Andrew Sullivan of The Atlantic Monthly has contributed to the coverage of the recent chaos in Iran following last week’s election by posting not only video but also tweets from people on the ground in Tehran and other cities. Provided we can trust these, they paint a picture of an oppressive government that is more than willing to take extreme measures (including spraying the crowds by helicopter with chemicals) to maintain peace and order. I’m not going to even presume I know that the election results were fraudulent, but that in no way justifies the kind of brutal suppression of Iranian citizens that we are witnessing.
Please join me in praying for the Iranian people, esp. our Christian brothers and sisters.
