The Day of Ashura is one of the holiest days for Shi’ites worldwide and particularly in Iran…! What just happened earlier today could really be the turning point on the Shi’a Theocracy’s ironfisted rule over the Iranian masses…

Spencer made a great point…

I don’t know how long it’ll take, but a theocracy that the faithful equate with the man whose iniquity ultimately prompted the creation of Shiism is doomed.

This is the day of Islam’s first martyr…

‘It’s pure political suicide to kill people on Ashura of all days,’ said Siavush Randjbar-Daemi, an analyst and Ph.D. candidate in contemporary Iranian history at London University. ‘They become instant martyrs.’

Some other memorable quotes of the day’s activities…

The Grey Lady had this to say…

The protests, on the holiday commemorating the death of Hussein, Shiite Islam’s holiest martyr, were the bloodiest and among the largest since the uprisings that followed Iran’s disputed presidential election last June, witnesses said. Hundreds of people were reported wounded, and the Tehran police said they had made 300 arrests.

The Iranian authorities’ decision to use deadly force on the sacred Ashura holiday infuriated many Iranians, and some said the violence appeared to galvanize more traditional religious people who have not been part of the protests so far. The Shah’s forces never fired on protesters during Ashura, wary of violating the day’s strictures against violence.

An apparent Martyr was created…

A nephew of Iranian opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi has reportedly been killed in clashes between anti-government protesters and security forces, an aide said Sunday.

Al Jazeera had this to say…

Police said that five people were killed in clashes in the capital Tehran in a "suspicious way".

Ahmad Reza Radan, Iran’s deputy police chief, also said that 300 protesters had been arrested following the violence.

"In the incident several people were killed. One fell off a bridge, two died in car accidents and one was killed by a bullet," Radan said.

Referring to the person shot dead, he said: "As the police was not using firearms this (death) is suspicious and it is being investigated."

*whew* I thought the western media could spin a tale…! Well, I guess they’re only reporting what the regime is telling ‘em…!

Folks, Iran is imploding… Stand back and let the chips fall where they may…!

And, God Bless Neda Soltan…!

Peace on Earth and Goodwill to all Mankind…!!!
