New Years' Resoloution; Iranian Green Revolution

After 30 years of dictatorship, Islamic republic is now more weak than ever before domestically and internationally, thanks to Iranian numerous religious and national calendar events promoted initially by the regime to rally its supporters in the street. But the very same events are now been used by the opposition. The most recent one was Aushura , in an unprecedented move where for the first time after more than a 1000 year people were shouting against their dictator rulers instead of commemorating the religious event. While this suggests that Iranians are becoming increasingly secular, but in recent protests there were no chanting against the religion ideologies , although the regime on Iranians state TV video propaganda would want to present the opposition as anti-religious to anger the lower class conservatives and stop the Green Movement’ growing support among different Iranian demographic. This is a positive development and necessary for democracy and it shows green movement’s secular demand for Iran’s future political system and its societal tolerance for all the religions in Iran. There is no doubt year 2010 would be an important year for all of us and there is no doubt Iranian regime's nuclear threat will be diminished with the fruitfulness of Neda and Sohrab and thousand of Iranian freedom fighters who stood firmly against the Tyrants in Tehran and do not want nuclear bomb as the protesters shouted during their rally . It is just the matter of time and possibly months before we hear the headline on 2010 “Islamic Republic has collapsed.”
