It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Send Lawyers, Guns, and Money

JPost has published testimony from sources in Iran regarding some of the methods being employed by the secret police against the protesters. If these sources are reliable, it's not pretty.
"The regime's agents have taken over the ambulances. Now whenever there are clashes, the hospital ambulances come to the scene. And instead of paramedics, plain-clothed agents [wearing white jackets] emerge and load up the people," one source said.
According to the same source, these ambulances have also been used to secretly transport the dead from earlier clashes and bury them.
"Many of the ambulances are leaving the city and coming back and then leaving the city again. It is obvious… The police, who guard [all exits leading out of the capital], let them pass without question after the driver waves at them…The regime is doing this to cover its bloody tracks."
As the Iranian authorities work to restore order, cameras and other monitoring equipment are being set up in on the main streets, especially Baharestan Square, the sources said.
Plain-clothes agents and special units have also been stationed in other parts of Teheran and are stopping people with injuries for questioning, to establish whether they were involved in protest rallies.
"My worker's son, who was beaten by the police a few days ago, had a bruise on his left cheek," said one source. "Today, when he was out on the streets, a plain-clothed government agent stopped him. The agent taunted him, asking him sarcastically whether he was heading to his next terrorist meeting. But the young man had the presence of mind to tell the agent that his father was angry with him and that the bruise on his face was from his father's hand."
A request to "the powers that be" on behalf of the rebellion in Iran: Send lawyers, guns, and money.
