Fighting in Iran

Interesting reports from Project: 'Free Iran': bq. VERGE OF REVOLUTION: Intense Fighting Throughout Iran! Reports over the past 24 - 48 hours via several important information services such as SMCCDI, Peykeiran, Zagros and direct email reports and phone calls from Iranian citizens is beginning to shine light on what at this time looks to be country-wide fighting and quickly escalating into what could potentially become a freedom revolution. bq. Several independent citizen sources have reported the formation of significant crowds throughout the country, and have heard many loud explosions and gun shots, including in the cities of Tehran, Esfahan, and Shiraz. bq. SMCCDI and Peykeiran have both reported intense battles between freedom-loving Iranian citizens and the regime's fanatical militias in the village of Meeyan Do Ab. Both sources are reporting many deaths and injuries both to the villagers and regime's forces. bq. In the past week and recent days, many regional commanders and leaders of the regime's militias have been targeted and killed along with many of their militiamen. bq. Initial reports from Iranian online news sources as well as from western satellite news media are reporting intense fighting throughout Iran, and report that such fighting is increasing at a constant rate. bq. On September 28th, SMCCDI reported that in Iran's main southern port of Bandar-Abbas located by the Hormoz Strait on the Persian Gulf, heavy fighting between Elite commandos of the Pasdaran Corp and Iranian residents who were protesting the regime's murder of three fishermen broke out. Angry residents attacked several public buildings as well as regime vehicles with incendiary devices. bq. Reports also indicate that Bandar Abbas is the main commercial entry to Iran and its paralysis could help spark unprecedented chaos that would severely threaten and likely cause the fall of the Islamic Regime. bq. Regime forces are also acknowledging the discovery of several ammunition depots used by Iranian citizens against the Mullah's militias. bq. At this time and for several months now, regime security forces have remained heavily deployed in the most strategic areas of Iranian cities in an effort to prevent the spread and growth of any major uprising. bq. The current situation appears to be quite explosive at this time. A related story is from SwissInfo news service: bq. Iran's clerical leadership will fall on Friday, if Iranian self-styled prophet Ahura Pirouz Khaleghi Yazdi -- whose broadcasts on a U.S.-based satellite channel have become hot gossip in Iran -- is to be believed. bq. Khaleghi's Web site (, based in California, says he will return to Iran on Friday to remove the "Terrorist Regime" using good thoughts, good words and good deeds, the central tenets of Zoroastrianism, Iran's pre-Islamic religion. Very interesting - there have been other demonstrations in recent past. The one on March 16th of this year was especially interesting since it was on a major Zoroastrian festival. I blogged about it and CNN's media coverage here. From a comment by Reader Ric: bq. Before it was Iran it was Persia, and Persians worshipped, or more accurately venerated, Zoroaster. Zoroastrians don�t worship fire, but they use it a lot in religious ceremonies. bq. Muhammad had a special place in his heart for the �fire worshippers.� Those parts of the Koran are fun to read, in a gruesome sort of way. You can imagine him speaking, occasionally stopping to suavely wipe the spittle from his lips. Zoroastrians aren�t People of the Book, just misguided; they aren�t even Pagans, who only need to be enslaved. They are defiant opponents of God and the Good. We�re the Great Satan. Zoroastrians are about two cuts below that. Evil incarnate. bq. And the Mad Mullahs, the most intolerant Islamists available until you find al Qutb and Waha�ab, are �tolerating� the �ancient religious festival� of the Zoroastrian New Year? Buuuwahaha! Put it this way: would you, or CNN, smell a rat if somebody gave you a tip that the B�nai B�rith was organizing a pig roast? Hat tip: LGF
