Lots going on in Iran these days. I think the folks at Oxblog are absolutely right that matters are approaching a critical stage, and that we need to be paying more attention. Lord knows, the mainstream media won't. * Oxblog is an excellent place to begin, of course. * Dan Darling also has a very good roundup and analysis - though his white hyperlinks can be hard to see. * Kaveh Khodjasteh at Freethoughts.org offers "Ad Inferna per Aspera", a quick round-up of challenges Iran's mullahs will face over the coming year. * See Maroonblog's post for the interview with Grand Ayatollah Montazzeri, the most senior member of Iran's Shi'ite clergy. If published and distributed by a free Iranian press, this would be devastating.
