Videos of protest & unrest in Islamic Republic of Iran post-election

Former Reformist president Mohammad Khatami (1997-2005)
was allegedly apprehended by secret police.

I read Associated Press articles, but I refuse to post excerpts, not because of AP's demand to protect its copyright but because it's a proven channel of Zionist propaganda.

For now, the only "reliable" source of information is Presstv.ir for a balanced view. Google News service.

And I laugh at U.S.'s claim to monitor "vote irregularities". U.S. should f*ck off, because 2004 presidential election was definitely rigged to declare Bush/Cheney a winner. I would have rioted over that; I remember being extremely angry, and this anger was justified after the "rogue" reports of vote fraud in Ohio came in where mainstream media failed.

U.S. needs to stop meddling in foreign affairs. Hands off Iran. I may not be "happy" that Mr. Ahmadinejad is re-elected because he failed to repair domestic issues, particularly national economy in dire state with substantial unemployment rate, but Iranian people made their choice. It's absolutely none of the world's business how the outcome is decided.

The cabal of blood-thirsty Zionists allied with Neolibs/Neocons may be enthusiastic that Ahmadinejad has been re-elected to bolster their sick pride that the attack on Iran is a possibility to appease their depraved dream of conquest. I hope the entire Iranian nation will settle the internal dispute and unite to CRUSH the Imperial-Zionist forces. The true power lies with the "unelected" Ayatollah who is the supreme leader and commander of the military and political affairs.

Zionists and Neolibs/Neocons, your move in the chessboard. "Hands off Iran" is the best and rational option. There will be a severe repercussion if imperial belligerence become fact, so don't mess with Iran over sovereign nuclear power rights contracted with Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Update III

Via Andrew Sullivan's The Daily Dish blog, Reformist presidential candidate (supposedly a winner according to alleged leak of 'real' election result) Mirhossein Mousavi's telephone plea through Farsi-speaking BBC Persia:

I don't believe any fraud would be significant enough to even close the gap between the top 2, let alone change the outcome.

Was the election stolen? According to the Iranian Interior Minister Sadeq Mahsouli, there has been no ‘written complaint’ about voter fraud. He declared that the presidential elections were conducted in a manner that ruled out the possibility of voter fraud. “No violations that may have influenced the vote have been reported, and we have received no written complaint,” he said in response to a question posed by an Italian reporter.

It’s also worth mentioning that contrary to what our media would have us believe, Ahmadinejad doesn’t have much power in Iran. The President is not the most powerful person in the country. He is not the commander in chief and does not control the army and the intelligence and security services. He does not have the power to go to war. Those powers are reserved for the supreme leader of Iran Ayatollah Khomeini.

You never know, this election may have been stolen. Moussavi is hugely popular among the youth in Iran, who want to live in a less conservative country. In 2005, the voter turnout was 62% - this year it's up at around 82%. That would seem to indicate that the Iranian people want change.

I haven't looked at it enough to have a well-informed idea one way or the other, but the possibility of vote fraud must be considered. If the Ayatollah favored one candidate over the other strongly enough, would he consider interfering with the democratic process? I don't know.

It's worth noting that if elected, Moussavi would not have affected Iran's nuclear policy in any significant way, and Iranian foreign policy is set by the Ayatollah, not the President.

SPIEGEL: You could make an important contribution by accommodating the wishes of the international community on the nuclear issue. How can the world believe you when you say that you are not building a bomb if you are not even willing to suspend uranium enrichment?

Mousavi: Our nuclear policy is transparent, and we have opened our facilities to United Nations inspectors. However, we will not abandon the great achievements of Iranian scientists. I too will not suspend uranium enrichment. However, I will attempt to avoid unnecessary tensions. We have a right to enrich uranium.

SPIEGEL: As a compromise, would you at least consider the outsourcing of uranium enrichment -- to Russia, for example?

Mousavi: No.

Poll Predicted Landslide Victory for Ahmadinejad

I would say that this demonstrates that Iran has a divide between Urban Iranians and the rest of the country.

That means that intelligence services will begin to foment color revolutions in Tehran and that the crackdown will also occur there.

Or it could be a brilliant tactic by the Iranians to "Feign weakness" - to give the appearance of disunity to buy time from an attack.
