The green balloon protests, have been thwarted by the regime, yesterday the Guardian Council banned balloons.
From Twitter: the Iranian Protestors are regrouping:
it's ok that we didn't have protests yesterday, we r trying 2 think of ways 2 have our voices heard without dying!
Therefore, from this perspective, the silence from Iran, touted by those in the media who prefer to focus on other events, as contained by the administration, is simply on hold until such time as communications between those now fighting for Democracy and Persia, are able to find the means to achieve their ultimate goal. This without the enormous loss of life inflicted upon the protestors by the Hired Guns of the Iranian Regime. Certainly that aid will not come from the administration of the United State, regardless of what the Ayatollah believes, President Obama would refer to the United Nations first, and then offer his condolences to the “freedom fighters” and “strongly condemn” the Iranian Government. The aid will come, however, and it will come from Europe, from a nation that has seen the face of fascism and suffered the oppression of its people, a nation that has stood up so far in response to the Iranian protestors, have no doubt that a nation that is considered the least among us (given the arrogance of certain world powers), will become the greatest in terms of morality.
Lastly, one has to understand the history of Persia, to fully understand the disconnect between the Persian People and their Islamic Leaders. Additionally, when one looks at the religious demographics of Iran, although predominantly Muslim, with several minority religions: Christians and Jews among them. However, a growing number of the Persian youth are subscribing to Zoroastrianism, the oldest religion in Persia. A sense of Persian nationalism is prevalent in a growing number of posts coming (either via twitter, YouTube, citizen tube, or a variety of blogs), and these are the voices of the protestors.
