Trudy Rubin - Neda

Columnist Trudy Rubin, has posted a very interesting read about the state of the Iranian government. From the essay:

Whoever is in charge, the deaths of Neda and the others have pushed some senior clerics to compare the current situation to the repression under the former shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. "Was the regime of the shah able to resist the wave of dissatisfaction by using terror, oppression, censorship, torture, forced confessions, and lying propaganda?" asked a senior cleric, Grand Ayatollah Hossein-Ali Montazeri.

The elderly Montazeri is a longtime critic of Iran's current leadership, but in the past has been put under house arrest and muzzled. The fact that he can now issue such stunning critiques reflects an Iranian regime uncertain how to proceed.

A must-read, it can be found in its entirety here.
