Received reports indicate that the regime's brutal forces have attacked Iranians celebrating the Festival of Fire (Chaharshanbeh Souri). This is an ancient Persian celebration, predating Islam by a couple of thousand years; it marks the approaching of the Iranian new year (which is also pre-Islamic), celebrated on March 21, the vernal equinox.Well this must just be a bunch of Right Wing clap trap about the wonderful Mullahs, who just want to make everyone's life better.
Here is my favorite part of the story:
Last week, KAYHAN, the mouthpiece newspaper belonging to the Fuehrer Mullah Khamnei, in yet another shameless and fascistic attempt at destroying all things Persian, pronounced the observance of the ancient Persian New Year and the pre-New Year celebration of the Festival of Fire to be Haraam (forbidden by Islam or religiously unclean). (emp. mine)
Great stuff over at this site, reminding all of us that the war on terror is being fought everyday, by people on the forgotten front line.
