RP & Workers

Crown prince Reza Pahlavi addressed the protesting laborers inside of Iran:
    "Today, your protests are being heard around the globe. On this Labor Day, your solidarity with out-of-work fellow workers, teachers and students in confronting this regime can herald freedom and economic welfare in Iran. This unity and solidarity is more than ever critical in our national goal of attaining freedom and prosperity."
Right on target again!

This challenge to the mullahs is temporary. In the Muslim world, you get these fads where a dissident sect challenges the mainstream. In this case, the secularists are the dissident sect. But in the end, the Iranians will--because they are mostly Muslims--return to the basics of the faith. Just look at Turkey, Algeria, or even the West, places where Muslims are growing less and less respectful of the secular order. It will take another few decades to overthrow the mullahs, at best, and even then, a significant part of the population will allow the mullahs to regain much (but not all) of their influence within four or five years. When in doubt, Iran will turn to the legacy of Ayatollah Khomeini and all the other lunatic ayatollahs and mullahs because that's what Muslims do.

You really don't know much about the on going student battle against the hardcore Islamist in the Iran. The old instruments cannot make new sounds. If it wasn't because of the Shah's reliance (and CIAs) on the Religious figures to neutralize oppositions from the nationalist, left and the liberal (in that order). We would not have the problems that we would have right now.
