When Hariri media cover Iran

Amer sent me this from Lebanon (I cite with his permission): "Future news has been broadcasting non-stop documentaries on Iran and the opposition. The people they interviewed as representing the opposition were of three kinds: a small minority of religiously-inspired activists, who are even more messianic than Khamenai, a good chunk of middle-class and rich kids who want more social freedoms; and the "thinking" types (who are likely to lead) were Bushists. They went to the polytechnic institute where the brightest are chosen to study, several of them voiced opinions against Najad, a student followed them outside to tell them that the regime is a threat to the world, "it does not accept Israel, it supports terrorists in Lebanon and Iraq."
