    The Woodward Report ^ | December 29, 2009
    The US administration is heading towards placing "paralyzing" sanctions on Iran, Israeli Ambassador to Washington Michael Oren said Tuesday. Speaking to Army Radio, Oren added that although it was "too early," the US had also not yet abandoned the military option. "The Americans attribute the highest importance to the Iranian issue," he said during the interview. "The US, along with other countries, is preparing to impose paralyzing sanctions on [Iran], and preparations are happening even now." Oren went on to reject claims that US President Barack Obama was trying to downgrade relations between Washington and Jerusalem, saying, "The man is...

    Mideast: As the death of a dissident cleric spawns renewed protests, Sen. John Kerry seeks to make nice with the oppressors of those who truly deserved the Nobel Peace Prize. How about regime change, Senator? The death toll from the brutal suppression of the latest round of Iranian protests against their government has reached double digits. We wonder if the senator still wants to be the highest U.S. official to visit Tehran since U.S. hostages were held for 444 days by the very same regime. To Kerry and this administration, the problem is one of mistrust and misunderstanding. Come, let...

    Debka has an exclusive report on the Iranian uprising http://www.debka.com/article.php?aid=1416 covering the key players of the insurgency, the death tolls and the various sides. One question that comes to mind reading all of the information on the resistance movement (not Debka) is whether extremists are trying to hijack the resistance movement. After all, Mousavi was a Revolutionary leader of the last Ayatollah. From the Debka Report: "The current upsurge of violence across Iran is the most dangerous yet because for the first time demonstrators are turning round to attack security forces, the Revolutionary Guardsmen and Basijj paramilitaries.

    On Saturday night in Tehran, members of a pro-government militia broke into a mosque where former President Mohammad Khatami, a reformist leader, was speaking, forcing him to break off before concluding his remarks. As my colleague Nazila Fathi reports, “about 50 vigilantes armed with chains, batons and pepper spray disrupted a speech by Mr. Khatami at Jamaran Mosque in Tehran, the home mosque of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the spiritual leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution.”

    Here's my latest post for NewsReal. When Iranian lovers of liberty and democracy decided that the mad Mullahs had persecuted, tortured and killed them long enough, and organized protest after protest against their rule, you expected America to come out in support of them. After all, the “land of the free and the home of the brave” has always been an example and inspiration to all those who love freedom. Sadly, no word of support came from the White House. Instead of praising the brave Iranians protesting against the Islamo-fascist thugs who have oppressed them for three decades already, President...

    TEHRAN - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has warned the West that it must not assume that Iran is a divided society as the country faced some demonstrations following the June presidential election. "The Western politicians think something happening in Iran and Iran has become weakened. That is a mistake. They do not know Iran. The people of Iran are united and they would certainly defend rights and interests," Ahmadinejad explained. The president also added the West must not think that Iran's position has been weakened in defending its legal rights as it faces some opposition at home by some groups. "There...

    Washington, 28 December (WashingtonTV)-Iranian authorities have declared martial law in the city of Najafabad, the hometown of the dissident cleric Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, who died last week, a pro-reform website reported on Sunday. The Rahesabz website said that at 9 pm local time [17:30 GMT], security forces used loudspeakers to announce martial law and asked citizens not to leave their homes. The declaration was the first since the 1978-79 Islamic revolution overturned the former Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. The declaration came as security forces clashed with protesters across Iran, who were making use of the Shiite holy day...

    There are signs that the opposition leaders are no longer in control of the anti-government elements.

Chants of slogans against government officials and some religious leaders were heard in Tehran. Police say deadly force was not used to disperse the protesters, adding that the deaths are under investigation. Confirming the violent...

    Today, the Islamic regime in Iran faces what could be a perfect storm. A respected opposition leader is being mourned, it is the most holy day of the year for Shiites, and the pro-democracy Green Movement is more energized and radicalized than ever. The spirit of liberation is alive and well. ...One of our New Year's wishes is that peaceful change comes to Iran, but the regime will do everything in its power to prevent that from happening. Hopefully the reform movement will reach critical mass before the Islamic regime's nuclear program does.
