We've reached the burning down Shia seminaries stage - apparently the seminary in question was of particular symbolic significance to the regime.

It seems to be a bit of a pattern that hierocracy/clerical fascism sooner or later leads to anticlericalism.
Did I see something the other day about the ancestral home of Ayatollah Khomeini being set alight? Apparently now a museum.
Yes. While I'm well aware the Iranians I've interacted with aren't exactly average or typical, it's important to understand that there are some Iranians that absolutely hate Khomeini, there really aren't words for how much they hate him.
Like a colleague of mine; I had breakfast with him every Friday for about 18 years until Covid.

Some images he's sent me on WhatsApp

I just tweeted the "Iranian women have more balls" pic. I can't remember if you have a Twitter account - let me know if you want a hat-tip.

I do, but as it looks to have been forwarded loads of times via WhatsApp it's not really necessary.

It's ParkinJim on both Twitter and Mastodon (qoto for now unless there's a reason to move)

An Iranian was killed by the security forces while celebrating Iran team's loss in the World Cup
My avatar was a scientific result that was later found to be 'mistaken' - I rarely claim to be 100% correct
ETA 5/8/20: I've been advised that the result was correct, it was the initial interpretation that needed to be withdrawn
Meta? I'd say so!
