It becomes certain that the young Iranians who are taking to the streets in demonstrations, with unprecedented slogans, are laying the foundations of a decisive revolution against the regime no matter how long it takes to achieve its goals. Therefore, according to the information gathered, the actual fall of the Iranian regime has become no more than a matter of time, even though the regime in Tehran has appeared strong so far with the crowds of its guards and security forces, the many prison cells it has and the loud voices of those who still support it and are shocked from the ongoing situation.
There has been a great shift in the collective mindset of the Iranians. Even the so-called silent group in such circumstances has no doubt in these brave protesters and start to look at them with reverence and respect, adding new participants every day to increase the number of both day and night demonstrations, despite the intensity of the arrests and injuries to the demonstrators.
Persia, declared by Khomeini in 1979 to be a sectarian sanctuary run by iron, fire, superstition, intimidation, and seduction, with the sacraments of forgiveness and the keys to paradise, is experiencing a new phenomenon. This phenomenon is the boldness of the Iranian youth to target all the symbols that used to be the regime’s taboos. The first of these is the personality of Khomeini, the founder of the regime of Wali al-Faqih, which is surrounded by angry curses from the new generations, and chants explicitly calling for the fall of Khomeini’s replacement and the head of the current regime, Ali Khamenei, the old man who hoards money and governs a people suffering from a spike in unemployment and the spread of corruption and malpractice.
As part of the unprecedented and unusual targeting of these symbols, protesters, according to video footage, burned the flag of Khomeini’s Revolution in exchange for raising the old flag of Iran, as well chanting slogans that have filled the streets of the cities and caused the collapse of the morale of the supporters of the Regime and its security forces. At the forefront of the shocking and bold slogans were those that targeted Khamenei and demanded his departure from power, while the Regime staged demonstrations to remind the Iranians of the old shabby and false myths.
Perhaps the most dangerous issue that the fanatical Regime in Tehran is facing is the collapse of its myths and the liberation of the minds of the younger generations from the old catchphrases and the certainty that the clerics tried to instil in the minds of Iranians as a matter of faith. The fall of the concept of imamate and the mandate of the jurist in the new Iranian consciousness is the real revolution that is hammering a nail in the coffin of the Regime and will lead to the conclusion of its time forever.
The Iranian regime has continued to deceive its people for almost 39 years by promoting the centrality and importance of the position of the Supreme Leader, based on the miserable theory of Khomeini, who invented the theory of the Wali al-Faqih. This concept continued to practice multiple levels of deception, guardianship, counterfeiting and stealing power from the Iranians. Now, it is unreasonable for the Iranians not to notice that all the countries of the world are developing around them and advancing their peoples into the future without a guide, a jurist or an imam Therefore, no one can force them to remain satisfied with this myth. Therefore, the uprising in Iran these days translates the popular rejection of the sham behaviour of the clerical regime in Tehran, which remained adamant that the system of the religious jurisprudent is a necessity for both religion and life, while every rational person knows that using religion politically is one of the most prominent methods of fraud in order to control peoples’ wealth, as the Iranian regime has been doing for decades.
It can be said that the Iranians’ new revolution is a revolution against everything that symbolizes myth, sectarianism, superstition and against the symbols of the religious priesthood, and that this uprising must lead to a new regime that elevates the life of Iranian society for the better. This is the dream of most Iranians who are expressing that from within and abroad by various means.
In conclusion, who would have believed that the day when the Iranians would shout against the fraudster leader would come? And they would write slogans against the Iranian regime? As well as direct confrontation with the security forces, which lost their prestige and used all the tricks and methods to dispel the protests, but failed with the flow of Iranians and the increasing numbers of those who joined the revolution in the streets of the main cities. The coming days will reveal the fragility of the Iranian regime more than ever before. The louder the protesters are, the more shaken of the mullahs’ regime and the more barriers of fear to be broken.
