The massive demonstration in Iran looks like a revolution in the making.The loser Mir Hossein Mousavi and his supporters alleged massive cheating and rigging of the ballot by Ahmedinejad's government, reminiscing of the March 2008 Malaysian General Elections where Pakatan Rakyat accused the BN (Barisan National) of using phantom voters to cheat in the electoral vote.
The results of the Malaysian elections showed that the allegations were untrue and fabricated, BN lost control of 5 states and lost its two-thirds majority in the federal parliament.It's a case of bad losers not accepting the verdict of the people.The Perak crisis is another example of the short-circuitry of the Pakatan's brain.
What's happening in Iran now is a bad and dangerous example of false sense of victory that can lead to serious civil violence.I would have much preferred Mousavi to win because of his education and his more liberal background but, unfortunately, that is not what the Irianian people want.
Mousavi was over-exalted by the massive crowd of mostly students and youths every where he and his wife goes.They even called him and his wife the Obamas of Iran and had high expectations that he would win.
Polls conducted by a Western organisation between May 11 to 20 shows that Ahmedinejad has a 20 point lead. Ahmedinejad was also perceived to have won the televised debate where Mousavi's performance was rated poorly.
This time the Western media has been fair to Ahmedinejad.
Malaysians take heed from what transpired in Iran.Idol worshipping can be dangerous and is a primeval practice by primitive society.
