Skip to comments.Iran's Democratic Moment
Posted on 12/11/2009 5:34:15 PM PST by nuconvert
A month ago, Gen. Muhammad-Ali Aziz Jaafari, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard, vowed to stop further antiregime demonstrations in Iran and break what he termed "this chain of conspiracies." But this week the "chain" appeared to be as strong as ever: Students across the nation defied the general and his political masters by organizing numerous demonstrations on and off campus.
The various opposition groups that constitute the pro-democracy movement have already called for another series of demonstrations on Dec. 27, a holy day on the Muslim Shiite calendar. Meanwhile, the official calendar of the Islamic Republic includes 22 days during which the regime organizes massive public demonstrations to flex its muscles. Since the controversial presidential election last June, the pro-democracy movement, in a jujitsu-style move, has used the official days to undermine the regime.
On Jerusalem Day, Sept. 18, officially intended to express anti-Semitism, the opposition showed that Iranians have no hostility toward Jews or Israel. One popular slogan was "Neither Hamas nor Hezbollah! I give my life for Iran!" Another was "Forget about Palestine! Think about our Iran!"
On Nov. 4, the anniversary of the seizure of the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979, the opposition distanced itself from the regime's anti-American rhetoric.

thanx for posting that
It was read to me on the phone. Should be posting soon on AntiMullah Multilingual.
For the first time, the tenor of the words and attitude seemed to be that of a leader/commander.
AntMullah will be focusing on Farsi language articles or bilingual, often with a link on the Main Page to the Farsi as we notice more bilingual visits.
IncLuding vitipurative diatribe comments emanating from pro-Mullah regime CUMMUNIST sources spewing sheer hatred for America.
Remember the Communist Chomsky (his mentor) link to Akbar Ganji the Mullah infiltrator who pretended (as per MOIS - Ministry of Information and Security standard operating procedure to create bullet proof backgrounds) for their operatives.
There seems to be an upsurge in Islamic-Communist coordinated, defensive or aggressive attacks on anyone or site which fails to support Marxist or Islamic ams, philosophy or simply desires.
Round up the communists and execute them. They are a cancer...
Thank you for your efforts to keep us all informed. My thoughts and prayers are with the People of Iran fighting against this truly dangerous regime! May God protect all who fight on the side of Liberty, Truth, and Justice.
