Sheep in the Midst of Wolves?

Apparently, many of the young Iranian protesters might be getting all ahimsa (non-violent) on the regime. Below is an image of someone holding up a quote from Gandhi. According to Andrew Sullivan’s blog, the translation is: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

Don’t make me open up a can of Gandhi on your ass!

It appears that the young Iranians are brave and savvy students of resistance. It’s a good sign that they really are going to win.

    I saw Rachel’s show last night too. I think she is wonderful and beautiful. Her interview with the professor at one of the UCs in California was excellent. Thanks for the link. Iranian young people are remaking the world.
