Iran Tonight

Translation:

Tomorrow is Saturday. Tomorrow is a day of destiny.

Tonight, the cries of Allah-o Akbar are heard louder and louder than the nights before.

Where is this place?  Where is this place where every door is closed?  Where is this place where people are simply calling God?  Where is this place where the sound of Allah-o Akbar gets louder and louder?

I wait every night to see if the sounds will get louder and whether the number increases. It shakes me.  I wonder if God is shaken.

Where is this place that where so many innocent people are entrapped?  Where is this place where no one comes to our aid?  Where is this place that only with our silence we are sending our voices to the world?  Where is this place that the young shed blood and then people go and pray — standing on that same blood and pray.  Where is this place where the citizens are called vagrants?

Where is this place?  You want me to tell you?  This place is Iran.  The homeland of you and me.

This place is Iran.

Iran Updates

I am dismayed by the reaction of Iran’s government. Dismayed but not surprised. In a true democracy, a peaceful protest would be allowed without violence on the part of the President. In a true democracy, at least an investigation and recount of the vote would happen.

This week we have seen the evidence that the democracy of Iran is nothing but a facade, a sham, meaningless words of a cruel, power greedy dictator who values nothing but his own ability to control.  Such a person is not worthy of anything but disdain.  Ahmadinejad is a soulless, spineless little fraction of a man (as are those who support him) whose only purpose seems, by his own actions, to be the raping and demoralizing of Iran.  He would turn a Sea of Green in to a mourning sea of red.

I watched this happen 20 years ago in China.  I watch it happen now in Iran.  I am truly scared for the people of Iran tomorrow.  Please, be safe.  Know that the rest of the world is watching and we stand with you.
