“Tomorrow is a big day, maybe I’ll get killed tomorrow!” [Iran]
naicINsight (translated from Iranian blog) ^ | June 19, 2009 | unknown

Posted on 06/19/2009 4:00:24 PM PDT by PapaBear3625

“I will participate in the demonstrations tomorrow. Maybe they will turn violent. Maybe I will be one of the people who is going to get killed. I’m listening to all my favorite music. I even want to dance to a few songs. I always wanted to have very narrow eyebrows. Yes, maybe I will go to the salon before I go tomorrow! There are a few great movie scenes that I also have to see. I should drop by the library, too. It’s worth to read the poems of Forough and Shamloo again. All family pictures have to be reviewed, too. I have to call my friends as well to say goodbye. All I have are two bookshelves which I told my family who should receive them. I’m two units away from getting my bachelors degree but who cares about that. My mind is very chaotic. I wrote these random sentences for the next generation so they know we were not just emotional and under peer pressure. So they know that we did everything we could to create a better future for them. So they know that our ancestors surrendered to Arabs and Mongols but did not surrender to despotism. This note is dedicated to tomorrow’s children…”

And from the part about going to the salon to get eyebrows done, I'm guessing this is a woman.

I admire these Iranians courage, but unless the mullahs are overthrown it's just window dressing no matter if it's Ahmadinejad or Mousavi.

Either one are ruthless Shiite extremists who are part of an apocalyptic genocidal death cult.

Web support pours out for Iran protesters

"Google and Facebook have rushed out services in Farsi. Twitter users have changed their home cities to Tehran to provide cover for Internet users there. Others have configured their computers to serve as relay points to bypass Iranian censorship.

In the aftermath of the disputed Iranian election, Internet companies and individuals around the world have stepped in to help Iranians communicate and organize."......................

Their problems are a side effect of Islam. Islam is incompatible with progress. Islam is incompatible with democracy. Islam is incompatible with prosperity (unless you have billions of barrels of oil to hide the fact with).

If they exchange the rule of one cleric for another, they will soon be back where they started.

Maybe they will turn violent. Maybe I will be one of the people who is going to get killed.

I have a better idea, maybe you should arm your self and kill those son’s of bitches before they kill you. Cowards have no problem killing unarmed civilians, but like all bullies they turn and run in fear at the first sight of their own blood. Dead martyrs are useless.

Ah, but in Islam dead martyrs are anything but useless. There are indications that some Iranians may be arming themselves. Other indications are that the army & police will not fire on their own people (but, yes we must remember Tienanmen).

These people are doing what they can to fight for freedom.

They know that many Americans (and people throughout the world) are with them. That is one of the great things about the Internet. We can tell those who are fighting for freedom — and many of them *do* believe in freedom, they reference OUR Constitution as what they want for themselves. These are educated people who have read our Constitution. They clearly see what is wrong with Iran.

Wish we had sent them guns. Lots of guns. That’s what they need. It’s a shame they’re going to go face-to-face with Imanutjob’s henchmen unarmed. That lunatic has no qualms whatsoever about killing as many people as needed to achieve his ends.

The wild card is going to be the Iranian Army. Many of the conscripts in the ranks are the friends and relatives of the people doing the protesting. All it will take is one officer deciding to leave the armory door unlocked...

Yeah, well said.

I did not join the Hallelujah chorus on this deal.

I think that unless there is a real revolution, then they get Iran/Mullah light.

I am also aware that some of these people, or at least their parents and grandparents held American citizens for 444 days.

Even if they were not in the embassy as such, thousands were in the streets screaming for death to America.

I remember.

I’ve been pleasantly surprised at HuffPost’s coverage as well. I think they see the rebels as “progressives”. Perhaps they are. I think a lot of them just want to be free.

PersianKiwi (among others) is reporting that cell phone text messaging service is back. My suspicion is that the govt wants to find out who is going to send pro-rebellion messages, so they can be put on a list to be dealt with later.

Well, HuffPo knows that if the Iranian people overthrow the mullahcracy, Obama will get the credit for it and be seen as foresighted for having made the kiss-ass speech in Cairo. They also know that it doesn’t cost them anything to give lip service to supporting the students, but they’d pay big here in the US for *not* doing it. Y’know, since so many of the Kos and HuffPo wanks (iow, Obama supporters) are sanctimonious self-righteous lib larvae.

Transcript

Tomorrow is Saturday. Tomorrow is a day of destiny.

Tonight, the cries of Allah-o Akbar are heard louder and louder than the nights before.

Where is this place? Where is this place where every door is closed? Where is this place where people are simply calling God? Where is this place where the sound of Allah-o Akbar gets louder and louder?

I wait every night to see if the sounds will get louder and whether the number increases. It shakes me. I wonder if God is shaken.

Where is this place that where so many innocent people are entrapped? Where is this place where no one comes to our aid? Where is this place that only with our silence we are sending our voices to the world? Where is this place that the young shed blood and then people go and pray -- standing on that same blood and pray. Where is this place where the citizens are called vagrants?

Where is this place? You want me to tell you? This place is Iran. The homeland of you and me.

This place is Iran.

That is what I keep hoping for. Someone who is up high enough and has seen enough corruption to know that these are not religious men who will take them all out. If the Mullahs were gone the government will fall.
