Iran students heckle Ahmadinejad
AFP via Breitbart ^ | 12/11/06

Posted on 12/11/2006 6:04:16 AM PST by advance_copy

Iranian students have disrupted a speech by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at a prestigious Tehran university, setting fire to his picture and heckling him.

"Some students chanted radical slogans and inflamed the atmosphere of the meeting" at the Amir Kabir University, said the semi-official Fars news agency on Monday, which is close to Ahmadinejad.

"A small number of students shouted 'death to the dictator' and smashed cameras of state television but they were confronted by a bigger group of students in the hall chanting: 'We support Ahmadinejad'," it said.

It was the latest in a series of student demonstrations in recent days, the first time in least two years that such protests have taken place on this scale at Iranian universities.

"Iran students heckle Ahmadinejad"

In other news, today 40 families of missing Iranian students met with UN Humanitarian officials to discuss the whereabouts of their children. Officials declared that perhaps the Joos kidnapped them and are using their blood for Matzoh.

A lot of university students in America believe Ahmadinejad isn't so bad, and we're just a bunch bigots for not understanding his "culture"...Iranian students are smarter than ours.

We should support a violent overthrow of the regime. This should be done by private citizens in the West financing a shadow government of young Iranian exiles. This should not be done by the US State Department.

"It is my honour to burn for the sake of the nation's ideals and defend the system," Ahmadinejad was quoted as telling protesters who set fire his picture, ISNA said.

"Americans must know that even if Ahmadinejad's body is burnt a thousand times for this purpose, Ahmadinejad will not retreat even a centimetre from these ideals."

It would be my honor to pour gasoline on him

I have a very friendly neighbor who was originally from Iran. She was married to an American, and her husband died a few years ago. She left some months ago for Iran to bring a relative back here for surgery of some sort, and has not returned as expected. Another relative here is stopping by from time to time to mind the house, but it is a strange situation. I don't know enough about the situation in Iran to know if people from the US have problems getting out once they return there.

Her family member here who looks after the house is reportedly quite a capable professional person, so I'm assuming that he is handling any such communications with the government. My info is coming second hand, I have not talked to him directly, so there are probably facts I am unaware of. But it made me wonder how easily people pass in and out of that country if they have been living here.
I am also assuming she is a US citizen.

It isn't usually a problem. Iranians travel to Iran from the U.S. all the time.

A student burns a picture of the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during a protest while he was speaking at Amirkabir university in Tehran December 11, 2006. Dozens of Iranian students burned pictures of President Ahmadinejad and threw firecrackers in an effort to disrupt his speech at a university on Monday, a presidential office spokesman said. It was first time the president, elected in a landslide in June 2005, had faced such open hostility at a public event. REUTERS/ISNA (IRAN)

Ahmanutjob: a definite throwback to an earlier time---listen to his rhetoric---it either hearkens back to the 1930s , or the Eight Century, or more precisely probably is couched in all that defensive/dysfunctional reasoning which pretty much defines the ME/Islamic worldview that says outright: "We are not a member of the family of nations and we never intend to be. We are a special case, we have a mission"/ Of course he has no choice but to project, Freudian-style , and pretend that is exactly what the US, and the West are doing.

Of course, the biggest problem with people like Ahmanutjob and Chavez is that when you have control of that much petro-wealth, you can BUY your support, your votes, and your loyalty.Which is why you will ALWAYS see counter-students coming out and screaming "We support Nutjob!!!"

Actually it's been going on for some time. The Iranian people are quite progressive, it's the leadership that is not.

Does anyone know how we as citizens can support the people of Iran to rebel against their dictators?

I meant to imply that our influence has begun.

We (and our allies) are working very hard to get the moderates up to speed - and to step up their protests.

We are going to pursue a little insurgency in Iran.

This is the definition of a brave person - not the smarmy, pampered, well protected leftist snots who routinely heckle Bush without fear of reprisal.

Let these punks try the same thing in Iran and see what happens.

Admittedly more than half of the comments take the side of the students, but only a little more than half.

Usual leftist myths are in evidence. (No, Dummies, Mossadegh was not overthrown, and the Shah installed, by the CIA. It was a BRITISH initiative, in which the Americans played a very minor role, and only went along with reluctantly after repeated entreaties from Churchill to Eisenhower.)
