The Iranian people won’t be silenced

During yesterday’s Jerusalem Day “celebrations” in Iran, this happened:

By midmorning in central Tehran, dozens of opposition supporters in green T-shirts and wearing green wristbands – a color symbolising the opposition movement – marched with fingers raised in the V-sign for victory and chanting “Death to the Dictator.”

Others shouted for the government to resign, carried small photos of Mousavi, while some women marched with their children in tow.

There were also chants of: “Neither Gaza nor Lebanon, but our life is for Iran” – a slogan defying the regime’s support for Palestinian militants in Gaza and Lebanon’s Hezbollah guerrilla.

In related news, there is growing pressure to force Israel to allow inspectors into its nuclear sites.

So, is Israel a normal country or simply above the law?
