Brave Iranian Students

From the BBC,

Iranian students have disrupted a speech President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was giving at a university by lighting fireworks and burning his portrait...
According to Iran's students' news agency, ISNA, the president responded by saying: "Everyone should know that Ahmadinejad is prepared to be burned in the path of true freedom, independence and justice."

Well, the Iranian president (and his buddies on the other side of Iraq, and across the border from there) should know that the only path to true freedom, independence and justice, might require them all burning... politically if possible.

Brave, indeed.

Tehran, 11 Dec. (AKI) - Four students with the Imam Hossein university in Tehran who took part Monday morning in a protest against Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have reportedly disappeared. Mehdi Tajik, Nasser Zohre, Nasser Kamali and Hassan Fadwi, all physics students, went missing while walking home from the protest. They are members of the Association of Republican Students and reports said Pasdaran officials could have detained them.

Those students are the real "mensch", the real heroes.

It is easy for a sheep to walk tall, as long as it is within the crowd of other sheeps. It is harder for the Men to stand tall, and refuse to bray with the masses...
