Iranian Rebellion: linear or meandering?

Popular rebellions throughout history have proved extremely difficult to gauge. Pundits and politicians attempt to project their final results. Often sparked by dour economic conditions combined with repressive governmental actions, rebellions open the portals for inundations of demands for economic and social transformations.

The French Revolution started when peasants' crops failed leading to famine. Decades of deficit spending precluded the ability of King Louis the Fourteenth's regime from doing much to alleviate the suffering. The knowledge of the aristocracy's opulence sparked the peasantry's rage. Intermingling with this anger, advocates of the Enlightenment, enthralled with novelties called representative democracy and liberty, joined the anti-monarchical chorus. The fervor eventually led to verbal and physical assaults on Catholic installations and clergy. The urge to overthrow all peripherals of the system even lead to abolition of the Christian calendar and its replacement by a week of ten days and a year that started on the day of the autumnal equinox.

The Russian Revolution grew out of opposition to Czar Nicholas the Second's decision to enter the First World War. Political minorities, factions of Marxism, anarchism and capitalism, became involved in the opposition to the monarchy; they disagreed on what form of government should replace it but all openly pushed for the end of the Czarist autocracy. Eventually, the totalitarianism of the Bolsheviks replaced the autocracy of the Czar. This upheaval led to fundamental changes such as the full-scale oppression of the Orthodox Christian Church and its institutions, even its calendar which the monarchy had used for centuries.

At the present, the world is watching the tumult occurring in Iran. After thirty years under a totalitarian government, the Islam-based oppression is chafing some teens and twenty-somethings. Despite the mullahs' efforts to isolate Iranians, increased ease of communication with the Free World has allowed the penetration of non-Islamic concepts. During the street protests, women have dared to pull back their legally-mandated head-coverings to un-Islamic standards, if not remove them completely. Reports indicate that demonstrators have yelled, "Death to the dictator!" and "Death to Khamenei!" If those have been occurring, the rebellion exceeds a mere burst of outrage by devotees of a candidate who lost an election. The suicide bombing of the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the revolution which installed the Islamic regime, carries profound significance. That act of violence may portend opposition to the entire theocracy, not simply to the loony figurehead who holds the position of President of the Islamic regime.

Some question Mir Mousavi's alleged reformist agenda. Considering that politicians truly antipathic toward Islamic regime are never permitted to seek offices in the government, such skepticism is warranted. Therefore, one can rightfully question Mousavi's commitment to advocate for personal freedom and legitimate democracy in Iran.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad never attempted to hide his mental instability. He openly denies the Nazi genocide directed at Jews. He leaves a seat vacant just in case a supposed messianic figure called the "Twelfth Imam" happens to stop by wherever Ahmadinejad is making a public appearance. He actually says with a straight face that Iran wants a nuclear energy program for strictly peaceful purposes. How can any sane person justify the pursuit of nuclear technology for energy production in a country which is one of the largest exporters of petroleum in the world? I suppose Ahmadinejad expects that the "Twelfth Imam" will provide some sort of rational explanation or just bring the nuclear weapons himself, rendering the secretive program obsolete.

No one knows how this tumult will resolve itself. The theocrats in Iran may unleash a torrent of violence to crackdown on the protestors. However, that could possibly fan the blames of opposition causing undecided Iranians to side with the anti-regime forces. Middle Eastern experts might try to predict the outcome yet they have limited access to current developments inside Iran. Intelligence agencies of various countries are undoubtedly extracting all possible information that their agents can obtain. Nevertheless, a multitude of surveillance technology and inside sources cannot provide perfect clairvoyance and clairaudience. In the end, we will only know the fate of Iran after the demonstrations have concluded, either victoriously or in vain.

Videos of Islamic Infection of the Free World

Here is a video from Arkansas of an Islamist spouting anti-Jewish and anti-American lies plus the usual Islamic disinformation. This occurred on the day of the memorial service for Private William Long who was murdered by one of her fellow savages. Her vehicle is a Toyota minivan, license plate is from Louisiana, number PNE 729. If you see her, yell the pro-violence, anti-Jewish and anti-Christian Koranic verses at her:

Here is one from the Czech Republic. An undercover crew of journalists infiltrated a mosque. They expose a Czech Mohamadan denying the existence of misogynistic and violent Koranic verses despite having them read to him and justified by a Islamic cleric.

Religious Indoctrination Led to Murder

A murder occurring this week has not caused a huge nation-wide outrage that it merits. A blatant act of terrorism occurred in the United States, in broad daylight and front of witnesses that demonstrates the gall of the murderer. A violent religious fanatic fatally shot a man simply because that man had training in and engaged in a legal profession. Granted, the victim’s form of employment has raised controversy in some narrow-minded social circles. Although these virulent critics would viciously accuse the victim of engaging in murder, he had not done so under any definition of American jurisprudence. The victim was never arrested for nor charged with any homicides. Despite those circumstances, a blood-thirsty zealot assumed the role of judge, jury and executioner.

American society cannot survive such unapologetic aggression based on a malevolent ideology masquerading as religion. Apparently, this assassin believes that he had divine sanction for his blatant and pre-meditated murder. Undoubtedly, he will defend his action by quoting his faith’s scriptures. This trial will display the oppressive bigotry of the murder’s ilk, bent on imposing their despotic theocracy on the entire United States of America. People who cherish the freedom to live their lives without the shackles of the murderer’s hateful constraints can no longer remain silent. Do the American people want a representative democracy that functions under the rule of law determined by the consent of the governed and not by the dictates of practitioners of an intolerant ideology which originated in the Middle East more than a millennium ago?

The myopic sheep of his congregation will likely distance themselves from this crime, at least, publicly. A few might openly condemn his act. However, away from cameras and prying eyes of non-believers, they will smile, laugh and shout his praises for slaughtering a man that they all loathed. They will strive to assure the country that his actions do not represent their movement’s true intentions and that the killer had strayed from their guidance into extremism. The adherents’ spokesmen have mastered duplicitous statements that fool the bulk of non-believers. Too many gullible Americans so desperately want to avoid conflict that they swallow the double-speak despite glaring inconsistencies. Eventually, that forced consumption of disinformation will lead to either the expectoration of the multitude of lies or irrevocable asphyxiation. Sadly, a significant number of the alleged intellectuals among the media, academia and other spheres of influence have already succumbed to the latter, leading to their obvious brain-dead status.

In conclusion, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad’s murder of Private William Long at an Army-Navy recruiting office in Little Rock, Arkansas should remind all Americans that jihadis do not exist and operate solely in backwaters in which Islam reigns. This latest act of Islamic aggression directed at a defender of freedom should serve notice that those residing in the United States must maintain vigilance against future incidents of savagery. Additionally, this incident underscores the necessity of the total elimination of the malignancy from the entire world, starting within the borders of the United States of America.
