Robert on Jihadwatch has an excellent insight into the war against the Mullahs in Iran
[begin quote from Jihadwatch here]
This just in from a contact who is in touch with people in Iran. Usually Khamenei doesn’t lead Friday prayers or give a sermon — usually a “substitute” prayer leader does it. But today Khamenei gave his pitch, and here’s the result:
I just had call from Iran, tonight people in streets and the roof of their houses were shouting “Allah Akbar”, “Down with Khamenei”, “Down with Dictator”.
This has, of course, gone way beyond a call to allow Mousavi take office. Will it topple the Islamic Republic itself? Certainly things are spiraling way out of control as far as the mullahs are concerned. The shouts of “Allahu akbar” should not be taken to indicate that the Islamic Republic is not threatened — that’s the cultural context in which these people are operating, and doesn’t mean that there is not discontent with the very foundations of the state.
[end quote from Robert here]
Readers of this blog should now visit this thread on Jihadwatch and view in particular the comments which are infredibly reactionary and show the strange paths that they can get into. A little like Yamit82 on Israpundit getting the fols there all tied up in Holocaust denial, if it is Serbs who are holocausted.
The discussion is on
The comments stand in marked contrast to the correct reference above of Robert. I will repeat what he says
“The shouts of “Allahu akbar” should not be taken to indicate that the Islamic Republic is not threatened — that’s the cultural context in which these people are operating, and doesn’t mean that there is not discontent with the very foundations of the state.”
In dialectical terms it is the difference between form and content.
The content is the crisis in world capitalism which has driven the Islamofascists into a corner, where they can satisfy no single demand of the masses in the cities and universities especially, and where the Ahmadinajad base among the ruRal poor has eroded as well.
What is left then for the Mullahs? Mainly just hatred of Jews. Their attacks on America has got this as content as well, that is antisemitism.
The form is the demonstrations which are exceedingly dangerous to participate in and require the ultimate in courage on the part of the youth.
Read how these shit commentators on Jihad watch run these youth into the gutter, in their minds and language, they do not see the revolutionary content of the demonstrating youth.
If you scan through Israpundit you will see something similar by a Mr Bill Narvey. Que surprise!
