Green Revolution Brewing: Iranian Time Bombs

2009/12/04


From Michael Ledeen’s report at Pajamas Media:

“They are receiving very strong support from leading clerics, above all Grand Ayatollah Montazeri, who declared the movement to be “the real representation of the legitimate demands of the majority of the Iranian nation, over many years.” And he delivered a fierce denunciation of the regime:

“Once again I emphasize and repeat, I warn the rulers that the way you are walking on, will bring nothing but damage and destruction not just to the religion, but also to the ‘earthly’ issues – both on yourselves and on the nation. Being loyal to the law and respecting the nation’s right is the best way to show a ruler’s good will. Selfishness, greed, domination and the acts of violence against the nation – the irreligious & illegal show trials of respected politicians, and the heavy sentences for them, will have the outcome of isolation of the country and the system in the world. And puts even more distance between the people and the rulers, and is destroying the face of the ‘oppressed Islam’. And in the end it will bring God’s anger.”

“Which pretty much sums it up. The wrath of God. Will it fall Monday?”

Please read Mr Ledeen’s report. You can also follow-up via Iran News Digest, Iran News Now and Enduring America.

Iran’s freedom movement has useful parallels to America’s Tea Party movement… both reflect the importance of return to Liberty when Tyranny fails to deliver on it’s promises. I’m interested as well because the present regime (in Iran) is a prime sponsor of terrorism; The ramifications of such an event may effect the situations in neighboring Afghanistan and Iraq – and yeah, here at home.
