Reporting from Beirut -- A right-wing newspaper close to Iran's supreme leader today accused the country's main opposition figure of being a dupe for Iran's foreign enemies who should face trial, as an military official said the "ground has been set" for a takeover of the British Embassy residence in north Tehran.
A crackdown continues against supporters of the opposition accused of taking part in post-election protests. The website of state-owned Press TV reported that 35 people were arrested.
In Tehran, police have begun summoning residents to warn that they will be arrested if they don't stop rooftop protest chants that have become a nightly ritual of defiance throughout the capital and other cities.

This is reminiscent of the way the “media” feels about Sarah Palin in this country. “How dare she run against our ‘messiah’.”
obama, the absolutely wrong, deceitful, cowardice, man at the right time for Iran.
Damn luck of Iran to have a spineless islamist appeaser as leader of the free world at this critical time in her struggle for freedom and democracy.
