    But you're right, I doubt it could happen today in Iran. I still hope that the current regime will loose a maximum of credibility by reacting unadequately, and that it will bring some positive reforms in the future
    For that to work there would need to be a military base supporting the civilian population. As it stands, the military supports aminajackoff and his whacko terrorist buddies.

    EXTREME PRESSURE needs to be placed on Iran's governing terrorists. It's time for the Ayetolietbowl to be removed from power. It is time for the Mullahs to be removed from office and it is time for terrorist-boy Aminajackoff to be permanently committed to an insane asylum.

    As Americans, we should do no more than the support the right of Iranians to the government of their choice. The Islamic Republic was installed by the popular will of the Iranian people 30 years ago, and if it is to be toppled, it will be again by the popular will of the Iranian people.

    America especially should not be seen meddling in Iran's internal politics. Iran is a sovereign nation and we should respect their right to work out their own political issues.

    You and I are in total agreement on that.

    Mousavi Arrested Protest Mounts

    Report: Defeated Ahmadinejad rival arrested in Iran - Haaretz - Israel News

    The Marze Por Gohar party is far better for the people of Iran than the Mullah, Ahmadinejad, and Mousavi.

    Does anyone have a credible source about this arrest of Mousavi ? I just don't buy anything that Isaeli sources have to say about Iran.

    Re: Reports: Turmoil grips Iran as reform candidate arrested

    This link is in Farsi:

    This link is a post from "respected" Ayatollahs in Iran, who are calling for new elections and asking the people not to provoke the "government agents".

    There is still hope that this election is going to be invalidated, and a new election called. They Mullahs are afraid, and that is a very good sign. Pressure from the people may yet result in real change in Iran.

    The Government "Protector of Votes" has also called for a new election
    . This link is also in Farsi.

    I have sent a PM to Perham, who should be able to translate these links, as he lives in Teheran.

    Re: Mousavi Arrested Protest Mounts

    Even as the questions over the results of the election continue and arrests of some of Mousavi's supporters are being reported there seem to be no mainstream or independent evidence that Mausavi himself has been detained.
    From what I have been able to gather he is in seclusion issuing statements via the internet. There are some opinion blogs questioning the wisdom of election protests in the face of deaths and arrests.

    Re: Riots erupt in Tehran over 'stolen' election

    With respect to the ruthlessness of the Iranian regime, The Sunday Times reported:

    Iran's hardline leaders warned last night that they would crush dissent after opposition supporters protesting against their candidate’s defeat in disputed presidential elections clashed with riot police on the streets of Tehran...

    Clashes continued late into the night and fires of rubbish burnt as thousands of militiamen armed with knives and truncheons swarmed through the city in motorcycle packs of about 20. Lorries laden with riot police roamed the streets.


    Finally, the newspaper also revealed that a private poll had indicated that Mousavi would win 58% of the vote.

    I would hope that their storeis be neither pro nor anti-Israeli but the facts.

    If Mousavi was arrested by the Mullah mafia I think that in the long run this will come back to bite the Hullah Mullahs in the backside of their robes. Such an act is political foolishness in the long run.

    Look at all of the scum bucket countries and empires that surpressed freedoms of their pple - USSR, ETC ventually the scum buckets lose.
