    President Obama's message to Iranians on their new year was :

    Human beings are members of a whole,
    In creation of one essence and soul.
    If one member is afflicted with pain,
    Other members uneasy will remain.
    If you have no sympathy for human pain,
    The name of human you cannot retain.

    This situation is truely disturbing. For Basiji and other militia forces to be able to do what they are doing with no one being able to keep an eye on them has created a terroristic society. With more and more satalite feeds being destoyed along with the people trying to be heard outside news agencies should continue to keep this story in the limelight. Lack of news from protesters can only be seen as suppresion not their change in attitude. They may no longer be able to access the outside world and I really doubt that is their choice. The World outside of Iran needs to keep asking where these people are and what has happened to them.
    If the World News Agencies drop the ball they are no better than the Basiji and others trying to quiet the voices for change. Where are the injured/detained/dead? Why is there no information coming out? The people seeking change put their trust in the News Agencies I would hate to see their trust broken.
