Quds Day, the last Friday of Ramadan, is a holiday invented by Ayatollah Khomeini to protest the existence of Israel. Funny thing, though: While the Islamic Republic is ostensibly preparing for the usual anti-Zionist festivities, they seem to be awfully worried about what kind of protest might erupt tomorrow. Green Movement leader Mehdi Karroubi finds his house under siege. Encrypted internet transmissions are being blocked (as are Gmail and Yahoo). Riot police are out in force in Tehran. The Iranian people have a bigger problem with the thugs running the country than they do with Israel, and the thugs know it.
And as the conflict simmers between the Iranian government and its own people, President Obama remains shamefully silent, refusing to voice support for the opposition that represents the biggest threat to a regime that is a serious threat to American interests.
