Latest Iran News
AntiMullah & Sources Inside Iran ^ | June 13th, 2009 | Alan Peters & Iran Sources

Posted on 06/14/2009 3:22:05 AM PDT by FARS

SATURDAY/SUNDAY Reports reaching us from islamic iran now indicate a wave of arrests has taken place creating a very "pregnant" situation where anything can still happen, though the arrests have taken out opposition leadership:

1. Former President Hashem Rafsanjani has been arrested and taken to be held at the house of Supreme Ruler Ali Khamenei, where he was forced to resign as the head of the Expediency Council and Council of Experts. He is being held there until further notice to be at the pleasure of the Supreme Ruler.

Rafsanjani not only spent money to oppose Ahmadi-Nejad's re-"selection" but also made a big mistake of threatening the Supreme Ruler with the fact that the councils headed by Rafsanjani were the ones who had to declare the eligibility of the Supreme Ruler and could remove him from office with a quick vote.

He is not expected to emerge alive from his detention.

I’ve been reading various new accounts for an hour now- it seems the young people of Iran are enraged over the cheating in the election. Interesting updates from Twitter here: http://www.reddit.com/r/reddit.com/comments/8sbor/twitterers_posting_from_inside_iran/

Sounds like all hell is breaking loose there.

Michael Totten has some amazing videos here:

Frankly, I don’t mind if they off that pig Rafsanjani. He is a mullah crook himself.

The situation has to reach eventually the point (I’ll give it some time though) that the regime is opposed, not just the current cabinet.

Down with Ahmadinejad and the islamic regime!!!

IMO Twitter has the best coverage with lots of links to other breaking news and commentary.

Unfortunately Tehran has severed all telecomm (including domestic?) and Internet (definitely including Twitter).

Gee, political opposition leaders in house, or worse, arrest within 24 hours of an election in Iran. Is this a new, groundbreaking precedent for countries who watch Iran closely and are “EXCITED” about the “democratic” process in IRAN to consider for implementation in their own countries in the future? Gee, lose an election in a democratic country and win a “Go to Jail” card? How PROGRESSIVE and innovative! What a CHANGE!

Thank you George W and the American Military for the strategic decision to help the Iraqi people to establish a democracy that will spread throughout the region.

The biggest nightmare to the left in America:

The violent overthrow of the mullah theocracy in Iran accompanied by freedom fighters holding pictures of W and calling him the father of a new Iranian democratic rule!

How many tens of thousands of people marching in protest does it take for CNN to acknowledge that it's happening (in Iran)?

CNN will notice and report on the following:

One Republican trashing another Republican

Five Gay Men Protesting anything

Six Members of NOW complaining about any conservative

Eight Blacks angry with cops

Thirty Union Members picketing a company

Here's the groups that "don't make the CNN cut":

1,000 democrats criticizing one corrupt democrat

400,000 tea party protesters

A million Iranians bravely standing up to their oppressors.

Sounds like Iran’s Tianamen Square to me. So-called “reformers” and real dissidents will be rounded up and eliminated one way or another, followed by “nothing to see here” by the mullahs who really run things. Meanwhile, Obama won’t lift a finger.

BBC says election broadcasts disrupted from Iran

This sounds less and less like a revolution and more like a coup by the mullahocracy against the somewhat more democratic elements in Iran. If this drives whatever remains of the opposition further towards the west, good. A shame for Persia that people like Obama would be their to meet them.

This sounds less and less like a revolution and more like a coup by the mullahocracy against the somewhat more democratic elements in Iran,

It is a coup by the group around Ahmadinejad that want to protect their money, I agree with this:

anyone who pays close attention to Iran could see the writing on the proverbial wall: Ahmadinejad's "privatization" scheme, the IRGC's heavy influence in the economy, the populist condemnation of "corrupt" clerics from Ahmadinejad's camp, and so on.

I stick to my point from yesterday: Iran is no longer a theocracy. To blame this on "The Mullahs," or worse, Iran's "Right-Wing" is to fundamentally misunderstand what is taking place there. This is a secular power grab done under the guise of Islam and revolution. The perpetrators are the enemies of western rapprochement, and the proponents of economic isolation. The Revolutionary Guards benefit from Iran's economic isolation, much like the mafia benefited from prohibition and other criminalized behavior. As any stereotypical movie gangster might say, "why ruin a good thing?"

