Iran News ...


Letter from Tehran: Alas!


ALAS! - I hear the sound of news from the sitting room. For some moments I don't know whether I am dreaming or what?


Jumping out of the bed, reality reveals itself fully.


So Shocking!!!!


- How? For sure, it does not contain Tehran's votes!


I hear myself desperately giving hope to myself which almost immediately evaporates by what is heard from the television. Alas!


Didn't the representative of the Guardian Council at the site of voting say: "With this unprecedented participation of people, I don't think we can announce Tehran's votes until Sunday!" It is seven in the morning and they say by 10am, the final results will be officially announced! He assured us so convincingly that it is impossible to cheat!!! By what he said, votes are counted at least four times before they are announced!!! Alas!


So many times in the past few days, I confronted those who said they are not going to vote because the result is already known! With such a furious tone I argued, feeling happy that I wasn't sharing their pessimism anymore! Alas!


The news about Mir-Hossein Musavi's headquarter in our residential area revealed the reason for the strange traffic I was watching from our windows with great puzzlement and apprehension last night. To find out, I automatically turned on the TV and accidentally saw Rafsanjani voting and saying that we should accept the result whatever it would be! What a smelly comment! Apprehension intensified and the magic box was switched off.


After all, it seems the prophecy of a friend who kept saying I am sensing a coup d'etat has turned true. What else is it except a new form of coup d'etat without open use of military forces?


As the shock penetrates every cell of the body, it turns to a state of coma. It is not at all surprising if no reaction takes place as before. What Rafsanjani said after voting is the evidence. After all, they are all united in one point, survival of the present regime. This is what the history teaches. Alas!


It is enough to open a window and feel the dead comatose air hovering over the city if not the whole country!


Alas! The hope was so short-lived. May it not end in blood-shedding and brother-sister-killing!


Let's take the usual everyday traffic of pigeons and sparrows to the small balcony as a good omen! How? Don't know!
