From Twitter...

"...chants are so loud that it feels like the city is going to explode. People are VERY VERY angry!"

People are furious at the Iranian government, after all the rigging and butchering they have done. I've also heard that the mullahs have been moving money out of Iran. They are clearly panicking.

WE MUST STAND WITH THE FREEDOM-LOVING IRANIANS!!!!!!!! THE TIME IS NOW!!!!!!!

Why would the mullahs want to move their money out of Iran?

I thought the end of the world was upon us and with it should go all the money.

“How recent is this twit from Iran?”

Well, it looks like it just started showing up today. People have been chanting from the rooftops for awhile now, but it’s gotten FAR more intense tonight, due to the government confirming the election for Ahmadinejad.

That Obamah speech in Cairo really inspired the Persians! ...or maybe it did not!

Thank you. There have been a lot of posted Iran updates that represent doings from a week ago. I hope they continue the protests, and I wish there was something more we could do. Ever feel like a revolutionary that doesn’t have access to the battle?

I’m sorry, but I am of the opinion that these people are NOT “Freedom Loving”.

When they are ready to jettison, not just the current flavor of repression, but the Mohamedan Death Cult imposed on them hundreds of years ago, then I’ll believe it.

Meanwhile, they still pay homage and obeisance to the malevolent, murdering, thieving, raping, pillaging, lying, pedophile, polygamist pirate, Mohammed.

There is NO nation I know of where the teachings of this malignancy prevail and freedom as we know it coexist.

Yep! I wish there was more we could do, too! The best I’ve been able to do is contact my Congressman and Senators, but I’ve received no reply.

It’s like our government (and most of the people in our country) really don’t care about what’s going on in Iran. These people are being slaughtered and begging us for help, but we sit back and do nothing! It’s a shame! It really is!

Although I do think our country should speak against the murdering of protestors, there isn’t going to be any freedom in Iran no matter which of the candidates is ultimately the winner.

Unfortunately, there isn’t enough support to pull this one off. While there are a lot of people yelling in Tehran for regime change, seems they’re pretty much limited to the “student” class (English-speaking Twitter-using types) - the message is not sufficiently penetrating other social strata, and is not spreading much beyond Tehran, and is not pervading the military/police enough to make the movement successful. While there was voter fraud, there wasn’t enough to make/break the election - Ahmadinijad won however the votes are legitimately counted. And whoever wins, the Supreme Leader and his mullahs remain in power - the “president”, whoever he is, comes from a pool approved by those who really hold power.

Not looking good for the “green mob” there.

I’m not really sure what “freedom” they’re fighting for.
I’m not even convinced there was anything wrong with the election.

If you can explain, I’d like to hear. I started out enthusiastic about things there, but as I research it my enthusiasm wanes.

They are also shouting “Death To Islamic Rule”. So, why don't you come over from Obama’s side to that of those that side with freedom?

Oh, believe, me I am not on Obama’s side AT ALL. I despise him and everything he stands for.

However, I am not on Mohammed’s side either. I despise him and everything he stands for. Ergo I cannot lend support to yet another anti-American, anti-Jew, anti-Israel, Iranian “Revolution”.

> They are also shouting “Death To Islamic Rule”.

When I hear them shouting “Death to Islam” and “Death to Marxism”, I’ll know they’ve got it.

They are seeking freedom from corruption, and freedom from mostly elderly and certainly fundamentalist mullahs who are intent on denying Iranians the ability to progress and function as a modern secular society.

Iran is largely a very youthful country. The internet has made them well aware of the opportunities available to other muslim countries around them, such as the Gulf States, Iraq and Turkey - not to mention in the USA and Europe (where a fair number of Iranians have traveled).

I think the mullahs are finding it hard to keep them down on the farms, after they’ve seen Paree.

So what’s their “exit strategy”? I’m seeing a lot of yelling, but no indication of anything ready to replace the mullahs. The guy they’re hollering for isn’t much different from Ahmadenijad, and was on the ballot because he’s acceptable to the mullahs.

You despise Obama while standing with him regarding Iran. Then, when the Iranians mouth the very words you long to hear, you move the goal posts so that freedom never wins with you.

