And a curious fact about these Basij thugs is being kept muzzled too:
The mullah’s sockpuppet Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was a TRAINER of the Basij during the eight year Iraq-Iran War, when children were recruited into the Basij for the purpose of being human mine sweepers for the Iranian army.
The children were given little plastic keys that were hung around their necks, and told that when they died on the battlefield, that the keys would admit them into the presence of ‘allah’ in ‘paradise’.
Ahmadinejad’s political power base IS the Basiji, and he’s proud of it.
Funny that nobody in the media seems willing to remind the public both in and outside of Iran of this fact.
Have you seen Persepolis? That very act was shown in the movie. Damn good movie too!
