*** ETA: Can someone explain to me how this is happening? The video underneath should be a dark video of Iranians yelling "Allaho Akbar" in the night, and come from Youtube. That's the video I see when I look at this entry on its entry page. But when I look at this same entry on my friends' page, what I see if a goddamn Christiane Amanpour video on vimeo!!!! How the hell??! The word Vimeo does not appear in my embed code. Also, earlier this morning, the entire contents of this entry had disappeared, I had to rebuild it from scratch. Is the Russian LJ mob trying to support the Revolutionary Guards?!?
2:18 PM ET -- "Allaho Akbar!" Such haunting video. Midway through, you'll hear a woman's voice, whose words were translated by emailer Lily:Source: Nico Pitney on HuffPo.
The woman in this video is saying something that really touched me. She is saying that they can take our phones, our internet, all our communication away, but we are showing that by saying "allaho akbar" we can find each other. She ends it my saying that tonight they are crying out to god for help.
The NIAC relays word today from a friend in Iran: "Until it's clear what the fate of the new elections are, we will chant 'Allah Akbar' three times every night - once at 10:00, 11:00, and midnight."