How can you call this rebellion “ anti-american” when the struggle for self-determination is the very essence of the American Revolution?

Look, I stand with 0bama concerning things like Pedophilia is a CRIME, okay?

I suspect you do too.

That doesn’t make me an 0bama proselyte.

But I’m not going to lend any support to yet another bunch of towelhead Amercia-haters that follow after the polygamous pedophile Jew-hating pirate, either.

If 0bama and I are on the same side of that issue, it’s probably for different reasons. I’m sure he’s perfectly ok with the raping murdering malignancy of Islam, BUT I’M NOT!

Let me ask you something.

If these Iranian “Revolutionaries” are actually able to implement their vision, will you be able to PREACH CHRIST in Iran? Will you be able to build churches and synagogues? Will you be able to hand out gospel tracts in the streets?

Will people be able to say, “You know, the only reason I was ever a Muslim was because I was born into it. I’m going to change my faith and leave Islam,” without being KILLED?

Will any artist or commentator be able to poke fun at the malevolent mohammed the way Christ is mocked and despised without having riots and murders in Iran the way they rioted and murdered over the stupid Danish mohammed cartoons?

If not, they can take their “Revolution” and stick it.

I say let them have a fair election- once they figure out they can have a fair election, the next step will be to become more critical of the positions of the candidates. The candidates may also become attentive to the concerns of the electorate and mindful of the need to represent the people if they know the people vote them into office and can vote them out.

Under the present system- what incentive does ahamnutjob have to represent the people? None. He’s in, no matter how they vote.

And- here’s hoping the people ordering the butchery of the street protesters face justice.

Among those protesting in the streets are thousands of Assyrian Christians whom only want to attend church in their own country without being hassled or killed by the regime that you and Obama won't take a stand against for your own short-sighted reasons.

The answer to all your questions is the same: yes. So, how about if help those people get free first and then you can work on teaching them how to speak in tongues?

But Mousavi and Rafsanjani are every bit the fanatical Mohamedan lunatics as the Khamenei clan and Amahdi-jihad.

They all hate the Jews, they all want to eradicate Israel, they all want to continue pursuing nuclear weapons development and deployment, AND THEY ALL PROMOTE ISLAMIC SUPREMACY AND WOLRD HEGEMONY!

How can these flaming mohamedan LUNATICS ever support anything even CLOSE to what you and I call FREEDOM?

The Assyrian Christians will continue to feel the oppression of their Mohamedan masters, REGARDLESS of the name at the helm.

They are all the same thing! They are all just fighting over who gets to drive the lunatic bus!

Boris Yeltsin was a flaming lunatic communist apparatchik and yet he brought down the USSR.

Persians don't hate Jews. They freed them from captivity. The Bible tells me so.

I’ve been to Russia four times since the dissolution of the Soviet Union. I was there before and after the dissolution of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Russia is still ruled by tyrants and does not have anything like the Religious Liberty we take for granted here in the States. Only certain denominations are recognized by the Russian Federation and ALL of them are subordinate to the Russian Orthodox Church.

Not as severe as the proselytes of the pedophile polygamist pirate and foaming tyrant mohammed, but not a showpiece of Religious Liberty, either.

> Persians don’t hate Jews. They freed them from captivity.
> The Bible tells me so.

Either I missed that, or we are reading different Bibles. The Jew-hating prime minister of Ancient Persia, Haman, was able to get the King Atarxerxes to sign a warrant calling for the EXTERMINATION OF ALL JEWS throughout the Persian Empire, from India to Ethiopia.

Sound familiar? Some things never change.

The only thing that saved the Jews from the ancient Persian prime minister’s plot was that Artaxerxes discovered that he was MARRIED to a Jew, Esther.

What would save them from a prime minister appointed by one of these raving mahommedan lunatics, such as Rafsanjani or Mousavi?

And remember, Mousavi was isntrumental in establishing Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Jordan (”palestine”). He was also instrumental in the planning and execution of the bombing of the American Marine barracks in Lebanon.

Until he apologizes for that, and asks forgiveness for it, he and his “Revolution” are about as welcome to me as Khomeini and his “Revolution”.
