Ashura: Iranian resistance fights back
December 28, 2009
During moharram, which culminates with Ashura, violence is forbidden in Islam. For the murderous Islamic regime of Iran however, this was not the case. It appears that the regime’s CEO Ayatollah Khamenei believes he can twist and pervert the teachings in the Koran to fit whatever suits his needs in that moment. Khamenei once again unleashed his thugs on the citizens of Iran. On this day, they were especially brutal and ruthless, as video streamed in revealing direct fire at protestors, indiscriminate violent beatings (many fractured and broken limbs) and running people over with their vehicles.
However, this time the protestors fought back. It appears what incited the protestors was the shootings at College Bridge in the early hours which resulted in at least 3 killed and many more injured. As the day went on protestors had fought back valiantly and had attacked, cornered, captured and beat many basij throughout the day. They set fire to many basij motorcycles, police vehicles and security buildings. They also attacked many security vehicles transporting arrested protestors and freed them.
This brutal regime and illegitimate government have sealed their fate with this final act of barbaric terrorism against their own citizenry. The brave and proud Iranian people know Revolution and Sacrifice, and they will never cease until this murderous regime is toppled. Their days are numbered and they shall all face justice.

This time we mourn the murders of the children of Iran!
Every year Iran and Shia Muslims commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussein. For ten days the people mourn the death of the Imam, his family and followers. They wear black, attend meetings and carry out processions to express their grief. To the Shia Muslims around the world Moharram is like a season-dark, somber and sacred. The colour of the season is black. For Moharram is the month of mourning. For the first ten days of Moharram, Muslims gather in mosques and shrines, dressed in black to mourn for Imam Hussein, grandson of the Prophet Muhammed who was slain with his family and followers in the battle of Karbala in the year 680.
However, this year the color of the season will be Green, and we will mourn the slaying of the children of Iran. We will mourn for ten days ( beginning Dec. 18 ) over the arrests, beatings, torture, rape and murder of the children of our beloved Iran. And on the tenth day ( Dec. 27 ) of Moharram, which is called Ashura, Iranians will be protesting en masse. All are invited to join in, as this is a Government sponsored religious celebration (event), just as Qods day was. You can expect to see hundreds of thousands, if not millions on the streets this day protesting the Regime’s murder of our children.
More information will be posted as it comes in. Again, please pass all info to anyone you can, whether inside or out of Iran. Let’s make Ashura a spectacular success.
As always, stay safe and stay focused.
