Iran's Islamic Regime Enforcing 'Cultural and Nationalistic Symbols' Cleansing Policy'Topics: Iran
Apparently Iran's Islamic regime is enforcing it's Cultural and Nationalistic Symbols' Cleansing Policy and is increasing its repressive actions against Iranians who wish to celebrate some of Iran's cultural heritage and nationalistic symbols in the days ahead. According to SMCCDI, the main targets are the "Tchahr-Shanbe Souri" (Fire Fiest), on March 14th, the "Nowrooz" (meaning New day and which is the start of Persian New Year and the official beginning of Spring), on March 20th, and the "Sizdeh-Bedar" (Traditional Persian picnic marking the end of the Persian New Year's celebration ceremonies) on April 1st. It seems that Iran's theocratic leadership is worried about the increasing expression of Iranians attachment to symbols of "Iranism" and is considers them to be direct threats its "backward and imported Islamist ideology". In other words, if a line of thought doesn't follow the theocratic line of the Islamists, it should be made extinct - by force if necessary!
SMCCDI has more...
There's a take home message somewhere here. Iranians are being treated to a taste of what it's like to live under Islamic rule, Iran intends for Islam to rule the world, and the rest of us live in that world. Hmmmmm...
