Iran: Riots in France

Mr.Behi writes: At the moment, Iranian government is really anti-western in attitude and they are very pissed off that France together with other countries condemned Ahmadinejad for his speech. As a result, Iranian media is trying to show that there are peaceful Muslims that have the right to fight and the ugly secular French government is ignoring them.

    If the same thing happened in Iran they would have called it revolution and end of regime in Iran but since it happened in France they call it riot that’s the different in culture. The same root for the problem to come

    Iranian people should copy the French rioters and oust the pretender government in Tehran once and for all. When Iranian people are tricked into voting for a president who is controlled by “outside forces hostile to Iran”, then it is time for them to get rid of this fraud. Ahmadinejad – a doctorate degree holder who went to college in the Shah’s time – is hardly an islamist: instead, he is a secret agent with a job of destroying Iran on behalf of someone. It is anyone’s guess who:

    The Americans?
    The Israelis?
    Saddam Hussein’s supporters?
    Syrian secularists?
    Royalists in Iran?
    Some combination of one or more of these?
