"Earlier this month Mahsa Amini, a twenty-two year old woman from Saqqez, Iran, died in custody after her arrest by a special unit of Iran’s security services that enforces Iran’s strict dress codes for women. Amini’s death has sparked protests over compulsory veiling and several days of significant unrest throughout Iran. Acting U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Nada Al-Nashif stated, “Mahsa Amini’s tragic death and allegations of torture and ill-treatment must be promptly, impartially and effectively investigated by an independent competent authority, that ensures, in particular, that her family has access to justice and truth.” The developments occurred on the eve of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s scheduled speech at the United Nations General Assembly."

I've followed this a little bit. For those on Instagram, realnewsnobullshit has covered this in detail, including a bunch of videos. People setting police on fire, beating the shit out of their police, police doing motorcycle drivebys on protestors...wild shit and barely a peep in Western media.

In a broader sense not confined to just Iran, but the fact Lebanon has been allowing this to happen while at the same actively engaging Israel time talks to some really fascinating geopolitical things. Also with Lebanon actively calling Israel by its name recently is also pretty big. Still a very long way to go for these two countries, but Hezbollah is losing influence internally in Lebanon and I think looking to save themselves by brokering more deals with the West.

“Shit, these riots are sweeping the country. What do we do?”
“Uhhh, attack the Zionists to rally the people and distract from the riots?”
It’s like the one move they have. Everything is a Zionist conspiracy. Economy is bad? Zionist conspiracy. Late for work? Zionist conspiracy. Stub your toe and it really hurts? You better believe that’s a Zionist conspiracy!!
