Skip to comments.Merkel to the Mullahs: We Side with the Protesters
Posted on 06/22/2009 4:33:51 PM PDT by pissant
German chancellor Angela Merkel has urged the ruling regime in Tehran to allow a full recount of the disputed presidential elections of June 12. Germany sides with those Iranians who want to exercise their right to freedom of expression and assembly, Merkel declared on Sunday; making it one of the strongest messages sent by any Western leader to Iran so far. Chancellor Merkel also called on Tehran to allow peaceful demonstrations, to refrain from using force against protestors, and to release imprisoned opposition figures. Human and civil rights have to be fully respected, she stated. Merkel further demanded that restrictions placed on foreign media covering the widespread protests across Tehran and the rest of the country be lifted.

"Hey, Mullahs, peace be upon you, how's about coming over for barbeque???
Obama ate ice cream while Neda lost her dream
Used to be the Unites States that was the beacon of freedom.
David Ben Garion said years ago that Golda Meir had more balls than any member of his cabinet. Not the first or last time for that.
Funny how women have been showing more balls than men lately.
Angela Merkel has more prominent testicles than Barack Hussein 0bama, Jr.
That is before a Muslim was elected to lead the Country and who is loyal to the Nation of Islam.
Urkel sides with the mullahs or whoever can make HIM look good.
He is a disgrace.
Too bad she wasn’t born in this country, we could elect her President! Oh, wait minute......
That photo needs to be sent to every Persian group in this country
World leaders are shaming our Resident!
Angela Merkel grew up in then East Germany (born in the West, however her father was given a pastorship at a church 80km north of Berlin), thus she has seen firsthand the oppression of a totalitarian government.
A lot of similarities between the Iron Lady and die Eisenfrau.
His hair is sure turning gray quickly.
When you can’t even verbally support the intentions of people who want freedom and fair elections— what are you? What do you have to give the world?
I just want my president to say he supports freedom and justice— is that too much to ask?
We really have to let the rest of the world speak the words of truth and freedom?
How long before a German Chancellor has to come to the US and say in halting English: “I am an American” in support of the American people’s attempt to regain their freedom?
Mr. Obama, and the rest of the liberal leadership would do well to listen to those who grew up under totalitarianism, but I am not holding my breath.
Why not call for an honest recount. The U. S. does it all the time in cases of close elctions.
Hey, Pres. What’s good for America is good for Iran.
Get behind honesty...if you can.
Iran sits on the threshold of developed nuclear weapons; weapons that Muslims world-wide know will make America vulnerable. Will Muslims be emboldened to evoke more irresponsible and provocative behavior towards us here in our home? Will they exert stronger emotions that Israel has no right to exist? Remind yourself this week as you pray to your savior; a Jew.
Remind yourself that this week your anti-American Muslim President said "the danger of the war on terror is over." His anti-white, Muslim past drys on him like an invisible paste.
He lied. The war is just beginning."
Must be nice for Germany to have a leader. Sure wish we had one here instead of some dumb-ass community organizer.
Oburkel is for the mullahs. And the freaks at DU, KOS and Moveon are all against those fighting for their freedom. I think it has always been this way. The disordered freaks of the left only pretend to be for freedom. When Obama hits the fan, their true colors show and they are the real fascists.
It should be obvious to all by now, but regular folks are more interested in sports, TV, porn and American Idol. Too bad. We will all lose our freedom and prosperity because of the drones.
Well, it took a while to percolate to the surface but the lib/dem talking point finally sees the light of day
It’s not about America, it’s about Iran ... nope, freedom and liberty know no borders
Then WTF is with all the munchie breaks at the shoppe?
Merkel, Sarkozy and I don’t know where the Brits are, but, they have received singling out by the Iranian regime, so, they must be somewhat stalwart. But, they are feckless, while, we with and army on two sides have a Pres__ent that believes communism is the next great religion and 0bama is its prophet, does nothing and contemplates doing less.
I was of the opinion that this was an in house cat fight, but, it has taken a life of its own irrelevant to the two people at the top. This has become a struggle to take control of their own lives. I think I would like some caviar with my tea.
Sarah would have known what to say....
Of course, she doesn’t have delusions of grandeur of striking a grand bargain with maniacs.
Barack the Unready just can't comprehend that, now that he's president, that to the Ayatollahs and true believers American is still the Great Satan. Not sure his ego and ignorance will allow him to learn that.
Yep, Angie has bigger bells than the zero.
I am glad someone else has noticed this. I think its intentional, like clinton dyeing his to match the age group he spoke in front of. I think he is trying to look like he actually gives a crap about this country, and stopped using grecian formula.
I’m sure that between turns on the swingset and walking the dogs...Barry should be back on the smokes any day now.....
Maybe that’s the reason for the new Tabacco laws. He wants to regulate them into trouble then take them over so he can get free smokes. We’ve already got Obama Motors...Why not Obama Tabbacco Products?
I can see the commercials now........When you want to be smooth and cool like the President Smoke new OBAMA-KOOLS Menthols...
Oh my gosh, it is a waffle cone!
“We will all lose our freedom and prosperity because of the drones.”
I still have faith that the American spirit stills lives in enough of this to return our country to the freedom and honor of a republic. It will not be easy though. The real trick is to find the statesmen we need.
Far too late for a recount.
People directly involved reported receiving orders to destroy full ballot boxes the very same night of the election.
*sigh* to have a strong leader who isn’t afraid to speak the truth!
Of course the kind of statement we would expect from a grownup leader as oppose to hot air from the inexperienced One.
This job is way above his pay grade.
“Why not Obama Tabbacco Products?”
Will they have a picture of Big Brother(Obama) on the package like they did in 1984?
“I still have faith that the American spirit stills lives in enough of this to return our country to the freedom and honor of a republic. It will not be easy though. The real trick is to find the statesmen we need.”
Lets try this again.
I still have faith that the American spirit still lives in enough of us to return our country to the freedom and honor of a republic. It will not be easy though. The real trick is to find the statesmen we need.
0bama had two Muslim fathers.
0bama went to Koran memorization classes (mengaji) for four years in Indonesia
Bet he can cite the Koran better then he can the Bible.
Thank you, German chancellor Angela Merkel - we’re with you.
Hooray Angela Merkel!!!
