Media still reporting about angry muslims, but meanwhile, in Iran...

Media are still reporting about angry muslims, meanwhile in Iran there is also a strike going on. Important is that most media are ignoring the strike of bus drivers (workers) in Teheran and the coercive treatment of bus drivers in Teheran and its suburbs, who have been beaten, jailed and dismissed for attempting to negotiate better wages. Furthermore, media are reporting about violent acts of muslims without informing their readers or listeners about the regime in Iran who is in fact stimulating a certain group of muslims to burn flags and to attack Western embassies..

Striking bus drivers in Iran, ignored by media
A blogger: ET is writing about the cartoon issue:
We were talking about the cartoon furor which, despite what you might think, is not such a furor in Iran. Not that Iranians are not observant Muslims, just that they are sick to death of the manipulation of Islam for political ends.”

A comment by Gene: "I'm wondering if people in Iran are getting any news about the strike by Tehran bus workers and the subsequent imprisonment of hundreds of them".
Blogger ET answers:
"The strike is the most important issue in Iran. It is almost not mentioned in Iran, but there is nothing that represents the average Iranian more than the arrested bus drivers.... This may in fact be the biggest story to keep quiet in Iran. No thanks to the Western Media for ignoring it".

Although some media mention the strike, for example the Washington Post, other Media ignore this important event.

Media still reporting about the cartoon issue, without telling the truth, enlarging the Gap
Reading my Dutch newspaper, I can read every day an article about furious Muslims but what about the reasons for those acts of violence..?
I think we all know what kind of regime people living in Iran have to deal with.
If you want to know more about this regime and about bloggers who are trying to change this regime see: RegimeChangeIran. The blogosphere can also support and join this campaign.
Most people living in Iran dislike violent Muslims..fanatics, supported and stimulated by the regime in Iran!

Teheran newspaper calling for a Holocaust cartoon contest
This newspaper is, according to Kader Abdolah (refugee from Iran, now living in the Netherlands, famous author) belonging to the municipality of Teheran. And who was the mayor of Thereran? Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran! He is still involved in this newspaper, controlling it!

Creating fear....
Meanwhile a Dutch Newspaper ("Algemeen Dagblad") is writing an article, Titled: "More Dutch people getting afraid of Muslims".. They only questioned 750 people (inhabitants: 16 million in the Netherlands). And so this conclusion is based on wrong facts, I think...

I am beginning to understand more and more why Media are enlarging the gap, and also creating fear...

Thank you for your comment Don Radlauer, I will have a look at you blog! I did notice about this strike in certain blogs by bloggers living in Iran (or as an Iranian living somewhere else in this world).

Hi Helena -

Well, I can't claim to be Iranian - expat or otherwise. I was tipped off to the story by Norman Geras of NormBlog, and the story was interesting enough that I added some of my own thoughts.

By the way, I'm interested in becoming one of your volunteers. I haven't been able to get the on-screen form to come up - perhaps the problem is something to do with your having changed providers. Please contact me at if you're interested in proceeding.

Happy blogging,

Wow, this is such a great thing to see and witness, Heleen! All of a sudden you know things about the goings on in Iran that only very few people know about. As of yet, we hope!
