Iranians See the Real Obama

5 11 2009


Obama, your mask is slipping, and your true face is showing.

More and more people in America and across the world are seeing you for who you really are.

Now, even the brave Iranian people are on to Obama. Yesterday, tens of thousands of Iranians defied police bludgeons and tear gas to protest against their tyrannical government. For the first time, the Iranian people are expressing impatience and skepticism about Obama, chanting “Obama, Obama — either you’re with them or you’re with us!”

Even more importantly, the protesters have turned against both their government’s anti-U.S. stance, as well as Tehran’s ally — Russia. This is a golden opportunity that the United States should not squander!

Obama, it is time for you to choose — in America, Iran, and Afghanistan. Are you for freedom, or are you for tyranny?

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Iran’s beleaguered opposition movement struggled to reassert itself on Wednesday, as tens of thousands of protesters braved police beatings and clouds of tear gas on the sidelines of a major, government-sponsored anti-American rally.

The protests — in Tehran and other cities — were the opposition’s largest street showing in almost two months and came on the 30th anniversary of the takeover of the United States Embassy in Iran, an event that was a crucible for both Iran and the United States. Although a huge force of police officers beat back and scattered many of them, the protesters took heart at their ability to openly challenge the government despite a stream of warnings from all levels of Iran’s conservative establishment.

Even some government authorities seemed to grudgingly concede that the opposition had — for the first time — disrupted the annual anti-American rally. The official IRNA news agency reported in midafternoon that “rioters,” many wearing the opposition’s signature green color, had gathered in front of its offices on Valiasr Street chanting “Death to the dictator” and other antigovernment slogans.

At the same time, a new theme emerged, with many protesters declaring their impatience with President Obama’s policy of dialogue with the Iranian government. Many could be heard chanting, “Obama, Obama — either you’re with them or you’re with us,” witnesses said.

…Protesters openly flouted the day’s official anti-American message, with about 1,000 people gathering outside the Russian Embassy in Tehran and chanting, “The real den of spies is the Russian Embassy.”

The American Embassy has been called the “den of spies” in Iran for decades. But many opposition supporters were angered by Russia’s early acceptance of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s disputed victory in Iran’s presidential election in June.
