Photos and dispatches from ‘day of mourning’ protest in Iran

The Guardian has been an excellent resource for information and pictures.

CNN reports that Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei,will deliver a sermon during Friday prayers at Tehran University.

As the protests over the elections mount, Iranian officials have reacted.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, has appealed to the citizenry to stand behind the Islamic republic.

He is to deliver a sermon during Friday prayers at Tehran University, the Basji militia said.

And his words will be closely watched for a sign of how the government plans to resolve the stalemate. Since the 1979 Islamic revolution, sermons during Friday prayers have been delivered by prominent officials, including the supreme leader on occasion.

Another opposition candidate, Mehdi Karrubi, has called for demonstrators to march to the spot where the supreme leader is scheduled to speak on Friday.

Meanwhile, Obama’s reticence will surely squander much of the good will he garnered with his Cairo speech as the days go by and it becomes clear he has no intention of taking a tough stance.

  1. When the rubber hits the road, you can always count on the so called ‘progressives’ in the West (i.e the media, the Democratic Party, Hollywood, The New York Times, MTV, et al) to take the side of the most brutal, repressive, genocidal forces as long as those forces hate America, hate the West, hate Israel, and hate Judeo-Christianity. Thank you very much Jimmy Carter you miserable little curl for helping to bring this murderous regime into power. If you had any decency and honor at all, you would find a little peanut patch somewhere in Georgia and go of and die.
