The Islamic Revolution Style of "Democracy"

Iran's theocrats have discovered a more pure, a more pristine, a higher type of "democracy". One where you remove the people from the politics because they have such "undeveloped" views and are not completely dedicated to the glories of the "Islamic Revolution". Here is the Iranian parliament deciding that the best way to handle the "unfinished business" of the last "democratic" election in Iran. They call for the execution of all those who ran in an election and weren't able to use the instruments of state to stuff the ballot boxes to assure their own "victory"...

From the UK's Guardian newspaper site:
9.07am – Iran:
The Iranian regime continues to try to blame the opposition for yesterday's violence.

Members of the Iranian parliament today called for the death penalty to handed out to opposition leaders Mehdi Karroubi and Mir Hossein Mousavi, who were put under house arrest ahead of the protests, according to Reuters.

"Mehdi Karroubi and Mirhossein Mousavi are corrupts on earth and should be tried," the official IRNA news agency quoted them saying in a statement.

The loose term "corrupt on earth", a charge which has been levelled at political dissidents in the past, carries the death penalty in the Islamic Iran, Reuters points out.

Judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Mohseni-Ejei said: "Those who created public disorder on Monday will be confronted firmly and immediately."

State-funded Press TV directly blamed opposition "rioters" for the violence.
That certainly does tidy up the loose ends of a "democratic" election where the foolish populace does not follow the gentle proddings of the supreme leader, the ayatollah-how-to-vote-so-you-do-it-or-die Ali Khamenei and his stooge Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

It is so tragic that the confused Egyptians don't understand the true "Islamic" version of democracy. A political system where all the people get to vote as one following the clear directions of the supreme religious leader who knows exactly what God wants because this leader is "special". The Egyptians apparantly want a "messy democracy" where each person decides for himself what is best and tries to pick a political party that best fits his needs. How un-Islamic! Everybody knows that real Muslims love to vote like robots doing exactly what their "supreme leaders" tell them to do.

George Orwell wrote the Nineteen Eighty-Four as a dystopian novel to show the logical extreme that the despotic Communist party had created in the USSR. Sadly, the Iranian theocracy has studied the lessons of history well and have re-created all the ugly trappings, especially the newspeak which preverts language into an instrument of state policy. So Iran's leadership blandly makes completely ridiculous claims and cares not a whit whether the outside world laughs itself silly at the corruption of truth. The poor people inside Iran are forced to chant the religious "party line" and side with the Ayatollah's God-mandated terror state and accept the "benevolence" of an Islamic revolution where white is black, truth is lie, and justice is whatever the torturer in an Iranian prison decides to dish out.
