(AGI) - Jerusalem, 1 July - Six persons who had demonstrated against the regime of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have reportedly been hanged in Iran, reported the Jerusalem Post, based on a telephone call with a source in Tehran.

The hanging would have taken place in Mashhad.

The news hasn't been confirmed, but the same source quote a sermon delivered by ayatollah Hadi Gafouri in which he urges protesters to be careful because they are risking their lives.

Although the article claims that the demonstrations are dying down and the amount of Twitter traffic is down, this will not go away.

Poor Persian people, they need our prayers.

So it has now become a capital crime to disagree with election fraud? That’s the way to win support. /s

The government of Iran has become undeniably illegitimate.

“Poor Persian people, they need our prayers.”

But, wouldn’t that be considered meddling??

Militant

There are going to be many people disappearing over there. You know they are on video tape. The facist (Obama supported) regime is going to murder thousands of them.

They really needed to go ahead and get it on, once they stepped into the streets.

I went over to the Jerusalem Post and found nothing in the on-line version. That said it was reported as coming from a phone report from Iran.

It is believeable, they are desperate to stay in power. Evil men.

Coming to an American city near you!

Wait until Obama decides we all need to sign a loyalty oath...to him.

Well, if they’ll shoot people, they’ll hang them.

It does sound typical of this type of regime.

There were some reports yesterday of 2000 people arrested, and 1000 people killed.

It will be some time before there is a clear picture of what is happening.

I hope somebody got video or a pic of it because the world needs to see it.

That's my concern: being driven as a popular uprising, the protests will just fizzle out. There is no viable plan being executed, just random yelling; as such people eventually get tired and have to return to their lives. So long as the mullahs can withstand the onslaught, the storm will wane and their subjects return to their chains.

The American Revolution, and others like it (China), succeeded because there was a long-term organized committment to planned success. Some revolts succeed because the powers that be do succumb to the onslaught (Romania, France), but those required a direct, er, hands-on approach. Iran is just about lots of yelling; people get tired of yelling, and those being yelled at come to ignore it.

The rioters, unwilling to do the same, can only lose.

This is still impossible to predict. The citizens are not armed, or it would not be like this.

All it would take for this to go-off is for 1 Military commander to defect. It would then be on.

Or outside arms smuggled in, would bring on a gorilla war that could escilate.

The election was clearly a fraud, and everyone knows it.

Islamic governments like Communism can only exist with repression. Nature of the beast.

Freedom is incompatible with dictatorial government.

I agree. Still, if the protesters do turn violent, the government could point to it to justify even worse actions. It’s a sticky situation.

If we manage to get obama out of the white house and Palin in,we need to have something like the OSS of WWII to help give support to pro democracy/anti islamic movements worldwide

Methinks the six hanged might not view the situation as “sticky”. Statistics mean nothing when they happen to you.

Governments in general exist because the people decide the price of submission is better than the price of opposition. So long as the protesters believe this, they’ll lose.

Those who decide “to this we devote our lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” win. Those who don’t, lose.

Dig up the many past threads to wit “what good is a handgun against an army” and other “all I need to win is a rock to obtain heavy artillery with” posts. The ability is there; the will is not.

Indeed, one commander (with willing troops) defecting would change everything. This is often considered critical to a revolution’s success: that the oppressor’s forces not be uniformly loyal.

I hear ya. Stoning seems to be a big favorite too, when it comes to their women.

I know what you mean.  Look, all I'm saying is that if the protests remain peaceful, the protesters can't be faulted by anyone.  If they want world support, I think it's best they go on general strikes, march in the streets and do other productive things that let the goverment know it's days are numbered.

I don't want this to reach the level where most people would say, "Well, if they were doing that here they'd get the same thing."
