A Most Unusual and Moving Journal Entry

Here's Roger Cohen's column in the Times, 7/6/09.

Mr. Cohen is an unusual man, strong of mind and empathic of spirit.

He has written numerous columns on and from Iran over the past several months.

Before the so-called election he was writing about the democratic spirit in its people. He was also writing about the decent life Iran's Jews were enjoying. He was anticipating good results from the election.

Since the theocracy stole the election and crushed the resistance Mr. Cohen has been disconsolate. This particular piece is a most unusual entry by a journalist in his journal and which he has shared with the rest of us.
