The Leader of the Islamic Revolution has called on Iranians to maintain their self-confidence to defuse propaganda of the enemies.

Addressing an assembly of people in the central city of Yazd on Wednesday, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei hailed the courageous contribution of the Muslim people of Yazd in defending the very identity of the Islamic Revolution.

He asserted that the Iranian nation needs to maintain its self-confidence in order to secure its ideals, stressing that it has achieved great progress through this self-confidence.

“For many decades, our enemies tried to shred our historic identity and destroy us and confound us as a nation with no identity,” said the Leader, calling on the nation to preserve the Islamic values that have been subject to attacks by enemies.

Ayatollah Khamenei added that prominent local martyrs, POWs and their families are witness to the courageous presence of the people of Yazd on political, religious and cultural scenes.

“We are moving toward an Islamic society in which Islamic values are comprehensively observed by strong and powerful people who are subservient to the Almighty. They are happy with the dictates of the Almighty,” he continued.

Highlighting the role of Islamic democracy in the country, the Leader touched on the West’s failure to establish social justice and liberal democracy, saying Westerners are faced with moral problems.

”Man will not be happy with only scientific progress. Welfare also requires spiritual and moral security,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

He urged the Iranian nation to maintain its vigilance and commitment and as before, to elect the most qualified candidates. These candidates should be quite familiar with the problems of the people, he said.

Iran’s Leader described the city of Yazd as a center of religion and science, saying the people of Yazd are modest, talented and full of religious beliefs, a people who enjoy innovative ideas.

The Leader also said the Iranian nation should consider the upcoming parliamentary election the most important event this year.

What is Iranian “Islamic democracy” exactly? Is there such an animal?

Families of detained Iranian students protest outside UN office in Tehran

NCRI- On Monday, the families of detained Iranian students staged a protest outside the UN office in Tehran to call for the unconditional release of their loved ones despite extensive efforts by the Iranian Regime State Security Forces (SSF) to prevent them.

The protestors who carried the photos of detained students called on the United Nations to take urgent action to release their children. The UN office representative met with protestors and promised them to consider their requests.

The overwhelming confidence shown towards their leaders is astounding!

Iran – Democratic Movement gets a boost from student protest

Early in the week, despite extraordinary measures by the State Security Forces and the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), more than 3,000 Tehran University students staged an anti-government protest. The occasion for the protest was the National Student Day. Its target, however, was the entirety of the ruling regime.

None of these measures proved effective, however. In the mid day, with hundreds of students protesting inside the campus and shouting “death to dictator” and “no fascism,” hundreds of students from other universities were blocked by the security agents at the university’s gates. That did not last long. Students crushed the huge gate and rammed through it to join those inside. Before long, the chants of “Down with the fascist regime,” “Death to this deceitful government,” and “Live free or die” were heard all over the campus and beyond.

The vociferous protest also drew a sharp line between these students and some state-sponsored student organizations which, under of the banner of peace, work to derail the movement for democratic change when they shouted “yes to peace, no to fascism,” and “students would rather die than live under suppression.” In clear and uncompromising statements, the students showed that genuine peace could only be brought about with rejection of the religious dictatorship.

Hosseinkhah, Javaheri: jailed in Iran

p2pnet news | Freedom:- Iranian Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi says bail set for two jailed Iranian women’s rights activists, whom she says are innocent of charges laid against them by the country’s ruling authorities, is far too high.

All Iranian websites offering news about the country have been forced to register with the culture ministry, says RWB, adding:

“According to the council of ministers, insulting Islam or other monotheistic religions, spreading separatist ideologies, publishing false news (according to the council) or publishing news that invades privacy are all grounds for declaring a website illegal.”

Democracy in action! /sarc

Hosseinkhah and Javaheri are among those who want to change Iran’s Sharia-based laws for women by collecting a million signatures online and in person, says AFP, adding:

“The two women were among the 33 women arrested in March outside a revolutionary court where fellow feminists were on trial for organising a protest in June 2006 in a Tehran square.”

This horrifying story should open up eyes otherwise closed. And send shivers down your spines.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
