Finding Truth by reading Between the Lines

Reader comment on item: Rooting for Ahmadinejad

Submitted by Folklight (United States), Jun 15, 2009 at 02:12

Professor Azar Nafisi stated in Al Jazeera interview:http://english.aljazeera.net/news/middleeast/2009/06/2009613181040285185.html

["It was really amazing and interesting to see what Mr Mousavi chose as his platform to win. He didn't just campaign against Ahmadinejad but against the very foundations of the Islamic Republic. The fact that Mr Mousavi risked his political career to take up this position suggests that a sizable number of the population don't want what exists now."]

This article highlights the power of incremental change, brought about by discussion of issues one person to another. Truth and Ideals are more potent than bullets though both have their usefulness. Do not be misled into assisting the further entrenchment of Theocratic power. Know your movement & own it. Iran's Theocracy is facing social revolution and a repudiation of the underlying source of their continuing power. The dream of a caliphate is not a national dream, rather it's a fading dream of ideologues. You can not force anyone to believe something, humans must choose to believe. That is God given volition. Choose to use it in pursuit of truth. http://folklight.blogspot.com/ http://www.campus-watch.org/article/id/553: http://www.mei.edu/: http://www.wsu.edu/~dee/ISLAM/CALIPH.HTM
