General Ali Fazli, who was recently appointed as a commander of the Revolutionary Guards in the province of Tehran, is reported to have been arrested after he refused to carry out orders from the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei to use force on people protesting the controversial re-election of President Mah

moud Ahmadinejad.

OATH KEEPERS:

So, at least one Iranian General has refused orders issued by the “supreme leader” to use force against protesters. Good for him! May we see more like him step up, and may their troops under their command do the same. Unfortunately, so far the Iranian government has had plenty of obedient orcs who are willing to shoot unarmed protesters, like this [WARNING, VERY GRAPHIC]:

Shooting Death of Unarmed Young Iranian Girl, Neda Soltani:

Here is the statement of a witness to the shooting:


..Basij shots to death a young woman in Tehran’s Saturday June 20th protests At 19:05 June 20th Place: Karekar Ave., at the corner crossing Khosravi St. and Salehi st. A young woman who was standing aside with her father watching the protests was shot by a basij member hiding on the rooftop of a civilian house. He had clear shot at the girl and could not miss her. However, he aimed straight her heart. I am a doctor, so I rushed to try to save her. But the impact of the gunshot was so fierce that the bullet had blasted inside the victim’s chest, and she died in less than 2 minutes. The protests were going on about 1 kilometers away in the main street and some of the protesting crowd were running from tear gass used among them, towards Salehi St. The film is shot by my friend who was standing beside me. Please let the world know.

And here is another video of unarmed college students who have been shot by the Iranian government’s thugs:

And here is a report on how the Iranian government is suppressing the reporting of news crews, by beating them, and also how it is trying to stop the use of social media like Twitter and Facebook to get the news out [most of the video and reports coming out of Iran are by citizens using social media]:

But there are likely not enough hardline “Basij” Gestapo in Iran to stop the Iranian people from rising up. And in fact, despite the willingness of the government enforces to fire at unarmed protesters, IBtimesUK reports that “Iranians are set to gather at 4pm (12:30 British time) [today] for a rally to mourn the death of 27 year old student Neda Agha Soltani, dubbed the “Angel of Iran” after her death, allegedly at the hands of a Basij militiaman was caught on camera.” [see above video].

That memorial will be held in the face of very real threats of violence from the Revolutionary Guard which has, according to the Associated Press:

issued a threat to people considering further protests on their website.The site warns protestors to “be prepared for a resolution and revolutionary confrontation with the Guards, Basij and other security forces and disciplinary forces.”

All mosques in Tehran have been banned from holding memorial services for Neda.”

    MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE IT IS THE ZIONISTS WHO WANT THE TROOPS TO DISOBEY ORDERS IN IRAN. THE JUDAIC CONTROLLED MEDIA AND CIA/ZIONIST PLANTS HAVE BEEN DOING ALL THEY CAN TO OVERTHROW THE ELECTION WIN OF PRESIDENT AHMADINEJAD. THE ZIONISTS HAVE BEEN DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO DEMONIZE AHMADINEJAD SINCE AHMADINEJAD HAS BEEN ON TO THE CRIMINAL TERRORIST SCAM CALLED THE MODERN DAY STATE OF ISRAEL.

    WHY IS OATH KEEPERS PUSHING THIS JUDAIC ZIONIST PROPAGANDA? IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THEY ARE A FALSE OPPOSITION BEING USED BY THE ZIONISTS!

    James,

    If it is as you say, then would it not be to the advantage to have AHMADINEJAD remain in power, as a target for their propaganda?

    To what end would zionists want his removal?

    A dictator needs an enemy for the people to fear more than they fear him, or HE becomes the enemy.

    Racism has no place in this movement if this movement is to broaden it’s base.

    Do NOT let this movement be overtaken by hatreds or fears.

    This is an AMERICAN movement.

    DAVID,

    DON’T MUDDY THE WATERS. THE ZIONISTS WANT HIS REMOVAL FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS, NOT THE LEAST OF WHICH IS BECAUSE HE IS A VOICE AGAINST THE MURDEROUS HOLOLOHOAX MYTH WHICH PROVIDES THE ZIONISTS WITH THEIR PERPETUAL VICTIMHOOD STATUS FOR ALL THE DUMBED DOWN GOYEM.

    AS FAR AS RACISM, YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. RACISM HAS NO PLACE IN THIS MOVEMENT. THE PURPOSE OF MY COMMENT WAS TO EXPOSE THE RACISM OF ZIONISM WHICH IS THE MOST POWERFUL FORM OF RACISM IN THE WORLD TODAY AND TO SHOW THAT OATH KEEPERS SHOULD NOT GIVE ANY IMPLICIT FORM OF SUPPORT TO ZIONISM BY THIS KIND OF ZIONIST BACKED NEWS STORY.

    IF OATH KEEPERS IS AN AMERICAN MOVEMENT THEN FOR GOODNESS SAKES, LETS KEEP ZIONIST PROPAGANDA STORIES OUT OF IT.

    Jews have a nice saying “Never Again”. I think the begining of Oath Keepers is good at heart, but not if it will be highjacked by Nazis or racist thugs. Freedom for all, you are wrong if you state any thing else other than that and I will not stand for it.

    a quick note @ James: This isn’t zionist propaganda. As you’ve seen all over the site, Oath Keepers is an organization that promotes disobeying unlawful orders, esp those that circumvent the Constitution of the United States. That an Iranian general would disobey an order to attack protesters is significant and demonstrates real courage on his part. The story is wholly in line with the subject matter and purpose of this site.

    This general did what the promise keepers hope to be able to do.I hope his men will stand behind him.He is clearly risking his,life,fortune and sacred honor. The men that protect their countries recognize true courage and sacrifice.

    Mr. Phillips,
    Please take your anti-Semetism and superfluous capitalization elsewhere. Silly rants like this (and other idiotic screeds you have posted on this site – ALL IN CAPS LOCK) lend credence to those who would denounce this organization. If you wanna duke this out come comment on my blog at:
    teeceeemm.blogspot.com
    I’m more than happy to stand up for the chosen people of the Yahweh, as I have done opposite Jew-baiters of all stripes time and again. This just isn’t the place for a debate of that nature; as the statements that either of us make could become ammo in the propaganda machine of those mutual enemies we share.

    umkay? thanks

    To TCM blogger and anyone else out there listening. Oh, how absolutely horrible! In my previous posts I committed a CAPITAL offense. I used CAPS! Tsk, tsk. Shame on me.

    I am always amazed that when anyone ever attacks Zionism, the absolute purest and strongest form of racism on the planet, people come crawling out of the woodwork everywhere to denounce the person as an anti-Semite (regardless of the fact that the vast majority of Semites are not Zionists or Jews!) and carry out other ad hominem attacks. It really tells you something. Oh, Pastor Hagee the leader of “Christian Zionists” (a misnomer if there ever was one!) how happy you must be.
