Top 10: Trump admin supports protests in Iran

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

1. Qaradawi among eight defendants handed death sentences

An Egyptian military court on Sunday issued preliminary death sentences against eight defendants on a charge of murdering a senior police officer in Cairo in 2015, the court said in a statement.

The court referred the eight defendants to the Grand Mufti, the country’s top religious authority, for his opinion on the sentences. The Mufti is usually consulted before death sentences become final. His opinion is, however, not binding.

Defendants in the case include prominent Islamic scholar Yusef Al-Qaradawi, who heads the International Union for Muslim Scholars, as well as senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The case includes 52 defendants, eight of whom were handed down preliminary death sentences.

Chants: “Down with dictator. Down with the Mullah regime of Iran.”

4. Gunman kills two Christians at alcohol store south of Cairo: security sources

CAIRO (Reuters) - A masked gunman shot dead two Christian brothers at their alcohol shop south of Cairo on Monday, security sources said.

The incident took place just days after attacks on a Coptic church and another Christian-owned shop also south of the Egyptian capital that killed more than 10 people, as security forces brace for attacks against the Arab world’s largest Christian minority ahead of Orthodox Christmas celebrations.

The gunman used a rifle in the attack, shooting at the shop from outside after pulling up on a motorcycle, two security sources said. The attacker fled the scene afterwards.

6. Trump, Haley: America Stands with Iranian People After 12 Killed in Protests

President Donald Trump expressed support for “the great Iranian people” on Monday morning as reports confirmed that 12 people have been killed in the Iranian uprising so far.

Trump’s public affirmation followed that of U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley who declared Sunday that the United States stands behind the Iranian people and that she prayed “freedom and human rights will carry the day.”

“In the New Year, our hopes and prayers are with the millions of people who are suffering terribly from oppressive governments in North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, and especially in Iran, where the long-repressed Iranian people are now finding their voice,' Haley said in her statement.

8. Defiant Iran protesters steal Revolutionary Guard's trousers even as death toll mounts

The Basij militiaman, a paramilitary storm trooper of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, was reportedly swinging an electric shock baton when the crowd of angry protesters closed in around him.

“They got a Basij, hold him!” one man shouted as the demonstrators pulled away the militiaman’s baton and knocked him to the ground in the largely Kurdish city of Kermanshah.

But rather than beat the man to death, the crowd struck a different kind of blow against Iran’s authoritarian regime: they stripped him of his trousers and sent him stumbling and humiliated into the cold night.

“The protesters wanted to show that they are peaceful but that they are not weak and they are not afraid,” said Raman Ghavami, an Iranian analyst who has been tracking the protest.

#10.
In the video its apparent the attackers came from a particular uncivilized, stoneage continent with retarded culture. Many of these sub-humans may have been living in France for years (or even generations) and living off on french taxpayer’s dime. Obviously, no amount of compassion & infinite welfare could ever change their savage behaviour.
These are not isolated incidents perpetrated by some misguided youths. That’s their true character coming out in absence of robust laws. Think of all the BLM protests in US, when afro/americans killed/injured several law enforcement personnel & burnt down whole cities. Same People, Same Mentality, Same Actions.

Muta Ween—-Excellent analogy, but there is just no hope for Scheer.
I am hoping for some action from the CPC within the next 3 months, otherwise prepare for 6 more years of Trudeau, and the NDP being the Opposition Party.

The people of Iran are protesting to get rid of their version of M103 . Maybe our Opposition Party can take the hint and do a little protesting in the House of Commons.

Sorry, Jowhari is looking to have Iranian embassy in Ottawa re-opened.

Drew, I agree, there is certainly more to this.

I consider Maryam Monsef an Iranian government plant, protected by LPC. Then, there is Liberal MP Majid Jowhari from Richmond Hill who is trying to re-open the Canadian Embassy in Iran.

Majid posted this on December 30/17 (he claims the Iranian government was elected!)

Number 6… You just know that Barak “Assalamualaikum” Obama is gritting his teeth tonight at these latest developments in Iran, from behind his high wall house in suburban Washington…

Number 3-didn’t Germany have safe zones set up? Oh right the safe zone is called Poland.

Tammie good call, but that will not be the only reason, the crap coming from the left will be quite hilarious, and i doubt the UN will get too upset about murdered protesters unlike when Israeli guards shoot attackers.

Tammie; that should be a real winner for the Canadian taxpayer.
