Twitter freedom

The world has changed.

I’ll be honest- I’m having trouble working today.  As the fraudulent Iranian election returns began to come in last Friday night, I began following feeds from Tehran on Twitter.  For hours I watched the news happen in real time, following links that thousands (both inside and outside of Iran) were posting.  Some tweets were being done by students at Tehran Univ. as their friends were being beaten and attacked in the street outside!

Today I can’t stop, even though I have work to do; here’s why.

WARNING: This is a graphic photo showing a dead protester.

I don’t know this man’s name or anything about him– only that he died on the streets in Tehran today, protesting an election stolen by the same Iranian mullah thugs who are building a nuclear bomb with all our names written on it.  Yes folks, in a real sense, he died for American as well as Iranian freedom, because until the Iranian people have an actual democracy, we are all in danger.  As I write that, I realize that many are revolted by the idea of the US “imposing” democracy.  I’m not suggesting that; I only want to support the “freedom fighter” protesters who are willing to die on their own streets opposing the same tyranny which threatens us.

May the Lord have mercy on his family & friends, and somehow get through to them the name of the true foundation of freedom, as well as eternal life:

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

(The Iranian govt. is putting pressure on sites like Twitter to remove damning photos like this– if the link is gone, I have the pic on my PC.  Just ask for it…)

Update:  This video shows the militia taking potshots at protesters– who, apparently, have no weapons and cannot fire back.
