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

Theocratic Audacity (UPDATE)

In his spin conference today, Marack was asked what the consequences should be for actions taken against the government so far (that would be the tear gassing, beatings, and killings part). Marack, limpwristed king of the wussies replied: ...the world is watching and Iran should understand how they handle the dissent generated internally will "help shape the tone" for Iran's future. When you read this blog you should just assume that my middle finger is always pointed at Marack.

In a move that is sure to inflame the people on the streets of Iran the mullahs, in what I can only see as an act of insanity, charged a family the equivolent of $3000 to repay the government for the bullet used to kill their son, Kaveh Alpur, who was shot in the head during the protests on Saturday. They were refusing to release his body until they paid the money. They finally released him however, when the family made it clear that they did not have that kind of money. The father, and Iran-Iraq war vet, was then told that he was not allowed to be buried inside the city. Kaveh's picture is now being displayed in the windows of businesses in the neighborhood in which he lived.

As I mentioned in the last post, public mourning has been banned. Mosques have been closed to funeral services. This decisiion comes in the wake of the killing of Neda Agha-Soltan, whose death has become an international symbol of the movement. The mullahs, aware of the status her slaying has achieved, do not want her funeral, or any others, to become a focal point for the protests. In 1979, funerals became rallying points that helped turn protests into full scale revolution.

Yeah, charging families for the bullets you killed their kids with, and preventing them from holding funerals...that won't piss anyone off. Personally, I think the mullahs have soiled their robes over this.

And speaking of audacity, read Caroline Glick's latest on the media's continuing Marack sycophantism, and the real "Obama Effect."

Thanks W.A.! Events are moving fast and furious. The schitzoid actions by the mullahs tells me they are unprepared, and did not foresee the results of their fraud. This autocratic hubris at its finest. These fascists, as you correctly describe them, had been holding the people down for so long that they thought they could just pass the fraud along and everyone would just nod their heads.

It is possible that there are segments among the factions that have come to realize that they themselves have done nothing but replace the Shah, with the Koran in their hands, and that they are no different. Perhaps some want to bring reform. But it's too late for that now. The mullahs must go if the Iranian people are to begin the ascent into freedom.

We are facing the same struggle in America; a government operating at a level of such corruption and hubris that they don't even pretend to hear us anymore. At what point will we rise up and demand our freedom, and take our republic back?

Obamasham's dhimmitude just won't do....Will it?....sigh...

Not if we want to achieve real freedom, justice, and equality, at home and abroad.

Demanding and offering subservience is never a good place to start.

I haven't been around my computer much so I've missed so many of these videos. I'll try to get some time later to catch up on everything. Thanks for putting this video up.

I saw portions of Obama's press conference. It was the usual tap dancing around on every question that was asked and he's trying hard to cover his bony ass for wussing out from making a denouncement regarding the phony election and the killing of these protesters. It looks like the media is getting a little fed up with Obama...finally. So, of course Obama sent out Axelrod to talk for him. Slime bucket.

Again, thanks for the video from Iran.
