During a visit to University of Tehran today, President Ahmadinejad was greeted by student protestors calling him a “dictator.” Ahmadinejad was giving a speech at the university.

Amir Kabir Newsletter put the number of students protesting against Ahmadinejad’s visit at 500. Ahmadinejad ignored chants of “Death to the dictator” and gave his speech on the merits of science and the pitfalls of Western-style democracy.

Ahmadinejad faced a similar outburst during a speech last December when students at Amir Kabir University called him a dictator and burned his picture. A number of student activists are still detained at Evin prison. The protestors at Tehran University today were carrying placards asking for the release of student detainees.

"I think John F. Kennedy put it best - Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.
The Iranian people protesting wouldn't write their signs in English if they didn't want anyone but Iranians to read them.
They are sending a message to the rest of the world to say they are not all whacko's like Ahmadinejad and the Guardian Council. They are normal people who want to live free lives without oppression." Meanstreak1977

The Basij militia were formed to fight durint the Iran-Irak war in the 1980s. From war heroes to thugs, this transformation happened sinde 2005, when Ahmadinedjad retrained them to fight riots (or in other words, to fight their own compatriot citizens).

Moreover, there are 'imported' fanatical Arabs in the Basij militia, very well paid by the Iranian government. From Syria, Lebanon and other countries. Foreigners paid by the government to beat, arrest and kill own Iranian citizens. . Video
