Even Jews Cry For Muslims
Any Reputation For Iran's Cleric Gov't is Now Lost
Neda Agha-Soltan didn't need to die. She is one of many victims in Iran's elections of 2009. The persons may be fatalities & casualties, victims of Basij shootings, tear gas poisoning or just intimidation. All of the above are harmful, acted-upon logical fallacies instigated by the currently (and obviously) tyrannical Iranian clerical government in response to widespread discontent.
That which the current government of Iran is trying to prevent (civil unrest, disobedience, and government dis-credibility) is being inversely exacerbated by their response to that which has, and is, happening. In short--that which they are trying to prevent is occurring more so because of the hard-line government's actions. If they Iranian government's criticism and oppressive behavior towards the protests weren't so totalitarian, the global criticism for that which they are now enduring wouldn't had been so great. If the government had even just ignored the protests, then the backfire wouldn't had been so great.
I, even though a Jew, sheds tears over humanity's treatment of it's own persons, no matter what religion they are.
The Correlation of Truth and Tyranny
The widespread discontent that has been sitting in souls of the citizens
of this theocracy has finally boiled over. The generation that
is protesting died in the millions to clear landmines (via their
living bodies) during the decade long Iran-Iraq war. This is how the
Iranian government treats this generation? By refusing to acknowledge
that the generation who is next in line for leadership indeed has
something to say? This is how they treat the conscripts who died in such great numbers during the Islamic Revolution?
They cannot acknowledge their brothers and sisters who have another
point of view? Is their concept of Truth (with a capital T) so great
that they cannot acknowledge the people who actually fought to protect, empower and enlighten The Islamic Republic of Iran that exists today?
The primary point of the protests are great; you cannot build a wall big enough to surround persons who wish to state their mind. You cannot silence criticism if the person speaks loudly enough. You cannot prevent a person from acting when they feel what they are doing is right.
Tearing persons down, intimidating them, and threatening them with death will only backfire when they resist. The whole world has been watching how the Iranian government has reacted to the wide spread, relatively peaceful protests and all have noticed the government's iron fist which has solemnly worked against them in a more negative fashion than they have even begun to realize.
