In a condemnation point of view, President Obama today along with German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated the dislike in actions of the Iranian government towards pro-democracy protesters in Iran. several people were either killed, detained or hurt in the violence. We must remember that Iran is not a Democratic country, and the people there should realize that their government is not allowing them to speak and act freely as they would like. Still, this is no reason why a government like Iran would take aim in hurting its own people. It is obvious that the government does not want to change, and that some of the people there are voiceful and want the government to change. The latest fighting came on the anniversary of Ashura, a major Shiite Muslim holy day marking the death of Imam Hussein, grandson of Prophet Mohammed, as a martyr. Large crowds pour into streets each year for the observance.
