Iranian Student Perspective
Posted by cann0nba11 on June 15, 2009
I’m not a big fan of the Middle East. I’m not fond of stoning people to death because they are gay, or because they were accused of adultury. But I have hope that the younger generation can take Iran to a better place. An Iranian student puts the election in perspective:
On Saturday and yesterday, Mousavi supporters defied the regime in some streets, in Vanak Square, Fatemi Street, they set a bus on fire and they were beaten by the police. It is clear to everyone now that Ahmadinejad has stolen this vote and that he will shut down the young people on the streets. After a few days their anger will be abated.
When I have wiped my tears away, I have something to be happy and proud of. Mousavi may have lost this fraudulent election, but people will not forget him, and what is more they will draw a line between him and what he represents and this government.
