Dramatic footage has emerged of Iranians mobbing the car of Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to complain about poverty and hunger.
The remarkable show of civil disobedience occurred during what was intended as a routine tour last week of the southern city Bandar Abbas.
As the president waves to crowds, standing in the cars sunroof, an elderly man is shown holding on to the front hand side of the car shouting Im hungry, Im hungry.
Panicked bodyguards eventually manage to usher him away but as their backs are turned a young veiled woman leaps onto the bonnet and then sits on the cars roof, gesticulating as she makes her point to Mr Ahmadinejad.

One of these days, the people will prevail, Mahout and your scrawny a** will hanging from a minaret.
Too bad they didn’t overpower his security, and drag the chimpanzee screaming from his vehicle and viciously beat, stab and stomp him to death.
Rebellion in Iran should really be encouraged.
Actually I expect that’s coming. This seems to be the first such story that’s made it over here but the mideast news guys have had a fairly regular string of stories along this line, not as dramatic but building. Al Jazeera english, Mosaic, Deutsche Welle and a few others get bits and pieces out of Iran, as with Syria-——Maybe we can call this “the coming Persian Spring.”
I think you’re right. When it does, I hope what results is an improvement in Iran — more pro-western, and not yet another muslim-brotherhood dominated system.
Poor guy! What Iran needs is a Community Organizer, that will change things for sure. They think its bad now?
Well-fed people, many blinded by Islam, rose up against the Shah.
Some prescriptions for, hopefully, not too distant future:
They should be storming billionaire mullahs’ houses and fortresses in Iran. Take lessons from the French Revolution, remember the Bastille & the fate of Louis XVI...
Ahmadinejad is a nobody, for now.
They should then burn down the *Holey* city of Qom - that would be a great start.
Followed by spitting on Khomeini’s grave in his grand mausoleum, just to get rid of some additional frustration. He was the one who promised free electricity, petrol and what not.
His mausoleum, I suspect, will eventually be turned into a museum for the crimes of the Islamic Republic against Iran and her people.
This part of Iranian history should be documented in detail in history books, and kept alive in the minds of generations to come, not only in Iran, but also outside.
A personal copy should be sent to James Earl Cart Jr. as a souvenir, signed “With Love, from Iran”. Another unsigned one should be kept in the Library of Congress; Billy Clinton & Barack Hussein Obama should read it thoroughly & frequently - you know, lead by example...
Every foreign Head of State visiting Iran should spend some time in that museum.
Oh.. they should dedicate a public holiday named Islamic Republic Day (like Bastille Day), celebrate it each year with jubilation, while handing out sweets such as Gaz & Sohaan...
Since my mother’s family is from Yazd (which is very famous for its delicious cakes & sweets such as Gaz, Qottab, Pashmak, etc..) - I’d be delighted to have some organized for public distribution, when the time is right!
James Earl Cart Jr. = James Earl Carter Jr.
“They should then burn down the *Holey* city of Qom - that would be a great start.”
Except where they make sohan
Sohaan, traditionally, comes from/belongs to Isfahan (Esfahan), next door to Yazd, not Qom!
Gotta remember that Qom was built after Isfahan by muzzie arabs - Qom is really an “interim” town.
Isfahan, however, is known as “half the world” (ness fe jahan)! lol... am not kidding.
All sohan factories (that make it with butter, not oil) should be sacred. (just finished a tin...Yum)
Am w/ you on Sohan factories & details.
odds, Thank you for the ping. Great article nuconvert. May the time soon approach for those who control Iran to be placed in the fire.
