Supremo blames "media belonging to Zionists, evil media" for coverage of Iran demos

Jihad Watch

Well, this was inevitable: after flirting with the idea that the trouble must be coming from the U.S. and Britain, Khamenei reverts to default mode: it's all the Jews' fault.
I saw the Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khomeini's speech live today. He wanted the followers mind, posture, tongue's and gestures to reflect their spirituality. There were thousands of Iranians crammed inside the massive place where he gave the speech. At the right intervals the would chant and were better coordinated than a studio audience of an sitcom in their response. It reminded me of the footage of speeches of Hitler. These guy's were even more subservient with some bowing their heads while listening.

It is a disturbing site to see so many people sitting like mindless zombies listening to a man and occasionally bursting into chanting. They seemed like empty vessels willing to be filled up with whatever was being offered.
