The growing waves of awakening and freedom-seeking are now spreading from the Middle-East to Europe, a senior Iranian commander said.And then what? The Erhalization of Mars?
"Less than a month after Supreme Leader's perception about spread of the waves of freedom-seeking to Europe, we are witnessing freedom-seeking camps being erected in European countries," Commander of Iran's Basij (volunteer) forces Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi told reporters here in Tehran on Saturday.
Similar to the spread of Islam to Europe via Spain several centuries ago, the growing waves of awakening seem to be spreading from the Middle-East and North Africa to Europe via the same country, where thousands of Spanish protesters have started rallies since a few days ago.
Some 25,000 protesters have defied a government ban and camped out overnight in a square in the capital, Madrid.
The demonstrations who woke Saturday in Puerta del Sol plaza had made up on the largest crowd yet in nearly a full week of protests.
The protesters are angry with the government's economic policies and have occupied the area for the past week.
Earlier this month, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei stressed that the European continent will soon experience popular uprisings and revolutions sweeping the Middle-East and North of Africa at present.
Addressing a large number of Iranian teachers and university professors here in Tehran, Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated that the growing wave of Islamic awakening in the Middle-East, North Africa and other parts of the Muslim world has been inspired by Iran's Islamic Revolution, and said this awakening will definitely spread to the European countries.
"This awakening move will certainly advance to the very heart of the Europe and the European nations will rise against their politicians and rulers who have fully surrendered to the US and the Zionists' cultural and economic policies," he said.
In relevant remarks earlier this year, a prominent American analyst had said that the wave of Erhal (Get Out) revolutions in the Middle-East and North Africa is now growing to the European continent.
"Due to the financial corruption dominating most of the European governments and the pervasive bottlenecks and crises that have arisen in the western countries these days, it is predicted that the growing trend of such discontents will soon turn into a series of revolutions known as the Erhal Revolutions" in the Middle-East and North Africa, Dr. James Anderson said late March.
He said the European countries have not witnessed a major development and political leap after the Renaissance, the World War II, the Cold War and formation of the European Union (EU), but now the time is ripe for the European people to get ready for political revolutions and change in their ruling structures.
Dr. Anderson also described the current protests and rallies in London as a prelude to Erhal revolutions in Europe, and said many European countries will soon be Erhalized and the world will soon witness that Erhalization has no boundaries.

Fars News: "[Basij] Commander: Freedom-Seeking Moves Spreading to Europe"
Iranian news sites frequently feature pronouncements from various Iranian officials that make the same points. The comparison to "the spread of Islam to Europe via Spain" is pretty interesting, however. I could not resist adding the picture of the good general which accompanies the article. Yeah, that guy's interested in freedom:
