Keep Your Eyes & Ears On Iran Thursday

February 9, 2010

February 11, 2010 marks the 31 anniversary of the Islamic Revolution….will the Civil War begin?

Will Iran Ignite?

The Sea of Green uses all significant dates to demonstrate and NONE is more significant than this day. The Sea of Green wants to overthrow the regime and be in charge of their own destiny.

The demonstrators have been hanging in the streets and are continued to be tortured and killed as examples of stopping this movement that is causing unrest and a tipping point ready to fall the country into a civil war.

Obama’s Iran Reality Check

Iran’s Supreme leader made a vague reference to a “punch” that will stun the world.

Heres some thoughts:

The opposition doesn’t have access to weapons or military and has been silently protesting peacefully, and killed. A civil war would be difficult to win since the government has a monopoly over the guns.

When will the important people of the military come to terms with the facts that it IS in their best interest to go to the other side and stop doing the bidding of the Supreme Leader?

Denouncing the religious side of the government is not to denounce the religion itself…an awakening of a national identity that is in a new phase and the students are breaking free from this regime and broken out and figure out where they want to take this country in terms of their democracy and how to practice and interpret their own religious practices.

The head of Iran’s judiciary has been receiving pressure to expedite the hangings of the demonstrators and people are being killed in the streets as an example.

The people are flooding the streets in demonstrations for the last 6 months and Wednesday our time will be Thursday Iranian time….keep your eyes and ears open….things are about to ignite….it’s a chemical reaction….it’s physics.

HISTORY

Khomeini’s return and fall of the monarchy

On February 1, 1979 Ayatollah Khomeini returned to Tehran in a chartered Air France Boeing 747. The welcoming crowd of several million Iranians was so large he was forced to take a helicopter from the airport. Khomeini was now not only the undisputed leader of the revolution, he had become so important that he descended from his airplane with cries of ‘Khomeini, O Imam, we salute you, peace be upon you.  Crowds were now known to chant “Islam, Islam, Khomeini, We Will Follow You,” and even “Khomeini for King.”

On the day of his arrival Khomeini made clear his fierce rejection of Bakhtiar’s regime in a speech promising ‘I shall kick their teeth in.’

Iranian prime minister Mehdi Bazargan was an advocate of democracy and civil rights. He also opposed the cultural revolution and US embassy takeover.

Khomeini appointed his own competing interim prime minister Mehdi Bazargan on February 4, ‘with the support of the nation’ and commanded Iranians to obey Bazargan as a religious duty.

[T]hrough the guardianship [Velayat] that I have from the holy lawgiver [the Prophet], I hereby pronounce Bazargan as the Ruler, and since I have appointed him, he must be obeyed. The nation must obey him. This is not an ordinary government. It is a government based on the sharia. Opposing this government means opposing the sharia of Islam … Revolt against God’s government is a revolt against God. Revolt against God is blasphemy.

As Khomeini’s movement gained momentum, soldiers began to defect to his side. On February 9 about 10 P.M. a fight broke out between loyal Immortal Guards and pro-Khomeini rebel Homafaran of Iran Air Force, with Khomeini declaring jihad on loyal soldiers who did not surrender. Revolutionaries and rebel soldiers gained the upper hand and began to take over police stations and military installations, distributing arms to the public. The final collapse of the provisional non-Islamist government came at 2 p.m. February 11 when the Supreme Military Council declared itself “neutral in the current political disputes… in order to prevent further disorder and bloodshed.” Revolutionaries took over government buildings, TV and Radio stations, and palaces of Pahlavi dynasty.

This period, from February 1 to 11, is celebrated every year in Iran as the “Decade of Fajr.” February 11 is “Islamic Revolution’s Victory Day”, a national holiday with state sponsored demonstrations in every city.
