Iranian Revolution (Day Twenty-Nine)

Update (7/12/2009):Berman Post: Iranian Revolution (Day Thirty). End of Update:

A hunger strike in the works (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2009/07/iran-revolution-day-27-mullahs-use-axes-daggers-to-attack-iranian.html)? If the government does not have a problem killing the protesters, I am not sure they are going to have much of a problem with the protesters hurting themselves. It may however get some renewed attention from the world press.

Protests video.



A video at http://shooresh1917.blogspot.com/2009/07/guards-are-speaking-arabic.html is said to be of guards speaking Arabic (not Farsi). If that is the case, it could be evidence that the Iranian authorities are importing thugs to beat down the protesters.

Calls for "International Criminal Court to prosecute the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, for crimes against humanity." (http://shooresh1917.blogspot.com/2009/07/khamenei-must-be-prosecuted-for-crimes.html).

A call from within the Iranian government for tolerance was met with a promise from a different part of the government of violence against the protesters; "A top advisor to Iran's supreme leader Saturday urged the country's establishment to be more tolerant of dissent, even as military officials stepped up their rhetoric in the latest signs of divisions created by the marred reelection of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad one month ago.
...
Providing an unyielding counterpoint, Maj. Gen. Hassan Firoozabadi, the armed forces chief of staff, issued stern warnings against protesters.

"God has chosen us in military uniform to sacrifice our lives against the enemies," he said, according to the Iranian Students News Agency, or ISNA. "Certain individuals and groups imagine that we will back down if they shout slogans against us. We have come to die, and we have proved our determination during the war with Iraq."

Political cartoons relating to the fraudulent Iranian election from the Arab media (http://www.memri.org/bin/articles.cgi?Page=archives&Area=ia&ID=IA53409): (much more at the source)

Iranian authorities are using social media to try and find protesters (http://neteffect.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2009/07/10/are_iranian_authorities_more_sophisticated_than_we_think). Not much of a surprise here, but a good reminder to be careful.
