Email from Iran: One Iranian Mom
June 16, 2009 - More observations from inside Iran, this time from a mother in Tehran:
“People say these things are going to continue for 3-4 months, (but) nobody knows what will be the outcome. If the demonstrations continue, the government would be forced to do something. ...
“(Reformist presidential candidate Mir Hossein) Mousavi has ordered quiet and peaceful demonstrations, but some youngsters who are hotheads are burning things and breaking windows of stores and stealing things and breaking windows of banks. ... So the police are trying to protect things.
“But tar va khoshk ba ham misoozand. (When there is a fire, the wet wood and dry wood burn together.)”
Question: “Has your daily routine changed?”
