A witness in Iran said, “It is beyond fear in Iran. It is more like terror!” Women a fleeing Iran and coming to the United States. Neda was shot to death and she was an innocent bystander. Her name means “voice.” Her voice is now heard around the world! She lives on in the minds of many people.
The Mid-East has always been a hot spot in the world. Iran has been right in the center of it. They are defiant, and continue to move forward in make nuclear bombs. They will not negotiate.
It is interesting that they have a big increase in inflation; 15.4% unemployed, and depend on outside sources for much of their gas. This doesn’t sound like a country that is thriving in the middle of the oil gold mine area.
A sign that the people are getting stronger is that many of the clergy are join the Iran people in protesting. So is many of the militia. If this continues Ahmadinejad may want to take a step back and start listening to his people, or he will be yesterday’s news.
What started out as being a power struggle between Ahmadinejad and Moussavi, is now a power struggle between Ahmadinejad, and the people of Iran.
What does all this mean? What is the future for Iran? Whose history does this really belong to? Well, let’s break down the word history: His Story! (God’s) It is true. God is letting the world know about this for a reason. It is His story about depending on Him for protection. It is His story telling us that dictatorship didn’t work when Pharaoh wouldn’t let the Israelites go, and it won’t work now.
Saddam Hussein found that out in Iraq, and Hitler found that out in Germany.
God allows people to make their own decisions. He certainly doesn’t like all of our decisions, and we pay one way or another for our bad decisions.
Stay tuned and see what God has in mind in Iran.
I would like to switch countries for another adventure. There are other countries where there is fear and terror. Afghanistan and Pakistan are battling fear and terror everyday. The Taliban are causing havoc in both countries.
There is a book that is a must read. It is called, Three Cups of Tea, by David Relin writing for Greg Mortenson.
This is a fascinating story of one man’s quest to provide school for the children of Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
Mortenson, visited these countries as a mountain climber, and saw the horrible conditions that were in the villages. The Taliban had taken control and was only allowing schools for boy and not the girls, and they were taught how to become soldiers that would kill anyone that fought against them.
This true story is about Greg Mortenson’ s trials and tribulations in trying to get new schools built for the young girls of these countries. He was convinced that education was the best course to fight off the brain washing of the Taliban.
He had a near death experience when he wandered for days looking for the right path to get him down off K2 in Pakistan, one of the highest mountains in the world.
He drifted into an impoverished village in the Karakoram mountains. They took care of him until he was well enough to go the rest of the way. He was moved by their kindness and he promised to return and build a school there.
The struggles he faced trying to get the right materials for the local merchants; the hardships that happened when he got the goods, and realized that he need to build a bridge to get to the villages are written by David Relin a journalist who befriended Mortenson.
Read the story of how he accomplished miracles in Afghanistan and Pakistan right in the middle of the Taliban’s stronghold.
