Obama doesn’t support the democracy uprising in Iran as he did in Egypt. In 2009, he remained silent when the young Iranian green movement protesters were getting slaughtered in the streets, because he didn’t want to offend the mullahs and the dictator of Iran.
Obama supported the overthrow of Mubarak in order to make way for his pals in the Muslim Brotherhood who will turn Egypt into an Islamic state just like Iran.
MSNBC — TEHRAN — Clashes between Iranian police and tens of thousands of protesters wracked central Tehran on Monday as security forces beat and fired tear gas at opposition supporters hoping to evoke Egypt’s recent popular uprising.
An Iranian was shot dead, the semi-official Fars news agency reported. “One person was shot dead and several were wounded by seditionists (opposition supporters) who staged a rally in Tehran,” Fars said, without giving further details.
The opposition called for a demonstration Monday in solidarity with Egypt’s popular revolt that a few days earlier forced the president there to resign after nearly 30 years in office. The rally is the first major show of strength for Iran’s cowed opposition in more than a year.
Police used tear gas against the protesters in central Tehran’s Enghelab, or Revolution, square and in Imam Hossein square, as well as in other nearby main streets. Demonstrators responded by setting garbage bins on fire to protect themselves from the stinging white clouds.
Eyewitnesses said at least three protesters injured by bullets were taken to a hospital in central Tehran while dozens of others were hospitalized because of severe wounds as a result of being beaten.
“An Iranian dies but doesn’t accept humiliation,” demonstrators chanted. “Death to the dictator,” they said, in a chant directed at hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
