Iranians Thirst for Freedom

The outpouring of public demonstration by the people of Iran in the face of violent repression by authorities following the suspicious outcome of last week's elections is reminiscent of the mass movement in 1978-79 that deposed the Shah. Unfortunately that only replaced one dictator with a worse tyranny. May our prayers be that this time the Iranian people succeed in achieving real peace and freedom.
