Iran: Thoughts for the friend of a friend

A friend of a friend is hurt.

In Iran, idiomagic's friend Ali, who had been arrested during recent protests, has been released from custody. He is now in a hospital.

This is difficult to read. You're warned.

This is the damage the Powers That Be in Iran are willing to do to -- or to have done to -- their people to maintain the status quo. And people in Iran are still willing to protest, even with damage like this happening.

Please read. And, if you can, keep Iran's people in your thoughts.
