An election, which can clearly be proved to contain cheaters ..just add the numbers from official statistics. Poeple are again on the streets demonstrating for freedom and democracy.
Imagine, you were born in 1982 (3 years after the revolution) as a woman in Iran. You would be a decent girl and so far you have not been married.
You would probably never have:
-Been to a disco.
-had a sexual relationship
-going out in public with men other than family members
-your earnings would be between 200 and 600 € a month.
I really appreciate that some leaders now speak up in Iran to be able to give the poeople of Iran an opportunity to decide for themselves.
Mousavi and Rafsanjani has been the most important figures in this step, moving away from the corrupt current leadership, which has made Iran so poor.
I think allthough, that the most important strong force have been the courage of the women and men in Iran. The world should thank them, because they are willing to sacrifice short term pain to make this world a better place.
I know Iran is not the only place on earth, we should not forget Burma, North Korea, Parts of China and Afganistan. But I think a change in Iran would have a greater inpact on the world as it would be a change in a Muslim republic, and could help make better relationship towards different thinking people. Imagine Iran would be more towards the openness in Indonesia. Not perfect but a giant leap for mankind.
Let us use our Friday and Sunday prayers to support the freedom fighters on the streets of Iran.
