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

Signs and Rumors

In a possible indication that the Khamenei camp is preparing to make concessions, the daughter of Akbar Rafsanjani, was freed today. Four more of his relatives were released from custody as well. They had been picked up from protests on Saturday. It is a long standing tradition in the region, going back to ancient times, that members of political families would be taken as hostages, or for ransom, to keep the opposition in line. The fact that they were released may be evidence that the Khamenei faction is crumbling under the pressure. One obstacle may be ready to fall. The release could also be evidence of a deal between the factions, a circling of the wagons, realizing that what is happening on the street is no longer about replacing Igogettajob with Mousavi, but with tearing down the theocracy entirely.

Today, Israel Matsav republished the text of an interview from CNN with a student named Mohammed (read it all here), the best evidence yet out of Iran that my assertions about the nature of the protest movement are correct. This is a freedom movement, not about replacing one mullah with another (which Schlussel is still tearing her hair out over...I think she's off her meds, or just not paying attention because she hates Muslims that much. Either way I hope she publishes a picture of her bald head after all the hair is gone).

I don't typically do reposts like this, but this testimony is stirring. Marack talked about reaching out to the Islamic world. Here is our best chance to take on something moving beyond theocracy, and Marack is doing nothing...quelle surprise! Pay attention Debbie, if you can deflate your ego long enough to stop thinking you and Mossad are on the same page, and hear and see what is happening. And, if you're going to stick to your obtuse guns, you might want to openly call Netanyahu an idiot since he's called this a freedom movement as well.
Let me tell you something. For about three decades our nation has been humiliated and insulted by this regime. Now Iranians are united again one more time after 1979 Revolution. We are a peaceful nation. We don’t hate anybody. We want to be an active member of the international community. We don’t want to be isolated… We don’t deny the Holocaust. We do accept Israel’s rights. And actually, we want — we want severe reform on this structure. This structure is not going to be tolerated by the majority of Iranians. We need severe reform, as much as possible.


Americans, European Union, international community, this government is not definitely — is definitely not elected by the majority of Iranians. So it’s illegal. Do not recognize it. Stop trading with them. Impose much more sanctions against them. My message…to the international community, especially I’m addressing President Obama directly – how can a government that doesn’t recognize its people’s rights and represses them brutally and mercilessly have nuclear activities? This government is a huge threat to global peace. Will a wise man give a sharp dagger to an insane person? We need your help international community. Don’t leave us alone.


More than 85% of Iran’s gasoline is imported from foreign countries. I think international communities must sanction exporting gasoline to Iran and that might shut down the government.
Unfortunately Mohammed, the resident of the United States has so far committed to waiting for the regime you are fighting to break your movement and leave you all for dead. You are far better off appealing to Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has recognized your movement for what it is. What our Dear Leader will most likely do is sit on sidelines until either the government breaks your movement, or it is near achieving success. Then he'll either step in and condemn the regime for killing you, or take credit for leading the movement as if it was all his idea.

Like I said, appeal to Israel. Netanyahu wants to help you. Chazak chazak!
