The opposition is shouting Allahu Akbar from their roofs. It is not about freedom. They are and remain Muslims and Muslims often rise from abulia to mob frenzy. This is the same crowd that turned against America. These are still hugely bickering groups (bickering among themselves), with no plan, no clarity, except dissatisfaction for the status quo. These are not the Hungarians fighting Stalinism, East Germans hankering to pull down the wall. They are Muslims shouting Allah is Great. They are the frying pan to fire crowd. It is a Green Revolution - green as in the color of Islam. It might likely inspire similar green revolutions among the restive Islamic brotherhoods of the world. No bill of rights will issue from this, only chaos. The chaos of the Islamic ethos which will - should they be successful - lead to another totalitarian regime.
The US does well to stay out. No lover of democracy, or human rights would shout “Allah is Great” as a battle cry.
Their leader is no moderate. He is practically one of the inventors of Hezbollah.
Persians are political fanatics, imbued with rage and violence.
No, it is not. Welcome to FR.
I did not ask for it and I do not want any of it.
Gentle hint: Try to know at least a little about what you spew about. Saves embarrassment.
You are beginning to see the light of what Iran, the Middle East and Islam is all about.
They shout “Allah Akbar” from the rooftops because the regime that oppresses them now used the very same tactic 30 years ago when it seized power.
They are spitting in the theocracy's eye and calling for it's downfall.
You nailed it. It is so refreshing to see an accurate assessment of the situation. I am tearing my hair out at the dewey-eyed sentimentalism on this thread. These Iranians are cut from the same cloth as the mobs that took over our Embassy in 1979 and paraded around our crashed helicopters and the bodies of US servicemen. Don’t mind the backlash you may get here, you are 100% right.
Not sure who you are, but I know what you are, and that’s all that matters.
I think you are possibly the only one here that understands the true nature of what is going on in Iran, and how idiotic our “Congress” is to favor riots and destruction of property as a proper method of “political” protest, which is no different than the same kinds of riots in France, Germany, Belgium, and Scandinavia. How come they did not protest those governments “repressing” those riots... I mean demonstrations? They were done by the same kind of people (Muslims) for the same reason (to have things their way.)”
If anyone thinks these riots are about freedom, thy have no idea what freedom is or what Islam is.
Appreciated your post.
