Comments on: Egypt takes no chances over Iran-inspired demonstration Beyond the World news headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:09:42 +0000 hourly 1 By: Sam Fri, 03 Jul 2009 10:09:09 +0000 Power to the people…
Iranians dared to take to the streets in their millions to let the world know that the government does not represent them. As one Iranian describes it: “We got beaten, shot, knifed and bladed. Most of us came back. Some of us did not. They made us pay to get their bodies back and denied us the permission to hold burial ceremonies for them. They took thousands of us as prisoners in the streets. They identified hundreds more through their spies and spy cameras. Some were taken from their beds at night and some from their universities, breaking doors down and destroying everything in their way. These innocent prisoners are being tortured in the most brutal way RIGHT NOW to confess to having been a spy for any country they choose to blame. Most would rather die under torture than confess to such lies. Some will probably be too weak to have a choice and will read out whatever they get given”.

These people need our support now or it could be the end of people power in that region for many years to come.

He effectively announced himself “The new Shah” and “above the law” ! This is the kiss of death for the Islamic Republic!
History foretold:
1- Demonstrator will carry on…
2- Many unarmed and innocent people will continue to be attacked and murdered…
3- Another 4 to 5 years of oppression, attack and murder of the “activists” will follow…
4- The Spirit of IRANIAN NATION will make them rise up again and destroy the corrupt Islamic kingdom.

Hopefully, Khamenei will remember that he’s the head of the Islamic REPUBLIC of Iran. Republic: a state ruled by the will of the PEOPLE. But, like most despots, they’ll simply attempt to legitimize(ostensibly) their usurpation of the people’s will.
