New reports are circulating of another crack-down against protesters in Iran. The Iranian people are rising up again, in the hopes of toppling their cruel dictatorial "President" Mahmoud Ahmedinejad. They should be more hopeful in achieving their goal, especially in the wake of Egyptian President's Hosni Mubarak's sudden resignation and President Zine al-Abidine ben Ali's flight from Tunisia. "People Power" throughout the Middle East is yielding some signicant dividends, which the Iranians want to take advantage of.
I sincerely hope that this second uprising, in the wake of two previous successful demonstrations of Middle East people power, will finally remove that hateful, anti-Semitic dictator and his religious cronies.
I would be really glad to see populist uprisings remove Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power. He is the last remaining Arab-Nazi Baathist in the region, and his ouster would only be a boon to the weakened state of Lebanon and the harassed nation of Israel.
Let us hope and pray for the long-term revival of freedom in the Middle East, where it has languished for far too long.
