British correspondent Robert Fisk visited the campus of Tehran University in order to investigate reports of students being killed. He discovered the gates of the university were closed and there were hundreds of students milling around wearing scarves over their faces to hide them from scrutiny. Many held banners stating, “Today is a day of mourning” or “Police, shame on you, shame on you.” Students whispered there were at least seven dead and many who ha been beaten by Ahmadinejad thugs and the police. As he watched the scene, police accosted Fisk and asked for his papers. He saw police approach a youth, grab him and then a baton came slamming down on the boy’s head.
Supporters of Palestine’s right to an independent state are quick to denounce any Israel violation of law, but they are remarkably quiet as far as the inhumanity being displayed in Iran towards innocent students. Where are the left win British professors who are so ready to urge a boycott of Israel universities? Why are they silent at the murder of innocent students? Any calls for boycott of Tehran University? Shame on the police of Iran. Shame on pro-Arab supporters who are silent at this bestial behavior towards students!
