Iran Revolutionary Guard threatens protesters

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is threatening to crush any further opposition protests over the disputed presidential election and warns demonstrators to prepare for a “revolutionary confrontation” if they take to the streets again.

The country’s most powerful military force ordered demonstrators to “end the sabotage and rioting activities” and said their resistance is a “conspiracy” against Iran.

A statement posted Monday on the Guard’s Web site warned protesters to “be prepared for a resolution and revolutionary confrontation with the Guards, Basij and other security forces and disciplinary forces.”

    Islam….the religion of peace…
    My prayers are with Neda and her family today.

  2. Brian from T19 says:


    This has as much to do with Islam as the murder of Dr Tiller has to do with Christianity.

    As for Neda, she’s already safe with God – I’d pray for the protesters that will surely die as they continue in their futile protests.

  3. Katherine says:

    It doesn’t have to do with Islam? How do you get there, #2? These are the forces of the Islamic Revolution, taking Islam to its logical extreme. Islam is not a religious system separate from a political system; it is all-encompassing.

    Dr. Tiller’s killer does not appear to have been a member of any particular Christian group, or even of an anti-abortion organization, so your analogy fails.

  4. drjoan says:

    I’m lost. Who is Neda?

  5. Ken Peck says:

    “Neda” is Pharsi for “voice”.
    She was shot in the heart by the Iranian police/guard/militia/goons and video of her dying has been widely distributed on the internet and TV.

  6. Jeffersonian says:

    I think it has to do with Islam, but the problem is defining “Islam.” Anyone who’s read VS Naipaul’s “Beyond Belief” can hear the voices of disillusionment with the Islamic revolution in Iran. In 1979, virtually everyone was thrilled at the idea of such an event and eventual state of society, but there was no consensus on what the end product would look like and very, very few had the vision of what finally emerged in mind.
