy. I am in contact with leaders of the Iranian community here in the United States and in Iran itself.

If you read the daily posts you will gain a better understanding of the US war on terrorism, the Middle East and why we need to support a change of regime in Iran. Feel free to ask your questions and post news stories you discover in the weeks to come.

If all goes well Iran will be free soon and I am convinced become a major ally in the war on terrorism. The regime will fall. Iran will be free. It is just a matter of time.

That is why I told you to keep up with the thread, It will tell you that these rallies are forced by the regime not the people.
And why you didn't pay attention to rallies of thousands of people on 9th of July this year?
You'd better listen and read more.

I would like to forge head-on into the belief that these anti-American and anti-Israeli rallies are 100% forced attendance and that all the people of Iran really love us. I'm quite aware of forced attendance at rallies (such as what occurred in Iraq), but I'm also aware there are many sympathizers to "the dark side" (such as in Iraq... those who are today blowing up our soldiers and their own countrymen). The Iranians I witnessed years ago on our US campuses sporting hoods with holes cut out for eyes and vile mouths shouting "death to America! death to the shaw" have raised another generation of hate-filled Iranians who continue to blame the US for all their ills.

I choose to keep both eyes and ears and common sense tuned in. You should do likewise.

You seem to be very wise.
Well, That generation you talked about is gone and they are also supporting reform in Iran.
Many of them have been jailed by the hard-line section of the Iranian government. I am not in favor of reform within, but I would like to show you the changes which have been taken place in Iran since 1979. We all know that the Iranian government, mullahs and their thugs, are the most dangerous creatures in our planet.
The youths in Iran support us, want us and they also backed our attack on Iraq & Taliban. They like President Bush and our country. They are no threat any more and they do love us. I agree that any reform, regime change and protests should be done in the hands of Iranians. Moreover, they would like to be our ally once again.
They want us to listen to them and bring their words, desires and will out for the people in our free world.
Listen to them Please.
