Mousavi to fascists who are assigned to harassing him daily: Beat me, Kill me, Threaten me, you are doing your job .

This is a moving story. Apparently, in the past few days a band of bikers (Lebas shakhsi, aka Basiji) have been trying to intimidate Mir Hossein Mousavi; by harassing him and preventing his car to move out of the Art Academy—where he works. Today, as the fascist scene repeated, Mousavi got out of his car; away from his protectors; and walked towards the bikers; stood amongst them and said:

Beat me!
Kill me!
Threaten me!
You are just doing your job ...

This apparently moved many of the bikers into shame and regret and made them disperse.

Yesterday, Mousavi’s wife was attacked by the female version of these fascist mercenaries. She too had repeated: If you kill me, or cut me alive into pieces, will I not retract from my demand for justice and freedome.

You know nun; this is just the beginnig. These vampires will not give up easily and people are determined to save Iran from Talibanism.

Khamenei had the POWER to stop all this; but he has proven himself to be COMPLETELY psychotic.

I am just DEAD WORRIED ...

I am glad to see them stand up but long convinced it will get a lot worse. I heard the protests went on for the second day and there were threats to arrest him. This will continue until...

Naj. Thank you so very much for your blog. We are all in your debt and your bravery in keeping you blog going in the light of the recent arrests in all the more impressive.

There were many reports - presumably false - that Mousavi had been arrested today. Do you have information on that please? Also news about Karubi seems almost non-existent over the past day or so - I wonder why?

Thanks again dear Naj - I hope to meet you one day soon - when Iran is free and you are too. Free to stand free and proud in a democratic Iran - as a member of the new Parliament perhaps? That would be great I think - a parliament made up of people such as yourself.

Kindest regards

What made these three dictatorships so deeply rooted and enduring was the skill with which their leaders tapped into enduring aspects of their countries’ national character. The power of Khomeini’s voice motivated thousands of Iranians to climb to their rooftops every night and shout ‘Allahu Akbar!’ in an eerie and unpunishable rebuke to the doomed Shah. When the Revolution came, of all the competing factions, it was not an imported ideology like Marxism that emerged to lead the country, but that which spoke most intimately to the average Iranian: his religion.

The vigorous idealism of the Revolution has abated, but its guardians cannot afford to admit it publicly. That is why today’s marches are staffed by civil servants stiltedly shouting irrelevant slogans. The numbers are made up by the poor and hungry, who are enticed by steaming cauldrons of free food. The only truly passionate crowds in Iran are those attending Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s rural tours, where thousands of men, women and children run behind his motorcade stuffing personal notes to the president asking for hard cash, a civil servant position or exemption from military service for the family breadwinner.

‘The Revolution was not about the price of watermelons’ and ‘There is no fun in Islam’ are Ayatollah Khomeini’s most quoted utterances. But dictatorships are not just about depriving their citizens of free expression and a strong economy, as the China model shows. Nor can all dictatorships be lumped into one basket. Uniquely, though, today’s Iran is forging blossoming alliances with North Korea and former arch-enemy Iraq.

Not so sure. I think the passion of these students is really genuine; they are "existentially" threatened.
