The bad news, for us Arabs and for the Palestinians, is that every time the zionist entity is nervous because it is loosing in the PR war or because it is pressured into some action by the US and the international community, like the recent calls to stop illegal settlements, it tries to divert public opinion to another unrest in the middle east and the Islamic world and show that there are more urgent matters for the international community to attend to and more vilains elsewhere. In this case, Iran's unrest, as some Iranian clerics are claiming, may well be more than a coincidence.
Watch for example here French socialite, self appointed 'intellectual' and philosopher', and notorious zionist Bernard Henri Lévy, calling young Iranians to overthrow the regime (this man is a real intellectual crap if you want my opinion).
I think Iranians, after all they went through, some at the hands of their clerics, and some at the hands of US puppet Saddam, deserve to own a revolution, preferably not of the sort of the one that is going on in their streets now.

Now I don't like Ahmadi-Nejad, I don't like Mousavi either, and there is a real discontent among the Iranian people to feed some unrest, but looking at how events are unfolding in Iran and how western powers and their media are fanning the flames, and how the zionists are cheering, I am still sure of one thing: as long as there is no justice for Palestinians and no real peace in the middle east, we will always have this kind of unrest across the Arab and Muslim world which Israel considers as its first threat not because of their leaders, most of them carefully nursed by USrael, but because of their public opinions strongly opposed to the occupation of Palestine.
As for the elections in Lebanon, I am pleased: I would have liked Hezbollah and Aoun to win big but Lebanon's reality is this: across its tormented history, and except on one or two short occasions, it was never able to reach an equilibrium between political parties representing western allegiance like March 14th and parties that are against this allegiance like Hezbollah and Aoun, and this has been made even a more hard goal to reach in the context of today's mideast tensions - actually Aoun's and Hezbollah's political platform may help Lebanon reach this equilibrium by insisting on a secular governance and dissociation from foreign allegiance, but this is another story. And so I am pleased by the last Lebanese elections' results, the country and western and Saudi interference being what they are, a big win by Hezbollah may have brought more misery upon the country and its citizens. However, a win for Hezbollah and its Christian allies that position them as a strong opposition is a good enough win despite the fact that it represents a status quo for the country . But this political status quo is an imposed one because as I mentioned earlier, there is no real peace and prosperity in the middle east as long as Israel continues the ever expanding illegal occupation of Palestine.
Not only Palestinians, but the entire middle east is waiting for peace. It is frustrating but it has been going on for sixty years now and it will be going on as long as the US and the international community are unable to coerce the zionist entity into making peace with Palestine and Arab and Muslim countries.
1. And as the clamour of Iran's unrest is becoming regular coverage in western news outlets, nobody is noticing that Israel is defying the US with a new settlement plan.
2. Here is additional reporting from Reuters putting the unrest in Iran into a larger mideast context.
3. More from inside Iran on how western coverage is perceived:
If the government cheers, the media cheer, if the government condemns, the media condemns...
4. An informed comment from Juan Cole on the US and Obama's attitude toward the ongoing protests in Iran.
P.S: I was on vacation in a place where internet is a rare commodity. Sorry for this long absence.