I believe we are witnessing the disposal of Islamic pretense, and in fact a more honest and apparent Iranian police state. How that affects their place in the region and the world is still to be determined.
http://www.realclearworld.com/blog/2009/06/watching_the_inevitable_in_ira.html

Commment: The next phase, if Ahmadinejad can hold the steering wheel, is to arrest the oligarks, nationalize their assets and money and "give it to the masses", i.e. a mixture of Chavez and Putin. He will purge the Iranian administration, and give more money to the Quds force, i.e. the terrorists. Naturally, this will destroy the Iranian economy and the Theocracy, and there will be another violent change again.

What will happen to the present green Calvin Klein protest?:

What? A water skiing squirrel is big news for CNN. It's a method of mass distraction for the American Idol drones

and you are just figuring this out? You think CNN is bad, try MSNBC

TehranBureau: It's too bad CNN's cameras are focused on the staged sham, while protesters being brutally beaten (and God knows what) elsewhere. ______________

Yep, that would be correct. There is a reason Fox knocks them out of the water in the ratings

MarietteEusebia: #iranelection CNN Int. is covering Afghanistan while people hit the streets and clash in Teheran... #CNNfail again...crazy!

That's for our Marxist Kenyan usurper. Iran doesn't make him look good, they must find something in Afghanistan to fill their daily propoganda quota.

3:13 update: Weighing in on the supposedly leaked “real” election results:

We’ve been very hesitant to publicize any of the so-called “true” election results that have surfaced, since it’s the easiest thing in the world to make up numbers and plug them into a graph and present it as fact. But this comes from mowj.ir, where “an informed source” inside the Ministry of Interior’s Election HQ says

All 9 communiques of the MOI were written and planned in advance; numbers were faked via a software program which distributed vote counts among polling stations in such a way to make everything look plausible.

Supposedly, the initial results that the MOI announced were based only on the first 500,000 ballots received, and that set the rest of Friday’s events in motion. According to this site, the real results were:

* Mousavi – 21.3 million (57.2%)
* Ahmadinejad – 10.5 million (28%)
* Rezai – 2.7 million (7.2%)
* Karroubi – 2.2 million (6%)

Obviously, this should be taken with a huge grain of salt. But Mowj is the unofficial website for the Mousavi campaign, so we wanted to present it here for you to interpret yourself.

You might be missing the fact that the Iranian Army is NOT the military strength that it implies.

The regular army - as opposed to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the now almost TWO MILLION man Bassiji Suppression Force (including about 300,000 Arab and Taliban mercenaries) - has been virtually DISARMED by the Mullah regime and cannot be considered a viable fighting force.

Now poorly equipped the Regular Army, with officers from the time of the Shah still there (ranks below Colonel) never liked the Mullahs and after trying to compete for a short while with the IRGC, were mistrusted and relegated to a secondary or even tertiary role.

Just as Obama appears to be trying to do here in the USA.

However, splits HAVE occurred in the IRGC command and the regime has begun to have doubts about their continued loyalty.

An underground theme widely reviewed (launched initially by AntiMullah) was proposed to Iranian women to make life at home as uncomfortable as possible for IRGC, Bassiji and prison guards/torturers.

If you wonder about the the AntiMullah role, one of the suggestions was for women to add Saltpeter/Sulphur to their menfolk’s meals to kill their sex drives.

Within a week of the post/message you could not find any of this chemical anywhere in Tehran! Reports came in fast and furious about this.

Regardless, families with men working for any of these paramilitary groups or police are increasingly shunned socially by their neighbors and have begun to live in isolation like being in “purdah”.

This, as intended, has added to the pressure on the regime.

If you watch the videos of police handling of demonstrators, it appears much milder than we have seen in the past. Partly because Moussavi is the virtual founder of the Ministry of Information and Intelligence and wields influence behind the scene, so is treated with some restraint.

Of course the Supreme Ruler's certain knowledge that Moussavi won by a landslide serves to also stay his hand - for now.
