    Iran: Night Raids Terrorize Civilians

    Source: Human Rights Watch
    June 26, 2009

    Iran's paramilitary Basij arecarrying out brutal nighttime raids, destroying property in private homes andbeating civilians in an attempt to stop nightly protest chants, Human RightsWatch said today. Human Rights Watch also said the Iranian authorities areconfiscating satellite dishes from private homes to prevent citizens fromseeing foreign news.
    Since the cable media is now Michael Jackson 24/7 I have been spending some time researching Irans dying green or stiletto revolution. This story came from hrw.org.

    Iran: Night Raids Terrorize Civilians | Human Rights Watch

    Also cleric Ahmad Khatami at a sermon at Friday prayers that Iran's judiciary should charge such rioters as "mohareb", or one who wages war against God.
    Under Iranian law, the punishment for people convicted as mohareb is execution. Iran is setting up special tribunals to make an example of protesters who have been arrested.

    Apparently the theocratic dictatorship in Iran (The Twelvers) has crushed the will of the people and will continue preparing the world for the return of the mahdi (the twelth Imam). This is there ultimate goal. Many do not realize the significance of this. We are talking Armageddon. So for those of you who think that the west should stay out of the affairs of Iran. You havn't seen nothing yet. Soon Iran will have nuclear weapons. They will use these weapons to do what they believe they were ordained to do.

    God help us all.

    We need the UN to pass strict sanctions. Then we need to form a coalition including Arab states to set up a blockade of all Irainian shipping in and out through the strait of Hormuz. All of Irans ports with the exception of Jask are in the Persian Gulf and we could block them from entry into the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea.

    This of course would also hurt the Irainian people but that may be what it takes to weaken the regime and bring about a revolution.

    The Mohareb are:

    • علی حسینی خامنه*ایAli Hoseyni Khāmene’i
    • محمود احمدی نژاد Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
    • سپاه پاسداران انقلاب اسلامی Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution
    • بسيج the Basij

    These are the ones who wage war against God. These are the ones who turn their back on the Qu'ran, which expressly condemns their actions:
    And cover not Truth with falsehood, nor conceal the Truth when ye know (what it is).

    Never should a believer kill a believer; but (If it so happens) by mistake, (Compensation is due): If one (so) kills a believer, it is ordained that he should free a believing slave, and pay compensation to the deceased's family, unless they remit it freely. If the deceased belonged to a people at war with you, and he was a believer, the freeing of a believing slave (Is enough). If he belonged to a people with whom ye have treaty of Mutual alliance, compensation should be paid to his family, and a believing slave be freed. For those who find this beyond their means, (is prescribed) a fast for two months running: by way of repentance to Allah. for Allah hath all knowledge and all wisdom.

    If a man kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, to abide therein (For ever): And the wrath and the curse of Allah are upon him, and a dreadful penalty is prepared for him.
    Those who invoke not, with Allah, any other god, nor slay such life as Allah has made sacred except for just cause, nor commit fornication; - and any that does this (not only) meets punishment.

    They are Mohareb, not by my standards, but by their own.

    No Arab state will act against Iran over internal dispute imo

    They are probably more worried that the protestors will spread to their own countries where citizens will start demanding rights and transparency. No no, Arab Governments would rather Iran's Government crush the uprising

    All the more reason to call for the Arab nations to publicly re-affirm their own Cairo Declaration of Human Rights In Islam, and to publicly re-affirm the charter of the Organization of the Islamic Conference.

    These documents attest to human rights even within the Ummah. The standards of governance articulated within these documents do not look kindly on the actions of the Islamic Republic towards its own citizens.

    Challenge the Ummah to live up to their truth, just as they challenge us to live up to ours.

    And who will be the one to demand it?
    The citizens? I don't think so somehow.
    No Government will snitch on one another because it'll ruin their power.

    The last thing some Arab Governments will ever want is their citizens to start taking after the Iranians and get ideas of Democracy in their head.

    Hmmmm so this is the situation:

    So Iranian government terrorizes citizens equals bad, and U.S. MUST intervene. However, when in Darfur the government was killing thousands and displacing and terrorizing millions of people from their homes via genocide equals don't care, let someone else handle it.

    Interesting.

    So you think its Americas place to FORCE a revolution in Iran?
